216. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 04, 2022

2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden. A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.

  55. 2010 Wednesday: Officials estimate that 28,000 people have died from Mexican drug violence since December 2006.  One might question as to WHY the United Nations has not requested troops from across the world to go into that godforsaken country and eliminate the narcoterrorists?

  61. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia.  What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  62. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them.  Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?  Elsewhere, in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, former boy wonder pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli- a loser who jacked up the price of a generic drug to the point no one could afford it- undergoes conviction on three counts of securities fraud.
  63. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review.  The event was captured on live TV.  Even better, the former bus-driving thug Maduro blames the assassination attempt on Venezuelan exiles hiding in neighboring Colombia and on their handlers as well as the Venezuelan ‘mafia’ supposedly living in Florida.  Dude, STFU.
  64. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks.  Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.  Scumbags.  Elsewhere, Connor Bettis- a POS with a gun- hits the bar district in Dayton, Ohio, and kills 9 people and wounds another 27 before law enforcement arrives on scene and shoots the punk dead.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500.  Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem, or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!).  Wow.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 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.
  67. 2020 Tuesday 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: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 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: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  68. 2020 Tuesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  69. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus.  We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations! 
  70. 2020 Tuesday E: One teacher’s union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity.  Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.
  71. 2021 Wednesday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 200,907,364 confirmed cases, +660,570, 4,268,702 confirmed deaths, +9,788 and 180,887,601 confirmed recoveries, +375,059.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,159,774 confirmed cases, UP 101,353 from yesterday’s reporting, 631,256 confirmed deaths, UP 759, [ix] and 29,783,667 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,537.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]  
  72. 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 312,814 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 91,264 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xi]  
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 885,766 confirmed cases, 6,503 confirmed deaths, and 854,995 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Laos,[xii] 168th country on the list: 7,305 cases of the virus, 7 confirmed deaths and 3,804 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]

[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.97. In Lao Kip, one greenback equals 9,550.00 and in Latvian Lats, a buck equal 0.604 and in Lebanese Pound, one dollar equals 1,505.50 of theirs. [xvii]        
  76. 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 $4.387 per gallon, $3.025 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.865 in Washington state. [xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $3.128.  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- Cayman Islands: $4.929 per U.S. Gallon. [xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,602,871,192,916 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xx]  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 Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  77. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here’s the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ daily ticker: Border czar for 134 days and 40 days since her one and only visit to the southern border.  Next, One America News shared the latest figures on the illegal alien tidal wave overwhelming the country today.  Here we go: (1) Cost this day alone: $533,587,136.  Next, (2) here is the cost for caring for all these illegal aliens this year: $236,150,079,488.  Next, (3) Here is the estimate of the numbers of illegals who have poured across the U.S.-Mexico border just this year: 2,420,349.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens roaming the U.S.: 36,420,348.  (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 predicted as far back as 2009 when our original blogsite got underway that the numbers back then were between 35-50 million illegal aliens.  Now, we believe that number to be closer to 75-100 million.  A person cannot walk into a hardware store, go into a liquor store, dine at an outdoor restaurant without illegals running up and begging for food.  This must stop and it’s going to stop extremely soon…
  78. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– A federal judge blocks Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order prohibiting the transport of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State by anyone other than federal authorities.  The Texas Republican governor, however, is fighting back against this blatant overreach of power.  Elsewhere, slobbering Joe Biden continues blaming Texas and Florida for increasing the numbers of Chi-Vi cases.  ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis, R-FL, fired back at the counterfeit president, slamming him for allowing in millions of illegal aliens many of whom are infected with COVID-19 by telling him to ‘do your job and leave us alone.’  Man, the applause was tremendous.  Meanwhile, we have more numbers for the illegal alien invasion for the month of July: the Border Patrol caught 203,865 illegals, at least 37,252 were able to evade capture, 78 died, another 7,867 were guilty of NO violation, which leaves an outstanding number of 1,079 illegals.  Again, this is all a conservative estimate as the so-called ‘got-away folks’ are far higher than the numbers shown here.
  79. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Pakistan announced today that it has completed approximately 90-percent of the border wall with Afghanistan.  They don’t want Afghan refugees pouring into their country any more than Europeans want more Muslims, or the United States want more human refuse from around the world.  Good for them.  Elsewhere, Hezbollah scumbags fired some rockets into northern Israel today which led to the Israelis conducting artillery barrages on known jihadist sites in Lebanon.
  80. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is predicting that within a few weeks, there will be ‘200,000 cases of the Chi-Vi daily in the United States.’  (Note- this is all you need to know that the border must be closed and that every single illegal alien is rounded up, imprisoned, and then deported ASAP).  Meanwhile, Dr. Ashish Jha told Newsmax today that the NIH director Dr. Francis Collins was right to walk back mask comments.  The good doctor was saying stupid stuff like parents should wear masks at home around their children.  Enough already.    
  81. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The World Health Organization is calling for a moratorium on COVID-19 booster shots.  Oh, really?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms continue their bitching and whining over the recent GOP COVID-19 origins report that placed the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for infecting the entire world with their Frankenstein-like lab-created Wuhan Bat Flu Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control yesterday bowed to Democratic-Socialist pressure and re-enacted a moratorium on evictions, something they lack the power to do.  Doubts continue to build as to the legality of such an order by an entity with no power in this area.  Look, folks, this is what the Democrats love- they love rules and regulations, none of them backed up by laws.  This is how they punish people, how they persecute people, and how they crush people.  This is bullshit and we would suggest that landlords pay NO attention to this order.
  82. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Democratic Party leadership in the House is urging their wavering members to run as “Biden Democrats” or risk losing the majority in 2022.  Meanwhile, Senator Kevin Cramer, R-ND, has introduced a bill (that will go nowhere) that says ‘if a state mandates COVID-19 vaccine passports, it also must mandate VOTER ID.’  That bill is going nowhere.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is correct when he blasts the House Democrats for their ongoing crusade to get a hold of his tax returns.  Good for you.
  83. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– A new poll says that more than half of California’s Hispanic population wants the recall against Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to succeed and like everyone else, the Latinos are members of all parties.  Meanwhile, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says that ‘our grandchildren will suffer repaying Joe Biden’s massive debt.’  Amen.  In other political news, ‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani says that ‘Cuomo may be guilty, but he does deserve due process.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, is suing MSNBC’s Rachel “Mudslinger” Maddow for libel.  We hope you win, congressman.
  84. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– In other political news, a new poll says that almost everyone is against partisan gerrymandering.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnel, RINO-KY, has outlined demands for future spending bills.  Mitch, you don’t have any power.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden plans to shift arms export sales based on human rights concerns.  Looks like Saudi Arabia is not going to get its weapons.
  85. 2021 Wednesday N: Economic News– Last month, everyone was celebrating how many NEW private sector jobs Joe Biden was going to create and then whoops-a-daisy, bad economic news.  Last month, the Biden regime created ONLY 330,000 jobs- many of them no more than hamburger-flipper or taco-stuffer jobs- rather than the highly predicted number of 653,000 new jobs.  Growth in U.S. services sector hits a record high in July.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro says “U.S. pensions took a big hit from the Chi-Coms’ crackdown on BIG TECH.”
  86. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3583 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 04, 14, 18, 36, 43, and Mega 14.  Out of 89,945 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $33,312.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Culver City, CA 90232.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #869 with a jackpot of $211 million up for grabs: 05, 21, 32, 36, 58, and Powerball 14.  Out of 85,166 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,844 apiece.
  87. 2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden.  A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.  Drooling Joe told his then-boss Barack Hussein Obama (and probably still boss) NOT to whack Osama but Obama ‘All Drama’ did.  Now, Joe wants us to think he’s a big, macho machine ordering death and destruction on every fourth string, D-team terrorist.  Folks, I don’t buy this crap nor will I.  When and if they confirm the DNA of the dead terrorist to be him or not, it means NOTHING.  NOTHING.  Big frigging deal.  Joe, you aren’t Donald J. Trump.  You’re a senile bum.  Resign now.

184. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JULY 03, 2022

1942 Friday: Adolf Hitler and other officers fly to Field Marshal Von Bock’s headquarters in the Ukraine. The Fuhrer needs to keep maximum pressure on the Soviets as Case Blau- the 1942 campaign to secure the oilfields in the Caucasus- can proceed at full steam. The campaign will also include the investiture of Stalingrad on the Volga River as once the Volga supply line is cut, no more oil can flow north to Moscow and Soviet military operations there.

  50. 2003 Thursday: The U.S. put a $25 million bounty on Saddam Hussein, and $15 million apiece for each of his two murderous sons.  The $30 million reward for Odai and Qusai Hussein went to a tipster whose information led U.S. troops to their hideout, where the brothers died in a violent gun-battle.

  56. 2015 Friday: Aetna—health insurance company giant—announces that it is going to purchase Humana for $37 billion using a combination of cash and stocks.  The combining of the two companies will help them compete against rivals such as Anthem much better.

  58. 2018 Tuesday: Both the U.S. Justice and U.S. Education Departments rescind Obama-era affirmative action policies in college admissions. 
  59. 2019 Wednesday: According to ‘new research’ by Verisk Maplecroft, once again, the United States is ‘pure evil’ in that Americans produce the MOST WASTE per head and recycles the least, around 35-percent whereas Germany is the best in that it recycles at or around 68-percent.  What virtue signaling!  You go, Germany, after the trouble you caused the world in the 1930s and the 1940s, it’s good to see you trying to do something right.
  60. 2020 Friday: Today, President Donald J.

  64. 2021 Saturday:  Tensions continue building round Taiwan what with Chairman Xi threatening to invade FREE CHINA, the TRUE CHINA, the ONLY CHINA.  Japan is preparing to come to their defense along with whoever is running the show in Washington, D.C.  We think Chairman Xi is a lunatic… time to light up the Chi-Coms with neutron bombs.  Purify the land, reclaim it, and free Tibet, Hong Kong, Macau, get the Chi-Coms out of Nepal, Central Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, get them out…

[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.814.  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- Ghana: $4.091 per U.S. Gallon. [xvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,480,072,652,159 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position.    
  71. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I–  Here are today’s figures from One America News regarding the vast numbers of illegals residing in the country as well as the bottomless pool of money they are siphoning up from the back pockets of U.S. taxpayers.  First, here is the Cost this Day of caring for these parasites: $619,279,680.  Next, here is the Total Cost this Year of caring for these denizens of the Third World: $201,167,273,984 (and the Democrats are always promising black Americans ‘reparations for slavery.’ Well, the reparations are going to illegal aliens.  Next, here is the number of illegals who have crossed the border just this year: 2,061,803.   Next, here is the estimate of illegal aliens in the country as of today (and this is a modest number): 36,061,804.  As for other illegal alien news, today is Day No. 102 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be border czar and Day No. 8 since her last ‘photo op’ to El Paso, Texas.  The Bidenistas cannot figure out a way by which they can eject this pathetic excuse for a politician from the regime.  It’s not like Barack Hussein Obama can be vice president… 
  72. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Chi-Com hacking group, ‘Indigozebra,’ is getting the blame for hacking into more than 1,000 businesses and infecting their computers with ransomware.  That’s the Chi-Coms for you.  Meanwhile, Israel is investigating a half-assed missile attack on one of its cargo ships plying the waters of the northern Indian Ocean.  The CSAV Tyndall, owned and operated by Israel until recently suffered minor damage from a missile suspected to be from Iran.  Israel, drop a nuke on those backward bastards.  Light them up!
  73. 2021 Saturday H: Political News I– Governor Larry Hogan, RINO-MD, is demanding that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer stop playing politics with the infrastructure, meaning it’s time for them to ‘shit or get the hell off the pot.’  It’s pretty flipping bad when a RINO is bitching out the half-witted Democratic Party leadership but he’s right.  Get it going Chuck and Nancy.   Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, Rep. Pete Sessions, R-TX 17th congressional district, says that the ‘January 06, 2021 ‘probe’ is a load of partisan crap.’  In other political news, Joe Biden named Amy Gutmann to be U.S. ambassador to Germany.
  74. 2021 Saturday I: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Some wag fired 23 shots into the home of Alabama Senator Vivian Davis Figures.  Since she is a Democrat, it was probably a Jussie Smollett-style setup to gin up anger among certain communities so as to get the pot boiling before summer truly gets underway.   In other news, police take 11 men into custody after a tense standoff between the heavily armed individuals and the cops in Wakefield, Massachusetts.  In other crime-related news, Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot is blaming- get this- President Donald J. Trump for the humongous spike in shootings and other violence and has called Newsmax for reporting on this tragedy ‘incendiary.’  What is wrong with this crackpot woman?
  75. 2021 Saturday J: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3574 with a $61 million pot on the line: 04, 09, 21, 33, 40, and Mega 16.  Out of 135,590 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $50,773.  The winning ticket was sold at CVS in Benicia, CA 94510.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #860 with a $113 million pot up for grabs: 26, 40, 41, 55, 65, and Powerball 24.  Out of 58,617 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $33,371.

182. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 01, 2022

2022 Friday: We will see what happens today and when we do, we will share it with everyone. However, we will do our best to remain one step ahead of the Joestapo. Meanwhile, a grateful nation celebrates as homosexual pride month is now in the books and normal folks can go about their business without being bombarded by a constant barrage of gay this and gay that. Enough is f**king enough already, unlike every other religious, ethnic, or racial minority, being gay is 99.99-percent a choice. The other miniscule percentile could be born that way but before scientists find the elusive gay gene, NO one can say otherwise. Period.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 133

182. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 01, 2022:

Kleppe; U.S. Secretaries of State John Forsyth and John Milton Hay; U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Levi Woodbury; U.S. Secretary of War Luke Edward Wright; U.S. Senator Joni Ernst; Argentine President Juan Domingo Perón; Chef Blogger Vladimir Gdansk, “Sergeant-Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band” by the Beatles, Blondie featuring Deborah Harry, the Doors featuring Marc Benno, the Four Tops featuring Renaldo “Obie” Benson, Steppenwolf featuring Rushton Moreve, Trapeze featuring Mel Galley, and the Village People featuring Victor Willis:

  1. 70 Tuesday: Roman General Titus orders his legionnaires to set up battering rams to begin the attack on the inner walls of Jerusalem during the Great Jewish War.  Seething with hatred for their vile enemies, the Romans cannot wait to grapple with their disunited enemies.  Various sects of Jews are fighting with one another just as they are the new Christian sect.  Much blood will be shed before the Romans achieve victory but once they do, they will destroy the city and drag the survivors off into slavery.
  2. 649 Sunday: Bishops elect Martin I to succeed the 73rd Roman Catholic Pope Theodore I to become the 74th pope.  Martin would serve from today until November 12, 655 while his predecessor- Theodore I- served from November 24, 642 until May 14, 649.  
  3. 1535 Monday: Sir Thomas Moore went on trial in England, charged with high treason for rejecting the Oath of Supremacy.  Unfortunately, for him, the court convicted him and had him executed.
  4. 1643 Wednesday: On this date, a gathering of theologians and members of the English Parliament joined together to restructure the Church of England at the Westminster Assembly.
  5. 1798 Sunday: Napoleon Bonaparte’s invasion fleet reaches Alexandria, Egypt.  This was a great eastward strike with which to establish a French empire of sorts albeit a short-lived one.

