  54. 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. 
  55. 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.
  56. 2021 Tuesday: This looks like it’s going to be a busy week what with the Joestapo going door to door to give people their ‘shots.’  F**k them.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On January 03, 2003, Blodwyn Pig released their next LIVE album and what a good one it was: “Blues Live.”  Joining the fiery guitarist were the legendary Jack Lancaster (horns, woodwinds, violins, and flutes), Andy Pyle (bass), and Clive Bunker (drums) and a later lineup of Mick Abrams (guitars and vocals), Mike Summerland (bass and vocals), Graham Walker (drums), and Dave Lennox (keyboards and vocals)..  There are 15 great tunes on this CD culled from two superb concerts, an album we encourage everyone to buy as Mr. Abrams is one of the all-time great guitarists.  He should be on the list of all-time greats such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Kim Simmonds, and Alvin Lee.  We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite site for the absolute best in music and will then add it to your ever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved albums.  Enjoy.

Trump from today until July 15, 2019.  A so-called Republican, he would become the 27th U.S. secretary of defense on July 23 and would serve in this position until President Trump fired his worthless, traitorous butt on November 09, 2020.

  74. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Kung Flu stats for the world today: 9,237,691 confirmed cases, 476,911 confirmed deaths, and 4,613,425 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,425,361 confirmed cases, 123,726 confirmed deaths, and 746,563 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, the NOT-so-Golden State first: 190,222 confirmed cases, 5,632 confirmed deaths, and as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 819 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 673 confirmed recoveries.  Lastly, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,826 confirmed cases, 1,293 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  For the fun of it, let’s look at the numbers for Michigan: 68,555 confirmed cases, 6,114 confirmed deaths, but sadly, Napoleonic Governor Gretchen Whitmer WON’T release the number of confirmed recoveries.
  75. 2020 Wednesday B: Sadly, there was a bad day on Wall Street.  Here are the numbers for the DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,445.94, DOWN 710.16 points (2.73%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 9,907.17, DOWN 222.20 points (2.19%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,050.33, DOWN 80.96 points (2.59%).  Finally, President Donald J. Trump announces he will sign an executive order that will forbid the desecration of federal monuments or memorials with the possibility of 10 years in federal prison.  We have seen uncontrolled mobs, filled with communists, and funded by the Chinese Communist Party (or so we believe) that the minute a horrible crime like the slaying of George Floyd occurs, take to the streets across the nation destroying everything in their path as though they were reincarnations of Mao Zedong’s Red Guards.  Sign it, Mr. President, sign it, and let’s see this scum go to PRISON for good.
  76. 2021 Thursday: The Joe Biden regime continues to stumble along, looking for white supremacists wherever they can find them even though none exist and IF they did exist, they would be among the Democrats as that is who fleshed out the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan.  Still, all components of the Executive and Legislative branches continue beating the drums seeking them out wherever they can find them so they can punish them.  How soon before drooling Joe Biden requests the Chi-Coms send him some troops so he can maintain order in the streets?

  54. 2019 Saturday: On today’s date, Slovakia elects its first female head of state, Zuzana Caputova.  Congratulations!   Meanwhile, Pope Francis arrives in Rabat, Morocco, his first ever pontifical visit to the Maghreb region of North Africa.  The pope and King Mohammed VI call for the protection of Jerusalem’s holy sites as they belong to multitudes of people and to the three primary monotheistic religions.  We agree.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump orders the U.S. State Department to cease aid to El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala unless they halt the flow of their citizens trying to invade the southern United States.
  55. 2020 Monday: The Wuhan Virus continues causing problems around the planet as cases near 800,000 and deaths approach 39,000.  China continues claiming they are NOT responsible for this evil they have foisted upon the world and many believe they colluded with the Democratic Party to launch yet another attempt to remove from office or take down altogether President Donald J. Trump.  Not going to happen, folks.   In New York City, the U.S. hospital ship Comfort arrives in New York City to care for patients that Mayor Bill Di Blasio will never send to it.  As for the Summer 2020 Olympics, postponed a week prior to later in the year are now postponed to June 23, 2021.
  56. 2021 Tuesday: Stick around…

  50. 2017 Wednesday: Republican lawmakers launch their first bid- under the incoming Trump administration to repeal the Affordable Care Act.   President-elect Donald J.

Trump.
  53. 2020 Saturday: Following the droning of Iranian General Qassim Soleimani, Democrats are screaming and crying of dreadful things to come and warning that President Trump is usurping powers not meant for the president but for Congress.  Oh, well.

