ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On January 22, 1976, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- released their first official ‘best of package,’ “M.U.- the Best of Jethro Tull” which featured slim pickings of 11 tracks culled from their earlier albums and again from the two albums following “Thick as a Brick” and “A Passion Play.”  If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “Living in the Past” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL

Trump continues fighting the good fight alone.  On this day, his Defense Secretary Mark Esper distances himself from the commander-in-chief over the president’s trip to St. John’s Church across from the White House as a ‘photo op’ as well as the fact that he has suggested that ‘if governors don’t get their states under control, he might implement the Insurrection Act to force them to do so.  Former Defense Secretary General James “Mad Dog” Mattis slams the president in an article in Atlantic magazine while former President Barack Hussein Obama gives a statement on race relations in the United States and what must be done to solve them.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Although panned at first, Jethro Tull’s next album, “A Passion Play,” (July 13, 1973), became their second biggest seller in the United States.  The album is some ways resembled “Thick as a Brick” in that it was a continuous piece of music broken up over two sides of the original LP release but unlike the former album was indeed a bit of a concept album.  Guiding light Ian Anderson was always in his element as both a composer and a performer and this album is no different.  Fans of the band tend to roll with the flow as we and you will do, too.  The lineup featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jeffrey Hammond (bass and keyboards), John Evan (keyboards), and Barriemore Barlow (drums).  We hope you will consider seeking this one out and making it a part of your listening day.  Thank you.

  68. 2021 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The archivists of UFO at the band’s original label got a superb idea and released the crème de la crème of the group’s early days in 10 essential tracks- all remastered of course- entitled, “All the Hits and More- the Early Years” (December 22, 2010).  Back in the day, the band featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Mick Bolton (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion) and you get the must-own tunes any diehard fan or newbie should own.  IF you have yet to introduce yourself to this phenomenal band, folks, this is a wonderful way in which you and your ears can get into the groove.  Granted, at Amazon the CD sells for around $25-50 depending upon where you might look but what the f**k?  When it comes to rock music, only buy the best and friends, UFO is among the top 20 greatest British rock bands.

  53. 2016 Thursday: Pope Francis[vii], an unpopular pontiff with millions of people worldwide shows his true colors when he criticizes presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s Christianity over the billionaire’s promises to build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.  WTF, pope?  We cannot enforce our laws?  You have walls surrounding the Vatican City, tear them down or STFU.  Elsewhere, South Korea announces that it has intelligence that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has personally given his intelligence services the go-ahead to launch terrorist attacks in the South.
  54. 2017 Saturday: Former American abortion activist Norma McCorvey, the “Jane Roe” in Roe v.

  55. 2018 Sunday: An Iranian airlines flight crashes in the Zagros Mountains, killing all 66 people on board.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump sends out a series of Tweets in which, he expresses his displeasure on a variety of things.  Here is what he said in some of his messages: “If it was the GOAL of Russia to create discord, disruption and chaos within the U.S. then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

