  13. 1915 Saturday: The Austro-Hungarians with German reinforcements begin driving the Russians back in the Carpathians.   The Russians had a unique plan that if they could penetrate through this harsh range of mountains, they might be able to knock the Hapsburgs out of the war.  Although not the strongest member of the Central Powers, the core Austrian, and Hungarian troops and not their Slavic allies were up to the task.
  14. 1916 Monday: During World War I, the horrendous battle of Verdun continues as the French mount counterattacks against recent German domains.  The city of Verdun is a fortress surrounded by a series of fortresses (sort of like Dien Bien Phu would be decades later though not as fortified) and the Germans believe if they can punch through they might be able to bring France to its knees, possibly knock her out of the war for good.

  17. 1919 Thursday: The victorious allies hammering out the post-World War I peace in Paris, France, had sent South African General Jan Smuts to Budapest where a new Soviet-style regime had seized power.  The idea was to negotiate a peace between east and west but it was failure, the communists had no intention of participating in anything.  All Western diplomatic missions begin pulling out and American wives of Hungarian citizens are to leave with the British.  Things are in an uproar in Eastern Europe thanks to the NEW Soviet Union.  
  18. 1922 Monday: In the USSR, Josef Stalin becomes general secretary of the Communist Party.  Lenin, suffering from poor health did not want to appoint his far more murderous comrade Stalin to this post but Stalin was ‘caretaker’ for the ailing revolutionary.  Soon, Stalin would begin consolidating his power.

  62. 2017 Monday: Terrorists plant a bomb on the St. Petersburg Metro train that kills 11 and wounds numerous others; the authorities are able to defuse a second bomb before it can go off.  Elsewhere, Somali pirates hijack another Indian-flagged vessel.  What the hell is wrong with India?  Put security on your ships.  Meanwhile in the 79th NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Game, North Carolina defeats Gonzaga by a final score of 71-65.  Congratulations!

  65. 2020 Friday: Acting U.S. Secretary for the Navy Thomas Modly fires the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt due to his lack of military discipline as well as situational awareness around the issue of security.  Captain Brett Crozier- playing politics to the max- announces that 100-plus members of his crew have shown positive for China’s COVID-19 lab-engineered virus.  He ordered the ship- after spending a week’s time in Vietnam- to put into port in Guam where approximately 3,000 members of the 5,000-person crew will go into isolation.  Captain Crozier, instead of discreetly alerting top Navy brass about the problem, put the information into a memo, one he copied to 20-to-30 people, one of whom handed it over to the news media in the captain’s hometown of San Francisco[viii].  The information alerted the nation’s enemies that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt was NOT battle-ready.  WTF?  Meanwhile, COVID-19 statistics at the beginning of the day for the planet come in at 1,026,974 confirmed cases with 53,975 confirmed deaths.  In the United States, the numbers stand at 245,573 confirmed cases what with 6,058 confirmed deaths.   As for the DOW Jones Industrial Average, it was down early in the day by 415.82 points sitting at 21,000.50 points at 8:00 A.M. PDT.  Late in the day, President Trump fired Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community ‘watchdog,’ most likely over all the FISA abuses that occurred in the plot to remove the 45th president for being a ‘Russian agent,’ since proven to be nothing more than an attempted coup.  Good riddance, you POS.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Age can never keep a good band down and UFO came roaring back three years after “The Monkey Puzzle” with “The Visitor,” which came out on June 02, 2009.  Joining vocalist Phill Mogg are longtime UFO veterans Andy Parker (drums), Paul Raymond (keyboards, vocals, and perhaps one of the hardest working musicians in all of rock), Vinnie Moore (guitars), and Peter Pichl (bass).  Folks, all we can say is that many bands don’t age well but these guys- Christ, they have been around far longer than lots of other bands.  Other than the Rolling Stones who have the all-time record for longevity (must be because they sold their souls for rock-and-roll), UFO has been around far longer than Led Zeppelin, the Kinks, the Who, the Faces, and many, many others so what the heck are you waiting for?  Seek this one out and make it a part of your listening day.

