  32. 1941 Friday A: Meanwhile, fighting in Iraq continues.  One thing the Iraqis did not count on nor have themselves are airplanes.  The Brits have a squadron of obsolescent World War I era airplanes and put them to effective use lighting up the pro-Axis Iraqis.  Britain continues landing troops in Basra on the Persian Gulf which causes the population to rise up and attack the invaders.

  57. 2005 Monday: About 50 miles north of Kabul, Afghanistan, something goes awry at a munitions dump.  The place blows up killing dozens of people with no full accounting of how many took a one-way trip to meet with Allah or how many others were left devastated one way or another.  Wow.

  62. 2010 Sunday: The European Union and International Monetary Fund present Greece with 120 billion Euro bailout packages, to help rid them of their sovereign debt.   Elsewhere, following the bombing of the Mogadishu mosque yesterday, the death toll rises to 45 and the focus falls on the al-Qaida trash.  Light them up.
  63. 2011 Monday: As the news continues to spread about whacking Osama bin Laden, tens of thousands of people gather at Ground Zero in New York City as well as in other places around the country to celebrate the death of this terrorist POS.  The world also learns that in accordance with Islamic law, U.S. military authorities buried him via a sea burial in the Indian Ocean so that a burial site on land would not become a terrorist shrine.  The Allies did the same thing with the Nazis executed at Nuremburg.  They were cremated and went into a river.
  64. 2012 Wednesday: 2012 U.S. presidential candidate Newt Gingrich suspends his campaign for the Republican nomination.   Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrives in Beijing for high-level talks with her opposites as well as find ways to line her and her hubby Bill’s pockets with Chi-Com cash.  While on site, she meets with blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng.

  68. 2016 Monday: The ‘religion of peace’ is on the move yet again, this time in Baghdad, Iraq, where three separate bombings claim the lives of at least 14 poor souls including a number of Shiite pilgrims while the Syrian Army takes up positions around its prison in the city of Hama where violent prisoners have overthrown the prison staff and are holding them as hostages.  What will President Bashar al-Assad do?  We think he’ll employ poison gas inside the prison killing all of them (and the guards).   
  69. 2016 Monday A: Elsewhere, the Catholic Church in the Philippines urges its followers to reject Roderigo Duterte who seems to be little more than a whack job.  Down in Venezuela, El Presidente Nicolas Maduro orders clocks in his nation to be moved forward by half-an-hour since the country is facing a major electricity shortage and that somehow moving the clocks up by 30 minutes will alleviate the suffering of the people.  YOU know what will alleviate their suffering?  Your fat neck dangling from a noose in the center of Caracas.  POS communist.

Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the North Koreans release the last three American detainees they have been keeping as a potential future trump card.
  72. 2019 Thursday: Iowa passes one of the strictest abortion bans saying ‘can’t happen’ after the detection of a fetal heartbeat.  Good for them.   Elsewhere, Senator Michael Bennet, D-CO, says he is in the running for the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  No one cares.  Meanwhile, Facebook and Instagram ban several big names from its site for spreading violence and hate.  Among the folks bumped off the sites are Alex Jones, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, Milo Yiannopoulos, and several others.  We shall see.
  73. 2020 Saturday: After California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom orders ONLY the beaches of Orange County closed, the sheriff of the county says, ‘he will not enforce the order.’  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19- Wuhan Flu front- confirmed global cases are 3,424,254; confirmed deaths sit at 243,674; and confirmed recoveries are 1,092,715.  In the United States, the Kung Flu Virus Crisis- given us by the communist Chinese- is thus: confirmed cases sit at 1,157,782, confirmed deaths at 67,046, and confirmed recoveries are 150,934.  Meanwhile, the communist Chinese claim the following numbers (let’s see if they have changed): confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785!  Which is almost the same as one week ago, lying scumbags.  Around the United States, more states continue reopening and no upticks in the Coronavirus Crisis are seen so to all authoritarian governors out there, you better lighten up.  (It is interesting to note that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is still whining about ‘Confederate and swastika flags being seen at protests but every piece of film we have looked at, those flags are nowhere to behold.  ANTIFA- do your job, go to Michigan, and protest this b***h).

  79. 2021 Sunday 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.040 per gallon, $2.780 in Florida, $3.790 in Hawaii, and $3.471 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- New Hampshire: $2.766.  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 seventh lowest gasoline price in the world- Nigeria: $1.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,240,289,802,772 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  In other business news, Berkshire-Hathaway bigwig Warren Buffet is celebrating 1st quarter earnings in 2021 of $11.7 billion.  He also is warning investors NOT to gamble on stocks.   Meanwhile, in other economic news that will trash the U.S. economy, Joe Biden is QUIETLY preparing a massive increase in Food Stamps, even higher than the one his former (well, could still be the current) boss, Barack Hussein Obama had and without going via the U.S. Congress.  Yet another unilateral move that will see millions of dollars going to illegal aliens.
  80. 2021 Sunday F: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Kansas City, Missouri- 71-year-old Joseph Naumann told Newsmax TV that ‘it’s wrong for Joe Biden to use his Catholic ‘faith’ because it misguides Catholic listeners.’  Look, WE believe (and I’m a Jew- Mo) that the Roman Catholic Church should excommunicate Joe Biden and other scurrilous, reprobate Catholics such as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the decrepit nonagenarian because she like he are big PROPONENTS of the Pro-Death Movement and NOT because they believe women have a right to control their own bodies but because they make money off it via campaign contributions.
  81. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Like Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is having a challenging time within her party for being the neo-lib that she is by going against President Donald J. Trump.  She is expected to be removed from GOP leadership by June at the latest.   Next former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says that ‘Lockheed-Martin possesses UFO wreckage. This is getting better all the time.   We are looking forward to the upcoming UFO report next month- if the feds actually release it.  Elsewhere, the runoff for the U.S. House seat in Texas 6th congressional district is between two Republicans: Susan Wright (19.2%), backed by President Donald J. Trump and Jake Ellzey (13.8%), which has the Democrats sobbing gobs of tears as they genuinely thought they were going to propel third-place runner-up Jana Lynne Sanchez (13.4%) into the House to help a beleaguered “Mumbles” Pelosi.  
  82. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, continues sharing his views on Afghanistan and says we must withdraw from the country NOW.  We concur wholeheartedly and think we should have been out of there before President George W. Bush left office (and should never have gone into Iraq).  Since going to that forlorn country, Senator Paul says we have blown $825 billion to 1 trillion building roads and schools, protecting women, and doing other non-war-fighting jobs at great cost to our country in resources and human lives.  (Note- I said yesterday that the Democrats and Neocons are seeking a “Gulf of Tonkin Incident” so they can keep forces in that s—hole country in perpetuity and to continue reaping the wealth from the Military-Industrial-Political Complex- Mo).
  83. 2021 Sunday I: Political News III– The family of the late Ashli Babbitt is suing the Capitol Hill Police Department for her murder on January 06, 2021.  We still don’t know who fired the fatal shot (but we are learning more about the officer by the day.  We believe her killing was preordained that the House speaker- in control of the Capitol Hill Police Department- wanted to make sure someone lost their life in this FALSE FLAG OPERATION)- Mo).   Elsewhere, the U.S. State Department has announced that there is “NO TRUTH” regarding a prisoner swap with the Iranians.   Meanwhile, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, says he remains hopeful on police reform occurring in the U.S. Senate.  Finally, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says of Joe Biden’s $2.1 trillion infrastructure bill that it’s ‘like someone with a new credit card.’   Finally, famed economic adviser Larry Kudlow says Joe Biden’s BIG GOVERNMENT PUSH is destabilizing and bad for the United States.’
  84. 2021 Sunday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is warning of a “U.S.-communist China Armageddon.”  Amen, Mr. Secretary, amen.   Next, Kim Jong Un warns the U.S. of GRAVE CONSEQUENCES over Joe Biden’s mumbling, stumbling speech the other day on the 99th day of his regime before a Joint Session of the U.S. Congress.   Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is being forced to answer for his personal spending.  Oooh, BoJo could be going down.  Meanwhile, riotous soccer fans stormed Manchester United’s field over the U.S.-based owners proposing the ‘Super Soccer League’ that would feature only elite teams and would be a power grab by wealthy billionaires.   Finally, a Cuban dissident’s hunger strike is challenging the communist regime. 
  85. 2021 Sunday K: Miscellaneous News I– Yesterday, the Empire State Building celebrated its 90th birthday.  Next, SpaceX’s Dragon Capsule returned four astronauts back from the International Space Station in the first nighttime landing in the Gulf of Mexico since the Apollo missions.  Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has another job (not that she shows up for any of them): she is now going to be the head of the National Space Council.
  86. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Formed in the late 1950s as the Hawks, the group that would come to be known as the Band evolved in 1967.  Featuring four Canadians and one American, the band erupted onto the stage with their first album, “Music from the Big Pink,” (July 01, 1968).  In some ways, the band was a throwback in that having performed with Bob Dylan for a lengthy time, they combined elements of acoustic folks with rock and roll with the music of the prairies, the back-hills, and other American-Canadian forms in an extremely alluring package of sound.  The band features 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).  Their first album touched the souls of many and put them on a path to stardom, one that would take them to Woodstock in 1969 and beyond.  One of the big hits was “The Weight.”  What we have here is the 50th anniversary edition of this celebrated album, “Music from Big Pink 50th Anniversary Edition,” a beefed-up effort featuring all manner of additional gems for your listening pleasure.  The album came out on January 01, 2018.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did, of that, we guarantee.

Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee backs the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act which will correct injustices judges inflicted on tens of thousands of offenders who were first-time offenders, minorities, and/or poor.  President Donald J. Trump brought this amazing miracle into being along with Kim Kardashian and others concerned about the travesties of justice.
  56. 2019 Friday: Driving his enemies insane, President Donald J. Trump declares a national emergency as wave after wave of illegal alien caravans attempt to storm the southern U.S. border so he can divert funds and begin construction of the southern border wall.  Meanwhile, after Amazon announced, it was going to build its new HQ in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took them to task, not understanding that in order to get something, you give something.  Anyhow, Amazon announces it’s a done deal- they’re going elsewhere- to Virginia.  Friendlier business climate there.
  57. 2020 Saturday: The COVID-19 growing global pandemic reaches into Europe now.  An 80-year-old Chinese ‘tourist’ dies in France from the Wuhan Flu.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Australian officials cancel a visit to Great Britain due to the Brits allowing Huawei to build their 5-G network.  Australia like the United States wants nothing to do with Huawei because of Chinese Communist Party’s use of its electronics to eavesdrop on everyone around the world.  Think TikTok.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, Houthis raise a big fuss over Saudi airstrikes that claim the lives of at least 30 ‘civilians.’ 
  58. 2021 Monday:  We heard early today that there is ‘bipartisan support’ for an independent commission to delve into the causes of the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots when Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi knows the precise cause: being in league with Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs who infiltrated the Trump supporters to pull off one of the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS in the history of American politics.  Add to that the waving off of proffered 10,000 National Guard troops AHEAD of January 6 and you know all you need to know.  It was a set-up hence why they lie about the death of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick, why we don’t know the results of his autopsy and why they cremated him as quickly as they did.  Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has much for which to answer, folks, which is why she is appointing an ‘independent commission’ (yeah, right) to look into the RIOTS.  Speaking of Officer Brian Sicknick, the New York Times quietly updates the truth on his death saying it most likely was in response to some kind of irritant sprayed in his face such as bear repellant.
  59. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden announces he will speak at a virtual G 7 summit on the ‘Panda Pandemic,’ aka the Chinese Virus, the Wuhan Virus, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Yellow Fever 2020-2021.  Keep a close eye on the screen to see how they manipulate the ‘speech’ by Biden so as to see the earpiece telling him what to say and do.  Word of warning- Joe, don’t stick your wife’s finger in your mouth.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues dismantling the extremely necessary Trump Era policy of illegal alien asylum speakers remaining in Mexico.  Now, they can enter the U.S. and begin popping out one anchor baby after another.  Diabolical, Joe.  In other ‘Joe Biden news,’ Joe is driving ahead (well, those behind him) to get our guns from us and to eliminate our ability to get them.  Not going to happen, Joe.
  60. 2021 Monday B: Dick Morris speaks out on the Democrats’ ‘bloodlust’ in pursuing Donald J. Trump.  It’s because they have nothing other than “Trump Glue” to hold the Democrats together.  What a shame.  Meanwhile, reputed Chi-Com intelligence agent, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell makes some stupid comment about God’s gender.  Thought you folks were supposed to avoid all gender-related terms on the floor of the House?  Hypocrite.  Speaking of dimwitted Democrats, Orthodox rabbis are calling on House Democratic Party leadership to remove Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar from her position as vice chairperson on the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee.   We have an alternative nickname for Ms. Omar- Ilhan “From the Rivers to the Sea, Palestine will be Free” Omar.   In other left-wing news, Puerto Rico is demanding Congress to consider statehood for the leftist island territory.  They say ‘Congress has a moral responsibility’ to do so.
  61. 2021 Monday C: In the New York City mayoral race, Andrew Yang has hit the necessary threshold in fund-raising to qualify for matching funds.  Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to sink as the effort to remove the POS via recall has surpassed the necessary 1.5 million voter signatures with which to throw him out of office.   In the Empire State, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continues falling in his approval ratings with his critics on all sides of the aisle going after him, accusing him and his bozo brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo, of showboating on TV while thousands of elderly seniors in rest homes were dying of the Chi-Vi due to his horrendous mishandling of the Beijing Bug.  People are so angry with this guy; the state Assembly is considering stripping him of his emergency powers. 
  62. 2021 Monday D: In other U.S. news, the Minneapolis City Council now wants to RE-FUND the police department because everything is going to hell in a handbasket as are many other left-wing cities and towns.  Meanwhile, the Dems are launching an all-out campaign to get Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton out of office.  It shows how effective he is.   Elsewhere, Republican Congressmen Devin Nunes, California, and Jim Jordan, Ohio, demand that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ‘fess up’ on what she knew and when she knew it about security conditions at the Capitol on January 6.  People want answers as to WHY we still have a militarized capitol with fences and troops when they should be deployed along  the southern border.
  63. 2021 Monday E: Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz says that ‘Governor Ron DeSantis would make one hell of a presidential candidate one day.’  Next, following former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s stupid comments regarding Trump’s support among the GOP voters, Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Donald Trump remains the most potent force among the Grand Old Party.’  Speaking of Ambassador Haley, even anti-Trumpers are outraged at her stupid remarks.  Her stock as a presidential candidate has fallen to outhouse levels like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Mitt Romney, Bill Cassidy, Ben Sasse, and other dimwits.   Meanwhile, the GOP plans on trying Joe Biden to the Chi-Coms in every chance they get so as to increase the numbers of wins in 2022 and again in 2024.   Moving on, Pennsylvania GOP Congressman Guy Reschenthaler says, ‘If you don’t think Cancel Culture isn’t coming for you next, wake up!’   In other news, the fact that vandals assaulted the home of Trump attorney Michael Van Der Veen proves just how effective he was in defending his client.  Some maggot scrawled, “TRAITOR,” on his home.
  64. 2021 Monday E: Big Tech now is attacking Pro-Life news services.  Big Tech strikes again. Speaking of Tech, we now know that the Chi-Coms- good friends of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden used secret microchips installed in U.S. computers to spy on US.  How nice.  We should have nuked them when we had the opportunity.  Next, the president of Microsoft says the SolarWinds hack was biggest and most sophisticated in history.  Elsewhere, Parler has managed to return to the Internet via using ‘independent technology.’ 
  65. 2021 Monday F: Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the “U.S. supports militants in Iraq who have executed members of Turkey’s armed forces.  What’s up with that, Joe?  Next, Iran tests a short-range ‘smart missile’ with a radius of about 186 miles.  Elsewhere, Congressman  Michael Waltz, R-FL, urges a boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.  We concur- NO freedom-loving country should participate in the Chi-Com-held Olympics- it’s akin to participating in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin.  F— them. 
  66. 2021 Monday G: Severe winter weather is rampaging through Texas where power outages are ongoing as they are in at least 13 other states.  We hope they’re not using any Chi-Com equipment or software. Refineries in Texas are being forced to shut down due to the weather.  In other news, Ken Cuccinelli, former immigration bigwig in the Trump administration says that Joe Biden’s immigration policies are going to overwhelm the country as illegals are flooding in across the southern border.  We hope troops begin laying minefields along the border to stop this tidal wave.  Elsewhere, John Bachman on Newsmax TV says of the Joe Biden, ‘it’s hard to claim to be a friend of the working class when your policies are rapidly leading to their demise.’  Finally, it’s interesting to note that former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s BIG MISTAKE in using the nuclear option to confirm judicial appointees back in 2013 could see impeachment being used by the GOP to destroy numerous left-wing Democrats in coming years.  We can only hope.  
  67. 2021 Monday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,067,558 confirmed cases, +313,837, 2,405,546, confirmed deaths, +6,773, and 61,277,452 confirmed recoveries, +245,977.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,939,592 confirmed cases, up 32,738 from yesterday’s reporting, 490,672 confirmed deaths, UP 833, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus weeks now.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 160,802 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  68. 2021 Monday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,484,984 confirmed cases, 47,055 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 331,164 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wisconsin: currently, they have 607,213 confirmed cases, 6,748 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 730,293 confirmed cases, 5,414 confirmed deaths, and 670,010 confirmed recoveries.
  69. 2021 Monday J: In other news related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the World Health Organization clears the Astrazeneca COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use around the world.   Meanwhile, Brexit leader Nigel Farage says the world is dealing with a virus, NOT the Chi-Vi but the WOKE VIRUS, one that is sweeping the world and one that we absolutely must crush before it crushes us.  Elsewhere, noted investigative journalist Peter Schweizer says that BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris must get their families under control if they wish to keep things on the up-and-up (which they don’t- at least in our views).  
  70. 2021 Monday K: In the African nation of Guinea, health authorities declare an Ebola epidemic.  Meanwhile 58 mostly Western nations unite to oppose detainment of their nationals or detainment of foreign nationals to gain leverage over one nation or the other.  The Chi-Coms do this, the Russians do this, the Iranians really do this, it’s horrible and it must end.  Elsewhere, a rocket attack in the lovely nation of Iraq kills a contractor and wounds a U.S. servicemember.  Finally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledges differences between Joe Biden and himself but remains hopeful the senile old fool in the White House will give him a ring.  Don’t count on it, prime minister, you, and your country must unite with ALL Arab countries to oppose Iran.
  71. 2021 Monday L: County GOP officials in the Pennsylvania counties of Clarion, Centre, Lawrence, Washington, and York censure Senator Pat Toomey who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump this past Saturday in the bogus second impeachment trial.  Ask him to retire.  NOW.   Next, UPDATE on New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo- he is NOW blaming the vast numbers of Chinese Virus deaths on health care and rest home workers but oh, no, NOT me or my policies.  Andrew, a famous Democrat once said, “The buck stops here,” meaning with YOU- murdering f**k.  Noted journalist Bill O’Reilly says that ‘Cuomo is doing rope-a-dope’ to try to cover his ass and to evade punishment that is heading his way.  Elsewhere, the NATO chief says that nations that send troops to various missions should not have to foot all the costs of doing so but that the organization should help.  Next, the soon-to-be-deployed NASA new Mars rover is going to search out signs of ancient life.[v]   Finally, in Palm Beach, as President Donald J. Trump returns from a golf outing, tens of thousands of his supporters lined the streets holding signs and celebrating how much they love the 45th president.  Speaker Pelosi: Trump ain’t going nowhere.   
  72. 2022 Tuesday: What the heck could be happening today?

