  50. 2006 Monday: North Korea conducts its first nuclear weapons test.  For doing so, the NOKOs faced a barrage of condemnation and calls for retaliation after it announced that it had set off a small nuclear weapon underground; President George W. Bush said, “The international community will respond,” which it really didn’t and so in 2020, we find ourselves where the f**k we are with a belligerent North Korea.  Finally, Google Inc. announced it was snapping up YouTube Inc., for $1.65 billion in a stock deal.
  51. 2009 Friday: NASA launched the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS).  On November 13, NASA officials announced that the satellite discovered water in the planned impact plume on the moon.  Elsewhere, in one of the greatest practical jokes played on the world, the Nobel Peace Prize went to President Barack Hussein Obama for what the Norwegian Nobel Committee called “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”  However, President Obama NEVER closed Gitmo and had American troops involved in more military actions around the world than ever before so awarding him the prestigious price was like awarding a jihadist for sawing off heads of unbelievers. 
  52. 2010 Saturday: Wild celebrations occur as a drill breaks through to the underground chamber in which, a cave-in entombed 33 Chilean miners underground for a lengthy period.
  53. 2011 Sunday: New York City continues to reel as Occupy Wall Street protests- Astroturf to be sure- continue to grind on.  City government seems to be content for them to continue which is music to the ears of the Obama administration, terrified of the grassroots Tea Party Movement.  Meanwhile, across the country, various locales from Iowa to Seattle to other cities announce mass arrests of Occupy protesters.  Lock ‘em up; throw away the key!  Meanwhile, the Obama administration continues to fight a court order demanding it hand over the secret memo authorizing the assassination of jihadist Muslim-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in northern Yemen.   A drone strike took the piece of s**t out and we congratulate the administration on doing its job.   
  54. 2012 Tuesday: In the Swat district of northern Pakistan, Taliban hitmen track down outspoken female student Malala Yousafzai as she is boarding a school bus and shoot her three times in the head.  A defender of women’s rights and of education for ALL women in Pakistan, the Taliban cannot permit such an outrage.  Luckily for her, she was rescued and spirited off to Western Europe for life-saving treatment.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: When Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke leaves office, U.S. President Barack Obama has nominated Janet Yellin to take his place.  Meanwhile, in the Central African Republican, rival militias and Seleka rebels go after one another leading to at least 60 deaths and scores more wounded. 
  56. 2014 Thursday: The U.S. stock market decreases sharply, with the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average each sinking by about 2 percent.  Meanwhile, U.S. airstrikes against ISIS ramp up as the murderous jihad group continues launching attacks against the border town of Kobani.  The Islamist scum are trying to sever life-saving supplies from coming into Syria.  Where oh where is Barack Obama?  You called these guys the ‘JV team.’  Time to wipe them out with ground troops!
  57. 2015 Friday:  U.S. Congressman Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, announces that he is planning to seek the position of speaker of the House.  Meanwhile, as President Barack Obama is meeting with families of the mass shooting in Roseburg, Oregon, two separate shootings occur in Arizona and Texas.  An 18-year-old punk with a gun opened fire at Northern Arizona University killing one and wounding three.  Elsewhere, in Texas Southern University, a second shooter took the life of one person and wounded another.  Both shootings appear to be the results of disputes.   
  58. 2016 Sunday: At Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, the second debate between presidential candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democrat, and Donald J. Trump, GOP, occurs.  This is an ugly event in which both tore into one another   Later, observers would say that “Hillary mopped the floor with the New York billionaire.”  Uh, okay.
