210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.

  52. 2014 Tuesday: In Sierra Leone during the Ebola virus crisis, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan succumbs to the disease himself, the principal physician battling against it.  Meanwhile, in Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, the authorities claim that 100 of their citizens were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  IF Palestinians were killed, it’s because they were acting the fool- like usual.  In the wake of this, France announces it will send 8-million euros in aid to the Gaza.  Good for them, virtue-signaling is always good.
  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.
  54. 2016 Friday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party.  Needless to say, her fellow Democrats fall into a celebratory swoon and sex workers around the city see the numbers of their patrons spike.  Virginia Senator Tim Kaine becomes her running mate.  What a pair of losers.
  55. 2017 Saturday: U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint live-fire exercises in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile; experts said the North Korean launch showed that a substantial portion of the United States was now within the range of Kim Jong Un’s arsenal of missiles. 
  56. 2018 Sunday: Students in Dhaka, Bangladesh, launch protests around the nation demanding safer roadways.  In a country as poor as this one, they are incapable of doing the necessary infrastructure work to make their nation safe.
  57. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number.  Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  58. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $3.114.  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- Philippines: $4.590 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,579,970,824,046 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  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 Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

Trump confirms he is seeking a $2 billion arms deal including the main U.S. battle tank- the M1A1- as well as a restock on all other offensive weapons for the freedom-loving peoples of Taiwan.  Beijing goes ballistic and expresses their immense displeasure that the American running dogs would do such a horrible thing as to sell weapons to a free and independent country.  (Note- a year later, it would appear they paid us back with COVID-19…well, later this year.  Coincidence?  Don’t count on it).
  51. 2020 Friday: The economic news for the month of May is phenomenal with an increase of 2,509,000 new jobs and a decrease in unemployment to 13.3-percent.  The DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 27,110.98, +829.16 (3.15%); the NASDAQ closed at 9,814.08, +198.268 (2.06%), and the S&P closed at 3,193.93, +81.58 (2.62%). Hate to say it but the Democrats are shocked.  Meanwhile, in many American cities, Democrats are declaring their intention to defund big city police departments.  Again, we suspect that communist China is behind this crap.
  52. 2020 Friday A: Here are today’s COVID-19 statistics for the world: 6,724,516 confirmed cases, 394,018 confirmed deaths, and 2,996,832 confirmed recoveries the last number of which is glorious.  Still, we must condemn the communist government of a once-free China for sending this evil around the world to cover up their own internal problems.

  55. 2021 Saturday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 294,677 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 164,972 deaths  
  56. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,795,441 confirmed cases, 63,003 confirmed deaths (lowered number), and 2,059,703 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,329,867 confirmed cases, 36,973 confirmed deaths, and 1,970,341 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,535 confirmed cases, 502 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 441,676 confirmed cases, 5,889 confirmed deaths, and 215,268 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., South Carolina, birthplace of the U.S. Civil War: they have 593,948 confirmed cases, 9,752 confirmed deaths, and 549,380 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  57. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,569 confirmed cases, 6,418 confirmed deaths, and 832,932 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country-  Maldives, 104th country on the list: 67,538 cases of the virus, 182 confirmed deaths and 47,333 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  58. 2021 Saturday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,756.39, UP 179.35 points (+0.52%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,814.59, UP 199.98 points (+1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,229.89, UP 37.04 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.37 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.30 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.31%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,841.08 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.07%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $23,300.00 per troy oz., -1,000.00 (-4.12%).

  59. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.215 per gallon, $2.855 in Florida, $3.954 in Hawaii, and $3.597 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Iowa: $2.881.  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- Panama: $3.374 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,369,641,789,513 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 which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.  The third nation owning much of our debt is Brazil- they own $300 billion.[xvi]
  60. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #75 for the gibbering hyena- the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and boy, what a ‘czar’ she’s been- not shown up once to see just how insane things have become there, not to give us her customary high-pitched cackle to show she’s on the job.  WTF!  Meanwhile, One American News shared the latest border stats with its viewers today.  Are we ready?  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day Alone for caring for all these illegal aliens: $584,766,784, all of which is taxpayer money.  Next- (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for all these illegal aliens- $170,447,814,656, all of which again belongs to the taxpayers.  Imagine if they gave the descendants of slaves in this country the money as reparations instead of squandering it upon ILLEGAL ALIENS?  This is insane.  Next, (3) Number of Illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 1,746,953.  Round them up and deport them as fast as they flow in.  Finally, (4) Total Number of Illegals ESTIMATED to be in the U.S.: 35,746,953.  Since 2009, we have estimated the number at 35-50 million whereas now, we believe it is closer to 60-75 million.   These illegals suck away at the life’s blood of the American taxpayers, suck up our benefits, lower wages, drive up the costs of rents, overrun our hospitals, f**k up our schools, and commit millions of crimes.  Time to scoop them up and deport ALL of them NOW.
  61. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– NBC News is beginning to see the light (it must be killing them) and is refuting the notion that the southern border is closed, the story the Biden regime continues to pedal.  Speaking of the Biden regime, the Bidenistas in the White House and at the Department of Homeland Security have a new APP with which to enable the legions of illegal aliens to swamp across our southern frontier.  And you ask are the Bidenistas working on behalf of the Chi-Coms, or aren’t they?  The answer seems to speak for itself. 
  62. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Chi-Coms released Chow Hang Tung from the hoosegow.  She is one of the organizers of the commemoration of Tiananmen Square 1989 event.  Like the Turks hate talking about the Armenian Genocide, so, too, do the Chi-Coms hate talking about the massacre of more than 10,000-11,000 pro-democracy protesters (much less the extermination of the Uighurs, the Tibetans, and non-Han minorities).  Meanwhile, U.S. vaccine supplies arrive in South Korea.  Good.  Send them more and send some to the NORCs, too.  We don’t want them, especially not that Johnson & Johnson crap.  (Note to date, more than 4,200 people have died because of vaccine complications.  Any other drug on the market would already be pulled.  We favor Hydroxychloroquine as a preventative- f**k Neil Cavuto).  Elsewhere, after Twitter shut down the president of Nigeria- Muhammadu Buhari- for one of his tweets, Nigeria shut down Twitter.  That is all that needs to be done.  SHUT THEM DOWN.
  63. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Speaking of the Chi-Vi, things continue getting worse for Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says, “Joe Biden should follow the science and fire Dr. Fauci.”  Amen.  Next, Rep. Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Tony Fauci must testify before Congress now that his emails have exposed him.’  Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is demanding that “Phony Tony” resign NOW.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, now that he has called out Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci is once again receiving death threats from his unenlightened, ignorant enemies.  
  64. 2021 Saturday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– A bipartisan group of lawmakers are urging Joe Biden to begin pulling out our Afghan allies as the handover to the Afghan government continues.  We know what is going to happen there; only it will be worse than what befell the South Vietnamese.  Next, a group of Bidenistas met with their Israeli Defense Forces and guaranteed they would help defend the Jewish state.  We hope so.  In other anti-Joe Biden news, the state of Arizona is growing increasingly resistant to any talk of the Biden regime raising federal income taxes.  Good.  We must fight them on land, sea, in the air, and underground.   Speaking of Biden’s policies, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says that ‘Joe’s policies are killing the United States.’
  65. 2021 Saturday K: Political News I– Governor Steve Sisolak, D-NV, signed a bill into law today making MAIL-IN voting the law of the state.  (Note- we must play by their own game if we are to crush these scumbags).  Next, that ignorant, self-important a-hole- CNN’s Jake Tapper- swears that he will blacklist ANY REPUBLICAN from appearing on his show who refuses to admit that Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election.  (Note- we guess he’s going to have Liz Cheney and the other losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump on his show around the clock).   
  66. 2021 Saturday L: Political News II– The U.S. Department of Justice claims that it will NO longer seize the phone records of journalists.  (Note- this was frequent practice under the Obama-Biden regime for eight years- why would it change now?  Of course, they are going to continue seizing records).  In other crazy news, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen told leaders of the G7 to continue spending and spending, she says inflation will pass.  How the hell did this loser ever run the Fed?  This is insane.   Speaking of the G7, if the Biden regime can convince them to give him his GLOBAL CORPORATE TAX, he will get a ‘win.’  That is flipping crazy.   (Note- do not count President Donald J. Trump out.  Ever).  
  67. 2021 Saturday M: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump addressed more than one-thousand attendees at the North Carolina GOP Convention this evening and what a speech.  The Dems are going to wish they had not stolen the election because terrible things are coming their way.  We also learned that Lara Trump won’t be seeking the U.S. Senate seat of outgoing RINO Richard Burr.  She has two young kids- 1- and- 3-years-old who need their mother more than she needs politics.  President Trump endorsed Rep. Ted Budd, R-NC 13th congressional district, to succeed Senator Burr.  Elsewhere, a federal judge in California has tossed the three decades-plus ban on so-called ‘assault weapons,’ causing Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to go ballistic.  Perhaps it was the tossing of his beloved ban that led him to say ‘the state is NOT reopening on June 15 as the little closet cross-dresser promised.  Wow.
  68. 2021 Saturday N: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Within 24 hours, conservatives raised $100,000 for Rep. Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio-Cortez’s pobrecita abuela in Puerto Rico.  As you know, “The Fly” was crying yesterday about the condition of her poor little abuela’s house in Puerto Rico, doing what good communists do and that is to blame everyone else for their own problems.  Well, AOC must be embarrassed, thus she told her abuela ‘you cannot take this money, it will humiliate me.’  Poor abuela said today she ‘refuses to accept the money because it comes with onerous strings.’  What a flipping loser but her granddaughter, the Fly, is the real embarrassment, a national embarrassment.  Vote her out in 2022 along with the rest of the Squad.
  69. 2021 Saturday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3566 with a $52 million pot on the line: 04, 07, 08, 32, 45, and Mega 14.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #852 with a $286 million pot on the line. 44, 52, 54, 64, 69, and Powerball 26.  The California Lottery site is having technical issues tonight… first, here are the Super Lotto winners- out of 131,098 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $23,629 apiece.  One ticket was sold at (1) Rimpau Smoke Shop in Corona, CA 92881 and the second at (2) Super 1 Cigarette in Visalia, CA 93277.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball: out of 97,904 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,921 apiece.
  70. 2021 Saturday P: Ah, it’s the weekend, let’s hope it’s a slow news day…oh, wait!  President Donald J. Trump is speaking at the North Carolina GOP Convention in Greenville this evening.  That is going to send a shiver of cold fear down the backs of the Bidenistas and the Chi-Coms…
  71. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

