223. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 2022

If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise. The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out. Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.

  51. 2019 Sunday:  The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend.  None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement, they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety.  Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
  52. 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it is NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly).  She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee.  It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, since dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India.  There you go.  If we, were you, Joe, we would sleep with one eye open from this point onward?  
  53. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02.  She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off one hundred officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it. 
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,185,153 confirmed cases, UP by 227,115 cases, 738,800 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,911 deaths, and 12,450,681 confirmed recoveries, UP by 292,606 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,224,867 confirmed cases, UP by 65,127 new cases, 166,456 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 2,623,403 confirmed recoveries, UP by 111,801 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.
  55. 2020 Tuesday C: 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: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, thirty-four confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 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 take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN).  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers your malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.

[xiv]  
  58. 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 316,875 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 87,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xx]        
  62. 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 $4.393 per gallon, $3.017 in Florida, $4.095 in Hawaii, and $3.878 in Washington state. [xxi]    Let us look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.931.  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- Northern Macedonia: $5.194 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,630,008,130,917 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  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 Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 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.
  63. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,303,378.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,724,395,892.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,497,274.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,497,419. [xxiv]  (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.  (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).[xxv]
  64. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea says that the United States is failing to improve relations between the two countries.  Meanwhile, the Taliban conquer their eighth provincial capital in Afghanistan.  Many believe that Kabul will implode within three months.  Joe Biden’s mouthpiece, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, says that Joe ‘does not believe the collapse of Afghanistan is inevitable’ yet it will happen because of the way regime leader Biden conducted the pull-out.  Elsewhere, for some unknown reason, the U.S. State Department is sending $50 million to totalitarian Myanmar ostensibly to help around 700,000 people address COVID-19 concerns.  Why aren’t the Chi-Coms helping their fellow thugs?
  65. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The COVID-19 Nazis are at it again: YouTube has suspended the account of Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, over the bold senator’s recent criticisms of mask and vaccine mandates.  Speaking of mandates, drooling Joe Biden says (or his earpiece says) that HE will overrule like God on High bans on mask wearing in public schools.  Go for it, Joe, go for it.  Next, the Pentagon says that ‘most troops will respond positively to being compelled to get Chi-Vi vaccines.’  Moving on, the FDA is seeking clearance to mandate a third Chi-Vi vaccine injection for transplant patients.
  66. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke led tens of thousands of Wisconsinites in demanding an audit of the 2020 Presidential and national elections.  Across the nation, more people are standing up demanding that their state’s 2020 Election results undergo a forensic audit.  At Sioux City, South Dakota, as Mike Lindell and his patriotic colleagues were producing ream after ream after ream of evidence, he discovered live on air that a federal judge was going to allow the Dominion Voting Systems multiple lawsuits to proceed against the pillow magnate and his allies.  It is clear from listening to the two days so far that the 2020 Elections a cabal of rat-eating Chi-Com scum, Democratic-Socialists, and their obsequious RINO allies manipulated the elections to their desire if not actively reversed the results.  The time is coming, and it is coming soon when all of this will find its way into the courts.  The Department of Homeland Security is warning local police department to keep an eye out for election deniers.
  67. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden News I– Flipflopping from yesterday, slobbering old Joe Biden supports New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s resignation over his obsessive grabbing, fondling, and kissing of unwilling women and men.  Joe, they will be coming for YOU next, you old Cho-Mo.  (Speaking of “Killer” Cuomo, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, calls for the arrest and prosecution of the devious governor once he is out of office.  In other Cuomo news, his ex, Sandra Lee, feels betrayed that the groper took credit for granting homosexual marriage rights in the Empire State.  Apparently, she twisted him by the gonads to do this.
  68. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– The U.S. Senate passed the massive $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that will further impoverish the United States while stuffing massive amounts of cash into the pockets of Democrats, their sycophant RINO allies, and labor unions while everyone else will suffer.   Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, blasted the Democrats’ reckless ‘tax and spend’ policies.  He ripped into the scurrilous Democrats moments before the passage of the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill of which ONLY seven percent is ‘infrastructure.’  The rest is free pork to leftwing locales, liberal politicians, and of course the omnipresent Chi-Coms.  (The Republicans are telling the Democrats to ‘go it alone’ on raising the debt ceiling).  However, the Senate passed a GOP-led amendment that prohibits government from using federal funds to promote Critical (Criminal) Race Theory in government and in education.  Unfortunately, the Democrats can always remove or negate the amendment later like they almost always do when it comes to the horror of abortion.   Finally, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, voted against the ‘infrastructure bill.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, endorsed Ohio GOP Senate candidate and author J.D. Vance in the race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Rob Portman.   In other political news, former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos says she will NOT seek the governorship of Michigan in 2022.  In other news, the speaker of the Texas state house signed arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats who are holding up progress.  Meanwhile, longtime Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district, says he will not seek re-election.  He has served the citizens of his district since 1997. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– A gunowners rights group is fighting for the right to open carry firearms at the Minnesota State Fair.  Speaking of Second Amendment rights, President Donald J. Trump is congratulating Governor Mike Parson, R-MO, for pardoning the gun-wielding couple who defended their home in last year’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests.  Leftwing trash brazenly targeted Mark and Patricia McCloskey in their front yard.  The couple stood by armed to the teeth while the mob seethed about them in the street threatening to murder them, rape Patricia McCloskey, kill the family pets, and to burn their home down in the private community.
  71. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News IV– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her Squad-backed group are hailing cop killers.  What is wrong with these leftist skanks?  Strip these hateful skanks of their protection squads and let them fend for themselves.
  72. 2021 Wednesday O: California State News– Oakland, California, city officials are calling on Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to declare a state of emergency over rising violent crime rates across the city.  These people are Democrats!
  73. 2021 Wednesday P: Texas State News– Texas counties have won court orders blocking Governor Greg Abbott’s mask ban mandates.  They want masks.  Governor Abbott also fired a shot across the bow of the tranny movement by comparing gender transformation surgeries for children to be child abuse.
  74. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3585 what with a $7 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 12, 21, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 89,125 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,064 apiece.    Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #871 with a jackpot of $241 million up for grabs: 12, 18, 20, 29, 30, and Powerball 16.  Out of 92,051 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but no Powerball for a prize of $4,4772,553.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Temecula, CA 92592.
  75. 2021 Wednesday R: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– In his hometown of Akron, Ohio, heavyweight boxer Michael “Dynamite” Dokes dies at age 54, one day after his birthday.  Over the course of his pro career, he held numerous titles and amassed a record of 61 fights, 53 wins (33 KOs), 6 losses, and 2 draws.
  76. 2021 Wednesday S: The Wrap-Up– We learned today that the Biden regime is begging OPEC and associated nations to increase oil production so gasoline prices within the United States will drop.  Folks, didn’t this stumblebum bozo clamp down on virtually every fossil fuel production project that he could within the United States so he could usher in a brave new era of solar panels and wind energy?  Whether we produce our own oil supplies or import them, we are still burning the same amount of oil.  If we produce it, we are energy independent and if we import it and rely on those sources, we sure as hell are not.  Friends, this is frigging insane and the sooner the courts begin hearing the election fraud cases on merit, the sooner we might decapitate this faux regime.  We are Americans, we are free people, and we are not going to put up with this bullshit.  NOT threatening any violence upon anyone, just saying.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  77. 2022 Thursday: The next three months are going to be a dangerous time for the American people as the closer Election Day draws near, the more desperate the Biden regime and its Joestapo thugs will become.  They thought sending the Joestapo down to Mar-a-Lago was going to be the magic bullet, yet, the bullet had the opposite effect, people are growing angrier by the minute.  As a former Democrat, I KNOW Democrats, many Democrats in fact, and they are telling me that this ‘ain’t good, Fritz, it ain’t good.’  People are wary of what is happening to our country and whether one likes Donald Trump, or they do not, most can agree on one thing: thanks to him, we are now 100-percent aware as to the existence of the Deep State and most everyone will do everything possible to DESTROY IT.  We elect our leaders, and the bureaucrats are obligated to follow their directions.  If they don’t like it, they can frigging quit.  It is not up to scum such as James Clapper, that fat pig, John Brennan, that deviant POS James Comey, and the rest of the inbred political hacks scattered throughout government to topple elected leaders.  If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise.  The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out.  Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.  It has NEVER been clearer than it is now.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.  

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0919 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Homestead.”  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:

Today’s album is the next studio album by Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, his second collaboration with the Disney Corporation- “In the Key of Disney”- which came out on October 25, 2011.  Disney was NOT yet WOKE like they would be a decade later which is why this album makes it into our presentation.  Brian ‘reimagines’ the Disney movie classics of the day in a way in which, only he can.  You have remakes of many tunes from various feature animated films whether it be “The Lion King,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Toy Story,” and loads of others well before everything became transgender, gay, lesbo, homo, you name it, all the devious, sick shit Disney now stands for.  Alas, it is what it is, we hope you seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in music and give it a listen.  Perhaps, you might like it.  Enjoy.