  59. 2017 Monday: Following a barrage of allegations of sexual misconduct, the Weinstein Company fires Harvey Weinstein.  Meanwhile, wildfires continue raging across Northern California, thanks to decades of forest mismanagement due to liberals ass-kissing environmentalists.  This is crazy.  At least 10 people have died.  What is clear is that Democrats must be toppled because they are killing the state.  Strip qualified immunity from government officials and prosecute the living bejezzus out of them.  Elsewhere, the White House announces to the horror of liberals that it is going to withdraw from Barack Hussein Obama’s Clean Power Plan.  Go to it!  Finally, police continue searching for the ‘motive’ of Stephen Paddock, the murderer of 58 people at a music festival eight days earlier- because they are ‘unclear’ as to why he did what he did.  He was a leftist, he despised Country Music fans, believing them to be TRUMP SUPPORTERS.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announces she is going to relinquish the post at the end of the year.  Some speculate that Ambassador Haley, also the former governor of South Carolina, might challenge President Donald J. Trump for the GOP 2020 presidential nomination.  She didn’t.  Elsewhere, as the hubbub over murdered Saudi-American journalist Jamal Khashoggi continues to dominate the news, Turkish officials announce that Saudi hitmen used a bone saw to dismember the slain journalist.  Finally, the United Nations- on behalf of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un- says that ’40 percent of North Koreans are undernourished and in need of immediate food aid.’  Stop being communists, open the doors to freedom and observe what happens!  President Donald J. Trump has tried to help you.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Following President Donald J. Trump’s decision to pull back U.S. forces in northern Syria, the Turkish military commences airstrikes on Kurdish forces who have been battling both ISIS and the corrupt, murderous government of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.  Meanwhile, in northern California, as high winds increase the spread of wildfires devouring the state, PG&E announces they are flipping the switch on power to nearly one-million people.  Folks, the responsibility for the mayhem lies with the state’s Democrat-controlled government.  VOTE THEM OUT!  RECALL THE ONES YOU CAN!  California’s survival is at stake!
  62. 2020 Friday: In a highly anticipated move, the Nobel Peace Prize committee dumps President Donald J. Trump in favor of the World Food Program.  C’ est la vie. ‘Hacked emails’ come out that showed Steve Scully and the Mooch- Anthony Scaramucci- colluding on what to do with Trump should the virtual debate occur next week- Scully asked the Mooch if he could ‘cut Trump off?’  Not sure what the Mooch said but this bogus event is a no-go.   Moving on, in Michigan, despotic Governor Gretchen Whitmer ‘thanks’ law enforcement for saving her from a militia group then calls Donald J. Trump a ‘racist.’   Woman, the FBI should have allowed them to ‘disappear you.’  JUST JOKING, people…
  63. 2020 Friday A: The United States slaps tariffs on 18 nations over the importing of aluminum sheets.  President Trump is doing his best to protect American workers.   The Trump administration is suing Yale University over its blatant racism in determining who and who does not enter its university.  Everyone knows they tilt everything in favor of Third World blacks and browns while not allowing whites- unless they come from privileged families like the Cuomo Family- and yellow students.  Good, crack down on these bigoted universities.  Moving on, we learn today that the VP debate that occurred on Tuesday was the second-highest-watched vice-presidential debate, pulling in 58 million viewers.  Finally, with 6.6 million early votes already in, the Democrats are beginning to fret over mail-in voting as more mail-in ballots disappear and numerous others are thrown out for stupid mistakes.  Folks, we have heard some GOP hirelings tell us that IF the Democrats ‘discover’ 500 ballots in the trunk of an automobile or along a railroad track, the GOP will find 750 to 1,000 ballots wherever they appear.  It is clear that the GOP no longer is going to allow the Democrats to run their election-stealing tactics without answering them.  This is going to be fun!
  64. 2020 Friday B: President Donald J. Trump urges GOP House leaders to make a BIG DEAL with the Democratic-Socialists over Chi-Vi relief for the American people.  He wants to help them whereas the Democrats want them to suffer in the lame hope that somehow the aching people will vote for “Pro-China Joe” Biden and the Democrats.  How stupid is that?  Everyone knows who is responsible for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party.  Period.  Meanwhile, famed New York Yankees pitcher Whitey Ford dies at age 91.  
