DDD. 2007 Sunday: Some places you can get away with stuff and in others you cannot: after the Moscow mayor- Yuri Luzhkov- just like last year banned a gay pride event and parade in his city, apparently the participants failed to get the message, Moscow police go out and beat up Russian gay rights activists and foreign dignitaries who came to celebrate a change in Russia (or so they thought).

  55. 2006 Saturday: A massive earthquake slams Java in Indonesia, killing at least 6,600 people and wounding countless others as well as leaving hundreds of thousands homeless. Elsewhere, the gay pride folks once again take to the streets of Moscow, trying to get that country to enter into the 21st century but it goes awry as usual.  Mayor Yuri Luzhkov announced that ‘homosexuality is unnatural’ and banned the long-anticipated gay rights parade.  This led to the police taking to the streets, beating, and arresting people- including members of the European Parliament.  Russia does not want this and the more you push it the more violent the outcome is going to be.  Maybe things will be better next year.
  56. 2007 Sunday: Some places you can get away with stuff and in others you cannot: after the Moscow mayor- Yuri Luzhkov- just like last year banned a gay pride event and parade in his city, apparently the participants failed to get the message, Moscow police go out and beat up Russian gay rights activists and foreign dignitaries who came to celebrate a change in Russia (or so they thought). (Note- there aren’t going to be any changes in Russia anytime soon).
  57. 2008 Tuesday: Problems are going on between the Argentine government and grain farmers.

