  50. 2018 Friday: Twenty-four hours after President Donald J. Trump revoked the security clearance of “former communist” Obama era CIA Director John Brennan, the ousted Deep State apparatchik penned an opinion piece in the New York Times entitled, “President Trump’s Claims of No Collusion are Hogwash.” What an angry POS. Like a pit bull attacking another dog, this scumbag cannot let go of the Obama administration’s dastardly set-up of Trump and the people around him in order to destroy his presidency.  Meanwhile, the House Oversight Committee’s ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings demanded an ‘explanation’ from President Trump for revoking Brennan’s security clearance.  Still waiting, we think.
  51. 2019 Saturday: ISIS scumbags attack a wedding party in Kabul, Afghanistan, killing sixty-three people outright and injuring another 200-plus people. Folks, it is high time to begin capturing and stringing up EVERY remaining member of ISIS and leaving their bodies for the crows.
  52. 2020 Monday: Word is now out that New York City- under the watchful eye of Mayor Bill Di Blasio- pot-smoking, Marxist mayor- is on the brink of permanent decline thanks to the mismanagement of both Mayor Bill Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo- both Democrats. Currently, there are 13,177 vacant apartments in the city, a 177-percent increase over last year compiled with a drop of 23-percent of new lease signings.  In the past weekend of violence, thugs shot fifty-one people and four killed (76 people shot during the entire week) and no one seems to care.  Business owners boarded up their storefronts, residents fled to other states, and the duplicitous Democrats seem not to care.  Meanwhile, over the weekend, gangbanging ruffians shot sixty-four people and killed at least five in Chicago.  The time is NOW to charge these Blue State governors and Blue City mayors with DERELICTION OF DUTY.  They must face federal charges and prison time for their criminal neglect and felonious mismanagement of their locales.  Elsewhere, Nancy Pelosi calls for Congress to reconvene to pass an emergency bill to fund the USPS but not to help the tens of millions of Americans affected by the Chinese Bat Flu Virus.  Shame on her!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump- on the way out to stump across America while the Democrats commence their national convention via Zoom and Skype authorizes aid for Iowa, ravaged by violent storms over the previous week.    
  53. 2020 Monday A: Rush Limbaugh- on his radio show today- shared the news that many countries around the world are using hydroxychloroquine behind the scenes to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. He pointed out that the African nation of Uganda is a big-time user of hydroxychloroquine to fight endemic malaria. Here are their number of confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus: 1,500, 13 confirmed deaths, and 1,142 confirmed recoveries.  Leftist Democrats, what flipping more proof do you criminal scumbags require to know that Plaquenil is great for fighting this disease?  Enough is enough!  Give everyone hydroxychloroquine NOW!
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: At the Democratic Convention, here is the lineup for speakers for TONIGHT: former First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, Sen. Doug Jones, D-AL, Rep. Gwen Moore, D-WI, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-MS, Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-SC, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, D-MI, Gov. Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, D-NY, Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto, D-NV, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, former 2016 presidential candidate and Gov. John Kasich, OH, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman. What a lineup!  Interesting note: we heard through the grapevine that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is backing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat challenger- Shahid Buttar, another Democrat- in the November Elections.  Mr. Buttar is a Muslim lawyer, a person who graduated from Stanford Law School in 2003.  Boy, that takes some balls (for AOC, which is.  This is what Pelosi gets for giving the former Sandy Cortez 60 seconds to speak at the DNC Convention!  My-my!).

Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 67,461 confirmed cases, 1,781 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.

  62. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: Thanks to Joe Biden being the WORST president in U.S. history- even worse than foreign-born Barack Hussein Obama and the ‘peanut farmer’- DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,343.28, DOWN 282.12 points (-0.79%).

[xii]        
  63. 2021 Tuesday E: 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 $4.405 per gallon, $3.010 in Florida, $4.089 in Hawaii, and $3.904 in Washington state. [xiii] Let us look at one other location- Nevada: $4.062.  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- Cabo Verde: $5.363 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,652,985,232,767 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xv].  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 Taiwan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Hong Kong with $224 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.
