  58. 2015 Thursday: It appears that the NFL has implicated New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in ‘Deflate-Gate.”  This is the scandal in which, both the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens claimed the famed quarterback used footballs in playoff games that were under pressure, making them easier for Brady to handle.  His father, Tom Brady, Sr., claims it is all a ‘frame.’

Oliver North, U.S. Army Ret., will become the organization’s next president.   Elsewhere, Paraguay becomes the third country to announce the relocating of its embassy from Tel Aviv to capital of Israel, Jerusalem.  Of course, liberals and Gaza Strip trash are wailing and crying that it’s an ‘affront’ against humanity to do so.  The sooner the better, Paraguay.
  62. 2019 Tuesday: In Venezuela, turmoil- as usual- reigns supreme as the Congress strips opposition leaders of immunity and accuses them of treason.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo makes a surprise visit to Iraq to meet with U.S. military and Iraqi leaders so they can determine what to do as the Iranians continue making threats against both nations.  Nuke them.

Trump be dropped and so it is.   Meanwhile, COVID-19 pandemic adds another 3.17 million Americans to the unemployment rolls, driving the numbers up past 33 million.  Thank you, China.  Confirmed cases of the Kung Flu around the world are 3,784,085; confirmed deaths are 264,679 and confirmed recoveries are 1,255,685 which is great.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,288,771, confirmed deaths are 76,503, and confirmed recoveries are 173,939.  Breaking down the U.S. figures, California has 61,139 confirmed cases, 2,474 confirmed deaths with NO numbers for recoveries.  Hawaii claims 626 confirmed cases, 17 deaths, and 588 confirmed recoveries.  In Washington state, there are 16,178 confirmed cases, 891 confirmed deaths, but NO numbers for recoveries.  What is up with that?  In New York state under the watchful eye of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, there are 327,469 confirmed cases, 20,828 confirmed cases and like California and Washington state, NO numbers for recoveries.  Could it be political?  You better believe it.
  64. 2020 Thursday A: Following a viral video showing Chi-Com sailors aboard their ‘fishing boats’ throwing the body of a dead Indonesian fisherman overboard, the government of Indonesia summons the Chi-Com ambassador to an immediate meeting to discuss the outrageous mistreatment of its citizens serving aboard the Chi-Com ‘fishing fleets’ (which in reality are actually intelligence-gathering operations with foreign fishing crews aboard them to do the ‘fishing’ because fishing is beneath modern-day Chi-Com citizens).   Elsewhere, law enforcement in Brunswick, Georgia, scoops up father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael and charges the two scumbags for chasing down black jogger Ahmaud Arbery on tape beating and then murdering him.  They claimed he was breaking into houses in their area and that they were forced to take matters into their own hands.  These guys are going to fry.   
  65. 2021 Friday: Stick around and discover the truth along with us…you know it’s going to be good…until BIG BROTHER shuts us down for good…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final album Badfinger did for Apple Records came out on November 23, 1973.  “Ass” hit record store shelves and fans were still with the group even though it did not do well on the charts.  The group was disillusioned with Apple because the label had sold them a bill of goods and then left them in the lurch.  Warner Bros. happily picked them up and gave them new life.  The band featured Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  “Apple of My Eye” was the single from the band but it failed to do as well as previous releases.  We hope you will seek this one out and give it a good listen- you will definitely enjoy it as much as we do.

ENDNOTES:


[i] 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.

[ii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

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

[vi] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[vii] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

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

Gavin Newsom?  Colleagues up in Washington state report 15,462 confirmed cases what with confirmed deaths at 841 and- like California- NO recovery confirmation numbers.  Gov.

