  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.

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

Wednesday, November 18, 2020:

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 >

304. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2020

BB. 1942 Friday: On the eighth day of the Battle of El Alamein in North Africa, fresh Australian troops assault the Afrika Korps defenses. On the Eastern Front, the bloodbath in Stalingrad continues. General Zhukov on the eastern side of the Volga River continues funneling just enough reinforcements to General Chuikov in the city to keep the Germans to continue committing more and more troops into the fray while ignoring their supply lines and their Axis allies thin lines north and south of the city. The Russians are waiting for a freeze that when it happens will enable the tanks to have mobility of movement when the counteroffensive begins.

  57. 2015 Friday: The Obama administration announces it will send U.S. ground troops to fight ISIS in Syria.  Had the administration kept troops in Iraq instead of pulling them out posthaste and leaving all our military equipment there, ISIS would indeed have been the “JV team” that Obama labeled it as.
  58. 2016 Sunday: FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey[viii] reopens the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s ‘missing emails’ approximately one week out from Election Day.  Everyone is curious as to why this corrupt POS would do such a thing, especially the Clinton campaign.   Elsewhere, Saudi-led coalition aircraft attack Houthi rebels in Yemen killing at least 60 of the scumbags.  Keep killing them.  Meanwhile, in Game 5 of the World Series, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians by a score of 3-2.     
  59. 2017 Monday: After former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Rick Gates surrender to the FBI, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, aka the Boy Scout, announces his first indictments in the Trump-Russia Collusion investigation.  (In 2020, following a failed impeachment, the world would learn that the entire thing was a sham and that the Democrats were running a coup).  Elsewhere, on Capitol Hill, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis tell lawmakers they believe the Trump administration has the right to wage war on ANYONE around the globe suspected of terrorism.  Sounds like these two goobers are seeking avenues by which, they can wage endless wars, something against which, President Trump fought.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump says he is looking at ways of ending ‘birthright citizenship’ in the U.S. where ANYONE born in the country- regardless of citizenship or immigration status (meaning ILLEGAL ALIENS) automatically become U.S. citizens.  Friends, this should have happened decades ago as we have a national industry by which illegals cross our borders and foal their calves.  This must stop NOW.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Across the state of California, massive wildfires continue burning down vast stretches of the state.  Flames are threatening the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library as fire crews struggle to contain them.  More than 30,000 people have had to flee their homes.  Liberals screech about “CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!  WE ONLY HAVE 2-3 YEARS BEFORE THE PLANET DIES.”  Yet, north of Washington state and south of California into Mexico, NO fires blaze away.  Conservatives say, “Let’s do proper forest management and water conservation.”  Plain and simple.  Elsewhere, in a decisive Game 7 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Houston, winning their first championship and also becoming the first team to win four road games.  They lost all three at home in Washington, D.C.   The Willie Mays Most Valuable Player Award goes to pitcher Stephen Strasburg for his two winning performances but especially his Game 6 performance pitching into the 8th inning.   Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, 50 youthful climate change activists (alarmists) stage a sit-in at House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s office.  Stop wasting your time, kids, the speaker cares nothing about you.

