  55. 2020 Sunday: Following last night’s violent riots and deadly shooting in Portland, Oregon, law enforcement officials and the crackpot Mayor Ted Wheeler take questions from the reporters.  The mayor says he wants to ‘end violence’ in his city and claims that he will ‘take help from anyone to end the violence in his city,’ violence he and his far-left, socialist buddies seem to want to continue around the clock.  At the same time, Mayor Wheeler blasts President Donald J. Trump for comments he made about the crappy job the city’s highest civil servant for being such a worthless putz.   He claims the president has created ‘hate and division.’  Meanwhile, Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf says ‘all options’ are on the table for ending the violence afflicting major and mid-sized American cities facing increased violence on their streets, violence we allege the Chi-Coms are financing through their lackeys in the Democratic Party, what we now call the Democratic-Socialist Party of America, the DSPA.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden pops out of his hidey hole and denounces the violence afflicting the United States.  Uh, okay Joe, okay.  Finally, a shooting outside a pancake house in Chicago today claims one life and wounds several others.  It was a drive-by shooting in which an SUV pulled by the foodservice establishment and opened fire.  Democratic Catchphrase of the Day: “Trump is dividing the nation!”  Reprobate Congressman Adam Schiff, D-CA, tells Dana Bash, aka Old Horse Face, that “Donald Trump is fanning the flames of violence.”  Hmmm…
  56. 2020 Sunday A: Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe informs Maria Bartiromo on the Fox News Channel that although ‘Russia remains a problem, the real threat emanates from communist China,’ land of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The fact that the Democrats continue dismissing the threat of communist China while constantly braying about ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ as the imminent threat tells observant readers and contributors that what the Democrats claim others are doing is what they, themselves, are guilty of doing which means the Dems are colluding with the Chi-Coms to defeat Donald Trump and to deliver the United States into the hands of Chairman Xi.  Next, in the United States, we have arrived at a startling statistic: so far this year, 37 police officers have been killed in the line of duty and another 700 injured. 
  57. 2020 Sunday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days.  Sorry.
  58. 2021 Monday: Unlike my colleague, Chef Fritz, who antagonized the Chinese last week, I am going to remain neutral in assigning all blame for global and U.S. problems.  I would prefer to get along with them.  Stick with me throughout this week and we shall see what we shall see…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

A workaholic, Ian Anderson was always involved in one musical project after another and thus, we have “Jethro Tull- the String Quarter with the Carducci String Quartet.”  Joined by a quartet consisting of two violins, a viola, and a cello, Ian Anderson adds vocals, flutes, guitars, and mandolins.  The orchestra runs through a dozen of Jethro Tull’s greatest tunes and thus we have a monumental effort that everyone can and will enjoy.  We encourage everyone to visit whatever site it is they choose so as to get the album in the form and condition you desire.  You will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[ii] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig, Mick Abrahams, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Wild Turkey, and Paris on Monday, May 24, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We are still in the process of presenting the music so please, join us at WordPress.  We hope you will.

[iv] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[v] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

I suspect Gropin’ Joe won’t make it to November which will mean a realignment of the ‘Harris-Biden ticket’ to the ‘Sanders-Harris ticket’ which it’s been all along

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

Author: Chef Gervais "The Krink" Krinkelmeier

Our personal identity and security are now very important so I, like everyone else at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day has had local Bakersfield, California, up-and-coming street artist, Simone, create some portraits of me. The problem is in this hyper age of partisanship and the far left going bonkers, we have had to cut back on how much of ourselves we share with the readership. Sad to say, it sucks especially for someone such as me who lives in a small community and owns a business. I have been in professional foodservice for a long, long time and have known Stinkbug for an equally long time. My name is pronounced KRONK-L-MYER but everyone calls me "The Krink."