Trump will be dead in a few days.  Lovely people, lovely, time to nuke them.   Anyhow, Israel slaps back at the Iranians for saying their country is trying to engineer a way by which the Trump administration will go to war with the jihadist Islamic republic. 
  55. 2021 Monday A: Pope Francis (another lovely human being) criticizes those who have gone on holiday so as to escape the authoritarian COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions imposed on them by fascist leaders.  Pope Francis- please, STFU.  Next, Mexican President Lopez Obrador offers WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange asylum following a British judge declaring he will NOT be extradited to the United States to face trial.  President Trump- pardon this man.  Elsewhere, following the Tel-Cos cuts to the BIG THREE Chi-Com telecommunications companies- China Mobile Ltd., China Telecom Corp., and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd., Chi-Com oil majors may undergo delisting on the NYSE.  About time the communist country faced punishment for their innumerable crimes.
  56. 2021 Monday B: Things in Georgia are getting crazy what with the state government doing everything to defy President Trump in his quest for redress over the corrupt and fraudulent election on November 3.  A phone call between the 45th president and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is leaked by the secretary himself in an effort to make the president look bad.  While Secretary Raffensperger continues calling it the ‘most secure election in history,’ anyone who watched the testimony before a Georgia senate subcommittee this past week on OAN understands that it was anything but.  The lieutenant governor of the Peach State- Geoff Duncan- leapt onto Trump’s back by accusing President Trump of trying to steal the election.  This led California Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu- another tool of the Chi-Coms- to send a referral to the FBI to prosecute the president for trying to engineer election fraud.  When the bodies begin dropping, Congressman, you will have only yourself to blame, you little c***sucker.   
  57. 2021 Monday C: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden says he will replace the inaugural parade with a short walk to the White House.  Meanwhile, to the dismay of all, Arkansas GOP Senator Tom Cotton says, ‘contesting the election is beyond the powers of Congress.’  Looks like “Cocaine Mitch” got to you, senator.  Sad to see you cross over to the DARK SIDE.  Elsewhere, another RINO Senator Marco Rubio says that ‘both Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock are unqualified to serve in the U.S. Senate.’  We agree.  However, recent polls show both Democrats with a 51-47 percent lead over both Republicans.  C’est la vie.
  58. 2021 Monday D: A Harvard space expert says, ‘the Earth has been visited, monitored by alien life.’  We wish some of that alien life would show up right about now and wipe out the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, the Russians, Venezuelans, Cubans, North Koreans, the Democratic Party, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the Fake News Media.  How about it?  Meanwhile, the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams says that ‘mitigation efforts are essential’ what with the arrival of the new strain of the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Meanwhile, the U.S. eyes half-doses of the Moderna vaccine in order to hasten the roll-out of the anti-viral.   Elsewhere, the IRS says the executors of the Prince estate cut its worth by 50-percent.  Not good.
  59. 2021 Monday E: Newsmax reports that after a pastor in an East Texas church found a thug hiding in his house of worship for whom law enforcement was searching, the reverend drew his gun on the man but was quickly disarmed by the POS who then shot him dead, wounded two others, and then stole the vehicle and sped away. 
  60. 2021 Monday F: Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins another term as speaker by a vote of 220 for her while 192 voted for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.  The aged speaker whose pendulous breasts droop down to her waist has the slimmest majority in history, a ‘majority’ of 10 seats.
  61. 2021 Monday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 85,555,275 confirmed cases, +570,221, 1,849,949, confirmed deaths, +8,827, and 48,058,025 confirmed recoveries, +280,467.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,933,546 confirmed cases, up 337,286 from yesterday’s reporting, 355,836 confirmed deaths, UP 2,527, and 9,351,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 127,459.
  62. 2021 Monday 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: 2,444,466 confirmed cases, 26,638 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 22,049 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 258,557 confirmed cases, 3,524 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Louisiana: currently, they have 322,881 confirmed cases, 7,585 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 445,845 confirmed cases, 3,435 confirmed deaths, and 390,287 confirmed recoveries.
  63. 2020 Monday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,223.89, DOWN 382.59 points (-1.25%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,698.45, DOWN 189.45 points (-1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,700.65, DOWN 55.42 points (-1.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,948.00 per troy oz., +1.40 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.42 per troy ounce, +0.051 (+0.19%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,083.70 per troy oz, +12.20 (+1.14%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.0095 (+0.27%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,391.20 per troy oz, -62.60 (-2.55%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.33 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.94.
  64. 2021 Monday J: Indiana announces it will host the entire NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.  Meanwhile, the Trump administration announces that a breakthrough between Qatar and other Arab Persian Gulf states has been reached in patching up their quarrel.  Elsewhere, USAF personnel in Germany begin receiving their vaccinations for the Chi-Vi.  Finally, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, labels NBC’s Chuck Todd’s barrage on him while the senator was appearing on his Sunday show as highly ‘unprofessional’ which it was.
