  53. 2016 Sunday: As fighting continues to rage in Yemen, Saudi warplanes intercept an Iranian-made SCUD missile in its airspace.  This isn’t the first one, this has been going on for awhile now with Iranians attempting to attack Saudi territory as they continue to support their proxies, the Houthi rebels.   Elsewhere, as Middle Eastern ‘refugees’ continue flooding into Eastern Europe, Slovenia says it’s going to restrict the number of Muslim refugees to whom it permits entry.  Who can blame them?
  54. 2017 Tuesday: The United States sanctions Venezuela’s Vice President Tareck El-Aissami, accusing him of being a narcotrafficker and which allows the U.S. government to freeze his assets in the U.S. and to prevent his entry into the U.S.  Where the heck did the Venezuelans find a Muslim guy to be the number two under Nicolas Maduro.  
  55. 2018 Wednesday: The new St. Valentine’s Day Massacre occurred in Parkland, Florida, on this date when expelled, 19-year-old student, Nikolas Cruz, returned to his former high school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, with an AR-15 rifle and loads of ammunition.  He murdered 17 fellow students and faculty before fleeing and then being apprehended by local police.  People had warned the FBI about Cruz and yet, the FBI never investigated the case as they should have.
  56. 2019 Thursday: Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker stepped down from his post today as the 85th Attorney General William “Bill” Barr assumed the post. A Republican, Whitaker served under President Donald J. Trump from 11-07-2018 until today.  Attorney General Bill Barr served under the same president from today until he stepped down on December 20, 2020.  Meanwhile, former Deputy Director Andy McCabe of the FBI confirms to CBS News that HE was the rat who ordered the probe into President Donald J. Trump for ‘obstruction of justice’ following the president’s dismissal of McCabe’s former boss, former
  57. 2020 Friday: After deliberating three days, a jury finds celebrity attorney and fraud Michael Avenatti guilty of three charges, including wire fraud and extortion for attempting to coerce Nike into paying him $25 million to keep silent about some scam he was attempting to bilk them on.  As you should recall, this POS was the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels.  Meanwhile, the Justice Department decides to pass on indicting fired FBI Director Andrew McCabe and is also going to take another look at the charade around fired former NSC Director Gen. Michael Flynn.  Elsewhere, Egypt has the ignominy to report the first case of the Chinese Virus on the African continent.  The COVID-19 Bat Flu is spreading like wildfire.
  58. 2021 Sunday: First of all, following his one week suspension without pay by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, misogynist and bully Deputy Press Secretary T.J. Ducklo offers his resignation.  Good riddance.  Speaking of the ‘Biden administration,’ progressives are demanding the ‘Biden Justice Department’ pursue now acquitted not once but twice Donald J. Trump.  We surmise the reason for this is (1) because they hate the former president; (2) angry as hell (all the time); (3) have no clue as to how to push their agenda (which very few want); and (4) are mostly crazy, loony, feeble, or plain stupid so they need someone upon whom to divert attention away from them and onto the target.   Folks, we make a bold prediction: this administration- one that ‘won’ via questionable circumstances- is going to crash and burn far sooner than even they believe and are going to become a laughing stock not just here in our country but around the world.  Speaking of Mr. Trump’s victory, his impeachment lawyers said, “We’re going to Disney World!”  Have a great time!
  59. 2021 Sunday A: The Biden White House warns Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece- Meena Harris- to stop linking her personal brand to the sitting vice president.  This is wrong so they are prohibiting (other than for Hunter Biden and his uncles and aunts- they’re okay).   Speaking of Vice President Harris, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says based upon the precedent the reprobate Democrats set in the SECOND UNWARRANTED IMPEACHMENT OF THE 45th PRESIDENT, once the GOP retakes the House of Representatives and reclaims the Senate (hopefully without keeping “Mitch the Maggot” McConnell in a position of leadership- he has to go) because she has said and done things that qualify her for kangaroo court impeachment.  So, too, does enfeebled old Joe- send him packing.   Meanwhile, recent in polls in California show that not only is dimwit Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric “Keep Everything Locked Down” Garcetti, but also Senator Dianne Feinstein’s approval ratings have hit their lowest mark ever- down in the thirties.  Poor Di-Fi.  What do all three have in common?  They’re Democrats.
  60. 2021 Sunday B: In the glorious metropolis of New York City, after four stabbings in the subway of homeless people- two of whom died- forever-wasted Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Democrat, has sent 500 members of the NYPD into the underground tunnels to keep order.  Now, they NEED the cops.  Wow.  Speaking of NYC, we learn that mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, failed presidential primary candidate, has a campaign manager with close ties to jihadist/activist Linda Sarsour.  This should disqualify Mr. Yang as of YESTERDAY.  Speaking of Anti-Semites, since Joe Biden ‘won’ on November 6, 2020, he has had phone calls with 10 world leaders (or whoever’s in his earpiece has)- including the Chi-Coms (who own him), Russia, and others- BUT NOT with Israel.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached out early to Mr. Biden but so far, the ‘Biden administration’ has not responded.  This is NOT good.  Israel is our number one ally in the region but the Anti-Semites in the progressive wing of the Democrat Party HATE the world’s sole Jewish state. We expect the BDS movement will return on steroids.
