  54. 2016 Saturday: Ahead of the upcoming GOP National Convention, Apple Inc. says that because candidate Donald J. Trump is such an ‘evil ogre,’ they won’t be providing any funds or other support to the convention.  They claim that Mr. Trump has said things negative to women, illegal aliens, and homosexuals, most of which is either blown out of proportion or straight-out bulls**t.   (Note- Big Tech is showing its hand already, folks…)
  55. 2017 Sunday: Emanuel Macron’s political party wins big in the second round of the legislative elections.  Elsewhere, a new ‘health study’ in the United States says it’s wise to avoid the use of coconut oil (which makes the absolute best popcorn) and go with something like canola oil or other such U.S.-produced vegetable oils.  A year or two later, there would be much discussion as to whether canola oil is actually a cancer-causing oil?  We understand the best oils to use are either olive or avocado and yes, coconut oil, too.  Avoid the other crap.
  56. 2018 Monday: President Donald J. Trump announces the establishment of a sixth branch of the U.S. military, the U.S. Space Force with which to counter the threats of communist China, Vladimir Putin’s Russia, India, Iran, and other states seeking to control outer space.   Elsewhere, a dimwitted Palestinian thug tries to sneak into Israel.  While fiddling with automated border technology way beyond the farthest realms of his intelligence, the defensive device detonates and kills the imbecile.  Of course, the Palestinians are angry over this incident of suicide by stupidity.
  57. 2019 Tuesday: An International Tribunal in London announces that communist China has been harvesting the organs of marginalized peoples in prison camps on an industrial scale.  This should be shocking to everyone that this communist POS country would commit crimes against humanity on this scale yet the United Nations and nations around the globe say…nothing.  Crickets.  Free Mainland China NOW!  Meanwhile in Hong Kong, Carrie Lam, leader of the independent former British Crown Colony apologizes for having introduced the Beijing-sponsored ‘extradition bill’ that would send accused criminals to communist Mainland China for trial.  She withdrew it because people demanding freedom forced her to do it, she had no choice.
  58. 2020 Thursday: China’s ‘gift to the world,’ the coronavirus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, created in Wuhan and dispatched around the world, continues causing problems.  Here are the global stats for today: 8,400,320 confirmed cases, 450,435 confirmed deaths, and 4,109,183 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the stats: 2,230,920 confirmed cases, 120,147 confirmed deaths, and 698,390 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist China American Institute of Culinary Politics- The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 161,099 confirmed cases, 5,290 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 744 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 639 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Democratic-Socialist hellhole of Washington, here are the stats: 27,145 confirmed cases, 1,245 confirmed deaths, and but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these political scumbags, shame.  As for unemployment claims, more than 1.5 million Americans filed for unemployment claims last week.

  61. 2021 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,011 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 160,638 deaths

[xxi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.66.     In Mauritanian Ouguiya, one greenback equals 357.00 and in Mauritian Rupee, a buck equals 40.75 and in Moldovan Leu, one dollar equals 17.74 of theirs.[xxii]        
  65. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.228 per gallon, $2.953 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.630 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.724.  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- El Salvador: $3.797 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,421,896,732,639 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxv]  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 Saudi Arabia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea with $131 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxvi]
  66. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says of Joe Biden and ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris (by the way, this is Day #87 she has held this job, folks, and has yet to do one day’s work in this extremely important job), that ‘neither of them have any intention of visiting or fixing the border.’  We are sending checks to the Texas-Arizona effort to continue building the wall.  (Note- we would send even more money if they were going to lay in minefields, seed the area along the Rio Grande with loads of rattlesnakes, and other anti-personnel obstacles and barriers.  Something must happen here).
  67. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Palestinians were set to receive 1 million doses of the Chi-Vi vaccine from Israel and then refused them by claiming they were going to expire soon.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, as Canada continues to follow the path forward blazed by Mao Zedong in the 1940s and 1950s, U.S. businesses are concerned over the failure of the Canucks to reopen their border so normal business and tourism can recommence.  (Note- we think Ottawa is going down a dark path and are using the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as their excuse for cutting off communications between our two countries.  None of us want to visit that Third World country again, especially after they interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election- that means YOU, Justin Trudeau, which means YOU, Dominion Voting Systems, which means you, YOU Marx-loving losers).
  68. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Unvaccinated West Point cadets are under a great deal of pressure to get the COVID-19 vaccine or face solitary confinement.  Look, most of the U.S. military is not taking the vaccine so why should the military cadets?  Many of us remember the innumerable problems that surrounded U.S. military personnel given anthrax and other oddball vaccinations prior to George W. Bush’s illegal war in Iraq.  We stand with the cadets.   Next- and this is a good one- apparently, the AstraZeneca Chi-Com vaccine is NOT GOOD ENOUGH to get tickets to see Bruce “The Boring” Springsteen on Broadway.  Alas, what is GOOD ENOUGH- the Johnson & Johnson soul-stealing vaccine?  We didn’t want to see “The Loser” anyway.
  69. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Forever-pissed Stacey Abrams, election-stealing expert says she is backing Senator Joe Manchin’s voting compromise that will make Election Day a national holiday as well as to cement 15 days of early voting.  If an angry cow such as Ms. Abrams is supporting it, then it can’t be good.  (Note- we always hope that Senator Machin will ‘do the right thing’ but it’s clear that he is as malleable as is silly putty under the right pressure.
  70. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News– Rep. Andrew Garbarino, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that Joe Biden is not tough enough on the cybersecurity front.   In other Joe Biden news, former White House physician and current Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th congressional district, is demanding the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ feeble old “Gropin’ Joe” Biden must take a cognitive test and even more importantly, release the results to the American people.  We wholeheartedly concur.
  71. 2021 Friday K: Political News I– As questions continue to rise over what exactly happened on January 06, 2021, and the cacophony of misinformation swirling around the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION the nation has ever seen, brave patriots are now asking questions as to what the FBI and their pro-Beijing Director Chris Wray knew and when did they know.  Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, perhaps one of the greatest patriots the country has ever seen, asked the top question regarding this ginned-up mob of Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter: “Did the FBI animate the events of that day?”  (Note- we suspect they were in the thick of it, hence WHY there are more than 14,000 hours of video from that day that the public has yet to see.  We do know police on the backside of the Capitol Building waved the mob inside.  We also know that ONCE you see Confederate battle flags flying, you know the FALSE FLAG OPERATION is underway because much like the Tea Party, they never carried rebel flags, Nazi flags, or signs calling for the death of politicians.  There are not enough prisons to silence all of us.
  72. 2021 Friday L: Political News II– Two losers both on the View- lard-lady Meghan McCain (a RINO if ever one existed) and the extremely angry and belligerent (and unattractive) Whoopi Goldberg came close to trading blows on the highly-overrated program over angry old Joe Biden’s treatment of a female reporter.  Yeah, that was pretty bad.  While we dislike both these women, we would love to see ‘Lard Lady’ plant one smack dab in the puss of both Whoopi and ‘Joyless’ Joy Behar.  That would be Pay-per-View TV,  folks.
  73. 2021 Friday M: Political News III– Vice President Mike Pence speaking at the Faith and Freedom Conference in Florida was heckled and booed as a ‘traitor.’  The offenders were escorted out and the vice president’s speech continues.  Meanwhile, there’s a growing clamor for Joe Biden to ask for the resignation of “Kooky Kamala” Harris so he can replace the gibbering jackal with someone actually willing to do the job.  There also is a new bill coming forward demanding that before Willie Brown’s mattress can visit Europe, she visit the southern border FIRST.  Wow.
  74. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas said today- without giving us a single incidence (other than the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, which is BULLS**T) that domestic terrorism, aka white ‘supremacism’ is the federal government’s number one foe, NOT Chi-Com MSS agents, NOT violent jihadists, NOT Russian agents, NOT Antifa (remember- they’re just a philosophy), and not Black Lives Matter but white folks.  We would encourage Secretary Mayorkas to begin putting up all the threats that have been stopped so we can have some verification that what he claims is true.  Otherwise, we look at it as little more than propaganda.
  75. 2021 Friday O: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The husband of Ashli Babbitt still seeks answers as to WHY a federal police officer felt so emboldened that he could shoot dead an unarmed woman climbing through a broken window and without warning of the impending shot?  Folks, everyone knows that what happened on January 06, 2021, has been transformed into mythic proportions but the black officer who shot her dead must come forward and answer the questions the American people demand to KNOW.  We believe that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- the nonagenarian clinging to the gavel in the House mandated that some people had to die so they could spin the FALSE FLAG OPERATION for the next 60 years which led to the death of Officer Brian Sicknick and U.S. military veteran Babbitt.  Call us ‘conspiracy theorists’ but don’t you think that it’s rather peculiar what actually happened with all of the lies we’ve been told?
  76. 2021 Friday P: Big Tech News– A major poll shows that the majority of Americans believe it’s time to break up Big Tech.
  77. 2021 Friday Q: Religion News– Catholic bishops are moving closer to denying Pro-Death Joe Biden communion over his crazy stance on abortion at all stages and the tacit approval of the selling of baby body parts which friends, puts us on a par with the frigging Chi-Coms.  We contend they should excommunicate EVERY politician supporting the Pro-Death Movement just as they should anyone seeking to topple the Hyde Amendment.
  78. 2021 Friday R: U.S. Senate News– Conniving Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, says he is ‘going to force a vote on S. 1, the former “For the People Act,’ newly renamed the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2021,” next week in the Senate and will do it sans any input from the Republicans.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday S: Economic News– The Fed’s Neel Kashkari advises against rate hikes until sometime towards the end of 2023.  Meanwhile, because of cancellations across 2020-2021, American Airlines has had to refund more than $12 billion in airline tickets.
  80. 2021 Friday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1669 with a $30 million pot on the line: 14, 36, 44, 46, 53, and Mega 18.  Out of 42,648 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $23,671.
  81. 2021 Friday U: The Wrap Up–  Late breaking news this evening says that- voila!- today, the Biden regime froze military aid to the Ukraine- including lethal weaponry.  This occurs smack dab on the heels of uh, the, uh, Putin-Biden summit in Geneva, Switzerland.  Now, we have been around long enough to recall that when President Donald J. Trump SUPPOSEDLY held up aid to Ukraine to ‘get dirt’ on the Bidens, Democrats impeached him- the first time.  Wow.  Where’s the little bitch, Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district?  What about that ogre, Rep. Jerrold “Tub of Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district?  Where are the calls for “IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!”  Where are they?  Not long after this report appeared, the Biden regime said it ‘was nonsense.’  Sure, right.  You gave Vladimir Putin the oil pipeline and now you’ve finished the job you and Barack Hussein Obama started; you are giving the Ukraine to Vladimir Putin.  My, my, my, the cockroaches always come out at night (and in Hawaii, they fly)…

[i] 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.

[ii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[iv] NONE of us believe we will live long enough to promote the music of Ravi Shankar although we wish we could.  Ditto classical music but then- you just never know.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of the Blues Project within the next five years or so.

[vi] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

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

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

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

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

[xi] At some point, we will do the music of Sonny & Cher the same time we do the Mamas and the Papas.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[xii] We hope to share the music of this legendary artist, the VOICE of the Summer of Love and far beyond.  “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…”

[xiii] 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.    “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band” appeared on Tuesday, 22-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[xiv] Not sure as to when we will do the music of Bruce Springsteen.

