  62. 2020 Friday A: 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: 366,164 confirmed cases, UP 18,530, 7,475 confirmed deaths, UP by 248, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,311 confirmed cases, 22 confirmed deaths, and 975 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 44,413 confirmed cases, 1,427 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed 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, the Empire State: 405,551 confirmed number of cases, 32,446 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the numbers you murdering f**k!  YOU sent Xi Jinping Bat Flu-infected patients into rest homes where people were the most vulnerable and KILLED THEM.  We hope that when the inquiry occurs next month, that you find yourself doing time in a federal prison.   
  63. 2020 Friday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,671.95, DOWN 62.76 points (-0.23%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,503.19, UP 29.36 points (+0.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,224.73, UP 9.16 points (+0.28%).  The price of GOLD is $1,812.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $19.74 per troy ounce, -0.019 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $851.40 per troy oz, +1.80 (+0.21) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, -0.0035 (-0.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.57 per barrel, -0.02 (-0.05%).
  64. 2020 Friday C: The federal government carried out its third execution of the week of an Iowa meth dealer, Dustin Honken, 52, a POS who murdered government informants and children back in 1993.  He had been on death row in Terre Haute, Indiana, since 2005, awaiting execution.  Execute these criminal scumbags.   
  65. 2020 Friday D: Congressman John Lewis died today, a victim of pancreatic carcinoma.  A famed warrior for civil rights, he served as Georgia’s 5th District congressman since entering the House of Representatives in 1987.   He was 80 when he passed.  God bless you, Congressman Lewis!
  66. 2021 Saturday: Let’s hope it’s a slow news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One of the best live acts of the 1970s, Wild Turkey should have had a far longer career than what they did but thankfully, their final performances were preserved for posterity.  “Live in Edinburgh” came out on May 27, 2001, and it featured some heavy-duty rock and roll tracks delivered by one of the greatest bass players of all time, the amazing Glenn Cornick.  The band featured aforementioned amazing musician (bass, guitars, keyboards, harmonicas), Gary Pickford-Hopkins (vocals), Bernie Marsden (guitars), Mick Dyche (guitars/vocals), Jeff Jones and Kevin Currie (drums), and Steve Gurl (keyboards).   If you want to hear some amazing music by a little-known band by anyone who isn’t a Baby Boomer, please seek this album out and give it a good listen- you will be glad you did.

  55. 2018 Monday:  The Deputy Director of the FBI- the corrupt and anti-Trumper Andrew McCabe resigns his post when in fact the 45th president fired his crooked ass.  Like his former boss, James Comey, he was in neck deep in the coup against President Trump and had to go.
  56. 2019 Tuesday: As things continue going south in Venezuela (no pun intended), the government of that authoritarian country seizes the bank accounts and properties of Juan Guaidó and prohibit him from leaving the country.  It’s tit for tat. Meanwhile, the U.S. hands over frozen Venezuelan assets to the true winner of election, Guaidó.  Meanwhile, in yet another dagger driven into President Trump by members of his administration, DNI Dan Coats contradicts his boss on North Korea, Iran, and ISIS.  ‘North Korea will never denuclearize,’ Iran is a fine country and ‘not working towards the bomb,’ and ISIS is ‘not on the run but still strong as ever.’  Wow.

