  57. 2016 Monday: At the University of Phoenix Stadium, #2 Alabama beats #1 Clemson 45-40 to win the College Football National Championship.  What an exciting game.  Elsewhere, in Baghdad, Iraq, jihadists affiliated with ISIS carry out a bombing attack on a marketplace which blows up at least 51 people and wounding numerous others.  The site ISIS assaulted was reported to be an ‘illegal casino,’ something the goody-two-shoes Islamists cannot tolerate- people having fun.  Meanwhile, protesters in Germany take to the streets to protest the thousands of sexual assaults that Muslim refugees allowed into the country by Chancellor Angela Merkel committed on New Year’s Eve, especially in Leipzig and Cologne.

  60. 2019 Friday: ISIS carries out a car bombing at a public marketplace in the town of Al-Qaim which kills two people outright and wounds another 25 or so.  The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.  Elsewhere, federal government employees miss their first paycheck due to the ongoing federal government shutdown.  At least 800,000 nonessential workers will go without their pay (although as soon as government reopens, the checks- with interest- flow into their bank accounts).
  61. 2020 Saturday: In the AFC Division Game, the Tennessee Titans blow out the Baltimore Ravens 28-12 to move to the AFC Championship Game while in the NFC Division Game, the San Francisco 49ers whoop the Minnesota Vikings 27-10.  Elsewhere, former New York City Michael Bloomberg says he’s ‘open to spending $1 billion to defeat President Donald J. Trump.’  What a guy.   Meanwhile, the Iranians admit they screwed up when they shot down an Ukrainian airliner flying out of Tehran on January 8 when they began launching missiles at U.S. bases in neighboring Iraq.  They fired antiaircraft artillery at the plane they thought was American or American cruise missiles coming in, killing all 176 people aboard the doomed craft. 
  62. 2021 Monday: A New York state attorneys group is moving to disbar “America’s Mayor” and President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, for his part in the ‘Storming the Capitol Building 2021” so-called ‘insurrection.’  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court nixes a ‘fast-track’ for all of President Trump’s election fraud cases.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues urging Vice President Mike Pence to utilize the 25th Amendment so he and the Cabinet can remove a ‘extremely dangerous president from office before he can cause further harm to the country.’  Not going to happen, “Mumbles,” not going to happen. Speaking of the senile House speaker, she has ONE ARTICLE of impeachment against the 45th president ready to go which Talk Radio GIANT Rush Limbaugh presumes to be the opening round in negotiations to get Trump out of office in exchange for no prosecutions against him or members of his family for all time provided he never runs again.  This could be true but we doubt President Trump will give in to his worst political enemy.
  63. 2021 Monday A: The jabbering mullahs in Tehran warn the world they have all sorts of missile bases along their coastline with all manner of weapons heretofore unseen in the history of the world, weapons that can defy the weapons of every other nation.  Bulls**t.  They use a lot of Styrofoam and paint to create the ‘illusion’ they have the best weapons in the world.  We say, “NUKE THEM.  NOW!”  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms deny forcible abortions and sterilizations of minority women in their country.  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM say they are following ‘more the Nazi-Fascist model’ than they are the one espoused by founder Mao Zedong and his brand of Marxism- Maoism.  Meanwhile, Beijing threatens a ‘counterstrike’ on the U.S. for defying their ‘blockade’ of Taiwan over the U.S. lifting restrictions on U.S.-Taiwan, aka Republic of China (the REAL China), relations.  Finally, the U.S. designates Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism and the Houthi rebels in Yemen as a TERRORIST GROUP.
  64. 2021 Monday B: In other foreign news, the Chi-Coms propaganda ministry slams President Donald J. Trump and the New York Stock Exchange over their delisting and holding accountable numerous Chi-Com firms in league with the Chi-Com military.  The Beijing mouthpieces claim that in doing so, the U.S. is ‘actually hurting itself through delisting these companies.’  Give us a break.  Wah, wah, wah.  Meanwhile, the outgoing U.S. Trade Adviser Robert Lighthizer urges the incoming ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden administration to maintain the tariffs on the Chi-Coms.  Sadly, we know “Pro-China Joe” will rip them off the moment he assumes office.
  65. 2021 Monday C: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden names ex-diplomat and former U.S. ambassador to Russia William Burns to head the Central Intelligence Agency.   Next, we learn that the theme of ‘Pro-China Joe’s’ Inauguration Day will be “AMERICA UNITED,” even as he won’t discourage House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi from impeaching President Trump again.  Speaking of Trump and things associated with Trump, the U.S. Army is investigating an officer who led a group to Washington, D.C., to protest the stolen election.  The officer being investigated is Captain Emily Rainey, a psy-ops warfare specialist stationed at Ft. Bragg.  Next, the PGA is canceling a contract between President Trump’s Bedminster Course and the organization, one that would have seen the 2022 PGA Championship played there.  Wow.
