  53. 2014 Sunday: A North Korean court convicts 24-year-old Matthew Miller, one of three Americans currently held in that crazy nation, of unlawful entry into the country for spying and sentenced him to six years of hard labor.  These f**king North Koreans need to be nuked off the face of the planet along with their Chi-Com allies.
  54. 2015 Monday: In what many believe to have been a set-up event, Texas authorities arrest 14-year-old Ahmed “Clock Boy” Mohamed at his school following his presentation of his so-called ‘science project’ that looked suspiciously like a BOMB.  Being a Muslim, one would think he and his family would have done something else rather than present something appearing to be a BOMB.  Eventually, he would be released, both President Barack Hussein Obama and Facebook boy wonder Mark Zuckerberg sent supportive tweets.  Of course, the punk became the symbol of American intolerance and Islamophobia.  Where is he now?
  55. 2016 Wednesday: Imprisoned soldier Bradley Manning agrees to end his hunger strike when the U.S. military commits to his gender reassignment surgery thus making him Chelsea Manning.  This is the guy who helped WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange leak information on the Iraq War which embarrassed both the United States and current President Barack Hussein Obama.

  58. 2019 Saturday:  Only with the help of Iranian Revolutionary Guard direction and cash, Houthi rebels in Yemen carry out a stunning attack on Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq Oil Refinery with the use of drones carrying explosives.  The Saudis were caught with their pants down, the attack eliminated half of the country’s oil production and about five percent of the world’s which immediately drives oil prices UP.  Time to whack the Iranians and to eliminate the Houthi scum as a threat.
  59. 2020 Monday: Here are the figures for the carnage in Chicago over the past weekend: 53 people shot and 10 killed.  Next, down in Florida, disgraced gubernatorial candidate, Andrew Gillum, Democrat, caught in a hotel room with a male hooker and a crack pipe announced today that he is ‘bisexual.’  Okie dokie.   Speaking of Florida, Tropical Storm Sally, roiling off the west coast of Florida, is expected to be at hurricane strength when its expected landfall slams into Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.  Speaking of natural disasters, the out-of-control wildfires roaring through three western states have burned millions of acres.  The death toll currently is 24 in California, 10 in Oregon, and a toddler in Washington state.[vii]  “Pro-China Joe” Biden at his only campaign stop today in Wilmington, Delaware, blames President Trump for the catastrophe, calling him a ‘climate arsonist’ and noting that the United States faces four different calamities: (1) a crumbling economy; (2) a pandemic; (3) white supremacy/white privilege, and (4) out-of-control climate change for which, President Donald J. Trump bears responsibility for all.  Wow.  Meanwhile, in California, President Trump meets with the state’s leaders in Sacramento to discuss what must be done to help the state overcome the blazing forests.
  60. 2020 Monday A:  In Qatar, peace talks between the United States, the Afghani government, and the murderous Taliban continue.  Elsewhere, Politico reports that the Iranian regime is planning on assassinating U.S. ambassador to South Africa Lana Marks.  Let’s nuke Iran and get it over with, shall we?  Speaking of ambassadors, U.S. ambassador to communist China Terry Branstad announces he will be stepping down.  Branstad, as you all know, is the former governor of Iowa.  On the home front, liberal outrage continues to grow over President Trump’s MASSIVE rallies in Nevada the previous day in which, most were not wearing masks or socially distant from one another.  In response, the president called the gatherings, ‘peaceful protests.’  The Dems have no leg upon which to stand.  Speaking of Trump, national polls continue to show “Pro-China Joe” Biden cleaning Trump’s clock with an ‘insurmountable lead’ of 51-percent to 46-percent.  Elsewhere, Amazon.com announces it will be hiring another 100,000 workers so it can keep up with the demand for goods.  Employees will begin at $15 per hour. 
  61. 2020 Monday B:  Sadly, New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says this year’s Thanksgiving Day Macy’s parade will be VIRTUAL.  NASA reports that a sign of life exists in the atmosphere of Venus, the second-most inner planet of the Solar System, phosphine gas which corresponds with microorganisms that can live without oxygen such as at a sewage treatment plant.  It is interesting to note that between 33 to 38 miles above the surface of the inhospitable planet is found a region comparable to temperatures and pressures found on planet Earth.  Fascinating if this is true.  We shall see.  Folks, we believe life exists across the Universe, which places we consider to be inhospitable to human life can host other forms of life.  Elsewhere, Jesse Watters on the Fox News Channel’s “The Five” showed a clip of ghosts captured on the Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania.  We believe this to be true, too.

Bill Johnson, R-OH 6th congressional district, told Newsmax today that ‘Joe Biden’s team must apologize to the American people or admit that their boss is unfit to hold office.’   Still, the Biden regime pulled together Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Hussein Obama to go out and raise money to help the unvetted Afghan refugees pouring into the country.  Speaking of Afghanistan, security officials now claim that al-Qaida could reconstitute itself within two years.  What?  They have been there all along, folks.

  74. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Frequently on the wrong side of most things related to COVID-19, Dr. Ashish Jha says that ‘the FDA will likely show the need for Chi-Vi vaccine booster shots’ even as various countries around the world are saying there’s no need for booster shots.  (Note- see ‘follow the money’ below when it comes to vaccine manufacturing companies’ stock prices.  The Deep State apparatchiks and elected politicians all heavily invest in these companies, companies to which they direct billions of dollars).
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Even though more Americans are shying away from the questionable COVID-19 vaccines, the Biden regime is giving ALL federal employees until November 22 to get vaccinated or get terminated.  F**k you, Joe.  Resistance abounds however, as West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey, Republican, is working with sister states to resist the Biden regime’s COVID-19 vaccine mandates.   Ditto says Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX- who says RED STATES will challenge the authoritarian COVID-19 vaccine mandates.  Then, we have losers such as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci calling for ‘vaccine mandates for all air travel.’  However, a judge in New York says that ‘exceptions must be made for religious exemptions in the Empire State.’  That is going to drive them bat crap crazy.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.71 (2) AstraZeneca $55.96 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.80 (4) BioNTech $334.88 (5) Moderna $427.71.

