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

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

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

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

  86. 2021 Friday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.875 per gallon, $3.586 in Hawaii, and $3.310 in Washington state.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,077,515,205,309 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  More spending yet to come.  Question: are the Democrats putting our country into debt servitude?  It is beginning to look that way.
  87. 2021 Friday N: EVENING UPDATES- Foreign News- Houthi rebel drone strikes once again have caused problems for the Saudis as six drones flew in and hit the Aramco facility in Riyadh.  Although they didn’t cause much damage, they still caused enough by causing some fires.  However, oil production was not interrupted.   Next, after the European Medicines Agency evaluated the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, they decided that the benefits far outweigh the risks and thus countries across Europe are back to using it to protect their citizens. 
  88. 2021 Friday O: Ex-con Michael Cohen, former personal attorney for President Donald J. Trump met with New York City D.A. Cyrus Vance, Jr., for the eighth time today.  Vance is trying to engineer a charge with which, he can ‘get’ Donald Trump.  He wants to know if the 45th president exaggerated the value of his real estate investments so he could get much more favorable loans from his bankers.  Stay tuned for further details (although we think Vance is tapping a dry hole).  We shall see.  In other news, apparently the quarterback of the Houston Texans, Deshaun Watson, is being accused by numerous spa employees for behaving in a sexually lewd and aggressive manner, something he wholeheartedly denies.  Poor guy must be a Republican because seldom does anyone go after a Democrat for such matters unless, of course, they are unlikable scumbags such as Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, former Senator Al Sharpton, and former Congressman John Conyers.  Then, one is fair game.  Finally, the feds are charging some Proud Boys leaders for their roles in the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.
  89. 2021 Friday P: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1643 with a $105 million jackpot on the line tonight.  Here we go: 09, 14, 40, 59, 68, and Mega 08. In a very strange event, there were NO winners in California although across the country, there were 08. In a very strange event, there were NO winners in California although across the country, there were 549,204 winning tickets.  We will check back tomorrow to see if this holds true.   UPDATE on the Mega Millions- out of 75,180 winning tickets, there was but ONE winner- FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $48,322.
  90. 2022 Saturday:  Thank God, it’s the weekend…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  70. 2019 Friday: Following heavy snowfall in Washington state, Gov. Jay Inslee, Democrat, declared a public emergency.  Not sure if he blamed the snow on global warming, his favorite topic.  Meanwhile, Amazon.com bigwig and founder, Jeff Bezos, attacks The National Enquirer and its owner, American Media Inc. of trying to blackmail him over private messages discovered and published by the celebrated publication that shown that Bezos was schlepping someone other than his wife.  This would lead to the costliest divorce in the history of the planet.  Elsewhere, an unnamed senior White House official reveals to Reuters that the administration is in private talks with the Venezuelan military encouraging them to turn on POS murderous thug dictator Nicolas Maduro.
  71. 2020 Saturday: NBC reports today that as the Chinese Virus continues enveloping parts of the world, the first two foreigners to die of lab-engineered virus in Wuhan- one Japanese and one American- did so today.  This does not count the numbers of communist Chinese or Hong Kong citizens who have died from this evil crap.  Elsewhere, U.S. and Afghan security forces holding joint exercises end up fighting with one another leaving between 4-6 Americans and at least 6 Afghans dead.  Investigators are trying to find out if the Taliban, al-Qaida, or ISIS infiltrated human trash into the ranks of the Afghan troops.
  72. 2021 Monday: As Joe Biden continues eliminating his predecessor’s legacy, he announces today that he is going to do something truly stupid and that is to remove the “anarchist jurisdiction’ label from crap-hole cities such as New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle that limit federal funds to these cities overrun with Antifa and BLM human fecal matter and which do nothing about it.  Bet you feel really good, don’t you, Joe?  Next, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers considers legislation that will legalize pot.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s approval ratings and popularity numbers are approaching single digits as Californians of all parties seek to oust this POS loser from office via recall.  Two new challengers are entering the race to replace him in the recall election- entrepreneur Major Williams and businessman John Cox. 
