  59. 2020 Wednesday: Although most major news outlets, Democrats, and anti-Trump RINOs have called the election for “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, Las Vegas bookmakers have not.  Meanwhile, votes for President Donald J. Trump continue turning up in various battleground states but in Michigan, a setback occurred when county election workers first refused to certify the elections in the Detroit area until they came under verbal assault and threatened physical assault.  They quickly certified the results and sent them up the ladder to the Michigan secretary of state.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the House GOP leaders vote to retain the same officers in the lower chamber of Congress while initial reports say the Dems might keep current House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi in her position.  How this can be true after they lost beaucoup seats after being promised of the MASSIVE VICTORIES to come is beyond us.  However, what is also beyond us is the fact that the GOP knocked out one Democrat House incumbent after another and we are still to believe that President Donald J. Trump lost his re-election bid?  Say what?
  60. 2020 Wednesday A: The Department of Justice charges seven people for committing fraud on the U.S. government by scamming the Paycheck Protection Program out of $16 million.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump fires Christopher Krebs, a Trump appointee to head the elections security division at the Department of Homeland Security after he proclaimed, ‘NO election shenanigans have occurred in the 2020 Presidential Election.’  Elsewhere, CNN’s famed foreign correspondent, the highly biased Christine Amanpour expressed regret for having used the name of “President Donald J. Trump and his followers” in connection with Kristallnacht.”  That’s nice, Ms. Amanpour, you anti-Semitic bigot.   Finally, we learn that the Durham Probe into the Democrats, the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Obama administration continues.  IF Trump should lose, so what?  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he is doing his best to withdraw 25,000 American troops from the Middle East before the year’s end.
  61. 2020 Wednesday B: Pfizer- not to be outdone by Moderna- says their COVID-19 vaccine is 95-percent or more effective.  However, given billions of dollars by the U.S. government to develop the vaccine in record time to provide 100 million doses of the vaccine by year’s end has now reneged and says it will only provide 20 million doses while sending the other 80 million doses abroad.  Good Lord!  WTF is wrong with American companies?  Oh, wait, Pfizer donated BIG BUCKS to the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  Go figure.
  62. 2020 Wednesday C: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 56,024,130 confirmed cases, UP by 690,756 cases, 1,345,639 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,249 deaths, and 35,969,240 confirmed recoveries, UP by 356,120 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 11,546,233 confirmed cases, UP by 177,590 new cases, 253,423 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,100 new deaths, and 6,095,958 confirmed recoveries, UP by 58,978 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 326,200 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and 315,314 confirmed recoveries. 
  63. 2020 Wednesday 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: 1,058,125 confirmed cases, 18,364 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,755 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 140,942 confirmed cases, 2,686 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced 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, Virginia, the home of Democratic corruption, elected officials who dress in blackface or who have committed sexual assaults: 208,833 confirmed number of cases, 3,860 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam for concealing the number of recoveries- yet another left-wing liberal POS politician.
  64. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,438.42, DOWN 344.93 points (-1.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,801.60, DOWN 97.74 points (-0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,567.79, DOWN 41.74 points (-1.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,871.00 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $24.40 per troy ounce, -0.53 (-0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.10 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,354.00 per troy oz, +27.50 (+1.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.62 per barrel, -0.20 (-0.48%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.
  65. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto #3509 with a jackpot of $7 million at stake: 01, 02, 16, 27, 32, and Mega 18.  One person had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $27,123.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #795 with a jackpot of $179 million: 04, 05, 17, 43, 52, and Powerball 05.  The highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,296. 
  66. 2020 Wednesday G: Running unopposed for another term as speaker of the House, Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins to the shock of many.  It demonstrates how chicken-s**t the Democrats in the House are that they are afraid of challenging the 80-year-old, mostly senile, incoherent speaker seeing as how she has produced the slimmest ‘majority’ in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives losing 12 incumbent seats and gaining NONE.  Democrats, boot her out NOW!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After floundering about for a while, Lou Gramm discovered- like Mick Jones- that catching lightning twice can be a challenging thing.  Both of them needed one another but after wasting a good amount of time on solo projects and reincarnations of Foreigner, they reunited and released “Mr. Moonlight” on October 31, 1994.  Joining them were Bruce Turgon (bass/backing vocals), Jeff Jacobs (keyboards/backing vocals), Mark Schulman (drums/backing vocals), and a load of other musicians to round out the sound.  Sadly, lightning did not hit them twice and on the charts, this one came in at #136, not enough to bring in much money to keep the band living in the style they once were used to living.  Still, like anything else, it has its moments and one can discern flashes of the OLD GREATNESS so we encourage everyone to investigate for themselves.  You will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of Blue Cheer- one of the wildest acid rock bands of all time, beginning on Sunday, 25-November-2012 through Wednesday, 12-December-2012.  We hope you seek this famed band out and add them to your collection; you will be glad you did.

