  18. 1929 Monday: Former Interior Secretary Albert B. Fall, one of the main figures of the Teapot Dome Scandal, went on trial in Washington, D.C., charged with accepting a bribe from oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny.  A jury found Fall guilty and sentenced him to a year in prison and a fine of $100,000; however, he ended up serving nine months.  Rather ironically, a jury acquitted Doheny for offering the bribe that the other jury convicted Fall of taking.
  19. 1933 Saturday: In the 30th World Series, the New York Giants beat the Washington Senators, 4 games to one.
  20. 1935 Monday: In the 32nd World Series, the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago Cubs 4 games to two.
  21. 1937 Thursday: Dino Valenti, future vocalist/guitarist with the San Francisco acid rock band, the Quicksilver Messenger Service[i], is born on this date in Danbury, Connecticut.  His birth name: Chet Powers.  He would write one of the most iconic songs of the era that numerous bands would play and the Youngbloods[ii] would make famous: “Get Together.”  Amazing tune by an awesome band.
  22. 1939 Saturday: Future saxophonist/vocalist, Colin Cooper, with the British rock band, Climax Blues Band[iii], is born in England on this date.  
  23. 1940 Monday: German troops- at the ‘invitation’ of the Romanian government- enter the Eastern European country with the express purpose of protecting the incredibly important oilfields from a surprise British attack.  How exactly the British would be able to get there from North Africa is unclear, but German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler wanted to safeguard his oil supply.
  24. 1941 Tuesday: The fight for Moscow continues as the Red Army continues its delaying tactics to halt the German advance no matter the cost.  German panzers plow through the Vyazma defensive line encircling six Soviet armies.  Fighting is fierce, the weather continues growing colder, and both sides understand that this is a do or die situation.  Fear is beginning to grip the citizens of Moscow as Luftwaffe bombers continue hammering Russian concentrations setting up defensive lines outside the city.  
  25. 1942 Wednesday: At Stalingrad, the Russians employ Katusha rockets for the first time and destroy a German battalion.  The German troops had not seen this weapon before and named the truck-based multiple rocket launchers, “Stalin’s Organ.”  Heavy fighting seethes back and forth around the tractor factory.  Up until this point, Soviet workers had been able to turn out T-34 tanks that immediately went into battle with ad hoc crews.  The Soviets expected that once a tank entered combat, it had a lifespan of 24-36 hours.
  26. 1943 Thursday: In the Caucasus, Soviet forces capture Taman on the western Kuban Peninsula.  There is a great movie, “The Cross of Iron,” (1977) starring James Coburn and Maximillian Schnell that is set in this campaign, known as the “Long Retreat” by the German forces.  Times had changed for the Axis troops where once they had been on top, now they were struggling to survive.
  27. 1944 Saturday: At the Auschwitz Concentration Camp in eastern Poland, the Jewish inmates stage an uprising and burn down the crematorium.  Elsewhere, Axis ally Finland is fending off Soviet forces pushing into the northern part of their country.  The Finns are growing frantic, fearful that their alliance with Germany will lead to their demise.  Still, they are a strong culture determined to bleed the hated Russians as much as possible.
  28. 1949 Friday: The Republic of East Germany formed on this date.
  29. 1950 Saturday: U.S. military forces invade North Korea by crossing the 38th Parallel.  This was never the plan.  No, originally, the idea was to push the North Koreans back across the boundary between them and South Korea but since the Soviet-backed northerners were fleeing pall mall, it made sense to pursue them to the end.  This would go incredibly wrong. Meanwhile, in the 47th World Series, the New York Yankees sweep the Philadelphia Phillies.
  30. 1951 Sunday: David Ben-Gurion forms the Israeli government.  Elsewhere, the Western Hills Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas, became the first hotel to feature all-foam rubber mattresses and pillows.
  31. 1952 Tuesday: In the 49th World Series, not only do the New York Yankees beat The Los Angeles Dodgers 4 games to 3, they tie their OWN record of four consecutive World Series wins.