  62. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,033.67, DOWN 265.66 points (-0.77%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,039.68, DOWN 33.17 points (-0.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,223.70, DOWN -22.89 points (-0.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.46 per barrel, -0.69 (-0.96%).  The price of GOLD is $1,819.90 per troy oz., -41.50 (-2.23%) while the price of SILVER is $27.31 per troy ounce, -0.51 (-1.82%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,121.40 per troy oz, -20.50 (-1.80%) while the price of COPPER is $4.29 per pound, -0.10 (-2.19%).[xv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,789.54 per troy oz, +26.91 (+0.97%).[xvi] The price of RHODIUM is $22,800.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+2.24%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (-0.00%). [xvii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.40 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.36.     In Macanese Pataca, one greenback equals 8.00 and in Macedonian Denar, a buck equals 50.52 and in Malagasy Ariary, one dollar equals 3,764.12 of theirs.[xviii]        
  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 $4.227 per gallon, $2.962 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.625 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Minnesota: $2.858.  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- Lesotho: $3.766 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,413,747,338,681 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  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 India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 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).[xxii]
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, today is Day #85 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border calamity and not to have shown up for a single day’s work on the job.  Still, President Donald J. Trump will be visiting the Texas-Mexico border with Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, on June 30.  Many are speculating as to whether the laughing jackass border czar will rush down to the border for a quick photo op or won’t show up thereby proving our point, she is little more than a low IQ, empty pantsuit, the former ‘mattress’ of California Democratic Party bigwig, Willie Brown.  Ah, well, speaking of Governor Abbott, the patriotic Texas governor said that President Donald J. Trump set a ‘high mark’ for control of the southern border.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News shared the latest stats today concerning the border cataclysm: (1) Cost this day of caring for millions of illegal aliens: $585,083,840.  (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $182,502,932,480.  (3) Total numbers of illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 1,870,509.  (4) Estimated total number of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 35,870,508.  Note, we have said since 2009 at the blog’s inception that the total numbers were 35-50 million; now, we believe we have 75-100 million river-swimming, fence-climbing, and/or desert-crossing illegals in the U.S.  IF we deported ALL the illegals gobbling away at the benefits of being an American, rents and mortgages would precipitously drop, wages would go up, our students would become better-educated and would move through the educational system at a faster pace, Social Security and Medicare would be strengthened, and there would be far fewer Americans drawing unemployment and welfare checks.  There would also be less crime, fewer drunken driving fatalities, less rapes- especially of minors, fewer break-ins, less shop-lifting, you name it, our country would be in such better shape, it’s difficult to comprehend until you start comprehending it.  Yet, they want them here which to us verifies the veracity of the Replacement Theory.  Still, we say, BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  Update- “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is sending law enforcement officers to Texas and Arizona to help defend the southern border.  God bless him!
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fred Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, made the witty observation that the ‘Europeans LOVE decrepit old Joe Biden’ because ‘America is back.’  America is back meaning the U.S. will be footing the bill while the Europeans are allowed to renege on their obligations.  Speaking of Joe Biden overseas, the summit between he and Russian President Vladimir Putin failed to go the distance today.  Instead of going the full five hours promised by the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ it went about half that.  President Putin held a press conference first and ripped the U.S. leader a new one in subtle and witty ways while Joe then came out, held his, and we must say, the Aduhelm must have been working well today because we would give his press conference a C+ grade.  (Note- we don’t expect to see the feeble old perv for about a week now as he tries to recover from this challenging trip).   The two leaders apparently agreed to a return to the arms control treaty negotiations (all the while the Chi-Coms[xxiii] continue building a massive arsenal) as well as to the exchange of diplomats once again.  Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said it was ‘way too early for Joe Biden to be meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, says that the ‘new system for checking his citizens’ status for the Chi-Vi vaccine are NOT a vaccine passport.  (Good- because we are not going to get this crap anyway- see you in November, governor).  Next, a new report says that at a pop-up vaccination site in New York City, medical personnel carried out 899 ‘jabs’ using defective vaccines.  Say what?  Yet another reason to avoid this crap.  Elsewhere, the U.S. government has spent more taxpayer monies buying 14 million Johnson & Johnson vaccines for overseas export.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is ‘yet to get a response from either the National Institute of Health (NIH) or from Health and Human Services on his questions about the China Virus.  Senator- you won’t get a peep from either the NIH or HHS.  Next, brave scientists are calling for investigations into various ‘scientific journals’ that dismissed the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab leak theory.’  Excellent.  ‘Follow the science,’ folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris apparently trying to force a far-left agenda into the American economic system.  Not good, folks, not good.  Next- and this is the best one of the day- senile old Joe Biden is encouraging Americans to report radicalized family members, friends, and neighbors to the authorities so the RACE POLICE can swoop in and spirit them away in the dead of night to one of their black site secret prisons.  This smacks of the Gestapo’s Nacht und Nebel policy by which political dissidents disappeared during the dark of night.  Wow.   Meanwhile, the Biden regime releases its first list of top diplomatic nominees for overseas deployment.  Wonder where Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel will go?  Japan doesn’t want the POS.  Finally, Joe Biden is reversing yet another Trump Era policy by providing increased protections to tranny students, i.e., mostly ‘chicks with dicks’ students, what we used to call ‘exotics.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News– When reporters asked fumbling Joe Biden if he STILL THOUGHT that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a ‘killer,’ the usurper in the White House did his best “Kooky Kamala” Harris imitation and broke out in maniacal laughter before forgetting the question.  Friends, this is embarrassing to have a mentally-incapacitated dimwit in the White House.  This is, indeed, the SHAME of our country.  Speaking of our national embarrassment, Joe Biden claims to have given President Putin the ‘what for’ during their short meeting.  Question: when everyone returns to the United States, will the U.S. Congress demand that Joe’s interpreters appear before congressional committees and tell the lawmakers what was really said and how poorly Joe’s performance was?[xxiv]  Remember, after President Donald J. Trump met with his Russian counterpart, Democrats were demanding the interpreters testify to exactly what was said during the two leaders’ private meeting.  (Note- we don’t expect this will ever happen).
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger feeling intense heat down his backside is now going to investigate the missing ballots transfer documents and chain of custody.  From what we hear, there were more illegal ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, than anywhere else in the state and it’s clear that if an HONEST and IMPARTIAL audit is conducted, we will learn the truth.  We await more information…
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– New reports suggest that law enforcement recruitment is way, way down, while retirements are skyrocketing.  We imagine many law enforcement officers could find employment in Arizona and Texas, especially if those two states are going to continue fortifying their frontiers and creating their own statewide border patrols.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– New York City finds itself being consumed by a self-made problem: in midtown Manhattan, tens of thousands of ‘urban outdoorsmen’ have set up tent cities.  Wow.  Next, the House GOP seeks a review of BIG TECH’S close ties to the Chi-Coms.   In other news, Texas Democrats are launching a last-ditch effort to stop the Constitutional Carry Bill becoming the law of the Lone Star State.  Screw the little wimps. Elsewhere, Chicago Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot is seeking to halt alcohol sales after midnight.  Uh, what will this accomplish?  People will buy their liquor at 11:59 P.M.   Finally, Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Madeleine Dean, 4th congressional district, is NOT going to seek the seat of outgoing RINO Senator Pat Toomey.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, proposes changes to Dem-backed voting bill newly renamed from the “For the People Act” to the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” which means it’s still the same old shit, repackaged, and returned to the shelf.  NO one buy this stinking piece of crap bill.  Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, working on behalf of the family of Ashli Babbitt says information on her shooting death at the U.S. Capitol Building during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, is difficult to come by.  He is seeking answer as to whom the Capitol Hill police officer who shot her dead is and the circumstances as to WHY he shot her, an unarmed woman, attempting to climb through a broken window.  Moving on, GOP House and Senate members return to Washington, D.C., to hold their weekly conference.  Republicans- how about this: how about demanding answers as to WTF the Capitol Hill protesters are still locked up, mostly in solitary confinement?  IF you don’t defend these people, one day, the government will come for you.[xxv]
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Noted UFO filmmaker Jeremy Corbell says that when the UFO report comes out later this month, it will reveal uncomfortable truths for the American people.  Mr. Corbell told Rob Schmitt on Newsmax that the New York Times has said that the report will leave out the possibility of the technology being seen is a secret U.S. military program much less a Chi-Com or Russian program.  That will leave us with but one simple truth: it’s from somewhere else, NOT of this Earth.  Look, if it were Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, or North Korean, do you think they would not already be ruling the planet?  Of course it’s from somewhere else and that means there is little to nothing we can do about it except await its arrival.  Elsewhere, SpaceX supposedly ignored an FAA warning regarding the launch of its Starship SN8 launch in December 2020.  We are sure Elon Musk had good reasons to blow off the FAA.
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Amazon.com has introduced its new surveillance system to grocery stores.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3569 with a $55 million jackpot on the line as well as the Powerball Draw #855 with a $40 million pot on the line.  Stay tuned for tonight’s results…okay, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 01, 06, 21, 38, 39, and Mega 10.  Out of 147,354 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $16,603 apiece.  The tickets were sold at (1) Shell in Visalia, CA 93277; (2) Sunrise Market and Gas, San Diego, CA, 92102; and (3) Ronnie’s Market and Deli, Stockton, CA 95204.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 19, 29, 34, 44, 50, and Powerball 25.  In California, out of 40,139 winning tickets, the highest winners were 21 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $555 apiece.
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Sports News– NBA star, point guard, Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns is in COVID-19 protocols at the moment.  Not sure as to when he will be able to return.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Observation of the Day– Friends, there is BUT ONE WAY to STOP the tidal wave of illegal aliens pouring across the southern border and that is, the GOP must make a tactical decision with which to aid the overall strategy in combatting Joe Biden’s crimes.  We must make the tactical effort to reach out to the illegal aliens who are here, to make it appear that we are going to bring them into OUR FOLD.  We must make the Democrats believe we are recruiting illegals to become future GOP voters like the Democrats recruit children for immoral purposes.  We must enlist, recruit, and dragoon illegal aliens into becoming solid GOP members as once the Democrats realize they are losing on this battlefront, the trains, planes, buses, automobiles, and even empty freighters will be running 24/7/365 to get illegal aliens out of the country.  Once they begin shipping them out, we can throw the ones who helped us aboard those outbound modes of travel in the same way once the Indian Wars were over, General George Crook threw the Indian scouts onto the trains carrying the beaten Native Americans to the reservations.  It is a matter of saving the country so let’s make some tactical decisions NOW so our strategy can become reality at a future date.
  79. 2022 Thursday: Stick around and discover the events of the day along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Mike Love was the next Beach Boy to release a solo album, “Looking Back with Love” on October 08, 1981.  While Mike has sung some of the most well-known Beach Boys tunes, his songwriting talents were not always as good as the Wilson Brothers or Alan Jardine or Bruce Johnston, thus he gets panned by the critics.  Mike also was not as forward-looking as was say, Carl, in that he favored performing the ‘golden oldies’ while Carl and Dennis pushed the band to move forward into the future.  Still, fans of Mike Love ‘love’ the album which is why we have it here for your enjoyment.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

164. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JUNE 13, 2022

2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe- By our count, today is Day No. 83 for the so-called ‘Border Czar,’ the ‘Cackling Jackal,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this extremely important job and doing nothing except sitting at home watching Heckyll and Jeckyll cartoons. Speaking of “Kooky,” former Acting Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf told Newsmax that the ‘vice president’ has no excuse for not rushing down to the border NOW.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 297,146 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 162,503 deaths