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

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…

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 are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp, but we hope to do it within the next year or so.  You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[iii] We should have promoted the music of Journey around the time we did the music of Santana. We hope to do so sometime within the next 10-12 years.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.

[iv] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[v] We’re hoping the Chi-Com lander is going to crash on the Martian surface, breaking apart into millions of pieces.  Otherwise, they will be lying like they have about ‘growing seeds on the dark side of the moon.’  Lying communist bastards.  Hell, for all we know, when their craft reaches the Red Planet’s surface, it will be carrying COVID-19 seeing as how they are so damned sloppy handling pathogens.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

37. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 06, 2022

2021 Saturday E: The Biden administration ends another Trump era agreement, this one in which, asylum-seeking illegal aliens were able to be returned back to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Oh, thank you, Joe, for swarming our country with millions more illegal aliens to whom you are going to grant citizenship. Can the country survive?

Meanwhile, former U.S. secretaries of state and ‘hundreds of companies’ all support the suit against President Trump’s ‘Muslim ban.’  Elsewhere, Queen Elizabeth II of England marks her 65th year as monarch.  
  63. 2018 Tuesday: The president of Poland- Andrzej Duda- signs a controversial law that outlaws anyone from saying that the country and its people were complicit in the crimes committed on its soil by the Nazis during the Holocaust.  Many try to infer that the Poles aided the Nazis in helping exterminate the Jews.   Meanwhile, the U.S. calls for a ceasefire as Syrian government airstrikes on rebel positions have killed dozens.  Elsewhere, as the Winter Olympic Games approach in South Korea, Vice President Mike Pence says additional sanctions could be coming for North Korea.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: As problems continue to rage in Virginia over Democrat Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam’s racist photos in his college yearbook, one of the people who might take his place should he choose to resign- Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax- has his own problems.  In more #MeToo allegations, a woman who worked for the lieutenant governor accuses him of rape, of forced sodomy and the like.  What is going on in this once reputable state?  What is up with all these Democrats?  The state’s AG- Mark Herring- says, ‘yup, I wore blackface at a party back in 1980 while in college.’  Folks, the Democrats always accuse their political enemies of being RACISTS yet here are three bigwig Democrats and two of them are racists and one a sexual offender.  You can’t make this stuff up, folks, you simply cannot.
  65. 2020 Thursday: Following a speech by President Trump at the National Prayer Breakfast, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi goes to the microphone banks and gives one of her most incoherent, rambling, ambling speeches yet, attacking the president, condemning the president, and trying to justify tearing up the president’s speech at Tuesday night’s SOTU address.  How this senile crone clings to power is beyond millions of Americans; we expect her to pay the price on Election Day 2020 becoming the first House speaker to lose the position not once but twice, along with her congressional seat.  Later, President Trump thanked his supporters in both House and Senate, as well as his cabinet members, and other assembled VIPS.  The speech was absolutely wonderful and concluded with the president’s determination to help as many Republicans win or keep their seats in November.  Godspeed, Mr. President, Godspeed.  Meanwhile, in China, more and more images come out via social media showing the outbreak of the corona virus to be far worse than what the communist authorities claim.  We think a biological warfare experiment went awry and now the world is going to pay the price for their bumbling.  Thank you, President Xi, thank you.
  66. 2021 Saturday:  One America News reports that thousands of Americans are receiving tax forms for unemployment insurance for which they did not file.  Next, the TSA announces that passengers who refuse to wear facemasks could face fines of up to $1,500 per citation.  Meanwhile, a recent Rasmussen poll says that most Americans do not believe the ‘news media’ is aggressive with Joe Biden as it was with President Donald J. Trump.  We concur.  Elsewhere, the CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce- Thomas Donohue- announces that he will be leaving his position in favor of Suzanne Clark.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump returns to social media with a post on Gab.
  67. 2021 Saturday A: In New York’s 22nd U.S. House District, the one in which, Republican Claudia Tenney finally won her old seat back, Democrat Anthony Brindisi, the beaten Democrat, is now crying about the Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software.  IF you agree to taking another LOOK into the 2020 Presidential Election and how it was stolen from one candidate and given to another, perhaps we will take another look at this House race.  Otherwise, STFU.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden has stripped President Donald J. Trump of his security clearance.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s bringing back the ‘President’s weekly radio address.’  Let’s look for an earpiece folks so we can know that someone is putting words in his ear.   Finally, the U.S. Supreme Court partially lifts California’s ban on church gatherings.
  68. 2021 Saturday B: Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY, says that to accept the GOP counter COVID-19 bill is to commit ‘unconditional surrender.’  Elsewhere, the people are Myanmar are out in the streets protesting the coup against their government even with the Internet shut down.  The interesting thing about this is the Biden administration is upset about the coup in Burma but could care less that he won the 2020 Presidential Election via a…coup.  The Democrats, the RINOs, the Chi-Coms, and Canada- among others- conspired to topple President Trump and to then shove the senile usurper into his place.  What the flaming f**k? 
  69. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 105,461,681 confirmed cases, +238,473, 2,300,891, confirmed deaths, +7,628, and 58,645,012 confirmed recoveries, +144,616.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,054,709 confirmed cases, up 78,221 from yesterday’s reporting, 463,090 confirmed deaths, UP 1,837, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  NOTE- in the White House 17 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 134,662 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  Maybe you will be a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State?
  70. 2021 Saturday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,395,385 confirmed cases, 43,647 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,286 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,334 confirmed cases, 4,526 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Georgia.  Currently, they have 932,912 confirmed cases, 14,858 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 680,856 confirmed cases, 5,020 confirmed deaths, and 590,822 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: the United Kingdom.  The UK has 3.929,835 confirmed cases, 112,092 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed deaths.  What a load of crap, share the TRUTH! 
  71. 2021 Saturday E: The Biden administration ends another Trump era agreement, this one in which, asylum-seeking illegal aliens were able to be returned back to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.  Oh, thank you, Joe, for swarming our country with millions more illegal aliens to whom you are going to grant citizenship.  Can the country survive?  Elsewhere, Michigan is the first state revamping the state’s GOP leadership and folks, they are recruiting strong Trump supporters which is good.   Meanwhile, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wins his third NFL MVP Award making him only the sixth person in NFL history to win three or more such honors.  Congratulations, Aaron.   Finally, the now discredited Lincoln Project continues imploding as yet another phony- in this case, Jennifer Horn- threw in the towel following disclosures about gay sex addict John Weaver.
  72. 2021 Saturday F: Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3532 with an $18 million jackpot on the line: 04, 16, 32, 35, 45, and Mega 17.  Out of 108,912 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $19,457 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #818 with a $30 million jackpot up for grabs: 01, 16, 48, 49, 65, and Power 08.  Out of 54,318 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,839.
  73. 2021 Saturday G: The former 60th U.S. Secretary of State George P. Schultz died at his home in Stanford, California, at age 100 today.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan / served from July 16, 1982, to January 20, 1989.  Prior to this, he served his nation as its 62nd U.S. Treasury secretary.  In this capacity, he served under President Richard Nixon from June 12, 1972, to May 08, 1974.
  74. 2022 Sunday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Just when you think Sandy Denny’s ‘well’ is dried up, the record label and the family dives into the deep end and comes to the surface with still more.  “The Notes and the Words: A Collection of Demos and Rarities” came out on May 21, 2012, a four-disc set featuring a vast collection of this legendary vocalist’s repertoire.  There are lost nuggets, newly discovered gems, relics long lost and thought destroyed and holy, moly, there they are.  If you think you have every shred of music by this famed vocalist, think again.  Just like other bands from the psychedelic era in the U.S.- Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, the always dependable Grateful Dead, and some of the others- boom, bam, there’s always something else deep within the vaults and that is what you have here.   Currently, Amazon.com is selling it for around $388.15 but what the heck- now that you can track the price, put it on your tracker and follow it until you can get it at the price that works best for you- you will be extremely glad you did.

