  73. 2021 Monday: Day 34 of the BIDEN REGIME.  Joe Biden extends mortgage relief protections through June harming landlords and mortgage companies.  The question is, when things return to ‘normal,’ will the people being aided by the government be able to catch their rents/mortgages up?   Next, Joe Biden eliminates President Donald J. Trump’s citizenship test for illegal fence-jumpers and river-swimmers.  Speaking of illegal aliens, ICE reports that illegal aliens are getting their Chi-Vi vaccines ahead of U.S. citizens.  Representative Debbie Lesko, R-AZ, is upset about this, saying that seniors call her office every day to discover when they will be able to receive their vaccines.  Nope, we must immunize illegal aliens and felons first.  Another Arizona lawmaker, Congressman Andy Biggs, Republican, says there is ‘an explosion of unaccompanied illegal alien minors at the border.’  We encourage laying in of minefields. 
  74. 2021 Monday A: As Joe Biden nominee confirmations continue, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says she WON’T vote to confirm OMB nominee Neera Tanden for hateful attacks on Republicans.  Meanwhile, Judge Merrick Garland, Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney-general is shagging questions today in the U.S. Senate.  He claims that ‘politics won’t influence or affect criminal probes into scumbags such as Hunter Biden.’  We shall see.   Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Judge Garland for not labeling James Comey as a ‘TERRIBLE’ FBI director.  Next, the White House calls for a ‘moment of silence’ (what a load of festering fecal matter) over hitting the dubious benchmark of more than half-a-million deaths.  (Please see our ‘VID statistics later today so you can see just how many people have succumbed to the Wuhan Virus Crisis while Joe Biden’s been in the White House.  It’s a whole lot, folks…).  Finally, New Jersey’s governor signs a bill establishing the framework for legal pakalolo in his state.
  75. 2021 Monday B: Chi-Com news- Researchers conclude that the Chi-Coms copied NSA spyware code which should surprise NO one.  In other SHOCKING NEWS, the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology is going to continue receiving U.S. taxpayers’ dollars for continued research into bat viruses and other evil stuff.  WHY are we funding the Chi-Com research, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, especially when they are the ones who caused the global pandemic, whether through ineptitude or on purpose?  What’s more, we should be doing our own biowarfare research, not giving the Chi-Coms our money.  Someone, please impeach and remove Joe Biden NOW.  In other Chi-Com-related news, Representative Bill Johnson says, ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies show weakness on the Chi-Coms human rights abuses.’  After all, ‘Pro-China Joe’ shut the Keystone XL pipeline down on Day No. 1 so that oil will be flowing west from Canada’s coast to mainland China.  Finally, the Chi-Coms are urging their stooge in the White House to lift all trade sanctions and tariffs and to show Beijing some ‘goodwill.’  F**k Beijing.
  76. 2021 Monday C: The Roberts Supreme Court continues to show it’s in league with the Washington, D.C. swamp when Roberts says, ‘it’s okay for New York prosecutors to get their grubby hands on Donald J. Trump’s tax records as far back as 2011.  We also hear that Associate Justice Clarence Thomas blasted Roberts and other liberal justices for their unwillingness to hear cases related to the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election.   SCOTUS could also hear cases on various states’ new laws restricting abortion rights within their borders.  We know how John Roberts will rule now don’t we? 
  77. 2021 Monday D: Corrupt (allegedly) Dominion Voting Systems is suing My Pillow’s Mike Lindell for his blowing the lid off the can regarding Dominion’s and associated company, Smartmatic’s hand in STEALING the 2020 Presidential Election as well as various other elections around the country.   Elsewhere, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she’s whose face droops down on one side, is funneling $300,000 to help gerrymandering efforts after condemning Republicans for gerrymandering districts in Red States.  Say it ain’t so, Nancy!
  78. 2021 Monday E: The Harris administration, uh, the ‘Biden administration’ is downplaying the rhetoric on Iran, hoping the Iranians will return to the flawed JCPOA- the Iran nuclear ‘deal.’  Speaking of the Iranians, the head of the IAEA says Iran is ‘going to limit access to its nuclear programs.’  Hmmm, why would this be?  Speaking of Iran, eight rockets were fired at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone today.   Also speaking of Iran, U.S. families of detained Americans in that hellish, pro-jihad country are begging the ‘Biden administration’ to do something to get their family members home.  Come on, Joe, do something about getting these people repatriated to the U.S.
  79. 2021 Monday F: An NBC poll shows- much to their horror- that blue collar workers of all colors flocked to President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, when he gives the keynote address at CPAC this week, with a ‘show of force,’ he’s going to place his grip onto the GOP.  The Grand Old Party is Trump’s party and we look forward to seeing “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell’s RINO picks fall in one election after another.  McConnell must be impeached and removed from office.   In other news, a high school senior in New York City is battling the Di Blasio Regime over its closure of Trump Corporation-operated ice skating rinks.  In other news, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, aka “BoJo,” says that all UK schools should be reopened by March 8.  Excellent.  IF only U.S. educators would follow suit.
  80. 2021 Monday G: The United States Marine Corps is going to substitute ‘board games’ for its upcoming March military drills so as to create ‘smart infantry.’  Sounds like a load of bull crap to us, a stinking load of bull crap.  Meanwhile, 170 of 254 counties in Texas are struggling with winter-related storms and power outages- fresh water is difficult by which to come.  Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer blames Texas for what’s happened to it saying they chose to go alone on energy and now they must sleep in the bed they made.’  Good, Chuck, good.  What a POS.  In other news, the family of slain Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X (allegedly, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan is the man who ordered the hit) wants the case reopened so the law can find and punish his murderers.  Go find Reverend Louie and ask HIM.   Elsewhere, United Airlines is pulling 24 of it Boeing 777 airliners out of use to double check the engines.   Finally, Joe Biden says smaller firms will have exclusive PPP access over the next two weeks.
  81. 2021 Monday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,434,139 confirmed cases, +165,977, 2,467,481 confirmed deaths, +3,462, and 62,896,305 confirmed recoveries, +149,843.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,409,269 confirmed cases, up 84,306 from yesterday’s reporting, 504,012 confirmed deaths, UP 1,519, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than four weeks- what’s up with that? NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 174,411 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S. which means, you have more than half of what Trump had from the beginning of the outbreak which means you are a failure like Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  82. 2021 Monday I: 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: 3,531,979 confirmed cases, 49,380 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,950 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Louisiana: currently, they have 426,644 confirmed cases, 9,477 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 750,043 confirmed cases, 5,577 confirmed deaths, and 704,018 confirmed recoveries.   
  83. 2021 Monday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,521.69, UP 27.37 points (+0.087%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,533.05, DOWN 341.42 points (-2.46%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,876.50, DOWN 30.21 points (-0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,809.10 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $28.21 per troy ounce, +0.13 (+0.45%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,283.10 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $4.15 per pound, +0.01 (+0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,402.90 per troy oz, +23.10 (+0.97%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.19 per barrel, +0.49 (+0.79%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.73.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.
  84. 2021 Monday K: Following an Australian news anchor pointing out the obvious- that the ‘leader of the Free World (Joe Biden) seems to be cognitively disabled,’ Facebook bans Australian citizens from using its platform.  WTF?  Everyone knows that ‘Pro-China Joe’ is not there.  He demonstrates it every day and the fact that Kamala Harris is making phone calls to foreign leaders should worry the hell out of everyone.  Not only is the woman easily bought, but she’s also not that bright so the American people must begin demanding an accounting of what the Democrats did during the 2020 Presidential Election.   Meanwhile, the National Spelling Bee will return but in a mostly virtual format.  Elsewhere, the liberal mainstream media is going after Newsmax, One America News, and Fox News.  They cannot stand for free flowing speech.