  65. 2020 Friday C: Declining House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Democrat, and fellow hack Jaime Raskin of Maryland announce the formation of a 25th Amendment committee that will determine whether presidents are fit to serve.  With no hope of passage in the U.S. Senate or of Donald Trump signing his name to the bill should it arrive in the Oval Office, this demonstrates that yet again, the Democrats are spinning their wheels.  What this faux action tells attentive observers is that the Dems know they are going to go down to defeat across the nation on November 3 and that “Mumbles” Pelosi will most likely be going down with them.  It also demonstrates that the Dems understand that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is little more than a walking, talking vegetable and that they should somehow steal the election and he and Kooky Kamala win, the former VP will be out of office before he ever sets foot in it.  How diabolical!  Madam Speaker, you need to include the office of the Speaker of the House of Representatives in the 25th Amendment because YOU must be removed ASAP.  Talk about mentally deficient- you are the poster child for Alzheimer’s disease.
  66. 2020 Friday D: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announces that the government has recovered the missing 30,000 emails of former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and that they will soon undergo release to the American people.  However, U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham says information on the spying into the Trump campaign and then in the White House back in 2016 will come out post-Election Day.   It is what it is…
  67. 2020 Friday E: The Presidential Debate Commission- a highly partisan, anti-conservative entity that drives right-of-center Republicans insane throws in the towel on any remaining debates now that the American people have seen that it’s all a bunch of bull crap.  As Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, told Greg Kelly on Newsmax, debates should have one liberal and one conservative commentator for fairness, say Rachel Maddow and Mark Levin.  We agree, we think most fair-minded people would accept an arrangement such as this.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom says ‘he is going to establish a blue-ribbon commission (still more people to be added to the Golden State’s imploding public employees payroll) to study reparations for slavery’ in a state that never was a slaveholding state and which fought for the North.  Now, this POS is a hack, IF this comes to fruition, the money will come from taxpayers and will be distributed to those deemed deserving of it.  They will receive their checks for reparations and then the following year, have to declare whatever the amounts they receive on their taxes.  HOW is this flipping right?  RECALL this moron NOW!
  68. 2020 Friday F: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 36,706,213 confirmed cases, +333,517, 1,064,420, confirmed deaths, +4,804, and 25,510,507 confirmed recoveries, +176,538.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,757,509 confirmed cases, up 67,809 from yesterday’s reporting, 216,990 confirmed deaths, UP 1,087, and 4,987,156 confirmed recoveries, UP 17,278.  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: 848,376 confirmed cases, 16,454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,300 confirmed cases, 166 confirmed deaths, and 10,651 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 96,363 confirmed cases, 2,281 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 287,858 confirmed cases, 1,886 confirmed deaths, and 225,248 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Tennessee- currently, they have 211,003 confirmed cases, 2,731 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Bill Lee, for withholding the numbers of recoveries.
  69. 2020 Friday G: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,586.90, UP 161.39 points (+0.57%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,579.94, UP 158.96 points (+1.39%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,477.13, UP 30.30 points (+0.88%).  Price of GOLD: $1,936.30 per troy oz., +10.10 (+0.76%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $25.30 per troy oz., +0.192 (+0.70%).  Price of PLATINUM: $897.80 per troy oz., +3.50 (+0.39%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,442.00 per troy oz., +61.50 (+2.58%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.98 per #, +0.0025 (+0.08%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.52, -0.08 (-0.20%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.69 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.67 Afghan afghani.
  70. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the Mega-Million #1597: 05, 11, 25, 27, 64, and Mega 13.  The jackpot is $60 million.  (Highest winners were two who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $19,347 apiece).
  71. 2021 Saturday: As usual, the day is young so stick around to discover/uncover whatever shenanigans between the Democratic Party goobers and their bosses in Beijing are up to as well as whatever else is to come as we count down the days to Election Day and a repudiation of all-things LIBERAL.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “Full House”- came out on July 18,1970.  The album featured a stripped down, lean, mean, music-fighting machine featuring NO female vocalist for the first time in the group’s history.  However, the band did feature Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  You can see, hear, and feel Richard Thompson’s growing power within the band, power that would eventually propel him out on his own being a rocker at heart.  We love this album as we know you will so why waste time?  Seek it out now, give it a listen, and make it a part of your daily listening enjoyment.  You will be glad you did.  Undoubtedly!

336. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, DECEMBER 01, 2020

V. 1941 Monday: Japan’s Emperor Hirohito approved waging war against the United States, Britain, and the Netherlands after his government rejected demands in the Hull Note.

