171. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JUNE 20, 2022

2008 Friday: Like poor Tibet, Nepal also is coming under the sway of the Chi-Coms which leads to massive protests in front of the Chi-Com embassy. At least 700 Tibetans were there among the crowd, all of whom were arrested with three being slapped with charges of ‘anti-Chi-Com activities.’ Folks, who runs Nepal? The government of that nation or Beijing? The world knows the answer.

  25. 1923 Wednesday: France announced it would seize the Rhineland to help Germany pay its debts from World War I.  This would be yet another massive slap in the face to the German people that would open their ears to the song of Adolf Hitler.  Stupid, stupid policy.

  28. 1941 Friday: The U.S. military replaced the Army Air Corps with the U.S. Army Air Forces.  In 1947, the military abolished the Air Corps by creating the United States Air Forces.  Elsewhere, the Germans and their Axis allies in Eastern Europe are preparing to launch the largest land invasion in the history of the world in two days.  Air crews are receiving their briefings, artillery targets are being registered, and the 1.5 million troops ready to cross the frontier into the Soviet Union are enjoying their final days of rest.  War is coming and the Soviets are dozing on the other side of the border.
  29. 1942 Saturday: The Afrika Korps conquers Tobruk in North Africa.  Meanwhile, Nazi Adolf Eichmann announces the deportation of Dutch Jews.  On the Eastern Front, heavy fighting continues around the Crimean fortress city of Sebastopol as German and Rumanian troops continue fighting to batter their way into the city.  Farther east, the road to Stalingrad is underway as the German spring and summer offensive is moving south with growing momentum.

  32. 1944 Tuesday: The Nazis begin the mass extermination of all Jews at Auschwitz Death Camp.  Meanwhile, the Allies are advancing on all fronts in Europe.  On the Leningrad Front, the Soviets are advancing while the Allies are advancing in France and Italy.  Fighting is fierce.  Elsewhere during World War II, Japanese naval forces retreated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea after suffering heavy losses to the American fleet.  On Saipan, American forces continue battering the Japanese defenders who cling tenaciously to every scrap of geography.  It is victory or it’s death for them.

  34. 1946 Thursday: The Big Four- the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union agree to begin the gradual withdrawal of Allied occupation forces from Italy.  The Soviets also agree to withdraw their troops from Bulgaria which although on the side of the Axis during World War II did not participate in Operation Barbarossa and also have traditionally been a Russian ally.  Still, they will be a part of the communist bloc.  It is what it is…

  58. 2009 Saturday: As the Arab Spring continues growing across the Muslim world, riot police in Tehran are finding their hands full with mobs of protesters demanding changes in their dictatorial regime.  This is ONE country that new President Barack Hussein Obama won’t provide help.  Elsewhere, jihadists near Kirkuk, Iraq, get lucky with a suicide bombing that propels 67 people up to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving at least another 200 in varying stages of suffering.  That’s the ‘religion of peace’ for you…
  59. 2010 Sunday: The Chicago Journal reports it’s been a busy weekend in President Barack Hussein Obama’s adopted hometown of the Windy City what with 40 people shot and seven of them dead.  Halfway across the world, similar issues are occurring in central Baghdad what with two car bombings ejecting at least 26 passersby up to meet with Allah sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving another 53 in varying stages of distress.
  60. 2011 Monday: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers grants private companies the right to create new website domains and suffixes.  Elsewhere, the Anglican Church in England considers permitting openly gay clergy members to become bishops.  Well.  Elsewhere, sectarian clashes break out in East Belfast, Northern Ireland, leading to numerous people being trucked off to the hospital and others to the hoosegow.