  56. 2021 Friday A: And so it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’   Questioning for what, pray tell?  Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.  Next, Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis tells Newsmax TV that ‘this impeachment is no different’ and that it’s an ‘abuse of the U.S. Constitution.’  Meanwhile, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax TV that the ‘D.C. media has switched from the news to advocacy for all left-wing causes.’  Rudy Giuliani believes it’s all a scheme to prevent #45 from running for office again.  Finally, also to Newsmax TV, Dick Morris- famed political strategist and consultant- says that ‘impeachment and the 25th Amendment are watering down the presidency.’  NO- the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the Democrats and the RINOS are trying to replace the presidency with a parliamentary system in which the party in power chooses who will be the figurehead.
  57. 2021 Friday B: New York State news- a new bill in Albany would make it illegal for New Yorkers to own or buy body armor.  Why?  Elsewhere in New York City, we now learn that thanks to the criminal mismanagement by Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and addle-brained NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, more than 372,000 private businesses have been destroyed in the Big Apple, never to return, many of them in professional foodservice and hospitality. 
  58. 2021 Friday C: Due to ‘security threats’ in Washington, D.C., the Inauguration Day rehearsal for ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden has been pushed back to Monday. We learn that J-Lo and Lady Gaga are going to be among the left-wing performers celebrating the ‘victory’ of the incoming senile 46th ‘president.’  Next, according to Rush Limbaugh, the feds are rushing 25,000 troops into Washington, D.C. to prevent against the expected (Antifa-caused) violence on Wednesday, January 20.  (According to the talk show mega-giant, this is more troops than are currently station in BOTH Iraq and Afghanistan).  Speaking of the riots, the FBI reports that the Capitol Hill mobs planned to assassinate leaders.  Again, this sounds like Antifa and BLM human garbage, not Trump supporters.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden chooses former FDA Chief David Kessler to head Operation Warp Speed. 
  59. 2021 Friday D: In a peculiar move, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, a Republican, apologizes to black Tulsans for having opposed the certification of “President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Why?  What was racist about questioning the certification?  Dimwit. Next, the media appears to have twisted the remarks of Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, in suggesting a delay on Biden’s certification.   
  60. 2021 Friday E: Elsewhere, a new poll shows that a vast majority of Republicans and swing state voters favor hiring U.S. workers before hiring illegal aliens.  Next, the Wyoming Republican Party is unhappy with Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of their own, who was among the 10 RINO Republicans to vote for the SECOND IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
  61. 2021 Friday F: Fossilized ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces his COVID-19/Stimulus Plan: first, $20 billion for a national vaccination program.  Second, $50 billion for expanded testing, treatment, and tracing programs.  Third, $2,000 stimulus checks for all illegal aliens and American citizens.  Fourth and final, $15 minimum wage for federal entry level jobs.  Economist Stephen Moore says that the final peg of Beijing Joe’s stimulus plan will cost ‘4 million additional American jobs.’  WTF?  Next, the U.S. Secret Service is telling its officers in the run-up to Inauguration Day to remain ‘professional’ and ‘non-partisan.’  Meanwhile, the IRS announces it’s behind on 7 million tax returns from last year all because of COVID-19.
  62. 2021 Friday G: Russia cites the U.S. withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty as its reason for leaving the agreement.  In Great Britain, it would appear that Mask Sharia is on the way there as the British government says, ‘people may have to wear masks forever.’  Wow.  Coming soon to a country near you?  Elsewhere, Dunkin’ Donuts has created a new biodegradable straw.  Congratulations.  Next, a Mickey Mantle baseball card sold for $5.2 million setting an all-time record.  Elsewhere, Joanne Roberts, widow of Mr. Rogers, dies at age 92.  Meanwhile, President Trump plans to hold an event as outgoing president on Inauguration Day at same time senile Old Joe is scheduled to place his quivering hand atop a Bible.
  63. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 93,275,676 confirmed cases, +424,993, 2,000,905, confirmed deaths, +12,615, and 55,500,681 confirmed recoveries, +271,674.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 23,489,378 confirmed cases, up 108,386 from yesterday’s reporting, 390,378 confirmed deaths, UP 1,434, and 10,262,463 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,136.
  64. 2021 Friday I: 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: 2,898,041 confirmed cases, 32,291 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 318 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 288,127 confirmed cases, 3,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Idaho: currently, they have 153,506 confirmed cases, 1,593 confirmed deaths, and 69,460 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 535,049 confirmed cases, 3,910 confirmed deaths, and 447,076 confirmed recoveries.   