  62. 2018 Wednesday: Sacramento County, California, sheriff’s deputies arrest Joseph James DeAngelo, a former California law enforcement officer, believing him to be the infamous Golden State Killer.  This slime ball committed a string of violent crimes between 1973 and 1984 and eventually was convicted of at least 13 murders, 50 or more rapes, and at least 250 burglaries.   Apparently, he committed his crimes in at least three different crime sprees between the years mentioned.
  63. 2019 Thursday: Former U.S. senator and Vice President Joe Biden announces his bid for the 2020 Democratic Party’s White House presidential nomination.  Elsewhere, the Ukraine passes a law stating that ONLY Ukrainian will be the language of everything in their country and NO Russian bulls**t.  Of course, the ‘Russian separatists’ are horrified at such a horrendous law.  (We need an English-only law in the United States…)
  64. 2020 Saturday: Speculation continues to swirl around North Korean leader Kim Jong Un- is he or is he not still alive?  He purportedly had some sort of cardiac issues but no one knows for sure.  We continue to await further developments.  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19 battlefront, the world reports 2,892,508 cases this Saturday what with 202,455 deaths but at least 815,658 confirmed recoveries.  In the U.S., the number of confirmed cases rests at 956,375 confirmed cases what with 53,928 confirmed deaths but 102,340 confirmed recoveries.  Some states such as Georgia and Colorado have announced re-opening of their economies and we await further developments on this front.  Back to COVID-19, the communist Chinese continue sticking with their bulls**t statistics that they have but 88,423 confirmed cases what with 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 81,725 confirmed recoveries.  Pay no attention as communists like jihadists always lie.
  65. 2021 Sunday:  Stick around and discover the truth along with us…

ENDNOTES:


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

[ii] 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.

W. 1944 Sunday: The Red Army continues rolling up German and Rumanian pockets around Yalta as the Soviets continue pushing the Axis troops out of their country. Although ill-supplied and devoid of hope, the Germans continue fighting for their lives because they are more afraid of the Fuhrer in Berlin than they are of their Russian enemies.

  15. 1917 Monday: Vladimir Ilyich Lenin arrived back from exile in Petrograd to join the Russian Revolution.   Kaiser Wilhelm II played his ‘secret weapon’ well: loaded aboard a closed train, Lenin and the Kaiser struck a deal- ‘we will send you back to Russia and when you take power, you take Russia out of the war.’  And so it occurred.  However, when the communists took power, every nation in Europe shunned them because they did not want the evil disease of Marxism spreading to their countries but for now, all was well.

  20. 1941 Wednesday: The Yugoslav government (or what’s left of it) is attempting to negotiate an end to the Axis invasion of their country.  The Yugoslav military was not prepared for the Blitzkrieg that fell atop them like a load of bricks.  Anger Adolf Hitler and you will pay the price.

  24. 1945 Monday: Allied troops begin entering the German city of Nuremburg during World War II.  Meanwhile the Red Army commenced the Battle of Berlin.  First, they would have to capture the outlying heights and then cut off the city.  German troops know that they cannot win this battle; however, they plan to bleed the Red Army dry of blood.  Finally, in the Baltic Sea, a Soviet submarine torpedoed and sank the MV Goya, a luxury liner the Nazis impressed into service to haul refugees and wounded soldiers from the Baltic republics in the face of an attacking Red Army; it is estimated that up to 7,000 peopled died in the attack.

  27. 1954 Friday: The Battle of Dien Bien Phu continues, building in intensity.  Great pains are put into locating the enemy AA batteries so they can neutralize as many of them as possible which they do- at great cost in dwindling artillery ammunition.  The problem is, there are so many, taking out the ones they could cost them much-needed artillery ammo.  Meanwhile, Hanoi sends word that they are going to promote the leading officers by one rank.  Thus, Colonel Christian De Castries becomes Brigadier General De Castries while Lt.

  46. 2004 Friday: The Human Rights Commission at the United Nations- such a stellar body with a distinguished track record (yeah, right) got a BIG HIGH-FIVE from the Chi-Coms when the commission smacked down a motion by the United States to condemn the Chi-Coms’ abysmal record on human rights.  Rice wine all around, folks.  Elsewhere, as the fight in Iraq goes from bad to worse, the U.S. military drops a 1,000-pound bomb near the Shiite town of Najaf.  Good going let’s make those people love us even more there, President George W. Bush.

