In the United States, we acknowledge a total confirmed cases at 800,932 with 43,006 confirmed deaths but 73,379 confirmed recoveries. As for the Chinese statistics, IF you enjoy fairy tales, IF you enjoy fantasy fiction, the communist government claims 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries, pretty much the same as yesterday’s number and the day before that and so on and so forth. Let this be a life lesson to everyone that communists, socialists, democratic-socialists and every other left-wing ideology always lie to cover their tracks. Do not believe anything the False China says. Meanwhile, word continues trickling out that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is ‘recovering from a cardiac event or cardiac surgery which could be true just as he might be dead due to the ill effects of a coup. We will remain vigilant and report the truth when we learn it.

IN the United States, there are 824,698 confirmed cases what with 45,297 confirmed deaths, and 75,050 confirmed recoveries. As for the world’s ‘friends,’ the communist Chinese, they still claim 88,423 confirmed cases what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries. As we say, “Communists always lie and so the Chinese continue doing so.” Soon, they will be paying the price as almost every nation encircling the globe is suffering from this unnecessary disaster.

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
On June 29, 1968, Pink Floyd returned with its sophomore effort, the acclaimed “A Saucerful of Secrets.” This album is the ONLY album among the group’s efforts to feature a quintet. Besides Syd Barrett (vocals/guitars), Roger Waters (bass/vocals), Nicky Mason (drums and percussion), and Rick Wright (keyboards/vocals), was David Gilmour (guitar/vocals). Gilmour was coming on board due to the mental meltdown of Barrett who would soon be confined to insane asylums with periods of wandering the streets of London. This album was not quite as strong as its predecessor but still ranks among the top releases of its time. We hope you will seek this one out at whatever site you shop for nothing but the absolute best in music as folks, you damn sure are going to love it.

[i] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013. Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.
[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015. We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.
[iii] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so. Please, stay tuned.
[iv] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.
[v] We promoted “Led Zeppelin IV” on Saturday, 12-July-2014. This ranks among the greatest albums of all time.
[vi] This whack-job girl- Greta Thunberg- should get some sort of mental and emotional aid because she and other young people like her have been indoctrinated by people seeking to deploy them to carry out their Marxist agenda.
