  48. 2019 Wednesday: Citing the shutdown of the federal government, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi disinvites President Donald J. Trump from giving his SOTU address.  He did it about one month later after the government reopened for business.  Meanwhile, furloughed federal workers swamp the Senate building to protest the ongoing federal government shutdown.  Who let them in?  Where was security? 
  49. 2019 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, the criminal government of Venezuela accuses the Trump administration of ‘engineering a coup’ against the ‘kind, gentle, and loving’ administration of thug President Nicolas Maduro.  Simultaneously, opposition leader Juan Guaidó takes the oath of office as Venezuela’s next president because he did WIN the election until he ‘didn’t.’  The fact that the U.S., Canada, and other Western nations recognize him as the president doesn’t mean s**t as long as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Cubans, and the Iranians continue their support of the Maduro regime.
  50. 2020 Thursday: Fighting continues in Syria as rebels attempt to storm rebel positions in Idlib Province.  Russian and Syrian troops throw the rebels back, killing at least 50 Islamists dead and another 90 wounded while the Syrian government forces lost about half that number.   Meanwhile, in Wuhan, China, nearly 850 cases of the coronavirus with at least 25 fatalities are counted.  Singapore declares its first case of the COVID-19.  The virus is spreading.

Trump will commence on February 8 even though Chief Justice John Roberts says he won’t preside over it (at least until Antifa mobs show up outside his home and ‘persuade him’ otherwise).
  52. 2021 Saturday A: The National Republican Congressional Committee has thrown the 10 House members who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump to the wolves saying they will NOT intervene in Republican primaries in 2022.  Justice is heading your way, you worthless scumbags.  Meanwhile, for some inexplicable reason, ‘President’ Joe Biden trashes President Trump’s executive order slashing drug prices for the American people.  WTF did you do something like this you decrepit old POS.  What the hell is wrong with that?  Elsewhere, Doug Schoen, now with Newsmax TV, says, “More legislation and less executive orders,” ‘President’ Biden.   Finally, in Moscow, Russian police arrest 2,1000 people demanding the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, opposition leader towards thug Vladimir Putin.
  53. 2021 Saturday B: The ACLU is demanding that all states add an “X” to their official documents when it comes to listing one’s sex.  What a load of crap, there are TWO biological sexes, period.  For people that claim to listen to science it’s shocking that they pick and choose what ‘science’ with which to listen.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, the NFL- thumping its chest with pride- is going to give 7,500 Super Bowl LV tickets to vaccinated healthcare workers.  How noble of you.  Meanwhile, also in a moment of chest-thumping, Twitter says that following Inauguration violence across the country, it’s suspending the accounts of Antifa.  Wow.  Really big of you!  Finally, in South Dakota, unemployment has fallen to 3-percent or lower thanks to the state’s decision to keep everything up-and-running.  In places such as New York that closed everything down, the ignoramus Governor Andrew Cuomo is demanding ‘President’ Joe Biden give him $15 billion in bailout funds.  We hope YOU go down, you homicidal POS.
  54. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 98,288,147 confirmed cases, +541,350, 2,109,758, confirmed deaths, +12,495, and 54,255,414 confirmed recoveries, +358,448.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 25,109,272 confirmed cases, up 247,884 from yesterday’s reporting, 419,058 confirmed deaths, UP 5,799, and 10,974,161 confirmed recoveries, UP 128,723.  We learn that famed TV personality Larry King died at age 87 due to COVID-19. 
  55. 2021 Saturday D: 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: 3,140,928 confirmed cases, 36,326 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 332 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 302,546 confirmed cases, 4,178 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Alaska: currently, they have 52,901 confirmed cases, 254 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,578 confirmed cases, 4,326 confirmed deaths, and 512,469 confirmed recoveries.   
  56. 2021 Saturday E: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3528 with a jackpot of $14 million up for grabs and for the Powerball Drawing #814 with a $20 million pot on the line. First up, we have the Super Lotto numbers- 15, 25, 37, 43, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 143,211 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $24,588.  One winning ticket was sold at the Safeway in Newark, CA, 94560 while the other was sold at the 7/11 at Los Gatos, CA, 95030.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball- 05, 08, 17, 27, 28, and Powerball 14.  Powerball for a prize of $33,827 apiece.  Six of the winning tickets were sold in (1) San Francisco Mart I, San Francisco, CA 94116; (2) Shell, Baker, CA 92309; (3) ARCO AM/PM in Bellflower, CA, 90706; (4) Desert Smoke Shop, Desert Hot Springs, CA, 92240; (5) 7-11, San Diego, CA, 92123; (6) Zoo Liquor and Gas, Fresno, CA, 93728.
  57. 2021 Saturday F: Democrats are seeking to rein in expectations over their upcoming ‘immigration bill.’  What?  We thought the 30-50 million illegals infesting our country are getting immediate citizenship and everything that goes with it.  Meanwhile, Dems are also saying that making federal election standards a top priority- what, NO MAIL IN BALLOTS?  Speaking of Democrats, the Chi-Coms are singing a different tune now, claiming that ‘no one on their end was seeking meetings with ‘President’ Joe Biden or members of his administration.  Of course they were and still are- everyone knows it.  They are Joe’s masters so they want immediate payback for having put him in office (or so we allege). Elsewhere, Steve Forbes tells Newsmax that an ‘economic crisis’ is coming soon.  You had better believe it.