  58. 2021 Thursday: Day 30 of the Biden Regime.  First, in a magnanimous moment of charity, Bill Gates suggests that it might be ‘okay’ for Donald Trump to be allowed back onto social media platforms- what a guy.  Speaking of Big Tech, Facebook is screeching and crying over to having to pay for its news feeds in Australia.  The country passed a law in which social media and search engine platforms Downunder must reimburse the sources from whence the news emanates.  Of course, Facebook does not like this.  Stop the sobbing.  In other media news, we learn today that Antifa thug John “Jake” Sullivan, a POS Marxist who led the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021 received $35,000 each from CNN and NBC for his photos of the death of Ashlii Babbitt on that horrendous day, one the Dems continue trying to tie to former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of that horrible day and its aftermath, General Russell L. Honoré- the hero of Hurricane Katrina and now, a Kool-Aid-guzzling hack hired by Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to investigate the left-wing Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, is saying all manner of crazy things.  First, the barbed wire and walls around the Capitol aren’t leaving anytime soon, next that most of the line officers are pro-Trumpers, and that various Republicans must be rounded up, expelled, or imprisoned.  What happened to this guy?  Fascism is coming to a town or city near YOU soon.
  59. 2021 Thursday A: Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas is overwhelmed by the collapse of his state’s power infrastructure.  The winter storm has virtually stopped ALL power generation.  No one ever thought something like this would happen to the Lone Star State and those of us who might have thought about moving there at some point are now reconsidering those thoughts.  Apparently the Electrical Reliability Council of Texas- never anticipated a disaster such as what has millions in the dark, sans heat, sans electricity, sans water, and sans communication services,  Meanwhile, conservative Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was caught on film taking his family to Cancun, Mexico, to escape the winter freeze-for-all in his home state.   In other energy-winter news, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is asking the federal government for a natural disaster emergency declaration.
  60. 2021 Thursday B: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has told him to say he is going to establish a commission to look into reparations for slavery.  We went to our colleague Chef Bea O’Malley for his opinion on this matter and this is what she said: “NEVER gonna happen and here’s why- IF the Democrats were to give us black folks ‘reparations’ for something none of us have ever known (unless we came from the Third World), it would take one of their biggest RACISM ‘drums’ off the drum kit.  Thus, they never will do this because they would rather bang the drum for the rest of eternity than to actually address a ‘problem’ none of us living in this country have ever known.’  She also pointed out the obvious: they can’t even get us Chi-Vi relief checks so how the heck are they going to get us ‘reparations?’  The earpiece also told Joe Biden to look into how he can remove ALL student loan debt from the American people.  Our question: are the professors going to work for free or are we, the American people, going to have to foot this bill, too?  Dumb ass.
  61. 2021 Thursday C: House Financial Services Committee Chairperson Maxine Waters, D-CA, is busting the balls of CEOs from Robinhood and Reddit today over the GameStop debacle that saw the price of the stock driven sky high and then billions in short sales.   Of course Democrats are upset they didn’t make some money off this amazingly successful strategy.   Meanwhile, the numbers of people murdered by New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo in his vast nursing home scandal and conspiracy, the one in which, he channeled COVID-19-infected people back into the places from whence they came and where their fellow patients were highly vulnerable to infection, illness, and death.  The number of nursing home deaths now sits at 19,000 dead and moron Cuomo MUST go to prison for this outrage.   Elsewhere around the country, the Los Angeles County School District has voted to remove ALL police from their school campuses and to seek $25,000 from the LAPD annual budget so they can concentrate on racial equity programs.   We bet YOU guys feel so good about yourselves, don’t you, wetting your panties we bet.  Finally, in California, the drive to recall Governor Gavin Newsom has far surpassed the necessary 1.5 million signatures which is why this POS nephew of Nancy Pelosi has signed a law that mandates the mailing of ballots to every registered voter (and illegal aliens) so as to ‘protect them from the Chinese Virus.  What does that say about mail-in ballots?
  62. 2021 Thursday D: Unemployment figures from last week far surpassed the week before, coming in at 861,000.  Thank you, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for being such a worthless POS that you are.  Your policies are killing the country.  Meanwhile, another POS politician- Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, under censure from the state’s GOP joins the loony tunes circus by saying, “There are white supremacists in both the GOP and the Democratic Party.”  WTF is wrong with YOU?  Another loser, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says the ‘state’s GOP should focus on elections and not on (her) rebuke.’  Senator Collins, you MUST go.  Speaking of elections, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says the national GOP is working on securing elections across the country.  Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, has gone to Mar-A-Lago to visit with President Donald J. Trump.   Speaking of the former president, 75-percent of Republicans want Mr. Trump to continue as a major guiding light of the GOP which does not bode well for the “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell RINO wing of the party. 
  63. 2021 Thursday E: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has given him a NEW immigration plan- near immediate legalization of 11 million illegal aliens in the country (an extremely low number seeing as how various estimates have put the numbers closer to between 30-50 million shadow-dwellers).  Some Democrats are beginning to tremble because if illegals become immediate citizens, the economy is going to tank, America’s genuine citizens are going to suffer, and crime rates are going to skyrocket rather than plummet.  Still, no one will talk sense to Barack Hussein Obama- oops- Joe Biden, certainly no one within his administration.  Elsewhere, any answers about flawed ‘Joe Biden policies’ are answered by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki with ‘this one’s a woman, that one’s gay, that one is intersectional,’ like it’s somehow some sort of consolation that the person charged with fixing the problems are men who have become women or women who have become men, etc.  Enough with the identity politics already.   It almost makes us wish the Chi-Coms or the Russkies or the Taliban would take over so we could clean house on all this insanity.   In other Joe Biden news, the earpiece tells Usurper Joe to negate another Trump order, one that limited ‘climate change’ as a hashmark in federal reviews. 
