  46. 2002 Friday: Two weeks after launching a political firestorm due to some insensitive remarks, Senate Republican Leader Trent Lott resigned his seat.  If Democrats say insensitive things, seldom does anyone require them to leave but Republicans always jump ship.  Meanwhile, the nation’s 10 biggest brokerage firms agreed to pay $1.44 billion and fundamentally to change the way they do business to settle allegations that they had mislead investors by hyping certain companies flawed stocks.  Elsewhere, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski enters the U.S. Senate on this date.
  47. 2004 Monday: In a sobering assessment of the Iraq War, President George W.

  50. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. House Intelligence Committee subpoenas the former head of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service Jose Rodriguez to bust his balls over the destruction of CIA interrogation tapes of jihadist thugs and murderers in CIA custody.  Ah, well, you can’t get everything you want.  Meanwhile, the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, strikes again as a suicide attack targeting a Pakistani government official kills at least 50 people and wounds loads of others.  Elsewhere, four Palestinians get themselves killed as they attempt to attack Israel along its border with the Gaza Strip.  
  51. 2008 Saturday: Reuters reports that three submarine cables mysteriously break that disrupt telephone and internet communications between the Middle East and Asia.

  53. 2010 Monday: The Obama administration seeks the ability to launch raids into Pakistan deeper than they have before.  We thought President Obama was opposed to widening wars or starting new ones.  My, my, my!  Meanwhile, there is a reason for this: a report says that over the course of 2010, 700 foreign troops have lost their lives in Afghanistan to foes who hide across the border in- you guessed it- Pakistan.
  54. 2011 Tuesday: In Egypt, thousands of women protest the Cairo police for having beaten numerous female protesters in Tahir Square in Cairo.  The top U.S. Army general in Iraq- Lloyd Austin- returns from the devastated country.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military rests its case in the courts martial of Private Bradley Manning, the young soldier who handed reams of classified intel over to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.
  55. 2012 Thursday: People across the United States are supposed to undergo a moment of silence in remembrance of the victims of the Sandy Hook Massacre.   Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden and members of the Cabinet and law enforcement officials from across the country met to discuss what could be done about the out-of-control gun violence across the country.  As it would turn out, NOTHING.
  56. 2013 Friday: For the first time since 1927, the Bakersfield High School Drillers football team won the state championship by beating Loomis-Del Oro Golden Eagles in the CIF Division I State Bowl Championship in Carson City, California.  The final score was 56-26.
  57. 2014 Saturday: Peshmerga forces in Iraq push ISIS forces off part of Sinjar Mountain, liberating 1,500 or so Yazidi families who had fled there after the terrorist army drove them from their villages in the valley below the mountain.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration sends four Afghan POWs back to their home country after having held them for more than a decade at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in the camp there.
  58. 2015 Sunday: At the recent Democratic Presidential Primary Debate, Senator Bernie Sanders and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton go to town on one another over the role of the U.S. military in the world.  Hillary a hawk and Bernie a Chi-Com-loving dove have different views.  Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley was there, too, but no one gave a s**t.
  59. 2016 Tuesday: Outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama bans oil drilling in both the Arctic and along the Eastern Seaboard.  Meanwhile, the World Meteorological Association says that 2016 is going to be the hottest year on record driving young climate change activists to run amok in the streets, believing the planet is going to die.  Four years later, it’s still here and doing better, no thanks to the Chi-Com Bat Flu of 2020.   Elsewhere, the Trump transition team continues requesting information from the U.S. State Department regarding its donations to environmental groups.
  60. 2017 Wednesday: Democracy Now (and other liberal groups) are wailing that the Republican-controlled Congress passes a massive tax overhaul group that is going to benefit the nation’s richest Americans and corporations.  Again, the ‘richest Americans and corporations’ provide the most jobs.  Meanwhile, as rent-a-mobs protest in the streets, the very same congress passes a budget bill that won’t provide additional aid to DREAMERS.  Oh, boohoo.   
  61. 2018 Thursday: After ‘disagreements’ with President Donald J. Trump on military strategy- namely, keeping troops in West Africa, East Africa, Afghanistan, and Syria- U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis announces his resignation effective at the end of the year.  The president would send him packing sooner…
  62. 2019 Friday: Awaiting the House Democrats to walk the impeachment papers over to the U.S. Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his fellow GOP senators plot the upcoming impeachment strategy.  Unable to really generate honest articles of impeachment against President Trump, the Democrats have cobbled together two laughable articles of impeachment which over the course of time would become known to everyone.  The Democrats in the Senate would DEMAND WITNESSES.  Folks, the Senate hears from NO witnesses as the Senate members are the jury and the party doing the impeachment presents its case, win, or lose.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump establishes the U.S. Space Force on this date to counter Chi-Com, Russian, and Iranian threats in the war domain of outer space.  
  63. 2020 Sunday: Here are today’s NFL matchups: (4) Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31 (9-5) @ Atlanta Falcons, 27 (4-10) Sunday 10:00 A.M.  (5)  San Francisco 49ers, 33 (5-9) @ Dallas Cowboys, 41 (5-9) 10:00 A.M.  (6) Detroit Lions, 25 (5-9) @ Tennessee Titans, 46 (10-4) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Houston Texans, 20 (4-10) @ Indianapolis Colts, 27 (10-4) 10:00 A.M.  (8) New England Patriots, 12 (6-8) @ Miami Dolphins, 22 (9-5) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Chicago Bears, 33 (7-7) @ Minnesota Vikings, 27 (6-8) 10:00 A.M.

  64. 2020 Sunday A: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,760,893 confirmed cases, +634,728, 1,692,151, confirmed deaths, +8,617, and 43,244,094 confirmed recoveries, +280,463 (last week, the number was much higher so some funny business is going on here, folks).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,975,428 confirmed cases, up 346,135 from yesterday’s reporting, 320,595 confirmed deaths, UP 3,061, and 7,925,626 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,965.
  65. 2020 Sunday B: 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: 1,869,125 confirmed cases, 22,653 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 226,551 confirmed cases, 3,169 confirmed deaths (down from a week ago), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Georgia- currently, they have 562,479 confirmed cases, 10,383 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,106 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu received his Bat Flu vaccine today on live TV.  Elsewhere, although the world is contending with the Wuhan bat flu, economist Stephen Moore says ‘2021 should be very bright thanks to the Chi-Vi vaccine.’ Meanwhile, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams says the country ‘should be normal by later spring or early summer.’  Finally, the Moderna vaccine is out on the road in the U.S. and people could be receiving their vaccinations tomorrow.  
  66. 2020 Sunday C:  President Donald J. Trump refutes Fake News claims that he is going to seize government and declare martial law.  We know this cannot happen because the military already said, ‘they aren’t going to get involved in the election.’   Meanwhile, the president continues trying to push a stimulus bill for the American people as lawmakers continue haggling with one another over a COVID-19, aka Kung Flu, relief bill that neither Democrats nor Republicans seemingly can pass.  We begin voting them out in 2022, 2024, 2026 and on and on and on.  Meanwhile, outgoing Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard- a leader of the people- is pushing for COVID-19 relief for small businesses.  Will anyone listen?
  67. 2020 Sunday D: The Save America Bus Tour with Senator Ted Cruz at the helm pulls into Cumming, Georgia, today.  Yesterday, it was in Savannah, as the battle to keep the U.S. Senate from the communist Democrats continues.  Meanwhile, as we continue learning more dirt on that scumbag, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell and his ties to the Chi-Coms via to sleeping with an MSS agent for several years, information is beginning to come to light on another Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff.  A driving force in the fake impeachment of President Trump and his phone call with Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine’s president, we now learn that Schiff has deep ties to Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas company.  Boris Pasternak of Burisma held fundraisers for Congressman Schiff as well as funneled money from George Soros’ left-wing ‘think tanks,’ Atlantic Council being one.  He also received cash from Blackrock and Franklin-Templeton Investments.  What a scumbag.
  68. 2020 Sunday E: The ‘religion of peace’ strikes again in Kabul, Afghanistan, as two car bombings kill nine people and wound another 20 citizens.  One must love Islam.  Meanwhile, U.S. troops are leaving Somalia for neighboring countries.  Elsewhere, the U.S. emplaces sanctions on Chi-Com companies involved in the phony elections in Venezuela.  Finally, in Great Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is using the communist Chinese virus to cancel Christmas and more or less declares a severe lockdown of the British people all in the name of protecting people from the Wuhan Bat Flu.  Boris has gone crazy. 
  69. 2020 Sunday F: “Tiger King” Joe Exotic is seeking a pardon from President Trump.  Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, R, is urging a pardon for Julian Assange as are many for Edward Snowden.  Meanwhile, President Trump tweets that ‘John Bolton is the stupidest man alive.’  Many of us used to believe Mr. Bolton was a good man; we now know he is little more than a worthless POS who embodies the Military-Industrial Complex and endless, endless war…
  70. 2020 Sunday G: Even though it’s Sunday, the Chi-Coms and their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party here in the U.S. are up to no good.  Stick around to discover exactly what they are doing…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The J. Geils Band would deliver its finest album on October 26, 1981, “Freeze-Frame.”  Folks, in the era of MTV, this album and the band was made for Music TV.  This would be the last album to feature the original lineup- John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones)- because their success was so great, it would cause Peter Wolf to become full of himself and depart.  Ah, well, it was a heartbreaker at the time but NO reason not to look for this album as it contains the amazing title track, “Centerfold,” “Angel in Blue,” and “Flamethrower,” all of which kept this album Number One for at least a month and those songs on the radio for decades to come.  We hope everyone will seek this album out and add it to your collection- you will be so glad you did- of that, we guarantee!

