226. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 14, 2022

Friends, it was akin to a lightbulb exploding above my head: the Democrats are NOT bringing millions of illegal alien military-aged males into the United States to affect the vote (maybe in years to come) but to rise up in January 2025 and to then launch an insurrection across our country. The Dems- I used to be one until I AWOKE- KNOW that President Donald J. Trump is going to return to office along with a continuing tidal wave of Republicans…

AND KEEP HER THAT WAY!

  54. 2017 Monday: Under pressure from right and left, President Donald J. Trump- once againcondemned white supremist groups by names, declaring them to be “repugnant to everything that we hold dear as Americans.”  The CEO of Merck, the nation’s third-largest pharmaceutical company, resigned from a federal advisory council, citing Trump’s failure to explicitly condemn white nationalists who marched in Charlottesville, Va.  Kenneth Frazier was one of the few African Americans (does it matter what flipping color a CEO is?) to head a Fortune 500 company.  In addition to this prick abandoning the president under false pretenses and fake news, so, too, did the CEOs of Intel and Under Armor who also resigned from the American Manufacturing Council later in the day.  What a bunch of fricking pussies.

  56. 2019 Wednesday: In Stockholm, Sweden, American rapper ASAP Rocky receives a suspended sentence for being found guilty of assault on a Swedish citizen.  Meanwhile, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan blasts the government of India for having placed the Indian-controlled region of Kashmir under lockdown following violence caused by…you guessed it…Pakistani Muslims.

  58. 2020 Friday A: President Trump says he is prepared to cut stimulus checks to American families of up to $3,400 per family of four if ONLY the Democrats would come to the table and help him.  Meanwhile, polling shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his VP nominee Kamala Harris leading the Trump-Pence team by 8 to 10 points depending upon where one looks.  Speaking of “Pro-China (or Groping) Joe” Biden, he says ‘Trump has done nothing to staunch the spread of the Chinese Virus, that he would order U.S. industry to produce more PPE gear and would require ALL Americans to wear masks for the next three months whether within or without their homes.

  60. 2020 Friday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 601,075 confirmed cases, UP 7,934 cases, 10,996 confirmed deaths, UP by 188, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 4,312 confirmed cases, UP by 0(according to yesterday) forty confirmed deaths, UP by zero, and 1,716 confirmed recoveries, UP by 0- NO NEW NUMBERS.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 65,339 confirmed cases, UP by 833, 1,653 confirmed deaths, UP by twenty-nine, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  THE NUMBERS REMAIN THE SAME FOR WASHINGTON, TOO, NO REPORTING OF NEW NUMBERS.

  62. 2020 Friday E: The U.S. Department of Defense announces it is going to establish a task force to investigate the numerous UFO sightings that have been ongoing around the world.  Although investigators have studied the phenomena before- aka Project Blue Book with dubious answers- it seems much more important now as hundreds of millions of people around the world have seen unidentified aerial vehicles as well as unidentified submerged vehicles.  It is extremely important that the American people and the world understand if we are in danger from these otherworldly vehicles.  Go for it!   Speaking of UFO [viii], bassist Pete Way of the British rock band died at age 69 from complications from an accident.
  63. 2020 Friday F: A federal appeals court rules that California’s restrictions on large-capacity magazines are unconstitutional which is amazing as all of us who own firearms never handed them over anyway and if anything went out and bought more of them so we would have them on hand when or if that drooling moron Beto O’Rourke comes calling for them.  Watch out, boy!  Elsewhere, Hezbollah thug leader Hassan Nasrallah suggests that Lebanon and ONLY Lebanon should investigate the massive blast that devastated Beirut on August 04 which is silly as everyone believes the Hezbollah morons are the ones who blew the city’s port up when mountains of ammonium nitrate exploded, killing more than 180 people, vaporizing numerous others, and wounding nearly 4,000 people.  If anything, the Lebanese people should string this murderous POS up as he is now trying to blame Israel for his and his followers’ stupidity.  Meanwhile, Iran- another culprit in this mishap- says it will restore Beirut’s power free of charge.  Allowing them to do it is akin to the chickens inviting the wolf into the hen house.
  64. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 207,523,242 confirmed cases, +566,314, 4,367,066 confirmed deaths, +8,828 and 186,015,838 confirmed recoveries, +440,328.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 37,435,835 confirmed cases, UP 71,135 from yesterday’s reporting, 637,439 confirmed deaths, UP 278, [ix] and 30,144,609 confirmed recoveries, UP 14,517.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]  
  65. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 318,682 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 85,396 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  70. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Trumpets please- today is Day No. 144 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 50 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Not being critical, just pointing it out for the readers.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that ‘Kooky Kamala’ has ‘done nothing to address the border crisis in weeks.’  Although ‘Kooky’ is not doing her job, California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner visited the southern border.  
  71. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the updated figures for the illegal alien invasion along the southern border.  First, here is the cost of caring for this riffraff for just this day: 693,442,560.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the invaders at this point in the year: $247,268,851,712.  Can you imagine all this money being spent to bring about one-world government run by the likes of communist countries?  Horrifying.  Third, here are the numbers of illegals who have poured across the border just this year: 2,534,307.  Fourth and final, here is the LOW ESTIMATE for the illegals hiding in the country: 36,534,307.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  (Note- if you have been reading our work for any time now, you know that back when we created the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day in 2009, we said THEN the numbers of illegals in the country stood at 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Not good).
  72. 2021 Saturday H: Illegal Aliens-Invaders-and-‘Refugees’ News– Here are some more stats for the border crisis regarding numbers for the year 2021 so far.  First, 888,454 single adults have crossed the border, most of them young males of military age (see the original “Red Dawn” movie starring Patrick Swayze (1984), not the PC 2012 remake if you want to know what damage a tidal wave of illegal aliens could do).  Next, here is the number for family units who have crossed the southern border this year: 328,121.  Moving on, here are the numbers for unaccompanied children and single minors who have crossed in 2021: 113,791.  Here are the numbers for unaccompanied minors for the past four Julys: 2018: 4,406.  2019: 5,846.  2020: 2,509.  2021: 18,962.  Finally, a federal judge has ordered the Biden regime to revive- immediately- President Donald J. Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico policy’ for all illegal aliens.    
  73. 2021 Saturday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– As the Biden regime continues trying to rush American troops BACK into Afghanistan so we can pull them out yet again, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is blasting the Antitrump for the hurried evacuation of Afghanistan, leaving it in the mess that it is, and now for going back into the maelstrom.  The United Kingdom is pulling out its embassy staff as we speak.  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district says that Joe Biden’s bumbling is going to lead to a ‘resurgence of al-Qaida.’ Speaking of the war in Afghanistan, here are some stats.  Cost of the war: 2.26 trillion dollars.  Next, cost in U.S. lives: 2,442 and 20,666 wounded.  Afghan dead at or around 241,000 and wounded at or around 1,271,000.  As Taliban forces continue investing around the perimeter of Kabul, the Afghan president is appealing to the global community for help.
  74. 2021 Saturday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Newsmax reported today that following the highly unwise 60th birthday bash for the 44th president at his multimillion-dollar mansion on Martha’s Vineyard last week, the island is seeing a huge spike in Wuhan Virus cases.  Wow.  Barack Hussein Obama is a super-spreader.
  75. 2021 Saturday K: Health and Medical Alerts– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has announced the creation of a rapid response team to expand monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19 for all Floridians.  Elsewhere, first responders in Hawaii are suing the state over its onerous vaccine policies for all first responders and medical personnel.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Democrats are floating yet another ‘stick’ in the war to get everyone to undergo the ‘jab’ so they can rake in the big bucks: unvaccinated employees are going to have to pay more for their health insurance, yet another tax slapped on the American people.  Here is another one: in California, they are saying that smoke from the wildfires is going to drive up cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as well as deaths.  What will they think of next?
  76. 2021 Saturday L: Joe Biden News I– Everyone should remember that while the Antitrump was campaigning for president, he promised the world that his administration would be the most transparent in the history of the presidency.  Some members of the Fake News Media are asking ‘WHY’ they cannot see the visitor logs for Joe Biden’s home in Delaware?  He goes there frequently to get his ‘Manchurian Candidate-like mental tune-ups’ so reporters want to know who is visiting him there.  Chi-Coms?  We do not know.  Russians?  Possibly.  Ukrainians?  Highly possible yet flipping Joe Biden will not release the visitor logs and this is the most transparent administration in the history of presidential politics.
  77. 2021 Saturday M: Political News I– Disheveled, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, has extended the proxy voting to October 2021.  Next, a bipartisan group of U.S. senators is asking U.S. Treasury to investigate JBS- the meat-packing conglomerate- for corruption and criminal practices.  Next, a federal judge tosses the lawsuit against FOX News Channel that disgraced POS attorney Michael Avenatti launched against them.
  78. 2021 Saturday N: Political News II– In other political news of the day, former Republican governor of New York George Pataki says that ‘New York is corrupted by arrogance of power.’  In other news, famed legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘IF Attorney General Leticia James runs for governor, she is going to face loads of ethics woes.’
  79. 2021 Saturday O: Business News– Dodge is recalling 263,000 Ram trucks because of airbag problems.  The auto maker will fix the problems at no charge to the customers.
  80. 2021 Saturday P: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After trashing the entertainer’s life, attorneys for Bill Cosby announce that they plan on FULLY VINDICATING him via a civil lawsuit.
  81. 2021 Saturday Q: California State News– Sacramento says that Pacific Gas & Electric- PG&E- will NOT face charges for the Woolsey Fire of 2018.  The entity who should face charges for all California wildfires is the Democrat-run state government.  They abrogate their duty at maintaining the forests properly just as they fail to maintain and/or create new water infrastructure.  Every wildfire in the state rests solely upon the shoulders of the California Democratic Party.  Speaking of wildfires, the largest wildfire in the history of the state- the Dixie Fire- continues to rage across northern California.  God, please send some rain!  In other Golden State news, gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder says that IF he wins election, he is going to repeal all mask and vaccine mandates before breakfast.  Fellow gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner says that IF she wins the governor’s mansion, she will use state money to complete the California portion of the border wall.
  82. 2021 Saturday R: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3586 what with a $8 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner. Here are the numbers: 02, 13, 17, 19, 21, and Mega 12.  Out of 97,445 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $32,171.  The winning ticket was sold at ARCO AM/PM in Cathedral City, CA 92234. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #872 with a jackpot of $258 million up for grabs: 06, 21, 49, 65, 67, and Powerball 18.  Out of 97,651 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $53,536.
  83. 2021 Saturday S: The Wrap-Up– Here are the stock prices for the BIG FOUR PHARMA companies cranking out vaccines for Uncle Sam: (1) Pfizer: $48.48.  (2) Johnson & Johnson: $176.25.  (3) BioNTech: $377.32.  (4) Moderna: $389.78.  To achieve Zen in understanding WHY global leaders are pushing vaccines on their people, follow the money.  Every country partnering with a vaccine manufacturer means the country’s leaders invest heavily in the stock of said companies.  Just like companies producing weapons, politicians invest heavily in those companies, too, as the market for their products NEVER disappears. [xx]  The wonderful thing about vaccines, is that they can try to force them on everyone which means more money in their pockets.  What a flipping swindle, and the world needs to wake up to the danger facing it when the ‘sophisticate folks’- like those at Barack’s birthday party- think they can guide us into being subservient slaves.  (Note- you can take it a step further- did the various world leaders conspire with the Chi-Coms to release the virus so that they could amass heretofore unseen amounts of wealth while crushing problems in each country?  The Chi-Coms and the Dems were able to get Donald Trump out of the White House.  The Chi-Coms were able to crush the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong.  Britain has been able to secure more power as has Canada, France, Australia, look at what these people are doing.  Let us listen to Rand Paul: they cannot arrest all of us which means the people of the world must demonstrate to their leaders that they are not going to lie down and take it.  Let us get Donald Trump back in the White House.  NOW.  (Beware the military-industrial-pharmaceutical-political complex).
  84. 2022 Sunday: Friends, it was akin to a lightbulb exploding above my head: the Democrats are NOT bringing millions of illegal alien military-aged males into the United States to affect the vote (maybe in years to come) but to rise up in January 2025 and to then launch an insurrection across our country.  The Dems- I used to be one until I AWOKE- KNOW that President Donald J. Trump is going to return to office along with a continuing tidal wave of Republicans and to cause him as much havoc as they can by setting our nation ablaze.  Think about it: remember when all those ‘spontaneous marches and demonstrations’ began following the election of 2016?  Everyone thought at the time- me included- that they were a ‘grassroots response’ to golden girl, Hillary Rodham Clinton going down in flames.  Watching our country burst asunder in the summer of 2020 over a few minor police interactions with minorities and how the left just showed up with everything ready to go and burned down half of the country was the eye-opening event.  The Dems will DESTROY our nation any way they can because they hate it when people rise up and throw them out of office just as the Deep State despises losing its slimy grip on power.  Friends, this is EVIL which is why I encourage everyone to go to gun shows across the nation and to buy firearms and ammo for the dark days to come.  We are going to send these illegal aliens packing back across the border where hopefully, they will topple the corrupt government down there.  It couldn’t happen to more deserving people.  The Democratic Party is like a cancer on one’s testicles– gnarly.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys went on the road to celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2012 and then released a glorious live album to commemorate the celebration.  “Live- the 50th Anniversary Tour” came out on May 21, 2013, and featured the reconfigured band- Brian Wilson (vocals, keyboards, guitars, bass), Mike Love (vocals, percussion), Alan Jardine (guitars, vocals), Bruce Johnston (vocals, keyboards, bass), David Marks (lead guitar, vocals), as well as a pair of archival recordings included in the shows, one featuring Dennis Wilson and the other, Carl Wilson, on “Forever” and “God Only Knows” respectively.  The band was supported by their touring members and given the fact that the tour was 50 years on from their seminal beginnings, the album seethes with energy.  We hope you will seek this album out by visiting your favorite site for the absolute best in music- heck, you might even find it at your local library as several of us did- can’t hurt to save a few bucks, now can it?  Ah, well, seek it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Byrds and then Buffalo Springfield, had we been more perceptive at the time as to how we would combined integrated musical groups and performers, we should have done the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, as well as each artist’s solo catalog as well as that of the various members of the Byrds.  We look forward to correcting that mistake at some point in the next 3-5 years so please remain alert for that day.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] We hope to present the music of Sly & the Family Stone within the next decade or so.  Please stay tuned for further information.

