  57. 2019 Friday: Taiwan becomes the first Asian nation to legalize same-sex marriage as a vote by parliament confirms it.  Based on this alone is reason enough as to WHY the civilized world must welcome Taiwan- the Republic of China, aka Nationalist China, aka FREE China- back to the United Nations as an original founding member.  Elsewhere, a federal judge in Virginia sentences a former CIA officer- Kevin Patrick Mallory- to a 20-year stretch in a federal prison for having spied on behalf of the Chi-Coms.  Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passes the Equality Act which prohibits discrimination based on sexual preferences and gender identity.  (Note- there was a time when people kept this crap to themselves ut no more- thus we now have a law).

Ige.  Finally, here is Washington state’s stats: 18,433 confirmed cases, 1,001 confirmed deaths, but, like California, 0 number of confirmed recoveries. 
  59. 2020 Sunday A: Now, interesting note here: people are criticizing Russia for not sharing their REAL stats, they say the number of deaths are too low.  Well, Russia said today they are only listing those citizens actually killed by the coronavirus and not those who might have died with the virus but from other things.  Would that not be great if the CDC would do the same thing and would it not be great if the CDC forced every state to report the actual statistics?  Here’s Russia’s stats: 281,752 confirmed cases, 2,631 confirmed deaths, and 67,373 confirmed recoveries.  IF anyone is lying about their numbers, it’s the communist Chinese, the nation that gave this crap to the entire world.  Here are their numbers: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  People’s Republic of China: NOTHING BUT LIARS.
  60. 2021 Monday: Amigos, stick around and discover the truth along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final studio album released by Badfinger- “Head First”- came out on November 14, 2000 and it featured the following lineup: Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Bob Jackson (rhythm guitars, keyboards, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  You say, how can this be?  Some of these folks are dead?  Yep, true, absolutely true.  Here is the deal- 26 years ago- that’s correct- 26 years ago- while the band was on tour, their record company said YOU must record another album on the heels of “Wish You Were Here” trying to squeeze the last drop of output out of this tragedy-laced band.  Tired, frustrated, and with dissension in the ranks- Molland jumped ship- the group went into the studio and in two weeks created this album which then disappeared into the vaults.  Thus- 26 years later- “Head First” finally became available to the fans.  We enjoy it and suspect you will, too, because Pete Ham was a unique performer and vocalist.  Great album, please, seek it out and give it a good listen.  You will be glad you did.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 544

DAY ONE-HUNDRED-AND-SEVENTEEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, MAY 16, 2021:

Vice President Levi P. Morton; U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward; Black Sabbath featuring Ronnie James Dio, King Crimson featuring Robert Fripp, Nazareth featuring Darrell Sweet, Nirvana featuring Krist Novoselic, Robin Trower featuring James Dewar, Savoy Brown featuring Roger Earl, and the Who:

  1. 1770 Wednesday:  Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was only 15 years old.
  2. 1771 Thursday: The Battle of Alamance, a pre-American Revolutionary War battle between local militia and a group of rebels called the Regulators, took place on this date in Alamance County, North Carolina.
  3. 1792 Wednesday: Denmark abolishes the slave trade.
  4. 1801 Saturday: In Florida, N.Y., future 24th U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward is born.  He would serve under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson from 03-06-1861 to 03-04-1869.  During this time, he bought Alaska from the Russians, something many saw as foolhardy and a waste of taxpayers’ money.  In fact, so many derided the purchase, they called it “Seward’s Folly;” that is, until massive gold deposits were discovered there.  In 2019, the 45th president of the United States sought to buy Greenland from Denmark and everyone laughed at him, including the Europeans.  Imagine how important Alaska is to the United States geopolitically and the same could be true of Greenland.  We shall see.
  5. 1817 Friday: Regular steamboat service up-and-down the Mississippi River begins on this date.
  6. 1824 Sunday: The future 22nd Republican vice president of the United States—Levi P. Morton—is born in Shoreham, Vermont, on this date.  He served under President Benjamin Harrison from 1889-1893.

Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority required to convict; 10 days later, the trial ended after two other articles of impeachment went down in flames, too.  The problem was Johnson wanted to follow the wishes of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln who wanted to treat the South with leniency while Lincoln’s holdover Cabinet members wanted to crush them.
  12. 1869 Sunday: The Cincinnati Reds play their first baseball game and win 41-7.

