  52. 2018 Monday: Protests marking the seventh anniversary of the revolution in Tunis, Tunisia, turn violent as people begin protesting the current government.  Elsewhere, the Turkish government threatens to take actions against the U.S.-backed Syrian Border Security Force while the government of Bashar al-Assad threatens to extinguish all U.S. operations within his crappy country.  Neither does anything.  Meanwhile, as a former CIA officer tries to fly out of New York, authorities swoop in and arrest the POS Jerry Chun Shing-Lee on charges of espionage for- you guessed it- communist China.  After he left the Central Intelligence Agency, he retained all manner of info in notebooks and handed it over to his handlers.

  55. 2021 Friday: A recent poll says that 9 out of 10 Americans oppose the Capitol Hill riots of January 6, the ones in which, Antifa infiltrated its commandoes amongst supporters of the 45th president to discredit them, in much the same way they have since the Charlottesville clashes between Antifa and white supremacists, BOTH groups we believe were set in motion by ONE entity: the Chi-Coms via their stooges in the Democratic Party.   Meanwhile, drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi announces she is appointing retired U.S. Army General Russell Honoré- of Hurricane Katrina fame- to lead a task force to investigate how to transform the Capitol Building from a ‘soft target’ into a ‘hard one.’  One of the things she can do is not to tell Capitol Hill police officers to stand aside and motion Antifa thugs inside.  Furthermore, Madam Speaker cannot say when the second impeachment trial for President Trump will begin.  Next, lawmakers author a bi-partisan bill to honor slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  God bless him.  
  56. 2021 Friday A: And so it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’   Questioning for what, pray tell?  Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.  Next, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis tells Newsmax TV that ‘this impeachment is no different’ and that it’s an ‘abuse of the U.S. Constitution.’  Meanwhile, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax TV that the ‘D.C. media has switched from the news to advocacy for all left-wing causes.’  Rudy Giuliani believes it’s all a scheme to prevent #45 from running for office again.  Finally, also to Newsmax TV, Dick Morris- famed political strategist and consultant- says that ‘impeachment and the 25th Amendment are watering down the presidency.’  NO- the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the Democrats and the RINOS are trying to replace the presidency with a parliamentary system in which the party in power chooses who will be the figurehead.
  57. 2021 Friday B: New York State news- a new bill in Albany would make it illegal for New Yorkers to own or buy body armor.  Why?  Elsewhere in New York City, we now learn that thanks to the criminal mismanagement by Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and addle-brained NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, more than 372,000 private businesses have been destroyed in the Big Apple, never to return, many of them in professional foodservice and hospitality. 
  58. 2021 Friday C: Due to ‘security threats’ in Washington, D.C., the Inauguration Day rehearsal for ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden has been pushed back to Monday. We learn that J-Lo and Lady Gaga are going to be among the left-wing performers celebrating the ‘victory’ of the incoming senile 46th ‘president.’  Next, according to Rush Limbaugh, the feds are rushing 25,000 troops into Washington, D.C. to prevent against the expected (Antifa-caused) violence on Wednesday, January 20.  (According to the talk show mega-giant, this is more troops than are currently station in BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan).  Speaking of the riots, the FBI reports that the Capitol Hill mobs planned to assassinate leaders.  Again, this sounds like Antifa and BLM human garbage, not Trump supporters.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden chooses former FDA Chief David Kessler to head Operation Warp Speed. 
  59. 2021 Friday D: In a peculiar move, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, a Republican, apologizes to black Tulsans for having opposed the certification of “President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Why?  What was racist about questioning the certification?  Dimwit. Next, the media appears to have twisted the remarks of Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, in suggesting a delay on Biden’s certification.   
  60. 2021 Friday E: Elsewhere, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Republicans and swing state voters favor hiring U.S. workers before hiring illegal aliens.  Next, the Wyoming Republican Party is unhappy with Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of their own, who was among the 10 RINO Republicans to vote for the SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
  61. 2021 Friday F: Fossilized ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces his COVID-19/Stimulus Plan: first, $20 billion for a national vaccination program.  Second, $50 billion for expanded testing, treatment, and tracing programs.  Third, $2,000 stimulus checks for all illegal aliens and American citizens.  Fourth and final, $15 minimum wage for federal entry level jobs.  Economist Stephen Moore says that the final peg of Beijing Joe’s stimulus plan will cost ‘4 million additional American jobs.’  WTF?  Next, the U.S. Secret Service is telling its officers in the run-up to Inauguration Day to remain ‘professional’ and ‘non-partisan.’  Meanwhile, the IRS announces it’s behind on 7 million tax returns from last year all because of COVID-19.
  62. 2021 Friday G: Russia cites the U.S. withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty as its reason for leaving the agreement.  In Great Britain, it would appear that Mask Sharia is on the way there as the British government says, ‘people may have to wear masks forever.’  Wow.  Coming soon to a country near you?  Elsewhere, Dunkin’ Donuts has created a new biodegradable straw.  Congratulations.  Next, a Mickey Mantle baseball card sold for $5.2 million setting an all-time record.  Elsewhere, Joanne Roberts, widow of Mr. Rogers, dies at age 92.  Meanwhile, President Trump plans to hold an event as outgoing president on Inauguration Day at same time senile Old Joe is scheduled to place his quivering hand atop a Bible.
  63. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 93,275,676 confirmed cases, +424,993, 2,000,905, confirmed deaths, +12,615, and 55,500,681 confirmed recoveries, +271,674.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 23,489,378 confirmed cases, up 108,386 from yesterday’s reporting, 390,378 confirmed deaths, UP 1,434, and 10,262,463 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,136.
