SPRING SESSION 2022

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MAY 16, 2022:

Vice President Levi P. Morton; U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Norman J. Coleman; U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan; U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward; U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning; Black Sabbath featuring Ronnie James Dio, King Crimson featuring Robert Fripp, Nazareth featuring Darrell Sweet, Nirvana featuring Krist Novoselic, Robin Trower featuring James Dewar, Savoy Brown featuring Roger Earl, and the Who:

  1. 1003 Monday: The 140th Roman Catholic Pope John XVII assumes his role as the Vicar of Christ on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until November 06, 1003.
  2. 1605 Monday: The 233rd Roman Catholic Pope Paul V became the shepherd of all Christians on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until January 28, 1621.
  3. 1611 Monday: Future 240th Roman Catholic Pope Innocent XI is born Benedetto Odescalchi.  He would pick up his Holy Cross on September 21, 1671 and would lead his global flock from then until August 12, 1689.
  4. 1770 Wednesday:  Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was only 15 years old.
  5. 1771 Thursday: The Battle of Alamance, a pre-American Revolutionary War battle between local militia and a group of rebels called the Regulators, took place on this date in Alamance County, North Carolina.
  6. 1792 Wednesday: Denmark abolishes the slave trade.
  7. 1801 Saturday: In Florida, N.Y., future 24th U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward is born.  He would serve under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson from March 06, 1861, to March 04, 1869.  During this time, he bought Alaska from the Russians, something many saw as foolhardy and a waste of taxpayers’ money.  In fact, so many derided the purchase, they called it “Seward’s Folly;” that is, until massive gold deposits were discovered there.  In 2019, the 45th president of the United States sought to buy Greenland from Denmark, and everyone laughed at him, including the Europeans.  Imagine how important Alaska is to the United States geopolitically and the same could be true of Greenland.  We shall see.
  8. 1817 Friday: Regular steamboat service up-and-down the Mississippi River begins on this date.
  9. 1824 Sunday: The future 22nd Republican vice president of the United States—Levi P. Morton—is born in Shoreham, Vermont, on this date.  He served under President Benjamin Harrison from March 04, 1889, to March 04, 1893.
  10. 1827 Wednesday: In Richfield Springs, N.Y., future first U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Noman J. Coleman is born.  A future Democrat, Secretary Coleman would serve under President Grover Cleveland from April 03, 1885, to February 14, 1889.
  11. 1831 Monday: The future 37th U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning is born.  A future Democrat, he would serve under President Grover Cleveland from March 08, 1885, to March 21, 1887.
  12. 1860 Wednesday: At Chicago, the Republican Party selects Abraham Lincoln as its candidate for the presidency of the United States.
  13. 1861 Thursday: The Confederate government offers war volunteers a $10 premium to join the ranks.
  14. 1863 Saturday: During the Vicksburg Campaign, the bloodiest fighting occurs at Champion’s Hill in Mississippi.
  15. 1865 Tuesday: The 8th U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Andrew Johnson from today until August 31, 1866.

Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority required to convict; 10 days later, the trial ended after two other articles of impeachment went down in flames, too.  The problem was Johnson wanted to follow the wishes of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln who wanted to treat the South with leniency while Lincoln’s holdover Cabinet members wanted to crush them.

  30. 1940 Thursday: Prime Minister Winston Churchill returns to London from Paris as the Nazi juggernaut rolls across France.  For the Germans, the conquest of France is going better than expected.  French troops are in full retreat while the British are struggling to reach the Channel Coast.  General Heinz Guderian’s XIX Panzer Corps is breaking away from the rest of the steam-rolling army to try to beat the Brits to the coast so as to complete the trap and bag tens of thousands of prisoners.

  33. 1944 Tuesday: The first load of 180,000 Jews arrives at Auschwitz Concentration Camp.

  43. 1975 Friday: Japanese climber Junko Tabei became the first woman to reach the summit of Mt.

  58. 2014 Friday: California burning- near San Diego, California, authorities inform the public that at least 20,000 acres have gone up in smoke within the county.   This is the toll of 11 wildfires.  This crap goes on year after year because Democrats will NOT permit proper forest management, won’t build new dams to collect fresh water instead of allowing it to flow out to sea, and putting so many restrictions atop PG&E and other power companies to fight global warming by pursuing renewable energy goals that are unrealistic.  The state requires good governance and it’s not from the Democrats.

  61. 2017 Tuesday: As the ongoing effort to destroy President Donald J. Trump continues, Newsweek reports that UNNAMED intelligence officials warned Israel NOT to share sensitive information with the president because he MIGHT pass it on to the Russians.  (Note- this is a load of crap).
  62. 2018 Wednesday: As talks on a summit between North Korea and the United States continues, Pyongyang says that it ‘might cancel the talks if the U.S. continues demanding unilateral disarmament of its nuclear weapons.  They know what happened to Libya that gave up its WMDs and things did not end well for the regime of Moammar Gaddafi.   Likewise, talks that were supposed to occur between North and South Korea are canceled as a protest of U.S. demands.
  63. 2019 Thursday: According to the Global Drug Survey, English-speaking peoples are more likely to get drunk throughout the year than do, non-English speakers, with the British getting drunk the most, an average of 51 times per year.  Folks, this is bogus information as Russians drink more than anyone and communist nations’ citizens (or authoritarian ones) drinking more than anyone anywhere else.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration finally does something that should have happened long ago and that is to cancel $929 million federal grant funding the disastrous California High-Speed Rail project, a project that seems to enrich Democratic politicians and their Chi-Com overseers.  (Note- we await Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which will make the train what it is- an expensive boondoggle).
  64. 2020 Saturday: Thanks to communist China, the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues as the disease continues causing problems around the world.  However, information coming from independent sources within the totalitarian state report as many as 750,000 cases of the coronavirus with possible number of deaths ranging from 150,000-to-250,000.  Since the authoritarian state won’t tell the world the truth, we must rely on these brave sources willing to put their lives and those of their families at risk to get the truth out to the rest of the world.  Here are the global statistics for today: 4,626,632 confirmed cases what with 311,363 confirmed deaths but 1,679,428 confirmed recoveries which is amazing, the number of recoveries compared to deaths.  In the United States, we have 1,497,244 confirmed cases, 89,420 confirmed deaths, but 272,525 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, state by state, beginning first with the Golden State: 76,793 confirmed cases, 3,204 confirmed deaths, but of course, 0 confirmed recoveries- California, give us the information!  You are no better than flipping communist China!  For Hawaii, we have 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. Ige.  For the once great state of Washington, now beset by a socialist state government, here are the stats: 18,288 confirmed cases, 999 confirmed deaths, but like that fellator Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, NO number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Inslee won’t share the stats.  Vote these scumbags out of office as soon as possible.  
  65. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 163,716,770 confirmed cases, +6,113, 3,393,335  confirmed deaths, +117 and 143,320,593 confirmed recoveries, +77,970.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,715,951 confirmed cases, UP 20,704 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,147 confirmed deaths, UP 308,[x] and 27,136,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,423.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]   
  66. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 283,944 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 175,665 deaths.

  68. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,119 confirmed cases, 6,382 confirmed deaths, and 832,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- South Korea, a rising power in East Asia: 132,290 cases of the virus, 1,903 confirmed deaths and 122,163 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]

  71. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– And they used to complain about President Donald J. Trump using Department of Defense funds to defend the southern border, we learn today that Joe Biden has diverted $2 billion from federal healthcare programs to care for illegal aliens overrunning the border.  Wow.   Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that Joe Biden should relieve “Kooky Kamala” Harris of her duties as border czar because in 54 days in this position, the least popular woman in the United States has yet to visit the border.
  72. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Australia announces it is going to keep its borders closed to all but its own citizens returning home until mid-2022.   Next, the U.S. Department of Defense says that ‘yes indeed, Israel has the right to defend herself.’  Hell, we already know that.  They are on a crusade to eliminate Hamas and other Islamist scum from the planet.  We say continue. 
  73. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– the recount of ballots in Arizona has already yielded evidence that criminal activities did indeed occur in the subsequent hours after the 2020 Election.  There is word that ‘Senator’ Mark Kelly could be recalled, and that Martha McSally returned to her position.  We await further developments.

  75. 2021 Sunday J: Miscellaneous News I–  Joe Exotic is seeking an early release from the slammer due to a possible cancer diagnosis.   Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, 1,500 trailers meant to house the homeless are sitting vacant in parking lots.  In other news, the FBI has re-classified the Alexandria, Virginia, baseball shooting of a few years back as ‘domestic terrorism.’  The dumb SOBs said at first it was a ‘case of suicide by cop.’  How flipping stupid do you think all of us are?  The ‘domestic terrorism’ call was the ONLY call.  (Note- for the BIG GOVERNMENT folks, they need another generation or two of misinformed souls before they can begin pulling the scams on us).
  76. 2022 Monday: We know, we’re behind…

  56. 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad.  (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge).  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.  A decade from now, they will be surpassing us.

Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House.  Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup.  We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime.  Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.

  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov.

  66. 2020 Saturday A: In Tullahoma, Oklahoma, famed rock-and-roller, Little Richard, died at age 87.  Little Richard[vi] was famous for so many songs but “Lucille,” “Tutti-Frutti,” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly” are the ones that leap out.  Check him out.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys are one of those American success stories, one that NO one at the time had any idea as how far it would go.  Dennis Wilson loved surfing and brought that love of riding the waves home with him.  Brother Brian- inspired by his brother started writing tunes.  A talented, musical family, Brian played bass, piano, and sang while older brother Dennis played drums and could sing.  Youngest brother Carl could play guitar, and their sad started seeing money signs although he was abusive as hell and put them down every opportunity he had.  Mike Love joined his cousins on vocals while neighbor David Marks joined on rhythm guitar and vocals.  Brian could hear all the harmonies in his head and soon the group began to form and chose the name, ‘the Beach Boys.’  Their first album, “Surfin’ Safari” came out on October 01, 1962, and it set the world on fire.  One of the oldest American rock groups, the Beach Boys touched off the California sun and surf craze.  The songs were pretty simple but hey, it was the early 1960s, the Vietnam War was not yet in motion, anything was possible and so it was.  Thus, we have some classic tunes on this album, “Surfin’ Safari,” “409,” and “Surfin’.”  Great music if there ever was which set the world ablaze and put the members of the band on one of the all-time crazy roller-coaster rides.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  You will be glad you did.

  78. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The nation is all atwitter over last night’s ‘Joe Biden address to a Joint Session of the Congress,’ because Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, sitting up in the gallery was wearing a mylar blanket like all the illegal alien brats use to cover their bodies in the illegal alien holding pens. 
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Speaking of the ‘Biden agenda,’ Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘Joe Biden’s radical agenda is dead on arrival in the U.S. Senate.’  Next, the Senate is interviewing the next round of Joe Biden’s ‘judicial picks,’ most of them far-left whackos as the Dems seek to move on from the conservatives the Trump administration got onto the nation’s federal courts.  In other Joe Biden news, Catholic bishops are suggesting that Joe Biden should NOT take communion because of his insane push for abortions at all stages of fetal and post-fetal development.  We concur, Joe Biden should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church along with every other pro-abortion Democrats.  It is an evil and a sin.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– GOP lawmakers are requesting an inspector-general investigation into Climate Czar John F. Kerry’s close ties to the criminal regime in Tehran, what many say are treasonous ties.  It is clear that the Biden administration WON’T investigate John Kerry’s Logan Act violations unless, of course, it’s time to throw him under the bus for some misdeed within the administration.  Speaking of the Iranians, after the leak of the audio tape hit the news cycle in which the Iranians were discussing the help John F. Kerry provided them on ongoing Israeli covert operations in Syria, the presidential office is undergoing an extreme shakeup as they seek the rat(s) who leaked the damning evidence of collusion between “Lurch” and the mullahs.  Meanwhile, Maria Butina, a Russian intelligence operative (or so the feds claimed) who did time in an American prison is seeking to win a seat in Russia’s Parliament.   Speaking of Russia, allies of Alexei Navalny are closing down various of his offices over a harsh crackdown by the Putin government. 
  81. 2021 Thursday I: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice is going to launch civil rights violations charges against convicted Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin as well as the other three officers awaiting their trials.  You might ask, ‘doesn’t double jeopardy exist?’  In this country, NO longer, NO more.  If the federal government doesn’t like the outcome of a criminal trial, it can come in, dump in loads more charges, and go to town.  This is not right and should not be condoned otherwise, the feds can take repeated swings at the same crumbling apple.  ALL of us are in danger.  Next, New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says that ‘New York City will fully reopen on July 01.’  We’ll see.  Moving on, after Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, gave last night’s rebuttal to Joe Biden’s incoherent speech, “Uncle Tim” was trending on Twitter before- after about 12 hours- Twitter took it down.  They wanted to make sure enough people saw it before removing it.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolam said on Newsmax today that he believes the seizure of Rudy Giuliani’s electronic devices- other than the hard drive from Hunter Biden’s laptop– demonstrates how the U.S. Justice Department has become totally politicized.  He alluded to the fact that prior to this- the third warrant- Justice Department officials sought two prior warrants to go after Rudy Giuliani but were denied each time.  Thus, they had to await a change in leadership at the DOJ, i.e., Merrick “The Mole” Garland becoming the attorney general.  With him sitting in the big chair, the enemies of Rudy easily got the warrants they sought, and the rest is history.  However, many are curious as to WHY the feds did not seize Hunter’s hard drive?   Also, as in other Trump allies’ treatment at the hands of the feds, the FBI made sure that reporters were on scene so they could see “America’s Mayor” embarrassed if that is at all possible.  They showed up at 6:30 a.m.  Hmmm, no wonder why there is the FBI show on TV… finally, in other U.S. government news, the feds will maintain the ban on menthol-flavored cigarettes and cigars.
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Political News III–  Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, are both refusing corporate donations.  Because they WOKE, man, the corporations that is.