  53. 2011 Saturday: In Egypt, the court orders the former ruling National Democratic Party of Hosni Mubarak be dissolved.  Next, in Cuba, President Raul Castro proposes ‘term limits’ for ‘elected officials.’  Come on, Raul, Cuba is a communist s**thole and things such as ‘term limits’ and ‘elections’ are complete shams, meant only for foreign consumption.

  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.

  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]

  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.

37. 1954 Tuesday: As the People’s Army continues trench construction drawing them closer and closer to the main French base at Dien Bien Phu as well as to the outlying ones such as Isabelle, the Dominque bases, the Huguettes, French warplanes are flying as many sorties as possible. They are dropping napalm to expose the artillery and antiaircraft batteries as well as the troop concentration zones so as to disrupt them. Otherwise, Colonel Christian De Castries fears the Viet Minh are going to draw so close as to starve the defenders out. Airstrikes won’t be able to hit the communists without killing their allies.

Trump released an order banning most transgender troops from serving in the military except under “limited circumstances.”  Meanwhile, the online classified ads site Craigslist removed its personals section; the action came after the U.S. Senate passed an anti-sex-trafficking bill that could hold the website and others responsible for illegal activity.  Elsewhere in Sochi, Russia, in one of the largest transfers of desert sand ever, a sandstorm in the Sahara transforms the snow from white to orange.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO came back on September 26, 2006 with its next studio album, “The Monkey Puzzle,” a superb rocker to be sure flavored with their unique blend of rock-and-roll.  The band was close to being original in that it featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Pete Way (bass/vocals), Paul Raymond (guitars/keyboards/vocals), Andy Parker (drums), and Vinnie Moore (guitars).  If you know anything about this band, you know they are one of the survivors from the glorious days- 1960s and 1970s- UFO coming along at the end of the ‘60s and continuing until modern times which puts them into a category with only the Rolling Stones and part-time Who.  Oh, yeah, Deep Purple remains with us, too, and years ago at the Google site, we spent close to a year presenting their music.  Thus, we are proud to share UFO with our WordPress.com fans.  Join us and celebrate, too!   You can find this album at Amazon.com as well as at Discogs, AllMusic, and other online venues…

79. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 2021

GG. 1954 Saturday: at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, General Giap of the People’s Liberation Army has his sights set on drawing closer to the main French base but first, his troops would have to grab control of No Man’s Land which meant more trenches had to be dug to approach the various Huguettes west of the main airstrip. The French are still able to get some daredevil pilots to fly in, do quick drops and take some wounded out so the People’s Army has to stop this by taking control of the strip as best they can.

