210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.

  52. 2014 Tuesday: In Sierra Leone during the Ebola virus crisis, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan succumbs to the disease himself, the principal physician battling against it.  Meanwhile, in Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, the authorities claim that 100 of their citizens were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  IF Palestinians were killed, it’s because they were acting the fool- like usual.  In the wake of this, France announces it will send 8-million euros in aid to the Gaza.  Good for them, virtue-signaling is always good.
  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.
  54. 2016 Friday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party.  Needless to say, her fellow Democrats fall into a celebratory swoon and sex workers around the city see the numbers of their patrons spike.  Virginia Senator Tim Kaine becomes her running mate.  What a pair of losers.
  55. 2017 Saturday: U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint live-fire exercises in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile; experts said the North Korean launch showed that a substantial portion of the United States was now within the range of Kim Jong Un’s arsenal of missiles. 
  56. 2018 Sunday: Students in Dhaka, Bangladesh, launch protests around the nation demanding safer roadways.  In a country as poor as this one, they are incapable of doing the necessary infrastructure work to make their nation safe.
  57. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number.  Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  58. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $3.114.  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- Philippines: $4.590 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,579,970,824,046 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 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 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (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- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

[vii] 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.

55. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2022

2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana. The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries. Good, let them be the guinea pigs.

  61. 2017 Friday: J.C. Penney- the company that set the standard for commercial retail stores- announces that it’s going to close between 120 to 130 stores as well as two distribution centers.   The store has made poor decisions by bringing in younger, more hip leaders in the organization that have trashed the brand and ruined the legacy of its founder.
  62. 2018 Saturday: The U.N. Security Council unanimously demanded a 30-day cease-fire across Syria to deliver humanitarian aid and evacuate the wounded, as the death toll reached 500 from a Syrian bombing campaign in the rebel-held suburbs of Damascus.  Unfortunately, the cease-fire failed to take hold.  Elsewhere, the body of the Rev. Billy Graham arrived at the library bearing his name in Charlotte, N.C., where he would lie in repose for two days.  Meanwhile, at the Winter Olympics in South Korea, American men won the gold medal in curling in a decisive upset of Sweden; it was only the second curling medal in U.S. history.  (Editor’s note: curling is a bullshit sport).  Finally, in the aftermath of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, WOKE liberal corporations such as Hertz Rent-a-Car, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and First National Bank of Omaha sever ties with the National Rifle Association.
  63. 2019 Sunday: In the 91st Academy Awards, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen[x] wins four big awards while “Black Panther,” “Green Book” (Best Picture), and “Roma” which had four awards.  It was tough going between “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Black Panther,” both films were extremely popular.  It’s a shame Chadwick Boseman couldn’t have won Best Actor.
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Armenia closes its border with Iran following the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in that country.  Oman- in the Persian Gulf- shuts off air traffic from Iran into its country.  In Italy, another 74 cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu brings the country’s number of cases to 224 what with another four fatalities.  Next, due to South Korea’s outbreak of coronavirus, Vietnam announces its airlines will suspend flight to the country the following day.   In the United States, reported cases are now at 53 as they begin to spread in the Pacific Northwest.  Pakistan’s airlines suspend flights to the People’s Republic of China as it attempts to arrest the number of cases coming to its borders.  Around the Persian Gulf, various nations are reporting their first cases while in Europe, Spain reports its first cases.  
  65. 2021 Wednesday: Day 36 of the Biden Regime- Sean Hannity reports that the Democrats  are striving to find a way with which, they can remove the nuclear codes from the responsibilities of the president, i.e., the commander-in-chief which in this case is ‘Joe Biden’ (in truth, Barack Obama via Kamala Harris).  House Democrats want to hold sole authority for launching nuclear weapons should the necessity arise the United States needs to launch them.  Why would the Democrats be striving to weaken the powers of the president? 
  66. 2021 Wednesday A: Much to the disgust of New York Attorney General Leticia James, the ever-volatile chief lawmaker of the Empire State, no charges will be filed against the seven Rochester police officers involved in the death of druggie Daniel Prude, a doped-up fool who was naked but for a spit hood on his head.  Ms. James sought to make the case a focal point of her career, but her hopes were dashed when a grand jury found the officers behaved within department policy. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday B: Failed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is a ‘yes vote’ on the confirmation of Judge Merrick Garland to be the nation’s next attorney-general.  “Cocaine Mitch” joins ranks with several other RINOs to announce a ‘yes vote’ for the wily evader of all pertinent questions.   Elsewhere, 13 Republican House members urge the FCC chair to back ‘free speech’ over leftist demands for ‘censorship’ of all speech other than what they approve.   Meanwhile, the Dems hold hearings on Capitol Hill in the House with which to forge ahead of de-platforming One America News, Newsmax, and Fox News Channel.  We expect they will soon come after Talk Radio as well as online speech in blogs.    Finally, 14 House Republicans are requesting the FBI provide information on just how deep Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell’s ties go to communist China.  The Republicans want to know just how compromised the government is by the Democrat’s schlepping of a Chi-Com intelligence agent.  We want to know the answers, too.