[ii] We began promoting the music of this famed psychedelic band- Strawberry Alarm Clock- beginning on Tuesday, 03-April-2012 through Saturday, 08-April-2012. Please check them out- you will enjoy them.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[v] It does not require a genius to understand that every Republican president since Ronald Reagan has been the target of outraged Democrats who seek to overthrow the legal system and impeach every GOP president.  Time for this bulls**t to end.

[vi] These illegal protests in Hong Kong continue into 2019 and it is clear that they are out of control and need to be shut down.  Hong Kong is Chinese territory and it should be clear to all that they have been quite patient in their response while awaiting the perpetrators to meet them halfway.

[vii] 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.

[viii] That’s right- we said it: the Chi-Coms provide many of the engineers involved in the project as well as lesser workers.  This is a criminal scam and everyone knows it. 

[ix] Mayor Pete is doing great with the Bath House vote but cannot attract black voters to his cause (and why would they join him?- editor’s note 2019).  We lovingly refer to Mayor Pete as “Little Queenie.”

[x] Chris Matthews claims it was the sound of a coffee mug being scraped across the desk.  You be the judge: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKLn-qjlM_Y >

TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 07, 2020

FFF. 2016 Friday: In what the Washington Post believes is the silver bullet that is going to destroy the presidential campaign of businessman Donald J. Trump, they release a video in which, the New Yorker brags to Billy Bush on a segment of Entertainment Tonight in which, he explains that being ‘rich allows him to get away with groping and kissing women against their will.’ The comments were made about contestants in beauty contests in which, the real estate developer had part ownership. It did NOT destroy him.