  64. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The Navy SEAL who shot jihadist Osama bin Laden- Rob O’Neill- says that Joe Biden- aka the Antitrump- is a ‘disaster.’ “Doomed from the start”- so says a Special IG report- the plan of building a stable democracy in Afghanistan.  The Taliban, sounding like peaceniks promise peace in the country and women’s rights under the guiding light of a kind and loving (false) deity, Allah.  Sure, right, of course women are going to enjoy ‘rights.’  Meanwhile National Security Adviser to slobbering Joe Biden- Jake Sullivan- says the ‘Taliban has guaranteed the right of all those who wish to leave the country uncontested passage to the airport.’  The young adviser also says that the regime will ‘hold the Taliban accountable for any wrongdoing.’  Sure, Jake, sure.  He also made the astonishing claim that the regime planned for ‘all contingencies’ in withdrawing the military (even though they left thousands of Americans behind and thousands of fellow NATO troops).  The former ambassador to Kabul under President Barack Hussein Obama- a man who criticized President Donald J. Trump as much as he could- now says there are severe doubts as to the ‘mental fitness’ of the ‘commander in chief’ to hold the office he supposedly won on November 03, 2020.
  65. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must. Today is Day No. 147 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 53rd day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $443,797,664.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $250,306,854,912.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,656,444.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,565,444.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  66. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– As things continue worsening in Afghanistan, the Taliban is going door to door seeking Western allies as well as compiling lists of girls and women aged 12 to 45 so the fatigued veterans of the Taliban army can marry them, settle down, and have families when they are not busy lopping off heads. However, be glad because the Biden regime is going to probe Afghan deaths at the Kabul airport, you know, the ones that fell to their deaths clinging to the landing gear.  These poor people were so afraid that they threw common sense to the winds and clung to the C-130 cargo jets.  Some managed to affix themselves to the aircraft but died at the elevation due to lack of oxygen while others plummeted thousands of feet to crash on the ground.
  67. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Joe Biden is extending the mask mandate for all travel in the U.S. via airplanes, buses, and railroads until 2022.  As COVID-19 cases surge in Florida, additional school districts are defying “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ order on NO masks in schools.
  68. 2021 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $50.42 (2) AstraZeneca $59.35 (3) Johnson & Johnson $179.47 (4) BioNTech $366.27 (5) Moderna $401.86. As we say, IF you desire to know the reason for the PUSH-PUSH-PUSH to get the vaccines and now with talk of everyone having to undergo a third round of this crap, all one must do is to follow the money.  Politicians invest in BIG PHARMA, they invest their money there because the recipients who suffer adverse reactions cannot sue the companies associated with vaccines, it is as if they have a ‘get-out-of-jail-free card’ when it comes to dealing with costly lawsuits.  Who would not want to put money into stocks such as these?  We sure the heck are putting more money into the stocks of pharmaceutical companies manufacturing Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.   IF the Chi-Coms continue releasing one variant after another, the vaccine companies will continue making new boosters which the U.S. government will buy with taxpayer dollars so they can distribute them “FREE” to all Americans and across the world.  The drug makers will then donate money back to the Democrats in the ongoing money-go-round.  Like union dues and donations to Democrats, this is a tried-and-true way with which the Dems and their RINO allies reap in the big bucks. 
  69. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden News I– Apparently, a reporter asked Joe Biden on his 2010 comments on America’s duty to defend the Afghan people. His reply to them now is “F— that.”  Well, there you go, Joe.  Oh, it is interesting to note that Joe Biden is back at Camp David, ostensibly on vacation but we know the ‘Manchurian Candidate’ is undergoing his weekly tune-up.  Without such tune-ups, he would be unable to speak coherently to anyone for longer than a minute or two.  
  70. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Biden regime continues its implosion, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘America’s enemies are laughing at the U.S. over its abject failure’ in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, says of Joe Biden that he does NOT deserve to remain in office.  The White House reports that (much like our botched withdrawal from Iraq) the Taliban has obtained loads of U.S. military hardware and equipment including drones and Blackhawk helicopters (so says Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district) and other equipment which we all know will be wending its way to communist China, Russia, and Iran for evaluation.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.   Meanwhile, as drought conditions worsen in the western states, governors in the region are pushing Joe Biden to declare a disaster so FEMA can activate and begin providing help.  Finally, the regime is hinting it is going to give the ‘cold shoulder’ to former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
  71. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– We learned today that Rep. Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and a ‘cancel rent’ advocate own numerous rental properties and collected rents from all of them. How come you did not cancel rents for your clients, “Chrome Dome?”
  72. 2021 Tuesday N: Big Tech News– Senator Marco Rubio is urging Joe Biden to ban TikTok following the Chi-Coms taking a major stake in the company.