  73. 2021 Monday A: With re-impeachment looming tomorrow, Republicans plan on showing how it is ‘unconstitutional.’  Folks, impeaching someone is NOT a president and without the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court calling balls and strikes, it is little more than politics, a circus, a load of steaming hog hooey.  Everyone participating in this charade must be removed from office in upcoming elections.   Elsewhere, Missouri freshman Congresswoman Cori Bush sides with rioting inmates over law enforcement and the rule of law.  Recall this dimwit.   Speaking of the Democrat losers, folks- there are photos of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi walking around metal detectors in the halls of Congress.  Someone hit her with the $5,000 fine she imposed on her members for committing such an egregious act.   Moreover, speaking of Democrat losers, the little dimwit Senator Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, says, “There is NO comparison between the words of lunatic Congresswoman “Gasoline Maxine” Waters of California and those of Donald J. Trump.  Hence why you are rated among the stupider members of the U.S. Senate, Mr. Murphy.
  74. 2021 Monday B: Biden press secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki dismisses questions about impending job losses over the coming raising of the federal minimum wage of $15 per hour.  She laughed it off.  Speaking of such idiocy, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen blows off fears of coming double-digit inflation due to the oncoming $1.9 trillion Biden stimulus plan as well as near-zero interest rates.  Folks, we point it out every day- expect the country to be in the tank by mid-summer thanks to (1) a jacked up minimum wage; (2) pandemic politics; and (3) massive numbers of illegal aliens who are low-to-no-skilled taking American jobs and receiving wages under the table.  Someone else who is unhappy with the Biden administration is AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, someone whom we thought was going to endorse Donald J. Trump.  He is unhappy about the all the job losses that have already occurred under the 46th president as well as the millions to come.  We told you so, Mr. Trumka.  You could have supported President Trump and continued seeing your members enjoy rising wages, better benefits, and increased prosperity.  
  75. 2021 Monday C: In foreign news and issues, Joe Biden’s claims of being ‘tough on communist China are met with skepticism, if not outright laughter.  He will do nothing.  Next, Joe Biden’s stupid border policies are causing massive caravans heading to the U.S. borders and thousands of illegal aliens flooding into the U.S.  Time to start laying minefields along that border, folks.  Meanwhile, following the arrest of one of its press corps in communist China, Australia calls other reporters home.  NOW.   Elsewhere, after receiving the Sputnik V Chi-Vi vaccine from Russia, the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warns Iranians citizens to ‘avoid those who have gotten the vaccines because they’ve become homosexuals.’  Say what?  Vladimir Putin, what the hell are YOU doing to Iran?   Finally, Saudi Arabia has shot down four recent weaponized drones crossing into its airspace from Yemen where the Houthi rebels are running amok.  Neutron bombs, folks, that’s the answer for the Houthis.
  76. 2021 Monday D: Senator Lindsey Graham, labeled “Lady G” by press secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- a homosexual slur- urges the Biden administration NOT to abandon all of his predecessor’s foreign policies just because you don’t like their creator.  Lindsey, Biden is getting rid of EVERYTHING.  You know it, we know it, hell, everyone knows it.  Speaking of RINO senators, Alabama Senator Richard Shelby says he ‘won’t seek another term’ which leaves it open for Jeff Sessions to come back- again.  Elsewhere, following a weekend in which two were killed and 20 shot in Chicago, Windy City Mayor Lori Lightfoot announces that Chi-Town and the teachers’ union have reached an agreement with which to reopen the schools and to get the little tykes back into class.    Finally, Texas Republican Congressman Ron Wright, died from a combination of cancer and the ‘VID;’ we know the COVID-19 will be the cause of death.
  77. 2021 Monday E: Two GOP congressmen have offered up the Oversight Members and Relatives Act- the OMAR Act- because members of congress such as Ilhan Omar, D-MN, and ‘Gasoline Maxine’ Waters have poured millions of dollars from their campaign coffers into the pockets of their family members.  Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-WI, and Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-WI, said it was time for an act such as this.  We agree.  Enough with all these scoundrels enriching themselves and their families at the taxpayers’ expense.  Speaking of self-enrichment, Dr. Vivek Murthy, Joe Biden’s pick for surgeon-general has made hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees from- wait, you guessed it- BIG HEALTHCARE.  Wow.  Does it ever end?   Meanwhile, Tampa Bay’s Democrat Mayor Jane Castor says she is ‘appalled that citizens of her community were without masks during the Super Bowl and that law enforcement will identify the offenders and will do something about it once the scumbags are identified.’  Wow.  Another wannabe Gretchen Whitmer on the loose…