  60. 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 $4.226 per gallon, $2.970 in Florida, $3.965 in Hawaii, and $3.617 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Maryland: $2.990.  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- Chad: $3.634 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,402,862,179,842 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 Taiwan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Hong Kong 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 position).[xvii]
  61. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day No. 83 for the so-called ‘Border Czar,’ the ‘Cackling Jackal,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xviii] to be in this extremely important job and doing nothing except sitting at home watching Heckyll and Jeckyll cartoons.  Speaking of “Kooky,” former Acting Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf told Newsmax that the ‘vice president’ has no excuse for not rushing down to the border NOW.   How much does she get paid per year?   Meanwhile, down in Texas, the Border Patrol announces the seizure of a stash house with more than 100 illegal aliens sitting in chain-link cages.  Next, Lara Trump told Newsmax that ‘residents living along the southern border may have to take security matters into their hands’- precisely what we have been saying for a long time now.  Arm up, go hunting.  Bring in the scalps.[xix]
  62. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Sadly, a report says that nine coalminers in Columbia died in a mine explosion.  Next, the Israeli Parliament held the vote today to form a new government and it looks like Benjamin Netanyahu is going to be out as prime minister.  He was voted OUT by a vote of 60-59. (Note- as soon as the bombs commence falling, the rockets and missiles come roaring in, and a new Intifada fires up, he’ll be back.  He’s the only one who can save them).  Elsewhere, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro found himself slapped with a fine for NOT wearing a mask.   In other foreign and overseas news, “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani blasts whoever is telling Joe Biden to ‘make nice’ with Iran saying, ‘we can’t cave to the Iranians.’  Speaking of the Iranians, they are saying there’s no way they are going to return to the JCPOA until AFTER their upcoming elections.  Moving on, the G7 leaders say they are going to ‘combat communist China, the Chi-Vi, and climate.’  Boy, we bet everyone feels safe.
  63. 2021 Sunday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– A Chi-Com bigwig came out today and called the ‘Wuhan lab leak theory’ absurd.  Straight from the horse’s mouth.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Chi-Com researchers claim to have found Chi-Vi strains genetically similar to the Kung Flu in 24 bats they have been studying.  Moving on, World Health Organization boss (and Chi-Com stooge) Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says that the ‘vaccine need far outstrips the pledge by the G7 nations to make the vaccines available to the developing, aka Third World.’  (Note- they can have ours- give it to them ASAP).  Meanwhile, the G7 is doing some chest-thumping demanding the Chi-Coms explain the origins of the Chi-Vi.
  64. 2021 Sunday I: Joe Biden News– A news report today says that ‘Joe Biden won’t be holding a joint press conference with Russia dictator Vladimir Putin hold their summit on the 16th.’  Of course, no explanation was given but let us give you ours: IF Joe and Vlad held a joint press conference, Vladimir would tear him a new one.  In this case, Joe’s handlers can put the earpiece in his ear and ‘Barack Hussein Obama’ can then speak through Joe’s mouth and say all sorts of garbage about how he put Putin in check.  Watch for it.  (As if this isn’t bad enough, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says the summit won’t be a ‘light switch moment’ (whatever that means).  Meanwhile, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he’s ‘looking for actions, not words from the ‘Putin-Biden summit.’  In other negative news regarding the Manchurian candidate, Grover Norquist told Newsmax TV that drooling ‘Joe is taking Jimmy Carter steps towards inflation.’  Yikes.  (Note- regarding the G7 Summit, President Donald J. Trump slams French President (the effete snob) Emanuel Macron (this guy has mother issues, too) for having ‘welcomed Joe Biden to the club.’  (Don’t worry, President Trump will be back.  Soon).  
  65. 2021 Sunday J: Political News I– The Republican National Committee says that it may not participate in future televised network debates unless drastic changes are not made to the format.  Good for them.  Next, GOP lawmakers reintroduce a bill with which, to club BIG TECH back into line.  Let’s see how that goes.  In other political news, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D-CA 12th congressional district, says she ‘still has not given up hope that Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, will see the light and support her election-stealing H.R. 1 and S. 1 in the U.S. Senate.’  Elsewhere, Democrats are upset because U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland will continue to use DOJ lawyers to defend President Trump from ‘rape allegations’ lodged against him while he was president.  Yikes.  Poor Democrats.  For the meantime, Rep. Mike McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says ‘it’s time we start hitting back at the Russkies for their cyberattacks on us.’  Amen.
  66. 2021 Sunday K: Political News II– The ongoing 2020 Election Audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, is attracting GOP political tourists from across the country to see how well it’s going there so it can be replicated in their home states.  Next, former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr and other top DOJ officials deny the FAKE NEWS story in which, claims were made the Barr-led DOJ subpoenaed the phone records of some Democrats in Congress to see who was doing all the leaking throughout the Trump administration.  Next, in a blow to liberal racists, the U.S. Supreme Court is going to hear the Harvard University race-based admissions case in which, Asian students are kept at arm’s length in favor of less-qualified black and Hispanic students.  Cool.
  67. 2021 Sunday L: The Wrap-Up– News reports said today that a ‘pandemic first,’ this past Friday, 2 million people were screened at U.S. airports.  Next, the Pentagon says it’s going to review the Missile Defense System.  Elsewhere, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca heard the cries of property and business owners in Venice Beach, California, and has sent sheriff’s deputies in there to clean up the vast homeless encampments clogging the beaches, overrunning the streets, and killing the city.  Although Venice Beach is nominally under the control of Los Angeles Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti’s LAPD, the LASD says they are not ‘displacing them but helping them.’  About f***ing time.   Finally, some nitwit writing for some left-wing rag says, ‘apple pie is now racist’- so says Raj Patel.  (Why don’t you worry about RACIST Pakistani foods, you sniveling POS?)  Oh, well- let’s eat some more of it…
  68. 2022 Monday: Let’s hope it’s a slow one today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys is yet another the critics panned with malevolent abandon: “L.A. (Light Album),” a record that came out on March 19, 1979.  Once again, we are going to deviate from the norm and go against the strident voices of the critics and to tell you that this album is phenomenal.  Sure, it might not be from the band’s classic era but folks, this album is stunning in its overall sound, musicianship, and as a guidepost of the group leaving the 1970s and jumping into the 1980s.  The opening tune, “Good Timin’,” is such a lovely song, one that harkens back to the earlier sound of the group when it was leaving the Surf Rock genre for the psychedelic/TM sound of the early to mid-1970s.  Sung by Carl, it’s a superb album opener.  Next, we have Alan Jardine’s “Lady Lynda,” another beautiful tune.  Next, is Carl Wilson’s “Full Sail,” which ranks among the top 10 favorites for many fans.  Absolutely evocative of longing amidst the deep blue sea.  Then, we have Dennis’ “Angel Come Home.”  The guy’s voice has gone to shit but the song is an absolute delight as is the following tune, another Dennis concoction, “Love Surrounds Me.”  Side One closes out with Mike Love’s “Sumahama.”  Good stuff.  Side Two opens with the epic remake of “Here Comes the Night,” only disco form which goes on for a stunning 11-plus minutes.  Excellent stuff and on the radio back in the day, all we can say is ‘wow.’  Then we have the emotional “Baby Blue” sung by Carl and Dennis, beautiful to behold.  Following that, we have Carl’s “Goin’ South,” followed by the closer, the Carl Wilson-sung, “Shortenin’ Bread.”[xx]  While some might question the closing tune, it remains one of our favorites to this day.  We hope you will seek this album out and make sure you add it to your collection as you will be glad you did.  You know what we say: “FUCK THE CRITICS, like it for yourselves.”

[ii] 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.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers soon.

[iv] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.  Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too.  Perhaps one day we will.

[v] We most certainly hope to promote the music of the famed Jerry Lee Lewis.

  60. 2019 Friday: In Game 4 of the 2019 NBA Finals, in Oakland, the Toronto Raptors beat the injury-plagued Golden State Warriors by a final score of 105-92 to take a 3-1 series lead.  Meanwhile, the United Nations says at least four million Venezuelans have abandoned their country since 2015 due to the out-of-control socialist government of Cuban-bought dictator Nicolas Maduro.  UN: Do something about it.  This is what the civilized nations did following World War II- this is your flipping job!

Currently, Joe is shy 164,864 deaths

  65. 2021 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,585 confirmed cases, 6,418 confirmed deaths, and 832,981 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country-  Singapore, 107th country on the list: 65,210 cases of the virus, 33 confirmed deaths and 61,660 confirmed recoveries.[ix]

The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (-0.00%). [xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.     In Guatemalan Quetzal, one greenback equals 7.71 and in Guinean Franc, a buck equals 9,757.00 and in Guyana Dollar, one dollar equals 207.28 of theirs.[xiii]        
  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.221 per gallon, $2.852 in Florida, $3.945 in Hawaii, and $3.603 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.301.  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- Dominica: $3.476 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,379,2427,836,049 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.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  After Japan, the Chi-Coms, Brazil, and the United Kingdom, Ireland holds about $300 billion of U.S. debt.[xvii]
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  Today is Day #77 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the laughing hyena, to be on the job and we supposedly have a sighting: she is going to discuss border issues with the Guatemalan government in Guatemala[xviii].  Wow.  Next, One America News shared the latest statistics on the ILLEGAL TSUNAMI overwhelming the United States this morning.  First, the cost to U.S. taxpayers this day alone: $539,091,968.  Second, here is the total cost to American taxpayers for the year 2021 in caring for the illegal alien tidal wave: $172,593,922,048.  Imagine what this money could do to help the American people?  We could end the mushrooming tent cities across the country.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the southern border in 2021 alone: 1,768,949.  Finally, here is the estimate by OAN of the total number of illegals in the country as we speak: 35,768,948.  (Note- the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day has long prophesied that the numbers as far back as 2009 when this blog began was between 35-50 million.  In 2021, we believe the numbers are closer to 60-80 million.  All of these people must be scooped up and deported out of the country with microchips embedded in their bodies so we can track them from here on out).  Elsewhere, the Bidenistas now are saying that people being granted U.S. citizenship will NO longer have to pass an FBI background check.  Say what? 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Voters are going to the polls in Peru today.  For president, they have TWO populist candidates from which to choose: (1) Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of a former Peruvian president and businessman Pedro Castillo.   Meanwhile, in Japan, popularity polls for aged Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga are at 37-percent.  And he just met Joe Biden!  Whoa.  Speaking of Japan, Japanese citizens are evenly split as to whether the 2020, uh, 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will proceed or undergo cancelation out of health fears.   Next, Israeli officials prohibit a ‘far-right group’ (what are they, Nazis?) of Jews from conducting a march through Jerusalem’s Old City.   Elsewhere, President Volodymyr Zelensky blasts Joe Biden for his ineptitude of lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline carrying natural gas from the former Soviet Union to former Nazi Germany.   Finally, while the Biden regime bumbles about, jihadist Iran is close to a break-out in months- if not weeks- of achieving nuclear weapons. 
  70. 2021 Monday H: (New Category) War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– Boko Haram’s leader, the thug Abubakar Shekau severely wounded himself when his thugs clashed with rival, ISIS-affiliated scumbags.  He tried to detonate a suicide vest so his enemies would not capture him.  However, he did not do a decent job so he could not go down to hell to commune with Shaitan and achieve his 72 virgins (and yes, young boys, too).  We guess his people were able to drag his mauled body away to safety.[xix]   Elsewhere, U.S. senators call for better regulation on cryptocurrencies as they are the number one way in which criminals and terrorists move money around and get paid for services.   Finally, the founder of the terrorist group, Hezbollah- Iran’s 74-year-old Ali-Akbar Mohtashamipour- died from a Chi-Vi infection.  Good riddance.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information–  After chaos ensued in the Big Apple over the weekend with the return of Chi-Vi curfews, lockdowns, and restrictions from Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, NYPD arrests at least 23 people.  NO bail for them.  Next- and as expected- following one California’s county making changes to HOW it collects COVID-19 fatalities data, Chi-Vi deaths in Alameda County collapsed by 25-percent.  Alameda County- home of Oakland, California- now is only compiling COVID-19 deaths only if the virus actually killed them, not that the victim merely died with traces of the Bat Flu in their system.  We believe that deaths formerly blamed on the Xi Jinping Virus were driven higher due to politics and financial grants and not because they truly are as high as claimed.  Politics, baby, it’s all about POLITICS.   Meanwhile, Stanford University epidemiologist and professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s credibility is completely shot.  Finally, a new report broadcast on Newsmax says that ‘rare genetic sequencing in COVID-19 suggest a Wuhan lab leak’ because it would appear the virus was modified in the lab and not in nature.[xx]  
  72. 2021 Monday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– A day after filing a lawsuit against the seemingly corrupt and fraudulent Dominion Voting Systems, the lawyer who filed it on behalf of mega-businessman Mike Lindell has resigned from the firm.   Meanwhile, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says that ‘probes into voter and election fraud don’t happen overnight.’ 
  73. 2021 Monday K: Social Media News and Big Tech News– A French government watchdog is going after Google by accusing them of abusing their market power in online advertising.  (Note- we could say much about Google, one of the most corrupt, crooked companies on the face of the planet but we won’t).   In other news, following Nigeria closing down Twitter over its ban of a recent tweet by that nation’s President Muhammadu Buhari, Jack Dorsey’s eunuchs began wailing that ‘Twitter is a human right.’  No, Twitter is FECAL MATTER, President Donald J. Trump should have shut them and their equally pathetic pansy buddies at Facebook DOWN.   
  74. 2021 Monday L: U.S. Supreme Court News– The United States Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that NO citizenship should be available to those given TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS.  They say that people given something ‘temporary’ should not then be granted something ‘permanent.’  Once whatever crisis ends from whence, they came, they must return home.  Period.   Next, the high court rejected a lower court case in which the ruling said that ONLY males could register for the Selective Service aka the Draft.  The court said it’s up to Congress to determine who can and who cannot be drafted. 
  75. 2021 Monday M: Moron News– Shame and humiliation continue to grow for Sandy “The Fly” Cortez (AOC) as people continue taking shots at her over telling her pobrecita abuelita NOT to take the $100,000 conservative commentator Matt Walsh raised in TEN HOURS to help “The Fly’s” granny.  Since poor abuelita has been told NOT to take the cash for house renovations by her granddaughter, GoFundMe will refund the money- nearly $104,000- to the hundreds of thousands of kind, caring donors.  In other Moron News, CNN’s Brian “The Schmeckel” Stelter is taking incoming fire over his ass-kissing, boot-licking interview with White House chief propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki over the weekend.  Stelter- who lost his testicles seemingly at birth- is nothing but a ground-kissing, brown-nosing POS.  We cannot imagine what he must do for Jeff Zucker to maintain his job…; next, California is forging ahead with giving SLAVE REPARATIONS to former slaves…seeing as how California NEVER had slavery, it seems rather stupid.  Still, a desperate governor will do anything to cling to office (but note- black people who signed the recall petition won’t get a dime and even worse, whatever they receive will be 100-percent taxable.  YOU heard it here, first).[xxi]  In other Moron News, ‘environmentalist’ (and angriest teenager alive) Greta Thunberg ‘is back’ with a new video.  So f**king what?
  76. 2021 Monday N: Health And Medical Alerts– there may be hope for drooling Joe Biden, “Mumbles” Pelosi, and vacant-eyed Senator Dianne Feinstein: the Food and Drug Administration- the FDA- has approved a new Alzheimer’s disease drug, the first in nearly two decades.  Biogen’s new drug- aducanumab will be marketed under the brand-name Aduhelm®.  While it might be way too late for nonagenarians such as “Mumbles’ and centenarians like ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ and Di-Fi, there may be hope for numerous others.  Thank you, Biogen.
  77. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden and his boss, Barack Hussein Obama are out there doing a quick-step as to HOW WONDERFUL Obamacare is even as Red States are severing ties with the socialized system of healthcare.  (Note- the two should take their act on the road).  Speaking of the regime, chief White House propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says press briefings will soon return to 100-percent capacity.  Elsewhere, after the GOP rejected Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan, the GOP rejected his counteroffer which led to drooling Joe to reject the next offer from the GOP.  (Note- news reports suggest that Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is having a hell of a time trying to push the regime’s agenda as things surrounding the usurper president continue to implode).  In other Biden regime news, a new poll says that with JoJo Biden in the White House, the regime is not enjoying an early bounce in Germany and France what with the (fraudulent) change in White House occupancy.  (Note- everyone KNOWS the truth- that’s why).  Finally, the regime claims to have recovered millions in ransom monies paid to the hackers who shuttered the Colonial Pipeline.  Good.
  78. 2021 Monday P: Political News I– As the U.S. birthrate continues to decline, questions arise as to whether the federal government should encourage its citizens to get married and to produce new generations of kids in much the same way Hungary and other nations have.  (Note- it seems like our country frowns on marriage, promotes legions of bastard children, and non-reproductive styles of living like homosexuality and transgenderism.  Maybe things would be better if the Russians and Chi-Coms took over?).   In other news, Megabank J.P. Morgan-Chase has announced it’s going to refuse donations to ALL Republicans who question the legitimacy of the illegitimate 2020 Elections.  (Note- that’s a bank brown-nosing the Dems for you).  Elsewhere, former Governor “Crooked Ed” Rendell, DS-PA, says of the ‘infrastructure plan’ that some ‘nontraditional infrastructure’ (like what, Ed?) should be left within it its thousands of pages. 
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Political News II– Kimberly Klacik, former congressional candidate and founder of the Red Renaissance PAC says the ongoing killings among black Americans with guns is  a left-wing cultural genocide.   Today, we learned that yesterday on Fox News Channel, the ignoramus Chris Wallace was trying to light into Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, over his defense of the filibuster and his refusal to join fellow Democrats in pushing the “For the People Act,” aka H.R. 1/S 1, the total theft of America’s elections system.  Wallace called the steadfast senator ‘naïve.’[xxii]  Elsewhere, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed two bills into law today, both of which deal with foreign threats and intrusions into the state.  The first law prohibiting foreign influence in the Sunshine State, singling out nations like Russia, communist China, Iran, Venezuela, Syria, Cuba, and other s—hole countries.  The second one singles out the Chi-Coms in particular forbidding them to establish Confucius Institutes and funding universities and newspapers with wagonloads of Chi-Com cash.  Good for you, Governor.
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump said (1) that Mark Zuckerberg broke the law with drop-boxes on Election Day.  He also said that cryptocurrencies are a SCAM, something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  When asked if he would run with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis in 2024 as his running mate, he said, ‘sure, it’s possible.’  Unclear as to whether he would run with Vice President Mike Pence again- we rather doubt it.  Elsewhere, Javier Villalobos becomes the first GOP governor-elect in the history of McAllen, Texas.  In a city 85-percent Hispanic and mostly Democrat, the people want someone willing to STOP the flood of illegal aliens.  
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News IV– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, along with Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that the popularity of the ‘America First’ rallies proves that power in the United States does NOT reside in Washington, D.C., but around the country among the American people.  Elsewhere, Boston Police Commissioner Dennis White is fired over claims of domestic violence at home.  Ouch.  Later in the day, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that ‘Dr. Fauci must go.’  Meanwhile, news arises that former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Republican, will challenge sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, DS-NV, in the 2022 Elections.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– we have three new nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Awards this year, the first being whacked-out psychiatrist Dr. Aruna Khilanani- who recently gave a speech on April 6, 2021, to students at Yale University School of Medicine in which, she talked about wanting to kill and bury white people.  Wow.  Next, Calvin Pearson and his dimwitted sidekick, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Jones, creators of the 1619 Project made the list, too, as both of them deserve the ‘Lavrentiy Beria treatment’ of ‘lead to the back of the head down in the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison in central Moscow- symbolically, of course (racist bigot- what were you thinking?).  The third and final person deserving of the treatment is Robin Di Angelo, the promoter of WHITE FRAGILITY who earns millions of dollars promoting this foul rot.  Congratulations.  You join our growing list.
  83. 2021 Monday U: Miscellaneous News I– A day or so before Kelly Stewart was to become the newest betting analyst at ESPN, she was fired over previously acknowledged tweets from nearly a decade ago, tweets she deleted, in which she called people attacking her ‘fags’ and other derogatory names.  Folks, at what flipping point does one’s past disappear?  At some point, it simply must, especially if the person acknowledges his or her fault and apologizes.  Enough is flipping enough already.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are going to build a nuclear reactor in Wyoming while Jeff Bezos is planning to embark on a suborbital flight into space within the next couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines makes Chi-Vi vaccine passports optional for its guests.
  84. 2021 Monday V: Nasa, Space, and UFO News– speaking of space, NASA administrator Bill Nelson, D-FL, says that ‘NASA scientists are investigating the U.S. Navy’s films of UFO incidents.’  Good.  This is a national security issue.
  85. 2021 Monday W: National Security News– Red State reports exclusively that the ‘highest-ranking defector to come out of communist China has been working with and being protected by the Defense Intelligence Agency. This defector- God forbid ‘Chi-Com Joe’ Biden gets ahold of his or her identity as unlike what the libs claimed President Donald J. Trump would do with the Russians, Joe Biden most certainly will for his Chi-Com masters that person will be in grave danger- has informed the DIA of all manner of clandestine weapons programs.  Not only this but the defector has also pointed to Chi-Com spies in the FBI, the CIA, and in several other sensitive government agencies.  This is NOT good.  Ferret out this scum and put them in prison.  Apparently, when FBI Director Chris Wray heard of this, he was ‘blindsided.’  This article must be read to be believed. [xxiii]
  86. 2021 Monday X: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former Alabama segregationist and Governor James Patterson, Democrat, dies at age 99.  We suspect that Joe Biden knew Governor Patterson and knew him well seeing as how the old coot knew all the segregationists.
  87. 2021 Monday Y: The Wrap-Up– In Pakistan, two express trains slammed into one another killing at least 51 people in the human-caused disaster.  Looks like Casey Jones driving the train was high on cocaine…(so sang the Grateful Dead[xxiv]).  In other news, the Biden regime is defending the indefensible upcoming meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin who is going to rip the feeble old Joe a new one on June 16, 2021, in Switzerland.  Speaking of drooling old Joe, people are asking WTF over his lack of any word on the 77th anniversary of the D-Day landings while he continues to flounder about the White House before returning home to Delaware or to Camp David on the weekends.  (We suspect his keepers dope him up with all manner of drugs to try to keep him in some sort of coherent state.  Wow).[xxv]
  88. 2021 Monday Z: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– tomorrow night’s Mega-Millions Draw #1666 as of today is worth $56 million.  We will share the results of the draw tomorrow night.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Brand new week and Vladdie is here.  Let’s see what happens today…

