BLOG POST #3,285 AT THE AICP-END


373 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



Middle Eastern intervention (other than helping Israel) has been a constant drain on American financial resources so let’s hand them off to Vladimir Putin- all hell is going to break loose…
Bakersfield, CA 93304, 10-29-2019 Tuesday:   Back in May 2017, I suffered from much curiosity as to WHY- with Donald J. Trump in the White House- we had not turned the ISIS caliphate’s capital of Raqqa into a smoldering, radioactive hellhole with the remnants of ISIS fighters lying all about the craters.  I also was curious as to why- with ISIS on the run- we had not captured the caliphate’s scumbag leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and not fed him while still alive and kicking to a living hog and watched him come out its other end, never to walk through the gates of Islamic heaven?  At the time, it did not seem like much to ask for yet we were crushing the terrorist ‘country’ bit by frigging bit.     
Well, this past weekend, U.S. special forces entered Idlib Province in northwestern Syria and drove the feared caliph out of his hovel and down a dead-end tunnel where he and a pair of his wives detonated suicide vests and took their own wretched lives.  It is a shame we could not have captured this murderous piece of garbage and crucified him outside Washington, D.C. and left his miserable rotting remains there for the buzzards to consume.
We must congratulate the commander-in-chief for pursuing this inhuman filth and instilling some fear into his black heart prior to his death.  As President Trump more or less said (I am embellishing it a little bit), al-Baghdadi ‘fled down the tunnel shrieking and hollering like a little bitch with nowhere to go.’[i]  As Hillary said about Moammar Gaddafi when the Obama administration took him out, “We came, we saw, he died.”   
The difference between the Obama administration taking the Libyan dictator out via using proxies and the Trump administration obliterating al-Baghdadi is that the former was working WITH the United States in the fight against terrorism while the latter was a product of Obama’s foreign policy failures, namely pulling out ALL U.S. troops from Iraq while leaving massive quantities of U.S. military ordinance and military equipment- including armored vehicles, trucks, and artillery pieces- behind for anyone to use.
Furthermore, the amazingly rapid growth of ISIS (ISIL, as Obama referred to it, meaning the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, meaning everything between Iraq and the Mediterranean Sea, i.e., NO Israel) occurred because Obama drew numerous ‘red lines’ in the Syrian sand and then when violence ensued via Syrian forces using barrel bombs and toxic gas, he did nothing but stepped aside and let one of the worst civil wars in modern memory go unchecked.  What a guy.
I will admit that the War on Terror has been a disaster until recently because when Donald Trump took office, he revised the Obama era rules of engagement and allowed the U.S. military to do what it does best and that is to neutralize threats and kill the enemy.   
Within a short amount of time, the war against ISIS stepped up and amazing results were being seen, almost on a weekly basis.  ISIS was being pummeled from all sides by an all-powerful alliance that caused the caliphate to die by ever-shrinking boundaries.  They had no clue as to what hit them, and soon, many of the ISIS fighters were running for the hills, seeking to escape any way they could.  Gosh, it was great to see these sons of bitches on the run like the scum they are.
Unfortunately for the commander-in-chief, when he sought to keep his promise to the American people by ordering the pullout of troops from northern Syria, began catching hell, from both sides of the political aisle. 
Not sure why because a promise is a promise is a promise, right?  It was time to end the cycle of endless wars that continues draining the nation’s bank vaults, continues seeing our beloved young men and women die in nameless crap holes around the globe, and instead of cheering President Trump for doing the right thing, it is yet another thing for which, they want to impeach him now.  Wow.
Look, I get it, the Syrian Kurds fought with us against ISIS and had it not been for them and their Iraqi cousins, it might have taken far longer to defeat the terrorist organization. 
The problem with Middle Eastern foreign policy is that no matter how hard one administration after another tries various plans and schemes to make things better there, one cannot do it because the people living there remain the same.  Both the United States and the Russians have squandered wealth and lost lives in trying to prod a reluctant and recalcitrant variety of peoples (other than the Israelis) into making peace and doing the ‘right thing’ for all peoples living there. 
It hasn’t worked nor will it work until the residents from across North Africa to the frontiers of China set aside their differences and begin behaving like modern-day, civilized, global citizens instead of as they did when Mohammad was alive, well, and schlepping seven-year-old girls.
I think Trump is correct when he leaves it to the Russians, the Turks, Syrians, and the Iranians to work out things between them.  Fascinating thing is Russia historically has been at odds with at least two of them- namely the Turks[ii] and Iranians- and soon will be again when one of the other three (probably Turkey) causes a wider war and a bigger mess for which, we will not be playing a part.
Hey, folks, I think we are going to have some fun this week.  Few people have ever thought that professional chefs are as educated as we are, which is why I enjoy do my part of the blogging here.  I love demonstrating how intelligent I am.
See you tomorrow.