  61. 2021 Sunday C: RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel chides the Democrats for wasting so much time chasing a white whale- the impeachment of Donald Trump a second time- instead of working on things the American people need and demand.   Speaking of the GOP, the Louisiana Grand Old Party censures Senator Bill Cassidy for voting to convict President Donald J. Trump.  His counterpart, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski recognizes the danger she’s in in the 2022 Mid-Terms because she, too, voted to convict and the state GOP and the voters are pissed off at her.  We think former Governor Sarah Palin should primary the closet Democrat in 2022.   In similar news, the North Carolina GOP immediately censured Senator Richard Burr for his vote to convict.  He is retiring because like his former Senate colleagues Jeff Flake, R-AZ, and Little Bob Corker, R-TN, he knows he cannot win.   Mark Walker is running to take his seat in the primary.   Finally, another disgruntled loser, Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska is quoted as saying, “Tribalism is a hell of a drug.”  You need to go, too.  Oh- one other thing- Peter Navarro says that ‘Mike Pence’s betrayal of President Trump on January 6 will be seen as the worst in history.’  We agree.
  62. 2021 Sunday D: The Minnesota Court of Appeals drops a motion to delay the start of former Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin.  Might as well get it over with, folks.  Meanwhile, in Connecticut, people remember slain Yale graduate student, shot to death by an unknown perp.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court clears the way for the extradition of an American father and son to Japan for trial.  The pair helped former Nissan Motor Company Chairman Carlos Ghosn so he could evade trial on financial misconduct charges.  Michael and Peter Taylor- the father and son- hid Ghosn in a box on a private jet back in 2019 and got him into Lebanon, a country with no extradition treaty with Japan.  They’re in trouble.
  63. 2021 Sunday E: The Pentagon is looking to automate its warplanes and warships.  Cool.  Meanwhile, Tesla announces that its electric semitruck will have a 500 KWH battery pack that should enable the truck to travel long distances following heavy loads.  Question for Elon Musk: what about the Hyperloop?  Would not the Hyperloop from one end of the country to the other be the fastest way to transport human beings, animals, and cargo?  Come on, man!   In other news, Toni Breidinger becomes the first woman of Arabic descent to compete in the Indy 500.  Although she came in 18th place, it’s still a great debut and she hopes others will follow in her footsteps. 
  64. 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 108,715,375 confirmed cases, +273,125, 2,397,312, confirmed deaths, +6,864, and 60,986,298 confirmed recoveries, +193,753.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,837,755 confirmed cases, up 12,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 488,674 confirmed deaths, UP 212, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly two weeks now.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 158,969 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  65. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,479,029 confirmed cases, 46,865 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 331,033 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Michigan: currently, they have 628,956 confirmed cases, 16,119 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 724,380 confirmed cases, 5,388 confirmed deaths, and 655,519 confirmed recoveries.
  66. 2021 Sunday H: Speaking of the Wuhan Virus, the U.S. has deep concerns over the origins of COVID-19 in communist China, especially after the World Health Organization has tried to protect their bosses in Beijing.  National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan is concerned about the WHO claiming there’s ‘insufficient data to link the Chi-Com Virus to the Chi-Coms’ as well as the fact Beijing continues trying to tie the U.S. Army to the crimes THEY committed.  One thing the WHO did admit to is that the number of cases in Wuhan were 500-percent higher than the Chi-Coms reported.    
  67. 2021 Sunday I: In Oregon, four people who have received all vaccinations for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu have now tested positive for the virus.  Uh, okay?   Across the country, about 38 million people have received all injections of the vaccine.  Meanwhile, an aide of New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo cover up the numbers of deaths in the Empire State’s nursing homes is now going to work for the Biden administration and work on the same flipping thing.  These people should be in prison.  Together.  Oh- the Obamacare exchanges are going to reopen but without additional funding so the site can hire additional staff with which to peddle the greatest boondoggle in the history of the United States.  In other fascinating news about COVID-19, since Philadelphia locked down in March 2020, there have been 2,200 shootings and 500-plus homicides.  This year, they have already seen 60 people killed.  They blame this on the Chinese Virus, you know, the “Panda Pandemic.”
  68. 2021 Sunday J: In other interesting news from around the world, the people of Myanmar are dealing with a crime wave not seen since the last time the junta of generals took control of the government.  The junta has emptied many thugs from the prisons and have inserted them into the crowds of peaceful protesters demanding the release of their elected leaders and a restoration of their democratically-elected government.  The freedom-loving people say the infiltrators cause violence so things can get out of control  which then allows the military to crack down even harder.  We hate to say this but it sounds sort of like what happened in the United States on January 6, 2021 when peaceful protesters walked to the Capitol and then mobs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter criminals stormed the Capitol, the one that NO one reinforced, even though weeks before, President Trump offered up to 10,000 National Guard troops.  Now we have walls around the Capitol and troops walking the streets.  Sounds rather like what’s going on in Yangon, Myanmar.

