Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney dismiss the unrest as miniscule. 
  61. 2009 Thursday: North Korea is up to its old tricks once again- they arrest two American journalists with Current TV- near the border with communist China.  Many believe the North Koreans went across the Yalu River and grabbed them up.  The North Koreans like kidnapping foreigners and holding them for ransom.  Ask the Japanese.
  62. 2010 Friday: Palestinians in Hebron, Israel, are running amok throwing rocks at Israeli security forces.  Light ‘em up.  In Sudan, Muslims are running amok there, too, killing at least 13 people in street riots.  Elsewhere, in the incredibly tolerant Islamic Republic of Iran, former Vice President Hossein Marashi finds himself in trouble with the law, accused of spreading propaganda.

  64. 2012 Monday: Wendy’s overtakes Burger King as the second most popular hamburger chain in the world.  Next, North Korea sends an invitation to the International Atomic Energy Agency- the IAEA- to come for a visit.  They would like them to come for some tea and perhaps check their nuclear facilities.

  71. 2019 Tuesday: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that the federal government can detain illegal aliens with criminal records indefinitely.  The liberal illegal-loving Democrats go berserk.  Meanwhile, President Donald J.

Bernie Sanders has left the race, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii becomes the 25th official Democrat candidate to announce she is leaving the race.  She entered the fight on January 11, 2019, and even said she would not seek another term in Congress.  We will see if she honors her pledge.  On Wall Street, NASDAQ closes up 160.73 points, +2.30% at 7,150.58; the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes up 188.27 points, +0.95% at 20.087.19; and the S & P 500 closes up 11.29 points, +0.47% at 2,409.39.  In California, Governor Gavin Newsom orders that as of midnight, all non-essential Californians must remain in their homes under self-quarantine, yet NO one talks about rounding up illegal aliens and deporting them or interning the homeless and giving them treatment.   COVID-19 Statistics: around the globe, there are 245,622 confirmed cases with 10,051 deaths and 88,450 recoveries.  Italy has passed China in deaths with 3,405 (so much for hugging a Chinaman) while Beijing reports 3,248 deaths.  Elsewhere, Iran reports 1,284 deaths, Spain 833, France 372, the United States 218, the United Kingdom 144, South Korea 94, Belgium 21, and on and on it goes.
  73. 2021 Friday: Day 59 of the Biden Administration.  JOE BIDEN NEWS- First, there is a great deal of consternation among the American people over Joe Biden falling not once, not twice, but three times as he attempted to hustle up the stairs to Air Force One.  When he made it to the top, he made a good show of it by giving a wave, but former President Gerald R. Ford only fell down the stairs of Air Force One ONCE.   No wonder Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to debate Joe Biden publicly.[iv]   Next, while Democrats may promote the benefits of marijuana for everyone (so they can tax the hell out of it), apparently the Joe Biden White House does not approve of its use among staffers.  An unnamed number of staffers have been terminated for past usage as well as present usage.  Watch that CBD oil, folks.
  74. 2021 Friday A: GOVERNOR ANDREW “KILLER” CUOMO NEWS- Things continue going from bad to worse for the so-called “Lov Gov” as the New Yorker publishes a ribald tale in which the governor is alleged to have said about a female staffer that he’s like to ‘mount her like a dog.’  Bow wow.  Folks, when stories like this come out, you know your time as a public official has ended, it’s over, no mas, kaput, rode hard and put away wet.   Amidst all these allegations, the Lov Gov’s approval ratings have collapsed to 39-percent.  Next, a Quinnipiac poll says that ‘New Yorkers want to see Cuomo go, just not right now.’  Most believe he is a dead man walking in next year’s election, so they want the hypersexual governor to remain just where he’s at.  Speaking of the 2022 Mid-Term, only 25-percent say they will vote for him again whereas a whopping 66-percent say he must go.
  75. 2021 Friday B: FOREIGN POLICY/OVERSEAS NEWS- the American people are shocked at how the representatives of the People’s Republic of China disrespected representatives of the Biden administration, most notably, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.[v]  The communists Chinese told the Biden administration they ‘have no room to lecture them about human rights abuses when black lives seemingly DON’T matter in the United States.’  Of course, like former U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry allowed the Iranians to abuse him in public on innumerable occasions, so, too, did the Chi-Coms abuse Secretary Blinken.  The Chi-Coms told Blinken, Sullivan, and others in attendance that the ‘United States is NOT approaching the talks from a position of power.’  Our power is evaporating now that Donald Trump is no longer President Trump.[vi] 
  76. 2021 Friday C: In other Chi-Com related news, the U.S. House of Representatives manages to squash an effort by the Republican minority to have Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell removed from the House Intelligence Committee seeking as how he had a lengthy sexual affair with Ministry of State Security secret agent Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, which only recently ended.[vii]  In other foreign news, the U.S. House blasts the military junta in Myanmar demanding they free their detainees.
  77. 2021 Friday D: ILLEGAL ALIEN AND BORDER NEWS- the House Democrats pass an ‘immigration bill’ by a vote of 228-197 that will provide millions of illegal aliens with a pathway to citizenship.  This includes DREAMers, farm workers, and anyone expelled under the Trump administration.[viii]  Instead of re-establishing the old Bracero Program by which temporary workers could enter and exit the United States, the Democrats want the entire Third World to flood into the United States.   Next, the Department of Homeland Security acknowledges that it’s spreading COVID-19 infected illegal aliens across the country.  Meanwhile, Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee are demanding that chairperson Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, D-TX 18th congressional district, to  hold hearings on the BORDER CRISIS.  (Note- she won’t).   Elsewhere, Texas Governor Greg Abbot acknowledges problems in Customs and Border Patrol holding pens for illegal aliens in that COVID-19 is running amok and problems with the water systems are rising.   Not good.  Finally, the Customs and Border Patrol is seeking help with air transport to send illegal aliens along the Canadian border so CBP officers up there can process all these frigging illegal aliens.  WTF!
  78. 2021 Friday E: U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE AND SENATE NEWS- At least 73 House Democrats have signed a petition demanding House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi expel Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, from Congress.  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi is still trying to STEAL the certified election from Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district.[ix]  Why aren’t more Republicans standing up to the old bag and telling her to stop this sort of behavior?  Enough is enough!  Elsewhere, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that ‘the Equality Act does nothing for equality for women.’  Next, never-to-be-outdone, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, D-MA, says that ‘the filibuster is a relic from the Jim Crow era.’[x]  Moving on, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY 14th congressional district, says that ‘challenging “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer would be a lot to put on one person.’  Finally, Senate Democrats say that IF they fail to push through ‘filibuster reform,’ they will be facing ARMAGEDDON in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.’
  79. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- a father in British Columbia underwent arrest for defying a court order.  What was the court order, you ask?  He was speaking about his daughter’s transition from being a girl to being a freak, uh,  we mean ‘boy.’  Excuse us for living.  The father had no clue what was going on and that his wife was aiding the mixed-up kid to become a person of the opposite gender.  The Canadian courts ordered him not to publicly comment on the matter but as a concerned parent, he felt he had no choice other than to express his feelings publicly since the government did not seem to give a dump.  Welcome to the modern world.   In other news, a wax museum in San Antonio, Texas, had to remove a wax effigy of President Donald J. Trump because dimwitted leftists were walking up and punching it in the face.  Put those scumbags in prison.   Speaking of the former president, a man was arrested by the Secret Service for threatening the 45th president as well as other government officials.  
  80. 2021 Friday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- Following Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the person formerly-known-as-Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, Britney Spears is considering doing a similar interview.  Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth says she is ‘not mad at Harry and Meghan, just saddened by their interview’ as are we.  Talk about a pair of ingrates.  Wow.  Never seen anything like it.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden addresses the matter of ‘his dog’ Major’s biting incident of a White House staffer but we learned nothing new about the matter.  Go figure.   Next, the judge in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd agrees that some evidence from Floyd’s 2019 arrest can be heard in the present trial.  Finally, automaker Ford Motor Co. is building ‘computerless trucks’ sans chips due to a shortage of microchips.
  81. 2021 Friday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III- Facebook says it’s going to create a kid-friendly form of Instagram.  Meanwhile, as House Democrats seek to remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from the body, Twitter suspends her for a brief period before admitting some sort of glitch did it.  She’s back on the social media site.  
  82. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 NEWS- Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, tore the AMAZING Dr. Anthony Fauci to shreds during their meeting yesterday in the U.S. Senate.  The junior senator from Kentucky slammed the guy for politicizing the virus by saying ‘fully vaccinated people do not have to wear masks so why, Dr. Fauci, are you out there prancing around saying we should continue wearing not one mask but at least two for the next TWO flipping years?’  The AMAZING Dr. Fauci tried to give as good as he was getting but the little wimp was getting pummeled.  The only thing that saved this phony was the senator’s time ran out and it was time to move to another lawmaker.   Next, a COVID-19 scientist involved in the vaccines says the next step is working on a cure for cancer. Speaking of the old Chi-Vi, the Centers for Disease Control reduces the social distancing for reopening schools.  Rather than six feet, the distance is now three feet.  Anything to do with Dr. Fauci getting his clock cleaned?  You be the judge.  Finally, Joe Biden is promoting a COVID-19 Hate Crimes bill following the Massage Parlor Massacres in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 16.  Even though the perp says he did not go there to kill Asians, Democrats continue braying like the left-wing sheeple they are that it was an ANTI-ASIAN HATE CRIME.  We’ve already addressed that bogus POS in the past couple of days. 
  83. 2021 Friday J: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 121,882,440 confirmed cases, +297,052, 2,692,806, confirmed deaths, +7,036, and 69,033,271 confirmed recoveries, +144,348.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,905,513 confirmed cases, up 58,699 from yesterday’s reporting, 545,131 confirmed deaths, UP 1,650, and 116,597,906 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 216,654 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- El Presidente, in another two-and-a-half weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    
  84. 2021 Friday K: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,635,718 confirmed cases, 57,278 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for about two weeks now- what the heck is going on?).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 355,396 confirmed cases, 5,225 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., the state of Vermont, aka the Green Mountain State: currently, they have 17,393 confirmed cases, 217 confirmed deaths, and 14,646 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 825,562 confirmed cases, 6,069 confirmed deaths, and 798,096 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Belgium, the home of Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness”- 822,801 cases of the ‘VID, 22,624 confirmed deaths but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