  73. 2021 Tuesday O: New York State News– New Yorkers are growing angrier with both the mayor of the BIG APPLE and the soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov. First, 52-percent of New Yorkers want to see Governor Cuomo to face criminal charges while Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio faces lawsuits over his imposition of vaccine passports for all people seeking to dine indoors or to patronize other indoor businesses.  “No shot, no proof, no service” is the order of the day (unless, of course, you are a Christian baker and a couple of hardcore homos demand you bake them a ‘wedding cake’).  One shot won’t be enough, for a customer to partake of the ‘delights’ of New York City, a customer must be fully vaccinated and when boosters arrive, one must have proof of full vaccination.  Of course, this is not going over well with residents of the Big Apple- especially black, brown, and other minorities who view the government with suspicion and the lawsuits slamming into “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio are CIVIL RIGHTS lawsuits.  You see, “Killer” Cuomo and “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio through their harsh orders are turning blacks, browns, and others into second-class citizens.
  74. 2021 Tuesday P: Texas State News– Fully-vaccinated Lone Star State Governor Greg Abbot, GOP, tested positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu although he is asymptomatic and will undergo self-imposed quarantine for 1-2 weeks. Meanwhile, the state government is calling for mortuary trailers for dispatch to the southern border amid the illegal alien-caused growing COVID-19 crisis befalling the state.   
  75. 2021 Tuesday Q: Sports News I– The comeback of Tim Tebow ends as the Jacksonville Jaguars cut him loose. In other sports news, NFL great quarterback Brett Favre says parents should not permit their kids to play tackle football until age 14.
  76. 2021 Tuesday R: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1686 what with a $242 million jackpot on the line: 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24. 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24.  Stick around and discover the winners… Out of 97,147 winning tickets, the highest winners were 67 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $408 apiece.
  77. 2021 Tuesday S: Amigos, I am afraid that the Antitrump is leaving Americans behind in Afghanistan while flying jihadis interlaced with Afghan refugees into the U.S. to conduct terror attacks, attacks the bogus regime will lay at the feet of WHITE SUPREMACISTS. Once they tar and feather white folks with whatever jihadist attacks occur here, instead of going after the Islamists themselves, they will go after white people like Hitler and the Nazis went after the Jews.  Most all of us agree that the people behind Joe Biden are using white people as their ‘Jews,’ isolate and attack them all the while turning the country into a Third World pisser.  Look, I am a Latino- “America’s favorite Cholo”- and I don’t want the country overrun with millions of Third World riffraff.  Unlike many, I am not afraid to say this, in fact, I will boldly proclaim it.  Joe has got to go; President Trump must return to the White House now.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.
  78. 2022 Wednesday: Looks like Liz Cheney went down in smoking defeat.  Good.  The sooner these ‘Republocrats’ are vanquished, the sooner we can reclaim America and restore law and order.  Oh, the RINOs are crying, oh, the Democrats sniveling, but they did not turn out to save her sorry ass as she was begging them.           Let me say something about Alaska’s election system, the ‘ranked choice voting.’  What a bunch of bullshit, much like California’s corrupt ‘top two vote-getters’ facing off in the general.  Anything that is not one U.S. citizen one vote is bogus, corrupt, and must go.  We must vote on Election Day.  Paper ballots.  NO skullduggery.  Absentee ballots must come postmarked no later than Election Day.  I mean, does the IRS allow 2, 3, 4, or more weeks for returns to come in past April 15?  Nope. Besides- as in California thanks to our corrupt system- the American Independent Party, the Libertarian Party, the Peace and Freedom Party, and the Green Party are NEVER on the general election ballot.  Why aren’t they launching all sorts of lawsuits and taking this crap up to the U.S. Supreme Court and getting this corrupt, Democrat-favoring system tossed on the garbage heap?  I’m telling you.  Let us know what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0925 a 24” x 36” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “The Posse.”  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.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album to hit record store shelves is another lengthy compilation: “Keep an Eye on Summer- the Beach Boys Sessions 1964,” an album that came out on December 02, 2014.  There are almost 50 tunes here culled from the Beach Boys efforts in 1964, variations upon variations, the oddball unreleased live and studio tracks, and a plethora of material that veteran completists will most definitely want to add to their collections.   We hope you will seek this album out and that you will add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended music- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Author: Chef Gervais "The Krink" Krinkelmeier

Our personal identity and security are now very important so I, like everyone else at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day has had local Bakersfield, California, up-and-coming street artist, Simone, create some portraits of me. The problem is in this hyper age of partisanship and the far left going bonkers, we have had to cut back on how much of ourselves we share with the readership. Sad to say, it sucks especially for someone such as me who lives in a small community and owns a business. I have been in professional foodservice for a long, long time and have known Stinkbug for an equally long time. My name is pronounced KRONK-L-MYER but everyone calls me "The Krink."