  61. 2020 Saturday A: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 545,787 confirmed cases, 10,189 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 3,115 confirmed cases, thirty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,467 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 61,587 confirmed cases, 1,672 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee will not list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at the numbers of another state we have not looked at lately, Ohio, the “Buckeye State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 99,969 while the number of deaths is 3,668.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Mike DeWine, a RINO, is little more than a hardcore political hack.
  62. 2020 Saturday B: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day- Let us look at the second-highest nation infected with the Wuhan Virus, Brazil:  The South American nation has 3,012,412 cases of Xi Jinping’s gift to the world what with 100,477 deaths, and 2,068,394 recoveries.   India is the third highest nation infected with this dastardly, lab-engineered virus what with 2,152,020 confirmed cases, 43,453 confirmed deaths, and 1,479,804 confirmed recoveries.  Russia comes in fourth what with 882,347 confirmed cases, 14,854 confirmed deaths, and 690,207 confirmed recoveries.  Now, let us look at the Chi-Coms, the place where this needless disaster began: they come in 30th among nations with 84,590 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 79,123 confirmed recoveries (although our sources in Hong Kong and Macau tell us they are 10-times higher than reported which sounds about right for the main communist hellhole on the planet.  Shame on them).
  63. 2020 Saturday C: Sadly, without any help from the Democrats, President Trump takes it upon himself to improve the lot of the American people, people whose lives have been thrown into freefall thanks to the Chinese Virus Crisis, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, by signing an executive order that will do the following: (1) $400 in enhanced unemployment benefits throughout the remainder of the year; (2) A payroll ‘holiday’ tax that will cut payroll taxes for every American making under $100,000 per year; (3) A continued moratorium on evictions; and (4) deferring student loan repayments until next year.  The president is asking the states to cover 25-percent of the costs while the federal government will cover the other 75-percent.  Democrats threaten to take him to court over these actions.  WHY?  They want bailouts for Blue States- like California- that is so far in the RED it risks imploding in upon itself because CalPERS needs billions of dollars to keep it solvent while Sacramento gives money and benefits- including free health care to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Let California DIE.  We say this even though our blog site is based there.  It is time for change.
  64. 2020 Saturday D: The people of Beirut, Lebanon, continue protesting their government’s corruption in allowing their port to blow up on Tuesday thanks to more than 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in the port.  Some even call for the lynching of Hezbollah boss, Hassan Nasrallah, a POS terrorist if one ever existed.  In some cases, police use live ammunition on the protesters as violence gets out of control.  Meanwhile, Portland, Oregon, sees yet another night of mayhem in the streets, its 70th but who is counting, right) while Mayor Ted Wheeler scolds Antifa for misbehaving.  Folks do what the police in Beirut are doing, the moment you see some POS rioter raise his arm to throw an incendiary device, shoot them.  It works and has always worked in the past.  Has the United States lost its nerve?
  65. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 203,441,157 confirmed cases, +463,096, 4,307,387 confirmed deaths, +7,747 and 182,742,086 confirmed recoveries, +428,841.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,543,338 confirmed cases, UP 24,390 from yesterday’s reporting, 633,116 confirmed deaths, UP 129,[ix] and 29,859,062 confirmed recoveries, UP 7,259.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[x]   
  66. 2021 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 314,674 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed 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 89,404 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  67. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,046,728 confirmed cases, 64,786 confirmed deaths, and 2,118,215 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,770,817 confirmed cases, 39,695 confirmed deaths, and 2,302,588 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 46,503 confirmed cases, 542 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 490,196 confirmed cases, 6,210 confirmed deaths, and 231,605 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kentucky: they have 495,132 confirmed cases, 7,372 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  68. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 900,482 confirmed cases, 6,542 confirmed deaths, and 863,583 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Saint Lucia, 173rd country on the list: 5,837 cases of the virus, 90 confirmed deaths and 5,452 confirmed recoveries.[xii]     
  69. 2021 Sunday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,208.51, UP 144.26 points (+0.41%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,835.76, DOWN 59.35 points (-0.40%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,436.52, UP +7.42 points (+0.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $67.83 per barrel, -0.45 (-0.66%).  The price of GOLD is $1,763.50 per troy oz., +0.40 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $24.33 per troy ounce, 0.00 (+0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $974.50 per troy oz, +2.30 (+0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $4.34 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,627.34 per troy oz, -21.72 (-0.82%).[xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $19,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $780,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,581.50 per troy oz., -7.75 (-0.30%).  [xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.05.     In Mauritanian Ouguiya, one greenback equals 357.00 and in Mauritian Rupee, a buck equal 42.95 and in Moldovan Leu, one dollar equals 17.73 of theirs.[xvi]      
  70. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt AND Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.390 per gallon, $3.022 in Florida, $4.083 in Hawaii, and $3.873 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.792.  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- Bosnia and Herzegovina: $5.078 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,618,816,777,129 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 the Chi-Coms, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom with $440 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.
  71. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– When one is the ‘border czar,’ there is never a day off.  Today marks Day No. 138 for “Kooky Kamala” Harris to oversee the nightmare along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 44 since her sole visit to the slowest portion of the border, the El Paso Sector.  Wow.  Here are the figures for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News: first, here is the cost for just this day: $576,230,464.  Imagine all the good that money could do for the American people.  Next, here is the cost for this year of caring for the millions of illegal aliens who have swept into the United States: $240,576,282,624.  Moving on, here are the numbers for border invaders for 2021: 2,465,714.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of border-jumping illegal aliens lurking within our country: 36,465,712. (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).  In other shocking border news, we learn that the Border Patrol is releasing 1,000 illegal aliens per day into the city of McAllen, Texas.  This is absolutely dreadful.  Even worse, we learned that since the beginning of the year, CBP has released 7,000 COVID-19-infected illegal aliens into the city with 1,500 dumped there just this past week- and the Biden regime wants us to wear flipping masks and get vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. 
  72. : Political News I– The ‘infrastructure bill’ in the U.S. Senate has stalled over no clear mechanism with which to fund the $1.3 trillion (or $1.7 trillion depending upon where one sees it) monstrosity.  Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that ‘Washington, D.C. is using COVID-19 to concentrate power in a very few hands and to undermine federalism by diminishing state’s rights.’  Next, the POS Mark Zuckerberg dumped $12 million on a ‘nonprofit Democratic Party consulting firm.’   Finally, Carlos Del Toro survived confirmation as the next secretary of the U.S. Navy.
  73. 2021 Sunday H: California State News– Since all GOP candidates are doing well in the Golden State, the California GOP is declining to endorse any of the candidates seeking to replace highly unpopular Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom who is clinging to power by a thread.  One of the Republicans- former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer lit up sniveling Governor Newsom for crying that the recall is some sort of ‘GOP attempt at grabbing his seat.’  Mayor Faulconer said, “NO- it’s your performance” which has been extremely horrid.
  74. 2022 Monday: As everyone knows, I once was a Democrat until I switched parties and became a Republican.  I would like to say something to the RINOs corrupting the party, losers such as “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney and her horrible father, Dick, among others.  What is wrong with you people?  Dick should have been handed over to the Hague for war crimes because that man set the entire Iraq fiasco in motion, one that killed and maimed Americans that did not have to suffer those outcomes.  Just because Donald Trump put the Bush Family in its place is not reason enough to become anti-Trump which means, “ANTI-AMERICAN.”  You are doing it all over, instigating war with Russia, war with China, war with Iran.  At some point it must stop and the only way to achieve that outcome is to send every single one of you soul-sucking war vampires out of office and into disgrace.  Going to be a great week, let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0916 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sycamore Road.”  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:

Alan Jardine released his first- and only at the time of this presentation- solo album, “A Postcard from California” on June 19, 2010.  Jardine is one of the unsung Beach Boys greats and one would have thought that the remaining Beach Boys such as Mike Love and Bruce Johnston would have sought to continue the association but no, after the death of Carl Love, Love forced him out of the band which was truly peculiar.  Perhaps it’s because Love only wanted to play the original tunes in the original ways in which, they were recorded instead of continuing the evolution of the songs in the way Carl demanded.  Jardine, however, did not throw in the towel but carried on with his own band performing the tunes as he saw them and adding new ones (well, some unreleased ones) on this, his first solo album.  Jardine performs many of the instruments as well as the vocals but also had numerous guests with which to create an amazing album.  Almost everyone- including some Beach Boys- are here which makes for a glorious audio experience.  Even Glenn Campbell is here WHO was a Beach Boy for a brief period when Brian Wilson could no longer continue on the road.  Check it out- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

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?

  40. 2000 Thursday: For some inexplicable reason, the Republican Party nominates Texas Governor George W. Bush as its nominee for president.  He would pair up with pro-never-ending war Republican, Richard “Dick” Cheney which would become the ticket from hell.  Still, war stocks would boom as would fossil fuel stocks and thus the Deep State would reap a windfall from the two terms of this diabolical ticket.

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.

  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?

[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.

[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. 1941 Tuesday: Architects presented the plans for the Pentagon to the House Subcommittee of Appropriations.  On the Eastern Front, Axis forces continue steamrolling across the Soviet Union.  The problems the Axis troops are facing is that as they head east, Russia opens up like a great funnel which dilutes the strength of the Axis forces.  That’s bad enough but stories of the atrocities the Nazis are committing behind the lines against civilians- notably communist party members and Jews- is stiffening the backbones of the Red Army soldiers.  Even without help in sight, they trade their lives to buy time for their comrades farther east to prepare defenses.   Still, Operation Barbarossa rolls forward.

  25. 1944 Saturday: The Soviet military authorities set up the Polish National Liberation Committee. In essence, they are telling the Free Polish government broadcasting orders to the Polish people from London, ‘you aren’t in charge here.’  Soviet forces capture the strategic city of Chelmno and redouble their efforts at encircling Lublin, Poland.  Meanwhile, in London, Rick Davies, future keyboardist, and vocalist with the rock group, Supertramp[i], is born in Swindon, England.
  26. 1945 Sunday: As Allied bombers continue blasting Japan, the Japanese government still is not ready to throw in the towel.  Tokyo still thinks it can negotiate a peace and tells the Allies; we are ‘open to peace feelers but not to outright surrender.’  The Imperial Japanese are determined to defend their home islands to the bitter end no matter the cost.
  27. 1945 Sunday A: The 52nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau Jr. left office on this date.  A Democrat, Secretary Morgenthau served under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt from January 01, 1934, until today.

  35. 1965 Thursday: BBC-TV in England debuted “Till Death Us Do Part” on this date.

  47. 1999 Thursday: In Rome, N.Y., the 30th anniversary music festival celebrating the original Woodstock Music and Arts Festival of 1969 begins.  None of the bands there could ever approximate the original performers and add to that the fact the concert temperatures were over 100 degrees plus, people became violent and battled with one another bringing the mess to an end on the 25th.  Some said the fiasco was ‘the day the music died,’ a comment attributed to San Francisco Examiner journalist Jane Ganahi.  Yes, we think it did die there what with a mishmash of various groups.   The fact that people fought with each other, there were sexual assaults, rapes, arson, and looting says that this event was NOT about ‘peace and love.’  Nope.  Can’t rekindle the magic.

Bush for allowing the jihadist scum to attack the United States so the President could launch a war with Iraq.  This is a bunch of felonious bull crap as EVERYONE—we repeat—EVERYONE believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