The time has arrived in which, the GOP must begin undergoing the purification process or become a wing of the Democratic Party

Although some might see this as a tremendous political bloodletting, we see it as a purification of the elected leaders of the country. Whether they admit to it or they don’t, these people are un-American, the only time they praise or defend the Constitution is when it suits them. As for the GOPPERS, the party requires purification, it requires jettisoning the losers and bums into the stratosphere.

WINTER SESSION 2021

BLOG POST #3,759 AT THE AICP-END

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 632

Happy NO Valentine’s Day in the Golden State…

Ventura, CA 93003, 02-14-2021 Sunday:  Good morning, friends, here’s another BIG HOLIDAY for restaurants that little poof in the governor’s mansion in Sacramento has taken off the table for restaurant owners, St. Valentine’s Day.  Granted, it’s all two-tops and the like but still, the amount of fine wine consumed, pricey dishes such as fresh lobster tails, Chateau Briand, crown rack of veal, lamb, or pork, Lobster Thermidor,[i] would keep us in the black for a couple of months. 

Likewise, other fabulous and famous classy dishes such as our succulent, hand-rubbed prime rib, our stuffed capon, our glorious pecan-encrusted fresh Alaskan halibut, and other big customer favorites, as well as tableside-prepared fiery desserts, we’d be rolling in the dough.  However, forced to do business with one-quarter capacity, and outdoor dining in tents with plexiglass in between the tables, we can barely stay afloat.  Hell, Uighurs in Xinjiang Province, communist China, or citizens of Myanmar have more freedom than people of California do.  It’s criminal…   

I am telling you, folks, Governor Newsom is a POS but it appears we have arrived at the near-magic number of 1.5 million signatures which is what is required to get the recall on the ballot. We are shooting for 1.8 million or more so we can weed out illegal signatures and any attempts by the governor’s minions to screw with this popular effort.   

The amazing thing is this: Governor Newsom recognizes he is in deep trouble, that the sucking muck of the Gray Davis swamp is around his neck, threatening to pull him under.  Suddenly, enfeebled old ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden rushes to his aid (if you can call a snail’s pace ‘rushing’) and says, “I like this guy,” the best endorsement the senile ‘president’ can proffer. 

