  53. 2018 Tuesday: Following Saudi Arabia’s murder of Saudi American journalist Jamal Khashoggi, President Trump announces he believes the Saudi’s version of events which leads RINO and Democratic Party anti-Trumpers to go berserk, outraged over his defending of a staunch Middle Eastern ally.  Speaking of Saudi Arabia, the human rights group, Save the Children,’ alleges that Saudi Arabia is responsible for the starvation deaths of at least 85,000 Yemeni children.  The Houthi rebels should stand down and quit trying to force the country to become pro-Iranian. 
  54. 2019 Wednesday: As the impeachment inquiry of President Donald J.

  55. 2020 Friday: Never-Trumpers are now worried that Trump Republicans of whom there are tens of millions won’t show up to vote for either Senator David Purdue or for Kelly Loeffler after blasting them as racists, haters, homophobes, bigots, Islamophobes, transphobes, scumbags, stupid, backwards, vile, and worthless, deplorable POS.  This is a tough one; however, YOU RINOS made your frigging bed, now sleep in the damned thing.  It appears that the Democrats are going to win so perhaps they should win.  IF you won’t support a president who has done all the things you claim to want and to support, then millions of Trump voters say, “Screw you.”  Time for a strong third party.
  56. 2020 Friday A: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin urges Congress to unlock $580 billion of unused COVID-19 stimulus relief monies to help the American people remain somewhat solvent.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization advises people NOT to use Remdesivir to treat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Like hydroxychloroquine, it seems to work extremely well in combatting the Chinese Virus yet the W.H.O. doesn’t want people using it.  Meanwhile, various state governors continue increasing their Chi Vi restrictions such as in California which now has a 10:00 P.M. to 5:00 A.M. curfew to stop the virus spread.  Is the virus only virulent between those hours?  Remains to be seen.  Finally, Georgia announces that “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris have won the state, the first time a Democrat has won the Peach State in 30 years, by a margin of 12,000 votes.  It is what it is…
  57. 2020 Friday B: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 57,369,049 confirmed cases, +929,805, 1,368,746, confirmed deaths, +15,971, and 36,706,250 confirmed recoveries, +415,170.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 11,934,455 confirmed cases, up 189,962 from yesterday’s reporting, 257,309 confirmed deaths, UP 1,919, and 6,155,250 confirmed recoveries, UP 31,386.  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: 1,087,464 confirmed cases, 18,573 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,917 confirmed cases, 223 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 145,255 confirmed cases, 2,723 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 327,049 confirmed cases, 2,742 confirmed deaths, and 315,930 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: South Carolina- currently, they have 203,161 confirmed cases, 4,231 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  It is what it is, it seems to be going against the norm to provide the recovery numbers; what is up with that?
  58. 2020 Friday C: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,263.48, DOWN 219.75 points (-0.75%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,858.97, DOWN 49.74 points (-0.42%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,557.54, DOWN 24.33 points (-0.68%).  Price of GOLD: $1,869.60 per troy oz., -2.80 (-0.15%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.22 per troy oz., -0.138 (-0.57%).  Price of PLATINUM: $952.40 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.50%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,340.90 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.19%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.29 per #, +0.002 (+0.06%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $42.47, +0.05 (+0.12%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.89 Afghan afghani. 
  59. 2020 Friday D: A mass shooting occurs at the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  At least eight people were shot but reports suggest none of the victims was in a life-threatening situation.  At least 75 police officers are scouring the area seeking the shooter.  The Milwaukee division of the FBI also is on scene to aid in any manner in which, the feds can.  Meanwhile, GOP Senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney say they will ‘vote’ to confirm ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s cabinet picks.  Elsewhere, a 2-1 ruling by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a ruling in the Florida city of Boca Raton and of Palm Beach County that prevents therapists from offering conversion therapy to children struggling with sexual orientation or gender confusion.  Good for them.
  60. 2020 Friday E: President Donald J. Trump announced today a dramatic lowering in the prices of prescription drugs.  The costs of insulin could be reduced by thousands of dollars per year which would benefit all diabetic patients enormously.  Elsewhere, efforts to recall California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom have been granted a 120-day extension until March 17, 2021.  Meanwhile, Harvard Law School professors sign a petition demanding any lawyer who did or continues doing work on behalf of President Donald J. Trump must go to a reeducation center so they can be cleansed.  Wow.  WTF is going on in the United States.  Finally, we learn that Democratic Party U.S. Senate candidate Jon Ossoff- seeking to oust Senator David Purdue- works for a Chi-Com owned company and derives his living from money paid to him by the Chinese Communist Party while his counterpart- Reverend Raphael Warnock- seeking the other U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Kelly Loeffler is an unapologetic black racist and communist.
  61. 2020 Friday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1609 with a jackpot of $198 million at stake: 26, 33, 45, 61, 68, and Mega 17.  The highest winners were 49 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $441 apiece.

  55. 2020 Monday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 23,424,844 confirmed cases, +145,398, 808,716 confirmed deaths, +2,594, and 15,150,716 confirmed recoveries, +172,121.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,793,461 confirmed cases, UP by 40,679 new cases, 179,321 confirmed deaths, UP by 637 new deaths, and 2,947,272 confirmed recoveries, UP by 15,246 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 668,615 confirmed cases, 12,152 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,600 confirmed cases, 47 confirmed deaths, and 2,143 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,125 confirmed cases, 1,863 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.

DOWN -0.60 (-0.60%), and COPPER is at $2.93 # +0.00 (+0.00%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.43, DOWN -0.19 (-0.45%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.92 Chi-Com yuan. In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
  57.  2020 Monday D: Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers calls out the National Guard to Kenosha following a police shooting of a black suspect, 29-year-old Jacob Blake by a white police officer following a domestic violence incident on Sunday night.  At this time, the situation remains murky but what seems to be clear is that as Mr. Blake sought to enter his vehicle and leave the scene as the cops told him to stay led to his being shot seven times in the back as he tried to enter his car.  At this time, Mr. Blake is in intensive care and we hope that he lives but what is clear is that 125 members of the Wisconsin National Guard will be on scene in Kenosha tonight guarding infrastructure and maintaining the peace.  
  58. 2020 Monday E: Chi-Com ‘social media’ ap TikTok launches a lawsuit against the Trump administration for having issued an executive order forcing the ‘ap’ to shed its Chi-Com masters and to become American-owned.  We shall see where that goes.  Tonight is the first night of the RNC National Convention in various cities around the country.  Speakers tonight include Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, Donald J. Trump Jr., former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, State Representative Vernon Jones, D-GA, U.S. Army Nurse Johnson Ford, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Trump 2020 fundraiser, Charlie Kirk, Turning Point USA founder, and Kim Klacik, GOP candidate in Baltimore.   Also speaking are Mark and Patricia McCloskey, Democrat lawyers from St. Louis, MO,, Sean Parnell, GOP congressional candidate in Pennsylvania, Andrew Pollack, father of Meadow Pollack, slain in 2018 Parkland, Florida, high school shooting on Valentine’s Day, and Tanya Weinreis, a coffee shop owner in Montana who received a loan from the Paycheck Protection Program with which to keep her business open during the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic.    Herschel Walker, former NFL great and friend of the president for 38 years, spoke as well as Natalie Harp, a cancer survivor and right-to-try advocate who with help from President Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

[iv] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  The debut Led Zeppelin album appeared on 07-July-2014.  We hope you will check this famed British band out.

[v] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[vi] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.
