  57. 2017 Wednesday: Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appoints former FBI Director Robert S.

  59. 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).
  60. 2020 Sunday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis statistics for the globe: 4,710,614 confirmed cases, 315,023 confirmed deaths, and 1,732,344 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,516,343 confirmed cases, 89,932 confirmed deaths, and 281,192 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-bloggers, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, California first: 78,839 confirmed cases, 3,261 confirmed deaths, BUT NO number of confirmed recoveries: POLITICS.  Next up, Hawaii: 640 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 572 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, here is Washington state’s stats: 18,433 confirmed cases, 1,001 confirmed deaths, but, like California, 0 number of confirmed recoveries. 
  61. 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.
  62. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 164,253,597 confirmed cases, +523,609, 3,403,704  confirmed deaths, +10,308 and 144,165,892 confirmed recoveries, +84,530.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,744,062 confirmed cases, UP 21,893 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,504 confirmed deaths, UP 339,[vii] and 27,193,861 confirmed recoveries, UP 57,841.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  63. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since JOE BIDEN became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 284,283 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 175,326 deaths.     
  64. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,769,895 confirmed cases, 62,698 confirmed deaths, and 2,012,591 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,293,980 confirmed cases, 36,139 confirmed deaths, and 1,891,240 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,834 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 424,930 confirmed cases, 5,684 confirmed deaths, and 205,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wuhan repatriated: they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.[ix]   In other COVID-19 news, the Lone Star State reports NO new Chi-Vi deaths two months after Joe Biden called the state leadership ‘Neanderthals’ because they ended the mask mandates.  My, my, my.  Meanwhile, the director of the Centers of Disease Control was busy defending the mask mandate.  (Note- millions of Americans no longer believe masks work and that they have become a more a political statement than they were ever about health.  After all, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci said in the beginning of the Chi-Vi crisis that ‘masks were ineffective,’ then they were, then perhaps two were required, then maybe even goggles (that one vanished quickly), and finally 3, 4, or more masks were necessary.  BULLS**T.  Hey- why NO earmuffs, Dr. Fauci?).
  65. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,159 confirmed cases, 6,389 confirmed deaths, and 832,093 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Albania, an ancient nation: 132,032 cases of the virus, 2,435 confirmed deaths and 125,419 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  66. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,327.79, DOWN 54.34 points (-0.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,379.05, DOWN 50.93 points (-0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,163.29, DOWN 10.56 points (-0.25%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.30 per barrel, +0.03 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.70 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $28.36 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,245.70 per troy oz, +1.20 (+0.10%) while the price of COPPER is $4.73 per pound, +0.02 (+0.38%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,906.73 per troy oz, +5.51 (+0.19%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (+0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.77.     In Turkmenistan Manat, one greenback equals 3.49 and in Ugandan Schilling, a buck equals 3,523.94 and in Ukrainian Hryvnia, one dollar equals 27.51 of theirs.[xiv]   In other business news, the availability of fresh oranges and coffee may soon be in question or worse, prices will rise uncontrollably because Brazil is fighting a water shortage.  (Note- there was a time when we made or grew many of the things our country required to improve life for the American people whereas at some point a few decades back, we outsourced everything to other nations.  Globalism does not work nor is it wanted).  
  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four 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 $4.132 per gallon, $2.893 in Florida, $3.854 in Hawaii, and $3.539 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Virginia: $2.936.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.251 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,298,240,723,054 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– First, today is Day 55 for ‘Border Czar Kamala Harris NOT visiting the southern border.  Second, the Acting Director of ICE Tony Pham admits that once Immigration and Customs Enforcement dumps illegal aliens in the interior of the country, they no longer monitor them.  Next, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, blasted the Joe Biden regime on failing to fulfill its duty to the American people and putting an end to the invasion along the southern border.  Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, says that U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas ‘is not taking the border crisis seriously.’  Meanwhile, One America News released updates stats on the numbers: the cost of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens on the American taxpayers is- $489,79,264.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegals that have flowed into the country since January 20, 2021- 1,532,565 illegals.  The total cost of caring for these illegal aliens this year now sits at $149,530,181,632.  Finally, the current number of illegal aliens lurking within the U.S. is around 35,532,564 which means, we are being overwhelmed. 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says that ‘Joe Biden could erase $1.7 trillion in student loan debt with the stroke of a pen.’  (Note- of course but that does NOT mean that debt simply vanishes.  Someone is left holding the bag).  Next, Joe Biden approves the sale of $735 million in military aid to Israel as they fight to survive.  In other Joe Biden news, news reports suggests that pressure is increasing on both him and the Federal Reserve to do something about rising inflation.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden seeks to codify Roe even though Mississippi and other states are passing common sense laws regarding the murdering of the unborn.  (Note- funny how when it comes to slaying the unborn within their mother’s womb, it’s ‘my body my choice’ whereas when it comes to allowing the American people to remove their masks, it’s NOT my body, my choice.  HIV-AIDS patients should be having to show health cards, too, instead of, uh, like in San Francisco, one does not have to inform their partner of their HIV-AIDS status).
  70. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden News–  Last year, Joe Biden reportedly made $607,336 in earnings and paid a federal income tax rate of 25.9-percent.  In other Joe Biden news, that nut-job, Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is taking orders from Benjamin Netanyahu’ and urges the United States to condemn Israel.  STFU jihadist.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Political News I–  Journalist Jeff Greenfield says that the ‘GOP is united and that it’s rallying around President Donald J. Trump.’  Next, (and this is strange), the Department of Homeland Security is trembling in its jackboots that for some unspecified reason, domestic terrorists might be planning on launching attacks during the rollback of mask mandates and the lessening of the Wuhan Flu.  (Note- not clear as to why they believe something as stupid as this; then again, they could have some operatives ready to launch new FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS.  We guess we shall see).  In other news, President Donald J. Trump is scheduled to speak at the GOP Convention in North Carolina on June 05, 2021.  Finally, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the only one benefitted by the ‘mask mandates’ is Joe Biden.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Social Media News And Big Tech News– The CEO of Cameo says that President Donald J. Trump can join their platform.   Next, Vimeo dumps My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell.  Meanwhile, Judge Mark L. Wolf says the court may take Twitter to task over allegations that the social media site prohibits or bans conservative speech while promoting far-left, loony tunes speech.  Good.  Bust them up.  Elsewhere, Parler is back in the App store and also has a new CEO.  In other BIG TECH news, the Wall Street Journal reports that Bill Gates may have been removed as head of Microsoft over a lengthy affair with an underling, i.e., an employee.  Add to his woes the fact that ties reportedly exist between him and murdered pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein.
  73. 2022 Tuesday: Yes, we know, we are running behind but business is back!