  64. 2021 Thursday F: Here are particulars for the bill for the border swimmers and jumpers- 8 pathway to citizenship for ‘11’ (truly 30-50) million illegals.  Temporary status of five years plus three-year wait for citizenship.  The word, “illegal aliens” will be removed and ‘undocumented Democrats,’ oops, ‘undocumented persons will take its place as will be more immigration courts and judges plus $4 billion investment in Central America and infrastructure so illegals wanting to come here can begin the process there.  Effectively, NO one is going to be deported.  Thank you, Joe, thank you for destroying our country.
  65. 2021 Thursday G: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 109,901,391 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,350.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, +2,253 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as three weeks ago, going on four.  NOTE- in the White House 30 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 166,609 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  66. 2021 Thursday H: 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: 3,505,032 confirmed cases, 47,902 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 427 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 334,284 confirmed cases, 4,824 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Missouri: currently, they have 510,705 confirmed cases, 7,929 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 738,629 confirmed cases, 5,473 confirmed deaths, and 681,249 confirmed recoveries.    
  67. 2021 Thursday I: For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Germany: currently, they have 2,362,352 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 67,074 confirmed deaths, and 2,153,918 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes where he killed at least 15,000-20,000 if not more.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  He will neither apologize nor will he admit his guilt.  This man must go to prison, his book should be canceled, and his Emmy stripped away.  Imagine if HE was a Republican.  The Democrats are slamming this piece of pond scum while the FBI is looking into his actions.  We also learned that Governor “Killer” Cuomo called Democrats in the state’s legislature and threatened them with repercussions.  F**k him.
  68. 2021 Thursday J:  IS THIS THE BEGINNING OF THE BIDEN DEPRESSION WE PREDICTED WOULD HAPPEN IN LATE SPRING/EARLY SUMMER?  We will keep our eyes on the crumbling stocks and commodities markets.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes but note- the Stock Market is now plummeting thanks to identity politics in the White House: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,493.34, DOWN 119.68 points (-0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,865.36, DOWN 100.14 points (-0.72%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,913.97, DOWN 17.36 points (-0.44%).  The price of GOLD is $1,770.20 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $26.89 per troy ounce, -0.19 (-0.69%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,274.20 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.04%) while the price of COPPER is $3.90 per pound, 0.00 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,558.80 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.06%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.84 (-1.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000019 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 5.43 Brazilian Real.
  69. 2021 Thursday K: Former President Donald J. Trump’s approval ratings among all citizens now rests at 59-percent approval ratings.  Meanwhile, a U.S. Senate panel has scheduled February 23, 2021, as the date for holding a hearing on the SolarWinds hack.  Next, the CDC releases a report in which, it says there ‘is no credible evidence that foods can pass the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Panda Pandemic, or the Chi-Vi to other human beings.  Speaking of the ‘VID, vaccine trials with pregnant women set to begin soon so as to fill a major black hole in what’s known about the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s escaped disease.   Meanwhile, in 2020 during the Chi-Com Fever, greenhouse gas emissions fell by 9.2-percent.  Elsewhere, the Taliban sent a letter to feeble old Joe Biden informing him that ‘he had better stick to the timeline on withdrawing U.S. troops his predecessor negotiated with the terrorist group.’   Speaking of Donald Trump, President Donald J. Trump wistfully tells Newsmax ‘IF ONLY ‘Cocaine Mitch’ McConnell would hit back at Joe Biden and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer as hard as he hits me.’  That’s a hell of a statement.   Finally- as if no one did not know this, the U.S. is putting out feelers to rejoin the JCPOA, the corrupt agreement with which to prevent the Iranians from going nuclear.  Wow.
  70. 2021 Thursday L: NASA successfully landed their latest Mars Rover today.  This is their most advanced lander yet, one that will test for signs of ancient (and present) life as well as run experiments with which to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen.   There also is a plan to return rock and soil samples back to the Earth.  Gee, after what has happened with the Chi-Coms and their Panda Pandemic, is that not something we could do on, say, the moon?  Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives introduces a bill with which to ban all products from Xinjiang Province in western China in which, slave labor produced it.  The Chi-Coms would have to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that NO slave labor by Uighurs or other Muslims produced it.  Xinjiang Province produces much of the world’s cotton and cotton products and the Uighur and other religious minority slaves are the ones doing it. 
  71. 2021 Thursday M: Texas cold snap enters its sixth day as biggest energy-producing state in the United States contends with systemic power outrages that have killed more than 20 people and left 4 million Texans in the dark and in the cold.  Many are having to boil snow to obtain water because any water coming out of the pipes is not potable seeing as how water purification plants have shut down due to loss of power from windmills and solar farms.  IF anyone requires a glimpse of what a future under loony tunes Green New Deal legislation looks like, take a good, long look at Texas, the number one state with the biggest fossil fuel reserves.  Liberalism has infected a conservative government and left the citizens of the Lone Star state suffering because of it.   Whatever that bug-eyed dingbat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we should do the exact flipping opposite of it.

