Currently, Joe is shy 181,635 deaths.

  64. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,000 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,738 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Kenya, the birthplace of the United States’ 44th ‘president’ Barack Hussein Obama: 163,976 cases of the virus, 2,928 confirmed deaths and 113,057 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

In Solomon Islands Dollar, one greenback equals 7.9957 and in Somali Schilling, a buck equals 575.00 and in South African Rand, one dollar equals 13.99 of theirs.[xviii]      The reason as to WHY Wall Street had such a down cycle today is due to fears of oncoming rampant inflation thanks to the inabilities of the Biden regime to continue the Trump economic miracle.  The Bidenistas will bring about a new Great Depression- mark our words.  Businesses are raising prices at the highest rates since the 1980s.   In other news, cryptocurrencies value is higher than that of the U.S. dollar.

  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Untermensch in Gaza Strip continue attacking Israel, enfeebled old Joe Biden finds himself under assault from both the right and left.  The right wants Israel supported and defended while the left wants to see Israel destroyed.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day stands with Israel to a member.  We say use the neutron bomb on the human scum inhabiting the Gaza Strip and then reclaim the land for Israel.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore says that ‘Joe Biden’s unemployment benefits are keeping Americans out of the workforce.’  Amen.  Regarding the abandonment of Israel by the fraudulent Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump says that ‘Biden’s weakness is causing the massive surge in violence across the Middle East.’  Amen to that, too.   
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News II– In other fascinating news, WOKE leftists are jumping on Andrew Yang for announcing his support for Israel.  And the left eats its own.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is sending out ‘signed letters’ to recipients of COVID-19 relief checks.  Big whoop.  Stick the letters where the sun don’t shine Mr. (Bogus) President.   Finally, new rules coming out of the Biden regime would force doctors and other medical professionals to enable those suffering from gender dysphoria to undergo whatever treatments and irreversible processes they demand.  (Note- while I hate to say this, I am beginning to think that Joe Biden could very well be the Antichrist- Olaf).
  69. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Chile- a nation with a high rate of vaccination against the Chi-Vi is currently experiencing a tidal wave of new Bat Fu Yuk cases thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, a key officer at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that ‘annual booster shots may be required against the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the China Virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the ‘VID.  No thank you, we are not getting the vaccinations no matter what.  Elsewhere, analysis by the New York Times shows that the extremely overcautious Centers for Disease Control are sowing mass confusion over the danger of the Wuhan Flu.   Finally, Missouri and Tennessee are joining other states slashing Chi-Vi relief payments to their citizens.  It’s time for these people to return to work.  Now.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– In Russia, at least seven are dead in a school shooting in that country.  The police have apprehended the suspect.   Next, the Siberian doctor who treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has mysteriously disappeared.   Next, left-wing lawmakers in the U.S. (you know the scum) are screeching about ‘Israel’s brutality’ in defending itself from the 130 or so rockets fired into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  You know our feelings on the topic.  Elsewhere, Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says that Iran is trying to cause problems in the Straits of Hormuz by swamping U.S. Navy and Coast Guard assets with swift boats.’  We say, ‘sink these riffraff scumbags.’
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– The Vatican warns U.S. bishops NOT to deny drooling old Joe Biden communion.  (Note- we know where Pope Francis stands which is why many Catholics are abandoning the church.  The man’s a Marxist and one cannot serve Marx and God simultaneously.  Olaf).   Next, the new White House deputy director for political strategy and outreach- Natalie Montelongo- says, ‘ICE does not have to exist.’  Next, a new poll says that almost two-thirds of Americans believe social media platforms are ripping our country asunder.   Elsewhere, Caitlyn Jenner, running for the governor’s job in California chose to golf on Election Day rather than to cast a vote for President Donald J. Trump.  Hence why we like John Cox.
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, and other members of the GOP are calling for a new probe into the shootings that occurred at the baseball field a few years back when an enraged Bernie Sanders supporter shot several people and either seriously wounded or killed them before being shot and killed by Capitol Hill Police officers.  After all, a week or two ago, FBI Director Chris Wray announced the verdict of ‘suicide by cop.’  Wow.
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In Georgia, prosecutors are going to seek the death penalty against the sex-addicted POS who shot up a pair of Asian massage (brothel) parlors killing eight people, six of whom were Asian women whom the left then leapt atop as a symbol of anti-Asian hate ginned up by the China Virus.   Good.  Convict and execute that punk.  Next, in related legal news, the reason for the divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates is because back in 2019, Melinda was upset that hubby Bill was too close to Jeffrey Epstein, the pervert and pedophile.  We’d throw the guy out, too.  Elsewhere, in other legal news, New York state is celebrating a big victory as a court in the Empire State has thrown out the bankruptcy filings by the National Rifle Association.  Finally, trainer Bob Baffert of the Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, claims that an ointment he used on the horse may have caused its ‘positive’ for doping.  The investigation continues.
  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– Now that Great Britain is going to require photo IDs to vote, President Donald J. Trump points out the obvious that so, too, should the United States.  Of course, to leftists, photo IDs are RACIST.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he is supporting Glenn Youngkin, the GOP candidate for Virginia governor, in the upcoming election.   Another stalwart candidate in upstate New York- Sheriff Mike Carpinelli- is putting his hat into the ring to replace that angry moron, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  We hope he can beat that POS.   Elsewhere, the ex-Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund defended his performance on January 06, 2021, the day of the largest FALSE FLAG POLITICAL OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES and said he feared the ‘appearance of a coup d’ êtat.’   Finally, Wisconsin is considering a law making it mandatory to play the National Anthem in every public venue.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the BORDER CZAR now for 49 days and has yet to take her butt down to the southern border.  What the hell is up with that?
  76. 2021 Tuesday O: Environmental News I– Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, has extended the drought declaration to 41 counties.  It is sad that the state continues allowing fresh water to flow out to the Pacific Ocean rather than confining it behind the walls of new dams.   Meanwhile, the feds have approved the building of the first offshore wind farms.  Elsewhere, in a blow to the Green Meanies, a new report says that temperatures so far in 2021 are far lower than they have been in recent years.  Not good for idiots such as the ‘Squad’ and their push for the Green New Deal.  A win for us.
  77. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1658 with a $402 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 07, 08, 20, 36, 39 and Mega 22.  Out of 163,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $10,622 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys’ third album, “Surfer Girl,” released on September 16, 1963, was their greatest to date yet spawning numerous hits.  The band’s lineup was the same- Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals)- but Marks would be leaving soon.  The group knocked out a load of hits on this record- the title track to be sure but also “Catch a Wave,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “In My Room,” and “Hawaii.”  Brian Wilson was having to write at a much more furious pace what with the emphasis being on hits.  Father Murray Wilson, the group’s manager, kept them on a tight schedule of writing, recording, and performing, raking in as much money as was humanly possible and then some.  Great music to be sure, music we hope you will check out and enjoy because the Beach Boys are one of the all-time great American groups to be sure.

  53. 2008 Friday: The price of crude oil hits an astounding $125.98 per barrel.  This is not good for the economies of the world.  Meanwhile, Hezbollah continues a powerplay in Lebanon in general and in Beirut in particular as they continue battling with government forces.

  56. 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad.  (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge).  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.  A decade from now, they will be surpassing us.

Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House.  Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup.  We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime.  Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.

  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries.   Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?  
  66. 2020 Saturday A: In Tullahoma, Oklahoma, famed rock-and-roller, Little Richard, died at age 87.  Little Richard[vi] was famous for so many songs but “Lucille,” “Tutti-Frutti,” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly” are the ones that leap out.  Check him out.

  68. 2021 Sunday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 279,996 chi-vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 182,613 deaths.

  73. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The Biden regime has hired 17 new immigration judges to staff the overflowing immigration courts.  These very same judges were offered the same roles under the Donald J.

