  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.

  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971 and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on October 22, 2021.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.

  67. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump fires his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson via a Tweet.   From the very beginning, Secretary Tillerson has been an impediment to the Trump agenda.   Tillerson fell for the bull crap the left spread about the events of Charlottesville and what exactly President Trump said regarding that mess. 
  68. 2019 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort receives and additional 43 months in jail on top of his 47 months for tax evasion and other Deep State-instigated and accused crimes.  Time for the president to pardon the guy.  Meanwhile, President Trump establishes the home of civil rights activists Medgar and Mylie Evers as a national monument in their hometown of Jackson, Mississippi.  Finally, POS California Governor Gavin Newsom- facing recall the following year- declares an indefinite moratorium on the death penalty claiming it discriminates against ‘marginalized communities.’
  69. 2020 Friday: Democrats and the Trump administration continue trying to hammer out a deal that will bring real relief to the American people combatting the Chinese-caused Wuhan Virus, aka COVID-19, which is sweeping the world.  The Democrats continue trying to expand the size of government and to stick in things like additional funding for abortion and other crazy things and the Trump administration and the GOP continue smacking them back and knocking them down.  What is up with the Democrats?  No one knows but they are a bunch of sick f**ks.  Meanwhile, President Trump addresses reporters at the White House and some of the assembled reporters seem eager to know if the president himself might be infected.  Horrible people.  Finally, the State Department ordered the Chinese ambassador to the United States to shut the hell up about trying to connect the U.S. Army to the outbreak of coronavirus that seemingly spilled out of that nation’s ONLY biowarfare lab.  The moratorium on air flights from Europe to the U.S. begins tonight at midnight.
  70. 2021 Saturday: DAY 53 of the BIDEN REGIME…these fools think they are going to confiscate our firearms.  They can try.  The DCCC is launching an ad blitz on television so the Biden administration can take a ‘victory lap’ as though somehow, THEY are the ones who created the vaccines and distributed them to the public.  In fact, they created a commercial showing every living ex-president and former first lady- with the exception of the Trumps!- going on about how miraculous it was we produced several COVID-19 vaccines.  Wow.  Talk about envy, jealousy, and hatred (and do you know what?  It won’t surprise us to see Jeb Bush throw his hat into the ring in 2023.  We agree with what the Reverend Jesse Jackson said several years back: ‘stay out’ d-bushes!’  Amen.).   Note- Joe Biden held a Democrats-only celebration of the ‘Chi-Vi Relief Bill’ in the White House Rose Garden yesterday which pissed off all the Republicans.
  71. 2021 Saturday A: The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service announce that the Biden COVID-19 relief checks are getting underway, perhaps as early as this weekend.  We recall Joe saying before he became president that everyone was going to get $2,000 checks and not $1,400 checks.  Then, they combined the Joe’s payments with President Trump’s payments which means we already got the $600 and now the $1,400 is on the way.  What a scam.  This is taxpayer money, so we are getting our own money back PLUS we’ll have to pay taxes on the money back to the government.  This is the Democratic Party’s infamous money-go-round.  Now, they’re talking about a $4 trillion infrastructure bill- who’s going to do the majority of the work?  Chi-Coms like they do the California High-Speed Rail boondoggle.  All a scam…
  72. 2021 Saturday B: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says, ‘the Dems are still seeking to take control of U.S. Elections.’  We know this, Mitch.  The question is this: HOW will they circumvent the U.S. Constitution and when H.R. 1 arrives at the U.S. Supreme Court under challenge, what will Chief Justice John Roberts do?  Meanwhile, Republican senators continue badgering their Democrat counterparts and the Biden administration as to when they are going to remove the fencing and razor wire surrounding the U.S. Capitol and White House and when the troops are going to go home?  That phony POS General Russell Honoré says the Capitol’s defense requires 2,500 troops at all times around it; yet only 500 have volunteered to remain?  We guess the ones wanting to return home must be the evil Trumpsters the general seeks to excise like cancer from the U.S. military.  He should remember this: there are more of us than there are of YOU,  general.
  73. 2021 Saturday C: Part of General Honoré’s plan is to remove guns from the American people.  The Democrat sponsored bill seeks to ban ALL military-style assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.  Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, claims the American people who already own such guns and accessories will be able to keep them, but we know that’s all bulls**t.  If they get this through without pushback, those ‘rights’ will vanish, too.  They also want background checks which they always demand but everyone who gets firearms- unless they’re thugs- undergoes background checks.  We prefer ‘somebody stole our guns.’  F**k anyone seeking to take away our 2nd amendment rights.
  74.  2021 Saturday D: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is backing a new process in his home state that would change how vacancies would be filled within the state if an opening arises.  It would strip the governor- who in this case happens to be Democrat Andy Beshear- of the ability to put a politician of his choice into a vacancy should one arise and permit the heavily GOP-controlled legislature in the driver’s seat.  We like this and we hope the bill becomes law.  The only reason Beshear won the seat back in 2018 is that everyone despised the Republican who held the seat- Matt Bevin- at the time.  
