Question is, does the conflict in Ukraine possess the same spark potential as did the assassination of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife, Sophie? Take out Putin NOW!

  63. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.

  81. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, that tomorrow’s ‘Justice for J6 Rally’ is going to be a setup.  We believe that tomorrow’s affair is going to be a “Mumbles” Pelosi setup what with loads of FBI informants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators, and that anyone who does not want to end up in the D.C. gulag with the other 400-plus poor souls would be wise to avoid the nation’s capital.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts one of the losers who voted to impeach him- retiring Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, RINO-OH 16th congressional district, by saying that the Rep.’s vote to impeach him was ‘very stupid.’  It was.  Look at what is happening to the losers who voted to impeach the 45th president.  One by one, they are losing support, becoming impotent, and will soon all be gone.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is weighing executive privilege in releasing documents related to President Donald J. Trump and the events of January 06, 2021.  Speaking of slobbering Joe, his approval ratings have imploded down to 44-percent- his lowest yet- which means in reality, the loser’s polls are nearer 34-30-percent than they are 44-percent.  Newsmax host Rob Finnerty says, ‘bye-bye Bide, the future we all knew was coming and didn’t want to admit.’ Meanwhile, in another slap to the feeble dictator, two large polluter nations were absent from Joe Biden’s follow-up climate summit.  Finally, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that ‘Joe Biden’s mandate regarding businesses forcing employees to get the Chi-Com vaccinations is divisive and that it undermines doctors.’
  83. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has interceded in the Purdue Pharma company settlement wanting to go after them some more.  In other Biden regime-related news, the impotent U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken deleted a tweet that said, “The U.S. stands with Hong Kong.”  Chi-Coms didn’t like that, eh?  Next- in something that sounds mighty unconstitutional to most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, the Biden regime is cutting off the supply of monoclonal antibodies to Red States.
  84. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Nineteen days after blowing up an Afghan ally of the United States and nine members of his family for being the ‘one’ who plotted and carried out the August 27, 2021, suicide bombing that killed 13 American servicemen-and-women, the Pentagon was forced to announce that it had erred taking ‘Taliban intel’ and blowing up this poor man and his family sight unseen.  Oooh, the mighty United States, whacking and stacking God knows who just as it did during the heady days of Obama-Biden.  Still, the Biden regime has better things to do- the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the way it holds ‘tranny prisoners’ in federal prisons.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Served papers yesterday while on a live radio program conducting an interview, famed political strategist Roger Stone said ‘there’s NO evidence supporting the lawsuit against him’ regarding U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the geriatric, nonagenarian leader of the House, and her claims of being behind the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  We believe you, Roger.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has okayed ‘100 National Guard troops to be on scene for the Saturday rally.’
  86. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– The Republican National Committee has released a new ad showing the countless times that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has lied, flipflopped, or laid bull crap on the American people. Ronna McDaniel- chair of the RNC- says that ‘Joe Biden’s COVID-19 mandates are the results of his far too many failures.’  Next, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says that ‘Joe Biden has NO business forcing COVID-19 mandates on the American people.’  Amen. 
  87. 2021 Friday T: Political News II– Axios reported today- to the dismay of the Biden regime- that under no circumstances will Senator Joe Manchin, D- W. VA, will vote ‘YES’ on the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Good.  Elsewhere, Arkansas senatorial candidate and U.S. Army veteran Jake Bequette says that the massive crowds attending college football games shows that the American people are ready to return to their lives.  The government had better pay attention to this. 
  88. 2021 Friday U: Political News III– Thirteen hardcore leftist Dems are pushing for expanded unemployment benefits in the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills.  Meanwhile, Health and Human Services tells Texas abortion providers, “We got your backs.”  Elsewhere, Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, D-MD 5th congressional district, says that the House will hold a vote so as to avoid imminent government default and subsequent shutdown.  Elsewhere, as mobs of illegal alien invaders swarm under the Del Rio, Texas, bridge, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that the “National Guard should be deployed to maintain order under and along that bridge as a swarm of 10,000 or more Haitian ‘asylum seekers’ mills about there.
  89. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– As outrage continues to grow regarding Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and his phone calls with the Chi-Coms, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien say the ‘NSA had NO intel suggesting anything that disingenuous fiction author Bob Woodward says in his new book, “Peril,” existed.  Mr. Woodward says that ‘General Milley called the Chi-Coms to warn them that he would warn them should Trump decide to nuke them in his final days.’  Gen. Milley must face courts marshal for being a traitor.
  90. 2021 Friday W: Business News– Ford Motor Company claims the demand for its EV Ford 150 electric trucks is so great that they are going to invest $250 million to increase production and add another 450 jobs in three plants in Michigan to meet this incredible demand.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Tesla is going to work with regulators on data security, something of which, they seem to have problems.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After many years, ‘jinx’ multi-millionaire Robert Durst finally was found guilty of murdering his best friend.  Meanwhile, the judge in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse- accused of murdering two Antifa POS- said that the prosecution cannot bring up ties between Mr. Rittenhouse and the patriotic organization, the Proud Boys.
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Big Tech News– Get this: the arbiter of what’s ‘true’ on the Internet, Google, and Apple, have removed imprisoned critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny’s ‘tactical voting app’ designed to mobilize the Russian people to fight back against the new communist dictator, Mr. Putin.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com intelligence gathering app- TikTok- has a new problem, the so-called ‘devious licks challenge’ that encourages American school-aged kids to break the law via vandalism.  Isn’t it about time we began nuking these sons of bitches?
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, the final Sears (and Roebuck) store- north of Chicago, Illinois- is set to close on November 14, 2021.  What a tragedy of mismanagement, not knowing its customers any longer, and being unable to morph with the times.  Sad, extremely sad, it did not have to happen.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: New York State News– Freshman Governor Kathy Hochul, D-NY, has given the people of her state a big gift: 191 freed inmates.  Meanwhile, three people went off on a New York City eatery host for requesting proof of vaccination before allowing them to enter.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Texas State News– Another Texas death row inmate has had his execution delayed over religious freedom claims.  Meanwhile, Governor Greg Abbott signed a $1.8 billion infrastructure bill to continue erecting the Trump border wall.  The governor said, ‘Joe Biden’s failures to do his job guarding the border has forced Texas to do the federal government’s job at protecting the border and its citizens.’  Meanwhile, state Representative Matt Krause, Republican, is going to primary sitting Attorney General Ken Paxton in 2022.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– Campus Reform students sign a petition to abolish the U.S. Constitution because it’s racist, doesn’t recognize gays, trannys, and people of color.  In other ‘moron news,’ U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-12th congressional district, a person whom capitalism has benefitted immensely, jumped on the socialist train while overseas and says that ‘capitalism has not served the U.S. well.’
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Today, Los Angeles, California, was announced to be the ‘Bedbug capital of the United States.’  Now that’s a distinction that every town and city in the entire United States covets.  Wow. No wonder we no longer like going to the city of (Fallen) Angels.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1695 what with a $400 million jackpot on the line: 17, 32, 40, 59, 61, and Mega 18.  Out of 130,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,613 apiece.
  99. 2021 Saturday: Observation of the Day– This past Tuesday, Greta Van Susteren had John “Perpetual War” Bolton on her show on Newsmax and the two discussed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to tactical nukes on the battlefield in Ukraine.   Look, if Adolf Hitler had nukes in 1944 or 1945, he would have used them against Great Britain and Russia for sure and the against U.S. if he could have delivered them.  That little cave-dwelling, slope-headed cretin Vladimir Putin sure as heck does have nukes and if he is facing Armageddon, then so will his enemies.  He already has severed energy supplies to the stupid-assed Europeans who came to depend upon him the same way American leaders delivered our country into the pockets of Xi Jinping.  We could be on the cusp of a global catastrophe much like the world was in early summer 1914 because back then, NO one believed that a far-off conflict in Eastern Europe could envelop almost all of the world in its horrifying embrace.  Yet, by the end of the year, three-quarters of the world was involved in the worst bloodletting the globe had ever seen. Serbia is not that far away from Ukraine so it’s easy to see how just the right spark- like a strike on one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants- could be the spark of the End Times.  Let us pray that someone dispatches Vladimir Putin and soon so we can avoid just such an outcome.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick next delivered a four-tune EP on June 02, 1980, the acclaimed “Found All the Parts.”  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Being an extended play much like a double-sided single with two tunes on either side, the band provides some awesome tunes.  First, we have a cover of the Beatles’ “Day Tripper” followed by “Can’t Hold On” followed by two more tracks, “Such a Good Girl” and “Take Me, I’m Yours.”  You can seek this one out at your favorite site for music or you can purchase the extended version of tomorrow’s offering as it has all four of these tunes added as bonus tracks.  Either way, the decision rests with you and your pocketbook.  Enjoy.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

246. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 03, 2022

I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible, much-desired outcome this evening. Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow? He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.

Trump is blitzing Pennsylvania while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is in Kenosha, Wisconsin, pandering to the family of Jacob Blake.  Polls show Biden has ‘commanding leads’ in battleground states such as Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Arizona.  Elsewhere, Antioch, California, Mayor Sean Wright blasts Contra Costa County District Attorney Diane Beckton that before she prosecutes looters, she will first make the determination as to whether they NEEDED the items they stole.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is beginning the process of slashing federal funding to four largely Democratic Party-held cities- Seattle, Portland, Oregon, New York City, and Washington D.C. until they reestablish and enforce law and order.  In response to this, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo tells POTUS ‘YOU CAN’T COME TO NEW YORK- OR ELSE.’ Finally, Facebook announces it will ban all political ads one week out from the November elections in the hope it can prevent Russian disinformation from swaying voters to vote ‘correctly,’ meaning for “Gropin’ Joe” Biden and not for President Donald J. Trump.
  64. 2020 Thursday A: California state Senator Scott Wiener sends SB 145 legislation to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his signature.  The bill will give judges ‘discretion’ in sentencing pedophiles and will lower penalties for child rape provided the difference in age between the so-called ‘willing child’ and the rapist is 10 years of less.  Hence, a 20-year-old sexual deviate can rape a 10-year-old child either anally or orally by claiming the youngster was a ‘willing participant’ in his rape.  Someone somewhere, do something to Senator Wiener- within the scope of the law.  California is indeed Sodom and Gomorrah. God, wipe out the state!
  65. 2020 Thursday B: Speaker Pelosi continues screeching that she ‘was framed’ for Hairgate, promising to get even with those who ‘set her up’ and was able to intimidate the hairdresser who gave her and wash and blowout into saying that ‘yes, she was setup.’  What is clear here is that Speaker Pelosi knows she is in the wrong because she canceled her weekly press conference today as she fears having to answer questions about this scandalous behavior.

  75. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As the Chinese move into Afghanistan, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, says they are going to find it hard going.  We mentioned this a while back because there are so many disparate groups in Afghanistan that it will be extremely easy for them to come into conflict with the Chinese.  Muslims despise communists and the former Soviet Union understands this extremely well.   When the Taliban or ISIS-K or the warrior tribes begin attacking Chinese infrastructure and killing their people, it will be problematic for the bottom line in Beijing.  The Chinese will have to respond heavy-handedly, and we suspect they could find themselves embroiled in their own lengthy war, perhaps 40 years?
  76. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, friends- today is Day No. 163 for the globally famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 70 since her one and only visit to the region.  Otherwise, she has been doing everything imaginable to avoid doing her job.  What a shame.  According to One America News network, here are the astounding numbers for both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens and the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals within the United States thanks to the absent Biden regime.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $493,569,376.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the refuse of the Third World for calendar year, 2021: $268,986,777,600.  Third, here is the number for illegals who have swarmed across our border for just this year: 2,756,899.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE for illegal aliens residing in our country, swamping hospitals, overrunning schools, sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers 24/7/365: 36,756,900.  You know what we say- the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million of the scumbags.  Let’s round them up, throw them aboard southbound planes, trains, automobiles, trucks, and even tramp steamers and send them back to whence the f**k they came. (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- more than $54 million has been donated to Texas to continue the building of its border wall.  Excellent.
  77. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The People’s Republic of China announced today that it is going to retain its embassy in Kabul and will provide economic assistance to the Taliban.  They will also work at building oil pipelines from Iran through the so-called “Graveyard of Empires” to western China.  In other overseas news, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga is set to resign as the end of the month following a collapse in his poll numbers.  His battle against COVID-19 has not been as good as anticipated and he is doing the honorable thing as Joe Biden should in the United States.   New elections will occur soon.
  78. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is setting harsher measures regarding COVID-19 after shunning vaccine help from neighboring China.  Uh-oh.  Loads of people are going to die.  Meanwhile, China is going to scrub all effeminate men from its airwaves.  Perhaps we should do that here in the United States? 
  79. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new report says that 83-percent of recent blood donations ALL show evidence of COVID-19 antibodies.  Meanwhile, as the U.S. government continues pushing forward with demanding COVID-19 booster shots (again, follow the money), the European Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there is “NO evidence of a need for a third shot.”  The FDA said today that it’s going to take additional time to determine whether a need for a booster (or a never-ending series of booster) shots before ordering them.  Still, if and when we go down this crazy road, Pfizer will be the one pumping out the boosters.  (Note- everyone begin investing in Pfizer stock.  NOW).
  80. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– A new report suggests that ‘unvaccinated cadets at the U.S. Border Patrol Academy could soon be booted unless they roll up their arms for the jab.  Wow.  Next, crazy Dr. Ashish Jha says, ‘it’s not crazy to think there is a need for a third round of COVID-19 booster shots.’  Dr. Jha, do us a favor: shut the hell up.  WHY do we need COVID-19 vaccines much less a damned booster shot when the vaccines contain an extinct virus?  The original virus is long since gone, we are moving through one variant after another such as the Delta, the Lambda, and now the notorious ‘MU.’  Stop spreading bullshit, please.  Meanwhile, a new Rasmussen poll says that viewers of conservative news channels have better understanding of the risks associated with the vaccines or of death facing them whether they get the vaccines or don’t get the vaccines.
  81. 2021 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $58.83 (3) Johnson & Johnson $175.04 (4) BioNTech $334.30 (5) Moderna $416.70.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: -(1) Pfizer $46.60 (2) AstraZeneca $58.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $172.93 (4) BioNTech $358.48 (5) Moderna $382.22.  See the trend?  FOLLOW THE MONEY!