Governor Gavin might as well have sought some of the House managers prosecuting President Donald J. Trump to help him because they are as popular as senile Old Joe is.  I mean, Jamie Raskin?  Come on, man, sobbing those alligator tears.[ii]  According to Dr. Alan Dershowitz, the congressman’s daddy avoided prison arguing First Amendment rights during the heated days of the 1970s when the Pentagon Papers dropped and Daniel Ellsberg was trying to alert the nation to the widening war into Cambodia. 

Then, there’s David Cicilline, a guy who looks ‘mobbed up’ and who Tucker Carlson said on Tuesday, I believe, was a mob attorney in Rhode Island before he stepped up his game and became a congressman.  I mean, he does look like a lowlife who would represent the arch-thug John Gotti or Nicky Scarfo, or some other Mafiosi bigwig.  Why do we have to listen to a thug like him lecture us about ‘violence?’

Then, there’s Teddy Lieu, another loser, this one from the Golden State whom one immediately dislikes when they see this smooth-talking goober droning on and on about how dangerous Donald Trump is.  Yet, this guy can sit behind the dais in House hearings and slander Candace Owens by playing selective comments she made and then trying to trip her up.  I mean, come on, man, if you are so secure in your ‘wokeness’ and your facts, then why do you have to rely on sleight of hand to make your points?  It’s embarrassing. 

What is even more embarrassing in this bogus impeachment melodrama is having a guy like Eric Swalwell among the house managers, a guy with clear ties to the Chi-Coms for having had a lengthy sexual relationship with a MSS intelligence agent, Christine Fang or ‘Fang-Fang’ as she’s known.  That guy was blubbering about the texts he sent his wife and baby on January 6, fearing the worst from HIS supporters- Antifa and Black Lives Matter- who were storming the Capitol Building allegedly at the behest of Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.[iii] 

Add to that the fact that Congressman Swalwell passed a loud cloud of gas on a national interview and you have a low IQ loser prosecuting someone far better than he is and it becomes a circus, nothing more than a circus, a kangaroo court, one of the biggest sham trials this country has ever seen.   

In fact, it has become such a global embarrassment that instead of targeting 47 Democrat members in the House in next year’s Mid-Term Elections, we are adding the House managers to the tally, too, which bumps the list up to 56 people. 

We also have RINOs to add to the list such as the bums who voted in the House to move the second impeachment forward plus the list of those who voted to oust Marjorie Taylor Greene.  The overall total seeing as how some of the Republicans- three to be exact- were in both groups, the number of people we are going to target in November 2022 is 

Although some might see this as a tremendous political bloodletting, we see it as a purification of the elected leaders of the country.  Whether they admit to it or they don’t, these people are un-American, the only time they praise or defend the Constitution is when it suits them.  As for the GOPPERS, the party requires purification, it requires jettisoning the losers and bums into the stratosphere. 

We also have at least seven GOP senators who- when they come up again- must be sent after their House colleagues into the great unknown.   Among them are Mittens, “Cocaine Mitch,” Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Ben Sasse, and it appears Bill Cassidy.  As for Pat Toomey, why not recall that scumbag NOW, Pennsylvania?

See you in six months.  Thanks for joining me.

We have another CD to offer you today, the first and practically ONLY solo CD by Grace Slick, one that came out on January 04, 1974, “Manhole.”  This is a soundtrack to a movie of the same name and while someone unnoticed at the time, it still deserves honorable mention.  The great thing about the San Francisco musicians is that so many of her contemporaries whether from the Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and others from a variety of bands, groups, and friends all participate and make the album unique.  We urge you to seek this CD out at Amazon.com as well, so you can pick it up along with the preceding CD—you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We have never stopped making the classics even though many modern chefs frown upon it or laugh at us for maintaining Classical Cuisine.  Folks, there are still people who enjoy the classic cooking of old and we have made our bread and butter off doing it with abandon.

[ii] Chef Lilah suggested in Thursday’s Twitter feed that a big slice of raw Spanish onion clutched in your hanky would help pull those big sobbing tears out of your eyes.  Add that to the fact that your Pinocchio-like nose seemed to grow bigger from Wednesday to Thursday because YOUR lies were so blatant.  What a loser.

[iii] Eric- did you send any syrupy love texts to Christine Fang, the love of your life, you pathetic bought-and-paid for Chi-Com-loving scumbag?
