  48. 2014 Monday: The U.S. Treasury is issuing rules to hinder companies from moving their headquarters outside the country to save on taxes; the rules may affect pending deals, such as Burger King’s plan to move to Canada after merging with Tim Horton’s restaurant chain.  Meanwhile, the United States and five Arab nations launched airstrikes against the Islamic State group- aka Daish- in Syria waves of planes and Tomahawk cruise missiles against an array of targets.

Trump.  Roast in hell, Senator.
  52. 2018 Saturday: At a military parade in Ahvaz, Iran, four gunmen open fire on Revolutionary Guard troops marching past killing at least 25 onlookers in the melee.  They are fighting for freedom in the totalitarian dictatorship of Islamist Iran. 
  53. 2019 Sunday: Following yet another leak in which an unnamed White House military aide- later identified at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman[iv]– said that ‘Donald Trump spoke with the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky about investigating “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s son, Hunter[v], and his financial shenanigans in that former Soviet republic,’ President Trump says, ‘Yeah, I did that.’  He explained the phone call, one he identified as ‘perfect’ and which many others did as well, yet the Democrats would use this event as the catalyst for their failed impeachment of the 45th president after the New Year.
  54. 2020 Tuesday: Utah Senator Mitt Romney came out this morning and announced that he would support President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, the one to replace deceased liberal icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ‘as long as he or she is a strict constructionist.’   Conservatives want NO judicial activism which means they want judges who will APPLY the law rather than to CREATE the law or to look at supreme court rulings in OTHER countries for guidance as many liberals have said they do.  Meanwhile, voters continue demanding that former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden release his list of potential Supreme Court justices, an action he continually opposes.  Everyone believes disgruntled gubernatorial loser Stacey Abrams is at the top of his list.   Regarding the court fight to come, mobs of angry Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other Marxist trash continue protesting outside the homes of Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham.  What a bunch of losers, blow them away with water cannons and reestablish law and order.  Finally, President Trump says he will announce his nominee on Saturday.
  55. 2020 Tuesday A: The city of Louisville, Kentucky, enacts a ‘state of emergency’ as it awaits the decision as to whether or not to charge the officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor with some sort of crime.  As you should recall, law enforcement entered Taylor’s apartment with a NO knock warrant and Taylor’s boyfriend opened fire with a handgun which drew reciprocal fire from the cops, killing Ms. Taylor in the process.  We expect they won’t be charged or fired for simply doing their jobs.  Taylor’s family was the recent recipient of a $12 million settlement.
  56. 2020 Tuesday B: NYPD Police Officer Biamadjie Angwang underwent arrest today on charges of spying for communist China.  Wow.  Almost every day, someone of Chinese extraction or descent is arrested for spying on behalf of China.  One can understand WHY the U.S. government rounded up and interned American Japanese during the early years of World War II.  We had better clean out this nest of Chi-Com snakes AND you DON’T think they commies aren’t colluding with the Democrats?  Please!  Speaking of police matters, Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot, reeling from the destruction of parts of her city which, she gave the green light to, is now going after ALL parking offenders and hammering them with fines.  Tax increases must come from somewhere!
  57. 2020 Tuesday C: A recent PEW Poll says that support for the communist Black Lives Matter movement has plummeted since June, from 67-percent to 55-percent and if you seek the truth, it is much lower than that seeing as how many people tremble in fear at expressing their true feelings.  We believe Black Lives Matter must be eradicated like eradicating venereal disease.  Speaking of mobs, mobs are penetrating the suburbs of New York City and going after citizens.  Keep it up, you ignorant dumb bastards, you continue pushing more and more voters into the Trump camp.
  58. 2020 Tuesday D:  British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announces the rollback of the lifting of restrictions seeing as how cases of the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever-Flu are going back UP.  Thank you, Chi-Coms for infecting the world.  It is time the world returns to the Two-China Policy or better yet, recognize Taiwan as the LEGITIMATE China and the Chi-Coms as the CRIMINAL CHINA.
  59. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 31,444,163 confirmed cases, UP by 262,381 cases, 967,305 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,039 deaths, and 21,551,157 confirmed recoveries, UP by 250,656 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,968,226 confirmed cases, UP by 35,909 new cases, 203,446 confirmed deaths, UP by 464 new deaths, and 3,759,857 confirmed recoveries, UP by 36,282 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 (“Pro-China Joe” Biden says 200,000,000)- 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.
  60. 2020 Tuesday F: 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: 793,737 confirmed cases, 15,126 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 11,590 confirmed cases, 120 confirmed deaths, and 4,888 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 86,889 confirmed cases, 2,137 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: 455,938 confirmed number of cases, 32,690 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. PUT CUOMO ON TRIAL! 
  61. 2020 Tuesday G: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 193,374 confirmed cases, 1,285 confirmed deaths, and 136,780 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for those hidden tunnels the Hamas scum love using to penetrate Israel and kidnap its citizens, Mo!

  63. 2020 Tuesday H: Tucker Carlson continues reporting that questionable billionaires such as George Soros- the former Hungarian Nazi- continues funding as much of the anti-American behavior violent street mobs are committing on behalf of the Democratic Party and their masters in Beijing.  Last night, Mr. Carlson showed film of Soros and today, Carlson announced that other billionaires have rushed to Soros’ aid and that America’s billionaire class is among the real enemies we face as a FREE nation.   Our blogs are personally aware that Google CEO Sundar Pichai- a very wealthy man- allegedly works on behalf of the Chi-Coms and does everything he can to stifle free speech not only in the United States but around the rest of the Free World, too.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vii]   
  65. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 383,560 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 20,518 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xii]

[xiii]    Let us look at one other Kentucky: $2.963.  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- Iceland: $7.357 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,792,180,393,291 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia 1 with $180 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.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As everyone continues asking the extremely pertinent question as to WHERE the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is, today is Day No. 180 for this sham ‘vice president’ to be in charge of the absolute calamity befalling the border and Day No. 87 since her sole visit to the border.  “Kooky,” where oh where art thou?  Do you job, skank.  Next, here are the numbers for the CRISIS occurring on the border as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost of caring for the human garbage for just this day: $538,977,792.  Second, here is the cost of caring for these Third World invaders for the year so far: $289,854,095,360.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have swarmed into the U.S. this year: 2,970,772, rapidly approaching 3 flipping million trash.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE for the shocking numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the U.S. as we speak, sucking away at the American taxpayers’ teats: 36,970,772. [xvi] (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).
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador gave Joe Biden a verbal poke in the eye today when he said, “Enough talk.  It’s time to do something on the border” as our southern neighbor is being overrun with the dregs of the Third World.

  72. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– The Mormon church is going to require all attendees at its services to wear masks as the Chi-Com virus cases continue to skyrocket.   Meanwhile, in Congress, hearings are underway to determine the extent of damage being done to America’s children via mask and Chi-Vi vaccine mandates.  Elsewhere, TikTok bans podcaster Megan McGlover for questioning Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.  Ms. McGlover happens to be a BLACK woman and yet, the Chi-Com spy app closed her down.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.95 (2) AstraZeneca $58.74 (3) Johnson & Johnson $163.93 (4) BioNTech $339.26 (5) Moderna $440.72.  Yes, the HAITIAN INVASION folks don’t have to take the vaccines, nor do they have to show any form of being COVID-19 free.  However, the Biden regime continues pushing vaccines for everyone as well as boosters.  IF you want to know WHY, look at the fact that the regime just bought one-billion doses of the vaccine to distribute worldwide.  The Benjamins are going to be flowing back into the pockets of every elected Democrat and RINO politician.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $85.27 (2) General Dynamics: $193.75 (3) Boeing: $216.98 (4) Lockheed Martin: $341.73 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $348.52.
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $34.85 (2) DuPont: $68.27 (3) Honeywell: $217.02 (4) 3M: $179.84 (5) Teijen: $1,597.00.
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $113.78 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.22 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $26.55.
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Joe Biden News I– As Joe Biden continues having problems getting his faulty agenda shoved through to fruition, he brought in Democrats from both the House and Senate to bust some balls to get the bogus $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill passed.  Screw him.  Meanwhile, as ‘Rome’ continues to burn down all around him, the usurper in the White House took another slap to the face today when new polls show that his numbers have dropped to 43-percent approval which means in truth, they are between 23-33-percent.  NO one likes Joe, not even his fellow Democrats.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden called French President Emanuel Macron today, sucked up, apologized for driving the economic dagger in the neck of France over doing a backdoor deal with Australia and Great Britain to supply nuclear submarine technology Downunder, and in so doing, the French have agreed to return their ambassador to Washington, D.C.  Still, Joe has problems what with the House Republicans filing articles of impeachment against the feeble dictator.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News I– Politico finally verifies that the Hunter Biden laptop story is indeed true as reported all along.  The New York Post- the legendary newspaper that broke the story last year- lampoons Politico by saying ‘we’re shocked.’  Meanwhile, the Democrats are upset that without help from the GOP, their efforts to defund the police and to then replace them with federal police are going into the crapper.  
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News II– We learned today that former President George W. Bush is going to support the re-election bid of soon-to-be-former Rep. Liz “The Loser” Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large congressional district.  Sadly, we know WHY President Bush is doing this because his former vice president is her father but still- haven’t the RINOs learned their lessons yet?  Average Republicans do not like RINOs.  It would be better if RINOs just changed the ‘R’ after their names to a ‘D.’  Speaking of Dems, after House Democrats yanked funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile protection system from the budget reconciliation bill, Senate Dems are returning the billion-dollar aid package as a standalone bill.  Thank God NOT ALL of the Democrats are vicious Anti-Semites.  
  81. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News III– In some shocking news today- if true- the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services won’t confirm the employment of Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams who served in the Trump administration.  Wow.  Is this the path down which, we want to go, Democrats?   Speaking of Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is trying to repair the growing rift between President Trump and failed (and sometime Trumper) Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell.  Senator Graham, there is NO repairing the rift- Senator McConnell is like President George W. Bush: a LOSER.
  82. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News IV– Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax today that low polling for Joe Biden shows that citizens of her state have had enough of the usurper in the White House.  Meanwhile, another Iowan- Senator Joni Ernst- revealed her new bill- the Prime Cuts Act- ‘Cuts’ standing for Cu Unnecessary Transactions and Spending with which to clean up the bloated federal government.  We wish you luck with your bill.  Finally, it appears that Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin is leading Democrat and former Clinton ‘bagman’ Terry McAuliffe in the running.
  83. 2021 Wednesday S: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– A new report says that murders in the United States jumped by 29-percent in 2020, the BIGGEST increase since record-keeping began.  In other crime-related news, St. Louis, Missouri, attorneys Mark and Patricia McCloskey face the loss of their law licenses, even after Governor Mike Parson pardoned them.  This should tell everyone that leftist bar associations work against the rights of their members if their politics are NOT WOKE enough.
  84. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3597 what with a $19 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 04, 06, 26, 39, 41, and Mega 12.  Out of 110,890 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $37,267.  The winning ticket was sold at Esquire Liquor in Glendale, CA 91203.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #888 with a jackpot of $490 million up for grabs: 20, 40, 47, 55, 63, and Powerball 05.  Out of 117,939 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $245,101 apiece.  The Washington state Super Lotto Draw with $2.8 million apiece, 06, 15, 17, 22, 24, and 33.  Out of 8,172 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FIVE numbers out of SIX for a prize of $1,000 apiece.
  85. 2022 Thursday:  Yesterday, I was discussing the 1979 Vela Incident, the atomic detonation in the southern South Atlantic that occurred on this very day.  NO one know who the culprit was, but we suspect it was Taiwan.  The Chi-Coms on the mainland have been making a great deal of noise about retaking Taiwan but there is no way, the island of Formosa is ever going to return to the fold.  After all, Taipei is the actual ruler of the mainland having been forced out by massive numbers of crazed, underfed, and out-of-control communist mobs back in 1949.  Until the United States abandoned Taiwan in favor of currying favor with the Chi-Coms back in the 1970s with much of the world following suit, Taiwan was the true heir of mainland China.  Once the world abandoned the island in favor of the mainland and chucked the Two-China Policy onto the garbage, the Taiwanese have been left to fend for themselves.  As I said yesterday, I suspect Taiwan is prepared for the Chi-Coms to invade as others of my colleagues have said the same.  Others have said that vast drone swarms would also disable, cripple, and then lead to the destruction of any invasion fleet bold enough to cross water five times the distance of what Adolf Hitler and the Nazi war machine faced in 1940.  Sure, the Chi-Coms can fly into Taiwan airspace and circle their vessels around the island in a threatening manner but when push comes to shove, most dictators are cowardly thugs and Xi Jinping is no frigging different.  Let me know your mind- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

