Freedom of thought and movement must terrify totalitarian regimes like those in Beijing, Pyongyang, Caracas, Havana, and in the Democratic Party; why not lighten up and stop trying to silence our voices?

THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF CULINARY POLITICS-ELEMENTAL NEWS OF THE DAY COMMENTARY-OPINION-SPORTS-FOOD SERVICE FOR SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2019 BY CHEF JAMES “JT” TOBIASON

FALL SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,275 AT THE AICP-END



383 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



Why would anyone try to interfere with our blogs?  We are small fry, folks, so leave us be…
Visalia, CA 93277, 10-19-2019 Saturday:  Good morning, friends, welcome to the weekend edition of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.  You know…life could be so much simpler if we decided NOT to bash the Chinese and the halo of corruption and intimidation that swirls around their heads and would become corrupt ourselves, accept their so-called ‘book deals’[i] and become their biggest cheerleaders.  I guess if we signed on and committed such a disreputable act, we could each have a book in the homes of every Chinese citizen AND gulag inmate and if we made $5-$10 a pop per book, wow, can you imagine how wealthy we all would be?  We could live in some of those empty Chinese ghost cities in penthouse apartments.   
I would imagine we could swallow our pride, put our patriotism away in the cupboards over the fridge, and become the biggest leftist, pro-China hacks imaginable and that in so doing, we could halt all further cyberattacks[ii] on our various computer systems, the constant ongoing removal of various software programs that were there one day and vanished, inexplicably, the next, and could speed up the computer response times that seem to always slow down once the IT crew goes home for the day, life could and would be sweet.  But we WON’T.
The sad thing is, we know there are more entities than just the Chinese arrayed against us.  We have long suspected that Sundar Pichai works hand in glove with Beijing and that one of the reasons he shut down on the highly popular Google Plus app is that in the last presidential election- 2016- his gigantic public persuasion monstrosity could not slam the door the internecine war being waged by those who wanted Donald J. Trump and not Hillary Clinton to be the nation’s next president. 
We have written on this topic numerous times and have paid the price for doing so dearly.  Google most likely would love to close us down but there are far too many people working long hours here so the Google police do the next best thing and that is to GHOST us as much as they possibly can. 
You see, it is extremely difficult to see the blog on some days as we constantly receive Error 503[iii] messages or ‘service not available’ alerts which is strange as if one signs up to have the daily post dropped into their inbox on whatever device they are using, lo and behold, there’s the post with NOTHING in the way of you, me, or anyone else- including China’s secret police- from seeing it. 
Why people would wage war against our blogs or go after each of us individually is strange to us because we see ourselves as the minnows lurking amongst the water lilies hoping that the bigger fish won’t gobble us up.  How can anything we say or do anger the folks in Beijing, I mean, they must feel as though they are sitting atop the world and can crush us, or anyone else for that matter, at any time so why not permit us to say what we feel we must?  Get out of the way and leave us alone. 
When you combine the totalitarianism we see occurring not only around the world but also here in our very own Democratic Party[iv] and when combined with the social media and search engine tech giants, whether we like it or we don’t, these people are already in control and will continue amassing more and more power to the point that those of us in the older generations who still remember the Free World as it was (and still should be) that when we die out or are trundled off to reeducation camps, it will be a fait accompli, over and out, folks.
Freedom and liberty terrify some people.  Look at Beijing, look at how they imprison religious and ethnic minorities and do everything in their arsenal to either convert or silence them forever.  Look at the brave people fighting to keep the promises the communists made them when they assumed control of the former British Crown Colony, now, instead of sending in the tanks[v], they are sending in criminal gangs armed with hammers and clubs. 
The way we see it, nations such as China, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela[vi] have nothing to fear and everything to gain by giving their citizens the same freedoms we enjoy here in the United States (although the left here is diminishing many of them as we speak).  Sure, some of the leaders might go but the world becoming free would enable more and more progress to be on all fronts rather than treating the globe’s citizens as Public Enemy Number One.   
Summing up, I think totalitarians do not trust the people they rule.  I mean, the Democrats did everything they could in 2016 to throw the election to Hillary Clinton because they did not trust the American voters.  They thought they had a slam dunk and that all was said and done but the people bucked their wishes and so we find ourselves where we now find ourselves: fighting to defend President Trump around the clock, seven days a week, and with the prospect of another year if not another five.
As for the Chinese, IF you believe you are going to rule the world, what the heck do you have to lose if you allow people to have freedom?  Things seem to be going well for you now so what the heck are you so terrified of?  Lighten up and quit trying to silence us, we are not your enemies.
Join me tomorrow.  I will see you then unless the MSS[vii] takes me out before then.  Yeah, LOL but you never know.