[v] We will present the music of Chicago- and its various members’ solo careers- sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[vi] See earlier footnote.

[vii] We are not sure when we will begin offering the music of Blue Öyster Cult but expect it will be sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the legendary British rock band UFO as well as its various side projects including music by the Michael Schenker Group, Phil Mogg, Pete Way, Waysted, and a few other iterations of the group beginning on Monday, January 11, 2021, through Sunday, May 02, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.

[xx] Weapons are not popular whereas vaccines are.  However, we mostly agree that if we were to look into investments of every politician, either they- or members of their families or straw buyers- are invested in weapons stocks.  They just don’t talk about it.  Investing in companies producing ‘life-saving vaccines’ however looks good and makes big bucks just like investing in green energy companies.  Anyone recall how the Democrats got wealthy off Solyndra before the company tanked and the regular folks lost their life savings?  It is what it is so let’s awaken, smell the danger circling around us and do something about it.  They cannot imprison all of us.

225. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 13, 2022

Once again, as with Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby, as with Sirhan Bashara Sirhan, and as with James Earl Ray- and Cesar Sayoc- the FBI would have us believe these people are lurking in the woodwork ready to commit all manner of heinous assaults on our esteemed government officials. Friends, I hate to label stuff as BULLSHIT but this is bullshit.

Trump announced an amazing deal, one between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.  They are now at peace and will exchange diplomatic missions.  This is only the third time an Arab nation and the world’s sole Jewish state have come to peace terms.  The Palestinians are howling like the rabid dogs they are, and the Iranians are sniveling and whining.  We hope an accounting will come soon for BOTH of these outlaw nations (well, one thug nation- Iran- and one thug place- Gaza Strip).  Meanwhile, ISIS is trying to resurrect itself in Syria so it may be another time to unleash hell on these scumbags.  Light ‘em up, President Trump, light ‘em up.  Finally, Kooky Kamala Harris, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s running mate bitches it is time for the United States to return to a consensus with other nations before we move forward on anything.  Screw her.  She turns whatever direction the wind drives her.  Elsewhere, numerous businesses in Chicago but especially on the Miracle Mile have said, “ENOUGH!  We are leaving the crime-ridden city,” all the while, lesbo Mayor Lori Lightfoot blames all her city’s problems on OUTSIDERS.  If so, then do something about it but between you, Bill Di Blasio and Eric Garcetti, other cities will become the new metropolises while you destroy your cities for whatever perverse reasons you are doing so.
  59. 2020 Thursday A: The crumbling government of Lebanon declares a state of emergency following the rising anger enveloping the declining country following the massive explosion that lit up the port and much of the capital city, Beirut.  Police have increased powers to go into the streets to combat the angry mobs intent on receiving justice.  At least 172 people died in the blast, many more are missing and presumed dead, and at least 3,500 to 3,800 suffer appalling injuries.  Most competent sources believe that Hezbollah and their hoodlum leader Hassan Nasrallah bear much of the responsibility for this crime against humanity for having kept more than 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate in storage, for use against Israel at some unspecified future date.  String Nasrallah up and anyone else who colluded with him and who bears responsibility for this criminal, deadly blast.

  63. 2020 Thursday E: The Democratic Party’s 2020 Ticket of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his VP nominee Senator Kamala Harris of California hold a ‘press conference of sorts,’ one in which the aging groper urges all governors across the nation to impose a mandatory three-month mask-wearing law that dictates ALL people, either within our without their homes, must wear masks or face the consequences.  Reporters raise hands to ask questions, but the duo goes away without answering a single query.  Meanwhile, little Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, learns she has sixty seconds to make her ‘speech’ the second night of the DNC ‘convention.’  She takes it in stride, skank that she is…

  70. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 143 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 49 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $535,134,592.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $246,014,640,128.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,521,453.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,521,452.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  (Note- we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens, all of whom ICE must scoop up, imprisoned, and then deported ASAP).
  71. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Rep. Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says the American people ‘must pressure Joe Biden’ to go to the border and to do what his so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris WON’T do and that is to fix the mess he has created.  Meanwhile, as if things are not bad enough already, illegal aliens, i.e., border jumpers, river-swimmers, and fence-climbers, are accusing ICE holding them in cattle pens of NOT doing enough to protect them from the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  ICE disagrees with their claims, however.  Wow.  That must suck.  Elsewhere, leaked audio from Border Patrol agents has U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas saying on tape, “the U.S. is going to lose.”  Not good.  (Speaking of the DHS, they are raising the threat level surrounding the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks).
  72. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- in the span of a week, the Taliban is overrunning all of Afghanistan, fully two-thirds of the country is under strict Islamist control and even worse, they are at the gates of Kabul.  The Biden regime is trying to rush in 3,000 troops to aid in the evacuation of diplomatic staff and other chosen personnel, but it is highly doubtful they will be able to get there in time.  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden owns the Afghan debacle 100-percent.’  Meanwhile, as the Taliban prepares to roll into Kabul, U.S. embassy staff is hurriedly burning and shredding sensitive documents.  U.S. veterans of Afghanistan find themselves extremely pained over the unnecessary outcome befalling that troubled county, many of them having left parts of their bodies behind there.  Even more disgusting, the Chi-Coms are preparing to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of the war-ravaged country.  (Note- we hope the Taliban and the Chi-Coms go to war with one another which will happen in a matter of time, True Believers against godless communists, it will happen).
  73. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– COVID-19 ‘breakthrough’ cases are surging around the country what with 40-percent of all NEW cases being fully vaccinated patients.  These numbers are shocking but folks, put this one in your pipe and smoke it: illegal aliens pouring across the southern border now bear full responsibility for the 900-percent spike in new cases.  Horrible, absolutely horrible.  Next, the Food and Drug Administration approves a three-shot Chi-Vi regimen for all immunocompromised individuals.
  74. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– New reports show that the Chi-Coms pressured outside investigators NOT to tie the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to the lab leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology that has devastated the entire world.  Note Chi-Com expert and author Gordon Chang believes communist China is developing pathogens that can and will kill everyone else while leaving the Chi-Coms immune.  By monkeying with the DNA of various deadly pathogens, the Chi-Coms can target entire countries or whole races of human beings by using these so-called ‘civilization killers.’  In other ‘VID-related news, critics are slamming Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, for not disclosing that his wife has ties to one of the vaccine producing companies while all the while, Democrats such as “Mumbles” Pelosi and her husband apparently are heavily invested in these companies as we said yesterday. 
  75. 2021 Friday K: Health and Medical Alerts– A new IBD/TIPP Poll says that Americans believe the Chi-Vi to be our greatest national issue at the moment.  Speaking of which, the Biden regime finds itself mulling whether to demand that everyone who travels across state lines, i.e., interstate travel, must show papers to the border guards in which, they show 100-percent proof of vaccination for the Chi-Com virus.  “Show us your papers, please.”  You know folks, their time is coming, and it is coming sooner than anticipated.  In other COVID-19 news, Oregon, beset with large numbers of Xi Jinping Bat Flu cases is deploying the National Guard to hospitals around the state.
  76. 2021 Friday L: Health and Medical Alerts II– Stock prices for the BIG FOUR PHARMA companies producing vaccines for the Dink-a-Link Fever: (1) Pfizer $48.49 (2) Johnson & Johnson $176.15 (3) BioNTech $377.32 (4) Moderna $389.78.  Follow the money folks.  Hint- if investing in BIG PHARMA companies is good for the politicians, it is good enough for us, especially when consumers cannot hammer vaccine producers with lawsuits for any negative side effects.  In other health news, parents claim educators at a Lone Star State elementary school presented a profane public service announcement-type video promoting mask-wearing.  What was it?  Like when they bring in drag queens and trannys to read books to kindergartners?  Finally, San Francisco is becoming the first metropolitan area in the United States to require proof of 100-percent vaccination before people can go about their business.  Of course, this will not include the homeless, the addicted, the mentally ill street people, and illegal aliens from showing any proof of vaccination.  (What a load of crap).
  77. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is at Camp David for the weekend so his Manchurian handlers can re-program the mindless automaton all the while, the Taliban is preparing the final assault on Kabul.  Givers everyone loads of confidence…in other Joe Biden news, illegal alien advocates are blasting the senile old coot, claiming his asylum policies are downright cruel.  Old dude cannot catch a break.
  78. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. Department of the Treasury has slapped sanctions on an alleged oil smuggler and on various companies tied to Iran’s Quds Force.   In other Biden regime news, Catholic luminaries are blasting the Biden regime’s Department of Justice for tossing out a lawsuit brought against the University of Vermont Medical Center last year while President Donald J. Trump was still in the White House.  The lawsuit sought to stop the University from forcing nurses to participate in elective abortions when their religious convictions would not permit them to do so.  The Biden regime continues pissing off one group after another.
  79. 2021 Friday O: Political News I– Mike Lindell’s breathtaking three-day Cyber Symposium (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) laid out the shocking evidence as to how the Chi-Coms and their stooges, the Dems stole the election for Joe Biden.  In so doing, various attendees including Mr. Lindell himself have faced physical threats from crazed leftists.  Keep fighting for the truth, Mr. Lindell, keep fighting.    
  80. 2021 Friday P: Political News II– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is raising the salaries of all Capitol Hill staffers as the White House and Congress continue shoving one massive spending bill on top of another.  Speaking of Speaker “Mumbles,” nine House Dems are demanding an immediate vote on the infrastructure bill.  Meanwhile, Rep. Mark Green, R-TN 7th congressional district, says that the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill is bait and switch for the oppressive $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  Rep. Darin LaHood, R-IL 18th congressional district, says that the ‘infrastructure and budget bills are going to cost too much.’  Other GOP House members introduced a bill with which to target Apple and Google app stores.  Good.
  81. 2021 Friday Q: Political News III– Four Republican senators are sitting on the fence as to whether they will run for re-election in 2022 or will hang it up.  The four are Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Ron Johnson (Wisconsin), and Jon Thune (South Dakota) and one Democrat is joining them- Patrick Leahy (Vermont).  None of them have announced whether they will seek another term although Grassley is the oldest and Leahy the second oldest in the world’s greatest ‘deliberative body’ on the planet.
  82. 2021 Friday R: Political News IV– The (John) Durham probe into the ‘Trump-Russia collusion probe’ is looking into various ‘tipsters.’  In other political news, Barack Obama’s ‘wingman’ and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is saying ‘he’s surprised that millions of Americans aren’t out in the streets protesting the new voting laws being enacted around the country.’  Mr. Former AG, we are surprised you are not wearing an orange jump suit for your part in “Fast and Furious,” the program that allowed thousands of American firearms to ‘walk into Mexico’ where at least 10,000 Mexicans and two federal agents lost their lives at the hands of said firearms.
  83. 2021 Friday S: U.S. Supreme Court News I– Newest U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett rejects outright a plea from Indiana University students asking for a reprieve from the state’s new vaccine mandates for all college and university campuses.  Wow.  Excellent choice for a ‘conservative justice.’  Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, said ‘Amy Coney Barrett and other conservative justices are intimidated by the Democrats.’  
  84. 2021 Friday T: Federal And State Court News– A federal judge upholds Joe Biden’s ban on evictions.  The White House congratulated the Marxist magistrate for ruling in their favor.  Meanwhile, in Illinois, Hobby Lobby loses a tranny bathroom case.  
  85. 2021 Friday U: Miscellaneous News I– Taco Bell is paving the way with a ‘contactless drive through window’ system.  Elsewhere, legal gun owners with permits to carry will soon be able to open carry in South Carolina.  Meanwhile, some dumb ass college professor (a race-baiter) says that ‘America is only for white people.’  Oh, well.  Finally, a lawsuit alleges that Peloton overcharged its customers with a false tax.
  86. 2021 Friday V: Business News– Thanks to harsh lockdowns and restrictions in New York City, Manhattan is seeing a record 21-percent in retail office and housing vacancies.  Both soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and Big Apple Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio have been down on their knees begging everyone to return.  Not going to happen.  Once you kill something such as NYC, it will be hell trying to bring it back.  Elsewhere, job posts requiring fully vaccinated employees have doubled in recent weeks. 
  87. 2021 Friday W: Economic News– The government announced today that a drastic drop in consumer confidence- 13.5-percent- occurred last month in July.  This is the seventh highest such drop in half-a-century.
  88. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– One of the two thugs scooped up in Chicago for the slaying of Officer Ella French faces another problem: law enforcement has tied the little POS to a fatal hit-and-run back in April.
  89. 2021 Friday Y: Weather News I– It is summertime and the weather sure as heck is hot.  Cities in the Pacific Northwest are raising heat advisories.  (Note- folks, when it gets 90-degrees or so in the Northwest, people go berserk.  However, as soon as the sun goes down, temps drop down into the sixties.  It is what it is).
  90. 2021 Friday Z: Religion News– Much to the horror of liberals across the country, a new poll says that 72.9-percent of the American people (including 80-percent of black Americans) believe that Biblical values are extremely important.  We concur.
  91. 2021 Friday AA: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Singer Tony Bennett, 90-years-old, signals he is going to retire and cancels all upcoming shows.  We hope you are healthy, Tony.
  92. 2021 Friday BB: Fake News I– In fake news of the day, we learned today that Snopes’ fact checking website Honcho did more than ‘just fact check;’ no, they published at least fifty-four articles of their own in which, they plagiarized at least fifty-four separate sources.  What is it with these leftists always stealing intellectual property of other, more talented creators?  Regarding Fake News, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, says the ‘best way of holding ‘fake news’ accountable is with lawsuits.’
  93. 2021 Friday CC: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump praises Wisconsin State Representative Janet Brandtjen, R-Menomonee Falls, for having the guts to issue subpoenas as the Badger State gets underway with its own audit of the corrupt 2020 Presidential and national elections.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signals interest in a 2024 run and hires Iowa political consultants for operations on the ground.  Elsewhere, as things continue going to hell not only in the United States but across the entire world, President Donald J. Trump asks a pertinent question: “Do you miss me yet?”  You better believe it…
  94. 2021 Friday DD: California State News– Los Angeles County, California, is waiving citizenship requirements for employment.  Lovely, f**king lovely.
  95. 2021 Friday EE: Florida State News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is backing down on recent threats to cut funding to schools disobeying his ban on mask mandates in ALL Florida school districts.  The DeSantis administration is preparing for a court fight with the left-wing parents.
  96. 2021 Friday FF: New York State News– As if someone waved a magic wand, the Empire State’s Assembly is shutting down the impeachment investigation into outbound Governor Andrew “The Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov which means the immoral cretin will NEVER pay for the 15,000-16,000 nursing home deaths.  We guess, he should be thankful the citizens of his state merely booted him for being a sexual sleaze instead of law enforcement charging him with thousands of deaths.  When Cuomo was the state’s AG, he went after then-Governor Elliott Spitzer for schlepping high-end prostitutes.  What is fitting is the fact that Cuomo and Spitzer were Democrats and the AG who took Cuomo down also is a Democrat.
  97. 2021 Friday GG: Texas State News– Texas now is the first state to make paying for sex a felony.  We speculate loads of ‘johns’ will be contributing to sex workers’ college funds either for themselves or for their kids.  It is inevitable.
  98. 2021 Friday HH: U.S. Military News– After observers saw some mope running around with a gun, a District of Columbia military base underwent a hurried lockdown.  That is our brave military for you.  Elsewhere, GOP lawmakers are fighting to ban Criminal (Critical) Race Theory from being on the curriculum in U.S. military academies.