  62. 2013 Thursday: Instagram offers its users the ability to upload videos to its service.  Elsewhere, the Committee on the Rights of the Child accuses E-V-I-L Israeli soldiers of torturing Palestinian children and using the poor little bastards as human shields.  (Note- what a crock of crap!).  Elsewhere, in the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 4 games to 3 by a final score of 95-88 successfully defending their title from the previous year.  Knuckle-dragging cretin LeBron James is declared the MVP for the second year in a row.
  63. 2014 Friday: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiates a 7-day cease-fire, allowing troops to defend themselves but not to attack; during the cease-fire, separatists can turn in weapons and receive amnesty; so far, rebels have rejected the offer.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration rushes 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help that government’s forces battle the ISIS thugs in the oil-refining city of Baiji.   Light these scum-sucking bastards UP.
  64. 2015 Saturday: After white racist Dylann Storm Roof murders nine African Americans at the church in South Carolina earlier in the week, mass protests break out demanding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Capitol building.   Meanwhile, in southern Pakistan, a heat wave peaks killing at least 2,000 people from heat stroke and dehydration.   Elsewhere, in Japan, one-thousand female robots named “Pepper” sell out in under one minute at $1,600 per unit; so says creator SoftBank Robotics Corp.
  65. 2016 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court- noting that it has already reviewed other such bans on ‘assault weapons’ (ALL weapons are ‘assault weapons’ whether they be a gun or a screwdriver or even fists)- refuses to hear other states’ bans such as Connecticut and New York.  What we need is a universal permit to carry arms, both out in the open and concealed.  Cleansing the nation of ‘gun-free zones’ would also enhance the safety of every American.  Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that the number is higher than ever what with endless wars, climate disasters, and economic impoverishment: 65.3 million people (which the Democrats want to bring to the U.S.)
  66. 2017 Tuesday: Following his arrest for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods checks into a rehab clinic to deal with his pain medication dependency and his ongoing sleep disorders.   Elsewhere, as outrage continues to grow over the death of 22-year-old American tourist Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean jailers, Young Pioneers Tours, the firm taking foreigners into the hellhole known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea says it ‘won’t be taking any other Americans into that godforsaken country as the risk is simply too high.’  (Note- if you remember, young Mr. Warmbier visited the nation, removed a poster from a hotel room wall for a souvenir and then underwent arrest, a bulls**t trial, imprisonment, and just before he died, Kim Jong Un sent his catatonic body home to his parents).
  67. 2018 Wednesday: Bowing to pressure from his political enemies and armies of wailing illegal aliens, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order ending separation of families at the border, a policy that began under the previous administration but which no one conveniently remembers.   Meanwhile (and this is a good one!), the Chi-Coms express their regrets that the United States is withdrawing from the bulls**t U.N. Human Rights Council.  With dictators, thugs, criminals, and communists making up its membership, the organization is little more than a joke.
  68. 2019 Thursday: Leader of communist China, Xi Jinping, travels to North Korea to visit with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, the first Chinese leader to travel to the S-hole country in 14 years.  In other news, the Iranians commit an overt act of war when their military shoots down a U.S. surveillance drone which they claim trespassed into their airspace.  Almost immediately, the military-industrial-political complex in the United States as well as Democrats and pro-war RINOs begin banging the drum for President Donald J. Trump to launch yet another unnecessary Middle Eastern war.  Wow.
  69. 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump kicked off his official 2020 re-election bid with a massive rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  What a barn burner, he seems unstoppable.  Moving on, here are today’s stats for the Xi Jinping special Wuhan bat flu virus, first the globe: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 762 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 640 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for the CHOP state, Washington: 28,163 confirmed cases, 1,265 confirmed deaths, but sadly, like California, moron Gov. Jay Inslee will NOT REPORT the number of confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army would immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor.  The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent.  Good for you, President al-Sissi!
  71. 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant.  Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side.  He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army.  It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination.  Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum.  This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November.  VOTE TRUMP!
  72. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 178,960,779 confirmed cases, +14,417, 3,875,601 confirmed deaths, +8,968 and 163,779,820 confirmed recoveries, +386,650.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,401,712 confirmed cases, UP 8,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 617,083 confirmed deaths, UP 166, [xiii] and 28,694,843 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,439.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,177 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 160,472 deaths

  77. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.229 per gallon, $2.947 in Florida, $3.987 in Hawaii, and $3.633 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let’s look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.880.  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- Argentina: $3.833 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,429,862,051,238 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiv]
  78. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #89 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of America’s number one problem and to have yet shown up for a single day on the job.  Ah, well, Benny Johnson of Newsmax says that Customs and Border Patrol has arrested numerous terrorists on the terrorist watchlist as well as all sorts of criminals- especially sexual criminals- and yet more continue coming.  In other news we believe is related to the border, a Houston deputy’s home was invaded in a pre-dawn assault and his wife and 4-year-old stepdaughter shot and seriously wounded by unknown perps.  A week or so ago, news appeared that said the cartels were going to target the homes and families of Lone Star State law enforcement officers.   Thank you, Joe “F**king” Biden.
  79. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the mess, Rep. August Pfluger, R-TX 11th congressional district, says that ‘illegal aliens are overrunning the 29 inland counties he represents.’  (Note- we urge Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, to put former Sheriff Joe Arpaio in charge of all holding pens for the illegal aliens).  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, is seeking to join Florida and Idaho in sending law enforcement to help aid Arizona and Texas in repelling the illegal alien invasion.  Good.  Every RED STATE governor must send troops to defend the country.  This is akin to the emergency that surrounded the Alamo, only this time, the GOOD GUYS are NOT going to lose to the barbarians.
  80. 2021 Sunday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says the ‘world powers must wake up to the dangers of the Iran nuclear deal.’
  81. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the Democrats’ ‘election reform bill’ is the ‘largest power grab in the history of the United States.’  Next, the Des Moines Register reports the results of a new poll: 64-percent of Iowans would like to see Senator Chuck Grassley retire instead of running for another term.  In other political news, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is slapping back at Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and some Fake News media outlets for discounting COVID-19 treatments such as hydroxychloroquine.  Most of the Americans who ‘succumbed’ to the disease most likely wouldn’t have provided they’d been given Plaquenil® at the first signs of the Wuhan lab-concocted bat virus.
  82. 2021 Sunday J: Political News II– The person challenging Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is a New York attorney, Matthew Putorti.  Previous to this, he was a ‘registered foreign agent for the jihadist state of Qatar.’  Wow.  Where do the Democrats uncover scumbags such as this?
  83. 2021 Sunday K: Miscellaneous News I– Washington state Native Americans are carting a 5,000-pound, hand-carved totem pole across the United States, to arrive in Washington, D.C., sometime in July where it will be on display throughout the summer.  The goal is to bring greater awareness to the protection of sacred lands to the indigenous peoples of the United States.
  84. 2021 Sunday L: Economic News– Economist Stephen Moore says that the Federal Reserve is way behind the curve on rising inflation which some experts claim is at or near 12-percent.  This is a tax on EVERYONE including those least equipped to pay for it.
  85. 2022 Monday: Folks, today is Sunday, Father’s Day Sunday, let’s hope it’s a slow news day as all the baby mamas will bring all their bastard brats to meet their daddies doing time in America’s hoosegows, today.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album came out on June 12, 1983: “Rarities.”  Sooner or later, every band still performing who began in the early 1960s compiled a collection of so-called ‘rarities,’ thus we have this fabulous compendium of surf, sun, and fun music.  So, what do we have here?  Well, we begin with the Lennon-McCartney classic, “With a Little Help from My Friends,” followed by the Box Tops classic, “The Letter.”  After that, we have an alternate take of Stevie Wonder’s “I Was Made to Love Her,” followed by Brian Wilson’s “You’re Welcome.”  After that, we have “The Lord’s Prayer,” followed by “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” an alternate take, followed by a Dennis Wilson-penned tune, “Celebrate the News.”  We have an alternate version of “Good Vibrations” and gobs of other glorious tunes all lovingly compiled from the archives of this legendary group such as “Land Ahoy,” a live version of “All I Want to Do,” and several other unique and enjoyable cuts.  Seek this one out and add it to your daily playlist of the absolute best in summertime music.  You will be glad you did.

