  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.

  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971 and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on October 22, 2021.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.

2021 Thursday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- a new report hit the news cycle today suggesting that Health and Human Services, an agency headed by Secretary Xavier Becerra, a man who never met an illegal alien he did not want to protect or a baby to abort, is paying travel expenses for (NAMBLA) and other groups to come pick up illegal alien brats and then take them elsewhere in the country. Shady foster care services are making BIG BUCKS right now caring for illegal alien minors.

  74. 2016 Friday: Mayor Boris Johnson of London is peeved with U.S. President Barack Obama.  The 44th president has this effect on people.  Regarding Brexit, Mayor BoJo, also a member of the British Cabinet, says of President Obama that he is both ‘hypocritical and inconsistent’ in putting in his two cents regarding the desire of the British people to undergo Brexit.  What right does the Bamster have telling another country- especially our oldest ally- to NOT do something.

  85. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– a new report hit the news cycle today suggesting that Health and Human Services, an agency headed by Secretary Xavier Becerra, a man who never met an illegal alien he did not want to protect or a baby to abort, is paying travel expenses for (NAMBLA) and other groups to come pick up illegal alien brats and then take them elsewhere in the country.  Shady foster care services are making BIG BUCKS right now caring for illegal alien minors.  Meanwhile, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, calls Joe Biden on the spot demanding that the feeble old coot declare a “CRISIS” along the southern border.  Speaking of calling a ‘crisis’ a ‘crisis,’ Politico has forbidden its employees from labeling the southern border crisis a ‘crisis.’  Sad.  (Note- Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden won’t visit the border, so he won’t be forced into acknowledging we have a BORDER CRISIS.’   In other border news, Congresswoman Lisa McClain, R-MI 10th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is aiding the Mexican drug cartels by taking the illegal alien kids and distributing them across the country.’  Can we stop doing this, Joe?   Congressman Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, points out that resistance in Arizona to mass illegal alien invasion shows there are problems in the White House.
  86. 2021 Thursday G: Earth Day Climate Communism News– Conservative commentators with the balls to call out Joe Biden point out that his so-called ‘climate summit’ is little more than a gift to the Chi-Coms who will agree to anything and then forge ahead with their plans.  Who can blame them?  Since it’s ‘Earth Day,’ Joe Biden rolls out sweeping new climate goals that are little more than open doorways for communism to consume both the country and the world.  Thanks, Joe.   Speaking of our drooling commander-in-chief, Climate Change protesters pushed pink wheelbarrows full of steer manure through the streets of Washington, D.C. and dumped them out in front of the White House.  They claim Old Joe is full of s**t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, it’s another Earth Day so it’s another opportunity for angry teenager Greta Thunberg to lambaste the world’s politicians once again.  Young lady, why don’t you row your boat to Beijing and tell comrade Xi Jinping how HE is responsible for f**king up the world?  You might find yourself vacationing in Xinjiang Province.   
  87. 2021 Thursday H: Joe Biden News I– In an interesting turn of events, Joe Biden is expected to call the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  This is going to drive the Turks berserk.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden is talking about raising the capital gains tax to 39.6-to-43.3-percent which collapsed the stock markets today (see Thursday 2021 D) and will kill all further business development and progress.  Thanks, Joe, thanks.  Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is set to speak with Guatemalan officials on Monday, seeking ways to ‘fix’ the ongoing illegal alien crisis.
  88. 2021 Thursday I: Political News I– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says he ‘won’t budge on the Senate filibuster.’  Next, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is going to visit Iowa on June 29, 2021, to help fellow GOP politicians in election bids.  Some believe this is testing the waters for a run in 2024, something with which, we don’t concur.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill that would make Washington, D.C., a state, something the U.S. Constitution expressly forbids.  It moves onto the U.S. Senate.
  89. 2021 Thursday J: Crime And Punishment News– Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a pair of bills into law today that protect motorists from ‘protesters.’  Not long after he did that, there was an INSURRECTION in the State House in which, a bunch of BLM supporters stormed the building and had to be tossed out on their butts by security.  Excellent.   Next, the POS Islamist from Syria[xviii], let in on the refugee program under President Barack Hussein Obama who shot up the King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, is being charged with having a high-capacity magazine.  Say it ain’t so!  Next, Columbus, Ohio, following the death of a 16-year-old Ma’ Khia Bryant was shot dead by a police officer yesterday as she was in the act of stabbing another young girl, protests and riots are occurring in the city, especially after troglodyte LeBron “Fecal Matter” James poured gasoline all over the fire yesterday with a threatening tweet against the officer involved in the action.  Look, when you are threatening someone with an 8-eight-inch blade and you are overheard saying, “I’M GOING TO STAB THE F**K OUT OF YOU, BITCH,” was the officer supposed to stand aside and watch the deed done?  Enough with this bulls**t.  Moving on, Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel program that SEXUAL ASSAULTS in New York City this past couple of months are UP by…get this…322-percent.  Gee whiz.  WTF is Mayor Bill “The Blank” Di Blasio doing to halt this horrendous sexual crime wave?  Nothing.  Finally, the POS Bangladeshi that tried to carry out a suicide bombing in the Times Square subway station received a life term in federal prison today.   
  90. 2021 Thursday K: Supreme Court News– On a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects limits imposed on life sentences for juveniles.  This led to Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor slamming her fellow justices- but Brett Kavanaugh in particular- noting that the newer justices are willing to overturn precedent extremely easy.   Speaking of liberals, Democrats are demanding (don’t they always) that Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from a donor privacy case.  C’mon, Dems NEVER recuse themselves from anything.   Speaking of the nation’s high court, GOP senators are speaking out against the Democratic Party’s twisted scheme of packing the court.[xix]
