All U.S. personnel in communist China should come home…NOW.

  50. 2009 Friday: Trying to tamp down a national uproar over race, President Barack Hussein Obama acknowledged using unfortunate words in declaring that Cambridge, Mass., police had “acted stupidly” in arresting black scholar Henry Louis “Skip” Gates Jr. adding he’d invited the Harvard professor and Sgt. James Crowley, the arresting officer, for “a beer here in the White House,” the so-called “Beer Summit.”  This would become the norm for the Obama administration as he inserted himself into every racial incident over the course of his eight years in office, of which there would be many.
  51. 2010 Saturday:  Rallies to release Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian woman facing execution for adultery, occur in Paris, New York City, Ottawa, and elsewhere.  Elsewhere, the U.S. and South Korea commence carrying out military exercises with tens of thousands of troops, numerous naval vessels, and warplanes as a show of force to the North Koreans who are always talking crap.  The North wants to start something so badly

  56. 2015 Friday: After two researchers hack wirelessly into a Fiat-Chrysler automobile, 10 miles away, which enabled them to control the brakes and steering, the auto company recalls 1.4 million vehicles.  This ‘hack’ causes numerous other automakers concern that the same thing can happen to their automobiles.  Meanwhile, U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama[viii] returns to his home country of Kenya to begin a historic two-day visit.

  58. 2017 Monday: In a speech to a national Boy Scout gathering in West Virginia, President Donald J. Trump railed against his enemies and promoted his political agenda, bringing an angry reaction from some parents and former Scouts from both parties.  Oh, boo f**king hoo.  Democrats always attack their enemies, whether from the pulpits of black churches, in schools, in speeches, and everywhere else they can.  What a load of crap.
  59. 2018 Tuesday: Near Athens, Greece, swift-moving wildfires, blamed on out-of-control global warming, continue wreaking havoc across the region killing 91, injuring 104, and causing another 600 to flee into the water being rescued by boats.   Meanwhile, following a drug overdose, singer Demi Lovato[ix] finds herself in the hospital.  Elsewhere, the Syrians are down a jet after one crossed into Israeli-controlled Golan Heights and the Israeli Defense Force shot it down.  
  60. 2019 Wednesday: Senile Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III- struggling to speak and forgetting where he’s at in a sentence- reports to the U.S. Senate that ‘President Donald J. Trump was NOT cleared of obstruction of justice charges and reiterates that Russia did indeed interfere in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.’  Millions of Americans find it both shameful and personally embarrassing that the Democrats continue trotting this old fogey out to continue trying to tarnish the 45th president.  Send the old man to a rest home already.   Meanwhile, Europe is best with its hottest ever recorded temperatures causing Greta Thunberg to rush into the bunker.  In Germany, thermometers hit 104.9° F while in the Netherlands, temps hit 102.5° F which is a typical summer’s day in California.  Ah, well, we understand their anguish because we have air conditioning, and they mostly don’t.  No wonder Europeans hate America.
  61. 2020 Friday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,628,936 confirmed cases, UP by 310,939 cases, 636,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,410 deaths, and 8.917,141 confirmed recoveries, UP by 195,726 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,179,560 confirmed cases, UP by 79,759 new cases, 147,534 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,239 new deaths, and 1,252,170 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,537 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  62. 2020 Friday A: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 435,334 confirmed cases, UP 7,718, 8,186 confirmed deaths, UP by 159, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,490 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,125 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 50,009 confirmed cases, 1,482 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  63. 2020 Friday B: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,469.89, DOWN 182.44 points (-0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,363.18, DOWN 98.24 points (-0.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,215.63, DOWN 20.03 points (-0.62%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.30 per troy oz., +2.80 (+0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $22.98 per troy ounce, +0.125 (+0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $955.40 per troy oz, -1.00 (-0.10) while the price of COPPER is $2.89 per pound, +0.002 (+0.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.34 per barrel, +0.05 (+0.12%).
  64. 2020 Friday C: President Donald J. Trump signed four executive orders designed to lower drug prices for all Americans.  As things have stood for decades, Americans are screwed on health care costs because allied and other nations enjoy cheaper, more reasonable costs for their prescription drugs.  The first order would permit importation of medications from countries where the costs are more reasonable and realistic.  A nation such as Canada would be among the prime countries of export.  Another executive order removes the huge profits wholesalers enjoy- so-called middlemen- by slashing them to much more reasonable amounts.  The third order would cut the costs of insulin while the fourth would force the federal government to buy drugs for Medicare at the lower costs they are in other countries.  Now, how about allowing ALL health care providers to compete in every state as well as to offer a wider variety of plans addressing all needs of all Americans?  That would be amazing.  
  65. 2020 Friday D: Communist China orders the U.S. to close its consulate in Chengdu as retaliation for the U.S. order to them to close their spy hub in Houston.  The Chin swear they are not going to leave the Houston, Texas, consulate but they need to get their s**t and get the hell out of the country.  All U.S. personnel in communist China should come home…NOW.
  66. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 194,410,034 confirmed cases, +57,040, 4,168,451 confirmed deaths, +11,198 and 176,469,967 confirmed recoveries, +49,184.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,184,261 confirmed cases, DOWN 84,993 from yesterday’s reporting, 626,713 confirmed deaths, UP 127, [x] and 29,478,173 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,950.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [xi]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 308,271 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. Currently, Joe is shy 95,807 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xii]    
  69. 2021 Saturday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 859,398 confirmed cases, 6,458 confirmed deaths, and 841,769 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Aruba, 158th country on the list: 11,063 cases of the virus, 109 confirmed deaths and 11,466 confirmed recoveries.