  86. 2021 Friday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.875 per gallon, $3.586 in Hawaii, and $3.310 in Washington state.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,077,515,205,309 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  More spending yet to come.  Question: are the Democrats putting our country into debt servitude?  It is beginning to look that way.
  87. 2021 Friday N: EVENING UPDATES- Foreign News- Houthi rebel drone strikes once again have caused problems for the Saudis as six drones flew in and hit the Aramco facility in Riyadh.  Although they didn’t cause much damage, they still caused enough by causing some fires.  However, oil production was not interrupted.   Next, after the European Medicines Agency evaluated the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, they decided that the benefits far outweigh the risks and thus countries across Europe are back to using it to protect their citizens. 
  88. 2021 Friday O: Ex-con Michael Cohen, former personal attorney for President Donald J. Trump met with New York City D.A. Cyrus Vance, Jr., for the eighth time today.  Vance is trying to engineer a charge with which, he can ‘get’ Donald Trump.  He wants to know if the 45th president exaggerated the value of his real estate investments so he could get much more favorable loans from his bankers.  Stay tuned for further details (although we think Vance is tapping a dry hole).  We shall see.  In other news, apparently the quarterback of the Houston Texans, Deshaun Watson, is being accused by numerous spa employees for behaving in a sexually lewd and aggressive manner, something he wholeheartedly denies.  Poor guy must be a Republican because seldom does anyone go after a Democrat for such matters unless, of course, they are unlikable scumbags such as Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, former Senator Al Sharpton, and former Congressman John Conyers.  Then, one is fair game.  Finally, the feds are charging some Proud Boys leaders for their roles in the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.
  89. 2021 Friday P: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1643 with a $105 million jackpot on the line tonight.  Here we go: 09, 14, 40, 59, 68, and Mega 08. In a very strange event, there were NO winners in California although across the country, there were 08.

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

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

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

[iv] So far, the Biden administration has not answered Vladimir Putin’s challenge.

[v] We suspect that this will be the final time in which, Chi-Com officials meet with Biden administration officials on U.S. soil; no, from here on out, all meetings will be held in communist China and every visiting American diplomat will be undergoing the now-infamous anal swabs.  Serves them right.

[vi] The Biden administration is in such dire straits that we expect to see the Chi-Coms finish the job in Hong Kong, that the gates of landing craft will soon be hitting the wet sand on Taiwan’s beaches, that the Russians will make additional moves to re-establish the old Soviet Union, that the Iranians will incorporate Iraq and intimidate the rest of the Middle East, and that Kim Jong Un will begin firing a barrage of ballistic missiles into South Korea.  Who is going to stop these bad actors?  Certainly not an enfeebled old Joe Biden and a politicized Pentagon.  We’re toast, folks.  I guess we will salute the new world order.

[vii] It only ended because her cover was blown, and she had to scurry back to the PRC.  We suspect this poor girl must shower every time she has the displeasure of thinking about Congressman Swalwell.  Poor thing.  It sucks to feel sorry for a Chi-Com intelligence agent more so than a fellow American, but Swalwell is an embarrassment to the entire country.

[viii] At least 3 million illegal aliens will be legalized immediately, and taxpayer dollars will be used to import millions more illegal aliens. 

[ix] Election results were counted at least 3 times and each time they were counted, Miller-Meeks beat Democratic Party challenger Rita Hart.  Rita Hart ran to Speaker Pelosi blubbering and crying ‘she was robbed’ so now “Mumbles” Pelosi is seeking to STEAL the election away from Miller-Meeks and give it to crybaby Hart.

[x] It’s no surprise she doesn’t know what she is talking about.  The filibuster exists to protect the rights of the minority and the Democrats have used it repeatedly to protect them when they are in the minority (which may never happen again, thanks to H.R. 1).

22. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 2022

2005 Saturday: Following the filing against him of war crimes charges resulting from U.S. actions in the Iraq War, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld cancels an appearance in Germany, the country where the charges were filed. This also follows a report from the Washington Post regarding a clandestine organization within the Pentagon that allows the U.S. military to skirt cooperation with the Central Intelligence Agency, and which is under direct control of Secretary Rumsfeld. Known as the Strategic Support Branch, it allows military intelligence to do whatever they have to do to ‘question’ jihadist suspects. In some circles, we call this “TORTURE.”

  29. 1944 Saturday: On the Eastern Front in the Ukraine with colder than usual weather, the Soviets are building a massive force with which to begin reducing the German troops trapped within the Cherkassy pocket.   The Russians believe they have 11 divisions comprising 85,000 men whereas the Germans only had six puffed up to look like a larger number.  In reality, they had about 56,000 troops.

  53. 2004 Thursday: The Democratic Party goes before the microphone banks and accuses the Republican Party of having its operatives hack into DNC computers.  Didn’t they accuse President Richard M. Nixon’s people of doing the exact same thing?  Uh, yeah, the tune sounds familiar.

