  47. 2016 Friday: Harper Lee- the author of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” died at age 89.  Elsewhere, the ‘so-called religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again as suicide bombers in northern Cameroon blow up at least 24 people and wound another 112 at an outdoor market.  What the f**k is wrong with Boko Haram.  Meanwhile, Israeli police are forced to shoot and kill three Palestinian jihadists in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
  48. 2017 Sunday: American jazz guitarist Larry Coryell dies at age 73.  Elsewhere in Iraq, Iraqi troops- backed by the U.S.- are fighting their way into western Mosul to drive the ISIS thugs out of the city.  Meanwhile, new Department of Homeland Security Director John Kelly signs a mass deportation order which causes Democrats to go insane.  They love their illegal aliens.

  50. 2019 Tuesday: Sen. Bernie Sanders confirms he is going to run for president of the United States a second time.  Meanwhile, President Trump announces plans to elevate U.S. Secretary of Transportation Jeffrey Rosen as deputy head of the U.S. Department of Justice.  Next, President Trump signs the order to create the U.S. Space Force, the newest branch of government that will prepare to defend the nation’s interests in the realm of space.
  51. 2020 Wednesday: Information appears that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that multi-billionaire Michael “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg is indeed doing everything imaginable to buy the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  As of today, he has spent more than $400 million on network and cable TV channels as well as on radio.  What he has spent on Internet advertising is so far unknown.  Tonight, six candidates face off in the Democratic 2020 Primary Debate on NBC: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and former Mayor Bloomberg.  Absent are billionaire Tom Steyer and of course, Tulsi Gabbard, whom the Democrats do NOT want.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich gives a news conference on the porch of his home.  His sentence commuted to time served the day before by President Donald J. Trump, he proclaims himself a “Trump-o-Crat” and pledges to work to help others who have been unjustly punished by the Comey-led FBI.  Good for you, Mr. Governor, good for you.  Finally, President Donald Trump visits the city of Bakersfield, home of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.
  52. 2021 Friday: Day 31 of the Biden Regime: first of all- due to growing pushback on both sides of the aisle- Joe Biden acknowledges the $15 per hour minimum wage hike may not happen anytime soon.   Next, the House Democrats demonstrate how much they hate President Donald J. Trump by their creation of a new bill- the “No Glory for Hate Act”- which will prohibit twice-impeached presidents from being celebrated, buried in Arlington National Cemetery, or having monuments and roads and the like named after them.  Wow.  Elsewhere, as the investigators investigate the Capitol Hill police officers, six of them are suspended with pay while another 35 are being scrutinized for having affiliations to President Donald J. Trump.  Kool-Aid-guzzling U.S. Army General Russell L. Honoré Ret. And chief inquisitor of the Antifa-infiltrated- and- lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021 is digging posthaste to uncover the evildoers behind the appalling assault on Capitol Hill, only he’s looking at those with MAGA sympathies and not at the real instigators and proponents of what happened on the dark day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter stormed the Capitol. 
  53. 2021 Friday A: Climate ‘czar’ John F. Kerry vows tough stance on all climate evildoers in the U.S. as the United States rejoins the Paris Climate Accord, yet another selling out of the United States to globalists.   Meanwhile, in the ‘post-COVID-19 world,’ the TSA announces plans to hire another 6,000 agents so the liberals can increase the numbers of their secret police at all airports across the nation.  Man, that Chi-Vi is permitting our government to skip down the totalitarian path.  Elsewhere, in the Free World of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, proposes sweeping election reforms in his state.   Finally, the Minneapolis Police Department are beefing up security both at the courthouse and around the city as the Derek Chauvin trial looms on the horizon. 
  54. 2021 Friday B: Boko Haram thugs in Niger kidnap 27 students from a boarding school and carry them off into the jungle.  The SOBS must be short on wives, again.  Next, the Kremlin warns the West to pull back from sanctions related to Alexei Navalny’s prison sentence, ‘or else.’  Speaking of thugs, the ‘paradise of Iran’ demands the U.S. repeal and remove ALL sanctions on their country imposed by President Donald J. Trump.  Don’t worry, grand ayatollah, the U.S. is going to rejoin the flawed nuclear deal the Obama-Biden administration participated in with your country.  Speaking of this deal, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasts the Biden-Harris administration for reentering this deal.  Under President Trump, the Iranians were on their knees begging for mercy.  Now, it’s back to business as usual. 
  55. 2021 Friday C: Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department imposes travel sanctions on 43 Belorussian officials and bigwigs over the actions of their corrupt government.  The Biden administration loves Iran but wants to punish Russia and Belorussia.  WTF?  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is attempting to rally ‘quad democracies’ to pushback against a belligerent communist China.  Why?  The Biden Family and many members of his administration LOVE the Chi-Coms.  Must be just for show.
  56. 2021 Friday D: RINO Senator Jon Thune says the ‘GOP is engaging in ‘cancel culture’ by going after the losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump as well as the RINO senators who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump.’  Will these losers ever learn their flipping lessons?  It appears not.  The American people will have to show them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. begins admitting the first batch of illegal aliens begging for asylum into the country even though south Texas mayors are begging the federal government not to do this because they have no support they can provide them.  Let ‘em freeze.   Elsewhere, the feds are pushing to kick the National Rifle Association’s top lawyer off the bankruptcy case.   Finally, good citizens are working alongside police in Oakland’s Chinatown to catch the thug or thugs who have been attacking Chinese citizens.  We still suspect when the culprit is caught, it will be another minority.  Speaking of the Chinese, Great Britain is welcoming in thousands of Hong Kong’s citizens who are escaping the crackdown by the thugs in Beijing.  In the next five years, London could welcome in as many as 300,000 people along with their dependents.