  40. 1981 Wednesday: Following the assassination of Anwar Sadat, the Egyptian Parliament named Vice President Hosni Mubarak as the acting president of Egypt.
  41. 1982 Thursday: The Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice musical, “Cats,” opened on Broadway.  The show closed September 10, 2000, after record-setting 7,485 performances.  Elsewhere, another record of sorts was set when 147 million shares underwent exchange on the New York Stock Exchange.
  42. 1984 Sunday: Walter Payton of the Chicago Bears passes the rushing record of Jim Brown as the all-time leader.
  43. 1985 Monday: Filthy Palestinian gunmen hijacked the Italian cruise liner, Achille Lauro, in the Mediterranean.  The hijackers killed U.S. tourist Leon Klinghoffer who was Jewish but then surrendered two days after taking over the ship.  Meanwhile, the United States announced that it would no longer automatically comply with World Court decisions.  Thank you, President Ronald Reagan!
  44. 1988 Friday: After 8 months of marriage, Robin Givens files for divorce from boxer Mike Tyson.
  45. 1989 Saturday: Hungary’s Communist Party renounced Marxism in favor of democratic socialism during a party congress in Budapest.
  46. 1991 Monday: University of Oklahoma law professor Anita Hill publicly accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of making sexually inappropriate comments when she worked for him.  However, Thomas denied the accusations and people came to see the event yet another attempt by Democrats to take down ANY Republican nominee in any way they could.
  47. 1992 Wednesday: Trade representatives of the United States, Canada, and Mexico initialed the North American Free Trade Agreement in San Antonio, Texas, in the presence of President George H.W. Bush, Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, and Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari.
  48. 1993 Thursday: President Bill Clinton sent more troops, heavy armor, and naval firepower to Somalia.
  49. 1994 Friday: President Bill Clinton dispatched an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf when observers reported Iraqi troops moving towards Kuwait.  The President also placed the Army on alert.
  50. 1996 Monday: Fox News Channel much to the outrage of the liberal left made its debut on this date.
  51. 1998 Wednesday: The U.S. government filed an anti-trust suit that alleged Visa and Mastercard inhibit competition by preventing banks from offering other credit cards.  Elsewhere, gay college student Matthew Shepard was beaten and left tied to a wooden fencepost outside of Laramie, Wyoming; five days later, he died.  The authorities arrested Russell Henderson and Aaron McKinney who are serving life sentences for the brutal crime.
  52. 2001 Sunday: The current war in Afghanistan as the United States and Britain launched airstrikes against military targets and Osama bin Laden’s terrorist training camps in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.  Meanwhile, Barry Bonds, of the San Francisco Giants, hit his 73rd home run of the season, setting a new Major League Baseball record.
  53. 2003 Tuesday: In California, Arnold Schwarzenegger wins the governorship in the recall of Governor Gray Davis.  
  54. 2004 Thursday: President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney conceded that Saddam Hussein had NO weapons of mass destruction as they tried to shift the Iraq war debate to a new issue, arguing that Saddam was abusing the food-for-oil program.  We think it should be clear that Bush committed a grievous error invading Iraq and that toppling the scumbag dictator only increased the power of neighboring Iran.
  55. 2008 Tuesday: The misery worsened on Wall Street, as the Dow lost more than 500 points and all the major indexes slid more than 5 percent.
  56. 2011 Friday: Over 110 people undergo arrest for participating in one of the largest identity theft and retail crime rings in U.S. history.