  55. 2006 Sunday: Following two explosions along Russian pipelines running through North Ossetia, Moscow cuts off supplies of natural gas to Georgia and Armenia, two countries it is secretly trying to manipulate into doing its bidding and preventing them from cozying up to the West.
  56. 2007 Monday: The much-beloved religion of peace- Islam (which ain’t no ‘religion of peace’) sees death and destruction across the cities of Baghdad and Baquoba as more than 100 people are killed and God knows how many injured.  This is the result of President George W. Bush’s unnecessary invasion of this country.
  57. 2008 Tuesday: As the 2008 Presidential Primaries continue, former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson, R-TN, announces he is withdrawing from the race.  Meanwhile, India is having problems what with the bird flu- H5N1- running amok through parts of their country.  Everyone secretly suspects that the bird flu is yet another escapee out of communist China which just so happens to be right next door to the world’s largest democracy.
  58. 2009 Thursday: President Barack Hussein Obama goes before the microphone banks and promises that within ONE YEAR from today, he will close down the POW camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and will bring the Islamist scum held there to the United States to stand trial in federal court.  He also pledges to his eager listeners that the U.S. will NO longer torture its enemies.  (Note- we shall see).  In other news, Microsoft announces it will slash 5,000 jobs as the demand for desktop computers has dropped dramatically. 
  59. 2010 Friday: Thousands of Venezuelans protest for and against Hugo Chavez’s policies regarding energy shortages and currency revaluation.  Elsewhere, even though President Barack Hussein Obama promised that he would close down Guantanamo Bay, Cuba’s POW camp for Islamist terrorists on Day No. 1, the BBC reports that a U.S. Justice Department task force recommends that 47 of the scumbags held there should be held ‘indefinitely.’  (How about this: SHOOT THEM).  
  60. 2011 Saturday: In his second to his final bout, former heavyweight champion Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield saw his pro record go to 43-4-2 with a NO CONTEST in the 3rd round of a scheduled 12-round bout when he suffered an accidental head gash in the WBF title bout with opponent Sherman Williams.   Elsewhere, in Belarus, following the swearing in of new President Alexander Lukashenko, his goons then go out and begin arresting members of the opposition.
  61. 2012 Sunday: We learned that yesterday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich won the South Carolina primary with 40-percent of the vote.   Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney who came in second with 28-percent of the vote in the state that began the American Civil War whines that ‘Newt is using weapons of the left’ to be his fellow Republicans in the primary and that ‘they will come back around on him and them.’  Elsewhere, video of Congressman Ron Paul speaking in front of a Confederate flag arises which brings condemnation on the Republican from Texas.  Oh, boohoo.
  62. 2013 Tuesday: Chinese researchers discover an ancient human fossil in a cave near Beijing; the 40,000-year-old leg bone shows that it was related to present-day Asians and Native Americans, thus the Chi-Coms would have us believe that they have a claim to North America.  Let’s nuke these SOBs.  
  63. 2014 Wednesday: The European Space Agency researchers detect water vapor on the minor planet Ceres, the largest asteroid and only dwarf planet within the inner Solar System, an utterly amazing find.  Elsewhere, a rare, blue, 29.6-carat diamond, one of the most exceptional ever mined at the Cullinan mine, is discovered about 25 miles northeast of Pretoria, South Africa.
  64. 2015 Thursday: The European Central Bank announces that it is going to follow the same crackpot economic policies of the United States by going to ‘quantitative easing,’ where it is going to print (worthless) Euros with which to purchase government-issued debt instruments.  The Europeans hope that is going to improve the crumbling economy within the Eurozone but all they need do is to look at Barack Obama’s America—disasters loom ahead for the Europeans.  Elsewhere, both the president and prime minister of Yemen resign their offices following the storming of the presidential palace the day prior.
  65. 2016 Friday: Following the horrid Paris terrorist attacks of 2015, the U.S. strengthens its visa entry requirements in the hope of preventing similar attacks from occurring in the U.S.  All visitors from Japan, Europe, and Australia who have visited Iran, Iraq, Syria, or Sudan in the past five years to obtain NEW visas or be turned away.
  66. 2017 Sunday: In the NFC Championship Game, the Atlanta Falcons destroy the Green Bay Packers, 44-21—and move onto Super Bowl LI.  Meanwhile, in the AFC Championship Game, the New England Patriots move onto Super Bowl LI after demolishing the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 36-17.  For the Falcons, it will be only their second super bowl appearance in franchise history while for the Patriots in the Belichick-Brady Era it will be their seventh appearance.   Elsewhere- in Herefordshire, England- longtime bassist with the British rock bands, Mott the Hoople, Mott, and the British Lions[v]– Peter “Overend” Watts lost his battle with throat cancer on this date.  The legendary bassist was 69 years old.
  67. 2018 Monday: The United States- to the shock of millions of Palestinian-lovers- announces that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel.  Anti-Semites go nuts across the U.S. and around the world.   In a speech before the Knesset, Vice President Mike Pence says it will become official in early 2019 with the opening of a brand-new embassy.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate strikes a deal to keep the government open until February 8 by which time they hope to have a funding bill passed.
  68. 2019 Tuesday: As the now-infamous government shutdown continues to drag on, various federal government agencies lament as to ‘how bad’ things are going to become if funding does not immediately begin flowing into their flaccid agencies.   In the U.S. Senate, senators debate competing funding bills.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court greenlights President Donald J. Trump’s requested ban of transgender servicemembers.  Down in Venezuela, people are getting killed as anti-government protests continue ramping up and the illegal government of strongman Nicolas Maduro sends loyal troops out into the streets to beat the people back into line.
  69. 2020 Wednesday: Communist Chinese health authorities seal off the entire city of Wuhan, China, as COVID-19 cases begin exploding across the city.  It’s too late as the disease is hopscotching around the planet.  Elsewhere, following an argument outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Seattle, Washington, eight people suffer gunshot wounds with one dead.  Meanwhile, in the U.S. Senate, opening arguments in Washington, D.C. in the FIRST IMPEACHMENT TRIAL of President Donald J. Trump get underway.  Finally, the Oakland Raiders make it official: they are now the Las Vegas Raiders. 
  70. 2021 Friday:  As confirmation hearings for ‘President’ Joe Biden’s Cabinet continues, Little Mayor Pete Buttigieg, up for secretary of Transportation, when asked about the immediate loss of 10,000-to-11,000 high-paying jobs for those engaged in constructing the Keystone XL Pipeline, evades the question by saying, ‘we’ll find them other jobs.’  Pete, you gonna teach them to CODE?  Meanwhile, with the bust of Winston Churchill banished from the Oval Office back to the basement again, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, and other senators want the POW/MIA flag returned to the White House.  What’s up, “Beijing Biden?”  Speaking of the usurper ‘President’ Joe Biden, he orders U.S. intelligence agencies to turn their vision INWARD to root out white supremacists, white militia members, and others now deemed to be enemies of the state.  (Note- Chef Charles says white males are to Democrats what Jews were to Nazis.  Read his post on Monday).  Next, critics of the executive order on trannys participating in sports opposite their biological sex is the “erasure of women.”  It once was Democrats once loved women whereas now, not so much.  They love illegal aliens and perversion more.
  71. 2021 Friday A: After massive outrage occurred over Tweeted videos of U.S. National Guard members sleeping in a parking garage in Washington, D.C., surfaced- in 32-degree and colder weather- First Lady Jill Biden went down there for photo ops, kissed, and made nice, and allowed them to return to the Capitol Building.  They were sent to the parking garage once their photo purpose was over- making it appear that the Capitol and the Inauguration was imminent threat of attack by Trump supporters because Democrats have NO LOVE for the American military.  Hence why Governors Greg Abbott, Texas, and Ron DeSantis, Florida, are calling their guard members home or vowing never to send them again.  Excellent.