  57. 2021 Friday E: ERCOT says the catastrophic collapse of the power grid in Texas which led to massive blackouts would have occurred anyway even without the severe weather storm.  Still, the operators have gotten the power system up-and-running.  What the heck has happened to nuclear energy?  It’s safe, reliable, cheap, and lasts forever.  All we need do is to find a way to recycle used nuclear fuel so we can reuse it.   Elsewhere, Dolly Parton nixes the idea of putting a statue dedicated to her in the Tennessee State Capitol Building.  Who would want such an honor in this world of left-wing pansy cancel culture?  Revered today, torn down and defaced tomorrow.  Finally, doctors at Johns Hopkins University say ‘herd immunity for the Chi-Com Flu can be achieved by April 2021.’
  58. 2021 Friday F: We learn that the Wuhan Institute of Virology has received U.S. money to study dangerous diseases including the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chinese Virus, millions of vaccines for this lab-engineered malady continue to linger in freezer facilities across the country.  Joe Biden says ‘NO such vaccine existed when he came into office’ but we know that a man who asks his wife, ‘where we’re at’ every day he awakens in the White House residence does not know very much, including that he and his wife received their vaccines ahead of his taking the oath of office.  Speaking of the Chi-Com pandemic, the Baby Evita- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez (birth name) is jumping on the anti-Andrew “Killer” Cuomo bandwagon and much like NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, driving the dagger into the beleaguered Empire State governor.   Wow.  Just like piranha fish.
  59. 2021 Friday G: The American Civil Liberties Union asks SCOTUS to declare all-male draft ‘unconstitutional.’  Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian files for divorce from entertainment mogul Kanye West.  Next, a day after its passage, a federal court strikes down South Carolina’s abortion bill, one that prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.  The bill is designed to prohibit abortion chop shops such as Planned Parenthood from operating in minority communities where they murder mostly minority unborn children, sell the fetal body parts to scientists, Satanists, and other sick f**ks, and then donate money back to the Democratic Socialist Party of the United States.  WTF?  Meanwhile, Representative Mark Green says, ‘the Biden immigration plan is pretty flipping crazy.’  Amen.  Illegal alien hunting licenses, anyone?  Next, Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO., to Newsmax TV: “Follow the Trump template to restore the economy.”   Finally, following Nikki Haley’s failed attempt to meet with President Donald J. Trump at Mar-A-Lago after BLASTING the 45th president and the man who made her ambassador to the United Nations, Senator Lindsey Graham has embarked on a peace mission to see the president.  Interesting Note- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered all flags to fly at half-mast for Rush Limbaugh.
  60. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 109,901,931 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,850.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, UP 2,253, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 31 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 168,862 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  61. 2021 Friday 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: 3,514,246 confirmed cases, 48,411 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 428 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 335,340 confirmed cases, 4,868 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: South Carolina- currently, they have 497,937 confirmed cases, 8,213 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 741,934 confirmed cases, 5,509 confirmed deaths, and 688,184 confirmed recoveries.     
  62. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,816 cases, +10 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,696 confirmed recoveries, +46 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Maggot-eating scum.   NOTE- communists lie.  They ALWAYS LIE.  They lie about everything.  They cover up dastardly deeds like that POS moronic New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and when threatened with exposure, they begin making threats.  Scumbags, all of them scumbags.
  63. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,494.32, UP 0.98 points (+0.003%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,874.46, UP 9.11 points (+0.066%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,906.71, DOWN 7.26 points (-0.19%).  Although stocks are jumping up and down, we still anticipate the collapse of the U.S. economy as long as (1) businesses don’t reopen in BLUE states; (2) Joe Biden allows the Third World to flood into the United States; (3) economic idiots are running the show in the ‘Biden administration;’ and (4) fossil fuel production is collapsing thanks to Green New Deal policies being implemented by the frigging Democratic-Socialists.
  64. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,783.10 per troy oz., +5.70 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, +0.12 (+0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,282.20 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.84%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,379.80 per troy oz, +21.00 (+0.89%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.01 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000018 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.95 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.  Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1635 with a $20 million pot up for grabs. Here are the numbers- 27, 32, 47, 50, 53, and Mega 04.  Out of 52,450 winning tickets, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $421 apiece.

