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

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

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

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

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

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

We all hope and pray that the U.S. Secret Service is protecting President Donald J.

  55. 2006 Friday: Rep. Mark Foley, R-FL 16th congressional district, resigned his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives for doing some Democrats do all the time and seemingly get away with- sending inappropriate emails to a congressional page.  What a double standard but then, Republicans ALWAYS crucify their own.

  58. 2009 Tuesday: As Britain continues its national program of immunizing the hell out of everyone, a 14-year-old schoolgirl who died after being given an immunization for cervical cancer is found to have had a tumor in her heart and lungs.  What is it with forcing immunizations on everyone without checking their health situations?  Socialized medicine, folks, not good, never good, and something every sane nation must avoid.
  59. 2010 Wednesday: For the first time in two years, North and South Korea agree to hold working level military talks.  Elsewhere, in Dagestan, Russian troops get lucky and kill at least 14 Islamist militants in heavy fighting.  Good.  Cover the bodies with pig’s blood.
  60. 2011 Thursday: Houthi rebels continue fighting against Yemeni government troops in the northern part of the nation’s capital, Sana’a.  Elsewhere, Tehran hosts the 2011 Asian Men’s Volleyball Championship game with the home team- the Iranians- bitch-slapping the Chi-Coms with a final score of 3-1. Take that, communists!
  61. 2012 Saturday:  After the U.S. delists the Mujahedeen-e Khalq as a terrorist entity, Iran accuses the United States of having “double standards.”  Meanwhile, the Obama administration transfers a Gitmo detainee, Omar Khadr, to Canada where the murderous POS jihadist will complete his prison sentence.  
  62. 2013 Sunday: NASA’s newest delivery service, Orbital Sciences Corp.’s un-manned cargo spacecraft Cygnus, made its first-ever shipment to the International Space Station.  Elsewhere, some four-dozen people were shot to death at an agricultural college in Gujba, Nigeria, in an attacked blamed on the Muslim jihadists of Boko Haram.  Next, On This Day reports that a Syrian airstrike on the ISIS capital of Raqqa goes astray and hits a school killing at least 16 people and injuring numerous others.

  64. 2015 Tuesday:  American jazz composer and saxophonist Phil Woods dies at age 83.  Meanwhile, President Barack Hussein Obama announces that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin will convene on what to do in Syria.  We already know what to do: KILL the ISIS, al-Qaida, and Iranian Revolutionary Guard thugs.  ASAP!
  65. 2016 Thursday:  The U.S. Congress overrides the veto of President Barack Hussein Obama that will now allow U.S. citizens to sue Saudi Arabia over the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  Obama did not want people affected by the horrible attacks from suing the Islamic nation.  All but one of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia; go figure!

Trump’s secretary of health and human services amid investigations into his use of costly charter flights for official travel at taxpayer expense.  Meanwhile, Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, accused the Trump administration of “killing us with the inefficiency” after Hurricane Maria.  We must note that Mayor Cruz is a corrupt politician who was unable to distribute the vast resources that poured into the island following the storm.   Finally, the U.S. issues a no-travel warning to its citizens NOT to go to Cuba due to the ongoing sonic attacks on American citizens.  It also calls home some of the diplomatic staff in Havana thanks to the scurrilous behavior of the communist Cubans.
  67. 2018 Saturday: Tesla and its CEO, Elon Musk, agreed to pay $40 million to settle a government lawsuit alleging that Musk had duped investors with misleading statements about a proposed buyout of the company.   Elsewhere, some left-wing news sites report widespread demonstrations against center-right Brazilian businessman Jair Bolsonaro, the frontrunner in the presidential elections.  Go, Bolsonaro, go!

  69. 2020 Tuesday: A new PEW Poll shows that five percent of Trump and Biden voters MIGHT have their votes changed following tonight’s Round 1 2020 Presidential Debate in Cleveland, Ohio, depending upon who does better.  Meanwhile, Democratic Party presidential nominee “Pro-China Joe” Biden disputes he ever agreed to (1) a break after every 30 minutes and (2) that he agreed to an ear canal check to determine if either participant is wearing an ear device.  Many believe that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden cannot sustain 90 minutes of debate and that he will be seeking every avenue of support or escape.  Rush Limbaugh still speculates that something will arise that will permit “Pro-China Joe” a way out without losing face.  Dr. Jill going to come down with a sudden case of the CHI-VI?  We shall see.  Speaking of Cleveland, shop owners are boarding up windows and securing their facilities as the danger of violent mob ‘protests,’ i.e., out-of-control riots looms ever larger.  Another ‘anti-fascist group,’ Resist Fascism arrives in Cleveland ostensibly to fight against fascism but to serve as the Democratic Party’s Brown Shirts.
  70. 2020 Tuesday A: Judge Amy Coney Barrett arrives on Capitol Hill to begin meeting with lawmakers ahead of October 12 and the first day of confirmation hearings.  At least 6-8 Senate Democrats announce they won’t meet with her as a means of protest.  Meanwhile, New York City schools begin the reopening process as Mayor Bill Di Blasio continues to threaten JEWISH neighborhoods with complete shutdowns if they don’t toe the line and follow his orders.  Speaking of major cities such as New York City, we learn that since June of this year, violent crime rates have soared 53-percent over last year’s rates at the same time.  Clever work, Democrats, clever work.   Elsewhere, on the West Coast, major parts of Sonoma and Napa Counties are ablaze, once again thanks to rampant mismanagement by California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Like Nero, he continues fiddling, trying to find ways by which, he can continue funding CalPERS at the expense of caring for the state’s forests.  This man must be removed from office before 2022.  Now.
  71. 2020 Tuesday B: Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah dies at age 91.  Meanwhile, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson severs his ties with more than 95-percent of his fans by coming out and following communist China’s dictates and endorses the Biden-Harris 2020 ticket.  Rock- you are not only a sleazy opportunist, but you also appear to be a shill for Beijing.  NO MORE ROCK MOVIES! Meanwhile, attorney for Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn- Sidney Powell- updated President Trump on his former National Security Advisor’s case and asked that ‘he not pardon the general.’  She is trying to get Judge Emmet Sullivan to recuse himself from the case or accept the Justice Department’s recommendations to drop the collapsed case. Elsewhere, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe releases fabulous footage that shows ALLEGEDLY Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar!” Omar has operatives involved in ballot creation and ballot harvesting.  We hear from sources on the ground in Minnesota that she could very well lose her re-election bid.  Strip her of her citizenship and return her crooked butt to Somalia.
  72. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a whole– 33,484,120 confirmed cases, UP by 327,308 cases, 1,004,082 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,386 deaths, and 23,212,633 confirmed recoveries, UP by 251,197 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,229,559 confirmed cases, UP by 23,692 new cases, 208,335 confirmed deaths, UP by 217 new deaths, and 3,870,955 confirmed recoveries, UP by 7,882 new recoveries.

Trump for all the Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths when he is the one who sent COVID-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were. PUT CUOMO ON TRIAL! 
  74. 2020 Tuesday E: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 233,265 confirmed cases, 1,507 confirmed deaths, and 165,191 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the Chi-Com rockets the Hamas goons love firing at innocent Israelis.  We know you are prepared Mo!

  76. 2020 Tuesday G: National Security Director John Ratcliffe released information in a letter to Sen. Lindsey Graham- on the eve of testimony by fired FBI Director James Comey- that Hillary Clinton approved a plan with the Obama administration.  The illegal operation the two cooked up together sought to dirty 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump by tying him to Russian intelligence services.  The question is whether then Director Comey expended the same amount of effort investigating Hillary Clinton as he spent investigating then-candidate Trump, then president- elect Trump, and finally President Donald J. Trump.  Not looking good for the Obamaists coup plotters.  Is prison looming large on the horizon?   Join the Trump Third Term Movement NOW.
  77. 2020 Tuesday H: Regarding to Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, here is today’s Democratic Party’s and Fake News Media Attack Phrase of the Day: “Illegitimate.”
  78. 2020 Tuesday I: Tonight, is the first debate between presidential contenders, President Donald J. Trump, and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden.  About half-way through the ‘grudge match,’ it would appear that Mr. Biden is managing to survive the ongoing assault from the president.  Moderator Chris Wallace is struggling to maintain control.  We believe- at this junction- that Democrats will say the president is losing due to his belligerence while Republicans will say the president was aggressive and fending off both the former veep and the moderator. This update at 6:48 P.M.  What we will say is the following: it’s an UGLY affair, no-holds barred mud wrestling at its worst.   
  79. 2020 Tuesday I: Update @ 07:39 p.m.: what a rough 96-minute debate.  President Trump allowed the anger built up after 3.5 years to unload on a feeble Vice President Biden.  The former veep managed to remain upright but towards the end of the debate, he was looking a bit wasted.  We suspect the Democrat will cancel the other two debates.  Winner?  We think the president allowed his anger to get the better of him and the former vice president did not drop dead.  What an ugly mess…
  80. 2020 Tuesday J:  Telemundo, the Spanish language media giant released a poll from the first debate between President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President Joe R. Biden.  The poll says President Trump won by a 66-percent margin to 33-percent for Mr. Biden.  Wow.  You go, Spanish speakers!   We have no clue as to what mischief the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges will be up today but when we find out, you’ll find out so please, stay tuned for further developments such as the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu…

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 397,777 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 6,301 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