  74. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Rep. Andy Biggs, 5th congressional district, says that new evidence shows the FBI has been lying to Congress.   We’ve known that for a long time.  Next, Senator Ben Sasse, RINO-NE, is going to introduce legislation that will permit the repurposing of unemployment benefits into hiring bonuses to get everyone to return to work instead of sitting at home and being good little socialists, drawing benefits.   Next, the NCAA is in discussions with the Department of Justice (WHY?) over the new plan of allowing student athletes to make money from their names, likenesses, and apparel.  They should have been able to have done this for a long time.
  75. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– The U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to make a ruling as to whether criminals sent home to house arrest during the Chi-Com pandemic will have to return to prison or not.  Spoiler alert- YOU KNOW the DOJ will cut them all loose.  Just saying.   In other news, NASA is blasting the Chi-Coms over their unprofessional behavior in being unable to control the re-entry of their 22-ton Long March rocket that crashed just west of the Maldives into the Indian Ocean early this morning.  The flipping Chi-Coms.  Like the Soviets, communist simply do not give a flying f**k about the lives and property of other human beings.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys are one of those American success stories, one that NO one at the time had any idea as how far it would go.  Dennis Wilson loved surfing and brought that love of riding the waves home with him.  Brother Brian- inspired by his brother started writing tunes.  A talented, musical family, Brian played bass, piano, and sang while older brother Dennis played drums and could sing.  Youngest brother Carl could play guitar, and their sad started seeing money signs although he was abusive as hell and put them down every opportunity he had.  Mike Love joined his cousins on vocals while neighbor David Marks joined on rhythm guitar and vocals.  Brian could hear all the harmonies in his head and soon the group began to form and chose the name, ‘the Beach Boys.’  Their first album, “Surfin’ Safari” came out on October 01, 1962, and it set the world on fire.  One of the oldest American rock groups, the Beach Boys touched off the California sun and surf craze.  The songs were pretty simple but hey, it was the early 1960s, the Vietnam War was not yet in motion, anything was possible and so it was.  Thus, we have some classic tunes on this album, “Surfin’ Safari,” “409,” and “Surfin’.”  Great music if there ever was which set the world ablaze and put the members of the band on one of the all-time crazy roller-coaster rides.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  You will be glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[ii] We sure hope to present the music of Billy Joel one day.  Remain vigilant.  Thank you.

[iii] When we return to promoting American bands, Cheap Trick will be towards the top so please stay alert.  You won’t want to miss them.

[iv] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

[v] Speculation exists that Obama is gay because many of the people he put around him while in office were gays and some say during his university days, he had a gay affair.  No one truly knows but he sure did a heck of a lot of stuff for the LGBTQIA+ movement

[vi] Not sure as to when we will do the music of Richard Penniman, i.e., “Little Richard,” but when we do, we will do the music of all the great rockers.  Stay tuned.

1954 Wednesday: At Dien Bien Phu, French troops fighting at Claudine 5 are shocked to see a platoon of Moroccan soldiers cut their way through the wire and cross over to surrender to the enemy. The People’s Army immediately launched attacks on this site which cost the French Foreign Legionnaires at least seven men. Once the attack was repulsed through superior force of arms, the remaining Moroccan troops were stripped of their weapons and propelled to join other deserters clustering around the Nam Youm River.

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 198

125. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MAY 05, 2022:

  25. 1920 Wednesday: Democratic President Woodrow Wilson outlaws the Communist Labor Party in the U.S.  Thank God, he did something right.  A century later, the Democratic Party has become the ‘Communist Labor Party.’  He must be rolling over in his grave.

  31. 1944 Friday: The Red Army launches its offensive against Sebastopol in Nazi-occupied Crimea.  The Germans cling to the city like rats with many of their Rumanian allies throwing down their weapons and surrendering- the Rumanians know the jig is up whereas the Germans will fight as long as possible to delay the Red Army’s progress.  Meanwhile, the British release Mahatma Gandhi from prison.
  32. 1945 Saturday: The Allies liberate Mauthausen Concentration Camp.  Meanwhile, in the only fatal attack of its kind during World War II, a Japanese balloon bomb exploded on Gearhart Mountain in Oregon, killing the pregnant wife of a minister and five children.  Elsewhere, as the German surrender began to go into effect, the Allies liberated Denmark and the Netherlands.

  35. 1955 Thursday: West Germany became a fully sovereign state.  Meanwhile, the baseball musical, “Damn Yankees” opened on Broadway.  Elsewhere, in Meridien, Connecticut, future Acting U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske is born.  A member of no declared political party, he would serve under President Joe Biden from January 20, 2021, to February 02, 2021.

  48. 2008 Monday: Three men underwent arrest and beating by Philadelphia police officers after a vehicle chase in a scene videotaped by a WTXF-TV news helicopter.  A jury later acquitted the men of attempted murder and all other charges stemming from a shooting that led to their arrests; four of the 18 police officers at the scene suffered firing while several others underwent disciplinary reviews.   Elsewhere, on the New York Mercantile Exchange, U.S. oil futures contracts hit the incredible amount of $122 per barrel.

  57. 2017 Friday: Effective at midnight, an agreement reached by Russia, Turkey, and Iran will establish a ‘safe zone’ in northern Syria through which NO military aircraft will navigate, including American warplanes.  The ‘safe zone’ will also prohibit military action on the ground.   The United Nations is ecstatic that some semblance of civilization will be restored although Syrian military opposition and jihadists such as ISIS refuse to acknowledge or accept.
  58. 2018 Saturday: NASA launched the Mars In Sight lander from California on a flight of more than six months to the red planet, where the robot geologist would dig deeper into the Martian surface than ever before.  Elsewhere, Palestinians are up to no good once again as a large blast erupts near the town of Deir al-Balah blows at least six Palestinians to kingdom come while injuring numerous others.  Hamas thugs point the jihadist finger at the Israelis who point theirs right back.  Sounds like a case of bomb-making gone bad.  Sad.
  59. 2019 Sunday: Due to Palestinian intransigence and transgression over the past several days, four Israeli and 23 Palestinian citizens lie dead and countless others injured.   Meanwhile, at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, at least 41 die and numerous others are injured as a Russian Aeroflot airliner comes back and makes an emergency landing.   Elsewhere, Juan Guido, president of the nation’s National Assembly, says he is considering a request with which to get the U.S. to invade the country and topple the communist POS dictator Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: After the U.S. Supreme Court begins it session hearing arguments from a distance, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg goes to the hospital for what sounds to be an issue with gall or kidney stones.  Politics aside, we wish her a full recovery and a swift return to work.  This woman is amazing, she has survived numerous health crises in her life and always comes back strong.  God bless you.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s charging of those involved in a plot to topple Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro, President Donald J. Trump denies any involvement in the so-called ‘attempted coup.’
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, the COVID-19 update for the day: confirmed cases globally stand at 3,659,271; confirmed deaths are 256,929; and confirmed recoveries are 1,197,735 which is extremely good.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,233,146, confirmed deaths are 71,921, and confirmed recoveries are 163,841.  In the states connected to this blog, stats for California confirmed cases stand at 56,705 while confirmed deaths are 2,309.  Sadly, Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, confirmed cases are 625, confirmed deaths are 17 and confirmed recoveries are 551.  Finally, in Washington state, confirmed cases are 15,557 and confirmed deaths are 862.  No information on confirmed recoveries so Gov. Jay Inslee is behaving just like Gov. Newsom.  Shame on them.  Question: WHY won’t Democrat-controlled states present recovery statistics?  Finally, communist China’s statistics, the place where this curse began remains the same: confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785 same as they were a week ago.  Shame.
  62. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 155,802,002 confirmed cases, +823,116, 3,254,757  confirmed deaths, +14,035, and 133,945,619 confirmed recoveries, +90,024.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,315,190 confirmed cases, UP 40,075 from yesterday’s reporting, 593,097 confirmed deaths, UP 691,[viii] and 26,014,813 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,527.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  63. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, There Have Been 278,256 Chi-Vi Deaths In The United States- feeble old Joe, in another 280.29 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,277 deaths.    The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says the Pfizer vaccine for teens should be approved by next week.

