Thankfully, the January 6 Committee held its final hearing this past Wednesday to show its final findings and to make some BS recommendation regarding President Trump.  I hope that each of the panel’s members meet the same end as those who tried to deny Julius Caesar what was rightfully his- another run at being consul.  His jealous enemies got theirs one by one…

  55. 2009 Wednesday: The Obama regime announces it is going to withdraw 4,000 soldiers out of Iraq by the end of next month.  This will allow terrorist supergroup ISIS to begin growing like a virulent cancer.  Should keep them there, Mr. President.
  56. 2010 Thursday: Somali pirates seize a Panamanian -flagged freighter off the coast of Africa and capture the Indian crewmembers aboard it.  Elsewhere, jihadists in southern Baghdad attempt to rob a bank.  The crime results in at least two Iraqi police officers and a civilian killed, another four wounded, and the perps in the wind.  We will stay tuned.
  57. 2011 Friday: Vocalist with Smokey Robinson and the Miracles- Marvin Tarplin- died in Las Vegas, Nevada, at age 70.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration carries out a major strike in the global war on terror, this time in Yemen when a drone strike blows to bits radical jihadist cleric- and American citizen- Anwar al-Awlaki.  Good.  Send this POS howling to meet with Allah, it’s been long overdue.
  58. 2012 Sunday: Spain announces it expects its debt levels to increase in 2013.  Elsewhere, the ‘religion of peace’ strikes again- this time in Bangladesh.  After a RUMOR hits social media in which, a BUDDHIST man posted a photo supposedly critical of the ‘religion of peace,’ Muslims rush out, burn down four Buddhist temples and at least 15 homes owned by Buddhists.  Folks, when is the ‘religion of peace’ going to undergo a reformation and enter the 21st century?
  59. 2013 Monday: Pope Francis announced during a meeting with cardinals that he would canonize two of his most influential predecessors, John Paul II and John XXIII, the following spring.

  61. 2015 Wednesday:  In the fight to destroy the Taliban and to aid the Afghan army, the U.S. and Coalition aircraft begin launching airstrikes on Kunduz.  The Afghan government’s counter-offensive against the Islamist scum appeared to be faltering so air support was beefed up to help them in their fight.
  62. 2016 Friday:  The United Nations says that the Syrian city of Aleppo is a “Humanitarian Crisis” as peace talks between the Syrian government, its allies, and the ISIS criminals, falters.  People are being bombed, they’re being strafed, they are starving to death, and disease stalks the weakened among them.  And the U.S. military-industrial complex wants the United States to involve itself even deeper in this quagmire.
  63. 2017 Saturday: The Trump administration’s Health and Human Services Director Tom Price resigns his position today after being blasted and criticized for misusing funds.  No proof is ever offered but you know the libs- they never stop.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Beijing ahead of President Trump’s visit to the communist nation.  Elsewhere, Canadian American game show host, Monty Hall of “Let’s Make a Deal” fame dies at age 96.
  64. 2018 Sunday:  The Federal Bureau of Investigation- after being bullied by Democrats- announces that it is expanding its probe into the supposed wrongdoings of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  The Dems are trying to smear the stellar judge in their attempt to deny him a seat on the high court and to repel President Donald J. Trump’s second SCOTUS nominee.
  65. 2019 Monday:  As testimony in the growing impeachment inquiry by the Democrats to take out the 45th president, Donald J. Trump tweets that he should be able to ‘meet the so-called whistleblower’ whom most believe is a lying POS.  The Dems will do everything possible to protect his identity, but we know who he is.   Meanwhile, the “Pro-China Joe” Biden 2020 campaign asks the TV networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani.   They accuse the president’s lawyer of ‘spreading lies about the candidate and his son, Hunter.’  Funny thing is, on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, the U.S. Senate committee investigating the Bidens and their corruption- especially in the Ukraine and in communist China demonstrate that Hunter’s actions were indeed ‘criminal’ and in need of further investigation.  Not looking good for you, Joe…
  66. 2020 Wednesday: Reviews regarding last night’s first 2020 presidential debate continue coming in with most believing that President Trump was debating not one but two people.  Moderator Chris Wallace- who should be stripped of all future debates- did everything he could to help keep “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s head above the roiling waters.  Today, the former VP is on a ‘train tour,’ running from Cleveland, Ohio, to Johnstown, Pennsylvania.  Crowds are incredibly sparse for the stumbling bumbler.  It would appear that in last night’s debate, President Trump utilized the same strategy he employed in his VP debate with Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI, Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick.  In that ugly 2012 matchup, Biden interrupted, derided, and lampooned Mr. Ryan.  It was ugly, it turned off millions of viewers, but everyone said, “Joe did a hell of a job.”  Whoa.   At least Telemundo, the Spanish language juggernaut in a poll released last night, one we reported, that viewers said Trump won the matchup by an overwhelming 66-percent to 33-percent.  Latinos love their blood sports.  The Atlantic Magazine says the ‘rest of the debates should be canceled.’
  67. 2020 Wednesday A:  In New York City, more than 100,000 mail-in ballots have gone to people with the incorrect information emblazoned on them.  The state says it will make things right; however, what will happen with the messed-up ballots and who will be responsible for their destruction?  Things continue going from bad to worse.   Meanwhile, Glenn Beck reports on his program this morning that in Harris County, Texas, Joe Biden surrogate Dallas Jones was caught red-handed in a scheme to have hirelings fill out more than 700,000 mail-in ballots.  An investigation featuring former federal law enforcement officers busted Jones outright.  We hope this situation can be repaired and that the participants in, yet another fraudulent vote theft shenanigan find themselves busting rocks in Leavenworth, Kansas, for 30 years.
  68. 2020 Wednesday B: Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be meeting with 10 senators on Capitol Hill today even though most Democratic senators are keeping her at arm’s length.   Speaking of Capitol Hill, Lindsey Graham’s Senate committee is grilling fired former FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey virtually today, trying to pull answers from him about the scam of Crossfire Hurricane and the attempt to bring down Donald Trump, both as candidate and as president.  This man must do time in federal prison.  Graham says, ‘what happened at the FBI and the Obama Justice Department is a system failure.’  Elsewhere, the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’- Disneyland- says it will begin laying off 30,000 workers due to the harsh shutdown restrictions imposed upon the entertainment destination by Gov. Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Finally, failed Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer- a woman who keeps her stated in the lockbox while permitting her husband to drive around the state and to take his boat out on whatever lake he chooses- announces that she is extending the CHI-VI lockdown that was set to end tomorrow until at least October 31.  What a pity.
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: A judge in Las Vegas, Nevada, rules that Mandalay Bay Hotel and Resort is liable for the $800 million payout to the victims of the October 31, 2017, mass shooting that occurred on its property.  The shooter, Stephen Paddock, carried load upon load of what turned out to be firearms, ammunition, and surveillance equipment and then began shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival from several adjoining windows 32 floors up.  By the time law enforcement and hotel security got around to storming the hotel room, the damage was done, and the shooter lay dead, slain by his own hand.  Meanwhile, the police chief of Los Angeles, California, says that attacks and assaults on police officers have skyrocketed by 156% from this time in 2019.
  70. 2020 Wednesday D: TV ratings for last night’s first presidential debate are 64 million viewers.  It is interesting to note that the Proud Boys, brought up in last night’s debate by moderator Chris Wallace (a failure and a partisan hack) added Trump’s words to both their logo and t-shirts: “Stand by and stand back.”  No one asks “Pro-China Joe” Biden to disavow Blacks Lives Matter, Resist Fascism, or Antifa.  This leads us to speculate that since the Proud Boys jumped in with the t-shirt, that they are receiving funding from the SAME FINANCIAL SOURCES that are also funding the left-wing groups.  Once again, this confirms to us that the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are the ones funneling money to all these violent groups as it serves their overall purposes: the destabilization of the United States and its institutions.
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: On Neil Cavuto’s show, guest Charlie Gasparino tells Neil that many of his Wall Street friends and colleagues fear substantial changes in tax policy as well as regulations should Joe Biden win in November and has a Democrat House and Senate.  A ‘President Joe Biden’ would return the mandate to the Affordable Care Act which would end full-time employment and return the norm of 28 hours or less per week.   No matter what Dems about say about the humongous economy of the Obama-Biden years, it simply did not exist- Obamacare kept every job ‘part-time’ except for union jobs and they were able to avoid Obamacare costs because the administration gave them carve-outs.   Elsewhere, the Sunday afternoon game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans has been postponed due to a number of Chi-Vi cases among the Titans.  Stay tuned for further developments.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 400,671 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 3,407 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xi]    Let us look at one other Mississippi: $2.818.  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- Norway: $8.013 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,823,035,177,448 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, shared the shocking news today that a tidal wave of 120,000 illegal aliens or more are marching north to the U.S.-Mexico border.  Yet, the Biden regime again is going to court to try to counter the U.S. Supreme Court order demanding the reinstatement of President Donald J. Trump’s highly effective “Remain in Mexico Policy.” Still, the Biden regime is doing everything it can to counter any border controls by trying to get an executive border or a bill shoved through that will restrict border apprehensions and expulsions.  Joe wants EVERY ILLEGAL POS to remain in the country.
  82. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Kim Jong Un offered once again to reopen the hotline between North and South Korea while denouncing the ‘hostile actions of the Biden regime.’  Later in the day, the regime celebrated the successful firing of its new antiaircraft missile system.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, a court convicted former French President Nicolas Sarkozy of campaign finance violations.
  83. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– GOP senators have joined forces to draft a bill with which to HALT the use of COVID-19 passports by the feds.  Next, United Airlines fires 593 of its employees today because of their refusal to accept the Chi-Vi vaccination. 
  84. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.01 (2) AstraZeneca $60.06 (3) Johnson & Johnson $161.50 (4) BioNTech $272.99 (5) Moderna $384.86.