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.

  70. 2017 Thursday: In Paris, a police van transporting criminals along the Champs Elysees suffers an attack by jihadists killing police officer and injuring two others.   Elsewhere, Australia beefs up its qualifications for one to become a citizen in their country by amending laws to demand stricter knowledge of the English language as well as a desire to become Australian and not remain some foreign-born piece of pond scum.  Wouldn’t it be great if the United States would do this?

  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.

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.

  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.

2022 Wednesday X: There’s always more…

[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.

106. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  63. 2016 Saturday: The Afghan government continues repelling Taliban attacks on the city of Kunduz.  Afghan and U.S. troops are keeping the jihadists at bay.  Half a world away, Syria and ISIS continue doing battle with one another and many parts of the city of Aleppo are smoldering ruins.  For every rocket attack, the Syrian government answers with airstrikes.  Civilians are fleeing in all directions.
  64. 2017 Sunday: Dictatorial thug leader of Turkey- Recep Tayyip Erdogan- ‘wins’ approval for an 18-article constitutional reform which thrusts the nation ever deeper into totalitarianism.  Elsewhere, due to the stupidity of Hamas and Fatah officials, the Gaza Strip’s ONLY power generating plants shuts down.  It has run out of fuel, its bills have gone unpaid, many among the leadership have skimmed off fortunes from money given to the Palestinian Authority and all they can do is to blame it on the ‘blockade.’  Look, dimwits, the answer is simple: stop building tunnels into Israel and do something for your people.  Period.

  66. 2019 Tuesday: While many of us love the Seattle Seahawks, there is no reason as to WHY the team made quarterback Russell Wilson the highest-paid QB in the game, giving him both a $65 million signing bonus as well as a four-year extension worth $140 million.  The rest of the team is struggling so it appears Seattle is going down the path the Baltimore Ravens went with QB Joe Flacco.  Where is Joe NOW?   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump vetoes a bill demanding an end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.
  67. 2020 Thursday: Jobless claims due to COVID-19, the Chinese gift to the world that won’t stop giving, come in at 5.2 million for the week.  Total claims since social distancing and economic shutdown hit 22 million Americans out of work.  This is all because of China.  We must make them pay when we come to the end of the pandemic, which we hope is soon.  Word continues to appear that demonstrate that the Wuhan Virus Crisis did indeed come out of a Chinese laboratory in the city of Wuhan where it just so happens the Chinese conduct biowarfare studies.  Although they continue lying that the virus came from somewhere else, who can believe a single word a communist regime says?  Communists always lie, it’s in their DNA which is why no one should take them at their word.  COVID-19 Statistics: currently, there are 2,151,199 confirmed cases around the planet what with 1 confirmed cases around the planet what with 143,725 confirmed fatalities as well as 541,501 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 672,931 confirmed cases with 34,386 confirmed deaths and 54,594 confirmed recoveries.  The Chinese claim 84,593 confirmed cases, 3,342 confirmed deaths and 79,112 confirmed recoveries.  Boy do the communists lie.

Trump what with 30 dead so far this month alone.  This tells us that the rhetoric used by feeble old Joe Biden and his Democratic Party henchmen-and-women is driving the nuts to go berserk, shooting, and killing and maiming innocent people.  It is clear many fear they are going to lose their weapons and since they have unfinished business, are going to act on it NOW.  Stop with all the HATE SPEECH, Joe, enough is enough.  (Note- the cops in Indianapolis say they are searching for a motive.  What the hell!  Mr. Hole wanted to die, and he had some people with whom he wanted to settle scores.  Period).
  76. 2021 Friday G: BULLS**T POLL OF THE DAY– a recent PEW Poll says that Joe Biden’s approval rating stands at 59-percent.  Please.  This nothing but crap.  Speaking of Joe Biden, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says, that ‘Joe Biden is not up to the task at hand, especially the Chi-Coms who are our biggest threat and someone we should have nuked back in 1951.  In other Joe Biden news, he is holding his first meeting with another foreign leader, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan, at the White House today.  We wonder who is speaking for him.   Anyhow, the two leaders agree that the Taiwan Strait must remain stable.
  77. 2021 Friday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– common sense people are beginning to ask WTF we shut our country down over the Chi-Com virus when hundreds of thousands of people continue swamping across our border and disappearing into the interior of the country?  If the federal government could give a flying f**k about how many of the invaders have COVID-19, then why should anyone else?  Speaking of the border crisis, President George W. Bush- an ‘esteemed former president’ if one ever existed (yeah, right) says he supports immigration reform but not amnesty.  George, we feel the same way about you as we do Jimmy Carter.  When either one of you dimwits says anything, we quickly move onto something else.   
  78. 2021 Friday I: JOE BIDEN REFUGEE NEWS–  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the dumb b***h who slurs her words bad enough already but with a mask strapped over her pie hole makes it even more difficult to understand what the hell she is saying chided Joe Biden on not taking in enough refugees.  Oh, please, Nance, please Joe, bring in some more winners like Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, like the Syrian shooter in Boulder, Colorado, like the Boston bombers, please, bring in some more of those America-hating POS, we need more of them ASAP.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden moves to placate our European allies and says he will remove Trump-era caps on the number of refugees our country accepts in.  That truly sucks.
  79. 2021 Friday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Someone said Chelsea “The Genius” Clinton may run for Congress.  Good God Almighty, please say it ain’t so.  She is as stupid as is the Fly, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she with her Boston College economics degree.   Then again, she would fit right in with all the dimwitted Democrats serving in Congress already like Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, and Congresswoman Sheila “Putty Puss” Jackson Lee, DS-TX 18th congressional district, and Congressman ‘Mr.’ James “Influence” Clyburn, DS-SC 6th congressional district, she would fit right in.   
  80. 2021 Friday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– Glenn Beck said today on his radio show that in the cities where Black Lives Matter protesters ran amok raping, pillaging, looting, robbing, and beating, there were a combined total of more than 6,000 additional homicides.  Coincidence?  We think not.  They are not a peace-loving group; they are fascist black-and-brown-shirted thugs in need of eradication.  Elsewhere, in other political news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has challenged the highly cerebral Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district to a debate on the Green New Deal.  Now, we would pay handsomely to get ringside seats to see this duel to the death, MTG doing battle with the Fly on pay-per-view-TV.  Sign us up now.
  81. 2021 Friday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– In other political news, we learn that the director for the new Black Panther sequel is NOT going to follow his WOKE liberal comrades and boycott Georgia.  Good.  ‘WOKE’ will go away when people pay it NO attention.  None of us are going to NFL, NBA, or MLB games ever again nor are we going to buy Coca-Cola® products, Nike® sportswear, or any of the other crap that is boycotting everything.  We are not going to see movies, we do not have to see how stupid we are, how great the Chi-Coms and perverts are, enough is enough.   Elsewhere, the great state of Florida passes an anti-riot bill.  About time someone does.  Look, government’s number one job is this: protecting the lives of its citizens and their property.  Plain, simple, and easy for the stupid to understand.  Once you raise an arm to throw a Molotov cocktail, you get shot.  Once you throw bricks and don’t stop when you are told to stop, you get shot.  Once you start looting, you are eligible to get shot.  This is the way it always was and should be again.
  82. 2021 Friday M: 2020 ELECTION NEWS– reports continue to arise that the number one person behind the changed election laws in numerous states and in the subsequent theft of the election from President Donald J. Trump is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s number one hired thug, attorney Mark Elias.  A partner at Perkins Cole, he is the head of their ‘political law’ department and this man- if we are to believe what we are now learning- is the number one operative behind the stolen election and the subsequent cover-ups of the theft.  In all states where election information has already been trashed, those states should have to hold another election at their expense.
  83. 2021 Friday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– We learn that Hunter Biden’s NEW book in which he talks about smoking crack, banging teenaged whores, and doing all sorts of other evil and disgusting stuff has sold a whopping 10,638 books in its first week.  According to Bill O’Reilly, this is ‘crap’ seeing as how Bill’s new book, “Killing the Mob” has already sold 60,000 copies and is not even on the shelves of bookstores yet.  In other news, people are lamenting the 13-year-old boy who was shot dead in Chicago the other night by a cop.  Adam Toledo, aka Lil Homicide and Baby Diablo was gangbanging with his buds at 2:30 in the morning, running around with a loaded gun, shot at cops, then ran away and dumped the gun just as the cops rolled up and got shot.  YOU don’t want to get shot, don’t be banging, don’t be shooting at cops, and don’t be running around in the middle of the night.  Period.   We shed no tears.  Next, Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, says yes indeed, he is going to resign.  Wow.
  84. 2021 Friday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– U.S. Interior Secretary Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the job, is dumping Trump era rules concerning the fossil fuel industry’s rights on public lands.  Apparently, oil and gas companies will no longer be able to drill for vital national resources leaving us dependent upon OPEC, Russia, and other Third World producers of energy.  This makes no sense.  Next, conservative House Republicans are forming the ‘America First Caucus,’  a group to continue the legacy of President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Minneapolis public schools are hurriedly switching over to online learning as the city (and the country) braces for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, the mother of slain EMT Breonna Taylor- Tamika Palmer- slams both State Representative Attica Scott, D-Louisville, and BLM, labeling both of them as ‘frauds’ in the aftermath of the shooting death of her daughter.  According to Ms. Palmer, she watched the TWO raise money off the death of Breonna without doing a damned thing to help her family.  Wow.  We understand.
  85. 2021 Friday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1651: 17, 27, 28, 50, 55, and Mega 25.  Out of 105,680 winning tickets, the highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $496 apiece.
  86. 2022 Saturday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album that came out is technically a Richard Manuel album although credited in some locations as a joint effort between Rick Danko and Richard Manuel.  “Live at O’ Toole’s Tavern” came out on July 20, 2009, and featured Manuel (pianos, vocals), Danko (bass, fiddle, guitars vocals), Jim Weider (guitars, bass), and a harmonica player.  One finds 18 glorious tunes here, many from the Band but others from elsewhere.  We certainly hope that everyone who enjoys both the Band and its individual components to seek this one out, give it a good listen, and to pick it up.  We think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

87. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MARCH 28, 2022, UPDATE A

An irate Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars last night over the latter quipping that Jada Pinkett Smith- ‘Mrs. Will Smith’- would be the perfect star for a “G.I. Jane” remake. Could it be that Rock enjoyed the curved slopes of Will’s wife, someone Will didn’t want with his wife in their notoriously open marriage? Or could it be Mr. and Mrs. Smith were arguing on the way to the event which is why Lupita Nyong’o sat between the power couple? To keep them from going at one-another?

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

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 233

87. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MARCH 28, 2022, UPDATE A:

Holi (Hindu holiday)

An irate Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars last night over the latter quipping that Jada Pinkett Smith- ‘Mrs. Will Smith’- would be the perfect star for a “G.I. Jane” remake.  Could it be that Rock enjoyed the curved slopes of Will’s wife, someone Will didn’t want with his wife in their notoriously open marriage?  Or could it be Mr. and Mrs. Smith were arguing on the way to the event which is why Lupita Nyong’o sat between the power couple?  To keep them from going at one-another? 

  1. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 482,811,749 confirmed cases, +697,129, 6,151,001 confirmed deaths, +2,698 and 417,343,460 confirmed recoveries, +826,268. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 81,649,220 confirmed cases, UP 27,332 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,003,994 confirmed deaths, UP 627,[i] and 64,638,519 confirmed recoveries, DOWN to 181,493.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]
  2. 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 554,641 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 190,786 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 432 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  3. 2022 Monday 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: 9,087,361 confirmed cases, 88,718 confirmed deaths, and 8,720,133 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,888,815 confirmed cases, 73,134 confirmed deaths, and 5,815,681 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 239,591 confirmed cases, 1,373 confirmed deaths, and 237,159 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,451,227 confirmed cases, 12,432 confirmed deaths, and 1,438,795 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Utah: they have 927,551 confirmed cases, 4,706 confirmed deaths, and 919,233 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,876,122 confirmed cases, 10,485 confirmed deaths, and 3,782,095 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Caribbean Netherlands, 195th place on the list: 8,150 cases of the virus, 31 confirmed death and 7,802 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                        
  5. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,955.89, UP 94.65 points (+0.27%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,354.90 UP 185.60 points (+1.31%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,575.52, UP 32.46 points (+0.71%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $104.61 per barrel, -1.35 (-1.27%).  The price of GOLD is $1,922.50 per troy oz., -17.30 (-0.89%) while the price of SILVER is $25.05 per troy ounce, -0.15 (-0.60%).  The price of PLATINUM is $986.30 per troy oz, -4.80 (-0.48%) while the price of COPPER is $4.72 per pound, -0.00 (-0.03%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,244.99 per troy oz., +10.90 (+0.49%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,800.00 per troy oz., +300.00 (+1.62%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,330,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,605.00 per USD/T, 0.00 (0.00%). The price of ZINC is $4,096.00 per USD/T., +29.50 (+0.73%).   The price of COCOA is $2,602.00 per USD/T, +40.00 (+1.56%).  The price of LUMBER is $999.50 USD 1,000 board feet -8.50 (-0.84%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.91 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.08, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 89.00 of theirs.    In Canadian Dollar, one greenback equals 1.25 and in Cape Verdean Escudo, a buck equals 100.34 and in Cayman Islands Dollar, one dollar equals 0.82 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.917 per gallon, $4.116 in Florida, $5.133 in Hawaii, and $4.739 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: West Virginia- $4.077.  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 166th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Hong Kong: $10.904 per U.S. Gallon.[ix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,348,091,355,863 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Belgium the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Republic of China- Taiwan.  This nation holds $235,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– As French President Emanuel “Peewee Herman” Macron continues trying to be some sort of power broker in the Russo-Ukrainian War, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that ‘Macron and France are TERRIFIED of Russia.’   Amen.[xi]  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues trying to clean up the far too many gaffes during his four-day visit to Europe to pump up the allies in the fight against the Russkies.  The Kremlin said that Joe Biden’s idiotic remarks while visiting Europe are ‘a cause for concern.’  After all, senile Joe is calling for regime change in Moscow.   Finally, the mayor of Irpin, Ukraine, says that Ukrainian troops liberated that city from the clutches of the Russians.   Next, declining Pope Francis continues calling for PEACE in Ukraine.
  8. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our illustrious ‘border czar,’ the amazing Vice President Kamala Harris has been the guardian of the nation’s borders for- get this- 360 days.  Worse than that, the incredibly ignorant VP has not shown up to do a single day’s work in 274 days.  Yikes.  The cost of caring for the millions of illegal aliens since the first day of the year is $552,916,426 while the cost of caring for them since Joe Flipping Biden became the ‘Big Dog’ is $42,824,885,039.  Shocking.  The estimated number of illegals to have crossed our border for the year so far is 891,087 while the conservative low estimate of illegals living in the country is about 45,266,349.  We contend the number is treble that, possibly even quadruple which means we must round them up and deport them the f**k out of our country and back to the Third World cesspools from which they were spawned. (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).
  9. 2022 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Abu Dhabi Sovereign CEO announced today that it is pausing investment developments in Russia.  Next, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is denying there are any problems with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu.  Some speculated over the weekend that perhaps the minister of defense suffered a heart attack which was WHY he has been AWOL.  In other news, in yet another slap to the impotent Biden regime, the Taliban now says that ‘women cannot board airplanes in their crap-hole country without a male chaperone.’
  10. 2022 Monday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Shanghai, China, is split between lockdown and being open what with a resurgence in cases of the Chi-Vi.  Hmmm, it’s an election year, are the Chi-Coms going to let loose on the world yet another strain of their lab-created virus?  You can count on it.   In another clue that COVID-19 is going to ‘blossom yet again’ later this year, part of Joe Biden’s bonkers $5.8 trillion budget for 2023 includes $15 billion for ‘election funding’ with $5 billion going directly to the United States Post Office for mail-in balloting.   In other news, NBA’s vaccine-exempted Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets says he will ‘continue fighting back against all Chi-Vi-related vaccine mandates.’
  11. 2022 Monday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $53.28 (2) AstraZeneca: $65.38 (3) Novavax: $73.85 (4) Merck & Company: $81.21 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $177.75  (6) BioNTech: $ (7) Moderna: $173.08.

