  45. 2016 Monday: President-elect Donald J. Trump tries to gain GOP support on his infrastructure plan that will rebuild the United States crumbling infrastructure and will put tens of millions back to work in high-paying jobs.  So far, they are ignoring him. 
  46. 2017 Tuesday: A new tax bill in the U.S. Senate- if passed- would kiss the mandate under Obamacare ‘goodbye.’  The mandate has kept the nation’s economy in the pits with employers employing their workers at 28 hours or fewer per week so as not to have to pay the massive Obamacare dollars.  Thus, U.S. workers have had to work 2, 3, even 4 jobs just to stay even.  It needs to go.  Meanwhile, Pentagon leaders told Capitol Hill that they would negate any order by President Trump to launch a nuclear war against an adversary.  Deep State strikes again.

Trump wants to revise U.S. prison and sentencing laws, wants to see them made fairer and for nonviolent criminals to be freed from unjust sentences.  Meanwhile, as California continues burning down, customers on PG&E discover that they could very well be on the hook for the awards the utility giant is going to have to pay out through higher energy rates.  Thus, their homes burn down, family members die, and things appear bleak and now the survivors will have to foot the bill.  California Democrats are responsible for this fiasco.
  48. 2019 Thursday: Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick entered the race for the 2020 nomination to lead the Democratic Party in winning back the White House.  Former president Barack Hussein Obama gave him tacit approval which drove a dagger into the back of his former vice president, Joe Biden.   Hillary Clinton claimed on this date that many people are urging her to make another run.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues saying that the Democrats are going to drag down Donald J. Trump after the previous day’s impeachment hearings proved absolutely nothing.     
  49. 2020 Saturday:  Today is the Million Maga March in Washington, D.C., a peaceful protest in which nearly a million voters are calling for a FAIR ELECTION and not the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election in which, Democrats, RINOS, foreign governments, and compliant, supportive media continue trying to overthrow the Trump administration.   One speaker pointed out that the corrupt Dominion software system seems to have ‘glitches’ that go in ONLY one direction: for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Elsewhere, in California, one House seats flips from BLUE to RED as Congressman Gil Cisneros concedes to Republican challenger Kim Young, a Korean American.  In another close House race, it appears that former Republican Congressman David Valadao is going to win his election over Democrat incumbent T.J. Cox, a man beset by corruption allegations, tax liens, and tax fraud.  Poor Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi!  Finally, former White House physician and Texas Congressman-elect Ronny Jackson says that ‘Joe Biden must undergo a cognitive test.’  Amen, the man is a senile old fool.
  50. 2020 Saturday A: Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller says that ‘more U.S. troops will be coming home from Afghanistan over the course of the next several weeks.  Meanwhile, Armenians set their homes ablaze as Azerbaijani troops begin taking possession of the disputed area that has ignited a HOT WAR between the two former Soviet republics.  Elsewhere, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrives in France to begin his seven-country tour in which, he and European leaders will discuss foreign matters. 
  51. 2020 Saturday B: Senator Susan Collins of Maine, GOP, slams Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer who spewed all sorts of lies about the Republican lawmaker.  She let him have it verbally with both barrels as she should because in our view, Schumer is a POS.  Even Dick Durbin would make a better minority leader for the Democrats than this scurrilous scumbag.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman-elect Nicole Malliotakis, New York 11th Congressional District winner, announces she will establish an anti-socialist squad with all the incoming freshmen GOP congresswomen.   Simultaneously, “Bug-Eyes” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, birth name- Sandy Cortez, says that she ‘is going to spend the next two months working hard at helping Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock win their Georgia Senate races as well as for other House Democrats attempting to cling to their seats.  Elsewhere, Bill Maher, the unhinged late-night TV personality blasts the Democratic Party for ruining the party by pushing through the senile old fool, “Pro-China Joe” Biden and for pushing socialism.  Finally, North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum orders a statewide mask mandate as numbers for the Chi-Vi continue going up in his state.
  52. 2020 Saturday C: California’s far-left Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom finds himself on the receiving end of taking loads of heat after he and numerous friends and family were busted celebrating a birthday at a local restaurant with NO ONE observing his draconian mask mandate or social distancing.  We have seen other hack Democrats like “Mumbles” Pelosi and “Crying Chuck” Schumer also NOT wearing masks in public.  Here we have yet another clear example of RULES FOR THEE BUT NOT FOR ME.  Time to recall this Benito Mussolini wannabe.  Meanwhile, Guitar Center announces it may file for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections.  We also know that AT&T is looking to offload CNN- could President Donald J. Trump seek to buy the distressed, leftist propaganda network and transform it into a viable center-right bastion of the truth?  We would love to see that!