  89. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– As Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue plummeting and he is booed at public events, people are gravitating towards the idea that “Kooky Kamala” Harris could be the nation’s next ‘president,’ her poll numbers are beginning to inch up ever so slightly.  Next, an AP-NORC poll shows a deep divide between Americans over Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.  Democrats now love them (whereas last year, they said anyone who received one would have to be a dimwit) whereas Republicans are skeptical.   Adding to Joe’s woes, former Ambassador Nikki Haley said of Joe Biden turning up at the congressional baseball game that feeble old Joe ‘chose baseball over serious work.’ As if that is NOT bad enough for poor old Joe, Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-MO 4th CD, said of the recent hearings on Capitol Hill in the Senate and House regarding the debacle in Afghanistan, that ‘it’s clear that Joe Biden lied on the troops and the situation.’
  90. 2021 Thursday O: Political News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, is now echoing Joe Biden because she says that the BIG SPENDING BILL will cost the American taxpayers ZERO DOLLARS.  That’s right- ‘Mumbles’ say it will cost NOTHING.  Next, Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st CD, is facing ethics problems of her own (Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC) because of taking expensive gifts and other benefits that a congressional member is forbidden to do.  Add that to Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th CD, and her woes over having committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother, and it would appear that the infamous squad is beginning to come apart at the seams.
  91. 2021 Thursday P: Political News II– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, questioned LinkedIn over its censoring of journalists on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party.  Meanwhile, Special Counsel John Durham announced new subpoenas today for people swept up in the Russian Collusion Scandal, the scheme the Obama regime used to destroy President Trump.  Next, Rep. Jay Obernolte, R-CA 8th CD, told Newsmax today, “Don’t count out Nancy Pelosi’s negotiating skills when it comes to getting the spending bills passed.’
  92. 2021 Thursday Q: U.S. House of Representatives News I– Tensions soared on Capitol Hill today as the Democrats vote to suspend the debt ceiling.  Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, said it’s highly likely that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, will push the vote on the massive spending bill BACK as the old warhorse won’t take anything to the floor unless she has the votes- and the progressives in HER ranks are fighting her tooth and nail.
  93. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Military News– Sadly, a new report says that suicides among U.S. service members jumped by 15-percent in 2020.  Next, the U.S. Marine who famously hoisted the Afghan baby over the wall at Hamid Karzai International Airport back in August and who spoke- for just a moment and did so NOT in uniform- is now under investigation.  L. Cpl. Hunter Clark is being investigated for appearing briefly at a political rally while his superiors- like Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin- can go political all the time, he faces possible disciplinary actions.  Perhaps boneheaded actions such as this could explain why suicides in the U.S. military have gone way UP.  Shame on the leaders, shame.  Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says of Chairman Milley that he should have spent more time on Afghanistan and communist China policies than on politics.  Rep. Scott DesJarlais, R-TN 4th CD says, ‘there’s a lot of finger-pointing going on regarding the mess in Afghanistan.’
  94. 2021 Thursday S: Fake News I– ABC News is being slammed for having selectively edited an interview with former President Barack Obama when he said- more or less- that a country cannot survive without borders.  ABC News cut out all comments made by the 44th president regarding the right of the United States to determine who comes in and who does not.  Is there a breach between Joe Biden and his former boss?   Next, CNN finally steps up and admits that the U.S. Border Patrol’s mounted officers were not whipping the poor HAITIAN INVADERS after lying for an entire week about it.
  95. 2021 Thursday T: Sports News I– Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3-0) at the Cincinnati Bengals (2-1-0).  The Bengals pulled it out with a field goal beating the Jaguars by a final score of 24-21.  Wow.  We thought the Jags were on the way to their first victory.
  96. 2022 Friday: Observation of the Day As you know, this past Wednesday, the FINAL installment of the January 6 Select House Committee came and went without much import.  These people are so bitter, so demented, and so insane that they think if they keep swinging away at the cast iron Donald J. Trump pinata, that somehow the viewers will say, “Wow.  They really do have something.”  Folks, they don’t have crap.  They can show ‘new video footage’ just as they can show ‘new emails and text messages.’  Oh, boy, we can show you far more because from the video footage we’ve seen on Newsmax, One America News, and even Fox News Channel, it sure looks like all manner of criminality was occurring on the side of the Capitol Hill Police and not the Trump supporters.  I, like most of the rest of my colleagues understand that what we saw on January 6, 2021, looked nothing like Trump supporters but a well-orchestrated mob of Antifa thugs and BLM garbage.  Swirling flags, people dressed in black, people climbing up the sides of the Capitol Building, cops standing idly by or briskly waving in the mob.  They cannot clean this up nor can they convince anyone that what we witnessed that day is different that what we saw.  We know what we saw- we saw an orchestrated coup in the manner of what Erdogan did in Turkey a few years back.  It’s all smoke and mirrors and we all understand that.  Good riddance to the J6 Committee.  I hope they burn in hell.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

  62. 2015 Tuesday: As the European Union Muslim ‘refugee’ and ‘migrant’ crisis continues causing problems for the nations of Eastern Europe, Hungary says, “ENOUGH!” and seals its border with Serbia with rows and rows of concertina razor wire.  This strands loads of Muslims in a country with a negative history towards followers of the Prophet Mohammad.

  66. 2019 Sunday: Famed member of the East Coast rock band, the Cars[v]– Ric Ocasek (guitars/vocals/keyboards 1976-1988 / 2010-present)- is found dead in his home in New York City on this date; he was 75.  Meanwhile, Hong Kong freedom protesters outside the British Embassy find themselves under fire from the authorities with tear gas and water canyons.  Protests there are growing in momentum as the people continue protesting the Chi-Coms.
  67. 2020 Tuesday: Hurricane Sally is expected to become a Cat 1 storm when it makes landfall later today along the coastlines of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.  Residents are bracing for the worst and FEMA is on site.  Meanwhile, at the White House, the foreign ministers of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates are signing the historic peace agreement hammered out by the Trump administration between those Arab nations and Israel.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is also there signing the documents along with President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!
  73. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,995.60, UP 2.27 points (+0.008%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,190.32, UP 133.67 points (+1.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,401.20, UP 17.66 points (+0.52%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.90 per troy oz., -4.30 (-0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $27.34 per troy ounce, -0.119 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $978.40 per troy oz, -3.80 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, -0.006 (-0.20%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,417.50 per troy oz., +8.00 (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.39 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.29%).  Today, COFFEE is $124.30 per metric ton, +1.00 (+0.81).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.78 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them.  Today, communist China’s ally, the World Trade Organization released a ruling that says ‘the U.S. violated international regulations by imposing trade tariffs on $278 billion of Chi-Com goods entering the U.S.’  Stop the crying, Beijing, this is NOTHING ruling, and the U.S. will continue punishing you, authoritarian SOBS.
  74. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,150,151 confirmed cases, +480,596, 4,671,400 confirmed deaths, +8,373 and 203,826,456 confirmed recoveries, +454,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,432,847 confirmed cases, UP 144,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 684,572 confirmed deaths, UP 2,231,[vi] and 32,244,493 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,709.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]   
  75. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 366,118 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 37,960 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  76. 2021 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: 4,518,943 confirmed cases, 67,632 confirmed deaths, and 2,378,010 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,499,061 confirmed cases, 49,254 confirmed deaths, and 2,413,074 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 73,268 confirmed cases, 671 confirmed deaths, and 72,597 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 615,582 confirmed cases, 7,153 confirmed deaths, and 258,825 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New York: they have 2,423,298 confirmed cases, 55,269 confirmed deaths, and 2,116,680 confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  77. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,202,212 confirmed cases, 7,452 confirmed deaths, and 1,112,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Pierre and Miquelon, 213th area on the list: 31 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 30 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  78. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,814.39, UP 236.82 points (+0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,161.53, UP 123.77 points (+0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,480.70, UP 37.65 points (+0.85%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.60 per barrel, +2.13 (+3.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,795.20 per troy oz., -11.90 (-0.66%) while the price of SILVER is $23.89 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $941.90 per troy oz, +3.20 (+0.34%) while the price of COPPER is $4.41 per pound, +0.09 (+2.06%).

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

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

[xvii] IF the charges against Gen. Milley are true- and we pray they aren’t- his name will fall alongside those of Russian FBI spy Robert Hanssen and CIA traitor Aldrich Ames.  Names that every time they are heard cause patriotic Americans to spit.  This scumbag, Gen. Milley, says that ‘his calls to his Chi-Com ‘counterpart’ (we believe, MASTER) were designed to prevent conflict between the Chi-Coms and the U.S.  Folks, we believe that Milley is a creature of Beijing.  This is definitely NOT good.

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022

2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus. Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated. We knew something was wrong with these vaccines. It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House…

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 91

EVERYONE’S FAVORITE GERMAN CHEF: FRITZ SCHLEPENDRECHT

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022:

President Herbert Hoover; Supreme Court Associate Justices Joseph McKenna and Ruth Bader Ginsburg; U.S. Attorneys-General Edmund J. Randolph and Joseph McKenna; U.S. Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary James Loy; U.S. Interior Secretaries Orville H. Browning and William P. Clark Jr.; U.S. Secretary of State Edmund J.