  91. 2021 Thursday L: Miscellaneous News– The Department of Homeland Security reveals yet another cybersecurity hack into U.S. systems, blaming the Russkies when everyone knows it’s the Chi-Coms doing the evil deeds.  Next, the U.S. Senate passes a bill making it a crime to practice Asian Hate.  Folks, the Dems must tell the BLACK DEMOCRATS to stop attacking the ASIAN DEMOCRATS.  Everyone knows what has been going on, black Americans assaulting Asian Americans and for what?  Did the Dems mobilize their shock troops to commit these heinous acts?  We think so.  Next, former aide to former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, Bridget Kelly, says the ‘big oaf is unfit to ever become president.’  He engineered ‘Bridgegate,’ and Ms. Kelly underwent two criminal trials, was facing prison until the Supreme Court tossed this bogus case.   Elsewhere, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, is scheduled to give the rebuttal to Joe Biden’s upcoming ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress. 
  92. 2021 Thursday M: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Late last night, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you know of whom we speak) carried out a suicide car-bombing outside a luxury hotel in Quetta, Pakistan.  The resulting explosion killed four and wounded at least 11.  Supposedly, the Chi-Com ambassador was on site, so no one knows for sure whether he was the target, or it was just another day at the office for the jihadists.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is putting forth a bill designed to crack down on People’s Republic of China infiltrating our institutions of higher learning.  Good.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, slams the enfeebled Joe Biden over his crackpot plans for rejoining with the Iranians in the deeply flawed JCPOA.   Moving on, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggests the U.S. could give eventual U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens willing to plant trees.  How about they plant them in YOUR country?).
  93. 2021 Thursday N: Foreign News / Overseas News II– A new report suggests that the Russians are suspected of launching directed energy attacks on U.S. military personnel.  Okay, uh, when claims of Vladimir Putin placing bounties atop the heads of U.S. soldiers led to demands that President Donald J. Trump go to war with the Russkies, how come the very same voices aren’t demanding that Joe Biden go to war?  Speaking of the Russians, it appears they have blinked and have pulled their forces back from the eastern border of Ukraine.  Wow.  Joe scared them.  In other ‘foreign news,’ a team of scientists are urging Congress to release more information on UFOs after one incident comes to light in which, a UFO going along at 120 miles per hour over Puerto Rico suddenly splits in two and heads off in different directions.  Folks, we have a problem on this planet.  What are we going to do about it?  (Note- this incident occurred back in 2013 so why are we just hearing about it now?)  Finally, at the upcoming meeting of House Republicans, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that President Donald J. Trump WON’T be addressing the group.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 568,861 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,106 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 457 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  100. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Moscow now says that they are going to conquer all of eastern Ukraine as well as southern Ukraine so they can then focus on intimidating Moldova into submission.   Meanwhile, a new report informs the world that Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites fought off a Russian jamming attack over Ukraine the other day.   Satellite images are showing mass graves surrounding Mariupol in eastern Ukraine holding as many as 9,000 or more corpses.  Whether they are Ukrainian civilians or slain Russians is unclear; however, the defenders within the city continue to put up a defense which is driving the Russians and their mercenaries insane.
  101. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The families of the lost sailors who went down with the Moskva when it was sunk by Ukrainian forces last week are demanding answers from Vladimir Putin and his military regime.  They want to know WHY their sons and daughters went down with the ship in an unnecessary war.   Things are growing much more tense in Russia as the FSB is scooping up critics of the Russo-Ukrainian War such as opposition activist, Vladimir Kara-Murza Jr.  A criminal case has been opened against him and he could soon be staying with Alexei Navalny in the Siberian slammer.   Speculation abounds about Russian President Vladimir Putin as a recent series of photos shows him speaking with his defense minister. His right foot is tapping feverishly, he grips the table with one hand, his face, hands, and neck are bloated, and he looks worse than Adolf Hitler did in 1945.  Regarding Hitler, his personal doctor, Dr. Theodor Morell was injecting the Fuhrer with 75 different drugs per day including methamphetamine so what is Putin’s excuse?  The Joe Biden ‘disease,’ i.e., advance senility?
  102. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 385 days and it’s been 299 days since she arrived on scene to do her job.  What a tragedy.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is $713,581,700.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the two took their oaths to defend the Constitution of the United States and the American people is $42,459,387,443.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since the year began is a shocking 1,139,758.  Next, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is a shockingly low 46,571,415.  We suspect the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is a travesty no sane country can withstand. Next, a Texas National Guard member was swept away attempting to rescue struggling illegals drowning in the Rio Grande River.  The search continues for the unfortunate guardsman.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  104. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News II– British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is no slacker, and he says that ‘next week, the Brits will be reopening their embassy in Kyiv.’  Wow.  Where the hell is Joe Biden?  (Note- Joe is worried more about trannys and their rights than he is in promoting and defending the United States).   Elsewhere, after back-to-attack attacks on U.S. troops, diplomats from Iraq and Iran to meet. However, President Volodymyr Zelensky says the ‘U.S. most definitely will be reopening their embassy very soon.’  Next, after the Ukrainian postal service debuts a new anti-Russian postage stamp online, a cyberattack shuts them down.