  86. 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 $4.397 per gallon, $3.057 in Florida, $4.074 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other Missouri: $2.853.  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- Israel: $7.709 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,819,205,239,855 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 Thailand, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75 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.
  87. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 188 for the famed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border from one legion after another of Third World illegal alien invaders and Day No. 95 since her sole visit anywhere NEAR the border.  Where is the esteemed ‘Border Czar?’  Ah, well, Texas border counties are preparing to hammer the Biden regime with a massive lawsuit over its lack of desire to enforce the laws and to defend the nation.  Most of these people living in these counties are Latinos who happen to vote Democrat.  Just saying.
  88. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Putin regime opens a new case against imprisoned Putin dissident, Alexei Navalny.  Meanwhile, North Korea claims the development of its new hypersonic missile is for DEFENSIVE needs rather than for offensive capabilities.  Next, we have some Chi-Com news for you today: first, there will be NO overseas visitors to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics which we hope no one sends athletes to due to the Chi-Coms infecting the entire world with the Xi Jinping Never-Ending Pandemic.  Secondly, the Chi-Com air force commander issued a veiled threat to the U.S. military: “Let us meet in the skies.”  Chi-Coms, shut the f**k up.
  89. 2021 Wednesday H: Health and Medical Alerts– A new poll says that 65-percent of Americans oppose loss of jobs for those opposed to submitting to COVID-19 vaccine mandates.  Agreed.  Another poll says that more than half of the American people do not really believe that current Chi-Vi vaccines are appropriate for children, especially those 5-11 years of age.  Meanwhile, GOP senators introduce the new TREAT Act designed to counter the rationing of the drug Regeneron by the Biden regime who is cutting supplies to Red States.
  90. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions and Authoritarianism News– Los Angeles County, California, is considering new rules/regulations for all customers going to bars and restaurants: they want COVID-19 vaccine passports or NO service.  Meanwhile, a judge in South Carolina slaps a temporary stay on enacting bans on the wearing of masks among school-aged children.  BIG GOVERNMENT wants to impose the wearing of masks on everyone.  Next, we learn that in the BIG SPENDING BILL the House speaker and her Democrat minions are promoting, there’s a big $700,000 fine for businesses NOT complying with the vaccine decrees.  Finally, the Kathy Hochul regime in New York is in the process of firing healthcare workers who did not meet the September 27, 2021, deadline to vaccinate or go on the public dole (which we believe will be cut off by government IF workers won’t vaccinate.  This is evil.  This is the Mark of the Beast and folks it looks like Joe Biden is indeed the Antitrump).

  96. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Mob mouthpiece White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to cover up for her missing-in-action, senile boss today by claiming the Three Stooges- Milley, McKenzie, and Austin- gave the dictator split opinions on what to do.  Jen, this in no way clears your boss; the man has NO clue as to what he is told much less as what to do.  Meanwhile, as the mainstream media- i.e., the fake news media- continues trying to cover for the botched Afghan withdrawal on behalf of the Biden regime, they, too, are taking increased incoming fire from across the country and around the world.  Embarrassing.
  97. 2021 Wednesday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The U.S. Department of Justice continues to aid the FALSE FLAG OPERATION conducted by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi by delaying the trials of the political prisoners scooped up on January 06, 2021, and in the immediate days and weeks following the set-up event.  They claim the delays are based upon ‘procedural issues.’  Oh, really?  Speaking of this sham subcommittee, the chairman and his thugs are sending out a flurry of subpoenas to former advisers and staffers of President Donald J. Trump.  They are attempting to make life as difficult as possible for these brave patriots.
  98. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Parents of imprisoned USMC Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller- who merely spoke his mind on the Afghan debacle- want both U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley to resign over their far too many failures while running the show on behalf of senile Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, at the hearing before the House Armed Services Committee today, the Three Stooges- Secretary Austin, Chairman Milley, and U.S. Central Command commander General McKenzie- were torn asunder by one Republican politician (with the exception of Liz Cheney who praised and defended the Three Stooges) for their failures connected to the withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Democrats did their best to circle the wagons around these three dunces but defending them proved to be impossible.  All three men must submit their resignations by the end of today.   Still, brave, patriotic souls such as Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, told the Three Stooges that ‘IF their commander in chief was NOT so out of it, all three of them would be FIRED.’  This led to angry Democrats apologizing to the three losers for the words of their conservative colleague.  Oh, wah, wah, wah!
  99. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News II– House Democrats continue trying to avert a federal government shutdown which- if it happens- will attach to them like the lips of a remora to the balls of a swimmer.  Thus, they are attempting to set up a vote with which to jack up the debt ceiling still more which will fall atop our children’s children’s children.  Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian leader of the House socialists, is doing her best to move forward with a vote on jacking up the debt ceiling.  In other shocking news, the Democrats now want to RAPE- i.e., TAX the retirement plans of the American people while providing all sorts of freebies to illegal aliens flooding into the United States.
  100. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News III– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is MORE outraged than ever after hearing Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley’s testimony than ever.’  All the man does is lie his ass off- Gen. Milley.  He’s a political general and nothing good ever happens to them.  Speaking of General Milley, he alluded to the fact that come spring of 2022, al-Qaida and the Taliban could commence new operations in the region.   Meanwhile, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN- a fighter if ever one existed- demanded that ‘transcripts between General Milley and his reporter pals must be produced to the Senate Armed Services Committee.’  General Milley also had to fend off attacks on him for having said that ‘Newsmax and The Epoch Times are akin to terrorists.’  Wow.  Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘he did NOT know about General Milley’s phone calls with his opposites in the Chinese Communist Party.’  We suspect NO one knew what this traitorous POS Milley was up to, friends.  Secretary Pompeo told journalist Megan Kelly that ‘NO one briefed him’ on this questionable action.

  102. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day I hope the Secret Service is maintaining a watchful eye on that big overweight bull dyke, “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney.  After all, she said, that ‘she will do anything to stop President Donald J. Trump from returning to the White House.”  That tells me she is crazy enough to stalk him and to take him out should he win the nomination in 2024 and/or win the White House later that fall.  Hatred like this only occurs on the left side of the aisle.  After all, they are the ones who now label MAGA supporters as ‘Nazis.’  Like Senator John McCain (good riddance), Liz Cheney is NO Republican even though she like he has/had an ‘R’ by their name.  No, Liz Cheney has drunk from the poisoned well of Jim Jones’ cyanide-laced Kool-Aid and her hatred grows for the 45th president grows more strident by the day.  Thankfully, her career- other than as a babbling head on MSNBC- is OVER.  The voters of Wyoming showed her the door by an electoral landslide of more than 30 points.  She is loser and will soon be gone.  Let us hope she realizes her time in the limelight is over and that she will sulk off into the D.C. swamp to enjoy whatever is left of her bitter life.  I just hope that the Secret Service is on the ball because this woman is a lunatic.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