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY DECEMBER 20, 2020

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We hope to advertise this book for historical purposes on this date. 

[ii] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs. 

[iii] We look forward to sharing the music of KISS sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will still be with us when we do because YOU won’t want to miss them. 

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

[vi] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[vii] This is typical of liberal leftwing judges as communists do not believe in God and always go after any mention of God or His ‘intelligent design,’ because communists do not want humankind to believe in anything greater than human beings.  We say, “BULLSHIT” to this, shame on the judge.  If leftists did not fear God as much as they do, they would remain silent.  You never see leftist judges go after Muslims.

[viii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

The Xi Jinping Bat Flu isn’t killing the American people, it’s the excessive rules and regulations imposed upon us by Democratic and RINO governors and mayors

I agree with Stinkbug who said last week, EVERY BUSINESS OWNER MUST AGREE- FROM ONE END OF THE COUNTRY TO THE OTHER- TO REOPEN AT THE SAME TIME ON THE SAME DAY. They cannot strip all of us of our business licenses, our liquor licenses, close us down for ‘health violations,’ or send all of us to jail on trumped-up charges, especially if we come to one another’s aid.

FALL SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,703 AT THE AICP-END

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS FORTY-SEVEN

Restaurateurs are at the end of their rope (as are many other businesses in America)…

Century City, CA 90067, 12-20-2020 Sunday: I’m an old man, I’ve run my race, had one of the most successful Greek restaurants in Los Angeles, California.  We’ve made loads of money and we’ve lost loads of money.  I can retire at any time but my kids and their families had plans to continue the business for as long as they can.  People love Greek food, especially once they come to know and enjoy its ageless majesty, they come to love the piquant flavors of lemon, tarragon, capers, marjoram and pine nuts, chicken, lamb, feta cheese, and Greek ‘tamales’ (only ours come wrapped in grape leaves and not corn husks, we buy from the wine country of Northern California), people love it once they come to know it.     

The Beijing Bat Flu combined with City Hall daily mandates are killing our restaurant.  It’s killing every other restaurant in the Greater Los Angeles area, one that stretches from the beautiful California coastline east to the scorched deserts, north to the Grapevine and its mountains and south to outlying communities and the long drive to San Diego.  While some places are able to be open, most are not, and without aid from Washington, D.C., what we are going to end up with is a vast wasteland as depicted by various sci-fi movies of the late 1960s and early 1970s. 

None of this had to be.  None of this had to happen.  People can live their lives while at the same time being responsible as NO one wants to become ill, NO one wants to transmit the disease home to a loved one, and NO one wants to become a COVID-19 ‘Cory or Mary,’ a super-spreader of a foreign virus. 

Yet, we also do not want to see our life’s work destroyed and our communities devastated.  Paying rents is becoming impossible.  Making mortgage and automobile payments is becoming problematic.  Maintaining our long-term and even our newer employees above a bare subsistence level is at a crisis point because we consider these people to be members of our extended families and do everything we can possibly can to aid them. 

Their pain is our pain and there are days when I wake up and think, “Maybe if I stumble off a curb and into the street in front of a passing semi-truck, maybe it will appear to be an accident and my family can get my life insurance?”  Morbid, I know, but I am not the only person thinking once-horrible thoughts such as these, not because I wish to but because local and statewide politicians are forcing it upon me just as they are millions of my fellow citizens.

Then, I think no, there is no way I can do that because I don’t want to leave my wife alone.  She and I have had a long relationship and I love her more than life itself.  However, it’s difficult to see her pain, her depression, over losing the business we love so much, seeing the worry and concern on the faces of our kids and grandkids, on those of our employees.  Everyone walks around like a zombie, everyone thinks that this nightmare must end as if it continues another month, maybe two, or even three, the economic devastation is going to be impossible to repair. 

Likewise, the declining mental and emotional stability so many Americans are feeling, suffering is difficult to repair if it goes beyond a certain point.  It is akin to being a civilian living in a warzone under the control of an occupying power.

Los Angeles has slammed the door shut on ALL dining, both within AND without in specially constructed tents upon which, we restaurateurs have spent sums of money we don’t have to construct.  Unless one is a caterer to a television or movie crew, we can no longer open in the middle of the street. 

Our counterparts in New York City have had to empty similar amounts of vanishing cash reservoirs and yet, their mayor, Bill Di Blasio, like our mayor, the bum Eric Garcetti, won’t let most of us reopen, even for takeout.[i]  What are we to do?

I will tell you this, something I saw on Newsmax this past Wednesday: ONLY 1.4-percent of the Wuhan Flu cases in the Big Apple can be traced back to outdoor dining, 1.4-percent.  Why then are politicians who behave like thugs, dictators, potentates, satraps, and want-to-be kings shuttering restaurants who have bent over backwards to follow their ever-changing, oftentimes incoherent rules, edicts, regulations, and dictates issued to them.  Why?

I agree with Stinkbug who said last week, EVERY BUSINESS OWNER MUST AGREE- FROM ONE END OF THE COUNTRY TO THE OTHER- TO REOPEN AT THE SAME TIME ON THE SAME DAY.  They cannot strip all of us of our business licenses, our liquor licenses, close us down for ‘health violations,’ or send all of us to jail on trumped-up charges, especially if we come to one another’s aid. 

It is the ONLY way in which, American business owners can save their businesses and the lives of everyone involved by standing up and making a show of unified force.  The only way.   Otherwise, I fear that when government minions show up and ask us WTF we are doing being open, people are going to begin being shot, beaten, tarred-and-feathered, or killed on the spot.  It is the only way.

Stinkbug said it best: we can all hang together or we can all hang separately.[ii]  There is power in numbers, in unification, in putting our lives and resources and honor on the line together.  It’s either that or we allow the Chi-Coms via their Democratic Party and RINO agents to buy up distressed properties, one after the other, and become our de facto landlords.  How flipping diabolical would that be?  

Hopefully, I will see you in six months; but one never knows.  I could be in jail or I could be dead.  I am tired of the bulls**t and at my age, I don’t care if I shoot some son-of-a-bitch local government lackey telling me I cannot run my business.  I believe people are going to begin getting shot, it’s inevitable, especially seeing as how we are a FREE people unused to tyranny of any kind but especially from our own leaders.   

What’s more, remember this: in New York City, 21,000 cases of the Chi-Vi are traceable back to private homes while ONLY- I repeat ONLY- 156 cases are traceable to professional foodservice establishments so why then are New Yorkers and we closed as though we are germ factories?  Let that one sink in for a while… 

Please, let me know what YOU think.  God bless, have a wonderful Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Day and Kwanzaa…I hope to see you in six months but then, one never knows.  I could stumble in front of a metro bus, I could become the victim of a random crime (with the Chi-Coms being behind it), or I could be disappeared.  You just don’t know.

Merry Christmas!  Glorious Kwanzaa!  Happy New Year!  God bless America and the Devil take communist China.  Remember- support your local restaurants.  If they go under, so do all the businesses that service THEM.[iii]

This is me as a young chef at an awards dinner at the Bon Adventure Hotel in the 1980’s when I was working there as the Night Sous Chef’s Assistant. I began cooking in the 1960’s in my native Greece before moving to Los Angeles, California, in the early 1970’s. I apprenticed under an ACF Master Chef shortly thereafter and now here I am. I still am involved in professional foodservice as an instructor.

Our Ten Years After album for today is their eighth album, “A Space in Time,” which came out on August 16, 1971 and which marked a transition to a more commercial sound and yet, it is their best-selling album. The hit, “I’d love to change the world (but don’t know how)” is one of the greatest rock anthems ever recorded and one still heard on FM radio to this day. Once again, we have the same quartet of hard-rocking Birmingham, England, rock-and-rollers: guitar phenomena and vocalist Alvin Lee, fiery bassist Leo Lyons, powerhouse drummer Ric Lee, and stellar keyboardist Chick Churchill.  Every fan of rock music of this era needs to buy it so please, go to Amazon.com by using the link posted above and BUY IT.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Mayor Garcetti has dined at our restaurant on more than one occasion.  What I can say to this POS is that IF he ever returns, he and his family might find themselves with a major case of salmonella food poisoning.  Just saying, folks.

[ii] Echoing the bold words of our Founding Fathers.

[iii] It is not just restaurants and their employees who are suffering but companies with whom we do business like foodservice and liquor and beverage vendors as well as pest control services, laundry services, florists, plumbers, electricians, gardeners, fire suppression businesses, independent delivery drivers, bakers, and loads of other people.  They, too, stop doing business and businesses who supply them find themselves struggling, it’s like throwing a stone into a quiet pool and watching the successive ripples radiating outward over and over and over.  No, we are on the precipice of disaster, taxes are going unpaid, and look out for Social Security and Medicare going under sooner than later.  No, this is an absolute disaster, one I contend the Democrats and the Chi-Coms are orchestrating so they can come in and rescue the country.  Thank God we have our guns.

354. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2020

X. 1942 Saturday: As the fight to relieve Stalingrad continues, the 6th Panzer Division at the forefront of the push to reach the city of Mishkova arrives after heavy fighting with Soviet infantry and armored forces. Colonel General Hermann “Papa” Hoth informs Field Marshal Erich von Manstein that he will begin the final push the following day to reach the city and begin breaking the Sixth Army out of its encirclement. Unfortunately, General Paulus’ troops were engaged in heavy defensive fighting in the area where their part of the fight was to commence the breakout. He was unclear as what to do.