Next, here are the stats for the United States: 83,037,059 confirmed cases, UP 86,921 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,020,660 confirmed deaths, UP 536,[xxii] and 80,655,685 confirmed recoveries, UP by 37,328.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xxiii]

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 571,367 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,612 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 464 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  86. 2022 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,235,869 confirmed cases, 90,518 confirmed deaths, and 8,966,118 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,969,659 confirmed cases, 73,948 confirmed deaths, and 5,817,480 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 248,405 confirmed cases, 1,418 confirmed deaths, and 239,190 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,498,116 confirmed cases, 12,703 confirmed deaths, and 1,446,729 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Grand Princess Ship: they have 122 confirmed cases, 7 confirmed deaths, and 115 confirmed recoveries.[xxiv]

  89. 2022 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.706 per gallon, $4.181 in Florida, $5.261 in Hawaii, and $4.699 in Washington state.[xxix]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: North Carolina- $3.864.  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 31st LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Uzbekistan: $3.294 per U.S. Gallon.[xxx] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,417,378,268,284 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxxi]  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 SEVENTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland.  This nation holds $256,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  90. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian submarines are delivering barrages of cruise missile assaults onto various targets in Ukraine including an attack on Kyiv while the U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres was visiting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier in the week.  The Russians admit they targeted the meeting.  Meanwhile, 63 days into the Russo-Ukrainian War, Russian President Vladimir Putin says he’s going to ‘make it official’ by declaring war on Ukraine.  A new report says that the Russkies had almost captured President Zelensky in the opening days of the war.
  91. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Ukraine is now cracking down on traitors providing aid and comfort to the Russian invaders.  Time for ‘scorched earth’ tactics, the destroying of all materiel that would help the Russians, the poisoning of water sources, the destruction of crops, leave the new Red Army invaders in a cesspool of death.  Ukraine points out that the Russkies have lost at least 23,000 military personnel since its ill-fated invasion of Ukraine commenced 63 days ago.  Meanwhile, Kyiv reports that their flying ace- the so-called ‘Ghost of Kyiv’ who shot down at least six Russian jets in combat over the nation’s capital city- has now been shot down and killed himself.
  92. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III- The U.S. is providing military training to Ukrainians in Germany.  This, of course, will anger Russia.   Meanwhile, the Turks are cutting off access to the Black Sea as a growing problem of seaborne mines- implanted by the Russkies to hinder shipping to Ukraine- which means NO vessels in our out.
  93. 2022 Friday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– ‘Border Czar’ Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border catastrophe for the past 392 days.  It has been 306 days since the ‘border czar’ arrived on scene for a few minutes’ photo op.  Tragic.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders these past 119 days is $758,919,732.  The cost of caring for them since the VP and her boss, President Joseph R. Biden, took office is $42,504,725,475.  The number of illegal aliens who have arrived at our border since January 01, 2022, is in our estimate, 1,214,514.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the country is 47,838,931 whereas we believe the numbers closer to 95-130 million illegal aliens if not more.  These people drain resources meant for Americans, increase food scarcity, drive up crime, dumb-down our young people, overrun our hospitals and collapse our medical systems, and lower wages while driving up rents/mortgage costs. This is not right.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  94. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Iran nuclear deal supposedly hangs on the U.S. removing the terror designation from that country and its jihadist military apparatus.   Next, Russia announces its plan to abandon the ISS over the sanctions that the West and its other allies have slapped atop them.
  95. 2022 Friday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Hopefully, Joe Biden’s ‘misinformation board’ won’t censor or silence us but doctors around the world are attempting to find the cause of rising cases of hepatitis among young children.  They say they are leaning towards adenovirus as being the culprit whereas we are leaning towards increasing rates of COVID-19 vaccinations among young people that seemingly won’t or don’t stop.  The medical community is now urging the vaccination of wee babes for this Chi-Com-engineered virus.  This is insane.  The thing even more evil is that apparently, many of these children afflicted with hepatitis have required liver transplants.  Where oh where are these organs being harvested?  Communist China?  North Korea?  The aborted?  Wherever they are coming from, this ain’t right.  Poor Dr. Joseph Mengele- he was born a century too soon.   Speaking of abortion, progressives fear that IF Roe v. Wade goes down, nearly half of ALL U.S. physicians will not undergo abortion training.

  101. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden News I– President Joseph R. Biden and Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador purportedly discussed the ‘unprecedented illegal alien invasion of the United States via the U.S.-Mexico border.’  While Joe Biden attempts to blame everyone else for his self-inflicted damages to the United States, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, lays the blame squarely where it belongs: upon the shoulders of senile Joe Biden.
  102. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden continues absorbing hit after hit after hit after hit.  Today, the inflation surge hit 6.6-percent, the largest jump since 1982.  Still, Joe hasn’t a clue as to what to do nor does he have the desire to do something to the positive if he did.   In other ‘Joe Biden Daily Disaster News,’ 72-percent of American voters say that ‘IF the Hunter Biden laptop stories are true, Joe Biden should be impeached and removed from office.’ Other polls report that his approval ratings continue their ongoing slide.  In other news, a new poll says that a vast majority of American voters are demanding TRANSPARENCY on Joe Biden’s declining mental state.
  103. 2022 Friday S: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster II– Joe Biden is still considering pandering to young holders of student loan debt (woe to those who have already paid off their loans).  To cover the costs of removing $10,000 debt from holders (woe to those with more than $10,000 student loan debt), the cost to taxpayers will be another $321 billion slapped atop the U.S. taxpayers- primarily the middle and working classes.  Thank you, f**king Joe Biden, thank you.  “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis calls the insane push to alleviate student loan debt ‘simply wrong.’  “America’s Governor” also alleges the Biden regime is installing an ‘Orwellian Ministry of Truth’ with which to perpetuate hoaxes and to silence its critics.  Rep. Rick W. Allen, R-GA 12th District, says of Joe Biden’s attempt to dismiss student loan debt that it’s a big political mistake.
  104. 2022 Friday T: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the election continues drawing nigh, the Biden regime is pushing the European Union to avoid an embargo of oil from Russia which will drive the cost of oil into the stratosphere.  The Biden regime wants the EU to slap the embargo onto the Russkies following the election so Democrats will somehow be able to retain power rather than go down in droves.
  105. 2022 Friday U: Joe Biden Regime News II– In between tears, Pentagon spokesperson Admiral John Kirby says there’s ‘no way that Russian President Vladimir Putin should be invited to the G-20.  Later in the day, we heard that Mr. Putin had been invited.   In other news, the Biden Dept. of Justice is going to challenge Alabama’s law banning tranny treatment for underage kids as well as prohibiting them from competing in scholastic sports other than in that of their gender.
  106. 2022 Friday V: Political News I– Senate Democrats are preparing to unleash $33 million in ad buys on the country.  Meanwhile, Senators Chuck Grassley, R-IA, and Ron Johnson, R-WI, are pushing DARPA to investigate the hacking of the DNC back in 2016.   Meanwhile, in a shocking interview between Sean Spicer and former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, the latter told the former that ‘there was not enough fraud to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election nor that the GOP should put Donald J. Trump forth as its 2024 standard-bearer.’  He did say, however, that he would vote for President Trump over the Democrat.
  107. 2022 Friday W: Political News II– Although NO one asked him, former President Bill Clinton is defending HIS flawed Russia policy while he was president.  His advisor back then- Dick Morris- encouraged Ukraine to surrender its nukes following the collapse of the Soviet Union with the guarantee that the United States would defend that country from all enemies.  (Note- all the Ukrainians had to do was to read U.S. history and to understand the millions of broken promises made by one administration after another.  Ask the Native Americans).
  108. 2022 Friday X: Political News III– Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is on the warpath against Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ.  He believes they are standing in the way of his and his fellow progressives’ view of the coveted ‘socialist utopia.’  F**k Bernie.  Speaking of the ‘socialist utopia,’ former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI 2nd D, says that ‘Joe Biden’s ‘misinformation board’ makes the Biden regime a DICTATORSHIP.   Thankfully, Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd District, is the one leading the fight to defund this appalling, un-American ‘ministry of truth.’  Good.
  109. 2022 Friday Y: Political News IV– To the irritation of liberals across the Old Dominion State and across the country, Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears, R-VA, is celebrating the many accomplishments of the Youngkin Administration.  We celebrate with them.  Next, Rep. Ralph Norman, R-SC 5th congressional district, informed Newsmax today that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is a ‘pathological liar.’  Meanwhile, Alaska congressional candidate and former Governor Sarah Palin says that the ‘GOP must confront Dems who seek to take the United States DOWN.’
  110. 2022 Friday Z: Federal and State Court News– A U.S. court has sentenced ISIS ‘Beatle’ Kotey to life in prison for his murders of foreign journalists and captives.  Another judge has denied President Donald J. Trump’s request to dismiss the contempt charges against him in New York State and to force him to continue paying $10,000 per day in contempt of court charges.  Next, as her sentencing day looms, Ghislaine Maxwell has had her bid to have her conviction struck down denied.
  111. 2022 Friday AA: Popular Culture News–  James Corden will be leaving the “Late, Late Show,” sometime next year.   Next, the family of the filmmaker murdered by actor Alec Baldwin on the set of “Rust” is demanding the New Mexico sheriff conducting the investigation to take the shooting video of their loved one down from the Internet.  Speaking of the Internet, new analysis shows that with Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, conservatives are going to gain whereas liberals are going to lose.  In fact, in such pathetic sniveling, various liberal pundits on various television networks have shown the world their crimes by whining that they may be the ones ghosted, blacklisted, and/or shadow-banned.  Folks, we don’t want to ban liberal speech.  No, we want more of it, so everyone sees how frigging insane they are while we want unlimited access to share opposing views.
  112. 2022 Friday BB: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1759 what with a $34 million jackpot on the line: 09, 11, 34, 49, 66 and Mega 15.  Out of 52,053 winning tickets, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $424 apiece.

[i] We look forward to sharing the music of not only Waylon Jennings but of Willie Nelson, and the rest of the Outlaw country music scene. We definitely hope you will keep your eyes open for the day when we do.  You will love them all.

[ii] We offered the music of this famed West Coast band- the Grass Roots- beginning on Thursday, 06-February-2014 through Saturday, 22-February-2014.  We hope you will seek their music out by visiting whatever site you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] As is the norm, we visit Martin Windrow’s amazing book, “The Last Valley,” De Capo Press (2006) as well as Time-Life Books for relevant information on this critical fight against communism.

[iv] Not sure when we promote the music of Aretha Davis but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[v] At some as yet undetermined point, we are going to go on an all-out Motown and Soul blitz, probably sometime before 2030 so we hope you will keep posted.  Otis Redding is one of the all-time greats and had he not died before his time could have been one of the music world’s megastars.

[vi] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] See previous footnote.

[ix] The cops should have executed this Islamist POS on sight.  F**k him.

[x] 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.

118. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 2022

2003 Wednesday: U.S. forces open fire on a group of Iraqi protesters in Fallujah, Iraq, after they began throwing things and making threats. This would be the focal point for the buildup to what would become known as the Battle of Fallujah in 2004, a make-or-break effort in the unnecessary invasion launched by the George W. Bush administration. (Note- we think this is a prime example of the Deep State influencing a president into a war and then when it goes wrong, they abandon them to their fate).

  72. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,736,197 confirmed cases, 61,480 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,222,546 confirmed cases, 35,030 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,397 confirmed cases, 478 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 400,386 confirmed cases, 5,510 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Montana, a state with a superb governor: they have 108,402 confirmed cases, 1,556 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xi]   The White House is slamming Joe Rogan for being so brash as to urge healthy young people NOT to get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We concur.  We aren’t getting this s**t.  Meanwhile, Pfizer’s antiviral COVID-19 pill could be out at the end of 2021.  In other news, the New York Times says that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov went to great lengths to cover up the massive number of deaths he caused by sending COVID-19-positive patients BACK into nursing homes thus to infect and then eliminate them.  This is diabolical and this thug must go to prison.[xii]
  73. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,285 confirmed cases, 6,361 confirmed deaths, and 830,273 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Slovenia, the birthplace of the greatest first lady in U.S. history: 238,421 cases of the virus, 4,236 confirmed deaths and 223,286 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]

  75. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.00 per gallon, $2.794 in Florida, $3.782 in Hawaii, and $3.427 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Montana: $2.817.  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 third lowest gasoline price in the world- Angola: $0.923 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Much to be said for the former Portuguese colony.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,224,518,271,345 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  76. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Joe Biden is sending $310 million to Guatemala to ‘help them’ stem the tide of illegal aliens flowing north through their country to the United States; we’ll see.  Speaking of the border, Customs and Border Patrol reports that last month, the feds took 170,000 illegal aliens into custody.   Elsewhere, the Biden regime-controlled U.S. Department of Justice has quietly repealed Trump era restrictions on the amount of federal aid going to ‘sanctuary cities’ and ‘sanctuary states.’   Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is blasting the Biden regime for NOT permitting him entry into the illegal alien holding pens in Donna, Texas.
  77. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm is receiving loads of criticism over the numerous conflicts of interest surrounding her such as her connections to an electric vehicle automaker.   The secretary has millions of dollars of stock in Proterra, a company that will benefit- as will she- depending upon which way she goes in doling out taxpayer dollars.  Wow.  Next, Joe Biden taps anti-Trumper Harris County, Texas, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement, aka ICE.   Meanwhile, tonight’s ‘Joe Biden address to a joint session of Congress’ will be devoid of a ‘designated survivor.’  So says White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki because hardly anyone will be in attendance.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday H: Joe Biden Regime News II– Tonight is the NIGHT, folks, Joe is going to reveal yet another multi-trillion bill, his so-called “Family Plan,” that will require of ALL Americans forced preschool for 3-and-4-year-olds so we can indoctrinate the kids at an earlier age and teach them to rat out their parents.  This is NOT good, and parents must resist this crap.  Political strategist says that Joe Biden ‘won’t reveal the sticker shock’ which means it is going to be COSTLY.   Next, Joe Biden is going to name longtime Marxist political hack, Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel to become U.S. ambassador to Japan.  Finally, former governor and Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Eric Greitens says that “Biden-Harris first one-hundred days is marked by failure.”  You are preaching to the choir, sir.  (Note- although we mentioned this yesterday, we will mention it again- the Washington Post, aka WAPO, says it ‘won’t fact check “Pro-China Joe” Biden the way it did President Donald J. Trump.’  Wow).[xxi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘Biden administration (i.e., the regime) displays schizophrenic undertones as it seeks de-escalation and confrontation at the same time.’  Absolutely true.  Next, as the truth continues to hit the presses over Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations in doing business with Iran while a private citizen, Congressman Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that the allegations against ‘Lurch’ appear to be ‘somewhat treasonous.’   Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district says, ‘Kerry MUST resign.’  We concur.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that the U.S. pullout of Afghanistan could lead to a takeover of the country by the Taliban.  Finally, the U.S. sees major rollbacks on the sanctions placed atop Iran so the U.S. can return to the bogus Iran nuclear deal.
  80. 2021 Wednesday J: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– In the craziest news of the day, we learn that crackhead/pedophile presidential son, Hunter “Crack Pipe” Biden is going to teach a class on FAKE NEWS at New Orleans’ Tulane University.  WTF?  In other whacked-out news, Democrats are demanding that the FCC block the sale of a popular radio station so that Miami Latinos CANNOT listen to conservative talk radio.  WTF?  Meanwhile, co-founder of the San Francisco-based $2 billion startup company, Iterable, Justin Zhu, was fired for micro-dosing LSD prior to a board meeting back in 2019.  Seems rather late to be terminating someone for something that occurred 2.5-3 years ago.  Strange.  Finally, a contestant on “Jeopardy!” made the ‘OK’ gesture and is under fire for being a white supremacist.  People, give it a F***ING REST already.  Enough is enough.
  81. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that while the Dems claim to SUPPORT Israel, they put forth a true anti-Semite POS such as Colin Kahl for the No. 3 position at the Pentagon: the undersecretary for policy.  (Note- Mr. Kahl says he will take a bipartisan approach to his job.  Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy- what a guy).  Next, President Donald J. Trump says of Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, that in so many words, she is a ‘LOSER.’   Moving on, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, is trying to save his job by signing a tough abortion bill preventing abortion for genetic abnormalities.   Meanwhile, Congressmen Jeff Duncan, R-SC 3rd congressional district, and Doug Lamborn, R-CO 5th congressional district, are pushing back HARD on the Biden’s regime pushing of the bogus Critical Race Theory which is Critical Race Theory BS.  Good for you gentlemen!  Finally, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘don’t denigrate Arizona’s 2020 Election audit.’  Amen.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– In some shocking news today, the feds swooped down on ‘America’s Mayor’ and Donald J. Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and removed all of his electronic devices in an early morning raid.  Mr. Giuliani offered to meet with the authorities and to hand over his devices but no, much like they did during the raid on Roger Stone’s home, they wanted to INTIMIDATE the man, trying to tie to him the crimes committed by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine.  Likewise, they also raided the home of Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, two more big Trump supporters and legal eagles.   In other news, as California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to whine and cry over the recall effort against him, one of the recall advisers says that ‘one-third of the signatories are Democrats, one-third are independents, and one-third are Republicans.’  Everyone wants Gavin Newsom OUT of office ASAP.[xxii]   Finally, Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is working with Stephen Miller to defeat Joe Biden’s RACIST policies on equity rather than equality when it comes to providing aid to farmers.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– An alternate juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial says that ‘mob riots, protests, and the racial climate did NOT influence the jury’s decision.’  Sure.  Uh huh, of course not.  Next, following a cop shooting of a black suspect, a North Carolina judge denies a request for the video cam footage.   Next, a video shows that a California man died while the cops were holding him.  Here we go again.   Regarding firearms, a new poll shows that support for heavier gun laws is lacking support among the American people.
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: Notable Departure– NASA Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins is dead at the age of 90.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3555 with a $41 million pot on the line tonight: 14, 18, 19, 33, 37, and Mega 19.  Out of 116,245 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $41,234.  The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in Coarsegold, CA 93614.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #841 with a $116 million pot on the line: 16, 18, 35, 39, 53, and Powerball 21.   Out of 55,428 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $859,829.  The winning ticket was sold at Stater Brothers 188 in Grand Terrace, CA 92313.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: The Wrap-Up– Amazing to see Joe Biden’s ‘address’ in which, he praised the police, noting most of them are okay.  Here is how socialism works- you grind law enforcement and the military in the dirt, kick them in the teeth, beat them up, purge them, and then when they can take no more, you make a deal: IF you don’t want things to return to the way they were- you being public enemies and all- you will now serve as storm-troopers and go after our enemies.  YOU can do whatever you want to them and without any oversight or parameters.  This is evil- glad I am now in Israel- Mo.  We love and cherish our freedoms… Meanwhile, the three people involved in the death of Ahmaud Arbery have been indicted on hate crimes charges.   A federal grand jury indicted Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan today which is good.  These three crackers have much for which to answer.
  87. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 512,067,467 confirmed cases, +785,425, 6,255,853 confirmed deaths, +2,360 and 465,824,561 confirmed recoveries, +566,075. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 82,950,138 confirmed cases, UP 61,891 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,020,124 confirmed deaths, UP 350,[xxiii] and 80,618,357 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,438.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xxiv]
  88. 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 570,831 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,076 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 463 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  89. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,216,406 confirmed cases, 90,343 confirmed deaths, and 8,963,856 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,964,981 confirmed cases, 73,928 confirmed deaths, and 5,816,157 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 248,405 confirmed cases, 1,418 confirmed deaths, and 239,022 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,493,194 confirmed cases, 12,686 confirmed deaths, and 1,445,808 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Navajo Nation: they have 53,381 confirmed cases, 1,758 confirmed deaths, and 51,519 confirmed recoveries.[xxv]   
  90. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,071,491 confirmed cases, 10,695 confirmed deaths, and 4,033,472 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Nauru, 226th place on the list: 4 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 3 confirmed recoveries.[xxvi]                         
  91. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,916.39, UP 614.46 points (+1.85%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,871.53 UP 382.60 points (+3.06%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,287.50, UP 103.54 points (+2.47%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $105.11 per barrel, +3.09 (+3.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.80 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $23.17 per troy ounce, -0.30 (-1.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $909.90 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.05%) while the price of COPPER is $4.44 per pound, -0.04 (-0.86%).[xxvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,249.53 per troy oz., +46.71 (+2.12%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,095,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,039.00 per USD/T, -54.50 (-1.76%). The price of ZINC is $4,136.00 per USD/T., -83.50 (-1.98%).   The price of COCOA is $2,575.00 per USD/T, +7.00 (+0.27%).  The price of COFFEE is $218.40 per USD/T, +2.45 (+1.13%).  The price of CORN is $817.00 per USD/T, +1.50 (+0.18%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,043.80 USD 1,000 board feet -8.60 (-0.82%).[xxviii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.62 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.95 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.45, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 70.25 of theirs.    In Rwandan Franc, one greenback equals 1,010.05 and in St. Helena Pound, a buck equals 0.80 and in El Salvadoran Colón, one dollar equals 8.75 of theirs.[xxix]       
  92. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.176 in Florida, $5.256 in Hawaii, and $4.691 in Washington state.[xxx]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Montana- $4.097.  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 30th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Chad: $3.206 per U.S. Gallon.[xxxi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,414,818,869,159 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxxii]  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 SIXTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil.  This nation holds $258,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  93. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Sensing that Joe Biden is on the verge of mental collapse, Russia once again warned the United States of potential retaliation over America’s asinine sanctions.   Meanwhile, Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, says he ‘witnessed ample signs of Russian war crimes in Ukraine’ during a recent visit to that war-torn country.  Next, reports continue to arise of the Russian navy employing dolphins to guard their Black Sea base at Sebastopol.  This has been tried before but has never proven successful.  Still, with the Russkies, one never knows.
  94. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The Russians have raised rocket and missile attacks on Ukraine once again.  Several blasts rocked Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, today.   The British minister of defense- Ben Wallace- says that ‘Russia could become a cancerous growth in Ukraine.’  Meanwhile, Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax this evening that if Russia were to use tactical nukes in Ukraine, ‘all bets would be off, and the U.S. must put troops on the ground in direct conflict with the Russkies.’  This is becoming more ludicrous by the day.  We cannot fight a land war with Russia in eastern Europe, it’s impossible to do and will lead to the Chi-Coms becoming the world’s master.  Not good.
  95. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been the nation’s ‘border czar’ for the past 391 days and even worse, she has not arrived to do her job in 305 days.  Our estimates of the rising costs associated with rising numbers of illegal aliens continues breaking records every day.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 118 days is $752,442,887.  Next, the cost of caring for the detritus of the world since the Biden-Harris regime grabbed power on January 20, 2021, is $42,498,248,630.  The number of illegal aliens encountered at the border since January 01, 2022, is approximately 1,203,637.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 46,635,294.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 95-to-130 million which is unsustainable for any country and must be fixed now.  Deport ALL of them.  Now.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  96. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says the southern border is ‘broken because of Joe Biden’s attitude.’  George P. Bush, R-TX, says that the southern border is ‘out of control.’  Next, while testifying before the Congress, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the only solution for solving the border crisis is to give every illegal alien who has swarmed across it amnesty.  Folks, not only this insane, it’s also the kill stroke for the United States.  It’s over, it’s done, it’s finished.  In other border-related news, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is seeking donations with which to bus illegal aliens into Washington, D.C.  While we think this is great, how about finding a way to push them back across the border into Mexico?   Simultaneously, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, is suing the Biden regime over its upcoming plan to lessen border security next month with the overturning of Title 42.  DHS Secretary Mayorkas says he believes there will be 18,000 or more encounters of illegal aliens per day once the pro-American Title 42 ends.  We must fight back against this evil.
  97. 2022 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $50.55 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.22 (3) Novavax: $44.27 (4) Merck & Company: $88.61 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.59  (6) BioNTech: $143.40 (7) Moderna: $142.52.
  98. 2022 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $98.09 (2) Boeing: $154.19 (3) General Dynamics: $242.20 (4) Lockheed Martin: $441.69 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $445.17.
  99. 2022 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.22 (2) DuPont: $67.58 (3) 3M: $147.21 (4) Honeywell: $189.92  (5) Teijen: $1,388.00.
  100. 2022 Thursday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.06 (2) Beyond Meat: $39.82  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $69.55.
  101. 2022 Thursday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $156.21 (2) Lowe’s: $205.13 (3) Home Depot: $312.04 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $562.00 (5) Amazon: $2,891.93.
  102. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden endorsed a new bill that will funnel assets seized from Russian oligarchs to Ukraine.  Joe also asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in aid for Ukraine which means the Biden regime will most likely skim off 12-20-percent for the Biden Family’s coffers.
  103. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll pulls NO punches and says that a large majority of Americans blame Joe Biden for skyrocketing gas prices.   In other disastrous news for the Biden regime, the Chi-Coms and Iran are going to increase their mutual defense pact.  This is a direct slap in the face of slobbering Joe Biden.  In yet another problem for the feeble U.S. ‘president’- one who could not speak today at a ‘press conference’ of sorts without going totally BLANK in his thoughts, words, and speech- parental rights groups are pushing back with growing force over Joe’s suggestion that children do not belong to their parents but to the regime.  George Orwell could not have foretold the topics of his classic novel, “1984,” than what we are seeing today.
  104. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– President Ron Klain, uh, excuse me, President Joe Biden, continues dangling the bait that the Biden regime could cancel all CURRENT student debt but not over $50,000.  Alas, it must be an election year for this carrot of the carrot of ‘reparations for slavery’ to be dangling in front of the young, dumb, and full of c*m voters.  Should Joe Biden cancel student loan debt, he will alienate all those who have struggled to pay their loans off who by far outnumber those who have not.
  105. 2022 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The House select committee investigating (yeah, right) the FALSE FLAG EVENTS of January 06, 2021, announce their plan to hold at least eight public hearings, beginning in June, in the hope of somehow influencing the voters to vote ‘D’ on their ballots in November.  We suspect their ratings will be at the bottom of the crapper.  We also suspect the American people will become even more infuriated with the regime and its allies than they are now and if- we repeat- IF- the elections are honest, the Dems are going to go the way of the dinosaur.
  106. 2022 Thursday S: Big Tech News– CNN + threw in the towel today, two full days ahead of the scheduled shutdown on April 30, 2022.

117. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2022

1975 Sunday: North Vietnamese infantry and armor encircled Saigon on this date. Although panic grips much of the populace of South Vietnam’s capital city, South Vietnamese troops are determined to hold out for as long as they can. Had not the Democrats in the U.S. Congress prevented President Gerald R. Ford from rushing in military supplies so the ARVN troops could fight on equal terms, this humiliating defeat would never have occurred. However, the Democrats being the pro-communist scum they are left the South to its fate. Evil.

  53. 2008 Sunday: News begins to break about a scumbag named Josef Fritzi in the town of Amstetten, Austria, had a special cellar in his house where he imprisoned his daughter Elisabeth from the age of 18 onward for the next 24 years.  He raped her and fathered seven children with her, three girls and four boys.  By the time the authorities discovered what this monstrous scumbag had done, he was age 74.  The trial was swift, and he received a life sentence.   We’re sorry, the Austrian government should have shot this POS.  
  54. 2009 Monday: A 23-month-old Mexico City toddler died at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, becoming the first swine-flu death on U.S. soil.  Meanwhile, a strong earthquake hammered Mexico, rattling nerves among residents already tense from a swine flu outbreak.  Elsewhere, former WBA heavyweight champion Greg Page died at home in Louisville, Kentucky, of positional asphyxiation.  He was 50 years old.  Over the course of his pro-career, he amassed a record of 58 fights, 48 wins (17 Kos), and  1 draw.  Finally, one of President Barack Hussein Obama’s Air Force One jets, a Boeing 747, and an F-16 fighter jet panicked New Yorkers as they circled over lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty for what turned out to be a photo op.  Many people believe this to have been staged, the president committing a heinous practical joke above a city scarred from the 9-11 Attacks eight years before.  What a POS.

Breyer breaks his shoulder on a fall from his bicycle and is taken to the hospital by ambulance.  Meanwhile, in Karachi, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, launch a terror attack killing 10 and injuring at least 25 people. 
  59. 2014 Sunday: The high court in Egypt dishes out some stiff sentences to pro-Mohammed Morsi rioters- 11 of them this time- of anywhere from 5 to 88 years in the slammer for running amok and rioting in the streets. 
  60. 2015 Monday: The 82nd U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder left office on this date.  A Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from February 03, 2009, until today.  His successor, Loretta Lynch- the 83rd U.S. attorney general assumed office today and served until January 20, 2017.
  61. 2016 Wednesday: Unlike other European countries, Austria says “F— this” by limiting asylum claimants into their country and also reserves the right to reject people at their border.  Of course, human rights groups go haywire claiming this is an afront to all humanity.  Austria, we’re with you, Germany and Angela Merkel are NOT your friends.
  62. 2017 Thursday: Julius Younger, American virologist who helped create the Salk polio vaccine dies at age 96 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump softens his stance on NAFTA by saying he ‘seeks to renegotiate it.’

Trump.
  64. 2019 Saturday: Our ‘beloved’ Pope Francis, the 266th Roman Catholic pontiff, donates half-a-million bucks to ‘help’ migrants trying to reach the U.S. border via caravan who are stranded in Mexico City.  Let them remain there.  Meanwhile, a shooter opens fire at a synagogue in Poway, California, managing to slay one and wound three before being taken down himself.   God bless the victims.
  65. 2020 Monday: Thanks to the reopening of some states, the Stock Market has a momentous day.  The DOW Jones Industrial Average closes up 358.51 at 24,133.78; the S&P 500 closes up 41.74 at 2,878.48; and the NASDAQ closes up 95.64 at 8,730.16.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the one the Chinese claim is ‘not theirs but came out of the United States’ continues causing problems.  Global statistics show that currently, we have 3,002,303 confirmed cases what with 208,131 confirmed deaths and 878,813 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,005,934 confirmed cases what with 56,329 confirmed deaths but 112,913 confirmed recoveries so things are looking good- most places.  California’s confirmed cases rest at 44,792 and at 1,755 confirmed deaths.  The Chinese continue lying about their numbers.  Elsewhere, people continue to speculate about North Korean thug dictator, Kim Jong Un, who has been absent from world view for the past two weeks.  Many speculate he contracted COVID-19 and is near or at death whereas others claim he is on a ‘holiday.’  We shall see.  Finally, apparent Democratic Party 2020 presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden remains mum on allegations he sexually abused a staffer back in the 1990s when he was a senator.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!
  66. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 148,190,387 confirmed cases, +864,953, 3,126,361  confirmed deaths, +14,155, and 85,879,081 confirmed recoveries, +850,124.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,375,602 confirmed cases, UP 55,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 579,162 confirmed deaths, UP 806,[v] and 119,318,872 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,064.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 264,711 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,735,524 confirmed cases, 61,477 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,217,368 confirmed cases, 34,958 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,349 confirmed cases, 478 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 399,331 confirmed cases, 5,498 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., South Dakota, the state with a damaged GOP governor: they have 122,228 confirmed cases, 2,663 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,217 confirmed cases, 6,359 confirmed deaths, and 830,088 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Costa Rica, a bastion of freedom in Central America and where some of us might be becoming citizens if the pretender in the White House is not ejected out upon his flat ass: 241,240 cases of the virus, 3,168 confirmed deaths and 201,264 confirmed recoveries.[viii]

  71. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.996 per gallon, $2.791 in Florida, $3.767 in Hawaii, and $3.421 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.569.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The first country on the list is the second lowest gasoline price in the world- Iran: $0.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Good for those Shiite lunatics  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,221,266,256,036 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, upbraids the Biden regime’s plan of dumping tens of millions of dollars on the Northern Triangle countries of Central America in the hope that dumping U.S. dollars on corrupt and sometimes criminal regimes will stop the ongoing flow of illegal aliens to the United States.   Speaking of the Biden regime, a new directive prohibits ICE from arresting criminal illegal aliens at courthouses across the country.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is going to launch a major investigation into extremists…within its own ranks.  Sounding more and more like a communist regime in the making when governmental departments begin looking for enemies within their own ranks.  Next, Joe Biden wants to give the Internal Revenue Service $80 billion so they can step up tax collections and enforcement activities against shirkers unwilling to do their duty and pay higher taxes.  Of course, Democrats in arrears with the IRS will be entirely fine.[xvi]  Moving on, Joe Biden is going to Georgia tomorrow to celebrate his 99th day in office and to blast the GOP.  Oh, he also wants to propose FREE PRESCHOOL, yet another way of getting hold of America’s kids and indoctrinating them into believing there are a billion genders.  Finally, the Washington Post is going to end its ‘fact-checking’ of the lying Joe Biden.  (Note- Fake News strikes again).
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– With feeble old Joe Biden in the White House willing to drop to his knees in front of the Iranian mullahs if the murderous thugs will A-L-L-O-W the U.S. back into the flawed nuclear deal, what do the Iranians do?  They cause problems for the U.S. Navy in the Persian Gulf, threatening our warships who then had to drive the IRG swift boats away.  (Note- we think the U.S. should sink Iran’s entire navy).  Meanwhile, as news continues to break about John F. Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations, there are growing calls for a thorough investigation into the scumbag’s criminal activities.  Speaking of Kerry, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘John F. Kerry’s love of the Iran nuclear deal may have clouded his judgment.’  (Note- nope, Marco- Kerry is a traitor and should be treated as such).  His fellow senator, Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘IF the Iran allegations are true, John Kerry must leave government employ.’  Amen.  Bloomberg journalist Eli Lake says that the ‘Iran talks can do without Russian diplomatic mischief’ (so says a leftist).
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Political News I– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is limiting attendance for Joe Biden’s first ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress.  What?  Is he going to be like, a, uh, hologram?  Whatever happens, it’s going to be hysterical.   In California, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is sniveling and whining about the recall effort going forward against him.  He is blaming the GOP when it’s EVERYONE wanting to get his worthless butt out of office.  Still, many believe the Democrats are going to pull a fast one and somehow preserve the Smiler’s career by having him (we said this last year when or if “Kooky Kamala” Harris actually became the VP) appoint himself U.S. senator by having Senator Dianne Feinstein step down and him take her place.   The other possibility is that he will step down so the lieutenant governor can step in, so the state remains in Democratic Party hands.  We shall see.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News II–  President Donald J. Trump has endorsed Susan Wright for the Texas 6th congressional district.  Her husband, Rep. Ron Wright, died from COVID-19 and the 45th president hopes to have his widow take his place.   Next, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is going to address a “Back the Blue” rally that is upcoming.  Speaking of the Peach State, 21 black political leaders are excoriating the Democrats for damaging their state by lying about the new voter law. 
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci makes yet another ‘promise’ to the American people- that the U.S. should see a ‘turning point in several weeks’ if we all do the right thing like wear masks and get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We won’t put any money on that.   Next, although the liberals won’t give President Donald J. Trump any credit for the vaccine, they are now demanding he do a public service announcement to get his ‘Neanderthal followers’ to go out and get vaccinations- like good citizens.  What a load of crap.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed Democratic strategist James Carville says that ‘wokeness is a problem for Democrats’ and that ‘we all know it.’   Next, news comes out that many state-run colleges now require new hires to commit to the promotion of far-left agendas.  Wow.  We knew this.  In other WOKE insanity, the CEO of VisuWell- Sam Johnson- found himself terminated from his job for asking why a foul-mouthed punk at a prom reception was wearing a dress and being a foul-mouthed little shit.  What?  People cannot say anything anymore.  This is what happens when two generations of young people don’t get the belt across their asses.  Spare the rod and spoil flipping generations.  If kids had been disciplined there would be NO WOKE movement.   Finally, Elon Musk is getting lambasted by the WOKIES about him hosting Saturday Night Live sometime next month.  WTF?  We thought Musk was a ‘cool guy.’[xvii]
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: Miscellaneous News I– Former Dallas PD Officer Amber Guyger who shot her black neighbor dead claiming she entered the wrong apartment and thought the man was an ‘intruder’ is appealing her sentence.   Next, Governor Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed three anti-abortion bills limiting when abortions can occur.  Of course, the liberals are out running amok, demanding he be removed from office.  Wah, wah, wah.  Next, Senator Cynthia Lummis, R-WY, introduced a bill today that would permit people under age 21 to buy handguns.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says the ‘Democrats are insane to fight the Arizona 2020 Election audit.’  They are doing everything they can to stop it so that tells you all you need to know.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News II– At the House GOP retreat, apparently tensions between hardcore RINO Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, are rising.  We are not sure as to why the two are having problems but of the two, Cheney is the least popular and needs to shut her mouth.  Moving on, Little Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. Transportation secretary, says that ‘from the start, Joe Biden has longed for a BIPARTISAN infrastructure bill.’  Yeah, sure.  Bulls**t.   Meanwhile, liberals are fearful that the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan is going to leave women in a dark place.  We guess we could stay there another 50 years and the plight of women in that s—hole country would…still be the same.
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Miscellaneous News III– Britney Spears is set to speak at an upcoming court hearing regarding the highly unfair conservatorship in which, her father has placed her.   Next, states are fearful of SCOTUS taking the new concealed carry of firearms case in that it might lessen their power.  You can’t trust Chief Justice John Roberts. 
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw: Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1654 with a $319 million on the line: 15, 22, 30, 41, 42, and Mega 25.  Out of 120,216 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $10,640 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,481 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 205,726 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 462 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  88. 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 $5.680 per gallon, $4.168 in Florida, $5.249 in Hawaii, and $4.687 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Mississippi- $3.776.  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 29th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Pakistan: $3.035 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,412,638,051,610 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland the FIFTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg.  This nation holds $288,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The world-famous ‘border czar,’ Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the disaster befalling the country for the past 390 days.  Worse than that, it’s been 304 days since last she showed up to do a photo op.  The cost of caring for these uninvited illegal aliens for the past 117 days is a shocking $745,967,001.  Atop that, since the two derelicts became the ‘guardians of the Constitution and the American people,’ the nation has shelled out $42,491,772,744 to care for the leeches.  Since the first day of the year, we have seen 1,192,049 illegal aliens pour across the border and into the interior of the country.  NOT good.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens living in the country is 46,623,706.  We believe the number is treble that, possibly quadruple that.  NO nation can withstand this invasion, perhaps not even until November.  Our nation could soon be lost.  Time for Operation Wetback II.  Let’s round ‘em up and deport them ASAP out of the country and back to whence they came. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  90. 2022 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– A new poll says that nearly half of all Israelis fear a second Holocaust is brewing.  Next, Russia releases American hostage, Trevor Reed, home to his family in an exchange for a Russian drug trafficker locked up in the United States.  The parents of Mr. Reed said it appeared their son’s treatment at the hands of the Russians was horrible.  F**king Russians.  Time to nuke them.   Speaking of the Russians and their horrible treatment of those whom they don’t like, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is demanding global control over Russia’s nuclear weapons stockpile.  Ukraine fears that the Russians might nuke them the more the Ukrainians continue mopping the floor with Russian blood.

