  53. 2008 Friday: The price of crude oil hits an astounding $125.98 per barrel.  This is not good for the economies of the world.  Meanwhile, Hezbollah continues a powerplay in Lebanon in general and in Beirut in particular as they continue battling with government forces.

  55. 2010 Sunday: Somali pirates take to the high seas once again and capture a German oil tanker plying the waters off East Africa.  Seems like it’s getting about time to go in there and crucify these scumbags the way Caesar did pirates in the Mediterranean when he was a young man.  How about the modern equivalent?  Let’s use neutron bombs on these bastards.
  56. 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad.  (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge).  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.  A decade from now, they will be surpassing us.

  59. 2014 Friday: For the first time since annexing the Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin visits the region on the holiday commemorating the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.  Who will stop this murderous POS?  Meanwhile, the South Korean military announces that three drones that penetrated its airspace came from North Korea.

Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House.  Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup.  We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime.  Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.

  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries.   Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?  
  66. 2020 Saturday A: In Tullahoma, Oklahoma, famed rock-and-roller, Little Richard, died at age 87.  Little Richard[vi] was famous for so many songs but “Lucille,” “Tutti-Frutti,” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly” are the ones that leap out.  Check him out.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys are one of those American success stories, one that NO one at the time had any idea as how far it would go.  Dennis Wilson loved surfing and brought that love of riding the waves home with him.  Brother Brian- inspired by his brother started writing tunes.  A talented, musical family, Brian played bass, piano, and sang while older brother Dennis played drums and could sing.  Youngest brother Carl could play guitar, and their sad started seeing money signs although he was abusive as hell and put them down every opportunity he had.  Mike Love joined his cousins on vocals while neighbor David Marks joined on rhythm guitar and vocals.  Brian could hear all the harmonies in his head and soon the group began to form and chose the name, ‘the Beach Boys.’  Their first album, “Surfin’ Safari” came out on October 01, 1962, and it set the world on fire.  One of the oldest American rock groups, the Beach Boys touched off the California sun and surf craze.  The songs were pretty simple but hey, it was the early 1960s, the Vietnam War was not yet in motion, anything was possible and so it was.  Thus, we have some classic tunes on this album, “Surfin’ Safari,” “409,” and “Surfin’.”  Great music if there ever was which set the world ablaze and put the members of the band on one of the all-time crazy roller-coaster rides.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  You will be glad you did.

Every day, the truth about the Obama Gang continues coming to light; I hope by the time we ascertain everything about their attempted coup, we will see them on trial for treason

This is WHY I hope that when the entire history is out and before us, out there in the benevolent rays of the powerful Sun, we will see brave men and women step up who will write the history of this depressingly dark time. Moreover, I hope that Hollywood will finally wise up and make a movie for the silver screen just as the lefties did back in the 1970s when Warner Bros. released “All the President’s Men,” their ‘exposure’ of the evil Richard M. Nixon.

SPRING SESSION 2020

 

BLOG POST #3,482 AT THE AICP-END

 

177 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

I will elbow my way into the courtroom to see James Comey sentenced to life in federal supermax prison for the crime of treason…

Oildale, CA 93308, 05-13-2020 Wednesday: Interesting to note is this: over the past weekend and into Monday, there was and still is a news story about former acting Attorney-General Sally Yates, the woman who defied President Trump over his first travel ban (as well as a subsequent one, I believe) against Muslims from terrorist hotspots around the globe. Ms. Yates said she had no knowledge about the case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn[i] or that President Barack Hussein Obama, her idol, was in the coup plot up to his ears.

Yes, indeed, President Obama was conniving with then-FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey, his Igor-like buddy, Andy McCabe, former FBI agents Peter Strzok and his 2:00 A.M. booty call babe, Lisa Page, as well as with other ‘big dogs’ in his administration like Vice President Joe Biden. They were scheming to destroy Donald J. Trump and sadly, got pretty doggone close to accomplishing their repugnant goal before being exposed for the scumbags they are.