  18. 1944 Thursday: The Royal Air Force drops 2,300 tons of bombs on the Nazi capital of Berlin.  Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, German positions around Leningrad are becoming untenable.  In some areas as they attempt to withdraw, Soviet gunners turn the artillery that had been bombarding the historic city for more than two years on them as they retreat.  To the south, the fight to reduce the Cherkassy pocket- dubbed by the Germans as the “Witches Cauldron”- continued, a battle that began on Christmas Eve and still was raging.  Ordered by Hitler to stand and fight, the Germans were trying to figure how to pull out of the ‘cauldron’ before they ended up like their comrades in Stalingrad did the previous year: annihilated.

  51. 2015 Tuesday: U.S. President Barack Obama gives his State of the Union address, promoting free community college education, increased capital gains taxes on the rich, more paid time off for employees, and greater tax credits for the middle class.  Elsewhere, as violence continues across Yemen, Houthi rebels storm the presidential palace in Sana’a.
  52. 2016 Wednesday: Both NASA and NOAA announce that 2015 WAS THE HOTTEST YEAR ON RECORD since records began being kept in 1890.  This, of course, becomes a common refrain year after year after year as the Climate Change alarmists continue screeching, “THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING,” yet, the sky NEVER FALLS.  Meanwhile, Caltech scientists release more ‘evidence’ that there could very well be a ‘Planet NINE’ on the outer edges of the Solar System, far beyond the Kuiper Belt. 
  53. 2017 Friday: Following the oath taken by Vice President-elect Mike Pence to become the nation’s 48th vice president, Donald Trump took the oath of office as the 45th president of the United States, pledging emphatically to empower America’s ‘forgotten men and women.’  Protesters registered their rage against the new president in a chaotic confrontation with police just blocks from the inaugural parade, screaming, crying, melting down, and some such as Madonna threatening to blow up the White House.  What a bunch of leftist trash.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms the first two Cabinet picks of President Trump- James “Mad Dog” Mattis to become his secretary for defense and John Kelly to head Homeland Security, both of whom are former generals. 
  54. 2017 Friday A:  Across the world in Syria, ISIS destroys portions of the ancient Roman amphitheater in Palmyra by blowing it up with TNT.   Behead this murderous scum.  Elsewhere in Syria, either U.S. or Russian warplanes carry out an airstrike on ISIS positions west of Aleppo killing at least 40 or more thugs and wounding loads of others.
  55. 2018 Saturday: Bass player with the Zombies[ix], Argent, and the Kinks[x]– Jim Rodford- died in a fall at his home on this date.  Meanwhile, a dispute in Congress over spending and immigration forced scores of federal government agencies and outposts to close their doors; federal officials turned tourists away from sites such as the Statue of Liberty and Philadelphia’s Independence Hall.  However, two days later, Congress voted to temporarily pay for resumed operations.  On the anniversary of President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration, left-wing demonstrators in cities across the country marched in support of female empowerment and denounced Trump’s (suspected but unproven) views on immigration, LGBT rights, and other issues.  Widespread belief is that POS such as Georgy Soros and Tom Steyer, among others, fund these crackpot demonstrations.
  56. 2019 Sunday: In the NFC Championship Game, the visiting Los Angeles Rams stun the home team favorite New Orleans Saints in OT by a final score of 26-23.   In the AFC Championship Game, the visiting New England Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs, also in OT, by a final score of 37-31.  Elsewhere, the march of peace continues.  Following suspension of diplomatic relations in 1972, Chadian President Idriss Deby and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu restore diplomatic relations in Chad’s capital of N’Djamena. Peace is awesome!