  58. 2009 Wednesday: In Lahore, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ carry out another suicide bombing that delivers 35 True Believers up to Allah sooner than any of them had planned and injures at least 250 other poor souls. WTF!   Meanwhile, in an extremely curious move, Russia agrees to supply U.S. civilian nuclear reactors with $1 billion worth of uranium.
  59. 2010 Thursday: The Israeli government calls the ambassadors of several nations- Sweden, Cyprus, Ireland, Greece, and Turkey- on the carpet for launching a flotilla of ‘aid’ to the Gaza Strip, a territory the Israelis have kept under blockade for the past three years due to their terrorist operations against their country. These countries compiled a ‘fleet’ of eight ships- four of which were cargo ships carrying ‘supplies’ to the Palestinians as well as a ferry trundling down the coast from Turkey carrying 600 people.  The Israelis don’t deserve this crap.  It is a clash of civilizations- Israel representing civilization and the Palestinians representing barbarism.
  60. 2011 Friday: Prime Minister David Cameron confirms that the United Kingdom is sending Apache attack helicopters to help the Libyan rebels in their attempt to overthrow Dictator Moammar Gaddafi. Meanwhile- California Burning: a massive wildfire in the surrounding hills above Lake Isabella, Kern County, forces residents to flee via the three available avenues out of the area.  The California drought has depleted the massive reservoir.
  61. 2012 Sunday: Following some controversial remarks, Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, suffers accusations of “insulting the Greek people.” Elsewhere, Vladimir Putin’s hired thugs disguised as ‘protesters’ take to the streets in Tbilisi, Georgia, demanding the ouster of the duly-elected government of Mikhail Saakashvili.    
  62. 2013 Monday: Scientists in Canada bring 400-year-old bryophyte specimens left behind by retreating glaciers during the Ice Age back to life. Elsewhere, the European Union decided to lift an arms embargo on the Syrian opposition while maintaining all other sanctions against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator John McCain, R-Arizona, a proponent of arming Syrian rebels (without knowing who the f**k they are), quietly slipped into Syria for a meeting with antigovernment forces.       
  63. 2014 Tuesday: President Barack Obama plans to keep 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan through the end of 2015 and then reduce this number over the following two years to a small force; the troops will train Afghan forces and conduct counterterrorism operations. However, while giving a press conference at Baghram Air Base in Afghanistan, the White House, i.e., President Obama, ‘accidentally leaks’ the name of the top CIA intelligence officer in that country and even worse, he does it before 6,000 assembled journalists.  WTF, President O?  When ‘Scooter’ Libby ‘accidentally’ spilled the name of Valerie Plame, he went to federal prison.
  64. 2015 Wednesday: According to Brainy History, the federal government approves commercial space company SpaceX as a contractor to the U.S. military for satellite launches; SpaceX will compete for contracts against the Boeing-Lockheed Martin United Launch Alliance, currently the primary military launch provider. Elsewhere, former Senator Rick Santorum, RINO-PA, announces he will be running for 2016 presidential nomination of the Republican Party.  Uh, okay. 
  65. 2016 Friday: Longtime bassist with the soul-funk-rock band, The Ohio Players[iii]—Marshall “Rock” Jones—died on this date in Houston, Texas; he was 75 years-old. Elsewhere, Iranian morality police scoop up at least 30 college students who had the chutzpah to attend a co-ed graduation party.  The penalty for their crimes?  Ninety-nine lashes.    Can’t have the sexes mingling now can we?  Barbarism folks, plain, simple barbarism.
  66. 2017 Saturday: Gregg Allman, famed lead singer of the Macon, Ga., rock band, the Allman Brothers[iv], died at his home in Richmond Hill, Georgia, on this date due to the ill effects of liver disease. Elsewhere, at Taormina, Italy, the 43rd G7 summit sputters to an end as every leader save for President Donald J. Trump votes to uphold the NON-BINDING Paris Climate Accord.  Of course, the BBC and American liberals began wailing about ‘climate change denial’ when in truth, there is NO evidence that it exists or does not exist.  The planet is in a constant state of flux and anyone who says otherwise simply does not accept the PROVEN science.  Climate change for former committed communists is the easiest way to force totalitarianism upon an unsuspecting population.
  67. 2018 Sunday: Problems continue erupting across Brazil as workers at the state-owned petroleum company- Petrobras- join the ongoing teamsters strike. Elsewhere, the Israelis announce they will be building a ‘unique deterrent’ to Palestinians boarding ships and sneaking into Israel by sailing around land barriers and landing on their beaches.  The new obstacles will be three stories high and will be constructed of stone and defensive fencing which will prevent jihadists crossing from Gaza getting into Israel and causing problems.  Destroy the vermin.   (Note- the U.S. requires something like this on the Mexican border by San Diego, California).
  68. 2019 Monday: A new global study that investigated 711 rivers around the world finds that many of them are polluted with antibiotics and other medicines either flushed down the toilet or tossed into them for disposal. Elsewhere, Reuters reports a horrifying story that in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, prison officials in several different jails discovered the corpses of at least 42 inmates strangled to death.  This followed on the heels of yesterday’s deaths of 15 gangbanging thugs in the state capital’s prison.  The violence appears to be spreading like a cancer.
  69. 2020 Wednesday: Sadly, America’s first attempt in nine years at putting astronauts back into space is scrubbed due to electrical storms raging in parts of Florida. Saturday is the next date.  Astronauts Bob Bacon and Doug Hurley were aboard the Falcon 9 rocket provided by Space X.  Waiting aboard the Dragon Crew Capsule for their 19-hour trip to the International Space Station for over an hour, the duo learned the flight was postponed due to safety reasons.  We will be there Saturday.
  70. 2020 Wednesday A: The Chinese-created COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Virus continues causing problems and some scientists now say the virus is engineered ‘perfectly’ in that it can morph into variations that a normal virus could not. Thank you, communist China, but the AICPENDBLOG.COM believed from the beginning that the Wuhan Flu’s appearance was too ‘coincidental’ to show up shortly after the communist Chinese lower level signatories to the U.S.-China Trade Deal.  That is not right.  Here are the statistics for today for the world: 5,651,806 confirmed cases, 353,246 confirmed deaths, and 2,325,989 confirmed recoveries. 
  71. 2020 Wednesday B: In the United States, we have 1,730,136 confirmed cases, 101,356 confirmed deaths, and 369,460 confirmed recoveries. It is important to note that recoveries would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics with the disease.  To us, this demonstrates evidence of the COLLUSION between communist China and the Democratic Party, something that must be investigated if the American people are ever to learn the truth.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the statistics, California first: 98,980 confirmed cases, 3,884 confirmed deaths, BUT ZERO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which confirms for us that Governor Gavin Newsom is doing nothing but playing politics.  In Hawaii, here are the numbers: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the socialist non-paradise of Washington state, here are the stats: 20,181 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  (It is interesting to note that Chef Vladimir says that prior to mail-in ballots in the state became the norm, the state was a reliable RED in every election as it will be again when people return to voting in the normal way).

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)

Pictures #0001-1495


Blodwyn Pig released its second album, “Getting to This,” on April 10, 1970.  Once again, the band featured Mick Abrahams (guitars and vocals), Jack Lancaster (brass instruments, woodwind instruments, guitars, violins, and arrangements) as well as Andy Pyle (bass) and Rob Berg (drums).  Like the group’s freshman effort, this album made the British Top 10 thanks to its rumbling blues intermixed with jazz and other elements.  Although the group would fold not long after its release, one must ponder as to what might have been had they become the driving force in the world of rock music that they should have been.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your listening pleasure…you will be glad you did.