We should all be grateful that President Trump eventually found a group to support and defend him because had he said, “Oi, vie!,” and bailed out early on in his administration, the amount of corruption, malevolence, and other dark goings-on might never have come to light; thankfully, they did which is why the world now knows about the ’administrative state’ or by its much more popular name, the Deep State.

This is WHY I hope that when the entire history is out and before us, out there in the benevolent rays of the powerful Sun, we will see brave men and women step up who will write the history of this depressingly dark time. Moreover, I hope that Hollywood will finally wise up and make a movie for the silver screen just as the lefties did back in the 1970s when Warner Bros. released “All the President’s Men,” their ‘exposure’ of the evil Richard M. Nixon.

Sad thing is, President Nixon did NOTHING compared to what the Obama Gang sought to do to President Trump and I hope to see them standing in the docket of the federal courts begging for mercy, for leniency, tears streaming down their pious faces.

Once convicted, we can march them off to the gallows where they will die a traitor’s death, each, and every one of these worthless schmoes.  As old as I am, I would fight to find a seat in the courtroom when that pompous horse’s ass James Comey receives his death sentence. Let’s see how haughty he is then.

As for the movie, it would start at the very top: with President Barack Obama. He brought in James Comey, head of the FBI, James Clapper, his DNI, John Brennan- a former communist[ii]– head of our Central Intelligence Agency.

What’s more, he brought in Attorney-General Loretta Lynch, his U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, he brought in hacks like Ben Rhodes and Bill Priestap and other bottom-feeding, pro-Chinese scum so they could concoct the plot to destroy Obama’s ‘Public Enemy Number One,” Donald John Trump, all because the billionaire demanded the 44th president present his REAL birth certificate and not the faux one he used for decades.

These dogs delegated the work to losers such as Peter Strzok, someone who reminds every woman of her worst former husband, boyfriend, or hookup, his bedtime beau, FBI lawyer Lisa Page (someone whom Strzok defined as ‘crazy’), and their contacts in the Hillary Clinton campaign including the Big Dog herself who funded the phony document used to target Mr. Trump.

These people in turn reached out to various foreign intelligence assets and agencies[iii] and brought in former MI6 ‘secret agent’ Christopher Steele who sought out help, not from Vladimir Putin as they claim the Trump campaign did, but from the dregs of the Ukraine, former communists seeking to overturn the newborn democracy so they could return it to Russian control.

I cannot wait to see justice meted out to each of these scoundrels. We must thank our lucky stars that we now have brave patriots hard at work digging up the real truth and sharing it with the entire world. God bless you and God bless the USA.

I will see you tomorrow.

IF Hollywood were honest, we would have a remake of “All the President’s Men,” only this one “All President Obama’s Men,” the coup to take down Donald Trump

IF we had a news media that was honest and not this corrupt, Democratic Party-pro-communist China house organ, the sequel to “All the President’s Men” in 2020 would be “All President Barack Hussein Obama’s Men.” What we continue learning about the coup he and members of his administration directed at candidate and now President Donald J. Trump would make a movie- if Hollywood were honest- that would pull in $70 billion or more because of the audacity of the coup plotters.

BLOG POST #3,481 AT THE AICP-END

 

178 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

 

What Obama tried to do to Trump dwarfs Richard M. Nixon and the Watergate ‘scandal’

Oildale, CA 93308, 05-12-2020 Tuesday: In 1976, Warner Bros. released the movie, “All the President’s Men,” starring Robert Redford as Bob Woodward and Dustin Hoffman as Carl Bernstein, the ‘legendary reporters’ who broke the Watergate ‘scandal’ wide open. If you were not alive in the 1970s, then you don’t remember this movie, which is fine because in my view, the movie is garbage. At the box office, it pulled in $70 million or more which at the time was amazingly big for a film, especially one about politics.

Although if you were not alive back then and did not know the movie, everyone generally has some knowledge of the Watergate ‘scandal,’ the one that brought down President Richard M. Nixon and forced him either to resign or to face impeachment and possible imprisonment (although we have never sent a former president to prison in the history of our country. That could all change if the Democrats win in November).