  49. 2003 Thursday: The United States, Great Britain, Australia, and Poland invade Iraq sans United Nations sanctions.  Airstrikes have already been crisscrossing the country and it appears that the Iraqis are unprepared to contend with this assault.  Little did the Coalition troops know that Saddam Hussein had a plan, a good plan.  Government forces disappear into the shadows and an insurrection fueled by religious extremism will blossom in it’s place.  That won’t happen for several months however…
  50. 2004 Saturday:  In Taiwan, despite being shot in the stomach by an unknown assailant, President Chen Shui-bian wins another term as president.  The results are close so his opponent decries the election as ‘unfair’ but the results hold firm.   Meanwhile, in the United States, millions of people in this country and across the world take to the streets protesting the first anniversary of the war in Iraq.  It started out well and everyone in Congress- including the Democrats- were onboard but as soon as it went south, everyone was all over President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney (especially him), and the administration.
  51. 2005 Sunday: In Fukuoka, Japan, the first major earthquake to hit in more than a century occurs killing one person and injuring numerous others which also causes massive evacuations.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrives in Beijing to meet with Chi-Com President Hu Jintao.
  52. 2006 Monday: In Chad, the rebel movement seeking to overthrow President Idris Deby launches an attack in the eastern part of the country that kills 150 government soldiers and injures countless others.   Meanwhile Russian thug Vladimir Putin visits Beijing to discuss energy projects with Chi-Com thug, Hu Jintao.
  53. 2007 Tuesday: Democrats continue screeching and whining about the Bush White House firing a bunch of federal attorneys.  President Bush agrees to permit White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers testify but NOT under oath.   Meanwhile, the French government signs an extradition treaty with communist China.  They will ONLY extradite people involved in DEATH PENALTY CASES and only if the communists agree not to condemn the individual to death.  Typical European thinking.
  54. 2008 Thursday: The communist Chinese are having a hell of time trying to quell the rising unrest in Tibet.  Well, go figure- the Chi-Coms are interlopers and Tibet is NOT their country yet they claim it, persecute their people, and are searching for the Dalai Lama as though he is a common criminal.   The Dalai Lama offers to meet with the Chi-Coms but in response they load up hundreds of military vehicles loaded with soldiers to crush the INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT.
  55. 2009 Friday: Somali pirates board their swift boats and take to the high seas attacking the Greek-flagged cargo ship, MV Titan. 
  56. 2010 Saturday: In Lebanon, the authorities arrest four of their citizens, accused of being recruited by the Mossad to spay on their fellow citizens.  As the authorities take them in, two manage to escape and make it into Israel.  Jerusalem remains mum on the incident.  Meanwhile, in Russia, people take to the streets to protest the policies of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin who continues erecting a Soviet-like police state block by block by block.
  57. 2011 Sunday: The Arab Spring continues: the people of Morocco turn out in the thousands to demand an end to corruption and civil rights for all citizens.  Bahrain is experiencing problems as is Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Libya.  Arabs across the Middle East are hopping mad with their governments and their governments are taken by surprise.  It will lead to a complete restructuring of much of the Middle East.   
  58. 2012 Tuesday: Violence continues to rage across Iraq with 50 people killed and another 240 plus injured as terrorists conduct suicide bombings, shootings, kidnappings, and other violence.  At least 10 cities are experiencing a wave of violence.  Elsewhere, Pope Benedict XVI appoints three new bishops for the United States- one in Baltimore, Maryland, the second in Tallahassee-Pensacola, Florida, and the third in Cheap Trick’s[v] home, Rockford, Illinois.
  59. 2013 Wednesday: Zillur Rahman, age 84, the president of Bangladesh, dies in office after a prolonged illness at a hospital in Singapore; the government declared three days of mourning.  Meanwhile, following the U.S. State Department’s comments on next month’s Venezuelan elections, Caracas cuts off a back-channel line of communications with Washington, D.C.  The Venezuelans would NEVER dream of holding corrupt or crooked elections not with Smartmatic Software and allegedly Dominion Voting Systems machines, allegedly.