Trump.  Elsewhere, we learn that 25 legislators are pressuring Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pack the U.S. Supreme Court as soon as the Dems regain control of the U.S. Senate which they anticipate doing soon.  Moving on, Hostess Twinkie Don Lemon on CNN calls Trump supporters ‘drug addicts,’ that he has to cut many people lose and until they hit rock bottom and ask for help, he wants nothing to do with them.  Wow.  Business Insider reports that legions of journalists are donating to Democratic candidates, something media organizations used to discourage but nowadays, seemingly promote.
  63. 2020 Friday A: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says that Wall Street donations to “Pro-China Joe” Biden are ‘befuddling.’  Biden plans on taxing Wall Street banks out of existence with the appointment of Sen. Liz Warren, D-Massachusetts, to Treasury secretary.  That woman wants to dish out a whole lotta payback.  Elsewhere, in Minnesota, a federal appeals court upends the state’s plan on extending mail-in voting and registration times.  Down in Florida, early voting sites close down due to spikes in COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, the “Baby Evita,” AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (real name: Sandy Cortez), a day after appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in a $14,000 wardrobe ensemble that drove some Republicans to point out the hypocrisy exhibited by the socialist skank leads her to say to them, “Drink some water and don’t be a racist.”  Uh, okay.  We hope you lose on Tuesday. 
  64. 2020 Friday B: President Donald J. Trump is stumping the campaign trail holding 14 rallies in 3 days.  Meanwhile, decrepit old “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to states that should be locks for him because they are leaning towards Trump.  Going to be a hot and heavy finish.  Meanwhile, RNC chairperson Ronna McDaniel says Republicans are winning the early voting turnout as GOPPERS are flocking to the polls expecting riots, assaults, and even homicide on Election Day in many parts of the country.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 45,466,721 confirmed cases, +561,201, 1,186,913, confirmed deaths, +7,702, and 30,583,602 confirmed recoveries, +380,131.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,129,855 confirmed cases, up 86,485 from yesterday’s reporting, 233,117 confirmed deaths, UP 923, and 5,531,311 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,728.  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: 928,240 confirmed cases, 17,581 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,046 confirmed cases, 216 confirmed deaths, and 11,682 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 110,777 confirmed cases, 2,463 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 308,840 confirmed cases, 2,329 confirmed deaths, and 290,130 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 941,851 confirmed cases, 18,373 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries- por que?
  66. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,501.60, DOWN 157.51 points (-0.59%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,911.59, DOWN 274.00 points (-2.45%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,269.96, DOWN 40.15 points (-1.21%).  Price of GOLD: $1,878.80 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.72 per troy oz., +0.069 (+0.29%).  Price of PLATINUM: $847.00 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.17%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,217.20 per troy oz., +18.70 (+0.85%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.05 per #, +0.003 (+0.10%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $35.72, -0.07 (-0.20%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.69 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.73 Afghan afghani.
  67. 2020 Friday E: A Connecticut judge says that Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy’s widow, Ethel, will not face another trial after spending years in prison for the murder of Martha Moxley, decades ago.  Controversy has forever swirled around this case as many believe that since he is a relative of the legendary Kennedy Family, that he was unfairly targeted for the murder of the 15-year-old Moxley at one of the family’s seaside residences back in 1975.  Some suspect that the so-called “Lion of the Senate”- Senator Teddy Kennedy- might have had a hand in it and Skakel paid the price.  The prosecutor says the case cannot be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt and so Skakel will emerge a free man after 45 years in the slammer.  Good for you. 
  68. 2020 Friday F: Tens of thousands of members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ are protesting in streets across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia protesting France’s crackdown on Muslim extremists following the murders of three women- one beheaded- in the Basilica of Notre Dame in Nice.  France through stupid policies that have allowed in armies of people who will never become ‘French’ has led to them going berserk whenever they perceive someone has criticized their backward faith.  Look, undergo a flipping reformation already and join the modern world.  Congratulations, France, for doing what must be done.
  69. 2020 Friday G: Texas voters have cast more than 9 million early votes which is more than the entirety of the votes cast in the Lone Star State back in 2016.  The Democrats are doing everything possible to flip Texas from RED to BLUE using any means necessary.  Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants the U.S. Treasury secretary’s gig when “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins on November 3, while crackpot Senator Bernie Sanders wants to be the Labor secretary.  Failed loser Beto O’Rourke wants to be the ‘gun-grabber czar’ while Congresswoman Sandy Cortez wants to be the head of the Climate Change Bureau so she can take away the rights of the American people.   Speaking of the upper crust, Lori Loughlin, best-known for the old show, “Full House,” reported to a federal prison near Dublin, California, to begin her two-month stint for having bribed their daughters into USC.  When she’s out, hubby Mosimmo Giannulli, will report to the federal pen to do his five-month stint.  Poor bastard paid half-a-million bucks to get their daughters into the University of Southern California by having them pose as FAKE ROWERS.  Wow.
  70. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions #1603 with a jackpot of $118 million on the line: 14, 19, 34, 39, 59 and Mega 11.  The highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $16,660.
  71. 2020 Friday I: As Election Day draws near, we know the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are working hard to steal this election from the American people.  We hope you will stick around for updates on the Chi-Vi as well as whatever we uncover the Beijing bullies and their running dog patsies are up to…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra released their next studio album, “Alone in the Universe” on November 13, 2015.  Jeff Lynne performs most of the instruments with a few extra musicians adding additional flavor.  Critics reviewed the album favorably and fans were excited that the group was back in some semblance of being.  Say what you will, bands that began back in the late 1960s or early 1970s and then broke up and reformed are never as exciting as they were in their heyday but hey!  Lifelong fans tend to revel when ANY newer music appears which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whomever else you do for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this one simple maxim: anything from the bands of the 1960s or 1970s beats any of this anemic he-she crap modern-day bands foist on us.  Period.