  58. 2021 Wednesday:  NOT OUR PRESIDENT, folks: Joseph R. Biden Jr. took the oath of office today as the nation’s 46th president while his heir apparent Kamala Harris took the oath of office as the nation’s 49th vice president.  The oaths they swore are to uphold the U.S. Constitution and all the laws of the United States.  While preaching unity, they insult their political opponents every opportunity they get while GOP leadership in the House and Senate are already brown-nosing the duo.  Disgraceful.   Many Americans are renouncing their GOP membership beginning today including several chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We expect to see an avalanche of millions of similarly disgruntled Republicans following in our heels.
  59. 2021 Wednesday A: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, a fair-weather Republican if ever one existed says that Mitch McConnell should ‘unequivocally oppose’ the second impeachment of Donald J. Trump, especially now that he’s out of office.  Elsewhere, Donald Trump flew out of Joint Base Andrews to his home in Florida earlier today.  Meanwhile, apparently some knucklehead phoned in a ‘bomb threat’ to the U.S. Supreme Court but all the radical, right-wing, QAnon violence the Democrats swore was going to explode all over the place has not happened.  We see it for what it is, folks, just another attempt at tarring and feathering all Trump supporters.  Finally, both drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and forever-angry Hillary Rodham Clinton are trying to revive the long-dead strawman of Trump-Russia Collusion when the two should be investigating Communist China-Democratic Party Collusion.
  60. 2021 Wednesday B: Outgoing President Trump issued 70 commutations and 73 pardons including one for Judge Jeannine Pirro’s ex-husband, Al.  Also, in his final hours, the outgoing president issued oil drilling leases in Alaska’s Wildlife Refuge.  Elsewhere, Ret. Gen. Lloyd Austin, ‘President Biden’s’ pick for Defense secretary says he is willing to lift the ban on transgenders serving in the U.S. military, one imposed by the previous administration because of the exorbitant costs transgender service personnel cost the American taxpayers.  Here we go.   A return to identity politics of all types- how soon before ‘furries’ and pedophiles and peeping toms and S & M’ers and multiple-partner marriages and everyone else with any kind of sexual proclivity gets special treatment from the ‘Biden administration?’
  61. 2021 Wednesday C: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin says that launching infrastructure projects in all 50 states would get the American people back to work and back on their feet.  Sounds great, let’s see it happen.  Meanwhile, SpaceX bought two deep water offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico to convert into space ports.  Elsewhere, Ford and Mazda are recalling 3 million cars due to airbag problems.  Speaking of automobiles, KIA shares are soaring over rumors of electric car production.  We shall see.  Overseas, like the Orwellian figures they are, the Chi-Coms trot out Jack Ma, his first public appearance in months, so the world can see they haven’t offed him yet.  Read “1984” and you will understand WHY this matters.  Finally, ‘President Joe Biden’ sends an immigration overhaul bill to the U.S. Congress that will legalize between 11 and 40 million illegal aliens within the fabric of the country as well as will draw millions more to swamp our constitutional republic.
  62. 2021 Wednesday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden signed 15 executive orders today.  First, he is initiating the return of the United States to the Paris Climate Accord.  Next, he revoked the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, much to the horror of our northern neighbor, Canada.  Then, he removed his predecessor’s travel ban on people coming in from mostly Muslim countries with a history of terrorism.  Following that, he signed one strengthening DACA protections for illegal aliens brought here as children.  Speaking of illegals, he is removing the ‘emergency funding’ that diverted U.S. DOD funds to continue building the southern border wall.  He also mandated that in all federal buildings and on all federal lands, masks must be worn at all times.   Another one would also count illegal aliens in the U.S. Census which will enable Democrats to win more House seats because of higher population counts. 
  63. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden also cried out against ‘domestic terrorism,’ ‘white supremacy,’ and other evil things among opposition party members.  He also said he can ‘hear the planet crying out to him.’  What is it about the bogus Climate Change scam liberals continue pushing?  First, if we are to believe in science then everyone should understand that the Sun is the number one driver of ‘climate change’ on every planet in the Solar System blessed with a climate.  In addition to that, millions of bombs were exploded in the previous century, nuclear weapons tests conducted below ground, at ground level, under the ocean, and even in the atmosphere and still, the planet is not dead nor will it die.  Yet, they continue pushing this bogus scheme because it is a way of fleecing those with money and then redistributing it to wherever they wish.  “Taxing the air” is what they call it…
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 96,640,644 confirmed cases, +581,653, 2,068,921, confirmed deaths, +15,537, and 53,267,010 confirmed recoveries, +372,842.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,433,486 confirmed cases, up 143,073 from yesterday’s reporting, 404,812 confirmed deaths, UP 1,749, and 10,562,082 confirmed recoveries, UP 51,007.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: 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: 3,071,119 confirmed cases, 34,443 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 325 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 296,363 confirmed cases, 4,020 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Montana: currently, they have 90,255 confirmed cases, 1,094 confirmed deaths, and 84,255 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 575,842 confirmed cases, 4,181 confirmed deaths, and 478,897 confirmed recoveries. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,188.38, UP 257.86 points (+0.83%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,457.25, UP 260.07 points (+1.97%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,851.85, UP 52.94 points (+1.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.60 per troy oz., +3.10 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $25.90 per troy ounce, +0.134 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,114.50 per troy oz, -1.90 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.65 per pound, +0.0045 (+0.12%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,403.20 per troy oz, +38.20 (+1.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.96 per barrel, -0.35 (-0.66%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.58.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: Upon entering the Oval Office, almost immediately, ‘President’ Joe Biden deletes the 1776 Project page from the White House website.  Instead, he will promote the 1619 Project which vilifies the founding of the United States and its history.  It is important to note that today’s Inauguration Day events appeared more like a totalitarian state than they did an American event, the peaceful transfer of power.  Armed soldiers everywhere, hardly any civilians around, in a locked-down, fortified city being patrolled by armed members of the military.  It appears the nation has been overthrown from within.  Meanwhile, the Iranians are licking their chops that they are going to see the reentry of the United States into the flawed, pro-Iranian JCPOA deal.  This will occur almost immediately.
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3527: 05, 08, 15, 21, 37, and Mega 27.  Out of 159,315 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA number for a prize of $53,831.  The winning ticket was sold at Ironwood Liquor in Moreno Valley, CA 92557.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #813: 40, 53, 60, 68, 69, and Powerball 22.  Out of 537,669 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had ALL SIX NUMBERS for a prize of $730,000,000.  The winning ticket was sold in Maryland.  Next, the next highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball number for a prize of $599,639 apiece.  The two winning tickets were sold at (1) 7/11 in Redlands, CA 92373 and (2) Déjà Vu Liquor in Woodland Hills, CA 91364.  Tomorrow night, the Mega Millions jackpot for Draw #1626 is in the vicinity of $970 million.  Good luck, folks.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fresh on the heels of moving up as both a live act and a seller of records, UFO delivered another big seller, their second LIVE album, “Strangers in the Night,” on January 02, 1979.  The lineup featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Michael Schenker (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Paul Raymond (keyboards/rhythm guitar) but this would be the final album featuring guitarist Schenker until he returned in the mid-1990s.  A two-LP album at the time, this album featured all the best cuts by a red-hot band.  We hope you will seek this one out- especially in its expanded form with multiple discs- because it is a classic, an amazing classic.  We hope you will seek this one out by visiting your favorite site for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

344. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 09, 2020

BBB. 2010 Thursday: Following all the criminal releases by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, the U.S. military forbids anyone to use removable drives. Too much information has been spirited out of military and intelligence bases and headquarters that seem to make their way into the hands of Mr. Assange. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice is weighing legal charges against the founder of WikiLeaks- if they get their hands on him.

  59. 2015 Wednesday: The FBI says that the husband-and-wife shooters in San Bernardino, California, were ‘radicalized years earlier’ and that ‘no evidence exists of ties to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.’  Of course, this is the “James Comey-run FBI” which never sees ties between radical Islam and jihadists in the U.S.
  60. 2016 Friday: The Obama CIA concludes with ‘high confidence’ that Russia interfered in the 2016 Presidential Election to get Donald Trump elected.  Of course, this is little more than bulls**t engineered by CIA Director (and former member of the CPUSA) John Brennan and his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama.   President-elect Donald Trump brushes this bogus report off.
  61. 2017 Saturday: After more than three years of combat operations, Iraq announced that the fight against the Islamic State group was over and that Iraq’s security forces had driven the extremist scum from all of the territory it once held.  The search for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi continues.

  63. 2019 Monday: Democrats and their Fake News Media allies are rubbing their hands in glee today as today is the BIG REVEAL of the articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.  Oh, they are giddy, confidant of success, believing they can convince the GOP to toss the 45th president onto the dung heap of history… elsewhere, India’s lower house passes a bill forbidding citizenship to Muslims.  Sounds like they are listening to President Trump…oh, wait, he never said that.  No, he just wanted to forbid them entry to the U.S.
  64. 2020 Wednesday:  In the ongoing struggle with the Chi-Coms, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo continue pointing out the danger that communist China poses to the United States.  In the same vein, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ, points out that not only is “Pro-China Joe” Biden in bed with the Chi-Coms, so is his family.   Speaking of Arizona, the FBI raids a home in Maricopa County recovering computer hard drives and zip drives that may have been used in the 2020 Presidential Election fraud.  Meanwhile, the Nevada Supreme Court rejects the Trump campaign’s latest challenge to the fraudulent election results certified by the state.
  65. 2020 Wednesday A: Now that many believe “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the ‘president-elect,’ illegal alien caravans are forming in Central America, preparing to head north to storm the U.S.-Mexico border into the U.S.  Vice President Biden has already promised to legalize millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of the country so why wouldn’t millions more seek to flood into the country?   Speaking of mayhem, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs are battling the streets in Portland, Oregon, in the broad light of day.  No more coming out at night like the vermin they are.  What is happening to the country?  Meanwhile, the Federal Trade Commission and 46 U.S. states join in an anti-trust lawsuit launched against Chi-Com-backed Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, California Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell, a noted POS, now is upset that people are scrutinizing him for having had an ongoing affair with a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang-Feng, blasting the Trump administration for releasing the salacious dirt on this moron.  We would love to see Swalwell end up doing time in a federal prison and to think this imbecile sought the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, says, ‘Swalwell is compromised.’  Funny how people like Swalwell who accused President Trump of all kinds of crimes is the criminal himself…
  66. 2020 Wednesday B: Following a big Republican gathering in the Garden State featuring Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, forbids the congressman from visiting his state again.  Elsewhere, Newsmax and Greg Kelly surpasses Martha MacCallum’s show on Fox News Channel for the first time.  People want the truth, like what we do here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM and not distorted BS that FNC now seems to spew around the clock.  It’s their loss and Newsmax’ gain.
  67. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 68,498,598 confirmed cases, UP by 518,604 cases, 1,562,886 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,517 deaths, and 44,171,660 confirmed recoveries, UP by 444,548 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 15,405,920 confirmed cases, UP by 200,243 new cases, 291,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,679 new deaths, and 7,142,384 confirmed recoveries, UP by 51,590 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: 350,271 confirmed cases, 2,934 confirmed deaths, and 331,861 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 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: 1,425,432 confirmed cases, 20,243 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,056 confirmed cases, 266 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: 194,788 confirmed cases, 3,102 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-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, Alaska: 38,707 confirmed number of cases, 149 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.
  69. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,068.81, DOWN 105.57 points (-0.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,338.95, DOWN 243.82 points (-1.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,672.82, DOWN 29.43 points (-0.79%).  The price of GOLD is $1,842.90 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $24.05 per troy ounce, +0.25 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,010.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.83%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, -0.0145 (-0.41%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,290.60 per troy oz, -37.30 (-1.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $45.71 per barrel, +0.19 (+0.42%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.87.
  70. 2020 Wednesday F: We learn today that Texas is not alone in suing other states where rampant voter fraud occurred.  Joining the Lone Star State are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia, along with the Trump administration.  If the corruption that occurred in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Nevada is allowed to stand, that corruption will infect the rest of the states in the Union which is why this case is going before the U.S. Supreme Court as do all interstate lawsuits.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passes a $740 billion defense bill opposed by President Trump because it fails to address the national security issues Facebook, Twitter, and other social media firms pose to the nation.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration wants to send $600 relief checks to all Americans while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the COVID-19 relief bill must drop (1) aid to the states and (2) COVID-19, aka Chi-Com Bat Virus liability measures Democrats want to tack onto it so if someone dines in a restaurant and gets the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the infected person can sue the business owner.   Finally, the Trump administrations renames two military bases for the U.S. Space Force.  The two bases- Patrick Air Force Base and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station will be renamed- respectively- Patrick Space Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
  71. 2020 Wednesday G: Federal prosecutors in Delaware are investigating Hunter Biden on charges of tax fraud and other monetary and financial crimes which many now believe disqualifies his father, the so-called ‘president-elect’ because not only is he and his son in bed with Beijing, so is everyone else (or so we believe) in the Biden Family and in his inner circle.  The ‘Hunter Biden laptop’ alone should be enough to send son, Hunter, to the federal slammer.
  72. 2020 Wednesday H: Michigan state Representative Cynthia Johnson threatens ALL Trump supporters AND defenders of the U.S. Constitution with violence, calling ‘on soldiers in whatever army the Democrats possess’ (i.e., Antifa and Black Lives Matter human trash) ‘to commit violence on their enemies.’  What is it about these female Democrats that think they can bully and threaten other, law-abiding citizens?  Bring it on there, congresswoman, you might be surprised at what comes YOUR way.
  73. 2020 Wednesday I:  Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Drawing #3515 with a $13 million jackpot up for grabs: 05, 08, 13, 20, 39, and Mega 01.  Out of 84,659 winning tickets, two people had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $15,418 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #801 with a BIG JACKPOT of $262 million up for grabs: 11, 14, 31, 47, 48, and Power 04.  Out of 83,939 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $31,286 apiece.                                                             
  74. 2020 Wednesday J:  As you know, every day, we await news as to what the Chi-Coms and their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, and of course, the Democratic Party flunkies that do Beijing’s bidding…

