  51. 2018 Thursday: Following the departure of Jacob Zuma, Cyril Ramaphosa takes the oath and becomes the new president of South Africa.  The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announces it’s blocking a group of Chi-Com ‘investors’ seeking to buy the Chicago Stock Exchange.  Thank God Joe Biden’s not the president. Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee backs the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act which will correct injustices judges inflicted on tens of thousands of offenders who were first-time offenders, minorities, and/or poor.  President Donald J. Trump brought this amazing miracle into being along with Kim Kardashian and others concerned about the travesties of justice.
  52. 2019 Friday: Driving his enemies insane, President Donald J. Trump declares a national emergency as wave after wave of illegal alien caravans attempt to storm the southern U.S. border so he can divert funds and begin construction of the southern border wall.  Meanwhile, after Amazon announced it was going to build its new HQ in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took them to task, not understanding that in order to get something, you give something.  Anyhow, Amazon announces it’s a done deal- they’re going elsewhere- to Virginia.  Friendlier business climate there.
  53. 2020 Saturday: The COVID-19 growing global pandemic reaches into Europe now.  An 80-year-old Chinese ‘tourist’ dies in France from the Wuhan Flu.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Australian officials cancel a visit to Great Britain due to the Brits allowing Huawei to build their 5-G network.  Australia like the United States wants nothing to do with Huawei because of Chinese Communist Party’s use of its electronics to eavesdrop on everyone around the world.  Think TikTok.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, Houthis raise a big fuss over Saudi airstrikes that claim the lives of at least 30 ‘civilians.’ 
  54. 2021 Monday:  We heard early today that there is ‘bipartisan support’ for an independent commission to delve into the causes of the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots when Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi knows the precise cause: being in league with Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs who infiltrated the Trump supporters to pull off one of the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS in the history of American politics.  Add to that the waving off of proffered 10,000 National Guard troops AHEAD of January 6 and you know all you need to know.  It was a set-up hence why they lie about the death of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick, why we don’t know the results of his autopsy and why they cremated him as quickly as they did.  Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has much for which to answer, folks, which is why she is appointing an ‘independent commission’ (yeah, right) to look into the RIOTS.  Speaking of Officer Brian Sicknick, the New York Times quietly updates the truth on his death saying it most likely was in response to some kind of irritant sprayed in his face such as bear repellant.
  55. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden announces he will speak at a virtual G 7 summit on the ‘Panda Pandemic,’ aka the Chinese Virus, the Wuhan Virus, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Yellow Fever 2020-2021.  Keep a close eye on the screen to see how they manipulate the ‘speech’ by Biden so as to see the earpiece telling him what to say and do.  Word of warning- Joe, don’t stick your wife’s finger in your mouth.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues dismantling the extremely necessary Trump Era policy of illegal alien asylum speakers remaining in Mexico.  Now, they can enter the U.S. and begin popping out one anchor baby after another.  Diabolical, Joe.  In other ‘Joe Biden news,’ Joe is driving ahead (well, those behind him) to get our guns from us and to eliminate our ability to get them.  Not going to happen, Joe.
  56. 2021 Monday B: Dick Morris speaks out on the Democrats’ ‘bloodlust’ in pursuing Donald J. Trump.  It’s because they have nothing other than “Trump Glue” to hold the Democrats together.  What a shame.  Meanwhile, reputed Chi-Com intelligence agent, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell makes some stupid comment about God’s gender.  Thought you folks were supposed to avoid all gender-related terms on the floor of the House?  Hypocrite.  Speaking of dimwitted Democrats, Orthodox rabbis are calling on House Democratic Party leadership to remove Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar from her position as vice chairperson on the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee.   We have an alternative nickname for Ms. Omar- Ilhan “From the Rivers to the Sea, Palestine will be Free” Omar.   In other left-wing news, Puerto Rico is demanding Congress to consider statehood for the leftist island territory.  They say ‘Congress has a moral responsibility’ to do so.
  57. 2021 Monday C: In the New York City mayoral race, Andrew Yang has hit the necessary threshold in fund-raising to qualify for matching funds.  Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to sink as the effort to remove the POS via recall has surpassed the necessary 1.5 million voter signatures with which to throw him out of office.   In the Empire State, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continues falling in his approval ratings with his critics on all sides of the aisle going after him, accusing him and his bozo brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo, of showboating on TV while thousands of elderly seniors in rest homes were dying of the Chi-Vi due to his horrendous mishandling of the Beijing Bug.  People are so angry with this guy, the state Assembly is considering stripping him of his emergency powers. 
  58. 2021 Monday D: In other U.S. news, the Minneapolis City Council now wants to RE-FUND the police department because everything is going to hell in a handbasket as are many other left-wing cities and towns.  Meanwhile, the Dems are launching an all-out campaign to get Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton out of office.  It shows how effective he is.   Elsewhere, Republican Congressmen Devin Nunes, California, and Jim Jordan, Ohio, demand that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ‘fess up’ on what she knew and when she knew it about security conditions at the Capitol on January 6.  People want answers as to WHY we still have a militarized capitol with fences and troops when they should be deployed along  the southern border.
