Vice President Levi P. Morton; U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Norman J. Coleman; U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan; U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward; U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning; Black Sabbath featuring Ronnie James Dio, King Crimson featuring Robert Fripp, Nazareth featuring Darrell Sweet, Nirvana featuring Krist Novoselic, Robin Trower featuring James Dewar, Savoy Brown featuring Roger Earl, and the Who:
- 1003 Monday: The 140th Roman Catholic Pope John XVII assumes his role as the Vicar of Christ on this date. He would guide his global flock from today until November 06, 1003.

- 1792 Wednesday: Denmark abolishes the slave trade.
- 1801 Saturday: In Florida, N.Y., future 24th U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward is born. He would serve under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson from March 06, 1861, to March 04, 1869. During this time, he bought Alaska from the Russians, something many saw as foolhardy and a waste of taxpayers’ money. In fact, so many derided the purchase, they called it “Seward’s Folly;” that is, until massive gold deposits were discovered there. In 2019, the 45th president of the United States sought to buy Greenland from Denmark, and everyone laughed at him, including the Europeans. Imagine how important Alaska is to the United States geopolitically and the same could be true of Greenland. We shall see.
- 1817 Friday: Regular steamboat service up-and-down the Mississippi River begins on this date.
- 1824 Sunday: The future 22nd Republican vice president of the United States—Levi P. Morton—is born in Shoreham, Vermont, on this date. He served under President Benjamin Harrison from March 04, 1889, to March 04, 1893.
- 1827 Wednesday: In Richfield Springs, N.Y., future first U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Noman J. Coleman is born. A future Democrat, Secretary Coleman would serve under President Grover Cleveland from April 03, 1885, to February 14, 1889.
- 1831 Monday: The future 37th U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning is born. A future Democrat, he would serve under President Grover Cleveland from March 08, 1885, to March 21, 1887.

- 1863 Saturday: During the Vicksburg Campaign, the bloodiest fighting occurs at Champion’s Hill in Mississippi.

- 1866 Wednesday: Charles Elmer Hires invents root beer on this date. Elsewhere, Congress authorized the first 5-cent piece to undergo minting.
- 1868 Saturday: The U.S. Senate failed by one vote to convict President Andrew Johnson as it took its first ballot on the 11 articles of impeachment against him. Thirty-five out of 54 senators voted to find Johnson guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors” over his attempted dismissal of Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority required to convict; 10 days later, the trial ended after two other articles of impeachment went down in flames, too. The problem was Johnson wanted to follow the wishes of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln who wanted to treat the South with leniency while Lincoln’s holdover Cabinet members wanted to crush them.

- 1940 Thursday: Prime Minister Winston Churchill returns to London from Paris as the Nazi juggernaut rolls across France. For the Germans, the conquest of France is going better than expected. French troops are in full retreat while the British are struggling to reach the Channel Coast.

Elsewhere, for the first time since 2007, Bill Gates regains the title of the world’s wealthiest man by amassing a personal fortune of $72.7 billion.
- 2014 Friday: California burning- near San Diego, California, authorities inform the public that at least 20,000 acres have gone up in smoke within the county. This is the toll of 11 wildfires. This crap goes on year after year because Democrats will NOT permit proper forest management, won’t build new dams to collect fresh water instead of allowing it to flow out to sea, and putting so many restrictions atop PG&E and other power companies to fight global warming by pursuing renewable energy goals that are unrealistic. The state requires good governance and it’s not from the Democrats.

