124. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 04, 2021

LL. 1954 Tuesday A: The attempt to reach Dien Bien Phu by French Union forces fighting from the south in Operation Condor had stalled. A contingency plan- Operation Albatross had already been discussed, a breakout of the 2,000-3,000 fittest men from Dien Bien Phu and Isabelle, but sadly for the garrison, it was slated to May 15 when additional air support and artillery could provide some semblance of aid as to help those breaking out heading to the south. Problem was the troops were unclear as to whether they could sustain the fight until then.

  56. 2013 Saturday: American boxer Floyd Mayweather defeats Robert Guerrero and retains his WBC Welterweight title in a unanimous decision.  Meanwhile, in Kandahar, Afghanistan, a roadside bomb kills 5 U.S. soldiers and wounds several others.  F**king savages.  Elsewhere, in the Syrian town of Baniyas, government troops kill 77 civilians and wound quite a few others.
  57. 2014 Sunday: According to Brainy History, union backers and California legislators are seeking to raise the state’s minimum wage to $13 per hour; Governor Jerry Brown ratified a law only 8 months ago to raise the wage to $10 an hour by 2016.  Meanwhile, eight acrobats were injured, most of them seriously, when a carabiner clip broke during an aerial hair-hanging stunt, sending the women plummeting to the ground during a Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus show in Providence, Rhode Island.

Gavin Newsom?  Colleagues up in Washington state report 15,462 confirmed cases what with confirmed deaths at 841 and- like California- NO recovery confirmation numbers.  Gov. Jay Inslee, what are YOU hiding (asks Chef Vladimir?)
  64. 2021 Tuesday: Please stick around to discover the news of the day…

. Meanwhile in World War II, the Soviets continue their pincer movement around Berlin as one army begins fighting into the suburbs from the South while from the east, another is pummeling its way into the city from that direction. Germans are still able to enter and exit the city at this time as the Soviets have not yet sealed the city off on all sides. Hitler has a chance to fly out but won’t take it- or so we believe.

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Peter Vivian Daniel; U.S. Secretary of Defense Louis A. Johnson; Badfinger featuring Pete Ham, Blondie featuring Nigel Harrison, Creedence Clearwater Revival featuring Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, “Diamond Dogs” by David Bowie, and the Electric Prunes featuring Preston Ritter:

  7. 1792 Tuesday: Captain Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle composed the national anthem of France, “La Marseillaise,” on this date.
  8. 1800 Thursday: Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress and President John Adams signed it into being, which appropriates $5,000 to purchase “such books as may be necessary for use of Congress.”

  12. 1877 Tuesday: In defense of Romania, Russia declares war on the Ottoman Empire.  Meanwhile, the last Federal occupation troops withdraw from the South, departing through New Orleans, Louisiana, for home.  This would open the door to horrendous actions by Southern Democrats and their allies, the Ku Klux Klan.  Every Black American needs to recall who the REAL villains in their mistreatment were and have been: the two groups above are responsible for their persecution and for Jim Crow/Segregation laws.
  13. 1884 Thursday: In Atlanta, Georgia, the Black National Physicians Organization organizes.
  14. 1889 Wednesday: Thomas Edison and his business advisors organized the Edison General Electric Company.

  18. 1915 Saturday: What’s regarded as the start of the Armenian Genocide began as the Ottoman Empire rounded up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople.  Although persecutions against Christians had been ongoing since Turkey joined the Central Powers- German Empire, Austro-Hungary, and Bulgaria- they were going to step up the pressure, fearful that they would have enemies in their rear areas.  Elsewhere, on the Western Front, the Second Battle of Ypres continues as Germans continue making gains.  On the Eastern Front, the Austro-Hungarians are making headway in the western Ukraine against the Russian bear.
  19. 1916 Monday: Some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Uprising by seizing several key sites in Dublin; however, the British crushed it almost a week later.   The Irish felt that with the British occupiers suffering heavy losses in World War I, this might be a grand opportunity to drive them out of the Emerald Isle.

