- 1946 Monday: At the Nuremburg War Crimes Trials, former Luftwaffe Chief Hermann Goering is still in the witness dock.

Goering, however, knows the score- he knows he’s destined for the hangman’s noose unless a miracle happens. Elsewhere, 32.1st Acting U.S. Interior Secretary Oscar L.

In the fighting, the French Union troops have lost three of 12 battalions although two have managed to parachute in to replace them. On the other side of the dividing line, General Giap is calling for reinforcements and fresh supplies as his losses assaulting French positions have been horribly costly.

Billed as the “Fight of the Year,” this bout pitted two hard-punching boxers against one another. However, the judges threw the fight to Tyson by awarding him with a TKO victory. Once given the victory, Ruddock’s corner stormed into the ring and went after the referee which caused Tyson’s corner to enter the ring and a brief melee ensued.

- 2003 Tuesday: Tomorrow is the jumping off point for the invasion of Iraq. Hundreds of millions of people across the world are praying the world will not go to war but to war the United States would go, all because the Military-Industrial-Political Complex will rake in tens of billions of dollars in war materials, conquered territory, and regime change. President George W. Bush, PLEASE- don’t do this. We beg you. Meanwhile, the foreign ministry in Iraq labels President Bush a ‘war criminal’ before the war is even under way.
- 2004 Thursday: Howard Dean announces he is going to form a far-left organization of people of like mind, the progressive Democracy for America group. This guy’s a nut.

Security Council vote just days before authorizing any naval force encountering pirates off the coast of East Africa to engage, a U.S. Naval squadron encounters Somali pirates and lights them up killing at least 1, wounding others, and taking 12 prisoners.

- 2007 Sunday: The war in Iraq continues killing people and destroying property. A bomb goes off in Baghdad killing at least 11 people and wounding God knows how many others. Elsewhere, French crime writer Cesare Battisti is arrested in Brazil. Apparently, his home country’s courts in Italy convicted him in absentia of two murders back in the 1970s. The Italian police were finally able to capture the rogue and extradite him back to Rome to face justice.
- 2008 Tuesday: You know it’s an election year when loads of limp-wristed sissies turn out to protest the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. Look, we agree, NO one wanted George W. Bush to invade Iraq but the more we think about it, the more it appears that the Deep State aka the Military-Industrial-Political Complex egged him on to do it because industrialists and corporatists can only make money when bombs are dropping on Middle Eastern and other Third World targets and blood is being shed for oil. When we don’t even get the oil, it’s even worse. Fricking Dick Cheney! Meanwhile, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, does his best to distance himself from the insane comments made by his ‘former’ Reverend Jeremiah “Chickens Have Come Home to Roost” Wright in whose church Senator and Mrs. Obama sat for 20 years.
- 2009 Wednesday: Kent Henry, former guitarist with Blues Image and Steppenwolf[x] died at age 60 from the effects of Alzheimer’s disease in Portland, Oregon.

Meanwhile, as an uproar continues over the bonuses AIG plans to give to its board members and CEO, AIG announces that the recipients will return ‘half of their bonuses’ to the government. Get them and get the hell out of town.
- 2010 Thursday: In anticipation of passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA, aka the ACA, aka Obamacare- the White House delays an overseas trip so President Barack Obama can sign the bill when it reaches his desk. The Democrats expect to have the 216 votes with which to pass this monstrosity that will destroy the American healthcare system for generations to come, lead to lower-quality healthcare, and create ‘Death Panels’ with which government bureaucrats will eliminate what the Nazis called, “Useless eaters,” people who took more resources to stay alive than they gave back to society. We hope it won’t pass.
- 2011 Friday: After the United States, Britain, and France authorized a No-Fly Zone over Libya, Libyan authorities announced that it would call for a ceasefire, which it immediately violated by killing 25 civilians in Misrata. Meanwhile, the MESSENGER spacecraft goes into orbit around the planet Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun.
- 2012 Sunday: Armed rebels are running amok in Damascus, Syria. Following a massive car bomb blowing up part of the city, raging gun battles break out in the streets leading to at least 27 dead and countless others injured. Meanwhile, the U.S. military identifies the shooter of 16 Afghan civilians as U.S. Army Sgt. Robert Bales. Currently, he is being held in solitary confinement at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. Afghan President Hamid Karzai is screeching about ‘multiple shooters killing the 16 which included 9 children’ but no evidence supporting those allegations is found. Sgt. Bales enlisted in the military following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and had served multiple tours fighting terrorists.
- 2013 Monday: At Kano, Nigeria, an explosion at a bus park claims the lives of 25 people and injures numerous others. Meanwhile, an explosion erupts claiming the lives of 10 people and injures 20 others as a car bomb goes off in Mogadishu, Somalia.

