- 2018 Wednesday: To the outrage of many, President Donald J.

- 2019 Thursday: The so-called “Godfather of Crystal Meth” in China- Cai Dongyi- undergoes execution by the authorities for his numerous crimes. Meanwhile, in response to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s suggestion of a rescheduling of the SOTU address, postpones the scheduled ‘investigative trip’ by House and Senate Dems- including leadership- scheduled to leave for Europe, Egypt, and Afghanistan as the aircraft sits on the runway preparing to take off. Oops.
- 2020 Friday: The Chi-Coms waste no time: a man convicted of murdering a doctor on New Year’s Eve receives a penalty of death. Apparently, attacks on medical personnel have increased in the communist giant following the outbreak of the Bat Flu and a lackluster response in dealing with it. The man killed a doctor in Beijing. So, 17-plus days after the crime, he’s tried and convicted and most likely going to have the sentence carried out soon. The U.S. could learn something on this front.
- 2021 Sunday: Following an average of violent assaults on ten transit workers per month since July 2020, New York City Transit officials are begging for extra security from their ‘missing in action’ worthless Mayor Bill Di Blasio.

Meanwhile, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden guarantees that on Inauguration Day, he is going to legalize 11 million illegal aliens as a start which will lead to an erasing of borders. Election theft has consequences. Elsewhere, “Big Brother Facebook” now is going to ban ads for weapon accessories.
- 2021 Sunday A: The House Intel Committee requests all documents on the events that lead up to the storming of the Capitol Hill on January 6. What will they say when they learn for sure that Chi-Com-funded Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs infiltrated and instigated the actions that occurred on that dark day? We have learned that not only the Chi-Coms but also the Iranians and possibly the Russians funneled Bitcoin dark money through Europe that made its way into the hands of the human garbage that desecrated the nation’s capital and have given the Democrats their Reichstag Fire moment. Speaking of the “Reichstag Fire” moment, statehouses across the country are ‘gearing up for Inauguration Day violence caused by TRUMP SUPPORTERS.” Oh, please, they are blaming Trump supporters for their crackdown on civil liberties and the overthrow of the American way of life. Meanwhile, 59-percent of Republicans want their legislators to challenge “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s theft of the 2020 Presidential Election as do we.
- 2021 Sunday B: Vice President Mike Pence is visiting Fort Drum today to deliver remarks to the 10th Mountain Division. Elsewhere, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee says that ‘Kamala Harris should be impeached for having supported left-wing political violence all last year’ as well as for ‘bailing out criminal thugs who perpetrated said violence.’ We agree. We also approve of Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s articles of impeachment against “Chi-Com Joe” Biden on January 21, 2020 for his deep ties to COMMUNIST CHINA. Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Vice President Mike Pence urges the incoming ‘Biden-Harris’ administration to maintain eternal vigilance on the communist Chi-Coms. Elsewhere, one of the BOGUS Lincoln Project’s co-founders John Weaver steps down for having propositioned numerous young men seeking sexual hook-ups for misbehavior. Lincoln Project is as bogus as is the 1619 Project, crackpot, left-wing BS crap.
- 2021 Sunday C: A recent NBC poll shows that approval ratings among Republicans for President Trump is as high as ever with 87-percent of the GOP solidly behind the president. Meanwhile, this past Friday, Bill Maher criticized the incoming ‘Biden-Harris administration’ for flaunting all the COVID-19 restrictions by holding large inaugural events. Everyone else but leftwing protesters must remain indoors cowering from the Chi-Vi, the Kung Flu, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. We say, “F**k them!” P.S.- Joe will NEVER be our president.
- 2021 Sunday D: The Australian Open is going to proceed in early February as planned even though some tennis players must remain indoors for 14 days if anyone around them tested positive for the Chinese Virus. Many players said they would not have come had they known they would have had to remain indoors without practice for two flipping weeks. Who can blame them? Elsewhere, Betty White hits 99 years of age today. Meanwhile, fans of Jeopardy! want the stage named for the late host, Alex Trebek.
- 2021 Sunday E: Alexei Navalny arrives back in Moscow and is detained on arrival by Russian authorities. Elsewhere, former Facebook official suggests that cable providers drop OAN and Newsmax. Simultaneously, Twitter has suspended the account of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene. AND YOU THINK THERE’S NO FUNNY BUSINESS GOING ON ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD?
- 2021 Sunday F: On day 2 of the NFL Divisional Round of the playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs (15-2) survive the loss of quarterback Patrick Mahomes and beat the visiting Cleveland Browns (12-6) by a final score of 22-17. In the second game, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-5) beat the New Orleans Saints, 20 (13-5). Next Sunday, the Bucs will visit Green Bay and Buffalo will visit Kansas City in the conference round. We are making a BOLD prediction now- a ‘State Farm Super Bowl,’ Kansas City vs. Green Bay! You heard it here first!
- 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 95,003,533 confirmed cases, +592,965, 2,029,938, confirmed deaths, +9,896, and 52,269,644 confirmed recoveries, +302,236.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Not to be outdone by the competition, UFO released their first ‘best of’ album, “Space Metal,” on October 13, 1976. Of course, this 2-LP set was issued by their original record company and it contained tracks from their first two albums plus some cuts from a live album released in Japan as a promotional effort. Whatever the reason for the collection of cuts, we hope that you will seek this one out because as completists, we all want every scrap, every shard of music created by a band. The group’s first two albums make anything one finds themselves forced to listen to nowadays, Mexican music, Maroon Five, some skank with a single name, sound like the crap it is because this stuff is smoking. We hope you will rush out and give it a listen- you’ll enjoy it.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY JANUARY 17, 2021
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Sunday, January 17, 2021:
[i] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012. We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.
[ii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.. The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017. We hope you will check them out.
[iii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016. This included the members solo projects which include Mick Taylor’s solo efforts.
[iv] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014. We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection. The debut Led Zeppelin album appeared on 07-July-2014. We hope you will check this famed British band out.
[v] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015. We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago. Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five.
[vi] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land. At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books. (I don’t believe this- BOM)