  59. 2021 Monday E: Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz says that ‘Governor Ron DeSantis would make one hell of a presidential candidate one day.’  Next, following former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s stupid comments regarding Trump’s support among the GOP voters, Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Donald Trump remains the most potent force among the Grand Old Party.’  Speaking of Ambassador Haley, even anti-Trumpers are outraged at her stupid remarks.  Her stock as a presidential candidate has fallen to outhouse levels like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Mitt Romney, Bill Cassidy, Ben Sasse, and other dimwits.   Meanwhile, the GOP plans on trying Joe Biden to the Chi-Coms in every chance they get so as to increase the numbers of wins in 2022 and again in 2024.   Moving on, Pennsylvania GOP Congressman Guy Reschenthaler says, ‘If you don’t think Cancel Culture isn’t coming for you next, wake up!’   In other news, the fact that vandals assaulted the home of Trump attorney Michael Van Der Veen proves just how effective he was in defending his client.  Some maggot scrawled, “TRAITOR,” on his home.
  60. 2021 Monday E: Big Tech now is attacking Pro-Life news services.  Big Tech strikes again. Speaking of Tech, we now know that the Chi-Coms- good friends of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden used secret microchips installed in U.S. computers to spy on US.  How nice.  We should have nuked them when we had the opportunity.  Next, the president of Microsoft says the SolarWinds hack was biggest and most sophisticated in history.  Elsewhere, Parler has managed to return to the Internet via using ‘independent technology.’ 
  61. 2021 Monday F: Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the “U.S. supports militants in Iraq who have executed members of Turkey’s armed forces.  What’s up with that, Joe?  Next, Iran tests a short-range ‘smart missile’ with a radius of about 186 miles.  Elsewhere, Congressman  Michael Waltz, R-FL, urges a boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.  We concur- NO freedom-loving country should participate in the Chi-Com-held Olympics- it’s akin to participating in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin.  F— them. 
  62. 2021 Monday G: Severe winter weather is rampaging through Texas where power outages are ongoing as they are in at least 13 other states.  We hope they’re not using any Chi-Com equipment or software. Refineries in Texas are being forced to shut down due to the weather.  In other news, Ken Cuccinelli, former immigration bigwig in the Trump administration says that Joe Biden’s immigration policies are going to overwhelm the country as illegals are flooding in across the southern border.  We hope troops begin laying minefields along the border to stop this tidal wave.  Elsewhere, John Bachman on Newsmax TV says of the Joe Biden, ‘it’s hard to claim to be a friend of the working class when your policies are rapidly leading to their demise.’  Finally, it’s interesting to note that former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s BIG MISTAKE in using the nuclear option to confirm judicial appointees back in 2013 could see impeachment being used by the GOP to destroy numerous left-wing Democrats in coming years.  We can only hope.  
  63. 2021 Monday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,067,558 confirmed cases, +313,837, 2,405,546, confirmed deaths, +6,773, and 61,277,452 confirmed recoveries, +245,977.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,939,592 confirmed cases, up 32,738 from yesterday’s reporting, 490,672 confirmed deaths, UP 833, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus 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 160,802 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.
  64. 2021 Monday 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: 3,484,984 confirmed cases, 47,055 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: 331,164 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wisconsin: currently, they have 607,213 confirmed cases, 6,748 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 730,293 confirmed cases, 5,414 confirmed deaths, and 670,010 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2021 Monday J: In other news related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the World Health Organization clears the Astrazeneca COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use around the world.   Meanwhile, Brexit leader Nigel Farage says the world is dealing with a virus, NOT the Chi-Vi but the WOKE VIRUS, one that is sweeping the world and one that we absolutely must crush before it crushes us.  Elsewhere, noted investigative journalist Peter Schweizer says that BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris must get their families under control if they wish to keep things on the up-and-up (which they don’t- at least in our views).
  66. 2021 Monday K: In the African nation of Guinea, health authorities declare an Ebola epidemic.  Meanwhile 58 mostly Western nations unite to oppose detainment of their nationals or detainment of foreign nationals to gain leverage over one nation or the other.  The Chi-Coms do this, the Russians do this, the Iranians really do this, it’s horrible and it must end.  Elsewhere, a rocket attack in the lovely nation of Iraq kills a contractor and wounds a U.S. servicemember.  Finally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledges differences between Joe Biden and himself but remains hopeful the senile old fool in the White House will give him a ring.  Don’t count on it, prime minister, you and your country must unite with ALL Arab countries to oppose Iran.
  67. 2021 Monday L: County GOP officials in the Pennsylvania counties of Clarion, Centre, Lawrence, Washington, and York censure Senator Pat Toomey who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump this past Saturday in the bogus second impeachment trial.  Ask him to retire.  NOW. Next, UPDATE on New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo- he is NOW blaming the vast numbers of Chinese Virus deaths on health care and rest home workers but oh, no, NOT me or my policies.  Andrew, a famous Democrat once said, “The buck stops here,” meaning with YOU- murdering f**k.  Noted journalist Bill O’Reilly says that ‘Cuomo is doing rope-a-dope’ to try to cover his ass and to evade punishment that is heading his way.  Elsewhere, the NATO chief says that nations that send troops to various missions should not have to foot all the costs of doing so but that the organization should help.  Next, the soon-to-be-deployed NASA new Mars rover is going to search out signs of ancient life.   Finally, in Palm Beach, as President Donald J. Trump returns from a golf outing, tens of thousands of his supporters lined the streets holding signs and celebrating how much they love the 45th president.  Speaker Pelosi: Trump ain’t going nowhere.