  97. 2022 Wednesday N: Political News I– A new bill has come forth seeking to reinstate ALL U.S. military personnel terminated for refusing to undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu virus.  Excellent.  Bring them back.  In other news, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testifies on Capitol Hill where we learn that the Biden regime spent $72 million to extricate itself from federal contracts with which to complete construction on the border wall.  Wow.  Secretary Mayorkas says the Trump administration ruined the immigration system but has NO fixes to stop the seething tidal wave of humanity pouring across it.  Instead, he says that domestic extremism- WHITE POWER EXTREMISM- is the most potent threat facing Americans today.  While DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was testifying before Congress, he raised concerns over what he said is the establishment of a ‘disinformation board’ with which to combat ‘misinformation.’  The board will be headed by ultra-leftist Nina Jankowicz, a fellow at the Wilson Center.
  98. 2022 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3659 what with a $37 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 03, 11, 13, 23, 34, and Mega 23.  Out of 121,094 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $21,088 apiece.  One ticket was sold at the Arco AM/PM in Perris, CA 92571 while the other was sold at 7-Eleven in Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #981 with a jackpot of $454 million up for grabs: Out of 180,291 winning tickets, SIX people had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,226 apiece.

  79. 2021 Monday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,981.57, DOWN 61.92 points (-0.18%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,138.78, UP 121.97 points (+0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,187.62, UP 7.45 points (+0.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.05 per barrel, +0.14 (+0.26%).  The price of GOLD is $1,782.00 per troy oz., +1.90 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $26.31 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.39%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,255.20 per troy oz, +8.80 (+0.71%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, +0.02 (+0.43%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,912.58 per troy oz, -0.97 (-0.03%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,800.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.87.     In Kenyan Schilling, one greenback equals 108.00 and in Korean- North Won, a buck equals 900.03 and in Angolan Kwanza, one dollar equals 652.83 of theirs.[xiv]  
  80. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.994 per gallon, $2.788 in Florida, $3.743 in Hawaii, and $3.413 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Missouri: $2.568.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The first country on the list is the absolute lowest gasoline price, Venezuela: $0.076 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  How about that?  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,217,294,081,383 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Customs and Border Patrol confirmed early today that 800 Venezuelans have been apprehended along our southern border attempting to cross into the U.S.  According to the Bidenistas, these intruders will most likely be given protected status meaning U.S. taxpayers will be footing the bill for decades to come as well as for their ever-increasing progeny.   In other border news, the Grand Old Party (GOP) claims that ‘IF we win back the majority in the House in 2022, we will refund the construction of the border wall.’  (Note- we believe that besides the wall, we should lay in minefields, obstacles for vehicles, boats, and people, as well as electrifying a second inner fence and the building of foo gas trenches past that.  We also believe that baby alligators must be seeded from the Deep South to the Rio Grande, and also that military bases should be relocated to the border, especially since we do much of our war-fighting in the Middle East.  Add to that the laying in of razor wire fences along the boundary line through the middle of the Rio Grande and the positioning of fast action helicopter and drone forces would also help halt the cartels just as targeted assassinations of coyotes would be good, too.  This would solve a lot of problems.  Period).
  82. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– at a recent confab of House Republicans, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned his fellow Republicans NOT to go soft on ongoing Chi-Com espionage operations ongoing in the United States.  We must remain vigilant.   Next, Israeli intelligence officials are planning a visit to Washington, D.C. to see their counterparts and to warn them that Joe Biden’s concessions to the Iranians are not beneficial for either nation.   Sadly, this announcement follows on the heels that former U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry, Democratic-Socialist, tipped off the Iranians more than 200 covert Mossad operations in Syria which makes him a prime candidate for prosecution under the Logan Act.  The POS scumbag did this while Donald Trump was the president of the United States.  Prosecute this loser and send him to federal prison.  Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan tells Joe Biden that he should reconsider calling the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  (Or else!).
  83. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– the Centers for Disease Control says that ‘summer camps in the U.S. may reopen as long as social distancing rules are observed and masks are worn.  Next, the Biden administration is sending vaccines and PPE gear to India, the nation now beset by the most cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Next, Chloé Zhao who won three Oscars at last night fiasco found her success censored in communist China because she criticized the communist nation.  Oi vie! 
  84. 2021 Monday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– First, Democrats continue doing everything to continue stealing elections what with 10 states seeking to empower felons leaving prison with the right to vote.   Next, as the effort to audit the 2020 Election in Arizona continue, the judge scheduled to oversee the effort- Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury- recused himself because some of the attorneys involved in the effort worked as interns for the court official. 
  85. 2021 Monday J: Joe Biden News– Ten U.S. states are suing the Biden administration over its ‘draconian climate change laws, rules and regulations.’  Good.  All 50 states and the U.S. territories and commonwealths should be suing the Biden administration, too.  Next, Joe Biden plans to feed 34 million schoolchildren via another high-priced plan.  Sorry, Joe, we can feed our own kids.  F— you.[xviii]  Next, President Donald J. Trump’s chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, says that ‘Joe Biden’s tax plan is an assault on investment and investors.’  Add to that the fact that critics are lambasting senile old Joe by reminding him of what he did back in 1972 with taxes and how now in demanding tax increases across the board, he is coming into conflict with both the GOP and SALT (state and local taxes) rebels.  Elsewhere, as if things are not bad enough for the inept Biden regime, Rep. Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s tax hike on capital gains is a MAJOR BLUNDER.’  Finally, America First Legal and Trump adviser Stephen Miller are filing lawsuits against the Biden regime accusing the bumbling Biden regime of RACISM in that its ‘plan’ to help ranchers and farmers is ONLY for black ones, not whites.  This is clearly racist and a violation of the American people’s civil rights.  NOT good for Joe.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Political News I–  Goofy Rep. Tim “Poached Egg Eyes” Ryan has officially announced that he is running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Rob Portman.  Big deal.   Next, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, says that the leaders of the GOP are ‘Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell.  We’ll see, Liz, we’ll see.  We’ll check back in on your in November 2022.   In other fascinating news, pundits are pointing out that Fox News LOSER Chris Wallace just cannot get beyond President Donald J. Trump nor the Antifa and Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Chris, there is a reason as to WHY we mostly no longer watch Fox News but especially the weekends when you are on the air.  POS.
  87. 2021 Monday L: Political News II– In Connecticut, District Court Judge Robert Chatigny has dismissed a law preventing trannys from participating in scholastic sports within the state.  WTF?  Next, former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA 9th congressional district, rules out a run for the governorship in the Peach State or for any other office.  Moving on, Democrats are sobbing big tears of grief because it looks like the 2020 Census is going to lead to the loss of numerous Democrat seats due to people pouring out of BLUE STATES and relocating to RED STATES that are going to get new GOP seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Add to that the redistricting that is going to happen and it would appear the Dems’ goose is cooked.  In other fascinating news, we learned today that 62-percent of WHITE LIBERALS are afflicted with mental illness.  Hell, we could have told you that without having to consult psychiatrists. 
  88. 2021 Monday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– For the first time in nearly two decades, SCOTUS agrees to hear a case regarding concealed carry of handguns.  Next, SCOTUS rejects the GOP’s bid to revive the PUBLIC CHARGE rule put in place by President Donald J. Trump that people seeking asylum in the U.S. had to be able to support themselves without receiving government aid.  Democrats can’t have that- they want to care for their low-wage slaves like they’re wee babes in need of Nancy Pelosi’s drooping breast milk.  Man, put it back into effect, let’s stop supporting illegal aliens and take care of the American people. 
  89. 2021 Monday N: Miscellaneous News I– An ‘Anti-Asian/Anti-Pacific Islander Hate Bill’ passes in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 99-1.  Good.  Democrats, tell the black Democrats to stop attacking the Asian and Pacific Islander Democrats.  The lone NO vote belonged to Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO.  He voted against it because he said it ‘was too broad and scope and could infringe on the rights of others.’  Speaking of Asian hate, a black man violently attacked an Asian man in New York City.   Next, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that the ‘U.S. Department of Justice is launching an investigation into the Louisville, Kentucky, police department in the aftermath of the death of Breonna Taylor.  (Note- another police department beats the dust). 
  90. 2021 Monday O: Miscellaneous News II– The Oscar ratings last night are even worse than last year’s what with 9.85 million viewers.  In 2020, 23 million tuned in and that was considered LOW.  Everyone is pointing out that WOKEISM is killing show business, it’s killing sports, and it’s killing the American way of life.  We must stand against WOKEISM at every turn which means, NO MORE MOVIES and NO MORE SPORTS.  In other news, first-time gun purchases are driving gun sales in the U.S.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump’s official portrait is now on display in the official gallery of presidential portraits.  Finally, 53 women made it through United States Marine Corps boot camp, a place that was formerly ALL male.  Congratulations.
  91. 2021 Monday P: Business News– Panera Bread Company is back in the black what with delivery and takeout meals.  Next, a Florida McDonald’s restaurant is paying people $50 just to show up and interview.
  92. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 510,837,666 confirmed cases, +767,216, 6,249,012 confirmed deaths, +3,439 and 464,046,721 confirmed recoveries, +960,671. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 82,789,716 confirmed cases, UP 55,853 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,019,008 confirmed deaths, UP 426,[xix] and 80,547,402 confirmed recoveries, UP by 40,466.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xx]
  93. 2022 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,715 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,960 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 461 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  94. 2022 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,212,425 confirmed cases, 90,324 confirmed deaths, and 8,958,374 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,955,748 confirmed cases, 73,869 confirmed deaths, and 5,813,904 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 238,861 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,489,316 confirmed cases, 12,668 confirmed deaths, and 1,444,636 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., U.S. Military: they have 619,078 confirmed cases, 685 confirmed deaths, and 591,443 confirmed recoveries.[xxi]   
  95. 2022 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,066,021 confirmed cases, 10,694 confirmed deaths, and 4,026,872 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- MS Zaandam, 224th place on the list: 9 cases of the virus, 2 confirmed death and 7 confirmed recoveries.[xxii]                         
  96. 2022 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,240.18, DOWN 809.28 points (-2.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,490.74 DOWN 514.11 points (-3.95%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,175.20, DOWN 120.92 points (-2.81%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $102.77 per barrel, +1.07 (+1.05%).  The price of GOLD is $1,903.70 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $23.61 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $915.00 per troy oz, +2.90 (+0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $4.45 per pound, +0.01 (+0.18%).[xxiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,203.52 per troy oz., +17.09 (+0.78%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., -300.00 (-1.62%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,095,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,081.00 per USD/T, -14.00 (-0.45%). The price of ZINC is $4,206.00 per USD/T., +13.00 (+0.31%).   The price of COCOA is $2,577.00 per USD/T, +145.00 (+5.96%).  The price of COFFEE is $221.40 per USD/T, +0.20 (+0.09%).  The price of CORN is $799.25 per USD/T, -4.00 (-0.50%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,034.80 USD 1,000 board feet +19.80 (+1.95%).[xxiv]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.94 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.35, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 73.38 of theirs.    In Peruvian Nuevo Sol, one greenback equals 3.82 and in Philippine Peso, a buck equals 52.30 and in Polish Zloty, one dollar equals 4.42 of theirs.[xxv]       
  97. 2022 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.684 per gallon, $4.137 in Florida, $5.249 in Hawaii, and $4.688 in Washington state.[xxvi]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Missouri- $3.758.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 28th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Kyrgyzstan: $3.007 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,410,752,888,854 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the United Kingdom the FOURTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland.  This nation holds $318,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  98. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the southern border for the past 389 days and it’s been 303 days since she showed up to do the job although she has an excuse at the moment: she is among the pandemic of the vaccinated.  Fully vaxxed, fully boosted, she has COVID-19- yet again– and yet, they still want everyone to undergo vaccination.  F**k them.  Ah, well, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegal alien invaders since New Year’s Day is $739,167,760.  The cost of caring for them since the un-dynamic duo took charge is $42,484,973,503.  Next, the number of illegals pouring into the country this year is 1,181,861.  Finally, the conservative low estimate is 46,613,518.  We suspect the truer numbers are closer to 95-to-135 million illegals which is godawful bad. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  99. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Rep. Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says ‘it’s great news that the judge blocked Joe Biden from ending Title 42.’  Speaking of Title 42, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced a new plan for what happens after Title 42 goes down on May 23, 2022.  Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th district, says that ‘IF Secretary Mayorkas won’t protect the border, he must go.’  We concur.  NOW.  Next, the world-famous ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  Hence, she is unavailable to do her job which she seemingly NEVER does.