  32. 1941 Friday A: Meanwhile, fighting in Iraq continues.  One thing the Iraqis did not count on nor have themselves are airplanes.  The Brits have a squadron of obsolescent World War I era airplanes and put them to effective use lighting up the pro-Axis Iraqis.  Britain continues landing troops in Basra on the Persian Gulf which causes the population to rise up and attack the invaders.

  57. 2005 Monday: About 50 miles north of Kabul, Afghanistan, something goes awry at a munitions dump.  The place blows up killing dozens of people with no full accounting of how many took a one-way trip to meet with Allah or how many others were left devastated one way or another.  Wow.

  61. 2009 Saturday: The United Nations ORDERS- like that means anything- the Israelis to stop evicting Palestinians from East Jerusalem.  Oh, boohoo, boot them out and build housing for your people.   Elsewhere, inside a so-called ‘civilian safe zone,’ Sri Lankan Army troops go on a rampage and kill 91 people and wound another 87.  Not sure as to WHY they did what they did but they did it well.
  62. 2010 Sunday: The European Union and International Monetary Fund present Greece with 120 billion Euro bailout packages, to help rid them of their sovereign debt.   Elsewhere, following the bombing of the Mogadishu mosque yesterday, the death toll rises to 45 and the focus falls on the al-Qaida trash.  Light them up.
  63. 2011 Monday: As the news continues to spread about whacking Osama bin Laden, tens of thousands of people gather at Ground Zero in New York City as well as in other places around the country to celebrate the death of this terrorist POS.  The world also learns that in accordance with Islamic law, U.S. military authorities buried him via a sea burial in the Indian Ocean so that a burial site on land would not become a terrorist shrine.  The Allies did the same thing with the Nazis executed at Nuremburg.  They were cremated and went into a river.

  67. 2015 Saturday: In a boxing match that shattered financial records for the sport, Floyd Mayweather Jr. beats Manny Pacquiao on points in 12 rounds in the world unification welterweight title bout.  What a fight.  Congratulations to Mr. Mayweather.   Elsewhere, as the Nigerian military continues fighting through the Sambisa Forest, the government announces that another 234 women and girls have been rescued from the clutches of the Islamist group, Boko Haram.
  68. 2016 Monday: The ‘religion of peace’ is on the move yet again, this time in Baghdad, Iraq, where three separate bombings claim the lives of at least 14 poor souls including a number of Shiite pilgrims while the Syrian Army takes up positions around its prison in the city of Hama where violent prisoners have overthrown the prison staff and are holding them as hostages.  What will President Bashar al-Assad do?  We think he’ll employ poison gas inside the prison killing all of them (and the guards).   
  69. 2016 Monday A: Elsewhere, the Catholic Church in the Philippines urges its followers to reject Roderigo Duterte who seems to be little more than a whack job.  Down in Venezuela, El Presidente Nicolas Maduro orders clocks in his nation to be moved forward by half-an-hour since the country is facing a major electricity shortage and that somehow moving the clocks up by 30 minutes will alleviate the suffering of the people.  YOU know what will alleviate their suffering?  Your fat neck dangling from a noose in the center of Caracas.  POS communist.
  70. 2017 Tuesday: Still angry from yesterday’s provocative overflight of the Korean Peninsula by two U.S. B-1B heavy bombers, Kim Jong Un warns the world that due to President Donald J. Trump’s belligerent stance against the peaceful Democratic Republic of North Korea, the military is going to accelerate its nuclear weapons programs and ‘could test a nuke at any time’ so there.  Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Times reports that Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro is going to ‘draft a new constitution’ seeing as how violent mobs are protesting his regime in the streets.
  71. 2018 Wednesday: Disaster befalls romaine lettuce in Yuma, Arizona, as a massive e. coli outbreak sickens at least 121 people across 25 states killing one in the process.  Grocery stores around the country put out immediate recalls and stop-sales on all romaine lettuces, fresh and packaged, coming out of the region.   Elsewhere, as a show of good faith, ahead of the summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the North Koreans release the last three American detainees they have been keeping as a potential future trump card.
  72. 2019 Thursday: Iowa passes one of the strictest abortion bans saying ‘can’t happen’ after the detection of a fetal heartbeat.  Good for them.   Elsewhere, Senator Michael Bennet, D-CO, says he is in the running for the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  No one cares.  Meanwhile, Facebook and Instagram ban several big names from its site for spreading violence and hate.  Among the folks bumped off the sites are Alex Jones, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, Milo Yiannopoulos, and several others.  We shall see.
  73. 2020 Saturday: After California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom orders ONLY the beaches of Orange County closed, the sheriff of the county says, ‘he will not enforce the order.’  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19- Wuhan Flu front- confirmed global cases are 3,424,254; confirmed deaths sit at 243,674; and confirmed recoveries are 1,092,715.  In the United States, the Kung Flu Virus Crisis- given us by the communist Chinese- is thus: confirmed cases sit at 1,157,782, confirmed deaths at 67,046, and confirmed recoveries are 150,934.  Meanwhile, the communist Chinese claim the following numbers (let’s see if they have changed): confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785!  Which is almost the same as one week ago, lying scumbags.  Around the United States, more states continue reopening and no upticks in the Coronavirus Crisis are seen so to all authoritarian governors out there, you better lighten up.  (It is interesting to note that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is still whining about ‘Confederate and swastika flags being seen at protests but every piece of film we have looked at, those flags are nowhere to behold.  ANTIFA- do your job, go to Michigan, and protest this b***h).
  74. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 153,467,379 confirmed cases, +667,534, 3,215,537  confirmed deaths, +9,349, and 131,436,594 confirmed recoveries, +71,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,178,844 confirmed cases, UP 29,104 from yesterday’s reporting, 591,056 confirmed deaths, UP 306,[viii] and 25,777,864 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,866.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix] 
  75. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 276,388 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 281.6 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,812 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,586 deaths.

