  59. 2020 Sunday B: Failed Democratic candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael “Peewee” Bloomberg announces he is going to dump $100,000,000 into Florida to help win it for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Wow, how do we apply for some of those greenbacks?  Ah, well, polls show that Biden-Harris lead Trump-Pence across the nation by a comfortable margin of 51%-46%.  Speaking of President Trump, he is blitzing Nevada today meeting with all sorts of groups and speaking before large groups of people.  Still, Dems claim he is going to lose.   Elsewhere, House Homeland Security Committee Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-LA, says he sent a subpoena to acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf demanding he appear before the committee to answer questions on September 17.  Acting Secretary Wolf says he ‘will be happy to do so but first, he has to undergo the confirmation process so he can sit before them as the DHS director.
  60. 2020 Sunday C: The Chi-Coms are sniveling and whining that ‘President Trump is the fomenter of regional unrest in Asia.’  Wah, wah, wah, no wonder the Chinese Communist Party is supporting the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and Willie Brown’s ‘mattress,’ Sen. Kamala Harris.  The Chi-Coms are supporting Biden, the Russians are supporting Biden, the Iranians are supporting Biden, the Cubans are supporting Biden, hell, every country that hates the United States is supporting “Pro-China Joe” Biden- what does that tell you?  Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says ‘legislation is required’ to negotiate a free-trade deal with the European Union whom the PM says is threatening to blockade the Irish Sea.  WTF?  Finally, the western United States continues burning, homes are destroyed, people are dying all because the three governors of California, Oregon, and Washington won’t do proper forestry management.  Read tomorrow’s post in which, Chef Gervais says it’s because their retirement programs for public employees suck up approximately 90% of each state’s budget so it’s burn baby burn.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next ‘Jethro Tull’ album to come out was “A,” which hit record store shelves on September 01, 1980.  Today’s offering is “A (A La Mode) 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition” which came out on February 17, 2021.  Undisputed leader of Jethro Tull- Ian Anderson- meant this album to be a SOLO effort but record companies being what they are, said, ‘whoa, hold on there, we want this to be the next Jethro Tull album and thus it was.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention) and Mark Craney (drums and percussion).  Ian Anderson said he never meant to replace the lineup of musicians from the earlier years but since this was a SOLO album and since the record company said it ‘must be a Jethro Tull album,’ the classic lineup was out the door and gone- even though some such as Barriemore Barlow were going to leave anyway due to changes in musical direction.  Ah, well, it is what it is, please seek it out and give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it because of all the extras added for the diehard fans to enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2020

Democratic Socialists use Critical Race Theory as a rusty razor blade with which, to tear the fabric of America asunder which is why we must re-elect President Trump so we can stop it

ENDNOTES:


[i] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[ii] We began promoting the music of Foghat, one of the all-time greatest rock bands to explode out of England, beginning on Monday, 18-February-2018 through Monday, 19-March-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this celebrated group out by checking out the blog posts on those dates.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do, we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[iv] 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.

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

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

[vii] Tupac Shakur?  It could be 40 years before we begin promoting the music of rappers.  Please join us every day for that glorious day- you will be glad you did but NO Eminem. Fuck him- he hates his mother.

[viii] Many educated people believe that these so-called migrants are the advance waves of a Muslim invading army designed to bring Western Civilization down by overrunning Europe.  It must stop and it has to stop; otherwise, the world will transform into something it was never intended to be: Sharia-ruled slave states with despots at the top.

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!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Wild Turkey released their next album, “Rarest Turkey,” on September 11, 2007.  This album features a rare collection of tracks that would have been on a third studio album back in the mid-1970s but which ended up on the shelf awaiting some future date.  The album would be repackaged with additional tracks following Glenn Cornick’s untimely death in 2014 so you can either search for that one or check out this earlier version.  We suspect that if you are completists as are we, you will want whatever version of this album you can find.  At $45, it’s a flipping steal so seek it out at Amazon.com and add it to your record collection ASAP.  You will be glad you did.

