  63. 2020 Friday:  Today’s attempt to bring down President Donald J. Trump comes to us from an article in The Atlantic magazine in which in 2018, the president called fallen U.S. soldiers at a U.S. military cemetery “losers and suckers.”  Four unnamed sources claim this is so just as they contend that President Trump also ‘didn’t think that wounded U.S. soldiers should participate in military parades.’  Most people believe that Generals John Kelly and “Mad Dog” Mattis are two of the sources but the sources say they won’t come forward out of fear of ‘angry Tweets.’  Uh, okay.
  64. 2020 Friday A: When federal agents go to arrest the Antifa POS who murdered Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of Patriot Prayer, a conservative peace group in Portland, Oregon, last weekend, the perp- Michael Reinoehl drew a handgun and was shot dead.  Good riddance.  Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Speaker Nancy Pelosi finds herself under verbal assault as protesters go after her for violating her own rules about wearing face masks and not going to hairdressers for indoor appointments.  The old bat continues claiming ‘I was set up.’  We hope that AOC-backed Shahid Buttar cleans your clock on November 03.
  65. 2020 Friday B: In the Oval Office today, the president of Serbia- Aleksandar Vučić and the prime minister of Kosovo- Avdullah Hoti- sign an economic peace deal before the watchful gaze of President Donald J. Trump which will benefit both nations.  In so doing, Kosovo- a largely Muslim country- agrees to recognize Israel and Serbia says it will move its embassy to Jerusalem.  Fantastic!   Speaking of Trump, his approval ratings have climbed back to 52-percent, what they were before the Yellow Flu hit the U.S. Elsewhere, Hilton Hotels says it is going to close its mega-hotel in New York’s Times Square permanently.  The state and city continue losing businesses thanks to the mismanagement of Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill Di Blasio. 
  66. 2020 Friday C: As economic news continues being positive for August, we learn that 1.37 million new jobs were created and that the jobless rate fell to 8.4-percent.  Democrats continue whining and screeching that Trump is destroying the economy while “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues expanding on his theme he mentioned yesterday: ‘I can’t tell you my tax plan because “they’ll shoot me.”  Your tax plan’s that bad Joe?  Maybe you shouldn’t win in November!  Elsewhere, as of publication time, stocks continue falling after dropping 807 points on Thursday.
  67. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 26,398,466 confirmed cases, +323,857, 870,477, confirmed deaths, +6,324, and 17,565,712 confirmed recoveries, +228,328.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,283,209 confirmed cases, up 63,148 from yesterday’s reporting, 190,058 confirmed deaths, UP 1,204, and 3,373,378 confirmed recoveries, UP 84,857.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 727,072 confirmed cases, 13,497 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 9,202 confirmed cases, 79 confirmed deaths, and 2,778 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 79,121 confirmed cases, 2,034 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Oklahoma- currently, they have 62,040 confirmed cases, 846 confirmed deaths, and 5,213 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Kevin Stitt for your state’s honesty in this regard.
  68. 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,133.31, DOWN 159.42 points (-0.56%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,313.13, DOWN 114.97 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,426.96, DOWN 28.10 points (-0.81%).  Price of GOLD: $1,940.90 per troy oz., +6.60 (+0.34%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.12 per troy oz., +0.403 (+1.51%).  Price of PLATINUM: $906.90 per troy oz., +8.70 (+0.97%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,304.00 per troy oz., +3.00 (+0.13%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.07 per #, +0.0125 (+0.41%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.51, -0.26 (-0.65%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.84 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  69. 2020 Friday F: Oregon Governor Kate Brown- when asked WHY she won’t send the Oregon National Guard into Portland, Oregon, to stop what will be soon 100 nights of unrest, she told a reporter that the ‘Guard is not trained in law-enforcement matters.’  In other words, rioters, and looters, continue doing what you are doing because NO one is going to stop you from running amok.  Elsewhere, we learn that the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon’s port cost the city $3.2 billion, left 300,000 people homeless and claimed the lives of 191.  Although it’s not clear as to what set off the ammonium nitrate or why it had been stored in warehouses lining the port for what is said to be ‘years,’ we suspect that Hezbollah and its leader Hassan Nasrallah were keeping it there for use in attacks on neighboring Israel.  It is time a drone takes out Mr. Nasrallah as he is the next ranking terrorist in the world after Abu Bakr al-Baghdad and Gen. Qassim Soleimani.  Light ‘em up!
  70. 2020 Friday G: Yet to come but we all know the Democrats as directed by their Chi-Com overlords are causing problems around the country.  Stick around and we will share them…WHERE’S NANCY PELOSI? WHERE’S KOOKY KAMALA HARRIS? Speaking of Pelosi, this blog will pay for a facsimile of the hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, prescription she’s taking since it’s clear she must be taking the medication to ward off the Yellow Fever…

Roy Wood’s Wizzard became- for one album- the Wizzo Band.  It released its ‘freshman effort,’ “Super Active Wizzo,” on December 11, 1977.  Once again, his band featured the lineup of Wood himself on numerous instruments and vocals Graham Gallery (bass), Rick Price (guitars/pedal steel guitar), Billy Paul (saxophones and woodwinds), Bob Wilson (horns), Dave Donovan (drums), and one or two other musicians to round out the sound.  The album did okay but the group’s creator, Roy Wood, was always evolving, mutating, and changing his musical sound.  This album has a jazzier feel but the group would disband after its release.  As always, the writing and lyrics are superb as anywhere Roy Wood is means there is a great deal of talent injected into whatever effort upon which he applies himself.  Please, check it out and enjoy because the AICPENDBLOG.COM recommends it for all readers of the blog.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  At the time, we damned sure should have promoted the music of its various members such as Roger “Jim” McGuinn, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark, David Crosby (along with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and their associated catalog of group and solo endeavors), as well as later Byrds such as Gene Parsons and Skip Battin among others.  We hope to do so one day and hope that you will indulge us when we do.

[ii] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too. 

[iv] We are not sure as to when we will promote the music of the Pretenders but when we do, you will be the first to know so rejoice.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] The father of Mitt Romney who plagues our modern times with his RINO BS.

[viii] Sadly, we were not as attuned to the sharing of interconnected bands and musicians when we promoted Santana years ago but we do hope we will be able to promote the music of Journey at some point in the nest 10-12 years.

Author: Chef Hector Santanamos "El Chilote" De Soto CEC-ACF

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog. I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse. I was a young cook back in the early 1960's when I commenced my culinary career. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug. El Chilote writes from Shafter, California. El Chilote is a moderate Democrat. Contact me at or
