  55. 2019 Tuesday:  The Democrats expand the ever-evolving impeachment inquiry into President Trump by demanding still more records, this time sending subpoenas to the Pentagon and Budget portions of the Executive Branch.  Fishing expedition to be sure.   Meanwhile, a judge gives President Trump a stay in the orders that he produce his tax records so the Democrats can scrutinize them as they search for Russian connections.  Finally, the Democrats scramble as they seek ways to ‘protect the so-called whistleblower’s identity from Trump’s allies.’  They fear something might happen to the POS…
  56. 2020 Thursday: The Committee on Presidential Debates announces the next one is going to be VIRTUAL over fears of the president having had the Chi-Vi.  President Trump- who is slated to host the Rush Limbaugh Show tomorrow all three hours- says, ‘hell, no, because “Pro-China Joe” Biden will be using a teleprompter, will have notes, and for sure an earpiece’ as many suspect he did in their first meeting.  The president will instead hold a BIG CAMPAIGN RALLY while the Biden campaign is searching for something to do in place of the now defunct virtual debate.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, 34 now test positive at the White House with an unnamed security official reported to be ‘gravely ill.’  The Chi-Coms strike yet again.
  57. 2020 Thursday A: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they continue threatening WAR if the United States and Taiwan return to normalized relations which was the case before the world committed the egregious error of welcoming the communist thug nation in the United Nations, the World Health Organization, and began enriching the murderous regime in Beijing by relocating businesses and industries there.  We say, let the Chi-Coms continue threatening war, this if for what GOD made the neutron bomb.
  58. 2020 Thursday B: Left-wing media blasts Vice President Mike Pence for having ‘mansplained’ several topics to the ever angry and highly unattractive Sen. Kamala Harris, the VP nominee on the Democratic Party side.  Men can never win in this era of identity politics, but it was clear to most that Kooky Kamala was on the defensive throughout the 90-minute debate.   Speaking of the Democrats, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says that ‘Democrats will hold a conference call on Friday in which, they will discuss the 25th Amendment.’  They fear that President Trump is somehow compromised by good health, having kicked the Chi-Vi.  Madam Moron Speaker, we would rather have our president in good health than kowtowing to a senile, mumbling, stumbling loser such as you.  Shut up!
  59. 2020 Thursday C: The FBI reports the arrest of five Michigan men and one from Delaware on charges of conspiracy to kidnap despotic Governor Gretchen Whitmer who rules her state as though she is a Maoist dictator.  While we don’t approve the kidnapping of anyone, something is wrong in that state, especially if the self-proclaimed freedom fighter group ANTIFA is not on scene doing battle with her regime.  Says a lot about those phonies.  Speaking of Antifa, the leading mayoral candidate seeking to take Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler’s job, uh, what’s her name, again reiterates past comments: “I AM ANTIFA.”  Yikes.  Another winner of mayor, Seattle’s Jenny Durkan encourages her citizens to ‘vote like their lives depend on it.’  They sure as heck do, we must oust every entrenched and hopeful communist in this nation if we are to save it!  Vote out every Democrat and vote in every Republican on November 3!    
  60. 2020 Thursday D: We mentioned “Lemon-sucking” Nancy Pelosi earlier in our reportage of the day’s events and it is important to note that the woman whose choppers might fall out of her mouth at any instant is the ONLY person standing in the way of Chi-Vi relief.  Although she alluded that she ‘might be favorable to helping U.S. airlines,’ she won’t indulge President Donald J. Trump’s desire to send out $1,200 relief checks to every U.S. citizen.  No, like many Democrats- especially in California, Democrats want to send relief checks to illegal frigging aliens!  This is insane.  People call your congressional representatives and tell them to persuade the senile speaker of the House to set aside partisan politics and to do the right thing for the American people!
