  54. 2001 Wednesday: Welcome to the Wednesday edition of the NEWS of the DAY, past and present.  What are those devious Chi-Coms and Stooge No. 1- Joe Biden and Stooge No. 2- “Kooky Kamala” Harris up to today?  How are they selling out the country to Xi Jinping?  Stick around and find out along with the rest of us…

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.

  49. 2005 Tuesday: Pope Benedict XVI, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, becomes the 265th pope.  Elsewhere, the nomination of John Bolton to become the next ambassador to the United Nations receives a death blow when Senator George Voinovich, R-OH, says in committee that he ‘cannot vote for this man to become the face of the U.S. in such an important body.’  This puts the nomination of Bolton on hold for another 30 days at least so the FBI can investigate claims that he ‘yells at people’ or ‘treats them mean.’  Ai yi-yi!
  50. 2006 Wednesday: White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan announces his resignation from the White House staff.  Many expect that Karl Rove, top adviser to President George W. Bush, will take over in the press room; then again, maybe not.  The Bush administration is fearful of the mid-term elections going against the administration. 
  51. 2007 Thursday: Amnesty International does its job and reports that the Taliban is committing heinous acts on the population of Afghanistan.  It’s who these people are.

  54. 2010 Monday: Kyrgyzstan unrest continues as over 1,000 people in Jala-Abad gather in the town’s main square denouncing Otunbayeva’s interim government and chanting pro-Bakiyev slogans.  Elsewhere, election officials in Baghdad order a recount of ballots after numerous complaints were raised about the authenticity of the elections.
  55. 2011 Tuesday: In Cuba, Fidel Castro resigns from the Communist Party’s central committee.  Elsewhere, following reports that prison authorities are stripping Pfc. Bradley Manning and removing his clothes while he remains in his cell have prompted public outrage which leads to the U.S. military transferring him to Leavenworth, Kansas, where he will be housed in the military lockup, away from prying eyes.