  83. 2021 Friday N: 2020 Election Audit– People are beginning to inquire as to WHEN the Arizona 2020 Election audit results are going to be released?  So far, NO WORD as to when which is leading some people to speculate that Attorney General Mark Brnovich is sitting atop them because the RINO has been bought off by Democrat allies.  We will keep you posted.  Meanwhile, the Badger State is ordering its own 2020 Election Audit as Pennsylvania prepares to do.
  84. 2021 Friday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump endorsed famed NFL star Hershel Walker to defeat freshman Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, in November 2022.  Excellent choice.  Speaking of the President, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th CD, says he believes that President Trump will be running for a third term in 2024. 
  85. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators are demanding feeble old Joe Biden provide information on the numbers of Americans he abandoned behind the lines in Afghanistan.  Next, bowing to pressure from the American people, Joe Biden released an executive order ordering the FBI to release all relevant information concerning September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the role the Saudis played in it.  We shall see what happens.  Finally, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel reported tonight that financial aid will make its way to the Taliban because they have promised to combat CLIMATE CHANGE.  How about that?  (Joe, we’ll fight CLIMATE CHANGE, too, by stop eating gaseous vegetables.  How do we get some of this easy money?)
  86. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Crazy old Joe Biden is lying yet again, this time saying how he ‘spent a lot of time at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, following the white supremacist attack on the place of worship back on October 27, 2018.’  Now, Joe believes he was Donald J. Trump because President Trump is the man who visited the site and met with the rabbi, not senile old Joe.
  87. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– New reports suggest that Susan Rice, Ron Klain, and Barack Hussein Obama are the ones calling the shots in the sagging ears of senile old Joe Biden.  Next, this is extremely puzzling, and we heard today that the Biden regime wants to remove penalties on the trafficking of deadly fentanyl into the United States.  WTF?
  88. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– Much excitement is swirling around the GOP candidate- Cicely Davis- seeking to unseat the extremely unpopular rabble rouser, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th CD, in 2022.  Omar is reputed to have married her brother to scam the U.S. immigration system and is a strong advocate of jihad and other Islamist ideas.  We will send money to Ms. Davis.  Omar and her fellow (Suicide) Squad skanks- Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, and Cori “The Bitch” Bush all must be ejected from office in November 2022 and onto the scrap heap of defeated left-wing politicians.
  89. 2021 Friday T: Economic News– The White House is running for cover because the expected 720,000 new jobs in the month of July collapsed to a measly 235,00 jobs, most of which, we suspect are little more than ‘hamburger-flipper jobs.’  Shame on the Biden regime for destroying the U.S. economy.  Still, it did not stop the brain-dead usurper in the White House to take a dig at President Donald J. Trump during a ‘jobs speech’ today when he mumbled, “I took on a nation in crisis.”  Joe, YOU caused the crisis, the nation was doing quite well before you stole the 2020 Presidential Election.   In other news, Paris Dennard who once worked with Donald J. Trump and who works for the GOP says that Joe Biden has failed the black community.  He pointed out that unemployment for black males has gone up to 9.1 percent, for black females to 7.9 percent, and for black youths to 17.9 percent.  Man, oh, man, Joe Biden, you are helping black Americans extremely well, aren’t you?  You loser.
  90. 2021 Friday U: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former Roman Catholic Church Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Massachusetts is set to be arraigned on charged he molested a teenager.  Meanwhile, Jacob Chansley, the so-called QANON shaman reportedly is taking a plea deal that will see him do 41-51 months behind bars instead of close to 50 for his role in wandering into the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.
  91. 2021 Friday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, plans to follow the Texas Pro-Life law in her state.  She wants to make South Dakota a strong Pro-Life refuge and not a barbarous, baby chop shop like many leftist-controlled states. [xx]  Speaking of Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton says that abortion law ‘must be at the state level and not the federal.’  We concur.  San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone says that abortion is not a ‘religious issues’ but a ‘fundamental human rights issue.’  Still, the Biden regime aided by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY are working overtime to uncover a scheme by which they can overturn the new Texas fetal heartbeat law.  A Senate panel is now carrying out a probe on this ‘evil law,’ one the U.S. Supreme Court allowed to stand… Finally, liberal groups are suing individual Texas lawmakers over the new fetal heartbeat law in the Lone Star State.
  92. 2021 Friday W: Social Media News – Twitter launched a new feature that will allow SOME users to earn money from tweeting.  Bet you won’t see any conservatives making any money from Twitter.   Meanwhile, YouTube censored a video supporting the recall of California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  Shame on them.
  93. 2021 Friday X: Big Tech News– Apple Inc. finally got around to eliminating a homeless community on their property in Silicon Valley.  They offered all manner of aid and help to its inhabitants, most of whom turned it down and wandered away when the area was cleansed, sanitized, and made useful again.  Advocates of urban outdoorsmen raised a BIG STINK, but it is cruel to allow people to live like animals.  We must reclaim and rehabilitate them and return them to society as contributing members.
  94. 2021 Friday Y: Weather News I– In New York City in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, at least 44 people have lost their lives in various storm-related mishaps.  Some drowned in basement apartments, others were swept away, and still others drowned in submerged vehicles.  The Democrats are howling that Global Warming is the root cause but folks, hurricanes typically occur every year and some of them can be extremely destructive.   Speaking of Ida, slobbering Joe Biden visited New Orleans today to visit storm-related damage there and lo and behold NOT a single outcry from the Fake News Media screeching that Joe was ‘taking away resources by his visit that were needed elsewhere.’  Funny how this works… Elsewhere, when Ida hit New Jersey, the storm-generated tornado we saw on the news had winds of 150 mph.  Wow.
  95. 2021 Friday Z: War on Terror News-Terrorism News-Jihad News– Member of the ‘Beatles,’ an ISIS execution group, British-born Alexanda Kotey, pled guilty in a U.S. courtroom to murdering and torturing numerous people, Americans among them, overseas in the now defeated ISIS caliphate.  He is set to spend the remainder of his crappy life in a federal prison.  In other news, police in New Zealand swarmed a local grocery store after a jihadist whipped out a large knife and began slashing shoppers and within minutes, shot the suspect dead.  Good.  Hang his corpse up for the crows.
  96. 2021 Friday AA: California State News– California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, DS, says that ’21 percent of the mail-in ballots in the recall election of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom are already pouring in.’  This should give the Dems ample opportunity to see how many ballots they are going to have to order from other states so they can maintain this POS governor in office.
  97. 2021 Friday BB: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The stupid California teacher Annette Franco who bragged in a TikTok video how she removed the reviled American flag from her grade school classroom and supplanted it with the homosexual rainbow flag and had her kids pledge allegiance to the foul thing has been removed from the classroom.  Yet, she will sit in a CTA rubber room for the rest of her days drawing her full check and benefits.
  98. 2021 Friday CC: Observation of the Day– Here’s an observation for you: the Ancient Greeks were ‘WOKE,’ and the Romans steamrolled over them.  More than a thousand years later, the Ancient Romans equally became ‘WOKE’ and the barbarians overran them.  For all you pansified losers prancing around demanding all things ‘WOKE,’ if you succeed, you are more or less sealing the fate of the United States- the brightest spot on the planet for human rights- by guaranteeing we are more concerned with gender, perversion, homosexuality, and other signs of the End Times.  However, you will be among the first to go when the Chinese, the Russians, the Islamists, or some other culture takes us over.  It will be a pleasure watching you thrown from skyscrapers, hung from helicopters and construction cranes, or any of the other ways devised by the enemies of human rights and freedoms.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.  
  99. 2021 Friday DD: Observation of the Day II– Regarding abortion, whatever happened to personal responsibility?  The fact that women continue getting knocked up implies that relations between men and women have become extremely sloppy.  While most gay men use condoms, it appears that women are open to any and all penetration sans any form of birth control (condoms, IUDs, birth control pills, and other easily accessible forms of preventing unwanted pregnancies) which then leaves abortion as the ONLY form of correcting a ‘mistake.’  I am inclined to believe that where once President Bill Clinton said that abortion should be ‘safe, legal, and rare,’ and that most Americans can accept termination of a pregnancy within the first trimester, the reason for abortion at ALL STAGES of fetal and even post-fetal development, i.e., birth, is because Planned Parenthood encourages it.  The reason for the encouragement is because they make BIG BUCKS just as they can continue the slaughter of babies of color, black women being number one among the recipients of abortions.  This is evil and it must stop.  Once a country makes it legal (and easy) to get rid of unwanted babies, the deformed, the mentally ill, and the old and senile (watch out, Joe) will be the next.  Think about it.  The Nazis labeled the unwanted as ‘useless eaters,’ people who contributed nothing to society (in their view) and who were in need of euthanasia.  Let’s return to men and women exercising personal responsibility and not becoming part of the Satanic offerings the left wants us all to be.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.
  100. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1691 what with a $323 million jackpot on the line: 07, 10, 12, 61, 65, and Mega 03.  Out of 111,113 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,292.
  101. 2021 Friday FF: Friends, the government says via a recent white paper that if an American citizen questions the efficacy of wearing masks or the results of the 2020 Presidential and National Elections, that person can and most likely will be considered a TERRORIST.  If that is the case, then so be it but I will tell our friends in the government this: there are far more of us than there are of YOU.  You would be wise to remember that.  Also, the moment the Joestapo shows up, demand a lawyer.  Period.  God bless America!
  102. 2022 Saturday: I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible outcome this evening.  Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow?  He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.  I am praying for a similar outcome because our nation cannot stand much more of the hateful, racist, divisiveness that is ripping the fabric of our great nation apart.  As I’ve said, I think arresting the man in a public setting will set off his minions which will then lead to civil unrest across the country thus giving us the pretext for our noble president to declare martial law and to postpone the November elections.  We must postpone the elections so as to secure our imperiled nation and we must send all the insurrectionists to reeducation camps so they can become contributing members of society once again.  Let’s take a page out of the China-Uighur Muslim playbook and put it to good use here- I think it will work.  Let me know what you think- Chef Itzi Nakamura.

232. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2022

It is clear that Senate Minority ‘Leader’ “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell really does not want to win the Senate back if these are to be his new senators because he knows that IF they are, he most likely won’t be re-elected ‘majority leader.’ He is, after all, one of the worst leaders the GOP has ever had much like John Boehner and Paul Ryan were losers in the House.

Trump’s bid to block the subpoena launched by Trump-hater District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. of New York County.  This loser has been unfairly pursuing Donald Trump since he assumed office.  Speaking of New York, New York City is investigating Mayor Bill Di Blasio’s wife for having a lavish 14-person staff and for spending millions of the taxpayers’ dollars to do God knows what.  We will see where this goes, too.
  60. 2020 Thursday A: In Grand Prairie, Texas, the plastic plant that ignited yesterday continues burning today.  Firefighters believe it will require several more days for it to subside.  Halfway around the world, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un delegates more power to his lovely sister, Kim Yo-Jong which makes her his de facto number two.  Many people question as to when she will become the NUMBER ONE- if she is not already and the guy many believe to be Kim turns out to be a doppelganger.  We are keeping an eye on this one, too.

Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and then- as far as we know- “Pro-China Joe” Biden will give his somnambulant speech.  Hopefully, he will not get up there and blow it by going blank with drool spilling off his chin.  Oh, a feeling of exhilaration fills the hearts of the Democratic-Socialists with their pick- don’t you know the American people are ‘going to have to run to keep up with Mr. Biden’ if he somehow steals the November Election?

[xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Oklahoma: $2.889.  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- Slovenia: $5.560 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,664,979,325,196 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 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.  
  72. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As the Biden pullout of Afghanistan continues down its disastrous path, new reports say that the Taliban is going door to door searching for Christians.  They will undergo beheading.   Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, says that Afghanistan is becoming the new ‘jihadist Club Med.’ Next, new reports suggest that senile Joe Biden ignored calls from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for ’36 hours’ so the allies could get their people out of the country in an orderly manner rather than the mess the world now sees.  Elsewhere, the United Arab Emirates agrees to host 5,000 Afghan refugees until the United States can bring them into the country.  Next, Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, says ‘blame politics, not U.S. intel for the snafu in Afghanistan.’  Add to that the fact the House GOP is demanding to know ‘how many American weapons were left in Afghanistan for the Taliban to capture.’
  73. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must.  Today is Day No. 149 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 56th day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $582,096,799.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $251,541,056,765.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,675,879.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,667,877.  (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).  U.S. District Court Judge Miranda Du in Reno, Nevada, ruled that a 1929 immigration law that makes crossing back into the U.S. after being deported a felony as somehow ‘unconstitutional.’  WTF!  
  74. 2021 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey cites the fentanyl crisis in his lawsuit against the Biden regime demanding a return to the ‘Remain in Mexico Policy’ enacted by President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of courts, a U.S. court denies the Biden regime’s request to forestall the return of the “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Good.  Watch the Biden regime ignore it.
  75. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the illegal alien invasion continues driving UP COVID-19 cases, Florida and Texas are opening antibody treatment centers to help sick residents in their states.  Elsewhere- in Louisiana- Attorney General Jeff Landry, GOP, says the New Orleans Saints Chi-Vi mandates are completely ‘unacceptable.’ In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu-related news, ex-National Security Adviser H.R.

  76. 2021 Friday J: Health and Medical Alerts– The Food and Drug Administration- the FDA- plans to give the Pfizer vaccine full approval this upcoming Monday.  Elsewhere, Customs and Border Enforcement seizes 3,000 phony COVID-19 vaccine passports in Alaska, all of them from communist China.  Here’s a good one: following Barack Hussein Obama’s birthday fest last week, 74 people on Martha’s Vineyard now have COVID-19- talk about a super-spreader event.
  77. 2021 Friday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– Here are today’s stock prices: (1) Pfizer $48.70 (2) AstraZeneca $59.39 (3) Johnson & Johnson $179.50 (4) BioNTech $348.68 (5) Moderna $382.98.  The reason we present this information is so that the readers can understand WHY the Democrats and their RINO supplicants continue pushing everyone to get the vaccinations and then the boosters and to continue wearing Chi-Com-manufactured masks, possibly forever.  The answer is because politicians invest in these surefire companies because vaccine manufacturers are ineligible to be sued no matter how devastating or onerous the reactions or long-term effects are.  What a money-making scheme.  Dems pick the contracts which get loads of federal tax dollars which them come back to the Dems via campaign donations.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Friday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– Here are today’s stock prices: (1) Raytheon: $84.10 (2) General Dynamics: $197.41 (3) Boeing: $212.72 (4) Lockheed Martin: $357.24 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $363.00.  What we said above applies to national defense stocks, too.  The military-industrial complex in action.

  81. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden was close to an hour late today to give a ‘briefing’ on the disaster in Afghanistan.  Next, a new report suggests that Joe Biden is praying for ‘limited fallout from the Afghan debacle.’  Another report suggests that mentally incompetent Joe Biden will be headed off to Delaware either tonight or tomorrow morning.  The Antitrump requires his “Manchurian Candidate”-style tune-up so he can appear somewhat coherent.  At his incoherent briefing today, regime leader Joe Biden said the “U.S. will maintain laser focus on terrorists.”  Sure, Joe, whatever you say.  Terrorists are pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border as we speak.  Speaking of Joe, he says there ‘is greater danger from ISIS than from the Taliban.’  Joe also promises to bring home every American in Afghanistan who wants to come home.  He just does not know who all is there seeking exit out of the country.
  82. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price continues taking heat over his lack of preparedness and lack of transparency at State Department briefings.  The dimwit can hardly answer what he had for breakfast much less speak coherently about the regime’s disaster in Afghanistan.  Like every other face of the regime, the loser is nothing more than an empty suit.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice is seeking to overturn the conviction of Taliban traitor Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl so they can clear him of all charges.  The DOJ is also seeking to get rid of the ‘public charge’ rule enacted by the Trump administration that prohibited illegal aliens from gaining entry into the U.S. if the country would have to support them.  Good.  Just what we need, Joe- more deadbeats. 
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new poll from the Trafalgar Group and the Convention of States Action says that a large majority of the American people are appalled by Joe Biden’s handling of the Afghan withdrawal.  Speaking of the disaster, even Democrats are calling for hearings on Joe Biden’s messy withdrawal from the forlorn country.  Another poll released yesterday by the Morning Consult Poll says that a plurality of Americans blames Joe Biden for the disaster unfolding across the Central Asian nation and not President Donald J. Trump.  Another poll falling atop these others says that ‘less than 40-percent of the American people believe slobbering Joe Biden is running the country. 
  84. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says she is preparing to launch articles of impeachment against Joe Biden.  (Note- better include them for “Kooky Kamala” Harris, too).  Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, agrees with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the ‘mess’ in Afganistan was easily ‘preventable.’ Rep. Adam Smith, DS-WA 9th congressional district, says Joe Biden’s ‘chaos remarks don’t add up.’  (Note- look for the 25th Amendment coming soon.  Poor Joe).  Elsewhere, old video from 2014 has bubbled up once again in which, Senator John McCain, RINO-AZ, says that Anthony Blinken is a ‘danger to the United States.’
  85. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘defending President Donald J. Trump cost him his friendship with far-left Larry David.’  It’s his loss, Dr. Dershowitz.  In other news, freshman Senator Mark Kelly, DS-AZ, is facing scrutiny for failing to disclose investments in a Chi-Com technology company ahead of last year’s elections.  Uh-oh.  In other political news, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is coming to the Golden State to campaign for a fellow loser, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom ahead of the recall election on September 14, 2021.  We Californians are looking forward to that.
  86. 2021 Friday T: Political News IV– Now that AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is with the angels (or…), the AFL-CIO Has elected its most diverse leadership in the history of the organization.  Liz Schuler becomes the first female president while two black gentlemen take the numbers two and three spots: Tefere Gebre becomes executive vice president and Fred Redmond becomes secretary-treasurer.  Let us hope they are NOT mob-connected.   In other news, Tucker Carlson reported that Infowars host Owen Shroyer is facing time in the D.C. slammer all because he stood on the steps of the U.S. Capitol but did not go in on January 06, 2021.  Tucker reports that the real reason he is facing trouble is because he said nasty things about Rep. Jerrold “Doughnut-Gobbling” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, sometime last year.  IF that is all it takes, we’re all going to the gulags.
  87. 2021 Friday U: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear a concealed carry gun Second Amendment case next month; one the Biden regime hopes will allow them to strip Americans of the rights to carry legally owned firearms concealed with a permit.  We hope the court will rule favorably for Americans’ Constitutional rights.

  91. 2021 Friday Y: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– Capitol Hill Police Officer Lt. Michael Leroy Byrd[xx] is breathing easier this evening as he has been exonerated from all possible charges for the shooting death of U.S. Air Force veteran and patriot Ashli Babbitt.  (Note- everyone knows “Mumbles” Pelosi had him cleared).  Meanwhile, the new FALSE FLAG operation, the so-called bomber outside the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., yesterday, Floyd Ray Roseberry, has been charged with a variety of crimes.
  92. 2021 Friday Z: Big Tech News– Yesterday, the Federal Trade Commission filed a new monopoly lawsuit against Facebook.  Speaking of Facebook, they have now unveiled their new ‘virtual workplace’ app complete with avatars.  What a load of crap.   Meanwhile, the Anti-Defamation League is urging Twitter to ban the Taliban leaders from its site.  President Trump is still banned from the platform, but all the Anti-Semites and jihadists can say whatever the hell they want.  This is frigging crazy.

  95. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– After the big lug Arnold Schwarzenegger insulted millions of Americans by saying “Screw your freedoms” when it comes to the debate on mask-waring, Australian actor Calum Von Moger who portrayed Arnold in a film about the guy has severed all ties with the former failed California governor over his casual dismissal of concerned Americans.  Good for you.
  96. 2021 Friday DD: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The new host of the game show, “Jeopardy!” Mike Richards is stepping down saying he does not want ‘past sexist tweets’ to create problems for the popular show.
  97. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1687 what with a $256 million jackpot on the line: 41, 43, 51, 57, 70, and Mega 01.  Out of 88,189 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $24,149 apiece.
  98. 2022 Saturday: Friends, many interested observers of the 2022 Mid-Terms are beginning to get frustrated with Senate Republicans.  I mean, why aren’t they out there fighting to help Ron Johnson retain his seat?  Why have they left J.D. Vance, Blake Masters, and Dr. Oz out to pasture?  I mean, I would have voted for Jim Lamon in Arizona because Masters seems to be an odd choice just as someone else might have been better than Dr. Oz.  Still, they are who they are and the money must begin flowing into their coffers now.  It is clear that Senate Minority ‘Leader’ “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell really does not want to win the Senate back if these are to be his new senators because he knows that IF they are, he most likely won’t be re-elected ‘majority leader.’  He is, after all, one of the worst leaders the GOP has ever had much like John Boehner and Paul Ryan were losers in the House.  We need to elect Republicans willing to fight on behalf of the American people, not for the Chi-Coms, the illegal aliens, and the corporations.  How about fighting for us, Mitch?  Let’s fight to neuter Joe Biden ASAP.  We still have 81 days so let’s put them to effective use.  Just dreaming, I guess.  Like I said yesterday, we must consign ourselves to the new global power structure- it’s better to be with them than against them.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Today’s rendition is the “Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Album,” an album that came out on March 23, 2016.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[ii] Perhaps one day we will promote the music of the Seeds, the Electric Prunes, and the Amboy Dukes.  We should have done these bands around the same time we did the Strawberry Alarm Clock.

[iii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

[iv] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

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

[vi] We promoted the music of Led Zeppelin- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through vocalist Paul Rodgers of both Free and Bad Company on Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope you will check them all out.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[viii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[xx] We believe Officer Byrd is a man who has ‘misplaced’ her service arm on at least two occasions.  We suspect- and this is speculation- that Nancy Pelosi OWNS him because of this and that he was told on January 6, 2021, to SHOOT someone and Ms. Babbitt was the one who took the bullet.  In our eyes, IF he is indeed the officer who shot an unarmed woman who did not threaten him, he will forever be a murderer. 

230. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 18, 2022

2022 Thursday: Rep. Liz Cheney- a woman we lovingly have labeled “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney due to her obsessive-compulsive desire to destroy President Donald J. Trump- cannot read the writing on the wall. The voters of Wyoming said, ‘NO MORE, go the hell away.’ At least that pathetic little piece of crap Adam Kinzinger from Illinois had sense enough NOT even to run for another term.

