  39. 1960 Sunday: Founder of the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad, calls for a ‘black state.’[iii].   (Note- wasn’t the nation of Liberia created to be the first ‘black state?’).  The sad thing is, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted the American people to be integrated, intermixed, and one harmonious people.  That was his dream so anything contrary to that dream is nothing more than bullshit and what’s even worse, six decades later America-haters would be trying to tear it all asunder.

  63. 2017 Monday: After less than two weeks, foul-mouth Anthony Scaramucci, aka the Mooch- is forced out of his position as communications director for Donald Trump’s White House.  The next to get the boot is the wily 5th U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.  This loser first became secretary on January 20, 2017 and served under President Donald J. Trump from then until today.  His replacement, the 5.5th Acting U.S. Secretary of the DHS Elaine Duke assumed office.  She would serve until December 06, 2017.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: The 104th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to replace 99th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement.  He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later.  Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.  Little did they know they would not have to worry about that. [vi] Meanwhile, Facebook announces a major moment of virtue-signaling as it announces it ‘removed Russian-linked accounts that are attempting to interfere in the November 2018 Elections.’[vii] 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor.  Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  66. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women.  He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him.

Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
  71. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 198,497,926 confirmed cases, +525,446, 4,232,079 confirmed deaths, +8,931 and 179,252,925 confirmed recoveries, +368,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,743,144 confirmed cases, UP 65,394 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,310 confirmed deaths, UP 380, [ix] and 29,666,084 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,303.  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 310,868 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 93,210 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  76. 2021 Saturday 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 $4.367 per gallon, $2.972 in Florida, $4.092 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.919.  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- Curacao: $4.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,587,535,043,912 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping 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.
  77.  2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 130 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘Booty Call Mattress,’ aka the squealing swamp hog of the Everglades, aka the yowling midnight lemur to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 36th day since her one and only visit to the border and again to have done nothing about it.  Okay, One American News always presents the costs of illegal immigration for the American People.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegals pouring across the southern border: $635,102,752.  Absolutely shocking.  Horrible we know.  Next, here is the cost for this year: $231,328,045,120.  Imagine all this money going to care for ILLEGAL ALIENS!  Next, here are the numbers estimated to have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,376,624.  Finally, here are the CONSERVATIVE estimates as to how many illegal aliens are roaming the land: 36,376,662.  (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).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an army of storm troopers the Democrats can deploy against the rest of us (which is why ammunition is flying off the shelves right now).
  78. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has written a letter to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, urging her NOT to include mass amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the country.  She won’t listen.  
  79. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The Biden regime is threatening a new round of lockdowns and restrictions if more Americans don’t rush out and get vaccinated against the Chi-Vi.   Last week, there was mention of the NEW Lambda variant out of Peru being worse than the Delta variant and then within a day, all talk of the Lambda variant (SARS-CoV-2) vanished out of the window, and it was back to pounding the Delta drums.   Amazing how the libs continue guiding all talk on the Chi-Vi and how everyone must rush out and get vaccinated.  Funny that there are more infections among VACCINATED Americans than among unvaccinated.  Something ain’t right here, folks.   Add to that the fact that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says that mRNA vaccines for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu could be approved for widespread use by next month.  Pushing, pushing, pushing!
  80. 2021 Saturday I: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3582 what with a $12 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 16, 18, 30, 32, 38, and Mega 05.  Out of 97,148 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,413 apiece.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #868 with a jackpot of $199 million up for grabs: 01, 21, 22, 34, 47, and Powerball 04.  Out of 83,515 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $44,999.
  81. 2022 Sunday: IF things do not change over the next two election cycles, we may need to become friendly with the Chi-Coms.  I remember when the country was committed to being the best whereas now, we are ripping ourselves apart, thanks in large part to Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, and other of our enemies’ machinations.  Race is the Achilles heel of the United States and if our enemies continue noodling away at the seams, at some point, the nation is going to explode.  Add to that the fact that we cannot trust our elected leaders who all seem to be in the pay of Beijing and one can see the old maxim is true: the capitalists will sell the communists the rope with which the communists hang the capitalists.  Personally, I think it’s too late and my family and I are considering relocating to Ireland as a safe haven from the looming storm.  What is the point in remaining in country that is ripping itself to shreds?  Let me know what you all think.  Thanks- Chef Elmer K.