  65. 2021 Friday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,814.26, DOWN 177.26 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,998.50, DOWN 114.14 points (-0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.25, DOWN 27.29 points (-0.72%).  The price of GOLD is $1,827.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.036 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.03%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.001 (-0.03%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,395.10 per troy oz, -28.20 (-1.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.04 per barrel, -0.32 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Hong Kong dollars equals 7.75.  In other economic news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says the government ‘declared martial law by imposing the harsh COVID-19 lockdowns on the American people.’  How right you are, sir!
  66. 2021 Friday K: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, says that the Mueller probe into Trump-Russia collusion- Crossfire Hurricane- was ‘the most incompetent’ and ‘most corrupt’ investigation ever conducted by the FBI and the Department of Justice.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Vice President-elect “Kooky Kamala” Harris on the phone.  The incoming VP says she hopes for a ‘peaceful transition of power.’  Next, NY prosecutors drag former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in to answer questions about the 45th president’s finances.    Speaking of losers like Michael Cohen, Lt. Gov. Duncan of the Peach State snivels to reporters that the ‘Georgia statehouse is absolutely less safe now because of Donald Trump.’  Lt. Gov. Duncan- you should not have worked to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com masters who now are YOUR masters.
  67. 2021 Friday L: Currently, the feds are investigating 37 people for their part in the deaths that occurred during the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist, says, ‘there will be prosecutions for ALL House members who aided the (Antifa/Black Lives Matter) ‘Trump mob’ in storming the building.  We guess this means that YOU, Madam Speaker, will stand at the head of the line seeing as how YOU and ONLY YOU are in charge of the Capitol Hill PD.  Steven Sund, outgoing Capitol Hill police chief begged for help on at least SIX occasions with no help coming which means YOU stopped help from coming which means BLOOD is on YOUR HANDS.  We await YOUR prosecution! 
  68. 2021 Friday M: President Donald J. Trump orders U.S. Military Command for the Middle East to incorporate Israel into its organization so as to hasten Arab-Israeli military cooperation in defending against the Iranian scum.   Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook says that ‘Parler might make it back online provided they do something about moderating (censoring) content.  Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections.  Finally, Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas rips ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his plagiarizing yet again someone else’s work- the COVID-19 Relief Bill. 
  69. 2021 Friday N: Elsewhere, the Atlanta Falcons hire Tennessee Titans OC Arthur Smith as their next head coach.   Note- we would love to see Matt Ryan make it to another super bowl.    Speaking of the NFL, two games tomorrow in the Divisional Round- L.A. Rams @ Green Bay Packers at 1:35 P.M. and Baltimore
  70. Ravens @ the Buffalo Bills @ 5:15 P.M.  Then on Sunday, we have two more games- Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs @ 12:05 P.M. and Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints @ 3:40 P.M.
  71. 2021 Friday O: Here are the results for tonight’s massive Mega Millions Draw #1625 with a pot of around $725 million at stake: 03, 11, 12, 38, 43, and Mega 15.  Out of 643,493 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,225,193.  Meanwhile, Alex Azar, Health and Human Services secretary offers his resignation, citing the Capitol Hill Riots as his reason for leaving the administration.   Elsewhere, we learn today that Bill Gates of Microsoft fame is the largest owner of private farmland in the United States with 242,000 acres.  Finally, in the waning days of the Trump administration, an asteroid the size of the Empire State Building, about 4.4 million miles from the Earth which is about 18 times the average distance between our planet and the moon.
  72. 2021 Friday P: The government of Morocco awards President Donald J. Trump the Order of Mohammad, the nation’s highest decoration, for his work in creating a framework of peace for Arab nations and Israel.  The ceremony occurred at the White House in a private ceremony.  Congratulations, Mr. President.  Let’s see if your successor keeps the framework of the Abraham Accords in place or tosses them on the rubbish heap and returns to brown-nosing the Palestinians.  Elsewhere, One America News reports growing evidence that foreign nations such as communist China interfered in our elections, NOT just in the 2020 Presidential Election but also in several state elections.  WHY aren’t the liberals braying about ‘ELECTION INTERFERENCE?’  Because we believe Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the Democratic Party and among the RINO wing of the GOP conspired with them to deny President Trump his much-deserved second term.   Meanwhile, Norway reports 11 deaths connected to the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Once again, UFO went into the studio and delivered another powerhouse effort- “Force It”- on July 15, 1975.  The lineup featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Michael Schenker (guitars), and Pete Way (bass).  Famed bassist for Ten Years After- Leo Lyons- was the producer while his band mate, Chick Churchill played keyboards, the first time ever on a UFO record.  The cover was somewhat suggestive and created a buzz more so in the United States than anywhere else in the world and added to album sales.  “Shoot-Shoot” and “Let It Roll” became fan favorites in their live shows which is enough for us to say: seek this one out NOW-you will be glad you did.  Enjoy!

333. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2020

U. 1942 Saturday A: The Soviet high command at STAVKA continues demanding speedy deployment of additional troops, striking towards the Don in the hope of cutting off German Army Group A in its entirety rather than just maintaining and strengthening the iron ring around Stalingrad and the immediate German and other Axis troops in the cauldron. The Russians are stretching their forces thin which will enable Field Marshal Erich von Manstein and the relief force he is assembling to make good headway early in December.

  56. 2015 Saturday:  Following the recent shooting at the Planned Parenthood ‘chop shop’ in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains President Vicki Cowart promised to reopen the ‘women’s reproductive rights center soon,’ the place where babies are dismantled in the womb.  Meanwhile, Dr. Ben Carson meets with Syrian refugees in Jordan as he swings through the Middle East.   
  57. 2016 Monday: President-elect Donald J. Trump chooses Representative Tom Price, R-GA, to be his Health and Human Services secretary.  Mr. Trump announces he is set to meet with former Governor Mitt Romney tomorrow in his quest to discover the perfect fit for U.S. secretary of state.  That should be interesting.   
  58. 2017 Tuesday: In the U.S. Senate, the Budget Committee passes President Donald J. Trump’s tax cut plan, one Democrats screech and wail is ‘tax cuts for the rich,’ but which will benefit John and Jane Q. Public by reducing their tax burden.  Meanwhile, problematic as ever, the North Koreans launch an intercontinental ballistic missile test that travels about 600 miles until it goes down in the Sea of Japan.

