Currently, Joe is shy 180,827 deaths.   Now that the CDC says it’s ‘okay’ for kids aged 12-15 to get the shots, the Biden regime is urging parents to rush their children to the nearest drug store to get their immunizations for the Bat Fu Yuk out of Wuhan, communist China.    
  66. 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: 3,763,165 confirmed cases, 62,463 confirmed deaths, and 2,006,829 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,278,549 confirmed cases, 35,897 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,556 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,376 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 420,192 confirmed cases, 5,663 confirmed deaths, and 203,994 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Military: they have 291,757 confirmed cases, 348 confirmed deaths, and 278,457 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  69. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.112 per gallon, $2.886 in Florida, $3.840 in Hawaii, and $3.522 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.820.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Egypt: $2.114 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,278,809,428,671 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.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 50 for ‘Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the border.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues the so-called ‘controversial’ Title 42 implemented by President Donald J. Trump back in March 2020 to close the southern border over Bat Fu Yuk concerns to all but the most essential travel.  People are asking where “Kooky Kamala” stands on the Biden regime continuing the Trump policy?  (Note- we all believe that the border remains wide open and that armies of illegal aliens continue pouring across it which is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, lining the border with minefields, laying in foo gas pits, building anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, and \anti-boat obstacles,  as well as to station fast-response units along the border.  We also believe that U.S. Special Forces MUST carry out targeted assassinations of human traffickers, smugglers, and other criminals operating along our southern border).  (Additional note- NO matter what these lying Biden regime officials say, people are still flooding across the southern border.  Period.  In April, more than 178,000 illegals were apprehended crossing the border while 6,000 illegal aliens per day are being released into the interior of the country.  Hunting licenses anyone?).[xxi]
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fighting between the Israelis and the human fecal matter in Gaza continues, thanks to the Biden regime sending billions to the Iranians and millions to the Palestinian terrorists.  Missiles are crisscrossing the border with at least 55 dead, most of whom are Palestinians.[xxii]  The Israelis have launched targeted missile strikes on the Islamic National Bank and the Finance Ministry in Gaza leveling both buildings to the ground.  Speaking of the Iranians, so-called ‘Climate Czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry swore today that he NEVER informed the Iranians of Israeli covert ops in Syria.  The Iranians claim otherwise.  Still, the Biden regime is sending a flunky from the U.S. State Department to broker some sort of peace deal between the warring sides.  Good luck.  (Note- at least befuddled old Joe says that ‘Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.  Exceptionally good, Joe, exceptionally good).
  72. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Joe Biden’s erratic policies according to a new report are giving the Chi-Coms the ‘edge’ over the United States.  We concur.  In another surprise news, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is sanctioning a Chi-Com official, Yu Hui, who USED to hold office that allowed him to persecute the Falun Gong and other religious minorities.  Wow.  Next, Secretary Blinken stressed ‘U.S. resolve’ to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  We bet Mr. Lavrov was trembling in his shoes.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– A new report says that thanks to the Chi-Coms and their release of the ‘VID around the world and to the United States, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. went back up in 2020.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is raising questions about events that have become commonplace during the China Virus pandemic such as lockdowns and restrictions, especially on religious liberties.  Elsewhere, a panel agreed that the WHO- the World Health Organization- should have greater latitude in investigating the origins of pandemics.  Currently, the WHO is in the pocket of the Beijing Bullies.  Moving on, the Buckeye State is giving vaccinated citizens the opportunity to win a lottery of $1 million.  They hope everyone will rush out to get the vaccine.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– White House reporters are lambasting the Biden regime over its lack of transparency.  Dumb asses, listen up!  First, Joe Biden can only get it together once or twice a week.  The man is senile.  Second, what you see is a continuation of the Obama-Biden regime that shut out the news media, conducted its own in-house photography sessions, and even spied and jailed reporters.  YOU OWN THIS.  They are unhappy that the White House comm team edits all quotes before they go to press.  Wow.  Sounds like Joseph Goebbels is somewhere behind the scenes…Elsewhere, 120 former U.S. military and Department of Defense officials are warning about the peril our country faces as well as that from Joe Biden’s mental fitness (or lack of it).
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Biden regime is going to provide federal COVID-19 relief aid to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, Joe Biden is going full-blown Cloward and Piven by pushing his $4.1 trillion spending bill.  He said to the BIG FOUR House and Senate leaders- Kevin McCarthy and “Cocaine  Mitch” McConnell on the right side of the aisle and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- that all he has to do is ‘to snap his (flaccid) fingers and so it shall be.’  Whoa, Joe, whoa. The GOP leaders told ‘Forgetful Joe’ moments later that ‘raising taxes on the American people is a nonstarter.’  
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  According to Newsmax, prosecutors in the Derek Chauvin case asked for an ‘upward departure’ which means that they want Chauvin to get more time than he originally would have due to the fact that he abused his power.  The judge in the case agreed and made a ruling that will allow the sentence to become harsher both for him and the other three officers awaiting trial.   Meanwhile, the POS shooter who opened up in Times Square, New York City, a few days ago and shot three people including a young child was apprehended down in Florida. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Last night, she was running her mouth and today, she is still running her mouth.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, was voted out as House GOP conference chair.  She went to the mics after being humiliated and said she ‘will work to make sure that President Donald J. Trump NEVER gets close to the White House ever again.’  WTF is wrong with you, Liz?  Just cross over to the Democrat side of the aisle, you and your father were NEVER flipping Republicans, you frigging moron.[xxiii]  Ret. Col. Denton Knapp says, ‘Cheney’s ouster was justified.’  Correct.  She is not a team player.  However, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the ‘House GOP will advance with a unified conservative vision’ as the real battle is winning the House (and Senate) back in 2022.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– Yet another Democrat domino topples, this time new tax records show that a former staffer for Senator Dianne “The Disoriented” Feinstein- Daniel Jones who runs the ultra-left-wing, pro-Marxist TDIP, aka the Democracy Integrity Project, colluded with George Soros, the globalist former Nazi now a pro-communist scumbag to fund the so-called ‘Steele Dossier,’ the phony document with which the Democrats went after President Donald J. Trump.  It is amazing as to how as time passes; more information comes to light that continues to show just what an evil, bogus sham investigation the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert S. Mueller III was.  NOTHING BUT CRAP.  Meanwhile, Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, considered to be most at risk in next year’s elections, blasts the Biden regime’s economic policies as being bad for the Granite State.  Wise up, Joe.  Even members of your party are preparing to swim against the current.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Two far-left Democratic-Socialist senators, “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, Hawaii, and “Creepy Cory” Booker, New Jersey, are planning to set up a ‘new caucus’ in the haloed halls of Congress (yeah, right), the BIPOC- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color caucus.  Wow.  Big deal.  ONLY Democrats who are ‘black, indigenous, and people of color’ will qualify while Republicans who identify with those same groups will be kept at arm’s length as though they have B.O.  What a load of crap.  Still, look at the two losers setting it up and we mean LOSERS, with a capital “L.”  Elsewhere, H.R. 1 is stuck in a Senate committee.  We hope it remains there as though it’s in a tar pit.
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: National Security News– The federal government is easing restrictions in 12 states with which to combat the gasoline shortages thanks to the cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline that runs from Texas through 16 other states ending up in Maine.  Yet, the feds do not seem to want to address the hack, claiming it’s a confidential business matter.  Uh-huh.  Experts claim that the cyberattack exposes the lack of required defenses protecting pipelines such as the Colonial pipeline.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

As we said yesterday, manager and father Murray Wilson was keeping the Beach Boys at a frenetic pace.  The band’s fourth album, “Little Deuce Coupe,” came out on October 07, 1963, and was a repackaging of sorts of the band’s hot rod songs plus loads of other new tunes.  Brian Wilson was writing at a lightning pace and the tunes were all great to be sure.  Featured here are “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Be True to Your School,” “Shut Down,” “Spirit of America,” and “A Young Man is Gone.”  The band features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and Alan Jardine (rhythm guitar and vocals), a neighborhood friend like Marks.  This is a wonderful album one we know everyone is going to enjoy so zip on out and add this one to your collection- we think you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

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

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

[iii] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[iv] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[v] 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.

[vi] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

[vii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[viii] See earlier footnote.

[ix] In late 2019- early 2020, the World Health Organization says the COVID-19 strain of this Chinese-engineered POS disease was NOT transmissible between human beings…until it was.

[x] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xxi] Late in the afternoon- and this is a good one- Newsmax ran a Chiron crawl that said, “The Biden administration, (i.e., the regime), is ordering construction on the border wall to begin again.”  Say what?  We cannot believe that mixed-up, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, drooling old Joe Biden has reordered construction on the wall again.  Say what?

[xxii] Interestingly enough, while lunatic members among the House Democrats continue calling for an end of Israel, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi came out and blasted Hamas, the POS terrorist organization that needs to be eliminated from the face of the planet.  Wow.  Didn’t know “Mumbles” had it in her; still, once the AOC Suicide Squad begins tuning “Mumbles” up, she may very well reverse her statement.

[xxiii] President Donald J. Trump released a statement today in which he said he expects to see Liz Cheney become the next paid commentator on CNN or MSNBC.  She will be removed from office in the primary race next year in Wyoming.

[xxiv] Not sure when we will do the music of Jay-Z.

[xxv] We hope to do the music of the Go-Gos one day.  They were awesome.

[xxvi] We hope to do the Foo Fighters when we do Soundgarden, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and maybe even Korn.

[xxvii] Not sure as to when we will do Carole King?  Perhaps in 20 years or so.

[xxviii] We definitely want to do the music of Todd Rundgren and Nazz as well as Aerosmith.

[xxix] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner one day. Maybe she will be included as a solo act.

[xxx] For the hell of it, we may be doing the music of the Monkees sooner- these guys deserve it.

110. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2022

When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately. Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico. The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals. What a day that will be.

  72. 2019 Saturday: Even though the Trump administration is going after ISIS, they still manage to cause damage and in Syria, over the past couple of days they have managed to kill at least 50 Syrian army soldiers and wound numerous others.  Doesn’t say much about the training given them by Russia or Iran.  Meanwhile, much to the dismay of the far-left liberals, the Mueller Report says, “NO Trump-Russia collusion but the possibility of obstruction still exists.’  Elsewhere, Central American illegal aliens trying to get into the United States are saying the Mexicans are abusing them as they hover around the southern border of their country and the United States.’
  73. 2020 Monday: The world continues suffering under the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis that is spreading around the world.  Today, we have 2,458,150 confirmed cases of the disease what with 168,906 confirmed deaths and 643,918 confirmed recoveries.   The Chinese claim 88,423 confirmed cases with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, the United States sees 789,439 confirmed cases what with 42,186 confirmed deaths, and 71,675 confirmed recoveries as of mid-day.  It is interesting to note that China’s figures change little from day to day which suggests they are either lying to the rest of the world or possess the cure which says a lot about communist governments.
  74. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 141,813,257 confirmed cases, +399,077, 3,027,182  confirmed deaths, +7,522, and 81,116,141 confirmed recoveries, +327,427.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,976,092 confirmed cases, UP 108,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 573,551 confirmed deaths, UP 924, and 119,041,372 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii] 
  75. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 248,829 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Meanwhile, a new study suggests that the ‘VID can affect the lungs via the gums.  Elsewhere, the European Union announces it will restart receiving shipments of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine despite reports of RARE BLOOD CLOTS afflicting some recipients of the vaccine.
  76. 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: 3,720,794 confirmed cases, 61,006 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,178,783 confirmed cases, 34,533 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,779 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 388,842 confirmed cases, 5,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kansas, the home of the conservative Midwest: they have 308,518 confirmed cases, 5,005 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  77. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,309 confirmed cases, 6,342 confirmed deaths, and 828,761 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Kuwait, the supposed missing province of Iraq: 258,497 cases of the virus, 1,456 confirmed deaths and 241,696 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    
  78. 2021 Tuesday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,821.30, DOWN 256.33 points (-0.75%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,786.27, DOWN 128.50 points (-0.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,134.94, DOWN 28.32 points (-0.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.42 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,779.20 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.88 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,189.50 per troy oz, -6.80 (-0.57%) while the price of COPPER is $4.20 per pound, -0.01 (-0.21%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,761.73 per troy oz, -49.92 (-1.78%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.72%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.98.     In Icelandic Krona, one greenback equals 125.91 and in Indian Rupee, a buck equals 75.38.[xiii]   
  79. 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 $3.974 per gallon, $2.818 in Florida, $3.749 in Hawaii, and $3.385 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.611.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,193,749,804,750 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.  In other business news, Netflix fails to meet paid subscriber predictions which leads to a subsequent fall in its shares.
  80. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News– Stammering Joe Biden says he ‘hopes the jury in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin reaches the right verdict.’   Next, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob “The Jerk” Frey says, “No matter the verdict, George Floyd died at the hands of the police.”  (Note- the police are under HIS control).   We were wrong: Judge Peter A. Cahill reads the verdicts and Officer Derek Chauvin is convicted on ALL charges.  Officer Chauvin stands to face 40 years in the slammer although esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz believes that Maxine “Prune Face” Waters did enough to cause a mistrial (see below).  In an interesting aside, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, gave a schizophrenic statement thanking ‘George Floyd for dying, for calling out to his mother on camera’ so the Dems could utilize his untimely demise to benefit the ongoing attempt to transform our country into a socialist s**t-hole.
  81. 2021 Tuesday G: Social Media And Big Tech– The United Kingdom is considering launching their own digital currency, the so-called “Britcoin.”  Next, Facebook is developing new audio products, products with which we suspect they will listen in on their users’ conversations.  Elsewhere, Apple is going to permit Parler to be offered in its App Store.  Big flipping deal.  Speaking of Apple, they are going to reveal new products today in a virtual store.
  82. 2021 Tuesday H: RINO News– Not to be outdone by former House Speaker John “Too Much Flipping Tanning Booth” Boehner, former President George W. Bush has to chime in and add his two cents on the modern GOP.  He says the Republican Party is ‘isolationist, protectionist, and nativist,’ lamenting the fact that he failed to get ‘comprehensive immigration reform taken care of when HE was president.’  Sadly, Republicans knew what he and the RINO wing of the GOP meant when they talked about ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ meant amnesty for millions with a pathway to citizenship for all.’  We did not want that then, George, and we don’t want it now and if you want to make sure the Bush Family name remains toxic, continue talking, George.  Voting for another Bush would mean legalizing the illegal and another justice like the loser chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts.   IF Jeb were to run again, yikes, NO MORE BUSHES!
  83. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic-Socialist News– A new poll says that a large majority of the American people are concerned with the fact that Joe Biden appears to be a slobbering idiot much of the time.  We are concerned, too.   Speaking of Joe Biden, a Missouri college student is suing the Biden administration allowing trannys, i.e., chicks with dicks, into female-only college dorms.   Next, Michigan’s GOP announced they had discovered that Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer AND her staff took a secret vacation to Florida while demanding everyone else remain indoors wearing 4-5 masks.   Elsewhere, a new poll demonstrates that white liberals typically have far more mental problems than do everyone else.  We agree with that study.  Meanwhile, as criticism continues rolling in blasting Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, she dismisses it as ‘nothing’ even though she did the same thing that supposedly got President Donald J. Trump impeached a second time.   (Interesting note- “Prune Face” Waters sought a police escort when she landed in Minneapolis to the protest scene so she could stir the pot without having to fear for her safety.  Wow).  Speaking of “Prune Face,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pushing a bill to censure the decrepit old rabble rouser and to remove her from her committee assignments.  Go for it.  (Note- the Democrats blocked this move).
  84. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump says he is considering a run for the White House in 2024.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘Joe Biden turned his back on the people of his state by going after coalminers when 43-percent of the world’s energy is derived from coal.’  This is true, the United States is the ‘Saudi Arabia of coal’ what with the best here such as anthracite and bituminous coal beneath our feet.   Moving on, Senator Marsha Blackburn says that asking for Voter ID is NOT racist.  We agree.  One needs ID for everything else including welfare checks, liquor, and pot purchases, picking up tickets, buying cigarettes, boarding airplanes- unless one is an illegal alien- you name it, you must show ID so WTF?[xvi] 
  85. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Officials in Indiana reveal that laws regarding firearms in their state would have done NOTHING to have stopped the mass shooting at the FedEx facility a week or so ago.  Next, in Arizona, students can now attend school in person and without having to wear face masks.  However, when the state’s mask mandate ends in May, Oregon is considering passing a law that will require faces masks on everyone forever.  That is correct- FOREVER.  Crazy flipping left-wing socialists.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to reinstate the travel ban that protected the nation so well from the Chi-Vi pandemic.   Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, Ohio GOP lawmakers want to rename a state park for the 45th president.   Speaking of befuddled old Joe Biden, he backs a bill to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state.  People, just return the land to Maryland.  Enough!
  86. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News III– The U.S. ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, is coming home for consultations after Joe Biden continues slandering Vladimir Putin.  Speaking of Mr. Putin and Russia, the word from Moscow is ‘IF Joe Biden wants a summit with Mr. Putin, it will depend on U.S. actions.’   Elsewhere, in Florida, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signs a bill that will allow the state to tax $1 billion in online purchases.   Next, North Carolina won’t pass a bill banning youth tranny procedures.  NOT right.  Wait until you’re 18 and then if you wish to destroy your body, it’s ON YOU.   Meanwhile, Willie Nelson is encouraging Joe Biden to make the ‘pot holiday’ an official one.   Finally, like Gary Gilmore in Utah back in 1977, a death row inmate in Nevada, Zane Michael Floyd, wants the option of being executed via firing squad.   Finally, Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti, NOT TO BE OUTDONE BY FELLOW LEFTISTS, is proposing a universal basic income (that ONLY minorities will receive).
  87. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News IV– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that “WOKE” companies will feel a backlash in the aftermath of Major League Baseball withdrawing the All-Star Game and MLB Draft from the Peach State.  Meanwhile, a recent poll says that less than one-third of Americans are aware of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Joe Biden-Russia-Chi-Com connection.
  88. 2021 Tuesday N: Foreign News / Overseas News– Chi-Com President Xi Jinping gives a thinly veiled warning to Joe Biden not to pursue a path of unilateralism.  Meanwhile, General Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, says that ‘pulling out of Afghanistan will make the War on Terror that much more difficult to prosecute.’   Elsewhere, Bill Gates and loads of world leaders will attend the ‘Biden climate summit.’  This should be fun to watch.  Next, Russia’s defense minister says, ‘U.S. actions in the Black Sea are becoming increasingly provocative.’  We would advise Joe Biden not to send U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea as whatever senile old Joe sends would NOT be able to withstand a concerted Russian attack nor might Turkey allow the vessels to pass back through the Dardanelles to the Mediterranean.  It could be a real cluster-f**k.  Finally, Admiral Charles Richard, head of U.S. Strategic Command, issues a dire warning to the administration: the Chi-Coms and the Russians are modernizing their nuclear forces much faster than anything the United States is doing.  Sadly, WOKE issues for the Democrats are much more important than defending the nation.[xvii]
  89. 2021 Tuesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1652 with a $257 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 06, 23, 43, 49, 52, and Mega 05.  Out of 166,921 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,806,354.  The winning ticket was sold at the Richmond New May Wah Supermarket in San Francisco, CA 94118.