  60. 2017 Saturday: The United States Navy and President Donald J. Trump christened the newest aircraft carrier to the fleet, the USS Gerald R. Ford, on this date.    Meanwhile, in San Antonio, Texas, one of the worst incidents of tragedy in human trafficking occurs as 10 illegal aliens die in the back of an overheated semi-truck trailer.   
  61. 2018 Sunday: In response to a hateful speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet in which, he warns the s-hole nation of “CONSEQUENCES.”  The Iranians would be wise to listen to the 45th president as he is not- we repeat NOT- the 44th president who was Pro-Iranian to the bone.   Meanwhile, in anti-gun Toronto, Canada, a shooter kills 2 and wounds 13 before being shot dead by law enforcement.
  62. 2019 Monday: The latest Marvel Comics superhero film, “Avengers: Endgame,” surpasses “Avatar” as the world’s highest-grossing film pulling in $2.9 billion.  People love the comic book movies it says a lot about the public paying big bucks to watch this schlock.   Meanwhile, Pakistani President Imran Khan meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House on a state visit.   Elsewhere, in northwestern Syria at Maarat al-Numan, Russian warplanes in support of Syrian government forces kill at least 31 civilians.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump says that the ‘U.S. could win the war in Afghanistan in one week.’  “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.  If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.”  (Mr. President, this is why God gave the United States the neutron bomb- use them!).
  63. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. State Department orders the closure- by this Friday- of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China’s consulate in Houston, Texas.  The Chinese within the facility immediately start a bonfire with which to eliminate all sensitive documents but everyone knows the Houston consulate (and most of the others) are hotbeds for hostile spying on everything in the area: U.S. air force and other military bases, the U.S. space program, and bio research, especially into the Chinese-manufactured Bat Flu pandemic sweeping the planet.  Meanwhile reports inform the world that everyday PRC warplanes are buzzing Taiwan, a free nation the communists are determined to reclaim.  STAND STRONG TAIWAN!  We advocate for a return of the Two-China policy by which, Taiwan becomes a free and independent nation as they were before the United Nations threw them under the bus in favor of the PRC- Chi-Com money bought them Taiwan’s seat in the U.N. and on the U.N. Security Council.      
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: President Donald J. Trump- with Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, and numerous others- announces to the nation Operation Legend, a partnership between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to reclaim the streets from violent left-wing (and we believe communist China-funded) mobs that are murdering innocent civilians and harming countless others in numerous cities around the country.   These are standard, anti-crime-fighting activities the federal government has been carrying out for decades and all left-wing mayors and governors have been put on notice.
  65. 2020 Wednesday B: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,008,046 confirmed cases, UP by 233,159 cases, 617,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,303 deaths, and 8,511,330 confirmed recoveries, UP by 171,288 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,019,492 confirmed cases, UP by 123,689 new cases, 145,053 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,021 new deaths, and 1,185,757 confirmed recoveries, UP by 55,552 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).   
  66. 2020 Wednesday C: 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: 413,576 confirmed cases, 7,883 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,418 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,084 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 48,575 confirmed cases, 1,465 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, Florida: 379,619 confirmed number of cases, 5,459 confirmed number of deaths, and like Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Ron DeSantis?  Acting like a Blue State governor?    
  67. 2020 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,005.84, UP 165.44 points (0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,706.13, UP 25.76 points (0.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,276.02, UP 18.72 points (0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,868.80 per troy oz., +3.70 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $23.20 per troy ounce, +0.061 (+0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $964.00 per troy oz, +6.60 (0.69%) while the price of COPPER is $2.92 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.15%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.19%).
  68. 2021 Thursday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 193,366,039 confirmed cases, +559,484, 4,150,648 confirmed deaths, +8,757 and 175,704,146 confirmed recoveries, +380,427.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,218,594 confirmed cases, UP 72,118 from yesterday’s reporting, 626,172 confirmed deaths, UP 364, [viii] and 29,478,173 confirmed recoveries, UP 19,770.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]  
  69. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 307,730 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 96,348 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  70. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,890,609 confirmed cases, 64,184 confirmed deaths, and 2,087,173 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,497,828 confirmed cases, 38,566 confirmed deaths, and 2,273,461 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 39,892 confirmed cases, 527 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 467,324 confirmed cases, 6,116 confirmed deaths, and 229,145 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Ohio: they have 1,120,120 confirmed cases, 20,449 confirmed deaths, and 1,089,482 confirmed recoveries. [x]    
  71. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 856,986 confirmed cases, 6,457 confirmed deaths, and 840,712 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Hong Kong, 156th FREE STATE on the list: 11,972 cases of the virus, 212 confirmed deaths and 11,690 confirmed recoveries. [xi]     
  72. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,823.35, UP 25.35 points (+0.073%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,684.60, UP 52.64 points (+0.36%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,367.48, UP 8.79 points (+0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.70 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.20 per troy oz., -1.30 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $25.41 per troy ounce, +0.03 (+0.11%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,093.00 per troy oz, +2.40 (+0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $4.36 per pound, +0.02 (+0.48%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,723.12 per troy oz, +5.23 (+0.19%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $18,700.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $720,000.00 per troy oz., -5,000.00 (-0.69%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,466.00 per troy oz., +16.00 (+0.65%). [xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000031.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.     In Croatia Kuna, one greenback equals 6.39 and in Cuban Peso, a buck equals 24.00 and in Czech Koruna, one dollar equals 21.77 of theirs. [xv]        
  73. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.320 per gallon, $2.977 in Florida, $4.091 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Connecticut: $3.154.  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- Communist China: $4.477 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,553,133,360,269 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 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.
  74. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 121 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the CALAMITY occurring on the U.S.-Mexico border and to have done NOTHING about the crisis.  It’s also her 27th day since she has been to the border on her one and only trip with no mention as to when she might return to conduct a serious visit.  We await word of that momentous day if it should come because we would love to accompany “Willie Brown’s mattress.” 
  75. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the latest figures on the southern border mess as they always do.  First, here is the cost this day of carrying for multitudes of illegal aliens in U.S. custody: $539,396,352.  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $221,909,319,680.  Moving on, here is the estimated number for illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 2,274,392.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals in the U.S. as we speak: 36,274,392.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the inception of this blog back in 2009 that the numbers back then were around 35-50 million illegals whereas now, we believe a much more honest number is between 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Folks, we need to round them up, imprison them, and then deport them in a nonstop reverse caravan of outgoing flights, on freighters, on freight trains, via buses, and even on foot.  The country cannot handle these people, nor do we want them running amok in our country.  DEFEND THE COUNTRY NOW. [xix]
  76. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said that the U.S., South Korea, and Japan will counter any malevolent activity the North Koreans might commit.  While this is awesome, there is no pushback against the Chi-Coms.  The Chi-Coms reject a plan by the World Health Organization to determine the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Democrats remain under fire from human rights groups because they won’t call out their communist overlords for human rights violations.
  77. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The ‘Mark of the Beast’ attitude continues what with a New Jersey hospital firing SIX employees who said ‘NO’ to getting one of the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Whatever happened to ‘my body, my choice?’  Obviously, it doesn’t count here.  Meanwhile, the White House is reviewing whether it’s going to impose mask mandates on the American people whether they want them or not.   Elsewhere, One America News reported today that the VAERS website says that COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S. jumped from 11.1 thousand to 12.3 thousand deaths since the start of the year.  This number is higher than the combined deaths for all other vaccines in the country since the federal government began counting such incidents.  And they wonder WHY millions of Americans are reluctant to get vaccinated.  Finally, the National Football League says that if outbreaks of COVID-19 hits unvaccinated players and staff on a team, that team will forfeit games.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Oklahoma state lawmaker Sean Roberts urges an election audit within his state and the fake news media goes berserk and begins attacking him from all sides.  Meanwhile, security analyst Seth Keshel says that President Donald J. Trump actually won Texas by 55-percent rather than the 43-percent certified by the state.  Hence why there are calls for an Arizona-style election audit in the Lone Star State.
  79. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden signed a bill with which to boost the Crime Victims Fund today.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s town hall in Ohio, Joe continues being a laughingstock as there was less than less than 100 people in the auditorium with at least half of them being MSNBC employees.  The applause sounded canned as it has in other Joe Biden ‘appearances’ so it’s clear that most Americans see the drooling old dimwit as the usurper that he is.  How embarrassing.  Joe also is causing other consternation among his handlers as well as for the voice in his earpiece as now he is defending the Senate filibuster when a couple of weeks ago, he was calling it a ‘relic of Jim Crow.’  Come on, Joe, shake the damned cobwebs off, dude.  Come on, man!
  80. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland is going to Chicago to help with efforts to stop out-of-control gun violence in the Windy City.  We wish him luck.  In other regime news, the CIA says that ‘100 agents and their families have become victims of the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome,’ what appears to be microwave or sonic attacks directed at buildings and their occupants or at individuals singled out for such attacks.  To our knowledge, no one has figured out what- exactly- is going on or how it’s being done.  We hope the government gets this under control and responds in kind- 100 times over.
  81. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, always sucking on that lemon, says she is going to forge ahead with her ‘January 06, 2021 Select Committee’ with just her best bud, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and maybe Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, as the ONLY ‘Republicans’ on the panel seeing as how House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, pulled the rest of his appointees following lemon-sucking Nancy booting two of his picks the day before.   Leader McCarthy called Pelosi’s ‘committee’ a ‘sham committee’ and says that the Republicans will create their own January 06, 2021 ‘select’ House committee and will seek the TRUTH.  “Mumbles” Pelosi says she doesn’t give a flying you-know-what.
  82. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Regarding “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘select committee,’ Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, says that the decrepit old House speaker is content to go it alone without any Republicans.  She claims it’s ‘deadly serious, that it’s about the Constitution, that it’s about finding the truth for the American people when everyone understands that this is the witch hunt of witch hunts and that past generations of patriotic American lawmakers from all parties are rolling around in their graves with this foul dingbat destroying the fabled U.S. House of Representatives.  Shame, Nancy, shame.
  83. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Former Detroit Police James Craig made it official late yesterday: he is running to boot the incompetent political hack Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of Michigan out into the street.  Where can we send you money, Chief Craig?   Elsewhere, Rep. Beth Van Duyne, R-TX 24th congressional district, says that the ‘Democrat challenging her can’t even show up to do her own job.’  Speaking of the fugitive Texas Democrats hiding in the nation’s capital as the slave chasers’ breath down their trail, incredibly unphotogenic loser Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and his fund-raising group have sent $600,000 to his colleagues so as to keep them living in the style to which, they have become accustomed.  Good for you, Beto, good for you.  Loser.   Finally, some Texas counties are refusing to comply with Governor Gregg Abbott’s order to detain illegal aliens that fall into law enforcement’s hands.
  84. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– A new Gallup- poll says that race relations in the United States are at their lowest ebb since 2001.  Go figure.  The Democratic Party uses race to drive wages between all Americans.  Next, the Pentagon is restoring five advisory boards after purging them of Trump loyalists.  What is this?  The frigging Soviet Union?  Son-of-a-bitch!  Moving on, Pro-Death Democrats are trying to engineer an end to the Hyde Amendment.  However, Republicans are pushing back as WHY should American taxpayer dollars be used to fund abortions, not just here in our godforsaken country but across the entire flipping planet?   Speaking of Pro-Death movement, Mississippi is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to toss out the landmark abortion ruling, Roe v. Wade.
  85. 2021 Thursday Q: Economic News– Things are not looking good for the Biden regime as the weekly jobs report does not look all that good.  Last week, a whopping 419,000 people filed for first-time jobless benefits as the U.S. economy continues to struggle. 
  86. 2021 Thursday R: Moron News I– Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser quickly removed a CUBA LIBRE mural all the while protecting a Black Lives Matter communist mural in her city.  Mayor “Bow-Wow” Bowser is our MORON OF THE DAY.  Thank you for showing us exactly who you are: a socialist hack.   In other Moron News, Bruce Springsteen and bestie Barack Hussein Obama are releasing a coauthored book in October.  Wow.  How many is it for Barack now?  Seven, eight, nine books about his favorite topic, himself?
  87. 2021 Thursday S: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– The ‘Great White Hope’ (to run against President Donald J. Trump in 2020- according to the Democrats) Michael Avenatti pled ‘NOT GUILTY’ to charges of wire fraud in California.   Elsewhere, the city of Minneapolis is weighing whether or not to get rid of its police department and go in a different direction such as having healthcare workers answer urgent calls from citizens suffering crime.  If the city council should approve this stupidity, it will go on the ballot in November and the leftists trashing the city will vote yay or nay.  This is crazy and none of us will ever visit Minneapolis-St. Paul ever again.
  88. 2021 Thursday T: Big Tech News– The GOP is fighting to push BIG TECH to subsidize broadband across the entire country.  Meanwhile, in a lawsuit filed against Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, President Donald J. Trump said Section 230 is unconstitutional in that it allows these scumbags to run amok censoring whomever they like as though they have greater power than do constitutional governments.  We are moving to Gettr and to other much fairer social media sites which leads us to the next tidbit of news: Twitter is doing better than expected with ad revenues; however, more and more Americans are leaving them to hopefully wither and die on the vine.
  89. 2021 Thursday U: California State News– Pacific Gas & Electric announced it’s going to bury 10,000 miles of power lines underground so as to prohibit wildfires from starting or from getting out of control.  This should have been done long ago.  Meanwhile, Larry Elder has qualified to be on the ballot in September when the citizens of the Golden State boot Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom out on his butt.  Mr. Elder has become the frontrunner.   Most of the chef-authors here in the Golden State like Mr. Elder and believe he will make a phenomenal governor although there will be horrendous gridlock until we can get more Republicans into the state Assembly and Senate in November 2022.  One thing is for certain: with “Nazi” Newsom gone, things will infinitely improve as Mr. Elder is no Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Thank God.
  90. 2022 Friday:  Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with each of us.  We all know the ‘truth is out there’ and when it comes to ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden, the truth swirls around us like a Chi-Com shit storm.  They said President Trump was in the pay of Russian thug Vladimir Putin when in fact, it’s Joe Biden and his entire corrupt family that is in the pay of not only the Russians but the Chi-Coms and the Mexican cartels.  IF anyone is stupid enough to believe that the Biden crime family is not receiving a cut on every illegal alien crossing the border into the U.S., you must be insane.  What other reason that that (1) the Dems believe they are going to hold power forever because of the illegals and (2) the Biden Family is making a killing off each one who crosses the border.  This is insidious and it must stop and in November, we will stop it.  Let me know what you think- Chef E.C. McCardle.