  58. 2021 Friday: DAY TEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what’s going on today.  First of all, the Biden regime is deriding the 45th president’s COVID-19 relief plan while cannibalizing as much of it as it possibly can.  Good old ‘Plagiarist Joe.’  Next, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, slams House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s constant demonization of the Republican Party.  He warns her it must stop.  Good luck with that.  Senile old Nancy is not always cognizant of what she is doing.  Moving on, Representative Matt Gaetz urges House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, to hold a hearing on Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, as a leader in the House.  The woman has plummeted like a turd to the bottom of the pond once she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.  For some inexplicable reason, Newsmax reports that Congress’ approval rating has jumped 10 percent but from what?  Bottom-of-the-barrel numbers.
  59. 2021 Friday A: The United Kingdom causes rancor with the Chi-Coms when the Brits offer the citizens of Hong Kong a pathway to British citizenship.  Wah, wah, wah, Chi-Coms.  STFU.  Meanwhile, the FBI says the pipe bombs ‘discovered’ at the RNC and DNC on January 6, 2021, the day the Antifa-led mob stormed Capitol Hill and overran it and its law enforcement like pot heads rampaging through a Krispy-Kreme donut shop, were planted the previous night.  The timeline also shows that the Capitol Hill Riots with the Antifa and BLM False Flag operation was planned long in advance so President Trump bears NO responsibility for any of it.  Senator Dick Durbin- censure not looking so bad now is it?  POS.  Speaking of drugs, Joe Biden is ending the Trump era program to combat the opioid epidemic.  Guess old Joe wants the Chi-Coms to make money off their illicit drug trade once again.  Thanks, Joe.  And people wonder why we say, “HE’S NOT OUR PRESIDENT.”  Speaking of Joe, he’s now staffing a commission to review the U.S. Supreme Court which means he is looking into PACKING IT. 
  60. 2021 Friday B: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 101,981,446 confirmed cases, +610,190, 2,203,696, confirmed deaths, +16,037, and 56,302,010 confirmed recoveries (lower than reported last week), +377,525.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,156,392 confirmed cases, up 177,254 from yesterday’s reporting, 440,880 confirmed deaths, UP 4,271, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as the past five days or so.
  61. 2021 Friday C: 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: 3,272,349 confirmed cases, 39,578 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 407 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 312,042 confirmed cases, 4,328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Puerto Rico- currently, they have 126,156 confirmed cases, 1,801 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 633,991 confirmed cases, 4,700 confirmed deaths, and 558,249 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the China Virus, the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine is 66-percent effective.  They are seeking FDA approval for emergency use of their product.
  62. 2021 Friday D: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,378 cases, +52, 4,636 confirmed deaths, and 82,940 confirmed recoveries, +70.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Insect-eating scum. 
  63. 2021 Friday E:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,982.62, DOWN 620.74 points (-2.03%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,070.69, DOWN 266.46 points (-2.00%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,417.24, DOWN 73.14 points (-1.93%). We are beginning to think Joe Biden is the Antichrist.  The price of GOLD is $1,845.90 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $27.06 per troy ounce, +0.146 (+0.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,079.80 per troy oz, +0.60 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.44%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,208.40 per troy oz, -113.90 (-4.90%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.14 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000029 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.75 Russian rubles.   
  64. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1629: 04, 44, 58, 59, 70, and Mega 03.  With a pot of $25 million, out of 64,781 winning tickets, the highest winner 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $500 apiece. Meanwhile, Hilton Valentine- original guitarist of the British invasion band the Animals died at his home in Connecticut on this date from unspecified causes at age 77.  See you on the other side, Hilton!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO returned on February 14, 1983 with what would become their final album for a while as sadly, all good things must come to an end after ar more than two decades together.  “Making Contact” is a fine album and it featured a slimmed down lineup without bassist Pete Way- Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Paul Chapman (guitars), and Neil Carter (keyboards/rhythm guitar/saxophones).  Having become a commercial entity rather than the ground-breaking space rock band they were originally,  They hit the road in Europe and were not well received nor did a short UK tour put them back on the top.  Thus, they went into hiatus for a period but would return as all good things do.