  58. 2013 Monday: A partial federal government shutdown lingered, rattling markets in the U.S. and overseas while a gridlocked Congress betrayed little or no urgency toward resolving the impasse.  Meanwhile, Americans James Rothman and Randy Schekman and German-born researcher Thomas Suedhof won the Nobel Peace prize in medicine for discoveries on how proteins and other material are transported within cells.
  59. 2014 Tuesday: Wal-Mart announces that, due to the Affordable Care Act, it will increase health benefit costs for all employees and end health benefits for its 30,000 or so workers with fewer than 30 hours per week; the changes will take place in January 2015.
  60. 2015 Wednesday: Following the tragic bombing by U.S. warplanes on a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, which killed several people and wounded numerous others, President Barack Obama offers a formal apology to the medical charity group, Doctors without Borders.
  61. 2016 Friday: In what the Washington Post believes is the silver bullet that is going to destroy the presidential campaign of businessman Donald J. Trump, they release a video in which, the New Yorker brags to Billy Bush on a segment of Entertainment Tonight in which, he explains that being ‘rich allows him to get away with groping and kissing women against their will.’  The comments were made about contestants in beauty contests in which, the real estate developer had part ownership.  It did NOT destroy him. 
  62. 2017 Saturday: Country music star Jason Aldean, who had been on stage at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas less than a week earlier when a gunman opened fire on the crowd from high up in a hotel room, paid tribute and to late Tom Petty by opening “Saturday Night Live” with Petty’s song, “I Won’t Back Down.”
  63. 2018 Sunday: Communist China announces that it has Meng Hongwei, the chief of Interpol, in its custody after the global law enforcement officer had gone ‘missing.’  Hongwei subsequently resigns from the organization.  After holding him on charges of corruption ranging from 2005 to 2017, the Chi-Coms send him to jail for 13.5 years following his conviction on January 21, 2020. 
  64. 2019 Monday: Democrat and GOP lawmakers blast President Donald J. Trump over his decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria which will leave allied Kurdish forces vulnerable to angry Turks across the border who want to go in there, establish a ‘safe zone’ and kill as many Kurds as they possibly can.  Critics of the president call what he’s doing goes against the grain in U.S.-allied relations and threaten terrible things are going to occur if someone does not stop him.  Meanwhile, Democrats in the House continue building up to their impeachment inquiry.  The 45th president is taking it from all sides.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Reports continue coming in from around the nation of people receiving multiple mail-in ballots even though they live alone, or family members are dead.  It is clear that the Democrats are doing everything imaginable and somethings that aren’t to steal the elections in November.  When the GOP wins back the House, keeps the Senate, and Donald Trump has another four years (should have another eight due to the Obama-led coup against him), and the GOP wins more state houses, we will need a new Constitutional amendment in which, the federal government has oversight over the elections process, can demand voter ID, NO early voting, voting in person, and sentences of up to 20 years in prison for any voter fraud with NO early release, even for pandemics such as the Chi-Vi.  We cannot have Democrat-held states trying to subvert the elections process because once no one has faith in election outcomes, we will be going down a dark path from which there is no return. 
  66. 2020 Wednesday A: The New York Times endorses “Pro-China Joe” Biden; what took them so long?  President Donald J. Trump calls for ‘stand-alone’ stimulus checks of $1,200 per citizen since the Democrat-held House of Representatives continues to defy both the president and the GOP-held Senate with their insane demands.  Meanwhile, a Washington Examiner/YouGov poll says a ‘majority of the American people do NOT want a liberal Supreme Court.   Moving on, down in Texas, a grand jury indicts Netflix on its film, “Cuties,” that promotes and praises pedophilia and the victimization of young prepubescent girls as some sort of ‘artistic film.’  Good.  Sue them, shut them down or break them up.   Finally, as Cat 4 storm Delta continues to storm across the western Caribbean region, 57 oil rigs in the gulf begin evacuating all personnel.  Speaking of “Chi-Com Joe” Biden, we learn at his last town hall meeting with Lester Holt as the moderator, the ‘undecided voters’ were hand-picked Biden SUPPORTERS.  What an embarrassment.
  67. 2020 Wednesday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their tools like “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, Beijing WARNED the U.S. NOT to reestablish diplomatic relations with Taiwan.  Here is what we say: “F**K THEM!”  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 35,998,606 confirmed cases, UP by 344,335 cases, 1,052,736 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,927 deaths, and 25,055,487 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,491 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,638,376 confirmed cases, UP by 84,984 new cases, 214,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,440 new deaths, and 4,958,537 confirmed recoveries, UP by 52,905 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 motherf**kers).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 281,481 confirmed cases, 1,824 confirmed deaths, and 216,613 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 2020 Wednesday 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: 841,583 confirmed cases, 16,301 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,090 confirmed cases, 159 confirmed deaths, and 10,470 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 94,932 confirmed cases, 2,262 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 soon-to-be-state, if the Democrats have their way: District of Columbia: 15,697 confirmed number of cases, 632 confirmed deaths, and 12,350 confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Mayor Muriel Bowser for sharing the number of recoveries.
  69. 2020 Wednesday D: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,303.46, UP a whopping 530.70 points (+1.91%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,364.60, UP 210.00 points (+1.91%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,419.45, UP 58.50 points (+1.74%).  The price of GOLD is $1,890.40 per troy oz., -0.40 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $23.90 per troy ounce, +0.004 (+0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $868.90 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $3.03 per pound, -0.0055 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,382.10 per troy oz, -9.10 (-0.38%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.06 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.28%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 22.46.
  70. 2020 Wednesday E: As everyone knows, we spend hours per day tabulating the collusion between the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party.  Today, ancient actress best known for her role in “Barbarella,” and for going to North Vietnam during the height of the war in Vietnam, speaking to U.S. POWS and then relaying messages they told her back to their captors- Jane Fonda- says that ‘COVID-19 is God’s (to her, Satan’s) gift to the Democratic Party.  Wow.  Jane, time for you to go swallow a bottle of arsenic and join your master in HELL.  Worthless c**t.
  71. 2020 Wednesday F: The vice-presidential debate occurred tonight with the sitting VP Mike Pence going up against challenger, Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California.  Unlike last week’s battle between President Donald J. Trump and not one but TWO adversaries- ‘moderator’ Chris Wallace of the Fox News Channel, one of the reasons why we no longer watch FNC, and former Vice President Joseph R. “Pro-China” Biden, this one was much more cordial and politie.  We received different vibes tonight- Mike Pence was solid and unflappable and Senator Harris managed to keep the bitchiness factor under control.   It seemed as though moderator Susan Page allowed the challenger to go on while she tried to restrict the vice president from answering questions put to him in full.  Anyhow, the debate was far better than the first presidential debate last week although neither side would ever answer the questions asked directly but generally chose to answer the previous one or the one before.  I will say it is shameful to ask any president if ‘he will leave the White House if he loses the election.’  Of course, they will but it is important that our elections are fair and when the Democrats have no problem showing they are doing everything to STEAL it, who would commit to such an answer?  The election must be fair.
  72. 2021 Thursday: Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the Los Angeles Rams (3-1-0) at the Seattle Seahawks (2-2-0). The Rams returned to form by beating the Seahawks by a final score of 27-16.  (Note- Seahawks- get rid of those horrible lime green uniforms). Meanwhile, in the MLB American League Divisional Playoffs, in Game 1 between the Chicago White Sox and the Houston Astros, the Astros win by a final score of 6-1.  In the other game between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays, the Rays win Game 1 by a final score of 5-0.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention returned with their next album, “Liege and Lief” on December 16, 1969.  A glorious romp in English folk rock music, the album captivates the listener from start to finish.  The album remained on the charts for nearly 18 weeks so it proved that even losing the group’s founding drummer, the show would go on.  The lineup now featured the stunning Sandy Denny (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (basses, jug, backing vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Compared to modern-day music, Fairport Convention beats all of it hands down every single time.

275. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, OCTOBER 02, 2021

BB. 1942 Friday: The battle in Stalingrad grinds on as German troops continue pulverizing the Russian defenders but never quite being able to displace them and conquer the city. Meanwhile, on both sides of the besieged city, Axis allies Romanians, Hungarians, and Italians begin solidifying the flanks. Just like last winter, this one promises to be equally as bad- if not worse- especially along the Volga River.

  60. 2020 Friday: Following last night’s announcement that President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for the Chi-Vi, they are in isolation.   Speaking of President Trump, Reuters reports the results of a recent poll that shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden is smoking Trump by virtue of what many believe to be an insurmountable lead of nine points.  However, Gallup reports that President Trump’s approval ratings are at their highest since the month of March, 46-percent.  A question asked by Gallup pollsters, “Despite whom you plan to support on November 3 and viewing things objectively, who do you think will win on November 3?”  A whopping 56-percent to 40-percent said they believe that President Trump will win re-election.  That says a lot.  Still, a poll on CNBC says that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to whoop President Trump by 54-percent to 41-percent.    Meanwhile, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a $2.2 TRILLION COVID-19 relief bill.  All Republicans- plus 18 Democrats- voted against it.  It is expected to die a slow death in the U.S. Senate. 
  61. 2020 Friday A: Chinese state-run media is laughing at President Trump following his announcement of having the Chinese Virus.  Why are you laughing?  This has been Beijing’s plan all along, to infect as many Americans as possible.  The rest of the world is merely collateral damage in the eyes of the modern-day Mandarin scum.  Speaking of all-things Chi-Com, Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Miami Heat (Lakers won 116 to 98) had the lowest viewership since 1994 when the New York Knicks played the Houston Rockets faced off against one another: 7 million, down from Game 1 of last year’s finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors.  That matchup had 13.7 million viewers.  Perhaps it’s time for the NBA to move to communist China, a place they seem to value more than they do their native country.  Adios, muchachos.
  62. 2020 Friday B: U.S. unemployment dropped below 8-percent yesterday, coming in at 7.9-percent what with 661,000 new jobs created and an increase in wage growth by 4.7-percent.   Speaking of economics, Switzerland announces it has approved a minimum wage of $25 per hour.  Yikes.  The cost of everything is going to skyrocket which means the mountain-surrounded country will have to import more Muslim refugees to fill low-wage jobs (under the table, if you know what we mean).  Elsewhere, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces that the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett will plow ahead, even as Democrats screech for a slow-down in the process.  Speaking of court matters, the U.S. Supreme Court says it’s going to review a BALLOT HARVESTING LAW in the state of Arizona.
  63. 2020 Friday C: Earlier today, Marine One transported President Donald J. Trump to Walter Reed Medical Center due to his Xi Jinping Bat Flu symptoms.  Upon arrival, he walked off the helicopter on his own volition, snapped a salute to military personnel, and headed for the hospital.  First Lady Melania Trump remains at the White House.  Son, Baron, and other family members have tested negative for the virus.  We neglected to mention that RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also has the Chi-Vi.  Get well, Mr. President, and Nancy “Mumbles’ Pelosi, stop talking about presidential succession: YOU will NEVER get close to the White House other than as an invited guest.
  64. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 34,448,691 confirmed cases, +368,568, 1,025,315, confirmed deaths, +9,500, and 23,914,378 confirmed recoveries, +225,513.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,407,970 confirmed cases, up 72,412 from yesterday’s reporting, 211,761 confirmed deaths, UP 1,404, and 3,942,432 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,876.  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: 826,362 confirmed cases, 16,033 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 12,660 confirmed cases, 139 confirmed deaths, and 10,340 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 92,166 confirmed cases, 2,227 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 258,920 confirmed cases, 1,633 confirmed deaths, and 185,122 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: New Hampshire- currently, they have 8,317 confirmed cases, 441 confirmed deaths, and 7,534 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Chris Sununu, for sharing ALL the numbers.
  65. 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes NOT GOOD with the president in the hospital: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,682.81, DOWN 134.09 points (-0.48%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,075.02, DOWN 251.49 points (-2.22%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,348.44, DOWN 32.36 points (-0.96%).  Price of GOLD: $1,904.10 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.18%). Here is the price of SILVER: $23.86 per troy oz., -0.169 (-0.70%).  Price of PLATINUM: $887.20 per troy oz., -4.20 (-0.47%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,305.00 per troy oz., -21.00 (-0.90%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.98 per #, +0.0025 (+0.08%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $37.01, -0.04 (-0.11%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.73 Afghan afghani.
  66. 2020 Friday F:  As has become the norm, if you want to know what sorts of devious activities the Democratic Party and their bosses in Beijing are up to, you will have to check in throughout the day as more and more information continues coming to light.  We know the Chi-Coms and their allies in the Democratic Party are celebrating the president’s plight; their time is coming and it’s coming soon.  We also know as of today that the Chi-Coms are waging war on our blog site, using their stooge at Google- Sundar Pichai- to put us in page 100 of search results.  What do you scumbags fear?  YOU fear free speech?  We know Sundar Pichai sure the heck does; after all, he’s the POS who shut down the popular Google Plus site, used by millions of users around the world.  He did to stick his nose up Xi Jinping’s butt.
  67. 2020 Friday G: We learned this evening that the Michigan Supreme Court struck down Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat- a woman, who if ANTIFA truly battled fascism would be there en masse doing battle with her- struck down her recent bald-faced attempt at extending her dictatorial power by extending the COVID-19 lockdown until the end of October.  They said without approval by the state’s legislature, her orders were invalid.  According to the court, ‘life must begin returning to normal.’  Elsewhere, we learned that former White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway tested positive for the Wuhan Virus as has North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, Republican, Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, and three members of the White House Press Corps.   Sadly, many on the left are praying the president dies while world leaders- from Boris Johnson, UK, Angela Merkel, Germany, Vladimir Putin, Russia, and Kim Jong-Un, North Korea.  Thank you.   We also must note that both the former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden both tested NEGATIVE today for the Chinese Virus.  Good health to you and yours.
  68. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for Mega-Millions: 09, 38, 47, 49, 68, and Mega 25.  (Next jackpot: $41 million) #1595 (The highest winners were 34 people who had four numbers for a prize of $413 apiece).
  69. 2021 Saturday: We hope it’s a slow weekend…

228. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2021

CC. 1969 Saturday: Today is the second day of the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair. The bands performing today were heavier than the folk artists of the previous day. Some of the performances would be legendary, captured on the first two Woodstock albums. The first album was a 3-LP set while the second album was a 2-LP set. Fantastic music that everyone must own because compared to the crap of the 2000s, there is nothing that will compare.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Blodwyn Pig/Mick Abrahams released an updated version of “All Said and Done,” (March 28, 2004), “Cat Squirrel Blues,” on May 01, 2013.  Mick Abrams and band redid portions of Jethro Tull’s first album, “This Was,” and what a difference between Ian Anderson’s ultimate version and guitarist Abrams musical views.  Remember, after “This Was,” the creative difference between Ian Anderson and the fiery guitarist caused the latter to bolt and everyone knows the rest of the story.  The songs spread across two discs, one of which is acoustic while the other album of this two-disc set is a smoking, red-hot album, both of which make a highly desirable package.  We hope you will go out and seek this album out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

  66. 2020 Wednesday A: Meanwhile, one of President Trump’s financial advisors, Peter Navarro, authored an op-ed in USA Today in which, he criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci as not being right on anything related to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The White House said they knew nothing of the editorial.  Elsewhere in New York City, NYPD officers discovered the body of Bangladeshi tech entrepreneur Fahim Saleh, 33-years-old dismembered in his luxury apartment.  His head and limbs were sorted into plastic bags for disposal with an electric saw nearby.  Finally, President Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr declare war on MS-13.  ‘Bout time!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One of the best live acts of the 1970s, Wild Turkey should have had a far longer career than what they did but thankfully, their final performances were preserved for posterity.  “Final Performance” came out on July 27, 2000, and it featured some heavy-duty rock and roll tracks delivered by one of the greatest bass players of all time.  The band featured Glenn Cornick (bass, guitars, keyboards, harmonicas), Gary Pickford-Hopkins (vocals), Bernie Marsden (guitars), Mick Dyche (guitars/vocals), Jeff Jones and Kevin Currie (drums), and Steve Gurl (keyboards).   If you want to hear some amazing music by a little-known band by anyone who isn’t a Baby Boomer, please seek this album out and give it a good listen- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know.  This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members.   Please stay tuned.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[v] See previous footnote.

[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] At the time considered to be a brilliant move on the part of staunch anti-communist Richard M. Nixon, it was a big mistake to normalize any relations with this communist giant when we already had problems with both them and the USSR.  Communist China should have been shunned, stunted, and possibly destroyed.  Look at all the trouble they have caused in the 21st century with all their fetid pandemic diseases created in their biowarfare labs in Wuhan and sent around the world with alacrity. 

