107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell. We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions. We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Douamont.  Fighting is fierce and ongoing.   Elsewhere, heavy fighting between German colonial troops and their Askaris and a South African force erupts around the village of Kondona Irangi.  The Allies have had a hell of a time getting the Germans into a fixed fight and after the Kaiser’s troops inflict heavy losses on their opponents, they melt off into the terrain.
  20. 1917 Tuesday: A bill in Congress to establish Daylight Saving Time suffered a defeat; however, lawmakers managed to pass it a few months later.   Elsewhere, during World War I, British and Egyptian troops begin assaulting Ottoman Turk positions in and around Gaza.  The fight to liberate Palestine from the Turks is underway.

  27. 1944 Monday: The Red Army continues driving Axis troops out of the western Ukraine.  One offensive after another prevents the German, Hungarian, Rumanian, and other allied Axis troops from being able to catch their breath and make a stand.  This is not good for the Axis, but they will continue fighting until the bitter end.

  33. 1961 Monday: Some 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba with which to topple communist thug dictator, Fidel Castro- or so the plan went- on this date.  However, President John F. Kennedy’s plan went awry from the start as Castro’s forces crushed the incursion by the third day.  The CIA was going to provide the freedom fighters with air cover but then President Kennedy and his brother, U.S. Attorney General Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy got cold feet and left them to their demise.

  45. 2003 Thursday: U.S. forces get lucky in Iraq as they scoop up one of deposed dictator Saddam Hussein’s half-brothers, Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, the leader of Iraq’s intelligence-gathering agency, the Mukhabarat.  Off he goes to a black site. 
  46. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  65. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Happy Easter to my Christian friends, colleagues, and neighbors.  For my Jewish friends, neighbors, family members, and coworkers, Happy Passover.  Let us hope the world finds peace, especially at this joyous season.


[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group, but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

[iv] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

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

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

  49. 2004 Saturday: According to Al-Jazeera, on the anniversary of the toppling of Iraqi thug dictator Saddam Hussein, heavy fighting rages across the entirety of Iraq with the exception of Kurdish areas.  There, they celebrate the fall of the murderous POS with parties, dancing, festivities, and in one place melt an ice carving of the hated dictator.
  50. 2005 Sunday: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao floats an idea to India, suggesting that the two rivals put past tensions between the two countries behind them and work at pooling resources and talent to become leading IT developers and manufacturers.  Doing so would signify the coming of the Asian Century.  No word from New Delhi.
  51. 2006 Monday: Illegal aliens across the United States take to the streets protesting a new bill, H.R. 4437 which would transform all illegal aliens in the country into felons.  Question: if hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens can pour out of the shadows and roam the streets, why are Border Patrol officers out there scooping them up, putting them in cages, and then deporting them back to whence the f**k they came?  This is what nations that love themselves do.  DO IT NOW.
  52. 2007 Tuesday: The U.S. government authorizes nearly $60 million for the Palestinian Authority.  How about this: how about NOT giving them the money?  They use it to commit terrorist attacks on Israel, not for the betterment of their people.  Elsewhere, all hell is breaking out in Baghdad.  The U.S. and Iraqi forces are fighting terrorists and scumbags and are planning to construct a wall around the Sunni neighborhoods in the capital city seeing as how much of the terrorism is coming from the Shia majority.

  57. 2012 Tuesday: The American company Apple, Inc. announces it is worth over $600 billion dollars, making the technology company the largest in the world by market capitalization.  Meanwhile, in the GOP presidential primary race, Senator Rick Santorum suspends his candidacy on this date which leaves Gov.

  58. 2013 Wednesday: The United States, Jordan, and Canada boycott a meeting of the U.N. General Assembly organized by former Serbian foreign minister, Vuk Jeremic.  Meanwhile, tensions on the Korean Peninsula continue to rise as South Korea and the United States raise threat levels and the People’s Republic of China and North Korea clamp down on border crossings.  This is back when the PRC was sort of working with regional countries and the U.S. to contend with North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
  59. 2014 Thursday: The head of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, announces that his company will begin selling its luxury electric cars in China later this month.  Meanwhile, around Aleppo, Syria, home of ISIS, 88 people die and scores of others are injured when the Syrian air force drops a series of barrel bombs on the city.  This of course drives liberals loony tunes as they think the use of barrel bombs is somehow a horrible thing.  Look, killing people is a horrible thing, what difference does it make if barrel bombs do the killing or President Barack Hussein Obama indiscriminately drones people all over the world sans any type of trial?
  60. 2015 Friday: As ISIS continues spreading terror throughout the Middle East, jihadists in Baghdad carry out a suicide bombing killing several people and wounding loads of others.  It appears that President Barack Obama has no ideas as how to combat this evil scourge of jihad evil.  We say, “Neutron bomb.  Painless.  Simple.  Quick.  Cheap.”
  61. 2016 Sunday: Three bigwigs of the pro-Democracy movement in Hong Kong- Agnes Chow, Nathan Law, and Joseph Wong form a new political movement to fight for the freedom of their fellow Hong Kongese from communist China.  Meanwhile, as the international committee led by U.S. Secretary of State John F. (Flipping) Kerry tries to coerce Iran into making the ‘deal only if they agree to discuss their missile programs,’ Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif says ‘any discussion of his nation’s missile systems will NOT happen.’
  62. 2017 Monday: The 113th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, nominated by President Donald J. Trump, takes his place on the court on this date.  The swearing in ceremony took place at the White House.  Associate Justice would take the place of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia who died last year.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms detain a political activist from Taiwan, Lee Ming-che, claiming he endangered Chi-Com national security along with his wife.  
  63. 2018 Tuesday: So-called “Boy Wonder,” Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, begins testifying before the U.S. Congress regarding data harvesting, lack of privacy for the social media giant’s users, and misuse of said data.   Elsewhere, the Israeli government announces the findings of its investigation into the death of a jihadist on the other side of the Gaza border fence.  A sniper put the thug down- someone identified as a Hamas terrorist- with one shot which is ruled a ‘clean kill.’  However, the soldiers who filmed the incident and then celebrated it are told not to behave like that.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: On this date, one of the most amazing photos to come out of the Event Horizon Telescope depicts a BLACK HOLE in 2017 in galaxy M87, approximately 6.5 billion times the mass of Earth and about 55 million light years distant.  Absolutely amazing!  Elsewhere, anyone on Medicare in the United States has had salespeople calling them up, telling them they are ‘eligible for back braces for their pain.’  All one must do is to give their information to these scoundrels.  Well, the federal government charges 24 scumbags for Medicare fraud, not a good thing, because these people were pushing back braces to many who did not need them and billing the feds for $1.2 billion for not only the back braces but other durable equipment medical devices.   Finally, the 6th U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen left office on this date.  She served under President Donald J. Trump from December 06, 2017, until today.
  65. 2020 Friday: China’s grand gift to the rest of the world, the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis continues claiming lives and ruining economies.  Currently, we have 1,699,632 confirmed cases of this hellacious disease what with 102,734 confirmed deaths and 376,330 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 502,876 confirmed cases what with 18,747 confirmed deaths and another 27,314 confirmed recoveries.   Around the world, pain, suffering, and death continue and it’s all because of two guilty culprits: communist China and the World Health Organization that continues to carry water for the communist nation.  President Trump informed the world today that the United States puts $500 million into the coffers of the corrupt organization every year while the People’s Republic of China puts in a measly $40-50 million per year yet the W.H.O. continues doing Beijing’s bidding.  This will have to change and the only way it will is when the United States returns to the Two-China Policy and recognizes Taiwan as a full member state of the U.N. and gives them back their seat on the Security Council.
  66. 2021 Saturday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden says he is going to maintain the current level of funding for the U.S. military, he is going to funnel it through Pine Island Acquisitions Corporation which is a major lobbying tailor-made for doing Deep State business with the federal government supplying its military needs (and most likely, to re-route money back around to liberal Democrats- the classic money-go-round.  However, what exactly the military is going to do other than to root out conservatism in the ranks is unclear because his Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki declared ‘the Biden administration WON’T confront communist China.’  Why would they?  The Chi-Coms fund the entire Biden clan.   Finally, Joe Biden is going to convene a ‘chip summit’ so we can find a way to eradicate our chip shortage.  Whoa, Joe.
  67. 2021 Saturday A: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, says that Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the border crisis.  He labels it a horrible ‘humanitarian crisis.’   Meanwhile, as this self-inflicted crisis continues, the Biden administration is going to continue housing illegal aliens at hotels in border cities (and elsewhere across the country).  (Note- Chefs Lilah and Itzi says that flights bringing illegals into Honolulu is indeed happening although they are doing their best to keep it quiet.  They say it’s the same as when President Obama was in office and states were giving their homeless populations one-way tickets to the islands.  NOT good).  
  68. 2021 Saturday B: JUDICIAL SYSTEM NEWS– following U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer saying yesterday that ‘packing the court is not the way to go,’ tens of thousands of raving lunatic leftists are out in the streets demanding that Justice Breyer step down now.  This is what you get when you coddle at least two generations by not giving them the belt across their asses when they cause problems as kids- you get a bunch of whiny, sniveling young people who behave like spoiled brats.  You know what Ichabod Crane said in “The Headless Horseman”- ‘spare the rod and spoil the child.’  Folks, instead of these worthless c***suckers canceling us, how about we cancel the living Bejeezus out of them?  It’s US or THEM.  Keep your seat, Justice Breyer, we may not agree with you on much, but this is flipping crazy.  In other court news, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s Gestapo-like order preventing home Bible study during the pandemic.  When can we recall this POS?  (Note- Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the libs on the court.  What a mistake he was).  In other news, famed legal scholar and professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV that the Dems are indeed doing their best to ‘stack the court.’
  69. 2021 Saturday C: 2020 ELECTION FRAUD, CORRUPTION, THEFT, AND FOREIGN INTERFERENCE NEWS– Governor Christopher T. Sununu, R-N.H., says he will sign an order to look into the voting machines used in the last election.  Word has it they flipped a lot of GOP votes to Democrats.  Is it not amazing how this just seemed to happen across the country?  And they claim there was NO election interference.   Elsewhere, after being ordered to remove the dead voters from the state’s voter rolls due to a court order, Pennsylvania announces they are going to clean up their voter rolls.  Isn’t this amazing, too, how when courts intervene on behalf of the voters, things start getting cleaned up?  NO wonder they still have “Fort Pelosi” up in Washington, D.C.   (Note- although the ‘un-elected governor of Georgia- Stacey Abrams once supported similar laws to what Georgia now has, she no longer does.  Too bad).
  70. 2021 Saturday D: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– Iranian leadership was all excited today touring a new centrifuge facility that will enrich uranium 50-times faster than they currently are.  Moreover, the good thing about it, it’s all for ‘peaceful purposes’ or so these lying scumbags claim.  Seems about time for another worm infecting their centrifuges to occur.  We know Joe Biden won’t do it so it’s up to the Israelis.  Next, the Chi-Coms have hit Alibaba with a $2.8 billion antitrust suit.  How does this work in a ‘communist country?’  It’s nice they pretend like they have laws when in fact, there is BUT ONE LAW- whatever dictator Xi Jinping says.
  71. 2021 Saturday E: RINO REPUBLICAN NEWS– It would appear that Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell has some residual guilt left from sticking the dagger in President Donald J. Trump’s neck by voting NOT to convict #45 in his second impeachment trial and then saying that ‘Trump was responsible for the False Flag Operation the Dems and their storm-troopers ran on January 06, 2021.’  Senator McConnell says that Joe Biden is ‘caving to the left on packing the U.S. Supreme Court and ending the filibuster.’  His good friend, Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, echoes his boss by ripping the Dems on their scheme to ‘pack the court’ and to ‘end the filibuster.’  (Note- these guys are hoping we will forget their RINO politics and their traitorous behavior towards a president who did what neither of them have ever been able to accomplish: #45 kept his word).   In REAL Republican news, Jason Miller says that ‘Donald Trump is still the head of the GOP no matter how much the RINO scum wants him NOT to be).
  72. 2021 Saturday F: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 135,030,164 confirmed cases, +991,984, 2,920,537  confirmed deaths, +15,983, and 76,746,058 confirmed recoveries, +557,436.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,348,231 confirmed cases, UP 140,461 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,142 confirmed deaths, UP 1,635, and 118,914,896 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned to action following a bout with cancer and reformed his band.  The subsequent release is “The Midnight Ramble Sessions, Volume II” (August 16, 2006).  Joining the drummer/vocalist, were Little Sammy Davis (vocals/harmonica), Larry Campbell  (guitars), Dr. John (pianos), Michael Merritt (bass), and several others.  Davis is the vocalist and front man for the group seeing as how Helm was recovering from throat cancer which is amazing because the band roars through a set of blues tunes that leave one’s head ablaze and ears a-smoking.  Levon manages to do some vocals which is good.  We hope that you will investigate this one to your heart’s content and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and enjoy.  It’s amazing, of that we guarantee.