Trump is expected to name former aide to Ronal Reagan Robert Lighthizer as head of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
  57. 2018 Tuesday: After North Korean thug dictator Kim Jong Un says the ‘nuclear button is always on my desk,’ President Trump says that ‘his button is much bigger.’  Meanwhile, Venezuela- an oil-rich nation- finds itself with NO gasoline.  Ah, the joys of Marxism…
  58. 2019 Wednesday: Loads of new House members are taking their oaths today, most of them Democrats as they won 40 seats on Election Day last November.  Losers such as Rashida Tlaib and fellow anti-Semite Ilhan Omar as well as the Baby Evita- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley- the four women who will form the (Marxist) Squad are taking their oaths and will become instant thorns in the side of drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Meanwhile, as the partial ‘government shutdown’ continues into its 13th day, the Dems plan to vote on a funding bill that won’t fund the southern border wall.  Way to go, Dems, you love them illegal aliens.  Elsewhere, as tensions continue to rise in the African nation of Mali, gunmen murder 37 citizens in the street.  Sounds like Islamists to us…
  59. 2020 Thursday: Since the Iranians are causing so much trouble in neighboring Iraq such as trying to storm the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, the U.S. whacks Iranian thug General Qassim Soleimani as he heads for a car at the Baghdad airport, having just landed to direct more terror attacks at U.S. targets.  Good, send this POS to hell.  Of course, Tehran goes apoplectic over this so-called ‘outrage.’  Meanwhile, newly released emails show that ‘President Donald J. Trump purposefully withheld military aid to the Ukraine over his demands for an accounting of the criminal activities the Biden Cartel Crime Family had been doing in that country.  Elsewhere, Democratic candidate seeking the 2020 presidential nomination for his party- Julian Castro, a small-time Texas mayor and former secretary of HUD- drops out of the running today.  Good.  He never had a chance.   
  60. 2021 Saturday: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 84,517,989 confirmed cases, +593,048, 1,834,586, confirmed deaths, +8,410, and 47,548,752 confirmed recoveries, +286,928.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,596,260 confirmed cases, up 217,572 from yesterday’s reporting, 353,309 confirmed deaths, UP 2,599, and 9,223,561 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,467.
  61. 2021 Saturday A: 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: 2,345,909 confirmed cases, 26,357 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,807 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,585 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Colorado: currently, they have 339,172 confirmed cases, 4,936 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 434,799 confirmed cases, 3,392 confirmed deaths, and 381,714 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Saturday B: The home of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell were both vandalized with the heads of pigs and painted hateful epithets.  One of the slogans painted on the home of the Senate majority leader was ‘where’s my money?’  Now that’s hilarious.  Good question, though- why is $762 billion going abroad and only $174 going to Americans?  This is bullshit and everyone knows it so folks, paint away, paint away and continue throwing those hog snouts on their front porches.
  63. 2021 Saturday C: In Texas, the state’s supreme court sides with the attorney-general of the state, Ken Paxton, in his battle to keep restaurants and other businesses open during the Chi-Com Virus Crisis.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is unhappy that the Department of Justice waved off the lawsuit brought by Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert to entice Vice President Mike Pence to overthrow the results of the fraudulent elections in six Democrat-controlled states.  We hope he will because if Democrats steal this election, they will steal every election.
  64. 2021 Saturday D: Chi-Coms in Beijing warn of ‘consequences’ over the New York Stock Exchange delisting some of their Chi-Com corporations and companies.  Screw them.  Meanwhile, a judge in the UK announces he will rule soon on the U.S. demand for the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.  Most are hoping he will receive a pardon for his offenses in the U.S. Elsewhere, we learn that U.S. airlines have lost around $35 billion in lost revenues thanks once again to the Chi-Com virus.  We hope to see the case the globe launches against the communist Chinese at the World Court over the destruction they’ve caused by letting this virus loose on the world.  Finally, a federal appeals court backs President Donald J. Trump’s order denying entry to illegal aliens who have no proof of healthcare coverage.
  65. 2021 Saturday E: President Donald Trump vetoes a driftnet ban off the course of California.  He also expresses that thanks to him, he was able to denude the Affordable Care Act- aka Obamacare- of the mandate that Americans hated.  Of course, should “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris become our next president and vice president, they are going to slap that sucker back on the ACA and full-time employment will return to 28 hours per week or less.  Something to think about.  Meanwhile, incoming Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammack, 3rd congressional district of Florida, says she plans to put an Israeli flag on her office door which just so happens to be next to the office of lunatic, pro-jihadi nut Rashida Tlaib.  Now that’s something we all want to see!
  66. 2021 Saturday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3522 with a jackpot of $8 million on the line: 11, 19, 35, 40, 46, and Mega 18.  The highest winner- out of 97,482 winning tickets- was one person who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $34,825.  The winning ticket was sold at Speedway in Wildomar, California, 92595.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #808 with a jackpot of $384 million up for grabs: 03, 04, 11, 41, 67, and Powerball 05.  The highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,047 apiece.
  67. 2021 Saturday G: Friends, stick around to discover whatever Beijing and their stooges in the Democratic Party are up today- we all know they’re up to no good so find out with us.  We thank you…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Sadly, with the growth of conglomerate mega-record companies as well as computers, digital music, and MP-3 players, music underwent a transition that made it difficult for older artists to get their music to their fans and to the public.  Peter Wolf released his next solo effort, “Sleepless,” on September 10, 2002, and folks, with a load of gifted musicians joining him, this is an amazing album.  You will find Mick Jagger and Keith Richards here as well as Magic Dick and loads of others.  We love this album and know that you will, too, so please seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be so glad you did- no doubts about what we are saying, period.