  67. 2021 Wednesday 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 $4.057 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.807 in Hawaii, and $3.495 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Nevada: $3.513.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Ecuador: $1.910 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,251,982,318,772 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.
  68. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Bill Johnson, R-OH 6th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the Dems are paying a ransom to Northern Triangle countries to keep their illegal aliens in their country.   Next, Tony Shaffer, president of the London Center for Policy Research and former President Donald J. Trump 2020 national security adviser says that socialism and the drug wars are driving people to flee Central America and come to the U.S.   Here’s a laugh- the Vermont state senate has passed a bill that will permit ILLEGAL ALIENS the right to vote in their state.  Wow.  Yet, they don’t want Americans to believe in the REPLACEMENT THEORY…
  69. 2021 Wednesday G: Biden Regime News I– Apparently, Joe Biden is eyeing clemencies early on in his career.  We are curious as to whom these people might be.    Next, the Biden regime is seeking a ‘special master’ to look into the seized electronic devices taken from Rudy Giuliani and Victoria Toensing.   Next, Joe Biden says he is ‘open’ to compromise on his corporate tax hike.  We’ll see.  Moving on, the White House is considering subsidies for nuclear power plants to help them meet climate targets.  Speaking of ‘climate warriors,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district), aka “The Fly,” aka “Baby Evita,” aka Sandy Cortez and Senator Ed Markey, CPUSA-MA, are pushing a $10 billion, 1.5-million-strong (of little Marxists) Civilian Climate Corps because the planet has a fever.  F**k these people.
  70. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– We learn today that thanks to the Chi-Vi, 20 million more Americans (many of them probably illegal aliens) were beset by food crises last year which means Joe Biden will be giving taxpayer dollars to illegals.  Can’t have them go hungry now, can we?   Elsewhere, the founder of BioNTech prophesizes that the Chi-Vi pandemic will continue until sometime in mid-2022, a date we are sure the Democrats hope will extend to the 2022 Mid-Term Elections so they can try to steal those elections, too.   In other COVID-19 news, over half of the people in the world’s democracies feel that governments repressed freedoms and liberties.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, blasts the FAKE NEWS MEDIA for labeling the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Mount Rushmore State in the summer a ‘super-spreader event.’  That’s the FAKE NEWS MEDIA, always causing trouble via disinformation and misinformation.  F**k them.  Finally, the U.S. Patent Office- at the direction of Joe Biden- is considering waiving patent rights on the vaccines to fight the Chi-Vi so everyone can jump into mass-producing this crap.   (Interesting tidbit- a U.S. federal court has overturned the moratorium on evictions.  Good.  Someone has to help landlords).
  71. 2021 Wednesday I: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Facebook votes to keep President Donald J. Trump banned but orders another ‘review’ down the road.   Once this news came out, President Trump blasted Facebook, Twitter, and Google as a ‘total disgrace’ (which they truly are).  Meanwhile, we learn that Iowa officials coordinated with BIG TECH to censor all posts related to the 2020 Presidential Election- so says Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch.
  72. 2021 Wednesday J: Political News I– Each day that passes, it appears more and more likely that Rep. Liz Cheney[xix], RINO-WY, is going to be toast as more and more Republicans are turning on the RINOs plaguing the GOP.[xx]  We hope she is out ASAP.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner forms the Abraham Accord Institute with which to continue pushing for peace around the world.   Next, the POS head of the Democratic Party in Lamar County, Texas, who called Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, an “Oreo,” offered his resignation earlier in the day but then Democrats in his county would not accept it.  Gary O’Connor is such a loveable guy; his fellow Dems don’t want to see the scumbag go.  Well, we do.   
  73. 2021 Wednesday K: Foreign News / Overseas News I– the president of El Salvador has taken over the country’s supreme court (look for Joe Biden to do something similar in the U.S.).  Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Columbia over the government raising taxes on its people.  The protesters, stupidly enough, are demanding socialism.   Next, those good-humored mullahs in Iran released a truly hilarious video in which it showed their military forces blowing up the U.S. Capitol Building.  Good.  We should blow their seat of government off the flipping map.  Now.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates security assistance to Afghanistan be continued even as U.S. forces pull out of that hellish country.  Yes.  We must.  Otherwise, we will be fighting them here in the streets of the U.S.  Hell, they are already here coming across the southern border.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is in London meeting with the G7 leaders.
  74. 2021 Wednesday L: Miscellaneous News I– After a report of one child’s death and numerous injuries, Peloton is recalling its treadmills.  Next, following the resignation of a top attorney, Coca-Cola pauses its controversial diversity plan.  Ah, the pause that refreshes.   Meanwhile, the state of Texas stops a Chi-Com energy company from purchasing Lone Star State land next to a military base.  Wow.  Thank you.   Elsewhere, LeBron “King of Fecal Matter” James apologizes for having started the wrong conversation about the police officer who was forced by the actions of Ma’ Khia Bryant to take her life before she stabbed another girl to death.  (Note- LeBron is little more than a BIG IDIOT over-amped on steroids and social media-likes.  Dumb ass).  Speaking of Black Lives Matter, a New Jersey police officer was fired for calling BLM ‘terrorists.’  They are TERRORISTS.  We have no problem calling spades ‘spades.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday M: Miscellaneous News II– Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, says that ‘Broadway will be open 100-percent by September.’  Uh, okay, trying to save your job, are we?  Next, Atlanta is ordered by the courts to reinstate a police officer they terminated who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks last year.  If you recall, Mr. Brooks was cooperating with cops after falling asleep in a drive-through lane at a fast-food restaurant and then began to fight.  Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms made sure Officer Garrett Rolfe was canned so she could maintain her bona fides with the BLM movement.  Glad to see you back, officer.  Moving on, a new law being considered could upend the firearms industry.   Laugh of the day, some POS New York City gunman got himself arrested after police read his social media posts.  Next, Sid Miller, Agriculture commissioner for Texas says that IF farmers are being discriminated against by Joe Biden, join our class action lawsuit.  Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis signs a new budget that will bestow $1,000 bonuses on law enforcement officers and first-responders.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws- First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #1656 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 06, 11, 17, 27, 39, and Mega 19.   Out of 119,647 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $10.335 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Lanes Market in Dorris, CA 90263; (2) Lucky Zone Lottery and Cigarettes in Los Angeles, CA 90014; (3) Chevron in El Monte, CA 91731; and (4) Adobe Beverage and Deli in Petaluma, CA 94954.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #843: 16, 23, 28, 40, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 58,518 winning tickets, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $481 apiece.  Good for them!
  77. 2022 Thursday: You know the drill…looks like the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party WOKE stooges are screwing with our numbers…

[i] Cinco De Mayo commemorates the victory of Mexican rebels over the French Foreign Legion, troops fighting for Emperor Maximillian.  In modern times, restaurants and bars have given it new life so they can increase alcohol and food sales.  Police departments across the land make mass arrests of drunken drivers, thus increasing local municipality coffers.

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] 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.

[vi] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell. We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions. We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Kennedy’s plan went awry from the start as Castro’s forces crushed the incursion by the third day.  The CIA was going to provide the freedom fighters with air cover but then President Kennedy and his brother, U.S. Attorney General Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy got cold feet and left them to their demise.

