Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Illinois, the “Land of Lincoln,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 169,883 while the number of deaths is 7,560.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame.
  73. 2021 Sunday: Folks, for Christ’s Sake, it’s Sunday, let’s hope the Chi-Coms and their stooge in the White House and their other stooges scattered throughout the government are not causing problems today.  Stick around and discover what they’re doing along with me- Chef Charles.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Blodwyn Pig went into the studio and created a true gem in “All Said and Done,” (March 28, 2004).  Mick Abrams and band redid in its entirety Jethro Tull’s first album, “This Was,” and what a difference between Ian Anderson’s ultimate version and guitarist Abrams musical views.  Remember, after “This Was,” the creative difference between Ian Anderson and the fiery guitarist caused the latter to bolt and everyone knows the rest of the story.  The other album of this two-disc set is a smoking, red-hot album, both of which make a highly desirable package.  We hope you will go out and seek this album out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

  58. 2018 Tuesday: Near Athens, Greece, swift-moving wildfires, blamed on out of control global warming, continue wreaking havoc across the region killing 91, injuring 104, and causing another 600 to flee into the water being rescued by boats.   Meanwhile, following a drug overdose, singer Demi Lovato[ix] finds herself in the hospital.  Elsewhere, the Syrians are down a jet after one crossed into Israeli-controlled Golan Heights and the Israeli Defense Force shot it down.  
  59. 2019 Wednesday: Senile Special Counsel reports to the U.S. Senate that ‘President Donald J. Trump was NOT cleared of obstruction of justice charges and reiterates that Russia did indeed interfere in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.’  Millions of Americans find it both shameful and personally embarrassing that the Democrats continue trotting this old fogey out to continue trying to tarnish the 45th president.  Send the old man to a rest home already.   Meanwhile, Europe is best with its hottest ever recorded temperatures causing Greta Thunberg to rush into the bunker.  In Germany, thermometers hit 104.9° F and in the Netherlands, temps hit 102.5° F which is a typical summer’s day in California.  Ah, well, we understand their anguish because we have air conditioning and they mostly don’t.  No wonder Europeans hate America.
  60. 2020 Friday: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,628,936 confirmed cases, UP by 310,939 cases, 636,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,410 deaths, and 8.917,141 confirmed recoveries, UP by 195,726 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,179,560 confirmed cases, UP by 79,759 new cases, 147,534 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,239 new deaths, and 1,252,170 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,537 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  61. 2020 Friday A: 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: 435,334 confirmed cases, UP 7,718, 8,186 confirmed deaths, UP by 159, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,490 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,125 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 50,009 confirmed cases, 1,482 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  62. 2020 Friday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,469.89, DOWN 182.44 points (-0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,363.18, DOWN 98.24 points (-0.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,215.63, DOWN 20.03 points (-0.62%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.30 per troy oz., +2.80 (+0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $22.98 per troy ounce, +0.125 (+0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $955.40 per troy oz, -1.00 (-0.10) while the price of COPPER is $2.89 per pound, +0.002 (+0.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.34 per barrel, +0.05 (+0.12%).
  63. 2020 Friday C: President Donald J. Trump signed four executive orders designed to lower drug prices for all Americans.  As things have stood for decades, Americans are screwed on health care costs because allied and other nations enjoy cheaper, more reasonable costs for their prescription drugs.  The first order would permit importation of  medications from countries where the costs are more reasonable and realistic.  A nation such as Canada would be among the prime countries of export.  Another executive order removes the huge profits wholesalers enjoy- so-called middlemen- by slashing them to much more reasonable amounts.  The third order would cut the costs of insulin while the fourth would force the federal government to buy drugs for Medicare at the lower costs they are in other countries.  Now, how about allowing ALL health care providers to compete in every state as well as to offer a wider variety of plans addressing all needs of all Americans?  That would be amazing.  
  64. 2020 Friday D: Communist China orders the U.S. to close its consulate in Chengdu as retaliation for the U.S. order to them to close their spy hub in Houston.  The Chin swear they are not going to leave the Houston, Texas, consulate but they need to get their s**t and get the hell out of the country.  All U.S. personnel in communist China should come home…NOW.
  65. 2021 Saturday: As you know, we never wish negative on anyone, as you know, we are rooting for Joe Biden to wake up from his senility and to begin doing the work of the American people rather than talking crazy about white supremacism, racism, and the cops.  We would like to see the ‘Joe of Old’ and not this stooge of Xi Jinping ransacking the country.  We can find out together- Chef Charles.

