In crazy news, both Washington state and New York state are considering a trip down the Australia crazy path. They want to detain people who test positive for the ‘VID in COVID-19 quarantine camps for up to 10 days- especially those who don’t get vaccinated- or until they no longer pose a threat to their communities.

  2. 2022 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 414,612 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 52,240 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 356 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.          
  3. 2022 Tuesday 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: 6,259,531 confirmed cases, 77,508 confirmed deaths, and 6,182,023 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 4,853,967 confirmed cases, 62,813 confirmed deaths, and 3,651,369 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 150,028 confirmed cases, 1,105 confirmed deaths, and 148,923 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 996,682 confirmed cases, 10,106 confirmed deaths, and 349,815 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Wuhan repatriated: they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,589,106 confirmed cases, 8,274 confirmed deaths, and 1,380,216 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Cambodia, 111th country on the list: 120,670 cases of the virus, 3,015 confirmed death and 117,034 confirmed recoveries.[iv]      
  5. 2022 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 36,252.02, UP 183.15 points (+0.51%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,153.45 UP 210.62 points (+1.41%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,713.07, UP 42.78 points (+0.92%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $81.28 per barrel, +0.06 (+0.07%).  The price of GOLD is $1,819.40 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $22.81 per troy ounce, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $966.50 per troy oz, -6.70 (-0.69%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, +0.03 (+0.78%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,917.17 per troy oz., +4.53 (+0.24%).