  80. 2021 Tuesday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump endorses Anna Paulina Luna for the seat left vacant by Charlie Crist, Florida’s 13th congressional district.  Once governor of the Sunshine State, Crist is going to take a run at “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis in November 2022.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News I– Liberals are celebrating senile Joe Biden after yesterday’s public appearance when he signed the cross after mentioning the name of President Donald J. Trump.  Then, senile Joe said that California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder is a ‘Trump clone.’  Yeah, we know, according to the Los Angeles Times, Larry Elder is the ‘black face of white supremacism.’  Balderdash!  In other news related to the usurper in the White House, USMC Recon Leader Chad Robichaux slams the loser in a new TV ad for his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The FBI has fired its lead investigator in the ‘plot’ to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer.  What’s up?  Too many FBI agents involved in this ‘scam abduction?’  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice has ordered scaling back on police chokeholds and ‘no-knock’ warrants.  The DOJ is also launching a civil rights probe into Peach State prisons.  My, my, my!
  83. : Political News I– Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to take on communist China instead of sitting around dithering in his Delaware basement.  Next, Newsmax’ White House reporter Emerald Robinson asked a question this morning which every American wants to know: WHO is shutting down the feed whenever slobbering Joe Biden begins to speak?  In fact, during his testimony before the U.S. Senate today, Senator Jim Risch, R-ID, asked Secretary “Bullshit” Blinken who has this authority which caused the startled secretary to hem and haw all over the place.
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News II– Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, says that the Biden regime’s planned tax hikes on the American people are going to hit them at the wrong time (not that tax hikes are ever good).   Rep. Drew Ferguson, R-GA 3rd congressional district, says the tax hikes will ‘leave businesses gutted.’ Speaking of taxes, the Internal Revenue Service is going to monitor ALL transactions over $600.00.  In other news that is no shock to us, former staffers of Rep. Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, accuse this hateful lefty of mistreatment and abuse.  Not surprising, folks, she seems like a ‘bi**h to us.
  85. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News III– Bob Woodward’s book, “Peril,” set for general release next week, is shocking the American people.  Mr. Woodward demonstrates what most Americans see as a coup against President Donald J. Trump after January 6, 2021, in which, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley got military leaders and CIA head Gina Haspel to swear allegiance to him in case they had to eject the rightful president from the White House.  He also contacted his Chi-Com counterpart to let the communist know that if Trump launched a war against the communist regime in his final days, i.e., a ‘wag the dog operation,’ he would let the Chi-Coms know before the first bombs began falling.  This is HIGH TREASON folks and General Milley must meet his end atop the gallows.  
  86. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News IV– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says he will ‘filibuster any attempt by the Biden regime to raise the debt ceiling.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Paul Gosar, R-AZ 4th congressional district, produced a genius idea today: ALL House leaders should wear body cameras so that more transparency and honesty can be achieved.  Great idea, Congressman.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, is making his far-left colleagues go insane.  He continues to claim that he will NOT support his party’s $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.’  This has people like Senator Bernie Sanders and losers such as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez going after him tooth and nail.  Wow.  Finally, it appears that Vice President Mike Pence is preparing to run in 2024.  Huh?
  87. 2021 Tuesday U: U.S. Senate News I– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken sat before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today to answer questions from the lawmakers.  U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was asked to come but refused the invitation.  A nonplused Senator Bob “Cho-Mo” Menendez, DS-NJ, and committee chairman threatened he might send Secretary Austin a subpoena.
  88. 2021 Tuesday V: Social Media News– Following the brave tweets launched by entertainer Nikki Minaj blowing the lid off the COVID-19 vaccine crap, Twitter would not bow down to the demands by people such as noted racist Joy “Pro-Democracy” Reid and other losers such as she by saying her tweets did not violate their rules.   Good.  Free speech is NEVER wrong.  We are not living in George Orwell’s world yet.  In other social media news, attacks on brain-dead liberal Democrats- maskless ones at that- who attended last night’s Met affair are going viral, especially after Sandy “The Fly” Cortez wore a $35,000 dress that said ‘tax the rich’ on her backside at the $30,000 per plate event.  What a bunch of losers.
  89. 2021 Tuesday W: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Liberals are dancing in the streets: conservative radio talk show host, Bob Enyart of Denver, who stood against the Chi-Vi vaccines has reportedly died from the Chi-Vi.  Liberals love stuff like this the sick f**ks.
  90. 2021 Tuesday X: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– WOKE sissies in California are going to rename world famous ski resort Squaw Valley to something else that won’t offend Injuns.  Wow.  Bet they feel REAL GOOD.  (Note- how about doing something good for the long-suffering people of the state like stamping out crime, ending homelessness, handing illegal aliens over to ICE for deportation, clearcutting the forests, getting back to water infrastructure, and fixing the streets?  Nope.  All California wants to do is to be WOKE).  Meanwhile, attention ALL lefties out there: the University of Nebraska is going to offer a minor in ‘racial justice, equity, and inclusion.’  Boy, they will be lining up for that sham degree.
  91. 2021 Tuesday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1694 what with a $383 million jackpot on the line: 04, 13, 19, 63, 64, and Mega 16.  Out of 114,572 winning tickets, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,355 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday Z: The Wrap-Up– It appears that the downtrodden people of California voted in favor of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to finish his term and thus run for a second term next year.  The results were almost instantaneous tonight what with tens of thousands of reports of people’s votes already being cast for them.  Wow.
  93. 2022 Wednesday: Observation of the Day- I find it absolutely mind-blowing that people still listen to what the media says when it comes to polling and the chances of electoral victory for Republicans.  I hate to be a downer for the Dems but I suspect the United States Senate is going to swing hard to the right and the Dems are going to be wailing like the scum they are.  I think every contest in which, Republicans are competing with Dems in this year’s election cycle when it comes to the U.S. Senate are swinging our way.  Raiding President Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and the horrifyingly stupid and evil speech ‘Slobbering Joe’ Biden gave before a backlit red wall are becoming the final daggers in their socialist chests.  Likewise, I expect the House is going to swing our way as why would that crotchety bag of bones, over-Botox-ed Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi be floating the idea that she wants to become U.S. ambassador to Italy?  She sees the writing on the wall, and she understands that she and her lunatic left-wing socialist allies have once again overplayed their hands and are facing Armageddon in less than two months.  It is going to be glorious, and I can’t wait to dance on their political graves.  Let’s vote these bottom-feeding reprobates out of office in one big bloodletting.  Hey, Mitch McConnell- how about getting on board with the oncoming tidal wave?  What do YOU think- Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.                                            

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Working like rock-and-roll madmen, Cheap Trick returned with their tertiary effort, “Heaven Tonight” which continued to drive the band up the rock and roll charts.  The lineup featured the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Unlike many bands of the period, Cheap Trick combined some of the hardest and occasionally darkest rock-and-roll chops with some pop music peaks.  Thus we have the radio classic, “Surrender,” that one continues hearing to this day on radio stations as well as the dark title track.  We also have “California Man” and “Oh, Claire,” the last of which is a ‘hidden track’ on the album.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

Joe Biden, of Delaware, before a raucous crowd outside the Old State Capitol in Springfield, Illinois.  We here at the blog believe that Obama chose Biden so as if anyone thought of assassinating Obama should he win the White House in 2008, the nation would be stuck with CHOMO Joe, a horrible president.

