Trump and the GOP.

Trump’s words.  We learn of a program called Centra that allows the ‘social media twerps’ to follow their users across a variety of social media spectrums compiling dossiers on every user of their sites.  Not only is this dangerous, it is outright EVIL as none of these little closet fairies has any right to censor anyone, much less track anyone across the World Wide Web.  Senators, do your duty and break them up as well as Google and deport Sundar Pichai and his family back to Bangladesh or wherever the hell the scumbag emanates.
  57. 2020 Tuesday B: Tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1608 with a $135 million jackpot on the line- here are the numbers- 08, 13, 35, 46, 68, and Mega 16.  The highest winners were two people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,515 apiece.

  59. 2020 Tuesday D: 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: 1,051,642 confirmed cases, 18,317 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,711 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and today, NO mention of confirmed recoveries- that’s unusual.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 139,275 confirmed cases, 2,664 confirmed deaths, but like California, the thuggish 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, Louisiana: 207,685 confirmed number of cases, 6,156  confirmed number of deaths, but no mention of confirmed number of recoveries- that’s Governor John Bel Edwards for you.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 325,537 confirmed cases, 2,736 confirmed deaths, and 313,643 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Tuesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,783.35, DOWN 167.09 points (-0.56%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,899.34, DOWN 24.79 points (-0.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,609.53, DOWN 17.38 points (-0.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,880.40 per troy oz., -4.70 (-0.25%) while the price of SILVER is $24.56 per troy ounce, -0.091 (-0.37%).  The price of PLATINUM is $933.40 per troy oz, -3.70 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, +0.007 (+0.22%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,326.50 per troy oz., -18.60 (-0.79%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.22 per barrel, -0.21 (-0.51%).  Today, COCOA is $2,435.00 per metric ton, -0.82 (-3.26).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.56 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Seeing as how Foreigner was going through some ‘unprofitable changes,’ the band’s record company stepped in and released the group’s first live album, “Classic Hits Live/Best of Live” on November 16, 1993.  The album contained classic live tunes culled from performances between 1977 and 1985 so you have the following lineup of personnel: Mick Jones (guitars), Ian McDonald (guitars, vocals, keyboards, and horns), Al Greenwood (keyboards), Ed Gagliardi (bass, vocals), Dennis Elliot (drums), Lou Gramm (vocals), and Rick Wills (bass).  Every song is smoking hot so for fans of the band, this was a godsend whereas for others, they gave it passing note in the same way they did the Bad Company of the 1990s.  We like it so you understand what that means, seek it out, give it a listen, and determine if it’s right for you- you won’t find much better.

  51. 2017 Thursday: Reports for new home construction in the United States for the preceding month have rebounded quickly from the end of the Obama administration.  People are positive that their lives are going to improve under President Trump and the economy is picking up.   Meanwhile, Minnesota Senator Al Franken cannot catch a break as another woman accuses him of groping and forced kissing.  Poor bastard.  That’s a Democrat for you.

