Joe Biden does not operate from a position of altruism; no, every time we hear of billions going to Ukraine, billions going to mass monkeypox vaccine distribution, or billions going to fund his ‘cancer moonshot,’ one must know that billions skimmed off the top from those billions are going into the pockets of the BIG GUY and members of his corrupt, mafia-like family. Ye, gods, folks.

Next, the reward for the POS attempted assassin in Los Angeles, California, this past Sunday, in which a punk strode up to a police car in Compton and shot two L.A.

  61. 2020 Friday A: Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s highly likely we will see a vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu Chinese Virus Crisis sometime in October or November. Speaking of the Wuhan Waltz, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is pulling back from saying he would impose a national mask mandate. Poor old Joe, he has no clue what he is saying on any given day. When is someone going to charge Dr. Jill Biden with elder abuse? Speaking of “Gropin’ Joe,” Howie Kurtz on Fox News Channel noted that last night’s CNN ‘Town Hall’ with the former VP and Anderson Cooper was not even softball, that it was akin to “T-Ball,” noting that Trump received all manner of hateful questions in his earlier in the week while everyone treated Senile Old Joe with kid gloves.

The president also signed a $11.6 billion aid package for the people of Puerto Rico, beset by corruption, mismanagement, and criminality on the part of their government.

  76. 2022 Sunday: F**king Joe Biden might not be as senile as many believe.  Earlier this week, the man who showered with his young daughter now wants to send BILLIONS of nonexistent dollars into a ‘cancer moonshot’ much like President John Fitzgerald Kennedy launched the program to put Americans on the moon.  Every single time we hear that slobbering, minor-attracted individual announces plans to send billions of dollars into the Ukraine, into monkeypox mass vaccinations, into forcing every American to join a labor union, or into fighting cancer, the question is this: HOW BIG is the percentage going into the pockets of the BIG GUY?  Joe Biden is not doing any of this because of altruism; no, he is doing it because he knows how to skim money off the top and to then divert it into the coffers of his corrupt family.  The man is a criminal, a possible felon, not just for his creepy fondling of young girls and his sniffing of women’s hair and his groping of their behinds, but because he has become a master criminal that dwarfs the criminality of anyone else in elective office, even that of Mitch McConnell.  Let us not forget that “Cocaine Mitch’s” father-in-law was sending South American cocaine to Europe via his shipping company’s fleet of vessels which is why the Turtle has the moniker that he does.  We must neuter this man’s ‘presidency’ just as we must neuter the Democrats’ hopes of toppling our constitution-based representational republic which is NOT a democracy.  Friends, let me know what you think this week, I thank you for joining me each day and will see you again in six months.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0956 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Red Rose.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick was a disappointment to many in that the band was evolving and had changed producers. “All Shook Up” came out on October 24, 1980 and spawned no big radio hits which was unexpected. Longtime producer Tom Werman was out, and Beatles producer George Martin was in.  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion) although following the release, bassist Petersson would leave the group due to overwork.  The band was on the road around the clock- doing at least 300 shows per year and recording albums in between.  This album would not receive the same praise or achieve the same sales as its predecessor, “Dream Police.”  Still, as completists, we must own every shred of music produced by a favorite band.  Seek it out and enjoy, we think you will be glad you did.

  46. 2007 Tuesday: A new Osama bin Laden videotape was released on the sixth anniversary of 9/11; in it, the voice of the al-Qaida leader is heard commemorating one of the suicide hijackers and calling on young, radicalized Muslims- members of the so-called, “Religion of Peace,” to follow his example by martyring themselves in attacks on the West.  Screw ‘em.  Meanwhile, in answer to the United States “Mother of All Bombs,” the amazing GBU/43/B Massive Ordinance Air Blast, the so-called “MOAB,” the Russians test what they call the “Father of All Bombs,” the Aviation Thermobaric Bomb of Increased Power.  It looks amazing, too, and if it’s true, this conventional weapon would be the most powerful, non-nuclear bomb in the world.

