Gen. Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?

  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

The next album by the Beach Boys- “Shut Down Volume 2” was the biggest to date as it contained so many wonderful tunes.  The lineup featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals).  The tunes on this album are some of the band’s fan favorites to this date- “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Don’t Worry Baby” (a tune Who drummer Keith Moon would cover on his sole solo album), “The Warmth of the Sun,” “This Car of Mine,” “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” “Shut Down Part II,” and a cover of “Louie, Louie.”  We hope you will investigate this album to your ears’ content as it is one every fan of the times and of the band should own.  You will be so glad you did.

Currently, Joe is shy 185,968 deaths.

  70. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.050 per gallon, $2.834 in Florida, $3.796 in Hawaii, and $3.488 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New Mexico: $2.879.  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- Malaysian: $1.887 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,247,962,760,073 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is visiting the Ukraine today.[xviii]   Next, Iran confirms the authenticity of tape where Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry[xix] commits various Logan Act violations by sharing with the Iranians at least, we repeat- at least– 200 separate incidences of the Mossad carrying out surreptitious activities against Iranian interests in the hellhole of Syria.  In other news related to overseas activities, former Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller- part of the Trump administration- is urging the Biden administration NOT to let its guard down regarding the use of directed-energy weapons on U.S. personnel worldwide.  He calls it ‘an act of war’ and suggests that even if it’s ‘nonlethal,’ we owe it to our people to investigate so as to be better protected in the future.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Covid-19 Updates And Additional Information– First, early information is suggesting that the COVID-19-caused pandemic shutdowns of cities may be in the preliminary stages of reversal.  Next, Pfizer seeks full clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for the use of its Chi-Vi vaccine for everyone.  Elsewhere, U.S. states are not ordering their full allotments of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu over a lessening demand for the questionable inoculations.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Joe Biden Regime News I–   We learn today that thanks to Joe Biden being president (well, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘president’), the death tax is going to rise to 40-61-percent meaning their family’s tragedy will also see financial rape of the grieving survivors.  Wow.  Thank you, President Obama, uh, we mean, “El Presidente Joe Biden.”   Meanwhile, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, DS, says the regime is moving ahead with reuniting illegal alien families torn asunder by the Trump administration.   Elsewhere, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley is dropping his opposition to changes in sexual assault policies.  Wow.  Sell-out.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he is considering a slick budgetary maneuver whereby he can legalize tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of our country.  Gee whiz, thank you, Chuckie, thank you.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– the House GOP is calling for an oversight hearing on the Capitol Hill Police Department and their actions on FALSE FLAG OPERATION DAY on January 06, 2021.  Next, GOP lawmakers seek a probe of Amazon’s Jedi contract.   Elsewhere, the GOP is adding an additional 10 Democrat-held congressional seats deemed to be vulnerable in 2022.  (Note- get rid of YOUR RINO problem, too, Republicans).  Moving on, UNC Chapel Hill has bestowed a professorship on the clown that created the 1619 ‘Project,’ (a bullshit propaganda project with which to wail and cry and to point fingers at the evil whiteys)[xx].  In other news, former Governor Charlie Crist, RINO-FL-turned Democrat Congressman, 13th congressional district, is making another run for the gubernatorial mansion.  Loser.  Finally, Eric Trump says there is NO way that fuddled old Joe Biden can hold a candle to his father’s energy on the job.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– We learned today that Newsmax settled a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada, that they apologized and agreed to stop questioning the 2020 Presidential Election’s veracity.  One America News, however, won’t back down for which, we congratulate them.  However, if Canada WON’T use Dominion Voting Systems nor Smartmatic Software in their own elections, what does that say about their trustworthiness and honesty?  Not very much.  Speaking of the untrustworthy, it now appears that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out as GOP Conference Chair by the end of the month.  This woman and the other corrupt Republicans that leapt onto the President Donald J. Trump impeachment vote as showing their virtue ALL must lose their seats.  Period.  She needs to join the Democrats of which she truly is one…finally, the Justice Department has been ordered to release the memo cited by then-U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr as to why there was no charge of obstruction launched against President Donald J. Trump when feeble old Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III concluded his ginned-up, bogus investigation into the 45th president.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The attorney for convicted murderer and former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has filed for a new trial now that we learn the jurors were going to convict him on ALL counts no matter what which is not justice but a kangaroo court.  The judge in the case pointed out that thanks to people like that dingbat from California, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, going there and rabble rousing the lynch mob outside the courthouse every day, that her actions put the entire outcome of the trial in jeopardy.  We expect to see Chauvin win a new trial, be acquitted, and get his old job back.  Boo-yeah!
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– stick around for the results on tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1656 with a pot of $345 million available to some lucky winner…here are the results: 04, 27, 32, 57, 63, and Mega 22.  Out of 136,836 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $947,704.
  79. 2022 Wednesday: Everyone Wang Chung tonight…

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Troggs on Monday, 06-January-2020 through Tuesday, 04-February-2020.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection as they are astounding.

[iii] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[xviii] This schmo also warned the Chi-Coms it would be a mistake to attack Taiwan.  What is the U.S. going to do to stop it, Secretary Blinken?  Launch a nuclear barrage on the Chi-Coms?  I doubt it.  (Note- living in Israel allows me to view the world differently and I think there is no way the U.S.- without President Donald J. Trump in the White House– can do to stop such an attack.  I fear it would be over before it began- Mo).

[xix] Speaking of ‘climate,’ a NYU physicist says that ‘humans have NOT broken the climate.’

[xx] Nikole Hannah-Jones cannot handle any criticism of her bogus ‘history.’  Why is it we cannot continue the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?  Why do we have to continue finding ways of tearing the country apart?  Here is why: for some, it’s profitable.  Look at ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, look at ‘Reverend’ Jesse Jackson, look at that POS lawyer Benjamin Crump, these scalawags and scoundrels reap lots of wealth tearing the fabric of the nation asunder.  Going to be time to move to Russia or Chi-Com land…at least they defend their countries.

114. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2022

27. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews. The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 209

114. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2022:

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Peter Vivian Daniel; U.S. Secretary of Defense Louis A. Johnson; Badfinger featuring Pete Ham, Blondie featuring Nigel Harrison, Creedence Clearwater Revival featuring Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, “Diamond Dogs” by David Bowie, and the Electric Prunes featuring Preston Ritter:

  13. 1877 Tuesday: In defense of Romania, Russia declares war on the Ottoman Empire.  Meanwhile, the last Federal occupation troops withdraw from the South, departing through New Orleans, Louisiana, for home.  This would open the door to horrendous actions by Southern Democrats and their allies, the Ku Klux Klan.  Every Black American needs to recall who the REAL villains in their mistreatment were and have been: the two groups above are responsible for their persecution and for Jim Crow/Segregation laws.
  14. 1884 Thursday: In Atlanta, Georgia, the Black National Physicians Organization organizes.

  19. 1915 Saturday: What’s regarded as the start of the Armenian Genocide began as the Ottoman Empire rounded up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople.  Although persecutions against Christians had been ongoing since Turkey joined the Central Powers- German Empire, Austro-Hungary, and Bulgaria- they were going to step up the pressure, fearful that they would have enemies in their rear areas.  Elsewhere, on the Western Front, the Second Battle of Ypres continues as Germans continue making gains.  On the Eastern Front, the Austro-Hungarians are making headway in the western Ukraine against the Russian bear.
  20. 1916 Monday: Some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Uprising by seizing several key sites in Dublin; however, the British crushed it almost a week later.   The Irish felt that with the British occupiers suffering heavy losses in World War I, this might be a grand opportunity to drive them out of the Emerald Isle.
  21. 1917 Tuesday: Fighting continues to rage in the French countryside as British, French, and German forces throw all they have at one another.  Elsewhere, the Ukraine demands independence from Czarist Russia.
  22. 1918 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the Somme as the Germans continue their all-out offensive to drive the Allies out of the war.  Starvation and lack of medicine is plaguing both sides in this titanic struggle, one that has another 4-5 months to go.   Meanwhile, the British and Turks announce a decision for a prisoner exchange.
  23. 1937 Saturday: In Lima, Ohio, future saxophonist with Blood, Sweat & Tears in 1972- Joe Henderson is born.
  24. 1940 Wednesday: German forces in Norway continue solidifying their positions as reinforcements arrive with which to counter the Brits who are trying to keep Norway free and independent.  However, preparations for the invasion of France continue as Germans continue building their troop strength up, much of it in the heavily wooded Ardennes Forest.
  25. 1941 Thursday: Resistance in Greece is dying as the Germans and their allied Axis troops continue pushing Greek and British defenders back to the southern portion of the country.  In Yugoslavia, resistance is also sputtering to an end.  Elsewhere, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt orders military leaders to keep track of all German Kriegsmarine movements so the information can be forwarded to the British government, on the sly of course, as the U.S. is not yet in the war.
  26. 1942 Friday: The Luftwaffe steps up its attacks against British heritage sites as heavy bombers target sites up and down the eastern coast of Great Britain.  The British are determined to withstand the assault while the Germans are doing their best to bomb them into submission.
  27. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews.  The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.  In response, the Germans begin setting buildings on fire.  However, the defenders in these buildings either fight to the death or retreat through pre-cut holes in walls or into the sewers to fight another day.
  28. 1944 Monday: The first B-29 arrived in Nationalist China, flying ‘over the hump’ of the Himalayas.  Elsewhere, now that Italy is on the Allied side, their warplanes are flying sorties against their former German allies in the Aegean Sea attacking garrisons holding islands and ports.   The Germans respond with violence against Italian prisoners.
  29. 1945 Tuesday: Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, future drummer of both Creedence Clearwater Revival[i] and Creedence Clearwater Revisited, was born in Palo Alto, California, on this date in history.  Meanwhile in World War II, the Soviets continue their pincer movement around Berlin as one army begins fighting into the suburbs from the South while from the east, another is pummeling its way into the city from that direction.  Germans are still able to enter and exit the city at this time as the Soviets have not yet sealed the city off on all sides.  Hitler has a chance to fly out but won’t take it- or so we believe.
  30. 1949 Sunday: Future drummer of the psychedelic rock band, the Electric Prunes- Preston Ritter- is born on this date.[ii]
  31. 1951 Tuesday: Nigel Harrison—future bassist with the New York rock band, Blondie[iii] (1978-82 / 1997)—is born in Stockport, Cheshire, England, on this date.

  33. 1953 Friday: British statesman Winston Churchill was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.
  34. 1954 Saturday: After the heavy fighting on and around Huguette 6 last night and early this morning, French commanders in Dien Bien Phu understand that they no longer have the manpower on hand to launch major counterattacks against their communist opponents.  Losses last night were fierce with the loss of several units whose survivors were cobbled together into a new unit.   According to author Martin Windrow, morale was once again flagging on both sides as French defenders had been going with little sleep, few hot meals, and hardly any baths now for 45 days while the communists were scraping up reserves from across the countryside and trying to reinvigorate them for the third phase of the battle.  Casualties were horrendous for both sides. 
  35. 1961 Monday: Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles Dodgers struck out 18 batters, becoming the first major-league pitcher to do so on two separate occasions.  Elsewhere, President John F. Kennedy accepted ‘sole responsibility’ for the disaster HE set in motion at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba.  He committed Cuban exiles to action to overthrow Fidel Castro and then in their hour of need, he abandoned them to death or to long prison terms in Cuban prisons.  
  36. 1962 Tuesday: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology achieved the first satellite relay of a television signal, using NASA’s Echo 1 balloon satellite to bounce a video image from Camp Parks, California, to Westford, Massachusetts.

