[ii]
  57. 2020 Thursday: Following last night’s violent mob riots in Louisville, Kentucky, over the grand jury’s findings on the Breonna Taylor death, two police officers were shot.  Today, the interim police chief said both are ‘doing well’ and that a suspect- Lorenzo Johnson- is in custody.  Next, Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody is calling for an FBI investigation into neo-lib New York billionaire and failed presidential primary candidate Michael Bloomberg for paying off the fines and other debts of BLACK and BROWN Florida felons with the payback that they- allegedly- will vote DEMOCRAT on November 3.  Bloomberg is breaking all kinds of election law and we look forward to seeing the angry imp go to federal prison.  
  58. 2020 Thursday A: Speaking of campaigning, President Donald J. Trump will be in North Carolina and Florida today while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is somewhere incognito and his running mate, Kooky Kamala Harris is nowhere to be found.   Speaking of “Gropin’ Joe,” Rush Limbaugh predicts today that the former vice president will be a no-show at next Tuesday night’s presidential debate and that the campaign will use ‘he was exposed to someone with the Beijing Bat Flu and must quarantine.’  We shall see.
  59. 2020 Thursday B: Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the fake news media is beginning to sweat bullets demanding if his ‘low key strategy’ for winning the presidential election is really what he needs to be doing.  They also are questioning Kooky Kamala for being unavailable to the news media.  Where is she?  Where is he?  Is this growing terror among liberal Democrats the reason WHY the fake news media is demanding to know if ‘there will be a peaceful transition of power in January 2021?’  They act as though the president is a goner which is farthest from the truth.  The man is going to SMOKE them, and the GOP is going to crush the Beijing-backed Democratic Party.

Trump, and First Lady Melania Trump pay their respects to deceased U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the steps of the court as she lies in repose for the second day.  Assembled throngs of protesters scream and yell all manner of insults at the pair, which is a shame but folks, like water runs off the backs of ducks, so, too, do insults leveled at the president and first lady.  Shame on you scumbags.  
  61. 2020 Thursday D: Last week, there were 870,000 new jobless claims[iii] which reflects the damage being done to the foodservice and hospitality industries as well as to the airlines.  Most of the damage is being purposefully caused by states where Democrats run amok.  Let us change that on November 3 in the places in which, we, the American people can.  Speaking of the election, today, a letter from 500+ former U.S. military and cabinet officials says that “Trump is unfit to serve as commander-in-chief” and that [senile old] Joe Biden would be a fine commander-in-chief due to his principles and morality.  Please- the man and hus son abused his office to reap vast amounts of wealth from the Chi-Coms and the Ukrainians.  The guy and his family should be nowhere near the White House or the levers of power.

  66. 2020 Thursday I:  Word came out today that three members of the Metro North NYC Public Transit employees- two foremen and one worker- are in trouble for having constructed a comprehensive mancave underneath Grand Central Station.  The ‘clubhouse’ had couches, television sets, refrigerators, all the things guys on the job require for braving boring jobs.  We shall see what happens to them.  Elsewhere, tomorrow, the casket holding Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body will lie in state in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol, the first woman to be so honored and the final day of the three-day celebration of the high court’s second female justice.
  67. 2020 Thursday J: FREE CHINA- aka Taiwan- reports that for three days in a row, Chi-Com surveillance planes have attempted to penetrate the Republic of China’s airspace but that the Taiwanese drove them off.  It is clear the communist Chinese are increasing pressure on their freedom-loving cousins.  Beat ‘em back, boys!  Meanwhile, we learn that Putin critic Alexei Navalny, while being treated for Novichok poisoning in Berlin, had his bank accounts and home seized by Putin’s thugs.  Who didn’t see that coming?
  68. 2020 Thursday K: Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel show that “The Bail Project,” a leftist group designed to spring arrested rioters across the country is funded by some of the wealthiest people in America.  An operative named Holly Zoller funded the U-Haul truck filled with riot gear for the Louisville rioters.  These people need to go to prison.  Now.  They brag on their site (https://bailproject.org/) that as of this evening, they have paid the bail of more than 12,096 rioters and thugs.

Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 15,308 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  76. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 183- by our count- for the extremely popular ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris- to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and to have NOTHING about it.  It is also her 90th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Instead, she, like her boss, feeble Joe Biden, are calling mounted Border Patrol officers RACISTS for doing their jobs in trying to repel the INVASION going on down there.  Folks, we are surprised the Border Patrol is gearing up with the National Guard and putting in 50-caliber MG emplacements and artillery pits and blowing the vermin flooding across the border to Kingdom Come.  How much more are they expected to suffer?  Meanwhile, since the U.S. Supreme Court has ordered the Biden regime to reinstate the “Remain in Mexico Policy,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the regime to get a deadline as to when the policy will be reinstated.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The disingenuous U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says there are ‘no more’ HAITIAN INVADERS under the Del Rio, Texas, overpass.  That means they have been dumped across the country and into RED STATE areas.  We cannot permit this outrageous activity to continue, and we must resist all pushes by the Biden regime to dump illegal aliens among us.  Still, no matter what Secretary Mayorkas says, news sources claim there are still at least 4,000 HAITIAN INVADERS remaining in Bidenville with hundreds more arriving every day.   Meanwhile, after a visit to the southern border yesterday by political hack and human pig, Reverend Al Sharpton- a visit met with heckling, derision, insults, but sadly, no overripe tomato smack dab in the kisser- the old racist lit into the Biden regime for mistreating his peeps, the HAITIAN INVADERS.
  78. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– After Australia joined with the United Kingdom and the United States to stab France in the back, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he is ‘reaching out to France to mend fences.’  Wow.  What a guy.  What he should be doing is reconciling with the Australian people as increasing clashes over the dictatorial COVID-19 lockdowns are sending regular Australians into the streets to do battle with the Taliban-like regime.  Meanwhile, as the U.S. continues its abandonment of long-time ally, Saudi Arabia, Houthi rebels are steaming toward the capital city of Sana’a as well as to the nation’s oilfields.  Time to ally with Israel, Saudis.   
  79. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The United Kingdom is facing fewer goods with higher prices as the loss of tens of thousands of truck drivers is also driving up fuel costs.  This is not good for the British people.  The government is more concerned with forcing its citizens to get vaccinated for the BIG C-19, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, rather than working on behalf of their citizens.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the Central Intelligence Agency has had to pull its Vienna station chief due to a recent ‘Havana Syndrome’ attack.  (Note- we need to figure this one out and begin responding in kind).
  80. 2021 Friday J: Health and Medical Alerts– Today we learned that “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has found a way to circumvent Joe Biden’s edict on slashing the delivery of monoclonal antibodies to the Sunshine State in the name of ‘equity.’  The governor has secured his own supply.  Elsewhere- and this is truly shocking- Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says his ‘only regret about funding the Wuhan Institute of Virology” (to ‘study’ the COVID-19 virus) ‘is the backlash from doing it.’
  81. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Dictator Joe Biden is pushing on ALL eligible Americans to rush out and undergo a THIRD COVID-19 SHOT, i.e., the BOOSTER SHOT.  The dictator is growing angrier by the day and is warning ALL Americans to do this ASAP or face his wrath.  (Note- Joe, almost all of the chef-bloggers here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have not gotten the first shot and the more we learn about what it’s in this crap, the less inclined we are to go and get it.  Talk about the “Mark of the Beast,” this is crazy).  Likewise, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has blown off the panel of experts at the Food and Drug Administration that said Chi-Vi boosters were not necessary and is demanding ALL frontline workers to rush out and get the third jab.  Talk about a glorious example of the COVID-19 money-go-round and how drug makers and politicians are profiting off this crap.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, however, continues to wage war with the regime by calling out both Joe Biden and Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci accusing them of ‘ignoring the science of natural immunity.’  Finally, Joe Biden ordered today that ALL federal government contractors must undergo vaccination with the Chi-Com virus vaccine no later than December 08.

  86. 2021 Friday P: 2020 Election Audit– Arizona today presented the findings of the 2020 Election Audit and President Donald J. Trump says that the FAKE NEWS already is spinning the findings as proof that Joe Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election.   The findings show that large numbers of anomalies occurred in the 2020 Presidential and General Elections that require answers.  Thus, the Arizona Senate has sent the full report to state Attorney General Mark Brnovich in the hope that this RINO renegade will do something about it.
  87. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s outrage continues to grow over what he saw occurring on the U.S.-Mexico border what with mounted U.S. Border Patrol agents trying to corral thousands of fleeing HAITIAN INVADERS and has vowed that he is going to ‘make them pay.’  NOT the HAITIAN INVADERS but the U.S. Border Patrol agents.  Wow.  WTF is going on in our country.  Not only did Biden speak out on incident, BUT DHS Secretary Alejandro ALSO Mayorkas blamed the actions of the Border Patrol on- wait for it- systemic racism.  However, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, blasted Mayorkas’ comments as both ‘asinine’ and ‘arrogant.’
  88. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– As more and more media folks continue asking some problematic questions regarding Hunter Biden’s art ‘deals,’ the Biden regime continues clamping down on NOT answering these particularly important questions.  Next, Joe Biden concedes budget talks have hit a roadblock and admits that the $3.5 trillion infrastructure and the budget reconciliation bill may ‘take a while.’
  89. : Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo says that the ‘U.S. getting into the chip-manufacturing business will help alleviate the shortage in this and in other friendly countries.’  Secretary Raimondo, you had better spend more time figuring how to get container ships into the L.A. and Long Beach, California, ports.  The vessels are backing up which means the American people are going to be suffering similar shortages of products as are the beleaguered Brits.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden won’t assert executive privilege when it comes to protecting court documents associated with President Donald J. Trump.
  90. 2021 Friday T: Political News I– Fox News has once again brought shame upon itself with the banning of “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani as well as his son Andrew, AND former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik from appearing on the network.  Wow.  Talk about sliding over to the Dark Side, folks- wow.  Meanwhile, after the Democrats in the House passed their bill that will allow women to terminate the life of their babies at all stages of development and even after birth, Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, began heckling the jubilant Dems as they spoke with the press.  Frozen-faced Debbie Dingell, DS-MI 12th congressional district took offense and the two began shouting at one another.  The gist of the conversation was ‘do something about the border instead of murdering babies in the womb.’
  91. 2021 Friday U: U.S. House of Representatives News I– The U.S. House of Representatives voted 420-9 to provide $1 billion to Israel with which to beef up its Iron Dome missile defense system.  Here the names of those who opposed giving money to Israel with which to defend its people from terrorist attacks: Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district; Rep. André Carson, DS-IN 7th congressional district; Rep. Raúl Grijalva, DS-AZ 3rd congressional district; Rep. Marie Newman, DS-IL 3rd congressional district, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rep. Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MN 13th congressional district.  Two other Democrats- both lacking the balls to commit themselves to voting against the world’s sole Jewish state- were Rep. Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, and the notorious Rep. Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, voted ‘present.’  One Republican joined the ranks of “NO” votes- Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, voted against the funding because of his opposition to foreign aid of any kind.  One final Republican- Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-AZ 8th congressional district- is at home awaiting surgery to remove her gallbladder.  The Dems who voted against supporting Israel (or who lacked balls to vote NO) are the usual, far-left, anti-American, anti-Semitic, riffraff.
  92. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– The Pentagon announced today that it knows the identity of the ‘ISIS-K bomber who carried out the bombing at the Hamid Karzai International Airport last month killing 13 U.S. servicemembers outright and wounding God knows how many others.  Uh, we hate to say this but Mr. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark A. (Asshole) Milley, you said this LAST time and you murdered a family of 10, the patriarch of which was an ally of the United States.  Dude, just STFU.
  93. 2021 Friday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Baltimore, Maryland, has reached a deplorable statistic today what with the arrival at 250 homicides for the year so far.  Wow.   Next, we learned today that the mass shooter at the Kroger’s store in Collierville, Tennessee, was a third-party vendor, 29-year-old UK Thang.  He shot one person dead, wounded 14 others, and then turned the gun on himself when law enforcement was closing in on his POS ass.   Elsewhere, former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin- convicted of killing dope head George Floyd last year- is seeking to overturn his unfair conviction.
  94. 2021 Friday X: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Even though Pope Francis has begged U.S. Catholic leaders NOT to go all out against Pro-Death politicians, San Francisco archbishop of the Archdiocese of San Francisco- Salvatore J. Cordileone continues blasting Pro-Death advocate U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, one of the strongest voices in the United States for the murder of the unborn.  This woman is going to burn in hell.
  95. 2021 Friday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1697 what with a $20 million jackpot on the line: 17, 21, 27, 43, 56, and Mega 15.  Out of 55,802 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $3,686.  In Washington state, FOUR people had FOUR numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $500 apiece.
  96. 2022 Saturday: Observation of the Day– Yesterday, we began discussing the disaster befalling our country thanks to “Gropin’ Joe” Biden’s open border policy.  As you know, our blog is located in Kern County, California, and we have loads of illegal aliens here, more than we want or can handle.  Whenever we go to the store, we have to go in groups to beat them out of the way lest they attack, assault, or rob us.  At our eatery downtown, we have a security guard at both the front and backdoors to prevent them from entering our establishment and panhandling.  No one wants them, no one asked them to come, and whatever happens to them is of no concern to us.  Here is what illegal aliens do: first, they cut down the lack of affordable housing because Sacramento, Catholic Charities, and Democratic Party operatives scoop up rental houses and apartments so as to house these invaders.  All the while, more and more homeless Americans are living on the street.  Second, food prices are UP thanks to food banks being depleted, less food to go around, needy Americans go under-or-unfed while illegals get fat, plump, and listless.  Third, since we must educate all kids, education scores have dropped precipitously thanks to classrooms being overloaded with illegal alien brats who should be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Fourth, crime rates go up, robberies, rapes, assaults, kidnappings, drunken driving accidents and deaths, homicides, all of them go up.  Americans do not wish to go out at night because of the illegal alien criminals roaming the streets.  We close early so we can guard our homes at night because the illegals are all over the place, breaking in, jacking cars, stealing costly and irreplaceable catalytic converters.  We must regain control of our border and we must begin deporting ALL of this human fecal matter NOW.  Let me know what you think- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0962 a 24” x 36” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Deep Purple.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick returned on June 27, 1990, with “Busted.”  The album attempted to recreate the success of the previous offering, “Lap of Luxury,” but failed in that endeavor.  Still, Epic Records could have tossed in the towel and gotten behind let’s say, ‘a Robin Zander’ solo career but thankfully did not go down that road as other record labels have with other acts.  One of the most notable of these sell-outs is Three Dog Night booting out its quartet of musicians so the three vocalists could rake in more bucks via using backup musicians which signaled the downhill slide for them.  Likewise, the record label of Jo Jo Gunne after four albums told vocalist Jay Ferguson to boot out his other three band members and to then embark on a solo career.  Good as it was, it was not ‘The Gunne.’  We have the same quartet of veteran musicians on this album- Nielsen, Zander, Carlos, and Petersson joined by some musical guests.  We hope you will look for this album as it is a worthy addition to your collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music.  Enjoy.

