THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF CULINARY POLITICS-ELEMENTAL NEWS OF THE DAY COMMENTARY-OPINION-SPORTS-FOOD SERVICE FOR TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 2019 BY CHEF ROLAND CARL DAVIS, EDITOR



­­­




SPRING SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,152 AT THE AICP-END



505 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



I hate to say it but one year ago…I accurately predicted what was coming our way…
Arvin, CA, 06-18-2019 Tuesday:  We who write articles here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day feel that we are prescient on many things, particularly politics and the political mood gripping the country at any one time because we blog a week at a time on a cycle of about every six months or so.  That allows us to make predictions about whatever is going on at the time and then returning six months later to see if we were on the ball or we weren’t.  Well, back on June 28, 2018- ONE YEAR AGO- I wrote a post lamenting the lunacy gripping the Democratic Party- MY party, I shall remind you- and that if someone did not do something and excise the cancer eating away at its guts, we might go the way of the fabled Whigs and No-Nothings.    
Here are my very words from the opening paragraph of that awesome post, right on the money, like shooting fish in the proverbial barrel:
“You know, I am wavering a bit, folks, does anyone sitting out there believe that all the anger and vitriol we are witnessing on the Democrat side is helpful for our nation to undergo at the moment?  I feel somewhat chagrined to say this but I am becoming fearful that the more profane and violent our public speech becomes, the more it is going to cause us to lose elections, ones we should have in the bag but ones we are going to lose all because members of MY party are out there smoking the crazy weed.  What the f**k is going on, folks?  What is happening to a once-sane political party?” (Davis, 06-28-2018)
Look, I view President Trump as an abomination on many fronts although on occasion- like trying to defend the nation’s border- I am in complete agreement with him but not necessarily his means.  It does not mean we should lock children in cages or that we should deny the people seeking refuge ingress if they meet all the proper circumstances.  However, at some point- soon, I hope- we are going to have to slam the door shut and lock them out. 
Here is the point I was trying to make by pulling up my old post: our country is in danger of spinning off the rails and if the leadership of my party- namely Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and the other ancient heads and historical figures (thanks to Canned Heat for that snippet) do not do something to curb the over-abundant enthusiasm of the younger, more radicalized members, our party is going to be in trouble. 
What I am saying is that if we fail to get a grip on the young guns running amok out there, promising everything flipping free and welcoming every impoverished person from around the whirling planet to come and join us on our majestic ocean liner, we are going to capsize and there is not going to be sufficient lifeboats for us to save the women and children, much less anyone else. 
I get it, Speaker Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Schumer have painted themselves using radioactive paint into the flipping corner in their drive to do whatever they must to oust this president.  Only, it’s going to backfire on us and has the potential to carry our party to the bottom of the sump.  Don’t want to go that way, folks, and if I must jump ship and join a third party, then that is what I may have to do. 
Here is more of what I said in that very clairvoyant (if I do say so myself) post:
“I would like to urge caution to the leaders of the Democratic Party that again, if they do not wish to go the way of the Whigs and the No-Nothings, they need to take a massive whiff of smelling salts so they can reclaim their wits and begin doing the right thing.
“I will predict that the Republicans are going to win BIG in the House and Senate races in November and that my party will not learn its lessons but will instead redouble their efforts to move even further left.” (Davis, 06-28-2019)
Now, I was wrong about the gains we made in the House but correct about the losses in the Senate.  However, we must be honest about the House wins because there is underlying danger there.  Numerous of the Republican seats we flipped belonged to people who were going to retire so the power of incumbency was not present.
What is more, we flipped seats in places that Donald Trump won BIG in 2016 so the potential for them to flip back to GOP-controlled seats is extremely apparent, especially as many of the Dems we replaced them with are somewhat batty. 
Sadly, MY party continues deluding itself into believing we are on the ‘take back the White House train’ but we aren’t.  We are dangling by a thread.  Yes, the GOP has numerous seats in the Senate to defend but as long as our candidates continue making promises about taxing the living bejezzus out of everyone so we can give away FREE this and FREE that, the harder it’s going to be able to win as we will push normal Dems to the GOP.  It has happened before and it will happen again, if we are not careful.
Tomorrow, we will begin looking at some of our candidates.  The debates are coming soon and the weeding-out process is likely to begin because 24 people or more is too doggone much to handle and will enable Trump to snipe away at us.
See you tomorrow.

FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:








Phil Collins released his next album, “Hits,” on October 05, 1998.  As it sounds, this is a ‘best of’ compilation featuring the crème de la crème of his solo career.  The amazing thing about this amazing musician is that he has his ‘band persona’ and his ‘solo performer persona,’ which allows him to mix all manner of genres, styles, and formats.  We hope you will seek this exceptional effort out by visiting the absolute best site for music in the world- your nearest record shop.


SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:

Posted @ the Wednesday, September 26, 2012 Blog Post:







On May 15, 1992Santana released the band’s next album, the acclaimed, “Milagro.”  This album saw Santana come roaring back and with an expanded lineup delivered a highly delightful album.  Joining the guitarist were numerous vocalists, Walfredo Reyes (drums), Benny Rietveld (bass), Chester D. Thompson (keyboards), Raul Rekow and Karl Perrazo (assorted percussion), and quite a few others including a horn section.  The artist dedicated this album (according to Wikipedia) to Bill Graham- legendary rock promoter and owner of the Fillmore West and East as well as other amazing sites as well as the great Miles Davis.  We hope you will seek this awesome album out and add it to your collection as it is a worthy addition to any music collection.

Posted @ the Saturday, July 12, 2014 Blog Post A:




The next album by British hard-rock band, Led Zeppelin, “Untitled,” aka “Led Zeppelin IV,” aka “ZOSO,” came out on November 08, 1971.  If there was any doubt that this band was destined for monstrous success, this album put those doubts to rest.  Every song from the opening tune, “Black Dog” to the closing chords of “When the Levee Breaks” sandwiched around “Rock-and-Roll,” “Stairway to Heaven,” and “Going to California,” made this album one of the all-time greatest sellers in recorded music history.  We hope that everyone will seek this album out and add it to their collection as it is one of those all-time awesome moments in musical time.  You will love it.