  53. 2020 D: As Democrats and their Fake News media allies- including Fox News- continue telling us that “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the election, that it’s time to unify, come together, and move on,” we learn that Trump-Pence won an astounding number of GOP votes in the Golden State.  What?  We believe Trump-Pence WON California.   Speaking of liberal calls for UNITY, how can we unify when Democrats call Trump supporters, “Nazis, racists, haters, homophobes, xenophobes, bigots, misogynists, transphobes, and other negative epithets to which we’ll add another for the heck of it: furryphobes.  We mean, why not?  They call us everything else under the book and then expect us to unify around them?  Bulls**t.  Meanwhile, Wisconsin voters sue to have the fraudulent ballots thrown out of their state’s count.  LET’S DO THE ELECTION OVER WITH VOTER ID AND ON PAPER BALLOTS AND THEN DO THE COUNTS WITH EVERYONE WATCHING THEM AS THEY GO?
  54. 2020 Saturday E: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto Drawing #3508 with a $26 million jackpot up for grabs as well as the Powerball Drawing #794 with a $168 million jackpot on the line. First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 12, 13, 23, 31, 36, and Mega 10.  One person had the five numbers PLUS the Mega for a prize of $26 million; the second highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $36,680.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball drawing:  07, 15, 18, 32, 45, and Power 20.  The highest winners were two people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $18,378 apiece.       
  55. 2020 Saturday F: North Korea enters the nation’s 10th month of ‘lockdown’ (they are always under lockdown) to combat the spread of the Chinese Virus.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, let us present to you the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 53,843,270 confirmed cases, +561,920, 1,309,784, confirmed deaths, +8,763, and 34,676,955 confirmed recoveries, +282,661.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 10,961,690 confirmed cases, UP 151,385 from yesterday’s reporting, 248,833 confirmed deaths, UP 1,187, and 5,926,001 confirmed recoveries, UP 40,433
  56. 2020 Saturday G: 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: 1,020,576 confirmed cases, 18,221 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,519 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and last week at this time 12,055 confirmed recoveries but none reported this week.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 132,183 confirmed cases, 2,634 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Missouri- currently, they have 245,435 confirmed cases, 3,461 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- we guess it is what it is.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 323,339 confirmed cases, 2,721 confirmed deaths, and 312,625 confirmed recoveries.      
  57. 2020 Saturday G: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi calls out Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg for not following mass censorship demands other BIG TECH and Social Media platforms buckled under into doing.  Meanwhile, Judge Janine has her show on Fox News Channel tonight and gets pretty close to pointing out all of the crooked shenanigans that occurred during the 2020 Presidential Election with Corey Lewandowski pointing out that even with a court order from a judge in the Keystone State, Pennsylvania election officials still prevented him and other observers from entering count rooms.  This says beyond a shadow of a doubt that the U.S. Justice Department needs to come down atop these scumbag Democrats like a load of bricks.  The election in the state MUST- we repeat MUST occur again with voter ID (not racist) and with paper ballots.  Otherwise, it should be stripped from “Pro-China Joe’s” win column.   
  58. 2020 Saturday H: It would appear that Georgia- with a Republican government- is going to resort to no in-person voting due to a spike in Chinese Virus cases.  How convenient, you know, it seems that Georgia is going against Trump and could throw the two important U.S. Senate races to the Democrats.  Let us hope this is not true…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Not to be outdone by his Foreigner band mate, fiery guitarist Mick Jones released his self-titled solo debut, “Mick Jones” on March 21, 1989.  Jones had been in the music business for a long time, having taken Luther Grosvenor’s place in Spooky Tooth when it reformed for three albums with Gary Wright in charge in the early to mid-1970s.  From there, he assembled a powerful group of Anglo-American musicians to create Foreigner and from there, they became one of the greatest all-time hard rock bands with a twist- they could also do lush ballads that put them in like flint with the women of the era.   He had the help of an army of fellow musicians, many of them Brits like himself which resulted in a superb solo album that unfortunately was not a gigantic seller like Gramm’s solo effort was.  We hope you will seek this album out and add it to your collection because fantastic guitarists, he is an unsung hero.  You’ll enjoy it.

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.