  11. 1863 Wednesday: The pivotal, three-day Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, resulting in a Union victory, began in Pennsylvania.  This would be one of the all-time bloodiest battles in the fight to free the slaves.  Little would anyone know that in 2021, even those who fought for freedom for others would be vilified as slaveholders and racists by dimwits on the millennial generation.  This is what happens when children are spared the belt across their asses.
  12. 1867 Monday: Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain as the British North American Act took effect with Sir John A. Macdonald taking the oath of office as the first Prime Minister of Canada.

  20. 1908 Wednesday: The 43rd U.S. Secretary of War Luke Edward Wright assumed his position on this date.  Early in his life, Wright was a Democrat but then learned the error of his ways and became a Republican.  In so doing, he served under President Theodore Roosevelt from today until March 11, 1909.

  30. 1941 Tuesday: Bulova Watch Company sponsored the first TV commercial in New York.  Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, the German conquest of the Soviet Union continues unabated.  As in the Ukraine, the citizens of the Baltic States welcome the Germans as they steamroll through their territory.  Lithuanians, Latvians, and Estonians all despises the godless communist regime in Moscow and view the Nazis as allies.  Many of them would serve in various auxiliary units under German command in the fight against the Jews and Partisans.

  64. 2014 Tuesday: Japan updates its constitution so that its self-defense forces can assist in the defense of allied nations coming under attack by foreign enemies.  However, the change has nothing to do with sending military assets on foreign military adventurism.  Elsewhere, David Greenglass, the star witness in the trial of his sister Ethel Rosenberg and her husband, Julius, died in New York City at age 92.  Ethel and Julius Rosenberg underwent execution via the electric chair in 1953 for conspiring to pass secrets about the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union; Greenglass served 10 years in prison for espionage followed by years of living under an assumed name.

  68. 2018 Sunday: Mexican voters- angry over corruption and narco-trafficker violence, elected leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as president.  Meanwhile, Canada began imposing tariffs on $12.6 billion in U.S. goods in retaliation for the Trump administration’s new taxes on steel and aluminum imported to the United States.

  70. 2020 Wednesday: Two Republican senators- Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and James Lankford of Oklahoma- have written a bill that will abolish- we repeat, ABOLISH- Columbus Day and will replace it with Juneteenth.  While nothing is wrong with making Juneteenth a federal holiday, abolishing Columbus Day to appease a left-wing communist mob is f**king insane.  Stop pandering to communists, you pathetic morons.  We will remember you and will add you to the infamous list upon which, Mitt Romney, another RINO POS of pandering s**t is a member.  Do not negate the nation’s history, either good or bad, or suffer negation yourselves.  Meanwhile, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio announces a $1 billion cut to the NYPD’s budget, even with murders and violent crimes skyrocketing.  WTF?

Trump to rescind his recent executive order with which, he temporarily stops the vast numbers of guest workers entry to the country because in this time of a downturned economy, Americans should have first crack at ALL jobs and not imported illegals.  We hope the president will also deport Sundar Pichai and his family, whether born in the USA or not, because he is a scumbag who closed our blogs.

  80. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As the ‘Border Czar’ continues driving her staff members to the point of insanity, fentanyl seizures continue in record numbers along the southern border, fentanyl, by the way, manufactured in communist China.   We learned something else today about ‘Border Czar’ Harris that when she went to Guatemala and to Mexico, the people called her “Que-Mala Kamala,” meaning ‘how bad Kamala.’  Now that’s hilarious.  In other news, it’s official, South Dakota is sending National Guard troops and law enforcement to the southern border to help Texas.
  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– One communist thug to another: Kim Jong Un of North Korea praised the Chinese Communist Party for its centennial celebrations.  He promised to boost the strategic relationship between the two totalitarian comrades.   However, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that the world ‘cannot forget the Chi-Com brutality.’  Speaking of thugs, another thug, Vladimir Putin, made it official today when he signed a bill into law that would force BIG TECH/SOCIAL MEDIA entities to open official offices within Russia.  Excellent.  In other news, RINO GOP senators are pushing slobbering Joe Biden to end Trump-era trade wars so business can return to usual

  84. : Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Democratic-Socialists cannot run elections.  We learned that from Iowa in 2020 and we are learning it now in the disastrous mess in New York City in the mayoral race.  Election leaders met secretly to see if they could somehow make things right, but no one knows who the winner will be and the results aren’t expected anytime soon.  In the meantime, they are all jockeying around to see if they can steal the election from those deserving of it and to give it someone who simply is not.  Stay tuned.
  85. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden went to Surfside, Florida, today to visit with the family members of the victims of the condominium collapse.  It was a cordial visit, and it appeared his anti-Alzheimer’s medications were working well.  Bully for us. 
  86. : Political News I– It appears that the Dems’ scheme of court-packing is collapsing just as their attempt to overthrow the nation’s elections system by putting it under federal control- like in a banana republic.  In other political news, the largest teachers’ union in the country is going to invest into opposition research into ALL who oppose Criminal Race Theory, uh, excuse us, “Critical Race Theory.”  What does this tell you?  That CRT is more communist claptrap.   Dr. Ben Carson told Newsmax today that CRT is a ‘bunch of crap.’
  87. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II- Rep. Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st CD, says that IF NFL star Hershel Walker does not run for the U.S. Senate seat that crackpot Marxist ‘Reverend’ Rafael Warnock, he sure the hell will.  Good.  He would make an awesome senator.   In other political news, RINO Nikki Haley says that the GOP is ‘too lenient’ when it comes to Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th CD.  (Note- we believe she needs to be stripped of her citizenship and deported back to Somalia or whatever other s—hole country she came from- ingrate!)
  88. 2021 Thursday O: U.S. Supreme Court News I– In a 6-3 vote in the U.S. Supreme Court today, the high court upheld Arizona’s new election laws, ones that forbid BALLOT HARVESTING as well as allows for the discarding of votes cast in the WRONG PRECINCT.  Excellent.  Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘of course the court would uphold Arizona’s voting laws.’   In other big SCOTUS news, the Supreme Court tossed on the garbage heap the California ‘donor disclosure’ law that forced those who donated to politicians, parties, and causes to have their names and addresses published.  Excellent.
  89. 2021 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The CBO projects the federal deficit will hit $3 trillion this year with more to come.  How nice.  In other Biden regime news, the U.S. is going after 17 countries who do nothing about human trafficking and who must be held to account.

Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, commented on this sham ‘committee’ today at his weekly press conference.  The House minority leader said that ‘it’s very strange that “Mumbles” Pelosi appointed so-called ‘Republican’ Rep. Liz Cheney, Wyoming, to the committee as the ONLY Republican.  He said it was strange that HE did not make the appointment because on select committees the party head does the appointing.  Not so here.   Speaking of this mess, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th CD, says ‘Mumbles’ ‘select committee’ is ‘impeachment round 3.’  Yup.  Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th CD, says that ‘Mumbles’ committee is strictly a partisan exercise.

