ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On January 22, 1976, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- released their first official ‘best of package,’ “M.U.- the Best of Jethro Tull” which featured slim pickings of 11 tracks culled from their earlier albums and again from the two albums following “Thick as a Brick” and “A Passion Play.”  If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “Living in the Past” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL

  53. 2017 Thursday: Chris Cornell, rhythm guitarist/lead vocalist with two Grunge Era bands, Soundgarden[iv] and Audioslave, committed suicide by hanging in his Detroit hotel room on this date.  Cornell was 52 years old.  Elsewhere, an incident occurs in the West Bank town of Hawera as a mob of Palestinian thugs attack a car being driven by an Israeli with rocks and other projectiles.  They try to drag the guy out of his car so they can lynch him; however, he draws his firearm and shoots one of the punks dead; the rest flee.

  55. 2019 Saturday: In an electoral surprise Downunder, Scott Morrison’s coalition government wins big in the Australian election.   Elsewhere, loser Congressman Justin Amash, RINO-MI 3rd congressional district, becomes the first ‘Republican’ to announce he is in favor of impeaching President Donald J.

  56. 2020 Monday: President Donald J. Trump ‘shocks’ his enemies, uh, the Fake News Media, when he informs them he has been taking hydroxychloroquine along with zinc- and possibly another medication- as a prophylactic against communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ COVID-19.  Shortly afterwards, Fox News Channel host, Neil Cavuto goes berserk on his program, yelling, “IT CAN KILL YOU!” He then tries to coerce open-minded guests into condemning Trump, too, but they won’t which says much about them.  Here are our stats for the day regarding the Wuhan Virus: Global Cases: 4,801,282 number of confirmed cases, 318,464 number of confirmed deaths, but 1,786,829 number of confirmed recoveries which is excellent.   In the United States, we have 1,537,830 number of confirmed cases, 90,964 number of confirmed deaths, but 288,842 number of confirmed recoveries.

Gavin Newsom playing politics- the slime.  Next, Hawaii has 640 number of confirmed cases, 17 number of confirmed deaths, but 573 number of confirmed recoveries which is amazing- thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, we have 18,611 number of confirmed cases, 1,002 number of confirmed deaths, but 0 number of confirmed recoveries.  Some states are not even providing the world with daily updates which is incorrect, too.  This seems to be the way things are going to be.  Communist China lies, Blue State governors and mayors lie, which should inform everyone of sound mind and healthy body that the Wuhan Flu is being used for POLITICAL PURPOSES.  Remain alert, especially for legitimate figures out of Beijing because what they report is simply not the truth.
  58. 2021 Tuesday:  You know the drill…

4. 2021 Tuesday P: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, aka COVID-19, the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans is opposed to the Johnson & Johnson Wuhan Virus vaccine because it uses cells derived from abortions in both its manufacture and its testing. IF the Catholic Church is against the Johnson & Johnson vaccine then we are against it, too. Speaking of the J & J vaccine, with only 3.7 million does offered, Merck is stepping in to convert two of its U.S. manufacturing facilities to begin mass-producing and packaging of the vaccine. As we said, we can wait.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 616

61. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 02, 2021 UPDATE B:

DAY FORTY-TWO OF THE JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

Texas Independence Day (Texas); Read Across America Day; Town Meeting Day (Vermont)

“The Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans says, “HELL NO” to the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine because of the use of cells from aborted children- we ain’t gonna take it!”

FBI Director Chris Wray, COVID-19, Coronavirus, Chi-Vi- the, Chinese Virus, Chinese Virus Crisis, Chinese Virus Anal Swabs, Wuhan Flu, Wuhan Virus Crisis, Wuhan Virus, Chinese Bat Bug, Xi Jinping Bat Flu, NASDAQ, DOW Jones Industrial Average, S & P 500, Commodities, Johnson & Johnson Vaccine and the Catholic Church, Governor Gregg Abbott, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the “Love Gov,” Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Mask Mandate, Officer Brian Sicknick, Pavlik Morozov, Leftists and their need for Martyrs:

  1. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 114,706,724 confirmed cases, +356,113, 2,544,852, confirmed deaths, +7,987, and 64,781,391 confirmed recoveries, +250,043.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,998,700 confirmed cases, up 62,539 from yesterday’s reporting, 521,441 confirmed deaths, UP 1,706, and 16,992,502 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 191,256 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!
  2. 2021 Tuesday N: 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: 3,573,588 confirmed cases, 52,521 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii has not updated their stats in nearly a week.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 343,746 confirmed cases, 5,038 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Kansas: currently, they have 397,436 confirmed cases, 4,743 confirmed deaths, and 312,758 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 779,958 confirmed cases, 5,760 confirmed deaths, and 735,850 confirmed recoveries.
  3. 2021 Tuesday O: In one of the greatest pieces of news we have had in a long time, Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas says the Lone Star State will be open for business in one week.  ALL businesses, no matter who or what they are, may reopen and even better, the mask mandate is NO more.  Of course, liberals are wetting their panties but it is what it is, America is coming back.  As soon as we evict losers like Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Lov Gov, of New York, and Frankenstein-headed Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan (all she is missing are the bolts on her neck), the country can reopen wide and we can move beyond the Chinese Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, American diplomats going to communist China on behalf of the Biden administration are being forced to undergo the fearsome Chi-Com COVID-19 anal swab.  Tell them to go f**k themselves.
  4. 2021 Tuesday P: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, aka COVID-19, the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans is opposed to the Johnson & Johnson Wuhan Virus vaccine because  it uses cells derived from abortions in both its manufacture and its testing.  IF the Catholic Church is against the Johnson & Johnson vaccine then we are against it, too.  Speaking of the J & J vaccine, with only 3.7 million does offered, Merck is stepping in to convert two of its U.S. manufacturing facilities to begin mass-producing and packaging of the vaccine.  As we said, we can wait. 
  5. 2021 Tuesday Q:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,391.52, DOWN 143.99 points (-0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,358.79, DOWN 230.04 points (-1.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,870.29, DOWN 31.53 points (-0.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.80 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,202.20 per troy oz, -12.20 (-1.0\0%) while the price of COPPER is $4.19 per pound, -0.03 (-0.78%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,368.60 per troy oz, +19.60 (+0.83%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.12%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.62.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.85. 
  6. 2021 Tuesday R: The House Democrats continue slamming one bill after another.  Today, they introduced a wide-ranging (and unbelievably expensive, we suspect) climate bill which means MORE slush fund cash for Democrats to stick their hands in.   In other news, FBI Director Christopher Wray won’t release the cause of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  Even the family does not know the cause of their husband’s and father’s death.  Many believe he suffered a stroke on January 6, 2021 when he was blasted in the face with bear repellant.  The left wants everyone to believe that Officer Sicknick had his head stoved in with a fire extinguisher but no evidence of that occurrence exists.  Sadly, he was quickly cremated and his autopsy records sealed.  Left-wing governments and Islamic extremists ALWAYS require martyrs.[i]   In other interesting news, far-left hatemonger Neera Tanden is OUT as the next White House Office of Management and Budget boss.  Her past hateful speech in social media came back to bite her on her skinny ass.  Ouch!   Finally, Democrats want to end qualified immunity for police officers.
  7. 2021 Tuesday S: Senator Martin Heinrich, D-NM, and Congressman Darren Soto, D-FL, have authored a bill to fast track Puerto Rican statehood.  As we have said, just give statehood to Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Marianas, Johnston Atoll, Midway Island, and other specks in the Pacific Ocean we claim.  Imagine all the senators the Democrats could have.   Meanwhile, Senator Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says, he has the votes to pass the Biden Porkulus $1.9 trillion COVID-19 Relief Bill but hey- still NO $2,000 checks per U.S. citizen. 
  8. 2021 Tuesday T: The National Security Commission says that if the United States does not immediately pick up the pace, the Chi-Coms are going to win the race for artificial intelligence and can then use it to subjugate the rest of the world.  We had better get our act in order.  Elsewhere, the Nigerian military frees 279 kidnapped schoolgirls, seized by Boko Haram from Jangebe Town.  There are questions as to whether the Nigerians paid a ransom for them or not.  Meanwhile, Boko Haram attacked a favorite target of theirs, the town of Dikwa where they have a military outpost and humanitarian aid.  Apparently the jihadists overran the town.  No word on casualties.  
  9. 2021 Tuesday U: In other Chris Wray news, the FBI director said that ‘several of the more than 300 people arrested for the Capitol Hill Riot of January 06, 2021 have ties to right-wing militias.’  He also said that since he became director in 2017, white extremism threats have more than tripled.  He also said there is NO evidence of fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.  In Texas, a judge was arrested along with some other scumbags for committing election fraud in that state. 
  10. 2021 Tuesday V: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1638 with a jackpot of $43 million on the line: 04, 08, 13, 34, 64, and Mega 18.  Out of 52,291 winning tickets, the highest were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $4,732 apiece.

291. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2020

W. 1942 Saturday: German soldiers continue grinding forward against the ever-diminishing Soviet defenders, their numbers being slashed by continuous aerial bombardment, infantry, and armor assaults, seeking to capture the entire waterfront of the city as it stretches north and south along the Volga River. The Russian forces in the city are determined to cling to their positions so that the counterattack- when it comes- will devastate the Axis forces besieging the city. Russian commanding General Vasily Ivanovich Chuikov moves to safer headquarters and it is important to note that sludge ice was beginning to flow down the Volga River from the north which would soon clog the river before turning it to solid ice.

Trump approves major disaster relief for California, after FEMA denied it, because, once again, much of the state is burning down.  Governor Gavin Newsom, Democrat, begged for the relief and in a phone call with the president, the president found a way to deliver him the much-needed aid.   When this current fire season ends, clear-cut the forests, and stop allowing fresh water to flow out to sea, you Democrat imbecile!
  58. 2020 Saturday A: Due to rising numbers of Chi-Vi stats across Europe, many European locales are reimposing draconian measures to thwart the Chi-Com gift to the world, the Kung Flu.  Elsewhere, the Azerbaijanis blast Armenia for having fired Soviet-era SCUD missiles into its second largest city, knocking down 20 residential buildings, killing 13, and wounding hundreds of others.  They call it a ‘war crime.’  Meanwhile, citizens of Thailand take to the streets of Bangkok, demanding former military general and current Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha resign.  The protesters are also unhappy with the king, someone whom if YOU are found guilty of criticizing can land you up to 15 years in prison.
  59. 2020 Saturday B: Following yesterday’s assassination of a Parisian schoolteacher for having said something negative towards the ‘prophet,’ ‘founding father of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, police identify the slain suspect as an 18-year-old Chechen student.  The scumbag sawed the head off the schoolteacher with a knife which led Parisian law enforcement to round up as many members of the family of this POS living on French soil.  France: YOU have a massive problem with all these Muslims living on your soil, round them up, strip them of citizenship, and deport them.
  60. 2020 Saturday  C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 39,502,909 confirmed cases, +376,697, 1,106,795, confirmed deaths, +5,698, and 27,147,928 confirmed recoveries, 191,015.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 8,194,266 confirmed cases, UP 84,455 from yesterday’s reporting, 222,404 confirmed deaths, UP 1,084, and 5,211,232 confirmed recoveries, UP 20,578.  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: 874,505 confirmed cases, 16,933 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,007 confirmed cases, 185 confirmed deaths, and 10,947 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 101,540 confirmed cases, 2,338 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: South Dakota- currently, they have 32,611 confirmed cases, 315 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Kristi Noem for behaving like your typical Democratic politician- thank you.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 302,770 confirmed cases, 2,190 confirmed deaths, and 265,445 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Saturday  D: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3500, the jackpot being $18 million, in California: 07, 19, 25, 29, 42, and Mega 01.  (The highest winners were two people who had five numbers for a prize of $16,992 apiece).  Here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #786 with the jackpot of $82 million: 06, 10, 31, 37, 44, and Power 23.  (Highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $213 apiece).

Gavin Newsom playing politics- the slime.  Next, Hawaii has 640 number of confirmed cases, 17 number of confirmed deaths, but 573 number of confirmed recoveries which is amazing- thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, we have 18,611 number of confirmed cases, 1,002 number of confirmed deaths, but 0 number of confirmed recoveries.  Some states are not even providing the world with daily updates which is incorrect, too.  This seems to be the way things are going to be.  Communist China lies, Blue State governors and mayors lie, which should inform everyone of sound mind and healthy body that the Wuhan Flu is being used for POLITICAL PURPOSES.  Remain alert, especially for legitimate figures out of Beijing because what they report is simply not the truth.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.2c Momentary Lapse #29 05-08-2020 (400)

 

Following the album, “The Final Cut” and the disbanding of Pink Floyd, David Gilmour recruited Nicky Mason and Rick Wright to do another ‘Pink Floyd album, this time as a trio but with other musicians assisting. The resulting effort, “A Momentary Lapse of Reason” came out on September 07, 1987 just as the MTV era was taking off and folks, this is an amazing album although Roger Waters sought to cause havoc when the band went on tour. Defeated legally from barring the band to use the ‘Pink Floyd’ name, the new Pink Floyd set out on a very profitable time in the history of the band. This album sold amazingly well, igniting a new wave of interest in the buying of albums, and attending concerts. We love this album and know that you will love it, too, so please rush out and pick it up- you will enjoy it for years, if not decades.
