Randi Weingarten- head of all the teachers in America- should shut up and allow schools to reopen in person minus the masks. Who’s she kidding? Hell, she could end up like another infamous union boss, Jimmy Hoffa. People are tired of all this mierda de vaca. No se lo desearía a nadie, amigos míos.

Randi Weingarten- head of all the teachers in America– should shut up and allow schools to reopen in person minus the masks.  Who’s she kidding?  Hell, she could end up like another infamous union boss, Jimmy Hoffa.  People are tired of all this mierda de vacaNo se lo desearía a nadie, amigos míos.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 490,043 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 1236,791 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in TWELVE MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 386 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  6. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.682 per gallon, $3.468 in Florida, $4.435 in Hawaii, and $3.951 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: American Samoa- $3.699.  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 122nd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Cyprus: $5.981 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,024,144,646,029 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 Mexico the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Kuwait holds $47,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News- The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan- Rear Admiral Peter Vasely- said that the evacuation of Americans from the imploding country was harmed by pleas from the White House, Pope Francis, and others seeking help for their own interests.  Well, it would appear that Joe Biden is going to do the same thing for Americans living in Ukraine.  If I were living in Ukraine, I would be getting the hell out of there now.
  8. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The ‘world’s border czar’- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the southern border now for 314 days and more embarrassing than that, she has not been to the border in 228 days.  Vergonzoso.   Okay, amigos, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders for the past 41 days stands at $2,948,091,077.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegals for the past 406 days is around $41,647,296,419.  Extremely bad for us U.S. taxpayers.  Next, the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border in the past 41 days is around 335,114.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of mojados living in the country is 42,528,748.  We still believe the number is closer to 85-125 million which is far, far worse.  ¡Extraordinario!
  9. 2022 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Russian military forces begin military exercises with Belarus near Ukraine’s northern border.  Speaking of Russia’s military exercises, the ‘Neville Chamberlain of our time—British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson says of Russia’s drills that they ‘signal a dangerous moment in world history.’  Looks like we’ve got another Tony Blair-like stooge for yet another American warmongering president.  Wow.  Meanwhile, despite the media trying to play down fears of the Russians invading Ukraine, photos show the continued Russian build up along three sides of Ukraine’s border.  Diplomats from various nations are scurrying back and forth between Moscow and Berlin seeking some method by which the world can defuse this perilous situation.  The Iranians are bragging about the deployment of their new missiles that can hit Israeli, U.S., and other enemies across the region.  Time to nuke the Iranians.
  10. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II- Residents of Rotterdam, Netherlands, threaten to pelt Jeff Bezos new luxury yacht when it sails downstream from the shipyard where Dutch workers built it.  The reason they are pissed is because that in order for the vessel to go downriver to reach the sea, a substantial portion of a historic, 140-year-old bridge will have to be dismantled to allow the behemoth egress to the sea.  This should be fun to watch.  Meanwhile, the fascists in Canada are trying to topple the Canadian trucker freedom protests.  Justin Trudeau- little Mr. Blackface himself- might as well be Marie Antoinette: ‘let them eat cake.’  His good friend in Washington, D.C., Joe Biden, is telling him to go all out ‘federal,’ i.e., bring in the military and crush these people.  Friend, you are going to have your own problems with U.S. truckers very soon.  Amigo, vas a tener tu propio problema con los camioneros americanos muy pronto.
  11. 2022 Thursday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- Here’s a bad one: a new report says that ONE YEAR following COVID-19 infection, the likelihood that one will suffer a heart attack goes up by a shocking 60-percent.  Wow.  Next, a new COVID-19 variant has been discovered in the sewage of the Big Apple.  Investigators suspect that it could be related to the billions of rats that inhabit the city’s rank underground.  This variant could be the one for which, the Chi-Coms did not even plan, one that is crossed with humans, bats, and now rats.  This could be the variant that DESTROYS the planet.  Let’s see what is happening in a year or so…
  12. 2022 Thursday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- As growing resistance over never-ending mask mandates continues growing, more and more Democrats are leaping aboard the “NO-MASKS RUNAWAY FREIGHT TRAIN.”  Dems, it’s better late than never.   Meanwhile, north of the U.S. border, Alberta, Canada, is lifting ALL COVID-19 vaccine and mask restrictions all the while leftwing hack mayor of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, says that his goons are ready to begin the physical removal of the FREEDOM TRUCKERS.  This should be good.  Tiananmen Square anyone?