  50. 2012 Tuesday: The United States commemorates the victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and for the first time, no heightened alerts of possible terrorist attacks mar it.  However, thanks to the lack of heightened security, terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate at Benghazi, Libya, and kill the U.S. Ambassador J. Chris Stevens and three other brave Americans.  In addition to this attack, thugs and scum also attacked the embassy in Cairo, Egypt.  Calls to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for aid went unanswered. 
  51. 2013 Wednesday: France drafts a resolution on this date, which allows the Syrian government–under the control of Bashar al-Assad–can turn over its stockpiles of chemical weapons to the world community for it to destroy.  Meanwhile, the UN receives purported use of chemical weapons by the Syria militants against their own people—the news comes from Russia. 
  52. 2014 Thursday: With help from Qatar officials, Syrian rebel captors free 45 U.N. peacekeepers from Fiji; the jihadists took the soldiers hostage two weeks earlier after the rebels overtook the Syrian-controlled part of Golan Heights from government troops.  Elsewhere, John Gustafson, former bassist with the English band, Roxy Music[iv], died on this date.
  53. 2015 Friday: In Mecca, Saudi Arabia, a large construction crane at a building site collapses, killing approximately 100 people and injuring numerous others.   Meanwhile, in the early running for the 2016 presidential nomination, Governor Rick Perry, Texas, becomes the first to drop out of the pool of around 16 candidates.  Many thought he would go far.
  54. 2016 Sunday:  Word leaks that Democratic 2016 presidential nominee will miss an event commemorating the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, due to a bout with chronic pneumonia.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reports that worldwide oil prices are dropping as U.S. oil rig numbers continue increasing.  Oil prices always drop prior to elections because politicians who hate fossil fuels always want the prices lower, so the average citizen does not associate them with high oil prices.
  55. 2017 Monday: In the Catalan city of Barcelona, Spain, one million Catalonians take to the streets on the state’s national holiday demanding secession from the parent country.  Things would not work out for them in the long run.  Still, the independence movement gave it a good shot.  Meanwhile, as Hurricane Irma begins moving up the coast, 7 million homes in Georgia and Texas find themselves without power and in varying degrees of distress. 
  56. 2018 Tuesday: Near Hajin, in eastern Syria, U.S. backed Syrian troops begin the final assault on the final ISIS stronghold in the war-torn country, something that would never have occurred under a President Hillary Rodham Clinton but most certainly did under President Donald J. Trump.  Light ‘em up, boys!  Meanwhile in Asiatic Russia, the Russian military commences joint military exercises with communist China, putting more than 300,000 troops in the field, their largest such endeavor since the early 1980s.  They are trying to send President Trump a message: Look at us- we’re bad.
  57. 2019 Wednesday: As usual, Palestinians are running amok after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promises that should he win next week’s snap election, he will annex one-third of the West Bank.  The Palestinians bellow that ‘this would be tantamount to a war crime.’  Look you dimwits, you are better off with the Israelis in charge than you are with Hezbollah and Hamas and the rest of the jihadi groups.  Give it a rest.  Elsewhere, it’s official: two Trump-backed Republicans in North Carolina win two special elections, elections that occurred the prior day.  Dan Bishop won the 9th Congressional District sending Democrats spinning because they honestly thought they stood a chance in a state they claim is becoming BLUE.  In the 3rd Congressional District, Greg Murphy won that race, beating another favored Democrat.  Wow.
  58. 2020 Friday: The TV ratings are in for last night’s opening game in the NFL- the Kansas City Chiefs v. the Houston Texans- had a ratings view of 16.4-percent less than last year’s opening day.  What we will say is that we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have sworn off the NFL until (1) they fire Roger Goodell and (2) come back to their senses.  IF players want to protest- which is their God-given right- do it on your off time and put your own money where your mouths are.  Otherwise, STFU you spoiled rotten sniveling bastards.  Meanwhile, the White House announces that the kingdom of Bahrain will also make peace with Israel which drives the Palestinian trash into a foaming-at-the-mouth frenzy once again.  Hey, PLO- make peace with Israel and STFU!  Also, at the White House today, President Donald J. Trump awards the Congressional Medal of Honor to U.S. Army Ranger Sgt. Maj. Thomas Payne for heroic actions in Iraq in 2015.  The unit in which Sgt. Maj. Payne served went to free approximately 70-75 Kurdish hostages being held by ISIS fecal matter.  He helped rescue many of them and would not leave the field of battle even though one building in which, hostages were being held was ablaze and collapsing all around him.  In the action, he helped kill 20 of the ISIS thugs.  Congratulations, Sgt. Maj. Payne!
  59. 2020 Friday A: New York City business leaders sign a letter to Mayor Bill Di Blasio demanding he address the ‘deteriorating conditions in the Big Apple,’ the rising crime rates, the burnt out and destroyed businesses, the dying restaurants, and bars.  Mayor Di Blasio and his colleague, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo together have destroyed one of the great states and cities of the country.  Time to recall both of them.  Elsewhere, the city of Austin, Texas, slashes its police department of one-third of its annual budget- $150 million- which leads law enforcement to erect billboards outside the city warning travelers to ‘enter at your own risk.’  The murder rate in Austin is up 63-percent this year alone.  What the hell is going on in the country?
  60. 2020 Friday B:  Big news continues to come out as to HOW the Trump-Russia Collusion investigation led by senile Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his team wiped their phones used in the investigation so as to coverup the real crimes here- the vilification and attempted destruction of a duly elected president by members of the Obama administration- including the BIG GUY himself, perhaps- so the world awaits further information.  It would appear that Andrew Weissmann, the alleged top dog who ran this phony investigation ordered his cronies to bleach as much information as they could before it fell into the hands of the U.S. Justice Department.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says, ‘God is mad at the people’ and that ‘climate change and global warming’ are responsible for the state’s woes.  People are dying and Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom (ever notice how hate-filled people always smile before they say ugly stuff like Newsom, Ilhan Omar, and other scumbags) among others who says he has ‘no patience for climate change deniers.’  Look moron, instead of funneling every dime into CalPERS and other state-funded retirement programs for state employees, why not do some of the necessary forestry management such as clear-cutting, removing dead undergrowth, allowing timber companies to responsibly harvest and replant, and engaging in the various water transportation and catchment systems that made our state great?  What a bunch of losers, we hope San Francisco is blown off the map by an angry God.