  69. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.394 per gallon, $2.974 in Florida, $4.068 in Hawaii, and $3.909 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other location- Rhode Island: $3.060.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Lithuania: $5.698 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,676,366,080,523 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Saudi Arabia 2, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea with $132 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  70. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As things in Afghanistan continue going to hell, at least one Afghan soldier was killed by Taliban thugs outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport and three others wounded in action.   Meanwhile, U.S. Embassy staff in Kabul reports harrowing experiences by those who manage to get through the cordon outside the HKIA.  As if this isn’t bad enough, the Taliban told the Biden regime that ‘IF the U.S. is not out of the country by the deadline of August 31, that will be crossing their RED LINE.’  Add to this humiliation the fact that the Chi-Coms are laughing at their stooge in the White House, heaping insult atop the old codger on state-run media.  (Note- here’s a good one: A new report says that 229 ex-Gitmo detainees have returned to the War on Terror as we all knew they would).
  71. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 152 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xvii] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 59 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $740,075,040.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $255,043,156,448.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,624,352.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,624,354.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  72. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The FDA has given the Pfizer-BioNTech Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine full approval which is going to lead to loads of problems as we shall see.  First of all, Pentagon spokesman Admiral John Kirby said today that ‘ALL U.S. military personnel must get the vaccine- or else.’  Next, U.S. Surgeon General Admiral Vivek Murthy said today that he expects more businesses and universities to impose vaccine mandates on customers and students since the FDA cleared the vaccine.
  73. 2021 Monday I: Health and Medical Alerts– The Food and Drug Administration is warning U.S. citizens NOT to use Ivermectin to treat the Chi-Com Kung Flu Virus.  Meanwhile, a new report that came out and then seemed to vanish suggests that vaccinated people are more inclined to come down with serious illnesses than unvaccinated people than previously thought.  NO f—king way any of us plan to get this crap vaccine.  Dr. Ben Carson says that ‘vaccine mandates are shaping a terrible future.’
  74. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says ‘yes, there is mask fatigue, but everyone is going to have to continue wearing them’ even as we see pictures of the big soiree held by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian hypocrite, over the weekend where NO ONE but the servers wore masks.  What a farce, what a joke, what bulls**t but apparently when a Democrat hosts a $29,000 per plate party and no one but the staff wears masks, why should any of the rest of us wear masks?  We have no intention of bowing down to this crap anymore.  Speaking of Democrats, New York judges are ordering that ALL defendants get vaccinated for the Bat Flu or else.  What is up with all these threats?  Joe Biden said today that ‘since the FDA approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, he expects more businesses to demand that ALL employees get vaccinated or lose their jobs.  Finally, the fake news has terrified enough people that a poll says 40-percent of the American people are less likely to fly on airlines if the mask mandates go by the wayside.
  75. 2021 Monday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $49.93 (2) AstraZeneca $58.80 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.61 (4) BioNTech $382.10 (5) Moderna $411.89.
  76. 2021 Monday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.96 (2) General Dynamics: $198.01 (3) Boeing: $219.40 (4) Lockheed Martin: $357.35 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $362.68.
  77. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden urges the U.S. Supreme Court to keep his evictions moratorium in place.  Speaking of the decrepit regime leader, his approval ratings have dropped below the fifties to 48-percent (which in all truth- without the Fake News interference- is most likely down in the low thirties at best).
  78. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– National Security Advisor Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan said this morning that ‘Joe Biden won’t rule out sending MORE troops to Afghanistan to help beleaguered Americans and Afghan allies trying to get through the cordon surrounding the Hamid Karzai International Airport.’  (Note- Joe is going to get us into a wider war.  Someone please tell the reprobate losers Susan Rice and Barack Hussein Obama to STOP destroying the country).  Even more shocking is that an Axios report says that the Biden regime is NOT expected to fire ANY OFFICIALS over the ongoing debacle in Afghanistan as doing so would mean the regime would have to admit that it screwed everything up.
  79. 2021 Monday O: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Police in Portland, Oregon, are investigating a shooting incident between the Proud Boys and Antifa punks.  Wouldn’t it be great if the police of Portland and of the state actually did their jobs?  Speaking of the Proud Boys, leader Enrique Tarrio gets five months in the slammer for having burned a frigging Black Lives Matter flag.  What a load of crap but that is what happens when a fake regime is in the White House.
  80. 2021 Monday P: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov spent his last day in office by saying to his accusers, ‘someday the truth is going to come out’ as to how he was railroaded out of office.  Still, the loser can’t make any friends what him leaving his dog behind in the gubernatorial mansion and his commuting the sentences of FOUR CONVICTED MURDERERS.  Public opinion is staunchly deadest against these actions and yet, the outgoing governor did it anyway.  We expect California’s loser Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to do the same thing in the (hopeful) waning days of his regime seeing as how millions of Californians are anxious to see him go.
  81. 2021 Monday Q: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, tested positive for the Chi-Vi today after testing positive last week.  Speaking of Governor Abbott, Tucker Carlson on Fox News this evening asked WHEN the Lone Star State’s governor is going to deploy troops to the southern border.
  82. 2021 Monday R: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– Here are the results for the Powerball Monday Night Draw #875 what with a $293 million jackpot on the line: 17, 36, 47, 60, 61, and Mega 15.  Out of 43,992 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 24 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $495.
  83. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Get this- Joe Biden’s aides reportedly were afraid to challenge their boss’ timeline on fleeing Afghanistan.  Who is fearful of Joe Biden?  What a load of crap.  The regime’s apparatchiks continue trying to make it appear that this senile old POS is somehow running the show.  The man can’t even tell his ass from a hole in the ground.  In other whacked out news of the day, everyone must look into the 30/30 Plan.  You won’t find it on a normal browser, use Duck-Duck Go or another secured browser to see the bulls**t the federal government is doing to U.S. farmers.  They are paying them to DESTROY croplands and to dump out any oil they may have so by 2030, 30-percent of the land in the U.S. will be in ‘conservation.’  This also is going to create dependence upon foreign sources of food.  This is frigging crazy.
  84. 2022 Tuesday: For now, unlike my colleagues, I am going to keep my thoughts to myself.  There are a whole lot of intrusions out there seeking to crash our servers.  It is what it is.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

  22. 1945 Saturday: A U.S. Army bomber crashed into the 79th floor of the Empire State Building in New York City, killing 14 people and injuring many more.  Meanwhile, the Senate voted 89-2 ratifying the United Nations Charter.

  45. 2011 Thursday: Astronomers identify a Trojan asteroid orbiting on the same path as the Earth around the Sun; it poses no danger to Earth because it sits in a gravitational ‘sweet spot’.  Meanwhile, as the Obama administration continues its fight to get the debt ceiling raised so it can continue its out-of-control spending spree, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, RINO-OH, puts the kibosh on a vote on the floor to do just that.  He says, ‘maybe tomorrow.’  Democrats are going berserk.

  51. 2017 Friday:  In the U.S. Senate, the GOP attempted to repeal Obamacare via a ‘skinny vote’ yet Sen. John McCain, a Republican, joins the Democrats to vote the measure down, final vote 51-49.  What a POS.  Barack Hussein Obama[ix] beat Sen. McCain like an old drum on Election Day in 2016, belittled him over the years, and yet, the old war horse- hating Donald Trump as much as he does- voted to keep the signature legislation of his political enemy.  Damned flipping RINOS!  Meanwhile, President Trump appoints General John Kelly his new chief-of-staff. [x]  
  52. 2018 Saturday: Having burnt more than 80,000 acres in its path, the out-of-control Carr Fire reaches Redding, California, claiming at least 5 lives, injuring countless others, and destroying numerous properties.  The liberal Democrats screech “GLOBAL WARMING!” yet everyone knows it is poor forest management as stipulated by the Democratic Party as well as their loathness about building dams and constructing water reclamation projects.
  53. 2019 Sunday: The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is outed as the first guest editor at the United Kingdom version of Vogue Magazine, the first guest in 103 years.  She would bear partial responsibility with her husband, Prince Harry, for damaging the British Royal Family.  That is what you get when you marry an American skank.
  54. 2020 Tuesday: Much to the delight of their uber-left base, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee overseeing ‘oversight’ on the Dept. of Justice rip U.S. Attorney-General Bill Barr a new one by asking questions and then disallowing the AG to answer them properly.  The amount of political grandstanding was absolutely horrible but then, those are the Democratic-Socialists who are destroying our country.  GOP committee members did their best to even the score but that becomes impossible when there are more, angry, hateful Dems on the committee than Republicans.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s Prevagen must be working because after giving a speech, he even answered some questions, going off-script several times but not quite as much as we are generally used to seeing so either his handlers were putting in answers to pre-asked questions or the former vice president had a brief moment of lucidity.  He promised to make his VP choice known next week.
  55. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 16,660,138 confirmed cases, UP by 263,184 cases, 658,813 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,911 deaths, and 9,699,116 confirmed recoveries, UP by 186,555 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,426,281 confirmed cases, UP by 58,202 new cases, 151,374 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,175 new deaths, and 2,151,219 confirmed recoveries, UP by 841,971 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries seems somewhat impossible as every day, the listed number of recoveries is extremely low.  Perhaps more states have reported recoveries yet if you look at the breakdown of the states, far fewer have reported so something is going on…).   
  56. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics 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: 466,550 confirmed cases, 8,518 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,757 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,205 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 54,205 confirmed cases, 1,548 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, the Empire State: 412,878 confirmed number of cases, 25,126 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 honest numbers you suck-eyed blowfish, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.