  57. 2009 Tuesday: Eric Holder took the oath of office as attorney general.  Vice President Joe Biden administered the oath.  He was the first African American to hold the post.  The White House announced that Tom Daschle had asked to be removed from consideration as health and human services secretary after acknowledging he’d failed to pay all his taxes.  Why he removed himself is unclear as numerous others in the Obama administration such as Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner also did not pay his taxes and it is unclear if he ever did.
  58. 2009 Tuesday A: Acting U.S. Attorney General Mark Robert Filip left office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Barack Obama from January 20, 2009.  His replacement- the 82nd U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder assumed office on this date.  A Democrat, Holder served under President Barack Obama from February 03, 2009, to April 27, 2015.

  62. 2013 Sunday: The Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers to win their second NFL championship in Super Bowl XLVII after someone blew the Louisiana Superdome’s power in New Orleans power out for 45 minutes.  Prior to the power outage, the Ravens had the 49ers down 28-6 but once it came back on, the 49ers were reinvigorated and almost beat the Ravens; however, the Ravens managed to come back to life themselves and ended up beating the 49ers by a score of 34-31 to win Super Bowl XLVII.  Baltimore quarterback, Joe Flacco, is the MVP for the game.  This marked the first time the 49ers had ever LOST a super bowl (and thank God, they did!).
  63. 2014 Monday: The Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning wins a record fifth Associated Press MVP Award; no one has ever won the award more than three times.  Meanwhile, according to Brainy History, the abortion rate in the United States is reportedly at its lowest in three decades.  The rate for 2011 stands at 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing years whereas in 2008, it was 19.4 while back in 1981, it was at an all-time high of 29.3.
  64. 2015 Tuesday:  After a lapse of 55 years, novelist Harper Lee releases “Go Set a Watchman,” the sequel to her famous novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which set the character Scout as an adult rather than the child the character was in the first book, “Mockingbird.”  The publisher convinced the author to go the “Mockingbird” book first.
  65. 2016 Wednesday: Both Japan and South Korea put their militaries on alert and begin making strong statements towards North Korea who is testing and going to continue testing long-range ballistic missiles.  Japan promises to shoot down any such aerial vehicles traversing its airspace.  Meanwhile, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, both Republicans, suspend their races for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. 
  66. 2017 Friday: The U.S. Department of the Treasury announces new sanctions on the criminal regime in Iran following a recent ballistic missile test that goes against deals struck by the Obama regime and the ayatollahs.  Thirteen people and 12 entities tied to Tehran are on the list.  Elsewhere, federal Judge James Robart issues a temporary injunction against the Trump travel ban imposed on majority Muslim countries with deep ties to terrorism.
  67. 2018 Saturday: The New York Times reported an accusation from actress Uma Thurman that disgraced movie mogul and BIG Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein had forced himself on her sexually years ago in a London hotel room; Weinstein acknowledged making an “awkward pass” (which means he did his best to RAPE her) but strongly denied any physical assault. 
  68. 2019 Sunday: In the lowest scoring super bowl of all time, Super Bowl LIII, the New England Patriots defense stifled the high-scoring Los Angeles Rams by a final score of 13-3.  This was perhaps the most boring super bowl of all time.  Julian Edelman was the game’s MVP as he provided most of the offense that won the game.  Maroon 5, Big Boi and some other schlub were the half-time show.  Elsewhere, Pope Francis becomes the first Roman Catholic pontiff to visit the Arabian Peninsula when he visits Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
  69. 2020 Monday: Much to the shock of his radio listeners, Rush Limbaugh announced that his doctors had diagnosed him with advanced lung cancer.  He promises to soldier on, and we certainly hope that he can.  We are rooting for you, Big Guy, but please, give up the stogies.   Elsewhere, as cases of COVID-19 continue getting out of hand, the Cruise Lines International Association bans all cruise lines stops in mainland China.  Meanwhile, on the Greek island of Lesbos which is overrun with thousands of Muslim ‘migrants’ from the Middle East, riot police have to break out tear gas and batons to quell migrants rioting and burning their holding camps over poor conditions.  The answer is simple: GO HOME.
  70. 2020 Monday A: As the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump nears its conclusion in the U.S. Senate, House managers (prosecutors) and defense attorneys for the 45th president begin making their closing remarks.  West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges for censure rather than conviction but of course, his far-left Democratic Party colleagues don’t listen to him.  The trial has been a farce from start to finish, mostly boring but at other times laughable.  The Democrats genuinely believe they are ‘killing it’ when in fact, they are turning off millions of Americans. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday: U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen calls a meeting with the SEC and the Federal Reserve over the GameStop craze.  Apparently, some people can make big money and others cannot; what a shame.  Next, as the GOP implores Joe Biden to agree to a lower COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill, he waves them off- no way.   Next, the House GOP are holding a meeting to determine the futures of Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney who has become extremely toxic.  We expect Greene will lose all committee assignments and will suffer in-party censure whereas a party will be thrown for Cheney.  IF this occurs, my colleagues in California say the days of voting for Kevin McCarthy are fast approaching an end.   Speaking of California politics, reprobate Democrat Congressman Adam “POS” Schiff is badgering soon-to-be-former Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to make him the Golden State’s attorney general. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday A: The un-American New York Times is facing surprising blowback following their encouragement of Joe Biden to form a “1984-style” Truth Commission with which, liberals and BIG TECH can track, monitor, and disappear Americans’ online words and deeds.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court does not accede to the Biden administration’s request to toss hearings on Trump administration immigration policies into the garbage, merely postpones them.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, Sinophile U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announces the U.S. and Russia have extended the New Start Treaty for another five years.   Finally, Claudia Tenney, congresswoman from New York’s 22nd Congressional District declares victory with a 123-vote lead over sitting congressman Anthony Brindisi.
  73. 2021 Wednesday B: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she with the eyes drooping in two different directions, says ‘a 9/11-style TRUTH COMMISSION       is necessary to figure out how the Capitol Building was stormed by Antifa members posing as Trump supporters on January 6.  We doubt anything more will come from this because as numerous video clips continue surfacing showing Capitol Hill police officers waving the FALSE FLAG operators into the building, there can be but one conclusion: Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- as head of the Capitol Police Department- gave the word to allow her Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs easy entry in the hope they could use it against former President Donald J. Trump.  We look forward to the results of yet another bogus ‘investigation’ led by Democrats.  Elsewhere, in California, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer has thrown his hat into the ring to replace rapidly disappearing Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  The mayor’s first campaign ads are spectacular, and we hope he will be able to take the seat and save the state.    Finally, climate fraud John F. Kerry is blasted for flying in his PRIVATE JET to receive a ‘climate award.’  Hypocrite!
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Congresswoman Nancy Mace calls out the Baby Evita- Sandy Cortez- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- the biggest leftwing crybaby in Congress, over her claims that she was cowering in her office closet while the EVIL MAGA supporters were outside in the hallway.  Congresswoman Mace who is two doors down from Sandy Cortez says, “IT NEVER HAPPENED.”  Yet, the mainstream news media remains incurious.  Personally, we know AOC had little to fear because she was briefed like everyone else in the Democratic Party that the Antifa and BLM human garbage were going after Republicans.   Elsewhere, Cancel Culture continues trying to destroy Americans, the latest target being Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame.  All because he believes the plentiful evidence of election fraud in November 2020, everyone is trying to shut him up, even that putz Bob Sellers on Newsmax who would not permit him to speak the day before.  Sorry, Newsmax, you need to boot Sellers back to FNC.
  75. 2021 Wednesday D: Communist China warns U.S. Secretary of State Sinophile Anthony Blinken NOT to interfere when it comes to Hong Kong either.  Blinken and the U.S. have already been warned off about interfering in Taiwan so now the Biden administration has been told to butt out on the issue of Hong Kong, too.  Elections have consequences- hey, Joe: are we going to return to the Transpacific Partnership, too?   Speaking of the State Department, its spokesperson says a U.N. ambassador must be confirmed and soon IF the United States is going to hold the Chi-Coms accountable.   Meanwhile, we learn that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, stammering, stuttering, and always ‘circling back’ to answer reporters sent a homophobic tweet about Sen. Lindsey Graham, calling him, “Lady G.”  My, don’t you just love the ‘beautiful people’ that aren’t racists, bigots, homophobes, xenophobes, transphobes, haters, white supremacists, and the like?  Good one, Jen, good one.
  76. 2021 Wednesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 104,142,856 confirmed cases, +570,195, 2,260,283, confirmed deaths, +17,045, and 57,839,230 confirmed recoveries, +336,520.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,730,817 confirmed cases, up 206,599 from yesterday’s reporting, 453,059 confirmed deaths, UP 5,312, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 48,215 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  77. 2021 Wednesday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,350,293 confirmed cases, 41,811 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 318,967 confirmed cases, 4,402 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Florida: currently, they have 1,744,619 confirmed cases, 27,467 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 667,216 confirmed cases, 4,928 confirmed deaths, and 589,288 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Brazil: 9,296,245 confirmed cases, 226,666 confirmed deaths, and 8,160,929 confirmed recoveries.    
  78. 2021 Wednesday G:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,723.60, UP 36.12 points (+0.12%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,610.54, DOWN 2.23 points (+0.016%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,830.17, UP 3.86 points (+0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,834.80 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $26.95 per troy ounce, +0.061 (+0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,112.60 per troy oz, -1.90 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, -0.0035 (-0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,276.60 per troy oz, +48.90 (+2.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $55.95 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.47%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.20.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000027 Bitcoin.  
  79. 2021 Wednesday H: The U.S. Senate via ‘budget reconciliation process’ has passed Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.  With the cash flowing in from communist China, this bill will bankrupt the country for generations to come.   Speaking of BIG BUCKS, here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3531 with a $17 million pot up for grabs: 04, 15, 27, 28, 34, and Mega 16.  Out of 98,965 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $37,233.  The winning ticket was sold at 7-Eleven at Carnelian Bay, CA 96140.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #817 with $20 million on the line: 05, 37, 40, 64, 66, and Powerball 05.  Out of 50,955 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,997 apiece.
  80. 2021 Wednesday I: The 19th U.S. Transportation Department Secretary “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg assumed office on this date.  Known for filling in the potholes in the streets of South Bend, Indiana, where he served as mayor, President Joseph R. Biden Jr., chose him for one reason and one reason only (you figure it out).  Currently, he is still serving in this position.
  81. 2022 Thursday: Everyone knows the drill…stick around for the latest…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by English folk-rock band, Fairport Convention, “By Popular Request,” came out on January 18, 2012.  This album is unique in the band’s catalog, rather like Family’s “Old Songs, New Songs”[v] that came out back in the early 1970s.  Family- another British band, albeit a hard-rocking-psychedelic band of sorts- made changes in record labels and recorded their best tunes over again and released them as they wanted them to be originally.  In the case of Fairport Convention’s album for today, they have 13 of their classic tracks re-recorded for their fan base.  The tunes selected for this release were voted on by their fans at numerous concerts and boy, oh, boy, what a great album this is.  The band features the current lineup of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

