  60. 2020 Sunday: For the first time in 45 years, NASA and SpaceX conduct a successful water landing as the Dragon X crew capsule returns two American astronauts- Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley- to Earth after two months on the International Space Station.  No longer does the United States need to pay Vladimir Putin’s Russia $85 million a pop to send American astronauts into space which once again proves to the world that Donald Trump is not a Russian stooge. 
  61. 2020 Sunday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- The Beijing Bat Flu, the one Xi Jinping sent to the rest of the world, continues trashing the world as the escapee from the Wuhan Institute of Virology continues taking names and calling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 17,852,451 confirmed cases, UP 257,910 cases, 679,794 confirmed deaths, UP 355, and 10,598,327 confirmed recoveries, UP 265,161.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 4,740,401 confirmed cases, UP 54,187, 157,113 confirmed deaths, UP 743, and 2,304,851 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,623.  The question is, WHEN are the Chi-Coms going to pay the GIGANTIC PRICE for their crimes?

  63. 2020 Sunday C: Anxious liberals are awaiting the VP pick of former Vice President Joe Biden, expected sometime this upcoming week.  Many believe it’s going to be California Sen. Kamala Harris, a woman who has achieved every position through the alleged trading of sexual favors to achieve it.  Others think it might be the Pelosi favorite, California Rep. Karen Bass, a known fan of Fidel and Raul Castro.  Others think it might be noted ‘woman of color,’ Senator Liz Warren of Massachusetts while others ponder the pick as being Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor in the Obama administration.  Still others contend Joe Biden has no clue as to who it’s going to be and awaits notice from whomever is TRULY behind his campaign.  At one time, many of us believed it could be Michelle Obama as the top of the ticket but now, who knows- it might be angry loser Stacey Abrams.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 311,417 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 92,661 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $3.032.  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- Canada: $4.739 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,595,425,431071 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 Mexico, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Kuwait 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.
  70. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 132 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the calamity befalling the nation along the southern border and Day No. 38 since her one- and only- LOL (as she always does)- visit to the slowest sector in the entire region.  Every day, approximately 5,000-10,000 illegal aliens are crossing into the United States, the advance guard of an international occupation force.  As they belittle and vilify white people using the same tactics that fat toad, Hugo Chavez, employed in Venezuela to transform his country from the most prosperous nation in Latin America to the absolute worst one in less than a decade.  What Hugo did is what the Nazis did before him and that is to single out one group, isolate it, make them highly unpopular, destroy them, and appropriate everything they own.  We must resist and the frigging Republicans must wake the f**k up.
  71. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Even though a federal judge ordered an end to the DACA program, The USCIS- the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is acting as though the judge’s ruling means nothing.  IF President Trump had told a judge to buzz off, he would be impeached yet again, yet that senile fool Joe Biden will get away with everything until his use to his handlers ends.  Ah, well, One America News presents the current numbers of the Biden Border Debacle as follows: first, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $509,880,896.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for all the illegal aliens: $233,934,602,240.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,397,642.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers for the illegal aliens estimated to be in the country as you read this: 36,397,646.  We have said since the blog’s inception that back in 2009, the numbers were around 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million and this is not good, not good at all.  We must round them up, imprison them in Joe Arpaio-style tent prisons in the desert making them work, then load them onto all available transports and deport them back to whence the f**k they came.
  72. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- We learned today that the Chi-Coms are openly boasting that the Biden regime could not stop them from launching an amphibious and airborne invasion of Taiwan.  The U.S. Navy has been drawing ire over its emphasis on WOKE POLITICS rather than preparing for warfighting.  (Note- we have said this before and will say it again: the Chi-Coms although most likely ultimately victorious in invading Taiwan will suffer losses the likes of which, they cannot comprehend.  Look what the badly outnumbered U.S. Marines did to the Imperial Japanese when the latter invaded Wake Island shortly after Pearl Harbor.  The Taiwanese people are FREE people, and the Chi-Coms are communists, and the FREE people will fight to the bitter end.  We expect the Chi-Coms could easily lose 2-5 million people in the invasion, in the surrounding waters, and in the air.  Sure, a drop in the bucket for them but the global embarrassment would be humiliating to the country that wants to rule both the world and the near Solar System.  What?  Are they planning on building gulags on the moon and Mars?).
  73. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– (Former) Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says that the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing should be yanked from that country due to them letting loose the Xi Jinping Bat Flu across the world just as they also covered it up to the best of their abilities.  A new report compiled by the GOP proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that Xi Jinping’s namesake virus was allowed to leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says there’s NO WAY that Joe Biden will go after Beijing for the crimes they’ve committed.   Meanwhile, a new poll from Rasmussen says that a majority of (brain dead) Dems want mask mandates reinstituted.’  What a swarm of ants.  One of the ants- New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio says HE won’t be reinstituting mask mandates.  The dog dingus is trying to get people to return to the Big Apple.
  74. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Biden regime is thrashing around like U.S. Olympian Raven Saunders when she was twerking on the sidelines at the Tokyo Olympic Games this past weekend: since the Centers for Disease Control cannot stop the eviction moratorium, mouthpieces are urging sympathetic states to continue the moratorium.  (Note- look- furloughed and/or unemployed workers were getting an extra $300 per week or $1,200 per month.  WTF weren’t they paying their rent?  Landlords have bills, too, for Christ’s Sake!)  Meanwhile, Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-CA 1st CD, says that the GOP is going to have to develop its own COVID-19 protocols.  Next, fully vaccinated Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is being treated for a mild case of the Chi-Vi.  In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, Governor John Bel Edwards, DS-LA, is ordering a new round of INDOOR mask mandates.  Oh, boy.
  75. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Attorney General Mark Brnovich, R-AZ, says that the Democrats and far-left rabble rousers have been abusing the elections systems for years, if not decades.   Meanwhile, nearly 60 House Republicans ask a judge to toss the Department of Justice lawsuit against the State of Georgia over its new voting laws onto the scrap heap of history.  It is a bogus lawsuit filed by a fraudulent Department of Justice.
  76. 2021 Monday K: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney said the recent order by U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland directed to the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to Congress for yet another ‘shit show’ in the House is both ‘harassment and outrageous.’  Meanwhile, Eli Lake says there’s still time for Joe Biden to ditch the crackpot idea of returning to the Iran nuclear deal talks.  We hope Joe listens, but we know he won’t. 
  77. 2021 Monday M: Political News II– Saturday Night Live cast member Michael Che was forced to scrub his social media accounts after making hateful jokes about gymnast Simone Biles.  Had he made them about a conservative, everything would be fine, but he made them about America’s favorite gymnast and here is what the bozo said: “Larry Nasser [sic] understands Simone Biles better than anyone.  He, too, had to quit doing what he loved at the pinnacle of his career because of mounting pressures.”  Elsewhere, ‘Cho-Mo’ Senator Bob Menendez, DS-NJ, and 10 European counterparts are openly condemning Joe Biden’s Nord Stream 2 ‘deal’ with Vladimir Putin. 
  78. 2021 Monday N: Political News III– Okay, here is some of what is included in the ‘bipartisan infrastructure bill’- $66 billion for railways, $658 billion to expand broadband internet access, $55 billion on clean water projects like getting rid of lead pipes, and $7.5 billion for electric vehicle charging stations.  Here is more of what is in the bill: $2.5 billion on welcome centers for migrants (we suggest minefields), $1 billion for the commission being chaired by Senator Joe Manchin’s wife (nothing like spreading a billion dollars around to buy votes), and money being doled out to various groups will be doled out by RACE and ‘gender identity’ will be recognized as a protected class- what does this have to do with frigging infrastructure?
  79. 2021 Monday O: Mass Shootings News– Over the weekend in Chicago, a long-time Democrat-controlled hellhole, 50 people were shot and five were killed.  Just another weekend in the Windy City but the body count was less than normal.
  80. 2022 Tuesday: Much talk about communist China lighting up Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi should she fly into Taiwan which we find absolutely humorous.  Shoot her down, no one would miss her.  On the serious side, IF the Chi-Coms intend to invade Taiwan- the legitimate China, the REAL China, the rightful owner of the mainland- the Chi-Coms must cross almost 100 miles of open water, dangerous water, perilous water.  Adolf Hitler was stymied by the 20 miles of the English Channel in 1940 and therefore never invaded Great Britain.  Do the Chi-Coms possess the balls to invade Taiwan?  The best way to thwart an invasion fleet is to launch drone swarms in the hundreds of thousands, perhaps in the millions.  Each drone would carry explosives and would swamp the fleet.  They would slash through the bridge windows, down the smokestack funnels and into the engine rooms, into the barrels of the deck guns, into the engines of jet aircraft waiting to launch, while underseas drones would dump mines all around the Chi-Com navy’s vessels.  The devastation would be tremendous, vast numbers of ships, men and materiel sent to the bottom in an instant.  Of course, undeclared nuclear power Taiwan could drop a BIG ONE smack dab in the midst of the invasion fleet.  Problem solved in a second.  It will be interesting to see…Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.

213. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 01, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts? Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go. Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.

  67. 2015 Saturday: After Puerto Rican Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla warned creditors the previous June that if its debt did not undergo restructuring to keep the commonwealth afloat, Puerto Rico fails to make a $58 billion payment on bonds issued by the Public Finance Corporation.  In other news, Palestinian riffraff have been causing trouble for the Israelis who after the scumbags murder an innocent wee babe in his crib by setting him on fire leads Israeli Defense Forces to take the fight to the human garbage.  At least two Palestinian 17-year-olds are killed in the resulting fray.
  68. 2016 Monday:  In the autonomous district of Yamalo-Nenets, Siberia, an outbreak of anthrax kills one person, sickens another eight, and kills at least 2,300 reindeer.  The authorities blame it on…climate change…what else?  Elsewhere, after receiving a request from the ‘government’ in Libya to take out ISIS thugs in Sirte, NATO warplanes arrive on scene, drops loads of bombs, and according to the government kills a whole lotta scumbags.