  14. 2022 Monday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $29.34 (2) Beyond Meat: $49.14  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $62.96.
  15. 2022 Monday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $145.98 (2) Lowe’s: $213.78 (3) Home Depot: $314.23 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $565.21 (5) Amazon: $3,379.81.  (Note- in some parts of the United States, Walmart is halting the sale of cigarettes.  Doesn’t Walmart understand that smokers pay the bulk of taxes that make schools and public instruction possible?  Dumb shits).
  16. 2022 Monday O: Economic News– Los Angeles Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti says, ‘oh, no, no, no, the reason for the mass exodus out of the City of Angels is NOT because of the out-of-control crime rates but the cost of housing.’  ‘Mr. Grub,’ IF you did not support being a waste ground for illegal aliens, housing costs would go down, wages and benefits up, and no one would be abandoning the city, but the appalling crime rates are driving people hither and yon due to your ignorant, asinine policies.  Next, S & P Global forecasts a contraction of 8.5-percent in Russia.
  17. 2022 Monday P: President Donald J. Trump News– The once and future President Donald J. Trump said of Joe Biden’s leadership that ‘it’s one train wreck after another.’   In other news, a left-wing federal judge said that ‘Donald J. Trump corruptly attempted to obstruct Congress’ on the sham 01-06-2021 false flag operation, the one engineered by corrupt Democrats and their overseas overseers.
  18. 2022 Monday Q: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden debuted his insane $5.8 trillion budget today and then answered prearranged questions on his cheat sheet.  When peppered with questions regarding his haphazard remarks while overseas, the befuddled ‘46th president’ said his remarks on Vladimir Putin were his personal outrage on the actions of Mr. Putin in Ukraine and nothing more.  Good to know, f**king Joe.   Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s comments on Vladimir Putin are ‘not helpful in any regard.’  Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, said that ‘Joe Biden’s lifting of tariffs on the Chi-Coms hurts the American people.’  Finally, U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, slammed Joe Biden’s new ‘budget’ saying that it does not ‘contain enough money for defense.’
  19. 2022 Monday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Israel’s permanent ambassador to the United Nations- Danny Danon- says that ‘Joe Biden is willing to do anything to pull off the Iranian nuclear deal, anything.’  Neocon John Bolton says that if there is ‘any nuclear deal with Iran, Congress must be the ones reviewing it.’  U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken says that the U.S. and her allies will work to counter Iran and her proxies malevolent actions around the world.  Sure.  Iran said, ‘Oh, no, no, the reason for the Iran deal not being consummated is due to Joe Biden’s bungling’ and nothing else.  Brigadier General Blaine Holt said of Joe Biden that the growing lack of respect for the Biden regime is imperiling the United States.
  20. 2022 Monday S: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster II– The income tax evasion into President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, is gathering steam, a fact that poses dire danger for the crumbling, illegitimate regime.   Next, a new poll form Hart Research/NBC News says that Joe Biden’s overall approval ratings are a disastrous 40-percent.  In other disastrous news for the unstable Biden regime, National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan has had to clarify yet again that the United States will ‘NEVER’ be the first to use chemical weapons even though befuddled Joe continues saying he might.  Finally, a new audit of Joe Biden’s Internal Revenue Service claims the tax-collection agency routinely sent COVID-19 relief payments in the billions to DEAD Americans.  Wow.
  21. 2022 Monday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Nancy Pelosi’s infamous FALSE FLAG COMMITTEE in the U.S. House of Representatives is going to announce contempt charges for both famed conservative economist Peter Navarro and former President Trump aide, Dan Scavino.
  22. 2022 Monday U: Political News I– Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden still is not acting like a wartime president.’  Republicans, meanwhile, are pushing Joe Biden to push the Chi-Coms to withdraw their support for Russia.  Like that’s going to happen.   Elsewhere, Senator “Creepy Cory” Booker said of the questions asked of his soul sister, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson that while they were ‘disappointing,’ they were ‘not racist.’  Oh, thanks, “Creepy Cory.”  Next, Senator Bernie Sanders, CPUSA-VT, wants to slam U.S. corporations with tax rates approximating 95-percent.
  23. 2022 Monday V: U.S. Supreme Court News I– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas- fresh out of the hospital- is joining his colleagues in oral arguments remotely.  Meanwhile, Democrat Party lunatics are pursuing his wife, Ginni, for her communications with then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on January 06, 2021.  They act like her interactions with Meadows were code for the VIOLENT INSURRECTION the lying Democrat scum and their RINO allies use against the American people.  To those Dems and RINOs, we say, “F**K YOU.”
  24. 2022 Monday W: Popular Culture News– Following last night’s outrageous behavior at the Oscars last night when actor Will Smith slapped host, Chris Rock, for having made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, and the movie, “G.I. Jane,” Congresswoman Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, CPUSA-MA 7th congressional district, defended Smith’s actions (as did numerous others).  The reason for the defense is that Ms. Smith suffers from alopecia like Congresswoman Pressley and so it goes.  Other black women leapt to the defense of Will Smith for having ‘defended his wife’s honor.’  However, we believe it’s because Chris Rock may have been yet another individual to have had ‘closeness’ with Mrs. Smith.  Ah, well, at the end of the evening, Will Smith won the Oscar for best male actor for his portrayal of Serena and Venus Williams in the movie, “King Richard.”  (Note- most of us believe that Smith is little more than a punk).  The Academy says that it’s launching a review of the incident and that it could strip the Oscar from Will Smith should the findings go against him.
  25. 2022 Monday X: Tranny News of the Day– Trannys- chicks with dicks- are up in arms what with Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, signing into law the Parental Rights in Education bill, aka House Bill 1557, the one Democrats and other drooling, left-wing goobers continue labeling the ‘DON’T SAY GAY BILL’ which prohibits discussing sexuality for kids in kindergarten through Grade 3.  Disney vows to fight the law with every fiber it possesses, expressing moral outrage.  The world’s once-greatest theme park and movie production company says the law ‘should never have been passed.’  Okay.  NO more money going to Disney.  Shutting down our Disney + account.  We can locate depravity elsewhere.
  26. 2022 Monday Y: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #968 with a jackpot of $195 million up for grabs: 11, 18, 39, 58, 62, and Power 03.  Out of 47,369 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,480.

80. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2022, UPDATE A

According to Tucker Carlson, everyone’s ‘hero’ Volodymyr Zelensky has banned all opposition political parties, 11 of them, to be precise, an action he carried out over the weekend. What’s up with that? According to Tucker, the American people have a right to know what’s going on in that country seeing as how we are footing the bill for their part of the Russo-Ukrainian War. This mess is far more complex than anyone thought- WTF is going on?

80. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2022, UPDATE A:

According to Tucker Carlson, everyone’s ‘hero’ Volodymyr Zelensky has banned all opposition political parties, 11 of them, to be precise, an action he carried out over the weekend.  What’s up with that?  According to Tucker, the American people have a right to know what’s going on in that country seeing as how we are footing the bill for their part of the Russo-Ukrainian War.  This mess is far more complex than anyone thought- WTF is going on?   

