An election year must be coming soon: COVID-19 numbers (supposedly) are going up, up, up, and away!  Thank you, Chi-Coms!

b. Poor Joe: jobs numbers are pathetic, and he thumps his chest and calls them ‘good news as the holidays approach.’ Friends, someone send him up to the attic, put him in his rocker, give him a shawl, put on his slippers, hand him a bowl of chicken noodle soup, and turn on reruns of “Law and Order SVU”- he has much in common with the perps on that show…

An election year must be coming soon: COVID-19 numbers (supposedly) are going up, up, up, and away!  Thank you, Chi-Coms!

  1. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 273,218,485 confirmed cases, +748,806, 5,352,581 confirmed deaths, +7,189 and 245,296,117 confirmed recoveries, +520,602. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 51,435,652 confirmed cases, UP 144,673 from yesterday’s reporting, 824,520 confirmed deaths, UP +1,130,[i] and 40,406,796 confirmed recoveries, UP 63,235. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 418,452 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 15,130 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.  Joe has done this in, uh, 321 days.  Congratulations, Joe!  After that, he will be the sole arbiter of death in the United States.     
  3. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 5,058,204 confirmed cases, 75,822 confirmed deaths, and 4,982,382 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,777,960 confirmed cases, 62,191 confirmed deaths, and 3,606,412 confirmed recoveries (more or less the same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 90,270 confirmed cases, 1,065 confirmed deaths, and 89,205 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 801,699 confirmed cases, 9,708 confirmed deaths, and 333,484 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Oregon: they have 404,229 confirmed cases, 5,527 confirmed deaths, and 362,424 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,353,281 confirmed cases, 8,230 confirmed deaths, and 1,338,654 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Bosnia and Herzegovina, 84th country on the list: 283,784 cases of the virus, 13,091 confirmed death and 192,218 confirmed recoveries.[iv]     
  5. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,897.64, DOWN 29.79 points (-0.083%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,180.43 DOWN 385.15 points (-2.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,668.67, DOWN 41.18 points (-0.87%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.69 per barrel, -0.69 (-0.95%).  The price of GOLD is $1,803.60 per troy oz., +5.40 (+0.29%) while the price of SILVER is $22.45 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.18%).  The price of PLATINUM is $927.80 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.29 per pound, -0.01 (-0.34%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,720.23 per troy oz., -9.45 (-0.48%). The price of RHODIUM is $14,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,045,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,686.75 per USD/T, +3.25 (+0.12%).[vi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.85.    In Bermudian Dollar, one greenback equals 1.00 and in Bhutanese Ngultrum, a buck equal 76.11 and in Bolivar Soberano, one dollar equals 4.60 of theirs.[vii]        
  6. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.670 per gallon, $3.244 in Florida, $4.339 in Hawaii, and $3.866 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Puerto Rico $3.089.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 72nd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Cameroun: $4.099 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,033,495,974,063 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Great Britain the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  7. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Today is Day No. 264 for the globally celebrated ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 177 since she showed up to do less than an hours’ worth of work.  Others, however, are doing everything they can to halt the illegal alien invasion.  Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, announced the Lone Star state is going to construct its own border wall with which to prevent the tidal wave of illegal aliens pouring across the border into Texas.  Governor, we encourage you to lay in minefields, too. Electrify your fence, do whatever it requires to stop the invasion.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, has bestowed a new moniker on slobbering Joe Biden: “Trafficker-in-Chief” for all the illegal aliens he is permitting to invade the country and for the countless illegals he continues dumping in the Sunshine State.[xi]            
  8. 2021 Thursday G: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis is pushing his new Stop WOKE Act which stands for “Stop Wrongs to our Kids and Employees” with which to combat the liberal losers pushing Critical (Criminal) Race Theory in the Sunshine State’s schools and businesses.  We need the act for the entire nation.  Elsewhere, the CEOs of Southwest Airlines and American Airlines told Congress there’s not much point in requiring masks on airliners seeing as how their air is fresh and constantly being purified.
  9. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II– Meanwhile, over at United Airlines, due to their refusal to get vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, management has grounded at least six pilots without pay or medical benefits and has put at least another 80 on notice that they can and will lose their jobs should they not comply.  Elsewhere, various RED STATE governors are pushing back on the U.S. Department of Defense mandate that all National Guard troops undergo vaccination.  We say, tell the DOD NO, that you won’t contribute any troops to any wars senile Joe Biden may start.  In other news, the Los Angeles School Board is pushing back its own misguided, self-imposed vaccine mandates as approximately 27,000 kids remain unvaccinated for the Chi-Vi.  The school board simply cannot tolerate the loss of federal dollars for 27,000 kids.
  10. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $61.25 (2) AstraZeneca: $57.09 (3) Merck & Company: $75.91 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $173.01 (5) BioNTech: $283.68 (6) Moderna: $282.02.  In some devastating news to J & J, the Centers for Disease Control is recommending against their vaccine for the Chi-Com never-ending virus and is encouraging the use of Pfizer and Moderna.  They finally are admitting there are loads of problematic and sometimes deadly side effects associated with the J & J shoddy vaccine.  We have said from the start, AVOID taking Johnson & Johnson.
  11. 2021 Thursday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $82.70 (2) General Dynamics: $206.18 (3) Boeing: $190.79 (4) Lockheed Martin: $344.84 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $378.72.
  12. 2021 Thursday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $31.93 (2) DuPont: $78.71 (3) Honeywell: $209.61 (4) 3M: $178.31 (5) Teijen: $1,402.00.
  13. 2021 Thursday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $65.78 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $29.04 (3) Beyond Meat: $66.15.
  14. 2021 Thursday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $143.25 (2) Lowe’s: $253.16 (3) Home Depot: $399.53 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $552.63 (5) Amazon: $3,377.42.
  15. 2021 Thursday N: Economic News- Jobless figures for last week are in with an appalling 206,000 first-time filings for unemployment benefits.  Senile Joe Biden says the jobs numbers are a sign of economic improvement for all Americans.  He says, ‘the jobless numbers are good news as the holidays approach.’  Someone, please take this senile f**k to the attic, give him a shawl, put him in his rocker, give him a bowl of chicken noodle soup, and turn on reruns of “Law and Order SVU.”  He has much in common with the CHOMOs on that show.
  16. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden Regime News I- The U.S. Department of State has placed bounties atop the heads of El Chapo’s four sons.  Whoa.   Meanwhile, the Biden regime has slapped human rights sanctions on the Chi-Coms for their mistreatment of Uighur Muslims.  Oh, really?   In yet another sign that Democrats are awakening to the MASSIVE disaster awaiting them in next year’s elections, the Department of Justice has HALTED talks with illegal alien families separated during 2017-2018 by the ‘evil Trump presidency.’  Giving each illegal alien adult $450,000 apiece is going to lead to a massive landslide by the GOP in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.
  17. 2021 Thursday P: Political News I- As crime continues to explode in BLUE LOCALES around the country, a discombobulated, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, mumbled out something stupid: ‘the crime wave is fueled by an attitude of lawlessness.’  In another strange situation, outrage continues to grow over Senator Richard “Hobgoblin” Blumenthal, DS-CT, appearing at a Communist Party USA event in his state over the weekend.  Blumenthal- reputed to be among the wealthiest members of the Senate- has caused anger among the American people for kowtowing to communists at this ‘event.’  This ain’t good.  In other news devastating to the Democrats, Senator Jon Thune, R-SD, says that the CBO score of the Build Back Better (Bullshit) Bill is ‘devastating to the Dems’ which is why slobbering Joe now is talking about VOTING RIGHTS.  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, said the BBBB is ‘dead forever.’
  18. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News II- A growing number of angry conservatives have sent U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, a letter demanding he remove two losers from the GOP caucus: Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY at large district, and Congressman Adam “Crybaby” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district.  He may as well, how many votes do they side with Republicans as opposed to brown-nosing their Democrat masters?  Time for them to go.  Elsewhere, even as Democrats attempt to defeat the brash Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, President Donald J. Trump- the rightful president- has endorsed her for another term.
  19. 2021 Thursday R: Political News III- Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, is proposing a bill to ban trannys- ‘chicks with dicks’- from playing female sports.  Look, we believe a third category of sports must be created- tranny sports- as that would make things simpler and what college or university could resist doling out massive scholarships to the mentally ill?  Think about it.  In other ‘chicks with dicks’ news, UPENN parents are going to the NCAA to get help for their female swimmers who are having their clocks cleaned by a misguided boy claiming to be a girl.  Look, if boys claim they are girls, here’s the deal: get everything snipped off- penis, testes, scrotum, all of it, be a ‘girl’ for a year, and demonstrate that you GENUINELY believe you are what your diseased brain claims.  Otherwise, time to start a third category of sports: tranny sports.
  20. 2021 Thursday S: Political News IV- In other news, the D.C. Bar Association has reinstated terminated FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith who lost his law license when the world learned that he lied about President Trump’s supposed ties to the Russkies.   Next, Kim Kardashian says that ‘she doesn’t care about criticism of her working with President Donald J. Trump.’  Good.  People are beginning to fight back against the failed Cancel Culture.
  21. 2021 Thursday T: Sports News I- The Kansas City Chiefs went to Los Angeles tonight to play the Chargers and in so doing, improved their record to 10-4-0 while the Chargers dropped to 8-6-0.  The final score, Chiefs 34, Chargers 28.  In some absolute crazy news, due to all the ‘new cases of the Chi-Vi,’ the league says that ALL players and employees- regardless of vaccination status- must now mask up.  We expect to see people fainting and perhaps even dropping dead on the field if they truly plan to go through with this craziness.

