  47. 2016 Friday: Harper Lee- the author of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” died at age 89.  Elsewhere, the ‘so-called religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again as suicide bombers in northern Cameroon blow up at least 24 people and wound another 112 at an outdoor market.  What the f**k is wrong with Boko Haram.  Meanwhile, Israeli police are forced to shoot and kill three Palestinian jihadists in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Bernie Sanders confirms he is going to run for president of the United States a second time.  Meanwhile, President Trump announces plans to elevate U.S. Secretary of Transportation Jeffrey Rosen as deputy head of the U.S. Department of Justice.  Next, President Trump signs the order to create the U.S. Space Force, the newest branch of government that will prepare to defend the nation’s interests in the realm of space.
  51. 2020 Wednesday: Information appears that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that multi-billionaire Michael “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg is indeed doing everything imaginable to buy the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  As of today, he has spent more than $400 million on network and cable TV channels as well as on radio.  What he has spent on Internet advertising is so far unknown.  Tonight, six candidates face off in the Democratic 2020 Primary Debate on NBC: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and former Mayor Bloomberg.  Absent are billionaire Tom Steyer and of course, Tulsi Gabbard, whom the Democrats do NOT want.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich gives a news conference on the porch of his home.  His sentence commuted to time served the day before by President Donald J. Trump, he proclaims himself a “Trump-o-Crat” and pledges to work to help others who have been unjustly punished by the Comey-led FBI.  Good for you, Mr. Governor, good for you.  Finally, President Donald Trump visits the city of Bakersfield, home of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.
  52. 2021 Friday: Day 31 of the Biden Regime: first of all- due to growing pushback on both sides of the aisle- Joe Biden acknowledges the $15 per hour minimum wage hike may not happen anytime soon.   Next, the House Democrats demonstrate how much they hate President Donald J. Trump by their creation of a new bill- the “No Glory for Hate Act”- which will prohibit twice-impeached presidents from being celebrated, buried in Arlington National Cemetery, or having monuments and roads and the like named after them.  Wow.  Elsewhere, as the investigators investigate the Capitol Hill police officers, six of them are suspended with pay while another 35 are being scrutinized for having affiliations to President Donald J. Trump.  Kool-Aid-guzzling U.S. Army General Russell L. Honoré Ret. And chief inquisitor of the Antifa-infiltrated- and- lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021 is digging posthaste to uncover the evildoers behind the appalling assault on Capitol Hill, only he’s looking at those with MAGA sympathies and not at the real instigators and proponents of what happened on the dark day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter stormed the Capitol. 
  53. 2021 Friday A: Climate ‘czar’ John F. Kerry vows tough stance on all climate evildoers in the U.S. as the United States rejoins the Paris Climate Accord, yet another selling out of the United States to globalists.   Meanwhile, in the ‘post-COVID-19 world,’ the TSA announces plans to hire another 6,000 agents so the liberals can increase the numbers of their secret police at all airports across the nation.  Man, that Chi-Vi is permitting our government to skip down the totalitarian path.  Elsewhere, in the Free World of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, proposes sweeping election reforms in his state.   Finally, the Minneapolis Police Department are beefing up security both at the courthouse and around the city as the Derek Chauvin trial looms on the horizon. 
  54. 2021 Friday B: Boko Haram thugs in Niger kidnap 27 students from a boarding school and carry them off into the jungle.  The SOBS must be short on wives, again.  Next, the Kremlin warns the West to pull back from sanctions related to Alexei Navalny’s prison sentence, ‘or else.’  Speaking of thugs, the ‘paradise of Iran’ demands the U.S. repeal and remove ALL sanctions on their country imposed by President Donald J. Trump.  Don’t worry, grand ayatollah, the U.S. is going to rejoin the flawed nuclear deal the Obama-Biden administration participated in with your country.  Speaking of this deal, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasts the Biden-Harris administration for reentering this deal.  Under President Trump, the Iranians were on their knees begging for mercy.  Now, it’s back to business as usual. 
  55. 2021 Friday C: Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department imposes travel sanctions on 43 Belorussian officials and bigwigs over the actions of their corrupt government.  The Biden administration loves Iran but wants to punish Russia and Belorussia.  WTF?  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is attempting to rally ‘quad democracies’ to pushback against a belligerent communist China.  Why?  The Biden Family and many members of his administration LOVE the Chi-Coms.  Must be just for show.
  56. 2021 Friday D: RINO Senator Jon Thune says the ‘GOP is engaging in ‘cancel culture’ by going after the losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump as well as the RINO senators who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump.’  Will these losers ever learn their flipping lessons?  It appears not.  The American people will have to show them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. begins admitting the first batch of illegal aliens begging for asylum into the country even though south Texas mayors are begging the federal government not to do this because they have no support they can provide them.  Let ‘em freeze.   Elsewhere, the feds are pushing to kick the National Rifle Association’s top lawyer off the bankruptcy case.   Finally, good citizens are working alongside police in Oakland’s Chinatown to catch the thug or thugs who have been attacking Chinese citizens.  We still suspect when the culprit is caught, it will be another minority.  Speaking of the Chinese, Great Britain is welcoming in thousands of Hong Kong’s citizens who are escaping the crackdown by the thugs in Beijing.  In the next five years, London could welcome in as many as 300,000 people along with their dependents.
  57. 2021 Friday E: ERCOT says the catastrophic collapse of the power grid in Texas which led to massive blackouts would have occurred anyway even without the severe weather storm.  Still, the operators have gotten the power system up-and-running.  What the heck has happened to nuclear energy?  It’s safe, reliable, cheap, and lasts forever.  All we need do is to find a way to recycle used nuclear fuel so we can reuse it.   Elsewhere, Dolly Parton nixes the idea of putting a statue dedicated to her in the Tennessee State Capitol Building.  Who would want such an honor in this world of left-wing pansy cancel culture?  Revered today, torn down and defaced tomorrow.  Finally, doctors at Johns Hopkins University say ‘herd immunity for the Chi-Com Flu can be achieved by April 2021.’