This is a caricature of me back in the 1980's when I was a middle-aged chef working at a Grand Hotel in Southern California as crafted by well-known Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone.  I began my culinary career in the early 1960's after having spent some time in the United States Army.  Presently, I am still working at a local country club somewhere in Kern County.  We here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day are all professional food service business owners and/or personnel.  We seek to educate the rest of the world as to the powerful political entities we are, which is why we invite everyone- including YOU- to join us here daily.

[i] This always seems to be the case of these jihadist scumbags that when cornered like the rats they are and with no one else to protect them flee screaming and crying.  Congratulations to the U.S. special forces and the military dog(s) that took out this worthless lump of pig flesh.  Hell, pigs have greater value in my eyes than did the life of the so-called ‘austere religious scholar’ as that rag, the Washington Post said about this worthless c**ksucker.  Burn in hell, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
[ii] From the days of the czars, the Russians have always sought to nip off pieces of the then-Ottoman Empire to in modern times, Turkey.  The Turks thought about repaying the favor in World War II but wisely did not enter into a military alliance with the Axis powers which preserved their independence following the war.  This did not stop the Turks from sending raw materials to the European Axis partners along with intelligence and safe docking for U-Boat crews. 


























































































FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:









The Zombies released their second and what would be final studio album for a while due to disagreements over the group’s next big hit.  “Odyssey and Oracle” came out on April 19, 1968 and featured the same lineup as their debut.  “Time of the Season” for some reason upset both vocalist Colin Blunstone and guitarist Paul Atkinson so much that the band broke up by the time the album debuted.  Imagine that, a song that became an anthem of the era, one still performed to this day by reassembled Zombies and played on the radio caused that much disruption among band members.  Ah, well, it is what it is.  Please, seek it out and consider adding it to your collection.


SPECIAL ALBUMS OF THE DAY:

Posted @ the Tuesday, February 05, 2013 Blog Post:






Today’s album is Frank Zappa’s fifth solo album, “The Grand Wazoo,” which he released on November 27, 1972 as he did yesterday’s offering, “Waka/Jawaka.”  Like his other works, everything has a theme of sorts and this one is no different from any of his other solo work.  The music is phenomenal and the lyrics memorable as Frank continue on releasing one excellent album after another.  Great music and a definite must for all serious collectors of the band and of the musical times, you can buy this CD now simply picking it up at your favorite site for the best in rock music.

Posted @ the Tuesday, September 16, 2014 Blog Post B:







Ian Hunter released his next effort, a DVD, “Just Another Night,” on October 04, 2004.  This fabulous film features a wide selection of tunes from throughout the artist’s career, which is why we dig it so much.  Joining the artist on this effort were Andy York (guitars), John Conte (bass), Steve Holley and Micky Curry (drums/percussion), and some phenomenal guests to make it even more special.   We love this album and believe that you will, too, so please seek it out, give it a good listen, and consider adding it to your growing album collection- you will be glad you did.