[xviii] Speaking of which, the Washington Post, aka WAPO, reports protesters met “Kooky Kamala” in Guatemala and held signs saying, “TRUMP WON!” and “GO HOME.”  Wow.  Even people in countries the Dems think are on THEIR side know the truth.  My, my, my.  God bless you, Guatemala, there is a way in which we do things legally.  Let’s do it.  Speaking of WAPO, their CEO is lambasting the Biden regime over its WAR on the FREE PRESS.  Say it ain’t so!

[xix] This POS tried to whack himself so as not to humiliate himself by having his enemies capture him alive.  However, it is much more humiliating to attempt to take one’s life and to fail in the act, especially when that same person is a big cheerleader for others to commit suicide bombings.  Loser. 

[xx] Rep. Michael Burgess, R-TX 26th congressional district told Newsmax that Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci must testify before Congress again.  The POS of won’t do it, Congressman,

[xxv] Hopefully, when Putin meets Susan Rice, uh, we mean Joe Biden, Putin won’t give slobbering Joe the ‘Engelbert Dollfuss treatment.’

2003 Thursday: On this date, President George W. Bush erroneously declares aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln, off the coast of California that “combat operations in Iraq are over.” The world comes to know this as the infamous “Mission Accomplished” speech as the insurrection against Coalition forces was soon to begin.

  64. 2003 Thursday: On this date, President George W.

  65. 2004 Friday: The European Union adds 10 new member nations to its growing body of European countries: Cyprus and Malta in the Mediterranean as well as Poland, the three Baltic republics- Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, and Slovakia.  The bumps up the population of the massive bloc to 455 million with the addition of the 75 million within these new states.  Wow.

  67. 2006 Sunday: In the United States, illegal aliens want to show the American people ‘what for’ by staying home from their jobs.  They want to show the American people that WE NEED THEM.  NO, we don’t need you and as many of us who are employers did back then, IF the illegals didn’t show up, we FIRED them and, in some cases, handed their information over to immigration authorities.  Look, we need to send the welfare folks out into the fields, and we would bet they would get better jobs ASAP.  Then, we could revive the Bracero Program that worked so well for decades.
  68. 2007 Monday: Four years ago, this very day, President George W. Bush stood on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and said- regarding the invasion of Iraq- “Mission accomplished.”  Almost as soon as the words spilled out of his mouth, the insurgency broke out and claimed more U.S. lives than the invasion did.  Anyhow, President Bush vetoed an Iraq War funding bill because included within it was more downtime between tours in the godforsaken country as well as increased training, better equipping, and hardcore benchmarks the Iraqi government had to meet.  The more we look back at events such as this, the more we believe George W. Bush did a HORRIBLE thing and that the Deep State and the Neocons propelled him into it.  We must always think of our servicemen-and-women ahead of regime change wars, especially when they are undeclared, and the entire nation is not behind the effort.  Meanwhile, a May Day pro-illegal alien immigration rally goes awry in the City of Angels today as out-of-control illegal alien loves got their asses beat by the LAPD.  Go for it.  
  69. 2008 Wednesday: Why this should matter to the United States is beyond us but President George W.

  71. 2010 Friday: The Washington Post publishes a story in which, two retired U.S. Army generals tell the reporter that the U.S. military is having a tough time with 25-percent of the population being obese and ‘too fat to fight.’  Perhaps we should return to a draft and get these punks back in shape?   Meanwhile, some member of the ‘religion of peace’ sets off a bomb inside a Mogadishu mosque sending at least two dozen people to visit with Allah sooner than they had anticipated.

  79. 2018 Tuesday: Another one bites the dust: the Dominican Republic, under pressure from the Chi-Coms, severs ties with Taiwan and opens diplomatic relations with Beijing.   Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than communists and socialists running amok in the streets?  In France, Paris sees some violent demonstrations what with car dealerships and fast-food restaurants being set ablaze.  Not good.  Maybe the authorities should utilize some lead on these scumbags?  Just saying.
  80. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr sits before the Senate Judiciary Committee, so he shag questions on HOW he handled the fraudulent Robert S. Mueller III report into ‘Trump-Russia collusion,’ since proven to be little more than a hoax.  Meanwhile, WikiLeaks founder receives a sentence of 50 weeks in a British slammer over his skipping bail back in 2012.  After that…he could be on his way to the United States.  Elsewhere, following the leak of a defense council meeting in Great Britain regarding the danger communist China’s Huawei poses the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May fires her Secretary of State Defense Gavin Williamson, blaming him for the leak.
  81. 2020 Friday: COVID-19 continues running amok and communist China continues acting like the Sgt. Schultz character on the old B & W TV show, “Hogan’s Heroes,” “We know nothing, we know nothing.”  Okay, be like that.  Anyhow, here are today’s statistics: around the globe, we have 3,033,296 confirmed cases of this mess, 235,290 confirmed deaths but 1,039,588 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,128,460 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu, 65,435 confirmed deaths, and 137,944 confirmed recoveries.  If you notice, confirmed deaths in the U.S. rose only 1,897 over the course of today while confirmed recoveries rose by 9,508 so folks, WTF?  Far-left fascist governors, quit behaving like you work in China and not the United States- that means you, Ralph Northam, which means you, Gretchen Whitmer, that means you, northeast liberal lunatic governors and that means you, J.B. Pritzker.  STOP behaving like Nazis!

Currently, Joe is shy 185,892 deaths.