  110. 2022 Friday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Gallup poll says that Joe Biden’s popularity rating is the second lowest in presidential history.  While we suggest that Barack Hussein Obama’s was worst, we know that President Richard M. Nixon rates the lowest.  In other devastating news to the so-called ‘Catholic president,’ Catholic League President William Anthony Donahue is slamming President Biden over his embrace of ‘transgender mania.’  Yikes, Joe.  How much worse can it get for you?
  111. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– Despite a growing rebellion among Democrats and red state governors going for broke to end the border invasion, the Biden regime says that it’s still going to end Title 42 on May 23, 2022,  whether they like it or they don’t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, struggling Joe Biden arrived on the West Coast today to do some fundraising and not to discuss defending our borders.  In Portland, Oregon, Joe Biden gave a rambling, stumbling speech to a tiny crowd and in his remarks, said that ‘Americans should stop feeling sorry for themselves’ regarding inflation and unaffordable prices.  Then in Seattle, he talked about climate change before ambling off into the hands of his handlers.  Where was the Easter bunny?  To cap things off, Joe grasped the lectern, leaned forward to the almost nonexistent crowd, begin whispering, then mumbling, and finally stuttering and stammering about how the GOP has become the MAGA party.  (Note- look for Joe to outlaw the Republican Party ahead of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections).
  112. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– In Washington, D.C., today, another busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in the nation’s capital.  Dump ‘em on the White House lawn.  They should not need ID there anymore than they need ID along the U.S.-Mexico border.   Next, after the BIG SCARE at the U.S. Capitol yesterday, the FAA says it failed to inform the Capitol Hill Police Department of the parachute jump into Washington Nationals Stadium.  As you recall, a parachutist caused mass panic at the Capitol.  Was it the return of the INSURRECTIONISTS?  Oh, God, say it ain’t so.
  113. 2022 Friday S: Political News I– Democrats do what Democrats do best: use the system to topple their foes.  Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, appeared in administrative court in Atlanta, Georgia, today where her Democrat opponents are trying to remove her from the primary ballot because (1) they hate her and (2) they know they can’t beat her.  He enemies are attempting to tie her to the false flag operation authorized by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Charged with no crime, the Dems still seek to remove her from the ballot.  Her attorney informed the hearing that all she did was to exercise her First Amendment rights.  The congresswoman says that all she was doing was asking people to come and to attend a peaceful march.
  114. 2022 Friday T: Political News II– Randi Weingarten- well-known socialist head of the American Federation of Teachers says that ‘parental rights laws in education are the way in which wars are started.’  Wow.  We suspect Ms. Weingarten may be going the way of Jimmy Hoffa soon.  Know when you’ve reached the apex of your career and then bow out gracefully; otherwise, you could end up in a landfill in the Garden State.
  115. 2022 Friday U: Political News III– In dire news for U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd district, Rep. “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney released audio from around January 06, 2022, in which, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ prompted Leader McCarthy to say that he was going to suggest to President Donald J. Trump that ‘IF impeached again, he should resign.’  This first came up yesterday and Rep. McCarthy denied ever saying it; however, today, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ Cheney got even with the California congressman by releasing the audio damning him as the anti-Trump RINO POS that he is.  Republicans in the Golden State’s 23rd district tell us they will be voting for Republican Jay Obernolte in June’s primary.  Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax that ‘McCarthy will probably have to go,’ that ‘Trump will most likely push him out,’ and that the ‘only way McCarthy could survive is that he looks better in comparison than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, RINO-KY.[xxx]
  116. 2022 Friday V: Political News IV– Former President Barack Hussein Obama once again has to add his two bits to the conversation.  He says that Meta-Facebook and Twitter are private companies and don’t have to practice freedom of speech.  Wow.  Next, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, shedding tears while speaking about the trauma she claims to have suffered on January 06, 2021- remember, she was in another building several blocks away from the Capitol- says, ‘this is no joke- they’re coming back.’  Well, this time we hope the ‘insurrectionists find YOU.’ Moving on, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st district, says that Twitter ‘must release data on Hunter Biden’s activities and his laptop.’
  117. 2022 Friday W: Political News V– Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st district, says, ‘it’s not right for the Dems trying to force fellow GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, off the primary ballot.  In other news, former ambassador to Germany and to the United Nations Ric Grenell says that ‘the Dems, Joe Biden, and ‘Merkelism’ in Germany’ set the war in Ukraine in motion.
  118. 2022 Friday X: Political News VI– Greg Kelly on Newsmax played an audio clip of former Governor John Kasich, RINO-OH, and former ‘2016 presidential primary candidate’ said on his radio show, Kasich and Klepper, that following losing the nomination to businessman Donald J. Trump, he broke down and started blubbering like the crybaby he is.
  119. 2022 Friday Y: Lawsuit and Legal News– The punk who started an altercation with heavyweight boxing champion “Iron Mike” Tyson on an airliner the other day has lawyered up while “Iron Mike’s” legal representatives say the putz was bothering him throughout the flight and then finally threw a water bottle at the famous fighter.  This led Mr. Tyson to turn around and punch the dimwit into early senility.  It’s a cut-and-dry case for Mr. Tyson.  Lock the punk up for instigating a fight he was never going to win.   Meanwhile, Tennessee has passed a new law that will force drunk drivers- guilty of killing a parent while driving while intoxicated- to pay support to the kids of the parents they kill.  This is absolutely amazing.  Good for you!
  120. 2022 Friday Z: Big Tech News– Netflix, reeling from a precipitous drop in stock value through the loss of hundreds of thousands of subscribers said today they will curtail spending in an effort to woo young people back to their crumbling site.  We suspect they will go the way of the ‘video store,’ relegated to the dustbin of history.  Meanwhile, Florida passed the law stripping Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges which led to a precipitous fall in their stock prices.  All Disney has to do is to just shut the hell up.  Be neutral and tell your employees to be neutral, too, while on the job.  Outside of work, if you want to prance around in pink tutus defending ‘transgender rights,’ go for it but stop with supporting the indoctrination of kids ages kindergarten to Third Grade.  Enough is flipping enough, already.  Now, your employer owes billions of dollars in taxes which means some of you are going to get the ax.
  121. 2022 Friday AA: Big Tech News II– New data shows that BIG TECH censored stories critical of Joe Biden 600-plus times over a two-year-cycle.  Why would anyone be surprised?  We know they did everything imaginable to cover up the truth of Hunter Biden’s laptop story which would have swayed the election for sure.  (We still believe that President Donald J. Trump won the 2020 Presidential Election by amazing numbers).
  122. 2022 Friday BB: New York State News– Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner resigned today following video of the arrest of an eight-year-old shoplifter.  Passersby attempted to interfere with the police officers and once again the media is in a stage of outrage screaming and yelling racism.  If a family member would discipline the brat at home, he would not be out shoplifting but no, they permit the kid to run amok and then when he’s caught, the media and their left-wing allies turn it into yet another reason for social unrest across the nation.  Put the kid in with the Cho-Mos.  He won’t shoplift again.
  123. 2022 Friday CC: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1757 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line: 07, 28, 29, 58, 59, and Mega 10.  Out of 51,626 winning tickets, the highest winners were 27 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $513 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next archival release Rick Danko’s record company put out is “Live at the Iron Hose, Northampton 1995 with Blondie Chapin and Ed Kaercher.”  This album came out on June 07, 2011, as have his other releases but unlike his ‘solo’ efforts, he has the phenomenal Blondie Chapin (guitars/vocals of Beach Boys fame among others) and Ed Kaercher (guitars, vocals) with which to give it a more electrified sound.  There are 20 tunes, many of which have been culled from the Band’s catalog and which are a joy to hear.  Sadly, they should have been able to have slipped in “Sail On Sailor,” one of the all-time great 1970s Beach Boys albums performed by Blondie Chapin.  We hope you will seek this one out as Danko- troubled star that he was- could deliver the musical goods with the emotional voice denoting fragility, yet strength at the same time.  Great music on a great album by one of the all-time greats- check it out now.  Enjoy.

56. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2022

2021 Thursday: Day 37 of the Biden Regime- Congressman James Panetta, D-CA 20th congressional district, and nearly two dozen other House Democrats are pushing decrepit ‘Old Joe’ Biden to give up sole authority to launch nukes should the need to do so arises. The Democrats want a cabal of the president, vice president, and House speaker to make the determination which will delay any response America might have against an impending nuclear attack. Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, says this is ‘weird.’

  58. 2015 Wednesday: A jury awarded a Texas-based technology-licensing company, Smartflash, a whopping $532.9 million payout from Apple because it infringed upon data management software patents, something the mega-company claimed it did not do because the patents were invalid and that it NEVER used them in any of its products.  Oh, well.
  59. 2016 Thursday: The 10th GOP presidential primary debate occurs in Houston, Texas, with CNN moderating the event.  Impartial moderators, eh?  Nope, never when Republicans are on stage.  Meanwhile, the European Union announces it’s going to impose an arms embargo on Saudi Arabia.

  62. 2019 Monday: Following an assault by Internet trolls and Bots attacking the movie, “Captain Marvel,” the film review site Rotten Tomatoes makes ways as to how fans can rate and comment on movies.  In Vietnam, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrives ahead of the upcoming summit between his country and President Donald J. Trump of the United States; he takes in the sights.  Elsewhere, peace talks between the U.S. and the Taliban begin in Qatar.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: President Trump returns from India and announces he has asked for $2.5 billion with which to combat the Coronavirus in the United States.  Senate Minority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says it’s ‘not enough.  Currently, there are 80,000 cases worldwide.  The president should have asked for more.’  Meanwhile, the Democratic 2020 Presidential Debates continue with Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Joe Biden, and Mayor Pete.   
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: Italy is now beset by Chinese Virus cases as the ‘VID has infected nearly 100 more which drives their cases up to 322 what with a death toll of 11- and Italy told its citizens to be “WOKE” and go out and hug Chinese tourists.  Look at what it gets you- sick people and dead folks.  Austria and Croatia report their first cases of coronavirus while in Spain, tourists are being locked up in hotels to prohibit the spread of this disease.  In Iran as the outbreak continues to worsen, the country’s health minister tests positive for this evil disease. Switzerland, Algeria, and other nations around the world are taking the opportunity to seal off air travel to communist China such as Canada.  Meanwhile, the government of Sweden demands the Chi-Com ambassador meet with them over its sentencing of a Swedish bookseller in the PRC to a decade in the slammer for ‘espionage.’
  65. 2021 Thursday: Day 37 of the Biden Regime- Congressman James Panetta, D-CA 20th congressional district, and nearly two dozen other House Democrats are pushing decrepit ‘Old Joe’ Biden to give up sole authority to launch nukes should the need to do so arises.  The Democrats want a cabal of the president, vice president, and House speaker to make the determination which will delay any response America might have against an impending nuclear attack.  Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, says this is ‘weird.’  The question is, WHY?  Speaking of this lunacy, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, quipped, “I don’t think Joe Biden’s in charge.’  We concur.
  66. 2021 Thursday A: Newsmax’ White House correspondent John Gizzi says that Neera Tanden- Joe Biden’s pick to head the White House Office of Management and Budget is prepared to withdraw her confirmation seeing as how she’s receiving pushback from both Senate Republicans and Democrats.   Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, says he’s not voting for this skank.  Meanwhile, former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm by a vote of 64-35 is confirmed as the next U.S. secretary of Energy.   Confirming this Chi-Com lover gives Beijing and OPEC a big boost in their drive to monopolize energy as well as to collapse U.S. domestic energy production. 
  67. 2021 Thursday B: Conservative lawmakers are asking for a timeline as to when House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi plans on removing the fences around the White House and the Capitol Building as well as when National Guard troops will stop patrolling the streets of Washington, D.C.  The Democrats have transformed parts of the nation’s capital into a Baghdad-style “Green Zone,” of sorts, a heavily-fortified zone.  We believe the troops are there and the fences are up because the Dems KNOW they stole the 2020 Presidential Election.
  68. 2021 Thursday C: Black Lives Matter is launching a ‘survival fund’ of sorts with $3 million as the Democrats in Congress continue dragging out the COVID-19, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, relief fund.   House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has snarked ‘we feed them, Wolf (Blitzer), we feed them.  Do you feed them?” She was referring to ‘feeding’ the country’s impoverished and its illegal aliens.  We don’t want you to feed us, you senile old witch, we want the economy to reopen.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday D: Tony Perkins has told Newsmax TV the Dems want to force ALL Americans into participating in ABORTIONS by seeking to use taxpayer dollars to fund this abomination not just here in the United States but around the world.  In so doing, it taints the souls of everyone which is not right.  It’s time for Pope Francis to boot Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and every other Catholic-in-Name-Only (CINO) from the church.  Excommunicate them, Pope Francis, excommunicate these murdering scumbags NOW.   In other liberal Democrat Party news, Congressman Sean Maloney, D-NY 18th congressional district, claims Democrats are supportive of socialism and that there are no socialist Democrats.  Good try.  Finally, people are flooding out of the woodwork now to accuse imploding New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, accusing him of sexual abuse, harassment, and mistreatment.  YOU reap what you sow, you POS!
  70. 2021 Thursday E: CPAC plans to honor Rush Limbaugh.  CPAC Chair Matt Schlapp says that President Donald J. Trump knows his speech this upcoming Sunday is an ‘important reset’ for his future in GOP politics.  Meanwhile, the GOP is pushing back on Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s call for a ‘riot commission’ to look into the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Pelosi wants to tar-and-feather Trump supporters with the riot engineered by the Democrats, but we are not going to permit them to get away with this outrageous behavior.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: In upcoming Summer Olympics news, the delayed Olympic torch relay is going to have fans, but NO cheering will be allowed.  Meanwhile, the IOC says that Brisbane, Australia, is the preferred site for the 2032 Summer Olympics. 
  72. 2021 Thursday G: The Justice Department’s top watchdog is investigating claims by a Boeing engineer of being surveilled by the FBI over claims the individual was spying for Beijing.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Joe Biden’s pick to be U.S. Trade Representative- Katherine Tai- says, ‘Chi-Coms both our rivals and our friends.’  Yet another pro-Chi-Com hack in the Biden administration.   In other news, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signs into law a bill abolishing cash bail for ALL criminal defendants awaiting trial.  Wow.  Thugs are going to be running amok in the streets of the Windy City.  Oh, wait, thugs are already running amok there. 
  73. 2021 Thursday H: Vice President Kamala Harris is now encouraging black folks to rush out and get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We recall when YOU said NOT to get the vaccine, you know, before you became VP, so what’s up with the reversal?  Our very own Bea O’Malley has said, ‘any time white liberals tell black folks to do something for their own good, it never works out that way.’  Even though you aren’t white, Kamala, you may as well be seeing as how you lack the street creds of a legit black American.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, France says it’s going to impose ‘localized lockdowns on areas infected with the Chi-Com virus rather than lock down the entire country.’ 
  74. 2021 Thursday I: New York State prosecutors now have President Donald J. Trump’s tax records.  We suspect it’s going to be a DRY well.  Still, it’s going to be fun watching them twist, turn, and wet their pants as they try to get some dirt on President Donald J. Trump.  In other interesting news, five counties in Oregon want to secede from that crackpot state and join with Idaho.  We have a suggestion- how about reviving the drive to create the state of Jefferson?  That concept featured counties in Washington and Oregon east of the Cascades forming their own state with possibly a few of California’s northern counties.  People in these areas are deeply conservative whereas the coastal portions of those states are full of rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth lunatics.  Hell, the county of Kern in California should become its own state.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: This week, there were 737,000 new jobless claims which is down from the previous week.  GDP has been revised up although it equates with what the country had back in 1946 following World War II.  Meanwhile, the FCC auctions off 5G airwaves bringing in $81 billion with ATT and Verizon being the big winners.  Elsewhere, GameStop is making another run today.   In other economic news, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, blasts the ‘Joe Biden’ COVID-19 Relief Bill as being little more than a socialist wish list, something we contend is a Democratic-Socialist ‘wet dream.’
  76. 2022 Friday: Please, stick around for the latest news of the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album Fairport Convention released was the group’s next archival live album, “Evanston 1975- the Illinois Broadcast,” on July 21, 1974.  Recorded at a radio station, this was a glorious effort as it featured Sandy Denny back in the fold.   Besides Ms. Denny on vocals and piano, the band features (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars and vocals) (3) Jerry Donahue (lead guitar and backing vocals) (4) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars) and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano).  Each song is unique, the overall sound ostentatious, and all we can say is that we wholly recommend this album to fans of both the blog and of the band.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and then add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did- we guarantee it.