  75. 2021 Saturday E: The FCC designates FIVE Chi-Com tech companies as inimical to U.S. national security interests: Huawei, ZTE, Hytera Communications, Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology and Dahua Technology.  Each of these companies serves the Ministry of State Security in Beijing, monitoring the globe on behalf of the Chi-Com leadership.  Not good.  In other U.S. national security news, the southern border is still under assault by a tidal wave of illegal aliens from Central America as well as from across the world.  In all of 2019, the Trump administration had ONLY 2,600 illegal alien minors in custody while the Biden administration in just 53 days has 3,200 illegal aliens brats locked up in over-filled containers doing nothing.  Where are all the Democrats screaming and hollering about their mistreatment?  Where are the fake news reporters?  Why has the Biden administration forbidden cameras in the facilities?  We say load them onto buses and deport them NOW.   Even the Mexican president is blasting Joe Biden.  “Trump did a far better job dealing with illegal immigration” or words to that effect.
  76. 2021 Saturday F: The U.S. Department of Justice plans on filing more than 400 cases against the ‘insurrectionists’ that stormed the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.  We suspect the Antifa, and Black Lives Matter scum will somehow be released on their own recognizance whereas any true Trump supporters will remain in solitary confinement after the judge throws the book at them.  Such are fascist countries.   In other Joe Biden news, the National Parks Service BANS fireworks at Mt. Rushmore this year.   Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Gottlieb who led the FDA during the Trump administration says, “Americans will be gathering before the Fourth of July.”  Joe Biden had said earlier in the week that we would be ‘lucky’ if we could gather in small groups.  F**k that, too.  The country is getting ready to erupt.  Soon.
  77. 2021 Saturday G: In other news, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence announce the birth of their first grandchild.  Next, apparently the Portland, Oregon, cops took the fight to the Antifa human scum and kept them in check after a rough couple of days before.  We hope they begin cracking some skulls and run these scumbags out of the state.  Elsewhere, the Russian cops detain 200 people who were attending an opposition forum.  We learned yesterday that Putin’s No. 1 critic- Alexei Navalny- was moved from a prison near Moscow to an undisclosed black site.  These people want to see him freed.  Now, they probably are going to be joining him.
  78. 2021 Saturday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,469,346 confirmed cases, +445,489, 2,647,229, confirmed deaths, +8,342, and 67,621,472 confirmed recoveries, +252,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,633,697 confirmed cases, up 126,711 from yesterday’s reporting, 538,918 confirmed deaths, UP 3,160, and 115,379,301 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.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 210,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Senile Joe, in another 12 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the frigging ‘VID.
  79. 2021 Saturday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,616,872 confirmed cases, 55,336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 450 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 351,419 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- North Dakota, aka the Peace Garden State: currently, they have 100,973 confirmed cases, 1,488 confirmed deaths, and 98,797 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 817,799 confirmed cases, 5,988 confirmed deaths, and 776,099 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Peru, the home of the Incan Empire at least until Francisco Pizarro arrived on scene: 1,402,610 cases of the old Hubei Hooey, 48,664 confirmed deaths, and 1,308,175 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, why even bother- they’re liars. 
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.824 per gallon, $3.543 in Hawaii, and $3.252 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe, how about allowing fracking to continue as well as the Keystone XL Pipeline?  It would be beneficial for the people of this country.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,048,361,528,794 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: Here are the results for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3542 with a $28 million jackpot on the line: 03, 07, 08, 13, 21, and Mega 19.  Out of 117,459 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,731.  The 5/5 ticket was sold at La Positas Liquor & Market in Santa Barbara, CA 93105.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #828 with a $169 million jackpot up for grabs- 05, 11, 51, 56, 61, and Powerball 02.  Out of 76,264 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $10,854 apiece.
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Famed middleweight boxing champion “Marvelous Marvin” Hagler died from unexpected causes at age 66.  At one time, he would hold the WBA, WBC, IBF, and The Ring magazine middleweight boxing titles of the world while compiling a pro record of 67 fights, 62 wins (52 KOs), 3 losses, and 2 draws.
  83. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned with his third solo album, “American Son,” on June 17, 1980, which did much to boost the singer/musician’s solo career.  There is no questioning his unique powerful voice, Helm could belt them out with the best of them and sang many of the Band’s most notable songs.  Here- like the best of vocalists, he reinterprets the works of others and does one hell of a job.  Joining Levon Helm (drums, vocals, harmonicas) are Buddy Emmons (perhaps the foremost pedal steel guitarist of our day), Muscle Shoals, Alabama, session drummer Jerry Carrigan, and an ever-growing cast of numerous other talented musicians and vocalists to round out the sound.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do which is a great deal.  Seek it out now.

