ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Jethro Tull hit record store shelves on September 22, 1978: “Bursting Out.”  This 2-LP album was LIVE in concert and it featured mostly tunes from “Songs from the Wood” and “Heavy Horses” plus some much-beloved favorites.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), Barriemore Barlow (drums), and Dee Palmer (keyboards and synthesizers).  We tend to favor the early four albums over the more modern efforts but still, this is a good way to see the band in a whole different light.  We hope you will seek it out and consider making it a part of your listening day.  Enjoy.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull returned on February 04, 1977 with the first album of a coming trio of English folk rock albums- “Songs from the Wood.”  Quintessentially British from start to finish, Jethro Tull returned to what they began as- blues and acoustic.  The band was now six members- Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), Barriemore Barlow (drums), and Dee Palmer (keyboards and synthesizers).  Critics sang the album’s praises which is always peculiar as it seems when critics get their teeth dug in, they hate to pull them out.  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your listening day- we suspect you will like it.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We look forward to promoting the music of the Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, Roy Wood, and Wizzard..

[ii] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii]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.

[iv] See previous.

[v] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces. 

[vi] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

Amazon will remain at the state level and not move up the chain to the federal level.   In other interesting “Killer” Cuomo news, N.Y. Attorney General Leticia James may be ‘reviewing’ the erstwhile governor’s autobiographical ‘novel’ of the great job he did during the Chinese Virus pandemic, the one in which, he consigned tens of thousands of New York’s elderly and ill to their deaths.
  72. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- The Texas House of Representatives okays a bill dropping permits to open-carry firearms in the state.  Speaking of the Lone Star State, the former Austin Police Department detective sought in the shooting deaths of three people yesterday has been scooped up in police custody.   Next, President Donald J. Trump advises decrepit Joe Biden NOT to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan on the symbolic date of September 11, 2021, the 20-year-anniversary of the Islamist attack on New York City, on the Pentagon, and on a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Will old drooling Joe Biden listen to the sage advice?  Most likely not. 
  73. 2021 Monday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III- Elsewhere, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is putting forth a bill demanding the expulsion of lunatic Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, over her visit to Minnesota over the weekend to encourage VIOLENCE no matter the outcome of the murder trial of Officer Derek Chauvin.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is standing by her fellow octogenarian by saying, “She did nothing wrong.”  Both of these imbeciles must be voted out of office or impeached and removed.   In the case of “Prune Face” Waters, she should be doing time prison.  (Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Maxine Waters singlehandedly may have caused a mistrial due to her careless words.’[xix]   In other news, as the deathwatch of Putin critic Alexei Navalny begins, Joe Biden begins uttering some incoherent words in defense of the imprisoned freedom fighter.
  74. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV- Congressman Steve Stivers, R-OH 15th congressional district is resigning his seat to head his state’s Chamber of Commerce.   Next, a Jewish coalition may expel the Zionists of America for them being critical of radical anti-Semite scum such as Congresswomen Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, by calling them out for their anti-Israel bigotry.  What did ZOA say wrong?   Next, Republican leaders are demanding a meeting with ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris so they can discuss the BORDER CRISIS, the one a word-slurring Joe Biden long claimed it wasn’t but now says it is and do something about it.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris has crisscrossed the country but has gone NOWHERE near the border since coming into office.  Speaking of the BORDER CRISIS, Joe Biden issued new rules to Customs and Border Patrol telling them ‘NO LONGER can they use the words ‘illegal alien’ and ‘assimilation’ when discussing the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS POURING ACROSS THE SOUTHERN BORDER.’  WTF?   Speaking of ILLEGALS, Joe Biden’s handlers pledge that fuddled old Joe is going to raise the numbers of REFUGEES accepted into the country but that his original goal of hundreds of thousands may not occur.   (Interesting note- late this afternoon, the White House began walking back Joe Biden’s mumbled statements about the ‘crisis’ on the southern border.  Maybe they’ll CANCEL JOE?).
  75. 2021 Monday J: INTERESTING HYPOCRISY OF THE DAY-  Facebook is now censoring criticism of Black Lives Matter skank Patrice Cullors who has purchased several million dollars’ worth of real estate using money donated to BLM by dimwits such as FB cofounder Dustin Moskovitz who gave $5 million to the Marxist organization.  We cannot have people calling out LIBERAL HYPOCRISY now can we and so the great social media platform won’t let anyone call them out on it.
  76. 2021 Monday K: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT- After the defense wrapped up its closing arguments in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, the jury now has the case and cities from Minneapolis to Chicago to Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California, to Portland, Oregon, are all preparing for out of control riots should he be acquitted on ALL charges.  Judge Peter Cahill says, ‘it will be an easy appeal what with Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters urging VIOLENCE on American society NO MATTER WHAT VERDICT THE JURY DELIVERS.  (Note- we have said this and will continue saying it, ‘we think Officer Chauvin is going to get off.  Completely.  The blame will rest on liberal Democrats.  Period.  We think that had not the liberals involved themselves, had not the city of Minneapolis paid George Floyd’s family in the week prior to the start of the trial, they may have gotten a just verdict whereas now- as with George Zimmerman, aka the “White Hispanic,” they won’t get the verdict they seek.  IF they do, Chauvin will beat it on appeal).
  77. 2021 Monday L: NOTABLE DEATH- Former Vice President Walter F. Mondale who served under President Jimmy Carter from January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981 died today in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the age of 93.  He also was the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 1984 with New York Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro, D-NY 9th congressional district as his running mate.  They were soundly defeated by President Ronald Reagan.  Bon voyage, Mr. Vice President.   In other notable news, we learn today that Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick did not die from having his head ‘stoved in with a fire extinguisher’ as multiple media sources proclaimed for months on end during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021 but from a combination of two strokes caused by chemical irritants sprayed in his face by Antifa ‘protesters.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The unstoppable rock band from England- UFO- released their next studio effort- “A Conspiracy of Stars”- on February 23, 2015.  Once again, the band featured the quintet of Phil Mogg (vocals), Vinnie Moore (all guitars), Paul Raymond (keyboards), Rob De Luca (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion).  As usual, the band was at top form and fans of the band were in awe of this effort.  Many of the bands that came out of the late 1960s are no longer active but UFO has never gone away nor have their various side projects and endeavors.  We encourage everyone to go out and seek this album out NOW, give it a good listen, and then add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy!