Wray the next head of the FBI, thus ending the era of the corrupt James Comey.  Elsewhere, in Herat, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again when a bomb blast at the Jawadia Shia Mosque kills at least 30 and injures and maims countless others.  Got to love the religion!  Next, famed keyboardist with the rock band, Steppenwolf- Goldy McJohn- died in Seattle, Washington, on this date from a heart attack; he was 72 years old.
  70. 2018 Wednesday: The remains of dozens of presumed casualties of the Korean War were returned to U.S. soil; in an emotional ceremony in Hawaii, military members carried 55 boxes draped with American flags off two military transport planes.  Meanwhile, in Paris, angry ticket agents at the Eiffel Tower go on strike leaving tens of thousands of tourists perplexed as to WTF to do?
  71. 2019 Thursday: Keyboardist with the Kinks[xiv] from 1979 to the early 1990s- Ian Gibbons- died at his home in England from bladder cancer; he was only 67.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate confirms Kelly Craft as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com intransigence, President Donald J. Trump announces via a tweet that starting September 1, 2019, the U.S. is going to slap a 10-percent tariff on $300 billion of Chi-Com exports.  Good.  The SOBs have been raping the United States for a long, long time.  Time to make those bloodsuckers pay.
  72. 2020 Saturday: Florida is bracing today for incoming Hurricane Isaias.  Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans are working hard to craft a new Chinese Virus relief package.  The Democrats want to continue giving unemployed Americans $600 atop their state unemployment checks while the GOP wants to slash the additional funding to $200 atop the weekly state unemployment checks.  The GOP wants workers to return to work while the Democrats seek to keep them at home, dependent upon federal government until well after the November elections.  Democrats seek to topple the U.S. economy as only then can uber-leftists force Marxism down the throats of the American people.  Finally, BOTH Democrats and Republicans slam President Donald J. Trump for seeking to remove U.S. troops from Germany and redeploy them farther east to countries such as Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, as well as bring some of them home.  Very few NATO member countries fail to pay their annual 2-percent dues.   As for the most prosperous nation in Western Europe and a linchpin of the alliance: Germany wants U.S. troops to protect them from Russia, yet Angela Merkel makes energy deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas pipelines coming directly into her country.  This is bulls**t! 
  73. 2020 Saturday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 17,594,541 confirmed cases, UP 273,147, 679,439 confirmed deaths, UP 5,617, and 10,333,166 confirmed recoveries, UP 178,140.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,686,214 confirmed cases, UP 61,034 new cases, 156,370 confirmed deaths, UP 1,124, and 2,293,228 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,254. 
  74. 2020 Saturday B: 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: 500,130 confirmed cases, 9,224 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: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,243 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 112,936 while the number of deaths is 13,588.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Tom Wolf is little more than a hardcore political hack.
  75. 2021 Sunday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 198,968,742 confirmed cases, +460,657, 4,239,563 confirmed deaths, +7,115 and 179,593,456 confirmed recoveries, +342,991.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,767,126 confirmed cases, UP 21,102 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,380 confirmed deaths, UP 70, [i] and 29,673,290 confirmed recoveries, UP 7,173.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]  
  76. 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 310,938 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 93,140 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  77. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,965,396 confirmed cases, 64,423 confirmed deaths, and 2,100,971 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,636,066 confirmed cases, 39,079 confirmed deaths, and 2,089,018 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 42,862 confirmed cases, 537 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 474,835 confirmed cases, 6,168 confirmed deaths, and 230,729 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Missouri: they have 681,518 confirmed cases, 10,289 confirmed deaths, and 577,236 confirmed recoveries. [iii]    
  78. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 875,801 confirmed cases, 6,477 confirmed deaths, and 850,950 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Gambia, 166th country on the list: 7,709 cases of the virus, 212 confirmed deaths and 6,600 confirmed recoveries. [iv]     
  79. 2021 Sunday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,935.47, DOWN 149.06 points (-0.42%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,672.68, DOWN 105.59 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,395.26, DOWN 23.89 points (-0.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $73.81 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.19%).  The price of GOLD is $1,812.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.55 per troy ounce, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,045.90 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $4.48 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,660.50 per troy oz, +14.52 (+0.55%).[vi] The price of RHODIUM is $18,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $775,000.00 per CNY/T, +22,500.00 (+2.99%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,597.75 per USD/T, +2.25 (+0.09%). [vii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.     In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,458.00 and in Jamaican Dollar, a buck equal 154.26 and in Japanese Yen, one dollar equals 109.70 of theirs. [viii]        
  80. 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 $4.373 per gallon, $2.971 in Florida, $4.084 in Hawaii, and $3.854 in Washington state. [ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.816.  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- Jamaica: $4.711 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,591,181,135,271 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Arab Emirates, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico 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 top position.
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 131 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the horrendous humanitarian disaster along the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.  It’s also her 37th day since her one and only visit to the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.   When we say ‘nothing,’ we mean, “NOTHING.”  It is time she laid down her duties- not that she ever picked them up- and returned home to spend more time with her family.  Adios.  Customs and Border Protection officials report that in the month of June, the authorities caught 190,000 illegals which means many, many more were able to have beaten the dragnet.   Speaking of CBP, former acting commissioner of the organization- Mark Morgan- calls out the hypocrisy of both Joe Biden and the Democrats over their stoppage of the border wall construction- ‘it would be cheaper to complete the wall rather than care for all of these frigging illegal aliens.’
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the horrendous ongoing mess along the southern border, here are the numbers reported by One America News for this disgusting disaster we have no choice but to watch.  It affects all of us, it harms all of us, and it will eat away at the guts of the country until everything implodes.  First, here is the COST THIS DAY of caring for all the frigging illegal aliens: $583,016,384.   Second, here is the COST THIS YEAR: $232,911,831,040.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens estimated to have crossed the border this year: 2,387,159.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals believed to be within the United States: 36,387,160.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- if you have read our blog site for any length of time, then you know we estimated as far back as 2009 when we first began being the voice of the culinary worker and professional chef that back then, we believed the number to be between 35-to-50 million whereas now, we suspect the honest-to-God number is closer to 75-100 million which means we have the seeds of our own demise residing within our country.  DEPORT THEM NOW no matter the difficulty or the cost.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– While sending Cubans back to their communist hellhole, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says that at least 100,000 Haitians will be provided work permits so they can work (and vote) in the U.S. without fear.  Elsewhere, seizures of fentanyl along the southern border are up by as much as 4,000-percent.  CBP officials report the drug comes from labs in Mexico supplied by the Chi-Coms and that it is used in cocaine, heroin, and in pill presses to create fake oxycontin and other pharmaceutical prescribed drugs being used by Americans.  Deaths are going way up once again now that President Donald J. Trump is not in the White House.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Former Iranian thug President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that while HE was president, the government lied for EIGHT years about its countless human rights abuses and violations.  Mahmoud, everyone knows that.  Iranian leaders are ALL liars.  Elsewhere, the government of Myanmar has extended its ‘state of emergency’ with the leader of the coup proclaimed the prime minister.  Meanwhile, the war in Afghanistan continues to rage what with the cities of Herat, Lashkar Gah, and Kandahar being attacked and overwhelmed in some places.  In the western portion of the country, the Taliban has attacked a United Nations compound.
  85. 2021 Sunday J:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As drooling Joe Biden continues trying to discern ways by which he can coerce the American people into taking the Kung Flu vaccines, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, says ‘nope’ to offering $100 incentives to entice her citizens into getting the shots.  (Note- we suspect they could jack it up to $1,000 per jab and people would still say, “HELL, NO, we are not getting this duck dreck”).  Meanwhile, CNN ‘health expert’ John Berman puts the blame for the ongoing ‘pandemic’ onto the shoulders of the unvaccinated while totally ignoring the wide-open borders and the hundreds of thousands of infected illegals pouring across into the United States.  Good try, Mr. Berman, but it’s all bullshit.  This dimwit also says that Joe Biden declared victory ‘way too early.’ 
  86. 2021 Sunday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Two countries- Thailand and Indonesia- are pushing away from using Chi-Com vaccines, finding fault with how they are manufactured and the myriad side effects they cause the recipients.  (Note- NO one should use any vaccine from either the Chi-Coms or the Russians.  Both are f**ked up countries).   Elsewhere, a new poll says that only 45-percent of the American people are concerned about getting the Chi-Vi while 13-percent- hardcore liberals- wet their beds at night in terror of contracting it.   What’s more, Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths and hospitalizations are at record lows.  Yes, the Delta variant of the Chi-Com flu is much more contagious- like the common cold- but much less lethal.  Also let’s not forget that about one week ago today, the Dems were beginning to drive up the fears of the Lambda variant but then abruptly yanked that one back for use at a later date.  Delta comes from India while Lambda comes from Peru. 
  87. 2021 Sunday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Fox News host Judge Janine Pirro says that the government is setting up for future COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions- especially going into 2022 so the Dems and their RINO sycophants can replicate the elections theft they perfected in conjunction with the Chi-Coms in 2020.  Judge Pirro points out that the LEFT is the science deniers.  She also asked what the ‘endgame’ in this horrible scheme is? In other Chi-Vi news, the Centers for Disease Control is paying the National Football League’s Alumni Association $3.5 million to get retired players to coerce current players into taking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines even though they have no desire to do it.  Next, in two San Francisco, California, hospitals, 233 breakthrough cases among fully vaccinated staff have occurred with at least TWO of them hospitalized.  Finally, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, R, is blasting health officials for exaggerating COVID-19’s danger via their frightening hyperbole.
  88. 2021 Sunday M: Political News I– The ‘mask mandate’ imposed by nonagenarian U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is not only unpopular with most Republicans, but  also becoming increasingly unpopular with many Democrats as well- so says the polls.  Speaking of mask mandates, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser like many other Democrats- including “Mumbles” Pelosi and her corpulent sidekick, Rep. Jerrold “Tub-of-Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th CD, all have been captured wandering around sans masks.  Next, Democrats are fretting over the fact that millions of Americans could soon be homeless once the moratorium on evictions vanishes but here’s the deal: most of the $45 billion earmarked for helping renters and mortgage holders keep current remains unused which means it’s resting peacefully in the pockets of Democrat and RINO politicians.   
  89. 2021 Sunday N: Political News II– We have been long hoping for this but it sounds like former Alaska GOP Governor Sarah Palin could return to politics and take a go at highly unpopular current Senator Lisa Murkowski in 2022.  We hope to God she runs and beats this Republican-in-name-only.  She would be an amazing addition to the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, says that ‘IF he gets the gavel in November 2022, he will launch investigations into drooling Joe Biden and extremely corrupt House Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi.   Speaking of moronic Democrats, the police chief of Charleston, South Carolina, Luther Reynolds, says that the Democrats’ Defund the Police scheme is blowing up in their faces.
  90. 2021 Sunday O: Business News– Amazon has been slammed with a $886 million fine over a recent data law breach.  Meanwhile, British-based bank Monzo Bank Ltd finds itself embroiled in a money-laundering mess.
  91. 2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts?  Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go.  Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.  I suspect that once liberal lunatics such as Joe f**king Biden seize power as his good buddy, Justin Trudeau has already done and others follow, the New World Order will be imposed on the global population with the Chi-Coms at the top.  This is evil, coordinated, and propaganda/fake news supported, and I fear if they find a way to force everyone to remain at home another election cycle, it will become a fait accompli.  Although Ukraine is being destroyed, it will be rebuilt once the world is starved into submission, the people driven into poverty, and freeze in the winters and broil in the summers, it will be too late.  Tell me what you think- Chef Hector.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE 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 next album by Beach Boys’ genius, Brian Wilson, is his first seasonal release: “What I Really Want for Christmas,” an album that came out on October 18, 2005.  The Beach Boys had a glorious Christmas album so it would make sense that Brian would do something similar and thus, here it is.  Besides doing some of his classic Beach Boys tunes such as “Little St. Nick” and “The Man with All the Toys,” he delivers some amazing covers of other, classic Yuletide tunes.  As always, he has a superb cast of supporting musicians with which to deliver a delightful holiday package.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure around the holidays.  You will be extremely glad you did- we guarantee it.

