  74. 2020 Thursday: U.S. Intel reports that the Chi-Coms- NOT the Russians- were paying Islamist militants in Afghanistan to murder U.S. military personnel in that s-hole country.  When it was reported the Russians were paying Islamist militants in Afghanistan to do the same thing, Democrats wanted President Donald J.

  75. 2020 Thursday A: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they are outraged that President Trump sent U.S. warships through the Straits of Taiwan.  F**k them.  Also, regarding the Chinese communists, leaked hacked documents show that Beijing was doing everything to deflect responsibility for the global Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic onto someone or some other nation rather than on themselves where 100-percent of the blame belongs.  What a bunch of scumbags.   Elsewhere, Vladimir Putin is having a challenging time to find customers for Russia’s ‘Sputnik’ COVID-19 vaccine.  Everyone knows whatever ‘vaccine’ the Russians have produced is CRAP.
  76. 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. 
  77. 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.
  78. 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.
  79. 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.
  80. 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.
  81. 2020 Thursday G: In Verona, Pennsylvania, former 76th U.S. Attorney General Richard “Dick” Thornburg died at the age of 88.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan from August 12, 1985, to August 15, 1991.  Prior to this, he would serve his nation as its 71.1st Acting U.S. attorney general.  In this capacity, he served President Gerald R. Ford from January 20, 1977, to January 26, 1977.
  82. 2021 Friday: 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…anyhow, have a safe and sane New Year’s Eve and Day.  God bless, see you all tomorrow.

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

  74. 2021 Wednesday G: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- As resistance and growing outrage continues to rise over the mandates imposed by Joe Biden regarding Chi-Vi vaccines, In-N-Out Burger says the beloved chain is not going to serve as the government’s agent in San Francisco.  It will not check vaccination status and it will not segregate its customers.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime is now preparing to demand that children ages 5-11 submit to the frigging vaccines.  This is crazy.  Saul Berenson told Tucker Carlson tonight that only Tucker is reporting the RISE in deaths- mostly related to heart anomalies- following the jab.  Apparently, these numbers are on the rise around the globe.  And they still want us to take the frigging shot?  My Christian friends call it ‘mark of the beast’ and I am inclined to agree- Mo.  Finally, now that people are rising up against taking the Chi-Vi vaccines, the new scare tactic is on: the Delta subvariant is on the rise and everyone should be terrified although the Chi-Vi vaccines are now reportedly good for that strain of the virus, too.

  80. 2021 Wednesday M: JOE BIDEN’S DAILY DISASTER- Joe Biden continues crashing and burning (as does everyone else around him).  We call it ‘Karma,’ you said that YOU had the greatest election-stealing apparatus the world had ever seen back in 2020 and you did it on video.  You are reaping your just reward.  Quinnipiac says that Joe Biden’s approval rating now stands at 37-percent which means- at least to us- that the polls are probably closer to 27-percent.  Even more disturbing for senile Joe is the fact that 62-percent of the American people blame him for the crumbling economy (no matter how much they brag it up) and for the rising inflation.  Joe, admit what you and your handlers did in November of last year and maybe- just maybe- the Lord will forgive you.  Otherwise, burn in hell.   In other bad news for Joe Biden, there are reports- although denied by the principal- that unless the spending bills come down a notch- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, could become an independent.  He denies this of course.
  81. 2021 Wednesday N: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- The Biden regime is considering deploying the National Guard to alleviate the shortage of truckers on the West Coast (although they won’t deploy them to the U.S.-Mexico border).  Next, the regime says Joe Biden is concerned about his friends the Chi-Coms development of hypersonic missiles.  Put that chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley on it right away; oh, wait, he’s pals with the Chi-Coms, too.  (Note- what the hell is happening to our country that we have losers such as these in charge of it?)
  82. 2021 Wednesday O: NANCY PELOSI’S JANUARY 06-2021 FALSE FLAG OPERATION- Now that the sham committee on Nancy Pelosi’s FALSE FLAG OPERATION has placed Steve Bannon on criminal contempt, what the bogus show trial of a committee does to him will show just how far the power of the nonagenarian speaker and her underlings possesses.  Mr. Bannon, plead the FIFTH- F**k them.
  83. 2021 Wednesday P: BIG TECH NEWS- Facebook says it’s going to change its name.  Like they say, you can take a dog turd, cover it in chocolate, roll it around in sprinkles, even lavish it with whipped cream, chopped maraschino cherries, chopped walnuts, and whatever else one desires, and it still is a dog turd, plain and simple.   Here’s a suggestion for that POS Little Marky Zuckerberg- just call it “BIG BROTHER.”  After all, you are Orwellian, my friend, extremely Orwellian.  Next, PayPal offers to buy Pinterest for $45 billion.  (Note-who the hell would spend that kind of money for a posting board?  That is insane).
  84. 2021 Wednesday Q: SPORTS NEWS I- In Game 5 of the ALCS, the Houston Astros (99-70) whooped the Boston Red Sox (98-73)- in Boston- by a final score of 9-1.  In Game 4 of the NLCS, the Atlanta Braves (94-74) delivered the Los Angeles Dodgers (111-60) a near fatal stroke by pounding them 9-2 to take a 3-1 lead.
  85. 2021 Wednesday R: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3605 what with a $27 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 12, 30, 38, 46, and Mega 19.  The highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,986 apiece.  Out of 100,668 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,986 apiece.  The first winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Santa Rosa, CA, 95405 while the second ticket was sold at Vons in Oxnard, CA, 93035.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #900 with a jackpot of $73 million up for grabs:   07, 29, 36, 41, 43, and Power 05.  Out of 38,573 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $19,607.
  86. 2021 Wednesday S: We encourage everyone to stick around to find out with us what the Chi-Com puppet-masters and their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to stick around today so and find out with us; we will keep the world apprised of their nefarious wrongdoings…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album Fairport Convention released was the group’s first live album, “Fairport Live Convention,” on July 21, 1974.  Recorded at three different venues, this was a glorious effort as it featured Sandy Denny back in the fold.   Besides Ms. Denny on vocals and piano, the band features (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars and vocals) (3) Jerry Donahue (lead guitar and backing vocals) (4) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars) and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano).  Each song is unique, the overall sound grand, and all we can say is that we wholly recommend this album to fans of both the blog and of the band.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and then add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did- we guarantee it.