  62. 2020 Friday C: Georgia Governor Brian Kemp orders a signature envelope recount to determine if fraud occurred in his state on November 3.  After seeing ample evidence of the voter fraud that occurred in State Farm Arena in Atlanta on the night of November 3-4, the entire election should be tossed and done over- in person, with voter ID- because the original election was totally corrupt.  If people are not charged and punished for the crimes they committed against the voters of the Peach State and sent to prison, in 2022 Governor Kemp, the Democrats will come for YOU.  Moron.
  63. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 65,760,928 confirmed cases, +649,062, 1,515,990, confirmed deaths, +11,687, and 42,248,499 confirmed recoveries, +396,600.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 14,463,929 confirmed cases, up 238,540 from yesterday’s reporting, 281,798 confirmed deaths, UP 2,874, and 6,878,662 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,323. 
  64. 2020 Friday E: 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: 1,293,887 confirmed cases, 19,586 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 18,605 confirmed cases, 256 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 180,125 confirmed cases, 3,040 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Dakota: currently, they have 81,949 confirmed cases, 989 confirmed deaths, and 75,653 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 342,101 confirmed cases, 2,896 confirmed deaths, and 327,162 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of Israel, Jerusalem has contracted with Moderna for three-times the original amount of Chi-Vi vaccines to be delivered to them.  Let’s look at one other country: Canada- currently, they have 402,569 confirmed cases, 12,496 confirmed deaths, and 320,096 confirmed recoveries.  Seeing as how the Canucks declared WAR on the USA via their bogus Dominion Voting Systems, we do NOT wish them well. 
  65. 2020 Friday F: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,218.16, UP 248.74 points (+0.83%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,464.63, UP 87.05 points (+0.70%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,699.12, UP 32.40 points (+0.88%).  Price of GOLD: $1,842.00 per troy oz., +2.00 (+0.11%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.32 per troy oz., +0.067 (+0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,070.20 per troy oz., -2.60 (-0.24%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,357.80 per troy oz., +39.90 (+1.72%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.53 per #, +0.0045 (+0.13%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.09, -0.17 (-0.37%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.88 Afghan Afghani.  In other economic news, last month, the U.S. added 245,000 new jobs, below expectations.  Unemployment dropped to 6.7-percent, still high, but given the fact that we are in a war with the Chi-Coms, the Canucks, the Iranians, the Russians, and the dimwits in the Democratic Party, it’s NOT so bad.
  66. 2020 Friday G: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1613 with a jackpot of $264 million up for grabs.  Here are tonight’s numbers: 03, 19, 24, 44, 50, and Mega 08.  Out of 100,494 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,863.
  67. 2020 Friday H: A federal court of appeals rules in favor of the Trump administration redeploying Defense Department funds into erecting the southern border wall that separates civilization from the uncivilized.   Another judge rules against the Trump administration’s termination of DACA by ordering it restored.  This is the program the Obama administration sold as a ‘humane act’ because it provided children brought to this country by their illegal alien parents with an avenue towards legality and eventual citizenship.
  68. 2020 Friday I: As you know, we keep a close eye on the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges here in the U.S.  Talk about a Fifth Column!  The Democrats fit that bill to a tee, thanks to their constant pushing of socialism, socialism, and more socialism.  Stick around to discover what they’ve done today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Say what you will about aged rockers- rock and roll either makes you a long-lived legend a la Mick Jones- or it takes you out in a blaze of glory at age 27 like Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, Janis Joplin, Alan Wilson, or some slightly older guys like Keith Moon and the like.  Foreigner’s current lineup, much younger than legendary axe man Jones delivers a red-hot set of fiery renditions of tunes that led to the sales of 80 million and still counting albums.  I mean, how many bands still are able to continue generating a positive cash flow yet that’s what these guys do.  Fans love the album like we do which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and add it to your growing collection.  Lou Gramm- who?  Please seek out “The Greatest Hits of Foreigner- Live in Concert,” a superb album that came out on December 22, 2018- you will be glad you did.

When the Russians strike, the units north of the city will be the first to feel the explosive power the Reds have brought to bear.

Coincidence?
  63. 2019 Friday: Marie Yovanovitch- former ambassador to the Ukraine- testified before Congressman Adam Schiff’s House Intel Committee’s ‘impeachment inquiry.’  She like George Kent and William Taylor who testified on Wednesday could not name a single impeachable offense committed by President Donald J. Trump.  All she could do was to snivel and whine about being recalled from her position because of her inferior performance.  She behaved exactly as Dr. Christine Blasey Ford[vii] did during the Brett Kavanaugh[viii] U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings the previous year, acting like a frightened little girl, speaking in hushed tones and acting every part the bitch.

  66. 2020 Sunday B: We learn today that a charity to defeat cancer begun by “Pro-China Joe” and Dr. Jill Biden back in 2017 raked in millions of dollars but extraordinarily little made its way into the coffers of cancer researchers.  The bogus ‘charity’ received $4,809,619 in contributions, paid out $3,070,301 on salaries, $2,996,404 in functional expenses, and a salary of $429,850 per year to ‘charity’ President Gregory Simon.  Wow.  How do WE set up a similar ‘charity?’  This is worse than the Clinton Foundation.             
  67. 2020 Sunday C: SpaceX launches its first full-crew capsule into space late this afternoon to rendezvous with the International Space station in 27 hours.  Three American and one Japanese astronaut will spend the next six months there.  All precautions were taken to prevent the Chinese Virus from making it up into space.   Speaking of the Chi-Vi, here are the statistics:
  68. 2020 Sunday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -so-called Pelosi Pox the aka ‘Go to Chinatown and hug a Chinaman’ (a moronic act of virtue-signaling) disease:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 54,296,615 confirmed cases, +508,249, 1,315,881, confirmed deaths, +7,156, and 34,867,243 confirmed recoveries, +207,063.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 11,116,640 confirmed cases, up 154,950 from yesterday’s reporting, 249,730 confirmed deaths, UP 897, and 5,946,496 confirmed recoveries, UP 20,495.  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: 1,028,490 confirmed cases, 18,259 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,619 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, 12,083 confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 133,612 confirmed cases, 2,638 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Minnesota- currently, they have 223,637 confirmed cases, 2,961 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries- why don’t you report the statistics?  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 323,741 confirmed cases, 2,732 confirmed deaths, and 313,380 confirmed recoveries.  Time to hold the Chi-Coms accountable for their perfidy in this matter, for sending the Xi Jinping bat flu around the globe.   Elsewhere, Oregon Governor Kate Brown threatens to send Oregonians to prison if they have more than six guests for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  F**k her.
  69. 2020 Sunday E: An event that occurred this past Friday was reported today: New York Times columnist David Brooks- in scathing comments about the corrupt Democratic Party said that ‘Democrats need to get over the idea that they are the majority party of the future.’  We concur.  Everyone is going to begin working AGAINST the Democrats from within.  Several of our authors are going to register as Democrats so they can begin working up from the lower echelons.  Start with the school boards, the city council seats, county supervisorial seats, as well as insinuating people into education who are registered Democrats but who are conservative in outlook.  Folks, VIVA L’ RESISTANCE!  Fight against “Chi-Com Joe” Biden and his masters in Beijing.  In order to beat these Democratic scumbags, we must employ their tactics against them, only worse, a la what the Columbians did to defeat and destroy Pablo Escobar.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On October 13, 1989, Lou Gramm returned with his second album, “Long Hard Look,” an album that did not sell as well as his debut and which had more musicians assisting him that the earlier album.  The year 1989 was a time of change as we were heading out of the New Wave bands on the late 1970s and the ‘80s into a time when not too far away, Grunge was going to come exploding out of the Pacific Northwest which would change music for the foreseeable future.  Still, the vocalist never fails to please his listeners and it would cement the idea in his head that time to bolt Foreigner and Mick Jones’ control of the musical process could and should be done.  Ah, well, it is what it is in the world of music.  Seek the album out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[iv] And they claim that Republicans NEVER do anything for the environment.

