  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.

42. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2022

64. 2021 Thursday A: Impeach #45 II continues in the U.S. Senate. It appears that Democrats prosecuting the FORMER president believe that if they continue hammering the same points over and over and over and over that somehow, it is going to drive an increasing number of inattentive GOP senators to vote to convict. Not so.

  62. 2020 Tuesday: The New Hampshire primary occurs on this date, and it appears that the battle is between Princess Pete and Commie Bernie with the Schnoz, Amy Klobuchar hanging in third place although no one knows for sure at this time.  Joe Biden, however, has already bolted for South Carolina, demonstrating he knows he is going to lose here, too.  Meanwhile, an audio tape of Mike Bloomberg speaking from six years ago about busting minorities and sending them to jail for pot possession hits the scene.  My, my, my! Update: with 78% of the vote in, Fox News Channel calls it thus: Sen. Bernie Sanders: 25.7%; Pete Buttigieg: 24.4%; Amy Klobuchar: 19.9%; Elizabeth Warren: 9.4%; Joe Biden: 8.4%; Tom Steyer: 3.6%; Tulsi Gabbard: 3.2%; Andrew Yang: 2.9%; Michael Bennett and Deval Patrick: 0. Andrew Yang was the first to toss in the towel within moments followed by Michael Bennett within the first 30 minutes;  Tom Steyer tossed in the towel then pulled it back, why?  No one knows…Elsewhere, the death toll from the Chinese Virus in communist China has hit 1,000 fatalities what with 103 in a single day in Hubei Province.  A year later, this will be NOTHING…
  63. 2021 Thursday: DAY 23 OF THE BIDEN REGIME. Volkswagen is going to team up with Microsoft to create the necessary software with which to create self-driving cars.   Speaking of automobile issues, Texas authorities are cleaning up a massive pileup of cars and trucks on an icy stretch of the highway.  The pileup occurred near Fort Worth, Texas.  Elsewhere, Best Buy announces it’s going to lay off an undisclosed number of its employees in brick-and-mortar stores due to the Chi-Com Virus having driven business more online than in person.  Meanwhile, 793,000 Americans file for initial jobless benefits, down 19,000 from the week before.  Still not good, however.  Finally, thanks to the people behind Joe Biden, gas prices have gone up 18-percent as the War on Domestic Energy Production gets underway.  Thank you, “Chi-Com Joe.”
  64. 2021 Thursday A: Impeach #45 II continues in the U.S. Senate. It appears that Democrats prosecuting the FORMER president believe that if they continue hammering the same points over and over and over and over that somehow, it is going to drive an increasing number of inattentive GOP senators to vote to convict.  Not so.  Chef Lilah said in her Twitter feed today that Congressman Jamie Raskin’s own daddy avoided doing a stretch in federal prison over his collusion with Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers back in the 1970s.  She guesses what was good for daddy is not good for President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, Trump adviser Jason Miller shares his confidence that Trump’s attorneys can dismantle the Democrats’ BS arguments with ease.   In the same vein, Senator Lindsey Graham says he believes more GOP senators are going to vote to acquit after hearing the sobbing testimony of Democrat prosecutors such as mob boss David Cicilline, the blubbering Jamie Raskin, and that POS of fecal matter, Teddy Lieu.  Add to that the Chi-Com spy Eric Swalwell and one can see the rogue’s gallery of dimwits on display.  Doesn’t say much about the people who elect these bedbugs to office now does it.
  65. 2021 Thursday B: In Portland, Oregon, local cops say they were successful in driving away the left-wing Antifa and BLM mobs from burning down their very own police union headquarters. Elsewhere, Fox News Channel files suit to dismiss the bogus lawsuit launched against the network by the election-stealing software company (allegedly) Smartmatic.  We expect it to be successful and that Smartmatic will lose.  Meanwhile, Telegram becomes the most popular downloaded social media app.  Next, a $4.5 million lawsuit has just dropped on the head of Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.  Owners of the Town Talk Diner and Gastro Pub in Minneapolis filed suit after mobs attacked their business night after night and burned it down during the summertime riots in which, Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs targeted their business and NO Minneapolis Police Department officers ever showed up to protect it.  We expect loads more lawsuits are going to drop atop these left-wing mayors and governors.  Finally, the New York Stock Exchange announces that if Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s tax plan goes into effect, they will be leaving the Empire State.  Good for you!
  66. 2021 Thursday C: It appears that Cancel Culture is trying to erase Western Tradition so that it can supplant it with Marxism. We won’t allow that to happen.  Elsewhere, a recent study into the reporting of statistics related the Chinese Virus are entirely wrong.  The study suggests that the fatality numbers connected to the Beijing Bug include BOTH those who died FROM the virus and those who died WITH the virus.  If statistics were honest, the numbers would fall from the nearly 2,400,000 deaths to a true figure of 35,000 deaths.  However, since the virus serves left-wing political purposes, the numbers are inflated and remain inflated.    Meanwhile, federal health authorities are warning medical workers to be on the lookout for ersatz N-95 masks.  Finally, Tokyo Olympics boss Yoshiro Mori finds himself forced to resign over a comment he made in which, he said, ‘women talk too much.’  Gee, no one can exercise an opinion anymore.  Wah, wah, wah!