  91. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 567,674 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 202,919 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 455 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  92. 2022 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,162,004 confirmed cases, 89,844 confirmed deaths, and 8,931,498 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,935,813 confirmed cases, 73,759 confirmed deaths, and 5,805,626 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 237,950 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,477,863 confirmed cases, 12,626 confirmed deaths, and 1,438,605 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Puerto Rico: they have 499,539 confirmed cases, 4,188 confirmed deaths, and 473,564 confirmed recoveries.[xx]

  94. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,160.79, UP 249.59 points (+0.71%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,453.07 DOWN 166.59 points (-1.22%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,459.45, DOWN 2.76 points (-0.062%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $102.56 per barrel, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of GOLD is $1,955.90 per troy oz., +0.30 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.21 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.24%).  The price of PLATINUM is $984.30 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.27%) while the price of COPPER is $4.66 per pound, +0.01 (+0.18%).[xxii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,443.32 per troy oz., -8.61 (-0.35%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,750.00 per troy oz., -150.00 (-0.79%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, +5,000.00 (+0.45%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,270.00 per USD/T, +9.00 (+0.28%).

  95. 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 $5.696 per gallon, $4.106 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.682 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Louisiana- $3.869.  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 22nd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.348 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,397,730,855,439 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 Philippines the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  96. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– It’s Day No. 56 in the Russo-Ukrainian War with no end in sight.  Germany says that by the end of the year, there will be no more oil coming into their country from Russia nor will there be any natural gas shortly after that.  They must know that President Donald J. Trump is returning soon, and that oil and natural gas will be flowing from the United States once again.
  97. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our glorious Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 383 days.  Worse, she has not shown up to do the job in 297 days.  By our count, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris regime’s illegal aliens since January 01, 2022, is $700,740,760.  Next, since the duo took their oaths to defend the country and its Constitution, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders is $42,446,546,503.  Since the first day of the year, we contend 1,119,308 illegal alien invaders have arrived in the country while the conservative low estimate of illegals believed to be in the country is 46,550,965.  We believe the truer number is between 85-to-125 million illegals which is an intolerable amount.  Good news: the 7th bus of illegals arrived in the nation’s capital today.  Dump ‘em out on the White House lawn.  Put them to work. (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).

  103. 2022 Wednesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new poll of U.S. military veterans says the majority of them believe that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark A. Milley is BAD for morale.  Speaking of someone else BAD for the nation’s morale, Joe Biden sees only 26-percent approval among Hispanic voters.  This is not good for the regime.   Next, Joe Biden- well, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain or perhaps the Easter bunny- is demoting Acting ATF Director Marvin Richardson and bringing in U.S. Attorney Gary Restaino from Arizona to run the ship while his new nominee, former Ohio U.S. Attorney Steve Dettlebach tries to make it through confirmation in the U.S. Senate.
  104. 2022 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News II– In yet another sell-out by the Biden regime, the Bidenistas are canceling nuclear sea-launched cruise missile known as the SLCM-N, and the B83 gravity nuclear bombs designed.  It would appear that the administration is doing what Joe Biden and the Democrats always accused President Donald J. Trump- the legitimate president- of doing, being a stooge for the Russians.  Joe Biden and the Democrats surrounding him are the TRUE stooges of not just the Russians but of the Chi-Coms.   Twenty-fifth Amendment anyone?
  105. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News III– Supposedly, ‘Joe Biden’ held a confab with his top military generals today as events in Ukraine continue going from bad to worse.  Eastern European leaders however are journeying to Kyiv to walk the streets with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.   However, U.S. cybersecurity agencies and foreign allies are warning of massive Russian cyberattacks coming our way.  Oh, perish the thought.
  106. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News IV– The Centers for Disease Control have asked the Biden regime to ask the Department of Justice to appeal the federal judge’s slap-down of mask mandates on air travel.  Dutifully, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that he is going to contest the ruling, spending millions of taxpayer dollars with which to overturn an extremely popular ruling with the American people.  They just keep striking out on one issue after another that could help Democrats win in the fall.
  107. 2022 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th district, says that the Centers for Disease Control NEVER provided reasons for keeping masks on air travel.   Next, a new poll says that President Donald J. Trump holds an insurmountable lead over his closest possible Republican contenders in 2024 and a massive-massive-massive lead over losers such as Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, and U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell who would never run anyway.  His time in GOP politics is coming to an end within his next election cycle.  He’s going the way of Di-Fi.
  108. 2022 Wednesday R: Political News II- The Senate Majority PAC- a Democrat fund-raising monster- is rolling out a massive ad blitz to support crumbling Senator Tammy Baldwin, DS-WI, who is among many at risk of losing their seats in November.  The Democrats are rolling out massive ad campaigns across the fruited plain with which- or so they hope- to maintain some hope of holding a majority.  They stand better chance of dumping illegals in all 50 states and giving them the right to vote with 30-day residency which is why the GOP must go out NOW and begin recruiting the illegals to register GOP.  NOW.
  109. 2022 Wednesday S: U.S. Military News– In Ohio, the first ever Courts Martial of a U.S. Air Force Major General William Cooley is underway as jury selection commences.  The general is accused of forcibly groping and kissing a subordinate.  At least it’s not for refusing to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.
  110. 2022 Wednesday T: Big Tech News– Big Tech strikes again: Google takes down Hong Kong leadership contender John Lee’s YouTube account.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis- fresh from leading his state forward in the battle to force Disney to return to being at least, a neutral company, and at best, the American company that it once was is going after yet another WOKE target: Twitter.  The Sunshine State is threatening Twitter’s board of directors with a lawsuit over its rejection of Elon Musk’s buyout offer.  How can they do this, you ask?  Well, not considering an offer that would enrich ALL shareholders is a rejection of their fiduciary obligation to their shareholders and for this, the worthless company can be sued in court.   It is interesting to note that Governor DeSantis holds Twitter stock.  Not good for Twitter.
  111. 2022 Wednesday U: Big Tech News II– Another Big Tech icon sputtering into the wastebin of history like video shops is Netflix.  Having lost more than 200,000-plus users in recent months, shares of the online ‘video shop’ have fallen 23-percent.  Once Netflix went all WOKE, they, too, lost their allure, paying the Obamas hundreds of millions of dollars for some of the crappiest ‘entertainment’ on the Net.  How sad.  Meanwhile, it appears that CNN+ is doomed to circle the crapper, too.  Don’t these flipping liberals ever learn the hard lessons?  The American people are middle-right and don’t want all this WOKE CRAP.
  112. 2022 Wednesday V: Popular Culture News– Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania, by an 8-1 vote shot down an attempt by some sick f**ks to establish an afterschool Satan club.  These evil clubs operate in four other places around the country, opening a door to things better left alone by enticing young people that it’s all just, good clean fun.  Bullshit.  You know, you can tell when a culture is in its decline.  Here is how: (1) constant political strife bordering or leading to civil war.  (2) open borders and an inability to do what’s necessary to stop barbarians from flowing across it- namely, use of force to stop the invasion.  (3) loss of common culture, language, belief in God (4) embracing all things perverse such as homosexuality, perversion, chicks with dicks, mentally ill believing they are something they are biologically incapable of being (5) the acceptance of dark ‘religious faiths’ such as satanism, abortion on demand, the eradication of the sick, the infirm, the mentally challenged (6) the corruption, i.e., the sexualization of children, minors, and sexual abuse (7) rampant crime, especially violent crime, loss of law and order, abrogation of government’s duty to protect its citizenry from thugs and criminals (8) constant wars for no apparent reason, the worrying of foreign events over domestic events, the worrying about noncitizens over citizens, i.e., the replacement theory, which is indeed FACT, NOT THEORY.  Each of these things is bad enough but combined together and it’s the End of Times.  We have a leader who should be in the old folks’ home, and we are well on our way to the end of the line for the United States.
  113. 2022 Wednesday W: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3657 what with a $35 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 29, 36, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 111,308 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,284 apiece.   One ticket was sold at Bob’s Liquors in Redding, CA 96002 while the other was sold at Neighbors’ Market and Spirits in Galt, CA 95632.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #978 with a jackpot of $370 million up for grabs: 20, 30, 45, 55, 56, and Power 14.  Out of 94,565 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,235 apiece.

[i] We look forward to presenting the music of Grand Funk Railroad sometime in the late 2020s.

[ii] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

[iii] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[iv] 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.

[v] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] At some point in the distant future, we hope to do the music of the famed rocker, Prince.  Be sure to remain aware for the day that we do.

[xvi] When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately.  Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico.   The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals.  What a day that will be.

[xvii] We have predicted since ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election that it would not surprise any of us if the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the North Koreans, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, the Cubans, and all the Third World countries in the orbit of Beijing were to act in concert against the U.S. and her interests.  What better opportunity would they have?  Unless President Donald Trump reenters the White House, we are sitting ducks.

108. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2022

2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election. The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’ Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See! See! The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’ Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…

  59. 2015 Saturday: In Nigeria, 17 people die from a mystery disease within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.  Tests show that the disease is not viral; however, currently, there is no identification.  Elsewhere, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inducts Ringo Starr[vi] (finally!), the Paul Butterfield Blues Band[vii] (finally!), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts[viii] (finally!), Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble[ix] (guy’s been dead quite a while), Green Day[x], Bill Withers[xi], Lou Reed[xii] (finally), and the Five Royals.
  60. 2016 Monday: U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter arrives in Baghdad and informs his counterparts that in an effort to defeat ISIS, the U.S. will be sending more troops to help Iraqi troops repel the murderous thugs.  Elsewhere, in the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, a migrant boat off the coast of Egypt, overloaded with Somali immigrants bound for Italy capsizes and at least 400 of the travelers drown.
  61. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low-cost foreign workers. 
  62. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  63. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  64. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Saturday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former 72nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul H. O’Neill died at age 84.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, to December 31, 2002.
  66. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 141,015,440 confirmed cases, +932,847, 3,014,805  confirmed deaths, +12,651, and 80,500,382 confirmed recoveries, +659,474.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,867,364 confirmed cases, UP 102,620 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,627 confirmed deaths, UP 1,163, and 119,031,290 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] 
  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  68. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv] 
  69. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,047 confirmed cases, 6,338 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- the West Bank, long a part of Israel: 279,273 cases of the virus, 2,983 confirmed deaths and 245,293 confirmed recoveries.[xv]  
  70. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 81.80 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.98.[xvi]
  71. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.968 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.745 in Hawaii, and $3.371 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.676.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,186,291,746,801 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]
  72. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS– in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I– Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously, and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021, and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  76. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III– Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin, which is not right, but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  77. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I– Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in an advantageous position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  78. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  79. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.
  80. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 505,019,209 confirmed cases, +211,451, 6,224,359 confirmed deaths, +1,092 and 456,444,263 confirmed recoveries, +441,770.

  81. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 566,404 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 201,649 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 453 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  83. 2022 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,036,384 confirmed cases, 10,647 confirmed deaths, and 3,941,841 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Diamond Princess, 216th place on the list: 712 cases of the virus, 13 confirmed death and 699 confirmed recoveries.[xxiii]                        
  84. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,411.69, DOWN 39.54 points (-0.11%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,332.36 DOWN 18.72 points (-18.72%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,391.69, DOWN 0.90 points (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $107.59 per barrel, +0.64 (+0.60%).  The price of GOLD is $1,980.10 per troy oz., +5.20 (+0.26%) while the price of SILVER is $26.04 per troy ounce, +0.34 (+1.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,016.70 per troy oz, +22.50 (+2.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.80 per pound, +0.08 (+1.67%).[xxiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,442.24 per troy oz., +73.78 (+3.11%).

  86. 2022 Monday F: For us, the day after Easter is still another holiday…at least in professional foodservice.  Join us for a drink- you know where to find me.

[i] This is the TRUE government of China, Nationalist China which is FREE China.  Although these people inhabit Taiwan, the former island of Formosa, they are the true owners of mainland China, too, and the sooner they reclaim their birthright, the sooner the world will heal.

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

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.

[iv] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

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

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

[vii] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.

[viii] Not sure when we will begin celebrating the music of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts but when we do…you will be among the first to know.

[ix] As to when we will celebrate the life, times, and music of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, we haven’t a clue so stay alert for the day we finally do.

[x] We doubt we will ever do the music of Green Day.

[xi] We hope to celebrate the music of Bill Withers one day.  Please stay alert for when that day arrives.  You will be glad you did.

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

49. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2022

2021 Thursday I: For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Germany: currently, they have 2,362,352 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 67,074 confirmed deaths, and 2,153,918 confirmed recoveries. The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes where he killed at least 15,000-20,000 if not more. For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged. Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.

  55. 2017 Saturday: Former American abortion activist Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” in Roe v.

Trump sends out a series of Tweets in which, he expresses his displeasure on a variety of things.  Here is what he said in some of his messages: “If it was the GOAL of Russia to create discord, disruption and chaos within the U.S. then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

Trump executes four pardons/commutations of sentence on this date: “Junk Bond King” Michael Milken, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., and former NYPD Commissioner Bernard “Bernie” Kerik.  Once again, President Trump has demonstrated his commitment to doing what is right in a U.S. Justice system gone mad.   Meanwhile, tomorrow night is the big debate, the first DNC one to feature multibillionaire Michael Bloomberg and Democrats are going berserk around the country fearful that this POS bigoted scumbag is trying to BUY the nomination and then the White House.
  59. 2021 Thursday: Day 30 of the Biden Regime.  First, in a magnanimous moment of charity, Bill Gates suggests that it might be ‘okay’ for Donald Trump to be allowed back onto social media platforms- what a guy.  Speaking of Big Tech, Facebook is screeching and crying over to having to pay for its news feeds in Australia.  The country passed a law in which social media and search engine platforms Downunder must reimburse the sources from whence the news emanates.  Of course, Facebook does not like this.  Stop the sobbing.  In other media news, we learn today that Antifa thug John “Jake” Sullivan, a POS Marxist who led the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, received $35,000 each from CNN and NBC for his photos of the death of Ashlii Babbitt on that horrendous day, one the Dems continue trying to tie to former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of that horrible day and its aftermath, General Russell L. Honoré- the hero of Hurricane Katrina and now, a Kool-Aid-guzzling hack hired by Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to investigate the left-wing Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, is saying all manner of crazy things.  First, the barbed wire and walls around the Capitol aren’t leaving anytime soon, next that most of the line officers are pro-Trumpers, and that various Republicans must be rounded up, expelled, or imprisoned.  What happened to this guy?  Fascism is coming to a town or city near YOU soon.
  60. 2021 Thursday A: Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas is overwhelmed by the collapse of his state’s power infrastructure.  The winter storm has virtually stopped ALL power generation.  No one ever thought something like this would happen to the Lone Star State and those of us who might have thought about moving there at some point are now reconsidering those thoughts.  Apparently, the Electrical Reliability Council of Texas- never anticipated a disaster such as what has millions in the dark, sans heat, sans electricity, sans water, and sans communication services,  Meanwhile, conservative Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was caught on film taking his family to Cancun, Mexico, to escape the winter freeze-for-all in his home state.   In other energy-winter news, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is asking the federal government for a natural disaster emergency declaration.
  61. 2021 Thursday B: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has told him to say he is going to establish a commission to look into reparations for slavery.  We went to our colleague Chef Bea O’Malley for his opinion on this matter and this is what she said: “NEVER gonna happen and here’s why- IF the Democrats were to give us black folks ‘reparations’ for something none of us have ever known (unless we came from the Third World), it would take one of their biggest RACISM ‘drums’ off the drum kit.  Thus, they never will do this because they would rather bang the drum for the rest of eternity than to actually address a ‘problem’ none of us living in this country have ever known.’  She also pointed out the obvious: they can’t even get us Chi-Vi relief checks so how the heck are they going to get us ‘reparations?’  The earpiece also told Joe Biden to look into how he can remove ALL student loan debt from the American people.  Our question: are the professors going to work for free or are we, the American people, going to have to foot this bill, too?  Dumb ass.