  59. 2019 Monday: On this date, Chinese authorities on the mainland in conjunction with law enforcement in Hong Kong are working hard to bring the illegal protests to an end.  Currently, the authorities have surrounded a university in the former British crown colony and are trying to arrest every rioter seeking to escape their dragnet.  Meanwhile, Mayor Pete Buttigieg[x] of South Bend, Indiana, seeking to win the 2020 nomination of the Democratic Party finds himself leading the polls in Iowa on this date.  Wow.    This, of course, sets off his opponents seeking the nomination and far-left loser Julian Castro heads to the mics to blast Buttigieg.  Elsewhere, Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell, the first to abandon the race for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination becomes the butt of jokes around the world.  While being interviewed by Chris Matthews on MSNBC, the congressman in mid-sentence is heard to rip a LOUD FART[xi] on live TV.  He denies he did it, but the evidence is there.        
  60. 2020 Wednesday: Although most major news outlets, Democrats, and anti-Trump RINOs have called the election for “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, Las Vegas bookmakers have not.  Meanwhile, votes for President Donald J. Trump continue turning up in various battleground states but in Michigan, a setback occurred when county election workers first refused to certify the elections in the Detroit area until they came under verbal assault and threatened physical assault.  They quickly certified the results and sent them up the ladder to the Michigan secretary of state.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the House GOP leaders vote to retain the same officers in the lower chamber of Congress while initial reports say the Dems might keep current House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi in her position.  How this can be true after they lost beaucoup seats after being promised of the MASSIVE VICTORIES to come is beyond us.  However, what is also beyond us is the fact that the GOP knocked out one Democrat House incumbent after another and we are still to believe that President Donald J. Trump lost his re-election bid?  Say what?
  61. 2020 Wednesday A: The Department of Justice charges seven people for committing fraud on the U.S. government by scamming the Paycheck Protection Program out of $16 million.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump fires Christopher Krebs, a Trump appointee to head the elections security division at the Department of Homeland Security after he proclaimed, ‘NO election shenanigans have occurred in the 2020 Presidential Election.’  Elsewhere, CNN’s famed foreign correspondent, the highly biased Christine Amanpour expressed regret for having used the name of “President Donald J. Trump and his followers” in connection with Kristallnacht.”  That’s nice, Ms. Amanpour, you anti-Semitic bigot.   Finally, we learn that the Durham Probe into the Democrats, the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Obama administration continues.  IF Trump should lose, so what?  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he is doing his best to withdraw 25,000 American troops from the Middle East before the year’s end.
  62. 2020 Wednesday B: Pfizer- not to be outdone by Moderna- says their COVID-19 vaccine is 95-percent or more effective.  However, given billions of dollars by the U.S. government to develop the vaccine in record time to provide 100 million doses of the vaccine by year’s end has now reneged and says it will only provide 20 million doses while sending the other 80 million doses abroad.  Good Lord!  WTF is wrong with American companies?  Oh, wait, Pfizer donated BIG BUCKS to the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  Go figure.
  63. 2020 Wednesday C: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 56,024,130 confirmed cases, UP by 690,756 cases, 1,345,639 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,249 deaths, and 35,969,240 confirmed recoveries, UP by 356,120 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 11,546,233 confirmed cases, UP by 177,590 new cases, 253,423 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,100 new deaths, and 6,095,958 confirmed recoveries, UP by 58,978 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 326,200 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and 315,314 confirmed recoveries. 
  64. 2020 Wednesday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,058,125 confirmed cases, 18,364 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,755 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 140,942 confirmed cases, 2,686 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Virginia, the home of Democratic corruption, elected officials who dress in blackface or who have committed sexual assaults: 208,833 confirmed number of cases, 3,860 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam for concealing the number of recoveries- yet another left-wing liberal POS politician.
  65. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,438.42, DOWN 344.93 points (-1.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,801.60, DOWN 97.74 points (-0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,567.79, DOWN 41.74 points (-1.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,871.00 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $24.40 per troy ounce, -0.53 (-0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.10 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,354.00 per troy oz, +27.50 (+1.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.62 per barrel, -0.20 (-0.48%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.
  66. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto #3509 with a jackpot of $7 million at stake: 01, 02, 16, 27, 32, and Mega 18.  One person had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $27,123.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #795 with a jackpot of $179 million: 04, 05, 17, 43, 52, and Powerball 05.  The highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,296. 
  67. 2020 Wednesday G: Running unopposed for another term as speaker of the House, Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wins to the shock of many.  It demonstrates how chicken-s**t the Democrats in the House are that they are afraid of challenging the 80-year-old, mostly senile, incoherent speaker seeing as how she has produced the slimmest ‘majority’ in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives losing 12 incumbent seats and gaining NONE.  Democrats boot her out NOW!
  68. 2021 Thursday: Stay tuned for tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup: the New England Patriots at the Atlanta Falcons.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After floundering about for a while, Sandy Denny’s husband discovered- like other family members of deceased artists- that the family of Sandy Denny along with her record label compiled a ‘best of’ collection for the ill-fated artist that came out on June 15, 1987: “The Best of Sandy Denny.”  The album features a collection of 16 glorious tracks running from her earliest days through her association with Fairport Convention to Fotheringay to Fairport Convention again and onto her final solo career.  We hope you will investigate this one for yourselves, give it a good listen, and then consider adding it to your growing collection of music from this devoted vocalist and songwriter.  You will be so glad you did.  Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 18, 2021, BLOG POST #4,256

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Wednesday, November 18, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:   

Everything the Democrats claim as TRUTH is little more than a LIE- NO, they did not win the 2020 Presidential Election, NO, humankind is NOT RESPONSIBLE for Climate Change, and the Chi-Coms are NOT our friends

Wednesday, November 18, 2020, Today in History:  

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Thursday, November 18, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of Blue Cheer- one of the wildest acid rock bands of all time, beginning on Sunday, 25-November-2012 through Wednesday, 12-December-2012.  We hope you seek this famed band out and add them to your collection; you will be glad you did.

[ii] We began promoting the music of this famed psychedelic band- Strawberry Alarm Clock- beginning on Tuesday, 03-April-2012 through Saturday, 08-April-2012. Please check them out- you will enjoy them.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[iv] When we begin doing the music of the 1990s onward, you can bet that Metallica will be among the bands.  Others will include Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and others so make sure you remain riveted to the glorious AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Thank you.

[v] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[vi] It does not require a genius to understand that every Republican president since Ronald Reagan has been the target of outraged Democrats who seek to overthrow the legal system and impeach every GOP president.  Time for this bulls**t to end.

[vii] These illegal protests in Hong Kong continue into 2019 and it is clear that they are out of control and need to be shut down.  Hong Kong is Chinese territory, and it should be clear to all that they have been quite patient in their response while awaiting the perpetrators to meet them halfway.

[viii] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works, but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[ix] That’s right- we said it: the Chi-Coms provide many of the engineers involved in the project as well as lesser workers.  This is a criminal scam, and everyone knows it. 

[x] Mayor Pete is doing great with the Bath House vote but cannot attract black voters to his cause (and why would they join him?- editor’s note 2019).  We lovingly refer to Mayor Pete as “Little Queenie.”

[xi] Chris Matthews claims it was the sound of a coffee mug being scraped across the desk.  You be the judge: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKLn-qjlM_Y >

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

FOLKS, LET’S GIVE JOE A CHANCE!

316. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2021

60. 2020 Thursday A: Election Day plus TEN- it appears that things might be going against the Biden-Harris camp as well as against the Democrats as information continues flowing in about how the election fraud and theft was engineered. First more dead people have voted in battleground states seemingly than there are deposited in cemeteries across the states, more so in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

  50. 2011 Saturday: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton calls on Iran to respond to the IAEA report that states the nation is working on technology to build an atomic bomb.  Meanwhile, the Syrian people join in the Arab spring and begin rising up against the Assad regime.  This would lead to lengthy civil war within that corrupt Middle Eastern hellhole.  This leads the Arab League- a known bastion of human rights- to condemn and to suspend the Syrian government for cracking down on its people.
  51. 2012 Monday: As the Syrian civil war continues to rage, a second mortar shell fired from positions within Syria lands on Israeli troops manning a post in the Golan Heights.   The day before, the same event occurred which led to Israeli armored units firing back at the artillery positions, lighting the Syrians up.  Meanwhile, Kenya continues having problems with cattle rustlers in the hinterlands what with at least 38 Kenyan law enforcement officers killed in the fracas.

  60. 2020 Thursday A:  Election Day plus TEN- it appears that things might be going against the Biden-Harris camp as well as against the Democrats as information continues flowing in about how the election fraud and theft was engineered.  First more dead people have voted in battleground states seemingly than there are deposited in cemeteries across the states, more so in Michigan and Pennsylvania.  Next, the Dominion voting systems machines have been proven corrupt, easily hacked, and full of a specific election fraud malware, QSnatch.  Add to that servers located in Germany, the midnight arrival of Dominion techs in the six states where the election counts changed on the drop of a dime, as well as GOP poll workers attacked, and one can easily discern that the Democrats and their RINO ‘house negroes’ are doing everything they can to steal the 2020 Presidential Election.  Not going to happen.      
  61. 2020 Thursday B: New unemployment claims although down from last report still come in high with 790,000 new claims.  Elsewhere, the New Yorker fires Jeffrey Toobin for spanking his ‘Toobin’ during a Zoom meeting with a bunch of leftists a few weeks ago.  Meanwhile, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, Republican, says that ‘IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden does not begin receiving intelligence updates that he will step in and provide them to the Sinophile.’  Good going there, senator, are you in the payroll of the Chi-Coms, too?

