“Just the Facts: California Democrats NEVER thought Prop 14 would let them down but it has as in many political races in November, we have Democrats going toe-to-toe with Republicans” by Chef Goldie McNamara
FALL SESSION 2018
BLOG POST #2,902 AT THE AICP-END
TWENTY-SEVEN DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2018
For whom the bells toll- the Democrats- are going down in California next month to massive defeat
Bakersfield, CA, 10-11-2018 Thursday: On November 06, the people of California will go to the polls just as will our fellow Americans across the country. We have a clear-cut choice before us, do we want to move ahead with the policies of President Donald J. Trump or do we want to permit the Democratic-Socialists (they all are ‘democratic-socialists’) to reclaim power and begin rolling back all the amazing things we have been enjoying such as a better business environment, more money in everyone’s pockets, and a restoration of freedom? I think the answer is obvious and even though MOST polls say otherwise, at least until the last seven days before Election Day, I think we are going to witness a RED TSUNAMI the likes of which, we have never seen.
When the Democrats tricked the voters of California to approve Proposition 14 back in 2010, I believe, it led to a situation in which, we have two Democrats squaring off against one another in statewide elections and in many federal elections. Why the other political parties did not find the best attorneys to get this unconstitutional ballot proposition overturned is beyond me because it damages the multi-party political system.
A coterie of opponents of the proposition brought a legal suit against Prop 14, Field et al. v. Bowen et al. in 2011. On September 19, 2011, an appellate court ruled that this preposterous proposition was ‘constitutional,’ which in my view is wrong, flat-out wrong. How is it that we can effectively have a one-party state? How in hell is that ‘constitutional?’
Due to Democratic mismanagement of the state, however, the primary races here in California produced a surprising result: there are more Republicans competing for statewide positions than there were following the 2010 victory of Prop 14.
For instance, Republican gubernatorial challenger, John Cox, has closed the distance between heavily-favored Democrat, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom. Some of the shrinkage is because of the farce we witnessed during the confirmation fight of Judge Brett Kavanaugh a couple of weeks ago but much of the gap closure has been because Lt. Gov. Newsom is a far-left whack job.
Newsom wants open borders just as he wants to provide at taxpayers’ cost everything FREE to illegal aliens such as health care, education, driver’s licenses and automobile insurance, housing, food aid, you name it, Little Gavin Newsom with his slicked-back hair and his angry eyes has announced he wants to put the ‘needs’ of illegal aliens ahead of those of the native-born Californians and U.S. citizens.
Lt. Gov. Newsom has since gone silent on this as he watched his opponent shave the distance between them by 3-6 points, effectively giving Mr. Cox a fighting chance but we know the little schmuck still is going to do this even though he remains mum on the topic.
In the race for lieutenant governor, we have two Democrats competing head-to-head, thanks to Prop 14. On the one hand, we have state Senator Ed Hernandez going up against Eleni Kounalakis, a businessperson of good repute, someone for whom Henry and I will be casting our votes.
It is more important to have people with business experience (unless they are a nut such as that pitiful fool, Tom Steyer) as they understand deficits, the bottom line, and making payroll, something most liberal Democrats have little to no clue of how to do.
For the position of secretary of state, we have incumbent Democrat Alex Padilla going up against Republican election law attorney, Mark P. Meuser. As you can imagine, I will be casting my vote for the Republican.
For the office of controller, we have Democrat incumbent Betty T. Yee going up against- wait for it- REPUBLICAN Konstantinos Roditis, another businessman, and someone for whom we are going to vote.
You see, we want Republicans handling the money, not the Democrats, because we can trust the former whereas the latter will continue digging the state into deeper holes such as wanting to provide FREE HEALTH CARE to illegal aliens.
For the office of treasurer, we have Democrat Fiona Ma going up against another Republican, Greg Conlon, businessman and CPA, someone who will work glove-in-hand with Mr. Roditis, which is why we must overwhelmingly vote for the GOP ticket on November 6.
The next race and perhaps one of the most important is the one to replace the POS Xavier Becerra, the state’s attorney-general. This bum has NEVER seen an illegal alien he did not love and he does everything he can to protect the infamous sanctuary state policies that Jerry Brown- the outgoing governor- helped to enact. The people of the state do NOT want this. Therefore, we must elect Republican and retired state judge Steven C. Bailey to take his place.
For the position of insurance commissioner, we have another Democrat state Senator Ricardo Lara (another winner like AG Becerra) going up against no party preference Steve Poizner, the man we want in that seat. Mr. Poizner is a conservative businessman and that is precisely whom we need to oversee insurance costs and to stop the socialized medicine plan the Dems want to stuff down our throats.
We may at some point see changes made to counteract Prop 14 as in many congressional races and assembly and state senate seats in the state government, things have not gone as expected for the Democrats in that certain areas, there are NO Democrats on the ballot but two Republicans going toe-to-toe, something the Dems never foresaw in their wildest wet dreams.
We will continue tomorrow with as many of the races as we can. I do not want to bore our readers in other states but friends, it is what it is and this mid-term election might be the most important in our lifetimes. See you tomorrow.

Due to the increasing number of threats and intrusions into our personal lives, we who blog here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day have engaged the services of local up-and-coming Bakersfield street artist, Simone, to do renderings of us as he sees fit. I must say that he did an ‘okay job,’ it is what it is and I am fine with that. Anyhow, I have spent my life working in professional food service and find it an immense joy to be able to come here 1-2 times a year and to share my political opinions and observations with me. Thank you for joining me, we welcome everyone and invite them to bring their friends, family members, and coworkers/employees with them.

SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:
Monday, January 16, 2012 Blog Post:
The Byrds formed in 1964 centered around the 12-string Rickenbacker guitar of leader Roger McGuinn, lead guitarist David Crosby, bassist Chris Hillman, harmonica player Gene Clark, and drummer Michael Clarke with each member doing lead or harmony vocals. Their first album, “Mr. Tambourine Man” (June 21, 1965) hit the airwaves and exploded across the nation and the world. Their electrical reinterpretation of Bob Dylan’s classic tune—the title cut—showed that when the band electrified the folk music of Dylan, man, it took on a completely different sound and the band hit the charts with a bang and never looked back. We love this album as we do ALL of the Byrds’ records and highly urge YOU to use our link to redirect your browser to Amazon.com where you can get it in the format, the condition, and the price that is right for you—you will be glad you did.
Sunday, March 02, 2014 Blog Post:
Today’s album by the Flying Burrito Brothers is their eighth release, but with the same lineup as the earlier and near original, “Burrito Deluxe”: “Sleepless Nights.” The album came out in April 1976 and featured a bunch of classic C & W songs recorded back in the early days of the band. One finds all manner of classics on this album, from the title cut to “Tonight, the Bottle Let Me Down” to “Green, Green Grass of Home.” The lineup featured the classic one of Gram Parsons (guitars, vocals, piano), Chris Hillman (bass, vocals), Mike Clarke (drums), Bernie Leadon (lead guitar, vocals), and of course, “Sneaky” Pete Kleinow (pedal steel guitar) PLUS Gram’s girlfriend at the time, the famed country artist, Emmylou Harris. You can buy this excellent album by using the above link, going to Amazon.com, and buying it now.
