  59. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate took their votes on the articles of impeachment against President Donald John Trump today.  On Article I- Abuse of Power- the Senate voted 52-48 with only RINO Utah Senator Mitt Romney joining the Democrats.  This was not enough to convict the president.  On Article II- Obstruction of Congress- the senators voted 53-47 not to convict.  Acquitted on both charges, the president has been cleared and can continue making America ‘great again.’   Meanwhile, back in Utah, lawmakers there drafted a bill that would allow Utahans to recall a senator from the state for dereliction of duty.   Meanwhile, the family of actor Kirk Douglas reports his death at the age of 103.
  60. 2020 Wednesday A: The Diamond Princess docked in Yokohama Bay, Japan, is under official quarantine, all 3,700 passengers and crew because 10 people for sure have the Chi-Vi- COVID-19.  Elsewhere, in the Iowa Caucus, Senator Bernie Sanders and Mayor Pete Buttigieg are in a virtual tie with 97-percent of the precincts reporting.  Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch reports that 138 asylum seekers from El Salvador have been raped, tortured, and/or murdered (or all three) after the EVIL Trump administration deported them.  Tragic.
  61. 2021 Friday: One America News and Mike Lindell presented “Absolute Proof” today in which, ALL the evidence related to the Democratic Party-RINO Republican Party STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election for enfeebled Joe Biden in the hours following Election Day November 3, 2020.  The evidence is precise, clear, and shocking and if people are genuinely interested in knowing how the Democrats, the RINOs and the Chi-Coms stole the election from Donald Trump and gave it to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, all one need do is to watch the show in its entirety.   Speaking of RINOs, the Nebraska GOP is moving to censure Senator Ben Sasse.   Speaking of losers, the effort to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom is fast approaching the finish line.  We want to boot that POS out of office ASAP.
  62. 2021 Friday A: The U.S. Senate votes to keep the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem permanently much to the horror of rabid Anti-Semites such as Democrats Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, among others.  Meanwhile, the IRS backtracks from its mistaken statement that more than 100,000 Americans won’t qualify for the Joe Biden stimulus.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, he says the economy is in ‘bad shape’ and that the Republicans are not doing enough to help him help the economy.   Speaking of Democrats, the Virginia votes to abolish the DEATH PENALTY.  Meanwhile, a bipartisan group of lawmakers are trying to achieve a separate vaccine package separate from the stimulus efforts.
  63. 2021 Friday B: Famed actor Christopher Plummer dies at age 91.  Elsewhere, the Russian physician who initially treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has ‘mysteriously died.’  The Curse of Putin strikes again.  Meanwhile, the United Nations reappoints Michael Bloomberg as its global climate envoy.  Woo-oo.  Finally, National Security Council principals convene to ‘discuss Iran.’  Wow.  There is ONLY one thing to do with Iran and that is to NUKE THEM.   Finally, we learn that President Donald J. Trump is planning a so-called ‘revenge tour’ which will see him touring the country in support of pro-Trump candidates while blasting the scumbag RINOs and Democratic Party bottom-feeders and lowlifes who STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election or who refused to view the abundant evidence of voter fraud and corruption.
  64. 2021 Friday C: Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted to remove Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from her two committee assignments- Budget and the Education & Labor Committee.  All the Democrats voted in lockstep as did 11 Republicans.  Here is the list of Republicans who joined the other side: (a) Adam Kinzinger of Illinois; (b) Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania; (c) Fred Upton of Michigan; (d) Mario Díaz-Balart of Florida; (e) Nicole Malliotakis of New York (we are surprised she did this); (f) John Katko of New York; (g) Young Kim of California; (h) Chris Smith of New Jersey; (i) Carlos Gimenez of Florida; (j) Chris Jacobs of New York; and (k) Maria Salazar of Florida.  It is interesting to note that Kinzinger, Katko, and Upton also voted to impeach Donald Trump a second time.  Disgusting.
  65. 2021 Friday D: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 105,223,208 confirmed cases, +538,813, 2,293,263, confirmed deaths, +15,673, and 58,500,396 confirmed recoveries, +335,421.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,976,488 confirmed cases, up 184,705 from yesterday’s reporting, 461,253 confirmed deaths, UP 6,861, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 17 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 56,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  66. 2021 Friday E: 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: 3,381,278 confirmed cases, 43,062 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,187 confirmed cases, 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 321,940 confirmed cases, 4,492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Illinois- currently, they have 1,140,341 confirmed cases, 21,497 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 675,618 confirmed cases, 5,001 confirmed deaths, and 589,718 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the China Virus, the Pentagon says it will help ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to deliver the Chi-Vi vaccine to the American people, something President Donald J. Trump planned to do.  Meanwhile, Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner, says he will open all 32 NFL stadiums as mass vaccination sites.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will await everyone to receive their vaccinations first and then after inmates, illegal aliens, and everyone else in the groups Democrats and RINOs love, we will consider getting ours after we observe what happens to the Chosen Groups.  