[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96.     In Fijian Dollar, one greenback equals 2.02 and in French Pacific Franc, a buck equals 98.00 and in Gambian Dalasi, one dollar equals 50.25 of theirs.[xii]        
  59. 2021 Saturday 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.215 per gallon, $2.855 in Florida, $3.954 in Hawaii, and $3.597 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Iowa: $2.881.  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- Panama: $3.374 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,369,641,789,513 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.  The third nation owning much of our debt is Brazil- they own $300 billion.[xvi]
  60. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #75 for the gibbering hyena- the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and boy, what a ‘czar’ she’s been- not shown up once to see just how insane things have become there, not to give us her customary high-pitched cackle to show she’s on the job.  WTF!  Meanwhile, One American News shared the latest border stats with its viewers today.  Are we ready?  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day Alone for caring for all these illegal aliens: $584,766,784, all of which is taxpayer money.  Next- (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for all these illegal aliens- $170,447,814,656, all of which again belongs to the taxpayers.  Imagine if they gave the descendants of slaves in this country the money as reparations instead of squandering it upon ILLEGAL ALIENS?  This is insane.  Next, (3) Number of Illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 1,746,953.  Round them up and deport them as fast as they flow in.  Finally, (4) Total Number of Illegals ESTIMATED to be in the U.S.: 35,746,953.  Since 2009, we have estimated the number at 35-50 million whereas now, we believe it is closer to 60-75 million.   These illegals suck away at the life’s blood of the American taxpayers, suck up our benefits, lower wages, drive up the costs of rents, overrun our hospitals, f**k up our schools, and commit millions of crimes.  Time to scoop them up and deport ALL of them NOW.
  61. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– NBC News is beginning to see the light (it must be killing them) and is refuting the notion that the southern border is closed, the story the Biden regime continues to pedal.  Speaking of the Biden regime, the Bidenistas in the White House and at the Department of Homeland Security have a new APP with which to enable the legions of illegal aliens to swamp across our southern frontier.  And you ask are the Bidenistas working on behalf of the Chi-Coms, or aren’t they?  The answer seems to speak for itself. 
  62. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Chi-Coms released Chow Hang Tung from the hoosegow.  She is one of the organizers of the commemoration of Tiananmen Square 1989 event.  Like the Turks hate talking about the Armenian Genocide, so, too, do the Chi-Coms hate talking about the massacre of more than 10,000-11,000 pro-democracy protesters (much less the extermination of the Uighurs, the Tibetans, and non-Han minorities).  Meanwhile, U.S. vaccine supplies arrive in South Korea.  Good.  Send them more and send some to the NORCs, too.  We don’t want them, especially not that Johnson & Johnson crap.  (Note to date, more than 4,200 people have died because of vaccine complications.  Any other drug on the market would already be pulled.  We favor Hydroxychloroquine as a preventative- f**k Neil Cavuto).  Elsewhere, after Twitter shut down the president of Nigeria- Muhammadu Buhari- for one of his tweets, Nigeria shut down Twitter.  That is all that needs to be done.  SHUT THEM DOWN.
  63. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Speaking of the Chi-Vi, things continue getting worse for Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says, “Joe Biden should follow the science and fire Dr. Fauci.”  Amen.  Next, Rep. Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Tony Fauci must testify before Congress now that his emails have exposed him.’  Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is demanding that “Phony Tony” resign NOW.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, now that he has called out Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci is once again receiving death threats from his unenlightened, ignorant enemies.  
  64. 2021 Saturday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– A bipartisan group of lawmakers are urging Joe Biden to begin pulling out our Afghan allies as the handover to the Afghan government continues.  We know what is going to happen there; only it will be worse than what befell the South Vietnamese.  Next, a group of Bidenistas met with their Israeli Defense Forces and guaranteed they would help defend the Jewish state.  We hope so.  In other anti-Joe Biden news, the state of Arizona is growing increasingly resistant to any talk of the Biden regime raising federal income taxes.  Good.  We must fight them on land, sea, in the air, and underground.   Speaking of Biden’s policies, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says that ‘Joe’s policies are killing the United States.’
  65. 2021 Saturday K: Political News I– Governor Steve Sisolak, D-NV, signed a bill into law today making MAIL-IN voting the law of the state.  (Note- we must play by their own game if we are to crush these scumbags).  Next, that ignorant, self-important a-hole- CNN’s Jake Tapper- swears that he will blacklist ANY REPUBLICAN from appearing on his show who refuses to admit that Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election.  (Note- we guess he’s going to have Liz Cheney and the other losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump on his show around the clock).   
  66. 2021 Saturday L: Political News II– The U.S. Department of Justice claims that it will NO longer seize the phone records of journalists.  (Note- this was frequent practice under the Obama-Biden regime for eight years- why would it change now?  Of course, they are going to continue seizing records).  In other crazy news, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen told leaders of the G7 to continue spending and spending, she says inflation will pass.  How the hell did this loser ever run the Fed?  This is insane.   Speaking of the G7, if the Biden regime can convince them to give him his GLOBAL CORPORATE TAX, he will get a ‘win.’  That is flipping crazy.   (Note- do not count President Donald J. Trump out.  Ever).  
  67. 2021 Saturday M: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump addressed more than one-thousand attendees at the North Carolina GOP Convention this evening and what a speech.  The Dems are going to wish they had not stolen the election because terrible things are coming their way.  We also learned that Lara Trump won’t be seeking the U.S. Senate seat of outgoing RINO Richard Burr.  She has two young kids- 1- and- 3-years-old who need their mother more than she needs politics.  President Trump endorsed Rep. Ted Budd, R-NC 13th congressional district, to succeed Senator Burr.  Elsewhere, a federal judge in California has tossed the three decades-plus ban on so-called ‘assault weapons,’ causing Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to go ballistic.  Perhaps it was the tossing of his beloved ban that led him to say ‘the state is NOT reopening on June 15 as the little closet cross-dresser promised.  Wow.
  68. 2021 Saturday N: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Within 24 hours, conservatives raised $100,000 for Rep. Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio-Cortez’s pobrecita abuela in Puerto Rico.  As you know, “The Fly” was crying yesterday about the condition of her poor little abuela’s house in Puerto Rico, doing what good communists do and that is to blame everyone else for their own problems.  Well, AOC must be embarrassed, thus she told her abuela ‘you cannot take this money, it will humiliate me.’  Poor abuela said today she ‘refuses to accept the money because it comes with onerous strings.’  What a flipping loser but her granddaughter, the Fly, is the real embarrassment, a national embarrassment.  Vote her out in 2022 along with the rest of the Squad.
  69. 2021 Saturday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3566 with a $52 million pot on the line: 04, 07, 08, 32, 45, and Mega 14.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #852 with a $286 million pot on the line. 44, 52, 54, 64, 69, and Powerball 26.  The California Lottery site is having technical issues tonight… first, here are the Super Lotto winners- out of 131,098 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $23,629 apiece.  One ticket was sold at (1) Rimpau Smoke Shop in Corona, CA 92881 and the second at (2) Super 1 Cigarette in Visalia, CA 93277.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball: out of 97,904 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,921 apiece.
  70. 2021 Saturday P: Ah, it’s the weekend, let’s hope it’s a slow news day…oh, wait!  President Donald J. Trump is speaking at the North Carolina GOP Convention in Greenville this evening.  That is going to send a shiver of cold fear down the backs of the Bidenistas and the Chi-Coms…
  71. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

