Meanwhile, in Biarritz, France, a meeting of the G7 nations agrees to pay $20 million (such a paltry amount) to help fight the horrifying forest fires devouring the Amazonian rainforest.   Meanwhile, American movie star Leonardo DiCaprio and his environmental group Earth Alliance says he- and it- will pay $5 million which is a BIG SLAP in the face to the G7 leaders.
  56. 2020 Wednesday: Basement-dwelling “Pro-China Joe” Biden says the Republican National Convention is an ‘alternate reality.’  His good pal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi mumbles that the House will investigate Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s speech from Jerusalem the previous night as some sort of illegal speech.  Speaking of angry Democrats, BIG LOSER Hillary Rodham Clinton continues telling the Biden campaign “Not to concede under any circumstances on Election Day” as she believes ‘he will eventually win.”  Four years ago, she was blasting Donald J. Trump for saying he would have to ‘wait and see’ before accepting the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.  My, how times have changed.  Meanwhile, Democrats continue attacking First Lady Melania Trump for ‘not being able to speak English when she gave her speech in the White House rose garden the previous night.’  Well, many believe it’s better to have a first lady with an accent than one with a swinging dill pickle like the prior one.  Add to this the fact that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, is attempting to take a second bite at the apple by demanding Deutsche Bank hand over President Trump’s financial records.   Finally, Democrats are beginning to express their dissatisfaction with “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s ‘basement strategy.’  Hell, we could have told you he wasn’t going to win if he continues on addressing the nation from his bunker.
  57. 2020 Wednesday A: In the Gulf of Mexico, Hurricane Laura is expected to be a Cat 4 storm when it makes landfall sometime tomorrow along the Texas-Louisiana coastlines with winds up to 115 mph, 15-20 feet of storm surge, and hitting up to 60 miles inland.  In Texas, 420,000 people are evacuating as are between 200,000-250,000 people in Louisiana.  God help them.  Meanwhile, in California, wildfires have ravaged more than 36.5 million acres, an area more than 6-times the size of New York City.  Already, at least 7 lives have been lost as have countless homes and businesses.  Speaking of lost lives, after two nights of hardcore rioting and looting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the shooting of Jacob Blake, gunfire kills 2 and injures at least one.  Police have dragnets out for the shooters as more National Guard troops AND federal law enforcement officers arrive on scene.  Speaking of RIOTS, after 90 straight days of violent protests- and five straight nights of called ‘riots’ in Portland, Oregon, Gov. Kate Brown demands it STOPS NOW.  The Trump administration wants to send in troops and is pushing the Democrat governor to accept them.  (If you want our opinion- and we know you do, otherwise you would not be here, it’s time to round up ALL rioters and commit a Malmedy Massacre on them).  Elsewhere- on the other side of the planet- in response to a U2 surveillance flight over territory the Chi-Coms claim is their own, the Chi-Com military fires off two missiles a la North Korean-style as a form of ‘protest.’  F**k them!
  58. 2020 Wednesday B: Here are tonight’s speakers at the Republican National Convention: Lara Trump, Trump campaign senior advisor, Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-IA, Gov. Kristi Noem, R-SD, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY, Former DNI and current RNC Advisor Rick Grenell, and outgoing White House Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway.  Also speaking tonight are former Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, National Security Advisor to Vice President Pence, retired NFL player Jack Brewer, GOP congressional candidate Madison Cawthorn, R-NC, former NFL player and current congressional candidate for Utah Burgess Owens, Michael McHale, president of National Association of Police Organizations, Associated Contract Loggers and Truckers of Minnesota Executive Director Scott Dane, and Sister Dede Byrne, medical surgeon and member of Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and of course, possible others such as civil rights icon Clarence Henderson.  Meanwhile, Carly Fiorina tells Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto that she will be voting for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Go figure.  It’s the FACE! Finally, the U.S. Department of Justice orders four states- New Jersey, New York, Michigan, and Pennsylvania to hand over all records related to their states sending COVID-19-infected patients into rest homes where vulnerable older citizens resided.  The death toll was horrendous among these people in each of these states.  Speaking of COVID-19, here’s today’s numbers:
  59. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 24,011,502 confirmed cases, UP by 316,856 cases, 821,809 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,555 deaths, and 15,636,116 confirmed recoveries, UP by 255,012 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,899,331 confirmed cases, UP by 49,053 new cases, 181,791 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,416 new deaths, and 3,002,904 confirmed recoveries, UP by 22,300 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt c**ksuckers).
  60. 2020 Wednesday D: 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: 679,099 confirmed cases, 12,407 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,984 confirmed cases, 49 confirmed deaths, and 2,236 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,904 confirmed cases, 1,876 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, New Mexico: 24,732 confirmed number of cases, 755 confirmed number of deaths, but unlike other Blue State locales, there are 12,193 confirmed recoveries in the state.
  61. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,331.92, UP 83.48 points (+0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,656.06, UP 198.59 points (+1.73%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,478.73, UP 35.11 points (+1.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.30 per troy oz., +8.80 (+0.45%) while the price of SILVER is $27.49 per troy ounce, +0.041 (+0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $945.90 per troy oz, +6.10 (+0.65%) while the price of COPPER is $2.98 per pound, +0.0145 (+0.49%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $43.35 per barrel, -0.04 (-0.09%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.89 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  62. 2020 Wednesday F: Tucker Carlson reports on his show that one of the candidates for district attorney in Los Angeles is San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, someone supported by Governor Gavin Newsom who wants to abolish all jails and prisons as well as disband the police.  He also reports the truth that the upheavals in the United States are not ‘race-based’ but ‘class-based,’ the classic Marxist assault on society. It is clear to many that this election is one in which FREEDOM goes up against COMMUNISM which means we have one choice and one choice only: DEFEAT the Democrats and everyone connected to them.  Thank you, Democratic-Socialist Party of America- the DSPA- the NEW Democratic Party, you have sold your souls and you are making it easier for us to crush you.

Electric Light Orchestra released their fifth album, “Eldorado,” on May 10, 1974.  This was a concept album of sorts with Jeff Lynne being the driving force behind the music.  It would put the band back on track and would serve as the prelude for their next effort, the biggest selling album in their career that would come out a year later.  The band featured  Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), Mike du Albuquerque (bass, backing vocals), Mike Edwards (cello), Mik Kaminski (violin), and Hugh McDowell (cello) plus an additional orchestra.  We love this album and know that the readership will, too, which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out and add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did.

[i] We hope to present the music of this UK space rock band, Hawkwind, sometime in the next five years or so.  Please remain vigilant for additional information.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[iii] When we promote the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will also promote the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned.

Like the rest of my colleagues here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, I turned my likeness over to up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone and this among other images is what I got. Kudos, Simone, Kudos for making me look, uh, so dignified. Ah well, I spent most of my life working in food service in a variety of states and places. Among my stops was one in Washington State where I met Stinkbug in the WSCA. We have been friends ever since and have been working long and hard to create an enjoyable reading experience for our fans, provided Google Blogger will allow the public to see us.