  61. 2020 Thursday E: 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: 36,349,500 confirmed cases, +350,894, 1,058,698, confirmed deaths, +5,962, and 25,292,503 confirmed recoveries, +237,016.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,690,026 confirmed cases, up 51,644 from yesterday’s reporting, 215,903 confirmed deaths, UP 1,001, and 4,969,878 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,341.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 285,336 confirmed cases, 1,864 confirmed deaths, and 221,571 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2020 Thursday F: 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: 843,732 confirmed cases, 16,361 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,196 confirmed cases, 164 confirmed deaths, and 10,604 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 95,500 confirmed cases, 2,274 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: North Carolina- currently, they have 225,397 confirmed cases, 3,722 confirmed deaths, but no mention confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Ray Cooper for behaving like your typical Democrat POS and staying mum on the recoveries.
  63. 2020 Thursday G: We had a FAIRLY BIG UPSWING in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,425.51, UP 122.05 points (+0.43%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,420.98, UP 56.38 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,446.83, UP 27.38 points (+0.80%).  Price of GOLD: $1,900.20 per troy oz., +5.10 (+0.27%). Here is the price of SILVER: $24.00 per troy oz., +0.119 (+0.50%).  Price of PLATINUM: $869.60 per troy oz., +5.00 (+0.65%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,403.00 per troy oz., +20.90 (+0.88%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.04 per #, -0.0015 (-0.05%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.29, +0.10 (+0.24%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.64 Taiwanese dollars. 
  64. 2020 Thursday H: Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is (1) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-1) @ the Chicago Bears (3-1) the Bears beat the Bucs 20-19, going to 4-1 while the Bucs dropped to 3-2.   Meanwhile, White House doctors inform President Trump that since he is doing so well in vanquishing the Chi-Vi Xi Jinping sent our way, he can begin making public appearances this weekend.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues going berserk.   She needs to be committed to a mental hospital…
  65. 2021 Friday: BIG day in Major League Baseball.  First, there’s Game 2 in the American League Divisional Series between the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros.  The Astros lead the series 1-0.  The next game is Game 2 in the ALDS between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Rays lead the series 1-0.  Next, the National League Divisional Series begins tonight.  The first game is between the Atlanta Braves at the Milwaukee Brewers while the second game features the Los Angeles Dodgers in San Francisco facing the Giants.  Both are the first game in the two NLDS matchups.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Strange things were occurring within Fairport Convention that caused a schism in the band.  Amazing vocalist Sandy Denny bolted the band to form a short-lived group, Fotheringay, a band we will cover because of her and Steeleye Span which we most likely won’t, concerned they may bear little to no interest for many of our readers even though they have a lengthy discography.  I guess we shall see.  Ah well, Fotheringay released their one and only album while Sandy was still alive, the eponymous “Fotheringay” that came out on June 28, 1970, and featured not only Ms. Denny, but future husband, Trevor Lucas (guitars, basses, harmonicas, and vocals), Jerry Donahue (lead guitar, vocals), Pat Donaldson (bass/vocals), Gerry Conway (Drums), and Linda Thompson and Todd Lloyd (vocals).  If you love the English folk music the way we do as performed by Fairport Convention, Led Zeppelin’s acoustic material, and other similar bands, this is an album that your ears should investigate.  Please, seek it out, give it a listen, and see if it’s right for you- we think you will be glad that you did.