  65. 2018 Friday: Following a meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee on whether to move the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, despite outgoing Arizona Senator Jeff Flake trying to stop it by joining Democrats in seeking a seventh FBI investigation by a body that we now know is very corrupt. Senator Flake says that without such an investigation, he will not vote for Judge Kavanaugh and could take other wafflers with him such as Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski and Maine Senator Susan Collins, both Republicans, who are looking for a way out of voting for the Judge.  What a mess. 
  66. 2019 Saturday: Hurricane Lorenzo- the largest Cat 5 storm to form in the eastern Atlantic ever builds up steam and heads for the Azores.  Even though it began to weaken, it still slammed into the islands with significant force on September 30 before weakening.   Elsewhere, tech genius and private space conquest pioneer Elon Musk unveils the next step in the SpaceX program- Starship- a craft designed to travel to Mars and across the Solar System and then to return to Earth.  Stunning!
  67. 2020 Monday: Democrats resurrected “Trump and his taxes” from 2016, claiming in a New York Times article yesterday that in 2016 and again in 2017, Donald Trump paid a mere $750 in federal income taxes.  We seem to recall back in 2012 when then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, leveled the charge against GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney that he ‘had not paid taxes in a decade.’  He said this on the floor of the Senate which protected him from any sort of legal repercussion.  This is what Democrats do.  Meanwhile, Guy Benson said on Fox News Channel today that “Pro-China Joe” Biden placed ‘lids’ on campaign events or interactions with the media 40-percent of all September.  Normally, Biden’s day ends around 9:00 a.m. East Coast time if not earlier.  Meanwhile, in Chicago over the weekend, at least 50 people were shot and about 9 killed.  Elsewhere, over the course of the weekend in Louisville, Kentucky, in response to the grand jury’s report on the shooting death of Breonna Tayler, dozens and dozens underwent arrest for violent mob activities.  Lock ‘em up!  
  68. 2020 Monday A: Saudi Arabia- hosting the G20 summit in November has decided to host it virtually thanks to the ongoing Chinese lab-engineered pandemic.  This year, the G20 has decided to set aside the collection of debt owed by the world’s developing countries due to the coronavirus.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms are angry once again, this time reneging on their pledge NOT to militarize the South China Sea because the United States continue pointing out that the communist Chinese are the number one destroyers of the global environment.  Beijing instead claims that the U.S. is the biggest threat to peace in the region as well as across the globe.  Friends, the Chi-Coms released the Chinese Virus- the dreaded Chi-Vi- on purpose.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 394,581 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 9,497 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xii]    Let us look at one other Minnesota: $3.039.  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- Denmark: $7.660 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,814,911,992,048 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Norway, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  80. 2021 Tuesday F: Illegal Aliens-Invaders-and- ‘Refugees’ News- The United States Coast Guard Commandant Karl Schultz says that the HAITIAN INVADERS are seizing the opportunity to flood into the United States.  U.S. Coast Guard assets are busy around the world and are unable to interdict vessels overloaded with HAITIAN INVADERS.  Meanwhile, they continue marching by the tens of thousands to the U.S.-Mexico border via the land bridge from South America through Central America, up through Mexico, and across the border and into the U.S. where the Democrats drop to their corrupt knees and welcome them.  We say, ‘militarize the border and begin using lead.  A few thousand dollars’ worth of lead and the invaders will cease coming.’
  81. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The United Kingdom is going to deploy military truck drivers to carry fuel to gas stations across the country.  Elsewhere, a new report says that employees of the World Health Organization took part in the rampant sexual abuse of the locals in the Congo during the Ebola virus crisis.  Meanwhile, North Korea gleefully announced the successful test fire of a new hypersonic intercontinental ballistic missile.
  82. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Recently, a Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical scientist spoke to an operative from Project Veritas.  A gentleman by the name of Justin Duran sounded the alarm on the POS J & J vaccine, one we have repeatedly warned against taking due to the impurities and fetal tissue from abortions being used in its manufacture.  He advised the undercover journalist to get vaccinated with a vaccine not manufactured by HIS company.  Ouch!
  83. 2021 Tuesday I:  Health and Medical Alerts– We learn today that antiviral drug Remdesivir effectively prevents COVID-19 avoiding a patient’s immune system.  Meanwhile, proven quack, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says he’s ‘hopeful’ that by the end of the month, BIG PHARMA will be ready to begin jabbing the arms of 5-11-year-olds with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  Speaking of the ‘boosters,’ Pfizer submits its trial data to the FDA for its new vaccine for the aforementioned 5-11-year-olds.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control is investigating an outbreak of salmonella virus with unknown origins.   Finally, the National Institute of Health, aka the NIH, says that ‘COVID-19 booster shots most likely will be offered to all.’
  84. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– New York City hospitals commence firing employees refusing to receive the Chi-Vi vaccine.  This will lead to an appalling loss of medical services and healthcare in the Big Apple and around the state.  This is insane.   Elsewhere, a new poll from Ipsos/Axios says that 53-percent of the American people distrust Joe Biden to provide accurate COVID-19 info.  (Note- speaking of Joe, where is that feeble POS today?  Did the ‘booster’ send him to the hospital?).
  85. 2021 Tuesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.04 (2) AstraZeneca $57.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $162.81 (4) BioNTech $276.52 (5) Moderna $384.21.  The push is on for everyone to get their third jab (if you’ve gotten the first two which most everyone we know has not) which means more taxpayer money will go to these companies to produce more vaccines for distribution around the world.  The BIG PHARMA companies will of course DONATE back to elected Democrats and RINOs.  Follow the money…
  86. 2021 Tuesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $86.84 (2) General Dynamics: $197.10 (3) Boeing: $218.41 (4) Lockheed Martin: $352.15 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $358.30.  Government has a big defense spending bill which means money will be sent to these companies who will then donate it back to elected Democrats.  Money-go-round, baby, the classic money-go-round.
  87. 2021 Tuesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $34.01 (2) DuPont: $69.05 (3) Honeywell: $214.97 (4) 3M: $180.05 (5) Teijen: $1,606.00.  Personal protective equipment companies are rolling in the bucks.  Follow the money.
  88. 2021 Tuesday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $107.36 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.00 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $20.50.  Beyond Meat shot way up.  Follow the money- especially as the Chi-Coms continue buying up U.S. farmland and food industries.  Is that not an issue of National Security?
  89. 2021 Tuesday O: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Amazon $3,315.96 (2) Costco Wholesale Corp: $447.35 (3) Wal-Mart $140.50 (4) Home Depot: $333.80 (5) Lowe’s: $205.43.  The government determines what is and what is NOT an essential business?  Do you think that government apparatchiks at all levels are NOT investing in these, and other companies like them?
  90. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News I– Left-wing protesters now target Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, over his refusal to support the regime’s $3.5 trillion spending bill.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate votes against the spending bill which causes liberals such as U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to prophesy ‘DOOM is coming via a government shutdown.’  She is demanding the Senate act by October 8, 2021, to stop a catastrophic federal government shutdown.  Oh, woe, people!  Senator Cynthia Lummis, R-WY, lit up Secretary Yellen over the new order demanding banks report ALL TRANSACTIONS over $600 to the Internal Revenue Service.  WTF!  Speaking of the spending bill, Dems are trying to insert into it a tax on single-use plastics just as they are amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.    
  91. 2021 Tuesday Q:  Political News II– Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues swearing his spending bill is going to cost ZERO dollars.  He also is applying pressure to Democrat leaders of House and Senate to pass his bogus bills that will jack up taxes to an oppressive level not seen since Jimmy Carter.  Anyone missing President Donald J. Trump yet?  We sure the heck are missing the 45th president.  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, had a town hall meeting at the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California, hosted by Newsmax’ Rob Schmitt.  Great town hall.
  92. 2021 Tuesday R:  Political News III– Today, the men responsible for the Afghan crisis- sans Joe Biden- testified before the Senate Armed Forces Committee- U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley, and commander of the United States Central Command General Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. sat and answered questions.  Rep. Mike Turner, R-OH 10th congressional district, told Newsmax that General Milley was ‘incredibly disingenuous in his testimony.’  When Senator Tom Cotton asked the agitated Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman as to whether he was going to resign or continue taking a paycheck, General Milley angrily said, “NO.  I’m not gonna resign.”  Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, said that after hearing the testimony of the three men that ‘Joe Biden must resign.’  Finally, Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says that Generals Milley and McKenzie’s testimony exposed the ‘lies of Joe Biden.’
  93. 2021 Tuesday S: Federal and State Court News– A shocking new report suggests that at least 131 federal judges sat on cases directly tied to their very own personal fiscal interests.  Imagine if these were Trump-appointed judges but we know they are not, they are liberal placements.  Meanwhile, a court in Texas ordered the immediate release of 220 illegal aliens into the hinterlands of the Lone Star State.  Why?  Elsewhere, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, is demanding more information from both the U.S. Department of Justice and the Biden regime in the case of the now-free Huawei CFO.
  94. 2021 Tuesday T: Miscellaneous News I– Native American groups are demanding that Joe Biden do something immediately to protect the Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah.  President Barack Hussein Obama created it via presidential proclamation on December 28, 2016.  When President Donald J. Trump was in the White House, he slashed the size of the monument by 85-percent and the Native Americans want it restored before those cuts take effect.
  95. 2021 Tuesday U: Business News– Ford Motor Co. is going to invest $11.4 billion to build three plants inside the United States with which to build electric batteries for use in its EV automobiles.  Meanwhile, in the era of mentally deficient Joe Biden, the price of an average home in the United States has shot up by a shocking 19.7-percent.  The American Dream is being torn from the fingers of young Americans.
  96. 2021 Tuesday V: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1698 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line: 18, 30, 43, 68, 69, and Mega 22.  Stay tuned for the results on the winners…
  97. 2021 Tuesday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Prosecutors around the country are dismissing cases due to an ever-increasing backlog of cases due to the Chi-Vi.  Meanwhile, accused Georgia sex spa shooter, self-confessed whoremonger Robert Aaron Long, the punk who carried out the massage parlor massacres last year, pleaded “NOT GUILTY” to four murders.
  98. 2022 Wednesday:  As you know, each of the contributors to this blog write on a six-month cycle more or less so when we pick up where we left half-a-year earlier, we are ALWAYS surprised at what’s going on around the country and across the world.  Everyone knows that Joe Biden is dumber than a box full of taro root, but the senility is even worse than anticipated.  Falling down the stairs, falling off his bike, walking around shaking the hands of ghosts, not knowing where to enter or exit a stage, it’s all very unsettling and downright frightening at times.  Then, we have his trusty Number 2, a person NO one seems to like, who is even dumber than he is.  She goes around in circles babbling about communities being in the community of communities, blah, blah, blah, this is what you get when a subpar chick sleeps her way up the ladder of politicians’ totem poles.  Granted, she was able to disguise her lack of smarts when she was a sitting U.S. senator whereas now, whenever we have the misfortune of seeing her on TV is extremely nauseating.  The Number 3- the Botox-drenched hag who runs the U.S. House of Representatives can hardly offer a coherent sentence at a time, sloshing her choppers around her mouth while she sucks on a lemon.  This is extremely unsettling.  However, if anyone becomes too critical about the collapse of the U.S. government, the Joestapo might come around, roust one out of bed, and then possibly disappear you in the middle of the night.  What has befallen our country, you might ask?  Believe in karma?  This is what happens when one STEALS AN ELECTION SO BLATANTLY THE ENTIRE WORLD KNOWS IT!  Oh, Lord, I had better prepare for the Joestapo to show up at six o’clock in the morning.  LOL.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