  58. 2021 Friday F: We learn that the Wuhan Institute of Virology has received U.S. money to study dangerous diseases including the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chinese Virus, millions of vaccines for this lab-engineered malady continue to linger in freezer facilities across the country.  Joe Biden says ‘NO such vaccine existed when he came into office’ but we know that a man who asks his wife, ‘where we’re at’ every day he awakens in the White House residence does not know very much, including that he and his wife received their vaccines ahead of his taking the oath of office.  Speaking of the Chi-Com pandemic, the Baby Evita- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez (birth name) is jumping on the anti-Andrew “Killer” Cuomo bandwagon and much like NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, driving the dagger into the beleaguered Empire State governor.   Wow.  Just like piranha fish.
  59. 2021 Friday G: The American Civil Liberties Union asks SCOTUS to declare all-male draft ‘unconstitutional.’  Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian files for divorce from entertainment mogul Kanye West.  Next, a day after its passage, a federal court strikes down South Carolina’s abortion bill, one that prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.  The bill is designed to prohibit abortion chop shops such as Planned Parenthood from operating in minority communities where they murder mostly minority unborn children, sell the fetal body parts to scientists, Satanists, and other sick f**ks, and then donate money back to the Democratic Socialist Party of the United States.  WTF?  Meanwhile, Representative Mark Green says, ‘the Biden immigration plan is pretty flipping crazy.’  Amen.  Illegal alien hunting licenses, anyone?  Next, Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO., to Newsmax TV: “Follow the Trump template to restore the economy.”   Finally, following Nikki Haley’s failed attempt to meet with President Donald J. Trump at Mar-A-Lago after BLASTING the 45th president and the man who made her ambassador to the United Nations, Senator Lindsey Graham has embarked on a peace mission to see the president.  Interesting Note- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered all flags to fly at half-mast for Rush Limbaugh.
  60. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 109,901,931 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,850.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, UP 2,253, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 31 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 168,862 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  61. 2021 Friday I: 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: 3,514,246 confirmed cases, 48,411 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 428 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 335,340 confirmed cases, 4,868 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: South Carolina- currently, they have 497,937 confirmed cases, 8,213 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 741,934 confirmed cases, 5,509 confirmed deaths, and 688,184 confirmed recoveries.     
  62. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,816 cases, +10 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,696 confirmed recoveries, +46 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Maggot-eating scum.   NOTE- communists lie.  They ALWAYS LIE.  They lie about everything.  They cover up dastardly deeds like that POS moronic New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and when threatened with exposure, they begin making threats.  Scumbags, all of them scumbags.
  63. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,494.32, UP 0.98 points (+0.003%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,874.46, UP 9.11 points (+0.066%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,906.71, DOWN 7.26 points (-0.19%).  Although stocks are jumping up and down, we still anticipate the collapse of the U.S. economy as long as (1) businesses don’t reopen in BLUE states; (2) Joe Biden allows the Third World to flood into the United States; (3) economic idiots are running the show in the ‘Biden administration;’ and (4) fossil fuel production is collapsing thanks to Green New Deal policies being implemented by the frigging Democratic-Socialists.
  64. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,783.10 per troy oz., +5.70 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, +0.12 (+0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,282.20 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.84%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,379.80 per troy oz, +21.00 (+0.89%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.01 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000018 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.95 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.  Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1635 with a $20 million pot up for grabs. Here are the numbers- 27, 32, 47, 50, 53, and Mega 04.  Out of 52,450 winning tickets, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $421 apiece.

The next live album put out by UFO, “TNT- Live in Texas 1979’ came out on April 05, 1994 and features a hard-rocking set by the legendary British rockers while on tour in Texas.  The lineup featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Paul Chapman (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Paul Raymond (keyboards/rhythm guitar) which is a glorious lineup.  Sure, fans love Michael Schenker as who doesn’t but Chapman was a superb replacement for the fiery German axman.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider making it a part of your collection, you will be so glad to own it.  Your friends will flock to your house to join in a listening session and if you have amp-like speakers in your home, turn the volume way up and rock out.  We guarantee you will love it…

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

Friday, February 19, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[ii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[vi] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[vii] We began celebrating the music of Wishbone Ash beginning on Sunday, October 28, 2018 and continued it through Sunday, January 06, 2019.  From there, we covered the music of Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash beginning on January 07, 2019 through Sunday, January 13, 2019.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection of the BEST rock-and-roll music.  You will be glad you did.

[viii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  On Tuesday, 18-January-2011, we promoted the album, “Rumours.”  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

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.

We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[ii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s. Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years. We hope you will still be with us.
