JTF: As every saucier knows, reduction leads to the ultimate sauce so using these principles on our Democratic candidates leaves us with Klobuchar, Bloomberg, and Howard Schultz- if he would reconsider

Now, I like a good rabble rouser as much as anyone does but Bernie, folks, I simply am not ‘feeling the Bern.’  I am a liberal fellow as is my wife, Nadia, but we own property, have a business, we donate to liberal causes and charities but I don’t want some distant apparatchik in Washington, D.C., taxing us out of existence to pay for all this FREE stuff for non-producers like dope heads and non-citizens.  When did that become part of being a Democrat?

FALL SESSION 2019

 

PEARL HARBOR DAY—NEVER FORGET!

 

BLOG POST #3,324 AT THE AICP-END

 

334 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty and talk about WHO has a chance in our party to win and WHY

Arvin, CA 93203, 12-07-2019 Saturday:  Yesterday, I started updating our look at the various nominees seeking to lead our party to victory and by the time I concluded my post, we found ourselves left with Amy Klobuchar, Joe Biden, and Bernie Sanders, the only three left from my commentary six months ago, as well as three new ones, Tom Steyer, Deval Patrick, and Michael Bloomberg (as well as one who never really entered the race, Howard Schultz, the Starbucks magnate).

Considering that the others I mentioned yesterday- such as Liz Warren, the inauthentic woman with pie in the sky dreams of forcing EVERY American onto some sort of far-left, soul-killing, one-size-fits-all health care plan (as well as setting our nation back by ending all reliance on fossil fuels) or Kamala Harris who is already gone or Liz who will soon be, all we have left from the original pack are Amy, Joe, and Bernie.

Now, I like a good rabble rouser as much as anyone does but Bernie, folks, I simply am not ‘feeling the Bern.’  I am a liberal fellow as is my wife, Nadia, but we own property, have a business, we donate to liberal causes and charities but I don’t want some distant apparatchik in Washington, D.C., taxing us out of existence to pay for all this FREE stuff for non-producers like dope heads and non-citizens.  When did that become part of being a Democrat?

This is the thing that is irking me, half the party remains the liberal faithful while the once submerged uber-far-left, i.e., the socialists and the communists, have bubbled up from the bottom and now purport to be the ‘mainstream’ of the party.  They aren’t.

Now, Tom Steyer, latecomer to the race, is a sham guy.  He acts as though he is a BIG ENVIRONMENTALIST but the scum made his money on eradicating thousands of acres of koala bear habitat in Australia so he could mine billions of dollars-worth of coal as well as on privatized prisons- something NO conscientious Democrat at any level can or would ever accept- he should be a damned Republican.

Oh, he talks a good game, wants to impeach #45 which is all well and good but most all of us- and many Republicans, too, to give them a nod- want to see this worthless, crooked POS gone so woo-woo, there, Tommy old boy.  I predict this guy will be out of the race by the time we pick up again and the good thing is in the last debate, Joe Biden called him out on his coal-derived wealth to which the stunned phony had no answer.

Then, former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick entered the race and while he might be a good guy, capitalist and all, very few people know him and what’s more if they did, they wouldn’t care.  For a black gentleman, he comes off as extremely vanilla to me and no one is going to give him a shot- unless it’s between HIM and Bernie.

Then, we have Michael Bloomberg, a man of enormous wealth, he makes #45 look like a street urchin, a pauper, a beggar, and the guy has a certain amount of class.  He will have to get past ‘stop and frisk’ as well as trying to micromanage New Yorkers’ lives by restricting the size of sodas they could guzzle, the straws they no longer can use to enjoy them, or telling every restaurant in New York City that they could not put salt shakers on the damned tables.  That, my friends, is plain f**king insane.

The question is with a President Bloomberg, will we have dietary police inspecting every restaurant and fining us restaurant owners and operators if we provide salt to our guests?  Will they behave like the morality police of Iran or Saudi Arabia or any other Third World despotic hellhole of a country by taking food service operators out and giving them public canings?  I would hope not because if so, I think we will witness riots from one end of the country to the other because we don’t want to live in a nanny state.

