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

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

Trump says, ‘yes, the U.S. wants to buy Greenland from the Danes.’  The Danes were all offended at his offer. 
  54. 2020 Tuesday: The NYPD reports that requests for retirement benefits are up by 50-percent.  Go figure.  Next reports released today that the Chi-Com backed (or so we believe) opioid epidemic in the United States has cost the United States more than $630 billion since 2007.  It should be clear that communist China is waging an ‘opium war’ against the United States which means we should do the same to them.  Next, optimism is rising in the United States with the news that new home construction increased by 22.6-percent.  Meanwhile, today being the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment that gives women the right to vote, President Donald J.

  56. 2020 Tuesday B: The National Border Patrol Council today endorsed President Donald J. Trump as other law enforcement organizations have and will continue doing.  There is no other choice in this upside-down world.  Meanwhile, a POS terrorist named Marquise Love underwent arrest today in Portland, Oregon, for the savage assault on a motorist whom the mob dragged out of the car on Sunday night, beat, kicked, and stomped before Mr. Love ran up and did a roundhouse kick into the head of the victim, a man named Adam Haner.
  57. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 21,974,393 confirmed cases, UP by 234,892 cases, 776,157 confirmed deaths, DOWN by 84 (yesterday, sources reported 776,241) deaths, and 13,934,532 confirmed recoveries, UP by 231,569 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,563,646 confirmed cases, UP by 74,883 new cases, 173,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,567 new deaths, and 2,816,468 confirmed recoveries, UP by 53,329 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least thirty million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true.
  58. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 632,667 confirmed cases, 11,342 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,215 confirmed cases, forty confirmed deaths, and 1,868 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 67,721 confirmed cases, 1,785 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us look at one more state, the Empire State: 426,571 confirmed number of cases, 32,833 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you foul-smelling piece of cesspool grime, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.

  60. 2020 Tuesday F: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka REAL name Sandy Cortez, seconds the NOMINATION OF SEN. BERNIE SANDERS OF VERMONT FOR PRESIDENT.  She just spit in the face of Nancy Pelosi and of the Old Guard.  Wow.  We now believe what we heard to be so is so, that AOC is supporting the far-left challenger of Nancy Pelosi in November, Muslim attorney Shahid Buttar- you heard it here first.  Will the Squad follow in AOC’s footsteps?  Finally, the organizers conduct the roll call, and the result is Joe Biden (JOBI) winning 3,627 delegates and Sen. Bernie Sanders winning 1,151.  Congratulations, Joe, you have wanted this for decades.  Good for you.
  61.  2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 209,977,126 confirmed cases, +651,987, 4,403,271 confirmed deaths, +9,859 and 188,144,233 confirmed recoveries, +258,258.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 38,016,008 confirmed cases, UP 130,753 from yesterday’s reporting, 641,080 confirmed deaths, UP 1,007, [ix] and 30,324,754 confirmed recoveries, UP 35,473.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

  68. 2021 Wednesday G: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News II– The U.S. State Department announced today that IT CANNOT secure the road into Hamid Karzai International Airport so that Americans can evacuate the collapsing country.  “Shelter in place” is what they are telling American citizens.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban are extremely emboldened by Joe Biden’s failures.’  Next, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and chairperson of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley addressed reporters today.  Neither one is very illustrious but the political general- Milley- lied bald-faced and unabashedly to reporters when he claimed- get this- ‘the U.S. didn’t see this coming.’  The liar also says that ‘U.S. troops CANNOT help Americans make it to the airport to escape the country.’  What a POS.  Meanwhile, Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassan told Newsmax that ‘Joe Biden halted President Donald J. Trump’s crisis response’ program in Afghanistan.

[xx] 
  70. 2021 Wednesday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster, cross-border shootings from Mexico on U.S. Border Patrol agents are on the increase as the cartels continue ‘feeling their oats’ with the lawlessness afflicting the region.  Next, a new poll says that a vast majority of the American people favor the immigration policies of President Donald J. Trump compared to the lack of any of the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is trying to slash the numbers of ‘asylum cases’ along the southern border.  This means look for MORE illegal aliens coming to a town or city near you.
  71. 2021 Wednesday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Chi-Coms are deploying numerous warships to the Taiwan Straits and are telling Taipei that “Joe Biden is not coming to protect you.”  The Biden regime then vowed to support Taiwan after the Chi-Coms said what they said.  (Note- we do not believe Joe Biden even knows WHAT Taiwan is much less WHERE it is).  Elsewhere, the Russians were testing a prototype military transport plane that sadly went down, killed both pilots and the flight engineer outside Moscow.
  72. 2021 Wednesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Chicago to bring back indoor mask mandates for ALL citizens.   Next, Joe Biden is going to require that ALL NURSING HOME STAFF must be fully vaccinated, or they cannot work.  Elsewhere, Disneyworld tweaked its mask policy to allow visitors to go without masks when outdoors in their theme parks.  Next, unvaccinated students at Quinnipiac University face fines and loss of internet privileges.  Finally, parents in Louisiana are rebelling against Governor John Bel Edwards’ harsh mask measures in the state’s schools.  Stand and fight, people, stand and fight.
  73. 2021 Wednesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $49.33 (2) AstraZeneca $59.44 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.26 (4) BioNTech $363.99 (5) Moderna $398.80.  The reason we compile these numbers for our readers is so that you can understand WHY there is this ongoing push for everyone to get vaccinated, get vaccinated again, and now get flipping booster shots, thus, the politicians invest in these companies.  When the federal government buys vaccines and distributes them free not just to the American people but to illegal frigging aliens and to countries around the world that hate our guts, the profit levels soar by as much as 1,000-percent.  The stock dividends pour millions of dollars into the pockets of every politician invested in these companies.  It is your classic money-go-round, all money leads back to our political leaders of both parties.  As if right on cue, U.S. officials are calling for ALL Americans to begin getting booster shots in September, eight months after their second vaccination, so as to ‘protect them’ from the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $85.48 (2) General Dynamics: $196.60 (3) Boeing: $219.09 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.68 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $363.16.  Ditto what we said in the prior segment.  Politicians decry the companies producing the ‘weapons of war’ yet invest heavily in them.  This is a shame, and all elected leaders should undergo automatic banning from investing in companies that win big fat government contracts.  
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  The FBI is joining an election machine hacking probe in the great state of Colorado.  Meanwhile, Georgia approves of a Fulton County election audit where loads of election fraud occurred last year.
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Regarding the disaster ongoing in Afghanistan, President Donald J. Trump says our nation has ‘never been so humiliated as it now is.’  President Trump had much more to say about the usurper living in the White House, senile old fool that the invader is: “Joe Biden destroyed respect for the U.S. by abandoning Afghanistan in a mess and it makes the country much more vulnerable than ever.”  The President’s son, Donald J. Trump Jr. told Newsmax that the ‘Taliban waited for a weakling to be in the White House before they did what they did.’
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden News I– As Afghanistan worsens by the minute, Joe Biden’s ‘once HIGH (we do not believe this) approval ratings went from around 54-percent to 43-percent.  We doubt he ever was above 45-percent once he took the oath and opened the southern border to the millions of illegal alien invaders. [xxi]  Joe Biden told ABC News that ‘chaos was unavoidable in withdrawing from Afghanistan’ (and that everything is President Donald J. Trump’s fault).  Joe Biden also says that the U.S. military is going to relocate tens of thousands of Afghan ‘refugees’ to the following states: Texas, Wisconsin, and Virginia.  None of them are undergoing any type of vetting, however.  Joe Biden also is inviting the new prime minister of Israel to visit the White House as the relationship between the U.S. and the world’s sole Jewish state is fraying.
  78. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is allocating $500 million to help Afghan refugees get out of Afghanistan even as more than 40,000 Americans are trapped within the hellhole.  In other Biden regime news, loser “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces she has NO PLANS of not going overseas on her first trip abroad to Vietnam and Singapore even as the Afghanistan debacle continues to implode.  Moving on, Joe Biden is going to war against various school systems around the country.  Any school district that won’t permit trannys- i.e., chicks with dicks- from playing with the girls will face the wrath of the Biden regime.  Likewise, any school with a mask ban mandate now is going to have to contend with the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division (WTF?).  This is crazy.
  79. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News I– Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, is taking his Freedom Fest on the road.  He says the tour is about positive messaging and fun opportunities for the GOP.  Next, Rep. Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says there ‘MUST be an Afghanistan commission in the House to probe this unmitigated disaster.’  Amen.  Moving on, Vice President Mike Pence says that ‘Joe Biden’s retreat from Afghanistan is a reckless retreat.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that ‘any novice can see that Afghanistan is a mess.’
  80. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News II– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to show her mind is becoming Jell-O when the nonagenarian senile politician said that ‘leaving equipment behind is what happens when there is a military withdrawal.’[xxii]  Saying this alone means she should undergo forced removal from office NOW and possible incarceration in the D.C. gulags.  Regarding this mummified loser, a new Morning Consult poll says that the border crisis and the collapse of Afghanistan have overshadowed the drive to push through the infrastructure bill.   
  81. 2021 Wednesday T: Political News III– The U.S. Department of Justice announced today that the Missouri gun laws are ‘unconstitutional.’  F-off, DOJ.  Next, Miranda Devine, New York Post columnist, told Tucker Carlson tonight on his program that Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district, did indeed marry her brother to remain in the country.  DNA shows that her brother and she have a 99.999998-percent match thus she committed fraud on the U.S. government.  There are NO statute of limitations on immigration fraud.   Finally, nutrition company REDCON1 is severing ties with RINO loser Arnold Schwarzenegger over his stupid remark, “Screw your freedoms” when it comes to the right NOT to wear a mask.  Good.  Arnold should go back to where the f**k he came from.
  82. 2021 Wednesday U: Political News IV– Lara Logan told Tucker Carlson on Fox News tonight that there is NO way that the U.S. government did not know what was coming in Afghanistan.  The Taliban live in neighboring Pakistan so there is no way that the U.S. failed to notice the military buildup there nor any reason as to WHY they didn’t begin bombing the border crossings where they flooded into the country.  (Note- is it possible that the Biden regime gave the Taliban the ‘go-ahead’ to invade the country and subjugate it?)
  83. 2021 Wednesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is fighting tooth and nail to lure vulnerable moderate Democrats into supporting the ‘infrastructure bill,’ i.e., the $1.3 trillion money pit.  Most of these Democrats recall what happened to their predecessors who voted for Obamacare back in 2009-2010, they went down in droves in the 2010 Mid-Term Elections as well as in 2012 (except for President Barack Hussein Obama), and again in the 2014 Mid-Term Elections.  Vote for it, losers, vote for it.  Speaking of the nonagenarian, addle-brained House speaker, she is also trying to get ‘bipartisan support’ for her election-theft bill, the so-called “John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” the one originally called the “For the People Act.”  This old coot believes she can steal all future elections if she can convince enough dummies in both parties to support this criminal crap.
  84. 2021 Wednesday W: Economic News– Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says it is ‘unclear as to what effect the COVID-19 delta variant will have on the U.S. and global economies.’  Next, retail sales for the month of July dropped by more than 1.1-percent due to COVID-19 lockdowns, restrictions, mandates, and fears.   
  85. 2021 Wednesday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– A new Rasmussen poll says that 70-percent of the American people believe violent crime in the country is getting out of control.
  86. 2021 Wednesday Y: Big Tech News– Although Twitter and other social media platforms controlled by the leftists still ban President Donald J. Trump, the Taliban has free run to spew hate and bile on Twitter.  Allah f**king Akbar! 
  87. 2021 Wednesday Z: National Security News– Customs and Border Protection confiscated a sizeable amount of FAKE Chi-Com-made DEA and FBI badges in Chicago.  Elsewhere, U.S. diplomats in Germany are the latest to be hit by the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome.’
  88. 2021 Wednesday AA: Human-Caused Disaster News– The Dixie Fire in northern California is out of control burning 54,000 acres within 24 hours.  The residents of Susanville are preparing to flee as the flames continue racing closer.  Meanwhile, Pacific Gas & Electric announced today that in anticipation of the out-of-control firestorm are cutting power to 50,000 homes and businesses.
  89. 2021 Wednesday BB: Natural Disasters News– The death toll from last week’s 7.2-magnitude earthquake that slammed Haiti continues to rise what with 2,000-plus deaths.
  90. 2021 Wednesday CC: War on Terror News-Terrorism News-Jihad News– Former U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott says that there are large numbers of known terrorists crossing the southern border into the United States.  Meanwhile, we learned that back in 2014, President Barack Hussein Obama freed the Taliban hoodlums overseeing the takeover of Afghanistan in exchange for disgraced U.S. Army deserter, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.  (Should have sent Sgt. Bergdahl to the gallows, Mr. “Forty-Fourth President.”
  91. 2021 Wednesday DD: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former First Lady Rosalyn Carter celebrates her 94th birthday.  Happy birthday, Madam First Lady!
  92. 2021 Wednesday EE: Fake News I– Governor “Killer” Cuomo’s brother Chris “Fraido” Cuomo says he wrote one of his older brother’s statements regarding the initial charges of sexual harassment and assault.  Fire the POS, CNN.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com stooge Mark Zuckerberg says that ‘Facebook removed 18 million COVID-19 misinformation posts.’  (Note- that means that anyone who shared a different view of this Chi-Com, lab-engineered disease, their posts and possibly their accounts got whacked).
  93. 2021 Wednesday FF: Arizona State News– Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, fighting to keep his seat, says he will financially penalize any school district that imposes a mask mandate on students.  
  94. 2021 Wednesday GG: California State News– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom says the Golden State will ‘gladly welcome all Afghan refugees’ (and hopefully get them registered to vote before the September 14, 2021, recall election).
  95. 2021 Wednesday HH: Florida State News– COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the Sunshine State thanks to the Biden regime’s internecine war to dump massive numbers of illegal aliens there so as to drive UP the numbers of cases.  In Orange County, wastewater treatment plants report an increase of 600-percent of COVID-19 detections in the water.  This is not because of the freedom these people enjoy but because of the dumping of hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants across the state in the dead of night.
  96. 2021 Wednesday II: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov reportedly is filing for his pension benefits.  Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is leading in the Democratic Party’s primary race according to new polls.
  97. 2021 Wednesday JJ: Texas State News– The Texas Supreme Court affirmed today that the ‘fugitive Democrats’ can undergo arrest as soon as the idiots return to the Lone Star State.
  98. 2021 Wednesday KK: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3587 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 09, 22, 38, 39, 45, and Mega 02.  Out of 83,101 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had five numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $7,732 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Golden Snack Shop in Carson, CA 90745 (2) Calamart in Sunnyvale, CA 94087 (3) Shell in Los Angeles, CA 90021 and (4) 7-Eleven in Chula Vista, CA 91911.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #863 with a jackpot of $274 million up for grabs: 35, 36, 51, 55, 61, and Power 26.  Out of 92,804 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,670.
  99. 2021 Wednesday LL:  The Wrap-Up– You know, mis amigos, I have worked more than my share of places across the country and all I can say is that in my estimation, I think that the Biden ‘whisperer’ in the ear of old Joe- Barack Hussein Obama- has now abandoned his proxy.  It appears that Joe is little more than a senile babe in the woods now, abandoned by all.  We have yet to even see Dr. Jill around anywhere, it is as if he is alone, forlorn, and abandoned and this is concerning, genuinely concerning.  My colleagues here have suggested that the time is NOW for the downfall of the United States, in much the same way as the Soviet Union imploded, so, too, are we, because our enemies have maneuvered us into this position through corrupting our elections and giving us the “Manchurian Candidate.”  The question is, will we allow our government to go after us or will we stand tall and fight back?  I will leave you with this: I know many, many Democrats and the ones who voted FOR Joe Biden now wish they had cast their votes for Trump.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it- there is still hope.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.
  100. 2022 Thursday:  Rep. Liz Cheney- a woman we lovingly have labeled “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney due to her obsessive-compulsive desire to destroy President Donald J. Trump- cannot read the writing on the wall.  The voters of Wyoming said, ‘NO MORE, go the hell away.’  At least that pathetic little piece of crap Adam Kinzinger from Illinois had sense enough NOT even to run for another term.  He knew he was going down months ago so he decided not to run for another term as he would have gone down by 30 points or more as did his associate.  The short Tik-Tok video Kinzinger released saying ‘it was not the end of my career (just not going to win re-election) and that at some point, I will be back.’  Sure.  If it makes you feel better, continue saying it.  As for Lyin’ Liz, at her farewell rally last night in Jackson, Wyoming, about 50 people listened to her compare herself to Abraham Lincoln.  Somehow, she believes she can return even though she was BLOWN OUT.  She believes she can somehow challenge President Trump in 2024 at best and at worst, defeat him by running third party.  Okay, if thinking this wets your panties, good for you.  We suspect, however, that unless she goes on MSNBC or CNN or perhaps even CNBC, she will disappear along with her POS father.  It’s people like her- and her father’s ‘stimulating campaign commercial’ that doomed her to the crapper- that make us wish we could take back the votes we gave him and W. back in 2000 and again in 2004.  Had the Democrats only run better candidates back then- better than Vice President Al Gore in 2000 and something radically different than ‘Lurch’ in 2004, we might not have languished under the military-industrial-political complex, but they did not.  Liz, take a bow and get the f**k out and take that evil f**king father of yours with you.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trump revoked the security clearance of “former communist” Obama era CIA Director John Brennan, the ousted Deep State apparatchik penned an opinion piece in the New York Times entitled, “President Trump’s Claims of No Collusion are Hogwash.” What an angry POS. Like a pit bull attacking another dog, this scumbag cannot let go of the Obama administration’s dastardly set-up of Trump and the people around him in order to destroy his presidency.  Meanwhile, the House Oversight Committee’s ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings demanded an ‘explanation’ from President Trump for revoking Brennan’s security clearance.  Still waiting, we think.