Should Trump lose and Biden-Harris win on Election Day, I sincerely doubt that the top of the ticket would make it out of November and that the bottom would assume power, a puppet of Xi Jinping for good

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] 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.

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

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

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

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

[vii] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

  51. 2019 Saturday: University of Michigan student and Miss Michigan- Kathy Zhu- found herself stripped of her as a participant in the Miss World America because of past tweets (here we go again) and her conservative views.   As a proud conservative and supporter of President Donald J.

  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.

EE. 1965 Tuesday: Muhammad Ali knocked out Sonny Liston in the first round of their world heavyweight title rematch in Lewiston, Maine. Ali’s victory generated controversy over whether he had truly connected when he sent Liston crashing to the canvass with a right to the head, or whether it was a “phantom punch,” implying that someone had fixed the match. We will never know.

  59. 2019 Saturday: A powerful twister roars through the town of El Reno, Oklahoma, killing at least two and injuring numerous others.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump goes around Congress to make sure a multi-billion dollar sale of arms to Saudi Arabia occurs.  Democrats are angry at this because they want to deny the Saudis the weapons with which to defend themselves from the Iranians because they are still pissed off over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.
  60. 2020 Memorial Day Monday: Failed New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, releases a 51-page edict outlining how the state will reopen in the event COVID-19- communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ which is sad.  The (former) Empire State will never be the same what with a constant stream of middle-and-upper-middle class citizens leaving for elsewhere.  Here are the statistics for the Wuhan Virus for today, first the globe: 5,490,954 confirmed cases, 345,962 confirmed deaths, but 2,228,952 confirmed recoveries which is amazing and a good sign.
  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. 
  62. 2020 Memorial Day Monday B: In the three states in which the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 94,558 confirmed cases, 3,785 confirmed deaths, BUT NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which demonstrates the scumbag Gov. 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.

[i] We hope to present the music of the Nice as well as Emerson, Lake & Palmer at some point within the next five years.  Please remain posted for the day that we do.

[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.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of the Outlaws when we begin promoting the music of country artists.  Please remain alert for the day we do as you will enjoy them.

[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.

  67. 2020 Thursday: U.S. Intel reports that the Chi-Coms- NOT the Russians- were paying Islamist militants in Afghanistan to murder U.S. military personnel in that s-hole country.  When it was reported the Russians were paying Islamist militants in Afghanistan to do the same thing, Democrats wanted President Donald J.

  68. 2020 Thursday A: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they are outraged that President Trump sent U.S. warships through the Straits of Taiwan.  F**k them.  Also regarding the Chinese communists, leaked hacked documents show that Beijing was doing everything to deflect responsibility for the global Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic onto someone or some other nation rather than on themselves where 100-percent of the blame belongs.  What a bunch of scumbags.   Elsewhere, Vladimir Putin is having a challenging time to find customers for Russia’s ‘Sputnik’ COVID-19 vaccine.  Everyone knows whatever ‘vaccine’ the Russians have produced is CRAP.
  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.
