  68. 2020 Thursday B: Today is the 56th straight day of rioting and protests in the city of Portland, Oregon.  Mayor Ted Wheeler, Democrat, says federal law enforcement is responsible for the rioting when in truth, it’s the ambivalence of the mayor and his city council that bears full responsibility for the mayhem occurring in that once beautiful city’s streets.  The previous night, in a despicable act of virtue-signaling, the mayor went out on the streets to participate in the riots and the agitators threw garbage at him and told him to resign.  He suffered two bouts of tear-gassing before his security people removed him from the streets to safety  Arrest the mayor, mow down the Antifa thugs.  Bring sanity back NOW!  Meanwhile, national polling averages give “Pro-China Joe” Biden a 15-point lead over President Donald J. Trump.  According to Democrats, Trump is ‘toast’ and might as well resign and go home NOW.
  69. 2020 Thursday C: On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka the Fly, Democratic-Socialist, blubbered about comments made by Florida GOP Congressman Ted Yoho in which he called the dingbat far-left socialist a “F**king bitch.”  Well, she is a F**king Bitch and needs to be beaten in November.
  70. 2021 Friday: What will the stock market and commodities be today in usurper Joe’s America?  No telling but we are anticipating a crash of the markets sometime this summer because the crazy crap the Biden regime is doing is not for the benefit of the country but for the ‘president’ and his crime family.  Stick around and find out along with us.

  20. 1940 Monday: Following Adolf Hitler putting out peace feelers to the Brits, Lord Halifax, the British foreign secretary, rebuffs the Fuhrer by telling him that until others have freedom, Great Britain will continue the fight and won’t submit.  This, of course, outrages the Nazi leader.  He had hopes that the German and British peoples which have much in common could ally together in the fight against global Bolshevism but the Brits are having none of it.
  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.
  23. 1943 Thursday: American forces led by General George S. 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.

  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.

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.

  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.

  45. 2015 Tuesday: Los Angeles County votes to raise the minimum wage from $9 an hour to $15; the pay rate will be for county workers and those working in unincorporated sectors of the county.  Look for numerous jobs to disappear.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On June 03, 2003, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- re-released their first official ‘best of package,’ “M.U.- the Best of Jethro Tull” which featured slim pickings of 11 tracks culled from their earlier albums and again from the two albums following “Thick as a Brick” and “A Passion Play.”  The tracks, of course, are remastered and the name has changed to “The Essential Jethro Tull.”  If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “Living in the Past” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL.

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.  “Live in Edinburgh” came out on May 27, 2001, and it featured some heavy-duty rock and roll tracks delivered by one of the greatest bass players of all time, the amazing Glenn Cornick.  The band featured aforementioned amazing musician (bass, guitars, keyboards, harmonicas), Gary Pickford-Hopkins (vocals), Bernie Marsden (guitars), Mick Dyche (guitars/vocals), Jeff Jones and Kevin Currie (drums), and Steve Gurl (keyboards).   If you want to hear some amazing music by a little-known band by anyone who isn’t a Baby Boomer, please seek this album out and give it a good listen- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, Mott, the British Lions, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[ii] Not sure when or if we will ever do the music of Loggins and Messina or of each member but if we are still here in 20 years, we most likely will.

[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 celebrate the music of Johnny Winter and his brother, Edgar, at some point in the next two decades. 

[v] It is important to note that Deep State intelligence officials have been spinning all manner of tales as to Trump and the Russians to the point that everyone is confused, especially if they are inattentive.  As we found out in 2019 when the ‘investigation into Trump-Russian collusion’ led by former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller ended, there was never anything to the story yet people still believe that Trump colluded with the Russians to beat Hillary
Clinton.  Ask yourselves this: WHO would the Russians have wanted in the White House?  Hillary Clinton or Donald J. Trump?  Truthfully?  The answer is simple.  You know it in your heart.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

ENDNOTES:


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

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

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

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

[v] See previous footnote.

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

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

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

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

  51. 2020 Monday B: Statistics for shootings in Chicago over the weekend are in: 64 people shot and 11 dead.  Where are Black Lives Matter?  No where because BLM is little more than a left-wing hate group and not a group determined to protect black Americans from violence.
  52. 2021 Tuesday: JOE HELP THE PEOPLE OF CUBA!  NOW!

Trump announces his second pick for the U.S. Supreme Court: Brett Kavanaugh.  In order to take the seat of his mentor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Kavanaugh would have to undergo one of the most grueling confirmation processes heretofore seen in recent times in this country.  Eventually, he would persevere but the Democrats in the U.S. Senate did everything imaginable to destroy this excellent jurist.  God bless you, Justice Kavanaugh.
  60. 2019 Tuesday:  The MPs of Northern Ireland vote to expand LGBTQIA+ rights as well as increase the availability of abortion throughout the predominantly Protestant piece of the UK to bring it into line with not only the United Kingdom but the European Union as well.  Sad.

  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:

Famed guitarist Martin Barre returned with his next solo effort, “The Meeting,” on September 12, 1996.  Once again, the musician demonstrated just what a musical powerhouse he was and what he provided to Jethro Tull since the late 1960s, a unique, polished sound.  Joining the axe-man were Jonathan Noyce and Matt Pegg (bass), Doane Perry, Gerry Conway, and Marc Parnell (drums), Mark Tucker (guitars), Craig Milverton and Andrew Murray (keyboards), Miles Bould (percussion), Maggie Reeday (vocals), and several others.  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your listening pleasure each day.  You will be glad you did.