  58. 2018 Thursday: In the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, the accuser of Brett Kavanaugh- Dr. Christine Blasey Ford- sat before the committee members and laid out her allegations against Judge Kavanaugh with little emotion or credibility although the Democrats circled all around her proclaiming her to be a fantastic witness.  Then, when Judge Kavanaugh sat before them, he lambasted the Democrats on the committee for making it all about politics and for destroying his family.  In the end, the Judge appeared to be far more credible and produced evidence identifying his whereabouts on any given day.  The Democrats are causing problems once again and carried their attacks on the Judge to the next day during a committee vote to move the nomination to the full Senate.  Elsewhere, famed vocalist with the Jefferson Airplane[vi] and Jefferson Starship- Marty Balin- died on this date in Tampa Bay, Florida.  Marty was just 76 and had suffered a heart attack.  Following improper care after open heart surgery, he passed for good.
  59. 2019 Friday:  As the Democrats gear up for their impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump and the ‘hoped for crimes’ they believe he committed, the House issues its first subpoena to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. 
  60. 2020 Sunday: In New York City, Mayor Bill “I’m a Moron” Di Blasio- a man who wants to be an absolute dictator- threatens to close everything down- especially Jewish neighborhoods of Queens and Brooklyn- because according to him, these area businesses and private schools are spreading the Chi-Vi to everyone else in the city.  Meanwhile, Democratic presidential candidate “Pro-China Joe” Biden holds an extremely brief public appearance today in which, he bashed President Trump and his SCOTUS pick and mumbles something about ‘the last thing we need right now is the equivalent of a coup.’  He then takes four brief questions and goes off stage.  One thing the former vice president said in his speech about the SCOTUS pick is that ‘it’s unfair to millions of voters who have already cast their votes.’  You heard it straight from the jackass’ mouth: EARLY VOTING MUST STOP- it’s bogus.  When “Gropin’ Joe” answered questions, he urged GOP Senate members to do the ‘right thing’ when it comes to holding the vote for Amy Coney Barrett.  Meanwhile, Texas finds itself battling brain-eating amoebas in at least six counties.   Finally, dictator-for-life Xi Jinping brushes off criticism of ‘rampant human rights abuses’ and says the communist country is committed to making ‘good Chinese citizens out of the Uighur Muslims in western China and will continue forcing them to assimilate no matter what the other nations of the world say against them.’ Okay, Mr. Dictator, you are going to bulldoze them into becoming ‘good Chinese’ just as you have been doing to the Tibetan people since the late 1950s?  What a great country, one that observes human rights.  Yeah, right.
  61. 2020 Sunday A: The United Nations announces that the Houthi rebels and the Saudi-led coalition of anti-Iranian scumbags will conduct a prisoner swap of 1,000 or more prisoners.   There is hope that peace may be achieved and soon.  We suspect that as more Arab and Muslim nations begin recognizing the right of Israel to exist, the Iranian hegemony will begin to dwindle.  Meanwhile, Armenia and Azerbaijan engage in some border scuffles resulting in the loss of military vehicles and aircraft.    Finally, at the White House, President Donald J. Trump addresses reporters and asks the assembled hostile throng as to ‘WHY no one wants to know about the corruption of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his son, Hunter, when it comes to harvesting hundreds of millions of dollars from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and other leftist-Marxist global actors.’  News Media: HOW COME you don’t ask these questions?  Why did Hunter Biden receive $3.5 million from the wife of Moscow, Russia’s mayor?  For what?  His boudoir services- wow.

[xiii]       
  70. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.397 per gallon, $3.062 in Florida, $4.059 in Hawaii, and $3.855 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Michigan: $3.239.  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- Greece: $7.555 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,811,541,882,791 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after France, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Norway with $88 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.
  71. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News- As word of more and more crimes being committed by Afghan ‘refugees’ rushed into the country and rapidly dispersed around it by the Biden regime arise, Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-WI 7th congressional district, says ‘criminal activity among unvetted Afghans is predictable.’  Speaking of this criminal activity, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that ‘an unsecured Fort Bliss is unable to stop Afghan refugees and HAITIAN INVADERS from melting away into the local community and across the country.’  In other Afghan-related news, former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell says that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin must answer questions on WHY Bagram air base was abandoned and handed over to the Taliban.  The ‘Two Stooges’ will testify before the House tomorrow and then the Senate on Wednesday.  In other Afghan aftermath news, approximately 100 Americans and green card holders are set to leave the crumbling country.  (Note- Afghan barbers are NO longer permitted to cut men’s beards as that is not in keeping with their beloved ‘Prophet’).
  72. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Over the weekend, an unapologetic U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told left-wing journalists that ‘as many as 17,000 HAITIAN INVADERS have been seeded across the United States.’  Meanwhile, as we learn another invasion force of approximately 20,000-30,000 HAITIAN INVADERS are marching up from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald J. Trump took a direct verbal jab into the craggy face of senile Joe Biden by saying the “U.S. is the laughingstock of the globe.’  By the way- today is Day No. 186 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be monitoring the southern border and Day No. 93 since the one day she showed up to do her job.
  73. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Hospitals around the country are facing staffing shortages as ill-advised Chi-Vi vaccine mandates are willingly imposed across the country and nurses, technicians, and doctors refuse to take them.  Thus, we have a push in far too many towns, cities, and even states to bring in OUTSIDE healthcare workers to make up the shortages.  Of course, these noncitizens- like the ones pouring across the border- won’t have to provide proof of vaccination.  The Biden regime is destroying America’s healthcare system.
  74. 2021 Monday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.57 (2) AstraZeneca $58.72 (3) Johnson & Johnson $163.17 (4) BioNTech $307.09 (5) Moderna $408.84
  75. 2021 Monday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $87.34 (2) General Dynamics: $197.76 (3) Boeing: $224.16 (4) Lockheed Martin: $353.36 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $357.21.
  76. 2021 Monday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $34.65 (2) DuPont: $70.11 (3) Honeywell: $217.90 (4) 3M: $181.79 (5) Teijen: $1,626.00.

  78. 2021 Monday M: President Donald J. Trump News– A new Mackinac straw poll shows that among the GOP, President Donald J. Trump is a 2-to-1 favorite among likely voters.  Still, if you partake of online news exclusively, you will see that it is almost mirror opposite which is why you should receive your news- and commentary- from the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day.  You know where we’re coming from, and you can make up your mind for yourselves.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that HAITIAN INVADERS ‘are being released into the U.S. with NO vetting or checking.’  True, absolutely true.  Speaking of Trump, he had more than 20,000 people at his rally in Georgia on Saturday. How many fervent supporters would a slobbering Joe Biden attract?   Turd that he is, he couldn’t even attract flies.
  79. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– Dictator Joe Biden ordered Iran either to grant access to U.N. inspectors of its workshops or face disciplinary action in the IAEA- the International Atomic Energy Agency- of the United Nations.  Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reports that ‘Joe Biden lied about the cost of his ‘build back better’ agenda.’  No surprise to us- the man is a liar.  Still, his good buddy, Barack Hussein Obama, says he ‘supports taxing the rich to pay for the Biden agenda’ (because it’s the OBAMA agenda, folks).  Meanwhile, after mumbling a few words to the press, the senile groper in charge of the country sat down in a chair, rolled up a sleeve, and received a jab in his arm of what he claimed to be the Xi Jinping Bat Flu ‘booster shot.’  (Note- wouldn’t it be crazy if old Joe had an adverse reaction to this stuff and uh, went to the other side?  It’s not like he has any use any more other than to drum up sympathy so the Dems can really crack down on the American people.  Of course, we hope NOTHING happens to the poor old coot).
  80. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll says that Joe Biden’s numbers continue tanking what with 42-percent approving of his botched actions while 56-percent vociferously oppose his fascist actions.  In our learned view, Joe’s numbers are most likely 10-15 points LOWER than reported which means Americans of all political backgrounds and persuasions oppose this loser’s actions.  Add to that the fact that stumbling Joe Biden acknowledged that his agenda ‘may not be passed this week.’  Thank God, the American people are resisting.
  81. 2021 Monday P: U.S. House of Representatives News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has set September 30 as the day of the vote on the trillion dollar bills the Biden regime and “Mumbles” are trying to ramrod through both houses of Congress and onto senile Joe Biden’s desk.  Next, the House passed the Defense bill by a final vote of 316-113 (134 Republicans voting in favor) which includes forcing all American young women to register for the draft as their male counterparts do).   The spending bill is having problems as is the raising of the debt ceiling.
  82. 2021 Monday Q: U.S. Senate News I– The Senate Republicans are in lockstep against voting for the Democrats’ massive spending package, one that will cost the U.S. 5.3 million jobs and add another $3.5 trillion in overall debt to the American people.  As Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, tried to pass a temporary spending bill through, by a vote of 48-50, the bill went down to smoldering defeat.  “Cryin’ Chuck” was in a state of shock believing he had the necessary votes to pass this garbage bill through to fruition.
  83. 2021 Monday R: Popular Culture News– The Rolling Stones[xvii] have opened their North American tour and are paying homage to the late, great Charlie Watts, their drummer.  In other news, R & B singer R. Kelly found himself convicted in his sex trafficking case.  Will he go to the slammer, or will he be given a slap on the wrist?  Next, singer Rihanna has upset her fellow leftists by being seen wearing a t-shirt with the slogan, THINK WHILE IT’S STILL LEGAL” emblazoned across the front.  Good for you.
  84. 2021 Monday S: Sports News I– In tonight’s Monday Night Football matchup, the Eagles went to Dallas to play the Cowboys.  The Cowboys (2-1-0) clobbered the hapless Eagles (1-2-0) by a final score of 41-21.  Whoa.
  85. 2021 Monday T: Moron News I– After a big show last week of two ‘View’ hosts being yanked off the set prior to the arrival of “Kooky Kamala” Harris due to ‘positive COVID-19 tests,’ the two skanks returned to the show today.  Apparently, the tests were wrong as most of them seem to be.  It would be awesome if all of the skanks were struck dumb and unable to talk, especially Joy Behar and that stupid dingbat Sunny Hostin.  Talk about a moron!  (Note to Sunny- you don’t need to pancake the makeup on your face- look your age).  In other moron news, ultra-far-leftist Rep. Karen Bass, DS-CA 37th congressional district, announces she is ‘all in running for mayor of Los Angeles.’  Wow.
  86. 2021 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #890 with a jackpot of $545 million up for grabs: 21, 22, 39, 44, 60, and Power 12.  In California, out of 138,374 winning tickets in the tarnished Golden State, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $37,215 apiece.
  87. 2022 Tuesday: Observation of the Day There is a growing sentiment among Hawaii citizens that President Donald J. Trump is better for the nation than the head of cauliflower currently inhabiting the White House- fraudulently, I would say.  When Trump was president, many Aloha State voters fell victim to the negative spin the Democrats twirled before our eyes and ears about how bad he was (although I, your host, never believed that).  Now, under the control of the corrupt politician and his cronies running our nation, many voters in the state no longer believe it and that is why Democrats are crossing the Great Divide and becoming Republicans.  Friends, we are working hard to save our state and should you care to help us, make sure you to donate to the Hawaii GOP.  We would love to see President Donald J. Trump come to our beautiful island chain and hold a rally the likes of which has never been seen.  He could hold it Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on a Saturday night after the big swap meet.  It would be so ono.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0965 a 20” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Calistoga Cottage.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On February 19, 1994, Cheap Trick released their next live album, “Budokan II.”  This album features more of the tracks that were left off the original album.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

260. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2022

Back in early summer 1914, NO one anywhere around the world believed that an event in the far-away Balkans had the potential to spark a global catastrophe and yet by summer’s end, three-quarters of the globe was locked in the deadly embrace of war. Question is, does the conflict in Ukraine possess the same spark potential as did the assassination of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife, Sophie? Take out Putin NOW!