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

[iv] Nationalist China is FREE China, the true owners of mainland China.  Driven off the mainland by the Reds in 1948-49 to the island of Formosa, renamed Taiwan, these people held the seat in the United Nations now held by the communists.  Many believe it is high time we return to a Two-China Policy that would recognize both the Free and the communist governments would benefit the entire world.  Many also believe it is time to boot Red China out of the UN and welcome Taiwan back in, especially since the communists gave the world the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis.

[v] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We promoted the music of both Koss and Back Street Crawler when we did the previous batch of famed British bands.

[viii] We are hopeful we will present the music of the Band and of its individual members sometime in 2024-2025.  Great music by a superb band

[ix] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 2021

DD. 1954 Saturday: The cost to keep the Huguettes supplied north of the main camp at Dien Bien Phu have become too costly to keep up night after night. Fighting the past couple of nights has lasted nearly to dawn, seen too many good men killed and wounded, and has damaged some of the light tanks remaining to the garrison. There are so many Viet Minh troops surrounding the base now that fighting to hold outlying ground or worse- recapture it- is too much for the remaining defenders. They will leave the outlying posts to their fates.

  43. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  44. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  45. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  46. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  47. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  48. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  49. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khomeini, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  50. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chi-Coms don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  51. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  52. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  53. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  54. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  55. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  56. 2017 Monday: The Chi-Coms continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  The Chi-Coms are like syphilis, they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  57. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the book stores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  58. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  59. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  60. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  61. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  62. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  63. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  64. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS- Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  65. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  66. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I- Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  67. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II- Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  68. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III- Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  69. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV- Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  70. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS- The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  71. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS- first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25. Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Temple of Rock, the newest project by Michael Schenker continues rocking forward.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist from the Fatherland are bassist Francis Buchholz, Michael Voss (vocals), Herman Rarebell (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards).  The resulting effort produced “Bridge the Gap,” which hit record store shelves on December 03, 2013.  One thing is for sure and that is you cannot keep good German rockers down as these guys have the fire in their bellies and it’s stoked up white hot.  We hope you will rush out and seek this one out NOW so you can add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

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

Saturday, April 17, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] 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.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

[iv] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] See previous.

