UU. 2015 Wednesday: In the journal, “Nature,” Oxford University reports that thanks to the intervention of modern medicine in Africa, approximately 700 million cases of malaria have been prevented. We know that hydroxychloroquine is one of the best anti-malarial drugs in use on the African continent and in 2020, it’s interesting to note that a country such as Uganda that has long used this extremely low-cost drug the deaths in 2020 from COVID-19 are almost nonexistent. Elsewhere, in Burkina Faso, security guards launch a coup taking President Michel Kafando and other ranking government officials into custody.

  52. 2020 Wednesday A: In Austin, Texas, two construction cranes collide into one another killing no one but injuring at least 22 people on the ground.  Illegal aliens at the controls?  It is Texas, after all.  Meanwhile, Hurricane Sally, a Cat 1 storm, continues assaulting the coastlines of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.  Rains are heavy, storm surges strong, and flooding rampant.  Elsewhere, NFL ratings are in a nosedive, the opening week’s ratings coming in with a 20-percent or more drop in viewership.  Every game save the New Orleans Saints-Tampa Bay Buccaneers was below normal.  Don’t expect it to get any better anytime soon, the league’s owners MUST- we repeat, MUST- terminate the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell and send this virtue-signaling POS packing and then must regain control of the players and enforce the rules.  You remember ratings were DOWN in 2016 and were it not for Donald Trump, they would have continued tanking.  This is your second chance, NFL team owners, and if you blow it this time, we expect America’s favorite sport will be as popular as midget mud-wrestling.  Don’t blow it.  Speaking of football, the BIG 10 says it is going to return to playing games.  Congratulations!
  53. 2020 Wednesday B: Senate Minority Leader and knuckle-dragger Sen. Chuck Schumer wants the head of Health and Human Services boss Alex Azar’s head over some bogus charge concerning the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever Bat Flu.  Chuck- STFU.  Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics polling average shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden with a lead of 49-percent to 44.7-percent over Trump.  Wow.  You go, Joe, you go!  Next, along the west coast, out-of-control wildfires continue to burn acres and take lives yet in our northern neighbor, Canada, the wildfire season is way, way down thanks to proper forest management.  Democrats, do NOT think we won’t remember who is responsible for all the ills come November or in November 2022, November 2024 and onward.  YOU will pay.  Finally, last night, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel had Chinese Virus Crisis whistleblower Dr. Li-Meng Yan on his program and she told the host that Beijing knew the facts concerning the Wuhan Flu and that they INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED IT TO ESCAPE.  It is interesting to note that famed bastion of free speech, Twitter (yeah, right), silenced the doctor’s account on September 15.  My, my, my!
  54. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee has issued subpoenas to former CIA director John Brennan, former National Security advisor James Clapper, and former FBI director James “The Saint” Comey.  Good.  Bring them in and bust their balls on live TV! Elsewhere, radio talk show king, Rush Limbaugh, reports today on his program that new polling shows that in strife-torn cities and towns across the country, voters favor Donald Trump by a 2-1 margin in November.  Ooops!  Not good for the Democrats!
  55. 2020 Wednesday D: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 29,689,922 confirmed cases, UP by 281,498 cases, 937,543 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,376 deaths, and 20,152,872 confirmed recoveries, UP by 201,786 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,704,125 confirmed cases, UP by 29,165 new cases, 199,297 confirmed deaths, UP by 912 new deaths, and 3,636,578 confirmed recoveries, UP by 21,091 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 motherf**kers).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 170,465 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 122,785 confirmed recoveries.
  56. 2020 Wednesday E: 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: 771,288 confirmed cases, 14,648 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,951 confirmed cases, 100 confirmed deaths, and 3,885 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 84,320 confirmed cases, 2,107 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, Idaho: 35,984 confirmed number of cases, 420 confirmed deaths, but no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Brad Little for acting like a Democrat and remaining mum on this figure.
  57. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,032.38, UP 36.78 points (+0.13%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,050.47, DOWN 139.85 points (-1.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,385.49, DOWN 15.71 points (-0.46%).  The price of GOLD is $1,967.20 per troy oz., -3.30 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $27.32 per troy ounce, -0.156 (-0.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $972.80 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.07%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,399.00 per troy oz, -7.50 (-0.31%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.17 per barrel, +0.01 (+0.02%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.75 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.03.
  58. 2020 Wednesday G:  President Donald J. Trump- speaking from the White House today- said that he believes a vaccine will be available to combat the Wuhan Virus sometime in October.  Earlier in the day, CDC Director Robert Redfield said that ‘masks are good’ and that ‘he was not as optimistic about a vaccine before late 2021.’  We shall see.  However, Dr. Scott Atlas says 100 million doses should be available by the end of 2020.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says his legal advisors have told him that he could probably issue a nationwide mask mandate via executive order.  Joe: NOT enough prisons to hold everyone who will not obey the bull crap order.  Better to make hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, available to ALL Americans.
  59. 2020 Wednesday H: Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice charges five Chi-Com hackers with attempting to hack into more than 100 sites including social media and government.  Currently, law enforcement is tracking these scalawags down.  Next, President Trump reverses himself from an earlier stance and says that limited briefings on U.S. elections security will be provided to key members of Congress.  As everyone knows, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, the Iranians, the Cubans, the North Koreans, the Venezuelans, everyone with an ax to grind against the U.S. is going to attempt changing U.S. election results in November as they always do.  When Barack Hussein Obama was president, he said influencing an election one way or another was nearly impossible so why would things be any different now?
  60. 2020 Wednesday I:  Not sure what the Chi-Coms and their running dog lackeys, the Democratic Party are doing today but when we find out, we will report it so make sure you stick around and find out with us…

Wednesday, September 16, 2020:


[i] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[iv] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] 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.

Author: Chef Gervais "The Krink" Krinkelmeier

Our personal identity and security are now very important so I, like everyone else at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day has had local Bakersfield, California, up-and-coming street artist, Simone, create some portraits of me. The problem is in this hyper age of partisanship and the far left going bonkers, we have had to cut back on how much of ourselves we share with the readership. Sad to say, it sucks especially for someone such as me who lives in a small community and owns a business. I have been in professional foodservice for a long, long time and have known Stinkbug for an equally long time. My name is pronounced KRONK-L-MYER but everyone calls me "The Krink." Gervais writes from Frazier Park, CA. Gervais is a member of the Libertarian Party. Contact me:


  1. One would think someone would do something about the Democrats and their corrupt governing practices in this state, practices that include colluding with the Chi-Coms and enriching themselves from the fiasco of high speed rail and the mismanagement/maltreatment of the state’s forests. CalPERS threatens to bankrupt the state and we who live here HOPE the federal government does not bail out the state. If we are ever going to flip it from BLUE to RED, the state will have to collapse and ICE will have to round up and deport every single frigging illegal alien POS! Excellent post, Gervais!