  57. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 21,974,393 confirmed cases, UP by 234,892 cases, 776,157 confirmed deaths, DOWN by 84 (yesterday, sources reported 776,241) deaths, and 13,934,532 confirmed recoveries, UP by 231,569 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,563,646 confirmed cases, UP by 74,883 new cases, 173,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,567 new deaths, and 2,816,468 confirmed recoveries, UP by 53,329 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 thirty million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true.
  58. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics 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: 632,667 confirmed cases, 11,342 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,215 confirmed cases, forty confirmed deaths, and 1,868 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 67,721 confirmed cases, 1,785 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us look at one more state, the Empire State: 426,571 confirmed number of cases, 32,833 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you foul-smelling piece of cesspool grime, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.
  59. 2020 Tuesday E: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals- here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,778.07, DOWN 66.84 points (-0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,210.84, UP 81.12 points (+0.73%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,389.78, UP 7.79 points (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $2,013.50 per troy oz., +0.40 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, -0.155 (-0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $977.00 per troy oz, +1.60 (+0.16%) while the price of COPPER is $2.97 per pound, -0.0005 (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.61 per barrel, -0.28 (-0.65%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.92 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  60. 2020 Tuesday F: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka REAL name Sandy Cortez, seconds the NOMINATION OF SEN. BERNIE SANDERS OF VERMONT FOR PRESIDENT.  She just spit in the face of Nancy Pelosi and of the Old Guard.  Wow.  We now believe what we heard to be so is so, that AOC is supporting the far-left challenger of Nancy Pelosi in November, Muslim attorney Shahid Buttar- you heard it here first.  Will the Squad follow in AOC’s footsteps?  Finally, the organizers conduct the roll call, and the result is Joe Biden (JOBI) winning 3,627 delegates and Sen. Bernie Sanders winning 1,151.  Congratulations, Joe, you have wanted this for decades.  Good for you.
  61.  2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 209,977,126 confirmed cases, +651,987, 4,403,271 confirmed deaths, +9,859 and 188,144,233 confirmed recoveries, +258,258.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 38,016,008 confirmed cases, UP 130,753 from yesterday’s reporting, 641,080 confirmed deaths, UP 1,007, [ix] and 30,324,754 confirmed recoveries, UP 35,473.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]  
  62. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 322,323 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 81,755 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  63. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,163,495 confirmed cases, 64,745 confirmed deaths, and 2,204,176 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,002,763 confirmed cases, 41,130 confirmed deaths, and 2,318,544 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 52,846 confirmed cases, 554 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 518,788 confirmed cases, 6,319 confirmed deaths, and 239,311 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Nebraska: they have 235,075 confirmed cases, 2,302 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [xi]   
  64. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 962,193 confirmed cases, 6,723 confirmed deaths, and 896,124 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Comoros, 183rd country on the list: 4,039 cases of the virus, 147 confirmed deaths and 3,882 confirmed recoveries. [xii]     
  65. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: Thanks to Joe Biden being the WORST president in U.S. history- even worse than foreign-born Barack Hussein Obama and the ‘peanut farmer’- DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,960.69, DOWN 382.59 points (-1.08%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,525.91, DOWN 130.27 points (-0.89%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,000.27, DOWN 47.81 points (-1.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.54 per barrel, +4.90 (+0.27%).  The price of GOLD is $1,789.20 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $23.49 per troy ounce, +0.07 (+0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $995.00 per troy oz, -1.40 (-0.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.11 per pound, -0.01 (-0.19%). [xiii] The price of PALLADIUM is $2,426.60 per troy oz, -62.22 (-2.50%). [xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $19,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $775,000.00 per troy oz., -5,000.00 (-0.64%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,565.50 per troy oz., -28.75 (-1.11%).  [xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000022.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.03.     In El Salvadoran Colon, one greenback equals 8.75 and in Sao Tomean Dobra, a buck equal 20,714.34 and in Saudi Riyal, one dollar equals 3.75 of theirs.[xvi]        
  66. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.405 per gallon, $3.006 in Florida, $4.091 in Hawaii, and $3.906 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other location- New York: $3.224.  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- South Korea: $5.487 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,656,592,489,318 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 Hong Kong, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Cayman Islands with $223 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.
  67. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As Joe Biden sits spanking the wank at Camp David, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is going to host a meeting of the G7 nations next week (a little late, there, Mr. PM) to discuss the calamity befalling Afghanistan.  Next, as Afghanistan continues sliding into the abyss, the Australian military was able to rescue twenty-six people from the jaws of the Taliban.  Moving on, exiled Afghan President Ashraf Ghani says he left his country to prevent unnecessary bloodshed, not to steal the country’s treasury.  Meanwhile, he plans to remain in the United Arab Emirates.  In other Afghan news, on the same day the Taliban said, ‘we will respect women’s rights,’ they shot dead a woman in the streets who was not wearing a burqa.  Next, protests in Jalalabad turn violent as the Taliban continues consolidating power.
  68. 2021 Wednesday G: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News II– The U.S. State Department announced today that IT CANNOT secure the road into Hamid Karzai International Airport so that Americans can evacuate the collapsing country.  “Shelter in place” is what they are telling American citizens.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban are extremely emboldened by Joe Biden’s failures.’  Next, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and chairperson of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley addressed reporters today.  Neither one is very illustrious but the political general- Milley- lied bald-faced and unabashedly to reporters when he claimed- get this- ‘the U.S. didn’t see this coming.’  The liar also says that ‘U.S. troops CANNOT help Americans make it to the airport to escape the country.’  What a POS.  Meanwhile, Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassan told Newsmax that ‘Joe Biden halted President Donald J. Trump’s crisis response’ program in Afghanistan.
  69. 2021 Wednesday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Amigos, hoy dia is the 148th day since El Jefe Joe Biden appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be his ‘border czar’ as well as her 54th day since her sole visit to the border.  Tragic.  Next, here are the numbers as compiled by OAN daily.  First, here is the cost for this day alone of caring for the cast-offs of the world: $535,997,088.  Second, here is the horrible cost for just this year of caring for the invaders: $251,494,957,056.  Third, here are the numbers of the illegals that have made it into our country this year: 2,577,622.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative effort for the illegal alien invaders running amok in our country: 36,577,620.  (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). [xx] 
  70. 2021 Wednesday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster, cross-border shootings from Mexico on U.S. Border Patrol agents are on the increase as the cartels continue ‘feeling their oats’ with the lawlessness afflicting the region.  Next, a new poll says that a vast majority of the American people favor the immigration policies of President Donald J. Trump compared to the lack of any of the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is trying to slash the numbers of ‘asylum cases’ along the southern border.  This means look for MORE illegal aliens coming to a town or city near you.
  71. 2021 Wednesday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Chi-Coms are deploying numerous warships to the Taiwan Straits and are telling Taipei that “Joe Biden is not coming to protect you.”  The Biden regime then vowed to support Taiwan after the Chi-Coms said what they said.  (Note- we do not believe Joe Biden even knows WHAT Taiwan is much less WHERE it is).  Elsewhere, the Russians were testing a prototype military transport plane that sadly went down, killed both pilots and the flight engineer outside Moscow.
  72. 2021 Wednesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Chicago to bring back indoor mask mandates for ALL citizens.   Next, Joe Biden is going to require that ALL NURSING HOME STAFF must be fully vaccinated, or they cannot work.  Elsewhere, Disneyworld tweaked its mask policy to allow visitors to go without masks when outdoors in their theme parks.  Next, unvaccinated students at Quinnipiac University face fines and loss of internet privileges.  Finally, parents in Louisiana are rebelling against Governor John Bel Edwards’ harsh mask measures in the state’s schools.  Stand and fight, people, stand and fight.
  73. 2021 Wednesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $49.33 (2) AstraZeneca $59.44 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.26 (4) BioNTech $363.99 (5) Moderna $398.80.  The reason we compile these numbers for our readers is so that you can understand WHY there is this ongoing push for everyone to get vaccinated, get vaccinated again, and now get flipping booster shots, thus, the politicians invest in these companies.  When the federal government buys vaccines and distributes them free not just to the American people but to illegal frigging aliens and to countries around the world that hate our guts, the profit levels soar by as much as 1,000-percent.  The stock dividends pour millions of dollars into the pockets of every politician invested in these companies.  It is your classic money-go-round, all money leads back to our political leaders of both parties.  As if right on cue, U.S. officials are calling for ALL Americans to begin getting booster shots in September, eight months after their second vaccination, so as to ‘protect them’ from the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $85.48 (2) General Dynamics: $196.60 (3) Boeing: $219.09 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.68 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $363.16.  Ditto what we said in the prior segment.  Politicians decry the companies producing the ‘weapons of war’ yet invest heavily in them.  This is a shame, and all elected leaders should undergo automatic banning from investing in companies that win big fat government contracts.  
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  The FBI is joining an election machine hacking probe in the great state of Colorado.  Meanwhile, Georgia approves of a Fulton County election audit where loads of election fraud occurred last year.
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Regarding the disaster ongoing in Afghanistan, President Donald J. Trump says our nation has ‘never been so humiliated as it now is.’  President Trump had much more to say about the usurper living in the White House, senile old fool that the invader is: “Joe Biden destroyed respect for the U.S. by abandoning Afghanistan in a mess and it makes the country much more vulnerable than ever.”  The President’s son, Donald J. Trump Jr. told Newsmax that the ‘Taliban waited for a weakling to be in the White House before they did what they did.’
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden News I– As Afghanistan worsens by the minute, Joe Biden’s ‘once HIGH (we do not believe this) approval ratings went from around 54-percent to 43-percent.  We doubt he ever was above 45-percent once he took the oath and opened the southern border to the millions of illegal alien invaders. [xxi]  Joe Biden told ABC News that ‘chaos was unavoidable in withdrawing from Afghanistan’ (and that everything is President Donald J. Trump’s fault).  Joe Biden also says that the U.S. military is going to relocate tens of thousands of Afghan ‘refugees’ to the following states: Texas, Wisconsin, and Virginia.  None of them are undergoing any type of vetting, however.  Joe Biden also is inviting the new prime minister of Israel to visit the White House as the relationship between the U.S. and the world’s sole Jewish state is fraying.
  78. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is allocating $500 million to help Afghan refugees get out of Afghanistan even as more than 40,000 Americans are trapped within the hellhole.  In other Biden regime news, loser “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces she has NO PLANS of not going overseas on her first trip abroad to Vietnam and Singapore even as the Afghanistan debacle continues to implode.  Moving on, Joe Biden is going to war against various school systems around the country.  Any school district that won’t permit trannys- i.e., chicks with dicks- from playing with the girls will face the wrath of the Biden regime.  Likewise, any school with a mask ban mandate now is going to have to contend with the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division (WTF?).  This is crazy.
  79. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News I– Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, is taking his Freedom Fest on the road.  He says the tour is about positive messaging and fun opportunities for the GOP.  Next, Rep. Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says there ‘MUST be an Afghanistan commission in the House to probe this unmitigated disaster.’  Amen.  Moving on, Vice President Mike Pence says that ‘Joe Biden’s retreat from Afghanistan is a reckless retreat.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that ‘any novice can see that Afghanistan is a mess.’
  80. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News II– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to show her mind is becoming Jell-O when the nonagenarian senile politician said that ‘leaving equipment behind is what happens when there is a military withdrawal.’[xxii]  Saying this alone means she should undergo forced removal from office NOW and possible incarceration in the D.C. gulags.  Regarding this mummified loser, a new Morning Consult poll says that the border crisis and the collapse of Afghanistan have overshadowed the drive to push through the infrastructure bill.   
  81. 2021 Wednesday T: Political News III– The U.S. Department of Justice announced today that the Missouri gun laws are ‘unconstitutional.’  F-off, DOJ.  Next, Miranda Devine, New York Post columnist, told Tucker Carlson tonight on his program that Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district, did indeed marry her brother to remain in the country.  DNA shows that her brother and she have a 99.999998-percent match thus she committed fraud on the U.S. government.  There are NO statute of limitations on immigration fraud.   Finally, nutrition company REDCON1 is severing ties with RINO loser Arnold Schwarzenegger over his stupid remark, “Screw your freedoms” when it comes to the right NOT to wear a mask.  Good.  Arnold should go back to where the f**k he came from.
  82. 2021 Wednesday U: Political News IV– Lara Logan told Tucker Carlson on Fox News tonight that there is NO way that the U.S. government did not know what was coming in Afghanistan.  The Taliban live in neighboring Pakistan so there is no way that the U.S. failed to notice the military buildup there nor any reason as to WHY they didn’t begin bombing the border crossings where they flooded into the country.  (Note- is it possible that the Biden regime gave the Taliban the ‘go-ahead’ to invade the country and subjugate it?)
  83. 2021 Wednesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is fighting tooth and nail to lure vulnerable moderate Democrats into supporting the ‘infrastructure bill,’ i.e., the $1.3 trillion money pit.  Most of these Democrats recall what happened to their predecessors who voted for Obamacare back in 2009-2010, they went down in droves in the 2010 Mid-Term Elections as well as in 2012 (except for President Barack Hussein Obama), and again in the 2014 Mid-Term Elections.  Vote for it, losers, vote for it.  Speaking of the nonagenarian, addle-brained House speaker, she is also trying to get ‘bipartisan support’ for her election-theft bill, the so-called “John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” the one originally called the “For the People Act.”  This old coot believes she can steal all future elections if she can convince enough dummies in both parties to support this criminal crap.
  84. 2021 Wednesday W: Economic News– Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says it is ‘unclear as to what effect the COVID-19 delta variant will have on the U.S. and global economies.’  Next, retail sales for the month of July dropped by more than 1.1-percent due to COVID-19 lockdowns, restrictions, mandates, and fears.   
  85. 2021 Wednesday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– A new Rasmussen poll says that 70-percent of the American people believe violent crime in the country is getting out of control.
  86. 2021 Wednesday Y: Big Tech News– Although Twitter and other social media platforms controlled by the leftists still ban President Donald J. Trump, the Taliban has free run to spew hate and bile on Twitter.  Allah f**king Akbar! 
  87. 2021 Wednesday Z: National Security News– Customs and Border Protection confiscated a sizeable amount of FAKE Chi-Com-made DEA and FBI badges in Chicago.  Elsewhere, U.S. diplomats in Germany are the latest to be hit by the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome.’
  88. 2021 Wednesday AA: Human-Caused Disaster News– The Dixie Fire in northern California is out of control burning 54,000 acres within 24 hours.  The residents of Susanville are preparing to flee as the flames continue racing closer.  Meanwhile, Pacific Gas & Electric announced today that in anticipation of the out-of-control firestorm are cutting power to 50,000 homes and businesses.
  89. 2021 Wednesday BB: Natural Disasters News– The death toll from last week’s 7.2-magnitude earthquake that slammed Haiti continues to rise what with 2,000-plus deaths.
  90. 2021 Wednesday CC: War on Terror News-Terrorism News-Jihad News– Former U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott says that there are large numbers of known terrorists crossing the southern border into the United States.  Meanwhile, we learned that back in 2014, President Barack Hussein Obama freed the Taliban hoodlums overseeing the takeover of Afghanistan in exchange for disgraced U.S. Army deserter, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.  (Should have sent Sgt. Bergdahl to the gallows, Mr. “Forty-Fourth President.”
  91. 2021 Wednesday DD: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former First Lady Rosalyn Carter celebrates her 94th birthday.  Happy birthday, Madam First Lady!
  92. 2021 Wednesday EE: Fake News I– Governor “Killer” Cuomo’s brother Chris “Fraido” Cuomo says he wrote one of his older brother’s statements regarding the initial charges of sexual harassment and assault.  Fire the POS, CNN.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com stooge Mark Zuckerberg says that ‘Facebook removed 18 million COVID-19 misinformation posts.’  (Note- that means that anyone who shared a different view of this Chi-Com, lab-engineered disease, their posts and possibly their accounts got whacked).
  93. 2021 Wednesday FF: Arizona State News– Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, fighting to keep his seat, says he will financially penalize any school district that imposes a mask mandate on students.  
  94. 2021 Wednesday GG: California State News– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom says the Golden State will ‘gladly welcome all Afghan refugees’ (and hopefully get them registered to vote before the September 14, 2021, recall election).
  95. 2021 Wednesday HH: Florida State News– COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the Sunshine State thanks to the Biden regime’s internecine war to dump massive numbers of illegal aliens there so as to drive UP the numbers of cases.  In Orange County, wastewater treatment plants report an increase of 600-percent of COVID-19 detections in the water.  This is not because of the freedom these people enjoy but because of the dumping of hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants across the state in the dead of night.
  96. 2021 Wednesday II: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov reportedly is filing for his pension benefits.  Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is leading in the Democratic Party’s primary race according to new polls.
  97. 2021 Wednesday JJ: Texas State News– The Texas Supreme Court affirmed today that the ‘fugitive Democrats’ can undergo arrest as soon as the idiots return to the Lone Star State.
  98. 2021 Wednesday KK: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3587 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 09, 22, 38, 39, 45, and Mega 02.  Out of 83,101 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had five numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $7,732 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Golden Snack Shop in Carson, CA 90745 (2) Calamart in Sunnyvale, CA 94087 (3) Shell in Los Angeles, CA 90021 and (4) 7-Eleven in Chula Vista, CA 91911.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #863 with a jackpot of $274 million up for grabs: 35, 36, 51, 55, 61, and Power 26.  Out of 92,804 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,670.
  99. 2021 Wednesday LL:  The Wrap-Up– You know, mis amigos, I have worked more than my share of places across the country and all I can say is that in my estimation, I think that the Biden ‘whisperer’ in the ear of old Joe- Barack Hussein Obama- has now abandoned his proxy.  It appears that Joe is little more than a senile babe in the woods now, abandoned by all.  We have yet to even see Dr. Jill around anywhere, it is as if he is alone, forlorn, and abandoned and this is concerning, genuinely concerning.  My colleagues here have suggested that the time is NOW for the downfall of the United States, in much the same way as the Soviet Union imploded, so, too, are we, because our enemies have maneuvered us into this position through corrupting our elections and giving us the “Manchurian Candidate.”  The question is, will we allow our government to go after us or will we stand tall and fight back?  I will leave you with this: I know many, many Democrats and the ones who voted FOR Joe Biden now wish they had cast their votes for Trump.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it- there is still hope.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.
  100. 2022 Thursday:  Rep. Liz Cheney- a woman we lovingly have labeled “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney due to her obsessive-compulsive desire to destroy President Donald J. Trump- cannot read the writing on the wall.  The voters of Wyoming said, ‘NO MORE, go the hell away.’  At least that pathetic little piece of crap Adam Kinzinger from Illinois had sense enough NOT even to run for another term.  He knew he was going down months ago so he decided not to run for another term as he would have gone down by 30 points or more as did his associate.  The short Tik-Tok video Kinzinger released saying ‘it was not the end of my career (just not going to win re-election) and that at some point, I will be back.’  Sure.  If it makes you feel better, continue saying it.  As for Lyin’ Liz, at her farewell rally last night in Jackson, Wyoming, about 50 people listened to her compare herself to Abraham Lincoln.  Somehow, she believes she can return even though she was BLOWN OUT.  She believes she can somehow challenge President Trump in 2024 at best and at worst, defeat him by running third party.  Okay, if thinking this wets your panties, good for you.  We suspect, however, that unless she goes on MSNBC or CNN or perhaps even CNBC, she will disappear along with her POS father.  It’s people like her- and her father’s ‘stimulating campaign commercial’ that doomed her to the crapper- that make us wish we could take back the votes we gave him and W. back in 2000 and again in 2004.  Had the Democrats only run better candidates back then- better than Vice President Al Gore in 2000 and something radically different than ‘Lurch’ in 2004, we might not have languished under the military-industrial-political complex, but they did not.  Liz, take a bow and get the f**k out and take that evil f**king father of yours with you.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0926 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “A Plethora of Poppies.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The biggest online retailer of music- Apple-iTunes- released another archival Beach Boys release- “Live in Sacramento 1964”- on December 02, 2014, so as to prevent the Beach Boys and mostly Brian Wilson (although Mike Love figures in here, too) from losing copyrights on the material due to whack-a-doodle European copyright laws.  Thus we have 37 tunes resulting from two shows and some practice sessions from this legendary show on these two discs.  If you enjoyed the old Beach Boys album, “Beach Boys Concert”- which is a glorious live album for its day, you will most definitely enjoy this one.  We hope you will seek this one out and to make it part of your daily listening rotation- you will be glad you did.