A year later, the Beach Boys’ record label did it again: compiled another two LP fantastic collection of the band’s crème de la crème from the same time period as the preceding album we promoted, “Endless Summer.”  “Spirit of America” hit record store shelves on April 14, 1975, and had additional tunes culled from the archives including some B-sides such as the much-beloved “Breakaway.”  Friends, if you are new to the Beach Boys and have not gotten your fill yet or if you are a new fan in a new age, we hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Everyone will celebrate listening to these timeless songs of summer fun, dozing in the sand, hanging with the chicks (sexist, we know, but we don’t give a flying f**k), riding hot rods, motorcycles, and everything else patriotic American young people loved doing.  Seek this album out and make it a part of your daily playlist- you will be so glad you did.

We know that hydroxychloroquine is one of the best anti-malarial drugs in use on the African continent and in 2020, it’s interesting to note that a country such as Uganda that has long used this extremely low-cost drug the deaths in 2020 from COVID-19 are almost nonexistent. Elsewhere, in Burkina Faso, security guards launch a coup taking President Michel Kafando and other ranking government officials into custody.
  50. 2016 Friday: Democracy Now reports that Donald Trump continues to dis President Barack Hussein Obama by suggesting that the 44th president was not born in the United States. Folks, millions of Americans, and millions more around the planet do not believe Obama[v] was born in the U.S. so WTF? Meanwhile, following a campaign rally in North Carolina the previous day, Hillary Clinton minimizes her public appearances. What is wrong with this woman?
  51. 2017 Saturday: Tropical Storm Maria, which would batter the Caribbean as a powerful hurricane, formed in the Atlantic. Elsewhere, California lawmakers voted to move the state’s presidential primary up by about three months to March, a move that would force candidates to mount expensive campaigns earlier.
  52. 2018 Sunday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes sets an NFL record with 10 touchdown passes in the first two games of the regular season, lighting up the Steelers’ secondary with six touchdown passes for a road win of 42-37. Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that potential U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh committed sexual assault in the 1980s when he was a young man, charges since proven to be FALSE.
  53. 2019 Monday:  The New York Times publishes a story in which, it charges the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as being the most expensive in the world that each prisoner costs the taxpayers $13 million annually. Meanwhile, On This Day reports that the personal information of every citizen in Ecuador was found online on an unsecured server. Go figure.
  54. 2020 Wednesday: Warned ahead of time that his book about his time in the Trump administration contained classified information, former National Security Advisor John Bolton finds himself- along with his publisher and support staff- finds himself under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice. We told you so, John! Meanwhile, America’s insurance companies announce that this year’s ongoing ‘peaceful protests,’ aka rioting, looting, arson, rape, and murder- will be the costliest in U.S. history, claims coming in between $1-2 billion. Thank you, Democrats, thank you, Marxist-Socialist thugs. Elsewhere, pot-smoking New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- struggling to remain lucid- announces that HE and his mayoral staff of at least 500 workers will go on furlough for two weeks, beginning in October. Dude, you do nothing anyway but thanks for allowing the city to hold onto your $250,000 annual salary.
  55. 2020 Wednesday A: In Austin, Texas, two construction cranes collide into one another killing no one but injuring at least 22 people on the ground. Illegal aliens at the controls? It is Texas, after all. Meanwhile, Hurricane Sally, a Cat 1 storm, continues assaulting the coastlines of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. Rains are heavy, storm surges strong, and flooding rampant. Elsewhere, NFL ratings are in a nosedive, the opening week’s ratings coming in with a 20-percent or more drop in viewership. Every game save the New Orleans Saints-Tampa Bay Buccaneers was below normal. Don’t expect it to get any better anytime soon, the league’s owners MUST- we repeat, MUST- terminate the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell and send this virtue-signaling POS packing and then must regain control of the players and enforce the rules. You remember ratings were DOWN in 2016 and were it not for Donald Trump, they would have continued tanking. This is your second chance, NFL team owners, and if you blow it this time, we expect America’s favorite sport will be as popular as midget mud wrestling. Don’t blow it. Speaking of football, the BIG 10 says it is going to return to playing games. Congratulations!
  56. 2020 Wednesday B: Senate Minority Leader and knuckle-dragger Sen. Chuck Schumer wants the head of Health and Human Services boss Alex Azar’s head over some bogus charge concerning the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever Bat Flu. Chuck- STFU. Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics polling average shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden with a lead of 49-percent to 44.7-percent over Trump. Wow. You go, Joe, you go! Next, along the west coast, out-of-control wildfires continue to burn acres and take lives yet in our northern neighbor, Canada, the wildfire season is way, way down thanks to proper forest management. Democrats, do NOT think we won’t remember who is responsible for all the ills come November or in November 2022, November 2024 and onward. YOU will pay. Finally, last night, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel had Chinese Virus Crisis whistleblower, Dr. Li-Meng Yan on his program and she told the host that Beijing knew the facts concerning the Wuhan Flu and that they INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED IT TO ESCAPE. It is interesting to note that famed bastion of free speech, Twitter (yeah, right), silenced the doctor’s account on September 15. My, my, me!