  1. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 472,607,032 confirmed cases, +1,537,890, 6,105,514 confirmed deaths, +4,501 and 408,506,293 confirmed recoveries, +1,414,550. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 81,448,402 confirmed cases, UP 38,301 from yesterday’s reporting, 998,840 confirmed deaths, UP 907,[i] and 63,254,918 confirmed recoveries, UP 248,156.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]
  2. 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 549,387 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 186,332 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 425 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Monday 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: 9,072,268 confirmed cases, 88,386 confirmed deaths, and 8,539,835 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,879,715 confirmed cases, 72,767 confirmed deaths, and 5,806,948 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 238,764 confirmed cases, 1,368 confirmed deaths, and 237,396 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,446,845 confirmed cases, 12,355 confirmed deaths, and 1,434,490 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Arizona: they have 1,992,471 confirmed cases, 28,547 confirmed deaths, and 1,939,155 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,785,813 confirmed cases, 10,431 confirmed deaths, and 3,720,870 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Yemen, 187th place on the list: 11,801 cases of the virus, 2,142 confirmed death and 8,931 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,552.99, DOWN 201.94 points (-0.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,838.46 DOWN 55.38 points (-0.40%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,461.18, DOWN 1.94 points (-0.043%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $112.85 per barrel, +11.20 (+11.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,932.80 per troy oz., -10.40 (-0.54%) while the price of SILVER is $25.37 per troy ounce, -0.25 (-0.98%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,041.20 per troy oz, +9.90 (+0.96%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.01 (-0.14%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,564.18 per troy oz., -20.16 (-0.78%). The price of RHODIUM is $19,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,380,000.00 per CNY/T,-0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,515.00 per USD/T, +134.00 (+3.96%). The price of ZINC is $3,920.00 per USD/T., +94.00 (+2.46%).   The price of COCOA is $2,521.00 per USD/T, -16.00 (-0.63%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,128.30 USD 1,000 board feet -57.00 (-4.81%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000024.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.91 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.40, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 99.15 of theirs.    In Armenian Dram, one greenback equals 487.77 and in Aruban Florin, a buck equals 1.78 and in Australian Dollar, one dollar equals 1.35 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.855 per gallon, $4.167 in Florida, $5.087 in Hawaii, and $4.726 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: South Dakota- $3.929.  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 159th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Italy: $9.084 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,333,182,116,017 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Japan the next largest holder of U.S. debt is People’s Republic of China.  This nation holds $1,072,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says that ‘Jerusalem is the proper place to hold talks with his Russian enemies.’  Next, the IAEA claims to have a deal brewing to protect nuclear facilities in Ukraine.  We continue asking a very important question about the United Nations: why do they exist?  They are not raising troops to enter Ukraine and bring peace to the nation.  No, they sit around like the losers they are looking the other way.  Expel them from the country NOW and let them relocate to Beijing with the puppet-masters. Next, a NATO official- unnamed of course- says that the Russo-Ukrainian War is rapidly becoming a stalemate.
  8. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Former Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell says that ‘Joe Biden waiting for Brussels to act gives Vladimir Putin running room in Ukraine.’  In other Ukraine-related news, Tucker Carlson reported tonight that over the weekend, President Zelensky banned 11 political parties which brought him additional power.  He also is cracking down on domestic media outlets.
  9. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our esteemed- no, our exquisite Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 353 days and it’s been 267 days since she showed up on scene to do the job.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the U.S. since January 01, 2022, is in our estimation $507,024,800.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens in our country is an appalling $42,778,994,043.  Next, since the first day of the year, we estimate 818,962 illegals have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border which means we could see close to 3 million illegal aliens invading our country by the end of the year.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegals in our country is around 45,194,224 which in our view is EXTREMELY LOW.  We believe the number to be around 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is horrible.  Round ‘em up, imprison them for 20-30 years forcing them to work off their debt, and then deport them back to whence the f**k they came.  (Sources for 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 an honest-to-God education back in the day when educators ‘educated’ rather than ‘indoctrinated’).
  10. 2022 Monday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $54.19 (2) AstraZeneca: $63.48 (3) Novavax: $78.56 (4) Merck & Company: $79.06 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $175.83  (6) BioNTech: $170.12 (7) Moderna: $175.38.
  11. 2022 Monday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $99.94 (2) Boeing: $185.90 (3) General Dynamics: $236.07 (4) Lockheed Martin: $440.00 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $446.60.
  12. 2022 Monday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.11 (2) DuPont: $76.75 (3) 3M: $148.58 (4) Honeywell: $193.02  (5) Teijen: $1,388.00.
  13. 2022 Monday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $29.68 (2) Beyond Meat: $48.41  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $60.95.  
  14. 2022 Monday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $144.23 (2) Lowe’s: $227.60 (3) Home Depot: $329.37 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $555.53 (5) Amazon: $3,220.83.
  15. 2022 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is extending travel bans on Chi-Com officials over their persecution of Uighur Muslims and other religious and/or ethnic minorities in the People’s Republic of China.  Next, as World War III continues to brew, senile Joe Biden warns American businesses and corporations to expect Russian cyberattacks.  Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris has done again: since June of this year, a 10th staffer has thrown in the towel and said, “NO MÁS!”  That’s right, the national security adviser to the VP- Nancy McEldowney tossed in the towel and is getting the hell out of the slow-witted VP’s office for better environs.
  16. 2022 Monday O: Political News I– Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, Republican, told Newsmax today that she would be honored to fill the seat of recently deceased Congressman Don Young, R-AK.  Next, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, GOP, governor vetoes transgender ‘girls’ sports ban.  Uh, oh.  It appears the chicks with the dicks will be playing with the girls.   In other fascinating news, black employees of Google are suing POS Sundar Pichai and Google over racial discrimination towards them.
  17. 2022 Monday P: U.S. Senate News I– Hearings for U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer’s replacement- Judge Ketanji Brown- commenced today.  Everyone was respectful, U.S. Senate Judiciary Chairman “Drippin’ Dick” Durbin, DS-IL, said ‘there will be NO disruptions,’ and when Senator Josh Hawley’s turn came for opening remarks, he gave her a head’s up that he would be asking questions as to WHY she was so lenient with child rapists, pornographers, and pedophiles.  This led to immediate outrage in the press over him bringing up this issue.  What an evil, evil white man, to ask a potential SCOTUS nominee as to why she gave light sentences to child molesters?   Unlike hearings for GOP Supreme Court nominees, no one raised a ruckus in the gallery on Day 1 and had to be removed from the room.  Contrast that with the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.  Wow.
  18. 2022 Monday Q: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #965 what with a $156 million jackpot on the line: 01, 15, 26, 63, 65, and Power 16.  Out of 42,340 winning tickets, the highest winners were 29 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $411 apiece.

The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries. Good, let them be the guinea pigs.

  61. 2017 Friday: J.C. Penney- the company that set the standard for commercial retail stores- announces that it’s going to close between 120 to 130 stores as well as two distribution centers.   The store has made poor decisions by bringing in younger, more hip leaders in the organization that have trashed the brand and ruined the legacy of its founder.

Billy Graham arrived at the library bearing his name in Charlotte, N.C., where he would lie in repose for two days.  Meanwhile, at the Winter Olympics in South Korea, American men won the gold medal in curling in a decisive upset of Sweden; it was only the second curling medal in U.S. history.  (Editor’s note: curling is a bullshit sport).  Finally, in the aftermath of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, WOKE liberal corporations such as Hertz Rent-a-Car, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and First National Bank of Omaha sever ties with the National Rifle Association.
  63. 2019 Sunday: In the 91st Academy Awards, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen[x] wins four big awards while “Black Panther,” “Green Book” (Best Picture), and “Roma” which had four awards.  It was tough going between “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Black Panther,” both films were extremely popular.  It’s a shame Chadwick Boseman couldn’t have won Best Actor.