  53. 2004 Saturday: The United States lifts economic sanctions imposed on Libya 18 years previously for its cooperation in eliminating weapons of mass destruction.   Meanwhile, the insurgency in Iraq is gathering steam as attacks on oil tankers in Basra occur as do suicide bombings around Sadr City that kill Iraqi government forces.  The bloom is quickly off the rose.  The U.S. should never have launched the invasion the previous year and yet, they did.  George W. Bush broke it; he now owns it.
  54. 2005 Sunday: Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger undergoes inauguration as the 265th pope of the Roman Catholic Church, taking the papal name of Benedict XVI.   Meanwhile, in Kuwait, 7,000 angry Bengali workers storm the Bangladeshi embassy demanding redress for unpaid wages.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia arrest 40 Pakistani Christians brazenly practicing their faith in Riyadh.  NOT good, folks, not good…for them.
  55. 2006 Monday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lifts a 27-year-old ban on women attending public sporting events.  Wow.  Modernization on the way?  Nope.   
  56. 2007 Tuesday: Hamas decides to do what it does best today: terrorism.  They launch a barrage of missiles, rockets, and mortar shells into neighboring Israel.  Scumbags.  Use neutron bombs on this human garbage to cleanse the region of their pestilence.  Elsewhere, Kevin Tillman, brother of NFL star and slain soldier in the Afghan War Pat Tillman, testifies before Congress accusing the Bush administration of manipulating his ‘friendly fire’ death into something with which to increase recruitment and support for the ongoing regime change wars.
  57. 2008 Thursday: Following the recent destruction of a nuclear facility in Syria by the Israelis, the United States reports that North Korean technicians helped the Syrians build the reactor.  Good thing the Israelis blew it up.  Meanwhile, following Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s BIG WIN in Pennsylvania this past Tuesday, she has raked in $10 million in donations.  Both she and her opponent, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, are focusing their attentions on Indiana, the next big state in the primary battles.  Elsewhere, the United Nations is crying that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing them from getting aid to the Palestinians.
  58. 2009 Friday: Not to be outdone by terrorists in Iraq yesterday, slavering jihadis carry out yet another suicide bombing in Baghdad, killing at least 80 people and wounding or crippling another 125.  Time to start lighting up the terrorists, we say, “Use neutron bombs, send these scumbags straight to hell.”  Elsewhere, North Korea plans to try two Current TV journalists they claim were on the soil, but evidence shows they were on the Chinese side of the Yalu River and were kidnapped by the North Koreans.  WTF?
  59. 2010 Saturday: Pakistani Taliban are launching attacks all over the place but especially against NATO supply lines.  The jihadist thugs torch six NATO fuel tankers and also blow up at least 30 people in a suicide attack on a prison van carrying thugs to prison.
  60. 2011 Sunday: Pope Benedict XVI performs Easter Mass at St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City; he calls for dialogue and diplomacy to end Libya’s unrest.  Elsewhere, a group of Jewish worshippers decided to visit a holy site in the Palestinian-controlled city without coordinating their visit with Israeli Defense Forces as required by law.  They went and prayed without event; then, when returning home, they mixed it up with Palestinian law enforcement who lit them up and killed at least one of the worshippers and injured several others.  Obey the law.  
  61. 2012 Tuesday: The Obama-controlled Pentagon is creating a new intelligence service, the Defense Clandestine Service that will (supposedly) investigate threats to U.S. national interests coming from nations such as North Korea, the Chi-Coms, and Iran.  Good.  Just what we need.  Another flipping spy agency in the hands of Barack Hussein Obama.  Meanwhile, Al-Jazeera reports that the case against imprisoned Pfc. Bradley Manning must be thrown out due to prosecutorial misconduct.
  62. 2013 Wednesday: Americans learn the FBI and CIA had previous intelligence from Russia warning U.S. intelligence agencies about Tamerlane Tsarnaev’s extremist connections before the Boston Marathon bombings.   Meanwhile, in Manchester, Illinois, a mass shooting occurs leaving five dead and another one or two injured.  As police track down the shooter and engage, the gunman is killed.
  63. 2014 Thursday:  The Federal Communications Commission moves away from the idea of net neutrality, in which all Internet users can equally access and view content; the agency instead proposes to allow large companies to pay Internet service providers for access to faster streaming “lanes.”  Meanwhile, it sounds like President Barack Hussein Obama, aka the Bamster, listened to us yesterday.  He is blasting Russian dictator Vladimir Putin for waging a war of aggression in the Ukraine and is threatening additional sanctions on Moscow.
  64. 2015 Friday: As the civil war continues raging in Yemen, UNICEF reports that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of children have been slain, wounded, or maimed for life in the savage fighting there.  Iran is meddling in this war, stirring up trouble for the Saudis and the rest of the Sunni world.  They believe that if they can bring Shias to power in Yemen, they will have the Kingdom nearly surrounded.
  65. 2016 Sunday: With the U.S. silent about the upcoming joint military exercises with South Korea, North Korea moves up 300 ballistic missile launchers near the demilitarized zone on the chance they may have to go to war with both the U.S. and their southern neighbors.  Speaking of President Obama, he says the U.S. won’t be deploying ground troops to Syria and sadly, he believes the last nine months of his time in office will not see ISIS defeated.  (Note- because YOU never tried, Bamster).
  66. 2017 Monday: Arkansas puts their thumb in the eyes of the leftists as it becomes the first state to execute NOT one murderer but two on the same day, something that has not occurred since 2000.  Convicted murderers Jack Jones Jr. and Marcel Williams meet their Maker via lethal injection.
  67. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump hosts his first state dinner for visiting French President Emanuel Macron.  Elsewhere, according to IFPI, streaming music service sales overtake that of CDs, LPs, and tapes.  Such a shame but young people are extremely unintelligent when it comes to sound quality.  Elsewhere, Thailand raises its hand and suggests that it would like to hold the upcoming summit between the United States and North Korea.
  68. 2019 Wednesday: “Brave Leader” Kim Jong Un arrives in Vladivostok, Russia, aboard his armored private train for his first meetings with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.  The talks will begin tomorrow.  Speaking of the ‘Brave Leader,’ four of his foreign ministry officials underwent execution over his failed second summit with President Donald J. Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, back in February.  Accused of handing over sensitive information to the Americans, these unlucky four were lucky enough that all they faced was the firing squad and not some bizarre other form of execution dreamed up by Chairman Kim Jong Un.

  71. 2021 Saturday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 262,814 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  76. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has been sharing photos on One America News (and probably other news networks as well) of ILLEGAL ALIENS being removed from holding pens and hotels along the border and dumped into airports in the region for transport to other parts of the country.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is being slammed, rightfully so, seeing as how 30 days have passed and the so-called ‘Border Czar’ has been nowhere near the flipping border.  WTF?   In other perplexing news, ICE ends placing fines on illegal aliens.  WTF about this, too?  
  77. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden News I– White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- not the brightest bulb in the pack to be sure- says that drooling old Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress will likely NOT have many attendees as we are all observing COVID-19 restrictions. Yeah, right.  Sure.  Flipping old Joe is going to be swinging at a lot of balls but connecting with very few of them so we cannot have anyone observing the senile old coot too closely. 
  78. 2021 Saturday H: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– As Democrats continue trying to throw roadblocks in the path of the Maricopa County, Arizona’s recount and election integrity efforts, Steve Bannon asks an incredibly simple question: WHAT ARE THE DEMS AFRAID OF?  That’s it in a nutshell, what the f**k are the Democrats trying to prevent the American people seeing?   Meanwhile President Donald J. Trump calls on Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, to provide not only more support to the ongoing effort to achieve election integrity but also security so that it can proceed without rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth liberal lunatics trying to halt it.  President Trump questions WHY Democrats are so determined to STOP the ongoing efforts to find out what the hell happened in the early morning hours after Election Day 2020 and also says, the ‘results will be startling.’
  79. 2021 Saturday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Indonesia announced today that their missing submarine is presumed lost and the crew dead.  How sad.  This is a horrible tragedy.  Next, Palestinians are behaving like they always do- like a bunch of Untermensch, this time in Jerusalem for the 11th night in a row.  Alas, what is their problem?  Well, since the start of Ramadan, they have been running amok in Jerusalem, causing Israeli Defense Forces to launch a harsh crackdown on the human garbage.  Meanwhile, their brethren across the border began firing rockets into Israel.  Sounds like someone is looking for a major ass-whooping, yet again.   Next, Southeast Asian nations have reached some sort of consensus over the crisis in Myanmar.  Hmmm, what are they going to do about it?  Finally, an avalanche near the Indo-Sino border sees 8 people killed but another 384 rescued.   Elsewhere, at least 27-30 people are dead in a Baghdad COVID-19 hospital blaze (probably set by jihadists being the kind, loving people they are).
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Social Media News–  President Donald J. Trump discussed his removal from Facebook and Twitter and notes that BOTH are extremely boring and that issuing press releases is much more elegant and informative.  Next, Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame presented his third program on the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election today, “Absolute Interference,” which is a mind-blower to see just how deep the hacks by the Chi-Coms were.  Lindell showed so much evidence that we do indeed hope that it ends up before the U.S. Supreme Court where- IF Chief Justice John Roberts does not behave as he normally does- things might change.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: COVID-19 News / Updates– It appears that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for the Chi-Vi will soon be back online, even though continued reports of deaths and intensified menstrual cycles continue to predominate the news cycle.   Next, a new MIT study questions the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci dictates regarding wearing of masks and maintaining social distancing from fellow human beings.   MIT questions whether social distancing works while Republicans demand evidence from the Centers for Disease Control regarding the need for children but especially children under the age of TWO to wear flipping masks.  NO evidence says they should.   
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News I– First, an Oklahoma police officer, Nathan Ronan of the Lawton PD who was at the center of a deadly shooting has been cleared of ALL charges.  Next, the NYPD is searching for a gangbanging POS who drug one of theirs by a speeding vehicle before dumping him off in the streets.   Next, a guy in the Lone Star State was arrested after shooting a police officer in the shoulder.   Moving on, in the era of feeble old Joe Biden yet another gun crime occurs, this one on Bourbon Street in New Orleans in the wee hours of the morning where five people were shot (but none so far have died).   
  83. 2021 Saturday M: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News II– Elsewhere, convicted murderer Derek Chauvin (whom we still believe is going to be cleared of all charges provided he is not shivved between here and there) could face added charges for an arrest back in 2017.  Boy, the radical left hates to let go, like a dog humping one’s pantleg.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice has charged five people for defrauding Medicare of $65 million over the back brace scheme we think everyone has heard at least one sales pitch on the phone at one time or another.  Good.  Send them to prison, those ads were annoying.  Finally, Jeffrey Epstein’s close associate and procurer Ghislaine Maxwell pleads NOT guilty to loads more charges of sex trafficking.
  84. 2021 Saturday N: State News– Former Trump associate Mike Egan is running for the Texas 6th congressional district seat in a special election next month.   Elsewhere, Alabama passes a law that will allow student athletes to profit off their images and likenesses.   Next, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte, Republican, signed a bill that NULLIFIES all restrictions on guns.  However, the Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, Democrat, vetoed a bill that would lower the age for concealed carry firearm permits to 18.  That one is okay unless of course the individual is in law enforcement or the U.S. military.   Meanwhile, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, shared an update with his voters about his remaining eye’s condition.  He hopes to have vision restored and for him to be back on the job.
  85. 2021 Saturday O: Stupid News Of The Day– In crazy news of the day, the fossilized mummy Joe Biden says, ‘MORE troops are heading to Afghanistan even though he claims- we repeat, CLAIMS- U.S. troops are coming home on September 11, 2021.’  Wow.  These people simply do not want to leave the flipping country.  Let the Chi-Coms have ‘em.   Meanwhile, as the Chi-Vi pandemic ebbs and flows, toilet paper prices are beginning to return to normal and supplies are hitting all-time highs.   In other STUPID news, an unnamed member of the Biden regime claims that U.S. sanctions on Russia are having their desired effect because the Russians ‘went home.’  Don’t count on it…next, Portland, Oregon, declare yet another riot after Antifa burns down a Boys & Girls Club.  When are you going to start shooting these scumbags?  A little bit of lead will stop the rioting like that.  BOOM!
  86. 2021 Saturday P: Miscellaneous News I– Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO-LA, says, ‘the GOP infrastructure bill will provide more for less.’  Next, Representative Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district says that Joe Biden’s ‘New Deal’ hurts poor people the most.  Next conservative icon Ari Hoffman is taking over the helm at Seattle’s KVI radio station.   Moving on, George P. Bush is eyeing primarying Texas AG Ken Paxton.  Please- NO MORE BUSHES!  Enough with the Bush Family.   George P. Bush also says, ‘Texas is pushing back hard against the Biden regime’s orders.’  Wow.  Next, Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district says that the Dems have exposed their agenda by trying to make Washington, D.C. into the 51st state.’  Amen.

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.