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

  51. 2017 Friday:  In the U.S. Senate, the GOP attempted to repeal Obamacare via a ‘skinny vote’ yet Sen. John McCain, a Republican, joins the Democrats to vote the measure down, final vote 51-49.  What a POS.  Barack Hussein Obama[ix] beat Sen. McCain like an old drum on Election Day in 2016, belittled him over the years, and yet, the old war horse- hating Donald Trump as much as he does- voted to keep the signature legislation of his political enemy.  Damned flipping RINOS!  Meanwhile, President Trump appoints General John Kelly his new chief-of-staff. [x]  
  52. 2018 Saturday: Having burnt more than 80,000 acres in its path, the out-of-control Carr Fire reaches Redding, California, claiming at least 5 lives, injuring countless others, and destroying numerous properties.  The liberal Democrats screech “GLOBAL WARMING!” yet everyone knows it is poor forest management as stipulated by the Democratic Party as well as their loathness about building dams and constructing water reclamation projects.
  53. 2019 Sunday: The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is outed as the first guest editor at the United Kingdom version of Vogue Magazine, the first guest in 103 years.  She would bear partial responsibility with her husband, Prince Harry, for damaging the British Royal Family.  That is what you get when you marry an American skank.
  54. 2020 Tuesday: Much to the delight of their uber-left base, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee overseeing ‘oversight’ on the Dept. of Justice rip U.S. Attorney-General Bill Barr a new one by asking questions and then disallowing the AG to answer them properly.  The amount of political grandstanding was absolutely horrible but then, those are the Democratic-Socialists who are destroying our country.  GOP committee members did their best to even the score but that becomes impossible when there are more, angry, hateful Dems on the committee than Republicans.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s Prevagen must be working because after giving a speech, he even answered some questions, going off-script several times but not quite as much as we are generally used to seeing so either his handlers were putting in answers to pre-asked questions or the former vice president had a brief moment of lucidity.  He promised to make his VP choice known next week.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 309,614 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 94,464 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.395.  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- Mali: $4.572 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,575,821,402,785 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  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 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 top position.
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 127 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the unmitigated disaster along our southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it other than to say some stupid stuff here and then begin cackling like a rural crow.  It’s also Day No. 33 since her one and only visit to the border to view the crisis firsthand.  What an embarrassment to not only the country but to the entire flipping world.   Next, here are the numbers as presented by Pro-Freedom One America News: first, here is the cost this day for caring for the invaders: $584,652,608.  Second, here is the cost for caring for the alien invaders this year: $228,529,913,856.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who swept across the border just this year: 2,342,248.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE number of illegals estimated to be lurking within the shadows of the United States as we speak: 36,342,248.  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said from our inception back in the early spring of 2009 that the numbers THEN were around 35-50 million illegal aliens whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million frigging illegal aliens.  Round them up, brand them, and then deport every single flipping one of the scoundrels back to the s—hole countries from whence they came.  NOW.  (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).
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The moron governor of California- Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom- struggling to keep his job- today granted Medi-Cal insurance to ALL illegal aliens in the state over the age of 50 which is around 250,000 of them at taxpayer costs.  We hope to get you out of office and then begin rounding this refuse up and sending it back to whence it came.  Bastards.
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Imprisoned freedom fighter Alexei Navalny is urging ALL Russians to mobilize ahead of the September elections.   In other news, the fifth high-ranking Cuban military officer or politician has mysteriously died.  They must have been standing with the Cuban people against the totalitarian, communist government.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are courting the Taliban so they can come into the hellhole of a country and rape it of its natural resources while constructing their Belt and Road communist takeover project.  (We hope the Chi-Coms become embroiled in yet another war in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires’ for at least 40 years- it would serve them right).   In other overseas news, for some unknown reason, Joe Biden is imposing NEW SANCTIONS on Syria.  Uh, okay.  WHY?  They are NOT our problem.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The National Football League is going to require vaccinated players to wear RED wristbands and unvaccinated players to wear YELLOW wristbands (while terminating coaches and staff who won’t get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines).   In other Chi-Vi news, the U.S. House of Representatives physician, Dr. Brian Monahan, a Pelosi hack, has ordered EVERYONE to wear masks in the House.  NO exceptions.  Meanwhile, so-called ‘rare’ BREAKTHROUGH cases of the Chi-Vi are slamming into fully vaccinated citizens, something mumbling, stumbling old ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden says is ‘impossible.’    
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, vaccinated U.S. travelers won’t have to quarantine upon arrival in Great Britain. Wow.  Elsewhere, New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio gave up on giving people a free bag of French fries and is now offering $100 to anyone who will go out and get vaccinated.  F**k him.  Elsewhere, intelligent politicians and medical professionals have pointed out that the rates of hospitalizations for the China Virus are a better indicator as to how bad the ongoing pandemic is which means it is NOT as bad as what the Democrats are pushing because fewer people are being hospitalized for the Kung Flu.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says he’s ‘not flipflopped, no, the virus has changed.’  Elsewhere, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, famed legal scholar, author, and professor said to Newsmax that the ‘courts will likely back COVID-19 vaccination mandates.’  Scary.  MARK OF THE BEAST to be sure… (Interesting note- Forbes Magazine reports that there are 40 NEW BILLIONAIRES who have become fabulously wealthy from the Chi-Com lab-generated pandemic).
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Meanwhile, as more images of COVID-19-infected illegal aliens appear across the country, more and more Americans on all sides of the political aisle are growing increasingly angrier.  There are reports of sick illegals being dumped all across the U.S.- most notably in RED states and cities- and left in the streets.  There, they spread not only the Wuhan Virus but other foul and detestable diseases that can or are causing a national health emergency.  A national reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon and with House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s margin being slashed to just THREE with the election of Republican Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th congressional district, we hope that reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon.
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– Top Democrats are encouraging brain-dead Joe Biden to negate $50,000 loan debt per student borrower.  This is more money the federal government is going to borrow from the Chi-Coms.  Talk about a National Security issue.  Man, oh, man.   In other news, the new DEATH TAX the Democratic-Socialist Party is proposing could cost 1 million jobs and $1 trillion of U.S. GDP over the next 10 years.  WTF is wrong with these SOBs?   In other news, Senate Republicans have agreed to $1 trillion in infrastructure spending. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, that she ‘stacked the January 06, 2021 (sham) select committee’ with a bunch of party apparatchiks and RINO Republicans.  Speaking of Mumbles, Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, lit up the House speaker over her demand that everyone wear masks while allowing millions of illegals into the country and then distributing them across the United States without masks and COVID-19 tests.  WTF is up with that?
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– An imbecile named Thomas Patrick Connally Jr. was charged in a Maryland federal court with threatening to murder Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and his family as well as the National Institute of Health director, Dr. Francis Collins.  Apparently, the bonehead was sending threatening emails to Dr. Fauci, Dr. Collins, and to others and now must pay the piper.  There are always some in every crowd.  We would never call for anyone to be attacked, assaulted, raped, robbed, or beaten.  Like Democrats, we might participate in schadenfreude as do the Dems and frankly, millions of their supporters, we would never encourage any illegal act, even when we jokingly talk about ‘lead to the back of the head’ in the Annual Lavrentiy Beria contests.  It’s all for a hoot.  In other crime news, BIG DEMOCRAT donor (and big friend of the Clintons) Ed Buck from West Hollywood, California, was convicted on all nine counts of giving methamphetamine to young black men for sex, two of whom died.  Wow.   Finally, in Joe Biden’s America, convicted pedophile and rapist Dr. Larry Nassar received COVID-19 stimulus checks but has yet to pay restitution to his victims.  ONLY in Joe Biden’s America…speaking of Joe’s America, the Department of Justice is dropping investigations into nursing home deaths in Michigan and New York.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Big Tech News– Apple beats fiscal Q3 earnings expectations.  Likewise, Alphabet- the parent company of Google- is reporting surging ad revenues.   Speaking of Google, they are delaying the return of employees to their office while mandating ALL employees get one of the Chi-Vi vaccines before they do or to find another job.
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, today, famed bassist and vocalist with the ‘Little ole Band from Texas’- ZZ Top- Dusty Hill died in his sleep this morning at the age of 72.  He died in Houston, Texas, and his death was reported by his two band mates, Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard.  According to his wishes, the band will continue to perform their fiery brand of Texas-Deep South Blues.  God bless you, Dusty, have a glorious afterlife!
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3581 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 20, 24, 32, 35, 39, and Mega 25.  Out of 85,662 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $7,862 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Valero, Salinas, CA 93906; (2) Smart & Final in Goleta, CA 93117; (3) Raley’s in Sacramento, CA 95826; and (4) Shell in Palmdale, CA 93551.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #867 with a jackpot of $186 million up for grabs: 25, 30, 53, 59, 60, and Powerball 05.  Stick around for the results.  Update: Out of 77,278 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $10,200.
  76. 2022 Thursday: California’s incredibly stupid governor, pretty boy Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, has bitten off far more than his pursy little lips can chew: he has launched ads against Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas.  For some reason known only to his petulant little mind, Governor Newsom seems to believe he has a record on which to run.  Wrong!  His record is one of failure and the ONLY reason he survived his recall election is because the GOP did not get behind any of his opponents seeking to unseat the little prick.  I have said it before and will say it yet again: California is not a LOST state.  We are a state waiting to explode.  IF only the GOP would come in here and help us push Brian Dahle across the finish line, we could get this bum out of office.  Perhaps if the GOP won’t do it, we cannot wait to see the ads the governors of Texas and Florida are going to launch at him come late October.  Going to be some grisly but hilarious s**t, we expect.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys record label released “Carl and the Passions- So Tough” and “Holland” on one compact disc on April 21, 2003.  Here is the overview of each: The next album by the Beach Boys marked a distinct move into much more social consciousness that began on the preceding album.  The Beach Boys were touring college and university campuses, were all about conservation, the grandfather of today’s loony tunes ‘green movement.’  Beards were getting longer, hair well past the collars and what with the departure of Bruce Johnston- asked to leave because he would not grow a beard, embrace Transcendental Meditation- the band brought into South African musicians, BLACK MUSICIANS to complete the social consciousness move.  Thus, we have a new album, “Carl and the Passions- So Tough,” an album that came out on May 15, 1972.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals- Dennis was having hand problems due to a major cut that prevented him from pounding the skins).  Next, here is the overview of “Holland”:  The next album from the Beach Boys- “Holland”- came out on January 08, 1973 and was one of their best.  The band at this time had abandoned the West Coast for the Atlantic coast- in Holland- and produced some stunning material.  The lineup once again featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals).  Every tune on this album is excellent.  For less than $20, you can add not one but two albums to your collection in one shot.  Enjoy.