The above cartoonish caricature of me by Bakersfield, California, by up-and-coming street artist, Simone, resembles me back in the 1980's when I was an Executive Sous Chef at a hotel in Monterey, California, 10-20 years later.  I originally came from Salinas, California, spent time in Fresno and Bakersfield, and currently am working at a fine-dining restaurant in Visalia, California.  I began cooking in 1967 when I apprenticed under a top chef working in the Napa Valley.

SEARCH DESCRIPTION:

[i] Various among us have received text messages from out of the blue promising us ‘book deals’ for the mere submission of a storyline and with nothing else.  Now, we are not stupid, there is only one entity doing something like this and that entity most likely is the MSS, the Chinese Ministry for State Security.  They are trying to buy us off and will give us a ‘book deal’ with most likely whatever ‘book’ we produce being on the must-read list of every citizen in China.  We could become fabulously wealthy but to accept a scam like this would mean we would have to impose silence upon ourselves when it comes to discussing China.  Not going to happen.
[ii] Since Itzi Nakamura and now James Tobiason have been discussing China in a negative light, our blog systems and computer networks have been under attack.  Coincidence?  Perhaps but highly doubtful, folks, highly doubtful, we believe the MSS is waging a war against us, tiny little bitty us, just a miniscule minnow lurking among the reeds.  It tells one just how fearful totalitarians are of freedom and liberty.
[iii] Google has been ghosting us and thousands of other blogs all because we are bold and brave enough to step outside the lines and share our thoughts.  Why are these tech giants and social media/search engine monstrosities so frightened by the free flow of ideas?  It makes no sense.  They have become enormously wealthy from the flow of information and ideas and now, they want to control it?  WTF!
[iv] Say what you will about the Democratic Party but when Trump mentioned ‘communists’ to Nancy Pelosi and others in their White House meeting earlier in the week, mentioning that word was like splashing the House Speaker with Holy Water. 
[v] The Chinese learned the lesson of Tiananmen Square that until they become masters of the entire planet, it does not look good for tanks to roll over protesters no matter how much they frighten you.  Therefore, they now have sent mainland Chinese criminal gangs into Hong Kong to beat the snot out of the leaders of the anti-Beijing protests.  How nice.  We must call them out on this sort of behavior wherever we see them doing it. 
[vi] You can ‘catch’ more flies with honey than with vinegar.  What are the dictators of these four countries so afraid of?  If people are free and can go about their lives without being constantly observed, watched, and punished over any little misstep, imagine what a free people can do?  The United States will forever be the benchmark when it comes to what free people can do because we have surpassed every other country on the planet, at least until the present crop of Democrats decided to go communist.
[vii] The Chinese Ministry of State Security is their form of the KGB. 















































































FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:










The Climax Blues Band released a two-CD package, “Live at the BBC 1978” in 2015.  Now some people moan and groan that the band was going ‘commercial’ by this point but folks, even fans of Led Zeppelin accused THEM of ‘selling out’ at times just as fans of the Rolling Stones have on occasion.  Our opinion here at the blog is that like it or not, bands change over time and they move in different directions.  If the past has you in its clutches—you know the 1960s or the 1970s—you may not like it but WE do.


SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:

Posted @ the Saturday, January 26, 2013 Blog Post:






Today’s Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention album is their sixth album, “Uncle Meat,” which the band released on April 21, 1969 as they did yesterday’s gem “The S--- of the Mothers.”  This was their next studio album and was another significant effort.  The genius of the master musician and his band- Frank Zappa (guitars/vocals/keyboards/arranger), Jimmy Carl Black and Billy Mundi (drums/vocals/percussion), Ray Collins (percussion/vocals), Roy Estrada (bass/vocals), and Don Preston  and Ian Underwood (keyboards) along with others- is visible for all to see and hear, which makes this an incredibly good album, one everyone needs to own.   Please visit whatever site you do for nothing but the best in rock music so you can add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.


Posted @ the Thursday, September 11, 2014 Blog Post B:






Led Zeppelin released its next ‘best of compilation,’ which contained the two parts released some years earlier:  “Early and Latter Days- the Best of Led Zeppelin” came out on January 13, 2002, and it features 23 select cuts from all of their studio albums, remastered and repackaged.  This is an excellent album for first-time fans and veteran listeners alike.  Add to that all the information included and you have a glorious collection that will give you listening pleasure for a lifetime.  Please, do yourself a favor and go check it out…now.