  1. 70 Sunday: The Roman legions under the command of General Titus set the Second Temple of Jerusalem alight during the Great Jewish War.   The Romans had laid siege to Jerusalem due to a Jewish uprising and their murdering of a retreating Roman legion given ‘safe passage.’  This put in motion events that would lead to the destruction of the city, the ‘Wailing Wall’ being the only part of the city the Romans were unable to tear down.  Eventually, survivors who managed to escape the dying city would flee to Masada where the Romans would follow and destroy them.
  2. 654 Thursday: Cardinals elect Eugene I to succeed Martin I as Pope of all Christendom.  As the 75th Roman Catholic Pope, Eugene I would serve from today until June 2, 657.

[iv]

  56. 2016 Wednesday: Candidate Donald J. Trump slams the ‘dishonest news media’ for misinterpreting his comments on how a ‘President Hillary Clinton will abolish the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.’  Sounds like the truth to everyone with half-a-mind or more; let us see who wins in November…
  57. 2017 Thursday: U.S. President Donald J. Trump announces that opioid addiction in the country now is a national emergency.  It has been for quite a while thanks to the People’s Republic of China continuing to ship fentanyl and other opiates into the United States as a reverse opium war of sorts.  People, time to start pushing the Chin back.  Meanwhile, as the #MeToo Movement continues to grind on, a sobbing Taylor Swift announces that deejay David Mueller groped her in Denver, Colorado.  Uh, okay…
  58. 2018 Friday:  The U.N. Committee on Human Rights receives word that the Chi-Coms have one million Uighurs- at least!- in concentration camps in western China where they provide slave labor to American sports team making gear and other paraphernalia while being indoctrinated with ‘how great Xi Jinping and Maoism are’ while being forced to surrender their religious beliefs.  Yet, American sports stars look the other way, folks, look the other way…
  59. 2019 Saturday: In Bucharest, Romania, anti-government protests break out that lead to at least four hundred citizens being injured.  Meanwhile, in a San Francisco court, Monsanto is hammered with a massive payout of $289 million to gardener Dewayne Johnson who contracted cancer from using the weed killer Round-Up.  [v] Elsewhere, police find financier Jeffrey Epstein dead in his jail cell, apparently from a self-inflicted hanging.  No one knows anything…
  60. 2020 Monday: The Chi-Coms today sanctioned 11 U.S. politicians or business heads, all of them Republicans or with organizations promoting democracy, seemingly in a feeble attempt at ‘punishing America’ for punishing them over their misdeeds in Hong Kong and elsewhere as well as for giving the world the Chinese Bat Plague.  Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, here are today’s statistics:  
  61. 2020 Monday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 19,936,547 confirmed cases, +202,119, 732,467 confirmed deaths, +3,855, and 12,144,510 confirmed recoveries, +142,973.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,159,740 confirmed cases, UP by 38,647 new cases, 165,118 confirmed deaths, UP by 477 new deaths, and 2,511,602 confirmed recoveries, UP by 13,023 new recoveries.   
  62. 2020 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 561,911 confirmed cases, 10,359 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,498 confirmed cases, thirty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,548 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,445 confirmed cases, 1,695 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  63. 2020 Monday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,791.44, UP 257.96 points (+1.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,968.36, DOWN 42.63 points (-0.39%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,360.47, UP 9.19 points (+0.27%).  Currently, GOLD is at $2,039.00 per troy oz., DOWN -0.70 (-0.03%), SILVER is at $29.36 per troy oz., UP 0.094 (0.32%), PLATINUM $1,006.10 per troy oz. UP +3.40 (+0.34%), and COPPER is at $2.87 # +0.005 (+0.34%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.00, UP +0.06 (+0.14%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.96 Chi-Com yuan.  In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
  64. 2020 Monday D: President Trump begins a press conference in the White House Press Room when an aide interrupts him and leads him away.  Apparently, shots were fired a few blocks from the White House.  Moments later, Secret Service had it under control and the president reappeared and continued his press conference.  He answered all questions and when done, exited the room. Currently, “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads the president in national polls by 49.2-percent to the president’s 42.00-percent. 
  65. 2020 Monday E: Speaking of the Chi-Coms earlier, the MSS begins arresting pro-democracy figures across Hong Kong, including arresting media mogul Jimmy Lai and his son, among others, as the communists begin implementing their new bogus ‘security law.’  The time is coming when the United States is going to have to give the commies in Beijing a major black eye.  How a return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as a free, independent nation, and the rightful ruler of the mainland.  FREE TAIWAN!  FREE HONG KONG!  FREE TIBET!  FREE MACAU!  FREE UIGHUR MUSLIMS!  DEATH TO COMMUNISM!
  66. 2020 Monday F: A U.S. military helicopter out of Joint Base Andrews was hit by groundfire over Middleburg, Va., today, wounding one crewmember aboard.  The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing at a regional airport in Manassas.  The FBI is investigating.  Meanwhile, over the weekend in Chicago, thirty-four people are shot, three of them fatally.  Will it never f—ing end?  How long have Democrats controlled the Windy City?
  67. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 204,776,810 confirmed cases, +678,265, 4,326,877 confirmed deaths, +11,390 and 183,901,366 confirmed recoveries, +624,986.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,892,215 confirmed cases, UP 111,754 from yesterday’s reporting, 634,662 confirmed deaths, UP 864, [vi] and 29,966,321 confirmed recoveries, UP 43,480.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]  
  68. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 315,875 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 88,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  69. 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: 4,076,572 confirmed cases, 64,852 confirmed deaths, and 2,129,828 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,827,450 confirmed cases, 39,934 confirmed deaths, and 2,306,339 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 47,376 confirmed cases, 543 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 498,096 confirmed cases, 6,235 confirmed deaths, and 235,124 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Utah: they have 441,131 confirmed cases, 2,511 confirmed deaths, and 421,906 confirmed recoveries. [viii]    
  70. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 910,569 confirmed cases, 6,571 confirmed deaths, and 867,747 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Isle of Man, 175th location on the list: 5,658 cases of the virus, thirty-three confirmed deaths and 4,821 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  71. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,264.67, UP 162.82 points (+0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,789.09, DOWN 72.09 points (-0.49%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,436.75, UP 4.40 points (+0.099%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.09 per barrel, -0.19 (-0.28%).  The price of GOLD is $1,735.10 per troy oz., +3.50 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $23.42 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $998.40 per troy oz, +11.40 (+1.16%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, -0.02 (-0.46%). [x]   The price of PALLADIUM is $2,642.54 per troy oz, +1.70 (+0.06%). [xi] The price of RHODIUM is $19,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $780,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,589.50 per troy oz., +4.75 (+0.18%).  [xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000022.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.     In Myanmar Kyat, one greenback equals 1,642.00 and in Namibian Dollar, a buck equal 14.80 and in Nepalese Rupee, one dollar equals 119.07 of theirs. [xiii]        
  72. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt AND Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.392 per gallon, $3.018 in Florida, $4.093 in Hawaii, and $3.875 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Montana: $3.292.  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- Zimbabwe: $5.113 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,626,623,832,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the United Kingdom, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 140 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 46th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $532,913,238.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,703,429,068.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,486,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,486,823. [xvii]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– House Republicans are demanding that the Department of Homeland Security explain why it has become so easy to swarm across the U.S.-Mexico border into the United States.  Illegal aliens are overwhelming the country and DHS is standing idly by.  This is becoming an invasion.  Because of the problems along the border, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has offered articles of impeachment for U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea threatened today to begin working anew on its nuclear weapons programs and missiles because South Korea and the United States are back to holding joint military exercises.  Elsewhere, a Chi-Com court upholds a death sentence imposed upon a Canadian ‘drug trafficker’ Robert Lloyd.  Canada should take note of this outrage because as a junior participant in the fraudulent 2020 Elections in the United States via their Dominion Voting Systems machines, look at how their Beijing masters have rewarded them- death sentence for a Canadian citizen.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci warns that ‘vaccine mandates are coming following full approval by the Food and Drug Administration of the various emergency use Chi-Vi vaccines.  (Note- Mike Lindell said at his symposium today in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, that the FDA can clear a drug for emergency use only if no other treatments of any kind exist for whatever the disease is.  This means that Democrats, RINOs, and the media assaulted President Donald J. Trump anytime he mentioned safe and cheap hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, they went berserk and tore great hunks of hair from their bald pates.  Interesting to know, Mr. Lindell, thank you).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, he and the Centers for Disease Control are finding themselves slammed with multiple lawsuits over the draconian lockdowns and harsh restrictions the mercurial Dr. Fauci and his partners in crime continue forcing on the American people.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Joe Biden says he likely does not have the power to interfere in various states’ anti-mask and anti-lockdown mandates but sure the heck is looking into it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– If one does not believe that communist thugs hold power in the United States, think again.  As Mesa County, Colorado, elections clerk Tina Peters was on her way to join Mike Lindell’s 72-hour cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, today, while she was aboard Mr. Lindell’s aircraft, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, Democratic-Socialist, and a ban of flunkies raided the election offices of Mesa County.  Denied entry to see what was going on over the course of the 3-4 hours the political hacks rooted through everything like hogs, sticking their snouts into every crevice, every nook, and every cranny, they were unable to witness the events, nor were they informed as to what the storm troopers removed.  Americans must take note of these fascist tactics.
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: 2020 Election Audit– Dominion Systems is suing Newsmax for reporting that the Canadian-based company whom the AICPENDBLOG.COM alleges works for the Chi-Coms.  Mike Lindell’s three-day cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, SD, continues exposing just how devious the voting machine company appears to be.  It is going to be difficult for this corrupt company to stand stark naked in the bright light of day so the more patriotic Americans and other patriots around the world call them out, the sooner we can achieve answers and rectify and repair the damage Dominion Systems has caused the world.  Additionally, Mike Lindell and his team of cyber experts appear to have found sufficient evidence to lay the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for conducting a massive cyber-attack on all fifty states on and around November 03, 2020.  Most Americans agree that this amounts to an act of war and when combined with the Chi-Coms’ release of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, there is much for which, the communist scumbags must answer.  We have said this before and will say it again, but the Wuhan Virus allowed them to kill two birds with one stone: first, it helped them get rid of Donald Trump via colluding with the Democrats, Trump-hating RINOs, and Dominion Voting Systems and second, it helped them crush the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.  For this, they must pay.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I– Regime leader Joe Biden claims ‘it’s up to Afghanistan to defend its own country as the Taliban overrun six provincial capitals.  Then, later in the day, the drooling moron says through his mouthpiece that ‘it’s not a foregone conclusion the Taliban is going to run the Middle Eastern country.’
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– We learned today that the National Security Administration’s inspector general is looking into allegations made by Fox News host Tucker Carlson that the NSA was ‘spying on me.’  We bet they will produce nothing and yet, the surveillance will continue.
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News I– Today is Day No. 1 for Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame to hold his cyber symposium and what an opening day it was.  IF you think Joe Biden truly won the 2020 Presidential Election, well, watch the symposium and let us know what you think AFTER viewing it.  We think Joe Biden is walking on thin ice which is why the Democrats are going bat crap crazy.
  83. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News II– Prominent Pro-Life group Susan B. Anthony List made its first political endorsement for the 2022 Mid-Term Elections by endorsing Governor Henry McMaster, R-SC.  Elsewhere, the Texas Supreme Court has upheld the arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats issued by Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX.  In other news, Eli Bremer, R-CO, is throwing his hat into the ring for a U.S. Senate seat in 2022.  Next, the Wyoming GOP has censured wayward Rep. Liz Cheney yet again.  Finally, Governor Tony Evers, DS-WI, has vetoed several election integrities bills.
  84. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News III– New York politicians are still angry at soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and have said they may well impeach the man so he cannot run for any statewide election ever again.  Interestingly enough, when queried by reporters about Governor Cuomo’s sexual harassment woes, Joe Biden said of his close friend and confidant that ‘Governor Cuomo sets the gold standard for Democrats.’[xviii]  Whoa, Joe.  In other political news, the Atlantic magazine reports that senile U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi will ‘most likely step down shortly after the conclusion of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.’  Sure.  Of course, she will.
  85. 2021 Tuesday R: U.S. Senate News I– Early today, the Senate planned to hold the final vote on the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Later in the day- with the help of 19 Republican scumbags- the Democrats ramrod this shyster bill through.  Once they rammed this bogus piece of dog feces through Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, trotted out the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill as the next chink in the Biden regime’s chain of collapsing the United States Cloward and Piven-style.  Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a brave patriot immediately offered fifteen amendments to this horrendous bill.  Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, told Newsmax that the Dems’ ‘infrastructure bill is going to add mountains of debt atop America’s taxpayers.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday S: Business News– Small business optimism that was riding high in July has plummeted in the first 10 days of August due to vast labor shortages.
  87. 2021 Tuesday T: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former U.S. Department of Agriculture official Richard Homan received a sentence of 180 days home confinement for his part in a bribery scandal.
  88. 2021 Tuesday U: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump expressed concern that the Biden regime’s U.S. Department of Justice will bury the Durham report should it become available for release.
  89. 2021 Tuesday V: New York State News– It appears that the headhunters have succeeded.  A morose, near-tears Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov announced that effective in 14 days, he will be vacating the office of governor of the Empire State.
  90. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Military News– The United States and twenty allied nations kick off the 2021 Southeast Asian Cooperation and Training, aka SEACAT, joint military exercises.
  91. 2021 Tuesday X: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1684 what with a $208 million jackpot on the line: 29, 45, 50, 59, 62, and Mega 12.  Out of 89,761 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,638 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday Y: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Oregon University volleyball coaches said today that they have the right to discipline their players over their political views.  Welcome BIG BROTHER.
  93. 2021 Tuesday Z: The Wrap-Up– It is better late than never, folks.  Last night, our computer systems were under continuous attack, either from the Chi-Coms or from our own government.  A miniscule blogging site such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM one would think would be small fish for BIG BROTHER apparatchiks going after the bigger guys but we guess NO ONE is too small for persecution and punishment.  Well, we say, “F**K them, we will continue fighting back because the American people are a free people, and we will never surrender to oppressive left-wing trash.  It is what it is, folks.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  94. 2022 Wednesday: There are so many other things of which to speak but what happened at Mar-a-Lago takes the cake.  The American people are clearly unhappy over the heavy-handedness exercised by the Justice Department and its Joestapo.  Imagine, the Joestapo arriving at your home, searching through everything, carting things away for inspection later?  All I can surmise is that the Biden regime wants to plant evidence on Donald Trump.  What will they ‘find,’ Ashley Biden’s diary, the one in which, she laments the gloomy fact that daddy, Joe, used to shower with her when she was a prepubescent girl?  We can put nothing past these people.  What I do know is this: people are angry, not just Republicans but Democrats, too.  Going down this path is un-American, one our nation can ill-afford yet the Biden regime seems to want to go down it.  I will say this: for every one of us they strike down, 10 more will spring up in their place which is why EVERYONE must rush out and begin buying firearms, ammo, and everything else they can because gun and ammo confiscation is coming soon.  Not going to be like Australia, New Zealand, or anywhere else for that matter, I can assure you.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht. 
  95. 2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus.  Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated.  We knew something was wrong with these vaccines.  It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House: BINGO!  I also fear that the millions of military-aged males deposited around the country will take to the streets just in time to keep people sequestered in their homes out of fear.  These people could very well become the Joestapo’s new Brown Shirts division, one with which to instill terror into the American people.  You heard it here first- we can put nothing past these people anymore.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