I am going to say something you might find surprising is that Howard Schultz, well, he did not look so bad. Personally, the more capitalism the better because our goal as a political party should be in lifting everyone UP instead of trying to bring everyone DOWN.  That makes no sense and it is never going to bring us victory.  Besides, who the f**k wants to be ‘Venezuela?’

All that remains is Senator Klobuchar, D-Minn.  Now, they say she can be bitchy and is hard to work with or for, well, she sort of looks like someone who demands results and expects them as quickly as possible.  I like her and I believe she could be the one.  Here is something I said about her earlier in the year:

“I like Senator Klobuchar, I think she is a solid candidate, one who could be a sleeper in the race.  While the others battle it out in the upcoming debates, as along as she can hold her own and be on topic when the questions fly her way, she will be able to move on and then launch a hefty attack on the remnants who survive the first couple of debates.”  (Davis, 22-June-2019)

Right now, the nuts are battling for supremacy.  The next debate features Joe Biden, Liz Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Tom Steyer, Bernie Sanders, and Pete Buttigieg.  This one will take place on December 19, 2019 and should be among the best as it features the least number of debaters yet.  However, I am not sure if anyone else can get in before then or not.  It would be a shame for Tulsi Gabbard not to be included.

I think it is going to the ultimate bloodletting as I will predict now that Steyer will be gone as will Liz Warren, and sadly, maybe Joe Biden, too.  I love the guy but him talking about black kids playing in his lap (surprised he didn’t call them pickaninnies, thank God for small favors) and rubbing his leg hair all the while he’s sucking Dr. Jill’s finger in front of a crowd but what the hell is going on in his attic?

Meanwhile, Deval Patrick will flit about on the outside, disappearing as quickly as he entered (Obama loses yet again) while Michael Bloomberg continues acting like an independent and not a Democrat.  Still, if our choices are between Bernie and Bloomberg, Bloomberg will get my vote- hands down.

Friends let’s remember our brave dead from the attack on Pearl Harbor, what- 78 frigging years ago- amazing.  If I make it to 2039, I could see the 100th anniversary of the start of World War II…now, that would be something.

See you tomorrow for my final post of the year.  Next year…next year will be Armageddon, folks.

Today’s Mothers of Invention album is their twenty-third album, “Playground Psychotics,” which appeared on record store shelves on October 27, 1992 and was another exciting look at the heyday of the Mothers.  Over the course of Frank Zappa’s life, he went back and forth between working with the original Mothers and then with various lineups in between.  This is one of the better collections of nothing but the best.   We recommend that you take the link posted above, go to Amazon.com, and buy this album NOW. Thank you.

Paul Rodgers released his next album, “Cut Loose,” on October 15, 2011.  This album originally came out in 1983 and was the artist’s first official solo album.  The singer played all the instruments and did an admirable job.  Rodgers also wrote all 10 songs and they remain to this day as some of his all-time best compositions.  We hope you will visit Amazon.com where you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you.  You can thank us later.

 

 

 

 

 

[i] 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.

[ii] We hope to offer the music of Alice Cooper one day so please keep posted until we do.  We think you will appreciate them, especially the original band.

[iii] When the hell is President Trump going to pardon this poor son-of-a-bitch?

[iv] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[v] We hope to present the music of the Nice as well as Emerson, Lake & Palmer at some point within the next five years.  Please remain posted for the day that we do.

JTF: I don’t envy DNC boss Tom Perez what with more candidates entering the battle for the 2020 nomination even as others drop out; it’s going to get bloody

Don’t laugh, folks. Money is the mother’s milk of politics (as well as of private life). All monies these candidates raise, although subject to scrutiny, can still be manipulated, moved around, and pop up somewhere else. On occasion, a politician here and another there will get called on the carpet for mishandling campaign funds but most of the time, they manage to abscond with their riches.