[i] We began promoting the music of the Move- and of Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne- beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

[ii] We are not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of the Bee Gees but one day, we sure as heck will.  They will forever rank as one of the all-time great British bands.

[iii] We definitely look forward to promoting the music of Foreigner one of these days, perhaps in 2020?

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

[v] Many have long contended that President Barack Hussein Obama is an illegitimate president because of him not meeting the birth requirements.  Evidence suggests that he was indeed born in the East African nation of Kenya and that that fact nullified his time in office and his judicial picks- including TWO SCOTUS justices- among other things.  We believe that ‘President Obama’ should always have an asterisk placed next to his name in the history books.  It is interesting to note that his ‘Vice President’ Joseph R. Biden also is an illegitimate president having stolen the 2020 Presidential Election.

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[vii] The Rolling Stones did not appear at Woodstock for two reasons- Mick Jagger was in Australia filming Ned Kelly and Keith Richard’s girlfriend Anita Pallenberg gave birth to his son, Marlon, on this date.  However, compared to being shot one might think the Stones had been at Woodstock.  Can you imagine their performance?  It would have been amazing.

[viii] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[ix] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now:

[x] Here is the link: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xix] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xx] While we love OAN, we disagree with their final number.  You see, we said as far back as 2009 when the blog began that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number is closer to 75-100 million.  We must round them up, imprison them in camps in the middle of the Arizona desert or better yet, dump them on Wake Island and let them languish.

[xxi] Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, says that the Biden regime is using the Afghan mess to deflect from the disaster occurring down on the U.S.-Mexico border.

[xxii] Rep. Dan Meuser, R-PA 9th congressional district told Newsmax that the U.S. military left behind 158 Blackhawk helicopters.  Can you imagine?  Of course, the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and the Iranians are scooping them up.

229. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17, 2022

2018 Friday: Twenty-four hours after President Donald J. Trump revoked the security clearance of “former communist” Obama era CIA Director John Brennan, the ousted Deep State apparatchik penned an opinion piece in the New York Times entitled, “President Trump’s Claims of No Collusion are Hogwash.” What an angry POS.

  50. 2018 Friday: Twenty-four hours after President Donald J. Trump revoked the security clearance of “former communist” Obama era CIA Director John Brennan, the ousted Deep State apparatchik penned an opinion piece in the New York Times entitled, “President Trump’s Claims of No Collusion are Hogwash.” What an angry POS. Like a pit bull attacking another dog, this scumbag cannot let go of the Obama administration’s dastardly set-up of Trump and the people around him in order to destroy his presidency.  Meanwhile, the House Oversight Committee’s ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings demanded an ‘explanation’ from President Trump for revoking Brennan’s security clearance.  Still waiting, we think.
  51. 2019 Saturday: ISIS scumbags attack a wedding party in Kabul, Afghanistan, killing sixty-three people outright and injuring another 200-plus people. Folks, it is high time to begin capturing and stringing up EVERY remaining member of ISIS and leaving their bodies for the crows.
  52. 2020 Monday: Word is now out that New York City- under the watchful eye of Mayor Bill Di Blasio- pot-smoking, Marxist mayor- is on the brink of permanent decline thanks to the mismanagement of both Mayor Bill Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo- both Democrats. Currently, there are 13,177 vacant apartments in the city, a 177-percent increase over last year compiled with a drop of 23-percent of new lease signings.  In the past weekend of violence, thugs shot fifty-one people and four killed (76 people shot during the entire week) and no one seems to care.  Business owners boarded up their storefronts, residents fled to other states, and the duplicitous Democrats seem not to care.  Meanwhile, over the weekend, gangbanging ruffians shot sixty-four people and killed at least five in Chicago.  The time is NOW to charge these Blue State governors and Blue City mayors with DERELICTION OF DUTY.  They must face federal charges and prison time for their criminal neglect and felonious mismanagement of their locales.  Elsewhere, Nancy Pelosi calls for Congress to reconvene to pass an emergency bill to fund the USPS but not to help the tens of millions of Americans affected by the Chinese Bat Flu Virus.  Shame on her!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump- on the way out to stump across America while the Democrats commence their national convention via Zoom and Skype authorizes aid for Iowa, ravaged by violent storms over the previous week.    
  53. 2020 Monday A: Rush Limbaugh- on his radio show today- shared the news that many countries around the world are using hydroxychloroquine behind the scenes to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. He pointed out that the African nation of Uganda is a big-time user of hydroxychloroquine to fight endemic malaria. Here are their number of confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus: 1,500, 13 confirmed deaths, and 1,142 confirmed recoveries.  Leftist Democrats, what flipping more proof do you criminal scumbags require to know that Plaquenil is great for fighting this disease?  Enough is enough!  Give everyone hydroxychloroquine NOW!
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: At the Democratic Convention, here is the lineup for speakers for TONIGHT: former First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, Sen. Doug Jones, D-AL, Rep. Gwen Moore, D-WI, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-MS, Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-SC, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, D-MI, Gov. Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, D-NY, Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto, D-NV, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, former 2016 presidential candidate and Gov. John Kasich, OH, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman. What a lineup!  Interesting note: we heard through the grapevine that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is backing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat challenger- Shahid Buttar, another Democrat- in the November Elections.  Mr. Buttar is a Muslim lawyer, a person who graduated from Stanford Law School in 2003.  Boy, that takes some balls (for AOC, which is.  This is what Pelosi gets for giving the former Sandy Cortez 60 seconds to speak at the DNC Convention!  My-my!).
  55. 2020 Monday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 21,739,501 confirmed cases, +259,390, 776,241 confirmed deaths, +4,723, and 13,702,873 confirmed recoveries, +240,708. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,488,763 confirmed cases, UP by 51,751 new cases, 172,146 confirmed deaths, UP by 720 new deaths, and 2,763,139 confirmed recoveries, UP by 19,545 new recoveries.
  56. 2020 Monday D: COVID-19 Statistics 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: 628,031 confirmed cases, 11,242 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,042 confirmed cases, forty confirmed deaths, and 1,841 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 67,461 confirmed cases, 1,781 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 321,316 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 82,762 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

Let us look at one other country- Barbados, 182nd country on the list: 4,581 cases of the virus, 48 confirmed deaths and 4,409 confirmed recoveries. [viii]     
  62. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: Thanks to Joe Biden being the WORST president in U.S. history- even worse than foreign-born Barack Hussein Obama and the ‘peanut farmer’- DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,343.28, DOWN 282.12 points (-0.79%). Next, the NASDAQ: 14,656.18, DOWN 137.58 points (-0.93%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,448.08, DOWN 31.63 points (-0.71%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.04 per barrel, +0.05 (+0.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,787.90 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $23.65 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $994.40 per troy oz, +1.30 (+0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.22 per pound, +0.02 (+0.37%).