  60. 2021 Sunday: First of all, following his one-week suspension without pay by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, misogynist and bully Deputy Press Secretary T.J. Ducklo offers his resignation.  Good riddance.  Speaking of the ‘Biden administration,’ progressives are demanding the ‘Biden Justice Department’ pursue now acquitted not once but twice Donald J. Trump.  We surmise the reason for this is (1) because they hate the former president; (2) angry as hell (all the time); (3) have no clue as to how to push their agenda (which very few want); and (4) are mostly crazy, loony, feeble, or plain stupid so they need someone upon whom to divert attention away from them and onto the target.   Folks, we make a bold prediction: this administration- one that ‘won’ via questionable circumstances- is going to crash and burn far sooner than even they believe and are going to become a laughingstock not just here in our country but around the world.  Speaking of Mr. Trump’s victory, his impeachment lawyers said, “We’re going to Disney World!”  Have a wonderful time!
  61. 2021 Sunday A: The Biden White House warns Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece- Meena Harris- to stop linking her personal brand to the sitting vice president.  This is wrong so they are prohibiting (other than for Hunter Biden and his uncles and aunts- they’re okay).   Speaking of Vice President Harris, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says based upon the precedent the reprobate Democrats set in the SECOND UNWARRANTED IMPEACHMENT OF THE 45th PRESIDENT, once the GOP retakes the House of Representatives and reclaims the Senate (hopefully without keeping “Mitch the Maggot” McConnell in a position of leadership- he has to go) because she has said and done things that qualify her for kangaroo court impeachment.  So, too, does enfeebled old Joe- send him packing.   Meanwhile, recent in polls in California show that not only is dimwit Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric “Keep Everything Locked Down” Garcetti, but also Senator Dianne Feinstein’s approval ratings have hit their lowest mark ever- down in the thirties.  Poor Di-Fi.  What do all three have in common?  They’re Democrats.
  62. 2021 Sunday B: In the glorious metropolis of New York City, after four stabbings in the subway of homeless people- two of whom died- forever-wasted Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Democrat, has sent 500 members of the NYPD into the underground tunnels to keep order.  Now, they NEED the cops.  Wow.  Speaking of NYC, we learn that mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, failed presidential primary candidate, has a campaign manager with close ties to jihadist/activist Linda Sarsour.  This should disqualify Mr. Yang as of YESTERDAY.  Speaking of Anti-Semites, since Joe Biden ‘won’ on November 6, 2020, he has had phone calls with 10 world leaders (or whoever’s in his earpiece has)- including the Chi-Coms (who own him), Russia, and others- BUT NOT with Israel.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached out early to Mr. Biden but so far, the ‘Biden administration’ has not responded.  This is NOT good.  Israel is our number one ally in the region but the Anti-Semites in the progressive wing of the Democrat Party HATE the world’s sole Jewish state. We expect the BDS movement will return on steroids.
  63. 2021 Sunday C: RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel chides the Democrats for wasting so much time chasing a white whale- the impeachment of Donald Trump a second time- instead of working on things the American people need and demand.   Speaking of the GOP, the Louisiana Grand Old Party censures Senator Bill Cassidy for voting to convict President Donald J. Trump.  His counterpart, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski recognizes the danger she’s in in the 2022 Mid-Terms because she, too, voted to convict and the state GOP and the voters are pissed off at her.  We think former Governor Sarah Palin should primary the closet Democrat in 2022.   In similar news, the North Carolina GOP immediately censured Senator Richard Burr for his vote to convict.  He is retiring because like his former Senate colleagues Jeff Flake, R-AZ, and Little Bob Corker, R-TN, he knows he cannot win.   Mark Walker is running to take his seat in the primary.   Finally, another disgruntled loser, Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska is quoted as saying, “Tribalism is a hell of a drug.”  You need to go, too.  Oh- one other thing- Peter Navarro says that ‘Mike Pence’s betrayal of President Trump on January 6 will be seen as the worst in history.’  We agree.
  64. 2021 Sunday D: The Minnesota Court of Appeals drops a motion to delay the start of former Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin.  Might as well get it over with, folks.  Meanwhile, in Connecticut, people remember slain Yale graduate student, shot to death by an unknown perp.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court clears the way for the extradition of an American father and son to Japan for trial.  The pair helped former Nissan Motor Company Chairman Carlos Ghosn so he could evade trial on financial misconduct charges.  Michael and Peter Taylor- the father and son- hid Ghosn in a box on a private jet back in 2019 and got him into Lebanon, a country with no extradition treaty with Japan.  They’re in trouble.
  65. 2021 Sunday E: The Pentagon is looking to automate its warplanes and warships.  Cool.  Meanwhile, Tesla announces that its electric semitruck will have a 500 KWH battery pack that should enable the truck to travel long distances following heavy loads.  Question for Elon Musk: what about the Hyperloop?  Would not the Hyperloop from one end of the country to the other be the fastest way to transport human beings, animals, and cargo?  Come on, man!   In other news, Toni Breidinger becomes the first woman of Arabic descent to compete in the Indy 500.  Although she came in 18th place, it’s still a great debut and she hopes others will follow in her footsteps. 
  66. 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 108,715,375 confirmed cases, +273,125, 2,397,312, confirmed deaths, +6,864, and 60,986,298 confirmed recoveries, +193,753.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,837,755 confirmed cases, up 12,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 488,674 confirmed deaths, UP 212, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly two weeks now.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 158,969 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  67. 2021 Sunday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,479,029 confirmed cases, 46,865 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 331,033 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Michigan: currently, they have 628,956 confirmed cases, 16,119 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 724,380 confirmed cases, 5,388 confirmed deaths, and 655,519 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 2021 Sunday H: Speaking of the Wuhan Virus, the U.S. has deep concerns over the origins of COVID-19 in communist China, especially after the World Health Organization has tried to protect their bosses in Beijing.  National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan is concerned about the WHO claiming there’s ‘insufficient data to link the Chi-Com Virus to the Chi-Coms’ as well as the fact Beijing continues trying to tie the U.S. Army to the crimes THEY committed.  One thing the WHO did admit to is that the number of cases in Wuhan were 500-percent higher than the Chi-Coms reported.    
  69. 2021 Sunday I: In Oregon, four people who have received all vaccinations for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu have now tested positive for the virus.  Uh, okay?   Across the country, about 38 million people have received all injections of the vaccine.  Meanwhile, an aide of New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo cover up the numbers of deaths in the Empire State’s nursing homes is now going to work for the Biden administration and work on the same flipping thing.  These people should be in prison.  Together.  Oh- the Obamacare exchanges are going to reopen but without additional funding so the site can hire additional staff with which to peddle the greatest boondoggle in the history of the United States.  In other fascinating news about COVID-19, since Philadelphia locked down in March 2020, there have been 2,200 shootings and 500-plus homicides.  This year, they have already seen 60 people killed.  They blame this on the Chinese Virus, you know, the “Panda Pandemic.”
  70. 2021 Sunday J: In other interesting news from around the world, the people of Myanmar are dealing with a crime wave not seen since the last time the junta of generals took control of the government.  The junta has emptied many thugs from the prisons and have inserted them into the crowds of peaceful protesters demanding the release of their elected leaders and a restoration of their democratically-elected government.  The freedom-loving people say the infiltrators cause violence so things can get out of control  which then allows the military to crack down even harder.  We hate to say this, but it sounds sort of like what happened in the United States on January 6, 2021, when peaceful protesters walked to the Capitol and then mobs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter criminals stormed the Capitol, the one that NO one reinforced, even though weeks before, President Trump offered up to 10,000 National Guard troops.  Now we have walls around the Capitol and troops walking the streets.  Sounds rather like what’s going on in Yangon, Myanmar.
  71. 2022 Monday: Folks, stay tuned for whatever is to come next…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “The Essential Collection: Who Knows Where the Time Goes?”- came out on January 31, 2017, and featured a delightful collection of tunes from this legendary British folk-rock group.  Of all British bands of this nature, Fairport Convention- and the Strawbs- have gone the distance and what a distance it has been.  It must be horribly tough for archivists to cull through hours and hours and hours of music to compile this three-disc set, seeking the perfect tidbit, the perfect nugget, the perfect audio keepsake for fans- novice and veteran alike- to cherish forever.  We hope you will visit your favorite site for the absolute best in rock and popular music and consider adding it to your collection.  We think you will be extremely glad that you did.  Seek it out now.