  59. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 309,614 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 94,464 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  63. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.336 per gallon, $2.978 in Florida, $4.087 in Hawaii, and $3.839 in Washington state. [xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.395.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Mali: $4.572 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,575,821,402,785 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 127 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the unmitigated disaster along our southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it other than to say some stupid stuff here and then begin cackling like a rural crow.  It’s also Day No. 33 since her one and only visit to the border to view the crisis firsthand.  What an embarrassment to not only the country but to the entire flipping world.   Next, here are the numbers as presented by Pro-Freedom One America News: first, here is the cost this day for caring for the invaders: $584,652,608.  Second, here is the cost for caring for the alien invaders this year: $228,529,913,856.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who swept across the border just this year: 2,342,248.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE number of illegals estimated to be lurking within the shadows of the United States as we speak: 36,342,248.  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said from our inception back in the early spring of 2009 that the numbers THEN were around 35-50 million illegal aliens whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million frigging illegal aliens.  Round them up, brand them, and then deport every single flipping one of the scoundrels back to the s—hole countries from whence they came.  NOW.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The moron governor of California- Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom- struggling to keep his job- today granted Medi-Cal insurance to ALL illegal aliens in the state over the age of 50 which is around 250,000 of them at taxpayer costs.  We hope to get you out of office and then begin rounding this refuse up and sending it back to whence it came.  Bastards.
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Imprisoned freedom fighter Alexei Navalny is urging ALL Russians to mobilize ahead of the September elections.   In other news, the fifth high-ranking Cuban military officer or politician has mysteriously died.  They must have been standing with the Cuban people against the totalitarian, communist government.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are courting the Taliban so they can come into the hellhole of a country and rape it of its natural resources while constructing their Belt and Road communist takeover project.  (We hope the Chi-Coms become embroiled in yet another war in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires’ for at least 40 years- it would serve them right).   In other overseas news, for some unknown reason, Joe Biden is imposing NEW SANCTIONS on Syria.  Uh, okay.  WHY?  They are NOT our problem.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The National Football League is going to require vaccinated players to wear RED wristbands and unvaccinated players to wear YELLOW wristbands (while terminating coaches and staff who won’t get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines).   In other Chi-Vi news, the U.S. House of Representatives physician, Dr. Brian Monahan, a Pelosi hack, has ordered EVERYONE to wear masks in the House.  NO exceptions.  Meanwhile, so-called ‘rare’ BREAKTHROUGH cases of the Chi-Vi are slamming into fully vaccinated citizens, something mumbling, stumbling old ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden says is ‘impossible.’    
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, vaccinated U.S. travelers won’t have to quarantine upon arrival in Great Britain. Wow.  Elsewhere, New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio gave up on giving people a free bag of French fries and is now offering $100 to anyone who will go out and get vaccinated.  F**k him.  Elsewhere, intelligent politicians and medical professionals have pointed out that the rates of hospitalizations for the China Virus are a better indicator as to how bad the ongoing pandemic is which means it is NOT as bad as what the Democrats are pushing because fewer people are being hospitalized for the Kung Flu.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says he’s ‘not flipflopped, no, the virus has changed.’  Elsewhere, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, famed legal scholar, author, and professor said to Newsmax that the ‘courts will likely back COVID-19 vaccination mandates.’  Scary.  MARK OF THE BEAST to be sure… (Interesting note- Forbes Magazine reports that there are 40 NEW BILLIONAIRES who have become fabulously wealthy from the Chi-Com lab-generated pandemic).
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Meanwhile, as more images of COVID-19-infected illegal aliens appear across the country, more and more Americans on all sides of the political aisle are growing increasingly angrier.  There are reports of sick illegals being dumped all across the U.S.- most notably in RED states and cities- and left in the streets.  There, they spread not only the Wuhan Virus but other foul and detestable diseases that can or are causing a national health emergency.  A national reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon and with House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s margin being slashed to just THREE with the election of Republican Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th congressional district, we hope that reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon.
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– Top Democrats are encouraging brain-dead Joe Biden to negate $50,000 loan debt per student borrower.  This is more money the federal government is going to borrow from the Chi-Coms.  Talk about a National Security issue.  Man, oh, man.   In other news, the new DEATH TAX the Democratic-Socialist Party is proposing could cost 1 million jobs and $1 trillion of U.S. GDP over the next 10 years.  WTF is wrong with these SOBs?   In other news, Senate Republicans have agreed to $1 trillion in infrastructure spending. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, that she ‘stacked the January 06, 2021 (sham) select committee’ with a bunch of party apparatchiks and RINO Republicans.  Speaking of Mumbles, Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, lit up the House speaker over her demand that everyone wear masks while allowing millions of illegals into the country and then distributing them across the United States without masks and COVID-19 tests.  WTF is up with that?
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– An imbecile named Thomas Patrick Connally Jr. was charged in a Maryland federal court with threatening to murder Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and his family as well as the National Institute of Health director, Dr. Francis Collins.  Apparently, the bonehead was sending threatening emails to Dr. Fauci, Dr. Collins, and to others and now must pay the piper.  There are always some in every crowd.  We would never call for anyone to be attacked, assaulted, raped, robbed, or beaten.  Like Democrats, we might participate in schadenfreude as do the Dems and frankly, millions of their supporters, we would never encourage any illegal act, even when we jokingly talk about ‘lead to the back of the head’ in the Annual Lavrentiy Beria contests.  It’s all for a hoot.  In other crime news, BIG DEMOCRAT donor (and big friend of the Clintons) Ed Buck from West Hollywood, California, was convicted on all nine counts of giving methamphetamine to young black men for sex, two of whom died.  Wow.   Finally, in Joe Biden’s America, convicted pedophile and rapist Dr. Larry Nassar received COVID-19 stimulus checks but has yet to pay restitution to his victims.  ONLY in Joe Biden’s America…speaking of Joe’s America, the Department of Justice is dropping investigations into nursing home deaths in Michigan and New York.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Big Tech News– Apple beats fiscal Q3 earnings expectations.  Likewise, Alphabet- the parent company of Google- is reporting surging ad revenues.   Speaking of Google, they are delaying the return of employees to their office while mandating ALL employees get one of the Chi-Vi vaccines before they do or to find another job.
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, today, famed bassist and vocalist with the ‘Little ole Band from Texas’- ZZ Top- Dusty Hill died in his sleep this morning at the age of 72.  He died in Houston, Texas, and his death was reported by his two band mates, Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard.  According to his wishes, the band will continue to perform their fiery brand of Texas-Deep South Blues.  God bless you, Dusty, have a glorious afterlife!
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3581 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 20, 24, 32, 35, 39, and Mega 25.  Out of 85,662 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $7,862 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Valero, Salinas, CA 93906; (2) Smart & Final in Goleta, CA 93117; (3) Raley’s in Sacramento, CA 95826; and (4) Shell in Palmdale, CA 93551.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #867 with a jackpot of $186 million up for grabs: 25, 30, 53, 59, 60, and Powerball 05.  Stick around for the results.  Update: Out of 77,278 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $10,200.
  76. 2022 Thursday: California’s incredibly stupid governor, pretty boy Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, has bitten off far more than his pursy little lips can chew: he has launched ads against Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas.  For some reason known only to his petulant little mind, Governor Newsom seems to believe he has a record on which to run.  Wrong!  His record is one of failure and the ONLY reason he survived his recall election is because the GOP did not get behind any of his opponents seeking to unseat the little prick.  I have said it before and will say it yet again: California is not a LOST state.  We are a state waiting to explode.  IF only the GOP would come in here and help us push Brian Dahle across the finish line, we could get this bum out of office.  Perhaps if the GOP won’t do it, we cannot wait to see the ads the governors of Texas and Florida are going to launch at him come late October.  Going to be some grisly but hilarious s**t, we expect.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys record label released “Carl and the Passions- So Tough” and “Holland” on one compact disc on April 21, 2003.  Here is the overview of each: The next album by the Beach Boys marked a distinct move into much more social consciousness that began on the preceding album.  The Beach Boys were touring college and university campuses, were all about conservation, the grandfather of today’s loony tunes ‘green movement.’  Beards were getting longer, hair well past the collars and what with the departure of Bruce Johnston- asked to leave because he would not grow a beard, embrace Transcendental Meditation- the band brought into South African musicians, BLACK MUSICIANS to complete the social consciousness move.  Thus, we have a new album, “Carl and the Passions- So Tough,” an album that came out on May 15, 1972.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals- Dennis was having hand problems due to a major cut that prevented him from pounding the skins).  Next, here is the overview of “Holland”:  The next album from the Beach Boys- “Holland”- came out on January 08, 1973 and was one of their best.  The band at this time had abandoned the West Coast for the Atlantic coast- in Holland- and produced some stunning material.  The lineup once again featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals).  Every tune on this album is excellent.  For less than $20, you can add not one but two albums to your collection in one shot.  Enjoy.