  58. 2014 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Chinese auto manufacturer FAW Group announces it will commence taking orders for its new Red Flag L5 custom-made auto; the car is like a Ferrari and will cost the purchaser approximately $803,000. 
  59. 2015 Sunday: The European Union agrees to meet following the sinking of a refugee-laden boat in the Mediterranean that claims the lives of 900 or more people.  They hope to create a plan and to fund it that will help them prevent all such disasters. 
  60. 2016 Tuesday: In a Chi-Com court, a computer programmer by the name of Huang Yu, a resident of Sichuan, to death for having leaked more than 150,000 sensitive documents of high value to an unknown foreign power.  He won’t be sitting on death row for 20-30 years before sentence occurs.
  61. 2017 Wednesday: FOX News announces its letting go of long-time news host, Bill O’Reilly, following purported allegations of sexual improprieties.  We learned somewhat later that the accusations were ginned up so the network could boot him in favor of Tucker Carlson.   Elsewhere, Caracas, Venezuela, sees the ‘Mother of All Marches” as hundreds of thousands of people turn out to protest the dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro.  In subsequent events, several people are killed or injured on both sides of the political divide.
  62. 2018 Thursday: Following the stepping down of President Raul Castro, Cuba elects Miguel Dias-Canel the communist island nation’s new president.  Meanwhile, one day after the U.S. Senate votes to allow ‘babies on its floor,’ Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-Illinois, brings her newborn babe to the world’s most august body.   Elsewhere, the government of Ukraine is urging Russian ‘separatists’ in the Donbass not to flood a mine where the Soviet Union once stored nuclear weapons.  It could cause a humongous environmental disaster; then again, no one ever said Russians were ‘gifted individuals.’
  63. 2019 Friday: Famed German composer and conductor Martin Böttcher, dies at age 91.  Meanwhile, the U.S. National Institutes of Health announces a $350 million grant for researchers to find ways to cut the number of opioid deaths in the four hardest hit states.  Elsewhere, media reports that former Vice President (and Senator) Joe Biden has decided that next week, he will officially announce he is in the race for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  Finally, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces a bill that would raise the minimum age for tobacco products from 18 to 21.
  64. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to Chinese incompetence or by purpose, the COVID-19 continues killing people around the planet.  As of today, there are 2,382,064 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu, 165,636 confirmed deaths, and 611,791 confirmed recoveries which is great.  The United States acknowledges 762,690 confirmed cases, 40,548 confirmed deaths, and 68,119 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, communist China, the place where this debacle originated claims 88,302 confirmed cases what with- get this- 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scumbags but then, communists always lie.  When this is over will be time enough for those affected by the Wuhan Virus Crisis to begin suing the living bejeezus out of every communist official as well as the labs and the wet markets where this barbarity originated.
  65. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 141,684,613 confirmed cases, +690,758, 3,024,290  confirmed deaths, +9,715, and 81,018,628 confirmed recoveries, +562,181.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,878,296 confirmed cases, UP 10,922 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,701 confirmed deaths, UP 546, and 119,038,619 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.[ix] 
  66. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,905 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  67. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,718,223 confirmed cases, 60,994 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,173,138 confirmed cases, 34,471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,715 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,382 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Mississippi, the home of the New South: they have 309,186 confirmed cases, 7,153 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[x]   Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says he expects to see the Johnson & Johnson vaccine back in action later this week.  In other Chi-Vi news, we learn today that more than half of our fellow Americans have received at least ONE of their Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.
  68. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,047 confirmed cases, 6,335 confirmed deaths, and 828,488 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Dominican Republic, a place where horrible attacks on U.S. tourists seem to occur with shocking regularity: 261,129 cases of the virus, 3,418 confirmed deaths and 218,724 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  69. 2021 Monday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,077.63, DOWN 123.04 points (-0.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,914.76, DOWN 137.58 points (-0.98%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,163.06, DOWN 22.21 points (-0.53%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.59 per barrel, +0.17 (+0.27%).  The price of GOLD is $1,770.80 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.86 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,211.70 per troy oz, +5.20 (+0.43%) while the price of COPPER is $4.24 per pound, -0.00 (-0.01%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,797.85 per troy oz, +20.35 (+0.73%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.40%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Hong Kong dollar, one greenback equals 7.77 and in Hungarian Forint, a buck equals 299.57.[xv]   
  70. 2021 Monday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.971 per gallon, $2.822 in Florida, $3.734 in Hawaii, and $3.374 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.734.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,190,082,334,572 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- Governor Ron DeSantis,[xviii] R-FL, signs the most pro-law enforcement bill on the books and also has consequences for violent rioters.  God bless you, sir!  Next, a poll in New York state says that ’54-percent of the voters view Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Go, aka the Gropin’ Gov, with disdain.  Another poll tried to say the voters would vote for this POS again but no one believes that.  Speaking of the Empire State, a judge rules that the case, N.Y. v. Amazon will remain at the state level and not move up the chain to the federal level.   In other interesting “Killer” Cuomo news, N.Y. Attorney General Leticia James may be ‘reviewing’ the erstwhile governor’s autobiographical ‘novel’ of the great job he did during the Chinese Virus pandemic, the one in which, he consigned tens of thousands of New York’s elderly and ill to their deaths.
