  47. 2018 Tuesday: In Saudi Arabia in the King Abdulaziz Camel Beauty Contest, 12 camels undergo disqualification after their owners ‘confessed’ to having used Botox on the lips of their animals.  Did the owners lose their heads, too?  No one knows.  Meanwhile, the ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again, this time in Benghazi, Libya, as a double car bomb goes off in a busy district blowing 33 people to meet Mohammad and wounds dozens and dozens of other unsuspecting souls.  Will they ever stop?  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Jerome Powell to be the next chair of the Federal Reserve by a vote of 84-13.
  48. 2019 Wednesday: Citing the shutdown of the federal government, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvites President Donald J. Trump from giving his SOTU address.  He did it about one month later after the government reopened for business.  Meanwhile, furloughed federal workers swamp the Senate building to protest the ongoing federal government shutdown.  Who let them in?  Where was security? 
  49. 2019 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, the criminal government of Venezuela accuses the Trump administration of ‘engineering a coup’ against the ‘kind, gentle, and loving’ administration of thug President Nicolas Maduro.  Simultaneously, opposition leader Juan Guaidó takes the oath of office as Venezuela’s next president because he did WIN the election until he ‘didn’t.’  The fact that the U.S., Canada, and other Western nations recognize him as the president doesn’t mean s**t as long as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Cubans, and the Iranians continue their support of the Maduro regime.
  50. 2020 Thursday: Fighting continues in Syria as rebels attempt to storm rebel positions in Idlib Province.  Russian and Syrian troops throw the rebels back, killing at least 50 Islamists dead and another 90 wounded while the Syrian government forces lost about half that number.   Meanwhile, in Wuhan, China, nearly 850 cases of the coronavirus with at least 25 fatalities are counted.  Singapore declares its first case of the COVID-19.  The virus is spreading.

Trump will commence on February 8 even though Chief Justice John Roberts says he won’t preside over it (at least until Antifa mobs show up outside his home and ‘persuade him’ otherwise).
  52. 2021 Saturday A: The National Republican Congressional Committee has thrown the 10 House members who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump to the wolves saying they will NOT intervene in Republican primaries in 2022.  Justice is heading your way, you worthless scumbags.  Meanwhile, for some inexplicable reason, ‘President’ Joe Biden trashes President Trump’s executive order slashing drug prices for the American people.  WTF did you do something like this you decrepit old POS.  What the hell is wrong with that?  Elsewhere, Doug Schoen, now with Newsmax TV, says, “More legislation and less executive orders,” ‘President’ Biden.   Finally, in Moscow, Russian police arrest 2,1000 people demanding the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, opposition leader towards thug Vladimir Putin.
  53. 2021 Saturday B: The ACLU is demanding that all states add an “X” to their official documents when it comes to listing one’s sex.  What a load of crap, there are TWO biological sexes, period.  For people that claim to listen to science it’s shocking that they pick and choose what ‘science’ with which to listen.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, the NFL- thumping its chest with pride- is going to give 7,500 Super Bowl LV tickets to vaccinated healthcare workers.  How noble of you.  Meanwhile, also in a moment of chest-thumping, Twitter says that following Inauguration violence across the country, it’s suspending the accounts of Antifa.  Wow.  Really big of you!  Finally, in South Dakota, unemployment has fallen to 3-percent or lower thanks to the state’s decision to keep everything up-and-running.  In places such as New York that closed everything down, the ignoramus Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding ‘President’ Joe Biden give him $15 billion in bailout funds.  We hope YOU go down, you homicidal POS.
  54. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 98,288,147 confirmed cases, +541,350, 2,109,758, confirmed deaths, +12,495, and 54,255,414 confirmed recoveries, +358,448.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 25,109,272 confirmed cases, up 247,884 from yesterday’s reporting, 419,058 confirmed deaths, UP 5,799, and 10,974,161 confirmed recoveries, UP 128,723.  We learn that famed TV personality Larry King died at age 87 due to COVID-19.

  56. 2021 Saturday E: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3528 with a jackpot of $14 million up for grabs and for the Powerball Drawing #814 with a $20 million pot on the line. First up, we have the Super Lotto numbers- 15, 25, 37, 43, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 143,211 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $24,588.  One winning ticket was sold at the Safeway in Newark, CA, 94560 while the other was sold at the 7/11 at Los Gatos, CA, 95030.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball- 05, 08, 17, 27, 28, and Powerball 14.  Powerball for a prize of $33,827 apiece.  Six of the winning tickets were sold in (1) San Francisco Mart I, San Francisco, CA 94116; (2) Shell, Baker, CA 92309; (3) ARCO AM/PM in Bellflower, CA, 90706; (4) Desert Smoke Shop, Desert Hot Springs, CA, 92240; (5) 7-11, San Diego, CA, 92123; (6) Zoo Liquor and Gas, Fresno, CA, 93728.
  57. 2021 Saturday F: Democrats are seeking to rein in expectations over their upcoming ‘immigration bill.’  What?  We thought the 30-50 million illegals infesting our country are getting immediate citizenship and everything that goes with it.  Meanwhile, Dems are also saying that making federal election standards a top priority- what, NO MAIL IN BALLOTS?  Speaking of Democrats, the Chi-Coms are singing a different tune now, claiming that ‘no one on their end was seeking meetings with ‘President’ Joe Biden or members of his administration.  Of course they were and still are- everyone knows it.  They are Joe’s masters so they want immediate payback for having put him in office (or so we allege). Elsewhere, Steve Forbes tells Newsmax that an ‘economic crisis’ is coming soon.  You had better believe it.

Author: Chef Brian Carrick, ACF Retired

My colleagues and I no longer share old photos of us, as the price of success means that lunatics and nuts come looking for one. Therefore, we hired local up-and-coming Bakersfield-Oildale, California street artist, Simone, to create facsimiles of us so we can remain somewhat obscure. Ah, well, I began my culinary career in 1969 bussing tables at age 12 and became a cook's apprentice in 1973 at age 17. I have worked all over California, Hawaii, Washington State, and even a brief time in Arizona. Chef Brian Carrick writes from Weedpatch, California. Chef Brian Carrick is a Conservative Republican.