On October 15, 2013, the Band released a comprehensive collection aptly titled, “Collected.”  The three-disc/1 DVD set contained 57 tracks plus more tunes on a DVD, many of which are well-known and much beloved along with some lesser known, rarities.  If you have yet to get in on the ground floor with this amazing Canadian American group, this is a superb way in which, one can introduce the music to one’s ears.  We hope you will go out and seek this one out- it’s a terrific addition to any collection of fine music.  We love it, you will love it, and you will enjoy it for years- if not decades- to come.

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of the Electric Prunes within the next 5-10 years.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iv] We should have shot down this POS satellite.

[v] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[vi] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

111. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2022

28. 1954 Wednesday: The People’s Army is launching an all-out assault on the Foreign Legion held strongpoint of Huguette 1. The communists have labored to dig approach trenches right up to the wire as well as to pull in heavy weapons for close range support. According to some Legion survivors, the last that was seen of their comrades was that they were fighting back-to-back atop the command bunker, throwing back one human wave assault after another of howling communists until finally, everything fell into silence. Still, the fighting at Dien Bien Phu will continue.

  59. 2014 Monday:  The New York Knicks fire Coach Mike Woodson after a season in which the Knicks began as champions and ended with elimination.  Elsewhere Russian separatists n the eastern Ukraine claim that two of their number have been pulled from a river, covered in stab wounds.  This is a horrendous outrage and of course the Russians are angry.  Like the Nazis in 1939 prior to the invasion of Poland also needed a pretext for invasion and so they engineered one.  Vladimir Putin is a good student.  (Note- the Russians probably killed a couple of Chechens).
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, a true jihadist if one ever existed, receives a 20-year stint in an Egyptian hoosegow for hundreds of protesters he had killed when he was the nation’s president.   Elsewhere, following the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is going to launch a federal investigation into the incident.

  64. 2019 Easter Sunday: “Climate activist” Greta Thunberg[vi] speaks at an “Extinction Rebellion” where like-minded, Kool-Aid-drinking (and modern-day Hitler Jugend-like brain-dead zombies) terrorize the city of London.  Waterloo Bridge had been closed for four days as legions of youthful nuts occupied it as they demonstrated their mass insanity over the impending DOOM of the world.  Yeah, right.  Elsewhere, ISIS carries out a string of bombings in Sri Lanka, attacking churches and hotels where Christians might be.  At least 359 people are killed outright with another 500 ore more seriously wounded.  The United States and Pope Francis condemn the attacks.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: COVID-19 Morning Update–  The confirmed world cases of the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis are 2,501,156 what with the confirmed number of global deaths sitting at 171,810 but 659,737 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we acknowledge a total confirmed cases at 800,932 with 43,006 confirmed deaths but 73,379 confirmed recoveries.  As for the Chinese statistics, IF you enjoy fairy tales, IF you enjoy fantasy fiction, the communist government claims 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries, pretty much the same as yesterday’s number and the day before that and so on and so forth.  Let this be a life lesson to everyone that communists, socialists, democratic-socialists, and every other left-wing ideology always lie to cover their tracks.  Do not believe anything the False China says.  Meanwhile, word continues trickling out that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is ‘recovering from a cardiac event or cardiac surgery which could be true just as he might be dead due to the ill effects of a coup.  We will remain vigilant and report the truth when we learn it.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: COVID-19 Evening Update– As of tonight, the world claims 2,563,384 confirmed cases of China’s lab-engineered virus, the Kung Flu.  The world stats show there are 177,415 confirmed deaths what with 681,477 confirmed recoveries.  IN the United States, there are 824,698 confirmed cases what with 45,297 confirmed deaths, and 75,050 confirmed recoveries.  As for the world’s ‘friends,’ the communist Chinese, they still claim 88,423 confirmed cases what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  As we say, “Communists always lie and so the Chinese continue doing so.”  Soon, they will be paying the price as almost every nation encircling the globe is suffering from this unnecessary disaster. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS For The Planet As A Whole: 143,012,106 confirmed cases, +1,198,849, 3,046,149  confirmed deaths, +18,967, and 81,979,884 confirmed recoveries, +863,743.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,039,261 confirmed cases, UP 160,965 from yesterday’s reporting, 574,418 confirmed deaths, UP 1,717, and 119,049,871 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii] 
  68. 2021 Wednesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 250,546 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Speaking of ‘Vegetable Joe,’ he has some cockamamie plan with which to offer tax credits to people getting the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Speaking of the Bat Flu vaccines, the FDA has found multiple irregularities in the plant manufacturing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine what with peeling paint, rodent droppings, and other things in need of correction.  NO wonder people are getting flipping blood clots (not to mention that the J & J vaccine utilizes fetal tissue culled from aborted fetuses for both manufacturing and testing.  This ain’t good, folks).

  73. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ongoing Border Catastrophe– Things are going to hell along the southern border that Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, is calling up the National Guard and deploying them to his state’s border with Mexico.  In fact, Senators Mark Kelly, D-AZ, and Kyrsten Sinema support the governor’s efforts to halt the invasion.   Meanwhile, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle want to know WHEN Joe Biden or “Kooky Kamala” Harris is going to visit the border and behold the BORDER CATASTROPHE that is occurring there 24/7.  This must stop.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Wednesday G: Crime And Punishment News / U.S. Department Of Justice News–  Senile old hag, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, continues blathering on about how ‘great it was for George Floyd to give up his life and to call out for his mama’ as he lay dying beneath the knee of convicted murderer and former Police Officer Derek Chauvin.  The leftists being what they are ALWAYS require martyrs so they can forge ahead with their sick agenda and poor Mr. Floyd was just another brick in the Democratic-Socialists’ wall.  Speaker Pelosi must lose her seat in 2022.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced that the feds are launching an investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department in a renewed drive to federalize as many police departments as possible.  This is what socialist-communist societies do, they bump up local law enforcement to federal level so they can then move them around- like the People’s Republic of China- so that law enforcement has NO ties to the communities they serve which leads to greater police brutality and mistreatment of the citizenry.  You can count on it.  This is precisely what the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act (or whatever BS name it goes by) is all about, federalizing ALL local and state law enforcement.  In other crime news, following the police shooting of a young black female attacking another with a butcher knife in Columbus, Ohio, last night, Democrats and their ‘tool’s like LeBron James are screeching for blood.  Someone, please, kick LeBron’s stupid ass.  Finally, a Virginia cop was fired- we repeat, FIRED- for donating $25 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund.  WTF?  Lt. William Kelly, an internal affairs officer in the Norfolk, Virginia, police department was terminated when his superiors learned of this callous doing in a FREE country.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday H: Crime And Punishment News Ii– After the Chauvin verdict yesterday, ‘peaceful protesters,’ aka Antifa, in Portland, Oregon, assaulted people on the street, set Starbucks stores ablaze, and attacked cops on the street.  Speaking of Officer Chauvin, he is being held in protective custody, i.e., in solitary confinement, to protect him from his fellow inmates.   Meanwhile, the four detestable skanks of the Squad, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and newbie Cori “The B***h” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, are driving up race hatred across the country while having the taxpayers spend tens of thousands of dollars to PROTECT THEM.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the case of ‘comfort women’ used by Imperial Japanese forces in the Pacific during World War II, South Korea- a country from which many of the sex slaves were taken- sides with Japan.   Speaking of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in says that ‘President Donald J. Trump failed to solve the North Korean problem.’  Uh, okay, but he gave it a better shot than any president since Ronald Reagan.   Next, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that the Chi-Coms WON’T reduce carbon emissions, nor will they slow their growth as the United States will willingly do.’  He is 100-percent correct.
  77. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Administration News I– Joe Biden is sending members of his Cabinet out to the various states to shill for his INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN, the one that costs $3.2 trillion, that very few want.   Speaking of the faux president, the Associate Press reports that Joe Biden plans to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 which means higher energy costs, less energy reliability, and a diminished middle class.   Next, Joe Biden plans to use his upcoming address to a joint session of Congress supposedly sometime in May to push for POLICE REFORM across the country.   Meanwhile, a stuttering and stammering Joe Biden says that he believes the bar to ‘convict cops is too high.’   Maybe you should zip your lips until AFTER justice has occurred there, Mr. Faux President.
  78. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Book publishers, Simon & Schuster announce that they reject a petition demanding they DON’T publish a book by Vice President Mike R. Pence.  They are going to move ahead with publication, damn the torpedoes.  Next, RINO King former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, N.J., says he could run for the White House in 2024.  It will be to YOUR embarrassment there, Big Boy.  Speaking of New Jersey, they are going to permit Gender “X” on the state’s driver’s licenses and identification cards.  Oh, goodie, kowtowing to the freaks yet again.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that failing to censure Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, yesterday has weakened both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Department of Justice.  As you know, she went to Minneapolis, Minnesota, over the weekend to stir up a lynch mob and to intimidate the jury in the trial of now-convicted murderer, Derek Chauvin.
  79. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– It appears that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, is becoming vulnerable amid ongoing attacks by President Donald J. Trump.  Former Democrat-turned-Republican and former state Representative Vernon Jones, GA 91st district,  is in a powerful position to knock Governor Kemp out in the primary election of next year.  Meanwhile, ever-drooling, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is floating the idea of a BIPARTISAN January 06, 2021, Commission to get to the bottom of the False Flag, Antifa-and-Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters that then became a mob and stormed Capitol Hill.  (Note- it does not require loads of intelligence to visualize that most of those people storming the Capitol, waving Confederate flags and what not weren’t crazed leftists bent on intimidating true protesters, lawmakers, and the American people into accepting what they know was stolen: the 2020 Presidential Election).  
  80. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III–  Next, the FBI releases a report on the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, the one that occurred on June 14, 2007, in Alexandria, Virginia, when a crazed BERNIE SANDERS VOTER attacked a baseball practice for House Republicans.  The FBI decided that the slain shooter, James Hodgkinson wanted to carry out a…wait for it…suicide by cop.  That’s right, that’s what the esteemed Federal Bureau of Investigation- in the hands of ‘highly capable’ Director Chris Wray pulled out of their hat.  What a deduction.  How sad is our world today?  Our government has become fully corrupted and it’s a shocking thing to behold for patriots.
  81. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3553 with a $40 million jackpot on the line: 03, 12, 17, 41, 42, and Mega 23.  Out of 114,936 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $40,636.   The winning ticket was sold at Fast Stop in Lake View Terrace, CA 91342.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a $90 million pot up for grabs: 21, 25, 32, 63, 67, and Powerball 06.  Out of 50,586 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,206.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 568,290 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 203,535 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 456 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  88. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.689 per gallon, $4.113 in Florida, $5.243 in Hawaii, and $4.684 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Massachusetts- $4.124.  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 23rd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Colombia: $2.398 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,399,844,953,328 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  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 Australia the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian President Vladimir Putin is declaring ‘victory over Mariupol’ even though the Ukrainian defenders fighting in the ruins of the steel factory continue killing Russians by the score.  They will not surrender and it’s clear to any observer that Mariupol could become Putin’s Stalingrad, sort of a Putingrad.  Going to be good watching them annihilate the Russians.  In other areas where Ukrainian civilians have been victimized and crushed, the Russians are raising red victory flags.  Sounds like the Soviet Union is struggling to return for Round 2.  The Russians are preparing ‘referendums in the occupied areas’ so the grateful Ukrainians can kowtow to their Soviet masters.
  90. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Although it would be a good show of support for the United States to reopen its embassy in Kyiv, the Biden regime is resisting calls for it to do this morale-boosting step.  WTF is up with slobbering Joe?   Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says his country requires $7 billion per month to sustain his nation and its fight against the Russians.  Today, we also learned that money Joe Biden is sending to Ukraine also is helping to pay its civil service.  Wow.  In other news, Russia has slapped travel bans on Vice President Kamala Harris, the REAL PRESIDENT Ron Klain, and on Meta-Facebook’s ‘Little Mark’ Zuckerberg.
  91. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The 8th busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in Washington, D.C., today.  Keep ‘em coming.  Next, 21 red states are joining forces to stop the Biden regime ending Title 42 on May 23.  Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border for the past 384 days and it’s been 298 days since she arrived to do the job.  Since the first day of the year, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens is $707,111,130.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the Biden-Harris regime took charge is $42,452,916,873.  The number of illegals who have entered the U.S. since January 01, 2022, is an appalling 1,129,483.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the U.S. is 46,561,140.  We believe the truer number is close to 85-125 million illegal aliens. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  92. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban meets with Pope Francis with the Russo-Ukrainian War as their backdrop.  Meanwhile, mystery continues surrounding WNBA star Britney Griner’s arrest and imprisonment in Russia.  In other horrifying news, Beijing has inked deals with the Solomon Islands and with Kiribati so its ships and security personnel can use them as ‘transit sites.’  (Note- the United States fought at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands and at Tarawa in present-day Kiribati during World War II and now the Chi-Coms have built forward bases threatening not only Australia and New Zealand but Hawaii and Guam as well as continues the isolation of Taiwan).
  93. 2022 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– U.S. Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, Dr. Mehmet Oz, says, ‘it’s time to for the U.S. to get back to reality on COVID-19.’  Next, the U.S. claims it’s extending COVID-19 vaccine mandates for illegal aliens at the southern border.  Uh, okay, sure you are.  Illegals can run around without following any COVID-19 mandates while the Biden regime is appealing the judge’s recent ruling ending mask mandates on public transit.