  62. 2021 Thursday C: House Financial Services Committee Chairperson Maxine Waters, D-CA, is busting the balls of CEOs from Robinhood and Reddit today over the GameStop debacle that saw the price of the stock driven sky high and then billions in short sales.   Of course, Democrats are upset they didn’t make some money off this amazingly successful strategy.   Meanwhile, the numbers of people murdered by New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo in his vast nursing home scandal and conspiracy, the one in which, he channeled COVID-19-infected people back into the places from whence they came and where their fellow patients were highly vulnerable to infection, illness, and death.  The number of nursing home deaths now sits at 19,000 dead and moron Cuomo MUST go to prison for this outrage.   Elsewhere around the country, the Los Angeles County School District has voted to remove ALL police from their school campuses and to seek $25,000 from the LAPD annual budget so they can concentrate on racial equity programs.   We bet YOU guys feel so good about yourselves, don’t you, wetting your panties we bet.  Finally, in California, the drive to recall Governor Gavin Newsom has far surpassed the necessary 1.5 million signatures which is why this POS nephew of Nancy Pelosi has signed a law that mandates the mailing of ballots to every registered voter (and illegal aliens) so as to ‘protect them from the Chinese Virus.  What does that say about mail-in ballots?
  63. 2021 Thursday D: Unemployment figures from last week far surpassed the week before, coming in at 861,000.  Thank you, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for being such a worthless POS that you are.  Your policies are killing the country.  Meanwhile, another POS politician- Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, under censure from the state’s GOP joins the loony tunes circus by saying, “There are white supremacists in both the GOP and the Democratic Party.”  WTF is wrong with YOU?  Another loser, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says the ‘state’s GOP should focus on elections and not on (her) rebuke.’  Senator Collins, you MUST go.  Speaking of elections, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says the national GOP is working on securing elections across the country.  Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, has gone to Mar-A-Lago to visit with President Donald J. Trump.   Speaking of the former president, 75-percent of Republicans want Mr. Trump to continue as a major guiding light of the GOP which does not bode well for the “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell RINO wing of the party. 
  64. 2021 Thursday E: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has given him a NEW immigration plan- near immediate legalization of 11 million illegal aliens in the country (an extremely sparse number seeing as how various estimates have put the numbers closer to between 30-50 million shadow-dwellers).  Some Democrats are beginning to tremble because if illegals become immediate citizens, the economy is going to tank, America’s genuine citizens are going to suffer, and crime rates are going to skyrocket rather than plummet.  Still, no one will talk sense to Barack Hussein Obama- oops- Joe Biden, certainly no one within his administration.  Elsewhere, any answers about flawed ‘Joe Biden policies’ are answered by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki with ‘this one’s a woman, that one’s gay, that one is intersectional,’ like it’s somehow some sort of consolation that the person charged with fixing the problems are men who have become women or women who have become men, etc.  Enough with the identity politics already.   It almost makes us wish the Chi-Coms or the Russkies or the Taliban would take over so we could clean house on all this insanity.   In other Joe Biden news, the earpiece tells Usurper Joe to negate another Trump order, one that limited ‘climate change’ as a hashmark in federal reviews. 
  65. 2021 Thursday F: Here are particulars for the bill for the border swimmers and jumpers- 8 pathway to citizenship for ‘11’ (truly 30-50) million illegals.  Temporary status of five years plus three-year wait for citizenship.  The word, “illegal aliens” will be removed and ‘undocumented Democrats,’ oops, ‘undocumented persons will take its place as will be more immigration courts and judges plus $4 billion investment in Central America and infrastructure so illegals wanting to come here can begin the process there.  Effectively, NO one is going to be deported.  Thank you, Joe, thank you for destroying our country.
  66. 2021 Thursday G: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 109,901,391 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,350.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, +2,253 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as three weeks ago, going on four.  NOTE- in the White House 30 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 166,609 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  67. 2021 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,505,032 confirmed cases, 47,902 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 427 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 334,284 confirmed cases, 4,824 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Missouri: currently, they have 510,705 confirmed cases, 7,929 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 738,629 confirmed cases, 5,473 confirmed deaths, and 681,249 confirmed recoveries.    
  68. 2021 Thursday I: For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Germany: currently, they have 2,362,352 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 67,074 confirmed deaths, and 2,153,918 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes where he killed at least 15,000-20,000 if not more.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  He will neither apologize nor will he admit his guilt.  This man must go to prison, his book should be canceled, and his Emmy stripped away.  Imagine if HE was a Republican.  The Democrats are slamming this piece of pond scum while the FBI is looking into his actions.  We also learned that Governor “Killer” Cuomo called Democrats in the state’s legislature and threatened them with repercussions.  F**k him.
  69. 2021 Thursday J:  IS THIS THE BEGINNING OF THE BIDEN DEPRESSION WE PREDICTED WOULD HAPPEN IN LATE SPRING/EARLY SUMMER?  We will keep our eyes on the crumbling stocks and commodities markets.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes but note- the Stock Market is now plummeting thanks to identity politics in the White House: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,493.34, DOWN 119.68 points (-0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,865.36, DOWN 100.14 points (-0.72%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,913.97, DOWN 17.36 points (-0.44%).  The price of GOLD is $1,770.20 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $26.89 per troy ounce, -0.19 (-0.69%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,274.20 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.04%) while the price of COPPER is $3.90 per pound, 0.00 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,558.80 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.06%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.84 (-1.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000019 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 5.43 Brazilian Real.
  70. 2021 Thursday K: Former President Donald J. Trump’s approval ratings among all citizens now rests at 59-percent approval ratings.  Meanwhile, a U.S. Senate panel has scheduled February 23, 2021, as the date for holding a hearing on the SolarWinds hack.  Next, the CDC releases a report in which, it says there ‘is no credible evidence that foods can pass the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Panda Pandemic, or the Chi-Vi to other human beings.  Speaking of the ‘VID, vaccine trials with pregnant women set to begin soon so as to fill a major black hole in what’s known about the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s escaped disease.   Meanwhile, in 2020 during the Chi-Com Fever, greenhouse gas emissions fell by 9.2-percent.  Elsewhere, the Taliban sent a letter to feeble old Joe Biden informing him that ‘he had better stick to the timeline on withdrawing U.S. troops his predecessor negotiated with the terrorist group.’   Speaking of Donald Trump, President Donald J. Trump wistfully tells Newsmax ‘IF ONLY ‘Cocaine Mitch’ McConnell would hit back at Joe Biden and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer as hard as he hits me.’  That’s a hell of a statement.   Finally- as if no one did not know this, the U.S. is putting out feelers to rejoin the JCPOA, the corrupt agreement with which to prevent the Iranians from going nuclear.  Wow.
  71. 2021 Thursday L: NASA successfully landed their latest Mars Rover today.  This is their most advanced lander yet, one that will test for signs of ancient (and present) life as well as run experiments with which to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen.   There also is a plan to return rock and soil samples back to the Earth.  Gee, after what has happened with the Chi-Coms and their Panda Pandemic, is that not something we could do on, say, the moon?  Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives introduces a bill with which to ban all products from Xinjiang Province in western China in which, slave labor produced it.  The Chi-Coms would have to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that NO slave labor by Uighurs or other Muslims produced it.  Xinjiang Province produces much of the world’s cotton and cotton products and the Uighur and other religious minority slaves are the ones doing it. 
  72. 2021 Thursday M: Texas cold snap enters its sixth day as biggest energy-producing state in the United States contends with systemic power outrages that have killed more than 20 people and left 4 million Texans in the dark and in the cold.  Many are having to boil snow to obtain water because any water coming out of the pipes is not potable seeing as how water purification plants have shut down due to loss of power from windmills and solar farms.  IF anyone requires a glimpse of what a future under loony tunes Green New Deal legislation looks like, take a good, long look at Texas, the number one state with the biggest fossil fuel reserves.  Liberalism has infected a conservative government and left the citizens of the Lone Star state suffering because of it.   Whatever that bug-eyed dingbat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we should do the exact flipping opposite of it.
  73. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

