They approach within 400 yards, bringing the last remaining Soviet ferry across the river under direct fire.

Trump for re-election as do all law enforcement unions.  Speaking of Trump, he promises the ‘best stimulus package’ following his re-election.   Finally, the home price index is up +5.7.

  56. 2020 Tuesday D: We learn today that following a police shooting of a violent black man armed with a large knife in Philadelphia last night, 30 officers were injured in the subsequent mob violence that erupted out of nowhere.  The cops arrived at a home where a domestic violence event was in progress and on police cameras, the suspect stormed out the house, knife held high, and rushed the cops.  They shot and killed him.  Moral of the story- don’t threaten the cops.   Speaking of Pennsylvania, President Trump bets the upcoming election on the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Minnesota.  Meanwhile, CNN blocks ads on the middle-class tax hikes “Pro-China Joe” Biden plans to enact once he’s elected president.   Talk about Orwellian.  Elsewhere, President Trump lifts tariffs on Canadian low-cost aluminum but tells Ottawa that if they continue cheating the United States, he will slap them back on their exports.

  59. 2020 Tuesday G: Former business partner with Hunter Biden and the Biden Family, Tony Bobulinski, sat down with Tucker Carlson on Fox News tonight and laid out step-by-step the corruption rank among the Bidens.  He pointed out how they were selling out the interests of their country on behalf of their own financial interests and the Fake News media continues trying to erase this story, cover it up, and protect stumbling, bumbling, rumbling old senile “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Democrats continue screeching it’s ‘Russian disinformation on behalf of the Trump campaign.’  Folks, a whole lotta payback is coming to these scurrilous scumbags on Election Day.  Join us and tens of millions of early voters voting STRAIGHT GOP. 
  60. 2021 Tuesday H: Finally, the 115th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett took the oath of office on this date and stepped onto the nation’s high court.  A member of no declared party, President Donald J.

  73. 2021 Wednesday L: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Joe Biden is set to meet with Pope Francis on Friday.  IF the pontiff truly follows the dictates of his job, he should excommunicate NOT only slobbering Joe Biden but many of the Democrats holding elective office who profess to be ‘practicing Catholics.’  He should do this because of their support for unfettered access to abortion, even once the baby lies squalling on the delivery table.  IF the pontiff truly followed his vows, he would do this.  We believe he won’t because he fears the Catholic Church in the United States could lose its tax-exempt status.  What will you do, Pope Francis, what will YOU do?  Remember, Jesus is watching YOU.
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee today and what a hearing it was.  The man bobbed, weaved, played rope-a-dope, stuttered, stumbled, mumbled, and did everything he could to stymie the questions from the GOP.  Like Barack Hussein Obama before him, everything Republicans asked him, he knew nothing about it until he saw it on the nightly news.  He would not answer questions as to when he knew this, that, or the other.  One of the GOP senators told him he was glad he was not on the U.S. Supreme Court.  Boy, do we concur with that.  Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, asked “The Mole” Garland IF he has opened an investigation into the people who harassed Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, you know, the ones who followed her into the ladies room berating her for not supporting the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills being pushed by Joe Biden.  No answer that we heard.
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS II- At the very same U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Senator “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, DS-HI, said that ‘we have all seen instances in which school board officials have been threatened with violence, intimidation, and social media abuse.’  Uh, okay, senator.  Do YOU have kids?  Anyhow, she wants to charge parents with hate crimes and other felonious laws designed either to force them to go silent or with which to prosecute and then imprison them.  George Orwell, anyone?  Still, committee Chairman Senator “Drippin’ Dick” Durbin, DS-IL, tried to keep things under control but the AG did his best to evade answering GOP questions that hammered him from all sides.  In the end, it would appear we learned nothing new.
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: POLITICAL NEWS I- Polls from Virginia continue saying that the gubernatorial race in the state between patriotic Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin and political hack, Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe are neck-and-neck.  Still, many believe that ‘the Maggot’ has the election in hand since none of the flaws in last year’s general election have been addressed.  The Dems will do everything they can to steal this election for political operative and Clinton bagman.  We shall see.
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: POLITICAL NEWS II- Ohio and Missouri school board associations have terminated their connections with the National School Board Association over its recent designation of unhappy and/or angry parents at school board meetings as ‘domestic terrorists.’   Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says ‘allowing the IRS to spy on Americans’ bank accounts is screwed up.’
  78. 2021 Wednesday Q: ECONOMIC NEWS- Shoe manufacturer Puma raises its outlook despite ongoing problems with the supply chain.  Next, Heineken says it’s Q3 beer sales saw a much larger drop than anticipated.  Moving on, Tomahawk cruise missile manufacturer Raytheon is going to lose ‘thousands of jobs’ over Joe Biden’s edict that ALL federal employees and/or federal contractors undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   (Note- this seems to us like Joe Biden is weakening the United States so the Chi-Coms can come in for the kill.  This is insane).  McDonalds- the world’s largest restaurant chain- says that its outlook has gone way up due to higher menu prices, larger portion sizes, and partnering up with rappers and South Korean boy bands.   Moving on, Uber drivers will soon be able to rent Teslas through Hertz, the global car rental agency.
  79. 2021 Wednesday R: POPULAR CULTURE NEWS- Fans of the Rolling Stones are demanding the now wimpy band to restore the classic tune, “Brown Sugar,” to the setlist.  NO one can fathom that a band that was ‘so in the face of the establishment’ now is bowing down to the Cancel Culture.  Stones, it’s time to rediscover your balls and continue on as you were, still are, and always will be.  Otherwise- it’s what Paul McCartney said- you’re just a blues cover band and to us a bunch of pussies.
  80. 2021 Wednesday S: SPORTS NEWS I- The NHL has fined the Chicago Blackhawks $2 million for not following through on sexual assault allegations against one of their assistant coaches back in 2010.  It has taken them 11 years to fine them for not doing an investigation.  Wow.  Next, here are the results for Game 2 of the World Series between the visiting Atlanta Braves (96-75) and the home team Houston Astros (100-71).  The Astros rebounded with a 7-2 victory at home.
  81. 2021 Wednesday T: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3607 what with a $29 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 25, 26, 27, 32, and Mega 04.  Out of 99,910 winning tickets, the highest winners were ELEVEN people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,622 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #903 with a jackpot of $102 million up for grabs: 03, 06, 26, 35, 51, and Power 17.  Out of 45,508 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,226,031.  The winning ticket was sold at Circle K in Perris, CA 92570.
  82. 2021 Wednesday U: Friends, last year, this is what we feared: the closer we come to the election, the more the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party hacks try to steal the elections by sowing as much confusion as possible into the system.  We hate to say this, after the elections, there is going to be hell to pay- for them.

The second ‘best of’ compilation by Fairport Convention hit record store shelves on July 12, 1976, “Fairport Chronicles.”  The band compiled their best cuts on two LPS chock full of the crème de la crème of the iconic British folk-rock band.  Friends, if you have yet to introduce the music of this veteran outfit that seems to be able to survive the snakes and ladders of the music business, this is a grand way in which to do it.  Please, seek this one out, give it a good listen, and add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did.

Wednesday, October 27, 2021:


[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 hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[iii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[iv] 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.

[v] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

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.
