  21. 1941 Tuesday: Architects presented the plans for the Pentagon to the House Subcommittee of Appropriations.  On the Eastern Front, Axis forces continue steamrolling across the Soviet Union.  The problems the Axis troops are facing is that as they head east, Russia opens up like a great funnel which dilutes the strength of the Axis forces.  That’s bad enough but stories of the atrocities the Nazis are committing behind the lines against civilians- notably communist party members and Jews- is stiffening the backbones of the Red Army soldiers.  Even without help in sight, they trade their lives to buy time for their comrades farther east to prepare defenses.   Still, Operation Barbarossa rolls forward.
  22. 1942 Wednesday: The Nazis began transporting Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto to the Treblinka Death Camp.  Meanwhile, back along the Atlantic Seaboard in the United States, gasoline-rationing involving the use of coupons commenced.  Elsewhere, in the Pacific Theater, the Japanese are continuing their advance across New Guinea placing Australia in danger.

Patton captured Palermo, Sicily, during World War II.  At least 50,000 Italian troops- about the size of a division- are trapped in the western portion of the island and without relief will have to lay down their arms and become prisoners of war.  Not long ago, Il Duce Benito Mussolini guaranteed his ally, Adolf Hitler, that the Fascists would continue the fight.
  24. 1944 Saturday: The Soviet military authorities set up the Polish National Liberation Committee. In essence, they are telling the Free Polish government broadcasting orders to the Polish people from London, ‘you aren’t in charge here.’  Soviet forces capture the strategic city of Chelm and redouble their efforts at encircling Lublin, Poland.  Meanwhile, in London, Rick Davies, future keyboardist, and vocalist with the rock group, Supertramp[i], is born in Swindon, England.
  25. 1945 Sunday: As Allied bombers continue blasting Japan, the Japanese government still is not ready to throw in the towel.  Tokyo still thinks it can negotiate a peace and tells the Allies; we are ‘open to peace feelers but not to outright surrender.’  The Imperial Japanese are determined to defend their home islands to the bitter end no matter the cost.
  26. 1946 Monday: The militant Zionist group Irgun blew up a wing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, killing 91 people and wounding many more.

  37. 1986 Tuesday: The U.S. House of Representatives impeaches Federal Judge Harry E. Clairborne on grounds of income tax evasion.
  38. 1987 Wednesday: To protect them from possible Iranian assault, the United States Navy commenced escorting re-flagged Kuwaiti oil tankers up and down the Persian Gulf.  Because the Iraqis were kicking Iranian butt in the Iran-Iraq War, the Iranians wanted to widen the war to which, the United States under President Ronald Reagan told them, “NO.”
  39. 1991 Thursday: Police in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, arrested sick f**k Jeffrey Dahmer, who later confessed to murdering 17 men and boys.  Dahmer ended up dying in prison after another inmate beat him to death in general population.

  44. 1999 Thursday: In Rome, N.Y., the 30th anniversary music festival celebrating the original Woodstock Music and Arts Festival of 1969 begins.  None of the bands there could ever approximate the original performers and add to that the fact the concert temperatures were over 100 degrees plus, people became violent and battled with one another bringing the mess to an end on the 25th.  Some said the fiasco was ‘the day the music died,’ a comment attributed to San Francisco Examiner journalist Jane Ganahi.  Yes, we think it did die there what with a mishmash of various groups.   The fact that people fought with each other, there were sexual assaults, rapes, arson, and looting says that this event was NOT about ‘peace and love.’  Nope.  Can’t rekindle the magic.
  45. 2000 Saturday: Astronomers at the University of Arizona announced they had a 17th moon orbiting Jupiter.
  46. 2003 Tuesday: Saddam Hussein’s two miserable sons Odai and Qusai died during a gunfight with U.S. forces in northern Iraq.  Elsewhere, a fire broke out near the top of the Eiffel Tower.  French authorities evacuated approximately 4,000 people sans any reported injuries.
  47. 2004 Thursday: The September 11 commission’s final report hit the news on this date.  The 575-page report concluded that hijackers exploited “deep institutional failings within our government.”  The commission released it to the White House a day before.  This report has led many 9-11 Truthers to blame George W. Bush for allowing the jihadist scum to attack the United States so the President could launch a war with Iraq.  This is a bunch of felonious bull crap as EVERYONE—we repeat—EVERYONE believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
  48. 2005 Friday: A labor agreement ended an NHL lockout that canceled the previous hockey season. 
  49. 2008 Tuesday: Tropical Storm Dolly spun into a hurricane as it headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border.  Meanwhile, European Union ministers agreed to toughen sanctions against murderous thug-dictator President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to pressure him to share power with the opposition.  Finally, actress Estelle Getty died in Los Angeles, California, at age 84.