[viii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Mick Abrams, Glenn Cornick and Wild Turkey, Blodwyn Pig, and Paris beginning Monday, May 24, 2021 and the presentation is still ongoing.

[ix] 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 and a homo twit like Adam Levine.  What a loser, he looks like the flipping illustrated man.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The second album by the British band Aviator, “Turbulence,” came out on March 10, 1980 and most likely was released in fulfillment of whatever contract the band had with their record company.  Now a three-piece with the exit of integral member Jack Lancaster (all saxophones and brass instruments from Blodwyn Pig), the band featured Clive Bunker (drummer and percussion from Jethro Tull), John G. Perry (bass/vocals from a studio career), and Mick Rogers (guitars and vocals from Manfred Mann’s Earth Band).  The album has its moments and to us is an important part of English rock music history in much the same way other spin-off bands such as Mott and Widowmaker were from Mott the Hoople and Spooky Tooth were.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for fine rock music because folks, it will become a worthy addition to any rock music collection.  Enjoy.

Mueller III special counsel to investigate the allegations that the Russians interfered in the 2016 Presidential Election.  This charade would continue for nearly two years and would hamper efforts by the 45th president to enact the America First agenda.

Ige.  Finally, here is Washington state’s stats: 18,433 confirmed cases, 1,001 confirmed deaths, but, like California, 0 number of confirmed recoveries. 
  59. 2020 Sunday A: Now, interesting note here: people are criticizing Russia for not sharing their REAL stats, they say the number of deaths are too low.  Well, Russia said today they are only listing those citizens actually killed by the coronavirus and not those who might have died with the virus but from other things.  Would that not be great if the CDC would do the same thing and would it not be great if the CDC forced every state to report the actual statistics?  Here’s Russia’s stats: 281,752 confirmed cases, 2,631 confirmed deaths, and 67,373 confirmed recoveries.  IF anyone is lying about their numbers, it’s the communist Chinese, the nation that gave this crap to the entire world.  Here are their numbers: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  People’s Republic of China: NOTHING BUT LIARS.
  60. 2021 Monday: Amigos, stick around and discover the truth along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final studio album released by Badfinger- “Head First”- came out on November 14, 2000 and it featured the following lineup: Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Bob Jackson (rhythm guitars, keyboards, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  You say, how can this be?  Some of these folks are dead?  Yep, true, absolutely true.  Here is the deal- 26 years ago- that’s correct- 26 years ago- while the band was on tour, their record company said YOU must record another album on the heels of “Wish You Were Here” trying to squeeze the last drop of output out of this tragedy-laced band.  Tired, frustrated, and with dissension in the ranks- Molland jumped ship- the group went into the studio and in two weeks created this album which then disappeared into the vaults.  Thus- 26 years later- “Head First” finally became available to the fans.  We enjoy it and suspect you will, too, because Pete Ham was a unique performer and vocalist.  Great album, please, seek it out and give it a good listen.  You will be glad you did.

  64. 2012 Sunday: The U.S. military is faced with having to monitor its servicemen-and-women in Afghanistan after reports of opiate and other drug usage, as well as distribution, begin to arise.  Of course, this smacks of the Vietnam War Era when numerous service personnel were hooked on opiates or involved in their trafficking.   Meanwhile, naval forces from both Russia and the People’s Republic of China participate in joint exercises in the Yellow Sea.

  79. 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.
  80. 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.   
  81. 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.
  82. 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.
  83. 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[xix], 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.   
  84. 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.[xx]
  85. 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. 
  86. 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?).
  87. 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.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Folks, we are the only site with the balls to point out that Earth Day is little more than a surreptitious way with which to shove communism down our throats with a smiley face attached to it (look at that angry little dingbat Greta Thunberg, that girl needs to get a life).  When you consider all the things the Earth has been through, through the Industrial Age through numerous wars in which millions of bombs were dropped, fired, or set off, i.e., high explosive, poison gas, white phosphorous, and incendiaries, just as the number of nuclear tests below ground, on ground, in the atmosphere, or in the depths of the ocean and the planet is still here.  We’re not saying any of this is or has been good; no, what we are saying is that the planet has amazing recuperative powers and as long as we maintain the health of our oceans, rivers, lakes, streams, and ponds just as we keep the air clean, our planet is going to continue to survive.  Please, let us stop making more Greta Thunberg-like crazed lunatics, no more AOC and others of her squad, let’s set these dimwits straight and let’s work toward the maintenance of a clean environment and towards nuclear power for all.  Likewise, we know hydrogen burned as fuel provides water vapor so what happened to fueling our vehicles with hydrogen?  It’s all about CONTROL.  CONTROL of you, me, of everyone and everything so dimwits like John Kerry and the rest of the Green Regime can live in luxury and style.  We say, “FUCK THEM!  FUCK EARTH DAY!  FUCK EVERY LITTLE PANSY WHO SNIVELS AND WHINES THE PLANET IS DYING.”  Stupid fucks.  

