The floor is imploding below our president’s feet- he wants vaccine mandates and federal contractors, big businesses, and many states are saying, “NO!”

b. As federal contractors building ships say they ‘won’t enforce’ the Biden administration’s vaccine mandates, as Disneyworld, and other big businesses rebuff the Biden administration on its demand EVERYONE undergo vaccination, Dr. Tony Fauci says vaccines will soon be available for babies. Babies! BABIES! What the hell is going on in our government?

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 357

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-FIVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME

324. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2021, UPDATE A:

The floor is imploding below our president’s feet- he wants vaccine mandates and federal contractors, big businesses, and many states are saying, “NO!”   

  1.  2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 257,433,040 confirmed cases, +467,740, 5,163,714 confirmed deaths, +8,124 and 232,383,182 confirmed recoveries, +390,130. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 48,558,229 confirmed cases, UP 36,633 from yesterday’s reporting, 793,539 confirmed deaths, UP +2,447,[i] and 38,437,852 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,043. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]   
  2. 2021 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 479,159 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop him.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump with 75,441 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.   Joe IS ‘the president of record’ for the most pandemic deaths connected directly to his ineffective hands and his good buddy, dictator for life, Xi Jinping.  Shame, Joe and Xi, shame.    
  3. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,912,272 confirmed cases, 73,976 confirmed deaths, and 4,838,296 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,726,720 confirmed cases, 61,081 confirmed deaths, and 3,505,864 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 86,740 confirmed cases, 1,002 confirmed deaths, and 85,738 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 765,422 confirmed cases, 9,165 confirmed deaths, and 324,219 confirmed recoveries (every week, these mopes in Washington state close up shop and don’t report fresh numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., North Carolina: they have 1,514,879 confirmed cases, 18,597 confirmed deaths, and 1,466,246 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2021 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,340,084 confirmed cases, 8,154 confirmed deaths, and 1,326,697 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Sri Lanka, 58th country on the list: 555,929 cases of the virus, 14,108 confirmed death and 526,353 confirmed recoveries.[iv]     
  5. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,601.98, DOWN 268.97 points (-0.75%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 16,057.44 UP 63.73 points (+0.40%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,697.96, DOWN 6.58 points (-0.14%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $75.68 per barrel, -2.73 (-3.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,846.80 per troy oz., -14.60 (-0.78%) while the price of SILVER is $24.63 per troy ounce, -0.27 (-1.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,035.90 per troy oz, -20.50 (-1.94%) while the price of COPPER is $4.40 per pound, +0.09 (+2.18%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,061.71 per troy oz., -71.26 (-3.34%). The price of RHODIUM is $14,350.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,045,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,679.50 per USD/T, +63.50 (+2.43%).[vi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.89 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.82.    In Mozambican Metical, one greenback equals 63.18 and in Myanmar Kyat, a buck equal 1,763.00 and in Namibian Dollar, one dollar equals 15.72 of theirs.[vii]        
  6. 2021 Friday 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 $4.704 per gallon, $3.356 in Florida, $4.353 in Hawaii, and $3.875 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Missouri: $3.077.  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 47th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Uzbekistan: $3.578 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,977,472,892,075 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 Grand Cayman Island with $225,000,000 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.
  7. 2021 Saturday F: Foreign News-Overseas News I- While we hate to say this-those of us who are Democrats- President Joseph R. Biden’s mixed messages on defending/not defending Taiwan are setting the stage for a full-blown People’s Liberation Army invasion of Taiwan.  While most of us don’t believe it would succeed- at first- the loss of lives and destruction would be tremendous, especially if Taiwan does have nuclear weapons, as rumored.  Still, the U.S. under President Joe Biden announced the opening of high-level talks with their Chinese military counterparts.
  8. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News-Overseas News II- The United Kingdom has criminalized Hamas within their country and anyone who provides them support of any kind, whether in print, in funds, or in actions will go to prison.  Right on!   In other news, the Dutch are in the streets protesting the return of COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions.  Elsewhere, even as our borders are being overrun with millions of illegal aliens, Ukraine is requesting the Biden administration help them defend their borders from the Russians.