  22. 1929 Thursday: The motion picture industry presented the first Academy Awards on this date.  The movie, “Wings,” won best production while Emil Jannings and Janet Gaynor won best actor and best actress respectively.
  23. 1939 Tuesday: The government began its first food stamp program in Rochester, New York; under future President Barack Obama, it is at the highest levels ever before seen.  Elsewhere, the Philadelphia Athletics and the Cleveland Indians met at Shibe Park in Philly for the first baseball game played under lights in the American League.  
  24. 1940 Thursday: Prime Minister Winston Churchill returns to London from Paris as the Nazi juggernaut rolls across France.  For the Germans, the conquest of France is going better than expected.  French troops are in full retreat while the British are struggling to reach the Channel Coast.  General Heinz Guderian’s XIX Panzer Corps is breaking away from the rest of the steam-rolling army to try to beat the Brits to the coast so as to complete the trap and bag tens of thousands of prisoners.

  48. 2010 Sunday: In Houston, Texas, Ronnie James Dio—vocalist who took the place of Ozzie Osborne in Black Sabbath[ix]—lost his battle with stomach cancer on this date; he was 67 years-old.

  52. 2014 Friday: California burning- near San Diego, California, authorities inform the public that at least 20,000 acres have gone up in smoke within the county.   This is the toll of 11 wildfires.  This crap goes on year after year because Democrats will NOT permit proper forest management, won’t build new dams to collect fresh water instead of allowing it to flow out to sea, and putting so many restrictions atop PG&E and other power companies to fight global warming by pursuing renewable energy goals that are unrealistic.  The state requires good governance and it’s not from the Democrats.

  56. 2018 Wednesday: As talks on a summit between North Korea and the United States continues, Pyongyang says that it ‘might cancel the talks if the U.S. continues demanding unilateral disarmament of its nuclear weapons.  They know what happened to Libya that gave up its WMDs and things did not end well for the regime of Moammar Gaddafi.   Likewise, talks that were supposed to occur between North and South Korea are canceled as a protest of U.S. demands.
  57. 2019 Thursday: According to the Global Drug Survey, English-speaking peoples are more likely to get drunk throughout the year than do, non-English speakers, with the British getting drunk the most, an average of 51 times per year.  Folks, this is bogus information as Russians drink more than anyone and communist nations’ citizens (or authoritarian ones) drinking more than anyone anywhere else.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration finally does something that should have happened long ago and that is to cancel $929 million federal grant funding the disastrous California High-Speed Rail project, a project that seems to enrich Democratic politicians and their Chi-Com overseers.  (Note- we await Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which will make the train what it is- an expensive boondoggle).
  58. 2020 Saturday: Thanks to communist China, the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues as the disease continues causing problems around the world.  However, information coming from independent sources within the totalitarian state report as many as 750,000 cases of the coronavirus with possible number of deaths ranging from 150,000-to-250,000.  Since the authoritarian state won’t tell the world the truth, we must rely on these brave sources willing to put their lives and those of their families at risk to get the truth out to the rest of the world.  Here are the global statistics for today: 4,626,632 confirmed cases what with 311,363 confirmed deaths but 1,679,428 confirmed recoveries which is amazing, the number of recoveries compared to deaths.  In the United States, we have 1,497,244 confirmed cases, 89,420 confirmed deaths, but 272,525 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, state by state, beginning first with the Golden State: 76,793 confirmed cases, 3,204 confirmed deaths, but of course, 0 confirmed recoveries- California, give us the information!  You are no better than flipping communist China!  For Hawaii, we have 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. Ige.  For the once great state of Washington, now beset by a socialist state government, here are the stats: 18,288 confirmed cases, 999 confirmed deaths, but like that fellator Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, NO number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Inslee won’t share the stats.  Vote these scumbags out of office as soon as possible.  
  59. 2021 Sunday: Stick around and discover the news of the day along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger released a live album, “BBC in Concert 1972-1973” on January 11, 1995.  The album featured Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals) and one gets their money’s worth with the exception of one small thing: ALMOST NONE of the BIG HITS are here which is peculiar, one would think that the HITS would be featured prominently throughout the recording but alas they are not.  We hope you will investigate this album to your own liking as we love it and suspect that you will, too.  Why the hits- with the exception of “Come and Get It”- aren’t here is beyond us; thankfully, however, they did throw us a bone with that tune.  Ah, well, seek it out now and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Newsom, you POS?  Next, Hawaii: 638 confirmed number of cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, Washington state: 17,663 confirmed number of cases, 983 confirmed deaths, but like California, 0 confirmed recoveries.  Far-left governors, stop with the flipping politics, give us the stats.  On the unemployment front, we had another 3 million or so Americans file for their benefits.  Thank you, communist China, thank you.  Scumbags.  Meanwhile, the judge in the Michael Flynn Case, Emmet Sullivan won’t let the case go even after the Justice Department said to ‘drop it.’  U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnel: impeach this POS judge.
  60. 2021 Friday: Folks, stick around and uncover the truth along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 24, 1990, Badfinger released a live album, “Day after Day Live,” an album that had long circulated as a bootleg but which was cleaned up by Joey Molland and released as an official release so the band would earn some much-needed royalties.  Recorded at the height of the group’s career, the band features the most popular lineup of the group doing what they do best- performing some of the greatest music ever recorded in the history of rock-and-roll.  The band features Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals) and the tunes contained on this disc are all worth having.  Please, seek it out, give it a good listen, and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Gen. Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following the bust-up of Apple Records and Badfinger being thrown to the winds, their record company compiled 17 key tracks from the post Apple albums on “The Best of Badfinger Volume 2” (January 21, 1990).  You get a key selection of illuminating tracks that demonstrate the potential this star-crossed band possessed so it makes one wonder as to what might have happened had they NOT signed with Apple and found another company willing to market their potential instead of milking them for everything they had like a damp sponge.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your listening day.  We think you will be glad you took the time to give it a thorough listening.  Enjoy.