Famed guitarist Martin Barre returned with his next solo effort, “Stage Left,” on December 24, 2003.  Once again, the musician demonstrated just what a musical powerhouse he was and what he provided to Jethro Tull since the late 1960s, a unique, polished sound.  Joining the axe-man were Jonathan Noyce (bass), Doane Perry, (drums), Mark Tucker (recording engineer), Andrew Giddings (keyboards), and one or two others.  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your listening pleasure each day.  You will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] It would appear the Department of War would become the first victim of political correctness.

[ii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iv] 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.

[v] We hope to share the music of Little Richard one day.  Not sure as to when, however.

[vi] Not sure when we will do the music of Judas Priest- if ever.

[vii] Not sure as to when we will do the music of America but please stay tuned.

[viii] 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.

[ix] We won’t be doing the music of this skank unless the blog site is still here in 50 years.

Spencer left his job on this date.   A member of no professed political party, Spencer served under President Donald J.

  68. 2020 Thursday B: Today is the 56th straight day of rioting and protests in the city of Portland, Oregon.  Mayor Ted Wheeler, Democrat, says federal law enforcement is responsible for the rioting when in truth, it’s the ambivalence of the mayor and his city council that bears full responsibility for the mayhem occurring in that once beautiful city’s streets.  The previous night, in a despicable act of virtue-signaling, the mayor went out on the streets to participate in the riots and the agitators threw garbage at him and told him to resign.  He suffered two bouts of tear-gassing before his security people removed him from the streets to safety  Arrest the mayor, mow down the Antifa thugs.  Bring sanity back NOW!  Meanwhile, national polling averages give “Pro-China Joe” Biden a 15-point lead over President Donald J. Trump.  According to Democrats, Trump is ‘toast’ and might as well resign and go home NOW.
  69. 2020 Thursday C: On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka the Fly, Democratic-Socialist, blubbered about comments made by Florida GOP Congressman Ted Yoho in which he called the dingbat far-left socialist a “F**king bitch.”  Well, she is a F**king Bitch and needs to be beaten in November.
  70. 2021 Friday: What will the stock market and commodities be today in usurper Joe’s America?  No telling but we are anticipating a crash of the markets sometime this summer because the crazy crap the Biden regime is doing is not for the benefit of the country but for the ‘president’ and his crime family.  Stick around and find out along with us.

  21. 1941 Tuesday: Architects presented the plans for the Pentagon to the House Subcommittee of Appropriations.  On the Eastern Front, Axis forces continue steamrolling across the Soviet Union.  The problems the Axis troops are facing is that as they head east, Russia opens up like a great funnel which dilutes the strength of the Axis forces.  That’s bad enough but stories of the atrocities the Nazis are committing behind the lines against civilians- notably communist party members and Jews- is stiffening the backbones of the Red Army soldiers.  Even without help in sight, they trade their lives to buy time for their comrades farther east to prepare defenses.   Still, Operation Barbarossa rolls forward.

Patton captured Palermo, Sicily, during World War II.  At least 50,000 Italian troops- about the size of a division- are trapped in the western portion of the island and without relief will have to lay down their arms and become prisoners of war.  Not long ago, Il Duce Benito Mussolini guaranteed his ally, Adolf Hitler, that the Fascists would continue the fight.
  24. 1944 Saturday: The Soviet military authorities set up the Polish National Liberation Committee. In essence, they are telling the Free Polish government broadcasting orders to the Polish people from London, ‘you aren’t in charge here.’  Soviet forces capture the strategic city of Chelm and redouble their efforts at encircling Lublin, Poland.  Meanwhile, in London, Rick Davies, future keyboardist, and vocalist with the rock group, Supertramp[i], is born in Swindon, England.
  25. 1945 Sunday: As Allied bombers continue blasting Japan, the Japanese government still is not ready to throw in the towel.  Tokyo still thinks it can negotiate a peace and tells the Allies; we are ‘open to peace feelers but not to outright surrender.’  The Imperial Japanese are determined to defend their home islands to the bitter end no matter the cost.
  26. 1946 Monday: The militant Zionist group Irgun blew up a wing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, killing 91 people and wounding many more.

