TWENTY-FOUR DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2018
TODAY IS GOLDIE’S 100th BLOG POST AT THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF CULINARY POLITICS-ELEMENTAL NEWS OF THE DAY
Question: is the stock market collapse the dreaded ‘October surprise?’
Bakersfield, CA, 10-14-2018 Sunday: Today is my 100th blog post at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day- I am joining a select group of fellow chef-bloggers who have achieved this monumental milestone. I will readily admit, I never believed that I would arrive at this heavenly point and yet, here I am, doing my 100th essay for our esteemed blog. I invite everyone joining me for what most likely is going to be my final post of the year, to come celebrate with me. Thank you, Stinky, thank you, Rollie, thank you, Mo, and the rest of our blogging family.
The election coming up in just little over three weeks is an crucial one, perhaps one of the most imperative as we stand at a crossroads of sorts. Do we continue going down the path that President Donald J. Trump seeks to take us or do we return to excessive government control via job- and -business-killing rules and regulations that the last administration imposed on the American people?
This past week, we have had ample opportunity to witness what could be this election cycle’s ‘October surprise,’ what with the sudden collapse of markets worldwide and the immediate pointing of fingers in the direction of President Donald J. Trump.
Earlier this week, the Dow fell by a startling 831 points, which propelled investors to begin selling off high-flying stocks and to begin investing in utilities, precious metals such as gold, and into other proven rock-solid stocks that seldom suffer from sudden fluctuations in the market or in global economic policy.
Investors typically do not like to see interest rates go up, bull market killers, especially when they go up several times whereas people who have money invested in certificates of deposit and money market accounts- perhaps the safest but slowing growing investments ever- do. If rates go up, so do the returns on their investments.
There are questions as to why the chairman of the Federal Reserve would boost rates when things are going gangbusters. Oh, sure, I understand that they do this ostensibly to stop runaway markets that could lead to economic collapse and downturns but there is no reason to do that right now, not when things are finally soaring after the Obama years.
The fungibility of money is such that businessowners and investors want to see economic activity increase rather than return to the stagnant years we saw under the last administration.
Democrats claim this election is one they will win based on ‘pocketbook issues.’ As far as I see things, it appears to me that even here in California, employees and employers are better off than they were, say, 2.5-3 years ago because we have more customers flocking in and spending more on items like lobster and crab, we are paying our workers more in hourly wages and benefits, and everyone sports a smile on his or her face almost all the time.
Why then the Fed would do what it has done tells me one thing: Jerome Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve might be working on behalf of the Democrats in a surreptitious manner.
He most certainly knows that even though various trade negotiations initiated by President Donald J. Trump are paying off, there are still some sectors around the country dependent on trade with China are continuing to suffer due to the tariffs and the lack of long-term, stabilizing consistency.
The Democrats are hammering away at the so-called ‘pocketbook issues’ as well as at the tariffs and other barriers imposed on China because they know the media will provide them the necessary cover with which, they can go after the President and attempt to separate his base from him.
I think we already see signs that our economy is at its strongest since the 1960s what with low unemployment, demand for more workers, higher wages, better benefits and no law like Obamacare causing employers to offer workers 28 hours or less so they can avoid the mandate the failed law imposed upon us.
If the Democrats were to win in November and beyond, we would see all of the discarded Obama-era rules and regulations immediately return to the books, we would see global agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Paris Climate Accord become law once more, and our economy would return to the disastrous one the last president celebrated.
This November, we have but one choice and that choice is to vote with Republicans and against all Democrats. This is all we can do as even if there are some among the Dems who sound sane, there are far more who are out-and-out loony tunes like Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, and legion upon legion of more whack-jobs who want to screw every American where the sun don’t shine.
This is my final post of the year and I urge everyone, beg everyone to consider your vote as if we elect more Democrats, I seriously doubt we will ever get the opportunity we got back in November 2016 to stop the onward-marching socialism the Democrats so seemingly love now.
Thanks for being here with me this year; we will meet again- the good Lord willing- sometime in the new year. God bless and good luck, keep the faith, and let us make sure a massive red tidal wave rushes in and sweeps all the left-wing Democrats out to sea.
See you next time. Love ya all.

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.