This artwork is #0908 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Central Coast.”  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:

After the Beach Boys went through starts and fits back in the 1960s over Brian Wilson’s “Smile” project, an abbreviated form “Smiley Smile” hit record store shelves on September 16, 1967 (see Monday, May 23, 2022) and since it was nowhere near the project envisioned by composer Brian Wilson, it was considered a flop.  Well, years later, Brian Wilson said, “Screw it,” and relaunched the entire project with a series of live performances and a live album culled from the performance.  “Brian Wilson Presents Smile” came out on September 28, 2004, and is a mind-blowing, joyous project to behold.  NO ONE in his, her, or its right mind questions the fact that Brian Wilson is not an innovative, musical genius, certainly not anyone with sufficient gray matter, that’s for sure.  We hope you will seek this album out and that you will add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended music- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[vi] Both of President Donald J. Trump’s two court picks Neil Gorsuch (#113) and Brett Kavanaugh (#114) have voted against the president who nominated them more often than they have not- just like Associate Justice Kennedy!  What is it about Republican picks?

[vii] Regarding the Russians and election interference, what the f**k else is new?  They have been doing this sort of crap since Josef Stalin was running the country.

004. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JANUARY 04, 2022

66. 2021 Monday K: Mayor Muriel Bowser, the horrible woman who runs Washington, D.C., called out the National Guard to be prepared for ‘trouble’ when hundreds of thousands and possibly a million or more Trump supporters arrive in the nation’s capital on Wednesday. She could care less that her beloved Antifa and Black Lives Matter mobs riot in the streets, accosting anyone they suspect of being a Trump supporter where they stand.

  51. 2017 Tuesday: Republican lawmakers launch their first bid- under the incoming Trump administration to repeal the Affordable Care Act.   President-elect Donald J.

  53. 2019 Thursday: In Rancho Santa Fe, California, the former 14th U.S. Secretary of Defense Harold Brown died at age 91.  A Democrat, he served under President Jimmy Carter from 01-21-1977 to 01-20-1981.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that the government shutdown could last for months, maybe even years.  Elsewhere, Democrats are putting together their talking points for the new congress when the world sees the tape of Rashida Tlaib saying ‘we’re going to go to Washington, D.C. and impeach that mother-f**ker’ referring to President Donald J. Trump.  What a disgusting human being this skank Tlaib is.  Strip her of citizenship and deport her to Gaza City.
  54. 2020 Saturday: Following the droning of Iranian General Qassim Soleimani, Democrats are screaming and crying of dreadful things to come and warning that President Trump is usurping powers not meant for the president but for Congress.  Oh, well.

