Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Illinois, the “Land of Lincoln,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 169,883 while the number of deaths is 7,560.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame.
  73. 2021 Sunday: Folks, for Christ’s Sake, it’s Sunday, let’s hope the Chi-Coms and their stooge in the White House and their other stooges scattered throughout the government are not causing problems today.  Stick around and discover what they’re doing along with me- Chef Charles.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Blodwyn Pig went into the studio and created a true gem in “All Said and Done,” (March 28, 2004).  Mick Abrams and band redid in its entirety Jethro Tull’s first album, “This Was,” and what a difference between Ian Anderson’s ultimate version and guitarist Abrams musical views.  Remember, after “This Was,” the creative difference between Ian Anderson and the fiery guitarist caused the latter to bolt and everyone knows the rest of the story.  The other album of this two-disc set is a smoking, red-hot album, both of which make a highly desirable package.  We hope you will go out and seek this album out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

You will be glad you did.

[vi] The so-called “Lion of the Senate,” Teddy Kennedy, a Democrat, was little more than a sexual deviate and a murderer.

  55. 2020 Monday C: St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner- a political hack of the highest degree- filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for having ‘brandished their weapons in an unlawful manner at PEACEFUL PROTESTERS’ threatening to burn down their home, murder, and rape them, and kill their dog.  This is what happens when former Nazi George Soros buys state attorneys general , secretaries of state, and district attorneys at all levels.  We must stop this POS from undermining the country.
  56. 2021 Tuesday: This looks like it’s going to be a busy week what with the Joestapo going door to door to give people their ‘shots.’  F**k them.

  63. 2017 Friday: In Hamburg, Germany, amid violent protests, the G 20 summit gets underway.  Fake News media would single out specific photos in which, it appeared that world leaders were dismissing President Donald J. Trump.  Not true.  Elsewhere, in some ‘funny business,’ Berkshire Hathaway Inc. agrees to pay $9 billion to the parent company of Oncor Electric Delivery.  Four years later, the state would live to regret this situation when a cold winter struck and power went out across most of the state. 
  64. 2018 Saturday: The looming trade war between communist China and the United States goes hot as the Chinese hit back at the U.S. tariffs on $46 billion of their goods with an equal amount on U.S. goods entering the totalitarian state.  President Donald J. Trump makes it known that he is prepared for a lengthy fight.  Of course, the Democrats and RINOS go ballistic.  Elsewhere, North Korea’s house organ bellows about recent talks with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, calling them ‘regrettable’ and lambasting the Trump administration’s demands for the North’s de-nuclearization as being ‘gangster-like’ and disrespectful to their dear leader, the Fat One.
  65. 2019 Sunday: Due to major flooding down the Mississippi River, the state of Mississippi closes its beaches due to a subsequent toxic algae bloom.  Stuff happens.  Meanwhile, in the Ghazni region in Afghanistan, the Taliban- not to be outdone by ISIS who carried out an attack in Mozambique the day before carrying out a suicide car bombing in which, they deliver- kicking and screaming- 14 people to meet with Allah sooner than any of them planned while leaving another 200 in varying states of wishing they could visit with ‘Loving’ Allah.  What the hell is wrong with these people?
  66. 2020 Tuesday: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 11,694,766 confirmed cases, UP by 211,366 cases, 540,157 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,130 deaths, and 6,349542 confirmed recoveries, UP by 135,336 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 3,028,468 confirmed cases, UP by 96,421 new cases, 133,081 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,074 new deaths, and 908,324 confirmed recoveries, UP by 29,321 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).   
  67. 2020 Tuesday A: 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: 277,931 confirmed cases, 6,452 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,030 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 781 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 38,517 confirmed cases, 1,370 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 402,338 confirmed number of cases, 32,219 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the numbers you dingleberry!   
  68. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,890.18, DOWN 396.85 points (1.51%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,349.49, DOWN 89.76 points (0.86%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,145.32, DOWN 34.40 points (1.08%).  The price of GOLD is $1,809.90 per troy oz., -2.40 (-0.13%) while the price of SILVER is $18.70 per troy ounce, -0.084 (-0.45%).  The price of PLATINUM is $859.10 per troy oz, -4.10 (0.47%) while the price of COPPER is $2.79 per pound, -0.0105 (-0.38%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.62 per barrel, 0.00 (0.00%).
  69. 2020 Tuesday C: Both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence spoke with the nation’s governors urging them to reopen schools in the fall.   Meanwhile, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro tests positive for COVID-19 and says he is using hydroxychloroquine to treat it.   Meanwhile, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes signs a multi-year, $503 million contract with the team and they say the United States is a ‘racist country.’  Finally, the Trump administration announces that it has submitted the paperwork for a formal exit of the United States from the Beijing-controlled World Health Organization.  It also is going after Chinese-owned Tik Tok. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday: Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with the rest of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Jethro Tull is not what one might think according to its title: “Roots to Branches,” (September 12, 1995.  One might think that the influences that led to Jethro Tull’s formation, the band itself, and then the various offshoots such as Blodwyn Pig, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Martin Barre would be here but oh, no- this is a NEW studio effort, the 19th to be precise.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Steve Bailey and Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention), Andy Giddings (keyboards), and Doane Perry (drums and percussion),  As usual, the band delivers a fine performance which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your listening pleasure every day.