Trump praised first-responders today when he was visiting Ground Zero in New York City and then took some well-earned jabs at feeble old Joe Biden.  Large crowds gathered around the president, smiling, shaking his hand, and taking photos with him.  And they claim that President Trump is hated in New York City.  Folks, President Donald J. Trump is much-loved and the proof of this is that slobbering Joe Biden nary uttered a peep today, nothing celebrating first-responders and survivors as well as veterans of the War on Terror.  Folks, Joe Biden is a f**king disgrace.  Everyone knows who won last November.

  75. 2022 Sunday: Observation of the Day Friends, my loyalties always lied with the Constitution Party, a party we lack in the Golden State which has thrust me into the independent wings or to the Republicans.  California has a piss-poor system of elections, the so-called ‘TOP-TWO’ vote getters facing off in the General Election which means in some districts, it could be two Democrats- a crazy one and a lunatic- facing off against one another for the seat.  Much like Alaska and their indecipherable ‘ranked choice’ voting catastrophe which seems only to aid the candidates the voters DON’T want, the Top-Two system basically denies any of the state’s third parties from EVER having someone in the General Election.  The Peace and Freedom Party, the Green Party, and the American Independent Party NEVER make it past the primary elections.  Why these parties have NOT joined together in a lawsuit to take this bullshit system to the Supreme Court to have it tossed is beyond any of us.  My assumption is it tells everyone that they are truly aligned with the Democrats.  Anyhow, the ONLY way to beat this crap is for there to be a massive voter turnout.  We can get rid of this leftist scum and reclaim our state.  It’s been done before.  We must save our state and send every Democrat in statewide office into retirement and to then keep them there.  IF the Dems are going to use illegal aliens, then so should we, it’s akin to the days of the Roman Republic when candidates vying for the Senate or for Counsel bought votes.  If it’s good enough for the Dems then it’s good enough for us.  First, let’s get rid of the scum destroying our state and resurrect it like the fabled phoenix from the ashes.  Let me know what you think- Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

241. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, I don’t drink as much Kool-Aid as some of my colleagues do so we will do our best to keep things moving ahead without so much bombast. You know what I am saying, we no talk stink about Democrats being evil and President Biden being a senile bonehead. That is not my style nor will it be. Besides, the prospect of Donald Trump going to prison is giving me chicken skin up and down my arms.