  57. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee has issued subpoenas to former CIA director John Brennan, former National Security advisor James Clapper, and former FBI director James “The Saint” Comey. Good. Bring them in and bust their balls on live TV! Elsewhere, radio talk show king, Rush Limbaugh, reports today on his program that new polling shows that in strife-torn cities and towns across the country, voters favor Donald Trump by a 2-1 margin in November. Ooops! Not good for the Democrats!
  58. 2020 Wednesday D: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 29,689,922 confirmed cases, UP by 281,498 cases, 937,543 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,376 deaths, and 20,152,872 confirmed recoveries, UP by 201,786 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,704,125 confirmed cases, UP by 29,165 new cases, 199,297 confirmed deaths, UP by 912 new deaths, and 3,636,578 confirmed recoveries, UP by 21,091 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers). Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 170,465 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 122,785 confirmed recoveries.
  59. 2020 Wednesday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 771,288 confirmed cases, 14,648 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,951 confirmed cases, 100 confirmed deaths, and 3,885 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 84,320 confirmed cases, 2,107 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let’s take a look at one more state, Idaho: 35,984 confirmed number of cases, 420 confirmed deaths, but no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Brad Little for acting like a Democrat and remaining mum on this figure.
  60. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s BIG Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,032.38, UP 36.78 points (+0.13%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,050.47, DOWN 139.85 points (-1.25%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,385.49, DOWN 15.71 points (-0.46%). The price of GOLD is $1,967.20 per troy oz., -3.30 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $27.32 per troy ounce, -0.156 (-0.57%). The price of PLATINUM is $972.80 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.07%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, 0.00 (0.00%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,399.00 per troy oz, -7.50 (-0.31%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.17 per barrel, +0.01 (+0.02%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.75 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.03.
  61. 2020 Wednesday G:  President Donald J. Trump- speaking from the White House today- said that he believes a vaccine will be available to combat the Wuhan Virus sometime in October. Earlier in the day, CDC Director Robert Redfield said that ‘masks are good’ and that ‘he was not as optimistic about a vaccine before late 2021.’  We shall see. However, Dr. Scott Atlas says 100 million doses should be available by the end of 2020. Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says his legal advisors have told him that he could probably issue a nationwide mask mandate via executive order. Joe: NOT enough prisons to hold everyone who will not obey the bull crap order. Better to make hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, available to ALL Americans.
  62. 2020 Wednesday H: Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice charges five Chi-Com hackers with attempting to hack into more than 100 sites including social media and government. Currently, law enforcement is tracking these scalawags down. Next, President Trump reverses himself from an earlier stance and says that limited briefings on U.S. elections security will be provided to key members of Congress. As everyone knows, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, the Iranians, the Cubans, the North Koreans, the Venezuelans, everyone with an ax to grind against the U.S. is going to attempt changing U.S. election results in November as they always do. When Barack Hussein Obama was president, he said influencing an election one way or another was nearly impossible so why would things be any different now?
  63. 2021 Thursday:  Stick around- we are halfway through our heavy work week…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Over the course of Jethro Tull’s lengthy lifespan, Jethro Tull has delivered loads of performances, most of which have ended up in bootleg form over the decades. Today, we have “Hard Times of Old England,” (June 05, 2021), that presents one famed live show for the fans. The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention) Gerry Conway (drums and percussion from Fairport Convention), and Peter John Vettese (keyboards, synthesizers, and backing vocals). The show is an excellent radio broadcast out of Germany during the “The Broadsword and the Beast” tour. If you want to hear the band at the peak of its popularity, this is a good album with which to do it as you get the crème de la crème of the early 1970s. We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[iv] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  24. 1923 Wednesday: France announced it would seize the Rhineland to help Germany pay its debts from World War I.  This would be yet another massive slap in the face to the German people that would open their ears to the song of Adolf Hitler.  Stupid, stupid policy.