  100. 2021 Friday JJ: The Wrap-Up– Americans have long wanted to get out of Afghanistan, seeing it as little more than a perpetual meatgrinder of U.S. and Allied flesh.  Still, there are ways in which to do things and the way Joe Biden has abandoned the country to barbaric scum is incredible.  Much like the Obama-Biden regime abandoning Iraq to ISIS, now we have abandoned this country to similar human garbage, people that live in the dimly lit past, evil, despicable people.  The sad thing is, everything that is going on is like Joe Biden is the ’Antitrump,’ whatever Trump did, he must do the opposite, even if it beggars the mind.  President Trump would have gotten U.S. and NATO forces out in an orderly manner and if the Taliban popped up, he would have zapped them like the cockroaches they are.  Now, the Chi-Coms and the Russians can enter the crap-hole, rob it of its resources, while helping the jihadists launch plots in the West.  Folks, no one voted for this crap, not even most Democrats we would suspect.   We must return President Trump to the White House, and it must happen NOW.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  101. 2022 Saturday: The Joestapo and Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland must believe the American people are dimwits.  As if on cue- as with Cesar Sayoc, the mad pipe bomber, and the poor saps in the so-called Gretchen Whitmer attempted kidnapping case- the FBI finds another ‘tool’ in its shed of losers: Ricky Shiffer.  Mr. Shiffer was the poor schmo who went to the Cincinnati FBI office and sought to launch an attack on our glorious Joestapo agents but then fled.  After an hour’s standoff, the local cops shot poor Mr. Shiffer dead, a man who- conveniently- posted on Facebook, Twitter, or whatever other social media platform- so the Joestapo says- about his desire to mow down FBI agents following the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  Once again, as with Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby, as with Sirhan Bashara Sirhan, and as with James Earl Ray- and Cesar Sayoc- the FBI would have us believe these people are lurking in the woodwork ready to commit all manner of heinous assaults on our esteemed government officials.  Friends, I hate to label stuff as BULLSHIT, but this is bullshit.  Once again, the FBI pulls out some poor sap, send him out to serve a purpose, and then see him get killed.  Thus, they can go out and bellow, “SEE!  SEE!  WHITE EXTREMISTS OPPOSED TO THE JOE BIDEN REGIME ARE OUT THERE!”  When I was young, I used to buy this crap whereas now, I can smell a rat each and every time.  It is the same with Ray Epps, the number one antagonist and instigator in January 6, 2021, where the hell is that POS son-of-a-bitch?  Why is he not locked away in the D.C. gulag like the rest of the patriots?  Because the man works for the FBI as either an informant or as an agent, that’s why.  I don’t buy this crap anymore nor should any of you.  It is akin to a BIG DRAMA being run by some truly inept people behind the draperies.   Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Well, 50 years on, Capitol Records said, ‘it’s time to release a half-century of Beach Boys’ hits.  Thus, we have “50 Big Ones,” a 2-CD classic collection of the crème de la crème of the Beach Boys’ repertoire.  Many ‘best of’ compilations of the Beach Boys we have shared with our steadfast readers so imagine all of them realized here in one frigging place.  Friends, if YOU have YET to get in on the ground floor here, well, what better frigging way is there for one to do it?  Please, seek this CD out, buy it at a decent price, and add it to your daily listening playlist- you will be glad you did, that we guarantee.  Besides, in this world of endless wars, famine, trannys and gays running around everywhere, monkeypox, COVID-19, and socialism sucking up every frigging thing, a little Beach Boys’ music can clear away those dark clouds.  Seek it out now.  Enjoy.