The Central Intelligence Agency has ruled out hostile foreign actors as the cause of the mysterious ‘Havana syndrome’ reports that seemingly afflict U.S. diplomatic missions around the world. However, they offer no alternative, so we still are in the dark.

  2. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 433,964 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 raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 71,592 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 365 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 7,128,357 confirmed cases, 78,428 confirmed deaths, and 6,959,929 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,289,959 confirmed cases, 63,569 confirmed deaths, and 3,662,938 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 190,678 confirmed cases, 1,126 confirmed deaths, and 189,552 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,123,959 confirmed cases, 10,340 confirmed deaths, and 351,513 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Michigan: they have 2,082,983 confirmed cases, 31,275 confirmed deaths, and 1,382,066 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 2,103,945 confirmed cases, 8,370 confirmed deaths, and 1,683,115 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Democratic Republic of the Congo, 121st country on the list: 84,198 cases of the virus, 1,278 confirmed death and 50,930 confirmed recoveries.[iv]  Like other countries in Equatorial Africa, they use loads of hydroxychloroquine to combat malaria and thus have very few cases, fewer deaths, and lots of recoveries.  What does this suggest?           
  5. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,715.39, DOWN 313.26 points (-0.89%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,154.02 DOWN 186.24 points (-1.30%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,482.73, DOWN 50.03 points (-1.10%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $84.67 per barrel, -1.13 (-1.32%).  The price of GOLD is $1,839.80 per troy oz., -3.40 (-0.18%) while the price of SILVER is $24.53 per troy ounce, +0.30 (+1.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,044.70 per troy oz, +16.30 (+1.58%) while the price of COPPER is $4.53 per pound, +0.06 (+1.26%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,051.91 per troy oz., +50.30 (+2.51%).

  6. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.648 per gallon, $3.215 in Florida, $4.343 in Hawaii, and $3.959 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Nevada- $3.808.  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 102nd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- South Africa: $4.905 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,819,568,835,032 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Brazil the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland with $256,000,000,000 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).
  7. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border crisis now for 296 days and worse, she has not shown up anywhere along the border to do the especially important job appointed to her by President Biden in 209 days.  Since One America News has fallen by the wayside with its reporting on the illegal alien crisis, the AICPENDBLOG.COM have taken it upon ourselves to compile statistics.  Here is the cost of caring for the undocumented migrants in the United States as we speak for this day alone: $1,918,108,020.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the undocumented in the country combined with the previous year’s tally: $405,980,981,403.  Next, here is the suspected number of undocumented aliens who have crossed the border for the first 20 days of the year: 197,253.  Finally, here is the low estimate for the number of noncitizens currently residing in the country: 42,354,641.

  9. 2022 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- “America’s Doctor” Tony Fauci says that unvaccinated Americans threaten the end of the pandemic in 2022.  In other COVID-19-related news, hospitals that were overwhelmed by vast numbers of the Omicron variant are now reporting steep declines in the numbers of COVID-19 cases.  Most educated people believe the pandemic is on the wane and that what we continue seeing in the United States is little more than politics.

  16. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I- Reports now say that President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has racked up more regulatory costs than his recent predecessors.   In other news, late last night, President Joe Biden said that ‘if his voting rights bills were not passed, then the outcome of the November elections could be in doubt.  Next, the President hammered his doubters when he said that yes, he did question PRC leader Xi Jinping on the origins of COVID-19.
  17. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- A new Rasmussen poll says that 60-percent of American voters believe President Joe Biden’s first year in office to be a failure.  Ouch.  In other news embarrassing to the 46th president, President Biden dismissed China’s role in the global COVID-19 pandemic.  Meanwhile, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘Joe Biden is sending a feckless message to Vladimir Putin of Russia regarding the impending invasion of Ukraine.’
  18. : Joe Biden Regime News I- Vice President Kamala Harris has said that world leaders are asking her ‘what’s happening with American democracy.’  She claims foreign leaders are concerned we are losing our status as the world’s greatest democracy.  Next, the Biden administration has slapped some sanctions atop several Ukrainians who are reportedly working with the Russians and not with Kyiv.  In other administration-related news, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says that President Biden is working hard to end COVID-19 restrictions and that he never supported ‘defund the police.’   The press secretary also had to clarify the president’s remarks on the 2022 Mid-Term Elections possibly being illegitimate because of the failure by Senate Democrats to shove the two voting bills through to fruition.
  19. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News II- The Central Intelligence Agency has ruled out hostile foreign actors as the cause of the mysterious ‘Havana syndrome’ reports that seemingly afflict U.S. diplomatic missions around the world.  However, they offer no alternative, so we still are in the dark.  In other administration news, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says the U.S. is prepared to impose some draconian consequences atop the Russians should they send their armored and infantry columns into Ukraine.

  21. 2022 Thursday T: Political News I- Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, accuses President Joe Biden of telling a “BIG LIE” on voter suppression.   Next, Energy and Commerce Republicans are questioning Health and Human Services on its COVID-19 research.  House Intel Committee Republicans have announced that they won’t comply with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s edict on taking frequent COVID-19 tests because according to them, there are not enough for the American people.
  22. 2022 Thursday U: Political News II- Former President Donald J. Trump says that yesterday, President Biden alluded to the 2020 Elections being ‘fraudulent.’  Next Congressman Scott DesJarlais, R-TN 4th congressional district, says that yesterday, ‘Biden cried Trump.’  (Note- Donald Trump blamed President Barack Obama for everything negative so turnabout is fair play in my book).  In other news, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that President Joe Biden should name the FIVE Republicans he claimed are favorable to his agenda but are fearful to support. 
  23. 2022 Thursday V: Political News III- In Arkansas, gubernatorial candidate Sarah Huckabee Sanders has raised $12.8 million with which to win the governor’s mansion.   In other news, firebrand Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says that U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor should resign from the nation’s high court if she is indeed at risk from COVID-19.  Congresswoman Greene says this because of the now-disproven report of friction between Justices Sotomayor and Neil Gorsuch over his refusal to wear a mask during SCOTUS sessions.  Speaking of COVID-19, unvaccinated Congressman Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, announces that he has tested positive yet again for the virus.