  68. 2021 Wednesday C: The White House press briefing room is cleared and cleaned after an unnamed reporter tests positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hold hearings on Republican-requested curbs on the Democrats scheme to federalize ALL voting via the H.R. 1 ‘For the People’ bulls**t bill currently being pushed by the Dems.  This bill is wholly unconstitutional.   Elsewhere, RINO Congressman Fred Upton, Michigan 6th District, finds himself censured yet again over his recent vote to expel Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from the haloed halls of Congress over her support of President Donald J. Trump.  Cass County, Michigan, slapped the censure on him today.   Finally, former President Barack Hussein Obama says that ‘white resentment and resistance’ is what stalled discussion of reparations for those descended from slaves.[xi]
  69. 2021 Wednesday D:  Free Speech founder Bradley Smith says the ‘Democrats targeting conservatives is a rank abuse of power.’  Yet, the Democrats are working overtime to prevent conservative speech being heard anywhere.  Elsewhere, another federal judge bans the enforcement of the ban of deporting illegal aliens.  Under the Biden regime, ALL illegal aliens can remain in the country.  Also- why aren’t the Democrats weeping and wailing over the big blue Quonset huts down along the southern border filled to the brim with the 5,000 illegal aliens being apprehended per day?  When Trump was president, they were gnashing their teeth, smearing their fetid bodies with ashes, donning sackcloth, and scourging their backs.  Now, not so much.  Hypocrites.
  70. 2021 Wednesday E: The International Olympic Committee is preparing to announce its preferred bidder for the 2032 Summer Olympics.  Who could it be?  Russia?  The Chi-Coms?  Iran?  We’ll have to wait and see.  Speaking of Iran, people are speculating that all the missiles being fired out of the crap-hole country are a message directed at the ‘Biden administration.’   Elsewhere, everyone was awaiting information as to when the court date for aged rocker Bruce “I Love Obama” Springsteen[xii] were going to be.  Then, we heard the court threw out the drunken driving charges against the “Boss.”   In other sad news, the Cancel Culture now labels the movie, “Grease,” as being BAD.  It’s bad because they claim there’s misogyny, that it’s sexist, that it’s homophobic, and that it slut-shames.’  Gee whiz sounds like a movie everyone should see.  This is the trouble when a bunch of morons attempts to judge the past by the present.  Remember lefties, one day, YOU will be the ones a future generation is judging.   
  71. 2021 Wednesday F: A recent anthropological study suggests that when early humans came to the Americas between 10-12 thousand years ago (although evidence suggests human habitation in North America as far back as 60,000 years), dogs traveled here with them.   In other news, an upcoming U.S. report lays the blame for the death of U.S.-Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi directly at the feet of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday G: Democrats are set to vote on their PORKULUS, aka the COVID-19 Relief Bill this Friday.  Out of $1.9 trillion (money being borrowed from the Chi-Coms), $350 billion is going to state and local governments (think Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Mayor Eric Garcetti, and other BIG BLUE STATE liberal locales.  Another $86 billion is going to fund union pension plans (think teachers’ unions and the like), $129 billion to schools, whether they reopen or not, another $15 billion to Medicaid expansion (think FREE healthcare for illegal aliens), $30 billion for public transit (liberals hate private cars), and at least $500 million for the arts, humanities, museums, and libraries.  ONLY 9-percent of this appalling amount of cash is going to Chinese Virus needs.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says, ‘it’s crazy to borrow money to fund this liberal wish list of bailouts, handouts, giveaways, and bull crap.’  However, more than 150 BIG BUSINESS executives support this insanity as they hope to latch their grubby mitts onto this handout of money borrowed from Beijing.    
  73. 2021 Wednesday H: Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, serving on the House task force on the Chi-Coms says there is NO way the Chi-Coms should host the Olympics and that to have the American flag flying in the PRC would be wrong.  The Chi-Coms bear full responsibility for the deaths of victims of the ‘VID and that to honor them would be to dishonor everyone else. 
  74. 2021 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 112,214,084 confirmed cases, +389,387, 2,487,568, confirmed deaths, +10,900, and 63,368,513 confirmed recoveries, +269,020.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,526,532 confirmed cases, up 63,214 from yesterday’s reporting, 507,469 confirmed deaths, UP 2,234, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last four-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 178,955 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the hell is it you feeble old Chi-Com stooge?  It seems that everyone around ‘Pro-China Joe’ is ‘Pro-Chi-Coms.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday J: Next, in the three states in which, 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: 3,543,162 confirmed cases, 49,895 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 339,051 confirmed cases, 4,947 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Oklahoma: currently, they have 421,010 confirmed cases, 4,264 confirmed deaths, and 403,159 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 759,572 confirmed cases, 5,634 confirmed deaths, and 712,555 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Mexico: 2,052,266 confirmed cases, 181,809 confirmed deaths, and 1,607,869 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, medical researchers now fear coronavirus variants.  Will they subject us to continued lockdowns, restrictions, and intimidation?  F**k them.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ says it’s shipping 14.5 million doses of the Wuhan Virus Crisis vaccine to the states this week.   Finally, the FDA says that Johnson & Johnson’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine meets emergency usage standards.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,961.86, UP 424.51 points (+1.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,597.97, UP 132.77 points (+0.99%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,925.43, UP 44.06 points (+1.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.00 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.34%) while the price of SILVER is $28.01 per troy ounce, +0.15 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,275.40 per troy oz, +17.50 (+1.39%) while the price of COPPER is $4.32 per pound, +0.02 (+0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,442.50 per troy oz, +89.50 (+3.80%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.45 per barrel, +0.23 (+0.36%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.36.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000020 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, new home sales are up by 4-percent whereas new mortgages are down by 11-percent.