  27. 1941 Friday: The U.S. military replaced the Army Air Corps with the U.S. Army Air Forces.  In 1947, the military abolished the Air Corps by creating the United States Air Forces.  Elsewhere, the Germans and their Axis allies in Eastern Europe are preparing to launch the largest land invasion in the history of the world in two days.  Air crews are receiving their briefings, artillery targets are being registered, and the 1.5 million troops ready to cross the frontier into the Soviet Union are enjoying their final days of rest.  War is coming and the Soviets are dozing on the other side of the border.

  30. 1944 Tuesday: The Nazis begin the mass extermination of all Jews at Auschwitz Death Camp.  Meanwhile, the Allies are advancing on all fronts in Europe.  On the Leningrad Front, the Soviets are advancing while the Allies are advancing in France and Italy.  Fighting is fierce.  Elsewhere during World War II, Japanese naval forces retreated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea after suffering heavy losses to the American fleet.  On Saipan, American forces continue battering the Japanese defenders who cling tenaciously to every scrap of geography.  It is victory or it’s death for them.
  31. 1945 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the fights for Okinawa, the Philippines, and Borneo.  Meanwhile, a U.S. carrier force is softening up the Imperial Japanese forces clinging to Wake Island, one of the first places to fall to Japan shortly after the war began.  The Japanese have been sidelined here as recapturing the island did not fit in the main war plan of taking the fight TO JAPAN so the Japanese troops defending Wake are in dire straits.
  32. 1946 Thursday: The Big Four- the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union agree to begin the gradual withdrawal of Allied occupation forces from Italy.  The Soviets also agree to withdraw their troops from Bulgaria which although on the side of the Axis during World War II did not participate in Operation Barbarossa and also have traditionally been a Russian ally.  Still, they will be a part of the communist bloc.  It is what it is…
  33. 1947 Friday: Mob hitmen shot Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel dead at the Beverly Hills mansion of his girlfriend, Virginia Hill, apparently at the order of Mob associates.  Meanwhile, President Harry Truman vetoes the Taft-Hartley Act.