  63. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.

  73. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Rep. Dan Meuser, R-PA 9th congressional district, says the ‘GOP is going to get answers on this supposed ‘humanitarian aid’ to the Taliban.’  The Biden regime claims the ‘humanitarian aid of hundreds of millions of dollars was in the pipeline under President Donald J.

  76. 2021 Friday I: Health and Medical Alerts– The U.S. is going to allot $2.1 billion to infection control, meaning it’s going to give money to hospitals to help control infections.  Question: WHY weren’t you doing this already?  Sounds like another portion of the money-go-round.  Meanwhile, in another devastating blow to the Biden regime, by a vote of 16-2, the Food and Drug Administration rejects the call for a THIRD booster shot.  It recommends the need only for those most at risk due to age and/or health issues.

  81. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, that tomorrow’s ‘Justice for J6 Rally’ is going to be a setup.  We believe that tomorrow’s affair is going to be a “Mumbles” Pelosi setup what with loads of FBI informants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators, and that anyone who does not want to end up in the D.C. gulag with the other 400-plus poor souls would be wise to avoid the nation’s capital.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts one of the losers who voted to impeach him- retiring Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, RINO-OH 16th congressional district, by saying that the Rep.’s vote to impeach him was ‘very stupid.’  It was.  Look at what is happening to the losers who voted to impeach the 45th president.  One by one, they are losing support, becoming impotent, and will soon all be gone.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is weighing executive privilege in releasing documents related to President Donald J. Trump and the events of January 06, 2021.  Speaking of slobbering Joe, his approval ratings have imploded down to 44-percent- his lowest yet- which means in reality, the loser’s polls are nearer 34-30-percent than they are 44-percent.  Newsmax host Rob Finnerty says, ‘bye-bye Bide, the future we all knew was coming and didn’t want to admit.’ Meanwhile, in another slap to the feeble dictator, two large polluter nations were absent from Joe Biden’s follow-up climate summit.  Finally, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that ‘Joe Biden’s mandate regarding businesses forcing employees to get the Chi-Com vaccinations is divisive and that it undermines doctors.’
  83. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has interceded in the Purdue Pharma company settlement wanting to go after them some more.  In other Biden regime-related news, the impotent U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken deleted a tweet that said, “The U.S. stands with Hong Kong.”  Chi-Coms didn’t like that, eh?  Next- in something that sounds mighty unconstitutional to most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, the Biden regime is cutting off the supply of monoclonal antibodies to Red States.
  84. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Nineteen days after blowing up an Afghan ally of the United States and nine members of his family for being the ‘one’ who plotted and carried out the August 27, 2021, suicide bombing that killed 13 American servicemen-and-women, the Pentagon was forced to announce that it had erred taking ‘Taliban intel’ and blowing up this poor man and his family sight unseen.  Oooh, the mighty United States, whacking and stacking God knows who just as it did during the heady days of Obama-Biden.  Still, the Biden regime has better things to do- the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the way it holds ‘tranny prisoners’ in federal prisons.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Served papers yesterday while on a live radio program conducting an interview, famed political strategist Roger Stone said ‘there’s NO evidence supporting the lawsuit against him’ regarding U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the geriatric, nonagenarian leader of the House, and her claims of being behind the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  We believe you, Roger.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has okayed ‘100 National Guard troops to be on scene for the Saturday rally.’

  87. 2021 Friday T: Political News II– Axios reported today- to the dismay of the Biden regime- that under no circumstances will Senator Joe Manchin, D- W. VA, will vote ‘YES’ on the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Good.  Elsewhere, Arkansas senatorial candidate and U.S. Army veteran Jake Bequette says that the massive crowds attending college football games shows that the American people are ready to return to their lives.  The government had better pay attention to this. 
  88. 2021 Friday U: Political News III– Thirteen hardcore leftist Dems are pushing for expanded unemployment benefits in the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills.  Meanwhile, Health and Human Services tells Texas abortion providers, “We got your backs.”  Elsewhere, Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, D-MD 5th congressional district, says that the House will hold a vote so as to avoid imminent government default and subsequent shutdown.  Elsewhere, as mobs of illegal alien invaders swarm under the Del Rio, Texas, bridge, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that the “National Guard should be deployed to maintain order under and along that bridge as a swarm of 10,000 or more Haitian ‘asylum seekers’ mills about there.

Milley must face courts marshal for being a traitor.
  90. 2021 Friday W: Business News– Ford Motor Company claims the demand for its EV Ford 150 electric trucks is so great that they are going to invest $250 million to increase production and add another 450 jobs in three plants in Michigan to meet this incredible demand.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Tesla is going to work with regulators on data security, something of which, they seem to have problems.

  92. 2021 Friday Y: Big Tech News– Get this: the arbiter of what’s ‘true’ on the Internet, Google, and Apple, have removed imprisoned critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny’s ‘tactical voting app’ designed to mobilize the Russian people to fight back against the new communist dictator, Mr. Putin.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com intelligence gathering app- TikTok- has a new problem, the so-called ‘devious licks challenge’ that encourages American school-aged kids to break the law via vandalism.  Isn’t it about time we began nuking these sons of bitches?
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, the final Sears (and Roebuck) store- north of Chicago, Illinois- is set to close on November 14, 2021.  What a tragedy of mismanagement, not knowing its customers any longer, and being unable to morph with the times.  Sad, extremely sad, it did not have to happen.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: New York State News– Freshman Governor Kathy Hochul, D-NY, has given the people of her state a big gift: 191 freed inmates.  Meanwhile, three people went off on a New York City eatery host for requesting proof of vaccination before allowing them to enter.

  96. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– Campus Reform students sign a petition to abolish the U.S. Constitution because it’s racist, doesn’t recognize gays, trannys, and people of color.  In other ‘moron news,’ U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-12th congressional district, a person whom capitalism has benefitted immensely, jumped on the socialist train while overseas and says that ‘capitalism has not served the U.S. well.’
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Today, Los Angeles, California, was announced to be the ‘Bedbug capital of the United States.’  Now that’s a distinction that every town and city in the entire United States covets.  Wow. No wonder we no longer like going to the city of (Fallen) Angels.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1695 what with a $400 million jackpot on the line: 17, 32, 40, 59, 61, and Mega 18.  Out of 130,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,613 apiece.
  99. 2021 Saturday: Observation of the Day– This past Tuesday, Greta Van Susteren had John “Perpetual War” Bolton on her show on Newsmax and the two discussed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to tactical nukes on the battlefield in Ukraine.   Look, if Adolf Hitler had nukes in 1944 or 1945, he would have used them against Great Britain and Russia for sure and the against U.S. if he could have delivered them.  That little cave-dwelling, slope-headed cretin Vladimir Putin sure as heck does have nukes and if he is facing Armageddon, then so will his enemies.  He already has severed energy supplies to the stupid-assed Europeans who came to depend upon him the same way American leaders delivered our country into the pockets of Xi Jinping.  We could be on the cusp of a global catastrophe much like the world was in early summer 1914 because back then, NO one believed that a far-off conflict in Eastern Europe could envelop almost all of the world in its horrifying embrace.  Yet, by the end of the year, three-quarters of the world was involved in the worst bloodletting the globe had ever seen. Serbia is not that far away from Ukraine so it’s easy to see how just the right spark- like a strike on one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants- could be the spark of the End Times.  Let us pray that someone dispatches Vladimir Putin and soon so we can avoid just such an outcome.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick next delivered a four-tune EP on June 02, 1980, the acclaimed “Found All the Parts.”  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Being an extended play much like a double-sided single with two tunes on either side, the band provides some awesome tunes.  First, we have a cover of the Beatles’ “Day Tripper” followed by “Can’t Hold On” followed by two more tracks, “Such a Good Girl” and “Take Me, I’m Yours.”  You can seek this one out at your favorite site for music or you can purchase the extended version of tomorrow’s offering as it has all four of these tunes added as bonus tracks.  Either way, the decision rests with you and your pocketbook.  Enjoy.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

