The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day
Original Beverly Carrick Artworks, Beverly Carrick—World Famous Artist, Dave Walker, Savoy Brown, Vice President Charles Curtis, John Staehely, Jo Jo Gunne, Matt Andes, Just the Facts,
[i] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011. Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.
[ii] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012. We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.
[iii] Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is little more than a murderous thug who should have been droned in the same way we droned Gen. Qassim Soleimani, the terrorist POS who ran the Quds Force until Donald Trump wiped him out.
[iv] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land. At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.
[v] The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock is a left-wing way to terrorize the citizens of the world whenever a conservative or Republican is president of the United States. Pay no attention to these scumbags.