  88. 2021 Saturday F: Political News I–  For some unknown reason (yeah, right), Democrats won’t get behind Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley’s bill with which to rein in BIG TECH.  The Dems are in bed with BIG TECH.  Next, legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the FBI raid on Rudy Giuliani’s townhouse was “UNCONSTITUTIONAL.”  Next (and we sincerely doubt this) the Democrats are acting as though they are willing to make concessions on the infrastructure bill they are trying to ramrod through Congress.    Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘D.C. statehood should not be granted through unilateral congressional action but through the amendments process as it should.’  The Democrats are angry.
  89. 2021 Saturday G: Political News II– Former U.S. Secretary for the Interior Ryan Zinke is going to run for one of Montana’s new U.S. House seats.  Elsewhere, the liberals are ginning up a buzz about U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer possibly going into retirement.  Boy, does the left want to get this guy off the nation’s high court so they can emplace another piece of fecal matter on the court such as the always-angry Stacey Abrams (God forbid).  Meanwhile, at a Utah state GOP convention, the good people of that state booed U.S. Senator Mitt Romney, RINO.  Good.   Finally, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom knows he is going to lose in November’s recall election because he is releasing 76,000 violent and repeat state prison offenders early.  He wants to make sure the people of the Golden State suffer at the hands of these Untermensch.   Thank you, governor, thank you.
  90. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– North Korea says that the Biden regime’s actions suggest the United States wants war with the Democratic Republic of North Korea.  Joe is taking us backward.   Elsewhere, further west in the scenic countryside of Afghanistan’s eastern Logar province, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ conducted a car bombing that propelled 27 unfortunate souls to the ‘other side’ while leaving many more suffering to one degree or another.  Many of the poor bastards were high school students.  Wow.  The Taliban are now warning of counterattacks on U.S. forces as today was the day for total withdrawal.[xxi]  Meanwhile, regarding the Bat Flu vaccine, Canada is putting a halt on the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to contamination fears at the manufacturing plant.  And the liberals SWEAR that the anxieties of vaccine receivers is what has led to blood clots and other reported problems and NOT the vaccine.  Yeah, right.  We’re with you, Canada.
  91. 2021 Saturday I: Miscellaneous News I– California is trying to get their hands on incarcerated Harvey Weinstein but the extradition request currently in on hold.  He is going nowhere (although we are surprised that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden’s regime has not yet sprung a fellow groper).   Next, the U.S. Army’s investigation into the death of Specialist Vanessa Guillen has determined that she was sexually abused, reported the abuse as she should to her superiors, and that nothing was done about it.  This is beginning to sound like the movie, “A Few Good Men” (1992) because at least 20-plus people at Fort Hood, Texas, are in trouble for this case and several similar other cases.  What is wrong with our military?   Elsewhere, citizens of the Empire State will soon see their electricity bills skyrocket as the last reactor- Indian Point 3- at the nuclear power plant closed today.  What is wrong with people?  Nuclear energy is the safest and cheapest way of creating electricity, but the Green Meanies have everyone terrified of nuclear power plants (thank you, “The China Syndrome” (1979).   Finally, in the era of feeble Joe Biden, both CNN and MSNBC have seen their ratings precipitously fall to the point where WE hope they go broke. 
  92. 2021 Saturday J: Mass Shootings News– In Green Bay, Wisconsin, tonight, people were having an enjoyable time at the Oneida Casino when a gunman strolled in and began blasting the place.  Several people were shot but at press time, the authorities had not yet shared information on the status of the victims.  The cops did get their hands on the shooter, however.  Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, today was a deadly day with two people shot and killed and another dozen shout and wounded.  We await status on these victims, too.  What is it in the era of Joe Biden that shootings are occurring all over the flipping place?  What is it about drooling Joe Biden? 
  93. 2021 Saturday K: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3556 with a $43 million jackpot on the line: 01, 06, 13, 22, 31, and Mega 13.  Out of 136,144 winning tickets, 23 people had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $945 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #842 with a $129 million jackpot up for the taking: 35, 36, 47, 61, 63, and Powerball 03.  Out of 64,388 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,331 apiece.

[i] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

[ii] When we do the music of Blood, Sweat & Tears, we will also do the music of Chicago at the same time.  Years ago, at the Google Blogger blog, we did the music of the third great horn band, Sons of Champlin. 

[iii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

[iv] As is the norm, we visit Martin Windrow’s amazing book, “The Last Valley,” De Capo Press (2006) as well as Time-Life Books for relevant information on this critical fight against communism.

[v] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

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

[vii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.  The album on which, “Brown Sugar” appeared- “Sticky Fingers”- was offered on Wednesday, 13-April-2016.  It was a wonderful addition to the band’s discography; we hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best rock music.

[viii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[ix]We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  Seeing as how Fleetwood Mac was among the earliest bands we ever promoted, we will have to pick them back up and present not only the music of the band that has come out since then but also the individual member’s solo projects.

[xxi] Sadly, we believe this is all by design because we believe the Military-Industrial-Political Complex does not want to pull out of this s—hole country.  Too much money is to be made supplying the military with the tools of the trade which means we want a ‘Gulf of Tonkin Incident’ to occur so decrepit old Joe Biden can mumble into a microphone, “We can’t leave.  We must stay and fight this evil” which means another generation of American youth will continue being killed and maimed.  WTF does it take to end a frigging war.  The new corporate form of government has been with us since George W. Bush took us to war in Iraq over NOTHING and will remain here until the American people stand up and say, “WE AREN’T GOING TO TAKE THIS CRAP ANYMORE.”  As an old man, I, Moses Scharbug III, most likely won’t be able to see it but I sure hope successive generations do.  This crap must end.

Bush signed legislation that authorized the design change of the nickel for release in 2004.  It was the first change to the coin in 65 years and commemorated the 200th anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase.   Elsewhere, the U.S. military leadership in Iraq announces that FIVE U.S. soldiers are under investigation for the theft of hundreds of thousands of dollars discovered in caches around the war-torn country.
  57. 2004 Friday: Crazed Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr declares he will employ suicide bombers against U.S. troops should they make a move on his militias in the city of Najaf.  American and Coalition invaders are overrunning parts of the country in their quest for ‘weapons of mass destruction’ and then stamping out jihadis that the Shiites are preparing to begin lashing back at the so-called “Crusaders.”
  58. 2005 Saturday: At a checkpoint between Israel and the Gaza Strip, Israeli Defense Forces capture a 17-year-old Palestinian boy trying to smuggle four pipe bombs into Israel.

  60. 2007 Monday: Boris Yeltsin, the first democratically elected Russian president, died in Moscow at age 76.   Elsewhere, as the U.S. military continues constructing a wall around a predominantly Sunni neighborhood in Baghdad, Iraq, thousands of Iraqis are in the streets demanding it STOP.  Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki orders the U.S. to halt further construction. 
  61. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  62. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  63. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  64. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.
  65. 2012 Monday: The trial of former senator and vice-presidential candidate John Edwards for misuse of campaign funds gets underway in North Carolina.  Elsewhere, famed bassist Chris Ethridge who played with the Flying Burrito Brothers[xi] (1968-69 / 1974-76 / 1990-93)—among other bands—lost his battle with pancreatic carcinoma on this date.  He died in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi, at the age of 65.  Next, the Iranians are angry because a malware attack has hammered the National Iranian Oil Company.  Sucks to be you.  Finally, the White House is launching an investigation into its advance staff in the wake of the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
  66. 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
  67. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  68. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  69. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, which would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  70. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University, and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  71. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  72. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease, but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  73. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland. 
  74. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 144,804,485 confirmed cases, +799,197, 3,073,868  confirmed deaths, +11,781, and 83,220,681 confirmed recoveries, +650,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,717,457 confirmed cases, UP 48,336 from yesterday’s reporting, 584,839 confirmed deaths, UP 10,421, (figures include today’s and yesterday’s)[xii] and 119,056,391 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.[xiii] 
  75. 2021 Friday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 260,967 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  76. 2021 Friday 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: 3,727,713 confirmed cases, 61,261 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,196,502 confirmed cases, 34,759 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,977 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Idaho, one of the few sane places left in the country: they have 186,081 confirmed cases, 2,029 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]   
  77. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,892 confirmed cases, 6,346 confirmed deaths, and 829,424 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian nations on the globe: 247,989 cases of the virus, 3,496 confirmed deaths and 185,107 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    
  78. 2021 Friday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,043.49, UP 227.59 points (+0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,016.81, UP 198.40 points (+1.44%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,180.17, UP 45.19 points (+1.09%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.04 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,776.70 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.05 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,232.00 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.08%).[xvi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,855.15 per troy oz, +18.52 (+0.65%).[xvii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xviii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 107.91 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71.[xix]  
  79. 2021 Friday E: 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 $3.981 per gallon, $2.802 in Florida, $3.760 in Hawaii, and $3.401 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $2.822.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,205,305,997,186 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  80. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.   Elsewhere, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, said that the illegal alien brats are in OBAMA-BIDEN CAGES and NOT Trump cages.  
  81. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden News I– Drooling Joe Biden found himself for being mocked as at his recent ‘climate summit’ with world leaders via ZOOM, he was the ONLY leader wearing a mask.  Ye gods, Joe, what the hell is wrong with you?  Dimwit.   Anyhow, when Joe concluded his summit, he said with gasping vigor, “We’re gonna do this.”  Big flipping deal, Joe.  Do it to yourself, NOT to us.  Next, totally whacked White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki crowed that ‘Joe Biden will be the first president to create 1,000,000 jobs in his first 100 days.’  Oh, please, stop it, we are laughing as hard as we can already.  Enough, dimwit!  Moving on, Joe Biden told Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he is going to call ‘the Armenian massacre a GENOCIDE.’  As it was, the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE the Ottoman Turks carried out against the Christian Armenian minority in their country during World War I.  (Note- it would appear that via this action, Joe is pushing yet another dictatorial nation into the Chi-Com-Russian-Iranian-North Korean-Cuban-Venezuelan camp for good.  Good going there, Joe).
  82. 2021 Friday H: Energy News / Infrastructure News– Much to the horror of liberals, 73-percent of Americans recently polled believe that fossil fuels and natural gas will be with us for decades to come.  Yes, people are interested in renewable energy but until it becomes cost effective and dependable, no one wants this crap.[xxii]  Meanwhile, a new report says that a new proposed gasoline tax is meeting with resistance on BOTH sides of the political aisle.   After the GOP put forth a sensible and less costly infrastructure bill and the left slapped it down, Senator Johnson said it’s all ‘partisanship and not concern for the American people.’  Speaking of infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., says that ‘Joe Biden should concentrate on CONVENTIONAL infrastructure’ and not this WOKE bulls**t.
  83. 2021 Friday I: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– Early today, Democrats began suing the state of Arizona for permitting the election integrity audit to begin and continue.  Later in the day, a judge called a temporary halt to the procedures for some inexplicable reason, but then permitted it to proceed late in the day.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that his team is advancing election integrity efforts across the country.  Elsewhere, New Hampshire passed SB 43 with which to carry out a forensic audit of the voting machines.  Citing the Windham Incident, in this one location, 1,143 ballots for Republicans were magically flipped over to Democrats.  These investigations are necessary.    
  84. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, RINO, is slamming the inclusion of Iran- perhaps one of the greatest persecutors of women and girls- onto the U.N. Status of Women Commission.  What a load of feculent crap to put a scumbag nation such as Iran on a global body such as the one mentioned above.   Meanwhile, following Tony Perkins- of Family Research Council fame- calling for a boycott on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chi-Coms now are trying to cancel him.  Permanently.    Elsewhere, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny is going to end his hunger strike.  Finally, Japan is declaring a state of emergency around Tokyo and three other areas due to surging numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  85. 2021 Friday K: Mass Shooting News / Law Enforcement News–  We learned that late last night in San  Diego, California, a mass shooting left one person dead and at least four injured.  We learned today that NBC once again rejiggered audio from the recent police shooting of Ma’ Khia Bryant who was in the act of stabbing another girl with an eight-inch blade.  As they did with George Zimmerman’s 911 call regarding Trayvon Martin, they edited and fabricated the police call so as to suit their narrative.  Folks, these lying scumbag networks should be fined and/or stripped of their broadcast licenses.   Meanwhile, Nicolas Cruz, the POS who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida back on February 14, 2018, in what we have dubbed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018- could go on trial for his life as early as this September.  (Note- we thought he had already copped to a deal).   Elsewhere, an alternate juror in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin says ‘yes, indeed, the mob intimidate us into finding the way we did.’  This verdict is going to get tossed.  Count on it.
  86. 2021 Friday L: Social Media And Stupid People News– After that big POS Los Angeles Lakers dimwit LeBron “Fecal Matter” James put up his most recent tweet about the cop who shot violent teen Ma’ Kia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, a few days ago, President Donald J. Trump says the turd should ‘focus on his NBA career rather than presiding over the destruction of the National Basketball League.’  LeBron James clearly learned nothing in school and worse, he is down on his knees in front of Xi Jinping doing the nasty for him every day.  C***sucker.  Speaking of LeBron and social media, millions are asking WHY Twitter banned President Donald J. Trump for ‘inciting violence’ while all the while permitting King James to make threats of his own via the platform?  Why?
  87. 2021 Friday M: COVID-19 News / Updates– Today, 33 colleges said that in order to return to classes in the next semester, ALL students will have to show proof they have been vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – with the help of Border Guru Stephen Miller- is suing the Biden administration over its hypocrisy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of illegals without testing them for the ‘VID while demanding states continue the bogus lockdowns the federal government imposes on them (if it can get away with doing it).  Moving on, the U.S. will now permit the use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations to proceed.  However, this comes on the heels of the CDC investigation yet another woman’s death- someone in her fifties- following vaccination for the Chi-Vi.
  88. 2021 Friday N: U.S. Government News– Ahead of their planned pull out, U.S. military is packing up its military hardware in Afghanistan while leaving non-military supplies such as office equipment and appliances behind for the Taliban to put to effective use.   In other truly embarrassing news, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, a true milquetoast if one ever existed, is going to permit U.S. diplomatic missions abroad to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag at the same level with the U.S. flag around the world.  Gee whiz, paint another target on our backs, will you?  Meanwhile, the Biden White House is nominating a ‘conservationist’- Tracy Stone-Manning- to lead the Public Lands Bureau.  Another left-wing loser to be sure.  Finally, SpaceX Dragon capsule blasted off today carrying FOUR American astronauts to the International Space Station.
  89. 2021 Friday O: January 06, 2021, Storming The Capitol / Capitol Hill Riots / False Flag Operations News– It appears that Capitol Hill law enforcement has grown fatigued by lying Democrats’ narratives on what happened on that fateful day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrated the ranks of Trump supporters and then set in motion the largest FALSE FLAG operation seen in the history of our country.  They are pushing back on recent claims by unnamed Democrats that they showed ‘bias towards the Trump supporters.’  They say they did not.   Elsewhere, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is demanding a FULL ACCOUNTING of the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick, someone whom we just learned died from natural causes and did not- we repeat, did NOT- have his head bashed in with a fire extinguisher as liberal fake news media and Democrat politicians have long claimed.   Tell us the truth.
  90. 2021 Friday P: State News–  Florida’s Supreme Court stopped a bid with which to legalize marijuana in the Sunshine State.  Good.  We have enough stupid people already.   Elsewhere, in California, Caitlyn Jenner makes it official- she is running for the governor’s job in the recall of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and some like that overweight, wig-wearing Joy Behar on “The View” are upset.  She was so upset, she kept using the wrong pronouns when speaking of Ms. Jenner which in the liberal WOKE world is a major faux pas.  Yet, liberals routinely get away with NOT doing as they say everyone else should be doing.  What a farce.  Next, in New York City late last night/early this morning, did their best to deface a monument in Central Park, one built to commemorate the loss of 260 U.S. Navy sailors who were killed when the battleship USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, Cuba, on February 15, 1898, the main event that propelled the U.S. into war with Spain.  Police arrested some of the rioters, but we are sure they left the slammer within hours of their arrest.
  91. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new study on elected officials who are the child of elected officials says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, vote to the LEFT of their parents when they were in office.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, said he ‘endorses Senators Murkowski and her RINO buddy, Susan Collins, of Maine.   Next, survivors of the Steve Scalise shooting criticize yesterday’s findings by the FBI that James Hodgkinson who shot up the Republican team preparing for the annual House baseball game back on June 14, 2017, did so because he wanted to die by suicide by cop.  This was the FBI finding we received yesterday and all we can say is that FBI Director Christopher Wray is full of fecal matter.
  92. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that New York state’s planned payments of $15,000 or more to illegal aliens is ‘unacceptable.’  It’s unacceptable when Americans need help, require salvation from all the Chi-Com Virus lockdowns and restrictions, and liberal left-wing government would rather care for INVADERS than for its own people.   Next, Kimberly Guilfoyle endorses former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens in his U.S. Senate bid.   Moving on, Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, vetoed a bill limiting gun restrictions.  He vetoed a bill that LIMITS restrictions on guns in the Natural State, for Christ’s Sake.   The man has demonstrated he is little more than a RINO.
  93. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Apparently, the President Trump 2020 Campaign left an unpaid view in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a $211,000 bill, one they are sending to collections.  Sounds like bull crap but then- we know how it is.  Speaking of President Trump, he may be leaving Florida to spend the summer at his New Jersey golf club.   Speaking of Florida, the okays a bill banning abortions based on disability.  Meanwhile, we learn that the United States Postal Service- the USPS, for Christ’s Holy Sake!- is now doing dirty work for the Biden regime by spying on conservative Americans.  Man, they must have amassed a humongous dossier on the AICPENDBLOG.COM by now.  What the hell is the postal service doing behaving like the Gestapo?  Has Stamps.com hurt them this much that they must take on jobs that have NOTHING to do with their daytime jobs?
  94. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News I– After a violent summer last year in \Minneapolis, Minnesota, BLACK-OWNED businesses in the city say the ‘city has abandoned them.’  These poor people watched Black Lives Matter and Antifa and all the hateful white punks (especially the banshees) screaming and rioting, looting, robbing, raping, and burning, and the damned Twin Cities need to do something to get them back on their feet!  What the hell does it take?  Where the hell is Patrice Cullors and all her millions of dollars?  Where is Joe Biden?  HELP these people.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post was slammed earlier today for their disgraceful ‘fact-checking’ on Senator Tim Scott’s ‘from the cotton fields to Congress’ statement awhile back.  Leftists are scumbags, what more can one say?  In other whack-job news, Climate Czar John F. Kerry says that the administration is exploring a BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX that will slap additional taxes, i.e., tariffs, on nations with weaker climate policies.  Folks, it’s time to make up NICE with Russia or China and seek asylum.  These people are cray-cray.
  95. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1653: 04, 28, 29,30, 60, and Mega 25.  Stay tuned for news on the winners… Out of 111,596 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $14,862 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,023 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,268 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 458 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

110. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2022

When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately. Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico. The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals. What a day that will be.

  61. 2007 Friday: The state of Virginia begins the observance of a day of mourning for the victims of the Virginia Tech Massacre.  Of course, people want to take guns away from law-abiding people but never from the criminals and the nuts who utilize them to commit evil acts.
  62. 2008 Sunday: The New York Times goes to press with a major expose on the Pentagon’s ‘military analysts program,’ a new department created by the Bush administration to spread positive propaganda about how ‘glorious’ things were going in Iraq in the war.

  70. 2017 Thursday: In Paris, a police van transporting criminals along the Champs Elysees suffers an attack by jihadists killing police officer and injuring two others.   Elsewhere, Australia beefs up its qualifications for one to become a citizen in their country by amending laws to demand stricter knowledge of the English language as well as a desire to become Australian and not remain some foreign-born piece of pond scum.  Wouldn’t it be great if the United States would do this?
  71. 2018 Friday: A federal court in Mexico declares sale of the controversial Barbie doll depicting artist, Frida Kahlo, cannot occur.  Not sure as to what the reasoning behind this is but folks, it is what it is.    Meanwhile, in the race for 2020, Senators Ron Johnson, R-WI, and “Little Bob” Corker, RINO-TN, opt NOT to endorse President Trump in the race for a second term.  Question is, “WHY?”  However, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that he will endorse President Trump for a second term.
  72. 2019 Saturday: Even though the Trump administration is going after ISIS, they still manage to cause damage and in Syria, over the past couple of days they have managed to kill at least 50 Syrian army soldiers and wound numerous others.  Doesn’t say much about the training given them by Russia or Iran.  Meanwhile, much to the dismay of the far-left liberals, the Mueller Report says, “NO Trump-Russia collusion but the possibility of obstruction still exists.’  Elsewhere, Central American illegal aliens trying to get into the United States are saying the Mexicans are abusing them as they hover around the southern border of their country and the United States.’
  73. 2020 Monday: The world continues suffering under the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis that is spreading around the world.  Today, we have 2,458,150 confirmed cases of the disease what with 168,906 confirmed deaths and 643,918 confirmed recoveries.   The Chinese claim 88,423 confirmed cases with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, the United States sees 789,439 confirmed cases what with 42,186 confirmed deaths, and 71,675 confirmed recoveries as of mid-day.  It is interesting to note that China’s figures change little from day to day which suggests they are either lying to the rest of the world or possess the cure which says a lot about communist governments.
  74. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 141,813,257 confirmed cases, +399,077, 3,027,182  confirmed deaths, +7,522, and 81,116,141 confirmed recoveries, +327,427.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,976,092 confirmed cases, UP 108,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 573,551 confirmed deaths, UP 924, and 119,041,372 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] 
  75. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 248,829 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, a new study suggests that the ‘VID can affect the lungs via the gums.  Elsewhere, the European Union announces it will restart receiving shipments of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine despite reports of RARE BLOOD CLOTS afflicting some recipients of the vaccine.
  76. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,720,794 confirmed cases, 61,006 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,178,783 confirmed cases, 34,533 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,779 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 388,842 confirmed cases, 5,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kansas, the home of the conservative Midwest: they have 308,518 confirmed cases, 5,005 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  77. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,309 confirmed cases, 6,342 confirmed deaths, and 828,761 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Kuwait, the supposed missing province of Iraq: 258,497 cases of the virus, 1,456 confirmed deaths and 241,696 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    
  78. 2021 Tuesday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,821.30, DOWN 256.33 points (-0.75%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,786.27, DOWN 128.50 points (-0.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,134.94, DOWN 28.32 points (-0.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.42 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,779.20 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.88 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,189.50 per troy oz, -6.80 (-0.57%) while the price of COPPER is $4.20 per pound, -0.01 (-0.21%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,761.73 per troy oz, -49.92 (-1.78%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.72%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.98.     In Icelandic Krona, one greenback equals 125.91 and in Indian Rupee, a buck equals 75.38.[xiii]   
  79. 2021 Tuesday E: 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 $3.974 per gallon, $2.818 in Florida, $3.749 in Hawaii, and $3.385 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.611.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,193,749,804,750 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  In other business news, Netflix fails to meet paid subscriber predictions which leads to a subsequent fall in its shares.
  80. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News– Stammering Joe Biden says he ‘hopes the jury in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin reaches the right verdict.’   Next, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob “The Jerk” Frey says, “No matter the verdict, George Floyd died at the hands of the police.”  (Note- the police are under HIS control).   We were wrong: Judge Peter A. Cahill reads the verdicts and Officer Derek Chauvin is convicted on ALL charges.  Officer Chauvin stands to face 40 years in the slammer although esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz believes that Maxine “Prune Face” Waters did enough to cause a mistrial (see below).  In an interesting aside, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, gave a schizophrenic statement thanking ‘George Floyd for dying, for calling out to his mother on camera’ so the Dems could utilize his untimely demise to benefit the ongoing attempt to transform our country into a socialist s**t-hole.
  81. 2021 Tuesday G: Social Media And Big Tech– The United Kingdom is considering launching their own digital currency, the so-called “Britcoin.”  Next, Facebook is developing new audio products, products with which we suspect they will listen in on their users’ conversations.  Elsewhere, Apple is going to permit Parler to be offered in its App Store.  Big flipping deal.  Speaking of Apple, they are going to reveal new products today in a virtual store.
  82. 2021 Tuesday H: RINO News– Not to be outdone by former House Speaker John “Too Much Flipping Tanning Booth” Boehner, former President George W. Bush has to chime in and add his two cents on the modern GOP.  He says the Republican Party is ‘isolationist, protectionist, and nativist,’ lamenting the fact that he failed to get ‘comprehensive immigration reform taken care of when HE was president.’  Sadly, Republicans knew what he and the RINO wing of the GOP meant when they talked about ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ meant amnesty for millions with a pathway to citizenship for all.’  We did not want that then, George, and we don’t want it now and if you want to make sure the Bush Family name remains toxic, continue talking, George.  Voting for another Bush would mean legalizing the illegal and another justice like the loser chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts.   IF Jeb were to run again, yikes, NO MORE BUSHES!
  83. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic-Socialist News– A new poll says that a large majority of the American people are concerned with the fact that Joe Biden appears to be a slobbering idiot much of the time.  We are concerned, too.   Speaking of Joe Biden, a Missouri college student is suing the Biden administration allowing trannys, i.e., chicks with dicks, into female-only college dorms.   Next, Michigan’s GOP announced they had discovered that Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer AND her staff took a secret vacation to Florida while demanding everyone else remain indoors wearing 4-5 masks.   Elsewhere, a new poll demonstrates that white liberals typically have far more mental problems than do everyone else.  We agree with that study.  Meanwhile, as criticism continues rolling in blasting Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, she dismisses it as ‘nothing’ even though she did the same thing that supposedly got President Donald J. Trump impeached a second time.   (Interesting note- “Prune Face” Waters sought a police escort when she landed in Minneapolis to the protest scene so she could stir the pot without having to fear for her safety.  Wow).  Speaking of “Prune Face,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pushing a bill to censure the decrepit old rabble rouser and to remove her from her committee assignments.  Go for it.  (Note- the Democrats blocked this move).
  84. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump says he is considering a run for the White House in 2024.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘Joe Biden turned his back on the people of his state by going after coalminers when 43-percent of the world’s energy is derived from coal.’  This is true, the United States is the ‘Saudi Arabia of coal’ what with the best here such as anthracite and bituminous coal beneath our feet.   Moving on, Senator Marsha Blackburn says that asking for Voter ID is NOT racist.  We agree.  One needs ID for everything else including welfare checks, liquor, and pot purchases, picking up tickets, buying cigarettes, boarding airplanes- unless one is an illegal alien- you name it, you must show ID so WTF?[xvi] 
  85. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Officials in Indiana reveal that laws regarding firearms in their state would have done NOTHING to have stopped the mass shooting at the FedEx facility a week or so ago.  Next, in Arizona, students can now attend school in person and without having to wear face masks.  However, when the state’s mask mandate ends in May, Oregon is considering passing a law that will require faces masks on everyone forever.  That is correct- FOREVER.  Crazy flipping left-wing socialists.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to reinstate the travel ban that protected the nation so well from the Chi-Vi pandemic.   Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, Ohio GOP lawmakers want to rename a state park for the 45th president.   Speaking of befuddled old Joe Biden, he backs a bill to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state.  People, just return the land to Maryland.  Enough!
  86. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News III– The U.S. ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, is coming home for consultations after Joe Biden continues slandering Vladimir Putin.  Speaking of Mr. Putin and Russia, the word from Moscow is ‘IF Joe Biden wants a summit with Mr. Putin, it will depend on U.S. actions.’   Elsewhere, in Florida, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signs a bill that will allow the state to tax $1 billion in online purchases.   Next, North Carolina won’t pass a bill banning youth tranny procedures.  NOT right.  Wait until you’re 18 and then if you wish to destroy your body, it’s ON YOU.   Meanwhile, Willie Nelson is encouraging Joe Biden to make the ‘pot holiday’ an official one.   Finally, like Gary Gilmore in Utah back in 1977, a death row inmate in Nevada, Zane Michael Floyd, wants the option of being executed via firing squad.   Finally, Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti, NOT TO BE OUTDONE BY FELLOW LEFTISTS, is proposing a universal basic income (that ONLY minorities will receive).
  87. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News IV– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that “WOKE” companies will feel a backlash in the aftermath of Major League Baseball withdrawing the All-Star Game and MLB Draft from the Peach State.  Meanwhile, a recent poll says that less than one-third of Americans are aware of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Joe Biden-Russia-Chi-Com connection.
  88. 2021 Tuesday N: Foreign News / Overseas News– Chi-Com President Xi Jinping gives a thinly veiled warning to Joe Biden not to pursue a path of unilateralism.  Meanwhile, General Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, says that ‘pulling out of Afghanistan will make the War on Terror that much more difficult to prosecute.’   Elsewhere, Bill Gates and loads of world leaders will attend the ‘Biden climate summit.’  This should be fun to watch.  Next, Russia’s defense minister says, ‘U.S. actions in the Black Sea are becoming increasingly provocative.’  We would advise Joe Biden not to send U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea as whatever senile old Joe sends would NOT be able to withstand a concerted Russian attack nor might Turkey allow the vessels to pass back through the Dardanelles to the Mediterranean.  It could be a real cluster-f**k.  Finally, Admiral Charles Richard, head of U.S. Strategic Command, issues a dire warning to the administration: the Chi-Coms and the Russians are modernizing their nuclear forces much faster than anything the United States is doing.  Sadly, WOKE issues for the Democrats are much more important than defending the nation.[xvii]
  89. 2021 Tuesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1652 with a $257 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 06, 23, 43, 49, 52, and Mega 05.  Out of 166,921 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,806,354.  The winning ticket was sold at the Richmond New May Wah Supermarket in San Francisco, CA 94118.