In some ways, Cheap Trick was struggling to keep up with the times- and the 1980’s were a cauldron of change for many bands.  Many bands that originated in the 1960’s was either struggling to keep up or had thrown in the towel and would return in another decade or two to become oldies acts.   Cheap Trick had the advantage of coming out of the mid-1970’s and burst onto the scene with their first album as the saviors- along with the Cars and a few others- of rock-and-roll.  On November 17, 1986- with yet another different producer in two- the band released, “The Doctor.”  NO massive hits on this album so the record company was pulling out its hair seeking a rebirth of the 1970’s success.  Sadly, it was not found here.  Once again, the lineup remains Robin Zander (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and Jon Brant (bass, backing vocals), along with a keyboardist and a backup vocalist.  Still, we love this album and know that longtime readers of the AICPENDBLOG.COM will love it, too.  Seek it out ASAP.

[i] No clue as to whether we will ever do the music of Whitesnake, but you can bet we will do them prior to EVER doing the garbage of Adam Levine- the Illustrated Man- and his s-hole band, Maroon Five.  Perhaps sometime in the next 50 years?

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

[iv] Lt. Col. Vindman and his ‘testimony’ in the build-up to impeachment has to be one of the most embarrassing episodes in which, a uniformed member of the U.S. military has ever engaged, and we wished that he had been stationed on the North Slope of Alaska or on Midway Island for the remainder of his career.  What a scumbag. 

[v] Hunter Biden, known crack head, crooked financial guy who followed his daddy around the world sucking up money from the Chi-Coms, the Ukrainians, and anyone else from whom he could needs to answer loads of questions about HIS activities, both on behalf of himself and his dad.

[xvi] Folks, since the inception of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day back in 2009, we said back then that the numbers of Untermensch in the U.S. back then was between 35-50 million illegal aliens whereas now, we believe that when you take into account the current invasion combined with the numbers of illegals who have been running amok since the 1960s onward in the Continental United States as well as in Hawaii and Alaska, there is between 75-100 million illegals.  We must round this scum up, imprison them, and then launch an Operation Wetback II like the one back in the 1950s where we scoop them all up and dump them in Mexico.  They are NOT our problem, nor will we allow the usurper in the White House to make it our problem.  The time to resist is NOW.