Wednesday, February 03, 2021, Today in History:  

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

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, February 03, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of these foundational rockers at some point in the not so distant future.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[v] Back in the day while we were with Google Blogger- before the maggots started ghosting us to our readers- we presented the “Old Songs, New Songs,” album by Family on Saturday, October 12, 2013.  Although you cannot find the post, we never forget the good work we did for our readers.  Perhaps one day, we will be able to run through the more than 4,500 albums we have shared with our readers.   Note- Google Blogger was so devious, so deceptive, that they blocked our links to Amazon.com where our fans could go purchase them which truly sucked just as they cut off our advertising revenue.  We hope one day to settle the score with that c**ksucker Sundar Pichai and his Chi-Com-backed POS company.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  18. 1944 Thursday: The Royal Air Force drops 2,300 tons of bombs on the Nazi capital of Berlin.  Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, German positions around Leningrad are becoming untenable.  In some areas as they attempt to withdraw, Soviet gunners turn the artillery that had been bombarding the historic city for more than two years on them as they retreat.  To the south, the fight to reduce the Cherkassy pocket- dubbed by the Germans as the “Witches Cauldron”- continued, a battle that began on Christmas Eve and still was raging.  Ordered by Hitler to stand and fight, the Germans were trying to figure how to pull out of the ‘cauldron’ before they ended up like their comrades in Stalingrad did the previous year: annihilated.

  45. 2001 Saturday: George Walker Bush became America’s 43rd president after one of the most turbulent elections in U.S. history.  His second-in-command, Vice President Richard “Dick” Cheney- a man who would propel the U.S. into two, extremely unnecessary wars, took his oath, too.  (Many believed that VP Cheney was calling the shots from behind the curtain).  
  46. 2003 Monday: Secretary of State Colin Powell, faced with stiff resistance and calls for caution, bluntly told the Security Council that the U.N. “must not shrink” from its responsibility to disarm Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.  Caricaturist Al Hirschfeld died in New York at age 99.  Pollster Burns W. “Bud” Roper died on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, at age 77.

  51. 2013 Sunday: President Barack Obama undergoes his second inauguration in the Blue Room of the White House marking the beginning of his second term in office.  His second-in-command, Vice President Joseph R. Biden, also takes his oath.  In 2020, Biden would run for president.

  53. 2015 Tuesday: U.S. President Barack Obama gives his State of the Union address, promoting free community college education, increased capital gains taxes on the rich, more paid time off for employees, and greater tax credits for the middle class.  Elsewhere, as violence continues across Yemen, Houthi rebels storm the presidential palace in Sana’a.
  54. 2016 Wednesday: Both NASA and NOAA announce that 2015 WAS THE HOTTEST YEAR ON RECORD since records began being kept in 1890.  This, of course, becomes a common refrain year after year after year as the Climate Change alarmists continue screeching, “THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING,” yet, the sky NEVER FALLS.  Meanwhile, Caltech scientists release more ‘evidence’ that there could very well be a ‘Planet NINE’ on the outer edges of the Solar System, far beyond the Kuiper Belt. 
  55. 2017 Friday: Following the oath taken by Vice President-elect Mike Pence to become the nation’s 48th vice president, Donald Trump took the oath of office as the 45th president of the United States, pledging emphatically to empower America’s ‘forgotten men and women.’  Protesters registered their rage against the new president in a chaotic confrontation with police just blocks from the inaugural parade, screaming, crying, melting down, and some such as Madonna threatening to blow up the White House.  What a bunch of leftist trash.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms the first two Cabinet picks of President Trump- James “Mad Dog” Mattis to become his secretary for defense and John Kelly to head Homeland Security, both of whom are former generals. 
  56. 2017 Friday A:  Across the world in Syria, ISIS destroys portions of the ancient Roman amphitheater in Palmyra by blowing it up with TNT.   Behead this murderous scum.  Elsewhere in Syria, either U.S. or Russian warplanes carry out an airstrike on ISIS positions west of Aleppo killing at least 40 or more thugs and wounding loads of others.
  57. 2018 Saturday: In St. Albans, Hertfordshire, bass player with the Zombies[xii], Argent, and the Kinks[xiii]– Jim Rodford- died in a fall at his home on this date; he was 76-years-old.  Meanwhile, a dispute in Congress over spending and immigration forced scores of federal government agencies and outposts to close their doors; federal officials turned tourists away from sites such as the Statue of Liberty and Philadelphia’s Independence Hall.  However, two days later, Congress voted to temporarily pay for resumed operations.  On the anniversary of President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration, left-wing demonstrators in cities across the country marched in support of female empowerment and denounced Trump’s (suspected but unproven) views on immigration, LGBT rights, and other issues.  Widespread belief is that POS such as Georgy Soros and Tom Steyer, among others, fund these crackpot demonstrations.
  58. 2019 Sunday: In the NFC Championship Game, the visiting Los Angeles Rams stun the home team favorite New Orleans Saints in OT by a final score of 26-23.   In the AFC Championship Game, the visiting New England Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs, also in OT, by a final score of 37-31.  Elsewhere, the march of peace continues.  Following suspension of diplomatic relations in 1972, Chadian President Idriss Deby and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu restore diplomatic relations in Chad’s capital of N’Djamena. Peace is awesome!