  25. 2022 Thursday X: Political News V- U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, R-CA 12th congressional district, claims she is open to banning stock trades by members.  Question, Madam Speaker: is this because you and husband, Paul, have already gotten yours?  In other political news, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says that the GOP will debate, just not on the commission’s terms.  Elsewhere, AOC Squad member Congressman Jamaal Bowman, D-NY 16th congressional district, underwent arrest among a group of hunger-strikers protesting the collapse of President Biden’s election reforms.
  26. 2022 Thursday Y: Federal and State Court News- James Tate Grant- a 29-year-old man from the Tarheels State- has been ordered back into federal custody following his attempted escape from law enforcement officers last month.  Suspected of driving while intoxicated, he attempted to flee the cops and once pulled over, he was discovered to have an AR-15 rifle and 60 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle.  He was out on bond awaiting trial on charges he assaulted two Capitol Hill Police Department officers during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Next, California’s shutdown of gun stores during the pandemic has been ruled ILLEGAL.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson’s next album was a blast from the pass- “In Concert 1975,” an album that hit record store shelves on August 13, 2007.  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but then-wife, Linda Thompson, on vocals, the amazing John Kirkpatrick on accordions and concertinas, Dave Pegg on the bass, and Dave Mattacks on the drums.  The band rocks through 15 of their wonderful songs, covering both hard rockers and sentimental songs of sadness and longing, and everything in between.  We do hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-expanding collection of albums from ‘back in the day’ as compared to the crap one now must listen to on most radio stations like fish-lipped sluts with oversized butts, brain-dead rappers, and chicks with single names and little else to their credit, this is something that will raise your heart from the perverse gutter into which WOKE has shoved everyone’s ears.  Seek it out now and enjoy- you will be so glad you did, of that, we are certain.

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-SIXTY-FIVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME

19. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19, 2022, UPDATE A:

Robert E. Lee’s Birthday in Florida; Confederate Heroes Day in Texas; Happy Birthday, Chef Vicky!

It appears President Joseph R. Biden’s agenda is dead, dead, buried, and gone.  Momentous changes coming in November…

  1.  2022 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 338,949,576 confirmed cases, +4,020,742, 5,582,430 confirmed deaths, +9,718 and 272,626,440 confirmed recoveries, +1,993,745. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 69,582,430 confirmed cases, UP 955,141 from yesterday’s reporting, 880,160 confirmed deaths, UP +3,003,[i] and 43,700,835 confirmed recoveries, UP 405,955. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 430,876 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 raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 68,504 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 364 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 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: 7,037,467 confirmed cases, 78,275 confirmed deaths, and 6,959,192 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,244,209 confirmed cases, 63,458 confirmed deaths, and 3,662,938 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 184,767 confirmed cases, 1,126 confirmed deaths, and 183,641 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,110,406 confirmed cases, 10,317 confirmed deaths, and 351,274 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., North Carolina: they have 2,147,777 confirmed cases, 20,037 confirmed deaths, and 1,748,088 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 2,035,432 confirmed cases, 8,362 confirmed deaths, and 1,530,716 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Angola, 120th country on the list: 94,779 cases of the virus, 1,887 confirmed death and 85,603 confirmed recoveries.[iv]           
  5. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,028.65, DOWN 339.82 points (-0.96%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,340.25 DOWN 166.64 points (-1.15%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,532.76, DOWN 44.35 points (-0.97%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $86.14 per barrel, +0.71 (+0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,838.90 per troy oz., +26.50 (+1.46%) while the price of SILVER is $24.15 per troy ounce, +0.66 (+2.80%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,017.60 per troy oz, +38.10 (+3.89%) while the price of COPPER is $4.45 per pound, +0.06 (+1.44%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,989.17 per troy oz., +91.82 (+4.84%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,220,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,052.00 per USD/T, +27.50 (+0.91%). The price of ZINC is $3,620.00 per troy oz., +53.00 (+0.91%).   The price of COCOA is $2,657.00 per USD/T, +26.00 (+0.99%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,223.70 USD 1,000 board feet -45.00 (-3.52%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000024.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.34 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.50.    In El Salvadoran Colón, one greenback equals 875 and in Saudi Riyal, a buck equals 3.75 and in São Tomé and Principe Dobra, one dollar equals 21,224.39 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.649 per gallon, $3.217 in Florida, $4.333 in Hawaii, and $3.958 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: New Mexico- $3.255.  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 101st HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Fiji: $4.884 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,817,463,719,659 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258,000,000,000 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).
  7. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Our dear Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border crisis now for 295 days and it’s been 208 days since she arrived there to do the job.  Even I have problems defending this.  Here are the statistics for the ongoing crisis as computed by the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  First, here is the cost for this day alone of caring for the undocumented migrants: $1,822,202,619.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the undocumented for the past 364 days: $405,995,076,012.  Next, here is the number of undocumented who have attempted to cross the border this year or who have successfully negotiated it, and have escaped into the interior: 187,391.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of noncitizens in the U.S. for the past 364 days: 42,344,779.  If this miniscule number is indeed true, it still is an unacceptable number because of the cost on the dwindling resource our country possesses.  We have noncitizens here, too.  We have people from across Asia, from New Zealand and Australia, from Europe, Canada, even the Caribbean.  They drive up rents, lower wages, drive drunk on our not-so-great roads, commit robberies, rapes, and other crimes.  President Biden, please defend our borders.  Thank you.
  8. 2022 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Amid the ongoing crisis in Lebanon, the U.S. Treasury slaps new sanctions on Hezbollah.  Next- and this is good news- Israel announces that it has had a ‘breakthrough’ on its antiballistic missile tests.  When Iran’s missiles are incoming, we hope they can take them all down.  (Note- we also hope they have developed missiles of their own that can carry the fight to Tehran and pulverize that horrible city).  In other foreign and overseas news, fury is growing among the civilized peoples of the world over the Chinese communists slaughtering small animals in Hong Kong, all because of claims they are COVID-19-positive.  This sounds as though it’s a punitive measure against the freedom-loving peoples of Hong Kong.
  9. 2022 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson has made an astounding about-face since he is facing being booted as the PM over his partying while the rest of the nation was under harsh lockdown and restrictions.  Thus- coincidentally, “BoJo” says that he ‘believes COVID-19 has peaked’ and that the country NO longer requires ‘COVID-19 passports, mask mandates, or work restrictions.’  The country is now FREE!  However, across the English Channel, French President Emanuel Macron is demanding that the European Union add ‘abortion rights’ to the EU’s charter.   Finally, the parents of Otto Warmbier- murdered by the North Koreans- have received $240,000 seized from the North Koreans.  Good for them.  This in no way can right the loss but it will help to set things right.
  10. 2022 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The World Health Organization revealed today that there’s ‘no evidence showing children or adults require a booster shot to combat the COVID-19 virus.’  Well.  If you want to come to Hawaii, Governor David Ige now says visitors need THREE SHOTS or no entry.
  11. 2022 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– The Utah state Senate has voted overwhelmingly to end all statewide mask mandates.  Good for you.  However, President Joseph R. Biden is handing out 400 ‘free’ N95 masks to Americans who want them.  My colleagues believe this is far from being altruistic; no, they believe that members of my party receive kickbacks for doing such beneficial things.  They could be right.  When it comes to government, nothing is ever ‘free.’  We pay for it.