Friday, October 08, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years.  Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[iv] We find it fascinating how ALL defenders of Islam claim it to be a ‘religion of peace.’  It is NO religion of peace, it is one of violence, one in which, if disbelievers or nonbelievers criticize it, Muslims are obligated to commit acts of violence upon them.  We believe ALL of Islam must undergo a Reformation like other modern-day peaceful religions have.  It is time for the followers of Allah to modernize and become civilized.  Editor’s note.

[v] FUCK the unpatriotic protesters.  They are a bunch of pond scum.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

RR. 2008 Tuesday: The federal government indicted Alaska Senator Ted Stevens on seven felony counts of concealing more than a quarter million dollars in house renovations and gifts from a powerful oil contractor. However, after being railroaded out of office, a jury later found the long-time Republican guilty of lying on financial disclosure forms, but a judge subsequently dismissed the case saying prosecutors had withheld evidence.

Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Go get them, Republicans, go get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Congresswoman Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

  57. 2021 Thursday: Here we are, the midpoint of the week for those of us who work seven straight days so let us see what the heck is happening today…let’s hope President Biden has not gotten us into a shooting war…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

We will admit, this is one album we have not heard which is strange as we have heard them all.  It’s also a difficult one to find.  What’s more, they may not be the same Wild Turkey as the one led by former Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick so we will leave it to those who wish to seek it out, give it a listen, and then perhaps enlighten us as to whom exactly the group is and how they sound.  In 12 years, we will admit that we have NEVER been stymied in finding out about a band or its recorded music.  We are stumped!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One can never keep a good thing down and no one could keep Foreigner DOWN.  The latest lineup went into the studio and cranked out the next studio album, a two-CD/1 DVD set called “Can’t Slow Down.”  The first CD is all new material, the second is a remake/remix of older tunes, and the third features DVD performances of the band doing what they do best and that is blowing the socks off the listeners.  Here is the lineup for this effort: Mick Jones (guitars), Thom Gimbel (guitars, vocals, keyboards, and horns), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Brian Tichy (drums), and Kelly Hansen (vocals) as well as some supporting musicians for both the studio and the live recordings.  Say what you will about bands that refuse to die, any music they release is better than any of the crap younger ears are assaulted by day in and day out.  If you want to change the direction of a young person’s life away from some skank with a single name or some K-Pop crap, or God forbid, Maroon Five, this is the way in which, you can flipping do it.

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

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Had the Germans not been sidetracked by having to crush a recalcitrant Yugoslavia, which took six weeks, they would have invaded the Soviet Union in April or early May and most likely would have knocked the USSR out of the war.  The only thing that saved the Russians was “General Winter,” what with freezing cold enveloping the Axis troops.

[ii] Although Italian and Romanian troops had warned the Germans of major movement across the Volga River, the Germans relied on faulty intelligence and believed the Russians were spent and would not launch any counteroffensives over the winter.  Boy, were they wrong, the Russians amassed a humongous force and swept over the Axis troops north and south of the city, trapping the German defenders within the city in one of the largest land battles of the war.

[iii] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

[iv] We offered the music of Queen and of each of its band members beginning on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.   Please seek out the music of this incredible British rock band.  We love them and know you will, too.

[v] Vice President Al Gore did everything possible to steal this election from Republican George W. Bush.  Thankfully, the legal system stopped the attempt but this would not stop the Democrats from trying to do it again in 2016 and once they lost that election, spend every waking moment trying to get Donald J. Trump out of office instead of doing the work of the American people.

[vi] Since spinning off from the Soviet Union, the Ukraine has been among the most corrupt nations in the world as what example did they have to emulate?  Now, in 2019, when President Trump wants to know WTF was going on in 2016 with the spying on him by the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Obama-controlled State Department and U.S. Deep State, everyone goes bat crap crazy.  Enough!  It happened and it is time to find out what exactly happened and who exactly was behind it.

[vii] It is important to note that this Islamist POS tried to transform Egypt into an Islamist nation, opposed to Israel, and allied with the Muslim Brotherhood.  It is important to note that one of his biggest supporters on the world stage was our U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama who never met an extremist he didn’t like.

[viii] The important first step, according to sources, is that President Obama sought to enable the Iranians to develop nuclear weapons so it extremely important that when Donald J. Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election that he tore this crap up and threw it into the wastebasket.

[ix] We hope to begin offering Sly and the Family Stone’s discography sometime in 2022.