  61. 2020 Saturday:  Sadly, Chi-Com/Democratic Party-backed anti-Thanksgiving protests continue in various parts of the country with statues being defaced or torn down and businesses destroyed.  It is time for police to do this duty and to begin cracking down on this socialist-communist scum.  Meanwhile, we learn that 77-percent of Americans believe that in order for government to scoop up U.S. citizens’ online data, they first must get a warrant.  This is NOT the People’s Republic of China.    Next, we learn that the Trump administration fired 11 members of the defense advisory board.  We also learn that both the Iran and the Chi-Coms provided aid to the Democratic Party in general and to the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden in particular during the campaign.  Speaking of Iran, they are sniveling that Israel whacked their nuclear scientist.  Oh, boohoo.  The Trump administration is slapping additional sanctions on nations helping the Iranian missile program.
  62. 2020 Saturday A: A former aid to Governor Andrew “Murderer” Cuomo says the New York failed governor is trying to ‘milk his 15 minutes of fame.’  We agree with this viewpoint.  The man is a hack.    Next, Carter Page is seeking $75 million in a lawsuit from the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice for wrongly surveilling him and for making him the fall guy in their plot to destroy Donald Trump.   Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court agrees to take up the 2020 Census case, the one in which, the Trump administration sought NOT to count illegal aliens, something every other country on the face of the Earth would NEVER do.  You do not count border jumpers as U.S. citizens.
  63. 2020 Saturday B: Rep. James Clyburn, D-SC, the man who singlehandedly delivered the black vote to (racist) “Pro-China Joe” Biden (via using Chi-Com money or so we allege) is now begging ‘president-elect’ Joe Biden to put some black folks in his Cabinet and not just white guys and Jews.  What more proof do you need that former Vice President Joe Biden is a RACIST?  He is considering making Cindy McCain the next ambassador to the United Kingdom.  We don’t see any black folks, Joe!  Talking about Mr. Biden, we now know that DARK MONEY- an issue Democrats are always wailing about- most likely helped push Biden across the finish line- we have been saying this all along.  Elsewhere, the United States- working with Central American nations- has arrested at least 700 criminal MS-13 thugs.    Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is demanding Venezuela release six wrongly convicted Citgo executives from prison and send them back to the U.S.
  64. 2020 Saturday C: POWs languishing in Gitmo are hopeful that a Biden-Harris administration will free them from prison.  Elsewhere, Pfizer is getting ready to ship its COVID-19 vaccines to the United States and commence distribution.   Since we are talking about the Chi-Com virus, let’s look at the stats for today:
  65. 2020 Saturday E: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, let us present to you the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s hypocritical closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 62,094,127 confirmed cases, +593,035, 1,449,709, confirmed deaths, +9,203, and 37,750,055 confirmed recoveries, +474,550.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 13,351,024 confirmed cases, UP 168,297 from yesterday’s reporting, 269,562 confirmed deaths, UP 1,239, and 6,528,128 confirmed recoveries, UP 62,077.
  66. 2020 Saturday F: 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: 1,194,584 confirmed cases, 19,105 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 17,796 confirmed cases, 238 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 165,230 confirmed cases, 2,828 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Mississippi- currently, they have 149,940 confirmed cases, 3,779 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- we guess it is what it is.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 334,789 confirmed cases, 2,854 confirmed deaths, and 321,857 confirmed recoveries.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was a mind-altering experience.  Absolutely amazing to be sure.

[ii] 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.

[iii] See the preceding footnote.

[iv] 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.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[v] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point.

[vi] We began offering albums by this veteran Canadian American rock band on Friday, 25-May-2012 until the final day of Sunday, 17-June-2012.  We encourage everyone to check out the music of this group as they are still rocking to this day with original vocalist John Kay at the helm.

