  57. 2018 Sunday: In the Florida U.S. Senate race, Democrat Bill Nelson tearfully concedes to outgoing Republican Governor Rick Scott.  Good riddance.   Meanwhile, as firefighters continue battling the Camp Fire, the possibility that rain might come brings sighs of relief.  None of these fires are unnecessary, if only the frigging state of California would manage her forests properly instead of making unfair demands on PG&E to go to renewable sources by 2025 and would stop pouring every extra cent into CalPERS and into the farce of California High-Speed Rail, one of the greatest self-enrichment schemes for both the Democratic Party and their backers in Beijing.[viii] 
  58. 2019 Monday: On this date, Chinese authorities on the mainland in conjunction with law enforcement in Hong Kong are working hard to bring the illegal protests to an end.  Currently, the authorities have surrounded a university in the former British crown colony and are trying to arrest every rioter seeking to escape their dragnet.  Meanwhile, Mayor Pete Buttigieg[ix] of South Bend, Indiana, seeking to win the 2020 nomination of the Democratic Party finds himself leading the polls in Iowa on this date.  Wow.    This, of course, sets off his opponents seeking the nomination and far-left loser Julian Castro heads to the mics to blast Buttigieg.  Elsewhere, Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell, the first to abandon the race for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination becomes the butt of jokes around the world.  While being interviewed by Chris Matthews on MSNBC, the congressman in mid-sentence is heard to rip a LOUD FART[x] on live TV.  He denies he did it but the evidence is there.        
  59. 2020 Wednesday: Although most major news outlets, Democrats, and anti-Trump RINOs have called the election for “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, Las Vegas bookmakers have not.  Meanwhile, votes for President Donald J. Trump continue turning up in various battleground states but in Michigan, a setback occurred when county election workers first refused to certify the elections in the Detroit area until they came under verbal assault and threatened physical assault.  They quickly certified the results and sent them up the ladder to the Michigan secretary of state.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the House GOP leaders vote to retain the same officers in the lower chamber of Congress while initial reports say the Dems might keep current House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi in her position.  How this can be true after they lost beaucoup seats after being promised of the MASSIVE VICTORIES to come is beyond us.  However, what is also beyond us is the fact that the GOP knocked out one Democrat House incumbent after another and we are still to believe that President Donald J. Trump lost his re-election bid?  Say what?
  60. 2020 Wednesday A: The Department of Justice charges seven people for committing fraud on the U.S. government by scamming the Paycheck Protection Program out of $16 million.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump fires Christopher Krebs, a Trump appointee to head the elections security division at the Department of Homeland Security after he proclaimed, ‘NO election shenanigans have occurred in the 2020 Presidential Election.’  Elsewhere, CNN’s famed foreign correspondent, the highly biased Christine Amanpour expressed regret for having used the name of “President Donald J. Trump and his followers” in connection with Kristallnacht.”  That’s nice, Ms. Amanpour, you anti-Semitic bigot.   Finally, we learn that the Durham Probe into the Democrats, the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Obama administration continues.  IF Trump should lose, so what?  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he is doing his best to withdraw 25,000 American troops from the Middle East before the year’s end.
  61. 2020 Wednesday B: Pfizer- not to be outdone by Moderna- says their COVID-19 vaccine is 95-percent or more effective.  However, given billions of dollars by the U.S. government to develop the vaccine in record time to provide 100 million doses of the vaccine by year’s end has now reneged and says it will only provide 20 million doses while sending the other 80 million doses abroad.  Good Lord!  WTF is wrong with American companies?  Oh, wait, Pfizer donated BIG BUCKS to the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  Go figure.
  62. 2020 Wednesday C: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 56,024,130 confirmed cases, UP by 690,756 cases, 1,345,639 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,249 deaths, and 35,969,240 confirmed recoveries, UP by 356,120 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 11,546,233 confirmed cases, UP by 177,590 new cases, 253,423 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,100 new deaths, and 6,095,958 confirmed recoveries, UP by 58,978 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 326,200 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and 315,314 confirmed recoveries. 
  63. 2020 Wednesday 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: 1,058,125 confirmed cases, 18,364 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,755 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 140,942 confirmed cases, 2,686 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Virginia, the home of Democratic corruption, elected officials who dress in blackface or who have committed sexual assaults: 208,833 confirmed number of cases, 3,860 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam for concealing the number of recoveries- yet another left-wing liberal POS politician.
  64. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,438.42, DOWN 344.93 points (-1.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,801.60, DOWN 97.74 points (-0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,567.79, DOWN 41.74 points (-1.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,871.00 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $24.40 per troy ounce, -0.53 (-0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.10 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,354.00 per troy oz, +27.50 (+1.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.62 per barrel, -0.20 (-0.48%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.
  65. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto #3509 with a jackpot of $7 million at stake: 01, 02, 16, 27, 32, and Mega 18.  One person had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $27,123.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #795 with a jackpot of $179 million: 04, 05, 17, 43, 52, and Powerball 05.  The highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,296. 
  66. 2020 Wednesday G: Running unopposed for another term as speaker of the House, Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins to the shock of many.  It demonstrates how chicken-s**t the Democrats in the House are that they are afraid of challenging the 80-year-old, mostly senile, incoherent speaker seeing as how she has produced the slimmest ‘majority’ in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives losing 12 incumbent seats and gaining NONE.  Democrats, boot her out NOW!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After floundering about for a while, Lou Gramm discovered- like Mick Jones- that catching lightning twice can be a challenging thing.  Both of them needed one another but after wasting a good amount of time on solo projects and reincarnations of Foreigner, they reunited and released “Mr. Moonlight” on October 31, 1994.  Joining them were Bruce Turgon (bass/backing vocals), Jeff Jacobs (keyboards/backing vocals), Mark Schulman (drums/backing vocals), and a load of other musicians to round out the sound.  Sadly, lightning did not hit them twice and on the charts, this one came in at #136, not enough to bring in much money to keep the band living in the style they once were used to living.  Still, like anything else, it has its moments and one can discern flashes of the OLD GREATNESS so we encourage everyone to investigate for themselves.  You will be glad you did.