  43. 1993 Saturday: LAPD police officers found guilty by a jury of their peers of violating Rodney King’s civil rights.  Remember, they pulled Mr. King over after a long car chase and beat the living s**t out of him, unaware that a passerby was recording their actions.   
  44. 1997 Thursday: New Jersey Devils Martin Brodeur is second NHL goalie to score in a playoff game.
  45. 2003 Thursday: U.S. forces get lucky in Iraq as they scoop up one of deposed dictator Saddam Hussein’s half-brothers, Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, the leader of Iraq’s intelligence-gathering agency, the Mukhabarat.  Off he goes to a black site. 
  46. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  65. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Happy Easter to my Christian friends, colleagues, and neighbors.  For my Jewish friends, neighbors, family members, and coworkers, Happy Passover.  Let us hope the world finds peace, especially at this joyous season.


[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group, but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

[iv] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[v] 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.

[vi] 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.

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

22. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 2022

2005 Saturday: Following the filing against him of war crimes charges resulting from U.S. actions in the Iraq War, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld cancels an appearance in Germany, the country where the charges were filed. This also follows a report from the Washington Post regarding a clandestine organization within the Pentagon that allows the U.S. military to skirt cooperation with the Central Intelligence Agency, and which is under direct control of Secretary Rumsfeld. Known as the Strategic Support Branch, it allows military intelligence to do whatever they have to do to ‘question’ jihadist suspects. In some circles, we call this “TORTURE.”

  62. 2013 Tuesday: Chinese researchers discover an ancient human fossil in a cave near Beijing; the 40,000-year-old leg bone shows that it was related to present-day Asians and Native Americans, thus the Chi-Coms would have us believe that they have a claim to North America.  Let’s nuke these SOBs.  
  63. 2014 Wednesday: The European Space Agency researchers detect water vapor on the minor planet Ceres, the largest asteroid and only dwarf planet within the inner Solar System, an utterly amazing find.  Elsewhere, a rare, blue, 29.6-carat diamond, one of the most exceptional ever mined at the Cullinan mine, is discovered about 25 miles northeast of Pretoria, South Africa.
  64. 2015 Thursday: The European Central Bank announces that it is going to follow the same crackpot economic policies of the United States by going to ‘quantitative easing,’ where it is going to print (worthless) Euros with which to purchase government-issued debt instruments.  The Europeans hope that is going to improve the crumbling economy within the Eurozone but all they need do is to look at Barack Obama’s America—disasters loom ahead for the Europeans.  Elsewhere, both the president and prime minister of Yemen resign their offices following the storming of the presidential palace the day prior.

  67. 2018 Monday: The United States- to the shock of millions of Palestinian-lovers- announces that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel.  Anti-Semites go nuts across the U.S. and around the world.   In a speech before the Knesset, Vice President Mike Pence says it will become official in early 2019 with the opening of a brand-new embassy.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate strikes a deal to keep the government open until February 8 by which time they hope to have a funding bill passed.

  71. 2021 Friday A: After massive outrage occurred over Tweeted videos of U.S. National Guard members sleeping in a parking garage in Washington, D.C., surfaced- in 32-degree and colder weather- First Lady Jill Biden went down there for photo ops, kissed, and made nice, and allowed them to return to the Capitol Building.  They were sent to the parking garage once their photo purpose was over- making it appear that the Capitol and the Inauguration was imminent threat of attack by Trump supporters because Democrats have NO LOVE for the American military.  Hence why Governors Greg Abbott, Texas, and Ron DeSantis, Florida, are calling their guard members home or vowing never to send them again.  Excellent.
  72. 2021 Friday B: Pressure is mounting on ‘President’ Joe Biden NOT to hire BIG TECH hacks to flesh out his White House communications department.  Meanwhile, Google is threatening to strip its search engine from Australia (there’s Mozilla, Opera, Bing, Safari, among others) because of a bill there that will charge Google for its news feeds.  BIG TECH trying to crush people and countries again yet loves the Chi-Coms.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Bloomberg News says it might be ‘difficult’ to ban Fox News Channel and Newsmax.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way, you frigging fascists.  Meanwhile, Google is shuttering Loon, an alternative to cellphone towers using balloons.
  73. 2021 Friday C: “Hammering Hank” Aaron baseball great received the COVID-19 vaccine as a way of encouraging fellow black folks to get the vaccine back on January 5.  On January 22, he is dead at age 86.  Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says there is NO way her or her family is getting the vaccine because when white liberals encourage black folks to do something, it never works out good for them.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. Tony Fauci, a guy who’s all over the ballpark and not in a clever way says, he thinks we are plateauing out now what with ‘Usurper Joe’ Biden as our president.  Simultaneously, Great Britain says their variant of the Chi-Vi is not only more contagious but also more deadly.  Wow.   
  74. 2021 Friday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden is pushing stopgap measures while he tries to get Congress onboard with his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, a plan that will be funded with Chi-Com cash. In a sign of an ‘improving Biden economy,’ the ‘46th president’ is pushing for more food stamps like his former boss, Barack Obama, did back during the eight years of Obama-Biden.  Things were so good back then; food stamp usage was at an all-time historic high.  Guess we are returning to the GOOD OLD DAYS.  Likewise, he is pushing his $15 minimum wage increase for all federal workers which also is going to harm the economy.  In other interesting economic/labor news, Amazon.com is demanding IN-PERSON voting in the union vote in COVID-19-afflicted Alabama.  Amazon wants ‘in-person voting’ but in the 2020 Presidential Election, we couldn’t have ‘in person’ voting?  Tells you all you need to know: “86 46.”
  75. 2021 Friday E: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, and Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell plan to get the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump underway and soon.  However, constitutional scholars say you CANNOT impeach a former president.  I guess we shall see.  Former White House economic adviser Peter Navarro says you ‘forget unity’ if this bogus sham moves forward.   Speaking of impeachment, freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green- the famed MTG- has put forth articles of impeachment for the ‘46th president’ over his close ties to the Chi-Coms who are celebrating the NEW ‘Biden administration’ and the departure of Donald J. Trump.  It tells you all you need to know.  Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, also says ‘President’ Joe Biden should immediately nix the bogus impeachment of the out-of-office 45th president.  We concur.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Upon orders from ‘President’ Joe Biden, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers halts construction on the southern border wall.  There goes more interconnected jobs.   Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas says ‘President’ Joe Biden must reconsider stoppage of the Keystone XL Pipeline project.  He won’t.  Moving on, a unanimous vote puts Janet Yellen in as secretary of the U.S. Treasury while a nearly unanimous votes makes U.S. Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, Ret., as the new 28th secretary of Defense.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense David Norquist stepped down on this date.  He served from January 20 until today.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Twitter finally cancels the scumbag ayatollah of Iran for calling death and destruction down upon Donald Trump.  What took you so long?   Speaking of former President Trump, his banks move to cancel him and his banking accounts.  Wow.  This is America?  Meanwhile, the Kremlin welcomes the ‘Biden administration’s’ return to extend the Open Skies Treaty between the U.S. and Russia but would like to see the details.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are importing ‘doctored oil’ from Venezuela so as to sneak it past inspectors seeking to clamp down on oil imports from the totalitarian hellhole.  Elsewhere, in other interesting news, the city of Chicago has already experienced 1,125 violent carjackings just this year.  Who the hell wants to visit the Windy City?