  51. 2011 Friday: The International Monetary Fund approves a new three-year loan deal for Haiti, $60 million and cancels its $268 million debt.  Elsewhere, Anders Breivik, a self-described “militant nationalist,” massacred 69 people at a Norwegian island youth retreat after detonating a bomb in nearby Oslo that killed eight others in the nation’s worst violence since World War II.  Breivik was angry over the massive importation of Muslims into his homeland.
  52. 2012 Sunday:  India elects Pranab Mukherjee as its new President.
  53. 2013 Monday: Scientific studies reveal that dolphins have unique names for one another in much the same way as do human beings.  Elsewhere, frenzied crowds of Roman Catholics in Rio de Janeiro mobbed the car carrying Pope Francis as he returned to his home continent for the first time as pontiff, embarking on a seven-day visit.  Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, gave birth to a son, Prince George, who became third in line to the British throne after Prince Charles and Prince William.

  57. 2017 Saturday: The United States Navy and President Donald J. Trump christened the newest aircraft carrier to the fleet, the USS Gerald R. Ford, on this date.    Meanwhile, in San Antonio, Texas, one of the worst incidents of tragedy in human trafficking occurs as 10 illegal aliens die in the back of an overheated semi-truck trailer.   
  58. 2018 Sunday: In response to a hateful speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet in which, he warns the s-hole nation of “CONSEQUENCES.”  The Iranians would be wise to listen to the 45th president as he is not- we repeat NOT- the 44th president who was Pro-Iranian to the bone.   Meanwhile, in anti-gun Toronto, Canada, a shooter kills 2 and wounds 13 before being shot dead by law enforcement.
  59. 2019 Monday: The latest Marvel Comics superhero film, “Avengers: Endgame,” surpasses “Avatar” as the world’s highest-grossing film pulling in $2.9 billion.  People love the comic book movies it says a lot about the public paying big bucks to watch this schlock.   Meanwhile, Pakistani President Imran Khan meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House on a state visit.   Elsewhere, in northwestern Syria at Maarat al-Numan, Russian warplanes in support of Syrian government forces kill at least 31 civilians.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump says that the ‘U.S. could win the war in Afghanistan in one week.’  “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.  If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.”  (Mr. President, this is why God gave the United States the neutron bomb- use them!).
  60. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. State Department orders the closure- by this Friday- of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China’s consulate in Houston, Texas.  The Chinese within the facility immediately start a bonfire with which to eliminate all sensitive documents but everyone knows the Houston consulate (and most of the others) are hotbeds for hostile spying on everything in the area: U.S. air force and other military bases, the U.S. space program, and bio research, especially into the Chinese-manufactured Bat Flu pandemic sweeping the planet.  Meanwhile reports inform the world that every day PRC warplanes are buzzing Taiwan, a free nation the communists are determined to reclaim.  STAND STRONG TAIWAN!  WE ADVOCATE FOR A RETURN OF THE TWO-CHINA POLICY BY WHICH, TAIWAN BECOMES A FREE AND INDEPENDENT NATION AS THEY WERE BEFORE THE UNITED NATIONS THREW THEM UNDER THE BUS IN FAVOR OF THE PRC- CHI-COM MONEY BOUGHT THEM TAIWAN’S SEAT IN THE U.N. AND ON THE U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL.      
  61. 2020 Wednesday A: President Donald J. Trump- with Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, and numerous others- announces to the nation Operation Legend, a partnership between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to reclaim the streets from violent left-wing (and we believe communist China-funded) mobs that are murdering innocent civilians and harming countless others in numerous cities around the country.   These are standard, anti-crime-fighting activities the federal government has been carrying out for decades and all left-wing mayors and governors have been put on notice.
  62. 2020 Wednesday B: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,008,046 confirmed cases, UP by 233,159 cases, 617,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,303 deaths, and 8,511,330 confirmed recoveries, UP by 171,288 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,019,492 confirmed cases, UP by 123,689 new cases, 145,053 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,021 new deaths, and 1,185,757 confirmed recoveries, UP by 55,552 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).   