  79. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four 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 $4.040 per gallon, $2.780 in Florida, $3.790 in Hawaii, and $3.471 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- New Hampshire: $2.766.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the seventh lowest gasoline price in the world- Nigeria: $1.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,240,289,802,772 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.  In other business news, Berkshire-Hathaway bigwig Warren Buffet is celebrating 1st quarter earnings in 2021 of $11.7 billion.  He also is warning investors NOT to gamble on stocks.   Meanwhile, in other economic news that will trash the U.S. economy, Joe Biden is QUIETLY preparing a massive increase in Food Stamps, even higher than the one his former (well, could still be the current) boss, Barack Hussein Obama had and without going via the U.S. Congress.  Yet another unilateral move that will see millions of dollars going to illegal aliens.
  80. 2021 Sunday F: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Kansas City, Missouri- 71-year-old Joseph Naumann told Newsmax TV that ‘it’s wrong for Joe Biden to use his Catholic ‘faith’ because it misguides Catholic listeners.’  Look, WE believe (and I’m a Jew- Mo) that the Roman Catholic Church should excommunicate Joe Biden and other scurrilous, reprobate Catholics such as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the decrepit nonagenarian because she like he are big PROPONENTS of the Pro-Death Movement and NOT because they believe women have a right to control their own bodies but because they make money off it via campaign contributions.
  81. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Like Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is having a challenging time within her party for being the neo-lib that she is by going against President Donald J. Trump.  She is expected to be removed from GOP leadership by June at the latest.   Next former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says that ‘Lockheed-Martin possesses UFO wreckage. This is getting better all the time.   We are looking forward to the upcoming UFO report next month- if the feds actually release it.  Elsewhere, the runoff for the U.S. House seat in Texas 6th congressional district is between two Republicans: Susan Wright (19.2%), backed by President Donald J. Trump and Jake Ellzey (13.8%), which has the Democrats sobbing gobs of tears as they genuinely thought they were going to propel third-place runner-up Jana Lynne Sanchez (13.4%) into the House to help a beleaguered “Mumbles” Pelosi.  
  82. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, continues sharing his views on Afghanistan and says we must withdraw from the country NOW.  We concur wholeheartedly and think we should have been out of there before President George W. Bush left office (and should never have gone into Iraq).  Since going to that forlorn country, Senator Paul says we have blown $825 billion to 1 trillion building roads and schools, protecting women, and doing other non-war-fighting jobs at great cost to our country in resources and human lives.  (Note- I said yesterday that the Democrats and Neocons are seeking a “Gulf of Tonkin Incident” so they can keep forces in that s—hole country in perpetuity and to continue reaping the wealth from the Military-Industrial-Political Complex- Mo).
  83. 2021 Sunday I: Political News III– The family of the late Ashli Babbitt is suing the Capitol Hill Police Department for her murder on January 06, 2021.  We still don’t know who fired the fatal shot (but we are learning more about the officer by the day.  We believe her killing was preordained that the House speaker- in control of the Capitol Hill Police Department- wanted to make sure someone lost their life in this FALSE FLAG OPERATION)- Mo).   Elsewhere, the U.S. State Department has announced that there is “NO TRUTH” regarding a prisoner swap with the Iranians.   Meanwhile, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, says he remains hopeful on police reform occurring in the U.S. Senate.  Finally, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says of Joe Biden’s $2.1 trillion infrastructure bill that it’s ‘like someone with a new credit card.’   Finally, famed economic adviser Larry Kudlow says Joe Biden’s BIG GOVERNMENT PUSH is destabilizing and bad for the United States.’
  84. 2021 Sunday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is warning of a “U.S.-communist China Armageddon.”  Amen, Mr. Secretary, amen.   Next, Kim Jong Un warns the U.S. of GRAVE CONSEQUENCES over Joe Biden’s mumbling, stumbling speech the other day on the 99th day of his regime before a Joint Session of the U.S. Congress.   Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is being forced to answer for his personal spending.  Oooh, BoJo could be going down.  Meanwhile, riotous soccer fans stormed Manchester United’s field over the U.S.-based owners proposing the ‘Super Soccer League’ that would feature only elite teams and would be a power grab by wealthy billionaires.   Finally, a Cuban dissident’s hunger strike is challenging the communist regime. 
  85. 2021 Sunday K: Miscellaneous News I– Yesterday, the Empire State Building celebrated its 90th birthday.  Next, SpaceX’s Dragon Capsule returned four astronauts back from the International Space Station in the first nighttime landing in the Gulf of Mexico since the Apollo missions.  Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has another job (not that she shows up for any of them): she is now going to be the head of the National Space Council.
  86. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Formed in the late 1950s as the Hawks, the group that would come to be known as the Band evolved in 1967.  Featuring four Canadians and one American, the band erupted onto the stage with their first album, “Music from the Big Pink,” (July 01, 1968).  In some ways, the band was a throwback in that having performed with Bob Dylan for a lengthy time, they combined elements of acoustic folks with rock and roll with the music of the prairies, the back-hills, and other American-Canadian forms in an extremely alluring package of sound.  The band features 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).  Their first album touched the souls of many and put them on a path to stardom, one that would take them to Woodstock in 1969 and beyond.  One of the big hits was “The Weight.”  What we have here is the 50th anniversary edition of this celebrated album, “Music from Big Pink 50th Anniversary Edition,” a beefed-up effort featuring all manner of additional gems for your listening pleasure.  The album came out on January 01, 2018.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did, of that, we guarantee.