  65. 2021 Wednesday: Day 36 of the Biden Regime- Sean Hannity reports that the Democrats  are striving to find a way with which, they can remove the nuclear codes from the responsibilities of the president, i.e., the commander-in-chief which in this case is ‘Joe Biden’ (in truth, Barack Obama via Kamala Harris).  House Democrats want to hold sole authority for launching nuclear weapons should the necessity arise the United States needs to launch them.  Why would the Democrats be striving to weaken the powers of the president? 
  66. 2021 Wednesday A: Much to the disgust of New York Attorney General Leticia James, the ever-volatile chief lawmaker of the Empire State, no charges will be filed against the seven Rochester police officers involved in the death of druggie Daniel Prude, a doped-up fool who was naked but for a spit hood on his head.  Ms. James sought to make the case a focal point of her career, but her hopes were dashed when a grand jury found the officers behaved within department policy. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday B: Failed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is a ‘yes vote’ on the confirmation of Judge Merrick Garland to be the nation’s next attorney-general.  “Cocaine Mitch” joins ranks with several other RINOs to announce a ‘yes vote’ for the wily evader of all pertinent questions.   Elsewhere, 13 Republican House members urge the FCC chair to back ‘free speech’ over leftist demands for ‘censorship’ of all speech other than what they approve.   Meanwhile, the Dems hold hearings on Capitol Hill in the House with which to forge ahead of de-platforming One America News, Newsmax, and Fox News Channel.  We expect they will soon come after Talk Radio as well as online speech in blogs.    Finally, 14 House Republicans are requesting the FBI provide information on just how deep Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell’s ties go to communist China.  The Republicans want to know just how compromised the government is by the Democrat’s schlepping of a Chi-Com intelligence agent.  We want to know the answers, too.
  68. 2021 Wednesday C: The White House press briefing room is cleared and cleaned after an unnamed reporter tests positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hold hearings on Republican-requested curbs on the Democrats scheme to federalize ALL voting via the H.R. 1 ‘For the People’ bulls**t bill currently being pushed by the Dems.  This bill is wholly unconstitutional.   Elsewhere, RINO Congressman Fred Upton, Michigan 6th District, finds himself censured yet again over his recent vote to expel Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from the haloed halls of Congress over her support of President Donald J. Trump.  Cass County, Michigan, slapped the censure on him today.   Finally, former President Barack Hussein Obama says that ‘white resentment and resistance’ is what stalled discussion of reparations for those descended from slaves.[xi]
  69. 2021 Wednesday D:  Free Speech founder Bradley Smith says the ‘Democrats targeting conservatives is a rank abuse of power.’  Yet, the Democrats are working overtime to prevent conservative speech being heard anywhere.  Elsewhere, another federal judge bans the enforcement of the ban of deporting illegal aliens.  Under the Biden regime, ALL illegal aliens can remain in the country.  Also- why aren’t the Democrats weeping and wailing over the big blue Quonset huts down along the southern border filled to the brim with the 5,000 illegal aliens being apprehended per day?  When Trump was president, they were gnashing their teeth, smearing their fetid bodies with ashes, donning sackcloth, and scourging their backs.  Now, not so much.  Hypocrites.
  70. 2021 Wednesday E: The International Olympic Committee is preparing to announce its preferred bidder for the 2032 Summer Olympics.  Who could it be?  Russia?  The Chi-Coms?  Iran?  We’ll have to wait and see.  Speaking of Iran, people are speculating that all the missiles being fired out of the crap-hole country are a message directed at the ‘Biden administration.’   Elsewhere, everyone was awaiting information as to when the court date for aged rocker Bruce “I Love Obama” Springsteen[xii] were going to be.  Then, we heard the court threw out the drunken driving charges against the “Boss.”   In other sad news, the Cancel Culture now labels the movie, “Grease,” as being BAD.  It’s bad because they claim there’s misogyny, that it’s sexist, that it’s homophobic, and that it slut-shames.’  Gee whiz sounds like a movie everyone should see.  This is the trouble when a bunch of morons attempts to judge the past by the present.  Remember lefties, one day, YOU will be the ones a future generation is judging.   
  71. 2021 Wednesday F: A recent anthropological study suggests that when early humans came to the Americas between 10-12 thousand years ago (although evidence suggests human habitation in North America as far back as 60,000 years), dogs traveled here with them.   In other news, an upcoming U.S. report lays the blame for the death of U.S.-Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi directly at the feet of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday G: Democrats are set to vote on their PORKULUS, aka the COVID-19 Relief Bill this Friday.  Out of $1.9 trillion (money being borrowed from the Chi-Coms), $350 billion is going to state and local governments (think Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Mayor Eric Garcetti, and other BIG BLUE STATE liberal locales.  Another $86 billion is going to fund union pension plans (think teachers’ unions and the like), $129 billion to schools, whether they reopen or not, another $15 billion to Medicaid expansion (think FREE healthcare for illegal aliens), $30 billion for public transit (liberals hate private cars), and at least $500 million for the arts, humanities, museums, and libraries.  ONLY 9-percent of this appalling amount of cash is going to Chinese Virus needs.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says, ‘it’s crazy to borrow money to fund this liberal wish list of bailouts, handouts, giveaways, and bull crap.’  However, more than 150 BIG BUSINESS executives support this insanity as they hope to latch their grubby mitts onto this handout of money borrowed from Beijing.    
  73. 2021 Wednesday H: Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, serving on the House task force on the Chi-Coms says there is NO way the Chi-Coms should host the Olympics and that to have the American flag flying in the PRC would be wrong.  The Chi-Coms bear full responsibility for the deaths of victims of the ‘VID and that to honor them would be to dishonor everyone else. 
  74. 2021 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 112,214,084 confirmed cases, +389,387, 2,487,568, confirmed deaths, +10,900, and 63,368,513 confirmed recoveries, +269,020.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,526,532 confirmed cases, up 63,214 from yesterday’s reporting, 507,469 confirmed deaths, UP 2,234, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last four-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 178,955 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the hell is it you feeble old Chi-Com stooge?  It seems that everyone around ‘Pro-China Joe’ is ‘Pro-Chi-Coms.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday 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: 3,543,162 confirmed cases, 49,895 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 339,051 confirmed cases, 4,947 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Oklahoma: currently, they have 421,010 confirmed cases, 4,264 confirmed deaths, and 403,159 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 759,572 confirmed cases, 5,634 confirmed deaths, and 712,555 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Mexico: 2,052,266 confirmed cases, 181,809 confirmed deaths, and 1,607,869 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, medical researchers now fear coronavirus variants.  Will they subject us to continued lockdowns, restrictions, and intimidation?  F**k them.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ says it’s shipping 14.5 million doses of the Wuhan Virus Crisis vaccine to the states this week.   Finally, the FDA says that Johnson & Johnson’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine meets emergency usage standards.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,961.86, UP 424.51 points (+1.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,597.97, UP 132.77 points (+0.99%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,925.43, UP 44.06 points (+1.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.00 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.34%) while the price of SILVER is $28.01 per troy ounce, +0.15 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,275.40 per troy oz, +17.50 (+1.39%) while the price of COPPER is $4.32 per pound, +0.02 (+0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,442.50 per troy oz, +89.50 (+3.80%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.45 per barrel, +0.23 (+0.36%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.36.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000020 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, new home sales are up by 4-percent whereas new mortgages are down by 11-percent.
  77. 2021 Wednesday L: The state attorney general of West Virginia- Patrick Morrissey- rejects lawmakers’ calls to ban or censor news programming.   Meanwhile, Donald Trump teases his upcoming speech at CPAC by suggesting that he’s going to blast enfeebled Joe Biden and tease his upcoming 2024 run for the White House.  This would explain why the Dems are seeking to make Joe Biden a ‘prime minister’ and neuter his presidency (if you can call it that).  Next, noted legal scholar Jonathan Turley suggests the ‘new red scare’ is intimidating conservative voices into silence.  Regarding this, Arizona GOP Congressman Andy Biggs says the ‘pressure on media platform providers to silence conservative voices is intense.  Finally, Palm Beach County, Florida, refuses to lower flags for famed radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Powerball and Super Lotto drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3537 with a $23 million on the line: 07, 34, 38, 44, 47, and Mega 07.  Out of 113,786 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $18,478.  One ticket was sold at a Chevron in Los Angeles, CA  while the second was at Sky Fuel in El Cajon, CA 92021.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball #823 with a $90 million jackpot just waiting to be grabbed by some lucky individual: 04, 33, 43, 53, 65, and Powerball 21.  Out of 56,233 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $32,139.
  79. 2021 Wednesday N: A former aid to New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo details the ongoing sexual harassment she suffered at the hands of this slack-jawed bottom-feeder.  Shame, Andrew, shame.  Elsewhere, a misguided poll reports that a majority of Republicans back Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Chinese Virus Relief Bill.  We do not believe this report.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasts the Democrats’ attempt at de-platforming conservative news media sites.  He also says that President Donald J. Trump’s help in retaking the House for the GOP is going to be extremely important.   Next, failed- and- censured Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO, continues bad-mouthing President Donald J. Trump, blaming him for the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter- led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the very same riots used by Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to turn Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill and White House into a Baghdad-like Green Zone.  Some wag on Newsmax said that Congresswoman Cheney is auditioning for a future job on CNN (or better- MSNBC).  Liz, from all of us to you, “SHUT YOUR RINO MOUTH!”  Congressman McCarthy whip this RINO into line or strip her of her committee assignments the same way the RINOs did Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene.   
  80. 2021 Wednesday O: Grant Stinchfield reports on Newsmax that Chi-Com facial recognition software is being used in the United States.   As he says, ‘overreaching surveillance in the U.S. is infringing on every American’s civil liberties.’  As he says, the Chi-Coms tested the software on Uighur Muslims who slave away in Xinjiang concentration camps on behalf of Coca-Cola, Nike, Apple, and other global corporations (as well as have their organs harvested for the global organ market) and now with the help of Democrats like ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and others are transforming the entire world into a vast surveillance state.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ the old coot he’s also revoking Trump-imposed bans on the numbers of foreign workers and Green Card holders allowed into the United States.  In a country beset by Chi-Com-caused Panda Pandemic unemployment, ‘Old Joe’ is flooding the country with hundreds of thousands (and soon millions) of people who are going to Americans’ jobs.  Time for the RED STATES to form a new country and abandon ship.   In other news, calls for the impeachment of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continue to grow led by Democrats in state government.
  81. 2021 Wednesday P: Jen Psaki says 11 million illegal alien fence-jumpers and river-swimmers and visa-overstays will soon have a pathway to citizenship.  The Dems continue braying about ’11 million, 11 million, 11 million’ when in fact, sources within the government say the number is closer to 30 to 50 million illegal aliens hiding in the shadows except, of course, when they commit crimes on one another and against U.S. citizens.  When the 11 million illegals are ‘legalized,’ they are going to receive free health care, free housing, free food stamps, free in-state tuition, free transportation, free this, free that while American citizens foot the bill and languish without jobs. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana.  The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries.  Good, let them be the guinea pigs.  Next, the White House says a call between President Biden and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will ‘happen soon.’  White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday that a classified U.S. report confirms the fact that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the hit on Jamal Khashoggi.  C’ est la vie.

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “Chicago 1970”- came out on August 07, 2020.  The album featured a stripped down, lean, mean, music-fighting machine featuring NO female vocalist for the first time in the group’s history.  However, the band did feature Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  You can see, hear, and feel Richard Thompson’s growing power within the band, power that would eventually propel him out on his own being a rocker at heart.  We love this album as we know you will so why waste time?  Seek it out now, give it a listen, and make it a part of your daily listening enjoyment.  You will be glad you did.  Undoubtedly!

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2022, BLOG POST #4,452

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

Wednesday, February 24, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

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…


Thursday, February 24, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two different occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ii] Juan Peron’s wife, Eva Peron, is the woman who that dingbat from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez models her loser self after which is why we have bestowed upon her the name, “Baby Evita.”

[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 definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of George Thorogood but when we do you will be the first to know. 