  9. 2021 Saturday H: Health and Medical Alerts- Holy moly, the Centers for Disease Control inserted another dagger into the COVID-19 vaccine mandate when it came out and said that there are no recorded cases of people with natural immunity transmitting the virus to others.’  Say what? Doctors in the Sunshine State, meanwhile, are pushing back on Chi-Vi vaccines for young kids.  They are saying this is crazy.   Still the Food and Drug Administration has granted requests from Pfizer and Moderna to begin pushing boosters onto the American people.  (Note- whether we want to believe it or not, this is insane and WHY we at the AICPENDBLOG.COM say “FOLLOW THE MONEY!”). As if to add more proof to our theory on ‘following the money,’ Dr. Tony Fauci says that ‘vaccines (and this is crazy)- will soon be available to BABIES.’  WTF![xi]
  10. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- Again, things continue going from bad to worse for Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates as a major U.S. Navy shipbuilding contractor in Newport News, Virginia, has canceled the COVID-19 vaccine mandate imposed on them by President Biden.   And so, it goes… and they’re not the only ones.  Disneyworld in Florida has suspended the vaccine mandate for all employees.  Wow.  However, even as other entities across the country are saying “NO” to vaccine mandates, the U.S. Army is forcing out soldiers who refuse to take these experimental vaccines.  What is happening to our military?
  11. 2021 Saturday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- Again, things continue going from bad to worse for Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates as a major U.S. Navy shipbuilding contractor in Newport News, Virginia, has canceled the COVID-19 vaccine mandate imposed on them by President Biden.   And so, it goes… and they’re not the only ones.  Disneyworld in Florida has suspended the vaccine mandate for all employees.  Wow.  However, even as other entities across the country are saying “NO” to vaccine mandates, the U.S. Army is forcing out soldiers who refuse to take these experimental vaccines.  What is happening to our military?
  12. 2021 Saturday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II- As protests continue erupting around the world against COVID-19 lockdowns, restrictions, and oppression, governments are doubling down.  It appears that governments are in synch in attempting to hasten in the NEW WORLD ORDER.  Will the one-world-government hacks win, or will the people destroy them, and a new era of peace, love, and freedom descend across the globe?   (It is interesting to note that cases of COVID-19 are rising in the Midwest- or so health authorities report- which means are we going to see problems at election time next year?  One ‘2020’ was enough).
  13. 2021 Saturday L: Political News I- Progressive senators are urging President Joseph R. Biden NOT to appoint Jerome Powell to another term as head of the Federal Reserve.  Meanwhile, the DCCC raised $11.6 million in the month of October.  (Note- I doubt the amount of money we are raising is going to help us win any victories in 2022.  You can smell the disaster brewing on the horizon.  Just saying- Chef Roland)[xii].  Next, Bill Maher lit into Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, and her stupid WOKE policies that according to him are destroying the party and invited the little communist to come on his program.  Ouch.
  14. 2021 Saturday M: Political News II- The ever-amusing Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, said of Build Back Better that it’s ‘a festival of bad ideas.’  Speaking of Build Back Better, a new Trafalgar/Convention of States poll says that ’58-percent of American voters believe it will harm the U.S. economy.’  Next, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin says that ‘under his watch, Iran will NOT get nuclear weapons’ (which means they will).  Next, the U.S. House Transportation Committee wants data on FAA oversight of the Boeing 787 airliner.
  15. 2021 Saturday N: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I- A Philadelphia delivery driver shot two punks trying to rob his vehicle.  Good for him.  It’s becoming the ‘wild west’ out there with various cities failing to maintain law and order in the streets.  In other crime news, the New York Times has uncovered a story connecting Hunter Biden to a Chinese company seeking to buy a cobalt mine in Africa.  Wow.
  16. 2021 Saturday O: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3614 what with a $36 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 27, 28, 35, 45, and Mega 03.  Out of 112,230 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO mega for a prize of $38,837.  The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in San Jose, CA, 95133.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #913 with a jackpot of $205 million up for grabs: 40, 43, 48, 59, 69, and Power 19.  Out of 86,324 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,059.
  17. 2021 Saturday P: Wokeism-Woke-Wokies- Anti-Kyle Rittenhouse trial verdict protests have broken out across the United States and in Portland, Oregon, became violent riots.  Speaking of the trial, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says that the ‘Rittenhouse verdict was a win for the nation.’  Next, famed legal professor and legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz said of the leftwing media attacking Kyle Rittenhouse, his whiteness, and his tears that the ‘media are the racists.’ IF government at all levels would reclaim the streets, the country would be a much nicer, safer place.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Fairport Convention- “In Real Time: Live’ 87”- (December 21, 1987)- we have down as a live album albeit sleight of hand in that it’s a live studio recording with crowd noises added later.  We have seen other bands do this and at times it works whereas at others, it doesn’t.  This one is rather in the middle, good collection of tunes but label it ‘raw in the studio.’  Ah, well, it still is worth ownership by you.  On the album are the following musicians: (1) Maartin Allcock (numerous stringed instruments, keyboards, and vocals) (2) Dave Pegg (basses, guitars, and vocals) (3) Ric Sanders (violins) (4) Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and keyboards). If you are interested, seek it out and if not, oh, well, there are loads of other albums to pick up by the band and enjoy.  We thank you for giving us the chance to promote it to you.