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

  55. 2014 Monday: For the first time in U.S. history, millionaires make up most of Congress in 2012.  The Center for Responsive Politics study that reveals of the 534 members, 268 of them had incomes of $1 million or more.  Meanwhile, after putting out an invitation for an American envoy to discuss the ‘release’ of U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae, Pyongyang pulls it back.
  56. 2015 Tuesday: U.S. President Barack Obama[iv] seeks Congressional approval for additional force in the fight against ISIS.  The fight launched by Obama commenced without Congressional authority leading many critics to claim that Obama is exceeding the limits of his authority.   In addition to this, the Obama administration announces the creation of the NEW Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center that will seek out and thwart attacks on our cyber infrastructure.[v] 
  57. 2016 Wednesday: Blaming an El Nino-caused drought, the Venezuelan government orders 100 malls to close early so as to conserve electricity.  The reason the nation has no electricity is because of the sham of socialism.  Meanwhile, Boko Haram continues running amok in West Africa.  In Nigeria, two female suicide bombers attack a refugee camp killing at least 58 people while in Cameroon, bombers there kill at least six people and wound another 30.  All in the name of the ‘religion of peace’ as President George W. Bush once called it- Islam.  Elsewhere, after one of its citizens returns home from Venezuela, communist China reports its first case of the Zika virus.   Finally, in the U.S. presidential primary race on the GOP side, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie suspends his campaign.
  58. 2017 Friday:  Following the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals suspension of another Trump travel ban on visitors from several predominantly Muslim countries, President Trump tells a gaggle of reporters that he won’t immediately appeal the decision at the U.S. Supreme Court.  Meanwhile, in another 52-47 confirmation vote in the U.S. Senate, Tom Price becomes the nation’s next secretary of Health and Human Services. 
  59. 2018 Saturday: The Israeli military shoots down an unmanned aerial vehicle that crossed into the country’s airspace.  Upon further inspection, it’s clear the UAV was manufactured in Iran so the Israeli Air Force goes into action.  Crossing the border into Syria, Israeli warplanes attack Syrian and Iranian targets at the Tiyas Syrian air base in Homs Governate lighting them up with glee.  Of course, Damascus and Tehran express outrage and anger.  It is what it is.
  60. 2019 Sunday: The Catholic Church breathes a sigh of relief as an investigation into the U.S. Southern Baptist Church implicates 400 members with more than 700 victims.  Meanwhile, a study conducted around the world claims that insect populations worldwide are collapsing which could lead to a ‘catastrophic collapse of the world’s ecosystems,’ what with a 40% decline and a 30% on the endangered list.  Finally, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Democrat, announces her presidential run.
  61. 2020 Monday: The great leader, Xi Jinping, slaps on a face mask and visits a hospital in Beijing visiting sick people.  He demands ‘more decisive measures’ to combat the virus he claims came out of the Wuhan wet market when in fact, it really came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  At the time of this writing, we are unclear as to whether the growing pandemic was created with purpose in the lab or is yet another freak of nature disease to emanate in communist China and then infects the rest of the world.   Meanwhile, Beijing’s sock puppet, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- the head of the World Health Organization- says that ‘foreign cases of COVID-19 could be the tip of the iceberg.’  What did YOU know and WHEN did YOU know it?
  62. 2021 Wednesday:  First, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, blasts the World Health Organization for doing what everyone expected it would do, namely, cover up for their masters in the Chinese Communist Party.  Dr. Tedros is a bought-and-paid-for, Third World ‘medical’ hack.  Speaking of which, a recent poll says that ‘one-third of Americans are skeptical of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.’  We sure the hell are.  Meanwhile, the FDA grants Eli Lilly the go ahead to begin using its combo Chi-Vi vaccine/antibody treatment in the war against the Chi-Com Virus running amok in the world.  Speaking of Chi-Coms, Connecticut police are investigating the shooting death of graduate student 26-year-old Kevin Jiang whose lifeless bullet-ridden corpse was discovered over the weekend.  
  63. 2021 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s plan to re-engage in the United Nations ‘Human Rights’ Commission is seen as little more than a hollow gesture by the fading-fast 46th president.  Meanwhile, Alabama has a bill pending that would prohibit hormone drug treatments for tranny kids.  We always say, send these kids to qualified psychiatrists so they can get their heads on straight instead of falling prey to liberal insanity.  Finally, the CDC endorses ‘double-masking’ (these people are obviously invested in companies manufacturing PPE); however, we recall when Dr. Tony Fauci said, ‘masks don’t work’ just as we recall him suggesting ‘everyone might have to wear goggles,’ just as we remember him telling an inquisitive reporter that it’s fine to meet people on Grindr and Tinder for casual sex hook-ups.  WTF, Dr. Fauci?
  64. 2021 Wednesday B: Stephen King is putting up $6.5 million to help young authors get published.  Next, former Colorado Republican Senator Cory Gardner is going to head a new GOP Super PAC with which to help the party win back the House and Senate in 2022 and beyond.   Meanwhile, Congressman Ed Buck calls out the Democrats for resisting a proposal with which ALL members of Congress would recite the Pledge of Allegiance before every panel meeting.  Of course the Democrats won’t allow this being the Anti-American scumbags that they are.  Speaking of anti-Americanism, Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack of) are causing mayhem along the southern border as tens of thousands of illegal aliens try to storm into the country.  We encourage the disconnected president to begin laying in minefields to stop the invasion in its tracks.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate sets February 22-23 as the date for hearings for Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee, Merrick Garland.
  65. 2021 Wednesday C: NASA awards SpaceX a $332 million contract to build the infrastructure for a return to the lunar surface.  In other news, Fox News bozo Chris Wallace says, ‘the impeachment managers are really laying out a compelling case in the trial of former President Donald J. Trump.’  And you wonder why people NO longer watch Fox News.  Speaking of the ‘impeachment trial,’ the Dems are once again harnessing a major team of losers to prosecute the case against Donald Trump which is why we are supporting the National Republican Congressional Committee’s bid to beat 47 Democrats so as to reclaim the House in 2022.  Everyone knows Jaime Raskin is a moron as is Teddy Lieu, David Cicilline, and Joaquin Castro, among others.  Castro was babbling on about Trump’s claims of a ‘stolen election’ noting no Democrat would ever do that when we know defeated Anthony Brindisi in New York 22 was crying about Dominion Voting Systems fraud in his loss to Claudia Tenney.  Wah, wah, wah!