Meanwhile, founding member of Blues Image[xi] as well as performer with other bands—drummer/percussionist Joe Lala—died on this date in his hometown of Tampa, Florida, at age 66 from lung cancer. Finally, famed NBA coach Phil Jackson signs a five-year contract to become the president of the New York Knicks. Oh, well.
- 2015 Wednesday: Although election consultants sent by President Barack Obama to help the opposition to Israeli leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, worked hard and spent millions to beat the prime minister, Netanyahu and his Likud Party retain power. Mr. Netanyahu set out to form a new coalition government. Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Frankfurt, Germany, during a massive protest against austerity measures proposed by Berlin.
- 2016 Friday: American actor Joe Santos of Rockford Files fame dies at age 84. Elsewhere, following imposition of new sanctions on North Korea, South Korea reports that its northern neighbor fired off two ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan. Meanwhile, European Union leaders are trying to bribe Turkey to do something about halting the ongoing flow of Muslim ‘refugees’ from the Middle East, Central Asia, and other parts of the region through their country and into Europe. Something has got to give.
- 2017 Saturday: The founder of rock-and-roll—the great Chuck Berry[xii]—died from natural causes at the age of 90 in Wentzville, Missouri. Meanwhile, as Iraqi military forces begin assaulting ISIS positions in western Mosul, tens of thousands of civilians try to flee through the battle lines. The Iraqis have to sort out civilian from terrorist, it’s an onerous process but a necessary one.
- 2018 Sunday: In a ‘shock of shocks’ (yeah, right), Russian thug president and oligarch Vladimir Putin wins his fourth term with 76-percent of the vote. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka ends the state of emergency it declared on March 06, 2018, after anti-Muslim riots got out of hand.
- 2019 Monday: According to the U.S. National Weather Service, historic, catastrophic flooding occurs as parts of Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and South Dakota find themselves battling floodwaters. Of course, this is a SIGN of ‘Climate Change.’ Ooh, la-la. Elsewhere, New Zealand mourns the loss of people killed in the recent mosque shootings, urging the populace to show compassion for the Muslim population. Meanwhile, in Utrecht, Netherlands, a jihadist seeking revenge for the mosque shootings in New Zealand opens fire on a train, killing three people and wounding others. The police finally track the POS down and discover that he is a Turkish immigrant. Bring out the old guillotine.
- 2020 Wednesday: As of today, there are 214,894 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the “Wuhan Virus,” the one the Peoples’ Republic of China dumped on the world. Currently, we have 8,732 confirmed deaths with 83,313 recoveries. China continues leading the death toll with 3,122 followed by Italy with 2,978 and then Iran with 1,135 deaths. After them, Spain acknowledges 623 deaths followed by France with 148, then South Korea with 84, the United Kingdom with 71, then the Netherlands with 58, and the U.S. with 55 deaths. Meanwhile, after getting his butt clobbered in the previous day’s presidential primaries, Sen. Bernie Sanders announces the suspension of his presidential run. Thus, Joe Biden is the de facto winner of the nomination which means, who will contest him at the convention or even before? Will it be moronic Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York who seems to be on TV every flipping day acting as though he is the ‘shadow president’ or will it be Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama? Possibly, since Democrats OWE Donald Trump at least three years, perhaps the president should postpone elections until November 2024? On Wall Street, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes at 19,898.92, a drop of 1,338.46 or -6.30%. The S & P closes at 2,398.10, a drop of 131.09 or -5.18. Finally, the NASDAQ closes at 6,989.84, a drop of 344.94 or -4.70%.
- 2021 Thursday: DAY 58 of the Biden Regime. FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS UPDATE- North Korea calls nuclear talks with the ‘Joe Biden administration’ to be little more than a waste of their time. Furthermore, they say that IF Joe Biden doesn’t dump the harsh speech, Joe Biden won’t be getting much sleep at night for the next four years. They might consider speaking with ‘Joe Biden’ if he refrains from the hate speech against Kim Jong Un and discontinues the nasty rhetoric. Otherwise, Biden can shut the hell up. In answer, the Biden administration says it ‘will keep all options on the table when it comes to dealing with the North Koreans and will counter any threat the Kim regime poses to the rest of the Asia-Pacific Region.’
- 2021 Thursday A: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS UPDATE II: The Russians are not happy with Joe Biden. First, they demand that Joe Biden apologize for calling Vladimir Putin a ‘killer,’ and then when Joe Biden’s administration remains mum, they call their ambassador in Washington, D.C., to return home.[xiii] This is a slap to the face of Joe Biden personally and to the American people in general. It’s a good thing that Joe Biden didn’t say that ‘if Putin and I were in high school, I’d take his scrawny little ass behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.’ IF Joe had said something like that, we might be getting nuked by now but of course, Joe Biden lacks the testosterone to do something as brazenly stupid as that. Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘back and forth between Biden and Putin is increasingly childish.’ Stop it. Meanwhile, Moscow extends the house arrest for Alexei Navalny’s spokesperson, Kira Yarmysh.