  65. 2021 Monday K: Mayor Muriel Bowser, the horrible woman who runs Washington, D.C., called out the National Guard to be prepared for ‘trouble’ when hundreds of thousands and possibly a million or more Trump supporters arrive in the nation’s capital on Wednesday.  She could care less that her beloved Antifa and Black Lives Matter mobs riot in the streets, accosting anyone they suspect of being a Trump supporter in the streets.  Mobs such as what we just mentioned are what keeps Chief Justice John Roberts of the United States Supreme Court trembling in his bed at night.  Meanwhile, President Trump held a massive rally in Georgia today in support of Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue.  Elsewhere, outgoing Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos urges Congress to reject the policies of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his consort, Kooky Kamala Harris, should these two losers become president and vice-president.   
  66. 2021 Monday L: The Pentagon says the USS aircraft carrier Nimitz and her accompanying flotilla will remain on station in the Persian Gulf following all of the threats against President Donald J. Trump, as well as Trump administration officials, spilling out of the foul mouths of the Iranian leadership.  We hope to see them nuked before much longer.  Meanwhile, the CIA’s new recruitment website seeks to diversify the agency.  Should have been done decades ago…speaking of the Central Intelligence Agency, a private cybersecurity company, FireEye, says the Russian cyberattack on numerous targets in the United States occurred within the United States.  Not good.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘communist China and North Korea’ are President Trump’s ‘unfinished business.’ 
  67. 2021 Monday M: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s first major act picking up the gavel again is to force ALL House members to use BS gender neutral terms so as NOT to hurt anyone’s feelings.  Wow.  Really important there, almost makes one long for getting nuked by the Chi-Coms to stop stupidity such as this.  The Reverend Franklin Graham blasts “Mumbles” Pelosi for doing this.  Meanwhile, the state of Georgia in a big show says, ‘it’s going to investigate charges of voter fraud and suppression in the two run-off races taking place TOMORROW.’  Amazing.   Elsewhere, the United States Marine Corps begins preparing for conflict with the Chi-Coms by conducting island warfare exercises.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Peter Wolf returned to the studio and put together a rock-solid album that won acclamation from the music industry and sold quite a few copies, too: “Midnight Souvenirs” (April 06, 2010).  As always the vocalist puts together a collection of amazing musicians such as guitarists Duke Levine and Larry Campbell as well as a collection of other virtuoso players and vocalists.  As always, Wolf never fails to deliver the musical goods and when compared to the crap the younger generations try to force us to believe IS somehow music, the moment you hear this album, you will take your Maroon Five albums and toss them onto the backyard bonfire.  Please, seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  63. 2020 Tuesday G: The population of Hawaii declines for the fourth straight year in a row.  Elsewhere, Spain announces it is going to establish a list of those who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccines as a way of isolating them from society.  And there are those who scoff at the idea of the ‘Mark of the Beast.’  Speaking of the Chi-Vi vaccine, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden pledges a swifter roll-out of the Beijing Bat Flu vaccine as soon as he enters office.  Is he, too, considering a registry of those who say, “F**k the vaccine?”  In this world, we just don’t know.  Meanwhile, always-wrong Dr. Tony Fauci says, “I’ve never thought about running for office.”  Good.  Don’t.  Regarding Dr. Fauci- ever the ‘optimist,’ he says prepare for a worse January regarding the Kung Flu.  Yikes.
  64. 2020 Tuesday H: Jake Sullivan, “incoming national security adviser” under ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden, is whining that the Pentagon is NOT meeting with them.  Elsewhere, a lawsuit charges the Hawaiian Sweet Bread Company with not being ‘Hawaiian enough.’  Next, the cops involved in the Breonna Taylor case have now all been fired.  Meanwhile, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is on her backfoot due to the massive increase in shootings in the once lovely city including the recent death of a seven-year-old girl.  People- stop with the Defund the Police bull crap.  It’s stupid.
  65. 2020 Tuesday I: Here are tonight’s Mega Millions #1620 Drawing with a $376,000,000 jackpot up for grabs: 01, 31, 35, 48, 62, and Mega 19.  Out of 138,376 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $36,629.
  66. 2020 Tuesday J: Luke Letlow, incoming GOP congressman-elect from Louisiana dies at age 41, a victim of the Beijing Bat Bug.  He became ill last week, went to the hospital, became well enough to return home, then worsened and had to return to the hospital where he died.  Why didn’t they provide him with hydroxychloroquine?
  67. 2020 Tuesday K:  You know as well as we do that the Democratic stooges are fast at work terrifying the GOP into folding on Trump and the 2020 Electoral College confirmation coming up on January 6, 2021.  Their Chi-Com backers are urging them on so we encourage everyone to stick around to discover what the heck they’re up to…stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions Drawing…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Peter Wolf returned on May 14, 1996, with his next solo album, “Long Line,” and guess what: he set aside the pop sounds of his previous efforts and was back to rocking and rolling, much like the J. Geils Band from which, he sprang two decades earlier.  Amazing music by an amazing vocalist and showman.  Joining the legendary artist were Johnny A. (guitars/backing vocals), Tim Archibald (bass), Doug Dube (organ), Tom Belliveau (pedal steel guitar), David Stefanelli (drums and percussion) and quite a few others to provide the texturing Wolf desired.  This is a superb album by a gifted vocalist so we encourage everyone to rush out and buy it from wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock and roll music- you will be glad you did- we guarantee it.