The next live album put out by UFO, “TNT- Live in Texas 1979’ came out on April 05, 1994 and features a hard-rocking set by the legendary British rockers while on tour in Texas.  The lineup featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Paul Chapman (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Paul Raymond (keyboards/rhythm guitar) which is a glorious lineup.  Sure, fans love Michael Schenker as who doesn’t but Chapman was a superb replacement for the fiery German axman.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider making it a part of your collection, you will be so glad to own it.  Your friends will flock to your house to join in a listening session and if you have amp-like speakers in your home, turn the volume way up and rock out.  We guarantee you will love it…

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY FEBRUARY 19, 2021

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

Friday, February 19, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[ii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[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.

[vi] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

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

[viii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  On Tuesday, 18-January-2011, we promoted the album, “Rumours.”  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

Michael Flynn, over his ‘reported dealings with Russia.’  Thank you, FBI Director James Comey, thank you, Hillary Clinton, thank you, Barack Hussein Obama, James Clapper, John Brennan, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and all the rest of the conspiratorial scum.  Meanwhile in Orange County, California, actor Harrison Ford crashes into a field.  Many suspect he was smoking the wild wood weed.
  51. 2018 Tuesday: In Israel, Israeli cops recommend the prosecution of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on allegations of bribery, fraud, and breach-of-trust bull crap.   Now, here’s something you normally don’t hear about- a United Airlines Flight 1175- flying from San Francisco, California, to Honolulu, Hawaii, upon coming into Oahu airspace requests and is given emergency landing following an engine cowling coming off during flight.  Yikes.  Meanwhile, Moscow demands YouTube and Instagram to remove videos of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.
  52. 2019 Wednesday: Iran marks the 40th anniversary of their fascist Islamist republic by driving its citizens to participate in massive street marches while calling for the death of America and the death of Israel.  Who doesn’t love a good old Islamo-fascist street fest?   Elsewhere, Venezuelan interim President Juan Guaidó announces that he is working to restore the ties of his nation with Israel, ties that were severed by anti-Semitic thug dictator Hugo Chavez. 
  53. 2020 Thursday:  The Israeli Air Force launches a strike on Iranian targets in the Syrian capital of Damascus.  The Syrian government claims to have intercepted the Israeli missiles but folks, if the Israelis set out to get someone or something, they get it or them.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, the Chinese Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Wuhan Flu, is running amok in communist China what with the reporting of 15,152 new cases of the coronavirus 254 deaths.  Elsewhere, Tokyo reports its first fatality related to this rapidly growing pandemic.  Finally, the government of Venezuela announces that it’s going to take the U.S. to the International Criminal Court on charges of ‘crimes against humanity.’
  54. 2021 Saturday: FIRST- the second impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump ends with a vote of 57-43, 10 votes shy of the number required to convict.  Seven scurrilous Republicans joined their ‘fellow’ Democrats to convict.  Richard Burr and Pat Toomey who are retiring as well as the typical RINOs- Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and now Bill Cassidy.  As for “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, at first we heard he was going to vote to convict and then the AP said he wouldn’t.  We guess he licked his finger, held it up in the air, felt the direction public opinion was going, and elected NOT to vote to convict his wife’s former boss.  It’s over but is it ever over?  We expect to see the Dems via federal prosecutors sometime in late 2023-early 2024 file federal charges in court accusing the former president of these very same crimes, rather like what that putz Jimmy Comey did to Hillary Clinton by first clearing her of mishandling classified info, dirtying her up again, and then clearing a second time a couple of days out from the 2016 Presidential Election.   For the Dems to pull this off, they may have to keep Antifa members who participated in the January 6 riots so they can use them to testify against Trump, sort of like how they kept members of the Trump campaign locked up, you know, trying to ‘sweat them.’