  72. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- The Texas House of Representatives okays a bill dropping permits to open-carry firearms in the state.  Speaking of the Lone Star State, the former Austin Police Department detective sought in the shooting deaths of three people yesterday has been scooped up in police custody.   Next, President Donald J. Trump advises decrepit Joe Biden NOT to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan on the symbolic date of September 11, 2021, the 20-year-anniversary of the Islamist attack on New York City, on the Pentagon, and on a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Will old drooling Joe Biden listen to the sage advice?  Most likely not. 
  73. 2021 Monday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III- Elsewhere, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is putting forth a bill demanding the expulsion of lunatic Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, over her visit to Minnesota over the weekend to encourage VIOLENCE no matter the outcome of the murder trial of Officer Derek Chauvin.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is standing by her fellow octogenarian by saying, “She did nothing wrong.”  Both of these imbeciles must be voted out of office or impeached and removed.   In the case of “Prune Face” Waters, she should be doing time prison.  (Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Maxine Waters singlehandedly may have caused a mistrial due to her careless words.’[xix]   In other news, as the deathwatch of Putin critic Alexei Navalny begins, Joe Biden begins uttering some incoherent words in defense of the imprisoned freedom fighter.
  74. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV- Congressman Steve Stivers, R-OH 15th congressional district is resigning his seat to head his state’s Chamber of Commerce.   Next, a Jewish coalition may expel the Zionists of America for them being critical of radical anti-Semite scum such as Congresswomen Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, by calling them out for their anti-Israel bigotry.  What did ZOA say wrong?   Next, Republican leaders are demanding a meeting with ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris so they can discuss the BORDER CRISIS, the one a word-slurring Joe Biden long claimed it wasn’t but now says it is and do something about it.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris has crisscrossed the country but has gone NOWHERE near the border since coming into office.  Speaking of the BORDER CRISIS, Joe Biden issued new rules to Customs and Border Patrol telling them ‘NO LONGER can they use the words ‘illegal alien’ and ‘assimilation’ when discussing the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS POURING ACROSS THE SOUTHERN BORDER.’  WTF?   Speaking of ILLEGALS, Joe Biden’s handlers pledge that fuddled old Joe is going to raise the numbers of REFUGEES accepted into the country but that his original goal of hundreds of thousands may not occur.   (Interesting note- late this afternoon, the White House began walking back Joe Biden’s mumbled statements about the ‘crisis’ on the southern border.  Maybe they’ll CANCEL JOE?).
  75. 2021 Monday J: INTERESTING HYPOCRISY OF THE DAY-  Facebook is now censoring criticism of Black Lives Matter skank Patrice Cullors who has purchased several million dollars’ worth of real estate using money donated to BLM by dimwits such as FB cofounder Dustin Moskovitz who gave $5 million to the Marxist organization.  We cannot have people calling out LIBERAL HYPOCRISY now can we and so the great social media platform won’t let anyone call them out on it.
  76. 2021 Monday K: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT- After the defense wrapped up its closing arguments in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, the jury now has the case and cities from Minneapolis to Chicago to Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California, to Portland, Oregon, are all preparing for out of control riots should he be acquitted on ALL charges.  Judge Peter Cahill says, ‘it will be an easy appeal what with Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters urging VIOLENCE on American society NO MATTER WHAT VERDICT THE JURY DELIVERS.  (Note- we have said this and will continue saying it, ‘we think Officer Chauvin is going to get off.  Completely.  The blame will rest on liberal Democrats.  Period.  We think that had not the liberals involved themselves, had not the city of Minneapolis paid George Floyd’s family in the week prior to the start of the trial, they may have gotten a just verdict whereas now- as with George Zimmerman, aka the “White Hispanic,” they won’t get the verdict they seek.  IF they do, Chauvin will beat it on appeal).
  77. 2021 Monday L: NOTABLE DEATH- Former Vice President Walter F. Mondale who served under President Jimmy Carter from January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981 died today in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the age of 93.  He also was the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 1984 with New York Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro, D-NY 9th congressional district as his running mate.  They were soundly defeated by President Ronald Reagan.  Bon voyage, Mr. Vice President.   In other notable news, we learn today that Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick did not die from having his head ‘stoved in with a fire extinguisher’ as multiple media sources proclaimed for months on end during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021 but from a combination of two strokes caused by chemical irritants sprayed in his face by Antifa ‘protesters.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The unstoppable rock band from England- UFO- released their next studio effort- “A Conspiracy of Stars”- on February 23, 2015.  Once again, the band featured the quintet of Phil Mogg (vocals), Vinnie Moore (all guitars), Paul Raymond (keyboards), Rob De Luca (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion).  As usual, the band was at top form and fans of the band were in awe of this effort.  Many of the bands that came out of the late 1960s are no longer active but UFO has never gone away nor have their various side projects and endeavors.  We encourage everyone to go out and seek this album out NOW, give it a good listen, and then add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy!

