“JTF: Back in June, I began handicapping our choice of candidates, beginning with the dead weight who needed to go- let’s see how accurate I was” by Chef Roland Carl Davis
FALL SESSION 2019
BLOG POST #3,321 AT THE AICP-END
337 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020
Let’s see if I know what I’m talking about, shall we?
Arvin, CA 93203, 12-04-2019 Wednesday: Back in June, I invested a great deal of time in handicapping our potential nominees because someone has to do it and I felt obliged to be the one because I am among the strongest Democratic chef-authors here at the original American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day. I felt we had so many people all vying with one another that the sooner we cleared the dead weight the sooner we could select the perfect nominee, rally around behind him or her, and reclaim the White House which rightfully is ours.
Let us see who we had on the list of LOSERS, who they are and whether my predictions came true or soon will be. Ready? Good. Let’s go.
On Wednesday, June 19, 2019, I laid out the first list of losers, the people who needed to go. First was Andrew Yang, the Taiwan entrepreneur. I said he had to go because he has no chance at ever becoming secretary of sewers much less president. Well, Mr. Yang is still hanging on. Still, he needs to go because he is lucky if he gets more than one question per debate. A seal at the Morro Bay aquarium nabs more fish than this putz does questions.
Next, I listed Oprah’s best bud, Marianne Williamson. People tell me she is still there. The question is WHY- no one has seen or heard from her. With all the money of the Big “O” backing her, it’s not doing her much good. She should be gone by New Year’s- that’s what the crystals tell me…
Alas, I was wrong about two, two who are still there even though I said they should go. Let’s see who else I pointed out in that post who needed to go. Hmmm, I said Kirsten Gillibrand needed to go and lo and behold, she went. Thank God, what a horrible candidate. Thank God, again, for the fact that she has remained silent, I cannot stand it when that bleached blonde dimwit opens her mouth. Sort of like Jessica Tarlov sans the nasal quality to her voice but annoying just the same.
I said that Cory Booker should go because the guy’s a clown, makes everyone think of a black version of Jim Carrey’s “The Mask.” Why he is still there, I haven’t a clue but I must say, in the last debate, the weirdo seemed like he might possess the ghost of a chance as he made himself likable, something the others have difficulties doing.
I said that two of the Bozo governors, John Hickenlooper and Jay Inslee should go. They listened to me. Both are gone which is good, incredibly good, as they were sucking up oxygen that other candidates required for them to move ahead.
The final candidate I said should go in the June 19, 2019, blog post was Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke. He’s gone. Sooner than I thought but I am so glad he’s gone. Like Joe Biden talking about his leg hair, little kids sitting in his lap, and sucking his wife’s finger in front of a crowd, once we saw Beto getting his nose hair trimmed and his ear hair plucked, we ALL knew he needed to go. This ain’t “House of Cards,” folks, people do not move ahead via podcasts. Not even that Lolita from the Bronx.
The next day, June 20, 2019, I handicapped the rest of the candidates I felt had NO chance at winning the nomination nor should remain in the race because they are LOSERS. Here was the next group I said should be vaya con dios.
In that post, I said that Wayne Messam and Mike Gravel should go. Messam dropped out and no one knows for sure whether Gravel was ever truly in the race or was just blowing methane through his blowhole? Who cares as he never had any opportunity coming out of the great white north anyway, and at his age? Truly?
Then, I listed three congressional members who should be gone: Eric Swalwell, Seth Moulton, and Tim Ryan. All of them should go and lo and behold, they went. Swalwell was the first and thank God he left the race because that stupid putz is dumber than the gophers in my yard and worse, he looks like one of the underground rodents.
The other two, nice guys, I’m sure, how they ever thought they had a snowball’s chance in hell of winning the nomination was way beyond my pay grade and I own my own business and write my own check. Maybe next time.
The last guy on my loser list is shock of shocks to the millennials who are putting their hopes on because he’s a fruitcake is little Mayor Pete (no last name necessary). Look, any gay guy who compares being gay to being black is a LOSER. I also doubt the world is ready for the United States to trot out the mayor of a small, crime-ridden, Midwest town who’s gay either.
We are not ready for a small-town mayor because if we were, I would have chosen Mayor Messam of Miramar, Florida, before I EVER chose Mayor Pete. Yes, he’s a veteran but he seldom left the safety and comfort of the rear zone and if he did, I am sure he was highly protected. Tulsi Gabbard actually saw action whereas Mayor Pete was getting action only in the showers.
Now, I know people are going to hammer me but as a Democrat, I feel entitled to speak the truth to a generation of dummkopfs who have no clue whatsoever as to what it takes to be president. We do not celebrate or support identity politics, not people my age and if you want to slam me or critique me, go the f**k ahead, I could give a flying f**k.
I also mentioned Steve Bullock, Michael Bennett, and Bill Di Blasio. The first two are still around? I have no clue but the third POS is long gone as he should have been.
The 2020 Election is all about winning, not putting out the candidate that checks off the most boxes or crosses the most intersections. Bull crap, people, we need the best person to do the job and any punk who wants to drive out here to Arvin, California, and look me up, please do so and I will kick all your asses.
Tomorrow, we will pick up with those whom I believe can win this thing, like Mike Bloomberg. We will also look at Deval Patrick. Deval Patrick. He’s on the same level as Mike Gravel. No way in hell.