[xi] Speaking of Dr. Fauci, he is receiving a barrage of phone calls regarding his torturing of puppies and other mammals in foreign medical research laboratories.  Personally, we’re surprised no one from Peta hasn’t taken him out on the street yet.

[xii] Speaking of the DCCC, they are receiving much deserved blowback for having spewed misinformation on the shooting of Jacob Blake by saying he was killed by a white man when the sucker is still alive albeit in a wheelchair.  Look, enough bad things occur in this country but my party must stop spreading BULLSHIT.  STOP IT

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, LET’S GIVE JOE A CHANCE!

Our enemies have maneuvered the U.S. into the pickle in which it finds itself by having stolen our elections in November 2020 and the ‘Biden whisperer,’ Barack Obama, seems to have abandoned his proxy to the wolves…

Every day, things get worse in Afghanistan, and everyone acts shocked by the disaster unfolding there. However, having listened to Lara Logan discuss events with Tucker Carlson, it should be clear to everyone that the U.S. government- no matter what pindejos like Secretary Lloyd Austin and General Mark A. Milley claim, they knew this was going to happen well in advance so what the hell? Get our people out NOW!

  8. 2021 Wednesday G: AFGHANISTAN CRISIS AND COLLAPSE NEWS II- The U.S. State Department announced today that IT CANNOT secure the road into Hamid Karzai International Airport so that Americans can evacuate the collapsing country.  “Shelter in place” is what they are telling American citizens.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban are extremely emboldened by Joe Biden’s failures.’  Next, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and chairperson of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley addressed reporters today.  Neither one is very illustrious but the political general- Milley- lied bald-faced and unabashedly to reporters when he claimed- get this- ‘the U.S. didn’t see this coming.’  The liar also says that ‘U.S. troops CANNOT help Americans make it to the airport to escape the country.’  What a POS.  Meanwhile, Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassan told Newsmax that ‘Joe Biden halted President Donald J. Trump’s crisis response’ program in Afghanistan.
  9. 2021 Wednesday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Amigos, hoy dia is the 148th day since El Jefe Joe Biden appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be his ‘border czar’ as well as her 54th day since her sole visit to the border.  Tragic.  Next, here are the numbers as compiled by OAN daily.  First, here is the cost for this day alone of caring for the cast-offs of the world: $535,997,088.  Second, here is the horrible cost for just this year of caring for the invaders: $251,494,957,056.  Third, here are the numbers of the illegals that have made it into our country this year: 2,577,622.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative effort for the illegal alien invaders running amok in our country: 36,577,620.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).[xii] 
  10. 2021 Wednesday I: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II- Speaking of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster, cross-border shootings from Mexico on U.S. Border Patrol agents are on the increase as the cartels continue ‘feeling their oats’ with the lawlessness afflicting the region.  Next, a new poll says that a vast majority of the American people favor the immigration policies of President Donald J. Trump compared to the lack of any of the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is trying to slash the numbers of ‘asylum cases’ along the southern border.  This means look for MORE illegal aliens coming to a town or city near you.
  11. 2021 Wednesday J: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS I- The Chi-Coms are deploying numerous warships to the Taiwan Straits and are telling Taipei that “Joe Biden is not coming to protect you.”  The Biden regime then vowed to support Taiwan after the Chi-Coms said what they said.  (Note- we do not believe Joe Biden even knows WHAT Taiwan is much less WHERE it is).  Elsewhere, the Russians were testing a prototype military transport plane that sadly went down, killed both pilots and the flight engineer outside Moscow.
  12. 2021 Wednesday K: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- Chicago to bring back indoor mask mandates for ALL citizens.   Next, Joe Biden is going to require that ALL NURSING HOME STAFF must be fully vaccinated, or they cannot work.  Elsewhere, Disneyworld tweaked its mask policy to allow visitors to go without masks when outdoors in their theme parks.  Next, unvaccinated students at Quinnipiac University face fines and loss of internet privileges.  Finally, parents in Louisiana are rebelling against Governor John Bel Edwards’ harsh mask measures in the state’s schools.  Stand and fight, people, stand and fight.