  63. 2020 Wednesday A: Long-time vocalist with the British rock band Bad Company[vi] (following the departure of original vocalist Paul Rodgers) Brian Howe died at age 66 in Lake Placid, Florida.  He served as the band’s vocalist from 1986 to 1993 and kept the band’s success alive.   Meanwhile, Venezuela announces that it is going to try the so-called ‘mercenaries’ captured a few days earlier by its armed forces in the nation’s civil courts, including the two supposed American ringleaders.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. will do ‘everything in its power to return U.S. citizens to the United States.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On December 13, 1971, after working long hours in the studio and performing gigs, Badfinger returned with “Straight Up,” an album that should have been a massive commercial success but which the critics panned.  The album featured the same lineup of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals) as well as George Harrison who basically joined the band and added his signature slide guitar as well as other notables such as Leon Russell and Gary Wright.  Critics slammed the effort but the group had three producers on the album beginning with Geoff Emerick who did their previous effort followed by ex-Beatle George Harrison who then left the band to bring his Concert for Bangladesh to fruition followed by the Nazz’ Todd Rundgren so there were inconsistencies throughout the effort.  Still, the song “Day After Day” was a big seller and will forever be associated with this gifted band.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  51. 2013 Sunday: The world’s first plastic gun, produced by a 3-D printer by Defense Distributed, test-fires successfully in Austin, Texas; this leads security officials to voice fear that plastic weapons would not be detected at airport screenings, leading to acts of terrorism.   Elsewhere, former U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, seriously wounded in a 2011 shooting at a Tucson, Arizona, shopping mall, received the 2013 Profile in Courage award at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston.
  52. 2014 Monday: According to Brainy History, polio is on the rise as unvaccinated refugees travel across borders; though most prevalent in Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan, infections are now appearing in other parts of Asia and Africa; young children are the most vulnerable.  Meanwhile, a narrowly divided Supreme Court upheld Christian prayers at the start of local council meetings.  Finally, Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams won the NBA’s Rookie of the Year Award.
  53. 2015 Tuesday: What’s more, according to Brainy History, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, announce the name of their baby girl, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.  Elsewhere, following ongoing mistreatment of its citizens and violations of their rights, Jakarta bans its citizens from working as domestics anywhere in the Middle East.  Who can blame them?  Can’t work for the Chi-Coms either…
  54. 2016 Thursday: Due to out-of-control wildfires at Fort McMurray, the Canadian province of Alberta declares a state of emergency and begins the evacuation of 80,000 residents in the area.   Elsewhere, following the discovery of yet another tunnel running from the Gaza Strip into Israel and additional attacks by militants, Israel responds with tank artillery fire killing some Palestinians including a woman.  Moral of the story- stop attacking Israel and you will be fine Gazans.
  55. 2017 Friday: Effective at midnight, an agreement reached by Russia, Turkey, and Iran will establish a ‘safe zone’ in northern Syria through which NO military aircraft will navigate, including American warplanes.  The ‘safe zone’ will also prohibit military action on the ground.   The United Nations is ecstatic that some semblance of civilization will be restored although Syrian military opposition and jihadists such as ISIS refuse to acknowledge or accept.
  56. 2018 Saturday: NASA launched the Mars In Sight lander from California on a flight of more than six months to the red planet, where the robot geologist would dig deeper into the Martian surface than ever before.  Elsewhere, Palestinians are up to no good once again as a large blast erupts near the town of Deir al-Balah blows at least six Palestinians to kingdom come while injuring numerous others.  Hamas thugs point the jihadist finger at the Israelis who point theirs right back.  Sounds like a case of bomb-making gone bad.  Sad.
  57. 2019 Sunday: Due to Palestinian intransigence and transgression over the past several days, four Israeli and 23 Palestinian citizens lie dead and countless others injured.   Meanwhile, at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, at least 41 die and numerous others are injured as a Russian Aeroflot airliner comes back and makes an emergency landing.   Elsewhere, Juan Guido, president of the nation’s National Assembly, says he is considering a request with which to get the U.S. to invade the country and topple the communist POS dictator Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro.
  58. 2020 Tuesday: After the U.S. Supreme Court begins it session hearing arguments from a distance, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg goes to the hospital for what sounds to be an issue with gall or kidney stones.  Politics aside, we wish her a full recovery and a swift return to work.  This woman is amazing, she has survived numerous health crises in her life and always comes back strong.  God bless you.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s charging of those involved in a plot to topple Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro, President Donald J. Trump denies any involvement in the so-called ‘attempted coup.’
  59. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, the COVID-19 update for the day: confirmed cases globally stand at 3,659,271; confirmed deaths are 256,929; and confirmed recoveries are 1,197,735 which is extremely good.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,233,146, confirmed deaths are 71,921, and confirmed recoveries are 163,841.  In the states connected to this blog, stats for California confirmed cases stand at 56,705 while confirmed deaths are 2,309.  Sadly, Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, confirmed cases are 625, confirmed deaths are 17 and confirmed recoveries are 551.  Finally, in Washington state, confirmed cases are 15,557 and confirmed deaths are 862.  No information on confirmed recoveries so Gov. Jay Inslee is behaving just like Gov. Newsom.  Shame on them.  Question: WHY won’t Democrat-controlled states present recovery statistics?  Finally, communist China’s statistics, the place where this curse began remains the same: confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785 same as they were a week ago.  Shame.  
  60. 2021 Wednesday: You know the drill…looks like the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party WOKE stooges are screwing with our numbers…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger came back on November 09, 1970 with their follow-up effort to “Magic Christian Music” with the amazing, “No Dice.”  There was a slight change in the lineup but it would be the lineup with which most fans of the band would long remember it: Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).   The album contained another monster hit, “No Matter What” and another great tune, “Without You,” which although not a hit for Badfinger would become one for the gifted vocalist Harry Nilsson a few years later.  We hope you will seek this one out and give it a good listen; you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Cinco De Mayo commemorates the victory of Mexican rebels over the French Foreign Legion, troops fighting for Emperor Maximillian.  In modern times, restaurants and bars have given it new life so they can increase alcohol and food sales.  Police departments across the land make mass arrests of drunken drivers, thus increasing local municipality coffers.