  99. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is launching a new program with which it claims it will beckon in Ukrainian refugees but not across the U.S.-Mexico border.  That is for the Russians, the Third World, and the Chi-Coms to push their agents across amidst the sea of illegal aliens.  Next, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain- uh, ‘President’ Joe Biden- announces another $800 million in military aid to Ukraine.  How much will the Biden Family skim off the top?  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime has banned Russian vessels from visiting American ports.
  100. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– The FAA is going to review the parachute stunt that occurred yesterday in the nation’s Capital that caused a mass evacuation from the U.S. Capitol Building.  Next, here is one that is a head-scratcher: the U.S. Supreme Court is backing Joe Biden’s decision to DENY benefits to Puerto Rico.  What benefits are we discussing?  Well, these federal benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens.  These benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens and Joe Biden- with the support of the John Roberts’ Supreme Court is denying these benefits to low-income, elderly, and blind Puerto Ricans.  Where the hell is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, on this topic?  Her Abuelita lives in the PR so she should be screeching like a flipping banshee, yet she’s silent.  (Note- the chief justice must truly fear the Dems packing the court as why would he back a crazy move such as this?)
  101. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News III– Thirteen of the victims of Larry Nassar are suing the Federal Bureau of Investigation for $130 million for having f**ked up the investigation into the perverted coach.  Next, the Biden regime has contracted the release of another 30 million barrels of oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve.  We suspect that like previous withdrawals under the Biden regime, this oil will flow overseas to our ‘allies’ and not to the American people.  Speaking of the oil rip-off, Rep. Rick W. Allen, R-GA 12th district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies are bringing pain to the American people.’
  102. 2022 Thursday S: Joe Biden Regime News IV– U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen weighed the cost of the Russo-Ukrainian War on Russia’s frozen assets.  Next, Vice President Kamala Harris has lost her 13th staffer- this time, her Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy.  What can you say?  The VP is a bitch who slept her way to the top.  This is fitting justice for one half of this fraudulent administration, YOU steal an election, Karma has a way of coming back and biting you on your ass and this administration is going down the crapper.  Next, left-wing, Obama economist Austan Goolsbee says that the pandemic shutdowns are the main cause of the sky-rocketing inflation eating away at average Americans’ bank accounts.
  103. 2022 Thursday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Famed radio talk show host, Infowars’ Alex Jones, is seeking immunity from the January 06, 2021, Select House Committee.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. is expected to meet with this sham committee.
  104. 2022 Thursday U: Political News I– Although this sounds somewhat hopeful, the Cook Political Report says that 27 Democrat-controlled House seats are in the toss-up column in November.   Next, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd congressional district, denies ever having advised President Donald J. Trump that ‘if they impeach you, you should resign.’  He would never have said something such as that, huh.  We are beginning to suspect Leader McCarthy is in the same class with “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT.
  105. 2022 Thursday V: Political News II– Never say that President Donald J. Trump’s endorsements don’t matter (although this one leaves us puzzled).  J.D. Vance- venture capitalist and author- has seen his lead in the race for retiring Senator Rob Portman’s seat in Ohio has leapt by 7 points to the good.  One of his Republican challengers- Mike Gibbons- says he still can’t forget that Vance voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Neither can we.
  106. 2022 Thursday W: Political News III–  Talk about turning something once good into a piece of festering cow crap, other than Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the JFK Profiles in Courage Award is going to Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-large district, as well as to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, DS, the Copper State’s House Speaker Rusty Bowers, RINO, and to Peach State Election Department employee Wandrea “Shaye” Moss.
  107. 2022 Thursday X: Big Tech News– In a ‘put up or shut up move,’ tech multi-billionaire Elon Musk has $46.5 billion in cash with which to buy Twitter.  The price he is offering is $54.20.  Next, folks, it’s so successful that following its launch on March 29, 2022, it’s official: CNN+ is shutting down on April 30, 2022.  Adios, Chris Wallace.  POS.  In other news, the Florida House of Representatives voted to strip Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges.  This did not come easy, however, as Democrats and their rent-a-mobs of LGBTQIA+ crazed psychos tried to carry out an ‘insurrection’ a la January 6, 2021, of their own although very few news media sites are labeling it as such- but we will.
  108. 2022 Thursday Y: Sports News I– Here’s an interesting one: the NFL says that the black coaches’ discrimination lawsuits lack merit.  Wow.  We thought the NFL was all WOKE now and here they are throwing the black coaches’ suits under the bus.  Shame on them.
  109. 2022 Thursday Z: Miscellaneous News I– The Pro-Death Movement in Kentucky gains a temporary win what with a stay on the state’s new anti-abortion law.  For some reason, the Trump campaign has been ordered to pay $1.3 million in damages and attorneys’ fees to former adviser Omarosa Manigault.  Finally, some glorious film hit the news cycle today.  Some dumbass airlines passenger was hassling Mike Tyson during a flight and wouldn’t take ‘buzz off’ for an answer.  The former heavyweight champion turned around and punched the living shit out of this dimwit who then posted photos of his bloody face on TikTok.  Will they ever learn?

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

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iii] 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.

[iv] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[v] We promoted “Led Zeppelin IV” on Saturday, 12-July-2014.  This ranks among the greatest albums of all time.

[vi] This whack-job girl- Greta Thunberg- should get some sort of mental and emotional aid because she and other young people like her have been indoctrinated by people seeking to deploy them to carry out their Marxist agenda.