  60. 2014 Thursday: Rising Asian demand for Champagne will represent increasing export growth, with Japan currently the fourth-largest export market after the U.K., the U.S. and Germany.   Meanwhile, the world is growing increasingly upset with the Russian occupation and annexation of the Crimea but there is nothing anyone will do to stop Vladimir Putin’s road to conquest.  Next, and even more perplexing, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, orders an investigation into HOW and even more important WHY the CIA ‘breached’ the U.S. Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence’s computers.[vi]  
  61. 2015 Friday: The creator of “Berry’s World,” cartoonist Jim Berry, dies at age 83.  Meanwhile, former Liberal Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Fraser (served 1975-83) dies at age 84.  Elsewhere, ISIS releases video of the executions of three Kurdish peshmerga soldiers and announces with glee that ‘there are going to be more from where those came.’  Savage sons of bitches, we need to radiate all of them.
  62. 2016 Sunday: President Barack Hussein Obama and his family arrive in Cuba for a three-day visit.  He was the first U.S. president to visit the island nation since 1928.  His visit, however, was the first by any American president since the island went communist in the 1950s so thank you, Mr. Obama, for being such a pro-Castro POS.
  63. 2017 Monday: The American psychotherapist who coined the term ‘homophobia’ dies at the age of 87.  We do not know if Dr. George Weinberg was himself a homosexual but he’s the one who crafted the term.  Meanwhile, confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia commence today.  Of course, liberals are hopping mad over the fact that their guy, Merrick Garland, never had a hearing but it is what it is.  Elsewhere, fired FBI Director James Comey is going to testify before the House Intelligence Committee today.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: Actress Cynthia Nixon from “Sex in the City” announces she will run for New York governor.  She would go down in flames to the dimwit Andrew Cuomo.  Meanwhile, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House.  Elsewhere, after allegations of rape and other sex crimes continue hammering Harvey Weinstein- close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton- the Weinstein Company files for Chapter 11 protections.
  65. 2019 Wednesday: According to the World Happiness Report, Finland is the happiest country on planet Earth while the South Sudan is the least-happiest nation.  Meanwhile, South Korean authorities arrest four scumbags for secretly filming at least 1,600 hotel guests doing the nasty and selling the footage to online Websites. Elsewhere, Disney forks out $71.3 billion to buy 21st Century Fox and all its individual parts.  Next, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras issues a ruling that HALTS oil and natural gas drilling in Wyoming.  The reason: climate change.   
  66. 2020 Friday: The Chinese Virus is sweeping across the world.  At first, health authorities- especially in the United States and Europe- were very dismissive of the Wuhan Flu whereas now, businesses are closing and a two-week mandatory order in the U.S. is enacted.  “Two weeks to flatten the curve and then life can return to normal” is the mantra.  People like the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci told us early on that masks were not important whereas now, everyone must wear them if they wish to journey out to the doctor or to big box stores.  Toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex and napkins have become a thing of the past.  The shelves of stores are being stripped clean with only foodstuffs people don’t like clinging to the shelves.
  67. 2021 Saturday: DAY 60 of the Biden Regime- stick around and find out what the fossilized Biden Regime, the Fake News Media, and the Chi-Coms are up to today- everyone knows it’s going to be good…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Michael Schenker- ever the musical gypsy- recorded his first album of covers, “Heavy Hitters,” which hit music store shelves on July 12, 2005.  Various musicians joined him for a handpicked set of 10 tunes ranging from Mountain to Cream to Black Sabbath to Pink Floyd as well as several other favorites.  This album offers the artist in a new realm of interpreting the musical works of other ‘heavy hitters,’ something that aroused his fans and brought in new ones, as well.  We hope you will visit whatever site it is you do when you seek out the best in rock music and pick it up- you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