  65. 2020 Tuesday F: Here the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions $1612 Draw with a $229,000,000 jackpot up for grabs: 07, 33, 53, 61, 65, and Mega 14.  Out of 87,418 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but not the Mega for a prize of $889,678.  The store that sold the winning ticket was the Giant K Market at 606 Crouch Street, Oceanside, California, 92054.
  66. 2020 Tuesday G: At the White House Christmas party, President Donald J. Trump mentioned that IF he honestly lost the 2020 Presidential Election, we could see him make a second run in 2024.  Only one other president- Grover Cleveland- accomplished this by being the 22nd and the 24th presidents of the United States.   Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard becomes yet another industry located in California to throw in the towel and to announce it’s moving to Texas.  Note- just don’t bring your left-wing politics with you and tear up the Lone Star State.  Elsewhere, former President Barack Hussein Obama slams those seeking to ‘defund the police,’ calling them ‘crazy.’   Speaking of the police, the Fraternal Order of Police reports that in 2020, 283 cops have been shot across the country with an astounding number of 44 killed in action.  This is not good and it must stop.  In Seattle, lawmakers plan to slash the Seattle Police Department’s budget for 2021 by 18-percent all the while homicides within the city are skyrocketing.  So far this year, 55 people have been murdered in the city.  In Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, violent car-jackings are up by a whopping 537 percent.

  71. 2020 Monday D: NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg says that the Chi-Coms pose a significant risk to member nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization which the communist Chinese do so all European nations suckered into participating in the Belt and Roads Initiative must separate from Beijing NOW.  Meanwhile, Congress returns from its Thanksgiving recess with a number of major spending bills still on the agenda.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy announces its fire-ravaged San Diego based amphibious assault ship will be decommissioned after having suffered a mysterious blaze that nearly totaled the ship earlier in the year.  Finally, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is investigating out of state and foreign entities attempting to set up residence in the Peach State so they can interfere in the two U.S. Senate run-off races in January.

  73.  2020 Monday F: Another one bites the dust: California Congresswoman Christy Smith of the 25th House District concedes the election to Republican candidate Mike Garcia.  Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi loses yet another seat bringing her majority down even further.  This is what happens when you promote socialism in a FREE nation.  Meanwhile, schools in San Francisco are considering renaming 42 of the schools within their city, removing names such as “Lincoln” and “Feinstein” in an effort to remove racist or oppressive names so as not to cause students to break down in tears.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Apple, Nike, and Coca-Cola deny they employed lobbyists to weaken a bill in Congress that would force U.S. companies to put disclaimers on their products regarding using Chi-Com concentration camp inmates to manufacture their products.  We find this shocking.  Everyone at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will buy no more products from these three companies and advise that you don’t either until they sever ties with Beijing and their thugs and the communists release all the Uighurs currently being held in captivity.   Apple, Nike, and Coca-Cola say if they must do this, it will harm supply chains.  Well, how about making your fricking products in the United States again?
  74. 2020 Monday G: For the second straight month in a row, Americans signed less mortgage contracts than they did the previous month due to lack of available housing what with COVID-19 lockdowns halting construction as well as lack of confidence that if “Pro-China Joe” Biden actually schemes his way into the White House, lockdowns and harsher restrictions will create havoc with employment.

  57. 2015 Friday: The Obama administration announces it will send U.S. ground troops to fight ISIS in Syria.  Had the administration kept troops in Iraq instead of pulling them out posthaste and leaving all our military equipment there, ISIS would indeed have been the “JV team” that Obama labeled it as.
  58. 2016 Sunday: FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey[viii] reopens the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s ‘missing emails’ approximately one week out from Election Day.  Everyone is curious as to why this corrupt POS would do such a thing, especially the Clinton campaign.   Elsewhere, Saudi-led coalition aircraft attack Houthi rebels in Yemen killing at least 60 of the scumbags.  Keep killing them.  Meanwhile, in Game 5 of the World Series, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians by a score of 3-2.     