  62. 2021 Saturday B: The home of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell were both vandalized with the heads of pigs and painted hateful epithets.  One of the slogans painted on the home of the Senate majority leader was ‘where’s my money?’  Now that’s hilarious.  Good question, though- why is $762 billion going abroad and only $174 going to Americans?  This is bullshit and everyone knows it so folks, paint away, paint away and continue throwing those hog snouts on their front porches.
  63. 2021 Saturday C: In Texas, the state’s supreme court sides with the attorney-general of the state, Ken Paxton, in his battle to keep restaurants and other businesses open during the Chi-Com Virus Crisis.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is unhappy that the Department of Justice waved off the lawsuit brought by Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert to entice Vice President Mike Pence to overthrow the results of the fraudulent elections in six Democrat-controlled states.  We hope he will because if Democrats steal this election, they will steal every election.
  64. 2021 Saturday D: Chi-Coms in Beijing warn of ‘consequences’ over the New York Stock Exchange delisting some of their Chi-Com corporations and companies.  Screw them.  Meanwhile, a judge in the UK announces he will rule soon on the U.S. demand for the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.  Most are hoping he will receive a pardon for his offenses in the U.S. Elsewhere, we learn that U.S. airlines have lost around $35 billion in lost revenues thanks once again to the Chi-Com virus.  We hope to see the case the globe launches against the communist Chinese at the World Court over the destruction they’ve caused by letting this virus loose on the world.  Finally, a federal appeals court backs President Donald J. Trump’s order denying entry to illegal aliens who have no proof of healthcare coverage.
  65. 2021 Saturday E: President Donald Trump vetoes a driftnet ban off the course of California.  He also expresses that thanks to him, he was able to denude the Affordable Care Act- aka Obamacare- of the mandate that Americans hated.  Of course, should “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris become our next president and vice president, they are going to slap that sucker back on the ACA and full-time employment will return to 28 hours per week or less.  Something to think about.  Meanwhile, incoming Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammack, 3rd congressional district of Florida, says she plans to put an Israeli flag on her office door which just so happens to be next to the office of lunatic, pro-jihadi nut Rashida Tlaib.  Now that’s something we all want to see!
  66. 2021 Saturday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3522 with a jackpot of $8 million on the line: 11, 19, 35, 40, 46, and Mega 18.  The highest winner- out of 97,482 winning tickets- was one person who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $34,825.  The winning ticket was sold at Speedway in Wildomar, California, 92595.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #808 with a jackpot of $384 million up for grabs: 03, 04, 11, 41, 67, and Powerball 05.  The highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,047 apiece.
  67. 2021 Saturday G: Friends, stick around to discover whatever Beijing and their stooges in the Democratic Party are up today- we all know they’re up to no good so find out with us.  We thank you…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Sadly, with the growth of conglomerate mega-record companies as well as computers, digital music, and MP-3 players, music underwent a transition that made it difficult for older artists to get their music to their fans and to the public.  Peter Wolf released his next solo effort, “Sleepless,” on September 10, 2002, and folks, with a load of gifted musicians joining him, this is an amazing album.  You will find Mick Jagger and Keith Richards here as well as Magic Dick and loads of others.  We love this album and know that you will, too, so please seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be so glad you did- no doubts about what we are saying, period.

  50. 2017 Thursday: Following President Donald J. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the United Nations- always taking the sides of the Palestinians- lights him up- verbally.   Meanwhile, the Red Cross announces that cholera cases in war torn Yemen now total 1 million.  It is a humanitarian disaster.
  51. 2018 Friday: In Ecuador, law enforcement and military personnel get their man when they track down FARC thug- Walter Arizala- criminal and drug trafficker- and kill him in a gun battle.  The authorities sought the POS for the murders of two journalists earlier in the year.  Elsewhere, in the Czech Republic, a mining disaster occurs when a methane explosion in Karvina claims the lives of 11 Poles and 2 Czechs.
  52. 2019 Saturday:  While House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to hold her two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump close to the vest, the White House thinks she is going to cave.   Meanwhile, RINO Republican former governor of Massachusetts says, ‘Republican senators will be voted out of office if they march in lockstep behind President Trump.’  Elsewhere, after a massive pile-up of 69 vehicles on a Virginia interstate highway, local officials close the road.  It is said that poor weather such as fog may have led to the mass collisions.  
  53. 2020 Monday: First, we learn that in Georgia, 1.3 million PLUS voters have early voted in the Peach State using the same corrupt Dominion Voting Systems machines with the same corrupt Democratic hacks running the run-off elections as ran the general election and with the same corrupt POS RINO Governor Brian Kemp and the same corrupt POS RINO Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger overseeing the process.  Do we expect either Senator Kelly Loeffler said to hold a 52-46 lead over communist NOI-loving scumbag Reverend Raphael Warnock or Senator David Perdue who is said to hold a 50-48 advantage over “Pro-China Jon” Ossoff to win?  We sure as heck don’t.   We expect fraud to win and to win BIG.
  54. 2020 Monday A: The NYPD caught 150 people early this morning at an illegal nightclub in the Big Apple.  Next, Utah RINO Senator Mitt Romney says, ‘the GOP has strayed from the importance of character.’  Mitt, STFU, please.  Meanwhile, Congress is said to have reached agreement on a $900 billion COVID-19 relief package for the American people which is purportedly close to where they started 2-3 months ago.  What is apparent is that neither House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer wanted to help the American people.  Shame on them.   U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says ‘$600 stimulus checks could be going out next week.’  Elsewhere, Congress agrees on a matter of significant importance: removing the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Statuary Hall.  Wow.  Our lives will be changed for the better!
  55. 2020 Monday B: The Trump administration cuts the size of the Arctic lands available to be auctioned off for natural gas development.   Elsewhere, Pope Francis promises Vatican employees that no one will lose his or her job due to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.   Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’  If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it.  The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH.  Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.
  56. 2020 Monday C: As Brexit begins to seem like it might actually happen, leftist Britons are scrambling to seek residence in Spain and Portugal.  Speaking of Great Britain, the U.S. says that ‘everything is on the table’ when it comes to enacting a travel ban on the UK due to the increasing cases of a new strain of the Chi-Vi.  People are sick all over Britain and sadly, there are some who are still naïve enough to believe that the Chi-Coms did not create this disease for use as BIOWARFARE against the globe.
  57. 2020 Monday D: Outgoing U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr lays out charges against the Libyan bombmaker whose handiwork brought down the Pan-Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland, back in 1988.  The AG then says he has ‘no plans’ of appointing a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden and the Biden Family.  What a disappointment you are, sir.  Meanwhile, a House panel subpoenas HHS and CDC representatives to testify regarding their ‘lackluster response’ to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Seems like the administration did an excellent job.  
  58. 2020 Monday E: Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms attack President Donald J. Trump over his inference that they were behind the hacks and the spying.  Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says there’s ‘no doubt the Chi-Coms were involved.’  Of course they were, it’s what they do.  Regarding the Chi-Com hacks, the U.S. Treasury Department says there are ‘no signs the communists caused any harm to the Treasury Department.’  Speaking of the CCP, we learn today that BIG TECH is launching an all-out blitz to influence the Biden administration into doing whatever it and their masters in Beijing want.   Proof of this is that the New York Times won’t touch the story of Chi-Com agent, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, the man who attacked President Trump but who was schlepping a Chi-Com intel agent for five-plus years.  Wow.
  59. 2020 Monday F: 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: 77,188,346 confirmed cases, +656,621, 1,699,285, confirmed deaths, +9,360, and 43,522,242 confirmed recoveries (again, this number has been readjusted DOWN from a week ago-something strange is occurring), +342,299.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 18,083,146 confirmed cases, up 283,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 321,518 confirmed deaths, UP 3,019, and 8,000,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 142,452.
  60. 2020 Monday G: 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: 1,910,120 confirmed cases, 22,820 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,291 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 227,122 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Pennsylvania, currently, they have 569,413 confirmed cases, 14,015 confirmed deaths, and 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: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,107 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Mexico: they have 1,320,545 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 118,2020 confirmed deaths and 978,002 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Monday H: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,216.45, UP 37.40 points (+0.12%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,742.52, DOWN 13.12 points (-0.10%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,694.92, DOWN 14.49 points (-0.39%).  Price of GOLD: $1,884.40 per troy oz., +1.60 (+0.08%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.48 per troy oz., +0.096 (+0.36%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,012.60 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.34%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,316.40 per troy oz., -55.60 (-2.34%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.58 per #, +0.0075 (+0.21%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $47.80, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.95 Afghan Afghani.
  62. 2020 Monday I: Here is tonight’s Monday Night Football Matchup: (16) Pittsburgh Steelers, 17 (11-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals, 27 (3-10-1) Monday Night 5:15 P.M. That’s right- NO mistake- the Bengals clobbered the Steelers with third-string quarterback Ryan Finley.  You go, kid, you go!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 12, 1982, the J. Geils Band released their next album, a live one- “Showtime.”  Although the album features the same lineup as their earlier efforts- John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones)- for some reason, it’s not as powerful as their previous two live albums, “Live- Full House” and “Blow Your Face Out” as well as the fact that it lacks several tunes one would think should be included such as “Freeze-Frame,” “Flamethrower,” “I Could Hurt You,” as well as another live version of “Looking for a Love” as well as “Where Did Our Love Go?”  Ah, well, it is what it is and this is what they gave us.  As completists, we love a group’s entire catalogs which is why we encourage the readers to seek it out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Modern-day Democrats claim this is the beginning of slavery and evil in the founding of America.  We say, “F**k them,” as they are- with the exception of our liberal, Democrat, or progressive members- are full of crap.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[iii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.