[i] We began promoting the music of Supertramp on Monday, 13-July-2020 and we plan on promoting them through Tuesday, 11-August-2020.  We hope you will seek them and their music out, they are a fantastic band.

[ii] We are not sure when we will begin promoting the music of the Eagles but when we do, we will also do the music of Poco and of each group’s solo members.

[iii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iv] 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.

[v] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

[vi] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[vii] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog, so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

202. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 21, 2022

Friends, we have said for years now that there is but one way in which this country can deal with the illegal alien invasion- militarize the southern border. We believe minefields, electrified fencing, razor wire, obstacles in the middle of the Rio Grande River right down the dividing line between Mexico and the United States must be emplaced.

[v]

  63. 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 over $4.321 per gallon, $2.983 in Florida, $4.081 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Colorado: $3.531.  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- Morocco: $4.455 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,549,227,505,742 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  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 South Korea, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Canada with $120 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 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Amazing as it might seem to inattentive readers, today is Day No. 120 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 26 since her one and only visit to the border just so she could say, “I’ve been to the border” (but sure as hell have not gone back nor will go back).   The American people deserve better than this cackling hen, this braying jackass, this cawing crow, this howling jackal, this gibbering hyena to be in charge of the most important job in the country: protecting the American people by securing the border from the dregs of the Third World yet ‘Willie Brown’s mattress’ won’t do her flipping job.  Below, you will see the statistics for the Biden Border tribulation as compiled by One America News:
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Thanks to OAN, here are the current stats for the Biden Border Holocaust: (1) Cost this Day for caring for the tidal wave rolling over us from the Third World: $563,965,120.  Just this day, people, imagine what good this money could do for the American people.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the filth from the Third World: $220,838,002,688.  Yes, this number is correct.  The Democrats would rather spend this money on foreign invaders than on those for whom they claim to care: women, girls, blacks, Latinos, gays, trannys, and Muslims.  Next, (3) here is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed into the U.S. year- 2,263,412.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE LOW ESTIMATE of illegals said to be in the United States: 36,263,412. [xv]  We disagree with this last number: since 2009 when the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day first began tapping out our initial posts, we estimated the number of illegals in the country as between 35-50 million.  However, fast forward 12 years, we believe that number is closer to 75-100 million illegals.  IF we deported all the illegals back to their ratholes, rents and mortgages would plummet, jobs would increase as would wages, our children, grand-children, and great-grand-children would receive better educations, crime would drop, and hospitals and medical centers would provide better service.  However when you have 75-100 million sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats, everything goes to hell.  ROUND THEM UP, IMPRISON THEM, BUILD THE WALL, AND THEN DEPORT THEM ALL.  Our nation is in danger of being overwhelmed by the castoffs of the world’s S-hole countries.
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district says that the Biden regime and the Democrats are ‘shirking their constitutional duty’ by not getting the border under control.   Speaking of the border, we learned today that cases of the Chi-Vi in the Rio Grande Valley are up by a shocking 900-percent.  Shut down the border.  NOW!
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the land of the Chi-Coms, a massive flood in the middle portion of the country has left dozens dead and tens of thousands homeless.  Sucks to be them.   Elsewhere, effete French President Emanuel Macron is calling for an investigation into whether Morocco is using Israeli Pegasus spyware to monitor his phone calls.  Speaking of France, Paris is launching its new controversial Chi-Vi vaccine passports across the nation- no shots, no participation in normal life.  Mark of the Beast?  Beginning to look that way, folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new poll from Trafalgar says that a vast majority of Americans believe taking the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu should be a matter of personal choice and is a matter of personal choice.  Yet Democrats continue trying to steamroll the American people into taking this questionable crap even when the federal VAERS website points out the thousands of deaths and healthcare crises associated with it.  (Yup, we expect the FBI will come banging on the door at some point).  Meanwhile, Liz Harrington- President Donald J. Trump’s spokesperson- said that ‘the Biden regime has NEVER sought help from President Trump on promoting the COVID-19/Chi-Com Flu vaccines.’  Hmmm.
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Here’s something truly fascinating: communist George Soros and Bill Gates have bought a major COVID-19 testing company.  Now, we can speculate as to why?  We believe it’s to help the Chi-Coms in their ongoing bid to collect the DNA of all Americans for future nefarious use.   Speaking of the vaccines, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is defending the rights of Americans to refuse the Bat Flu vaccines.  In other news related to the Wuhan Lab-generated pandemic, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has ‘lost his credibility.’  Good thing that Senator Rand Paul sent a request for a criminal referral against the diminutive doctor to the U.S. Department of Justice seeing as how Doc Fauci lied to Congress on more than one occasion.
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News-   Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers, Republican, is calling for a decertification of the 2020 Presidential Election as the evidence of massive voter fraud and corruption negates the election.  This is bombshell news, news that is sending Democrat politicians howling mad into the wilderness for 100 years.  What was certified has been proven to be inaccurate and the next step is for the Arizona House to submit their request to decertify the most corrupt election in the history of the United States and get the ball rolling to get usurper Joe Biden out of the White House and into an orange jumpsuit.    Likewise, Texas state Republicans are seeking to conduct their own audit of the 13th largest counties where electoral shenanigans occurred.
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: 2020 Election Audit– Meanwhile, as steam begins to build in Pennsylvania for an election audit in that crooked state, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, DS-PA, is doing everything he can to prevent voting machines and software from being turned over to Republican lawmakers.  IF this was the MOST SECURE election in the history of the country, then why NOT hand the requested data and devices over to the GOP?  There is so much information coming out of the Keystone State showing the election reeked of fraud that it would be a good thing to investigate the Democratic Party’s shenanigans.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden News I– Apparently, Joe Biden had some sort of ‘town hall’ in Ohio earlier today, one in which, he was incoherent as ever.  How long can this nightmare continue with a feeble-minded president who would rather offer ice cream to young girls than try to do his job?  What a national and global embarrassment.   It would be nice if they could sync his decrepit mind with the earpiece directing him.  Zombie!
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– In news we truly don’t believe, the Biden regime’s Department of Education has said it will ‘back off’ trying to stuff Criminal, uh, Critical Race Theory down the throats of America’s students.  Oh, really? 
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News I– Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, and Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, have co-authored a bill with which to protect ALL law enforcement officers from having to purchase liability insurance to protect themselves from civil lawsuits launched by thugs against them.  Next, Democrats are proposing a bill that will demand that all women ages 18-21 register for Selective Service, i.e., the draft.  Speaking of Democrats, a new poll says that ONLY 22-percent of Arizona Democrats would vote for Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the 2022 Democratic Party Primary.  This is because she seems to be a person of conscience who believes in following the dictates of the U.S. Constitution and not the loony tunes BS coming out of the Biden regime or out of the puckered puss of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi. 
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News II– How about some more Democrat hypocrisy: Iowa Rep. Cindy Axne, 3rd congressional district, swore she would ‘never accept corporate PAC money’ and now she has.  Wow.   Anyhow, she now is under increasing pressure from the voters of that great state either to honor her pledge or to step down and let someone else with more scruples to do the job.  Speaking of corrupt Democrats, Rep. Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district and known paramour of a Chi-Com agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, is under investigation for corruption, fraud, and abuse of office by using campaign funds for his and his wife’s personal use.  Orange jumpsuit time coming soon.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News III– A new Rasmussen poll says that a vast majority of Americans would rather see a probe into Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots than they do the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, the bogus ‘insurrection’ staged and most likely set in motion by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Speaking of the nonagenarian speaker, she booted TWO of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s picks for her shoddy January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots Select Committee: Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, and Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district which led an angry Leader McCarthy to pull ALL Republicans from the faux select committee.  Closet Democrat Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, went out there and blasted Leader McCarthy for playing politics.  What the hell do we have to do to send this bozo packing?   Anyhow, Rep. Cheney said that ‘McCarthy is undermining the select committee.’ 
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News IV– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani has launched a new legal defense fund, the “Freedom Fund” to help those beset by crooked politicians and attorneys seeking to do patriots wrong.  In other pressing political news, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY, says the ‘Republicans will play no part in raising the debt ceiling.   Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers are targeting colleges and universities doling out abortifacients to students.   Elsewhere, Lt. General (Ret.) Keith Kellogg and Brigadier General Robert Spalding (Ret.) say that current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley- a political hack if one ever existed- should step down from his post.  Milley is more concerned with fighting ‘white supremacism’ than he is in doing battle with the People’s Liberation Army in communist China.  What a disgrace.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Political News V– Republicans in Michigan have finally stripped Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of her COVID-19 emergency powers.  Speaking of “Gravel Gertie,” we learned today that the so-called hit team that was going to kidnap her and sell her to the Chi-Coms or Russians or whoever most likely was full of FBI agents and informants, so the question immediately arises- were these patriots entrapped by the feds?  Rather sounds as though they were… Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury said today that ONLY 6.5-percent of the $46 billion set aside to help Americans affected by COVID-19 to pay their rent has been utilized.  Folks, this is how it ALWAYS goes- money is stuffed into various programs that almost always seems to find its way back into the hip pockets of the nomenklatura, i.e., the Democrats and their lackeys.  Wow.  Next, that little milquetoast is at it again: fired Deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe says that the formal accusation of Trump ally Mr. Tom Barrack could ‘open a Pandora’s box for the 45th president.’  Uh-huh, sure, Andy, sure, if you say so.  What are you now- 0 and 100?  Shut the hell up.
  79. 2021 Wednesday U: Moron News I– Creator of the extremely racist 1619 Project Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones said one of the stupidest statements any of us here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day have heard in ages and that is that ‘among Western nations, Cuba is the most equal.’  You are our MORON of the DAY there, Ms. Bozo the Clown.
  80. 2021 Wednesday V: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Convicted sexual deviate Harvey Weinstein is set to begin his next trial in Los Angeles, California, following his transfer to that city.
  81. 2021 Wednesday W: National Security News– CISA- the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency- announced today that since 2009-2013, Chi-Com hackers have targeted the flow of oil through at least 23 major pipelines.   Elsewhere, the CIA has tapped its top ‘Bin Laden hunter’ to get to the bottom of the so-called ‘Havana syndrome,’ the one in which, U.S. diplomatic and military personnel are targeted by sonic attacks.
  82. 2021 Wednesday X: U.S. Senate News I– As things continue going from bad to worse for slobbering old Joe Biden, a bipartisan group of senators unveiled the new National Security Powers Act with which to strip the so-called ‘46th president’ of his abilities to wage war around the globe.  While we think this is a good thing, it should not be so constraining as to make future sound-of-mind and fit-of-body presidents incapable of protecting the country.  We don’t want to see presidents transformed into feckless prime ministers.  We do think, however, that before America enters a war anywhere around the globe, it must be a DECLARED WAR with the entire nation engaged in the fight.
  83. 2021 Wednesday Y: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump said that the ‘U.S. is on the path to communism what with the federal government and BIG TECH censoring everything and everyone.’
  84. 2021 Wednesday Z: California State News– As Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom faces imminent recall in September’s recall election, his good buddy, “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces she is going to return home to campaign on his behalf.  Yup, that’s really going to help the outgoing governor, “Kooky.”  Speaking of the recall, gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner says he, she, it is going on a bus tour.  Also, it appears as though Larry Elder will qualify to be on the recall election ballot.  If he does, many of us will be voting for him.  Another Republican running for the governor’s seat is former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said today that ‘Governor Newsom is actively encouraging the homeless to relocate to the once-Golden State.’  Yikes.  
  85. 2021 Wednesday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3579 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 10, 11, 19, 30, 36, and Mega 07.  Out of 95,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were 11 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,374 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #865 with a jackpot of $161 million up for grabs: 27, 28, 44, 67, 68, and Powerball 11.  Out of 71,592 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 41 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $464 apiece.
  86. 2022 Thursday: Welcome to the Thursday edition of the NEWS of the DAY, past and present.   Friends, we have said for years now that there is but one way in which this country can deal with the illegal alien invasion- militarize the southern border.  We believe minefields, electrified fencing, razor wire, obstacles in the middle of the Rio Grande River right down the dividing line between Mexico and the United States must be emplaced.  We must make numerous rows of obstructions as well as preventative measures against tunnels such as tubing placed down in the ground that in the first sign of digging can channel flammable materials underground which can then be ignited.  We must place military forces returning from overseas along the U.S.-Mexico border giving them a year’s tour by which, they can begin reintegration into American society instead of being dumped on the streets by the likes of General Milley.  We believe seeding the river with alligators and perhaps even piranha fish and the deserts with additional rattlesnakes, scorpions, Gila monsters, and poisonous spiders would help halt the tidal wave as would the cutting off of all water supplies.  If we are to survive as a nation, we must expel these invaders including the brats.  These people are third-class citizens, used and abused by Americans.  We see them languishing in parking lots and wandering the streets.  NO ONE WANTS THEM.  People throw garbage at them, insult them, even spit on them.  Deport them and deport them now because when the GOP comes back, to hell with the immigration lawyers, the American people will join the vigilante movements by which, they will round up and forcibly- forcibly– deport all of them and the lawyers, too.  Enough is enough.  The time is fast approaching…Chef E.C. McCardle.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0898 a 24” x 36” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Arizona.”  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 Beach Boys released a somewhat humongous box set: “Hawthorne, CA- Birthplace of a Musical Legacy” on May 22, 2001.  This 2-CD set has approximately 57 tunes on it, big hits, not-so-big-hits, B-sides, unreleased, and archival tunes all lovingly compiled by Capitol Records with all sorts of additions with which to sweeten the pot.  This album was yet another gem for diehard Beach Boys fans as it contained more rarities if one can believe that that is even remotely possible.  IF you have not yet brought the music of fun-sun-surf-hot chicks, fast cars, motorcycles, and all the rest of the music that made our summers so much f**king fun back in the 1960s and 1970s and even beyond, this is the way in which new fans and old-timers like us to accomplish this necessary task. Seek it out, don’t fret the cost, and buy it now- you will be glad you did.