[i] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

[ii] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[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 hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[v] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[vi] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

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

[ix] Millions of Americans believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[x] We would come to learn later that Gen. John Kelly was a dishonorable man who worked against the Trump agenda instead of working to help his boss.  The man is a disgraceful swamp creature and should spend the rest of his days living in shame.

200. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 19, 2022

2022 Tuesday: Here is another thought- those of us who live under the despotic rule of Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom cannot wait to see the ads that “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis will drop on our bozo chief executive come late October. Gov. Newsom is such a worthless POS that he deserves ridicule and derision from everyone. The man is so flipping stupid not to comprehend that he is a target-rich environment when it comes being trolled. It’s going to be fun. Chef E.C. McCardle.

  63. 2019 Friday A: Meanwhile in the Straits of Hormuz, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard seizes the Swedish-owned but British-flagged oil tanker Stena Impero and holds it hostage.  As a show of contempt for the UK, the Iranian scum keep the ship in its waters until September 27 at which time they released the rest of the crew, having let some of them go earlier.

  72. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.324 per gallon, $2.990 in Florida, $4.070 in Hawaii, and $3.840 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Arkansas: $2.856.  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- Nicaragua: $4.365 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,541,728,261,929 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping 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 Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia with $180 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.
  73. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, by our count, today is Day No. 118 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, [xx] aka the gibbering jackal, aka the howling banshee, aka the twittering mountain ape, aka the chirruping jackanapes, aka Willie Brown’s bottom mattress to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border.  What’s more, it’s also her 24th day since her one and only visit to the southern border with no signs of her returning anytime soon.  Perhaps once President Donald J. Trump announces another trip to the border, the screeching night bird will schedule another quickie stop so as to make it appear as though she is doing something.  What a pathetic loser.
  74. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the latest numbers on the costs and the numbers associated with the massive pandemic of illegal alien invaders earlier today.  First, here is the Cost This Day of caring for the illegal vermin flooding our country: $584,741,376.  Imagine what this money could do for the homeless, the addicted, the mentally ill, and for veterans and minorities.  Alas, the Democrats would rather waste it on their new ‘class of slaves,’ the illegal aliens.  Second, here is the Cost This Year of caring for the illegal alien pests flooding into the country: $218,666,975,232.  Let us ask our black fellow Americans a question: WOULD you rather see this money distributed to you as reparations for slavery or would you rather it go to people who have no business being here, people who take YOUR jobs, drive up the costs of rents, mortgages, groceries, and who clog YOUR schools and hospitals?   Think about it and let us know.  Third, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals who have flooded the United States just this year: 2,241,161.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the numbers of illegals clogging the shadows of the country: 36,241,160.  (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).  Folks, it is interesting to note that the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day said back in 2009 when we wrote for Choseit.com that the numbers of illegal aliens then were between 35-50 million.  After our move to Google Blogger in late 2010, we continued with this number whereas now, we believe that the TRUE number of illegal aliens in this country now rests at between 75-100 million.  Time for someone to begin handing out illegal alien hunting licenses…
  75. 2021 Monday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Scott L. Fitzgerald, R-WI 5th congressional district, says that control of the border will weaken even more sans the Title 42 protections that allow the U.S. government to reject illegal aliens consumed by disease.   In other troubling illegal alien news, Tucker Carlson reported on his show- Tucker Carlson Tonight- that while the Democrats continue seeding illegal aliens across the interior of the United States using military airfields as their way stations, the Republicans either tacitly approve of the actions or remain mum.  This is not good and it must stop.  Chef Lilah on Maui has reported that a family member who works in Honolulu at the airport reports that twice a month, airliners come in, dump illegal alien brats on the tarmac who are then redistributed around the islands.  Not good.
  76. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As the Cuban people continue demanding freedom from the communist tyranny under which they have suffered for 62 years, dingbats like Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, the one they call “AOC,” continue to support the communist regime.   Meanwhile, Canada says it will ‘open the border to U.S. citizens next month who can prove they have been vaccinated.’  Big whoop.   Elsewhere, in Japan, a court handed down prison sentences to the father and son team who enabled Carlos Ghosn- big automobile CEO- to escape corruption charges against him.  The father, Michael Taylor, got two years in a Japanese slammer while the son- Peter- received 20 months. 
  77. 2021 Monday J: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Xi Jinping of the Chi-Coms warned Japan today that if the Japanese come to the aid of Taiwan- aka FREE CHINA- they will ‘nuke them off the face of the Earth.’  How nice.  Let’s launch a pre-emptive strike on not just the Chi-Coms but on the Russians, Iranians, Cubans, and Venezuelans.  Drooling Joe Biden, NUKE THEM NOW.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we learn today that their hackers- Red Patriots as they call them- openly advertise their capabilities on Chi-Com TV.  All the more reason to nuke these scumbags off the face of the planet.  Elsewhere, we learn today that Israeli spyware- Pegasus- is being used around the world to target journalists and activists. 
  78. 2021 Monday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the Biden regime continues floundering about trying to find ways to shame the American people into falling into step and getting the Yellow Flu vaccines that six months ago, they told us we would be fools to get, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control, is going to adopt Critical Race Theory (Criminal Race Theory in reality) rhetoric to try to shame the American people into getting this crap.  Look, the Biden regime is going to toss Title 42- the portion of the immigration laws that allows the U.S. to deny entry to sick illegal aliens- so if millions of untested and unvaccinated illegals can pour into the country, why the f**k should we rush out and get the vaccines?  Furthermore, anyone stupid enough to come to the door trying to give us the vaccine is either going to get an ass-whipping they won’t soon forget or is going to get shot.   (Note- our very own Chef Bea O’Malley, a woman of color, has said repeatedly that every time white liberals encourage black Americans to do something ‘for their own good,’ it never works out well for them so stop pushing the crap already).
  79. 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of the aforementioned Centers for Disease Control, a pediatrics group is openly contradicting CDC guidelines by saying ALL children and staff should wear masks in schools.   Along similar lines, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sheriff Alex Villanueva says he will NOT enforce the unscientific mandates recently slapped back on the people.’  Elsewhere, regarding the rising numbers of the Chi-Vi, two-thirds of Japan’s citizenry fear hosting the Summer Olympic Games as scheduled.   Meanwhile, a British health official reports that 40-PERCENT of serious cases of the Wuhan Flu that end up in the hospital are people who have been fully vaccinated.   So reported Tucker Carlson tonight.
  80. 2021 Monday M: Health and Medical Alerts– Reimposed mask mandates send the wrong message on Chi-Com Dink-a-Link vaccines.   Elsewhere, now that the CDC has found a judge that allowed them to slap mask mandates back on the cruise line industry, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis vows to take the fight to end mask mandates on the cruise lines to the United States Supreme Court.  Excellent.
  81. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– After being blasted 24/7 over the weekend for his comments pertaining to Facebook KILLING people through the misinformation, they continue publishing on how great the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines are, the drooling Oval Office usurper is toning down his rhetoric.   (Note- the same maxim holds true here as it did when print media was honest and powerful: Joe, don’t pick fights with people or entities who buy ‘ink’ by the barrel meaning that Mark “F**k” Zuckerberg, his allies Jack “Dingleberry” Dorsey at Twitter and other BIG TECH connivers can do you immense harm just as they did President Donald J. Trump.
  82. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Joe Biden regime is transferring the first Gitmo detainee out of the POW camp to Morocco.  How about we plant a tracking chip in the scumbag and then ‘drone him?’  Meanwhile, the Biden regime vows that the Department of Justice will contest the recent federal court ruling that tossed out the unconstitutional DACA program.  Go for it.  We hope every DACA recipient is rounded up, imprisoned, and then when transport becomes available, they are dumped back into Central America or from wherever else they might have come.
  83. 2021 Monday P: Political News I– Besides costing Democratic-Socialists $1.5 million for their run to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., last week so as to avoid doing their duty in the Lone Star State, the Democrats who left Texas also took at least FIVE cases of the Chinese Virus with them to the District of Columbia thus making it a ‘super-spreader event.’  They are no different than ‘Covid Corey’ who gave the Chi-Vi to all the fruits on Fire Island last summer.  Shame on YOU.  Next, as the Democratic-Socialists continue trying to re-jigger last year’s 2020 Elections results, a new ‘study’ now says that polling institutes OVERESTIMATED support for BOTH Republicans and President Donald J. Trump so as to justify that ‘he didn’t win’ which is bullshit. 
  84. 2021 Monday Q: Political News II– Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large congressional district, says that the ‘Dems are out to control voting in the United States via the infrastructure bill.’  Remember, the ONLY way the Democrats were able to push through Obamacare was by attaching to a budget bill that had already passed.  Otherwise, that crap bill would NEVER have passed.  The Dems are trying to do it again via budget reconciliation.   Senator Amy “The Schnoz” Klobuchar- failed Democratic-Socialist presidential candidate from Minnesota- says that ‘voting is indeed part of infrastructure.’  NOT the way you envision it, “Schnoz.”
  85. 2021 Monday R: Political News III– Liberal groups are trying to target Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, in 2022 by re-jiggering statements he made about January 06, 2021, i.e., the FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS carried out by the Democratic-Socialists under the command of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Speaking of the ‘Capitol Hill Riots’ of that ill-fated day back in January, the Capitol Hill Police hired a new chief today, one who will be subservient to Massa Nancy.  In other related news, one of the first ‘Capitol Hill Riots’ rioters just received an 8-month sentence in a D.C. slammer for having made it inside the Capitol Building on that brisk January day.   Finally, in other political news, Rep. Brendan Boyle, DS-PA 2nd congressional district, introduced a resolution that would prohibit President Donald J. Trump from becoming speaker of the House.
  86. 2021 Monday S: Political News IV– Tucker Carlson reported this evening that a Department of Justice presentation obtained by Fox News Channel has identified the THREE MAJOR CAUSES of inner-city violence.  What he found surprised the hell out of us just as it will you: the three causes of inner-city shootings and killings are (1) WHITE SUPREMACISM (2) RACISM and (3) THE COPS.  Wow.  Very Orwellian if you ask us.  In other political news, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, has named FIVE Republicans to the House Select Committee on the ’causes’ behind the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, i.e., the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY: (1) Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district and ranking member; (2) Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district; (3) Rep. Rodney Davis, R-IL 13th congressional district; (4) Rep. Kelly Armstrong, R-ND At-Large congressional district; and (5) Rep. Troy Nehls, R-TX 22nd congressional district.   (Note- it appears that Leader McCarthy lacked the balls to put Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, and/or Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, on the committee.  We know what we’ll get.
  87. 2021 Monday T: Business News– After OPEC and their allies agreed to increase production, global oil prices began to fall.   Elsewhere, art critic Sebastian Smee recently said of Hunter Biden’s artworks that the crap is ‘not worth more than $1,000.’  Hunter should go on the Starving Artists tour.  In other business news, Delaware just guaranteed the loss of jobs by raising the state’s minimum wage to $15 per hour. 
  88. 2021 Monday U:  Economic News– As fears of new Chi-Vi eruptions around the country continue to grow, the stock market took another massive slide today mirroring last week’s massive losses on Friday.  We predicted back in January that by late summer/early fall, the markets would be in the tank.  Whether or not this happens, we stand with what we said.   In other fascinating news, freedom-fighter journalist Glen Greenwald says that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is raking in millions on companies SHE regulates through Congress.  Wow.  And they were angry at the Reddit users making a killing off GameStop stocks.   Finally, a new poll says that 88-percent of the American people are growing increasingly concerned over the rising cost of living.
  89. 2021 Monday V: Big Tech News– Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says that Democrats and Big Tech are working hard at creating a symbiotic relationship between Democratic-Socialists and BIG TECH.  The Democrats genuinely want to bring George Orwell’s “1984” to life.  Elsewhere, Gettr has President Donald J. Trump’s old Twitter handle ‘in the safe.’
  90. 2021 Monday W: War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– NATO issued a forceful statement today encouraging the Taliban to stop running amok in Afghanistan as Western forces continue withdrawing combat forces.  (Note- we are sure the Taliban is listening to your warnings).  Retired U.S. Army General (and former CIA director) David Petraeus says that ‘the U.S. will come to regret the way in which it left Afghanistan.’  Once out, the U.S. cannot return.  (We hope the Chi-Coms fill the void and we hope the SOBs get sucked into a malevolent maelstrom of endless war.  We cannot see the Taliban allying with godless Chi-Coms who keep millions of fellow Muslims in slave labor camps).
  91. 2021 Monday X: U.S. Senate News I– U.S. Senate Democrats propose adding women to help draft laws.  What?  It’s 2021 and this has yet to happen.  Meanwhile, Senate Republicans warn Senate ‘Majority Leader’ “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer about the onrushing deadline to get something legitimate accomplished on the so-called ‘infrastructure bill.’
  92. 2021 Monday Y: Fake News I– It was fun watching author Michael Wolff- a great writer of FICTION- lambaste Brian “The Eunuch” Stelter as a proprietor of fake news.  What he said was that CNN presents itself as ‘virtuous news’ when in fact they are fake news.  Stelter was stunned and criticized Wolff for eagerly coming on the channel to share his views to which, Mr. Wolff said, ‘he does so to sell books.’  Hilarious.   Speaking of CNN, they announced that they are going to launch a new subscription streaming service as Fox News Channel has sometime in 2022.  Wow.  Can’t wait.
  93. 2021 Monday Z: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Fashion magazine Marie Claire says that media should show more parents getting abortions.  Sick f**ks
  94. 2022 Tuesday: Will today be the day that Joe Biden trundles off to the rest home and his despicable wife, ‘Dr. Jill’ Biden goes to prison for elder abuse?  Let’s hope so.  Here is another thought- those of us who live under the despotic rule of Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom cannot wait to see the ads that “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis will drop on our bozo chief executive come late October.  Gov. Newsom is such a worthless POS that he deserves ridicule and derision from everyone.  The man is so flipping stupid not to comprehend that he is a target-rich environment when it comes being trolled.  It’s going to be fun.  Chef E.C. McCardle.