  52. 2020 Monday: Word is now out that New York City- under the watchful eye of Mayor Bill Di Blasio- pot-smoking, Marxist mayor- is on the brink of permanent decline thanks to the mismanagement of both Mayor Bill Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo- both Democrats. Currently, there are 13,177 vacant apartments in the city, a 177-percent increase over last year compiled with a drop of 23-percent of new lease signings.  In the past weekend of violence, thugs shot fifty-one people and four killed (76 people shot during the entire week) and no one seems to care.  Business owners boarded up their storefronts, residents fled to other states, and the duplicitous Democrats seem not to care.  Meanwhile, over the weekend, gangbanging ruffians shot sixty-four people and killed at least five in Chicago.  The time is NOW to charge these Blue State governors and Blue City mayors with DERELICTION OF DUTY.  They must face federal charges and prison time for their criminal neglect and felonious mismanagement of their locales.  Elsewhere, Nancy Pelosi calls for Congress to reconvene to pass an emergency bill to fund the USPS but not to help the tens of millions of Americans affected by the Chinese Bat Flu Virus.  Shame on her!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump- on the way out to stump across America while the Democrats commence their national convention via Zoom and Skype authorizes aid for Iowa, ravaged by violent storms over the previous week.    
  53. 2020 Monday A: Rush Limbaugh- on his radio show today- shared the news that many countries around the world are using hydroxychloroquine behind the scenes to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. He pointed out that the African nation of Uganda is a big-time user of hydroxychloroquine to fight endemic malaria. Here are their number of confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus: 1,500, 13 confirmed deaths, and 1,142 confirmed recoveries.  Leftist Democrats, what flipping more proof do you criminal scumbags require to know that Plaquenil is great for fighting this disease?  Enough is enough!  Give everyone hydroxychloroquine NOW!
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: At the Democratic Convention, here is the lineup for speakers for TONIGHT: former First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, Sen. Doug Jones, D-AL, Rep.

Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, former 2016 presidential candidate and Gov. John Kasich, OH, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman. What a lineup!  Interesting note: we heard through the grapevine that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is backing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat challenger- Shahid Buttar, another Democrat- in the November Elections.  Mr. Buttar is a Muslim lawyer, a person who graduated from Stanford Law School in 2003.  Boy, that takes some balls (for AOC, which is.  This is what Pelosi gets for giving the former Sandy Cortez 60 seconds to speak at the DNC Convention!  My-my!).

[xiii] Let us look at one other location- Nevada: $4.062.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Cabo Verde: $5.363 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,652,985,232,767 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xv].  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Taiwan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Hong Kong with $224 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The Navy SEAL who shot jihadist Osama bin Laden- Rob O’Neill- says that Joe Biden- aka the Antitrump- is a ‘disaster.’ “Doomed from the start”- so says a Special IG report- the plan of building a stable democracy in Afghanistan.  The Taliban, sounding like peaceniks promise peace in the country and women’s rights under the guiding light of a kind and loving (false) deity, Allah.  Sure, right, of course women are going to enjoy ‘rights.’  Meanwhile National Security Adviser to slobbering Joe Biden- Jake Sullivan- says the ‘Taliban has guaranteed the right of all those who wish to leave the country uncontested passage to the airport.’  The young adviser also says that the regime will ‘hold the Taliban accountable for any wrongdoing.’  Sure, Jake, sure.  He also made the astonishing claim that the regime planned for ‘all contingencies’ in withdrawing the military (even though they left thousands of Americans behind and thousands of fellow NATO troops).  The former ambassador to Kabul under President Barack Hussein Obama- a man who criticized President Donald J. Trump as much as he could- now says there are severe doubts as to the ‘mental fitness’ of the ‘commander in chief’ to hold the office he supposedly won on November 03, 2020.
  65. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must. Today is Day No. 147 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 53rd day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $443,797,664.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $250,306,854,912.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,656,444.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,565,444.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  66. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– As things continue worsening in Afghanistan, the Taliban is going door to door seeking Western allies as well as compiling lists of girls and women aged 12 to 45 so the fatigued veterans of the Taliban army can marry them, settle down, and have families when they are not busy lopping off heads. However, be glad because the Biden regime is going to probe Afghan deaths at the Kabul airport, you know, the ones that fell to their deaths clinging to the landing gear.  These poor people were so afraid that they threw common sense to the winds and clung to the C-130 cargo jets.  Some managed to affix themselves to the aircraft but died at the elevation due to lack of oxygen while others plummeted thousands of feet to crash on the ground.
  67. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Joe Biden is extending the mask mandate for all travel in the U.S. via airplanes, buses, and railroads until 2022.  As COVID-19 cases surge in Florida, additional school districts are defying “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ order on NO masks in schools.
  68. 2021 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $50.42 (2) AstraZeneca $59.35 (3) Johnson & Johnson $179.47 (4) BioNTech $366.27 (5) Moderna $401.86. As we say, IF you desire to know the reason for the PUSH-PUSH-PUSH to get the vaccines and now with talk of everyone having to undergo a third round of this crap, all one must do is to follow the money.  Politicians invest in BIG PHARMA, they invest their money there because the recipients who suffer adverse reactions cannot sue the companies associated with vaccines, it is as if they have a ‘get-out-of-jail-free card’ when it comes to dealing with costly lawsuits.  Who would not want to put money into stocks such as these?  We sure the heck are putting more money into the stocks of pharmaceutical companies manufacturing Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.   IF the Chi-Coms continue releasing one variant after another, the vaccine companies will continue making new boosters which the U.S. government will buy with taxpayer dollars so they can distribute them “FREE” to all Americans and across the world.  The drug makers will then donate money back to the Democrats in the ongoing money-go-round.  Like union dues and donations to Democrats, this is a tried-and-true way with which the Dems and their RINO allies reap in the big bucks. 
  69. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden News I– Apparently, a reporter asked Joe Biden on his 2010 comments on America’s duty to defend the Afghan people. His reply to them now is “F— that.”  Well, there you go, Joe.  Oh, it is interesting to note that Joe Biden is back at Camp David, ostensibly on vacation but we know the ‘Manchurian Candidate’ is undergoing his weekly tune-up.  Without such tune-ups, he would be unable to speak coherently to anyone for longer than a minute or two.  
  70. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Biden regime continues its implosion, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘America’s enemies are laughing at the U.S. over its abject failure’ in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, says of Joe Biden that he does NOT deserve to remain in office.  The White House reports that (much like our botched withdrawal from Iraq) the Taliban has obtained loads of U.S. military hardware and equipment including drones and Blackhawk helicopters (so says Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district) and other equipment which we all know will be wending its way to communist China, Russia, and Iran for evaluation.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.   Meanwhile, as drought conditions worsen in the western states, governors in the region are pushing Joe Biden to declare a disaster so FEMA can activate and begin providing help.  Finally, the regime is hinting it is going to give the ‘cold shoulder’ to former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
  71. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– We learned today that Rep. Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and a ‘cancel rent’ advocate own numerous rental properties and collected rents from all of them. How come you did not cancel rents for your clients, “Chrome Dome?”
  72. 2021 Tuesday N: Big Tech News– Senator Marco Rubio is urging Joe Biden to ban TikTok following the Chi-Coms taking a major stake in the company.
  73. 2021 Tuesday O: New York State News– New Yorkers are growing angrier with both the mayor of the BIG APPLE and the soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov. First, 52-percent of New Yorkers want to see Governor Cuomo to face criminal charges while Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio faces lawsuits over his imposition of vaccine passports for all people seeking to dine indoors or to patronize other indoor businesses.  “No shot, no proof, no service” is the order of the day (unless, of course, you are a Christian baker and a couple of hardcore homos demand you bake them a ‘wedding cake’).  One shot won’t be enough, for a customer to partake of the ‘delights’ of New York City, a customer must be fully vaccinated and when boosters arrive, one must have proof of full vaccination.  Of course, this is not going over well with residents of the Big Apple- especially black, brown, and other minorities who view the government with suspicion and the lawsuits slamming into “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio are CIVIL RIGHTS lawsuits.  You see, “Killer” Cuomo and “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio through their harsh orders are turning blacks, browns, and others into second-class citizens.
  74. 2021 Tuesday P: Texas State News– Fully-vaccinated Lone Star State Governor Greg Abbot, GOP, tested positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu although he is asymptomatic and will undergo self-imposed quarantine for 1-2 weeks.