  98. 2021 Thursday Y: New York State News– Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr. slapped handcuffs on Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg and paraded him before the news cameras in yet another show of going after all-things ‘Trump’ and finding someone- anyone- who might flip.  The New York Post says this is ‘banana republic-style stuff.’  However, news reports inform the American people that all this crap-assed persecution is strengthening both the 45th president and his supporters.
  99. 2021 Thursday Z: Sports News I– The NCAA will allow student athletes to profit off their names, images, and likenesses.
  100. 2022 Friday: We will see what happens today and when we do, we will share it with everyone.  However, we will do our best to remain one step ahead of the Joestapo.  Meanwhile, a grateful nation celebrates as homosexual pride month is now in the books and normal folks can go about their business without being bombarded by a barrage of constant gay this and gay that.  Enough is f**king enough already, unlike every other religious, ethnic, or racial minority, being gay is 99.99-percent a choice.  The other miniscule percentile could be born that way but before scientists find the elusive gay gene, NO one can say otherwise.  Period.  -Chef Brian C. Carrick.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys next studio album, “Summer in Paradise,” came out on August 03, 1992.  The band was a quartet now featuring Mike Love, Carl Wilson, Bruce Johnston, and Alan Jardine on vocals.  Johnston also provided keyboards, but the musicianship was provided by a stable of studio and touring musicians.  Although imbued with a ‘green theme,’ the album was not well-received and sold poorly which is sad.  Still, compared with other groups with the same lifespan, the band still finds time to write, record, and tour, always touring.  We hope you will seek this one out, especially for the novelty of the opening track, Sly and the Family Stone’s “Hot Fun in the Summertime.”  Besides new tunes, there are also several covers which makes this one yet another must-own for completists.  Seek it out, give it a listen, and incorporate into your collection of the best in music.

43. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2022

2021 Friday E: In a fit of outrage, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi forbids Representative Claudia Tenney, Republican- who just won NY-22 House race by 109 votes- from having her family present at her swearing in on Capitol Hill. Congresswoman Tenney’s son, a recent graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy and in uniform was deemed a “RISK” by the senile head of the House. What a national embarrassment.