  55. 2013 Tuesday: The defense ministry of China accuses the United States of increasing tensions in the Asia-Pacific region by increasing its military presence and supporting Vietnam, Japan, and the Philippines in long-term territorial disputes with the country.  Elsewhere, following yesterday’s attack on the Boston Marathon, organizers of the London Marathon- occurring this Sunday- are reassessing their security setup for the event.  Elsewhere, North Korea is having a meltdown over recent protests in South Korea in which residents of Seoul were burning portraits of the leadership.  They demand immediate apologies and cessation of all anti-Democratic Republic of North Korea activities or else.
  56. 2014 Wednesday: South Korean ferry MV Sewol sank; 304 people drowned, most of who were students on vacation.   Elsewhere, Russian hegemony continues in the Ukraine where ‘pro-Russian protesters’ manage to overpower Ukrainian forces and capture six of their armored personnel carriers. 
  57. 2015 Thursday: Migrants continue drowning in the Mediterranean in the waters between Libya and Italy as yet another boat goes down, taking at least 340 people down to Davey Jones’ locker.  Elsewhere, European authorities charge 15 Muslim men from another boat with murder seeing as how they threw 12 Christians overboard to drown when their boat was floundering in high seas.  Crucify them.
  58. 2016 Saturday: The Afghan government continues repelling Taliban attacks on the city of Kunduz.  Afghan and U.S. troops are keeping the jihadists at bay.  Half a world away, Syria and ISIS continue doing battle with one another and many parts of the city of Aleppo are smoldering ruins.  For every rocket attack, the Syrian government answers with airstrikes.  Civilians are fleeing in all directions.
  59. 2017 Sunday: Dictatorial thug leader of Turkey- Recep Tayyip Erdogan- ‘wins’ approval for an 18-article constitutional reform which thrusts the nation ever deeper into totalitarianism.  Elsewhere, due to the stupidity of Hamas and Fatah officials, the Gaza Strip’s ONLY power generating plants shuts down.  It has run out of fuel, its bills have gone unpaid, many among the leadership have skimmed off fortunes from money given to the Palestinian Authority and all they can do is to blame it on the ‘blockade.’  Look, dimwits, the answer is simple: stop building tunnels into Israel and do something for your people.  Period. 
  60. 2018 Monday: Following a recent chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government on the town of Douma, critics are bellowing that the Russians have ‘covered up evidence at the crime scene’ to which, the Russians say, ‘not likely’ and that as soon as it’s safe there (as soon as they finish cleaning it up), they will allow a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to visit the area. 
  61. 2019 Tuesday: While many of us love the Seattle Seahawks, there is no reason as to WHY the team made quarterback Russell Wilson the highest-paid QB in the game, giving him both a $65 million signing bonus as well as a four-year extension worth $140 million.  The rest of the team is struggling so it appears Seattle is going down the path the Baltimore Ravens went with QB Joe Flacco.  Where is Joe NOW?   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump vetoes a bill demanding an end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.
  62. 2020 Thursday: Jobless claims due to COVID-19, the Chinese gift to the world that won’t stop giving, come in at 5.2 million for the week.  Total claims since social distancing and economic shutdown hit 22 million Americans out of work.  This is all because of China.  We must make them pay when we come to the end of the pandemic, which we hope is soon.  Word continues to appear that demonstrate that the Wuhan Virus Crisis did indeed come out of a Chinese laboratory in the city of Wuhan where it just so happens the Chinese conduct biowarfare studies.  Although they continue lying that the virus came from somewhere else, who can believe a single word a communist regime says?  Communists always lie, it’s in their DNA which is why no one should take them at their word.  COVID-19 Statistics: currently, there are 2,151,199 confirmed cases around the planet what with 1 confirmed cases around the planet what with 143,725 confirmed fatalities as well as 541,501 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 672,931 confirmed cases with 34,386 confirmed deaths and 54,594 confirmed recoveries.  The Chinese claim 84,593 confirmed cases, 3,342 confirmed deaths and 79,112 confirmed recoveries.  Boy do the communists lie.
  63. 2020 Thursday A: The stock market today: the DOW Jones Industrial Average is 23,537.68, UP 33.33 (0.14%); the NASDAQ is 8,532.36, UP 139.19 (1.66%), and the S & P is 2,799.55, UP 16.19 (0.58%).  President Trump lays out his plan for a gradual reopening of the economy and people are ecstatic.  Meanwhile, authoritarian Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Congresswoman Debbie Dingell slander defenders of the U.S. Constitution who have protested the governor’s fascist executive orders by claiming the protesters were waving ‘Confederate and Swastika flags.’  Show us some pictures, please.  Again, we say, “ANTIFA, WHERE THE F**K ARE YOU?  YOU SHOULD BE IN MICHIGAN FIGHTING AGAINST THIS FASCIST GOVERNOR AND HER FELLOW DEMOCRATS!”