P. 1942 Friday A: Field Marshal Erich Von Manstein is preparing his relief force of armored units to fight towards Stalingrad to relieve the German Sixth Army.

  44. 2006 Monday: The Washington Post releases a report conducted by the U.S. Marine Corps, a classified report obtained God knows how, that shows the U.S. Military no longer believes it is capable of defeating the Sunni insurgency in the western portion of Iraq nor al-Qaida whose influence continues growing among the Sunni minority worried about the power of the Shiite majority.   As if this is not bad enough, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan says, ‘Iraq appears to be on the brink of civil war.’  You think?

  51. 2013 Wednesday: In Italy, legislators expelled ex-Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi from parliament due to his tax fraud conviction.  Meanwhile, as al-Qaida continues a wave of terror across Iraq, 33 people are killed in a spate of bombings and shootings with innumerable others wounded.

  54. 2016 Sunday: Hated by the people of Cuba but much beloved by socialists, communists, and Democrats, Fidel Castro, leader of ‘The Revolution’ finally dies at the age of 90. The POS should have died in the crib.   Meanwhile, President-elect Donald J. Trump says that ‘millions of illegal alien voters cost him the popular vote.’  This is TRUE as both California and New York- among other states- are overrun with the vermin.  We hope he will round them up, build the wall, and deport them all.   Meanwhile, the Clinton team joins Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party presidential candidate, demanding a recount in Wisconsin.
  55. 2017 Monday: During a ceremony with Navajo Code Talkers of World War II, to the delight of the assembled Native American crowd and to the horror of liberals and Democrats everywhere, President Donald J. Trump refers to Senator Elizabeth Warren, noted phony Indian, as Pocahontas.  Eventually, the Massachusetts Democrat would have a DNA test conducted that would show she is 1,124th– that’s right- 1,124th Cherokee.  Wow.
  56. 2018 Tuesday: The United States accuses the wife of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, a communist, Rosario Murillo- who also happens to be the nation’s vice president- of human rights abuses among other crimes and imposes sanctions.  Meanwhile, in the United States, Samuel Little- a convicted murderer- confesses to the murders of 90 women across the country.
  57. 2019 Wednesday:  President Donald J. Trump signs two bills favorable to Hong Kong, confirming both its autonomous status while the other bans the sale of munitions and weapons to the Hong Kong police.  Of course, the Chi-Coms go berserk.   Meanwhile, Ghana commemorates ‘the year of return,’ which marks 300 years since the first African slaves were sold to slavers and grants 125 people citizenship in a special ceremony- so says, “On This Day.”       
  58. 2020 Friday:  Vilified by anti-Trumpers across the country, the war against Plaquenil, aka hydroxychloroquine, is once again proven to be a bogus war, a war launched by liberal Democrats and pseudo-Republicans to defeat President Donald J. Trump.  Studies demonstrate that people using the anti-malarial drug are 84-percent less likely to undergo hospitalization for COVID-19.  All throughout this year, any time President Donald J. Trump extolled the virtues of hydroxychloroquine, his enemies relentlessly attacked the drug via attacking him.  Elsewhere, we learn that in Pennsylvania, at least 21,000 DEAD PEOPLE voted in the 2020 Elections, most of them for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.   Across the country, there are 1.8 million ghost voters on the voter rolls.  This must be stopped.
  59. 2020 Friday A: Sadly, we learn that Pennsylvania state Senator Doug Mastriano who chaired the hearings into voter fraud in the Keystone State last week has had his Twitter account closed by the social media propaganda site.  What a shame.   Regarding this left-wing propaganda, President Donald J. Trump says Section 230, the entity that protects the social media giants, should be terminated since it’s a national security risk.   Meanwhile, we learn that 409 miles of border wall have been built the past four years with another 242 currently under construction and another 87 in the pre-building phase.  The question is, IF “Pro-China Joe” Biden does become president, what is going to happen to the border wall?   Finally, former Congressman David Valadao, R-CA, wins back his 21st U.S. House seat from corrupt Democratic carpetbagger and one-term Congressman T.J. Cox.  That’s another nail in the coffin of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Congratulations, Congressman-elect Valadao!
  60. 2020 Friday B: In a great news update, an Iranian nuclear scientist suspected of masterminding the country’s nuclear programs- including weapons- was assassinated while driving outside of Tehran.   The scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was essential for the development of nuclear weapons so his slaying purportedly at the hands of the Israeli Mossad is a big setback for the outlaw nation.  Meanwhile, the Israelis are pressuring “Pro-China Joe” Biden NOT to resume participation in the JCPOA, the multi-nation agreement with the Iranians not to build a nuclear weapons program but to pursue peaceful energy production instead.   Whether the enfeebled ‘president-elect’ will follow the wishes of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is unknown; we shall see.   Anyway, good riddance to Fakhrizadeh.
  61. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 61,473,875 confirmed cases, +754,296, 1,440,207, confirmed deaths, +13,203, and 39,266,692 confirmed recoveries, +361,915.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 13,106,842 confirmed cases, up 189,427 from yesterday’s reporting, 267,757 confirmed deaths, UP 2,017, and 6,452,614 confirmed recoveries, UP 46,455.  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: 1,181,420 confirmed cases, 19,033 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 17,678 confirmed cases, 235 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 162,045 confirmed cases, 2,825 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 332,802 confirmed cases, 2,839 confirmed deaths, and 321,346 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Arkansas- currently, they have 155,637 confirmed cases, 2,436 confirmed deaths, and 134,312 confirmed recoveries.           
  62. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,910.37, UP 37.90 points (+0.13%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,205.85, UP 111.44 points (+0.92%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,638.35, UP 8.70 points (+0.24%).  Price of GOLD: $1,783.10 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.07%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $22.68 per troy oz., +0.127 (+0.56%).  Price of PLATINUM: $970.80 per troy oz., +6.00 (+0.62%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,439.70 per troy oz., +75.00 (+3.17%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.40 per #, +0.0045 (+0.13%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $45.52, -0.01 (-0.02%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.80 Afghan afghani.     
  63. 2020 Friday E: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1611 with a jackpot of $229 million at stake: 04, 10, 27, 35, 58, and Mega 10.  The highest winners were 8 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $2,478.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The modern era Foreigner recorded a show in Nashville, Tennessee, “Rockin’ at the Ryman,” a DVD that came out on April 26, 2011 and featured yet another somewhat altered lineup of Mick Jones (guitars), Thom Gimbel (guitars, vocals, keyboards, and horns), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Jason Sutter (drums), and Kelly Hansen (vocals).  This is the DVD version of the album, one that contains 16 red-hot classics, both old and new, all for a new audience of listeners.  Friends, there are not many bands from the ORIGINAL DAYS (well, in the case of Foreigner, somewhat original days as they were a decade behind the dinosaurs like the Stones, the Kinks, the Who, the Animals, the Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, Faces, Humble Pie) so whenever one is still on the prowl and cleaner than the day they entered the music business, one must take note and give them a listen- you will be glad you did.  Great album by a great band that still can crank it up and blow out their fans.  Check ‘em out.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY NOVEMBER 27, 2020