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

[iv] Nationalist China is FREE China, the true owners of mainland China.  Driven off the mainland by the Reds in 1948-49 to the island of Formosa, renamed Taiwan, these people held the seat in the United Nations now held by the communists.  Many believe it is high time we return to a Two-China Policy that would recognize both the Free and the communist governments would benefit the entire world.  Many also believe it is time to boot Red China out of the UN and welcome Taiwan back in, especially since the communists gave the world the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis.

[v] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

[vi] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of both Koss and Back Street Crawler when we did the previous batch of famed British bands.

[viii] We are hopeful we will present the music of the Band and of its individual members sometime in 2024-2025.  Great music by a superb band

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

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

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 579

98. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 08, 2021 UPDATE A:

DAY SEVENTY-NINE OF THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

Yom HaShoah

IF “Pro-China Joe” seeks support for his draconian gun laws, how about doing something about your gun-mishandling, (alleged) pedophile, drug-addled, Chi-Com-tainted Hunter first?  Otherwise, STFU!  

  • : JOE BIDEN NEWS- Joe Biden debuted executive actions this morning that he is taking to strip firearms away from the American people.  Most of them are feelgood measures for his whack-a-doodle base but even so, some of them have teeth- if anyone will obey them (which, we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have no intention of doing.  NO one is taking our firearms away, no one).  Next, Joe Biden nominated perhaps the worst person to become head of the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (and Explosives), David Chipman, the dimwit who transformed the debacle at Waco, Texas, into what it became by lying through his teeth about things that SUPPOSEDLY occurred there but which did not and which then led to the deaths of mostly women- many of them pregnant- and children.  This was one of the shining events that occurred during the Bill Clinton administration, overseen by Attorney-General Janet Reno.   Congressman Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district says that Chipman is the absolute worst person to head the ATF.
  • : BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE-  Texas Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, came out today and lit the Biden administration up for the appalling conditions in Border Patrol facilities holding tens of thousands of illegal alien, river-swimming, or fence-jumping invaders.  He condemns the Biden administration for its shocking lack of compassion and sensitivity and demands they close these facilities now which means these people should be loaded aboard empty airliners and dumped back in Guatemala.  Let THEM sort them out seeing as how they are a major starting point for this invasion.  Build the wall and deport them all, now.  Anyhow, Governor Abbott pointed out the human rights abuses such as rampant sexual assaults on women, children, and weaklings as well as shortages of food, medical supplies, clean water, and proper clothing and bedding.  IF these horrendous practices occurred under the Trump administration, President Trump would be visiting Old Sparky but under Joe Biden, “No problem, amigos, no problem”… Finally, people continue asking where the nation’s ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is.  She has been traveling around the country but nowhere near the border.  At least Cuban-born U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is visiting the border today.  Praise the Lord! 
  • : MASS SHOOTING AND CRIME NEWS-  We learned early today that in Rock Hill, S.C., former NFL player Phillip Adams shot and killed Dr. Robert Lesslie and his wife, Barbara Lesslie along with their two grandchildren- ages 5 and 9- in their home as well as two air conditioning technicians working outside their home.  One of the techs survived and called in for help and when police arrived, they found evidence that led them to the home of Adams’ parents where they encircled the home after getting his mother and father out of the home.  Adams then shot himself.  No one knows why he did what he did.  Later in the day, following Joe Biden’s mumbling stumbling bumbling announcement on various executive actions he is taking to strip guns away from the American people, a mass shooting occurred in Texas.  Like clockwork, in Bryan, Texas, a gunman entered the corporate offices of Kent Moore Cabinets and shot seven people, some of them critically, but none dead at the time of this reporting.  Police are purportedly chasing several suspects so we will provide updates as we learn them.
  • : FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS- The communist Chinese in Beijing warned their stooge- “Pro-China Joe” Biden- today that he had better not boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in their capital city.  We say, “F**k them!  Who do you think you are, you commie bastards?’  Next, the Biden administration announced that it is going to lift ALL sanctions on the crap-hole nation of Iran without seeking anything in return.  Good for you, Joe, good for you. Regarding the Chi-Coms, tech investor Peter Thiel says that ‘Bitcoin’ may very well be a financial tool the communists can use against the United States.  Moving on, France is postponing the French Open to May 30 over fears of COVID-19.  Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘U.S. policy on Russia is both dumb and ineffective.’  This comes after the Biden administration yesterday evening revived the Trump-Russia collusion scam and Russian interference in U.S. elections by announcing he is going to slam Russia with new sanctions for meddling and hacking.  Okay, Joe.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Always on the move, Michael Schenker formed a ‘new group,’ one known as Temple of Rock.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist from the Fatherland are bassist Pete Way (everyone knows the amazing Pete), Michael Voss (vocals), Herman Rarebell (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards).  The resulting effort produced “Temple of Rock,” which hit record store shelves on July 28, 2011.  Other musical friends and guests joined with the quintet to deliver a stunning, superb album that rocks like the house is on fire and no one can escape it.  We hope you will rush out and seek this one out NOW so you can add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

