  59. 2020 Wednesday: Although most major news outlets, Democrats, and anti-Trump RINOs have called the election for “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, Las Vegas bookmakers have not.  Meanwhile, votes for President Donald J. Trump continue turning up in various battleground states but in Michigan, a setback occurred when county election workers first refused to certify the elections in the Detroit area until they came under verbal assault and threatened physical assault.  They quickly certified the results and sent them up the ladder to the Michigan secretary of state.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the House GOP leaders vote to retain the same officers in the lower chamber of Congress while initial reports say the Dems might keep current House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi in her position.  How this can be true after they lost beaucoup seats after being promised of the MASSIVE VICTORIES to come is beyond us.  However, what is also beyond us is the fact that the GOP knocked out one Democrat House incumbent after another and we are still to believe that President Donald J. Trump lost his re-election bid?  Say what?
  60. 2020 Wednesday A: The Department of Justice charges seven people for committing fraud on the U.S. government by scamming the Paycheck Protection Program out of $16 million.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump fires Christopher Krebs, a Trump appointee to head the elections security division at the Department of Homeland Security after he proclaimed, ‘NO election shenanigans have occurred in the 2020 Presidential Election.’  Elsewhere, CNN’s famed foreign correspondent, the highly biased Christine Amanpour expressed regret for having used the name of “President Donald J. Trump and his followers” in connection with Kristallnacht.”  That’s nice, Ms. Amanpour, you anti-Semitic bigot.   Finally, we learn that the Durham Probe into the Democrats, the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Obama administration continues.  IF Trump should lose, so what?  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he is doing his best to withdraw 25,000 American troops from the Middle East before the year’s end.
  61. 2020 Wednesday B: Pfizer- not to be outdone by Moderna- says their COVID-19 vaccine is 95-percent or more effective.  However, given billions of dollars by the U.S. government to develop the vaccine in record time to provide 100 million doses of the vaccine by year’s end has now reneged and says it will only provide 20 million doses while sending the other 80 million doses abroad.  Good Lord!  WTF is wrong with American companies?  Oh, wait, Pfizer donated BIG BUCKS to the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  Go figure.
  62. 2020 Wednesday C: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 56,024,130 confirmed cases, UP by 690,756 cases, 1,345,639 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,249 deaths, and 35,969,240 confirmed recoveries, UP by 356,120 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 11,546,233 confirmed cases, UP by 177,590 new cases, 253,423 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,100 new deaths, and 6,095,958 confirmed recoveries, UP by 58,978 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 326,200 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and 315,314 confirmed recoveries. 
  63. 2020 Wednesday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,058,125 confirmed cases, 18,364 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,755 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 140,942 confirmed cases, 2,686 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Virginia, the home of Democratic corruption, elected officials who dress in blackface or who have committed sexual assaults: 208,833 confirmed number of cases, 3,860 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam for concealing the number of recoveries- yet another left-wing liberal POS politician.
  64. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,438.42, DOWN 344.93 points (-1.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,801.60, DOWN 97.74 points (-0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,567.79, DOWN 41.74 points (-1.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,871.00 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $24.40 per troy ounce, -0.53 (-0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.10 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,354.00 per troy oz, +27.50 (+1.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.62 per barrel, -0.20 (-0.48%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.
  65. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto #3509 with a jackpot of $7 million at stake: 01, 02, 16, 27, 32, and Mega 18.  One person had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $27,123.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #795 with a jackpot of $179 million: 04, 05, 17, 43, 52, and Powerball 05.  The highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,296. 
  66. 2020 Wednesday G: Running unopposed for another term as speaker of the House, Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins to the shock of many.  It demonstrates how chicken-s**t the Democrats in the House are that they are afraid of challenging the 80-year-old, mostly senile, incoherent speaker seeing as how she has produced the slimmest ‘majority’ in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives losing 12 incumbent seats and gaining NONE.  Democrats, boot her out NOW!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After floundering about for a while, Lou Gramm discovered- like Mick Jones- that catching lightning twice can be a challenging thing.  Both of them needed one another but after wasting a good amount of time on solo projects and reincarnations of Foreigner, they reunited and released “Mr. Moonlight” on October 31, 1994.  Joining them were Bruce Turgon (bass/backing vocals), Jeff Jacobs (keyboards/backing vocals), Mark Schulman (drums/backing vocals), and a load of other musicians to round out the sound.  Sadly, lightning did not hit them twice and on the charts, this one came in at #136, not enough to bring in much money to keep the band living in the style they once were used to living.  Still, like anything else, it has its moments and one can discern flashes of the OLD GREATNESS so we encourage everyone to investigate for themselves.  You will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of Blue Cheer- one of the wildest acid rock bands of all time, beginning on Sunday, 25-November-2012 through Wednesday, 12-December-2012.  We hope you seek this famed band out and add them to your collection; you will be glad you did.