Gender dysphoria is not the cause du jour like meatloaf on Mondays, taco Tuesdays, Beef Bourguignonne on Wednesdays, Swiss steak on Thursdays, salmon cakes on Friday, or God knows what on weekends are. It’s the lives of real people, folks, not some abstract, otherworldly society of misfits.

WINTER SESSION 2021

BLOG POST #3,760 AT THE AICP-END

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 631

Please don’t try to tell us that something ‘abnormal’ is ‘normal’

Los Angeles, CA 93064, 02-15-2021 Monday:  Good morning, folks.  Boy, were we disappointed on Election Day, right?  But I am not going to delve into that deeply suspicious turn of events because to do so is to suffer cancelation by the unknown entities spying on everyone across the Web.  I have my doubts, deep doubts as to the election’s legitimacy, its fairness, and the openness of what transpired on Election Day because being as old as I am and having seen Joseph R. Biden in politics as far back as when he was a freshman welp, I can tell you, he only had  limited regional popularity, not the massive national approval his supporters now swear he has.  Eighty-million-plus Americans voted for this man even though he won fewer counties, lost both Ohio and Florida, and none of us saw him for weeks at a time?[i]  Still, we won’t go there, we have something else to discuss today, something Chef Elvin alluded to on Friday: transgender issues, mainly sports.  First, however, I must lay in some groundwork…     