  75. 2021 Tuesday Q: Sports News I– The comeback of Tim Tebow ends as the Jacksonville Jaguars cut him loose. In other sports news, NFL great quarterback Brett Favre says parents should not permit their kids to play tackle football until age 14.
  76. 2021 Tuesday R: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1686 what with a $242 million jackpot on the line: 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24. 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24.  Stick around and discover the winners… Out of 97,147 winning tickets, the highest winners were 67 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $408 apiece.
  77. 2021 Tuesday S: Amigos, I am afraid that the Antitrump is leaving Americans behind in Afghanistan while flying jihadis interlaced with Afghan refugees into the U.S. to conduct terror attacks, attacks the bogus regime will lay at the feet of WHITE SUPREMACISTS. Once they tar and feather white folks with whatever jihadist attacks occur here, instead of going after the Islamists themselves, they will go after white people like Hitler and the Nazis went after the Jews.  Most all of us agree that the people behind Joe Biden are using white people as their ‘Jews,’ isolate and attack them all the while turning the country into a Third World pisser.  Look, I am a Latino- “America’s favorite Cholo”- and I don’t want the country overrun with millions of Third World riffraff.  Unlike many, I am not afraid to say this, in fact, I will boldly proclaim it.  Joe has got to go; President Trump must return to the White House now.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.
  78. 2022 Wednesday: Looks like Liz Cheney went down in smoking defeat.  Good.  The sooner these ‘Republocrats’ are vanquished, the sooner we can reclaim America and restore law and order.  Oh, the RINOs are crying, oh, the Democrats sniveling, but they did not turn out to save her sorry ass as she was begging them.           Let me say something about Alaska’s election system, the ‘ranked choice voting.’  What a bunch of bullshit, much like California’s corrupt ‘top two vote-getters’ facing off in the general.  Anything that is not one U.S. citizen one vote is bogus, corrupt, and must go.  We must vote on Election Day.  Paper ballots.  NO skullduggery.  Absentee ballots must come postmarked no later than Election Day.  I mean, does the IRS allow 2, 3, 4, or more weeks for returns to come in past April 15?  Nope. Besides- as in California thanks to our corrupt system- the American Independent Party, the Libertarian Party, the Peace and Freedom Party, and the Green Party are NEVER on the general election ballot.  Why aren’t they launching all sorts of lawsuits and taking this crap up to the U.S. Supreme Court and getting this corrupt, Democrat-favoring system tossed on the garbage heap?  I’m telling you.  Let us know what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

[xiii]

[xviii]        
  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.406 per gallon, $3.012 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.896 in Washington state. [xix]    Let us look at one other location- New Mexico: $3.079.  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- Romania: $5.338 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,649,118,365,205 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Grand 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.
  68. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Here are the costs of the Afghan War: (1) 20 years, the longest U.S. war (2) U.S. military deaths: 2,448 (3) U.S. Military wounded: 20,719 (4) U.S. contractor deaths: 3,846 (5) direct costs: $2 trillion.  (6) Costs to 2050 for the American people: $6.5 trillion.  (Source: Newsmax).  (Note- the Western Roman Empire collapsed because (1) inability to control its borders (2) perpetual wars (3) never-ending political strife and (4) normalization of perversion, immorality, and loss of faith.  Sound like any country you might know?)  Meanwhile, former deputy CIA Director Mike Morell says that the collapse of Afghanistan is not an ‘intelligence failure’ but a ‘policy failure.’  Joe Biden is attempting to blame everyone else for his troubles than himself whereas President Harry S. Truman so famously said, “The buck stops here.”  Next, Politico stuck a journalistic dagger into the neck of dictator Joe Biden when they said his ‘chip on his shoulder’ is what caused the debacle the world is watching in Afghanistan as he would NOT listen to his generals.  In other Afghan-related news, at least seven desperate people are dead from falling several thousand feet from outbound aircraft at the Kabul airport.  Meanwhile, outside the White House, Afghan Americans are protesting the White House usurper by shouting, “THEY’RE KILLING OUR PEOPLE!”
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– today is Day No. 146 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 52 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Here are the numbers for illegal aliens and the cost of caring for them as provided by OAN.  First, the cost this day alone is: $652,723,151.  Next, here is the appalling cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country for just this year: $248,821,415,836.  Imagine the good that money could do for the American people and not the flotsam and jetsam of the Third World?  Next, here are the numbers of illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,555,525.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers for all time: 36,555,525.  Horrifying, simply horrifying.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks).
  70. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Talks between the Maduro regime in Venezuela and its opposition are underway in Mexico City.  Meanwhile, after months of turmoil in Malaysia, the prime minister who seized power in a coup relinquished it.  Next, Lebanese police officers and violent protesters clashed in the norther portion of the country where a fuel tank exploded over the weekend killing and injuring numerous people.  Elsewhere, as the U.S. flees out of Afghanistan, the Chi-Coms are telling Taipei to reconsider their belief that the U.S. will come to their rescue when the People’s Liberation Army begins landing on Taiwanese beaches.  Meanwhile, the U.N. Security Council pushes for talks to bring about the formation of the new government in the new Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– As the Taliban continues accumulating and securing power across Afghanistan, Taliban thugs both inside and outside the empty U.S. embassy are chanting, “Death to America, death to America, death to America.”  Nice they love us so much.  Meanwhile, at the airport in Kabul, U.S. troops in two difference incidents shoot dead a pair of Taliban thugs.  Chaos at the airport has put a hold on exit flights.  As the catastrophe unfolds, dictator Joe Biden says he stands by his decision ‘to flee Afghanistan and to leave the people to the mercies of the Taliban.’  Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that this is “Saigon on steroids.”
  72. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– today Health experts announced that ‘herd immunity may never be achieved with COVID-19.’ Meanwhile, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the American people must ‘set aside personal liberties so we can join forces to do battle with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’ (It is ALWAYS, we must surrender our God-given personal liberties to climb aboard the BIG GOVERNMENT train).
  73. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– An Indiana man found himself in the intensive care unit of his city after contracting flesh-eating bacteria following the consumption of raw oysters.  (Folks, we gave up eating raw oysters long ago and would recommend that everyone else do the same thing.  Besides, they do not do what people believe they do, it is all in the mind).
  74. 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Harvard University and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, medical professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff told Greg Kelly on Newsmax over the weekend that Joe Biden’s demand for vaccine mandates creates distrust of the vaccines in people who have already had the disease.  Dr. Kulldorff says it must stop.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Dr. Francis Collins- Director of National Institute of Health- says that ‘unvaccinated Americans pose more problems for the United States than do the millions of illegal aliens flooding into the country.’  What a party apparatchik.  In Colorado on the first day of school, masks and law enforcement officers are all over the place.  Speaking of schools and COVID-19, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that the feds ‘cannot pay off school superintendents’ to follow the regime’s orders.  Regarding Florida, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that ‘parents cannot sue over the mask ban’ he put into place with an executive order.
  75. 2021 Monday M: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $48.91 (2) AstraZeneca $58.75 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.84 (4) BioNTech $343.10 (5) Moderna $373.86.  As we say, IF you wish to understand the reason for the BIG PUSH that everyone ‘get vaccinated’ or undergo immediate transport to Devil’s Island or to a leper colony (as well as all the mask mandates), just follow the money.  Politicians and bigwigs and other titans of the globe all are invested in these companies, companies that CANNOT BE SUED no matter how badly one is affected by a vaccine, which also gives them incredible power over the people they rule.
  76. 2021 Monday N: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Arizona announces that the week of August 22, 2021, is when they will release the preliminary report on the election fraud and corruption that went on in the Copper State surrounding the November 2020 Elections.  Meanwhile, as the disastrous Biden regime stumbles about like a punch-drunk boxer, we hope that more states will begin audits of the 2020 Elections because this disastrous mess cannot continue much longer.  Yes, we do miss President Donald J. Trump and he must return to the White House.  Those involved in the rampant election fraud and corruption must go to prison if not to the gallows for their crimes and perfidy.  There are many, many traitors who must pay the price for their betrayal, their disloyalty, and their treachery.  Chef Hector Santanamos Del Soto.
  77. 2021 Monday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Now that Joe Biden has sold out the Afghan people to the Taliban and- even worse– to the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump asks the question: ‘who will Joe Biden sell out next?’  The President also slammed the usurper in the White House for his ‘grossly incompetent’ abandonment of Afghanistan to the jihadists. 
  78. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden News I– Afghan Americans arrived outside the White House over the past weekend protesting the abandonment of their country to the cruel jihadist hoodlums.  Speaking of senile Joe Biden, chief pollster at the Trafalgar Group, Robert Cahaly- says that ‘Joe Biden is more popular than his policies.’  All day, the White House said that Joe Biden was ‘going to address the American people’ on the mess in Afghanistan.  Finally, he did and did what all of us knew he would: blame President Donald J. Trump and the Afghan people for being losers.  Wow.  The Deputy National Security Adviser Jonathan Finer says there will be ‘grave consequences for the Taliban if the riffraff interfere in the U.S. withdrawal from Kabul and across Afghanistan.’  Even worse for Joe Biden is his reluctance to give American citizens priority in the evacuation out of the destabilized Central Asian country.
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. State Department said earlier today that ALL U.S. embassy staff is at the airport in Kabul but thanks to the pandemonium occurring there, the U.S. authorities on the ground have suspended outbound flights until control can be reestablished.   Meanwhile, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley is defending his misguided assessment as to the strength of the Taliban.  (Note- Gen. Milley, you sound like the Nazis who underestimated Russian troop strength in late 1941 through 1942.  YOU must resign, sir.  NOW).  In other Biden regime news, Joe says the USDA is going to permanently increase food stamp benefits, i.e., SNAP benefits, because there are millions of foreign invaders who need to eat.  In other Biden regime news, the Bidenistas are filing a challenge to a recent court order to revive President Donald J. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Come on, Joe, we have enough illegal aliens in the country.  Can’t we stop already? 
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News I– As things continue deteriorating in Afghanistan, Vice President Mike Pence places the blame for the calamity unfolding there squarely atop the culprit responsible: drooling Joe Biden.  Former Army General (and CIA Director) David H. Petraeus says that ‘no good can come from the precipitous abandonment of Kabul to the Islamists.’  Security experts are now saying that ‘another 9-11-style attack is only a matter of time’ (especially with wide-open borders).  As things worsen in Kabul, the Republican Party is demanding the resignations of Joe Biden, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.  (Speaking of ‘Cryin’ Chuck,’ he is outraged over the need to crack down on fake China Virus vaccine cards.  Chuck- f**k you).
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News II– An angry House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is demanding that the House of Representatives launch a probe into the abrupt collapse of Afghanistan.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, says that ‘Joe Biden takes the final blame for the collapse of Afghanistan.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s arrogance led to the turmoil in Afghanistan.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell is accusing the Biden regime of outing U.S. intelligence officers on Twitter.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Political News III– Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies told Newsmax that Joe Biden may be unable to control the amount of Afghan refugees who will try to enter our country.  Next, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should resign from office over the disaster in Afghanistan.’   U.S. GOP Senate campaign Chairman Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, is floating the idea that the time is now to use the 25th Amendment to get enfeebled old Joe Biden out of the White House ASAP.  Former National Security Adviser to President Donald J. Trump- H.R. McMaster- says that ‘Joe Biden’s humanitarian disaster will equate with increased security risks for the United States.’  Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Joe Biden is the most incompetent commander-in-chief in the past forty years’ (the other one being President Jimmy Carter).   (Note- Joe Biden claims he will not repeat the past mistakes made by three other presidents in Afghanistan).   
  83. 2021 Monday U: Political News IV– Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, says that ‘firings must occur surrounding the debacle in Afghanistan.’  Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says that ‘Joe Biden ignored warnings regarding Afghanistan and now owns the disaster.’  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, told Greg Kelly on Newsmax that the ‘administration had NO plan with which to evacuate our embassy or the people who fought alongside us in the Central Asian hellhole.’  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says ‘we should have maintained a presence at Baghram Air Base instead of leaving it to the enemy.’  Both agree that WHEN we have to return to the ‘graveyard of empires,’ the Taliban will be better armed with U.S. abandoned weapons of all types.’
  84. 2021 Monday V: Miscellaneous News I– The federal government is giving Florida $500 million to help with the manatee crisis.  Meanwhile, the U.S. National Park Service is making masks mandatory at all parks in the U.S.
  85. 2021 Monday W: Business News– The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration- the NHTSA for short- is probing issues regarding autopilot in Tesla motor vehicles.
  86. 2021 Monday X: Mass Shootings News– It appears to have been a quiet weekend in Chicago what with eight dead and fifty-six injured in shootings across the Windy City.
  87. 2021 Monday Y: Big Tech News– Google whistleblower Scott Voorhies says that his employer changed its algorithms to unfairly target President Donald J. Trump throughout 2020.  To keep unwelcome news trending for President Trump, they would attach old stories to new ones to keep them pushed up to the front of the pack.  Elsewhere, T-Mobile is probing claims that hackers ripped off the data of 100 million users.
  88. 2021 Monday Z: Environmental News I– As we have said for close to a decade now, the Sun is the driver of all climate change, NOT CO2.  Well, a new study confirms that but observe this: solar activity- sunspots, solar flares, and solar winds- ebbs and flows.  When there is more activity, the entire Solar System warms up and when there is less, it cools down.  IF you get rid of ALL carbon dioxide emissions, plants will wither and die, oxygen production will fall off, and eventually, you end up with a planet like Mars.  All one must do to learn the truth is to find unbiased university professors willing to teach truthful geography classes and not this dumb-ass Marxist ‘global warming’ bulls**t dimwits such as AOC, Al Gore, and Greta Thunberg run around squealing and crying about.  Wake up, dummies.
  89. 2021 Monday AA: Natural Disasters News– Like California, wildfires are raging across Spain.  Meanwhile, one person died over the weekend as a party boat sailing the calm waters of Lake Conroe in the Texas town of Conroe flipped over when a freak storm crashed into the ship.  The two-story craft had fifty-three people aboard when the mishap occurred, and an older man died at the hospital following injuries sustained in the accident.
  90. 2021 Monday BB: California State News– As Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom continues sobbing that the “GOP is trying to get me in the recall election,’ today, we learned that copious quantities of bond money set aside to build water infrastructure in the Golden State is just sitting there, unused.  Damn it, Gov. Newsom, if you even cared about your job, get work underway NOW on the Sacramento Delta diversion project that will safely send northern California water south to the farmers and the citizens of the state.  Loser.  Regarding “Nazi” Newsom, a new poll (supposedly) claims Golden State voters find themselves split in the recall effort to remove the WORST governor in all fifty states and five territories.
  91. 2021 Monday CC: Nevada State News– Former Republican Silver State Attorney General Adam Laxalt has filed papers to compete against sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, D-NV, for the seat in November 2022.  
  92. 2021 Monday DD: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov (who says his mother was the one who imbued his scandalous behavior into him when he was a youngster) says, “I could have beaten impeachment.”  Then why are you leaving, you corrupt POS?  Even as Cuomo is in the process of exiting the governor’s office, he issued a mandate today: ALL Empire State health care professionals MUST undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Wow.  What a loser.
  93. 2021 Monday EE: Oklahoma State News– Patriotic Oklahomans demonstrated at their state capital over the weekend, protesting the Chi-Vi vaccine and mask mandates government is trying to foist onto them. 
  94. 2021 Monday FF: Texas State News– A Texas Supreme Court justice issues a temporary injunction against Lone Star State Democrats seeking to disobey Governor Greg Abbott’s ban on mask mandates in the schools and in public life.  Meanwhile, Texans will soon be able to open carry firearms without permits.
  95. 2021 Monday GG: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed actor Johnny Depp says that Hollywood is ‘boycotting me.’
  96. 2021 Monday HH: The Wrap Up– Prophesy- how soon will we see landing craft doors slamming down on Taiwanese beaches, the subjugation of Ukraine, Islamism spreading like wildfire throughout all of Central Asia, and Cuban and Venezuelan hegemony dispersing through all of Latin America?  With the Antitrump in the White House, we suspect it will begin soon… El Chilote predicts this on this day…
  97. 2022 Tuesday: The plot against President Donald J. Trump continues to grow by the day.  I would like to ask the readers of our blog, did you ever think- since we began back in 2009 writing for the Chi-Com blog site, Choseit.com, that we would have the misfortune of seeing the collapse of our country into Venezuela-style socialism?  Oh, it might not be that way at the moment, folks, but if we do not continue kicking butt from today onward and into 2024, it will be here before you know it.  You folks in Alaska- send Senator Lisa Murkowski packing and elect Kelly Tshibaka and Sarah Palin.  You folks in Wyoming, send that godawful witch “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney packing.  It is time to reclaim our country and to continue reclaiming it.  It’s that or troubled times for all of us but only if we allow it.  I seriously doubt my fellow Americans will permit this to befall our wonderful country.  We know we won’t.  Tell me what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  68. 2020 Wednesday: Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris make their first appearance as a ticket in Wilmington, Delaware, today.  The former vice president was able to follow the teleprompter most of the way but there were a few times when he began to falter.  Perhaps he requires a shock collar around his neck so every time his eyes begin going fuzzy and his words fall by the wayside, Dr. Jill can give him a quick ZAP to pull him back on course.   Just saying.   Note: the Biden-Harris campaign raised $10.8 million within four hours of announcing that “Groping Joe” Biden had chosen the unpopular California senator to be his vice president.  Hmmm.