  53. 2019 Saturday: CNN projects on Saturday night that Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards held onto his seat.  The Democrat at press time is said to have edged the Republican challenger, businessman Eddie Rispone.  Democrats go wild in the streets!  Meanwhile, today marks the 500th founding of the city of Havana, Cuba.
  54. 2020 Monday:  Following on last week’s announcement by Pfizer of a COVID-19 vaccine, 90-percent effective, Moderna announces that its own vaccine- one that is 94.5-percent effective- is ready to go.  New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo threatens the Trump administration with lawsuits if the vaccine does not come to his state and soon.  After receiving all manner of help from the Trump administration earlier in the year, the dingbat governor turned around and attacked President Donald J. Trump on his alleged ‘lackluster response’ to the Chinese Virus.  This guy is such a POS, he should be on trial charged with thousands of counts of needless deaths because had he not sent Wuhan Flu-infected spreaders into rest homes across the state, thousands of people would still be alive today.  Meanwhile, politics continues on and on as lowlife scumbags such as Dr. Tony Fauci, Governor Mike DeWine, and former Governor Asa Hutchinson all attack Trump for not bringing in the Biden transition team.  Wow.
  55. 2020 Monday A: The more the United States learns about the corrupt Dominion Voting System out of our northern neighbor Canada, the angrier millions of Americans are becoming.  The sad fact that 33 states use this easily hacked system with its servers in Germany and vote tabulators in Barcelona, Spain, the more we learn that Canada is NOT our friend.  IF President Trump survives what the little cross-dresser Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his father one of the Rolling Stones as his mother was a groupie in 1978-1979, we must cut the Canadians out of any cooperation between our country and theirs.  Some of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe that what Canada has done to us- interfering in our politics- is an act of war and that we should nuke the living hell out of them.  – Chef Olaf Bologolo.
  56. 2020 Monday B: SEC Chairman Jay Clayton is stepping down early.  Meanwhile, although Fake News Media continues reporting that the Trump campaign has given up fighting for the Keystone State, Newsmax contributor and presidential strategist Dick Morris says this is ‘bogus,’ that the campaign is fighting in Pennsylvania to stop the theft of the election.  Elsewhere, ‘president-elect’ “Pro-China Joe” Biden calls on Congress to pass a sweeping new Chi-Vi relief package and attempts to take credit for the new COVID-19 vaccines developed by both Pfizer and Moderna.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump hints at support for a primary challenger to Ohio’s Republican Governor Mike DeWine, a POS RINO who has done whatever he can to thwart the 45th president.  The man is no better than John Kasich was, a piece of pond scum who would cut his own party’s throat if it meant liberal news media would love him.  Other problems exist in Georgia, a state controlled by Republicans but seemingly doing the dirty work of the Democrats.
  57. 2020 Monday C: The Chi-Coms and 14 other nations signed a massive trade deal on Sunday that will bring more than 2.5 billion people into a trade pact headed by Beijing, one that excludes the United States.  Member countries include: People’s Republic of China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.  Like the Chi-Coms’ Belt and Road Initiative, this is a way by which, the corrupt communist regional power is attempting to become a global superpower, tying nations together- including allies of the U.S.- into a tight web of interconnectivity and one with which, they hope they can destroy the United States, especially IF President Trump is able to pull a victory out of the fire.
  58. 2020 Monday D: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 54,678,159 confirmed cases, +493,801, 1,321,403, confirmed deaths, +6,499, and 35,098,656 confirmed recoveries, +267,664.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 11,200,491 confirmed cases, up 150,340 from yesterday’s reporting, 250,003 confirmed deaths, UP 672, and 5,957,635 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,366.  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: 1,040,733 confirmed cases, 18,277 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,619 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and last week at this time 12,083 confirmed recoveries but no updates today.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 135,433 confirmed cases, 2,638 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Alabama, currently, they have 219,232 confirmed cases, 3,249 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 324,755 confirmed cases, 2,735 confirmed deaths, and 313,643 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Brazil: they have 5,876,740 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 166,067 confirmed deaths and 5,322,466 confirmed recoveries.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

And so it occurred- Lou Gramm abandoned Foreigner to its fate, partly to save himself and partly to achieve success on his own.  Foreigner, which now consisted of Johnny Edwards (vocals), Mick Jones (guitars), Dennis Elliott (drums/percussion), and Rick Wills (bassist)- along with a legion of backing vocalists and keyboardists entered the studio and recorded their next effort, “Unusual Heat.” Released on June 14, 1991, it tanked..  Following this album being a commercial failure- hitting #117 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, there would be wholesale changes in lineup.  Ah, well, every band that has fiery chemistry- which makes them a top live act (or made) eventually combusts at the seams and so Foreigner would.  Still, completists and archivists like us want to own every scrap, every shred of music produced wants to own it and so we do and hope you will, too.  There are always incredible moments on any album and this one is no different so seek it out, give it a listen, and add it to your collection- you can thank us later.

TODAY IN HISTORY, MONDAY NOVEMBER 16, 2020

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

Monday, November 16, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] When we promoted the music of Fleetwood Mac, we should have shared the music of Chicken Shack in the same way we should have tied the music of UFO in with it seeing as how musicians from Chicken Shack joined both bands at later times.

[ii] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011.  Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.

[iii] We look forward to doing the music of UFO as well as of the Michael Schenker Group within the next year or two.  We hope you will join us when we do.

[iv] It’s a Beautiful Day is one of the all-time great San Francisco rock bands.  We began promoting them on Thursday, August 25, 2011 through Monday, August 29, 2011 and again on Tuesday, February 04, 2014 through Wednesday, February 05, 2014.  We encourage everyone to check their discography out and consider adding them to your collection.

[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.

[vi] This is a great song from the “Walls and Bridges” album that everyone must seek out and consider adding to their collection.  We promoted this album on Sunday, 12-25-2016.  We hope you will seek it out. 

[vii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point.

[viii] We began promoting this famed San Francisco rock band on Friday, March 25, 2011 through Monday, April 04, 2011 and again from Tuesday, August 20, 2013 through Monday, September 02, 2013.  Please, seek the albums out featured in the blog posts on those dates. 

[ix] Both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama waged war on U.S. fighting men and women which was not right.  We must return to fighting wars the way we did from Vietnam backward to the Spanish-American War.  We cannot prosecute soldiers for fighting a soulless enemy, one that we definitely need to kill using any means imaginable.

[x] Like many of the Democrats, Charlie Rangel is a perfect example of the corruption that permeates that party.  Everyone knew for decades that Congressman Rangel was a crooked POS yet it took them far too long to get his ass out of Congress.

[xi] This guy is one of the big purveyors of fake news and should be doing tough time in prison.