  55. 2021 Saturday A: Earlier in the day, the Democrat House managers held a vote to call witnesses and by a margin of 55-45, it passed.  However, after some whispered speaking, they decided to include one little tidbit of ‘witness testimony’ from Jaime Herrera-Beutler in which, hearsay from a conference call between Kevin McCarthy and President Trump was admitted.  Both sides agreed to its inclusion but then nothing more on witnesses because Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, said that would open the door to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Mayor Muriel Bowser, and to others who have control over securing the Capitol Building and the District of Columbia.  We would have loved to have seen Speaker Pelosi answer questions as to WHY, if she believe the capitol was in imminent danger, why she and Mayor Bowser did not take President Trump on his offer of 10,000 National Guardsmen.  Meanwhile, there was some speculation earlier today as to whether a SECRET impeachment vote could have occurred in the spirit of Soviet Union’s show trials that would have sunk former President Trump.  It did not come to fruition. 
  56. 2021 Saturday B: Senator Cruz went on to say that he believes left-wing social media blew up last night demanding witnesses because it was clear the “C-Team” House managers were blowing it big time.  Senator Cruz said that if the Dems wanted witnesses, the GOP would call numerous witnesses so the House managers pulled back from this attempted ‘Hail Mary’ pass.  The senator also went onto say that he believes Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is dealing with out-of-control chaos in that last night, EVERYONE agreed that witnesses were not required whereas this morning Jamie Raskin and his fellow Democrat hacks were demanding them.  Cruz concluded that IF the Dems wanted witnesses, this could drag the bogus impeachment proceedings out to late February or into March, derailing much of Joe Biden’s agenda.
  57. 2021 Saturday C: Regarding the impeachment trial, after the trial wrapped up yesterday, CNN attempted to come to the rescue of the floundering House managers by dropping a story of the ‘phone call between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and President Trump in which, the president said that the January 06, 2021 Capitol Hill rioters were more impassioned over the 2020 Elections than McCarthy was.  This led to Ms. Herrera-Beutler and the Senator Mike Lee phone call, strange information the Democrats tried to inject into the proceedings and then wisely retreated from. 
  58. 2021 Saturday D: Former Acting Deputy Secretary of DHS- Ken Cuccinelli- was telling Newsmax that ‘the DHS is responsible for securing all federal buildings and monuments in Washington, D.C., with the exception of two: the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Capitol, both of which have their own police forces.’  He went on to say that he ‘was shocked by the lack of preparedness on that day’ and pointed out that when help was offered to D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, she rejected the offer, to stay away.  He pointed out that the National Guard is not a rapid deployment force, that it has to be pre-deployed and the armed for the mission at hand.  Technically, Nancy Pelosi does not have the authority to call the National Guard but could have told Mayor Bowser to do it which she would have then requested but none of this happened.  This is why so many are skeptical that the mob was spontaneous or that Trump called it into being.   
  59. 2021 Saturday E: Thane Rosenbaum told Newsmax that the Dems ‘blew the second impeachment’ by putting all their marbles in one basket, the charge of Donald J. Trump inciting insurrection against his own government..  He went on to say that ‘the president’s own words on January 6, 2021 cleared him of any and all charges of incitement.  Bill McGinley- former White House Cabinet secretary- says the Dems relied on newspaper stories which is bull crap.  He says they totally missed the mark whereas the defense team continually cited case law.  He also said that IF the Dems had gotten witnesses, they would have opened a Pandora’s box that would have destroyed them.  What they also didn’t want was the defense’s request that IF witnesses were to testify, they would have to do it in person.  Chef Lilah at the AICPENDBLOG.COM said it was all emotional and that listening to Manager Raskin’s attempts at sobbing made her sick.  
  60. 2021 Saturday F: Although no one in the Democratic Party ever expressed outrage at black men knocking out white people across the country, what they call “polar bear hunting,’ Vice President Kamala Harris is now speaking out against ‘rising waves of assaults on Asian Americans.’  We agree, it’s horrible and it must stop; however, why didn’t Kamala say something about all the attacks on white folks over the course of the past year?  Hypocrisy.   We also suspect that when the Oakland, California, attacker is apprehended, he will be a fellow Asian or other minority.  It always turns out like this…