  22. 1940 Wednesday: German forces in Norway continue solidifying their positions as reinforcements arrive with which to counter the Brits who are trying to keep Norway free and independent.  However, preparations for the invasion of France continue as Germans continue building their troop strength up, much of it in the heavily wooded Ardennes Forest.
  23. 1941 Thursday: Resistance in Greece is dying as the Germans and their allied Axis troops continue pushing Greek and British defenders back to the southern portion of the country.  In Yugoslavia, resistance is also sputtering to an end.  Elsewhere, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt orders military leaders to keep track of all German Kriegsmarine movements so the information can be forwarded to the British government, on the sly of course, as the U.S. is not yet in the war.
  24. 1942 Friday: The Luftwaffe steps up its attacks against British heritage sites as heavy bombers target sites up and down the eastern coast of Great Britain.  The British are determined to withstand the assault while the Germans are doing their best to bomb them into submission.
  25. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews.  The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.  In response, the Germans begin setting buildings on fire.  However, the defenders in these buildings either fight to the death or retreat through pre-cut holes in walls or into the sewers to fight another day.
  26. 1944 Monday: The first B-29 arrived in Nationalist China, flying ‘over the hump’ of the Himalayas.  Elsewhere, now that Italy is on the Allied side, their warplanes are flying sorties against their former German allies in the Aegean Sea attacking garrisons holding islands and ports.   The Germans respond with violence against Italian prisoners.
  27. 1945 Tuesday: Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, future drummer of both Creedence Clearwater Revival[i] and Creedence Clearwater Revisited, was born in Palo Alto, California, on this date in history.  Meanwhile in World War II, the Soviets continue their pincer movement around Berlin as one army begins fighting into the suburbs from the South while from the east, another is pummeling its way into the city from that direction.  Germans are still able to enter and exit the city at this time as the Soviets have not yet sealed the city off on all sides.  Hitler has a chance to fly out but won’t take it- or so we believe.

  29. 1951 Tuesday: Nigel Harrison—future bassist with the New York rock band, Blondie[iii] (1978-82 / 1997)—is born in Stockport, Cheshire, England, on this date.

  32. 1954 Saturday: After the heavy fighting on and around Huguette 6 last night and early this morning, French commanders in Dien Bien Phu understand that they no longer have the manpower on hand to launch major counterattacks against their communist opponents.  Losses last night were fierce with the loss of several units whose survivors were cobbled together into a new unit.   According to author Martin Windrow, morale was once again flagging on both sides as French defenders had been going with little sleep, few hot meals, and hardly any baths now for 45 days while the communists were scraping up reserves from across the countryside and trying to reinvigorate them for the third phase of the battle.  Casualties were horrendous for both sides. 
  33. 1961 Monday: Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles Dodgers struck out 18 batters, becoming the first major-league pitcher to do so on two separate occasions.  Elsewhere, President John F. Kennedy accepted ‘sole responsibility’ for the disaster HE set in motion at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba.  He committed Cuban exiles to action to overthrow Fidel Castro and then in their hour of need, he abandoned them to death or to long prison terms in Cuban prisons.  
  34. 1962 Tuesday: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology achieved the first satellite relay of a television signal, using NASA’s Echo 1 balloon satellite to bounce a video image from Camp Parks, California, to Westford, Massachusetts.

Bush broke it; he now owns it.
  51. 2005 Sunday: Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger undergoes inauguration as the 265th pope of the Roman Catholic Church, taking the papal name of Benedict XVI.   Meanwhile, in Kuwait, 7,000 angry Bengali workers storm the Bangladeshi embassy demanding redress for unpaid wages.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia arrest 40 Pakistani Christians brazenly practicing their faith in Riyadh.  NOT good, folks, not good…for them.

  54. 2008 Thursday: Following the recent destruction of a nuclear facility in Syria by the Israelis, the United States reports that North Korean technicians helped the Syrians build the reactor.  Good thing the Israelis blew it up.  Meanwhile, following Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s BIG WIN in Pennsylvania this past Tuesday, she has raked in $10 million in donations.  Both she and her opponent, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, are focusing their attentions on Indiana, the next big state in the primary battles.  Elsewhere, the United Nations is crying that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing them from getting aid to the Palestinians.
  55. 2009 Friday: Not to be outdone by terrorists in Iraq yesterday, slavering jihadis carry out yet another suicide bombing in Baghdad, killing at least 80 people and wounding or crippling another 125.  Time to start lighting up the terrorists, we say, “Use neutron bombs, send these scumbags straight to hell.”  Elsewhere, North Korea plans to try two Current TV journalists they claim were on the soil but evidence shows they were on the Chinese side of the Yalu River and were kidnapped by the North Koreans.  WTF?