  59. 2017 Monday: After former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Rick Gates surrender to the FBI, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, aka the Boy Scout, announces his first indictments in the Trump-Russia Collusion investigation.  (In 2020, following a failed impeachment, the world would learn that the entire thing was a sham and that the Democrats were running a coup).  Elsewhere, on Capitol Hill, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis tell lawmakers they believe the Trump administration has the right to wage war on ANYONE around the globe suspected of terrorism.  Sounds like these two goobers are seeking avenues by which, they can wage endless wars, something against which, President Trump fought.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump says he is looking at ways of ending ‘birthright citizenship’ in the U.S. where ANYONE born in the country- regardless of citizenship or immigration status (meaning ILLEGAL ALIENS) automatically become U.S. citizens.  Friends, this should have happened decades ago as we have a national industry by which illegals cross our borders and foal their calves.  This must stop NOW.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Across the state of California, massive wildfires continue burning down vast stretches of the state.  Flames are threatening the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library as fire crews struggle to contain them.  More than 30,000 people have had to flee their homes.  Liberals screech about “CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!  WE ONLY HAVE 2-3 YEARS BEFORE THE PLANET DIES.”  Yet, north of Washington state and south of California into Mexico, NO fires blaze away.  Conservatives say, “Let’s do proper forest management and water conservation.”  Plain and simple.  Elsewhere, in a decisive Game 7 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Houston, winning their first championship and also becoming the first team to win four road games.  They lost all three at home in Washington, D.C.   The Willie Mays Most Valuable Player Award goes to pitcher Stephen Strasburg for his two winning performances but especially his Game 6 performance pitching into the 8th inning.   Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, 50 youthful climate change activists (alarmists) stage a sit-in at House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s office.  Stop wasting your time, kids, the speaker cares nothing about you.

Trump.  Elsewhere, we learn that 25 legislators are pressuring Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pack the U.S. Supreme Court as soon as the Dems regain control of the U.S. Senate which they anticipate doing soon.  Moving on, Hostess Twinkie Don Lemon on CNN calls Trump supporters ‘drug addicts,’ that he has to cut many people lose and until they hit rock bottom and ask for help, he wants nothing to do with them.  Wow.  Business Insider reports that legions of journalists are donating to Democratic candidates, something media organizations used to discourage but nowadays, seemingly promote.
  63. 2020 Friday A: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says that Wall Street donations to “Pro-China Joe” Biden are ‘befuddling.’  Biden plans on taxing Wall Street banks out of existence with the appointment of Sen. Liz Warren, D-Massachusetts, to Treasury secretary.  That woman wants to dish out a whole lotta payback.  Elsewhere, in Minnesota, a federal appeals court upends the state’s plan on extending mail-in voting and registration times.  Down in Florida, early voting sites close down due to spikes in COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, the “Baby Evita,” AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (real name: Sandy Cortez), a day after appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in a $14,000 wardrobe ensemble that drove some Republicans to point out the hypocrisy exhibited by the socialist skank leads her to say to them, “Drink some water and don’t be a racist.”  Uh, okay.  We hope you lose on Tuesday. 
  64. 2020 Friday B: President Donald J. Trump is stumping the campaign trail holding 14 rallies in 3 days.  Meanwhile, decrepit old “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to states that should be locks for him because they are leaning towards Trump.  Going to be a hot and heavy finish.  Meanwhile, RNC chairperson Ronna McDaniel says Republicans are winning the early voting turnout as GOPPERS are flocking to the polls expecting riots, assaults, and even homicide on Election Day in many parts of the country.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 45,466,721 confirmed cases, +561,201, 1,186,913, confirmed deaths, +7,702, and 30,583,602 confirmed recoveries, +380,131.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,129,855 confirmed cases, up 86,485 from yesterday’s reporting, 233,117 confirmed deaths, UP 923, and 5,531,311 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,728.  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: 928,240 confirmed cases, 17,581 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,046 confirmed cases, 216 confirmed deaths, and 11,682 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 110,777 confirmed cases, 2,463 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 308,840 confirmed cases, 2,329 confirmed deaths, and 290,130 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 941,851 confirmed cases, 18,373 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries- por que?