Always working away, Fairport Convention knocked out their next studio album- “The Wood and the Wire”- on November 15, 1999.  Once again, the band features a revamped lineup of sorts: Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Ric Sanders (fiddle), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), Chris Leslie (violins, multiple stringed instruments, and vocals), and Gerry Conway (drums and percussion).  No matter who exactly is in the lineup, the band always delivers the goods, and this album demonstrates it.  We hope you will investigate this album to your and if you find it as wonderful as we do, well, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in rock music.  You will enjoy it.

Wednesday, December 16, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

Thursday, December 16, 2021:


[i] 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 (

[ii] Here is the link: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (

[iii] See United States COVID: 33,033,385 Cases and 589,110 Deaths – Worldometer (

[iv] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (

[v] Commodities – Oil, Silver and Gold Prices – CNN Business– see this site for daily commodity information.

[vi] Commodities Prices – Spot – Futures ( See this site for much of the economic information cobbled together at this blog.

[xi] While we hate to say this, we are going to say it anyway: we believe the human traffickers ALSO are contributing to not only the Biden crime family but to many elected Democrats and some RINOs which is why so many elected leaders are willing to look the other way at the tidal wave of humanity pouring into the country.  There is no other explanation than this as other than votes, why do we need to import more poor people?

This would have been my photo, I, your host, back in the 1980's when I was the Executive Chef at a country club in the Napa Valley but for security purposes, we have scaled some of our personal info back so now, you get a caricature of me done by up-and-coming Bakersfield street artist, Simone. Nice job, Simone! However, I spent many years working in professional Food Service, having begun as a young boy working for my father in his restaurant over on the coast in Pismo Beach. Food Service is in my blood and it's something I still do actively every day in my late eighties in Washington State. Chef Vladimir Gdansk writes from Mukilteo, Washington.