IF one lives long enough, musical moments from the past finally are released in the way in which, they should have been.  Thus, we have “The Smile Sessions” by the Beach Boys, released on Halloween, 2011.  Many believe “Smile”- had it been released back in 1967 to counter the Beatles’ epic “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” the Rolling Stones’ “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request,” the Small Faces’ “Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake,” the Kinks’ “Something Else” and “Face to Face,” as well as other epic psychedelic masterpieces, it would have been right there with them, most likely at the top.  The other Beach Boys- could not get behind Brian’s masterpiece, the one he created with lyricist Van Dyke Parks, and thus, it was chopped up, neutered, and made blasé which was a loss for the world.  Now, however, we have it the way in which it should have been released along with loads of added material which puts the listener smack dab in the midst of the recording process.  This is one for the ages, one we hope everyone will rush out, give a listen, and then add it to your ever-burgeoning collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music- you can thank us later.

[i] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig, Mick Abrahams, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Wild Turkey, and Paris on Monday, May 24, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  The presentation concluded on Sunday, October 03, 2021.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of this legend, but you can expect we will at some point within the next 20 years.

[iv] Moral of the story for the Brits- remember: Black Lives Matter, you cannot be gunning them down.  At least the United States is not the only nation contending with civil unrest in the streets.

[v] Commercials to this day continue encouraging citizens to come forth and join in class-action lawsuits against Monsanto, which is fine but whatever happened to personal responsibility?  When using f**king poisons, use protective gear!

[xviii] The ersatz president had more to say of his good friend, Governor Cuomo: “He’s done a hell of a job” and it’s “so sad to see him go.”  One groper to another.  In other Cuomo-related news, politicians such as former Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey and Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ 2nd congressional district, are demanding that investigations into the crumbling governor and unnecessary nursing home deaths for which, he bears SOLE RESPONSIBILITY continue.

215. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 03, 2022

2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia. Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?