  66. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,501.60, DOWN 157.51 points (-0.59%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,911.59, DOWN 274.00 points (-2.45%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,269.96, DOWN 40.15 points (-1.21%).  Price of GOLD: $1,878.80 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.72 per troy oz., +0.069 (+0.29%).  Price of PLATINUM: $847.00 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.17%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,217.20 per troy oz., +18.70 (+0.85%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.05 per #, +0.003 (+0.10%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $35.72, -0.07 (-0.20%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.69 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.73 Afghan afghani.
  67. 2020 Friday E: A Connecticut judge says that Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy’s widow, Ethel, will not face another trial after spending years in prison for the murder of Martha Moxley, decades ago.  Controversy has forever swirled around this case as many believe that since he is a relative of the legendary Kennedy Family, that he was unfairly targeted for the murder of the 15-year-old Moxley at one of the family’s seaside residences back in 1975.  Some suspect that the so-called “Lion of the Senate”- Senator Teddy Kennedy- might have had a hand in it and Skakel paid the price.  The prosecutor says the case cannot be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt and so Skakel will emerge a free man after 45 years in the slammer.  Good for you. 
  68. 2020 Friday F: Tens of thousands of members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ are protesting in streets across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia protesting France’s crackdown on Muslim extremists following the murders of three women- one beheaded- in the Basilica of Notre Dame in Nice.  France through stupid policies that have allowed in armies of people who will never become ‘French’ has led to them going berserk whenever they perceive someone has criticized their backward faith.  Look, undergo a flipping reformation already and join the modern world.  Congratulations, France, for doing what must be done.
  69. 2020 Friday G: Texas voters have cast more than 9 million early votes which is more than the entirety of the votes cast in the Lone Star State back in 2016.  The Democrats are doing everything possible to flip Texas from RED to BLUE using any means necessary.  Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants the U.S. Treasury secretary’s gig when “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins on November 3, while crackpot Senator Bernie Sanders wants to be the Labor secretary.  Failed loser Beto O’Rourke wants to be the ‘gun-grabber czar’ while Congresswoman Sandy Cortez wants to be the head of the Climate Change Bureau so she can take away the rights of the American people.   Speaking of the upper crust, Lori Loughlin, best-known for the old show, “Full House,” reported to a federal prison near Dublin, California, to begin her two-month stint for having bribed their daughters into USC.  When she’s out, hubby Mosimmo Giannulli, will report to the federal pen to do his five-month stint.  Poor bastard paid half-a-million bucks to get their daughters into the University of Southern California by having them pose as FAKE ROWERS.  Wow.
  70. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions #1603 with a jackpot of $118 million on the line: 14, 19, 34, 39, 59 and Mega 11.  The highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $16,660.
  71. 2020 Friday I: As Election Day draws near, we know the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are working hard to steal this election from the American people.  We hope you will stick around for updates on the Chi-Vi as well as whatever we uncover the Beijing bullies and their running dog patsies are up to…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra released their next studio album, “Alone in the Universe” on November 13, 2015.  Jeff Lynne performs most of the instruments with a few extra musicians adding additional flavor.  Critics reviewed the album favorably and fans were excited that the group was back in some semblance of being.  Say what you will, bands that began back in the late 1960s or early 1970s and then broke up and reformed are never as exciting as they were in their heyday but hey!  Lifelong fans tend to revel when ANY newer music appears which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whomever else you do for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this one simple maxim: anything from the bands of the 1960s or 1970s beats any of this anemic he-she crap modern-day bands foist on us.  Period.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY OCTOBER 30, 2020

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

Friday, October 30, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.  Sadly, we failed to do the music of the Great Society at the time or that of various members’ solo catalogs.  We hope to rectify that mistake one day so please stay tuned.

[ii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[viii] Many people speculate as to WHY Comey would reopen the investigation into Hillary’s missing emails so close to the Election?  Was it because he was demonstrating HIS POWER to Hillary that IF she failed to keep him on at best or worst for the American people, make him the next Attorney-General of the United States that he could destroy her?  Yes, the FBI ‘discovered Anthony Weiner’s laptop with information on it besides the people with whom he was sexting but why would a Deep State maggot like Comey do this to a person whom he wanted to serve?  We await answers…
