The CDC and Moderna have confirmed that the Chi-Vi vaccines don’t work.  We already knew this…

The CDC says- whether you are vaccinated or you’re not- DON’T go on a cruise. What does that say? Next, Moderna is now pushing a fourth shot, another booster atop a booster- because their stock price has dropped. This is not about fighting the ‘VID anymore, this is about money, making lots of money, plain and simple. It’s also about stealing the 2022 Mid-Term Elections like they did the 2020 Election only this time, we are not going to allow them to do this.

Christmas Day (Orthodox)

The CDC and Moderna have confirmed that the Chi-Vi vaccines don’t work.  We already knew this…

  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 450,062 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 46,690 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 352 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.        
  3. 2022 Friday 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: 5,835,909 confirmed cases, 77,257 confirmed deaths, and 5,758,652 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 4,610,197 confirmed cases, 62,625 confirmed deaths, and 3,644,261 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 134,452 confirmed cases, 1,101 confirmed deaths, and 133,351 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 935,210 confirmed cases, 10,071 confirmed deaths, and 341,221 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., U.S. military: they have 422,450 confirmed cases, 641 confirmed deaths, and 394,605 confirmed recoveries.[iii]

  6. 2022 Friday 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.656 per gallon, $3.200 in Florida, $4.336 in Hawaii, and $3.909 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Maryland- $3.259.  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 91st HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- People’s Republic of China: $4.576 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,701,680,107,734 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 Poland the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49,000,000,000 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. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Today is Day No. 285 for the internationally famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 198 since ‘California’s Shame’ showed up to do an hour’s work. Here are our estimates for the illegal alien invasion.  First, here is the cost for this day of caring for the uninvited vermin: $724,385,300.  Next, here is the cost for this year combined with last year’s appalling total: $401,483,382,750.  Imagine the good this money could do for the American people?  For the homeless, the destitute veterans that only President Donald J. Trump cared for, the mentally ill wandering the streets, and orphaned children.  Imagine what this money could do the U.S. citizens but it’s going to illegal aliens.  This can and must stop.  Next, here is the estimated number of illegal aliens who have swarmed across the border and into the U.S. over the course of this week: 163,484.  Combined with last year’s total, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals in the U.S. as we speak: 42,262,884. These people drive up rents by sucking up affordable housing.  They overrun hospitals, clinics, and suck up resources needed by the American people.  They drive up the cost of food, clothing, everything.  They commit rapes, robberies, and other violent crimes, they sell drugs to our kids.  The time to clean up the country is NOW.
  8. 2022 Friday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- North Korea says it won’t be attending the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.  Meanwhile, the United States and Japan have inked a new five-year military cooperation deal with which to combat the Chi-Coms and the North Koreans.  Elsewhere, Russian military units are entering neighboring Kazakhstan to help the government crush popular uprisings across the country.  The Kazak government called on Russia to honor the Collective Security Treaty Organization, aka the CSTO, because protests over a massive spike in fuel costs has the country’s populace up in arms.
  9. 2022 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- A new report suggests that the Biden regime is growing frustrated with the Centers for Disease Control unable to remain on message when it comes to forcing everyone into getting vaccines for the Chi-Vi that clearly do not work.   The more cases continue skyrocketing, the less inclined the American people are to get them as they clearly do not work.  People catch the disease, they spread the disease, and people continue to die so WTF would we submit to getting a questionable medicine jabbed into our bodies?  Enough is enough, already.  Speaking of the CDC, they have given us further proof the vaccines don’t work: DON’T take cruises whether you are vaccinated or you are not.  What does this suggest?  It suggests the vaccines don’t work and it’s all about following the money.  (See below).
  10. 2022 Friday I: Health and Medical Alerts- Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy of New Jersey is deploying the Garden State’s National Guard to the state’s long-term care facilities to help healthcare workers with increasing numbers of COVID-19 patients.   Elsewhere, we learned that one million COVID-19 test kits expired in a Florida warehouse due to low demand.  (Note- we didn’t know that the test kits had ‘expiration dates.’  Interesting.  No wonder BIG GOVERNMENT is pushing the test kits now, they must be getting kickbacks).  Elsewhere, as COVID-19 numbers continue climbing (it’s an election year, after all), hospitals are denying life-saving surgeries out of fear of the Chi-Vi.
  11. 2022 Friday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- Philippines president- a nut if ever one existed- Roderigo Duterte is threatening to arrest any citizen who has not undergone vaccination for the Chi-Com virus.  In other news, the U.S. Supreme Court is weighing Joe Biden’s corrupt vaccine mandates.  Apparently, very few of them- especially the liberals- know little to nothing about the mandates which is why two state attorney generals are standing before them arguing against them.  Jeff Landry, R-LA, and Dave Yost, R-OH, are fighting on behalf of the American people.
  12. 2022 Friday K:  Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $55.71 (2) AstraZeneca: $57.48 (3) Merck & Company: $80.30 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $173.94 (5) Novavax: $126.70 (6) BioNTech: $211.84 (7) Moderna: $213.86.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Pfizer: $59.02 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.25 (3) Merck & Company: $76.64 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $171.07 (5) Novavax: $143.07 (6) BioNTech: $257.80 (7) Moderna: $253.98. (A new report has it that Moderna is now seeking a fourth shot seeing as how their stock price has dropped just a tad).