  58. 2012 Tuesday: The Obama-controlled Pentagon is creating a new intelligence service, the Defense Clandestine Service that will (supposedly) investigate threats to U.S. national interests coming from nations such as North Korea, the Chi-Coms, and Iran.  Good.  Just what we need.  Another flipping spy agency in the hands of Barack Hussein Obama.  Meanwhile, Al-Jazeera reports that the case against imprisoned Pfc. Bradley Manning must be thrown out due to prosecutorial misconduct.
  59. 2013 Wednesday: Americans learn the FBI and CIA had previous intelligence from Russia warning U.S. intelligence agencies about Tamerlane Tsarnaev’s extremist connections before the Boston Marathon bombings.   Meanwhile, in Manchester, Illinois, a mass shooting occurs leaving five dead and another one or two injured.  As police track down the shooter and engage, the gunman is killed.
  60. 2014 Thursday:  The Federal Communications Commission moves away from the idea of net neutrality, in which all Internet users can equally access and view content; the agency instead proposes to allow large companies to pay Internet service providers for access to faster streaming “lanes.”  Meanwhile, it sounds like President Barack Hussein Obama, aka the Bamster, listened to us yesterday.  He is blasting Russian dictator Vladimir Putin for waging a war of aggression in the Ukraine and is threatening additional sanctions on Moscow.
  61. 2015 Friday: As the civil war continues raging in Yemen, UNICEF reports that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of children have been slain, wounded, or maimed for life in the savage fighting there.  Iran is meddling in this war, stirring up trouble for the Saudis and the rest of the Sunni world.  They believe that if they can bring Shias to power in Yemen, they will have the Kingdom nearly surrounded.
  62. 2016 Sunday: With the U.S. silent about the upcoming joint military exercises with South Korea, North Korea moves up 300 ballistic missile launchers near the demilitarized zone on the chance they may have to go to war with both the U.S. and their southern neighbors.  Speaking of President Obama, he says the U.S. won’t be deploying ground troops to Syria and sadly, he believes the last nine months of his time in office will not see ISIS defeated.  (Note- because YOU never tried, Bamster).
  63. 2017 Monday: Arkansas puts their thumb in the eyes of the leftists as it becomes the first state to execute NOT one murderer but two on the same day, something that has not occurred since 2000.  Convicted murderers Jack Jones Jr. and Marcel Williams meet their Maker via lethal injection.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump hosts his first state dinner for visiting French President Emanuel Macron.  Elsewhere, according to IFPI, streaming music service sales overtake that of CDs, LPs, and tapes.  Such a shame but young people are extremely unintelligent when it comes to sound quality.  Elsewhere, Thailand raises its hand and suggests that it would like to hold the upcoming summit between the United States and North Korea.
  65. 2019 Wednesday: “Brave Leader” Kim Jong Un arrives in Vladivostok, Russia, aboard his armored private train for his first meetings with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.  The talks will begin tomorrow.  Speaking of the ‘Brave Leader,’ four of his foreign ministry officials underwent execution over his failed second summit with President Donald J. Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, back in February.  Accused of handing over sensitive information to the Americans, these unlucky four were lucky enough that all they faced was the firing squad and not some bizarre other form of execution dreamed up by Chairman Kim Jong Un.   
  66. 2020 Friday: As of 22:00 hours, the current number of confirmed COVID-19 cases around the world stands at 2,790,986; the current number of confirmed deaths worldwide sits at 195,920 but the confirmed recoveries sit at 781,382.  Sadly- thank you, communist China- the United States rapidly is approaching one million confirmed cases as this evening, we find 924,510 Wuhan Virus cases in the U.S.  Currently, we have 52,296 confirmed fatalities but 100,795 confirmed recoveries.   As for our People’s Republic of China ‘amigos,’ these scumbags claim (same every day) 88,423 confirmed cases with the same number of dead- 4,632 and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Everyone understands communists always lie and so they are.  As for the U.S. Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes at 23,775.27, up 260.01 (1.11%); the NASDAQ closes 8,634.52, UP 139.77 (1.65%), and the S & P 500 ends at 2,836.74, UP 38.94 (1.39%).  The U.S. is and will recover and the PRC will pay an exorbitant price for the perfidy they have committed against the world.
  67. 2021 Saturday: Stick around and find out what’s going on…

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of the Electric Prunes within the next 5-10 years.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iv] We should have shot down this POS satellite.