[v] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[vi] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[vii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[ix] This horrendous atrocity was committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

[x] Once again, the atrocities committed in Mumbai were committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Evildoers.

[xi] Thank you, President Obama, this rule was a long time in coming as passengers kept inside planes on the tarmac due to overcrowding of aircraft at an airport risked going to jail if they tried to give up their seats and get the hell off the airplane.  Still, three hours is a long time to sit immobilized but far better than having to sit 8-12 hours.

[xii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[xiii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

OO. 2015 Tuesday: New reports surface that Hillary Clinton’s private email server- the one in her basement near the crapper that stored up to 55,000 pages of confidential documents during her time as secretary of state underwent more assaults than previously suspected and/or confirmed. Additional attacks came from communist China (say it ain’t so!), Germany, and South Korea. Hillary said only information on her Pilates training and daughter Chelsea’s wedding were on that acid-washed and bleach-bitted server. Uh, okay.

  41. 2015 Tuesday: New reports surface that Hillary Clinton’s private email server- the one in her basement near the crapper that stored up to 55,000 pages of confidential documents during her time as secretary of state underwent more assaults than previously suspected and/or confirmed.  Additional attacks came from communist China (say it ain’t so!), Germany, and South Korea.  Hillary said only information on her Pilates training and daughter Chelsea’s wedding were on that acid-washed and bleach-bitted server.  Uh, okay.
  42. 2016 Thursday: According to CBS News, reports say that the markets believe that ‘IF Donald J. Trump wins the White House in three weeks, the markets will tank whereas if Hillary Clinton should win the election, everything will be peachy keen.  Uh, okay.   Meanwhile as Hurricane Matthew continues making landfall along the coastlines of Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas, at least 300,000 homes and businesses are without power and 2 million or more are trying to escape the affected regions. 
  43. 2017 Friday: The board of directors of the Weinstein Company said movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was on indefinite leave the company he founded amid countless sexual harassment allegations made against him and the subsequent internal investigations into the worthless POS.  Note- Mr. Weinstein is a lifelong Democrat- BA-BOOM!  Meanwhile, new NHL franchise the Las Vegas Golden Knights wins their first-ever game, an away victory to the Dallas Stars, 2-1.  Congratulations!