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

Wednesday, November 18, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of Blue Cheer- one of the wildest acid rock bands of all time, beginning on Sunday, 25-November-2012 through Wednesday, 12-December-2012.  We hope you seek this famed band out and add them to your collection; you will be glad you did.

[ii] We began promoting the music of this famed psychedelic band- Strawberry Alarm Clock- beginning on Tuesday, 03-April-2012 through Saturday, 08-April-2012. Please check them out- you will enjoy them.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[iv] 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.

[v] It does not require a genius to understand that every Republican president since Ronald Reagan has been the target of outraged Democrats who seek to overthrow the legal system and impeach every GOP president.  Time for this bulls**t to end.

[vi] These illegal protests in Hong Kong continue into 2019 and it is clear that they are out of control and need to be shut down.  Hong Kong is Chinese territory and it should be clear to all that they have been quite patient in their response while awaiting the perpetrators to meet them halfway.

[vii] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[viii] That’s right- we said it: the Chi-Coms provide many of the engineers involved in the project as well as lesser workers.  This is a criminal scam and everyone knows it. 

[ix] Mayor Pete is doing great with the Bath House vote but cannot attract black voters to his cause (and why would they join him?- editor’s note 2019).  We lovingly refer to Mayor Pete as “Little Queenie.”

[x] Chris Matthews claims it was the sound of a coffee mug being scraped across the desk.  You be the judge: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKLn-qjlM_Y >

  46. 2011 Tuesday: Syrian army troops prepare to retake the nation’s third largest city, Homs, from the ISIS scumbags holding it and its population hostage.  It is expected to be a long, bloody fight.  Meanwhile, a woman accuses GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain of ‘inappropriate touching.’  Many believe that Governor Mitt Romney, also vying for the nomination, is the unseen hand behind these allegations.
  47. 2012 Thursday:  Sadly, it’s true, Barack Obama won a second term this past Tuesday and Elizabeth Warren, well-known Native American princess- managed to unseat Republican Senator Scott Brown in the race for the U.S. Senate.  We were hoping the headlines might change but nope, what is, is.  Likewise, Tammy Baldwin, Wisconsin, becomes the first openly gay homosexual serving in the U.S. Senate, too.  The races appeared to be decided but some questions arose about irregularities.