  60. 2020 Saturday: We have two NFL games this Saturday afternoon but first, a recap on Thursday Night Football’s matchup: (1) Los Angeles Chargers, 30 (5-9) @ Las Vegas Raiders, 27 (8-6) Thursday Night 5:30 P.M. Here are today’s matchups: (2) Buffalo Bills, 48 (11-3) @ Denver Broncos, 19 (5-9) Saturday 1:30 P.M.  Next: (3) Carolina Panthers, 16 (4-10) @ Green Bay Packers, 24 (11-3) Saturday 5:15 P.M.
  61. 2020 Saturday A: The Michigan House of Representatives votes to repeal the Emergency Powers Act they mistakenly bestowed on fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat, an act she used to punish individuals and businesses across the state.  Recall this horrible woman.  Meanwhile, Minnesota prepares to call out the National Guard when the trial of the four police officers charged with the death of George Floyd begins. 
  62. 2020 Saturday B: We now learn that the suspected Russian hack of the U.S. began as far back as March before anyone noticed anything or reported it.  Here are the government departments or entities affected by the Russian FSB thugs: (1) U.S. Treasury Dept. (2) U.S. Commerce Dept. (3) National Institute of Health (4) CISA (5) Dept. of Homeland Security (6) U.S. State Dept. (7) Pentagon- the (8) Office of POTUS (9) NASA (10) Natl. Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’
  63. 2020 Saturday C: The U.S. Congress is holding a Saturday session on government funding. President Donald J. Trump signs a stopgap spending bill to keep government up and running.  Next, the U.S. Army rejects former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Retired call for martial law to figure out what the hell happened in the presidential election.   Regarding the election, Franklin Graham says, ‘I tend to believe the election was rigged or stolen.’  Elsewhere, apelike thug and former director of the CIA (and former communist) John Brennan says the Durham report is ‘trolling’ and mocks outgoing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr.  Have YOU looked in the mirror lately, Mr. Brennan?  You are a thug.   Speaking of Mr. Barr, he says ‘there was NO CIA misconduct in the Trump-Russian collusion probe.’
  64. 2020 Saturday D: In a humorous note, the Fake News Media is blubbering tears, criticizing the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-Chi-Com China Joe” Biden for closing access to them.  What the hell did you think you dumbasses?   Elsewhere, housing ‘experts’ want the eviction ban extended.  Good for them.  Regarding Chinese Virus-related problems, the GOP wants to bind Chi-Vi aid to limits on federal spending (there’s no money) which throws the outcome of the COVID-19 relief bill into doubt.  Allies of Chi-Com Joe Biden cry, “Foul!”  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the good old ‘Kung Flu,’ the Moderna vaccine has been cleared for emergency use in the United States which will spread the vaccine to greater numbers of people.   
  65. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him having a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot continues coming to light.  He must go.  NOW!  We also learn the Chi-Com ‘100-Year Plan’ is for them to bribe, buy, or blackmail everyone around the world who is in their way.  Time to start dropping some nukes, people!   U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says, “The Democrats are too cozy with the Chi-Coms.”  She’s right.
  66. 2020 Saturday F: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw and the Powerball drawings. First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3518 with a jackpot of $16 million at stake- 10, 15, 25, 31, 33, and Mega 21.  Out of 92.010 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,020 apiece.  One of the two winning tickets was sold at an ARCO AM/PM station in Newbury Park, CA, 91320 while the other was sold at a Mega Liquor in San Gabriel, CA, 91776.   Next, here are the numbers for tonight’s Powerball Draw #804 with a jackpot of $377 million at stake: 27, 32, 34, 43, 52, and Powerball 13.  Out of 101,071 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,972.
  67. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,126,125 confirmed cases, +1,617,691, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +11,762, and 42,963,631 confirmed recoveries (again, this number is less than reported a week ago), +361,393.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,629,293 confirmed cases, UP 177,126 from yesterday’s reporting, 317,534 confirmed deaths, UP 1,765, and 7,857,661 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,121.
  68. 2020 Saturday H: 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: 1,827,535 confirmed cases, 22,509 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 281 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 224,594 confirmed cases, 3,168 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state- Ohio. Currently, they have 614,429 confirmed cases, 8,031 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor DeWine.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 372,886 confirmed cases, 3,074 confirmed deaths, and 345,589 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Mao Zedong fever, Maryland and Virginia donate doses of the vaccine to Washington, D.C.
  69. 2020 Saturday I: Folks, even though it’s Saturday, everyone knows EVIL never sleeps so stay tuned for whatever shenanigans the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party in the U.S. are up to today.  Everyone knows whatever it is, it’s going be GOOD!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Now that the J. Geils Band was on an upward trajectory, the band’s old record company, Atlantic Records decided what the heck, we are going to release another best of album, “Best of the J. Geils Band Two” on October 28, 1980.  Once again there were another nine tunes culled from throughout the group’s discography with the label and folks, these are great tunes.  If you have failed to get in on the ground floor with the group’s work, well, this is a superb way in which, you can do it which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and add it to your growing record collection.  Remember- wax is best and old “Pro-China Joe” Biden said in a primary debate that everyone should leave the record player on at night for their young kids and this is one of the albums you would have playing as the little tikes are trying to sleep.  This music is far better than say the music of Maroon Five or any of the modern-day crap you hear on WOKE radio stations.

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Saturday, December 19, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.

[ii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor. 

[vii] See previous footnote.  

[viii] In 2019, enfeebled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues misleading the public that what President Bill Clinton was in trouble for was his ‘affair’ with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  Although that was questionable, he was in trouble for lying in the Paula Jones case as well as for suborning perjury in same which inevitable cost him big bucks as well as the right to practice law in his home state of Arkansas for a year.  Speaker Pelosi, STOP LYING to the American people, tell the truth or step down from office and go back home to crime-ridden San Francisco.

[ix] This guy is more of a murderous thug than even his father was.  Still President Donald J. Trump has attempted to bring him and his rat-shit country into modern times.  We shall see.

[x] In 2019 at this point, we are not sure as to whether she will give it yet another go or will remain along the sidelines talking shit.

EVERYONE of sound mind and body understands that Donald J. Trump won an incredible electoral landslide victory on Nov. 3, but thanks to Chi-Com cash and crooked politicians, he may not

The question is, where were state GOP officials, why weren’t they fighting back the moment the Democrat governors began making these illegal changes to their voting laws? We could have nipped this crap in the bud, we could have strangled this demonic baby in its crib, so where the hell were they? Unless, like Brian Kemp, a man whom we believe receives lots of Chi-Com cash, sided with Democrats and not with HIS party.

FALL SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,702 AT THE AICP-END

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS FORTY-SIX

What?  NO Chi-Com cash in the PO Box to buy our silence?  (Just kidding)

Century City, CA 90067, 12-19-2020 Saturday: Chef Craig reported to me last night that once again, he stood up on his tiptoes to peer into our PO Box in Bakersfield to see if the Chi-Com check buying our ‘services’ had arrived yet.  He reported, ‘Nope, no such luck, I guess even though we get loads of views from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and from Mainland China, we don’t rate being bought off as though we were an elected Democrat or RINO Republican.’  What a shame.  Still, we are hopeful that big $2 million check made out to the AICPENDBLOG.COM will somehow show up to cause us to zip our lips when it comes to bashing the Chin.  Just kidding of course.[i]    

Yesterday, we were discussing how the Chi-Coms and the Democrats utilize social media along with their Fake News Media sycophants to spread disinformation and lies, much like how the Nazis blamed the Jews (and other despised minorities) for the ills of their nation, all so they could achieve total power

Kind of interesting HOW many Democrats are also raging anti-Semites (like the Chin despise the Uighurs).  Do I need to name names?  Nope, I think everyone knows WHO among the LEFT hates the Jews.[ii]  Like the ‘Reverend’ Louis Farrakhan, they make little to no effort to disguise it no more than that left-wing, pro-Nation of Islam thug in Georgia, Raphael Warnock, does.  He hates them Jews…

Since 2000, the Democrats rely on personal defamation and vilification of their enemies, much like what that left-wing POS Saul Alinsky instructed his low IQ minions in his boring book, “Rules for Radicals.” 

It’s all about isolating the target, going after him or her day after day and night after night.  You never give them a moment’s rest; you never give them a moment’s peace.  Look at what they did to President George W. Bush.  Look at what they’re doing to Donald J. Trump.  A lesser man than Trump would have imploded by now and would have been carted off to the funny farm, you know, to the loony bin by the men in white. 

What the Democrats- and their masters in Beijing NEVER anticipated- is that the American people would overlook the cacophony of fake information and would cleave tighter than ever to President Donald J. Trump.  No matter what Democrats said, implied, inferred, or vomited, more Americans than ever knew what was at stake in the 2020 Elections, what the president was fighting against, and that he was practically alone in fighting on OUR behalf. 

The evidence suggests that Donald Trump won a massive electoral landslide, both with the popular vote and in the Electoral College.  Yet, the Democrats began interfering in various states’ election laws via executive orders and the like prior to the elections and not doing it via the way dictated in the Constitution- via state legislatures. 

Now, I will say this: where were the GOP observers in the states where Democrat governors and county officials were monkeying around with election laws?  Why were they not immediately going to war with the Democrats enacting illegal changes to their election laws? 

Had they gone to war then in the courts, they could have prevented much of the Democratic Party’s- and Beijing’s- 2020 strategy which would have nullified changes to signature verification and other necessary laws preventing voter fraud.  Where were they?  Who said it was ‘okay’ to use Dominion Voting Systems and Venezuelan software?

We cannot blame the Trump administration for this shocking oversight because they have loads on their plate already seeing as how they are fighting the Chi-Com Virus and other pressing issues. 