  70. 2019 Tuesday: After 200 hours of testimony in a federal courtroom, a jury finds Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman guilty of all 10 federal crimes with which, they charged him.  Meanwhile, after a lengthy dispute with Greece, Macedonia changes its name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia.   Elsewhere, much to the delight of Democrats in the United States, Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro tells a BBC reporter that U.S. President Donald J. Trump is a white supremacist who is actively ‘warmongering’ against his country and says that the “Ku Klux Klan is running the White House.”  Now where could this ignorant POS have gotten these comments?  The Democratic Party and their allies in the Fake News Media?  We’d lay our money on this!
  71. 2020 Wednesday: As the coronavirus outbreak continues to worsen around the planet, Tonga forbids four cruise ships from docking while in Cambodia, the government there says it’s okay for the MS Westerdam to disembark more than 2,000 after several other nations in the region turned the cruise ship away.  Elsewhere, all manner of other nations are canceling all manner of events and happenings out of fear of the rapidly spreading Wuhan Flu.    Elsewhere, Democratic 2020 presidential candidate and former governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick suspends his brief campaign. 
  72. 2021 Friday:  Day 24 of the Biden Regime: the border policies of the Biden administration (or lack of them, we should say) are coming under increased fire as hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are flowing north through Mexico and attempting to storm the southern border.  NO one is checking the dregs of the Third World for the infamous Chi-Vi.  Good going, ‘Usurper Joe!’  Speaking of the Biden regime, his family is coming under increased fire from people on all side of the aisle over his claims that family members will have no place within his administration when in fact, they are enriching themselves like gorging leeches on a floundering swimmer in the Amazon River.  Speaking of Joe Biden, he is attempting to blame his predecessor for his inability to roll out vaccines with which to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  You go, Joe, you go!  Finally, Joe Biden announces he is going to permit in 25,000 refugees immediately (among whom we suspect will be foreign intelligence agents seeking to target U.S. citizens opposing their countries).   Joe Biden also cuts off all emergency funding for the southern border wall.
  73. 2021 Friday A: Speaking of the Biden administration, a now capsizing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, D-NY, is deflecting criticism of his murder of the ill, the infirm, the disabled, and the mentally ill in rest homes onto the back of the Biden crew.  Wow.  How quickly the maggots turn!  Speaking of New York Democrats, Dems across the state are being hammered with the tragic loss of life their inept at best and criminal at worst policies have done to the citizens of the Empire State.  Regarding the Chinese Virus, more than 8 million Americans slipped into poverty in the second half of last year thanks to the Wuhan Flu.  “Pro-China Joe” said he had a plan- where is the plan, Joe?
  74. 2021 Friday B: The Trump defense team is blasting major holes in the House managers’ flawed arguments showing film clips the Democrats edited to make Trump appear a criminal by showing the films in their entirety as well as innumerable clips of Democrats talking about violence, threatening violence, joking about violence (man, Kamala’s laugh is worse than Hillary’s and that is pretty bad, folks), and guaranteeing violence.  Republicans have met with the defense team in preparation for the devastation coming the way of the Democrats in the U.S. Senate today.  We contend it’s going to be extremely difficult for the RINOs to vote to convict ex-President Trump just as it will for several Democrats whose allegiance is to the Constitution of the United States and not to Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.
  75. 2021 Friday C: The People’s Republic of China bans BBC World News from within its borders.  We thought you had nothing to hide, Chairman Xi?   Meanwhile, Russia threatens to cut off ties with the European Union if they impose any additional economic sanctions upon the country over the arrest of Alexei Navalny and protesters favorable to him.  That means natural gas supplies you get from the Russkies could be terminated.  You probably miss Donald J. Trump by now, don’t you?  Elsewhere, New Zealand announces plans to roll out vaccines for the Chi-Vi beginning next week.  Finally, we learn today that the Biden regime’s energy policies favor foreign nations over the country he was supposedly elected to lead.  First, loss of high-paying energy jobs to Canada and to China.  Second, energy independence is thrown out the window in favor of importing oil from OPEC, Russia, Venezuela, and other places inimical to U.S. interests.  Third and final, stifling U.S. energy production benefits Chairman Xi, Vladimir Putin, the Grand Ayatollah, Burisma, and Nicolas Maduro.  Good going, Joe.  Finally, “Pro-China Joe” is being blasted for repealing a Trump executive order that prohibited purchase of and installation of foreign energy equipment in the American power grid.
  76. 2021 Friday D: Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Democrat, signals she will oppose the Biden administration’s demand for a $15 per hour minimum wage.  Meanwhile, in New Hampshire, a hand recount shows that in the 7th congressional district, a place in which, DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS MACHINES AND SMARTMATIC SOFTWARE WAS EMPLOYED, an average of 300 votes was deducted from every statewide or national Republican candidate and flipped to the Democrats.  Yet, both of these disingenuous companies- Dominion and Smartmatic- swear there’s ‘nothing to see here.’  The entire 2020 election cycle is (ALLEGEDLY) marred by these two crap companies and their Democrat bosses.    Elsewhere, the North Dakota Senate is considering a bill that prohibits trannys from participating in scholastic sports.  (Note- Chef Elmer on Monday is going to make an argument that a third category of school sports should be created- Transsexual Sports.  This would make both boys and girls competing in sports happy and it would acknowledge the greater increase of students who are confused about their sexual identity and who can then compete with one another fairly).
  77. 2021 Friday E: In a fit of outrage, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi forbids Representative Claudia Tenney, Republican- who just won NY-22 House race by 109 votes- from having her family present at her swearing in on Capitol Hill.  Congresswoman Tenney’s son, a recent graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy and in uniform was deemed a “RISK” by the senile head of the House.  What a national embarrassment.  The Speaker has National Guard units all over Washington, D.C., and yet, she won’t permit a uniformed member from entering the House?  What a disgrace.  Next, a House committee plans to give U.S. airlines $14 billion in COVID-19 relief aid.  Meanwhile, dating app Bumble surges in its IPO in its first day of trading.  Elsewhere, L’Oréal sales shoot up to hit $95 billion in Q4 2020 due to a 62-percent spike in online sales.  Sales in the People’s Republic of (Communist) China saw an increase of 27-percent.  Finally, a judge declines to issue both a new warrant and a jacked-up bail amount for patriot Kyle Rittenhouse, accused of murdering two Antifa thugs who were trying to murder him.  A clear case of SELF DEFENSE.  
  78. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 108,043,938 confirmed cases, +538,271, 2,377,988, confirmed deaths, +20,513, and 60,504,739 confirmed recoveries, +368,271.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,716,018 confirmed cases, up 176,801 from yesterday’s reporting, 483,695 confirmed deaths, UP 10,472, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 24 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 154,300 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  79. 2021 Friday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,460,320 confirmed cases, 46,002 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,370 confirmed cases, 425 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 329,170 confirmed cases, 4,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: New Jersey- currently, they have 740,016 confirmed cases, 22,393 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 718,746 confirmed cases, 5,304 confirmed deaths, and 651,522 confirmed recoveries.     
  80. 2021 Friday H: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,748 cases, +14 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,292 confirmed recoveries, +825 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Rodent-eating scum. 
  81. 2021 Friday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,458.40, UP 27.70 points (+0.88%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,095.47, UP 69.70 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,934.83, UP 18.45 points (+0.47%). We reiterate what we mentioned last week: markets are UP because they believe ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden is going to borrow TRILLIONS from the Chi-Coms.  We still predict that by June 2021, the triple whammy of a $15 minimum wage, ongoing pandemic politics, skyrocketing energy and food prices, and massive illegal aliens numbers are going to tank the economy worse than 1929.  Bad economic times are on the horizon because the economy cannot handle multiple hits of Chi-Vi, a jacked-up minimum wage that is going to cost American workers jobs while allowing employers to hire ILLEGAL ALIENS under the table and providing them NO Obamacare.  It is going to be extremely ugly, and we have a ‘president’ sitting around spanking the Toobin in the White House.
  82. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,823.20 per troy oz., -3.60 (-0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $27.33 per troy ounce, +0.28 (+1.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.38 per troy oz, +18.70 (+1.51%) while the price of COPPER is $3.80 per pound, +0.01 (+0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,393.00 per troy oz, +39.50 (+1.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.73 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.44%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.52 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.
  83. 2021 Friday K: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Drawing #1633: 05, 14, 24, 25, 27, and Mega 14.  Out of 74,680 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $2,881,341.
  84. 2021 Friday L: Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says she ‘hopes that Joe Biden understands that the Chi-Coms are not our friends.’  This after “Pro-China Joe” schmoozed with Xi Jinping on the Chi-Coms earlier in the week, reportedly for two hours.  Who believes this?   Next, Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that in regard to the bogus impeachment trial occurring in the U.S. Senate, i.e., the Stalinist Show Trial Extraordinaire, “Trump’s lawyers have won.”  We concur.   Trump’s lawyers are rating higher performance marks today as their video presentation blew the Democrats’ highly produced and doctored video clips- provided to them by ANTIFA, no less, look like the steaming pile of fecal matter that it is.  We expect many of these Democrats are going to lose their seats in next year’s Mid-Term Elections.  We will work to make it so.
  85. 2021 Friday M: Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, his State Department has scheduled a ‘racism is America’s number one national security threat.’  For God’s sake, because when things get better and people are moving on, you pull us all back into the cesspool and dirty everyone, black, white, brown, red, yellow, and every shade in between.  Stop it already!  Elsewhere, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece tells him that ‘governors and mayors need $350 billion in Xi Jinping Bat Flu relief’ as without it, dimwits such as Gavin Newsom, Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Larry Hogan, and other Democrat and RINO putzes will go under and probably see their states flip from BLUE to RED.  Finally, Jen Psaki says she suspended an aide for ‘one-week sans pay’ for having told an inquiring White House reporter asking about his relationship with a fellow journalist.  Apparently, aide T. J. Ducklo told the female reporter, “I will destroy you for asking this question.”  When Psaki was asked whether the president knew about it or not, she said, “NO.  I acted on my own.”  Joe Biden did say anyone belittling anyone in his administration would ‘be fired on the spot’ in a very Donald Trump-like moment.
  86. 2021 Friday N: Another Lincoln Project founder bites the dust: Steve Schmidt.  All of these guys have problems and character flaws, covering up for pervert John Weaver who has been sleeping with 14-year-old boys.  What the hell is wrong with these RINO sickos?  More to come on this story, folks.  We learn that $50 million of the $90 million received by these scumbags went to businesses associated with said scumbags.  Once again, we have another self-enrichment scheme and lawsuits are piling up, soon to hit this bogus group of disgruntled losers.  Wow.  What will be the next shoe to drop?  George Conway?  
  87. 2021 Friday O: New York Attorney General Leticia James calls for a dismissal of the National Rifle Association’s Chapter 11 Bankruptcy claiming it’s in “bad faith.”  Meanwhile, strong defender of free and fair elections, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton finds himself smeared with allegations of ‘trading favors in exchange for a home remodel and a job for his mistress.’  Sounds like something Democrats do.  Moving on, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax a couple of things: first, the Trump impeachment trial is little more than a ‘joke.’  Next- and we have been expecting this although not as early as it’s come- Nikki Haley slams Trump, belittles him and says he’s not the ‘leader of the party.’  To this, Mr. Grenell dismisses her comments as nothing and says, ‘Trump is indeed the leader of the party.’  We expect that she- like other RINOs- will vie for the 2024 nomination of the GOP, expecting that once again, Republicans having no alternative will vote for ‘the lesser of two evils.’  Not so.  No more.  Nikki, find out at your own risk.
  88. 2021 Friday P: The World Health Organization now is backing away from its absolute denial of the Wuhan Virus coming out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  We guess they are feeling the heat.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms’ malign influence, Disney (NO one should see the movie, “Mulan”) is remaining mum on the growing news of systemic rapes of Uighur Muslim women in the ‘paradise province’ of Xinjiang, western China, a place where every manufacturer lacking a conscience has slave labor making their products.  This is where Disney filmed “Mulan.”  The NBA, yep, they are total scum, and we are big proponents of the National Basketball Association relocating their entire operation to communist China, seeing as how they love the Chi-Coms as much as they do.  
  89. 2021 Friday Q: Elsewhere, things continue going from bad to worse for New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Can we expect to see this POS in an orange jumpsuit anytime soon?  Speaking of the notorious Beijing Bug sweeping the world, California is trying to correct its myriad mistakes and is begging for vaccines to arrive in the state.  Governor Gavin Newsom is such an inept fool (he’s Nancy Pelosi’s beloved nephew) that there is nothing he can do to save himself.  Instead of putting $4 billion into vaccine procurement, he’s putting it into the money-laundering California High-Speed Rail boondoggle.  WTF?
  90. 2022 Saturday: ¿Qué locuras pueden ocurrir hoy?  Quédate y descúbrelo con el resto de nosotros.  Nadie sabe lo que esta administración presidencial está arruinando hoy…

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Friday, February 12, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Saturday, February 12, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012.  We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

[ii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iv] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

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

[viii] Present the music of Adele one day?  If we are still around in 15-20 years, we just might.

[ix] God created the neutron bomb for wiping out maggots like these scum.  President Trump: LIGHT THEM UP!

[x] Does anyone ever question WHY Germany has become Russia’s bitch?