  77. 2021 Wednesday L: The state attorney general of West Virginia- Patrick Morrissey- rejects lawmakers’ calls to ban or censor news programming.   Meanwhile, Donald Trump teases his upcoming speech at CPAC by suggesting that he’s going to blast enfeebled Joe Biden and tease his upcoming 2024 run for the White House.  This would explain why the Dems are seeking to make Joe Biden a ‘prime minister’ and neuter his presidency (if you can call it that).  Next, noted legal scholar Jonathan Turley suggests the ‘new red scare’ is intimidating conservative voices into silence.  Regarding this, Arizona GOP Congressman Andy Biggs says the ‘pressure on media platform providers to silence conservative voices is intense.  Finally, Palm Beach County, Florida, refuses to lower flags for famed radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Powerball and Super Lotto drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3537 with a $23 million on the line: 07, 34, 38, 44, 47, and Mega 07.  Out of 113,786 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $18,478.  One ticket was sold at a Chevron in Los Angeles, CA  while the second was at Sky Fuel in El Cajon, CA 92021.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball #823 with a $90 million jackpot just waiting to be grabbed by some lucky individual: 04, 33, 43, 53, 65, and Powerball 21.  Out of 56,233 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $32,139.
  79. 2021 Wednesday N: A former aid to New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo details the ongoing sexual harassment she suffered at the hands of this slack-jawed bottom-feeder.  Shame, Andrew, shame.  Elsewhere, a misguided poll reports that a majority of Republicans back Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Chinese Virus Relief Bill.  We do not believe this report.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasts the Democrats’ attempt at de-platforming conservative news media sites.  He also says that President Donald J. Trump’s help in retaking the House for the GOP is going to be extremely important.   Next, failed- and- censured Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO, continues bad-mouthing President Donald J. Trump, blaming him for the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter- led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the very same riots used by Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to turn Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill and White House into a Baghdad-like Green Zone.  Some wag on Newsmax said that Congresswoman Cheney is auditioning for a future job on CNN (or better- MSNBC).  Liz, from all of us to you, “SHUT YOUR RINO MOUTH!”  Congressman McCarthy whip this RINO into line or strip her of her committee assignments the same way the RINOs did Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene.   
  80. 2021 Wednesday O: Grant Stinchfield reports on Newsmax that Chi-Com facial recognition software is being used in the United States.   As he says, ‘overreaching surveillance in the U.S. is infringing on every American’s civil liberties.’  As he says, the Chi-Coms tested the software on Uighur Muslims who slave away in Xinjiang concentration camps on behalf of Coca-Cola, Nike, Apple, and other global corporations (as well as have their organs harvested for the global organ market) and now with the help of Democrats like ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and others are transforming the entire world into a vast surveillance state.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ the old coot he’s also revoking Trump-imposed bans on the numbers of foreign workers and Green Card holders allowed into the United States.  In a country beset by Chi-Com-caused Panda Pandemic unemployment, ‘Old Joe’ is flooding the country with hundreds of thousands (and soon millions) of people who are going to Americans’ jobs.  Time for the RED STATES to form a new country and abandon ship.   In other news, calls for the impeachment of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continue to grow led by Democrats in state government.
  81. 2021 Wednesday P: Jen Psaki says 11 million illegal alien fence-jumpers and river-swimmers and visa-overstays will soon have a pathway to citizenship.  The Dems continue braying about ’11 million, 11 million, 11 million’ when in fact, sources within the government say the number is closer to 30 to 50 million illegal aliens hiding in the shadows except, of course, when they commit crimes on one another and against U.S. citizens.  When the 11 million illegals are ‘legalized,’ they are going to receive free health care, free housing, free food stamps, free in-state tuition, free transportation, free this, free that while American citizens foot the bill and languish without jobs. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana.  The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries.  Good, let them be the guinea pigs.  Next, the White House says a call between President Biden and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will ‘happen soon.’  White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday that a classified U.S. report confirms the fact that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the hit on Jamal Khashoggi.  C’ est la vie.
  83. 2022 Thursday: Join us later in the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “Chicago 1970”- came out on August 07, 2020.  The album featured a stripped down, lean, mean, music-fighting machine featuring NO female vocalist for the first time in the group’s history.  However, the band did feature Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  You can see, hear, and feel Richard Thompson’s growing power within the band, power that would eventually propel him out on his own being a rocker at heart.  We love this album as we know you will so why waste time?  Seek it out now, give it a listen, and make it a part of your daily listening enjoyment.  You will be glad you did.  Undoubtedly!

