IF the American people won’t stand up to tyrannical government, we stand to lose far more than our businesses and our 2nd Amendment rights

No, we are the defenders of the Alamo- somos los defensores del Alamo. We took a bayonet of sorts in the guts on November 03, 2020, when these scoundrels stole the election from us like starving illegal aliens do one’s groceries haphazardly left on the back seat of their car.

“IF the American people won’t stand up to tyrannical government, we stand to lose far more than our businesses and our 2nd Amendment rights” by Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto, CEC-ACF

WINTER SESSION 2021

BLOG POST #3,768 AT THE AICP-END

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 623

WE have the power to determine how many of our rights we will surrender to the Democratic-Socialists…

Shafter, CA 93263, 02-23-2021 Tuesday:   Amigos, we have a problem with senile Joe- el débil Joe– Biden in the White House, this old coot wants to appropriate our guns.  There, I said it, “BINGO!”  The man wants to go puerta a puerta with his storm troopers, his jack-booted band of thugs, and scoop up our guns so my family and I have no way of protecting ourselves.  When the numbers of illegal aliens dumped onto our streets have nowhere to go, no way to find food, water, shelter, or support, these scumbags are going to try to break into our homes, bust out the windows of our businesses, and assault us where we stand.  No, I’ve always been someone who values his CCW because if someone tries to jack me, I am going a soltar el tonto culo where he stands.

However, with crazy old Joe in the White House, my family and I have come to a grand conclusion as what to do, exactamente lo mismo we as business owners must do: band together and say, “NO!  We are not going to let you run our lives anymore.”  If everyone would band together, we would be able to send a penetrating bolt of miedo into all of these elected politicians who believe themselves to be dictators like Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro.    

Our restaurants and small business are dying, nuestras vidas están en la basura, and if we recall Gavin Newsom, Sacramento will still be full of Democratic-Socialists until Election Day November 2022.  The big box stores, the corporations, the chain restaurants, los extranjeros ilegales running hibachi grills on street corners here in Shafter, cooking up the carne nervuda of stray dogs, cats, and opossums, it’s what they do. 

Add to that the never-ending flow of food wagons trundling around the city, prowling into the parks where the ilegales hang together with the homeless, all the while the rest of us see our businesses dying or dead because as law-abiding citizens, we play by the rules instead of circumventing the rules. 

It’s a horrendous cost and until every business owner agrees to reopen on the same day, at the same hour, from one end of the country to the other, and agree to support one another, there is nothing the frigging government can do to YOU, ME, or to ANYONE else with a big swinging pair and an oversized dangler. 

Nope, nothing these hijos de puta chupadores de escoria can do to anyone which is why we have a choice: are we the courageous Tejanos inside the Alamo willing to fight to the bloody end because we believe in something greater than ourselves or are we the inferior Mexican troops assembled outside the Alamo waiting to storm in and to put everyone to the sword. 

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am sure I have distant family members who fleshed out the ranks of General Antonio López de Santa Anna, the brave men who for more than a week tried to storm the walls and were thrown back, time after time, their dead and dying bodies littering the killing fields surrounding the old mission.  Thrown back countless times, they finally breached the walls on several sides, stormed within, and killed everyone they encountered, combatant and noncombatant alike. 

However, things did not go well for General Santa Anna.  No, several weeks later, they met an angry force of Tejanos who routed the Mexicans at the Battle of San Jacinto and sent them fleeing for their lives.  They captured General Santa Anna who was also the president of Mexico, and even worse for him, they caught him without his wooden leg on.  There was no way he could leap atop his horse and fly south, due south, on the heels the rest of his troops who managed to escape the slaughter.  

Now we can surmise his captors wanted to lynch their defeated foe but Sam Houston saw something better to be had by preserving the man’s life.  Oh, it wasn’t his personality, I am sure he behaved like a pomposo pedazo de materia fecal mexicana as only the highborn in that country can.  Sam Houston thought it better to give the man his life and his leg.  All he had to do was to sign the future Lone Star state over to the Tejanos and away we go.

No, we are the defenders of the Alamo- somos los defensores del Alamo.  We took a bayonet of sorts in the guts on November 03, 2020, when these scoundrels stole the election from us like starving illegal aliens do one’s groceries haphazardly left on the back seat of their car. 