  66. 2021 Wednesday D: The CEO of Microsoft says that BIG TECH requires clearer laws as to what can and cannot be said online meaning ‘WHAT CAN WE CENSOR WITHOUT REPERCUSSIONS?’  Elsewhere, lowlife rocker Bruce Springsteen faces drunken driving charges in the Garden State.  Poor Bruce.  Elsewhere, right on time, a Georgia county launches a probe into President Donald J. Trump’s attempted election theft in the Peach State.  Wow.  Meanwhile, a judge denies Ghislaine Maxwell’s attorneys bid to keep an excerpt from a 2016 deposition sealed.   Next, officials in San Francisco and around the Bay Area are trying to figure out where a massive oil spill in the Bay originated.   Finally, people are shocked that Republican Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana voted with the Democrats and five other RINOs to move the impeachment trial against President Trump forward yesterday.  He’s a goner.  And Democrats should remember this: what goes around can come around and we expect to see Barack Hussein Obama impeached and his wife prevented from ever seeking office…
  67. 2021 Wednesday E: After Mark Cuban- owner of the NBA franchise the Dallas Mavericks- said that he would NO longer play the National Anthem prior to games in the country that made this scurrilous c**ksucker wealthy, the NBA said, “Yes you will.”  All teams will play the anthem before every game which is longstanding league policy.  Meanwhile, we learn that another leftwing POS- this one Kamala Harris- joked about killing both President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.  Newt Gingrich says the Democrats are making the case for Donald Trump in this exceedingly boring second impeachment which is good because people are growing angrier with these scumbag Democrats by the day. 
  68. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 107,166,785 confirmed cases, +523,266, 2,348,421, confirmed deaths, +17,582, and 59,908,386 confirmed recoveries, +358,991.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,485,502 confirmed cases, up 103,724 from yesterday’s reporting, 474,034 confirmed deaths, UP 3,374, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last two week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 144,639 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  69. 2021 Wednesday 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: 3,441,427 confirmed cases, 44,995 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,531 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 327,397 confirmed cases, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Arizona: currently, they have 789,245 confirmed cases, 14,462 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 703,719 confirmed cases, 5,216 confirmed deaths, and 628,004 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Spain: 3,023,601 confirmed cases, 63,704 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.    
  70. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,437.80, UP 61.97 points (+0.20%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,972.53, DOWN 35.16 points (-0.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,909.88, DOWN 1.35 points (-0.35%).  The price of GOLD is $1,842.80 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $27.07 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.07%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,247.80 per troy oz, +0.90 (+0.07%) while the price of COPPER is $3.77 per pound, -0.01 (-0.19%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,366.50 per troy oz, -4.00 (-0.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $58.32 per barrel, -0.36 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000022 Bitcoin.
  71. 2021 Wednesday I: Rush Limbaugh’s staffers encourage his hundreds of millions of fans across the world to pray for a remission of his cancer and for a swift recovery.  All of us are praying for your health, Rush.  God be with you.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. tells Newsmax TV that the ‘Dems are trying to scare ‘outsiders’ away from Washington, D.C., and politics.’  Moving on, Roger Stone told Newsmax that CNN’s latest report is ‘Russian Witch Hunt 2.0.’  Elsewhere, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, GOP, stands by his statement that the Capitol Hill Riots- in which Antifa and Black Lives Matter led the way with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s blessings- allegedly- were a hoax to blame Trump supporters.  We know what he’s saying- it was pre-planned and pre-engineered so as to coincide with the President’s speech on January 6 from the White House.  Evidence continues pointing in this direction which is WHY the Dems screech louder that what Republicans say are ALL LIES!  When the truth comes out, we know exactly where it’s going to lead…
  72. 2021 Wednesday J: As the Democrats got the impeachment three-ring circus underway, most Republican senators were once again, indifferent and/or immune to all the blubbering, crying, sniveling, snot-dripping BS the Dems spent all day making tens of millions of Americans sick.  It is an embarrassing freak show what with Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline talking about an “armed insurrection.’  Look, former Mafia mouthpiece, there were no weapons in the hands of the left-wing rioters.   Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, said the “Dems’ tears are not enough to sway anyone.’  Good for you, congressman.  Elsewhere, the CDC announces that those who are completely vaccinated against the Beijing Bat Bug do not need to quarantine.  Next, Joe Biden’s budget deficit through January is a whopping $735.7 billion.   Finally, former ICE bigwig Tom Homan says that ‘Joe Biden has made the entire nation into one big sanctuary nation.’  We’re telling you; people are going to push back against this tidal wave of illegals.
  73. 2021 Wednesday K: The Chi-Coms have got a Chi-Com lander in the atmosphere on Mars.  In a couple of months, the Chi-Coms will attempt to get it to the surface of the Red Planet where we hope it will blow up- watch it take COVID-19 to Mars!  Will they blame it on the Americans?  Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates have a similar robotic craft arriving on scene while the U.S. has another arriving soon.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden visited the Pentagon today to confer with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin where they plotted strategy to save the planet from climate change, the Chi-Vi, and of course, RIGHT WING EXTREMISM.  Left-wing extremism, A-Okay.   Finally, the Biden administration has suspended indefinitely the ‘forced transfer’ of TikTok- the Chi-Com intelligence gathering social media app to Walmart and Oracle in yet another tip-of-the-hat to Beijing.
  74. 2021 Wednesday L: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3533 with a pot of $19 million on the line: 08, 10, 19, 22, 41, and Mega 15.  Out of 102,034 winning tickets, the highest winners were 11 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,668 apiece.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #819 with a pot of $42 million on the line: 15, 39, 58, 63, 67, and Powerball 07.  Out of 56,277 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $26,687.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Always evolving and seeking new ways and new musical collaborations, fiery German guitarist Michael Schenker formed a band with Robin McAuley (vocals) called “McAuley-Schenker Group.”  Their first album, “Perfect Timing,” came out on October 12, 1987 and joining the blazing dynamic duo were Mitch Perry (guitars/backing vocals), Rocky Newton (bass/backing vocals), and Bodo Schopf (drums).  Amazingly, the collaboration between the two main components earned Schenker his first song on the U.S. Top 100 list with “Gimmie Your Love.”  What the heck more can you ask for seeing as how Schenker has been playing the part of rock god for nearly two decades so lightning finally hit for him.  We love that so folks, please seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as you most definitely are going to enjoy it…