[xi] Climate change is a hoax, the way the Democrats and liberals around the world present it.  The climate is always changing but the solar activity- abundance or lack of sunspots and solar flares- is the driving force and it changes the climate on every planet in our Solar System.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

¡Tienes que irte, maldito Joe!

32. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022

1968 Thursday: During the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, the photo seen around the world: Saigon police chief Nguyen Ngoc Loan executes a captured Viet Cong officer with a bullet shot to the head. This would cause outrage around the First World with many claiming it to be an atrocity. We, however, have a different view: the guy was a communist terrorist and under the rules of modern warfare had NO rights whatsoever. The military codes in existence around the world recognize that terrorists, spies, guerillas, and others operating out of uniform can be executed in the field.

  78. 2017 Wednesday: The 69th U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson assumes his post on this date.  A Republican, he would serve under President Donald J.

  84. 2021 Monday B: GOP lawmakers are asking the Federal Elections Commission if it’s permissible to use campaign donations to fund bodyguards.  Meanwhile, House Dems are trying to bully House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, into stripping Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA, of her committee assignments.  In other disturbing news, it now appears that Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Republican, has drunk from the well of Kool-Aid and last week threw President Donald J. Trump under the bus blaming the 45th president’s ‘speech’ for what happened on January 6, 2021.  NOT an effective way to seek to remain a stalwart in the GOP there, senator, especially when evidence continues mounting showing that the riot was planned weeks ahead of the day of the mob riots.  We know the pipe bombs were planted the previous day. 
  85. 2021 Monday C: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 103,090,224 confirmed cases, +250,043, 2,230,829, confirmed deaths, +5,527, and 57,160,018 confirmed recoveries, +185,109.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,440,519 confirmed cases, up 132,229 from yesterday’s reporting, 446,267 confirmed deaths, UP 2,450, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than a week- what’s up with that?

  88. 2021 Monday F: U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announces the LGBTQIA+ pride flag will fly at ALL U.S. embassies around the world during pride month festivities.   Next, the Dems move to pass their $1.9 trillion ‘COVID-19 relief bill/stimulus bill’ sans any GOP support even though 10 moderate to RINO Republicans are trying to meet with President Joe Biden.   Next, some moron nominates Black Lives Matter for a Nobel Peace Prize after the scum rioted all summer long, burned buildings, harmed, and murdered cops, and ran amok in the streets of America.  Elsewhere, Dems are seeking to hold hearings for Biden attorney-general nominee Merrick Garland sometime later this month.   Meanwhile, homicide rates in 2020 jumped 30-percent from the previous year.   Finally, moron Congresswoman Jackie Speier urges President Joe Biden to declare WHITE SUPREMACISM AND VIOLENT EXTREMISM (unless it’s committed by Antifa and Black Lives Matter) as a NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT.  Wow.  These losers are truly pushing the ball, folks…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s next album, “Festival Bell,” came out on January 18, 2011, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 14 glorious tracks, 10 of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

Monday, February 01, 2021, Today in History:  

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Tuesday, February 01, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iv] Something else of importance to note is that the U.S. was a guest of the South Vietnamese, helping them fight off the communist threat from North Vietnam and from communist thugs- the Viet Cong- in the South.  Thus, they had the right to do whatever they deemed necessary to do.  At the time of the execution, the battle was in full swing with the outcome possibly in doubt, so the SV police official did what he felt he had to do.  It is what it is and one other thing everyone should remember: IF you are going to fight a war against guerillas, do not allow the press free access to combat operations.  We believe we lost the war in South Vietnam because of two important issues: (1) the military did not capture territory and then hold it as it did in every previous war but beat the enemy and then allowed them to return the moment we left.  (2) The press cost us the war because it portrayed nothing but negative images to the home front, thus sapping the American people’s will to fight and helping sow the seeds of division by creating dissension among the American public.  Virtually every older scumbag in left-wing news today got their start shaping the antiwar movement in the 1960s and especially after 1968.  

[v] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  69. 2018 Wednesday: The district attorney of San Francisco, George Gascón says that the city by the bay is going to retroactively apply its new laws regarding the now legal use of marijuana to 5,000 old convictions which is the correct thing to do.  Far too many people in the 1960s like Dino Valenti and David Freiberg of Quicksilver Messenger Service[xiii] served time for unfair convictions.  Usually, we don’t agree with most of what comes out of Frisco but this time, yes, yes, we do.
  70. 2019 Thursday: The European Parliament votes to recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate ruler in Caracas which leads the Maduro regime to begin arresting foreign journalists from Spain, France, and neighboring Columbia.  The Venezuelan secret police are going out and rounding up everyone they deem to be a threat.
  71. 2020 Friday: Today is the day- or so millions of Americans hope- that the impeachment farce of President Donald J. Trump will move to a vote for acquittal or if the Democrats are lucky to get what they seek- witnesses will occur.  Let us hope for the former and not the latter.  By mid-day, the Senate voted 51-49 against calling witnesses, deflating the sputtering Democratic Party balloon.  Two Republicans- Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah voted with the Democrats.  Meanwhile, the first Democrat to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination- former Maryland Congressman John Delaney and seemingly decent guy became the 16th Democrat to bail from the race.  He entered the race- get this- on July 28, 2017.  Oh, well.  Elsewhere, the Kung Flu continues spreading across the globe.  Italy reports its first couple of cases and prohibits cruise ships from offloading thousands of passengers.  Democrats in the U.S. tell everyone to go to “Chinatown,” to ‘go hug Chinese people.’  That advice would devastate Italy and other WOKE Western nations.  
  72. 2021 Sunday: DAY TWELVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME: the Biden White House says that IT’S going to investigate the GameStop matter.  Uh, excuse us, Joe, isn’t that the job of the Treasury or Justice Departments?   Meanwhile, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom now is coming under verbal assault from Democrats besides Republicans as the numbers demanding his recall continue increasing by the day.  This loser- Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- is going to lose his seat.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and the GOP have raised $255.4 million in the two months since Election Day 2020.  Elsewhere, 39.6 million Americans underwent FBI background checks for gun purchases.  Heck,  some of the chef-bloggers here bought guns last year, there is NO way we wouldn’t, especially when you consider all the left-wing Marxist violence in the streets.
  73. 2021 Sunday A:  Officer Brian Sicknick- the Capitol Hill police officer slain by Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs during the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6 will lie in state in the Rotunda in the building where he served later this week.  Elsewhere, we learn- no big surprise- that 98-percent of Twitter employees donated to Democrats.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Claudia Tenney’s lead in her New York Congressional race is now becoming insurmountable and we expect a judge early this upcoming week to announce her the ‘winner.’  Next, President Donald J. Trump once again has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.   Finally, the Arizona state senate is hiring its own investigators to delve into the rampant election fraud that occurred in that state.        
  74. 2021 Sunday B: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,871,614 confirmed cases, +468,367, 2,225,773, confirmed deaths, +11,160, and 56,981,674 confirmed recoveries, +326,805.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,423,597 confirmed cases, up 140,106 from yesterday’s reporting, 446,010 confirmed deaths, UP 2,481, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported earlier this week.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic old fool.  NOW.
  75. 2021 Sunday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,309,463 confirmed cases, 40,697 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 315,448 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the Northern Marianas Islands: currently, they have 131 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 643,435 confirmed cases, 4,796 confirmed deaths, and 572,511 confirmed recoveries.   
  76. 2021 Sunday D: Warnings are being raised about Chi-Com megacorporation BGI Group, an entity that ostensibly seeks to process data from COVID-19 tests from around the world all for a generous price and plenty of donations where and when necessary to open the doors for them.  In exchange, they collect biodata of U.S. and global citizens which then is shipped back to the Chi-Coms who then store this data for future use.  Anytime the Chi-Coms say they want to ‘help’ a country is when everyone must awaken, take note, and begin working to push back against these totalitarian, fascist-communist thugs.  We must be aware of everything the Chi-Coms seek to do with U.S. biodata as you can be sure they are going to use it against the American people, NOT to help them as they proclaim.
  77. 2021 Sunday E: BIG NFL NEWS- L.A. Rams quarterback Jared Goff has been traded to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.  The Lions will also receive two 1st round and one 3rd round draft pick.  NO PRO BOWL THIS YEAR THANKS TO THE CHI-COMS AND THEIR FLIPPING VIRUS.
  78. 2022 Monday: Stick around for the news of the day…

Sunday, January 31, 2021, Today in History:  

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Monday, January 31, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

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

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[v] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[viii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

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

[x] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.