  64. 2021 Friday I: 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: 2,898,041 confirmed cases, 32,291 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 318 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 288,127 confirmed cases, 3,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Idaho: currently, they have 153,506 confirmed cases, 1,593 confirmed deaths, and 69,460 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 535,049 confirmed cases, 3,910 confirmed deaths, and 447,076 confirmed recoveries.   
  65. 2021 Friday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,814.26, DOWN 177.26 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,998.50, DOWN 114.14 points (-0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.25, DOWN 27.29 points (-0.72%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.036 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.03%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.001 (-0.03%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,395.10 per troy oz, -28.20 (-1.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.04 per barrel, -0.32 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Hong Kong dollars equals 7.75.  In other economic news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says the government ‘declared martial law by imposing the harsh COVID-19 lockdowns on the American people.’  How right you are, sir!
  66. 2021 Friday K: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, says that the Mueller probe into Trump-Russia collusion- Crossfire Hurricane- was ‘the most incompetent’ and ‘most corrupt’ investigation ever conducted by the FBI and the Department of Justice.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Vice President-elect “Kooky Kamala” Harris on the phone.  The incoming VP says she hopes for a ‘peaceful transition of power.’  Next, NY prosecutors drag former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in to answer questions about the 45th president’s finances.    Speaking of losers like Michael Cohen, Lt. Gov. Duncan of the Peach State snivels to reporters that the ‘Georgia statehouse is absolutely less safe now because of Donald Trump.’  Lt. Gov. Duncan- you should not have worked to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com masters who now are YOUR masters.
  67. 2021 Friday L: Currently, the feds are investigating 37 people for their part in the deaths that occurred during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist, says, ‘there will be prosecutions for ALL House members who aided the (Antifa/Black Lives Matter) ‘Trump mob’ in storming the building.  We guess this means that YOU, Madam Speaker, will stand at the head of the line seeing as how YOU and ONLY YOU are in charge of the Capitol Hill PD.  Steven Sund, outgoing Capitol Hill police chief begged for help on at least SIX occasions with no help coming which means YOU stopped help from coming which means BLOOD is on YOUR HANDS.  We await YOUR prosecution! 
  68. 2021 Friday M: President Donald J. Trump orders U.S. Military Command for the Middle East to incorporate Israel into its organization so as to hasten Arab-Israeli military cooperation in defending against the Iranian scum.   Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook says that ‘Parler might make it back online provided they do something about moderating (censoring) content.  Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections.  Finally, Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas rips ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his plagiarizing yet again someone else’s work- the COVID-19 Relief Bill. 
  69. 2021 Friday N: Elsewhere, the Atlanta Falcons hire Tennessee Titans OC Arthur Smith as their next head coach.   Note- we would love to see Matt Ryan make it to another super bowl.    Speaking of the NFL, two games tomorrow in the Divisional Round- L.A. Rams @ Green Bay Packers at 1:35 P.M. and Baltimore
  70. Ravens @ the Buffalo Bills @ 5:15 P.M.  Then on Sunday, we have two more games- Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs @ 12:05 P.M. and Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints @ 3:40 P.M.
  71. 2021 Friday O: Here are the results for tonight’s massive Mega Millions Draw #1625 with a pot of around $725 million at stake: 03, 11, 12, 38, 43, and Mega 15.  Out of 643,493 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,225,193.  Meanwhile, Alex Azar, Health and Human Services secretary offers his resignation, citing the Capitol Hill Riots as his reason for leaving the administration.   Elsewhere, we learn today that Bill Gates of Microsoft fame is the largest owner of private farmland in the United States with 242,000 acres.  Finally, in the waning days of the Trump administration, an asteroid the size of the Empire State Building, about 4.4 million miles from the Earth which is about 18 times the average distance between our planet and the moon.
  72. 2021 Friday P: The government of Morocco awards President Donald J. Trump the Order of Mohammad, the nation’s highest decoration, for his work in creating a framework of peace for Arab nations and Israel.  The ceremony occurred at the White House in a private ceremony.  Congratulations, Mr. President.  Let’s see if your successor keeps the framework of the Abraham Accords in place or tosses them on the rubbish heap and returns to brown-nosing the Palestinians.  Elsewhere, One America News reports growing evidence that foreign nations such as communist China interfered in our elections, NOT just in the 2020 Presidential Election but also in several state elections.  WHY aren’t the liberals braying about ‘ELECTION INTERFERENCE?’  Because we believe Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the Democratic Party and among the RINO wing of the GOP conspired with them to deny President Trump his much-deserved second term.   Meanwhile, Norway reports 11 deaths connected to the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Once again, UFO went into the studio and delivered another powerhouse effort- “Force It”- on July 15, 1975.  The lineup featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Michael Schenker (guitars), and Pete Way (bass).  Famed bassist for Ten Years After- Leo Lyons- was the producer while his band mate, Chick Churchill played keyboards, the first time ever on a UFO record.  The cover was somewhat suggestive and created a buzz more so in the United States than anywhere else in the world and added to album sales.  “Shoot-Shoot” and “Let It Roll” became fan favorites in their live shows which is enough for us to say: seek this one out NOW-you will be glad you did.  Enjoy!