  51. 2011 Wednesday:  NASA reveals its Space Launch System plan, intended to replace the Space Shuttle program with its first flight scheduled for 2017.  Meanwhile, phony Native American Elizabeth Warren announces she will seek the Massachusetts senatorial seat held by Republican Scott Brown in 2012.
  52. 2012 Friday: Pope Benedict XVI (265th Roman Catholic Pope) visits Lebanon.  Meanwhile, the Japanese Coast Guard reports six Chinese Marine Surveillance ships sighted near the disputed Senkaku Islands; China claims the ‘two surveillance ship fleets’ are in waters around the islands for purposes of ‘patrols and law enforcement’.  Elsewhere, fury over an anti-Muslim short film (no one knew existed until President Obama pointed out in which ridicule of the ‘prophet’ Mohammad spread across the Muslim world, with deadly clashes near Western embassies in Tunisia and Sudan, an American fast-food restaurant set ablaze in Lebanon, and international peacekeepers attacked in the Sinai.  Thank you, President Obama, for stirring up violence and anti-American protests.
  53. 2014 Sunday: A North Korean court convicts 24-year-old Matthew Miller, one of three Americans currently held in that crazy nation, of unlawful entry into the country for spying and sentenced him to six years of hard labor.  These f**king North Koreans need to be nuked off the face of the planet along with their Chi-Com allies.
  54. 2015 Monday: In what many believe to have been a set-up event, Texas authorities arrest 14-year-old Ahmed “Clock Boy” Mohamed at his school following his presentation of his so-called ‘science project’ that looked suspiciously like a BOMB.  Being a Muslim, one would think he and his family would have done something else rather than present something appearing to be a BOMB.  Eventually, he would be released, both President Barack Hussein Obama and Facebook boy wonder Mark Zuckerberg sent supportive tweets.  Of course, the punk became the symbol of American intolerance and Islamophobia.  Where is he now?
  55. 2016 Wednesday: Imprisoned soldier Bradley Manning agrees to end his hunger strike when the U.S. military commits to his gender reassignment surgery thus making him Chelsea Manning.  This is the guy who helped WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange leak information on the Iraq War which embarrassed both the United States and current President Barack Hussein Obama.
  56. 2017 Thursday: In Dhi Qar Governorate in southern Iraq, two ISIS-directed terror attacks claim the lives of at least 60 people and wound countless others.  Wow, the religion of peace strikes again!
  57. 2018 Friday: In a statement released by the White House, U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denied an allegation of sexual misconduct (proven later to be fabricated by Democrats) from when he was in high school, saying, “I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”  He eventually made it through the harrowing process in which the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee and elsewhere in government slimed him and his family.  Democrats beware.
  58. 2019 Saturday:  Only with the help of Iranian Revolutionary Guard direction and cash, Houthi rebels in Yemen carry out a stunning attack on Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq Oil Refinery with the use of drones carrying explosives.  The Saudis were caught with their pants down, the attack eliminated half of the country’s oil production and about five percent of the world’s which immediately drives oil prices UP.  Time to whack the Iranians and to eliminate the Houthi scum as a threat.
  59. 2020 Monday: Here are the figures for the carnage in Chicago over the past weekend: 53 people shot and 10 killed.  Next, down in Florida, disgraced gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum, Democrat, caught in a hotel room with a male hooker and a crack pipe announced today that he is ‘bisexual.’  Okie dokie.   Speaking of Florida, Tropical Storm Sally, roiling off the west coast of Florida, is expected to be at hurricane strength when its expected landfall slams into Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.  Speaking of natural disasters, the out-of-control wildfires roaring through three western states have burned millions of acres.  The death toll currently is 24 in California, 10 in Oregon, and a toddler in Washington state.[vii]  “Pro-China Joe” Biden at his only campaign stop today in Wilmington, Delaware, blames President Trump for the catastrophe, calling him a ‘climate arsonist’ and noting that the United States faces four different calamities: (1) a crumbling economy; (2) a pandemic; (3) white supremacy/white privilege, and (4) out-of-control climate change for which, President Donald J. Trump bears responsibility for all.  Wow.  Meanwhile, in California, President Trump meets with the state’s leaders in Sacramento to discuss what must be done to help the state overcome the blazing forests.
  60. 2020 Monday A:  In Qatar, peace talks between the United States, the Afghani government, and the murderous Taliban continue.  Elsewhere, Politico reports that the Iranian regime is planning on assassinating U.S. ambassador to South Africa Lana Marks.  Let’s nuke Iran and get it over with, shall we?  Speaking of ambassadors, U.S. ambassador to communist China Terry Branstad announces he will be stepping down.  Branstad, as you all know, is the former governor of Iowa.  On the home front, liberal outrage continues to grow over President Trump’s MASSIVE rallies in Nevada the previous day in which, most were not wearing masks or socially distant from one another.  In response, the president called the gatherings, ‘peaceful protests.’  The Dems have no leg upon which to stand.  Speaking of Trump, national polls continue to show “Pro-China Joe” Biden cleaning Trump’s clock with an ‘insurmountable lead’ of 51-percent to 46-percent.  Elsewhere, Amazon.com announces it will be hiring another 100,000 workers so it can keep up with the demand for goods.  Employees will begin at $15 per hour. 
  61. 2020 Monday B:  Sadly, New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says this year’s Thanksgiving Day Macy’s parade will be VIRTUAL.  NASA reports that a sign of life exists in the atmosphere of Venus, the second-most inner planet of the Solar System, phosphine gas which corresponds with microorganisms that can live without oxygen such as at a sewage treatment plant.  It is interesting to note that between 33 to 38 miles above the surface of the inhospitable planet is found a region comparable to temperatures and pressures found on planet Earth.  Fascinating if this is true.  We shall see.  Folks, we believe life exists across the Universe, which places we consider to be inhospitable to human life can host other forms of life.  Elsewhere, Jesse Watters on the Fox News Channel’s “The Five” showed a clip of ghosts captured on the Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania.  We believe this to be true, too.

[xvi]   Let us look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.256.  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- Belgium: $6.765 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,761,525,602,885 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 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.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Rep. Mike McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, confirms the growing number of reports that the Taliban is executing loads of people in Afghanistan, especially those who worked with the U.S.-NATO-led coalition as well as Christians, women, children, gays, and anyone else they deem unfit to live in their Islamist paradise.  Rep. Bill Johnson, R-OH 6th congressional district, told Newsmax today that ‘Joe Biden’s team must apologize to the American people or admit that their boss is unfit to hold office.’   Still, the Biden regime pulled together Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Hussein Obama to go out and raise money to help the unvetted Afghan refugees pouring into the country.  Speaking of Afghanistan, security officials now claim that al-Qaida could reconstitute itself within two years.  What?  They have been there all along, folks.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 173 for the corrupt ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 80 since her sole visit to the border.  How sad.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Frequently on the wrong side of most things related to COVID-19, Dr. Ashish Jha says that ‘the FDA will likely show the need for Chi-Vi vaccine booster shots’ even as various countries around the world are saying there’s no need for booster shots.  (Note- see ‘follow the money’ below when it comes to vaccine manufacturing companies’ stock prices.  The Deep State apparatchiks and elected politicians all heavily invest in these companies, companies to which they direct billions of dollars).
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Even though more Americans are shying away from the questionable COVID-19 vaccines, the Biden regime is giving ALL federal employees until November 22 to get vaccinated or get terminated.  F**k you, Joe.  Resistance abounds however, as West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey, Republican, is working with sister states to resist the Biden regime’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates.   Ditto says Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX- who says RED STATES will challenge the authoritarian COVID-19 vaccine mandates.  Then, we have losers such as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci calling for ‘vaccine mandates for all air travel.’  However, a judge in New York says that ‘exceptions must be made for religious exemptions in the Empire State.’  That is going to drive them bat crap crazy.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.71 (2) AstraZeneca $55.96 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.80 (4) BioNTech $334.88 (5) Moderna $427.71.