Thursday, February 18, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

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


[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[ii] We began offering the music of the famed Flying Burrito Brothers on Sunday, 23-February-2014 through Thursday, 06-March-2014.  Please seek them out.  We thank you.

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

[iv] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

[v] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering

[vi] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.

[vii] Millions of Catholics wish that Pope Francis would go home to Argentina and remain there. 

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

2020 Tuesday B: As fallout from the now-discredited ‘Lincoln Project’ and founding member John Weaver’s giving young men jobs in exchange for kinky sex around the clock, people are laughing at this collective group of losers who sought to destroy Donald Trump while self-enriching themselves at the same time.

Trump, 31 years later, uses Twitter to get word to the American people.

  64. 2016 Tuesday: The government of Honduras declares a state of emergency as more than 3,500 people have the Zika virus.  Elsewhere, European Union and U.S. negotiators hash out a deal with which to protect data transfers across the North Atlantic by companies such as Amazon.com and Google as well as forcing such entities to protect the privacy of the information.
  65. 2017 Thursday: As the battle to vilify President Donald J. Trump continues, the Washington Post prints a story in which it claims the 45th president berated Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.  The Post reports that Mr. Trump called it ‘the worst call ever’ and expressed his unhappiness over a refugee resettlement deal struck between the Aussies and the Obama regime.  From the very start, legions of spies, leakers, and peeping toms were spying on the new president so they could either frame him for crimes he did not commit or to embarrass him.  Skunks.
  66. 2018 Friday: At the sentencing hearing in Michigan for former sports doctor Larry Nassar, a distraught father of three girls who’d been sexually abused by this POS attempted to attack Nassar before sheriff’s deputies tackled him and hauled him out of court.  Randall Margraves later apologized; the judge said there was “no way” she would fine him or send him to jail for trying to attack Dr. Nassar.  Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 650 points as the stock market completed its worst week in two years amid fears of inflation and disappointing quarterly results from technology and energy giants.
  67. 2019 Saturday: In socialism-ravaged Venezuela, hundreds of thousands of citizens take to the streets protesting their government’s thuggery.  Venezuelan Air Force General Francisco Yanez becomes the first supporter of opposition leader Juan Guiado and denounces the dictatorship of illegitimate leader Nicolas Maduro.   Regarding the crisis in Venezuela, Vice President Mike Pence informs a crowd at a rally in Florida that the time for dialogue is over and that all options are on the table.  Elsewhere, Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam says he’s not going to reside because he does not believe that the photos on his college yearbook page depicting him either as a member of the KKK or dressed in blackface are ‘him’ yet there they are- on HIS page.
  68. 2020 Sunday: Today in Super Bowl LIV, the Kansas City Chiefs face off against the San Francisco 49ers.  In a hard-fought game, the Kansas City Chiefs under Coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes beat Coach Kyle Shanahan and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo by a final score of 31-20.   We predicted early on that the 49ers and the New England Patriots would meet in Super Bowl LIV, but the playoffs saw us half-right.  Pats out in the Wild Card round and instead of the 49ers winning the big prize, the Chiefs won their second overall championship and their first in 50 years.  Wow.  Patrick Mahomes is the MVP.  Congratulations to him, the youngest player to ever win the award in a Super Bowl.
  69. 2020 Sunday A: The Philippines reports the first COVID-19-caused death outside the Chi-Com mainland.  This person was a tourist from the People’s Republic of China.  The government is considering closing its borders to the Chi-Coms which is precisely what New Zealand does- no visitors from communist China.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia hosting the upcoming Organization of Islamic Cooperation meeting in Jeddah bans the Iranians from attending which of course leads them to become angry and begin making threats.  Such is their M.O.
  70. 2021 Tuesday: Although we have reported this before, Sandy Cortez, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, must be feeling her oats, folks as once again, we hear rumors that the little skank might primary Senate Majority Leader Charles “Prune Face” Schumer next year.  We suspect that for her, that is the fastest way to be discovered moldering in a landfill.  She also says the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, terrified her as she cowered in her bathroom within the building because she is the ‘victim of sexual abuse or assault.’  Honey, most women are- especially those who work in the professional food service industry (as are occasionally young men)- over the course of their lifetimes so grow up, shut up, and move on.  As for challenging “Prune Face,” you must really be sure of yourself.  This is a fight we want to see.  Meanwhile, Congressman Tim Ryan, D-OH, is considering running for outgoing Senator Rob Portman’s seat next year.  We suspect this imbecile has gone as far as he can go.  
  71. 2021 Tuesday A:  President Joe Biden is considering nominating another Obama-Biden alum, former Chicago Mayor Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel for ambassador to the People’s Republic of China.  Next, after meeting with 10 GOP moderates and RINOs yesterday in the White House, President Biden was unmoved by their pleas for targeted, less expensive COVID-19 relief measures and is pushing forward with his $1.9 trillion stimulus bill.  There you go, Republicans, Democrats could give a f**k what YOU ask for or say.   Elsewhere, the Daily Beast reports that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki wants questions of reporters in advance.   Meanwhile, Kansas City, Missouri, Catholic Archbishop Joseph Naumann says that ‘Joe Biden’s soul is in jeopardy.’  Archbishop Naumann, there was a time when the Catholic Church would excommunicate monarchs and kings so where is Pope Francis and why is he not excommunicating this abortion-pushing POS who’s in the White House now?  Enough is enough!  Excommunicate every member of the PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT NOW.
  72. 2020 Tuesday B: As fallout from the now-discredited ‘Lincoln Project’ and founding member John Weaver’s giving young men jobs in exchange for kinky sex around the clock, people are laughing at this collective group of losers who sought to destroy Donald Trump while self-enriching themselves at the same time.  We hear that John Conway allegedly was engaged in the same criminal behavior as his close buddy, John Weaver.  What a bunch of scumbags.  Allegedly!   Elsewhere, 2 FBI agents are dead, three others wounded, and a suspect dead, too, following an early morning shootout in Ft. Lauderdale’s Sunrise suburb today.  The federal agents arrived at a home in the well-to-do neighborhood to serve a federal warrant in a child abuse case.  Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony “Full of Crap” Fauci says everyone might now need to wear ‘two masks’ if we are going to combat the rampaging Chi-Vi.  Uh, Dr. Fauci, approximately one year ago, YOU said masks don’t do any good with viruses.  We guess you must be heavily invested in companies manufacturing PPE gear.   Finally, famed actor Hal Holbrook dies at age 95.  God bless you, Hal.
  73. 2021 Tuesday C: New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo who is under much fire now over his criminal mishandling of the Chinese Virus within the Empire State is going to meet with other governors with President Joe Biden in the White House today, ostensibly to beg for bailouts.  Speaking of COVID-19, former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney says, Joe Biden is ‘extraordinarily weak’ and that he ‘cannot get a Wuhan Virus relief bill.’  Meanwhile, Democrats are now pushing so-called ‘Baby Bonds’ where America’s children (which most likely means offspring of illegal aliens, too) will be given a ‘grubstake’ in life with a bond of $46,000 at birth.   (Note- the best gift to all America’s young people is to deport EVERY illegal alien from the country which will open more jobs at higher pay as well as bring down costs, most notably in housing and in medicine for all Americans.  Countries that defend their borders and thus their citizens have higher standards of living than those that become garbage dumps).   
  74. 2021 Tuesday D: We now learn that the Durham probe most likely will not lead to the prosecutions of anyone involved in the scandalous Trump-Russia Collusion scam.  What a shame.  People like James Comey, knuckle-dragging John Brennan, James Clapper, Sally Yates, and far too many more from the Obama administration are going to get a full pass.  Next, the White House faces criticism over seeking briefing questions in advance, folks, simply unheard of, yet that is what we learn.  It would be great if the White House could find someone blessed with a higher IQ than stuttering and stammering and um-umming Jen Psaki.  In nearly two weeks, she has demonstrated to millions of Americans that she is as fit for the job as is President Joe Biden.  Speaking of dangers for the United States, a new report says that the Chi-Coms have stolen the information of 80-percent of U.S. citizens.  Hell, the sons of bitches are trying to steal our biodata, too.  Time to give them a black eye and a bloody nose.  Chi-Com scum.
  75. 2021 Tuesday E: The U.S. Senate confirms Mayor Pete Buttigieg as the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation.  Next, President Joe Biden signs three more executive orders today, all three dealing with Trump era immigration policies.   One order will be to address the flow of illegals from Central America to the United States while another will end Trump’s restrictions on the numbers of green cards handed out to illegals.  Another will officially establish a commission to reunite families and to end family separations at the border.  Elsewhere, Newsmax reports that California crackpot Congresswoman “Gasoline Maxine” Waters has given her daughter more than $1 million of campaign funds.   (Note- the name “Gasoline Maxine” comes from the GOP opponent she faced in November 2020, U.S. military veteran Joe Collins).  Meanwhile, in a move that is angering millions of Republicans, already unpopular Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, is blasting House Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA, while defending highly disliked Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY.  As long as Mitch remains in power, millions of Republicans are choosing NOT to donate their dwindling dollars to this dinosaur party.  Good going there, Mitch.
  76. 2021 Tuesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 103,572,661 confirmed cases, +482,437, 2,243,638, confirmed deaths, +12,809, and 57,502,710 confirmed recoveries, +342,692.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,524,218 confirmed cases, up 83,699 from yesterday’s reporting, 447,715 confirmed deaths, UP 1,448, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in seven days.  This tells us the Biden administration does not want them reported. 
  77. 2021 Tuesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,341,197 confirmed cases, 41,344 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 317,703 confirmed cases, 4,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Texas: currently, they have 2,415,490 confirmed cases, 37,405 confirmed deaths, and 1,993,705 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 652,246 confirmed cases, 4,816 confirmed deaths, and 573,208 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- India: they have 10,778,031 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 154,629 confirmed deaths, and 10,461,230 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden says next week, retail pharmacies will begin giving Chi-Vi immunizations.    In the Empire State, Andrew “Killer” Cuomo underreported the deaths of senior citizens in nursing homes by a much as 50-percent.  Health officials in New York City and across his state are resigning in disgust over this POS criminal mishandling of the Kung Flu crisis.
  78. 2021 Tuesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,687.48 UP 475.57 points (+1.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,612.78, UP 209.38 points (+1.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,826.31, UP 52.45 points (+1.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,837.60 per troy oz., +4.20 (+0.23%) while the price of SILVER is $26.66 per troy ounce, +0.258 (+0.98%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,100.70 per troy oz, +4.70 (+0.43%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,241.70 per troy oz, +33.30 (+1.51%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $55.04 per barrel, +0.28 (+0.51%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000028.
  79. 2021 Tuesday I: The Chi-Com foreign ministry is excited about ‘working with the Joe Biden administration moving forward’ but according to Beijing, the U.S. ‘must respect the One-China Policy in which the Chi-Coms are the legitimate government of Taiwan and that any talk of Taiwan becoming an independent country or of receiving diplomatic recognition from the U.S. as free and independent is wrong and cannot happen.’  President Donald J. Trump was extremely friendly with Taipei, and we believe that IF the world does not recognize Taiwan as its own country, then the Two-China Policy must be restored, and Taiwan must return to being the ONLY China in the U.N. and on the U.N. Security Council.  Of course, this won’t win us any friends in mainland China but hey- it is what it is.   We know they love ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Why wouldn’t they?  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we now know they used SolarWinds as an entry point to hack into the U.S. government’s payroll system via the implantation of spyware in the system.  Wow.  What will “Pro-China Joe” do about this?
  80. 2021 Tuesday J: The U.S. Senate confirmed Alejandro Mayorkas as the next head of the Department of Homeland Security.  Speaking of his confirmation, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, has voted “NO” on six of Joe Biden’s Cabinet picks.   Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has declared WAR on the BIG TECH CARTEL within the borders of his state.  Go for it!  Elsewhere, it appears that slow-witted bumbling and stumbling White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed the validity of the U.S. Space Force in a White House press conference.   Congressman Mike Rogers of Alabama demanded an immediate apology from the lackluster spokesperson for feeble old Joe Biden.  You won’t get it, congressman.  Speaking of losers, 10 counties in Wyoming have now voted to censure the state’s sole member of the House, Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-Wyoming. 
  81. 2021 Tuesday K: A Moscow (kangaroo) court sentences Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny to more than two years in prison on purported ‘embezzlement” and ‘corruption charges.’  Currently the Russian government has arrested between 5,000 and 10,000 pro-Navalny protesters, many of whom are still in jail while thousands more are out in the streets demanding his release and an end to Vladimir Putin.   Russia has dismissed E.U. and U.S. criticisms over their handling of Navalny and warns them of ‘interfering in its domestic affairs.’  Elsewhere, former Texas governor and secretary of energy Rick Perry blasts ‘global climate czar’ John F. Kerry for the trail of emissions his private jet leaves around the world.   Speaking of losers like Mr. Kerry, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s approval numbers continue falling.  Californians expect that Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew will be removed from office next month.   Regarding the House speaker, she is beefing up security for her fellow Democrat House members when they travel.
  82. 2021 Tuesday L: Here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1630 with a jackpot of $42 million: 13, 37, 38, 40, 67, and Mega 10.  Out of 77,680 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were FOUR people who had FOUR plus the MEGA for a prize of $8,746 apiece.
  83. 2021 Tuesday M: As Democrats continue preparing for their kangaroo impeachment court on Monday, February 8, the one in which, they seek to remove a president already out of office, the Trump legal team says their client was merely expressing his First Amendment rights.  No where did he or anyone in his administration call for violence whereas most every elected Democrat has either cheered violence on or has bailed out violent mob members and put them back onto the streets.   Speaking of human fecal matter, it has become apparent that Iran is working hard underground in their development of nuclear materials with which to make bombs and fast.  Time for someone to nuke the living hell out of these Iranian scumbags.   Meanwhile, the once-proud Pentagon is purging members of its defense policy board who were Trump appointees.  It is beginning to appear that we do have a shadow military junta in this country. 
  84. 2021 Tuesday N: Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske steps down from office on this date.  A member of no professed political party, Pekoske served under President Joe Biden from January 20, 2021, until today.  His replacement- the 7th U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas- assumed his position on this date and is still serving under the 46th president.
  85. 2022 Wednesday: Stick around…

If you have read the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day for any length of time, you know we are diehard completists that seek out every shred of music from the bands we love and promote, thus we have one you will want to add to your collection: “Fotheringay Essen 1970” (August 08, 2011).  This band put out one album back in the day then segued back and forth between Sandy Denny solo efforts and occasional couplings with Fairport Convention.  The band features Sandy Denny (vocals, guitars), Trevor Lucas (guitars, basses, harmonicas, and vocals), Jerry Donahue (lead guitar, vocals), Pat Donaldson (bass/vocals), Gerry Conway (Drums).  If you love the English folk music the way we do as performed by Fairport Convention, Led Zeppelin’s acoustic material, and other similar bands, this is an album that your ears should investigate.  Please, seek it out, give it a listen, and see if it’s right for you- we think you will be glad that you did.