The question is, where were state GOP officials, why weren’t they fighting back the moment the Democrat governors began making these illegal changes to their voting laws?  We could have nipped this crap in the bud, we could have strangled this demonic baby in its crib, so where the hell were they?  Unless, like Brian Kemp, a man whom we believe receives lots of Chi-Com cash, sided with Democrats and not with HIS party.

No one knows if we are going to be able to push back against these outrages but Rush Limbaugh and others left us with some hope this past Wednesday when he brought up the Electoral Count Act- the ECA- that allows House members in conjunction with Senate members to challenge the final Electoral College count in early January.  Mr. Limbaugh went through how it works but it’s too much for me to go into here but the important thing to note is that it has been used before although ineffectively. 

Democrat House members tried to stop the Electoral College going to Trump and redirect it to Hillary in 2016 but NO sitting Senate member would join with them which would trigger the next portion of the law, debate between members of the Senate leading to a final vote in the House by state delegations and not by members.

If some brave Senate GOP members buck Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel (as they should) and side with Republican House members to trigger the act, it would be a remarkable, patriotic thing.  We must question WHY Leader McConnell does not want them to do it?  Could it be because- as we reported Tuesday in Today in History- that McConnell received BIG DONATIONS from Dominion Voting Systems and from other vendors of election equipment?[iii]

Let us hope that that’s not the case.  See you tomorrow.

Our Ten Years After album for today is their seventh album, “Watt,” which came out in December 19, 1970.  This is another great album though not quite as great as yesterday’s “Cricklewood Green,” but still great, nonetheless. Once again, we have the same quartet of hard-rocking Birmingham, England, rock-and-rollers: guitar phenomena and vocalist Alvin Lee, fiery bassist Leo Lyons, powerhouse drummer Ric Lee, and stellar keyboardist Chick Churchill.   It put the fans on the doorstep for tomorrow’s offering, perhaps their best all-time album ever, “A Space in Time.”  Serious fans, you still need to buy this one so please, visit your favorite source for classic rock music and BUY IT.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We would alert the FBI to something such as this.  Then again, the modern-day FBI?  One doesn’t know what the heck they might do anymore.  They sure as heck aren’t pro-American anymore and highly untrustworthy.  Just ask Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret.

[ii] I will anyway: AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Baldy, Raphael Warnock, Bernie Sanders (and he’s a Jew!), and far too many other Democrats.  It will be interesting to see if “Pro-China Joe” Biden becomes president if he moves the U.S. Embassy out of Jerusalem and back to Tel Aviv?  How flipping horrible would something like that be?  Biden could also pull recognition away from the Golan Heights being part of Israel and demanding they return it to the Syrians.  Let us pray none of this happens.

[iii] IF this truly is the case and not just rumor or hearsay, Senator McConnell should immediately send that money back to Dominion and the other election systems vendors and demand they do the right thing, come forward, and denounce what the hell they’ve done.  Regarding Dominion, some of my colleagues say ‘it’s as if Canada declared war on us which requires an overwhelming response.’  My family and I will never vacation there again.  Goodbye Vancouver Island.

353. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2020

Z. 1942 Friday: German Field Marshal Erich von Manstein’s intelligence officer meets with Sixth Army commander General Friedrich Paulus and his subordinate officers to gauge as to whether the trapped army will attempt the breakout when Hoth’s panzers arrive nearby. Adolf Hitler has NOT given his permission to Operation Thunderclap- the breakout from Stalingrad- yet so Paulus vacillates…

  60. 2016 Sunday: The Electoral College is meeting today to select the next U.S. president following last month’s presidential election.  This year, however, outraged Americans everywhere are demanding the 538 electors NOT to vote for President-elect Donald J. Trump but to vote instead for defeated candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton.   President Barack Hussein Obama blasts Vladimir Putin for ‘having meddled in the U.S. Election’ when earlier in the year he had said, ‘there’s no way a foreign power can interfere in America’s elections.’
  61. 2017 Monday: President Donald J.

  64. 2020 Friday:  U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross confirms that mega-Chi-Com chipmaker SMIC along with other communist Chinese companies are on the blacklist due to them being part of the communist hierarchy and for using their products to spy on their customers.   Next, the Pentagon halts defense briefings for the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his consort Senator Kamala Harris, D-CA, because they’re big proponents of the Chi-Coms and because son, Hunter Biden, is in deep with Beijing.   Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence celebrates the first anniversary of the U.S. Space Force and says that ‘from now on, members of the U.S. Space Force will be referred to as ‘Guardians’ and will join the ranks of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines.  Congratulations!
  65. 2020 Friday A: After we learn that Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did NOT take the multi-state lawsuit headed by Texas regarding election fraud and corruption because he was AFRAID of mob violence if he did, he throws President Trump a bone by upholding the administration’s edict NOT to include illegal aliens in the 2020 Census as we shouldn’t.  Illegals are NOT American citizens and have no right to anything in this country other than a quick deportation.
  66. 2020 Friday B: In Seattle, barricades are erected around the so-called ‘protest zone.’  Go in there and clean these maggots out.  Next, Senator Rand Paul urges President Donald J. Trump to pardon both Edward Snowden and Julian Assange as he should.  They are patriots, not traitors.  Elsewhere, the New York Times retracts the ‘hit broadcast’ by the so-called ISIS executioner when they learn he’s a phony and a bum.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, disgruntled loser Stacey Abrams of Georgia says she has 76 thousand new voters to vote in the January U.S. Senate run-off races.  We hear the GOP has 80,000.  Beat both Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.
  67. 2020 Friday C: New text messages coming to light reveal that James Comey- fired FBI director- and his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama’s spying on Donald Trump started far earlier than previously reported, going back to 2015.  Meanwhile, former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., says that ‘President Trump has options to secure the 2020 Presidential Election.’  He should use those options NOW.  Elsewhere, outrage continues growing over WHY California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, Democrat, has not been driven from office seeing as how he was banging a Chi-Com sugar pie named Fang-Fang, aka Christine Fang, most likely passing sensitive information onto his handlers in Beijing.  Swalwell should be in the same prison as Richard Hanssen condemned to life in prison for being an agent of a foreign, hostile power.
  68. 2020 Friday D: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 75,179,482 confirmed cases, +654,493, 1,667,124, confirmed deaths, +9,418, and 42,512,618 confirmed recoveries (interestingly down from a week ago), +318,734.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,401,776 confirmed cases, up 255,944 from yesterday’s reporting, 313,797 confirmed deaths, UP 1,711, and 7,777,776 confirmed recoveries, UP 12,256.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Chi-Com flu, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence received vaccinations for the Yellow Fever 2020 today.  Former Beatle Paul McCartney says he will get vaccinated.  Meanwhile, the FDA is working to get the Moderna vaccine into use while a poll reports that 71-percent of Democrats and 41-percent of Republicans must get the Wuhan Virus vaccine if one wants to return to work.
  69. 2020 Friday E: 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: 1,783,360 confirmed cases, 22,221 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,954 confirmed cases, 280 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 220,816 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New York where they have a moron for a governor: currently, they have 828,166 confirmed cases, 35,647 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 367,975 confirmed cases, 3,050 confirmed deaths, and 342,985 confirmed recoveries.

  71. 2020 Friday G: We learn that the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is trying to emplace new rules on AR-15 pistols, firearms that come with braces that strap to the shooter’s forearms, could soon have requirements demanding they be registered, dismantled, turned in to the government, or destroyed.  It’s like we always say: GO BUY YOUR GUNS NOW.  Then, find secure holding places for them because when government comes a-knocking on one’s door demanding your guns, ‘oh, gee, some illegal alien stole them yesterday and I was just about to report them.’  F**k the government if “Pro-China Joe” Biden begins running it and that moron of morons, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke comes looking for them.  We are telling you; people are going to get themselves shot.
  72. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1617 with a jackpot of $330,000,000 up for grabs: 07, 15, 25, 51, 60, and Mega 05.  Out of 110,011 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,064 apiece.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY DECEMBER 18, 2020

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Friday, December 18, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of the Classical composers as without them, we would live in a barbarous world where Islamist scum murder innocent people at will.  Music is what sets civilized people apart from the savages.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[iv] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[v] One of the greatest saxophonists of his time, he performed with numerous bands but primarily the Rolling Stones.

[vi] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

[viii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[ix] We are surprised that no one ever assassinated this worthless POS.  However, he died of gut cancer because instead of coming to the United States or Spain for treatment, he went to Cuba, a place Democrats say has ‘the best health care system in the world’ and which they want to replicate here in the United States with “Medicare for All,” which means “NOT Medicare at All” but a crap system.

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS FORTY-FIVE

The communist Chinese deserve every blow we land on their smug faces…

Century City, CA 90067, 12-18-2020 Friday:  Well, my colleagues in Bakersfield peered into our PO Box to see if we had received a check for $2 million from the Chi-Coms but sadly, there was nothing.  Ah, well, that means we will continue pummeling the communist Chin as we go because folks, they deserve every blow we land on their smug, Mandarin faces.  Between them and the Democrats, they have sown so much dissension across the United States through propagandizing the vulnerable into believing RED DRAGON GOOD, STARS AND STRIPES BAD, and also through their dissemination of their Bat Virus around the world that it would be great if we nuked the living crap out of them, something Harry S. Truman should have done in 1950-51.[i]  They are playing for keeps while most everyone else is playing Chinese checkers and for no monetary remuneration.  The only person opposing them- President Donald J. Trump- battles on almost alone.   

Let us recap the strategy the Democrats and their masters in Beijing have been employing against Republican presidents and politicians since the beginning of the century.  Up until the Chi-Coms committed the most-asinine error ever- releasing the Chinese Virus around the world in the misguided hope it would take out Trump- they were cruising behind the drapes, not in front of them.  Like Oz the Great and Powerful, the Chi-Coms were playing a winning hand until they overplayed it and showed their dreadfully malevolent, pockmarked faces peering out from behind the window coverings. 