  78. 2021 Monday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 106,314,695 confirmed cases, +300,0472 2,320,720, confirmed deaths, +6,928, and 59,303,299 confirmed recoveries, +231,945.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,319,269 confirmed cases, up 67,092 from yesterday’s reporting, 468,379 confirmed deaths, UP 1,040, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than two weeks- what’s up with that? NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 138,473 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  79. 2021 Monday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,417,099 confirmed cases, 44,159 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,468 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,947 confirmed cases, 4,531 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Pennsylvania: currently, they have 875,557 confirmed cases, 22,493 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 696,528 confirmed cases, 5,171 confirmed deaths, and 619,100 confirmed recoveries.   
  80. 2021 Monday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,385.76, UP 237.52 points (+0.76%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,987.64, UP 131.35 points (+0.95%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,915.59, UP 28.76 points (+0.74%).  The reason for the UP markets is because these morons are anticipating the passage of Biden’s ‘COVID-19 relief/stimulus package which is going to put the country into still deeper debt.  Go figure.  The price of GOLD is $1,832.40 per troy oz., -1.90 (-0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $27.38 per troy ounce, -0.20 (-0.73%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,172.50 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.23%) while the price of COPPER is $3.68 per pound, +0.01 (+0.29%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,342.50 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $58.05 per barrel, +0.08 (+0.14%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000022.
  81. 2021 Monday I: We said it earlier today, but the Congressional Budget Office announced today that Joe Biden’s $15-hour minimum wage is going to cost the country another 1.4 million jobs- on the low end- once it goes into effect.  An AP Poll says that just 16-percent of Americans think U.S. democracy is in decent shape.  Another 45-percent said the country is not functioning as it should be while 80-percent said the rule of law, functioning judicial system, free and fair elections,
  82. 2021 Monday J: Meanwhile, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says, ‘Joe Biden’s transgender rules is a war on women.’  Amen.   Next, POS Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is launching an investigation into that EVIL-EVIL-EVIL Trump for him trying to get this wonderful public servant to throw the election in his favor.  Whoa.  Friends, after listening to hours of people testifying before the Georgia Senate, the secretary of state should be doing time in the hoosegow.   Finally, New York prosecutors have dropped all charges against pardoned Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort- and they kept this poor man in solitary confinement.  EVIL.
  83. 2021 Monday K: There is talk that communist China and its thug leader Xi Jinping could face charges before the International Court for committing genocide against its Uighur minority, people who are imprisoned in concentration camps being made into ‘worthy citizens’ of Mao Zedong’s horrible hellhole.  A British legal firm working on behalf of human rights releases reams of evidence showing that what the Chi-Coms are doing in Xinjiang Province to their Muslim minorities is a disguised genocide of a thriving people.  Elsewhere, reports suggest that Kim Jong Un built up his nuclear weapons arsenal and missile systems with which to deliver said atomic weapons during the course of last year.  Uncle Joe Biden, what are YOU going to do about this threat?   Meanwhile, Fox News host Tucker Carlson reports that the Biden administration is not going to deport illegal aliens convicted of violent crimes including sex crimes.  And this senile old POS wants to be president of ALL the American people or so he promised.   Moreover, Tucker Carlson reports that illegal aliens are being dumped into U.S. neighborhoods without even being tested for COVID-19.  We have said this before, when the bodies start dropping, don’t be shocked.   Finally, whereas the U.S. was apprehending 1,200 illegal aliens at the border each day last year, we are now seeing more than 3,000 illegals trying to enter the country daily.  We say minefields, 50-caliber MG emplacements, and miles and miles and miles of concertina razor wire to augment the existing fence.  (Note- some of us support seeding the Rio Grande with baby alligators…)
  84. 2021 Monday L: Niccole Wallace at MSNBC believes that targeted drone strikes should be used against conservative Republicans in the United States who may not believe the 2020 Presidential Election was remotely fair.  I guess since most of us believe it was a load of festering crap, we had better start watching the skies overhead.  We already have more chem trails above our neighborhoods than ever before and NO one ever explains their purpose.  WTF is up?
  85. 2021 Monday M: In Henderson, Nevada, original Supreme (1959-2021)- Mary Wilson- from cardiovascular disease on this date; she was 76.
  86. 2022 Tuesday:  Mis amigos, stick around for the latest events…