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

[iii] 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.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[vi] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade.

[vii] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

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.

  63. 2020 Monday: Well, it keeps getting better: we now know we have “Murder Hornets” in the Pacific Northwest.  Although some claim Japan is their homeland, experts now tell us it is communist China where these monstrous insects call home.  Coincidence?  You are the judge.  COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis update: confirmed cases around the world: 3,582,469, confirmed deaths are 251,365, but confirmed recoveries are 1,162,563 so things are looking better.  As for the United States, confirmed cases are 1,201,101, confirmed deaths are 69,579, and confirmed recoveries are 159,789.  In Hawaii, we have 621 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths but 548 confirmed recoveries.  Yet, in the Islands, we live under the authoritarianism of Governor David Ige.  Colleagues in California report 55,657 confirmed cases, 2,254 confirmed deaths and NO- we repeat- NO numbers for confirmed recoveries.  What are you hiding, Gov. 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…

FF. 1954 Monday: Fighting continues at Dien Bien Phu. At Isabelle, French Foreign Legionnaires send out combat patrols to clear communist approach trenches ringing them on all sides. Fighting is fierce in the style of World War I with hand grenades, knives, rifle butts, and brass knuckles. Once again, the communists are driven away, the Foreign Legionnaires bring in captured weapons to augment what they have left. In the main camp, officers are going through the hospital seeking anyone who can load or fire a weapon to return to duty in defense of the camp. The walking wounded pick up arms and head back to the fight. It is US or it is THEM and when it comes to communists, the only good communists are dead communists.

Trump does a digital town hall from the Lincoln Memorial with Fox News Channel.  Of course, his Democrat enemies blast him for ‘doing it there.’  “Anywhere else other than the Lincoln Memorial” is what they cry and whine but anywhere Trump would have done it would have met the exact same criticisms.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Before there was Badfinger, there was the Iveys, a band that formed in Swansea, Wales, and became the first outside band signed to the Beatles’ Apple label.  The group consisted of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, rhythm guitar), Ron Griffiths (bass guitar, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  The group’s first album, “Maybe Tomorrow,” came out on July 04, 1969, and was slated to be issued worldwide; however, for some still unknown reason, it only hit record stores in Japan, West Germany, and Italy which would make this album an expensive collector’s choice once they changed their name from the Iveys to Badfinger and became a massive global phenomenon.  We wholly recommend this album as it’s one for the history books, the start of something amazing as well as extremely tragic which is why we recommend it with as much vigor as we possibly can.   At Amazon.com, you can get the CD for about $20 while on vinyl, it goes for around $200.00.  Seek it out and give it a listen- enjoy.