[i] We are not sure when we will promote the music of Oakland’s Tower of Power, but you can be sure that we will do so when we begin promoting the music of funk-rock, horn-powered bands.  However, when we do, we suspect we will do the music of Chicago, Loading Zone, and Blood, Sweat & Tears, so please stick around and see what happens.

[ii] This would indeed become a massive disaster for the Democrats, but we could think of no one better than to have fecal matter all over their puckered-up faces.

[iii] It’s important to note, however, that the national unemployment rate has dropped to 12.6 million Americans out of work.  Signs are things are recovering.  We also learned that new home sales are the highest in 14 years.

Rush Limbaugh foretold of what the Dems have been working hard at accomplishing since his death: nullifying elections in the United States.

Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!

  74. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,150,151 confirmed cases, +480,596, 4,671,400 confirmed deaths, +8,373 and 203,826,456 confirmed recoveries, +454,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,432,847 confirmed cases, UP 144,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 684,572 confirmed deaths, UP 2,231,[vi] and 32,244,493 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,709.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 366,118 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 37,960 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[ix]

[xiii]        
  79. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.391 per gallon, $3.084 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.876 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Delaware: $2.998.  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- Liechtenstein: $6.865 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,764,701,405,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  80. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, has a new bill with which to deny U.S. recognition of the Taliban ‘government’ in Afghanistan.  His GOP colleagues have sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken demanding the U.S. State Department slap a designation of ‘foreign terror group’ atop the Taliban which they are.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban 2.0 is the same terror group it has always been.’
  81. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 174 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle down along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 81 since her singular visit anywhere in the vicinity of the border.  What a disaster.  
  82. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korean continues demonstrating that they’re ‘still with us’ by test-firing cruise missiles into waters near Japan and South Korea.  When President Donald J. Trump was in office, relations between the so-called ‘hermit kingdom’ and the United States were relatively cordial whereas now, the North Koreans are ramping up their activities.
  83. 2021 Wednesday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The U.S. Department of Defense and Health and the Department of Human Services is planning on buying 1.4 million doses of Regeneron.  In other (BOGUS) news we heard today, ‘immigrants (i.e., ILLEGAL) will reportedly have to show ‘proof of Chi-Vi vaccination before swarming across the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Sure, right- how is this going to work?  Next, as the Biden regime continues pushing the idea of Chi-Vi booster shots atop 2-3 immunizations for the Wuhan Virus, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that MORE info regarding the need for such ‘boosters’ must be handed over by the Biden regime’s leaders.
  84. 2021 Wednesday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-And Authoritarianism News– As demands from the illegitimate regime in the White House grow for everyone to get vaccinated with the Chi-Vi vaccines, calls for ‘religious exemptions’ are on the increase.  We suspect that the Christian Scientist and Jehovah’s Witnesses’ churches are going to increase membership.
  85. 2021 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.77 (2) AstraZeneca $56.45 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.42 (4) BioNTech $355.25 (5) Moderna $434.46.  Follow the money, folks, follow the money.  All this talk of booster shots on top of the vaccines is crazy what with more and more reports about problems caused by the vaccines continue to proliferate.  IF you seek the truth, you must watch One America News and Newsmax.  The vaccines are causing far more problems than are reported in the mainstream media, which is not right, especially when European nations now are backing away from any discussion of booster shots.  The only reason the talk of booster shots is intensifying is because the Deep State and the Democrats are getting rich off them.  Look at that pig, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci- this guy is growing wealthy off the suffering of the American people.
  86. 2021 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.87 (2) General Dynamics: $198.48 (3) Boeing: $214.22 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.07 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $355.74.  This is how the Deep State and elected members of Congress grow rich, investing in companies in which they send billions of dollars.  This is not only illegal but highly immoral.
  87. 2021 Wednesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.01 (3) Honeywell: $221.69 (4) 3M: $184.19 (5) Teijen: $1,646.00.  These stocks are going to take off like rockets as the Deep State and elected members of Congress- and their staffers- continue investing in these firms either through themselves or via straw persons such as, uh, well, like Hunter Biden.
  88. 2021 Wednesday N: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $110.81 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.88 (3) Maple Leaf Foods Inc./Tofurkey: $27.11.  Like it or not, this is the next push as the Green New Deal continues becoming a part of our lives whether we want it to be or we don’t.  All one need do is to watch the movie, “Soylent Green” starring Edward G. Robinson and Charlton Heston.  Popular culture has a way of becoming reality if one lives long enough.
  89. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden- ever a man of science- says that ‘human activity is the root cause of extreme weather.’  Next, Joe Biden has demanded that Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, come to the White House so he can apply pressure on them to vote for his bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’
  90. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new McLaughlin poll says that ‘Joe Biden’s approval numbers have cratered, the American people are concerned, and that NO one likes “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- my colleagues in California tell me that Kamala Harris is detested by almost everyone in the state and the only good thing about her serving in the regime is that it gets her out of their state.  Chef Itzi).
  91. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– It would appear the Biden regime is tossing Saudi Arabia to the wolves what with the withdrawal of its top anti-missile defense systems in the country.  What the hell is going on here?  In other regime-related news, one of the regime’s favorites and purported candidate for U.S. ambassador to Ukraine- Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman- says if ‘what we hear about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, he must go.’  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Both of these men are absolute disgraces. [xvii].  Next, the U.S. Army says that soldiers refusing to get the ‘VID vaccinations may be forced out of the Army with less-than-honorable discharges.’  Yet, the U.S. Postal Service and elected members of Congress and their staffers do NOT have to undergo vaccination.  WTF!
  92. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– Something very strange occurred today when the Biden regime trotted out an enfeebled old Joe Biden to hold a Zoom conference with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson of England in which, the three leaders announced a new triumvirate of sorts with which to help the Aussies obtain nuclear-powered submarines.  Although the Chi-Coms were not mentioned, they acted as though this new alignment of the BIG THREE nations would counter Beijing’s ambitions in the region.  Most observers, however, believe the Brits and the Aussies came to senile Joe Biden’s aid so as to deflect all the negative press coverage it has been getting.  Even more embarrassing is that slobbering Joe could not even pull the name of the Australian leader out of his crumbling mind.  This was embarrassing and it also demonstrated that both Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison are in the tank for the Biden regime.  This is disgraceful and besides- we also believe the three countries are in the tank with the Chi-Coms, sort of a fait accompli.
  93. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Pope Francis- ever a creature of the left- says that ‘yes, abortion is murder but urges U.S. Roman Catholic bishops NOT to be political by denying so-called ‘Catholic politicians’ Holy Communion.  Folks, is the Pope on the Pro-Death money-go-round, too?  Like BIG PHARMA/vaccine manufacturers, Planned Parenthood and other infanticide-promoting organizations bestow BILLIONS of dollars upon left-wing and unscrupulous politicians and others.  It is akin to one selling their soul to Satan.
  94. 2021 Wednesday T: Moron News I– After little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez attended the $30,000 per plate Met Gala wearing a donated $35,000 designer dress with ‘tax the rich’ stenciled on the back of it, conservative groups are demanding an ethics investigation into perhaps the stupidest member of the U.S. House of Representatives which is indeed saying a lot.  We doubt any ethics investigation will go anywhere.  Look at Ilhan Omar, that woman married her brother to defraud U.S. immigration authorities and she is doing A-Okay.
  95. 2021 Wednesday U: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3595 what with a $17 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 07, 28, 45, and Mega 08.  Out of 108,351 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,854 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Dorose Liquor in Chatsworth, CA 91311 and (2) 7-Eleven in Vacaville, CA 95688. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #885 with a jackpot of $432 million up for grabs: 01, 04, 18, 46, 62, and Power 25.  Out of 93,905 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for $2,581,768.  The winning ticket was sold at the General Store in Compton, California 90222.
  96. 2021 Wednesday V: The Wrap-Up– As someone who lives in Hawaii, I do not have an opinion on the recall election in California.  However, my colleagues living there say that it may have been a good thing if the Republican National Committee had dumped millions of dollars in the state to wage 24/7 ads blasting what they say is the ‘worst governor in the nation.’  Instead, it became a personality battle between Larry Elder and Governor Gavin Newsom, a battle that could not be won no matter how likable Mr. Elder is and how bad Governor Newsom is.  This is the Democrat Party’s secret weapon- Republican ambivalence.  They look at California and say, “We can’t win there,” and thus they send no money to help turn the tide.  The Republicans say, ‘move forward, we will return next year.’  No, GOP, you won’t.  The numbers of illegals flooding the state and the corruption surrounding the election system there is going to prevent that from occurring just as it will help empower Democrats to win the remaining few House seats currently held by Republicans.  You had your chance, and you blew it, all because the GOP itself is corrupt and unwilling to fight fire with fire.  My colleagues said the proof of election fraud is in the pudding: in less than an hour after the polls closed, the results were in. Amazing how that happens, and Governor Newsom won by Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro numbers.  California is lost forever.
  97. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day- Friends, we wish that Rush Limbaugh were still with us because he did predict that the Dems would discover a way by which, they could make elections meaningless and boy was he right.  They have tried to topple our system of elections through corrupting them just as they have by flooding the country with loads of illegal aliens.  The tricky thing about the illegal aliens is that many of them still cling to Christianity, a religion the Democrats despise and detest.  They also want them to get abortions- plenty of them- something your average illegal does not seek because of love of children.  Add to that the fact that the leftists are blatant socialists and have mobs of storm-troopers in the street and one can understand WHY the illegals are drifting more and more to the right and are eagerly registering as Republicans even though- technically- if we abide by the law- they cannot.  However, if it’s good enough for the Dems then it’s good enough for us.  I think it’s going to be  good election cycle.  The question is, can we maintain the wins or will we need to outlaw the Democratic Party?  I say, ‘OUTLAW THEM.’  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0953 a 7” x 5” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Lone Rose.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On October 08, 1978, Cheap Trick released their first live album, “Live at Budokan.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[ii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.