[xii]        
  63. 2021 Tuesday E: 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 $4.405 per gallon, $3.010 in Florida, $4.089 in Hawaii, and $3.904 in Washington state. [xiii] Let us look at one other location- Nevada: $4.062.  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- Cabo Verde: $5.363 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,652,985,232,767 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xv].  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 Taiwan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Hong Kong with $224 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.
  64. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The Navy SEAL who shot jihadist Osama bin Laden- Rob O’Neill- says that Joe Biden- aka the Antitrump- is a ‘disaster.’ “Doomed from the start”- so says a Special IG report- the plan of building a stable democracy in Afghanistan.  The Taliban, sounding like peaceniks promise peace in the country and women’s rights under the guiding light of a kind and loving (false) deity, Allah.  Sure, right, of course women are going to enjoy ‘rights.’  Meanwhile National Security Adviser to slobbering Joe Biden- Jake Sullivan- says the ‘Taliban has guaranteed the right of all those who wish to leave the country uncontested passage to the airport.’  The young adviser also says that the regime will ‘hold the Taliban accountable for any wrongdoing.’  Sure, Jake, sure.  He also made the astonishing claim that the regime planned for ‘all contingencies’ in withdrawing the military (even though they left thousands of Americans behind and thousands of fellow NATO troops).  The former ambassador to Kabul under President Barack Hussein Obama- a man who criticized President Donald J. Trump as much as he could- now says there are severe doubts as to the ‘mental fitness’ of the ‘commander in chief’ to hold the office he supposedly won on November 03, 2020.
  65. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must. Today is Day No. 147 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 53rd day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $443,797,664.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $250,306,854,912.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,656,444.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,565,444.  (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).
  66. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– As things continue worsening in Afghanistan, the Taliban is going door to door seeking Western allies as well as compiling lists of girls and women aged 12 to 45 so the fatigued veterans of the Taliban army can marry them, settle down, and have families when they are not busy lopping off heads. However, be glad because the Biden regime is going to probe Afghan deaths at the Kabul airport, you know, the ones that fell to their deaths clinging to the landing gear.  These poor people were so afraid that they threw common sense to the winds and clung to the C-130 cargo jets.  Some managed to affix themselves to the aircraft but died at the elevation due to lack of oxygen while others plummeted thousands of feet to crash on the ground.
  67. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Joe Biden is extending the mask mandate for all travel in the U.S. via airplanes, buses, and railroads until 2022.  As COVID-19 cases surge in Florida, additional school districts are defying “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ order on NO masks in schools.
  68. 2021 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $50.42 (2) AstraZeneca $59.35 (3) Johnson & Johnson $179.47 (4) BioNTech $366.27 (5) Moderna $401.86. As we say, IF you desire to know the reason for the PUSH-PUSH-PUSH to get the vaccines and now with talk of everyone having to undergo a third round of this crap, all one must do is to follow the money.  Politicians invest in BIG PHARMA, they invest their money there because the recipients who suffer adverse reactions cannot sue the companies associated with vaccines, it is as if they have a ‘get-out-of-jail-free card’ when it comes to dealing with costly lawsuits.  Who would not want to put money into stocks such as these?  We sure the heck are putting more money into the stocks of pharmaceutical companies manufacturing Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.   IF the Chi-Coms continue releasing one variant after another, the vaccine companies will continue making new boosters which the U.S. government will buy with taxpayer dollars so they can distribute them “FREE” to all Americans and across the world.  The drug makers will then donate money back to the Democrats in the ongoing money-go-round.  Like union dues and donations to Democrats, this is a tried-and-true way with which the Dems and their RINO allies reap in the big bucks. 
  69. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden News I– Apparently, a reporter asked Joe Biden on his 2010 comments on America’s duty to defend the Afghan people. His reply to them now is “F— that.”  Well, there you go, Joe.  Oh, it is interesting to note that Joe Biden is back at Camp David, ostensibly on vacation but we know the ‘Manchurian Candidate’ is undergoing his weekly tune-up.  Without such tune-ups, he would be unable to speak coherently to anyone for longer than a minute or two.  
  70. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Biden regime continues its implosion, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘America’s enemies are laughing at the U.S. over its abject failure’ in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, says of Joe Biden that he does NOT deserve to remain in office.  The White House reports that (much like our botched withdrawal from Iraq) the Taliban has obtained loads of U.S. military hardware and equipment including drones and Blackhawk helicopters (so says Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district) and other equipment which we all know will be wending its way to communist China, Russia, and Iran for evaluation.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.   Meanwhile, as drought conditions worsen in the western states, governors in the region are pushing Joe Biden to declare a disaster so FEMA can activate and begin providing help.  Finally, the regime is hinting it is going to give the ‘cold shoulder’ to former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
  71. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– We learned today that Rep. Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and a ‘cancel rent’ advocate own numerous rental properties and collected rents from all of them. How come you did not cancel rents for your clients, “Chrome Dome?”
  72. 2021 Tuesday N: Big Tech News– Senator Marco Rubio is urging Joe Biden to ban TikTok following the Chi-Coms taking a major stake in the company.
  73. 2021 Tuesday O: New York State News– New Yorkers are growing angrier with both the mayor of the BIG APPLE and the soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov. First, 52-percent of New Yorkers want to see Governor Cuomo to face criminal charges while Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio faces lawsuits over his imposition of vaccine passports for all people seeking to dine indoors or to patronize other indoor businesses.  “No shot, no proof, no service” is the order of the day (unless, of course, you are a Christian baker and a couple of hardcore homos demand you bake them a ‘wedding cake’).  One shot won’t be enough, for a customer to partake of the ‘delights’ of New York City, a customer must be fully vaccinated and when boosters arrive, one must have proof of full vaccination.  Of course, this is not going over well with residents of the Big Apple- especially black, brown, and other minorities who view the government with suspicion and the lawsuits slamming into “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio are CIVIL RIGHTS lawsuits.  You see, “Killer” Cuomo and “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio through their harsh orders are turning blacks, browns, and others into second-class citizens.
  74. 2021 Tuesday P: Texas State News– Fully-vaccinated Lone Star State Governor Greg Abbot, GOP, tested positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu although he is asymptomatic and will undergo self-imposed quarantine for 1-2 weeks. Meanwhile, the state government is calling for mortuary trailers for dispatch to the southern border amid the illegal alien-caused growing COVID-19 crisis befalling the state.   
  75. 2021 Tuesday Q: Sports News I– The comeback of Tim Tebow ends as the Jacksonville Jaguars cut him loose. In other sports news, NFL great quarterback Brett Favre says parents should not permit their kids to play tackle football until age 14.
  76. 2021 Tuesday R: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1686 what with a $242 million jackpot on the line: 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24. 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24.  Stick around and discover the winners… Out of 97,147 winning tickets, the highest winners were 67 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $408 apiece.
  77. 2021 Tuesday S: Amigos, I am afraid that the Antitrump is leaving Americans behind in Afghanistan while flying jihadis interlaced with Afghan refugees into the U.S. to conduct terror attacks, attacks the bogus regime will lay at the feet of WHITE SUPREMACISTS. Once they tar and feather white folks with whatever jihadist attacks occur here, instead of going after the Islamists themselves, they will go after white people like Hitler and the Nazis went after the Jews.  Most all of us agree that the people behind Joe Biden are using white people as their ‘Jews,’ isolate and attack them all the while turning the country into a Third World pisser.  Look, I am a Latino- “America’s favorite Cholo”- and I don’t want the country overrun with millions of Third World riffraff.  Unlike many, I am not afraid to say this, in fact, I will boldly proclaim it.  Joe has got to go; President Trump must return to the White House now.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.
  78. 2022 Wednesday: Looks like Liz Cheney went down in smoking defeat.  Good.  The sooner these ‘Republocrats’ are vanquished, the sooner we can reclaim America and restore law and order.  Oh, the RINOs are crying, oh, the Democrats sniveling, but they did not turn out to save her sorry ass as she was begging them.           Let me say something about Alaska’s election system, the ‘ranked choice voting.’  What a bunch of bullshit, much like California’s corrupt ‘top two vote-getters’ facing off in the general.  Anything that is not one U.S. citizen one vote is bogus, corrupt, and must go.  We must vote on Election Day.  Paper ballots.  NO skullduggery.  Absentee ballots must come postmarked no later than Election Day.  I mean, does the IRS allow 2, 3, 4, or more weeks for returns to come in past April 15?  Nope. Besides- as in California thanks to our corrupt system- the American Independent Party, the Libertarian Party, the Peace and Freedom Party, and the Green Party are NEVER on the general election ballot.  Why aren’t they launching all sorts of lawsuits and taking this crap up to the U.S. Supreme Court and getting this corrupt, Democrat-favoring system tossed on the garbage heap?  I’m telling you.  Let us know what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

228. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, AUGUST 16, 2022

2020 Sunday B: The Democrats continue undergoing meltdowns as they blast the Trump administration for proposing cuts to the U.S. Postal Service. They want more money going to the USPS so it can ‘manage the increase in mail-in ballots.’ You know, there was a time when the Democrats attempted to conceal their election-stealing attempts whereas now, they could give a hoot.

Truman so famously said, “The buck stops here.”  Next, Politico stuck a journalistic dagger into the neck of dictator Joe Biden when they said his ‘chip on his shoulder’ is what caused the debacle the world is watching in Afghanistan as he would NOT listen to his generals.  In other Afghan-related news, at least seven desperate people are dead from falling several thousand feet from outbound aircraft at the Kabul airport.  Meanwhile, outside the White House, Afghan Americans are protesting the White House usurper by shouting, “THEY’RE KILLING OUR PEOPLE!”
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– today is Day No. 146 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 52 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Here are the numbers for illegal aliens and the cost of caring for them as provided by OAN.  First, the cost this day alone is: $652,723,151.  Next, here is the appalling cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country for just this year: $248,821,415,836.  Imagine the good that money could do for the American people and not the flotsam and jetsam of the Third World?  Next, here are the numbers of illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,555,525.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers for all time: 36,555,525.  Horrifying, simply horrifying.  (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- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks).

  71. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– As the Taliban continues accumulating and securing power across Afghanistan, Taliban thugs both inside and outside the empty U.S. embassy are chanting, “Death to America, death to America, death to America.”  Nice they love us so much.  Meanwhile, at the airport in Kabul, U.S. troops in two difference incidents shoot dead a pair of Taliban thugs.  Chaos at the airport has put a hold on exit flights.  As the catastrophe unfolds, dictator Joe Biden says he stands by his decision ‘to flee Afghanistan and to leave the people to the mercies of the Taliban.’  Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that this is “Saigon on steroids.”
  72. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– today Health experts announced that ‘herd immunity may never be achieved with COVID-19.’ Meanwhile, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the American people must ‘set aside personal liberties so we can join forces to do battle with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’ (It is ALWAYS, we must surrender our God-given personal liberties to climb aboard the BIG GOVERNMENT train).
  73. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– An Indiana man found himself in the intensive care unit of his city after contracting flesh-eating bacteria following the consumption of raw oysters.  (Folks, we gave up eating raw oysters long ago and would recommend that everyone else do the same thing.  Besides, they do not do what people believe they do, it is all in the mind).
  74. 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Harvard University and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, medical professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff told Greg Kelly on Newsmax over the weekend that Joe Biden’s demand for vaccine mandates creates distrust of the vaccines in people who have already had the disease.  Dr. Kulldorff says it must stop.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Dr. Francis Collins- Director of National Institute of Health- says that ‘unvaccinated Americans pose more problems for the United States than do the millions of illegal aliens flooding into the country.’  What a party apparatchik.  In Colorado on the first day of school, masks and law enforcement officers are all over the place.  Speaking of schools and COVID-19, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that the feds ‘cannot pay off school superintendents’ to follow the regime’s orders.  Regarding Florida, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that ‘parents cannot sue over the mask ban’ he put into place with an executive order.