  63. 2020 Wednesday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 413,576 confirmed cases, 7,883 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,418 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,084 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 48,575 confirmed cases, 1,465 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Florida: 379,619 confirmed number of cases, 5,459 confirmed number of deaths, and like Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Ron DeSantis?  Acting like a Blue State governor?    
  64. 2020 Wednesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,005.84, UP 165.44 points (0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,706.13, UP 25.76 points (0.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,276.02, UP 18.72 points (0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,868.80 per troy oz., +3.70 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $23.20 per troy ounce, +0.061 (+0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $964.00 per troy oz, +6.60 (0.69%) while the price of COPPER is $2.92 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.15%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.19%).
  65. 2021 Thursday:  Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with each of us.  We all know the ‘truth is out there’ and when it comes to ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden, the truth swirls around us like a Chi-Com shit storm.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next album, “The Jethro Tull Christmas Album,” on September 30, 2003, and the album featured new material as well as traditional Christmas favorites.  The band featured a quintet of Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jonathan Noyce (bass- Gary Moore) Doane Perry (drums and percussion), and Andy Giddings (keyboards).  It’s always glorious to see a band that no matter how music changes decade by decade manages to keep up and to continue demonstrating that it still can set the trends.  Sadly, this would be it for new music for about 20 years.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

  66. 2020 Wednesday A: Meanwhile, one of President Trump’s financial advisors, Peter Navarro, authored an op-ed in USA Today in which, he criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci as not being right on anything related to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The White House said they knew nothing of the editorial.  Elsewhere in New York City, NYPD officers discovered the body of Bangladeshi tech entrepreneur Fahim Saleh, 33-years-old dismembered in his luxury apartment.  His head and limbs were sorted into plastic bags for disposal with an electric saw nearby.  Finally, President Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr declare war on MS-13.  ‘Bout time!
  67. 2020 Wednesday B: The International Union of Police Associations endorses President Donald J. Trump for re-election in November 2020.  Law and order, baby!
  68. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Flu Virus statistics for today, first for the planet: 13,382,020 confirmed cases, UP 181,470 new cases, 580,038 confirmed deaths, UP 4,860 new deaths, and 7,445,299 confirmed recoveries, UP 115,145 new recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States of America: 3,483,905 confirmed cases, 138,358 confirmed deaths, and 1,026,816 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs our famed chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the numbers for the Golden State first: 347,634 confirmed cases, 7,227 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries, because Gov. Gavin Newsom is a POS hack politician.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,264 confirmed cases, 22 confirmed deaths, and 921 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor David Ige.  Finally, here are the stats for the communist overrun Ever-Red (Evergreen) State: 42,304 confirmed cases, 1,430 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm for Blue States, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- shame on you, Governor Jay Inslee.  For fun, let’s look at the Empire State, here are their stats: 404,006 confirmed cases, 32,350 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In New York, two men bear blame for all the deaths and must lose their qualified immunity: Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill “Never Met a Communist I didn’t like” Di Blasio.  Both men should be in prison for their ineptitude in handling this traumatic disease from CHINA.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