  64. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 139,274,615 confirmed cases, +933,695, 2,989,590  confirmed deaths, +14,760, and 79,359,280 confirmed recoveries, +573,576.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,764,754 confirmed cases, UP 82,708 from yesterday’s reporting, 571,464 confirmed deaths, UP 933, and 119,018,094 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  65. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 244,572 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  66. 2021 Friday 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: 3,712,566 confirmed cases, 60,837 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,155,744 confirmed cases, 34,330 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,337 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 383,967 confirmed cases, 5,412 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Arkansas, the home of future Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders: they have 332,949 confirmed cases, 5,686 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[x] 
  67. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,902 confirmed cases, 6,315 confirmed deaths, and 827,934 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Nepal, a country the Chi-Coms are trying to undermine and make a de facto piece of the RED EMPIRE: 282,890 cases of the virus, 3,070 confirmed deaths and 274,812 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  68. 2021 Friday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,200.67, UP 164.68 points (+0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,052.34, UP 13.58 points (+0.97%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,185.47, UP 15.05 points (+0.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.07 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,777.30 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.16%) while the price of SILVER is $26.04 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.25%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,206.00 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $4.16 per pound, -0.00 (-0.08%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,777.50 per troy oz, +36.77 (+1.34%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,600.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.78%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000016.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Gibraltar pounds, one greenback equals 0.72860 and in Guatemalan Quetzal, a buck equals 7.72.[xv]   
  69. 2021 Friday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.953 per gallon, $2.833 in Florida, $3.748 in Hawaii, and $3.352 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.080.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,178,345,152,208 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.
  70. 2021 Friday F: GUNS, GUNS, GUNS- You know folks, last night, 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole went into the FedEx facility at the Indianapolis, Indiana, airport, shot and killed 8 people, wounded several others, and then took his own life.  His mother reportedly warned the cops last year that her son might try to go out via suicide by cop.  This is a tragedy for all involved but here’s the deal: since Joe Biden has become president, there have been more mass shootings than there were under the last two years of President Donald J. Trump what with 30 dead so far this month alone.  This tells us that the rhetoric used by feeble old Joe Biden and his Democratic Party henchmen-and-women is driving the nuts to go berserk, shooting, and killing and maiming innocent people.  It is clear many fear they are going to lose their weapons and since they have unfinished business, are going to act on it NOW.  Stop with all the HATE SPEECH, Joe, enough is enough.  (Note- the cops in Indianapolis say they are searching for a motive.  What the hell!  Mr. Hole wanted to die and he had some people with whom he wanted to settle scores.  Period).
  71. 2021 Friday G: BULLS**T POLL OF THE DAY- a recent PEW Poll says that Joe Biden’s approval rating stands at 59-percent.  Please.  This nothing but crap.  Speaking of Joe Biden, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says, that ‘Joe Biden is not up to the task at hand, especially the Chi-Coms who are our biggest threat and someone we should have nuked back in 1951.  In other Joe Biden news, he is holding his first meeting with another foreign leader, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan, at the White House today.  We wonder who is speaking for him.   Anyhow, the two leaders agree that the Taiwan Strait must remain stable.
  72. 2021 Friday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- common sense people are beginning to ask WTF we shut our country down over the Chi-Com virus when hundreds of thousands of people continue swamping across our border and disappearing into the interior of the country?  If the federal government could give a flying f**k about how many of the invaders have COVID-19, then why should anyone else?  Speaking of the border crisis, President George W. Bush- an ‘esteemed former president’ if one ever existed (yeah, right) says he supports immigration reform but not amnesty.  George, we feel the same way about you as we do Jimmy Carter.  When either one of you dimwits says anything, we quickly move onto something else.   
  73. 2021 Friday I: JOE BIDEN REFUGEE NEWS-  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the dumb b***h who slurs her words bad enough already but with a mask strapped over her pie hole makes it even more difficult to understand what the hell she is saying chided Joe Biden on not taking in enough refugees.  Oh, please, Nance, please Joe, bring in some more winners like Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, like the Syrian shooter in Boulder, Colorado, like the Boston bombers, please, bring in some more of those America-hating POS, we need more of them ASAP.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden moves to placate our European allies and says he will remove Trump-era caps on the number of refugees our country accepts in.  That truly sucks.
