Anyone who watched President Donald J. Trump in action tonight in Cullman, Alabama, knows that it is a matter of time before he returns to the White House. The Democrats and the RINOs should be very, very afraid…viva Trump!

Watching the uprisings in the two biggest cities in Australia against their crazy government’s harsh lockdown orders is damned heartening folks. Free people will only take so much and when you have pushed them as far as they can go, the pushback becomes too powerful to stop.

  7. 2021 Saturday F: AFGHANISTAN CRISIS AND COLLAPSE NEWS- A new report says that back in June, senile Joe Biden told U.S. allies that Kabul could hold out for the foreseeable future.  It took the Taliban less than a week to overrun the country, arrive at the gates of Kabul, and then infest the city.   Joe Biden is also considering demanding public airlines to begin flying Afghan refugees wherever the government decides to send them, FREE.  Meanwhile, the evacuation out of Kabul is becoming problematic as ISIS is descending on the airport.  God know what could happen next, especially when the U.S. embassy staff still on scene is warning Americans NOT to come to Kabul for evacuation.  WTF?
  8. 2021 Saturday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Folks, today is Day No. 150 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xii] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 57 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $768,303,104.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $255,014,928,384.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,613,698.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,613,700.   (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Governor Doug Ducey, R-AZ, is extending the deployment of the Copper State’s National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border to help U.S. Border Patrol combat the invasion of illegal aliens.
  9. 2021 Saturday H: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS I- The people of Australia are growing angrier with their government over the harsh lockdown measures imposed on the population by a tyrannical regime over COVID-19.  Protesters clashed with law enforcement in two of the country’s biggest cities.  Good for you, people, good for you.
  10. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- As various left-wing-controlled school districts in the Sunshine State continue trying to buck NO MASK MANDATE in the state’s schools, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis gives the schools an ultimatum: respect the ban or lose funding.  In other news, comedic hack Seth Meyers says the “GOP is lying about masks.”  Seth: The Red States are leading the way in recovering from the COVID crisis so STFU.  Elsewhere, the University of Virginia has disenrolled 238 students who have refused to get the Chi-Com Virus vaccines.  Good for the students.
  11. 2021 Saturday J: PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP NEWS- President Donald J. Trump endorsed former Silver State Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Republican, for U.S. senator.  Meanwhile, President Trump held a massive rally in Cullman, Alabama, to promote Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, is his bid for the open U.S. Senate seat when Senator Richard Shelby retires next year.  At least 15,000-20,000 people were inside and another 20,000-to-30,000 were outside.  Amazing.  President Trump also said that Joe Biden owes the American people an apology for the unnecessary chaos occurring in Afghanistan. 
  12. 2021 Saturday K: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Since “Chi-Com Joe” Biden is taking so much heat for the disaster occurring in Afghanistan, the senile regime leader cancels his trip home to Delaware for the weekend which means, next week, he will be combative, disrespectful, and unstable.  Going to be interesting to watch.   Speaking of the feeble dictator, his poll numbers continue tanking as new cases of the Wuhan Virus Crisis continue rising.
  13. 2021 Saturday L: POLITICAL NEWS I- Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, is sponsoring a bill with which to convene hearings on the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Meanwhile, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says the brief released by the Capitol Hill Police Department is a ‘panic, manic legal defense of unbridled secrecy surrounding the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.’  According to Mr. Fitton, there was a lot of communications going back and forth between U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district and higher-ups in the Capitol Hill Police Department.  Friends, we can make a pretty good guess as to what was going on and all of it was to launch a FALSE FLAG OPERATION to try to destroy President Donald J. Trump.  WE know.
  14. 2021 Saturday M: POLITICAL NEWS II- The Chamber of Commerce is running ads for moderate Democrats fighting to separate the ‘infrastructure bill’ from the ‘budget reconciliation’ BS bill House leader “Mumbles” Pelosi is fighting to shove through to bankrupt the country.  In other BS news, Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy signed a bill that preventing New Jersey state prisons from contracting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  What a POS.  Next, the U.S. State Department reports that it has been hit by a cyberattack.  Why are we not surprised?  Finally, former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan says ‘it’s not surprising that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘missing’ on Afghanistan.
  15. 2021 Saturday N: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS I- The U.S. Supreme Court- ever fearful of the Biden regime packing the body- has put a hold on lower court rulings to reinstate the “Remain in Mexico” policy for the millions of illegal aliens swamping the country all requesting ‘asylum.’
  16. 2021 Saturday O: MILESTONES AND PERSONAL INTEREST STORIES- Radio talk show host Phil Valentine lost his battle with COVID-19 today.  When the famed conservative came down with the ‘VID, liberals laughed and mocked him because he believed in personal choice when it came to wearing masks and/or getting the vaccine.  They are probably doing the jig now.  God bless you, Mr. Valentine.  Elsewhere, famed country music performer Tom T. Hall is dead at age 85.  Next, the Reverend Jesse Jackson and his wife entered the hospital today as both tested positive for the Kung Flu.
  17. 2021 Saturday P: NEW YORK STATE NEWS- Soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov declared a state of emergency today as Hurricane Henri approaches the region.  Reporters asked the loser as to WHY he didn’t hand off to Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul who will become the first female governor of the Empire State on Tuesday?  The ‘governor’ hemmed and hawed as to how he was doing ‘his duty.’  Loser, just go.  NOW.
  18. 2021 Saturday Q: TEXAS STATE NEWS-  The Texas voting laws now are on the fast track since the fugitive Democrats returned home after 33 days in Washington, D.C.  They fled there to stop the necessary quorum from being formed and only came home when the courts said that Texas law enforcement authorities could arrest them.
  19. 2021 Saturday R: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3588 what with a $10 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 12, 22, 36, 39, 59, and Mega 04.  Out of 91,589 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had five numbers BUT NO Mega for a prize of $33,286.  The winning ticket was sold at Texas Liquor in National City, CA 91950.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #874 with a jackpot of $290 million up for grabs: 16, 28, 36, 39, 59, and Powerball 04.  Out of 101,268 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR plus the Powerball for a prize of $18,305 apiece.

Author: Chef Hector Santanamos "El Chilote" De Soto CEC-ACF

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog. I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse. I was a young cook back in the early 1960's when I commenced my culinary career. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug. El Chilote writes from Shafter, California. El Chilote is a moderate Democrat. Contact me at or