ENDNOTES:


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

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

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

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

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

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

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

[ix] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five and a homo twit like Adam Levine.  What a loser, he looks like the flipping illustrated man.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next ‘best of’ package on June 30, 1998, just in time for the ongoing West Coat heat wave, “Through the Years.”  This effort contains 13 essential cuts, most of them from albums but also some as singles or from EPs.  If you have yet to introduce the music of this seminal British rock band to your ears, well, this is a glorious way in which one can right that incredibly lethargic wrong.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Dire Straits within the next decade.

[iii] Not sure when or if we will ever do the Sex Pistols’ music but who knows?  If we are still here in 30-40 years, we very well could.  Stay tuned for future developments.

[iv] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included the Jeff Beck Group, 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.

[v] We promoted the music of this venerable British guitarist 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.

  64. 2020 Thursday C: On the final day of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term, the high court handed down two decisions, both regarding President Donald J. Trump.  First, in Trump v. Vance (Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.  
  65. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look.  WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Jethro Tull is not what one might think according to its title: “Roots to Branches,” (September 12, 1995.  One might think that the influences that led to Jethro Tull’s formation, the band itself, and then the various offshoots such as Blodwyn Pig, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Martin Barre would be here but oh, no- this is a NEW studio effort, the 19th to be precise.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Steve Bailey and Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention), Andy Giddings (keyboards), and Doane Perry (drums and percussion),  As usual, the band delivers a fine performance which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your listening pleasure every day.

  62.   2019 Sunday: On this date, President Donald J. Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un along the DMZ separating the two Koreas from one another.  President Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to walk across the dividing line onto North Korean soil and then the two crossed into South Korea where they held an impromptu meeting for nearly three hours.  Jealous Democrats and fake news promoters called the whole thing a ‘photo op’ when it might truly lead to peace and destroy Democratic Party 2020 hopes.   Meanwhile, in Khartoum, the capital of the Sudan, protests against continued military rule leads to violence what with seven killed and 181 injured.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: The Beijing Bat Flu continues trashing the world as the escapee from the Wuhan Institute of Virology continues taking names and calling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 10,363,165 confirmed cases, an increase of 168,367 cases, 507,188 confirmed deaths, an increase of 4,241 deaths, and 5,284,524 confirmed recoveries, an increase of 115,103.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 2,668,647 confirmed cases- +138,383, 128,581 confirmed deaths, +574, and 821,931 confirmed recoveries, +12,650. 
  64. 2020 Tuesday A: In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington state- here are the stats, Golden State first: 222,917 confirmed cases, 5,980 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 900 confirmed cases, 18 confirmed deaths, and 722 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 32,253 confirmed cases, 1,320 confirmed deaths, and like other mostly BLUE locales, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  It is interesting to note that the United States is NOW the main country with the Kung Flu, which we believe is by design.  The communist Chinese via colluding with the Democratic Party have made sure we have the most numbers.  George Floyd died for nothing.  NOTHING.  The protests and now the violent mobs spreading COVID-19 far and wide are doing this by design, all to thwart President Donald J. Trump.
  65. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s stock market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,812.88, UP 217.08 points 0.85%), NASDAQ: 10,058.76, UP 184.61 points (1.87%), and the S&P 500: 3,100.29, UP 47.05 points (1.54%).
  66. 2021 Wednesday:  Friends, please stick around but note, we may be toning things down a bit what with increased pressure from the outside.  Joe Biden is GREAT, communist China WONDERFUL, illegal aliens DELIGHTFUL.  Nancy Pelosi is a GENIUS, AOC a MENSA graduate, and BIG GOVERNMENT preferable to freedom and liberty.  Yes, we are using Newspeak Dictionary 2021.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next ‘best of’ package on January 11, 1993, just in time for the wintertime blues, “Nightcap- the Unreleased Masters 1973-1991.”  This effort contains amazing music on two big discs most of them from albums but also some as singles or from EPs.  If you have yet to introduce the music of this seminal British rock band to your ears, well, this is a glorious way in which one can right that incredibly lethargic wrong.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering because it was so damned amazing.