  49. 2019 Friday: While enfeebled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues holding the articles of impeachment lodged against President Donald J. Trump but not carried over to the Senate as the law states they must, experts continue debating whether ‘Trump is actually impeached’ of he is not.  Pelosi says, ‘he is and will forever be’ but others say, ‘no, he’s not, not until the declining speaker carries them over to the upper chamber and presents them to the Senate majority leader.’   Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve claims that ‘Trump’s economic war with communist China has backfired.’  They don’t like the tariffs.

  51. 2020 Sunday A: The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and election investigators are running another audit of election signatures.  Speaking of fraudulent elections, President Donald J. Trump calls out the Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, Democrat, for resisting calls for an investigation into the rampant voter fraud and corruption that occurred across the state in the hours and days after Election Day November 3, 2020.  Meanwhile, in Rockford, Illinois, cops are on a manhunt after last night’s fatal shootings at the Don Carter Lanes bowling alley in which three people died and another three were wounded.   Elsewhere, after another thug fires into a crowd in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two people died and several others were injured.  Cops there are seeking the 37-year-old shooter.
  52. 2020 Sunday B: In Nashville, federal, state, and local cops are closing in on the perp behind the RV bomb explosion in downtown that damaged 41 buildings- a revised figure from the original 20- and searched the home of a suspect, a computer tech specialist named Anthony Quinn Warner. 
  53. 2020 Sunday C: We learned of yet another outrage committed by Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, Governor Gavin Newsom of California.  Californians voted to increase gas taxes two election cycles ago so the state’s crumbling roads systems could be repaired.  The promise to the voters was that the tax revenues would go directly to the road repairs but oh, no, with the stroke of a pen on an executive order, Gavin Newsom redirected the $5 billion the road improvement law raised into fighting GLOBAL WARMING as well as funding the defunct high-speed rail system (and we also think into CalPERS, the state’s penniless state employees retirement fund).  Anyone living in California MUST SIGN the recall petition.  This POS must go.
  54. 2020 Sunday D: On the healthcare front, we learn that 1.56 billion PPE masks will find their way into the Pacific and Indian Oceans this year because Asians could give a flying f**k about polluting the world’s oceans.  Meanwhile, as fears increase over the new strain of the Chi-Vi discovered in Great Britain, California health officials now are testing for the B1.1.7 strain of the Chi-Com Virus.  Speaking of this foul lab-engineered disease, a New York state healthcare network is under investigation for unauthorized distribution of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.   Elsewhere, Japan shuts down air travel other than for its citizens returning home over fears of the B1.1.7 Xi Jinping Bat Flu strain.   Finally, three European nations- Germany, Hungary, and Slovakia administer the first China Virus vaccinations in Europe to citizens over the age of 80.
  55. 2020 Sunday E: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 80,671,407 confirmed cases, +505,047, 1,762,630, confirmed deaths, +7,868, and 45,612,622 confirmed recoveries, +362,356.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 19,262,641 confirmed cases, up 227,422 from yesterday’s reporting, 336,458 confirmed deaths, UP 1,819, and 8,412,707 confirmed recoveries, UP 97,410.
  56. 2020 Sunday F: 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: 2,144,430 confirmed cases, 24,231 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,970 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 240,763 confirmed cases, 3,283 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Jersey- currently, they have 463,166 confirmed cases, 18,630 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 401,470 confirmed cases, 3,226 confirmed deaths, and 364,012 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of Israel, anti-Benjamin Netanyahu protesters are in the streets of the country demanding he step down from office.
  57. 2020 Sunday G: White House economic adviser Stephen Moore says that ‘tax cuts for businesses should be included in the COVID-19 relief bill,’ which would help all of them get back on their feet sooner as would the authoritarian governors allowing everyone to return to work instead of persecuting people who want to open their businesses or return to work.    Regarding the economy, U.S. retail sales have risen by 3-percent over the course of the holidays meaning big box stores and online businesses are cleaning up while smaller businesses are dying.
  58. 2020 Sunday H: Here are today’s NFL games: (5) Chicago Bears, 41 (8-7) @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 17 (1-14) Sunday 10:00 A.M.  (6) Atlanta Falcons, 14 (4-11) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 17 (14-1) 10:00 A.M.  (7) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (10-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 28 (12-3) 10:00 A.M.  (8) Cleveland Browns, 16 (10-5) @ New York Jets, 23 (2-13) 10:00 A.M.  (9) Cincinnati Bengals, 37 (4-10-1) @ Houston Texans, 31 (4-11) 10:00 A.M.  (10) New York Giants, 13 (5-10) @ Baltimore Ravens, 27 (10-5) 10:00 A.M.  (11) Denver Broncos, 16 (5-10) @ Los Angeles Chargers, 19 (6-9) 1:05 P.M.  (12) Carolina Panthers, 20 (5-10) @ Washington Redskins, 13 (6-9) 1:05 P.M.