  13. 2021 Wednesday L: VACCINE MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY) NEWS- (1) Pfizer $49.33 (2) AstraZeneca $59.44 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.26 (4) BioNTech $363.99 (5) Moderna $398.80.  The reason we compile these numbers for our readers is so that you can understand WHY there is this ongoing push for everyone to get vaccinated, get vaccinated again, and now get flipping booster shots, thus, the politicians invest in these companies.  When the federal government buys vaccines and distributes them free not just to the American people but to illegal frigging aliens and to countries around the world that hate our guts, the profit levels soar by as much as 1,000-percent.  The stock dividends pour millions of dollars into the pockets of every politician invested in these companies.  It is your classic money-go-round, all money leads back to our political leaders of both parties.  As if right on cue, U.S. officials are calling for ALL Americans to begin getting booster shots in September, eight months after their second vaccination, so as to ‘protect them’ from the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  14. 2021 Wednesday M: MILITARY SUPPLIERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 2) NEWS- (1) Raytheon: $85.48 (2) General Dynamics: $196.60 (3) Boeing: $219.09 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.68 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $363.16.  Ditto what we said in the prior segment.  Politicians decry the companies producing the ‘weapons of war’ yet invest heavily in them.  This is a shame, and all elected leaders should undergo automatic banning from investing in companies that win big fat government contracts.  
  15. 2021 Wednesday N: VOTING INTEGRITY-FRAUDULENT AND STOLEN ELECTION NEWS-  The FBI is joining an election machine hacking probe in the great state of Colorado.  Meanwhile, Georgia approves of a Fulton County election audit where loads of election fraud occurred last year.
  16. 2021 Wednesday O: PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP NEWS- Regarding the disaster ongoing in Afghanistan, President Donald J. Trump says our nation has ‘never been so humiliated as it now is.’  President Trump had much more to say about the usurper living in the White House, senile old fool that the invader is: “Joe Biden destroyed respect for the U.S. by abandoning Afghanistan in a mess and it makes the country much more vulnerable than ever.”  The President’s son, Donald J. Trump Jr. told Newsmax that the ‘Taliban waited for a weakling to be in the White House before they did what they did.’
  17. 2021 Wednesday P: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- As Afghanistan worsens by the minute, Joe Biden’s ‘once HIGH (we do not believe this) approval ratings went from around 54-percent to 43-percent.  We doubt he ever was above 45-percent once he took the oath and opened the southern border to the millions of illegal alien invaders.[xiii]  Joe Biden told ABC News that ‘chaos was unavoidable in withdrawing from Afghanistan’ (and that everything is President Donald J. Trump’s fault).  Joe Biden also says that the U.S. military is going to relocate tens of thousands of Afghan ‘refugees’ to the following states: Texas, Wisconsin, and Virginia.  None of them are undergoing any type of vetting, however.  Joe Biden also is inviting the new prime minister of Israel to visit the White House as the relationship between the U.S. and the world’s sole Jewish state is fraying.
  18. 2021 Wednesday Q: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- The Biden regime is allocating $500 million to help Afghan refugees get out of Afghanistan even as more than 40,000 Americans are trapped within the hellhole.  In other Biden regime news, loser “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces she has NO PLANS of not going overseas on her first trip abroad to Vietnam and Singapore even as the Afghanistan debacle continues to implode.  Moving on, Joe Biden is going to war against various school systems around the country.  Any school district that won’t permit trannys- i.e., chicks with dicks- from playing with the girls will face the wrath of the Biden regime.  Likewise, any school with a mask ban mandate now is going to have to contend with the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division (WTF?).  This is crazy.