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

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

[xvii] IF the charges against Gen.

Milley, says that ‘his calls to his Chi-Com ‘counterpart’ (we believe, MASTER) were designed to prevent conflict between the Chi-Coms and the U.S.  Folks, we believe that Milley is a creature of Beijing.  This is definitely NOT good.

  56. 2016 Tuesday: Following news that her health is not all that good, Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton promises to release additional medical records so the public can learn about her various conditions.  Meanwhile, new video is released from a Trump rally in North Carolina that shows a Trump supporter sucker-punching a young leftist protester smack dab in the chops as security leads the little wimp out of the arena.  Elsewhere, former British Prime Minister David Cameron steps down from Parliament.
  57. 2017 Wednesday: In the aftermath of outgoing Hurricane Irma, first responders in Hollywood, Florida, try to rescue senior citizens trapped in a rest home sans electricity and air conditioning with at least 11 dead already.  WTF!  Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says that after the Myanmar military has cracked down on its Rohingya Muslims that 370,000 have fled to Bangladesh.  He calls this ‘catastrophic.’  Myanmar doesn’t think so.
  58. 2018 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump dismissed the finding of public health experts who estimated that nearly 3,000 people had died in Puerto Rico from the effects of Hurricane Maria.  The death toll was nowhere near what his enemies proclaimed it to be.  Meanwhile, former UK Prime Minister and now head of the Global Extremist Monitor Tony Blair reports that in ‘2017, 121 Islamic extremist groups took the lives of at least 84,000 people around the world.’  Again, got to love the so-called ‘religion of peace.’  When is Islam going to undergo a reformation?  Finally, do-gooders in Spain vote to exhume the body of the ‘savior of Spain’ Generalissimo “El Caudillo” Francisco Franco from the Valley of the Fallen.  The man saved that country from communism, people.  Leave him where he lies.
  59. 2019 Friday: Rock star Eddie Money lost his battle with cancer on this date and died in Los Angeles, California, at age 70.   Elsewhere, for her part in the college admissions scandal, actress Felicity Huffman receives a sentence of 14 days in the clink.

  62. 2020 Sunday B: Following the shootings of two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies in Compton, California, a 31-year-old female and a recent graduate of the academy, a 24-year-old male while they sat in their patrol car, law enforcement in the city put out a $100,000 reward leading to the arrest of the POS shooter who strolled up to their car and shot each in the head.  At the time of this publishing, both are in critical condition fighting for their lives.   Meanwhile, as Tropical Storm Sally roils off the west coast of Florida, expected to make landfall tomorrow along the Mississippi-Louisiana coastline, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards declares a state of emergency.  Speaking of storms, Hurricane Paulette in the Atlantic Ocean is making landfall in Bermuda as we speak. 
  63. 2020 Sunday C: Failed Democratic candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael “Peewee” Bloomberg announces he is going to dump $100,000,000 into Florida to help win it for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Wow, how do we apply for some of those greenbacks?  Ah, well, polls show that Biden-Harris lead Trump-Pence across the nation by a comfortable margin of 51%-46%.  Speaking of President Trump, he is blitzing Nevada today meeting with all sorts of groups and speaking before large groups of people.  Still, Dems claim he is going to lose.   Elsewhere, House Homeland Security Committee Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-LA, says he sent a subpoena to acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf demanding he appear before the committee to answer questions on September 17.  Acting Secretary Wolf says he ‘will be happy to do so but first, he has to undergo the confirmation process so he can sit before them as the DHS director.
  64. 2020 Sunday D: The Chi-Coms are sniveling and whining that ‘President Trump is the fomenter of regional unrest in Asia.’  Wah, wah, wah, no wonder the Chinese Communist Party is supporting the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and Willie Brown’s ‘mattress,’ Sen. Kamala Harris.  The Chi-Coms are supporting Biden, the Russians are supporting Biden, the Iranians are supporting Biden, the Cubans are supporting Biden, hell, every country that hates the United States is supporting “Pro-China Joe” Biden- what does that tell you?  Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says ‘legislation is required’ to negotiate a free-trade deal with the European Union whom the PM says is threatening to blockade the Irish Sea.  WTF?  Finally, the western United States continues burning, homes are destroyed, people are dying all because the three governors of California, Oregon, and Washington won’t do proper forestry management.  Read tomorrow’s post in which, Chef Gervais says it’s because their retirement programs for public employees suck up approximately 90% of each state’s budget so it’s burn baby burn.  
  65. 2020 Sunday E: Today is the first Sunday of the NFL’s 101st season.  Here are the current scores: (1) Seattle Seahawks 38, Atlanta Falcons 25.  (2) Buffalo Bills 27, New York Jets 17.  (3) Chicago Bears 27, Detroit Lions 23.  (4) New England Patriots 21, Miami Dolphins 11.  (5) Washington REDSKINS 27, Philadelphia Eagles 17.  (6) Baltimore Ravens 38, Cleveland Browns 6.  (7) Green Bay Packers 43, Minnesota Vikings 34.  (8) Jacksonville Jaguars 27, Indianapolis Colts 20.   (9) New Orleans Saints 34, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23 (we predict a few more losses for the Bucs and Brady and Gronk will sign one day contracts with the New England Patriots so they can retire in Patriot uniforms).  (10) San Diego Chargers 16, Cincinnati Bengals 13.  (11) Arizona Cardinals 24, San Francisco 49ers 20.  (12) Oakland Raiders 34, Carolina Panthers 31.  Sunday Night Football: (13) Los Angeles Rams 20, Dallas Cowboys 17.

[x]   
  67. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 361,034 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 43,044 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  68. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,486,798 confirmed cases, 67,232 confirmed deaths, and 2,349,983 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,463,780 confirmed cases, 48,772 confirmed deaths, and 2,387,556 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 72,352 confirmed cases, 660 confirmed deaths, and 71,692 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 600,427 confirmed cases, 6,991 confirmed deaths, and 256,563 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Diamond Princess Ship: they have 46 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 46 confirmed recoveries.[xi]

[xvi]        
  71. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $2.993 in Florida, $4.057 in Hawaii, and $3.879 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Connecticut: $3.190.  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- New Zealand: $6.559 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,757,077,774,031 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Kingdom, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position. 
  72. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Every day it becomes more and more depressing as to what is occurring along the U.S.-Mexico border as well as around the country where the Biden regime dumps illegal aliens and unvetted refugees but still, we must soldier onward.  Today is Day No. 172 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s part-time mattress, to be in charge of the calamity befalling the nation as well as her 79th day since her ONLY trip to the region to ‘view the problem.’ “Kooky,” get your flat ass down there and do your flipping job.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  73. 2020 Monday G: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Six Los Angeles Police Department officers- the first of many expected to come- have filed suit against the city of Los Angeles over the imposition of China virus vaccines onto ALL citywide workers.  Good for you- stand strong and don’t give up.  Elsewhere, former New Jersey Governor Chris “Lard Lad” Christie says that ‘Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates will harden criticism of the unvaccinated.’  Go screw yourself, tubby.   However, a new Trafalgar poll shows a large percentage of the American people view Joe Biden’s illegal vaccine mandates as being ‘unconstitutional’ which they are.  Nothing Joe can or would do will change this.  They are ILLEGAL (as is the Biden regime).  Add to that the fact that President Donald J. Trump pointed out that during ‘his time in office, Democrats disparaged the vaccines’ so WTF Joe?
  74. 2021 Monday H: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.58 (2) AstraZeneca $55.96 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.93 (4) BioNTech $327.14 (5) Moderna $419.72.  As the push for more and more vaccine mandates increases, the enlightened reader must pay close attention to the stock prizes of the BIG PHARMA vaccine manufacturers so as to comprehend the reasons behind the push.  Democrats in Congress direct U.S. taxpayer dollars to these companies who then crank out billions of vaccines from which, the elected leaders and Deep State apparatchiks reap loads of money in the form of campaign donations, bribes, and kickbacks.  This is an evil system.  The same thing occurs for the military stocks outlined below.
  75. 2021 Monday I: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.64 (2) General Dynamics: $104.53 (3) Boeing: $214.49 (4) Lockheed Martin: $346.40 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $353.72.  Follow the money.  Follow the stocks in which the nomenklatura invests the BIG BUCKS.
  76. 2021 Monday J: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.25 (2) DuPont: $70.67 (3) Honeywell: $223.60 (4) 3M: $185.23 (5) Teijen: $1,676.00.  Remember when Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci said ‘we may have to wear goggles atop 2-3 masks?’  Well, this is why, these BIG PPE manufacturing companies sell stock, too, in which, the Deep State and elected leaders invest.  It’s almost like sleeping with one’s sister, it’s not right, it’s immoral, yet it happens all too frequently.  This must stop.
  77. 2021 Monday K: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.94 (2) Maple Leaf Foods, Inc./Tofurkey: $21.33.  The next big push is artificial meat, it’s BIG on the Green New Deal agenda.  They want to eradicate factory farming of livestock and replace it with “Soylent Green”-type FAKE MEAT.  It’s one thing to eat tofu and quite another to eat something of which, NO one knows what the hell is in it.  If you know nothing about “Soylent Green,” look it up.
  78. 2021 Monday L: Joe Biden News I– Mentally dead Joe Biden is being trolled after a video of him with a bunch of pro-Donald J. Trump school-aged kids goes viral. Even children know this POS dictator is illegitimate.  Biden took a photo with a group of kids who were all wearing MAGA hats and pro-Trump gear which the dictator seemed not to notice.  Our view is that IF this man is as absent as he seems, he must leave office NOW.  NOW!
  79. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Wherever doddering old Joe Biden stumbles- Idaho and California to survey ‘fire damage’- he attracts crowds but not the ones you may think.  These crowds are opposed to him, his policies, and the stinking mess he has caused in eight short months.  Average, ordinary, patriotic Americans let their ire be felt in respectful ways while the second week in a row, the chorus of “F**K JOE BIDEN” continues to grow at more and more college and university sports stadiums.  The American people have been pushed as far as they can go and the message is clear to everyone with half a brain or more: it is time for YOU to go, Joe.  Resign NOW.
  80. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken is testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee.  He will be answering questions on WHY his boss- slobbering Joe Biden- caused such devastation and destruction across that country.  The Republican National Committee is calling for the immediate termination of Secretary “Bullshit” Blinken over him being the face of the disgrace of the fetid, stinking mess of Afghanistan.   Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris says the ‘U.S. government must protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated.’  Uh, okay, then EVERY member of Congress and their staffers must get vaccinated with this questionable vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU.
  81. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– A new book by Ben Schreckinger- former business associate of the Biden mob family- “The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power”- demonstrates how the Biden crime family profited from Joe’s time in political office.  Wow.
  82. 2021 Monday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Early today, a California man from Oceanside, California- 44-year-old Donald Craighead- was arrested outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters after Capitol Hill police officers noticed he had a machete and a bayonet in his nearby vehicle.  Hmmm, sounds like another Cesar Sayoc-type guy, another ‘Capitol Hill pipe bomber,’ some loser the Dems set up to commit some non-crime with which they can tar and feather their GOP opponents and President Donald J. Trump.  We await further information.
  83. 2021 Monday Q: Political News I– Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, asks an especially important question: Were the mistakes the Biden regime committed in Afghanistan ‘intentional?’  (Note- we believe so, we believe the deal was to let the country implode as quickly as possible while leaving tens of billions of dollars of military and security equipment behind for the Taliban and other enemies such as communist China, Russia, and Iran to exploit.  We think that money would flow back to the Biden crime family in circuitous routes for handing over all this U.S. military technology.  Something similar occurred back in the early days of the Bush #43 regime when the Chi-Coms forced down one of our spy planes on Hainan Island and again when great pretender Barack Hussein Obama took office when the Iranians managed to bring down one of our drones.  Obama never demanded it back thus the Iranians and their allies gleaned U.S. military secrets.  This also occurred under the Clinton presidency when he allowed the Chi-Coms to gain U.S. missile secrets.  Amazing how all of these presidents think nothing of selling out the country they were elected to lead and how coincidentally, they achieve massive amounts of wealth.  Classic money-go-round with being a traitor thrown in for good measure).
  84. 2021 Monday R: Political News II– The Democrats continue pushing the finalization of the largest tax increase on the American people in U.S. history with Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, being the lone holdout against the criminal $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  Senator Manchin is taking heat from his fellow Democrats including incoming from dingbat Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, she with the BIG ECONOMIC DEGREE from Boston University.  Senator Manchin waves the dumb bitch off the way a cow’s tail waves flies away from its ass.  Stand strong, Senator Manchin, stand strong.
  85. 2021 Monday S: Political News III– In yet another reason why regular Republicans detest their elected leaders, former President George W. Bush blasts average Americans by linking the Taliban and other jihadists to the Capitol Hill protesters who were swept up in the FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS being run by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi on January 06, 2021.  (Note- my GOP colleagues tell me they wish they could take back their votes from voting for this bum back in 2000 and again in 2004.  I can see why they feel this way as this is not right.  Chef Itzi Nakamura).
  86. 2021 Monday T: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Abortion providers across the United States are demanding the U.S. Supreme Court uphold Roe v. Wade, the ‘landmark’ decision that legalized the murder of the unborn from one end of the country to the other.
  87. 2021 Monday U: Arizona State News– An Arizona judge is going to look into the statewide ban on the wearing of masks in public schools.  Pro-mask groups are wailing and screaming over Governor Doug Ducey and his executive order banning the imposition of mask mandates and have found a favorable left-wing judge with which to challenge the governor’s constitutional authority on this and other Chi-Vi vaccine-related issues.
  88. 2021 Monday V: California State News– As the recall election is underway in California with which to remove perhaps the worst sitting governor in the history of the United States- Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom- reports are already coming out of people going to vote YES on the recall and discovering that the computer says, “They have already voted.”  There is going to be so much political chicanery coming from the left as the Dems try to save their ’golden bitch’ from being booted out on his ass that they are willing to replicate what they did on November 03, 2020, and that is to steal the election.  We suspect, however, that there are going to be so many YES votes on the recall that the Dems will be unable to mass produce enough ballots on the fly to save this puling POS governor.   The time is NOW to save the Golden State and to return it to the glorious place it once was.   
  89. 2021 Monday W: California State News II– Meanwhile, actress Rose McGowan joins forces with gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder saying that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom’s wife begged her NOT to talk about Harvey Weinstein’s depredations ahead of the world learning of them.  Seems like Governor “Nazi” Newsom and his wife aren’t so WOKE when it comes to a pig such as Mr. Weinstein.  Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-CA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘off-base Newsom deserves recall.’   Elsewhere, Michael Reagan says that Larry Elder is going to get BLOWN OUT in tomorrow’s recall election.  Finally, Ashli Babbitt’s widowed husband, Aaron- reports that he has received FOUR mail-in ballots at his home where he lives alone.
  90. 2021 Monday X: Missouri State News– Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, is probing vandalism that befell a memorial to the victims of September 11, 2002.  What a bunch of Marxist scum.  We must begin ferreting these SOBs out and show them what it means to be an American with love of country.
  91. 2021 Monday Y: New York State News– A New York hospital announced recently that it will NO longer deliver babies due to so many of its OB staff leaving the hospital over the Chi-Vi vaccine mandates.  Sad, incredibly sad.  At least 30 delivery room personnel have stood up and said, “We are not going to get vaccinated for the Wuhan Fever.”  Stand your ground, people, stand your ground.
  92. 2021 Monday Z: Sports News I– Tonight is the first Monday Night Football game of the 2021-2022 NFL Season: the Baltimore Ravens (0-0) @ the Las Vegas Raiders.  In overtime, the Raiders pull one out with a final score of 33-27.  Las Vegas will be rocking tonight as this was the new stadium’s first home crowd.  The hookers are going to be busy all night…
  93. 2021 Monday AA: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #884 with a jackpot of $416 million up for grabs: 37, 40, 50, 61, 63, and Powerball 21.  Out of 68,526 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 45 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $429 apiece.
  94. 2022 Tuesday:  Every Californian must remember in November that NO matter how unknown many of the Republican candidates in the California General Election, we must vote for them.  While GREEN this and GREEN that sound orgasmic, the truth of the matter is, like anything else, one cannot wham-bam into existence without proper planning and forethought.  Look at our illustrious governor, threatening power shutoffs at every turn and encouraging ALL EV owners not to plug their cars in between the hours of 4:00 PM and 9:00 PM because it will shatter the grid, the day after the little sword-swallowing closet fruitcake told the state that come 2035, NO MORE GASOLINE POWERED VEHICLES WILL BE SOLD IN THE STATE.  This man is such a worthless moron, he should have been booted out in last year’s recall election yet using the same chicanery that saved George Gascon he managed to retain power.  People, even if the cost of EVs could be cut by half, most California homes would require expensive updates to their electrical system in order to charge these ‘miracle vehicles’ without throwing the breakers and shutting off power.  Friends, we expect to join the exodus out of the Golden State as soon as we can sell our landmark restaurant and to go into retirement, preferably either down in Florida or in Nevada.  Either one would be good because California is on the precipice of complete collapse, and it certainly does not have to be this way.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