  45. 2019 Sunday: Two rock stars died on this date: first, famed drummer Ginger Baker of Cream[iv], died in Canterbury, UK, on this date.  He had entered the hospital on 09-25-2019.  Next, longtime bassist with the Southern rock band, .38-Special[v], Larry Junstrom, died on this date at age 70.   Elsewhere, a human rights report says that in Iraq, protests over rampant government corruption, rising unemployment, and poor living conditions over the past five days that 100 people have been slain and at least 4,000 injured.  Sever your ties with Iran and you would do better.   Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong freedom fighters take to the streets to protest the newly imposed ban on wearing face masks at protests.
  46. 2020 Tuesday:  A House committee recommends the bust-up of the BIG TECH companies which cannot come soon enough.  As everyone knows, Google CEO Sundar Pichai discriminates against conservative voices.  We hope the U.S. government would strip him of citizenship and deport him back to Punjabistan, his family included.  Elsewhere in government, the U.S. Department of Justice announced today that there are ‘no COVID-19 exemptions in the U.S. Constitution that allows dictatorial governors and mayors (Gretchen Whitmer- are YOU listening?) to shutter all of society.  Henceforth, all such actions must cease.  Meanwhile, the Department of Transportation booted a union demand four making the wearing of masks without exception.  We must remember that early in the Chi-Vi Storm, doctors such as Tony Fauci said that masks did no good when it comes to battling a virus.  Then, all of a sudden, wearing masks and possibly goggles- as Dr. Fauci suggested- became the norm. 
  47. 2020 Tuesday A: A recent Axios-Ipsos poll suggests that minds have not changed with President Donald J. Trump coming down with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Kung Flu, the World Health Organization reports that 1-in-10 are COVID-19-infected around the globe.  Moving on, CNN dimwit Chris Cuomo calls President Trump’s bout of the Chi-Vi and subsequent return to the White House a ‘publicity stunt’ while his appearance on the Truman Balcony at the White House in which, he waved to supporters and news media professionals on site as somehow being akin to Benito Mussolini speaking to adoring crowds from the Palazzo Venezia.  Uh, okay.   Regarding the Chinese Virus, the White House is bucking strict guidelines for emergency release of COVID-19 vaccine; so says the New York Times.  Regarding government, a desperate Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, flipflops on recent Wuhan Virus Crisis comments saying that “REMOTE VOTING in the case of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not right.’  Prior to this comment, he was all for remote and attendance in the world’s (so-called) greatest deliberative body.’  For senators ill with COVID-19, attend sessions in full Hazmat suits.
  48. 2020 Tuesday B: Recent polls now report that “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s lead over President Donald J. Trump has now become an insurmountable 16 points.  Wow.  It’s all over!  Yeah, right.  Friends, we are more determined than ever to show up at polling places in person and to send these Beijing-loving leftists into the next dimension.  Meanwhile, the world’s ‘most beloved pontiff’- Pope Francis- announces that capitalism has failed and that collectivism is the only way forward, due to the Chi-Vi encircling the world.  Friends, this is reason enough to hope that the next pope will be from European stock and not that of the flipping Third World.  Catholics here at the blog wish he would step down and return to Argentina.   Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms ‘warn the United States not to cross any of their red lines’ as though we should be afraid.  After the attack on Indian troops earlier in the year in the Himalayas, the Indian army returned and kicked ass on the communist Chinese, reclaiming their territory.
  49. 2020 Tuesday C: Just in: fiery lead guitarist with Van Halen- Eddie Van Halen- is dead at age 65 from a losing battle with long-term throat cancer.  Add another member to Rock-and-Roll Heaven on this date. He died in Santa Monica, California.
  50. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 35,511,291 confirmed cases, UP by 172,166 cases, 1,044,090 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,370 deaths, and 24,770,288 confirmed recoveries, UP by 198,979 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,553,392 confirmed cases, UP by 8,727 new cases, 213,462 confirmed deaths, UP by 87 new deaths, and 4,905,362 confirmed recoveries, UP by 2,573 new recoveries.
  51. 2020 Tuesday E: 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: 838,956 confirmed cases, 16,205 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,007 confirmed cases, 157 confirmed deaths, and 10,470 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 94,275 confirmed cases, 2,254 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Montana: 15,633 confirmed number of cases, 192  confirmed number of deaths, and 10,172 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 272,309 confirmed cases, 1,757 confirmed deaths, and 204,355 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for car bombs or Hamas thugs coming up out of the sewers and kidnapping you or your lovely wife. 
  52. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,772.76, DOWN 375.88 points (-1.34%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,154.60, DOWN 177.88 points (-1.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,360.95, DOWN 47.68 points (-1.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,883.10 per troy oz., -25.70 (-1.35%) while the price of SILVER is $23.26 per troy ounce, -0.656 (-2.74%).  The price of PLATINUM is $860.00 per troy oz, -10.30 (-1.18%) while the price of COPPER is $2.93 per pound, -0.033 (-1.11%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,350.00 per troy oz., -9.10 (-0.40%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $39.86 per barrel, -0.81 (-1.99%).  Today, COCOA is $2,449.00 per metric ton, +21.00 (+0.86).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.79 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  53. 2020 Tuesday G:   Tomorrow night is the debate between Vice President Michael Pence and Senator Kamala Harris.  Should be better than last week’s slugfest but then…one never knows…meanwhile, Democrat charges of the day against President Donald J. Trump: ‘he’s like Mussolini, he’s a super-spreader of the Chi-Vi even though news media hacks have been captured off-camera stripping the masks off their faces.
  54. 2020 Tuesday H: Today, Greg Kelly on Newsmax reports the Trump-Russia Collusion HOAX was a creation of the Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign.  Today, DNI John Ratcliffe declassifies notes compiled by then-CIA Director John Brennan from a meeting at the Obama White House in 2016 in which, President Obama, then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice, Dennis McDonough, the chief of staff, and others, in which, Brennan was informing President Obama about a plan hatched by one of Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy advisors on July 28, 2016, in which, Democrats would claim interference by Russian security services on behalf of then- candidate Donald J. Trump with which to dirty him and to push Hillary across the finish line in November 2016.
  55. 2020 Tuesday I: Not sure what else the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party gofers are up to stick around today so and find out.  Update: White House adviser Stephen Miller becomes the 11th person to test positive for the Chi-Vi.  Meanwhile, Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vázquez Garced urged her citizens to vote for President Donald J. Trump, that the 45th president is their best friend.  Elsewhere, Hurricane Delta picks up steam and becomes a Cat 4 storm what with 130 mph winds.  It is expected to sweep across the Yucatan and then descend on the U.S. gulf coast, possibly New Orleans- yet again. 
  56. 2020 Tuesday J:  We reported earlier in the day the death of Eddie Van Halen.  Singer Johnny Nash died at age 80.  Known for hits like “I Can See Clearly Now” and “Rock Me Baby,” and “(What A) Wonderful World,” he died in his hometown of Houston, Texas.  He continued releasing albums up until 1986 and compilations long after that.  Add another one to Rock-and-Roll Heaven.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Roy Wood’s Wizzard released a belated effort, “Main Street,” on July 12, 2000, an album originally recorded in 1975.  Once again, his band featured the lineup of Wood himself on numerous instruments and vocals as well as former Move bandmate Rick Price (bass/vocals/percussion), Bob Brady (keyboards, horns, and vocals), Nick Pentelow (saxophones and woodwinds), Mike Burney (horns), Charlie Grima (drums), and one or two other musicians to round out the sound.  The album filled in some blanks and featured more of Wood’s jazzier tunes which makes it a joy to behold.  As always, the writing and lyrics are superb as anywhere Roy Wood is means there is a great deal of talent injected into whatever effort upon which he applies himself.  Please, check it out and enjoy because the AICPENDBLOG.COM recommends it for all readers of the blog.