  74. 2021 Friday J: POLITICAL NEWS I- Someone said Chelsea “The Genius” Clinton may run for Congress.  Good God Almighty, please say it ain’t so.  She is as stupid as is the Fly, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she with her Boston College economics degree.   Then again, she would fit right in with all the dimwitted Democrats serving in Congress already like Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, and Congresswoman Sheila “Putty Puss” Jackson Lee, DS-TX 18th congressional district, and Congressman ‘Mr.’ James “Influence” Clyburn, DS-SC 6th congressional district, she would fit right in.   
  75. 2021 Friday K: POLITICAL NEWS II- Glenn Beck said today on his radio show that in the cities where Black Lives Matter protesters ran amok raping, pillaging, looting, robbing, and beating, there were a combined total of more than 6,000 additional homicides.  Coincidence?  We think not.  They are not a peace-loving group; they are fascist black-and-brown-shirted thugs in need of eradication.  Elsewhere, in other political news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has challenged the highly cerebral Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district to a debate on the Green New Deal.  Now, we would pay handsomely to get ringside seats to see this duel to the death, MTG doing battle with the Fly on pay-per-view-TV.  Sign us up now.
  76. 2021 Friday L: POLITICAL NEWS III- In other political news, we learn that the director for the new Black Panther sequel is NOT going to follow his WOKE liberal comrades and boycott Georgia.  Good.  ‘WOKE’ will go away when people pay it NO attention.  None of us are going to NFL, NBA, or MLB games ever again nor are we going to buy Coca-Cola® products, Nike® sportswear, or any of the other crap that is boycotting everything.  We are not going to go see movies, we do not have to see how stupid we are, how great the Chi-Coms and perverts are, enough is enough.   Elsewhere, the great state of Florida passes an anti-riot bill.  About time someone does.  Look, government’s number one job is this: protecting the lives of its citizens and their property.  Plain, simple, and easy for the stupid to understand.  Once you raise an arm to throw a Molotov cocktail, you get shot.  Once you throw bricks and don’t stop when you are told to stop, you get shot.  Once you start looting, you are eligible to get shot.  This is the way it always was and should be again.
  77. 2021 Friday M: 2020 ELECTION NEWS- reports continue to arise that the number one person behind the changed election laws in numerous states and in the subsequent theft of the election from President Donald J. Trump is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s number one hired thug, attorney Mark Elias.  A partner at Perkins Cole, he is the head of their ‘political law’ department and this man- if we are to believe what we are now learning- is the number one operative behind the stolen election and the subsequent cover-ups of the theft.  In all states where election information has already been trashed, those states should have to hold another election at their expense.
  78. 2021 Friday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- We learn that Hunter Biden’s NEW book in which he talks about smoking crack, banging teenaged whores, and doing all sorts of other evil and disgusting stuff has sold a whopping 10,638 books in its first week.  According to Bill O’Reilly, this is ‘crap’ seeing as how Bill’s new book, “Killing the Mob” has already sold 60,000 copies and is not even on the shelves of bookstores yet.  In other news, people are lamenting the 13-year-old boy who was shot dead in Chicago the other night by a cop.  Adam Toledo, aka Lil Homicide and Baby Diablo was gangbanging with his buds at 2:30 in the morning, running around with a loaded gun, shot at cops, then ran away and dumped the gun just as the cops rolled up and got shot.  YOU don’t want to get shot, don’t be banging, don’t be shooting at cops, and don’t be running around in the middle of the night.  Period.   We shed no tears.  Next, Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, says yes indeed, he is going to resign.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- U.S. Interior Secretary Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the job, is dumping Trump era rules concerning the fossil fuel industry’s rights on public lands.  Apparently, oil and gas companies will no longer be able to drill for vital national resources leaving us dependent upon OPEC, Russia, and other Third World producers of energy.  This makes no sense.  Next, conservative House Republicans are forming the ‘America First Caucus,’  a group to continue the legacy of President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Minneapolis public schools are hurriedly switching over to online learning as the city (and the country) braces for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, the mother of slain EMT Breonna Taylor- Tamika Palmer- slams both State Representative Attica Scott, D-Louisville, and BLM, labeling both of them as ‘frauds’ in the aftermath of the shooting death of her daughter.  According to Ms. Palmer, she watched the TWO raise money off the death of Breonna without doing a damned thing to help her family.  Wow.  We understand.
  80. 2021 Friday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1651: 17, 27, 28, 50, 55, and Mega 25.  Out of 105,680 winning tickets, the highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $496 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