  13. 2022 Friday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $90.45 (2) General Dynamics: $212.09 (3) Boeing: $215.47 (4) Lockheed Martin: $360.16 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $400.42.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Raytheon: $86.06 (2) General Dynamics: $208.47 (3) Boeing: $201.30 (4) Lockheed Martin: $355.41 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $387.21.
  14. 2022 Friday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $32.88 (2) DuPont: $83.19 (3) Honeywell: $215.75 (4) 3M: $179.92 (5) Teijen: $1,451.00.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Ansell Ltd.: $31.51 (2) DuPont: $80.78 (3) Honeywell: $208.51 (4) 3M: $177.63 (5) Teijen: $1,415.00.
  15. 2022 Friday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $66.60 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $23.16 (3) Beyond Meat: $68.52. Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.42 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $23.12 (3) Beyond Meat: $65.16.
  16. 2022 Friday O: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $144.88 (2) Lowe’s: $251.09 (3) Home Depot: $393.53 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $536.18 (5) Amazon: $3,251.08.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Wal-Mart: $144.72 (2) Lowe’s: $258.48 (3) Home Depot: $415.01 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $567.70 (5) Amazon: $3,334.34.
  17. 2022 Friday P: Jobs Report- The jobs numbers are in, and they truly suck.  Instead of the anticipated 400,000 prophesied by the Biden regime, the number came in at 199,000.  Oh, the unemployment rate went down from 4.2-percent to 3.9-percent (so they must be counting bottom-of-the-trough jobs bestowed illegal aliens- someone has to shine AOC’s crapper).   RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel slammed the feeble president over this pathetic jobs report.
  18. 2022 Friday Q: President Donald J. Trump News- Capitol Hill police officer Brianna Kirkland has filed a 57-page lawsuit against President Donald J. Trump on the one-year anniversary of the Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi-organized and operated FALSE FLAG OPERATION claiming that the 45th president directed the mob that caused her emotional injuries.  Where does the federal government find these wimps?   Officer Kirkland is seeking $75,000 in punitive damages as well as attorney’s fees.  Oh, wah, wah, wah.  (Note- we’re surprised the other four pussies aren’t joining her in a class-action suit.  There’s always room for more crybabies.  We’re surprised that Lt. Michael Byrd- the murderer of Ashli Babbitt- isn’t on the lawsuit over his emotional distress).
  19. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News I-  The U.S. Department of State has slapped sanctions on eight Cuban officials over their roles in the recent FREEDOM PROTESTS that swept across the island dictatorship last year.   Next, the Biden regime is finalizing a deal with the U.S. Postal Service on the mass-shipping of COVID-19 tests to the homes of Americans, many of whom won’t take them.  Let us ask an extremely pertinent question: exactly how much money do our elected leaders get from both the vaccines and the test kits?  There is NO other explanation as to WHY they push 24/7 for everyone to get the vaccines plus the boosters plus the test kits.  WTF?
  20. 2022 Friday S: Political News I- Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, ripped into the Democrats big time when the world learned that Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, received a COVID-19 stimulus check while sitting on death row awaiting execution.  A judge has since okayed the money going to his victims.   Meanwhile, Congressman Don Bacon, R-NE 2nd congressional district, says that the Dems’ focus on Donald J. Trump will cost them the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  In other news related to President Trump, Mark Meadows, President Trump’s White House Chief of Staff, is encouraging the U.S. Supreme Court to make a prompt response on the 45th president’s 01-06-2021 documents.
  21. 2022 Friday T: Political News II- “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani who also served as legal adviser to President Donald J. Trump lit “Kooky Kamala” Harris up for having compared the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots to the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001.  Unlike ‘California’s shame,’ he was there so he knows the difference between a leftwing-sponsored riot and a terrorist attack the magnitude of 9-11.  (Note- no one ever said “Kooky” was very bright).  President Trump said that ‘Americans see through the Democrats’ desperate attempts at spinning the events of 01-06-2021’ to make it seem as something other than what it was: something they created, ginned up, and then set in motion.  Regarding “Kooky,” former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik said of the ’vice president’ that she’s a disgrace.  We tend to agree.
  22. 2022 Friday U: Political News III- Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, and Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, are demanding a probe into the government’s actions in the January 06, 2021, ‘Fedsurrection.’  We want to see it, too.  Elsewhere, the organizers of the March for Life say that the annual march in the defense of life will continue, COVID-19 or NO COVID-19.  God bless them, we must do what we must to prevent the murder of the unborn.
  23. 2022 Friday V: Crime and Punishment News-  The three men convicted of murdering Ahmaud Arbery received their sentences today in Brunswick, Georgia.  Father Gregory McMichael and son, Travis McMichael both received life in prison with no possibility of parole.  Their good buddy who filmed the entire incident and helped them hem in Mr. Arbery so the other two could kill him- William “Roddie” Bryan- received a life sentence with the possibility of parole.  Justice was served.
  24. 2022 Friday W: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1727 what with a $278 million jackpot on the line: 07, 29, 43, 56, 57, and Mega 06.   Out of 123,680 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $31,906.

My colleagues and I no longer share old photos of us, as the price of success means that lunatics and nuts come looking for one. Therefore, we hired local up-and-coming Bakersfield-Oildale, California street artist, Simone, to create facsimiles of us so we can remain somewhat obscure. Ah, well, I began my culinary career in 1969 bussing tables at age 12 and became a cook's apprentice in 1973 at age 17. I have worked all over California, Hawaii, Washington State, and even a brief time in Arizona. Chef Brian Carrick writes from Weedpatch, California. Chef Brian Carrick is a Conservative Republican.
