244. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 01, 2022

2022 Thursday: Some of my GOP colleagues are upset with me over my brash defenses of the Democratic Party and of President Joseph R. Biden. With respect to them, I call things the way I see them and to me- even though Donald Trump did some good things- he is a clear and present danger to our country. Bill Maher’s correct when he says, ‘there’s nothing wrong with having a conspiracy to get rid of President Trump.’

  69. 2020 Tuesday: As of today, Real Clear Politics average polling shows “Gropin’ Joe” Biden with a lead of 49.6-43.4-percent over President Donald J. Trump.  Left-wing online media reports that President Trump will win in a massive landslide victory on Election Day but by Sunday as all the extra leftist mail-in ballots roll in, he will lose in a massive landslide.  Hence why conservatives are now registering illegal aliens around the country so they can vote, too.  If the Dems want to play this game, so can we.  Next, ICE reports the arrests of more than 2,000 illegal aliens around the country, 86-percent of whom had criminal records and were sheltered by sanctuary cities and states. The arrestees and soon to be deportees came from a whopping 80 different countries.  Bon voyage, illegal aliens, bon voyage.  Meanwhile, shortly after midnight today, peaceful protesters showed up outside the home of Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler’s[vi] home and attempted to set it ablaze with him aside.  Thank God they were peaceful!  Elsewhere, Massachusetts Rep. Joseph Kennedy III (another flipping Kennedy) is primarying Senator Ed Markey, a fellow Democrat, as the ‘Curse of AOC’ continues setting up old-timer Democrats for tragic downfalls.  However, in this case, the Baby Evita is backing Markey because he leapt atop the Green New Deal sparing his political life.  Hey: why won’t House Speaker “Mumbles” Nancy Pelosi debate her Democratic challenger, Shahid Buttar, a Muslim attorney, prior to the November elections?  Madam Pelosi, double up on the Prevagen and get your wrinkly old butt out there and debate this man!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump flies to Kenosha, Wisconsin, to meet with local, state, and federal law enforcement officers and officials and to tour the damage that befell the once-prosperous community prior to the cops shooting thug George Blake seven times in the back as he reached for a weapon in his car and then when Antifa and Black Lives Matter arrived on scene and destroyed much of the municipality.   
  70. : New York City Mayor Bill di Blasio, a drooling moron if ever one existed, says taxes are going to go UP because the wealthy are fleeing the city as it collapses all around him.  He promises to build affordable housing in WHITE areas so he can end segregation and that he will continue defunding the cops.  Before this lunatic raises taxes, how about him writing a BIG CHECK to fill the city’s coffers and how about his wife repaying- with interest- all the money she allegedly siphoned off the city government in her bogus, left-wing commie plans.  The city collects $11 billion in income taxes every year, 80-percent of which goes to cover pension and retirement plans for city workers.  Hmmm, sounds familiar…like the state of California?  Yikes. 
  71. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 25,334,339 confirmed cases, UP by 283,161 cases, 848,084 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,498 deaths, and 16,669,974 confirmed recoveries, UP by 218,956 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,118,204 confirmed cases, UP by 36,832 new cases, 186,348 confirmed deaths, UP by 478 new deaths, and 3,218,565 confirmed recoveries, UP by 16,108 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday C: 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: 707,797 confirmed cases, 13,018 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,472 confirmed cases, 70 confirmed deaths, and 2,578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 74,635 confirmed cases, 1,915 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 435,510 confirmed number of cases, and this week, a scaling DOWN in the number of reported deaths from 32,864 August 25, 2020, to 25,331 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  This tells us that the worst governor in the country, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, is feeling the heat for the massive number of seniors he murdered by sending COVID-19-infected patients into the state’s nursing homes.   We hope to see this POS forced to resign as President Richard M. Nixon did and move into obscurity, the end of the ‘Cuomo Dynasty.’  Go get ‘em, U.S. Department of Justice, go get ‘em!
  73. 2020 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,645.66, UP 215.61 points (+0.76%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,939.67, UP 164.21 points (+1.39%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,526.65, UP 26.34 points (+0.75%).  The price of GOLD is $1,975.20 per troy oz., -3.7 (-0.187%) while the price of SILVER is $28.30 per troy ounce, -0.345 (-1.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.80 per troy oz, -3.03 (-0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $3.21 per pound, -0.007 (-0.23%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,298.00 per troy oz., -11.8 (-0.51).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.98 per barrel, +0.22 (+0.51%).  Today, COFFEE is $129.80 per metric ton, -1.95 (-1.48).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.83 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  74. 2020 Tuesday E: Bret Baier of Fox News Channel’s Special Report reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was captured on videotape getting her hair done at a San Francisco hairdresser’s shop sans any mask or any protective gear.  When caught by reporters, she claims to ‘always follow the science’ which is great- why don’t you and the rest of your fellow Democrats follow the science on the amount of pain fetuses feel as they are undergoing an abortion procedure?   Meanwhile, tonight will be the 97th straight day of violent mob actions in the city of Portland, Oregon.  The governor is requesting help from around Oregon state but several sheriffs’ departments in the state as well as a police fraternal organization say “NO” because nothing is happening to the scum law enforcement arrests.  In Los Angeles, protests continue outside a Sheriff’s substation following the police shooting of a black man there the previous night.   Finally, Vice President Mike Pence was touring and speaking in “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, with BIG CROWDS in attendance.  No one knows where either Joe Biden or his running mate, uh, what’s her name- Kamala Harris- Willie Brown’s alleged bed buddy is.  They must ‘have it in the bag.’