[i] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

[ii] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[iii] 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.

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

[v] 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.

[vi] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

[viii] 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.

[ix] Millions of Americans 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.

[x] We would come to learn later that Gen. John Kelly was a dishonorable man who worked against the Trump agenda instead of working to help his boss.  The man is a disgraceful swamp creature and should spend the rest of his days living in shame.

  50. 2003 Thursday: The U.S. put a $25 million bounty on Saddam Hussein, and $15 million apiece for each of his two murderous sons.  The $30 million reward for Odai and Qusai Hussein went to a tipster whose information led U.S. troops to their hideout, where the brothers died in a violent gun-battle.

  60. 2020 Friday: Today, President Donald J. Trump gave a superb speech in South Dakota at Mount Rushmore.  Native American groups protest it saying it’s ‘their land, they want it back, etc., etc.,’ but we say, ‘enough is enough.’  Meanwhile, the NFL franchise the Washington Redskins say they are open to changing their name to keep up with the times.  May we proffer a suggestion: how about the Washington Black Lives Matter, can you pander any better than that?   In Moscow, President Vladimir Putin laughs at the U.S. Embassy which is flying the RAINBOW flag overhead.  Can we not embarrass ourselves any more than this?  For Christ’s sake!

[xvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,480,072,652,159 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position.

  72. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Chi-Com hacking group, ‘Indigozebra,’ is getting the blame for hacking into more than 1,000 businesses and infecting their computers with ransomware.  That’s the Chi-Coms for you.  Meanwhile, Israel is investigating a half-assed missile attack on one of its cargo ships plying the waters of the northern Indian Ocean.  The CSAV Tyndall, owned and operated by Israel until recently suffered minor damage from a missile suspected to be from Iran.  Israel, drop a nuke on those backward bastards.  Light them up!

Pete Sessions, R-TX 17th congressional district, says that the ‘January 06, 2021 ‘probe’ is a load of partisan crap.’  In other political news, Joe Biden named Amy Gutmann to be U.S. ambassador to Germany.
  74. 2021 Saturday I: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Some wag fired 23 shots into the home of Alabama Senator Vivian Davis Figures.  Since she is a Democrat, it was probably a Jussie Smollett-style setup to gin up anger among certain communities so as to get the pot boiling before summer truly gets underway.   In other news, police take 11 men into custody after a tense standoff between the heavily armed individuals and the cops in Wakefield, Massachusetts.  In other crime-related news, Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot is blaming- get this- President Donald J.

  77. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Governor Ron DeSantis,[xviii] R-FL, signs the most pro-law enforcement bill on the books and also has consequences for violent rioters.  God bless you, sir!  Next, a poll in New York state says that ’54-percent of the voters view Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Go, aka the Gropin’ Gov, with disdain.  Another poll tried to say the voters would vote for this POS again, but no one believes that.  Speaking of the Empire State, a judge rules that the case, N.Y. v. Amazon will remain at the state level and not move up the chain to the federal level.   In other interesting “Killer” Cuomo news, N.Y. Attorney General Leticia James may be ‘reviewing’ the erstwhile governor’s autobiographical ‘novel’ of the wonderful job he did during the Chinese Virus pandemic, the one in which, he consigned tens of thousands of New York’s elderly and ill to their deaths.
  78. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– The Texas House of Representatives okays a bill dropping permits to open-carry firearms in the state.  Speaking of the Lone Star State, the former Austin Police Department detective sought in the shooting deaths of three people yesterday has been scooped up in police custody.   Next, President Donald J. Trump advises decrepit Joe Biden NOT to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan on the symbolic date of September 11, 2021, the 20-year-anniversary of the Islamist attack on New York City, on the Pentagon, and on a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Will old drooling Joe Biden listen to the sage advice?  Most likely not. 
  79. 2021 Monday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Elsewhere, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is putting forth a bill demanding the expulsion of lunatic Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, over her visit to Minnesota over the weekend to encourage VIOLENCE no matter the outcome of the murder trial of Officer Derek Chauvin.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is standing by her fellow octogenarian by saying, “She did nothing wrong.”  Both of these imbeciles must be voted out of office or impeached and removed.   In the case of “Prune Face” Waters, she should be doing time prison.  (Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Maxine Waters singlehandedly may have caused a mistrial due to her careless words.’[xix]   In other news, as the deathwatch of Putin critic Alexei Navalny begins, Joe Biden begins uttering some incoherent words in defense of the imprisoned freedom fighter.
  80. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Steve Stivers, R-OH 15th congressional district is resigning his seat to head his state’s Chamber of Commerce.   Next, a Jewish coalition may expel the Zionists of America for them being critical of radical anti-Semite scum such as Congresswomen Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, by calling them out for their anti-Israel bigotry.  What did ZOA say wrong?   Next, Republican leaders are demanding a meeting with ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris so they can discuss the BORDER CRISIS, the one a word-slurring Joe Biden long claimed it wasn’t but now says it is and do something about it.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris has crisscrossed the country but has gone NOWHERE near the border since coming into office.  Speaking of the BORDER CRISIS, Joe Biden issued new rules to Customs and Border Patrol telling them ‘NO LONGER can they use the words ‘illegal alien’ and ‘assimilation’ when discussing the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS POURING ACROSS THE SOUTHERN BORDER.’  WTF?   Speaking of ILLEGALS, Joe Biden’s handlers pledge that fuddled old Joe is going to raise the numbers of REFUGEES accepted into the country but that his original goal of hundreds of thousands may not occur.   (Interesting note- late this afternoon, the White House began walking back Joe Biden’s mumbled statements about the ‘crisis’ on the southern border.  Maybe they’ll CANCEL JOE?).
  81. 2021 Monday J: INTERESTING HYPOCRISY OF THE DAY–  Facebook is now censoring criticism of Black Lives Matter skank Patrice Cullors who has purchased several million dollars’ worth of real estate using money donated to BLM by dimwits such as FB cofounder Dustin Moskovitz who gave $5 million to the Marxist organization.  We cannot have people calling out LIBERAL HYPOCRISY now can we and so the great social media platform won’t let anyone call them out on it.
  82. 2021 Monday K: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT– After the defense wrapped up its closing arguments in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, the jury now has the case and cities from Minneapolis to Chicago to Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California, to Portland, Oregon, are all preparing for out-of-control riots should he be acquitted on ALL charges.  Judge Peter Cahill says, ‘it will be an easy appeal what with Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters urging VIOLENCE on American society NO MATTER WHAT VERDICT THE JURY DELIVERS.  (Note- we have said this and will continue saying it, ‘we think Officer Chauvin is going to get off.  Completely.  The blame will rest on liberal Democrats.  Period.  We think that had not the liberals involved themselves, had not the city of Minneapolis paid George Floyd’s family in the week prior to the start of the trial, they may have gotten a just verdict whereas now- as with George Zimmerman, aka the “White Hispanic,” they won’t get the verdict they seek.  IF they do, Chauvin will beat it on appeal).