  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!

  47. 2019 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump conducts an Oval Office address regarding the shutdown of the federal government and his need for funds to construct the southern border wall.  Trying to fulfill yet another promise.
  48. 2020 Thursday: In the morning, a disheveled and highly incoherent Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, rambled on about how she was going to send the ‘impeachment articles’ to the Senate when she ‘damned well pleased.’  It is becoming clearer and clearer to all non-senile onlookers that the Speaker has little to no clue as to where she is or what she is saying.  Even Senate Democrats- like Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Sen. Joe Manchin are saying ‘put up or shut up.’  Meanwhile, in Iran, it now seems likely that a Ukrainian jetliner that went down around the same time the IRG was shooting its missile ‘barrage’ in the direction of Iraq was shot down by the Russian-built Iranian air defenses.  Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau basically admitted as much seeing as how 63 of the 179 aboard were his citizens.  What are you going to do it, Mr. Prime Minister?  Most likely, NOTHING.  
  49. 2021 Saturday: Today is Wildcard Weekend in the NFL in our expanded playoff format: (1) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (11-6) @ Buffalo Bills. 27 (14-3) (2) Los Angeles Rams, 30 (11-6) @ Seattle Seahawks, 20 (12-5) and (3) Tampa Bay (11-5) @ Washington Redskins (7-9). Note- it’s time for the Seahawks to fire Coach Pete Carroll.  He’s a bum.  Also stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.
  50. 2021 Saturday A: BIG TECH bans the new social media app Parler over claims it does not moderate its site for ‘unacceptable content.’  Folks, when BIG TECH crippled Alex Jones and Infowars, everyone should have woken up and taken note.  This is the United States of America, NOT the People’s Republic of China- we have freedom of speech rights here.  Period.  Elsewhere, “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani urges President Trump to declassify ALL records on the ‘Russian collusion scandal’ and on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s ties to the Chi-Coms.  We also want to see the UFO files, too, Mr. President.  Meanwhile, an incoming congresswoman from Illinois finds herself in ‘hot water’ for having made comments tying Democrats to Nazis.  Then, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden begins blasting the GOP by tying them…guess what: Nazis.  It never ends.
  51. 2021 Saturday B: Washington, D.C. police are investigating a suspicious package found near the Capitol today.  Antifa left a bomb, perhaps?  You never know.  Meanwhile, Richard Barnett- the man who participating in storming the Capitol Building this past Wednesday and who first seated himself at Pelosi’s desk and then carried off her podium, turned himself into federal agents today.  Dimwit.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump- facing a second impeachment- confirms he won’t attend the inauguration of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden on January 20.  This will make the 45th president the fourth president- following John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Johnson- not to attend the inauguration of his successor.  Why should he?  It is clear the presidential election was a fraud.  ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden did not beat President Trump by an Electoral College vote of 306-232 nor did he win the votes of 80 million Americans.  Period.  Speaking of President Trump, noted liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Trump did nothing wrong in his speech this past Wednesday.’  Perhaps he will defend him at his second impeachment trial?