[v] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[vi] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

BB. 1942 Friday: On the eighth day of the Battle of El Alamein in North Africa, fresh Australian troops assault the Afrika Korps defenses. On the Eastern Front, the bloodbath in Stalingrad continues. General Zhukov on the eastern side of the Volga River continues funneling just enough reinforcements to General Chuikov in the city to keep the Germans to continue committing more and more troops into the fray while ignoring their supply lines and their Axis allies thin lines north and south of the city. The Russians are waiting for a freeze that when it happens will enable the tanks to have mobility of movement when the counteroffensive begins.

  57. 2015 Friday: The Obama administration announces it will send U.S. ground troops to fight ISIS in Syria.  Had the administration kept troops in Iraq instead of pulling them out posthaste and leaving all our military equipment there, ISIS would indeed have been the “JV team” that Obama labeled it as.
  58. 2016 Sunday: FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey[viii] reopens the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s ‘missing emails’ approximately one week out from Election Day.  Everyone is curious as to why this corrupt POS would do such a thing, especially the Clinton campaign.   Elsewhere, Saudi-led coalition aircraft attack Houthi rebels in Yemen killing at least 60 of the scumbags.  Keep killing them.  Meanwhile, in Game 5 of the World Series, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians by a score of 3-2.

  60. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump says he is looking at ways of ending ‘birthright citizenship’ in the U.S. where ANYONE born in the country- regardless of citizenship or immigration status (meaning ILLEGAL ALIENS) automatically become U.S. citizens.  Friends, this should have happened decades ago as we have a national industry by which illegals cross our borders and foal their calves.  This must stop NOW.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Across the state of California, massive wildfires continue burning down vast stretches of the state.  Flames are threatening the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library as fire crews struggle to contain them.  More than 30,000 people have had to flee their homes.  Liberals screech about “CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!  WE ONLY HAVE 2-3 YEARS BEFORE THE PLANET DIES.”  Yet, north of Washington state and south of California into Mexico, NO fires blaze away.  Conservatives say, “Let’s do proper forest management and water conservation.”  Plain and simple.  Elsewhere, in a decisive Game 7 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Houston, winning their first championship and also becoming the first team to win four road games.  They lost all three at home in Washington, D.C.   The Willie Mays Most Valuable Player Award goes to pitcher Stephen Strasburg for his two winning performances but especially his Game 6 performance pitching into the 8th inning.   Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, 50 youthful climate change activists (alarmists) stage a sit-in at House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s office.  Stop wasting your time, kids, the speaker cares nothing about you.  
  62. 2020 Friday: Former Green Bay Packers quarterback and Super Bowl champion Brett Favre endorses President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, we learn that 25 legislators are pressuring Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pack the U.S. Supreme Court as soon as the Dems regain control of the U.S. Senate which they anticipate doing soon.  Moving on, Hostess Twinkie Don Lemon on CNN calls Trump supporters ‘drug addicts,’ that he has to cut many people lose and until they hit rock bottom and ask for help, he wants nothing to do with them.  Wow.  Business Insider reports that legions of journalists are donating to Democratic candidates, something media organizations used to discourage but nowadays, seemingly promote.
  63. 2020 Friday A: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says that Wall Street donations to “Pro-China Joe” Biden are ‘befuddling.’  Biden plans on taxing Wall Street banks out of existence with the appointment of Sen. Liz Warren, D-Massachusetts, to Treasury secretary.  That woman wants to dish out a whole lotta payback.  Elsewhere, in Minnesota, a federal appeals court upends the state’s plan on extending mail-in voting and registration times.  Down in Florida, early voting sites close down due to spikes in COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, the “Baby Evita,” AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (real name: Sandy Cortez), a day after appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in a $14,000 wardrobe ensemble that drove some Republicans to point out the hypocrisy exhibited by the socialist skank leads her to say to them, “Drink some water and don’t be a racist.”  Uh, okay.  We hope you lose on Tuesday. 
