  33. 2000 Thursday: George W. Bush’s lead over Al Gore in all-or-nothing Florida slipped beneath 300 votes in a suspense-filled recount, as Democrats threw the presidential election to the courts, claiming “an injustice unparalleled in our history.’  Folks, this is what the Democrats do every time they lose an election.  They were scurrying all over Florida seeking ballots in the trunks of cars, looking in trashcans, doing everything possible to overturn the will of the American people.  We should outlaw the Democratic Party.

  41. 2012 Friday: Under intense scrutiny over an extra-marital affair, CIA Director General David Petraeus submits his resignation to President Barack Obama.  In Gaza Strip, raging Palestinians lunatics fire barrages of rockets into southern Israel while in Syria, two suicide car bombings in the city of Deraa kill at least 20 Syrian soldiers and wound loads of others.  Kill the terrorists…
  42. 2013 Saturday: The U.S. Navy christens the USS Gerald R. Ford; the aircraft carrier cost $15.5 billion and technically the most advanced ship ever built.  Meanwhile, three of the four surviving Doolittle Raiders who attacked Tokyo in 1942, all in their nineties, offered a final toast to their fallen comrades in a ceremony at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton, Ohio.     
  43. 2014 Sunday: Germany commemorates the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall with a balloon-release ceremony and celebrations throughout the country; communist East Germany built the wall through Berlin to separate it from West Germany.
  44. 2015 Monday: As the Obama administration continues ginning up issues of race and pay, fast-food workers walk off the job today demanding $15 an hour as the new minimum wage.  Meanwhile, University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe resigned over charges that he mishandled racism on the campus.  At Yale University, 1,000 students stage a major protest over the same issue.  Meanwhile, a rally in Washington, D.C. shuttered parts of the city as protesters ran amok in the streets demanding ‘racial justice,’ ‘social justice,’ and ‘climate justice.’  Wow.  What a mess.
  45. 2016 Wednesday: Shortly after midnight on the West Coast, Donald Trump wins the 2016 Presidential Election as numerous blue states join his column.  The winning margin over Hillary Clinton gives him a MASSIVE MANDATE and puts every Barack Obama executive order and his signature health care plan in jeopardy.   Almost immediately, ‘grass roots protests’ occur in which, legions of weeping girlie boys and angry white women take to the streets, screaming “NOT MY PRESIDENT!  NOT MY PRESIDENT!  NOT MY PRESIDENT!”  Across the nation, students walk off junior high, high school, and college campuses, all angry because Trump won fair and square.  Little did we know that these nuts would be at in the following days, weeks, months, and years.  Send ‘em all to Gitmo! 
  46. 2017 Thursday:  U.S. Senate GOP candidate Judge Roy Moore, already beset by four women claiming he gave them the eye at a shopping center when he was in his early twenties has another accuser Leigh Corfman who said he sexually assaulted her when she was 14 years old and he was 32.  Most people do not believe this BS, believing it to be Democratic Party BS but it would cost him the election to fill the seat of Jeff Sessions, now the attorney-general of the United States.  Democrat Doug Jones[vii] would win the seat in a special election. #MeToo strikes again…
  47. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump issues an order to deny asylum to migrants who enter the country illegally; a divided Supreme Court in December said the administration could not begin enforcing the ban.   Meanwhile, California continues to burn down as an out-of-control wildfire, “the Camp Fire,” erupts into the northern California town of Paradise, an apocalypse that would destroy countless homes and take the lives of numerous people.  Democrats always blame CLIMATE CHANGE when in fact, it’s their fault as they never clean the forests, pin the blame on PG&E for having faulty equipment due to all the demands to meet impossible climate change orders, as well as the fact that 90 cents of every dollar goes to public employees retirement programs such as CalPERS and another 5 cents to the bogus, self-enrichment high-speed rail program.  It is tragic!   Moving on, a federal appeals court rules that ‘Trump cannot end the DACA program.’   
  48. 2019 Saturday:  Yet another brushfire, this one in the hills above the Hollywood sign in the foothills north of L.A. threatens to burn both the sign and causes the Warner Brothers Studio to evacuate their lot in the area.  At least 230 firefighters were involved in trying to quell this blaze which seems to be a way of life for citizens of the once-Golden State.  Gov. Gavin Newsom, do your job, have forestry service deal with the dead trees, brush, and accumulation.  It’s time to do your job or be recalled…