The final original recording by Beach Boy Carl Wilson- “Like a Brother”- came out on March 15, 2000, two years after his death from lung cancer.  Over the years- interesting fact- the Beach Boys joined bands like the Grateful Dead (you can find these bootleg albums and foreign releases by going to RZ Record) and Chicago where the groups united to deliver joint sets, all of which were phenomenal.  In this case, work on the album began in 1992 and ended in 1997 and features collaborations between Carl and Robert Lamm (Chicago) and Gerry Beckley (America) joined by a load of talented musicians with which to create the aura surrounding this album.  There are 10 tunes here (13 on a Japanese re-release from 2001) which are amazingly delightful melding of the styles of three great bands and three glorious artists, all in synch with one another.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite haunt for music and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure; we think you will be glad that you did.  Enjoy.

[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Northern Marianas: $4.219.  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- Cameroun: $4.308 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,529,753,408,327 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 Hong Kong, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Cayman Islands with $223 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 115 for the exalted ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka ‘Willie Brown’s Mattress,’ aka the gibbering jackal, aka the screeching screwball, aka the least popular female politician in the country to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border.  It is also Day No. 21 since her one and only visit to the border and since then, she has been seen nowhere near the border.  Meanwhile, the United States is preparing for yet another tidal wave of illegal aliens along the southern border.  (Note- we hope they are laying in minefields, foo gas pits, anti-personnel and anti-vehicle obstacles as well as seeding the desert with rattlesnakes and the Rio Grande with alligator pups and maybe even piranha fish.  We must stop this invasion using any tools we can to defeat it.  How about snipers taking out the human traffickers?
  69. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the statistics for the illegal alien invasion as presented by One America News: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal alien vermin: $506,215,232.  (2) Cost this year of caring for the invaders: $215,300,784,128.  (3) Estimated number of Illegals who have swamped the country just this year: 2,206,660.  Finally, (4) Total Number of Illegals estimated to be in the U.S. (and remember- this is a conservative estimate): 36,206,660.  (Note- since the blog began back in 2009, back then, we estimated the number of illegals to have been around 35-50 million whereas in 2021, we estimate the numbers at or around 75-100 million.  How many of these lowlifes, bottom-feeding riffraff do we have to allow to invade our country and suck its resources dry?).  Rep. Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, calls for a legal response against the FREEZE on border wall funds.  Amen.   Finally, a federal judge threw out DACA meaning the DREAMERS can be scooped up, locked up, and deported as soon transport becomes available.

  71. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams says, ‘avoiding vaccinations and masks is much more dangerous with the Delta variant running amok.’  Uh, okay.  Meanwhile, current U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy says that ‘misinformation is slowing the rollout of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations.’  Oh, wah, wah, wah.  Those who want them can get them and those who don’t won’t.   Speaking of the Chi-Vi, New York Yankees baseball star Aaron Judge tests positive for the ‘VID.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden said today that SOCIAL MEDIA is ‘killing people via the spread of misinformation’ regarding the vaccines.  Not to be outdone, Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky says, ‘beware the pandemic of the unvaccinated.’
  72. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are set to speak at an event in Iowa this weekend.  Next, Governor Chris Sununu, R-NH, appears as though he will launch a U.S. Senate bid what with his slamming of Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, who should be voted out of office.  Governor Sununu says that Senator Hassan has gone to Washington, D.C., and has forgotten about her voters at home.   Meanwhile, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that the infrastructure talks ‘will fall apart’ and that ‘they need to.’
  73. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Comedian Bill Burr blasts the fake news media for its obsessive Trump coverage.  Next, a Fairfax County, Virginia NAACP vice president and PTA official Michelle Leete says that critics of ‘Criminal Race Theory’ should just die.  Here is what she said: “Let’s deny this off-key band of people that are anti-education, anti-teacher, anti-equity, anti-history, anti-racial … anti-opportunities, anti-help people, anti-diversity, [inaudible], anti-science, anti-change agent, anti-social justice, anti-health care, anti-worker, anti-LGBTQ+, anti-children, anti-health care, anti-worker, anti-environment, anti-admissions policy change, anti-inclusion, anti-live and let live – let them die!”  All of the young tatted-up millennials hooted and cheered following the conclusion of this moron’s statement.  People such as she and they need to have their heads ‘set straight.’
  74. 2021 Friday L: Miscellaneous News I– The Michigan state Senate has passed a bill stripping emergency power from out-of-control Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer cannot veto.  About flipping time.  Next, “America’s Governor” Rudy Giuliani says that ONLY Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio can be blamed for rising crime and prostitution in the Big Apple.’  Meanwhile, a GOP group of senators is demanding an infrastructure bill sans the $3.6 trillion price tag the loony tunes Democrats are demanding.
  75. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight, we have Draw #1677 with a $117 million on the line.   Here are the numbers: 24, 25, 47, 52, 57, and Mega 24.  Out of 57,742 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $31,999.
  76. 2021 Friday N: Folks, stick around to see if Joe Biden is going to help the Cuban people in their bid for freedom or if he is going to continue down the path of oppressing the American people?  Obviously, he won’t provide aid to the Cuban people while here at home, COVID-19 oppression is the rule of the day.
  77. 2022 Saturday:  Let’s see what happens today.

[i] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, Mott, the British Lions, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[ii] Not sure when or if we will ever do the music of Loggins and Messina or of each member but if we are still here in 20 years, we most likely will.

[iii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[iv] We hope to celebrate the music of Johnny Winter and his brother, Edgar, at some point in the next two decades. 

[v] It is important to note that Deep State intelligence officials have been spinning all manner of tales as to Trump and the Russians to the point that everyone is confused, especially if they are inattentive.  As we found out in 2019 when the ‘investigation into Trump-Russian collusion’ led by former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller ended, there was never anything to the story, yet people still believe that Trump colluded with the Russians to beat Hillary
Clinton.  Ask yourselves this: WHO would the Russians have wanted in the White House?  Hillary Clinton or Donald J. Trump?  Truthfully?  The answer is simple.  You know it in your heart.

2021 Thursday R: U.S. Senate News I- The U.S. Senate passed a bill today BARRING imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China, the place where Chinese Nazis intern Uighur Muslims. They use them as slave labor as they try to batter them into submission. Good. NO more goods from the Chi-Coms period. Bring the supply chains home. Anyhow, the name of today’s act is the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act- the UFLPA.