  17. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden News I– President Joseph R. Biden Jr., continues with what some call ‘fearmongering,’ by perpetually suggesting that Vladimir Putin is going to invade Ukraine.  It’s as if he is willing the United States and the NATO allies into war with Russia.  Some believe it’s a case of ‘wag the dog,’ that since his poll numbers are abysmally low, he is seeking something to divert attention away from his domestic troubles.  Next, Joe Biden has named two big donors to become ambassadors to the United Kingdom and Denmark.  I thought we weren’t going to do these things anymore.
  18. 2022 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Politico Morning Consult poll says that a majority of Americans do not believe that Joe Biden is capable of leading the country.  They are questioning their mental fitness.
  19. 2022 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden White House is soft-launching a COVID-19 website with which to disseminate information regarding vaccines, mask and test distributions, and other information pertinent to the American people.  Next, the administration is telling the chip industry to brace for possible Russian export curbs.  Regarding talk of still more COVID-19 relief, former South Carolina governor, and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley slams Democrats over this never-ending debacle.
  20. 2022 Wednesday S: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Further details emerge on the Oath Keepers ‘weapons stockpile’ last year on January 06, 2021.  Next, the 1-06-2021 select committee announced today that they will be interviewing mystery man, Ray Epps, on Friday.  Remember- this man was seen all day January 05, 2021, and the morning of the following day whipping up a frenzy among Trump voters to storm the Capitol.  (Note- in a sidebar, Alec Baldwin- irascible actor- found himself slammed with a lawsuit after he accused some woman of having participated in the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill riots.  He should keep his mouth shut.  He’s not on anyone’s list of popularity right now seeing as how he shot two people- murdered one of them- and refuses to take any responsibility for it.  Shame on him.  In other news, the U.S. Department of Justice is going to provide the select committee with four pages of Donald Trump’s documents from last year concerning the riots.  Finally, new analysis shows that Ashli Babbitt- murdered by Capitol Hill Police Lt. Michael Byrd on January 06, 2021, was trying to steer protesters away from the door when Officer Byrd shot and killed her.  This is not good.
  21. 2022 Wednesday T: Political News I– As his fellow Democrats continue blasting Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, and Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, Senator Joe Manchin says- regarding primary challengers- to bring them on, that it’s a way of life for him.  Regarding Senator Sinema, Emily’s List says it will cut her off over her stance on the filibuster rule.  She won’t change it.  In other Joe Manchin-related news, sports figures are pressuring him to support ending the filibuster so the party can get the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act pushed through.   Newbie Senator Mark Kelly, D-AZ, says he will ‘conditionally support changing the filibuster rule.’
  22. 2022 Wednesday U: Political News II– Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says ‘it’s well past time for “America’s Doctor” Tony Fauci to go.[xi]  In other GOP news, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that the Republicans want President Donald J. Trump back in the White House ASAP.   Next, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says that Senate Majority Leader Charles “Chuck” Schumer, D-NY, says that ‘Leader Schumer is terrified- his words- of facing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY 14th congressional district, in a primary challenge this fall.  (Leader Schumer is having other problems what with bills reining in BIG TECH on the horizon and his ties to BIG TECH).
  23. 2022 Wednesday V: Political News III– House Democrats are assuring President Joseph R. Biden that they are willing to pass portions of his Build Back Better bill.  In other news, things are not looking up for Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, GOP: in a recent straw poll, out of five or six candidates, he received just ONE vote.  Not good.  In other news, Congressman Lance Gooden, R-TX 5th congressional district, says that the resettlement loan program is drawing more undocumented migrants into the United States.
  24. 2022 Wednesday W: Political News IV– This evening word came that Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin voted with the GOP thus ending any hope of pushing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act.  President Joe Biden’s agenda is now DEAD.  Completely.  In other news, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Republican- possible U.S. Senate candidate against first-termer Mark Kelly, Democrat, says that the Copper State ‘will not permit President Biden to intimidate his state’ over the ongoing investigation into the 2020 Elections.  Finally, Texas Attorney General Kenneth Paxton says the Lone Star State’s synagogue standoff demonstrates WHY NO ONE trusts the FBI anymore.  Yeah, kind of curious as to WHY the FBI doesn’t protect our nation from true terrorists?
  25. 2022 Wednesday X: Political News V– MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough says that President Joe Biden’s ‘leftist governing has failed.’  (Note- he did promise to be a uniter and not a divider and things are not going well).  Speaking of the President, he did concede during today’s lengthy press conference that the country is indeed weary of COVID-19 but that the country is in a better place.’  Mr. President, the country is in a WORSE place- you need to step it up or you will go down.  In other political news, Congressman Tim Walberg, R-MI 7th congressional district, says that parents are still the ‘educators’ and that ‘teachers teach.’  Amen.
  26. 2022 Wednesday Y: U.S. Supreme Court News I– Despite what news reports suggest, the U.S. Supreme Court says there is no mask feud between fully vaccinated- and boosted- Associate Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Neil Gorsuch.  I do not believe there ever was and if true, then it seems mighty silly.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of a Bremerton, Washington, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy for refusing to halt prayers at the 50-yard line with his players AFTER the game was over.  Friends, we must return religion to the schools if we are to save the nation.  Finally, the Supreme Court has refused Donald Trump’s bid to shield documents from the 01-06-2021 select committee.
  27. 2022 Wednesday Z: Lawsuit and Legal News– The University of Michigan has arrived at a $490 million settlement to settle sexual assault claims that have been lodged against this institution of higher learning.  In other legal news, Britney Spears is still having trouble with her corrupt family.  The recently-liberated girl had to send a ‘cease and desist’ letter to her sister.  Britney says she ‘won’t be bullied.’  In other news, a woman is suing Southwest Airlines after she was ejected from a flight.  Finally, the Trump Org. is responding powerfully to New York State Attorney General Letitia James, Democrat, who is running a malicious prosecution against the former president.
  28. 2022 Wednesday AA: Crime and Punishment News– We watch the news in Hawaii, too, and we have seen the appalling train robberies occurring in Los Angeles, California.  This is shocking and this must end.  I would suggest to leaders in my party that to diminish the problem of crime across the country is going to transform lots of Democrats into reluctant Republicans, reluctant Republicans who will vote for the GOP.  It helps not that U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg says ZIP about these crimes.  He needs to step up and do something to stop this.  NOW.  In other crime news, freshman New York City Mayor Eric Adams says that he ‘does not feel safe on the city’s subways.’   Bet you won’t be taking them to work anymore- and unlike your fellow citizens- you have security protecting you.  Finally, the police arrested Cleveland Browns’ player Malik McDowell for indecent exposure and for assaulting a police officer during his arrest.  Note to Malik- keep your thing in your pants.
  29. 2022 Wednesday BB: New York State News– As New York State descends into madness, Andrew Giuliani, GOP, says that as attorney general, he would tackle crime on Day No. 1.  In other Empire State news, Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, has raised $8.4 million in his bid to become the state’s next governor.
  30. 2022 Wednesday CC: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3631 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 25, 27, 46, 47, and Mega 24.  Out of 80,396 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $4,853 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #939 with a jackpot of $62 million up for grabs: 11, 15, 43, 55, 61, and Power 10.  Out of 37,236 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $505,966.

241. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 29, 2021

MMM. 2020 Saturday A: Early this morning, police in Portland, Oregon, declared yet another riot after a so-called ‘peaceful protest’ once again erupted into a violent mob shortly after midnight. These peaceful ‘beatnik types’ tried to trap law enforcement officers inside the police union building and then did everything they could to set it ablaze and murder the people inside. Folks, there is an answer to this: anyone tossing a Molotov cocktail, you shoot them dead.

  54. 2009 Saturday: Funeral services occurred in Boston for U.S. Sen. Edward M.

  58. 2014 Friday: In Senegal, health authorities report the first case of Ebola virus in a 21-year-old man who met people in neighboring Guinea who had the virus.  Meanwhile, the government of the United Kingdom raises its terror alert to ‘severe’ due to the high number of its citizens flocking to fight on the side of ISIS in both Iraq and in Syria among other theaters facing the same foes.
  59. 2015 Saturday: In Hawaii, NASA puts a six-person team into isolation within a small dome to simulate the conditions of a six-month theoretical trip to the planet, Mars.  The group will have no fresh air or food and will wear spacesuits when exiting the dome.

Trump.   
  63. 2019 Thursday: In “Science” magazine, an article featuring research into the so-called ‘gay gene,’ the one gays swear exists- especially those claiming to be ‘born that way’ says there is NO single gene accounting for those attracted to members of the same sex.  Now, some claim the ‘attraction’ is as high as 25-percent which most people believe is preposterous.
  64. 2020 Saturday: While President Trump was visiting the Gulf Coast states of Texas and Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura- a storm in which at least 14 people died- the father of George Blake celebrates his son by repeatedly calling for calm while doing everything possible to stir up another riot.  Contradictory indeed.  Meanwhile, South Korea reports dramatic increases in new COVID-19 numbers, especially around the capital of Seoul where more than half of the country’s 51 million people lives.  Speaking of the Bat Flu, Berlin police shut down an anti-COVID-19 protest rally demanding an end to the onerous restrictions placed upon the German populace.  Some of the marchers carried American, Russian, and German Reich flags while others wore QANON t-shirts, what liberals claim to be ‘conspiracy theories.’  Elsewhere, reports regarding the costs of all the Antifa- and Black Lives Matter- funded and initiated riots are coming out.  Minneapolis is down in the crapper with more than $500 million while in Bill Di Blasio’s city, they are facing a deficit of $290 million in destroyed buildings, infrastructure, and emergency rescue and police vehicles.  Should have stopped the riots.  Finally, the U.S. FDA okays the expanded use of the drug Remdesvir for use in ALL COVID-19 cases and not just potentially lethal ones.   For those in critical condition due to the Kung Flu, within five days, 65-percent of the patients dramatically improve.  What about hydroxychloroquine?  Cheap and effective!
  65. 2020 Saturday A: Early this morning, police in Portland, Oregon, declared yet another riot after a so-called ‘peaceful protest’ once again erupted into a violent mob shortly after midnight.  These peaceful ‘beatnik types’ tried to trap law enforcement officers inside the police union building and then did everything they could to set it ablaze and murder the people inside.  Folks, there is an answer to this: anyone tossing a Molotov cocktail, you shoot them dead.  This stops this sort of illegal activity in its tracks and puts everyone else on notice as to what you will and what you WON’T accept.  This used to be the way things were done.  Elsewhere, another military mishap occurs as a U.S. Army helicopter crashes into San Clemente Island 70 miles off of Coronado, California, killing two special forces soldiers and wounding several others.  Finally, U.S. Director of National Intelligence ignites a firestorm among House Democrats when he says he ‘will no longer testify in person before the House about Election security.’  He will, however, provide written answers.  Of course the Dems are angry, they can no longer showboat and act like a bunch of rapscallions as they do any time a member of the Trump administration testifies before them.
  66. 2020 Saturday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days.  Sorry.
  67. 2021 Sunday: Let us hope today is a better day than any of the others this past week.  Man, the collapse of Afghanistan and Joe Biden being a zombie, man, is our country in danger, big, big danger…in other news- Chi-Coms, stop f**king with us.  Leave us the f**k alone.  We should have nuked you long, long ago.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fans of Jethro Tull love guitarist Martin Barre because he continues the great band’s music with his own touches as he continues plowing ahead.  His new album, “Back to Steel,” came out on October 06, 2015, and is a delightful addition to both his solo repertoire and to Jethro Tull’s interconnected discography.  The band features Mr. Barre (guitars, mandolins, banjos, flutes, and keyboards), Dan Crisp (guitars and vocals), George Lindsey (drums and percussion), Alan Thompson and Alan Bray (bass, vocals), and 2-3 others.  We love the man, his band, and his music so folks, please seek this one out, give it a good listen, and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[iv] See footnote ii.