  61. 2021 Saturday G: Oxford University says that it will test COVID-19 vaccine response among children for the first time as demands across the country for schools to reopen continue increasing.  Speaking of the Chi-Com virus, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo whose policies killed far too many people in his state’s retirement and nursing homes now finds himself forced to duck inquiring reporters who want the TRUTH.   In other news about the Wuhan Virus, the Pentagon approves 20 additional teams to carry the vaccine to greater numbers of the American people.  Next, the White House DEMANDS answers from the Chi-Coms as to early data on the virus.  They stepped up these demands following the World Health Organization’s backtracking from their original clearing of the Wuhan Institute of Virology as the source of the disease.
  62. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 108,428,619 confirmed cases, +384,681, 2,389,860, confirmed deaths, +11,872, and 60,778,149 confirmed recoveries, +273,410.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,825,007 confirmed cases, up 109,859 from yesterday’s reporting, 488,152 confirmed deaths, UP 4,457, 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 25 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 158,757 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 45,138 people.  
  63. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,469,853 confirmed cases, 46,435 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 425 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 330,427 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Indiana.  Currently, they have 649,610 confirmed cases, 12,117 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 718,746 confirmed cases, 5,304 confirmed deaths, and 651,522 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Turkey.  The former Ottoman Empire has 2.579,816 confirmed cases, 27,377 confirmed deaths, and 2,468,419 confirmed recoveries. 
  64. 2021 Saturday J: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball results.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3534 with a $20 million jackpot on the line.   Here are the winning numbers: 18, 22, 38, 40, 42, and Mega 13.  Out of 127,647 winning tickets, the highest were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $13,746.  The three winning tickets were sold at: (1) Papa Liquor in Corona Del Mar, CA 92625; (2) Chevron in Pittsburgh, CA 94565; and (3) Country Store, Fresno, CA 93727.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball, Draw #820 with a $56 million jackpot on the line: 20, 28, 33, 63, 68, and Powerball 20.  Out of 51,833 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,022.
  65. 2021 Saturday K: In the final news of the night, we learned that the worthless loser, “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell- always playing both sides of the aisle- condemns Donald J. Trump after NOT voting to convict.  He blasts him and blames him for all events that happened on January 06, 2021 before, during, and after the Capitol Hill Riots in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs infiltrated Trump supporters and carried out one of the all-time great False Flag operations in the history of the United States.  Later, the earpiece in the ear of Joe Biden told Joe to say, ‘while the final vote did not lead to conviction, the substance of the charge is not in doubt.’  Who told you to mumble this Joe?  Barack Obama or Xi Jinping?  He was not finished there, however- here is what else he said: “Even those opposed to the conviction, like Senate Minority Leader McConnell believe Donald Trump was guilty of ‘dereliction of duty and practically and morally responsible for provoking the violence unleashed on the Capitol.”  There you go- the False Flag effort continues.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he signs yet another executive order banning the use of “Wuhan Virus” when referring to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  We will try to remember that.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On October 10, 1989, the McAuley-Schenker Group returned with its sophomore effort, “Save Yourself.” Joining guitarist Michael Schenker and vocalist Robin McAuley were once again, Steve Mann (guitars/keyboards/backing vocals), Rocky Newton (bass/backing vocals), and Bodo Schopf (drums).  Say what you will about surviving rockers from the 1960s and 1970s in the Era of BIG HAIR in the 1980s, even if these guys succumbed to the ‘hair,’ they still cranked out top grade arena rock that made other practitioners of the art like Judas Priest, Poison, and Twisted Sister appear like the fecal matter they are and still are for those remaining today.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did.