  61. 2012 Sunday: The government of Bashar al-Assad accuses UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon of ‘encouraging attacks on the government.’  Elsewhere, as Chi-Coms scour Beijing searching for blind dissident Chen Guangcheng who fled house arrest and into the streets, rumors are flying that he somehow made his way to the U.S. Embassy where he sought refuge.  Not good for U.S.-Chi-Com relations but it is what it is.

  67. 2020 Tuesday: News continues to break about “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s sexual assault of then-U.S. Senate staffer Tara Reade in 1993.  Meanwhile, Hillary Rodham Clinton- mum about those assault allegations- endorses former Vice President Biden for president on this day.  On the COVID-19 front, confirmed cases around the world now sit at 3,083,467 what with confirmed deaths at 213,824 but 915,988 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, confirmed cases rests at 1,033,721, confirmed deaths at 58,947, but number of confirmed recoveries sits at 117,690, which is great.  Various states are reopening in bits and pieces and the outlook of Americans is that things are going to get better and they are ready to return to work now.  Meanwhile, calls continue going out as to why famed ‘anti-fascist group,’ ANTIFA, is not in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, and other states with left-wing despotic governors doing battle with these would-be dictators.

  59. 2007 Sunday: “Former Islamist” (NO one is ever a ‘former Islamist’) Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has given the ‘okay’ for the arrest of, detention of, and even the torture of Christian citizens within his country.  Could we see another Armenian Genocide brewing here?  Erdogan is little more than a big piece of festering pig crap and so wants to be a DICTATOR.   Someone needs to eliminate this guy.
  60. 2008 Tuesday: In the Pennsylvania Democratic Party Primary, candidate Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY, wins big, giving Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, a big smackdown.   Meanwhile, a federal grand jury in Las Vegas, Nevada, indicts an unidentified suspect on possession of ricin, a nerve agent.
  61. 2009 Wednesday: Japan reports its first trade deficit since 1981.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate Intel Committee announces that the Bush administration authorized the use of torture ahead of the capture of foreign jihadists on the battlefield.   The report also noted the calls for use of a specialized facility where ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ would be utilized such as ones learned by the U.S. military from its returned POWs from North Korea during the Korean War.  Wow.
  62. 2010 Thursday: The British Petroleum Deepwater Horizon rig that blew up two days prior begins to sink into the Gulf of Mexico; crude oil leaks into the surrounding waters at an alarming rate.   Authorities estimate at least 8,000 barrels of crude oil are going into the Gulf of Mexico every day as well as diesel fuel that the resulting explosion failed to consume.  Meanwhile, 11 people are still missing…
  63. 2011 Friday: After airstrikes destroy 30 – 40 per cent of Libya’s ground forces, U.S. Admiral Mike Mullen states the war is moving toward a stalemate.  Elsewhere, things go awry in the Gaza Strip when a mysterious blast at a factory- probably a bomb-making factory if you will- occurs sending three fortunate souls to meet with Allah sooner than expected and leaving another three wishing they could have gone with their buddies.  Exercise more caution, jihadis.
  64. 2012 Sunday: The U.S. military is faced with having to monitor its servicemen-and-women in Afghanistan after reports of opiate and other drug usage, as well as distribution, begin to arise.  Of course, this smacks of the Vietnam War Era when numerous service personnel were hooked on opiates or involved in their trafficking.   Meanwhile, naval forces from both Russia and the People’s Republic of China participate in joint exercises in the Yellow Sea.
  65. 2013 Monday: The News Corporation phone hacking scandal results in the company’s agreement to pay $139 million to American shareholders.  Elsewhere, the first performer at the Woodstock Music Festival of 1969, 5:07 to 7:00 P.M.—Richie Havens[ix]—died on this date in Jersey City, N.J. at age 72.  Elsewhere, fighting between Nigerian troops and Boko Haram human scum continues in Borno state.   Human rights activists are blasting the Nigerians but local military authorities claim they are ‘inflating the numbers.’
  66. 2014 Tuesday:  An American, Meb Keflezighi, wins the men’s Boston Marathon, one year after two jihadist brothers from Chechnya bombed the race the previous year; an American last won the men’s race in 1983.  Elsewhere, a Russian court orders Alexei Navalny, an anti-Putin, pro-democracy Russian political activist, to pay the sum of 300,000 rubles to settle a libel suit made by a Putin stooge whom Navalny labeled a drug addict.
  67. 2015 Wednesday: Following a long battle over abortion in the U.S. Senate passes by a unanimous vote a bill to combat human trafficking.  Elsewhere, following disputes between the European Union and Russian natural gas giant, Gazprom, the European Union threatens to launch an anti-trust suit against the company, a company that supplies natural gas to much of the European Continent.  How is this going to end?
  68. 2016 Friday: Mayor Boris Johnson of London is peeved with U.S. President Barack Obama.  The 44th president has this effect on people.  Regarding Brexit, Mayor BoJo, also a member of the British Cabinet, says of President Obama that he is both ‘hypocritical and inconsistent’ in putting in his two cents regarding the desire of the British people to undergo Brexit.  What right does the Bamster have telling another country- especially our oldest ally- to NOT do something.  
