  73. 2019 Monday: In response to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard downing a U.S. drone over the Persian Gulf, President Donald J. Trump targets Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other Iranian thugs with sanctions.  Meanwhile, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Mark Esper assumed his position on this date.  He served under President Donald J. Trump from today until July 15, 2019.  A so-called Republican, he would become the 27th U.S. secretary of defense on July 23 and would serve in this position until President Trump fired his worthless, traitorous butt on November 09, 2020.
  74. 2020 Wednesday: A three judge panel of the D.C. Court of Appeals tells D.C. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan to DROP the case against former national security advisor and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.) that both the prosecutors and the U.S. Department of Justice already asked him to end.  At the time of publication, we have not yet heard whether this political activist judge will do what was asked of him or whether he will continue trying to go after Flynn.  It is clear to everyone with half-a-brain or more that it’s OVER, the man has been unfairly punished and forced into pleading guilty to save his family members.  It has cost him $6.7 million to defend himself from this frivolous batch of bulls**t.
  75. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Kung Flu stats for the world today: 9,237,691 confirmed cases, 476,911 confirmed deaths, and 4,613,425 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,425,361 confirmed cases, 123,726 confirmed deaths, and 746,563 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, the NOT-so-Golden State first: 190,222 confirmed cases, 5,632 confirmed deaths, and as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 819 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 673 confirmed recoveries.  Lastly, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,826 confirmed cases, 1,293 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  For the fun of it, let’s look at the numbers for Michigan: 68,555 confirmed cases, 6,114 confirmed deaths, but sadly, Napoleonic Governor Gretchen Whitmer WON’T release the number of confirmed recoveries.

Trump announces he will sign an executive order that will forbid the desecration of federal monuments or memorials with the possibility of 10 years in federal prison.  We have seen uncontrolled mobs, filled with communists, and funded by the Chinese Communist Party (or so we believe) that the minute a horrible crime like the slaying of George Floyd occurs, take to the streets across the nation destroying everything in their path as though they were reincarnations of Mao Zedong’s Red Guards.  Sign it, Mr. President, sign it, and let’s see this scum go to PRISON for good.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 300,702 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.

  82. 2021 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 by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.249 per gallon, $2.939 in Florida, $3.993 in Hawaii, and $3.670 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- New Jersey: $3.082.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Bahamas: $3.941 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,444,594,224,863 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiii]
  83. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #93 for Willie Brown’s mattress, the laughing jackal, aka the ‘border czar’ aka “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this job and yet to have visited the southern border.  Reportedly, she is going to go tomorrow so as to beat President Donald J. Trump who is visiting the border with Texas state and GOP officials this upcoming Wednesday, June 30.   Next, here are today’s stats as presented by One America News: (1) Cost this day for caring for the illegal aliens in the country: $530,048,320.  (2) Total Cost this year of caring for infestation: $191,215,026,176.  Next, (3) numbers of illegals who have crossed this year: 1.959,861.  Finally, (4) Total estimated number of illegal aliens lurking in the country: 35,959,800.  (Note- our blog has been around since 2009 and back then, we estimated the number of illegal aliens in the country at 35-50 million.  Now, a dozen years later, we believe the number of illegals infesting the country is around 75 is around 75-100 million.  Time to begin scooping up this flotsam and jetsam of humanity and loading them aboard trains, planes, airliners, buses, and even freighters and returning them to Tierra del Fuego.  Let them march up from the tip of South America back to the border where hopefully, we will have lain in minefields, antipersonnel ditches and obstacles, and other impediments to the illegal alien invasion.  It must stop now).