  64. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’

  66. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC and the DNC contained timing devices.

  62. 2020 Saturday B: We now learn that the suspected Russian hack of the U.S. began as far back as March before anyone noticed anything or reported it.  Here are the government departments or entities affected by the Russian FSB thugs: (1) U.S. Treasury Dept.

Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’
  63. 2020 Saturday C: The U.S. Congress is holding a Saturday session on government funding. President Donald J.

  64. 2020 Saturday D: In a humorous note, the Fake News Media is blubbering tears, criticizing the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-Chi-Com China Joe” Biden for closing access to them.  What the hell did you think you dumbasses?   Elsewhere, housing ‘experts’ want the eviction ban extended.  Good for them.  Regarding Chinese Virus-related problems, the GOP wants to bind Chi-Vi aid to limits on federal spending (there’s no money) which throws the outcome of the COVID-19 relief bill into doubt.  Allies of Chi-Com Joe Biden cry, “Foul!”  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the good old ‘Kung Flu,’ the Moderna vaccine has been cleared for emergency use in the United States which will spread the vaccine to greater numbers of people.   
  65. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him having a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot continues coming to light.  He must go.  NOW!  We also learn the Chi-Com ‘100-Year Plan’ is for them to bribe, buy, or blackmail everyone around the world who is in their way.  Time to start dropping some nukes, people!   U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says, “The Democrats are too cozy with the Chi-Coms.”  She’s right.

  67. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,126,125 confirmed cases, +1,617,691, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +11,762, and 42,963,631 confirmed recoveries (again, this number is less than reported a week ago), +361,393.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,629,293 confirmed cases, UP 177,126 from yesterday’s reporting, 317,534 confirmed deaths, UP 1,765, and 7,857,661 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,121.
  68. 2020 Saturday H: 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: 1,827,535 confirmed cases, 22,509 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 281 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 224,594 confirmed cases, 3,168 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state- Ohio. Currently, they have 614,429 confirmed cases, 8,031 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor DeWine.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 372,886 confirmed cases, 3,074 confirmed deaths, and 345,589 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Mao Zedong fever, Maryland and Virginia donate doses of the vaccine to Washington, D.C.
  69. 2020 Saturday I: Folks, even though it’s Saturday, everyone knows EVIL never sleeps so stay tuned for whatever shenanigans the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party in the U.S. are up to today.  Everyone knows whatever it is, it’s going be GOOD!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Now that the J. Geils Band was on an upward trajectory, the band’s old record company, Atlantic Records decided what the heck, we are going to release another best of album, “Best of the J. Geils Band Two” on October 28, 1980.  Once again there were another nine tunes culled from throughout the group’s discography with the label and folks, these are great tunes.  If you have failed to get in on the ground floor with the group’s work, well, this is a superb way in which, you can do it which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and add it to your growing record collection.  Remember- wax is best and old “Pro-China Joe” Biden said in a primary debate that everyone should leave the record player on at night for their young kids and this is one of the albums you would have playing as the little tikes are trying to sleep.  This music is far better than say the music of Maroon Five or any of the modern-day crap you hear on WOKE radio stations.

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

Saturday, December 19, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.

[ii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor. 

[vii] See previous footnote.  

[viii] In 2019, enfeebled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues misleading the public that what President Bill Clinton was in trouble for was his ‘affair’ with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  Although that was questionable, he was in trouble for lying in the Paula Jones case as well as for suborning perjury in same which inevitable cost him big bucks as well as the right to practice law in his home state of Arkansas for a year.  Speaker Pelosi, STOP LYING to the American people, tell the truth or step down from office and go back home to crime-ridden San Francisco.

[ix] This guy is more of a murderous thug than even his father was.  Still President Donald J. Trump has attempted to bring him and his rat-shit country into modern times.  We shall see.