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

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


Wednesday, February 02, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

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

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

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Journey around the time we did the music of Santana. We hope to do so sometime within the next 10-12 years.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

25. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JANUARY 25, 2022

2021 Monday: First of all, it’s official: Janet Yellen is now the first female U.S. Treasury secretary. Congratulations. It really matters what is or what is NOT between your legs. We are proud. Next, the LEFT is celebrating ‘President’ Joe Biden’s ‘Catholicism’ which is strange because the man is a founding member of the Pro-Death Movement (aka Pro-Choice). IF Pope Francis were not such a leftist himself, he’d excommunicate the Satan-worshipping ‘46th president.’

  54. 2013 Friday: A French court orders Twitter to reveal personal information after some of its users have posted anti-Semitic and racist rants using the source.   Elsewhere, riots break out in Moscow as the parliament attempts to pass anti-LGBTQIA+ measures.  Meanwhile, true to his word, the 75th U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner stepped down from office on this date.  A Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from January 26, 2009, until today.   His temporary replacement Neil S. Wolin- another Democrat- took charge from today until February 28, 2013, when his permanent replacement Jack Lew took over.
  55. 2014 Saturday: The DOW Jones Industrial Average drops 300 points after slowing growth in China and plans by the Federal Reserve to begin tapering of its own causes investors to withdraw money from emerging markets; this is the worst drop the DOW has seen since 2011.
  56. 2015 Sunday: President Barack Obama[iv] and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi make progress in the areas of defense and nuclear trade; the countries plan to cooperate on defense issues, military manufacturing initiatives, and nuclear power development.
  57. 2016 Monday: Near the Nigerian border in northern Cameroon, Boko Haram runs amok what with suicide bombers killing 32 people and wounding another 66.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, a Saudi-led airstrike kills a Yemeni judge and members of his family.  This, of course, leads to intense outrage across the world.
  58. 2017 Wednesday: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto says there’s ‘no way that Mexico is going to pay for ANY PART of the border wall between Mexico and the United States,’ the one promised by President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of the 45th president, he signs two executive orders, one that strips funding away from sanctuary cities and states and the other to begin construction on the wall that Mexico ‘won’t pay for.’
  59. 2018 Thursday: The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists move the Doomsday Clock[v] by 30 seconds to 2 minutes to midnight, the closest it’s been since the 1950s.  The group is a left-wing group, and they are afraid of President Donald J. Trump and not the terrorist nations of Iran and North Korea.  Meanwhile, President Trump informs the Palestinians that they are going to lose their foreign aid if they fail to begin working with Israel on peace.
  60. 2019 Friday: After 27 years of struggle- following the dissolution of Yugoslavia into its core parts, the Greek Parliament votes on whether to accept the Republic of Macedonia- a name with which, they took umbrage seeing as how Alexander was born in Macedonia- Greek Macedonia- and by a vote of 153-146 that the Republic of Macedonia changing its name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia is acceptable and can occur.  There you go.
  61. 2020 Saturday:  Comrade Xi Jinping calls for a special meeting of the Chi-Com Politburo where he discusses the spread of COVID-19 and the danger it poses to the people of China.   Of course, it originated in the Wuhan biomedical/biowarfare laboratory (although they would seek to blame the U.S. Army at a later date for bringing it into their country- a bogus claim but such are communists).   Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State orders its consulate staffers to begin leaving communist China ASAP.
  62. 2021 Monday:  First of all, it’s official: Janet Yellen is now the first female U.S. Treasury secretary.  Congratulations.  It really matters what is or what is NOT between your legs.  We are proud.  Next, the LEFT is celebrating ‘President’ Joe Biden’s ‘Catholicism’ which is strange because the man is a founding member of the Pro-Death Movement (aka Pro-Choice).  IF Pope Francis were not such a leftist himself, he’d excommunicate the Satan-worshipping ‘46th president.’  Up next, ‘President’ Joe Biden ends the Trump era ban on trannys serving in the military.   Following that, ‘President’ Joe Biden steals Donald Trump’s ‘make American, buy American’ program and remakes it as his own.  Plagiarist to the end there, Joe.
  63. 2021 Monday A: In the Golden State in the city of San (“Lord when are you going to destroy me like You did Sodom and Gomorrah?”) Francisco, taxpayers are going to continue paying the upscale hotel fees for housing the homeless until September 2021 at the earliest.  And Governor Gavin Newsom why’s there now over 1 million signatures on his recall petition.  Speaking of our brave governor, he’s ‘seen the light and is rolling back stay-at-home-orders.’  Too late, Smiler, too late.
  64. 2021 Monday B: ‘President’ Joe Biden has decided to maintain his predecessor’s travel bans on numerous countries due to the rampaging COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus, and has added South Africa to the list.  Sounds ‘racist’ to us, there, ‘Mr. President.’  Speaking of the ‘usurper-in-chief,’ he’s facing bi-partisan pushback on his massive porkulus stimulus bill which is good.  $1.9 trillion is way too much money, especially when one considers the money is flowing east from Beijing to Washington, D.C., to pay for this plus the fact ILLEGAL ALIENS are getting stimulus checks, too.  Meanwhile, ‘President’ Joe Biden announces he is going to erase all student loan debt.  That is going to lead to loss of still more jobs and lenders going broke.
  65. 2021 Monday C:  Strange things are occurring in Washington, D.C., what with the Washington Monument suddenly going dark.  Investigators are investigating.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are ordering reviews of all police departments and military and National Guard units to root out ‘right-wing radicals.’  My, my, it’s okay to be Antifa, Occupy, BLM, or even the U.S. branch of Mao’s Red Guards but conservatives?  Oh, no, never.  Speaking of trash rioting in the streets, Tacoma, Washington, now is aflame thanks to cadres of Chi-Com-trained Antifa thugs running amok in the streets.  Governor Inslee, how about calling out the National Guard and squashing these insects.  Finally, to continue the aura that Washington, D.C., is under siege from Trump supporters, 7,000 National Guard troops- the ones who have been purified by the left- will remain in the city until sometime in March, AFTER the bogus second impeachment trial of an ex-president ends.
  66. 2021 Monday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s boss, Xi Jinping, warns the U.S. against an ‘outmoded cold war mentality.’  Okay.  Meanwhile, as Russia continues rounding up thousands of anti-Putin supporters of Alexei Navalny, the ‘Biden administration’ makes weak demands of the Kremlin to ‘let these people go.’  Putin does not even meet the U.S. ambassador in person and even worse, tells ‘President’ Biden NOT to meddle in the affairs of Russia.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, a recent study shows that the world’s ice is melting at a higher rate than it was 30 years ago; yet liberals continue buying beachfront homes.  What’s up with that hypocrisy?
  67. 2021 Monday E: COVID-19 pays good, folks: Dr. Tony Fauci, darling of the American left, pulls in the highest annual salary in the federal government: $417.6 thousand dollars per year.  How many times has this goof ball been wrong?  We’ve lost count.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, an ABC ‘poll’ says that 69-percent of Americans approve of ‘President’ Joe Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis.  What has he done that Trump didn’t do?  Biden says in his first 100 days, he was going to get 100 million doses out to the American people.  Now, he’s jacking it up to 150 million doses.  We shall see.  News reports are saying that there are many unexplained deaths surrounding people who have gotten the virus.  Not good.   Meanwhile, FEMA says it will reimburse SOME of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu’s costs to the states.  (Pssst- don’t reimburse Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo because that man is responsible for a genocide among seniors and the chronically ill in the Empire State).  Finally, while COVID-19 runs amok, the billionaires continue growing wealthier while the middle and lower classes continue growing poorer.  All by leftist design, social engineering, and pro-Chi-Com politics.
  68. 2021 Monday F: The U.S. Supreme Court ends anticorruption cases launched against former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of the high court, Chief Justice John Roberts says he will NOT attend the ‘second impeachment sham trial,’ which leaves the Democrats to elevate old fogey Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to the dais in an unconstitutional trial.  Regarding impeachment, the Epoch Times says there are 29 GOP senators who are anti-impeachment and will make their presence known once the scam commences.   Also, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, is rounding up a rapid-response squad to counter Democrat moves to impeach- a second, illegal time- former President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is filing a countersuit against seven Democratic senators who tried to tie him and Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, to the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6 who tried to get him, and his colleague expelled from the upper chamber.  Finally, Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says he won’t seek re-election.  
  69. 2021 Monday G: ‘President’ Joe Biden says he’s going to ‘expedite getting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.  Look, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ (we mean ‘President Joe’) why don’t you make a new bill, the $25 bill?  We have pushed that for a long, long time- since Barack Hussein Obama was ‘president.’  That makes more sense.  Meanwhile, the Instagram scandal over ‘President’ Joe Biden followers grows- hardly anyone is following the so-called 46th president on the White House feed so Instagram has been charged with forcing all users to follow ‘President’ Joe Biden’s White House feed.  Speaking of shams and scams, Twitter has launched a program called “Birdwatch” that will monitor misinformation on its site and online.  They are going to bust all manner of leftists spreading disinformation and misinformation.  Speaking of social media, the Trump Family regains some of their social media followers.   Rupert Murdoch slams liberal media for its ‘awful WOKE orthodoxy’ and yet, Fox News worked to defeat President Trump and to put a usurper in his place.  Shame.  Elsewhere, former UN Ambassador says the ‘media bears partial responsibility for some of the divisions’ affecting our country.
  70. 2021 Monday H: Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, Democrat, says, “New York City must restore its value.”  Question is- is it too late?  Next, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says he will America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani to the ‘depths of his soul’ as the corrupt Dominion Voting System-election-stealing company out of a now hostile Canada seeks to sue the living bejezzus out of Mr. Giuliani over his battle to expose the Canadian scum for exactly what they are: criminals (or so we allege).  In other news, Budweiser says it’s NOT going to spend any money on commercials for the Super Bowl on February 7.   Meanwhile, Montana passes four bills limiting ABORTION.  Congratulations!
  71. 2021 Monday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,655,985 confirmed cases, +599,649, 2,138,251, confirmed deaths, +12,324, and 54,961,829 confirmed recoveries, +316,036.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,501,479 confirmed cases, up 127,128 from yesterday’s reporting, 425,429 confirmed deaths, UP 1,638, and 11,166,132 confirmed recoveries, UP 35,702.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,200,931 confirmed cases, 37,349 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 (sill the same as it was a week ago- something is going on in Honolulu) confirmed cases, 342 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 304,617 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Maine: currently, they have 37,046 confirmed cases, 547 confirmed deaths, and 12,245 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 606,365 confirmed cases, 4,498 confirmed deaths, and 529,834 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, MRNA says its Chi-Vi vaccine will protect against ALL variants.  Wow.  A miracle drug.
  73. 2021 Monday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,960.00, DOWN 36.98 points (-0.12%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,635.99, UP 92.93 points (+0.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,855.36, UP 13.89 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,853.90 per troy oz., -1.30 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $25.40 per troy ounce, -0.089 (-0.35%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,098.00 per troy oz, -6.70 (-0.61%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.011 (-0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,346.90 per troy oz, -18.30 (-0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.71 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.11.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  In other economic news, investment in U.S. space programs hits a record $8.9 billion in 2020.  We must return to the moon and make it to Mars before the Chi-Coms do.  Period.  Watch ‘President’ Joe Biden strip funding from NASA. 
  74. 2021 Monday L: DAY SIX OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what else ‘President’ Joe Biden is up to today.  Hmmm, his ‘boss’ House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she of drooping Botox-drenched face, walked the Article of Impeachment against ex- (the REAL) President Donald J. Trump to the U.S. Senate where the obsequious, knuckle-dragging Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer received it.  Impeachment proceedings to commence the day following Super Bowl LV.   Look, “Botox Nancy,” you are 10 seats away from losing control of the House.  In the Senate, we expect Raphael Warnock and Mark Kelly will be gone in 2022, seeing as how they were ‘winners’ of special elections in states where the state GOP leadership worked on behalf of Democrats.
  75. 2021 Monday M: Acting U.S. Treasury Secretary Andy Baukol stepped down from office on this date.  He served under President Joseph R. Biden Jr., from January 20, 2021, until today. 
  76. 2022 Tuesday: Stick around, friends, we will discover whatever the heck is occurring today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record labels being what they are, Sandy Denny’s label slapped together a second Fotheringay album years after her death.  Here is what said regarding the first effort: amazing vocalist Sandy Denny bolted the band to form a short-lived group, Fotheringay, a band we will cover because of her and Steeleye Span which we most likely won’t, concerned they may bear little to no interest for many of our readers even though they have a lengthy discography.  I guess we shall see.  Ah well, Fotheringay released their one and only album while Sandy was still alive, the eponymous “Fotheringay” that came out on June 28, 1970, and featured not only Ms. Denny, but future husband, Trevor Lucas (guitars, basses, harmonicas, and vocals), Jerry Donahue (lead guitar, vocals), Pat Donaldson (bass/vocals), Gerry Conway (Drums), and Linda Thompson and Todd Lloyd (vocals).  Thus, we now have “Fotheringay 2,” released on September 30, 2008.  If you love the English folk music the way we do as performed by Fairport Convention, Led Zeppelin’s acoustic material, the Strawbs, and other similar bands, this is an album that your ears should investigate as it does have its moments.  Please, seek it out, give it a listen, and see if it’s right for you- we think you will be glad that you did.

