Trump’s words.  We learn of a program called Centra that allows the ‘social media twerps’ to follow their users across a variety of social media spectrums compiling dossiers on every user of their sites.  Not only is this dangerous, it is outright EVIL as none of these little closet fairies has any right to censor anyone, much less track anyone across the World Wide Web.  Senators, do your duty and break them up as well as Google and deport Sundar Pichai and his family back to Bangladesh or wherever the hell the scumbag emanates.
  57. 2020 Tuesday B: Tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1608 with a $135 million jackpot on the line- here are the numbers- 08, 13, 35, 46, 68, and Mega 16.  The highest winners were two people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,515 apiece.

  59. 2020 Tuesday 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: 1,051,642 confirmed cases, 18,317 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,711 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and today, NO mention of confirmed recoveries- that’s unusual.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 139,275 confirmed cases, 2,664 confirmed deaths, but like California, the thuggish 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, Louisiana: 207,685 confirmed number of cases, 6,156  confirmed number of deaths, but no mention of confirmed number of recoveries- that’s Governor John Bel Edwards for you.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 325,537 confirmed cases, 2,736 confirmed deaths, and 313,643 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Tuesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,783.35, DOWN 167.09 points (-0.56%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,899.34, DOWN 24.79 points (-0.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,609.53, DOWN 17.38 points (-0.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,880.40 per troy oz., -4.70 (-0.25%) while the price of SILVER is $24.56 per troy ounce, -0.091 (-0.37%).  The price of PLATINUM is $933.40 per troy oz, -3.70 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, +0.007 (+0.22%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,326.50 per troy oz., -18.60 (-0.79%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.22 per barrel, -0.21 (-0.51%).  Today, COCOA is $2,435.00 per metric ton, -0.82 (-3.26).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.56 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Seeing as how Foreigner was going through some ‘unprofitable changes,’ the band’s record company stepped in and released the group’s first live album, “Classic Hits Live/Best of Live” on November 16, 1993.  The album contained classic live tunes culled from performances between 1977 and 1985 so you have the following lineup of personnel: Mick Jones (guitars), Ian McDonald (guitars, vocals, keyboards, and horns), Al Greenwood (keyboards), Ed Gagliardi (bass, vocals), Dennis Elliot (drums), Lou Gramm (vocals), and Rick Wills (bass).  Every song is smoking hot so for fans of the band, this was a godsend whereas for others, they gave it passing note in the same way they did the Bad Company of the 1990s.  We like it so you understand what that means, seek it out, give it a listen, and determine if it’s right for you- you won’t find much better.

  61. 2018 Wednesday: U.S. Sen. John McCain was remembered as a “true American hero” at a crowded service at the North Phoenix Baptist Church after a motorcade carried McCain’s body from the state Capitol.  Meanwhile, the government reported that the economy had grown at a 4.2-percent annual rate in the April-June quarter, the best showing in nearly four years, all thanks to President Donald J. Trump.   
  62. 2019 Thursday: In “Science” magazine, an article featuring research into the so-called ‘gay gene,’ the one gays swear exists- especially those claiming to be ‘born that way’ says there is NO single gene accounting for those attracted to members of the same sex.  Now, some claim the ‘attraction’ is as high as 25-percent which most people believe is preposterous.
  63. 2020 Saturday: While President Trump was visiting the Gulf Coast states of Texas and Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura- a storm in which at least 14 people died- the father of George Blake celebrates his son by repeatedly calling for calm while doing everything possible to stir up another riot.  Contradictory indeed.  Meanwhile, South Korea reports dramatic increases in new COVID-19 numbers, especially around the capital of Seoul where more than half of the country’s 51 million people lives.  Speaking of the Bat Flu, Berlin police shut down an anti-COVID-19 protest rally demanding an end to the onerous restrictions placed upon the German populace.  Some of the marchers carried American, Russian, and German Reich flags while others wore QANON t-shirts, what liberals claim to be ‘conspiracy theories.’  Elsewhere, reports regarding the costs of all the Antifa- and Black Lives Matter- funded and initiated riots are coming out.  Minneapolis is down in the crapper with more than $500 million while in Bill Di Blasio’s city, they are facing a deficit of $290 million in destroyed buildings, infrastructure, and emergency rescue and police vehicles.  Should have stopped the riots.  Finally, the U.S. FDA okays the expanded use of the drug Remdesvir for use in ALL COVID-19 cases and not just potentially lethal ones.   For those in critical condition due to the Kung Flu, within five days, 65-percent of the patients dramatically improve.  What about hydroxychloroquine?  Cheap and effective!
  64. 2020 Saturday A: Early this morning, police in Portland, Oregon, declared yet another riot after a so-called ‘peaceful protest’ once again erupted into a violent mob shortly after midnight.  These peaceful ‘beatnik types’ tried to trap law enforcement officers inside the police union building and then did everything they could to set it ablaze and murder the people inside.  Folks, there is an answer to this: anyone tossing a Molotov cocktail, you shoot them dead.  This stops this sort of illegal activity in its tracks and puts everyone else on notice as to what you will and what you WON’T accept.  This used to be the way things were done.  Elsewhere, another military mishap occurs as a U.S. Army helicopter crashes into San Clemente Island 70 miles off of Coronado, California, killing two special forces soldiers and wounding several others.  Finally, U.S. Director of National Intelligence ignites a firestorm among House Democrats when he says he ‘will no longer testify in person before the House about Election security.’  He will, however, provide written answers.  Of course the Dems are angry, they can no longer showboat and act like a bunch of rapscallions as they do any time a member of the Trump administration testifies before them.
  65. 2020 Saturday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days.  Sorry.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 17, 1975, Electric Light Orchestra would release one of the biggest selling albums in the band’s career: “Face the Music.”  This album would contain two big hits, “Evil Woman” and “Strange Magic.”   This would become the group’s first platinum-selling album in part to the two big hits which is why we encourage everyone to check it out as the band was becoming a stadium act in the next year or so.  The lineup was somewhat altered, now featuring Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), Kelly Groucutt (bass, backing vocals), Melvyn Gale (cello), Mik Kaminski (violin), and Hugh McDowell (cello) and some additional vocalists.  This is a must-own album for every fan of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Please, check it out and enjoy.

[ii] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

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

[v] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[viii] We look forward to promoting the music of Roy Orbison when we do other classic rockers such as Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers, and others of that ilk.

[ix] See footnote vii.

[x] Many of the Yippies are the parents of the Antifa and Black Lives Matter trash running rampant in America’s streets in 2020.  Time to tune up their kids- NOW.

[xi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.  The album, “Abracadabra,” which features the cut appeared on Tuesday, 09-August-2011.
