Colonel Pierre “Gars Pierre” Langlais in charge of the tactical situation and Colonel Christian de Castries in charge of the strategic situation.  The paratroopers are determined to get the battle back on their plan rather than the enemies and the next steps will be to head out into the scrub and eliminate the Viet Minh AA batteries as well as to drive the small PA units making the main airfield unusable except at certain times.  
  38. 1955 Friday: East Germany was granted full sovereignty by its occupying power, the U.S.S.R.  Of course, East Germany would remain a puppet state until the fall of the Soviet Union.   The former Nazis would become ‘good communists’ now.

  67. 2018 Sunday: After things not going well between President Donald J. Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the latter boards his armored train and heads to Beijing so he can powwow with Chinese dictator Xi Jinping.  Meanwhile, in the Siberian city of Kemerovo, a fire breaks out at a shopping mall that claims the lives of at least 64 and injures numerous others.  Elsewhere, famed blues-psychedelic-rock vocalist Mike Harrison of the British band, Spooky Tooth[vii], died in his hometown of Carlisle, Cumberland, England at age 72 on this date.

  70. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN’S FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE IN 65 DAYS- An extremely fatigued, slow-moving, mumbling, stumbling Joe Biden gave his first official press conference today.  He began mumbling through his pre-rehearsed lines, clearing his throat, looking furtively around the room, and spewing whatever the voice in his earpiece told him to spew.  This was extremely embarrassing for the American people and in the eyes of the world, deeply humiliating.  It is clear that Joe Biden is NOT his own man but a marionette on a string being danced about by someone else.   Within 3 minutes starting at 10:29 A.M. PDT he moved to questions by 10:32 with Zeke from the Associated Press getting the first shot.  Joe said, “I was elected to solve problems,” said Joe.   Regarding the border, Joe Biden says, “Nothing has changed, it happens every year, hundreds of thousands of illegals come here every year.”  He says it’s ‘NOT because he’s a good guy but it’s because this is the safest time not to die in the desert coming here.’  Wow, Joe.  Joe then blamed President Donald J. Trump for ‘dismantling the system, defunding HHS, limiting the number of beds available, and doing all sorts of other evil things that poor old Joe is now having to rebuild.’  (Note- Joe, just build the wall and f**king deport them all!).  Joe lied by saying he is sending back ‘thousands, tens of thousands of people who are over age 18 and single as well as vast majorities of families.’  He said that ‘they are not crossing our border.’   (Joe went about 62 minutes and answered questions from approximately 13-14 reporters.  Congrats, Joe, you didn’t topple over, and blood did not start flowing out of your eyes, ears, and nostrils).[viii] 
  71. 2021 Thursday A: LOGAN ACT VIOLATIONS- Information is beginning to arise showing that former U.S. Secretary of State (and current climate change czar) John F. Kerry committed numerous Logan Act violations by conducting shadow diplomacy behind the Trump administration’s back with all manner of noxious toadstools such as Iran, the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Venezuelans, and every other crap-hole country in the world.  Mr. Kerry should be doing time in Ft. Leavenworth for his crimes.
  72. 2021 Thursday B: POLITICAL NEWS I- a recent report shows that moderate Democrats outperformed their crazier left-wing Democrats in the 2020 Elections, yet the loony tunes liberal losers seem to retain control.   Next, Senator Bernie Sanders- breaking with the Biden administration- is demanding higher taxes than those proposed by Biden and his Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.  Communism is expensive to fund.  Next, Joe Biden is planning on spending another $10 billion to get more shots into arms and has announced that he is going to double his pledge of getting 100 million vaccines administered in his first 100 days to 200 million doses.   In other fascinating news, the U.S. Secret Service tried to CONCEAL from the eyes of the American people a gun purchase by Hunter Biden.  Need that money to fend off people trying to steal his crack cocaine.
  73. 2021 Thursday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- The Atlanta Police Department arrested a man walking around the city carrying a concealed rifle and handguns.  Another fellow with a sex addiction?  Speaking of firearms, a federal appeals court in Hawaii has ruled that Americans have no intrinsic rights to open or conceal carry firearms of any kind.  Uh, okay.  Elsewhere, the murdering (allegedly) POS Syrian refugee who shot up King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier in the week appeared in court for the first time.  The judge denied Mr. Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa bail pending a mental health evaluation.   The scumbag should not be getting bail of any sort.  Period.   Next, Joe Biden backs a Supreme Court ruling on recent ruling in which law enforcement confiscated some schmo’s guns.