- 2021 Thursday B: FOREIGN NEWS UPDATE/OVERSEAS III: In Kabul, Afghanistan, a bus carrying Afghan workers along a road runs smack dab into a roadside bomb planted by practitioners of the religion of peace. The resulting explosion claims the lives of four workers outright, injures another nine, and blows the bus to smithereens. One must love the ‘religion of peace!’ Next, as the Joe Biden administration meets with the Chi-Coms in Alaska, reports are that Beijing is going to pressure U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken- a close friend of the Chi-Coms- to remove all Trump era sanctions imposed upon them. This most likely is going to happen. Elsewhere, the UAW is upset because an automobile Ford Motor Company promised to manufacture in Ohio is heading for Mexico instead. Thank you, Biden administration, thank you dumb ass Richard Trumka for NOT putting labor squarely behind President Donald J. Trump. More job losses to come.
- 2021 Thursday C: BORDER NEWS UPDATE I: The people of the United States are decrying ‘Joe Biden’s assault on the southern border.’ As our country reels from the massive invasion of Third World illegal aliens who are coming here to suck off government’s teats, none of these people will assimilate and many of them are males of military age. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that ‘Joe Biden’s words and actions alone have created the border crisis.’ He also says that ‘when Joe Biden was running for president, he said he would open the borders and legalize millions of illegals so no one should be surprised now at what is happening along our border.’ (Note- we say it’s time to begin seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, to put in antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat obstacles beginning on our side of the river and then lay in minefields, foo gas pits, punji stake pits, and whatever else we can to protect our borders from the tidal wave of illegals. STOP THEM NOW!)
- 2021 Thursday D: BORDER NEWS UPDATE II: Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says that ‘Joe Biden is going to try to redeploy border funding to other programs,’ like WOKE bulls**t. Meanwhile, Mexico says it will help with the BORDER DISASTER if the United States provides aid with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine. Elsewhere, it’s clear that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is working on behalf of the illegal aliens and not the American people.[xiv] Elections have consequences, folks. The Biden administration is planning to legalize ALL DACA recipients as well as anyone who has worked in U.S. agricultural fields for as short a time as 180 days. BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL. NOW. It is better than hundreds of thousands of uneducated illegal aliens languishing in Joe Biden’s gulags. Send them back NOW. Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, demands that Secretary Mayorkas ‘change course now’ on the border.
- 2021 Thursday E: CHI-COM NEWS: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, is moving forward a bill that will strip compromised House Intelligence Committee member Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, a man who had a lengthy sexual affair with a Chi-Com female intelligence agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang. Leader McCarthy says there is NO way that Swalwell could get a security clearance in the private sector so he should not have one in the public sector. Swalwell is a security risk and increasingly erratic House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi will do nothing about it. (Note- it appears to me that her anti-Alzheimer’s drugs are not working very well- Goldie).
- 2021 Thursday F: POLLING AND ELECTIONS NEWS- a recent Rasmussen poll reports that 75-percent of the American people believe that VOTER ID is an essential tool with which to maintain fair and honest elections. Why then won’t the Democrats demand safe and secure elections rather than seeking to enfranchise illegal aliens, felons, sixteen-year-olds, and others incapable of voting to vote? This bull crap simply must stop. NOW.
- 2021 Thursday G: ATLANTA MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRES and associated ideas- even though Robert Aaron Long- the person that shot and killed five Korean women, Latinos, and one white male says he didn’t do it because they are Asian does not gain much traction in the media.[xv] We think his motive most likely was having watched the Grammys on Sunday night and seen all the whores and sluts prancing around that for a guy with a self-proclaimed sex addiction, he acted upon what he saw. The Democrats continue wailing about the uptick in anti-Asian violence of which, we have still seen incredibly little and what we have seen other than Mr. Long is black folks attacking Asians.[xvi] Still, the Asian-American community is screaming for support so congressional hearings looking into all the ‘anti-Asian violence’ are going to begin soon. Dr. Alan Dershowitz, noted legal scholar, says the easy availability of firearms put the gun into the hands of Mr. Long. How about we do something to help people with sex addictions in our highly sexualized society? (Note- Joe Biden and Kooky Kamala Harris are going to visit Georgia soon and are going to blast guns- again. STFU. Goldie). Anyhow, the Atlanta P.D. says the investigation into Mr. Long is FAR FROM OVER meaning they are seeking a racial angle. Oh- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Trump’s to blame for the shootings.’[xvii]
- 2021 Thursday H: U.S. Senate News- the U.S. Senates confirms the pro-China William Burns by a unanimous vote to become the nation’s next Central Intelligence Agency director. Wow. Even worse, the U.S. Senate confirms California Attorney-General Xavier Becerra by a vote of 50-49 (Senator Susan Collins, RINO-ME, voted ‘aye’) to become the next Health and Human Services secretary. Generally, someone with a medical background is sought for this post. Sadly, however, the only thing Becerra qualifies for is his love of abortion, abortion at all stages of fetal development and even post-birth. The man is an evil, evil ghoul. At least the people of California have gotten rid of him. No longer is he the Golden State’s problem; no, he’s now the nation’s problem. Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer was correct when he defended the legislative filibuster back in 2017 whereas now, Schumer lacks the balls to keep the left-wing of his party at bay. Schumer is LEFT-WING of his party.