[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Maryland: $3.098.  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- Aruba: $4.852 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,599,366,342,829 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xviii]  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 Kuwait, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Sweden with $47 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 133 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the flaming fiasco down along the U.S.-Mexico border and her 39th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says that Joe Biden “MUST fire” “Kooky Kamala” because she has no clue as to what the f**k she is doing.  Elsewhere, Grant Stinchfield reported on Newsmax this evening that the mayor of McAllen, Texas, Javier Villalobos, has declared a disaster as they are being overrun by thousands of illegal aliens with no end in sight.
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Germany has set a trial date for a 100-year-old Nazi death camp guard.   Next, the Chi-Coms are lashing out angrily at the Republican Party following the release of their report on the origins and spread of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Oh, boohoo, Chi-Coms, shut the hell up.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their attack on the GOP, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th CD, says the Chi-Coms’ wailing and sniveling over the recent report is further proof of their duplicity in the crime of the century- unleashing the Chi-Vi on the world.  Rep. McCaul said it is ‘the worst cover-up in human history.’  No wonder the Beijing bullies are upset.  Speaking of the communists, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, has once again called for moving the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics out of the authoritarian country and somewhere else to a more deserving country.   Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says that the United States ‘must cut off communist China completely.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Saudi foreign ministry has suggested that it won’t take part in the Abraham Accords.  Well, screw them.  Next, South Korea reports that the North Koreans want sanctions eased for them to return to direct talks with the United States.  Moving on, the Lebanese president is calling for an investigation into the Beirut blast that leveled much of the city a year ago tomorrow.  At least 204 people lost their lives while another 6,500 suffering injuries of varying degrees.  Tens of thousands more were made homeless in the space of a second.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke with the Afghan president to see about ‘hastening along the peace negotiations with the Taliban.’  Mr. Secretary, the Taliban is overrunning the country, sir, how about helping them with air support?
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The United States is donating another 110 million doses of the Chi-Com Virus vaccine abroad.  Hopefully, it’s the Johnson & Johnson crap.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Florida’s schools have quickly rescinded their mask mandates for the upcoming school year after ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis threatened their funding.  NO MASKS for kids!  In fact, Governor Pete Ricketts, R-NE, says that ‘mask mandates and lockdowns are counterproductive.’     
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Elsewhere, scientific journal writer Peter Hotez says that ‘questioning Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci should be labeled a “HATE CRIME.”  Interesting note: Professor Hotez has received funding from Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.’  Man, the fruit does not fall far from the pestilent stink-tree.
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former President Barack Hussein Obama ripped into the ‘Republican fog’ surrounding voting rights in this country.  President Donald J. Trump was highlighting a new forensic report that shows that Joe Biden received more than 8 million fraudulent votes in last year’s presidential election.
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden News I– Enfeebled Joe Biden believes that putting pressure on U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer to retire would harm the nation’s highest court and would politicize it.  Of course, the Democratic-Socialists reacted to this statement in the same way that Dracula would to a Crucifix and a vial of Holy Water. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new report regarding the Biden regime says that federal agencies do extraordinarily little to protect the data of U.S. citizens from being hacked by foreign adversaries. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– The Democrats are at war with one another and the division within their hardcore-left-of-center party continues to grow.  Democrats are screeching and wailing over the end of the evictions moratorium which leads the rest of us to ask a scathing question of the liberal losers: YOU were giving people an extra 300 smackers on top of their unemployment so where the f**k did it go?  They weren’t paying their rent with the extra $1,200 per month.  This is crazy, landlords have bills, too, as do the people they hire to do the electrical work, the plumbing work, the reclamation work should the tenants to whom they have given housing trashed it.  Many people invest in rental properties to pay the bills and now, the Democrats are destroying that segment of the American economy along with numerous others.  Shame on them.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News II– Republican National Committee Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that for Donald J. Trump to win in 2024, Republicans must win in 2022.  Next, many people now believe that the reason as to WHY New York AG Leticia James came out and trashed her boss, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov by listing his crimes as disgraced FBI Director James “Criminal” Comey did Hillary Rodham Clinton back in 2016 is that she wants to cripple him so she can run for his job and possibly win in 2022.  Now, that’s devious.  Still, the Albany County D.A. is now investigating Governor Cuomo so maybe someone else is going to do the dirty work for A.G. James.
  78. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney says that the Department of Justice ordering the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to the cretins in the U.S. Congress is occurring sans any evidence of wrongdoing.   Next, that crackpot scarecrow loser in the U.S. Senate- Elizabeth Warren, DS-MA,- says that ‘GOP voting laws are somehow connected to abortion.’  Say the flip what?  This woman is an angry loser.  Elsewhere, Governor J.B. Pritzker, DS-IL, says he is going to ‘enforce background checks on private gun sales.’  You should have been doing that already.  Moving on, the U.S. Senate voted to award ‘gold medals’ to the Capitol Hill cops who were at the Capitol on January 06, 2021.  What a load of crap.
  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News IV– Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax lambasted the 18 Republicans who eagerly signed onto the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Again, here they are: Roy Blunt, R-MO; Richard Burr, R-NC; Shelley Moore Capito, R-WV; Bill Cassidy, R-LA; Mike Crapo; R-ID, James Risch, R-ID; Thom Tillis; R-NC; Todd Young, R-IN; Mike Rounds, R-SD; John Hoeven, R-ND, Kevin Cramer, R-ND; Lisa Murkowski, R-AK; Rob Portman, R-OH; Mitt Romney, R-UT; Susan Collins, R-ME; Chuck Grassley, R-IA; Lindsey Graham, R-SC; and “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY.  Here is some more of the crap contained within the ‘infrastructure bill’- $16.3 billion for ‘renewable energy’ program; $250 million for invasive plant elimination (how about for invasive human beings’ elimination, i.e., ILLEGAL ALIENS?), and $10 million per year for Motor Vehicle per-mile user fee program.  So now, the American people will be taxed per mile by local, state, and federal government?  There will be a new industry just as there is now with the manufacturing of vaccination ID cards, one in which, odometers will be reset and reset. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News V– Tucker Carlson reported tonight from Budapest, Hungary, that the New York Times- the so-called ‘paper of record’- received millions of dollars from communist China to shill for the thugs in Beijing.  Islands that belong to Japan, they claimed belonged to the Chi-Coms as well as did everything to trash anyone who said that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was ‘xenophobic,’ a ‘racist,’ and/or a ‘bigot.’  Mr. Carlson said that the New York Times was not the only ‘news outlet’ to take Chi-Com yuan and then lie their asses off about anything their Beijing masters ordered them to do.  Wow.  Hence, ‘Chi-Coms good, Wuhan lab ‘innocent,’ and Donald J. Trump a ‘big, fat, evil racist.’  What a load of crap.
  81. 2021 Tuesday S: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee finally is seeking to repeal the 2002 use of military force in Iraq powers they gave to President George W. Bush.  Interested observers ask what took you so long to do this?  You should never have bestowed those powers on President Bush.  The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes, however, that the Deep State forced Bush’s hand into invading Iraq so everyone could rake in lots of bucks while then using the exact same war powers act to trash Bush #43.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: Business News– In various parts of the United States, McDonalds Restaurants will require both employees and customers to mask up or to go across the street to Burger King.   Restaurants in New York City are going to require that ALL customers- with the blessings of outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio- to show proof of vaccination, i.e., show their papers, otherwise, they cannot enter, sit down, and eat.  It would appear that the government is going to have private businesses do their dirty work just as they require employers to deduct payroll taxes from their workers’ salaries and then hand them over to government apparatchiks.  Well, there will always be restaurants that welcome all diners so it is important that we share names and locations in the same ways that hoboes of old shared whose house would provide one a meal and which house would not.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Special Election News– Tonight in the GOP primary race in Ohio’s 15th CD in a race to fill the vacant seat of former Rep. Steve Stivers, Donald J. Trump-backed candidate Mike Carey won big time.  Meanwhile, on the Democratic side of the aisle, state Rep. Allison Russo was projected to win the Democratic nomination.  The general election will be this November.  And they say Trump-backed candidates can’t win.  You win some, you lose some and Barack Hussein Obama has lost almost every endorsement he ever made- “Loser” with a capital “L.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– New York Attorney General Leticia James released the results of the probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and none of it looked good.  She would not commit to prosecuting the immoral chief executive and left it for others to do.  New York state Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat, said today “NO one is above the law.”  Later in the day, Joe Biden called for the Empire State governor to ‘step down’ for his reprobate activities as did House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.   Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st CD, called for the ‘immediate arrest’ of the immoral governor on grounds of criminal sexual harassment.  Good.  Lock him up.
  85. 2021 Tuesday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– However, Joe Biden is so out of it that he did not realize that as he was calling on his fellow Democratic-Socialist to step down, he opened the door for others to demand Mr. Biden step down due to his LONG HISTORY of groping, grabbing, smooching, rubbing, and saying all sorts of suggestive and disturbing things.  What is clear, too, is that AG James lacks the balls to pursue her boss, Governor “Killer” Cuomo.   Elsewhere, Missouri Governor Mike Parson has officially pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey for their ‘gun crimes convictions’ of last year.  Excellent.
  86. 2021 Tuesday X: Mass Shootings News– Two employees were wounded in a warehouse shooting in Tennessee.  Cops responding on scene shot the shooter.  Elsewhere, after some shots were fired outside the Pentagon, the entire facility went on lockdown.  It seems the bravest of the brave had to cower in fear inside the walls of America’s defense epicenter.   Apparently, a law enforcement officer may have lost his life in the incident.  Jihad?  White Supremacism?  Black Lives Matter?  Angry lover?  We don’t know.
  87. 2021 Tuesday Y: Big Tech News– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, slams YouTube for its censorship of free speech and urges users to find alternative sites to share their views.
  88. 2021 Tuesday Z: California State News– Backers of Recall Governor Gavin Newsom are seeking to block language on the upcoming recall ballot that the effort to cleanse California of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is a ‘power grab by the GOP.  Governor Newsom, people from across the political spectrum are banding together to get YOU out of office just as they did with Governor Gray Davis, another corrupt Democrat governor.
  89. 2021 Tuesday AA: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1682 what with a $179 million jackpot on the line: 01, 09, 17, 27, 34, and Mega 24.  Out of 73,454 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,091,799.  The winning ticket was sold at the Cortesia Market in Pacoima, CA 91331.
  90. 2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.  Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia.  Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?  Anything is indeed possible in this world and some such as my family and me see signs of the End Times on the horizon.  One cannot make this stuff up.  No, all one need do is to read the Holy Bible.  Still, after all the suffering, the death, and the destruction, we will win.  That is the promise of GOD.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilte” De Soto.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys released their next live album, “Songs from Here and Back,” a special release album that came out on May 15, 2006, one that came out from Hallmark for two months back in the day.  This is rather a hodgepodge of tunes, most of the live ones from 1989- two from back in 1974- as well as three solo studio tunes, one from Brian Wilson, one from Mike Love, and one from Alan Jardine.  You get the lineup back in 1989- Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, and Alan Jardine- plus the longtime Beach Boys backup band, the one that provides the background on the road.  The two from 1974 feature Dennis Wilson and Ricky Fataar in the mix while the solo studio recordings feature a variety of accompanying musicians.  IF you can find this one, it’s a worthy addition to one’s collection and if you can’t, well, it is what it is.  Enjoy.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the other bands with which York played like the Bees, the Sir Douglas Quintet, the Museums, CRY, Gene Clark’s solo band, and Carla Olson.