Meanwhile, the Luftwaffe’s fight to bring supplies into Stalingrad continues losing planes to AA fire as well as Red Air Force fighter planes. Still, the airlift continues.

Climate Change Conference, nearly 200 nations join in signing an emissions reduction accord that requires them to post their plans online, which will allow the ‘public’ to pressure non-compliant nations to keep and to strengthen their commitments.  What a load of crap, Global Warming-Climate Change is a bullshit science. 
  56. 2015 Monday:  As all hell continues breaking loose in Syria, President Barack Hussein Obama says, “We are hitting ISIL harder than ever.”  Yeah, right.  Meanwhile, as ongoing U.S. airstrikes in the s-hole nation of Yemen continue, killing at least 19 civilians in the recent attacks, peace talks between the Yemeni government, Houthi rebels, and other interested parties in the region commence.
  57. 2016 Wednesday: Following reports of an ‘enemies list’ at the U.S. Department of Energy goes viral and ginned up outrage explodes around the country the Trump transition teams distances itself from the incendiary report.  Look, if there are loads of Greens in there, throw them out.  Meanwhile, as the Obama administration’s ‘Trump-Russia collusion bogus scandal’ gets underway, leaked reports claim that incoming National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Ret. ‘shared classified information with British and Australian officials (who we will learn in 2020 were in on the plot).
  58. 2017 Thursday: The Federal Communications Commission votes 3-2 to repeal the Net Neutrality rules imposed by the Obama administration.  Meanwhile, as budget talks continue, the Republicans are worried they might have defections on their side of the aisle.   Speaking of Republicans, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-WI, is considering retirement at the end of the year.  Elsewhere, in Mogadishu, Somalia, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again as a suicide bomber kills at least 18 police trainees at a parade honoring them.
  59. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump names OMB Director and acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mick Mulvaney as his next chief of staff.   Mulvaney will replace retired Gen.