  54. 2020 Monday:  Following on last week’s announcement by Pfizer of a COVID-19 vaccine, 90-percent effective, Moderna announces that its own vaccine- one that is 94.5-percent effective- is ready to go.  New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo threatens the Trump administration with lawsuits if the vaccine does not come to his state and soon.  After receiving all manner of help from the Trump administration earlier in the year, the dingbat governor turned around and attacked President Donald J. Trump on his alleged ‘lackluster response’ to the Chinese Virus.  This guy is such a POS, he should be on trial charged with thousands of counts of needless deaths because had he not sent Wuhan Flu-infected spreaders into rest homes across the state, thousands of people would still be alive today.  Meanwhile, politics continues on and on as lowlife scumbags such as Dr. Tony Fauci, Governor Mike DeWine, and former Governor Asa Hutchinson all attack Trump for not bringing in the Biden transition team.  Wow.
  55. 2020 Monday A: The more the United States learns about the corrupt Dominion Voting System out of our northern neighbor Canada, the angrier millions of Americans are becoming.  The sad fact that 33 states use this easily hacked system with its servers in Germany and vote tabulators in Barcelona, Spain, the more we learn that Canada is NOT our friend.  IF President Trump survives what the little cross-dresser Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his father one of the Rolling Stones as his mother was a groupie in 1978-1979, we must cut the Canadians out of any cooperation between our country and theirs.  Some of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe that what Canada has done to us- interfering in our politics- is an act of war and that we should nuke the living hell out of them.  – Chef Olaf Bologolo.
  56. 2020 Monday B: SEC Chairman Jay Clayton is stepping down early.  Meanwhile, although Fake News Media continues reporting that the Trump campaign has given up fighting for the Keystone State, Newsmax contributor and presidential strategist Dick Morris says this is ‘bogus,’ that the campaign is fighting in Pennsylvania to stop the theft of the election.  Elsewhere, ‘president-elect’ “Pro-China Joe” Biden calls on Congress to pass a sweeping new Chi-Vi relief package and attempts to take credit for the new COVID-19 vaccines developed by both Pfizer and Moderna.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump hints at support for a primary challenger to Ohio’s Republican Governor Mike DeWine, a POS RINO who has done whatever he can to thwart the 45th president.  The man is no better than John Kasich was, a piece of pond scum who would cut his own party’s throat if it meant liberal news media would love him.  Other problems exist in Georgia, a state controlled by Republicans but seemingly doing the dirty work of the Democrats.
  57. 2020 Monday C: The Chi-Coms and 14 other nations signed a massive trade deal on Sunday that will bring more than 2.5 billion people into a trade pact headed by Beijing, one that excludes the United States.  Member countries include: People’s Republic of China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.  Like the Chi-Coms’ Belt and Road Initiative, this is a way by which, the corrupt communist regional power is attempting to become a global superpower, tying nations together- including allies of the U.S.- into a tight web of interconnectivity and one with which, they hope they can destroy the United States, especially IF President Trump is able to pull a victory out of the fire.
  58. 2020 Monday D: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 54,678,159 confirmed cases, +493,801, 1,321,403, confirmed deaths, +6,499, and 35,098,656 confirmed recoveries, +267,664.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 11,200,491 confirmed cases, up 150,340 from yesterday’s reporting, 250,003 confirmed deaths, UP 672, and 5,957,635 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,366.  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: 1,040,733 confirmed cases, 18,277 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,619 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and last week at this time 12,083 confirmed recoveries but no updates today.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 135,433 confirmed cases, 2,638 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Alabama, currently, they have 219,232 confirmed cases, 3,249 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 324,755 confirmed cases, 2,735 confirmed deaths, and 313,643 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Brazil: they have 5,876,740 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 166,067 confirmed deaths and 5,322,466 confirmed recoveries.
  59. 2020 Monday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,950.44, UP 470.63 points (+1.60%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,924.13, UP 94.84 points (+0.80%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,626.91, UP 41.76 points (+1.16%).  Price of GOLD: $1,887.70 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.83 per troy oz., +0.028 (+0.11%).  Price of PLATINUM: $928.20 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.88%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,345.10 per troy oz., +15.40 (+0.66%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.22 per #, +0.0015 (+0.05%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.42, +0.08 (+0.19%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.58 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.82 Afghan afghani.
  60. 2020 Monday F: (14) Minnesota Vikings, 19 (4-5) @ Chicago Bears, 13 (5-5) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

And so it occurred- Lou Gramm abandoned Foreigner to its fate, partly to save himself and partly to achieve success on his own.  Foreigner, which now consisted of Johnny Edwards (vocals), Mick Jones (guitars), Dennis Elliott (drums/percussion), and Rick Wills (bassist)- along with a legion of backing vocalists and keyboardists entered the studio and recorded their next effort, “Unusual Heat.” Released on June 14, 1991, it tanked..  Following this album being a commercial failure- hitting #117 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, there would be wholesale changes in lineup.  Ah, well, every band that has fiery chemistry- which makes them a top live act (or made) eventually combusts at the seams and so Foreigner would.  Still, completists and archivists like us want to own every scrap, every shred of music produced wants to own it and so we do and hope you will, too.  There are always incredible moments on any album and this one is no different so seek it out, give it a listen, and add it to your collection- you can thank us later.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] When we promoted the music of Fleetwood Mac, we should have shared the music of Chicken Shack in the same way we should have tied the music of UFO in with it seeing as how musicians from Chicken Shack joined both bands at later times.