[xiv]    Let us look at one other location- North Dakota: $3.131.  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- Senegal: $5.250 per U.S. Gallon. [xv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,633,797,855,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xvi] Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 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.
  78. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,923,443.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,725,319,325.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,507,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,507,919. [xvii]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  Reports also say that during the month of July there were 212,000 border crossings, something unseen in 21 years.
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– On behalf of the people of Cuba, the U.S. Senate passed a bill before fleeing D.C. for the summer that will provide uncensored internet to the freedom-fighting peoples rebelling against the communist government.  (Note- why not provide them guns, senators?).  In other news from across the world, the Taliban has overrun Kandahar and the Pentagon now predicts the fall of Kabul in a month or less.  Can anyone remind us again as to WHY we remained in that spineless crap-hole of a nation and shed the lives and limbs of our troops as well as trillions of dollars?  Let the Chi-Coms have the place.  Worse, the Biden regime is sending 3,000 U.S. troops BACK into Afghanistan to help evacuate our embassy in Kabul.  This is crazy.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Always seeking to set the template for the country, California becomes the first state in the Union to require EVERY teacher and staff member at all schools to undergo vaccination for the Chi-Vi or to face weekly, invasive tests for the wily Chi-Com disease.  The Oxford University vaccinations group say that ‘herd immunity is impossible to achieve with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu variants.’  Sounds like yet another excuse to keep the American people locked down.  Good luck with that.  Next, as government continues trying to force the American people to undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis, we learn today that Pfizer’s vaccine is effective 43-percent while Moderna’s is effective 76-percent against the Delta variant.
  81. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of the vaccines, let us look at the stock prices of the BIG FOUR pharmaceutical companies.  Remember, since the advent of vaccines for the Chi-Vi there are forty new BIG PHARMA billionaires ALL from selling the vaccines to the U.S. government.  First, Pfizer’s stock is low, valued at $47.24 today.  Next, Johnson & Johnson’s stock price is $175.17.  After J & J comes BioNTech at $374.02 and last but not least, the market values Moderna’s stock at $391.42.  We will keep our eyes on BIG PHARMA stocks.  Meanwhile, because of the increase in Chi-Vi cases thanks to the surge of infected illegal aliens along the southern border, Facebook has ordered office workers NOT to return to the office until January 2022.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, DS-PA, launches his order today that stipulates ALL city employees and contractors (and visitors) MUST get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine or wear masks (and suffer treatment like second class citizens).
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s polling ratings continue their ominous, downward slide yet no mainstream media news anchor is discussing his crumbling lack of popularity.  (They want to keep the regime propped up).  Meanwhile, first mentioned yesterday, Joe Biden is begging- begging! – OPEC and Russia to increase production so he can find a way to lower surging gasoline prices in the United States.  All the befuddled old fool must do is to get the hell out of the way and allow American production of fossil fuel energy to soar.
  84. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– The CIA is weighing the establishment of a communist China division in a bid to ‘out-spy’ the Chi-Coms.  We are sorry but this something that the Central Intelligence Agency should have been created back in the 1990s.  We cannot believe this but if true, it shows how pathetic our government is at recognizing true threats around the world.  Like the eye of Sauron, BIG GOVERNMENT is searching for homegrown terrorists.  What a load of festering crap.
  85. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– As Democrats continue waging war on Mike Lindell’s cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota- both cyber and even physical as in the case of Mr. Lindell himself- President Donald J. Trump says that the Democrats ‘MUST NOT be allowed to get away with the murder of Ashli Babbitt.  President Trump also said that the Dems’ $35 trillion budget bill is a ‘communist plot to destroy the United States.’  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Democrats’ spending will erode Americans’ freedoms and drive-up inflation.’  Meanwhile, Twitter suspends Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account for- shock of shocks- another week.  Rep. Greene as you all know represents the 14th congressional district in the Peach State. 
  86. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says- get this- that he has ‘serious concerns’ about his fellow Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  (Note- we predict that he will vote for it anyway).  In other Democrat-related news, following the resignations or retirements of almost one-thousand Chicago police officers as well as the horrible murder of new mom and officer Ella French, Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot is requesting a sizable increase for the Windy City police officers.  Speaking of Democrats, soon-to-be-governor of the Empire State- Kathy Hochul- is doing everything she can to distance herself from outbound Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  Some say she may have had a hand in ALL the nursing home deaths of COVID-19 patients.
  87. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $7 million in the month of July.  Regarding the GOP, they managed to block the “For the People Act” from coming to a vote before everyone in Washington, D.C., flees the capital for August recess.  When they return, the Democrats will force it through to Joe Biden’s desk.  Speaking of the Democrats, House Blue Dogs begged Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, to hold a standalone vote on the ‘infrastructure bill’ but she said, “No dice.”  Meanwhile, a new poll says that a ‘majority of Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism.’  (Note- that is brainwashing for you.  We must reclaim our schools).    
  88. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– President Donald J. Trump endorsed former U.S. Navy Seal Derrick Van Orden to win the seat of retiring Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district.  Van Orden ran for the seat back in 2020 and lost it by 3-points.  We expect he will do much better with President Trump’s endorsement in 2022.  President Trump also says that the American people are turning off Fox News.  In other news, mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, running to replace Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, DS-NYC, said that CNN ‘must fire Governor Cuomo’s brother Chris.’  Amen.
  89. 2021 Thursday Q: Miscellaneous News I– A Georgia mother claims her kids’ elementary school district segregated them.  Thus, she is taking the fight to the Department of Education’s Civil Rights Division for resolution.  It is that flipping Criminal Race, uh, Critical Race Theory BS yet again.  Speaking of the DOE, Secretary Miguel Cardona backs forced vaccinations for ALL public schools’ staff members- NO exceptions.  Elsewhere, it appears that Jaime Spears, the leech-like father sucking daughter Britney dry, has relinquished his role as conservatorship.
  90. 2021 Thursday R: New York State News– New York State Rep. Colin Schmitt, R-NY 99th Assembly District, says that the ‘Cuomo impeachment probe must continue.’  Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, questions WHY Governor Cuomo is stick around for two weeks- is he destroying evidence? 
  91. 2021 Thursday S: Texas State News– The Lone Star State’s election security bill passed in the Texas State Senate.  Meanwhile, as various Democrat-controlled locales in the state attempt to stymie the NO MASK MANDATE order signed by Governor Greg Abbott, via the courts, he is taking the fight to the scoundrel Democrats.  Moreover, he is also telling mentally deficient Joe Biden to ‘let Texas produce our oil.’  Next- and this is a good one- the NAACP is urging the Department of Justice to launch a probe into the arrest warrants for the wayward Democrats still hiding out in Washington, D.C.  “Racist,” don’t you know to expect the elected politicians to do their frigging jobs.
  92. 2021 Thursday T: Weather News I– Democrats across the country are huddling in corners, wetting their undergarments because of sizzling summer weather in North America.  Many cities are declaring heat advisories.  Oh, heaven forbid.
  93. 2022 Friday: Yesterday, we witnessed one of the most nauseating spectacles ever: Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland laying out the groundwork for why he launched the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  What an embarrassment this man is to both the legal profession and the country.  I will say now that he will become the second U.S. AG to go to prison, in the footsteps of John N. Mitchell, the nation’s 67th U.S. attorney general.  I suspect there will be MORE members of the fraudulent Biden regime going to the federal slammer than there were members of the Nixon administration, starting at the very top and going down to various denizens of the Deep State.  I suspect the only one not going to the slammer will be poor Kamala, “California’s shame.”  That girl, my friends, is a blooming moron.   Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.[xviii]

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys next studio album came out on June 05, 2012: “That’s Why God Made the Radio.”  It’s been quite a while since the last studio album which is why the aging Beach Boys spent a lot of time in making this album with a reconfigured lineup: Brian Wilson (vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Bruce Johnston (vocals), Alan Jardine (vocals), and David Marks (guitars and vocals).  To perform the instruments, a humongous number of supporting musicians- including many of the touring band members- participated in the recording of the album.  Most critics enjoyed it, some even comparing it to “Sunflower” while several sourpuss losers panned it.  Say what you will about a band that’s been around for half-a-century, nothing is ever as it was but this is close enough.  Besides, this album hit No. 3 on the U.S. charts which was their highest placement in, uh, 38 years, so what more can be said?  Seek it out now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022

2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus. Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated. We knew something was wrong with these vaccines. It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House…

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 91

EVERYONE’S FAVORITE GERMAN CHEF: FRITZ SCHLEPENDRECHT

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022:

Randolph and Joseph McKenna; U.S. Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary James Loy; U.S. Interior Secretaries Orville H. Browning and William P. Clark Jr.; U.S. Secretary of State Edmund J.

  1. 70 Sunday: The Roman legions under the command of General Titus set the Second Temple of Jerusalem alight during the Great Jewish War.   The Romans had laid siege to Jerusalem due to a Jewish uprising and their murdering of a retreating Roman legion given ‘safe passage.’  This put in motion events that would lead to the destruction of the city, the ‘Wailing Wall’ being the only part of the city the Romans were unable to tear down.  Eventually, survivors who managed to escape the dying city would flee to Masada where the Romans would follow and destroy them.
  2. 654 Thursday: Cardinals elect Eugene I to succeed Martin I as Pope of all Christendom.  As the 75th Roman Catholic Pope, Eugene I would serve from today until June 2, 657.

  45. 1993 Tuesday: Ruth Bader Ginsburg undertakes the oath of office as the second female justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.  Elsewhere, President Bill Clinton signed a massive deficit-reduction bill into law on this date.