Trump endorses Anna Paulina Luna for the seat left vacant by Charlie Crist, Florida’s 13th congressional district.  Once governor of the Sunshine State, Crist is going to take a run at “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis in November 2022.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News I– Liberals are celebrating senile Joe Biden after yesterday’s public appearance when he signed the cross after mentioning the name of President Donald J. Trump.  Then, senile Joe said that California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder is a ‘Trump clone.’  Yeah, we know, according to the Los Angeles Times, Larry Elder is the ‘black face of white supremacism.’  Balderdash!  In other news related to the usurper in the White House, USMC Recon Leader Chad Robichaux slams the loser in a new TV ad for his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The FBI has fired its lead investigator in the ‘plot’ to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer.  What’s up?  Too many FBI agents involved in this ‘scam abduction?’  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice has ordered scaling back on police chokeholds and ‘no-knock’ warrants.  The DOJ is also launching a civil rights probe into Peach State prisons.  My, my, my!
  83. : Political News I– Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to take on communist China instead of sitting around dithering in his Delaware basement.  Next, Newsmax’ White House reporter Emerald Robinson asked a question this morning which every American wants to know: WHO is shutting down the feed whenever slobbering Joe Biden begins to speak?  In fact, during his testimony before the U.S. Senate today, Senator Jim Risch, R-ID, asked Secretary “Bullshit” Blinken who has this authority which caused the startled secretary to hem and haw all over the place.
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News II– Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, says that the Biden regime’s planned tax hikes on the American people are going to hit them at the wrong time (not that tax hikes are ever good).   Rep. Drew Ferguson, R-GA 3rd congressional district, says the tax hikes will ‘leave businesses gutted.’ Speaking of taxes, the Internal Revenue Service is going to monitor ALL transactions over $600.00.  In other news that is no shock to us, former staffers of Rep. Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, accuse this hateful lefty of mistreatment and abuse.  Not surprising, folks, she seems like a ‘bi**h to us.
  85. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News III– Bob Woodward’s book, “Peril,” set for general release next week, is shocking the American people.  Mr. Woodward demonstrates what most Americans see as a coup against President Donald J. Trump after January 6, 2021, in which, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley got military leaders and CIA head Gina Haspel to swear allegiance to him in case they had to eject the rightful president from the White House.  He also contacted his Chi-Com counterpart to let the communist know that if Trump launched a war against the communist regime in his final days, i.e., a ‘wag the dog operation,’ he would let the Chi-Coms know before the first bombs began falling.  This is HIGH TREASON folks and General Milley must meet his end atop the gallows.  
  86. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News IV– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says he will ‘filibuster any attempt by the Biden regime to raise the debt ceiling.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Paul Gosar, R-AZ 4th congressional district, produced a genius idea today: ALL House leaders should wear body cameras so that more transparency and honesty can be achieved.  Great idea, Congressman.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, is making his far-left colleagues go insane.  He continues to claim that he will NOT support his party’s $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.’  This has people like Senator Bernie Sanders and losers such as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez going after him tooth and nail.  Wow.  Finally, it appears that Vice President Mike Pence is preparing to run in 2024.  Huh?
  87. 2021 Tuesday U: U.S. Senate News I– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken sat before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today to answer questions from the lawmakers.  U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was asked to come but refused the invitation.  A nonplused Senator Bob “Cho-Mo” Menendez, DS-NJ, and committee chairman threatened he might send Secretary Austin a subpoena.
  88. 2021 Tuesday V: Social Media News– Following the brave tweets launched by entertainer Nikki Minaj blowing the lid off the COVID-19 vaccine crap, Twitter would not bow down to the demands by people such as noted racist Joy “Pro-Democracy” Reid and other losers such as she by saying her tweets did not violate their rules.   Good.  Free speech is NEVER wrong.  We are not living in George Orwell’s world yet.  In other social media news, attacks on brain-dead liberal Democrats- maskless ones at that- who attended last night’s Met affair are going viral, especially after Sandy “The Fly” Cortez wore a $35,000 dress that said ‘tax the rich’ on her backside at the $30,000 per plate event.  What a bunch of losers.
  89. 2021 Tuesday W: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Liberals are dancing in the streets: conservative radio talk show host, Bob Enyart of Denver, who stood against the Chi-Vi vaccines has reportedly died from the Chi-Vi.  Liberals love stuff like this the sick f**ks.
  90. 2021 Tuesday X: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– WOKE sissies in California are going to rename world famous ski resort Squaw Valley to something else that won’t offend Injuns.  Wow.  Bet they feel REAL GOOD.  (Note- how about doing something good for the long-suffering people of the state like stamping out crime, ending homelessness, handing illegal aliens over to ICE for deportation, clearcutting the forests, getting back to water infrastructure, and fixing the streets?  Nope.  All California wants to do is to be WOKE).  Meanwhile, attention ALL lefties out there: the University of Nebraska is going to offer a minor in ‘racial justice, equity, and inclusion.’  Boy, they will be lining up for that sham degree.
  91. 2021 Tuesday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1694 what with a $383 million jackpot on the line: 04, 13, 19, 63, 64, and Mega 16.  Out of 114,572 winning tickets, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,355 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday Z: The Wrap-Up– It appears that the downtrodden people of California voted in favor of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to finish his term and thus run for a second term next year.  The results were almost instantaneous tonight what with tens of thousands of reports of people’s votes already being cast for them.  Wow.
  93. 2022 Wednesday: Observation of the Day- I find it absolutely mind-blowing that people still listen to what the media says when it comes to polling and the chances of electoral victory for Republicans.  I hate to be a downer for the Dems but I suspect the United States Senate is going to swing hard to the right and the Dems are going to be wailing like the scum they are.  I think every contest in which, Republicans are competing with Dems in this year’s election cycle when it comes to the U.S. Senate are swinging our way.  Raiding President Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and the horrifyingly stupid and evil speech ‘Slobbering Joe’ Biden gave before a backlit red wall are becoming the final daggers in their socialist chests.  Likewise, I expect the House is going to swing our way as why would that crotchety bag of bones, over-Botox-ed Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi be floating the idea that she wants to become U.S. ambassador to Italy?  She sees the writing on the wall, and she understands that she and her lunatic left-wing socialist allies have once again overplayed their hands and are facing Armageddon in less than two months.  It is going to be glorious, and I can’t wait to dance on their political graves.  Let’s vote these bottom-feeding reprobates out of office in one big bloodletting.  Hey, Mitch McConnell- how about getting on board with the oncoming tidal wave?  What do YOU think- Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Working like rock-and-roll madmen, Cheap Trick returned with their tertiary effort, “Heaven Tonight” which continued to drive the band up the rock and roll charts.  The lineup featured the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Unlike many bands of the period, Cheap Trick combined some of the hardest and occasionally darkest rock-and-roll chops with some pop music peaks.  Thus we have the radio classic, “Surrender,” that one continues hearing to this day on radio stations as well as the dark title track.  We also have “California Man” and “Oh, Claire,” the last of which is a ‘hidden track’ on the album.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

243. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2022

As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November. I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters. When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM! INSURRECTIONISTS! REVOLUTIONARIES! WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”

Trump’s former political advisor had his first day in court with three of his fellow sycophants and pled ‘not guilty’ to charges the quartet defrauded donors into providing money to help build the wall along our border with Mexico.  Elsewhere, the D.C.

  66. 2020 Monday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 25,051,178 confirmed cases, +212,258, 843,586 confirmed deaths, +3,335, and 16,451,018 confirmed recoveries, +142,323.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,081,372 confirmed cases, UP by 23,852 new cases, 185,870 confirmed deaths, UP by 333 new deaths, and 3,202,457 confirmed recoveries, UP by 6,091 new recoveries.   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: 699,909 confirmed cases, 12,905 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. 
  67. 2020 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics- here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,339 confirmed cases, 63 confirmed deaths, and 2,520 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 74,320 confirmed cases, 1,905 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  NOTE: COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death in the United States.  The estimated hit to U.S. tourism and travel industries as of today rests at $51.5 billion.  The Chi-Coms have much to make restitution.

DOWN -0.90 (-0.10%), and COPPER is at $3.05 # -0.01 (-0.33%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.82, UP +0.21 (+0.49%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.85 Chi-Com yuan.  In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  69. 2020 Monday D: Today, history occurred as El Al Flight 971 lifted off from Jerusalem and three-and-a-half hours later touched down in the United Arab Emirates, the first flight ever to do so.  The aircraft carried loads of dignitaries and the underside of the jetliner bristled with anti-missile defenses.  This is a momentous day for the entire world although the Palestinians continue running amok in the Gaza Strip, trying to initiate yet another war with the world’s sole Jewish state.  Shame on them.
  70. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 218,540,994 confirmed cases, +674,190, 4,533,609 confirmed deaths, +10,669 and 195,365,126 confirmed recoveries, +652,872.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 40,114,099 confirmed cases, UP 168,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 657,910 confirmed deaths, UP 1,533, [xii] and 31,020,612 confirmed recoveries, UP 80,403.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 339,222 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 64,886 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  72. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,366,577 confirmed cases, 65,885 confirmed deaths, and 2,284,613 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,295,993 confirmed cases, 44,561 confirmed deaths, and 2,342,929 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 63,502 confirmed cases, 589 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 565,013 confirmed cases, 6,643 confirmed deaths, and 246,247 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., District of Columbia: they have 55,431 confirmed cases, 1,160 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