  66. 2021 Monday D: The U.S. Supreme Court rebuffed a bid to establish universal mail-in voting across the Lone Star State.  Next, following its ban on President Donald J. Trump and its participation in the war against Parler, Twitter’s shares drop by an astounding 7-percent.  Not good for them.  Even more interesting, noted Trump critic, German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that ‘President Trump’s eviction from Twitter is problematic.’  It’s okay for the Iranians to talk about killing everyone but President Trump sharing his mind is EVIL and must be stopped.  What a load of crap.  Good for you, Herr Chancellor.  Speaking of Twitter, after their San Francisco headquarters calls cops because there are a few people outside the facility protesting their actions against Trump, Jack Dorsey calls for police protection.  
  67. 2021 Monday E: Elsewhere in the world, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman is planning a city that won’t have automobiles for the ‘future beyond oil.’   Meanwhile, the most unpopular pontiff in modern times- Pope Francis- issues a decree permitting women greater roles in the church but still won’t permit priests to marry.  What a guy.  Elsewhere, the world’s biggest companies announce they will suspend donations to ALL U.S. lawmakers who voted AGAINST the certification of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and ‘Kooky Kamala’ Harris.  My, my, my- the cancel culture strikes again.   Finally, GOP Congressman Vernon Jones of Georgia warns ‘Pro-China Joe’ that impeaching Trump again is not going to heal the country.’
  68. 2021 Monday F: President Donald J. Trump will be in Texas today celebrating the construction of 400 miles of border security fencing and walls along the border with Mexico.  Meanwhile, the first lady of the United States Melania Trump roundly condemns the Capitol Hill violence that occurred this past Wednesday.   Elsewhere, as alarms continue being raised at the omnipotent power of an ever-growing BIG TECH, Parler says it’s going to sue Amazon.com for violations of U.S. antitrust laws.   Finally, the Capitol Hill Police Department names a new acting chief of police- Deputy Chief Yogananda Pittman.  Regarding the Capitol Hill cops failure to quell the riots of Wednesday, January 06, 2021, outgoing chief and fall guy for the debacle Chief Steven Sund says he sought help from local and federal law enforcement SIX times which should tell everyone the entire event was orchestrated and coordinated by the left. Finally, famed NFL football coach Bill Belichick is going to receive the Medal of Freedom, the highest award for a civilian.
  69. 2021 Monday G:  One year on from the first death of the infamous Chi-Vi, the People’s Republic of (Communist) China still won’t provide answers to the world.  Meanwhile, questions continue swirling around Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo as to WHY tens of thousands of precious COVID-19 vaccines- vaccines this POS begged for- are ending up in the garbage dumpsters across the state, unused, out-of-date, and spoiled.  Boy, would we love to see this POS wearing an orange jumpsuit doing time in a federal supermax penitentiary.   Still, we hear that Governor Cuomo and his dingbat buddy, Mayor Bill Di Blasio are down on their decrepit knees praying to their god, Karl Marx, that ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden will bail them out once he occupies the White House.  Let them suffer.  Elsewhere, Texas state officials are considering a secession movement.
  70. 2021 Monday H: B-I-G changes occurring at the Fox News Channel what with a reordering or demotion of long-time hosts with Martha MacCallum becoming the first casualty, demoted to daytime TV.  They are doing this because Newsmax is cleaning their clocks.  We know that everyone we know who watched FNC has abandoned the network and gone to Newsmax and OAN.  It’s NOT your hosts, Fox, it’s YOU telling them they can no longer talk about Donald Trump or the 2020 Presidential Election honestly.  Combined with far too many liberals across your network, you made your bed now sleep in it.   Elsewhere, Colin Powell says he’s ‘no longer a Republican.’  Note to Colin: you haven’t been a Republican in 20 flipping years.  Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Chad Wolf announces he is resigning his position.  The rats continue jumping off the ship.  Finally, Louisiana Democrat Congressman Benny Thompson says, ‘Republicans should be on the NO-FLY LIST.’  Wow.  Talk about unification!
  71. 2021 Monday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 90,724,811 confirmed cases, +719,024, 1,941,143, confirmed deaths, +9,761, and 50,167,081 confirmed recoveries, +281,801.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 22,708,005 confirmed cases, up 256,882 from yesterday’s reporting, 378,580 confirmed deaths, UP 2,049, and 9,900,635 confirmed recoveries, UP 49,981.