  56. 2016 Thursday:  The U.S. Congress overrides the veto of President Barack Hussein Obama that will now allow U.S. citizens to sue Saudi Arabia over the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  Obama did not want people affected by the horrible attacks from suing the Islamic nation.  All but one of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia; go figure!
  57. 2017 Friday: Tom Price resigned as President Donald J. Trump’s secretary of health and human services amid investigations into his use of costly charter flights for official travel at taxpayer expense.  Meanwhile, Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, accused the Trump administration of “killing us with the inefficiency” after Hurricane Maria.  We must note that Mayor Cruz is a corrupt politician who was unable to distribute the vast resources that poured into the island following the storm.   Finally, the U.S. issues a no-travel warning to its citizens NOT to go to Cuba due to the ongoing sonic attacks on American citizens.  It also calls home some of the diplomatic staff in Havana thanks to the scurrilous behavior of the communist Cubans.
  58. 2018 Saturday: Tesla and its CEO, Elon Musk, agreed to pay $40 million to settle a government lawsuit alleging that Musk had duped investors with misleading statements about a proposed buyout of the company.   Elsewhere, some left-wing news sites report widespread demonstrations against center-right Brazilian businessman Jair Bolsonaro, the frontrunner in the presidential elections.  Go, Bolsonaro, go!
  59. 2019 Sunday:  Pro-Iranian Houthi rebels do a celebratory dance claiming they killed 500 Saudi soldiers, captured another 2,000, as well as wiped out a supply convoy on Saudi territory in the Najran region of the country.  Time to nuke Iran and to wipe out the Houthi scumbags. 
  60. 2020 Tuesday: A new PEW Poll shows that five-percent of Trump and Biden voters MIGHT have their votes changed following tonight’s Round 1 2020 Presidential Debate in Cleveland, Ohio, depending upon who does better.  Meanwhile, Democratic Party presidential nominee “Pro-China Joe” Biden disputes he ever agreed to (1) a break after every 30 minutes and (2) that he agreed to an ear canal check to determine if either participant is wearing an ear device.  Many believe that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden cannot sustain 90 minutes of debate and that he will be seeking every avenue of support or escape.  Rush Limbaugh still speculates that something will arise that will permit “Pro-China Joe” a way out without losing face.  Dr. Jill going to come down with a sudden case of the CHI-VI?  We shall see.  Speaking of Cleveland, shop owners are boarding up windows and securing their facilities as the danger of violent mob ‘protests,’ i.e., out-of-control riots looms ever larger.  Another ‘anti-fascist group,’ Resist Fascism arrives in Cleveland ostensibly to fight against fascism but to serve as the Democratic Party’s Brown Shirts.
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: Judge Amy Coney Barrett arrives on Capitol Hill to begin meeting with lawmakers ahead of October 12 and the first day of confirmation hearings.  At least 6-8 Senate Democrats announce they won’t meet with her as a means of protest.  Meanwhile, New York City schools begin the reopening process as Mayor Bill Di Blasio continues to threaten JEWISH neighborhoods with complete shutdowns if they don’t toe the line and follow his orders.  Speaking of major cities such as New York City, we learn that since June of this year, violent crime rates have soared 53-percent over last year’s rates at the same time.  Good work, Democrats, good work.   Elsewhere, on the West Coast, major parts of Sonoma and Napa Counties are ablaze, once again thanks to rampant mismanagement by California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Like Nero, he continues fiddling, trying to find ways by which, he can continue funding CalPERS at the expense of caring for the state’s forests.  This man must be removed from office before 2022.  Now.
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah dies at age 91.  Meanwhile, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson severs his ties with more than 95-percent of his fans by coming out and following communist China’s dictates and endorses the Biden-Harris 2020 ticket.  Rock- you are not only a sleazy opportunist, you also appear to be a shill for Beijing.  NO MORE ROCK MOVIES! Meanwhile, attorney for Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn- Sidney Powell- updated President Trump on his former National Security Advisor’s case and asked that ‘he not pardon the general.’  She is trying to get Judge Emmet Sullivan to recuse himself from the case or accept the Justice Department’s recommendations to drop the collapsed case. Elsewhere, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe releases fabulous footage that shows ALLEGEDLY Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar!” Omar has operatives involved in ballot creation and ballot harvesting.  We hear from sources on the ground in Minnesota that she could very well lose her re-election bid.  Strip her of her citizenship and return her crooked butt to Somalia.
  63. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 33,484,120 confirmed cases, UP by 327,308 cases, 1,004,082 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,386 deaths, and 23,212,633 confirmed recoveries, UP by 251,197 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,229,559 confirmed cases, UP by 23,692 new cases, 208,335 confirmed deaths, UP by 217 new deaths, and 3,870,955 confirmed recoveries, UP by 7,882 new recoveries. 
  64. 2020 Tuesday D: 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: 816,095 confirmed cases, 15,683 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 12,351 confirmed cases, 132 confirmed deaths, and 10,215 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 90,712 confirmed cases, 2,203 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 462,364 confirmed number of cases, 32,743  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were. PUT CUOMO ON TRIAL!  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 233,265 confirmed cases, 1,507 confirmed deaths, and 165,191 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the Chi-Com rockets the Hamas goons love firing at innocent Israelis.  We know you are prepared Mo!
  65. 2020 Tuesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,452.66, DOWN 131.40 points (-0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,085.25, DOWN 32.28 points (-0.29%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,335.47, DOWN 16.13 points (-0.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,903.10 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $24.42 per troy ounce, -0.002 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $882.60 per troy oz, -4.90 (-0.55%) while the price of COPPER is $3.00 per pound, +0.009 (+0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,329.30 per troy oz., +57.80 (+2.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $39.13 per barrel, -0.16 (–0.41%).  Today, COCOA is $2,565.00 per metric ton, +3.00 (+0.12).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.82 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  66. 2020 Tuesday F: National Security Director John Ratcliffe released information in a letter to Sen. Lindsey Graham- on the eve of testimony by fired FBI Director James Comey- that Hillary Clinton approved a plan with the Obama administration with which to cook up a bogus plan in an effort to dirty 2016 GOP presidential candidate by tying him to Russian intelligence services.  The question is whether then Director Comey expended the same amount of effort investigating Hillary Clinton as he did investigating candidate and then president- elect and finally President Donald J. Trump.  Not looking good for the Obamaists coup plotters.  Is prison looming large on the horizon?   Join the Trump Third Term Movement NOW!
  67. 2020 Tuesday G: Regarding to Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, here is today’s Democratic Party’s and Fake News Media Attack Phrase of the Day: “Illegitimate.”
  68. 2020 Tuesday H: Tonight is the first debate between presidential contenders, President Donald J. Trump, and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden.  About half-way through the ‘grudge match,’ it would appear that Mr. Biden is managing to survive the ongoing assault from the president.  Moderator Chris Wallace is struggling to maintain control.  We believe- at this junction- that Democrats will say the president is losing due to his belligerence while Republicans will say the president was aggressive and fending off both the former veep and the moderator. This update at 6:48 P.M.  What we will say is the following: it’s an UGLY affair, no-holds barred mud wrestling at its worst. Update @ 07:39 p.m.: what a rough 96-minute debate.  President Trump allowed the anger built up after 3.5 years to unload on Vice President Biden.  The former veep managed to remain upright but towards the end of the debate, he was looking a bit wasted.  We suspect the Democrat will cancel the other two debates.  Winner?  We think the president allowed his anger to get the better of him and the former vice president did not drop dead.  What an ugly mess…
  69. 2020 Tuesday I:  Telemundo, the Spanish language media giant released a poll from the first debate between President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President Joe R. Biden.  The poll says President Trump won by a 66-percent margin to 33-percent for Mr. Biden.  Wow.  You go, Spanish speakers! We have no clue as to what mischief the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges will be up today but when we find out, you’ll find out so please, stay tuned for further developments such as the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Electric Light Orchestra released an archival live album, “Live at Wembley 1978,” on March 28, 1998.  The album featured the lineup of Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), Kelly Groucutt (bass, backing vocals), Melvyn Gale (cello), Mik Kaminski (violin), and Hugh McDowell (cello). Critics of the band complained of ‘too much polish’ while others swore on the souls of their mothers the group was lip-synching but we discount all of that as BS.  This is a superb addition to the group’s growing discography; one we hope you will beat the bushes searching for as it contains some stellar tunes such as “Turn to Stone” and “Roll Over Beethoven.”  Excellent music by one of the all-time best bands of the era.