  60. 2019 Wednesday: A medical team in Israel claims to have discovered a cure for cancer.  As soon as this is announced, the world medical community begins blasting them as liars.  Meanwhile, the government of Canada informs Havana that it’s pulling out half its embassy staff following the 14th case of the mystery microwave attacks that have bedeviled both U.S. and Canadian diplomats and workers.  Time to nuke Cuba.
  61. 2020 Thursday: The question-and-answer phase in the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump continues as Adam Schiff continues lying and lying.  He claims he does not know the alleged ‘whistleblower,’ Eric C., who spent time on the National Security Council with another man- Shawn Misko- who happens to have gone to work for the House Intel Committee chairman AFTER the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky occurred.  We are expected to believe this…what a load.   Elsewhere, as cases of the Chinese Virus continue skyrocketing, the Chi-Coms’ lackey Dr. Tedros at the World Health Organization declares a ‘global emergency,’ something that does not occur all that often.  It is what it is.  Thank you, communist China, thank you.
  62. 2021 Saturday: DAY ELEVEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- after the first 10 days, President Joe Biden has signed 40 executive orders and memorandums.  Next, the Department of Justice rolls back on Trump administration policies regarding crime and sentencing.  Could it be President Biden is returning to his old ways and seeking to send minorities to prison for longer terms?  That would surprise NO one around here.  Meanwhile, Texas Congressman Chip Roy urges Rep. Sandy Cortez to apologize to Senator Ted Cruz whom she was whining ‘tried to kill her’ on January 6.  Dingbat.   Elsewhere, Ohio lawmakers seek to make June 14 to be “Donald John Trump Day.”  We like that.  Finally, Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene- under assault by multitudes of rabid liberals- says she will ‘NEVER stop fighting for America First Patriots.’  God bless you, congresswoman.  Speaking of Rep. Greene, Democratic-Socialist firebrand Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar says, ‘Greene MUST BE REMOVED from Congress so she will feel safer.’  How about this- how about you returning to Somalia and STFU?  That would work for millions of Americans.   Next, regarding Muslims, President Biden says he’s going to move to shield thousands of Syrian ‘refugees’ from being deported back to their home country.
  63. 2021 Saturday A: Elsewhere, as COVID-19 funds dry up, American Airlines warn thousands of workers that ‘furloughs are coming.’  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, investigators are onsite in Wuhan, China, trying to determine where exactly the coronavirus pandemic began and how it began.   Meanwhile, France says it’s not going to implement a third COVID-19 lockdown.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, farmers in India are going on a hunger strike after clashing with law enforcement during protests.  In order to counter this grassroots anger, New Delhi has limited internet usage.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security orders ICE and Border Patrol officers NO longer to use the term ‘illegal aliens’ in either their speech or in official documents but to use the euphemism ‘undocumented migrant.’  Oooh, touchy-feelie, we like that.  Makes you feel warm and snug all over now doesn’t it…
  64. 2021 Saturday B: The South Carolina GOP censures Congressman Tom Rice over his vote to impeach President Donald J. Trump.  We smell a primary challenger coming next year.  Next, following the Annual March for Life, pro-life demonstrators are calling on lawmakers to pass more pro-life legislation.  We hope they do.  Next, the RNC plans on inviting President Donald J. Trump to its spring donor retreat.   Speaking of the GOP, it plans on meeting with Joe Biden to discuss his appalling lack of concern for the loss of hundreds of thousands of blue collar, union, energy sector jobs.  We mean, WTF, Joe?  Finally, lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are arguing over making fencing around the Capitol Building permanent.  This is crazy,  there is no threat, yet Democrats seek to perpetuate the FALSE NOTION that threat exists for lawmakers and staffers.  We must vote this scum out of office ASAP. 
  65. 2021 Saturday C: Senator Rand Paul slams the idea of COVID-19 testing for all domestic airlines flights.  We concur, it’s unnecessary and stupid as we know the chance of catching the virus on an airliner is less than catching it in a restaurant which is extremely LOW.  Yet, elected Democrats and Deep State apparatchiks continue feeding us this dope.  Simultaneously, the CDC orders that anyone aboard public transportation must- guess what- wear a flipping facemask.  Goofy.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, a case of the South African variant has been discovered in Maryland.   Next, the warden at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, the place where big Democrat donor and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein most likely was murdered to keep him silent, is retiring.  Elsewhere, we learn today that the top ISIS leader in Iraq was killed in a U.S. airstrike.  Finally, Facebook is hiring a ‘compliance officer’ amid ‘security concerns.’
  66. 2021 Saturday D: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,403,247 confirmed cases, +421,801, 2,214,613, confirmed deaths, +10,917, and 56,654,869 confirmed recoveries, +292,859.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,283,491 confirmed cases, up 127,099 from yesterday’s reporting, 443,929 confirmed deaths, UP 2,649, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden.    
  67. 2021 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: 3,291,137 confirmed cases, 40,216 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 407 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 314,033 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: U.S. Virgin Islands: currently, they have 2,398 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, but 2,283 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 633,991 confirmed cases, 4,700 confirmed deaths, and 558,249 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 2021 Saturday F: An 11-alarm fire in Passaic, New Jersey, at a recycling center is raging away.  Firefighters from more than 20 firehouses are on site battling the blaze that erupted yesterday.  The center is one of the biggest employers in the city and it appears they may not be able to save it.  Meanwhile, tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets in Lansing, Michigan, demanding that high school sports be restored but Democrat crackpot Governor Gretchen Whitmer won’t permit it being the out-of-control authoritarian that she is.  Keep fighting people, fight to keep your rights.
  69. 2021 Saturday G: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  Let’s see some winners!  How soon before Democratic-Socialists demand that lottery winners hand over 90-percent of their winnings so the Dems can then redistribute them to their beloved illegal aliens?  Don’t laugh- these people are scumbags and they’ve never seen a dollar they didn’t want to redistribute to someone undeserving of it.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3530 with $16 million on the line: 01, 06, 13, 19, 45, and Mega 12.  Out of 113,780 winning tickets, FIVE people had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $7,636 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) 7/11 in Roseville, CA 95661; (2) Circle K in Irvine, CA 92606; (3) Power Market in Pittsburgh, CA 94565; (4) 7/11 in Westminster, CA 92683; and (5) 7/11 in Pleasant Hill, CA 94523.  Next here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #816 with a $30 million jackpot on the line: 01,02, 07, 52, 61, and Powerball 04.  Out of 55,699 winning tickets, the highest winners were 38 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $390 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson’s next album was another excellent album- “Dream Attic,” an album that hit record store shelves on August 30, 2010.  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but his current band: Taras Prodaniuk (bass and vocals), Michael Jerome (drums and vocals), and Joel Zifkin (fiddle, mandolin, and vocals).  The band rocks its best and the tunes are superb.  We do hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-expanding collection of albums from ‘back in the day’ as compared to the crap one now must listen to on most radio stations like catfish-lipped sluts with artificially-oversized butts, brain-dead rappers with equally brain-dead eyes, and chicks with single names and humongous, lab-engineered boobs and little else to their credit, this is something that will raise your heart from the perverse gutter into which WOKE has shoved everyone’s ears.  Seek it out now and enjoy- you will be so glad you did, of that, we are certain.