  91. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 567,674 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 202,919 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 455 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  92. 2022 Wednesday 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: 9,162,004 confirmed cases, 89,844 confirmed deaths, and 8,931,498 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,935,813 confirmed cases, 73,759 confirmed deaths, and 5,805,626 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 237,950 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,477,863 confirmed cases, 12,626 confirmed deaths, and 1,438,605 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Puerto Rico: they have 499,539 confirmed cases, 4,188 confirmed deaths, and 473,564 confirmed recoveries.[xx]

  95. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.696 per gallon, $4.106 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.682 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Louisiana- $3.869.  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 22nd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.348 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,397,730,855,439 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  96. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– It’s Day No. 56 in the Russo-Ukrainian War with no end in sight.  Germany says that by the end of the year, there will be no more oil coming into their country from Russia nor will there be any natural gas shortly after that.  They must know that President Donald J. Trump is returning soon, and that oil and natural gas will be flowing from the United States once again.
  97. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our glorious Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 383 days.  Worse, she has not shown up to do the job in 297 days.  By our count, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris regime’s illegal aliens since January 01, 2022, is $700,740,760.  Next, since the duo took their oaths to defend the country and its Constitution, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders is $42,446,546,503.  Since the first day of the year, we contend 1,119,308 illegal alien invaders have arrived in the country while the conservative low estimate of illegals believed to be in the country is 46,550,965.  We believe the truer number is between 85-to-125 million illegals which is an intolerable amount.  Good news: the 7th bus of illegals arrived in the nation’s capital today.  Dump ‘em out on the White House lawn.  Put them to work. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  103. 2022 Wednesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new poll of U.S. military veterans says the majority of them believe that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark A. Milley is BAD for morale.  Speaking of someone else BAD for the nation’s morale, Joe Biden sees only 26-percent approval among Hispanic voters.  This is not good for the regime.   Next, Joe Biden- well, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain or perhaps the Easter bunny- is demoting Acting ATF Director Marvin Richardson and bringing in U.S. Attorney Gary Restaino from Arizona to run the ship while his new nominee, former Ohio U.S. Attorney Steve Dettlebach tries to make it through confirmation in the U.S. Senate.
  104. 2022 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News II– In yet another sell-out by the Biden regime, the Bidenistas are canceling nuclear sea-launched cruise missile known as the SLCM-N, and the B83 gravity nuclear bombs designed.  It would appear that the administration is doing what Joe Biden and the Democrats always accused President Donald J. Trump- the legitimate president- of doing, being a stooge for the Russians.  Joe Biden and the Democrats surrounding him are the TRUE stooges of not just the Russians but of the Chi-Coms.   Twenty-fifth Amendment anyone?
  105. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News III– Supposedly, ‘Joe Biden’ held a confab with his top military generals today as events in Ukraine continue going from bad to worse.  Eastern European leaders however are journeying to Kyiv to walk the streets with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.   However, U.S. cybersecurity agencies and foreign allies are warning of massive Russian cyberattacks coming our way.  Oh, perish the thought.
  106. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News IV– The Centers for Disease Control have asked the Biden regime to ask the Department of Justice to appeal the federal judge’s slap-down of mask mandates on air travel.  Dutifully, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that he is going to contest the ruling, spending millions of taxpayer dollars with which to overturn an extremely popular ruling with the American people.  They just keep striking out on one issue after another that could help Democrats win in the fall.
  107. 2022 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th district, says that the Centers for Disease Control NEVER provided reasons for keeping masks on air travel.   Next, a new poll says that President Donald J. Trump holds an insurmountable lead over his closest possible Republican contenders in 2024 and a massive-massive-massive lead over losers such as Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, and U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell who would never run anyway.  His time in GOP politics is coming to an end within his next election cycle.  He’s going the way of Di-Fi.
  108. 2022 Wednesday R: Political News II- The Senate Majority PAC- a Democrat fund-raising monster- is rolling out a massive ad blitz to support crumbling Senator Tammy Baldwin, DS-WI, who is among many at risk of losing their seats in November.  The Democrats are rolling out massive ad campaigns across the fruited plain with which- or so they hope- to maintain some hope of holding a majority.  They stand better chance of dumping illegals in all 50 states and giving them the right to vote with 30-day residency which is why the GOP must go out NOW and begin recruiting the illegals to register GOP.  NOW.
  109. 2022 Wednesday S: U.S. Military News– In Ohio, the first ever Courts Martial of a U.S. Air Force Major General William Cooley is underway as jury selection commences.  The general is accused of forcibly groping and kissing a subordinate.  At least it’s not for refusing to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.
  110. 2022 Wednesday T: Big Tech News– Big Tech strikes again: Google takes down Hong Kong leadership contender John Lee’s YouTube account.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis- fresh from leading his state forward in the battle to force Disney to return to being at least, a neutral company, and at best, the American company that it once was is going after yet another WOKE target: Twitter.  The Sunshine State is threatening Twitter’s board of directors with a lawsuit over its rejection of Elon Musk’s buyout offer.  How can they do this, you ask?  Well, not considering an offer that would enrich ALL shareholders is a rejection of their fiduciary obligation to their shareholders and for this, the worthless company can be sued in court.   It is interesting to note that Governor DeSantis holds Twitter stock.  Not good for Twitter.
  111. 2022 Wednesday U: Big Tech News II– Another Big Tech icon sputtering into the wastebin of history like video shops is Netflix.  Having lost more than 200,000-plus users in recent months, shares of the online ‘video shop’ have fallen 23-percent.  Once Netflix went all WOKE, they, too, lost their allure, paying the Obamas hundreds of millions of dollars for some of the crappiest ‘entertainment’ on the Net.  How sad.  Meanwhile, it appears that CNN+ is doomed to circle the crapper, too.  Don’t these flipping liberals ever learn the hard lessons?  The American people are middle-right and don’t want all this WOKE CRAP.
  112. 2022 Wednesday V: Popular Culture News– Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania, by an 8-1 vote shot down an attempt by some sick f**ks to establish an afterschool Satan club.  These evil clubs operate in four other places around the country, opening a door to things better left alone by enticing young people that it’s all just, good clean fun.  Bullshit.  You know, you can tell when a culture is in its decline.  Here is how: (1) constant political strife bordering or leading to civil war.  (2) open borders and an inability to do what’s necessary to stop barbarians from flowing across it- namely, use of force to stop the invasion.  (3) loss of common culture, language, belief in God (4) embracing all things perverse such as homosexuality, perversion, chicks with dicks, mentally ill believing they are something they are biologically incapable of being (5) the acceptance of dark ‘religious faiths’ such as satanism, abortion on demand, the eradication of the sick, the infirm, the mentally challenged (6) the corruption, i.e., the sexualization of children, minors, and sexual abuse (7) rampant crime, especially violent crime, loss of law and order, abrogation of government’s duty to protect its citizenry from thugs and criminals (8) constant wars for no apparent reason, the worrying of foreign events over domestic events, the worrying about noncitizens over citizens, i.e., the replacement theory, which is indeed FACT, NOT THEORY.  Each of these things is bad enough but combined together and it’s the End of Times.  We have a leader who should be in the old folks’ home, and we are well on our way to the end of the line for the United States.
  113. 2022 Wednesday W: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3657 what with a $35 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 29, 36, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 111,308 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,284 apiece.   One ticket was sold at Bob’s Liquors in Redding, CA 96002 while the other was sold at Neighbors’ Market and Spirits in Galt, CA 95632.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #978 with a jackpot of $370 million up for grabs: 20, 30, 45, 55, 56, and Power 14.  Out of 94,565 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,235 apiece.

[i] We look forward to presenting the music of Grand Funk Railroad sometime in the late 2020s.

[ii] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

[iii] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[iv] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] At some point in the distant future, we hope to do the music of the famed rocker, Prince.  Be sure to remain aware for the day that we do.

[xvi] When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately.  Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico.   The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals.  What a day that will be.

[xvii] We have predicted since ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election that it would not surprise any of us if the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the North Koreans, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, the Cubans, and all the Third World countries in the orbit of Beijing were to act in concert against the U.S. and her interests.  What better opportunity would they have?  Unless President Donald Trump reenters the White House, we are sitting ducks.

  54. 2010 Friday: Rescuers search for over 200 people believed buried in their homes by a landslide in Murro do Bumba near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Meanwhile, ISIS is excited in that they are claiming credit for a recent triple bombing in Baghdad that blew up 40 poor souls and damaged some nearby embassies.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace’ strikes again- Islam.

  59. 2015 Thursday: The Federal Aviation Administration exempts Amazon.com from commercial drone flight prohibitions, which allows it to flight test delivery drones.  However, due to the amount of time it took to approve them, their drone fleet grew older, and they had to reapply for a new exemption.  Meanwhile, as ISIS continues spreading terror to the borders of other nations surrounding Syria, Iraq says the scumbags have murdered at least 52 Iraqi police officers working along their shared border with Syria.

  63. 2018 Monday A: Meanwhile, the FBI swoop down on President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen as they search for evidence of illicit payments from the Trump campaign to porn star, Stormy Daniels.  Cohen would flip on his boss but could not give federal prosecutors anything of value.  Next, comedian Bill Cosby’s retrial begins today.  The comedian is hopeful a new trial will clear him of all charges which he says are BOGUS.  Doping women and then doing them?  Come on, he’s ‘America’s dad.’

Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx continue demanding of the American people which is insane.  Some places are not suffering whereas some Democratic strongholds such as New York state and New York City continue racking up the losses.  Meanwhile, the Stock Market finishes UP which is awesome with the DOW Jones Industrial Complex closing at 23,719.37, up 285.80 (1.22%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,153,57 up 62.67 (0.77%), and the S & P closed at 2,789.82, up 39.84 (1.45%).  Real Clear Politics claims that President Trump’s approval ratings are +47 and -52.  Polls also claim that Vice President “China Joe” Biden is leading President Trump.  Bulls**t.  Finally, Chef Itzi Nakamura of the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believes that when the COVID-19 mess ends, the United States must reimplement the Two-China Policy, recognizing Nationalist China, aka Taiwan, as an equal to the mainland if not the legitimate ruler of the mainland.
  66. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS I– Various news agencies on the left (i.e., Fake News) are trying to clean up what Joe Biden said yesterday regarding all the restrictions he is going to slap on lawful gun owners.  Even CNN had to lay out the fact that the infamous ‘gun show loophole’ does not exist due to all the rules and regulations emplaced upon such events.  Folks, Joe Biden has NO clue what he is doing, saying, and damned sure thinking.  What the gun-grabber Democrats fail to understand is the American people are NOT going to hand over their firearms, their ammunition, and their accessories.  None of us are.  Federal law enforcement is going to find themselves in similar situations as the British did in the months leading up to the Revolutionary War, shooters behind every bush, every tree, on every rooftop, in cars, in back alleys, everywhere so any attempt at entering our homes and taking our firearms away is going to meet with disaster.  As Charlton Heston once said, “You can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.”  Remember this: there are MORE of us than there are of THEM.  Joe Biden did mumble that gun violence (which is committed by criminals, Joe) is a ‘public health epidemic or crisis’ or whatever it was he said.  Joe- tell blue state governors and mayors to turn the cops loose and go after illegal gun owners and crimes.
  67. 2021 Friday A: JOE BIDEN NEWS II– After Hunter Biden went on Jimmy Kimmel and told the host that the ‘laptop’ issue is little more than a red herring, news comes out that the laptop the computer store owner handed over to the FBI is indeed Hunter Biden’s laptop.  Hunter Biden who loves indulging in drugs and narcotics and sleeping with hookers and skanks and also has problems disposing of firearms properly should be doing time in federal prison.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s budget contains $131 million with which to combat domestic terrorism.[iii]
  68. 2021 Friday B: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Antonio Mayorkas is meeting with leaders and immigration advocates in Texas as the illegal alien invasion continues ramping up.  NO one seems to want to do what must be done.[iv]   Elsewhere, the Department of Homeland Security reports 19,000 illegal alien brats crossed the southern border in the month of March alone.  The cost to the American taxpayers per week is reported to be $60 million to house just the illegal alien minors.  People, load them on empty jetliners, fly them into San Salvador and Guatemala City and let THEM deal with getting them back to the parents.  Enough is flipping enough.  Next, Biden’s Border Coordinator Roberta Jacobson is stepping down from her post.  Apparently, it’s too much for her.
  69. 2021 Friday C: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II– the White House says there’s no basis to close illegal alien holding pens along the southern border over rumors of sexual abuse and rape.  His Health and Humans Services Secretary Xavier “Abort them All” Becerra is down there investigating the allegations.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration is begging non-governmental business to help mitigate the southern border crisis.  Hmmm, sounds like MORE bulls**t.  Elsewhere, Congressman Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the border crisis.’   Finally, Congressman Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district says that ‘Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris are terrified of visiting the border’ and seeing the horrendous misery they have caused.  Shame on them.
  70. 2021 Friday D: COVID-19 NEWS– the United States is sending three field hospitals to Argentina to help them deal with their COVID-19 pandemic problems.  Elsewhere, a mass vaccination site in Colorado using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine[v] had to stop vaccinations after inoculating 1,700 people as 11 became extremely ill and 2 ended up in the hospital.   Meanwhile, after Joe Biden labeled Texas political leaders for behaving like Neanderthals over their lifting of Joe’s demands for a mask mandate, COVID-19 is still under control.  In other shocking news, 246 fully-vaccinated residents in the Wolverine State tested positive for the ‘VID and 3 of them died.  Whoa.
  71. 2021 Friday E: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS– Joe Biden (well, the voice in his ear) is calling for the establishment of a commission to investigate expanding the U.S. Supreme Court as well as ‘maybe emplacing term limits on the sitting justices.’  Sounds rather like the plan “Prancing Pete” Buttigieg- now the U.S. secretary of the Department of Transportation pushed during the primary campaign.   
  72. 2021 Friday F: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I–  the United Kingdom and nations are around the world are mourning the death of Prince Philip- the Duke of Edenborough and Queen Elizabeth II’s husband.   Prince Philip was two months shy of hitting the century mark.  Many are pondering as to whether the person formerly known as Prince Harry and his boss Meghan Markle will attend the funeral.  IF we were the royal family, we’d tell Harry, “You can come but leave that nutty bitch at home.” In other news that broke late last night, Joe Biden is considering sending some U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea- a Russian flipping lake, for God’s sake– to make a show of force to Vladimir Putin who will soon be invading the Ukraine.  Also, the Chi-Coms said to the Biden administration that ‘if U.S. warships continue passing through the Straits of Taiwan, we could soon see Chinese naval assets patrolling the Gulf of Mexico.’  Wow.  Joe, Joe, Joe, WTF are you doing?  GOP senators say, ‘Joe Biden’s defense bill sends the wrong message to our enemies and allies.’
  73. 2021 Friday G: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– South Korea has agreed to help Iran recover assets frozen within their country if the mullahs will allow a South Korean tanker to go free.  Elsewhere, the Zionist Organization of America strongly opposes the Biden plan to lift ALL sanctions on the jihadist country of Iran without anything in return.  Others believe that Iran atomic talks could set the stage of U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken having a face-to-face with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.  The U.S. is making serious overtures to the murderous regime in Tehran if the mullahs will permit the United States to return to brown-nosing Ayatollah Khamenei’s gnarly, wrinkled ass.  Finally, La Soufriere, a dormant volcano on the eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent decided to come alive today.  Dormant since 1979, citizens of the island were surprised to say the least when smoke and ash began  pouring out of the peak and rolling down the sides onto nearby villages.  Government began evacuating people in the area.
  74. 2021 Friday H: DEMOCRATIC PARTY NEWS– The Wisconsin State Supreme Court rebuffs Republican lawmakers and won’t let them clean up the voter rolls.[vi]  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, says it’s time for the nation to ‘stop with the divisive politics.’  Joe- it’s YOUR party doing all the s**t talking.  Elsewhere, James Carville is expressing dismay that the Democratic Party is embracing identity politics and cancel culture.  Next, a recent report says that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was considering retirement before Donald J. Trump won the presidency in 2016.
  75. 2021 Friday I: REPUBLICAN PARTY NEWS– Senator Thom Tillis, R-N.C., underwent surgery for his prostate cancer diagnosis.  No word on when he will return to his duties.  Next, former Senator Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, slams the ‘disinformation campaign’ the Democrat Party is running against the new election laws in the Peach State.  Kelly, everyone knows the Democrats are LIARS.  Elsewhere, we learn that a Super PAC is backing Alaska machine RINO Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski which they are touting will defeat President Donald J. Trump’s plans to oust her.  This is going to be fun.  Murkowski must be humiliated and booted from office like the scurrilous POS she is.  Speaking of RINO garbage, former House Speaker and all-around loser John Boehner says in his new book (big deal) that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears full responsibility for the Capitol Hill Riots on January 06, 2021.’  Most now understand that those ‘riots’ were the biggest FALSE FLAG OPERATION ever run in this country’s politics.   Mr. Boehner: “F**K YOU.”
  76. 2021 Friday J: TECH AND BUSINESS NEWS– Netflix acquires streaming rights to all upcoming Sony movies.  Meanwhile, due to the massive tax hike plan in New York state, numerous businesses such as Jet Blue, J.P. Morgan, Chase, Citibank, and numerous others are all abandoning the state ahead of the promised tax increases.  Imagine if Tallahassee, Tampa, or Miami became the NEW financial capital of the world?  Empire State Democrats should be wanting to lynch Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov because once lost, those cash cows will NEVER return.[vii]  
  77. 2021 Friday K: ECONOMIC NEWS– McDonald’s is hiring for new positions across the country with 25,000 alone in the Lone Star State.   Meanwhile, Impossible Foods is in talks to go public sometime within the next several months through an IPO.  The company is valued at $4 billion.  Elsewhere, while under review, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is permitting the Dakota Access Pipeline to remain in operation no matter what sniveling activists say.  Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos and Amazon are dancing the jig today as Alabama Amazon employees voted 2-to-1 against unionization.   Next, Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida are suing the Biden administration to get the cruise line industry back up and running.  After all, if everyone follows CDC guidelines, WHY can’t the cruise lines return to business?
  78. 2021 Friday L: 2020 ELECTION NEWS, FRAUD, THEFT, AND CORRUPTION NEWS– The Arizona election audit is moving along at a snail’s pace but all because of the actions of Maricopa County Democrats who seem to feel they answer to NO ONE other than themselves.  We would hope that Governor Doug Ducey emulate the actions of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, GOP, by firing obstinate Democrat election officials who will not hand over all information related to last year’s elections.   Elsewhere, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger refers three counties for ballot drop box probes.   New Hampshire also is ordering an audit of 2020 Presidential Election votes after reams of evidence came to light showing that a fairly sizeable portion of Republican votes mysteriously switched to Democratic votes not only for president but for some down-ballot races.
  79. 2021 Friday M: NATIONAL NEWS– Texas is implementing a $4.3 million plan with which to mitigate the homeless problem which mostly is in the liberal bastion of Austin.    Next, President Donald J. Trump blasts Governor Asa Hutchinson over his veto of the transgender-tranny-chicks with dicks- ban.  He says, “Bye-bye, Asa.”  Speaking of the 45th president, he gave his endorsement today to Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL.[viii]  Elsewhere, rapper Earl Simmons, aka DMX, is dead at age 50 from a drug-induced heart attack.  His 15 kids by different baby mamas were all trying to get in and see their beloved daddy before he gave up the ghost.
  80. 2021 Friday N: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 134,038,180 confirmed cases, +1,108,348, 2,904,554  confirmed deaths, +19,153, and 76,188,672 confirmed recoveries, +752,117.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,201,770 confirmed cases, UP 83,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 565,507 confirmed deaths, UP 1,060, and 118,883,459 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.[ix] 
  81. 2021 Friday O: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 236,964 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.  
  82. 2021 Friday P: 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: 3,691,435 confirmed cases, 60,142 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,111,807 confirmed cases, 33,968 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 30,673 confirmed cases, 470 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 375,408 confirmed cases, 5,367 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Colorado, the state that reaped a windfall when Major League Baseball stripped the mostly black city of Atlanta of the All-Star Game and relocated it to the mostly white Rocky Mountain State: they have 476,630 confirmed cases, 6,200 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[x] 
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 835,641 confirmed cases, 6,280 confirmed deaths, and 824,748 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Ecuador, home of the Cuyabeno Wildlife Preserve: 341,649 cases of the virus, 17,115 confirmed deaths and 290,314 confirmed recoveries.[xi]

  85. 2021 Friday S: 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 $3.926 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.724 in Hawaii, and $3.335 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.016.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,151,463,572,701 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  86. 2021 Friday T: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk is being added to New York’s WACB lineup.  Elsewhere, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, is preparing for a major speech at the Women for America First Summit even though Democratic enemies are trying to destroy him.  We believe the man is as clean as the wind-driven snow.  Elsewhere, former Hennepin County forensic pathologist Lindsey Thomas who retired in 2017 testified at Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s trial today that the cause of death for George Floyd was the deprivation of oxygen that occurred because of the way Chauvin and the other officers restrained the perp.  She said she arrived at this conclusion from watching the video.  Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas Baker more or less said the same thing.  
  87. 2021 Friday U: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Next, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear signs a partial ban on “NO KNOCK” warrants such as the one that led to the death of EMT Breonna Taylor when police burst into the apartment she shared with her boyfriend.  The boyfriend began shooting first and Ms. Taylor died in the subsequent crossfire.  The officers involved in the mishap were cleared but fired and Taylor’s boyfriend who was facing loads of charges had them dropped.  Finally, Black Lives Matter continues demonstrating it’s built atop a foundation of deceit as a cofounder of the group- Patrisse Khan-Cullors just bought a $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon, which many critics are pointing out ‘ain’t exactly the ‘hood.’[xviii]

[i] 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.    Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[ii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope that a generous portion of this money goes into investigating the rash of BLACK Democrats assaulting Asian-Americans.  Sadly, for the Dems, very few whites are committing the crimes they would like the world to believe they are committing.

[iv] We encourage militarizing the southern border by moving military bases along the southern frontier.  We also support laying in minefields and other human, vehicle, boat, and even air obstacles to prevent illegals from swarming into the country.  We believe they should seed the Rio Grande River with baby alligators scooped up from the Deep South and relocated west just as we support Black Ops going into northern Mexico and eradicating all human traffickers through clandestine operations.  Without control of the border, both the United States and Mexico will collapse with Canada following along behind the two countries within 5-10 years.  This is an example of a true existential crisis and unless we begin behaving like we want to save our country, our nation is going to be lost.

[v] We oppose this vaccine due to tissues from aborted fetuses being used in both its study and its manufacturing.

[vi] What more proof does one need to determine that yes, indeed, the scumbag Democrats STOLE the 2020 Elections.  They robbed President Donald J. Trump’s second term from him (they will rue the day they did not give him his second term because when he returns in 2024, he will be so on top of his game that the Democrats are going to cringe in the corners like the beaten wives and brats they are.  Moses Scharbug III has said, “Julius Caesar never wanted to become dictator, his political enemies forced him to become one and man, oh, man did they rue the day they did.

[vii] Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that the ‘tax plan in New York state,’ the one providing $15,000 checks to illegal aliens and felons- is “absolutely insane.”

[viii] President Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, says the odds President Trump running for a third term in 2024 is above 50-50.

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

[x] 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.

[xviii] Friends, black lives do indeed matter, but this is a perfect example of how a civil rights movement can quickly become parasitic as the money flows in like manna from heaven- as it has to BLM due to all the WOKIES out there- unscrupulous leaders feed off this newfound wealth while nothing changes for the people truly deserving of the help.  Shame, folks, shame.  Not too late to awaken to the smell of bulls**t and do something about it.  (Note- we remember that President Barack Obama’s reverend of 20 years- Reverend Jeremiah Wright did much the same thing when Obama paid him to go away.