  19. 2021 Wednesday R: POLITICAL NEWS I- Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, is taking his Freedom Fest on the road.  He says the tour is about positive messaging and fun opportunities for the GOP.  Next, Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says there ‘MUST be an Afghanistan commission in the House to probe this unmitigated disaster.’  Amen.  Moving on, Vice President Mike Pence says that ‘Joe Biden’s retreat from Afghanistan is a reckless retreat.’  Elsewhere, Congressman Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that ‘any novice can see that Afghanistan is a mess.’
  20. 2021 Wednesday S: POLITICAL NEWS II- U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to show her mind is becoming Jell-O when the nonagenarian senile politician said that ‘leaving equipment behind is what happens when there is a military withdrawal.’[xiv]  Saying this alone means she should undergo forced removal from office NOW and possible incarceration in the D.C. gulags.  Regarding this mummified loser, a new Morning Consult poll says that the border crisis and the collapse of Afghanistan have overshadowed the drive to push through the infrastructure bill.   
  21. 2021 Wednesday T: POLITICAL NEWS III- The U.S. Department of Justice announced today that the Missouri gun laws are ‘unconstitutional.’  F-off, DOJ.  Next, Miranda Devine, New York Post columnist, told Tucker Carlson tonight on his program that Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district, did indeed marry her brother to remain in the country.  DNA shows that her brother and she have a 99.999998-percent match thus she committed fraud on the U.S. government.  There are NO statute of limitations on immigration fraud.   Finally, nutrition company REDCON1 is severing ties with RINO loser Arnold Schwarzenegger over his stupid remark, “Screw your freedoms” when it comes to the right NOT to wear a mask.  Good.  Arnold should go back to where the f**k he came from.
  22. 2021 Wednesday U: POLITICAL NEWS IV- Lara Logan told Tucker Carlson on Fox News tonight that there is NO way that the U.S. government did not know what was coming in Afghanistan.  The Taliban live in neighboring Pakistan so there is no way that the U.S. failed to notice the military buildup there nor any reason as to WHY they didn’t begin bombing the border crossings where they flooded into the country.  (Note- is it possible that the Biden regime gave the Taliban the ‘go-ahead’ to invade the country and subjugate it?)
  23. 2021 Wednesday V: U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES NEWS I- U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is fighting tooth and nail to lure vulnerable moderate Democrats into supporting the ‘infrastructure bill,’ i.e., the $1.3 trillion money pit.  Most of these Democrats recall what happened to their predecessors who voted for Obamacare back in 2009-2010, they went down in droves in the 2010 Mid-Term Elections as well as in 2012 (except for President Barack Hussein Obama), and again in the 2014 Mid-Term Elections.  Vote for it, losers, vote for it.  Speaking of the nonagenarian, addle-brained House speaker, she is also trying to get ‘bipartisan support’ for her election-theft bill, the so-called “John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” the one originally called the “For the People Act.”  This old coot believes she can steal all future elections if she can convince enough dummies in both parties to support this criminal crap.
  24. 2021 Wednesday W: ECONOMIC NEWS- Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says it is ‘unclear as to what effect the COVID-19 delta variant will have on the U.S. and global economies.’  Next, retail sales for the month of July dropped by more than 1.1-percent due to COVID-19 lockdowns, restrictions, mandates, and fears.   
  25. 2021 Wednesday X: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS-LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS I- A new Rasmussen poll says that 70-percent of the American people believe violent crime in the country is getting out of control.
  26. 2021 Wednesday Y: BIG TECH NEWS- Although Twitter and other social media platforms controlled by the leftists still ban President Donald J. Trump, the Taliban has free run to spew hate and bile on Twitter.  Allah f**king Akbar! 
  27. 2021 Wednesday Z: NATIONAL SECURITY NEWS- Customs and Border Protection confiscated a sizeable amount of FAKE Chi-Com-made DEA and FBI badges in Chicago.  Elsewhere, U.S. diplomats in Germany are the latest to be hit by the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome.’
  28. 2021 Wednesday AA: HUMAN-CAUSED DISASTER NEWS- The Dixie Fire in northern California is out of control burning 54,000 acres within 24 hours.  The residents of Susanville are preparing to flee as the flames continue racing closer.  Meanwhile, Pacific Gas & Electric announced today that in anticipation of the out-of-control firestorm are cutting power to 50,000 homes and businesses.