Trump will be dead in a few days.  Lovely people, lovely, time to nuke them.   Anyhow, Israel slaps back at the Iranians for saying their country is trying to engineer a way by which the Trump administration will go to war with the jihadist Islamic republic. 
  56. 2021 Monday A: Pope Francis (another lovely human being) criticizes those who have gone on holiday so as to escape the authoritarian COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions imposed on them by fascist leaders.  Pope Francis- please, STFU.  Next, Mexican President Lopez Obrador offers WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange asylum following a British judge declaring he will NOT be extradited to the United States to face trial.  President Trump- pardon this man.  Elsewhere, following the Tel-Cos cuts to the BIG THREE Chi-Com telecommunications companies- China Mobile Ltd., China Telecom Corp., and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd., Chi-Com oil majors may undergo delisting on the NYSE.  About time the communist country faced punishment for their innumerable crimes.
  57. 2021 Monday B: Things in Georgia are getting crazy what with the state government doing everything to defy President Trump in his quest for redress over the corrupt and fraudulent election on November 3.  A phone call between the 45th president and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is leaked by the secretary himself in an effort to make the president look bad.  While Secretary Raffensperger continues calling it the ‘most secure election in history,’ anyone who watched the testimony before a Georgia senate subcommittee this past week on OAN understands that it was anything but.  The lieutenant governor of the Peach State- Geoff Duncan- leapt onto Trump’s back by accusing President Trump of trying to steal the election.  This led California Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu- another tool of the Chi-Coms[iv]– to send a referral to the FBI to prosecute the president for trying to engineer election fraud.  When the bodies begin dropping, Congressman, you will have only yourself to blame, you little c***sucker.   
  58. 2021 Monday C: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden says he will replace the inaugural parade with a short walk to the White House.  Meanwhile, to the dismay of all, Arkansas GOP Senator Tom Cotton says, ‘contesting the election is beyond the powers of Congress.’  Looks like “Cocaine Mitch” got to you, senator.  Sad to see you cross over to the DARK SIDE.  Elsewhere, another RINO Senator Marco Rubio says that ‘both Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock are unqualified to serve in the U.S. Senate.’  We agree.  However, recent polls show both Democrats with a 51-47 percent lead over both Republicans.  C’est la vie.
  59. 2021 Monday D: A Harvard space expert says, ‘the Earth has been visited, monitored by alien life.’  We wish some of that alien life would show up right about now and wipe out the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, the Russians, Venezuelans, Cubans, North Koreans, the Democratic Party, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the Fake News Media.  How about it?  Meanwhile, the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams says that ‘mitigation efforts are essential’ what with the arrival of the new strain of the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Meanwhile, the U.S. eyes half-doses of the Moderna vaccine in order to hasten the roll-out of the anti-viral.   Elsewhere, the IRS says the executors of the Prince estate cut its worth by 50-percent.  Not good.
  60. 2021 Monday E: Newsmax reports that after a pastor in an East Texas church found a thug hiding in his house of worship for whom law enforcement was searching, the reverend drew his gun on the man but was quickly disarmed by the POS who then shot him dead, wounded two others, and then stole the vehicle and sped away. 
  61. 2021 Monday F: Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins another term as speaker by a vote of 220 for her while 192 voted for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.  The aged speaker whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist has the slimmest majority in history, a ‘majority’ of 10 seats. 
  62. 2021 Monday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 85,555,275 confirmed cases, +570,221, 1,849,949, confirmed deaths, +8,827, and 48,058,025 confirmed recoveries, +280,467.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,933,546 confirmed cases, up 337,286 from yesterday’s reporting, 355,836 confirmed deaths, UP 2,527, and 9,351,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 127,459.
  63. 2021 Monday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,444,466 confirmed cases, 26,638 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,049 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 258,557 confirmed cases, 3,524 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Louisiana: currently, they have 322,881 confirmed cases, 7,585 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 445,845 confirmed cases, 3,435 confirmed deaths, and 390,287 confirmed recoveries.
  64. 2020 Monday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,223.89, DOWN 382.59 points (-1.25%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,698.45, DOWN 189.45 points (-1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,700.65, DOWN 55.42 points (-1.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,948.00 per troy oz., +1.40 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.42 per troy ounce, +0.051 (+0.19%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,083.70 per troy oz, +12.20 (+1.14%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.0095 (+0.27%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,391.20 per troy oz, -62.60 (-2.55%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.33 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.94. 
  65. 2021 Monday J: Indiana announces it will host the entire NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.  Meanwhile, the Trump administration announces that a breakthrough between Qatar and other Arab Persian Gulf states has been reached in patching up their quarrel.  Elsewhere, USAF personnel in Germany begin receiving their vaccinations for the Chi-Vi.  Finally, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, labels NBC’s Chuck Todd’s barrage on him while the senator was appearing on his Sunday show as highly ‘unprofessional’ which it was.
  66. 2021 Monday K: Mayor Muriel Bowser, the horrible woman who runs Washington, D.C., called out the National Guard to be prepared for ‘trouble’ when hundreds of thousands and possibly a million or more Trump supporters arrive in the nation’s capital on Wednesday.  She could care less that her beloved Antifa and Black Lives Matter mobs riot in the streets, accosting anyone they suspect of being a Trump supporter in the streets.  Mobs such as what we just mentioned are what keeps Chief Justice John Roberts of the United States Supreme Court trembling in his bed at night.  Meanwhile, President Trump held a massive rally in Georgia today in support of Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue.  Elsewhere, outgoing Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos urges Congress to reject the policies of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his consort, Kooky Kamala Harris, should these two losers become president and vice-president.   
  67. 2021 Monday L: The Pentagon says the USS aircraft carrier Nimitz and her accompanying flotilla will remain on station in the Persian Gulf following all of the threats against President Donald J. Trump, as well as Trump administration officials, spilling out of the foul mouths of the Iranian leadership.  We hope to see them nuked before much longer.  Meanwhile, the CIA’s new recruitment website seeks to diversify the agency.  Should have been done decades ago…speaking of the Central Intelligence Agency, a private cybersecurity company, FireEye, says the Russian cyberattack on numerous targets in the United States occurred within the United States.  Not good.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘communist China and North Korea’ are President Trump’s ‘unfinished business.’ 
  68. 2021 Monday M: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s first major act picking up the gavel again is to force ALL House members to use BS gender neutral terms so as NOT to hurt anyone’s feelings.  Wow.  Really important there, almost makes one long for getting nuked by the Chi-Coms to stop stupidity such as this.  The Reverend Franklin Graham blasts “Mumbles” Pelosi for doing this.  Meanwhile, the state of Georgia in a big show says, ‘it’s going to investigate charges of voter fraud and suppression in the two run-off races taking place TOMORROW.’  Amazing.   Elsewhere, the United States Marine Corps begins preparing for conflict with the Chi-Coms by conducting island warfare exercises.
  69. 2022 Tuesday: We encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever scurrilous goings-on are occurring today as the Chi-Coms continue trying to force their Manchurian candidate “Pro-China Joe” Biden and Manchurian candidate #2 Kooky Kamala Harris into office at the expense of the nation.  Stick around and discover WTF the communists-socialists are up to today.

