Meanwhile, the United Nations points its impotent finger at Venezuela, accusing the socialist-communist nation where Chavismo reigns supreme of using death squads and an agenda of terror to keep the population subdued. The world body points to the fact that in 2018, at least 5,287 people lost their lives at the hands of the police and their communist Cuban goon squad, supposedly for ‘resisting arrest.’ IF the world body is so concerned, do what the hell the civilized nations and the Soviet Union created the world body to do, to stop this kind of crap by mobilizing troops and sending them there to topple the government of bus driver President Nicolas Maduro. Do it NOW! Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., President Donald J. Trump holds a “Salute to America” celebration with U.S. military personnel, tanks on the Washington Mall so people can view military equipment for which their tax dollars pay as well as various military aircraft doing flyovers.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. In Hawaii, here are the stats: 975 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 754 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 34,919 confirmed cases, 1,352 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.
- 2021 Sunday: Happy Fourth of July, Independence Day, the ONLY Independence Day in the United States. Stick around to see if anything is going on today, like a Chi-Com first strike on Washington, D.C.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
On January 29, 1994, Blodwyn Pig released their first LIVE album and what a good one it was: “All Tore Down.” The band featured a quartet of Mick Abrams (guitars and vocals), Mike Summerland (bass and vocals), Graham Walker (drums), and Dave Lennox (keyboards and vocals). There are nine great tunes on this CD, an album we encourage everyone to buy as Mr. Abrams is one of the all-time great guitarists. He should be on the list of all-time greats such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Kim Simmonds, and Alvin Lee. We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite site for the absolute best in music and will then add it to your ever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved albums. Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SUNDAY JULY 04, 2021 #4,017
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Sunday, July 04, 2021:
[i] Little would President Thomas Jefferson would ever know, about 190 some years later, American communists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa and other left-wing, Democrat-funded group would revile this brave founding father and American leader as an EVIL SLAVEOWNER to which we say, “F**K THEM!” We cannot judge people of the past by those of today. We must stop the vile communists, well-funded by George Soros, Beijing, and other leftist POS from destroying the nation’s heritage, both good and bad. We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will fight tooth and nail to protect the United States and all its history.
[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015. We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening enjoyment.
[iii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011. We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.
[iv] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.
[v] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011. At the time we did so- in the earliest days of our second blog- we overlooked all of the individual solo efforts by everyone, ranging from Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Peter Green, Bob Welch, to Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham. We hope to rectify that fledgling error by doing an updated presentation sometime in the future. Please stay tuned.
[vi] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so. We hope you will be there when we do. We thank you.
[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of the Beach Boys and the group’s individual members- Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson as well as Alan Jardine, Mike Love, Bruce Johnson, and other members- at some point. It will be a lengthy presentation rivaling if not surpassing the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Who, and Genesis.
[viii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018. Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys and the Plastic Ono Band.
[ix] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years. We hope you will be with us when we do. When we do, we will do our best to include the music of various collaborations and spin-offs from the group, seeing as how every member was extremely talented.
[x] To which, we say, “F**K the Democrats, stop the crying, shut your mouths, you insolent unpatriotic POS.
WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO