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

Friday, November 27, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] The states celebrating the Day After Thanksgiving are California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.

[ii] In 2019, Democrats are screeching like banshees over President Donald J. Trump sending Rudy Giuliani to serve as his special envoy to the Ukraine when in fact, every president has dispatched special envoys of his choice to conduct business or to investigate on the president’s behalf.  There is NOTHING wrong with this practice no matter what the flipping Democrats claim.

[iii] 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.    The “Magical Mystery Tour” album appeared on Wednesday, 23-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[iv] “All Things Must Pass,” a three-record set appeared on Friday, 09-December-2016.  Please, seek it out and consider adding it to your collection.

[v] As it turned out, President Clinton’s testimony was false and he suffered for it later by losing his license to practice law for one year.  His testimony was proven false when a friend of Monica Lewinsky produced a semen-stained blue dress that matched the president’s DNA.  My, my, my!

[vi] It is important to note that Al Gore and the Democrats did everything possible to steal this election from the Republicans which sure as hell ain’t right but it’s what they do.  Shame.

[vii] Question: is this man a Ukrainian or a Russian?  The Democrats are always wailing and screaming about “THE RUSSIANS! THE RUSSIANS!” yet only the Democrats seem to pal around with the Russkies.  WTF?  Supposedly, Mr. Mezvinsky was born in Philadelphia on 12-10-1977 but his birthplace could be as phony as Barack Hussein Obama’s.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.1r Wet Dream #18 04-20-2020 (400)

 

Keyboardist/vocalist Rick Wright recorded and released his first solo album, “Wet Dream,” on September 15, 1978.  The artist performed the keyboards/vocals what with his good friends Mel Collins (saxophones/horns), early drummer for Robin Trower, Reg Isidore, Snowy White (guitars), and Larry Steele (bass).  Sadly, the album went without much notice, sales were absent, and it went quickly out of print.  However, with the artist’s death several years ago and the age of the compact disc, one can find it and enjoy it yet again.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will enjoy it.

Gavin Newsom?  Colleagues up in Washington state report 15,462 confirmed cases what with confirmed deaths at 841 and- like California- NO recovery confirmation numbers.  Gov.

The next album Pink Floyd released- “Wish You Were Here”- came out on September 12, 1975.  This album was the follow up to “Dark Side of the Moon” and lived up to expectations and then some.  The band remained the same: Roger Waters (bass/vocals), David Gilmour (guitars/vocals), Nicky Mason (drums/percussion), and Richard Wright (keyboards/vocals) as well as some supporting musicians to increase the sound and the vocal range.  At the time, reviews were mixed, which is always amazing, but back in those days, rock media somewhat resembled the fake news media of today in that they blistered almost every release by a top band and then some.  Sad thing is this: critics can only criticize while performers perform.  This is one of the all-time great albums of the day which is why we hope everyone will seek it out and add it to their growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.   You will be glad you did.