BLOG POST #3,301 AT THE AICP-END

 

357 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

The more the merrier- the more Democrats enter the fray as others withdraw, the more it’s going to resemble a Democratic “Night of the Long Knives”

San Luis Obispo, CA 93403, 11-14-2019 Thursday:  Back in June of this year, I wrote a post about the first Democratic Party presidential debate and who was going to participate in it.  That first one was crazy what with twenty people participating, all going toe-to-toe with one another seeking that breakthrough moment that would put them on a trajectory with winning the nomination of their party.  Since then, quite a few have tumbled onto the side of the road while a core group of hardcore leftist-socialists managed to move on and who have more or less managed to be in all (or most) subsequent debates.

The upcoming debate will occur on November 20, 2019, six days from now.  As of the sixth of this month (the cutoff was yesterday), the participants will be:

  1. Joe Biden[i]
  2. Cory Booker[ii]
  3. Pete Buttigieg[iii]
  4. Tulsi Gabbard[iv]
  5. Kamala Harris[v]
  6. Amy Klobuchar[vi]
  7. Bernie Sanders[vii]
  8. Tommy Steyer[viii]
  9. Elizabeth Warren[ix]
  10. Andrew Yang[x]

Since that first fiasco with twenty hopefuls going up against one another, Kirsten Gillibrand[xi], John Hickenlooper[xii], Jay Inslee[xiii], Beto[xiv], Tim Ryan[xv], Eric Swalwell[xvi], and Bill Di Blasio[xvii] have fallen out.

Others still in the running but so far have not yet qualified are John Delaney[xviii], Steve Bullock[xix], Julian Castro[xx], Wayne Messam[xxi] (really?  Drop out, loser), Marianne Williamson[xxii], Michael Bennett[xxiii], and I think Joe Sestak[xxiv].  We also have Michael Bloomberg floating the possibility of him running which I think will garner as much positivity as Mayor Di Blasio did.  Namely, NOT MUCH.

I imagine there are one or two others I may have overlooked but here’s the deal: IF I can’t name them, they mean little to nothing except to those who care about them.  Why are Mayor Messam and Congressman Sestak even in the running?  They can’t get on the debate stage any more than Seth Moulton[xxv] could, they can’t earn any followers so perhaps it’s the most American dream of all, they are socking away whatever money they do raise to use elsewhere such as in their private lives.

Don’t laugh, folks.  Money is the mother’s milk of politics (as well as of private life).  All monies these candidates raise, although subject to scrutiny, can still be manipulated, moved around, and pop up somewhere else.  On occasion, a politician here and another there will get called on the carpet for mishandling campaign funds but most of the time, they manage to abscond with their riches.

Add to this the fact each of them can go about crowing about having been a ‘presidential contender’ as though they truly possessed the nomination of their party and went down to stinging, remorseless defeat.  Being a former presidential candidate might earn one free drinks in a tavern but on the BIG STAGE, it means absolutely nothing, zip, zero, zilch, nada.  Boom!

I understand, too, that the make or break moment to get onto the ballot in New Hampshire and possibly Iowa is tomorrow.  So, we will see if Hillary Rodham Clinton enters the fray just as we will if some other, as of now unknown candidate (many on the left are pining away for Michelle Obama) will jump into the ring to seek the championship belt.

If tomorrow is the last day to enter one’s name onto the ballot in New Hampshire, why then, is Mayor Bloomberg’s underlings entering him in Alabama, one among the bevy of states of Super Tuesday?  If he is serious, why not try to win as many primaries as possible so one can amass the necessary delegate count?  You know, the BIG 270?