  29. 2021 Wednesday BB: NATURAL DISASTERS NEWS- The death toll from last week’s 7.2-magnitude earthquake that slammed Haiti continues to rise what with 2,000-plus deaths.
  30. 2021 Wednesday CC: WAR ON TERROR NEWS-TERRORISM NEWS-JIHAD NEWS- Former U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott says that there are large numbers of known terrorists crossing the southern border into the United States.  Meanwhile, we learned that back in 2014, President Barack Hussein Obama freed the Taliban hoodlums overseeing the takeover of Afghanistan in exchange for disgraced U.S. Army deserter, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.  (Should have sent Sgt. Bergdahl to the gallows, Mr. “Forty-Fourth President.”
  31. 2021 Wednesday DD: MILESTONES AND PERSONAL INTEREST STORIES- Former First Lady Rosalyn Carter celebrates her 94th birthday.  Happy birthday, Madam First Lady!
  32. 2021 Wednesday EE: FAKE NEWS I- Governor “Killer” Cuomo’s brother Chris “Fraido” Cuomo says he wrote one of his older brother’s statements regarding the initial charges of sexual harassment and assault.  Fire the POS, CNN.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com stooge Mark Zuckerberg says that ‘Facebook removed 18 million COVID-19 misinformation posts.’  (Note- that means that anyone who shared a different view of this Chi-Com, lab-engineered disease, their posts and possibly their accounts got whacked).
  33. 2021 Wednesday FF: ARIZONA STATE NEWS- Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, fighting to keep his seat, says he will financially penalize any school district that imposes a mask mandate on students.  
  34. 2021 Wednesday GG: CALIFORNIA STATE NEWS- Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom says the Golden State will ‘gladly welcome all Afghan refugees’ (and hopefully get them registered to vote before the September 14, 2021, recall election).
  35. 2021 Wednesday HH: FLORIDA STATE NEWS- COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the Sunshine State thanks to the Biden regime’s internecine war to dump massive numbers of illegal aliens there so as to drive UP the numbers of cases.  In Orange County, wastewater treatment plants report an increase of 600-percent of COVID-19 detections in the water.  This is not because of the freedom these people enjoy but because of the dumping of hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants across the state in the dead of night.
  36. 2021 Wednesday II: NEW YORK STATE NEWS- Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov reportedly is filing for his pension benefits.  Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is leading in the Democratic Party’s primary race according to new polls.
  37. 2021 Wednesday JJ: TEXAS STATE NEWS- The Texas Supreme Court affirmed today that the ‘fugitive Democrats’ can undergo arrest as soon as the idiots return to the Lone Star State.
  38. 2021 Wednesday KK: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3587 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 09, 22, 38, 39, 45, and Mega 02.  Out of 83,101 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had five numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $7,732 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Golden Snack Shop in Carson, CA 90745 (2) Calamart in Sunnyvale, CA 94087 (3) Shell in Los Angeles, CA 90021 and (4) 7-Eleven in Chula Vista, CA 91911.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #863 with a jackpot of $274 million up for grabs: 35, 36, 51, 55, 61, and Power 26.  Out of  92,804 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,670.
  39. 2021 Wednesday LL:  THE WRAP-UP- You know, mis amigos, I have worked more than my share of places across the country and all I can say is that in my estimation, I think that the Biden ‘whisperer’ in the ear of old Joe- Barack Hussein Obama- has now abandoned his proxy.  It appears that Joe is little more than a senile babe in the woods now, abandoned by all.  We have yet to even see Dr. Jill around anywhere, it is as if he is alone, forlorn, and abandoned and this is concerning, genuinely concerning.  My colleagues here have suggested that the time is NOW for the downfall of the United States, in much the same way as the Soviet Union imploded, so, too, are we, because our enemies have maneuvered us into this position through corrupting our elections and giving us the “Manchurian Candidate.”  The question is, will we allow our government to go after us or will we stand tall and fight back?  I will leave you with this: I know many, many Democrats and the ones who voted FOR Joe Biden now wish they had cast their votes for Trump.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it- there is still hope.