  60. 2017 Sunday:  In the AFC Wild Card Game, the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Miami Dolphins by a score of 30-12 while in the NFC Wild Card Game, the Green Bay Packers blow out the New York Giants by a score of 38-13.  Meanwhile, as Inauguration Day draws closer, the news media is in a big hubbub over the danger North Korea poses the United States and that President-elect Trump cannot handle it like Barack Obama did.  Uh, okay.  
  61. 2018 Monday: Liberals are going berserk again as President Donald J. Trump threatens to strip temporary protected status from 250,000 El Salvadorans lurking within the shadows of the United States.  Time to go.  In the same vein, President Trump is meeting with lawmakers to discuss funding for the border wall and an end to DREAMERS in the U.S.  Elsewhere, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the College Football National Championship goes to #4 Alabama who beats #3 Georgia by a final score of 26-23.
  62. 2019 Tuesday: U.S. Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, takes his seat in the U.S. Senate on today’s date.  Prior to this, he served Florida as a two-term governor.  He defeated a Democrat, Bill Nelson, who had been on the court for a long, long time.  C’ est la vie!  Meanwhile, U.S. Deputy Attorney-General Rod J. Rosenstein says that he will leave his post once a new attorney general undergoes confirmation.  Elsewhere, federal prosecutors accuse former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort of having passed campaign information to ‘Russian operatives.’
  63. 2020 Wednesday: President Trump tells the assembled media that ‘As long as he is president, Iran will NEVER have nuclear weapons.’  The president also urged NATO to take a greater role in the Middle East while encouraging all other signatories of the Iran Nuclear Deal- including Russia and China- to bail out.  In addition to that, President Trump promised even more sanctions against the Iranian regime with the desired purpose of having the dictatorship return to the society of nations.  Defense and intelligence officials brief Congress on the missile barrage the Iranians shot off in the vicinity of U.S. targets in Iraq.  Sparse damage was sustained, and no lives were lost although Radio Tehran bragged about 80 or more American casualties.   Some Democrats continue labeling President Trump an ‘assassin’ while most Americans believe what he did to be justified.  
  64. 2021 Friday: It appears that Democrats are cowering in their corners over what President Donald J. Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A. Milley to see if he would prohibit President Trump from launching nuclear barrages against the Chi-Coms, Iran, and other enemies of the U.S.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal Editorial board says, ‘Trump should resign now.’
  65. 2021 Friday A: “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his wife, Jill, announce their first priority on entering the White House is to spend $1.2 million taxpayer dollars to renovate the bathrooms in the private residence.  Uh, okay, extremely important.  “Let them eat cake,” says Dr. Jill.  Next, ‘Vice President-elect Kooky Kamala’ Harris is taking heat from people across the board for her lambasting the purported Trump supporters’ riot on Capitol Hill on Wednesday when she encourage Black Lives Matter and Antifa to riot all summer, fall, and into the winter.  What a VP choice, folks, what a VP choice.   Speaking of violence, U.S. Catholic bishops condemn Wednesday’s riots.  Finally, the Boston bomber is suing the federal government over the prison restrictions forced upon him.
  66. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’ 
  67. 2021 Friday C: President Trump awards the medal of freedom to three golfers- Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player, and Babe Zaharias.   Meanwhile, Ronna McDaniel is elected to another term as chair of the Republican National
    Committee whereas Hope Hicks says she is leaving next week.  Larry Kudlow and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are both remaining to the end of Trump’s term.    Next, President Trump promises to be a GIANT VOICE for his followers, all 77-80 million of them.  Finally, Simon and Schuster cancels Senator Josh Hawley’s book deal following his role in contesting the election results (which all the losers- both right and left- are using as an excuse to jump ship).
  68. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  69. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC, and the DNC contained timing devices.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Castle Music label compiled a ‘best of’ collection for Sandy Denny that came out on April 12, 2005: “Where the Time Goes- Sandy ‘67.”  The album features a collection of 18 glorious tracks running from her earliest days prior to her association with Fairport Convention, Fotheringay, and Fairport Convention again and prior to her final solo career.  Thus, you get lots of acoustic Sandy mostly alone but with others including a unique collaboration with the Strawbs, another folkie acoustical group from the UK.  We hope you will investigate this one for yourselves, give it a good listen, and then consider adding it to your growing collection of music from this devoted vocalist and songwriter.  You will be so glad you did.  Enjoy.

Friday, January 08, 2021, Today in History:

Saturday, January 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

285. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2021

Meanwhile, the left has the long knives out for Lt. Gov. Mark Robison, R-SC, because of him labeling homosexuals and trannys ‘filth.’ Look: everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam, DS-VA, his Lt. Gov. Justin “The Rapist” Fairfax, DS-VA, and Attorney General Mark “Black Face II” Herring, DS-VA, didn’t resign over their combined problems of racism and sexual violence so why should Lt. Gov. Robinson? Stand your ground.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 396

DAY TWO-HUNDRED-AND-SIXTY-SIX OF THE BIDEN REGIME

285. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2021:

U.S. Supreme Court Roger B. Taney: U.S. Attorney General Roger B. Taney; U.S. Secretaries of State Philander C. Knox and Dean Acheson; U.S. Secretaries of War John Canfield Spencer and William W. Belknap; General Robert E. Lee, Chef Murph MacDougal of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day; Blue Cheer featuring Dickie Peterson, Jesus Christ Superstar, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, John Denver, and Robin Trower featuring James Dewar:

  1. 638 Friday: Honorius ends his reign as the 70th Roman Catholic Pope; Severinus is his successor.  Honorius the I began serving all Christendom on October 27, 625 until today.  Severinus- the 71st Roman Catholic Pope- would serve from May 28, 640 until August 02, 640. 
  2. 642 Wednesday: John IV ends his reign as the 72nd Roman Catholic Pope.
  3. 1285 Friday: After 180 Jews refuse baptism, the local folks of Munich, Germany, set them on fire.
  4. 1492 Wednesday: According to the Old-Style Calendar, Christopher Columbus arrived with his expedition in the present-day Bahamas.  The Italian explorer—sailing under the Spanish flag—believed he had arrived in Asia through heading west instead of eastward around the Horn of Africa.  Upon arriving in the islands, he claimed the land for King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain.
  5. 1692 Sunday: The Massachusetts Bay Colony discontinues its witch trials.
  6. 1792 Friday: America celebrates Columbus Day for the first time.  People would continue honoring this holiday for more than two centuries until leftists early in the 21st century began trying to eradicate it.
  7. 1810 Friday: The German festival Oktoberfest first takes place in Munich to celebrate the wedding of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen.  Now, Muslims in Germany demand that the festival end as it ‘offends’ them.
  8. 1841 Tuesday: The 17th U.S. Secretary of War John Canfield Spencer took the oath of office on this date.  Originally a Democratic-Republican, he became a Whig and served under President John Tyler October 12, 1841, to March 04, 1843, then became the 16th U.S. Treasury Secretary.
  9. 1860 Friday: British and French troops capture Beijing.
  10. 1862 Sunday: Confederate cavalry under the command of General J.E.B. Stuart “ride around McLellan” for the second time during the Civil War; the Confederates are masters at eluding Union troops.
  11. 1864 Wednesday: In Washington, D.C., the 24th overall U.S. Supreme Court justice and 5th Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, died on this date.  President Andrew Jackson nominated the Federalist-turned-Democrat to fill the seat of Chief Justice John Marshall.  Taney served from March 28, 1836, to October 12, 1864.  It is important to note that Taney served in other roles prior to his final one on the Supreme Court: he served under President Andrew Jackson as the nation’s 11th attorney-general from July 20, 1831, to November 14, 1833, then became the 12th U.S. Treasury secretary (served from September 23, 1833, to June 25, 1834), and finally the 5th U.S. Supreme Court chief justice.
  12. 1870 Wednesday: General Robert E. Lee died in Lexington, Virginia, at age 63.