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

[ii] We began promoting the music of Foghat, one of the all-time greatest rock bands to explode out of England, beginning on Monday, 18-February-2018 through Monday, 19-March-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this celebrated group out by checking out the blog posts on those dates.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do, we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

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

[v] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vii] Tupac Shakur?  It could be 40 years before we begin promoting the music of rappers.  Please join us every day for that glorious day- you will be glad you did but NO Eminem. Fuck him- he hates his mother.

[viii] Many educated people believe that these so-called migrants are the advance waves of a Muslim invading army designed to bring Western Civilization down by overrunning Europe.  It must stop and it has to stop; otherwise, the world will transform into something it was never intended to be Sharia-ruled slave states with despots at the top.

Let us not forget that the Southern Democrats were the slaveowners and that the Northern Democrats did their best to provide them cover prior to and during the Civil War?

  48. 1991 Monday: Boxer Mike Tyson was indicted in Indianapolis on a charge of raping Desiree Washington, a beauty pageant contestant on this date in what many believe was a frame job to ensnare the embattled boxer. A jury convicted him, and he ended up serving three years of a six-year prison stretch.
  49. 1993 Thursday: Israel and PLO leaders agreed to recognize one another. While Israel has attempted to make peace, the lying Palestinians always do their best to avoid making peace.
  50. 1994 Friday: The U.S. agreed to accept about 20,000 Cuban immigrants a year. This was in return for Cuba’s promise to halt the flight of refugees. So instead of sending us immigrants, they send us criminals—and Obama opened the door to Cuba during his second term—son of a bitch!

  58. 2013 Monday: Near the foot of Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, archaeologists discover 1,400-year-old treasure, called “the Opel Treasure.” Elsewhere, four days of vehicular gridlock began near the George Washington Bridge when two of three approach lanes from Fort Lee, New Jersey, were blocked off; Democrats later blamed the traffic jam on loyalists to New Jersey Governor Chris “Big Fats” Christie over the refusal of Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich to endorse Christie for re-election. Christie denied any prior knowledge of the lane closures.  Hmmm, could “Big Fats” big telling the truth or is he a lying scumbag?  We will never know.
  59. 2014 Tuesday: In Taiwan, the government arrests six scumbags for selling contaminated lard products to foodservice operations, manufacturers, and restaurant suppliers, the lard contained discarded cooking oil as well as waste material from leather manufacturers. Meanwhile, in Iran, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei undergoes prostate surgery. It must have gone well, in 2020, the old POS is still alive.

  61. 2016 Friday: During the second term of Barack Hussein Obama, North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear weapons test. Leader Kim Jong Un wanted to make sure he caused problems for the successor of the 44th president, whether it was going to be Hillary Clinton or Donald J. Trump.
  62. 2017 Saturday: At the 74th Annual Venice Film Festival, Guillermo Del Toro’s “Shape of Water” wins the coveted Golden Lion Award. The movie starred Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins, and numerous others.
  63. 2018 Sunday: After six more women air their #MeToo allegations against CBS News boss Les Moonves in the New Yorker, he throws in the towel and calls it quits. Meanwhile, things are going crazy across Russia as police begin arresting anti-pension reform protests, rounding up one-thousand, or more, in a single day. Hey!  Vladimir Putin and his flunkies need to self-enrich so something has to give…
  64. 2019 Monday: After South Africa undergoes a wave of xenophobic violence, Nigeria says it will act quickly to repatriate at least 600 of their citizens. Since Nelson Mandela died, everything has gone to hell in the once-stable country. Meanwhile, singer John Legend[v] and plump wife Chrissy Tiegen light up President Donald J. Trump who launched into them on Twitter for criticizing his prison reform efforts.  He called them “foulmouthed’ and ‘boring,’ two criticisms the two ‘beautiful people’ didn’t like.  The truth always hurts.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Today, we learned that across the nation, Democrats dominate the requests for mail-in voting ballots. Folks, this is a time-honored variation of a psychological trick the Democrats ALWAYS use which is to depress their opponents into believing it’s a ‘done deal,’ that whomever the Republican president is, he is going to lose and to LOSE BIG. Don’t fall for it, let them do what they are doing.  Speaking of Democrats, we learned that the Harris-Biden 2020 Campaign raked in $355 million for the month of August: however, no reporting of the Trump-Pence tallies.  Elsewhere, Chicago reports that downtown Chi-Town renters are abandoning the city and who can blame them?  Lawlessness, mob violence, shootings, beatings, rapes, all are on the rise.  Thanks to this, occupancy rates have fallen by 5.2-percent over the past few weeks which means that Chicago- like New York City and other big BLUE STATE METROPOLISES- is going to die due to poor leadership and criminal mismanagement.   Next, Fox News reports that Obama-Biden, over their eight years in office lost 494,000 manufacturing jobs while over the past three years, Donald Trump gained them back.  Yet, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is on the campaign trails when he can wake up claiming HE is the one who will bring jobs back to America.   Speaking of President Trump, the Nobel Peace Prize group announced they were putting in Trump’s name for their 2021 Award thanks to trying to make peace with the North Koreans and for brokering a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, something, laughingly, that Vice President Biden claims ‘me and Barack set the foundation for;’ please, you two goobers did no such thing.  
  66. 2020 Wednesday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 27,605,570 confirmed cases, UP by 213,357 cases, 898,269 confirmed deaths, UP by 556 deaths, and 18,565,072 confirmed recoveries, UP by 187,663 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,434,718 confirmed cases, UP by 23,326 new cases, 193,119 confirmed deaths, UP by 668 new deaths, and 3,481,537 confirmed recoveries, UP by 30,719 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).
  67. 2020 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 747,603 confirmed cases, 13,899 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,025 confirmed cases, 88 confirmed deaths, and 3,063 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 81,133 confirmed cases, 2,046 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Wyoming: 4,103 confirmed number of cases, 42 confirmed number of deaths, and 3,451 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Mark Gordon for providing us the proper figures.
  68. 2020 Wednesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,940.47, UP 439.58 points (+1.60%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,141.56, UP 293.87 points (+2.71%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,398.96, UP 67.12 points (+2.01%).  The price of GOLD is $1,955.10 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $27.21 per troy ounce, +0.127 (+0.47%).  The price of PLATINUM is $924.10 per troy oz, -0.80 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.11%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,305.80 per troy oz, -37.40 (-1.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $37.83 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.58%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.83 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.37.
  69. 2020 Wednesday D: The Iranian garbage announce they are building a new, more secure site from which to enrich uranium at a much more rapid pace so they can build a bomb or two, the first one in 3.5-months. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard and their mullah bosses claim the Mossad destroyed their first site via fire and explosions earlier in the year. Folks, time to NUKE the living s**t out of these scumbags.  
  70. 2020 Wednesday E: Meanwhile, the Oscars announce complicated new diversity rules so we can all encircle the bonfire and sing ‘happy, happy, joy, you.’ Here they are: A QUOTA SYSTEM, how about that? To ensure more equitable representations, one of four lead actors must come from underrepresented groups such as black, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, or whatever else they can dream up along with 30-percent of all secondary actors must come from underrepresented groups including gays, the disabled, and the aforementioned groups as well as chicks.  In addition to that, the storylines/focus/themes must focus on underrepresented groups, and finally, at least two senior executives must come from underrepresented groups.  Wow, we already don’t watch movies now so from this point forward, we won’t be watching any flipping movies but if a producer wants their film to qualify for an Oscar- any Oscar- they will have to meet each of these requirements or qualify for NOTHING.   
  71. 2020 Wednesday F: The woman accusing President Donald J. Trump of sexual assault, aka ‘rape,’ back in the 1990s- E. Jean Carroll- says the U.S. Department of Justice’s decision to defend the president was “UNPRECEDENTED.” It is not unprecedented as many times the U.S. Department of Justice will insert itself into a legal case on behalf of an individual federal employee and since President Trump IS a federal employee, it is perfectly legal and common. Carroll claims that since the president recently disputed her accusations by saying (1) it never happened and (2) he doesn’t know her; it has harmed her credibility and her reputation.  Wah-wah-wah.  The Westfall Act gives federal employees absolute immunity from legal actions such as these and since Ms. Carroll is going to court in New York State, one can smell the malevolent odor of New York State Attorney General Letitia “Tish” James (as well as decrepit old battleax Hillary Rodham Clinton) somewhere in the mix.  We suspect that “Pro-China Joe” Biden will attempt to copy Trump’s tactics at a debate between he and Mrs. Clinton back in 2016 when the NY real estate developer and media mogul trotted out all of Bill Clinton’s rape accusers and sat them in the front row to throw the former first lady, senator, and secretary of state off her game- it worked but Ms. Carroll won’t sway Trump.  You can bet on it.  With the U.S. defending Trump, the case moves from New York State courts to the federal courts where she will end up the one in trouble.  Count on that, too.
  72. 2020 Wednesday G: Excerpts from Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, “Rage,” have clips of President Trump on tape downplaying COVID-19’s danger. President Trump has done more than any other country around the globe to defeat this Chi-Com bat flu, yellow fever virus running amok and when questioned on his statements, the commander-in-chief says he did ‘not want to cause a panic.’ Sounds about right.  What matters here is that communist China LIED to the world and must pay a price for their crimes against humanity.  Elsewhere, on the campaign trail, Joe’s anti-senility meds are working fairly well today, and he uses the admissions of Trump on tape to blast him and to tell the world all the amazing things he will do as president.  God help us!
  73. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 223,995,675 confirmed cases, +737,757, 4,619,835 confirmed deaths, +12,049 and 200,583,433 confirmed recoveries, +782,535.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 356,119 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 47,959 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