  50. 2015 Sunday: President Barack Obama announces to wild applause from climate change activists that he will reject the Keystone XL pipeline that would bring Canadian oil to the Gulf Coast.   As if playing on Obama’s words, the World Bank announces that climate change could drive 100 million of the world’s inhabitants into poverty.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2016 Tuesday: By the end of the night on Election Night, Donald Trump held a 254-215 advantage in the Electoral College casting Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspiration in doubt.   Hillary Clinton’s supporters are thrown into shock and grief as the numbers continue coming out that show their girl went down in smoldering defeat.  Add to that the fact that the GOP maintains majorities in the House and Senate which drives the Dems into a frenzy of protests.    
  52. 2017 Wednesday: Five women accuse comedian Louis C.K. of sexual assault.  He is yet another victim of #MeToo.  Meanwhile, following last week’s assault, Senator Rand Paul’s doctors upgrade his status to six fractured ribs and both lungs bruised.  His attacker pleads NOT GUILTY to charges of 4th Degree Assault. 
  53. 2018 Thursday: Tens of thousands of people fled a fast-moving wildfire in Northern California that would become the state’s deadliest ever, killing 86 people; authorities said the community of Paradise had been nearly destroyed by the flames.  Meanwhile, a federal judge in Montana nixes the Keystone XL Pipeline yet again.  Meanwhile, with the firing of Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, Democrats in the House- and their shock troops in the streets- demand protection of Robert S. Mueller’s ‘probe’ into ‘Trump-Russia Collusion,’ the now debunked scam and sham investigation.  The Dems want to protect the senile former FBI boss who put many people into prison who did not deserve to be there.  Finally, President Trump says he will end all asylum claims by illegal aliens who cross the border without going through ports of entry.  Good.  Build the wall and deport them all…        
  54. 2019 Friday: As Democrats continue snapping about his heels, President Donald J. Trump says he will ‘probably release the full transcript of his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, most likely next Tuesday.’  Meanwhile, House Republicans send a list of witnesses they would like to testify to Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, all Democrats.  They would be denied.
  55. 2020 Sunday: Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the committee will probe numerous allegations of voter fraud marring the 2020 Presidential Election.  Speaking of election fraud, the totally in-the-tank-for-the-Democrats Facebook removes the account of a pro-Trump group, Boots on the Ground to Protect the Integrity of the Election, a group with 350,000 followers- advocating to stop the theft of the presidential election.  Facebook, if Trump and the Republicans come out on top, we hope they use anti-trust actions to break you up.  NO one gave you the right to stifle free speech and Mark Zuckerberg is little more than a candy-assed pansy.    Meanwhile, voters in Georgia are getting suspicious phone calls asking if they voted and for whom- authorities believe this to be yet another scheme with which to steal the election.  Finally, the leftist dimwit Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, birth name Sandy Cortez, blasts the failed Lincoln Project for not converting enough conservative voters to rabid Democrats.  All considered, BOTH AOC and her (terrorist) squad and the Lincoln Project are a bunch of losers.
  56. 2020 Sunday A: In Democrat-controlled battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, as well as Georgia, Trump supporters are in the streets demanding justice in the election.  It is one thing to lose and quite another to lose because the Democrats have stolen it.  Interesting note: Joe Biden has more votes for president in these states than did Democrat senatorial candidates so it’s clear that electoral shenanigans have been going on as the Dems were unable to steal Senate seats.  What’s more, are we to believe that in Pennsylvania that citizens of that state voted for “Pro-China Joe” Biden so their jobs in fracking, natural gas production, and every industry and job connected to fossil fuel production would vanish like they did in 2009?  We think not.
  57. 2020 Sunday B: Sadly, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is dead at 80 from pancreatic carcinoma.  Moving on, Marxist former Bolivian president Evo Morales is set to return home after being banished.  In the Ivory Coast, the government took to the streets to arrest members of the opposition  party for treason, corruption, and for being members of the opposition party, something that ditz b***h AOC would like to do in the United States.  Remember: there are more of us than there are of them.
  58. 2020 Sunday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -so-called Pelosi Pox the aka ‘Go to Chinatown and hug a Chinaman’ (a moronic act of virtue-signaling) disease:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 50,111,147 confirmed cases, +422,796, 1,253,707, confirmed deaths, +5,557, and 32,892,365 confirmed recoveries, +258,624.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 10,066,916 confirmed cases, up 147,063 from yesterday’s reporting, 241,186 confirmed deaths, UP 875, and 5,740,386 confirmed recoveries, UP 27,153.  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: 975,535 confirmed cases, 17,970 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,939 confirmed cases, 220 confirmed deaths, and 12,083 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 121,220 confirmed cases, 2,552 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Jersey- currently, they have 256,395 confirmed cases, 16,429 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries- why don’t you report the statistics?  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 319,241 confirmed cases, 2,674 confirmed deaths, and 308,563 confirmed recoveries.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 11, 1979, Foreigner came back with another powerful album, “Head Games.”  On lead vocals was Lou Gramm, Mick Jones (guitars), Ian McDonald (keyboards/guitars/vocals/producer), Al Greenwood (keyboards), Dennis Elliott (drums/percussion), and veteran bassist Rick Wills.  The band had a knack for delivering radio hits and this album was no exception what with “Dirty White Boy,” “Love on the Telephone,” and the title track.  At the time, there were very few groups that sounded like this one and they were as powerful and as potent as the soon-to-be-gone Led Zeppelin with the death of John Bonham.  We hope you will seek this album out by visiting whatever your favorite site for rock music is because this one is a classic.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] General McClellan, aka “Little Mac” to his troops was among the numerous federal generals that President Lincoln had to terminate because they were horrible commanders.  “Little Mac” put the lives of his troops above everything which is why they so revered him but when it came to showing fighting spunk, he failed to attack time and again which might have ended the war far sooner.