  52. 2021 Saturday C: Speaking of the mob violence at the Capitol this past Wednesday, engineered by Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter, the Department of Justice says there are NO charges against President Trump for ‘incitement of violence.’  What we saw on Wednesday was a well-orchestrated false flag operation carried off by Antifa and BLM.  We must give credit where credit is due and they did a hell of a job of it.  Elsewhere, President Donald Trump hints at the creation of a new social media platform.  Mr. President, you will need to create your own ‘Google,’ too, because there is NO freedom of speech if one does not control the servers upon which the platform exists.  Speaking of Twitter, Rudy Giuliani basically has labeled them a ‘fascist operation.’  In the same vein, Trump ally, Jason Miller, says, ‘if you don’t think they’re coming for you, you’re mistaken.’   Finally, 2020 was a bad year for the news media what with the loss of 30,000 or more jobs in the fake news industry.
  53. 2021 Saturday D: The Centers for Disease Control announce that 59-percent of all COVID-19 cases are caused by asymptomatic spread.   Meanwhile, a study shows coronavirus immunity lasts up to 8 months in 90-percent of patients.
  54. 2021 Saturday E: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 89,516,439 confirmed cases, +734,302, 1,924,004, confirmed deaths, +12,908, and 49,669,429 confirmed recoveries, +307,155.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 22,331,368 confirmed cases, up 281,916 from yesterday’s reporting, 375,039 confirmed deaths, UP 3,574, and 9,827,904 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,393.
  55. 2021 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: 2,639,814 confirmed cases, 29,233 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 23,143 confirmed cases, 307 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 273,142 confirmed cases, 3,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nevada: currently, they have 246,309 confirmed cases, 3,450 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 485,434 confirmed cases, 3,645 confirmed deaths, and 412,296 confirmed recoveries.
  56. 2021 Saturday G: Here are the results for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3524 with a jackpot of $10 million on the line: 03, 04, 17, 34, 39, and Mega 20.  Out of 118,277 winning tickets, the highest winners were EIGHT people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $2,687 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #810 with a BIG POT of $470 million up for grabs: 14, 26, 38, 45, 46, and Powerball 13.  Out of 280,550 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $37,117 apiece.
  57. 2021 Saturday H: Friends, we encourage everyone to stick around today to discover whatever news arises that continues showing the stooges of Beijing- the Democratic Party- doing whatever it is they’re doing to tip our country into the camp of the Chi-Coms.  We cannot permit them to steal the country from we, the American people…then again, if we cannot beat them, we may have to join them! Hail China!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Some wag with assets to the vault of the J. Geils Band released a historic live show on May 10, 2017: “Homework: Live at the Fillmore East, New York July 27, 1971.”  This of course would be an early live show, earlier than “Full House Live,” one recorded at one of the world’s twin greatest rock venues, the legendary Fillmore East back in the day before morons like Andrew Cuomo ruined the state of a loser like Bill Di Blasio destroyed the city.  If anything, Di Blasio might have been at the show, stoned on cheap Mexican reefer and Boone’s Farm apple wine and with his hand in some guy’s pants.  Ah, well, we hope all of you seek this amazing album out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music- you will be so glad you did.

  61. 2021 Saturday A: 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: 2,345,909 confirmed cases, 26,357 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,807 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,585 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Colorado: currently, they have 339,172 confirmed cases, 4,936 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 434,799 confirmed cases, 3,392 confirmed deaths, and 381,714 confirmed recoveries.
  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.

  63. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 65,760,928 confirmed cases, +649,062, 1,515,990, confirmed deaths, +11,687, and 42,248,499 confirmed recoveries, +396,600.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 14,463,929 confirmed cases, up 238,540 from yesterday’s reporting, 281,798 confirmed deaths, UP 2,874, and 6,878,662 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,323.