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

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

[iv] When we begin promoting American bands again, we will be sure to include the Stray Cats as well as the group’s individual members.  We hope you will remain alert for the day we do.

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

[vi] We began promoting the music of Love, the famed Los Angeles, California, rock band on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  Please seek out the music of this awesome band.  This group was among the best of the 1960s.

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

210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.

  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.

  58. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

[xi]

[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $3.114.  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- Philippines: $4.590 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,579,970,824,046 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  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 Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

[i] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

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

[v] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

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

[vii] 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.

  22. 1941 Tuesday: Architects presented the plans for the Pentagon to the House Subcommittee of Appropriations.  On the Eastern Front, Axis forces continue steamrolling across the Soviet Union.  The problems the Axis troops are facing is that as they head east, Russia opens up like a great funnel which dilutes the strength of the Axis forces.  That’s bad enough but stories of the atrocities the Nazis are committing behind the lines against civilians- notably communist party members and Jews- is stiffening the backbones of the Red Army soldiers.  Even without help in sight, they trade their lives to buy time for their comrades farther east to prepare defenses.   Still, Operation Barbarossa rolls forward.

  25. 1944 Saturday: The Soviet military authorities set up the Polish National Liberation Committee. In essence, they are telling the Free Polish government broadcasting orders to the Polish people from London, ‘you aren’t in charge here.’  Soviet forces capture the strategic city of Chelmno and redouble their efforts at encircling Lublin, Poland.  Meanwhile, in London, Rick Davies, future keyboardist, and vocalist with the rock group, Supertramp[i], is born in Swindon, England.
  26. 1945 Sunday: As Allied bombers continue blasting Japan, the Japanese government still is not ready to throw in the towel.  Tokyo still thinks it can negotiate a peace and tells the Allies; we are ‘open to peace feelers but not to outright surrender.’  The Imperial Japanese are determined to defend their home islands to the bitter end no matter the cost.
  27. 1945 Sunday A: The 52nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau Jr. left office on this date.  A Democrat, Secretary Morgenthau served under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt from January 01, 1934, until today.

  35. 1965 Thursday: BBC-TV in England debuted “Till Death Us Do Part” on this date.

  47. 1999 Thursday: In Rome, N.Y., the 30th anniversary music festival celebrating the original Woodstock Music and Arts Festival of 1969 begins.  None of the bands there could ever approximate the original performers and add to that the fact the concert temperatures were over 100 degrees plus, people became violent and battled with one another bringing the mess to an end on the 25th.  Some said the fiasco was ‘the day the music died,’ a comment attributed to San Francisco Examiner journalist Jane Ganahi.  Yes, we think it did die there what with a mishmash of various groups.   The fact that people fought with each other, there were sexual assaults, rapes, arson, and looting says that this event was NOT about ‘peace and love.’  Nope.  Can’t rekindle the magic.

  50. 2004 Thursday: The September 11 commission’s final report hit the news on this date.  The 575-page report concluded that hijackers exploited “deep institutional failings within our government.”  The commission released it to the White House a day before.  This report has led many 9-11 Truthers to blame George W. Bush for allowing the jihadist scum to attack the United States so the President could launch a war with Iraq.  This is a bunch of felonious bull crap as EVERYONE—we repeat—EVERYONE believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
  51. 2005 Friday: A labor agreement ended an NHL lockout that canceled the previous hockey season. 
  52. 2008 Tuesday: Tropical Storm Dolly spun into a hurricane as it headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border.  Meanwhile, European Union ministers agreed to toughen sanctions against murderous thug-dictator President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to pressure him to share power with the opposition.  Finally, actress Estelle Getty died in Los Angeles, California, at age 84.

  55. 2012 Sunday:  India elects Pranab Mukherjee as its new President.
  56. 2013 Monday: Scientific studies reveal that dolphins have unique names for one another in much the same way as do human beings.  Elsewhere, frenzied crowds of Roman Catholics in Rio de Janeiro mobbed the car carrying Pope Francis as he returned to his home continent for the first time as pontiff, embarking on a seven-day visit.  Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, gave birth to a son, Prince George, who became third in line to the British throne after Prince Charles and Prince William.