Federal Prisons: they have 55,909 confirmed cases, 257 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  76. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,145,932 confirmed cases, 7,313 confirmed deaths, and 1,059,332 confirmed recoveries (same numbers). Let us look at one other portion of the world- Greenland, 207th country on the list: 377 cases of the virus, N/A confirmed deaths and 309 confirmed recoveries. [ix]

  78. 2021 Thursday E: S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $3.009 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.883 in Washington state. [xiv] Let us look at one other location- Alabama: $2.840. 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- Spain: $6.312 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,741,965,625,065 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is All others with $215 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  79. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘it’s no surprise’ that four former Gitmo detainees are now running the show in Afghanistan. Next, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th congressional district, says that ‘Congress has neglected any talk of the failed Afghan evacuation.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mark Green, R-TN 7th congressional district, says recently imported Afghan refugees dumped in Virginia are able to have free-run of the state.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Taliban and other enemies of the U.S. do not fear us.’  Immigration guru and former Trump confidante Stephen Miller told Newsmax today that the ‘goal of the Biden regime is to settle as many refugees around the country as it possibly can.’
  80. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 169 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show and Day No. 76 since her sole visit to the border to do her job. Anyhow, here are the numbers as presented by One America News for the utter disaster befalling the nation. First, here are the numbers for the cost as of this day for caring for all this riffraff: $517,821,024.  Next, here is the cost for just this year of caring for the castoff products of the Third World: $275,586,383,872.  Next, here are the numbers for illegal aliens who have swarmed into the United States this year: 2,824,539.  Finally, here are the numbers of illegals estimated to be living in the country: 36,824,540.  However, we know the number is double that, if not higher.  This must stop. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden has been totally absent during the southern border crisis.’
  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Saudi Arabian Embassy in Washington, D.C. says that it ‘welcomes’ the upcoming disclosure of its role in the September 11, 2001, terror attacks and notes that it had NO role in them whatsoever. We shall see. Next, Yair Netanyahu- Benjamin Netanyahu’s son- says Israel is ‘spiraling out of control without his dad in office.’  Meanwhile, in other truly crazy news, New South Wales, Australia, has people on lockdown and now is putting a cap on the amount of alcohol one citizen can have delivered to their home or apartment per day: six beers or one bottle of wine.  What the hell is going on in that totally insane country?  This is frigging loony tunes, folks.  Finally, Chi-Com warplanes are penetrating Taiwanese airspace every day.  The war is coming…
  82. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– New Jersey police and firefighters are protesting in the streets against COVID-19 vaccine mandates being imposed upon them. Fight back, people, fight back. Meanwhile, liberal hypocrisy is on full display today: where once the American Civil Liberties Union stood against government-opposed mandates- especially medical ones- the ACLU now stands firmly behind all those seeking to impose harsh COVID-19 restrictions and vaccine mandates on the American people.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says there are too many new cases of the ‘VID to stop calling it a pandemic.’  “Phony Tony,” we hate to say this but it’s now endemic, something with which, we will just have to live- thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, Rep. Andy Harris, R-MD 1st congressional district, says there’s ‘no reason WHY someone who has had COVID-19 should have to get the vaccines.’
  83. 2021 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.03 (2) AstraZeneca $56.29 (3) Johnson & Johnson $168.07 (4) BioNTech $351.38 (5) Moderna $455.92. As you can see, the money-go-round is alive and well. Moderna is developing a 1-dose booster shot for the Chi-Vi and the flu, combined together in a double-whammy of God knows what to the human body.  Experts in the medical industry say that it takes two years at least to put a vaccine through clinical trials and we have not done that yet.  Anyone takes this crap, God help them.  Next, Joe Biden was bragging on the U.S. donating 140 million doses overseas with another 500 million slated to go to poor, highly deserving countries around the world.  Once again, here is the money-go-round in action.  Politicians and Deep State apparatchiks are highly invested in these companies and thus the federal government BUYS the vaccines, ships them elsewhere, and the aforementioned politicians and apparatchiks receive dividends as well as campaign funding and other freebies from these companies.  This is EVIL.
  84. 2021 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.66 (2) General Dynamics: $203.81 (3) Boeing: $213.94 (4) Lockheed Martin: $348.93 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $356.78.
  85. 2021 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.12 (2) DuPont: $70.30 (3) Honeywell: $222.93 (4) 3M: $185.75 (5) Teijen: $1659.00. WHY do you think that losers such as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and the CDC director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky continue pushing the wearing of masks? Like the vaccines, it’s the classic money-go-round as outlined above.  (Note- soon, we will begin doing the fake meat company stocks as the war on meat is on the way as of today…)
  86. 2021 Thursday M: President Donald J. Trump News– Gold Star mother Shana Chappell invited President Donald J. Trump to her U.S. Marine son Kareen Nikoui who was killed in the bomb blast at the Hamid Karzai International Airport- along with 12 other U.S. servicemembers- last month.
  87. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden released his oppressive ‘plan’ to get ‘COVID-19 under control.’ He is going to increase the pressure to get 80 million Americans who remain unconvinced or who simply won’t get the vaccine to undergo vaccination whether they want to or not. He is going to demand mask mandates and will counter any governor’s plan to either overlook demanding vaccinated employees or who blows off mask mandates (please see our new section on PPE manufacturers’ stock prices to understand the money-go-round on all this bull crap).  He wants to get schools open, will require ALL companies with 100 or more employees to force ALL employees to undergo vaccination even as he provides the U.S. Postal Service a carve out- NO vaccinations for them!  Say, what the f**k?  (The Republican National Committee is suing the Biden regime over its new COVID-19 ‘mandates’).
  88. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden was talking crap the other day about the U.S. Stock Market and the effect he was having on it. Well, stocks are tanking as are his approval numbers. Joe Biden now is a few points shy of what President Jimmy Carter’s were towards the end of his first and only term in office.  Joe Biden has collapsed below 40-percent approval which is not good for a usurper who has only been in office eight months.
  89. 2021 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– Amid growing resistance from the GOP, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen urges Congress to raise the debt ceiling before the government implodes. Next, the Biden regime is planning on hitting ALL Americans with massive tax increases such as charging drivers a tax of $0.08 per mile (actual figure will vary depending on types of vehicles). As for death taxes, unsold assets will be subject to tax as high as 43.3-percent for the wealthiest households on top of a 40-percent estate tax for millionaires.  Capital gains taxes will increase from 21-percent to 28-percent with a top marginal rate of 39.6-percent.  This is ONLY the beginning.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime had to pull the nomination of one of the worst POS yet to come out of this fraudulent regime, David Chipman nominated to head the Bureau of Alcohol and Tobacco.  What difference does it make?  The regime will send some other nut up to Capitol Hill to try to get confirmed.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Joe Biden lays out a plan to lower drug costs for associated with Medicare. (Note- President Donald J. Trump already did this, you loser). Next, the Biden regime is slamming the meat industry for ‘pandemic pricing.’  Joe, there were no workers, no livestock feed deliveries, WTF is wrong with you?  Why the f**k don’t you just shut the hell up?  What a loser.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice is suing Texas over its new fetal heartbeat abortion ban law. 
  91. 2021 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The FBI released new info on the ‘Capitol Hill pipe bomber.’ We think they have another Cesar Sayoc in the works. IF you don’t know who Mr. Sayoc is, look him up- that was bullshit, too.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian destroying the country, is putting Fort Pelosi back up ahead of the upcoming protest on Capitol Hill grounds in support of the political prisoners still in the slammer in D.C.  (We suspect that this protest is going to be infiltrated by Antifa and BLM agents who will then make this event even more explosive than the one on January 06, 2021.  See how it all works?  It’s not good).
  92. 2021 Thursday S: Political News I– Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, must stand up and do something with (losers) Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. Amen, boot those two scumbags out of the Republican conference. NOW.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he is asking SCOTUS to declare proxy voting in the House unconstitutional.
  93. 2021 Thursday T: Political News II– Rep. Clay Higgins, R-LA 3rd congressional district, said today that the U.S. is ‘greatly weakened’ since Joe Biden cheated his way into the White House. Next, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci should be charged with lying before Congress which he did.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, conservative icon Todd Starnes said that Joe Biden should ‘show some respect for both the U.S. military and the U.S. Constitution.’  Good luck with that, Mr. Starnes.
  94. 2021 Thursday U: Business News– Amazon.com announces it’s going to ‘invest $1.2 billion over the next four years to put their frontline employees through college or to get their high school diplomas. (Note- Eric Bolling at Newsmax said, ‘how about paying some taxes, Amazon?’ Everyone wants the answer to that pressing question).
  95. 2021 Thursday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Washington, D.C. Roman Catholic Archbishop Wilton Gregory says that ‘Joe Biden is NOT demonstrating Catholic faith.’ We concur. It is fake Catholics such as these who are going to be visiting Hell.  They have forgotten the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church.
  96. 2021 Thursday W: Social Media News– Many were shocked when a racist bitch wearing a gorilla mask of all-things threw an egg at gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder, R-CA, and then tried to fight with his security. Typical liberal BS but the Twitter verse is up in arms over this incident. About flipping time, folks.
  97. 2021 Thursday X: California State News– Democrats are beginning to sob tears over the impending doom for Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom. We are praying that POS is BLOWN OUT. (Hey, Gavin- where’s those relief checks you were going to send us?).  In fact, slobbering Joe Biden is coming to California to campaign for “Nazi” Newsom this upcoming Monday. 
  98. 2021 Thursday Y: Sports News I– The opening game of the 2021-2022 NFL Season begins with the Dallas Cowboys playing the world champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In a nail-biter of a game, the Bucs pulled it out in the final couple of seconds to win by a final score of 31-29. What a game.  The Cowboys played their hearts out but if you give Tom Brady a couple of seconds, that son-of-a-gun will pull it out.
  99. 2021 Thursday Z: For us, this is the midpoint of the week. Let us see what Beijing Biden is up to today… NFL 2021-22 Season opens tonight with the Dallas Cowboys visiting Superbowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bucs, obviously…
  100. 2022 Friday: Friends, I know everyone is celebrating the ‘lowered gasoline prices’ for which, frigging Joe Biden gets all the ‘credit’ but it’s a phony lowering of prices.  As everyone should know, he has tapped our Strategic Oil Preserve which President Donald J. Trump worked so diligently to fill with much of it flowing across the Pacific Ocean so we can pay the interest on our debt.  The real stunner will be the day after Election Day when oil prices will skyrocket back up because the Dems will have two years to ride out the tidal wave of anger until the 2024 Election Cycle.  I think prices will rise higher than what they were before the artificial lowering because the prices will reflect the true cost of gasoline as things now stand.  Democrats do not want people using gasoline-powered cars and so once unrestrained by what voters think, the prices will rise and will continue to rise thus worsening our economic circumstances.  This November, we must vote out every frigging Democrat no matter if they seem ‘reasonable’ because none of them are.  We must neuter the Biden regime and force them to go even more draconian in their retributions against us so everyone can see that Joe f**king Biden is little more than a senile tool of Barack Hussein Obama, a fraudulent president if ever one existed.  Let me know what you think.  Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[i] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Byrds and then Buffalo Springfield, had we been more perceptive at the time as to how we would combined integrated musical groups and performers, we should have done the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, as well as each artist’s solo catalog as well as that of the various members of the Byrds.  We look forward to correcting that mistake at some point in the next 3-5 years so please remain alert for that day.  You will be glad you did.