  18. 2022 Thursday Q: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump endorses Congressman Warren Davidson, R-OH 8th congressional district, for another term.   Next, President Trump commented on the recent story about National Archives operatives going to Florida to his Mar-a-Lago club to seize his White House records as just more ‘fake news.’
  19. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden News I- Joe Biden says he’s doing a ‘deep dive’ into FOUR potential U.S. Supreme Court replacements for retiring Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.  IF you believe this, well, I won’t say what I think.  All they need to be is BLACK and have a panocha between their legs.   Ooh que la.
  20. 2022 Thursday S: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster-  A new CNN poll says that Joe Biden’s disapproval ratings are close to 60-percent now.  Wow.  Congressman Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd congressional district, says that ‘calling on Joe Biden to undergo a cognitive test is NOT partisan.’  Amen.  Everyone wants to know that the guy leading the country does NOT have Jell-O for brains.   Next, Joe Biden says he will NOT send U.S. troops to evacuate Americans fleeing Ukraine should his friend, Vladimir Putin, send Russian forces across the border into that country.  The commander-in-chief is sending his world-famous ‘border czar,’ Vice President Kamala Harris to Eastern Europe to see if she can work the same magic on the Ukrainian-Russian border she has worked on the U.S.-Mexico border.  Wow.
  21. Joe Biden Regime News I- Apparently, the Biden regime is using invasive phone hacking technology from Cellebrite to target American citizens unbeknownst to them.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues trying to put distance between them and the incredibly stupid $30,000,000 plan with which to bestow crack pipes upon BLACK Americans as some sort of ‘equity.’  Everyone recalls that when Joe Biden was a senator, a piece of crack the size of a half-dollar would get you FIVE years in the slammer, no ands, ifs, or buts.  Joe was the genius who produced this ludicrous idea and hundreds of thousands of blacks went to prison because of HIS law.   Personally, we think JOE’S leering visage should be stamped on every crack pipe so that they become collector’s items.
  22. 2022 Thursday U: Joe Biden Regime News II- Fresh on the heels of issuing a terrorism warning yesterday regarding possible trucker FREEDOM PROTESTS in the United States, the Department of Homeland Security issued another threat warning today: be on the lookout for anyone questioning Joe Biden’s (lack of) COVID-19 policy or anyone critical of it as being ‘spreaders of misinformation.’  It appears that these people are going to begin pursuing news people, bloggers, and other proponents of the rights bestowed upon us by the U.S. Constitution.  DHS: go F**K yourselves.  Finally, Joe Biden has hired a freak-o-zoid of freak-o-zoids to work at the U.S. Department of Energy.   Look up Sam Brinton and see what you think.  PJ Media and Tucker Carlson- among numerous others- reported on this loony tunes loser today and man, oh, man, the maricons are overrunning the country.  It appears the End Times are in motion…
  23. 2022 Thursday V: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- Nancy Pelosi’s special goon squads among the District of Columbia Police Department caught a break today when a report said that the atrocious beatdown given to an unconscious Trump supporter on January 06, 2021, was ‘objectively reasonable.’  Everyone who saw this horrible pummeling of the cataleptic person saw it for what it was: an unfortunate abuse of police power and yet, “Mumbles” Pelosi is proud of her ‘boys in blue,’ the now-infamous Joestapo.
  24. 2022 Thursday W: Political News I- Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says that ‘Vladimir Putin is like a mob boss, he wants to control Ukraine.  Next, Senator Jon Thune, R-SD, lambasted Joe Biden as someone who listens to UNIONS over parents on mask and vaccine mandates.  Head of the various teachers’ unions, Randi Weingarten, says schools cannot safely resume until COVID-19 numbers are near negligible.  We suspect that what happened to Jimmy Hoffa can easily happen to YOU, Ms. Weingarten.  Lighten up, already. 