  67. 2021 Thursday D: Tom Fitton shares information numerous Chi-Com-loving professors in the United States are receiving funding for various research projects and then transferring both the research and American tax dollars back to the communists in Beijing. Under the Trump administration, many of these Chi-Com sleepers were rooted and booted whereas now, under the ‘Joe Biden administration,’ Chi-Coms ain’t going nowhere.  Speaking of this, a mumbling Joe Biden now admits that yes indeed, the Chinese ARE going to eat our lunches.’  Add to that the fact that since the teachers unions have bullied Chi-Com Joe, the Biden administration is now going to rely on whatever the CDC says about whether schools can reopen or not.  NOT GOOD, Joe, people are becoming angrier by the moment.  Elsewhere, illegal alien border crossings into the U.S. are more than double one year ago.  We keep saying, “Lay in minefields!” 
  68. 2021 Thursday H: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 107,458,667 confirmed cases, +291,882, 2,357,475, confirmed deaths, +9,054, and 60,136,468 confirmed recoveries, +228,082. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,539,217 confirmed cases, up 53,415 from yesterday’s reporting, 473,223 confirmed deaths, DOWN 811 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE- in the White House 22 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 143,828 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  69. 2021 Thursday 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: 3,449,934 confirmed cases, 45,456 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,584 confirmed cases, 423 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 328,264 confirmed cases, 4,675 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Tennessee: currently, they have 752,033 confirmed cases, 10,812 confirmed deaths, and 716,136 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 709,729 confirmed cases, 5,257 confirmed deaths, and 635,960 confirmed recoveries.    For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Italy: currently, they have 2,668,266 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 92,338 confirmed deaths, and 2,165,817 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  Either that or he’s too stupid to be governor, perhaps his lower IQ brother Chris could do the job?
  70. 2021 Thursday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,430.70, DOWN 7.10 points (-0.023%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,025.77, UP 53.24 points (+0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,916.38, UP 6.50 points (+0.17%).  The price of GOLD is $1,826.70 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.05 per troy ounce, -0.00 (-0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,243.00 per troy oz, -4.00 (-0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $3.78 per pound, +0.01 (+0.23%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,353.50 per troy oz, +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $57.95 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.50%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 1,400.00 Myanmar Kyat.
  71. 2021 Thursday K: After the Biden administration suggested something that extremely sounds Stalinist, namely prohibiting travel to Florida because Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, won’t kotow to the new oppressive administration. Governor DeSantis says it’s a load of crap seeing as how the Biden administration could give a hoot about hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens flooding the country whom NO one is monitoring for the Chinese Virus. Florida has remained open from the earliest days of the Wuhan Flu and its cases are not as bad as say, California and New York.  Still, Bill Gates and Dr. Tony “Three Masks and Googles” Fauci are conspiring to find ways to topple DeSantis at best or to force him in line at worst.   Look for other Stalinist measures to follow suit.  Meanwhile, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene introduces a bill with which to prohibit federal funds being used for gun control measures.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album on June 23, 2015, the critically acclaimed “Still.”  Once a guitar warrior, always a guitar warrior, Thompson knows how to crank ‘em out and this one is as good as it gets.  There is a ‘slim version’ and a ‘deluxe version,’ which is why we encourage everyone to get the deluxe as who does not enjoy additional tunes, right?  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but his current band consisting of Taras Prodaniuk (bass and vocals), Michael Jerome (drums and vocals), Jim Elkington (guitars, piano), Jeff Tweedy (numerous instruments, and vocals), and several others- including three backing vocalists- to round out the sound.  Fans love this album just as we do which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whatever other site you do for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did, of that, we are certain.  Enjoy.