  74. 2021 Thursday D: COVID-19 CHI-VI- Scientists are studying four different possible origins for the Wuhan Virus Pandemic encircling the globe for about the fourth time now.  The Chi-Coms swear ‘nothing to see here’ and that ‘the U.S. Army snuck it into our country.’  Oh, please, you guys are communists, you are a bunch of lying f**ks.  Meanwhile, AstraZeneca continues to swear that despite all the claims to the contrary and controversy surrounding their vaccine for the China Virus, it’s still 76-percent effective.   Elsewhere, Empire State Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo finds himself in yet another crossfire, this time over him, his family, and sycophants receiving COVID-19 tests when very few tests were available to John and Jane Q. Public, the “Killer Governor” went behind the scenes and did what he needed to do for him, his family, and his hangers-on.  This is yet another impeachable offense facing the so-called “Lov Gov.”  Finally, the Biden administration is going to partner with dialysis clinics so the vaccines can be distributed to more people on a faster basis.
  75. 2021 Thursday E: POLITICAL NEWS II- When asked about him supporting elimination of the filibuster,[ix] Joe Biden hemmed and hawed about that.  Next, some ignorant reporter was asking Joe Biden if he were going to run again, if “Kooky Kamala” would be his running mate, and if he thought he would be running against President Donald J. Trump in 2024.  Even for us, this is incredibly stupid, and we would never ask anything about 2022, much less 2024.  Most people believe Joe is not going to be in office for a year, much less four, so why ask the old bugger if he will be seeking a second term, whether Ms. Sleep-her-way-to-the-Top will be his running mate, and whether the guy from whom he stole the election will be running  to win it back- a third time.  WTF?  This question, however, caused Joe Biden to begin mumbling and whispering.   
  76. 2021 Thursday F: POLITICAL NEWS III- Scandal-ridden former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is considering a run to replace retiring Senator Roy Blunt.  The Republican former governor was involved in a steamy sex scandal and most people in the state are praying that someone better will step up and replace Senator Blunt.  We shall see.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says, ‘H.R. 1 is the single most dangerous bill in Congress today.’  Note- Georgia just passed some hardcore voting restriction laws designed to thwart H.R. 1.  Meanwhile, former CBP boss Tom Homan says that ‘the appointment of “Kooky Kamala” to be the new ‘Border Czar’ has to be the absolute worst person for the job.’  NO one respects “Kooky” because (1) she is unlikable, (2) unqualified, and (3) as untalented as they come.  She will make things far worse than they already are.   Next, according to Facebook’s oversight board, the permanent ban of President Donald J. Trump might not be so permanent (they are afraid that he is developing a superior social media product and want to cut him some slack so perhaps he will be lulled into complacency and won’t follow through).  Finally, we learn that Google received its ‘monopoly’ following their aid to President Barack Hussein Obama’s successful re-election bid.  No wonder the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day at Google Blogger soon found itself behind Google’s blockade.
  77. 2021 Thursday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- A rare Vincent Van Gogh painting of Paris is going up for auction.   Meanwhile, the Olympic Torch Relay kicks off under the cloud of the Chinese Virus.  Elsewhere, first time jobless claims last week fell to 684,000 new ones which is the best number since the start of the pandemic. Another 242,00 filed for special pandemic relief last week.  In total, 4.1 million workers remain on unemployment benefits.   Meanwhile, HHS is going to partner with the Pentagon to take two Texas military bases, Fort Bliss and Lackland Air Force Base so they can send illegal alien brats there to stay.   The Biden administration is struggling to find holding pens for all the illegals which is why partnering with private prisons across the U.S. would be a great way to house people who are already going to end up being imprisoned a taste of what’s to come.  Viva El Norte!
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,683,860 confirmed cases, +579,564, 2,742,357  confirmed deaths, +9,863, and 70,731,503 confirmed recoveries, +338,716.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,223,587 confirmed cases, up 61,840 from yesterday’s reporting, 550,726 confirmed deaths, UP 1,315, and 117,401,619 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. 
  79. 2021 Thursday I: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,648,021 confirmed cases (same as yesterday’s count), 57,909 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the second highest state after California- Texas: currently, they have 2,762,648 confirmed cases, 47,701 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Switzerland, home of (allegedly) lots of Nazi loot: 588,118 cases of the virus, 10,247 confirmed deaths and 317,600 confirmed recoveries.