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

Monday, February 08, 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…


Tuesday, February 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

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

[iv] In an interesting note, many believe the coup in Turkey was engineered by Erdogan to get rid of his political enemies by engineering a coup d’ gras against him.  In 2021 in the United States, following a False Flag operation in which, Antifa-led mobs stormed Capitol Hill and ‘terrified’ lawmakers, the Democrats are doing the same going after every Trump supporter.  The only people in attendance at ‘Joe Biden’s inauguration’ were 27,000 National Guard members.  The Democrats who always say, “WALLS DON’T WORK,” put up walls all over Washington, D.C. and as of today, there are still 7,000 Guardsmen on scene protecting “Usurper Joe.”

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

244. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 01, 2021

III. 2018 Saturday: At a nearly three-hour memorial service for U.S. Sen. John McCain, RINO-AZ, in Washington (way too long), McCain’s daughter and two former presidents led a public rebuke of President Donald Trump’s ‘divisive politics’ and called for a return to civility among the nation’s leaders. How classy, one must admit that the ‘mourners’ attacking President Trump were extremely classy. What a load of SOBS!

  58. 2015 Tuesday: During the overwhelming Muslim migrant/refugee crisis overrunning the European Union, Hungary says, “ENOUGH!” as it closes down its Keleti Railway Station in Budapest in an effort to stem the flow of outsiders who will never become good citizens.
  59. 2016 Thursday: Following his visit with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump spells out his immigration plan: millions would be rounded up within the United States and deported as swiftly as possible- but not all 11 million estimated to be living in the shadows (we say 30-40 million)- and that the United States would begin constructing the wall upon his election (although Pena Nieto said, “Mexico will not be paying for it.”).
  60. 2017 Friday: A line of cars stretched more than a mile at a water distribution center set up on a high school football field in Beaumont, Texas, which had been left without drinking water by flooding from Hurricane Harvey.
  61. 2018 Saturday: At a nearly three-hour memorial service for U.S. Sen. John McCain, RINO-AZ, in Washington (way too long), McCain’s daughter and two former presidents led a public rebuke of President Donald Trump’s ‘divisive politics’ and called for a return to civility among the nation’s leaders. How classy, one must admit that the ‘mourners’ attacking President Trump were extremely classy.  What a load of SOBS!
  62. 2019 Sunday: According to the International Red Cross, Saudi-led Coalition airstrikes over the Yemeni city of Dhamar kill at least 100 people on the ground and wound numerous others. Meanwhile, Hurricane Dorian becomes a Cat 5 storm as it roars into the northern Bahamas with winds in excess of 180 mph.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: As of today, Real Clear Politics average polling shows “Gropin’ Joe” Biden with a lead of 49.6-43.4-percent over President Donald J. Trump. Left-wing online media reports that President Trump will win in a massive landslide victory on Election Day but by Sunday as all the extra leftist mail-in ballots roll in, he will lose in a massive landslide.  Hence why conservatives are now registering illegal aliens around the country so they can vote, too.  If the Dems want to play this game, so can we.  Next, ICE reports the arrests of more than 2,000 illegal aliens around the country, 86-percent of whom had criminal records and were sheltered by sanctuary cities and states,  The arrestees and soon to be deportees came from a whopping 80 different countries.  Bon voyage, illegal aliens, bon voyage.  Meanwhile, shortly after midnight today, peaceful protesters showed up outside the home of Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler’s[vi] home and attempted to set it ablaze with him aside.  Thank God they were peaceful!  Elsewhere, Massachusetts Congressman Joseph Kennedy III (another flipping Kennedy) is primarying Senator Ed Markey, a fellow Democrat, as the ‘Curse of AOC’ continues setting up old-timer Democrats for tragic downfalls.  However, in this case, the Baby Evita is backing Markey because he leapt atop the Green New Deal sparing his political life.  Hey: why won’t House Speaker “Mumbles” Nancy Pelosi debate her Democratic challenger, Shahid Buttar, a Muslim attorney, prior to the November elections?  Madam Pelosi, double up on the Prevagen and get your wrinkly old butt out there and debate this man!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump flies to Kenosha, Wisconsin, to meet with local, state, and federal law enforcement officers and officials and to tour the damage that befell the once-prosperous community prior to the cops shooting thug George Blake seven times in the back as he reached for a weapon in his car and then when Antifa and Black Lives Matter arrived on scene and destroyed much of the municipality.   