  65. 2020 Friday F: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,218.16, UP 248.74 points (+0.83%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,464.63, UP 87.05 points (+0.70%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,699.12, UP 32.40 points (+0.88%).  Price of GOLD: $1,842.00 per troy oz., +2.00 (+0.11%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.32 per troy oz., +0.067 (+0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,070.20 per troy oz., -2.60 (-0.24%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,357.80 per troy oz., +39.90 (+1.72%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.53 per #, +0.0045 (+0.13%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.09, -0.17 (-0.37%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.88 Afghan Afghani.  In other economic news, last month, the U.S. added 245,000 new jobs, below expectations.  Unemployment dropped to 6.7-percent, still high, but given the fact that we are in a war with the Chi-Coms, the Canucks, the Iranians, the Russians, and the dimwits in the Democratic Party, it’s NOT so bad.
  66. 2020 Friday G: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1613 with a jackpot of $264 million up for grabs.  Here are tonight’s numbers: 03, 19, 24, 44, 50, and Mega 08.  Out of 100,494 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,863.

  68. 2020 Friday I: As you know, we keep a close eye on the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges here in the U.S.  Talk about a Fifth Column!  The Democrats fit that bill to a tee, thanks to their constant pushing of socialism, socialism, and more socialism.  Stick around to discover what they’ve done today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Say what you will about aged rockers- rock and roll either makes you a long-lived legend a la Mick Jones- or it takes you out in a blaze of glory at age 27 like Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, Janis Joplin, Alan Wilson, or some slightly older guys like Keith Moon and the like.  Foreigner’s current lineup, much younger than legendary axe man Jones delivers a red-hot set of fiery renditions of tunes that led to the sales of 80 million and still counting albums.  I mean, how many bands still are able to continue generating a positive cash flow yet that’s what these guys do.  Fans love the album like we do which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and add it to your growing collection.  Lou Gramm- who?  Please seek out “The Greatest Hits of Foreigner- Live in Concert,” a superb album that came out on December 22, 2018- you will be glad you did.

T. 1942 Tuesday: Hitler’s so-called ‘fireman,’ German Field Marshal Eric von Manstein, arrives at Starobelsk to seek a way to relieve the trapped Germans at Stalingrad. The day before Lt. General Friedrich Paulus had requested ‘freedom of movement,’ meaning if the hedgehog defense failed to contain the Soviets, he wanted to break out with the army to the southwest. Hitler had told him to hold on and today, Paulus issues the same request to which, the Fuhrer issued a Fuhrer Decree- the highest decree in the Third Reich- ordering Paulus to stay put, that the Sixth Army would be supplied by the Luftwaffe.

  54. 2020 Tuesday A: President Trump announces his firm stance against the renaming of U.S. military bases named after Confederate generals.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. announces a list of 85 communist Chinese companies all with ties to the Chi-Com military.  We should do business with none of these rat-eating companies.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the U.S. announces it will stand with both Vietnam and the Philippines when it comes to defending the independence of the South Chia Sea, a region of the world in which, the Chi-Coms construct manmade islands and then declare them sovereign territory.  Screw these communist bastards.
  55. 2020 Tuesday B: Pennsylvania certifies the results of the 2020 presidential election as does Nevada later in the day.  Meanwhile, as ‘president-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden continues naming names of those whom he is inviting to serve in his Cabinet, the fake news media continues celebrating each of the aged far-left political hacks, many of whom served President Barack Hussein Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden.  There goes the country.  Meanwhile, whacked-out California Congresswoman Maxine Waters wants to investigate President Trump for being a ‘criminal.’  What a flipping nut!