35. 1954 Thursday A: In northern Vietnam at the French base at Dien Bien Phu, incoming transport planes are beginning to experience 37 mm anti-aircraft fire. French pre-registered heavy artillery begin firing back while patrols go through the wire and out into the surrounding fields and forests seeking their foes. Yet, these are still the ‘quiet times,’ the French Union forces- a mix of French paratroopers, Foreign Legionnaires, Moroccan and Algerian colonial troops, Thai and Vietnamese troops, and West African Senegalese artillery men- believe they have the upper hand. Every night, the People’s Army continues building approach trenches to various remote outposts surrounding the main base and every day, the French troops fill them in.

Trump goes before the American people and gives a stately Oval Office address in which, he reassures the citizens of the country that the government at all levels is doing everything possible to protect them.  He suspends all flights from Continental Europe for 30 days as the United States continues finding ways to minimize our exposure.  Many believe it is time the Chinese stand up and admit what everyone knows them to have done and that is- following the U.S.-China trade deal- the release of the coronavirus around the world.  Sadly, Tom Hanks and his wife admit that while filming a movie on Elvis Presley in Australia- in Australia!- the pair caught the coronavirus.  Wow.  Finally, when many thought that Bernie Sanders was going to throw in the towel on his campaign, he goes before the mics and proclaims he is going to fight all the way to Milwaukee.  Double wow.
  63. 2021 Thursday: Day 51 of the Biden Regime, how much more can the United States take of this senile president and his unseen handlers?  We expect they are in league with the Chi-Coms and as such are actively selling out the country.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

EMI released another ‘best of’ compilation for the British rock band, UFO, on October 13, 2002, the acclaimed “The Best of UFO: Gold Collection.”  This excellent effort contains 10 of the band’s best songs running the gamut from 1976 through 1980.  You have a collection of veteran UFO members here which provides the listener with the crème de la crème of this lesser-known but amazingly great British rock band.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your listening day.  We think you will be extremely glad that you did…

ENDNOTES:


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

[ii] We promoted the music of New York City’s very own Vanilla Fudge, beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  You definitely will want to check them out so please, do so now.  At the time, we overlooked the music of Cactus which we hope to promote one of these days.  Remain vigilant for the day when we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both Emerson, Lake & Palmer along with the Nice at some point soon.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.  Thank you.