Although a Baptist, I have been peering into my ‘crystal ball’ and the misty visions I have glimpsed have shocked the living Bejeezus out of me

First, there are going to be riots in the streets next week and I sincerely doubt it’s going to be Trump supporters doing the rioting no more than I believe they’re the ones who stormed the Capitol Hill Building on January 06. Sure, some of them were there but Earl Tiberias and I watched the videos and we saw what appeared to be Antifa mobsters doing the actual storming along with a few Trumpers who got caught up in the frenzy.

WINTER SESSION 2021

BLOG POST #3,729 AT THE AICP-END

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS SEVENTY-THREE

Like Nostradamus, I am going to make some bold predictions for the next three days…

Wasco, CA 93280, 01-15-2021 Friday:  Unlike many ‘observers of the national politics,’ Tibe and I have been ‘observing politics for a long, long time now’ and all I can say is that not since the 1960s and the 1970s what with the antiwar protests, the student demonstrations, the riots on university and college campuses, and the antigovernment mood of the country have we seen such horrible times as we are now seeing.  I think everyone feels that IF we drive the shiv into the back of Donald Trump and somehow get him out of office before he leaves in six days that somehow, our country is going to be better for it and that the quilt of peace, love, and joy will descend upon our shoulders.  Sorry to say this but that is precisely what NOT going to happen.   

Now, you all know, E.T. and me are not big fans of Trump the man but we have been of his accomplishments.  He has done things that BOTH Democrats and Republican lawmakers as well as candidates have promised they were going to do but never seemed to find the time or the willpower to actually do.  It seemed like whatever promises made to us by politicians on both sides of the aisle always required another election or two or more to make happen so one election cycle to the next always seemed to push the promises farther and farther into the distant future to the point they went unfulfilled.[i] 

It seems to me that our nation has fallen into the grip of mental illness, that legislators on both sides of the aisle are voting to GET TRUMP as though somehow that is going to improve your lot and ours in life.  I don’t see COVID-19 relief arriving no more than I see a relaxing of Chi-Vi restrictions so what the heck are we doing pursuing a short-timer like Donald Trump when there is so much that needs to be done NOW? 