  73. 2021 Monday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,008.69, DOWN 89.28 points (-0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,036.43, DOWN 165.54 points (-1.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,799.61, DOWN 25.07 points (-0.66%).  The price of GOLD is $1,847.00 per troy oz., -3.80 (-0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $25.14 per troy ounce, -0.149 (-0.59%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,043.90 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.07%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, -0.0065 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.80 per troy oz, +13.80 (+0.58%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.13 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.  In other economic news, Staples offers $2.1 billion to buy Office Depot.  Still awaiting a reply.
  74. 2021 Monday L: Noted legal scholar Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that ‘once President Donald J. Trump leaves office, it is impossible to impeach him on anything after the fact.’  He also points out that there is not enough time for the Democrats and their RINO stooges to impeach the 45th president.  No wonder the Democrats want to see Newsmax sent packing along with One America News.  Meanwhile, liberal bigwigs are calling for the compilation of lists so that all personnel who worked for President Trump can be branded with the scarlet letter so they can never work again or participate in civil society.  What has happened to our country?
  75. 2021 Monday M: The worst governor in the history of California- the Loser-nator Arnold Schwarzenegger- says that President Trump is the worst president in the history of the country.  Arnold, go to perdition! Meanwhile, President Donald Trump awards Congressman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, the Congressional Medal of Freedom.  Elsewhere, freshman Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA, demands House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to stop delivery of China Daily newspaper to every congressional office.  WTF?  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they now say they might ‘let some of the World Health Organization investigators seeking info on the Xi Jinping Bat Flu entry into their totalitarian country.
  76. 2021 Monday N: Archaeologists in Mexico discover more than 100 mammoth skeletons in an excavation.  Meanwhile, two gorillas in the San Diego Zoo test positive for the Kung Flu.  Elsewhere, NASA extends missions to Jupiter and Mars through at least 2022 after seeing noteworthy progress in their exploration efforts.  We hope ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden won’t gut the space agency as he and his former boss did in 2009.  Next, an Idaho internet provider announces it’s going to block both Facebook and Twitter beginning on Wednesday.  Finally, more than 100,000 Americans along the Gulf Coast are without power as a feisty winter storm batters the area. 
  77. 2021 Monday O: New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo now is crying about the economic devastation affecting the Empire State, looking into the camera, telling the dwindling number of viewers who continue paying attention to this ignoramus, that ‘we must reopen or there will be nothing to reopen ever again.’  What the hell does this flipping POS think?  Governor Cuomo and his twin moron, NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio have ruined a great state and ruined a once-world-class city in their fight to defy President Trump.  They also have caused tens of thousands of COVID-19 vaccines to end up in the garbage.   Lock both of these slope-headed morons up.
  78. 2021 Monday P: End of the Night News- after having a good week last week, Bitcoin plummets by 20-percent, settling at $32,000 after being at $40,000 last week.   Speaking of losers, Twitter loses $5 billion in stock value after trashing Donald Trump and blaming him for the Antifa-caused riots on Capitol Hill last Wednesday.  Meanwhile, Abbott receives FDA clearance for a blood test that will help diagnose concussions faster than and less costly than brain scans.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One of the more interesting English bands is UFO, a band that formed in London in the late 1960s with Phil Mogg (vocals), Mick Bolton (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion).  One of the original hard rock-heavy metal bands, they paved the way for loads of other likeminded bands to follow.  Their first album, the self-titled, “UFO,” came out on July 15, 1970 and set the stage for what was to come.  For a debut album, it didn’t do well but such were the ways of record companies.  They might sign a band, toss them some coin, have them record an album as quickly as possible, throw out several singles to see if the fans would bite and alas, in the UK, it did not do well but in Germany, it did quite well.  This is a fascinating album for hard rock fans and we hope you will check it out as it definitely is worth owning.