  64. 2020 Tuesday A: New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio, a drooling moron if ever one existed, says taxes are going to go UP because the wealthy are fleeing the city as it collapses all around him. He promises to build affordable housing in WHITE areas so he can end segregation and that he will continue defunding the cops.  Before this lunatic raises taxes, how about him writing a BIG CHECK to fill the city’s coffers and how about his wife repaying- with interest- all the money she allegedly siphoned off the city government in her bogus, left-wing commie plans.  The city collects $11 billion in income taxes every year, 80-percent of which goes to cover pension and retirement plans for city workers.  Hmmm, sounds familiar…like the state of California?   
  65. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 25,334,339 confirmed cases, UP by 283,161 cases, 848,084 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,498 deaths, and 16,669,974 confirmed recoveries, UP by 218,956 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,118,204 confirmed cases, UP by 36,832 new cases, 186,348 confirmed deaths, UP by 478 new deaths, and 3,218,565 confirmed recoveries, UP by 16,108 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  66. 2020 Tuesday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 707,797 confirmed cases, 13,018 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,472 confirmed cases, 70 confirmed deaths, and 2,578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 74,635 confirmed cases, 1,915 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 435,510 confirmed number of cases, and this week, a scaling DOWN in the number of reported deaths from 32,864 August 25, 2020, to 25,331  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  This tells us that the worst governor in the country, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, is feeling the heat for the massive number of seniors he murdered by sending COVID-19-infected patients into the state’s nursing homes.   We hope to see this POS forced to resign as President Richard M. Nixon did and move into obscurity, the end of the ‘Cuomo Dynasty.’  Go get ‘em, U.S. Department of Justice, go get ‘em!
  67. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,645.66, UP 215.61 points (+0.76%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,939.67, UP 164.21 points (+1.39%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,526.65, UP 26.34 points (+0.75%).  The price of GOLD is $1,975.20 per troy oz., -3.7 (-0.187%) while the price of SILVER is $28.30 per troy ounce, -0.345 (-1.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.80 per troy oz, -3.03 (-0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $3.21 per pound, -0.007 (-0.23%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,298.00 per troy oz., -11.8 (-0.51).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.98 per barrel, +0.22 (+0.51%).  Today, COFFEE is $129.80 per metric ton, -1.95 (-1.48).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.83 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  68. 2020 Tuesday E: Bret Baier of Fox News Channel’s Special Report reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was captured on videotape getting her hair done at a San Francisco hairdresser’s shop sans any mask or any protective gear. When caught by reporters, she claims to ‘always follow the science’ which is great- why don’t you and the rest of your fellow Democrats follow the science on the amount of pain fetuses feel as they are undergoing an abortion procedure?   Meanwhile, tonight will be the 97th straight day of violent mob actions in the city of Portland, Oregon.  The governor is requesting help from around Oregon state but several sheriffs’ departments in the state as well as a police fraternal organization say “NO” because nothing is happening to the scum law enforcement arrests.  In Los Angeles, protests continue outside a Sheriff’s substation following the police shooting of a black man there the previous night.   Finally, Vice President Mike Pence was touring and speaking in “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, with BIG CROWDS in attendance.  No one knows where either Joe Biden or his running mate, uh, what’s her name- Kamala Harris- Willie Brown’s alleged bed buddy is.  They must ‘have it in the bag.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday: Stick around to find out what the hell the Biden regime is doing to the country today…