  57. 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: 1,145,291 confirmed cases, 18,789 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 17,483 confirmed cases, 233 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 156,035 confirmed cases, 2,781 confirmed deaths, but like California, the thuggish 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, Oklahoma: 180,610 confirmed number of cases, 1,664  confirmed number of deaths, and 145,686 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 330,935 confirmed cases, 2,822 confirmed deaths, and 319,086 confirmed recoveries.
  58. 2020 Tuesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,046.24, UP 454.97 points (+1.54%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,036.78, UP 156.15 points (+1.31%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,635.41, UP 57.82 points (+1.62%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $23.29 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $963.40 per troy oz, +4.70 (+0.49%) while the price of COPPER is $3.32 per pound, +0.017 (+0.52%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,371.80 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $44.79 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.27%).  Today, COCOA is $2,753.00 per metric ton, -0.32 (-1.15).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.59 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 and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.   Sadly, IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden becomes our president, within four years, Chi-Com troops will be walking our streets.  Count on it. 
  59. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1610 with a jackpot of $200 million up for grabs: 09, 15, 34, 61, 64, and Mega 06.  The highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $42,771.  Over all, there were 91,936 winning tickets.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Anyone who knows the story of rock-and-roll in general and of the artist, Lou Gramm, in particular, you know it’s a life of excess to the point that many fall by the wayside while others manage to survive, many times throwing off their old life like a snake its skin.  Lou Gramm suffered some debilitating health problems that could have sent him to ‘the other side’ but he survived that scare just as he did a lifetime of substance abuse that rock-and-roll inflicted on him.  On June 02, 2009, he released an album called “Lou Gramm Band” in which, he performed classic renditions of Christian music- that’s right- Christian music- as a way of thanking the Lord for the love and kindness he showed his way when he needed it most.  Unfortunately, this album will cost you $196.10 or $8.33 for the MP-3 version.  If you’re curious, please seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did as we all require salvation at one point or another in our lifetimes…

  64. 2020 Tuesday F: President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney- the former mayor of New York City when it was the greatest metropolis on the planet- Rudy Giuliani informs Greg Kelly of Newsmax that he and the former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Keric handed over a copy of Hunter Biden’s laptop to law enforcement officials in Delaware for investigation.  The laptop contains numerous images of the former vice president’s son engaged in sexual acts with minors identified to be 14-years-old or younger and that as an officer of the court, HAD he not turned in the laptop to law enforcement authorities, he would be guilty of a felony.

French police rounded up 16 other Islamists including members of the punk’s family. The imam at the mosque posted a diatribe railing against the French teacher and that was it for the French law enforcement authorities. Round them up and deport them.
  67. 2020 Tuesday I: We encourage everyone to stick around to find out with us what the Chi-Com puppet-masters and their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to stick around today so and find out with us; we will keep the world apprised of their nefarious wrongdoings…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Electric Light Orchestra released their fifteenth ‘best of’ compilation, “Live- the Early Years,” on May 14, 2009.  This one contains 23 classic tunes from the band’s earlier live shows through the 1970s.  To see ELO live was to see something extremely special, the band had created something no other group of the era had ever thought of or conceived, much less to have put in motion.  We think everyone is going to enjoy this fabulous album which is why we encourage everyone to check it out, give it a listen, and then add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved albums.  You will be glad you did…

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.

[iii] We definitely look forward to promoting the music of Foreigner one of these days, perhaps in 2020?

[iv] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[v] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[vi] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2020

VV. 2015 Monday: In what many believe to have been a set-up event, Texas authorities arrest 14-year-old Ahmed “Clock Boy” Mohamed at his school following his presentation of his so-called ‘science project’ that looked suspiciously like a BOMB. Being a Muslim, one would think he and his family would have done something else rather than present something appearing to be a BOMB. Eventually, he would be released, both President Barack Hussein Obama and Facebook boy wonder Mark Zuckerberg sent supportive tweets. Of course, the punk became the symbol of American intolerance and Islamophobia. Where is he now?

  49. 2016 Wednesday: Imprisoned soldier Bradley Manning agrees to end his hunger strike when the U.S. military commits to his gender reassignment surgery thus making him Chelsea Manning.  This is the guy who helped WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange leak information on the Iraq War which embarrassed both the United States and current President Barack Hussein Obama.