The strategy employed by Beijing and their flying monkeys here in the U.S. is disinformation across the board.  At first Beijing despised social media but once they realized the heads of Twitter, Facebook, and Google could be bought for copious amounts of cash, they embraced social media like a funny uncle embraces a five-year-old niece or nephew.  In their country, everyone has a social media score, one that determines what type of job he, she, or it might get- if any- as well as what kind of benefits they might also receive.    

Play the game by the rules, and one can easily climb the ladder and achieve success much like the Nazis rewarded loyal minions willing to do their bidding and for the rest, labor camps, concentration camps, and death camps where they could get their heads right while making iPhones, NBA gear, Coca-Cola®, and Nike sneakers. 

Unlike the Soviets whose socialism was based on class, Nazism was based on race and ethnicity, much like what the Chi-Coms do.  Pure-blooded Chinese, you are okay, an ethnic minority or a Tibetan, you have a problem much like Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, and others did in Nazi Germany.   

Disinformation is also extremely important.  Blame the junior partner in the Chi-Com sphere- Russia- for aiding Republicans in general and President Donald J. Trump in particular-r and you can sow much anxiety, insecurity, and fear among the gullible, the inattentive, and the young and dumb. 

Likewise, if one is tremendously successful in these evil endeavors, perhaps one of the nitwits you have programmed will do something dreadful, you know, pull a John Wilkes Booth.  Then you can blame the ‘victim’ for what befell him because of ‘his words, mannerisms, or actions.’  Thank God it has not yet happened.

The Russians could care little to nothing that anyone blames them for anything because- if you want to know the truth- the Russians are glad they are at the center of attention because they don’t rate it based on their projected power or strength. 

Moreover, they are now a third-rate power.  That’s not to say they aren’t dangerous but unlike the Chi-Coms, they do not carry the same weight they once did as the USSR.  Besides, the Democrats truly admire Vladimir Putin’s power (in secret, of course) and have always worked to support Russia from behind the scenes.  Criticism of Russia is just for show.

Accusing President Trump and Republicans of being Russian stooges takes the spotlight off the Democrats being the true puppets of the Chi-Coms.  Thank God on Wednesday, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, called out the ranking member of the Senate Homeland Security Committee- Senator Gary Peters, D-MI, of being both a liar and a shill for the Russians.  Someone has to do it and Senator Johnson has the balls with which to do it.[ii]  God bless you.

Friends, we will pick back up tomorrow and continue with more of our findings on this matter.  I will see you then.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Five-star General Douglas MacArthur, commander of all U.N. forces in the early parts of the Korean War advocated for nuking the Chi-Coms and the bridges across the Yalu River from the PRC into North Korea.  Had President Harry S. Truman heeded that advice, the Chi-Coms might have been a bit more docile nowadays.  Why have power if one is afraid of using it?

[ii] Speaking of Senator Peters, most of us believe that his challenger, John James, beat the living daylights out of him.  Only Michigan and its crooked Governor Gretchen Whitmer robbed James of the victory and Trump the state.  I hope come January 6, we show the Democrats what we are made of- a big can of whoop-ass.

  62. 2018 Monday: A new report arises noting the Russian propaganda efforts to sway media and election on social media are much more intense than previously thought, especially their attempts at swaying the views of African Americans.  Everyone knows the Russians are scum and continue doing this just as other nations do- including the U.S.  It is what it is.   Meanwhile, U.S. Prime Minister Theresa May is facing challenges to her leadership as Brexit continues moving at a snail’s pace.   Elsewhere, CBS News says terminated producer Les Moonves, caught up in #MeToo charges, won’t receive his $120 million payout as he leaves the network.  Sucks to be him…
  63. 2019 Tuesday: The run-up to the impeachment vote of President Donald J. Trump continues as Congressman Jaime Raskin, D-MD, sitting in for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, and ranking member, Congressman Doug Collins, R-SC, appear before the House Rules Committee to hammer out the terms under which the impeachment trial will occur in the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, blasts Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, over his refusal to indulge the Democrat’s desire to call more witnesses noting that the Constitution says nothing about the Senate doing the work of the House.  The Senate serves as the jury in impeachment proceedings and nothing more.  F**k off, Chuck.
  64. 2020 Thursday: The U.S. government confirms the recent hacking of various departments.  Most believe it’s either Russia or communist China, possibly Iran.  Meanwhile, the House GOP urge President Donald J. Trump to veto the $1.4 trillion spending bill soon to come before him for his signature.  Elsewhere, director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe says the report on voter and election fraud will not be ready tomorrow as he once promised.  We will await its debut. 
  65. 2020 Thursday A: U.S. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley meets with the Taliban to discuss the ongoing peace talks in Afghanistan.  Next, the Iranian government says they have ‘no doubts’ that Pro-China Joe Biden will not immediately rejoin the JCPOA.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin says the U.S. should extend the New Start Arms Control Treaty.  Putin also says he’s up in the air as to whether he will seek another term (yeah, right) in 2024. 
  66. 2020 Thursday B: One American News Network (OAN) reported late yesterday evening on the ties Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, aka “Cocaine Mitch,” he has to communist China.  His wife, Elaine Chao, is the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping magnate and that the Chi-Coms gave “Cocaine Mitch” $1 million to help in his re-election campaign.  He and his wife apparently are extremely wealthy thanks to cultivation and investment by the Chi-Coms.  Although we have heard these rumors before, we now believe them to be the truth thanks to his pushing aside of President Donald J. Trump from almost after the 2020 Presidential Election.  Shame on you, Senator McConnell, shame on you.
  67. 2020 Thursday C: A recent Emerson poll reports that Senator Kelly Loeffler holds a 3-point lead over far-left, pro-Nation of Islam bigot the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock in their Georgia run-off Senate race while her fellow Senator David Perdue is in a dead heat with pajama boy, Jon Ossoff.   Elsewhere, Google and parent company Alphabet are hit with their third anti-trust lawsuit over their abuse of market power.  Texas and nine other states are going after the corrupt entity and we hope that they end up being broken up along with Facebook and Twitter.   Meanwhile, we hear that following Vice President Mike Pence holds the final confirmation count on January 6 in the U.S. Senate, he will then leave on an overseas trip. 
  68. 2020 Thursday D: Atlantic City is going to auction off the right to implode the former Trump Casino in that city.  Meanwhile, the Chinese Virus pandemic has caused 8 million Americans to fall into poverty over the last six months.  Elsewhere, due to redistricting beginning next year, political observers predict the GOP will recapture the House of Representatives in 2022.  That is, unless the Democrats use their fraudulent vote corruption and theft strategy, which many astute political observers such as we believe will cause the GOP NEVER to win another election ever.  Speaking of Democratic corruption, President Trump says thousands of dead people voted across Nevada in last month’s presidential election.  Might as well have added the illegal aliens, the felons, the incarcerated, the underage, the stupid, the ignorant, and the space aliens, too.
  69. 2020 Thursday E: Astronomers say they have detected radio transmissions from an exoplanet.  So far, astronomers have discovered more than 4,500 exoplanets orbiting other stars but this is the first time they have discovered radio signals- or so they believe- coming from one of these planets.  Astronomers have reported the signals come from the Tau Boötes system, one that contains a binary star and an exoplanet.  They believe the emissions come from the planet itself.  The system if 51 light years from earth with a light year equaling approximately 6 trillion miles.  Quite a ways away, folks.
  70. 2020 Thursday F: President Donald J. Trump withholds $200 million in Medicaid money from California.   HHS Secretary Alex Azar will withhold the money over the state’s demand that insurers provide abortion coverage at taxpayers’ expense. Meanwhile, the John Roberts’ U.S. Supreme Court rejects a Kentucky religious school’s desire to reopen despite the Chi-Vi lockdown.  Elsewhere, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announces a statewide ballot audit. Next, California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell keeps his lips zipped over his alleged lengthy ongoing affair with a Chi-Com MSS agent.   Finally, a Homeland Security Department watchdog blasts ICE for putting illegal aliens in solitary confinement and abusing them mentally.  Oh, boohoo, mojados, don’t come.
  71. 2020 Thursday I: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, states say Pfizer vaccine estimates for next week have been slashed.  Elsewhere, the FDA announces a study that may allow for homosexual and bisexual men to give blood donations, something that has never been allowed because of them spreading HIV-AIDS.  Finally, the CDC reports that drug overdose deaths in the U.S. over a 12-month period are the highest ever.  
  72. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,303.37, UP 148.83 points (+0.49%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,764.75, UP 106.56 points (+0.84%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,722.48, UP 21.31 points (+0.58%).  The price of GOLD is $1,885.20 per troy oz., -5.20 (-0.28%) while the price of SILVER is $26.02 per troy ounce, -0.166 (-0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,044.30 per troy oz, -5.80 (-0.55%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.0405 (+1.12%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,347.50 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.03%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.23 per barrel, -0.13 (-0.27%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.
  73. 2020 Wednesday K: Here is tonight’s Thursday Night Football game: (1) Los Angeles Chargers, 30 (5-9) @ Las Vegas Raiders, 27 (8-6) OT.
  74. 2020 Thursday L: Folks, we encourage everyone to remain vigilant to discover what the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, Cubans, North Koreans, and the lackeys in the U.S., the Democrats are up to today…speaking of these scurrilous skunks, ‘President-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden informs the world that ‘he is not concerned with son Hunter’s increasing legal troubles’ regarding tax fraud, corruption, and dealing with hostile foreign powers.  Lock him up and throw away the key.   Regarding Hunter, President Trump says he has ‘nothing to do’ with any federal prosecution of “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s son.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Back on the road, the J. Geils Band was rocking and rolling and with a new label bankrolling them, there was no stopping them.  Their original label- Atlantic Records- decided to make a few bucks off the catalogue so on June 05, 1979, it released “Best of J. Geils Band.”  The album is a glorious collection of some of the band’s best tunes, beginning with the iconic “Southside Shuffle” through “Whammer Jammer” (a superb guitar showcase) to “Must a Got Lost” to the live version of “Lookin’ for a Love” from the album, “Full House.”  We hope you will seek out this nine-tune compendium of the crème de la crème of the J. Geils Band and add it to your growing collection of the absolute best in rock music.