TODAY IN HISTORY, MONDAY JANUARY 11, 2021

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Monday, January 11, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[ii] Sadly, Detective was a short-lived band but one that had the potential to be as legendary as Led Zeppelin, if only Disco was not trashing the airwaves.  You will find their three albums on: (1) Tuesday, 29-July-2014, (2) Thursday, 31-July-2014, and (3) Friday, 01-August-2014.  We hope you will seek them out.

V. 1942 Sunday: Reichskommissar Artur Seyss-Inquart proclaimed Dutch Nazi Anton Mussert leader of the Netherlands on this date. Meanwhile, on the Eastern Front, the 6th Panzer Division arrived at Aksai River. They paused there to permit 800 trucks bringing supplies for the Sixth Army trapped in Stalingrad to catch up to them. Once they did, they set off on their next goal, a dash to the Mishkova River where Soviet resistance would begin stiffening. Field Marshal Erich von Manstein was trying to communicate with Lt. Gen. Friedrich von Paulus in the doomed city but Soviet countermeasures made communications difficult. Coordinating the breakout became challenging.

  22. 1942 Sunday: Reichskommissar Artur Seyss-Inquart proclaimed Dutch Nazi Anton Mussert leader of the Netherlands on this date.   Meanwhile, on the Eastern Front, the 6th Panzer Division arrived at Aksai River.  They paused there to permit 800 trucks bringing supplies for the Sixth Army trapped in Stalingrad to catch up to them.   Once they did, they set off on their next goal, a dash to the Mishkova River where Soviet resistance would begin stiffening.   Field Marshal Erich von Manstein was trying to communicate with Lt.

Bush.  This occurred after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered a stop to the ongoing Florida recount thus giving both the state and the presidency to the Texas governor.  Speaking of Texas, the so-called ‘Texas Seven’- a band of seven incarcerated thugs breaks out of the John Connally Unit near Kenedy, Texas, and go on a rape, robbery, and murder spree.  They were on the lam until concerned civilians noticed them posing as ‘Christian missionaries’ and fingered them to the cops.  Eventually,  four of them were executed in Texas’ death house.
  43. 2001 Thursday: The Pentagon officially released a captured videotape jihadist thug POS Osama bin Laden in which the al-Qaida leader said the deaths and destruction achieved by the Sept. 11 attacks exceeded his “most optimistic” expectations.  About 10 years later, the Obama administration launched a raid into Pakistan that took the Islamist pig out.

  47. 2005 Tuesday: A European Union investigation into CIA activities on European soil- and elsewhere in the world- leads to allegations of the Central Intelligence Agency’s kidnapping and abductions of European citizens.  They contend the U.S. spy agency spirits the hapless individuals to secret black site prisons.  That damned President George W.

  49. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. Senate passes a bill that would increase automobile fuel standards for the first time in three decades.   Elsewhere, a USMC soldier is found guilty of killing an Iraqi soldier while the two were standing guard in Fallujah.  We are sure he must have a good reason for killing the man.