  64. 2020 Thursday E: We had a DOWN day in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,080.17, DOWN 317.46 points (-1.08%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,709.59, DOWN 76.84 points (-0.65%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,537.01, DOWN 35.65 points (-1.00%).  Price of GOLD: $1,876.00 per troy oz., +2.70 (+0.14%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.38 per troy oz., +0.074 (+0.30%).  Price of PLATINUM: $882.20 per troy oz., -1.80 (-0.20%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,316.80 per troy oz., -154.60 (-6.26%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.14 per #, -0.01 (-0.32%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.88, -0.24 (-0.58%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.61 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.50 Taiwanese dollars.   
  65. 2020 Thursday F: Sadly, six U.S. soldiers died in a helicopter mishap off the southern coast of Egypt today.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer refuse to budge from their demand for a $2 trillion COVID-19 relief/stimulus bill.   Elsewhere, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, pledges $1 million from his campaign war chest to help fellow GOP Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue in Georgia to beat their Democratic Party foes, Rafael Warnock, a Castro-loving POS, and metrosexual Jon Ossoff, in their January 2021 run-off races.  These two races will decide control of the U.S. Senate.  Everyone, please send your money to help the GOP!   Finally, a Pennsylvania judge sides with the Trump campaign by declaring ‘late-arriving ballots should be counted towards the final vote tally in the state.’
  66. 2021 Friday: Stick around and discover the truth of the day with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next studio album by guitar maestro Richard Thompson- “Across a Crowded Room”- came out on December 21, 1985, just in time for stuffing into the Christmas stockings.  Always a unique musical composer and witty lyricist, this album covers all the bases.  The music moves through a variety of styles, some with Arabic overtones in the solo/instrumental parts that delight the ear while others show what Black Sabbath might be if they truly were talented musicians instead of low-level factory workers with a penchant for too much weed and psychedelics.  As always, tunes such as the opening track, “When the Spell is Broken,” to “You Don’t Say,” to “Love in a Faithless Country,” the joyous rocker of “Little Blue Number” to the closing notes all keeps the listener begging for more and more.  We hope you will visit whatever site it is you do for the absolute best in music, pick it up, add it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute finest as recommended by the chef-bloggers at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, and enjoy for years to come.  You will be glad you did.

72. 2021 Saturday I: POLITICAL NEWS I- GOP lawmakers are calling for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing to be moved somewhere else and for the Chi-Com Olympic team to be booted. Anyone who watches this crap is akin to attendees at the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics. The world cannot give these totalitarian scumbags the time of day; no, we must resist them with all our might. Remember this: ALL communist governments are illegitimate. That means that the government of Taiwan is the RIGHTFUL RULER of mainland China.

  50. 2013 Wednesday: Now that the world knows that the National Security Agency under the control of President Barack Hussein Obama has been scooping up metadata from around the world including our NATO allies, German Chancellor Angela Merkel lodges a formal protest against the U.S. government for committing heinous acts such as this.   Meanwhile, another foreign ally, Pakistani President Nawaz Sharif begs the Obama administration to end ongoing drone strikes that are killing all sorts of innocent people.  Things are rough for Barack Hussein.  Finally, the U.S. extends the deadline to sign up for Obamacare or face PENALTIES.
  51. 2014 Thursday: North Korea releases one of three American captives as a show of ‘niceness’ to the world- 56-year-old Jeffrey Fowie, who left a Bible in a sailor’s club (how did you do this?) while he was visiting the lovely country.  The North Koreans said this was ‘illegal as hell.’  They still hold Matthew Miller and Kenneth Bae. 
  52. 2015 Friday: Benghazi committee investigating the assault on our embassy in that war-torn nation back in 2012 Republican chairman Trey Gowdy admits that ‘no added information regarding Hillary or Barack Obama’s mishandling of the tragic events that occurred on the anniversary of September 11.’   Meanwhile, the Obama administration asks Congress to back bankruptcy help for the forever-struggling Puerto Rico.
  53. 2016 Sunday: In Iraq, Turkish troops begin firing artillery onto ISIS positions in the war-ravaged city of Mosul as the Pentagon promises an increase in U.S. airstrikes on the positions held by the murderous human waste.   Elsewhere in Syria, a three-day ceasefire brings about no gains in humanitarian efforts to bring succor to the Syrian people.  Say it ain’t so.    
  54. 2017 Monday: Violent attacks continue in Afghanistan as out-of-control jihadis like the Taliban and their ISIS cousins launch suicide attacks on Afghan government troops and law enforcement.  At least 250 are slain in these monstrous attacks which tells us we should be employing the neutron bomb against jihadist positions and territories.   Elsewhere, following the deaths of four U.S. Special Forces soldiers in the African country of Niger- something of which very few seemed to have any knowledge- the U.S. Senate plans to review war authorizations used by presidents since September 11, 2001, to send U.S. troops around the world to combat terrorism.  Again, we stress, NO one knew where we have troops around the world, in more than 100 countries.  Why are they there?  What are they doing?  President Trump plans on ending this facet of the military-industrial complex scheme.
  55. 2018 Tuesday: In the first game of the 2018 World Series, the Boston Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers by a score of 8-4 at Fenway Park.   Elsewhere, Austrian scientists report that for the first time, microplastics have been discovered in the stools of human beings.   Elsewhere, the United Nations reports that more than half of Yemen’s population is facing famine due to the Houthi rebels and their Iranian backers war.  The Saudis and other Arab coalition partners are trying to drive the Iranian scum out of the poorest Arab country in the world.   Meanwhile, as the mid-term elections draw closer, Democratic challenger for governor of Georgia- Stacey Abrams- continues whining about VOTER SUPPRESSION AND INTIMIDATION.  Democrats are the ones who suppress votes and intimidate voters, Stacey so shut the hell up.
  56. 2019 Wednesday:  As the Democrats move their impeachment hearings for President Donald J. Trump into the bowels of the House into the SCIF- sensitive compartment information facility, a mob of Republican lawmakers- locked out of the hearings- storm the room driving House Intel chairman Adam “Pencil-Neck” Schiff into a fit of anger.  The Democrats are trying to use Star Chamber activities to go after Trump and thankfully, the GOP is going to have none of it.   Elsewhere, in Game 2 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 12-3 in Houston.  Meanwhile, Spain decides to remove the remains of the nation’s savior- Generalissimo Francisco “El Caudillo” Franco- from the National Mausoleum and dump them somewhere else.  Many leftists whine that like Hitler and Mussolini, Franco should have no respect but were it not for him, Spain would have ended up like the Soviet Union.  God bless you, El Caudillo!
  57. 2020 Friday: Following last night’s final debate between President Donald J. Trump and former vice president “Pro-China Joe” Biden, most viewers, and critics favor Trump for the victory and not Obama’s No. 2.  Piers Morgan, not a big fan of the president, said that President Trump ‘exposed Biden’s flaws.’  Speaking of the Biden-Harris ticket, Sen. Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is pushing Mr. Biden to make him the next secretary of labor.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State is in Asia, strengthening relationships between our allies there and building up our joint defenses against the Chi-Coms.   In addition to that, the U.S. inks a deal with which to strengthen families around the world and to stop the avalanche of abortions across the planet.  We cannot abort our future.   Finally, the Trump administration slaps new sanctions on Iranian companies involved in trying to sway our elections. 
  58. 2020 Friday A: Pfizer is testing a COVID-19 vaccine on teens and pre-teens, hoping to have something with which, the young people can be inoculated against the Chinese virus so schools and sports can return to normal.  However, we also hear that unless we can bring the end of COVID-19 to the planet and soon, our Social Security and Medicare could be depleted by 2030 or sooner due to lost taxes from workers.  This is the snowball effect a pandemic such as this can cause the nation.  We must reopen and soon and life must return to normal.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration announces that Sudan will soon be normalizing relations with Israel putting yet more pressure on the Iranians and the Palestinians to make peace.  NO wonder Iran is trying to push American voters to vote for their preferred candidate, “Pro-China Joe” Biden.
  59. 2020 Friday B: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 42,006,178 confirmed cases, +1,354,101, 1,140,759, confirmed deaths, +18,723, and 28,423,572 confirmed recoveries, +25,461,512.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 8,568,527 confirmed cases, up 84,435 from yesterday’s reporting, 227,059 confirmed deaths, UP 912, and 5,376,236 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,421.  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: 897,543 confirmed cases, 17,276 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,478 confirmed cases, 206 confirmed deaths, and 11,232 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 105,404 confirmed cases, 2,390 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 308,840 confirmed cases, 2,329 confirmed deaths, and 290,130 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Idaho- currently, they have 56,924 confirmed cases, 560 confirmed deaths, and 27,221 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Brad Little, for providing us with the full sets of numbers.