  59. 2020 Sunday I:  Wow, another week comes to an end and the Chi-Coms and their allies in Iran (s-hole country), Russia (another s-hole country), Canada (a real s-hole country), and Cuba, Venezuela, and other s-hole countries NEVER sleep nor do their Democratic Party allies in the U.S.  We will keep you posted- you stick around and find out WTF they’re doing…

S. 1942 Thursday: The Nazis murder 16,000 Jews at Pinsk in the Soviet Union during World War II. Meanwhile, Branch Rickey becomes the general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Finally, on the seventh day of the Battle of El Alamein in North Africa, Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery commits more British troops to the assault on the Axis defenses. On the Eastern Front, German General Friedrich Paulus becomes concerned about his flanks and the bulges of Soviet troops clinging to bridgeheads north and south of the city where Italians, Hungarians, and Romanians guard his flanks. Supplies are tenuous into Stalingrad for both sides. German losses so far approached 8,000 dead and 31,000 wounded while the Soviets thus far had lost 80,000 killed, wounded, captured, or through desertions. Even Gen. Vasily Chuikov had seen his subordinates in charge of armor, artillery, and engineering desert their posts.

  55. 2020 Thursday: Both President Donald J.

  56. 2020 Thursday A: Department of Homeland Security officials warn that ‘IF Joe Biden wins on Election Day, there will be a massive invasion across the southern border.’  Speaking of border issues, Twitter (break these SOBS up) suspends the account of the U.S. border chief Mark Morgan for celebrating the success of the wall between the United States and Mexico for bringing the numbers of illegals attempting to sneak across the border to almost nil.  Time to break Twitter up.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court allows extensions for the arrival of ballots in Pennsylvania and North Carolina.  In the same vein, the Girl Scouts of America delete a tweet celebrating the successful nomination and placement onto the U.S. Supreme Court of Amy Coney Barrett because of leftist backlash.  Finally, Dr. Tony Fauci and Goldman Sachs demand a national mask mandate as a means of stopping the Chi-Com Virus.
  57. 2020 Thursday B: In France, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again as an Islamist thug murders three women- including the beheading of one- at the Basilica of Notre Dame in Nice- whereas another one attempting to cause mayhem gets shot by the cops. Elsewhere on the foreign affairs front, the White House moves ahead with the sale of 50 F-35 jets to the United Arab Emirates.
  58. 2020 Thursday C: Glenn Greenwald, co-founder of the Intercept, posts his resignation letter on Twitter today.  Since the Intercept has joined in the crowd that is doing everything possible to censor any stories connected to Hunter Biden’s laptop or to his dad’s crooked dealings in Chi-Com land, the Ukraine, and wherever else President Barack Obama had sent him, he felt he could no longer work there.  What a shame.  Go to Newsmax.  Speaking of the Biden Family story, Ronna McDaniel, chairperson of the Republican National Committee, says ‘censorship of this story is a step closer to socialism.’  We can attest to that because some unseen entity out there has slashed our numbers to almost ZERO.   Elsewhere, UBS poll shows investors favor President Donald J. Trump over “Pro-China Joe” Biden by 52-48 percent.  No kidding!  Meanwhile, we learn that the little closet pink cupcake Jack Dorsey of Twitter has censored President Donald J. Trump 65 times (at least) and “Pro-China Joe” Biden ZERO times.  Again, it’s time to break up Twitter, Google/Alphabet, and Facebook.  Deport Sundar Pichai and his family back to Bangladesh.
  59. 2020 Thursday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 44,708,172 confirmed cases, +396,498, 1,177,077, confirmed deaths, +5,791, and 30,130,418 confirmed recoveries, +240,476.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,026,274 confirmed cases, UP 87,139 from yesterday’s reporting, 232,008 confirmed deaths, UP 1,151, and 5,512,841 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,204.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 313,114 confirmed cases, 2,508 confirmed deaths, and 299,439 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Thursday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 924,336 confirmed cases, 17,554 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,975 confirmed cases, 215 confirmed deaths, and 11,605 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 110,193 confirmed cases, 2,458 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Maryland- currently, they have 143,875 confirmed cases, 4,127 confirmed deaths, and 8,144 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Larry Hogan for your honesty.
  61. 2020 Thursday F: We had a up-and-down day in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,659.11, UP 139.16 points (+0.52%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,185.59, UP 180.72 points (+1.64%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,310.11, UP 39.08 points (+1.19%).  Price of GOLD: $1,866.20 per troy oz., -1.80 (-0.10%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.30 per troy oz., -0.006 (-0.26%).  Price of PLATINUM: $850.30 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.09%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,198.50 per troy oz., -52.10 (-2.31%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.06 per #, +0.002 (+0.07%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $36.01, -0.16 (-0.44%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.71 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.35 Taiwanese dollars.
  62. 2020 Thursday G: Breaking News- Greg Kelly on Newsmax reports that the U.S. Department of Justice has been investigating Hunter Biden since December 2019.  One of the things being investigating are possible money-laundering charges.  One might think word of this would have arisen while the House was running the impeachment sham against President Donald J. Trump.  Shame.  
  63. 2020 Thursday H: Tonight’s Thursday Night Football Game (1) Atlanta Falcons, 25 (2-6) @ Carolina Panthers, 17 (3-5).
  64. 2020 Thursday I: In other news, the Trump administration reverses an Obama era policy that prevented Americans born in Jerusalem from listing either the city or the nation of Israel on their passports. The John Roberts Supreme Court helped Obama accomplish this by saying its standing interfered with the president’s right to set foreign policy.  What? Screw Obama, the man was an anti-Semite as are many Democrats.  Elsewhere, although historically still high, new jobless claims dropped to 751,000, the lowest since March.  Numbers are down by 40,000 across 30 states with California, Florida, and Texas showing the biggest gains in the era of COVID-19.  Sadly, IHOP says it’s going to close 100 restaurants across the country thanks to the ongoing Chi-Vi pandemic. 
  65. 2020 Thursday J: Friends, we invite everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms, their Democratic Party gofers and their Fake News allies are up to today- you will want to know, believe us.