  50. 2012 Thursday: A report on the nuclear program of Iran released by the IAEA, highlights concern over Iran’s nuclear program as the country reportedly has doubled its number of centrifuges as the Fordow facility.  Meanwhile, Mitt Romney launched his fall campaign for the White House with a rousing, personal speech to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., proclaiming that America needs “jobs, lots of jobs.”  Finally, in communist China at the Xiaojiawan coalmine, a large blast kills 26 miners outright with another 21 missing.  The blast actually occurred the previous day but today is our time.  There were 154 miners working at the time when carbon monoxide ignited and devastated the mining complex.  The eventual death toll would rise to 43 with probably more lost in the disaster.  
  51. 2013 Friday: Off the coast of the Aleutian Islands, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake strikes.  Meanwhile, in Shanghai, communist China, 15 people die in a mishap in which an ammonia leak at a cold storage plant goes unnoticed. 
  52. 2014 Saturday: In the face of growing evidence of Russian-Chechen involvement in eastern Ukraine thanks to evidence showing military equipment and troops, the European Union proposes stiffer sanctions against Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  Putin denies all charges while calling for the ‘independence of the region.’
  53. 2015 Sunday: In response to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s desire to change the nation’s constitution so that Japanese defense forces can aid allied nations when Japan, itself, is not under attack, protesters gather in the streets outside the parliament building in opposition.
  54. 2016 Tuesday: The Guardian reports that candidate Donald J. Trump is considering a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Nieto Pena tomorrow prior to his giving an immigration speech in Phoenix, Arizona, in the coming week.  Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wins big in the statewide primary and will move ahead to the November election.
  55. 2017 Wednesday: The former Hurricane Harvey completed a U-turn in the Gulf of Mexico and rolled ashore for the second time in six days, hitting southwestern Louisiana as a tropical storm with heavy rains and winds of 45 mph.
  56. 2018 Thursday: Having been arrested a week or so back, police arrest Ugandan pop star and politician Bobi Wine as he attempts to escape the country. 
  57. 2019 Friday:  Australia downgrades the future of the Great Barrier Reef to ‘very poor’ due to climate change and environmental damage. 
  58. 2020 Sunday: Following last night’s violent riots and deadly shooting in Portland, Oregon, law enforcement officials and the crackpot Mayor Ted Wheeler take questions from the reporters.  The mayor says he wants to ‘end violence’ in his city and claims that he will ‘take help from anyone to end the violence in his city,’ violence he and his far-left, socialist buddies seem to want to continue around the clock.  At the same time, Mayor Wheeler blasts President Donald J. Trump for comments he made about the crappy job the city’s highest civil servant for being such a worthless putz.   He claims the president has created ‘hate and division.’  Meanwhile, Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf says ‘all options’ are on the table for ending the violence afflicting major and mid-sized American cities facing increased violence on their streets, violence we allege the Chi-Coms are financing through their lackeys in the Democratic Party, what we now call the Democratic-Socialist Party of America, the DSPA.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden pops out of his hidey hole and denounces the violence afflicting the United States.  Uh, okay Joe, okay.  Finally, a shooting outside a pancake house in Chicago today claims one life and wounds several others.  It was a drive-by shooting in which an SUV pulled by the foodservice establishment and opened fire.  Democratic Catchphrase of the Day: “Trump is dividing the nation!”  Reprobate Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, tells Dana Bash, aka Old Horse Face, that “Donald Trump is fanning the flames of violence.”  Hmmm…
  59. 2020 Sunday A: Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe informs Maria Bartiromo on the Fox News Channel that although ‘Russia remains a problem, the real threat emanates from communist China,’ land of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The fact that the Democrats continue dismissing the threat of communist China while constantly braying about ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ as the imminent threat tells observant readers and contributors that what the Democrats claim others are doing is what they, themselves, are guilty of doing which means the Dems are colluding with the Chi-Coms to defeat Donald Trump and to deliver the United States into the hands of Chairman Xi.  Next, in the United States, we have arrived at a startling statistic: so far this year, 37 police officers have been killed in the line of duty and another 700 injured. 
  60. 2020 Sunday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days.  Sorry.
  61. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 217,866,804 confirmed cases, +650,990, 4,522,940 confirmed deaths, +7,870 and 194,712,254 confirmed recoveries, +589,864.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 39,945,431 confirmed cases, UP 279,916 from yesterday’s reporting, 656,377 confirmed deaths, UP 1,688, [vii] and 30,940,209 confirmed recoveries, UP 113,860.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [viii]   
  62. 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 337,689 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 66,419 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  63. 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: 4,346,741 confirmed cases, 65,814 confirmed deaths, and 2,273,567 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,277,385 confirmed cases, 44,553 confirmed deaths, and 2,339,765 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 62,949 confirmed cases, 589 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 561,568 confirmed cases, 6,594 confirmed deaths, and 245,910 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Wyoming: they have 74,756 confirmed cases, 835 confirmed deaths, and 69,198 confirmed recoveries. [ix]   
  64. 2021 Monday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,061,488 confirmed cases, 7,043 confirmed deaths, and 973,780 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Caribbean Netherlands, 196th locale on the list: 1,791 cases of the virus, 17 confirmed deaths and 1,754 confirmed recoveries. [x]     
  65. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,399.84, DOWN 55.96 points (-0.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,265.89, UP 136.39 points (+0.90%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,528.79, UP 19.42 points (+0.43%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.86 per barrel, -0.37 (-0.53%).  The price of GOLD is $1,816.40 per troy oz., +4.20 (+0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $24.06 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.42%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,002.10 per troy oz, +0.00 (+0.00%) while the price of COPPER is $4.37 per pound, 0.00 -0.05%). [xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,481.98 per troy oz, -11.59 (-0.46%). [xii] The price of RHODIUM is $17,600.00 per troy oz., +200.00 (+1.15%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $770,000.00 per troy oz., -5,000.00 (-0.65%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,653.00 per USD/T, +32.25 (+1.23%).  [xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.11.     In Zambian Kwacha, one greenback equals 15.86 and in Zimbabwean Dollar, a buck equal 361.90 and in Afghan Afghani, one dollar equals 87.84 of theirs. [xiv]        
  66. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.398 per gallon, $2.943 in Florida, $4.070 in Hawaii, and $3.902 in Washington state. [xv] Let us look at one other location- Vermont: $3.086.  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- Latvia: $5.918 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,703,407,487,861 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  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 Bermuda, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Netherlands with $70 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.
  67. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The White House reports that within the past 24 hours, the U.S. military has been able to evacuate 1.2 thousand people.  Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st CD told Newsmax that ‘it’s likely the Pentagon had more than a head’s up on last Thursday’s ISIS-K suicide bombing at the Kabul airport.’  Speaking of this disaster, increasing numbers of Democrats are beginning to turn their backs on the usurper in the White House over his sheer stupidity in dealing with Afghanistan.  Rasmussen reports that 52-percent of the American people rate Joe Biden’s Afghan performance as POOR.   Rep. Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th CD, says the ‘evacuation mission must be extended.’  Rep. Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd CD, told Newsmax today that the ’U.S. is cowering to the Taliban following the terror group’s demands that the United States adheres to its deadline for their withdrawal.’  Prior to the commander in charge- General Austin S. Miller- proclaiming the ‘war is over’ in Afghanistan, Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, said, ‘it’s unclear if we will get all Americans out of the POS country.’  According to the general, we won’t.  The Pentagon says that the last U.S. military aircraft have left Afghanistan and that the war is now ‘over.’
  68. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, folks.  As much as it upsets our stomach to continually point out the deficiencies of the loser some claim is the ‘vice president,’ we are compelled to do it anyway.  Today is Day No. 159 since Joe Biden made “Kooky Kamala” Harris the so-called ‘border czar’ and Day No. 66 since her sole visit to the U.S.-Mexico border.  What can we say other than the fact that this woman is a complete loser?  It is what it is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion along the southern border and across the United States as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost of caring for these frigging illegal alien losers for just this day: $519,850,464.  Second, here is the cost of caring for these maggots for this year: $264,629,485,568.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have swarmed into our country just this frigging year: 2,712,240.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, we assure you, of the number of illegals roaming across the United States as we speak: 36,712,240.  (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).
  69. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Iran and Syria are proposing a mutually beneficial economic plan for the betterment of both nations seeing as the U.S. has imposed harsh sanctions on not only national leaders but the countries.   Eventually, we believe that Iran will spread across Iraq and into Syria to the Mediterranean where they most likely will establish a naval base.  Meanwhile, another member of the Axis of Evil- North Korea- is set to begin enriching plutonium yet again, giving the big, gnarly middle finger to the Biden regime.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization has opened an air bridge into Kabul, Afghanistan, to get medical supplies into the hellhole nation.  Finally, “Kooky Kamala” Harris visiting Vietnam laid flowers at the monument commemorating the shootdown of then-U.S. Navy flier, John McCain.  WTF is wrong with this stupid woman?
  70. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As COVID-19 cases continue to surge thanks to the importation of millions of UNSCREENED illegal aliens and refugees, McDonalds’ restaurants and other similar fast-food outlets are closing down indoor dining.  Meanwhile, Texas and Florida are stressing antibody treatments over forcing everyone to get the increasingly ineffective vaccines.
  71. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee, Democrat, is so upset with the harsh lockdowns destroying economic activity across the Silver State that he is switching to becoming a Republican.  That is correct, Mayor Lee blasted Governor Steve Sisolak, DS, and is now a member of the GOP.   In other harsh COVID-19 lockdown and restriction news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that ‘Trump hatred’ is preventing potential COVID-19 drug research and development.’  Amen, Senator, amen.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Education is pursuing five states that have mask bans in place in their schools.
  72. 2021 Monday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.76 (2) AstraZeneca $58.61 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.66 (4) BioNTech $345.00 (5) Moderna $370.69.  The reason we share these figures is so that the public understands the reason for the push behind the vaccine craze.  Everyone in government is feeding from the hog trough, getting big, fat, rich, and horribly wealthy while everyone else starves in the street.  NOT flipping good for the American people.
  73. 2021 Monday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.80 (2) General Dynamics: $199.19 (3) Boeing: $217.63 (4) Lockheed Martin: $362.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.62.  Folks, do you believe that the U.S. military is upset over leaving $85 billion of military equipment in Afghanistan?  Well, they most assuredly are NOT.  The reason for this is because the military industries will have to make more weapons of war for the military which means profits for these companies will continue to increase which means everyone in the Deep State and elected to government will be profiting from their stock dividends.  The classic money-go-round and the reason WHY the left hates President Donald J. Trump- he got in the way of their money.  God bless him.
  74. 2021 Monday M: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says that the U.S. ‘must either evacuated U.S. military abandoned in Afghanistan or bomb it.’ 
  75. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s approval ratings have dropped to 48-percent (which in the era of FAKE NEWS means they most likely are down around 29-percent.  Serves the usurper right).  Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling Joe Biden continues taking heat after the regime claimed it was taking intel from the Taliban to go after the plotters of last Thursday’s attack at HKIA in Kabul.  The world learned that the intel provided by the Taliban to the Bidenistas killed an Afghan interpreter and nine members of his family, including seven children.  Good Lord, Joe, you are a pathetic loser. 
  76. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– After Joe Biden and wife Jill met the returning slain U.S. military heroes from last Thursday’s terrorist attack at HKIA, Joe is taking incoming flak over him pushing up his cuff to look at his watch as the bodies were being brought in.  WTF is wrong with you, Joe, you can watch reruns of “Matlock” and “Colombo” anytime on TV.  Honor America’s slain military men and women you corrupt POS.  Newsmax reports that the dimwitted Joe Biden’s mindless comments are endangering Americans such as his recent bull crap, “What interest do we have in Afghanistan at this point with al-Qaida gone?  We went to Afghanistan with the express purpose of getting rid of al-Qaida in Afghanistan as well as Osama bin Laden.”  Joe, you are a moron, zip your lips.
  77. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– FEMA Director Deanne Criswell says that ‘after Hurricane Ida, the biggest concern for the federal government is COVID-19-slammed hospitals.’  (Note- the other day when Joe Biden was at a press conference with Director Criswell, the old fool couldn’t even say her name properly.  This man is an embarrassment for the country as his Number Two, “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- we would be better off with Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke in the U.S. Naval Observatory, and that guy is a drooling moron).
  78. 2021 Monday Q: Political News I– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell blasted Joe Biden’s hurried exit from Kabul by saying, ‘it’s worse than Saigon’ back in 1975.   Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that ‘words cannot describe the Afghan travesty.’   Worse, we learn today that U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken was vacationing in the Hamptons when the debacle in Afghanistan began.  What a loser.  We learned today that various U.S. businesses around the nation are lobbying to bring about the implosion of the Biden regime’s ‘infrastructure bill.’  Good.  The bill needs to go into the circular filing cabinet.
  79. 2021 Monday R: U.S. House of Representatives News I– One-hundred-and-three House Republicans are going to oppose any attempt by the Democrats to raise the debt ceiling yet again so the Dems can borrow billions and billions from communist China and other nations so they can fund ‘Joe Biden’s’ economic ‘plans.’  We wish you luck.
  80. 2021 Monday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Abortion providers are down on their knees sniveling to the United States Supreme Court to STOP the new Texas fetal heartbeat law.
  81. 2021 Monday T: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Democrats are celebrating as word came of conservative radio talk show host Marc Bernier who has a radio program in Daytona Beach, Florida.  Mr. Bernier was opposed to forced vaccinations so the tragic fact that COVID-19 took him out has caused legions of left-wing losers to dance around the maypole in celebration.  F**k them.  (Note- whatever happened to ‘my body, my choice’?)  Meanwhile, Joseph P. Kennedy II- oldest son of slain Senator Robert F. Kennedy- is opposed to the release of his convicted assassin, Sirhan B. Sirhan, age 77.
  82. 2021 Monday: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Colonial Williamsburg to highlight gay and tranny reenactments.  Elsewhere, the former 20-year-old mistress of then-President John F. Kennedy, Democrat, is going to share her story with the press.  In other WOKE news, a new video came to light in which a skanky-looking California teacher was bragging how without an American flag in her classroom, she cajoled a student into pledging allegiance to the LGBTQIA+ Homo flag.  That teacher needs to be shot.  We must stop this WOKE devastation of the country.  If or when the Chi-Coms take the country over, all this WOKE crap will go out the window and these WOKIES will either get with the program or will join us in the labor/reeducation camps.
  83. 2021 Monday V: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #878 with a jackpot of $332 million up for grabs: 03, 15, 45, 51, 61, and Power 08.  Out of 58,654 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of 15,080 apiece.
  84. 2022 Tuesday: Unlike my colleagues, I do my best to avoid crossing the line into spitefulness because calling others foul names accomplishes nothing.  Still, there are things I find problematic with my party such as the Mar-a-Lago raid.  That is causing more people to cross over to the GOP which is going to have disastrous consequences for Dems come November.  We shall monitor the situation.  Chef Itzi Nakamura.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release by the Beach Boys featured another archival release, a LIVE one from several top-quality shows from 1967: “Live Sunshine 1967” (12-08-2017).  For decades, if we wanted live Beach Boys shows from the group’s heyday- 1966 through 1979- we had to find vendors of bootlegs which was easy during the days of colored vinyl.  However, as time progressed, it became more difficult which is why we are so glad we are still alive half-a-century later.  We have two shows from Hawaii plus rehearsals, another from Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, White Plains, N.Y., and from other locales, all of which are a joy to behold.  We hope you find the necessary Joe Biden worthless greenbacks to pick up this amazing collection of concerts.  You will be extremely glad you did, that, we guarantee.

[iv]We most definitely should have done Whitesnake back during the time we did the music of Deep Purple, Elf, Rainbow, Ian Gillan, Ian Gillan Band, Richie Blackmore, and the rest of that offering but we failed to do so.  However, when we get around to doing Poison, Mȍtley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and other of the HAIR bands sometime within the next 10 years.  As for the first grouping of bands, we shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.  The only problem, we did the lineup at the Google Blogger blog we had for 11 years and that cocksucker Sundar Pichai, a POS Pakistani jihadist shut us down.  He will get his when conservatism reclaims the nation in the greatest revival since the post-Civil War era.

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

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

  68. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Here are the costs of the Afghan War: (1) 20 years, the longest U.S. war (2) U.S. military deaths: 2,448 (3) U.S. Military wounded: 20,719 (4) U.S. contractor deaths: 3,846 (5) direct costs: $2 trillion.  (6) Costs to 2050 for the American people: $6.5 trillion.  (Source: Newsmax).  (Note- the Western Roman Empire collapsed because (1) inability to control its borders (2) perpetual wars (3) never-ending political strife and (4) normalization of perversion, immorality, and loss of faith.  Sound like any country you might know?)  Meanwhile, former deputy CIA Director Mike Morell says that the collapse of Afghanistan is not an ‘intelligence failure’ but a ‘policy failure.’  Joe Biden is attempting to blame everyone else for his troubles than himself whereas President Harry S. Truman so famously said, “The buck stops here.”  Next, Politico stuck a journalistic dagger into the neck of dictator Joe Biden when they said his ‘chip on his shoulder’ is what caused the debacle the world is watching in Afghanistan as he would NOT listen to his generals.  In other Afghan-related news, at least seven desperate people are dead from falling several thousand feet from outbound aircraft at the Kabul airport.  Meanwhile, outside the White House, Afghan Americans are protesting the White House usurper by shouting, “THEY’RE KILLING OUR PEOPLE!”
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– today is Day No. 146 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 52 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Here are the numbers for illegal aliens and the cost of caring for them as provided by OAN.  First, the cost this day alone is: $652,723,151.  Next, here is the appalling cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country for just this year: $248,821,415,836.  Imagine the good that money could do for the American people and not the flotsam and jetsam of the Third World?  Next, here are the numbers of illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,555,525.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers for all time: 36,555,525.  Horrifying, simply horrifying.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks).

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

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0924 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “You Forgot My Tip.”  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:

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

202. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 21, 2022

Friends, we have said for years now that there is but one way in which this country can deal with the illegal alien invasion- militarize the southern border. We believe minefields, electrified fencing, razor wire, obstacles in the middle of the Rio Grande River right down the dividing line between Mexico and the United States must be emplaced.