  72. 2021 Friday B: Pressure is mounting on ‘President’ Joe Biden NOT to hire BIG TECH hacks to flesh out his White House communications department.  Meanwhile, Google is threatening to strip its search engine from Australia (there’s Mozilla, Opera, Bing, Safari, among others) because of a bill there that will charge Google for its news feeds.  BIG TECH trying to crush people and countries again yet loves the Chi-Coms.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Bloomberg News says it might be ‘difficult’ to ban Fox News Channel and Newsmax.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way, you frigging fascists.  Meanwhile, Google is shuttering Loon, an alternative to cellphone towers using balloons.
  73. 2021 Friday C: “Hammering Hank” Aaron baseball great received the COVID-19 vaccine as a way of encouraging fellow black folks to get the vaccine back on January 5.  On January 22, he is dead at age 86.  Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says there is NO way her or her family is getting the vaccine because when white liberals encourage black folks to do something, it never works out good for them.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. Tony Fauci, a guy who’s all over the ballpark and not in a clever way says, he thinks we are plateauing out now what with ‘Usurper Joe’ Biden as our president.  Simultaneously, Great Britain says their variant of the Chi-Vi is not only more contagious but also more deadly.  Wow.   
  74. 2021 Friday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden is pushing stopgap measures while he tries to get Congress onboard with his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, a plan that will be funded with Chi-Com cash. In a sign of an ‘improving Biden economy,’ the ‘46th president’ is pushing for more food stamps like his former boss, Barack Obama, did back during the eight years of Obama-Biden.  Things were so good back then; food stamp usage was at an all-time historic high.  Guess we are returning to the GOOD OLD DAYS.  Likewise, he is pushing his $15 minimum wage increase for all federal workers which also is going to harm the economy.  In other interesting economic/labor news, Amazon.com is demanding IN-PERSON voting in the union vote in COVID-19-afflicted Alabama.  Amazon wants ‘in-person voting’ but in the 2020 Presidential Election, we couldn’t have ‘in person’ voting?  Tells you all you need to know: “86 46.”
  75. 2021 Friday E: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, and Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell plan to get the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump underway and soon.  However, constitutional scholars say you CANNOT impeach a former president.  I guess we shall see.  Former White House economic adviser Peter Navarro says you ‘forget unity’ if this bogus sham moves forward.   Speaking of impeachment, freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green- the famed MTG- has put forth articles of impeachment for the ‘46th president’ over his close ties to the Chi-Coms who are celebrating the NEW ‘Biden administration’ and the departure of Donald J. Trump.  It tells you all you need to know.  Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, also says ‘President’ Joe Biden should immediately nix the bogus impeachment of the out-of-office 45th president.  We concur.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Upon orders from ‘President’ Joe Biden, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers halts construction on the southern border wall.  There goes more interconnected jobs.   Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas says ‘President’ Joe Biden must reconsider stoppage of the Keystone XL Pipeline project.  He won’t.  Moving on, a unanimous vote puts Janet Yellen in as secretary of the U.S. Treasury while a nearly unanimous votes makes U.S. Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, Ret., as the new 28th secretary of Defense.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense David Norquist stepped down on this date.  He served from January 20 until today.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Twitter finally cancels the scumbag ayatollah of Iran for calling death and destruction down upon Donald Trump.  What took you so long?   Speaking of former President Trump, his banks move to cancel him and his banking accounts.  Wow.  This is America?  Meanwhile, the Kremlin welcomes the ‘Biden administration’s’ return to extend the Open Skies Treaty between the U.S. and Russia but would like to see the details.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are importing ‘doctored oil’ from Venezuela so as to sneak it past inspectors seeking to clamp down on oil imports from the totalitarian hellhole.  Elsewhere, in other interesting news, the city of Chicago has already experienced 1,125 violent carjackings just this year.  Who the hell wants to visit the Windy City?
  78. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 97,973,544 confirmed cases, +717,789, 2,101,894, confirmed deaths, +17,882, and 54,008,728 confirmed recoveries (lower than reported last week), +419,939.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 24,973,544 confirmed cases, up 477,526 from yesterday’s reporting, 415,653 confirmed deaths, UP 9,463, and 10,913,397 confirmed recoveries, UP 351,315.
  79. 2021 Friday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,115,704 confirmed cases, 35,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (this number has not changed in a week), 328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 300,420 confirmed cases, 4,131 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New Hampshire: currently, they have 60,294 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and 53,128 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 582,869 confirmed cases, 4,245 confirmed deaths, and 497,578 confirmed recoveries.   
  80. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 88,701 cases, +247, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and 82,468 confirmed recoveries, +36.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Rat-eating scum.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Amazon.com is offering to help the ‘Biden administration’ with distribution of the now-questionable vaccines.  They could have aided the previous president but nope, no flipping way.
  81. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,996.98, DOWN 179.03 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,543.06, UP 12.15 points (+0.09%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,841.47, DOWN 11.60 points (-0.30%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.50 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.56 per troy ounce, +0.009 (+0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,109.10 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.0065 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,365.20 per troy oz, -9.90 (-0.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $51.98 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.55%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000030 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.15 Russian rubles.   In other economic news, U.S. house sales of existing homes hits its highest mark back in 2006 at an 0.22-percent increase due to a slowdown in new home construction.  However, we fear that unless the government provides aid to landlords, the Chi-Coms will become the de facto landowner in the U.S. via using strawman companies to snap up all available real estate.  We cannot permit something as outrageous as this EVER to happen.
  82. 2021 Friday L: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions draw what with a $999 million jackpot up for grabs.  Okay, here’s the numbers for Draw #1627 with NO BIG WINNER(S): 04, 26, 42, 50, 60, and Mega 24.  Out of 1,082,353 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,036 apiece.  UPDATE- although the California Lottery website shows the Mega Millions pot is now $20 million, it still is not showing that someone actually WON the pot, estimated to be $1.1 billion.  News media is reporting a sole winner in Michigan so we will update when we possess the information.  FINAL UPDATE: one person won in Michigan won the big pot worth $1.01 billion.  Congratulations.
  83. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 16, 2007, Sandy Denny’s label released a concise package from the “Live at the BBC” Box Set that came out three days earlier, also called “Live at the BBC.”  This one contained the unreleased tracks augmented with some others so fans who had much of her earlier BBC recordings could latch onto these for a lesser price than the big box.  We are not saying that the box set is not worth it because it most assuredly is, but this is also a good addition because you get some tunes you had no clue ever existed.  We hope you will visit Amazon.com, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, or any other place you shop for the absolute best in music and consider making it a part of your listening day- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

278. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, OCTOBER 05, 2021

22. 1944 Thursday: The air war continues to rage over Berlin as RAF bombers appear over the capital at night while the U.S. Army Air Force conducts daylight bombings. Antiaircraft fire coursing into the sky from the infamous flak towers in the middle of the city account for many of the planes blasted out of the skies while the Luftwaffe gets credit for numerous others. Still, every bomb dropped is a moral victory for the Allies as Hitler and Joseph Goebbels said, “NO Allied bombs would ever fall on the mighty city.”

Trump did away with this phony POS deal that would make the United States one of 12 nations instead of a major player.
  49. 2016 Wednesday:  As Hurricane Matthew approaches the United States, the authorities urge 2 million people in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida to evacuate as the Cat 4 storm has already killed people in the Caribbean.  Meanwhile, the FBI announces that in August, they arrested a former NSA contractor who worked for Booz Allen Hamilton.  Harold Martin is charged with unlawful removal and retention of governmental documents.  No one knows if he handed the information over to foreign entities or governments.  The investigation continues…

  53. 2020 Monday:  Following President Donald J. Trump’s roundabout the Walter Reed Medical Center (where doctors are treating him for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu) yesterday, liberals continue wailing and groaning like banshees about his ‘lack of concern for the welfare of others.’  He drove around the block in a hermetically sealed vehicle with Secret Service agents wearing the recommended garb.  He wanted to thank his well-wishers. In New York City, Trump supporters took over 5th Avenue and blasted their support for the ailing president.  Didn’t moronic Governor Andrew Cuomo claim that ‘Trump would need an army if he wanted to show his face in New York?’  Well, there’s your army, you frigging dimwit. C’ est la vie.  Meanwhile, the Presidential Debate Commission is recommending that all participants and guests wear masks at all subsequent debates.  Elsewhere, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announces that she, too, has tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  What is going on?  Who seeded the White House with the Chinese Virus?  Look to the kitchens, investigators, look to the kitchens… Finally, Anthony Scaramucci says that since Trump is sick, he ‘should drop out of the race.’  F-off Mooch!

Trump has made us energy independent and that our environment is cleaner now than it was when he assumed office.   
  55. 2020 Monday B: Regarding the Chi-Vi, Ireland says it may enact a second Wuhan Virus shutdown due to rising numbers, 110 per 100,000 citizens.  In New York City, Mayor Bill Di Blasio says he ‘is going to shutdown specific sections of the city where Bat Virus cases are rising,’ neighborhoods that are mostly Jewish.  Say what, Mr. anti-Semitic mayor?  
  56. 2020 Monday C: At 6:39 P.M. President Donald J. Trump walked out the front door of Walter Reed Medical Center.  Although not entirely out of the woods yet as his doctors said, he is on the mend and will be closely watched by physicians at the White House.   Self-proclaimed ‘conservative,’ and Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, says via Tweet that taxpayer dollars should no longer go to funding the Walter Reed Medical Center and that Maryland should pull the medical license of Trump’s treating Dr. Sean Conley.  And these people claim to be ‘balanced.’

TRUMP COVID-19 DEATHS- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 410,642 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop him.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump with 6,564 Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths.  Congratulations, Joe, YOU are IT from this point forward and will be for the rest of your illegitimate time in office.

  65. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.414 per gallon, $3.047 in Florida, $4.101 in Hawaii, and $3.846 in Washington state.[xii]    Let us look at one other New Hampshire: $3.050.  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 second LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Iran: $0.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,842,422,397,228 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiv]  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 Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  66. 2021 Tuesday F: AFGHANISTAN CRISIS AND COLLAPSE NEWS- We learned today that following the vaccination of 50,000 Afghans in Afghanistan, the Biden regime is going to restart evacuation flights out of HKIA, people we know little to nothing about but whom the Biden regime wants to seed across the United States.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.  Speaking of the Afghan debacle, Republican senators are demanding a probe into the disastrous Afghan evacuations and resulting carnage at Hamid Karzai International Airport.
  67. 2021 Tuesday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- The state of Texas is gearing up for a possible surge of 60,000 illegals in the coming weeks.  Deploy troops to the border and begin shooting them.  A few thousand dollars’ worth of lead will do more than giving Central American nations and Mexico billions of dollars to halt the crisis.  We also must note that today marks Day No. 194 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the mess on the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 101 since her sole visit to the border to do her job.  Where can we find NO SHOW jobs like the one, she has?
  68. 2021 Tuesday H: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS I- U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken arrived in France today to soothe over France’s hurt feelings over the loss of its $40 billion submarine deal with Australia.  Meanwhile, not to be outdone by the North Koreans, Russia test-fires its new hypersonic missiles, missiles the United States cannot stop.
  69. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION I- We learn today that Pfizer’s Chi-Vi vaccine loses 50-percent efficacy after six months which is why there is a BIG PUSH for perpetual boosters.  We also learned today that ahead of the Xi Jinping Never-Ending Pandemic, the Chi-Coms loaded up on polymerase chain reaction, aka PCR, tests because the communist government knew what was coming down the pike.  Next, a court rules that Arizona cannot apply federal COVID-19 funds to fund ‘anti-mask grants.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday J: HEALTH AND MEDICAL ALERTS- Ahead of next year’s coming retribution against the Democrats in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections, NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins is going to retire at the end of the year.  Many speculate he is doing this so he can avoid being dragged before Congress and forced to answer questions regarding how the Wuhan Institute of Virology received tens of billions of U.S. taxpayer monies to fund ‘gain of function research.’  We hope you won’t get away.  In other oppressive Biden regime-related news regarding the Chi-Vi, the U.S. military is ignoring requests for religious and/or medical exceptions for the vaccines being forced atop U.S. servicemembers.  Stand strong, fellow Americans, stand strong.
  71. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- Kaiser Permanente today suspended 5,000 employees for refusing to undergo vaccination with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu inoculations.  Shame.  Elsewhere, the biggest healthcare provider in New York State terminated the employment of 1,400 employees for similar refusals.  Wow.

  78. 2021 Tuesday R: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Joe Biden is going to tour a union facility in Michigan today, touting his Build Back Better agenda and the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills (that always seem to redirect money back into the pockets of Democrats).  The declining leader of the regime says what he is doing will prevent America from losing its edge.  Whoa.
  79. 2021 Tuesday S: POLITICAL NEWS I- We have all seen the depressing video of angry illegal alien political hacks harassing Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the public crapper.  Shameful.  Well, we learn today that George Soros-funded groups are behind the harassment.  These scumbag illegal alien hirelings are going after the feisty Arizona Democrat to force her into supporting the “Build Back Better Agenda” which many of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe they are stupid to understand much less comprehend.  Likewise, other left-wing hirelings are going after Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, trying to force him into supporting this bull crap.  Finally, as the left continues ramping up its efforts to intimidate and persecute their real and perceived enemies, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich warns them softly that ‘there’s more of us than there are of YOU.’  Amen.
  80. 2021 Tuesday T: POLITICAL NEWS II- Ever-mercurial former Ambassador Nikki Haley says the “GOP needs Donald Trump.”  (Note- she’s still trying to get on his good side).  Meanwhile, a new report suggests that Democrats are losing the voter registration battle in battleground states.  NOT a good sign.  Next, Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says the GOP has a new bill with which to demand accountability from the Chi-Coms on COVID-19.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence is lighting up the left by saying today the Dems use the (FALSE FLAG OPERATION of) January 06, 2021, as a weapon with which to club President Donald J. Trump and Trump-Pence supporters over the head.  Amen.
  81. 2021 Tuesday U: POLITICAL NEWS III- Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, says that all along, the Democrats have wanted combined spending bills.  Elsewhere, third party hack Evan McMullin announced he is going to challenge conservative Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican.  What the hell is up with this bonehead, McMullin?  It’s a waste of money, time, and effort and, by the way, what is wrong with Senator Lee?
  82. 2021 Tuesday V: SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS – Frances Haugen- a so-called Facebook whistleblower, someone we believe is most likely a plant sent by Mark Zuckerberg himself- sat before the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee’s subcommittee Product Safety and Data Security and spilled her guts as to how terrible things are at Facebook when it comes to social media harming young kids and viewing pre-teens as an untapped source to lure in and violate.  Chairman Senator Richard “Dick” Blumenthal, DS-CT, says that the ‘SEC and FTC should investigate the whistleblower’s claims.’  Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, says that the ‘whistleblower’s testimony diverts from the real crime, Facebook’s unabashed war on conservatives.’
  83. 2021 Tuesday W: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-MEGA-MILLIONS DRAW- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1700 what with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 07, 11, 18, 30, 36, and Mega 04.  Out of 69,999 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $24,231 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by English band Fairport Convention- “What We Did on our Holidays”- came out on January 12, 1969.  The band featured a change in the lineup- Judy Dyble out and Sandy Denny (vocals, guitars, keyboards) in her place.  The lineup now featured Iain Matthews (lead vocals, congas), Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (basses, jug), and Martin Lamble (drums, percussion, and violin).  The album saw the band moving to much more of a folk-rock sound without some of the electric elements that fans, and music critics said made them sound like an English version of the Jefferson Airplane.  Still, it’s a great follow up to a superb debut album and we encourage everyone to visit your favorite site for the best in rock-and-roll music and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