  60. 2019 Saturday: The old sitcom, “The Beverly Hillbillies” mansion in Bel Air, California, goes on sale and fetches $150 million becoming one of the Golden State’s most expensive properties.  Meanwhile, as the impeachment of Donald Trump gathers steam, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says, “I’m not trying to be a fair juror here” and opines that the ‘impeachment bill will die a quick death.’  Elsewhere, Louisiana State University QB Joe Burrow wins the 85th Annual Heisman Trophy Award.
  61. 2020 Monday:  Electors across the country meet today to determine who will carry the state’s presidential and vice-presidential votes to Washington, D.C. for the final Electoral College vote next month.  Republicans in battleground states plan to send alternative electors to represent them seeing as how several states had corrupt elections conducted by equally corrupt machines and election staff. White House advisor Stephen Miller says ‘alternative electors is the way to go.’  We shall see what we shall see.  When the Electoral College meets, we expect to see Biden 306 and Trump 232 in the count.  Yes, the Dems and their Chi-Com masters STOLE this election.
  62. 2020 Monday A: Anyhow, as President Donald J. Trump and his followers continue saying, “It’s not over,” most people are coming to the conclusion that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the next ‘president-elect.’  Meanwhile, as Georgians prepare to vote in January’s run-off elections, far-left-wing racist bigot (and shadow governor) Stacey Abrams reports she has 1.2 million absentee voters ready to go while currently, hundreds of citizens of the Peach State are already lining up to early-vote.  Folks, the Senate is lost.  Elsewhere, Michigan conducts a forensic audit of Canada’s Dominion Voting Systems machines and discovers what should be a disqualifying factor in throwing out the entire vote in that state: the allowable error in the machines is supposed to be NO MORE than .0008% but in the machines used, the error rate was a shocking 68%.  This means the entire election is fraudulent and should be tossed.
  63. 2020 Monday B: The Wall Street Journal reports that the “Trump challenge is over.”  In the same vein, U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr says his boss is like a ‘deposed king ranting.’  Then, he resigned his office and said he will be gone before Christmas.  Loyalty.  One must admire it.  Speaking of ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden, we hear today that failed Midwestern former mayor and failed presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg heads the list to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.  Hell, Joe, why didn’t you appoint him your next U.S. ambassador to Iran (when you reopen our embassy there)?  Meanwhile, the ‘president-elect’ tells his supporters to stop with the calls for ‘defunding the police’ as it is costing them the support of the American people.
  64. 2020 Monday C: On the international front, we learn that the Chi-Coms have at least 2 million spies, honeypots, and intelligence agents inserted into governments, universities, corporations, and who knows?  Maybe even here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Time to begin finding and removing these skunks like California Congressman Eric Swalwell, Democrat.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump says that it’s concerns about them that will cause him to veto the Defense Department spending bill soon to come to his desk.   Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘Chi-Coms are the number one security threat to the United States.’  Watch “Pro-China Joe” welcome them to the White House along with Vladimir Putin and other thugs who want to destroy our country.  Elsewhere, Russian hackers breach the U.S. Treasury and Commerce Departments.  Not good.   We also learn that YouTube, Gmail, and Google were hit by some sort of outage which could be the Russkies, too.
  65. 2020 Monday D: In New York City, law enforcement offers a reward of $60,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the scumbag(s) responsible for the death of one-year-old toddler Carmelo Duncan who was hit by a stray round.   Meanwhile, we learn that last night’s attack on a cathedral in New York City was caused by what appears to have been a terrorist of some kind.
  66. 2020 Monday E: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges passage of the $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill but no movement is in sight as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi seems to be in no mood for helping ANY American with financial aid, ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS.  The Chi-Vi economic toll affects both RED and BLUE states equally, yet very few want to help the American people.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, vaccinations in the U.S. are underway.  Note of interest: the ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, noted left-wing loser was caught in a luxury building NOT WEARING A MASK.  Send the POS to the gulag.