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2022, BLOG POST #4,452

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Wednesday, February 24, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

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

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Thursday, February 24, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two different occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ii] Juan Peron’s wife, Eva Peron, is the woman who that dingbat from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez models her loser self after which is why we have bestowed upon her the name, “Baby Evita.”

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of George Thorogood but when we do you will be the first to know. 

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] In 2020, Democrats are whining that Donald Trump wanted a quid pro quo from Ukraine to get U.S. military aid.  Yet here, we have a prime example as to WHY and HOW foreign aid is doled out by countries around the world.  President Jimmy Carter said that ‘he would consider human rights abuses before doling out American aid to countries around the world.  Quid pro quo?  You had better flipping believe it and a damned good one in our view so Democrats, stop with the f**king sniveling, enough is enough already.

[viii] In 2019, the question is, “Is the late John Dingell looking UP or is he looking DOWN?

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

[x] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[xi] The real reason as to WHY talk of reparations stalled is because (1) it’s crazy, there is NO one alive today descended from slavery prior to 1865 and (2) Democrats love talking about it but will never do anything to solve it as once they solve it, they can no longer use it as a drum to beat around the clock.  Besides, there are so many interracial couples, kids, and others so how is it going to work, is the WHITE spouse going to hand the BLACK spouse a check?  What’s more, what the liberals never tell you is that like the COVID-19 relief, the recipients will have to pay taxes on this money.  When it comes to liberals there are no FREE lunches.  Period.  It’s also important to note that Obama would never have been elected TWICE without white voters so Mr. ‘Unqualified President (due to being born in Kenya and not in the United States) Obama, STFU.