  79. 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: 3,115,704 confirmed cases, 35,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (this number has not changed in a week), 328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 300,420 confirmed cases, 4,131 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New Hampshire: currently, they have 60,294 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and 53,128 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 582,869 confirmed cases, 4,245 confirmed deaths, and 497,578 confirmed recoveries.   
  80. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 88,701 cases, +247, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and 82,468 confirmed recoveries, +36.  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.  Rat-eating scum.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Amazon.com is offering to help the ‘Biden administration’ with distribution of the now-questionable vaccines.  They could have aided the previous president but nope, no flipping way.
  81. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,996.98, DOWN 179.03 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,543.06, UP 12.15 points (+0.09%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,841.47, DOWN 11.60 points (-0.30%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.50 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.56 per troy ounce, +0.009 (+0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,109.10 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.0065 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,365.20 per troy oz, -9.90 (-0.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $51.98 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.55%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000030 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.15 Russian rubles.   In other economic news, U.S. house sales of existing homes hits its highest mark back in 2006 at an 0.22-percent increase due to a slowdown in new home construction.  However, we fear that unless the government provides aid to landlords, the Chi-Coms will become the de facto landowner in the U.S. via using strawman companies to snap up all available real estate.  We cannot permit something as outrageous as this EVER to happen.
  82. 2021 Friday L: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions draw what with a $999 million jackpot up for grabs.  Okay, here’s the numbers for Draw #1627 with NO BIG WINNER(S): 04, 26, 42, 50, 60, and Mega 24.  Out of 1,082,353 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,036 apiece.  UPDATE- although the California Lottery website shows the Mega Millions pot is now $20 million, it still is not showing that someone actually WON the pot, estimated to be $1.1 billion.  News media is reporting a sole winner in Michigan so we will update when we possess the information.  FINAL UPDATE: one person won in Michigan won the big pot worth $1.01 billion.  Congratulations.
  83. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 16, 2007, Sandy Denny’s label released a concise package from the “Live at the BBC” Box Set that came out three days earlier, also called “Live at the BBC.”  This one contained the unreleased tracks augmented with some others so fans who had much of her earlier BBC recordings could latch onto these for a lesser price than the big box.  We are not saying that the box set is not worth it because it most assuredly is, but this is also a good addition because you get some tunes you had no clue ever existed.  We hope you will visit Amazon.com, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, or any other place you shop for the absolute best in music and consider making it a part of your listening day- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] 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.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Billy Preston one day.  We hope you will remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[v] 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.

16. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JANUARY 16, 2022

2021 Saturday: In the aftermath of the Antifa-lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, federal investigators are putting government agencies under the spotlight to see who might have enabled the mobs to enter the Capitol. We see this as a combination of the “Night of the Long Knives” and the “Reichstag Fire” as being used by the Democrats and their RINO stooge allies on behalf of Beijing. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, Facebook- the nation’s self-appointed ministry of truth- is blocking all talk of events associated with Inauguration Day on January 20.

  65. 2021 Saturday:  In the aftermath of the Antifa-lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, federal investigators are putting government agencies under the spotlight to see who might have enabled the mobs to enter the Capitol.  We see this as a combination of the “Night of the Long Knives” and the “Reichstag Fire” as being used by the Democrats and their RINO stooge allies on behalf of Beijing.  Stay tuned.  Meanwhile, Facebook- the nation’s self-appointed ministry of truth- is blocking all talk of events associated with Inauguration Day on January 20.

  67. 2021 Saturday B: Thanks to mismanagement of California’s wildlands by one Democrat (or RINO) governor after another, the Bonita fire continues burning although firefighters believe they are getting it under control.  Elsewhere, now that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is becoming president, caravans with tens of thousands of illegal aliens are forming in Honduras with the goal of flooding across the southern border and into the ‘shadows’ of the United States.  Neutron bombs anyone?

  69. 2021 Saturday D: New Jersey Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy, pseudo dictator of the state, orders all state government workers who can to work from home in advance of the expected protests coming around Inauguration Day.  Remember- we believe the Democrats conspired to set the Capitol Hill riots in motion just as they are conspiring to send their Antifa and BLM Brown Shirts into the streets to carry out a FALSE FLAG OPERATION with which to dirty Trump supporters.  They know what’s coming and we know what’s coming.  Democrat Party-sanctioned violence on January 20.   Meanwhile, many now believe the reason for all the security in Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day with which to ‘prohibit’ attendees of the FAKE PRESIDENT’S inauguration is because very few were going to attend it anyway.  They want to spare decrepit Old Beijing Biden any embarrassment.   Finally, more videos continue coming to light- many filmed by the Antifa dimwits themselves- showing they were the ones behind the storming of the U.S. Capitol and that they did indeed have help from within the building from Capitol Hill cops and Democrat staffers.  More to come on this story…

Trump’s conviction in the second BS impeachment could have long-lasting ramifications for the GOP.  You better believe it.  All the money “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell begged for GOP senators he planned to throw under the bus- Martha McSally, Cory Gardner, David Perdue, Kelly Loeffler, and candidate John James- was for NOTHING.  It won’t happen again.
  72. 2021 Saturday G: Criticism continues befalling “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s ‘economic recovery plan’- if you can call such a mess a ‘plan’- continues to mount.  A job-killing increase in minimum wage across the board, paid parental family leave, $350 billion to help BLUE STATE and LOCAL governments to cover costs for damage THEY caused is making this monstrosity appear dead on arrival- DOA.  Add to that help for illegal aliens, climate change, and all sorts of other crazy stuff and you can smell this brewing disaster from 20 miles away.   Meanwhile, feeble old “Pro-China Joe” Biden proclaims, “Science will be at the forefront of my administration.”  Uh, okay, why don’t you ever listen to science on when fetuses begin to feel pain?  That’s proven science, Joe, not the crazy crap to which, you and your fellow liberals subscribe.  
  73. 2021 Saturday H: Next, the incoming ‘46th president’ continues filling out the U.S. State Department with retreads while at the same time, his incoming press secretary says, ‘all White House visitor logs will be made public’ seeing as how during Obama-Biden, all sorts of oligarchs were meeting with then-VP Biden in secret.
  74. 2021 Saturday I: CIA Director Gina Haspel threatened to quit when President Trump sought to make Kash Patel her deputy back in December.  She should have been fired with FBI Director Christopher Wray long ago.   Meanwhile, the Trump administration carries out its 13th and final federal death row execution.   Next, more Trump pardons expected to come, Steve Bannon among them.   
  75. 2021 Saturday J: Elsewhere, Lou Dobbs of Fox Business Channel says the assault on President Donald J. Trump is second only to what happened to President Abraham Lincoln.’  Next, John McLaughlin tells Newsmax TV that a ‘big backlash is coming.’  Elsewhere, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says the ‘House violated the U.S. Constitution with the rushed second bogus impeachment attempt of President Trump.
  76. 2021 Saturday K: Always up to no good, the Iranians fire loads of missiles into the Indian Ocean which come down perilously close to a commercial freighter plying the waters and 100 miles distant from the U.S.S. Nimitz carrier strike force sailing towards the Persian Gulf.  President Trump: please nuke these wannabe modern day Persian Empire mopes before you leave office. Ronald Reagan sunk their entire navy, let’s do it again.
  77. 2021 Saturday L: In the first game of the NFL Divisional Playoff Weekend, it’s (1) Los Angeles Rams, 18 (10-7) @ Green Bay Packers, 32 (14-3).  Coming up: (2) Baltimore Ravens, 3 (12-6) @ Buffalo Bills, 17 (15-3).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Live at the BBC” (January 05, 2007) is a four-disc box set released by Fairport Convention that features almost every member who has ever played with the group during the years 1967-1974.  Every aficionado of rock music knows that BBC releases are coveted works of art producing music in forms typically not available elsewhere.  Many live albums typically pick and choose which cuts will make the grade, but BBC releases give you the crème de la crème of a band you may never find anywhere else.  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.

ENDNOTES:

[i] 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.

[ii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock star- Peter Frampton- as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.  The actual album, “Frampton Comes Alive” appeared on Thursday, 15-May-2014.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection.

[iii] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.

[iv] We have no clue as to when- or if- we will ever get around to promoting the music of Judas Priest.  Stick around long enough and you might be here on the day when we do.

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

55. 2020 Thursday: In the morning, a disheveled and highly incoherent Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, rambled on about how she was going to send the ‘impeachment articles’ to the Senate when she ‘damned well pleased.’ It is becoming clearer and clearer to all non-senile onlookers that the Speaker has little to no clue as to where she is or what she is saying.