IF we had a news media that was honest and not this corrupt, Democratic Party-pro-communist China house organ, the sequel to “All the President’s Men” in 2020 would be “All President Barack Hussein Obama’s Men.” What we continue learning about the coup he and members of his administration directed at candidate and now President Donald J. Trump would make a movie- if Hollywood were honest- that would pull in $70 billion or more because of the audacity of the coup plotters.

As a former professor at the university level, I know my history whereas many younger folks most likely don’t thanks to generations indoctrinated by the U.S. elitist, leftist educational system. We have had presidents who have misused the tools of government to punish their enemies and to pursue political foes, most notably Presidents Woodrow Wilson and the pseudo-dictator Franklin Delano Roosevelt, BOTH notable Democrats.

President Wilson used the power of government to muzzle his critics, to silence his media and political foes just as he re-segregated not only the U.S. Civil Service but the U.S. military, too, something that prolonged the agony of the battle for equality and civil rights.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt used the IRS and the FBI to punish his enemies just as he used censorship to punish press critics. We also know he rounded up and interned the Japanese, even though it went against the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution. In so doing, most of the Japanese sent to camps during World War II lost their property, never to be reclaimed which, in effect, forced them to start from scratch once released.

What President Barack Obama did to defeat Donald Trump as a candidate and then as president beggars everything heretofore seen in the history of U.S. politics. He used the CIA, he used the FBI, he most likely has used likeminded liberal state tax collection agencies to pursue Trump wherever he lives or has business.

He allowed his bought-and-paid-for hacks like James Comey (FBI), John Brennan (CIA), Samantha Power (U.N. ambassador), Susan Rice (national security advisor), James Clapper (director of national intelligence), Loretta Lynch (attorney-general), and anyone else available to him- like fellow foreign intelligence agencies- to pursue various individuals around the president, hoping to corrupt or coopt them and then get them to LIE so they could bring down a duly-elected president.

We are going to revisit this theme tomorrow and who knows? Throughout much of the week because it is a story that should be shocking to not only the American people but to the entire world that has always believed the U.S. was above the corruption of other nations around the globe, particularly in the Third World or in communist nations. Americans just do not do this which is WHY I believe Barack Hussein Obama was NOT born in this country because Americans simply do not act like this.

Friends, between here and tomorrow, I would urge all of you to use your Amazon Fire Sticks and pull up “All the President’s Men,” watch it and see how liberals felt about a president who did one-tenth– or less!- of what Barack Hussein Obama and his flunkies did.

See you tomorrow. God save the United States!

JTF: My dad, a WW II and Korean Conflict veteran says that whether you like the president or you don’t, the president is the person the Constitution charges to set and carry out foreign policy. Period.

My dad is disturbed by the never-ending drive to remove President Trump from office. He expresses his dismay that a man in uniform- Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman would attempt to drive a shiv into the back of the commander-in-chief. As he says, the president and the president alone is in charge of foreign policy and that people in the diplomatic corps either carry out the president’s foreign policy or they step down, resign, and go away.

BLOG POST #3,298 AT THE AICP-END

 

360 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020

VETERANS DAY

 

My daddy refers to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman as a “REMF;” read all about it…

San Luis Obispo, CA 93403, 11-11-2019 Monday:   Good morning and welcome to the Veteran’s Day 2019 Edition of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.  I have shared with you before the story of my father, James, and my uncles Dennis and Alvin, two men who I never had the pleasure to know, only photos.  My pop and his siblings served in World War II, taking part in Operation Torch[i], the invasion of French North Africa.  Dennis was among the few who died during that operation, shot by a Senegalese soldier no less, and my daddy and his younger brother were later wounded in Sicily[ii].  Both were knocked out of the war with Alvin dying later due to his wounds, but pop was able to return to service and was part of the occupation army in Germany.

Eventually, dad was sent to Japan and then found himself in the middle of the Korean Conflict[iii].  When North Korean forces poured across the boundary separating North Korea from South, General Douglas MacArthur had to hurriedly ship over all men in uniform no matter if they were occupation troops, cooks, administrative personnel, or whatever, all of them had to rush to South Korea to keep the NORCs from driving U.S. and U.N. troops off the peninsula, so overwhelming was the enemy’s attacks.