  44. 1969 Friday: Georges Pompidou took the oath of office as the president of France.  Meanwhile, at the Newport ’69 Jazz Festival, Jimi Hendrix[iv] appears for a fee of $120,000.  At least 150,000 people attended the event.

Simpson for the murders of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.  Before the judge, he pleaded not guilty to the crime.  Elsewhere, former airman Dean Allen Mellberg went on a shooting rampage at Fairchild Air Force Base near Spokane, Washington, killing four people and wounding 22 others before being killed by a military police sharpshooter.

  54. 2008 Friday: Like poor Tibet, Nepal also is coming under the sway of the Chi-Coms which leads to massive protests in front of the Chi-Com embassy.  At least 700 Tibetans were there among the crowd, all of whom were arrested with three being slapped with charges of ‘anti-Chi-Com activities.’  Folks, who runs Nepal?  The government of that nation or Beijing?  I think the world knows the answer.
  55. 2009 Saturday: As the Arab Spring continues growing across the Muslim world, riot police in Tehran are finding their hands full with mobs of protesters demanding changes in their dictatorial regime.  This is ONE country that new President Barack Hussein Obama won’t provide help.  Elsewhere, jihadists near Kirkuk, Iraq, get lucky with a suicide bombing that propels 67 people up to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving at least another 200 in varying stages of suffering.  That’s the ‘religion of peace’ for you…
  56. 2010 Sunday: The Chicago Journal reports it’s been a busy weekend in President Barack Hussein Obama’s adopted hometown of the Windy City what with 40 people shot and seven of them dead.  Halfway across the world, similar issues are occurring in central Baghdad what with two car bombings ejecting at least 26 passersby up to meet with Allah sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving another 53 in varying stages of distress.
  57. 2011 Monday: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers grants private companies the right to create new website domains and suffixes.  Elsewhere, the Anglican Church in England considers permitting openly gay clergy members to become bishops.  Well.  Elsewhere, sectarian clashes break out in East Belfast, Northern Ireland, leading to numerous people being trucked off to the hospital and others to the hoosegow.
  58. 2012 Wednesday: Hospital authorities remove former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak–reported to be in a coma–from life support.  Meanwhile, a Syrian fighter pilot lands in Jordan and the pilot seeks asylum from the ongoing civil war.  Elsewhere, as southern Israel continues to brace under an ongoing barrage of (Iranian) rockets from the Palestinians, the Israeli air force begins to carry out sustained strikes on Hamas (and Iranian) targets in the region.
  59. 2013 Thursday: Instagram offers its users the ability to upload videos to its service.  Elsewhere, the Committee on the Rights of the Child accuses E-V-I-L Israeli soldiers of torturing Palestinian children and using the poor little bastards as human shields.  (Note- what a crock of crap!).  Elsewhere, the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 4 games to 3 by a final score of 95-88 successfully defending their title from the previous year.  Knuckle-dragging cretin LeBron James is declared the MVP for the second year in a row.
  60. 2014 Friday: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiates a 7-day cease-fire, allowing troops to defend themselves but not to attack; during the cease-fire, separatists can turn in weapons and receive amnesty; so far, rebels have rejected the offer.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration rushes 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help that government’s forces battle the ISIS thugs in the oil-refining city of Baiji.   Light these scum-sucking bastards UP.
  61. 2015 Saturday: After white racist Dylann Storm Roof murders nine African Americans at the church in South Carolina earlier in the week, mass protests break out demanding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Capitol building.   Meanwhile, in southern Pakistan, a heat wave peaks killing at least 2,000 people from heat stroke and dehydration.   Elsewhere, in Japan, one-thousand female robots named “Pepper” sell out in under one minute at $1,600 per unit; so says creator SoftBank Robotics Corp.
  62. 2016 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court- noting that it has already reviewed other such bans on ‘assault weapons’ (ALL weapons are ‘assault weapons’ whether they be a gun or a screwdriver or even fists)- refuses to hear other states’ bans such as Connecticut and New York.  What we need is a universal permit to carry arms, both out in the open and concealed.  Cleansing the nation of ‘gun-free zones’ would also enhance the safety of every American.  Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that the number is higher than ever what with endless wars, climate disasters, and economic impoverishment: 65.3 million people (which the Democrats want to bring to the U.S.)
  63. 2017 Tuesday: Following his arrest for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods checks into a rehab clinic to deal with his pain medication dependency and his ongoing sleep disorders.   Elsewhere, as outrage continues to grow over the death of 22-year-old American tourist Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean jailers, Young Pioneers Tours, the firm taking foreigners into the hellhole known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea says it ‘won’t be taking any other Americans into that godforsaken country as the risk is simply too high.’  (Note- if you remember, young Mr. Warmbier visited the nation, removed a poster from a hotel room wall for a souvenir and then underwent arrest, a bulls**t trial, imprisonment, and just before he died, Kim Jong Un sent his catatonic body home to his parents).
  64. 2018 Wednesday: Bowing to pressure from his political enemies and armies of wailing illegal aliens, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order ending separation of families at the border, a policy that began under the previous administration but which no one conveniently remembers.   Meanwhile (and this is a good one!), the Chi-Coms express their regrets that the United States is withdrawing from the bulls**t U.N. Human Rights Council.  With dictators, thugs, criminals, and communists making up its membership, the organization is little more than a joke.
  65. 2019 Thursday: Leader of communist China, Xi Jinping, travels to North Korea to visit with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, the first Chinese leader to travel to the S-hole country in 14 years.  In other news, the Iranians commit an overt act of war when their military shoots down a U.S. surveillance drone which they claim trespassed into their airspace.  Almost immediately, the military-industrial-political complex in the United States as well as Democrats and pro-war RINOs begin banging the drum for President Donald J. Trump to launch yet another unnecessary Middle Eastern war.  Wow.
  66. 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump kicked off his official 2020 re-election bid with a massive rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  What a barn burner, he seems unstoppable.  Moving on, here are today’s stats for the Xi Jinping special Wuhan bat flu virus, first the globe: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 762 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 640 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for the CHOP state, Washington: 28,163 confirmed cases, 1,265 confirmed deaths, but sadly, like California, moron Gov. Jay Inslee will NOT REPORT the number of confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army would immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor.  The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent.  Good for you, President al-Sissi!
  68. 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant.  Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side.  He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army.  It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination.  Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum.  This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November.  VOTE TRUMP!
  69. 2021 Sunday: Folks, today is Sunday, Father’s Day Sunday, let’s hope it’s a slow news day as all the baby mamas will bring all their bastard brats to meet their daddies doing time in America’s hoosegows, today.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Ian Anderson finally got the record label to give him a solo project without forcing him to label it a ‘Jethro Tull’ album.  “Walk into Light” came out on December 05, 1983 and it was a two-man band: Ian Anderson (all instruments) and Peter John Vettese (keyboards, synthesizers, and backing vocals).  Fans enjoy the mellow sounds and smooth flow of music which as always sparkles and shines with Anderson’s wit.  He and Vettese co-wrote many of the tracks so in many ways, it is more a collaborative album than it is a ‘solo effort.’  We hope everyone will seek this one out and consider adding it to your growing record collection- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump confirms he is seeking a $2 billion arms deal including the main U.S. battle tank- the M1A1- as well as a restock on all other offensive weapons. Beijing goes ballistic and expresses their immense displeasure that the American running dogs would do such a horrible thing as to sell weapons to a free and independent country. (Note- a year later, it would appear they paid us back with COVID-19…well, later this year. Coincidence? Don’t count on it).