  37. 1986 Tuesday: The U.S. House of Representatives impeaches Federal Judge Harry E. Clairborne on grounds of income tax evasion.
  38. 1987 Wednesday: To protect them from possible Iranian assault, the United States Navy commenced escorting re-flagged Kuwaiti oil tankers up and down the Persian Gulf.  Because the Iraqis were kicking Iranian butt in the Iran-Iraq War, the Iranians wanted to widen the war to which, the United States under President Ronald Reagan told them, “NO.”
  39. 1991 Thursday: Police in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, arrested sick f**k Jeffrey Dahmer, who later confessed to murdering 17 men and boys.  Dahmer ended up dying in prison after another inmate beat him to death in general population.

  44. 1999 Thursday: In Rome, N.Y., the 30th anniversary music festival celebrating the original Woodstock Music and Arts Festival of 1969 begins.  None of the bands there could ever approximate the original performers and add to that the fact the concert temperatures were over 100 degrees plus, people became violent and battled with one another bringing the mess to an end on the 25th.  Some said the fiasco was ‘the day the music died,’ a comment attributed to San Francisco Examiner journalist Jane Ganahi.  Yes, we think it did die there what with a mishmash of various groups.   The fact that people fought with each other, there were sexual assaults, rapes, arson, and looting says that this event was NOT about ‘peace and love.’  Nope.  Can’t rekindle the magic.
  45. 2000 Saturday: Astronomers at the University of Arizona announced they had a 17th moon orbiting Jupiter.
  46. 2003 Tuesday: Saddam Hussein’s two miserable sons Odai and Qusai died during a gunfight with U.S. forces in northern Iraq.  Elsewhere, a fire broke out near the top of the Eiffel Tower.  French authorities evacuated approximately 4,000 people sans any reported injuries.
  47. 2004 Thursday: The September 11 commission’s final report hit the news on this date.  The 575-page report concluded that hijackers exploited “deep institutional failings within our government.”  The commission released it to the White House a day before.  This report has led many 9-11 Truthers to blame George W. Bush for allowing the jihadist scum to attack the United States so the President could launch a war with Iraq.  This is a bunch of felonious bull crap as EVERYONE—we repeat—EVERYONE believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

  49. 2008 Tuesday: Tropical Storm Dolly spun into a hurricane as it headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border.  Meanwhile, European Union ministers agreed to toughen sanctions against murderous thug-dictator President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to pressure him to share power with the opposition.  Finally, actress Estelle Getty died in Los Angeles, California, at age 84.

  63. 2020 Wednesday C: 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: 413,576 confirmed cases, 7,883 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,418 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,084 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 48,575 confirmed cases, 1,465 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed 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, Florida: 379,619 confirmed number of cases, 5,459 confirmed number of deaths, and like Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Ron DeSantis?  Acting like a Blue State governor?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next album, “The Jethro Tull Christmas Album,” on September 30, 2003, and the album featured new material as well as traditional Christmas favorites.  The band featured a quintet of Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jonathan Noyce (bass- Gary Moore) Doane Perry (drums and percussion), and Andy Giddings (keyboards).  It’s always glorious to see a band that no matter how music changes decade by decade manages to keep up and to continue demonstrating that it still can set the trends.  Sadly, this would be it for new music for about 20 years.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On June 03, 2003, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- re-released their first official ‘best of package,’ “M.U.- the Best of Jethro Tull” which featured slim pickings of 11 tracks culled from their earlier albums and again from the two albums following “Thick as a Brick” and “A Passion Play.”  The tracks, of course, are remastered and the name has changed to “The Essential Jethro Tull.”  If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “Living in the Past” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL.