[ii] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011.  Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.

[iii] We look forward to doing the music of UFO as well as of the Michael Schenker Group within the next year or two.  We hope you will join us when we do.

[iv] It’s a Beautiful Day is one of the all-time great San Francisco rock bands.  We began promoting them on Thursday, August 25, 2011 through Monday, August 29, 2011 and again on Tuesday, February 04, 2014 through Wednesday, February 05, 2014.  We encourage everyone to check their discography out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] 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.

[vi] This is a great song from the “Walls and Bridges” album that everyone must seek out and consider adding to their collection.  We promoted this album on Sunday, 12-25-2016.  We hope you will seek it out. 

[vii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point.

[viii] We began promoting this famed San Francisco rock band on Friday, March 25, 2011 through Monday, April 04, 2011 and again from Tuesday, August 20, 2013 through Monday, September 02, 2013.  Please, seek the albums out featured in the blog posts on those dates. 

[ix] Both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama waged war on U.S. fighting men and women which was not right.  We must return to fighting wars the way we did from Vietnam backward to the Spanish-American War.  We cannot prosecute soldiers for fighting a soulless enemy, one that we definitely need to kill using any means imaginable.

[x] Like many of the Democrats, Charlie Rangel is a perfect example of the corruption that permeates that party.  Everyone knew for decades that Congressman Rangel was a crooked POS yet it took them far too long to get his ass out of Congress.

[xi] This guy is one of the big purveyors of fake news and should be doing tough time in prison.

U. 1942 Thursday: The first troop ships sail out of Scotland, bound for Vichy French territory in Algeria and at the port city of Oran. The Allies were underway with driving the Axis out of North Africa. On the Eastern Front, fighting in Stalingrad continues to rage as the Germans are in a position to seize the Red October and Barricades factories while the other tractor factory also is within their grasp. According to historian Geoffrey Jukes, the toll is horrendous with the Germans losing one full division every five days or less while Russian units- 37th Guards, 308th and 193rd Infantry Divisions of the 82nd Army could field little more than two hundred men.

  60. 2020 Thursday A: Tonight is the final debate between candidates Donald J. Trump and “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Ahead of the debate, the president releases excerpts from an interview he did with Leslie Stahl of “60 Minutes” fame, leading her network to go ballistic.  He points out that the difference between his interview with the decrepit, aging newswoman and the one his opponent did with another interviewer was like night and day.  Why these people have so much hate toward the current president is beyond many people’s comprehension.  Speaking of President Trump, Rasmussen says the commanding lead of 12 points or more that “Pro-China Joe” Biden held as little as two weeks ago is now down to three points.  Not looking good for the Democrats. 
  61. 2020 Thursday B: Facebook’s little Mark Zuckerberg and his clone Jack Dorsey at Twitter (aka ‘Shitter’) receive subpoenas to appear before the Senate and to answer questions as to why they are such left-wing POS who believe they can control the flow of information.  They have allowed every hateful piece of disinformation on President Donald J. Trump to appear uncensored but anyone talking about “Pro-China Joe” Biden or his crackhead son, Hunter, you get ‘disappeared.’  This BS must stop.

ZZ. 2017 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump addresses the United Nations for the first time informing the decrepit body of thugs, dictators, scumbags, and murderers that ‘if North Korea threatens the United States they will be wiped out.’ Thunderous applause at this blog but the UN was shocked beyond belief. NO one other than a Russian strongman had ever said this about a fellow member. Trump would also blast Iran which caused Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to blast right back at the American president. Oh, we are so afraid… (how’s Qassim Soleimani doing these days?)