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

[ii] Not sure if we will ever get to the music of Whitney Houston but one day, we sure as heck hope that we do.

[iii] We are not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary Dave Clark Five but we hope to do so sometime within the next 4-5 years.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

SSS. 2020 Friday F: Oregon Governor Kate Brown- when asked WHY she won’t send the Oregon National Guard into Portland, Oregon, to stop what will be soon 100 nights of unrest, she told a reporter that the ‘Guard is not trained in law-enforcement matters.’ In other words, rioters, and looters, continue doing what you are doing because NO one is going to stop you from running amok.

  61. 2016 Sunday:  In a ceremony at the Vatican, Pope Francis canonizes Mother Teresa. 
  62. 2017 Monday: Texas emergency management officials said at least 60 deaths were attributed to Hurricane Harvey.   Meanwhile, President Donald J.

  65. 2020 Friday:  Today’s attempt to bring down President Donald J. Trump comes to us from an article in The Atlantic magazine in which in 2018, the president called fallen U.S. soldiers at a U.S. military cemetery “losers and suckers.”  Four unnamed sources claim this is so just as they contend that President Trump also ‘didn’t think that wounded U.S. soldiers should participate in military parades.’  Most people believe that Generals John Kelly and “Mad Dog” Mattis are two of the sources but the sources say they won’t come forward out of fear of ‘angry Tweets.’  Uh, okay.
  66. 2020 Friday A: When federal agents go to arrest the Antifa POS who murdered Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of Patriot Prayer, a conservative peace group in Portland, Oregon, last weekend, the perp- Michael Reinoehl drew a handgun and was shot dead.  Good riddance.  Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Speaker Nancy Pelosi finds herself under verbal assault as protesters go after her for violating her own rules about wearing face masks and not going to hairdressers for indoor appointments.  The old bat continues claiming ‘I was set up.’  We hope that AOC-backed Shahid Buttar cleans your clock on November 03.
  67. 2020 Friday B: In the Oval Office today, the president of Serbia- Aleksandar Vučić and the prime minister of Kosovo- Avdullah Hoti- sign an economic peace deal before the watchful gaze of President Donald J. Trump which will benefit both nations.  In so doing, Kosovo- a largely Muslim country- agrees to recognize Israel and Serbia says it will move its embassy to Jerusalem.  Fantastic!   Speaking of Trump, his approval ratings have climbed back to 52-percent, what they were before the Yellow Flu hit the U.S. Elsewhere, Hilton Hotels says it is going to close its mega-hotel in New York’s Times Square permanently.  The state and city continue losing businesses thanks to the mismanagement of Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill Di Blasio. 
  68. 2020 Friday C: As economic news continues being positive for August, we learn that 1.37 million new jobs were created and that the jobless rate fell to 8.4-percent.  Democrats continue whining and screeching that Trump is destroying the economy while “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues expanding on his theme he mentioned yesterday: ‘I can’t tell you my tax plan because “they’ll shoot me.”  Your tax plan’s that bad Joe?  Maybe you shouldn’t win in November!  Elsewhere, as of publication time, stocks continue falling after dropping 807 points on Thursday.
  69. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 26,398,466 confirmed cases, +323,857, 870,477, confirmed deaths, +6,324, and 17,565,712 confirmed recoveries, +228,328.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,283,209 confirmed cases, up 63,148 from yesterday’s reporting, 190,058 confirmed deaths, UP 1,204, and 3,373,378 confirmed recoveries, UP 84,857.  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: 727,072 confirmed cases, 13,497 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 9,202 confirmed cases, 79 confirmed deaths, and 2,778 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 79,121 confirmed cases, 2,034 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Oklahoma- currently, they have 62,040 confirmed cases, 846 confirmed deaths, and 5,213 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Kevin Stitt for your state’s honesty in this regard.
