  53. 2020 Monday: Democratic presidential nominee, “Pro-China Joe” Biden announces (what a joke) ‘NO NEW TAXES ON ANYONE MAKING BELOW $400,000 IN ANNUAL INCOME.’  Okay, Joe, okay- we shall see.  You cannot raise taxes by $4-6 TRILLION DOLLARS without going after everyone- including the bottom 50-percent that pay some or no taxes.  It is mathematically impossible.  Next, highly unpopular, former U.S. senator from Arizona announces he is joining the “GOP Anti-Trump cabal.”  Good for you, loser, we wouldn’t have it any other way.  After that, tropical storm Marco begins to weaken but tropical storm Laura is surging on its heels, expected to hit the Texas-Louisiana coastline sometime this week.   Meanwhile, U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy takes questions from House Democrats today.   Elsewhere, we learn that recent storms that tore through Iowa left 14 million acres and 60,000 homes destroyed.  Finally, President Trump and the FDA announce emergency authorization for the use of convalescent plasma treatments for those afflicted by the Wuhan Flu and in dire need of help. 
  54. 2020 Monday A: Liberty University head Jerry Falwell Jr. announces he is stepping down today from both his ministry and the university due to his wife having had a long-time affair with the pool boy.  How flipping sad is that.  It has also been said that Reverend Falwell has not always been true to his wife.  We will see where this goes.  Elsewhere, medical authorities in Germany announce it does indeed appear that well-known critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny- was indeed poisoned by a nerve agent.  At first Russia would not let him leave the country but the Germans were able to obtain an exit for him so they could treat him.  We know this Putin had a hand in this outrage and German Chancellor Angela Merkel told Moscow they better figure out what happened to Mr. Navalny.  
  55. 2020 Monday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 23,424,844 confirmed cases, +145,398, 808,716 confirmed deaths, +2,594, and 15,150,716 confirmed recoveries, +172,121.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,793,461 confirmed cases, UP by 40,679 new cases, 179,321 confirmed deaths, UP by 637 new deaths, and 2,947,272 confirmed recoveries, UP by 15,246 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 668,615 confirmed cases, 12,152 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,600 confirmed cases, 47 confirmed deaths, and 2,143 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,125 confirmed cases, 1,863 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  56. 2020 Monday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,308.46, UP 378.13 points (+1.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,799.72, UP 67.92 points (+0.60%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,431.28, UP 34.12 points (+1.00%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,937.70 per troy oz., DOWN -1.90 (-0.10%), SILVER is at $26.63 per troy oz., UP 0.023 (+0.19%), PLATINUM $923.90 per troy oz. DOWN -0.60 (-0.60%), and COPPER is at $2.93 # +0.00 (+0.00%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.43, DOWN -0.19 (-0.45%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.92 Chi-Com yuan. In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
  57.  2020 Monday D: Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers calls out the National Guard to Kenosha following a police shooting of a black suspect, 29-year-old Jacob Blake by a white police officer following a domestic violence incident on Sunday night.  At this time, the situation remains murky but what seems to be clear is that as Mr. Blake sought to enter his vehicle and leave the scene as the cops told him to stay led to his being shot seven times in the back as he tried to enter his car.  At this time, Mr. Blake is in intensive care and we hope that he lives but what is clear is that 125 members of the Wisconsin National Guard will be on scene in Kenosha tonight guarding infrastructure and maintaining the peace.  
  58. 2020 Monday E: Chi-Com ‘social media’ ap TikTok launches a lawsuit against the Trump administration for having issued an executive order forcing the ‘ap’ to shed its Chi-Com masters and to become American-owned.  We shall see where that goes.  Tonight is the first night of the RNC National Convention in various cities around the country.  Speakers tonight include Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, Donald J. Trump Jr., former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, State Representative Vernon Jones, D-GA, U.S. Army Nurse Johnson Ford, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Trump 2020 fundraiser, Charlie Kirk, Turning Point USA founder, and Kim Klacik, GOP candidate in Baltimore.   Also speaking are Mark and Patricia McCloskey, Democrat lawyers from St. Louis, MO,, Sean Parnell, GOP congressional candidate in Pennsylvania, Andrew Pollack, father of Meadow Pollack, slain in 2018 Parkland, Florida, high school shooting on Valentine’s Day, and Tanya Weinreis, a coffee shop owner in Montana who received a loan from the Paycheck Protection Program with which to keep her business open during the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic.    Herschel Walker, former NFL great and friend of the president for 38 years, spoke as well as Natalie Harp, a cancer survivor and right-to-try advocate who with help from President Donald J. Trump was able to survive a medical error and subsequent bone cancer.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Electric Light Orchestra released their third release, “On the Third Day,” on November 15, 1973.  This album did not do as well as the previous effort but such is life.  The lineup featured an expanded orchestra, all playing electrified instruments.  The lineup featured Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), Mike du Albuquerque (bass, backing vocals), Mike Edwards (cello), Mik Kaminski and Wilfred Gibson (violin), Ted Blight (cello), and another musician or two to round out the sound.  Although not as successful as the second album, the band was straining at the gills to deliver material to their managers.  This is a great album; one we encourage everyone to rush out and add to your collections- you will be glad you did.