  61. 2020 Wednesday B: Meanwhile, President Trump is honoring the surviving veterans of the Bay of Pigs fiasco of the early 1960s when President John F. Kennedy made a half-assed attempt at toppling Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro.  God bless you guys!  Elsewhere, Democratic senators are wailing and whining that ‘GOP senators have promised to vote for whomever the replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg sight unseen will be.’  Wah, wah, wah: LOOK- Dems, you are already vilifying whomever the nominee is going to be sight unseen so STFU!  This means YOU, Sen. Chris Murphy, D-CT.  Enough is enough!
  62. 2020 Wednesday C: In order to placate angry mobs of Black Lives Matter and Antifa goons, Uncle Ben’s rice is changing its name AND removing its iconic image.  The new name will be “Ben’s Original.”  So long, Ben, you and Aunt Jemima can now spend the rest of your days on vacation.  We love you! Elsewhere, Louisville, Kentucky, continues bracing for possible mob violence once the Grand Jury’s report into the untimely demise of Breonna Taylor at the hands of city cops hits newsstands.  Look, we believe that had they NOT had a NO KNOCK WARRANT and had Taylor’s boyfriend not started slinging lead at the cops, she would be alive today, plain, and simple.  The boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, played a major role in this fiasco so folks, stop with the mob violence. Update: the Grand Jury indicts Officer Brett Hankison on three counts of wanton endangerment.  We shall see what we shall see… Second update: Antifa and Black Lives Matter seen unloading riot gear from a U-Haul truck 15 minutes away from the grand jury site.  Trouble on the way- expect out of control violent mob riots by sundown.

  64. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 31,759,233 confirmed cases, UP by 306,185 cases, 973,904 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,557 deaths, and 21,811,742 confirmed recoveries, UP by 228,075 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,025,624 confirmed cases, UP by 57,398 new cases, 205,066 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,620 new deaths, and 3,858,625 confirmed recoveries, UP by 98,768 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 204,690 confirmed cases, 1,325 confirmed deaths, and 144,963 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Wednesday F: 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: 796,500 confirmed cases, 15,273 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 11,689 confirmed cases, 122 confirmed deaths, and 5,125 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 87,283 confirmed cases, 2,163 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Colorado: 66,740 confirmed number of cases, 2,035 confirmed deaths, but no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Jared Polis for being another Democratic POS and remaining mum on this figure.  Smoking too much pot, there, son?  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, Johnson & Johnson announce that they are in the final stage of trials in their development of a vaccine for the Chinese Virus.  Thank you!
  66. 2020 Wednesday G: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,763.13, DOWN a whopping 525.05 points (-1.92%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,632.99, DOWN 330.65 points (-3.02%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,236.92, DOWN 78.65 points (-2.37%).  The price of GOLD is $1,866.20 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $22.55 per troy ounce, -0.555 (-2.40%).  The price of PLATINUM is $838.00 per troy oz, -5.00 (-0.59%) while the price of COPPER is $2.97 per pound, 0.0275 (-0.92%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,227.00 per troy oz, -6.00 (-0.27%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $39.50 per barrel, -0.43 (-1.08%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.82 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.86 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 22.41.
  67. 2020 Wednesday H: Sadly, famed Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers is dead at age 77.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson on his show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, reports that the Hearst Corporation (it would have to be the king of yellow journalism) is among the big billionaire donors to the mobs violence we see going on around the country.  He also reports that scumbags such as Palestinian jihadi and misogynist Linda Sarsour is urging the young leftists to ‘burn it all down.’   He also reports that the city of Seattle, Washington, now is paying a pimp- a human trafficker- the sum of $150,000 per year to consult on how to keep the streets ‘safe.’
  68. 2020 Wednesday I:  We will have to wait and see what the Chi-Com puppeteers and their Democratic Party puppets are up to today; please, stick around and find out…well, we now know that a recent report condemns the Chi-Coms for their behavior in occupied Tibet, a Buddhist country and one they have kept imprisoned in their orbit for decades, enslaving the people, forcing them to surrender their culture, their language, and their ways under threat of violence and death.  The Chi-Coms swear this ‘not so, Joe,’ but we know the fascist government in Beijing is cruel, trying to force the Tibetan people to become ‘good Chinese.’  Time to start nuking the commies.
  69. 2020 Wednesday J: Update on Louisville, Kentucky, the violent, out-of-control Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs have shot and wounded two police officers, are running amok though the city, trying to storm the mayor’s home, the hospital where the injured cops are being treated, and threatening all manner of other atrocities such as murdering cops.  Chi-Coms, WE KNOW you are behind this anarchy and you will indeed pay for your crimes.
  70. 2020 Wednesday K: Who knows what else will come…

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

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful on Saturday, 14-September-2013 and concluded the presentation on Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  Please check them out and add them to your growing CD collection- they are one of the greats.