[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Puerto Rico: $2.909.  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- St. Lucia: $4.286 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,521,987,904,317 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Taiwan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Hong Kong with $224 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  79. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 114 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris- apparently, the most despised woman in the nation’s capital- to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and to have NOTHING to stem the infestation of millions of illegal aliens flowing into the country.  Today is also her 20th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Still, the nation awaits her ‘second coming.’  Regarding the border, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says of the ongoing border calamity, that it is a ‘true, humanitarian crisis.’  Joe Biden, FIX the problem, stop the invasion.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has given approval for immigration courts to begin dismissing illegal aliens immigration cases.
  80. 2021 Thursday G:  Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– In other border related news, the Biden regime is saying “NO” to Cuban and Haitian entry into the United States even though there is a de facto right to admission for refugees fleeing these toxic hellholes.  Sadly, the U.S. says it has a ‘contingency plan if a tidal wave of Cubans take to the sea and begin heading north to the United States seeking asylum and freedom.  Uh, what are you going to do, Biden regime?  Sink their vessels?  WTF is wrong with the Biden regime?  (Note- it seems as the Democratic-Socialist continue the heavy push towards communism, people fleeing FROM communism are no longer welcome).
  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel came to Washington, D.C., today to meet with the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece.  They had an enjoyable conversation. Former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell said of Merkel that she is ‘naïve when it comes to the Chi-Coms and Russia.’   Next, mourners attended the funeral of slain Haitian leader Jovenel Moise today. 
  82. 2021 Thursday I:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Los Angeles reimposes a mask mandate as COVID-19 variant cases continue to skyrocket.  Could it be happening because of the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens being settled in the City of the Angels?  Los Angeles is requiring ALL citizens- vaccinated and unvaccinated- must wear masks or face the consequences.   Speaking of Chi-Vi vaccines, Joe Biden is reaching out to celebrities to go out and encourage everyone to get the shots NOW.   Elsewhere, South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson says that NO school within their state can force any student to get vaccinated or to show proof of Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations.  In other COVID-19-related news, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky says that it’s ‘within our power to control a fall surge of the Chi-Vi.’
  83. 2021 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– As if Johnson & Johnson is not already drawing fire for the quality of their Wuhan Flu vaccines, the company had to recall numerous spray sunscreens because they contain cancer-causing chemicals.  You didn’t know this before you put them on the market?  Who wants to get a J & J bat flu vaccine now?
  84. 2021 Thursday K:  Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– As disquieting news continues to come out of the Arizona 2020 Election Audit regarding the fraud and criminality that occurred in the Copper State on Election Night and in the subsequent days, House Democratic-Socialists continue trying to derail the process.   Let ‘em try.   Author Michael Wolff says that Fox News Channel gleefully took down President Donald J. Trump by calling Arizona early that night.  Scumbags.
  85. 2021 Thursday L:  Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden continues to draw flak as he continues lying about the 2020 Presidential Election and various states’ efforts at carrying out audits.   Next, Joe Biden says that the ‘U.S. will protect the U.S. embassy in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, but won’t send American troops to help re-establish law and order on the benighted island.
  86. 2021 Thursday M:  Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is calling out the hypocrisy of Senator Bernie Sanders, CPUSA-VT, for not calling the Cuban crisis what it is: the people are sick of communism and are seeking to revolt.     Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the “DOJ, the Biden regime, MUST answer for the alleged crimes of Hunter Biden.”  Amen.  Meanwhile, prosecutors are requesting that the Capitol Hill ‘rioter’ who carried the Trump flag onto the Senate floor does time in prison.’  What is up with these goobers?  Riots went on all last year and the human garbage involved them are out wandering about while patriots swept up in the greatest false flag operation in the history of the United States face years, even decades in federal slammers.  This is NOT America, and that pompous fat ass Gen. Mark Milley has the nerve to call Trump supporters, “Nazis?”  Look in the mirror, general.
  87. 2021 Thursday N:  Political News II– Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, and Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, are blasting House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s January 06, 2021, Select Committee probe as being little more than a flagrant waste of time.  Next, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that the Democrats possess an ’authoritarian impulse.’  We could have told you that, senator.   Moving on, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that the ‘U.S. does not need the U.N.’s help combatting racism in the United States.’   Speaking of racism, Rep. Brad Schneider, D-IL 10th congressional district, finds himself the target of a lawsuit by a female black staffer named Patrice Campbell who claims the work environment is both hostile and racist.   Her supervisor, Karen Davidman apparently told Ms. Campbell to ‘get a rope and put it around her neck’ and then when she complained, was pigeon-holed.  That’s Democrats for you and they call Republicans ‘racists.’  LOL.
  88. 2021 Thursday O:  Political News III– A new Gallup poll says that distrust of Fake News Media is increasing and that appreciation for law enforcement is going up across the country.  Two more heavy-duty blows atop the Democrat scumbags’ shoulders.   (Note- no wonder they are rushing in millions of illegal aliens, folks, using them to REPLACE the American people).  Meanwhile, a new Skynova poll says that 88-percent of the American people are terrified by the skyrocketing inflation being caused by senile old Joe Biden.  Elsewhere, as New York state goes to war against Chick-Fil-A restaurants in its state, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says he will ‘go to war’ for the successful chicken franchise.  Speaking of the Empire State, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov is set to answer questions in the probe swirling around him this weekend.  No wonder the big schmeckel has been quiet lately.   Finally, Rep. Joyce Beatty, DS-OH 3rd congressional district, underwent arrest in Washington, D.C., protesting for voting rights.
  89. 2021 Thursday P: U.S. Supreme Court News I– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer says he has NO intention of retiring anytime soon, much to the dismay of dimwitted morons such as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her ignorant fellow (Suicide) Squad members.  After all, Justice Breyer recently hired at least four new law clerks for next year’s term.  That’s right, sob your eyes out there, AOC.
  90. 2021 Thursday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– We suspect the NFL must be trying to follow the NBA into doing more business in communist China than in the U.S. because the league is promising MORE WOKE social justice messaging in the upcoming season.  Folks, although we may report final scores as we did last year, none of us are going to buy anymore merchandise nor will we watch any more games.  Message to NFL_ “F**k you.”  In 10 years, you will regret your decision.
  91. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate passed a bill today BARRING imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China, the place where Chinese Nazis inter Uighur Muslims.  They use them as slave labor as they try to batter them into submission.  Good.  NO more goods from the Chi-Coms period.  Bring the supply chains home.  Anyhow, the name of today’s act is the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act- the UFLPA.
  92. 2021 Thursday S: Federal and State Court News– Pop singer Britney Spears is now able to hire her own attorney.  That, friends, is a step forward. 
  93. 2021 Thursday T: Fake News I– Alas, the CNN morning show starring Brianna “Whitebitchsplaining” Keillor is tanking, seriously tanking, and it’s easy to see why: puffed up, suck-eyed blowfish lead anchor from Australia comes off as one of the least likeable personalities on any ‘news channel.’  (Note- the answer is to deport her back to Downunder.
  94. 2021 Thursday U: President Donald J. Trump News– America’s President Donald J. Trump gave an “I-told-you-so” as news continues coming out showing that Fox News Channel called the state of Arizona early so as to help the Democrats steal the 2020 Presidential Election.  (Note- we also believe that in the Copper State, Martha McSally would still be a GOP vote in the U.S. Senate.  Lots of shenanigans underfoot on Election night and in the subsequent hours).  Next, President Donald J. Trump and U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy have set a date to meet together in New Jersey.
  95. 2021 Thursday V: Florida State News– Norwegian cruise lines is unhappy with the ban on COVID-19 vaccine passports and is suing the Florida Surgeon General Dr. Scott A. Rivkees, M.D. to get one imposed so they can require them before their passengers can embark on a cruise.   In other Sunshine State news, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis announced today a $106 million civics program as the Democratic-Socialists continue trying to ramrod Criminal Race Theory (Critical Race Theory) down the throats of the people.
  96. 2021 Thursday W: Economic News– The White House is dancing the jig today.  Last week, first-time jobless benefits claims fell from 382,000 the previous week to 360,000 last week.  This is good news?  Atop that we learn that 1.8 million Americans turned down work during the heavy days of the Chi-Vi Wuhan Bat Flu pandemic.
  97. 2022 Friday: This year’s news will appear next year.  Meanwhile, in a couple of weeks, my family and I will be flying to Taipei to vacation on the island of Taiwan.  See you all soon.

[ii] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know.  This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members.   Please stay tuned.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[vii] At the time considered to be a brilliant move on the part of staunch anti-communist Richard M. Nixon, it was a big mistake to normalize any relations with this communist giant when we already had problems with both them and the USSR.  Communist China should have been shunned, stunted, and possibly destroyed.  Look at all the trouble they have caused in the 21st century with all their fetid pandemic diseases created in their biowarfare labs in Wuhan and sent around the world with alacrity. 

[viii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Mick Abrams, Glenn Cornick and Wild Turkey, Blodwyn Pig, and Paris beginning Monday, May 24, 2021, and the presentation is still ongoing.

[ix] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five and a homo twit like Adam Levine.  What a loser, he looks like the flipping illustrated man.

  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.

Currently, Joe is shy 157,666 deaths

[viii]   
  66. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 841,846 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,397 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Mauritania, 132nd country on the list: 20,676 cases of the virus, 487 confirmed deaths and 19,709 confirmed recoveries. [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…

104. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 2022

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

  50. 2002 Sunday: Dictator and thug Hugo Chavez returns to power in Venezuela.  Many people will pay the price for his return.  The people of Venezuela tried to depose this POS, but enough scumbags rallied to his side to save him and put him back in power.
  51. 2003 Monday: It sucks to be a terrorist: in Baghdad, U.S. troops capture a Palestinian POS, Abu Abbas, a man responsible for murdering an American on the cruise ship Achille Lauro, sailing in the Mediterranean when it was commandeered by jihadists.  The scum threw disabled passenger Leon Klinghoffer overboard in his wheelchair.  Brave scumbag.  Hang him.  Elsewhere, near Richmond, California, the headless body of a female and a fetus with the umbilical cord still attached wash up on the shore.  Law enforcement officers test the body for DNA and learn that the remains are those of Laci Peterson and her unborn baby who have been missing from their Modesto, California, home since December 24, 2002.  This would bode ill for her husband and the baby’s father, Scott Peterson.
  52. 2004 Wednesday: In a historic policy shift, President George W. Bush endorsed Israel’s plan to hold on to part of the West Bank in any final peace settlement with the Palestinians.  He also ruled out Palestinian refugees returning to Israel, bringing strong criticism from the scumbag Palestinians.
  53. 2005 Thursday: Near the Palestinian town of Nablus, Israeli troops whack a member of the terrorist group, Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, who was preparing to launch an attack into Israel.  Israeli officials placed blame for the incident squarely atop the shoulders of the Palestinian garbage running the show in Gaza City.  These people are all jihadists and jihadists must be whacked wherever discovered.  Excellent work, Israel!
  54. 2006 Friday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad meeting with Hamas officials at a conference on Palestinian statehood blasts the Israeli government as being a dying, rotten tree, one that will disappear with the first storm.’  Israel is still there, and Ahmadinejad is full of fecal matter.  Elsewhere, Chad severs ties with the Sudan after Islamist rebels from Chad carry out an attack within their own country, killing at least 350 people and wounding countless others.  Chad points the finger of blame directly at Khartoum which remains mum.
  55. 2007 Saturday: Not that it did any good, 200,000 people take to the streets in Ankara, Turkey, protesting against the possible candidacy of want-to-be dictator for life, incumbent Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  The POS is still there in 2020.   
  56. 2008 Monday: Delta Airlines Incorporation and Northwest Airlines Corporation announced they were merging.   Elsewhere, the U.S. is beginning to occupy its brand-spanking new $736 billion embassy in Baghdad, Iraq.  The facility is about the size of the Vatican City and can reportedly withstand any assault by terrorists.  We shall see.   Meanwhile, the World Food Bank announces a plethora of new emergency measures with which to combat the rising costs of food prices.  People in the developing world are running amok in the streets, having food riots, attacking stores and warehouses.  It’s getting ugly out there.
  57. 2009 Tuesday: In a big day for Somali pirates, the scum seize four ships taking 60 hostages.  Elsewhere, North Korea said it was restarting its rogue nuclear program (what else is new?), booting U.N. inspectors and pulling out of disarmament talks in an angry reaction to U.N. Security Councils condemnation of its April 15 rocket launch.
  58. 2010 Wednesday: The Vatican finds itself in the hotseat when a top cardinal within the church links homosexuality with pedophilia in discussions over the recent wave of sex scandals threatening the institution.  You know, if the shoe fits; still, whether the Roman Catholic Church knows it or not, everyone is beginning to get WOKE.  Some things you can say and others you can’t and what the cardinal said is one of the bad ones…in other news, whispers are coming out of the White House that President Barack Hussein Obama is going to debut a new plan with which to send American astronauts to Mars.  Supposedly, this will occur tomorrow.  The funny thing is that NOT long after he became president, he scrapped NASA’s plans for returning astronauts to the moon.  He wanted the money for his bogus social re-engineering programs.
  59. 2011 Thursday: President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy publish an op-ed in a global newspaper- International Herald Tribune– in which the three leaders share their vision on how best to end the Libyan Civil War, one these guys sort of had a hand in starting and now like George W. Bush and his ill-fated Iraq War 2003, once they broke it, they own it.
  60. 2012 Saturday: The U.S., Russia, and China begin talks on Iran’s nuclear program.  Elsewhere, South Korean naval vessels search the Yellow Sea on the lookout for a failed North Korean missile test which went down into the ocean shortly after launch.
  61. 2013 Sunday: In anticipation of Croatia becoming a full-fledged member of the European Union, the nation selects its first MPs through an election.   Elsewhere, following the death of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez (died March 05), Venezuelans go to the polls for a snap presidential election.   Meanwhile, South Korean continues putting out feelers to its counterparts in the North which are rebuffed yet again.  Light ‘em up, civilized world, light those North Koreans up.  
  62. 2014 Monday: According to Brainy History, the Washington Post and The Guardian win the Pulitzer Prize for reporting of surveillance programs by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA); the investigations relied on thousands of documents leaked by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor.  Elsewhere, folks waiting at a bus station outside the Nigerian capital city of Abuja have a horrible day when twin bombings occur.  According to Al Jazeera, at least 71 people are sent to meet their Maker while at least another 120 probably wish they could.  Once again, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.
  63. 2015 Tuesday: President Barack Hussein Obama meets with Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi to discuss the ongoing fight against the Islamic State.  The American president says he will send the nation ‘humanitarian aid’ but in his usual ‘f**k this’ attitude, will not commit to sending the beleaguered nation military supplies.
  64. 2016 Thursday: Palestinians are always causing trouble and today is no different.  In Jerusalem, Israeli law enforcement catch two Palestinian 12-year-old boys who had an assortment of knives concealed within their clothing.  Off they went to the Hoosegow.  Meanwhile, near Hebron, a Palestinian extremist attacks an Israeli soldier with an axe but who is then shot dead for his troubles.  Piss on them.  Elsewhere, the Chinese announce they are going to prosecute 357 of its citizens for the illegal sale of vaccines.  What kind of vaccines? 
  65. 2017 Friday: Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, already serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder, was acquitted in Boston in a 2012 double-homicide that prosecutors claimed was fueled by his anger over a drink spilled on him at a nightclub.  Five days later, Hernandez supposedly hanged himself in his prison cell.   Elsewhere, European vessels plying the waters off of the Libyan coast come upon another floundering load of Sub-Saharan African ‘migrants’ and yank 2,000 of them out of the water.  
  66. 2018 Saturday: Terrorists attack an Egyptian army outpost in the Sinai today killing several soldiers.  At least 12-14 jihadis ran amok, four of them detonating suicide vests as they grappled with the soldiers.  At least 8 Egyptian soldiers lost their lives in the skirmish.  Further north, problems continue along the border between Israel and Gaza.  A visiting delegation of Egyptian leaders encourage the Palestinians to call off their ‘Great March of Return.’  This event witnesses Hamas sending out cannon fodder to engage with the Israeli Defense Forces so people can get killed and Hamas can then point fingers at Israel.  We say, stop giving the Palestinians money.  Period.
  67. 2019 Sunday: Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a woman with numerous problems, finds herself at the center of controversy yet again after comments made at a 9/11 speech come to light in which, she tries to cover up the role of Islam in bringing down the Twin Towers.  President Donald J. Trump hammers the skank while- shock of shocks- Nancy Pelosi rushes to her defense.  Boot both women out of Congress.
  68. 2020 Tuesday: Today, former President Barack Hussein Obama endorsed his former vice president, “Pro-China Joe” Biden for the 2020 presidential nomination of the Democratic Party.  He did so via social media.  Mr. Obama joins the Chinese taskmasters running the Biden campaign in selecting the ‘right man for the job’ should he win in November (which he won’t).  Meanwhile, the Kung Flu- aka COVID-19, aka coronavirus, aka Wuhan Virus, aka Wuhan Flu, aka Wuhan Virus Crisis- continues claiming lives and causing economic destruction wherever it occurs.  Current statistics show a total of 1,968,943 confirmed cases with 123,783 confirmed deaths and 464,135 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have a total (at the time of this update) 598,737 confirmed cases what with 24,770 confirmed deaths and 38,015 confirmed recoveries.  We must thank our Chinese ‘friends’ for giving us the gift that won’t stop giving.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China, thank you.
  69. 2020 Tuesday A: As of this evening, the world has 1,981,239 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus Crisis what with 126,681 confirmed deaths and 486,622 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, 614,416 confirmed cases and 29,897 confirmed deaths and 48,036 confirmed recoveries.  Now, get this, the People’s Republic of China claims to have 84,393 confirmed cases, 3.342 deaths and 78,877 confirmed recoveries.  Amazing is it not?  The U.S. State Department estimates that in truth, at least 2.2 million to 2.5 million fatalities connected to this lab-engineered, diabolical virus and yet, they claim it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announces that he will put a hold on the money the United States gives to the World Health Organization.  About time, Mr. President, about time.  How about putting an American into the place of Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus?  That makes more sense than having a Third World toady for China in the gig.
  70. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 137,847,272 confirmed cases, +1,000,476, 2,965,199  confirmed deaths, +16,103, and 78,548,136 confirmed recoveries, +612,509.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,608,413 confirmed cases, UP 165,799 from yesterday’s reporting, 569,556 confirmed deaths, UP 1,662, and 119,010,784 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.

  72. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,706,728 confirmed cases, 60,507 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,141,686 confirmed cases, 34,164 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,175 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 381,537 confirmed cases, 5,391 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Utah, the home of a bunch of rebellious Mormons who dressed up like Native Americans and attacked settlers on the Oregon Trail: they have 391,177 confirmed cases, 2,161 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii]