[xii] We will never promote the music of this no-talent POS.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

210. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 29, 2021

RR. 2008 Tuesday: The federal government indicted Alaska Senator Ted Stevens on seven felony counts of concealing more than a quarter million dollars in house renovations and gifts from a powerful oil contractor. However, after being railroaded out of office, a jury later found the long-time Republican guilty of lying on financial disclosure forms, but a judge subsequently dismissed the case saying prosecutors had withheld evidence.

Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Go get them, Republicans, go get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Congresswoman Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

  57. 2021 Thursday: Here we are, the midpoint of the week for those of us who work seven straight days so let us see what the heck is happening today…let’s hope President Biden has not gotten us into a shooting war…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

We will admit, this is one album we have not heard which is strange as we have heard them all.  It’s also a difficult one to find.  What’s more, they may not be the same Wild Turkey as the one led by former Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick so we will leave it to those who wish to seek it out, give it a listen, and then perhaps enlighten us as to whom exactly the group is and how they sound.  In 12 years, we will admit that we have NEVER been stymied in finding out about a band or its recorded music.  We are stumped!

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

[vi] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that celebrated day.

[vii] 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.

  55. 2014 Monday: Representative John Dingell[viii], an 87-year-old Democrat congressman who has been in office for 29 terms, announces he will retire at the end of his current term.  The reason he gives is that although his health is ‘fine,’ he can no longer do his job effectively because of the ‘hostile climate’ in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Oh, boohoo, congressman, when the Democrats were screwing the GOP you could care less.  What a schmuck.  Elsewhere, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed an anti-gay bill that punished gay sex with up to life in prison.  Meanwhile, writer-director-actor Harold Ramis, 69, died in Glencoe, Illinois.

  58. 2017 Friday: J.C. Penney- the company that set the standard for commercial retail stores- announces that it’s going to close between 120 to 130 stores as well as two distribution centers.   The store has made poor decisions by bringing in younger, more hip leaders in the organization that have trashed the brand and ruined the legacy of its founder.
  59. 2018 Saturday: The U.N. Security Council unanimously demanded a 30-day cease-fire across Syria to deliver humanitarian aid and evacuate the wounded, as the death toll reached 500 from a Syrian bombing campaign in the rebel-held suburbs of Damascus.  Unfortunately, the cease-fire failed to take hold.  Elsewhere, the body of the Rev. Billy Graham arrived at the library bearing his name in Charlotte, N.C., where he would lie in repose for two days.  Meanwhile, at the Winter Olympics in South Korea, American men won the gold medal in curling in a decisive upset of Sweden; it was only the second curling medal in U.S. history.  (Editor’s note: curling is a bullshit sport).  Finally, in the aftermath of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, WOKE liberal corporations such as Hertz Rent-a-Car, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and First National Bank of Omaha sever ties with the National Rifle Association.
  60. 2019 Sunday: In the 91st Academy Awards, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen[x] wins four big awards while “Black Panther,” “Green Book” (Best Picture), and “Roma” which had four awards.  It was tough going between “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Black Panther,” both films were extremely popular.  It’s a shame Chadwick Boseman couldn’t have won Best Actor.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2021

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Wednesday, February 24, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two different occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ii] Juan Peron’s wife, Eva Peron, is the woman who that dingbat from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez models her loser self after which is why we have bestowed upon her the name, “Baby Evita.”

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of George Thorogood but when we do you will be the first to know. 

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] In 2020, Democrats are whining that Donald Trump wanted a quid pro quo from Ukraine to get U.S. military aid.  Yet here, we have a prime example as to WHY and HOW foreign aid is doled out by countries around the world.  President Jimmy Carter said that ‘he would consider human rights abuses before doling out American aid to countries around the world.  Quid pro quo?  You had better flipping believe it and a damned good one in our view so Democrats, stop with the f**king sniveling, enough is enough already.

[viii] In 2019, the question is, “Is the late John Dingell looking UP or is he looking DOWN?

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

[x] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

Elsewhere, 44 people at least die and hundreds more are injured as ISIS carries out a wave of car bombings across the country.  In Dera Ismal Khan, Pakistan, the Taliban conducts a prison break freeing at least 300 dedicated jihadis who flee to the hills.  KILL THEM!