Monday, January 25, 2021, Today in History:  

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011.  Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.

[ii] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[iii] Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is little more than a murderous thug who should have been droned in the same way we droned Gen. Qassim Soleimani, the terrorist POS who ran the Quds Force until Donald Trump wiped him out.

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

[v] The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock is a left-wing way to terrorize the citizens of the world whenever a conservative or Republican is president of the United States.  Pay no attention to these scumbags.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Elsewhere, Barack Obama’s home country of Kenya puts into law the world’s toughest plastic bag ban, one that will cost a person a fine of $38,000 as well as possible four years in the hoosegow. Wow. A serious act of virtue signaling by an African nation- so says “On This Day.”

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We hope to promote the music of the Soft Machine at some point within the next 3-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when that celebrated day arrives.  We thank you.

[ii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner as well as their separate solo efforts one day.

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

[vi] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the great Motown acts but when we do, we will do ALL of them including Aretha Franklin.

[vii] Congressman Eric Swalwell, well-known for his lack of intellect, entered the fray on Monday, April 08, 2019, and was among those sorry low-end losers who had to beg for donations so he could appear on the debate stage.  There was no way in hell that anyone would ever vote the so-called ‘Farter-in-Chief’ for anything higher than the House seat he now holds.

[viii] Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper entered the race on March 04, 2019.  His most notable contribution to the Democratic Party’s nomination process was an admission that he ‘took his mother to see the porn classic, “Deep Throat,” not knowing fully what it was,’ he claimed mom asked to see the movie.  Think what you will.  STRANGE.

[ix] Governor Jay Inslee jumped into the running on March 01, 2019, and his big thing- and only thing- was that he was going to devote 100-percent of his time dueling with climate change.  He looks, sounds, and acts like a palooka and Democratic voters saw him for the POS he is.  He did not last very long.

[x] Congressman Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, an Iraq War vet, entered the race on April 21, 2019.  He seemed like a decent guy but when everyone around you is jostling one another to see who can go bat crap crazy far-far-far-left, Congressman Moulton stood no chance at ever winning the nomination.

The Democratic-Socialist Party of America- the DSPA- is the way station for funds from the Chi-Coms, Putin, the mullahs, and lesser socialist states- that end up in the hands of Antifa, BLM, and others of their ilk

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Ian Anderson released his next solo album, “Divinities- 12 Dances with God,” on May 02, 1995, an all instrumental album combining together a variety of styles.  Always working, Anderson’s creative juices were flowing at full speed and joining the eclectic musician were Andy Giddings (keyboards), Doane Perry (drums and percussion), joined by a seven-piece orchestra.  Anderson would go on a solo tour after the album was released and the first portion of the evening with fans was the entire “Divinities” album and after the intermission, he performed tunes from the catalog of Jethro Tull.  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your listening pleasure each day.  You will be glad you did.

  52. 2018 Thursday: James Alex Fields Jr. pleaded not guilty to federal hate crime charges in a car attack on a crowd of protesters opposing a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., on August 12, 2017; a 32-year-old woman died and dozens suffered grievous injuries.  Fields later pleaded guilty to 29 federal hate crime charges under a plea deal in which the prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty.

Trump reached out to big city Democratic mayors willing to help them with their violence problems but of course, they called him a “RACIST” for asking.  
  57. 2021 Monday:  Everyone knows the drill- stick around to discover the truth along with the rest of us- you will be glad you did…

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

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

[iii] Sadly, Detective was a short-lived band but one that had the potential to be as legendary as Led Zeppelin, if only Disco was not trashing the airwaves.  You will find their three albums on: (1) Tuesday, 29-July-2014, (2) Thursday, 31-July-2014, and (3) Friday, 01-August-2014.  We hope you will seek them out.

[iv] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

[vi] Look for the Clash sometime within the next 5-10 years.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[viii] It should be clear to all interested, well-informed readers that the Democrats could care less about black lives unless, of course, they can use their agonies to accomplish their perverted political goals.  Ask yourselves, why do blacks face murder and mayhem week after week in BLUE cities across the nation?  Why are Planned Parenthood centers predominantly near black and other minority communities?  Because to Democrats, ‘black lives don’t matter.’  Why then do blacks and other minorities continue voting for Democrats?

Z. 1941 Monday: During the Nazi drive into the Soviet Union, a pro-Nazi group declares the independence of the Ukraine. As Axis troops entered various towns and cities, they were astounded to see cheering citizens throwing flowers upon them. They were finally free from the hell imposed on them by Soviet thug Josef Stalin. Had the Germans played this differently, the world might be a completely different place.

Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un along the DMZ separating the two Koreas from one another.  President Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to walk across the dividing line onto North Korean soil and then the two crossed into South Korea where they held an impromptu meeting for nearly three hours.  Jealous Democrats and fake news promoters called the whole thing a ‘photo op’ when it might truly lead to peace and destroy Democratic Party 2020 hopes.   Meanwhile, in Khartoum, the capital of the Sudan, protests against continued military rule leads to violence what with seven killed and 181 injured.

Trump.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next ‘best of’ package on January 11, 1993, just in time for the wintertime blues, “Nightcap- the Unreleased Masters 1973-1991.”  This effort contains amazing music on two big discs most of them from albums but also some as singles or from EPs.  If you have yet to introduce the music of this seminal British rock band to your ears, well, this is a glorious way in which one can right that incredibly lethargic wrong.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering because it was so damned amazing.

[ii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[iii] Democrats in 2020 now want to lower the voting age to 16-year-olds as well as to felons, illegal aliens, and others who should not be able to vote.  If anything, voting age should be raised to 35 because most Americans do not begin undergoing the maturation process as they did 50 or more years ago.  What we are saying is that young people are little more than a bunch of sissies who should never be able to vote.  Let us restore it as the Constitution presented it that people of property should be the only ones able to vote.  You must have a stake in the country to do what’s right for her.

[iv] It’s no wonder as to WHY Jimmy Carter served but one term as president.  The guy was a whoosie.

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