  52. 2019 Saturday: The Covington High School kids from Kentucky are at the U.S. Capitol on this date wearing MAGA hats and celebrating America.  As they celebrate, the Black Hebrew Israelites, a hate group, is calling them all manner of vile and despicable names.  This does not dampen their celebration.   This is when an aged Indian chief named Nathan Phillips, a man who supposedly served with distinction in Vietnam, a member of the Indigenous Peoples’ March, stirs up trouble with the kids.  The phony Indian chieftain intruded into the mass of the young kids, banging his drum and chanting war songs, and got right into the face of young Sandman who stood silently and reverently.  The news media would slant the incident into making the high schoolers a bunch of racist bigots and lovers of the KKK which shocked the ENTIRE PLANET!  However, approximately two years later after attorney Linn Wood went after the Fake News Media, young Mr. Sandman would become fabulously wealthy after the New York Times and several TV channels had to pay tens of millions of dollars for defamation and slander. 
  53. 2019 Saturday A: In London, England, drummer/percussionist with the Michael Schenker Group- Edward “Ted” McKenna, died at the age of 68 from complications from a routine hernia operation.  Besides playing with MSG, he played with loads of other bands.
  54. 2020 Sunday: In the AFC Championship Game, the Kansas City Chiefs, 14-4, beat the Tennessee Titans, 11-8, by a final score of 35-24.  Meanwhile, in the NFC Championship Game, the San Francisco 49ers, 15-3, beat the Green Bay Packers, 14-4, by a final score of 37-20.  Super Bowl LIV will be between the 49ers and the Chiefs.   Elsewhere, in a rare event in Honolulu, Hawaii, cops go to evict a man who responds by shooting three of them, killing two, and then sets his home ablaze.  The fire leaps to four neighboring homes with the suspect dying in the blaze.  Meanwhile, a nightclub shooting in Kansas City, Missouri, kills two- including the shooter- while injuring another 15 people.
  55. 2021 Tuesday: A Politico poll (note- Politico is extremely far-left in its politics) suggests that 1-in-5 Republicans want President Trump convicted in his second impeachment trial.  This also means that 4-in-5 Republicans do NOT want to see him convicted so which number makes more sense to you?  One-in-five Republicans are RINOs and should be expelled from the party.  Period.  Speaking of the inaccuracy of political polls, Gallup reports that ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s favorability among the American people stands at 57-percent.  Everyone with half a brain or more understands that this is BS.  Elsewhere, Dick Morris tells Newsmax that ‘polls are being manipulated to hurt President Donald J. Trump as he leaves office.’ 
  56. 2021 Tuesday A: Speaking of the incoming ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden administration, we learned today that the Department of Homeland Security has hired a private security firm, Hana Industries for $1.6 million to the end of the month to ensure the 46th president’s personal security.  This says that ‘Pro-China Joe’ can trust no one in federal law enforcement, the National Guard, or the U.S. Secret Service.  It also shows that the 46th president is a usurper, that he (if he remains cognizant of reality) and those around him know implicitly that he did NOT win the 2020 Presidential Election.  What’s even worse is that this demonstrates that we will now have a ‘secret police,’ a ‘Gestapo,’ if you will, sworn to protect this usurper and to punish his enemies.  Everyone wake up and take note.   Regarding the National Guard’s role in securing the Inauguration, Republican Congressman Matt Waltz of Florida says that fellow Congressman Steve Cohen’s attacks on the Guard are insulting.
  57. 2021 Tuesday B: Four of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s picks for Cabinet positions are facing U.S. Senate committees today in confirmation hearings.  First, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, next Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Avril Haines- director of national security, and Alejandro Mayorkas, director of Homeland Security.   Oh, Beijing Biden also picks a tranny to be his assistant secretary of health.  Good for you for checking off all the boxes there, Mr. President Biden.  In the same vein, RINO Senator Lindsey Graham says, ‘watch out for Biden ushering in a radical agenda as quickly as possible,’ (one we believe you are going to support, you fair-weather friend).  Outgoing U.S. Secretary Mike Pompeo accuses the Chi-Coms of committing genocide on their Uighur and other ethnic and religious minorities.  Oh- for some reason, the U.S. Department of State prematurely announced the ‘departure of President Donald J. Trump.’  What’s up with that?
  58. 2021 Tuesday C: Quinnipiac reports that outgoing President Donald J. Trump’s final approval ratings are 34-percent approval and 61-percent disapproval.  This supports Dick Morris’ assertions earlier in this post.  Morris also says it will take a while to appreciate ALL of the accomplishments of the 45th president (which is WHY we believe they will strip him from the history and record books).  Speaking of Mr. Trump, many fear that all the great accomplishments he had on stopping illegal immigration, sound tax policy, and holding the Chi-Coms accountable for their actions now are at risk with feeble Old Joe Biden entering the White House.  He will strip them all away.  The country will never be the same ever again.  Speaking of Trump-related stories, the Cancel Culture at Harvard University wants ALL real and honorary degrees given to Trump administration officials stripped away, denounced, and tossed into the dumpster.  Meanwhile, Canada begs the incoming 46th president ‘NOT to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline on Day #1.’   
  59. 2021 Tuesday D: Famed pollster and commentator Doug Schoen is joining Newsmax.  Next, lawyers for ex-Michigan Governor Rick Snyder say the people hounding him over the Flint water crisis filed their papers in the wrong county.   Elsewhere, the N.Y. Mets fire their general manager over sexually explicit tweets to women.  Why do they never learn?  Say it in person or not at all, dummy.   Next, we learn that Trump attorney and ‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani won’t represent the former 45th president at the second impeachment trial.  Meanwhile, the Wyoming GOP votes to censure RINO Congresswoman Liz Cheney.  Note to Wyoming: BOOT HER OUT NOW.  Finally, according to author David Horowitz, ‘Democrats HATE America’s founding principles.’
  60. 2021 Tuesday E: The U.S. secretary of the Army hammers the Department of Defense for its bureaucratic response to the Capitol Hill riots of January 6.  Speaking of this, forever-angry Hillary Clinton bellows that we ‘need a 9-11-style commission to dig into Donald Trump’s role in encouraging violence at the U.S. Capitol on the sixth day of January 2021.’  People had a right to be angry, Hillary, even though more evidence continues coming to light daily showing the shoe’s on the other foot, that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered Capitol Hill law enforcement to stand aside and to allow the Antifa infiltrators to enter the nation’s seat of government unmolested and unhindered.  When the evidence is out in full, the attention will shift onto the Democrats which is why Speaker Pelosi is sounding the alarm over the NSA’s upcoming investigation into BOTH ‘Pro-China Joe’ and son, Hunter Biden.   Meanwhile, Mike Lindell of ‘My Pillow’ fame says there is 100-percent evidence of Chi-Com and Canuck interference in the 2020 Presidential Election which is why Dominion Voting Systems now wants to sue him.
  61. 2021 Tuesday F: Outgoing President Donald J. Trump slaps communist Venezuela with a heap of brand-new sanctions.  He also tapes a farewell address which is smart- move to leave before ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s new (Chi-Com-backed) Secret Police can catch you.  Meanwhile, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, slams ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for his words that are encouraging an invasion force of illegal aliens heading north to our southern border.  Elsewhere, a political scientist finds himself charged for being an ‘unregistered agent of Iran.’  Watertown professor Kaveh Lotfolah Afrasiabi finds himself in trouble for schilling for the Iranians while claiming to be a neutral commentator.