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

Friday, October 30, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.  Sadly, we failed to do the music of the Great Society at the time or that of various members’ solo catalogs.  We hope to rectify that mistake one day so please stay tuned.

[ii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[viii] Many people speculate as to WHY Comey would reopen the investigation into Hillary’s missing emails so close to the Election?  Was it because he was demonstrating HIS POWER to Hillary that IF she failed to keep him on at best or worst for the American people, make him the next Attorney-General of the United States that he could destroy her?  Yes, the FBI ‘discovered Anthony Weiner’s laptop with information on it besides the people with whom he was sexting but why would a Deep State maggot like Comey do this to a person whom he wanted to serve?  We await answers…

Meanwhile, U.S. Senators Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. announced that they would vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, all but assuring that Kavanaugh would be confirmed after the Democrats did everything in their power to trash the man’s reputation and destroy him. Typical Democrat behavior.

  50. 2020 Monday: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 14,567,109 confirmed cases, +206,658, 607,187 confirmed deaths, +3,902, and 8,193,138 confirmed recoveries, +121,201.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 3,834,208 confirmed cases, UP by 52,223 new cases, 142,601 confirmed deaths, UP by 372 new deaths, and 1,187,084 confirmed recoveries, UP by 8,566 new recoveries.   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: 391,538 confirmed cases, 7,694 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,381 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,043 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 46,946 confirmed cases, 1,447 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  51. 2020 Monday A: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,680.87, UP 8.92 points (0.33%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,767.09, UP 263.90 points (2.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,251.84, UP 27.11 points (0.84%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,819.00 per troy oz., UP 1.60 (+0.09%), SILVER is at $20.33 per troy oz., UP +0.183 (+0.68%), PLATINUM $862.60 per troy oz. UP +4.70 (+0.55%), and COPPER is at $2.92 # +0.0055 (+0.19%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 40.69, DOWN -0.12 (-0.29%).
  52. 2020 Monday B: Statistics for shootings in Chicago over the weekend are in: 71 people shot and 12 dead.  In New York City, 30 people were shot over the weekend with 10 dead.  Where are Black Lives Matter?  Nowhere because BLM is little more than a left-wing hate group and not a group determined to protect black Americans from violence.
  53. 2020 Monday C: St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner- a political hack of the highest degree- filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for having ‘brandished their weapons in an unlawful manner at PEACEFUL PROTESTERS’ threatening to burn down their home, murder, and rape them, and kill their dog.  This is what happens when former Nazi George Soros buys state attorneys general , secretaries of state, and district attorneys at all levels.  We must stop this POS from undermining the country.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#ST0001.1h Famous Words #8 07-02-2020 (400)