[ii] We began promoting the music of this famed psychedelic band- Strawberry Alarm Clock- beginning on Tuesday, 03-April-2012 through Saturday, 08-April-2012. Please check them out- you will enjoy them.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[v] It does not require a genius to understand that every Republican president since Ronald Reagan has been the target of outraged Democrats who seek to overthrow the legal system and impeach every GOP president.  Time for this bulls**t to end.

[vi] These illegal protests in Hong Kong continue into 2019 and it is clear that they are out of control and need to be shut down.  Hong Kong is Chinese territory and it should be clear to all that they have been quite patient in their response while awaiting the perpetrators to meet them halfway.

[vii] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[viii] That’s right- we said it: the Chi-Coms provide many of the engineers involved in the project as well as lesser workers.  This is a criminal scam and everyone knows it. 

[ix] Mayor Pete is doing great with the Bath House vote but cannot attract black voters to his cause (and why would they join him?- editor’s note 2019).  We lovingly refer to Mayor Pete as “Little Queenie.”

[x] Chris Matthews claims it was the sound of a coffee mug being scraped across the desk.  You be the judge: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKLn-qjlM_Y >

TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2020

Meanwhile, in the United States, U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi announces formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump over his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his ‘attempted enlistment of a foreign power to aid him in his re-election bid.’ Sadly for Ms. Pelosi, when impeachment ended early next year, she and her top dogs ended up with fecal matter all over their faces. Sobs!

  51. 2017 Sunday: Sadly, misreported comments President Donald J. Trump made on race matters, particularly Charlottesville, cause NFL players to kneel, sit on the bench, or remain inside their locker rooms.  Oh, if only the FAKE NEWS would be honest with the American people.  Following President Trump’s comments on the Golden State Warriors’ Step Curry, the so-called “King,” LeBron James, another misinformed dog dingus, tweets about the 45th president, “U Bum.”  Cool, LeBron, you are so-o-o intelligent that it dazzles the minds of the viewers!