  52. 2019 Saturday:  Only with the help of Iranian Revolutionary Guard direction and cash, Houthi rebels in Yemen carry out a stunning attack on Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq Oil Refinery with the use of drones carrying explosives.  The Saudis were caught with their pants down, the attack eliminated half of the country’s oil production and about five percent of the world’s which immediately drives oil prices UP.  Time to whack the Iranians and to eliminate the Houthi scum as a threat.
  53. 2020 Monday: Here are the figures for the carnage in Chicago over the past weekend: 53 people shot and 10 killed.  Next, down in Florida, disgraced gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum, Democrat, caught in a hotel room with a male hooker and a crack pipe announced today that he is ‘bisexual.’  Okie dokie.   Speaking of Florida, Tropical Storm Sally, roiling off the west coast of Florida, is expected to be at hurricane strength when its expected landfall slams into Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.  Speaking of natural disasters, the out-of-control wildfires roaring through three western states have burned millions of acres.  The death toll currently is 24 in California, 10 in Oregon, and a toddler in Washington state.  “Pro-China Joe” Biden at his only campaign stop today in Wilmington, Delaware, blames President Trump for the catastrophe, calling him a ‘climate arsonist’ and noting that the United States faces four different calamities: (1) a crumbling economy; (2) a pandemic; (3) white supremacy/white privilege, and (4) out-of-control climate change for which, President Donald J. Trump bears responsibility for all.  Wow.  Meanwhile, in California, President Trump meets with the state’s leaders in Sacramento to discuss what must be done to help the state overcome the blazing forests.
  54. 2020 Monday A:  In Qatar, peace talks between the United States, the Afghani government, and the murderous Taliban continue.  Elsewhere, Politico reports that the Iranian regime is planning on assassinating U.S. ambassador to South Africa Lana Marks.  Let’s nuke Iran and get it over with, shall we?  Speaking of ambassadors, U.S. ambassador to communist China Terry Branstad announces he will be stepping down.  Branstad, as you all know, is the former governor of Iowa.  On the home front, liberal outrage continues to grow over President Trump’s MASSIVE rallies in Nevada the previous day in which, most were not wearing masks or socially distant from one another.  In response, the president called the gatherings, ‘peaceful protests.’  The Dems have no leg upon which to stand.  Speaking of Trump, national polls continue to show “Pro-China Joe” Biden cleaning Trump’s clock with an ‘insurmountable lead’ of 51-percent to 46-percent.  Elsewhere, Amazon.com announces it will be hiring another 100,000 workers so it can keep up with the demand for goods.  Employees will begin at $15 per hour. 
  55. 2020 Monday B:  Sadly, New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says this year’s Thanksgiving Day Macy’s parade will be VIRTUAL.  NASA reports that a sign of life exists in the atmosphere of Venus, the second-most inner planet of the Solar System, phosphine gas which corresponds with microorganisms that can live without oxygen such as at a sewage treatment plant.  It is interesting to note that between 33 to 38 miles above the surface of the inhospitable planet is found a region comparable to temperatures and pressures found on planet Earth.  Fascinating if this is true.  We shall see.  Folks, we believe life exists across the Universe, that places we consider to be inhospitable to human life can host other forms of life.  Elsewhere, Jesse Watters on the Fox News Channel’s “The Five” showed a clip of ghosts captured on the Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania.  We believe this to be true, too.
  56. 2020 Monday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Wuhan Waltz, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 29,114,477 confirmed cases, +317,055, 925,596, confirmed deaths, +4,654, and 19,693,071 confirmed recoveries, +182,021.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,636,820 confirmed cases, up 40,094 from yesterday’s reporting, 197,367 confirmed deaths, UP 511, and 3,580,785 confirmed recoveries, UP 17,217.  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: 765,584 confirmed cases, 14,419 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 10,808 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,565 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 83,312 confirmed cases, 2,080 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Mississippi- currently, they have 90,018 confirmed cases, 2,706 confirmed deaths, but for some unknown reason NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Tate Reeves, what kind of Republican are you?
  57. 2020 Monday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,993.33, UP 327.69 points (+1.18%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,056.65, UP 203.11 points (+1.87%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,383.54, UP 42.57 points (+1.27%).  Price of GOLD: $1,965.10 per troy oz., +1.40 (+0.07%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.36 per troy oz., +0.005 (+0.02%).  Price of PLATINUM: $962.20 per troy oz., +3.50 (+0.37%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,324.40 per troy oz., -6.40 (-0.27%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.06 per #, -0.0035 (-0.11%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $37.26, 0.00 (0.00%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.81 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  58. 2020 Monday E: Tonight’s Monday Night Football lineup features two games: Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants and Tennessee Titans at Denver Broncos.  In the opener, it’s the Steelers 26, the New York Giants 16. The nightcap was a slow-moving dull affair: Tennessee Titans 16, Denver Broncos 14. Initial reports regarding ratings is that the opening weekend- not including today- is down anywhere from 18-24 percent.  The maxim is true: “If YOU WOKE, YOU WILL GO BROKE.”  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have all agreed not to watch anymore games until the spoiled crybaby players protest in their OFF-TIME and put their fortunes where their mouths are.  NBA?  F**k them.