[ii] Mike Finnigan played with Dave Mason for quite a few years.  You can find the albums when we promoted the music of Traffic: we began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,289 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,534 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 460 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  81. 2022 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.688 per gallon, $4.098 in Florida, $5.237 in Hawaii, and $4.688 in Washington state.[xx]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Minnesota- $3.880.  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 27th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Tunisia: $2.933 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,408,641,475,616 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the Chi-Coms the THIRD largest holder of U.S. debt is the United Kingdom.  This nation holds $440,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  82. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– In a major embarrassment for the American people, our pathetic strumpet of a vice president, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, has been in charge of the ongoing border disaster for 388 days.  Worse than that, this pole-climbing bag of bulls**t has not shown up to do her job in 302 days.  Absolutely disgusting.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens since New Year’s Day 2022 is $732,695,495.  Next, the cost of caring for the Biblical deluge of illegal aliens since senile Joe and “Kooky” assumed office is $42,478,501,238.  The conservative low estimate of illegal alien invaders who have swarmed across the border since the first day of the year is 1,170,603.  Shocking and simply unsustainable.  The conservative LOW-LOW-LOW estimate of illegal aliens devouring resources meant for the American people is 46,602,260.  We believe the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million but given the way things are going, it could soon be 100-130 million which is even worse.  Round ‘em up, load ‘em aboard every available means of transport and get them the f**k out of the country.  NOW.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

114. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2022

27. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews. The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.

However, the defenders in these buildings either fight to the death or retreat through pre-cut holes in walls or into the sewers to fight another day.

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 209

114. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2022:

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Peter Vivian Daniel; U.S. Secretary of Defense Louis A. Johnson; Badfinger featuring Pete Ham, Blondie featuring Nigel Harrison, Creedence Clearwater Revival featuring Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, “Diamond Dogs” by David Bowie, and the Electric Prunes featuring Preston Ritter:

  1. 858 Wednesday: St. Nicholas I succeeds the 104th Pope Benedict III to become the 105th Roman Catholic Pope.
  2. 1061 Wednesday: An English monk predicts that England will suffer destruction thanks to the passage of Haley’s Comet by the Earth.

  6. 1762 Saturday: Russia and Prussia sign a treaty of peace.
  7. 1784 Saturday: The future 28th associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court- Peter Vivian Daniel- was born in Stafford County, Virginia, on this date.  A Democrat, he was appointed to the nation’s high court by President Martin Van Buren to fill the seat vacated by 25th Associate Justice Philip Pendleton Barbour.  Daniel served on the Supreme Court from 01-10-1842 to 05-31-1860 when he died.
  8. 1792 Tuesday: Captain Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle composed the national anthem of France, “La Marseillaise,” on this date.
  9. 1800 Thursday: Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress and President John Adams signed it into being, which appropriates $5,000 to purchase “such books as may be necessary for use of Congress.”

  11. 1833 Wednesday: The creator of the soda fountain received a patent for the device.
  12. 1867 Wednesday: Black demonstrators stage ride-ins on Richmond, Virginia, streetcars.
  13. 1877 Tuesday: In defense of Romania, Russia declares war on the Ottoman Empire.  Meanwhile, the last Federal occupation troops withdraw from the South, departing through New Orleans, Louisiana, for home.  This would open the door to horrendous actions by Southern Democrats and their allies, the Ku Klux Klan.  Every Black American needs to recall who the REAL villains in their mistreatment were and have been: the two groups above are responsible for their persecution and for Jim Crow/Segregation laws.
  14. 1884 Thursday: In Atlanta, Georgia, the Black National Physicians Organization organizes.
  15. 1889 Wednesday: Thomas Edison and his business advisors organized the Edison General Electric Company.

  19. 1915 Saturday: What’s regarded as the start of the Armenian Genocide began as the Ottoman Empire rounded up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople.  Although persecutions against Christians had been ongoing since Turkey joined the Central Powers- German Empire, Austro-Hungary, and Bulgaria- they were going to step up the pressure, fearful that they would have enemies in their rear areas.  Elsewhere, on the Western Front, the Second Battle of Ypres continues as Germans continue making gains.  On the Eastern Front, the Austro-Hungarians are making headway in the western Ukraine against the Russian bear.
  20. 1916 Monday: Some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Uprising by seizing several key sites in Dublin; however, the British crushed it almost a week later.   The Irish felt that with the British occupiers suffering heavy losses in World War I, this might be a grand opportunity to drive them out of the Emerald Isle.
  21. 1917 Tuesday: Fighting continues to rage in the French countryside as British, French, and German forces throw all they have at one another.  Elsewhere, the Ukraine demands independence from Czarist Russia.
  22. 1918 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the Somme as the Germans continue their all-out offensive to drive the Allies out of the war.  Starvation and lack of medicine is plaguing both sides in this titanic struggle, one that has another 4-5 months to go.   Meanwhile, the British and Turks announce a decision for a prisoner exchange.
  23. 1937 Saturday: In Lima, Ohio, future saxophonist with Blood, Sweat & Tears in 1972- Joe Henderson is born.
  24. 1940 Wednesday: German forces in Norway continue solidifying their positions as reinforcements arrive with which to counter the Brits who are trying to keep Norway free and independent.  However, preparations for the invasion of France continue as Germans continue building their troop strength up, much of it in the heavily wooded Ardennes Forest.
  25. 1941 Thursday: Resistance in Greece is dying as the Germans and their allied Axis troops continue pushing Greek and British defenders back to the southern portion of the country.  In Yugoslavia, resistance is also sputtering to an end.  Elsewhere, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt orders military leaders to keep track of all German Kriegsmarine movements so the information can be forwarded to the British government, on the sly of course, as the U.S. is not yet in the war.
  26. 1942 Friday: The Luftwaffe steps up its attacks against British heritage sites as heavy bombers target sites up and down the eastern coast of Great Britain.  The British are determined to withstand the assault while the Germans are doing their best to bomb them into submission.
  27. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews.  The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.  In response, the Germans begin setting buildings on fire.  However, the defenders in these buildings either fight to the death or retreat through pre-cut holes in walls or into the sewers to fight another day.
  28. 1944 Monday: The first B-29 arrived in Nationalist China, flying ‘over the hump’ of the Himalayas.  Elsewhere, now that Italy is on the Allied side, their warplanes are flying sorties against their former German allies in the Aegean Sea attacking garrisons holding islands and ports.   The Germans respond with violence against Italian prisoners.
  29. 1945 Tuesday: Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, future drummer of both Creedence Clearwater Revival[i] and Creedence Clearwater Revisited, was born in Palo Alto, California, on this date in history.  Meanwhile in World War II, the Soviets continue their pincer movement around Berlin as one army begins fighting into the suburbs from the South while from the east, another is pummeling its way into the city from that direction.  Germans are still able to enter and exit the city at this time as the Soviets have not yet sealed the city off on all sides.  Hitler has a chance to fly out but won’t take it- or so we believe.
  30. 1949 Sunday: Future drummer of the psychedelic rock band, the Electric Prunes- Preston Ritter- is born on this date.[ii]
  31. 1951 Tuesday: Nigel Harrison—future bassist with the New York rock band, Blondie[iii] (1978-82 / 1997)—is born in Stockport, Cheshire, England, on this date.
  32. 1952 Thursday: Raymond Burr made his TV acting debut on the Gruen Guild Playhouse in an episode titled, “The Tiger.”
  33. 1953 Friday: British statesman Winston Churchill was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.
  34. 1954 Saturday: After the heavy fighting on and around Huguette 6 last night and early this morning, French commanders in Dien Bien Phu understand that they no longer have the manpower on hand to launch major counterattacks against their communist opponents.  Losses last night were fierce with the loss of several units whose survivors were cobbled together into a new unit.   According to author Martin Windrow, morale was once again flagging on both sides as French defenders had been going with little sleep, few hot meals, and hardly any baths now for 45 days while the communists were scraping up reserves from across the countryside and trying to reinvigorate them for the third phase of the battle.  Casualties were horrendous for both sides. 
  35. 1961 Monday: Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles Dodgers struck out 18 batters, becoming the first major-league pitcher to do so on two separate occasions.  Elsewhere, President John F. Kennedy accepted ‘sole responsibility’ for the disaster HE set in motion at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba.  He committed Cuban exiles to action to overthrow Fidel Castro and then in their hour of need, he abandoned them to death or to long prison terms in Cuban prisons.  
  36. 1962 Tuesday: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology achieved the first satellite relay of a television signal, using NASA’s Echo 1 balloon satellite to bounce a video image from Camp Parks, California, to Westford, Massachusetts.
  37. 1963 Wednesday: In the 17th NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 4 games to 2.