  69. 2017 Saturday: As the Trump transition continues, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy gets the axe and is sent packing.  For the time being, Deputy Surgeon General Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams will serve as the Acting Surgeon General.  Elsewhere, angry Venezuelans continue protesting against the regime of faux President Nicolas Maduro. 
  70. 2018 Sunday: A bus crash in northern North Korea kills at least 36 people, most of them Chinese tourists.  WTF is there to see in North Korea other than pain, misery, and suffering?   Meanwhile, Saudi warplanes kill 20-plus people at a wedding in northwestern Yemen.   Target: Houthi rebels so the wedding attendees most likely were terrorists.
  71. 2019 Monday: ‘Nobody’ Congressman Seth Moulton, DS-MA 6th congressional district says, ‘I am running for the Democratic Party’s 2020 Presidential nomination.’  Big deal.   Meanwhile, the Trump administration directs that ALL nations buying oil from Iran stop doing so by May 01 so that they can cripple the country economically and stop their march towards the development of nuclear weapons.  
  72. 2020 Wednesday: At the time of this publishing, the confirmed cases of the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka COVID-19, aka Coronavirus, aka Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu around the planet sit at 2,614,040 what with confirmed deaths at 182,004 but confirmed recoveries at 706,636.  In the United States, confirmed total number of cases is 840,625 what with 46,996 confirmed deaths and 76,864 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the s-hole country where this all began- the People’s Republic of China- the Chin continue claiming 83,868 confirmed cases and 4,636 confirmed deaths.  How interesting is that?  Western intelligence agencies have reported a greater number of deaths that dwarf anything the communist government claims is the truth.  Shame on them.
  73. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 144,025,288 confirmed cases, +1,013,182, 3,062,087  confirmed deaths, +15,938, and 82,570,488 confirmed recoveries, +590,604.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,039,261 confirmed cases, UP 160,965 from yesterday’s reporting, 574,418 confirmed deaths, UP 1,717, (figures for the U.S. are the same as yesterday’s) and 119,051,035 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.[x] 
  74. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 250,546 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  75. 2021 Thursday 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: 3,725,196 confirmed cases, 61,170 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,191,038 confirmed cases, 34,696 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,885 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Mexico, the fictional home of “Breaking Bad”: they have 195,793 confirmed cases, 4,022 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xi]   
  76. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,807 confirmed cases, 6,346 confirmed deaths, and 829,127 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Moldova, a former piece of the old Soviet Union: 247,391 cases of the virus, 5,643 confirmed deaths and 234,204 confirmed recoveries.[xii]    In other foreign Chi-Vi news, we learned today that FAKE Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines have been discovered in countries such as Mexico and Poland.
  77. 2021 Thursday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,815.90, DOWN 321.41 points (-0.94%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,818.41, DOWN 131.81 points (-0.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,134.98, DOWN 38.44 points (-0.92%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.78 per barrel, +0.35 (+0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,784.20 per troy oz., +2.30 (+0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $26.18 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,206.50 per troy oz, -2.00 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.27 per pound, -0.01 (-0.19%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,828.60 per troy oz, -47.13 (-1.64%).[xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $29,200.00 per troy oz., -300.00 (-1.02%).[xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,460.00 and in Jamaican dollar, a buck equals 150.04.[xvi]   In other business news, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘small business owners cannot find enough employees.’
  78. 2021 Thursday 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 $3.979 per gallon, $2.808 in Florida, $3.758 in Hawaii, and $3.397 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maryland: $2.772.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,201,534,976,782 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  79. 2021 Thursday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- a new report hit the news cycle today suggesting that Health and Human Services, an agency headed by Secretary Xavier Becerra, a man who never met an illegal alien he did not want to protect or a baby to abort, is paying travel expenses for (NAMBLA) and other groups to come pick up illegal alien brats and then take them elsewhere in the country.  Shady foster care services are making BIG BUCKS right now caring for illegal alien minors.  Meanwhile, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, calls Joe Biden on the spot demanding that the feeble old coot declare a “CRISIS” along the southern border.  Speaking of calling a ‘crisis’ a ‘crisis,’ Politico has forbidden its employees from labeling the southern border crisis a ‘crisis.’  Sad.  (Note- Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden won’t visit the border so he won’t be forced into acknowledging we have a BORDER CRISIS.’   In other border news, Congresswoman Lisa McClain, R-MI 10th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is aiding the Mexican drug cartels by taking the illegal alien kids and distributing them across the country.’  Can we stop doing this, Joe?   Congressman Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, points out that resistance in Arizona to mass illegal alien invasion shows there are problems in the White House.