[xi] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[xii] We should have promoted the music of Asia around the time we did King Crimson and/or Family but we failed to do so.  However, we hope to do so sometime within the next 10-15 years.  

[xiii] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A.

  68. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Castle Music label compiled a ‘best of’ collection for Sandy Denny that came out on April 12, 2005: “Where the Time Goes- Sandy ‘67.”  The album features a collection of 18 glorious tracks running from her earliest days prior to her association with Fairport Convention, Fotheringay, and Fairport Convention again and prior to her final solo career.  Thus, you get lots of acoustic Sandy mostly alone but with others including a unique collaboration with the Strawbs, another folkie acoustical group from the UK.  We hope you will investigate this one for yourselves, give it a good listen, and then consider adding it to your growing collection of music from this devoted vocalist and songwriter.  You will be so glad you did.  Enjoy.

They provided no other information as to what its purpose on the moon is going to be.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are angry with Australia for pulling closer to the U.S. and because they are beefing up their own defenses to deter aggression from the communist thugs.   Elsewhere, U.S. Attorney-General William Barr says the Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the country that would overturn the election results.  However, if one watches OAN and watches the hours of testimony in various battleground states across the nation, one understands that the fraud was rampant, planned, and well-coordinated.  Of course, no one cares about that now…

Only one other president- Grover Cleveland- accomplished this by being the 22nd and the 24th presidents of the United States.   Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard becomes yet another industry located in California to throw in the towel and to announce it’s moving to Texas.  Note- just don’t bring your left-wing politics with you and tear up the Lone Star State.  Elsewhere, former President Barack Hussein Obama slams those seeking to ‘defund the police,’ calling them ‘crazy.’   Speaking of the police, the Fraternal Order of Police reports that in 2020, 283 cops have been shot across the country with an astounding number of 44 killed in action.  This is not good, and it must stop.  In Seattle, lawmakers plan to slash the Seattle Police Department’s budget for 2021 by 18-percent all the while homicides within the city are skyrocketing.  So far this year, 55 people have been murdered in the city.  In Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, violent car-jackings are up by a whopping 537 percent.

The combined estates of Sandy Denny and her late husband, Trevor Lucas combined to release a fitting conclusion to their careers: “The Attic Tracks 1972-1984” (February 11, 1995).  This stunning effort features classics, unreleased material, and rarities, all combined together to present a compelling picture of what a renowned artist Ms. Denny was, augmented by her husband.  This one can sometimes be challenging to find; however, if you visit sites such as AllMusic, Discogs, and other online emporiums of music, you might find it at a decent price even by visiting eBay and other such sites.  Ah, well, seek it out and if able to give it a listen, please do so.  We think you will enjoy it as much as do.  We still enjoy listening to this superlative CD as we know you will once you have slapped it into your CD player.  Enjoy.

  43. 1998 Wednesday: Jay Cochrane set a record for the longest blindfolded skywalk. He walked on a tightrope between the towers of the Flamingo Hilton in Las Vegas, with the towers being 600-feet apart.  Meanwhile the Israeli Cabinet ratified a land-got-peace agreement with the scumbag Palestinians who break every treaty they ever make with the Israelis.  Finally, President Bill Clinton ordered warships, planes, and troops to the Persian Gulf as he laid out his case for a possible attack on Iraq.  Iraq, meanwhile, showed no sign of backing down from its refusal to deal with U.N. weapons inspectors.
  44. 2004 Thursday: Palestinians at home and abroad wept, waved flags, and burned tires in an eruption of grief at news of the death of their thug leader, Yasser Arafat, in Paris at age 75. It is interesting to note that this POS member of the ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, died from HIV-AIDS.  What were you up to, Yasser?
  45. 2007 Sunday: General President Pervez Musharraf said Pakistan would stick to its January schedule for parliamentary elections but put no time limit on emergency rule.
  46. 2008 Tuesday: President George W. Bush marked his final Veterans Day as president at a New York pier, speaking to a crowd of thousands gathered for the rededication of the USS Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.
  47. 2010 Thursday: After suffering devastating losses in the mid-term elections, the Democrats are unclear as to the way forward. It is clear the American people are angry at the way the party went about pushing the Affordable Care Act through- even though a majority of Americans did not want socialized medicine- so now, the Dems must find people and groups to blame for their inadequacies.  Meanwhile, Starbucks announces that it’s going to expand by another 500 stores.
  48. 2011 Friday: Actor Kenan Thompson weds model Christine Evangeline on this date.