  68. 2020 Wednesday: Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris make their first appearance as a ticket in Wilmington, Delaware, today.  The former vice president was able to follow the teleprompter most of the way but there were a few times when he began to falter.  Perhaps he requires a shock collar around his neck so every time his eyes begin going fuzzy and his words fall by the wayside, Dr. Jill can give him a quick ZAP to pull him back on course.   Just saying.   Note: the Biden-Harris campaign raised $10.8 million within four hours of announcing that “Groping Joe” Biden had chosen the unpopular California senator to be his vice president.  Hmmm.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 317,210 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 86,868 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiii]        
  77. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt AND Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.396 per gallon, $3.016 in Florida, $4.093 in Hawaii, and $3.881 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other location- North Dakota: $3.131.  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- Senegal: $5.250 per U.S. Gallon. [xv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,633,797,855,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xvi] 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 Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,923,443.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,725,319,325.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,507,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,507,919. [xvii]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  Reports also say that during the month of July there were 212,000 border crossings, something unseen in 21 years.
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– On behalf of the people of Cuba, the U.S. Senate passed a bill before fleeing D.C. for the summer that will provide uncensored internet to the freedom-fighting peoples rebelling against the communist government.  (Note- why not provide them guns, senators?).  In other news from across the world, the Taliban has overrun Kandahar and the Pentagon now predicts the fall of Kabul in a month or less.  Can anyone remind us again as to WHY we remained in that spineless crap-hole of a nation and shed the lives and limbs of our troops as well as trillions of dollars?  Let the Chi-Coms have the place.  Worse, the Biden regime is sending 3,000 U.S. troops BACK into Afghanistan to help evacuate our embassy in Kabul.  This is crazy.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Always seeking to set the template for the country, California becomes the first state in the Union to require EVERY teacher and staff member at all schools to undergo vaccination for the Chi-Vi or to face weekly, invasive tests for the wily Chi-Com disease.  The Oxford University vaccinations group say that ‘herd immunity is impossible to achieve with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu variants.’  Sounds like yet another excuse to keep the American people locked down.  Good luck with that.  Next, as government continues trying to force the American people to undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis, we learn today that Pfizer’s vaccine is effective 43-percent while Moderna’s is effective 76-percent against the Delta variant.
  81. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of the vaccines, let us look at the stock prices of the BIG FOUR pharmaceutical companies.  Remember, since the advent of vaccines for the Chi-Vi there are forty new BIG PHARMA billionaires ALL from selling the vaccines to the U.S. government.  First, Pfizer’s stock is low, valued at $47.24 today.  Next, Johnson & Johnson’s stock price is $175.17.  After J & J comes BioNTech at $374.02 and last but not least, the market values Moderna’s stock at $391.42.  We will keep our eyes on BIG PHARMA stocks.  Meanwhile, because of the increase in Chi-Vi cases thanks to the surge of infected illegal aliens along the southern border, Facebook has ordered office workers NOT to return to the office until January 2022.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, DS-PA, launches his order today that stipulates ALL city employees and contractors (and visitors) MUST get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine or wear masks (and suffer treatment like second class citizens).
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s polling ratings continue their ominous, downward slide yet no mainstream media news anchor is discussing his crumbling lack of popularity.  (They want to keep the regime propped up).  Meanwhile, first mentioned yesterday, Joe Biden is begging- begging! – OPEC and Russia to increase production so he can find a way to lower surging gasoline prices in the United States.  All the befuddled old fool must do is to get the hell out of the way and allow American production of fossil fuel energy to soar.
  84. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– The CIA is weighing the establishment of a communist China division in a bid to ‘out-spy’ the Chi-Coms.  We are sorry but this something that the Central Intelligence Agency should have been created back in the 1990s.  We cannot believe this but if true, it shows how pathetic our government is at recognizing true threats around the world.  Like the eye of Sauron, BIG GOVERNMENT is searching for homegrown terrorists.  What a load of festering crap.
  85. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– As Democrats continue waging war on Mike Lindell’s cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota- both cyber and even physical as in the case of Mr. Lindell himself- President Donald J. Trump says that the Democrats ‘MUST NOT be allowed to get away with the murder of Ashli Babbitt.  President Trump also said that the Dems’ $35 trillion budget bill is a ‘communist plot to destroy the United States.’  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Democrats’ spending will erode Americans’ freedoms and drive-up inflation.’  Meanwhile, Twitter suspends Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account for- shock of shocks- another week.  Rep. Greene as you all know represents the 14th congressional district in the Peach State. 
  86. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says- get this- that he has ‘serious concerns’ about his fellow Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  (Note- we predict that he will vote for it anyway).  In other Democrat-related news, following the resignations or retirements of almost one-thousand Chicago police officers as well as the horrible murder of new mom and officer Ella French, Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot is requesting a sizable increase for the Windy City police officers.  Speaking of Democrats, soon-to-be-governor of the Empire State- Kathy Hochul- is doing everything she can to distance herself from outbound Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  Some say she may have had a hand in ALL the nursing home deaths of COVID-19 patients.
  87. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $7 million in the month of July.  Regarding the GOP, they managed to block the “For the People Act” from coming to a vote before everyone in Washington, D.C., flees the capital for August recess.  When they return, the Democrats will force it through to Joe Biden’s desk.  Speaking of the Democrats, House Blue Dogs begged Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, to hold a standalone vote on the ‘infrastructure bill’ but she said, “No dice.”  Meanwhile, a new poll says that a ‘majority of Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism.’  (Note- that is brainwashing for you.  We must reclaim our schools).    
  88. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– President Donald J. Trump endorsed former U.S. Navy Seal Derrick Van Orden to win the seat of retiring Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district.  Van Orden ran for the seat back in 2020 and lost it by 3-points.  We expect he will do much better with President Trump’s endorsement in 2022.  President Trump also says that the American people are turning off Fox News.  In other news, mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, running to replace Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, DS-NYC, said that CNN ‘must fire Governor Cuomo’s brother Chris.’  Amen.
  89. 2021 Thursday Q: Miscellaneous News I– A Georgia mother claims her kids’ elementary school district segregated them.  Thus, she is taking the fight to the Department of Education’s Civil Rights Division for resolution.  It is that flipping Criminal Race, uh, Critical Race Theory BS yet again.  Speaking of the DOE, Secretary Miguel Cardona backs forced vaccinations for ALL public schools’ staff members- NO exceptions.  Elsewhere, it appears that Jaime Spears, the leech-like father sucking daughter Britney dry, has relinquished his role as conservatorship.
  90. 2021 Thursday R: New York State News– New York State Rep. Colin Schmitt, R-NY 99th Assembly District, says that the ‘Cuomo impeachment probe must continue.’  Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, questions WHY Governor Cuomo is stick around for two weeks- is he destroying evidence? 
  91. 2021 Thursday S: Texas State News– The Lone Star State’s election security bill passed in the Texas State Senate.  Meanwhile, as various Democrat-controlled locales in the state attempt to stymie the NO MASK MANDATE order signed by Governor Greg Abbott, via the courts, he is taking the fight to the scoundrel Democrats.  Moreover, he is also telling mentally deficient Joe Biden to ‘let Texas produce our oil.’  Next- and this is a good one- the NAACP is urging the Department of Justice to launch a probe into the arrest warrants for the wayward Democrats still hiding out in Washington, D.C.  “Racist,” don’t you know to expect the elected politicians to do their frigging jobs.
  92. 2021 Thursday T: Weather News I– Democrats across the country are huddling in corners, wetting their undergarments because of sizzling summer weather in North America.  Many cities are declaring heat advisories.  Oh, heaven forbid.
  93. 2022 Friday: Yesterday, we witnessed one of the most nauseating spectacles ever: Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland laying out the groundwork for why he launched the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  What an embarrassment this man is to both the legal profession and the country.  I will say now that he will become the second U.S. AG to go to prison, in the footsteps of John N. Mitchell, the nation’s 67th U.S. attorney general.  I suspect there will be MORE members of the fraudulent Biden regime going to the federal slammer than there were members of the Nixon administration, starting at the very top and going down to various denizens of the Deep State.  I suspect the only one not going to the slammer will be poor Kamala, “California’s shame.”  That girl, my friends, is a blooming moron.   Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.[xviii]

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0920 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Solo.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys next studio album came out on June 05, 2012: “That’s Why God Made the Radio.”  It’s been quite a while since the last studio album which is why the aging Beach Boys spent a lot of time in making this album with a reconfigured lineup: Brian Wilson (vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Bruce Johnston (vocals), Alan Jardine (vocals), and David Marks (guitars and vocals).  To perform the instruments, a humongous number of supporting musicians- including many of the touring band members- participated in the recording of the album.  Most critics enjoyed it, some even comparing it to “Sunflower” while several sourpuss losers panned it.  Say what you will about a band that’s been around for half-a-century, nothing is ever as it was but this is close enough.  Besides, this album hit No. 3 on the U.S. charts which was their highest placement in, uh, 38 years, so what more can be said?  Seek it out now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

223. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 2022

If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise. The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out. Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.

  51. 2019 Sunday:  The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend.  None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement, they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety.  Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
  52. 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it is NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly).  She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee.  It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, since dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India.  There you go.  If we, were you, Joe, we would sleep with one eye open from this point onward?  
  53. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02.  She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off one hundred officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it.

  55. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, thirty-four confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN).  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers your malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.

[xiv]  
  58. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 316,875 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 87,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xx]        
  62. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt AND Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.393 per gallon, $3.017 in Florida, $4.095 in Hawaii, and $3.878 in Washington state. [xxi]    Let us look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.931.  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- Northern Macedonia: $5.194 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,630,008,130,917 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  63. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,303,378.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,724,395,892.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,497,274.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,497,419. [xxiv]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).[xxv]
  64. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea says that the United States is failing to improve relations between the two countries.  Meanwhile, the Taliban conquer their eighth provincial capital in Afghanistan.  Many believe that Kabul will implode within three months.  Joe Biden’s mouthpiece, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, says that Joe ‘does not believe the collapse of Afghanistan is inevitable’ yet it will happen because of the way regime leader Biden conducted the pull-out.  Elsewhere, for some unknown reason, the U.S. State Department is sending $50 million to totalitarian Myanmar ostensibly to help around 700,000 people address COVID-19 concerns.  Why aren’t the Chi-Coms helping their fellow thugs?
  65. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The COVID-19 Nazis are at it again: YouTube has suspended the account of Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, over the bold senator’s recent criticisms of mask and vaccine mandates.  Speaking of mandates, drooling Joe Biden says (or his earpiece says) that HE will overrule like God on High bans on mask wearing in public schools.  Go for it, Joe, go for it.  Next, the Pentagon says that ‘most troops will respond positively to being compelled to get Chi-Vi vaccines.’  Moving on, the FDA is seeking clearance to mandate a third Chi-Vi vaccine injection for transplant patients.
  66. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke led tens of thousands of Wisconsinites in demanding an audit of the 2020 Presidential and national elections.  Across the nation, more people are standing up demanding that their state’s 2020 Election results undergo a forensic audit.  At Sioux City, South Dakota, as Mike Lindell and his patriotic colleagues were producing ream after ream after ream of evidence, he discovered live on air that a federal judge was going to allow the Dominion Voting Systems multiple lawsuits to proceed against the pillow magnate and his allies.  It is clear from listening to the two days so far that the 2020 Elections a cabal of rat-eating Chi-Com scum, Democratic-Socialists, and their obsequious RINO allies manipulated the elections to their desire if not actively reversed the results.  The time is coming, and it is coming soon when all of this will find its way into the courts.  The Department of Homeland Security is warning local police department to keep an eye out for election deniers.
  67. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden News I– Flipflopping from yesterday, slobbering old Joe Biden supports New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s resignation over his obsessive grabbing, fondling, and kissing of unwilling women and men.  Joe, they will be coming for YOU next, you old Cho-Mo.  (Speaking of “Killer” Cuomo, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, calls for the arrest and prosecution of the devious governor once he is out of office.  In other Cuomo news, his ex, Sandra Lee, feels betrayed that the groper took credit for granting homosexual marriage rights in the Empire State.  Apparently, she twisted him by the gonads to do this.
  68. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– The U.S. Senate passed the massive $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that will further impoverish the United States while stuffing massive amounts of cash into the pockets of Democrats, their sycophant RINO allies, and labor unions while everyone else will suffer.   Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, blasted the Democrats’ reckless ‘tax and spend’ policies.  He ripped into the scurrilous Democrats moments before the passage of the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill of which ONLY seven percent is ‘infrastructure.’  The rest is free pork to leftwing locales, liberal politicians, and of course the omnipresent Chi-Coms.  (The Republicans are telling the Democrats to ‘go it alone’ on raising the debt ceiling).  However, the Senate passed a GOP-led amendment that prohibits government from using federal funds to promote Critical (Criminal) Race Theory in government and in education.  Unfortunately, the Democrats can always remove or negate the amendment later like they almost always do when it comes to the horror of abortion.   Finally, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, voted against the ‘infrastructure bill.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, endorsed Ohio GOP Senate candidate and author J.D. Vance in the race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Rob Portman.   In other political news, former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos says she will NOT seek the governorship of Michigan in 2022.  In other news, the speaker of the Texas state house signed arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats who are holding up progress.  Meanwhile, longtime Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district, says he will not seek re-election.  He has served the citizens of his district since 1997. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– A gunowners rights group is fighting for the right to open carry firearms at the Minnesota State Fair.  Speaking of Second Amendment rights, President Donald J. Trump is congratulating Governor Mike Parson, R-MO, for pardoning the gun-wielding couple who defended their home in last year’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests.  Leftwing trash brazenly targeted Mark and Patricia McCloskey in their front yard.  The couple stood by armed to the teeth while the mob seethed about them in the street threatening to murder them, rape Patricia McCloskey, kill the family pets, and to burn their home down in the private community.
  71. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News IV– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her Squad-backed group are hailing cop killers.  What is wrong with these leftist skanks?  Strip these hateful skanks of their protection squads and let them fend for themselves.
  72. 2021 Wednesday O: California State News– Oakland, California, city officials are calling on Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to declare a state of emergency over rising violent crime rates across the city.  These people are Democrats!
  73. 2021 Wednesday P: Texas State News– Texas counties have won court orders blocking Governor Greg Abbott’s mask ban mandates.  They want masks.  Governor Abbott also fired a shot across the bow of the tranny movement by comparing gender transformation surgeries for children to be child abuse.
  74. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3585 what with a $7 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 12, 21, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 89,125 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,064 apiece.    Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #871 with a jackpot of $241 million up for grabs: 12, 18, 20, 29, 30, and Powerball 16.  Out of 92,051 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but no Powerball for a prize of $4,4772,553.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Temecula, CA 92592.
  75. 2021 Wednesday R: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– In his hometown of Akron, Ohio, heavyweight boxer Michael “Dynamite” Dokes dies at age 54, one day after his birthday.  Over the course of his pro career, he held numerous titles and amassed a record of 61 fights, 53 wins (33 KOs), 6 losses, and 2 draws.
  76. 2021 Wednesday S: The Wrap-Up– We learned today that the Biden regime is begging OPEC and associated nations to increase oil production so gasoline prices within the United States will drop.  Folks, didn’t this stumblebum bozo clamp down on virtually every fossil fuel production project that he could within the United States so he could usher in a brave new era of solar panels and wind energy?  Whether we produce our own oil supplies or import them, we are still burning the same amount of oil.  If we produce it, we are energy independent and if we import it and rely on those sources, we sure as hell are not.  Friends, this is frigging insane and the sooner the courts begin hearing the election fraud cases on merit, the sooner we might decapitate this faux regime.  We are Americans, we are free people, and we are not going to put up with this bullshit.  NOT threatening any violence upon anyone, just saying.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  77. 2022 Thursday: The next three months are going to be a dangerous time for the American people as the closer Election Day draws near, the more desperate the Biden regime and its Joestapo thugs will become.  They thought sending the Joestapo down to Mar-a-Lago was going to be the magic bullet, yet, the bullet had the opposite effect, people are growing angrier by the minute.  As a former Democrat, I KNOW Democrats, many Democrats in fact, and they are telling me that this ‘ain’t good, Fritz, it ain’t good.’  People are wary of what is happening to our country and whether one likes Donald Trump, or they do not, most can agree on one thing: thanks to him, we are now 100-percent aware as to the existence of the Deep State and most everyone will do everything possible to DESTROY IT.  We elect our leaders, and the bureaucrats are obligated to follow their directions.  If they don’t like it, they can frigging quit.  It is not up to scum such as James Clapper, that fat pig, John Brennan, that deviant POS James Comey, and the rest of the inbred political hacks scattered throughout government to topple elected leaders.  If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise.  The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out.  Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.  It has NEVER been clearer than it is now.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