KKK. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women. He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. What a worthless POS.

212. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JULY 31, 2021:

President Andrew Johnson; U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justices Owen Josephus Roberts and Anthony Kennedy; Apollo 15, Electric Light Orchestra featuring Hugh McDowell, R.E.M. featuring Bill Berry, and the Rolling Stones featuring Mick Jagger and Keith Richard:

  13. 1809 Monday: The first working railroad track in America begins today, a wooden track for horse-drawn wagon-cars, again in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
  14. 1849 Tuesday: Benjamin Chambers patents the breech-loading cannon.

  16. 1914 Friday: Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm II threatens ‘war’ if the Russian army does not immediately begin mobilizing; the nation did this to protect German ally, Austro-Hungary in its attack on Russian ally, Serbia.

  29. 1945 Tuesday: Pierre Laval, premier of the pro-Nazi Vichy government surrendered to U.S. authorities in Austria; he was turned over to France which later tried the man and then executed him. Elsewhere, the 74thS.

  37. 1960 Sunday: Founder of the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad, calls for a ‘black state.’[iii] (Note- wasn’t the nation of Liberia created to be the first ‘black state?’).  The sad thing is, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted the American people to be integrated, intermixed, and one harmonious people.  That was his dream so anything contrary to that dream is nothing more than bullshit and what’s even worse, six decades later America-haters would be trying to tear it all asunder.
  38. 1961 Monday: Israel welcomes its 1,000,000-immigrant arrival on this date. Elsewhere, the first tie in an All-Star Game major league baseball history took place when officials stopped the game in the 9th inning due to rain at Boston’s Fenway Park.  Meanwhile, IBM introduced its first Selectric typewriter on this date with its distinctive “typeball.”

  61. 2018 Tuesday: The 104thS. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to replace 99th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement. He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later. Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.  Little did they know they would not have to worry about that.[vi] Meanwhile, Facebook announces a major moment of virtue-signaling as it announces it ‘removed Russian-linked accounts that are attempting to interfere in the November 2018 Elections.’[vii] 
  62. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor. Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  63. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women. He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him. (For more information on these felons, please see <https://www.politico.com/states/california/story/2020/03/27/newsom-grants-clemency-to-26-including-man-who-stabbed-elderly-woman-to-death-1269447&gt;).
  64. 2020 Friday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 17,321,394 confirmed cases, UP by 212,059 cases, 673,822 confirmed deaths, UP by 50,021 deaths, and 10,155,026 confirmed recoveries, UP by 154,288 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,625,180 confirmed cases, UP by 62,570 new cases, 155,246 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,201 new deaths, and 2,262,974 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,679 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  65. 2020 Friday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 493,588 confirmed cases, UP 8,086 cases, 9,005 confirmed deaths, UP by 96, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,989 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,226 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  66. 2020 Friday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,428.32, UP 114.67 points (+0.44%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,745.27, UP 157.46 points (+1.49%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,271.12, UP 24.90 points (+0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,973.30 per troy oz., +10.50 (+0.53%) while the price of SILVER is $24.63 per troy ounce, +0.414 (+1.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $919.70 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.09) while the price of COPPER is $2.86 per pound, -0.0085 (-0.30%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.43 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.40%).  Currently, one dollar U.S. = 6.97 yuan.  Meanwhile, the U.S. unemployment rate has dropped from 13.3-percent in June to 11.1-percent in July.
  67. 2020 Friday D: Rasmussen polling has President Donald J. Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent. Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
  68. 2021 Saturday: Friends, here we are, a Saturday.  As a loyal Democrat, I am troubled by much of what is going on…my party once fought back against tyranny now we ARE tyranny.  NO more lockdowns, NO more COVID-19 lies, hydroxychloroquine does indeed work, and anyone who claims that it doesn’t or that never-ending lockdowns work needs to have their heads examined…by a Chi-Com shrink.