[v] Whether we like it or not, Hong Kong is part of the People’s Republic of China and within their jurisdiction.

[vi] We offered the music of this famed West Coast band- the Grass Roots- beginning on Thursday, 06-February-2014 through Saturday, 22-February-2014.  We hope you will seek their music out by visiting whatever site you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.

[vii] When the phony skank sat before the U.S. Senate’s Judiciary Committee, she acted like a timid little girl, wailing and moaning about a young Brett Kavanaugh did to her.  Although she could not name dates, places, or most of the people present and even though her closest friend said she knew nothing about what Dr. Ford was saying, Dr. Ford still tried to destroy now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s chances of making the court all because this is what Democrats do.  What a shame.  Same goes for former Ambassador Yovanovitch, presidents are in charge of U.S. foreign policy and no one else. They appoint many ambassadors as well as special ones to represent them in a variety of circumstances.  A president can remove or recall an ambassador at any time as ambassadors are charged with carrying out the president’s foreign policies and not creating their own.  It is interesting to note that when Barack Obama won the 2008 Presidential Election, he immediately made it known that upon assuming office all Bush-appointed ambassadors were out of their jobs.  It is how and as it should be,.

[viii] You can begin reading our coverage on the unfair actions the Democrats used against Kavanaugh beginning with Chef Tiresias’ post of Wednesday, July 11, 2018.

  48. 2014 Wednesday: The NFL continues to be dogged by off-field headlines in which various players are misbehaving, beating up girlfriends, getting arrested to substance abuse, and the like.   Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Petersen is in trouble for whooping one of his kids to the point that he had noticeable bruises.  Say it ain’t so.
  49. 2015 Thursday: New York Attorney-General Eric Schneiderman issues a subpoena to Exxon Mobil to see the oil giant’s financial records and accuses them of lying about the danger ‘fossil fuels pose to the climate crisis.’  What a load of crap.  Meanwhile, an Obama administration refugee program designed to help illegal aliens kids enter the U.S. easier fails to admit a single child in 10 months.  Liberal, illegal alien-loving Democrats are shocked.    
  50. 2016 Saturday:  News reports arise that show that iHHillary Rodham Clinton- as U.S. secretary of state- routinely had her maid print out classified materials. Some say Marina Santos- Hillary’s Washington, D.C. maid- may hold the key to Mrs. Clinton’s missing emails.  Meanwhile, candidate Donald Trump says that massive early voting lines are proof of a ‘rigged system.’  Elsewhere, ISIS tells the citizens of Mosul, Iraq, that anyone caught trying to escape the doomed city will be executed.
  51. 2017 Sunday: A gunman armed with an assault rifle (all weapons are ‘assault weapons”) opened fire in a small South Texas church, killing more than two dozen worshippers; police later found the shooter, Devin Patrick Kelley, dead in his vehicle.  Two good guys with guns chased the POS murdering thug down and lit him up, having heard the massacre going on at their church.  The authorities, however, determined that the punk took his own life.     
  52. 2018 Monday: On the eve of the Mid-Term Elections tomorrow, President Donald J. Trump launches into Democrats and illegal aliens.  Democrats call his comments ‘cruel’ and ‘mean’ but he blasts MS-13 and the caravans swamping the southern border.  He’s trying to build a wall that will prohibit the never-ending flow of illegals that has been ongoing since George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama were president.
  53. 2019 Tuesday:  A federal appeals court rejects President Donald J. Trump’s efforts to combat New York State’s ongoing attempts to get ahold of his tax returns.   New York wants them because Trump’s former lawyer- the disgraced Michael Cohen- claims Trump used him to funnel ‘hush money’ to porn stars and hookers.   
  54. 2020 Thursday: Election Day plus Two- what are the Chi-Coms, their Democratic Party patsies, and their Brown-Shirted storm-trooper thugs up to today?  Well, the Democrats at the behest of their masters in Beijing are out there trying to steal elections in North Carolina, Nevada, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Michigan- among other states- so it is up to the American people to make sure the Democrats understand that if they get away with this blatant outright theft before our very eyes, there is going to be payback and it’s not going to be pretty.   RINO Republicans, take note: IF the Democrats can “Norm Coleman” President Donald J. Trump, they can “Norm Coleman” you, too.  The time to fight is now.  The time to take to the streets and show the Democrats that they will face civil unrest heretofore unseen by them and if necessary, to carry out acts of civil disobedience.  If Antifa and Black Lives Matter can do it, so can we.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra released their next studio album, “From Out of Nowhere” on November 01, 2019.  Jeff Lynne performs most of the instruments with Richard Tandy 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.