  50. 2013 Monday: In Nepal, an alliance of 33 different political parties join to orchestrate a general strike with which, to shut down the scheduled elections coming up on the 19th of November with the hope of stopping it.  Elsewhere, Iran and the United States blamed each other for the failure to reach agreement on a deal to limit Iran’s uranium enrichment in exchange for easing Western sanctions.    
  51. 2014 Tuesday: Diagnosed with Ebola on October 23rd, Dr. Craig Spencer leaves the hospital, cured. However, he had caused numerous fears across the United States because he came home from Western Africa, traveled to a variety of places while experiencing symptoms, so there was some concern the man had spread the virus to people in America.    
  52. 2015 Wednesday: In Kabul, Afghanistan, after ISIS beheads 7 hostages, thousands take to the streets to protest the violence outside scumbags are causing their country. Meanwhile, Kurdish forces in Iraq launch a major offensive against ISIS holding positions on Mt. Sinjar.  Aided by U.S. warplanes, they make good headway against the terrorist scum.  Meanwhile, to the horror of the EU, Sweden enacts new border rules to halt the flow of Middle Eastern, North African, and Sub-Saharan African refugees trying to storm their country.    Light ‘em up already! 
  53. 2016 Friday: As anti-Trump protests continue, hundreds across the nation ALLEGE race-motivated or sexual persuasion and other minority attacks have occurred in the aftermath of Tuesday’s election. Wah, wah, wah, this is all bullshit but it’s the strategy the Democratic-Socialists are employing to tarnish the loss of Hillary Clinton to an outside.   Oh, speaking of Hillary, she is still moaning and groaning about the loss, saying she ‘was robbed.’
  54. 2017 Saturday: Embattled U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore pushes back on the women claiming he sexually assaulted them or molested them. In the era of #MeToo, crazed leftists are trying to tar and feather their enemies as well as those they fear.  Judge Moore drives a spike of fear in many leftists and so they seek to take him out.  Hell, even George Takei of Star Trek fame finds himself on the list of the accused when a former male model named Scott R. Brunton relates a story from 1981 when he was sharing a drink with the actor in his apartment how he began feeling groggy and disoriented and next thing he knew, the Asian-American actor had his pants down and was trying to go for it.  Say it ain’t so, Mr. Sulu!
  55. 2018 Sunday: News reports show that since the summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, things may have worsened as satellite images show at least 16 new missile bases around the crumbling country. While they may not have much food, they have a whole lotta nukes and would love to use them.   Meanwhile, at events to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Great War’s end- World War I- European leaders criticize President Donald J. Trump’s new nationalism. 
  56. 2019 Monday: Bolivian President Evo Morales flees his country and seeks asylum in Mexico.  A military coup overthrew the corrupt left-wing Marxist the previous day and after resigning the post, he quickly departed the country.   Elsewhere, on Capitol Hill, Democrats announce that televised impeachment hearings will begin tomorrow over the perfect phone call President Donald J. Trump had with new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier in the year.
  57. 2020 Wednesday: Here we are, Election Day PLUS EIGHT- the state of Alaska is now in the win column of President Donald J. Trump.  That win follows hot on the heels of President Trump winning North Carolina yesterday.  In Georgia, breaking news in the race between U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler and her Democratic opponent, Raphael Warnock have shown that Warnock is a committed hardcore communist who supports all communist regimes such as Cuba, Venezuela, and other socialist hellholes around the globe.  This POS cannot win a seat in the U.S. Senate.   Speaking of the Peach State, state GOP leaders call for a comprehensive investigation into rampant voter fraud within their state.  We suspect that failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a big hand in the electoral shenanigans occurring in that DEEP RED STATE; look to her for answers.  Moreover, we think Senator David Purdue will win his run-off against pajama boy Jon Ossoff who has run before and lost.  Make sure ALL legal votes are tabulated. 
  58. 2020 Wednesday A: Yet another Democrat-held House seat is lost- thanks mostly to Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, AOC, and her whack-job Squad- as Democrat Harley Rouda who won in 2018 concedes to Asian-American Republican woman Michelle Steel. Steel won California’s 48th House District seat easily and although the Democrat clung to hopes that he might pull it out at the last moment, no one could find boxes of uncounted ballots in the trunks of Democratic staffers’ cars.   Gee whiz look harder…speaking of the Golden State, Proposition 15, a ballot proposition that would allow Democrats to raise taxes on virtually everything goes down in flames.  Also in California, Gavin Newsom’s oppressive authoritarian government is thinking of locking the state down once again, ostensibly over new cases of the Wuhan Flu.
  59. 2020 Wednesday B: Suddenly, the (Fake) News Media is crying about limited access to ‘President-elect’ Joe Biden.  The man stumbles out to the banks of microphones, mumbles a few words, looks right, and left to his handlers, and then bumbles off behind the curtains.  This is the senile POS YOU f**king Democrats and RINOS want to see in the White House.  WTF is wrong with you?  Meanwhile, as the U.S. Senate prepares to grill Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey over collusion to influence and throw elections to Democrats, the Biden campaign announces it’s going to have bigwigs from Google, Amazon.com, and Uber in the White House helping “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Yikes, the police state’s monitoring apparatus is being assembled before our eyes.     
  60. 2020 Wednesday C: We learn that the Pfizer COVID-19, aka the Chi-Com Virus, aka the Chi-Vi, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu is 90-percent or more effective and requires a two-shot dosage. Liberal Democrats are already talking stupid saying, ‘the United States should make the vaccine available to Third World s—hole countries first and then when it’s been given to the rest of the world, given to the American people.’  Shut up, you numb-nuts idiots, shut the hell up!
  61. 2020 Wednesday D: In the Pacific, Typhoon Vamco is preparing to slam into Luzon Island in the Philippines.  Citizens are being asked to flee coastal areas for their own protection.  Elsewhere, Australian Federal Police- the AFP- announce the arrests of 14 pedophiles in an ongoing child sex-trafficking and abuse scheme and have alerted other nations around the globe of their citizens who might be involved in this despicable ring of predators.  Lock ‘em up- for good. Meanwhile, riots continue from last night in Peru following yesterday’s impeachment and removal of President Martin Vizcarra over claims of ‘corruption’ from years ago.  The government hurriedly swears in Manuel Merino as the nation’s new president.   Finally, in Puerto Rico, election workers discover 180 BOXES FILLED WITH UNOPENED BALLOTS.  Sure, of course they did, and the Democrats expect us to believe everything is on the up-and-up.  Look- Joe Biden is NEVER going to be president, not now, not ever.      
  62. 2020 Wednesday E: CURRENT Electoral College count as projected by Newsmax shows 268 for President Donald J. Trump and 253 for “Pro-China Joe” Biden. More information continues coming to light that demonstrates the Dominion voting machines and systems used across the country are open to easy hacking which explains WHY- when coupled with Democratic Party operatives working on the ground to steal the election says we are witnessing one of the greatest election thefts in the history of the planet.  JOE BIDEN IS NOT OUR PRESIDENT AND HE WILL NEVER BE OUR PRESIDENT AND BY THE TIME THIS THING IS DONE, HE AND HIS FAMILY WILL BE ON TRIAL FOR TREASON. NOW we know WHY “Pro-China Joe” Biden was in his basement, the Chi-Coms via the Canadians had the FIX in for him.     
  63. 2020 Wednesday F: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 51,957,458 confirmed cases, UP by 682,861 cases, 1,281,309 confirmed deaths, UP by 12,110 deaths, and 33,785,432 confirmed recoveries, UP by 384,584 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 10,460,302 confirmed cases, UP by 148,941 new cases, 244,421 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,485 new deaths, and 5,830,401 confirmed recoveries, UP by 25,753 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 POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 321,235 confirmed cases, 2,699 confirmed deaths, and 310,061 confirmed recoveries. 
  64. 2020 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 996,903 confirmed cases, 18,083 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,193 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 126,822 confirmed cases, 2,595 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Pennsylvania, the home of VOTER THEFT AND FRAUD: 248,144 confirmed number of cases, 9,217 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Tom Wolf for concealing the number of recoveries- yet another left-wing liberal POS politician.   
  65. 2020 Wednesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,397.63, DOWN 23.97 points (-0.79%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,786.43, UP 232.57 points (+2.01%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,572.66, UP 27.13 points (+0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,865.40 per troy oz., +3.80 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $24.34 per troy ounce, +0.73 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $869.50 per troy oz, +1.40 (+0.16%) while the price of COPPER is $3.13 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,316.80 per troy oz, -154.60 (-6.26%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.76 per barrel, +0.31 (+0.75%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.62 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.45.
  66. 2020 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3507 with a $25 million jackpot on the line: 06, 07, 11, 29, 38, and Mega 23. The highest winner was one person with FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $34,183.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #793 with a jackpot of $152 million at stake: 13, 15, 17, 45, 63, and Powerball 13.  Highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,314 apiece.
  67. 2021 Thursday: Stick around to discover whatever the heck is going on today…

ENDNOTES:

[iii] We promoted the music of Country Joe and the Fish beginning on Tuesday, 16-July-2013 through Friday, 26-July-2013.  This was one of the greatest bands to explode out of San Francisco, California, during the Psychedelic 1960s.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012.  We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

[vii] So that people understand their history, the People’s Republic of China is the PHONY China, the government of Taiwan, aka the Republic of China, aka Nationalist China- is the legitimate ruler of ALL of China, the mainland, the islands, you name it, they own it.  They are free people whereas the mainland is a fascist-totalitarian state the represses human freedoms and imprisons millions of others.  FREE Tibet!  FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Macau!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Mainland China!  FREE Uighur Muslims!  Return to Two-China Policy, recognize Taiwan as the legitimate China.  Period.