  67. 2020 Monday F: Some nitwit asked former Vice President (and current Green Meanie) Al Gore had any regrets about conceding to George W. Bush to which, he said, “NO.”  Took you long enough, Al.  Meanwhile, adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Dick Morris, told John Bachman of Newsmax that the Democrats ‘pre-emptively put the fear of God into the U.S. Supreme Court with all this talk of court-packing.’  We always knew Chief Justice John Roberts was a coward.  Elsewhere, My Pillow guy Mike Lindell says “Fox News had to be in on it” meaning how the Democrats STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election from Trump and gave it to Biden.  Speaking of President Trump, he is appointing as many of his allies to various federal posts that incoming Biden-Harris administration won’t be able to topple or overturn.
  68. 2020 Monday G: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 72,221,634 confirmed cases, +571,758, 1,612,014, confirmed deaths, +7,498, and 47,218,235 confirmed recoveries, +406,451.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 16,477,271 confirmed cases, up 155,120 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,141 confirmed deaths, UP 1,243, and 7,478,028 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,127.
  69. 2020 Monday 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: 1,600,338 confirmed cases, 21,054 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,512 confirmed cases, 274 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 209,442 confirmed cases, 3,047 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Vermont, currently, they have 5,857 confirmed cases, 96 confirmed deaths, and 3,603 confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 359,070 confirmed cases, 3,004 confirmed deaths, and 338,321 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Columbia: they have 1,425,774 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 39,043 confirmed deaths and 1,335,517 confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Monday I: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,861.55, DOWN 184.82 points (-0.62%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,440.04, UP 62.17 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,647.49, DOWN 57.97 points (-0.44%).  Price of GOLD: $1,831.60 per troy oz., -0.50 (-0.03%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.98 per troy oz., -0.067 (-0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,018.60 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.12%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,318.90 per troy oz., -14.20 (-0.61%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.52 per #, -0.0115 (-0.37%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.95, -0.04 (-0.09%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.94 Afghan Afghani.
  71. 2020 Monday J: Sports News- the Cleveland Indians announce they are going to change their name to something ‘less offensive.’  Nothing wrong with the name, maybe they just need to change the logo of Chief Wahoo.   As far as sports teams with Native American names left, we have the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, the MLB’s Atlanta Braves, and the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks.  The last one said there’s NO way they are going to change their name.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, we have Monday Night Football’s game tonight: (16) Baltimore Ravens, 47 (8-5) @ Cleveland Browns, 42 (9-4) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.
  72. 2020 Monday K: Final news of the evening- murder rates double in the city of Chicago.  Democrats in control, NO WONDER.  Shame on you, Mayor Lori “Space Alien” Lightfoot.  Elsewhere, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka “The Fly,” ‘thinks she is living in another country and not the United States.’  We wish she would return to whatever s-hole country from which, she came. Meanwhile, a U.S. Court of Appeals questions the Department of Justice’s drive to ban TikTok, the Chi-Com-intelligence-gathering ap.  Next, President Donald J. Trump appoints Roy Bernardi to the USPS Board of Governors.  Finally, Co-Chair of the RNC Tommie Hicks tells Newsmax that ‘the American people deserve answers on the Mueller probe.’  
  73. 2020 Monday L: Final news of the evening Pt. 2: Michigan Republican Congressman Paul Mitchell quits the GOP because of ‘Donald Trump.’  Meanwhile, the Trump administration removes Sudan from the state-sponsored terror list.   Speaking of terrorist states, the U.S. places new sanctions on Iranian and Turkish thugs involved in terrorism around the globe.  They believe individuals from Iran abducted former FBI agent Bob Levinson and spirited him to Iran.  The sanctions placed on Turkey result from their buying of Russian weapons systems.  We say, “Boot Turkey out of NATO.  Now.”
  74. 2020 Monday M:  We encourage everyone to stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and their Democratic Party dupes in the United States are up to today.  You know it’s going to be good…