I began my career working as a pot washer at the age of 10, move to washing dishes in 1958, became a chef’s apprentice in 1961 and have been a career professional ever since. I am still involved in professional foodservice as a consultant for food and beverage professionals. Famed Bakersfield street artist Simone created the cartoonish figure of me, which appears to be ‘me’ but I hope I look better than how he portrayed me. You are the judge.

FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:
The Zombies, dead and buried, yet their record company put out the next of what would be the next of many compilation albums. “Featuring Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent,” came out on December 28, 1999 and it featured a succinct collection of 14 indispensable tracks, some of which appeared on singles as well as on their first two albums. While you might only find it on CD if you search the web, you sure as heck can find it on wax so visit your favorite record store and consider adding it to your collection- you will be you did.
SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:
Posted at the Wednesday, March 13, 2013 Blog Post:
Today’s Mothers of Invention album is their twentieth album, “You can’t do that on Stage anymore, Volume Four,” which appeared on record store shelves on June 14, 1991 and was the fourth installment in a series of the more dubious onstage antics of the Mothers of Invention. For those who love for what the Mothers once stood—X-rated, musical humor, this is a must-have series of albums and this is the first installment. We recommend that you take the link posted above, go to Amazon.com, and buy this album NOW. Thank you.
Posted @ the Saturday, October 04, 2014 Blog Post B:
Jimmy Page released his next solo album, “Playing up a Storm,” on June 14, 2011, an album that made the charts and showed that the artist still had a fire in his belly. Joining the extraordinary guitarist were Albert Lee (guitars/vocals), Nicky Hopkins (keyboards), John Paul Jones (bass/keyboards), Clem Cattini (drums), Chris Hughes (saxophones), and some other musicians to round out the sound. We encourage everyone to seek this one out by visiting the world’s greatest online marketplace, Amazon.com, and getting it there in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.
WE THANK OUR UNSEEN ARMY OF BENEFACTORS AND PATRONS WHO KEEP OUR TWO BLOGS UP-AND-RUNNING AND APPRECIATE THEIR HELP.

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

[ix] Syria has always been a problem in the control of the Assad Family and we have had to light them up on numerous occasions. They were scum then and remain scum to this day.

[xi] Although known as “The Deporter-in-Chief,” Barack Obama’s administration combined the numbers of those turned back at the southern border with apprehensions within the country, thereby deflating his record on deportations. Truthfully, he did as little as possible to protect illegal aliens. Shame on him.
