Gavin Newsom?  Colleagues up in Washington state report 15,462 confirmed cases what with confirmed deaths at 841 and- like California- NO recovery confirmation numbers.  Gov. Jay Inslee, what are YOU hiding (asks Chef Vladimir?)

  44. 2015 Monday: Much to the horror of liberals everywhere (and to the delight of everyone else) candidate Donald J.

  49. 2020 Monday: IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden actually becomes the next president, he is doing Californians a big favor by announcing our reprobate state Attorney-General Xavier Becerra as his secretary of HUD. Likewise, IF he becomes president, we will also get rid of Kamala Harris (look for Governor Gavin Newsom to appoint himself NEXT U.S. senator from the Golden State).  Elsewhere, U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces he most likely will resign his office early.  Meanwhile, 64 GOP lawmakers urge the U.S. Congress to block certification of the 2020 Presidential Election due to the massive amount of voter fraud that has occurred in the key battleground states.   Finally, with Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court, the number of pro-gun lawsuits seeking redress at SCOTUS have spiked.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The J. Geils Band is one of those unique American groups that were an amazing live act but which required time to build up to selling loads of albums.  With remarkable success would come dissension in the ranks but that was for another decade or so away.  Former in Massachusetts in the mid-1960s around the namesake of the band, John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones), the band released its first album, “The J. Geils Band” on November 16, 1970.  The band was a smoking blues-rock band, sort of an American ‘Rolling Stones’ but unique in their own way.  This album opened the door to a national audience and signaled good things to come.  We hope you will investigate this album to your own delight- you will be glad you did.

  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.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 18, 2020

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

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 >