[v]  
  59. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 307,366 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 96,712 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[vii]

[xi]       
  63. 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 over $4.321 per gallon, $2.983 in Florida, $4.081 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Colorado: $3.531.  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- Morocco: $4.455 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,549,227,505,742 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 South Korea, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Canada with $120 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 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Amazing as it might seem to inattentive readers, today is Day No. 120 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 26 since her one and only visit to the border just so she could say, “I’ve been to the border” (but sure as hell have not gone back nor will go back).   The American people deserve better than this cackling hen, this braying jackass, this cawing crow, this howling jackal, this gibbering hyena to be in charge of the most important job in the country: protecting the American people by securing the border from the dregs of the Third World yet ‘Willie Brown’s mattress’ won’t do her flipping job.  Below, you will see the statistics for the Biden Border tribulation as compiled by One America News:
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Thanks to OAN, here are the current stats for the Biden Border Holocaust: (1) Cost this Day for caring for the tidal wave rolling over us from the Third World: $563,965,120.  Just this day, people, imagine what good this money could do for the American people.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the filth from the Third World: $220,838,002,688.  Yes, this number is correct.  The Democrats would rather spend this money on foreign invaders than on those for whom they claim to care: women, girls, blacks, Latinos, gays, trannys, and Muslims.  Next, (3) here is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed into the U.S. year- 2,263,412.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE LOW ESTIMATE of illegals said to be in the United States: 36,263,412. [xv]  We disagree with this last number: since 2009 when the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day first began tapping out our initial posts, we estimated the number of illegals in the country as between 35-50 million.  However, fast forward 12 years, we believe that number is closer to 75-100 million illegals.  IF we deported all the illegals back to their ratholes, rents and mortgages would plummet, jobs would increase as would wages, our children, grand-children, and great-grand-children would receive better educations, crime would drop, and hospitals and medical centers would provide better service.  However when you have 75-100 million sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats, everything goes to hell.  ROUND THEM UP, IMPRISON THEM, BUILD THE WALL, AND THEN DEPORT THEM ALL.  Our nation is in danger of being overwhelmed by the castoffs of the world’s S-hole countries.
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district says that the Biden regime and the Democrats are ‘shirking their constitutional duty’ by not getting the border under control.   Speaking of the border, we learned today that cases of the Chi-Vi in the Rio Grande Valley are up by a shocking 900-percent.  Shut down the border.  NOW!
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the land of the Chi-Coms, a massive flood in the middle portion of the country has left dozens dead and tens of thousands homeless.  Sucks to be them.   Elsewhere, effete French President Emanuel Macron is calling for an investigation into whether Morocco is using Israeli Pegasus spyware to monitor his phone calls.  Speaking of France, Paris is launching its new controversial Chi-Vi vaccine passports across the nation- no shots, no participation in normal life.  Mark of the Beast?  Beginning to look that way, folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new poll from Trafalgar says that a vast majority of Americans believe taking the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu should be a matter of personal choice and is a matter of personal choice.  Yet Democrats continue trying to steamroll the American people into taking this questionable crap even when the federal VAERS website points out the thousands of deaths and healthcare crises associated with it.  (Yup, we expect the FBI will come banging on the door at some point).  Meanwhile, Liz Harrington- President Donald J. Trump’s spokesperson- said that ‘the Biden regime has NEVER sought help from President Trump on promoting the COVID-19/Chi-Com Flu vaccines.’  Hmmm.
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Here’s something truly fascinating: communist George Soros and Bill Gates have bought a major COVID-19 testing company.  Now, we can speculate as to why?  We believe it’s to help the Chi-Coms in their ongoing bid to collect the DNA of all Americans for future nefarious use.   Speaking of the vaccines, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is defending the rights of Americans to refuse the Bat Flu vaccines.  In other news related to the Wuhan Lab-generated pandemic, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has ‘lost his credibility.’  Good thing that Senator Rand Paul sent a request for a criminal referral against the diminutive doctor to the U.S. Department of Justice seeing as how Doc Fauci lied to Congress on more than one occasion.
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News-   Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers, Republican, is calling for a decertification of the 2020 Presidential Election as the evidence of massive voter fraud and corruption negates the election.  This is bombshell news, news that is sending Democrat politicians howling mad into the wilderness for 100 years.  What was certified has been proven to be inaccurate and the next step is for the Arizona House to submit their request to decertify the most corrupt election in the history of the United States and get the ball rolling to get usurper Joe Biden out of the White House and into an orange jumpsuit.    Likewise, Texas state Republicans are seeking to conduct their own audit of the 13th largest counties where electoral shenanigans occurred.
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: 2020 Election Audit– Meanwhile, as steam begins to build in Pennsylvania for an election audit in that crooked state, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, DS-PA, is doing everything he can to prevent voting machines and software from being turned over to Republican lawmakers.  IF this was the MOST SECURE election in the history of the country, then why NOT hand the requested data and devices over to the GOP?  There is so much information coming out of the Keystone State showing the election reeked of fraud that it would be a good thing to investigate the Democratic Party’s shenanigans.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden News I– Apparently, Joe Biden had some sort of ‘town hall’ in Ohio earlier today, one in which, he was incoherent as ever.  How long can this nightmare continue with a feeble-minded president who would rather offer ice cream to young girls than try to do his job?  What a national and global embarrassment.   It would be nice if they could sync his decrepit mind with the earpiece directing him.  Zombie!
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– In news we truly don’t believe, the Biden regime’s Department of Education has said it will ‘back off’ trying to stuff Criminal, uh, Critical Race Theory down the throats of America’s students.  Oh, really? 
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News I– Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, and Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, have co-authored a bill with which to protect ALL law enforcement officers from having to purchase liability insurance to protect themselves from civil lawsuits launched by thugs against them.  Next, Democrats are proposing a bill that will demand that all women ages 18-21 register for Selective Service, i.e., the draft.  Speaking of Democrats, a new poll says that ONLY 22-percent of Arizona Democrats would vote for Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the 2022 Democratic Party Primary.  This is because she seems to be a person of conscience who believes in following the dictates of the U.S. Constitution and not the loony tunes BS coming out of the Biden regime or out of the puckered puss of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi. 
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News II– How about some more Democrat hypocrisy: Iowa Rep. Cindy Axne, 3rd congressional district, swore she would ‘never accept corporate PAC money’ and now she has.  Wow.   Anyhow, she now is under increasing pressure from the voters of that great state either to honor her pledge or to step down and let someone else with more scruples to do the job.  Speaking of corrupt Democrats, Rep. Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district and known paramour of a Chi-Com agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, is under investigation for corruption, fraud, and abuse of office by using campaign funds for his and his wife’s personal use.  Orange jumpsuit time coming soon.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News III– A new Rasmussen poll says that a vast majority of Americans would rather see a probe into Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots than they do the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, the bogus ‘insurrection’ staged and most likely set in motion by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Speaking of the nonagenarian speaker, she booted TWO of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s picks for her shoddy January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots Select Committee: Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, and Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district which led an angry Leader McCarthy to pull ALL Republicans from the faux select committee.  Closet Democrat Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, went out there and blasted Leader McCarthy for playing politics.  What the hell do we have to do to send this bozo packing?   Anyhow, Rep. Cheney said that ‘McCarthy is undermining the select committee.’ 
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News IV– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani has launched a new legal defense fund, the “Freedom Fund” to help those beset by crooked politicians and attorneys seeking to do patriots wrong.  In other pressing political news, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY, says the ‘Republicans will play no part in raising the debt ceiling.   Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers are targeting colleges and universities doling out abortifacients to students.   Elsewhere, Lt. General (Ret.) Keith Kellogg and Brigadier General Robert Spalding (Ret.) say that current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley- a political hack if one ever existed- should step down from his post.  Milley is more concerned with fighting ‘white supremacism’ than he is in doing battle with the People’s Liberation Army in communist China.  What a disgrace.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Political News V– Republicans in Michigan have finally stripped Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of her COVID-19 emergency powers.  Speaking of “Gravel Gertie,” we learned today that the so-called hit team that was going to kidnap her and sell her to the Chi-Coms or Russians or whoever most likely was full of FBI agents and informants, so the question immediately arises- were these patriots entrapped by the feds?  Rather sounds as though they were… Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury said today that ONLY 6.5-percent of the $46 billion set aside to help Americans affected by COVID-19 to pay their rent has been utilized.  Folks, this is how it ALWAYS goes- money is stuffed into various programs that almost always seems to find its way back into the hip pockets of the nomenklatura, i.e., the Democrats and their lackeys.  Wow.  Next, that little milquetoast is at it again: fired Deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe says that the formal accusation of Trump ally Mr. Tom Barrack could ‘open a Pandora’s box for the 45th president.’  Uh-huh, sure, Andy, sure, if you say so.  What are you now- 0 and 100?  Shut the hell up.
  79. 2021 Wednesday U: Moron News I– Creator of the extremely racist 1619 Project Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones said one of the stupidest statements any of us here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day have heard in ages and that is that ‘among Western nations, Cuba is the most equal.’  You are our MORON of the DAY there, Ms. Bozo the Clown.
  80. 2021 Wednesday V: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Convicted sexual deviate Harvey Weinstein is set to begin his next trial in Los Angeles, California, following his transfer to that city.
  81. 2021 Wednesday W: National Security News– CISA- the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency- announced today that since 2009-2013, Chi-Com hackers have targeted the flow of oil through at least 23 major pipelines.   Elsewhere, the CIA has tapped its top ‘Bin Laden hunter’ to get to the bottom of the so-called ‘Havana syndrome,’ the one in which, U.S. diplomatic and military personnel are targeted by sonic attacks.
  82. 2021 Wednesday X: U.S. Senate News I– As things continue going from bad to worse for slobbering old Joe Biden, a bipartisan group of senators unveiled the new National Security Powers Act with which to strip the so-called ‘46th president’ of his abilities to wage war around the globe.  While we think this is a good thing, it should not be so constraining as to make future sound-of-mind and fit-of-body presidents incapable of protecting the country.  We don’t want to see presidents transformed into feckless prime ministers.  We do think, however, that before America enters a war anywhere around the globe, it must be a DECLARED WAR with the entire nation engaged in the fight.
  83. 2021 Wednesday Y: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump said that the ‘U.S. is on the path to communism what with the federal government and BIG TECH censoring everything and everyone.’
  84. 2021 Wednesday Z: California State News– As Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom faces imminent recall in September’s recall election, his good buddy, “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces she is going to return home to campaign on his behalf.  Yup, that’s really going to help the outgoing governor, “Kooky.”  Speaking of the recall, gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner says he, she, it is going on a bus tour.  Also, it appears as though Larry Elder will qualify to be on the recall election ballot.  If he does, many of us will be voting for him.  Another Republican running for the governor’s seat is former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said today that ‘Governor Newsom is actively encouraging the homeless to relocate to the once-Golden State.’  Yikes.  
  85. 2021 Wednesday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3579 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 10, 11, 19, 30, 36, and Mega 07.  Out of 95,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were 11 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,374 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #865 with a jackpot of $161 million up for grabs: 27, 28, 44, 67, 68, and Powerball 11.  Out of 71,592 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 41 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $464 apiece.
  86. 2022 Thursday: Welcome to the Thursday edition of the NEWS of the DAY, past and present.   Friends, we have said for years now that there is but one way in which this country can deal with the illegal alien invasion- militarize the southern border.  We believe minefields, electrified fencing, razor wire, obstacles in the middle of the Rio Grande River right down the dividing line between Mexico and the United States must be emplaced.  We must make numerous rows of obstructions as well as preventative measures against tunnels such as tubing placed down in the ground that in the first sign of digging can channel flammable materials underground which can then be ignited.  We must place military forces returning from overseas along the U.S.-Mexico border giving them a year’s tour by which, they can begin reintegration into American society instead of being dumped on the streets by the likes of General Milley.  We believe seeding the river with alligators and perhaps even piranha fish and the deserts with additional rattlesnakes, scorpions, Gila monsters, and poisonous spiders would help halt the tidal wave as would the cutting off of all water supplies.  If we are to survive as a nation, we must expel these invaders including the brats.  These people are third-class citizens, used and abused by Americans.  We see them languishing in parking lots and wandering the streets.  NO ONE WANTS THEM.  People throw garbage at them, insult them, even spit on them.  Deport them and deport them now because when the GOP comes back, to hell with the immigration lawyers, the American people will join the vigilante movements by which, they will round up and forcibly- forcibly– deport all of them and the lawyers, too.  Enough is enough.  The time is fast approaching…Chef E.C. McCardle.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0898 a 24” x 36” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Arizona.”  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 Beach Boys released a somewhat humongous box set: “Hawthorne, CA- Birthplace of a Musical Legacy” on May 22, 2001.  This 2-CD set has approximately 57 tunes on it, big hits, not-so-big-hits, B-sides, unreleased, and archival tunes all lovingly compiled by Capitol Records with all sorts of additions with which to sweeten the pot.  This album was yet another gem for diehard Beach Boys fans as it contained more rarities if one can believe that that is even remotely possible.  IF you have not yet brought the music of fun-sun-surf-hot chicks, fast cars, motorcycles, and all the rest of the music that made our summers so much f**king fun back in the 1960s and 1970s and even beyond, this is the way in which new fans and old-timers like us to accomplish this necessary task. Seek it out, don’t fret the cost, and buy it now- you will be glad you did.