  62. 2021 Tuesday G: Germany reports a NEW COVID-19 virus strain that is unlike the one discovered in the United Kingdom a few months back.  Meanwhile, Los Angeles County is lifting restrictions on air quality controls because Chi-Vi fatalities awaiting cremation are backing up and need to head to the furnace ASAP.  In other news, Georgia moves to certify the U.S. Senate run-off races of January 5, blaming President Trump for the loss of two GOP Senate seats we allege was the price to get rid of the 45th president.
  63. 2021 Tuesday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 95,963,947 confirmed cases, +784,744, 2,051,049, confirmed deaths, +17,408, and 52,854,855 confirmed recoveries, +398,238.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,290,413 confirmed cases, up 172,654 from yesterday’s reporting, 403,063 confirmed deaths, UP 1,807, and 10,511,075 confirmed recoveries, UP 43,157.
  64. 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,049,980 confirmed cases, 33,945 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 324 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 293,807 confirmed cases, 3,974 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Dakota: currently, they have 96,093 confirmed cases, 1,408 confirmed deaths, and 93,451 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 558,249 confirmed cases, 4,044 confirmed deaths, and 473,572 confirmed recoveries. 
  65. 2021 Tuesday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,950.52, UP 116.26 points (+0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,197.18, UP 198.68 points (+1.53%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,798.91, UP 30.66 points (+0.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,848.00 per troy oz., -0.20 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.28 per troy ounce, -0.035 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,094.70 per troy oz, +2.70 (+0.25%) while the price of COPPER is $3.63 per pound, -0.0015 (-0.04%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,365.00 per troy oz, -30.10 (-1.26%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $53.18 per barrel, +0.20 (+0.38%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00.  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you…
  66. 2021 Tuesday K: Moron David Hogg calls for the resignation of Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene.  Screw him.  Next, we learn that Senator Mitch McConnell, R-KY, Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, and outgoing Vice President Mike Pence are going to skip outgoing President Donald J. Trump’s farewell ceremonies at White House tomorrow in order to attend the Inauguration Day ceremonies of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Scum.  Meanwhile, the FBI is continuing its search for the scumbag who placed pipe bombs around the Capitol Building on January 6.      
  67. 2021 Tuesday L: Outgoing Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli tells Greg Kelly of Newsmax TV that the ‘inauguration of Joe Biden is going to be safe, that it was always going to be safe, but that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was requesting crew-operated 50-caliber machine guns on the roofs of armored vehicles as though we were keeping peace in Iraq or fighting in Afghanistan.  He said that ‘thankfully, the DOD nixed this request’ but what is clear and should be clear to every American is that what the Democrats are doing is NOT GOOD.  They KNOW we KNOW they stole the election, and that ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden is a usurper.  In the history of civil disturbances in this country, we have never had 50-caliber MG squads ready to light up demonstrators.  Folks, the ONLY demonstrators we will see tomorrow are the useful idiots- Antifa, BLM, and perhaps Iranian, Russian, and Chi-Com intel officers- stirring up violence among their bought-and-paid lackeys and bozos.   Meanwhile, Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO, the pistol-packing mama, disputes all charges made by crackhead Congressman Steve “Fried Chicken” Cohen, D-TN, who is equating her with being a Nazi and who claims that Congresswoman Boebert’s mother ‘participated in the Capitol Hill riots of January 6.’  What a worthless POS you are, “Fried Chicken” Cohen.  What we are going to see tomorrow is a Democrat-engineered “Beer Hall Putsch” in the streets of D.C. and across the country, a ginned up uprising they can use as an excuse for taking our civil liberties away from us.  
  68. 2021 Tuesday M: Next, please stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1626 with an $865 million jackpot up for grabs (please see ‘P’ below).  When will Democrats tell lottery winners that their ‘patriotic obligations to the country are to hand over their entire pot (while still paying the taxes on it) so they can then redistribute the money to illegal aliens and Muslim refugees and whatever other crackpot, left-wing loony tunes schemes they have for seizing wealth?  It’s coming folks, just like the seizure of ALL privately-owned gold, silver, platinum, and whatever else the scumbags can get their grubby mitts on just like the requirement that every American middle-class family take either homeless people or an illegal alien family into their homes and provide them all care, comfort, and support.  Don’t laugh, people, don’t laugh.  
  69. 2021 Tuesday N: Incoming Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that President Donald J. Trump has the correct views on communist China.  He also says that the new administration is going to reevaluate the North Korea ‘issue’ from top to bottom.  Note- we predict war within the first six months due to mismanagement, mistakes, and a fossilized view of the Hermit Kingdom.   We also learn today that incoming #47 plans to keep the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem but will press for Palestinian statehood.  We predict war coming here, too.  Next, numerous U.S. schools announce they won’t view the Inauguration Day events out of fear that violence will explode across the country and the little imps will tremble under their desks.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader (for today) “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell shows his true colors by driving a dagger into the back of the president who helped him accomplish things with the federal courts heretofore unseen in decades by saying Trump ‘fed lies’ to the Capitol Hill rioters of January 6, 2021.  You’ve seen the same tape we have, Mitch; you are almost guaranteeing the death of the GOP.  Good luck.
  70. 2021 Tuesday O: We learn that tomorrow a judge is going to decide the House race in New York’s upstate, the last race to be called: House District 22.  Former Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, Republican, holds a 29-vote lead over current Rep. Anthony Brindisi, Democrat.  Out of more than 325,000 votes cast, Tenney has clung to this slim margin of victory and the race should have been called long ago.  We will find out, hopefully, tomorrow.   Elsewhere, Twitter users BLAST CNN (Communist News Network, LOL) for seeking to ban Newsmax and perhaps One America News, too.  Getting Orwellian around here, folks.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal says that outgoing President Donald J. Trump could form the ‘Patriot Party.’  Finally, FOX News terminates long-time pundit Chris Stirewalt over his criticism of the network calling Arizona ‘early’ on Election Night.   Fox News could not handle the truth.
  71. 2021 Tuesday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1626 with an $865 million jackpot on the line: 10, 19, 26, 28, 50, and Mega 16.  Out of 716,770 winning tickets, ONE person had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,401,723.  Congratulations!  The pot is still climbing!  The winning ticket was sold at a 7/11 in Artesia, CA 90701.
  72. 2021 Tuesday Q: As Bea O’Malley predicted in her last three posts of last week, incoming President Joseph R. Biden is going to face tests on a variety of fronts.  Iranian commandoes and paratroopers are holding rehearsals for what might come in the Persian Gulf.  They are holding drills at the mouth of the Straits of Hormuz.  We expect the Chi-Coms, Russia, Venezuela, North Korea, even Cuba, to begin causing trouble because incoming #46 is not up to the task nor is his army of Obama ‘retreads.’  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump’s former adviser Steve Bannon gets one of the pardons the president signed today.
  73. 2022 Wednesday: Stick around  and uncover the dirty schemes the GOP is doing to cause Joe trouble…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We hope to share the music of vocalist Robert Palmer at some point within the next decade.