Bush chose Porter Goss, a Republican congressman and one-time spy, to lead the CIA.  Meanwhile, the 20-year-old woman who had accused Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers of rape filed a federal lawsuit in Denver against the NBA star.  However, the criminal charge was later dropped; the lawsuit was settled out of court, terms undisclosed.  Finally, Barry Bonds became the first player in Major League history to hit thirty home runs in thirteen consecutive seasons, connecting in San Francisco’s 8-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Elsewhere, a boat carrying Dominican illegal aliens seeking a better life in Puerto Rico drifted back to almost the same spot where they commenced their voyage, nearly two weeks earlier.  At least fifty-five of the eighty-six illegals on board died. 
  50. 2006 Thursday: British authorities announced they had thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up ten aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in hand luggage.  Ah, although left unsaid, one must love the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

  56. 2016 Wednesday: Candidate Donald J. Trump slams the ‘dishonest news media’ for misinterpreting his comments on how a ‘President Hillary Clinton will abolish the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.’  Sounds like the truth to everyone with half-a-mind or more; let us see who wins in November…
  57. 2017 Thursday: U.S. President Donald J. Trump announces that opioid addiction in the country now is a national emergency.  It has been for quite a while thanks to the People’s Republic of China continuing to ship fentanyl and other opiates into the United States as a reverse opium war of sorts.  People, time to start pushing the Chin back.  Meanwhile, as the #MeToo Movement continues to grind on, a sobbing Taylor Swift announces that deejay David Mueller groped her in Denver, Colorado.  Uh, okay…
  58. 2018 Friday:  The U.N. Committee on Human Rights receives word that the Chi-Coms have one million Uighurs- at least!- in concentration camps in western China where they provide slave labor to American sports team making gear and other paraphernalia while being indoctrinated with ‘how great Xi Jinping and Maoism are’ while being forced to surrender their religious beliefs.  Yet, American sports stars look the other way, folks, look the other way…

  60. 2020 Monday: The Chi-Coms today sanctioned 11 U.S. politicians or business heads, all of them Republicans or with organizations promoting democracy, seemingly in a feeble attempt at ‘punishing America’ for punishing them over their misdeeds in Hong Kong and elsewhere as well as for giving the world the Chinese Bat Plague.  Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, here are today’s statistics:  
  61. 2020 Monday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 19,936,547 confirmed cases, +202,119, 732,467 confirmed deaths, +3,855, and 12,144,510 confirmed recoveries, +142,973.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,159,740 confirmed cases, UP by 38,647 new cases, 165,118 confirmed deaths, UP by 477 new deaths, and 2,511,602 confirmed recoveries, UP by 13,023 new recoveries.

  64. 2020 Monday D: President Trump begins a press conference in the White House Press Room when an aide interrupts him and leads him away.  Apparently, shots were fired a few blocks from the White House.  Moments later, Secret Service had it under control and the president reappeared and continued his press conference.  He answered all questions and when done, exited the room. Currently, “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads the president in national polls by 49.2-percent to the president’s 42.00-percent. 
  65. 2020 Monday E: Speaking of the Chi-Coms earlier, the MSS begins arresting pro-democracy figures across Hong Kong, including arresting media mogul Jimmy Lai and his son, among others, as the communists begin implementing their new bogus ‘security law.’  The time is coming when the United States is going to have to give the commies in Beijing a major black eye.  How a return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as a free, independent nation, and the rightful ruler of the mainland.  FREE TAIWAN!  FREE HONG KONG!  FREE TIBET!  FREE MACAU!  FREE UIGHUR MUSLIMS!  DEATH TO COMMUNISM!
  66. 2020 Monday F: A U.S. military helicopter out of Joint Base Andrews was hit by groundfire over Middleburg, Va., today, wounding one crewmember aboard.  The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing at a regional airport in Manassas.  The FBI is investigating.  Meanwhile, over the weekend in Chicago, thirty-four people are shot, three of them fatally.  Will it never f—ing end?  How long have Democrats controlled the Windy City?

[vii]  
  68. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 315,875 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 88,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  69. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,076,572 confirmed cases, 64,852 confirmed deaths, and 2,129,828 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,827,450 confirmed cases, 39,934 confirmed deaths, and 2,306,339 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 47,376 confirmed cases, 543 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 498,096 confirmed cases, 6,235 confirmed deaths, and 235,124 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Utah: they have 441,131 confirmed cases, 2,511 confirmed deaths, and 421,906 confirmed recoveries. [viii]    
  70. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 910,569 confirmed cases, 6,571 confirmed deaths, and 867,747 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Isle of Man, 175th location on the list: 5,658 cases of the virus, thirty-three confirmed deaths and 4,821 confirmed recoveries.

[xiii]        
  72. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt AND Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.392 per gallon, $3.018 in Florida, $4.093 in Hawaii, and $3.875 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Montana: $3.292.  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- Zimbabwe: $5.113 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,626,623,832,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the United Kingdom, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 140 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 46th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $532,913,238.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,703,429,068.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,486,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,486,823. [xvii]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– House Republicans are demanding that the Department of Homeland Security explain why it has become so easy to swarm across the U.S.-Mexico border into the United States.  Illegal aliens are overwhelming the country and DHS is standing idly by.  This is becoming an invasion.  Because of the problems along the border, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has offered articles of impeachment for U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea threatened today to begin working anew on its nuclear weapons programs and missiles because South Korea and the United States are back to holding joint military exercises.  Elsewhere, a Chi-Com court upholds a death sentence imposed upon a Canadian ‘drug trafficker’ Robert Lloyd.  Canada should take note of this outrage because as a junior participant in the fraudulent 2020 Elections in the United States via their Dominion Voting Systems machines, look at how their Beijing masters have rewarded them- death sentence for a Canadian citizen.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci warns that ‘vaccine mandates are coming following full approval by the Food and Drug Administration of the various emergency use Chi-Vi vaccines.  (Note- Mike Lindell said at his symposium today in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, that the FDA can clear a drug for emergency use only if no other treatments of any kind exist for whatever the disease is.  This means that Democrats, RINOs, and the media assaulted President Donald J. Trump anytime he mentioned safe and cheap hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, they went berserk and tore great hunks of hair from their bald pates.  Interesting to know, Mr. Lindell, thank you).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, he and the Centers for Disease Control are finding themselves slammed with multiple lawsuits over the draconian lockdowns and harsh restrictions the mercurial Dr. Fauci and his partners in crime continue forcing on the American people.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Joe Biden says he likely does not have the power to interfere in various states’ anti-mask and anti-lockdown mandates but sure the heck is looking into it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– If one does not believe that communist thugs hold power in the United States, think again.  As Mesa County, Colorado, elections clerk Tina Peters was on her way to join Mike Lindell’s 72-hour cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, today, while she was aboard Mr. Lindell’s aircraft, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, Democratic-Socialist, and a ban of flunkies raided the election offices of Mesa County.  Denied entry to see what was going on over the course of the 3-4 hours the political hacks rooted through everything like hogs, sticking their snouts into every crevice, every nook, and every cranny, they were unable to witness the events, nor were they informed as to what the storm troopers removed.  Americans must take note of these fascist tactics.
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: 2020 Election Audit– Dominion Systems is suing Newsmax for reporting that the Canadian-based company whom the AICPENDBLOG.COM alleges works for the Chi-Coms.  Mike Lindell’s three-day cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, SD, continues exposing just how devious the voting machine company appears to be.  It is going to be difficult for this corrupt company to stand stark naked in the bright light of day so the more patriotic Americans and other patriots around the world call them out, the sooner we can achieve answers and rectify and repair the damage Dominion Systems has caused the world.  Additionally, Mike Lindell and his team of cyber experts appear to have found sufficient evidence to lay the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for conducting a massive cyber-attack on all fifty states on and around November 03, 2020.  Most Americans agree that this amounts to an act of war and when combined with the Chi-Coms’ release of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, there is much for which, the communist scumbags must answer.  We have said this before and will say it again, but the Wuhan Virus allowed them to kill two birds with one stone: first, it helped them get rid of Donald Trump via colluding with the Democrats, Trump-hating RINOs, and Dominion Voting Systems and second, it helped them crush the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.  For this, they must pay.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I– Regime leader Joe Biden claims ‘it’s up to Afghanistan to defend its own country as the Taliban overrun six provincial capitals.  Then, later in the day, the drooling moron says through his mouthpiece that ‘it’s not a foregone conclusion the Taliban is going to run the Middle Eastern country.’
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– We learned today that the National Security Administration’s inspector general is looking into allegations made by Fox News host Tucker Carlson that the NSA was ‘spying on me.’  We bet they will produce nothing and yet, the surveillance will continue.
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News I– Today is Day No. 1 for Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame to hold his cyber symposium and what an opening day it was.  IF you think Joe Biden truly won the 2020 Presidential Election, well, watch the symposium and let us know what you think AFTER viewing it.  We think Joe Biden is walking on thin ice which is why the Democrats are going bat crap crazy.
  83. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News II– Prominent Pro-Life group Susan B. Anthony List made its first political endorsement for the 2022 Mid-Term Elections by endorsing Governor Henry McMaster, R-SC.  Elsewhere, the Texas Supreme Court has upheld the arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats issued by Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX.  In other news, Eli Bremer, R-CO, is throwing his hat into the ring for a U.S. Senate seat in 2022.  Next, the Wyoming GOP has censured wayward Rep. Liz Cheney yet again.  Finally, Governor Tony Evers, DS-WI, has vetoed several election integrities bills.
  84. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News III– New York politicians are still angry at soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and have said they may well impeach the man so he cannot run for any statewide election ever again.  Interestingly enough, when queried by reporters about Governor Cuomo’s sexual harassment woes, Joe Biden said of his close friend and confidant that ‘Governor Cuomo sets the gold standard for Democrats.’[xviii]  Whoa, Joe.  In other political news, the Atlantic magazine reports that senile U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi will ‘most likely step down shortly after the conclusion of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.’  Sure.  Of course, she will.
  85. 2021 Tuesday R: U.S. Senate News I– Early today, the Senate planned to hold the final vote on the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Later in the day- with the help of 19 Republican scumbags- the Democrats ramrod this shyster bill through.  Once they rammed this bogus piece of dog feces through Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, trotted out the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill as the next chink in the Biden regime’s chain of collapsing the United States Cloward and Piven-style.  Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a brave patriot immediately offered fifteen amendments to this horrendous bill.  Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, told Newsmax that the Dems’ ‘infrastructure bill is going to add mountains of debt atop America’s taxpayers.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday S: Business News– Small business optimism that was riding high in July has plummeted in the first 10 days of August due to vast labor shortages.
  87. 2021 Tuesday T: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former U.S. Department of Agriculture official Richard Homan received a sentence of 180 days home confinement for his part in a bribery scandal.
  88. 2021 Tuesday U: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump expressed concern that the Biden regime’s U.S. Department of Justice will bury the Durham report should it become available for release.
  89. 2021 Tuesday V: New York State News– It appears that the headhunters have succeeded.  A morose, near-tears Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov announced that effective in 14 days, he will be vacating the office of governor of the Empire State.
  90. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Military News– The United States and twenty allied nations kick off the 2021 Southeast Asian Cooperation and Training, aka SEACAT, joint military exercises.
  91. 2021 Tuesday X: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1684 what with a $208 million jackpot on the line: 29, 45, 50, 59, 62, and Mega 12.  Out of 89,761 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,638 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday Y: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Oregon University volleyball coaches said today that they have the right to discipline their players over their political views.  Welcome BIG BROTHER.
  93. 2021 Tuesday Z: The Wrap-Up– It is better late than never, folks.  Last night, our computer systems were under continuous attack, either from the Chi-Coms or from our own government.  A miniscule blogging site such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM one would think would be small fish for BIG BROTHER apparatchiks going after the bigger guys but we guess NO ONE is too small for persecution and punishment.  Well, we say, “F**K them, we will continue fighting back because the American people are a free people, and we will never surrender to oppressive left-wing trash.  It is what it is, folks.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  94. 2022 Wednesday: There are so many other things of which to speak but what happened at Mar-a-Lago takes the cake.  The American people are clearly unhappy over the heavy-handedness exercised by the Justice Department and its Joestapo.  Imagine, the Joestapo arriving at your home, searching through everything, carting things away for inspection later?  All I can surmise is that the Biden regime wants to plant evidence on Donald Trump.  What will they ‘find,’ Ashley Biden’s diary, the one in which, she laments the gloomy fact that daddy, Joe, used to shower with her when she was a prepubescent girl?  We can put nothing past these people.  What I do know is this: people are angry, not just Republicans but Democrats, too.  Going down this path is un-American, one our nation can ill-afford yet the Biden regime seems to want to go down it.  I will say this: for every one of us they strike down, 10 more will spring up in their place which is why EVERYONE must rush out and begin buying firearms, ammo, and everything else they can because gun and ammo confiscation is coming soon.  Not going to be like Australia, New Zealand, or anywhere else for that matter, I can assure you.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht. 
  95. 2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus.  Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated.  We knew something was wrong with these vaccines.  It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House: BINGO!  I also fear that the millions of military-aged males deposited around the country will take to the streets just in time to keep people sequestered in their homes out of fear.  These people could very well become the Joestapo’s new Brown Shirts division, one with which to instill terror into the American people.  You heard it here first- we can put nothing past these people anymore.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

IF one lives long enough, musical moments from the past finally are released in the way in which, they should have been.  Thus, we have “The Smile Sessions” by the Beach Boys, released on Halloween, 2011.  Many believe “Smile”- had it been released back in 1967 to counter the Beatles’ epic “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” the Rolling Stones’ “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request,” the Small Faces’ “Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake,” the Kinks’ “Something Else” and “Face to Face,” as well as other epic psychedelic masterpieces, it would have been right there with them, most likely at the top.  The other Beach Boys- could not get behind Brian’s masterpiece, the one he created with lyricist Van Dyke Parks, and thus, it was chopped up, neutered, and made blasé which was a loss for the world.  Now, however, we have it the way in which it should have been released along with loads of added material which puts the listener smack dab in the midst of the recording process.  This is one for the ages, one we hope everyone will rush out, give a listen, and then add it to your ever-burgeoning collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music- you can thank us later.