  61. 2020 Friday D: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions #1601 Draw tonight with a $97 million jackpot: 18, 34, 44, 60, 69, and Mega 22.  The highest winners were 29 people who had four numbers for a prize of $573 apiece.  Meanwhile, in Game 3 of the 2020 World Series, the Dodgers beat the Tampa Bay Rays by a final score of 6-2, taking a 2-1 Series lead.
  62. 2020 Friday E: Communist China continues threatening the United States that IF the U.S. sells arms to Taiwan, war could be on the horizon.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin cannot rule out a Chi-Com-Russia alliance in a war against the United States.    Elsewhere, Fox News reports that the Hunter Biden laptop documents don’t show ‘clear ties to “Pro-China Joe” Biden’ but ‘tough questions still remain.’  Viewership for the 2nd (actually the 3rd) Trump-Biden debate dropped to 63 million.  Finally, the Department of Justice reports that incarceration rates for blacks and Hispanics have ‘nosedived.’

TRUMP COVID-19 DEATHS- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 442,109 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop him.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump with 38,041 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.

  68. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.541 per gallon, $3.313 in Florida, $4.268 in Hawaii, and $3.877 in Washington state.[xi]    Let us look at one other West Virginia: $3.264.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 20th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Oman: $2.350 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,912,021,777,371 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Hong Kong, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  69. 2021 Saturday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Sad but true, today is Day No. 212 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and the ongoing crisis down there and Day No. 119 since she showed up to do her job.  Don’t you think it’s time to fire this loser?  Only thing about that is that California does not want her to return to the state.  She is now the entire nation’s problem (and Congressman James Clyburn, you POS- she rests solely upon YOU.  Next, here are the numbers for today as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost to U.S. taxpayers of caring for this human garbage for just this day: $627,384,704.  Stunning how much money our government is willing to spend to replace U.S. voters with Third World refuse.  Next, here is the cost to taxpayers for the entire year to date: $323,915,153,408.  Third, here is the figure for the numbers of illegals who have swarmed into the country for this just this year: 3,319,870.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE LOW ESTIMATE for the illegals living in our country as we speak, sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats: 37,319,872.  Round them up and deport them.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  70. 2021 Saturday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II- Down in southern Mexico, tens of thousands of illegal aliens are forcing their way through roadblocks set up by Mexican military forces.  Folks, start employing lead on these people, it’s the only way we can halt the ongoing disaster caused by that POS feeble Joe “Slobbering” Biden.  Next, up to 5,000 U.S. Border Patrol agents are set to lose their jobs in a couple of weeks due to their refusal to get the Chi-Vi vaccines as mandated by the illegitimate ‘president’ in the White House.  This will effectively absolve the Border Patrol as a force capable of repelling the invasion.  Time to arm up and head south.  Someone has to save the country.
  71. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION I- We learned today from watching One America News that the COVID-19 vaccine is effective ONLY for the alpha variant of the Chi-Vi, the original one the Chi-Coms let loose upon the world.  Since then, the vaccines have changed and the proof of how ineffective they are is in the push by the Biden regime that everyone get 2, 3, 4, or more in a never-ending line of getting one jab after another of vaccines we know little to nothing about.  Dr. Brian Tyson told Pearson Sharp that Pfizer emails acknowledge that fetal tissue cells from aborted fetuses are an integral part in the creation, formulation, testing, and ultimate injection into the body of anyone unwilling to resist the Mark of the Beast.  This is crazy, folks, absolutely insane, just as employers being told NOT to report side effects among their jabbed employees to VAERS.  Dr. Tyson also acknowledged that more than 46,000 seniors died within two weeks of receiving COVID-19 shots.  What is the correlation here?  Within two flipping weeks of getting a shot.  Think Hank Aaron.  Think Colin Powell.  Resist now.  Also, how is it that Pfizer can claim that ‘their shot is 95-percent effective in 5–11-year-old children?  There is NO data to support this crazy claim.  Keep your kids away from this crap.
  72. 2021 Saturday I: POLITICAL NEWS I- GOP lawmakers are calling for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing to be moved somewhere else and for the Chi-Com Olympic team to be booted.  Anyone who watches this crap is akin to attendees at the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics.   The world cannot give these totalitarian scumbags the time of day; no, we must resist them with all our might.  Remember this: ALL communist governments are illegitimate.  That means that the government of Taiwan is the RIGHTFUL RULER of mainland China.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS-LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS I-  Lyft shared the absolutely shocking figures with the world today: between 2017 and 2019, the ride-share service recorded 4,000 sexual assaults.  What the hell is going on?  Who would ride in one of their flipping cars?  This is insane.  What is Congress going to do about this appalling statistic?  Most likely, nothing.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SPORTS NEWS I- The Atlanta Braves (95-75) are in the World Series, folks.  Tonight, in a stunning victory, they beat the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers (112-61) and the reigning World Series champions, no less- by a final score of 4-2.  The World Series begins next Tuesday in Houston, Texas.
  75. 2021 Saturday L: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3606 what with a $28 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 05, 20, 31, 33, 45, and Mega 21.  Out of 101,387 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $9,335 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) 76 in San Jose, CA 95131 (2) Safeway in Roseville, CA 95678 (3) Lucky Seafood in San Diego, CA 92126 and (4) Super Latino Market in Santa Rosa, CA 95407.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #901 with a jackpot of $86 million up for grabs: 10, 30, 51, 57, 63, and Power 20.  Out of 51,204 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 32 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $457 apiece.

Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump pardoned former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had been falsely convicted of a misdemeanor contempt-of-court charge for defying a judge’s orders that he stop conducting immigration patrols; the 85-year-old retired lawman had faced the prospect of jail time at his October sentencing.