  64. 2018 Sunday: The Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII by pounding the New England Patriots, 41-33.  It was a great game and although Tom Brady played well, one could tell he was feeling his age.  It was the first Super Bowl victory for the Eagles, and they did it with backup quarterback Nick Foles.  Congratulations, Philly!  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson suggests the United States ‘could employ force in a coup attempt against the Maduro regime in Venezuela.’
  65. 2019 Monday: As things go from bad to worse in Venezuela, several European countries- namely Germany, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom- recognize opposition leader Juan Guiado as the interim leader of the devastated country.  This of course does not sit well with former bus driver and current president Nicolas Maduro.   Meanwhile, Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam, Democrat, delays his decision on whether he will step down from office as he is still not sure if the picture in his college yearbook depicting him as either a member of the KKK or dressed in blackface is ‘really him.’  Come on, bigot, leave office NOW.
  66. 2020 Tuesday: Once again Democrats demonstrate they cannot steal an election properly.  Last night was the Iowa caucuses- ‘first in the nation’ (WHY?)- and the results have not yet been made available to the public.  Millions of Americans speculate that Joe Biden came in 4th or 5th and that either communist Bernie Sanders or Podunk town Mayor Pete came in at the top.  Therefore, Troy Price- chair of the IA Democratic Party- is doing everything possible to find more caucus results from outhouses and condemned buildings to flip the votes to CHOMO Joe Biden.  Disaster strikes again.  And the Democrats claim Donald Trump and the Republicans stole an election!  WTF!  Then, some results trickled out that showed Mayor Pete (26.9%) first followed by Sanders (25.1%) followed by Liz Warren (18.3%) followed by Joe Biden (15.6%) followed by Amy Klobuchar (12.6%).  The political dead were Andrew Yang (1.0%), Tom Steyer (less than 1%), Uncommitted (less than 1%), Michael Bloomberg (less than 1%) and Tulsi Gabbard (less than 1%).
  67. 2020 Tuesday A: COVID-19 continues raging around the world.  The Princess Cruise Lines Diamond Princess finds itself in Yokohama Bay, Japan, in quarantine with all its passengers onboard.  They cannot get off, they cannot leave, NO one will have them as they have Chi-Vi-infected people on the ship.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms announce the death toll has surpassed 400 victims and more than 20,000 ill people yet asks the United States ‘not to overreact’ as the U.S. seeks access to information.  Elsewhere, Hong Kong reports its first COVID-19 death making it the second person outside the PRC to succumb from the growing pandemic.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump delivers his third State of the Union Address and when he’s wrapping it up, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi takes his speech and rips it to shreds in front of the entire world.  Wow.  Boot this hag from the people’s house, please.  
  68. 2021 Thursday: The proponents of continuous war- aka the military-industrial-politico complex- seek to keep U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan despite threats from the Taliban as to what might happen to them if they halt the withdrawal.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden has put a freeze on troop withdrawals from Germany and their redeployment elsewhere, something the previous president sought due to Germany closely tying itself to Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has ordered a military-wide standdown so the military can root through all its WHITE members seeking to uncover racism, bigotry, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, and whatever else is the ‘in’ thing at the moment.  It will accomplish this by going through all social media posts of its white servicemembers.  Although they are NOT saying they are exclusively singling out whites, we know that they are.  Such is the modern-day United States of America.   Speaking of all this latent racism and bigotry among white people, what does Joe Biden do at the prayer breakfast?  He calls out ‘political’ extremism meaning ‘white supremacism,’ something that NO longer exists.  What a world in which, we live…
  69. 2021 Thursday A: California Governor Gavin Newsom, Democrat, is holding off on naming a replacement to fill outgoing AG Xavier Becerra until after he’s been confirmed as the next secretary of Health and Human Services.  There is a possibility he won’t because he is such a whacked-out, far-left nut that he might not make it although in this time, it appears the ‘crazier the better.’  Meanwhile, Politico reports that the recall of Governor Newsom now is ‘unavoidable’ seeing as how he has few if any remaining supporters.  He has proven to be a greater disaster than Governor Gray Davis ever was, another Democrat who was recalled about 16 years ago.
  70. 2021 Thursday B: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce urges- implores- Joe Biden to compromise on the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill as the 46th president considers bypassing the GOP.  Meanwhile, in a nod to Joe Biden, the U.S. Supreme Court announces it will NOT hear oral arguments in Trump-related immigration cases.  Next, union officials from the state of Alabama are meeting with the 46th president to discuss the ongoing case of unionizing the Amazon.com fulfillment center in the state.  Amazon is resisting its employees demands for union protections while labor leaders are determined to force the online retail giant to buckle under to their demands.
  71. 2021 Thursday C: Kamran Abbasi- editor of the British Medical Journal- has accused world governments of ‘social murder’ over their mishandling of the Chinese Virus Crisis.  Regarding the Chi-Com Virus, the CDC says, “Inoculating teachers is not necessary to reopen schools” yet public schools remain closed while private schools are up and running.  Speaking of schools, San Francisco Mayor London Breed and the San Francisco School District is at war with one another as the mayor demands they reopen the schools while the school unions tell her to go f**k herself.  We say someone must be brave like Ronald Reagan was with the air traffic controllers, give them an ultimatum to open or get fired and then when they won’t reopen, fire the entire flipping lot of these scurrilous scumbags.  It is the ONLY thing to do.
  72. 2021 Thursday D: Following the House GOP vote to keep censured Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney in her leadership post, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy calls for ‘UNITY’ while forcing Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene to apologize for ALL her statements prior to becoming a member of Congress.  Our California colleagues inform us that they will NO longer vote for Congressman McCarthy, even if it means Democrats take his seat.  Enough is enough is what they say.  Speaking of Congresswoman Greene, she can no longer serve on any committees.  After all, upstanding Illinois RINO Adam Kinzinger says ‘Greene cannot serve unless she proves she is ‘contrite’ for her past actions.  Speaking of political corruption and the like, New York state lawmakers are fighting to block Attorney General Letitia James investigation into all the deaths Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has caused and tried to coverup.  Wow.
  73. 2021 Thursday E:  Recently appointed to a three-year term on the Council of the Administration Conference of the United States, Trump appointee Roger Severino- asked on Wednesday to resign or be fired by the 46th president- has filed a lawsuit against ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for wrongful termination.  Good.  People must fight back against fascism wherever they find it.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ the 46th president is considering sending every American (Chi-Com-manufactured) face masks so as to fight the Wuhan Bat Flu running amok around the world.  Sadly, like most masks, they will end up blowing across the streets and highways of the country, collecting along fence lines, in gutters, and everywhere else as do billions of plastic bags.   Most people are not going to wear this crap, Joe, so please, don’t waste taxpayer dollars on Chi-Com facemasks.   Speaking of Mr. Biden, son, Hunter’s ‘memoirs’ are coming out in April, entitled, “How I raked in Billions while smoking Crack and banging Prepubescent Girls.”  We’re really looking forward to this book!  (We don’t know what the title really is, but wouldn’t it be great if this were the title?)
  74. 2021 Thursday F: With the Biden COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill coming soon to a town near you, several Kroger stores in California are already closing down as they cannot afford the increased minimum wage to $15 per hour that is included within it.  Hell, NO one can so expect millions of other stores to call it quits over the course of the year and the OMB claims everything will be peachy-keen by mid-year.  What a load of crap.  Meanwhile, there was an 80-percent jump in gun sales in January 2021.  Heck, several of our members went out and beefed up their gun collections while some of our California members put them into secure sites while informing law enforcement they were missing.  NO one is going to hand over firearms.   Speaking of weapons, U.S. Envoy to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, Robert Wood says the ‘Biden administration is going to pursue arms control and engagement with the Chi-Coms.’  Woo-oo!  Next, famed attorney Lin Wood is now under investigation for VOTER FRAUD.  Finally, famed Watergate plumber Eugenio Martinez has died at the age of 98.   
  75. 2021 Thursday G: In the House of Representatives, Marjorie Taylor Greene has been removed by a party line vote- 218 to 210- from her two major committee assignments- Education & Labor and Budget.  Democrats are exuberant and Republicans silent.  What they are doing is making Greene bigger than before which is what the Dems are also doing to former President Donald J. Trump by demanding he appear at the ‘re-impeachment trial’ next week and testifying under oath.   Although the Democrats do not believe this, they are going to be punished by voters more ways than one because even if H.R. 1 becomes law, Republicans are already converting legions of illegal aliens to vote GOP in next year’s mid-terms.  Two can play the same game, folks.
  76. 2021 Thursday H: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 104,684,395 confirmed cases, +435,785, 2,277,590, confirmed deaths, +13,798, and 58,164,975 confirmed recoveries, +271,687.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,791,783 confirmed cases, up 60,966 from yesterday’s reporting, 454,392 confirmed deaths, UP 1,365, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE- in the White House 16 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 49,580 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  77. 2021 Thursday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,366,597 confirmed cases, 42,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,187 confirmed cases, 416 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 319,502 confirmed cases, 4,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- New York: currently, thanks to Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, they have 1,444,199 confirmed cases, 43,687 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 668,874 confirmed cases, 4,948 confirmed deaths, and 589,311 confirmed recoveries.    For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Russia: currently, they have 3,917,918 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 75,205 confirmed deaths, and 3,389,913 confirmed recoveries.   In other Chinese Virus news, Johnson & Johnson is seeking the FDA to give their one-shot Wuhan Flu vaccine the go-ahead necessary with which to start getting it into the arms of the American people.
  78. 2021 Thursday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,055.86, UP 332.26 points (+1.08%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,777.74, UP 167.20 points (+1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,871.74, UP 41.57 points (+1.09%).  The price of GOLD is $1,796.40 per troy oz., +5.20 (+0.29%) while the price of SILVER is $26.43 per troy ounce, +0.20 (+0.75%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,107.20 per troy oz, +0.04 (+0.36%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.01 (+0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,280.70 per troy oz, +4.10 (+0.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $56.59 per barrel, +0.36 (+0.64%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.37.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000027 Bitcoin (BTC).  In other economic news, Shell Oil’s profits have slumped to their lowest level in 20 years.  Thank you, Joe Biden.
  79. 2021 Thursday K: The Jeffrey Epstein fund for victims has abruptly halted its payouts.  No one is sure as to WHY?  Meanwhile, as the truth continues coming about Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, birth name Sandy Cortez, and her ‘terrifying moments in the Capitol Complex on January 6, when Antifa-led mobs stormed the Capitol Building, we learn she was not even present.  She was nowhere near the action so as the truth continues coming out, she has been yanking down tweets and videos so as not to embarrass herself.  Girl- you are already embarrassed.  Elsewhere, the attorneys for Donald Trump says he WON’T answer a demand from his inquisitors to show up for next week’s SHOW TRIAL in the U.S. Senate.  Speaking of President Trump, he resigned from the Screen Actors Guild today.  Why should he?  It’s a kangaroo court.  Finally, state legislators are going to town on Governor Tony Evers’ MASK MANDATE.  No one is going to wear this crap.  It’s over and done.
  80. 2021 Thursday L:   The U.S. Border Patrol is reporting its agents are being overrun by tens of thousands of illegal aliens.  Mexican states along the border with the U.S. no longer are accepting returns of illegal aliens so the illegals are ‘caught’ and then ‘released’ into the interior of the United States.  Without Donald Trump in the White House, Democrats plans of social re-engineering the United States into a Third World S-hole country are underway.  Meanwhile, a report says that during the four years Donald Trump spent in the White House, he lost half his net worth.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden threatens to amp up restrictions on the Russians if they fail to free Alexei Navalny.  Russia responds with ‘bug off.’   Finally, following Congressman Matt Gaetz asking House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, to recite the Pledge of Allegiance ahead of every meeting, Nadler tells his GOP colleague, more or less, to ‘bug off’ like the Russians told Joe Biden on Navalny.  Wow.  Patriotism (or lack of it on the part of the Democrats).
  81. 2021 Thursday M: We learned that someone has made off with 10# of C-4 plastic explosive from a USMC base in California, most likely Camp Pendleton.  NOT good.  Meanwhile, a federal judge in Oregon says it’s ‘okay’ for state officials to provide COVID-19 immunizations to prisoners in the state’s hoosegows.  They will receive their immunizations before senior citizens and schoolteachers.  There you go.  Next, Joe Biden revives the old stories of being ‘shot at while overseas’ in much the same way Hillary Clinton used to tell comparable stories.  It’s all bogus but it makes for good tall tales told around campfires late at night.  Elsewhere, freshman Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorne says he has ‘no regrets’ about speaking at the Stop the Steal Rally in Washington, D.C., on January 6, the day of the Antifa-led storming of the Capitol Building. 
  82. 2021 Thursday N: Speaking of the Stop the Steal Rally on January 6, Tucker Carlson reported something extremely disturbing tonight on his show on Fox News Channel.  He reported that Bank of America is actively investigating charges made by its customers between January 5-7, 2021, in and around Washington, D.C., in the hope of locating ‘Pro-Trump extremists and white supremacists’ so it can then hand the over to federal law enforcement.  IF you were in D.C. on those dates and bought a donut and a coffee, BOA handed that information over to the feds who have already knocked on doors and questioned people.  Wow.  Is this the bank with which you want to do business?  Not us, we are closing our accounts as quickly as we can.  Meanwhile, returning to the story mentioned first above in “L,” the Border Patrol reports that it has arrested 11 Iranians attempting to cross the border into the United States from Mexico.  NOT GOOD. 
  83. 2021 Thursday O: First-time unemployment claims have fallen the third straight week in a row, down to 779,000 jobless claims for a total of 17.8 million Americans on government assistance.  However, as soon as the minimum wage rises to $15 per hour, we expect there will be 1.5 million jobless claims in the first week with 750,000 to one million per week after that.  Add to that the numbers of illegal aliens now being permitted into the country, and we expect by late March-early April to see an economic depression rivaling that of 1929.  Secure your wealth, hide your funds, troubled times are coming.  There is no way the TRIPLE THREAT of (1) a higher minimum wage combined with (2) the ongoing COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions plus (3) a sudden vast pool of low-skilled to unskilled labor is going to cause what the OMB says is going to be a massive economic recovery by June 2021.  We haven’t even included skyrocketing energy costs thanks to the cessation of fracking on federal lands yet.  It’s going to be BAD.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden will no longer provide support to the Saudi-led war in neighboring Yemen in the fight against Iran and their proxies, the Houthi rebels.  Yet another pro-Iranian policy.
  84. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention released another classic album, this one a live one: “Babbacombe Lee Live Again” on January 23, 2012.  During their tour of 2011, the band performed their entire concept album, “Babbacombe Lee” about the man they could not hang.  Here is a reprise of what we said about the original release that came out in 1971: “Well, what is surprising about a British folk band doing a theme album on a British historical character, John Babbacombe Lee, a condemned murderer sent to the gallows.  However, luck saved Mr. Lee because the gallows failed to operate properly not once, not twice, but three separate times thus he received a reprieve.  Obviously, the Good Lord did not want Lee dead.”  The album features the current lineup of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  One must love this famed British ensemble as they continue plugging along, finding additional fans to add to generations of older ones and still they sell records, sell out tours, and bring joy to everyone in the world.  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your listening regimen- we think you will be glad you did.

  69. 2018 Wednesday: The district attorney of San Francisco, George Gascón says that the city by the bay is going to retroactively apply its new laws regarding the now legal use of marijuana to 5,000 old convictions which is the correct thing to do.  Far too many people in the 1960s like Dino Valenti and David Freiberg of Quicksilver Messenger Service[xiii] served time for unfair convictions.  Usually, we don’t agree with most of what comes out of Frisco but this time, yes, yes, we do.
  70. 2019 Thursday: The European Parliament votes to recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate ruler in Caracas which leads the Maduro regime to begin arresting foreign journalists from Spain, France, and neighboring Columbia.  The Venezuelan secret police are going out and rounding up everyone they deem to be a threat.
  71. 2020 Friday: Today is the day- or so millions of Americans hope- that the impeachment farce of President Donald J. Trump will move to a vote for acquittal or if the Democrats are lucky to get what they seek- witnesses will occur.  Let us hope for the former and not the latter.  By mid-day, the Senate voted 51-49 against calling witnesses, deflating the sputtering Democratic Party balloon.  Two Republicans- Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah voted with the Democrats.  Meanwhile, the first Democrat to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination- former Maryland Congressman John Delaney and seemingly decent guy became the 16th Democrat to bail from the race.  He entered the race- get this- on July 28, 2017.  Oh, well.  Elsewhere, the Kung Flu continues spreading across the globe.  Italy reports its first couple of cases and prohibits cruise ships from offloading thousands of passengers.  Democrats in the U.S. tell everyone to go to “Chinatown,” to ‘go hug Chinese people.’  That advice would devastate Italy and other WOKE Western nations.  
  72. 2021 Sunday: DAY TWELVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME: the Biden White House says that IT’S going to investigate the GameStop matter.  Uh, excuse us, Joe, isn’t that the job of the Treasury or Justice Departments?   Meanwhile, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom now is coming under verbal assault from Democrats besides Republicans as the numbers demanding his recall continue increasing by the day.  This loser- Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- is going to lose his seat.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and the GOP have raised $255.4 million in the two months since Election Day 2020.  Elsewhere, 39.6 million Americans underwent FBI background checks for gun purchases.  Heck,  some of the chef-bloggers here bought guns last year, there is NO way we wouldn’t, especially when you consider all the left-wing Marxist violence in the streets.
  73. 2021 Sunday A:  Officer Brian Sicknick- the Capitol Hill police officer slain by Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs during the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6 will lie in state in the Rotunda in the building where he served later this week.  Elsewhere, we learn- no big surprise- that 98-percent of Twitter employees donated to Democrats.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Claudia Tenney’s lead in her New York Congressional race is now becoming insurmountable and we expect a judge early this upcoming week to announce her the ‘winner.’  Next, President Donald J. Trump once again has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.   Finally, the Arizona state senate is hiring its own investigators to delve into the rampant election fraud that occurred in that state.        
  74. 2021 Sunday B: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,871,614 confirmed cases, +468,367, 2,225,773, confirmed deaths, +11,160, and 56,981,674 confirmed recoveries, +326,805.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,423,597 confirmed cases, up 140,106 from yesterday’s reporting, 446,010 confirmed deaths, UP 2,481, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported earlier this week.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic old fool.  NOW.
  75. 2021 Sunday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,309,463 confirmed cases, 40,697 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 315,448 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the Northern Marianas Islands: currently, they have 131 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 643,435 confirmed cases, 4,796 confirmed deaths, and 572,511 confirmed recoveries.   
  76. 2021 Sunday D: Warnings are being raised about Chi-Com megacorporation BGI Group, an entity that ostensibly seeks to process data from COVID-19 tests from around the world all for a generous price and plenty of donations where and when necessary to open the doors for them.  In exchange, they collect biodata of U.S. and global citizens which then is shipped back to the Chi-Coms who then store this data for future use.  Anytime the Chi-Coms say they want to ‘help’ a country is when everyone must awaken, take note, and begin working to push back against these totalitarian, fascist-communist thugs.  We must be aware of everything the Chi-Coms seek to do with U.S. biodata as you can be sure they are going to use it against the American people, NOT to help them as they proclaim.
  77. 2021 Sunday E: BIG NFL NEWS- L.A. Rams quarterback Jared Goff has been traded to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.  The Lions will also receive two 1st round and one 3rd round draft pick.  NO PRO BOWL THIS YEAR THANKS TO THE CHI-COMS AND THEIR FLIPPING VIRUS.
  78. 2022 Monday: Stick around for the news of the day…

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

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

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[viii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[ix] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[x] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.