  84. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– The BBC is reporting that the conditions in which illegal alien brats are languishing is absolutely horrific and is an insult to all nations claiming to respect ‘human rights.’  Meanwhile, we continue hearing that the illegal alien brats able to escape these gulags are being shuttled across the country and handed over to foster parents who are getting paid handsomely to care for these noncitizen children.  Cheaper to send them home.  NOW.  Rep. Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Chris Salcedo of Newsmax TV that the federal government is ignoring all laws connected with illegals by giving them housing vouchers, free travel, food, transportation, and even stimulus checks which is insane, costing the American taxpayers, and simply must stop.  (Note- and ‘hairy-legs Joe’ wonders why the American people continue buying more firearms, ammo, and anything else they can with which to defend themselves from both illegal aliens and out-of-control, oppressive federal government).
  85. : Foreign News / Overseas News I– Israel opposes the reentry of the United States into the Iran nuclear deal, aka the JCPOA.  Next, over allegations of the rampant use of SLAVE LABOR in Chi-Com concentration camps, the United States is banning imports of materials used in solar panels from that hellhole of a nation.  Good.  Let’s make everything we can here in the United States- like we used to do.   Meanwhile, the FREEDOM FIGHTERS of the TRUE CHINA- Taiwan- are condemning the shuttering of the Apple Daily, a true voice for the pro-democracy, pro-freedom movement in Hong Kong.  The Chi-Coms have arrested many upper echelon employees and have closed the paper down as of today.  Thank you, Taiwan, for being so bold in calling out this evil travesty.  “Pro-China Joe” Biden most certainly won’t.  Elsewhere, there is fear that with Benjamin Netanyahu no longer the prime minister of Israel that all the gains made by the Abraham Accords could go out the window.  That would be sad.   Finally, German Fuhrer Angela Merkel says that Europe is on ‘thin ice’ due to the rise of the Delta variant of the Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus running amok there.  Uh, okay.
  86. 2021 Thursday IPolitical News I– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, to Newsmax TV: “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the ‘border czar,’ is visiting the wrong part of the border tomorrow.   Next, former governor and UN ambassador Nikki Haley is scheduled to give the keynote address at Iowa’s Annual Lincoln Day GOP dinner fueling speculation that she may run for the White House in 2024.  (Note- don’t bother, Nikki, we place you in the same category as other losers such as John McCain, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, and other detestable RINOs.  Still, it’s your humiliation).
  87. 2021 Thursday J:  Political News II– As the witch hunt grinds on and on, the New York State Bar Association has suspended the law license of “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani, also the attorney of President Donald J. Trump.  These people should be ashamed.  New York could care less about all the riots that happened last summer, the countless businesses burned, the people injured and even killed; no, all they care about is anyone on the Trump team.  F**k them.  Speaking of Rudy, he said that outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, CPUSA, legacy is rising crime and nothing else.
  88. 2021 Thursday K: Political News III– Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, says that tomorrow’s visit by “Kooky Kamala” Harris to the southern border is going to use illegal alien kids as photo props.  Sad.   Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says ‘it’s time to fire Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci over his incompetence.’  Next, the Biden regime and a bipartisan group of senators (meaning Democratic-Socialists and obsequious RINOs) have arrived at a deal on infrastructure.  Elsewhere, the Democrat-controlled Congress has repealed Trump-era safeguards imposed on payday lenders.
  89. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– FBI Director Chris Wray is defending his request for $10 billion for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The FBI must monitor them thar white supremacists, you know.  Ain’t them white supremacists Democrats?  You got that right, too.   Next, following Catholic bishops determining that drooling Joe Biden is not eligible for receiving Holy Communion, Democrats are calling for reviews of tax-exempt statuses for numerous Christian houses of worship.  (Note- the Dems will NEVER go after Muslims, folks, too scary and too dangerous for them to do so).  In other Biden regime news, he is going to relocate Afghans who have aided the Americans and allied troops in Afghanistan.  Good.  In other Biden regime news, the feds say that ‘employment is significantly down thanks to business owners not hiring.’  (Note- they can’t pay the wages it would take to entice recalcitrant employees to return to work).