  55. 2020 Saturday:  Already tensions are growing as to whom will replace Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.  This is what most of the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe: after what the Democrats and the RINOS have put you through what with the false claims of Russian collusion, impeachment, and roadblocks at every turn, nominate the replacement on Monday and go for it.  As for quavering GOP senators, do you want to go down as a FIGHTER and lose your seat or as a COLLABORATIONIST and perhaps lose your seat anyway?  States with messed-up elections systems such as California and Maine must contest these bogus systems at the Supreme Court and the only way we can win is with a strong conservative on the court.  Republicans, do your duty as you know the Democrats would not waver in doing theirs and in fact would hasten it as quickly as possible.   President Trump is down in North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is at home in his basement.  Elsewhere, a shooting at a party with 100 revelers or more in Buffalo, New York claims the life of one partygoer and injures four others. Speaking of SCOTUS, Fox News Channel reports (erroneously, in our view) that voters trust “Pro-China Joe” Biden on picking Supreme Court nominees by a whopping 52 percent to 45 percent for Donald Trump.  Yup, sure they do…sure they do…
  56. 2020 Saturday A: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 30,588,989 confirmed cases, +298,198, 953,482, confirmed deaths, +5,565, and 20,832,830 confirmed recoveries, +209,802.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,819,709 confirmed cases, up 8,266 from yesterday’s reporting, 201,735 confirmed deaths, UP 189, and 3,689,081 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,616.  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: 781,436 confirmed cases, 14,912 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,348 confirmed cases, 120 confirmed deaths, and 4,394 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 85,583 confirmed cases, 2,130 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Hampshire- currently, they have 7,920 confirmed cases, 438 confirmed deaths, and 7,164 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Chris Sununu for your state’s honesty in this regard.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 183,602 confirmed cases, 1,226 confirmed deaths, and 130,024 confirmed recoveries.
  57. 2020 Saturday B:  here we are, a brand-new day, let’s see what the Chi-Com puppets, the Democratic Party have done today…stick around and find out…speaking of the Chi-Coms, President Trump is going to ban both TikTok and WeChat, two Chi-Coms from the app store.  Anything Chi-Com MUST go.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On October 12, 1989, the Move and Jeff Lynne released a greatest hits package across the globe: “A Message from the Country- the Jeff Lynne Years 1968-1978.”  Much more popular in the UK than they ever were in the United States, the album contained 18 essential tracks from throughout the group’s rather short career as well as tunes from the Idle Race and of course ELO.  We hope you will check this one out and consider adding it to your collection because despite whatever you might have heard, this band was among the major acts upon which, future bands would lay their foundation.  Please seek it out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.1q David Gilmour #17 04-19-2020 (400)

 

During free time from the constant recording and touring of Pink Floyd, guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour, found time to record and release his first solo album, “David Gilmour.”  The album came out on May 25, 1978 and besides the artist featured a sparse lineup to give him the individualistic sound for which he was searching, wanting to ‘introduce himself’ to the world.  Fans of the parent band always claim that Gilmour lacks the ‘creativity’ of his bandmate Roger Waters but here, he demonstrates that that is but a fallacy and something no sane lover of rock music would ever believe.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will love it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#PF001.1l Obscured by Clouds #12 04-19-2020 (400)

 

Pink Floyd released their next album, a soundtrack entitled, “Obscured by Clouds,” on June 02, 1972, music for a French film about a primitive tribe living deep within the rainforest. The songs all weave and flow about one another in an acoustic, mostly non-vocal way and could be prep-work for their next album, one that would make them global international rock stars. Still, if you are a completist as we are, you want to own every iota, every musical note, every little tidbit of this band’s amazing work because they are and will always be GREAT. When compared with modern music, there is no way anything produced NOW will ever be as great as the music of 48 years ago. Please, seek it out and add it to your growing collection- you will be so glad you did.