No, these basura intrigantes got their guy into the White House and quite possibly, the Antichrist in there with him.  Kamala Harris, say what you will about the political hack, one day she will be calling the shots which is why we must fight back now, both on reopening our businesses and defending our guns.

Like you, my family and I spent all last year growing our collection of guns, ammo, and accessories just on the off chance that Joe Biden somehow won the election.  I mean no one thought he was going to win it because other than his Senate seat, he’s never won anything else.  He was like his vice president, he bowed out early in the running, went home to sulk and plot his revenge. 

Well, he said he’s going to take our guns.  Thankfully, Kern County is an (undeclared) sanctuary county for guns in the Golden State.  We have a good sheriff.  Still, we can no longer take chances so I told family members to take my guns while I took some of theirs so when- or if- the gun grabbers come to the house seeking them, everyone on the block and in my family will tell them- without a shred of guilt- ‘someone stole our guns and we were just going to inform you of this travesty.”

Sure, they can come into the home and muck about but people that have old septic tanks or who have the ability to sink a chest into the backyard whereby to store their guns and ammo can do sans any accompanying fear.  You see, in the house, we have all manner of other weapons but nothing the cops or the National Guard will ever find which is good.  We either all stand together or we will all swing together and I have NO intention of dangling from a stink tree anytime soon.[i]  

It also helps to have a good attorney as well as solid neighbors who all feel the same way.  We will continue with more tomorrow.

Muchas gracias, buen amigos!

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog.  I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse.  I was a young cook back in the early 1960’s when I commenced my culinary career.  I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own.  I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska.  From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug.

[i] Amigos, we like to think that the rank-and-file law enforcement officers, the National Guard, and the U.S. military will defend the rights of the American people rather than infringe upon them and go after us.  We cannot permit overbearing government to topple the U.S. Constitution and to force some bogus left-wing regimen of rules down our throats, hence why we must do everything we can secure our firearms while obtaining more using whatever means necessary.

Parents have a commitment to help their children up to the age of 18 which means if a kid is exhibiting signs of mental illness, then the parents have a duty to obtain psychiatric intervention for them

We must reclaim our food supply. We must reclaim our educational system. We must understand and demand to know what is occurring around us in the atmosphere, in the water, and in the soil. We also must engrain and enshrine protections for the existing order so we can then add the new order to the protections. To get something, you must give something and I am saying that we will fight against the perversion of our society by those seeking to rip it asunder just to push through a sick agenda.

WINTER SESSION 2021

BLOG POST #3,762 AT THE AICP-END

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 629

NO matter what gay groups or the ‘law’ says about gay conversion therapy for one’s kids, it’s the duties of the parents to HELP THEM

Los Angeles, CA 93064, 02-17-2021 Wednesday:  Yesterday and the day before, we began talking about the sad transformation of American society into one of celebration of misguided and dare I say it- mentally ill individuals– at the expense of everyone else.  I spoke of the ludicrous lie used by the Gay community to equate themselves with the struggle of black Americans even though the chains placed atop the LGBTQIA+ community were self-imposed, i.e., in the closet, so to speak, so as not to be persecuted by straight society.    

While that is dreadful, it’s also understandable and I will admit, times do change.  I am glad that gay Americans can participate in normal society, we can be accepting of most everyone- certainly not of pedophiles (but I expect that that will be the next link on the Democratic Party’s identity group chain because they sure do seem to have loads of money[i]) and can do so with warmth.  After all, we are an accepting society, one that has evolved into ending slavery, providing equality to everyone, and working to plow ahead but this does not mean, we have to destroy the fabric of society to coddle the feelings of a questionable few.

As I pointed out yesterday, something is wrong in our culture when the livestock upon which, we rely for nourishment is being polluted with all manner of antibiotics and hormones, most of which, no one knows about.  This is not something new; no, it’s something that has been ongoing for decades now and we are reaping the negative rewards of such behavior.  Even the Chinese are decrying a lack of manliness in their males and I suspect they share similar problems as does much of the rest of the world.[ii]

Other environmental issues exist, too, such as chemicals injected into our water supply of which, we know extraordinarily little just as something is occurring in the skies above us and in numerous locales see vast patterns of chem trails above their heads several days of each week.  They have become so commonplace, very few ever inquire as to what is going on above them when in fact everyone should be demanding answers.[iii] 

Chemicals are all around us, in everything we consume, everything we use, and seldom is there ever an accounting.  Cancer and other diseases seem to be more prevalent now than they ever were just as a pandemic for which, the world did not ask ‘suddenly appeared.’   