  59. 2016 Friday: In Munich, Germany, a shooter murders 9 people at the Olympia shopping mall and then turns the gun on himself.   Meanwhile, Democratic Party 2016 Presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton announces Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her vice-presidential nominee and running mate.
  60. 2017 Saturday: The United States Navy and President Donald J. Trump christened the newest aircraft carrier to the fleet, the USS Gerald R. Ford, on this date.    Meanwhile, in San Antonio, Texas, one of the worst incidents of tragedy in human trafficking occurs as 10 illegal aliens die in the back of an overheated semi-truck trailer.   
  61. 2018 Sunday: In response to a hateful speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet in which, he warns the s-hole nation of “CONSEQUENCES.”  The Iranians would be wise to listen to the 45th president as he is not- we repeat NOT- the 44th president who was Pro-Iranian to the bone.   Meanwhile, in anti-gun Toronto, Canada, a shooter kills 2 and wounds 13 before being shot dead by law enforcement.
  62. 2019 Monday: The latest Marvel Comics superhero film, “Avengers: Endgame,” surpasses “Avatar” as the world’s highest-grossing film pulling in $2.9 billion.  People love the comic book movies it says a lot about the public paying big bucks to watch this schlock.   Meanwhile, Pakistani President Imran Khan meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House on a state visit.   Elsewhere, in northwestern Syria at Maarat al-Numan, Russian warplanes in support of Syrian government forces kill at least 31 civilians.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump says that the ‘U.S. could win the war in Afghanistan in one week.’  “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.  If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.”  (Mr. President, this is why God gave the United States the neutron bomb- use them!).
  63. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. State Department orders the closure- by this Friday- of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China’s consulate in Houston, Texas.  The Chinese within the facility immediately start a bonfire with which to eliminate all sensitive documents but everyone knows the Houston consulate (and most of the others) are hotbeds for hostile spying on everything in the area: U.S. air force and other military bases, the U.S. space program, and bio research, especially into the Chinese-manufactured Bat Flu pandemic sweeping the planet.  Meanwhile reports inform the world that everyday PRC warplanes are buzzing Taiwan, a free nation the communists are determined to reclaim.  STAND STRONG TAIWAN!  We advocate for a return of the Two-China policy by which, Taiwan becomes a free and independent nation as they were before the United Nations threw them under the bus in favor of the PRC- Chi-Com money bought them Taiwan’s seat in the U.N. and on the U.N. Security Council.      
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: President Donald J. Trump- with Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, and numerous others- announces to the nation Operation Legend, a partnership between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to reclaim the streets from violent left-wing (and we believe communist China-funded) mobs that are murdering innocent civilians and harming countless others in numerous cities around the country.   These are standard, anti-crime-fighting activities the federal government has been carrying out for decades and all left-wing mayors and governors have been put on notice.
  65. 2020 Wednesday B: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,008,046 confirmed cases, UP by 233,159 cases, 617,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,303 deaths, and 8,511,330 confirmed recoveries, UP by 171,288 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,019,492 confirmed cases, UP by 123,689 new cases, 145,053 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,021 new deaths, and 1,185,757 confirmed recoveries, UP by 55,552 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).   
  66. 2020 Wednesday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 413,576 confirmed cases, 7,883 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,418 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,084 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 48,575 confirmed cases, 1,465 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Florida: 379,619 confirmed number of cases, 5,459 confirmed number of deaths, and like Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Ron DeSantis?  Acting like a Blue State governor?    
  67. 2020 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,005.84, UP 165.44 points (0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,706.13, UP 25.76 points (0.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,276.02, UP 18.72 points (0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,868.80 per troy oz., +3.70 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $23.20 per troy ounce, +0.061 (+0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $964.00 per troy oz, +6.60 (0.69%) while the price of COPPER is $2.92 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.15%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.19%).
  68. 2021 Thursday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 193,366,039 confirmed cases, +559,484, 4,150,648 confirmed deaths, +8,757 and 175,704,146 confirmed recoveries, +380,427.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,218,594 confirmed cases, UP 72,118 from yesterday’s reporting, 626,172 confirmed deaths, UP 364, [viii] and 29,478,173 confirmed recoveries, UP 19,770.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]  
  69. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 307,730 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 96,348 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  70. 2021 Thursday 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: 3,890,609 confirmed cases, 64,184 confirmed deaths, and 2,087,173 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,497,828 confirmed cases, 38,566 confirmed deaths, and 2,273,461 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 39,892 confirmed cases, 527 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 467,324 confirmed cases, 6,116 confirmed deaths, and 229,145 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Ohio: they have 1,120,120 confirmed cases, 20,449 confirmed deaths, and 1,089,482 confirmed recoveries. [x]    
  71. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 856,986 confirmed cases, 6,457 confirmed deaths, and 840,712 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Hong Kong, 156th FREE STATE on the list: 11,972 cases of the virus, 212 confirmed deaths and 11,690 confirmed recoveries. [xi]     
  72. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,823.35, UP 25.35 points (+0.073%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,684.60, UP 52.64 points (+0.36%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,367.48, UP 8.79 points (+0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.70 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.20 per troy oz., -1.30 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $25.41 per troy ounce, +0.03 (+0.11%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,093.00 per troy oz, +2.40 (+0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $4.36 per pound, +0.02 (+0.48%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,723.12 per troy oz, +5.23 (+0.19%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $18,700.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $720,000.00 per troy oz., -5,000.00 (-0.69%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,466.00 per troy oz., +16.00 (+0.65%). [xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000031.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.     In Croatia Kuna, one greenback equals 6.39 and in Cuban Peso, a buck equals 24.00 and in Czech Koruna, one dollar equals 21.77 of theirs. [xv]        
  73. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.320 per gallon, $2.977 in Florida, $4.091 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Connecticut: $3.154.  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- Communist China: $4.477 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,553,133,360,269 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  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 Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  74. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 121 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the CALAMITY occurring on the U.S.-Mexico border and to have done NOTHING about the crisis.  It’s also her 27th day since she has been to the border on her one and only trip with no mention as to when she might return to conduct a serious visit.  We await word of that momentous day if it should come because we would love to accompany “Willie Brown’s mattress.” 
  75. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the latest figures on the southern border mess as they always do.  First, here is the cost this day of carrying for multitudes of illegal aliens in U.S. custody: $539,396,352.  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $221,909,319,680.  Moving on, here is the estimated number for illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 2,274,392.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals in the U.S. as we speak: 36,274,392.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the inception of this blog back in 2009 that the numbers back then were around 35-50 million illegals whereas now, we believe a much more honest number is between 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Folks, we need to round them up, imprison them, and then deport them in a nonstop reverse caravan of outgoing flights, on freighters, on freight trains, via buses, and even on foot.  The country cannot handle these people, nor do we want them running amok in our country.  DEFEND THE COUNTRY NOW. [xix]
  76. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said that the U.S., South Korea, and Japan will counter any malevolent activity the North Koreans might commit.  While this is awesome, there is no pushback against the Chi-Coms.  The Chi-Coms reject a plan by the World Health Organization to determine the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Democrats remain under fire from human rights groups because they won’t call out their communist overlords for human rights violations.
  77. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The ‘Mark of the Beast’ attitude continues what with a New Jersey hospital firing SIX employees who said ‘NO’ to getting one of the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Whatever happened to ‘my body, my choice?’  Obviously, it doesn’t count here.  Meanwhile, the White House is reviewing whether it’s going to impose mask mandates on the American people whether they want them or not.   Elsewhere, One America News reported today that the VAERS website says that COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S. jumped from 11.1 thousand to 12.3 thousand deaths since the start of the year.  This number is higher than the combined deaths for all other vaccines in the country since the federal government began counting such incidents.  And they wonder WHY millions of Americans are reluctant to get vaccinated.  Finally, the National Football League says that if outbreaks of COVID-19 hits unvaccinated players and staff on a team, that team will forfeit games.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Oklahoma state lawmaker Sean Roberts urges an election audit within his state and the fake news media goes berserk and begins attacking him from all sides.  Meanwhile, security analyst Seth Keshel says that President Donald J. Trump actually won Texas by 55-percent rather than the 43-percent certified by the state.  Hence why there are calls for an Arizona-style election audit in the Lone Star State.
  79. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden signed a bill with which to boost the Crime Victims Fund today.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s town hall in Ohio, Joe continues being a laughingstock as there was less than less than 100 people in the auditorium with at least half of them being MSNBC employees.  The applause sounded canned as it has in other Joe Biden ‘appearances’ so it’s clear that most Americans see the drooling old dimwit as the usurper that he is.  How embarrassing.  Joe also is causing other consternation among his handlers as well as for the voice in his earpiece as now he is defending the Senate filibuster when a couple of weeks ago, he was calling it a ‘relic of Jim Crow.’  Come on, Joe, shake the damned cobwebs off, dude.  Come on, man!
  80. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland is going to Chicago to help with efforts to stop out-of-control gun violence in the Windy City.  We wish him luck.  In other regime news, the CIA says that ‘100 agents and their families have become victims of the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome,’ what appears to be microwave or sonic attacks directed at buildings and their occupants or at individuals singled out for such attacks.  To our knowledge, no one has figured out what- exactly- is going on or how it’s being done.  We hope the government gets this under control and responds in kind- 100 times over.
  81. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, always sucking on that lemon, says she is going to forge ahead with her ‘January 06, 2021 Select Committee’ with just her best bud, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and maybe Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, as the ONLY ‘Republicans’ on the panel seeing as how House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, pulled the rest of his appointees following lemon-sucking Nancy booting two of his picks the day before.   Leader McCarthy called Pelosi’s ‘committee’ a ‘sham committee’ and says that the Republicans will create their own January 06, 2021 ‘select’ House committee and will seek the TRUTH.  “Mumbles” Pelosi says she doesn’t give a flying you-know-what.
  82. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Regarding “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘select committee,’ Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, says that the decrepit old House speaker is content to go it alone without any Republicans.  She claims it’s ‘deadly serious, that it’s about the Constitution, that it’s about finding the truth for the American people when everyone understands that this is the witch hunt of witch hunts and that past generations of patriotic American lawmakers from all parties are rolling around in their graves with this foul dingbat destroying the fabled U.S. House of Representatives.  Shame, Nancy, shame.
  83. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Former Detroit Police James Craig made it official late yesterday: he is running to boot the incompetent political hack Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of Michigan out into the street.  Where can we send you money, Chief Craig?   Elsewhere, Rep. Beth Van Duyne, R-TX 24th congressional district, says that the ‘Democrat challenging her can’t even show up to do her own job.’  Speaking of the fugitive Texas Democrats hiding in the nation’s capital as the slave chasers’ breath down their trail, incredibly unphotogenic loser Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and his fund-raising group have sent $600,000 to his colleagues so as to keep them living in the style to which, they have become accustomed.  Good for you, Beto, good for you.  Loser.   Finally, some Texas counties are refusing to comply with Governor Gregg Abbott’s order to detain illegal aliens that fall into law enforcement’s hands.
  84. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– A new Gallup- poll says that race relations in the United States are at their lowest ebb since 2001.  Go figure.  The Democratic Party uses race to drive wages between all Americans.  Next, the Pentagon is restoring five advisory boards after purging them of Trump loyalists.  What is this?  The frigging Soviet Union?  Son-of-a-bitch!  Moving on, Pro-Death Democrats are trying to engineer an end to the Hyde Amendment.  However, Republicans are pushing back as WHY should American taxpayer dollars be used to fund abortions, not just here in our godforsaken country but across the entire flipping planet?   Speaking of Pro-Death movement, Mississippi is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to toss out the landmark abortion ruling, Roe v. Wade.
  85. 2021 Thursday Q: Economic News– Things are not looking good for the Biden regime as the weekly jobs report does not look all that good.  Last week, a whopping 419,000 people filed for first-time jobless benefits as the U.S. economy continues to struggle. 
  86. 2021 Thursday R: Moron News I– Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser quickly removed a CUBA LIBRE mural all the while protecting a Black Lives Matter communist mural in her city.  Mayor “Bow-Wow” Bowser is our MORON OF THE DAY.  Thank you for showing us exactly who you are: a socialist hack.   In other Moron News, Bruce Springsteen and bestie Barack Hussein Obama are releasing a coauthored book in October.  Wow.  How many is it for Barack now?  Seven, eight, nine books about his favorite topic, himself?
  87. 2021 Thursday S: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– The ‘Great White Hope’ (to run against President Donald J. Trump in 2020- according to the Democrats) Michael Avenatti pled ‘NOT GUILTY’ to charges of wire fraud in California.   Elsewhere, the city of Minneapolis is weighing whether or not to get rid of its police department and go in a different direction such as having healthcare workers answer urgent calls from citizens suffering crime.  If the city council should approve this stupidity, it will go on the ballot in November and the leftists trashing the city will vote yay or nay.  This is crazy and none of us will ever visit Minneapolis-St. Paul ever again.
  88. 2021 Thursday T: Big Tech News– The GOP is fighting to push BIG TECH to subsidize broadband across the entire country.  Meanwhile, in a lawsuit filed against Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, President Donald J. Trump said Section 230 is unconstitutional in that it allows these scumbags to run amok censoring whomever they like as though they have greater power than do constitutional governments.  We are moving to Gettr and to other much fairer social media sites which leads us to the next tidbit of news: Twitter is doing better than expected with ad revenues; however, more and more Americans are leaving them to hopefully wither and die on the vine.
  89. 2021 Thursday U: California State News– Pacific Gas & Electric announced it’s going to bury 10,000 miles of power lines underground so as to prohibit wildfires from starting or from getting out of control.  This should have been done long ago.  Meanwhile, Larry Elder has qualified to be on the ballot in September when the citizens of the Golden State boot Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom out on his butt.  Mr. Elder has become the frontrunner.   Most of the chef-authors here in the Golden State like Mr. Elder and believe he will make a phenomenal governor although there will be horrendous gridlock until we can get more Republicans into the state Assembly and Senate in November 2022.  One thing is for certain: with “Nazi” Newsom gone, things will infinitely improve as Mr. Elder is no Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Thank God.
  90. 2022 Friday:  Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with each of us.  We all know the ‘truth is out there’ and when it comes to ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden, the truth swirls around us like a Chi-Com shit storm.  They said President Trump was in the pay of Russian thug Vladimir Putin when in fact, it’s Joe Biden and his entire corrupt family that is in the pay of not only the Russians but the Chi-Coms and the Mexican cartels.  IF anyone is stupid enough to believe that the Biden crime family is not receiving a cut on every illegal alien crossing the border into the U.S., you must be insane.  What other reason that that (1) the Dems believe they are going to hold power forever because of the illegals and (2) the Biden Family is making a killing off each one who crosses the border.  This is insidious and it must stop and in November, we will stop it.  Let me know what you think- Chef E.C. McCardle.