  3. 1099 Thursday: The Crusaders launch their final assault on Muslim strongholds in Jerusalem.  Before long, the banners of Christendom would flutter over the city and the infidels put to the sword.  In modern times, revisionists of history claim the Crusaders were ‘invaders’ of Muslim land but the Muslims were the invaders- savage ones at that- and the Crusaders were merely reclaiming the region for the Kingdom of God.
  4. 1585 Saturday: A group of 108 English colonists, led by Sir Richard Grenville, reaches Roanoke Island, North Carolina.
  5. 1590 Friday: In Rome in the Papal States, future 239th Roman Catholic Pope Clement X is born Emilio Bonaventura Altieri.  He would become pontiff on April 29, 1670 and would lead the Holy Roman Catholic Church from then until July 22, 1676.

  23. 1943 Tuesday: In the Soviet Union, the Battle of Kursk ends with the Soviet Union the victor, over 6,000 tanks clashed on the field of battle with the Germans losing 2,900 of them.  The death toll was more than 1 million men dead on the battlefield.

  31. 1972 Thursday: George McGovern received the Democratic presidential nomination at the party’s convention in Miami Beach, Florida.  Elsewhere, Carroll Rosenbloom—owner of the Baltimore Colts—and Robert Irsay—owner of the Los Angeles Rams—swapped teams on this date.

  50. 2018 Friday: Following a successful lawsuit by the state of Missouri, Johnson & Johnson agrees to pay a record $4.7 billion settlement regarding cancer in women caused by their Baby Powder, a substance made of talcum powder.  One still sees late night TV commercials urging those who might be or have been affected to get in touch for legal representation.   Meanwhile, the Attorney-General Jeff Sessions’ led U.S. Department of Justice charges 12 Russian nationals and firms with having interfered in the 2016 Presidential Election, especially when it came to releasing Hillary Clinton’s infamous ‘disappeared’ emails.  Not long after being charged, some of the Russians arrived in the U.S. demanding their day in court in which, nothing as of yet has happened.  Finally, in Baluchistan, Pakistan, ISIS claims credit for a suicide bombing targeting an upcoming election event in which 128 people were killed and numerous others wounded.  Islamist scum.

  55. 2020 Monday C: Statistics for shootings in Chicago over the weekend are in: 64 people shot and 11 dead.  Where is Black Lives Matter?  Nowhere because BLM is little more than a left-wing hate group and not a group determined to protect black Americans from violence.

Currently, Joe is shy 99,019 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiii]        
  61. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.313 per gallon, $3.004 in Florida, $4.052 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Virgin Islands: $3.031.  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- Brazil: $4.234 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,518,319,930,230 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping 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 Belgium, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Cayman Island with $225 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.
  62. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 112 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day. No. 18 since her one and only visit to the El Paso, Texas, sector, the quietest portion of the border.  We hope she is not drawing a check for this farce.
  63. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As the Cuban people continue fighting for their freedom from the totalitarian regime, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, slams enfeebled Joe Biden and Twitter over their lack of response to the cries for freedom or even worse, covering them up so as to make nice with the communist regime in Havana.  The Senator also said that the Cuban government relies on Chi-Com tech to clamp down on their people.  Next, the DEA announced that one of the Haitian Americans swept up in the dragnet in the aftermath of the assassination of President Jovenel Moise was a confidential informant.  Oh, he isn’t now but he sure as heck was back when.  Wow.
  64. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– France today fined Google $590 million for failing to pay news outlets for the news they run on their sites.  Whoa.  Go for it.  Elsewhere, in Nasiriyah, Iraq, in a hospital’s COVID-19 ward, a fire broke out killing at least 92 patients and injuring loads of others.
  65. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– U.S. Surgeon General of the United States Vivek Murthy says that ‘COVID-19 booster shots are probable.’  Meanwhile, a new poll says that ’63-percent of the American people expect the Chi-Coms to pay reparations to the world for infecting the planet with their deadly, lab-created virus.  Amen.
  66. 2021 Tuesday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– As Keystone State Democrats continue attacking Pennsylvania state Republican Senator Douglas Mastriano, the feisty senator says all he wants is the auditing of elections so the people will be secure with the outcome.  As for Georgia, more complaints about corrupt and fraudulent elections continue to arise no matter how much they try to say there isn’t.
  67. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is sending Dr. Jill to be his representative at the Tokyo Summer Olympics.  (Note- before YOU go, Dr. Jill, how about buying some Genusel and applying it to your flipping arms?  Yikes[xvii]).  In other news, Joe Biden continues taking incoming flak over his inability to come out and stand with the Cuban people.  All hell is breaking loose down there on the island while the ‘president’ continues pulling a Toobin in the White House basement.   Speaking of old Joe, when he visited Philadelphia today, NOT a single person lined the streets and when he gave his ‘speech,’ there were NO shots of the audience and only canned applause.  How embarrassing.  Still, the senile old fool claims we are facing the ‘worst crisis since the Civil War’ with states trying to clean up their voter rolls and enforcing voter laws.  What a load of crap.
  68. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News I– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘inflation is small potatoes if we spend more.’  Spend more what, Mitch?  Should we spend more money just to spend it or should we exercise fiscal austerity and stop with spending trillions of dollars?  Ignoramus.  Next, GOP senators introduce a bill to extend Title 42 border expulsions for all sick illegal aliens trying to get across the border.   In other news, John Gizzi of Newsmax says that Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, ‘will remain in the GOP’ even though her days are numbered.  Kelly Tshibaka, conservative Republican, is going to clean the anti-Trumper’s clock come November 2022.
  69. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News II– Rudy Giuliani says that the ongoing witch hunt against him by the Biden regime shows a ‘shocking intellectual dishonesty’ in how the regime and its fake news media allies are going about it.  What they are doing to Rudy smacks of Third World, banana republic politics.  Meanwhile, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says that RNC Chairperson Ronna Romney McDaniel is a ‘liar, that the RNC did not help President Donald J. Trump during the 2020 Election’s aftermath nor are they helping him now.’  Amen.  McDaniel claims that the arguments made by Trump’s lawyers are based upon false information in a book we think by Michael Wolff.  No, Ronna, the more the American people pay attention to YOU, the more we realize you are a SHYSTER.  Resign.
  70. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News III– In other political news, we have heard how one of the Capitol Hill rioters of January 06, 2021, had a ‘Lego replica of the U.S. Capitol in his home and that he used it as a model to storm the Capitol Building on that ill-fated but overblown day.  Well, now we learn from our esteemed and wholly honorable Federal Bureau of Investigation that the Lego model was not fully constructed.  Wow.  In other political news, a Senate panel has given its okay for Supreme Court sessions to be televised.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Cuban government cannot fire on its own people.’  Yet they can and will do it.  Finally, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, says that the Democrats ‘have a plan with which to pay for $6 trillion in new spending.’  Sure, uh-huh, Chuck; it’s called borrowing the cash from the Chi-Coms which is why the Chi-Coms via straw purchasers are buying up housing tracts, apartment buildings, entire neighborhoods, and commercial real estate.  The SOBs are going to become Americans’ landlords and mortgage holders.  What a disaster.
  71. 2021 Tuesday O: Business News– Thanks to Major League Baseball playing WOKE politics, Georgia businesses are feeling an incredible pecuniary loss what with the All-Star Game occurring in lily-white Denver, Colorado, this week.   Next, the Trump Organization has removed CFO Allen Weisselberg from his duties while the ongoing witch hunt against him continues.
  72. 2021 Tuesday P:  Joe Biden Regime News I– Andrew Saul, Social Security commissioner under President Donald J. Trump who was fired by Joe Biden when asked to resign and would not now is denied access to the agency’s computers.  Next, the Biden regime is nominating ousted RINO Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona to become the next U.S. ambassador to Turkey.  Wow.  In other much more embarrassing news for the administration, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki said today what everyone knows and that is that the groper-in-chief Joe Biden does not write his speeches, press releases, or anything else, that someone in the administration does.  Folks, it requires two weeks of prepping and heavy-duty psych meds for the ‘46th president’ to be able to come across as semi-coherent as he did today in Pennsylvania.
  73. 2021 Tuesday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Steve Cortes said on Newsmax to get ready- even in liberal states- for the upcoming clashes between America’s parents and local school boards that have gone WOKE and are pushing Criminal Race Theory, uh, Critical Race Theory.  Speaking of Criminal Race Theory, Oklahoma’s Board of Education has banned the teaching of this Marxist claptrap.  Excellent.
  74. : Whacked-Out News of the Day– Senator Bernie Sanders, CPUSA-VT, spoke up ‘in support of the Cuban people’ (yeah, right) saying that they have the right to protest peacefully.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Tuesday S: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump has warned Republicans NOT to raise taxes.  Elsewhere, President Trump told a judge today that Wisconsin impugned him over his accusations of rampant voter fraud in the Badger State.
  76. 2021 Tuesday T: California State News– Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder has entered the race to replace Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in the September recall election.   Meanwhile, due to all the incoming flak from Golden State parents, California is reconsidering its WOKE mathematics push in which math can be whatever the student wants it to be- especially if he, she, or it is a minority- instead of what it is and what it has always been- mathematics.  (Note- we remember when schools were pushing Ebonics, what the hell is this constant push to infantilize black Americans?  It’s as if they want blacks to always have to depend on whitey to help them move forward in life.  Black Americans, become Republicans, we appreciate you- Chef Brian Carrick).
  77. 2021 Tuesday U: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott (R) says that the 57 Texas House Democrats who fled the state for Washington, D.C., will be arrested upon their return to Texas.  Texas Republicans have passed a bill that will allow Texas law enforcement to go to other states to arrest the scum who are filibustering new voter integrity laws.
  78. 2021 Tuesday V: U.S. Military News– U.S. Rear Admiral Mark Montgomery, (Ret), co-author of a report says that the U.S. Navy is beleaguered by WOKENESS and that many junior officers fear the Navy will survive a clash with the Chi-Coms.  Junior officers believe that the emphasis on WOKENESS and diversity officers is more important than is preparedness to go to war with the nation’s enemies.  Apparently, administrative training takes precedence over everything else which is WRONG.  When a ship is on deployment, it must focus on warfighting and not on who’s a WHITE SUPREMACIST.  Amen.
  79. 2021 Tuesday W: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1676 has a $102 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 03, 10, 17, 26, 55, and Mega 24.  Out of 58,641 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 39 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $462 apiece.
  80. 2022 Wednesday: After watching the Dr. Jill clown show the past couple of days, if there is one thing I know, having a Ph.D. after one’s name means nothing.  Hispanics are as unique as breakfast tacos?  Really?  As a Democrat, I am embarrassed at both this ignorant woman and her bumbling, senile husband.  Perhaps it’s true what my colleagues say?  That Joe is in the pocket of the Chi-Coms?  Holy, Moly.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys- “Endless Harmony Soundtrack”- came out on August 11, 1998, and is a tie-in to a documentary film on the band as well as a presentation of previously unheard/unreleased music from the Beach Boys.  This set mostly is one compiled and produced by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston as following the death of Carl Wilson, both Brian Wilson and Alan Jardine abandoned the joint group efforts of the past.  This split among members would last until 2012 when the original members remaining would reunite for a celebratory tour.  We hope you will seek this one out for all the unique recordings, alternate takes, and selected archival cuts.  It’s a good one and worth investigation by YOU, the veteran fan.  Check it out and enjoy.

