  54. 2020 Monday B: Statistics for shootings in Chicago over the weekend are in: 71 people shot and 12 dead.  In New York City, 30 people were shot over the weekend with 10 dead.  Where are Black Lives Matter?  Nowhere because BLM is little more than a left-wing hate group and not a group determined to protect black Americans from violence. 
  55. 2020 Monday C: St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner- a political hack of the highest degree- filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for having ‘brandished their weapons in an unlawful manner at PEACEFUL PROTESTERS’ threatening to burn down their home, murder, and rape them, and kill their dog.  This is what happens when former Nazi George Soros buys state attorneys general , secretaries of state, and district attorneys at all levels.  We must stop this POS from undermining the country.
  56. 2021 Tuesday: This looks like it’s going to be a busy week what with the Joestapo going door to door to give people their ‘shots.’  F**k them.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On January 03, 2003, Blodwyn Pig released their next LIVE album and what a good one it was: “Blues Live.”  Joining the fiery guitarist were the legendary Jack Lancaster (horns, woodwinds, violins, and flutes), Andy Pyle (bass), and Clive Bunker (drums) and a later lineup of Mick Abrams (guitars and vocals), Mike Summerland (bass and vocals), Graham Walker (drums), and Dave Lennox (keyboards and vocals)..  There are 15 great tunes on this CD culled from two superb concerts, an album we encourage everyone to buy as Mr. Abrams is one of the all-time great guitarists.  He should be on the list of all-time greats such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Kim Simmonds, and Alvin Lee.  We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite site for the absolute best in music and will then add it to your ever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved albums.  Enjoy.

  61. 2020 Memorial Day Monday A: Here are the statistics for the United States: 1,696,874 confirmed cases, 99,459 confirmed deaths, but 352,612 confirmed recoveries which would resemble the percentage of the globe IF the various Blue State governors would be honest and present the numbers of recoveries but they won’t.  They seek to keep things locked down which in our view is criminal: it demonstrates the COLLUSION between the Democratic Party and their communist Chinese taskmasters in Beijing and here in our country.  We must thwart them.

Gavin Newsom KNOWS that if he shared them, NO one would obey his stay-at-home orders.  In Hawaii, here are the figures: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 591 confirmed recoveries for which, we must thank Gov. David Ige for his honesty.  Finally, in Washington state where whacked-out Governor Jay Inslee holds power (people, vote this baboon out!), here are the stats: 20,065 confirmed cases, 1,070 confirmed deaths, and sadly, like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  You know, Washington was once a wonderful state but now- in the grip of Democrats- languishes in the throes of Democratic-Socialism!  Free California!  Free Washington!  Free Tibet!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free and independent Taiwan (until they liberate the mainland)!  Free from Democratic-Socialism and Communism!  
  63. 2021 Tuesday: Everyone knows the drill.  Stick around to discover the truth and note- we know the world is up to its usual tricks…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After falling out with undisputed leader of Jethro Tull- Ian Anderson- Mick Abrahams abandoned ship and formed his own band, Blodwyn Pig.  Joining the fiery guitarist were the legendary Jack Lancaster (horns, woodwinds, violins, and flutes), Andy Pyle (bass), and Rob Berg (drums).  The group’s first album, “Ahead Rings Out,” came out on July 20, 1969, and it made the Top 10 of the British music charts.  Filled with a heady mixture of English blues interpretations, jazzy fills, and a powerhouse rhythm section, the album is a joy to behold.  We encourage everyone to seek this album out wherever they shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be awfully glad you did.  We guarantee it.

[ii] We promoted the music of Blossom Toes beginning on Monday, 01-June-2015 through Sunday, 07-June-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[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.  Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too.  Perhaps one day we will.

[vi] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of the legendary British band, the Pretty Things, but when we do, you will love them so remain vigilant for the day we do.

[vii] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

[viii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt..  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

  69. 2020 Thursday B: The father of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is requesting French citizenship ahead of Brexit which is official at 12:01 A.M. tonight.  Elsewhere, many IT security officials and techs believe the Chi-Com hack of SolarWinds occurred much earlier than believed- so says, U.S. Senator Mark Warner of Virginia.  Moving on, ever the pessimist, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says he’s doubtful that Senator Josh Hawley’s challenges to the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election vote is going to be successful. 
  70. 2020 Thursday C: Jobless claims in the U.S. drop the second week in a row what with 787,000 new claims.  Elsewhere, serial killer Samuel Little dies in the joint at age 80.  The man is credited with the killings of 93 women from 1970 to 2005.   Meanwhile, the Georgia GOP has recruited 8,000 poll watchers who plan to observe every facet of the elections next week.  We shall see if they will be bullied again.  Finally, a tornado touched down briefly in Corsicana, Texas, destroying several homes.
  71. 2020 Thursday D: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 83,338,512 confirmed cases, UP by 827,952 cases, 1,815,864 confirmed deaths, UP by 15,464 deaths, and 46,993,335 confirmed recoveries, UP by 353,269 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S): 19,910,674 confirmed cases, UP by 197,630 new cases, 344,877 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,693 new deaths, and 8,757,150 confirmed recoveries, UP by 94,066 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: 416,584 confirmed cases, 3,307 confirmed deaths, and 372,284 confirmed recoveries.
  72. 2020 Thursday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 2,282,219 confirmed cases, 25,449 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,397 confirmed cases, 288 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: 247,575 confirmed cases, 3,486 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-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, Alabama: 361,226 confirmed number of cases, 4,827 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.
  73. 2020 Thursday F:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,606.48, UP 196.92 points (+0.65%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,888.28, UP 18.28 points (+0.14%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,756.07, UP 24.03 points (+0.64%).  The price of GOLD is $1,895.10 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.18%) while the price of SILVER is $26.41 per troy ounce, -0.413 (-1.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,079.20 per troy oz, -3.00 (-0.28%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, -0.0255 (-0.72%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,453.80 per troy oz, +75.40 (+3.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.52 per barrel, +0.22 (+0.46%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.  In other economic news, the IMF says that should be used to determine an individual’s credit scores…WTF?  Meanwhile, tomorrow, 20 states will be raising their minimum wage.
  74. 2020 Thursday G: Here it is, New Year’s Eve and no one knows what the scoundrels in Beijing or their patsies in the Democratic Party are up to today which is why we encourage everyone to stick around and discover their crimes and misdeeds with us…curious?  We sure the heck are…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next solo album by vocalist Peter Wolf- “Fool’s Parade,” came out on September 29, 1998 and lo and behold, Jann Wenner- reclusive founder of the magazine “Rolling Stone” labeled it as among the essential recordings of the 1990s.  Wolf brought together another group of talented musicians to help him create a fine rock and roll effort.  Johnny A., Steve Conte, and Cornell Dupree performed guitars as Tony Beard did drums, John Conte, bass, as well as a coterie of others to help round out the sound.  This is a wonderful album; one we encourage everyone to seek out wherever they shop for the absolute best in rock and roll music and give it a good listen.  We think you will add it to your growing collection of nothing but the best in rock music- something we have been promoting since our founding in 2009.