Trump under the bus blaming the 45th president’s ‘speech’ for what happened on January 6, 2021.  NOT a good way to seek to remain a stalwart in the GOP there, senator, especially when evidence continues mounting showing that the riot was planned weeks ahead of the day of the mob riots.  We know the pipe bombs were planted the previous day.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Hardcore rocker and former bassist for UFO- Pete Way- formed a new band, Waysted.  Joining him were Fin Muir (lead vocals), Ronnie Kayfield (lead guitar/vocals), Paul Raymond (rhythm guitar/keyboards/vocals), and Frank Noon (drums/percussion).  When Pete left UFO, he left because he disapproved of the commercial sound managers and record labels were pushing the veteran rock band to follow which drove him off into the ozone.  Forming this band allowed him to give new life to the UFO sound and thus we have an album that might fit in more with their earlier discography rather than their later.  Fans love this album, entitled, “Vices,” which came out on October 21, 1983, as do we and we hope everyone will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Trump for the Iranian shootdown of a Ukrainian jetliner that killed 176 people aboard her.  Yes, their arguments are convoluted and crazy but it’s all they have.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, chewing her cud[xiii], says she is ‘going to send the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate NEXT week.’  Most political observers are skeptical of this statement.  However, the dilapidated speaker says she will meet with her caucus in the House on Tuesday.  Does she possess the pair of humongous balls to move ahead?  We suspect she will because AOC is plotting behind her back.  Meanwhile, Tehran swears on a stack of holy Qurans that they did NOT shoot down the Ukrainian airliner.  Finally, Marianne Williamson becomes the 14th Democrat to abandon the 2020 race.  Oprah- WTF did you continue supporting someone you encouraged to enter the race.
  58. 2021 Sunday: The NFL’s Wildcard Weekend continues today with three more games in our expanded playoff format: (4) Baltimore Ravens, 20 (12-5) @ Tennessee Titans, 13 (11-6) (5) Chicago Bears, 9 (8-9) @ New Orleans Saints, 21 (13-4) and (6) Cleveland Browns, 48 (12-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 37 (12-5).  Regarding the NFL, Pepsi says it’s going to concentrate on the upcoming Super Bowl LV half-time show and not so much on TV commercials. 
  59. 2021 Sunday A: In what many believe to be ‘too much, too late,’ the House Democrats have their articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump ready to go tomorrow.  Most believe their hope is to prevent the 45th president from seeking federal office ever again if they are able to squeeze a successful vote to impeach vote out of the U.S. Senate.  A growing number of Republicans are urging incoming ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden to order House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to stop the proceedings as it will only rip the country further apart.  NO one expects that Biden will stop them, he wants to see his predecessor suffer.  Mitch McConnell, R-KY, says that the Senate won’t reconvene until January 19 so no impeachment proceedings can begin until Inauguration Day.  Meanwhile, the House of Representatives plans to increase travel security for its members following Senator Lindsey Graham being heckled at Reagan International Airport.  Elsewhere, D.C. Mayor says she is ‘concerned about securing ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s safety’ on Inauguration Day which tells us that the Democrats plan on another FALSE FLAG operation on January 20, 2021, in which white Antifa members will be dressed in Trump garb and will riot across the city.  How diabolical.
  60. 2021 Sunday B: In a move that surprised NO one, the Pentagon says it’s going to rename U.S. military bases named for Confederate States of America war heroes.  Wimps.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military is upping its preparations for Inauguration Day.  Regarding this matter and the storming of Capitol Hill this past Wednesday, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says he’s shocked at the lack of preparedness exhibited by the Capitol Hill police.  Perhaps he did not see the tape where cops behind the Capitol Building were waving the demonstrators into the facility?  Seems as though they had orders to allow the Antifa mob in.  Speaking of Antifa, Fox News’ Judge Jeannine Pirro says, “Republicans must stop blaming Antifa for Wednesday’s events.”  F— you, judge.  
  61. 2021 Sunday C: BIG TECH giants have coordinated their attack on FREE SPEECH alternative to Twitter, Parler, with most app stores and server sites announcing they are either out of their stores or will be closed and denied server service come midnight tonight.  Likewise, Brad Parscale- former Trump campaign manager- says he urged President Trump to go to Parler sooner because he anticipated that Facebook and Twitter would ban the 45th president’s social media accounts sooner than they did.  Speaking of BIG TECH, RINO Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears he’s going to do something about Section 230.  Sure, Lindsey, sure.  Regarding Section 230 which came up during the formation of the Defense bill, there is funding in that document for the creation of a new cyber czar to oversee America’s cyber defenses.
  62. 2021 Sunday D: Scientists report that the Earth is spinning faster on its axis than it has in decades.  Meanwhile, scientists also tell us that 2020 was a devastating year for costly climate events what with 22 events costing a billion dollars or more per each event.  Of course this will lead the incoming 46th president to force the Green New Deal through both houses of Congress and into high-tax reality.  Not good for the American people.  Elsewhere, a tornado touches down in the central Texas town of Franklin which leaves hundreds of families displaced.
  63. 2021 Sunday E: Israel is deploying its anti-missile defenses pending threat of Iranian nuclear strikes.  The mullahs are always jabbering about nuking Israel, we should nuke them first.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lifts self-imposed restrictions on visiting Taiwan.  This will allow the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to visit the Republic of China which has Beijing upset.  Next, Indonesian divers pull wreckage and body parts from the Srivijaya Air Passenger jet that crashed earlier this week north of Jakarta.  Elsewhere, the Capitol Hill police officer whose head was stoved in by an Antifa thug wielding a fire extinguisher this past Wednesday- Officer Brian D. Sicknick- may lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda.  
  64. 2021 Sunday F: Crowdfunding site “GoFundMe” says, ‘it’s going to ban the raising of funds for those who challenged the 2020 Presidential Election.’  How nice.   Meanwhile, Bitcoin doubles in price to a new record in less than 30 days.  Love that cryptocurrency.
  65. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 90,180,310 confirmed cases, +663,871, 1,932,948, confirmed deaths, +8,944, and 49,948,772 confirmed recoveries, +279,343.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,451,123 confirmed cases, up 119,755 from yesterday’s reporting, 376,521 confirmed deaths, UP 1,482, and 9,850,654 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,750.
  66. 2021 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,687,085 confirmed cases, 29,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 23,341 confirmed cases, 309 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 275,832 confirmed cases, 3,775 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Kansas: currently, they have 345,541 confirmed cases, 3,148 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 491,319 confirmed cases, 3,671 confirmed deaths, and 412,296 confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2021 Sunday I: Senator Pat Toomey, RINO-PA, joins fellow RINO Senator from Alaska Lisa Murkowski to demand that President Trump step down from the presidency because of HIS CALLING HIS FOLLOWERS TO REVOLT which he did not do.  The impeachment articles being introduced tomorrow have 185 co-sponsors.  Currently, federal law enforcement is arresting numerous people who participated in the storming of the Capitol Building on Wednesday but NO mention of them being Antifa members (which we know they are).  Still, this is the direction in which, we are going- full left-wing lockdown thanks to the Dems and the RINOs doing what they are doing.
  68. 2021 Sunday J: Folks, we live in crazy times but there is ONE CONSTANT that does not change- the crookedness of money-grubbing Democrats and their RINO pals and buddies and the unseen hand behind the curtain- the Chi-Coms in Beijing.  We encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the truth may be today- you will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY JANUARY 10, 2021