“Here are results for Round 1 of the 3rd Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award- out of 26 failures and bums, we end up with a list of 13 losers for Round 2” by Executive Chef Tiresias Helenus Grinikeodopuloposlus, ACF-CEC, CPC

FALL SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,700 AT THE AICP-END

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS FORTY-FOUR

Here are the results for the first round of the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award…

Century City, CA 90067, 12-17-2020 Thursday:   Friends, today is the day we announce the first-round voting for the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award, an award we one day hope is going to be as prestigious as are the Nobel Peace Prize, the Time-Life Person of the Year Award, or People Magazine’s whatever of the year award. 

We put a lot of thought into the creation of this honor because as we have said before, in the memory of one of the all-time worst communist thugs who ever drew breath– NKVD Chief Lavrentiy Beria, he is the perfect namesake for this colossal accolade.  Beria, as everyone should know by now, was an evil man who personally gave tens of thousands of condemned prisoners ‘lead to the back of the head’ in the bowels of the infamous Lubyanka Prison in Moscow.   He also was a serial rapist and a molester of young girls.  All in a day’s work in the world’s first communist state, eh? 

You see, whoever wins this tribute deserves a similar fate- in a humorous way of course.  It’s just for laughs, we would NEVER endorse violence happening to anyone, not even to communist-socialist thugs around the world or here within the borders of our very own beloved country.  We aren’t Antifa septic tank scum nor are we Black Lives Matter rent-a-thugs roaming the streets terrorizing the citizenry with impunity.[i]  We are civilized, proud, America-loving patriots and we enjoy having a laugh at the expense of our political enemies.     

As with last year’s draw, Chef Alvin will be doing the tabulations for us.  He has sent out the email ballots (hope the Chi-Coms don’t hack them) to our list of 1,248 voters this year. 

Unlike U.S. elections everyone MUST get their ballots in no later than this past Monday.  Everyone managed to meet the deadline which is good.  To move on from the first round, a nominee must have at least 25 votes.  From the second round, a total of 75 votes is required to move to the third round.  From the third round, one must have a total of 150 votes to contend for the BIG AWARD. 

The runner up will receive the coveted Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award while the third-place winner will win the Red Banner Idols Award.  Finally, for a laugh, we will award the fourth-place runner-up the Beijing Bat Bug Award, rather like the Goat in Charlie Brown.  I mean, fourth place sucks, right?  Everyone else will receive nothing because they are NOTHING.    

Okay, let us begin with our list of 26 contenders to which, I will make some comments as well as present the vote tally- in order- so I hope Alvin has added them up correctly.  Otherwise, we may have to send him to the gulags.   

First Contender: Southern Poverty Law Center.  These people are little more than a HATE GROUP that labels OTHER GROUPS as HATE GROUPS.  Still, no one cares about them, they received a total of 5 votes.  They’re out.[ii]

Second Contender: Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer: everyone who watches a channel OTHER than CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC understands this woman is a horrible human being, intoxicated by absolute power as though she were a Ceausescu[iii] or a Marie Antoinette.  Most people know who she is and despise her.  She pulled in 29 votes.  She’s on my list and will make it to the NEXT round.  All I can say is, “I am glad I don’t live in the Badger State” because if we did, we would join whatever militia seeks to depose her from office.  (LOL) 

Third Contender: Madeleine Albright: former U.S. Secretary of State under President Bill Clinton, the fossil pulled in 1 vote seeing as how she is a nobody now and no one cares what she has to say, especially when it comes to women who couldn’t pull the lever for Hillary.  She’s out- good riddance. .

Fourth Contender: Xi Jinping and communist China: since the Beijing bat virus hit the world, EVERYONE now recognizes the danger the Chi-Coms pose to the Free World and the communist country and its thug leader reaped a windfall of 265 votes.  You go, Chi-Coms, you go!

Fifth Contender: Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York.[iv]  I am amazed at how people hate this man, not just in this country but in other parts of the world.  Mo says people in Israel consider him an anti-Semite and thinks he should be in prison for going after Jews.  This dangling dog dingus pulled in 113 votes.  You are moving to the next round, Governor Moron, I mean, uh Cuomo, you, and Xi Jinping.

Sixth Contender: Chris Cuomo of CNN: 1 vote. Figures.  This fool has to be among the stupidest people in the world.  Way to go, Fraido!

Seventh Contender: UNKNOWN persons behind ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden received ZERO votes.  Most everyone wrote to say that everyone knows it’s Beijing behind Biden which is why Xi Jinping and the Chi-Coms received as many votes as they did.

Eighth Contender: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka George Soros’ mattress- most people despise this marionette but most think she is undeserving of the award this year.  She pulled in a measly 27 votes.  Still, ‘the Fly’ is moving to round two.

Ninth Contender: California Governor Gavin Newsom- people hate this scumbag, especially after the world saw him enjoying a fine dining experience at the French Laundry up in Yountville, California, in the scenic Napa Valley.  People want to see this dog impeached and I must say, they are more than half way in gathering signatures to remove him from office which explains WHY he raked in 181 votes.

Tenth Contender: New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- people despise this guy but we don’t have loads of voters within the city.  The pot-smoking, dimwitted mayor only received 41 votes.  Still, you surpassed the 25-vote threshold so you will be moving to the next round, you lucky putz.

Eleventh Contender: Black Lives Matter- right now, people are more concerned with the Chi-Coms than with their shock troops in the U.S.  They earned 12 votes.

Twelfth Contender: Antifa- like the previous contender, people feel we can deal with them at a later date.  They pulled in 22 votes.  We will deal with street trash like you scumbags at a later date.  You can count on it.

Thirteenth Contender: CNN anchor Don Lemon.  Like Fraido Cuomo, Little Donny pulled in 2 votes.  What a loser. 

Fourteenth Contender: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot- like Gavin Newsom, people around the world detest this atrocious-looking woman who- like Nancy Pelosi- feels the rules ‘apply for thee but sure as hell not for me.’  She won 44 votes. 

Fifteenth Contender: Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler- the mayor of a once-beautiful place beset by strife caused nightly by the eleventh and twelfth contenders, this POS lowlife only earned 19 votes. Guess Portland deserves what it gets.  When they become tired with the daily violence, throw all the leftists OUT.  Sorry, Ted- better luck next year.

Sixteenth Contender: Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan- another loser like the previous loser, she only earned 18 votes even with people being murdered on her watch.  Wow.  Not good.  I bet next year she will be nowhere to be found.

Seventeenth Contender: Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric Garcetti- this man has singlehandedly destroyed his city’s restaurant industry.  I mean, Holy Cow!  Him and Di Blasio should become a tag team, throwing people out of the ring and into the expensive seats and then body-slamming them.  He earned 49 votes.  You go, Mayor Garcetti, you go- worthless POS.

Eighteenth Contender: San Francisco Mayor London Nicole Breed: 3 votes.  I guess having a once-lovely city covered in human feces, discarded needles, puddles of urine, and even dead bodies does not count when we have far worse villains than this leftist whelp.  I doubt we will see her next year either because she is a NOTHING, a LOSER, and a LOW-LIFE.

Nineteenth Contender: Racist pimp lawyer Benjamin Crump- most people said, “WHO?”  He earned ZERO votes.[v] 

Twentieth Contender: Nancy Pelosi Impeachment of Trump- everyone thinks we have bigger fish to fry.  Still, this horrendous event pulled in 34 votes.  Shocking.

Twenty-First Contender: Barack Hussein Obama- EX-president.  People now believe the Golden Boy is Beijing’s man on the ground.  He pulled in 117 votes.  You go, Barack, you go! 

Twenty-Second Contender: Dominion Voting Systems from Canada- most people do not know much about these election-stealing scalawags so they earned a measly 41 votes.  This company has the power to overturn elections and overthrow governments.  We need to start dropping nukes on Ottawa.  Justin- the bombs begin falling in 30 minutes; take cover you POS.

Twenty-Third Contender: Fox News Channel: these turncoats earned 102 votes which puts them in the next round.  These scumbags broke the hearts of millions of people around the world.  The question is, WHY?  Why did they cross over to the DARK SIDE? 

Twenty-Fourth Contender: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer- this perennial loser received 101 votes.  There you, go “Crying Chuck” makes it to Round 2…

Twenty-Fifth Contender: Iran.  Again, we have bigger fish to fry right now.  They earned 17 votes. 

Twenty-Sixth Contender: Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner- 4 votes.  He deserves far more seeing as how his lack of testosterone leadership has destroyed a once admirable sport.

We end up with 13 nominees out of 26 so these lucky contestants will be moving to the next round.  Next Thursday, you will get the results of Round 2 and then on New Year’s Eve, you get the results for the third round.  Then, on January 7, 2021, you will find out who our winners are going to be.   It’s going to be exciting, my friends. 