  67. 2021 Friday F: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,619 cases, +241 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as one week ago), and 83,467 confirmed recoveries, +527 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Vermin-eating scum. 
  68. 2021 Friday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,148.24, UP 92.38 points (+0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,856.30, UP 78.55 points (+0.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,886.83, UP 15.09 points (+0.39%). Markets are UP because they believe ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden is going to borrow TRILLIONS from the Chi-Coms.  We still predict that by June 2021, the triple whammy of a $15 minimum wage, ongoing pandemic politics, and massive illegal aliens numbers are going to tank the economy worse than 1929.  The price of GOLD is $1,815.20 per troy oz., +2.20 (+0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $27.04 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,137.80 per troy oz, +4.80 (+0.42%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.01 (+0.39%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,352.00 per troy oz, +0.60 (+2.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.14 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000026 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 74.55 Russian rubles.  Meanwhile, the Chinese-engineered pandemic pushes the U.S. trade deficit to a record high in 2020, to $679 billion, a record 12-year high. 
  69. 2021 Friday H: The Biden administration is purportedly going to return to the same immigration policies the Obama-Biden administration had back during 2009-2017 and that is to reopen detention centers where they will house illegal alien minors…in cages.  Why is it okay for Democrats to commit outrageous activities such as these when Republicans attempt to stop human traffickers and are vilified for doing it.   Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman files the paperwork to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by RINO Senator Pat Toomey in 2022.   Elsewhere, following Robin Hood’s lifting of curbs on buying GameStop stock at its site, shares begin going up yet again.
  70. 2021 Friday I: Although still under contract, Fox News Channel pulls longtime host Lou Dobbs off the air.  No word on whether he will ever return or not.  (We think he will go to Newsmax or OAN).  One of the reasons for his ‘dismissal,’ Smartmatic- the ALLEGED election-stealing software created in Venezuela to enable Hugo Chavez to steal elections has hammered Fox News and three hosts- Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Judge Jeannine Pirro with a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit.  Also included in the lawsuit are Rudy Giuliani, Mike Lindell, and Michelle Malkin.  Oh, wah, wah, wah, Smartmatic, YOU know what you did, you devious scumbags.  Next, in the New York House race, Claudia Tenney, Republican, finally overcame Congressman Anthony Brindisi and won her old seat back.  Congratulations.
  71. 2021 Friday J: Communist China demands the World Health Organization investigate the United States as the creator of the Chinese Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka COVID-19, etc.  Wow.  The Chi-Coms will do anything to ward off blame for what they’ve done and with Joe Biden in the White House, they could get away with it.  Meanwhile, Cowboys for Trump leader is out of jail on bond, awaiting trial for the January 6, 2021 Antifa-led mob that stormed Capitol Hill.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden says he won’t restore the Bar Association’s role in vetting judges.  Not good.
  72. 2021 Friday K: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1631 with a jackpot of $54 million on the line: 14, 17, 28, 29, 44, and Mega 02.  Out of 67,548 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,017 apiece. Elsewhere, heavyweight boxing champion Leon Spinks died in Henderson, Nevada, at age 67 on this date.  Cause of death: advanced prostate cancer.  Spinks did what many people thought was impossible but after just eight pro bouts, Leon beat Muhammad Ali to win the title in 1978.  Later in the year, he would lose it back to Ali in what many people believed was a ‘set-up’ for Ali to win the heavyweight title three times.  Our opinion: NOT SURE.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following their breakup after the “Making Contact” tour, vocalist Phil Mogg set about forming a new band with some new musicians but when he sought to get a record contract, they signed his endeavor as ‘UFO’ and thus we have UFO Mk. II.  The new band featured Mogg, Tommy McClendon (lead guitar), Paul Raymond (guitars/keyboards/vocals), Paul Gray (bass), and Jim Simpson (drums).  The record label, Chrysalis put a veteran producer onto the project and the album came out hot to trot.  This is a superb reconfiguration of the band and we can tell you that it’s worth every penny.  We hope you will rush out and give it a good listen as once you do, you will become as enamored of it as we are- please, check it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[ii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