  82. 2021 Thursday L: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.885 per gallon, $3.630 in Hawaii, and $3.323 in Washington state.[xiv]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,093,608,650,950 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  83. 2021 Thursday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV- South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds, Republican, said he’d like to see the Biden administration begin grabbing legally-owned firearms from the American people.  Next, Joe Biden defends his crappy border stance, saying that all kids who make it across will not be returned home, that the American people will take care of them.  He also blames President Donald J. Trump for the BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE for which he and his administration bear FULL RESPONSIBILITY.[xvi]  Joe, for Christ’s sake (If you still believe in His teachings), BUILD THE WALL, AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  Stop giving them COVID-19 relief checks, stop giving them hotel accommodations, we have Americans sleeping in the streets, in their cars, and in back alleyways, stop with the fricking illegal aliens.  Enough is flipping enough already![xvii]  Meanwhile, Joe Biden slaps down another Trump-era policy by handing the Palestinians $15 million of taxpayer monies to help them combat the Chinese Virus.  WTF!  Elsewhere, Axios says workers installed bullet-proof doors in the U.S. House of Representatives today.    
  84. 2021 Thursday N: POLITICAL NEWS V- New California Attorney General Rob Bonta once tried to recruit communists to work within state government.  WTF?  West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey blasts the Biden administration for trying to advance its crackpot climate change agenda via its COVID-19 Relief Bill and through its upcoming ‘infrastructure bill.’   Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo blasts those saying he and his family jumped to the head of the line in getting both Chi-Vi tests and immunizations.  He would never, never, do something as egregious as this, yet millions of Americans believe that he did.  Cuomo, just frigging resign before they complete the ethics probe into your criminal actions.[xviii]  In other news, the White House and the U.S. Secret Service is denying anyone did anything to cover up son, Hunter’s mishandling of a gun back in 2018.[xix]  NO one would ever do anything like that or so they claim.  Finally, the Arizona State Attorney General Mark Brnovich sues the Biden administration over the ban on tax cuts contained within the Biden COVID-19 PORKULUS RELIEF BILL.  What’s up with that, Joe?
  85. 2021 Thursday O: POLITICAL NEWS VI- Joe Biden is facing criticism from across the board over his stumble-bom performance at his ‘press conference’ today what with reading from a binder of notes, answering pre-arranged questions, and not toppling over in deep, gape-mouthed sleep.  He has his defenders but folks, he answered NO questions about the jihadist shooter in Boulder, Colorado, did not say it was an ACT OF HATE as only ‘white people’ as we are constantly told are the ONLY HATERS in the world.  The reporters congratulated Joe Biden on ‘being such a great guy that his personal magnetism is drawing millions of illegal aliens to flood into our country.’  This man MUST GO NOW.
  86. 2021 Thursday P: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS I- The Suez Canal may be out of commission now for months seeing as how a massive container ship ran aground blocking the channel.  There are 100 ships on both sides, trying to make passage which will now be impossible.  This will lead to higher prices and less goods for the world market.  Meanwhile,  the Chi-Coms are facing boycotts by numerous companies and corporations over their imprisonment of 1-2 million Uighur Muslims in concentration camps in Xinjiang Province.  Nike is among the big names with numerous others following close behind.  Will the Chi-Coms submit to global pressure?  Most likely not.  Communists always need a good ass-whooping before they pullback from their criminal actions.  
  87. 2021 Thursday Q: OTHER NEWS- Jessica Walters- star of the old show, “Arrested Development,” has died at age 80.  Next, Rutgers University will require proof of vaccination for the Chi-Vi before one can return to classes in the fall.  Elsewhere, the CEO of Twitter- Jack “Rasputin” Dorsey- mocks yes/no questions with a poll of some sort.  Screw him.   Meanwhile, decrepit old Joe Biden says the battle over voting rights (H.R. 1 federal takeover of the voting system) ‘makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.’  F**k you, Joe.  Next, Scott Hennen/ partner, Flag Family Media & Fieldstone Group reported to Newsmax Grant Stinchfield reports that all sorts of evidence showing passports from Haiti, Cuban licenses, air tickets from Colombia, and welcome wagon slips informing people where to cross, how to cross, when to cross,  and once in the United States where to go.  The country is being overrun and the ‘Biden administration’ could give a flying f**k.  All patriotic Americans arm up and head to the border.  NOW.  
  88. 2021 Thursday R: OTHER NEWS II- Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that the Chi-Coms don’t fear our commander-in-chief, Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, a recent Zogby poll says that most Americans believe progressive ideas on the Cancel Culture, constant blubbering about race, gender, evil white people, and other issues are weakening the United States from within yet there are very few brave souls willing to combat it.  Friends, the world is in the fight of its lives, do we permit leftists and left-wing cultures to overrun and destroy conservative values, freedom from tyranny, and liberty for all or do we begin fighting back?  We say, fight back and destroy them.  Elsewhere, RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia signed a sweeping new elections law into effect today, hoping to cover for what he did in the 2020 Presidential Election.  What difference does it make when you will sign a consent order allowing Stacey Abrams to steal the 2022 Mid-Term Elections?  Impeach and remove this POS.
  89. 2021 Thursday S: QUIP OF THE DAY FROM CHEF ITZI- Canada had better hope the U.S. does not journey down the path of socialism-communism because if it does, their nation could very well become our ‘Tibet:’ a place to send excess population as well as a place to exploit of its resources.  Mexico had better be careful, too, we might absorb them.