  64. 2020 Friday B: President Donald J. Trump is stumping the campaign trail holding 14 rallies in 3 days.  Meanwhile, decrepit old “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to states that should be locks for him because they are leaning towards Trump.  Going to be a hot and heavy finish.  Meanwhile, RNC chairperson Ronna McDaniel says Republicans are winning the early voting turnout as GOPPERS are flocking to the polls expecting riots, assaults, and even homicide on Election Day in many parts of the country.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 45,466,721 confirmed cases, +561,201, 1,186,913, confirmed deaths, +7,702, and 30,583,602 confirmed recoveries, +380,131.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,129,855 confirmed cases, up 86,485 from yesterday’s reporting, 233,117 confirmed deaths, UP 923, and 5,531,311 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,728.  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: 928,240 confirmed cases, 17,581 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,046 confirmed cases, 216 confirmed deaths, and 11,682 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 110,777 confirmed cases, 2,463 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 308,840 confirmed cases, 2,329 confirmed deaths, and 290,130 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 941,851 confirmed cases, 18,373 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries- por que?
  66. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,501.60, DOWN 157.51 points (-0.59%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,911.59, DOWN 274.00 points (-2.45%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,269.96, DOWN 40.15 points (-1.21%).  Price of GOLD: $1,878.80 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.72 per troy oz., +0.069 (+0.29%).  Price of PLATINUM: $847.00 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.17%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,217.20 per troy oz., +18.70 (+0.85%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.05 per #, +0.003 (+0.10%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $35.72, -0.07 (-0.20%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.69 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.73 Afghan afghani.
  67. 2020 Friday E: A Connecticut judge says that Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy’s widow, Ethel, will not face another trial after spending years in prison for the murder of Martha Moxley, decades ago.  Controversy has forever swirled around this case as many believe that since he is a relative of the legendary Kennedy Family, that he was unfairly targeted for the murder of the 15-year-old Moxley at one of the family’s seaside residences back in 1975.  Some suspect that the so-called “Lion of the Senate”- Senator Teddy Kennedy- might have had a hand in it and Skakel paid the price.  The prosecutor says the case cannot be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt and so Skakel will emerge a free man after 45 years in the slammer.  Good for you. 
  68. 2020 Friday F: Tens of thousands of members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ are protesting in streets across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia protesting France’s crackdown on Muslim extremists following the murders of three women- one beheaded- in the Basilica of Notre Dame in Nice.  France through stupid policies that have allowed in armies of people who will never become ‘French’ has led to them going berserk whenever they perceive someone has criticized their backward faith.  Look, undergo a flipping reformation already and join the modern world.  Congratulations, France, for doing what must be done.
  69. 2020 Friday G: Texas voters have cast more than 9 million early votes which is more than the entirety of the votes cast in the Lone Star State back in 2016.  The Democrats are doing everything possible to flip Texas from RED to BLUE using any means necessary.  Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants the U.S. Treasury secretary’s gig when “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins on November 3, while crackpot Senator Bernie Sanders wants to be the Labor secretary.  Failed loser Beto O’Rourke wants to be the ‘gun-grabber czar’ while Congresswoman Sandy Cortez wants to be the head of the Climate Change Bureau so she can take away the rights of the American people.   Speaking of the upper crust, Lori Loughlin, best-known for the old show, “Full House,” reported to a federal prison near Dublin, California, to begin her two-month stint for having bribed their daughters into USC.  When she’s out, hubby Mosimmo Giannulli, will report to the federal pen to do his five-month stint.  Poor bastard paid half-a-million bucks to get their daughters into the University of Southern California by having them pose as FAKE ROWERS.  Wow.
  70. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions #1603 with a jackpot of $118 million on the line: 14, 19, 34, 39, 59 and Mega 11.  The highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $16,660.
  71. 2020 Friday I: As Election Day draws near, we know the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are working hard to steal this election from the American people.  We hope you will stick around for updates on the Chi-Vi as well as whatever we uncover the Beijing bullies and their running dog patsies are up to…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra released their next studio album, “Alone in the Universe” on November 13, 2015.  Jeff Lynne performs most of the instruments with a few extra musicians adding additional flavor.  Critics reviewed the album favorably and fans were excited that the group was back in some semblance of being.  Say what you will, bands that began back in the late 1960s or early 1970s and then broke up and reformed are never as exciting as they were in their heyday but hey!  Lifelong fans tend to revel when ANY newer music appears which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whomever else you do for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this one simple maxim: anything from the bands of the 1960s or 1970s beats any of this anemic he-she crap modern-day bands foist on us.  Period.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY OCTOBER 30, 2020

