Trump to ‘make America great again, again!’  Meanwhile, reports continue to surface that say President Trump upon winning re-election on November 3 will fire both the corrupt director of the FBI, Christopher Wray, and Deep State apparatchik CIA Director Gina Haspel.  Both of them should have been terminated long ago but look for it to occur on November 4.  Elsewhere, rapper 50 Cent retracts his endorsement of President Trump following his ex-girlfriend, Chelsea Handler, a bleach blond, saying he ‘ain’t black if he supports Trump’ and that she would throw another round of poontang on him if he retracted his endorsement.’  Dude, you can muff anywhere.

  62. 2020 Monday E: The Washing Post writes that ‘we must treat the Hunter Biden laptop story as a foreign intelligence operation even though it’s probably not.’  Wow.  And they claim Russia ‘owns Donald Trump.’  Friends, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, and the Iranians own former Vice President Joe Biden.  Dire news for Biden-Harris: Rasmussen has Trump’s job approval rating at 52-percent.

  65. 2020 Monday H: The U.S. Senate votes to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be the nation’s 115th Associate Supreme Court justice by a vote of 52-48.  Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, called this the ‘darkest day in American history’ and vowed revenge when Democrats hold power. Other Democrat senators like Richard “Dick” aka “Hobgoblin” Blumenthal and Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, she of phony Indian heritage vow ‘they’ll get even’ especially since President Trump did not ‘honor’ the purported dying wishes of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who wanted another president to fill her seat.  Folks, she could have retired under President Obama but believed- erroneously so- that the fix was in for Hillary Rodham Clinton and the first female president would nominate her successor.  Wah, wah, wah.  Ah, well, congratulations, Associate Justice Barrett.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court will not permit a mail-in ballot extension in the state of Wisconsin.

  79. 2021 Tuesday L: JOE BIDEN’S DAILY DISASTER- Joe Biden was campaigning with Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe today in Virginia and hardly anyone- including Joe, himself- was wearing a mask.  What the hell is up with this?  Wear masks when you want to club political enemies into submission and leave them at home when you are with crowds you feel are your supporters?  How many times did you cough snot onto your hands and then gladhand everyone around you, Joe?  Speaking of the Virginia gubernatorial race, “Maggot” McAuliffe and GOP opponent Glenn Youngkin currently are in a 48.3-percent tie.  Whoa.  RNC chairperson Ronna McDaniel quipped today that ‘Joe Biden is going to hinder McAuliffe, not help him.’  (Note- we hope she’s right).  Also speaking of feeble Joe Biden, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, said of the faux president that he’s the ‘GOP’s best help to win in 2022.’
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- The Biden regime says that nuclear talks between the United States and Iran are in the ‘critical phase,’ so says the U.S. State Department.   Next, the Biden regime smacked down President Donald J. Trump’s invocation of executive privilege regarding documents connected to the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  That’s Joe Biden for you.   Next, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra lectured unvaccinated Americans that YOU cannot be selfish.  Secretary Becerra, STFU.
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: POLITICAL NEWS I- U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, slammed Facebook for their continued censorship of conservatives.  Speaking of conservatives, Eric Bolling of Newsmax says that Fox News Channel abandoned conservatives a long time ago.  Next, Congressman Ralph Norman, R-SC 5th congressional district, has put forward a bill that will help alleviate the suffering of Texas as they contend with being overrun by millions of illegal aliens.  Elsewhere, well-known (RICH) communist, Senator Bernie Sanders, CPUSA-VT, says that ‘Medicare expansion is a must.’  What?  We thought Obamacare was the answer to healthcare in the United States?
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: BIG TECH NEWS- Facebook is investing $10 billion into the Metaverse.  They claim members will be able to commune with 1 billion or more people and that money will be flowing like water into their pockets.  We shall see.  However, if they continue censoring people such as the president of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro who shared his views on COVID-19, then we say ‘f**k them.’  Facebook’s stooge YouTube yanked down Bolsonaro’s video because it contained ‘COVID-19 misinformation.’  WHO THE F**K ARE YOU?
  83. 2021 Tuesday P: NASA, SPACE, AND UFO NEWS-  In what is utterly amazing news- but expected- NASA believes it has discovered the first planet outside the Milky Way, a planet in the ‘Whirlpool Galaxy.’  Man, we believe planets are around every star and are as common as grains of sand on the beach.  This planet is 28 million light years away from our Solar System if you can believe that.  Incredible, absolutely incredible.
  84. 2021 Tuesday O: SPORTS NEWS I- In Game 1 of the 2021 World Series, the visiting Atlanta Braves (96-75) beat the favored Houston Astros (100-71) by a final score of 6-2 to take a 1-0 series lead.
  85. 2021 Tuesday P: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-POWERBALL MONDAY NIGHT DRAW- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #1706 with a jackpot of $20 million up for grabs: 06, 14, 19, 56, 62, and Mega 09.  Out of 48,909 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $2,694,898.  The winning ticket was sold at Jerry’s Liquor in Sun Valley, CA 91352.
  86. 2021 Tuesday Q: This is where we were ONE YEAR AGO TODAY: as always, we encourage everyone to stick around to uncover- with us- whatever the flipping Chi-Coms and their Democratic monkeys are up to today.  We all know they’re hard at work seeking to steal our elections.

Fairport Convention was evolving yet again what with the Fotheringay portion of the band- Sandy Denny, Jerry Donahue, and Trevor Lucas- bolting ship leaving Dave Swarbrick, Dave Pegg, and Bruce Rowland to steer the ship forward.  Thus, we have an album credited to ‘Fairport featuring Dave Swarbrick,’ “Gottie O’ Geer” (May 25, 1976).  Swarbrick wanted to do a solo album, but the record company said, “Nope, you owe us another Fairport Convention album which gives us this hybrid effort.  Anyhow, the band features (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars), (3) Bruce Rowland (drums, percussion, keyboards, backing vocals), as well as Simon Nichol (guitars), Robert Palmer (vocals and harmonica), and loads of other folks.  As you know, we at the AICPENDBLOG.COM are completists and that means we have to own every shred, every scrap of music and so we own this.  We encourage everyone to go out and give this one a good listen; once you do that, we are sure that you will agree with us that this is a lovely album.  Please, check it out now.

Author: Chef Murphy MacDougal, ACF-CWC, CCM

I began my career as a young chef in the kitchen back in 1975, earlier than that. I apprenticed underneath my father and spent six years working for him in his British-Irish restaurant in Fresno, California. I later moved to Frazier Park, California, and spent quite a few years working in the area and that is where I met Stinkbug. Anyhow, I am now working at a country club over on the coast near San Luis Obispo. Please note: this is my pen name and any photos of me are simply outdated photos adopted for maintaining my privacy. Above, you see the caricature created for me by Bakersfield street artist, the amazing Simone. We have gone this route because of increasing threats against the blog and its members.
