  54. 2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment.  About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life.  Harmeet Dhillon launches a lawsuit on behalf of beaten journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon, last year.   Get them, Harmeet!   Again, we must say that the majority of us writing for the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believe that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party who channels Beijing’s dark money to its various action groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Time to bring ALL of them down.
  55. 2021 Friday: Let’s see what corruption the Democrats and their bosses in Beijing are up to today…

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

Although some fans of Jethro Tull loved both “Thick as a Brick” and “A Passion Play,” many were disappointed that the band had not plowed on in “Aqualung” or “Benefit” mode at best or “This Was” and “Stand Up” at worst, many were skeptical and support for the band was wavering somewhat which is pretty amazing.  After “Aqualung,” you would have thought the band would have put its creative talents and efforts into a another, greater album but they went the other route.  “War Child,” released on October 14, 1974 put the band back on track what with the massive single, “Bungle in the Jungle.”  Sure, you can slam it as being ‘pop’ but it was a great tune just as the album was.  Once the critics have nibbled out a chink, instead of lavishing praise where praise is do, they continue needling away.  Ah well, you know our motto: “F**k the critics,” this is a great album so seek it out now.  The lineup features Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jeffrey Hammond (bass and keyboards), John Evan (keyboards), and Barriemore Barlow (drums).