[v] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[vii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[viii] We look forward to promoting the music of Roy Orbison when we do other classic rockers such as Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers, and others of that ilk.

[ix] See footnote vii.

[x] Many of the Yippies are the parents of the Antifa and Black Lives Matter trash running rampant in America’s streets in 2020.  Time to tune up their kids- NOW.

[xi] 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.  The album, “Abracadabra,” which features the cut appeared on Tuesday, 09-August-2011.

TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 2020

Although ultimately successful based on sheer weight of numbers, a Chi-Com invasion of Taiwan would become a graveyard for 2 million or more of their servicemembers and would also prove a humiliation for them and their war machine…

We at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day expect that the Russians, Chi-Coms, or even the lowlife Iranians will roll in and occupy the base. It would make sense for Kabul to invite either the Russians back in or to welcome the Chi-Coms who would guarantee their security while raping their country. It’s inevitable.

BLOG POST #4,014 AT THE AICP-END

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 498

DAY ONE-HUNDRED-AND-SIXTY-FOUR OF THE BIDEN REGIME

183. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 02, 2021 UPDATE A:

Roswell, New Mexico Day (UFO Enthusiasts)

Although ultimately successful based on sheer weight of numbers, a Chi-Com invasion of Taiwan would become a graveyard for 2 million or more of their servicemembers and would also prove a humiliation for them and their war machine…

  1. : COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 183,830,920 confirmed cases, +403,036, 3,979,322  confirmed deaths, +7,728 and 168,262,590 confirmed recoveries, +32,647.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,578,931 confirmed cases, UP 17,528 from yesterday’s reporting, 620,971 confirmed deaths, UP 326,[i] and 29,071,515 confirmed recoveries, UP 19,428.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]  
  2. : JOE BIDEN TO DONALD J. TRUMP COVID-19 DEATHS- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 303,065 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 156,584 deaths  
  3. : COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,820,094 confirmed cases, 63,759 confirmed deaths, and 2,074,613 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,380,170 confirmed cases, 37,963 confirmed deaths, and 2,211,622 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,807 confirmed cases, 518 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 454,722 confirmed cases, 5,987 confirmed deaths, and 226,644 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wyoming: they have 62,445 confirmed cases, 747 confirmed deaths, and 61,084 confirmed recoveries.[iii]    
  4. : FOREIGN COVID STATS OF THE DAY- Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 842,371 confirmed cases, 6,429 (DOWN) confirmed deaths, and 833,727 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Swaziland, 135th country on the list: 19,084 cases of the virus, 678 confirmed deaths and 18,107 confirmed recoveries.[iv]     
  5. : FRIDAY’S STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,786.35, UP 152.82 points (+0.44%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,693.33, UP 116.95 points (+0.81%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,352.34, UP 32.40 points (+0.75%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $75.19 per barrel, +0.03 (+0.04%).  The price of GOLD is $1,787.70 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.25%) while the price of SILVER is $26.60 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.35%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,089.60 per troy oz, +1.90 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.28 per pound, +0.00 (+0.07%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,785.54 per troy oz, +21.67 (+0.78%).[vi] The price of RHODIUM is $19,500.00 per troy oz., -600.00 (-2.99%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $608,000.00 per troy oz., +20,500.00 (+3.49%). [vii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  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 19.76.     In South Korean Won, one greenback equals 1,130.53 and in South Sudanese Pound, a buck equals 130.26 and in Sri Lankan Rupee, one dollar equals 199.00 of theirs.[viii]        
  6. : 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 over $4.288 per gallon, $3.009 in Florida, $4.016 in Hawaii, and $3.776 in Washington state.[ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Rhode Island: $3.005.  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- Australia: $4.71 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,475,815,541,842 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Kuwait, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Sweden with $47 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position.
  7. : JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Today is Day No. 101 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border with NO resolution of the crisis and Day No. 7 since her brief quickie trip to El Paso, Texas, where she did a photo op.  However, other governors are working to solve the problem what with Governor Mike DeWine, RINO-OH, sending 200 National Guardsmen to help Texas contend with the catastrophe unfolding down there.   Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is encouraging landowners along the U.S.-Mexico border to report ALL damages to their property caused by the illegal alien invasion to the Division of Emergency Management so the state can begin the process of defending the nation and helping the property owners.  In other border news, House Minority Leader Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says the ‘Democrats are defunding the border.’  Amen.
  8. FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- Sadly, as soon as the last flight carrying U.S. troops from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, looters rolled in and began ransacking the large base.  Why the U.S. did not blow the base up and make it unusable is beyond us but that’s Obama-Biden for you, same procedure as when the U.S. cut and ran from Iraq.   We at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day expect that the Russians, Chi-Coms, or even the lowlife Iranians will roll in and occupy the base.  It would make sense for Kabul to invite either the Russians back in or to welcome the Chi-Coms who would guarantee their security while raping their country.  It’s inevitable.
  9. : FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II- After Chi-Com thug Xi Jinping celebrated 100 years of brutal dictatorship by the Chinese Communist Party and proclaimed, ‘reunification with Taiwan is coming and soon,’ many are now shivering that WAR is coming to the world and far sooner than expected.  Folks, the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes a couple of things: first- although most likely successful at some point, invading Taiwan is also going to prove to be a debacle, a graveyard for several million Chi-Com soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines.  It will be humiliating the loss of life and the shattering of the ethos surrounding the Chi-Com military buildup and its invincibility.  Second, we believe that during this period of NO TRUMP in the White House, the time is now for the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, the Iranians, the North Koreans and other trash to make a go for it.  What the hell is Joe Biden and Kamala Harris going to do about it?  NOTHING.  (Some might say we’re living in the “End Times”).
  10. : VOTING INTEGRITY / FRAUDULENT AND STOLEN ELECTION NEWS- Trump adviser Jason Miller says that the Supreme Court’s ruling on Arizona’s election laws demonstrate that Americans want to get elections and voting rights correct except when President Donald J. Trump is on the ballot.   Meanwhile, Democrats continue sniveling and whining about 2020 Election audits, the GOP-controlled Pennsylvania state senate is gearing up to conduct their own Arizona-style forensic 2020 Election audit so they can learn the truth.  Of course, Democrats don’t want this.  Wah, wah, wah.  This is what you get for stealing elections, the American people won’t stand for it.
  11. : JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Fresh off from watching Law and Order SVU in the basement at the White House, Joe Biden wants to create a SVU in the U.S. military so victims of sexual assault can get some sort of resolution to what seems to be an ongoing problem.   In other more shocking news, Joe Biden is encouraging 9 million illegal aliens to become U.S. citizens which is WHY the GOP must go out there and make the effort to woo these people to the Republican Party.  Yes, we must employ these disgusting tactics to carry out the strategic aims of getting the Democrats to become the deporters-in-chief.
  12. : POLITICAL NEWS I- Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23 congressional district ‘should not play into the Dems January 06, 2021 select committee.’  In other political news- and anyone above the level of grade 5 idiot could have told the Democrats this- Democrats are now sweating bullets about the already fading chances of “Kooky Kamala” Harris for 2024.  They are now realizing what Californians already know and that is she can’t win an election without the fix being in (meaning help from Willie Brown) and have no clue as how to either make the phony more appealing or to offload her.   The only good thing about her and Joe ‘winning’ the 2020 Presidential Election is that Californians were able to get her out of the state and make her the problem of the entire nation and not just the Golden State’s.  (Note- because elections are so fraudulent in California, she was able to achieve the few posts she did).
  13. : POLITICAL NEWS II- Congressman Barry Loudermilk, R-GA 11th congressional district, said today how shocking it is to see (embittered) Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, climb into political bed with nonagenarian, addled-brained House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, CPUSA-CA 12th congressional district.  (Note- rats always show their true colors when called out on the carpet and put in their place by becoming a true rat and going to work for the other side).
  14. : U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS I- The U.S. Supreme Court slapped down House Judiciary Committee Democrats who have been trying to get their grubby hands on grand jury testimony compiled by corrupt special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.  They have been salivating since 2019 to see if evidence existed of President Donald J. Trump having lied to Mr. Mueller as to whether he was doing business with the Russkies or not.   Lower court rulings said the Democrats could get their hands on the testimony but today, the nation’s high court told them to f**k off.  About flipping time.   In other high court news, Associate Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch believe it’s time to take a new look at the 1964 watershed ruling of New York Times v. Sullivan that made it much more difficult for public figures to sue journalists for defamation, lies, and other depredations that are bogus.  Excellent.
  15. : ECONOMIC NEWS- The jobs report for June 2021 is in and decrepit old Joe Biden is cackling about how great it is that 850,000 jobs were added to the economy.  Critics however point out that old Joe promised somewhere around 2.4 million new jobs as Americans returned to work.  However, with continued financial aid coming from the federal government, many younger, less eager workers are willing to return to work.  (Note- as inflation increases and everything- including food and energy- continue going up, fewer people will seek to return to work).   Former Congressman Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district dismisses the job numbers and says as we do that ‘inflation is rising’ which it is and what’s worse- it’s a TAX on virtually everything.
  16. : CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS / MEGA-MILLIONS DRAW- Here are the results for the Mega Millions #1673 Draw what with a $72 million on the line: 08, 31, 32, 34, 45, and Mega 19.  Out of 50,865 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $1,561,405.  The winning ticket was sold at Circle K in Anaheim, California, 92801.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 2021