[ii] 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.

[iii] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[iv] We promoted the music of a group of interconnected venerable British rock bands as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[vi] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press 2006 as well as Time-Life Books excellent series on the Vietnam War serve as the main sources for this historic battle.

[vii] Alas, if only that indoctrinated moron Greta Thunberg was alive back then!  She would have been the center of attention.

[viii] 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. 

[ix] We look forward to promoting the music of Edwin Starr one day along with Richie Havens and other famed soul (and folk) singers like Richie Havens.

[xx] It’s important to note that the Dems have a secondary plan with which to achieve the rulings they seek and that is the constant threat of packing the court.  In so doing, it forces the court to yield more Democrat-friendly rulings so the Dems WON’T pack the court.  NO one can ever trust the flipping Democrats.

  47. 2002 Thursday: An attempted coup d’ teat takes place in Venezuela against thug president Hugo Chavez. More than half-a-million angry, pissed off Venezuelans marching through the streets.  You people should have overthrown this thug when you had the opportunity.

  49. 2004 Sunday: It’s Easter Sunday and President George W. Bush is visiting U.S. troops at a base in Iraq, one that’s been hit hard by fighting and attacks.  The president acknowledges it’s been a harrowing week and professes NO idea as to when things might improve.  We probably should not have invaded the country, President Bush, it was a BIG FLIPPING mistake.  Still, we broke it, it’s ours.

  52. 2007 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate is considering a bill with which to allow more scientific research on stem cells.  However, President George W. Bush threatens a veto as he should.  Meanwhile, the chair of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee (and presidential candidate) Joseph R. Biden says he backs the idea of using force in Darfur.  What is it about these Deep Staters who want to involve the United States in wars across the planet?  Enough is enough.  We are tied down in Iraq and Afghanistan.
  53. 2008 Friday: Somali pirates operating in the Gulf of Aden (goes on year after year) release 30 hostages captured aboard a French luxury yacht plying the area.  Folks, who the f**k wants to take a scenic trip through ‘pirate alley?’ (We heard once that the Saudis were considering filling a yacht with people who wanted to light the pirates up just for sport.  Now that is a boat upon which, we would love to sail!).
  54. 2009 Saturday: In the Gulf of Aden, the French navy does battle with Somali pirates who captured a yacht.  The sailors kill several of the thugs, rout the rest, and recover at least four hostages.  We believe it’s time for world powers to join forces and wipe out this scourge of scumbags.  This is the 21st century, folks.