[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000029.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.     In East Caribbean Dollar, one greenback equals 2.69 and in Ecuadoran Sucre, a buck equals 25,083.49 and in Egyptian Pound, one dollar equals 15.63 of theirs.

[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Delaware: $2.991.  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- Mauritius: $4.497 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,556,382,310,872 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  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 Norway, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80 billion 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.
  72. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 123 for the now-infamous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and to have visited it just one- 29 days ago.  How about that for commitment to the job?  She needs to go.  Here are today’s stats as presented by One America News[xxi] regarding the illegal alien invasion: first, the cost this day of caring for all these illegals is $582,445,632.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the world’s garbage: $224,144,146,432.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have entered the U.S. just this year- that we know of: 2,297,298.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals living in the country as we speak: 36,297,296.  Twelve years ago, we said the numbers were around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport all of them now- including the DREAMERS.
  73. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Two days before a U.S. delegation is set to arrive in communist China, the Chi-Coms slap sanctions on several Americans just to show they can do it.  Elsewhere, as more and more Americans demand the Biden regime do something to help the Cuban people, our esteemed U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken makes the surprisingly stupid statement that it appears that ‘U.S. sanctions on Cuba are not working.’  Do you think?   However, the American people plan to show support for the oppressed Cuban people as a flotilla of small vessels is departing Florida’s waters to arrive 12 miles from the Cuban coast to shoot off fireworks to show support for the Cuban people and hopefully to help some who make a bid or freedom.
  74. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Meanwhile, following the embarrassment the Chi-Coms inflicted on the U.S. by slapping sanctions on U.S. citizens, the Biden ‘state department’ is going to send a delegation to Russia to ‘talk nukes.’  How about talking about them with the frigging Chi-Coms?  Elsewhere, now that the United States has cut and run from Afghanistan, the U.S. and Iraq are negotiating a troop withdrawal by January 2022.  Since George W. Bush f**ked up Iraq and destabilized the Middle East, may as well allow Iran to absorb the country.
  75. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA, says that EVERYONE in the state must wear masks regardless of their vaccination status.  Oh, goody.  Meanwhile, in a big win for Florida, the Centers for Disease Control tosses mask regulation on cruise ships.   Elsewhere, the Democrats who fled Texas for Washington, D.C., and who took the Chi-Vi with them say they ‘don’t feel bad about causing a super-spreader event.   That’s Democrats for you, they don’t have consciences.  Sad to say but true.  In other ‘VID news, liberals are celebrating the fact that unvaccinated conservative talk show radio host Phil Valentine- someone who questioned the efficacy and the need for a Chi-Vi vaccine- is in the hospital…with COVID-19.
  76. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– Michigan lawmakers vote to strip Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of her dictatorial COVID-19 powers.  Good.  Now recall the skank.  Speaking of killer governors, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is calling on the Department of Justice to probe Joe Biden’s role in covering up Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s nursing home massacres.  Everyone wants to know this.  Sadly, the U.S. Department of Justice declines investigating massive nursing home deaths in four big Democratic states: New York, Michigan, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  Each of the governors in these states must go on trial and if convicted go to prison for the untold suffering and countless deaths they have caused.
  77. 2021 Saturday K: Political News II– A new poll shows that Joe Biden is losing major support in 85 battleground districts.  A poll claims his approval ratings still stand around 50-percent, but everyone understands that this is FAKE NEWS.  Meanwhile, never afraid to call it the way he sees it, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says that ‘the White House and BIG TECH are colluding to silence conservative speech.’  Tell us about it.   Moving on, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that the ‘infrastructure bill is biased toward Democrat-controlled cities’ meaning they are going to get the big bucks and the money-go-round will continue…unabated.  Elsewhere, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that- get this, the same things were said when Barack Hussein Obama was president back in, uh, 2010, we think- ‘irreparable harm will happen to the United States if we don’t raise the debt ceiling.’  Oh, STFU already.  No wonder our country is going down the crapper.
  78. 2021 Saturday L: Political News III– Diamond and Silk- two strong black female voices- said of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci that he is the ‘new Reverend Jim Jones.’  For all you millennials, look him up.  Last year, the dynamic duo was booted from Fox News Channel for criticizing the creepy little doctor but folks, they are right on.  Right on.  First, “Phony Tony” said NO masks were needed, then he said masks, then he said two masks, then he said maybe goggles, then that one disappeared, then he said three masks and it goes on and on and on…
  79. 2021 Saturday M: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3580 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 19, 27, 40, and Mega 08.  Out of 98,557 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $32,534.  The winning ticket was sold at Kym Café in Garden Grove, CA 92843.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #866 with a jackpot of $186 million up for grabs:  01, 04, 11, 59, 67, and Powerball 10.  Out of 76,367 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $39,281 apiece.
  80. 2021 Saturday N- One Year Ago Today: As you know, we never wish negative on anyone, as you know, we are rooting for Joe Biden to wake up from his senility and to begin doing the work of the American people rather than talking crazy about white supremacism, racism, and the cops.  We would like to see the ‘Joe of Old’ and not this stooge of Xi Jinping ransacking the country.  We can find out together- Chef Charles Smithenstein.
  81. 2022 Sunday: The left continues the lie of the planet ending soon unless we give government the power of life and death over all of us to stop climate change.  Folks, back in the day- the 1970s- Democrats were doom and gloom that another ice age was coming and woe to everyone on the planet.  We live in a dynamic world, we work hard at conserving resources while generating new ones and if we kowtow to the f**king Democrats, our planet will die because once we remove all forms of CO2, we will witness all flora die and if all flora dies, so will all faunae.  These people are ignorant dimwits screaming and crying so they can attain power now and keep it.  Time to destroy every Democrat come November and in every subsequent election along with their RINO stooges.  An ass-whooping is on the way…Chef Elvin C. McCardle.