Trump over his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his ‘attempted enlistment of a foreign power to aid him in his re-election bid.’  Sadly for Ms. Pelosi, when impeachment ended early next year, she and her top dogs ended up with fecal matter all over their faces.  Sobs![ii]
  54. 2020 Thursday: Following last night’s violent mob riots in Louisville, Kentucky, over the grand jury’s findings on the Breonna Taylor death, two police officers were shot.  Today, the interim police chief said both are ‘doing well’ and that a suspect- Lorenzo Johnson- is in custody.  Next, Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody is calling for an FBI investigation into neo-lib New York billionaire and failed presidential primary candidate Michael Bloomberg for paying off the fines and other debts of BLACK and BROWN Florida felons with the payback that they- allegedly- will vote DEMOCRAT on November 3.  Bloomberg is breaking all kinds of election law and we look forward to seeing the angry imp go to federal prison.   Speaking of campaigning, President Donald J. Trump will be in North Carolina and Florida today while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is somewhere incognito and his running mate, Kooky Kamala Harris is nowhere to be found.   Speaking of “Gropin’ Joe,” Rush Limbaugh predicts today that the former vice president will be a no-show at next Tuesday night’s presidential debate and that the campaign will use ‘he was exposed to someone with the Beijing Bat Flu and must quarantine.’  We shall see.
  55. 2020 Thursday A: Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the fake news media is beginning to sweat bullets demanding if his ‘low key strategy’ for winning the presidential election is really what he needs to be doing.  They also are questioning Kooky Kamala for being unavailable to the news media.  Where is she?  Where is he?  Is this growing terror among liberal Democrats the reason WHY the fake news media is demanding to know if ‘there will be a peaceful transition of power in January 2021?’  They act as though the president is a goner which is farthest from the truth.  The man is going to SMOKE them and the GOP is going to crush the Beijing-backed Democratic Party.  Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., President Donald J. Trump, and First Lady Melania Trump pay their respects to deceased U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the steps of the court as she lies in repose for the second day.  Assembled throngs of protesters scream and yell all manner of insults at the pair, which is a shame but folks, like water runs off the backs of ducks, so, too, do insults leveled at the president and first lady.  Shame on you scumbags.  
  56. 2020 Thursday B: Last week, there were 870,000 new jobless claims which reflects the damage being done to the foodservice and hospitality industries as well as to the airlines.  Most of the damage is being purposefully caused by states where Democrats run amok.  Let us change that on November 3 in the places in which, we, the American people can.  Speaking of the election, today, a letter from 500+ former U.S. military and cabinet officials says that “Trump is unfit to serve as commander-in-chief” and that [senile old] Joe Biden would be a fine commander-in-chief due to his principles and morality.  Please- the man and hus son abused his office to reap vast amounts of wealth from the Chi-Coms and the Ukrainians.  The guy and his family should be nowhere near the White House or the levers of power.
  57. 2020 Thursday C: 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: 32,039,142 confirmed cases, +351,335, 979,389, confirmed deaths, +6,820, and 22,024,644 confirmed recoveries, +236,421.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,046,492 confirmed cases, up 30,167 from yesterday’s reporting, 205,614 confirmed deaths, UP 848, and 3,800,745 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,103.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 209,635 confirmed cases, 1,376 confirmed deaths, and 148,417 confirmed recoveries.
  58. 2020 Thursday D: 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: 799,752 confirmed cases, 15,330 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,820 confirmed cases, 122 confirmed deaths, and 5,125 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 88,113 confirmed cases, 2,175 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Massachusetts- currently, they have 128,993 confirmed cases, 9,362 confirmed deaths, but no mention confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Charlie Baker for being a Republican who is behaving like a Democrat and staying mum on the recoveries.
  59. 2020 Thursday E: We had a FAIRLY LARGE SELL-OFF today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,815.44, UP 52.31 points (+0.20%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,672.27, UP 39.28 points (+0.37%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,246.59, UP 9.67 points (+0.30%).  Price of GOLD: $1,871.90 per troy oz., -5.00 (-0.27%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.22 per troy oz., +0.029 (+0.13%).  Price of PLATINUM: $843.10 per troy oz., +5.10 (+0.61%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,235.50 per troy oz., +2.50 (+0.11%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.97 per #, -0.0025 (-0.08%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.19, -0.12 (-0.30%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.83 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Conversely, one dollar U.S. = 29.27 Taiwanese dollars.
  60. 2020 Thursday F: We learned today that the Durham investigation into what launched the ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ scheme in motion has absorbed the 2017 federal investigation into the Clinton Foundation as well as what happened to her emails, the ones she says ‘disappeared.’  Couple that with information that began coming out yesterday that showed many of the FBI agents coerced into investigating candidate- and then- President Trump were dubious about the entire mess.  As each day progresses, more and more proof continues dropping that the whole sham investigation the Obama Justice Department initiated was as fraudulent as scores of millions of open-minded Americans believed to be duplicitous from the beginning.   How soon before we witness key components of the illegal investigation going to prison?  Speaking of the U.S. Justice Department and the feds, Justice reports that approximately 127 ‘peaceful protesters’ underwent arrest last night in Louisville, Kentucky, for riot-related charges.  Lock ‘em up.
  61. 2020 Thursday G:  Word came out today that three members of the Metro North NYC Public Transit employees- two foremen and one worker- are in trouble for having constructed a comprehensive mancave underneath Grand Central Station.  The ‘clubhouse’ had couches, television sets, refrigerators, all the things guys on the job require for braving boring jobs.  We shall see what happens to them.  Elsewhere, tomorrow, the casket holding Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body will lie in state in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol, the first woman to be so honored and the final day of the three-day celebration of the high court’s second female justice.
  62. 2020 Thursday H: FREE CHINA- aka Taiwan- reports that for three days in a row, Chi-Com surveillance planes have attempted to penetrate the Republic of China’s airspace but that the Taiwanese drove them off.  It is clear the communist Chinese are increasing pressure on their freedom-loving cousins.  Beat ‘em back, boys!  Meanwhile, we learn that Putin critic Alexei Navalny, while being treated for Novichok poisoning in Berlin, had his bank accounts and home seized by Putin’s thugs.  Who didn’t see that coming?
  63. 2020 Thursday I: Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel show that “The Bail Project,” a leftist group designed to spring arrested rioters across the country is funded by some of the wealthiest people in America.  An operative named Holly Zoller funded the U-Haul truck filled with riot gear for the Louisville rioters.  These people need to go to prison.  Now.  They brag on their site (https://bailproject.org/) that as of this evening, they have paid the bail of more than 12,096 rioters and thugs.
  64. 2020 Thursday J: Stick around to discover what outrageous activity the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges have committed today- we never know what it is but we do know it’s going to be awesome!  Tonight’s Thursday Night Football Game features the Miami Dolphins @ the Jacksonville Jaguars.  At the half, the Dolphins lead 21-7. The Dolphins won 31-13.

[i] We are not sure when we will promote the music of Oakland’s Tower of Power but you can be sure that we will do so when we begin promoting the music of funk-rock, horn-powered bands.  However, when we do, we suspect we will do the music of Chicago, Loading Zone, and Blood, Sweat & Tears, so please stick around and see what happens.

[ii] This would indeed become a massive disaster for the Democrats but we could think of no one better than to have fecal matter all over their puckered up faces.