[xi] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[xii] We should have promoted the music of Asia around the time we did King Crimson and/or Family but we failed to do so.  However, we hope to do so sometime within the next 10-15 years.  

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

27. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JANUARY 27, 2022

2021 Wednesday G: A U.S. terrorism alert- political violence might be coming. Of course, political violence is coming, and they know it: another false flag operation around the time the U.S. Senate conducts the second Trump impeachment trial, Antifa violence with members dressed as Trump supporters once again, hence why 7,000 National Guard troops remain in Washington, D.C.

  62. 2020 Monday: The impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump resumes with the defense putting on its second day of arguments in support of the 45th president.  Some of the points made by the team are devastating for the partisan Democrats seeking to topple him.   Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms send high-ranking officials to Wuhan to investigate WTF is going on there with the COVID-19 epidemic.   Meanwhile, Germany confirms its first case of the rapidly spreading virus.
  63. 2021 Wednesday: Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joins the conservative Washington, D.C., think tank, the Hudson Institute.  They are proud to have him and look forward to a glorious future.  Mr. Pompeo raises warnings about Beijing’s control over the current ‘president.’  Meanwhile, the GOP is attempting to respond in real time to all the moves the Biden administration is rapidly doing.  We hope so because ‘President’ Biden is going to ruin the country if not stopped.   Speaking of Biden-initiated damage, Senator Steve Daines says that ‘Biden is returning America to the 1970s’ when we were dependent upon foreign countries for our supply of energy.  We must fight all the bogus Climate Change executive orders the senile 46th president is forcing down the throats of the American people.  Elsewhere, sniveling left-wing groups are braying for Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s resignation over past remarks ‘advocating violence’ against Democratic leaders such as drooling octogenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Grow up and shut up.
  64. 2021 Wednesday A: ‘President’ Joe Biden calls Texas GOP Congressman Chip Roy ‘un-American’ after Congressman Roy said, more of less of the 46th president’s mask mandate that #46 could kiss his rear end. So what?  What Democrats said about Trump was far worse so ‘Beijing Biden’ should STFU.  Next, ‘President’ Biden says he’s going to reopen the Obamacare markets so people can rush out and get them some Obamacare once again.  Wow.  Speaking of ‘Beijing Biden,’ people are curious as to WHY he remains MUM on Chi-Com repression as well as its continued lies that ‘Wuhan virus no come from Wuhan but come from outside China.  No good Imperialist running dog Yankee send this crap to PRC and then blame us.’  Sure, we did, sure.  Meanwhile, a new poll suggests Americans are growing eager to receive their vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  NOT us, we are content to wait at the very back of the line, after felons, illegal aliens, and foreign countries.
  65. 2021 Wednesday B: YouTube extends its ban on former President Donald J. Trump.  Next, Google plans to launch a new Website in Australia amid content payment battle between the massive search engine and the Australian government.   Meanwhile, BOTH Twitter and Facebook are attempting to make it appear that they are ‘neutral’ by shutting down some Antifa and other leftist groups accounts.  All in a day’s work.  Speaking of Antifa, journalist Andy Ngo is returning to the relative safety in England over death threats spewing from the pie holes of Antifa thugs.  Mr. Ngo says the authorities in the U.S. have done nothing about the threats, even when he provided them with personal information.  That’s left-leaning America for you.
  66. 2021 Wednesday C: Once again, the Cancel Culture strikes as famed conservative pitcher, World Series winner and advocate for autistic children, Steve Schilling denied a place in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.  Elsewhere, a Wisconsin pharmacist- Steve Brandenburg- who corrupted more than 500 doses of the vaccine for the Chi-Vi pleaded guilty in a federal court to multiple charges, each of which carries a 10-year-maximum penalty.  Apparently, he subscribed to ‘conspiracy theories’ and ‘alternative histories,’ which seems to be a common charge nowadays, but we do not condone what he did.  Speaking of COVID-19, a recent CDC study shows ‘low spread of the virus in schools.’  Thus, the question- why are the schools still closed?
  67. 2021 Wednesday D: A coalition of left-wing activists launch a campaign in support of ‘President’ Joe Biden’s immigration reform bill meaning allow in millions of illegals, make them citizens, and give them all benefits while everyone pays for it.  Elsewhere, in New York City, a NYPD officer is recovering in the hospital after being shot in the low back by a perp the night before.  Of course, Mayor Bill Di Blasio shows ‘concern.’  Meanwhile, a hostage situation at a children’s hospital in Austin, Texas, leaves two people dead.   Next, New York Republican lawmakers introduce a bill to help restaurant owners and employees in their state even if Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo won’t.   Speaking of corrupt governors, a Southern California GOP group calls for incompetent Golden State Governor Gavin Newsom to resign.
  68. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden signs three executive orders today- all dealing with racial equity and climate change- bringing the number of orders signed in the first eight days to 40- an unheard-of number- which tells us he does not expect to continue without opposition for much longer.  Opposition from where?  No one knows.  Elsewhere, Goldman-Sachs CEO David Solomon receives a pay cut of $10 million over his firm’s ties to the 1MDB Malaysian bribery scandal.   Speaking of corruption, a UK lawmaker is accusing HSBC of aiding the Chi-Coms in their Hong Kong crackdown. 
  69. 2021 Wednesday F: Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, Democrat, says ‘Democrats should set aside impeachment and seek censure of former President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, former Trump White House Chief of State Mark Meadows says that President Biden is putting America last with all his executive orders.   Elsewhere, religious liberties advocates are fearful over the ‘tumultuous days ahead under the Biden administration.’   Next, the Netherlands are facing the worst civil unrest in four decades as people have grown increasingly angry over the harsh China Virus lockdowns and restrictions in that Western European nation.    
  70. 2021 Wednesday G: A U.S. terrorism alert- political violence might be coming.  Of course, political violence is coming, and they know it: another false flag operation around the time the U.S. Senate conducts the second Trump impeachment trial, Antifa violence with members dressed as Trump supporters once again, hence why 7,000 National Guard troops remain in Washington, D.C.  WHEN the Antifa violence erupts, the Democrats will use it as yet another pretext for taking more rights away from the American people.  ALL Trump supporters MUST avoid any public demonstrations.  Speaking of former President Trump, his popularity among Republicans is at 81-percent. Meanwhile, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ, says Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are drawing armies of illegals to the southern border.   Elsewhere,  in the first week of the Biden administration, we see loss of tens of thousands of jobs, tens of thousands more dead from the Chinese Virus, and SIX MILLION more returned to the Food Stamp rolls after a steep decline in Food Stamp use under the previous administration thanks to a booming economy.
  71. 2021 Wednesday H: Actress Cloris Leachman dies at age 94.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken sees a ‘long road ahead to an Iran deal.’  We already had one- choke them out of existence.  No wonder Israel is on high alert regarding the Islamic Republic.  However, new Secretary of State Blinken seeks a close cooperation with the Chi-Coms which is understandable because both he and his boss, President Joe Biden have benefitted from Chi-Com largesse.  Spooky.  Elsewhere, Dick Morris tells Newsmax TV that the Biden administration is WRONG in banning the 1776 Commission.  We concur.
  72. 2021 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 100,739,720 confirmed cases, +538,462, 2,170,237, confirmed deaths, +15,707, and 55,684,777 confirmed recoveries, +367,853.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,769,724 confirmed cases, up 165,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 431,377 confirmed deaths, UP 4,253, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as yesterday’s.
  73. 2021 Wednesday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,234,088 confirmed cases, 38,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,903 confirmed cases, 404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 307,880 confirmed cases, 4,245 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Vermont: currently, they have 11,379 confirmed cases, 172 confirmed deaths, and 7,696 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 621,590 confirmed cases, 4,605 confirmed deaths, and 542,345 confirmed recoveries.  
  74. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,303.17, DOWN 633.87 points (-2.05%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,270.60, DOWN 335.47 points (-2.61%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,750.77, DOWN 98.85 points (-2.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,837.70 per troy oz., -7.20 (-0.39%) while the price of SILVER is $25.24 per troy ounce, -0.144 (-0.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,069.70 per troy oz, -9.30 (-0.86%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.02 (-0.56%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,310.50 per troy oz, -14.50 (-0.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.39 per barrel, -0.46 (-0.87%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.28.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000033 Bitcoin.   
  75. 2021 Wednesday L: Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said virus uncertainty remains high and called on Congress to pass more stimulus to boost the U.S. Economy.   Yet, the country is trillions of dollars in debt.  The best way to repair the damage caused by the Wuhan Virus is to REOPEN the economy, permit the American people to return to work, seal the borders to all illegal aliens, and offer low-cost recovery loans like what happened following the San Francisco Earthquake (the original one) and subsequent fire.  That is how Bank of America became as powerful and as big as they are.  In other news, the FBI arrested journalist Doug Mackey today for political memes he shared online back in 2016.  WTF?  Is this man a CRIMINAL?
  76. 2021 Wednesday M: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3529 with a $15 million jackpot on the line: 09, 10, 16, 30, 46, and Mega 13.  Out of 117,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $12,297 apiece.  One ticket was sold at Circle K at El Cajon, CA, 92019, the next at the Dollar Plus and Party Supplies, in Vallejo, CA 94589, and the third at the Wen’s Donut and Bakery, South El Monte, CA 91733.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #815 with a pot of $20 million up for grabs- 17, 33, 35, 42, 52, and Powerball 09.  Out of 54,394 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $14,217 apiece.