  63. 2020 Friday:  Today’s attempt to bring down President Donald J. Trump comes to us from an article in The Atlantic magazine in which in 2018, the president called fallen U.S. soldiers at a U.S. military cemetery “losers and suckers.”  Four unnamed sources claim this is so just as they contend that President Trump also ‘didn’t think that wounded U.S. soldiers should participate in military parades.’  Most people believe that Generals John Kelly and “Mad Dog” Mattis are two of the sources but the sources say they won’t come forward out of fear of ‘angry Tweets.’  Uh, okay.
  64. 2020 Friday A: When federal agents go to arrest the Antifa POS who murdered Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of Patriot Prayer, a conservative peace group in Portland, Oregon, last weekend, the perp- Michael Reinoehl drew a handgun and was shot dead.  Good riddance.  Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Speaker Nancy Pelosi finds herself under verbal assault as protesters go after her for violating her own rules about wearing face masks and not going to hairdressers for indoor appointments.  The old bat continues claiming ‘I was set up.’  We hope that AOC-backed Shahid Buttar cleans your clock on November 03.
  65. 2020 Friday B: In the Oval Office today, the president of Serbia- Aleksandar Vučić and the prime minister of Kosovo- Avdullah Hoti- sign an economic peace deal before the watchful gaze of President Donald J. Trump which will benefit both nations.  In so doing, Kosovo- a largely Muslim country- agrees to recognize Israel and Serbia says it will move its embassy to Jerusalem.  Fantastic!   Speaking of Trump, his approval ratings have climbed back to 52-percent, what they were before the Yellow Flu hit the U.S. Elsewhere, Hilton Hotels says it is going to close its mega-hotel in New York’s Times Square permanently.  The state and city continue losing businesses thanks to the mismanagement of Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill Di Blasio. 
  66. 2020 Friday C: As economic news continues being positive for August, we learn that 1.37 million new jobs were created and that the jobless rate fell to 8.4-percent.  Democrats continue whining and screeching that Trump is destroying the economy while “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues expanding on his theme he mentioned yesterday: ‘I can’t tell you my tax plan because “they’ll shoot me.”  Your tax plan’s that bad Joe?  Maybe you shouldn’t win in November!  Elsewhere, as of publication time, stocks continue falling after dropping 807 points on Thursday.
  67. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 26,398,466 confirmed cases, +323,857, 870,477, confirmed deaths, +6,324, and 17,565,712 confirmed recoveries, +228,328.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,283,209 confirmed cases, up 63,148 from yesterday’s reporting, 190,058 confirmed deaths, UP 1,204, and 3,373,378 confirmed recoveries, UP 84,857.  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: 727,072 confirmed cases, 13,497 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 9,202 confirmed cases, 79 confirmed deaths, and 2,778 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 79,121 confirmed cases, 2,034 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Oklahoma- currently, they have 62,040 confirmed cases, 846 confirmed deaths, and 5,213 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Kevin Stitt for your state’s honesty in this regard.
  68. 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,133.31, DOWN 159.42 points (-0.56%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,313.13, DOWN 114.97 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,426.96, DOWN 28.10 points (-0.81%).  Price of GOLD: $1,940.90 per troy oz., +6.60 (+0.34%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.12 per troy oz., +0.403 (+1.51%).  Price of PLATINUM: $906.90 per troy oz., +8.70 (+0.97%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,304.00 per troy oz., +3.00 (+0.13%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.07 per #, +0.0125 (+0.41%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.51, -0.26 (-0.65%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.84 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  69. 2020 Friday F: Oregon Governor Kate Brown- when asked WHY she won’t send the Oregon National Guard into Portland, Oregon, to stop what will be soon 100 nights of unrest, she told a reporter that the ‘Guard is not trained in law-enforcement matters.’  