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

Wednesday, September 01, 2021:

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

ENDNOTES:


[i] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[ii] We hope to present the music of Sly & the Family Stone within the next decade or so.  Please stay tuned for further information.

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

[iv] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[v] We look forward to doing the music of Jerry Reed at some point in the future when we do the music of Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, the Outlaws, and other country rockers.

[vi] Today is Ted Wheeler’s birthday so the mobs showed him some disrespect calling for him to step down.  

Three years ago, I became an object of immediate derision when I prophesied we’d soon be seeing Antifa beheading captives; now, we’re not that far away

78. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 19, 2021

FF. 1954 Friday: The People’s Army continues ringing the French base of Dien Bien Phu. On the eastern side, the sappers are digging trenches at night drawing closer to the Elianes and Dominiques. The French are determined to hold these eastern outposts, especially now that Béatrices have been overrun. The French defenders see the sappers drawing closer but there is not much they can do to stop them as to go out and engage the Viet Minh is to put themselves at great risk.

  52. 2003 Wednesday: President George W. Bush ordered the start of the war against Iraq.  However, because of the time difference, it was early March 20 in Iraq.   Ah, well, U.S. and British warplanes begin conducting sorties across the country, blowing up various military installations, infrastructure, and whatever else they can get in their sights.  The American people did not want to do, this especially under false pretenses- ‘weapons of mass destruction.’  The had neither the support of the United Nations nor a majority of world public opinion; no, the only support they had was the Military-Industrial-Political Complex of the United States and their British allies (although MUCH LESS in the UK).  Thank you, Dick Cheney, thank you.
  53. 2004 Friday: Prior to tomorrow’s elections in Taiwan, an unknown thug (probably Chi-Com) shoots President Chen Shui-bian.  He was shot in the stomach while campaigning just as his Vice President Annette Lu was shot in the leg.  Not much information is available about the shooter.  Elsewhere, the Pakistani military clamps down on South Waziristan where they believe they have cornered acting head of al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahiri.  This guy is as elusive as hell and they are losing loads of troops trying to uncover his rathole.  
  54. 2005 Saturday: In Doha, Qatar, a car bomb parked along the street erupts, killing one British visitor and wounds another dozen people.  Elsewhere, G20, the group of developing nations, calls on the industrialized countries to end their farm subsidies. 
  55. 2006 Sunday: Fine workmanship is on display in Moscow, Russia.  A passenger train navigating the Moscow Metro Tunnel has the roof crash down upon the train, setting it ablaze.  Rescue workers are able to reach the passengers and evacuate them quickly.  Good work on that account.
  56. 2007 Monday: Talks between the United States and North Korea- the six-party talks- are slated to begin after the U.S. agrees to unlock North Korean funds held in a bank in Macao. 
  57. 2008 Wednesday: Various European countries like Monaco, Bulgaria, Hungary, and Croatia recognize the independence of Kosovo.  In the United States, on the five-year-anniversary of the Iraq War, people are running amok in the streets which leads to the arrests of at least 200 people.  Meanwhile, President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney dismiss the unrest as miniscule. 
  58. 2009 Thursday: North Korea is up to its old tricks once again- they arrest two American journalists with Current TV- near the border with communist China.  Many believe the North Koreans went across the Yalu River and grabbed them up.  The North Koreans like kidnapping foreigners and holding them for ransom.  Ask the Japanese.
  59. 2010 Friday: Palestinians in Hebron, Israel, are running amok throwing rocks at Israeli security forces.  Light ‘em up.  In Sudan, Muslims are running amok there, too, killing at least 13 people in street riots.  Elsewhere, in the incredibly tolerant Islamic Republic of Iran, former Vice President Hossein Marashi finds himself in trouble with the law, accused of spreading propaganda.    
  60. 2011 Saturday: The Arab Spring is underway:  in Syria, government forces have to fire tear gas at a crowd of funeral attendees who are angry that government forces killed some of their family members.  In Yemen, as the people continue growing angrier by the minute, government officials finally begin to step down and flee.  In Algeria, protests are growing more violent leading to concessions from the government.  None of it is going to matter.
  61. 2012 Monday: Wendy’s overtakes Burger King as the second most popular hamburger chain in the world.  Next, North Korea sends an invitation to the International Atomic Energy Agency- the IAEA- to come for a visit.  They would like them to come for some tea and perhaps check their nuclear facilities.   
  62. 2013 Tuesday: In Rome, Italy, the papal inauguration ceremony for Pope Francis takes place in St. Peter’s Square; hundreds of thousands attend.  Next, on the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq,  a string of suicide bombings, shootings, and other homicidal activities lead to the deaths of 98 people and another 240 injured in varying degrees.  Meanwhile, on the planet Mars, NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity discovers further evidence of water-bearing minerals.  Finally, famed porn actor Harry Reems dies of pancreatic carcinoma at age 65.
  63. 2014 Wednesday:  President Obama promises that the U.S. will not take military action in Ukraine in response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea.  However, the Ukrainians are withdrawing as Putin’s occupation troops swarm into the area.   Elsewhere, as the Syrian civil war continues to rage, Israel bombs a Syrian military outpost in the Golan Heights. 
  64. 2015 Thursday: According to Brainy History, the U.S. Federal Reserve has cut its 2015 inflation and economic growth predictions for the U.S. and will likely wait until at least June of this year to raise interest rates.  Elsewhere, the Euro zone tells the Greek government that it ‘must remain within the parameters set by them so it can recover from its debt crisis or risk being expelled from the organization.’
  65. 2016 Saturday: In Mexico City, the movie “Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice” starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot has its premiere.   Elsewhere, outside the Phoenix, Arizona, suburb of Fountain Hills, at least 2 dozen protesters block the road leading in to stop people from attending a rally headlined by Donald J. Trump, former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  The losers block traffic for hours.  Most likely illegal aliens.