First, a Preamble:

I can still recall a time when Democrats were staunch supporters and defenders of women and girls.  They were behind women[ii] at all levels, supporters of NOW- the National Organization of Women- and bellowed about the Equal Rights Amendment, something that to this day has not yet occurred, although I am surprised that Donald J. Trump did not push to make it a concrete reality during his time in office because he would have had a halo around his head from here to eternity (even though the Dems would do their best to cover it up such an amazing achievement). 

Still, women were an integral part of the Democratic Party’s foundation just as black Americans were.  Like BIG LABOR, black folks and women enjoyed a seat at the Democrats’ table of power, the one around which, they sat and hashed out the issues of the day, erecting the various planks on one election’s platform after another. 

Somehow, abortion became a ‘women’s issue,’ one that I believe corrupted women’s issues because of the emphasis on Pro-Choice (i.e., Pro-Death) v. Pro-Life.  President Bill Clinton said that abortion should be ‘safe, legal, and rare,’ whereas now, in our throwaway society, the unborn at all stages of gestation seem to be on the chopping block (no pun intended), the ultimate throwaway, no one seems to use precautions any longer.  

It’s as if a girl taking the pill (or other form of contraception) or a boy employing a condom  to prevent unwanted pregnancies is too difficult to consider even though contraception surrounds us.  After all, it was an integral part of the Affordable Care Act, something government mandated ALL health care insurers provide at no cost.  Why won’t they utilize it?    

At some point, however, women began to be undermined.  During the days of Barack Obama, a major push to normalize all-things gay suddenly took precedence over women and blacks.[iii]  First we got gay marriage, in a few states and then BOOM- across the entire nation.  That horse is out of the barn.  Then, it morphed into transsexuals, suddenly, we had to overturn normalcy to enfranchise less than one-percent of the country’s population to put them at the head of the heap of special interests groups.  

Suddenly, men claiming to be women could enter the sanctity of women’s bathrooms, in public, in schools, and everywhere else and sidle up to our wives and daughters.  Suddenly, people with gender identity issues or worse, perverts, could gain closer proximity to young girls, teenage girls, and women.  It’s as if the Democrats took black Americans and women and said told them, ‘you were the ‘causes’ of yesterday but no more, we are moving on by bringing in LGBTQIA+ folks as well as illegal aliens.’[iv]

One of the biggest insults to black Americans is that ‘gays are the same as blacks, have suffered the same at the hands of an incredibly evil, puritanical society.’  Well, gee whiz.  What they fail to see is that unlike every other ‘minority’ in the country- women, blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, and the like is that they are born this way and cannot change their stripes.   

Au contraire, according to them, they cannot be something or someone else (although IF one declares him, her, or itself to be something, we are now supposed to unequivocally accept that) whereas- until the so-called ‘gay gene’ is discovered by science (and you know they are burning the midnight oil to uncover this elusive bit of determinant biological data),, homosexuality seems to be more a matter of choice than it is a matter of birth.[v]

While I realize I might be canceled for saying that, scientifically, no evidence yet exists to say otherwise.  There is nothing to say why one is heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, attracted to children, inanimate objects, animals, their hand, or whatever else.  There is nothing to say why one person can play both sides of the field while others are relegated to one side of the field.  Fifty shades of gray and all, right? 

I am heading into a discussion on the matter of allowing transsexuals to participate in scholastic sports, playing on the teams with which they CLAIM to identify.  Science does tell us that unless males get snipped and undergo complete transformation from boy to girl, they are always going to have an unfair advantage over girls.  Hence, why chicks with dicks[vi] should not be playing in female sports.