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

Sunday, January 10, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

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

[iv] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.

[v] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[vi] We look forward to promoting the music of UFO and of the Michael Schenker Group at some point within the next year.  We hope you will remain vigilant as to the day that we do.

[vii] We promoted “Introducing the Beatles” on Sunday, 06-November-2016.

[viii] We promoted “Meet the Beatles” on Monday, 07-November-2016.

[ix] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[x] We promoted George Harrison’s “Concert for Bangladesh” on Thursday, 16-December-2016.  We hope you will seek the album out and add it to your collection.

[xi] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.

[xii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[xiii] Many people who contact us with comments are curious as to why someone so deranged as Nancy Pelosi is allowed to continue in her post.  Why hasn’t her No. 2, Steny Hoyer, D-Md., not come up behind her and busted a cap on her head?  We have no answer.  However, many believe that the Baby Evita- AOC- aka the FLY- is the one calling the shots and that older Democrats fear having her primary them in this year’s elections by putting up nuts like her, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, to take them out.  Time for a ‘Night of the Long Knives,’ folks, to remove these youngsters as threats to the established order.

359. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2020

U. 1942 Thursday: The Red Army occupies German airports at Tasjinskaja and Morozowsk outside of Stalingrad on this date during World War II, which severely limits the ability of the Axis forces to resupply the beleaguered command. Across the Mishkova River, the 6th Panzer Division begins withdrawing back to the western side of the frozen body of water. This would seal the fate of the Sixth Army, soon to be entombed in the city. More men were dying- 1,280 today alone- from frostbite, starvation, disease, and by their own hand. The German army had not lost on this scale ever before although the year prior, the Red Army was able to push them back from their capital.