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

[xi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,460,566,485,971 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Poland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Philippines with $43 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xiii]
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 97 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 3 since her first visit.  Meanwhile, One America News shares the latest statistics on the border disaster: (1) Cost this Day of caring for all these frigging illegal aliens: $510,324,832.  Imagine what that money could do for homeless Americans?  (2) Total Cost this year of caring for the avalanche of illegal aliens: $195,578,871,808- imagine what that money could do for Americans harmed by the Xi Jinping Bat Flu?  (3) Total number of illegal alien vermin who have crossed this year: 2,004,526.  Finally, (4) Total number of illegal aliens estimated to be lurking within the back alleyways of the United States (conservative estimate): 36,004,528.  We have said since the blog began back in 2009 that we estimated back then between 35-50 million whereas now, we estimate there are between 75-100 illegal aliens sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers.  Round them up and dump them in Mexico City- let the Mexicans deal with them.
  69. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News II– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken pressures Israel to make more concessions to the criminal Palestinians while dismissing the Abraham Accords.  The man is loser- what more can be said?  We learn today that that puling putz Joe Biden may reverse U.S. recognition of the Golan Heights as part of Israel.  Wow, Joe.  In other foreign and overseas news, we learn that faux ‘first lady’ Dr. Jill Biden will replace her bumbling hubby at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.  Elsewhere, Iran tells the IAEA to f**k off that it’s not going to share any data on its (criminal) nuclear programs until AFTER the U.S. knuckles down and rejoins the JCPOA, the Iran nuclear deal.  Meanwhile, former Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon says that ‘rejoining the Iranian nuclear deal will threaten the entire (FREE) world.’
  70. 2021 Monday H: Political News I– Yesterday, Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district and House minority leader, has released a framework with which to rein in BIG TECH…we shall see.   Next, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is looking to set up a lopsided 13-member panel to ‘investigate’ the events of January 06, 2021, the FALSE FLAG OPERATION created by Pelosi and her sycophants to tar and feather President Donald J. Trump’s supporters and to instill a measure of fear into any weak-kneed Republican who had any thoughts on going against the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election results.  One day, “Mumbles” is going to pay a big price for her perfidy.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Political News II– Former Congressman Jim Renacci, R-OH 16th congressional district, has thrown his hat in the ring to challenge pathetic RINO Governor Mike DeWine.  Good.  This POS must lose his seat.  Next, Manhattan prosecutors announce what we all know- they are not going to charge President Donald J. Trump with any crimes as there are NO crimes with which to charge him unless they begin making crap up.  It was all a political ploy just as threatening now to investigate Don Jr.’s so-called ‘posse.’   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump expresses his disappointment with former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr who has demonstrated that he is little more than another piece of the swamp-dwelling vermin.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Political News III– A new Oxford University poll says that ONLY 29-percent of Americans trusts the mainstream media.  Next, Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot, CPUSA, blames others for what is going on in the Windy City.  Over the past weekend, 78 people were shot and seven killed.  “Frog-Face” Lightfoot continues blaming everyone else for her own stupidity and ignorance.  People of Chicago, hold a special election and get this nut-bag out of the mayor’s office.  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, visited Mt. Rushmore and blasted the (Obama)-Biden administration for its refusal to allow fireworks at the fabled mountain this year.  The Bidenistas claim there is some threat of fire danger while we know he is shutting it down because it’s patriotic.
  73. 2021 Monday K: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates–  Today, I Chef B.H. Cznystekinki put Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr on the list.  Senator McConnell, well, he’s always been a rat although at times he seems to grow a spine and then returns to being vermin.  As for AG Barr, we genuinely thought that he was an ally on President Donald J. Trump but folks, he’s just as big a rat as is his buddy, “Cocaine Mitch.”  They can continue saying that 2020 was the FAIREST ELECTION in the history of the United States but let me put it like this: IF what happened to Trump happened to the Democrats, they would still be burning everything down and screeching like the gutter snipes they are for blood.
  74. 2021 Monday L: Moron News I– Little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, CPUSA 14th congressional district blows off concerns of rising violent crime as the little bug-eyed dimwit continues braying like the left-wing sheeple that she is, “DEFUND THE POLICE, DEFUND THE POLICE, DEFUND THE POLICE!”  Look, b***h, just shut your dumb-ass mouth.
  75. 2021 Monday: Last night Joe Biden was bombing Iranian targets in Syria and Iraq.  Have we entered into a state of war today?  Stick around and find out with us…
  76. 2022 Tuesday: Stick around…

  49. 2008 Friday: Bill Gates resigns from Microsoft to devote his energies to his charity work.  Elsewhere, as a show of good faith, the North Koreans destroy the cooling tower at the Yongbyon Scientific Nuclear Research Center.  Things are dire in the country, people are starving, and the leadership doesn’t want to end up like the Ceausescu Family following the collapse of communism in the early 1990s.
  50. 2009 Saturday: The Taliban claim credit for an attack in the Pakistani-administered portion of Kashmir that kills 2 soldiers going about their business.  Meanwhile, after a 10-month breakup over Russia’s aggression in Georgia, Russia and NATO agree to restore diplomats.   There was hope in the world back then, real hope that maybe ALL of Europe might find a way to unite with one another.  What the hell happened?  NATO’s continued encirclement of the former Soviet Union and the making of modern Russia into a bogeyman.
  51. 2010 Sunday: In Matam, Senegal, all hell breaks out at a 2010 FIFA World Cup soccer match leading to the deaths of at least 11 people and numerous injuries to loads of others.  All in the name of soccer, folks, all in the name of soccer.  Elsewhere, in northern Pakistan, military jets light up a Taliban compound blowing 14 people to hang with Allah sooner than any of them planned while leaving at least another eight messed up in one way or another.  Excellent work, boys, outstanding work, you frigging dimwits.

  53. 2012 Wednesday: After negotiations with creditors fail, the California city of Stockton files for bankruptcy protection, making it the largest city in the U.S. to do so.  Elsewhere, as things continue going from bad to worse in Syria, President Bashar al-Assad declares a state of war now exists in his country as rampaging mobs begin pouring into the capital city of Damascus.   As time passes, global leaders will demand that President Assad must go yet, he never goes.  World leaders go and he is still there.
  54. 2013 Thursday: China’s president, Xi Jinping, and South Korean President Park Geun-hye meet for four days of talks aimed at reducing tensions on the Korean Peninsula— why did no one invite the North Koreans.

  55. 2014 Friday: Bobby Womack, outstanding vocalist and songwriter died at the age of 70.  Elsewhere, Human Rights Watch announces that the ISIS thugs have murdered at least 160 POWS in ISIS-overrun city of Tikrit, Iraq.  It’s what these murdering scumbags do- behead their captives which is why napalm would do one hell of a job of eliminating the vermin.
  56. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, the Greek Parliament votes in favor of holding a referendum on July 5th regarding whether the country should accept reforms in exchange for continued bailouts; current bailouts expire on June 30th, the day that a $1.8 billion debt payment is due.  In Phoenix, Arizona, Chris Squire—famed bassist with the British rock band, Yes[v], —lost his battle with leukemia on this date; he was 67 years old.
  57. 2016 Monday: Once again demonstrating their anthesis towards the American people, a short-handed U.S. Supreme Court strikes down a Texas abortion law 5-3.  Elsewhere, the ISIS thugs carry their criminal activity north from Syria into southern Lebanon where they assault a peaceful village of Qaa.  In the resulting mayhem, the jihadists kill at least six poor souls and injure another 13 before being driven back into war-torn Syria.
  58. 2017 Tuesday: According to Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook has crossed the 2 billion users’ plateau.  Boy, George Orwell would have loved this!  Meanwhile, the European Union SLAMS Google for unfair competition practices and hands them a bill for $2.7 billion.  Boy, that will teach that worthless POS Sundar Pichai!  Elsewhere, the GOP is trying to get rid of Obamacare but are doing a half-assed attempt to do it.  Had they not drunk the Kool-Aid that President Donald J. Trump colluded with the Russkies, they might actually have gotten rid of this crap, but they failed like they always do.
  59. 2018 Wednesday: U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announces his retirement effective July 31st.  Meanwhile, in one of the MOST EMBARRASSING election losses in ages, New York Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley, a powerful member of leadership, goes down in flames as bar maid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez DEFEATS him in the state’s primary.  He would not even debate this crazy chick because he dismissed her and look what happened to him: LOSER with a capital “L.”
  60. 2019 Thursday: The John Roberts U.S. Supreme Court does it again: it rules in a 6-3 ruling that the U.S. 2020 Census cannot contain a citizenship question.  WTF?  The court also rules that partisan gerrymandering is A-Okay in that the party in power can rejigger the boundary lines of congressional districts.  No wonder the Dems in California are stealing elections.  Again, WTF?   Elsewhere, down in Miami, Florida, the Democrats hold their presidential primary debate.  As usual, it’s a freak show of giving away everything to noncitizens and proclamations that President Donald J. Trump is ‘EVIL.’
  61. 2020 Saturday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 9,891,728 confirmed cases, 496,075 confirmed deaths, and 5,004,567 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 2,556,465 confirmed cases, 127,452 confirmed deaths, and 783,235 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states where 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: 206,433 confirmed cases, 5,872 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 866 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 705 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 31,351 confirmed cases, 1,310 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.