  25. 2022 Thursday X: Political News II- Thug governor of Washington state- Jay Inslee, DS, signed a bill outlawing high-capacity magazines in his state other than for law enforcement, members of the military, and one or two other acceptable groups.  Chef Vladimir Gdansk says, “F**K HIM- he’s not handing over his high-capacity mags to any liberal goon.’  God bless you, Vladdie.  In other news, Congress passes a bill ending forced arbitration for worker sexual abuse claims.
  26. 2022 Thursday Y: Political News III- In shocking news today, we learned that a smartphone hacking company has thousands of customers spread across the U.S. government.   Next, now that momentum is growing to ban lawmakers from participating in stock trading, Congresswoman Elaine Luria, D-VA 2nd congressional district, is blasting this stupid idea.  She likes trading stocks and just because “Mumbles” Pelosi is now onboard with stopping stock trading by lawmakers and their spouses, Congresswoman Luria is having none of it.  Elsewhere, former U.S. senator and #MeToo casualty Al Franken, DS-MN, popped up today and said he ‘didn’t receive any due process.’  It was your own people who tossed you to the wolves, Al. 
  27. 2022 Thursday Z: Political News IV- RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said that ‘Joe Biden lied about inflation.’  In other important news, we learned that within the first month of the new abortion rules in the Lone Star State, abortions dropped by a whopping 60-percent.  See, there are other ways to go about preventing unwanted pregnancies which is preventing unwanted pregnancies via condoms, birth control pills, and going the good old ‘Turkish route’ among other things.  Let’s stop murdering our future, folks.  Thank you, Texas.   Finally, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke- running for governor in Texas because Joe Biden failed to give him a job- is backing off his promise of seizing everyone’s guns.  He thinks we don’t remember what he said?  What a dumb ass.
  28. 2022 Thursday AA: Miscellaneous News I- Liberals in Yellow Springs, Ohio, have come up short after comedian Dave Chappelle and some others lambasted them for planning to put Section 8 housing into their upscale neighborhood.  Chappelle said he would pull ALL his businesses out of the community if the daffy libs went ahead with their social-engineering plan.  It appears the libs are going to back down.  Next, an exasperated Joe Rogan said, “If you want MY advice, DON’T take MY advice.”  Good one, Joe, good one.
  29. 2022 Thursday BB: Lawsuit and Legal News- Citizens of Venice Beach, California, have had enough and are threatening to sue Los Angeles County and City for millions of dollars over the never-ending homeless crisis Democrats do not want to fix.  Meanwhile, in the Bay Area, city mayors are urging landlords and even homeowners to take homeless drug addicts, pedophiles, and bums into their homes.  (Note- amigos, for $5,000 per month, we will take in a homeless person but don’t be surprised if they begin disappearing and ending up in landfills around the state.  Illegals could be following suit.  No vamos a seguir aguantando esta mierda.  Elected leaders, please take note.
  30. 2022 Thursday CC: Crime and Punishment News- We learned today that some scalawag or group of scalawags stole approximately 60,000 honeybees from a pollinator field owned by the Giant grocery company in Pennsylvania sometime between January 28 and January 31, 2022.  The scum most likely stole them to help pollinate their pot fields so look there, first.   Meanwhile, as the other three officers involved in the killing of drug-addled George Floyd undergo their own process, a police lieutenant for the Minneapolis P.D. said the other officers should have intervened to stop Officer Derek Chauvin from squeezing the life out of the perp.
  31. 2022 Thursday DD: Tranny News of the Day- At a gender-neutral awards event, poor Adele found herself slammed for saying ‘she’s proud to be a woman.’  WTF is wrong with that?  Anyhow, the WOKIES are attacking poor Adele now.  We guess her comment made some chicks with dicks feel bad they weren’t born sans dicks.  Stop all the crying already.  Malditos llorones.
  32. 2022 Thursday EE: Amigos, nos esforzamos por no dar rodeos, por lo que proclamamos que en este blog mundialmente conocido encontrarán “sólo los hechos” y la “verdad sin ambages”.  Quédate para ver los hechos del día…

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog. I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse. I was a young cook back in the early 1960's when I commenced my culinary career. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug. El Chilote writes from Shafter, California.