[ii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[iii] Democrats in 2020 now want to lower the voting age to 16-year-olds as well as to felons, illegal aliens, and others who should not be able to vote.  If anything, voting age should be raised to 35 because most Americans do not begin undergoing the maturation process as they did 50 or more years ago.  What we are saying is that young people are little more than a bunch of sissies who should never be able to vote.  Let us restore it as the Constitution presented it that people of property should be the only ones able to vote.  You must have a stake in the country to do what’s right for her.

[iv] It’s no wonder as to WHY Jimmy Carter served but one term as president.  The guy was a whoosie.

Trump colluded with the Russkies, they might actually have gotten rid of this crap but they failed like they always do.

  60. 2019 Thursday: The John Roberts U.S. Supreme Court does it again: it rules in a 6-3 ruling that the U.S. 2020 Census cannot contain a citizenship question.  WTF?  The court also rules that partisan gerrymandering is A-Okay in that the party in power can rejigger the boundary lines of congressional districts.  No wonder the Dems in California are stealing elections.  Again, WTF?   Elsewhere, down in Miami, Florida, the Democrats hold their presidential primary debate.  As usual, it’s a freak show of giving away everything to noncitizens and proclamations that President Donald J. Trump is ‘EVIL.’
  61. 2020 Saturday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 9,891,728 confirmed cases, 496,075 confirmed deaths, and 5,004,567 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 2,556,465 confirmed cases, 127,452 confirmed deaths, and 783,235 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 206,433 confirmed cases, 5,872 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 866 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 705 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 31,351 confirmed cases, 1,310 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Sunday: Today is Day #158 of the Biden regime nightmare.  The question is, how long will the American people chafe under this usurper regime?  Especially one owned by the Chi-Coms and the Russians?  Folks, we hope to see the restoration of the Trump presidency before year’s end and the traitors rounded up and sent to prison where they belong.  You know what the Fake News says- we’ve never had a presidential election overturned in the history of the county but then, we have never had an election stolen as blatantly as was the 2020 Presidential Election.  Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next album, “Catfish Rising,” on September 10, 1991, and continued to demonstrate that the group had learned from the excessive mistakes of the 1980s.  The band booted electronics and synthesizers in favor of a harder rock sound because folks, the world was in dire need of hard rock.  The band featured a quintet of featured  Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention) Doane Perry (drums and percussion), and Andy Giddings (keyboards).  It’s always glorious to see a band on the comeback and on a comeback was Jethro Tull.  Many bands were falling by the sidelines as other forms like Grunge came to predominate but the ‘Tull’ was not yet prepared to call it a day.  Thank God.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

  55. 2014 Wednesday:  Facebook reports that over 90% of its tech employees are Asian or white, while women make up only 15% of tech employees and 31% of all employees; COO Cheryl Sandberg notes that more women are also needed in leadership roles at the company—something they are striving to do.  Elsewhere, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki of Iraq calls for ‘national unity’ seeing as how the ISIS trash have overrun the town of Yathrib, 54 scant miles north of Baghdad.  (Note- this is what happens when a POS president like Barack Hussein Obama yanks the U.S. out of Iraq and then has to send America’s war-fighters back in to stabilize the mess he inflicted on himself and on the Iraqis).
  56. 2015 Thursday: For the second time in three years, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds Obamacare in a 6-3 decision, outraging most Americans but causing the Obama Administration to dance the jig.  This is not right and yet, no one—including the Republican Party—will fight against it.  What do the Obamaists have on Chief Justice John Roberts? 
  57. 2016 Saturday: After the new government of Taiwan refuses to accept the One-China Policy and bow down to the commies in Beijing, the Chi-Coms sever communications with the brave island.  They must bow down and kiss the ground the Chinese Communist Party tells them to kiss.  F**k them.  IF Donald Trump wins in November, he will defend Taiwan.  If the Democrats win, it’s ‘adios amigos.’