  15. 1892 Wednesday: In celebration of the 400th anniversary of the Columbus landing, students recited the original version of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools. 
  16. 1901 Saturday: President Theodore Roosevelt renames the “Executive Mansion” the “White House.”
  17. 1907 Saturday: In the 5th World Series, the Chicago Cubs beat the Detroit Tigers 4 games to 0 with one tie.
  18. 1914 Monday: Fighting on the Western Front seethes back and forth between Allied French and British troops and opposing forces, the Germans.  Meanwhile, in Sarajevo, Serbia, the trial of 17 thugs accused in the murder of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, while they were touring the country, commences.  This act- the assassination of the archduke and his wife- set off World War I.  The main shooter- Gavrilo Princip- told the court he did it for greater Yugoslavia- for free Slavs- and will accept his fate.
  19. 1915 Tuesday: The Germans in occupied Belgium executed English nurse, 49-year-old Edith Cavell during World War I.  Germans charged her with aiding and concealing British and French soldiers, but a Belgian collaborator handed her over to the Germans.  She was executed by a firing squad.  Meanwhile, former President Theodore Roosevelt criticizes American citizens who identify themselves with dual nationalities.
  20. 1916 Thursday: In the 14th World Series, the Boston Red Sox beat the Brooklyn Dodgers 4 games to one.  Elsewhere on the Italian Front during World War I, the Eighth Battle of the Isonzo sputters to a foregone conclusion with both the Austro-Hungarians and the Italians suffering around 25,000 casualties each.  Meanwhile, in Bayonne, New Jersey, violence continues following the cops shooting unarmed strikes at the oil refinery and the ensuing violence that began yesterday as angry workers surrounded a police station led to seven more people being shot by the cops.  There appears to be no end to strife in the angry city.
  21. 1917 Friday: The First Battle of Passchendaele begins as Allied forces assault German positions near the Belgium town.  The Allies throw ANZAC forces against the dug-in Germans and the resulting casualties suffered among the Australian and New Zealander troops is shocking to say the least.  Still, the Germans suffered heavily, too, but still clung to their positions.
  22. 1918 Saturday: As World War I continues sputtering to its inevitable conclusion, the German Navy’s proud Airship Division of dirigibles heads out on its final mission against Allied shipping.  The German Zeppelins had so terrorized the English coastal areas during the height of the war and Brits came to fear them appearing overhead.
  23. 1919 Sunday: With World War I over and in the books, Royal Navy sailors in Scotland stage a mutiny.  They were upset at being deployed and redeployed to the Baltic to assist White Russian forces fighting the evil Bolshevik forces in the Baltic Republics.  The government would crush the mutiny with force and imprison numerous officers and men for a variety of crimes.
  24. 1920 Tuesday: In the 18th World Series, the Cleveland Indians beat the Brooklyn Dodgers 5 games to two.
  25. 1921 Wednesday: In Washington, D.C., the 40th U.S. Secretary of State Philander C. Knox died.  He served under President William Howard Taft from March 06,1909, to March 05, 1913.
  26. 1933 Thursday: Bank robber John Dillinger escaped from a jail in Allen County, Ohio, with help from his gang, who killed the sheriff, Jess Sarber.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice acquired Alcatraz Island from the U.S. Army.
  27. 1938 Wednesday: Production commenced on “The Wizard of Oz.”
  28. 1939 Thursday: British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain goes before the House of Commons to give German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler his reply.  England will not accept peace with the Nazi government.  Germany must leave Poland if any peace is to be achieved.  The British people know there will be no peace and sadly begin preparing for a second European war in two decades.
  29. 1940 Saturday: Off the coast of Sicily, British warships and cargo vessels come under sustained attack from Italian naval units as they sail towards Malta to resupply the garrison there.  The British were able to achieve a tactical victory by driving the Fascists off into the open seas.
  30. 1941 Sunday: As the Nazis close in on Moscow, the Soviet government begins relocating to the Volga River cities on the far side.  However, Josef Stalin is determined to remain within the Kremlin until the bitter end.   He is, after all, the ‘Man of Steel’ (and probably also extremely drunk).  The amazing thing about the impending collapse of Moscow is that many educated Russians views the Nazis as potential saviors and that they would be able to survive the German-Axis victory were it to happen.
  31. 1942 Monday: Attorney-General Francis Biddle announced during a Columbus Day celebration at Carnegie Hall that Italian nationals in the United States would no longer be enemy aliens.  Meanwhile, James Dewar, future bassist-vocalist with the Scottish band, Stone the Crows[i], and with Robin Trower[ii], was born on this date in Glasgow, Scotland.  
  32. 1942 Monday A: On the Eastern Front, the fighting continues to rage in Stalingrad.  The final German offensive to drive the Soviets out of the city is set to begin in two days.  Three German infantry divisions, funneled into the city, were preparing to assault the final holdout portions of the city.  Two regiments of tanks from a panzer division were preparing to join them.  Finally, in the Pacific Theater during World War II, the U.S. Navy is able to defeat Imperial Japanese ships during the Battle of Cape Esperance.  The U.S. lost one destroyer while two Japanese destroyers were sunk by warplanes from Guadalcanal.
  33. 1943 Tuesday: After British Prime Minister Winston Churchill called on Portugal to honor a treaty of mutual support between the two nations hammered out 570 years before, Lisbon- even though it has many pro-Nazis in the government- agrees to permit the British- and Americans in civilian uniform- to set up bases and airfields in the Azores so as to prevent the German High Seas Fleet from doing the same with them.   Berlin is unhappy but they are unable to do anything to change Lisbon’s mind being overwhelmed on the Eastern Front.
  34. 1944 Thursday: Whereas once the Nazis and the Finns were allies, now the Finns have no choice with Moscow threatening to annihilate them if they don’t actively aid them militarily in driving the Germans out, the Finns commence fighting with German forces on their territory.  What a turn of events.
  35. 1945 Friday: Private First-Class Desmond T. Doss received the Congressional Medal of Honor for outstanding bravery as a medical corpsman.  He was the first conscientious objector in American history to win the award.
  36. 1957 Saturday: AICP-END blogger and chef, Murph MacDougal, was born in Fresno, California, on this date.  Happy birthday, Murph!
  37. 1960 Wednesday: An ultranationalist student, Otoya Yamaguchi, who would hang himself in jail, stabbed Japanese Socialist Party leader, Inejiro Asanuma to death during a televised debate in Tokyo.  Meanwhile, at the United Nations General Assembly, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev pounds his shoe on the podium, promising to ‘bury the United States.’
  38. 1962 Friday: The devastating Columbus Day Storm, also known as the “Big Blow,” struck the Pacific Northwest, resulting in some 50 deaths.
  39. 1964 Monday: The Soviet Union launched a Voskhod space capsule with a three-man crew on the first mission involving more than one cosmonaut; the flight lasted for 24 hours.