  90. 2021 Thursday M: California State News– Things continue going bad to worse for Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in that the 30 days period with which to permit timid voters who signed the recall petitions to back out, out of the nearly 2 million valid signatures, only 43 people retracted their names.  Forty-three people, folks, which tells us just how much the people of this state detest the little prick.  Add to that the fact that HE LIED to the citizens of the Golden State by claiming ‘his administration performed fire maintenance on more than 90,000 acres within the state when in actuality, he did less than 12,000.  (Note- watch for the Delta variant of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to be out of control around Election Day so the wimpy governor can try to frighten voters into not going to the polls to oust him.  It won’t work).  Speaking of the Golden State, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca is urging for the declaration of a state of emergency over the homelessness problem that sees homeless people camped out on public beaches, in the streets, back alleyways, in abandoned buildings, vacant lots, parking garages, the city is going to hell and needs help.  Declare the emergency, “Nazi Newsom!”
  91. 2021 Thursday N: U.S. Military News– Reportedly, in two weeks, the U.S. will have just 650 troops stationed in Afghanistan.  Meanwhile, the pathetic political hack who serves as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, tries to normalize the bogus Critical Race Theory (which we now view as CRIMINAL RACE THEORY), he brags about reading ‘Marx, Mao, Lenin,’ and other left-wing murderers and hacks.  Friends, General Mark Milley is akin to Nazi Generals Alfred Jodl and Wilhelm Keitel, both of whom went to the gallows in the aftermath of World War II.   This is what happens to brown-nosing political hacks and it’s time these losers were the ones culled from the herd, not brave patriots.  We wish he were a patriot like General George S. Patton or Field Marshal Douglas MacArthur but he’s not- he’s a hack.
  92. 2022 Friday: Where we were last year: The Joe Biden regime continues to stumble along, looking for white supremacists wherever they can find them even though none exist and IF they did exist, they would be among the Democrats as that is who fleshed out the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan.  Still, all components of the Executive and Legislative branches continue beating the drums seeking them out wherever they can find them so they can punish them.  How soon before drooling Joe Biden requests the Chi-Coms send him some troops so he can maintain order in the streets?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Poor Brian Wilson, beset by mental troubles, either caused by familial or drug-induced problems was under the control of one of the EVILEST people in the annals of modern music- Dr. Eugene Landy who was hired originally by the other Beach Boys to keep poor Brian on the straight and narrow.  Somehow, this evil scumbag got control of Wilson in ways similar to what happened to Britney Spears- at a later date- only this despicable disgrace to the mental health community got his name and others among his employees as cowriters on Brian Wilson’s tunes so they could suck every cent possible out of one of America’s greatest composers.  Brian recorded a solo album- his first- the self-titled “Brian Wilson,” an album that came out on July 12, 1988.  Brian brought in a competent lot of musicians to help him craft this album and given the circumstances- with Landy or one of his minions spying on Wilson at all hours of the day and night- is worth checking out.  In later years, Landy and his troll-like helpers have had their names stripped from the album which is good because all of them deserve to be doing long prison terms in maximum-security facilities.  Seek it out, give it a listen, and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

This is a cartoon caricature of me when I was working at a restaurant in Wasco, CA, my hometown. The up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist Simone did portraits of each of us here at the blog so I hope you like them as much as I, ahem, do. The important thing for us as foodservice business owners is that we protect our identities because in the age of the Cancel Culture, IF Marxist punks leads boycotts against us, it can destroy businesses that have been around for years, if not decades. Ah, well, I joined the Chefs de Cuisine of Greater Bakersfield, ACF, not long after it was chartered and am still a member even though the chapter is no longer in operation. I began working in foodservice in the late 1960’s, moved from Wasco, CA, to Monterey, CA, and then returned to my hometown in 2004. I have been a foodserver, a Mixologist, and am a Certified Cook. I am equally at home in both the kitchen and behind the bar (and on the floor, too). My passions are numerous, and my favorite is working in the bakery whenever I have had a chance. Bea O’Malley writes from her hometown of Wasco, California Bea O’Malley is a proud member of the Democratic Party.
