  53. 2016 Sunday: President-elect Donald J. Trump picks Breitbart’s Steve Bannon to serve as his chief political strategist.  Meanwhile, the president-elect sits down with 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl and mentions that he may ‘deport up to 3 million people.’  We expect him to deport about 10-15 million illegal aliens. 
  54. 2017 Monday: Attorney-General Jeff Sessions testifies before the House Judiciary Committee and alludes to the fact that he is considering another look into the Clinton Foundation.  Meanwhile in the era of #MeToo, both the House and Senate are seeking to address their sexual harassment problems.  The American people deserve to know HOW MUCH taxpayer dollars are paid out to keep victims of sexual abuse on Capitol Hill.  They deserve to know this.
  55. 2018 Tuesday:  As California continues to wither under the nonstop forest fires, the death toll rises to 50 with scores of people missing.  Northern and Southern California are ablaze and Democrats in Sacramento raise their hands skyward and ask, “WHY?”  The forests are burning down because you won’t spend money to clean them and second, it’s because you have placed all types of deadlines on PG&E to move to renewable energy sources within the next 10 years.  Unable to update and upgrade power lines while meeting dictates, the state roils under unnecessary fires.  Vote out all Democrats.  On Capitol Hill, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered Capitol Hill cops to arrest 51 climate change activists demanding she do something about ‘climate change.’  Way to go, Mumbles.
  56. 2019 Wednesday: Today was the first day of public impeachment hearings for President Donald J. Trump.  House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-CA, held a disastrous round of hearings with two pro-Ukrainian U.S. diplomats, acting ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor and the deputy assistant secretary of state, George Kent.  Both men flopped and Republican lawmakers tore them to shreds.[vi]         
  57. 2020 Friday:  Election Day Plus ELEVEN… The Chi-Coms congratulate “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his consort, Senator Kamala Harris, on their ‘amazing election victory’ and announce their willingness to immediately begin working with the so-called ‘president- and- vice president-elect.’  We contend everyone suspected as much- why didn’t the Chi-Coms do it on the evening of November 03?  Apparently, there are setbacks for the Trump legal team in the Keystone State- Pennsylvania.  Reports are North Carolina is in the Trump camp- finally- while Arizona is in Vice President Joe Biden’s win column.   Elsewhere- and this is humorous- Congressman Adam “Pencil Neck” Schiff, D-CA, labels the GOP as ‘obstructionists’ for not being willing to immediately begin working with ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe Biden. 
  58. 2020 Friday A: President Donald J. Trump informs the news media that the Chi-Vi vaccine that Pfizer has ready to go is more than 90-percent effective, that the military is doing a bang-up job in preparing to get the first 100,000,000 doses ready to distribute across the country to the nation’s first line responders, the elderly, and the vulnerable.  The cost to the American people will be ZERO.  The federal government is prepared to purchase another 200,000,000 or more doses of the Wuhan Virus vaccine and get them to every American by early next year.
  59. 2020 Friday B: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 53,045,087 confirmed cases, +713,625, 1,297,746, confirmed deaths, +9,780, and 34,273,306 confirmed recoveries, +229,594.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 10,743,254 confirmed cases, up 183,871 from yesterday’s reporting, 247,083 confirmed deaths, UP 2,662, and 5,872,197 confirmed recoveries, UP 41,796.  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: 1,011,568 confirmed cases, 18,160 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,403 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and last week at this time 12,006 confirmed recoveries.  Sadly, beginning this week, Hawaii joined the ranks of states NOT reporting recovery numbers.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 129,844 confirmed cases, 2,619 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 322,159 confirmed cases, 2,706 confirmed deaths, and 310,605 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Indiana- currently, they have 239,139 confirmed cases, 4,863 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

  61. 2020 Friday D: White House trade adviser Peter Navarro says the team is moving ahead with agenda for a second Trump term.  Meanwhile, down in Georgia, the two scumbags who chased down and murdered (allegedly) Ahmaud Arbery will remain in prison due to a judge denying them bail.  The governors of California, Oregon, and Washington issue travel advisories to anyone entering the state of the holidays must quarantine for 14 days or face legal problems which could include confinement.  The governors have already laid out punitive restrictions on holiday gatherings that are so draconian, we expect citizens of the states are going to rebel.  NOTE – to Gov. Gavin Newsom from the AICPENDBLOG.COM: F**K YOU!        
  62. 2020 Friday E: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Drawing #1607 with a $165 million jackpot at stake.  Here are the numbers: 06, 07, 14, 28, 59, and Mega 07.  The highest winners were two people who had four numbers plus the Mega number for $9,045 apiece.  Congratulations

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

At some point, all good things begin coming to an end and due to creative differences between vocalist Lou Gramm and guitarist Mick Jones, the vocalist became the first member of Foreigner to put out his own solo album, “Ready or Not,” on January 19, 1987.  This album contained some classic tunes that got radio airplay such as “Midnight Blue,” and “Ready or Not.”  This should have fired a massive salvo across the bow of Mick Jones’ flagship because if Foreigner were to lose Gramm, things would never be the same other than on the touring circuit.  Joining Gramm (vocals/production) were Bruce Turgon (guitars/bass/keyboards), Nils Lofgren (lead guitar), Phil Ashley (keyboards), and Ben Gramm (drums/percussion).  If you want to enjoy an amazing album, we hope you will seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY NOVEMBER 13, 2020

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Friday, November 13, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of the Troggs on Monday, 06-January-2020 and then Google Blogger slammed the door shut on us.  Go figure.  We hope to return to presenting the music of the greatest bands in the world one day so please, remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[ii] Since this stunning throwback of Democrat cheating, the former Nazi criminal financier George Soros has funded every crackpot far-leftist anti-American secretary of state and district attorney gigs around the country so that he can manipulate and topple elections he does not like.  This man should be delivered to the Hague to stand trial for his World War II-era war crimes.

[iii] If this seems somewhat familiar, it is, Democrats fight to overturn every presidential election they lose.  This is what they do.  Democrats use every crooked means available to them and then some so what we see Democrats doing in 2019 and beyond is the same thing they sought to do to President George W. Bush, prior to him becoming president the first time and again in 2004 when he ran for re-election.  The Democrats tried to produce enough ballots in Ohio and in Florida to throw the election to their candidate, the highly unpopular Sen. John F. Kerry.  There was no way that a clone of Lurch from the Addams Family was ever going to become president without cheating.  Thankfully, he lost.

[iv] Prior to President Donald J. Trump entering office, this was how the U.S. conducted business with foreign adversaries.  Nations sat down and discussed issues, every president prior to President Trump interacted with competitors and adversaries.  For some reason, IF President Trump tries to do the same thing, he is committing treason.  Folks, it would be great if we could work with Russia instead of trying to isolate them as though they remained a Cold War adversary.  China is a far greater danger and we should be doing everything possible to ally with Russia against the communist Chinese.

[v] France has a major problem what with millions of Muslims who want to see the collapse of the French nation and an Islamic hellhole erected in its place.  Enough!  Deport all of the angry Muslims back to their home countries.

[vi] Adam Schiff continues lying that he has never met the ‘whistleblower’ who claims third-or-fourth-hand knowledge of a phone call that President Donald J. Trump had with new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  By the way, the name of the so-called ‘whistleblower’ is a CIA officer by the name of Eric Ciaramella.  He met with Schiff prior to this fiasco and found himself in trouble on this day as he set up a ‘Go Fund Me’ account for his legal fees which is illegal for someone still in government employ.  What a nest of snakes.

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.
