2021 Saturday: In the aftermath of the Antifa-lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, federal investigators are putting government agencies under the spotlight to see who might have enabled the mobs to enter the Capitol. We see this as a combination of the “Night of the Long Knives” and the “Reichstag Fire” as being used by the Democrats and their RINO stooge allies on behalf of Beijing. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, Facebook- the nation’s self-appointed ministry of truth- is blocking all talk of events associated with Inauguration Day on January 20.

  65. 2021 Saturday:  In the aftermath of the Antifa-lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, federal investigators are putting government agencies under the spotlight to see who might have enabled the mobs to enter the Capitol.  We see this as a combination of the “Night of the Long Knives” and the “Reichstag Fire” as being used by the Democrats and their RINO stooge allies on behalf of Beijing.  Stay tuned.  Meanwhile, Facebook- the nation’s self-appointed ministry of truth- is blocking all talk of events associated with Inauguration Day on January 20.

  69. 2021 Saturday D: New Jersey Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy, pseudo dictator of the state, orders all state government workers who can to work from home in advance of the expected protests coming around Inauguration Day.  Remember- we believe the Democrats conspired to set the Capitol Hill riots in motion just as they are conspiring to send their Antifa and BLM Brown Shirts into the streets to carry out a FALSE FLAG OPERATION with which to dirty Trump supporters.  They know what’s coming and we know what’s coming.  Democrat Party-sanctioned violence on January 20.   Meanwhile, many now believe the reason for all the security in Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day with which to ‘prohibit’ attendees of the FAKE PRESIDENT’S inauguration is because very few were going to attend it anyway.  They want to spare decrepit Old Beijing Biden any embarrassment.   Finally, more videos continue coming to light- many filmed by the Antifa dimwits themselves- showing they were the ones behind the storming of the U.S. Capitol and that they did indeed have help from within the building from Capitol Hill cops and Democrat staffers.  More to come on this story…

Trump’s conviction in the second BS impeachment could have long-lasting ramifications for the GOP.  You better believe it.  All the money “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell begged for GOP senators he planned to throw under the bus- Martha McSally, Cory Gardner, David Perdue, Kelly Loeffler, and candidate John James- was for NOTHING.  It won’t happen again.
  72. 2021 Saturday G: Criticism continues befalling “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s ‘economic recovery plan’- if you can call such a mess a ‘plan’- continues to mount.  A job-killing increase in minimum wage across the board, paid parental family leave, $350 billion to help BLUE STATE and LOCAL governments to cover costs for damage THEY caused is making this monstrosity appear dead on arrival- DOA.  Add to that help for illegal aliens, climate change, and all sorts of other crazy stuff and you can smell this brewing disaster from 20 miles away.   Meanwhile, feeble old “Pro-China Joe” Biden proclaims, “Science will be at the forefront of my administration.”  Uh, okay, why don’t you ever listen to science on when fetuses begin to feel pain?  That’s proven science, Joe, not the crazy crap to which, you and your fellow liberals subscribe.

Trump is second only to what happened to President Abraham Lincoln.’  Next, John McLaughlin tells Newsmax TV that a ‘big backlash is coming.’  Elsewhere, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says the ‘House violated the U.S. Constitution with the rushed second bogus impeachment attempt of President Trump.
  76. 2021 Saturday K: Always up to no good, the Iranians fire loads of missiles into the Indian Ocean which come down perilously close to a commercial freighter plying the waters and 100 miles distant from the U.S.S. Nimitz carrier strike force sailing towards the Persian Gulf.  President Trump: please nuke these wannabe modern day Persian Empire mopes before you leave office. Ronald Reagan sunk their entire navy, let’s do it again.

Saturday, January 16, 2021, 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…

[i] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[ii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock star- Peter Frampton- as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.  The actual album, “Frampton Comes Alive” appeared on Thursday, 15-May-2014.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection.

[iii] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.

[iv] We have no clue as to when- or if- we will ever get around to promoting the music of Judas Priest.  Stick around long enough and you might be here on the day when we do.

I have been in professional food service for a long, long time, moving into management back in 1973. At the time, I was the Food and Beverage Director at one of the hotels in Bakersfield, CA, located on Union Avenue. I was in my late thirties at the time. I am still working at one of the local hotels in the nearby town of Delano, CA, a place that has been my home for the past 10 years. Our city has experienced marvelous growth and is fast becoming a player in county politics. Chef Charles Smithenstein writes from Delano, California.