Is the ‘Give Back Benefit’ real? IF Joe Namath, Joe Theismann, or Kelsey Grammer says it is, so it must be!

The fact that one must call a NON-Medicare company- the Medicare Coverage Helpline in this case- to see if one ‘qualifies’ for everything from ‘home-delivered meals’ to ‘free rides TO the doctor’ (they say nothing about FROM the doctor) to ‘in-home modification’ and ‘even pest control services,’ I am sorry, I do not see how any of these so-called ‘benefits’ are legitimate.

Honolulu, HI 96782, 02-05-2021 Friday:  Aloha, friends, lots of crazy things going on in the world today.  I am telling you, if I have to watch one more commercial on the boob tube, you know, with former NFL quarterbacks or ancient actors pushing ‘extra Medicare benefits’ for which, you must call this company or that so you can learn if you ‘qualify’ for those ‘benefits,’ they are NOT benefits, folks, but seemingly- at least to me- a scam.   I am telling you, if I see slimy old Joe Namath pitching all these FREE ‘benefits’ of which, no one knows anything about but must inquire, I am going to throw my slippers at the TV.  How scummy can that guy get?  It’s disturbing.   

For instance, there’s the ‘give back benefit,’ a ‘benefit’ that can put up to $144 per month back into your account.  How does this work?  What does one have to do to get this ‘benefit,’ I mean, if one qualifies for an additional $144 per month in Social Security/Medicare benefits, why aren’t they receiving the additional monies in their monthly check NOW? 

The fact that one must call a NON-Medicare company- the Medicare Coverage Helpline in this case- to see if one ‘qualifies’ for everything from ‘home-delivered meals’ to ‘free rides TO the doctor’ (they say nothing about FROM the doctor) to ‘in-home modification’ and ‘even pest control services,’ I am sorry, I do not see how any of these so-called ‘benefits’ are legitimate.   

Don’t get me wrong, all of them sound absolutely fantastic but why wouldn’t one be able to discuss these benefits with a government worker at age 65 or older rather than someone in the private sector who will talk to you and then redirect you to someone in government.  I mean, what sort of ‘cut’ do these people receive that comes out of OUR benefits?  This seems to me like a dastardly trap into which unwary seniors can fall and once they realize they have been duped into something they never wanted, it’s too late to back out.

Some of my older family members have warned me that when they called one of these promoters of these benefits, ALL of which are FREE (meaning the phone call’s free, not the benefits), they were signed up without knowing they were.  This occurred because they called, had to provide their personal information to the salesperson at the other end of the phone and next thing they know, they go down to Kaiser Permanente here in the islands and learn they no longer have coverage under them but with some other Obamacare company. 

It doesn’t matter whether they actually asked to be sent to a new Medicare manager/provider or did not, it just magically occurred unbeknownst to them and then they have to wait an entire year before they can get out of the third party insurer and back to Kaiser which means everything is disrupted including one’s ability to see the doctor they like.  Something is NOT right here and I am puzzled as to WHY the federal government doesn’t step in and make things right? 

I also get annoyed when I see these ‘recipients’ of these extra ‘benefits,’ “I called to get what I deserve” to which slimeball Joe Namath chimes in ‘get what you deserve.’  These testimonials sound to me like nothing more than mongoose droppings on one’s car seat or like rats dancing on the phone lines, it’s a frustrating nuisance. 

What’s more, I went online just to investigate it for myself and nowhere in the search results was Medicare/Social Security but a long list of private companies seeking to hawk these benefits and fulfill their signup quotas.   

Finally, the last thing that irritates me is WHY- after the sign-up period for Medicare and Social Security is over- why do we have to continue watching these commercials?  At least last November and December, I had hope that when the enrollment period ended, Joe Namath, Joe Theismann, Kelsey Grammer, and whoever the fourth huckster is, we wouldn’t have to see them again for about 8-10 months thus giving our ears a break.    

Sadly, that was not the case.  For some reason no one around me knows, these guys are still pushing the same garbage.  I wish they’d shut up and go the heck away.  It’s like watching that rabbi wahine begging for food boxes for Jews she claims are Holocaust survivors living in Israel– ISRAEL.  I am sorry, IF Holocaust survivors are living like the ones depicted in the commercials are, supposedly ‘in Israel,’ then shame on Israel.  I simply cannot and will not accept the sales pitch the organization is throwing us.

Like John Lennon once said, “Gimmie some truth!”    

Okay, friends, tomorrow we move into the weekend edition and this Sunday- Super Bowl LV- it’s going to be an amazing game.   Have a lovely day, we will meet again. 

Love you all.

Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created this cartoonish caricature of me so we can keep our identities on the down low due to increasing threats, Web intrusions and threats, and so we do not lose our professional businesses because of our politics here at the AICP-END Blogs. 

That said, I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born.  I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career. 

Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu.  My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the foodservice industry.

We continue offering CDs today by the greatest San Francisco band of all time, the Jefferson Airplane.  The band’s twentieth album, “Live at the Fillmore Auditorium 10/16/66 Early and Late Shows—Grace’s Debut,” hit record store shelves on August 18, 2008 and was another live recording released from the vault for the fans’ listening enjoyment.  Now, we will admit that we did not put these in the order that we should but tried to keep the JA albums together and then present the Jefferson Starship following the original band.  We urge you to visit the Amazon.com website, so you can pick it up at the price that is perfect for YOU.