Here is our 2020 primary races by date[xxvi]:

  1. 03-February-2020: Iowa Caucuses
  2. 11-February-2020: New Hampshire Primary

  13. 28-April-2020: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island Primaries
  14. 02-May-2020: Kansas Primary; Guam Caucuses

  19. 06-June-2020: U.S. Virgin Islands Caucuses
  20. 16-June-2020: District of Columbia Primary

When it comes to the debates, here is something I said back in that June 01, 2019 post; see if you agree:

“Although DNC Chairman Tom Perez celebrates the number of candidates, he has to feel like the ringmaster at a three-ring circus.  It is going to be ugly as the requirements for the successive debates will continue growing tighter and tighter.  The amount of political bloodshed will be astounding, to say the least.” (MacDougal, 01-June-2019)

It is going to be exciting to watch and if former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick[xxvii], if Hillary[xxviii], or Michelle, or some as yet other unknown enters the race, wow. Heck, if I were Howard Schultz[xxix] and I saw this dimwit Bloomberg entering the scuffle, I might do a doubletake and return to the running.  It is going to be months and months of the ‘Night of the Long Knives’ as desperate candidates seek to whack one another.  Yikes.

See you tomorrow.

Above, you see the caricature created for me by Bakersfield street artist, the amazing Simone.  We have gone this route because of increasing threats against the blog and its members.  I began my career as a young chef in the kitchen back in 1975, earlier than that.  I apprenticed underneath my father and spent six years working for him in his British-Irish restaurant in Fresno, California.  I later moved to Frazier Park, California, and spent quite a few years working in the area and that is where I met Stinkbug.  Anyhow, I am now working at a country club over on the coast near San Luis Obispo.  Please note: this is my pen name and any photos of me are simply outdated photos adopted for maintaining my privacy.

#48.7o Fairfield Halls Live 1970 #30 05-23-2014 (400)

Mott the Hoople released their next archival live show, “Fairfield Halls Live,” on October 09, 2007.  This effort captured the band in its earlier days, September 13, 1970 with the original lineup doing what they did best and that is delivering an insane live show.  Fans love it because the sound is phenomenal, which is why we enjoy it as much as we do.  We encourage everyone to use the link we provide you here so you can visit Amazon.com and pick the CD up there in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you…yes, we are back with Amazon.com so please, seek it out and add it to your collection now- you will be glad you did.

 

 

 

 

[i] CHOMO Joe entered the race on 21-April-2019 and despite being buoyant in the polls, always manages to bob back up to the surface as anyone who attacks him usually plummets straight down into the basement.  Ask Julian Castro how things are going for him?  Ask Senator Harris how things are going for her?  She should be leaving the race SOON.

[ii] “Creepy” Cory Booker announced on 01-February-2019.  It’s a wonder this loser remains in the race.

[iii] Entered the race on 14-April-2019.  The only reason Mayor Pete garners the interest that he does is (1) because he is a homosexual and (2) he speaks well.  He also was a REMF as well as guy who loves kissing his hubby on TV (although his Christian pastor brother-in-law is overly critical of his fake origin story).

[iv] Announced on 11-January-2019.

[v] Announced on 21-January-2019 on the 90th birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  She only achieved her AG spot in the state of California and her U.S. Senate seat because she was banging former California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown.

[vi] Announced on 10-February-2019 in a blinding snowstorm in Minnesota.  Although not a looker, compared to some of the other nuts, she would be preferable.  Still, she hasn’t got a snowball’s chance in hell.

[vii] Official announcement on 02-March-2019 in Chicago, Illinois.  We all knew the old commie was running.

[viii] This owner of Australian coalmines and private prisons across the United States and now self-professed climate warrior (yeah, right, you can’t be that if you destroyed thousands of acres of koala bear habitat so you could mine for coal) entered the race on 08-July-2019.  How he believes he has a chance is beyond any of us.  We expect him to leave and soon.  He can go back to pushing impeachment of Donald J. Trump.  Oh, wait, that slobbering feces-eater Adam Schiff stole that one from Steyer.  Go home, Steyer, go the f**k home.

[ix] Announced on 09-February-2019.

[x] Announced on 06-November-2017.

[xi] Announced on 15-January-2019 and withdrew from the race on 28-August-2019.  She was the FIFTH Democrat to withdraw from the race after receiving absolutely little to no buzz, so boring and so disingenuous is she.

[xii] The former Colorado governor entered the battle on 04-March-2019 and bailed out on 15-August-2019.  Although he plans to challenge the GOP senator in his state- Cory Gardener- it is doubtful he will be able to win that seat unless he provides free marijuana edibles to every voter.  He was the second putz to withdraw from the race.