  53. 2019 Tuesday: Following the release of ‘explosive emails’ regarding the phone call between President Donald J. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Democrats in the Senate are demanding ‘impeachment witnesses.’  This din of demands for witnesses will reach a cacophony over the next couple of weeks as the Democrats want the Senate to do the job they were unable to do: find evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts the cruel treatment of Roger Stone and Gen. Mike Flynn and dodges questions as to whether he will pardon them or he won’t.
  54. 2020 Thursday: As if restaurant workers already don’t have enough problems, the Labor Department is considering a law that will force tip employees- as long as they make minimum wage which they have since the 1980s- share their tips with the BACK OF THE HOUSE EMPLOYEES.  This is crazy, they already MUST declare their tips as part of their wages which has cost tip workers loads of money but now, this is even more insane.  This cannot happen.  Where is that dingbat, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez? 
  55. 2020 Thursday A: Black pastors condemn Senator Kelly Loeffler’s attacks on the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock as an attack on the ‘BLACK CHURCH.’  It’s not an attack on the ‘Black Church,’ it’s an attack on a Marxist.  Are black churches “Marxist?”   Regarding the two Senate run-off races in Georgia, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says he ‘won’t name anymore Cabinet picks until January.”  He is afraid that if he continues naming leftists, people will vote GOP- which we hope they do.
  56. 2020 Thursday B: A recent USA poll says that ’50 percent of Americans see President Donald J. Trump as a failed president.’  This means that 50-percent of Americans see him as ‘successful.’  (He also is considering a special counsel to look into 2020).  Speaking of Fake News outlets, Fox News Channel ratings have dropped an astounding 30-percent.  Wow.  We’re surprised that that’s all.  Another poll down in Georgia says, ‘women voters are split among the senatorial candidates.’  Why?  Warnock is an angry black communist and Jon Ossoff is a pro-Chi-Com closet queen.  Neither of these two should appeal to any woman worth her salt.  
  57. 2020 Thursday C: The GOP says, “NO” to President Trump’s demands for $2,000 stimulus checks for each American instead of giving money to foreign countries and the despicable illegal aliens raping our country.  What’s up with this, Republicans?  Meanwhile, newly pardoned Roger Stone rebukes the ‘Soviet-style show trials’ conducted by the Democrats and their hirelings on the courts.  Look at what they’ve done to the patriots who served the 45th president like Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Ret. U.S. Army.  It was criminal what they’ve done to him.  Even better, Roger Stone plans on suing the FBI, James Comey, Bill Barr, Robert Mueller III, and his gang of hacks, as well as the Department of Justice.  You go, Roger, you go!
  58. 2020 Thursday D: The Kremlin says new U.S. sanctions could complicate Nord Stream 2’s completion.  Ah, well.  CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) say that the hacks of the SolarWinds digital security provider are affecting state and local governments the most.  Many believe Russia’s cyber attacks must be viewed as nuclear strikes.  Let’s light those backwards M-F’ers up.  Speaking of Russia’s boss, communist China, the Chi-Coms are launching an antitrust suit against THEIR company, Alibaba.  Curious.  Elsewhere, Great Britain and the European Union finally reach agreement on Brexit.  About time.
  59. 2020 Thursday E: Christine Mohr, former canine officer in Maryland’s Prince George County publicly thanked President Donald J. Trump for her full pardon.  Following an incident in 1995 when her police dog bit a burglary suspect, she received a 10-year prison sentence over a ‘civil rights violation’ when her dog bit the punk.  What the f**k is wrong in this country when cops are sent to prison over stupid-assed shit?  Elsewhere, Wall Street executives are fleeing New York City for south Florida for its weather and its low taxes.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Maryland authorities investigate the explosion that occurred yesterday at the Baltimore Gas and Electric building that toppled the roof and sent 21 people to the hospital.
  60. 2020 Thursday F: South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem says she ‘won’t primary’ RINO Republican Senator Jon Thune in 2022.  Meanwhile, Representative Ted Budd, R-NC, joins the GOP-led effort to REJECT the 2020 Presidential Election’s Electoral College votes due to the rampant voter fraud and corruption exhibited by elected officials.  Excellent.   Elsewhere, Democrat Congressman Rick Larsen of Washington state becomes the latest politician infected with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Hydroxychloroquine works extremely well, sir.  Speaking of the Chi-Com Fever, the Russians claim- get this- that while they were working on the so-called ‘Sputnik vaccine’ to use against their Chi-Com masters’ lab-engineered pandemic, they also have a prototype vaccine for HIV-AIDS.  Who wants to be first in line for that crap?   
  61. 2020 Thursday G: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 79,226,905 confirmed cases, +755,130, 1,739,456, confirmed deaths, +13,497, and 44,628,688 confirmed recoveries, +408,889 (same number as reported a week ago).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 18,829,110 confirmed cases, UP 220,038 from yesterday’s reporting, 332,145 confirmed deaths, UP 2,973, and 8,270,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 44,542.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 389,502 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths, and 354,616 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2020 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,012,960 confirmed cases, 23,635 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,749 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 234,832 confirmed cases, 3,245 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Wisconsin- currently, they have 500,443 confirmed cases, 4,956 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Tony Evers- leftwing POS.
  63. 2020 Thursday I: Due to all the people becoming ill with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- the Pelosi Pox, nurses are sending out an SOS for additional help.  They are being overrun at the moment.  Meanwhile, much of continental Europe as well as the Empire State are closing off air travel from Great Britain (and some are closing off travel from South Africa) due to the new strain of the Wuhan Virus Crisis that is now running amok in the UK.  Although said NOT to be as lethal as the original strain of COVID-19, it is highly more contagious which means more people sickened requiring greater resources.  SOMEONE TELL US THAT THE CHI-COMS DID NOT DO THIS ON PURPOSE!  Stop bitching about Russia, the country to nuke is communist China NOW (or infect them with one of our own biowarfare agents).  Meanwhile, as leftists in the United States are urging minorities to receive the virus before whites as some sort of sick form or reparations, Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says, “We’ve been down this road before.  When white people are telling black people they need to take some medication, it’s time to watch the heck out because we’ve been there, done that, and it never works out well for us.”  Amen, Bea, amen.
  64. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,199.87, UP 70.04 points (+0.23%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,804.73, UP 33.62 points (+0.26%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,703.06, UP 13.05 points (+0.35%).  The price of GOLD is $1,882.60 per troy oz., -0.60 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.94 per troy ounce, +0.037 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,027.20 per troy oz, -1.70 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.57 per pound, +0.009 (+0.25%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,339.10 per troy oz, +16.00 (+0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.30 per barrel, +0.07 (+0.15%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.  On Christmas Eve, let’s have some fun- one-dollar U.S. = 73.86 Russian Rubles. 
  65. 2020 Thursday K: NO Thursday Night NFL game tonight.  The game will be played tomorrow at 1:30 P.M. on Christmas Day- (1) Minnesota Vikings (6-8) @ New Orleans Saints (10-4).
  66. 2020 Thursday L: Even on Christmas Eve, we don’t stop- we will keep you posted on whatever the Chi-Coms, their foreign allies, and their Democratic stooges in the U.S. are up to today.  Stick around and find out…