[v] We hope to promote the music of America at some point within the next decade.  Please stay tuned for further information.

[vi] We hope to do the music of Carl Perkins the same time we do Johnny Cash and other pioneers of American rock and roll, country, and rockabilly music.  We hope you will stay tuned for the day when we do.

[vii] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[viii] 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.

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, AS MUCH AS IT CAUSES ME SHAME TO BEG, SOMEONE HAS TO HELP JOE OTHERWISE, OUR PARTY IS GOING DOWN THE CRAPPER IN NOVEMBER…

13. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 2022

59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020. What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?

  53. 2016 Wednesday: The largest Powerball jackpot in history- $1.6 billion- was divided among three winners.  Elsewhere, in the Pakistani city of Quetta, angry jihadists carry out a suicide bombing on a polio center, killing at least 15 people, and wounding far too many others.  Ah, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes yet again.  Meanwhile, in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, ISIS thugs attack the Pakistani Consulate killing at least 9 people and wounding another 12 or more.  Finally, Iran frees 10 U.S. Navy sailors it took into custody when their two patrol boats ‘strayed into Iranian waters.’  No, they did not enter your waters, you scumbags.
  54. 2017 Friday: Turkish strongman Tayyip Recep Erdogan announces that Turkish forces will remain on the island of Cyprus for the rest of time.  They invaded the island during the 1970s and fought to displace the Greeks.  The island has been divided between the two countries ever since.  Speaking of thugs, for the first time the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons blasts Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and members of his regime for using chemical weapons on innocent civilians.
  55. 2018 Saturday: In the NFC Division Round, the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Atlanta Falcons in a low-scoring affair by a score of 15-10.  In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots wipe out the Tennessee Titans with a final score of 35-14.  Meanwhile, thanks to Deep State resistance, a false alarm that warned of a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii sent the islands into a panic, with people abandoning cars on a highway and preparing to flee their homes; officials apologized and said the alert was sent when someone (obviously on purpose) hit the wrong button during a shift change.  So far, the feds have not identified the prick.
  56. 2019 Sunday: In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots pound the snot out the Los Angeles Chargers with a final score of 41-28.  In the NFC Division Round, the New Orleans Saints wallop the Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 20-14, knocking Super Bowl LII champion Eagles out of the running.   Elsewhere, following insane elections in Venezuela in which, many people believe the President of the National Assembly Juan Guaidó won, Caracas police briefly detain him after he said he ‘was prepared to take power.’  This would create an international crisis.
  57. 2020 Monday: The people of Iran continue protesting their illegitimate government by calling for the ouster of the grand ayatollah, someone who should have been droned long ago.  Meanwhile, Sen. Cory “Creepy” Booker, D-NJ, becomes the fifteenth Democrat to leave the running for the 2020 Democratic nomination.  He does this because he has 0-percent support and cannot raise money.  Also, because the man is stranger than f**k and claims NOT to be gay.  Sure, Cory, sure.  Elsewhere, the U.S. expels 21 Royal Saudi Air Force pilots from the country following the shooting in Pensacola, Florida, which took the lives of American service personnel.  The Saudis were found to have jihadist sympathies.  Will we ever learn?
  58. 2021 Wednesday: Although many called for leniency, the feds executed Lisa Montgomery at its Terre Haute prison facility, the first woman executed in 67 years.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court blocks mail delivery of the abortion drug during the Chi-Com-caused pandemic.  Meanwhile, Acting Attorney-General Rosen warns of violence both in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day as well as in all 50 states.  Finally, pot-smoking Mayor Bill Di Blasio of New York City says the city is ‘canceling $17 million in contracts with Donald J. Trump.’  Wow.
  59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020.  What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?  Moving on, we learn that ‘fewer than 10 scurrilous Republicans’ support the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump which is occurring now on Capitol Hill in the U.S. House of Representatives.  As the impeachment BS continues, Representative Matt Rosendale, R-Montana, says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, should be ‘stripped of her leadership role,’ something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  Meanwhile, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces he will select another Obama-Biden alum- Samantha Power- to head USAID.  Next, the U.S. Senate announces confirmation hearings for incoming Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen beginning on January 19, the same day the Democrats want to impeach President Trump a second time.
  60. 2021 Wednesday B: Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax TV says that ‘in a strange way President-elect Joe Biden is listening to his outgoing predecessor President Donald J. Trump in that he is nominating what the country perceives to be moderates to work in his administration and keeping the ultra-left riffraff at arm’s length.’  Interesting point.  Speaking of the 45th president, a recent McLaughlin poll says Trump’s approval ratings have been holding at 49-percent, his highest since the election.  Meanwhile, the U.S. special envoy to South Korea Henry Harris will be leaving his post next week.  Elsewhere, Newt Gingrich says there is ‘enormous danger’ in the ability to dictate whether President Donald J. Trump (or anyone else for that matter) can seek the presidency ever again.’  Nope, times are changing for the worst, folks.  Finally, ever-traitorous “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, the current Senate majority leader, signals he will go along with the second impeachment of President Trump.  What a guy.
  61. 2021 Wednesday C: President Donald J. Trump’s EPA through its push to impose industry-backed regulations is a tactic by which, it can tie the hands of incoming President-elect Joe Biden’s hands when it comes to forcing Green New Deal BS on the American people.  This will allow industry to have a greater say in proceeding with projects than the federal government, which is good, extremely good.  Meanwhile, YouTube has suspended President Donald Trump’s channel on their site.  Censorship run amok yet again, folks.  Elsewhere, at the request of President-elect Joe Biden, Operation Warp Speed’s Dr. Moncef Slaoui has submitted his resignation letter.      