2021 Wednesday: Friends, please stick around and we’ll discover together whatever the hell the Democrats are doing to rape our nation this day. There is hope, however, my friends, when a ‘president’ loses college-aged students who chant “F**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden,’ you know you are going down in flames and what is even better, is that everyone who supports the loser or who built the loser up is going down with the loser. I cannot wait to see Nancy Pelosi booted out on her ass. Woman to woman, YOU got to go, ‘Evil Nancy!’ Chef Goldie McNamara.

  53. 2014 Monday: Many children across ten states have undergone hospitalization due to Enterovirus, EV-D68; children with asthma are particularly at risk for complications.  The virus reportedly has found new life in the U.S. thanks to President Barack Obama[v] allowing Third World Central American children to flood the U.S. from across the Mexican border.  Elsewhere, Ray Rice was let go by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL after the release of a video in which the running back struck his fiancée, Janay Palmer, in an elevator in February 2014.
  54. 2015 Tuesday: Prime Minister David Cameron announces that a recent drone strike in Syria took out two British citizens serving in the Islamic State.  Both men—Reyaad Khan and Ruhul Amin—died in the British drone strike that occurred on August 21, 2015.  The duo had made recruitment videos for the ISIS scumbags.
  55. 2016 Thursday: NASA launched its OSIRIS-REX space probe today, destined to rendezvous with the asteroid 101955 Bennu in 2018.  It would arrive on scene on December 03, 2018.  Once there, it was to collect mineral samples from the surface and if all goes well will return to Earth orbit and eventual landing in Utah at a military facility sometime in 2023. 
  56. 2017 Friday: Hurricane Irma regained Category 5 status, battering Cuba with 160-mph wind, and taking aim on the Miami area; the death toll across the Caribbean climbed past 20 after the storm ravaged islands including St. Martin, St. Barts, St. Thomas, Barbuda, and Anguilla.  In one of the country’s largest evacuations, officials in Florida told more than 5 million people to leave their homes ahead of the hurricane; parts of interstates 75 and 95 northbound were bumper-to-bumper.
  57. 2018 Saturday:  In Egypt, a high court hands down 700 sentences, including 75 death sentences, for a violent Islamist protest put on by the Muslim Brotherhood at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square on August 14, 2013.  As always, the protesters claim it was a ‘peaceful sit-in’, but they began running amok and General Abdel Fattah al-Sissi responded with troops and killed loads of violent rioters for which, he deserves commendation.  Al-Sissi now is president of Egypt, and the country is in peace.   
  58. 2019 Sunday: Why Marvel would be promoting homosexuality is beyond us, but the mayor of Rio De Janeiro banned a comic book in which two men were swapping spit.  However, the Brazilian Supreme Court overturned the mayor’s ban.  Sad.  Elsewhere, tensions increase between India and Pakistan as Prime Minister Modi continues pushing his ‘make Hinduism great again’ agenda, what they call Hinduvta.
  59. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump criticized the top Pentagon brass today when he said that they ‘engage in useless wars in order to boost defense contractors’ profits.’  This is true and has been true since President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republican, warned the country about the ‘military-industrial complex,’ meaning there is loads of money for everyone involved in procuring and fulfilling defense contracts.  Military profiteers are the most shameful, disgusting people because they have no problem sending your loved ones to wage wars we never seem to win anymore.  Hence, money continues flowing around the clock.  God bless you, President Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, he is visiting Florida and North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe Biden” is conducting a remote town hall somewhere.  Speaking of both Trump and Biden, a poll conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University says that ‘people expect that Trump will crush Biden in their debates by a 47-to-41 percent margin.’  Friends, it is bigger than that, people just don’t want to answer these polls.
  60. 2020 Tuesday A: Fascinatingly, Democrats and anti-Trumpers are beginning to recoil from Jeffrey Goldberg’s article in the once-staid magazine, The Atlantic, a story the magazine published on September 03, 2020.  Mr. Goldberg- quoting the usual suspects- anonymous sources- claimed he was told (and to her discredit, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Channel backed him up) that in 2018 on a visit to France to visit U.S. World War I military cemeteries, President Trump supposedly called the fallen ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ for having served and worse, for having died.  Both Goldberg and his magazine got about three solid days of Trump-bashing but now, people are pulling back from it because NO has the balls to step forward (where are you, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, you pansy) and anyone who once supported the claims are quickly withdrawing from the claims in fear of being made liars- which they are.  President Trump may have slandered former Sen. John McCain, but McCain was an anti-Trumper from the start and the man who originally helped Hillary produce the “Trump-Russia Collusion” bogus theory.  We think McCain was a POS, too and believe that Mr. Goldberg, like most liberal ‘news media’ (aka Fake News) is full of crap, stinking, festering crap and U.S. military personnel know it.
  61. 2020 Tuesday B: We learn that over the Labor Day weekend in Chicago, 53 people were shot, 10 killed, including an 8-year-old girl.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at least 10 people were shot, including a six-year-old child who had both legs shattered when an errant drive-by fusillade of lead ripped through them.   Elected Democrats hem and haw over the numbers of deaths via gun violence and do everything possible to blame President Donald J. Trump for the crimes in THEIR locales.  Portland, Oregon, saw more violence over the Labor Day weekend and people are begging for it to stop yet Democratic leaders lack the balls to do something about it.  Time to bring in ex-Black Water Mercs and have them take out the scumbags, do what the Columbian people did when they finally could stand drug lord Pablo Escobar’s crimes any longer.  Fight fire with worse fire.
  62. 2020 Tuesday C: Rochester, N.Y., Police Chief La’Ron Singletary announces that he and his entire command structure are resigning over events surrounding the recent death of black PCP arrestee Daniel Prude who died in custody following a spit hood placed over his head approximately one week before his death.  Elsewhere, another black police chief- this one in Dallas- puts in her resignation papers.  Reneé Hall handed in her walking papers, effective November 2020.  Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., the Pelosi Mob continues fighting the targeted COVID-19 bill put forth by the Republicans.  Don’t worry, Madam Speaker, WE KNOW who is responsible for NO money going to those who need it, and we won’t forget.
  63. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 27,392,203 confirmed cases, UP by 191,260 cases, 897,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,873 deaths, and 18,337,409 confirmed recoveries, UP by 217,307 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,411,392 confirmed cases, UP by 16,259 new cases, 192,451 confirmed deaths, UP by 405 new deaths, and 3,450,818 confirmed recoveries, UP by 20,996 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  64. 2020 Tuesday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 742,833 confirmed cases, 13,764 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 9,957 confirmed cases, 86 confirmed deaths, and 3,028 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 80,623 confirmed cases, 2,044 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 444,751 confirmed number of cases, 32,971  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo now is trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.
  65. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,500.89, DOWN 632.42 points (-2.25%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,847.69, DOWN 465.44 points (-4.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,331.84, DOWN 95.12 points (-2.78%).  The price of GOLD is $1,939.10 per troy oz., -4.10 (-0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.191 (-0.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $902.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.91%) while the price of COPPER is $3.01 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,273.50 per troy oz., -10.50 (-0.4%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $36.61 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.41%).  Today, COFFEE is $131.65 per metric ton, -1.10 (-0.83).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.84 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  66. 2021 Wednesday: Friends, please stick around and we’ll discover together whatever the hell the Democrats are doing to rape our nation this day.  There is hope, however, my friends, when a ‘president’ loses college-aged students who chant “F**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden,’ you know you are going down in flames and what is even better, is that everyone who supports you or who built you up is going down with you.  I cannot wait to see Nancy Pelosi booted out on her ass.  Woman to woman, YOU got to go, ‘Evil Nancy!’  Chef Goldie McNamara.