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

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

Millions of Americans fear that when the NEW Axis of the Chi-Coms, Russia, and Iran start the war, instead of coming to our defense, the Biden regime will come after US

Tucker Carlson reports on his news program on Fox News this evening that whistleblowers have handed over information that shows Lt. Colonel Matthew J. Burrows of the USAF has given his subordinates information regarding the U.S. military’s transport of hundreds of thousands of illegals across the nation. They are not to take photos; they are not to talk of the seeding operations of illegal aliens across the country nor should they share any information on social media.

Currently, Joe is shy 98,637 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  6. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.313 per gallon, $3.001 in Florida, $4.059 in Hawaii, and $3.838 in Washington state.[ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Guam: $4.379.  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- Malawi: $4.242 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  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.[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 Cayman Island, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235 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.
  7. 2021 Wednesday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Today is Day No. 113 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and her 19th day since her one and only visit to the southern border.  In between slandering rural American voters out of her ignorance, the ‘Border Czar’ now is standing with the fugitive Texas Democrats by comparing them to Frederick Douglass and the Suffragettes.  What a moron.  Anyhow, here are the stats for the illegal alien invasion as compiled by One America News: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens in the country: $529,756,608.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the millions of vermin in the country: $213,132,541,952.  Next, (3) here is the number for illegals estimated to have crossed the southern border this year: 2,184,438.  Finally, (4) conservative estimated number for illegals suspected to be roaming the byways of the country: 36,184,436.  Note- since the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day first began writing back in 2009, we said back then that there were between 35-50 million human flotsam and jetsam clogging up the country whereas now, we believe there is between 75-100 million illegal aliens.
  8. 2021 Wednesday G: ILLEGAL ALIENS, INVADERS, AND ‘REFUGEES’ NEWS- Tucker Carlson reports on his news program on Fox News this evening that whistleblowers have handed over information that shows Lt. Colonel Matthew J. Burrows of the USAF has given his subordinates information regarding the U.S. military’s transport of hundreds of thousands of illegals across the nation.  They are not to take photos; they are not to talk of the seeding operations of illegal aliens across the country nor should they share any information on social media.  Anyone caught doing so will face repercussions.   U.S. Air Force aircraft and U.S. Air Force bases are being used as staging grounds and transportation hubs so the Bidenistas can remake the country they seemingly loathe and seek to overthrow from within.  This is not good and it must stop NOW.[xii]  Stephen Miller, former White House senior adviser says this is a RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM and that it goes on 24/7/365 since Joe Biden entered the White House.
  9. 2021 Wednesday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- The Taliban sets off a bomb in Kabul, Afghanistan, that claimed the lives of at least four people and wounded at least 11 more.   Reports coming out of the crap country say that the Taliban is carrying out mass executions of Afghan government troops.  Kabul is appealing for help from the Iranians, the Chi-Coms, and the Russians.  Elsewhere, as violence continues to increase in South Africa over the arrest of former President Jacob “The Spear” Zuma, the specter of food and fuel shortages is on the rise.  Meanwhile, French healthcare workers are pushing back against President Emanuel Macron’s orders that ALL healthcare workers in that country MUST get vaccinated for the Bat Pox or surrender their jobs.  This demand by the government has led to mass protests in the streets across France requiring French law enforcement to let loose with tear gas, water cannons, rubber bullets, and nightsticks.
  10. 2021 Wednesday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II- The Chi-Coms, the Russians, and the Iranians are threatening the Biden regime that it had better NOT interfere on behalf of the Cuban people which sadly, we know they won’t.  They are saying ‘hands off Cuba’ which is wrong which is why it is imperative to get President Donald J. Trump back into the White House.  The Chi-Coms are also threatening the Biden regime NOT to interfere in Hong Kong or in Taiwan.  We say, “F**k them.”   Meanwhile, while inflation in the United States hovers around 5.4-percent, Great Britain reports they have hit 2.5-percent inflation, their highest rate in 3 years.