  51. 2019 Saturday: University of Michigan student and Miss Michigan- Kathy Zhu- found herself stripped of her as a participant in the Miss World America because of past tweets (here we go again) and her conservative views.   As a proud conservative and supporter of President Donald J.

  52. 2020 Monday: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 14,567,109 confirmed cases, +206,658, 607,187 confirmed deaths, +3,902, and 8,193,138 confirmed recoveries, +121,201.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 3,834,208 confirmed cases, UP by 52,223 new cases, 142,601 confirmed deaths, UP by 372 new deaths, and 1,187,084 confirmed recoveries, UP by 8,566 new recoveries.   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: 391,538 confirmed cases, 7,694 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,381 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,043 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 46,946 confirmed cases, 1,447 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.

  54. 2020 Monday B: Statistics for shootings in Chicago over the weekend are in: 71 people shot and 12 dead.  In New York City, 30 people were shot over the weekend with 10 dead.  Where are Black Lives Matter?  Nowhere because BLM is little more than a left-wing hate group and not a group determined to protect black Americans from violence. 
  55. 2020 Monday C: St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner- a political hack of the highest degree- filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for having ‘brandished their weapons in an unlawful manner at PEACEFUL PROTESTERS’ threatening to burn down their home, murder, and rape them, and kill their dog.  This is what happens when former Nazi George Soros buys state attorneys general , secretaries of state, and district attorneys at all levels.  We must stop this POS from undermining the country.
  56. 2021 Tuesday: This looks like it’s going to be a busy week what with the Joestapo going door to door to give people their ‘shots.’  F**k them.

On January 03, 2003, Blodwyn Pig released their next LIVE album and what a good one it was: “Blues Live.”  Joining the fiery guitarist were the legendary Jack Lancaster (horns, woodwinds, violins, and flutes), Andy Pyle (bass), and Clive Bunker (drums) and a later lineup of Mick Abrams (guitars and vocals), Mike Summerland (bass and vocals), Graham Walker (drums), and Dave Lennox (keyboards and vocals)..  There are 15 great tunes on this CD culled from two superb concerts, an album we encourage everyone to buy as Mr. Abrams is one of the all-time great guitarists.  He should be on the list of all-time greats such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Kim Simmonds, and Alvin Lee.  We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite site for the absolute best in music and will then add it to your ever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved albums.  Enjoy.

  29. 1944 Tuesday: Emperor Hirohito’s government removed Japanese Premier Hideki Tojo from his post due to setbacks suffered by their country during World War II.  Meanwhile, in Nazi-controlled Europe, American forces fighting in France captured the important Normandy town of St. Lo.  On the Eastern Front, the Soviets are pushing hard at the Germans.  The Germans are clinging to positions in the western portion of the Soviet Union but the heady days of 1941 are long since gone and the Germans are the ones being encircled and crushed.

  52. 2014 Friday:  Forbes Media, controlled by the Forbes family, is selling a majority interest in the business to Integrated Whale Media Investments, based in Hong Kong; the deal is expected to provide Forbes with greater international exposure.   Meanwhile, the U.N.

  57. 2019 Thursday: In Israel’s Negev Desert, archaeologists discover the world’s ‘oldest mosque.’  However, the Jews were there first so Islam cannot use this ‘find’ as yet another pretense for claiming they own the land of the Jewish state.   Meanwhile, the city of West Palm Beach, Florida, confounded by hordes of homeless people clogging the city’s waterfront resorts to blasting two children’s songs- “Baby Shark” and “Raining Tacos” to drive the homeless away.  Not sure whether it worked or not but it sure as hell should have.  Horrible songs.  Meanwhile, fresh from condemning President Trump the previous day, the House of Representatives votes to table a resolution on whether to impeach the 45th president or not.  The vote was 332-95.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 1,334 confirmed cases, 23 confirmed deaths, and 994 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 45,943 confirmed cases, 1,444 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On June 05, 2001, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- released yet another official ‘best of package,’ “The Very Best of Jethro Tull” which featured 20 tracks spread out from across much of the storied band’s career.   If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “25th Anniversary Box Set” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL instead of Amazon or Alibaba or any other BIG ONLINE RETAILER.