Mondale who served under President Jimmy Carter from January 20, 1977, to January 20, 1981, died today in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the age of 93.  He also was the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 1984 with New York Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro, D-NY 9th congressional district as his running mate.  They were soundly defeated by President Ronald Reagan.  Bon voyage, Mr. Vice President.   In other notable news, we learn today that Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick did not die from having his head ‘stoved in with a fire extinguisher’ as multiple media sources proclaimed for months on end during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021, but from a combination of two strokes caused by chemical irritants sprayed in his face by Antifa ‘protesters.’

[i] 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.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

[iv] Nationalist China is FREE China, the true owners of mainland China.  Driven off the mainland by the Reds in 1948-49 to the island of Formosa, renamed Taiwan, these people held the seat in the United Nations now held by the communists.  Many believe it is high time we return to a Two-China Policy that would recognize both the Free and the communist governments would benefit the entire world.  Many also believe it is time to boot Red China out of the UN and welcome Taiwan back in, especially since the communists gave the world the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis.

[v] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We promoted the music of both Koss and Back Street Crawler when we did the previous batch of famed British bands.

[viii] We are hopeful we will present the music of the Band and of its individual members sometime in 2024-2025.  Great music by a superb band

[x] 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.

  44. 2003 Sunday: Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein warned that if Iraq were attacked, it would take the war anywhere in the world “wherever there is sky, land or water.”  President George W. Bush gave the United Nations one more day to find a diplomatic solution to the standoff.     Elsewhere, American activist Rachel Corrie, 23, lost her life when an Israeli bulldozer crushed her as she was trying to block the demolition of a Palestinian home in the Gaza Strip.  No one asked the leftist to be there, and it should be clear to all that she was pretty damned stupid to put herself between the home of a terrorist and an Israeli bulldozer.  No sympathy for her.
  45. 2004 Tuesday: as things in the Iraq War continue going from bad to worse, President George W. Bush begs his Coalition allies to stick it out with the U.S.  Democrats in the U.S. are doing everything to transform the war into one of major disaster so they can elect a Democrat in November.
  46. 2005 Wednesday: The Iranians execute a serial killer on this date after giving him 100 lashes.  Mohammed Bijeh, aka the Tehran Desert Vampire, was convicted of being a murderous pedophile.  Between March 2003 and September 2004, this scumbag confessed to raping and murdering at least 16 boys (and two adults) between the ages of 8 and 16.  He claimed that he suffered rape and wanted to exact revenge upon the community.  They hung a noose from a construction crane, put it around his neck, raised him up, and hung him until he was dead.  May Allah have mercy on his soul.
  47. 2006 Thursday: Global law enforcement authorities discover a worldwide child pornography ring after finding information in online chat rooms that leads to the arrests of 13 Americans, 10 Canadians, several Australians and at least 2 Brits.  Lock ‘em up.
  48. 2007 Friday: Islamic jihadists go berserk in Anbar Province launching a chlorine attack (remember: NO weapons of mass destruction in Iraq) killing at least 2 Iraqi police officers and wounding or sickening hundreds more.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.   Elsewhere, communist China adopts the People’s Republic of China Property Law, a law that covers the creation, ownership, and transfer of property in mainland China. 
  49. 2008 Sunday: With the collapse of Bear Stearns over the housing crisis, the world economy finds itself on shaky footing.  This past Sunday, the Fed enabled JP Morgan to buy Bear Stearns in an effort to prevent the collapse of the nation’s fifth largest investment bank from collapse.  Sadly, it does not seem to have prevented the ongoing implosion.   JP Morgan bought the company, once valued at more than $20 billion for bargain basement prices of $270 million.  What a bargain.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms go berserk in Tibet, cracking down on protesters demanding freedom.  Word has it the Chi-Coms murdered at least 80 people in cold blood and scooped up loads of others for their concentration camps.  Basketball shoes anyone?  The Dalai Lama accused the Chin of waging a cultural genocide against his people.  No wonder the Chi-Coms want his hide.
  50. 2009 Monday: Outrage continues to grow over collapsing AIG’s decision to pay out hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to its top managers and CEO.  This leads to outrage in the street and a decision by the Obama White House to discover a way to halt this outrage.  It matters not that the executives were promised these bonuses whether the company turned a profit or not.   New York State Attorney Andrew Cuomo announces he is going to subpoena AIG so he can get some answers before his kangaroo court.  Elsewhere, following the bailouts of the big banks by the Obama administration, their thanks is to lessen lending, not increase it.  Wow.
  51. 2010 Tuesday: NO matter what liberal Westerners demand, Israel announces that it’s going to move forward with the construction of new settlements.  Meanwhile, as Palestinians continue protesting in Jerusalem, Israeli authorities crack down on them leaving at least ten or more injured.  Stop fighting with the Israelis, you dumb asses.  Meanwhile, a drone strike ordered by the droner-in-chief, President Barack Hussein Obama, kills 9 people and injures many more in Pakistan.  No one knows if they were terrorists or not.  No wonder the Muslim world hates the United States.
  52. 2011 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announces that she will NOT serve a second term should President Obama win reelection for a second term.   Elsewhere, the CIA continues conducting drone strikes across Afghanistan and Pakistan.  What the hell is going on?