  56. 2011 Monday: In France, a law banning the wearing of the burqa and the hijab goes into effect on this day—screw the Muslims!  In Egypt in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, protesters demanding ousted President Hosni Mubarak face charges for all kinds of crimes and who were lit up the day before are back demanding all sorts of reforms be instituted to make the country more ‘Islamic.’
  57. 2012 Wednesday:  The North Korean Workers Party names Kin Jong Un First Secretary, with his father, Kim Jong IL as the party’s “eternal” General Secretary.  Elsewhere, rescuers reach nine trapped miners in a collapses copper mine in the southern part of Peru.
  58. 2013 Thursday: Malawi President Joyce Banda accuses singer Madonna of ‘bullying state officials’ after exaggerating the contributions of her charity and complaining about her treatment during a recent visit to the country.  Elsewhere, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan’s offer of amnesty for Boko Haram thugs- if they’d straighten up and stop murdering and abducting people- is rejected by the terrorist group.
  59. 2014 Friday: Budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell is nominated to replace Kathleen Sibelius as U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.  Meanwhile, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducts Cat Stevens[iii], Nirvana[iv], KISS[v], Hall & Oates[vi], Linda Ronstadt[vii], and Peter Gabriel[viii] on this date.  Meanwhile, as Muslims and Christians kill one another in the Central African Republic, the United Nations agrees to send 12,000 blue helmets to keep the two groups from continuing the bloodshed.
  60. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro meet at the Summit of the Americas in Panama for talks aimed at thawing relations; the historic meeting marks the first interaction in decades between top leaders of the two nations.  President Obama loves communists and he loves jihadists, especially Shiite ones.
  61. 2016 Monday: In war-torn Yemen, a U.N.-backed ceasefire goes into effect between Saudi Arabia and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.  Elsewhere, Goldman Sachs, seen as one of the big causes of the 2008 financial crisis that conveniently helped Barack Hussein Obama win the White House reached a settlement with the federal government for having sold ‘derivatives,’ packages of mortgages that contained numerous dogs which when everything went to hell took the entire economy down with it.  Anyhow, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $5.06 billion to settle all claims.
  62. 2017 Tuesday: Famed rock-and-roll guitarist and co-leader of the J. Geils’ Band[ix], John Geils, died from natural causes on this date in Groton, Massachusetts, at age 71.  Elsewhere, as U.S. Navy assets approach the two Koreas, Kim Jong Un goes to the microphone banks to address his people (as well as the world) and threatens WAR with the United States if they don’t pull their forces back.  Elsewhere, a U.S. airstrike goes awry in Syria as American jets seeking to light up a bunch of ISIS scumbags instead kills 18 allied Syrian Democratic Forces troops.
  63. 2018 Wednesday: The Palestinians are upset that Israeli troops and a sniper who took out a Hamas thug got off without being in trouble.  Thus, they set off a bomb near some Israeli construction equipment which then leads the Israeli Defense Forces to light up some Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, other trouble-makers in the region- the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels- launch some rockets into Saudi Arabia one of which shows up in the skies over Riyadh but is taken down by Saudi air force jets.
  64. 2019 Thursday: Today, things ended for Julian Assange as British police forcibly removed him from the Ecuadoran embassy in London.   The United States wants him extradited so he can stand charges for his role in Wikileaks releasing loads of secret Iraq war documents.  Elsewhere, the son of a local sheriff in the great state of Louisiana undergoes arrest for having committed several acts of arson against historically black churches in the state.  Holden Matthews would eventually receive a sentence of 25 years in a federal prison with hate crimes attached.  POS.
  65. 2020 Saturday: The day before Easter Sunday, Christian churches around the United States are under statewide and local orders NOT to perform services thanks to the despicable virus engineered in communist China and dispatched around the world.  Around the world, there are 1,684,833 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with 102,136 confirmed deaths and 375,499 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, Americans continue suffering thanks to our ‘friends’ in the People’s Republic of China what with 530,463 confirmed cases, 20,499 confirmed deaths, and 31,340 confirmed recoveries.  In order to fight this malignant plague, the Democratic Party wants to coopt the nation’s election systems and have everyone vote by mail.  What?
  66. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 135,869,704 confirmed cases, +839,540, 2,935,271  confirmed deaths, +14,734, and 77,284,566 confirmed recoveries, +508,538.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,397,113 confirmed cases, UP 48,882 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,591 confirmed deaths, UP 449, and 119,003,025 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.[i] 
  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 239,048 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO came roaring back with an extremely creative album on February 27, 2012, the acclaimed “Seven Deadly.”  Joining vocalist Phill Mogg are longtime UFO veterans Andy Parker (drums), Paul Raymond (keyboards, vocals, and perhaps one of the hardest working musicians in all of rock), Vinnie Moore (guitars), and Peter Lehmann (bass).  Folks, all we can say is that many bands don’t age well but these guys- Christ, they have been around far longer than lots of other bands.  Other than the Rolling Stones who have the all-time record for longevity (must be because they sold their souls for rock-and-roll), UFO has been around far longer than Led Zeppelin, the Kinks, the Who, the Faces, and many, many others so what the heck are you waiting for?  Seek this one out and make it a part of your listening day.

[ii] The major source for the Battle of Dien Bien Phu (besides Time-Life Books) is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[iii] No clue as to when we will promote the music of Cat Stevens.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

[v] We look forward to sharing the music of KISS by at least 2035.  We hope you will be with us at that time.

[vi] Hall & Oates?  We have no clue.  Stay tuned.

[vii] Linda Ronstadt?  No clue as to when we will promote the music of this legendary vocalist either.

[viii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[ix] We hope to present the music of the J. Geil’s Band at some point within the next five years.  One of the great American bands, they most certainly deserve to be heard and celebrated by the readership of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.

  67. 2020 Monday: The ‘gift from communist China that keeps on giving,’ the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the coronavirus continues sweeping the globe causing illness and death- and economic stagnation, if not complete shutdown- wherever it shows up.  Currently, there are 1,347,803 confirmed cases with confirmed recoveries (good news, right?) at 277,402.  Confirmed global deaths sit at 74,807.  In the United States, there are 368,196 confirmed cases what with 10,986 confirmed deaths.  It is difficult to discover what the confirmed recoveries are but they have to far outrank the deaths yet the number is hard to uncover which is why the editors at the blog suspect it has something to do with POLITICS.  President Trump, we must reopen the economy because we believe the Wuhan Virus came out of biowarfare laboratories in China with the express purpose of causing economic catastrophe in the United States and other parts of the Free World.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The archivists of UFO at the band’s original label got a superb idea and released the crème de la crème of the group’s early days in 10 essential tracks- all remastered of course- entitled, “All the Hits and More- the Early Years” (December 22, 2010).  Back in the day, the band featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Mick Bolton (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion) and you get the must-own tunes any diehard fan or newbie should own.  IF you have yet to introduce yourself to this phenomenal band, folks, this is a wonderful way in which you and your ears can get into the groove.  Granted, at Amazon the CD sells for around $25-50 depending upon where you might look but what the f**k?  When it comes to rock music, only buy the best and friends, UFO is among the top 20 greatest British rock bands.