- 2021 Thursday I: Miscellaneous Government News- The Republicans in Congress are concerned over HOW the Democrats plan on funding their (Green New Deal) ‘infrastructure program.’ Representative Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the Democrats will stick ‘the American workers, the middle class with paying for another multi-trillion-dollar bill.’ She also says that this scheme is their most expensive so far. Meanwhile, the House passes an extension on the Equal Rights Amendment despite furious pushback from the GOP. Next, in a ‘speech’ today, Joe Biden referred to “Kooky Kamala” Harris once again as “President Harris.” Dr. Jill Biden should be in prison for elder abuse. WTF. Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives passes a bill with which to award GOLD MEDALS to all Capitol Hill police officers who withstood the ‘insurrection of January 06, 2021.’ Wow. Go, Nance, go! Panderer.[xviii]
- 2021 Thursday J: WEATHER NEWS UPDATE- the National Weather Service issues severe warnings for the American Deep South. The NWS also says that much of the U.S. is going to be in the throes of an extended drought. WTF is going on in the atmosphere with all the chem trails? Something is occurring of which hardly anyone knows. We would LOVE to know what our government or worse- the globalist government- is doing to the world’s atmosphere.
- 2021 Thursday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- The Kansas state Senate passes a bill prohibiting trannys from playing in girls’ and women’s sports. It will advance to the GOP-controlled House in the state and then move to the governor’s desk. Next, Lt. General Michael Flynn’s former business partner, Bijan Rafiekan, found himself resentenced by an appeals court over whatever bogus crime with which he was charged. Next, Dan Bongino is going to assume Rush Limbaugh’s radio slot on Talk Radio. In other interesting news, Los Angeles County D.A. George Gascon admits to cutting 8,000 years of prison sentences given to L.A. criminals and this in just 100 days. We are NEVER visiting Los Angeles City or County ever again until this scurrilous POS is removed from office.
- 2021 Thursday L: GOP Miscellaneous News: a nonpartisan polling groups says that Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is the most effective U.S. senator. Next, another poll says that U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is the most popular SCOTUS justice among Republicans. Congratulations, Justice Thomas. Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he’s optimistic about Joe Biden doing the right thing with the Chi-Coms.
- 2021 Thursday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 121,585,388 confirmed cases, +583,289, 2,685,770, confirmed deaths, +10,249, and 68,888,923 confirmed recoveries, +253,755. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,846,814 confirmed cases, up 58,650 from yesterday’s reporting, 543,481 confirmed deaths, UP 1,177, and 116,340,711 confirmed recoveries. Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump. Time to impeach this wretched, disorientated slobbering POS. NOW. NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 215,004 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
- 2021 Thursday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,632,133 confirmed cases, 57,016 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for more than a week now). Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 354,828 confirmed cases, 5,212 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., aka the federal district, Washington, D.C., aka Fort Pelosi: currently, they have 42,892 confirmed cases, 1,046 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries thanks to Mayor Muriel Bowser. Woof. Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 824,926 confirmed cases, 6,062 confirmed deaths, and 793,723 confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other country- Romania, the home of Vlad the Impaler, aka Count Dracula of literary fame: 881,159 cases of the old the Communist China Condition, 21,877 confirmed deaths and 794,950 confirmed recoveries. Meanwhile, new reports say that New York health authorities were horrified at Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s order to return COVID-19-positive patients back into nursing homes (and yet, they did NOTHING. They are as guilty as the governor who, by the way, has another accuser, a female reporter who says he made her feel uncomfortable).
- 2021 Thursday O: Boy! Dreadful day on the markets now that BIG BUSINESS realizes there is going to be inflation, possibly, stagflation, loss of jobs, low interest rates, all the gains made in 2021 are LOST thanks to “Pro-China Joe” Biden. Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,862.30, DOWN 153.07 points (-0.46%). Next, the NASDAQ: 13,116.17, DOWN 409.03 points (-3.02%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,915.46, DOWN 58.66 points (-1.48%). The price of GOLD is $1,732.60 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.08 per troy ounce, -0.27 (-1.03%). The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.00 per troy oz, -9.50 (-0.78%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.04 (-0.94%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,662.80 per troy oz, +124.50 (+4.90%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.00 per troy oz, +45.00 (+2.11%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.59 per barrel, -0.41 (-0.68%) Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.49. As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018. In Azerbaijani Manat, one greenback equals 1.69. Last week, there were 770,000 first-time unemployment applications last week which is a reverse from the previous week. Claims are going up, NOT going down. The national unemployment rate for February 2021 was 6.2-percent nationwide.
- 2021 Thursday P: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.871 per gallon, $3.580 in Hawaii, and $3.301 in Washington state. Time for ALL Red States and portions of states to secede from the Communist States of America. Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,066,880,604,872 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. Cloward and Piven running amok. The country is going to implode.
- 2022 Friday: What will happen today…