  65. 2020 Sunday:  Afghan government forces backed up by Coalition forces have had enough of the ongoing Taliban violence and launches operations against Taliban forces across nine provinces.  The body toll of the Islamists for the day is about 51 with no sign that Afghan troops going to give them an inch.  Meanwhile in Syria, Syrian government forces are cleaning out jihadists and other terrorists in Idlib Province as the government makes a concerted push to reclaim towns and villages from remaining rebels.   Elsewhere, someone gets ahold of an unreleased portion of the manuscript of former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, “The Room Where It Happened.”  In the unauthorized portion, Bolton says ‘Trump told him that unfreezing aid to Ukraine hinged on whether the government of Volodymyr Zelensky would provide dirt on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to the administration.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: As Senator Patrick Leahy, D-VT, swears in U.S. senators for the upcoming ‘impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump,’ West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is joined by Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema vow NOT to vote to overthrow the filibuster as knuckle-dragging Senate “Majority Leader” Chuck Schumer, D-NY, seeks to do.  Speaking of the upcoming second impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump, the Senate holds a vote on whether to impeach or not to impeach the 45th president.  By a vote of 55-45 the Senate votes to move ahead with five of those voting in favor to hold the trial are Republicans: Senators Pat Toomey, Mitt Romney, Susan Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and Susan Collins, respectfully of Pennsylvania, Utah, Alaska, Nebraska, and Maine.  Losers.
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Speaking of impeachment, noted legal scholar, professor, and trial attorney Alan Dershowitz says that ‘if the chief justice does not preside at the trial, it is BOGUS, that it’s little more than political theater.’  The famed jurist quoted Abraham Lincoln’s famous words regarding the conquered South after the Civil War: ‘with malice towards none and with charity for all,’ noting that the Democrats are doing the exact opposite in their treatment of the former president, his supporters, and those who disagree with what the Democrats are doing.  Regarding the sham impeachment, President Trump is adding another attorney from South Carolina to his defense team- former federal prosecutor Deborah Barbier to his bevy of lawyers. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: Subsequently- regarding the upcoming impeachment trial of President Trump, 29 Republican senators will oppose it to their utmost.  Mark Halperin- questions whether Mitch McConnell is reading accurately the mood of the GOP and is now wavering on earlier comments that he would ‘vote to convict Mr. Trump.’  “Cocaine Mitch” is one of the biggest snakes in the U.S. Senate and although he has done some good things, he is little more than an a**-kissing POS of the Democrats.  Trump helped him win HIS election and much like the scorpion on the back of the frog crossing the river, Senate MINORITY Leader McConnell stabbed him in the back.  Kentucky- recall this scumbag NOW.  If you can.
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” “CM” and Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Chuck Schumer have arrived at a power-sharing deal that will see all committees with equal numbers of Republicans and Democrats but with Democrats serving as the chairmen-and-women.   Speaking of losers, ‘President’ Joe Biden says, “The impeachment trial must go on,” mumbling whatever his earpiece tells him to say such as ‘if the trial does NOT go forward, it could damage the nation.’  Meanwhile, former President Donald J. Trump has opened an Office of the Former President in Florida, an office with which, he will find qualified conservative candidates to primary RINO scumbags in upcoming elections.  Yesterday, he pledged his full-fledged support to Sarah Huckabee Sanders to run for governor of Arkansas in 2022.  Visit www.45office.com. Contact Mr. Trump there.  In other possible election news, many believe Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan will seek Senator Rob Portman’s seat in 2022 as will Georgia Congressman Doug Collins the seat of pro-China RINO Governor Brian Kemp.  We expect both to win.
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: Kevin McCarthy mocks ‘President’ Joe Biden’s calls for ‘unity.’  The ‘46th president mumbles what his handlers tell him to say then does as they tell him to do which is NOT UNITY.   Google and Microsoft are suspending donations to all Republicans who did not accept the results of the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  Elsewhere, the Goya Foods Board of Directors censures CEO Robert Unanue over his unabashed support of President Donald J. Trump.  In other ‘President’ Biden news, his press secretary- Jen Psaki- does not seem to know a great deal.  When asked by reporters as to WHY the ‘Biden administration’ is not going to stay tough on preventing the Chi-Coms from penetrating the U.S. power grid, she had no answers just like she had no answers regarding Antifa and their continued running amok around the country.  Speaking of Antifa, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler had to pepper spray a POS Antifa punk for getting in his face in a restaurant.  Good for you.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: Antifa-infiltrated Capitol Hill protesters continue flaunting their successes at the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6.  Speaking of the event, the woman who ran off with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s laptop may face a permanent Internet ban once she is out of legal jeopardy.   Speaking of Internet and social media bans, Twitter removes- permanently- the account of My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell’s account yet after ‘removing the account,’ it began retweeting all manner of left-wing messages so how does one lose their account to then have some other entity begin using it?  Evil.  Meanwhile, Florida Democrat Congresswoman Stephanie Murray has a bill that will PROHIBIT anyone with ideas the ruling Democrats don’t like- such as belief the 2020 Presidential Election was full of fraud or in QAnon which does not sound all that far-fetched from holding any kind of elective office or work in government at any level.  Wow.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: A recent Gallup Poll shows that 89-percent of American citizens are dissatisfied with the country.  Go figure: stolen elections, fake news media, social media bans, censorship, harsh restrictions, lockdowns, and Antifa and BLM mobs running amok in the streets, who the hell wouldn’t be?  Meanwhile the head of the Anti-Defamation League wants Twitter to ban the Grand Ayatollah Khamenei for constantly tweeting he wants to kill Jews and erase Israel from the face of the planet.   Elsewhere, Russia says ‘vigorous efforts needed to extend Russia-U.S. New Start arms control treaty.’  Also, as the ‘Biden administration’ presses Russia on releasing Alexei Navalny and imprisoned protesters basically puts it red fist in ‘President Biden’s’ face and brushes the senile fool off.   Finally, former Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker labels the People’s Republic of China as the “New Evil Empire” due to their appalling human rights record.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Alleged Chi-Com spy and honeypot participant Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell says, “The FBI cleared me of any hint of conspiring with the Chi-Coms against my country.’  Bulls**t, no one has cleared you of anything.  In other political news, people are championing Fox News Channel’s chief meteorologist Janice Dean as a potential GOP candidate for the governor of New York seeing as how she is immensely popular and Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo killed both her father-and-mother-in-law by putting COVID-19-infected patients into their rest home.  Yikes.  “Killer Cuomo” had better watch out…
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: The Vatican clears retired U.S. Bishop Joseph Hart of seven abuse charges.  Hart served the church in Cheyanne, Wyoming.  Next, we learn the new iPhone can screw up pacemakers and cause heart attacks.  Love that Chi-Com technology.   Next, we learn that the TSA now has been politicized as Jennifer Kerns of All-American Radio told Newsmax TV: TSA officials are blocking Global Entry of persons who served in the former Trump administration.  WTF!   Elsewhere, in a 78-22 vote in the U.S. Senate, Anthony Blinken is confirmed as the next U.S. Secretary of State even though the Chi-Coms have dumped loads of cash- tens of millions of dollars- into his back pocket.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of State Daniel Bennett Smith stepped down from office on this date.[vi]  Also, Janet Yellen takes the oath of office which makes her the official U.S. Treasury Secretary.     In other news, 200 House Republicans vote to uphold the Hyde Amendment which prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars to fund the Pro-Death Movement.
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: In other shameful news, communist Jane Fonda is set to receive the Golden Globes Cecil B. DeMille Award.  Big whoop.  Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki- not wearing a mask and repeatedly wiping her nose with her bare hand- denies that her boss, ‘President’ Joe Biden ever labeled Donald Trump’s travel ban for COVID-19 as xenophobic or racist.  Uh, but he did, Jen!  In another incident of plagiarism, ‘President’ Joe Biden says he will ‘use the military to step up deliveries of the Chi-Vi vaccine.’  Your predecessor already set this in motion.   Also, regarding the Chi-Vi, Dr. Anthony Fauci- the highest-paid putz in the federal government- says he was disturbed by his former boss’ comments on the value of bleach and other disease-killing chemicals.  He maintains the 45th president was talking about ingesting such substances; however, if you listen to the tape, the president was discussing the therapeutic effects of such items and it’s too bad we could not find something that could do the same for the human body.    Finally, Kayleigh McEnany is set to return to Fox News Channel but now, that job offer is on hold.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: DAY SEVEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to discover what is going on across the country…well, you will all want to know this: the Fake News Media has now gone down the rabbit hole what with the Fresh Start program in which, much like George Orwell wrote in his classic book, “1984,” will rewrite ALL past news stories to remove unfavorable news about Democrats and will rehabilitate their images and history of doings.  ‘President’ Joe Biden and ‘Vice President’ Kamala Harris definitely need much rehabilitation because both put loads of minorities into prison with their racist criminal justice policies or their enforcement of those policies.   Meanwhile, far-left former Barack Hussein Obama first AG Eric Holder urges his fellow Democrats to STACK THE U.S. SUPREME COURT NOW.  And you honestly believe these people LOVE the United States of America as founded.
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: Governor Gavin Newsom of California is scrambling to reopen California as the move to recall the little POS now has more than 1.2 million signatures.  The problem for him is that very few liked him from the start nor are they in line with his harsh lockdowns and restrictions so when we hit 1.5 million signatures, the man is going to lose office like Gray Davis- another Democrat- did back in 2003 and citizens of the state liked him far more than the current bozo ruining the state.  (PS- he’s Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- that says so much).  Elsewhere, New Mexico- a state that threw in with “Pro-China Joe” Biden- is now going to feel the brunt of the ‘46th president’s’ energy policies losing thousands of jobs as the Green New Deal politics come to the fore.  Time to find ‘Republican judges’ and do to the Democratic-Socialists what they always do to Republican administrations and that is to hammer, hammer, hammer them with injunction after injunction after injunction.  We can do it so let’s do it!  Texas is beginning to do it NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday L: ‘President’ Joe Biden orders an end to publicly-funded private prisons.  Yet another XO, folks, 20 by our count.  Meanwhile, Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the Dems may advance a COVID-19 Relief Bill sans any GOP participation.  NOTE- whatever relief they give the American people, the American people will have to pay income taxes on whatever amount it is.  Elsewhere, former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii labels ‘John Brennan and Adam Schiff as domestic enemies of the United States.  Next, a federal judge hammers ‘President’ Joe Biden’s XO putting all deportations on hold for 100 days.  About flipping time, federal judges, how about an injunction to overturn the halt to the Keystone XL Pipeline.  Finally, “Big Brother Joe” Biden vows to fight systemic racism in the country, racism that he and his former boss, Barack Hussein Obama had eight flipping years to fix and didn’t.  Of course, systemic racism does not exist, why do millions of people seek to come to our country?  Because it’s a wonderful place.
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 100,032,461 confirmed cases, +445,377, 2,149,818, confirmed deaths, +13,259, and 55,239,856 confirmed recoveries, +319,710.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,604,046 confirmed cases, up 229,745 from yesterday’s reporting, 427,069 confirmed deaths, UP 3,458, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP 36,070.

  81. 2021 Tuesday O:  THE BIDEN AGENDA IS DESTROYING THE STOCK MARKET.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,937.504 DOWN 22.96 points (-0.74%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,626.07, DOWN 9.93 points (-0.73%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,849.62, DOWN 5.74 points (-0.15%).  The price of GOLD is $1,849.60 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.50 per troy ounce, -0.038 (-0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,107.20 per troy oz, -0.20 (-0.02%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.002 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,325.00 per troy oz, -21.90 (-0.93%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.17 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.30%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000031.  In other economic news, Target is giving all hourly workers a bonus of $500.  Don’t forget- you will pay taxes on this money…
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s Department of Justice ends the ‘zero tolerance’ rule for illegal aliens seeking to storm the country.   Elsewhere, after writing a BS story in the New Yorker Magazine, the company had to return the National Magazine Award.  One leftwing site after another lies, steals other people’s works, and spreads propaganda, yet they remain open while leftists pursue bloggers like us.  Meanwhile, a tornado touched down in Alabama killing one person and injuring at least 17 others.   Next, the U.S. is seriously considering forcing everyone who wants to board an airliner to take the Chi-Vi test, you know, the nasal swab for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Finally, the man given the nod to take John Robert’s place in the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump- Vermont Democrat Senator Patrick “Loose Lips” Leahy- suddenly is carted off to the hospital for an unspecified illness.  Crabs?

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was a mind-altering experience, my friends.

[iii] Not sure when we will promote the music of Van Halen but when we do, we will also present the music of Sammy Hagar so please stay tuned.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[v] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

63. 2021 Friday A: Once again, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate blocks the $2,000 relief checks for the American people. Here’s the thing that is angering the American people: the COVID-19 Relief Bill directs $174 billion to the American people and $762 billion to various other countries around the world. This is insane. What is even worse is that part of the $174 billion for the American people also includes $600 PLUS another $1,200 per illegal alien they did not get in the first stimulus.