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 126

189. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 08, 2022:

Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, U.S. Attorney General James P. McGranery, the Allman Brothers Band featuring Jai “Jaimoe” Johanny Johnson, the Electric Light Orchestra featuring Colin Walker, the Soft Machine featuring Roy Babbington, and Chef Wolfgang Puck:

  1. 951 Thursday: The city of Paris is founded.
  2. 1099 Saturday: During the First Crusade, Christian soldiers marched around the occupied city of Jerusalem before launching their attack.  Behind the walls, the Mohammedans holding the walls laughed and jeered at them.  Little did they know that when the Crusaders finally stormed the city, many of the jihadists would be put to the sword.
  3. 1153 Wednesday: The reign of the 167th Roman Catholic Pope Eugene III comes to an end on this date.  Eugene first picked up Holy Cross and pontifical duties on February 15, 1145 and guided his global flock until today.

  5. 1608 Tuesday: Samuel de Champlain established the first French settlement around Quebec.

[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Virginia: $2.944.  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- Malawi: $4.197 per U.S. Gallon.

  81. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Now here’s a good one: Joe Biden is repurposing $860 million of COVID-19 relief to care for his invasion of illegal alien brats.  You know, I remember when President Donald J. Trump repurposed some defense funds to build the wall along the border and members of my party went bat crap crazy. [xvi]. Elsewhere, on top of what Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, is sending to Texas to help quell the illegal alien invasion, she is sending another 125 National Guard troops to spend three months there.  Thank you, Governor Noem, thank you.
  82. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In Haiti, after the assassination of the president, law enforcement engaged in running battles with various thugs.  Eventually, they began rounding some of them up including a Haitian American.  Things will NOT end well for him.  Elsewhere, former South African President Jacob Zuma turned himself into South African law enforcement authorities to answer for corruption charges.  Next, South Korea says that North Korean murdering thug dictator Kim Jong Un has lost 44-pounds.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new study conducted in the United Kingdom says that very few children must shelter in fear from the ‘VID.   Meanwhile, California’s shame Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra says the government has ‘every right to know the vaccination status of the American people because the government spent loads of money developing the vaccines.’  We say to Secretary Becerra: “Go screw yourself, idiot.  Let’s see you break HIPPA laws.”  Add to that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton saying that the ‘door-to-door thing’ about going to neighborhoods house by house to check on vaccine status is NOT going to work.  Heck, we could have told you that.  Of other interest- Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci now says to people refusing to get the experimental vaccine, ‘Get over it.’  How about we get ‘over you?’
  84. 2021 Thursday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Pfizer is seeking FDA approval for a third vaccine injection.  Now, this is getting crazy.  Tucker Carlson reported this evening that people involved in vaccine trials said that problems really increased after the third injection causing people to fall out of the program.  This is getting scary.
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces the launch of a $25 million bid to corrupt U.S. elections.  Of course, she claims the money is to go to supporting democracy, but we all know that that is a load of festering crap.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden spoke today on the embarrassing pullout from Afghanistan.  It was difficult to decipher what the drooling moron was saying.  What we thought he said was that the withdrawal will be complete by August 31 of this year.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are rushing in to fill the vacuum.  Rep. Fred Keller, R-Pa 12th CD, says that the ‘withdrawal from Afghanistan should come from a position of strength,’ not this cowardly exit.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– Most voters say that schools should stick to teaching ‘traditional values’ and not this ‘Criminal uh, Critical Race Theory’ crap they are pushing.  Amen.  Meanwhile, Senator Tommy Tuberville says that ‘funding should be stripped from schools teaching CRT.’  Amen to this, too.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– After their initial ruling caused a backlash among the American people, the Internal Revenue Service decided that they would approve tax-exempt status for the nonprofit group, “Christians Engaged.”  Originally, the IRS announced it would not approve tax exempt status for Christian groups as they are typically ‘pro-Trump.’  Meanwhile, the Biden regime blasts Israel for destroying yet another home of a Palestinian terrorist.  Oh, well.  Next, the regime’s military wing in the Pentagon has a new report that suggests the possibility of NUCLEAR WAR is going way up.  Funny how we weren’t worried about anyone dropping nukes while Donald J. Trump was residing in the White House. [xvii]
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch raised an important question today on Newsmax regarding January 06, 2021: did U.S. banks hand over data on their customers who were in or around the U.S. Capitol on the day of the FALSE FLAG OPERATION carried out by the Democrats to the FBI?  We believe he is onto something that should cause customers of these banks to close their accounts and go elsewhere much more friendly to them.  Elsewhere, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has confiscated record amounts of illegal pot grows run by Mexican drug cartels within the county.  Meanwhile, an FBI task force member was ambushed, shot, and killed outside a federal building in Indiana.  Looks like the chickens are coming home to roost.  Next, prisoners sent home by the CARES Act are quivering in fear about the pandemic ending and them having to return to prison to finish their sentences.  Finally, Stormy Daniels’ pimp, uh, attorney, Michael Avenatti, received a prison sentence of 30 months for trying to extort Nike.
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Mass Shootings News– The uncle of the one-month-old tot shot in the head in Chicago over the past week says that it ‘feels like no one cares.’   In other firearm-related news, Tucson, Arizona, says it ‘won’t obey the Second Amendment sanctuary law passed by the state government.  Go in there and clean out that nest of snakes.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: Big Tech News– Dozens of states are suing Google over its monopolistic control of commerce at its site.  We hope to see CEO Sundar Pichai stripped of his citizenship and deported back to Somalia or wherever the hell his bastard birth was.   Next, attorney Brooke Rollins says that President Donald J. Trump is ‘David’ taking on BIG TECH’S ‘Goliath.’  Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th CD said that he’s ‘glad’ that President Donald J. Trump is taking on BIG TECH and their leftist allies.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Florida State News– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, has raised $4 million in campaign contributions during the 2nd quarter.  His opponent, Rep. Val Demings, DS-FL 10th CD, thinks she is going to topple Senator Rubio.  We don’t think so, especially after her dismal performance as one of the most BORING impeachment prosecutors in the second impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.
  93. 2021 Thursday S: Michigan State News– Former Detroit Police Chief James Craig- expected to run against Michigan’s authoritarian Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer in 2022 blasted the governor, her fake news allies, and celebrities backing her up.  We think Chief Craig is a lock on the governor’s mansion.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: Missouri State News– Governor Mike Parson, R-MO, signed a COVID-19 liability law into being effective August 31, 2021, that will protect all business owners from liability brought by customers unless it can be proven they willfully inflicted the Chi-Vi on their customers.
  95. 2021 Thursday U: Economic News– Weekly jobless claims came in at 373,000, higher than the anticipated 350,000 economists expected.  Joe Biden knows nothing about what to do about the economy.  Next, Tesla automotive sales in Germany grew by a record 431-percent.  Elsewhere, consumer borrowing jumped by a record amount for the American people in May of this year.
  96. 2021 Thursday V: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is set to headline the upcoming CPAC event in Dallas, Texas, from July 09-11, 2021.  Everyone is excited because they understand that whatever the scurrilous, scumbag Democrats (and their RINO stooges) throw at him, he comes out smelling like a rose.
  97. 2021 Thursday W: Sports News– The Phoenix Suns beat the Milwaukee Bucks 118 to 108 to take a two-game lead in the 2021 NBA Finals.  Next game is Sunday night in Milwaukee.
  98. 2022 Friday: Stick around to uncover the truth along with all of us…what could be happening today?  One thing we will say- this year’s news will most likely appear next year.  Don’t want the Joestapo to come looking for us anytime soon, sons-of-bitches.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record companies being what they are, are always seeking new and/or novel ways with which to repackage, promote, and sell an aging group’s music.  Thus, we have the new ‘studio’ album, “Stars and Stripes Volume One,” released on August 19, 1996.  Folks, this album contains re-recordings of a dozen of the band’s older songs with guests adding vocals.  We have the core group of Alan Jardine, Brian and Carl Wilson (the latter of whom would soon die from cancer), Mike Love, and Bruce Johnston doing vocals with guests such as Toby Keith, Willie Nelson, Timothy B. Schmitt, and some others.  We view it as a novelty as should you- still, completists being what they are- a record company’s dream- will most likely want to seek this album out and to then add it to their collection.  Seek it out at your favorite haunt for music- digital or physical- and see if it’s something you want.