 

Following the release of “Breakfast in America” and the subsequent worldwide tour supporting it, Supertramp returned to the studio and worked long and hard on the follow-up effort, the much maligned “…Famous Last Words,” on October 07, 1982.  This album would be the final one to feature the classic lineup of 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) as change was once more in the wind.  The album did deliver a marvelous single, “It’s Raining Again,” which is a true joy to behold.  Although the flipping critics at the time lambasted both the album and the band for putting out ‘schlock,’ this song alone is well worth the price of admission.  We encourage everyone to seek it out at whatever haunt you do for the absolute best in classic rock music.  You will be glad you did.  We thank you.

Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.
  65. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look. WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment.   Meanwhile, Democratic Party assumed presidential nominee Joe Biden leaves the basement and gives a speech, promoting his Build Back Better campaign slogan.

As usual, we miss some albums and then have to backtrack when presenting the music of a band such as Pink Floyd.  The album we have for you today is “Live at the BBC May 1967-December 1968,” a renowned collection of tunes if ever one existed.  You get 24 amazing cuts in one remarkable place.  Not only do you get recordings by the original group, you also get some as the quintet they became for a brief period.   The price is nice, the sound is fairly good, and if you are completists like the chef-authors at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day are, then you will want to own it as it’s only $25.  So what the heck?  Seek it out now and add it to your collection in the condition, format, and price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.

Gavin Newsom won’t provide them.  Next, here’s Hawaii: 641 number of confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 573 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, we have Washington state where they have a crackpot governor talking about ‘conspiracies from the planet Pluto,’ here are the stats: 18,811 number of confirmed cases, 1,031 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries due to the state not reporting them.  Meanwhile, communist China continues misreporting the statistics but sources within Hong Kong continue getting the truth out and the numbers are 10-15-percent higher than what Beijing is reporting.  Go figure.

Digging deep in the archives, we find “Complete BBC Sessions 1967-1968,” a phenomenal album that came out on October 12, 1988. This album features 24 cuts the group did for the BBC, which is always exciting for fans of any British rock band as everyone knows the BBC produces some amazing music. Wish we had something like it in the United States back in the 1960s and 1970s. We hope you will seek this seminal psychedelic British band’s album out as you will indeed enjoy it. We thank you for giving it a listen…

  53. 2014: The Obama Administration announces that it is going to enroll 7 million people in government-mandated medical insurance plans by the deadline of midnight tonight—they fell short. Elsewhere, the International Court of Justice at the U.N. agrees that Japanese whaling is conducted for commercial purposes, not scientific research; Japan accepts the order to cease all whaling activities in the Antarctic—the Greenpeace scumbags are delirious with joy.
  54. 2015: Even though the deadline for discussions on the Iranian nuclear program has arrived, the petulant terrorist nation and six other countries agree to continue the talks because ‘some progress has been made.’ The Iranians are lying scumbags and we cannot trust them.
  55. 2018: President Donald J. Trump’s first secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, found himself fired today. He served from 02-01-2017 to 03-31-2018. This pretentious fool called his boss a “moron,’ which is one of the major reasons he got canned. He was actively working against the president from within the State Department.
  56. 2019: So many illegal aliens are attempting to storm the United States that the Trump administration has threatened to close the border with Mexico. The American people want to know, when will there be enough ‘invaders’ for the ruling class to understand this and to then authorize the use of deadly force? We cannot wait until the nation has been toppled via the sheer numbers of illegals seeking entry to the country. Shoot them down!
  57. 2020: As the day sputters to an end, cases of the Wuhan Virus continue going up although communist China continues braying like sheep  that cases there are going down and life is returning to normal.  Uh, okay, can’t trust communists folks.  As we wrap up for the day, total confirmed cases around the planet are at 858,785 what with a total of 42,139 confirmed deaths worldwide.  In the United States, there are 203,608 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu with 4,476 confirmed deaths.  Again, thank you, China.  Today, the governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, says life will be shut down until sometime in June, returning to normal a day AFTER the GOP primary takes place.  What a scumbag.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