  49. 2020 Friday: The economic news for the month of May is phenomenal with an increase of 2,509,000 new jobs and a decrease in unemployment to 13.3-percent.  The DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 27,110.98, +829.16 (3.15%); the NASDAQ closed at 9,814.08, +198.268 (2.06%), and the S&P closed at 3,193.93, +81.58 (2.62%). Hate to say it but the Democrats are shocked.  Meanwhile, in many American cities, Democrats are declaring their intention to defund big city police departments.  Again, we suspect that communist China is behind this crap.
  50. 2020 Friday A: Here are today’s COVID-19 statistics for the world: 6,724,516 confirmed cases, 394,018 confirmed deaths, and 2,996,832 confirmed recoveries the last number of which is glorious.  Still, we must condemn the communist government of a once-free China for sending this evil around the world to cover up their own internal problems.
  51. 2020 Friday B: Here are today’s stats for the United States: 1,935,432 confirmed cases, 110,655 confirmed deaths, and 453,053 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here is California’s numbers: 122,901 confirmed cases, 4,485 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in Hawaii, here are the numbers: 655 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 611 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in far-left Washington, here are the numbers for today: 22,974 confirmed cases, 1,149 confirmed deaths, but like other socialist s-holes, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.
  52. 2021 Saturday: Ah, it’s the weekend, let’s hope it’s a slow news day…oh, wait!  President Donald J. Trump is speaking at the North Carolina GOP Convention in Greenville this evening.  That is going to send a shiver of cold fear down the backs of the Bidenistas and the Chi-Coms…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull heard their critics loud and clear- stop with the lengthy pieces and avoid going down the pop road.  Thus, the next album the band released- “A Minstrel in the Gallery”- came out on September 05, 1975.  The lineup featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jeffrey Hammond (bass and keyboards), John Evan (keyboards), and Barriemore Barlow (drums) and the album more resembled the band’s first four studio albums than it did any of its immediate predecessors.  We enjoy this album and know that you will, too, so we encourage everyone to seek this one out at your favorite site for nothing but the absolute BEST in music and then adding it to your ever-growing collection.  We began offering the best music back in the early days of 2009 and have continued that effort to the present day.  Please, check it out, give it a good listen, and enjoy.