Trump comes to us from an article in The Atlantic magazine in which in 2018, the president called fallen U.S. soldiers at a U.S. military cemetery “losers and suckers.”  Four unnamed sources claim this is so just as they contend that President Trump also ‘didn’t think that wounded U.S. soldiers should participate in military parades.’  Most people believe that Generals John Kelly and “Mad Dog” Mattis are two of the sources, but the sources say they won’t come forward out of fear of ‘angry Tweets.’  Uh, okay.
  70. 2020 Friday A: When federal agents go to arrest the Antifa POS who murdered Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of Patriot Prayer, a conservative peace group in Portland, Oregon, last weekend, the perp- Michael Reinoehl drew a handgun and was shot dead.  Good riddance.  Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Speaker Nancy Pelosi finds herself under verbal assault as protesters go after her for violating her own rules about wearing face masks and not going to hairdressers for indoor appointments.  The old bat continues claiming ‘I was set up.’  We hope that AOC-backed Shahid Buttar cleans your clock on November 03.

  72. 2020 Friday C: As economic news continues being positive for August, we learn that 1.37 million new jobs were created and that the jobless rate fell to 8.4-percent.  Democrats continue whining and screeching that Trump is destroying the economy while “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues expanding on his theme he mentioned yesterday: ‘I can’t tell you my tax plan because “they’ll shoot me.”  Your tax plan’s that bad Joe?  Maybe you shouldn’t win in November!  Elsewhere, as of publication time, stocks continue falling after dropping 807 points on Thursday.

Qassim Soleimani.  Light ‘em up!

  83. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Even though it’s Saturday, the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris remains committed to the job of patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border.  Today is Day No. 164 for her to be in this prestigious post and Day No. 71 since her one and only visit to the border actually to do her job.  We commend her for her diligence.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien devastation occurring along our southern border as reported by One America News.  First, here is the appalling cost for just this day of caring for the refuse of the Third World: $561,123,904.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the invaders for the entire year so far: $270,150,238,208.  Next, here is the number of estimated illegals who have swarmed across the southern border this year: 2,768,823.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals living freely in the United States as we speak: 36,768,824.  Folks, this is neither sustainable nor humane.  We must round these people up and send them back to whence the f**k they came. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  84. 2021 Saturday G: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Well, we knew this would happen.  The WOKIES are up in arms over the new anti-abortion bill in the Lone Star State.  Uber, Lyft, and American Airlines are targeting Texas.  For Christ’s Holy Sake, corporations, can you just go about your business instead of jumping aboard the WOKE train?  You are driving more and more Americans away from you.  We most certainly will no longer use your services.   Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says the ‘Constitution says NOTHING about states enacting abortion bans.’
  85. 2021 Saturday H: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3592 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 09, 11, 23, 30, 43, and Mega 05.  Out of 105,231 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO mega for a prize of $35,459.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Rosemead, CA 91770.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #880 with a jackpot of $367 million up for grabs: 32, 35, 40, 52, 54, and Power 01.  Out of 109,171 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $62,496.
  86. 2022 Sunday: I guess I could have told you so: Joe Biden is a feeble fool, AG Merrick Garland is a cowardly POS, and the entire FBI is as my colleagues have labeled it, the Joestapo, cowardly scum Joestapo at best.  I thought for sure the Biden administration would swoop down on Trump at his racist rally in P.A. last night and drag him off in cuffs for the numerous crimes he has committed on the country but oh, no, the sniveling losers allowed it to go on which tells me that it’s all a big show and that they know they are going to be destroyed come November.  I am going to go independent.  I cannot take this anymore nor can my family.  All those MAGA Maggots and NO FBI crackdown.  What a bunch of losers.  It makes me sick.  See you in six months- If I haven’t been dumped.  Chef Itzi Nakamura.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  At the time, we damned sure should have promoted the music of its various members such as Roger “Jim” McGuinn, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark, David Crosby (along with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and their associated catalog of group and solo endeavors), as well as later Byrds such as Gene Parsons and Skip Battin, among others.  We hope to do so one day and hope that you will indulge us when we do.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too. 

[iv] We are not sure as to when we will promote the music of the Pretenders but when we do, you will be the first to know so rejoice.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] The father of Mitt Romney who plagues our modern times with his RINO BS.

[viii] Sadly, we were not as attuned to the sharing of interconnected bands and musicians when we promoted Santana years ago, but we do hope we will be able to promote the music of Journey at some point in the nest 10-12 years.

246. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 03, 2022

I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible, much-desired outcome this evening. Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow? He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.

