  52. 2017 Monday:  Many are speculating that President Donald J. Trump has defied the Deep State by ‘flipping’ Robert S. Mueller III, special counsel digging into ‘Trump-Russia collusion.’  The deeper Mueller and his team of anti-Trump hacks digs, the more they see Hillary Clinton implicated into dealing with the Russians by selling off a good portion of the nation’s uranium supply.  We shall see where this leads…
  53. 2018 Tuesday: Following Saudi Arabia’s murder of Saudi American journalist Jamal Khashoggi, President Trump announces he believes the Saudi’s version of events which leads RINO and Democratic Party anti-Trumpers to go berserk, outraged over his defending of a staunch Middle Eastern ally.  Speaking of Saudi Arabia, the human rights group, Save the Children,’ alleges that Saudi Arabia is responsible for the starvation deaths of at least 85,000 Yemeni children.  The Houthi rebels should stand down and quit trying to force the country to become pro-Iranian. 
  54. 2019 Wednesday: As the impeachment inquiry of President Donald J.

  55. 2020 Friday: Never-Trumpers are now worried that Trump Republicans of whom there are tens of millions won’t show up to vote for either Senator David Purdue or for Kelly Loeffler after blasting them as racists, haters, homophobes, bigots, Islamophobes, transphobes, scumbags, stupid, backwards, vile, and worthless, deplorable POS.  This is a tough one; however, YOU RINOS made your frigging bed, now sleep in the damned thing.  It appears that the Democrats are going to win so perhaps they should win.  IF you won’t support a president who has done all the things you claim to want and to support, then millions of Trump voters say, “Screw you.”  Time for a strong third party.
  56. 2020 Friday A: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin urges Congress to unlock $580 billion of unused COVID-19 stimulus relief monies to help the American people remain somewhat solvent.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization advises people NOT to use Remdesivir to treat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Like hydroxychloroquine, it seems to work extremely well in combatting the Chinese Virus yet the W.H.O. doesn’t want people using it.  Meanwhile, various state governors continue increasing their Chi Vi restrictions such as in California which now has a 10:00 P.M. to 5:00 A.M. curfew to stop the virus spread.  Is the virus only virulent between those hours?  Remains to be seen.  Finally, Georgia announces that “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris have won the state, the first time a Democrat has won the Peach State in 30 years, by a margin of 12,000 votes.  It is what it is…
  57. 2020 Friday B: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 57,369,049 confirmed cases, +929,805, 1,368,746, confirmed deaths, +15,971, and 36,706,250 confirmed recoveries, +415,170.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 11,934,455 confirmed cases, up 189,962 from yesterday’s reporting, 257,309 confirmed deaths, UP 1,919, and 6,155,250 confirmed recoveries, UP 31,386.  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: 1,087,464 confirmed cases, 18,573 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,917 confirmed cases, 223 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 145,255 confirmed cases, 2,723 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 327,049 confirmed cases, 2,742 confirmed deaths, and 315,930 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: South Carolina- currently, they have 203,161 confirmed cases, 4,231 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  It is what it is, it seems to be going against the norm to provide the recovery numbers; what is up with that?
  58. 2020 Friday C: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,263.48, DOWN 219.75 points (-0.75%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,858.97, DOWN 49.74 points (-0.42%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,557.54, DOWN 24.33 points (-0.68%).  Price of GOLD: $1,869.60 per troy oz., -2.80 (-0.15%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.22 per troy oz., -0.138 (-0.57%).  Price of PLATINUM: $952.40 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.50%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,340.90 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.19%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.29 per #, +0.002 (+0.06%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $42.47, +0.05 (+0.12%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.89 Afghan afghani. 
  59. 2020 Friday D: A mass shooting occurs at the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  At least eight people were shot but reports suggest none of the victims was in a life-threatening situation.  At least 75 police officers are scouring the area seeking the shooter.  The Milwaukee division of the FBI also is on scene to aid in any manner in which, the feds can.  Meanwhile, GOP Senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney say they will ‘vote’ to confirm ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s cabinet picks.  Elsewhere, a 2-1 ruling by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a ruling in the Florida city of Boca Raton and of Palm Beach County that prevents therapists from offering conversion therapy to children struggling with sexual orientation or gender confusion.  Good for them.
  60. 2020 Friday E: President Donald J. Trump announced today a dramatic lowering in the prices of prescription drugs.  The costs of insulin could be reduced by thousands of dollars per year which would benefit all diabetic patients enormously.  Elsewhere, efforts to recall California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom have been granted a 120-day extension until March 17, 2021.  Meanwhile, Harvard Law School professors sign a petition demanding any lawyer who did or continues doing work on behalf of President Donald J. Trump must go to a reeducation center so they can be cleansed.  Wow.  WTF is going on in the United States.  Finally, we learn that Democratic Party U.S. Senate candidate Jon Ossoff- seeking to oust Senator David Purdue- works for a Chi-Com owned company and derives his living from money paid to him by the Chinese Communist Party while his counterpart- Reverend Raphael Warnock- seeking the other U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Kelly Loeffler is an unapologetic black racist and communist.
  61. 2020 Friday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1609 with a jackpot of $198 million at stake: 26, 33, 45, 61, 68, and Mega 17.  The highest winners were 49 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $441 apiece.

Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.4b BBC 1967-1968 #81 06-17-2020 (400)

 

As usual, we miss some albums and then have to backtrack when presenting the music of a band such as Pink Floyd.  The album we have for you today is “Live at the BBC May 1967-December 1968,” a renowned collection of tunes if ever one existed.  You get 24 amazing cuts in one remarkable place.  Not only do you get recordings by the original group, you also get some as the quintet they became for a brief period.   The price is nice, the sound is fairly good, and if you are completists like the chef-authors at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day are, then you will want to own it as it’s only $25.  So what the heck?  Seek it out now and add it to your collection in the condition, format, and price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.