  51. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number. Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  52. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Go get them, Republicans, go get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Congresswoman Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).
  53. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 16,845,602 confirmed cases, UP by 240,535 cases, 662,577 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,240 deaths, and 9,836,182 confirmed recoveries, UP by 191,795 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,491,773 confirmed cases, UP by 65,492 new cases, 152,624 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,250 new deaths, and 2,204,332 confirmed recoveries, UP by 53,113 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).
  54. 2020 Wednesday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 475,503 confirmed cases, 8,715 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,865 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,215 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 54,205 confirmed cases, 1,548 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, New Jersey: 180,776 confirmed number of cases, 15,798 confirmed number of deaths, and like other Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Phil Murphy?  Acting like your typical Blue State governor and concealing the truth?  Nothing to say?  Let gym owners out of jail.
  55. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,539.57, UP 160.29 points (0.61%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,542.94, UP 140.85 points (1.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,258.44, UP 40.00 points (1.24%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.60 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.42%) while the price of SILVER is $24.36 per troy ounce, +0.034 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $957.90 per troy oz, -0.60 (-0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $2.93 per pound, +0.0105 (+0.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.29 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.05%).

Q. 1917: The Bolshevik Revolution (Russian Revolution) breaks out in earnest.

The Kaiser promised the Mexican government that if they joined the Central Powers, he would reward them with ALL territories lost to the United States during the Mexican American War 1846-1848.

  51. 2014: Representative John Dingell[viii], an 87-year-old Democrat congressman who has been in office for 29 terms, announces he will retire at the end of his current term.

Billy Graham arrived at the library bearing his name in Charlotte, N.C., where he would lie in repose for two days.  Meanwhile, at the Winter Olympics in South Korea, American men won the gold medal in curling in a decisive upset of Sweden; it was only the second curling medal in U.S. history.  (Editor’s note: curling is a bullshit sport).
  56. 2019: In Golaghat District in north-eastern India, toxic bootleg liquor is credited with at least 155 deaths and another 200 being treated in local hospitals. Stop drinking the moonshine, people.

In 1981, Roxy Music released a major compilation collection of the band’s first seven albums.  Entitled, “The First Seven Albums,” the set provided the veteran and novice listener alike the amazing opportunity to have all of the rock band’s music in one place.  Yes, the price is somewhat high but you get SEVEN albums so what is the point in avoiding a collection such as this?  We urge everyone to use whatever site you do for the absolute best in rock music.  Roxy Music ranks among the best bands to come out of England so we hope you will look for them and this amazing offering NOW.

[ii] Juan Peron’s wife, Eva Peron, is the woman who that dingbat from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez models her loser self after which is why we have bestowed upon her the name, “Baby Evita.”

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[viii] In 2019, the question is, “Is the late John Dingell looking UP or is he looking DOWN?

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

Just the Facts: we must thank our lucky stars that Jussie Smollett was unclear about camera angles in his staged beating as well as did not stage it at the height of a hot, humid summer

Can you imagine the mayhem and the violence that would have spiraled rapidly out of control if the actor’s faux beating was on an endless tape loop and it was a boiling hot August? Riots would have engulfed Chicago, they would have exploded in every other major and mid-level city as angry blacks and miffed gays would be out in the streets, seeking vengeance. It would have been extremely ugly and possibly deadly.

Jussie Smollett #6 02-19-2019 (400).jpg

Jussie Smollett now must pay the price for making up a Hate Crime

Delano, CA, 02-24-2019 Sunday:  Well, the Jussie Smollett tragedy is just that…a tragedy for—HIM.  This past Thursday, a day after I authored my post at the secondary blog regarding this made-for-television farce, the Chicago cops held a news conference and laid out everything we basically already knew: that Little Jussie manufactured his very own ‘beating,’ one that took place on a snowy morning after 2:00 a.m. in Chi-Town.

That he thought he could get away with the crime is ludicrous as that city like most other cities across the nation is rife with cameras in every nook, crack, and cranny.  It was only a matter of time before the cops painstakingly traced the movements of the two men captured on them, both forward and backward to the point they identified them, picked them up, and then sweated them for 47 hours.

We should consider ourselves extremely lucky that Smollett did not write a convincing script, that he did not spend time working out various street camera angles so that when his two hired dupes accosted him on the street, it would be forever frozen in our memories like the Rodney King ass-whooping of two decades-plus ago.