  76. 2021 Monday N: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Arizona announces that the week of August 22, 2021, is when they will release the preliminary report on the election fraud and corruption that went on in the Copper State surrounding the November 2020 Elections.  Meanwhile, as the disastrous Biden regime stumbles about like a punch-drunk boxer, we hope that more states will begin audits of the 2020 Elections because this disastrous mess cannot continue much longer.  Yes, we do miss President Donald J. Trump and he must return to the White House.  Those involved in the rampant election fraud and corruption must go to prison if not to the gallows for their crimes and perfidy.  There are many, many traitors who must pay the price for their betrayal, their disloyalty, and their treachery.  Chef Hector Santanamos Del Soto.
  77. 2021 Monday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Now that Joe Biden has sold out the Afghan people to the Taliban and- even worse– to the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump asks the question: ‘who will Joe Biden sell out next?’  The President also slammed the usurper in the White House for his ‘grossly incompetent’ abandonment of Afghanistan to the jihadists. 
  78. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden News I– Afghan Americans arrived outside the White House over the past weekend protesting the abandonment of their country to the cruel jihadist hoodlums.  Speaking of senile Joe Biden, chief pollster at the Trafalgar Group, Robert Cahaly- says that ‘Joe Biden is more popular than his policies.’  All day, the White House said that Joe Biden was ‘going to address the American people’ on the mess in Afghanistan.  Finally, he did and did what all of us knew he would: blame President Donald J. Trump and the Afghan people for being losers.  Wow.  The Deputy National Security Adviser Jonathan Finer says there will be ‘grave consequences for the Taliban if the riffraff interfere in the U.S. withdrawal from Kabul and across Afghanistan.’  Even worse for Joe Biden is his reluctance to give American citizens priority in the evacuation out of the destabilized Central Asian country.
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. State Department said earlier today that ALL U.S. embassy staff is at the airport in Kabul but thanks to the pandemonium occurring there, the U.S. authorities on the ground have suspended outbound flights until control can be reestablished.   Meanwhile, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley is defending his misguided assessment as to the strength of the Taliban.  (Note- Gen. Milley, you sound like the Nazis who underestimated Russian troop strength in late 1941 through 1942.  YOU must resign, sir.  NOW).  In other Biden regime news, Joe says the USDA is going to permanently increase food stamp benefits, i.e., SNAP benefits, because there are millions of foreign invaders who need to eat.  In other Biden regime news, the Bidenistas are filing a challenge to a recent court order to revive President Donald J. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Come on, Joe, we have enough illegal aliens in the country.  Can’t we stop already? 
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News I– As things continue deteriorating in Afghanistan, Vice President Mike Pence places the blame for the calamity unfolding there squarely atop the culprit responsible: drooling Joe Biden.  Former Army General (and CIA Director) David H. Petraeus says that ‘no good can come from the precipitous abandonment of Kabul to the Islamists.’  Security experts are now saying that ‘another 9-11-style attack is only a matter of time’ (especially with wide-open borders).  As things worsen in Kabul, the Republican Party is demanding the resignations of Joe Biden, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.  (Speaking of ‘Cryin’ Chuck,’ he is outraged over the need to crack down on fake China Virus vaccine cards.  Chuck- f**k you).
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News II– An angry House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is demanding that the House of Representatives launch a probe into the abrupt collapse of Afghanistan.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, says that ‘Joe Biden takes the final blame for the collapse of Afghanistan.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s arrogance led to the turmoil in Afghanistan.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell is accusing the Biden regime of outing U.S. intelligence officers on Twitter.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Political News III– Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies told Newsmax that Joe Biden may be unable to control the amount of Afghan refugees who will try to enter our country.  Next, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should resign from office over the disaster in Afghanistan.’   U.S. GOP Senate campaign Chairman Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, is floating the idea that the time is now to use the 25th Amendment to get enfeebled old Joe Biden out of the White House ASAP.  Former National Security Adviser to President Donald J. Trump- H.R. McMaster- says that ‘Joe Biden’s humanitarian disaster will equate with increased security risks for the United States.’  Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Joe Biden is the most incompetent commander-in-chief in the past forty years’ (the other one being President Jimmy Carter).   (Note- Joe Biden claims he will not repeat the past mistakes made by three other presidents in Afghanistan).   
  83. 2021 Monday U: Political News IV– Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, says that ‘firings must occur surrounding the debacle in Afghanistan.’  Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says that ‘Joe Biden ignored warnings regarding Afghanistan and now owns the disaster.’  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, told Greg Kelly on Newsmax that the ‘administration had NO plan with which to evacuate our embassy or the people who fought alongside us in the Central Asian hellhole.’  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says ‘we should have maintained a presence at Baghram Air Base instead of leaving it to the enemy.’  Both agree that WHEN we have to return to the ‘graveyard of empires,’ the Taliban will be better armed with U.S. abandoned weapons of all types.’
  84. 2021 Monday V: Miscellaneous News I– The federal government is giving Florida $500 million to help with the manatee crisis.  Meanwhile, the U.S. National Park Service is making masks mandatory at all parks in the U.S.
  85. 2021 Monday W: Business News– The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration- the NHTSA for short- is probing issues regarding autopilot in Tesla motor vehicles.
  86. 2021 Monday X: Mass Shootings News– It appears to have been a quiet weekend in Chicago what with eight dead and fifty-six injured in shootings across the Windy City.
  87. 2021 Monday Y: Big Tech News– Google whistleblower Scott Voorhies says that his employer changed its algorithms to unfairly target President Donald J. Trump throughout 2020.  To keep unwelcome news trending for President Trump, they would attach old stories to new ones to keep them pushed up to the front of the pack.  Elsewhere, T-Mobile is probing claims that hackers ripped off the data of 100 million users.
  88. 2021 Monday Z: Environmental News I– As we have said for close to a decade now, the Sun is the driver of all climate change, NOT CO2.  Well, a new study confirms that but observe this: solar activity- sunspots, solar flares, and solar winds- ebbs and flows.  When there is more activity, the entire Solar System warms up and when there is less, it cools down.  IF you get rid of ALL carbon dioxide emissions, plants will wither and die, oxygen production will fall off, and eventually, you end up with a planet like Mars.  All one must do to learn the truth is to find unbiased university professors willing to teach truthful geography classes and not this dumb-ass Marxist ‘global warming’ bulls**t dimwits such as AOC, Al Gore, and Greta Thunberg run around squealing and crying about.  Wake up, dummies.
  89. 2021 Monday AA: Natural Disasters News– Like California, wildfires are raging across Spain.  Meanwhile, one person died over the weekend as a party boat sailing the calm waters of Lake Conroe in the Texas town of Conroe flipped over when a freak storm crashed into the ship.  The two-story craft had fifty-three people aboard when the mishap occurred, and an older man died at the hospital following injuries sustained in the accident.
  90. 2021 Monday BB: California State News– As Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom continues sobbing that the “GOP is trying to get me in the recall election,’ today, we learned that copious quantities of bond money set aside to build water infrastructure in the Golden State is just sitting there, unused.  Damn it, Gov. Newsom, if you even cared about your job, get work underway NOW on the Sacramento Delta diversion project that will safely send northern California water south to the farmers and the citizens of the state.  Loser.  Regarding “Nazi” Newsom, a new poll (supposedly) claims Golden State voters find themselves split in the recall effort to remove the WORST governor in all fifty states and five territories.
  91. 2021 Monday CC: Nevada State News– Former Republican Silver State Attorney General Adam Laxalt has filed papers to compete against sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, D-NV, for the seat in November 2022.  
  92. 2021 Monday DD: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov (who says his mother was the one who imbued his scandalous behavior into him when he was a youngster) says, “I could have beaten impeachment.”  Then why are you leaving, you corrupt POS?  Even as Cuomo is in the process of exiting the governor’s office, he issued a mandate today: ALL Empire State health care professionals MUST undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Wow.  What a loser.
  93. 2021 Monday EE: Oklahoma State News– Patriotic Oklahomans demonstrated at their state capital over the weekend, protesting the Chi-Vi vaccine and mask mandates government is trying to foist onto them. 
  94. 2021 Monday FF: Texas State News– A Texas Supreme Court justice issues a temporary injunction against Lone Star State Democrats seeking to disobey Governor Greg Abbott’s ban on mask mandates in the schools and in public life.  Meanwhile, Texans will soon be able to open carry firearms without permits.
  95. 2021 Monday GG: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed actor Johnny Depp says that Hollywood is ‘boycotting me.’
  96. 2021 Monday HH: The Wrap Up– Prophesy- how soon will we see landing craft doors slamming down on Taiwanese beaches, the subjugation of Ukraine, Islamism spreading like wildfire throughout all of Central Asia, and Cuban and Venezuelan hegemony dispersing through all of Latin America?  With the Antitrump in the White House, we suspect it will begin soon… El Chilote predicts this on this day…
  97. 2022 Tuesday: The plot against President Donald J. Trump continues to grow by the day.  I would like to ask the readers of our blog, did you ever think- since we began back in 2009 writing for the Chi-Com blog site, Choseit.com, that we would have the misfortune of seeing the collapse of our country into Venezuela-style socialism?  Oh, it might not be that way at the moment, folks, but if we do not continue kicking butt from today onward and into 2024, it will be here before you know it.  You folks in Alaska- send Senator Lisa Murkowski packing and elect Kelly Tshibaka and Sarah Palin.  You folks in Wyoming, send that godawful witch “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney packing.  It is time to reclaim our country and to continue reclaiming it.  It’s that or troubled times for all of us but only if we allow it.  I seriously doubt my fellow Americans will permit this to befall our wonderful country.  We know we won’t.  Tell me what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0924 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “You Forgot My Tip.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Live long enough and eventually, one will hear every last lick recorded by a veteran band which is why we have “The Big Beat 1963,” a ‘compilation album’ of sorts that came out on December 17, 2013.  Truly more of a Brian Wilson album seeing as how the compilations are his, the album features tracks he wrote prior to the Beach Boys recorded by other up-and-coming pop bands and artists at the time.  According to the source for everything- world-famous Wikipedia- the album was released to ‘keep up with European copyright laws’ that said if you didn’t release something by such and such a date, one’s copyright on the material could be lost.  Thus, we have “The Big Beat 1963,” an album containing 22 heretofore unreleased tracks.  We hope you seek this one out and add it to your growing list of recording artists.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we have.  Who knows?  You might even be able to find it at your local library.

215. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 03, 2022

2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia. Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?

Secretary-General Ban Kyi-Moon to call out the Israelis.  Oh, STFU, Mr. Secretary-General.
  52. 2015 Monday: To reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 32-percent of the 2005 levels, President Barack Obama[vii] proposes the Clean Power Act, which is more stringent than the plan offered by the Environmental Protection Agency by 30-percent.  Meanwhile, in the northern Syrian city of Ariha in Idlib Governorate, citizens going about their business get something more than they planned when a Syrian warplane crashes into a populated area.  At least 37 people lose their lives while numerous others suffer injuries of one degree or another.
  53. 2016 Wednesday: U.S. Justice Department officials raised questions regarding President Barack Obama’s cash payments to Iran.  Meanwhile, the parliament in Nepal elects a former Maoist rebel, Pushpa Kemal Dahal, aka Prachanda (his rebel name) to be its next prime minister.  Next, the North Koreans as feisty as ever launch two medium-range missiles.  The first blows up while parts of the second come down in Japanese territorial waters leading to words between the two countries.
  54. 2017 Thursday: The enslaved peoples of Iran re-elect their dictator, “President” Hassan Rouhani, to a second term.  Meanwhile, in the first sentencing of its kind, Massachusetts woman Michelle Carter receives a prison sentence of 2.5 years for having urged her boyfriend to commit suicide.  The young man continually talked about ending his life and so she said ‘go ahead’ in some text messages that would come back to bite her on the ass.
  55. 2018 Friday: Scumbag reporter Carl Bernstein says that ‘the Trump presidency is worse than Watergate.’  Gee whiz, Mr. Bernstein, why don’t you STFU?  Meanwhile, famed Israeli filmmaker and director Moshe Mizrahi dies at age 86.  Elsewhere, when queried by reporters as to when North Korea will commence denuclearization of their country, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘ultimately, they will be the ones to decide the timeline.’ 
  56. 2019 Saturday:  At a Wal-Mart in El Paso, Texas, a terrorist thug seeks out Mexicans to murder and in this heinous act, the POS kills 22 and injures another 24.  Meanwhile that night in Dayton, Ohio, another POS shooter sets out to kill people and in so doing takes the lives of nine and wounds another 27 at a pair of bars before police shoot him dead in the street.
  57. 2020 Monday:  President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order today in which, he forbids American companies (Google comes to mind as does Microsoft and numerous other big tech firms) from hiring foreign scab workers to displace higher-paid American workers.  Far too often in today’s America, American firms force American workers to train foreign workers to do their jobs and then send them packing.  This is not right and what the president did today is amazing.  NO more displacing Americans with foreign scabs.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the stats are in for shootings in Chicago over the weekend: at least 33 people shot, 9 slain- including a 9-year-old boy and when compared to last July in Chicago, murders in the Windy City in July are up 139-percent.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at this point in time, there have been more shootings than ALL of last year’s combined.  What the hell is up with these BIG BLUE CITIES?  Where the hell are Black Lives Matter, you know, the Marxist, racist organization?  We thought black lives ‘matter?’  Apparently not.
  58. 2020 Monday A: President Donald J. Trump gave Chi-Com ‘video’ (spying) ap Tik-Tok until September 15 of this year to allow Microsoft to buy the intelligence gathering platform or to get out of the United States.  Boot them out ASAP!  Meanwhile, Illinois state Representative La Shawn ford, Democrat, calls to abolish teaching history in schools across the state as- according to him- it ‘leads to white privilege and a racist society.’  Will it ever stop?

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 312,055 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 92,023 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[x]