  58. 2016 Friday: In what the Washington Post believes is the silver bullet that is going to destroy the presidential campaign of businessman Donald J. Trump, they release a video in which, the New Yorker brags to Billy Bush on a segment of Entertainment Tonight in which, he explains that being ‘rich allows him to get away with groping and kissing women against their will.’  The comments were made about contestants in beauty contests in which, the real estate developer had part ownership.  It did NOT destroy him. 
  59. 2017 Saturday: Country music star Jason Aldean, who had been on stage at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas less than a week earlier when a gunman opened fire on the crowd from high up in a hotel room, paid tribute and to late Tom Petty by opening “Saturday Night Live” with Petty’s song, “I Won’t Back Down.”
  60. 2018 Sunday: Communist China announces that it has Meng Hongwei, the chief of Interpol, in its custody after the global law enforcement officer had gone ‘missing.’  Hongwei subsequently resigns from the organization.  After holding him on charges of corruption ranging from 2005 to 2017, the Chi-Coms send him to jail for 13.5 years following his conviction on January 21, 2020. 
  61. 2019 Monday: Democrat and GOP lawmakers blast President Donald J. Trump over his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria which will leave allied Kurdish forces vulnerable to angry Turks across the border who want to go in there, establish a ‘safe zone’ and kill as many Kurds as they possibly can.  Critics of the president call what he’s doing goes against the grain in U.S.-allied relations and threaten terrible things are going to occur if someone does not stop him.  Meanwhile, Democrats in the House continue building up to their impeachment inquiry.  The 45th president is taking it from all sides.
  62. 2020 Wednesday: Reports continue coming in from around the nation of people receiving multiple mail-in ballots even though they live alone or family members are dead.  It is clear that the Democrats are doing everything imaginable and somethings that aren’t to steal the elections in November.  When the GOP wins back the House, keeps the Senate, and Donald Trump has another four years (should have another eight due to the Obama-led coup against him), and the GOP wins more state houses, we will need a new Constitutional amendment in which, the federal government has oversight over the elections process, can demand voter ID, NO early voting, voting in person, and sentences of up to 20 years in prison for any voter fraud with NO early release, even for pandemics such as the Chi-Vi.  We cannot have Democrat-held states trying to subvert the elections process because once no one has faith in election outcomes, we will be going down a dark path from which there is no return.  Speaking of “Chi-Com Joe” Biden, we learn at his last town hall meeting with Lester Holt as the moderator, the ‘undecided voters’ were hand-picked Biden SUPPORTERS.  What an embarrassment.
  63. 2020 Wednesday A: The New York Times endorses “Pro-China Joe” Biden; what took them so long?  President Donald J. Trump calls for ‘stand-alone’ stimulus checks of $1,200 per citizen since the Democrat-held House of Representatives continues to defy both the president and the GOP-held Senate with their insane demands.  Meanwhile, a Washington Examiner/YouGov poll says a ‘majority of the American people do NOT want a liberal Supreme Court.   Moving on, down in Texas, a grand jury indicts Netflix on its film, “Cuties,” that promotes and praises pedophilia and the victimization of young prepubescent girls as some sort of ‘artistic film.’  Good.  Sue them, shut them down or break them up.   Finally, as Cat 4 storm Delta continues to storm across the western Caribbean region, 57 oil rigs in the gulf begin evacuating all personnel.
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their tools like “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, Beijing WARNED the U.S. NOT to reestablish diplomatic relations with Taiwan.  Here is what we say: “F**K THEM!”  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 35,998,606 confirmed cases, UP by 344,335 cases, 1,052,736 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,927 deaths, and 25,055,487 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,491 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,638,376 confirmed cases, UP by 84,984 new cases, 214,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,440 new deaths, and 4,958,537 confirmed recoveries, UP by 52,905 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 281,481 confirmed cases, 1,824 confirmed deaths, and 216,613 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: 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: 841,583 confirmed cases, 16,301 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,090 confirmed cases, 159 confirmed deaths, and 10,470 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 94,932 confirmed cases, 2,262 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more soon-to-be-state, if the Democrats have their way: District of Columbia: 15,697 confirmed number of cases, 632 confirmed deaths, and 12,350 confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Mayor Muriel Bowser for sharing the number of recoveries.
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,303.46, UP a whopping 530.70 points (+1.91%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,364.60, UP 210.00 points (+1.91%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,419.45, UP 58.50 points (+1.74%).  The price of GOLD is $1,890.40 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $23.90 per troy ounce, +0.004 (+0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $868.90 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $3.03 per pound, -0.0055 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,382.10 per troy oz, -9.10 (-0.38%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.06 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.28%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 22.46.
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: As everyone knows, we spend hours per day tabulating the collusion between the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party.  Today, ancient actress best known for her role in “Barbarella,” and for going to North Vietnam during the height of the war in Vietnam, speaking to U.S. POWS and then relaying messages they told her back to their captors- Jane Fonda- says that ‘COVID-19 is God’s (to her, Satan’s) gift to the Democratic Party.  Wow.  Jane, time for you to go swallow a bottle of arsenic and join your master in HELL.  Worthless c**t.
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: The vice-presidential debate occurred tonight with the sitting VP Mike Pence going up against challenger, Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California.  Unlike last week’s battle between President Donald J. Trump and not one but TWO adversaries- ‘moderator’ Chris Wallace of the Fox News Channel, one of the reasons why we no longer watch FNC, and former Vice President Joseph R. “Pro-China” Biden, this one was much more cordial and politie.  We received different vibes tonight- Mike Pence was solid and unflappable and Senator Harris managed to keep the bitchiness factor under control.   It seemed as though moderator Susan Page allowed the challenger to go on while she tried to restrict the vice president from answering questions put to him in full.  Anyhow, the debate was far better than the first presidential debate last week although neither side would ever answer the questions asked directly but generally chose to answer the previous one or the one before.  I will say it is shameful to ask any president if ‘he will leave the White House if he loses the election.’  Of course they will but it is important that our elections are fair and when the Democrats have no problem showing they are doing everything to STEAL it, who would commit to such an answer?  The election must be fair.