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

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Alice Cooper one day so please keep posted until we do.  We think you will appreciate them, especially the original band.

[iv] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years.  Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.

[vi] Barack Obama most likely was born in Kenya as many sources claim and therefore an illegal president.,

[vii] We won’t be doing the music of Shawn Mendes.  We only do serious musicians.

[viii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

WE WELCOME ALL OUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS TO THE NEW AICPENDBLOG.COM AT WORDPRESS.COM WHERE SCUM SUCH AS SUNDAR PICHAI CANNOT DRIVE A DAGGER INTO ONE’S NECK.  PLEASE, SEND ALL YOUR FRIENDS TO VISIT US HERE AS THIS IS WHERE YOU GET THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH AND NOT THE ‘TRUTH’ COMMUNIST CHINA AND ITS LACKEYS WANT YOU TO HEAR

SS. 1992 Tuesday: The ex-Nazi, criminal financier George Soros earned his epithet “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England” when his Quantum Fund began dumping large amounts of pound sterling which crashed its value, thus driving the UK into a depression and driving the pound out of Enterprise Risk Management.

  59. 2019 Sunday: Famed member of the East Coast rock band, the Cars[v]– Ric Ocasek (guitars/vocals/keyboards 1976-1988 / 2010-present)- is found dead in his home on this date.  Meanwhile, Hong Kong freedom protesters outside the British Embassy find themselves under fire from the authorities with tear gas and water canyons.  Protests there are growing in momentum as the people continue protesting the Chi-Coms.

Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead. 
  63. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud? 
  64. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  65. 2020 Tuesday E: 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: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!
  66. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,995.60, UP 2.27 points (+0.008%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,190.32, UP 133.67 points (+1.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,401.20, UP 17.66 points (+0.52%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.90 per troy oz., -4.30 (-0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $27.34 per troy ounce, -0.119 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $978.40 per troy oz, -3.80 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, -0.006 (-0.20%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,417.50 per troy oz., +8.00 (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.39 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.29%).  Today, COFFEE is $124.30 per metric ton, +1.00 (+0.81).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.78 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them.  Today, communist China’s ally, the World Trade Organization released a ruling that says ‘the U.S. violated international regulations by imposing trade tariffs on $278 billion of Chi-Com goods entering the U.S.’  Stop the crying, Beijing, this is NOTHING ruling and the U.S. will continue punishing you authoritarian SOBS.
  67. 2020 Tuesday G: Not sure what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party pawns are up to today but stick around and we’ll find out together…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Electric Light Orchestra released their final studio album until decades later, “Balance of Power,” on February 17, 1986.  The album was somewhat a change in direction featuring the lineup of Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, bass, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), and Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals).  It is sad to see any band begin struggling but the 1980s and 1990s were a change in musical times.   Still, this is a superb addition to the group’s growing discography, one we hope you will beat the bushes searching for as it contains some glitzy tunes such as “Calling America” and “So Serious.”  First-rate music by one of the all-time best bands of the era.

  48. 1995 Saturday: Amtrak’s Broadway Limited service made its final run between New York and Chicago.
  49. 1997 Tuesday: Sinn Fein, the IRA’s political ally, formally renounced violence and took part in talks on Northern Ireland’s future.  Meanwhile, elsewhere in the world, actor Burgess Meredith died in Malibu at age 89.