Add to that a vaccine for which, we know little to nothing is rapidly becoming mandatory, a panacea to help us, one that demands all manner of lies, falsehoods, propaganda, and misinformation that millions of Americans now fear getting one of these vaccines.  I mean, the Grand Ayatollah of Iran (a nut cake to be sure) warned his fellow citizens to stay away from those who received the Russia Sputnik vaccine because they had ’become homosexuals’ (his words).   What caused the POS thug to utter those words?

The third thing I mentioned yesterday as yet another cause of rampant perversity- education- shares a big place on the platform because we have so many leftist teachers imbued with sick agendas educating our young people.  They are praying on their questioning, open minds and sticking sick tidbits of foulness into their preadolescent gray matter.  We see ‘drag queens reading to grade schoolers’ in public and school libraries programs,’ stuff that even 20 years ago, parents would have screeched was outrageous.  Now, it’s accepted with no pushback.

Friends, I would like to think I am an open-minded individual and am accepting of most of my fellow Americans.  Thus, I will say this,  what I closed with yesterday: for the sake of women’s sports and girls’ sports, create a third category of sports- one for transgender students.  Allow them to compete against one another.  Allow them to have their own dressing facilities.  If their families claim it’s okay for them to do so, then let them do so, it’s none of our business.

What is our business is protecting the rights of women and girls (as well of boys and men).  We must protect their rights first so we can then protect the rights of this miniscule minority of people who have gender dysphoria.  Why do we have to destroy everything to placate a misguided few? 

If liberals want to protect trannys, then first protect the two biological genders as if you don’t, then you are protecting NO one.  In essence, you are sowing the dragon’s teeth of hatred and anger for generations to come, something no sane person should ever desire to see.

We must reclaim our food supply.  We must reclaim our educational system.  We must understand and demand to know what is occurring around us in the atmosphere, in the water, and in the soil.  We also must engrain and enshrine protections for the existing order so we can then add the new order to the protections.  To get something, you must give something and I am saying that we will fight against the perversion of our society by those seeking to rip it asunder just to push through a sick agenda. 

We also must be able to help those who seek it.  Parents have responsibility up until their kids reach age 18 and must be able to obtain help for them without having homosexual groups hiding behind the law prevent them from doing so. 

These radical gays recruit misguided young men especially but also women.  Likewise, the U.S. military should not become a big transsexual transition operation.  If gays want to serve, serve, but if a boy who wants to become a woman joins the military for the sole purpose of the taxpayers footing the bill for their transition, that simply must stop.  I don’t think the Chinese or the Russians- or anyone else- is permitting this to happen in their countries- maybe it’s time for them to conquer our country and cleanse society of its less desirable elements.

Let me know what you think.  We will pick back up tomorrow.

[i] And Democrats love and will normalize anyone or anything to latch onto it.  After all, 8-9 years ago, no one thought we’d have same sex marriage in all four corners of the Union now did we.  Thanks, Obama.  

[ii] Crazily enough, the Democrats do not care if we rely on foreign nations for our food supply in the same way we once again will rely on them to provide us our energy supply.  Not only is it stupid, it’s also suicidal. 

[iii] Chem trails occur in the skies overhead so often that very few people even notice them anymore but one simply must inquire as to what the f**k, who the f**k, and why the f**k, they’re doing it.  It is downright disturbing that very few people ask questions about this seemingly ongoing mystery.  Perhaps, one day someone will and when they do, we won’t like the answers we hear.

Zaid Esq. put out a tweet in which he said: #coup has started.  First of many steps.  #rebellion.  #impeachment will follow ultimately.  #lawyers.  Folks, this POFS should be arrested and charged with treason and sent to Leavenworth to break boulders into gravel for the rest of his life.  Elsewhere, in Canada law enforcement officers arrest a French-Canadian student for the shooting the previous day that killed six and wounded five others.  He is charged with the crime.
  53. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump delivers his first State of the Union Address to the 115th Congress.  It’s a great speech but critics slam it for being dark, depressing, and un-American.  House Speaker Paul Ryan sits behind him smirking, knowing that he’s going to leave office.