  46. 2003 Tuesday: John Allen Muhammad pleaded not guilty to murder as the first trial in the deadly Washington-area sniper rampage got under way in Virginia Beach.  Muhammad was later convicted of killing Dean Harold Meyers and executed in 2009.

  51. 2015 Wednesday: President Barack Hussein Obama announces that he is halting the withdrawal of thousands of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and will instead maintain their numbers in that crap-hole country of the world until the end of his term in January 2017.  Meanwhile, as Iranian-backed Palestinian violence continues across Israel, the government announces that it will deploy thousands of troops and police officers to quell the uprisings.  Violence continues ginning up following Israeli cops shooting a Palestinian punk with a knife who tried to attack officers and then tried to flee.  This event occurred at the Damascus Gate in East Jerusalem, a place the Palestinians claim as theirs.  Nope.  Belongs to Israel.
  52. 2016 Friday:  As candidate Donald J. Trump continues rebuffing his numerous female accusers, Democratic Party nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton quietly begins downgrading her campaign events schedule due to fatigue and poor health; besides, she thinks she has it in the bag.  This belief will be her undoing.  Meanwhile, President Barack Hussein Obama removes restrictions on Cuban cigars and rum. 
  53. 2017 Saturday: The death toll from wildfires burning in Northern California reached 40; they were the deadliest group of simultaneous blazes in the state’s storied history.  Meanwhile, in the peaceful country of Somalia (yeah, right), a truck bombing in the nation’s capital killed more than 500 people in one of the deadliest attacks in years; officials blamed the attack on the Islamist extremist group al-Shabab and said it was meant to target Mogadishu’s international airport, but the bomb detonated in a crowded street after soldiers opened fire.  One must love to the so-called “religion of peace,” of which, Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is a member.
  54. 2018 Sunday: Sears and Roebuck announces it has filed for bankruptcy.  Meanwhile, following Hurricane Michael’s blitz on Florida, at least 30-35 people are missing and more than 250,000 customers are without power.   Finally, Lindsey Buckingham, kicked off the latest Fleetwood Mac[v] tour, announces he is going to sue his ex-band mates.
  55. 2019 Monday: After dealing with initial Kurdish resistance, Turkish troops steamroll across the frontier into Syria thereby to establish a buffer zone between their country and the Syrian civil war.  Various U.S. military and elected officials blast President Trump for having pulled U.S. troops back, prophesying that ‘all hell is going to break loose and that the United States has abandoned its allies.’  None of this proves to be true.  Elsewhere, in the impeachment probe, a blubbering former ambassador to the Ukraine- Marie Yovanovitch- says Fiona Hill, another Obama holdover and Russian expert, said the president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani who is investigating wrongdoing by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine- is a ‘hand grenade.’  Dems did their best to paint Giuliani as some sort of malignant entity messing up years of U.S. diplomacy in the region but like the rest of their BS, there is nothing to see here.  Wah, wah, wah!
  56. 2020 Wednesday: Much to the frustration of President Donald J. Trump, Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr says the unmasking probe found NO evidence of wrongdoing in the Obama White House.  Later, when asked by Newsmax’ Greg Kelly as to what the future of AG Barr would be in a second term, the president responds ‘NO comment’ but expresses his displeasure.   Moving on, Russia rules out any nuke deal until AFTER the 2020 U.S. elections.  Elsewhere, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pushes Saudi Arabia to normalize relations with Israel.   Speaking of Secretary Pompeo, he says the U.S. is defending 12 Hong Kongese detained by the Chi-Coms.
  57. 2020 Wednesday A: A judge in Virginia orders more time for voter registration in that state. Regarding the election, a Pennsylvania county reports 29,000 mail-in ballots sent to the wrong people.  Instills loads of confidence in one, doesn’t it?  Elsewhere, we learn today that Hunter Biden introduced his father, then the sitting Vice President Joe Biden to Ukrainian energy officials.  This would set up a massive self-enrichment scheme for the Biden Family.   Meanwhile, Eli Lilly becomes the second pharmaceutical maker to temporarily halt COVID-19 vaccine studies after a test subject develops an unknown illness.   Speaking of the Chi-Vi, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer blasting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s failure to negotiate a successful Wuhan Virus relief bill continues gathering steam as millions of Americans now see that she has NO desire to pass any sort of relief for millions of struggling Americans until AFTER the Election.  Impeach and remove this horrible woman.