  60. 2021 Wednesday:  NOT OUR PRESIDENT, folks: Joseph R. Biden Jr. took the oath of office today as the nation’s 46th president while his heir apparent Kamala Harris took the oath of office as the nation’s 49th vice president.  The oaths they swore are to uphold the U.S. Constitution and all the laws of the United States.  While preaching unity, they insult their political opponents every opportunity they get while GOP leadership in the House and Senate are already brown-nosing the duo.  Disgraceful.   Many Americans are renouncing their GOP membership beginning today including several chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We expect to see an avalanche of millions of similarly disgruntled Republicans following in our heels.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, a fair-weather Republican if ever one existed says that Mitch McConnell should ‘unequivocally oppose’ the second impeachment of Donald J. Trump, especially now that he’s out of office.  Elsewhere, Donald Trump flew out of Joint Base Andrews to his home in Florida earlier today.  Meanwhile, apparently some knucklehead phoned in a ‘bomb threat’ to the U.S. Supreme Court but all the radical, right-wing, QAnon violence the Democrats swore was going to explode all over the place has not happened.  We see it for what it is, folks, just another attempt at tarring and feathering all Trump supporters.  Finally, both drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and forever-angry Hillary Rodham Clinton are trying to revive the long-dead strawman of Trump-Russia Collusion when the two should be investigating Communist China-Democratic Party Collusion.
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: Outgoing President Trump issued 70 commutations and 73 pardons including one for Judge Jeannine Pirro’s ex-husband, Al.  Also, in his final hours, the outgoing president issued oil drilling leases in Alaska’s Wildlife Refuge.  Elsewhere, Ret. Gen. Lloyd Austin, ‘President Biden’s’ pick for Defense secretary says he is willing to lift the ban on transgenders serving in the U.S. military, one imposed by the previous administration because of the exorbitant costs transgender service personnel cost the American taxpayers.  Here we go.   A return to identity politics of all types- how soon before ‘furries’ and pedophiles and peeping toms and S & M’ers and multiple-partner marriages and everyone else with any kind of sexual proclivity gets special treatment from the ‘Biden administration?’
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin says that launching infrastructure projects in all 50 states would get the American people back to work and back on their feet.  Sounds great, let’s see it happen.  Meanwhile, SpaceX bought two deep water offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico to convert into space ports.  Elsewhere, Ford and Mazda are recalling 3 million cars due to airbag problems.  Speaking of automobiles, KIA shares are soaring over rumors of electric car production.  We shall see.  Overseas, like the Orwellian figures they are, the Chi-Coms trot out Jack Ma, his first public appearance in months, so the world can see they haven’t offed him yet.  Read “1984” and you will understand WHY this matters.  Finally, ‘President Joe Biden’ sends an immigration overhaul bill to the U.S. Congress that will legalize between 11 and 40 million illegal aliens within the fabric of the country as well as will draw millions more to swamp our constitutional republic.
  64. 2021 Wednesday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden signed 15 executive orders today.  First, he is initiating the return of the United States to the Paris Climate Accord.  Next, he revoked the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, much to the horror of our northern neighbor, Canada.  Then, he removed his predecessor’s travel ban on people coming in from mostly Muslim countries with a history of terrorism.  Following that, he signed one strengthening DACA protections for illegal aliens brought here as children.  Speaking of illegals, he is removing the ‘emergency funding’ that diverted U.S. DOD funds to continue building the southern border wall.  He also mandated that in all federal buildings and on all federal lands, masks must be worn at all times.   Another one would also count illegal aliens in the U.S. Census which will enable Democrats to win more House seats because of higher population counts. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden also cried out against ‘domestic terrorism,’ ‘white supremacy,’ and other evil things among opposition party members.  He also said he can ‘hear the planet crying out to him.’  What is it about the bogus Climate Change scam liberals continue pushing?  First, if we are to believe in science then everyone should understand that the Sun is the number one driver of ‘climate change’ on every planet in the Solar System blessed with a climate.  In addition to that, millions of bombs were exploded in the previous century, nuclear weapons tests conducted below ground, at ground level, under the ocean, and even in the atmosphere and still, the planet is not dead, nor will it die.  Yet, they continue pushing this bogus scheme because it is a way of fleecing those with money and then redistributing it to wherever they wish.  “Taxing the air” is what they call it…
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 96,640,644 confirmed cases, +581,653, 2,068,921, confirmed deaths, +15,537, and 53,267,010 confirmed recoveries, +372,842.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,433,486 confirmed cases, up 143,073 from yesterday’s reporting, 404,812 confirmed deaths, UP 1,749, and 10,562,082 confirmed recoveries, UP 51,007.
  67. 2021 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,071,119 confirmed cases, 34,443 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 325 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 296,363 confirmed cases, 4,020 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Montana: currently, they have 90,255 confirmed cases, 1,094 confirmed deaths, and 84,255 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 575,842 confirmed cases, 4,181 confirmed deaths, and 478,897 confirmed recoveries.  
  68. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,188.38, UP 257.86 points (+0.83%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,457.25, UP 260.07 points (+1.97%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,851.85, UP 52.94 points (+1.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.60 per troy oz., +3.10 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $25.90 per troy ounce, +0.134 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,114.50 per troy oz, -1.90 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.65 per pound, +0.0045 (+0.12%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,403.20 per troy oz, +38.20 (+1.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.96 per barrel, -0.35 (-0.66%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.58.
  69. 2021 Wednesday I: Upon entering the Oval Office, almost immediately, ‘President’ Joe Biden deletes the 1776 Project page from the White House website.  Instead, he will promote the 1619 Project which vilifies the founding of the United States and its history.  It is important to note that today’s Inauguration Day events appeared more like a totalitarian state than they did an American event, the peaceful transfer of power.  Armed soldiers everywhere, hardly any civilians around, in a locked-down, fortified city being patrolled by armed members of the military.  It appears the nation has been overthrown from within.  Meanwhile, the Iranians are licking their chops that they are going to see the reentry of the United States into the flawed, pro-Iranian JCPOA deal.  This will occur almost immediately.
  70. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3527: 05, 08, 15, 21, 37, and Mega 27.  Out of 159,315 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA number for a prize of $53,831.  The winning ticket was sold at Ironwood Liquor in Moreno Valley, CA 92557.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #813: 40, 53, 60, 68, 69, and Powerball 22.  Out of 537,669 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had ALL SIX NUMBERS for a prize of $730,000,000.  The winning ticket was sold in Maryland.  Next, the next highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball number for a prize of $599,639 apiece.  The two winning tickets were sold at (1) 7/11 in Redlands, CA 92373 and (2) Déjà Vu Liquor in Woodland Hills, CA 91364.  Tomorrow night, the Mega Millions jackpot for Draw #1626 is in the vicinity of $970 million.  Good luck, folks.
  71. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson’s next album was a blast from the pass- “In Concert 1975,” an album that hit record store shelves on August 13, 2007.  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but then-wife, Linda Thompson, on vocals, the amazing John Kirkpatrick on accordions and concertinas, Dave Pegg on the bass, and Dave Mattacks on the drums.  The band rocks through 15 of their wonderful songs, covering both hard rockers and sentimental songs of sadness and longing, and everything in between.  We do hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-expanding collection of albums from ‘back in the day’ as compared to the crap one now must listen to on most radio stations like fish-lipped sluts with oversized butts, brain-dead rappers, and chicks with single names and little else to their credit, this is something that will raise your heart from the perverse gutter into which WOKE has shoved everyone’s ears.  Seek it out now and enjoy- you will be so glad you did, of that, we are certain.

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

Wednesday, January 20, 2021, 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…

NOTE- THERE ARE SO MANY U.S. POLITICIANS WHO HAVE ENTERED OR EXITED OFFICE ON JANUARY 20, IT WOULD TAKE US MONTHS TO GET ALL OF THEM ENTERED SO PLEASE BEAR WITH US…


Thursday, January 20, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to share the music of Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[ii] If we are still here in another 20 years or so, you might see the music of Judas Priest, Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Iron Maiden, and the rest of the bands from that era. 

[iii] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

[iv] We promoted “Meet the Beatles” on Monday, 07-November-2016.

[v] Many debate as to WHY Francisco Franco did this.  Many believe it was to curry favor with the Allies as the war went against the Axis while others believed he sought to right the wrongs of Spain’s past.  In the end, his government was able to rescue hundreds of thousands of Sephardi Jews from the gas chambers.

FOLKS, WE HAVE TO HELP JOE; OTHERWISE, THE GOP IS GOING TO MOP THE FLOOR WITH THE BODIES OF DEMOCRATS…

17. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JANUARY 17, 2022

2020 Friday: The Chi-Coms waste no time: a man convicted of murdering a doctor on New Year’s Eve receives a penalty of death. Apparently, attacks on medical personnel have increased in the communist giant following the outbreak of the Bat Flu and a lackluster response in dealing with it. The man killed a doctor in Beijing. So, 17-plus days after the crime, he’s tried and convicted and most likely going to have the sentence carried out soon. The U.S. could learn something on this front.

  70. 2020 Friday: The Chi-Coms waste no time: a man convicted of murdering a doctor on New Year’s Eve receives a penalty of death.  Apparently, attacks on medical personnel have increased in the communist giant following the outbreak of the Bat Flu and a lackluster response in dealing with it.  The man killed a doctor in Beijing.  So, 17-plus days after the crime, he’s tried and convicted and most likely going to have the sentence carried out soon.  The U.S. could learn something on this front.
  71. 2021 Sunday:  Following an average of violent assaults on ten transit workers per month since July 2020, New York City Transit officials are begging for extra security from their ‘missing in action’ worthless Mayor Bill Di Blasio.  Haven’t heard if he’s going to acknowledge their requests.  Next, thanks to similar problems, BIG TECH companies are fleeing San Francisco as though it has a horrible case of herpes.  Can’t blame them.  Meanwhile, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden guarantees that on Inauguration Day, he is going to legalize 11 million illegal aliens as a start which will lead to an erasing of borders.  Election theft has consequences.   Elsewhere, “Big Brother Facebook” now is going to ban ads for weapon accessories.