Moreover, in an era of equality in everything (supposedly), why are girls being thrown under the bus to favor a teeny-tiny minority of what normal people would consider abnormal behavior, behavior at one time we would have sought help for our kids rather than celebrating it? 

Gender dysphoria is not the cause du jour like meatloaf on Mondays, taco Tuesdays, Beef Bourguignonne on Wednesdays, Swiss steak on Thursdays, salmon cakes on Friday, or God knows what on weekends are.[vii]  It’s the lives of real people, folks, not some abstract, otherworldly society of misfits.   

We are an accepting people but please, don’t try to force the vast majority of Americans to accept something abnormal as normal when it simply is not.  We will continue tomorrow with more of my theories here.  Please stick around and join me.   When I conclude, you can tell me what YOU think.

God bless.

The Jefferson Starship’s next CD, “Red Octopus,” came out in 1975 and this CD was the one that put them over the top for good.  Marty Balin was back with the band now full-time and the band was as hot as they could ever get.  The hit single, “Miracles,” was on the Top 40 for weeks on end, you could not turn on either AM or FM radio without hearing the song along with several other cuts from this CD.  This is one we promote as if you have not yet introduced the ears dangling on your head to the sounds of the Jefferson Starship, you, my friend, are denying yourself the music of the ages.  We will never have another 1960s-1970s, that is for sure so why not indulge said ears in a piece of blessed joy, there is no band better than this one.  You can go to Amazon.com and grab this CD in the format, the condition, and the price that is right for you so why not go there now and get it?

ENDNOTES:


[i] Much like his ‘hand-picked’ vice president, the ‘ever-popular’ Kamala Harris, he’s never gotten out of the early rounds and moved on up the ladder in the primary battles.  I think 2020 was his, uh, fourth crack, his fourth bite at the apple?  And you’re telling me that Joseph R. Biden- a man whom we lovingly refer to here at the blog as “Pro-China Joe”, won MORE votes than any president in history?  That even though fewer minorities voted for him and more went to Trump and even though Republicans in the House lost not a single seat and almost broke even in the Senate that Joe somehow smoked President Donald J. Trump?  But we won’t go there…

[ii] Joe especially!  Just kidding.

[iii] There are many rumors as to Barack Obama’s sexuality and he did allude to taking a walk on the wild side in his first self-celebratory book or could it be the second one?  It’s one of the first two, I don’t remember nor do I give a flying f**k.

[iv] There are evident reasons for this: the gay community as a whole has lots of money whereas importing illegal aliens has a couple of reasons: first, they are ‘replacements,’ not necessarily for white Americans but for the numbers of babies they have aborted which mostly are on their side and also because they hate the fabric of the country and want to force people who will never assimilate or become American down our throats.  The worst communities devastated by illegal alien imports are BLACK communities.

[v] Who doesn’t recall Dr. Ben Carson, back in 2015 or early 2016 being pilloried for having said, “homosexuality is a choice.”  He pointed out that straight people can enter prison and come out gay.  It was simply an observation of which, everyone has always been aware.  Sure, there are a slim few who spring from the cradle this way just as there are others who experiment as young people and then remain on the hetero path as they grow older.  It’s not an insult, it’s not slander, it simply is a statement of truth and people need to unclench their butt cheeks so they can get their panties back into place.  We deal in TRUTH here just as we do OPINION.  People have a right to express their views, whether they are correct, half-correct, or incorrect.  No honest scientist will say there is just ONE WAY no more than there is a cause of Climate Change.  This is why science exists, so people can debate issues until science finds the answer.

[vi] As everyone knows who lives in Los Angeles, ‘exotics’ as they are referred to can be found in any club lining the Sunset Strip or on the various side streets.  That’s our city.

[vii] Back in the old days of American cuisine, every coffee shop and restaurant had specials geared for each day of the week.  Take for instance, Basque restaurants, they were really good at this and my family and I have done our best to sustain the tradition.