[i] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig, Mick Abrahams, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Wild Turkey, and Paris on Monday, May 24, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  The presentation concluded on Sunday, October 03, 2021.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of this legend, but you can expect we will at some point within the next 20 years.

[iv] Moral of the story for the Brits- remember: Black Lives Matter, you cannot be gunning them down.  At least the United States is not the only nation contending with civil unrest in the streets.

[v] Commercials to this day continue encouraging citizens to come forth and join in class-action lawsuits against Monsanto, which is fine but whatever happened to personal responsibility?  When using f**king poisons, use protective gear!

[xviii] The ersatz president had more to say of his good friend, Governor Cuomo: “He’s done a hell of a job” and it’s “so sad to see him go.”  One groper to another.  In other Cuomo-related news, politicians such as former Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey and Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ 2nd congressional district, are demanding that investigations into the crumbling governor and unnecessary nursing home deaths for which, he bears SOLE RESPONSIBILITY continue.

  53. 2020 Sunday A: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington state- here are the stats, Golden State first: 554,160 confirmed cases, 10,293 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 3,346 confirmed cases, thirty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,511 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 66,523 confirmed cases, 1,688 confirmed deaths, and like other mostly BLUE locales, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let us look at Alabama.  Here are their numbers: 100.173 confirmed cases, 1,755 confirmed deaths, but like many other states, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us hope there is light at the end of the tunnel…
  54. 2020 Sunday B: People still await the VP pick of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  We hope to hear it soon but speculation abounds about two things: is it possible that whomever the former VP chooses to be his number two will be such a bottom-level loser such as Stacey Abrams or Gretchen Whitmer because no one of substance wishes to be on a doomed ticket or could what Chef Cheryl will write about in tomorrow’s blog post- Monday, August 10, 2020- could we see a NEW Obama-Biden ticket, one in which, Michelle Obama will be at the top and Dr. Jill Biden at the bottom?  Think about it.  Be sure to read tomorrow’s blog post.
  55. 2020 Sunday C: In Chicago, after false reports of the Chicago PD executing a young black man in the streets, mobs rush out and begin attacking upscale stores and neighborhoods along the ‘Magnificent Mile,’ beating, burning, rioting, and looting like a bunch of lunatics.  The following day, Mayor Lori Lightfoot would berate her citizens but what does it matter?  Nothing changes.  Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., a mass shooting occurs between black citizens leaving one dead and another twenty injured in varying degrees.  Mainstream media remained mum on both incidents, but Tucker Carlson at Fox News had the balls to both report it the following day and show video of the incidents.  Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon, rioting lunatics assault an elderly woman simply because she forgot to wear her mask in public.  Time to start whacking and stacking, folks.  Gun sales continue going UP!
  56. 2020 Sunday D: Speaking of guns, a tragedy occurs in Wilson, North Carolina, as a man named Darius Sessoms, 25-years-old, walked across their street and shot his five-year-old neighbor, Cannon Hinnant, in the head as he rode his bicycle in front of his home.  The child was white while the shooter was black.  Sadly, the news media has done its best to let this story go unreported.  Go figure.  Police are investigating but said the ‘shooting was not random.’  
  57. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 204,098,545 confirmed cases, +654,388, 4,315,487 confirmed deaths, +8,100 and 183,276,380 confirmed recoveries, +534,294.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,780,461 confirmed cases, UP 237,123 from yesterday’s reporting, 633,798 confirmed deaths, UP 337, [iii] and 29,922,841 confirmed recoveries, UP 63,779.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

  62. 2021 Monday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.390 per gallon, $3.022 in Florida, $4.083 in Hawaii, and $3.873 in Washington state. [xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.792.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Bosnia and Herzegovina: $5.078 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,618,816,777,129 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the Chi-Coms, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom with $440 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  63. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As you know, the AICPENDBLOG.COM tracks the movements of our ‘Johnny on the spot’ ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  By our count, today is her 139th day overseeing the U.S.-Mexico border and her 45th day since he sole visit to quietest part of the border, the El Paso Sector.  When will she begin doing the job to which senile Joe Biden appointed her to do? [xiv]   Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $507,711,936.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $241,603,657,728.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,476,244.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,476,244. [xv]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  The Western Roman Empire imploded because of its (1) inability to control its borders (2) endless wars (3) constant political strife and intrigue and (4) normalizing aberrant behavior such as homosexuality, pedophilia, and other forms of immoral perversion.  The collapse of the Western Roman Empire led to 1,000 years of Darkness, the Dark Ages.  We must save our country and the Western World by stopping the barbarians).
  64. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As things along the southern border continue getting out of hand along the border and across the country, the Biden regime is taking increased heat as to its lack of transparency as to where they are dumping the more than two million illegal aliens around the country.  Sadly, critics such as Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, are facing pushback from progressives that want NO separation with their crazy border policies and legitimate concern over the border invasion.
  65. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett calls on Lebanon to take ‘responsibility’ for the rocket fire coming out of the southern part of their country and into Israel.  We know Hezbollah is the one firing the missiles which is why the civilized world must exterminate the Untermensch.  In other news, eight hundred mixed Israeli and Palestinian families are calling for unification following the lapse of a law.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is preparing to slap Belarus with a new round of sanctions.   Finally, Israel’s diaspora President Nachman Shai says that ‘IF we lose the United States, things are going to get bad for the Jewish people.’  
  66. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Centers for Disease Control are urging Americans NOT to travel to Israel, France, or Thailand due to increasing COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, Australian troops are going door to door Downunder to make sure that EVERYONE is home and is not out violating the stay-at-home orders.  WTF?  Concerned citizens are warning the same BS could soon come to American shores. 
  67. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the Biden regime continues the drumbeat that ‘everyone must be vaccinated, everyone must be vaccinated (or face ostracization from society’), the Centers for Disease Control claims there’s ‘limited evidence that people recovered from the Xi Jinping Bat Flu require vaccinations or that antibodies protect them from ALL variants.’  Speaking of Xi Jinping, noted author Gordon Chang says that ‘Xi’s actions show the deliberate spread of COVID-19 across the world.’  Elsewhere, the dean of the Brown University of Public Health- Dr. Ashish Jha- says that ‘people must try to understand vaccine-hesitant Americans rather than vilifying them.’  Dr. Scott Gottlieb says ‘leave COVID-19 response up to local communities rather than issuing blanket rulings.’  Finally, Christian Whiton says that ‘IF the lab leak theory is proven true, the Chi-Coms owe the world $35 trillion in damages and lost lives.’  Amen.
  68. 2021 Monday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Democrats want a ‘permanent pandemic’ because they loathe giving up power and want to make people more dependent upon the federal government.   Next, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten is demanding vaccine mandates for ALL schools or else, she will not authorize the reopening of schools.  U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says the ‘nation stands at a fork in the road when it comes to vaccine and mask mandates and the reopening of schools.’  Meanwhile, the Pentagon is ordering that ALL active-duty personnel hold out his or her arms for a jab by September 15 or else.  (Note- could be loads of courts martial). 
  69. 2021 Monday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Former President Barack Hussein Obama continues taking heat for his sixtieth birthday party over the weekend due to NO precautions against COVID-19 (because leaked film shows it as such) while Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is blasting ONLY the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota while giving both Obama and the Lollapalooza Music Festival big passes.  Speaking of Obama’s birthday party, critics were slamming a New York Times reporter for seemingly giving the Obamas a pass because they are ‘sophisticated vaccinated people’ while the little people are nothing more than ignorant mopes.  Regarding the vaccines, pollster Frank Luntz says the ‘divide over vaccines is now a massive political chasm.’
  70. 2021 Monday M: Miscellaneous News I– Small towns across the United States are offering remote workers up to $20,000 to relocate to their towns.
  71. 2021 Monday N: Economic News– Job openings during July hit a record 10.1 million.  Sadly, way too many people are sitting at home, squirting out bastard children, smoking the crack pipe, breaking into their neighbors’ homes, or joining mobs when they should be either on the job or seeking one. 
  72. 2021 Monday O: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Freshly back from parental leave, Chicago Police Department Officer Ella French lost her life during a routine traffic stop after a punk she pulled over shot her in the face.  Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot blamed everyone and everything else instead of her failed policies for this tragic loss of life.  Calls continue growing for this pathetic POS governor, a person who could never find a man even if her life depended upon it to resign and to do so now.  Law enforcement turned their backs on this corrupt mayor.  Speaking of Chicago, in a 10-hour span over the weekend, criminals shot seventy-three people killing eleven of them.  William Kelly told Newsmax that ‘Frog-Face’s’ comments on the shooting of Officer French were despicable.  Officer French was the first Windy City officer killed since 1987.  Finally, Cleveland, Ohio, activists are pressing for the formation of the toughest police department oversight committee in the entire nation.  NOT good.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Human-Caused Disaster News– Report: apparently, the condominium that collapsed in Surfside, Florida was not built to code.  However, the age of the building, who were the original builders, the Trafficante Mob?  Good luck with getting restitution out of them.
  74. 2021 Monday Q: Natural Disasters News– The Dixie Fire is the largest wildfire in California history what with the destruction of more than 463,000 acres, the leveling of the historic mining town of Greenville, and at least eight people missing, five of them from Greenville.  This crap occurs every summer and fall in California and it is because Democrat control has done nothing about maintaining the forests, building new water infrastructure (in fact, they are tearing down dams), or working with PG&E to help them put transmission lines underground instead of forcing them to go ‘GREEN’ within the next few years.  Shame on them.
  75. 2021 Monday R: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Government has bestowed upon a Harvard professor $1.8 million to study UFOs.  Sounds like the money-go-round to us, folks.
  76. 2021 Monday S: Fake News I– We learned today that CNN’s Chris “Fraido” Cuomo has been barred by management from discussing the problems of his perverted brother, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov,” after already advising big brother on how to combat the calls for his resignation from office.
  77. 2021 Monday T: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is calling on the Biden regime to restart construction on the southern border wall.  We seriously doubt that enfeebled old Joe Biden will pay any heed to this sage advice.  Meanwhile, as the Dems continue the back-slapping glee over forcing through the ‘infrastructure bill’ to the floor for a full vote, President Trump slams the Trojan horse of a bill as being the beginning of the “Green New Deal,” a fascist takeover of the country by the Democrats hidden by the disguise of impending doom via Climate Change, Global Warming, and Extreme Weather.  Amen, Mr. President, amen.  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says of the Dems’ $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill that it is a ‘gateway to socialism.’
  78. 2021 Monday U: New York State News– Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat from upstate New York, is preparing to become governor if current office-holder Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov resigns over his growing scandals or either through impeachment or via arrest for the crimes of which he has been accused removes the cretin from office,   Here are the names of the eleven women accusing him of wrongdoing: (1) Lindsey Boylan (2) Charlotte Bennett (3) Ana Liss (4) Alyssa McGrath (5) Anna Ruch (6) Karen Hinton (7) Virginia Limmiatis (8) Jessica Bakeman (9) Sherry Vill (10) Valerie Bauman and (11) Brittany Commisso[xvi].  (Note- one thing that jumps out at us at the AICPENDBLOG.COM is that Governor “Killer” Cuomo must be a racist because all these women are WHITE.  Wow.  Regarding Cuomo, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘it’s over for Cuomo as he’s NO Bill Clinton.’
  79. 2021 Monday V: Texas State News– Crybaby sniveling fugitive Democrats from the Lone Star State are suing Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, for having ‘forced them to flee the state so they could not do their jobs.’  Talk about deflection.  Still, a Texas judge blocked the dragnet Austin planned to launch against these recalcitrant, wayward scumbags who fled more than a month ago via private jets with plenty of light beer with which to numb their fears to hide out in Washington, D.C.  One of them- a Madea-look-alike- had the nerve to sign “We shall overcome” upon first arriving in the District of Columbia.  The judge said that going after these brave Democrats would violate their civil rights. [xvii]
  80. 2021 Monday W: The Wrap-Up– Let me leave you with a closing thought or two…IF we do not fight back with everything in our wheelhouse against the crap the Democrats are trying to force down our throats, we will lose our God-given freedoms for a long, long time.  Most countries are able to break free eventually but if we are to use the rat-eating Chi-Coms, the Cubans, and the North Koreans as an example, if there is one thing these criminal regimes have learned is that the worse the oppression, the more difficult it is to break free.  Look at the Chi-Coms and the North Koreans’ concentration camps, horrible places where entire generations live out their lives.  Look, it is US, or it is THEM and as long as freedom flows through our veins, we must resist the Democrats with every ounce of fiber God has instilled in us.  We are strong, there are more of us than there are of them and if the RINO Republicans would stop act like kapos working for the Nazis, we might be able to stymie the scum.  We also must join forces to help our beleaguered border guards.  Otherwise, we could soon see Chi-Com troops patrolling our streets at the request of the Democratic-Socialists.  Thanks for joining us today, we will meet up again tomorrow.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  81. 2022 Tuesday: Friends, I knew I did something right when I switched parties several years ago (did so on November 08, 2018)- we were still writing at Google Blogger- because after what we saw yesterday at Mar-a-Lago in conservative Florida, there is NO way in hell I could remain a Democrat, even if my lovely wife swore to cut me off if I left.  Look, what more excuse does one need to add new firearms to the DARK gun cabinet than seeing the Joestapo raid Mar-a-Lago?  Why would I not want to scoop up some new shotguns and handguns after learning the IRS is going to add another 87,000 agents to their employment rolls?  I had other things I wanted to say today but friends, the raid on Mar-a-Lago demonstrates that our country is embarking down a new and desolate path into authoritarianism.  I hope to God we reclaim our country over the course of the subsequent two election cycles as if we don’t, well, it’s going to be time to move down to the D.R. and enjoy retirement.  Let us know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht- America’s favorite German chef.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Everyone knows George and Ira Gershwin were musical geniuses, people that gave the world some of the greatest music ever heard.  Thus, we have another genius- Brian Wilson- who dove in headfirst for his next studio album and thus we have it: “Brian Wilson reimagines Gershwin,” released on August 17, 2010.  Whether you love George and Ira or you don’t, this is an important album that everyone should add to their growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved CDs because it is one for the ages.  Once again, Wilson is joined by some of the best musicians available which is why we promote this one as loudly as we do.  Seek it out and add it to your collection you will be glad you did.