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 121

194. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 2022:

  1. 574 Wednesday: John III ends his reign as the 61st Roman Catholic Pope.  John served from July 17, 561 until today.  The 62nd Roman Catholic pontiff, Benedict I succeeded him.  
  2. 939 Monday: The reign of the 126th Roman Catholic Pope Leo VII ends on this date.  He first became the leader of all Christendom on January 03, 936, and from then until today, he guided the faithful on its journey to commune with Christ in the Holy Kingdom.
  3. 1099 Thursday: The Crusaders launch their final assault on Muslim strongholds in Jerusalem.  Before long, the banners of Christendom would flutter over the city and the infidels put to the sword.  In modern times, revisionists of history claim the Crusaders were ‘invaders’ of Muslim land but the Muslims were the invaders- savage ones at that- and the Crusaders were merely reclaiming the region for the Kingdom of God.
  4. 1585 Saturday: A group of 108 English colonists, led by Sir Richard Grenville, reaches Roanoke Island, North Carolina.
  5. 1590 Friday: In Rome in the Papal States, future 239th Roman Catholic Pope Clement X is born Emilio Bonaventura Altieri.  He would become pontiff on April 29, 1670 and would lead the Holy Roman Catholic Church from then until July 22, 1676.
  6. 1754 Saturday: At the beginning of the French and Indian War, George Washington surrenders the small, circular Fort Necessity in southwestern Pennsylvania, to the French.
  7. 1787 Friday: The Congress of the Confederation adopted the Northwest Ordinance, which established a government in the Northwest Territory, an area corresponding to the present-day Midwest and Upper-Midwest.
  8. 1793 Saturday: French revolutionary writer Jean-Paul Marat was stabbed to death in his bath by Charlotte Corday, who was executed four days later.
  9. 1812 Monday: New York City passed the first pawnbroker ordinance in the history of the nation.
  10. 1832 Friday: Henry R. Schoolcraft discovers the source of the Mississippi River.
  11. 1836 Wednesday: John Ruggles received patent #1 from the U.S. Patent Office for a traction wheel used in locomotive steam engines.  The patent office did not provide numbers to the previous 9,957 previous patents.
  12. 1854 Thursday: U.S. forces bomb and burn the town of San Juan del Norte, Nicaragua.
  13. 1863 Monday: Deadly rioting against the Civil War Military Draft erupted in New York City.  However, security forces put the rioting down over the course of three days.  Casualties come to approximately 1,000 plus people.

  15. 1875 Tuesday: David Brown patented the first cash-carrier system on this date.

  20. 1940 Saturday: In Opelousas, Louisiana, future ‘Ragin’ Cajun’ Master Chef Paul Prudhomme is born.  This man would have a stellar career, running the famed New Orleans restaurant “K-Paul’s.”  Amazing talent.  Be sure to buy his cookbooks.
  21. 1941 Sunday: Britain and the Soviet Union sign a mutual aid pact that provides the means for Britain to send war material to the Soviet Union in their desperate battle against Nazi Germany and its European allies.
  22. 1942 Monday: At Rovno in the Polish Ukraine, the Nazis murder 5,000 Jews.  Roger McGuinn of the Byrds[i] rock group is born in Chicago, Illinois.  The future player of the 12-string Rickenbacker guitar, he would blaze the trail for others such as Tom Petty to follow.  Any album available by this band is well-worth the price.   
  23. 1943 Tuesday: In the Soviet Union, the Battle of Kursk ends with the Soviet Union the victor, over 6,000 tanks clashed on the field of battle with the Germans losing 2,900 of them.  The death toll was more than 1 million men dead on the battlefield.
  24. 1945 Friday: The first atom bomb explodes in New Mexico.

  28. 1960 Wednesday: John F. Kennedy won the Democratic presidential nomination on the first ballot at his party’s convention in Los Angeles, California.