  77. 2021 Wednesday G: WASHINGTON, D.C. STATEHOOD– a recent poll says that of all 50 states and Washington, D.C., the latter is viewed as the absolute worst place to live and work.  Speaking of statehood, 22 Republican state attorney-generals are suing the Biden administration saying that statehood for the nation’s capital is unconstitutional which it is.  The nation’s capital was meant to be an independent federal district.  Perhaps they should return the real estate given to the district by the surrounding states back to the donors.  There.  Problem solved.  They can pay taxes to the states.  Ah, well, the House Oversight Committee is going to vote on a bill- H.R. 51- authorizing D.C. statehood later in the week.  Still, Democrats are facing cries of “HYPOCRISY” over the court-packing scheme seeing as how they were against it before they were for it. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday H: JOE BIDEN NEWS I– The ‘Biden administration’ is pushing to protect the nation’s power grid as hacking efforts intensify.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she of the pendulous breasts that droop down past her waistline, has invited bewildered old Joe Biden to address a joint session of Congress on April 28.  This we got to see!   Meanwhile, critics lambasting Joe Biden’s SCOTUS commission on packing the court could favor adding additional left-wing justices to an already inept court thanks to the commission being one-sided.  (Note- we suspected this from the start).  Next, Joe Biden says that ALL U.S. troops will be out of Afghanistan, not by May 1, 2021, as President Donald J. Trump planned but on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001: September 11, 2021.[xv]  However, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns is pushing back on this announcement.[xvi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: CRIME AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE NEWS– The judge in the Derek Chauvin murder trial today refused a motion to dismiss the case.  Meanwhile, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, Police Officer Kim Potter was arrested today and charged with second degree manslaughter in the accidental shooting death of thug Duante Wright.  Police in the city also had to put barricades around her family’s home seeing as how rioting has been ongoing there now for three days.  Last night, law enforcement arrested another 60 people rioting and running amok in the streets.  We say, “Shoot them and re-establish law and order in your city.”   In other criminal justice news, Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff died in federal prison at age 83.  In doing so, he was able to beat serving his 150-year prison sentence.  C’ est la vie.  Finally, as the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin continues, a defense expert testifies that Mr. Floyd did not die from Officer Chauvin’s actions but from a heart rhythm problem.  (Interesting note- a report says that NYPD officers stood by as four MS-13 gangbangers loaded a dead body into the trunk of their vehicle).
  80. 2021 Wednesday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, has put forth a Trump-like bill, the “Red Tape Reduction Act,” a bill that would seek to cut regulations and rules.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Julia Letlow, R-LA 5th congressional district, put her hand on the Holy Bible today and took the oath of office as the newest member of the U.S. House of Representatives.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is continuing with Florida’s lawsuit against the Joe Biden regime over its crazy Immigrations and Customs Enforcement policies.  Illegal aliens MUST GO!  Speaking of the border, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is supposed to visit Mexico and Guatemala within the next ‘several weeks.’  Uh, okay, we have a CATASTROPHE on our southern border there, phony VP.  Finally, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer plans to move forward with the Biden administration’s infrastructure bill early next week, the one that will cost more than $2 trillion, money mostly borrowed from communist China.  (Note- Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says that “Cryin’ Chuck” is not reaching out to Republican lawmakers for their input.  Say what?)
  81. 2021 Wednesday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Capitol Hill officer who shot and killed 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt during the January 06, 2021, FALSE FLAG operation, aka the infamous Capitol Hill Riots- of that ill-fated day will face NO charges whatsoever even though film makes it clear there was no reason for such an incident to have occurred.  Good to have friends in high places, folks.  Next, major U.S. corporations are all banding together to thwart the new voting laws seeking to infuse more honesty and openness into the laws so that what happened on November 03, 2020, does not occur again; namely, stealing a presidential election and giving it to a horrible candidate, creepy old Joe Biden.  Elsewhere, several GOP senators are seeking to strip Major League Baseball of its anti-trust protections.  Kick MLB to the curb.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– The Biden administration is going to honor the terms of the deal made by President Donald J. Trump and the United Arab Emirates.  The sale of advanced U.S. warplanes will proceed.   Next, the U.S. Senate votes 53-45 to confirm Gary Gensler as the next head of Securities and Exchange Commission.  Meanwhile, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that Joe Biden is swiftly moving illegal aliens apprehended along the southern border and is moving them into the heartland of the country.  There is NO vetting, NO testing for diseases, NO background checks for criminal activity, and thus Old Joe is fueling the demise for the country at a later date.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV– The Democrats are preparing to release a new plan with which to expand the U.S. Supreme Court from nine seats to 13.  This is indeed ‘packing the courts,’ something Joe Biden swore upon the head of Satan (just kidding) he would NEVER do.  Congressman Ted Budd, R-NC 13th congressional district, says a constitutional amendment is required with which to fix the number of justices at nine.  Meanwhile, Congressman Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Major League Baseball is punishing the people it claims to be helping.’  Next, the Dems have another plan, one into which they will pour another $50 billion to eradicate student loan debt.  This will wipe out the debt for 36 million of our fellow Americans.  Good.  Elsewhere, former President George W. Bush laments that he did not pass comprehensive immigration reform when HE was president.  How about enforcing the laws? 
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– “Bachelor” star Colton Underwood comes as gay.  Big whoop.  Next, Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl are working on an anthem for the COVID-19 era.  Meanwhile, Parler says that Amazon is throwing mud at them by claiming they are doing everything they can to cover up ownership.   Speaking of Amazon, they are pledging to promote more women and blacks.  Elsewhere, the state of Arizona is revamping sex-ed rules in the wake of all the LGBTQIA+ bulls**t being forced down the throats of American students.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II–  We learn that $174 billion of the infrastructure bill proposed by President Joe Biden is going to the Chinese.  We need them to mine and manufacture rare earth minerals so we can drive electric cars.  Good going, Joe.  Next, Stephen Miller says that “America First Legal” is aiding the states in suing the Biden administration.  Moving on, a new department of the U.S. Treasury will oversee COVID-19 relief.  Boy, talk about a major slush fund for the Left!   Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, tells Newsmax that IF Trump runs in 2024, he will be the nominee.   Next, Joe Biden- never one to pander- is appointing a liaison to the American Asian-Pacific Islanders community seeing as how black Democrats are attacking Asian Democrats.  Someone has to help make nice.  Erika Moritsugu will get the gig.  Finally, experts say (and they are right) that California is not prepared for another catastrophic fire season.  True, absolutely true, thanks to liberal mismanagement and inattention.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– the United States and Germany are warning Russia to pull back from Ukraine’s borders.  The Biden administration plans to slap new sanctions atop Vladimir Putin and the Russian government.  Let’s see what that does.  Meanwhile, experts say that thanks to U.S. stupidity, we have built the Chi-Com military for them via the lopsided trade disparities as well as permitting to steal everything they can get their thieving hands on.  Wow.
  87. 2021 Wednesday Q: LOTTERY RESULTS–  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3551: 07, 10, 20, 28, 33, and Mega 15.  Out of 114,696 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers BUT NO Mega for a prize of $10,170 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Foremost Liquor, South Pasadena, CA 91030 (2) United Oil, Ontario, CA 91761 (3) Cig Zone, Indio, CA 92201 and (4) Bonfare Market, San Jose, CA 95135.   Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #837: 13, 30, 33, 45, 61, and Power 14.  Out of 46,599 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball $5,142 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 565,609 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J.

  93. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.719 per gallon, $4.016 in Florida, $5.238 in Hawaii, and $4.654 in Washington state.[xxiv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Iowa- $3.796.  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 16th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Yemen: $2.137 per U.S. Gallon.[xxv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,384,833,492,283 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvi]  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 Netherlands the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland.  This nation holds $51,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).  
  94. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Governor Greg Abbott is hammering out agreements with various Mexican state governors to stop the flow of the Biden-Harris illegals into the Lone Star State.  If the Mexican governors fail to provide security along their shared borders, every single vehicle crossing the border heading north will be stopped and inspected.  Billions of dollars of revenues will be lost which hopefully will propel the governors to doing the right thing.  IF the Biden-Harris regime won’t do the job, Texas will.  Hopefully, Arizona and New Mexico will follow suit leaving California to bear the brunt of illegal aliens alone. Okay, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is a shocking $662,179,656.  The cost of caring for them since these two losers took charge is $42,408,255,399.  Wow.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since January 01, 2022, is in our estimation 1,057,658.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is 46,479,144. We believe the number of illegals is closer to 85-to-100 million which is a detestable number.  Round ‘em up, imprison them, and then deport them after they work off their transgressions. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  95. 2022 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Finland and Sweden are seeking fast-track membership in NATO which has led the tottering Putin regime in Russia to threaten a build-up of its nuclear forces if the two neutral nations become the newest members of NATO.  In more unwelcome news for Russia, however, Ukraine sank Russia’s Black Sea flagship- the Moskva– with a land-to-sea missile.  Belching smoke and flames, the vessel went to the bottom with sailors leaping into the sea.  In an attempt to cover up the disaster, Moscow claimed sailors smoking cigarettes somehow sank the ship- which, if true- is worse than the ship being sunk via a missile.  What can go wrong for the Putin regime next?  We suspect that the military and intelligence leadership is NOT going to permit much more of these disasters to continue.  President Putin had better keep his back to the wall at all times; otherwise, someone is going to come up behind him and cap him.  It’s what Russians do.  (Note- this is so reminiscent of the Winter War of 1939- the Finns beat the living crap out of the Russians).

  101. 2022 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I- Information continues to arise linking the FBI not only to the events of January 06, 2021, but to the ‘plot’ to kidnap one of America’s absolute worst governors, Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI.  Last week, virtually everyone charged by the feds was either acquitted or had a mistrial which blows the government’s case out of the water.  Julie Kelly reports that regarding January 06, 2021, i.e., the INSURRECTION, there were more than 1,000 FBI agents, informants, and/or stooges in the crowd inciting the ensuing mayhem.  This is disturbing and the FBI must undergo a massive purification to remove the leftist losers causing inner rot within the once proud organization.  Our advice to anyone faced with an interview with the FBI: ask for a lawyer and then go silent.  Period.   Remember: the few remaining good apples are tainted by the multitudes of bad ones.
  102. 2022 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II- Apparently, the Biden White House is struggling with how much information to provide the Ukrainians.   Next, the Biden White House indicts a Russian legislator and two aides operating in the U.S. whom they claim are running an anti-Ukrainian propaganda site in the U.S.  Next, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns says, ‘don’t count out Russia using nukes in Ukraine.’  Good to know.   Next, the Biden regime is preparing a crackdown on those seeking to evade regime-imposed sanctions on Russia.  Good to know, too.
  103. 2022 Thursday M: Political News I- A new poll says that a large majority of Americans do not believe gun control will stop mass shootings.   Next, BIG DEMOCRAT DONOR from Los Angeles, California, the disgusting Ed Buck- longtime close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Obamas– has received 30 years for his crack-induced overdose deaths of young black men he enticed into his home to have sex with him.  Good riddance to a POS.   Another close friend of the Clintons- attorney Michael Sussman- watched his request for his Russia-collusion scam case to be dropped- swatted aside.  The Durham investigation is going to go after this scumbag on the ladder up to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  104. 2022 Thursday N: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News- Pro-Death proponents in Florida are going insane what with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis signing into law a bill banning ALL abortions after 15 weeks.  Whatever happened to birth control, i.e., ‘the pill?’  It used to be everyone sought to prevent pregnancy rather than to murder the outcome of a pregnancy.  Something is wrong in a country when it murders its unborn and seeks to replace the mass genocide of its young people with illegal aliens.  (Note- I am so glad I now live abroad.  Israel values ALL life, not just those that are ‘convenient’).
  105. 2022 Thursday O: Big Tech News- Elon Musk has put up a $43 billion bid with which to buy Twitter and put it back on the path towards FREE SPEECH.  Of course, the left in America and around the world is going bonkers.  Who knows?  Maybe Elon will launch a hostile takeover of Meta-Facebook.  Now that would be something.  Time to round up all these tech moguls and send them to Devil’s Island for all the harm they’ve caused the world.
  106. 2022 Thursday P: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.

  52. 2019 Saturday: The Covington High School kids from Kentucky are at the U.S. Capitol on this date wearing MAGA hats and celebrating America.  As they celebrate, the Black Hebrew Israelites, a hate group, is calling them all manner of vile and despicable names.  This does not dampen their celebration.   This is when an aged Indian chief named Nathan Phillips, a man who supposedly served with distinction in Vietnam, a member of the Indigenous Peoples’ March, stirs up trouble with the kids.  The phony Indian chieftain intruded into the mass of the young kids, banging his drum and chanting war songs, and got right into the face of young Sandman who stood silently and reverently.  The news media would slant the incident into making the high schoolers a bunch of racist bigots and lovers of the KKK which shocked the ENTIRE PLANET!  However, approximately two years later after attorney Linn Wood went after the Fake News Media, young Mr. Sandman would become fabulously wealthy after the New York Times and several TV channels had to pay tens of millions of dollars for defamation and slander.

  55. 2021 Tuesday: A Politico poll (note- Politico is extremely far-left in its politics) suggests that 1-in-5 Republicans want President Trump convicted in his second impeachment trial.  This also means that 4-in-5 Republicans do NOT want to see him convicted so which number makes more sense to you?  One-in-five Republicans are RINOs and should be expelled from the party.  Period.  Speaking of the inaccuracy of political polls, Gallup reports that ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s favorability among the American people stands at 57-percent.  Everyone with half a brai