This artwork is #0901 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Cayucos.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.


As longtime fans of the Beach Boys, if there’s ONE thing that we never understood is WHY the Beach Boys did NOT release more live albums?  Back in the day, the Rolling Stones released a live album after most of their mid-1970s releases (well, it seemed that way whereas now, they have so many live albums, it’s difficult to count) whereas the Beach Boys gave us an early live album followed by “In Concert” and “Live in London.”  We have a bootleg from back in the day featuring the lineup that made “Sunflower” and “Surf’s Up,” called “Re-Surfin’ USA,” an album one can find at RZ Record albeit under a different name- “Surf’s Up in Princeton,” recorded live in New York back in 1971, albeit currently unavailable.  Still, the Beach Boys gave us “Good Timin’: Live at Knebworth, England 1980.”  This is a great album, not as good as “In Concert” because the band has reverted back to its earlier sound for the oldies but goodies.  Also, they leave off “Good Timin’” which sure the hell should have been included on this album.  There are 22 tunes here that run the gamut of the group’s career and which features the six main Beach Boys- Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson, Alan Jardine, Mike Love, and Bruce Johnston- together live.  We hope you will seek this album out and add it to your daily listening pleasure.  We contend you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] It would appear the Department of War would become the first victim of political correctness.

[ii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iv] 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.

[v] We hope to share the music of Little Richard one day.  Not sure as to when, however.

[vi] Not sure when we will do the music of Judas Priest- if ever.

[vii] Not sure as to when we will do the music of America but please stay tuned.

[viii] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[ix] We won’t be doing the music of this skank unless the blog site is still here in 50 years.

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!