We, like most everyone else, remained relatively mum on this story because it just did not ‘feel right.’  We expected another shoe to drop and while not knowing exactly what it was going to be, we knew it would be oncoming at some point if we just awaited it patiently.

Smollett has done himself a major disservice because instead of his fellow conspirators biting the bullet and going down for him, they flipped on him and now the young actor is in a heap of trouble, especially if the FBI decides to prosecute him on mail fraud.  Remember this episode began with him mailing himself a letter to where he works, one with threatening, vile language and containing ground-up aspirin so he could cry, blubber, and snivel.

Only, Fox TV did not pay it any attention.  I am sure they receive all manner of mail, both pro and con of the show, so what more could they do other than to set it aside and hand it over to the cops?  Only, they did not hand it over to the cops and so Jussie was twice as upset as he would have been had the network and the show circled the wagons around him.

Since for some, inexplicable reason the network did NOT react, Jussie had to up the ante, which he did, hoping for what he said would be the end result of the network giving him a larger salary (?) instead of possibly writing him out of the show, “Empire.”  Sadly for him, his script-writing abilities are not that good.

I guess we should thank our lucky stars that the actor failed in lining up his ‘assault’ with the camera view that would give him lifelong notoriety as even when proven false of him, a gay black actor suffering at the hands of ‘detestable Trumpkins’ but also that he elected NOT to do it at the height of summer.

Can you imagine the mayhem and the violence that would have spiraled rapidly out of control if the actor’s faux beating was on an endless tape loop and it was a boiling hot August?  Riots would have engulfed Chicago, they would have exploded in every other major and mid-level city as angry blacks and miffed gays would be out in the streets, seeking vengeance.  It would have been extremely ugly and possibly deadly.

In most every other race riot, people lose their lives on both sides of the line.  Angry blacks will go to great lengths to make sure the American people register their rage at being treated unjustly and some among them end up losing their lives just as white people in the wrong place at the wrong time suffer beatings and possibly life-threatening injuries, if not death.

When the truth of the matter comes out, we cannot hit the ‘redo’ button on the keyboard and bring back people who are dead, repair their grievous injuries, and get them out of jail if they have done something that put them there.  Likewise, we cannot plaster over the smoldering hostility as there will always be those who do not believe the truth when it punches them smack-dab in their faces.

Add to that the humongous amount of property damage, whether it be burned and looted stores, cars set ablaze, attacks on local infrastructure and the like and events such as these cost hundreds of millions of dollars.  All for what?

The bad thing about what Mr. Smollett did is that he sought to perpetrate a HATE CRIME on Trump voters in general and the president in particular.  Jussie has drunk of the poisoned Kool-Aid.  He said his attackers beat him, poured bleach on him, put a noose around his neck, and told him, “THIS IS MAGA COUNTRY (BITCH- I added the last part as it seems to fit the narrative) and that HE HAS NO PLACE IN IT.”

Until he told a friendly news person he suffered at the hands of Trumpkins because ‘I’m hard on 45,’ no one I know knew he said stuff about Trump.  So what?  Millions of other people do, too, all because they have been given a false narrative via the fake news purveyors.

In the end, no one knows what is going to befall Jussie Smollett.  What I do know is that after a couple of seasons of watching Empire, my wife and I gave it up because it was all too predictable: one character after another being played by their manipulated father/boyfriend/husband/ex-husband that one could more or less predict the outcome of any given season.

I would hope Little Jussie spend some time in the Cook County Jail just as he should in federal prison.  We cannot reward these crimes nor can we give him a pass simply because he is a gay black actor.  I hope the judge throws the book at this punk as the problems he MIGHT have caused had he been successful, would be with us for decades to come.

See you next time.  God bless and lot’s of love.  I will be back sometime most likely in August.

This is a cartoonish caricature of me, one created by up-and-coming Bakersfield street artist, Simone, one I am pleased to say looks ‘rather good.’  I have been in professional food service for a long, long time, moving into management back in 1973.  At the time, I was the Food and Beverage Director at one of the hotels in Bakersfield, CA, located on Union Avenue.  I was in my late thirties at the time.  I am still working at one of the local hotels in the nearby town of Delano, CA, a place that has been my home for the past 10 years.  Our city has experienced marvelous growth and is fast becoming a player in county politics.