In other words, rioters, and looters, continue doing what you are doing because NO one is going to stop you from running amok.  Elsewhere, we learn that the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon’s port cost the city $3.2 billion, left 300,000 people homeless and claimed the lives of 191.  Although it’s not clear as to what set off the ammonium nitrate or why it had been stored in warehouses lining the port for what is said to be ‘years,’ we suspect that Hezbollah and its leader Hassan Nasrallah were keeping it there for use in attacks on neighboring Israel.  It is time a drone takes out Mr. Nasrallah as he is the next ranking terrorist in the world after Abu Bakr al-Baghdad and Gen. Qassim Soleimani.  Light ‘em up!
  70. 2020 Friday G: Yet to come but we all know the Democrats as directed by their Chi-Com overlords are causing problems around the country.  Stick around and we will share them…WHERE’S NANCY PELOSI? WHERE’S KOOKY KAMALA HARRIS? Speaking of Pelosi, this blog will pay for a facsimile of the hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, prescription she’s taking since it’s clear she must be taking the medication to ward off the Yellow Fever…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Roy Wood’s Wizzard became- for one album- the Wizzo Band.  It released its ‘freshman effort,’ “Super Active Wizzo,” on December 11, 1977.  Once again, his band featured the lineup of Wood himself on numerous instruments and vocals Graham Gallery (bass), Rick Price (guitars/pedal steel guitar), Billy Paul (saxophones and woodwinds), Bob Wilson (horns), Dave Donovan (drums), and one or two other musicians to round out the sound.  The album did okay but the group’s creator, Roy Wood, was always evolving, mutating, and changing his musical sound.  This album has a jazzier feel but the group would disband after its release.  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.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a mildewed POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 6,072 confirmed cases, 46 confirmed deaths, and 2,072 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 69,779 confirmed cases, 1,850 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. 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, Utah, the “Beehive State,” one of the places practitioners of liberal politics are trying to take hold.  The number of cases in the state is 48,814 while the number of deaths is 385.  The number of confirmed recoveries does not exist.  Why not, Governor Gary Herbert?
  59. 2020 Saturday A: Let’s look at the second-highest nation infected with the Wuhan Virus, Brazil: the South American nation has 3,532,330 cases of Xi Jinping’s gift to the world what with 113,358 deaths, and 2,670,775 recoveries.   India is the third highest nation infected with this dastardly, lab-engineered virus what with 3,043,436 confirmed cases, 56,846 confirmed deaths, and 2,279,900 confirmed recoveries.  Russia comes in fourth what with 951,857 confirmed cases, 16,310 confirmed deaths, and 767,477 confirmed recoveries.  Now, let’s look at the Chi-Coms, the place where this needless disaster began: last week, they come in 30th among nations but this week have dropped to 43rd place (yeah, right) with 84,939 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths (same as last week), and 79,851 confirmed recoveries (although our sources in Hong Kong and Macau tell us they are 10-12-times higher than reported which sounds about right for the main communist hellhole on the planet.  Shame on them and damn them for the crime they have committed on the world).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

#MELO01.k Wizzard Brew #11 08-07-2020 (400)

The ever-eclectic Roy Wood formed his own band in 1973, Wizzard.  The first release by the group came out on March 12, 1973 entitled, “Wizzard Brew.”  Like the Electric Light Orchestra, Wood had a fair-sized lineup featuring himself on numerous instruments and vocals as well as former Move bandmate Rick Price (bass/vocals/percussion), Bill Hunt (keyboards, horns, and vocals), Hugh McDowell (cello and keyboards), Nick Pentelow (saxophones and woodwinds), Mike Burney (horns), Keith Smart (drums), and one or two other musicians to round out the sound.  The album debuted well in the United Kingdom and would pick up a following in the U.S.  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.