[x] In 2019 at this point, we are not sure as to whether she will give it yet another go or will remain along the sidelines talking shit.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The J. Geils Band is one of those unique American groups that were an amazing live act but which required time to build up to selling loads of albums.  With remarkable success would come dissension in the ranks but that was for another decade or so away.  Former in Massachusetts in the mid-1960s around the namesake of the band, John “J.” Geils (guitars), Peter Wolf (vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards/vocals), Danny Klein (bass/vocals), Stephen Jo Bladd (drums), and “Magic Dick” (harmonicas/saxophones), the band released its first album, “The J. Geils Band” on November 16, 1970.  The band was a smoking blues-rock band, sort of an American ‘Rolling Stones’ but unique in their own way.  This album opened the door to a national audience and signaled good things to come.  We hope you will investigate this album to your own delight- you will be glad you did.

  64. 2017 Thursday: In a shocking turn of events, the murderer of Kate Steinle—shot while walking on a pier in San Francisco, California, on July 1, 2015 by seven-time felon and five-time deported illegal alien criminal, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a jury of his ‘peers’ (were they illegal aliens?) found the son-of-a-bitch ‘not guilty.’ Within moments of the jury being read, both sides—the prosecutor and the public defender—blamed President Donald J. Trump for the verdict.   The public defender, Matt Gonzalez, reminded the President that ‘he, too, was under investigation by a special prosecutor as was his vice president and attorney-general.’  The only crime Mr. Zarate was found guilty of was ‘felony firearms possession.’  WOW!                
  65. 2018 Friday: Former Republican President George H.W. Bush died on this date at age 94.  His wife of more than 70 years, Barbara Bush, had died in April.  Bush first served as the 43rd vice president under President Ronald Reagan (1981-1989) and then as the 41st president from 1989-1993).  He lost after one term to Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton.

  67. 2020 Monday:  The Trump legal team is in Arizona today meeting with GOP state lawmakers over the apparent out-of-control voter fraud that occurred in the state this election cycle.  Witness after witness after witness- from poll workers to digital specialists- offering reams of disturbing data showing that out-of-state organizers armed with legions of legal teams worked at disenfranchising LEGAL voters in favor of ILLEGAL VOTERS.  Yet, the Arizona secretary of state certified the election in favor of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his concubine, Senator Kamala Harris, D-CA.   Meanwhile, GOP voters are taking to the streets to protest the Chi-Com/Iranian/Democratic Party’s THEFT of the 2020 Presidential Election.
  68. 2020 Monday A: Congressman-elect Burgess Owens, R-UT, is joining forces with other likeminded GOP congressmen to form the Freedom Force with which to push back against “Baby Evita Peron” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Squad members.  This is a duel to the death- we encourage everyone to support the Freedom Force as it seeks to defeat the socialist scum sheltering within the ranks of the Democratic Party.  Meanwhile, the GOP in Georgia is planning several demonstrations and peaceful protests against their state government working on behalf of the Democratic Party.  Elsewhere, Donald Trump Jr. is forming a new super PAC to fight on behalf of Senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler in the Peach State.
  69.  2020 Monday B: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 63,029,075 confirmed cases, +498,075, 1,464,795, confirmed deaths, +8,001, and 40,335,219 confirmed recoveries, +345,435.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 13,609,774 confirmed cases, up 157,269 from yesterday’s reporting, 271,202 confirmed deaths, UP 18 (that’s right), and 6,592,275 confirmed recoveries, UP 41,095.  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: 1,226,132 confirmed cases, 19,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 17,925 confirmed cases, 242 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 168,781 confirmed cases, 2,828 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Connecticut, currently, they have 117,295 confirmed cases, 5,020 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 336,160 confirmed cases, 2,864 confirmed deaths, and 323,224 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Spain: they have 1,648,187 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 495,069 confirmed deaths and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Monday C: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,638.64, DOWN 271.73 points (-0.91%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,198.74, DOWN 7.11 points (-0.058%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,621.63, DOWN 16.72 points (-0.46%).  Price of GOLD: $1,775.40 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $22.65 per troy oz., +0.116 (+0.51%).  Price of PLATINUM: $968.60 per troy oz., +2.70 (+0.28%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,405.90 per troy oz., -33.80 (-1.39%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.43 per #, +0.014 (+0.41%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $45.06, -0.28 (-0.62%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.58 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Just for a hoot, $1 U.S. = 76.89 Afghan Afghani.        
  71. 2020 Monday D: NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg says that the Chi-Coms pose a significant risk to member nations of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization which the communist Chinese do so all European nations suckered into participating in the Belt and Roads Initiative must separate from Beijing NOW.  Meanwhile, Congress returns from its Thanksgiving recess with a number of major spending bills still on the agenda.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy announces its fire-ravaged San Diego based amphibious assault ship will be decommissioned after having suffered a mysterious blaze that nearly totaled the ship earlier in the year.  Finally, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is investigating out of state and foreign entities attempting to set up residence in the Peach State so they can interfere in the two U.S. Senate run-off races in January.