Dad is 96 years-old now and as feisty as ever.   Both his brothers are gone, having died in the Second World War, yet he continues to labor on, hoping to make it to his 97th birthday-plus so he can make sure he votes to give President Trump a second term and to see him through it and, if possible, make it far enough to vote for Mike Pence.  Gosh, Democrats abhor veterans like my father.

My dad is disturbed by the never-ending drive to remove President Trump from office.  He expresses his dismay that a man in uniform- Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman would attempt to drive a shiv into the back of the commander-in-chief.   As he says, the president and the president alone is in charge of foreign policy and that people in the diplomatic corps either carry out the president’s foreign policy or they step down, resign, and go away.

Although my dad did not serve in Vietnam, he knows many men and women who did and for Lt. Col. Vindman[iv], he uses a derisive term used by frontline troops in the Southeast Asian conflict to describe the troops in secure areas far to the back: REMF.

What is a REMF, you ask.  Well, let me give you the sanitized form: rear-echelon mother-f**kers.  In the ‘Nam, for every frontline infantryman there were ten REMFs in the back, living off the fat off the land, engaging in black market activities, escaping the conflict in the rice paddies, the mountains, and the jungles.  When he sees Lt. Col. Vindman, he begins snarling at the sight of the ‘sleazebag.’

Besides REMFs, my pop is also angry about many things and as he has said on countless occasions, he did not like Barack Obama’s foreign policy endeavors, especially his allying the United States in a covert embrace with the despotic regime in Iran by looking beyond their anti-American and anti-Israeli actions, but it was President Obama’s right to pursue this course of diplomacy as long as it was legal.

Now, we all know that President Obama did far too many things that stunk to high heaven.  Actions such as un-freezing $150 billion[v] in frozen assets as well as purchasing the freedom of American hostages held by the mullahs for another $1.5 billion in a variety of U.S. and foreign currencies.  Who does that?  Who flies in pallets of cash to purchase the release of U.S. persons in the middle of the night?  No, dad was extremely angry over this and it was his belief that if we have to have a United Nations, it is up to them to lean on scum such as the Iranians.

Furthermore, daddy says the way you remove a president with whom you disagree or whom you don’t like, is you do it at the ballot box.  As he says, the impeachments of Andrew Johnson, Richard M. Nixon, and Bill Clinton proved to be disasters, either in the process or in their aftermath.

Of the three presidents, Johnson’s impeachment was completely political because members of his Cabinet, inherited from his predecessor Abraham Lincoln, were disputing his actions which is rather like what we have to day with President Donald J. Trump.

Instead of the 45th president’s Cabinet trying to take him out, it’s the ‘bureaucratic state,’ the notorious and diabolical Deep State, unelected hacks and faceless bureaucrats who believe it’s ‘our way or the highway.’  This is both un-American and it’s not morally right.

Pop believes the men and women of the U.S. military support President Trump and will defend him and remain loyal to the Constitution to which, they all have sworn an oath.  However, we are witnessing a spectacle where political generals and their subordinates- men like Lt. Col. Vindman- are willing to sacrifice their integrity to remove via whatever means necessary a president with whom they disagree and whom they loathe.

While we can sell weapons to whomever we like, pushing the boundaries of NATO to envelop Russia such as making the Ukraine a de facto junior partner[vi] is both bizarre and provocative.  We should not try to encircle Russia, we are no longer fighting the Cold War and whether we like them or we don’t, Russia has a right to feel secure just as we do.  We sure didn’t like it when they were putting missiles in Cuba.

Friends, if you have veterans in your family or family members serving in the military, make sure you wish them well and that you thank them for their service.  We owe a debt of gratitude that most will never understand or undergo so let’s make sure we all do the right thing just as we defend the right of the president to conduct his or perhaps one day, her, foreign policy.

Join me tomorrow as we enter open hearing on impeachment week.  What a circus.  Itzi- happy birthday!

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.