  54. 2012 Thursday: European Union finance ministers vote to give European Central Bank new powers to supervise Euro Zone’s banks.   Meanwhile, after the GOP announces to plans to challenge her nomination for U.S. secretary of state, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice withdraws her nomination.

  58. 2016 Tuesday: Much to the horror of American liberals, President-elect Donald J. Trump chooses Texas Governor Rick Perry to become his secretary of Energy.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Energy is bucking the Trump transition team by refusing to provide the names of its members who worked on the Obama climate change strategy.  Yet in 2020, with ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden appearing to be ‘incoming,’ the Dems are calling for UNITY.  Hypocrites.  Next, President-elect Donald J. Trump chooses Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke to become his secretary of the Interior.
  59. 2017 Wednesday: In Yemen, a Saudi-led airstrike on a Houthi rebel camp in the nation’s capital of Sana’a kills at least 30 Iranian-backed terrorists and wounds loads of others.  Light ‘em up!  Meanwhile, Palestinian militants fire a barrage of rockets into Israel.  The minister of defense said the Iron Dome took out two of the missiles while one went down in an open field.  Retribution soon to come.
  60. 2018 Thursday: The U.S. Senate voted 56-41 to end participation in the Saudi war in neighboring Yemen where Iranian-backed Houthi rebels are trying to overthrow the Arab nation.   Then, the Senate passed a unanimous resolution that Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman was 100-percent responsible for the murder of Saudi American journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
  61. 2019 Friday: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, announces the committee will return on Tuesday for a final impeachment vote which will then leave the whole charade up to Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-KY, in the Senate to proceed with an impeachment trial.  Some Democrat loudmouths demand that Sen. McConnell recuse himself because of his stated coordination with the White House.  What is it about the Dems that they are ALWAYS trying to stack the deck in their favor?  
  62. 2020 Sunday: In a strange twist of fate (yeah, right), reports continue surfacing that show ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s son Hunter did not report $400 thousand in cash given to him by none other than Burisma, the natural gas energy company in the Ukraine.  Speaking of Burisma, corruption, and Democrats, we now learn that POS Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff of California ALSO has problems with corruption scandals seeing as how he is linked to several corrupt Ukrainian and other foreign companies and oligarchs such as Igor Pasternak who donated vast sums of cash to the derelict congressman’s campaign fund.  Other companies to whom Congressman Schiff is tied are Black Rock and Franklin-Templeton.  Add this to Congressman Eric Swalwell, another California Democrat, and his ties to Beijing via schlepping Ministry of State Service female intelligence agent and you can easily see that whatever Democrats accuse others of doing is what they themselves are guilty of doing.   Speaking of corrupt Democrats, former staffer to New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, aka Andrew the Murderer, Lindsey Boylan claims the governor sexually harassed her off and on during the time in which, she worked for the dimwitted governor from March 2015 to October 2018.
  63. 2020 Sunday A: The NYPD launches an investigation into what is occurring in Brooklyn- two EMS units have been held up at gunpoint with medical supplies and equipment being stolen from them within one week of another.  Speaking of crime and medicine, the FBI warns the American people to be aware of scams surrounding distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines.   Elsewhere, health officials say a ‘twindemic’ is unlikely in that cases of the flu are down this year so a twin pandemic of flu and the Chi-Vi are highly unlikely.
  64. 2020 Sunday B: U.S. Congressman William “Bill” Pascrell, D-NJ 9th District, urges his master, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi NOT to seat 126 Republican congressmen all because they are defending President Trump in his fight against the rampant corruption that occurred in several battleground states around the country.  He feels they are unfit for service.  What will the senile speaker do?  Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, and Senator Tim Scott celebrate the life and times of the first black American to serve in Congress after the U.S. Civil War- Congressman Joseph Rainey, of South Carolina’s 1st House District.  When Senator Scott was Congressman Scott, he represented the same district.
  65. 2020 Sunday C: Moms for America is going to throw a Keep Christmas Rally and Celebration to push back on ever sectarian government’s drive to blot out Christianity.  We must drive every anti-Christian and anti-Semite out of office.   Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., at the Bus Tour for Trump Rally, My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell, blasts fascist governors around the country for using the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as an excuse for imposing harsh restrictions and draconian lockdowns on their citizens.  In addition to this, he also blasts election fraud and questions WHY the Fake News Media did NOT release the Hunter Biden laptop story prior to Election Day.  Elsewhere, in the state of Missouri, a man who once was a gangbanger- Darrion Cockrell- becomes the state’s 2021 Teach of the Year.  Congratulations!  (Mr. Cockrell is a physical-education teacher at Crestwood Elementary School).
  66. 2020 Sunday D: On the foreign front, Russia fires off four ballistic missiles in tests.  Meanwhile, the United Kingdom and the European Union are still working to make Brexit a reality even as the UK sends several patrol boats to protect English fishing waters from encroachment by EU fishing boats. Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy ends search for U.S. Navy sailor who purportedly went over the side of the USS Theodore Roosevelt into the waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean.  The sailor- 20-year-old Aviation Ordinanceman Airman Apprentice Ethan Goolsby hails from San Antonio, Texas.