I will see you tomorrow.  Have a great day and let us pray that somehow Donald Trump is going to win.  Do you not think it strange that Senator Kamala Harris has yet to resign her U.S. Senate seat?  Maybe she did it yesterday, I don’t know.  But if she hasn’t, you know, is preparing for the BIG MOVE to the Naval Observatory where the Second Couple resides, what does that say about what she and “Pro-China Joe” are thinking? 

Just saying.

Today’s Ten Years After album is their fifth album, “Ssssh,” which the band released in August 1969.  As usual, we have Alvin Lee (guitars/vocals) at the helm, Leo Lyons (bass), Chick Churchill (keyboards and percussion), and Ric Lee (drums).  Some of the band’s best loved tunes are on this album which is why it was such a big seller.  This album was the band’s best effort at this time, featuring many blues standards and hard rock numbers that their fans would love for the rest of the group’s existence. Buy it now by taking a digital journey to Amazon.com, and buying it NOW in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you; you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Here’s the hilarious thing: looks like the ‘incoming Pro-China Joe Biden administration is reneging on its promises to Black Lives Matter.  He is keeping them at double arm’s length because they are violent trash promoting Marxism and not civil rights.  We think both BLM and Antifa must be eradicated to the last man.  Now.

[ii] And the SPLC should be out as they are little more than white leftists calling everyone a racist, bigot, a homophobe, a hater, or whatever other charge they wish to make on any given day.  I piss on them.

[iii] Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu were communist dictators in Romania who overstayed their welcome and with the fall of the Soviet Union, they fell with it in a very bloody and public way.

[iv] I found it extremely funny to see this moron put onto his back foot by allegations of #MeToo.  It’s ugly men like this who give males a bad name because it’s clear they have to grope and grab women in order to cop any kind of a feel.  His moron younger brother seems like he’s in a perpetual ‘roid rage’ as he’s always talking shit and acting like a fool.  At 80 years of age, I could drop this POS.

[v] We haven’t seen this blood-sucking leech for the past couple of months.  Where are you, Mr. Crump?  POS.

  59. 2017 Saturday: The Trump transition team accuses Robert S. Mueller of illegally obtaining campaign emails.  The Mueller investigation is obtaining ‘evidence of collusion between President Donald J. Trump and Vladimir Putin in unlawful ways.’  Since the evidence does not exist, it would suggest that the special counsel is manufacturing his own evidence.
  60. 2018 Sunday: With the threat of a partial government shutdown looming, the White House dug in on its demand for $5 billion to build a border wall as congressional Democrats stood firm against it.  Meanwhile, over increasing scandals, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announces he is going to step down from his position.
  61. 2019 Monday: Congressional Democrats continued trying to find their collective balls to go into the House Rules Committee the next day so they could hammer out the rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump.    Meanwhile, Democrats running for the nomination of their party are begging DNC Chair Tom Perez to change the rules for inclusion for the January and February debates.  The rules’ demand for polling and donation numbers to meet certain criteria is preventing many of them from being able to participate.  
  62. 2020 Wednesday: Texas wants to become the home of the U.S. Space Force Command.  Next, President Donald J. Trump doubles down on his claims of FRAUD in the 2020 Presidential Election which are becoming clearer and clearer by the day.  He says, “Bad things happened in the 2020 Presidential Election” and must be addressed.  He also told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, that it’s ‘too soon to give up on the election’ even as Mitch and his leadership are urging their fellow GOP senators NOT to contest the election in early January.  However, in January 2017, House Democrats interrupted the proceedings no less than ELEVEN times in their bid to stop Trump from becoming the 45th president and to secure the election for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  63. 2020 Wednesday A:  The American Civil Liberties Union calls for a release of half of ALL inmates in U.S. prisons and jails because of the Chi-Vi threat.  They probably want all illegal aliens released, too.  Let’s deport them ASAP.  Meanwhile, federal prosecutors indict Canadian pervert Peter Nygard, a fashion designer, on multiple charges of sex-trafficking.  Hmmm, seems like we have a junior Jeffrey Epstein here.
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee chaired by Ron Johnson, R-WI, and ranking member, Sen. Gary Peters (who was beaten by John James in November but who maintains his seat thanks to rampant voter fraud in his state), D-MI.  Witness Christopher Krebs, recently fired by President Trump still maintains ‘no signs of foreign interference in the election’ but that ‘fraud is a criminal matter.’  He also states that ‘rumor control is extremely important.’   Chairman Ron Johnson says the “GOP is not peddling Russian disinformation’ and tells his colleague Senator Peters ‘to stop lying, that all he does is lie and to stop spreading Russian disinformation, himself.’  Amen.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, then asks a question regarding ‘if non-legislators changing election laws without the involvement of state legislators is okay’ which everyone with half-a-brain or more knows is NOT.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: Regarding the Senate Homeland Security Committee meeting on the rampant voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 Presidential and Senatorial elections, Christopher Krebs says it’s ‘important to use paper ballots so there is a paper trail which would have provided the necessary evidence as to whether there was cheating or there was not.’  Amen to that, too. We also learn that Pennsylvania was among the most corrupt states with more dead people, more illegal aliens, more multiple voters, more made-up voters, and more underage voters than anywhere else in the country.  Send Gov. Wolf to prison. 
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: In the same Senate committee hearings as outlined in the previous two points, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says back in 2016, ’32-percent of the American people believed that Vladimir Putin and the Russkies interfered in the U.S. Presidential Election to help Donald Trump and to hurt Hillary Rodham Clinton.  We did hearings then so what is wrong with holding hearings now, especially when 75 million plus Americans voted for Donald Trump’ and as Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says ‘are not going to just go away no matter how much Democrats want them to.’  Amen to that, too.  In 2016, Dems weren’t going to move on whereas NOW, they want everyone to move on and to embrace “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris as our next president and vice president.  F**k them.
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: Senator James Lankford, R-OK, also says that his state as were numerous others done with vote counting on Election Night as the country always has but look in amazement at other states STILL counting votes more than two weeks after Election Day and stating, ‘we don’t know how many ballots are left to be counted.’  Senator Lankford also points out to the Eric system- the Electronic Voter Information Center used by 30 states to monitor if people are voting more than once or in a series of places.  All states should be using this.  Senator Lankford also says that in HIS state, voter fraudsters are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law while in states with rampant voter fraud like Nevada has yet to punish anyone even with 42,000 dead voters having voted.  The Trump campaign witness and adviser Jesse Binall concurred that NO one has faced prosecution in the Silver State.
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: Regarding the election, Wisconsin Election Commission Director Meagan Wolfe calls for legislation for election reform in her corrupt state due to widespread irregularities across her state.  Meanwhile, President Trump wants a special counsel appointed to investigate Hunter Biden and perhaps his father.  Elsewhere, we learn that the Senate races in Georgia are tied- David Perdue v. Jon Ossoff and Kelly Loeffler v. Islamist ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock.  Mitch: we would be inclined to donate more cash to help the GOP candidates if you would stand with President Trump, you RINO POS.  Meanwhile, Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke says that ‘the Democrats are seeking a GREAT RESET in the United States with which to force Marxism down our throats.
  69. 2020 Wednesday G: National security adviser Robert O’Brien cuts his European trip short to rush home to deal with the ongoing Russian-Chi-Com-and-other foreign intel agents hacking into the U.S. federal government as well as taking down YouTube, Gmail, and Google.  Meanwhile, White House counsel urged President Trump not to fire POS FBI Director Christopher Wray.   Finally, Ken Starr will square off with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg in a Texas court regarding Facebook’s interference in the 2020 Elections and the vast amounts of cash Zuckerberg dropped on various entities in the election ostensibly to help them in their efforts to (1) steal the elections and (2) to censor information favorable to President Trump and the GOP.  Send this punk to prison.  Speaking of punks, it’s official, “Pro-China Joe” Biden names Mayor Pete Buttigieg to be his secretary of Transportation.   Princess, uh, Mayor Pete will become the first openly gay person to head a Cabinet position. 
  70. 2020 Wednesday H: In other news, scientists suggest that kangaroos can learn to communicate with human beings.  We believe every creature on Earth is evolving but evolution is extremely slow so no one truly notices it.  Next, Major League Baseball finally does something it should have done decades ago and that is to elevate the Negro Leagues to MLB status so all records and information will become a part of MLB history.  God bless you!  Elsewhere, feel-good liberal Dodge City, Kansas, Mayor Joyce Warshaw resigns her post after claiming she has received ‘so much email and mail threatening her life over her support of a comprehensive mask mandate.’  Wah, wah, wah, STFU.   In other news, the dictator of Turkey- Tayyip Recep Erdogan calls sanctions emplaced upon his country because it bought a Russian defense system to be an ‘attack on his nation.’  Dude, you need to shut up and GO.
  71. 2020 Wednesday I: Internal documents released on the fly from the World Health Organization, the corrupt organization in the pocket of wannabe global dictator Xi Jinping, show that their distribution plan for release of the Wuhan Virus vaccine are doomed to fail.  Elsewhere, that ignoramus Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” says ‘both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer need to go.  NOW.’
  72. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 74,087,090 confirmed cases, UP by 1,865,456 cases, 1,646,687 confirmed deaths, UP by 34,673 deaths, and 41,893,773 confirmed recoveries, DOWN by 5,324,462 recoveries from yesterday’s figures- curious.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 16,961,262 confirmed cases, UP by 273,102 new cases, 308,762 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,280 new deaths, and 7,688,057 confirmed recoveries, UP by 203,304 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 360,630 confirmed cases, 3,014 confirmed deaths, and 338,784 confirmed recoveries.
  73. 2020 Wednesday K: Next, 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: 1,671,081 confirmed cases, 21,481 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,590 confirmed cases, 278 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 212,488 confirmed cases, 3,084 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced 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, Florida: 1,155,355 confirmed number of cases, 20,480 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.   Speaking of the Yellow Fever 2020, a healthcare worker in Alaska was given the vaccine injection and immediately began having harsh reactions to the drug and had to be placed into the hospital.
  74. 2020 Wednesday L:  2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,154.54, DOWN 44.77 points (-0.15%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,658.19, UP 63.13 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,701.17, UP 6.55 points (+0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,867.30 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $25.44 per troy ounce, +0.393 (+1.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,040.00 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,348.20 per troy oz, +24.20 (+1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.86 per barrel, +0.04 (+0.08%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.
  75. 2020 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto #3517 Draw with a $14 million jackpot and the Powerball #803 Draw with $277 million up for grabs.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto first: 04, 06, 11, 12, 17, and Mega 09.  Out of 97,848 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $604 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball: 04, 23, 37, 61, 67, and Powerball 07.  Out of 95,182 winning tickets, the highest winners were 3 people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,585 apiece. 
  76. 2020 Wednesday N: Final news for the night: Fosun Pharma seeks to buy 100 million does of Biontech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for shipment to mainland communist China.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, is pushing a bill designed to punish Beijing for their annual $1 billion industry of forced organ harvesting from prisoners and members of religious groups.  No wonder the communists in Beijing HATE Senator Cotton.  The Stop Force Organs Harvesting Act would put the Chinese Communist Party thugs on notice that they must stop this egregious human rights abuse.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence will take the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine on live TV at the White House.  Particulars to come.  Finally, a federal court tells Ohio they cannot block trannys seeking to change their birth certificates to reflect their ‘identities.’
  77. 2020 Wednesday O:  Friends, we know the Chi-Coms, their lackeys Canada, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other assorted Third World s-hole countries- as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good.  Stick around to discover crimes they’ve committed today…