[vii]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 301,518 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 158,131 deaths  
  64. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,816,358 confirmed cases, 63,588 confirmed deaths, and 2,072,518 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,367,298 confirmed cases, 37,772 confirmed deaths, and 2,179,663 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,647 confirmed cases, 516 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 452,235 confirmed cases, 5,949 confirmed deaths, and 225,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., North Dakota: they have 110,663 confirmed cases, 1,528 confirmed deaths, and 108,988 confirmed recoveries.

[xiii]        
  67. 2021 Sunday 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 $4.272 per gallon, $2.938 in Florida, $4.002 in Hawaii, and $3.720 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- New York: $3.151.  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- Australia: $3.974 per U.S. Gallon. [xv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,456,752,827,063 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xvii]
  68. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #96 for “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border and Day No. 2 following her first brief trip to the border this past Friday.  Next, here are the stats as reported by One America News for the costs of providing succor to the millions of illegal aliens in this country and their numbers which we believe are conservative.  First, this is the cost this day of providing help to illegal aliens: $629,274,624.  Next, here are the costs this year of caring for the illegal aliens: $194,601,926,656.  Now, here are the numbers for the illegals who have crossed into the United States this year: 1.994,514.  Next, here are the estimated numbers of illegals in the country which in our view is extremely conservative: 35,994,512.  (Note- we have estimated since the inception of this blog back in 2009 that the numbers of illegals then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe there are between 75-100 million lurking within the country.  Time to round them up and boot them out of the country.  NOW.  OAN sources: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  69. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Famed economist Stephen Moore said today that a ‘great nation does not borrow its way to prosperity.’  Amen.  Next, Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says of the ‘bipartisan infrastructure bill’ is popular for all the right reasons.   Speaking of the infrastructure bill, feeble old Joe Biden claims that comments he made regarding this bill and his dissatisfaction with it were not meant to sound like a threat of a veto.  Uh, okay.  Meanwhile, traitorous Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell is back to being negative on President Donald J. Trump and is encouraging former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr to come out and to announce that the 2020 Presidential Election was completely kosher, that there was no fraud, that all was peachy-keen.  None of us know what is wrong with “Cocaine Mitch” but this time, there is no coming back for him.  He must lose his seat.
  70. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, and 14 other GOP congressmen have sent a letter to the director of the Internal Revenue Service demanding revelations as to how the IRS can justify going after Christian organizations by denying them tax exempt status simply because ‘they tend to lean right.’  What the hell?  Is Lois Lerner back working for the IRS?  This is unconstitutional and extremely illegal.  What are we, Nazi Germany now?
  71. 2021 Sunday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Apparently North Koreans are concerned over the ‘dramatic weight loss’ of dear beloved leader Kim Jong Un?  Perhaps they stapled his stomach, and he is losing weight?  If he goes- his crazy-ass sister, Kim Yo-jong, will most likely take over his spot.  There won’t be any summits between her and drooling Joe Biden, that’s for sure.  In other foreign news, it sounds as though the military-industrial-political complex has pushed the decrepit usurper-in-chief to launch airstrikes on Iranian positions in Iraq and Syria.  Ah, who doesn’t love a good war, eh?
  72. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The VAERS website reports that in the United States alone, there have been more than 4,114 deaths or hospitalizations due to problems resulting from the various COVID-19 vaccines.  NOT GOOD.  Down in Arkansas, Governor Asa Hutchinson says that hospitalizations are increasing while vaccines to get incentives are falling.
  73. 2021 Sunday J: Where we were last year: Today is Day #158 of the Biden regime nightmare.  The question is, how long will the American people chafe under this usurper regime?  Especially one owned by the Chi-Coms and the Russians?  Folks, we hope to see the restoration of the Trump presidency before year’s end and the traitors rounded up and sent to prison where they belong.  You know what the Fake News says- we’ve never had a presidential election overturned in the history of the county but then, we have never had an election stolen as blatantly as was the 2020 Presidential Election.  Stay tuned…
  74. 2022 Monday: Who knows what’s occurring this year.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell. We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions. We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

  19. 1916 Monday: The French army begins launching counterattacks against German forces in and around Verdun, the great killing ground for both French and German troops.  The counterattacks fall atop German positions at Meuse and at Ft. Douamont.  Fighting is fierce and ongoing.   Elsewhere, heavy fighting between German colonial troops and their Askaris and a South African force erupts around the village of Kondona Irangi.  The Allies have had a hell of a time getting the Germans into a fixed fight and after the Kaiser’s troops inflict heavy losses on their opponents, they melt off into the terrain.
  20. 1917 Tuesday: A bill in Congress to establish Daylight Saving Time suffered a defeat; however, lawmakers managed to pass it a few months later.   Elsewhere, during World War I, British and Egyptian troops begin assaulting Ottoman Turk positions in and around Gaza.  The fight to liberate Palestine from the Turks is underway.

  27. 1944 Monday: The Red Army continues driving Axis troops out of the western Ukraine.  One offensive after another prevents the German, Hungarian, Rumanian, and other allied Axis troops from being able to catch their breath and make a stand.  This is not good for the Axis, but they will continue fighting until the bitter end.
  28. 1946 Wednesday: In the aftermath of World War II, Syria declares its independence from France.  Look at ‘em now!

  32. 1960 Sunday: American Samoa sets up a constitutional government.
  33. 1961 Monday: Some 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba with which to topple communist thug dictator, Fidel Castro- or so the plan went- on this date.  However, President John F. Kennedy’s plan went awry from the start as Castro’s forces crushed the incursion by the third day.  The CIA was going to provide the freedom fighters with air cover but then President Kennedy and his brother, U.S. Attorney General Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy got cold feet and left them to their demise.
  34. 1964 Friday: The Ford Motor Company officially debuts its Mustang with a base price of $2,368.

  44. 1997 Thursday: New Jersey Devils Martin Brodeur is second NHL goalie to score in a playoff game.
  45. 2003 Thursday: U.S. forces get lucky in Iraq as they scoop up one of deposed dictator Saddam Hussein’s half-brothers, Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, the leader of Iraq’s intelligence-gathering agency, the Mukhabarat.  Off he goes to a black site. 
  46. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  65. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group, but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

[iv] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[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 began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

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

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

Colonel Pierre Langlais confronts Colonel Christian De Castries and demands a reordering of the command structure.  Castries is somewhat subdued, his chief-of-staff Lt.

The paratroopers are determined to mount a more forceful defense and to take it to the People’s Army as good as they are giving it to the French.