  11. 2021 Wednesday J: HEALTH AND MEDICAL ALERTS- California’s Department of Health is requiring ALL students and teachers to wear masks indoors to fight off the Chi-Vi.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, a children’s advocacy group is suing Washington, D.C., school district over allowing children to be vaccinated with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine without notifying the parents.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, unvaccinated Purdue students will have to “make arrangements” for their school work meaning they cannot sit in classroom with their fellow students.
  12. 2021 Wednesday K: JOE BIDEN NEWS I-  Fake News Media hacks continue celebrating Joe Biden’s big speech yesterday in the Keystone State because he did not fall down, did not start slobbering, did not go blank.  Somehow, the old coot made it through the speech.  However, they did not show the ‘raucous crowd’ hooting and cheering, clapping, and shouting, nor did they show the empty streets traveled by the ‘presidential motorcade’ on the way to the event.  Only Newsmax and One America News showed the vacant streets.
  13. : POLITICAL NEWS I- First, in Arizona, Blake Masters has launched a U.S. Senate run for 2022.  Business owners in Texas say that Joe Biden’s economic policies are worse than the Xi Jinping Bat Flu lockdowns of 2020.  Amen.  In other fascinating news, it appears that the Democratic-Socialists of America are backing Cuba’s government over the long-suffering Cuban people.  Wow.  Add to that the fact that U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas said today that ‘Cuban and Haitian refugees should NOT come to the United States via the sea.’  Wow.  Apparently, Cuban refugees are pro-democracy and despise communism thus they would find NO home here in the United States as long as the Bidenistas and their allies control power.    Speaking of the illustrious DHS secretary, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should apply Secretary Mayorkas’ rules for Cubans to illegal aliens on the southern border.’  Amen.
  14. 2021 Wednesday M: POLITICAL NEWS II-  Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and his fellow Senate Democrats are set to unveil their plan with which to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level.  Wow.  Good for the country.  Elsewhere, as “Kooky Kamala” Harris continues taking heat from one gaffe after another, many Americans now believe that the ‘vice president’ is seriously out of touch with reality.  We concur.  Next, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says the request by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken for ‘racism experts’ from the UN to help the United States combat racism ‘is insane.’  Finally, the House Select Committee on the False Flag Operation of January 06, 2021 has scheduled its first hearing.  Boy, oh, boy, what fun.
  15. 2021 Wednesday N: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says that inflation is likely to remain elevating until eventually moderating.  Uh, okay.  Meanwhile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation finally does something right and that is, it thwarts a kidnap plot hatched in Tehran and put into action here in the United States by four Iranian covert ops agents.  The four scumbags sought to kidnap Iranian author and freedom fighter Masih Alinejad from her Brooklyn home, get her to the coast, transport her to the S—hole nation of Venezuela where the Maduro regime would then hand her over to Iranian thugs for transport back to their country.  (Note- we hope the Biden regime will execute the potential kidnappers if it gets their hands on them).
  16. 2021 Wednesday O: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS / SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3577 with a $8 million jackpot on the line: 08, 15, 28, 38, 39, and Mega 18.  Out of 83,823 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,050 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #863 with a $150 million jackpot on the line: 33, 46, 52, 59, 62, and Powerball 10.  Out of 65,247 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $34,831.
  17. 2021 Wednesday P: SPORTS NEWS- In the 2021 NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks evened the series up by beating the Phoenix Suns by a final score of 109-103.  The next game is Saturday, July 17.

[xii] This can only be occurring if General Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is permitting it to occur.  Mr. Carlson is correct when he says that this goes against the oath to the Constitution every service member from the lowest specialist to General Milley swears to.  What’s more, IF the current regime labels it a conspiracy theory to believe in the Replacement Theory, the federal government sure the hell is doing nothing to dispel that notion.  We are on the cusp of dictatorship.  Plain and fucking simple.