T. 1942 Monday A: Fighting on the Eastern Front continues to rage as Soviet armor, infantry, and air forces commence rolling up the Italian Eighth Army north of Stalingrad as well as Hungarian troops in the area. Field Marshal Erich von Manstein is mulling what he can do regarding the German Sixth Army trapped in Stalingrad and his thoughts are not good: his armored units are overextended and allied Axis troops are being destroyed. A decision will come soon.

  49. 2016 Wednesday: The evacuation of civilians from eastern Aleppo in Syria continues as the United Nations announces it is going to establish a war crimes tribunal to punish those guilty of such crimes.  Good luck with that.   Elsewhere, Donald Trump announces he is going to nominate noted economist Peter Navarro to the White House National Trade Council.  Liberals go berserk because he is anti-China.  Not until 2020 would we learn just how many American politicians are in the back pockets of the Chi-Coms.  A shocking number.   President-elect Trump also chooses Carl Icahn- someone whom the left labels a ‘corporate raider’- as a special adviser on regulatory reform.  Of course, the leftists are upset…
  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.

  60. 2020 Friday A: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden says he encourages ALL Americans to wear masks for 100 days.  Uh, okay, Joe.  Speaking of masks, the so-called ‘president-elect’ offers a job to Dr. Tony Fauci who leaps upon it the moment it’s offered.  What a sycophant.  Meanwhile, the GOP warms to the prospect of a bi-partisan stimulus bill with which to aid those affected by the Chinese Virus lockdowns and restrictions.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, Fox News reports that far-left pundit Juan Williams is suffering from the affects of this insidious Chi-Com disease.

  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.
  67. 2020 Friday H: A federal court of appeals rules in favor of the Trump administration redeploying Defense Department funds into erecting the southern border wall that separates civilization from the uncivilized.   Another judge rules against the Trump administration’s termination of DACA by ordering it restored.  This is the program the Obama administration sold as a ‘humane act’ because it provided children brought to this country by their illegal alien parents with an avenue towards legality and eventual citizenship.
  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.

[ix] Syria has always been a problem in the control of the Assad Family and we have had to light them up on numerous occasions.  They were scum then and remain scum to this day.

[xi] Although known as “The Deporter-in-Chief,” Barack Obama’s administration combined the numbers of those turned back at the southern border with apprehensions within the country, thereby deflating his record on deportations.  Truthfully, he did as little as possible to protect illegal aliens.  Shame on him.

[xii] This woman is a BIG Hillary Clinton supporter, donated boatloads of money to her, and was on the short list for a Supreme Court nomination had Hillary won the 2016 Presidential Election and not Donald J. Trump.  She is a Stanford University Law professor.

[xiv] Harvard Law Professor.

[xv] George Washington University Law Professor. Prof. Turley is the ONLY member of this fraudulent panel who actually admitted that he did NOT vote for President Trump while the others hemmed and hawed over their failure to be just as blunt that they, too, did not vote for the 45th president.