ENDNOTES:


[i] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of this wild Australian band but you can rest assured that whenever we present Black Sabbath, we will follow them with AC/DC.

[ii] In about five years, we expect to spend a year or two covering the music of Motown and of other classic soul bands so please stay tuned for additional information.  We thank you.

[iii] When we do a couple of years of classic soul and Motown bands, the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson will be included among them.

[iv] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt..  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

[vi] Once again, clear evidence of a malevolent Deep State exists here as the Intel Community swore up and down that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.  That was the entire purpose behind invading Iraq and toppling the scumbag Hussein but in the end loads of people died during and after the U.S.-led invasion, something President Donald J. Trump is trying to correct in 2019.

National Socialism, Fascism, Socialism, and Communism are all part of the same Marxist-Engels patchwork quilt of evil leftist ideologies and I should know: I was born in 1940 in Greece

As someone whose first four-plus years in life were under Nazi occupation in my native Greece and then a few other years in the crossfire of civil war between communists and royalists , I understand what ‘socialism’ is: it’s not democracy but totalitarianism. Nazis, Fascists, and Socialists-Communists all share one in thing in common: socialism, as formulated by Marx and Engels, although each offshoot of the poisonous stink tree has its own foundational principles.

Maybe moving back to Greece might be the way to go…

Century City, CA 90067, 06-22-2020 Monday:  Greetings once again, my friends, it is good to be back.  Unlike my fellow chef-bloggers here at the World-Famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, now, the AICPENDBLOG.COM at WordPress.com, I am not going to bash Google or Google Blogger for having shredded our two blogs on their site because why bother?  Everyone knows that Sundar Pichai[i], Google CEO, is a tool of the Chinese Communist Party, that he probably drops to his knees in front of Xi Jinping several times a year and does the…well, you get the idea…so Google can do business in the authoritarian country that sent the COVID-19 virus around the globe[ii].

Right now, we are involved in fighting a major culture war, one that either upholds the Constitution and other founding documents of this nation or will see them run through a diamond-cut paper shredder and then a totalitarian piece of crap document inserted into its place.  This is why there is such an ongoing drive to tear down statues across the nation, not just of CSA war heroes and political leaders[iii] but of Christopher Columbus, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington.

You name it, these ‘protesters’ fighting for ‘the rights of black folks’ and other minorities do not really give a flying fig riding a grape leaf about blacks and other so-called marginalized groups but only uses them and other like them as a tool to the ultimate goal: a communist takeover of the United States.

As someone whose first four-plus years in life were under Nazi occupation in my native Greece and then a few other years in the crossfire of civil war between communists and royalists[iv], I understand what ‘socialism’ is: it’s not democracy but totalitarianism.  Nazis, Fascists, and Socialists-Communists all share one in thing in common: socialism, as formulated by Marx and Engels, although each offshoot of the poisonous stink tree has its own foundational principles.

The ’socialism’ of the Third Reich was one based upon race, most notably that ‘Germans of Aryan stock were racially superior to everyone else’ and that being the master race allowed them to achieve dominion over the rest of the world and to do with those who fell into their net whatever they wanted.