  49. 2020 Monday: Currently, numerous news media sites- fake news, that is, has declared “Pro-China Joe” Biden has 290 Electoral College votes to 214 for President Donald J. Trump.  The true number is Biden 253 and Trump at 214.  No one is supposed to say the truth in fear of their livelihoods, homes, and perhaps even their lives but it’s true as the battleground states continue tabulating votes.  The longer the Democrats are unable to provide a VALID Electoral College count based on TRUE tabulations, the worse the collapse of the Democratic Party and their presidential ticket.  The question is, where is Attorney-General Bill Barr, where is the U.S. Department of Justice checking into the tens of thousands of claims of Democratic Party fraud?  Where are YOU?  Especially when we learn that the Dominion voting systems used around the country are subject to manipulation, tampering, and fraud.
  50. 2020 Monday A: Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo wants to stop the COVID-19 vaccine that is near FDA approval as he will be unable to continue destroying his state further.  This man should be in prison.  Elsewhere- and this is sad- world leaders are congratulating ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe Biden,’ even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.   Meanwhile, Biden gives a brief speech this morning informing the nation of ALL the Trump executive orders he plans to overturn.   He also announces we will rejoin the JCPOA, the Paris Climate Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  Might as well say you plan on selling us out to the Chi-Coms there, Mr. “President-Elect.” 
  51. 2020 Monday B: President Donald J. Trump via tweet today gave U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper who boldly said over the weekend, “ I have no plans on resigning.”  Well, you didn’t have to resign, you got fired.  It should have happened months ago because it’s clear you and the Joint Chiefs of Staff were working against President Trump and would not have provided him support if he wanted to declare the Insurrection Act and send U.S. troops to the cities where riots and mayhem were occurring nightly.   Meanwhile, Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, says he does not have enough phone lines with which to answer all the calls of VOTER FRAUD inundating his office. We must follow this to the end as otherwise, we stand to lose our country.
  52. Monday C: Tonight’s Monday Night Football Game: (14) New England Patriots, 30 (3-5) @ New York Jets, 27 (0-9) 5:15 P.M.  We say the Jets are going to win this one. We were close but close means NO cigar.
  53. 2020 Monday D: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 50,742,952 confirmed cases, +631,805, 1,260,768, confirmed deaths, +7,061, and 33,136,924 confirmed recoveries, +244,559.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 10,151,423 confirmed cases, up 104,523 from yesterday’s reporting, 241,544 confirmed deaths, UP 492, and 5,764,173 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,814.  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: 981,298 confirmed cases, 17,980 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,066 confirmed cases, 220 confirmed deaths, and 12,083 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 122,368 confirmed cases, 2,552 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Ohio, currently, they have 254,974 confirmed cases, 5,524 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries- what is up with that, Governor Mike DeWine?  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 319,784 confirmed cases, 2,676 confirmed deaths, and 309,163 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: India: they have 8,591,075 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 127,104 confirmed deaths and 7,957,206 confirmed recoveries.  For a lark, let’s look at the country where the pandemic began in a biowarfare lab in Wuhan, communist China: LAST WEEK’S NUMBERS- 86,245 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 80,911 confirmed recoveries. THIS WEEK’S NUMBERS- 86,021 confirmed cases, 4,634 [SAME!] confirmed deaths, and 81,187 confirmed recoveries.  Our sources in Hong Kong tell us the REAL numbers on the mainland are between 300-450 times that number: low end- 32,951,067 confirmed cases, 1,870,291 confirmed deaths, and 30,915,784 confirmed recoveries.  Remember- that’s the low end.