On December 10, 1974, British rock band, Argent, released a two-CD live album, the acclaimed “Encore Live in Concert.”  The band was touring the United States as well as the world and knocking crowds out with their powerful blend of rock-and-roll.  Once again, the lineup is the same: Rod Argent (all keyboards/vocals), Russ Ballard (guitars/vocals), Jim Rodford (bass/vocals), and Bob Henrit (drums and percussion).  The hits are all here as are a gem or two from the Zombies which is why we encourage everyone to seek this amazing album out by visiting whatever site you do for the best in rock-and-roll music- you can thank us later.

#48.7l Return of Champions #33 01-05-2019 (400)

The British band, Queen, returned to the road and united with former Free, Bad Company, the Firm, and the Law- as well as solo vocalist- Paul Rodgers and delivered a stunning album entitled, “Return of the Champions” on May 16, 2005.  Although one might find the grouping of Brian May and Roger Taylor with the voice of Rodgers, it works and does so extremely well.  The band performs a variety of songs not only from Queen but from Bad Company and the solo catalogs.  Joining the band are Danny Miranda (bass), Spike Edney (keyboards, backing vocals), Jaime Moses (rhythm guitar/backing vocals), and some backup vocalists.  This is a must-own effort, one we encourage everyone to seek out at whatever site they visit for the best in rock music and get it there; you will be glad you did.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

[i] Operation Torch occurred on November 08-16, 1942 and was the opening of the Second Front in World War II.  Much of what happened there remains unsung and is seen as a backwater but it was important for the Allies to determine if the Vichy French would honor their commitments to the Nazis and fight or would they surrender.  After a brief time, they did surrender. The United States lost more than 500 troops, my uncle Dennis being among them.

[ii] Operation Husky began on July 09, 1943 and ran until August 17, 1943.  Uncle Alvin and my daddy suffered wounds in this campaign and both were sidelined.  Alvin later died from his wounds while my pop returned to duty in time to serve in the U.S. occupation forces in Germany.

[iii] My pop was stationed in Japan after re-upping for another stint in the U.S. Army and not long after arriving in Japan in April 1950 found himself among those rushed across the Sea of Japan to aid beleaguered U.S. and U.N. forces. Daddy was knocked out of the war for good when a comrade’s misstep on a Chinese-made landmine cost him an eye, a hand, and injured his back, pain that he lives with until this day.

[iv] Lt. Col. Vindman did serve in the Iraq War from 2004-05, I believe, and received a purple heart for injuries sustained in a roadside bomb.  However, daddy views him with disdain as any self-respecting combat veteran would refrain from politics in the way this former officer has and would never drive a dagger into the back of his commander-in-chief.  According to my staff sergeant father, this man is NOT a fellow American military officer but a corrupt hack working for a political end.

[v] Democrats hem and haw over the semantics on this.  NO, President Obama did not give them ‘$150 billion in cash;’ he did, however, unfreeze frozen assets of theirs which in effect, did place $150 billion into the hands of the mullahs.  He did give the Iranians $1.5 billion in assorted global currencies so they apply it to terrorist activities and to their illicit nuclear program while giving us MOST of our hostages.

[vi] Anti-Russian zealots seek to encircle the former Soviet Union.  Read this article: < http://neweasterneurope.eu/2018/05/18/case-ukraines-membership-nato/ >

[vii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[viii] We promoted the music of Vanilla Fudge beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  We hope you will seek this band out and add their music to your growing collection.

[ix] We promoted the music of Country Joe and the Fish beginning on Tuesday, 16-July-2013 through Friday, 26-July-2013.  This was one of the greatest bands to explode out of San Francisco, California, during the Psychedelic 1960s.  What we neglected to do at the time was to promote the solo albums of Country Joe as well as an interconnected band, the Dinosaurs formed with members of both Quicksilver Messenger Service and Country Joe and the Fish (among others).  Please, seek it out and enjoy.

[x] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “Unfinished Music No. 1- Two Virgins” appeared on Friday, 25-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[xi] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[xii] As for the Beatles, see previous footnote.  The album, “Get Back” appeared the album, “Let It Be,” which we presented on Saturday, 03-December-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[xiii] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule, Great Southern, and the Derek Trucks Band.  Stay tuned for further developments.