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-SIXTY-FIVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME

19. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19, 2022, UPDATE A:

Robert E. Lee’s Birthday in Florida; Confederate Heroes Day in Texas; Happy Birthday, Chef Vicky!

It appears President Joseph R. Biden’s agenda is dead, dead, buried, and gone.  Momentous changes coming in November…

  1.  2022 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 338,949,576 confirmed cases, +4,020,742, 5,582,430 confirmed deaths, +9,718 and 272,626,440 confirmed recoveries, +1,993,745.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 430,876 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 raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 68,504 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 364 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  4. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 2,035,432 confirmed cases, 8,362 confirmed deaths, and 1,530,716 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Angola, 120th country on the list: 94,779 cases of the virus, 1,887 confirmed death and 85,603 confirmed recoveries.[iv]

  6. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.649 per gallon, $3.217 in Florida, $4.333 in Hawaii, and $3.958 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: New Mexico- $3.255.  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 101st HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Fiji: $4.884 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,817,463,719,659 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 Luxembourg the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258,000,000,000 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. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Our dear Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border crisis now for 295 days and it’s been 208 days since she arrived there to do the job.  Even I have problems defending this.  Here are the statistics for the ongoing crisis as computed by the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  First, here is the cost for this day alone of caring for the undocumented migrants: $1,822,202,619.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the undocumented for the past 364 days: $405,995,076,012.  Next, here is the number of undocumented who have attempted to cross the border this year or who have successfully negotiated it, and have escaped into the interior: 187,391.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of noncitizens in the U.S. for the past 364 days: 42,344,779.  If this miniscule number is indeed true, it still is an unacceptable number because of the cost on the dwindling resource our country possesses.  We have noncitizens here, too.  We have people from across Asia, from New Zealand and Australia, from Europe, Canada, even the Caribbean.  They drive up rents, lower wages, drive drunk on our not-so-great roads, commit robberies, rapes, and other crimes.  President Biden, please defend our borders.  Thank you.
  8. 2022 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Amid the ongoing crisis in Lebanon, the U.S. Treasury slaps new sanctions on Hezbollah.  Next- and this is good news- Israel announces that it has had a ‘breakthrough’ on its antiballistic missile tests.  When Iran’s missiles are incoming, we hope they can take them all down.  (Note- we also hope they have developed missiles of their own that can carry the fight to Tehran and pulverize that horrible city).  In other foreign and overseas news, fury is growing among the civilized peoples of the world over the Chinese communists slaughtering small animals in Hong Kong, all because of claims they are COVID-19-positive.  This sounds as though it’s a punitive measure against the freedom-loving peoples of Hong Kong.
  9. 2022 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson has made an astounding about-face since he is facing being booted as the PM over his partying while the rest of the nation was under harsh lockdown and restrictions.  Thus- coincidentally, “BoJo” says that he ‘believes COVID-19 has peaked’ and that the country NO longer requires ‘COVID-19 passports, mask mandates, or work restrictions.’  The country is now FREE!  However, across the English Channel, French President Emanuel Macron is demanding that the European Union add ‘abortion rights’ to the EU’s charter.   Finally, the parents of Otto Warmbier- murdered by the North Koreans- have received $240,000 seized from the North Koreans.  Good for them.  This in no way can right the loss but it will help to set things right.
  10. 2022 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The World Health Organization revealed today that there’s ‘no evidence showing children or adults require a booster shot to combat the COVID-19 virus.’  Well.  If you want to come to Hawaii, Governor David Ige now says visitors need THREE SHOTS or no entry.
  11. 2022 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– The Utah state Senate has voted overwhelmingly to end all statewide mask mandates.  Good for you.  However, President Joseph R. Biden is handing out 400 ‘free’ N95 masks to Americans who want them.  My colleagues believe this is far from being altruistic; no, they believe that members of my party receive kickbacks for doing such beneficial things.  They could be right.  When it comes to government, nothing is ever ‘free.’  We pay for it.
  12. 2022 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $53.54 (2) AstraZeneca: $59.48 (3) Merck & Company: $81.29 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $166.58 (5) Novavax: $92.33 (6) BioNTech: $161.66 (7) Moderna: $174.07.

  17. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden News I– President Joseph R. Biden Jr., continues with what some call ‘fearmongering,’ by perpetually suggesting that Vladimir Putin is going to invade Ukraine.  It’s as if he is willing the United States and the NATO allies into war with Russia.  Some believe it’s a case of ‘wag the dog,’ that since his poll numbers are abysmally low, he is seeking something to divert attention away from his domestic troubles.  Next, Joe Biden has named two big donors to become ambassadors to the United Kingdom and Denmark.  I thought we weren’t going to do these things anymore.
  18. 2022 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Politico Morning Consult poll says that a majority of Americans do not believe that Joe Biden is capable of leading the country.  They are questioning their mental fitness.
  19. 2022 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden White House is soft-launching a COVID-19 website with which to disseminate information regarding vaccines, mask and test distributions, and other information pertinent to the American people.  Next, the administration is telling the chip industry to brace for possible Russian export curbs.  Regarding talk of still more COVID-19 relief, former South Carolina governor, and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley slams Democrats over this never-ending debacle.
  20. 2022 Wednesday S: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Further details emerge on the Oath Keepers ‘weapons stockpile’ last year on January 06, 2021.  Next, the 1-06-2021 select committee announced today that they will be interviewing mystery man, Ray Epps, on Friday.  Remember- this man was seen all day January 05, 2021, and the morning of the following day whipping up a frenzy among Trump voters to storm the Capitol.  (Note- in a sidebar, Alec Baldwin- irascible actor- found himself slammed with a lawsuit after he accused some woman of having participated in the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill riots.  He should keep his mouth shut.  He’s not on anyone’s list of popularity right now seeing as how he shot two people- murdered one of them- and refuses to take any responsibility for it.  Shame on him.  In other news, the U.S. Department of Justice is going to provide the select committee with four pages of Donald Trump’s documents from last year concerning the riots.  Finally, new analysis shows that Ashli Babbitt- murdered by Capitol Hill Police Lt. Michael Byrd on January 06, 2021, was trying to steer protesters away from the door when Officer Byrd shot and killed her.  This is not good.
  21. 2022 Wednesday T: Political News I– As his fellow Democrats continue blasting Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, and Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, Senator Joe Manchin says- regarding primary challengers- to bring them on, that it’s a way of life for him.  Regarding Senator Sinema, Emily’s List says it will cut her off over her stance on the filibuster rule.  She won’t change it.  In other Joe Manchin-related news, sports figures are pressuring him to support ending the filibuster so the party can get the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act pushed through.   Newbie Senator Mark Kelly, D-AZ, says he will ‘conditionally support changing the filibuster rule.’
  22. 2022 Wednesday U: Political News II– Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says ‘it’s well past time for “America’s Doctor” Tony Fauci to go.[xi]  In other GOP news, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that the Republicans want President Donald J. Trump back in the White House ASAP.   Next, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says that Senate Majority Leader Charles “Chuck” Schumer, D-NY, says that ‘Leader Schumer is terrified- his words- of facing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY 14th congressional district, in a primary challenge this fall.  (Leader Schumer is having other problems what with bills reining in BIG TECH on the horizon and his ties to BIG TECH).
  23. 2022 Wednesday V: Political News III– House Democrats are assuring President Joseph R. Biden that they are willing to pass portions of his Build Back Better bill.  In other news, things are not looking up for Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, GOP: in a recent straw poll, out of five or six candidates, he received just ONE vote.  Not good.  In other news, Congressman Lance Gooden, R-TX 5th congressional district, says that the resettlement loan program is drawing more undocumented migrants into the United States.
  24. 2022 Wednesday W: Political News IV– This evening word came that Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin voted with the GOP thus ending any hope of pushing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act.  President Joe Biden’s agenda is now DEAD.  Completely.  In other news, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Republican- possible U.S. Senate candidate against first-termer Mark Kelly, Democrat, says that the Copper State ‘will not permit President Biden to intimidate his state’ over the ongoing investigation into the 2020 Elections.  Finally, Texas Attorney General Kenneth Paxton says the Lone Star State’s synagogue standoff demonstrates WHY NO ONE trusts the FBI anymore.  Yeah, kind of curious as to WHY the FBI doesn’t protect our nation from true terrorists?
  25. 2022 Wednesday X: Political News V– MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough says that President Joe Biden’s ‘leftist governing has failed.’  (Note- he did promise to be a uniter and not a divider and things are not going well).  Speaking of the President, he did concede during today’s lengthy press conference that the country is indeed weary of COVID-19 but that the country is in a better place.’  Mr. President, the country is in a WORSE place- you need to step it up or you will go down.  In other political news, Congressman Tim Walberg, R-MI 7th congressional district, says that parents are still the ‘educators’ and that ‘teachers teach.’  Amen.
  26. 2022 Wednesday Y: U.S. Supreme Court News I– Despite what news reports suggest, the U.S. Supreme Court says there is no mask feud between fully vaccinated- and boosted- Associate Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Neil Gorsuch.  I do not believe there ever was and if true, then it seems mighty silly.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of a Bremerton, Washington, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy for refusing to halt prayers at the 50-yard line with his players AFTER the game was over.  Friends, we must return religion to the schools if we are to save the nation.  Finally, the Supreme Court has refused Donald Trump’s bid to shield documents from the 01-06-2021 select committee.
  27. 2022 Wednesday Z: Lawsuit and Legal News– The University of Michigan has arrived at a $490 million settlement to settle sexual assault claims that have been lodged against this institution of higher learning.  In other legal news, Britney Spears is still having trouble with her corrupt family.  The recently-liberated girl had to send a ‘cease and desist’ letter to her sister.  Britney says she ‘won’t be bullied.’  In other news, a woman is suing Southwest Airlines after she was ejected from a flight.  Finally, the Trump Org. is responding powerfully to New York State Attorney General Letitia James, Democrat, who is running a malicious prosecution against the former president.
  28. 2022 Wednesday AA: Crime and Punishment News– We watch the news in Hawaii, too, and we have seen the appalling train robberies occurring in Los Angeles, California.  This is shocking and this must end.  I would suggest to leaders in my party that to diminish the problem of crime across the country is going to transform lots of Democrats into reluctant Republicans, reluctant Republicans who will vote for the GOP.  It helps not that U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg says ZIP about these crimes.  He needs to step up and do something to stop this.  NOW.  In other crime news, freshman New York City Mayor Eric Adams says that he ‘does not feel safe on the city’s subways.’   Bet you won’t be taking them to work anymore- and unlike your fellow citizens- you have security protecting you.  Finally, the police arrested Cleveland Browns’ player Malik McDowell for indecent exposure and for assaulting a police officer during his arrest.  Note to Malik- keep your thing in your pants.
  29. 2022 Wednesday BB: New York State News– As New York State descends into madness, Andrew Giuliani, GOP, says that as attorney general, he would tackle crime on Day No. 1.  In other Empire State news, Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, has raised $8.4 million in his bid to become the state’s next governor.
  30. 2022 Wednesday CC: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3631 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 25, 27, 46, 47, and Mega 24.  Out of 80,396 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $4,853 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #939 with a jackpot of $62 million up for grabs: 11, 15, 43, 55, 61, and Power 10.  Out of 37,236 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $505,966.

FOLKS, AS MUCH AS IT CAUSES ME SHAME TO BEG, SOMEONE HAS TO HELP JOE OTHERWISE, OUR PARTY IS GOING DOWN THE CRAPPER IN NOVEMBER…

Sandy “The Fly” Cortez sure has an inflated ego- the bug-eyed skank thinks Republicans want to sleep with her…WTF?

b. Every professional foodservice operator has had an employee like Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC. She’s the one who pours doubles for singles, she’s the one who gives call for well drinks, she’s the one who fails to keep accurate tabs on guys she wants to bone, and she’s the one who gives hummers out by the dumpster at the end of the night in the hope of making larger tips. She thinks Republicans want to sleep with her…is she flipping INSANE?

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 313

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-FORTY-NINE OF THE BIDEN REGIME

003. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JANUARY 03, 2022, UPDATE A:

Sandy “The Fly” Cortez sure has an inflated ego- the bug-eyed skank thinks Republicans want to sleep with her…WTF?