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

Friday, October 30, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.  Sadly, we failed to do the music of the Great Society at the time or that of various members’ solo catalogs.  We hope to rectify that mistake one day so please stay tuned.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[iv] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[viii] Many people speculate as to WHY Comey would reopen the investigation into Hillary’s missing emails so close to the Election?  Was it because he was demonstrating HIS POWER to Hillary that IF she failed to keep him on at best or worst for the American people, make him the next Attorney-General of the United States that he could destroy her?  Yes, the FBI ‘discovered Anthony Weiner’s laptop with information on it besides the people with whom he was sexting but why would a Deep State maggot like Comey do this to a person whom he wanted to serve?  We await answers…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#PF001.4d Collector’s Box #83 06-17-2020 (400)

 

We found another classic DVD, a blast from the past, by Pink Floyd that originally came out on March 10, 2015, entitled, “Collector’s Box Deluxe 2-DVD Set.”  If you have an unquenched thirst for new Floyd music as well as films, you need to seek this one out as it’s only around $18 as was our previous effort.  Fans are critical because it is nothing new but a repackaging of some older films all in one place but what the heck?  We do believe you will find it intoxicatingly interesting which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or wherever else it is you do and check it out.  We think it’s a worthy addition to any collection of nothing but the best in psychedelic rock music.  Pick it up and enjoy.  We thank you.

TODAY IN HISTORY—JULY 04, 2020

Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., President Donald J. Trump holds a “Salute to America” celebration with U.S. military personnel, tanks on the Washington Mall so people can view military equipment for which their tax dollars pay as well as various military aircraft doing flyovers.  It was awesome to witness although the Democrats were weeping and wailing over the fact that ‘Trump used the military to promote an authoritarian agenda.’

Trump holds a “Salute to America” celebration with U.S. military personnel, tanks on the Washington Mall so people can view military equipment for which their tax dollars pay as well as various military aircraft doing flyovers.  It was awesome to witness although the Democrats were weeping and wailing over the fact that ‘Trump used the military to promote an authoritarian agenda.’  [x]

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 975 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 754 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 34,919 confirmed cases, 1,352 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.

FOOTNOTES:

 

[i] Little would President Thomas Jefferson would ever know, about 190 some years later, American communists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa and other left-wing, Democrat-funded group would revile this brave founding father and American leader as an EVIL SLAVEOWNER to which we say, “F**K THEM!”  We cannot judge people of the past by those of today.  We must stop the vile communists, well-funded by George Soros, Beijing, and other leftist POS from destroying the nation’s heritage, both good and bad.  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will fight tooth and nail to protect the United States and all its history.

[ii] 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 enjoyment.

[iii] 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.

[iv] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[v] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time we did so- in the earliest days of our second blog- we overlooked all of the individual solo efforts by everyone, ranging from Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Peter Green, Bob Welch, to Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham.  We hope to rectify that fledgling error by doing an updated presentation sometime in the future.  Please stay tuned.

[vi] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of the Beach Boys and the group’s individual members- Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson as well as Alan Jardine, Mike Love, Bruce Johnson, and other members- at some point.  It will be a lengthy presentation rivaling if not surpassing the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Who, and Genesis.

[viii] 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 and the Plastic Ono Band.

[ix] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.  When we do, we will do our best to include the music of various collaborations and spin-offs from the group, seeing as how every member was extremely talented.

[x] To which, we say, “F**K the Democrats, stop the crying, shut your mouths, you insolent unpatriotic POS mother-f**kers.