  70. 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,133.31, DOWN 159.42 points (-0.56%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,313.13, DOWN 114.97 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,426.96, DOWN 28.10 points (-0.81%).  Price of GOLD: $1,940.90 per troy oz., +6.60 (+0.34%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.12 per troy oz., +0.403 (+1.51%).  Price of PLATINUM: $906.90 per troy oz., +8.70 (+0.97%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,304.00 per troy oz., +3.00 (+0.13%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.07 per #, +0.0125 (+0.41%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.51, -0.26 (-0.65%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.84 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  71. 2020 Friday F: Oregon Governor Kate Brown- when asked WHY she won’t send the Oregon National Guard into Portland, Oregon, to stop what will be soon 100 nights of unrest, she told a reporter that the ‘Guard is not trained in law-enforcement matters.’  In other words, rioters, and looters, continue doing what you are doing because NO one is going to stop you from running amok.  Elsewhere, we learn that the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon’s port cost the city $3.2 billion, left 300,000 people homeless and claimed the lives of 191.  Although it’s not clear as to what set off the ammonium nitrate or why it had been stored in warehouses lining the port for what is said to be ‘years,’ we suspect that Hezbollah and its leader Hassan Nasrallah were keeping it there for use in attacks on neighboring Israel.  It is time a drone takes out Mr. Nasrallah as he is the next ranking terrorist in the world after Abu Bakr al-Baghdad and Gen. Qassim Soleimani.  Light ‘em up!
  72. 2021 Saturday: It’s Labor Day weekend- let’s hope the Chinese are NOT invading Taiwan this weekend…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fans of Jethro Tull love guitarist Martin Barre because he continues the great band’s music with his own touches as he continues plowing ahead.  His new album, “Roads Less Travelled,” came out on August 09, 2018, and is a delightful addition to both his solo repertoire and to Jethro Tull’s interconnected discography.  The band features Mr. Barre (guitars, mandolins, banjos, flutes, and keyboards), Dan Crisp (guitars and vocals), Darby Todd (drums and percussion), Alan Thompson (bass, vocals), and 2-3 others.  We love the man, his band, and his music so folks, please seek this one out, give it a good listen, and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  At the time, we damned sure should have promoted the music of its various members such as Roger “Jim” McGuinn, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark, David Crosby (along with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and their associated catalog of group and solo endeavors), as well as later Byrds such as Gene Parsons and Skip Battin among others.  We hope to do so one day and hope that you will indulge us when we do.

[ii] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[iii] 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.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too. 

[iv] We are not sure as to when we will promote the music of the Pretenders but when we do, you will be the first to know so rejoice.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] The father of Mitt Romney who plagues our modern times with his RINO BS.

[viii] Sadly, we were not as attuned to the sharing of interconnected bands and musicians when we promoted Santana years ago but we do hope we will be able to promote the music of Journey at some point in the nest 10-12 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, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

When Donald Trump wins re-election, how about in the second term, he fulfills the promise of erasing the ‘lines’ around the states so every health care insurer could compete and offer a vast variety of plans, affordable to all?