DD. 1954 Saturday: The cost to keep the Huguettes supplied north of the main camp at Dien Bien Phu have become too costly to keep up night after night. Fighting the past couple of nights has lasted nearly to dawn, seen too many good men killed and wounded, and has damaged some of the light tanks remaining to the garrison. There are so many Viet Minh troops surrounding the base now that fighting to hold outlying ground or worse- recapture it- is too much for the remaining defenders. They will leave the outlying posts to their fates.

  43. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  44. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  45. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  46. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  47. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  48. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  49. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khomeini, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  50. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chi-Coms don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  51. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  52. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  53. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  54. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  55. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  56. 2017 Monday: The Chi-Coms continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  The Chi-Coms are like syphilis, they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  57. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the book stores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  58. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  59. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  60. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  61. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  62. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  63. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  64. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS- Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  65. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  66. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I- Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  67. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II- Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  68. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III- Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  69. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV- Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  70. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS- The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  71. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS- first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25. Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Temple of Rock, the newest project by Michael Schenker continues rocking forward.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist from the Fatherland are bassist Francis Buchholz, Michael Voss (vocals), Herman Rarebell (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards).  The resulting effort produced “Bridge the Gap,” which hit record store shelves on December 03, 2013.  One thing is for sure and that is you cannot keep good German rockers down as these guys have the fire in their bellies and it’s stoked up white hot.  We hope you will rush out and seek this one out NOW so you can add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

[iv] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

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

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] See previous.

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

32. 1954 Saturday: Incredibly, the fight to control the Elianes around Dien Bien Phu continue. General Giap of the People’s Army continues sending in wave after wave of attackers beginning late in the evening. Artillery shells fall upon the French defenders, the attackers force their way through rolls of concertina barbed wire and hand-to-hand fighting goes on to near dawn. Still, reinforcements scraped up from other parts of French Indochina are able to parachute into the encircled base tonight and tomorrow night.

  50. 2005 Sunday: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao floats an idea to India, suggesting that the two rivals put past tensions between the two countries behind them and work at pooling resources and talent to become leading IT developers and manufacturers.  Doing so would signify the coming of the Asian Century.  No word from New Delhi.
  51. 2006 Monday: Illegal aliens across the United States take to the streets protesting a new bill, H.R. 4437 which would transform all illegal aliens in the country into felons.  Question: if hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens can pour out of the shadows and roam the streets, why are Border Patrol officers out there scooping them up, putting them in cages, and then deporting them back to whence the f**k they came?  This is what nations that love themselves do.  DO IT NOW.
  52. 2007 Tuesday: The U.S. government authorizes nearly $60 million for the Palestinian Authority.  How about this: how about NOT giving them the money?  They use it to commit terrorist attacks on Israel, not for the betterment of their people.  Elsewhere, all hell is breaking out in Baghdad.  The U.S. and Iraqi forces are fighting terrorists and scumbags and are planning to construct a wall around the Sunni neighborhoods in the capital city seeing as how much of the terrorism is coming from the Shia majority.
  53. 2008 Thursday: In Kandahar, Afghanistan, a NATO convoy patrolling the area encounters suicide bombers driving a truck.  The resulting explosion kills at least 8 civilians on the road.
  54. 2009 Friday: Today is a bad day for tornadoes in the Deep South: at least 27 roar through several states claiming the lives of several people and leaving trails of devastation.  Global Warming?  Sure.  Definitely.  Good to get ahead of the leftists.
  55. 2010 Saturday: Bronislaw Komorowski becomes acting president of Poland after a plane carrying top Polish officials and President Lech Kaczynski crashes, leaving no survivors.  The aircraft crashed near Smolensk, Russia, and many people believe because he was an ardent critic of Russia that Putin may have had something to do with it.  Elsewhere, for the first time in 10 years, the Shroud of Turin goes on display.
  56. 2011 Sunday: Following a show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the band U 2’s[v] tour, 360 degrees, becomes the highest grossing music tour of all time.  Elsewhere, the People’s Republic of China reports its first trade deficit in six years blaming the rising costs of commodities.
  57. 2012 Tuesday: The American company Apple, Inc. announces it is worth over $600 billion dollars, making the technology company the largest in the world by market capitalization.  Meanwhile, in the GOP presidential primary race, Senator Rick Santorum suspends his candidacy on this date which leaves Gov. Mitt Romney the overwhelming favorite to win the nomination to contest Barack Hussein Obama for the White House.
  58. 2013 Wednesday: The United States, Jordan, and Canada boycott a meeting of the U.N. General Assembly organized by former Serbian foreign minister, Vuk Jeremic.  Meanwhile, tensions on the Korean Peninsula continue to rise as South Korea and the United States raise threat levels and the People’s Republic of China and North Korea clamp down on border crossings.  This is back when the PRC was sort of working with regional countries and the U.S. to contend with North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
  59. 2014 Thursday: The head of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, announces that his company will begin selling its luxury electric cars in China later this month.  Meanwhile, around Aleppo, Syria, home of ISIS, 88 people die and scores of others are injured when the Syrian air force drops a series of barrel bombs on the city.  This of course drives liberals loony tunes as they think the use of barrel bombs is somehow a horrible thing.  Look, killing people is a horrible thing, what difference does it make if barrel bombs do the killing or President Barack Hussein Obama indiscriminately drones people all over the world sans any type of trial?
  60. 2015 Friday: As ISIS continues spreading terror throughout the Middle East, jihadists in Baghdad carry out a suicide bombing killing several people and wounding loads of others.  It appears that President Barack Obama has no ideas as how to combat this evil scourge of jihad evil.  We say, “Neutron bomb.  Painless.  Simple.  Quick.  Cheap.”
  61. 2016 Sunday: Three bigwigs of the pro-Democracy movement in Hong Kong- Agnes Chow, Nathan Law, and Joseph Wong form a new political movement to fight for the freedom of their fellow Hong Kongese from communist China.  Meanwhile, as the international committee led by U.S. Secretary of State John F. (Flipping) Kerry tries to coerce Iran into making the ‘deal only if they agree to discuss their missile programs,’ Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif says ‘any discussion of his nation’s missile systems will NOT happen.’
  62. 2017 Monday: The 113th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, nominated by President Donald J. Trump, takes his place on the court on this date.  The swearing in ceremony took place at the White House.  Associate Justice would take the place of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia who died last year.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms detain a political activist from Taiwan, Lee Ming-che, claiming he endangered Chi-Com national security along with his wife.  
  63. 2018 Tuesday: So-called “Boy Wonder,” Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, begins testifying before the U.S. Congress regarding data harvesting, lack of privacy for the social media giant’s users, and misuse of said data.   Elsewhere, the Israeli government announces the findings of its investigation into the death of a jihadist on the other side of the Gaza border fence.  A sniper put the thug down- someone identified as a Hamas terrorist- with one shot which is ruled a ‘clean kill.’  However, the soldiers who filmed the incident and then celebrated it are told not to behave like that.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: On this date, one of the most amazing photos to come out of the Event Horizon Telescope depicts a BLACK HOLE in 2017 in galaxy M87, approximately 6.5 billion times the mass of Earth and about 55 million light years distant.  Absolutely amazing!  Elsewhere, anyone on Medicare in the United States has had salespeople calling them up, telling them they are ‘eligible for back braces for their pain.’  All one must do is to give their information to these scoundrels.  Well, the federal government charges 24 scumbags for Medicare fraud, not a good thing, because these people were pushing back braces to many who did not need them and billing the feds for $1.2 billion for not only the back braces but other durable equipment medical devices.
  65. 2020 Friday: China’s grand gift to the rest of the world, the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis continues claiming lives and ruining economies.  Currently, we have 1,699,632 confirmed cases of this hellacious disease what with 102,734 confirmed deaths and 376,330 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 502,876 confirmed cases what with 18,747 confirmed deaths and another 27,314 confirmed recoveries.   Around the world, pain, suffering, and death continue and it’s all because of two guilty culprits: communist China and the World Health Organization that continues to carry water for the communist nation.  President Trump informed the world today that the United States puts $500 million into the coffers of the corrupt organization every year while the People’s Republic of China puts in a measly $40-50 million per year yet the W.H.O. continues doing Beijing’s bidding.  This will have to change and the only way it will is when the United States returns to the Two-China Policy and recognizes Taiwan as a full member state of the U.N. and gives them back their seat on the Security Council.
  66. 2021 Saturday: Even though it’s the weekend, we know that communists and their flunkies in Washington, D.C. NEVER sleep.  Stick around to discover the truth with us.  Also, stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO released a less costly retrospective anthology of sorts on January 21, 2012, “The Chrysalis Years 1980-1986.”  This effort contains every piece of music the band recorded between 1980 and 1986.  You get all the tunes collected together on several CDS.  Some sites are charging an arm and a leg (perhaps two legs) for this collection but if you have some money to spend- seeing as how everyone may have received their Joe Biden PORKULUS checks, you will have enough cash to purchase this celebrated set and still have more money leftover than you did with yesterday’s offering.  Seek it out now and see if it’s right for you- you will be glad you did.

79. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 2021

GG. 1954 Saturday: at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, General Giap of the People’s Liberation Army has his sights set on drawing closer to the main French base but first, his troops would have to grab control of No Man’s Land which meant more trenches had to be dug to approach the various Huguettes west of the main airstrip. The French are still able to get some daredevil pilots to fly in, do quick drops and take some wounded out so the People’s Army has to stop this by taking control of the strip as best they can.

  49. 2003 Thursday: The United States, Great Britain, Australia, and Poland invade Iraq sans United Nations sanctions.  Airstrikes have already been crisscrossing the country and it appears that the Iraqis are unprepared to contend with this assault.  Little did the Coalition troops know that Saddam Hussein had a plan, a good plan.  Government forces disappear into the shadows and an insurrection fueled by religious extremism will blossom in it’s place.  That won’t happen for several months however…
  50. 2004 Saturday:  In Taiwan, despite being shot in the stomach by an unknown assailant, President Chen Shui-bian wins another term as president.  The results are close so his opponent decries the election as ‘unfair’ but the results hold firm.   Meanwhile, in the United States, millions of people in this country and across the world take to the streets protesting the first anniversary of the war in Iraq.  It started out well and everyone in Congress- including the Democrats- were onboard but as soon as it went south, everyone was all over President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney (especially him), and the administration.
  51. 2005 Sunday: In Fukuoka, Japan, the first major earthquake to hit in more than a century occurs killing one person and injuring numerous others which also causes massive evacuations.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrives in Beijing to meet with Chi-Com President Hu Jintao.

  53. 2007 Tuesday: Democrats continue screeching and whining about the Bush White House firing a bunch of federal attorneys.  President Bush agrees to permit White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers testify but NOT under oath.   Meanwhile, the French government signs an extradition treaty with communist China.  They will ONLY extradite people involved in DEATH PENALTY CASES and only if the communists agree not to condemn the individual to death.  Typical European thinking.
  54. 2008 Thursday: The communist Chinese are having a hell of time trying to quell the rising unrest in Tibet.  Well, go figure- the Chi-Coms are interlopers and Tibet is NOT their country yet they claim it, persecute their people, and are searching for the Dalai Lama as though he is a common criminal.   The Dalai Lama offers to meet with the Chi-Coms but in response they load up hundreds of military vehicles loaded with soldiers to crush the INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT.
  55. 2009 Friday: Somali pirates board their swift boats and take to the high seas attacking the Greek-flagged cargo ship, MV Titan. 
  56. 2010 Saturday: In Lebanon, the authorities arrest four of their citizens, accused of being recruited by the Mossad to spay on their fellow citizens.  As the authorities take them in, two manage to escape and make it into Israel.  Jerusalem remains mum on the incident.  Meanwhile, in Russia, people take to the streets to protest the policies of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin who continues erecting a Soviet-like police state block by block by block.
  57. 2011 Sunday: The Arab Spring continues: the people of Morocco turn out in the thousands to demand an end to corruption and civil rights for all citizens.  Bahrain is experiencing problems as is Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Libya.  Arabs across the Middle East are hopping mad with their governments and their governments are taken by surprise.  It will lead to a complete restructuring of much of the Middle East.   
  58. 2012 Tuesday: Violence continues to rage across Iraq with 50 people killed and another 240 plus injured as terrorists conduct suicide bombings, shootings, kidnappings, and other violence.  At least 10 cities are experiencing a wave of violence.  Elsewhere, Pope Benedict XVI appoints three new bishops for the United States- one in Baltimore, Maryland, the second in Tallahassee-Pensacola, Florida, and the third in Cheap Trick’s[v] home, Rockford, Illinois.
  59. 2013 Wednesday: Zillur Rahman, age 84, the president of Bangladesh, dies in office after a prolonged illness at a hospital in Singapore; the government declared three days of mourning.  Meanwhile, following the U.S. State Department’s comments on next month’s Venezuelan elections, Caracas cuts off a back-channel line of communications with Washington, D.C.  The Venezuelans would NEVER dream of holding corrupt or crooked elections not with Smartmatic Software and allegedly Dominion Voting Systems machines, allegedly.
  60. 2014 Thursday: Rising Asian demand for Champagne will represent increasing export growth, with Japan currently the fourth-largest export market after the U.K., the U.S. and Germany.   Meanwhile, the world is growing increasingly upset with the Russian occupation and annexation of the Crimea but there is nothing anyone will do to stop Vladimir Putin’s road to conquest.  Next, and even more perplexing, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, orders an investigation into HOW and even more important WHY the CIA ‘breached’ the U.S. Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence’s computers.[vi]  
  61. 2015 Friday: The creator of “Berry’s World,” cartoonist Jim Berry, dies at age 83.  Meanwhile, former Liberal Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Fraser (served 1975-83) dies at age 84.  Elsewhere, ISIS releases video of the executions of three Kurdish peshmerga soldiers and announces with glee that ‘there are going to be more from where those came.’  Savage sons of bitches, we need to radiate all of them.
  62. 2016 Sunday: President Barack Hussein Obama and his family arrive in Cuba for a three-day visit.  He was the first U.S. president to visit the island nation since 1928.  His visit, however, was the first by any American president since the island went communist in the 1950s so thank you, Mr. Obama, for being such a pro-Castro POS.
  63. 2017 Monday: The American psychotherapist who coined the term ‘homophobia’ dies at the age of 87.  We do not know if Dr. George Weinberg was himself a homosexual but he’s the one who crafted the term.  Meanwhile, confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia commence today.  Of course, liberals are hopping mad over the fact that their guy, Merrick Garland, never had a hearing but it is what it is.  Elsewhere, fired FBI Director James Comey is going to testify before the House Intelligence Committee today.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: Actress Cynthia Nixon from “Sex in the City” announces she will run for New York governor.  She would go down in flames to the dimwit Andrew Cuomo.  Meanwhile, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House.  Elsewhere, after allegations of rape and other sex crimes continue hammering Harvey Weinstein- close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton- the Weinstein Company files for Chapter 11 protections.
  65. 2019 Wednesday: According to the World Happiness Report, Finland is the happiest country on planet Earth while the South Sudan is the least-happiest nation.  Meanwhile, South Korean authorities arrest four scumbags for secretly filming at least 1,600 hotel guests doing the nasty and selling the footage to online Websites. Elsewhere, Disney forks out $71.3 billion to buy 21st Century Fox and all its individual parts.  Next, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras issues a ruling that HALTS oil and natural gas drilling in Wyoming.  The reason: climate change.   
  66. 2020 Friday: The Chinese Virus is sweeping across the world.  At first, health authorities- especially in the United States and Europe- were very dismissive of the Wuhan Flu whereas now, businesses are closing and a two-week mandatory order in the U.S. is enacted.  “Two weeks to flatten the curve and then life can return to normal” is the mantra.  People like the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci told us early on that masks were not important whereas now, everyone must wear them if they wish to journey out to the doctor or to big box stores.  Toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex and napkins have become a thing of the past.  The shelves of stores are being stripped clean with only foodstuffs people don’t like clinging to the shelves.
  67. 2021 Saturday: DAY 60 of the Biden Regime- stick around and find out what the fossilized Biden Regime, the Fake News Media, and the Chi-Coms are up to today- everyone knows it’s going to be good…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Michael Schenker- ever the musical gypsy- recorded his first album of covers, “Heavy Hitters,” which hit music store shelves on July 12, 2005.  Various musicians joined him for a handpicked set of 10 tunes ranging from Mountain to Cream to Black Sabbath to Pink Floyd as well as several other favorites.  This album offers the artist in a new realm of interpreting the musical works of other ‘heavy hitters,’ something that aroused his fans and brought in new ones, as well.  We hope you will visit whatever site it is you do when you seek out the best in rock music and pick it up- you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

Every illegitimate regime requires its scapegoats- what Jews were to Nazis, so white males are to the modern Democratic-Socialist Party

I think elected Republicans quickly learned just how seething angry we are. Almost immediately, Leader Kevin McCarthy began singing a different tune but no matter. Trump does not have to form a ‘third party,’ all he has to do is to call his ‘movement’ the ‘Democratic-Republican Party’ of old, one back in the early 19th century because his voters span across all party lines and designations and will never abandon him.