  59. 2020 Tuesday A: Tonight’s speakers at the Republican National Convention include First Lady Melania Trump, Eric Trump, Tiffany Trump, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo speaking from Jerusalem as he continues his Mideastern trip.  This, of course, has Democrats foaming from the mouth just as Melania speaking from the White House rose garden does.  Oh, boohoo.  Also speaking tonight are Sen. Rand Paul, R-KY, Florida Lt.Gov. Jeanette Nunez, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, anti-abortion advocate Abby Johnson, Maine Lobsterman Jason Joyce, Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer, Mary Ann Mendoza, a mother who lost her son to an illegal drunken driver, Nicolas Sandman, the kid vilified by the press for supposedly being ‘disrespectful to a Native American elder who turned out to be a fraud, as well as other surprise guests.  Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics says “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads President Donald J.

  60. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 23,694,646 confirmed cases, UP by 269,802 cases, 814,354 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,638 deaths, and 15,381,104 confirmed recoveries, UP by 230,337 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,850,278 confirmed cases, UP by 56,817 new cases, 180,375 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,046 new deaths, and 2,980,604 confirmed recoveries, UP by 33,332 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true.
  61. 2020 Tuesday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 673,095 confirmed cases, 12,257 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,769 confirmed cases, 49 confirmed deaths, and 2,172 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,456 confirmed cases, 1,872 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 430,774 confirmed number of cases, 32,864 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you putrid piece of culvert muck, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.
  62. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,248.44, DOWN 60.02 points (-0.21%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,466.47, UP 86.75 points (+0.76%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,443.62, UP 12.34 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,935.00 per troy oz., +11.90 (+0.62%) while the price of SILVER is $26.55 per troy ounce, +0.277 (+1.05%).  The price of PLATINUM is $937.40 per troy oz, +3.40 (+0.36%) while the price of COPPER is $2.94 per pound, +0.006 (+0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $43.43 per barrel, +0.08 (+0.18%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.91 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  63. 2021 Wednesday:  Hello, friends, stick around to find out whatever the hell mess Joe Biden is creating today on behalf of his Chi-Com taskmasters.

  63. 2021 Tuesday: Today is Day #153 of the illegal Joe Biden regime.  They can tell us we’re all crazy but we know the truth.  There are not enough prisons with which to imprison everyone unless they invite in Chi-Com troops to patrol the streets…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After about three years, Jethro Tull returned with a new studio album, “Crest of a Knave” on September 11, 1987.  Sidelined by a serious throat infection, leader Ian Anderson could not sing and thus the band languished for a while.  Joining Anderson (guitars, keyboards, flutes, and vocals) were of course longtime friend and guitarist Martin Barre and Dave Pegg (bass, backing vocals).  Two drummers provided the percussive elements, Gerry Conway and Doane Perry and violinist Ric Sanders joined for a track or two.  The album received mixed reviews but of course as bands from the 1960s plowed forward into the 1980s, they suffered all kinds of abuse from a new generation of ‘music critics.’  The album went on to win a Grammy so what the hell people?  We hope you will seek it out and add it to your listening pleasure.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next ‘best of’ package on November 13, 1985, just in time for the upcoming holidays, “Original Masters.”  This effort contains 12 essential cuts, most of them from albums but also some as singles or from EPs.  If you have yet to introduce the music of this seminal British rock band to your ears, well, this is a glorious way in which one can right that incredibly lethargic wrong.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] 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.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade and when we do, Ozzy Osbourne will be among them.

[v] We began celebrating the music of Wishbone Ash beginning on Sunday, October 28, 2018 and continued it through Sunday, January 06, 2019.  From there, we covered the music of Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash beginning on January 07, 2019 through Sunday, January 13, 2019.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection of the BEST rock-and-roll music.  You will be glad you did.

[vi] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[vii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[ix] We don’t think we will ever promote the music of this musical charlatan.  But who knows?  In 50 years, we very well could so remain alert.

[x] We look forward to promoting the music of Johnny Cash one day so remain vigilant.

[xi] We began promoting the music of this legendary American rock band- the Young Rascals- beginning on Sunday, 08-December-2013 through Saturday, 21-December-2013.  This band is one everyone who loves rock music must look into and enjoy

[xii] We hope to share the music of this famed artist, the one and only Little Richard, at some point in the next 20 years or so.

Elsewhere, in Dien Bien Phu, General de Castries informs Hanoi that the end is coming soon while Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais holds a council with his officers chosen to lead Albatross if indeed they thought they would be able to break out and head due south to what they hoped might be rescue. The officers to a man said they were not leaving behind anyone so the decision was made to stay and to fight to the end. This information was forwarded to General de Castries who informed his superiors in Hanoi that NO breakout would occur. Later in the day, after all artillery and mortar rounds were fired, a deathly pall settled over the entire valley. The Battle of Dien Bien Phu just…stopped.

  60. 2020 Friday: More and more information continues coming to light that demonstrates the coup attempt to remove President Donald J. Trump was just: a FAILED coup.  Millions of Americans demand that the participants in this endeavor face justice for the crime of treason.  Many of these rats are getting nervous already and who knows?  Barack Hussein Obama might find himself in the hot seat.   
  61. 2020 Friday A: Meanwhile, in the world of the Kung Flu- the Chinese Virus, COVID-19, confirmed cases globally are 3,938,828; confirmed deaths are 274,655, and confirmed recoveries are 1,319,306 which is extremely good.  In the United States, we have 1,317,175 confirmed cases, 78,198 confirmed deaths, and 182,305 confirmed recoveries which most likely would be far higher if liberal states reported them.  California claims 63,698 confirmed cases and 2,711 confirmed deaths (with no info on confirmed recoveries).  Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 deaths but 566 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Washington state notes 16,388 confirmed cases and 905 confirmed deaths but no notation as to the confirmed recoveries.  It is interesting to note that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo caused more than 4,000 deaths in nursing homes statewide by forcing them to house COVID-19 positive patients with rest home patients.  He will face justice himself for this outrage. 
  62. 2020 Friday B: Due to China’s ‘gift to the world,’ COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, 20.5 million U.S. jobs were lost in the month of April alone, driving unemployment to nearly 15-percent, a number not seen since the days of the Great Depression.  Communist China must pay for this outrage and it’s high time the United States begins pushing for a resumption of the Two-China Policy by demanding Taiwan be returned to the United Nations as a FULL member with its original seat on the Security Council.   Elsewhere, the chief prosecutor in Venezuela handling the case of the mercenaries hired to topple ‘much-beloved’ President Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro demands the extradition of an American as well as two Venezuelan dissidents seeking freedom for their country.  Prosecutor Tarek William Saab wants American Jordan Goudreau and the two Venezuelans J.J. Rendon and Sergio Vergara ASAP.  
  63. 2021 Saturday: Let’s hope it’s a slow news weekend…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger released its next album, “Badfinger,” an album originally entitled, “For Love of Money” but which was nixed by their new label, came out on February 21, 1974.  Once again, the lineup was the same, featuring Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  Sadly, the magic of the OLD DAYS was gone because when things were good at Apple Records, they were genuinely GREAT whereas now, Badfinger was just another working band struggling to sell records in evolving times.  Still, they were a brilliant live act as well as phenomenal songwriters so what the heck folks, seek this one out and give it a good listen- we think you will be glad you did.