[ii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[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.

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?

  46. 2012 Friday: Pope Benedict XVI visit Lebanon.  Meanwhile, the Japanese Coast Guard reports six Chinese Marine Surveillance ships sighted near the disputed Senkaku Islands; China claims the ‘two surveillance ship fleets’ are in waters around the islands for purposes of ‘patrols and law enforcement’.  Elsewhere, fury over an anti-Muslim short film (no one knew existed until President Obama pointed out in which ridicule of the ‘prophet’ Mohammad spread across the Muslim world, with deadly clashes near Western embassies in Tunisia and Sudan, an American fast-food restaurant set ablaze in Lebanon, and international peacekeepers attacked in the Sinai.  Thank you, President Obama, for stirring up violence and anti-American protests.
  47. 2014 Sunday: A North Korean court convicts 24-year-old Matthew Miller, one of three Americans currently held in that crazy nation, of unlawful entry into the country for spying and sentenced him to six years of hard labor.
  48. 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.
  50. 2017 Thursday: In Dhi Qar Governorate in southern Iraq, two ISIS-directed terror attacks claim the lives of at least 60 people and wound countless others.  Wow, the religion of peace strikes again!
  51. 2018 Friday: In a statement released by the White House, U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denied an allegation of sexual misconduct (proven later to be fabricated by Democrats) from when he was in high school, saying, “I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”  He eventually made it through the harrowing process in which the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee and elsewhere in government slimed him and his family.  Democrats beware.
  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.

  62. 2020 Labor Day Monday A: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says he ‘wants to investigate U.S. Postmaster General Louis Dejoy’s businesses before he came to hold his current posts.’ You go, Chuck, you go.  Elsewhere, in the Arabian Sea, the flotilla being led by the USS Nimitz searches the sea for a sailor who went overboard from the veteran aircraft carrier.  Speaking of the U.S. Navy, the Pentagon reports that the communist Chinese have the largest army, navy, coast guard, and air force what with 350 surface ships and submarines to our 293 and are continually adding to their numbers daily.  They also have a large arsenal of intermediate missiles while the U.S. has few to none, due to restrictions the treaty between our nation and Russia imposed on our country.   The Pentagon also reports the Chi-Coms will have the first unmanned stealth bombers in the world as will they double their stockpile of nuclear weapons which informs the world they plan on world domination.  Not good- should have nuked them off the face of the planet back in the 1950s.
  63. 2020 Labor Day Monday B: Nathan Denofre, a man born without both legs below the knees, completed a canoe trip down the entire length of the Mississippi River.  It required 109 days to conduct the trip, a voyage he did to help disabled U.S. vets via a charity called Courage Incorporated Org.  Elsewhere, Los Angeles, California, reported the previous day it hit a record in its ongoing heatwave hitting 121 degrees.  Wow.  Meanwhile, reports hit the news that says 52-percent of young adults aged 19-29 live with one to both parents.  Get your asses out of the house and go the f**k to work!
  64. 2020 Labor Day 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: 27,200,943 confirmed cases, +239,148, 889,842, confirmed deaths, +8,887, and 18,160,102 confirmed recoveries, +139,102.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,397,350 confirmed cases, up 29,385 from yesterday’s reporting, 192,070 confirmed deaths, UP 407, and 3,431,825 confirmed recoveries, UP 19,299.  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: 740,861 confirmed cases, 13,737 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 9,855 confirmed cases, 85 confirmed deaths, and 2,9931 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 80,370 confirmed cases, 2,044 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Arizona- currently, they have 205,970 confirmed cases, 5,221 confirmed deaths, but for some unknown reason NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Doug Ducey, what kind of Republican are you?

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.

If this is going to become the new Deadwood, so be it. We are ready. Note: to all cities appalled at the talk of defunding the police, there is a simple answer: vote every last flipping Democrat out of office ASAP.

In 1976, Roxy Music released their first live album, the wonderful, “Viva!” Of all the English bands of the 1970s-early 1980s, ONLY Roxy Music has the amazing musical ability and talent with which to transcend both space and time through the unique style of their music. The vocals and keyboards of Bryan Ferry intermingled with the minimalistic guitars of Phil Manzanera and the flavors of Andy Mackay’s sax-and-oboe work had the ability to bring tears to the ears of their listeners. Augmented by the rest of the band—Eddie Jobson (violin, keyboards), Paul Thompson (drums), and several bass players—the band delivered a sterling live album compiled from several performances.