[xiii]        
  61. 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 over $4.313 per gallon, $3.004 in Florida, $4.052 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Virgin Islands: $3.031.  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- Brazil: $4.234 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,518,319,930,230 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Belgium, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Cayman Island with $225 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.
  62. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 112 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day. No. 18 since her one and only visit to the El Paso, Texas, sector, the quietest portion of the border.  We hope she is not drawing a check for this farce.
  63. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As the Cuban people continue fighting for their freedom from the totalitarian regime, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, slams enfeebled Joe Biden and Twitter over their lack of response to the cries for freedom or even worse, covering them up so as to make nice with the communist regime in Havana.  The Senator also said that the Cuban government relies on Chi-Com tech to clamp down on their people.  Next, the DEA announced that one of the Haitian Americans swept up in the dragnet in the aftermath of the assassination of President Jovenel Moise was a confidential informant.  Oh, he isn’t now but he sure as heck was back when.  Wow.
  64. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– France today fined Google $590 million for failing to pay news outlets for the news they run on their sites.  Whoa.  Go for it.  Elsewhere, in Nasiriyah, Iraq, in a hospital’s COVID-19 ward, a fire broke out killing at least 92 patients and injuring loads of others.
  65. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– U.S. Surgeon General of the United States Vivek Murthy says that ‘COVID-19 booster shots are probable.’  Meanwhile, a new poll says that ’63-percent of the American people expect the Chi-Coms to pay reparations to the world for infecting the planet with their deadly, lab-created virus.  Amen.
  66. 2021 Tuesday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– As Keystone State Democrats continue attacking Pennsylvania state Republican Senator Douglas Mastriano, the feisty senator says all he wants is the auditing of elections so the people will be secure with the outcome.  As for Georgia, more complaints about corrupt and fraudulent elections continue to arise no matter how much they try to say there isn’t.
  67. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is sending Dr. Jill to be his representative at the Tokyo Summer Olympics.  (Note- before YOU go, Dr. Jill, how about buying some Genusel and applying it to your flipping arms?  Yikes[xvii]).  In other news, Joe Biden continues taking incoming flak over his inability to come out and stand with the Cuban people.  All hell is breaking loose down there on the island while the ‘president’ continues pulling a Toobin in the White House basement.   Speaking of old Joe, when he visited Philadelphia today, NOT a single person lined the streets and when he gave his ‘speech,’ there were NO shots of the audience and only canned applause.  How embarrassing.  Still, the senile old fool claims we are facing the ‘worst crisis since the Civil War’ with states trying to clean up their voter rolls and enforcing voter laws.  What a load of crap.
  68. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News I– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘inflation is small potatoes if we spend more.’  Spend more what, Mitch?  Should we spend more money just to spend it or should we exercise fiscal austerity and stop with spending trillions of dollars?  Ignoramus.  Next, GOP senators introduce a bill to extend Title 42 border expulsions for all sick illegal aliens trying to get across the border.   In other news, John Gizzi of Newsmax says that Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, ‘will remain in the GOP’ even though her days are numbered.  Kelly Tshibaka, conservative Republican, is going to clean the anti-Trumper’s clock come November 2022.
  69. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News II– Rudy Giuliani says that the ongoing witch hunt against him by the Biden regime shows a ‘shocking intellectual dishonesty’ in how the regime and its fake news media allies are going about it.  What they are doing to Rudy smacks of Third World, banana republic politics.  Meanwhile, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says that RNC Chairperson Ronna Romney McDaniel is a ‘liar, that the RNC did not help President Donald J. Trump during the 2020 Election’s aftermath nor are they helping him now.’  Amen.  McDaniel claims that the arguments made by Trump’s lawyers are based upon false information in a book we think by Michael Wolff.  No, Ronna, the more the American people pay attention to YOU, the more we realize you are a SHYSTER.  Resign.
  70. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News III– In other political news, we have heard how one of the Capitol Hill rioters of January 06, 2021, had a ‘Lego replica of the U.S. Capitol in his home and that he used it as a model to storm the Capitol Building on that ill-fated but overblown day.  Well, now we learn from our esteemed and wholly honorable Federal Bureau of Investigation that the Lego model was not fully constructed.  Wow.  In other political news, a Senate panel has given its okay for Supreme Court sessions to be televised.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Cuban government cannot fire on its own people.’  Yet they can and will do it.  Finally, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, says that the Democrats ‘have a plan with which to pay for $6 trillion in new spending.’  Sure, uh-huh, Chuck; it’s called borrowing the cash from the Chi-Coms which is why the Chi-Coms via straw purchasers are buying up housing tracts, apartment buildings, entire neighborhoods, and commercial real estate.  The SOBs are going to become Americans’ landlords and mortgage holders.  What a disaster.
  71. 2021 Tuesday O: Business News– Thanks to Major League Baseball playing WOKE politics, Georgia businesses are feeling an incredible pecuniary loss what with the All-Star Game occurring in lily-white Denver, Colorado, this week.   Next, the Trump Organization has removed CFO Allen Weisselberg from his duties while the ongoing witch hunt against him continues.
  72. 2021 Tuesday P:  Joe Biden Regime News I– Andrew Saul, Social Security commissioner under President Donald J. Trump who was fired by Joe Biden when asked to resign and would not now is denied access to the agency’s computers.  Next, the Biden regime is nominating ousted RINO Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona to become the next U.S. ambassador to Turkey.  Wow.  In other much more embarrassing news for the administration, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki said today what everyone knows and that is that the groper-in-chief Joe Biden does not write his speeches, press releases, or anything else, that someone in the administration does.  Folks, it requires two weeks of prepping and heavy-duty psych meds for the ‘46th president’ to be able to come across as semi-coherent as he did today in Pennsylvania.
  73. 2021 Tuesday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Steve Cortes said on Newsmax to get ready- even in liberal states- for the upcoming clashes between America’s parents and local school boards that have gone WOKE and are pushing Criminal Race Theory, uh, Critical Race Theory.  Speaking of Criminal Race Theory, Oklahoma’s Board of Education has banned the teaching of this Marxist claptrap.  Excellent.
  74. : Whacked-Out News of the Day– Senator Bernie Sanders, CPUSA-VT, spoke up ‘in support of the Cuban people’ (yeah, right) saying that they have the right to protest peacefully.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Tuesday S: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump has warned Republicans NOT to raise taxes.  Elsewhere, President Trump told a judge today that Wisconsin impugned him over his accusations of rampant voter fraud in the Badger State.
  76. 2021 Tuesday T: California State News– Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder has entered the race to replace Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in the September recall election.   Meanwhile, due to all the incoming flak from Golden State parents, California is reconsidering its WOKE mathematics push in which math can be whatever the student wants it to be- especially if he, she, or it is a minority- instead of what it is and what it has always been- mathematics.  (Note- we remember when schools were pushing Ebonics, what the hell is this constant push to infantilize black Americans?  It’s as if they want blacks to always have to depend on whitey to help them move forward in life.  Black Americans, become Republicans, we appreciate you- Chef Brian Carrick).
  77. 2021 Tuesday U: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott (R) says that the 57 Texas House Democrats who fled the state for Washington, D.C., will be arrested upon their return to Texas.  Texas Republicans have passed a bill that will allow Texas law enforcement to go to other states to arrest the scum who are filibustering new voter integrity laws.
  78. 2021 Tuesday V: U.S. Military News– U.S. Rear Admiral Mark Montgomery, (Ret), co-author of a report says that the U.S. Navy is beleaguered by WOKENESS and that many junior officers fear the Navy will survive a clash with the Chi-Coms.  Junior officers believe that the emphasis on WOKENESS and diversity officers is more important than is preparedness to go to war with the nation’s enemies.  Apparently, administrative training takes precedence over everything else which is WRONG.  When a ship is on deployment, it must focus on warfighting and not on who’s a WHITE SUPREMACIST.  Amen.
  79. 2021 Tuesday W: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1676 has a $102 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 03, 10, 17, 26, 55, and Mega 24.  Out of 58,641 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 39 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $462 apiece.
  80. 2022 Wednesday: After watching the Dr. Jill clown show the past couple of days, if there is one thing I know, having a Ph.D. after one’s name means nothing.  Hispanics are as unique as breakfast tacos?  Really?  As a Democrat, I am embarrassed at both this ignorant woman and her bumbling, senile husband.  Perhaps it’s true what my colleagues say?  That Joe is in the pocket of the Chi-Coms?  Holy, Moly.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys- “Endless Harmony Soundtrack”- came out on August 11, 1998, and is a tie-in to a documentary film on the band as well as a presentation of previously unheard/unreleased music from the Beach Boys.  This set mostly is one compiled and produced by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston as following the death of Carl Wilson, both Brian Wilson and Alan Jardine abandoned the joint group efforts of the past.  This split among members would last until 2012 when the original members remaining would reunite for a celebratory tour.  We hope you will seek this one out for all the unique recordings, alternate takes, and selected archival cuts.  It’s a good one and worth investigation by YOU, the veteran fan.  Check it out and enjoy.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Dire Straits within the next decade.

[iii] Not sure when or if we will ever do the Sex Pistols’ music but who knows?  If we are still here in 30-40 years, we very well could.  Stay tuned for future developments.

[iv] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included the Jeff Beck Group, Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[v] We promoted the music of this venerable British guitarist as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

  60. 2020 Monday A: Here are the numbers for the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- California first: 216,550 confirmed cases, 5,936 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 872 confirmed cases, 18 confirmed deaths, and 714 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington state: 31,752 confirmed cases, 1,310 confirmed deaths, but sadly like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these worthless scumbags who manipulate the numbers and won’t publish the recoveries.  It’s all about politics.
  61. 2020 Monday B: Bret Baier of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” reports that U.S. intelligence confirmed that Vladimir Putin’s Russia paid bounties to the Taliban to kill U.S. and Coalition troops.  The question is whether President Donald J. Trump was briefed on this issue or not (the president says he was NOT) which has caused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring up ‘Trump-Russia collusion again.  Uh, okay.  Are we going to see another ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ investigation again?  Give it a break [v].  Here are today’s Stock Market numbers: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,595.80, UP 580.25 points (2.32%); NASDAQ: 9,874.15, UP 116.93 points (1.20%); the S&P 500: 3,053.24, UP 44.19 (1.47%). 
  62. 2020 Monday C: U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts joins the four liberal justices on the court to smack down the Louisiana abortion law.  Once again, court watchers are shocked.  Roberts has joined the liberal justices in more rulings as of late which has led many to ask, WTF is going on with the man?  On the other hand, the nation’s highest court upheld the president’s ability to terminate the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an entity that claims to be autonomous, but which is part of the Executive Branch.  Awesome.  Finally, famed comedian Carl Reiner died in Beverly Hills, California, at the age of 98.
  63. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 182,516,772 confirmed cases, +336,278, 3,952,180 confirmed deaths, +7,083 and 167,119,156 confirmed recoveries, +38,440.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,523,883 confirmed cases, UP 8,319 from yesterday’s reporting, 619,889 confirmed deaths, UP 294, [vi] and 29,004,365 confirmed recoveries, UP 41,516.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 301,983 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 157,666 deaths  
  65. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,818,286 confirmed cases, 63,611 confirmed deaths, and 2,073,455 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,371,220 confirmed cases, 37,817 confirmed deaths, and 2,201,120 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,669 confirmed cases, 516 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 453,217 confirmed cases, 5,957 confirmed deaths, and 225,938 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Hampshire: they have 99,481 confirmed cases, 1,371 confirmed deaths, and 97,950 confirmed recoveries. [viii]

[ix]     
  67. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,292.29, UP 9.02 points (+0.026%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,528.33, UP 27.83 points (+0.19%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,291.80, UP 1.19 points (+0.028%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $73.47 per barrel, +0.49 (+0.67%).  The price of GOLD is $1,706.90 per troy oz., -2.80 (-0.16%) while the price of SILVER is $25.89 per troy ounce, +0.01 (+0.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,067.50 per troy oz, -25.50 (-2.33%) while the price of COPPER is $4.28 per pound, 0.00 (+0.07%) [x]. The price of PALLADIUM is $2,688.11 per troy oz, +10.54 (+0.39%).

