  59. 2020 Sunday B: Failed Democratic candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael “Peewee” Bloomberg announces he is going to dump $100,000,000 into Florida to help win it for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Wow, how do we apply for some of those greenbacks?  Ah, well, polls show that Biden-Harris lead Trump-Pence across the nation by a comfortable margin of 51%-46%.  Speaking of President Trump, he is blitzing Nevada today meeting with all sorts of groups and speaking before large groups of people.  Still, Dems claim he is going to lose.   Elsewhere, House Homeland Security Committee Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-LA, says he sent a subpoena to acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf demanding he appear before the committee to answer questions on September 17.  Acting Secretary Wolf says he ‘will be happy to do so but first, he has to undergo the confirmation process so he can sit before them as the DHS director.
  60. 2020 Sunday C: The Chi-Coms are sniveling and whining that ‘President Trump is the fomenter of regional unrest in Asia.’  Wah, wah, wah, no wonder the Chinese Communist Party is supporting the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and Willie Brown’s ‘mattress,’ Sen. Kamala Harris.  The Chi-Coms are supporting Biden, the Russians are supporting Biden, the Iranians are supporting Biden, the Cubans are supporting Biden, hell, every country that hates the United States is supporting “Pro-China Joe” Biden- what does that tell you?  Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says ‘legislation is required’ to negotiate a free-trade deal with the European Union whom the PM says is threatening to blockade the Irish Sea.  WTF?  Finally, the western United States continues burning, homes are destroyed, people are dying all because the three governors of California, Oregon, and Washington won’t do proper forestry management.  Read tomorrow’s post in which, Chef Gervais says it’s because their retirement programs for public employees suck up approximately 90% of each state’s budget so it’s burn baby burn.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next ‘Jethro Tull’ album to come out was “A,” which hit record store shelves on September 01, 1980.  Today’s offering is “A (A La Mode) 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition” which came out on February 17, 2021.  Undisputed leader of Jethro Tull- Ian Anderson- meant this album to be a SOLO effort but record companies being what they are, said, ‘whoa, hold on there, we want this to be the next Jethro Tull album and thus it was.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention) and Mark Craney (drums and percussion).  Ian Anderson said he never meant to replace the lineup of musicians from the earlier years but since this was a SOLO album and since the record company said it ‘must be a Jethro Tull album,’ the classic lineup was out the door and gone- even though some such as Barriemore Barlow were going to leave anyway due to changes in musical direction.  Ah, well, it is what it is, please seek it out and give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it because of all the extras added for the diehard fans to enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2020

Democratic Socialists use Critical Race Theory as a rusty razor blade with which, to tear the fabric of America asunder which is why we must re-elect President Trump so we can stop it

ENDNOTES:


[i] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[ii] We began promoting the music of Foghat, one of the all-time greatest rock bands to explode out of England, beginning on Monday, 18-February-2018 through Monday, 19-March-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this celebrated group out by checking out the blog posts on those dates.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do, we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[iv] 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.

[v] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vii] Tupac Shakur?  It could be 40 years before we begin promoting the music of rappers.  Please join us every day for that glorious day- you will be glad you did but NO Eminem. Fuck him- he hates his mother.

[viii] Many educated people believe that these so-called migrants are the advance waves of a Muslim invading army designed to bring Western Civilization down by overrunning Europe.  It must stop and it has to stop; otherwise, the world will transform into something it was never intended to be: Sharia-ruled slave states with despots at the top.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Famed guitarist Michael Schenker decided that he would record an album of songs that influenced him early on in his career and brought together a variety of musicians to help him knock out 13 amazing tunes.  “By Invitation Only” came out on June 25, 2011 and featured not only the blazing guitarist but a who’s who of rockers such as bassists Tony Franklin (The Firm), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Dio, Foreigner), among others as well as drummers such as Mike Baird (Journey), Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio), Aynsley Dunbar (Journey, Jefferson Starship), among others.  Most of the tunes are recorded as power trios with the exception of one in which, a saxophone solo was essential.  Say what you will but it appears that Mr. Schenker NEVER sleeps (must be some good stuff).  Seek him out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