“You and Me in the Jungle” is indeed a Wild Turkey album, one that came out on February 12, 2007.  A band with a fabled history, the Turk can rock with the best of them and boy do they.  As always, the band delivers powerhouse performances going all the way back to the 1970s which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to their growing library of rock and roll music.  We believe you will be glad you did.  Thank you.

[i] We plan on promoting the music of the Move, Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne after we wrap up Supertramp.  Stay with us.

[ii] We definitely look forward to doing the music of R.E.M. at some point in the next five years.

[iii] Let’s give him Puerto Rico. 

[iv] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[v] Hillary was raising money for a long, long time.  Too bad she wasn’t a better candidate and too bad Barack Hussein Obama didn’t do a better job of helping her.

[vi] Both of President Donald J. Trump’s two court picks Neil Gorsuch (#113) and Brett Kavanaugh (#114) have voted against the president who nominated them more often than they have not- just like Associate Justice Kennedy!  What is it about Republican picks?

[vii] Regarding the Russians and election interference, what the f**k else is new?  They have been doing this sort of crap since Josef Stalin was running the country.

He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him. (For more information on these felons, please see <https://www.politico.com/states/california/story/2020/03/27/newsom-grants-clemency-to-26-including-man-who-stabbed-elderly-woman-to-death-1269447>).
  63. 2020 Friday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 17,321,394 confirmed cases, UP by 212,059 cases, 673,822 confirmed deaths, UP by 50,021 deaths, and 10,155,026 confirmed recoveries, UP by 154,288 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,625,180 confirmed cases, UP by 62,570 new cases, 155,246 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,201 new deaths, and 2,262,974 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,679 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  64. 2020 Friday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 493,588 confirmed cases, UP 8,086 cases, 9,005 confirmed deaths, UP by 96, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,989 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,226 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,428.32, UP 114.67 points (+0.44%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,745.27, UP 157.46 points (+1.49%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,271.12, UP 24.90 points (+0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,973.30 per troy oz., +10.50 (+0.53%) while the price of SILVER is $24.63 per troy ounce, +0.414 (+1.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $919.70 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.09) while the price of COPPER is $2.86 per pound, -0.0085 (-0.30%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.43 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.40%).  Currently, one dollar U.S. = 6.97 yuan.  Meanwhile, the U.S. unemployment rate has dropped from 13.3-percent in June to 11.1-percent in July.
  66. 2020 Friday D: Rasmussen polling has President Donald J. Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent. Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#ST0001.1s Rites of Passage #19 07-02-2020 (400)

 

Roger Hodgson released his third solo album, a live effort, “Rites of Passage,” on August 08, 1997.  The album featured 12 tracks culled from throughout his Supertramp and solo career and is a true joy to hear.  Joining the musician on this stirring album are Andrew Hodgson (drums), Mikhail Graham (guitars), Rich Stanmyre (bass), John Helliwell (saxophone), Jeff Daniel (keyboards). And one or two others.  Following the release of the artist’s second album, “Hai-Hai,” he was set to go out on tour but week before he and his band were to leave, he suffered a fall that damaged both wrists.  While we never understand why a musician won’t bring in another guitarist as long as he can sing, it is good that he finally did make it onto the road as this album demonstrates what a capable and talented artist he is.  Please, seek it out and add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did.