[viii]   
  76. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 341,339 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 62,869 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  81. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Resistance fighters in the Panjshir Valley are throwing back Taliban thugs.  CNN claims that under the terms of a secret agreement with the United States, the Taliban are escorting Americans to safety.  We hear, however, that that simply is not true as women are being raped, children beaten, and men summarily killed in the streets.  Rep. Victoria Spartz, R-IN 5th CD, is demanding to know the HONEST number of Americans left in Afghanistan.
  82. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 161 for the MIA ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border crisis and Day No. 68 since her singular visit to the southern border.  Here are today’s figures regarding the illegal alien invasion.  First, the cost just this day is $536,643,968.  The fact that we are throwing this money down a crapper to care for Third World invaders is beyond comprehension.  Shocking, absolutely shocking.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the vermin this year: $266,838,065,182.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, for the veterans, for all those slain or wounded in action fighting the Untermensch overseas, imagine what that money could do, yet it goes into caring for ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Here is the number of those who have swarmed into the country like bedbugs for just this year: 2,734,876.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the United States as we speak: 36,734,876- we believe the true numbers to be closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport every single one of the leeches back to where they originated.   (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).
  83. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Data in the U.S. shows that the country has wasted 15 million COVID-19 vaccine doses since March of this year.
  84. 2021 Wednesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.04 (2) AstraZeneca $58.72 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.74 (4) BioNTech $332.50 (5) Moderna $389.94.  Folks, do you think the feds give a damn about 15 million doses going bad of the vaccines?  No, of course not, the federal government will drop billions more dollars atop the vaccine manufacturers, and they will crank them out sucking in that free cash like an Amazonian anaconda consumes a whole, squealing, water hog to its doom.  This is why there is a BIG PUSH for everyone to get TWO initial jabs- even if the side effects can prove devastating to the recipient- and then a booster shot 2-4 times per year.  IF anyone can prove different, we invite you to submit your facts, we will publish them, and either answer them or admit we’re wrong.  Do your best.
  85. 2021 Wednesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.10 (2) General Dynamics: $199.79 (3) Boeing: $218.12 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.66 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $364.98.  Same as what we have said other days, the federal government could give a damn about all the weapons left behind in Afghanistan.  No, they will request more cash and more weapons will be made.  What a frigging scam, one the Deep State and lawmakers all profit from.  It simply is not right.
  86. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News I– Rasmussen reports that 52-percent of Americans (which actually means that around 79-89-percent of Americans) want Joe Biden to resign over the Afghan mess.  (Note- we suspect that ‘Taliban Joe’ has outlived his usefulness and that now something will happen to cause him to vacate the office- watch out for those COVID-19 ‘booster shots’ there, Joe).  Even worse for feeble-minded Joe, Rasmussen says that 62-percent of the American people want to see the fossil impeached and removed from office.  Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘Joe Biden’s victory lap on Afghanistan is repulsive.’
  87. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-GA 9th CD says that privately, Dems are telling him that Biden’s leadership team has to go.  We agree.  They are failures, especially U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and that ignorant POS Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley.  Fire them all and send them to prison.
  88. 2021 Wednesday M: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Liberal losers are shrieking at the top of their lungs down in Texas as the fetal heartbeat ban on abortions takes effect.  (Note- what the hell ever happened to personal responsibility and using birth control instead of fornicating like flipping dogs and then having the result murdered in the womb or worse on the birthing table?  WTF is wrong with these savages?)
  89. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3591 what with a $13 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 07, 10, 15, 43, 45, and Mega 07. Out of 104,304 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,403 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #879 with a jackpot of $345 million up for grabs: 10, 20, 29, 48, 51, and Power 17.  Out of 81,494 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $22,002 apiece.
  90. 2022 Thursday: Some of my GOP colleagues are upset with me over my brash defenses of the Democratic Party and of President Joseph R. Biden.  With respect to them, I call things the way I see them and to me- even though Donald Trump did some good things- he is a clear and present danger to our country.  Bill Maher’s correct when he says, ‘there’s nothing wrong with having a conspiracy to get rid of President Trump.’  The guy simply must go and if he did suddenly throw up his hands and say he was NOT going to run again and would stop endorsing MAGA Monsters, I am sure he would be left alone along with his family and could return to his private life.  Anyone else would have thrown in the towel by now.  Chef Itzi Nakamura.

[ii] We hope to present the music of Sly & the Family Stone within the next decade or so.  Please stay tuned for further information.

[iii] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was a mind-altering experience, one we wish we could relive.

[iv] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[v] We look forward to doing the music of Jerry Reed at some point in the future when we do the music of Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, the Outlaws, and other country rockers.

[vi] Today is Ted Wheeler’s birthday so the mobs showed him some disrespect calling for him to step down.

Author: Executive Chef Itzi Nakamura, ACF

I must say I am amazed that the AICP-END Blog would send up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, the amazing Simone to Maui to do some photographic portraits of me. We have moved in this direction since politics have turned millions of people against one another and it is important for us as employers and as private people with families to protect, that we begin covering our actual identities from those seeking to cause us problems. I must say, Simone has done a fine job and this is a caricature of me that meets with my approval. My husband and I live and own a restaurant in Kihei, Hawaii, and have also worked in institutional cooking at Maui’s premier hospital up in Wailuku. Chef Itzi Nakamura writes from Kihei, HI.