  50. 2015 Friday:  French police kill two of the jihadists that attacked Charlie Hebdo magazine where the two Islamists murdered 12 and wounded another 11 for their portrayal of the degenerate Prophet Mohammad.  The third terrorist turned himself in to keep the cops from killing him on sight like the mongrel cur he is. 
  51. 2016 Saturday: The United States sends a ‘message’ to North Korea, belligerent as ever, with a B-52 flyover.  This is in answer to Kim Jong Un’s claim that he exploded a hydrogen bomb.

  53. 2018 Tuesday: Following the passage of legislation the preceding month, the first homosexual marriages begin occurring in Australia.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump cuts a program that permits 200,000 El Salvadorans to continue living in the United States.  Another campaign promise fulfilled.   However, in a victory for illegal aliens, a federal judge blocks President Trump from ending the DACA program.
  54. 2019 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump conducts an Oval Office address regarding the shutdown of the federal government and his need for funds to construct the southern border wall.  Trying to fulfill yet another promise.
  55. 2020 Thursday: In the morning, a disheveled and highly incoherent Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, rambled on about how she was going to send the ‘impeachment articles’ to the Senate when she ‘damned well pleased.’  It is becoming clearer and clearer to all non-senile onlookers that the Speaker has little to no clue as to where she is or what she is saying.  Even Senate Democrats- like Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Sen. Joe Manchin are saying ‘put up or shut up.’  Meanwhile, in Iran, it now seems likely that a Ukrainian jetliner that went down around the same time the IRG was shooting its missile ‘barrage’ in the direction of Iraq was shot down by the Russian-built Iranian air defenses.  Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau basically admitted as much seeing as how 63 of the 179 aboard were his citizens.  What are you going to do it, Mr. Prime Minister?  Most likely, NOTHING.  
  56. 2021 Saturday: Today is Wildcard Weekend in the NFL in our expanded playoff format: (1) Indianapolis Colts, 24 (11-6) @ Buffalo Bills. 27 (14-3) (2) Los Angeles Rams, 30 (11-6) @ Seattle Seahawks, 20 (12-5) and (3) Tampa Bay, 31 (12-5) @ Washington Redskins, 23 (7-10).  Alex Smith did not start at QB for the ‘Skins but Taylor Heinicke did and what a game the kid played.  It was fabulous.  Note- it’s time for the Seahawks to fire Coach Pete Carroll.  He’s a bum.  Also stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.
  57. 2021 Saturday A: BIG TECH bans the new social media app Parler over claims it does not moderate its site for ‘unacceptable content.’  Folks, when BIG TECH crippled Alex Jones and Infowars, everyone should have woken up and taken note.  This is the United States of America, NOT the People’s Republic of China- we have freedom of speech rights here.  Period.  Elsewhere, “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani urges President Trump to declassify ALL records on the ‘Russian collusion scandal’ and on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s ties to the Chi-Coms.  We also want to see the UFO files, too, Mr. President.  Meanwhile, an incoming congresswoman from Illinois finds herself in ‘hot water’ for having made comments tying Democrats to Nazis.  Then, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden begins blasting the GOP by tying them…guess what: Nazis.  It never ends.
  58. 2021 Saturday B: Washington, D.C. police are investigating a suspicious package found near the Capitol today.  Antifa left a bomb, perhaps?  You never know.  Meanwhile, Richard Barnett- the man who participating in storming the Capitol Building this past Wednesday and who first seated himself at Pelosi’s desk and then carried off her podium, turned himself into federal agents today.  Dimwit.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump- facing a second impeachment- confirms he won’t attend the inauguration of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden on January 20.  This will make the 45th president the fourth president- following John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Johnson- not to attend the inauguration of his successor.  Why should he?  It is clear the presidential election was a fraud.  ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden did not beat President Trump by an Electoral College vote of 306-232 nor did he win the votes of 80 million Americans.  Period.  Speaking of President Trump, noted liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Trump did nothing wrong in his speech this past Wednesday.’  Perhaps he will defend him at his second impeachment trial?
  59. 2021 Saturday C: Speaking of the mob violence at the Capitol this past Wednesday, engineered by Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter, the Department of Justice says there are NO charges against President Trump for ‘incitement of violence.’  What we saw on Wednesday was a well-orchestrated false flag operation carried off by Antifa and BLM.  We must give credit where credit is due, and they did a hell of a job of it.  Elsewhere, President Donald Trump hints at the creation of a new social media platform.  Mr. President, you will need to create your own ‘Google,’ too, because there is NO freedom of speech if one does not control the servers upon which the platform exists.  Speaking of Twitter, Rudy Giuliani basically has labeled them a ‘fascist operation.’  In the same vein, Trump ally, Jason Miller, says, ‘if you don’t think they’re coming for you, you’re mistaken.’   Finally, 2020 was a bad year for the news media what with the loss of 30,000 or more jobs in the fake news industry.
  60. 2021 Saturday D: The Centers for Disease Control announce that 59-percent of all COVID-19 cases are caused by asymptomatic spread.   Meanwhile, a study shows coronavirus immunity lasts up to 8 months in 90-percent of patients.
  61. 2021 Saturday E: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 89,516,439 confirmed cases, +734,302, 1,924,004, confirmed deaths, +12,908, and 49,669,429 confirmed recoveries, +307,155.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 22,331,368 confirmed cases, up 281,916 from yesterday’s reporting, 375,039 confirmed deaths, UP 3,574, and 9,827,904 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,393.
  62. 2021 Saturday 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: 2,639,814 confirmed cases, 29,233 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 23,143 confirmed cases, 307 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 273,142 confirmed cases, 3,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nevada: currently, they have 246,309 confirmed cases, 3,450 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 485,434 confirmed cases, 3,645 confirmed deaths, and 412,296 confirmed recoveries.
  63. 2021 Saturday G: Here are the results for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3524 with a jackpot of $10 million on the line: 03, 04, 17, 34, 39, and Mega 20.  Out of 118,277 winning tickets, the highest winners were EIGHT people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $2,687 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #810 with a BIG POT of $470 million up for grabs: 14, 26, 38, 45, 46, and Powerball 13.  Out of 280,550 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $37,117 apiece.
  64. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we encourage everyone to stick around today to discover whatever news arises that continues showing the stooges of Beijing- the Democratic Party- doing whatever it is they’re doing to tip our country into the camp of the Chi-Coms.  We cannot permit them to steal the country from we, the American people…then again, if we cannot beat them, we may have to join them and destroy them from within.  Hail, China!  Join me later today.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Guitar-slinger Richard Thompson went on the road to promote his wonderful album, “Mock Tudor,” which resulted in yet another live album- “Live from Austin, Texas”- an album that hit record store shelves on May 15, 2005.  Joining Mr. Thompson (guitars/vocals) are parts 2 and 3 of his new acoustic ‘power trio’ of sorts: Danny Thompson (bass), and Michael Jerome (drums).  If you have yet to introduce the music of this long-lived guitarist, this is a superb way in which one can do it.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- perhaps even going to the artist’s site- and picking it up.  You will be glad you did, undoubtedly.  Seek it out now.