Trump.  
  61. 2017 Friday: Thanks to schmucks such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Trump administration and their GOP allies in the House of Representatives are forced to pull their plan to overturn Obamacare and to replace it with a better plan.   Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee goes to war with itself over the bogus Trump-Russia Collusion scam, the very same engineered by the Democrats.  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, and ranking member, the locoweed Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, are butting heads over information coming out that shows that the Obama administration SPIED on the then-Trump campaign.
  62. 2018 Saturday: In the streets of Washington, D.C., and cities across the country, hundreds of thousands of teens and their supporters rallied against gun violence, spurred by a call to action from student survivors of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., which left 17 people dead.  In other crazy news, likeminded European liberals- these in Paris- are also protesting against gun violence- in the U.S.  The French people are demanding Americans give up their guns- so says the losers of 1940, Dien Bien Phu in 1954, and Algeria from 1956 to 1962.  LOSERS with a capital “L.”
  63. 2019 Sunday: On this Sunday, Attorney-General Bill Barr put out a brief on the 22-month Robert S. Mueller III investigation into Donald Trump, Trump campaign officials, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia by saying that ‘Mueller’s team had found no evidence of collusion between now-President Trump, members of his campaign, his friends and family and Russia nor was there any sign of obstruction.’  In effect, this clears the president and those around him other than those convicted of process crimes during the investigation.  The Democrats could not handle the outcome and rushed to the microphones braying like dogs for ALL the evidence and promise to continue the witch hunt into Mr. Trump.  The investigation began- many believe- in late 2015 or early 2016 and involved members of the Hillary Clinton team, Barack Obama Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as foreign operatives hired by members of the Obama team to set up candidate- and then- President Trump.  
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Democrats continue stalling in the U.S. Senate by holding up Wuhan Virus relief legislation by trying to stuff in Green New Deal, Pro-Death, union, identity politics, election fraud such as ballot harvesting in ALL 50 states, and more.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues rebuffing them in the hope that honest and legitimate legislation can occur.  Meanwhile, the world around mid-day acknowledges approximately 414,277 cases of COVID-19, with 38,819 new cases over the past 24 hours.  Global deaths are 18,557 what with 2,146 in the previous 24 hours.  In the United States, there are 51,542 cases of the Kung Flu with 8,328 new cases over the past 24 hours.  There is a total of 674 deaths, up by 95 over the previous 24 hours.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closes UP by 11.3% or up 2,112.98 points, closing at 20,764.91.  Bravo. 
  65. 2020 Tuesday A: Bill Rieflin- drummer with King Crimson from 2013-15 / 2017 until today- died in his hometown of Seattle, Washington, on this date at age 59.  Cancer was the cause.
  66. 2021 Wednesday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– in anticipation of tomorrow’s FIRST NEWS CONFERENCE with the press, Joe Biden announces (or his earpiece does) that 40 reporters will be allowed into the briefing.  Next, Newsmax says that the mocking of Joe Biden by our foreign adversaries shows that they neither respect him nor fear him which is not good for the United States.   However, (and we don’t believe this one iota), the American Research Group shows an approval rating for Joe Biden of 60-percent and 33-percent disapproval rate.   (Note- Rasmussen puts Joe’s numbers at 48-percent approve and 50-percent disapprove of him).  Moving on, Joe Biden plans to mark Equal Pay Day as women are harder hit by COVID-19 than are their male counterparts.  Good for you, Joe, pandering like always.  Speaking of old Joe, earlier today he announced that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is now in charge of ‘solving the border crisis.’  (Note- continue building the wall and deport them all and that will help solve the ‘self-inflicted problem’ just as cutting off ALL government aid to illegals will.  Come on Methuselah, do your flipping job!).[vii]   Finally, when reporters asked Old Joe what he thought about North Korea’s recent missile tests, he said, ‘not much has changed.’
  67. 2021 Wednesday A: GOP NEWS– Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox, GOP, signed a measure that will put filters on porn sites within the state.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, GOP-lead states are fighting the good fight against Joe Biden’s increasingly insane policies, wish lists of liberal loony tunes spending and deprivation of the American people’s rights.  Elsewhere, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is pushing the Justice Department to continue the probe into perjury charges against the crackpot witnesses the Democrats trotted out to smear now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick should all be doing time in federal prisons for the bulls**t they pulled at his confirmation hearings back in 2018.  Get them, Chuck!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump is supporting Max Miller in his bid to unseat RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez in Ohio’s 16th congressional district.  Gonzalez voted to impeach President Trump if you recall.
  68. 2021 Wednesday B: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I–  The person who used to be known as Prince Harry, aka Mr. Meghan Markle, is taking a no-show gig as the ‘chief impact officer’ at a Silicon Valley startup, Betterup, that will help emotionally challenged individuals- like his wife and boss- overcome their issues.  Bravo, Harry, bravo.  Sort of like Hunter Biden working at Burisma.   Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders says that he is ‘uncomfortable’ with the permanent ban placed on President Donald J. Trump by Twitter.  However, President Trump says he has ‘no plans to return to Twitter,’ seeing as how he is in the midst of creating his own untouchable social media platform.   Next, the New York Justice Department says the impeachment probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo could continue for months.  So, charge him with the homicides of 15,000-20,000 people and get him out of office.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Wednesday C: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS–  Vladimir Putin’s chef- businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin- has written to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding he be removed from a most-wanted list.  The FBI put a bounty of $250,000 atop his head last month for his apprehension and extradition to the United States over bogus charges he somehow meddled in the 2016 Presidential Election on behalf of then-candidate Donald J. Trump.  He says the FBI must stop offering the reward as it violates several principles under human rights laws.  That’s Joe Biden for you, looking for fall guys he can blame for his own shortcomings such as Hunter Biden being in the hip pockets of both the Ukraine and China.  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declares victory in the recent elections, but the majority is still unclear.   Elsewhere, a massive container ship in the Suez Canal has run aground due to high winds and is blocking passage to other ships.
  70. 2021 Wednesday D: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUNS NEWS– Representative Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says the Dems are ‘playing politics with our lives’ over their renewed drive to strip the American people of their guns.  (Note- we’d like to see them try.  First, there are going to be SO-O-O MANY gun thefts in this country, the cops will be tied up seeking them while secondly, it’s like what former NRA boss Charlton Heston used to say: ‘you can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.  Joe- NO one is going to surrender their guns, NO one.  Come and get them.  Chef Alvin).  Still, after the POS Syrian Muslim refugee Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa[viii] killed 10 WHITE people at the King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier this week, the Dems began to go bat-crap-crazy in pushing their gun-grabbing bills.   Joe Biden says he doesn’t have to ‘wait for Congress’ to begin stripping guns.  Go for it, Joe.
  71. 2021 Wednesday E: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS II– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer[ix] swears on his mother’s soul that the two firearms bills sent to him from the House of Representatives will receive swift attention.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris is urging swift hearing and passage of these gun-grabbing bills.  Interesting note- John Bachman of Newsmax says that the ‘Democrats are hypocrites.  They claim to hate guns, yet they spread guns all over the world’ selling them to thugs, criminals, terrorists, murderers, and other human trash.  He reminded his viewers of the Obama era “Fast and Furious” program that put military grade weapons into the hands of Mexican narcoterrorists.  
  72. 2021 Wednesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– ‘The (Communist) Squad in Congress now claims that NOT supporting statehood for Washington, D.C., is RACIST.  The federal district was NEVER intended to be a state, girls, it was pulled together from several states so that NO single state would claim rights to sole ownership of the federal government.  No, just because lots of black folks live there does not make it ‘racist.’  Everyone living in the District of Columbia knows the score.  Shut the f**k up.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that H.R. 1 is a bald political power grab.  Mitch- you should have supported President Donald J. Trump when you had the opportunity.  Now, shut the hell up.  Finally, the Wisconsin State Assembly authorizes an investigation into election fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
  73. 2021 Wednesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Coincidence of the Day”- last week, Dr. Moncef Slaoui said that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears 90-percent of getting the COVID-19 vaccine programs underway what with Operation Warp Speed and Joe Biden just 10-percent.  Today, GlaxoSmithKline terminated Dr. Slaoui for purported sexual harassment allegations against him.  Wow.  Is this not amazing?  Cancel Culture strikes yet again.  Defend Trump and you lose your job.  Well, we defend Trump- WTF are YOU going to do to US?   Next, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says AstraZeneca soon to release an updated report on its coronavirus vaccines.   Meanwhile, Caribbean nations are begging the Biden administration NOT to be stingy with the coronavirus vaccines, to please, remember the countries on the U.S.’ third border.  (Note- when these countries do something about the horrendous foodborne illness visitors typically acquire upon eating their first meals there, we will send you vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU).  Finally, five years after his untimely death, famed rock star Prince’s ashes will go on public display.
  74. 2021 Wednesday H: ODDBALL AND HUMOROUS NEWS OF THE DAY– By a final vote of 52-48 (with RINO Senators Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, and Susan Collins, RINO-ME, confirmed the nomination of tranny (woof!) former Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine to become the next assistant secretary of health.  Okie dokie.  Aren’t we proud as a nation!  Next, a chick with a dick,[x] Kataluna Enriquez has been crowned Miss Silver State USA, one step away from competing in the Miss Nevada USA pageant.  In yet another slap to the faces of women and girls, the tranny beat out numerous biological females to become the first beauty pageant winner with a dong swinging down under.  Folks, what the hell is going on?  Almost makes one wish the Chinese would take the country over.  Oh, speaking about ‘affronts’ to women, “Kooky Kamala” Harris and former President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton are teaming up on a program with which to empower women.  Does anyone see the irony in this? [xi] (They are already receiving massive blowback for this bulls**t symposium).
  75. 2021 Wednesday I: U.S. BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears to ‘shut the Senate down’ if the Biden administration denies him access to the southern border.  Senator Marsha Blackburn was visiting the border today and she said, ‘what a mess.’  Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the ongoing border catastrophe.’  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden’s rhetoric and his first day actions are responsible for the border catastrophe.’   Speaking of this crisis, this holocaust, Joe Biden has yet to name a nominee to head the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.   Meanwhile, Congressman Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the ‘migrants must be made known as to what awaits them on this side of the border.’  The border states must find a way with which they can finish the wall on their territory if they cannot do it on federal land.  Steve Bannon, where the hell are YOU and YOUR charity to fund border wall construction?
  76. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,378,693 confirmed cases, +453,805, 2,736,980  confirmed deaths, +9,340, and 70,573,246 confirmed recoveries, +252,735.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,161,747 confirmed cases, up 57,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,411 confirmed deaths, UP 798, and 117,371,050 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,944 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,648,021 confirmed cases, 57,909 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the American Samoa: currently, they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Pakistan, home of a large chapter of the Taliban: 637,042 cases of the virus, 13,965 confirmed deaths and 586,228 confirmed recoveries.  
  79. 2021 Wednesday M: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,420.06, DOWN 3.09 points (-0.01%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,961.89, DOWN 265.81 points (-2.01%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,889.14, DOWN 21.38 points (-0.55%).  The price of GOLD is $1,733.10 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.12 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.46%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,172.20 per troy oz, -8.00 (-0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.03 per pound, -0.04 (-0.92%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,640.10 per troy oz, +22.80 (+0.87%). The price of RHODIUM is $29,800.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.70 per barrel, -0.48 (-0.78%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.90.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.   In Barbadian dollar, one greenback equals 2.00. 
  80. 2021 Wednesday N: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.622 in Hawaii, and $3.324 in Washington state.    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,089,823,477,532 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness thanks to the Democrats and their trillion-dollar bills.  Donald Trump- time for you to return to office.
  81. 2021 Wednesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Drawing #3545 with a pot of $31 million on the line: 10, 11, 13, 32, 38, and Mega 17.  Out of 111,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,815 apiece. Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #831 with a $220 million pot on the line: 04, 09, 17, 27, 38, and Power 18.   Out of 95,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,606. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday P: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS I– Tesla now says that its customers can buy their electric vehicles with Bitcoin.  Having bought $1.5 billion in Bitcoin several months back, any cars bought with Bitcoin will remain in their Bitcoin account- they are not going to convert it into dollars.  Next, the Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesperson said that yes, indeed, North Korea did fire at least one projectile into the East China Sea.  That’s Kim for you- NO respect for Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, as 14 states sue the Biden administration for its almost immediate crackdown on all energy projects on federal lands, the U.S. Department of the Interior announces that it’s going to review all existing and applications for fossil fuel drilling on federal lands.  With a Norwegian-Native American in charge, Debra Haaland, you know there won’t be any new drilling and many existing oil and natural gas leases will be shut down.  Windmills and solar farms.  
  83. 2021 Wednesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS II– Virginia Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam signs a bill that will end capital punishment in the state.  Since its inception as a British colony, there have been 1,400 executions.  Since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, there have been 113 executions which ranks the Old Dominion State second only to the Lone Star State in the number of executions carried out.  Still, Governor “Black Face” says the death penalty should be available for especially heinous crimes but throughout history, the death penalty has fallen mostly on minorities, the mentally ill, and the poor.  Elsewhere, Intel is going to build two chip-manufacturing plants in Arizona, so says CEO Pat Gelsinger.  Not only will it produce chips for its own purposes, but it will also serve as a ‘foundry,’ which means it will build microchips for other companies.  The company will qualify for about $90 million in tax credits when construction is completed, and it will also provide at least 3,000 high-paying jobs.  Even better, it will become an alternative source for chip manufacturing so if Asia craps out or withholds chips from Western nations, problem solved.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS III– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, today and informed our allies that ‘America was back’ and that we would not put our ‘allies in a position of ‘us or them,’ meaning- we guess- that if the Germans want to buy natural gas from the Russians, the nation against whom the victorious Western allies created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to defend against- then so be it.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg invited the Russians to return to having an observatory role in the organization.  Secretary Blinken wants the organization to remain strong against both Russian and Chinese hegemony and that if the Chi-Coms cause problems for one country, they cause them for all countries within the group.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they blasted the U.S. today for everything from being a racist nation to its out-of-control spending.  Ouch.
  85. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The reformed Band released their next album, “High on the Hog,” on February 27, 1996.  Once again, the group performed numerous covers but what the heck- they performed them with verve, class, and a great deal of sass.  The Band features Rick Danko (guitars, bass, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, bass, vocals, and mandolins), Garth Hudson (keyboards, accordions, saxophones, even vocals), Richard Manuel (piano on one track), Jim Weider (guitars/vocals), Rick Bell (keyboards/accordions/vocals), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), along with guest spots by loads of other talented and well-known musicians, at least 15-20 of them.  While it’s challenging not to have major songwriter and guitarist Robbie Robertson in the fold, it is what it is.  We hope you will seek this album out as it is the first of a trio of new works to come.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

[i] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

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

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

[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.