- 2018 Wednesday: As talks on a summit between North Korea and the United States continues, Pyongyang says that it ‘might cancel the talks if the U.S. continues demanding unilateral disarmament of its nuclear weapons. They know what happened to Libya that gave up its WMDs and things did not end well for the regime of Moammar Gaddafi. Likewise, talks that were supposed to occur between North and South Korea are canceled as a protest of U.S. demands.
- 2019 Thursday: According to the Global Drug Survey, English-speaking peoples are more likely to get drunk throughout the year than do, non-English speakers, with the British getting drunk the most, an average of 51 times per year. Folks, this is bogus information as Russians drink more than anyone and communist nations’ citizens (or authoritarian ones) drinking more than anyone anywhere else. Elsewhere, the Trump administration finally does something that should have happened long ago and that is to cancel $929 million federal grant funding the disastrous California High-Speed Rail project, a project that seems to enrich Democratic politicians and their Chi-Com overseers. (Note- we await Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which will make the train what it is- an expensive boondoggle).
- 2020 Saturday: Thanks to communist China, the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues as the disease continues causing problems around the world. However, information coming from independent sources within the totalitarian state report as many as 750,000 cases of the coronavirus with possible number of deaths ranging from 150,000-to-250,000. Since the authoritarian state won’t tell the world the truth, we must rely on these brave sources willing to put their lives and those of their families at risk to get the truth out to the rest of the world. Here are the global statistics for today: 4,626,632 confirmed cases what with 311,363 confirmed deaths but 1,679,428 confirmed recoveries which is amazing, the number of recoveries compared to deaths. In the United States, we have 1,497,244 confirmed cases, 89,420 confirmed deaths, but 272,525 confirmed recoveries. In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, state by state, beginning first with the Golden State: 76,793 confirmed cases, 3,204 confirmed deaths, but of course, 0 confirmed recoveries- California, give us the information! You are no better than flipping communist China! For Hawaii, we have 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. Ige. For the once great state of Washington, now beset by a socialist state government, here are the stats: 18,288 confirmed cases, 999 confirmed deaths, but like that fellator Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, NO number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Inslee won’t share the stats. Vote these scumbags out of office as soon as possible.
- 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 163,716,770 confirmed cases, +6,113, 3,393,335 confirmed deaths, +117 and 143,320,593 confirmed recoveries, +77,970. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,715,951 confirmed cases, UP 20,704 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,147 confirmed deaths, UP 308,[x] and 27,136,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,423. We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]
- 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 283,944 Chi-Vi Deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 175,665 deaths.
- 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,768,962 confirmed cases, 62,687 confirmed deaths, and 2,011,220 confirmed recoveries. Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,292,004 confirmed cases, 36,085 confirmed deaths, and 1,885,265 confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,761 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count). Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 424,930 confirmed cases, 5,684 confirmed deaths, and 205,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers). Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Grand Princess Ship: they have 122 confirmed cases, 7 confirmed deaths, and 115 confirmed recoveries.[xii]
- 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,119 confirmed cases, 6,382 confirmed deaths, and 832,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures). Let’s look at one non-country- South Korea, a rising power in East Asia: 132,290 cases of the virus, 1,903 confirmed deaths and 122,163 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]
- 2021 Sunday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,382.13, UP 360.68 points (+1.06%). Next, the NASDAQ: 13,429.98, UP 304.99 points (+2.32%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,173.85, UP 61.35 points (+1.49%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.51 per barrel, +0.14 (+0.21%). The price of GOLD is $1,844.00 per troy oz., +5.90 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.53 per troy ounce, +0.16 (+0.58%). The price of PLATINUM is $1,231.10 per troy oz, +8.30 (+0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.06 per pound, +0.01 (+0.19%).[xiv] The price of PALLADIUM is $2,892.50 per troy oz, +29.61 (+1.03%).[xv] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.43%).[xvi] Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023. As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chinese yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.94. In Trinidad and Tobago Dollar, one greenback equals 6.76 and in Tunisian Dinar, a buck equals 2.73 and in Turkish Lira, one dollar equals 8.44 of theirs.[xvii]
- 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.128 per gallon, $2.893 in Florida, $3.862 in Hawaii, and $3.535 in Washington state.[xviii] Let’s look at one other location- Utah: $3.359. 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- United Arab Emirates: $2.247 per U.S. Gallon.[xix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,294,956,742,867 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx] Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
- 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– And they used to complain about President Donald J. Trump using Department of Defense funds to defend the southern border, we learn today that Joe Biden has diverted $2 billion from federal healthcare programs to care for illegal aliens overrunning the border. Wow. Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that Joe Biden should relieve “Kooky Kamala” Harris of her duties as border czar because in 54 days in this position, the least popular woman in the United States has yet to visit the border.
- 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Australia announces it is going to keep its borders closed to all but its own citizens returning home until mid-2022. Next, the U.S. Department of Defense says that ‘yes indeed, Israel has the right to defend herself.’ Hell, we already know that. They are on a crusade to eliminate Hamas and other Islamist scum from the planet. We say continue.
- 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– the recount of ballots in Arizona has already yielded evidence that criminal activities did indeed occur in the subsequent hours after the 2020 Election. There is word that ‘Senator’ Mark Kelly could be recalled, and that Martha McSally returned to her position. We await further developments.
- 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– South Carolina reelected Drew McKissick to continue on as the state’s GOP chair of the state. Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-Fl, has reached an agreement with the Seminole Nation for expanded casino development and gambling. (Note- Chef Cherry and hubby are excited by this news- Hawaii never went for casinos). Elsewhere, new polls show that IF Joe Biden does not run for a second term in 2024 and “Kooky Kamala” Harris somehow dips her corrupt toe in the water, her popularity as a candidate is in the pits. (Note- we could have told them that- she was a disaster in California, too. Thank God she’s gone).
- 2021 Sunday J: Miscellaneous News I– Joe Exotic is seeking an early release from the slammer due to a possible cancer diagnosis. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, 1,500 trailers meant to house the homeless are sitting vacant in parking lots. In other news, the FBI has re-classified the Alexandria, Virginia, baseball shooting of a few years back as ‘domestic terrorism.’ The dumb SOBs said at first it was a ‘case of suicide by cop.’ How flipping stupid do you think all of us are? The ‘domestic terrorism’ call was the ONLY call. (Note- for the BIG GOVERNMENT folks, they need another generation or two of misinformed souls before they can begin pulling the scams on us).
- 2022 Monday: We know, we’re behind…