  55. 2017 Monday:  President Donald J. Trump signs the tax bill, one the left has ginned up many Americans to believe will ONLY benefit the wealthiest of Americans.  They claim he told his friends, ‘you all just got a lot richer,’ but even if this were the case, people with money employ people without money so WTF?  Stop lying about a law that will benefit all Americans.   Meanwhile, a dimwit named Robert Strong of Los Angeles, California, drunk the liberal Kool-Aid, filled a box with horse manure, wrapped it with Christmas paper, slapped a big bow on it, and hand-delivered it to the home of U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.  What a guy.
  56. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump warns that the government shutdown over his demand for funds to construct the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico could extend for a ‘long time.’  We need the money so we can protect our country from illegal alien thugs, Speaker Pelosi.  Do the right thing.   Speaking of the government shutdown, we learn that 800,000 federal employees are either on furlough or are working without wages.  What the Democrats won’t tell you is that when government reopens, they will get their back pay.[ix]
  57. 2019 Wednesday: Well-known RINO Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, Alaska, expresses her concerns over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s coordination with the White House on the upcoming impeachment trial.  Senator- join the Democratic Party and take Susan Collins and Mitt Romney with you.  Please.  Meanwhile, the Intercept reports that 2020 Democratic Party hopeful for the nomination- former Mayor Michael Bloomberg- used prison inmates to make campaign calls on his behalf.  What a POS.   
  58. 2020 Friday: In the early morning hours in Nashville, Tennessee, what appears to be a car bomb explodes in the downtown area.  At least three people suffered injuries and 20 buildings were damaged.  Local authorities are investigating the scene along with agents from both the FBI and the ATF.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Congress sends the Chinese Virus relief bill to the desk of President Donald J.

  60. 2020 Friday B: In the state of Georgia, more than one-quarter of all registered voters have already cast their votes in the run-off elections scheduled for the first week of January 2021.  Meanwhile, supporters of President Donald J. Trump are seeking to obtain a permit with which, they can hold a massive rally in Washington, D.C., on January 06, 2021, the day the electors certify the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.
  61. 2020 Friday C: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announces the U.S. will open a consulate in Western Sahara.  This was part of the deal for normalized relations with the Israelis- recognition of Morocco’s possession of the disputed territory.  Currently, there will be a virtual consulate with a brick-and-mortar facility to follow.  Meanwhile, the secretary blasts reports in the Fake News media that he and his wife, Susan- who recently had a positive COVID-19 test- attender parties before going into quarantine.  Secretary Pompeo said it was a load of hooey.   
  62. 2020 Friday D: A federal judge blocks the execution of the only woman on federal death row, Lisa Montgomery.  Elsewhere, fund-raising statistics for the two Democrats seeking the U.S. Senate seats in the Peach State- Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff- two communists- show that each candidate raised $100 million apiece over the past two months.  Just think if that money was put to better use somewhere else- like St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital instead of giving it to two Marxist candidates.  Wow. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Education opens a probe into ties between the University of Alabama and the lab in Wuhan, China, from whence came the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- WTF? 
  63. 2020 Friday E: As the U.S. housing boom continues, developers have become fearful they may run out of land on which, to build the new communities.  Perhaps if we deported the illegal aliens in the country, we would have more available housing and land for development.  Just saying.  Meanwhile, “Pro-China Joe” and Dr. Jill Biden send Christmas greetings to the American people while the Pope at the Vatican urges every nation with vaccines for the Wuhan Virus Crisis not to forget the poor nations of the world who have no vaccines.  God bless you, Pontiff!   Elsewhere, the Washington Post says Microsoft Cloud customers have been hit hard by the Russian hacks. 
  64. 2020 Friday F: Russia opens a criminal investigation into an ally of Kremlin critic and the man the FSB tried to poison, Alexei Navalny.  Meanwhile, Gordon Chang says there is NO way the Chi-Coms and the U.S. can cooperate in space like the U.S. and Russia does.  We tend to agree.
  65. 2020 Friday G: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 79,579,540 confirmed cases, +875,106, 1,745,861, confirmed deaths, +15,198, and 44,877,810 confirmed recoveries, +554,709.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 18,846,059 confirmed cases, up 212,265 from yesterday’s reporting, 332,283 confirmed deaths, UP 2,792, and 8,280,764 confirmed recoveries, UP 47,857.
  66. 2020 Friday 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: 2,047,919 confirmed cases, 23,944 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,749 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 237,269 confirmed cases, 3,268 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Carolina where they have a moron for a governor: currently, they have 498,005 confirmed cases, 6,420 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 389,678 confirmed cases, 3,171 confirmed deaths, and 354,674 confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Friday I: Stick around for today’s NFL game, Thursday Night Football on Friday afternoon: Minnesota Vikings, 33 (6-9) @ New Orleans Saints, 52 (11-4) Christmas Day 1:30 P.M.  Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1619 with a massive jackpot of $352,000,000 up for grabs: 17, 23, 36, 69, 70, and Mega 19.  Out of 113,259 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $7,525 apiece.

Funding U.S. National Debt is akin to the Chi-Coms waging an ‘opium war’ against us- the more cash we need the more power Beijing gains

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 look forward to presenting the music of Electric Flag sometime within the next 15-20 years.

[ii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We promoted the music of Mountain beginning on Thursday, 13-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  Check them out and enjoy.

[v] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world. 

[vi] We shared the music of the famed Los Angeles, California, psychedelic rock band, Love, beginning on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  We hope you will check them out as they deserve to be heard.

[vii] We look forward to sharing the music of the great James Brown one day with the readership.  Please, remain vigilant for the day we do.

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

[ix] Here is what the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes- when government is shutdown or a pandemic shuts down everything, EVERY government employee furloughed or deemed non-essential, whether school teachers of members of elective offices should not receive paychecks until everything returns to normal.  WTF should school teachers be sitting home, watching daytime TV, eating bonbons, and drinking booze be paid?  They are NOT working.  You want a f**king paycheck, take your worthless asses back to work.

In Arizona, there were 300,000 illegal votes, Nevada, 95,000 fraudulent votes, Michigan, a whopping 500,000 plus illegal votes and in Georgia, another 200,000 illegal votes which are enough to give all these states to President Donald J. Trump. 
  50. 2020 Saturday A: We learn the POS international criminal George Soros, former World War II Nazi war criminal’s Minnesota Freedom Fund, has helped murderers, rapists, thugs, child molesters, arsonists, looters, and other forms of scum to get out jail and back onto the streets. Meanwhile, the forever-corrupt Congresswoman Maxine Waters, D-CA, has once again used campaign funds to finance a family member, this time her daughter.    Speaking of California, many county sheriff’s departments have announced that they will not enforce the harsh ‘stay-at-home orders’ imposed across the state by Democratic Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, a corrupt, hypocritical politician who could be recalled by March 2021.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post reports that U.S. intelligence agencies are NOT providing ‘President-elect Pro China Joe’ Biden with intelligence briefings.  Why would they?  The man is a tool of the Chi-Coms and did not win the 2020 Presidential Election fairly.   Speaking of Beijing Biden, 222 GOP elected politicians will NOT call him, ‘president-elect.’
  51. 2020 Saturday B: The United Kingdom and the European Union are struggling to keep Brexit on course. In Somalia, the U.S. is on schedule to withdraw all forces and to redeploy them elsewhere.  Meanwhile, Delta Airlines is going to monitor its passengers’ information when it comes to COVID-19, aka the Chi-Vi, and provide it to government authorities.  Good reason NOT to fly Delta.
  52. 2020 Saturday C: Sidney Powell to Newsmax TV- there is plenty of time for President Trump to overturn the results of the fraudulent November 03, 2020, Presidential Election. Meanwhile, the U.S. imposes visa restrictions on more Chi-Com citizens which is good because their citizens entering the U.S. come her to spy for Beijing.  Elsewhere, 11 California counties around the Bay Area plan to implement Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s lockdown orders tonight and not later in the month.  Other counties, however, have no plan to follow his Nazi-like ‘laws’ (Please see 2020 Saturday A).  Finally, we learn that if Beijing Joe Biden somehow does become the nation’s next president, his inaugural ceremony and address will- in the style of Big Brother- be VIRTUAL.   
  53. 2020 Saturday D: 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 hypocritical snowflake Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 66,442,818 confirmed cases, +756,646, 1,527,209, confirmed deaths, +12,660, and 42,578,816 confirmed recoveries, +419,236.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 14,698,987 confirmed cases, UP 1235,058 from yesterday’s reporting, 284,339 confirmed deaths, UP 2,541, and 6,929,016 confirmed recoveries, UP 50,354.
  54. 2020 Saturday E: 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: 1,318,139 confirmed cases, 19,791 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 18,738 confirmed cases, 261 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 182,758 confirmed cases, 3,062 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Oregon currently, they have 81,441 confirmed cases, 1,004 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- we guess it is what it is.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 343,826 confirmed cases, 2,909 confirmed deaths, and 327,749 confirmed recoveries.
  55. 2020 Saturday F: In Georgia, President Donald J. Trump holds a massive rally for the two Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, both fighting against far-left losers seeking to topple the country and put it onto the path of socialism. The crowd is ecstatic and wants truth instead of lies and demands their state’s governor and secretary of state do what the Constitution and the people of Georgia demand: investigate the fraudulent election and send criminals to prison.
  56. 2020 Saturday G: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for Super Lotto Draw #3514 with a jackpot of $13 million up for grabs: 01, 13, 30, 35, 40, and Mega 02.  Out of 87,290 winning tickets, 10 people had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,631 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #800 with a jackpot of $243 million on the line: 03, 04, 06, 48, 53, and Power 10.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson joined forces with Danny Thompson (the two are unrelated) to put out a concept album of sorts regarding the effects of industry upon England.  Aptly titled, “Industry,” the album came out on February 15, 1997, and featured a varied group of accompanying musicians.  Some names you will recognize while others, you may not.  There are many choice tidbits on this effort which is why we encourage everyone to visit whatever site it is you do for the best in music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, even the record store (remember those?) as you will be glad you did.  Seek it out- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

319. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2021

1942 Sunday: On the Eastern Front, the weather is bad along the front where Stalingrad lies. The sounds of buildup across the river now are unmistakable as the Red Army lines up 3,500 big guns north and south of the city where the Rumanian 3rd and 4th Armies defend the flanks. When the Russians strike, the units north of the city will be the first to feel the explosive power the Reds have brought to bear.

  61. 2016 Tuesday: All the delays against the Dakota Access Pipeline over climate change issues have cost the company $100 million in lost revenue already.  Add to that worldwide protests demanding it not be constructed keep the project tied up in court.  Who the f**k around the world is upset over U.S. domestic oil production?  Uh, the Russians, OPEC, and other oil producing nations, that’s who.

Coincidence?
  64. 2019 Friday: Marie Yovanovitch- former ambassador to the Ukraine- testified before Congressman Adam Schiff’s House Intel Committee’s ‘impeachment inquiry.’  She like George Kent and William Taylor who testified on Wednesday could not name a single impeachable offense committed by President Donald J.

  67. 2020 Sunday B: We learn today that a charity to defeat cancer begun by “Pro-China Joe” and Dr. Jill Biden back in 2017 raked in millions of dollars but extraordinarily little made its way into the coffers of cancer researchers.  The bogus ‘charity’ received $4,809,619 in contributions, paid out $3,070,301 on salaries, $2,996,404 in functional expenses, and a salary of $429,850 per year to ‘charity’ President Gregory Simon.  Wow.  How do WE set up a similar ‘charity?’  This is worse than the Clinton Foundation.             
  68. 2020 Sunday C: SpaceX launches its first full-crew capsule into space late this afternoon to rendezvous with the International Space station in 27 hours.  Three American and one Japanese astronaut will spend the next six months there.  All precautions were taken to prevent the Chinese Virus from making it up into space.   Speaking of the Chi-Vi, here are the statistics:
  69. 2020 Sunday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -so-called Pelosi Pox the aka ‘Go to Chinatown and hug a Chinaman’ (a moronic act of virtue-signaling) disease:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 54,296,615 confirmed cases, +508,249, 1,315,881, confirmed deaths, +7,156, and 34,867,243 confirmed recoveries, +207,063.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 11,116,640 confirmed cases, up 154,950 from yesterday’s reporting, 249,730 confirmed deaths, UP 897, and 5,946,496 confirmed recoveries, UP 20,495.  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: 1,028,490 confirmed cases, 18,259 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,619 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, 12,083 confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 133,612 confirmed cases, 2,638 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Minnesota- currently, they have 223,637 confirmed cases, 2,961 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries- why don’t you report the statistics?  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 323,741 confirmed cases, 2,732 confirmed deaths, and 313,380 confirmed recoveries.  Time to hold the Chi-Coms accountable for their perfidy in this matter, for sending the Xi Jinping bat flu around the globe.   Elsewhere, Oregon Governor Kate Brown threatens to send Oregonians to prison if they have more than six guests for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  F**k her.
  70. 2020 Sunday E: An event that occurred this past Friday was reported today: New York Times columnist David Brooks- in scathing comments about the corrupt Democratic Party said that ‘Democrats need to get over the idea that they are the majority party of the future.’  We concur.  Everyone is going to begin working AGAINST the Democrats from within.  Several of our authors are going to register as Democrats so they can begin working up from the lower echelons.  Start with the school boards, the city council seats, county supervisorial seats, as well as insinuating people into education who are registered Democrats but who are conservative in outlook.  Folks, VIVA L’ RESISTANCE!  Fight against “Chi-Com Joe” Biden and his masters in Beijing.  In order to beat these Democratic scumbags, we must employ their tactics against them, only worse, a la what the Columbians did to defeat and destroy Pablo Escobar.
  71. 2021 Monday: Stay tuned for Monday Night Football and Monday Night Powerball.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

It’s the 1980s and times were-a-changing for bands that blossomed in the 1960s.  Fairport Convention released their next album, “Expletive Delighted!” on August 12, 1986, an album composed of ALL instrumental tracks even though the cover of the musical endeavor boasts, “LYRIC SHEET ENCLOSED,” which would appear to be an inside joke for the talented by wily band.  The band included virtuoso Maartin Allcock (guitars, mandolins, and the bouzouki), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars), Dave Mattacks (keyboards, drums, and percussion), and two guests- Richard Thompson (electric guitars) and Jerry Donahue (guitars).  If you enjoy instrumentals highlighting the talents of exceptional musicians, this is the album that you should seek out and add to your growing collection.  You will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, MONDAY NOVEMBER 15, 2021, BLOG POST #4,250

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

Sunday, November 15, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:  

IF the GOP was doing to the Dems what the Dems are doing to the GOP, Antifa and Black Lives Matter Brown Shirts would lock election officials inside, pour gasoline all over the exits, and then set them alight

Sunday, November 15, 2020, Today in History:


Monday, November 15, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[iv] And they claim that Republicans NEVER do anything for the environment.

[v] Whether we like it or not, Hong Kong is part of the People’s Republic of China and within their jurisdiction.

[vi] We offered the music of this famed West Coast band- the Grass Roots- beginning on Thursday, 06-February-2014 through Saturday, 22-February-2014.  We hope you will seek their music out by visiting whatever site you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.

[vii] When the phony skank sat before the U.S. Senate’s Judiciary Committee, she acted like a timid little girl, wailing, and moaning about a young Brett Kavanaugh did to her.  Although she could not name dates, places, or most of the people present and even though her closest friend said she knew nothing about what Dr. Ford was saying, Dr. Ford still tried to destroy now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s chances of making the court all because this is what Democrats do.  What a shame.  Same goes for former Ambassador Yovanovitch, presidents are in charge of U.S. foreign policy and no one else. They appoint many ambassadors as well as special ones to represent them in a variety of circumstances.  A president can remove or recall an ambassador at any time as ambassadors are charged with carrying out the president’s foreign policies and not creating their own.  It is interesting to note that when Barack Obama won the 2008 Presidential Election, he immediately made it known that upon assuming office all Bush-appointed ambassadors were out of their jobs.  It is how and as it should be,.

[viii] You can begin reading our coverage on the unfair actions the Democrats used against Kavanaugh beginning with Chef Tiresias’ post of Wednesday, July 11, 2018. 

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, LET’S GIVE JOE A CHANCE- CHEF ROLLIE!