  80. 2021 Thursday G: EARTH DAY CLIMATE COMMUNISM NEWS- Conservative commentators with the balls to call out Joe Biden point out that his so-called ‘climate summit’ is little more than a gift to the Chi-Coms who will agree to anything and then forge ahead with their plans.  Who can blame them?  Since it’s ‘Earth Day,’ Joe Biden rolls out sweeping new climate goals that are little more than open doorways for communism to consume both the country and the world.  Thanks, Joe.   Speaking of our drooling commander-in-chief, Climate Change protesters pushed pink wheelbarrows full of steer manure through the streets of Washington, D.C. and dumped them out in front of the White House.  They claim Old Joe is full of s**t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, it’s another Earth Day so it’s another opportunity for angry teenager Greta Thunberg to lambaste the world’s politicians once again.  Young lady, why don’t you row your boat to Beijing and tell comrade Xi Jinping how HE is responsible for f**king up the world?  You might find yourself vacationing in Xinjiang Province.   
  81. 2021 Thursday H: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- In an interesting turn of events, Joe Biden is expected to call the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  This is going to drive the Turks berserk.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden is talking about raising the capital gains tax to 39.6-to-43.3-percent which collapsed the stock markets today (see Thursday 2021 D) and will kill all further business development and progress.  Thanks, Joe, thanks.  Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is set to speak with Guatemalan officials on Monday, seeking ways to ‘fix’ the ongoing illegal alien crisis.
  82. 2021 Thursday I: POLITICAL NEWS I- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says he ‘won’t budge on the Senate filibuster.’  Next, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is going to visit Iowa on June 29, 2021, to help fellow GOP politicians in election bids.  Some believe this is testing the waters for a run in 2024, something with which, we don’t concur.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill that would make Washington, D.C., a state, something the U.S. Constitution expressly forbids.  It moves onto the U.S. Senate.
  83. 2021 Thursday J: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS- Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a pair of bills into law today that protect motorists from ‘protesters.’  Not long after he did that, there was an INSURRECTION in the State House in which, a bunch of BLM supporters stormed the building and had to be tossed out on their butts by security.  Excellent.   Next, the POS Islamist from Syria[xix], let in on the refugee program under President Barack Hussein Obama who shot up the King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, is being charged with having a high-capacity magazine.  Say it ain’t so!  Next, Columbus, Ohio, following the death of a 16-year-old Ma’ Khia Bryant was shot dead by a police officer yesterday as she was in the act of stabbing another young girl, protests and riots are occurring in the city, especially after troglodyte LeBron “Fecal Matter” James poured gasoline all over the fire yesterday with a threatening tweet against the officer involved in the action.  Look, when you are threatening someone with an 8-eight-inch blade and you are overheard saying, “I’M GOING TO STAB THE F**K OUT OF YOU, BITCH,” was the officer supposed to stand aside and watch the deed done?  Enough with this bulls**t.  Moving on, Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel program that SEXUAL ASSAULTS in New York City this past couple of months are UP by…get this…322-percent.  Gee whiz.  WTF is Mayor Bill “The Blank” Di Blasio doing to halt this horrendous sexual crime wave?  Nothing.  Finally, the POS Bangladeshi that tried to carry out a suicide bombing in the Times Square subway station received a life term in federal prison today.   
  84. 2021 Thursday K: SUPREME COURT NEWS- On a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects limits imposed on life sentences for juveniles.  This led to Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor slamming her fellow justices- but Brett Kavanaugh in particular- noting that the newer justices are willing to overturn precedent extremely easy.   Speaking of liberals, Democrats are demanding (don’t they always) that Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from a donor privacy case.  C’mon, Dems NEVER recuse themselves from anything.   Speaking of the nation’s high court, GOP senators are speaking out against the Democratic Party’s twisted scheme of packing the court.[xx]