  60. 2017 Sunday: In Manhattan, New York, Walter Becker of Steely Dan[viii]–(guitars/vocals 1972-81 / 1993-present)—died on this date at age 67 from no listed cause.  Meanwhile, due to the La Tuna wildfire raging near Los Angeles, California, Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, Democrat, issues a state of emergency order and requests aid from President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, pudgy North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un announces the biggest nuclear test yet in his country, one he calls their first ‘hydrogen bomb.’  This was the rogue nation’s sixth- and largest- test to date.
  61. 2018 Monday: As Argentina continues to implode under austerity measures to save the country’s collapsing economy, President Mauricio Macri goes on live television and informs the citizenry of his country that HALF of all government ministries will close.  Elsewhere, according to On This Day, following the conviction of a lesbian couple for attempting to have sex in public, the Sharia court of Terengganu State in Malaysia orders the women publicly caned.  This event marks the first time that a conviction and caning for such an offense in the Muslim nation of Malaysia has occurred.
  62. 2019 Tuesday: Following the recent shootings in El Paso, Texas, in which, a nutcase went out ‘hunting Mexicans’ and murdered quite a few people, Walmart announces that it will stop selling handguns and some ammunition as well as ask its customers NOT to open-carry when visiting their stores.  Meanwhile, in the Bahamas, Hurricane Dorian finally heads back out to sea after having stalled over its northern islands what with- at least- 50 people dead and more than 200 others missing.
  63. 2020 Thursday: Last week, approximately 881,000 new jobless claims occurred bringing the unemployment numbers for Americans to 13,300,000.  On the campaign trail today, President Donald J. Trump is blitzing Pennsylvania while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is in Kenosha, Wisconsin, pandering to the family of Jacob Blake.  Polls show Biden has ‘commanding leads’ in battleground states such as Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Arizona.  Elsewhere, Antioch, California, Mayor Sean Wright blasts Contra Costa County District Attorney Diane Beckton that before she prosecutes looters, she will first make the determination as to whether they NEEDED the items they stole.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is beginning the process of slashing federal funding to four largely Democratic Party-held cities- Seattle, Portland, Oregon, New York City, and Washington D.C. until they reestablish and enforce law and order.  In response to this, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo tells POTUS ‘YOU CAN’T COME TO NEW YORK- OR ELSE.’ Finally, Facebook announces it will ban all political ads one week out from the November elections in the hope it can prevent Russian disinformation from swaying voters to vote ‘correctly,’ meaning for “Gropin’ Joe” Biden and not for President Donald J. Trump.
  64. 2020 Thursday A: California state Senator Scott Wiener sends SB 145 legislation to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his signature.  The bill will give judges ‘discretion’ in sentencing pedophiles and will lower penalties for child rape provided the difference in age between the so-called ‘willing child’ and the rapist is 10 years of less.  Hence, a 20-year-old sexual deviate can rape a 10-year-old child either anally or orally by claiming the youngster was a ‘willing participant’ in his rape.  Someone somewhere, do something to Senator Wiener- within the scope of the law.  California is indeed Sodom and Gomorrah. God, wipe out the state!
  65. 2020 Thursday B: Speaker Pelosi continues screeching that she ‘was framed’ for Hairgate, promising to get even with those who ‘set her up’ and was able to intimidate the hairdresser who gave her and wash and blowout into saying that ‘yes, she was setup.’  What is clear here is that Speaker Pelosi knows she is in the wrong because she canceled her weekly press conference today as she fears having to answer questions about this scandalous behavior.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 346,217 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 57,861 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xvi]        
  74. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.397 per gallon, $3.021 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.891 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Puerto Rico: $3.558.  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- Montenegro: $6.057 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,719,043,045,883 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  75. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As the Chinese move into Afghanistan, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, says they are going to find it hard going.  We mentioned this a while back because there are so many disparate groups in Afghanistan that it will be extremely easy for them to come into conflict with the Chinese.  Muslims despise communists and the former Soviet Union understands this extremely well.   When the Taliban or ISIS-K or the warrior tribes begin attacking Chinese infrastructure and killing their people, it will be problematic for the bottom line in Beijing.  The Chinese will have to respond heavy-handedly, and we suspect they could find themselves embroiled in their own lengthy war, perhaps 40 years?
  76. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, friends- today is Day No. 163 for the globally famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 70 since her one and only visit to the region.  Otherwise, she has been doing everything imaginable to avoid doing her job.  What a shame.  According to One America News network, here are the astounding numbers for both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens and the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals within the United States thanks to the absent Biden regime.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $493,569,376.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the refuse of the Third World for calendar year, 2021: $268,986,777,600.  Third, here is the number for illegals who have swarmed across our border for just this year: 2,756,899.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE for illegal aliens residing in our country, swamping hospitals, overrunning schools, sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers 24/7/365: 36,756,900.  You know what we say- the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million of the scumbags.  Let’s round them up, throw them aboard southbound planes, trains, automobiles, trucks, and even tramp steamers and send them back to whence the f**k they came. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- more than $54 million has been donated to Texas to continue the building of its border wall.  Excellent.
  77. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The People’s Republic of China announced today that it is going to retain its embassy in Kabul and will provide economic assistance to the Taliban.  They will also work at building oil pipelines from Iran through the so-called “Graveyard of Empires” to western China.  In other overseas news, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga is set to resign as the end of the month following a collapse in his poll numbers.  His battle against COVID-19 has not been as good as anticipated and he is doing the honorable thing as Joe Biden should in the United States.   New elections will occur soon.
  78. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is setting harsher measures regarding COVID-19 after shunning vaccine help from neighboring China.  Uh-oh.  Loads of people are going to die.  Meanwhile, China is going to scrub all effeminate men from its airwaves.  Perhaps we should do that here in the United States? 
  79. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new report says that 83-percent of recent blood donations ALL show evidence of COVID-19 antibodies.  Meanwhile, as the U.S. government continues pushing forward with demanding COVID-19 booster shots (again, follow the money), the European Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there is “NO evidence of a need for a third shot.”  The FDA said today that it’s going to take additional time to determine whether a need for a booster (or a never-ending series of booster) shots before ordering them.  Still, if and when we go down this crazy road, Pfizer will be the one pumping out the boosters.  (Note- everyone begin investing in Pfizer stock.  NOW).
  80. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– A new report suggests that ‘unvaccinated cadets at the U.S. Border Patrol Academy could soon be booted unless they roll up their arms for the jab.  Wow.  Next, crazy Dr. Ashish Jha says, ‘it’s not crazy to think there is a need for a third round of COVID-19 booster shots.’  Dr. Jha, do us a favor: shut the hell up.  WHY do we need COVID-19 vaccines much less a damned booster shot when the vaccines contain an extinct virus?  The original virus is long since gone, we are moving through one variant after another such as the Delta, the Lambda, and now the notorious ‘MU.’  Stop spreading bullshit, please.  Meanwhile, a new Rasmussen poll says that viewers of conservative news channels have better understanding of the risks associated with the vaccines or of death facing them whether they get the vaccines or don’t get the vaccines.
  81. 2021 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $58.83 (3) Johnson & Johnson $175.04 (4) BioNTech $334.30 (5) Moderna $416.70.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: -(1) Pfizer $46.60 (2) AstraZeneca $58.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $172.93 (4) BioNTech $358.48 (5) Moderna $382.22.  See the trend?  FOLLOW THE MONEY!
  82. 2021 Friday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.65 (2) General Dynamics: $202.46 (3) Boeing: $218.17 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.00 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $365.93.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today:  Raytheon: $85.40 (2) General Dynamics: $199.72 (3) Boeing: $221.66 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.99 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $364.99.  Remain vigilant.  Invest in companies you believe in because our elected leaders and the denizens of the Deep State are investing in these companies and in the pharmaceutical stocks.  FOLLOW THE MONEY!
  83. 2021 Friday N: 2020 Election Audit– People are beginning to inquire as to WHEN the Arizona 2020 Election audit results are going to be released?  So far, NO WORD as to when which is leading some people to speculate that Attorney General Mark Brnovich is sitting atop them because the RINO has been bought off by Democrat allies.  We will keep you posted.  Meanwhile, the Badger State is ordering its own 2020 Election Audit as Pennsylvania prepares to do.
  84. 2021 Friday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump endorsed famed NFL star Hershel Walker to defeat freshman Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, in November 2022.  Excellent choice.  Speaking of the President, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th CD, says he believes that President Trump will be running for a third term in 2024. 
  85. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators are demanding feeble old Joe Biden provide information on the numbers of Americans he abandoned behind the lines in Afghanistan.  Next, bowing to pressure from the American people, Joe Biden released an executive order ordering the FBI to release all relevant information concerning September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the role the Saudis played in it.  We shall see what happens.  Finally, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel reported tonight that financial aid will make its way to the Taliban because they have promised to combat CLIMATE CHANGE.  How about that?  (Joe, we’ll fight CLIMATE CHANGE, too, by stop eating gaseous vegetables.  How do we get some of this easy money?)
  86. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Crazy old Joe Biden is lying yet again, this time saying how he ‘spent a lot of time at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, following the white supremacist attack on the place of worship back on October 27, 2018.’  Now, Joe believes he was Donald J. Trump because President Trump is the man who visited the site and met with the rabbi, not senile old Joe.
  87. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– New reports suggest that Susan Rice, Ron Klain, and Barack Hussein Obama are the ones calling the shots in the sagging ears of senile old Joe Biden.  Next, this is extremely puzzling, and we heard today that the Biden regime wants to remove penalties on the trafficking of deadly fentanyl into the United States.  WTF?
  88. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– Much excitement is swirling around the GOP candidate- Cicely Davis- seeking to unseat the extremely unpopular rabble rouser, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th CD, in 2022.  Omar is reputed to have married her brother to scam the U.S. immigration system and is a strong advocate of jihad and other Islamist ideas.  We will send money to Ms. Davis.  Omar and her fellow (Suicide) Squad skanks- Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, and Cori “The Bitch” Bush all must be ejected from office in November 2022 and onto the scrap heap of defeated left-wing politicians.
  89. 2021 Friday T: Economic News– The White House is running for cover because the expected 720,000 new jobs in the month of July collapsed to a measly 235,00 jobs, most of which, we suspect are little more than ‘hamburger-flipper jobs.’  Shame on the Biden regime for destroying the U.S. economy.  Still, it did not stop the brain-dead usurper in the White House to take a dig at President Donald J. Trump during a ‘jobs speech’ today when he mumbled, “I took on a nation in crisis.”  Joe, YOU caused the crisis, the nation was doing quite well before you stole the 2020 Presidential Election.   In other news, Paris Dennard who once worked with Donald J. Trump and who works for the GOP says that Joe Biden has failed the black community.  He pointed out that unemployment for black males has gone up to 9.1 percent, for black females to 7.9 percent, and for black youths to 17.9 percent.  Man, oh, man, Joe Biden, you are helping black Americans extremely well, aren’t you?  You loser.
  90. 2021 Friday U: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former Roman Catholic Church Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Massachusetts is set to be arraigned on charged he molested a teenager.  Meanwhile, Jacob Chansley, the so-called QANON shaman reportedly is taking a plea deal that will see him do 41-51 months behind bars instead of close to 50 for his role in wandering into the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.
  91. 2021 Friday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, plans to follow the Texas Pro-Life law in her state.  She wants to make South Dakota a strong Pro-Life refuge and not a barbarous, baby chop shop like many leftist-controlled states. [xx]  Speaking of Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton says that abortion law ‘must be at the state level and not the federal.’  We concur.  San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone says that abortion is not a ‘religious issues’ but a ‘fundamental human rights issue.’  Still, the Biden regime aided by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY are working overtime to uncover a scheme by which they can overturn the new Texas fetal heartbeat law.  A Senate panel is now carrying out a probe on this ‘evil law,’ one the U.S. Supreme Court allowed to stand… Finally, liberal groups are suing individual Texas lawmakers over the new fetal heartbeat law in the Lone Star State.
  92. 2021 Friday W: Social Media News – Twitter launched a new feature that will allow SOME users to earn money from tweeting.  Bet you won’t see any conservatives making any money from Twitter.   Meanwhile, YouTube censored a video supporting the recall of California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  Shame on them.
  93. 2021 Friday X: Big Tech News– Apple Inc. finally got around to eliminating a homeless community on their property in Silicon Valley.  They offered all manner of aid and help to its inhabitants, most of whom turned it down and wandered away when the area was cleansed, sanitized, and made useful again.  Advocates of urban outdoorsmen raised a BIG STINK, but it is cruel to allow people to live like animals.  We must reclaim and rehabilitate them and return them to society as contributing members.
  94. 2021 Friday Y: Weather News I– In New York City in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, at least 44 people have lost their lives in various storm-related mishaps.  Some drowned in basement apartments, others were swept away, and still others drowned in submerged vehicles.  The Democrats are howling that Global Warming is the root cause but folks, hurricanes typically occur every year and some of them can be extremely destructive.   Speaking of Ida, slobbering Joe Biden visited New Orleans today to visit storm-related damage there and lo and behold NOT a single outcry from the Fake News Media screeching that Joe was ‘taking away resources by his visit that were needed elsewhere.’  Funny how this works… Elsewhere, when Ida hit New Jersey, the storm-generated tornado we saw on the news had winds of 150 mph.  Wow.
  95. 2021 Friday Z: War on Terror News-Terrorism News-Jihad News– Member of the ‘Beatles,’ an ISIS execution group, British-born Alexanda Kotey, pled guilty in a U.S. courtroom to murdering and torturing numerous people, Americans among them, overseas in the now defeated ISIS caliphate.  He is set to spend the remainder of his crappy life in a federal prison.  In other news, police in New Zealand swarmed a local grocery store after a jihadist whipped out a large knife and began slashing shoppers and within minutes, shot the suspect dead.  Good.  Hang his corpse up for the crows.
  96. 2021 Friday AA: California State News– California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, DS, says that ’21 percent of the mail-in ballots in the recall election of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom are already pouring in.’  This should give the Dems ample opportunity to see how many ballots they are going to have to order from other states so they can maintain this POS governor in office.
  97. 2021 Friday BB: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The stupid California teacher Annette Franco who bragged in a TikTok video how she removed the reviled American flag from her grade school classroom and supplanted it with the homosexual rainbow flag and had her kids pledge allegiance to the foul thing has been removed from the classroom.  Yet, she will sit in a CTA rubber room for the rest of her days drawing her full check and benefits.
  98. 2021 Friday CC: Observation of the Day– Here’s an observation for you: the Ancient Greeks were ‘WOKE,’ and the Romans steamrolled over them.  More than a thousand years later, the Ancient Romans equally became ‘WOKE’ and the barbarians overran them.  For all you pansified losers prancing around demanding all things ‘WOKE,’ if you succeed, you are more or less sealing the fate of the United States- the brightest spot on the planet for human rights- by guaranteeing we are more concerned with gender, perversion, homosexuality, and other signs of the End Times.  However, you will be among the first to go when the Chinese, the Russians, the Islamists, or some other culture takes us over.  It will be a pleasure watching you thrown from skyscrapers, hung from helicopters and construction cranes, or any of the other ways devised by the enemies of human rights and freedoms.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.  
  99. 2021 Friday DD: Observation of the Day II– Regarding abortion, whatever happened to personal responsibility?  The fact that women continue getting knocked up implies that relations between men and women have become extremely sloppy.  While most gay men use condoms, it appears that women are open to any and all penetration sans any form of birth control (condoms, IUDs, birth control pills, and other easily accessible forms of preventing unwanted pregnancies) which then leaves abortion as the ONLY form of correcting a ‘mistake.’  I am inclined to believe that where once President Bill Clinton said that abortion should be ‘safe, legal, and rare,’ and that most Americans can accept termination of a pregnancy within the first trimester, the reason for abortion at ALL STAGES of fetal and even post-fetal development, i.e., birth, is because Planned Parenthood encourages it.  The reason for the encouragement is because they make BIG BUCKS just as they can continue the slaughter of babies of color, black women being number one among the recipients of abortions.  This is evil and it must stop.  Once a country makes it legal (and easy) to get rid of unwanted babies, the deformed, the mentally ill, and the old and senile (watch out, Joe) will be the next.  Think about it.  The Nazis labeled the unwanted as ‘useless eaters,’ people who contributed nothing to society (in their view) and who were in need of euthanasia.  Let’s return to men and women exercising personal responsibility and not becoming part of the Satanic offerings the left wants us all to be.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.
  100. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1691 what with a $323 million jackpot on the line: 07, 10, 12, 61, 65, and Mega 03.  Out of 111,113 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,292.
  101. 2021 Friday FF: Friends, the government says via a recent white paper that if an American citizen questions the efficacy of wearing masks or the results of the 2020 Presidential and National Elections, that person can and most likely will be considered a TERRORIST.  If that is the case, then so be it but I will tell our friends in the government this: there are far more of us than there are of YOU.  You would be wise to remember that.  Also, the moment the Joestapo shows up, demand a lawyer.  Period.  God bless America!
  102. 2022 Saturday: I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible outcome this evening.  Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow?  He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.  I am praying for a similar outcome because our nation cannot stand much more of the hateful, racist, divisiveness that is ripping the fabric of our great nation apart.  As I’ve said, I think arresting the man in a public setting will set off his minions which will then lead to civil unrest across the country thus giving us the pretext for our noble president to declare martial law and to postpone the November elections.  We must postpone the elections so as to secure our imperiled nation and we must send all the insurrectionists to reeducation camps so they can become contributing members of society once again.  Let’s take a page out of the China-Uighur Muslim playbook and put it to good use here- I think it will work.  Let me know what you think- Chef Itzi Nakamura.

This artwork is #0941 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Burro Alley.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

207. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 26, 2022

2022 Tuesday: I would love to sit down with “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, the soon-to-be ex-representative from Wyoming and tell this incredibly stupid bi**h that the more she and her cronies go after President Donald J. Trump, the stronger they make him and his movement. I know Democrats who want to see Joe Biden relegated to the dumpster fire of history and President Trump and pro-America politicians and bureaucrats returned to the White House and government.

[v]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 308,544 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 95,534 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  60. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,916,002 confirmed cases, 64,267 confirmed deaths, and 2,091,766 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,525,342 confirmed cases, 38,670 confirmed deaths, and 2,277,524 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 40,659 confirmed cases, 527 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 470,748 confirmed cases, 6,137 confirmed deaths, and 229,906 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Arizona: they have 918,609 confirmed cases, 18,171 confirmed deaths, and 875,389 confirmed recoveries. [vi]    
  61. 2021 Monday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 862,717 confirmed cases, 6,461 confirmed deaths, and 843,855 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Timor-Leste, 160th country on the list: 10,348 cases of the virus, 26 confirmed deaths and 9,627 confirmed recoveries. [vii]     
  62. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,144.31, UP 82.76 points (+0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,840.71, UP 3.72 points (+0.025%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,422.30, UP 10.51 points (+0.24%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.98 per barrel, +0.09 (+0.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,799.00 per troy oz., -0.20 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.21 per troy ounce, -0.11 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,063.10 per troy oz, -7.00 (-0.65%) while the price of COPPER is $4.61 per pound, +0.02 (+0.58%).