  69. 2020 Sunday G: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 72,084,868 confirmed cases, +619,208, 1,610,265, confirmed deaths, +9,027, and 47,064,409 confirmed recoveries, +1,521,606.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 16,322,151 confirmed cases, up 164,818 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,058 confirmed deaths, UP 1,480, and 7,443,901 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,374.
  70. 2020 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,558,275 confirmed cases, 20,976 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,315 confirmed cases, 269 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 207,399 confirmed cases, 3,043 confirmed deaths (down from a week ago), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Maine- currently, they have 15,923 confirmed cases, 257 confirmed deaths, and 10,941 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 355,786 confirmed cases, 2,983 confirmed deaths, and 335,243 confirmed recoveries.  Regarding the Beijing Bug, leaders in the U.S. House and Senate continue trying to agree on a Chi-Vi relief bill but cannot hammer one out.  Week after week, these losers go through the motions trying to provide relief to the American people but never f**king do.  VOTE ALL OF THEM OUT OF OFFICE WHEN THEY COME UP FOR RE-ELECTION BEGINNING WITH DENTURE-WEARING NANCY ‘MUMBLES’ PELOSI!
  71. 2020 Sunday I:  Even though it’s Sunday, we understand that the Chi-Coms via their allies in Iran, Russia, and Canada- along with their bozos in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good which is why we encourage everyone to stick around and uncover what these dog-eating Chi-Coms and their partners in crime are up to today… One thing we learned today is that Columbia University accepted $1,000,000 from the Confucius Institute in Beijing.  While they claim it’s on the up-and-up, everyone knows they are taking Chi-Com money in exchange for access to research secrets.  MF-ers!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

A year later, the J. Geils Band released “Hotline” on September 09, 1975.  Once again, the band featured the same lineup of John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones).  As always, the band was roaring with power and the tunes here are phenomenal, especially our favorite, “Love-itis,” as in disease.   Although a fabulous live act, album sales varied from album to album but hey, if you love good rock and roll music and are depressed by the modern crap with which we are bombarded on a daily basis, then this band is one everyone must check out.  There is no comparison between bands of 40-50 years ago with the garbage they try to tell us is music now.  Maroon Five?  We piss on you and on Adam Levine.  Even U2 leaves much to be desired and they are from 30 years ago or more.  Please, check it out and give it a good listen- you will be so glad you did.  We guarantee it.

[i] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash. They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[ii] Sadly, Detective was a short-lived band but one that had the potential to be as legendary as Led Zeppelin, if only Disco was not trashing the airwaves. You will find their three albums on: (1) Tuesday, 29-July-2014, (2) Thursday, 31-July-2014, and (3) Friday, 01-August-2014. We hope you will seek them out.

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022. Please stay tuned.

[iv] Not sure when we will begin promoting the Amboy Dukes and Ted Nugent but we hope to do so within the next decade. Please stay tuned.

[v] 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.

[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] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years. We hope you will still be with us.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[ix] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011. This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[x] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011. Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. We thank you.