[i] A hodgepodge of foreign communists, many coming from the United States, France, Great Britain, and other European and Latin American countries.  Famed novelist Ernest Hemingway writes about one such individual portrayed by Gary Cooper in the film adaptation of his book, “For Whom the Bell Tolls.”

[ii] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the Rising Sons or Fever Tree.

[iii] We are not sure when we will promote the music of Oakland’s Tower of Power, but you can be sure that we will do so when we begin promoting the music of funk-rock, horn-powered bands.

[iv] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “Yesterday and Today,” appeared on Friday, 18-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.  The album containing the hit, “Happy Together,” was presented on Friday, 06-September-2013.  Please seek it out and add it to your collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[viii] Critics blast Joe Biden for signing 37 executive orders while doing just one monotonous news conference.

[ix] Joe Biden echoed his crazy left-wing Democrats by decrying the Senate filibuster as a relic of the Jim Crow Era.  Joe, Democrats were the party that opposed civil rights, the party of slavery, Jim Crow, red-lining, lynching, the KKK, burning crosses, firehoses and police dogs and Bull Connor busting open heads with billy clubs and night sticks.  Democrats started the Civil War, fought the Civil War, and their northern brethren, the Copperheads defended them in Congress.  Shut up about racism and Jim Crow and racial hatred, the Democratic Party personifies race hatred and white supremacy.  Enough is enough.

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

[xiv] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xv] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xvi] Republicans are openly disputing and mocking the Biden border claims. 

[xvii] The mentally challenged old bugger- proud of his border job- still won’t commit to transparency along the southern border.

[xviii] The story is even worse than ever we believed.  Cuomo had medical professionals visit the homes of his family members and his well-connected friends and then the tests were put at the front of the line in state laboratories.  So says the Fox News Channel.

[xix] Two parts to this story- Hunter lied on an FBI background check that he did NOT use drugs just as he and his brother Beau’s wife dumped a gun into a garbage can near a school and then went back to recover it and found that it had walked.  Neither crime is good. See this story- Hunter Biden gun incident at market in 2018 led to police investigation | Fox News– as well as this one- Hunter Biden may have committed felony by reportedly stating he’s not addicted to drugs on a gun background check (washingtonexaminer.com).

Back in the day, I was working at a hotel in Bakersfield, California, down on Union Avenue where I met Stinkbug. It was still nice at the time, and the area was still the original "restaurant row" of the city. Now, I am over 70 years old and work over in Santa Barbara, CA, as a food and beverage director for a fine-dining country club. The pictures you see here of me are facsimiles created by up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the famed Simone. Good work, dude, good work.