[xiii] Announced on 01-March-2019 and became the THIRD Democrat to drop out of the race.  He did so on 21-August-2019.  His lackluster performance and his quick withdrawal demonstrates what a loser a campaign based solely on GLOBAL WARMING will get you: NOTHING.

[xiv] This incredibly ignorant and highly untelegenic candidate entered the fray on 14-March-2019 to enthusiastic crowds of millennials around the country.  After swearing to take away everyone’s guns in the third or fourth debate, this amazingly stupid loser had to withdraw from the running on 01-November-2019.  He was the EIGHTH Democrat to abandon the running to his betters.

[xv] He entered the race on 04-April-2019 and while somewhat sane when compared with his fellows, his campaign was as exciting as watching seagull droppings harden on the sidewalk.  He left the race on 24-October-2019 becoming the SEVENTH Democrat to leave the running.  Boo hoo.

[xvi] This dingbat entered the race on 08-April-2019 and left it on 08-July-2019 becoming the FIRST Democrat to bail out because NO one knows who the hell he was and if they did know, they wondered why a cretin such as he even thought he had an opportunity?  This guy should lose his congressional seat in November 2020 and go back to cleaning the streets.  Dumb, ignorant f**k.

[xvii] This yoyo entered the race on 16-May-2019 and left it on 20-September-2019.  How this halfwit ever thought he had what it requires to win the nomination is beyond any of us here at the AICP-END Blogs.

[xviii] Announced his run on 28-July-2017.  He is the longest announced candidate for 2020.

[xix] Entered the race on 14-May-2019.  Like Colorado Senator Michael Bennett, he has NO chance to win the 2020 nomination of the Democratic Party.  The Montana governor is much too sensible to compete with the nuts in the running now.

[xx] Announced on 12-January-2019.  After savaging Joe Biden in one of the first debates, his stock has plummeted to the crapper.  This loser should withdraw from the race.  Perhaps he can be our next ambassador to Cuba?

[xxi] The mayor of Miramar, Florida, entered the race on 28-March-2019.  So what?  He says he wants to eliminate ALL student debt and claims he has lured businesses away from the People’s Republic of (Communist) China.  Oh, really?  Name one.

[xxii] Announced on 28-January-2019.  She’s Oprah Winfrey’s girl.

[xxiii] Senator Bennett entered the race on 02-May-2019.  While in a past life he might have gone the distance, now, he is too moderate, too sane, and has NO chance whatsoever of winning the nomination.

[xxiv] Congressman Sestak entered the race on 22-June-2019.  Why he still is in it, no one knows unless, of course, it’s to raise loads of money (well, comparative ‘loads’ compared to others) so he can finance his future House campaigns.

[xxv] Moulton entered the race on 21-April-2019 and left it on 23-August-2019.  He was the fourth Democrat to exit the contest.

[xxvi] Visit this site for more information: < https://www.270towin.com/2020-election-calendar/ >

[xxvii] Started putting out feelers on Monday, November 11, 2019.  That should tell you something.

[xxviii] Hillary Clinton said on March 04, 2019 that she was NOT- I repeat- NOT going to seek the nomination.  We all know she will.

[xxix] Announced he would not run on 06-September-2019 after critics said nasty things about him- IF he ran as an independent- would reelect Donald Trump to another term.  Look, the former CEO of Starbucks seems like a good guy, it’s a shame that leftist nuts terrorized him into submission.

[xxx] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[xxxi] These are proto-communist movements and are backed by the Democratic Party in general and that POS communist Georgy Soros.  Someone needs to whack this guy.

[xxxii] Question: the Democrats swore to us that Obamacare was the end-all, be-all for socialized medicine in this country.  WHY is only Joe Biden the one wanting to keep it, fix it, and promote it?  Why do the rest of the scum running for the 2020 nomination want to stuff Medicare-for-All down our throats (or up our keysters)?   Enough is enough, already.