Fascism is somewhat different in that it was not race-based but more economic in nature, much like how the Nazis ran their government.  In both situations, private ownership of property and business was allowed such as corporations were, all they needed to do to remain in favor of the leadership was to do as commanded by government.

Hence, during World War II, the Nazi government needs Porsche to switch over from making race cars to military tanks, half-tracks, trucks, and planes, then so be it, they did it.  Otherwise, the corrupt Nazi hierarchy could institute changes in ownership of an uncooperative company while leaving it initially intact.

Socialism and communism are based upon class struggle, that the proletarians are the true owners of all business and not the capitalists who take risks, supply capital, purchase equipment, and then hire and employ workers.  Both deviations believe that working men-and-women are the ones with power (although the government is the real powerholder as well as property-and-landowner) and that ALL rights come from government and not from God as we so ‘asininely’ believe here in the United States.

For any of these foul political movements to succeed, they require a complete takeover of everything from government to media to military to police to culture.  Currently, we find ourselves engaged in a culture war, one in which, the rabid mob of leftist filth roving the streets must break down every facet of society and then replace it with whatever they deem to be acceptable.

That’s why Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other militant socialist-communist groups are doing everything they can as quickly as they can because they know pushback will be coming soon.

We witnessed this same upheaval during the last few years of the Obama administration, turmoil that occurred over police shootings committed by white cops on black men, just as we have throughout the past couple of months.

The Marxists have no trouble demanding we refrain from reopening our businesses[v] due to the Chinese Virus but equally have no problem allowing rioters (uh, I mean, peaceful protesters) in massive numbers to assault ordinary Americans and to attack law enforcement, all in the names of George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, and others.

Maybe moving back home to Greece might be the answer?

See you tomorrow.

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.

#THG0001.2b Greek Orthodox #1 06-16-2019 (400)

 

[i] We are among many groups who have complained LOUDLY to our representatives in Congress and the Senate.  Even though we have two horrible Democrat senators in California, Dianne Feinstein, and Kamala Harris, we have sent our complaints to GOP House leaders as well as to various GOP senators demanding a fair shake from Google.  The SOBS sell us our domain names but have placed us behind an interstitial for at least seven years so no one can see us unless they are able to navigate through the barriers erected by the people who allow us to have blogs.  We have had the two Google Blogger blogs, one since 2010 and the other since 2014 and it is highly unethical for someone willing to allow you to have a blog then prevent it from being seen.

[ii] I realize for many that bringing up the fact that the COVID-19 virus, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Chinese Virus, etc. makes one ‘racist,’ I could give a f**k.  Here is what I say: anyone who CANNOT admit the truth, that the virus originated in China and most likely was created through biowarfare experimentation and then ‘allowed’ to escape is a fool, a plain ignorant fool and should shut the hell up.  I am done with stupid.

[iii] As someone who came to this country, I learned REAL U.S. history when I did and even though people fought on the side of the South, they were still Americans.  They fought for what they believed and many of them died for it and in the end they lost.  Now, these Marxist goobers

[iv] Thank God for Britain.  Were it not for the British fighting to maintain our government and protect our people, we most likely would have been the final Balkan nation under the yoke of communism following the end of World War II.

[v] Although I am sorry about the deaths of these black men and others like them, the violent protests and looting and rioting have demonstrated how seriously our Democrat leaders here in Los Angeles and across the state take the Wuhan Flu- not much.  Eric Garcetti says we can’t reopen our businesses but if you want to loot, riot, and burn (poor Santa Monica, my God!), that is perfectly fine so go for it.  Yes, COVID-19 is bad for some specific groups but for most Americans, we should be able to resume normal life which is what my family and I are doing.  We are reopening like some of our colleagues did up in Bakersfield more than a month ago, in the style of a speakeasy.  If law enforcement shows up, we will deal with them then.  I can tell you Garcetti is going to lose his mayoral seat either by election results or via recall.  This guy is as stupid as the slut-bag in Michigan, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.  Liberals, you have shown your true colors: RED!