[xv]        
  67. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.384 per gallon, $3.007 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.862 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Maryland: $3.098.  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- Aruba: $4.852 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,599,366,342,829 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging 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 Kuwait, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Sweden with $47 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 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 133 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the flaming fiasco down along the U.S.-Mexico border and her 39th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says that Joe Biden “MUST fire” “Kooky Kamala” because she has no clue as to what the f**k she is doing.  Elsewhere, Grant Stinchfield reported on Newsmax this evening that the mayor of McAllen, Texas, Javier Villalobos, has declared a disaster as they are being overrun by thousands of illegal aliens with no end in sight.
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Germany has set a trial date for a 100-year-old Nazi death camp guard.   Next, the Chi-Coms are lashing out angrily at the Republican Party following the release of their report on the origins and spread of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Oh, boohoo, Chi-Coms, shut the hell up.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their attack on the GOP, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th CD, says the Chi-Coms’ wailing and sniveling over the recent report is further proof of their duplicity in the crime of the century- unleashing the Chi-Vi on the world.  Rep. McCaul said it is ‘the worst cover-up in human history.’  No wonder the Beijing bullies are upset.  Speaking of the communists, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, has once again called for moving the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics out of the authoritarian country and somewhere else to a more deserving country.   Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says that the United States ‘must cut off communist China completely.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Saudi foreign ministry has suggested that it won’t take part in the Abraham Accords.  Well, screw them.  Next, South Korea reports that the North Koreans want sanctions eased for them to return to direct talks with the United States.  Moving on, the Lebanese president is calling for an investigation into the Beirut blast that leveled much of the city a year ago tomorrow.  At least 204 people lost their lives while another 6,500 suffering injuries of varying degrees.  Tens of thousands more were made homeless in the space of a second.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke with the Afghan president to see about ‘hastening along the peace negotiations with the Taliban.’  Mr. Secretary, the Taliban is overrunning the country, sir, how about helping them with air support?
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The United States is donating another 110 million doses of the Chi-Com Virus vaccine abroad.  Hopefully, it’s the Johnson & Johnson crap.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Florida’s schools have quickly rescinded their mask mandates for the upcoming school year after ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis threatened their funding.  NO MASKS for kids!  In fact, Governor Pete Ricketts, R-NE, says that ‘mask mandates and lockdowns are counterproductive.’     
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Elsewhere, scientific journal writer Peter Hotez says that ‘questioning Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci should be labeled a “HATE CRIME.”  Interesting note: Professor Hotez has received funding from Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.’  Man, the fruit does not fall far from the pestilent stink-tree.
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former President Barack Hussein Obama ripped into the ‘Republican fog’ surrounding voting rights in this country.  President Donald J. Trump was highlighting a new forensic report that shows that Joe Biden received more than 8 million fraudulent votes in last year’s presidential election.
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden News I– Enfeebled Joe Biden believes that putting pressure on U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer to retire would harm the nation’s highest court and would politicize it.  Of course, the Democratic-Socialists reacted to this statement in the same way that Dracula would to a Crucifix and a vial of Holy Water. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new report regarding the Biden regime says that federal agencies do extraordinarily little to protect the data of U.S. citizens from being hacked by foreign adversaries. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– The Democrats are at war with one another and the division within their hardcore-left-of-center party continues to grow.  Democrats are screeching and wailing over the end of the evictions moratorium which leads the rest of us to ask a scathing question of the liberal losers: YOU were giving people an extra 300 smackers on top of their unemployment so where the f**k did it go?  They weren’t paying their rent with the extra $1,200 per month.  This is crazy, landlords have bills, too, as do the people they hire to do the electrical work, the plumbing work, the reclamation work should the tenants to whom they have given housing trashed it.  Many people invest in rental properties to pay the bills and now, the Democrats are destroying that segment of the American economy along with numerous others.  Shame on them.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News II– Republican National Committee Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that for Donald J. Trump to win in 2024, Republicans must win in 2022.  Next, many people now believe that the reason as to WHY New York AG Leticia James came out and trashed her boss, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov by listing his crimes as disgraced FBI Director James “Criminal” Comey did Hillary Rodham Clinton back in 2016 is that she wants to cripple him so she can run for his job and possibly win in 2022.  Now, that’s devious.  Still, the Albany County D.A. is now investigating Governor Cuomo so maybe someone else is going to do the dirty work for A.G. James.
  78. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney says that the Department of Justice ordering the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to the cretins in the U.S. Congress is occurring sans any evidence of wrongdoing.   Next, that crackpot scarecrow loser in the U.S. Senate- Elizabeth Warren, DS-MA,- says that ‘GOP voting laws are somehow connected to abortion.’  Say the flip what?  This woman is an angry loser.  Elsewhere, Governor J.B. Pritzker, DS-IL, says he is going to ‘enforce background checks on private gun sales.’  You should have been doing that already.  Moving on, the U.S. Senate voted to award ‘gold medals’ to the Capitol Hill cops who were at the Capitol on January 06, 2021.  What a load of crap.
  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News IV– Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax lambasted the 18 Republicans who eagerly signed onto the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Again, here they are: Roy Blunt, R-MO; Richard Burr, R-NC; Shelley Moore Capito, R-WV; Bill Cassidy, R-LA; Mike Crapo; R-ID, James Risch, R-ID; Thom Tillis; R-NC; Todd Young, R-IN; Mike Rounds, R-SD; John Hoeven, R-ND, Kevin Cramer, R-ND; Lisa Murkowski, R-AK; Rob Portman, R-OH; Mitt Romney, R-UT; Susan Collins, R-ME; Chuck Grassley, R-IA; Lindsey Graham, R-SC; and “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY.  Here is some more of the crap contained within the ‘infrastructure bill’- $16.3 billion for ‘renewable energy’ program; $250 million for invasive plant elimination (how about for invasive human beings’ elimination, i.e., ILLEGAL ALIENS?), and $10 million per year for Motor Vehicle per-mile user fee program.  So now, the American people will be taxed per mile by local, state, and federal government?  There will be a new industry just as there is now with the manufacturing of vaccination ID cards, one in which, odometers will be reset and reset. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News V– Tucker Carlson reported tonight from Budapest, Hungary, that the New York Times- the so-called ‘paper of record’- received millions of dollars from communist China to shill for the thugs in Beijing.  Islands that belong to Japan, they claimed belonged to the Chi-Coms as well as did everything to trash anyone who said that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was ‘xenophobic,’ a ‘racist,’ and/or a ‘bigot.’  Mr. Carlson said that the New York Times was not the only ‘news outlet’ to take Chi-Com yuan and then lie their asses off about anything their Beijing masters ordered them to do.  Wow.  Hence, ‘Chi-Coms good, Wuhan lab ‘innocent,’ and Donald J. Trump a ‘big, fat, evil racist.’  What a load of crap.
  81. 2021 Tuesday S: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee finally is seeking to repeal the 2002 use of military force in Iraq powers they gave to President George W. Bush.  Interested observers ask what took you so long to do this?  You should never have bestowed those powers on President Bush.  The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes, however, that the Deep State forced Bush’s hand into invading Iraq so everyone could rake in lots of bucks while then using the exact same war powers act to trash Bush #43.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: Business News– In various parts of the United States, McDonalds Restaurants will require both employees and customers to mask up or to go across the street to Burger King.   Restaurants in New York City are going to require that ALL customers- with the blessings of outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio- to show proof of vaccination, i.e., show their papers, otherwise, they cannot enter, sit down, and eat.  It would appear that the government is going to have private businesses do their dirty work just as they require employers to deduct payroll taxes from their workers’ salaries and then hand them over to government apparatchiks.  Well, there will always be restaurants that welcome all diners so it is important that we share names and locations in the same ways that hoboes of old shared whose house would provide one a meal and which house would not.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Special Election News– Tonight in the GOP primary race in Ohio’s 15th CD in a race to fill the vacant seat of former Rep. Steve Stivers, Donald J. Trump-backed candidate Mike Carey won big time.  Meanwhile, on the Democratic side of the aisle, state Rep. Allison Russo was projected to win the Democratic nomination.  The general election will be this November.  And they say Trump-backed candidates can’t win.  You win some, you lose some and Barack Hussein Obama has lost almost every endorsement he ever made- “Loser” with a capital “L.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– New York Attorney General Leticia James released the results of the probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and none of it looked good.  She would not commit to prosecuting the immoral chief executive and left it for others to do.  New York state Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat, said today “NO one is above the law.”  Later in the day, Joe Biden called for the Empire State governor to ‘step down’ for his reprobate activities as did House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.   Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st CD, called for the ‘immediate arrest’ of the immoral governor on grounds of criminal sexual harassment.  Good.  Lock him up.
  85. 2021 Tuesday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– However, Joe Biden is so out of it that he did not realize that as he was calling on his fellow Democratic-Socialist to step down, he opened the door for others to demand Mr. Biden step down due to his LONG HISTORY of groping, grabbing, smooching, rubbing, and saying all sorts of suggestive and disturbing things.  What is clear, too, is that AG James lacks the balls to pursue her boss, Governor “Killer” Cuomo.   Elsewhere, Missouri Governor Mike Parson has officially pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey for their ‘gun crimes convictions’ of last year.  Excellent.
  86. 2021 Tuesday X: Mass Shootings News– Two employees were wounded in a warehouse shooting in Tennessee.  Cops responding on scene shot the shooter.  Elsewhere, after some shots were fired outside the Pentagon, the entire facility went on lockdown.  It seems the bravest of the brave had to cower in fear inside the walls of America’s defense epicenter.   Apparently, a law enforcement officer may have lost his life in the incident.  Jihad?  White Supremacism?  Black Lives Matter?  Angry lover?  We don’t know.
  87. 2021 Tuesday Y: Big Tech News– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, slams YouTube for its censorship of free speech and urges users to find alternative sites to share their views.
  88. 2021 Tuesday Z: California State News– Backers of Recall Governor Gavin Newsom are seeking to block language on the upcoming recall ballot that the effort to cleanse California of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is a ‘power grab by the GOP.  Governor Newsom, people from across the political spectrum are banding together to get YOU out of office just as they did with Governor Gray Davis, another corrupt Democrat governor.
  89. 2021 Tuesday AA: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1682 what with a $179 million jackpot on the line: 01, 09, 17, 27, 34, and Mega 24.  Out of 73,454 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,091,799.  The winning ticket was sold at the Cortesia Market in Pacoima, CA 91331.
  90. 2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.  Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia.  Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?  Anything is indeed possible in this world and some such as my family and me see signs of the End Times on the horizon.  One cannot make this stuff up.  No, all one need do is to read the Holy Bible.  Still, after all the suffering, the death, and the destruction, we will win.  That is the promise of GOD.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilte” De Soto.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys released their next live album, “Songs from Here and Back,” a special release album that came out on May 15, 2006, one that came out from Hallmark for two months back in the day.  This is rather a hodgepodge of tunes, most of the live ones from 1989- two from back in 1974- as well as three solo studio tunes, one from Brian Wilson, one from Mike Love, and one from Alan Jardine.  You get the lineup back in 1989- Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, and Alan Jardine- plus the longtime Beach Boys backup band, the one that provides the background on the road.  The two from 1974 feature Dennis Wilson and Ricky Fataar in the mix while the solo studio recordings feature a variety of accompanying musicians.  IF you can find this one, it’s a worthy addition to one’s collection and if you can’t, well, it is what it is.  Enjoy.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the other bands with which York played like the Bees, the Sir Douglas Quintet, the Museums, CRY, Gene Clark’s solo band, and Carla Olson.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iv] When we begin promoting American bands again, we will be sure to include the Stray Cats as well as the group’s individual members.  We hope you will remain alert for the day we do.

[v] 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, Wings, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We began promoting the music of Love, the famed Los Angeles, California, rock band on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  Please seek out the music of this awesome band.  This group was among the best of the 1960s.

[vii] 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.

  22. 1945 Saturday: A U.S. Army bomber crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building in New York City, killing 14 people and injuring many more.  Meanwhile, the Senate voted 89-2 ratifying the United Nations Charter.

  45. 2011 Thursday: Astronomers identify a Trojan asteroid orbiting on the same path as the Earth around the Sun; it poses no danger to Earth because it sits in a gravitational ‘sweet spot’.  Meanwhile, as the Obama administration continues its fight to get the debt ceiling raised so it can continue its out-of-control spending spree, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, RINO-OH, puts the kibosh on a vote on the floor to do just that.  He says, ‘maybe tomorrow.’  Democrats are going berserk.

  51. 2017 Friday:  In the U.S. Senate, the GOP attempted to repeal Obamacare via a ‘skinny vote’ yet Sen. John McCain, a Republican, joins the Democrats to vote the measure down, final vote 51-49.  What a POS.  Barack Hussein Obama[ix] beat Sen. McCain like an old drum on Election Day in 2016, belittled him over the years, and yet, the old war horse- hating Donald Trump as much as he does- voted to keep the signature legislation of his political enemy.  Damned flipping RINOS!  Meanwhile, President Trump appoints General John Kelly his new chief-of-staff. [x]  
  52. 2018 Saturday: Having burnt more than 80,000 acres in its path, the out-of-control Carr Fire reaches Redding, California, claiming at least 5 lives, injuring countless others, and destroying numerous properties.  The liberal Democrats screech “GLOBAL WARMING!” yet everyone knows it is poor forest management as stipulated by the Democratic Party as well as their loathness about building dams and constructing water reclamation projects.
  53. 2019 Sunday: The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is outed as the first guest editor at the United Kingdom version of Vogue Magazine, the first guest in 103 years.  She would bear partial responsibility with her husband, Prince Harry, for damaging the British Royal Family.  That is what you get when you marry an American skank.
  54. 2020 Tuesday: Much to the delight of their uber-left base, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee overseeing ‘oversight’ on the Dept. of Justice rip U.S. Attorney-General Bill Barr a new one by asking questions and then disallowing the AG to answer them properly.  The amount of political grandstanding was absolutely horrible but then, those are the Democratic-Socialists who are destroying our country.  GOP committee members did their best to even the score but that becomes impossible when there are more, angry, hateful Dems on the committee than Republicans.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s Prevagen must be working because after giving a speech, he even answered some questions, going off-script several times but not quite as much as we are generally used to seeing so either his handlers were putting in answers to pre-asked questions or the former vice president had a brief moment of lucidity.  He promised to make his VP choice known next week.
  55. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 16,660,138 confirmed cases, UP by 263,184 cases, 658,813 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,911 deaths, and 9,699,116 confirmed recoveries, UP by 186,555 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,426,281 confirmed cases, UP by 58,202 new cases, 151,374 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,175 new deaths, and 2,151,219 confirmed recoveries, UP by 841,971 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries seems somewhat impossible as every day, the listed number of recoveries is extremely low.  Perhaps more states have reported recoveries yet if you look at the breakdown of the states, far fewer have reported so something is going on…).   
  56. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics 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: 466,550 confirmed cases, 8,518 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,757 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,205 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 54,205 confirmed cases, 1,548 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: 412,878 confirmed number of cases, 25,126 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you suck-eyed blowfish, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.    
  57. 2020 Tuesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,378.28, DOWN 205.49 points (-0.77%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,402.09, DOWN 134.18 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,218.44, DOWN 20.97 points (-0.65%).  The price of GOLD is $1,948.70 per troy oz., +4.50 (+0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $24.33 per troy ounce, +0.03 (+0.12%).  The price of PLATINUM is $974.50 per troy oz, -11.70 (-1.19%) while the price of COPPER is $2.91 per pound, -0.0055 (-0.19%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.05 per barrel, +0.01 (+0.02%).
  58. 2021 Wednesday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 196,613,852 confirmed cases, +631,620, 4,202,371 confirmed deaths, +10,014 and 178,003,762 confirmed recoveries, +361,403.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,467,137 confirmed cases, UP 114,214 from yesterday’s reporting, 628,056 confirmed deaths, UP 705,[xi] and 29,598,755 confirmed recoveries, UP 20,860.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xii]  
  59. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 309,614 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 94,464 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  60. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,932,008 confirmed cases, 64,331 confirmed deaths, and 2,095,763 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,579,701 confirmed cases, 38,840 confirmed deaths, and 2,285,522 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 41,069 confirmed cases, 532 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 471,802 confirmed cases, 6,144 confirmed deaths, and 229,976 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Indiana: they have 768,624 confirmed cases, 13,993 confirmed deaths, and 735,115 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]