[i] We hope to do the music of all the soul legends one day including Wilson Pickett among others.
[ii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012. Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013. At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends. Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.
[iii] 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.
[iv] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014. Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates. You will be glad you did. Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker. When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them. We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.
[v] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030. We hope you will remain vigilant.
[vi] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018. Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands. All are fabulous.
[vii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016. This included the members’ solo projects. We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor. Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces
[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.
[ix] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher. We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.
[x] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012. You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.
[xi] Not sure when we will do the music of Blues Image but when we do, you will be the first to know.
[xii] We look forward to promoting the music of Chuck Berry in its entirety but are not sure as to when. Stay tuned.
[xiii] Apparently, Vladimir Putin is challenging Joe Biden to a public debate. This is something we would love to have front row seats to watch!
[xiv] We learn today that at least 3 million illegal aliens are going to be legalized immediately just as we learned that all illegal aliens deported under the Trump administration who were here living in the shadows for three years will be invited back. We also learn that the Biden administration will NOT deport any illegal alien child who manages to walk through Central America, up through Mexico, and somehow cross our border will NEVER be deported- DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
[xv] Interesting note- Atlanta Police Department Captain Jay Baker lost his position as spokesperson for the department today because he relayed to the press what the suspect told him, that he ‘shot those people because of his sex addiction.’ Captain Baker did not sing the song of INCREASED VIOLENCE AGAINST ASIAN-AMERICANS, OH MY, MY! Identity politics strikes once again and that ho, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is in the midst of it.
[xvi] The incredible thing in all of this is that Democrats despise Asian-Americans, they demonstrate it through holding them back in institutions of higher learning like colleges and universities. The Dems do not like the fact that Asians are extremely industrial, successful, and do not need government generally to survive and thus the Democrats wage war on them around the clock. Now that they can use their grief to their advantage, they love the Asians now but when things go back to normal, they will cut them loose the same way Democrats cut Cindy Sheehan lose after she thought she could primary Nancy Pelosi in her California House district race. Democrats are USERS, they care little for the people they use, it’s who and what they are.
[xvii] Here’s something- Donald J. Trump’s personal wealth FELL by $700 million the four years he was president. Mr. Trump is the first American president to LOSE money while in office. The man is a patriot.
[xviii] The ‘January 06, 2021, commission’ by which the government seeks to ‘investigate the Capitol Hill riots, aka THE TRUMP-INSPIRED INSURRECTION, is being held up by…you guessed it…partisanship.