  60. 2019 Tuesday: The 26th U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis left office after being fired by President Donald J. Trump for working against the commander-in-chief.  His replacement- Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan assumed office on this date.   Meanwhile, loser RINO Senator-elect Mitt Romney says, “Trump has not risen to the mantle of office.’  Like Mittens should know.  He folded like porn star-s overused member back in 2012.
  61. 2020 Thursday: After a two-day standoff outside the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq’s Green Zone, Iranian-backed militias withdraw back into the rat holes inside the city.  The pro-Iranian group tried to storm the embassy following devastating U.S.-led airstrikes against terrorist targets in Syria and Iraq.  Light ‘em up, boys, light ‘em up.  Meanwhile, following an airstrike by Syrian government forces in Idlib, Syria, aid workers claim the Syrians hit a school killing nine civilians and wounding loads of others.  Folks, they’re terrorists, shed no tears for terrorists.  Elsewhere, tens of thousands of Hong Kong residents take to the streets to protest Beijing’s oppressive presence and to defend their liberties from the Chi-Coms.   Finally, the strike by French railway workers now is the longest since 1968.
  62. 2021 Friday: Ever the “optimist,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says, “Trump will be dead in a few days” as relations between his rat-shit country and the United States continue to deteriorate.  Meanwhile, the Iranians chant ‘DEATH TO AMERICA’ on the one-year anniversary of the whacking of Quds Force commander General Qassim Soleimani.  We say, “NUKE THEM!”  We should nuke the scumbags because once again, they are mining the Persian Gulf as oil tankers leaving Iraq find the explosive devices floating in the sea lanes.
  63. 2021 Friday A: Once again, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate blocks the $2,000 relief checks for the American people.   Here’s the thing that is angering the American people: the COVID-19 Relief Bill directs $174 billion to the American people and $762 billion to various other countries around the world.  This is insane.  What is even worse is that part of the $174 billion for the American people also includes $600 PLUS another $1,200 per illegal alien they did not get in the first stimulus.  The time is coming- so says Chef Vladimir Gdansk- that the Second Revolution coming will resemble more the French Revolution than the American Revolution.  People are angry that government NO LONGER REPRESENTS US!
  64. 2021 Friday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 83,579,767 confirmed cases, +585,547, 1,820,923, confirmed deaths, +10,563, and 47,162,055 confirmed recoveries, +268,693.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,212,820 confirmed cases, up 302,146 from yesterday’s reporting, 349,397 confirmed deaths, UP 4,520, and 9,136,262 confirmed recoveries, UP 379,112.
  65. 2021 Friday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,307,706 confirmed cases, 25,971 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,644 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,064 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia where they have a Ku Klux Klan-lover for a governor: currently, they have 354,766 confirmed cases, 5,081 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 426,769 confirmed cases, 3,338 confirmed deaths, and 378,038 confirmed recoveries.
  66. 2021 Friday D: The E.U. and the Chi-Coms continue working on their ‘deal’ to open markets in the communist nation to European investment.   Next, the Philippines block travel from the U.S. following detection of the new strain of the Chi-Vi in the United States.   Elsewhere, the entire African Continent (26 states as of today with most of the others soon to join)- with the exception of Eritrea- enters into the massive free trade zone it had previously set up making it the largest free trade zone since the creation of the World Trade Organization.  Meanwhile, both the U.S. State Department and the people of Hong Kong demand the release of the so-called “Hong Kong 12,” wrongly imprisoned by the thugs in Beijing.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Georgia voters come out for the final day of early voting in the two U.S. Senate run-off race- 3 million people have early voted so far.  Meanwhile the U.S. Senate overrides President Trump’s veto of the NDAA- the National Defense Authorization Act, patting themselves on the back as they do so.  The president vetoed the bill because it does nothing with the Section 230 the 45th president wanted overturned.  Chef Vladimir Gdansk writes in today’s post how the BIG TECH demon baby should be strangled in the crib now before it becomes so powerful that it is running the world (with the Chi-Coms being the main managing partner behind the scenes). 
  68. 2021 Friday F: Strange things occurring in Colorado what with the discovery of human remains in a pair of suitcases as are other human remains outside Prescott, Arizona.   Elsewhere, even though it’s against the mayor’s demands, the people of Philadelphia turn out to either participate in or to watch the big Philly Mummers parade.  Labeled a ‘protest,’ left-wing liberal government can do NOTHING to stop it.  FREEDOM OF SPEECH- PARDON JULIAN ASSANGE NOW!  Next, Portland, Oregon, police label a ‘protest’ a ‘riot’ when the mob goes berserk as darkness begins to fall.  (We believe the Chi-Coms are funding all of this mob mayhem).
  69. 2021 Friday G: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions #1621 with a $401 million jackpot: 08, 24, 53, 68, 69, and Mega 07.   Out of 186,678 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,000 apiece.  Congratulations!
  70. 2022 Saturday: We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover whatever the Chi-Coms, their allies Canada, Iran, Russia, North Korea, and other s-hole countries, as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good!

ENDNOTES:

[i] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing

[ii] We promoted the music of Country Joe and the Fish beginning on Tuesday, 16-July-2013 through Friday, 26-July-2013.  This was one of the greatest bands to explode out of San Francisco, California, during the Psychedelic 1960s.  Sadly, we failed to promote the music of Country Joe McDonald’s solo discography at the time.  We hope to rectify that at a later date.

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

[iv] Little would the people of New York City know that this POS far-left, forever-stoned mayor would destroy their city and that come 2020 with the Chi-Com-manufactured pandemic out of control people would flee the dying city.  GET this scumbag out of office!

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

72. 2020 Sunday C: President Donald J. Trump refutes Fake News claims that he is going to seize government and declare martial law. We know this cannot happen because the military already said, ‘they aren’t going to get involved in the election.’ Meanwhile, the president continues trying to push a stimulus bill for the American people as lawmakers continue haggling with one another over a COVID-19, aka Kung Flu, relief bill that neither Democrats nor Republicans seemingly can pass.

  33. 1943 Monday: Concerned that the Allies were going to establish a second front somewhere in Western Europe, the Fuhrer begins making it known that troops fighting in the East would have to rely on the manpower they already have.  Thus, any future reinforcements will begin being diverted to the West.  This change in plans had been coming for some time and in 1944, it would further debilitate Axis efforts in the USSR.
  34. 1944 Wednesday: During the Battle of the Bulge, German troops surround elements of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division at the Belgium crossroads town of Bastogne.   There, the resistance put up by the Americans against overwhelming odds would throw a monkey wrench into German plans in the drive to capture all important port city Antwerp.  Elsewhere, in Manhattan, New York, future drummer, percussionist, and backing vocalist with the horn-dominated band, Blood, Sweat & Tears- Bobby Colomby- is born on this date.  He would perform with BS&T from 1967-1977.

  53. 2004 Monday: In a sobering assessment of the Iraq War, President George W.

  59. 2010 Monday: The Obama administration seeks the ability to launch raids into Pakistan deeper than they have before.  We thought President Obama was opposed to widening wars or starting new ones.  My, my, my!  Meanwhile, there is a reason for this: a report says that over the course of 2010, 700 foreign troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan to foes who hide across the border in- you guessed it- Pakistan.
  60. 2011 Tuesday: In Egypt, thousands of women protest the Cairo police for having beaten numerous female protesters in Tahir Square in Cairo.  The top U.S. Army general in Iraq- Lloyd Austin- returns from the devastated country.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military rests its case in the courts martial of Private Bradley Manning, the young soldier who handed reams of classified intel over to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

  62. 2013 Friday: For the first time since 1927, the Bakersfield High School Drillers football team won the state championship by beating Loomis-Del Oro Golden Eagles in the CIF Division I State Bowl Championship in Carson City, California.  The final score was 56-26.

  64. 2015 Sunday: At the recent Democratic Presidential Primary Debate, Senator Bernie Sanders and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton go to town on one another over the role of the U.S. military in the world.  Hillary a hawk and Bernie a Chi-Com-loving dove have different views.  Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley was there, too, but no one gave a s**t.
  65. 2016 Tuesday: Outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama bans oil drilling in both the Arctic and along the Eastern Seaboard.  Meanwhile, the World Meteorological Association says that 2016 is going to be the hottest year on record driving young climate change activists to run amok in the streets, believing the planet is going to die.  Four years later, it’s still here and doing better, no thanks to the Chi-Com Bat Flu of 2020.   Elsewhere, the Trump transition team continues requesting information from the U.S. State Department regarding its donations to environmental groups.
  66. 2017 Wednesday: Democracy Now (and other liberal groups) are wailing that the Republican-controlled Congress passes a massive tax overhaul group that is going to benefit the nation’s richest Americans and corporations.  Again, the ‘richest Americans and corporations’ provide the most jobs.  Meanwhile, as rent-a-mobs protest in the streets, the very same congress passes a budget bill that won’t provide additional aid to DREAMERS.  Oh, boohoo.   
  67. 2018 Thursday: After ‘disagreements’ with President Donald J. Trump on military strategy- namely, keeping troops in West Africa, East Africa, Afghanistan, and Syria- U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis announces his resignation effective at the end of the year.  The president would send him packing sooner…
  68. 2019 Friday: Awaiting the House Democrats to walk the impeachment papers over to the U.S. Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow GOP senators plot the upcoming impeachment strategy.  Unable to really generate honest articles of impeachment against President Trump, the Democrats have cobbled together two laughable articles of impeachment which over the course of time would become known to everyone.  The Democrats in the Senate would DEMAND WITNESSES.  Folks, the Senate hears from NO witnesses as the Senate members are the jury and the party doing the impeachment presents its case, win, or lose.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump establishes the U.S. Space Force on this date to counter Chi-Com, Russian, and Iranian threats in the war domain of outer space.

  70. 2020 Sunday A: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,760,893 confirmed cases, +634,728, 1,692,151, confirmed deaths, +8,617, and 43,244,094 confirmed recoveries, +280,463 (last week, the number was much higher so some funny business is going on here, folks).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,975,428 confirmed cases, up 346,135 from yesterday’s reporting, 320,595 confirmed deaths, UP 3,061, and 7,925,626 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,965.
  71. 2020 Sunday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,869,125 confirmed cases, 22,653 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 226,551 confirmed cases, 3,169 confirmed deaths (down from a week ago), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Georgia- currently, they have 562,479 confirmed cases, 10,383 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,106 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu received his Bat Flu vaccine today on live TV.  Elsewhere, although the world is contending with the Wuhan bat flu, economist Stephen Moore says ‘2021 should be very bright thanks to the Chi-Vi vaccine.’ Meanwhile, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams says the country ‘should be normal by later spring or early summer.’  Finally, the Moderna vaccine is out on the road in the U.S. and people could be receiving their vaccinations tomorrow.  
  72. 2020 Sunday C:  President Donald J. Trump refutes Fake News claims that he is going to seize government and declare martial law.  We know this cannot happen because the military already said, ‘they aren’t going to get involved in the election.’   Meanwhile, the president continues trying to push a stimulus bill for the American people as lawmakers continue haggling with one another over a COVID-19, aka Kung Flu, relief bill that neither Democrats nor Republicans seemingly can pass.  We begin voting them out in 2022, 2024, 2026 and on and on and on.  Meanwhile, outgoing Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard- a leader of the people- is pushing for COVID-19 relief for small businesses.  Will anyone listen?
  73. 2020 Sunday D: The Save America Bus Tour with Senator Ted Cruz at the helm pulls into Cumming, Georgia, today.  Yesterday, it was in Savannah, as the battle to keep the U.S. Senate from the communist Democrats continues.  Meanwhile, as we continue learning more dirt on that scumbag, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell and his ties to the Chi-Coms via to sleeping with an MSS agent for several years, information is beginning to come to light on another Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff.  A driving force in the fake impeachment of President Trump and his phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine’s president, we now learn that Schiff has deep ties to Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company.  Boris Pasternak of Burisma held fundraisers for Congressman Schiff as well as funneled money from George Soros’ left-wing ‘think tanks,’ Atlantic Council being one.  He also received cash from Blackrock and Franklin-Templeton Investments.  What a scumbag.
  74. 2020 Sunday E: The ‘religion of peace’ strikes again in Kabul, Afghanistan, as two car bombings kill nine people and wound another 20 citizens.  One must love Islam.  Meanwhile, U.S. troops are leaving Somalia for neighboring countries.  Elsewhere, the U.S. emplaces sanctions on Chi-Com companies involved in the phony elections in Venezuela.  Finally, in Great Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is using the communist Chinese virus to cancel Christmas and more or less declares a severe lockdown of the British people all in the name of protecting people from the Wuhan Bat Flu.  Boris has gone crazy.  
  75. 2020 Sunday F: “Tiger King” Joe Exotic is seeking a pardon from President Trump.  Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, R, is urging a pardon for Julian Assange as are many for Edward Snowden.  Meanwhile, President Trump tweets that ‘John Bolton is the stupidest man alive.’  Many of us used to believe Mr. Bolton was a good man; we now know he is little more than a worthless POS who embodies the Military-Industrial Complex and endless, endless war…  
  76. 2020 Sunday: This is where we were at last year: even though it’s Sunday, the Chi-Coms and their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and in the D