  73.  2020 Monday F: Another one bites the dust: California Congresswoman Christy Smith of the 25th House District concedes the election to Republican candidate Mike Garcia.  Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi loses yet another seat bringing her majority down even further.  This is what happens when you promote socialism in a FREE nation.  Meanwhile, schools in San Francisco are considering renaming 42 of the schools within their city, removing names such as “Lincoln” and “Feinstein” in an effort to remove racist or oppressive names so as not to cause students to break down in tears.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Apple, Nike, and Coca-Cola deny they employed lobbyists to weaken a bill in Congress that would force U.S. companies to put disclaimers on their products regarding using Chi-Com concentration camp inmates to manufacture their products.  We find this shocking.  Everyone at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will buy no more products from these three companies and advise that you don’t either until they sever ties with Beijing and their thugs and the communists release all the Uighurs currently being held in captivity.   Apple, Nike, and Coca-Cola say if they must do this, it will harm supply chains.  Well, how about making your fricking products in the United States again?
  74. 2020 Monday G: For the second straight month in a row, Americans signed less mortgage contracts than they did the previous month due to lack of available housing what with COVID-19 lockdowns halting construction as well as lack of confidence that if “Pro-China Joe” Biden actually schemes his way into the White House, lockdowns and harsher restrictions will create havoc with employment.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#PM01.1e Southern Cross #5 08-19-16 (400)

 

Phil Manzanera released his fifth solo album, “Southern Cross” in 1990. Always among the most eclectic and innovative guitarists in the world, Manzanera always attempted to play the guitar in ways in which, it did NOT sound as though it was a guitar. We love the second part of the Roxy Music triumvirate’s amazing guitar chops and this album rocks the socks off the uninitiated and sends the ‘initiated’ to the depths his roots as a young kid growing up in Venezuela and Cuba. Please, visit Amazon.com where you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#BF01.1e The Bride Stripped #5 08-19-16 (400)

 

We have mentioned that sometimes, Bryan Ferry hits the nail on the head and other times, he leaves his listeners stumbling around in the dark searching for a theme. Well, “The Bride Stripped Bare” (1978), is an album that has some dark movements but then, every album Ferry records is a stunning individualistic effort that fans enjoy. Ferry defined Roxy Music, Roxy Music defined Ferry, and one can see and hear common threads roaming through the works of each.  We hope you will look for this fabulous album out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music. We know you will enjoy it.

#PM01.1a Diamond Head #1 08-19-16 (400)

 

In 1975, Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera released his first solo album, the well-received “Diamond Head.” Phil ranks among the best guitarists of the decade as he brings a minimalistic approach to playing the guitar, saying MUCH with little effort. This album contains NINE songs upon which, he has a who’s who of British rockers as well as some bandmates from Roxy Music joining him and what is even better, some of the guests provide some stellar vocals, which is why we wholeheartedly promote this CD to all fans of the band and of its individual parts. Please, look for it wherever you purchase the best in rock music- you will definitely enjoy it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#TT001.1c Cellophane #3 12-25-2019 (400)

The Troggs returned with No. 3, “Cellophane,” on March 08, 1967, once again, another powerful rocker to be sure. The band featured Reg Presley (vocals), Chris Britton (guitars/backing vocals), Pete Staples (bass/backing vocals), and Ronnie Bond (drums). This band was red hot in its day and the cover tunes mixed with some originals were absolutely amazing. One of the great unsung bands of its time when one considers the Beatles, the Yardbirds, the Stones, the Kinks, the Who, the Hollies, Them, and the Zombies, the Troggs should be right up there with them in that pantheon of rock music greats. Please, use the link and visit Amazon.com so you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.