  58. 2020 Wednesday B: Tomorrow, dueling town hall ‘debates’ will occur as President Donald J. Trump holds one at the exact same time that his challenger, “Pro-China Joe” Biden holds another.   Moving on, today is the third day of confirmation hearings for nominee Amy Coney Barrett and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX, exposes the Dems over their claims of ‘GOP court packing’ by pointing out that it’s NOT court packing, it’s the lawful filling of vacancies.  He points out that should the Democrats win, they will engage in court packing by adding another 4-7 additional justices, thus making the court forever a left-wing ally in whatever’s to come.   Meanwhile, Charlie Cook of the Cook Report says that ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden now has an insuperable lead over President Donald J. Trump of 17-percent and that his challenger now has a 91-percent chance of winning on November 3.  Wow!  It’s all over!  Still, just for the heck of it, we are all going to GO VOTE on Election Day…
  59. 2020 Wednesday C: THE STATE OF ILLINOIS IS NOT GOING TO FILE CHARGES AGAINST KYLE RITTENHOUSE, they young man who went to Kenosha, Wisconsin, to help his friends defend their homes and businesses.  Attacked by a mob of Antifa human filth, he defended himself and killed two of the bums in self-defense.  God bless you, Mr. Rittenhouse, God bless the state of Illinois for doing the right thing.
  60. 2020 Wednesday D: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 38,351,539 confirmed cases, UP by 345,418 cases, 1,089,186 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,311 deaths, and 26,540,006 confirmed recoveries, UP by 185,795 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,954,066 confirmed cases, UP by 10,036 new cases, 219,254 confirmed deaths, UP by 178 new deaths, and 5,063,122 confirmed recoveries, UP by 1,363 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: 298,500 confirmed cases, 2,098 confirmed deaths, and 251,711 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Wednesday E: 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: 865,211 confirmed cases, 16,717 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,736 confirmed cases, 183 confirmed deaths, and 10,883 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 99,486 confirmed cases, 2,311 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, Ohio: 173,665 confirmed number of cases, 5,033 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Mike DeWine for concealing the number of recoveries.
  62. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes, ALL DOWN because of the news that now ties “Pro-China Joe” Biden to the corrupt Ukrainian gas company Burisma through his crackhead son, Hunter: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,514.00, DOWN 165.81 points (-0.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,768.63, DOWN 95.17 points (-0.80%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,488.67, DOWN 23.26 points (-0.66%).  The price of GOLD is $1,902.10 per troy oz., -5.20 (-0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $24.27 per troy ounce, -0.125 (-0.51%).  The price of PLATINUM is $861.00 per troy oz, -2.40 (-0.28%) while the price of COPPER is $3.05 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.15%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,366.30 per troy oz, +22.00 (+0.94%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.20 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.71 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.32.
  63. 2020 Wednesday G:  As everyone knows, the day is young, we don’t know yet what the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party have done.  Stick around and we will find out together…which is what the New York Post today reported front page, the connection between crackhead Hunter Biden, Burisma, and his daddy, “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Hunter introduced his father to the number three Ukrainian at Burisma and there’s the story, folks, if this were anyone else, he or she would be driven from the race in shame and sent to prison… please see the story at https://nypost.com/2020/10/14/email-reveals-how-hunter-biden-introduced-ukrainian-biz-man-to-dad/
  64. 2020 Wednesday H: President Donald J. Trump has a MASSIVE RALLY in Des Moines, Iowa, tonight where he broaches the topics of the day, including the growing scandal about “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his dopehead son, Hunter.  Tune in to Newsmax for highlights…Meanwhile, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, pulls in a record $28 million for September in his battle to keep his seat.  Lindsey has it hands down.  Elsewhere, we are told that in early voting, “Democrats are outvoting their GOP competition.”  Does this surprise anyone?  Honestly?  Dems always flood the early voting facilities as like the bogus fake polls that continue showing “Pro-China Joe” Biden up anywhere from 17 to 35 points, meant to depress the opposition.  Folks, NOTHING is going to depress the GOPPERS, you are going to see turnout the likes of which, you have never seen on Election Day.  The victory is going to dwarf any seen by Ronald Reagan or Richard M. Nixon and we hear from sources around the country that IF the Democrats find 500 ballots in the trunk of a car with Mexico license plates, the GOP will find 750 to 1,000 in a box from a polling station.  Dems, we are going to fight fire with fire.  Watch and see!
  65. 2020 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto drawing #3499 with a prize of $18 million: 04, 13, 25, 34, 46, and Mega 25.  The highest winner was one person who had five numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $31,825.  Next, here are the Powerball #785 draw numbers with a prize of $72 million at stake: 21, 37, 52, 53, 58, and Powerball 05.  The highest winners were 22 people who had four numbers for a prize of $552 apiece.