  54. 2020 Sunday B: People still await the VP pick of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  We hope to hear it soon but speculation abounds about two things: is it possible that whomever the former VP chooses to be his number two will be such a bottom-level loser such as Stacey Abrams or Gretchen Whitmer because no one of substance wishes to be on a doomed ticket or could what Chef Cheryl will write about in tomorrow’s blog post- Monday, August 10, 2020- could we see a NEW Obama-Biden ticket, one in which, Michelle Obama will be at the top and Dr. Jill Biden at the bottom?  Think about it.  Be sure to read tomorrow’s blog post.
  55. 2020 Sunday C: In Chicago, after false reports of the Chicago PD executing a young black man in the streets, mobs rush out and begin attacking upscale stores and neighborhoods along the ‘Magnificent Mile,’ beating, burning, rioting, and looting like a bunch of lunatics.  The following day, Mayor Lori Lightfoot would berate her citizens but what does it matter?  Nothing changes.  Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., a mass shooting occurs between black citizens leaving one dead and another twenty injured in varying degrees.  Mainstream media remained mum on both incidents, but Tucker Carlson at Fox News had the balls to both report it the following day and show video of the incidents.  Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon, rioting lunatics assault an elderly woman simply because she forgot to wear her mask in public.  Time to start whacking and stacking, folks.  Gun sales continue going UP!
  56. 2020 Sunday D: Speaking of guns, a tragedy occurs in Wilson, North Carolina, as a man named Darius Sessoms, 25-years-old, walked across their street and shot his five-year-old neighbor, Cannon Hinnant, in the head as he rode his bicycle in front of his home.  The child was white while the shooter was black.  Sadly, the news media has done its best to let this story go unreported.  Go figure.  Police are investigating but said the ‘shooting was not random.’  
  57. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 204,098,545 confirmed cases, +654,388, 4,315,487 confirmed deaths, +8,100 and 183,276,380 confirmed recoveries, +534,294.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,780,461 confirmed cases, UP 237,123 from yesterday’s reporting, 633,798 confirmed deaths, UP 337, [iii] and 29,922,841 confirmed recoveries, UP 63,779.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [iv]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 315,011 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 89,067 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[x]

[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.792.  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- Bosnia and Herzegovina: $5.078 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,618,816,777,129 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiii]  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 Chi-Coms, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom with $440 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  63. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As you know, the AICPENDBLOG.COM tracks the movements of our ‘Johnny on the spot’ ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  By our count, today is her 139th day overseeing the U.S.-Mexico border and her 45th day since he sole visit to quietest part of the border, the El Paso Sector.  When will she begin doing the job to which senile Joe Biden appointed her to do? [xiv]   Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $507,711,936.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $241,603,657,728.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,476,244.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,476,244. [xv]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  The Western Roman Empire imploded because of its (1) inability to control its borders (2) endless wars (3) constant political strife and intrigue and (4) normalizing aberrant behavior such as homosexuality, pedophilia, and other forms of immoral perversion.  The collapse of the Western Roman Empire led to 1,000 years of Darkness, the Dark Ages.  We must save our country and the Western World by stopping the barbarians).
  64. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As things along the southern border continue getting out of hand along the border and across the country, the Biden regime is taking increased heat as to its lack of transparency as to where they are dumping the more than two million illegal aliens around the country.  Sadly, critics such as Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, are facing pushback from progressives that want NO separation with their crazy border policies and legitimate concern over the border invasion.
  65. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett calls on Lebanon to take ‘responsibility’ for the rocket fire coming out of the southern part of their country and into Israel.  We know Hezbollah is the one firing the missiles which is why the civilized world must exterminate the Untermensch.  In other news, eight hundred mixed Israeli and Palestinian families are calling for unification following the lapse of a law.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is preparing to slap Belarus with a new round of sanctions.   Finally, Israel’s diaspora President Nachman Shai says that ‘IF we lose the United States, things are going to get bad for the Jewish people.’  
  66. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Centers for Disease Control are urging Americans NOT to travel to Israel, France, or Thailand due to increasing COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, Australian troops are going door to door Downunder to make sure that EVERYONE is home and is not out violating the stay-at-home orders.  WTF?  Concerned citizens are warning the same BS could soon come to American shores. 
  67. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the Biden regime continues the drumbeat that ‘everyone must be vaccinated, everyone must be vaccinated (or face ostracization from society’), the Centers for Disease Control claims there’s ‘limited evidence that people recovered from the Xi Jinping Bat Flu require vaccinations or that antibodies protect them from ALL variants.’  Speaking of Xi Jinping, noted author Gordon Chang says that ‘Xi’s actions show the deliberate spread of COVID-19 across the world.’  Elsewhere, the dean of the Brown University of Public Health- Dr. Ashish Jha- says that ‘people must try to understand vaccine-hesitant Americans rather than vilifying them.’  Dr. Scott Gottlieb says ‘leave COVID-19 response up to local communities rather than issuing blanket rulings.’  Finally, Christian Whiton says that ‘IF the lab leak theory is proven true, the Chi-Coms owe the world $35 trillion in damages and lost lives.’  Amen.
  68. 2021 Monday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Democrats want a ‘permanent pandemic’ because they loathe giving up power and want to make people more dependent upon the federal government.   Next, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten is demanding vaccine mandates for ALL schools or else, she will not authorize the reopening of schools.  U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says the ‘nation stands at a fork in the road when it comes to vaccine and mask mandates and the reopening of schools.’  Meanwhile, the Pentagon is ordering that ALL active-duty personnel hold out his or her arms for a jab by September 15 or else.  (Note- could be loads of courts martial). 
  69. 2021 Monday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Former President Barack Hussein Obama continues taking heat for his sixtieth birthday party over the weekend due to NO precautions against COVID-19 (because leaked film shows it as such) while Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is blasting ONLY the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota while giving both Obama and the Lollapalooza Music Festival big passes.  Speaking of Obama’s birthday party, critics were slamming a New York Times reporter for seemingly giving the Obamas a pass because they are ‘sophisticated vaccinated people’ while the little people are nothing more than ignorant mopes.  Regarding the vaccines, pollster Frank Luntz says the ‘divide over vaccines is now a massive political chasm.’
  70. 2021 Monday M: Miscellaneous News I– Small towns across the United States are offering remote workers up to $20,000 to relocate to their towns.
  71. 2021 Monday N: Economic News– Job openings during July hit a record 10.1 million.  Sadly, way too many people are sitting at home, squirting out bastard children, smoking the crack pipe, breaking into their neighbors’ homes, or joining mobs when they should be either on the job or seeking one. 
  72. 2021 Monday O: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Freshly back from parental leave, Chicago Police Department Officer Ella French lost her life during a routine traffic stop after a punk she pulled over shot her in the face.  Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot blamed everyone and everything else instead of her failed policies for this tragic loss of life.  Calls continue growing for this pathetic POS governor, a person who could never find a man even if her life depended upon it to resign and to do so now.  Law enforcement turned their backs on this corrupt mayor.  Speaking of Chicago, in a 10-hour span over the weekend, criminals shot seventy-three people killing eleven of them.  William Kelly told Newsmax that ‘Frog-Face’s’ comments on the shooting of Officer French were despicable.  Officer French was the first Windy City officer killed since 1987.  Finally, Cleveland, Ohio, activists are pressing for the formation of the toughest police department oversight committee in the entire nation.  NOT good.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Human-Caused Disaster News– Report: apparently, the condominium that collapsed in Surfside, Florida was not built to code.  However, the age of the building, who were the original builders, the Trafficante Mob?  Good luck with getting restitution out of them.
  74. 2021 Monday Q: Natural Disasters News– The Dixie Fire is the largest wildfire in California history what with the destruction of more than 463,000 acres, the leveling of the historic mining town of Greenville, and at least eight people missing, five of them from Greenville.  This crap occurs every summer and fall in California and it is because Democrat control has done nothing about maintaining the forests, building new water infrastructure (in fact, they are tearing down dams), or working with PG&E to help them put transmission lines underground instead of forcing them to go ‘GREEN’ within the next few years.  Shame on them.
  75. 2021 Monday R: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Government has bestowed upon a Harvard professor $1.8 million to study UFOs.  Sounds like the money-go-round to us, folks.
  76. 2021 Monday S: Fake News I– We learned today that CNN’s Chris “Fraido” Cuomo has been barred by management from discussing the problems of his perverted brother, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov,” after already advising big brother on how to combat the calls for his resignation from office.
  77. 2021 Monday T: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is calling on the Biden regime to restart construction on the southern border wall.  We seriously doubt that enfeebled old Joe Biden will pay any heed to this sage advice.  Meanwhile, as the Dems continue the back-slapping glee over forcing through the ‘infrastructure bill’ to the floor for a full vote, President Trump slams the Trojan horse of a bill as being the beginning of the “Green New Deal,” a fascist takeover of the country by the Democrats hidden by the disguise of impending doom via Climate Change, Global Warming, and Extreme Weather.  Amen, Mr. President, amen.  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says of the Dems’ $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill that it is a ‘gateway to socialism.’
  78. 2021 Monday U: New York State News– Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat from upstate New York, is preparing to become governor if current office-holder Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov resigns over his growing scandals or either through impeachment or via arrest for the crimes of which he has been accused removes the cretin from office,   Here are the names of the eleven women accusing him of wrongdoing: (1) Lindsey Boylan (2) Charlotte Bennett (3) Ana Liss (4) Alyssa McGrath (5) Anna Ruch (6) Karen Hinton (7) Virginia Limmiatis (8) Jessica Bakeman (9) Sherry Vill (10) Valerie Bauman and (11) Brittany Commisso[xvi].  (Note- one thing that jumps out at us at the AICPENDBLOG.COM is that Governor “Killer” Cuomo must be a racist because all these women are WHITE.  Wow.  Regarding Cuomo, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘it’s over for Cuomo as he’s NO Bill Clinton.’
  79. 2021 Monday V: Texas State News– Crybaby sniveling fugitive Democrats from the Lone Star State are suing Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, for having ‘forced them to flee the state so they could not do their jobs.’  Talk about deflection.  Still, a Texas judge blocked the dragnet Austin planned to launch against these recalcitrant, wayward scumbags who fled more than a month ago via private jets with plenty of light beer with which to numb their fears to hide out in Washington, D.C.  One of them- a Madea-look-alike- had the nerve to sign “We shall overcome” upon first arriving in the District of Columbia.  The judge said that going after these brave Democrats would violate their civil rights. [xvii]
  80. 2021 Monday W: The Wrap-Up– Let me leave you with a closing thought or two…IF we do not fight back with everything in our wheelhouse against the crap the Democrats are trying to force down our throats, we will lose our God-given freedoms for a long, long time.  Most countries are able to break free eventually but if we are to use the rat-eating Chi-Coms, the Cubans, and the North Koreans as an example, if there is one thing these criminal regimes have learned is that the worse the oppression, the more difficult it is to break free.  Look at the Chi-Coms and the North Koreans’ concentration camps, horrible places where entire generations live out their lives.  Look, it is US, or it is THEM and as long as freedom flows through our veins, we must resist the Democrats with every ounce of fiber God has instilled in us.  We are strong, there are more of us than there are of them and if the RINO Republicans would stop act like kapos working for the Nazis, we might be able to stymie the scum.  We also must join forces to help our beleaguered border guards.  Otherwise, we could soon see Chi-Com troops patrolling our streets at the request of the Democratic-Socialists.  Thanks for joining us today, we will meet up again tomorrow.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  81. 2022 Tuesday: Friends, I knew I did something right when I switched parties several years ago (did so on November 08, 2018)- we were still writing at Google Blogger- because after what we saw yesterday at Mar-a-Lago in conservative Florida, there is NO way in hell I could remain a Democrat, even if my lovely wife swore to cut me off if I left.  Look, what more excuse does one need to add new firearms to the DARK gun cabinet than seeing the Joestapo raid Mar-a-Lago?  Why would I not want to scoop up some new shotguns and handguns after learning the IRS is going to add another 87,000 agents to their employment rolls?  I had other things I wanted to say today but friends, the raid on Mar-a-Lago demonstrates that our country is embarking down a new and desolate path into authoritarianism.  I hope to God we reclaim our country over the course of the subsequent two election cycles as if we don’t, well, it’s going to be time to move down to the D.R. and enjoy retirement.  Let us know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht- America’s favorite German chef.

219. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 07, 2022

IF you want to end monkeypox in the United States, close the bathhouses, the gay bars, park restrooms, and encourage the homo men to return to practicing safe sex, if not chastity. Without the so-called ‘gay gene’ being discovered- and believe you me, they are searching high and low for it- homosexuality is 99.99999-percent choice, not a matter of birth. Will people be mad at us? Sure, but we don’t give a flying hoot because it is important to always speak the truth.

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

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Elena Kagan; U.S. Attorney General John Breckinridge; U.S. Transportation Secretaries Norman Mineta and Maria Cino; Fleetwood Mac featuring Christine McVie, Iron Maiden featuring Bruce Dickenson, the J.

  8. 1802 Saturday: Napoleon Bonaparte orders the reinstitution of slavery on the island of Haiti (then St. Dominique).  The Haitians managed to throw off their French masters, but Napoleon said, ‘NO, it’s back to slavery for you.’  This war would become the ‘Vietnam War’ of its time, NO French soldier wanted to go into this hellhole where nothing was too bad to inflict on one’s enemies.
  9. 1805 Wednesday: The 5th U.S. Attorney General John Breckinridge assumed his position on the nation’s high court on this date. A Democratic-Republican, he served under President Thomas Jefferson from today until December 14, 1806.

The reason for these out-of-control wildfires in the Golden State is poor forest management by state authorities. They would rather kiss the rear-ends of environmentalist groups than to do what is right by the people of the state- the U.S. citizens, which is. Meanwhile, the ‘democratic’ People’s Republic of China bans the Disney movie, “Christopher Robin” (from Winnie the Pooh fame) because the character had the audacity to mock the communist thug running the country, Xi Jinping.

  57. 2020 Friday: Prior to President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Ohio the previous day, Republican Governor Mike DeWine claimed to have had a positive test for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. Today, his office declared it to be a false alert, that he did NOT have the Wuhan Virus. Well, we know that Governor DeWine is a RINO and that he does not want to appear with President Trump so there you go. What a shame. Meanwhile, employment statistics for the month of July show a net gain of 1.763 million new jobs filled, that unemployment in the country had dropped to 10.2 percent and that of all the jobs gained, one-third of them were in the leisure and hospitality industry. Unemployment for all categories is down but especially for black and Hispanic Americans. No matter what the Democrats do, they cannot cripple the economy. Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo says that schools in the Empire State will reopen in the fall for all students. Finally, “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues trying to clarify his statements from earlier in the week that he is ‘not a racist’ and that he ‘loves black folks.’  Uh, okay, Joe, okay. We KNOW you are a racist and that since your earliest days in the U.S. Senate, you have backed every segregationist move that came your way. Enough is enough, already!
  58. 2020 Friday A: Various teachers’ unions around the country continue sniveling and whining about ‘how dangerous it is for them to return to the classrooms in the fall due to Wuhan Virus Crisis concerns,’ to which, we say, “IF you can’t do it, then step the hell aside and allow others to do the job” as well as urge President Trump to find ways by which to terminate all teachers who will not return to the classrooms.  We must find ways by which, we can crush public sector employees’ unions because this is bulls**t. Besides, teachers’ unions want to defund cops, make the Green New Deal real, and all manner of left-wing socialist crap. However, one way by which, we can make sure the kids and teachers can socially distant is to DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR KIDS and you will find classrooms 50-percent vacant. DO THIS NOW! Never let a good crisis like the Chinese Virus go to waste, DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS BUT ESPECIALLY THEIR KIDS! Once done, the test scores of American children will skyrocket as they will not have to restrict their pace to that of the ignorant illegals.  Meanwhile, news hits that the Democratic Party does NOT want the “Baby Evita,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka AOC, to speak at their upcoming convention. Who can blame them? The girl is bat crap stupid! Elsewhere, the Democrats in Congress continue demanding a $3 trillion COVID-19 relief bill atop the previous trillion dollars spent on this Chi-Com lab-engineered pandemic. If anyone should be $3 trillion, it should be the Democratic Party’s masters in Beijing!
  59. 2020 Friday B: The president of Lebanon- Michel Aoun- announces that one of two things sparked the ginormous explosion that toppled much of the port section of Beirut on Tuesday: human error or human intent. He asked the president of France for help in determining if a missile or an aircraft in the vicinity might somehow have caused the godawful explosion that has killed close to two hundred people, injured 4,000 or more, as well as caused the disappearances of numerous others. The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes it was an Iranian weapons cache that a moron dropped a cigarette butt into, or the Israeli Mossad took action to stop a Hezbollah (we put nothing past POS murderer Hassan Nasrallah) or Hamas’s plot against them.

Shame on these flipping Democrats.

  63. 2020 Friday F: Joe Biden’s overall national poll has dropped to a lead of 6.8 percent over President Donald J. Trump. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump announces he will extend unemployment benefits to the end of the year. He says he will forgo school loan repayments for the time being and that evictions will be put on hold until sometime in the fall. He also announces aid for Lebanon in the aftermath of what appears more likely to have been a terrorist attack in that beautiful nation. President Trump also says- yet again- that the Dept. of Homeland Security is ready, willing, and able to go into Portland, Oregon, and end the seventy-six straight days of rioting that has been trashing that once beautiful city. It is clear that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is in league with the Marxist scum. We say, “Send in former Blackwater Special Ops and WHACK ‘em!”

  69. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.390 per gallon, $3.024 in Florida, $4.091 in Hawaii, and $3.872 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Missouri: $2.870.  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- Grenada: $5.041 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,614,904,269,572 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xv]  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 Japan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is communist China with $1,072 trillion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  70. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 137 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to oversee the fiasco along the southern border with Mexico and Day No. 43 since her one and only visit to the catastrophe going on down there.  As the border continues imploding, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says the White House’s border policies only lead to increased violence and an avalanche of drugs from communist China (which in our view is an act of war against the American people).  Moving on, here are the figures for the illegal alien invasion as compiled by One America News.  Ready?  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens: $554,515,584.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $ 239,458,680,832.  Next, (3) here is the number of illegal aliens who have swarmed across the border this year: 2,454,259.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens living within the United States: 36,454,260.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- since the inception of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day back in July 2009, we predicted then that the numbers were approximately 35-50 million whereas now, we contend they are closer to 75-100 million which is not good.  The seeds of our own destruction already exist among us.
  71. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As Joe Biden continues stumbling around like a deranged lunatic suffering from the DTs, Texas Judge Richard Cortez is calling out the head of the regime for ignoring his invitation to visit the southern border and to witness the disaster Dictator Biden has caused.  Meanwhile, we learn (and we do not believe this for a minute) but a new report says that the Biden regime is flying illegal alien families down into Mexico.  We do not believe this for a moment.
  72. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is raising concerns over the aggressive behavior of the Chi-Coms and warns that the Chinese Communist Party- the CCP- is rapidly building a nuclear arsenal.  Elsewhere, Lebanese authorities arrest four Hezbollah thugs after they launched sixteen rockets into northern Israel.  The Iron Dome shot down ten of the missiles while the other six exploded harmlessly.  Neither side reported any casualties.
  73. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The White House is going to require ALL visitors to have either a Chi-Vi vaccine passport or proof of a negative China Virus test.  Meanwhile, radio talk show host and pundit Dr. Michael Savage has raised the question as to whether the world can force the Chi-Coms to pay reparations to the world for letting loose the Chi-Vi on an unsuspecting globe.  Next, reports are suggesting that the U.S. is experiencing 100,000 new cases of the Wuhan Virus every day which simply is not true no matter how much Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci or the Biden regime wants it to be.
  74. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-OH 7th CD, is asking the House Republican leadership to begin impeachment hearings on slobbering Joe Biden.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is blasting the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill’ and warns that it is going to lead to a horrible uptick in inflation for the American people.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that the GOP ‘should use the debt ceiling to force a better infrastructure bill.’  Amen.  Elsewhere, Rep. Conor Lamb, DS-PA 17th CD, is going to launch a U.S. Senate bid to capture the seat of outgoing Senator Pat Toomey, Republican.
  75. 2021 Saturday K: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is blasting Wisconsin for not cleaning up its voter rolls sooner.  Next, politicians are joining pediatricians in slamming the American Medical Association’s absolutely STUPID idea of NOT including gender markers on birth certificates.  Enough with WOKE!  In other political news, Rep. Don Bacon, R-NE 2nd CD is blasting decrepit Joe Biden over not moving quickly enough to get Afghan allies out of Afghanistan before the Taliban overrun the entire country.
  76. 2021 Saturday L: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– The sheriff of Albany County, New York, says that ‘if the accusations against Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov are true, he could arrest the crumbling governor for sexual harassment and assault.  Rep. Andrew Garbarino, R-NY 2nd CD predicts that ‘Cuomo will resign before Albany impeaches the POS.’  Meanwhile, noted legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax the ‘bigoted attacks’ on Governor “Killer” Cuomo are ‘all political.’  In other Cuomo news, a new report says that an aide to Governor Cuomo signed off on the Empire State’s chief executive having completed sexual harassment training.
  77. 2021 Saturday M: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3584 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 02, 09, 12, 20, 39, and Mega 05.  Out of 103,399 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE NUMBERS plus the Mega for a prize of $14,000,000.  The lucky winner bought the winning ticket at Valero in Highland, CA 92346.  Then, there were three people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $11,607 apiece.  Those tickets were sold at (1) 7-Eleven in Roseville, CA 95678; (2) Chevron in Bakersfield, CA 93313; and ARCO AM/PM in Calexico, CA 92231.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #870 with a jackpot of $226 million up for grabs: 07, 24, 36, 54, 60, and Power 23.  Out of 89,466 winning tickets, the highest winners were sixty-nine people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $367 apiece.
  78. 2022 Sunday: Folks, we are recording the latest Chi-Vi and monkeypox cases for presentation in 2023 but let us say this about the monkeypox: the fact that it is mostly an STD among gay men lessens our concern for the ‘victims.’  IF you want to end monkeypox in the United States, close the bathhouses, the gay bars, park restrooms, and encourage the homo men to return to practicing safe sex, if not chastity.  Without the so-called ‘gay gene’ being discovered- and believe you me, they are searching high and low for it- homosexuality is 99.99999-percent choice, not a matter of birth.  Will people be mad at us?  Sure, but we don’t give a flying hoot because it is important to always speak the truth.  A century from now- if our country still survives- generations then will look back on now as being a time of rampant lunacy, one that afflicted many otherwise sane people.  Look at transgenderism: that’s bullshit.  The fact that young people are being physically disfigured for life tells us at some point those mentally ill people are going to come back to their enablers and begin murdering them for having destroyed their lives via giving in to the ‘fad of the day.’  Let us return to common sense instead of nursing at the nasty teats of liberalism and reclaim our nation.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.