If one waits long enough whenever ‘original album series’ repackaged offerings are released, at some point, the record company will combine them together into a larger package with which to double the earnings by enticing the holdouts to spend their money.  Thus, we Jethro Tull’s “Original Albums Series Volumes 1 & 2” that came out on January 24, 2020.  The packaging features Volume 1 which includes “Songs from the Wood,” “Heavy Horses,” and “Stormwatch,” Ian Anderson’s first solo album, “A,” and “The Broadsword and the Beast.”  Volume 2 includes “Under Wraps,” “Crest of a Knave,” and “Rock Island,” as well as “Catfish Rising,” and “Roots to Branches.”  The frugal purchaser can nab 10 albums all in one place for a decent amount of cash which is absolutely astounding.  We hope you rush out and buy this amazing offering- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.

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

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iv] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

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

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

IF the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges can collapse the American middle classes, they will be well on the way to toppling us a nation and putting socialism in its place

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

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

[iv] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade and when we do, Ozzy Osbourne will be among them.

[v] We began celebrating the music of Wishbone Ash beginning on Sunday, October 28, 2018 and continued it through Sunday, January 06, 2019.  From there, we covered the music of Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash beginning on January 07, 2019 through Sunday, January 13, 2019.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection of the BEST rock-and-roll music.  You will be glad you did.

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

[vii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.

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

[ix] We don’t think we will ever promote the music of this musical charlatan.  But who knows?  In 50 years, we very well could so remain alert.

[x] We look forward to promoting the music of Johnny Cash one day so remain vigilant.

[xi] We began promoting the music of this legendary American rock band- the Young Rascals- beginning on Sunday, 08-December-2013 through Saturday, 21-December-2013.  This band is one everyone who loves rock music must look into and enjoy

[xii] We hope to share the music of this famed artist, the one and only Little Richard, at some point in the next 20 years or so.

  62. 2021 Friday A: After massive outrage occurred over Tweeted videos of U.S. National Guard members sleeping in a parking garage in Washington, D.C., surfaced- in 32-degree and colder weather- First Lady Jill Biden went down there for photo ops, kissed, and made nice, and allowed them to return to the Capitol Building.  They were sent to the parking garage once their photo purpose was over- making it appear that the Capitol and the Inauguration was imminent threat of attack by Trump supporters because Democrats have NO LOVE for the American military.  Hence why Governors Greg Abbott, Texas, and Ron DeSantis, Florida, are calling their guard members home or vowing never to send them again.  Excellent.
  63. 2021 Friday B: Pressure is mounting on ‘President’ Joe Biden NOT to hire BIG TECH hacks to flesh out his White House communications department.  Meanwhile, Google is threatening to strip its search engine from Australia (there’s Mozilla, Opera, Bing, Safari, among others) because of a bill there that will charge Google for its news feeds.  BIG TECH trying to crush people and countries again yet loves the Chi-Coms.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Bloomberg News says it might be ‘difficult’ to ban Fox News Channel and Newsmax.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way, you frigging fascists.  Meanwhile, Google is shuttering Loon, an alternative to cellphone towers using balloons.
  64. 2021 Friday C: “Hammering Hank” Aaron baseball great received the COVID-19 vaccine as a way of encouraging fellow black folks to get the vaccine back on January 5.  On January 22, he is dead at age 86.  Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says there is NO way her or her family is getting the vaccine because when white liberals encourage black folks to do something, it never works out good for them.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. Tony Fauci, a guy who’s all over the ballpark and not in a good way says, he thinks we are plateauing out now what with ‘Usurper Joe’ Biden as our president.  Simultaneously, Great Britain says their variant of the Chi-Vi is not only more contagious but also more deadly.  Wow.   
  65. 2021 Friday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden is pushing stopgap measures while he tries to get Congress onboard with his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, a plan that will be funded with Chi-Com cash. In a sign of an ‘improving Biden economy,’ the ‘46th president’ is pushing for more food stamps like his former boss, Barack Obama, did back during the eight years of Obama-Biden.  Things were so good back then; food stamp usage was at an all-time historic high.  Guess we are returning to the GOOD OLD DAYS.  Likewise, he is pushing his $15 minimum wage increase for all federal workers which also is going to harm the economy.  In other interesting economic/labor news, Amazon.com is demanding IN-PERSON voting in the union vote in COVID-19-afflicted Alabama.  Amazon wants ‘in-person voting’ but in the 2020 Presidential Election, we couldn’t have ‘in person’ voting?  Tells you all you need to know: “86 46.”
  66. 2021 Friday E: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, and Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell plan to get the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump underway and soon.  However, constitutional scholars say you CANNOT impeach a former president.  I guess we shall see.  Former White House economic adviser Peter Navarro says you ‘forget unity’ if this bogus sham moves forward.   Speaking of impeachment, freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green- the famed MTG- has put forth articles of impeachment for the ‘46th president’ over his close ties to the
    Chi-Coms who are celebrating the NEW ‘Biden administration’ and the departure of Donald J. Trump.  It tells you all you need to know.  Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, also says ‘President’ Joe Biden should immediately nix the bogus impeachment of the out-of-office 45th president.  We concur.
  67. 2021 Friday F: Upon orders from ‘President’ Joe Biden, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers halts construction on the southern border wall.  There goes more interconnected jobs.   Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas says ‘President’ Joe Biden must reconsider stoppage of the Keystone XL Pipeline project.  He won’t.  Moving on, a unanimous votes puts Janet Yellen in as secretary of the U.S. Treasury while a nearly unanimous votes makes U.S. Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, Ret. In as secretary of Defense.  
  68. 2021 Friday G: Twitter finally cancels the scumbag ayatollah of Iran for calling death and destruction down upon Donald Trump.  What took you so long?   Speaking of former President Trump, his banks move to cancel him and his banking accounts.  Wow.  This is America?  Meanwhile, the Kremlin welcomes the ‘Biden administration’s’ return to extend the Open Skies Treaty between the U.S. and Russia but would like to see the details.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are importing ‘doctored oil’ from Venezuela so as to sneak it past inspectors seeking to clamp down on oil imports from the totalitarian hellhole.  Elsewhere, in other interesting news, the city of Chicago has already experienced 1,125 violent carjackings just this year.  Who the hell wants to visit the Windy City?
  69. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 97,973,544 confirmed cases, +717,789, 2,101,894, confirmed deaths, +17,882, and 54,008,728 confirmed recoveries (lower than reported last week), +419,939.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 24,973,544 confirmed cases, up 477,526 from yesterday’s reporting, 415,653 confirmed deaths, UP 9,463, and 10,913,397 confirmed recoveries, UP 351,315.
  70. 2021 Friday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,115,704 confirmed cases, 35,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (this number has not changed in a week), 328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 300,420 confirmed cases, 4,131 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New Hampshire: currently, they have 60,294 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and 53,128 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 582,869 confirmed cases, 4,245 confirmed deaths, and 497,578 confirmed recoveries.   
  71. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 88,701 cases, +247, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and 82,468 confirmed recoveries, +36.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Rat-eating scum.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Amazon.com is offering to help the ‘Biden administration’ with distribution of the now-questionable vaccines.  They could have aided the previous president but nope, no flipping way.
  72. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,996.98, DOWN 179.03 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,543.06, UP 12.15 points (+0.09%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,841.47, DOWN 11.60 points (-0.30%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.50 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.56 per troy ounce, +0.009 (+0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,109.10 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.0065 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,365.20 per troy oz, -9.90 (-0.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $51.98 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.55%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000030 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.15 Russian rubles.   In other economic news, U.S. house sales of existing homes hits its highest mark back in 2006 at an 0.22-percent increase due to a slowdown in new home construction.  However, we fear that unless the government provides aid to landlords, the Chi-Coms will become the de facto landowner in the U.S. via using strawman companies to snap up all available real estate.  We cannot permit something as outrageous as this EVER to happen.
  73. 2021 Friday L: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions draw what with a $999 million jackpot up for grabs. Okay, here’s the numbers for Draw #1627 with NO BIG WINNER(S): 04, 26, 42, 50, 60, and Mega 24.  Out of 1,082,353 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,036 apiece. UPDATE- although the California Lottery website shows the Mega Millions pot is now $20 million, it still is not showing that someone actually WON the pot, estimated to be $1.1 billion.  News media is reporting a sole winner in Michigan so we will update when we possess the information. FINAL UPDATE: one person won in Michigan won the big pot worth $1.01 billion.  Congratulations.