RR. 2014 Sunday: The U.S. states that evidence suggests a Russian-made missile was fired at Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17; the missile strike killed all 298 people aboard. Meanwhile, pro-Moscow rebels piled nearly 200 bodies from the downed flight into four refrigerated boxcars in eastern Ukraine and cranes at the crash scene moved big chunks of the Boeing 777, drawing condemnation from Western leaders who said the rebels were tampering with the site, which they obviously were, most likely on the orders of Vladimir Putin.

  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.

Meanwhile, opening statements took place in Sanford, Florida, trial of George Zimmerman, the trigger-happy neighborhood watchman accused of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. However, the jury later acquitted him as the prosecutors gave them but one charge instead of several lesser ones, which lead them to give Zimmerman a pass.

At the time of publication, we have not yet heard whether this political activist judge will do what was asked of him or whether he will continue trying to go after Flynn. It is clear to everyone with half-a-brain or more that it’s OVER, the man has been unfairly punished and forced into pleading guilty to save his family members. It has cost him $6.7 million to defend himself from this frivolous batch of bulls**t.
  69. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Kung Flu stats for the world today: 9,237,691 confirmed cases, 476,911 confirmed deaths, and 4,613,425 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,425,361 confirmed cases, 123,726 confirmed deaths, and 746,563 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, the NOT-so-Golden State first: 190,222 confirmed cases, 5,632 confirmed deaths, and as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 819 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 673 confirmed recoveries.  Lastly, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,826 confirmed cases, 1,293 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  For the fun of it, let’s look at the numbers for Michigan: 68,555 confirmed cases, 6,114 confirmed deaths, but sadly, Napoleonic Governor Gretchen Whitmer WON’T release the number of confirmed recoveries.

Trump announces he will sign an executive order that will forbid the desecration of federal monuments or memorials with the possibility of 10 years in federal prison.  We have seen uncontrolled mobs, filled with communists and funded by the Chinese Communist Party (or so we believe) that the minute a horrible crime like the slaying of George Floyd occurs, take to the streets across the nation destroying everything in their path as though they were reincarnations of Mao Zedong’s Red Guards.  Sign it, Mr. President, sign it, and let’s see this scum go to PRISON for good.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.3n Octopus #67 05-30-2020 (400)

 

Like Roky Erickson of the 13th Floor Elevators, there is a certain mystique about fallen ‘acid warriors,’ people whose minds have crossed to the other side and failed to make the transition back.  People are curious and want to hear any unreleased material and “Opel” by Syd Barret, an album of outtakes and alternates and some unreleased tunes from his 1968-69 sessions came out on October 17, 1988.  This is a fascinating album to be sure and it sure is a shame that Barrett went whacko but like Erickson, even whacko, he could produce some phenomenal music.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  You will enjoy it.