  73. 2021 Sunday B: Vice President Mike Pence is visiting Fort Drum today to deliver remarks to the 10th Mountain Division.  Elsewhere, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee says that ‘Kamala Harris should be impeached for having supported left-wing political violence all last year’ as well as for ‘bailing out criminal thugs who perpetrated said violence.’  We agree.  We also approve of Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s articles of impeachment against “Chi-Com Joe” Biden on January 21, 2020, for his deep ties to COMMUNIST CHINA.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Vice President Mike Pence urges the incoming ‘Biden-Harris’ administration to maintain eternal vigilance on the communist Chi-Coms.  Elsewhere, one of the BOGUS Lincoln Project’s co-founders John Weaver steps down for having propositioned numerous young men seeking sexual hook-ups for misbehavior.  Lincoln Project is as bogus as is the 1619 Project, crackpot, left-wing BS crap.
  74. 2021 Sunday C:  A recent NBC poll shows that approval ratings among Republicans for President Trump is as high as ever with 87-percent of the GOP solidly behind the president.   Meanwhile, this past Friday, Bill Maher criticized the incoming ‘Biden-Harris administration’ for flaunting all the COVID-19 restrictions by holding large inaugural events.   Everyone else but leftwing protesters must remain indoors cowering from the Chi-Vi, the Kung Flu, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  We say, “F**k them!”  P.S.- Joe will NEVER be our president. 
  75. 2021 Sunday D: The Australian Open is going to proceed in early February as planned even though some tennis players must remain indoors for 14 days if anyone around them tested positive for the Chinese Virus.  Many players said they would not have come had they known they would have had to remain indoors without practice for two flipping weeks.  Who can blame them?   Elsewhere, Betty White hits 99 years of age today.  Meanwhile, fans of Jeopardy! want the stage named for the late host, Alex Trebek.    
  76. 2021 Sunday E: Alexei Navalny arrives back in Moscow and is detained on arrival by Russian authorities.  Elsewhere, former Facebook official suggests that cable providers drop OAN and Newsmax.  Simultaneously, Twitter has suspended the account of Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene.  AND YOU THINK THERE’S NO FUNNY BUSINESS GOING ON ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD?
  77. 2021 Sunday F: On day 2 of the NFL Divisional Round of the playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs (15-2) survive the loss of quarterback Patrick Mahomes and beat the visiting Cleveland Browns (12-6) by a final score of 22-17.  In the second game, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-5) beat the New Orleans Saints, 20 (13-5).  Next Sunday, the Bucs will visit Green Bay and Buffalo will visit Kansas City in the conference round.  We are making a BOLD prediction now- a ‘State Farm Super Bowl,’ Kansas City vs. Green Bay!  You heard it here first!  
  78. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 95,003,533 confirmed cases, +592,965, 2,029,938, confirmed deaths, +9,896, and 52,269,644 confirmed recoveries, +302,236.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,117,759 confirmed cases (mysteriously down from a week ago), up 120,964 from yesterday’s reporting, 401,256 confirmed deaths, UP 1,576, and 10,467,918 confirmed recoveries, UP 44,674.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s next album, “Sense of Occasion,” came out on February 12, 2007, and although some fans dismissed it for being somewhat ho-hum compared to their previous release, the band of merry Brits turns in yet another soul-satisfying release.  The band features the quintet of Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

Sunday, January 17, 2021, 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…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

[ii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

[iii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects which include Mick Taylor’s solo efforts.

[iv] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  The debut Led Zeppelin album appeared on 07-July-2014.  We hope you will check this famed British band out.

[v] 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.

[vi] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[vii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

  79. 2020 Thursday E: 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: 2,282,219 confirmed cases, 25,449 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,397 confirmed cases, 288 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: 247,575 confirmed cases, 3,486 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-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, Alabama: 361,226 confirmed number of cases, 4,827 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.

  81. 2020 Thursday G: In Verona, Pennsylvania, former 76th U.S. Attorney General Richard “Dick” Thornburg died at the age of 88.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan from August 12, 1985, to August 15, 1991.  Prior to this, he would serve his nation as its 71.1st Acting U.S. attorney general.  In this capacity, he served President Gerald R. Ford from January 20, 1977, to January 26, 1977.
  82. 2021 Friday: Here it is, New Year’s Eve and no one knows what the scoundrels in Beijing or their patsies in the Democratic Party are up to today which is why we encourage everyone to stick around and discover their crimes and misdeeds with us…curious?  We sure the heck are…anyhow, have a safe and sane New Year’s Eve and Day.  God bless, see you all tomorrow.

  61. 2018 Sunday A: As the Kansas City Chiefs bludgeon the Las Vegas Raiders by a score of 35-3, KC quarterback Patrick Mahomes becomes only the second QB in NFL history to pass for 5,000 yards and to throw 50 touchdowns in a single season.
  62. 2019 Monday: Iraqis are running amok in the streets outside the U.S. embassy in Baghdad following U.S. air strikes that whacked at least 24 members of an Iranian-backed militia which has been causing trouble in Iraq and Syria.   Meanwhile, the feds charge the POS who stabbed five Jews at a Hannukah celebration in New York City with federal hate crimes charges.  The lawyers for Grafton Thomas- the perp- claim he’s mentally ill.
  63. 2020 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is considering the U.S. designating communist Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism, we believe because of the microwave sonic attacks on our embassy personnel.  The State Department also approves the potential sale of 3,000 smart bombs to Saudi Arabia.  Speaking of the Middle East, B-52 bombers begin flying patrols over the Persian Gulf to put the rat-shit Iranians on their backfoot.  Elsewhere, as things heat up in the two Georgia U.S. Senate run-off races, former President Barack Hussein Obama, and leftist singer/songwriter/performer John Legend team up to make a crappy TV add for ‘Pro-Beijing Jon’ Ossoff.   Regarding these races, leftist commentators are already predicting the results may take weeks to compile.  WTF- it’s a single state.  This should tell everyone shenanigans will be ongoing.  Also, in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp- a man whom President Trump helped get elected- says an audit of Fulton County is ‘not his to order.’
  64. 2020 Wednesday A:  On the world front, Argentina- the land from whence comes the worst pontiff in papal history- Pope Francis- passes a bill legalizing abortion.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms do TWO things: first, they jail activists in Hong Kong seeking to leave for better living conditions elsewhere with sentences of up to three years in a Chi-Com slammer.  Second, Beijing is demanding that Turkey repatriate Uighur Muslims who escaped western China to be returned to the communist country.  Why?  Answer: to join their fellow Uighurs in the concentration camps.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing and the European Union ink an agreement that will ‘open’ China to Western investors.  What can go wrong with this?
  65. 2020 Wednesday B: In Moscow, President Vladimir Putin signs new laws that prohibit his country to control U.S. social media within his borders.  The laws also allow the Russian government to label individuals as ‘foreign agents’ as well as to prohibit the release of data on Russian intelligence officers.  The laws also allow him to run for two more six-year terms.  Mr. Putin just reestablish the Soviet Union and become dictator for life.  There.  We said it, just do it.
  66. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. posts record goods-trade gap ahead of the 2020 holidays.  Meanwhile, Congress creeps closer to overriding President Donald J. Trump’s veto of the $740 billion of the U.S. Defense Policy Bill, all because they won’t strip BIG TECH of its Section 230 protections for platform providers.  The reason the president wants them stripped is because they behave like publishers and must face penalties for their conduct.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocks the $2,000 COVID-19 relief checks demanded by the president while allowing foreign aid to continue flowing to various countries around the world that hate our guts.  See you in six years, Mitch.  Regarding Mitch, Senator Josh Hawley, R-Mo., says he will stand with GOP House members contesting the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  God bless you, Senator Hawley!  
  67. 2020 Wednesday D: Churches in New Mexico are being fined for holding packed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sermons.  Meanwhile, GOP Congressman Adam Kinzinger, Illinois 16th congressional district, mocked Missouri Senator Josh Hawley for saying he will ‘object to election results’ on January 6, 2021.  Kinzinger is little more than a RINO in the pocket of the Deep State and Dems.   Speaking of Senator Hawley, apparently some snowflake at corporate headquarters for Wal-Mart tweeted out that the senator is a ‘sore loser’ and made fun of him, too, which led to a quick about face by Wal-Mart who apologized profusely for what their wayward employee did.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom plans to use $2 billion (the state does not have) to reopen elementary schools.  The man took several billion from the gas tax earmarked for road and highway repairs and diverted it to fight Global Warming, fund the high-speed rail snafu, and fund CalPERS.  Finally, the United Nations says that ‘Trump’s pardons for the imprisoned Black Water operators convicted of killing ‘civilians’ in Iraq violates the Geneva Conventions.’[xi]  
  68. 2020 Wednesday E: The U.S. Census Bureau announces it will miss its deadline which means illegal aliens will most likely be counted in the Census which is not right.  A judge rules that illegal alien families cannot be detained indefinitely.  We say launch Operation Wetback II, load them onto planes, trains, trucks, buses, and run them across the border in Mexico.  If Mexico doesn’t want them, they must stop them from coming.  Meanwhile, pro-illegal alien leftists urge an extension on visa stays for noncitizens in the country while advocates against illegal aliens demand the opposite. 
  69. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 82,510,560 confirmed cases, UP by 601,673 cases, 1,800,400 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,563 deaths, and 46,640,066 confirmed recoveries, UP by 368,822 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 19,910,674 confirmed cases, UP by 197,630 new cases, 344,877 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,693 new deaths, and 8,757,150 confirmed recoveries, UP by 94,066 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: 416,584 confirmed cases, 3,307 confirmed deaths, and 372,284 confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Wednesday G: 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: 2,246,307 confirmed cases, 24,963 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,209 confirmed cases, 285 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: 245,750 confirmed cases, 3,433 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-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, Massachusetts: 367,918 confirmed number of cases, 12,338 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. demands the release of a Uighur doctor- Gulshan Abbas- the communist Chinese have given a 20-year stretch in a Chi-Com prison because of the human rights activities of his family in the United States.
  71. 2020 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,409.56, UP 73.89 points (+0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,870.00, UP 19.78 points (+0.15%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,732.04, UP 5.00 points (+0.04%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.00 per troy oz., +6.80 (+0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.74 per troy ounce, +0.167 (+0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,072.60 per troy oz, +15.80 (+1.50%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.40 per troy oz, +34.10 (+1.45%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.26 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.29%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.
  72. 2020 Wednesday I: Girls Scouts USA call on their bakers to address issues of child labor abroad in two Third World countries where young children harvest ingredients the bakers contract to use in their cookie products: Malaysia and Indonesia.  Why don’t we grow, and harvest products used in American food items here in the United States?  We do have tropical climates not only on the U.S. mainland but in Hawaii and in other U.S. territories in the Pacific Region.   Elsewhere, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp pushes back on President Donald J. Trump’s demand for his resignation: ‘Mind your own business.’  Elsewhere, John Paul Mac Isaac, proprietor the computer shop where Hunter Biden left his now infamous laptops for repairs says he ‘never had any intentions of changing the 2020 Presidential Election.  Finally, Alaska Airlines becomes the first major airline to ban ‘emotional support animals.’
  73. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3521 with a jackpot of $7 million up for grabs: 27, 30, 37, 42, 46, and Mega 19.  The highest winners were NINE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,757 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #807 with a massive $363 million jackpot at stake: 03, 43, 45, 61, 65, and Powerball 14.  Out of 131,167 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who got FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,491 apiece.  God bless ‘em!
  74. 2020 Wednesday K: We invite everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good.  We want all of you to discover their misdeeds and crimes along with us…
  75. 2021 Thursday: Stick around…

Wednesday, December 30, 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…

ENDNOTES:

[i] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do. 