  43. 1971 Saturday: In Tampa, Florida, heavyweight boxer Earnie Shavers scores a TKO at the 0:33 second mark of Round 4 in a scheduled 10-round heavyweight bout over opponent, Willie Johnson.  This put Shavers’ record to 25-2.
  44. 1973 Tuesday: Albert Sabin reported that herpes viruses were factors in nine kinds of cancer.
  45. 1974 Wednesday: The NFL grants a franchise team to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Meanwhile, David Bowie[v] released “Diamond Dogs.”

Bush broke it; he now owns it.
  54. 2005 Sunday: Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger undergoes inauguration as the 265th pope of the Roman Catholic Church, taking the papal name of Benedict XVI.   Meanwhile, in Kuwait, 7,000 angry Bengali workers storm the Bangladeshi embassy demanding redress for unpaid wages.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia arrest 40 Pakistani Christians brazenly practicing their faith in Riyadh.  NOT good, folks, not good…for them.

  56. 2007 Tuesday: Hamas decides to do what it does best today: terrorism.  They launch a barrage of missiles, rockets, and mortar shells into neighboring Israel.  Scumbags.  Use neutron bombs on this human garbage to cleanse the region of their pestilence.  Elsewhere, Kevin Tillman, brother of NFL star and slain soldier in the Afghan War Pat Tillman, testifies before Congress accusing the Bush administration of manipulating his ‘friendly fire’ death into something with which to increase recruitment and support for the ongoing regime change wars.
  57. 2008 Thursday: Following the recent destruction of a nuclear facility in Syria by the Israelis, the United States reports that North Korean technicians helped the Syrians build the reactor.  Good thing the Israelis blew it up.  Meanwhile, following Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s BIG WIN in Pennsylvania this past Tuesday, she has raked in $10 million in donations.  Both she and her opponent, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, are focusing their attentions on Indiana, the next big state in the primary battles.  Elsewhere, the United Nations is crying that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing them from getting aid to the Palestinians.
  58. 2009 Friday: Not to be outdone by terrorists in Iraq yesterday, slavering jihadis carry out yet another suicide bombing in Baghdad, killing at least 80 people and wounding or crippling another 125.  Time to start lighting up the terrorists, we say, “Use neutron bombs, send these scumbags straight to hell.”  Elsewhere, North Korea plans to try two Current TV journalists they claim were on the soil, but evidence shows they were on the Chinese side of the Yalu River and were kidnapped by the North Koreans.  WTF?

  61. 2012 Tuesday: The Obama-controlled Pentagon is creating a new intelligence service, the Defense Clandestine Service that will (supposedly) investigate threats to U.S. national interests coming from nations such as North Korea, the Chi-Coms, and Iran.  Good.  Just what we need.  Another flipping spy agency in the hands of Barack Hussein Obama.  Meanwhile, Al-Jazeera reports that the case against imprisoned Pfc. Bradley Manning must be thrown out due to prosecutorial misconduct.
  62. 2013 Wednesday: Americans learn the FBI and CIA had previous intelligence from Russia warning U.S. intelligence agencies about Tamerlane Tsarnaev’s extremist connections before the Boston Marathon bombings.   Meanwhile, in Manchester, Illinois, a mass shooting occurs leaving five dead and another one or two injured.  As police track down the shooter and engage, the gunman is killed.
  63. 2014 Thursday:  The Federal Communications Commission moves away from the idea of net neutrality, in which all Internet users can equally access and view content; the agency instead proposes to allow large companies to pay Internet service providers for access to faster streaming “lanes.”  Meanwhile, it sounds like President Barack Hussein Obama, aka the Bamster, listened to us yesterday.  He is blasting Russian dictator Vladimir Putin for waging a war of aggression in the Ukraine and is threatening additional sanctions on Moscow.
  64. 2015 Friday: As the civil war continues raging in Yemen, UNICEF reports that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of children have been slain, wounded, or maimed for life in the savage fighting there.  Iran is meddling in this war, stirring up trouble for the Saudis and the rest of the Sunni world.  They believe that if they can bring Shias to power in Yemen, they will have the Kingdom nearly surrounded.
  65. 2016 Sunday: With the U.S. silent about the upcoming joint military exercises with South Korea, North Korea moves up 300 ballistic missile launchers near the demilitarized zone on the chance they may have to go to war with both the U.S. and their southern neighbors.  Speaking of President Obama, he says the U.S. won’t be deploying ground troops to Syria and sadly, he believes the last nine months of his time in office will not see ISIS defeated.  (Note- because YOU never tried, Bamster).
  66. 2017 Monday: Arkansas puts their thumb in the eyes of the leftists as it becomes the first state to execute NOT one murderer but two on the same day, something that has not occurred since 2000.  Convicted murderers Jack Jones Jr. and Marcel Williams meet their Maker via lethal injection.
  67. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump hosts his first state dinner for visiting French President Emanuel Macron.  Elsewhere, according to IFPI, streaming music service sales overtake that of CDs, LPs, and tapes.  Such a shame but young people are extremely unintelligent when it comes to sound quality.  Elsewhere, Thailand raises its hand and suggests that it would like to hold the upcoming summit between the United States and North Korea.
  68. 2019 Wednesday: “Brave Leader” Kim Jong Un arrives in Vladivostok, Russia, aboard his armored private train for his first meetings with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.  The talks will begin tomorrow.  Speaking of the ‘Brave Leader,’ four of his foreign ministry officials underwent execution over his failed second summit with President Donald J. Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, back in February.  Accused of handing over sensitive information to the Americans, these unlucky four were lucky enough that all they faced was the firing squad and not some bizarre other form of execution dreamed up by Chairman Kim Jong Un.

  76. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has been sharing photos on One America News (and probably other news networks as well) of ILLEGAL ALIENS being removed from holding pens and hotels along the border and dumped into airports in the region for transport to other parts of the country.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is being slammed, rightfully so, seeing as how 30 days have passed and the so-called ‘Border Czar’ has been nowhere near the flipping border.  WTF?   In other perplexing news, ICE ends placing fines on illegal aliens.  WTF about this, too?  
  77. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden News I– White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- not the brightest bulb in the pack to be sure- says that drooling old Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress will likely NOT have many attendees as we are all observing COVID-19 restrictions. Yeah, right.  Sure.  Flipping old Joe is going to be swinging at a lot of balls but connecting with very few of them so we cannot have anyone observing the senile old coot too closely. 
  78. 2021 Saturday H: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– As Democrats continue trying to throw roadblocks in the path of the Maricopa County, Arizona’s recount and election integrity efforts, Steve Bannon asks an incredibly simple question: WHAT ARE THE DEMS AFRAID OF?  That’s it in a nutshell, what the f**k are the Democrats trying to prevent the American people seeing?   Meanwhile President Donald J. Trump calls on Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, to provide not only more support to the ongoing effort to achieve election integrity but also security so that it can proceed without rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth liberal lunatics trying to halt it.  President Trump questions WHY Democrats are so determined to STOP the ongoing efforts to find out what the hell happened in the early morning hours after Election Day 2020 and also says, the ‘results will be startling.’
  79. 2021 Saturday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Indonesia announced today that their missing submarine is presumed lost and the crew dead.  How sad.  This is a horrible tragedy.  Next, Palestinians are behaving like they always do- like a bunch of Untermensch, this time in Jerusalem for the 11th night in a row.  Alas, what is their problem?  Well, since the start of Ramadan, they have been running amok in Jerusalem, causing Israeli Defense Forces to launch a harsh crackdown on the human garbage.  Meanwhile, their brethren across the border began firing rockets into Israel.  Sounds like someone is looking for a major ass-whooping, yet again.   Next, Southeast Asian nations have reached some sort of consensus over the crisis in Myanmar.  Hmmm, what are they going to do about it?  Finally, an avalanche near the Indo-Sino border sees 8 people killed but another 384 rescued.   Elsewhere, at least 27-30 people are dead in a Baghdad COVID-19 hospital blaze (probably set by jihadists being the kind, loving people they are).
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Social Media News–  President Donald J. Trump discussed his removal from Facebook and Twitter and notes that BOTH are extremely boring and that issuing press releases is much more elegant and informative.  Next, Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame presented his third program on the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election today, “Absolute Interference,” which is a mind-blower to see just how deep the hacks by the Chi-Coms were.  Lindell showed so much evidence that we do indeed hope that it ends up before the U.S. Supreme Court where- IF Chief Justice John Roberts does not behave as he normally does- things might change.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: COVID-19 News / Updates– It appears that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for the Chi-Vi will soon be back online, even though continued reports of deaths and intensified menstrual cycles continue to predominate the news cycle.   Next, a new MIT study questions the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci dictates regarding wearing of masks and maintaining social distancing from fellow human beings.   MIT questions whether social distancing works while Republicans demand evidence from the Centers for Disease Control regarding the need for children but especially children under the age of TWO to wear flipping masks.  NO evidence says they should.   
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News I– First, an Oklahoma police officer, Nathan Ronan of the Lawton PD who was at the center of a deadly shooting has been cleared of ALL charges.  Next, the NYPD is searching for a gangbanging POS who drug one of theirs by a speeding vehicle before dumping him off in the streets.   Next, a guy in the Lone Star State was arrested after shooting a police officer in the shoulder.   Moving on, in the era of feeble old Joe Biden yet another gun crime occurs, this one on Bourbon Street in New Orleans in the wee hours of the morning where five people were shot (but none so far have died).   
  83. 2021 Saturday M: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News II– Elsewhere, convicted murderer Derek Chauvin (whom we still believe is going to be cleared of all charges provided he is not shivved between here and there) could face added charges for an arrest back in 2017.  Boy, the radical left hates to let go, like a dog humping one’s pantleg.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice has charged five people for defrauding Medicare of $65 million over the back brace scheme we think everyone has heard at least one sales pitch on the phone at one time or another.  Good.  Send them to prison, those ads were annoying.  Finally, Jeffrey Epstein’s close associate and procurer Ghislaine Maxwell pleads NOT guilty to loads more charges of sex trafficking.
  84. 2021 Saturday N: State News– Former Trump associate Mike Egan is running for the Texas 6th congressional district seat in a special election next month.   Elsewhere, Alabama passes a law that will allow student athletes to profit off their images and likenesses.   Next, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte, Republican, signed a bill that NULLIFIES all restrictions on guns.  However, the Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, Democrat, vetoed a bill that would lower the age for concealed carry firearm permits to 18.  That one is okay unless of course the individual is in law enforcement or the U.S. military.   Meanwhile, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, shared an update with his voters about his remaining eye’s condition.  He hopes to have vision restored and for him to be back on the job.
  85. 2021 Saturday O: Stupid News Of The Day– In crazy news of the day, the fossilized mummy Joe Biden says, ‘MORE troops are heading to Afghanistan even though he claims- we repeat, CLAIMS- U.S. troops are coming home on September 11, 2021.’  Wow.  These people simply do not want to leave the flipping country.  Let the Chi-Coms have ‘em.   Meanwhile, as the Chi-Vi pandemic ebbs and flows, toilet paper prices are beginning to return to normal and supplies are hitting all-time highs.   In other STUPID news, an unnamed member of the Biden regime claims that U.S. sanctions on Russia are having their desired effect because the Russians ‘went home.’  Don’t count on it…next, Portland, Oregon, declare yet another riot after Antifa burns down a Boys & Girls Club.  When are you going to start shooting these scumbags?  A little bit of lead will stop the rioting like that.  BOOM!
  86. 2021 Saturday P: Miscellaneous News I– Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO-LA, says, ‘the GOP infrastructure bill will provide more for less.’  Next, Representative Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district says that Joe Biden’s ‘New Deal’ hurts poor people the most.  Next conservative icon Ari Hoffman is taking over the helm at Seattle’s KVI radio station.   Moving on, George P. Bush is eyeing primarying Texas AG Ken Paxton.  Please- NO MORE BUSHES!  Enough with the Bush Family.   George P. Bush also says, ‘Texas is pushing back hard against the Biden regime’s orders.’  Wow.  Next, Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district says that the Dems have exposed their agenda by trying to make Washington, D.C. into the 51st state.’  Amen.

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of the Electric Prunes within the next 5-10 years.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iv] We should have shot down this POS satellite.