  54. 2012 Sunday: The government of Serbia announces that it has a witness of organ harvesting of prisoners during the war in Kosovo.  Meanwhile, ISIS runs amok across Iraq, murdering at least 100 people and wounding another 350 or more in a blitz of suicide bombings and attacks.  Where’s Barack Hussein Obama?
  55. 2013 Monday: Near the foot of Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, archaeologists discover 1,400-year-old treasure, called “the Opel Treasure.”  Elsewhere, four days of vehicular gridlock began near the George Washington Bridge when two of three approach lanes from Fort Lee, New Jersey, were blocked off; Democrats later blamed the traffic jam on loyalists to New Jersey Governor Chris “Big Fats” Christie over the refusal of Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich to endorse Christie for re-election.  Christie denied any prior knowledge of the lane closures.  Hmmm, could “Big Fats” big telling the truth or is he a lying scumbag?  We will never know.
  56. 2014 Tuesday: In Taiwan, the government arrests six scumbags for selling contaminated lard products to foodservice operations, manufacturers, and restaurant suppliers, the lard contained discarded cooking oil as well as waste material from leather manufacturers. Meanwhile, in Iran, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei undergoes prostate surgery.  It must have gone well, in 2020, the old POS is still alive.
  57. 2015 Wednesday: Elizabeth II became the longest reigning monarch in British history.
  58. 2016 Friday: During the second term of Barack Hussein Obama, North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear weapons test.  Leader Kim Jong Un wanted to make sure he caused problems for the successor of the 44th president, whether it was going to be Hillary Clinton or Donald J. Trump.
  59. 2017 Saturday: At the 74th Annual Venice Film Festival, Guillermo Del Toro’s “Shape of Water” wins the coveted Golden Lion Award.  The movie starred Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins, and numerous others.
  60. 2018 Sunday: After six more women air their #MeToo allegations against CBS News boss Les Moonves in the New Yorker, he throws in the towel and calls it quits.  Meanwhile, things are going crazy across Russia as police begin arresting anti-pension reform protests, rounding up one-thousand, or more, in a single day.  Hey!  Vladimir Putin and his flunkies need to self-enrich so something has to give…
  61. 2019 Monday: After South Africa undergoes a wave of xenophobic violence, Nigeria says it will act quickly to repatriate at least 600 of their citizens.  Since Nelson Mandela died, everything has gone to hell in the once-stable country.  Meanwhile, singer John Legend[v] and plump wife Chrissy Tiegen light up President Donald J. Trump who launched into them on Twitter for criticizing his prison reform efforts.  He called them “foulmouthed’ and ‘boring,’ two criticisms the two ‘beautiful people’ didn’t like.  The truth always hurts.
  62. 2020 Wednesday: Today, we learned that across the nation, Democrats dominate the requests for mail-in voting ballots.  Folks, this is a time-honored variation of a psychological trick the Democrats ALWAYS use which is to depress their opponents into believing it’s a ‘done deal,’ that whomever the Republican president is, he is going to lose and to LOSE BIG.  Don’t fall for it, let them do what they are doing.  Speaking of Democrats, we learned that the Harris-Biden 2020 Campaign raked in $355 million for the month of August; however, no reporting of the Trump-Pence tallies.  Elsewhere, Chicago reports that downtown Chi-Town renters are abandoning the city and who can blame them?  Lawlessness, mob violence, shootings, beatings, rapes, all are on the rise.  Thanks to this, occupancy rates have fallen by 5.2-percent over the past few weeks which means that Chicago- like New York City and other big BLUE STATE METROPOLISES- is going to die due to poor leadership and criminal mismanagement.   Next, Fox News reports that Obama-Biden, over their eight years in office lost 494,000 manufacturing jobs while over the past three years, Donald Trump gained them back.  Yet, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is on the campaign trails when he can wake up claiming HE is the one who will bring jobs back to America.   Speaking of President Trump, the Nobel Peace Prize group announced they were putting in Trump’s name for their 2021 Award thanks to trying to make peace with the North Koreans and for brokering a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, something, laughingly, that Vice President Biden claims ‘me and Barack set the foundation for;’ please, you two goobers did no such thing.  
  63. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 27,605,570 confirmed cases, UP by 213,357 cases, 898,269 confirmed deaths, UP by 556 deaths, and 18,565,072 confirmed recoveries, UP by 187,663 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,434,718 confirmed cases, UP by 23,326 new cases, 193,119 confirmed deaths, UP by 668 new deaths, and 3,481,537 confirmed recoveries, UP by 30,719 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: 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: 747,603 confirmed cases, 13,899 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,025 confirmed cases, 88 confirmed deaths, and 3,063 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 81,133 confirmed cases, 2,046 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Wyoming: 4,103 confirmed number of cases, 42 confirmed number of deaths, and 3,451 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Mark Gordon for providing us the proper figures.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,940.47, UP 439.58 points (+1.60%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,141.56, UP 293.87 points (+2.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,398.96, UP 67.12 points (+2.01%).  The price of GOLD is $1,955.10 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $27.21 per troy ounce, +0.127 (+0.47%).  The price of PLATINUM is $924.10 per troy oz, -0.80 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.11%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,305.80 per troy oz, -37.40 (-1.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $37.83 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.58%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.83 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.37.
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: The Iranian garbage announce they are building a new, more secure site from which to enrich uranium at a much more rapid pace so they can build a bomb or two, the first one in 3.5-months.  The Iranian Revolutionary Guard and their mullah bosses claim the Mossad destroyed their first site via fire and explosions earlier in the year.  Folks, time to NUKE the living s**t out of these scumbags.  Meanwhile, the Oscars announce complicated new diversity rules so we can all encircle the bonfire and sing ‘happy, happy, joy, you.’  Here they are: A QUOTA SYSTEM, how about that?  To ensure more equitable representations, one of four lead actors must come from underrepresented groups such as black, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, or whatever else they can dream up along with 30-percent of all secondary actors must come from underrepresented groups including gays, the disabled, and the aforementioned groups as well as chicks.  In addition to that, the storylines/focus/themes must focus on underrepresented groups, and finally, at least two senior executives must come from underrepresented groups.  Wow, we already don’t watch movies now so from this point forward, we won’t be watching any flipping movies but if a producer wants their film to qualify for an Oscar- any Oscar- they will have to meet each of these requirements or qualify for NOTHING.   
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: The woman accusing President Donald J. Trump of sexual assault, aka ‘rape,’ back in the 1990s- E. Jean Carroll- says the U.S. Department of Justice’s decision to defend the president was “UNPRECEDENTED.”  It is not unprecedented as many times the U.S. Department of Justice will insert itself into a legal case on behalf of an individual federal employee and since President Trump IS a federal employee, it is perfectly legal and common.  Ms. Carroll claims that since the president recently disputed her accusations by saying (1) it never happened and (2) he doesn’t know her, it has harmed her credibility and her reputation.  Wah-wah-wah.  The Westfall Act gives federal employees absolute immunity from legal actions such as these and since Ms. Carroll is going to court in New York State, one can smell the malevolent odor of New York State Attorney General Letitia “Tish” James (as well as decrepit old battleax Hillary Rodham Clinton) somewhere in the mix.  We suspect that “Pro-China Joe” Biden will attempt to copy Trump’s tactics at a debate between he and Mrs. Clinton back in 2016 when the NY real estate developer and media mogul trotted out all of Bill Clinton’s rape accusers and sat them in the front row to throw the former first lady, senator, and secretary of state off her game- it worked but Ms. Carroll won’t sway Trump.  You can bet on it.  With the U.S. defending Trump, the case moves from New York State courts to the federal courts where she will end up the one in trouble.  Count on that, too.
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: Excerpts from Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, “Rage,” have clips of President Trump on tape downplaying COVID-19’s danger.  President Trump has done more than any other country around the globe to defeat this Chi-Com bat flu, yellow fever virus running amok and when questioned on his statements, the commander-in-chief says he did ‘not want to cause a panic.’  Sounds about right.  What matters here is that communist China LIED to the world and must pay a price for their crimes against humanity.  Elsewhere, on the campaign trail, Joe’s anti-senility meds are working fairly well today and he uses the admissions of Trump on tape to blast him and to tell the world all the amazing things he will do as president.  God help us!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Electric Light Orchestra joined forces with Olivia Newton-John to deliver a stunning movie soundtrack- “Xanadu”- on August 12, 1980.  Although the movie starring Newton-John and other big stars was a commercial disappointment, the soundtrack album sold massive numbers and was a joy to behold.  We encourage everyone to seek this effort out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did.  We thank you.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Byrds and then Buffalo Springfield, had we been more perceptive at the time as to how we would combined integrated musical groups and performers, we should have done the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, as well as each artist’s solo catalog as well as that of the various members of the Byrds.  We look forward to correcting that mistake at some point in the next 3-5 years so please remain alert for that day.  You will be glad you did.

[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] Good riddance to this Chi-Com POS.  He was a murderous thug and deserves to burn in Hell.

[v] We don’t ever plan on doing the music of this little wimp. Maybe in 80-100 years?