  67. 2018 Monday: Much to howls of horror from the Pro-Death (what the Democrats call ‘Pro-Choice’), Mississippi signs into law the toughest abortion law in the United States: NO abortion after 15 weeks.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump releases his plan with which to stem the tide against the opioid epidemic which includes harsher penalties for traffickers along with the possibility of the death penalty.   Elsewhere, Facebook’s chief information security officer Alex Stamos is leaving the social media giant over Cambridge Analytica and Russian interference in the 2016 Election.
  68. 2019 Tuesday: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that the federal government can detain illegal aliens with criminal records indefinitely.  The liberal illegal-loving Democrats go berserk.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump hosts conservative Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro at the White House. Leftists don’t like this guy either.

GG. 1942 Sunday A: Meanwhile, the U.S. Congress advises President Franklin Delano Roosevelt that Americans of Japanese descent on the West Coast and in Hawaii should undergo incarceration en masse until the end of hostilities so they do not oppose the U.S. war effort.

  68. 2019 Friday: Following heavy snowfall in Washington state, Gov.

  69. 2020 Saturday: NBC reports today that as the Chinese Virus continues enveloping parts of the world, the first two foreigners to die of lab-engineered virus in Wuhan- one Japanese and one American- did so today.  This does not count the numbers of communist Chinese or Hong Kong citizens who have died from this evil crap.  Elsewhere, U.S. and Afghan security forces holding joint exercises end up fighting with one another leaving between 4-6 Americans and at least 6 Afghans dead.  Investigators are trying to find out if the Taliban, al-Qaida, or ISIS infiltrated human trash into the ranks of the Afghan troops.
  70. 2021 Monday: As Joe Biden continues eliminating his predecessor’s legacy, he announces today that he is going to do something truly stupid and that is to remove the “anarchist jurisdiction’ label from crap-hole cities such as New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle that limit federal funds to these cities overrun with Antifa and BLM human fecal matter and which do nothing about it.  Bet you feel really good, don’t you, Joe?  Next, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers considers legislation that will legalize pot.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s approval ratings and popularity numbers are approaching single digits as Californians of all parties seek to oust this POS loser from office via recall.  Two new challengers are entering the race to replace him in the recall election- entrepreneur Major Williams and businessman John Cox. 
  71. 2021 Monday A: With re-impeachment looming tomorrow, Republicans plan on showing how it is ‘unconstitutional.’  Folks, impeaching someone is NOT a president and without the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court calling balls and strikes, it is little more than politics, a circus, a load of steaming hog hooey.  Everyone participating in this charade must be removed from office in upcoming elections.   Elsewhere, Missouri freshman Congresswoman Cori Bush sides with rioting inmates over law enforcement and the rule of law.  Recall this dimwit.   Speaking of Democrat losers, there are photos of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi walking around metal detectors in the halls of Congress.  Someone hit her with the $5,000 fine she imposed on her members for committing such an egregious act.   Moreover, speaking of Democrat losers, the little dimwit Senator Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, says, “There is NO comparison between the words of lunatic Congresswoman “Gasoline Maxine” Waters of California and those of Donald J. Trump.  Hence why you are rated among the stupider members of the U.S. Senate, Mr. Murphy.
  72. 2021 Monday B: Biden press secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki dismisses questions about impending job losses over the coming raising of the federal minimum wage of $15 per hour.  She laughed it off.  Speaking of such idiocy, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen blows off fears of coming double-digit inflation due to the oncoming $1.9 trillion Biden stimulus plan as well as near-zero interest rates.  Folks, we point it out every day- expect the country to be in the tank by mid-summer thanks to (1) a jacked up minimum wage; (2) pandemic politics; and (3) massive numbers of illegal aliens who are low-to-no-skilled taking American jobs and receiving wages under the table.  Someone else who is unhappy with the Biden administration is AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, someone whom we thought was going to endorse Donald J. Trump.  He is unhappy about the all the job losses that have already occurred under the 46th president as well as the millions to come.  We told you so, Mr. Trumka.  You could have supported President Trump and continued seeing your members enjoy rising wages, better benefits, and increased prosperity.  
  73. 2021 Monday C: In foreign news and issues, Joe Biden’s claims of being ‘tough on communist China are met with skepticism, if not outright laughter.  He will do nothing.  Next, Joe Biden’s stupid border policies are causing massive caravans heading to the U.S. borders and thousands of illegal aliens flooding into the U.S.  Time to start laying minefields along that border, folks.  Meanwhile, following the arrest of one of its press corps in communist China, Australia calls other reporters home.  NOW.   Elsewhere, after receiving the Sputnik V Chi-Vi vaccine from Russia, the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warns Iranians citizens to ‘avoid those who have gotten the vaccines because they’ve become homosexuals.’  Say what?  Vladimir Putin, what the hell are YOU doing to Iran?   Finally, Saudi Arabia has shot down four recent weaponized drones crossing into its airspace from Yemen where the Houthi rebels are running amok.  Neutron bombs, folks, that’s the answer for the Houthis.
  74. 2021 Monday D: Senator Lindsey Graham, labeled “Lady G” by press secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- a homosexual slur- urges the Biden administration NOT to abandon all of his predecessor’s foreign policies just because you don’t like their creator.  Lindsey, Biden is getting rid of EVERYTHING.  You know it, we know it, hell, everyone knows it.  Speaking of RINO senators, Alabama Senator Richard Shelby says he ‘won’t seek another term’ which leaves it open for Jeff Sessions to come back- again.  Elsewhere, following a weekend in which two were killed and 20 shot in Chicago, Windy City Mayor Lori Lightfoot announces that Chi-Town and the teachers’ union have reached an agreement with which to reopen the schools and to get the little tykes back into class.    Finally, Texas Republican Congressman Ron Wright, died from a combination of cancer and the ‘VID;’ we know the COVID-19 will be the cause of death.