  66. 2019 Saturday:  California becomes the first state in the Union to ban the sale of new fur products.  Difficult to find leather goods, too; cattle are slaughtered for beef so where are the skins going?  To the flipping Chi-Coms?  That must stop.  Elsewhere, the Philippine national police chief announces his resignation after being tied to narcotrafficking.
  67. 2020 Monday: President Donald J. Trump says that ‘more breath-taking documents’ are yet to come in the failed Trump-Russian Collusion scam, one the Democrats foisted atop the American people for far too long.  We hope people will indeed be going to prison like fired FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey.  Speaking of the former FBI chief, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says that he will select Comey to be his attorney-general should he win on November 3.  What will Hillary say about that?  Speaking of elections next month, the top U.S. military general says that the ‘U.S. military will play NO role in determining the outcome of next month’s presidential election.’
  68. 2020 Monday A: Today, hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett commence in the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Senate minority leader and overall loser Chuck Schumer, D-NY, says he will prevent Democrats from attending when the time comes to vote her onto the floor of the Senate for the full confirmation vote by denying the GOP a quorum.  Uh, okay, senator. Meanwhile, Senator Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, in his opening remarks at the hearing explains to America’s young people the difference between ‘politics’ and ‘civics.’  He explains the difference between originalism, aka textualism v. judicial activism, as well as how court-packing would forever change not just the court but the U.S. Senate.   Senator Josh Hawley, R-Missouri, says in his remarks that the future of religion is at stake here in the United States and that there are 65 million Catholics and millions more Christians in our country that the liberals want to strip away their First Amendment rights to practice their religion as they see fit.   Elsewhere, a recent poll conducted by John Zogby says that 62-percent of Americans do not believe there should be a ‘religious test’ of candidates for the nation’s courts.
  69. 2020 Monday B: The American Bar Association says that Judge Amy Coney Barrett is overly qualified to sit on the nation’s high court.  Various Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee scream and sob that ‘Judge Barrett is going to gut Obamacare and its preexisting conditions coverage (even though every Republican says they will protect this coverage) and that she will also overturn Roe v. Wade.’  Dingbats like Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, demand that ‘Judge Barrett recuse herself from any cases involving President Donald J. Trump.’   Regarding Roe v. Wade, Victoria Toensing, former chief counsel for the Senate Intelligence Committee says that ‘Roe should never have come to the court, that it gained legitimacy as an ‘implied right’ under the First Amendment, the implied right to privacy.’  Like many, she believes it should return to state jurisdictions and not federal controls. 
  70. 2020 Monday C: The White House pushes for a limited stimulus bill as the larger bill once again collapses thanks to the intransigence of the Democrats in the House.  Meanwhile, in the Senate race in South Carolina to topple Lindsey Graham, GOP, his Democratic challenger raises $57 million.   Donald Trump Jr. says that the “Democratic Party is a Trojan Horse for socialism.”   Speaking of socialism, mobs continue wreaking havoc across Portland, Oregon, tearing down statues of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.  President Trump tweets that the ‘animals should be jailed.’  We hope this occurs after Trump wins re-election and the GOP wins BIG on November 3.
  71. 2020 Monday D: The dimwitted governor of New York state- Andrew “The Murderer” Cuomo says he has ‘no interest in going to Washington, D.C., and serving in a Biden administration Cabinet post.  That’s good, governor, because YOU need to stand trial for all the senior citizens, sick and disabled YOU murdered.  What is it with left-wing scum such as you who think nothing of the lives of your citizens by sending Chi-Vi-infected persons into rest homes and retirement homes?  You, sir, will burn in HELL. 
  72. 2020 Monday E: Two NFL games were scheduled today but (14) Denver Broncos (1-3) @ New England Patriots (2-1) is postponed due to COVID-19.  The second game, (15) Los Angeles Chargers, 27 (1-4) @ New Orleans Saints, 30 (3-2) is the final score- in overtime.  Speaking of sports, someone said the Los Angeles Lakers ‘won’ the Finals yesterday?  Who cares.  We hope the NBA relocates to communist China where they belong.  F**k them!

  75. 2020 Monday I: Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley breaks with the commander-in-chief President Donald J. Trump by saying HE will decide on the number of troops to leave in Afghanistan.  This is shocking and demonstrates that Gen. Milley cares more about politics and the Democrats’ goal of keeping never-ending wars continuing into infinity.  The time is coming when following the November Elections and a Trump and GOP victory for the president to sack Milley, FBI Director Chris Wray, and CIA Director Gina Haspel.  These three people are working against the president and the American people.  It must end NOW.

Gov. Mark Robison, R-SC, because of him labeling homosexuals and trannys ‘filth.’  Look: everyone is entitled to his or her opinion.  Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam, DS-VA, his Lt. Gov. Justin “The Rapist” Fairfax, DS-VA, and Attorney General Mark “Black Face II” Herring, DS-VA, didn’t resign over their combined problems of racism and sexual violence so why should Lt. Gov. Robinson?  Stand your ground.

  100. 2021 Tuesday X: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- A father- Scott Smith- trying to find out WHY his daughter was sodomized in her school bathroom by a boy wearing a dress went before the local Loudoun County School Board trying to get answers.  What he got for his troubles were the cops roughing him up, slapping the cuffs on him, and dragging his butt off to the slammer.  In other much more hilarious news, the new movie idolizing Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci had 30 some positive movie critic reviews on Rotten Tomatoes whereas actual movie reviewers- hundreds of them- gave it a rating of two-percent, an astounding but truthful score.  Dr. Fauci is little more than a POS.  Elsewhere, Newsmax is opening a new Middle Eastern Bureau headed by journalist Daniel Cohen.
  101. 2021 Tuesday Y: BUSINESS NEWS- A new report says that the Trump Org. is in negotiations to sell its D.C. landmark hotel to the CGI Group.   Next, Tesla delivers a record 56,000 Chi-Com made EVs to the market.  Can you not make them in the United States, Elon?   Meanwhile, Amazon is pushing back its ‘return to the office’ plan until sometime next year.  Speaking of Amazon, many of its employees as are Google employees are pushing management to stop doing business with Israel.  This is flipping sad.  Meanwhile, Jaimie Dimon says ‘Bitcoin is worthless.’  Finally, EasyJet expects to rake in $1.5 billion over quarters 1-3.
  102. 2021 Tuesday Z: NEW YORK STATE NEWS- Dingleberry New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio is closing the gifted and advanced student classes because mostly white and Asian kids attend them.  Wow.  Speaking of the worst mayor in the country, at yesterday’s Columbus Day Parade in the Big Apple, thousands of New Yorkers booed him as he trudged along.  What a loser.
  103. 2021 Tuesday AA: TEXAS STATE NEWS-  Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill prohibiting vaccine mandates being enforced by any business operating in the Lone Star State.  Meanwhile, Southwest Airlines and American Airlines that are based in the state continue trying to kiss Joe Biden’s mummified ass by trying to force their employees to undergo jabs they simply are unwilling to take.  Southwest has had to cancel thousands of flights beginning last weekend due to a massive sickout by employees refusing to undergo this questionable crap.
  104. 2021 Tuesday BB: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-MEGA-MILLIONS DRAW- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1702 what with a $73 million jackpot on the line: 21, 26, 56, 61, 65, and Mega 04.  Out of 58,713 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $30,060.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Well, what is surprising about a British folk band doing a theme album on a British historical character, John Babbacombe Lee, a condemned murderer sent to the gallows.  However, luck saved Mr. Lee because the gallows failed to operate properly not once, not twice, but three separate times thus he received a reprieve.  Obviously, the Good Lord did not want Lee dead.  Fairport Convention released “Babbacombe Lee” on November 24, 1971, but unlike its predecessor- “Angel Delight”- it sold rather poorly.  The band featured the same quartet that recorded that prior album- Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  Also joining the band were Sandy Denny for vocals on a couple of tracks as well as her beau, Trevor Lucas (rhythm guitar), and Jerry Donahue (lead guitar).  We like this album and know that you will, too, so please, seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music…you will be glad you did.