  54. 2020 Monday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,157.97, UP 834.57 points (+2.95%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,713.78, DOWN 181.45 points (-1.53%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,550.50, UP 41.06 points (+1.17%).  Price of GOLD: $1,862.30 per troy oz., +7.90 (+0.43%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.14 per troy oz., +0.444 (+1.87%).  Price of PLATINUM: $868.50 per troy oz., +1.10 (+0.13%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,499.20 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.03%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.14 per #, -0.02 (-0.63%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.84, -0.45 (-1.12%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.63 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.87 Afghan afghani.
  55. 2020 Monday F: Good news under the Trump administration: Pfizer announces it has a 90-percent effective vaccine for the Chi-Vi, aka COVID-19.  The president announced it would be coming at some point in November and here it is and “Pro-China Joe” Biden had nothing to do with it.  Speaking of “Chi-Com Joe,” Real Clear Politics pulled back giving Pennsylvania to the pro-Chi-Com former vice president.  Without those perceived Electoral College votes, the stumbling, bumbling old coot cannot call himself “President-elect” anymore.  Things are beginning to change…
  56. 2020 Monday G: Election Day PLUS SEVEN- what are the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party allies up to today?  Stick around and discover the truth with us.    Media outlets trying to STEAL this election for Democrats, you had better watch the f**k out because if you and your BIG TECH buddies lose 2020, you are going to be destroyed. Talk about ‘enemies’ lists,’ we’ll have them for YOU. Well, here is some more truth- Richard Pilger, the U.S. Department of Justice official in charge of voter fraud tendered his resignation- effective within hours– after U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr authorized federal attorneys across the country to investigate thousands of charges of voter fraud and suppression.  Many have been thinking that AG Barr was missing in action; however, it now appears that he, too, is having to contend with his very own snakes working against him.  WTF?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Foreigner released its next studio album, the monstrous “4” on July 02, 1981.  The band had slimmed down to a quartet, the given reason being that some of the musicians were not carrying their weight in the songwriting department but ensemble bands tend to become greedy, want more money, and so bring in some session musicians to cover the gaps.  The band now featured Lou Gramm (vocals), Mick Jones (guitars), Dennis Elliott (drums/percussion), and Rick Wills (bassist).  They brought in some keyboards players as well as some horns, most notably Junior Walker who delivered a stunning sax solo on the big radio hit, “Urgent.”  Added to that big hit was “Waiting on a Girl Like You” and “Juke Box Hero” and you can understand why this album was the monster seller that it was.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and add it to your collection- you will be so glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We offered the music of this famed West Coast band- the Grass Roots- beginning on Thursday, 06-February-2014 through Saturday, 22-February-2014.  We hope you will seek their music out by visiting whatever site you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] We hope to do the music of the Pretty Things within the next year or two.

[iv] We are not sure when we will begin offering the music of Blue Öyster Cult but expect it will be sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned.

[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] See previous.

[vii] In 2020, this hack would be facing imminent loss of the seat as the GOP is on the verge of making a big comeback. A Chuck Schumer sycophant, former Auburn College football coach Tommy Tuberville would replace this scumbag.

Author: Chef Murphy MacDougal, ACF-CWC, CCM

I began my career as a young chef in the kitchen back in 1975, earlier than that. I apprenticed underneath my father and spent six years working for him in his British-Irish restaurant in Fresno, California. I later moved to Frazier Park, California, and spent quite a few years working in the area and that is where I met Stinkbug. Anyhow, I am now working at a country club over on the coast near San Luis Obispo. Please note: this is my pen name and any photos of me are simply outdated photos adopted for maintaining my privacy. Above, you see the caricature created for me by Bakersfield street artist, the amazing Simone. We have gone this route because of increasing threats against the blog and its members.