[v] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

  57. 2004 Friday: Crazed Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr declares he will employ suicide bombers against U.S. troops should they make a move on his militias in the city of Najaf.  American and Coalition invaders are overrunning parts of the country in their quest for ‘weapons of mass destruction’ and then stamping out jihadis that the Shiites are preparing to begin lashing back at the so-called “Crusaders.”

  61. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  62. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  63. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  64. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.
  65. 2012 Monday: The trial of former senator and vice-presidential candidate John Edwards for misuse of campaign funds gets underway in North Carolina.  Elsewhere, famed bassist Chris Ethridge who played with the Flying Burrito Brothers[xi] (1968-69 / 1974-76 / 1990-93)—among other bands—lost his battle with pancreatic carcinoma on this date.  He died in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi, at the age of 65.  Next, the Iranians are angry because a malware attack has hammered the National Iranian Oil Company.  Sucks to be you.  Finally, the White House is launching an investigation into its advance staff in the wake of the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
  66. 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
  67. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  68. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  69. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, which would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  70. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University, and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  71. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  72. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease, but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  73. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland. 
  74. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 144,804,485 confirmed cases, +799,197, 3,073,868  confirmed deaths, +11,781, and 83,220,681 confirmed recoveries, +650,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,717,457 confirmed cases, UP 48,336 from yesterday’s reporting, 584,839 confirmed deaths, UP 10,421, (figures include today’s and yesterday’s)[xii] and 119,056,391 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.[xiii] 
  75. 2021 Friday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 260,967 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  76. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,727,713 confirmed cases, 61,261 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,196,502 confirmed cases, 34,759 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,977 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Idaho, one of the few sane places left in the country: they have 186,081 confirmed cases, 2,029 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]   
  77. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,892 confirmed cases, 6,346 confirmed deaths, and 829,424 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian nations on the globe: 247,989 cases of the virus, 3,496 confirmed deaths and 185,107 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    
  78. 2021 Friday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,043.49, UP 227.59 points (+0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,016.81, UP 198.40 points (+1.44%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,180.17, UP 45.19 points (+1.09%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.04 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,776.70 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.05 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,232.00 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.08%).[xvi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,855.15 per troy oz, +18.52 (+0.65%).[xvii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xviii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 107.91 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71.[xix]  
  79. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.981 per gallon, $2.802 in Florida, $3.760 in Hawaii, and $3.401 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $2.822.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,205,305,997,186 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  80. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.   Elsewhere, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, said that the illegal alien brats are in OBAMA-BIDEN CAGES and NOT Trump cages.  
  81. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden News I– Drooling Joe Biden found himself for being mocked as at his recent ‘climate summit’ with world leaders via ZOOM, he was the ONLY leader wearing a mask.  Ye gods, Joe, what the hell is wrong with you?  Dimwit.   Anyhow, when Joe concluded his summit, he said with gasping vigor, “We’re gonna do this.”  Big flipping deal, Joe.  Do it to yourself, NOT to us.  Next, totally whacked White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki crowed that ‘Joe Biden will be the first president to create 1,000,000 jobs in his first 100 days.’  Oh, please, stop it, we are laughing as hard as we can already.  Enough, dimwit!  Moving on, Joe Biden told Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he is going to call ‘the Armenian massacre a GENOCIDE.’  As it was, the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE the Ottoman Turks carried out against the Christian Armenian minority in their country during World War I.  (Note- it would appear that via this action, Joe is pushing yet another dictatorial nation into the Chi-Com-Russian-Iranian-North Korean-Cuban-Venezuelan camp for good.  Good going there, Joe).
  82. 2021 Friday H: Energy News / Infrastructure News– Much to the horror of liberals, 73-percent of Americans recently polled believe that fossil fuels and natural gas will be with us for decades to come.  Yes, people are interested in renewable energy but until it becomes cost effective and dependable, no one wants this crap.[xxii]  Meanwhile, a new report says that a new proposed gasoline tax is meeting with resistance on BOTH sides of the political aisle.   After the GOP put forth a sensible and less costly infrastructure bill and the left slapped it down, Senator Johnson said it’s all ‘partisanship and not concern for the American people.’  Speaking of infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., says that ‘Joe Biden should concentrate on CONVENTIONAL infrastructure’ and not this WOKE bulls**t.
  83. 2021 Friday I: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– Early today, Democrats began suing the state of Arizona for permitting the election integrity audit to begin and continue.  Later in the day, a judge called a temporary halt to the procedures for some inexplicable reason, but then permitted it to proceed late in the day.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that his team is advancing election integrity efforts across the country.  Elsewhere, New Hampshire passed SB 43 with which to carry out a forensic audit of the voting machines.  Citing the Windham Incident, in this one location, 1,143 ballots for Republicans were magically flipped over to Democrats.  These investigations are necessary.    
  84. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, RINO, is slamming the inclusion of Iran- perhaps one of the greatest persecutors of women and girls- onto the U.N. Status of Women Commission.  What a load of feculent crap to put a scumbag nation such as Iran on a global body such as the one mentioned above.   Meanwhile, following Tony Perkins- of Family Research Council fame- calling for a boycott on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chi-Coms now are trying to cancel him.  Permanently.    Elsewhere, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny is going to end his hunger strike.  Finally, Japan is declaring a state of emergency around Tokyo and three other areas due to surging numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  85. 2021 Friday K: Mass Shooting News / Law Enforcement News–  We learned that late last night in San  Diego, California, a mass shooting left one person dead and at least four injured.  We learned today that NBC once again rejiggered audio from the recent police shooting of Ma’ Khia Bryant who was in the act of stabbing another girl with an eight-inch blade.  As they did with George Zimmerman’s 911 call regarding Trayvon Martin, they edited and fabricated the police call so as to suit their narrative.  Folks, these lying scumbag networks should be fined and/or stripped of their broadcast licenses.   Meanwhile, Nicolas Cruz, the POS who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida back on February 14, 2018, in what we have dubbed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018- could go on trial for his life as early as this September.  (Note- we thought he had already copped to a deal).   Elsewhere, an alternate juror in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin says ‘yes, indeed, the mob intimidate us into finding the way we did.’  This verdict is going to get tossed.  Count on it.
  86. 2021 Friday L: Social Media And Stupid People News– After that big POS Los Angeles Lakers dimwit LeBron “Fecal Matter” James put up his most recent tweet about the cop who shot violent teen Ma’ Kia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, a few days ago, President Donald J. Trump says the turd should ‘focus on his NBA career rather than presiding over the destruction of the National Basketball League.’  LeBron James clearly learned nothing in school and worse, he is down on his knees in front of Xi Jinping doing the nasty for him every day.  C***sucker.  Speaking of LeBron and social media, millions are asking WHY Twitter banned President Donald J. Trump for ‘inciting violence’ while all the while permitting King James to make threats of his own via the platform?  Why?
  87. 2021 Friday M: COVID-19 News / Updates– Today, 33 colleges said that in order to return to classes in the next semester, ALL students will have to show proof they have been vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – with the help of Border Guru Stephen Miller- is suing the Biden administration over its hypocrisy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of illegals without testing them for the ‘VID while demanding states continue the bogus lockdowns the federal government imposes on them (if it can get away with doing it).  Moving on, the U.S. will now permit the use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations to proceed.  However, this comes on the heels of the CDC investigation yet another woman’s death- someone in her fifties- following vaccination for the Chi-Vi.
  88. 2021 Friday N: U.S. Government News– Ahead of their planned pull out, U.S. military is packing up its military hardware in Afghanistan while leaving non-military supplies such as office equipment and appliances behind for the Taliban to put to effective use.   In other truly embarrassing news, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, a true milquetoast if one ever existed, is going to permit U.S. diplomatic missions abroad to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag at the same level with the U.S. flag around the world.  Gee whiz, paint another target on our backs, will you?  Meanwhile, the Biden White House is nominating a ‘conservationist’- Tracy Stone-Manning- to lead the Public Lands Bureau.  Another left-wing loser to be sure.  Finally, SpaceX Dragon capsule blasted off today carrying FOUR American astronauts to the International Space Station.
  89. 2021 Friday O: January 06, 2021, Storming The Capitol / Capitol Hill Riots / False Flag Operations News– It appears that Capitol Hill law enforcement has grown fatigued by lying Democrats’ narratives on what happened on that fateful day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrated the ranks of Trump supporters and then set in motion the largest FALSE FLAG operation seen in the history of our country.  They are pushing back on recent claims by unnamed Democrats that they showed ‘bias towards the Trump supporters.’  They say they did not.   Elsewhere, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is demanding a FULL ACCOUNTING of the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick, someone whom we just learned died from natural causes and did not- we repeat, did NOT- have his head bashed in with a fire extinguisher as liberal fake news media and Democrat politicians have long claimed.   Tell us the truth.
  90. 2021 Friday P: State News–  Florida’s Supreme Court stopped a bid with which to legalize marijuana in the Sunshine State.  Good.  We have enough stupid people already.   Elsewhere, in California, Caitlyn Jenner makes it official- she is running for the governor’s job in the recall of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and some like that overweight, wig-wearing Joy Behar on “The View” are upset.  She was so upset, she kept using the wrong pronouns when speaking of Ms. Jenner which in the liberal WOKE world is a major faux pas.  Yet, liberals routinely get away with NOT doing as they say everyone else should be doing.  What a farce.  Next, in New York City late last night/early this morning, did their best to deface a monument in Central Park, one built to commemorate the loss of 260 U.S. Navy sailors who were killed when the battleship USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, Cuba, on February 15, 1898, the main event that propelled the U.S. into war with Spain.  Police arrested some of the rioters, but we are sure they left the slammer within hours of their arrest.
  91. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new study on elected officials who are the child of elected officials says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, vote to the LEFT of their parents when they were in office.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, said he ‘endorses Senators Murkowski and her RINO buddy, Susan Collins, of Maine.   Next, survivors of the Steve Scalise shooting criticize yesterday’s findings by the FBI that James Hodgkinson who shot up the Republican team preparing for the annual House baseball game back on June 14, 2017, did so because he wanted to die by suicide by cop.  This was the FBI finding we received yesterday and all we can say is that FBI Director Christopher Wray is full of fecal matter.
  92. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that New York state’s planned payments of $15,000 or more to illegal aliens is ‘unacceptable.’  It’s unacceptable when Americans need help, require salvation from all the Chi-Com Virus lockdowns and restrictions, and liberal left-wing government would rather care for INVADERS than for its own people.   Next, Kimberly Guilfoyle endorses former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens in his U.S. Senate bid.   Moving on, Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, vetoed a bill limiting gun restrictions.  He vetoed a bill that LIMITS restrictions on guns in the Natural State, for Christ’s Sake.   The man has demonstrated he is little more than a RINO.
  93. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Apparently, the President Trump 2020 Campaign left an unpaid view in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a $211,000 bill, one they are sending to collections.  Sounds like bull crap but then- we know how it is.  Speaking of President Trump, he may be leaving Florida to spend the summer at his New Jersey golf club.   Speaking of Florida, the okays a bill banning abortions based on disability.  Meanwhile, we learn that the United States Postal Service- the USPS, for Christ’s Holy Sake!- is now doing dirty work for the Biden regime by spying on conservative Americans.  Man, they must have amassed a humongous dossier on the AICPENDBLOG.COM by now.  What the hell is the postal service doing behaving like the Gestapo?  Has Stamps.com hurt them this much that they must take on jobs that have NOTHING to do with their daytime jobs?
  94. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News I– After a violent summer last year in \Minneapolis, Minnesota, BLACK-OWNED businesses in the city say the ‘city has abandoned them.’  These poor people watched Black Lives Matter and Antifa and all the hateful white punks (especially the banshees) screaming and rioting, looting, robbing, raping, and burning, and the damned Twin Cities need to do something to get them back on their feet!  What the hell does it take?  Where the hell is Patrice Cullors and all her millions of dollars?  Where is Joe Biden?  HELP these people.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post was slammed earlier today for their disgraceful ‘fact-checking’ on Senator Tim Scott’s ‘from the cotton fields to Congress’ statement awhile back.  Leftists are scumbags, what more can one say?  In other whack-job news, Climate Czar John F. Kerry says that the administration is exploring a BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX that will slap additional taxes, i.e., tariffs, on nations with weaker climate policies.  Folks, it’s time to make up NICE with Russia or China and seek asylum.  These people are cray-cray.
  95. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1653: 04, 28, 29,30, 60, and Mega 25.  Stay tuned for news on the winners… Out of 111,596 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $14,862 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,023 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,268 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 458 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.