[xiii]        
  68. 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 over $4.279 per gallon, $2.978 in Florida, $4.008 in Hawaii, and $3.739 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Oklahoma: $2.819.  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- Taiwan: $3.987 per U.S. Gallon. [xv].  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,464,274,272,039 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xvi] Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position). [xvii]
  69. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 98 in which ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the southern border and Day No. 4 since she has been remotely close to the border.  Tucker Carlson reported tonight that the Biden-Harris regime is transporting illegal aliens across the country via buses until people began taking note and ratting them out and now by airliners where they dump in the dead of night in local communities.  We know this has been ongoing as President Barack Hussein Obama was doing the same thing to smaller communities around the U.S. leading local residents of all political stripes and colors to take to the streets and to prevent the buses from disgorging their inhabitants.  We must stop this and we should stop this, it is up to the American people to defend the country.  Tomorrow, President Donald J. Trump will be touring the southern border with Governor Greg Abbott and other high-ranking Lone Star State officials and Republican politicians.
  70. 2021 Tuesday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Admiral Brett Giroir says that the likelihood of a lab leak in Wuhan, communist China, is responsible for the spread of the Wuhan Virus around the world.  Thank you, communist China, for either your lackadaisical or purposeful release of this evil virus.  One America News reports that there have been 6,136 deaths connected to various COVID-19 vaccines.  All the more reason to wait.
  71. 2021 Tuesday H: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court in a 6-3 ruling today said that illegal aliens who have been previously deported and are apprehended crossing the border again have NO RIGHT to a hearing on whether they should be released into the general population while awaiting asylum claims (which are mostly bogus) or other hearings that will permit them to remain in the country.  Thus, the illegals can be held indefinitely.  Do it the right way, illegals, or don’t do it.
  72. 2021 Tuesday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Thanks to senescent Joe Biden’s indiscriminate bombing of Iranian-backed militia ‘targets’ in Syria and Iraq earlier this week, these self-same terrorists are attacking U.S. positions in the region with missiles and rockets.  We believe that this is part of ‘strategy’ by Joe Biden’s earpiece to force the United States to amp up with more attacks thus keeping troops in the region and defense bucks flowing to various military-industrial-political entities.  Joe Biden’s family never saw anything that might put cash into their pockets that they didn’t want to exploit to the max.  Meanwhile, Congressman Drew Ferguson, R-GA 3rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is going to leave Americans pining away for President Jimmy Carter.’  Ouch.
  73. 2021 Tuesday J: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani is facing another probe, i.e., witch hunt, over him supposedly lobbying President Donald J. Trump on behalf of the jihadist wannabe government of Turkey.  We recall how the left said the same thing of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret.  Bulls**t is bulls**t folks.  They hate Rudy which is a true travesty.   Elsewhere, in true crime and punishment news, we learned today that former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is close to a plea deal- ahem, double jeopardy smackdown– with the federal government over him denying street thug George Floyd his ‘civil rights’ when Officer Chauvin applied pressure to Floyd’s neck.   Elsewhere, after a U.S. marine was struck by flying lead in Times Square, N.Y., as a bunch of thugs were conducting a gun battle in broad daylight, Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio says he is going to ‘swarm law enforcement assets’ into the area.  Oh, big flipping deal.
  74. 2021 Tuesday K: Human-Caused Disasters– As the rescue efforts continue in Surfside, Florida, what with the collapse of the condominium, there are growing cries for an investigation- maybe even a grand jury- to investigate how the hell this horrifying event occurred in the United States (can you imagine if it was a ‘Trump-built building?  Ai-yi-yi!).  Congressman Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that some of these condominium boards ‘make their own rules.’  What is clear is that someone or something is going to pay a hellacious price for this.  This is something that occurs in a s—hole nations like Iran, Russia, or communist China, NOT the United States.
  75. 2021 Tuesday L: U.S. House Of Representatives News I– House Republicans are launching their own investigation into determining just how complicit the Chi-Coms are for letting loose the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Of course, the Chi-Coms are mad and are lashing out against Republicans by wailing over the lack of transparency.  These are the people who let the virus loose across the entire planet and now they are sniveling and whining, big crocodile tears running down the sides of their mouths and dripping off their chins.  Lying f**ks.   Meanwhile, the Democratic-Socialist-controlled House is going to vote on removing Confederate States of America statues from the Capitol Building.  Losers.  Meanwhile, the GOP House members have not yet said whether they will support House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s scam panel that will ‘investigate the events surrounding January 06, 2021,’ events we believe “Mumbles” had a hand in creating. After all, it was the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in American political history.
  76. 2021 Tuesday M: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is blasting his former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr as ‘weak’ and ‘pathetic,’ as excerpts from the former AG’s new book come out.  Apparently, AG Barr didn’t think President Trump could win another term and that NO election interference occurred in the November 2020 Elections, ‘interference’ he had no intention of investigating.  Folks, this is why so many American patriots are disillusioned and disappointed in scumbags such as Bill Barr.  We honestly thought he would defend the president when in fact, he defended the swamp.  Wow.  In other news regarding the 45th President, more than 3-plus million viewers tuned into Newsmax to watch President Donald J. Trump’s in Wellington, Ohio, this past weekend with millions and millions more expected to tune in to his upcoming rally in Florida this weekend.  (Note- the Democratic-Socialists are wetting themselves).
  77. 2021 Tuesday N: California State News– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom has filed a lawsuit against his hand-picked California Secretary of State Shirley Weber yesterday to make sure his party designation appears on the upcoming recall election ballot.  In other California news, Los Angeles County health officials are demanding that everyone continue wearing masks indoors as the ginned-up fear of the ‘Delta variant’ of the Chi-Com virus continues.  Meanwhile, California adds another four states- including Florida- to its list of banned travel sites for statewide employees over their being ‘unfriendly’ to the tranny and homo movements.  We at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day recall a time when Democrats claimed to be defenders of women and girls whereas now, chicks with dicks and dudes without dicks are more important in the pantheon of Democratic-Socialist Party politics than are women and girls.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Tuesday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1672 with a $61 million pot on the line: 07, 38, 50, 52, 69, and Mega 21.  Stay tuned for the results as to the winners.  Out of 48,337 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,062.
  79. 2022 Wednesday: Folks, stick around and discover whatever is occurring today.  Everyone knows that whatever it is, it’s going to be fascinating…

  51. 2006 Monday: You know, things must be really frigging bad in Belgium when the nation announces that it’s going to distribute electronic ideas to ALL children aged 12 and under which will carry special codes and will connect them to a national emergency hotline.  WTF is going on in Belgium.  Elsewhere, we must have a Republican in the White House!  Oh, wait, we do: the George W. Bush administration is upset that the New York Times- the so-called newspaper of record- has exposed a secret government program that allows the tracking of terrorists via their financial actions.  Wow.  Never flipping fails.  Anyhow, President Bush calls it ‘disgraceful.’  (Note- send the editor of the damned newspaper to prison, George.  Abraham Lincoln sure the f**k did).
  52. 2007 Tuesday: The International Atomic Energy Agency announces the dispatch of a team to North Korea to see if the government is truly willing to shut down its nuclear programs.  Of course, they won’t and they never will.
  53. 2008 Thursday: A former member of the Taliban who has now abandoned the cause creates a big stir across the globe when he says something most of us were smart enough to know: the Pakistanis supplied secret training and weapons handling to members of the Afghan Taliban so they could prevail in their war with the United States and NATO.  Pakistan is a corrupt, horrible place.
  54. 2009 Friday: Jihadists in Baghdad attack a market where local residents are going about their daily lives when a bomb goes off delivering another 13 poor souls to Allah and leaving dozens more most likely wishing they could have gone, too.  What the hell is wrong with these barbaric people?
  55. 2010 Saturday: At the G20 Summit in Ontario, Canada, Chi-Com President Hu Jintao accepts the invitation for a state visit to the United States from President Barack Hussein Obama.   Meanwhile, as bigwigs from the world’s wealthiest nations meet over caviar, imported champagnes and fromage, protesters continue running amok in the streets of the city.
  56. 2011 Sunday: As violence gets out of hand across Syria, enemies of President Bashar al-Assad release videos showing ‘Syrian soldiers’ mistreating children.  In turn, Damascus releases statistics showing that at least 400 of their uniformed personnel have been murdered by rampaging Islamist thugs.  Elsewhere, after crybabies aboard the 10-vessel of flotilla of anti-Semites blubber that ‘Israel is intimidating journalists attempting to break the blockade and get into the Gaza Strip,’ Israel says that it ‘won’t sanction the journalists.’  (Note- f**k the journalists, they are a bunch of Jew-hating losers).
  57. 2012 Tuesday: The police chief of Khartoum, Sudan, says ‘enough is enough’ and orders a violent crackdown on demonstrators screeching for CHANGE during the Arab Spring.  Meanwhile, some maggots set off a bomb outside the Tunisian embassy in Tripoli, Libya.  No injuries are reported.
  58. 2013 Wednesday: At the Appeals Court level, the 2008 Proposition 8 Ballot Measure loses, which allows same-sex marriage in the state of California to continue unimpeded.  However, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and in violation of the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution.   Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates that so far, more than 100,000 people have been killed in the civil war between government forces and ISIS scumbags.
  59. 2014 Thursday: Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine enter into free-trade pacts with the European Union, a decision counter to that of Kazakhstan and Belarus, who collaborated with Russia in creation of the Eurasian Union.  Elsewhere, heavy fighting continues in Iraq as ISIS continues tightening the ring around Baghdad, now just 50 or so miles away.   Government troops launch an airborne assault on Tikrit losing one helicopter in the immediate vicinity of the city.
  60. 2015 Friday: In yet another ruling designed to destroy the United States of America, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is a fundamental right for citizens and forces it onto all 50 states.  This is against the will of the people and yet, the court in a 5-4 decision takes it out of the hands of ALL Americans.
  61. 2016 Sunday: After a month-long struggle to reclaim the city of Fallujah, Iraqi forces finally vanquish the ISIS scum in an all-out blitz.  God bless ‘em!   Meanwhile, Panama opens the third set of locks- ones that cost the country approximately $5.25 billion (we believe funded by communist China)- that will virtually double the canal’s shipping traffic.  Elsewhere, communists attack a white pride rally in Sacramento, California.  Numerous marchers are stabbed by members of Antifa and Black Lives Matter who swoop in and cause a great deal of mayhem. 
  62. 2017 Monday: Corruption in Brazil continues unabated as state prosecutors hit President Michel Temer with corruption charges.   Meanwhile, in ever-lively Caracas, a pair of rebellious police pilots attack the nation’s supreme court, doing some damage.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms release Nobel Peace Prize laureate and political activist Liu Xiaobo from prison following his diagnosis of incurable liver cancer.  Wow.  Guess his organs weren’t worth harvesting.
  63. 2018 Tuesday: Shock of shocks, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds one of President Donald J. Trump’s travel bans against mostly Muslim nations where terrorism flourishes but also Venezuela, North Korea, and one or two others.  Elsewhere, as usual, the Palestinians are causing trouble via launching incendiary balloons over the wall and into Israel where they ignite fires and cause problems for civilized people.  Thus, the Israeli air force launches airstrikes on a convoy of vehicles that intelligence sources identified as the culprits lighting them up.  NO more balloons.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: At the airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, inspectors discover approximately 5,000 turtles concealed in luggage bound for India.  The smugglers are arrested.  Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald J. Trump continues demanding the delinquent Germans pay their NATO obligations.  The Germans have long enjoyed a free ride in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization but it’s about to end.  President Trump asks a pertinent question: ‘why are we protecting YOU from the Russians again?’ It seems as though the Germans want a cozy relationship with Vladimir Putin, perhaps to rekindle the ‘good old days’ of 1945-1991?
  65. 2020 Friday:  The FBI now is launching a task force to track down the violent rioters in Washington, D.C., who have damaged, vandalized, or destroyed various monuments, churches, and other property within the federal enclave.  Round ‘em up, prosecute them, and send them to federal prison.  Worthless scumbags.
  66. 2020 Friday A: Here are today’s stats for Xi Jinping’s infamous Wuhan Bat Flu, the planet first: 9,641,472 confirmed cases, 489,990 confirmed deaths, and 4,865,562 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you, communist China.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,511,453 confirmed cases, 126,924 confirmed deaths, and 771,155 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the World-Famous AICPENDBLOG.COM, has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers first for the Golden State: 200,461 confirmed cases, 5,812 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 815 confirmed cases, 70 confirmed deaths, and 696 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in Washington state, here are today’s stats: 30,855 confirmed cases, 1,304 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, numbers in the U.S. have commenced going up again with 46,326 new cases. 
  67. 2020 Friday B: Thanks to communist China sending the COVID-19 around the world and especially here to the United States, the week concludes with a DOWN stock market.  Here are the stats: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,015.55, DOWN 730.05 points (2.84%); NASDAQ: 9,757.22, DOWN 259.78 points (2.59%); finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,009.05, DOWN 74.71 points (2.42%).   Meanwhile, the Nancy Pelosi-controlled House passes a bill giving statehood to the District of Columbia.  It won’t pass in the U.S. Senate, nor will a majority of the states confirm it in votes.  The Democrats are such scurrilous scumbags that they will resort to anything to add two more senators to the U.S. Senate as well as Rep. Eleanor Norton Holmes- as a voting member- as well as surround the White House with angry mobs.  California Rep. Maxine Waters, Democrat, one of the biggest crooks in the lower chamber says, ‘if the district does not receive statehood, it’s because of…RACISM!’  Screw her.
  68. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 181,546,318 confirmed cases, +542,668, 3,932,741  confirmed deaths, +11,912 and 166,073,285 confirmed recoveries, +44,093.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,490,134 confirmed cases, UP 17,402 from yesterday’s reporting, 619,343 confirmed deaths, UP 408,[v] and 28,912,906 confirmed recoveries, UP 26,202.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]  
  69. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden To Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 301,437 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 158,212 deaths  
  70. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,815,503 confirmed cases, 63,568 confirmed deaths, and 2,072,436 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,367,296 confirmed cases, 37,772 confirmed deaths, and 2,179,663 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,596 confirmed cases, 515 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 452,235 confirmed cases, 5,949 confirmed deaths, and 225,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Montana: they have 113,529 confirmed cases, 1,662 confirmed deaths, and 111,406 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  71. 2021 Saturday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 840,823 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,237 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Gabon, 129th country on the list: 24,984 cases of the virus, 159 confirmed deaths and 24,958 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  72. 2021 Saturday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,433.84, UP 237.02 points (+0.69%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,360.39, DOWN 9.32 points (-0.065%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,280.70, UP 14.21 points (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $74.00 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.07%).  The price of GOLD is $1,781.80 per troy oz., +4.00 (+0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $26.19 per troy ounce, -0.10 (-0.39%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,108.20 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.42%) while the price of COPPER is $4.28 per pound, -0.02 (-0.37%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,637.10 per troy oz, -3.16 (-0.12%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $19,250.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-2.53%).