If there is one thing the Brits have for which Americans yearn are BBC releases.  We have nothing that approximates the Beeb so it’s always a joy when one of our beloved British bands releases a comprehensive collection of a band such as UFO.  Here we have an amazing archival release, “On Air- Live at the BBC” which came out on February 21, 2013 and features glorious renditions of the band’s best work recorded under stellar circumstances.  Yes, you get the crème de la crème of the band’s most prolific years, running from 1974 to 1985 or so.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider making it a part of your listening pleasure.  You will be glad you did.

  61. 2016 Monday: In war-torn Yemen, a U.N.-backed ceasefire goes into effect between Saudi Arabia and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.  Elsewhere, Goldman Sachs, seen as one of the big causes of the 2008 financial crisis that conveniently helped Barack Hussein Obama win the White House reached a settlement with the federal government for having sold ‘derivatives,’ packages of mortgages that contained numerous dogs which when everything went to hell took the entire economy down with it.  Anyhow, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $5.06 billion to settle all claims.
  62. 2017 Tuesday: Famed rock-and-roll guitarist and co-leader of the J.

  63. 2018 Wednesday: The Palestinians are upset that Israeli troops and a sniper who took out a Hamas thug got off without being in trouble.  Thus, they set off a bomb near some Israeli construction equipment which then leads the Israeli Defense Forces to light up some Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, other trouble-makers in the region- the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels- launch some rockets into Saudi Arabia one of which shows up in the skies over Riyadh but is taken down by Saudi air force jets.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO came roaring back with an extremely creative album on February 27, 2012, the acclaimed “Seven Deadly.”  Joining vocalist Phill Mogg are longtime UFO veterans Andy Parker (drums), Paul Raymond (keyboards, vocals, and perhaps one of the hardest working musicians in all of rock), Vinnie Moore (guitars), and Peter Lehmann (bass).  Folks, all we can say is that many bands don’t age well but these guys- Christ, they have been around far longer than lots of other bands.  Other than the Rolling Stones who have the all-time record for longevity (must be because they sold their souls for rock-and-roll), UFO has been around far longer than Led Zeppelin, the Kinks, the Who, the Faces, and many, many others so what the heck are you waiting for?  Seek this one out and make it a part of your listening day.

[ii] The major source for the Battle of Dien Bien Phu (besides Time-Life Books) is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[iii] No clue as to when we will promote the music of Cat Stevens.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

[v] We look forward to sharing the music of KISS by at least 2035.  We hope you will be with us at that time.

[vi] Hall & Oates?  We have no clue.  Stay tuned.

[vii] Linda Ronstadt?  No clue as to when we will promote the music of this legendary vocalist either.

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

[ix] We hope to present the music of the J. Geil’s Band at some point within the next five years.  One of the great American bands, they most certainly deserve to be heard and celebrated by the readership of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.

[xii] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.