[ii] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

[iv] 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.

[v] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[viii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

[ix] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[x] 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.

[xi] We say ‘F**k the United Nations.  When the UN calls the Russians on the carpet for all the people they’ve murdered in the Middle East (and around the world) or goes after their bosses, the Chi-Coms for running concentration camps, we will worry about Black Water operators but not until the UN finds its balls and does the job it was created to do.  C**ksuckers.

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, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  60. 2009 Saturday: The thugs ruling Venezuela order the closure of at least 34 privately-owned radio stations.  It’s all for the ‘revolution’ don’t you know?  No- it’s what flipping communist do.  First thing that goes is freedom of speech.  Meanwhile, in Punjab, Pakistan, following claims that Christians desecrated a Holy Quran, jihadists murder six Christians. 
  61. 2010 Sunday: Following Palestinian thugs firing rockets into Israel last night, the Israelis launch airstrikes against Hamas thugs in the Gaza Strip.  Elsewhere, Venezuelan thug dictator Hugo Chavez- claiming the Colombians are going to invade his country to liberate people- threatens to send Venezuelan military forces to their shared border.  Colombia responds that in so many words, he’s full of fecal matter.
  62. 2011 Monday: Muslims are getting mighty uppity in Xinjiang Province, China, what with rioting which has led to at least 11 deaths including five jihadists and another 20-to-30 injured.  The Chi-Coms are preparing to crack down on the scum.  Meanwhile, North Korea continues playing the United States for chumps by saying they are willing to engage in the Six-Party Talks yet again.  Fine people, exceptionally fine people, the lying North Koreans.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives holds another vote and this time is able to raise the DEBT LIMIT CEILING so as to avert the 2011 Debt Limit Ceiling Crisis.  The Democrats want to spend and spend and spend…so what else is new?  
  63. 2012 Wednesday: Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak announces that in 30 days, ALL ultra-orthodox Jewish men will become available for the nation’s military draft.  Of course, the ultra-orthodox are unhappy but when it comes to defending one’s country, you do what you must do.
  64. 2013 Thursday: Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Republican, urged grassroots activists to join him in his fight to defund the president’s signature law, the Affordable Care Act…they donated millions to the cause.   Meanwhile, defying Barack Obama and the United States, Vladimir Putin granted Edward Snowden temporary asylum, allowing the National Security Agency leaker to slip out of the Moscow airport where he had been holed up for weeks.
  65. 2014 Friday: Days after imposing additional sanctions against Russia, U.S. President Barack Obama contacts Russian President Vladimir Putin to express concern about Russia’s continuing support of Ukrainian separatists.  Meanwhile, a medical examiner ruled that a New York City police officer’s chokehold caused the death of Eric Garner, whose videotaped arrest, and final pleas of “I can’t breathe!” had sparked outrage.  What happened to Mr. Garner was not right; however, as impartial we must point out that from the moment police tried to take Garner into custody, he resisted arrest and continued resisting arrest until he died.  Do not fight the cops when they want to arrest you.
  66. 2015 Saturday: After Puerto Rican Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla warned creditors the previous June that if its debt did not undergo restructuring to keep the commonwealth afloat, Puerto Rico fails to make a $58 billion payment on bonds issued by the Public Finance Corporation.  In other news, Palestinian riffraff have been causing trouble for the Israelis who after the scumbags murder an innocent wee babe in his crib by setting him on fire leads Israeli Defense Forces to take the fight to the human garbage.  At least two Palestinian 17-year-olds are killed in the resulting fray.
  67. 2016 Monday:  In the autonomous district of Yamalo-Nenets, Siberia, an outbreak of anthrax kills one person, sickens another eight, and kills at least 2,300 reindeer.  The authorities blame it on…climate change…what else?  Elsewhere, after receiving a request from the ‘government’ in Libya to take out ISIS thugs in Sirte, NATO warplanes arrive on scene, drops loads of bombs, and according to the government kills a whole lotta scumbags.
  68. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms the Honorable Christopher A. Wray the next head of the FBI, thus ending the era of the corrupt James Comey.  Elsewhere, in Herat, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again when a bomb blast at the Jawadia Shia Mosque kills at least 30 and injures and maims countless others.  Got to love the religion!  Next, famed keyboardist with the rock band, Steppenwolf- Goldy McJohn- died in Seattle, Washington, on this date from a heart attack; he was 72-years-old.
  69. 2018 Wednesday: The remains of dozens of presumed casualties of the Korean War were returned to U.S. soil; in an emotional ceremony in Hawaii, military members carried 55 boxes draped with American flags off two military transport planes.  Meanwhile, in Paris, angry ticket agents at the Eiffel Tower go on strike leaving tens of thousands of tourists perplexed as to WTF to do?
  70. 2019 Thursday: Keyboardist with the Kinks[xiv] from 1979 to the early 1990s- Ian Gibbons- died at his home in England from bladder cancer; he was only 67.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate confirms Kelly Craft as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com intransigence, President Donald J. Trump announces via a tweet that starting September 1, 2019, the U.S. is going to slap a 10-percent tariff on $300 billion of Chi-Com exports.  Good.  The SOBs have been raping the United States for a long, long time.  Time to make those bloodsuckers pay.
  71. 2020 Saturday: Florida is bracing today for incoming Hurricane Isaias.  Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans are working hard to craft a new Chinese Virus relief package.  The Democrats want to continue giving unemployed Americans $600 atop their state unemployment checks while the GOP wants to slash the additional funding to $200 atop the weekly state unemployment checks.  The GOP wants workers to return to work while the Democrats seek to keep them at home, dependent upon federal government until well after the November elections.  Democrats seek to topple the U.S. economy as only then can uber-leftists force Marxism down the throats of the American people.  Finally, BOTH Democrats and Republicans slam President Donald J. Trump for seeking to remove U.S. troops from Germany and redeploy them farther east to countries such as Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, as well as bring some of them home.  Very few NATO member countries fail to pay their annual 2-percent dues.   As for the most prosperous nation in Western Europe and a linchpin of the alliance: Germany wants U.S. troops to protect them from Russia yet Angela Merkel makes energy deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas pipelines coming directly into her country.  This is bulls**t! 
  72. 2020 Saturday A: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 17,594,541 confirmed cases, UP 273,147, 679,439 confirmed deaths, UP 5,617, and 10,333,166 confirmed recoveries, UP 178,140.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,686,214 confirmed cases, UP 61,034 new cases, 156,370 confirmed deaths, UP 1,124, and 2,293,228 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,254.  Next, in the three states where 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: 500,130 confirmed cases, 9,224 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,243 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 112,936 while the number of deaths is 13,588.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Tom Wolf is little more than a hardcore political hack.
  73. 2021 Sunday: Today will be my final day of the week which means, I won’t be back for six months as that is how the rotation goes.  Join us at Gettr by going to @aicpendblog.com as well as at Chef Lilah’s Twitter page.  We sure as heck dumped our Facebook accounts…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released a much more recent live CD on August 20, 2007, “Live at Montreux 2003,” a 2-CD/1 DVD live offering.  The lineup featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jonathan Noyce (bass- Gary Moore) Doane Perry (drums and percussion), and Andy Giddings (keyboards).  A superb live show from a reinvigorated band, this offering is one that everyone and their brother should want to own as it captivates the listener from start to finish.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the  finest in rock music- you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

Gavin Newsom is a POS hack politician.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,264 confirmed cases, 22 confirmed deaths, and 921 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor David Ige.  Finally, here are the stats for the communist overrun Ever-Red (Evergreen) State: 42,304 confirmed cases, 1,430 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm for Blue States, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- shame on you, Governor Jay Inslee.  For fun, let’s look at the Empire State, here are their stats: 404,006 confirmed cases, 32,350 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In New York, two men bear blame for all the deaths and must lose their qualified immunity: Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill “Never Met a Communist I didn’t like” Di Blasio.  Both men should be in prison for their ineptitude in handling this traumatic disease from CHINA.

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.