Mueller III special counsel to investigate the allegations that the Russians interfered in the 2016 Presidential Election.  This charade would continue for nearly two years and would hamper efforts by the 45th president to enact the America First agenda.

  58. 2020 Sunday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis statistics for the globe: 4,710,614 confirmed cases, 315,023 confirmed deaths, and 1,732,344 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,516,343 confirmed cases, 89,932 confirmed deaths, and 281,192 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-bloggers, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, California first: 78,839 confirmed cases, 3,261 confirmed deaths, BUT NO number of confirmed recoveries: POLITICS.  Next up, Hawaii: 640 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 572 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Gov. 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.

[v] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

Trump threatens to strip temporary protected status from 250,000 El Salvadorans lurking within the shadows of the United States.  Time to go.  In the same vein, President Trump is meeting with lawmakers to discuss funding for the border wall and an end to DREAMERS in the U.S.  Elsewhere, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the College Football National Championship goes to #4 Alabama who beats #3 Georgia by a final score of 26-23.

Rosenstein says that he will leave his post once a new attorney general undergoes confirmation.  Elsewhere, federal prosecutors accuse former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort of having passed campaign information to ‘Russian operatives.’
  61. 2020 Wednesday: President Trump tells the assembled media that ‘As long as he is president, Iran will NEVER have nuclear weapons.’  The president also urged NATO to take a greater role in the Middle East while encouraging all other signatories of the Iran Nuclear Deal- including Russia and China- to bail out.  In addition to that, President Trump promised even more sanctions against the Iranian regime with the desired purpose of having the dictatorship return to the society of nations.  Defense and intelligence officials brief Congress on the missile barrage the Iranians shot off in the vicinity of U.S. targets in Iraq.  Sparse damage was sustained and no lives were lost although Radio Tehran bragged about 80 or more American casualties.   Some Democrats continue labeling President Trump an ‘assassin’ while most Americans believe what he did to be justified.  
  62. 2021 Friday: It appears that Democrats are cowering in their corners over what President Donald J. Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A. Milley to see if he would prohibit President Trump from launching nuclear barrages against the Chi-Coms, Iran, and other enemies of the U.S.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal Editorial board says, ‘Trump should resign now.’
  63. 2021 Friday A: “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his wife, Jill, announce their first priority on entering the White House is to spend $1.2 million taxpayer dollars to renovate the bathrooms in the private residence.  Uh, okay, extremely important.  “Let them eat cake,” says Dr. Jill.  Next, ‘Vice President-elect Kooky Kamala’ Harris is taking heat from people across the board for her lambasting the purported Trump supporters’ riot on Capitol Hill on Wednesday when she encourage Black Lives Matter and Antifa to riot all summer, fall, and into the winter.  What a VP choice, folks, what a VP choice.   Speaking of violence, U.S. Catholic bishops condemn Wednesday’s riots.  Finally, the Boston bomber is suing the federal government over the prison restrictions forced upon him.
  64. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’ 
  65. 2021 Friday C: President Trump awards the medal of freedom to three golfers- Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player, and Babe Zaharias.   Meanwhile, Ronna McDaniel is elected to another term as chair of the Republican National
    Committee whereas Hope Hicks says she is leaving next week.  Larry Kudlow and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are both remaining to the end of Trump’s term.    Next, President Trump promises to be a GIANT VOICE for his followers, all 77-80 million of them.  Finally, Simon and Schuster cancels Senator Josh Hawley’s book deal following his role in contesting the election results (which all the losers- both right and left- are using as an excuse to jump ship).
  66. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC and the DNC contained timing devices. 
  68. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 88,203,229 confirmed cases, +290,489, 1,901,510, confirmed deaths, +6,121, and 49,203,004 confirmed recoveries, +189,840.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 22,011,358 confirmed cases, up 340,799 from yesterday’s reporting, 371,096 confirmed deaths, UP 4,662, and 9,776,573 confirmed recoveries, UP 79,660.

  53. 2015 Monday: Following the GOP’s attempt to block the ‘Iranian nuclear deal,’ the Iranian parliament enthusiastically celebrated the ‘deal’ that was struck between the U.S., Iran, and five other nations.  Meanwhile, following the terrorist bombing that struck a ‘peace rally’ in Ankara, Turkey, this past Saturday, Turkish security forces detain ‘numerous suspects’ in the crime; so says Turkey’s deputy prime minister.