  6. 2022 Tuesday 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 $4.654 per gallon, $3.191 in Florida, $4.338 in Hawaii, and $3.938 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Missouri- $2.933.  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 95th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Chile: $4.767 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,710,714,938,451 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 Sweden the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Philippines with $43,000,000,000 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 Tuesday F: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- Yet another Democrat announces testing positive for the Chi-Vi.  Chicago democratic-socialist Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot announced the positive test which could be a ploy with which to gain sympathy.  She is fighting with the teachers’ unions in the Windy City, threatening them with arrest if they don’t immediately return to teaching the little tykes in the classroom.
  8. 2022 Tuesday G: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News-  In crazy news, both Washington state and New York state are considering a trip down the Australia crazy path.  They want to detain people who test positive for the ‘VID in COVID-19 quarantine camps for up to 10 days- especially those who don’t get vaccinated- or until they no longer pose a threat to their communities.  Folks in both states own loads of guns and Chef Vladimir who lives in Mukilteo says ‘good luck taking him and his family to one of these camps because they are going to get their asses s**t.   He also says that Governor Jay “The Palooka” Inslee is as stupid as they come and it’s his hope that they will be able to get this numbskull out of the governor’s mansion.
  9. 2022 Tuesday H: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $56.69 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.10 (3) Merck & Company: $81.67 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $171.25 (5) Novavax: $130.68 (6) BioNTech: $215.80 (7) Moderna: $221.39.
  10. 2022 Tuesday I: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $90.72 (2) General Dynamics: $211.58 (3) Boeing: $216.02 (4) Lockheed Martin: $364.14 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $400.60.
  11. 2022 Tuesday J: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $34.12 (2) DuPont: $83.03 (3) Honeywell: $216.31 (4) 3M: $178.98 (5) Teijen: $1,475.00.
  12. 2022 Tuesday K: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $66.58 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $29.31 (3) Beyond Meat: $69.38.
  13. 2022 Tuesday L: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $144.20 (2) Lowe’s: $249.50 (3) Home Depot: $386.67 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $522.03 (5) Amazon: $3,307.24.
  14. 2022 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I- Down in Georgia today, Joe Biden spoke at the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial and spent much of the time screaming and yelling like a feeble old man would.  It was embarrassing enough that at moments where the handpicked crowd of black folks wearing numerous masks remained lackluster, someone on the other side must have raised a BIG SIGN demanding all of them applaud, which, they did without much spirit.  NO one enjoys being a political prop.   In other Biden-related news, a new Rasmussen poll says that President Donald J. Trump cleans Joe Biden’s clock in a hypothetical rematch.  Bring it on, folks, bring it on.
  15. 2022 Tuesday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- Joe Biden with “Kooky Kamala” Harris in tow went down to Atlanta, Georgia, today (the Devil came down to Georgia, you know the rest) to demand the federal government be allowed to take over control of ALL elections nationwide, a long-time loser always claiming the election was ‘robbed from her’- Stacey Abrams- did not come to participate in the Biden-Harris snooze-fest.  She claimed to have prior commitments but it’s clear the angry old writer of pornographic novels wants to be nowhere near this crumbling duo of losers.   That’s one loser not wanting to be seen with other losers.  Wow. Related to ‘voting rights,’ Senator Lindsey Graham, says that ‘Joe Biden is lying about voting rights.’  The final word on voting rights, flailing Joe said, “I’m tired of being quiet on voting rights!”  You’re not quiet, Joe, you’re a senile loudmouth.  Shut the hell up already.
  16. 2022 Tuesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I- The White House is limiting crowd size at various events due to the Omicron surge that is taking names and kicking butts.  Terror reigns supreme at the White House.   Next, the U.S. Department of Defense is going to screen applicants for ‘extremist views.’  How about screening them for Mexican narcoterrorists, jihadists, and black nationalists?  The military is going to hell under the watch of feeble Joe Biden.   In other regime-related news, the Internal Revenue Service says American taxpayers should expect delays this tax season.
  17. 2022 Tuesday P: Political News I- Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that we are ‘living under a socialist government.’  Amen.   Next, as the Biden regime continues trying to claim the election systems in the various states are corrupt, thus they must federalize all elections to keep them honest (yeah, right), Congresswoman Claudia
    Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says the Dems want ‘election reform so they can cheat.’
  18. 2022 Tuesday Q: Political News II- Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large congressional district, called the state GOP chair, Frank Eathorne, a ‘radical’ for having criticized her views.  This led to the Wyoming GOP to blast her for being the RINO POS that she is.  Can this woman not keep her carbuncle-loaded foot out of her mouth in the remaining time she has left in office?   Here is what this corrupt skank said of Mr. Eathorne: “There are people in the state party apparatus of my home state who are quite radical. And some of those same people include people who were here on Jan. 6, include a party chair who has toyed with the idea of secession.”  Enough already, enough, Liz.
  19. 2022 Tuesday R: Political News III- On Capitol Hill today in the U.S. Senate, Senators Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Tom Cotton, R-AR, slung questions at various personages from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice regarding FBI participation in the false flag operations of January 06, 2021.  Of course, none of the DOJ or FBI officials had a clue as to whom Ray Epps- one of the principal agitators captured on film numerous times both the night before and on the day of the operation urging, NO- demanding!- Trump followers enter the Capitol.  The FBI person who lost the draw and had to appear- Jill Sanborn- claimed to know OF Mr. Epps, but the DOJ official had NO knowledge as to whom Mr. Epps is.  We suspect the feds will wash their hands of Mr. Epps and that someone will discover him in a New Jersey landfill.  That always seems to be the way these things go…  Oh- the sham 01-06-2021 select committee released a Tweet today in which, they claimed to have interviewed Ray Epps.  Nothing to see, move on.
  20. 2022 Tuesday R: U.S. House of Representatives News I- The House GOP say that ‘Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci was warned ahead of time of the possibility that COVID-19 escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, so says emails released to Congress.  Congressman Michael Burgess, R-TX 26th congressional district, says the nation is ‘no closer to the truth on the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’
  21. 2022 Tuesday S: U.S. Senate News I-  U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell vows retaliation if the scurrilous Democrats topple the filibuster rule to shove through their highly unpopular agenda.   Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, was asking an FBI official about whether the FBI instigated the January 06, 2021, FALSE FLAG OPERATION or not.  The representative of the once proud and impartial bureau had no direct answers.  When questioned about arch-instigator, Ray Epps, she said she was ‘aware of Mr. Epps but could say nothing more.’  To us, this means that Epps was either an undercover FBI agent or one of their paid stooges.   In other news, U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says he plans to run for majority leader again despite his declining popularity combined with frequent criticism from President Donald J. Trump.
  22. 2022 Tuesday T: U.S. Supreme Court News I- A new report suggests that IF the U.S. Supreme Court tosses Joe Biden’s extremely unconstitutional vaccine mandates, it could benefit the White House.  Not exactly sure why other than one reason: it will give the Democrats additional impetus to pack the United States Supreme Court.
  23. 2022 Tuesday U: Fake News I- USA Today reported today that the past seven years have been the hottest in the history of planet Earth and that there’s no slowing down.  Anyone with an ounce of sense understands that the Sun is the DRIVER OF ALL THINGS RELATED TO CLIMATE across the Solar System on planets and moons with climates.  Increased solar activity whether it’s solar winds, sunspots, or solar flares or lack thereof changes the climate on each planet or moon blessed with a climate.  We know it’s been way hotter in the prehistoric history of the planet just as we know it’s been colder, sometimes covered in ice.  It is what it is, all we need do is to conserve our resources and combat pollution.  The fact that in the previous century hundreds of millions of bombs were dropped as well as tens of thousands of nuclear tests below ground, at ground level, in the atmosphere, or in the depths of the ocean, the fact that the planet is still here and doing well discounts all the bullshit environmentalist nuts spread.  It all comes down to common sense.  Are you smarter than a leftist or is the leftist smarter than you?
  24. 2022 Tuesday V: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1728 what with a $300 million jackpot on the line: 02, 03, 19, 52, 58, and Mega 16.  Out of 117,175 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $10,800 apiece.

There is one thing one can say about British folk-rock band, Fairport Convention, and that is, they continue soldiering along while others of their generation have boarded up the windows, sealed the doors, and slapped ‘gone fishing’ notices on the plywood.  The band’s next live album, “Journeyman’s Grace,” hit record store shelves on August 18, 2005.  The band included virtuoso Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 20 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

Posted on behalf of my colleague, Chef Charles Smithenstein by Chef Elvin C. McCardle…you owe me one, Smithy!

Author: Chef Elvin C. McCardle, ACF-CWC

I began my career working as a busboy in 1963, move to washing pots in 1965, became a chef's apprentice in 1969 and have been a career professional ever since. I am still involved in professional foodservice as a consultant for food and beverage professionals. Like everyone else who writes for the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, Bakersfield, California, street artist and graffiti guru, Simone, has done cartoon caricatures of me, which is my personal photo now. We must keep our personal identities confidential as in this world of political animosity and the fact that we own restaurants, which are dependent upon public visitation, has forced us to journey down this road. We hope you understand. Thank you. Chef Elvin C. McCardle writes from Ventura, CA. Chef Elvin C. McCardle is now a Conservative Republican!