CCC. 2018 Saturday: In Egypt, a high court hands down 700 sentences, including 75 death sentences, for a violent Islamist protest put on by the Muslim Brotherhood at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square on August 14, 2013. As always, the protesters claim it was a ‘peaceful sit-in’ but they began running amok and General Abdel Fattah al-Sissi responded with troops and killed loads of violent rioters for which, he deserves commendation. Al-Sissi now is president of Egypt and the country is in peace.

  56. 2019 Sunday: Why Marvel would be promoting homosexuality is beyond us but the mayor of Rio De Janeiro banned a comic book in which two men were swapping spit.  However, the Brazilian Supreme Court overturned the mayor’s ban.  Sad.  Elsewhere, tensions increase between India and Pakistan as Prime Minister Modi continues pushing his ‘make Hinduism great again’ agenda, what they call Hinduvta.
  57. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump criticized the top Pentagon brass today when he said that they ‘engage in useless wars in order to boost defense contractors profits.’  This is true and has been true since President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republican, warned the country about the ‘military-industrial complex,’ meaning there is loads of money for everyone involved in procuring and fulfilling defense contracts.  Military profiteers are the most shameful, disgusting people because they have no problem sending your loved ones to wage wars we never seem to win anymore.  Hence, money continues flowing around the clock.  God bless you, President Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, he is visiting Florida and North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe Biden” is conducting a remote town hall somewhere.  Speaking of both Trump and Biden, a poll conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University says that ‘people expect that Trump will crush Biden in their debates by a 47-to-41 percent margin.’  Friends, it is bigger than that, people just don’t want to answer these polls.
  58. 2020 Tuesday A: Fascinatingly, Democrats and anti-Trumpers are beginning to recoil from Jeffrey Goldberg’s article in the once-staid magazine, The Atlantic, a story the magazine published on September 03, 2020.  Mr. Goldberg- quoting the usual suspects- anonymous sources- claimed he was told (and to her discredit, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Channel backed him up) that in 2018 on a visit to France to visit U.S. World War I military cemeteries, President Trump supposedly called the fallen ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ for having served and worse, for having died.  Both Goldberg and his magazine got about three solid days of Trump-bashing but now, people are pulling back from it because NO has the balls to step forward (where are you, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, you pansy) and anyone who once supported the claims are quickly withdrawing from the claims in fear of being made liars- which they are.  President Trump may have slandered former Sen. John McCain but McCain was an anti-Trumper from the start and the man who originally helped Hillary come up with the “Trump-Russia Collusion” bogus theory.  We think McCain was a POS, too and believe that Mr. Goldberg, like most liberal ‘news media’ (aka Fake News) is full of crap, stinking, festering crap and U.S. military personnel know it.
  59. 2020 Tuesday B: We learn that over the Labor Day weekend in Chicago, 53 people were shot, 10 killed, including an 8-year-old girl.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at least 10 people were shot, including a six-year-old child who had both legs shattered when an errant drive-by fusillade of lead ripped through them.   Elected Democrats hem and haw over the numbers of deaths via gun violence and do everything possible to blame President Donald J. Trump for the crimes in THEIR locales.  Portland, Oregon, saw more violence over the Labor Day weekend and people are begging for it to stop yet Democratic leaders lack the balls to do something about it.  Time to bring in ex-Black Water Mercs and have them take out the scumbags, do what the Columbian people did when they finally could stand drug lord Pablo Escobar’s crimes any longer.  Fight fire with worse fire.
  60. 2020 Tuesday C: Rochester, N.Y., Police Chief La’Ron Singletary announces that he and his entire command structure are resigning over events surrounding the recent death of black PCP arrestee Daniel Prude who died in custody following a spit hood placed over his head approximately one week before his death.  Elsewhere, another black police chief- this one in Dallas- puts in her resignation papers.  Reneé Hall handed in her walking papers, effective November 2020.  Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., the Pelosi Mob continues fighting the targeted COVID-19 bill put forth by the Republicans.  Don’t worry, Madam Speaker, WE KNOW who is responsible for NO money going to those who need it and we won’t forget.
  61. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 27,392,203 confirmed cases, UP by 191,260 cases, 897,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,873 deaths, and 18,337,409 confirmed recoveries, UP by 217,307 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,411,392 confirmed cases, UP by 16,259 new cases, 192,451 confirmed deaths, UP by 405 new deaths, and 3,450,818 confirmed recoveries, UP by 20,996 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  62. 2020 Tuesday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 742,833 confirmed cases, 13,764 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 9,957 confirmed cases, 86 confirmed deaths, and 3,028 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 80,623 confirmed cases, 2,044 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 444,751 confirmed number of cases, 32,971  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo now is trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.
  63. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,500.89, DOWN 632.42 points (-2.25%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,847.69, DOWN 465.44 points (-4.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,331.84, DOWN 95.12 points (-2.78%).  The price of GOLD is $1,939.10 per troy oz., -4.10 (-0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.191 (-0.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $902.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.91%) while the price of COPPER is $3.01 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,273.50 per troy oz., -10.50 (-0.4%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $36.61 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.41%).  Today, COFFEE is $131.65 per metric ton, -1.10 (-0.83).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.84 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  64. 2020 Tuesday G: Let’s see what no-good actions the Chi-Coms and the Democrats have done today.  Stick around and find out as communist China-Democratic Party Collusion is the REAL COLLUSION- where do you think funding for America’s left-wing mob violence is emanating? Not from the Democrats, they don’t have the money their Beijing bosses do…

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.

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

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iv] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

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