  42. 2002 Monday: The United States closed its consulate in Karachi, Pakistan.  The American government did this after Pakistani authorities removed large concrete blocks from in front of the building and allowed the resumption of normal traffic on the road directly in front of the facility.  In doing this, the Pakistanis attempted to make a point that in case of terrorist attack, the U.S. was on its own.  Screw these bastards.  Elsewhere, the coral-encrusted gun turret of the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor was raised from the floor of the Atlantic, nearly 140 years after the historic warship sank during a tremendous storm.
  43. 2008 Tuesday: The state of Texas executed Jose Medellin, a Mexican-born condemned killer, via lethal injection for his part in the gang rape and murder of two teenage girls, Elizabeth Pena, and Jennifer Ertman, in 1993.  Liberals claim that illegal aliens do not commit crime, yet this POS murdered two American girls after participating in a heinous gang rape with some of his banger buddies.  #Buildthewallanddeportthemall!

  46. 2013 Monday: Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos purchases “The Washington Post,” a privately-owned newspaper, which the ultra-leftist liberal socialist transforms into his personal mouthpiece for attacking his enemies.  In our view, NO billionaire entrepreneur should ever be able to purchase a media outlet to then use as his personal attack dog on his enemies.   Meanwhile, Samantha Power becomes the 28th U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
  47. 2014 Tuesday:  Over 1.2 billion security credentials have been stolen in a Russian-led hacking ring; data was stolen from over 420,000 websites, but the websites and victim names have not yet been disclosed.  Meanwhile, Russia counters sanctions by the U.S. and the European Union by banning all imports of dairy, fish, meat, fruit, and vegetables; Russia prohibited Ukrainian flights from its air space, as well.   Finally, in a move that shocked many, President Barack Hussein Obama signed the Iron Dome Bill providing $225 million so the Israelis could build their iron dome to deflect missiles coming from all directions.

  50. 2017 Saturday: The U.N. Security Council votes to impose additional sanctions on Kim Jong Un and North Korea for the communist thug continuing to fire off missiles and for making threats.  We need to nuke HIM.
  51. 2018 Sunday: On the island of Lombok in Indonesia, a 6.9-magnitude earthquake slams the region killing at least 460 and displacing another 350,000 people.  
  52. 2019 Monday: New Delhi, India, announces that due to security concerns with neighboring Pakistan, it’s going to revoke Article 370 that will strip Indian-controlled Kashmir’s status as a state and making it a union territory.  The Islamists in Pakistan have been trying to subvert Kashmir for many years with the Indians having to kick their butts from time-to-time in order to maintain law and order.  Meanwhile, due to increasing anti-government and anti-Beijing protests in Hong Kong, the local government does what it can to clamp down on the protests and cancels at least 200 flights in and out of the former British territory.   Elsewhere, Toni Morrison, first African American woman to win a Nobel Prize (2010) dies at age 88.  Finally, the European Union’s Copernicus Program- an Earth-observation satellite confirms (drum roll please!) that July 2019 was the hottest month on record.  Hmmm…
  53. 2020 Wednesday: Lebanese authorities inform the world that the BLAST that devastated their main port in Beirut occurred because of tons of ammonium nitrate stored on site for more than six years.  Ammonium nitrate is, of course, one of the main components of explosives so for now, it appears NOT to have been a ‘terrorist event’ although we sure as hell believe that it was.  At least 150 people died, more than 3,500 injured, scores of others are missing, and the nation is in turmoil.  The government put several of the port authorities for now under house arrest.  Folks, it was a terrorist mishap or a Mossad strike before Iranians could launch massive terrorist attacks against Israel.  This is what the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, Democratic presidential nominee asks a black reporter when quizzed about doing ‘mental tests’ if he was tested for cocaine prior to going on the Yahoo news program.  Uh, okay, Joe, why you have to racialize everything?

  57. 2020 Wednesday D: New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio orders the establishment of “Checkpoint Charlies” at all major entryways into the crumbling city.  He wants armies of contact tracers and public health employees to ensure that all visitors remain under quarantine for two weeks lest they pay massive fines and spend time in the emptied jails.  Meanwhile, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo says he will buy drinks for all the wealthy people who have fled both the city and the state ‘if they’d just come back.’  NO one is going to return, governor, no one.  You reap what you sow, you worthless POS!
  58. 2021 Thursday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 201,638,934 confirmed cases, +698,877, 4,279,345 confirmed deaths, +10,269 and 181,417,142 confirmed recoveries, +465,517.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,298,087 confirmed cases, UP 117,288 from yesterday’s reporting, 631,860 confirmed deaths, UP 604, [vi] and 29,814,788 confirmed recoveries, UP 27,472.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 313,418 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 90,660 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Michigan: $3.308.  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- Bulgaria: $4.951 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,606,945,078,215 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is All Others with $215 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here’s the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ daily ticker: Border czar for 135 days and 41 days since her one and only visit to the southern border.  Next, One America News shared the latest figures on the illegal alien tidal wave overwhelming the country today.  Here we go: (1) Cost this day alone: $525,088,928.  Next, (2) here is the cost for caring for all these illegal aliens this year: $237,236,409,184.  Next, (3) Here is the estimate of the numbers of illegals who have poured across the U.S.-Mexico border just this year: 2,431,494.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens roaming the U.S.: 36,431,492.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day predicted as far back as 2009 when our original blogsite got underway that the numbers back then were between 35-50 million illegal aliens.  Now, we believe that number to be closer to 75-100 million.  A person cannot walk into a hardware store, go into a liquor store, dine at an outdoor restaurant without illegals running up and begging for food.  This must stop and it’s going to stop extremely soon…
  65. 2021 Thursday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– a new day, new crap: Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is at it again- he says, ‘the U.S. is likely to face new COVID-19 variants (now, we’re talking about the Lambda variant, they mentioned it last Monday and then dropped it like a hot potato as it was too soon) unless community spread doesn’t come under control.’  Meanwhile, there is increased talk about Chi-Vi vaccine passports for increased workers and for one to go about normal life.  Some say it’s the “U.S. version of the Chi-Coms’ social media scores.”  Speaking of which, the U.S. Department of Defense says it’s going to mandate Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines for ALL active-duty personnel.  No flipping wonder that we have forty new ‘COVID-19 billionaires.’  Moderna (or maybe Pfizer) is recommending a THIRD SHOT to the two-shot regimen meaning we will have another 40 new COVID-19 billionaires by the end of the year bringing the number to between 80-100.  Question: how many members of Congress will become ‘COVID-19 billionaires?  Just saying).
  66. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Florida has now seen a major spike in pediatric COVID-19 cases just as school is going to start.  How convenient.  We believe it’s because all of the illegal aliens that are being redistributed across the United States but especially into RED locations.   Having mentioned the Lambda variant of COVID-19 in the previous posting, it would appear that the reason for its ‘return’ is that the Bidenistas have gotten as much mileage out of the Delta variant as they possibly can.  In other Chi-Com virus news, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX, 10th CD, told Newsmax that ‘COVID-19 was a sinister genetic manipulation by the communist Chinese.’  Elsewhere, CNN reports that ‘U.S. intel possesses genetic data with which to study the origins of the Wuhan Bat Flu.’  Excellent.
  67. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden- thinking he’s really hanging in with the in-crowd (like he did when he played that Latin music soundbite before a crowd of Latinos) trolled “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, in their ongoing war of words over COVID-19 said, “Governor Who?”  Look, Joe, you need to be careful because all Governor DeSantis had to do was to say that ‘at least, I won MY election unlike YOU whole stole yours.’  Of course, Joe being the feeble old fool that he is does not think past step one.   
  68. 2021 Thursday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has approved a $750 million arms sale to Taiwan.  (Note: one year later, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi would just be concluding an overseas ‘visit’ to Taiwan that has the Chi-Coms all stirred up and preparing to go to war.  What the hell?)  
  69. 2021 Thursday K: Political News I– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th CD, is going to visit the Iowa State Fair.  Meanwhile, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is pushing his “Love America Act” that will toss ‘Criminal (Critical) Race Theory’ onto the scrap heap of history by teaching America’s true history, its founding documents, and love for country instead of his left-wing crap the liberals are pushing.   Next, a new GOP-led House bill looks to restore America’s national forests and end overregulation of forest seeks management. 
  70. 2021 Thursday L: Political News II– To much Democrat horror, the state of Wisconsin has canceled 250,000 inactive or fraudulent voter registrations because election officials cannot find them- and Democrats are opposed to this.   Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, heard testimonies today on malicious Chi-Com influence across the United States.  Time to drive the Chi-Coms out of the country and back into their rat holes.   Next, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, told Newsmax that massive government spending is ‘bait and switch’ leading to higher inflation. 
  71. 2021 Thursday M: Political News III– Today, we learned that ‘Mr. Save-the-Planet,’ aka the ‘Climate Czar’ John F. Kerry and his family have embarked on sixteen private jet forays.  What about saving the planet, Mr. Climate Czar?  Oh, that’s right, you aren’t one of the ‘little people.’  Elsewhere, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says the recent spate of emails about the murder of Ashli Babbitt only raises more questions about WHY the concealed cop shot and killed her and WHO exactly he was.   Speaking of her death, as the FBI continues arresting more patriotic Americans for their participation in the January 6, 2021, protests, the ones the left have labeled as worse than Pearl Harbor, the War of 1812, and September 11, 2001, combined together, violent crime rates continue going up around the country.  WTF?
  72. 2021 Thursday N: Political News IV– As the Biden regime continues crushing everything in its path, ultrawealthy Americans are moving abroad and renouncing their U.S. citizenship.  Who can blame them?  We might be seeking asylum in Hungary soon.  Meanwhile, civil rights ‘leaders’ announce they are going to lead voting rights marches beginning on August 28.  Oh, whoopie.  Moving on, the Democrats are pushing for a vote on their ‘elections reform bill’ before they leave Washington, D.C., on August recess.   In other Democrat news, Act Blue the Democrat-funding site has dumped New York reprobate Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s funding page.  Sucks to be you, Andrew.  Finally, U.S. Senate candidate from Missouri, Mark McCloskey, says that Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, DS-MO 1st CD, wants to turn St. Louis into a ‘criminals’ paradise.’
  73. 2021 Thursday O: Miscellaneous News I– Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates said he made ‘a mistake’ hanging with Jeffrey Epstein.  Elsewhere, 80-year-old Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts won’t be joining them on their upcoming U.S. tour after having had to undergo a medical procedure. 
  74. 2021 Thursday P: Business News– Property Owners and real estate companies are joining forces to fight back against the oppressive, Chi-Com-style takeover of rental properties via the bogus ‘evictions moratorium’ imposed by of all things, the Centers for Disease Control.  Even the courts have declared this to be crap and yet the Democrats act as though the people have no choice in the matter.  We are frigging Americans; we will not bow down to tyrants.
  75. 2021 Thursday Q: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– AFL-CIO leader Richard Trumka died at age 72.  Had this overweight leftist thug come to agreement with the ‘jobs president,’ President Donald J. Trump, it’s possible America would see full employment and all illegal aliens would be deported back to whence they came.  He could not leave his Democrat cronies behind and thus he sold his country out.
  76. 2021 Thursday R: Sports News I– President Donald J. Trump rips the U.S. women’s soccer team by saying ‘if you’re woke, you lose.’  Carl Lewis, Olympic great, ripped the men’s relay team as an ‘embarrassment.’
  77. 2021 Thursday S: We continue learning more about how U.S. banks many of whom have deep ties to the Chi-Coms are buying up entire housing tracts, neighborhoods, and other commercial properties and are going to transform them into rentals because rents are going up by 5.3-percent and are expected to go higher.  We first warned about the Chi-Coms becoming Americans’ de facto landlords through buying up as much U.S. property as possible via straw purchasers, i.e., the BIG BANKS, so they can rule our country via controlling everything average Americans need.  This is WAR.  Plain and simple, the time is NOW to nuke them and put Donald J. Trump back into the White House.
  78. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, numerous politicians who went against President Trump found themselves on the chopping block.  As long as the Democrats could squeeze propaganda points out of them, they were A-Okay whereas once they no longer had any value, out the door they went.  Look at the sackless putz, Rep. Peter Meijer, RINO-MI 3rd CD, he stuck it to Trump, thought he was BIG SHIT, but then, the Dems dump loads of money atop his pro-Trump opponent John Gibbs, believing him to be easier to defeat than their hired hack.  Ah, well, we suspect Gibbs will trounce the Democrat as will loads of other pro-Trump Republicans.  The two RINOs in Washington would have gone down were it not for that state’s crazy election system.  (Note- many of us plan to register as Democrats so as to inflate their numbers and then vote against them- from the inside.  Going to be great).

216. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 04, 2022

2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden. A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.

  52. 2007 Saturday: NASA launched its Phoenix spacecraft today and its mission was a space exploration of the planet Mars.  The Phoenix lander descended on Mars on May 25, 2008.
  53. 2008 Monday: Robert Novak- famed American journalist with a 45-year career- announces his retirement after the discovery of a brain tumor.  According to CBS News, he also played in a part in the CIA leak scandal that seems to be enveloping a variety of people.
  54. 2009 Tuesday: North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il pardoned two American journalists whom the North Koreans had arrested earlier in the year for illegally crossing into their wonderful country.  He did this because former President Bill Clinton arrived on scene on behalf of the Obama administration to secure their release from their hellish captivity.
  55. 2010 Wednesday: Officials estimate that 28,000 people have died from Mexican drug violence since December 2006.  One might question as to WHY the United Nations has not requested troops from across the world to go into that godforsaken country and eliminate the narcoterrorists? 
  56. 2011 Thursday: With the United States falling deeper and deeper into debt, the Dow Jones Industrial Average falls by 4-percent as do other stock markets- to varying degrees- around the world.   Meanwhile, a federal judge rules that former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld can be sued by a U.S. veteran who claims that while he was serving in Iraq, he was imprisoned and tortured by his own people.
  57. 2012 Saturday: Great Britain has their greatest success in one day at the Olympics since 1908, winning six gold medals and a silver on Day 8 of the 2012 Summer Olympics.   Meanwhile, Pyongyang announces that the floods that have devastated parts of the country have claimed the lives of 169 of its citizens while another 400 are missing and presumed dead.
  58. 2013 Sunday: Britain, France, and Germany close their embassies in Yemen; Canada closes its embassy in Bangladesh; and the U.S. closes 28 embassies in the Middle East and North America due to intelligence of impending al-Qaida attacks.  Time to track this human garbage down and begin eliminating them in droves.
  59. 2014 Monday: Medical worker Nancy Writebol, the second of two Americans to contract the Ebola virus in Liberia, joins Dr. Kent Brantley at Emory University Hospital for treatment; both patients are receiving an experimental drug that scientists have not tested yet on humans.  Elsewhere, Israel and Hamas enter into a 72-hour ceasefire, one brokered by Egypt.  Of course the Hamas trash will violate it.
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Following the questionable death of Zimbabwe’s beloved Cecil the Lion, Delta Airlines announces it will NO longer transport animal trophies, something they once did if hunters attained the trophies legally.  Elsewhere, United Arab Emirates troops with tanks and artillery arrive in the Yemeni port city of Aden to take up the fight with their Saudi allies against the Iranian-backed Houthi scumbags. 
  61. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia.  What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  62. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them.  Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?  Elsewhere, in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, former boy wonder pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli- a loser who jacked up the price of a generic drug to the point no one could afford it- undergoes conviction on three counts of securities fraud.
  63. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review.  The event was captured on live TV.  Even better, the former bus-driving thug Maduro blames the assassination attempt on Venezuelan exiles hiding in neighboring Colombia and on their handlers as well as the Venezuelan ‘mafia’ supposedly living in Florida.  Dude, STFU.
  64. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks.  Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.  Scumbags.  Elsewhere, Connor Bettis- a POS with a gun- hits the bar district in Dayton, Ohio, and kills 9 people and wounds another 27 before law enforcement arrives on scene and shoots the punk dead.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500.  Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem, or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!).  Wow.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  67. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  68. 2020 Tuesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  69. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus.  We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations! 
  70. 2020 Tuesday E: One teacher’s union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity.  Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.
  71. 2021 Wednesday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 200,907,364 confirmed cases, +660,570, 4,268,702 confirmed deaths, +9,788 and 180,887,601 confirmed recoveries, +375,059.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,159,774 confirmed cases, UP 101,353 from yesterday’s reporting, 631,256 confirmed deaths, UP 759, [ix] and 29,783,667 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,537.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]  
  72. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 312,814 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 91,264 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  73. 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: 4,003,013 confirmed cases, 64,622 confirmed deaths, and 2,110,935 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,703,998 confirmed cases, 39,319 confirmed deaths, and 2,297,664 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 43,962 confirmed cases, 538 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 484,806 confirmed cases, 6,186 confirmed deaths, and 231,241 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Alabama: they have 592,417 confirmed cases, 11,542 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [xi]  
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 885,766 confirmed cases, 6,503 confirmed deaths, and 854,995 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Laos,[xii] 168th country on the list: 7,305 cases of the virus, 7 confirmed deaths and 3,804 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]     
  75. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,792.67, DOWN 323.73 points (-0.92%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,780.53, UP 19.24 points (+0.13%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,402.66, DOWN -20.49 points (-0.46%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.10 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.07%).  The price of GOLD is $1,814.50 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $25.41 per troy ounce, -0.05 (-0.20%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,018.10 per troy oz, -3.10 (-0.30%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.01%). [xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,646.53 per troy oz, +1.70 (+0.06%). [xv] The price of RHODIUM is $19,000.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.53%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $780,000.00 per CNY/T, -10,000.00 (-1.27%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,563.50 per USD/T, -24.65 (-0.95%). [xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.97. In Lao Kip, one greenback equals 9,550.00 and in Latvian Lats, a buck equal 0.604 and in Lebanese Pound, one dollar equals 1,505.50 of theirs. [xvii]        
  76. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.387 per gallon, $3.025 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.865 in Washington state. [xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $3.128.  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- Cayman Islands: $4.929 per U.S. Gallon. [xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,602,871,192,916 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xx]  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 Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  77. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here’s the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ daily ticker: Border czar for 134 days and 40 days since her one and only visit to the southern border.  Next, One America News shared the latest figures on the illegal alien tidal wave overwhelming the country today.  Here we go: (1) Cost this day alone: $533,587,136.  Next, (2) here is the cost for caring for all these illegal aliens this year: $236,150,079,488.  Next, (3) Here is the estimate of the numbers of illegals who have poured across the U.S.-Mexico border just this year: 2,420,349.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens roaming the U.S.: 36,420,348.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day predicted as far back as 2009 when our original blogsite got underway that the numbers back then were between 35-50 million illegal aliens.  Now, we believe that number to be closer to 75-100 million.  A person cannot walk into a hardware store, go into a liquor store, dine at an outdoor restaurant without illegals running up and begging for food.  This must stop and it’s going to stop extremely soon…
  78. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– A federal judge blocks Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order prohibiting the transport of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State by anyone other than federal authorities.  The Texas Republican governor, however, is fighting back against this blatant overreach of power.  Elsewhere, slobbering Joe Biden continues blaming Texas and Florida for increasing the numbers of Chi-Vi cases.  ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis, R-FL, fired back at the counterfeit president, slamming him for allowing in millions of illegal aliens many of whom are infected with COVID-19 by telling him to ‘do your job and leave us alone.’  Man, the applause was tremendous.  Meanwhile, we have more numbers for the illegal alien invasion for the month of July: the Border Patrol caught 203,865 illegals, at least 37,252 were able to evade capture, 78 died, another 7,867 were guilty of NO violation, which leaves an outstanding number of 1,079 illegals.  Again, this is all a conservative estimate as the so-called ‘got-away folks’ are far higher than the numbers shown here.
  79. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Pakistan announced today that it has completed approximately 90-percent of the border wall with Afghanistan.  They don’t want Afghan refugees pouring into their country any more than Europeans want more Muslims, or the United States want more human refuse from around the world.  Good for them.  Elsewhere, Hezbollah scumbags fired some rockets into northern Israel today which led to the Israelis conducting artillery barrages on known jihadist sites in Lebanon.
  80. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is predicting that within a few weeks, there will be ‘200,000 cases of the Chi-Vi daily in the United States.’  (Note- this is all you need to know that the border must be closed and that every single illegal alien is rounded up, imprisoned, and then deported ASAP).  Meanwhile, Dr. Ashish Jha told Newsmax today that the NIH director Dr. Francis Collins was right to walk back mask comments.  The good doctor was saying stupid stuff like parents should wear masks at home around their children.  Enough already.    
  81. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The World Health Organization is calling for a moratorium on COVID-19 booster shots.  Oh, really?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms continue their bitching and whining over the recent GOP COVID-19 origins report that placed the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for infecting the entire world with their Frankenstein-like lab-created Wuhan Bat Flu Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control yesterday bowed to Democratic-Socialist pressure and re-enacted a moratorium on evictions, something they lack the power to do.  Doubts continue to build as to the legality of such an order by an entity with no power in this area.  Look, folks, this is what the Democrats love- they love rules and regulations, none of them backed up by laws.  This is how they punish people, how they persecute people, and how they crush people.  This is bullshit and we would suggest that landlords pay NO attention to this order.
  82. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Democratic Party leadership in the House is urging their wavering members to run as “Biden Democrats” or risk losing the majority in 2022.  Meanwhile, Senator Kevin Cramer, R-ND, has introduced a bill (that will go nowhere) that says ‘if a state mandates COVID-19 vaccine passports, it also must mandate VOTER ID.’  That bill is going nowhere.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is correct when he blasts the House Democrats for their ongoing crusade to get a hold of his tax returns.  Good for you.
  83. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– A new poll says that more than half of California’s Hispanic population wants the recall against Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to succeed and like everyone else, the Latinos are members of all parties.  Meanwhile, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says that ‘our grandchildren will suffer repaying Joe Biden’s massive debt.’  Amen.  In other political news, ‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani says that ‘Cuomo may be guilty, but he does deserve due process.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, is suing MSNBC’s Rachel “Mudslinger” Maddow for libel.  We hope you win, congressman.
  84. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– In other political news, a new poll says that almost everyone is against partisan gerrymandering.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnel, RINO-KY, has outlined demands for future spending bills.  Mitch, you don’t have any power.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden plans to shift arms export sales based on human rights concerns.  Looks like Saudi Arabia is not going to get its weapons.
  85. 2021 Wednesday N: Economic News– Last month, everyone was celebrating how many NEW private sector jobs Joe Biden was going to create and then whoops-a-daisy, bad economic news.  Last month, the Biden regime created ONLY 330,000 jobs- many of them no more than hamburger-flipper or taco-stuffer jobs- rather than the highly predicted number of 653,000 new jobs.  Growth in U.S. services sector hits a record high in July.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro says “U.S. pensions took a big hit from the Chi-Coms’ crackdown on BIG TECH.”
  86. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3583 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 04, 14, 18, 36, 43, and Mega 14.  Out of 89,945 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $33,312.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Culver City, CA 90232.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #869 with a jackpot of $211 million up for grabs: 05, 21, 32, 36, 58, and Powerball 14.  Out of 85,166 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,844 apiece.
  87. 2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden.  A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.  Drooling Joe told his then-boss Barack Hussein Obama (and probably still boss) NOT to whack Osama but Obama ‘All Drama’ did.  Now, Joe wants us to think he’s a big, macho machine ordering death and destruction on every fourth string, D-team terrorist.  Folks, I don’t buy this crap nor will I.  When and if they confirm the DNA of the dead terrorist to be him or not, it means NOTHING.  NOTHING.  Big frigging deal.  Joe, you aren’t Donald J. Trump.  You’re a senile bum.  Resign now.