  85. 2021 Thursday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- The Department of Homeland Security reveals yet another cybersecurity hack into U.S. systems, blaming the Russkies when everyone knows it’s the Chi-Coms doing the evil deeds.  Next, the U.S. Senate passes a bill making it a crime to practice Asian Hate.  Folks, the Dems must tell the BLACK DEMOCRATS to stop attacking the ASIAN DEMOCRATS.  Everyone knows what has been going on, black Americans assaulting Asian Americans and for what?  Did the Dems mobilize their shock troops to commit these heinous acts?  We think so.  Next, former aide to former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, Bridget Kelly, says the ‘big oaf is unfit to ever become president.’  He engineered ‘Bridgegate’ and Ms. Kelly underwent two criminal trials, was facing prison until the Supreme Court tossed this bogus case.   Elsewhere, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, is scheduled to give the rebuttal to Joe Biden’s upcoming ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress. 
  86. 2021 Thursday M: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- Late last night, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you know of whom we speak) carried out a suicide car-bombing outside a luxury hotel in Quetta, Pakistan.  The resulting explosion killed four and wounded at least 11.  Supposedly, the Chi-Com ambassador was on site so no one knows for sure whether he was the target or it was just another day at the office for the jihadists.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is putting forth a bill designed to crack down on People’s Republic of China infiltrating our institutions of higher learning.  Good.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, slams the enfeebled Joe Biden over his crackpot plans for rejoining with the Iranians in the deeply flawed JCPOA.   Moving on, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggests the U.S. could give eventual U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens willing to plant trees.  How about they plant them in YOUR country?).
  87. 2021 Thursday N: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II- A new report suggests that the Russians are suspected of launching directed energy attacks on U.S. military personnel.  Okay, uh, when claims of Vladimir Putin placing bounties atop the heads of U.S. soldiers led to demands that President Donald J. Trump go to war with the Russkies, how come the very same voices aren’t demanding that Joe Biden go to war?  Speaking of the Russians, it appears they have blinked and have pulled their forces back from the eastern border of Ukraine.  Wow.  Joe scared them?  In other ‘foreign news,’ a team of scientists are urging Congress to release more information on UFOs after one incident comes to light in which, a UFO going along at 120 miles per hour over Puerto Rico suddenly splits in two and heads off in different directions.  Folks, we have a problem on this planet.  What are we going to do about it?  (Note- this incident occurred back in 2013 so why are we just hearing about it now?)  Finally, at the upcoming meeting of House Republicans, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that President Donald J. Trump WON’T be addressing the group.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Folks, we are the only site with the balls to point out that Earth Day is little more than a surreptitious way with which to shove communism down our throats with a smiley face attached to it (look at that angry little dingbat Greta Thunberg, that girl needs to get a life).  When you consider all the things the Earth has been through, through the Industrial Age through numerous wars in which millions of bombs were dropped, fired, or set off, i.e., high explosive, poison gas, white phosphorous, and incendiaries, just as the number of nuclear tests below ground, on ground, in the atmosphere, or in the depths of the ocean and the planet is still here.  We’re not saying any of this is or has been good; no, what we are saying is that the planet has amazing recuperative powers and as long as we maintain the health of our oceans, rivers, lakes, streams, and ponds just as we keep the air clean, our planet is going to continue to survive.  Please, let us stop making more Greta Thunberg-like crazed lunatics, no more AOC and others of her squad, let’s set these dimwits straight and let’s work toward the maintenance of a clean environment and towards nuclear power for all.  Likewise, we know hydrogen burned as fuel provides water vapor so what happened to fueling our vehicles with hydrogen?  It’s all about CONTROL.  CONTROL of you, me, of everyone and everything so dimwits like John Kerry and the rest of the Green Regime can live in luxury and style.  We say, “FUCK THEM!  FUCK EARTH DAY!  FUCK EVERY LITTLE PANSY WHO SNIVELS AND WHINES THE PLANET IS DYING.”  Stupid fucks.  

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We promoted the music of a group of interconnected venerable British rock bands as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[vi] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press 2006 as well as Time-Life Books excellent series on the Vietnam War serve as the main sources for this historic battle.

[vii] Alas, if only that indoctrinated moron Greta Thunberg was alive back then!  She would have been the center of attention.

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

[ix] We look forward to promoting the music of Edwin Starr one day along with Richie Havens and other famed soul (and folk) singers like Richie Havens.

[xix] The shooter is Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, the 21-year-old shooter who killed 10 people back on March 22, 2021.

[xx] It’s important to note that the Dems have a secondary plan with which to achieve the rulings they seek and that is the constant threat of packing the court.  In so doing, it forces the court to yield more Democrat-friendly rulings so the Dems WON’T pack the court.  NO one can ever trust the flipping Democrats.