The price of NEODYMIUM is $720,000.00 per ton, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,503.25 per ton, -4.00 (-0.16%). [x]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.     In Falklands Islands Pound, one greenback equals 0.708843 and in Fijian Dollar, a buck equals 2.06 and in French Pacific Franc, one dollar equals 100.90 of theirs.[xi]       
  63. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.332 per gallon, $2.967 in Florida, $4.065 in Hawaii, and $3.837 in Washington state. [xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Iowa: $2.983.  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- Uganda: $4.505 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,568,407,681,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  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 Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 125 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and her 31st day since her one and only visit to the El Paso Sector along the border.  Sadly, for the country, the invasion of the United States continues around the clock as thousands cross every single day into the country, turning themselves over to border authorities, and then being distributed across the entire country.   We learned today that Joe Biden’s halting of the border wall project is costing U.S. taxpayers $3 million per day in shut down costs, security costs, and other incidental costs. 
  65. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, raised an important question: ‘Where was U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ warning to all the illegals flooding across the southern border?’  After all, the DHS secretary warned Cubans NOT to venture to the United States as they would be denied entry into the United States.   Meanwhile, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says the Biden halt on building the border wall is “a crime against nature and intelligence.”  Next, Governor Kristi Noem journeyed to the Tex-Mex border today to view the ongoing Joe Biden-caused crisis occurring there around the clock.
  66. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Tunisian president has shuttered the doors on the nation’s parliament amid rising civil unrest.  Elsewhere, the Russians did some chest-thumping today by announcing the development of a ‘doomsday plane.’  What is this?  A nuclear-powered aircraft that can remain in the skies overhead 24/7/365 armed with nuclear weapons?  That would be something.  Meanwhile, we learned today that HUNTER BIDEN’S art agent has had DEEP TIES to communist China since 2014.  Say it ain’t so, drooling Joe!  All this talk about ‘ethics’ regarding Hunter Biden’s crooked dealings is nothing more than BULLSHIT.
  67. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– France announced that it warned the United States back in 2015 about the COVID-19 experiments going on in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Did the U.S. take note of the warning?  It seems not.   Likewise, Rep. Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, says of the Chi-Vi that ‘COVID-19 is part of the Chi-Coms unrestricted biowarfare program against the United States.’  It is getting close to time when we should light these communist SOBs up with as many neutron bombs as we can muster.  Right on cue, drooling Joe Biden plans to keep travel restrictions, i.e., mask requirements, in place citing the various COVID-19 variants.  Hey, Joe!  How about closing the f**king southern border?   (Note- none of us believe that Joe Biden can tell his ass from a hole in the ground.  Yes, that’s cruel, we know it, but so apropos).
  68. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– A national debate continues over the wearing/not wearing of masks in schools as the first day of instruction draws closer.  However, we learned today that on Friday, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki said that the White House is ‘NOT mandating Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations for White House staff.’  Wow.  What’s good enough for them is good enough for us.   Elsewhere, as the war against the unvaccinated continues, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says the ‘ban on the unvaccinated is akin to segregation.’  Amen.  In other Chi-Vi news, the Veterans Administration becomes the first federal agency requiring EVERY health care employee to be vaccinated for Wuhan Virus Crisis. 
  69. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– California will now require proof of vaccination for the China Virus from ALL state workers no matter who you are.   Regarding the Chi-Com Beijing Bug, a new Rasmussen Poll says that public opinion of the media’s COVID-19 coverage has soured since President Donald J. Trump left the White House.   Elsewhere, Pfizer and Moderna- according to a report- are going to expand their ongoing studies into Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines for kids aged 5-to-11.  The kids don’t need the damned vaccines, folks.
  70. 2021 Monday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Wisconsin GOP lawmakers are now promising a forensic audit of the 2020 Elections in their state.  We know a great deal of election fraud occurred in the Cheese Head State in the hours post-Election Day.
  71. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is demanding that citizenship for the DREAMERS- illegal aliens brought here as brats- must be included in the $3.5 trillion budget bill.  Oh, really? 
  72. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, has unveiled a new bill today, the “Free Britney Act” in honor of pop star Britney Spears who is trapped in a conservatorship run by her father.  We hope she is able to get out of this cruel and highly unnecessary imposition on her life and that perhaps her leeching father will end up in the slammer.  Meanwhile, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will create a reverse Robin Hood effect by which, the rich will get richer and the poor poorer.’  Amen.  Speaking of the infrastructure bill, President Donald J. Trump says that the GOP must wait on passing this mess until after the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Amen to this, too.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– A new poll says that a whopping 81-percent of the American people are alarmed by the growing presence of the Chi-Coms across the United States government as well as their presence in media and popular culture.  The American people also are fearful that the Chi-Coms are buying up vast tracts of U.S. farmland.  This crap must stop, and the Chi-Coms must be booted from everything into which, their evil tentacles have slithered. 
  74. 2021 Monday P: Political News III– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani continues to blast Joe Biden for cozying up with communists while the Cuban people continue protesting for their freedom! [xv]  In fact, over the weekend in Washington, D.C., a crowd of Cuban Americans showed up and raised their voices in front of the White House, demanding the Biden regime do something to help their friends, relatives, neighbors, and fellow citizens.  Speaking of protests, another good-sized crowd showed up in front of the Joestapo D.C. headquarters where more than 500 Capitol Hill protesters are still being held and abused.  For whatever reason, the D.C. Joestapo is trying to crush out the spirits of American patriots by abusing and mistreating these people who six months after the ‘incident’ are still being denied bail.  Whatever happened to bail reform? 
  75. 2021 Monday Q: Political News IV– Rep. Tom Emmer, R-MN 6th congressional district, head of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) guarantees that the GOP is going to retire U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D-CA 12th congressional district, ‘PERMANENTLY.’  Man, she needs to be retired now.  The nonagenarian, disheveled, lemon-sucking speaker should have been retired years ago.  We hope you are able to keep your word on this.  We would rather see Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, DS-MD 5th congressional district, running the show.  
  76. 2021 Monday R: Political News V– Tomorrow is the beginning of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s Stalinist show trial- the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots Select Committee- and all eyes are on Washington, D.C. for the SHOW TRIAL OF THE CENTURY!  Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, 23rd congressional district, MUST PULL Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, from the select committee.  We agree.  IF Leader McCarthy fails to do this, AICPENDBLOG.COM members in California will work at getting him out in November 2022.  In other news, Donald Trump Jr. is leading in favorability polls.   (Leader McCarthy did label Kinzinger and Cheney as little more than “Pelosi Republicans.”  How true.  Vote this scum out of office).
  77. 2021 Monday S: Miscellaneous News I– A New Jersey woman continues to suffer daily fines of $250 for putting out signs that are derogatory of enfeebled Joe Biden in her front yard.  Where can the AICPENDBLOG.COM send money to help you continue putting out these patriotic signs?  In other miscellaneous news, Chef Lilah Paulikovich of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day says that over the weekend when she was citing VAERS on our Twitter page that a reader said you ‘can’t take everything the federal Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System says.’  That left her somewhat flabbergasted as she said to this individual that ‘you liberals drop to your knees in front of big government on everything else it says so why not VAERS?’  No answer to her question.  Isn’t it amazing how libs always pick and choose which government entities they choose to follow or quote?
  78. 2021 Monday T: Economic News– Bitcoin’s rise has helped to lift all other cryptocurrencies up in value although the ‘Tether’ cryptocurrency is being investigated for possible bank fraud.  Elsewhere, Dutch company Philips beats Q2 forecasts ahead of respirator device recall.  In other economic news, Irish budget airlines Ryanair projects 100 million passengers this year.  Even though they have had some downturns, they are bullish on their future.
  79. 2021 Monday U: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Noted communist financier George Soros has funded more than $1 million to help ‘Defund the Police’ efforts across the United States.  When the hell is Black Ops going to run this bastard to earth and whack him?  Enough is flipping enough already.  In other news, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, DS-NY, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, is questioning the neutrality of the Empire State’s prosecutors who are investigating the cretin for a variety of crimes such as sexual assault, killing nursing home residents by seeding facilities with Chi-Vi-infected patients, and other crimes.  We hope to see the governor wearing an orange jump suit sometime soon.  Elsewhere, lawyers for so-called ‘QAnon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley are trying to get their client released now that he is suffering from mental illness due to his ongoing mistreatment in the Joestapo jail in Washington, D.C.  LET THESE PEOPLE OUT OF PRISON NOW- this is not America.  IF it is, you are behaving like the federal government did back when the accused assassins of President Abraham Lincoln were mistreated and tortured.  This is NOT good.
  80. 2021 Monday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– House Democrats are unifying behind their goal of dirtying the souls of EVERY American by stripping away the Hyde and Helms Amendments that prohibit using taxpayer dollars to fund abortions in the United States (Hyde Amendment) and abroad (Helms Amendment).  WTF do the taxpayers have to fund abortions for women both here in the United States and across the world.  WTF is wrong with these evil people?  They are putting bullseyes on their backs, that’s for sure.  (Note- the Democrats and the RINOs reap big rewards from money culled from the sale of fetal body parts that end up in their hip pockets via political donations).
  81. 2021 Monday W: Big Tech News– In an all-too common occurrence, hackers hacked into What’s App and got the information from approximately 1,500 U.S. government employees as well as from journalists and activists.  It’s almost as if BIG TECH permits this kind of crap to happen.   Elsewhere, Amazon.com is pushing to get individual apartment keys from building superintendents so as to enter people’s apartments ostensibly to leave people’s packages inside.  Wow.  What could go wrong with this?
  82. 2021 Monday X: Natural Disasters News– Due to a massive sandstorm raging in Utah, at least seven people were killed in a massive vehicle pileup and numerous other people injured.  Elsewhere, five firefighters who suffered fire burns in the Devil’s Creek, Montana, are recovering.  God bless you, folks!
  83. 2021 Monday Y: Sports News I– A U.S. medical student has won an Olympics first and won GOLD in fencing.  She beat a Russian out.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Army Lt. Amber English won a GOLD medal in skeet shooting.  In other Olympics news, four new sports are debuting this year: karate, surfing, skateboarding, and competitive climbing.   Sadly, viewing numbers for the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics are way, way down.  Maybe get rid of the WOKE bullshit? 
  84. 2021 Monday Z: U.S. Military News– As all hell continues breaking across Afghanistan, the U.S. military says that it will support its Afghan allies with continued airstrikes against Taliban and al-Qaida targets.  Light ‘em up.
  85. 2022 Tuesday: I would love to sit down with “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, the soon-to-be ex-representative from Wyoming and tell this incredibly stupid bi**h that the more she and her cronies go after President Donald J. Trump, the stronger they make him and his movement.  I know Democrats who want to see Joe Biden relegated to the dumpster fire of history and President Trump and pro-America politicians and bureaucrats returned to the White House and government.  Sadly, when people are as ignorant as are “Lyin’ Liz” and Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, they cannot see the path before them, only the one behind them, the one they cannot interpretate properly.  We, the American people are tired of these lying scumbags and will go to the ends of the Earth to get every single one of them out of office beginning with “Lyin’ Liz.”  You can count on it.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0903 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sand, Verbenas, and Red Rocks.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Beach Boys’ wunderkind, Brian Wilson, “Pet Sounds Live,” came out on June 12, 2002.  (Note- we at the AICPENDBLOG.COM occasionally get our dates mixed up, this we have two albums that appear earlier than several of the previous offerings- it is what it is, please oblige us.  Thank you).  This album features the complete “Pet Sounds” album performed in its entirety in Great Britain earlier in the year.  Once again, the sensational composer has a stellar cast of musicians accompanying him and the album from 1966 appears in its glorious entirety in the way Wilson wanted it to appear.   There are 14 tunes here (16 on the Japanese exclusive release later in the year which includes what we would think are the encore tunes) which are startlingly enchanting recreation of a glorious album from an equally glorious time.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite haunt for music and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure; we think you will be glad that you did.  Enjoy.

[iii] 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.