  55. 2017 Thursday:  The World Health Organization reports an outbreak of the plague in Madagascar that has claimed the lives of 57 from a caseload of 687 infected.  Elsewhere, in California, thanks to crappy forest management, the death toll from California’s ongoing wildfires increases to 31 dead, numerous others injured, others missing, and loads of properties destroyed.  Meanwhile, the Trump administration moves to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.
  56. 2018 Friday: An airstrike carried out by the U.S. military kills at least 60 al-Shabab jihadists and wounds numerous others.  Excellent work- keep killing these SOBS!   Meanwhile, the Trump administration considers new ways of separating illegal alien families at the border as the nation is under assault by caravans set in motion by hirelings of George Soros (or so we allege) that continue trying to storm our southern border.  We hope you can do it, Mr. President.
  57. 2019 Saturday:  California becomes the first state in the Union to ban the sale of new fur products.  Difficult to find leather goods, too; cattle are slaughtered for beef so where are the skins going?  To the flipping Chi-Coms?  That must stop.  Elsewhere, the Philippine national police chief announces his resignation after being tied to narcotrafficking.
  58. 2020 Monday: President Donald J. Trump says that ‘more breath-taking documents’ are yet to come in the failed Trump-Russian Collusion scam, one the Democrats foisted atop the American people for far too long.  We hope people will indeed be going to prison like fired FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey.  Speaking of the former FBI chief, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says that he will select Comey to be his attorney-general should he win on November 3.  What will Hillary say about that?  Speaking of elections next month, the top U.S. military general says that the ‘U.S. military will play NO role in determining the outcome of next month’s presidential election.’
  59. 2020 Monday A: Today, hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett commence in the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Senate minority leader and overall loser Chuck Schumer, D-NY, says he will prevent Democrats from attending when the time comes to vote her onto the floor of the Senate for the full confirmation vote by denying the GOP a quorum.  Uh, okay, senator. Meanwhile, Senator Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, in his opening remarks at the hearing explains to America’s young people the difference between ‘politics’ and ‘civics.’  He explains the difference between originalism, aka textualism v. judicial activism, as well as how court-packing would forever change not just the court but the U.S. Senate.   Senator Josh Hawley, R-Missouri, says in his remarks that the future of religion is at stake here in the United States and that there are 65 million Catholics and millions more Christians in our country that the liberals want to strip away their First Amendment rights to practice their religion as they see fit.   Elsewhere, a recent poll conducted by John Zogby says that 62-percent of Americans do not believe there should be a ‘religious test’ of candidates for the nation’s courts.
  60. 2020 Monday B: The American Bar Association says that Judge Amy Coney Barrett is overly qualified to sit on the nation’s high court.  Various Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee scream and sob that ‘Judge Barrett is going to gut Obamacare and its preexisting conditions coverage (even though every Republican says they will protect this coverage) and that she will also overturn Roe v. Wade.’  Dingbats like Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, demand that ‘Judge Barrett recuse herself from any cases involving President Donald J. Trump.’   Regarding Roe v. Wade, Victoria Toensing, former chief counsel for the Senate Intelligence Committee says that ‘Roe should never have come to the court, that it gained legitimacy as an ‘implied right’ under the First Amendment, the implied right to privacy.’  Like many, she believes it should return to state jurisdictions and not federal controls. 
  61. 2020 Monday C: The White House pushes for a limited stimulus bill as the larger bill once again collapses thanks to the intransigence of the Democrats in the House.  Meanwhile, in the Senate race in South Carolina to topple Lindsey Graham, GOP, his Democratic challenger raises $57 million.   Donald Trump Jr. says that the “Democratic Party is a Trojan Horse for socialism.”   Speaking of socialism, mobs continue wreaking havoc across Portland, Oregon, tearing down statues of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.  President Trump tweets that the ‘animals should be jailed.’  We hope this occurs after Trump wins re-election and the GOP wins BIG on November 3.
  62. 2020 Monday D: The dimwitted governor of New York state- Andrew “The Murderer” Cuomo says he has ‘no interest in going to Washington, D.C., and serving in a Biden administration Cabinet post.  That’s good, governor, because YOU need to stand trial for all the senior citizens, sick and disabled YOU murdered.  What is it with left-wing scum such as you who think nothing of the lives of your citizens by sending Chi-Vi-infected persons into rest homes and retirement homes?  You sir, will burn in HELL. 
  63. 2020 Monday E: Two NFL games were scheduled today but (14) Denver Broncos (1-3) @ New England Patriots (2-1) is postponed due to COVID-19.  The second game, (15) Los Angeles Chargers, 27 (1-4) @ New Orleans Saints, 30 (3-2) is the final score in OT.  Speaking of sports, someone said the Los Angeles Lakers ‘won’ the Finals yesterday?  Who cares.  We hope the NBA relocates to communist China where they belong.  F**k them!
  64. 2020 Monday F: Speaking of the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 39,594,267 confirmed cases, +326,346, 1,077,836, confirmed deaths, +4,056, and 26,116,750 confirmed recoveries, +192,996.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 7,877,192 confirmed cases, up 27,880 from yesterday’s reporting, 218,292 confirmed deaths, UP 187, and 5,028,717 confirmed recoveries, UP 4,410.  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: 858,648 confirmed cases, 16,591 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,633 confirmed cases, 169 confirmed deaths, and 10,750 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 97,731 confirmed cases, 2,290 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Louisiana- currently, they have 174,647 confirmed cases, 5,669 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor John Bel Edwards for not reporting recoveries; that ain’t right.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 293,553 confirmed cases, 2,016 confirmed deaths, and 238,643 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Bangladesh: they have 379,738 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 5,555 confirmed deaths and 294,391 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Monday G: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,837.52, UP 250.62 points (+0.88%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,876.26, UP 296.31 points (+2.56%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,534.22, UP 57.09 points (+1.64%).  Price of GOLD: $1,928.70 per troy oz., -0.20 (-0.01%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $25.26 per troy oz., -0.016 (-0.06%).  Price of PLATINUM: $882.00 per troy oz., +5.70 (+0.56%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,405.00 per troy oz., -4.00 (-0.17%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.06 per #, 0.00 (0.00%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.54, +0.11 (+0.28%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.75 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.80 Afghan afghani.
  66. 2020 Monday I: Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley breaks with the commander-in-chief President Donald J. Trump by saying HE will decide on the number of troops to leave in Afghanistan.  This is shocking and demonstrates that Gen. Milley cares more about politics and the Democrats’ goal of keeping never-ending wars continuing into infinity.  The time is coming when following the November Elections and a Trump and GOP victory for the president to sack Milley, FBI Director Chris Wray, and CIA Director Gina Haspel.  These three people are working against the president and the American people.  It must end NOW.
  67. 2020 Monday J:  Thanks for joining us today; you know more is to come and as we approach Election Day- perhaps one of the worst in the history of the nation due to the scurrilous activities of the Chi-Coms and their patsies in the Democratic Party- because you know more is coming so stay tuned.

#TT001.1c Cellophane #3 12-25-2019 (400)

The Troggs returned with No. 3, “Cellophane,” on March 08, 1967, once again, another powerful rocker to be sure. The band featured Reg Presley (vocals), Chris Britton (guitars/backing vocals), Pete Staples (bass/backing vocals), and Ronnie Bond (drums). This band was red hot in its day and the cover tunes mixed with some originals were absolutely amazing. One of the great unsung bands of its time when one considers the Beatles, the Yardbirds, the Stones, the Kinks, the Who, the Hollies, Them, and the Zombies, the Troggs should be right up there with them in that pantheon of rock music greats. Please, use the link and visit Amazon.com so you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.