  54. 2013 Saturday: In response to a possible nuclear attack on the U.S. mainland by North Korea, the government announces it will invest $1 billion to put into place ground-based missile interceptors.
  55. 2014 Sunday: In a referendum deemed illegal by both the European Union and the United States, voters in the Crimea vote for secession from the Ukraine and a coupling with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
  56. 2015 Monday: Andy Fraser, bassist of Free, dies on this date in Temecula, California.  The legendary bassist was 62 years-old.  As a musician, he played his instrument as though he was playing a lead instrument.  Listen to the live album by Free, listen to his incredible solo playing on “Mr. Big,” among others and see that he was among the greatest bassists ever, in the same class as Jack Casady of the Jefferson Airplane or Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead.  Absolutely stunning to say the least.
  57. 2016 Wednesday: Setting in motion one of the most contentious Supreme Court issues between Republicans and Democrats, President Barack Hussein Obama nominates Merrick Garland to fill the seat of deceased Republican Associate Justice Antonin Scalia.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that the voters will decide in November’s presidential election as to whom should have the honor of nominating the replacement for Scalia.  Of course, the Democrats go bat crap crazy.  Eventually with Donald Trump winning the presidency, the 45th president will nominate Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacant seat.
  58. 2017 Thursday: The anti-Trump ‘Resistance Movement’ strikes again what with not one but two federal courts blocking the president’s second travel ban.  Elsewhere, a judge in Maryland issues a temporary restraining order against President Donald J. Trump’s revised Muslim ban.
  59. 2018 Friday: At age 89, Li Ka-Shing- Asia’s second wealthiest person (and Hong Kong resident) announces his retirement from the world of business.  Elsewhere, as the United States continues reaching out to North Korea, South Korea and the U.S. jointly announce that they will scale down annual military drills so as to draw the North into direct talks.
  60. 2019 Saturday: In Mabini, Philippines, a dead beached whale is discovered to have 88 pounds of plastic refuse in his guts, including 40 pounds of plastic bags.  Yikes.  Meanwhile, the Yellow Vests Protests against French President Emanuel Macron enter their fourth month as protesters angry over rising energy prices due to Green Fascism continue to drive the people insane.  Fires erupt, stores and cars are burned, the police take to the streets and fire tear gas at the protesters.  It’s a mess.
  61. 2020 Monday: Thanks to the Wuhan Virus out of Wuhan, China, panic continues gripping the world.  The markets have been in freefall, with a Bear market that began last week continuing.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 23,185.62, down 2,997.10 points.  The S & P 500 is down 324.89, closing at 2,480.64.  The NASDAQ is down 970.28 and closed at 6,904.55.  Total confirmed cases of COVID-19 around the world are 167,457 with 6,471 confirmed dead and 76,851 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, medical researchers continue trying to increase testing kits as well as experimental vaccines to fight this foreign scourge.  In the U.S., there have been 4,017 positive tests for coronavirus what with 35,840 negative tests and another 1,691 pending tests.  The United States is behind in testing but folks, you can test negative one day and positive a day or two later.   
  62. 2021 Tuesday:  FOREIGN NEWS- Intelligence analysts now report that both the Russians and their Iranian lackeys interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election to undermine and defeat Donald Trump while pushing Methuselah Joe Biden into the White House, someone easier to control and who would put America LAST rather than FIRST as President Donald J. Trump did.  No one is screaming and wailing like a bunch of banshees over 2020 Election interference while all the while they still snivel that ‘Trump stole the election in 2016 with Russian help.’  Wah, wah, wah.  
  63. 2021 Tuesday A: In other FOREIGN NEWS- the ‘Joe Biden White House’ is confused as to WHY Kim Jong Un won’t respond to feelers put forward by the ‘46th president.’  Kim’s sister, Kim Yo-Jong is urging a hardline stance against the ‘Biden administration’ seeing as how a stumbling Joe Biden on the campaign trail called her brother- the Supreme Ruler- a thug and that he wouldn’t deal with the North Koreans if they did not denuclearize.  Now, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ is puzzled as to why Kim won’t respond to him other than to demand he halt the WAR GAMES with South Korea.  Perhaps it’s this: the Iranians called Joe Biden a second-class idiot today, not even a first-class dimwit.  That sucks and yet, Joe is still giving the Iranians several billion dollars.  Gee whiz.   Meanwhile, former Bolivian President Jeanine Anez has entered prison to do a four-month stretch for supposedly trying to engineer a coup against socialist thug Evo Morales.
  64. 2021 Tuesday B: Border Disaster News- The ‘Biden administration’ announces plans to house at least 3,000 illegal alien brats in a downtown Dallas, Texas, convention center.  Incapable of stopping the invasion along our southern border, Biden officials are busing the illegals all over the country and dumping them out in the streets saying to community leaders, ‘it’s on you.’  Many communities run these illegal aliens out of town on rails.  We don’t want them; we won’t care for them.  Meanwhile, moderate (almost a RINO) Florida Senator Rick Scott has authored a bill that will provide amnesty to so-called DREAMers in exchange for funds to complete the border wall.  White House?  Crickets…
  65. 2021 Tuesday C:  Border Disaster News Pt. II- Joe Biden’s immigration plan does NOTHING to curb the illegal alien invasion.  (Note- he has NO plan.  Goldie).  Next, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas defends his crap-assed performance of taking care of illegal alien minors along the border.  His plan calls for them to be sardined together in worse conditions than anything President Trump ordered.  They sleep on cement floors, they get showers once a week, the food is shit, the babes are crying at night for their mothers, and this POS scumbag says he’s doing a ‘fantastic job.’  Impeach this SOB.  Regarding Secretary Mayorkas, this loser is passing the buck by saying, “We are repairing the system the last guy disbanded.”  Sure.  Speaking of immigration, leading House Dems say there’s a bleak outlook when it comes to passing a coherent immigration bill.  (Note- this is the ONLY policy you need- build the wall and deport them all.  Period.  Goldie).   In other ‘border news,’ 10 Iranian nationals have been arrested along the southern border.
  66. 2021 Tuesday D:   Border Disaster News Pt. III- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., becomes the first top-level Democrat to declare the travesty of the southern border to be a “MAJOR CRISIS.”  Thank you, senator, now do something to stop the invasion.  Meanwhile, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing everything he can to evade having to do something about the border catastrophe.’   Meanwhile, former New York state Congressman Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing whatever he can to deflect away from the predicament he created on the southern border by not stopping the tidal wave.’  Impeach Biden Now. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday E:  Political News Pt. I- House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, lets the Democrats have both barrels and then a reloaded both barrels over them trying to politicize the U.S. military, the National Guard, and federal law enforcement.  They are recruiting trannys, gays, and unfit people to be the frontline in defending our nation, even offering FREE sex-change surgeries for enlisted men, women, and ‘things.’[vii]  We are going down.  (Note- looks like ‘Groping Joe’ Biden is doing everything he can to HELP the Chi-Coms).   Next, people are asking at Day #56 of the Biden administration, WHEN is ‘President Biden’ going to address the American people?  The country’s citizens are growing worried that they have elected a vegetable to the highest job in the world.   We concur. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Political News Pt. II- The ‘Joe Biden tax plan’ continues facing increased pushback from the GOP as it’s a social-re-engineering plan, one that will transfer wealth all over the place while killing jobs, putting more people into the street, and destroying society.  Speaking of the Democrats, they claim to want to bring in Republican input for their ‘infrastructure plan’ (Note- their Green New Deal plan- Goldie) but so far have not met with Republicans.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is still trying to unseat Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district, a woman whose race was certified and who has been serving in the House since taking the oath on January 3, 2021.  Speaker Pelosi is trying to OVERTURN her lawful election.  We must stop Mumbles.   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing EVERYTHING he can to circumvent the U.S. Congress.’