[i] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[ii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.  We encourage everyone to check out the music of this well-known British Invasion band. 

[iii] We look forward to sharing the music of this famed, “Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” ZZ Top sometime in the next decade.

Chi-Com-backed Fake News Media coupled with RINO Republicans and mob violence are the final ingredients in the Democrats’ strategy to rule the country

As I reported in Monday’s Today in History, we now know that at least two million agents of the MSS are in most every country at most every level of government and society, all gathering intel and propagandizing the world’s citizens as to how great the Chi-Coms are. Oh, they’re great all right- they are outdoing the Nazis and the proof of how well they are doing can be seen in how American news media, corporations, Hollywood, and even entire sections of the government kowtow to the bums in Beijing.

“Chi-Com-backed Fake News Media coupled with RINO Republicans and mob violence are the final ingredients in the Democrats’ strategy to rule the country” by Executive Chef Tiresias Helenus Grinikeodopuloposlus, ACF-CEC, CPC

FALL SESSION 2020

BLOG POST #3,699 AT THE AICP-END

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS FORTY-THREE

We’re curious as to why the Chi-Coms haven’t tried to BUY US?  You know, like the Democrats and much of the country…

Century City, CA 90067, 12-16-2020 Wednesday: Well, it would appear to be all over as we learned this past Monday afternoon, the electors met in state capitals around the country and feeble old ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, rheumy eyes and lopsided grin, and her majesty, Kamala Harris, are now official prom king and queen, you know, our next  ‘president-elect and vice-president-elect.’  Over, done, kaput, like forgetting the souffles in the dessert oven with a full house of half-starved diners, having them implode, over and out for good.  Time to go out the back door and disappear.   

The question is, WHAT will the Republicans do about the blatant theft of the 2020 Presidential Election when it arrives at the nation’s capital?  Are they content to stand by and watch the ensuing disaster?  Are they convinced that things will somehow return to “normal” and that we will return to the way things were,[i] you know, prior to Trump.  “Normal” means when they could put forth one RINO candidate after another and lose with honor, dignity, and with millions of dollars of Chi-Com cash in their pockets for their troubles?  Let us hope that this is not the case.     

We left off yesterday with our discussion on the strategy the Democrats have been employing since 2000, the one with which, they vilify Republican presidents around the clock- never giving them a moment’s rest except in odd cases such as the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  George W. Bush caught a breather for a week or so and then the vilification furnace fired right back up, concern about the mistreatment of jihadist POWS in the hands of the CIA taking precedence over the beheadings of journalists by said jihadists as well as all the murder, mayhem, rape, and destruction engineered or caused by them.

The Dems voted to go to war in Iraq, almost every single one of them, and then when weapons of mass destruction did not turn up, the Dems began behaving like your average criminal in police custody, “NOPE, DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT, DON’T REMEMBER A DAMNED THING, NOPE, NOPE, NOPE, IT’S ALL GEORGE W. BUSH’S FAULT” denying they had a hand in going to war.  It’s what they do and amazingly it always seems to work.

We left off with the final two things on the Democrats’ strategy list- a compliant fake news media and ginned up mob violence, looting, assault, murder, robbery, rape when necessary, and arson.[ii] 

On the one hand, the media reports what the Dems (and perhaps the Chi-Coms) want them to report while the shock troops on the ground commit all manner of egregious and violent acts against anyone designated to be an enemy of the party and the state.  This is designed to prevent people from gathering in public (unless it’s an Antifa/Black Lives Matter[iii] protest) because no one wants to become a victim of violence or of the Chi-Com Bat Flu. 

Most of the media won’t report on the violence that has gone on all year unless the cops are on the giving end of it and then, it’s okay to egg on the mobs to go out and destroy stores and assault citizens because everyone knows ‘protests’ are okay but political rallies sure the heck aren’t.   Thus, they were able to neutralize President Trump’s greatest strength, his interactions with the American people, which left him very few avenues with which he could do so- mostly social media- and those hacks either attacked his tweets or censored them.

Friends, we are living in a time that does not bode well for the people of this country.  It’s a time in which, our government, instead of investigating communists as they did in the 1940s and 1950s now is infested with far too many communists who are investigating we, the people. 

In wrapping things up today, let me give credit where credit is due.  We must congratulate the Chi-Coms.  Oh, they’re scum, they’re following the Nazi model all right.  Like the Nazis sent the Hitler Youth on bicycling tours throughout pre-World War II Europe to promote Nazism and to gather intelligence, so, too, are the Chi-Coms infesting not only the United States but the rest of the world.  Their cockroaches are insinuating themselves into every nook and cranny, vermin, I tell you, vermin.   

As I reported in Monday’s Today in History, we now know that at least two million agents of the MSS are in most every country at most every level of government and society, all gathering intel and propagandizing the world’s citizens as to how great the Chi-Coms are.[iv]  Oh, they’re great all right- they are outdoing the Nazis and the proof of how well they are doing can be seen in how American news media, corporations, Hollywood, and even entire sections of the government kowtow to the bums in Beijing.

I guess we will pick back up with this train of thought on Friday or Saturday depending upon how long tomorrow’s first round of the Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award goes.   

Let’s see if the Chi-Coms pay attention to our blog (we know they do): when we see a check for $2 million in the post office box, we will know that what I am saying is the honest to God’s truth.[v]

Join me tomorrow.  I will see you all then.

This is me as a young chef at an awards dinner at the Bon Adventure Hotel in the 1980’s when I was working there as the Night Sous Chef’s Assistant. I began cooking in the 1960’s in my native Greece before moving to Los Angeles, California, in the early 1970’s. I apprenticed under an ACF Master Chef shortly thereafter and now here I am. I still am involved in professional foodservice as an instructor.

Today’s Ten Years After album is their fourth album, “Stonedhenge,” which the band released on February 22, 1969.  Once again, we have the same quartet of hard-rocking Birmingham, England, rock-and-rollers: guitar phenomena and vocalist Alvin Lee, fiery bassist Leo Lyons, powerhouse drummer Ric Lee, and stellar keyboardist Chick Churchill.  This was probably the band’s weakest effort to date yet, it still had songs the fans loved.  For that reason alone, it is important that one listen to a band’s music in the order in which, they originally released it so as to have a full appreciation of just how great these guys were.  This one is a definite must-have for any collector of the band. Buy it now by visiting your favorite site for the absolute best in music; we suggest visiting Amazon.com and buying it in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did- we guarantee it.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Makes me think of a song by Babs.  The way things WERE.  He song, “The Way We Were,” if you look at the lyrics, it seems to be on the same wavelength of the RINO Republicans.  Speaking of RINOS, some Michigan GOPPER Representative Paul Mitchell ‘quit the GOP because of Trump.’  Sounds like another Justin Amash or Arlen Specter.  BOTH LOSERS.

[ii] I guess the news media has been going down this road since the Clinton years but with eight years of Obama and then four of Trump, it’s like a roadside bomb has gone off, blowing everything up.  The damned media now seems to be a propaganda arm for the left-wing liberal Democrats as well as the communists in Beijing. 

[iii] Funded by the Chi-Coms as we know.

[iv] I began wondering about things when I started seeing Chi-Com companies in Hollywood movie credits or portions of a storyline that featured locations in communist China or entire storylines in China like the one in which, Matt Damon was in- “Great Wall,” I think.  I thought WTF at the time but now understand how the Chi-Coms have been stringing us along and reeling us in, fat capitalist fish ripe for the plucking.  It truly is insidious and remember- I was born in World War II Greece, my parents were socialists but had the good sense to get us out of post-World War II Greece and here to the U.S.  I never thought communism would be blossoming here.

[v] Yeah, right.  IF we get a check in the post office box for even a dollar from the communists in Beijing, we will report it to the FBI.  However, we don’t know which side of the fence the Federal Bureau of Investigation sits but the way things look, many of us believe most of our government now favors the Chi-Coms.  Where the hell can we go?