[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.81.     In Polish Zloty, one greenback equals 3.78 and in Pound Sterling, a buck equals 0.72 and in Qatari Rial, one dollar equals 3.64 of theirs.[xii]        
  73. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.268 per gallon, $2.939 in Florida, $4.004 in Hawaii, and $3.711 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Nevada: $3.707.  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- Cambodia: $3.946 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,453,093,083,972 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xvi]
  74. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I–  Okay, we have rolled the day counter back on ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris seeing as how she forced herself to make an appearance yesterday at the El Paso Sector on the southern border.  Today is Day No. 1 in which, she has not shown up on the job.  By our count, today is Day No. 95 in which, she has been placed in charge by Joe Biden’s earpiece of solving the border crisis.  (Note- minefields would do one hell of a job as would rattlesnakes and alligators).  Anyhow, here are the stats regarding illegal alien numbers and cost of caring for them as compiled and released by One America News: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens: $526,585,632.  (2) Cost this Year of caring for these illegal aliens: $193,403,338,752.  Next, number of illegal aliens who either swam the Rio Grande or climbed the fence (or overstayed their visas): 1,982,229.  Finally, (4) estimated total number of illegal aliens running amok in the country: 35,982,228.  (Note- as we say every day, since the inception of this bold, culinary professional-run blog- back in 2009- we have said the numbers were 35-50 million wet—-s back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are between 75-100 million.  Too damned many!)  (OAN cited sources- Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  75. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– The El Paso, Texas, holding pens for illegal alien minors is under close scrutiny over the reports of sexual abuse including rapes, violence, and other negative societal behaviors going on between the inmates there.  Shame.  Where’s “Kooky Kamala” Harris when you need her to actually do some work?  Speaking of the disaster, a new Harvard poll says that ’80-percent of Americans view the southern border as an out-and-out disaster, a calamity, a catastrophe.’  Amen.
  76. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– John “Perpetual Wars” Bolton says the change in government in Israel may give the slobberer-in-chief, “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden an out on the U.S. returning to the Iran nuclear deal.  Regarding Iran, there are reports that the senile usurper may lift the U.S. sanctions from mass-murderer and crazed jihadist, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.  Wow.  Is that what Barack Hussein Obama is saying in your earpiece?
  77. 2021 Saturday I: Health and Medical Alerts– Republican senators are urging the CDC to end mask mandates for all public transportation.   In other healthcare news, Johnson & Johnson settles its portion of the opioid crises cases with a $230 million payout. 
  78. 2021 Saturday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Two cities in Vermont have allowed illegal aliens the right to vote in local elections which means they will be voting in ALL elections.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, the Arizona 2020 election audit wraps up with the report coming out sometime next month.  Democrats’ teeth are chattering in fear.  In other elections/voting news, former Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga 9th congressional district, says that the ‘Biden regime’s DOJ is going after the Peach State’s new election laws because they failed in pushing through their H.R. 1 / S. 1, aka the “For the People Act,” aka “The John Lewis Voting Rights Act” or whatever crap they are calling it today.  Sounds about right.
  79. 2021 Saturday K: Political News I– A pair of Capitol Hill police officers- one of them a tatted-up freak-o-zoid- met with Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd to discuss their trauma from the Democrat Party’s FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021.  These flipping losers believe the entire Capitol Hill Police Department deserves a medal for this ginned-up ersatz action instigated by Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  (Note- whatever happened to codes of professionalism?  Since when do we have a member of law enforcement with tats up and down the sides of their necks, tats no one we know can identify?  This crap would not have flown even a decade ago).
  80. 2021 Saturday L: Political News II–  Former Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan told Newsmax that ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ ‘border visit’ was all ‘optics,’ a ‘photo op.’  He said that were it a serious visit, it would have been to ground zero where the waves of illegal aliens crash onto the shore around the clock: the Rio Grande Valley.  That’s where one goes to see the honest-to-God border insanity.  Speaking of the border calamity, Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the CBP needs resources, not ‘pats on the back.’  (Hint-hint- that means YOU, “Kooky Kamala”).  
  81. 2021 Saturday M: Political News III– Speaking of “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka “Willie Brown’s Mattress,” says that “EXTREME PROGRESS” has been made on the southern border meaning NONE has been made, it’s wide open.  She continues blaming President Donald J. Trump for the disaster befalling the border which anyone with half-a-brain or more knows is BULLS**T.  Trump handed the Biden regime a quiet border and had the goober in the White House continued building the wall and enforcing the laws, the border would be even better.   (Note- President Trump said it today, ‘the Biden regime is a complete and total disaster’- “I told you so.”  Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that when it comes to being the ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is the “GREAT PRETENDER.”  No matter what she says or does, the GOP continues lambasting the extremely unpopular, sleep-her-way-to-the-top, failed politician.
  82. 2021 Saturday N: Political News IV– Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is going to speak at the state’s GOP convention.  In other political news, famed legal scholar and professor, Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Rudy Giuliani- America’s mayor- was denied due process and the loss of his law license in New York state simply won’t be upheld in the courts.’  Awesome.   In other news, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, says that MOST Americans disagree with Criminal Race Theory- uh, ‘Critical Race Theory.’  Amen to this, too.  Elsewhere, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, brought his FREEDOM TOUR to Charlotte, North Carolina, today.  You can smell freedom in the air, folks.  Meanwhile- and this interesting so pay note- Democrats are backing off DEFUND THE POLICE going into 2022 as it’s a nonstarter for most Americans. 
  83. 2021 Saturday O: Political News V– Democrats continue their war on sensible, common-sense Trump-era regulations by trying to topple as many of them as they can.  Meanwhile, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, continues pushing members of the ultra-left-wing, anti-black conservative group.  These flipping hacks and losers won’t allow anyone who does not espouse their bigoted, racist insanity into their group.  (Note- Rep. Donalds- how about forming the CONSERVATIVE BLACK CAUCUS?)  Elsewhere, George Floyd’s brother committed a cardinal sin to the leftists and said that “ALL LIVES MATTER.”  Finally, Missouri’s state senate approves a bill that ends a showdown on abortion in the state.
  84. 2021 Saturday P: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– The suspected shooter in a horrible crime that occurred in the Bronx several days back in which, a lone gunman fired multiple shots while dancing around the intended victim.  The reason for the dancing was because the victim’s young siblings were trying to shield his body from the gangbanging thug that appeared to fire off an entire magazine of rounds.  Where is drooling Joe Biden on this intolerable crime?  (Note- Joe’s down in the basement playing pocket pool).  Elsewhere, in the always-peaceful metropolis of Portland, Oregon, (yeah, right) riots break out follow an officer-involved shooting.
  85. 2021 Saturday Q: Weather News I– The U.S. is bracing for a record heat wave and Seattle, Washington, reports its hottest day on record- ever.  Oh, the Green New Deal losers are going to be screeching like the banshees they are.  (Note- folks, it’s summertime.  If we had plentiful energy and the Democrats didn’t squander our water resources, everything would be fine).   Meanwhile, thanks to the ongoing drought in the Golden State- one easily fixed by the Democrats- the Golden State is having a banner year with rattlesnakes pouring out of their cubbyholes, crevices, and woodpiles.
  86. 2021 Saturday R: Natural Disasters– A 2.6-magnitude earthquake hit Woodlawn, Maryland, early this morning.  No reports of injuries or property damage.  Maryland seems an odd place for earthquakes. 
  87. 2021 Saturday S: Human-Caused Disasters– Following the collapse of one-half of a 12-story condominium in Surfside, Florida, early Thursday morning, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis has given Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett a brief time to determine whether residents in the remaining upright portion of the building should evacuate.  New reports suggest that the building back in 2018 saw an engineering report suggesting structural damage that needed to be fixed.  The building is about 40 years old and has been reportedly sinking 2-3 centimeters per year.  Not good.  (Note- if we lived in the building and didn’t disappear in the collapse, we would vacate the place as of yesterday).
  88. : Religion News– The U.S. Catholic bishops show their spinelessness (and the fact that they lean way far left) as they could not arrive at a policy of denying Holy Communion to Pro-Death politicians such as dribbling Joe Biden and others of his ilk.  (Note- they are afraid of losing their tax-exempt status which in our view is even worse than being craven leftists).
  89. 2021 Saturday U: NASA, Space, and UFO News– The Pentagon report on UFOs says that ‘yes, indeed they are real’ and that ‘we know little to nothing about them.’  Not very comforting but this is the most they have ever honestly said on the subject so we should be grateful, we guess.
  90. 2021 Saturday V: Moron News I– At the infamous Philly naked bike ride, participants are required to wear…MASKS.  Go figure.
  91. 2021 Saturday W: Fake News I– We learned today that FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS continue.  Two newly erected statues of George Floyd, one in New York and one in New Jersey, were spray-painted and tagged with EVIL WHITE SUPREMACIST SAYINGS.  Yeah, right, what a load of crap.  This crap will go on and imbeciles in the Biden regime and Democratic Party will continue braying like the sheeple they are of the dangers of ‘white supremacism,’ blah, blah, blah.  Anyhow, the NYC Hate Crimes Division is investigating these scurrilous scalawags.  Friends, this is a classic case of FAKE NEWS, a ginned-up bunch of crap.  Let’s get this straight- the statues are white and someone threw black paint on them.  The group that supposedly did this- Patriot Front- sounds like crap created by the liberals.  Pay NO attention but hey- other statues are defaced and torn down so why not ones dedicated to a low-level, POS, loser like Mr. Floyd?  It is what it is.
  92. 2021 Saturday X: California State News– Isn’t it amazing how this always works out?  Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom suddenly produces $5.2 billion to pay back rents for everyone requiring help with their rents due to the Chi-Com virus.  The POS loser is facing a recall election in a few months and now like a good magician, he’s able to pull some rabbits out of his hat.  (Note- he is still going to be voted out of office as everyone hates them).
  93. 2021 Saturday Y: Louisiana State News– Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has vetoed Senate Bill 118 that would permit concealed carry of firearms sans any type of permit.  Keep working at it, Louisianans.
  94. 2021 Saturday Z: Sports News I– After a devastating crash at the Tour d’ France, race organizers are urging spectators to use precautions.
  95. 2021 Saturday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3572 with a $59 million jackpot on the line: 11, 19, 24, 32, 44, and Mega 04.  Out of 141,401 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $24,716.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) Chevron in Eureka, CA 95501 and (2) 7-Eleven in El Cajon, CA 92021.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #858 with an $88 million pot on the line: 08, 31, 39, 43, 60, and Powerball 17.  Out of 48,877 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $26,989.
  96. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…