  59. 2018 Tuesday: According to Bloomberg News, the NFL pulled in $14 billion in revenue for the 2017-2018 season and that it redistributed $8.1 billion back to the league’s 32 teams, each one receiving approximately $255 million.  The question is, when will the NFL expand the league to 36 teams by putting one each in San Antonio, Texas, Las Vegas, Nevada, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Honolulu, Hawaii?

  61. 2020 Friday: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 13,885,746 confirmed cases, UP by 231,301 cases, 592,573 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,399 deaths, and 7,779,604 confirmed recoveries, UP by 157,099 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 3,677,453 confirmed cases, UP by 143,548 new cases, 140,888 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,530 new deaths, and 1,076,823 confirmed recoveries, UP by 50,007 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).   
  62. 2020 Friday A: 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: 366,164 confirmed cases, UP 18,530, 7,475 confirmed deaths, UP by 248, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,311 confirmed cases, 22 confirmed deaths, and 975 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 44,413 confirmed cases, 1,427 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed 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, the Empire State: 405,551 confirmed number of cases, 32,446 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the numbers you murdering f**k!  YOU sent Xi Jinping Bat Flu-infected patients into rest homes where people were the most vulnerable and KILLED THEM.  We hope that when the inquiry occurs next month, that you find yourself doing time in a federal prison.   
  63. 2020 Friday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,671.95, DOWN 62.76 points (-0.23%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,503.19, UP 29.36 points (+0.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,224.73, UP 9.16 points (+0.28%).  The price of GOLD is $1,812.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $19.74 per troy ounce, -0.019 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $851.40 per troy oz, +1.80 (+0.21) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, -0.0035 (-0.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.57 per barrel, -0.02 (-0.05%).
  64. 2020 Friday C: The federal government carried out its third execution of the week of an Iowa meth dealer, Dustin Honken, 52, a POS who murdered government informants and children back in 1993.  He had been on death row in Terre Haute, Indiana, since 2005, awaiting execution.  Execute these criminal scumbags.   
  65. 2020 Friday D: Congressman John Lewis died today, a victim of pancreatic carcinoma.  A famed warrior for civil rights, he served as Georgia’s 5th District congressman since entering the House of Representatives in 1987.   He was 80 when he passed.  God bless you, Congressman Lewis!
  66. 2021 Saturday: Let’s hope it’s a slow news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One of the best live acts of the 1970s, Wild Turkey should have had a far longer career than what they did but thankfully, their final performances were preserved for posterity.  “Live in Edinburgh” came out on May 27, 2001, and it featured some heavy-duty rock and roll tracks delivered by one of the greatest bass players of all time, the amazing Glenn Cornick.  The band featured aforementioned amazing musician (bass, guitars, keyboards, harmonicas), Gary Pickford-Hopkins (vocals), Bernie Marsden (guitars), Mick Dyche (guitars/vocals), Jeff Jones and Kevin Currie (drums), and Steve Gurl (keyboards).   If you want to hear some amazing music by a little-known band by anyone who isn’t a Baby Boomer, please seek this album out and give it a good listen- you will be glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY JULY 16, 2021 #4,041

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

Friday, July 16, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, Mott, the British Lions, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[ii] Not sure when or if we will ever do the music of Loggins and Messina or of each member but if we are still here in 20 years, we most likely will.

[iii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[iv] We hope to celebrate the music of Johnny Winter and his brother, Edgar, at some point in the next two decades. 

[v] It is important to note that Deep State intelligence officials have been spinning all manner of tales as to Trump and the Russians to the point that everyone is confused, especially if they are inattentive.  As we found out in 2019 when the ‘investigation into Trump-Russian collusion’ led by former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller ended, there was never anything to the story yet people still believe that Trump colluded with the Russians to beat Hillary
Clinton.  Ask yourselves this: WHO would the Russians have wanted in the White House?  Hillary Clinton or Donald J. Trump?  Truthfully?  The answer is simple.  You know it in your heart.