[xix]        
  75. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.398 per gallon, $2.983 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.898 in Washington state. [xx]    Let us look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.994.  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- Seychelles: $5.950 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,707,520,165,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxii]  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 Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 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.
  76. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Following on the heels of the last flight of Americans out of Hamid Karzai International Airport today, the Taliban moved in quickly upon our heels dressed in U.S. camo and using U.S. weapons.  We have left behind perhaps 15,000-20,000 Americans while the bogus regime inhabiting the White House claims the numbers are closer to 100 to 200.  Bulls**t.  Pentagon spokesperson Admiral John Kirby says the U.S. ‘will use leverage to bring trapped Americans home.’  We also left behind all of our military dogs to suffer horrendous fates at the hands of the barbarous Mohammedans who also are going to door to door executing anyone they deem to be enemies or threats to their criminal regime.   What is becoming clearer by the moment is that even though the war is ‘now over,’ Joe Biden’s Afghan crisis is only just beginning.  Take for example, new video showing the Taliban escorting- openly- Osama bin Laden’s former security chief, Dr. Amin al-Haq, an al-Qaida thug.  And the Biden regime says there is NO al-Qaida in the Afghan boonies.  Finally, new reports suggest that during a phone call in June, neither slobbering Joe Biden or Afghan President Ashraf Ghani anticipated the sudden collapse of the country.
  77. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, with the usurper regime in the White House, everything is going to hell.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 160 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle on the southern border and Day No. 67 since her sole visit to th southern border.  What a loser.  Ah, well, the Cost this Day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens is $521,296,416.  Next, the cost of caring for this tsunami of Third World flesh is $265,726,853,120.  As for the numbers of illegal alien vermin who have crossed the southern border this year, here is the appalling figure for the numbers who managed to cross into the United States: 2,723,487.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens sucking away at the American taxpayers’ teat: 36,723,488.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- since the inception of this blog back in 2009, we believed the numbers of illegal alien vermin in the U.S. to have been between 35-50 million whereas now- 12 years later- we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport all of them.  NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Ireland announces that it will be dropping almost all COVID-19 restrictions in their country by October all the while Australia continues tightening the screws on its citizens.  The military goes door to door to check on whether its citizens are cowering behind their doors as well as checks on citizens’ individual QR codes to make sure they are following the government’s dictates.  WTF?  In another country seemingly freer than Australia, Vladimir Putin is approving special payments to military and law enforcement personnel ahead of upcoming elections (just like U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is doing for federal employees in America).
  79. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– In other foreign and overseas news, the People’s Republic of China has restricted young people under the age of 18 no more than 3 hours per week playing video games.  Beijing also shut down the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Chengdu, probably because it is pushing the LGBTQIA+ agenda which should get any organization closed down.
  80. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– In an effort to destroy “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, a ‘report’ suggests that death rates in the Sunshine State due to COVID-19 somehow are artificially low.  Elsewhere, another report says that Alaska and Utah have low COVID-19-related deaths.   Meanwhile, an Axios/Ipsos poll says that ‘it appears vaccine hesitancy is waning’ around the nation.  Uh, okay.  NO, no it’s not.
  81. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that he is ‘confident a judge will rule in favor of his ban on the required wearing of masks in Florida’s school systems.  Elsewhere, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, has been accused of violating New Mexico’s mask mandate on a recent visit to the Cactus State.  Liberal hypocrisy?  No, it couldn’t be.  Meanwhile, the Manhattan D.A. charges 15 in a fake COVID-19 vaccine passport scheme.
  82. 2021 Tuesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.07 (2) AstraZeneca $58.28 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.13 (4) BioNTech $329.19 (5) Moderna $376.69.  Follow the money.  Politicians and the Deep State are invested BIG TIME in vaccine manufacturers.
  83. 2021 Tuesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.76 (2) General Dynamics: $200.31 (3) Boeing: $219.50 (4) Lockheed Martin: $359.80 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.70.  Same as above, the Deep State and politicos are invested heavily in the dogs of war.
  84. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden News I– Early this morning, we were promised that faux president Joe Biden would give a statement on the debacle in Afghanistan to the American people.  When he did finally show up, he was agitated and angrier than ever.  The White House must have gotten some of son Hunter’s crack and had old Joe smoke a few bowls before he walked glassy eyed to the microphones and lit into the American people.  (Note- Joe, STFU about your son, Beau Biden, he did NOT die in combat, he was not shot, he was not blown up, and he was not maimed; no, he died from brain cancer from being around too many burn-pits in-country.  You cannot relate with anyone who has lost a loved one in combat.  Enough!).  The old fool also praised the success of the ‘airlift’ and the ‘end of the forever war.’  Speaking of this man’s failure, the Flag Officers 4 America- more than 87-plus former U.S. military officers- sent a letter to “Taliban Joe” Biden demanding the resignations of U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and political hack Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley over failing to advise Joe Biden of the disastrous consequences resulting from his baffling pull-out from Afghanistan.  (Note- Gen. Milley, being the POS that you are and an uneducated one, IF you ever wish someone to explain to you the truth behind the three-fifths clause, we would love to sit down and explain it to your stupid ass.  Also, you must pay heed as to what happens to ‘political generals,’ i.e., General Alfred Jodl and Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel at the end of World War II).  
  85. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News II– The father of a U.S. Marine killed in last Thursday’s terror attack at HKIA- Mark Schmitz- said that when he met Joe Biden at Dover when the bodies of his son and 12 others arrived home on U.S. soil, Mr. Biden ‘bristled’ when told to learn the stories of the dead.  Joe went on about son, Beau, and said little to nothing to comfort the grieving families and instead looked at his watch to see when he could return to the White House basement to watch reruns of “Dragnet” and “Murder She Wrote.”   Joe also claims he is committed to getting ‘the last 100-200 Americans out of Afghanistan.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Fox News had the balls to report today that during a press conference with FEMA regarding Hurricane Ida relief, when he called forward one of his senior advisers, former Rep. Cedric Richmond, the racist faux president referred to him as “BOY.”  Since Mr. Richmond happens to be black, one would think that the besotted old fool who claims to be president would have ignited a firestorm but oh, no, apparently not.  Here is what the senile codger said: “I’m here with my senior adviser and BOY who knows Louisiana very, very well, and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond.” [xxiii]
  87. : Joe Biden Regime News I– Ahead of a White House visit, the U.S. commits to $60 million in foreign aid to the Ukraine.  Next, U.S. State Department staffers are assailing Secretary Anthony Blinken over the need to terminate one of their own- Fritz Berggren who runs a website, bloodandfaith.com- where he blasts Jews, homos and trannys, and other left-wing riffraff.  Hey, staffers: stop sniveling.  You guys get away with all sorts of stuff so shut the hell up.  Elsewhere, Health and Human Services- HHS- says it’s going to open a division committed to combatting ‘climate change.’  Spare us the crap.
  88. 2021 Tuesday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– In other political news, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says- regarding the bogus January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots panel in the U.S. House of Representatives that is demanding BIG TECH to hand over all data related to the GOP and others who were there on that day- that ‘this is America and the people will remember’ if BIG TECH complies with the Democratic-Socialists’ requests. 
  89. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News I– Eric Trump told Newsmax today that the nation ‘demands a refund for the debacle in Afghanistan.’  We left billions of dollars in equipment there as well as billions of dollars more for the criminal regime currently inhabiting the country.   Next, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that Afghanistan is a ‘jaw-dropping, abysmal failure.’  Amen.  Moving on, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th CD, says that ‘Americans are now fending for themselves’ in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd CD, puts most of the blame for the Afghan debacle atop the shoulders of ‘Taliban Joe’ Biden, National Security Adviser Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan, and the increasingly pathetic, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Sell-Out” Blinken.  Finally, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th CD, says that ‘whenever the Biden regime sends Anthony Blinken to the microphone banks, it’s to LIE to the American people.’  Amen, Rep., amen.  Rep. Mast also has said that the ‘White House has doubled down on stupid with the Taliban.’  Finally, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says the “U.S. is going to fund terrorism against itself.”
  90. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News II– Anger continues to grow across the United States at CRT in the schools- what WE call truthfully ‘Criminal Race Theory’ and what the leftist scumbags label ‘Critical Race Theory.’  This crap is as evil as is Marxism and Nazism and must be destroyed.  Anyone promoting this crap must be stripped of their job and sent into the hinterlands to become reeducated.
  91. 2021 Tuesday U: Economic News– Thanks to the COVID-19 crisis, U.S. home prices during the month of June soared to their highest point in years.  (Note- the reason for higher prices is the scarcity thanks to big banks and Chinese companies snapping up homes in mass.  Not good.
  92. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– The murderer of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- received a sentence of life in prison today as well as having to pay restitution for his barbaric crime.  Execute him.  Another condemned murderer set to die on September 8, 2021, via lethal injection in Texas- 37-year-old John Henry Ramirez- is suing to have the right to have his pastor lay hands on him as he undergoes execution.
  93. 2021 Tuesday W: Social Media News– Another mother who lost her son at HKIA last week saw Instagram shutter account over emotional posts she shared following the death of her child.  When blasted for doing it, Instagram said ‘they made a mistake and had NO clue as to how such an outrageous incident occurred.’  Sure, uh-huh.  F— you.
  94. 2021 Tuesday X: Weather News I– Following Hurricane Ida slamming the gulf coast, thousands in Louisiana are facing weeks- if not months- of NO electricity.  We recall that when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, he had everything ready and waiting to rush in and begin the process of restoring power as soon as the storms passed.  What the hell is up with the Biden regime?
  95. 2021 Tuesday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1690 what with a $306 million jackpot on the line: 08, 14, 31, 58, 68, and Mega 15.  Out of 105,850 winning tickets, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,621.
  96. 2022 Wednesday: As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November.  I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters.  When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM!  INSURRECTIONISTS!  REVOLUTIONARIES!  WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”  It will allow the Biden White House to DECLARE MARTIAL LAW, LOCK DOWN THE ELECTION CYCLE, KEEP EVERYONE IN THEIR HOMES, AND FORCE THEM TO USE MAIL-IN BALLOTS which, we the Democratic Party OWN.  If everyone has to vote by mail, we are going to pull our irons out of the fire and save the election cycle.  IF we can’t get Trump voters to run amok, we will send our Antifa and BLM goons out into the streets, give them CSA and Nazi flags and have them run amok.  It’s a cinch. Trump will be indicted but will NEVER go to trial until October 2024 and we will win that election cycle, too.  Man, oh, man, are we smart.  This is the plan, it’s going to work, and Dems are going to WIN and WIN BIG.  Especially when our media spews the myth that the RED WAVE is dying, and the BLUE WAVE is going to crush EVERYONE.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0938 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Rancho Santa Margarita.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys is one to be expected: “The Beach Boys with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra” (June 08, 2018).  There are 17 tunes here featuring Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson along with Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Al Jardine, and David Marks.  Most every band that has survived- or whose record catalog has survived- has had remix albums with orchestras so why would the Beach Boys be any different?  While some criticize the album, others praise it which is what we do being the completists that we are.  Besides- if you’ve purchased everything else, why would you spurn this effort?  It does not cost that much so pick it up much like you would (or did) “Metamorphosis” or “Jamming with Edward” by the Rolling Stones.  We think you will enjoy but if not, perhaps your aging mother or father will.  After all, they are most likely Beach Boys fans.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[ii] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[iii] Shavers won the vacant Nevada state heavyweight title on September 28, 1971.  However, Earnie lost his two big-time title fights, the first to Muhammad Ali on September 29, 1977, via a 15-round unanimous decision.  He fought to win the WBA, WBC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight titles.  The second shot was against Larry Holmes, aka the Easton Assassin, on September 28, 1979.  Holmes held the WBC heavyweight title of the world.  Holmes beat Shavers via a TKO at the 2:00 minute mark of Round 11 in a scheduled 15-round heavyweight bout.  There would be no future shots at any of the belts.

[iv] We hope to begin promoting the music of Them and of Van Morrison at some point in the near future.  Please remain alert for the day when we do.

[v] We shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies beginning on Thursday, 25-November-2010 through Sunday, 02-January-2011.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy.

[vi] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Firefall sometime in 2026.  Please stay tuned.

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

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

[x] We began promoting the music of the Move- and of Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne- beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

[xi] More and more Americans now believe that President Barack Hussein Obama was the first phony president as it has become clearer that he was NOT born in the United States but in Kenya.  This would explain the actions of the Democrats back in 2009 when they began to go down the totalitarian roadway.  Look at them now.