  55. 2020 Thursday: The question and answer phase in the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump continues as Adam Schiff continues lying and lying.  He claims he does not know the alleged ‘whistleblower,’ Eric C., who spent time on the National Security Council with another man- Shawn Misko- who happens to have gone to work for the House Intel Committee chairman AFTER the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky occurred.  We are expected to believe this…what a load.   Elsewhere, as cases of the Chinese Virus continue skyrocketing, the Chi-Coms’ lackey Dr. Tedros at the World Health Organization declares a ‘global emergency,’ something that does not occur all that often.  It is what it is.  Thank you, communist China, thank you.
  56. 2021 Saturday: DAY ELEVEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- after the first 10 days, President Joe Biden has signed 40 executive orders and memorandums.  Next, the Department of Justice rolls back on Trump administration policies regarding crime and sentencing.  Could it be President Biden is returning to his old ways and seeking to send minorities to prison for longer terms?  That would surprise NO one around here.  Meanwhile, Texas Congressman Chip Roy urges Rep. Sandy Cortez to apologize to Senator Ted Cruz whom she was whining ‘tried to kill her’ on January 6.  Dingbat.   Elsewhere, Ohio lawmakers seek to make June 14 to be “Donald John Trump Day.”  We like that.  Finally, Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene- under assault by multitudes of rabid liberals- says she will ‘NEVER stop fighting for America First Patriots.’  God bless you, congresswoman.  Speaking of Rep. Greene, Democratic-Socialist firebrand Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar says, ‘Greene MUST BE REMOVED from Congress so she will feel safer.’  How about this- how about you returning to Somalia and STFU?  That would work for millions of Americans.   Next, regarding Muslims, President Biden says he’s going to move to shield thousands of Syrian ‘refugees’ from being deported back to their home country.
  57. 2021 Saturday A: Elsewhere, as COVID-19 funds dry up, American Airlines warn thousands of workers that ‘furloughs are coming.’  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, investigators are onsite in Wuhan, China, trying to determine where exactly the coronavirus pandemic began and how it began.   Meanwhile, France says it’s not going to implement a third COVID-19 lockdown.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, farmers in India are going on a hunger strike after clashing with law enforcement during protests.  In order to counter this grassroots anger, New Delhi has limited internet usage.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security orders ICE and Border Patrol officers NO longer to use the term ‘illegal aliens’ in either their speech or in official documents but to use the euphemism ‘undocumented migrant.’  Oooh, touchy-feelie, we like that.  Makes you feel warm and snug all over now doesn’t it…
  58. 2021 Saturday B: The South Carolina GOP censures Congressman Tom Rice over his vote to impeach President Donald J. Trump.  We smell a primary challenger coming next year.  Next, following the Annual March for Life, pro-life demonstrators are calling on lawmakers to pass more pro-life legislation.  We hope they do.  Next, the RNC plans on inviting President Donald J. Trump to its spring donor retreat.   Speaking of the GOP, it plans on meeting with Joe Biden to discuss his appalling lack of concern for the loss of hundreds of thousands of blue collar, union, energy sector jobs.  We mean, WTF, Joe?  Finally, lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are arguing over making fencing around the Capitol Building permanent.  This is crazy,  there is no threat yet Democrats seek to perpetuate the FALSE NOTION that threat exists for lawmakers and staffers.  We must vote this scum out of office ASAP. 
  59. 2021 Saturday C: Senator Rand Paul slams the idea of COVID-19 testing for all domestic airlines flights.  We concur, it’s unnecessary and stupid as we know the chance of catching the virus on an airliner is less than catching it in a restaurant which is extremely LOW.  Yet, elected Democrats and Deep State apparatchiks continue feeding us this dope.  Simultaneously, the CDC orders that anyone aboard public transportation must- guess what- wear a flipping facemask.  Goofy.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, a case of the South African variant has been discovered in Maryland.   Next, the warden at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, the place where big Democrat donor and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein most likely was murdered to keep him silent, is retiring.  Elsewhere, we learn today that the top ISIS leader in Iraq was killed in a U.S. airstrike.  Finally, Facebook is hiring a ‘compliance officer’ amid ‘security concerns.’
  60. 2021 Saturday D: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,403,247 confirmed cases, +421,801, 2,214,613, confirmed deaths, +10,917, and 56,654,869 confirmed recoveries, +292,859.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,283,491 confirmed cases, up 127,099 from yesterday’s reporting, 443,929 confirmed deaths, UP 2,649, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden.    
  61. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,291,137 confirmed cases, 40,216 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 407 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 314,033 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: U.S. Virgin Islands: currently, they have 2,398 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, but 2,283 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 633,991 confirmed cases, 4,700 confirmed deaths, and 558,249 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Saturday F: An 11-alarm fire in Passaic, New Jersey, at a recycling center is raging away.  Firefighters from more than 20 firehouses are on site battling the blaze that erupted yesterday.  The center is one of the biggest employers in the city and it appears they may not be able to save it.  Meanwhile, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets in Lansing, Michigan, demanding that high school sports be restored but Democrat crackpot Governor Gretchen Whitmer won’t permit it being the out-of-control authoritarian that she is.  Keep fighting people, fight to keep your rights.
  63. 2021 Saturday G: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  Let’s see some winners!  How soon before Democratic-Socialists demand that lottery winners hand over 90-percent of their winnings so the Dems can then redistribute them to their beloved illegal aliens?  Don’t laugh- these people are scumbags and they’ve never seen a dollar they didn’t want to redistribute to someone undeserving of it. Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3530 with $16 million on the line: 01, 06, 13, 19, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 113,780 winning tickets, FIVE people had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $7,636 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) 7/11 in Roseville, CA 95661; (2) Circle K in Irvine, CA 92606; (3) Power Market in Pittsburgh, CA 94565; (4) 7/11 in Westminster, CA 92683; and (5) 7/11 in Pleasant Hill, CA 94523.  Next here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #816 with a $30 million jackpot on the line: 01,02, 07, 52, 61, and Powerball 04.  Out of 55,699 winning tickets, the highest winners were 38 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $390 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Michael Schenker Group returned on September 15, 1983, with another heavy duty rock album, “Built to Destroy.”  Graham Bonnet was gone and Gary Barden was back on vocals.  Otherwise, the lineup was mostly the same with guitarist Schenker, Chris Glen (bass), Ted McKenna (drums/percussion), with newcomer Andy Nye on keyboards.  Like UFO, the times they were a-changing what with the 1980s becoming more techno-pop-oriented and some bands had challenging times trying to keep up with the groove.  Still, we love this album and are sure that you will, too, which is why we are promoting it to all the fans of the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day.  Please, check it out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