02. #RM01.1w Ladytron #23 03-06-2015 (400)

 

On August 15, 2006, Roxy Music released a great live album—“Ladytron”–recorded around the time the band released their “Manifesto” album and went on tour to promote it. “Manifesto” marked a return for the band who had taken a brief hiatus of sorts and the songs on the album were among their best. To hear them knock them out live is a joy as is the fact that there are some old favorites on the album, too. We hope that you will go to Amazon.com where you can get it in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you—you will love this spectacular live set.

AAA. 2017: Much to the horror of President Donald J. Trump and to Trump’s voters, new Attorney-General Jeff Sessions recuses himself from the Russian collusion scam investigation saying that he had ‘met with the Russian ambassador.’ Huh. Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and numerous other Democrats ALL had met with the Russian ambassador on far too many occasions yet there we were, the beginning of a fraudulent investigation that pitted American against American.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#PM01.1d Guitarissimo 75-83 #4 08-19-16 (400)

 

Phil Manzanera released his fourth solo album, “Guitarissimo 75-86” in 1986. Always among the most eclectic and innovative guitarists in the world, Manzanera always attempted to play the guitar in ways in which, it did NOT sound as though it was a guitar. We love the second part of the Roxy Music triumvirate’s amazing guitar chops and this album rocks the socks off the uninitiated and sends the ‘initiated’ to the depths of the Solar System.  We hope you will check it out and enjoy it for years to come. You will be glad you did.

Foster, Todd Rundgren, Paris, Hunt Sales, Bob Welch, Glenn Cornick,

[i] We definitely hope to present the music of ALL the classic Motown bands- including the famed Four Tops- sometime within the next decade. Please, stay tuned for further developments.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014. At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed. We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again. Thank you for your patience.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Todd Rundgren but one day, we sure as heck will so please stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Paris at the same time we did Fleetwood Mac. Sadly, we will promote Paris when we do Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, and Blodwyn Pig. Paris created two fine albums in the 1970s. Besides Sales, the band featured guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch and bassist/keyboardist Glenn Cornick.

[v] 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.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#BF01.1e The Bride Stripped #5 08-19-16 (400)

 

We have mentioned that sometimes, Bryan Ferry hits the nail on the head and other times, he leaves his listeners stumbling around in the dark searching for a theme. Well, “The Bride Stripped Bare” (1978), is an album that has some dark movements but then, every album Ferry records is a stunning individualistic effort that fans enjoy. Ferry defined Roxy Music, Roxy Music defined Ferry, and one can see and hear common threads roaming through the works of each.  We hope you will look for this fabulous album out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music. We know you will enjoy it.

2016: Enrique Marquez underwent arraignment for having helped dead terrorist Syed Farook purchase firearms, so the San Bernardino terrorist could avoid a background check. The pair also planned another terrorist event back in 2012 but lost the nerve to carry it out the plot. Marquez cooperated with the FBI, but it probably will do him little good.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#TT001.1a From Nowhere #1 12-25-2019 (400)

 

 

One of the rock world’s greatest bands, the Troggs, formed in England in 1964 and catapulted to massive stardom almost overnight. The band’s first album, “From Nowhere,” aka “Wild Thing” in the United States, came out on July 25, 1966. The hit tune, “Wild Thing” was on it and the band went gold. The group consisted of Reg Presley (vocals), Chris Britton (guitars/backing vocals), Pete Staples (bass/backing vocals), and Ronnie Bond (drums). The power of “Wild Thing” was so infectious that the Jimi Hendrix Experience would perform it live in the mid-to-late 1960s blowing the minds of listeners around the world. We hope you will seek this album out by visiting Amazon.com and picking it up there in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you. You will be glad you did.