“Every illegitimate regime requires its scapegoats- what Jews were to Nazis, so white males are to the modern Democratic-Socialist Party” by Chef Charles Smithenstein, FMP

WINTER SESSION 2021

BLOG POST #3,739 AT THE AICP-END

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 652

ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES…

What’s done is done.  Now, we must fight…

Delano, CA 93216, 01-25-2021 Monday:  Good morning from the beautiful metropolis of Delano, California, a lovely place that once was the home to Cesar Chavez, an illegal alien-hating organizer of American farmworkers[i] and whose bust now proudly sits in the Oval Office alongside that of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Only, this Oval Office houses the usurper-in-chief, Joseph R. Biden, a man whose mental capacity seems diminished by the day, a man who requires and earbud with which to make him sound halfway competent, and a man whose own colleagues will most likely employ the 25th Amendment against him so as to complete the coup of the century: the overthrow of the United States federal government and the imposition of an unlawful one in its place, one controlled from afar, one controlled from…Beijing.[ii]   

Like my colleagues- at least the ones who supported and who continue to support President Donald J. Trump- I am shocked, as shocked as you are.  The reason for this shock is because there is NO WAY that Joe Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election. 

Sure, they TELL us he did but again, there is no way that this fossilized piece of wood beat a pro-American president who was saving our country from those who would destroy it, from those who would sell it out to the Chi-Coms for 30 pieces of silver, and from those who will now proceed in remaking it into something it was never intended to be: a socialist hellhole.[iii]

Personally, I never thought it would be as easy as banana cream pie to supplant a constitutional republic with an increasingly authoritarian regime that cares not about the immediate loss of millions of American jobs, increasing energy, food, and housing costs, and the imposition of a socialized system of healthcare, one that will pick and choose who receives and worse who will have to wait at the back of the queue until they’re beyond saving.[iv] 

Hell, Joe couldn’t even let stand President Trump’s XO that provided for lower prescription drug prices.  Why couldn’t you allow that one to stand?  You hate us this much?  It sure seems that way.  Then again, Joe Biden might not hate us at all, it’s the people surrounding him– the ones lurking in the shadows just outside the circle of lamp light, the ones pulling the strings and transforming our country into an appendage of Xi Jinping’s pinky finger.

I guess what shocks me most is how Republicans failed President Trump.  It is appallingly shocking to the point that the week following the election, as enemies of the 45th president on both sides of the aisle worked to complete the theft of the 2020 Presidential election, I thought about putting the barrel of my handgun to my temple and pulling the trigger.  It was that depressing that people in MY own party delivered the coup de grâce to the back of the head of Donald Trump, figuratively speaking.

Republicans in Georgia, Arizona, places that could have made things RIGHT in the election just as GOP-controlled legislatures in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and other states could have but chose to put up uninspiring fights instead.  Likewise, the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court- John Roberts- trembling in fear that the mob might show up outside his door screamed at Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel J. Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett, shouting, “NO!  NO!  NO!  I WILL NOT PERMIT IT” or so they say.[v]

I agree with my friend and colleague, Chef Brian, that the conspiracy does indeed run deep, something Chef Z mentioned, too, I believe.  Everyone who failed to do the RIGHT THING therefore conspired to do the WRONG THING- especially for the American people.  You Republicans will be responsible for fewer jobs, higher costs of everything, fewer businesses, a waste scape heretofore unseen in this country since perhaps the Great Depression.  

Yes, these Republicans who sided with the Democrats to do their (and the Chi-Coms) bidding, toppling the most successful, truly most popular, and patriotic president in God knows how long, deserve whatever is coming their way.  Like Chef Brian, I looked at my RNC renewal slip and openly mocked it, “YOU must be kidding me,” I roared, “There is NO WAY I will ever cast a vote for another Republican ever- I mean, David Valadao votes against Trump and for impeachment, a guy we just helped win back his seat?”[vi]

I think elected Republicans quickly learned just how seething angry we are.  Almost immediately, Leader Kevin McCarthy began singing a different tune but no matter.  Trump does not have to form a ‘third party,’ all he has to do is to call his ‘movement’ the ‘Democratic-Republican Party’ of old, one back in the early 19th century because his voters span across all party lines and designations and will never abandon him.[vii]

This week, I will lay out my thoughts on what I fear Joe Biden is going to do.  He will turn us against one another because as the Jews were to the Nazis, so, too, are the white males to the modern Democratic Party.  Every illegitimate movement or regime demands its own scapegoats and this fraudulent one is NO different.  The question is what are we, the American people going to do about it?[viii]   

We will discuss this throughout the week.

This is a cartoonish caricature of me, one created by up-and-coming Bakersfield street artist, Simone, one I am pleased to say looks ‘rather good.’  I have been in professional food service for a long, long time, moving into management back in 1973.  At the time, I was the Food and Beverage Director at one of the hotels in Bakersfield, CA, located on Union Avenue.  I was in my late thirties at the time.  I am still working at one of the local hotels in the nearby town of Delano, CA, a place that has been my home for the past 10 years.  Our city has experienced marvelous growth and is fast becoming a player in county politics.

ALBUM OF THE DAY @ THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF CULINARY POLITICS-THE ELEMENTAL NEWS OF THE DAY (NOTE YOU CAN’T FIND THEM VIA THE LINK BECAUSE OF GOOGLE’S SUNDAR PICHAI HIDING THEM BEHIND AN INTERSTITIAL TO PREVENT FREE SPEECH):

We continue offering CDs today by the greatest San Francisco bands of all time, the Jefferson Airplane or by one of its members. The band’s ninth album, “Sunfighter,” hit record store shelves in 1971 and was the second solo album by rhythm guitarist and vocalist, Paul Kantner, his partner Grace Slick and a bunch of San Francisco friends, which featured even more stellar musicians than the debut album.  We love this album as there is not a single tune that is filler or out of place and in fact, it is a superb album if one wants to recall the “good old days” of the psychedelic scene.  This is a great album and one every fan of the Airplane needs to own so please—go to Amazon.com and pick up this monumental recording now.

“Every illegitimate regime requires its scapegoats- what Jews were to Nazis, so white males are to the modern Democratic-Socialist Party” by Chef Charles Smithenstein, FMP

ENDNOTES:


[i] Say what you will about Cesar Chavez, the founder of the UFW, the man fought for American farmworkers and against illegal aliens.  Many wish his close friend and confidante Dolores Huerta felt the same way because she is as pro-illegal alien as a human being can come.  What I am saying is that Chavez was pro-American.  Farmers did not like him because he forced them to pay higher wages and to care for their workers but in hindsight, he was a great man so it’s clear to everyone that bumbling old Joe Biden has NO clue as to why he has a bust of Chavez in the Oval Office. Likewise, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a patriot, he fought on behalf of civil rights for everyone, NOT for a rebirth of segregation as modern-day dimwits now demand.  

[ii] When Nancy “Botox” Pelosi was talking about the 25th Amendment, we knew Biden’s days in office- IF HE WON (which no one knew he would at the time) would be numbered.   Joe Biden is just the tool with which to take power and then cast him aside.  Watch out, Joe, I hope your security people are protecting you.

[iii] What is shocking is how many people we have learned in government have ties to communist China.  What the hell has happened to our country?  What has happened to our longtime elected leaders:  We must enact term limits if we are able to reclaim our government from these people.

[iv] Folks, ‘death panels’ as Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska, said will determine who will and who won’t receive health care.  It’s a terrific way to reward loyal followers and to punish political enemies. It’s also a wonderful way by which a socialist society like the Nazis, the Chi-Coms, and others can eliminate what the Nazis termed ‘useless eaters,’ people who devoured resources while giving the greater society anything in return.  I mean, look at how places like the Empire State- under Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s watch- wiped out the old folks and the sick in the rest homes with the Chinese Virus- that’s evil but that’s what leftists do.  Hence, why many people who are Republicans are considering becoming Democrats- like me.

[v] IF this is true, this man cannot continue as the chief justice.  Many have been dissatisfied with him for a long time, and we wish he would go.  However, we have heard that he might attend the ‘impeachment trial’ of a now-private citizen.

[vi] People in our area of California- where we have both Kevin McCarthy and David Valadao- are angry with Valadao.  He lost two years ago to Democrat T.J. Cox and then after we fought to get him re-elected in 2020, he turns around and votes for the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.  I am telling you, Valadao may as well leave office and return home and stay with his milk cows.  Our anger towards HIM is NOT going away. 

[vii] In the early days of our country’s politics, there was a Democratic-Republican Party and Trump can form an impromptu party based upon that idea because he draws people from all sides of the political aisle.  I also agree with Chef Brian that Trump should become a Democrat- immediately.

[viii] The Nazis used the Jews extremely well just as the modern-day Democratic-Socialist Party’s reliance on racial politics is going to permit them to come after WHITE MALES and then WHITE WOMEN and then everyone else they deem to be exploitable for their disgusting brand of identity politics.