  60. 2019 Tuesday: San Francisco, California, a city where garbage, human feces, and toxic waste lines many of the streets, the city’s leadership steps up and does something extremely important: it bans E-cigarettes.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the White House appoints Stephanie Grisham press secretary and communications director.  Elsewhere, on the other side of the world in the Egyptian city of Arish, ISIS thugs descend on a checkpoint and in the resulting melee, seven Egyptian law enforcement officers and a civilian are killed while at least four and possibly five Islamists are killed.
  61. 2020 Thursday: Inexorably, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu continues marching around the world.  In the United States, Democrats gleefully recite all the polls showing “Pro-China Joe” Biden with an insurmountable 14-point lead, in many battleground states, as well as across the nation.  It’s all over, folks, according to the leftists, “NO point going to the polls.”  My, my, my, I guess we shall see.  Here are the global stats for the COVID Crisis (thank you, communist China): 9,494,571 confirmed cases, 484,155 confirmed deaths, and 4,782,910 confirmed recoveries. 
  62. 2020 Thursday A: In the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,463,563 confirmed cases, 126,185 confirmed deaths, and 763,814 confirmed recoveries.  You know the drill: in the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, Golden State first: 195,571 confirmed cases, 5,733 confirmed deaths, but alas, NO mention of confirmed recoveries- is Gov. Gavin Newsom colluding with his Beijing bosses?  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 835 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 686 confirmed recoveries.  In the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 30,318 confirmed cases, 1,300 confirmed deaths, but like other BLUE STATES, no mention of confirmed recoveries.  For interest’s sake, here are the stats for the Empire State where dimwit Governor Andrew “The Moron” Cuomo, a man ‘who’s single and ready to mingle’ according to his mentally challenged younger brother, CNN anchor and victim of Roid Rage, Chris, here are the stats: 390,415 confirmed cases, 24,800 confirmed deaths, and golly gee whiz, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us not forget, too, that Gov. Cuomo is responsible for most of the deaths in his state by sending coronavirus infected patients into rest homes! 
  63. 2020 Thursday B: Here are today’s stock market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,745.60, UP 299.66 points (1.18%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 10,017.00, UP 107.84 points (1.09%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,083.76, UP 33.43 points (1.10%).
  64. 2021 Friday: Today marks Day #156 of the illegal Joe Biden regime.  We tick off the minutes every day until we can see the return of the legitimate President Donald J. Trump to his rightful position in the White House.  This is WHY the fake news media, the criminals in the Democratic-Socialist Party (and among the RINO wing of the GOP), and the street thugs in Antifa and Black Lives Matter continue pursuing the freedom fighters of the nation by vilifying and ridiculing them.  Ridicule all you want.  The time is coming and it’s coming soon.  Stick around and discover the truth along with all of us.  You will be glad you did (including the traitorous scum trying to topple the country and sell it out to the Chi-Coms).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next studio album by Jethro Tull- “Rock Island”- came out on August 21, 1989.  The band had foregone its earlier acoustic sounds for a more hard-rock one with which to remain current and this album actually did very well, going gold in the UK and close to it in Germany.  The band now featured a quartet of Ian Anderson (guitars, vocals, keyboards, and flutes), Martin Barr (guitars, keyboards), Dave Pegg (bass, backing vocals, and mandolins), and Doane Perry (drums and percussion).  This is a superb album compared to some a decade earlier and we hope that everyone is going to seek it out wherever they shop for the best in music as it will make a glorious addition to your growing library of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music choices.