Trump.   Then, within two hours, the Democrats start talking about passing the USMCA, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.   
  66. 2020 Thursday: Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh mentioned on his show how he has heard people wondering if secession of the conservative states is a possibility.  Over the course of the next 24 hours, Fake News Media said he was ‘calling for secession.’  He clarified today that that was not what he said and anyone who is a regular listener of the show knows he never called for such an event.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says she has “No concerns over Congressman Eric Swalwell being compromised by a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang or Fang-Fang,” a woman with whom the dimwitted congressman is rumored to have had a multi-year affair.  The man MUST go.  Next, the U.S. Senate is unable to block the sale of F-35 jets to the United Arab Emirates, a sale pushed through by the Trump administration.   Regarding the U.S. military, the Pentagon says it will no longer provide support for CIA counterterrorism operations.   Finally, U.S. B-52 H bombers fly to the Middle East to deter Iranian hegemony and aggression in the region. 
  67. 2020 Thursday A: The World Food Program- an entity that says 270 million people across the globe face imminent starvation- receives the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize Award.  Meanwhile, Morocco becomes the fourth Arab country in as many months to normalize relations with Israel.  Congratulations.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Treasury sanctions Russia, Yemen, and Haiti for human rights abuses on Human Rights Day- where are the Chi-Coms?  They should be at the head of the list for human rights abuses…
  68. 2020 Thursday B: In the shock of shocks for the day, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, mass murderer of the aged, the vulnerable, and the derelict in his state through sending legions of Chi-Vi-infected patients into nursing homes, now says he has ‘no choice other than to raise taxes.’  People of New York throw this ignorant POS and his doppelganger- the mayor of New York City Bill “Commie” Di Blasio out NOW! 
  69. 2020 Thursday C: In the “Pro-China Joe” Biden administration that may never be, the Unseen Hand behind the so-called ‘president-elect’ continues selecting Obama administration leftovers and members of the “B-Team” to positions in the ‘next administration: Denis McDonough will head Veterans’ Affairs, Susan Rice- since she cannot win Cabinet confirmation in the current GOP-controlled Senate will head the Domestic Policy Advisory Council.  Tom Vilsack will head the Department of Agriculture as he did for eight years of the Obama-Biden administration.  Congresswoman Marcia Fudge- who once considered challenging “Mumbles” Pelosi for House Speaker- will become the secretary of Housing and Urban Development, continuing the war on America’s suburbs.  All in all, it appears to be a list of pro-communist China leftists.  You go, Joe!
  70. 2020 Thursday D: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tells Newsmax TV this could be our ‘last chance’ to overturn the fraudulent election results in key battleground states.  Additional states are joining the fight as they are the lawsuit against Facebook for being a monopoly.  Break the scumbags up and send Mark Zuckerberg to prison for doing the work of the Chi-Coms.   Elsewhere, Florida Attorney General Ashley Brooke Moody says the ‘Supreme Court should hear the lawsuit launched by AG Paxton in Texas.  Meanwhile, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says COVID-19 relief checks would do more for the American people than continued unemployment checks.  The Democrats won’t budge on any Chinese Virus relief for the American people unless it provides HELP to Blue States and/or Blue State mayors as well as keeps liability options open so anyone who gets the Wuhan Virus on the job or as a customer can sue the business to death.    The FDA says the COVID-19 vaccine is essential for achieving ‘herd immunity’ against the Kung Flu.
  71. 2020 Thursday E: Tonight’s Thursday Night NFL Game is (1) New England Patriots, 3 (6-7) @ Los Angeles Rams, 24 (9-4) 5:30 P.M.  Stick around for results.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following the success of “Live Full House,” the J. Geils Band went into the studio and created their first big seller, “Bloodshot,” which came out on April 12, 1973.  The album featured the same lineup: John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones) and as you can tell from repeated plays of this album, the band is tight, smoking red-hot.  One tune, “Give it to Me,” helped push this album over the top which is as good today as it was more than four decades ago.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] According to author John Shaw of Time-Life Books, the 6th Panzer Division was spoiling for a fight having traveled all the way from Brittany to the Soviet Union.  Once in Russia, they faced constant partisan attacks and train derailments so that when they arrived on scene in southern Russia, they were willing to wipe the floor with the Soviets.

[ii] We are hoping to begin doing the music of the Move, the Electric Light Orchestra, and Roy Wood’s Wizzard sometime in 2020, possibly 2021.  We hope you will remain vigilant so you won’t miss them.  We will keep everyone posted.

[iii] Apparently for Albania of the time, the Soviet Union was not ‘communist enough.’  They favored the style of communism prevalent at the time in Mao Zedong’s China.  Interesting to note.

[iv] At some as yet undetermined point, we are going to go on an all-out Motown and Soul blitz, probably sometime before 2030 so we hope you will keep posted.  Otis Redding is one of the all-time greats and had he not died before his time could have been one of the music world’s megastars. 

[v] 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.    The “Wings Over America” album appeared on Saturday, 07-January-2017.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We are hopeful we will present the music of the Band and of its individual members sometime in 2024-2025.  Great music by a superb band.

[vii] Not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of Bob Dylan but one day, we sure heck we do.  Stay tuned.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#ST0001.1e Moments #5 07-02-2020 (400)

 

The follow up to “Crisis?  What Crisis?” came out on April 10, 1977: “Even in the Quietest Moments.”  Once again, the lineup featured Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), Roger Hodgson (guitars, backing and lead vocals), John Anthony Helliwell (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Dougie Thompson (bass), and Bob Seibenberg (drums and percussion) and once again the critics were not kind.  You know our view on this troubling situation in the musical world is that critics are not creators, they serve as unworthy moaners about how this could be ‘better’ or that could be ‘better’ but compared to the music we have in 2020, everyone is still listening to and enjoying the music of 40 or more years ago so please, seek this album out and consider adding it to your collection; you will be glad you did.