[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.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] In 2020, Democrats are whining that Donald Trump wanted a quid pro quo from Ukraine to get U.S. military aid.  Yet here, we have a prime example as to WHY and HOW foreign aid is doled out by countries around the world.  President Jimmy Carter said that ‘he would consider human rights abuses before doling out American aid to countries around the world.  Quid pro quo?  You had better flipping believe it and a damned good one in our view so Democrats, stop with the f**king sniveling, enough is enough already.

[viii] In 2019, the question is, “Is the late John Dingell looking UP or is he looking DOWN?

[ix] 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.

[x] 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.

[xi] The real reason as to WHY talk of reparations stalled is because (1) it’s crazy, there is NO one alive today descended from slavery prior to 1865 and (2) Democrats love talking about it but will never do anything to solve it as once they solve it, they can no longer use it as a drum to beat around the clock.  Besides, there are so many interracial couples, kids, and others so how is it going to work, is the WHITE spouse going to hand the BLACK spouse a check?  What’s more, what the liberals never tell you is that like the COVID-19 relief, the recipients will have to pay taxes on this money.  When it comes to liberals there are no FREE lunches.  Period.  It’s also important to note that Obama would never have been elected TWICE without white voters so Mr. ‘Unqualified President (due to being born in Kenya and not in the United States) Obama, STFU.

[xii] We will never promote the music of this no-talent POS.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

This should surprise NO ONE: Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau is the FIRST NOMINEE in this year’s Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award. Unanimously selected by the chef-authors, early odds-making guarantees he will come in at the top of the list in January 2023 unless, of course, a far worse POS manages to edge him out…

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 269

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-NINETY-FOUR OF THE BIDEN REGIME

49. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2022, UPDATE A:

This should surprise NO ONE: Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau is the FIRST NOMINEE in this year’s Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Unanimously selected by the chef-authors, early odds-making guarantees he will come in at the top of the list in January 2023 unless, of course, a far worse POS manages to edge him out…

  1. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 421,926,659 confirmed cases, +1,935,290, 5,891,718 confirmed deaths, +11,171 and 346,321,278 confirmed recoveries, +2,449,746. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 80,014,390 confirmed cases, UP 98,656 from yesterday’s reporting, 958,115 confirmed deaths, UP +2,618,[i] and 51,370,553 confirmed recoveries, UP 351,238 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 508,731 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 145,479 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 394 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 8,880,750 confirmed cases, 83,910 confirmed deaths, and 8,870,922 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,819,172 confirmed cases, 68,579 confirmed deaths, and 3,792,613 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 233,640 confirmed cases, 1,292 confirmed deaths, and 232,348 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,410,658 confirmed cases, 11,615 confirmed deaths, and 1,399,285 confirmed recoveries (lazy bastards- it’s still mostly the weekend for this backward state).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New Hampshire: they have 293,697 confirmed cases, 2,333 confirmed deaths, and 288,281 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,523,464 confirmed cases, 9,828 confirmed deaths, and 3,361,225 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Tanzania, 155th place on the list: 33,549 cases of the virus, 796 confirmed death and 32,753 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,079.18, DOWN 232.85 points (-0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,548.07 DOWN 168.65 points (-1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,348.87, DOWN 31.39 points (-0.72%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $91.66 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.11%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.80 per troy oz., -1.20 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $23.95 per troy ounce, +0.07 (+0.31%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,069.50 per troy oz, -23.20 (-2.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, -0.01 (-0.20%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,315.42 per troy oz., -50.91 (-2.15%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.55%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,510,000.00 per CNY/T, +25,000,000.00 (+1.68%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,298.00 per USD/T, +30.00 (+0.92%). The price of ZINC is $3,603.00 per USD/T., -3.00 (-0.08%).   The price of COCOA is $2,571.00 per USD/T, -18.00 (-0.70%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,265.10 USD 1,000 board feet -25.30 (-1.96%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.33 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.29.    In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 115.00 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71 and in Kazakhstani Tenge, one dollar equals 428.08 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.728 per gallon, $3.506 in Florida, $4.503 in Hawaii, and $3.973 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Delaware- $3.573.  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 129th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Uruguay: $6.453 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,136,116,395,744 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Kingdom the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland which holds $318,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine are evacuating civilians- mostly women, children, and seniors- from the region into Russia.  Global observers see this as yet another sign of impending war which Joe Biden said again this afternoon- with a glazed look in his dead eyes- is coming and coming soon.  Stop it, Joe, stop it, stop with banging the war drums.  Everyone knows you are craving a distraction, any distraction with which to save your crumbling illegitimate presidency.  We expect Uncle Joe is telling Volodymyr Zelensky to engineer a false flag operation that will draw the Russians across the border so Uncle Joe can then declare martial law here because of the war and to freeze the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.
  8. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- United States UN Ambassador Linda Greenfield-Thomas says that ‘observations point to a Russian invasion of Ukraine in coming days.   Next, the Biden regime says that ‘Russia hacked into Ukraine’s banking system.’  The head of the regime- senile Joe Biden- says he’s convinced that Vladimir Putin has decided to invade Ukraine.  Again, stop it, Joe, enough already.  IF Putin does invade the Ukraine, it’s because you, him, and Volodymyr Zelensky have all conspired to engineer this ‘wag the dog’ scenario as each one of you believes he can achieve something out of the chaos.  Joe Biden says booting Russia from the SWIFT banking system is unlikely in the opening round of sanctions the Bidenistas want to slap on the Russkies.
  9. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The globally celebrated U.S. ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been on the job for 322 days now.  She is visiting the border, although it’s not ours but that of Eastern Europe.  She has not visited the U.S. border in 236 days.  Here are the stats regarding the illegal alien invasion.  First, here’s the cost of caring for the illegals for the past 49 days: $306,480,300.00.  Shocking.  Next, here’s the cost of caring for the illegals now for the past 414 days: $41,953,776,7619.  Next, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed across the southern border since January 01, 2022: 405,742.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals roaming the land: 42,650,006.  We at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day genuinely believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-100 million illegals which is an incredibly depressing number.  Let’s round them up, force them to work off the costs of Uncle Sam caring for them, and then after 25 years’ hard labor per illegal, deport them back to whence the f**k they came.  Customs and Border Protection is now warning its agents of possible assassination attempts by Mexican drug cartel sicarios.
  10. 2022 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I- In Canada, federal law enforcement is arresting members of the FREEDOM TRUCKERS CONVOY and also is in the process of freezing bank accounts, confiscating private property, grabbing kids, pets, anything of value or of emotional importance to the peaceful protesters so as to crush the brave souls demanding freedom from their totalitarian government.   Speaking of this travesty, U.S. Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large congressional district, says the ‘freezing of donor accounts is deeply disturbing.’  Begin an investigation.
  11. 2022 Friday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $48.50 (2) AstraZeneca: $59.86 (3) Merck & Company: $76.33 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $163.35 (5) Novavax: $81.89 (6) BioNTech: $156.94 (7) Moderna: $145.74.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Pfizer: $50.78 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.04 (3) Merck & Company: $76.64 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $161.71 (5) Novavax: $90.44 (6) BioNTech: $170.95 (7) Moderna: $161.32.
  12. 2022 Friday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $93.36 (2) General Dynamics: $215.70 (3) Boeing: $209.00 (4) Lockheed Martin: $386.53 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $391.27.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Raytheon: $95.27 (2) General Dynamics: $231.76 (3) Boeing: $212.30 (4) Lockheed Martin: $396.19 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $399.32.
  13. 2022 Friday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $18.14 (2) DuPont: $78.75 (3) Honeywell: $182.13 (4) 3M: $147.61 (5) Teijen: $12.20.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.55 (2) DuPont: $79.28 (3) Honeywell: $186.99 (4) 3M: $159.54 (5) Teijen: $1,423.00.
  14. 2022 Friday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $66.07 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $32.31 (3) Beyond Meat: $52.33.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.85 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $32.05 (3) Beyond Meat: $59.87.
  15. 2022 Friday O: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $138.00 (2) Lowe’s: $222.69 (3) Home Depot: $346.60 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $512.67 (5) Amazon: $3,052.03.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Wal-Mart: $135.33 (2) Lowe’s: $225.96 (3) Home Depot: $350.29 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $509.67 (5) Amazon: $3,065.87.
  16. 2022 Friday P: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump blasted lunatic Empire State Attorney General Letitia James’ insane investigation into all-things Donald J. Trump and Trump Family as being a travesty of justice as well as a witch hunt.  Next, the National Archives says that some of the documents it seized at the 45th president’s Mar-a-Lago estate were ‘classified.’  Ooh, the Deep State is ginning up yet another fraudulent investigation into the rightful president.
  17. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I- Approximately 45 GOP senators have sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland demanding he do everything imaginable to protect and to continue funding the probe headed by special counsel, John Durham.  The more information unfriendly to the Bidenistas hits the news, the less likely the Biden regime will allow it to reach the finish line.  Meanwhile, the Biden White House rebukes Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s visit to Moscow as a ‘show of solidarity.’  Wasn’t Mr. Bolsonaro in Donald J. Trump’s camp? 
  18. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II- Next, progressives in the federal government are attempting to push Joe Biden away from considering Judge Michelle Childs as the replacement for retiring U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.   In other news, Joe Biden signed a stopgap measure to keep the federal government up and running into mid-March.  How about a flipping budget already?   Meanwhile, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy says he’s ‘tested positive for the Chi-Vi.’  Get well soon, Mr. Surgeon General.
  19. 2022 Friday S: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- A U.S. judge has ordered the founder of the Oath Keepers imprisoned ahead of his trial for ‘sedition.’  (Note- the regime is copying what President Abraham Lincoln did during the Civil War in his fight to keep the Union together.  Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi aren’t ‘Abraham Lincoln.’  Another judge says that the January 6 political prisoners deserve credit for cooperation.   Next, a judge rejects President Donald J. Trump’s attempt to toss the January 06, 2021, incitement suit lodged against him but excuses Donald J. Trump Jr. and “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani. 
  20. 2022 Friday T: Special Counsel John Durham’s Probe: After Hillary Clinton’s attorney Michael Sussman began crying about the probe targeting him as one of the key go-betweens between Hillary Rodham Clinton and the creators of the phony Trump-Russia collusion scam by calling it, ‘political,’ the special counsel himself said he ‘never sought to politicize the investigation.’
  21. 2022 Friday U: Political News I- Senator Susan Collins, RINO-MN, says the ‘peaceful transfer of power is essential.’  She, of course, blames President Donald J. Trump for January 06, 2021, rather than the true culprits, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser, and various minions working within the Deep State.   Meanwhile, as Joe Biden’s support among Latino voters grows by the day, Republicans are seeking to capitalize on the ‘46th president’s’ self-inflicted loss. 
  22. 2022 Friday V: Political News II- Following the recall of three ultra-leftist goobers on the San Francisco schoolboard, the ousted president labeled it yet another example of- wait for it- get this- WHITE SUPREMACISM.  Wow.  Don’t you just hate that when it happens?  (It’s so much cow crap).    In other news, Maureen Steele told Newsmax that thousands are expected for the growing U.S. TRUCKER FREEDOM CONVOY preparing to set off next week.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is going to host a fund-raising event with Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, who is seeking to win the state’s U.S. Senate seat, the one from which, Senator Richard Shelby, RINO, is retiring.
  23. 2022 Friday W: U.S. Senate News I- The U.S. Senate confirms Christi A. Grimm to become the top watchdog at Health and Human Services, a $1.6 trillion department that oversees fraud, waste, and other chicaneries occurring within or about this very important agency.  It’s interesting to note that President Donald J. Trump at one time assailed Ms. Grimm.
  24. 2022 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News- Former Minnesota Police Officer Kim Potter receives a sentence of two years in prison and a $1,000 fine in the wrongful death of fleeing thug, Daunte Wright.   Next, New York City law enforcement is going to remove the homeless from the city’s subway system.  About flipping time.
  25. 2022 Friday Y: Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates- By unanimous agreement, the first addition to this year’s running for the Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award is Canada’s fledgling dictator, Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau.  This man deserves to win the award this year, the one in which, we laughingly select someone via the votes of the chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM as well as from the votes of our associated family members, friends, neighbors, employees, vendors, and delivery specialists.  The winner hilariously qualifies to be dragged down into the bowels of the infamous KGB prison in Moscow, the Lubyanka, where they get the Lavrentiy Beria ‘treatment,’ i.e., a fictitious bullet in the head as the former KGB chief used to personally dish out.  Of course, we never promote violence of any type, it’s just a humorous award based upon the history of the USSR.  There are three runner-up prizes- the Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award, the Red Banner Idols Award, and the Beijing Bat Bug Award (which is the ‘booby prize’), but we think “Little Xi” is going to be the big winner this year.
  26. 2022 Friday Z: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1739 what with a $64 million jackpot on the line: 06, 11, 50, 63, 68, and Mega 17.   Out of 54,847 winning tickets, the highest winners were 32 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $524 apiece.

32. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022

1968 Thursday: During the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, the photo seen around the world: Saigon police chief Nguyen Ngoc Loan executes a captured Viet Cong officer with a bullet shot to the head. This would cause outrage around the First World with many claiming it to be an atrocity. We, however, have a different view: the guy was a communist terrorist and under the rules of modern warfare had NO rights whatsoever. The military codes in existence around the world recognize that terrorists, spies, guerillas, and others operating out of uniform can be executed in the field.

  82. 2021 Monday:  The Republic of (FREE) China- Taiwan- says that Chi-Com warplanes have violated its airspace with increasing regularity.  We suspect the communists in Beijing are gauging the nation’s air defenses in preparation for an attack.   Next, the Biden administration demands the military junta in Myanmar to stand down NOW which could be the first major foreign policy challenge of the new administration.  Big whoop.  Elsewhere, a major storm is hammering the northeastern part of the United States which is permitting left-wing governors to call off vaccinating their citizens against the Chinese Virus.  Speaking of the Chi-Com influenza, a researcher who developed the saliva test to detect the virus has just died.  Finally, the WHO team in Wuhan, China, is going to meet with the provincial CDC who will tell them, “NOTHING TO SEE HERE.”  Speaking of the Kung Flu, the Chinese have a new method of testing for their lab-engineered pandemic, first reported by Rush Limbaugh on his radio program LAST week- an anal swab.  Images of Chinese citizens walking like penguins following this horribly invasive test is all over the place.  What a bunch of sick f**ks.

  84. 2021 Monday B: GOP lawmakers are asking the Federal Elections Commission if it’s permissible to use campaign donations to fund bodyguards.  Meanwhile, House Dems are trying to bully House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, into stripping Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA, of her committee assignments.  In other disturbing news, it now appears that Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Republican, has drunk from the well of Kool-Aid and last week threw President Donald J. Trump under the bus blaming the 45th president’s ‘speech’ for what happened on January 6, 2021.  NOT an effective way to seek to remain a stalwart in the GOP there, senator, especially when evidence continues mounting showing that the riot was planned weeks ahead of the day of the mob riots.  We know the pipe bombs were planted the previous day.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s next album, “Festival Bell,” came out on January 18, 2011, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 14 glorious tracks, 10 of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

Monday, February 01, 2021, Today in History:  

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…


Tuesday, February 01, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iv] Something else of importance to note is that the U.S. was a guest of the South Vietnamese, helping them fight off the communist threat from North Vietnam and from communist thugs- the Viet Cong- in the South.  Thus, they had the right to do whatever they deemed necessary to do.  At the time of the execution, the battle was in full swing with the outcome possibly in doubt, so the SV police official did what he felt he had to do.  It is what it is and one other thing everyone should remember: IF you are going to fight a war against guerillas, do not allow the press free access to combat operations.  We believe we lost the war in South Vietnam because of two important issues: (1) the military did not capture territory and then hold it as it did in every previous war but beat the enemy and then allowed them to return the moment we left.  (2) The press cost us the war because it portrayed nothing but negative images to the home front, thus sapping the American people’s will to fight and helping sow the seeds of division by creating dissension among the American public.  Virtually every older scumbag in left-wing news today got their start shaping the antiwar movement in the 1960s and especially after 1968.  

[v] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

20. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 2022, UPDATE A

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

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

  6. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.648 per gallon, $3.215 in Florida, $4.343 in Hawaii, and $3.959 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Nevada- $3.808.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 102nd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- South Africa: $4.905 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,819,568,835,032 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Brazil the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland with $256,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border crisis now for 296 days and worse, she has not shown up anywhere along the border to do the especially important job appointed to her by President Biden in 209 days.  Since One America News has fallen by the wayside with its reporting on the illegal alien crisis, the AICPENDBLOG.COM have taken it upon ourselves to compile statistics.  Here is the cost of caring for the undocumented migrants in the United States as we speak for this day alone: $1,918,108,020.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the undocumented in the country combined with the previous year’s tally: $405,980,981,403.  Next, here is the suspected number of undocumented aliens who have crossed the border for the first 20 days of the year: 197,253.  Finally, here is the low estimate for the number of noncitizens currently residing in the country: 42,354,641.
  8. 2022 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Trilateral naval drills between the People’s Republic of China, Russia, and Iran begin tomorrow.   Next, the Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó says that the talks between U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, on Ukraine must succeed.  Next, the United Nations defines Holocaust deniers and urges all social media providers to get on board and combat the vile rhetoric being pushed by leftists.   Countries like Iran should be banned from ALL social media worldwide because they are little more than terrorists.  Finally, Afghanistan now tops North Korea in religious persecutions.  (Interesting note regarding the Holocaust: a new poll says that 93-percent of America’s Jews are concerned about the United States slide into Antisemitism).
  9. 2022 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- “America’s Doctor” Tony Fauci says that unvaccinated Americans threaten the end of the pandemic in 2022.  In other COVID-19-related news, hospitals that were overwhelmed by vast numbers of the Omicron variant are now reporting steep declines in the numbers of COVID-19 cases.  Most educated people believe the pandemic is on the wane and that what we continue seeing in the United States is little more than politics.

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

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

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