  55. 2020 Thursday: The Committee on Presidential Debates announces the next one is going to be VIRTUAL over fears of the president having had the Chi-Vi.  President Trump- who is slated to host the Rush Limbaugh Show tomorrow all three hours- says, ‘hell, no, because “Pro-China Joe” Biden will be using a teleprompter, will have notes, and for sure an earpiece’ as many suspect he did in their first meeting.  The president will instead hold a BIG CAMPAIGN RALLY while the Biden campaign is searching for something to do in place of the now defunct virtual debate.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, 34 now test positive at the White House with an unnamed security official reported to be ‘gravely ill.’  The Chi-Coms strike yet again.
  56. 2020 Thursday A: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they continue threatening WAR if the United States and Taiwan return to normalized relations which was the case before the world committed the egregious error of welcoming the communist thug nation in the United Nations, the World Health Organization, and began enriching the murderous regime in Beijing by relocating businesses and industries there.  We say, let the Chi-Coms continue threatening war, this if for what GOD made the neutron bomb.
  57. 2020 Thursday B: Left-wing media blasts Vice President Mike Pence for having ‘mansplained’ several topics to the ever angry and highly unattractive Sen. Kamala Harris, the VP nominee on the Democratic Party side.  Men can never win in this era of identity politics but it was clear to most that Kooky Kamala was on the defensive throughout the 90-minute debate.   Speaking of the Democrats, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says that ‘Democrats will hold a conference call on Friday in which, they will discuss the 25th Amendment.’  They fear that President Trump is somehow compromised by good health, having kicked the Chi-Vi.  Madam Moron Speaker, we would rather have our president in good health than kowtowing to a senile, mumbling, stumbling loser such as you.  Shut up!
  58. 2020 Thursday C: The FBI reports the arrest of five Michigan men and one from Delaware on charges of conspiracy to kidnap despotic Governor Gretchen Whitmer who rules her state as though she is a Maoist dictator.  While we don’t approve the kidnapping of anyone, something is wrong in that state, especially if the self-proclaimed freedom fighter group ANTIFA is not on scene doing battle with her regime.  Says a lot about those phonies.  Speaking of Antifa, the leading mayoral candidate seeking to take Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler’s job, uh, what’s her name, again reiterates past comments: “I AM ANTIFA.”  Yikes.  Another winner of mayor, Seattle’s Jenny Durkan encourages her citizens to ‘vote like their lives depend on it.’  They sure as heck do, we must oust every entrenched and hopeful communist in this nation if we are to save it!  Vote out every Democrat and vote in every Republican on November 3!
  59. 2020 Thursday D: We mentioned “Lemon-sucking” Nancy Pelosi earlier in our reportage of the day’s events and it is important to note that the woman whose choppers might fall out of her mouth at any instant is the ONLY person standing in the way of Chi-Vi relief.  Although she alluded that she ‘might be favorable to helping U.S. airlines,’ she won’t indulge President Donald J. Trump’s desire to send out $1,200 relief checks to every U.S. citizen.  No, like many Democrats- especially in California, Democrats want to send relief checks to illegal frigging aliens!  This is insane.  People call your congressional representatives and tell them to persuade the senile speaker of the House to set aside partisan politics and to do the right thing for the American people!
  60. 2020 Thursday E: 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: 36,349,500 confirmed cases, +350,894, 1,058,698, confirmed deaths, +5,962, and 25,292,503 confirmed recoveries, +237,016.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,690,026 confirmed cases, up 51,644 from yesterday’s reporting, 215,903 confirmed deaths, UP 1,001, and 4,969,878 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,341.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 285,336 confirmed cases, 1,864 confirmed deaths, and 221,571 confirmed recoveries.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On January 01, 2001, the Move released their next greatest hits package across the globe: “Flowers in the Rain.”  Much more popular in the UK than they ever were in the United States, the album contained 15 essential tracks from throughout the group’s rather short career.  We hope you will check this one out and consider adding it to your collection because despite whatever you might have heard, this band was among the major acts upon which, future bands would lay their foundation.  Please seek it out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years.  Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[iv] We find it fascinating how ALL defenders of Islam claim it to be a ‘religion of peace.’  It is NO religion of peace, it is one of violence, one in which, if disbelievers or nonbelievers criticize it, Muslims are obligated to commit acts of violence upon them.  We believe ALL of Islam must undergo a Reformation like other modern-day peaceful religions have.  It is time for the followers of Allah to modernize and become civilized.  Editor’s note.

[v] FUCK the unpatriotic protesters.  They are a bunch of pond scum.