  62. 2021 Wednesday D: Please stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3525 with a jackpot of $11,000,000 up for grabs: 03, 17, 21, 27, 35, and Mega 05.  Out of 151,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $25,559 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at Riviera Foods in Kelseyville, CA 95451 and Shell in Irvine, CA 92606.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #811 with a jackpot of $550,000,000 at stake: 04, 19, 23, 25, 49, and Powerball 14.   Out of 424,484 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,768,497 apiece.  One winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in San Diego, CA 92111 and Paul’s Market in San Jose, CA 95112.
  63. 2021 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has been impeached a second time what with 219 Democrats and 10 Republicans voting for and 197 Republicans voting against (232 for, 197 against).  What a disgrace for our country, a politically-motivated impeachment designed to prevent Donald J. Trump from running ever again for the White House.   One thing we have learned is that there is NOT enough support among Republicans for impeachment so the Senate might waffle on forging ahead with a trial.  The negative repercussions could be tremendous for BOTH sides.  Time for President Trump to release ALL UFO files, all JFK assassination files, and all files on the corruption and crookedness of the entire Biden Family.  Do it NOW, Mr. President, do it NOW before our enemies take advantage of our insane politics and light us up.  
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 92,240,036 confirmed cases, +856,492, 1,975,707, confirmed deaths, +18,955, and 50,922,412 confirmed recoveries, +384,517.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 23,009,789 confirmed cases, up 212,059 from yesterday’s reporting, 383,290 confirmed deaths, UP 4,270, and 9,989,455 confirmed recoveries, UP 73,884.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,815,933 confirmed cases, 31,105 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 312 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 283,363 confirmed cases, 3,869 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nebraska: currently, they have 177,883 confirmed cases, 1,847 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 510,063 confirmed cases, 3,771 confirmed deaths, and 429,929 confirmed recoveries. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,060.47, DOWN 8.22 points (-0.026%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,128.95, UP 56.52 points (+0.43%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,809.84, UP 8.65 points (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,847.40 per troy oz., -7.50 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.36 per troy ounce, -0.207 (-0.81%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,105.40 per troy oz, -5.30 (-0.48%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.003 (+0.08%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,397.10 per troy oz, +20.90 (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.79 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: In other economic news, consumer prices rose by 0.4-percent.  December saw the largest increase in four months.  The U.S. Department of Labor said that excluding core prices- energy costs and food prices- consumer prices rose by 0.1-percent and just 1.6-percent over the past 12 months.  Rising oil and gas prices as well as increases in the cost of food driving the increase.  Meanwhile, the U.S. bans cotton and tomato imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China amid concerns over the appalling human rights abuses and the rampant use of Uighur slave labor.  Human Rights Watch says that 2020 was the WORST year for human rights abuses in that repressive totalitarian country since 1989.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms harvest organs from their prisoners and then sell them at astronomical prices around the globe.  Horrible. 
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Elsewhere, the CEO of Parler says the social app may not return after being de-platformed by a cabal of BIG TECH social media and shadow authoritarians working from behind the scenes to squelch FREE SPEECH.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump gave a five-minute address from the Oval Office imploring Americans NOT to engage in violence even though rumors abound about what’s to come NEXT WEEK.  A poll conducted today says that a majority of Americans expect more violence to follow on the heels of the violence the nation witnessed last week.  Can anyone say, “CHI-COMS are behind this?” They are mad about criticism about Hong Kong as well as their use of slave labor, also U.S. reaching out to Taiwan, the REAL CHINA.
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: As everyone now knows, 10 Republicans voted against President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charges of stirring up ‘an insurrection’ even though we know they know that was NOT the case.  Here are their names: (A) Rep. John Katko, NY (B) Liz Cheney, WY (C) Adam Kinzinger, IL (D) Fred Upton, MI (E) Jaime Herrera Beutler, WA (F) Peter Meijer, MI (G) Dan Newhouse, WA (H) Anthony Gonzalez, OH (I) Tom Rice, SC and (J) David Valadao, CA.  This last congressman is especially painful for those of us from California who contributed money to help Valadao take his seat back from carpetbagger T.J. Cox.  He then turns around and drives a shiv in the president.  I guess we will be coming for him in 2022.  Ingrate.  Meanwhile, Chef Vladimir in Washington state says both Newhouse and Beutler are proving to be disappointments.  Will someone please create a vaccine for RINO Republicanism?
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Famed bassist Tim Bogert died in San Diego, California, at age 76 from the effects of cancer.  He played with Vanilla Fudge[vi], Beck, Bogert & Appice[vii], Cactus[viii], and Vanilla Fudge again until he retired from touring in 2010 due to a horrible motorcycle accident.
  71. 2022 Thursday: Friends, stick around and discover the news of the day along with all of us…

Wednesday, January 13, 2021, Today in History:  

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Thursday, January 13, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Within the next two decades, we hope to present the music of Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.

[ii] We are unclear as to when we will celebrate the music of this long-lived group but when we do, you will be the first to know.

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

[iv] We have no idea when we will begin promoting the music of this fabled country artist but you can be sure we will promote Johnny Cash at some point during the next two decades.

[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.    The album, “The Yellow Submarine” appeared on Sunday, 27-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We promoted the music of Vanilla Fudge beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  We hope you will seek this band out and add their music to your growing collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band 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.

[viii] We fucked up when we failed to celebrate the music of the hard-rocking band, Cactus, at the same time we shared the music of Vanilla Fudge with you.  We hope to rectify that mistake sometime in the next 15 years.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