I am a devout Baptist so jokingly, I pulled out my ‘crystal ball,’ conducted a séance to predict the bad things coming our way if we continue with the drinking of the Jim Jones-cyanide-spiked Kool-Aid our nation seemingly cannot escape from.  I am sorry, we are putting ourselves into an extremely dangerous position because everything in the country is focused on TRUMP THE MAN and not upon the danger idiocy such as what we have been watching this week on Capitol Hill has submitted our country.  Friends, I am AFRAID.[ii]

Knowing full good and well what happened back in 2001 led to similar problems for our country, namely China flexing its muscles by capturing a surveillance plane and crew of ours as well as the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, I think we are in a far more dangerous position NOW than we were back then.  Let me lay out my predictions for the time remaining me this week.  Here we go:

First, there are going to be riots in the streets next week and I sincerely doubt it’s going to be Trump supporters doing the rioting no more than I believe they’re the ones who stormed the Capitol Hill Building on January 06.  Sure, some of them were there but Earl Tiberias and I watched the videos and we saw what appeared to be Antifa mobsters doing the actual storming along with a few Trumpers who got caught up in the frenzy.[iii] 

Moreover, I think what Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said earlier in the week about the possibility of Inauguration Day protests and mob violence breaking out across all 50 states (and probably our territories, too) is a high probability.  Once again, we are sure that infiltrators from Antifa and Black Lives Matter (and probably some foreign entities, too) are going to join those protests and transform them into vehement mobs so government can grab still more power by quelling them.  Must have curfews, you know. 

Every American should be terrified right now at what’s going on and I would urge younger generations to listen to what folks my and my husband’s ages have to say because we have been there and done that.  We will continue tomorrow with my other predictions so I invite everyone to make sure you join me Saturday and Sunday so you can have a glimpse into what I see happening in our near future.[iv] 

It is time to pray, my friends, time to pray.  

God help us!

This is a cartoon caricature of me when I was working at a restaurant in Wasco, CA, my hometown.  The up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist Simone did portraits of each of us here at the blog so I hope you like them as much as I, ahem, do.  Ah, well, I joined the Chefs de Cuisine of Greater Bakersfield, ACF, not long after it was chartered and am still a member even though the chapter is no longer in operation.  I began working in foodservice in the late 1960’s, moved from Wasco, CA, to Monterey, CA, and then returned to my hometown in 2004.  I have been a food server, a Mixologist, and am a Certified Cook.  I am equally at home in both the kitchen and behind the bar (and on the floor, too).  My passions are numerous, and my favorite is working in the bakery whenever I have had a chance.

We continue offering CDs today by one of the greatest San Francisco bands of all time, the Quicksilver Messenger Service. The band’s tenth album, “Unreleased Quicksilver: Lost Gold and Silver,” hit record store shelves in 1999 and gave the diehard fan and the new discoverer a look at the scope of the psychedelic band’s body of work.  For the first time, we got to see a great deal more than any of the music that ended up on the band’s official Capitol Records releases and believe me, it was long-awaited and something ALL of you need to buy.  Please, go to Amazon.com and buy this CD now, you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] It was as if they were designed this way, never to be fulfilled, to be promised in perpetuity, always there, rather like how the Democrats always promise us black folks they are going to do these glorious things for us and then we see them doing them for illegal aliens, gays, and everyone else other than black folks.  What is up with that?

[ii] I am afraid because as back in 2001, we are taking our eyes off the ball.  We want to ‘get Trump,’ well, ‘we got Trump,’ so why continue flogging a beaten horse?  We are in dangerous times and if we fail to do what must be done, I fear we are going to suffer a catastrophic strike the likes of which, we have never seen.

[iii] By predicting ‘there will be riots in the streets in all 50 states on Inauguration Day’ tells me that the coming riots are already in the works and that the Deep State knows and most likely facilitating them.  Tibe and I believe they are fanning the flames of mob violence so the government can grab still more power thus puffing itself up even bigger than it now is.  This is not only un-American, but also frightening, and we could be on the verge of witnessing a Marxist takeover of the country.  What can we do?

[iv] The things I see happening on the global stage are worse than what I see happening here at home.  Look out for a Coalition of Evil as numerous nations join together to eradicate US as well as to eliminate Israel from the face of the Earth.