  1. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 292,963,853 confirmed cases, +2,323,830, 5,465,903 confirmed deaths, +5,454 and 255,344,343 confirmed recoveries, +798,419. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 57,075,568 confirmed cases, UP 933,333 from yesterday’s reporting, 848,826 confirmed deaths, UP +1,418,[i] and 41,708,956 confirmed recoveries, UP 165,896. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 442,977 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 raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 39,655 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 347 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.       
  3. 2022 Monday 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: 5,487,385 confirmed cases, 76,776 confirmed deaths, and 5,410,609 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 4,213,301 confirmed cases, 62,480 confirmed deaths, and 3,633,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 121,864 confirmed cases, 1,094 confirmed deaths, and 120,770 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 884,168 confirmed cases, 9,912 confirmed deaths, and 338,262 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., United States Virgin Islands: they have 10,290 confirmed cases, 89 confirmed deaths, and 8,090 confirmed recoveries.[iii]

The price of COCOA is $2,499.00 per USD/T, -21.00 (-0.83%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,112.00 USD 1,000 board feet -35.90 (-3.13%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000022.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.48.    In North Korean Won, one greenback equals 899.96 and in Kuwaiti Dinar, a buck equal 0.30 and in Angolan Kwanza, one dollar equals 560.20 of theirs.[vii]        
  6. 2022 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.660 per gallon, $3.211 in Florida, $4.325 in Hawaii, and $3.881 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Kansas- $2.964.  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 87th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- communist Nicaragua: $4.488 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,613,408,048,206 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 Thailand the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75,000,000,000 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. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The good ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the collapsing southern border now for 281 days and worse, it’s been 194 days since she showed up to do some work, i.e., a photo op.  (Note- perhaps President Donald J. Trump should schedule another visit to the border so public opinion will FORCE our ‘esteemed border czar’ to do her job).  The U.S. is expanding the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy to San Diego, a wealthy, upscale LIBERAL neighborhood.  According to Chef Pedro, he and his fellow citizens do not wish to be deluged with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens.  In other shocking news, 15 U.S. Border Patrol agents died in the line of duty in 2021, most of them due to COVID-19 thanks to Joe Biden relinquishing control of the border.
  8. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II- Here are OUR estimates for the illegal alien crisis overwhelming our borders since OAN has gone somewhat dark in sharing the numbers with the nation.  First, here is the cost for this day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal alien refuse to have swarmed across our borders and to have put themselves into our care: $641,727,086.00.  Second, here is the estimated cost of caring for the Third World invaders for 368 days now: $401,139,770,158.  So unnecessary.  Third, is the estimate of illegals who have crossed into the U.S. in the first three days of the year: 35,262.  Combined with all of last year’s illegal alien entries into the U.S., this is the number we estimate- on the low end- of illegal aliens within the country: 42,134,962.  Note, it is important to understand that this blog- no matter its inception (back in 2009-2010 with Choseit.com, then with Google Blogger from 2010-2020 until they banned us)- we estimated back then, the numbers of illegal aliens at 35-to-75 million whereas now, we believe the numbers to be closer to 75-to-100 million.
  9. 2022 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador sought a pardon for jailed journalist and freedom fighter, Julian Assange, and has offered the brave online newsman and publisher asylum if he can somehow get to their country.  Next, after South Korea reported a ‘man-bites-dog’ story yesterday in which, a defector from SOUTH KOREA slipped through the DMZ into North Korea, Seoul announced that this unnamed person who scurried north actually was a defector from the North who decided to return home.  This poor bastard most likely was shot- unless he was an intelligence agent.
  10. 2022 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II- Iran is vowing REVENGE for the drone strike on Quds Force commander General Qassim Soleimani if the Biden regime does not put President Donald J. Trump and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on trial for the terrorist leader’s death one year ago today.  To Iran, we say, “F**K YOU.”  President Donald J. Trump should have nuked your disagreeable asses when he was in the White House.  When he returns…perhaps he will?  In neighboring Iraq, Shiites stirred up by their Iranian paymasters are demonstrating in the streets, demanding justice for their beloved dead, terrorist leader.  Finally, Lithuania allowed Taiwan to open a diplomatic mission in their country which is the first step to recognizing FREE CHINA as an independent nation (if not the rightful ruler of the Mainland).
  11. 2022 Monday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- As the country continues unraveling on race thanks to Chi-Com, Russian, and Iranian meddling, the Empire State is now going to provide treatment for the Chi-Vi to its citizens based upon their RACE.  How sad is that?  Will kids and adults of mixed race be given care based on their minority half while the white half is told to go to the back of the line?  This is insane.  Not only is this unethical, it’s also immoral, and even more problematic, it’s going to lead to rapid growth in concierge medical services so those being denied medical treatment will be able to get it under the table thus denying others the same opportunity).
  12. 2022 Monday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II- As cases of Omicron variant of the Chi-Vi continue skyrocketing, Princeton University has banned its students from leaving the county in which the university is located.  Wow.  Next, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, blasted Joe Biden and Xavier Becerra, secretary of Health & Human Services, for denying the Sunshine State the monoclonal antibodies that treat Xi Jinping’s never-ending pandemic.  The feds swooped in, scooped up the entire supply, and since the Bidenistas detest Governor DeSantis and the citizens of the Sunshine State are now in a position to deny the freedom-loving citizens of the state the life-saving treatment.  Come on, man, what the hell is wrong with you, Joe Biden?
  13. 2022 Monday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $56.65 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.31 (3) Merck & Company: $76.87 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $171.54 (5) Novavax: $142.90 (6) BioNTech: $231.85 (7) Moderna: $235.05.
  14. 2022 Monday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $86.97 (2) General Dynamics: $207.46 (3) Boeing: $207.86 (4) Lockheed Martin: $354.36 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $385.53.
  15. 2022 Monday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $32.80 (2) DuPont: $80.66 (3) Honeywell: $206.80 (4) 3M: $177.72 (5) Teijen: $1,428.00.
  16. 2022 Monday O: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.68 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $21.94 (3) Beyond Meat: $64.87.

  18. 2022 Monday Q: President Donald J. Trump News-  A new poll has Democrats and RINOs alike chomping at the bit: 54-percent of Republicans back another run by the true and rightful president in 2024 with his nearest competitors coming in at least 30-40 points below him including “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, Vice President Mike Pence, former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, and even Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX.   Next, President Trump gave Kansas state Attorney General Derek Schmidt his blessing to become the next governor of the Sunflower State.  Moving on, President Trump is also blessing foreign leaders with his endorsement such as Hungarian leader Viktor Orbán, someone the Biden regime despises because he won’t allow his country to be overwhelmed with Muslim ‘refugees.’
  19. 2022 Monday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- As COVID-19 cases continue to surge and the Biden regime has no clue as what to do, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, and Congressman Chuck Fleishmann, R-TN 3rd congressional district, blasted slobbering Joe Biden’s COVID-19 policies by saying they’ve made things worse, not improved the situation.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, lit the Biden regime up on its lack of border policies noting the massive spike in seizures of Chi-Com-manufactured fentanyl.  Next, as inflation continues draining the pockets of American taxpayers, Joe Biden mumbled the ‘meatpackers are to blame for rising meat prices.’  Sure, Joe, sure.  You have no clue as to what you are talking about, dude.
  20. 2022 Monday S: Joe Biden Regime News I- U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says he is ‘committed’ to kids returning to school and learning in person.  We shall see.   Next, the U.S. Department of Defense and the FBI are investigating a possible data breach at a Broward County, Florida, health system.
  21. 2022 Monday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- We learned today as soon-to-be-ex-Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-large congressional district, continues slandering President Donald J. Trump and his supporters, that besides angry Ms. Cheney, doddering old Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris are going to speak at the one-year anniversary of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s FALSE FLAG OPERATION festival this Thursday.  That should be fun, maybe Sandy “The Fly” Cortez can retell the story of how she hid in terror underneath her desk as ‘Trump supporters’ searched for her (she was in a different building away from the false flag op).
  22. 2022 Monday U: Political News I- A perplexed U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has once again fined Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, for not buckling under and wearing a mask on the floor of the U.S. House of representatives.  Speaking of masks, “Mumbles” Pelosi is demanding better quality masks to prevent the spread of the ‘VID on the floor.  Next, we learned today that Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, is willing to return to the negotiating table to help the Biden regime takeover elections at all levels across the entire United States.  He also is willing to negotiate on Joe Biden’s $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Bulls**t bill.  Say it ain’t so, Joe.
  23. 2022 Monday V: Political News II- The Heritage Foundation says, “Let’s replace CRT- Critical (Critical) Race Theory in America’s schools with Classical Education” that will teach the good, the bad, and the ugly of American history to new generations of students but will teach them the TRUTH of what a great country we have.   Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, is blasting Sandy “The Fly” Cortez over her dissing of “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis who was away from the public spotlight due to his wife’s ongoing treatments for breast cancer.  Still, Senator Scott said that ‘AOC will probably relocate to the Sunshine State.’  That’s funny (about AOC).
  24. 2022 Monday W: Political News III- In other political news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that he is leaving YouTube, labeling them as the ‘worst censor ever.’  Speaking of BIG TECH thuggery, Joe Rogan has abandoned Twitter over the permanent lifetime ban of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, and is urging his 14 million or so Twitter followers to follow him to Gettr.   Next, today marks the official retirement of Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, as he leaves to take charge of President Donald J. Trump’s new media empire.   Finally, Congressman Bobby “Black Panther” Rush, CPUSA-IL 1st congressional district, a 15-term congressman announced he is going to retire.  He becomes the 24th Democrat to announce retirement ahead of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.
  25. 2022 Monday X: U.S. Senate News I- U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, says he plans to force a vote on toppling the filibuster so the Senate can vote on January 17, 2022, on Joe Biden’s voting rights bill (which is a load of crap.  NO one is being denied the right to vote in this country other than those unqualified to vote).
  26. 2022 Monday Y: U.S. Supreme Court News I- Vice President Michael R. Pence and his group, Advancing American Freedom, have filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the unconstitutional vaccine mandates so beloved by the authoritarians behind the Biden regime.
  27. 2022 Monday Z: Weather News I- Heavy snow is blanketing the Atlantic seaboard with heavy snowfall in Washington, D.C., closing federal offices and blotting out the White House.  Joe Biden returned from yet another ‘vacation’ home to Delaware so they could recharge his brain in a blinding snowstorm.  At least when he left Air Force One, he did not topple down the stairs and onto his face.  Thank God, we can handle no more embarrassment from this guy.
  28. 2022 Monday AA: New York State News- Poor disgraced, former Empire State Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, apparently could have fought to have remained in office rather than submitting to the WOKE MOB and resigning.  We learned today that former Governor “Killer” Cuomo will not be charged for the untold thousands of nursing home deaths he caused by seeding COVID-19 patients back into said nursing homes.  We believe he won’t face charges is because this is what left-wing governments seek, to get rid of what the Nazis called ‘useless eaters,’ people who for whatever reason use society’s resources- like seniors, the disabled, the homeless, and the mentally ill- and give nothing back in return.   For the hell of it, we hope Cuomo runs for the governorship  in November.  Now that would teach these lowlife losers a lesson they won’t soon forget.  In other Empire State news, Attorney General Leticia James announces subpoenas for Donald J. Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump as they probe the Trump Organization.  Meanwhile, Mayor Eric Adams, the Big Apple’s new mayor, says that ‘schools will remain open.’  Okay.
  29. 2022 Monday BB: Sports News I- NASCAR is walking back the “Let’s Go Brandon” endorsement of racecar driver, Brandon Brown, because it’s ‘offensive’ to an illegitimate president.  Sad. “LET’S GO BRANDON!”  Next, tonight’s Monday Night Football game features the visiting Cleveland Browns (7-8-0) at the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-7-1).  This is said to be the final home game for Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger.  We wish it could be otherwise, but something is wrong in the Steel City as the offensive line seems incapable of protecting the veteran quarterback and unable to give him time to get the pig skin where it needs to go.  Still, they managed to defend Big Ben tonight and the Steelers won the game by a final score of 26-14, putting the Steelers to 8-7-1 and keeping their playoff hopes alive and putting the Browns to 7-9-0 and dashing their hopes.
  30. 2022 Monday CC: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #932 with a jackpot of $540 million up for grabs: 02, 13, 32, 33, 48, and Power 22.  Out of 229,886 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,652 apiece.
  31. 2022 Monday DD: Moron News I- Following little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez’s recent visit to a drag queen festival in the Sunshine State (we always thought she was a ‘chick with a dick’) and her being caught on camera drinking and dining without a mask, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, slammed the little skank by saying she is a ‘more attractive, Latina version of Senator Bernie Sanders,’ CPUSA-VT.  “The Fly” also said that Republicans are ‘taking their sexual frustrations out on her.’  (Note- as a professional chef, myself, employers such as me detest having employees such as Sandy Cortez working for them.  They pour doubles when they should pour singles, they give call drinks in place of well, and they give hummers out by the dumpster to their favorite customers so they can get higher tips at the expense of the foodservice/bar establishment.   NO one wants to touch her, she is probably one big walking, festering STD.  Ah, well, we sure the heck hope the GOP concentrates on taking the squad out in November- Chef Brian Carrick).
  32. 2022 Monday EE: Wokeism-Woke-Wokies- Parents in upstate New York have gone ballistic over schools in the area deciding NOT to include the teaching of popular Christmas song, “Jingle Bells,” based on the misguided notion that it might not be inclusive for all students.  Look, this is a JUDEO-CHRISTIAN COUNTRY, we don’t give a flying f**k about the Muslims, the satanists, or anyone else claiming to be offended by Christmas traditions.  Vote your school boards out and replace your teachers with ‘America first educators.’
  33. 2022 Monday FF: Stick around to find out what the Democrats and their masters in Beijing are up to today- you know you will want to discover the truth along with us so join us throughout the day…