  75. 2021 Monday E: Two GOP congressmen have offered up the Oversight Members and Relatives Act- the OMAR Act- because members of congress such as Ilhan Omar, D-MN, and ‘Gasoline Maxine’ Waters have poured millions of dollars from their campaign coffers into the pockets of their family members.  Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-WI, and Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-WI, said it was time for an act such as this.  We agree.  Enough with all these scoundrels enriching themselves and their families at the taxpayers’ expense.  Speaking of self-enrichment, Dr. Vivek Murthy, Joe Biden’s pick for surgeon-general has made hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees from- wait, you guessed it- BIG HEALTHCARE.  Wow.  Does it ever end?   Meanwhile, Tampa Bay’s Democrat Mayor Jane Castor says she is ‘appalled that citizens of her community were without masks during the Super Bowl and that law enforcement will identify the offenders and will do something about it once the scumbags are identified.’  Wow.  Another wannabe Gretchen Whitmer on the loose…
  76. 2021 Monday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 106,314,695 confirmed cases, +300,0472 2,320,720, confirmed deaths, +6,928, and 59,303,299 confirmed recoveries, +231,945.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,319,269 confirmed cases, up 67,092 from yesterday’s reporting, 468,379 confirmed deaths, UP 1,040, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than two weeks- what’s up with that? NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 138,473 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  77. 2021 Monday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,417,099 confirmed cases, 44,159 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,468 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,947 confirmed cases, 4,531 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Pennsylvania: currently, they have 875,557 confirmed cases, 22,493 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 696,528 confirmed cases, 5,171 confirmed deaths, and 619,100 confirmed recoveries.   
  78. 2021 Monday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,385.76, UP 237.52 points (+0.76%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,987.64, UP 131.35 points (+0.95%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,915.59, UP 28.76 points (+0.74%).  The reason for the UP markets is because these morons are anticipating the passage of Biden’s ‘COVID-19 relief/stimulus package which is going to put the country into still deeper debt.  Go figure.  The price of GOLD is $1,832.40 per troy oz., -1.90 (-0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $27.38 per troy ounce, -0.20 (-0.73%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,172.50 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.23%) while the price of COPPER is $3.68 per pound, +0.01 (+0.29%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,342.50 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $58.05 per barrel, +0.08 (+0.14%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000022.
  79. 2021 Monday I: We said it earlier today but the Congressional Budget Office announced today that Joe Biden’s $15 hour minimum wage is going to cost the country another 1.4 million jobs- on the low end- once it goes into effect.  An AP Poll says that just 16-percent of Americans think U.S. democracy is in good shape.  Another 45-percent said the country is not functioning as it should be while 80-percent said the rule of law, functioning judicial system, free and fair elections,
  80. 2021 Monday J: Meanwhile, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says, ‘Joe Biden’s transgender rules is a war on women.’  Amen.   Next, POS Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is launching an investigation into that EVIL-EVIL-EVIL Trump for him trying to get this wonderful public servant to throw the election in his favor.  Whoa.  Friends, after listening to hours of people testifying before the Georgia Senate, the secretary of state should be doing time in the hoosegow.   Finally, New York prosecutors have dropped all charges against pardoned Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort- and they kept this poor man in solitary confinement.  EVIL.
  81. 2021 Monday K: There is talk that communist China and its thug leader Xi Jinping could face charges before the International Court for committing genocide against its Uighur minority, people who are imprisoned in concentration camps being made into ‘worthy citizens’ of Mao Zedong’s horrible hellhole.  A British legal firm working on behalf of human rights releases reams of evidence showing that what the Chi-Coms are doing in Xinjiang Province to their Muslim minorities is a disguised genocide of a thriving people.  Elsewhere, reports suggest that Kim Jong Un built up his nuclear weapons arsenal and missile systems with which to deliver said atomic weapons during the course of last year.  Uncle Joe Biden, what are YOU going to do about this threat?   Meanwhile, Fox News host Tucker Carlson reports that the Biden administration is not going to deport illegal aliens convicted of violent crimes including sex crimes.  And this senile old POS wants to be president of ALL the American people or so he promised.   Moreover, Tucker Carlson reports that illegal aliens are being dumped into U.S. neighborhoods without even being tested for COVID-19.  We have said this before, when the bodies start dropping, don’t be shocked.   Finally, whereas the U.S. was apprehending 1,200 illegal aliens at the border each day last year, we are now seeing more than 3,000 illegals trying to enter the country daily.  We say minefields, 50-caliber MG emplacements, and miles and miles and miles of concertina razor wire to augment the existing fence. (Note- some of us support seeding the Rio Grande with baby alligators…)
  82. 2021 Monday L: Niccole Wallace at MSNBC believes that targeted drone strikes should be used against conservative Republicans in the United States who may not believe the 2020 Presidential Election was remotely fair.  I guess since most of us believe it was a load of festering crap, we had better start watching the skies overhead.  We already have more chem trails above our neighborhoods than ever before and NO one ever explains their purpose.  WTF is up?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Most bands if they are around long enough release anthologies and UFO is no different from the rest.  On November 11, 1986, UFO released “Anthology,” which in essence is a best of compilation featuring 14 tunes culled from “Phenomenon” to “Making Contact.”  Folks, there are other ‘best of’ compilations out there but if you have yet to introduce the music of this legendary British rock band, we say go for it now- you will be glad you did.  What the heck do you have to lose?  As you know whatever music the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day promotes is better than garbage from Coldplay, Maroon Five, and any other ‘modern day’ band.  You can thank us later.

ENDNOTES:


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

[ii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

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

[iv] In an interesting note, many believe the coup in Turkey was engineered by Erdogan to get rid of his political enemies by engineering a coup d’ gras against him.  In 2021 in the United States, following a False Flag operation in which, Antifa-led mobs stormed Capitol Hill and ‘terrified’ lawmakers, the Democrats are doing the same going after every Trump supporter.  The only people in attendance at ‘Joe Biden’s inauguration’ were 27,000 National Guard members.  The Democrats who always say, “WALLS DON’T WORK,” put up walls all over Washington, D.C. and as of today, there are still 7,000 Guardsmen on scene protecting “Usurper Joe.”