  52. 2017 Wednesday: President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans unveiled the first major revamp of the nation’s tax code in a generation, a plan that included deep tax cuts for corporations, simplified tax brackets and a near doubling of the standard deduction.  So far, the tax cuts have proven successful and millions of Americans around the country have benefitted greatly from them.  Meanwhile, the scientific journal “Nature” publishes an article on the giant tree-dwelling rat of the Solomon Islands, the ‘Vika,’ an animal capable of cracking open coconuts.  Folks, everything grows bigger in the Tropics.
  53. 2018 Thursday: In the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, the accuser of Brett Kavanaugh- Dr. Christine Blasey Ford- sat before the committee members and laid out her allegations against Judge Kavanaugh with little emotion or credibility although the Democrats circled all around her proclaiming her to be a fantastic witness.  Then, when Judge Kavanaugh sat before them, he lambasted the Democrats on the committee for making it all about politics and for destroying his family.  In the end, the Judge appeared to be far more credible and produced evidence identifying his whereabouts on any given day.  The Democrats are causing problems once again and carried their attacks on the Judge to the next day during a committee vote to move the nomination to the full Senate.  Elsewhere, famed vocalist with the Jefferson Airplane[iv] and Jefferson Starship- Marty Balin- died on this date.

  56. 2020 Sunday A: The United Nations announces that the Houthi rebels and the Saudi-led coalition of anti-Iranian scumbags will conduct a prisoner swap of 1,000 or more prisoners.   There is hope that peace may be achieved and soon.  We suspect that as more Arab and Muslim nations begin recognizing the right of Israel to exist, the Iranian hegemony will begin to dwindle.  Meanwhile, Armenia and Azerbaijan engage in some border scuffles resulting in the loss of military vehicles and aircraft.    Finally, at the White House, President Donald J. Trump addresses reporters and asks the assembled hostile throng as to ‘WHY no one wants to know about the corruption of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his son, Hunter, when it comes to harvesting hundreds of millions of dollars from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and other leftist-Marxist global actors.’  News Media: HOW COME you don’t ask these questions?  Why did Hunter Biden receive $3.5 million from the wife of Moscow, Russia’s mayor?  For what?  His boudoir services- wow.