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: My Pillow’s Mike Lindell is launching several countersuits against the crooked Dominion Voting Systems company out of Canada, accusing them of ‘racketeering’ as they try to intimidate him into silence.  We hope you get those scumbags, Mike, they have loads of explaining to do.   Next, President Donald J. Trump calls the Washington Post, aka WAPO, ‘an example of media travesty’ after it lied about the conversation, he held with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger earlier in the year.   Regarding the Peach State, a judge in Georgia says he may order unsealing of the absentee ballots so investigators into election fraud in 2020 can perform a REAL audit.
  70. 2021 Tuesday H:  Democratic Party News, Pt. I: Democrats in the U.S. Senate on the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee are holding hearings on ‘housing in America.’  We know there is a shortage of housing right now because of the pandemic’s halt on new home construction.  What the Democrats seek are multi-family home dwellings so they can force more people into living with one another which is wholly un-American.  Yet that is what they do, they seek to bring Section 8 housing into a neighborhood near you.  Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers are pushing back against Democrats by seeking to include natural gas and nuclear energy as part of our energy creation sources with which to augment unreliable renewable energy sources.  Democrats want wind and solar period.   Finally, Democrats are pushing Senate Dems to get rid of the filibuster which is putting pressure directly atop moderate Democrats like Joe Manchin, D-W. Va.  (Note- the RNC is planning a counter-media blitz against the Democrats’ blitz on HOW GREAT the Chi-Vi Relief Bill is).
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: Political Correctness News- Columbia University is going to put on six different graduation ceremonies- a) Native American; b) Asian; c) Latino; d) LGBTQIA+; e) gringos; and f) first generation students and low-income students.  Wow.  Martin Luther King Jr. would be rolling over in his grave.  For God’s Sake, people!  Meanwhile, Project Veritas released video of Facebook execs discussing how to avoid governmental oversight, rules, regulations, and what they deem to be interference.  Sadly, for Facebook, 48 states currently have monopoly lawsuits going against FB.  
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: U.S. ‘Enemies’ News- On his first trip to Asia, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Democrat, takes it to the Chi-Coms for their regional coercion of their neighbors.  Good for you but wait- don’t YOU have ties to the Chi-Coms, Secretary Blinken?  We believe you do.  This is all smoke and mirrors.  Next, a recent Gallup poll says that MORE Americans now view the Chi-Coms as a major threat following the lab-engineered pandemic they created and then released.   Meanwhile, the bastion of ‘freedom’- Russia- says it’s thinking of banning Facebook from their soil.
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: Popular Culture News- this year’s Grammy Awards were among the worst ever what with a drop from 18.7 million viewers last year to a pitiful 7.9 million this year.  If you like watching hoochie mamas singing about that ‘Wet Hot Pu**y,” then good for you but people can see slut-bags seven days a week walking down the street.   Next, the “Amityville Horror” killer Ronald De Feo Jr. died in the joint at age 69.  Elsewhere, after Sharon Osbourne exercises the chutzpah to defend Piers Morgan on “The Talk,” the show goes into hiatus because the black chick, Sheryl Underwood’s feelings were hurt.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo News- there is speculation that ‘seven Cuomo judges- will rescue him from being removed from office.  The investigation into “Killer Cuomo,” however continues as his accusers are undergoing depositions.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden won’t demand that his fellow groper “Killer Cuomo” be ejected from making COVID-19 calls to encourage people to rush out and get the vaccine.   Sexual deviates always stick together.
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom News- Little Gavin is now out there crowing that ‘if he gets a chance, he will appoint a black woman- ANY black woman to fill Senator Dianne Feinstein’s seat.’  We didn’t know that Senator Feinstein was going anywhere anytime soon.  Still, this is what liberals do when confronting the law, they begin promising to donate money to Planned Parenthood, wage war on the NRA, and do everything else liberals love.  Too little too late.   Newsom has awoken to the fact that he is probably going to lose his seat so he releases a commercial in which he blames HIS problems on: 1) the Far-Right; 2) QAnon; 3) Proud Boys; 4) Oath Keepers; 5) Donald J. Trump; 6) Newt Gingrich; 7) Mike Huckabee; 8) conspiracy theorists; and 9) everyone else he can blame HIS disasters upon and then some, i.e., white supremacists, racists, bigots, haters, and insurrectionists.   Michael Reagan says living in California is like in the Germany of the 1930s.  Could not have said it better ourselves.  Thanks, Mike.
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: The National Rifle Association seeks to delay the deposing of its board members as the bankruptcy case makes its way through the courts.  Meanwhile, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform says that ‘Joe Biden wants to raise tax rates higher than what the Chi-Coms have, especially on corporations, and in so doing will kill wages, destroy jobs, and eliminate retirement savings.’  He also said that ‘increasing utility rates is akin to raising the taxes although it’s not an official raising of taxes.’  By raising corporate taxes, it diminishes the return on investments which will destroy retirement programs.  The government also seeks to legalize marijuana across the country so that it can reap the tax dollars.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: National Guard troops from Guam visited the office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R- GA 14th congressional district, because she mentioned the name of the U.S. territory in a speech and referred to it as a ‘foreign nation.’[viii]  She blasted their ‘visit’ as little more than a political stunt.   Meanwhile, scientists are proposing to put a doomsday vault on the moon.   Next, ex-Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin wants George Floyd’s 2019 arrest released to the jury in his trial.   Meanwhile, New Mexico is advancing a bill that will allow assisted suicide for the terminally ill within their state.
  78. 2021 Tuesday P: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 120,505,974 confirmed cases, +657,693, 2,665,597, confirmed deaths, +11,956, and 68,325,205 confirmed recoveries, +293,341.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,719,808 confirmed cases, up 43,163 from yesterday’s reporting, 541,030 confirmed deaths, UP 578, and 115,759,310 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.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 212,553 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    Note- Sweden becomes the latest nation to put a halt to further use of the AstraZeneca vaccine over pulmonary embolisms and blood clots.  Meanwhile, Moderna starts a study in which, they will inoculate children and study the effects.  Finally, that dimwit, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, “inconvenient truths” came into play with our response to the China Virus crisis.  (Note- the Federalist reports that Democrats want “COVID-19 passports but when it comes to asking for ID at election sites, nyet.”
  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: 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: 3,626,327 confirmed cases, 56,621 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for several days now).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 353,322 confirmed cases, 5,192 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wyoming, aka the Equality State: currently, they have 55,352 confirmed cases, 693 confirmed deaths, and 54,231 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 821,762 confirmed cases, 6,037 confirmed deaths, and 787,893 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Canada, the home of the Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Rush: 915,868 cases of the old Wuhan Meat Market Malady, 22,519 confirmed deaths and 861,832 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, what’s the point: communist nations ALWAYS lie- you know it and we know it.
  80. 2021 Tuesday R: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,825.95, DOWN 127.51 points (-0.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,471.51, UP 11.859 points (+0.09%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,962.71, DOWN 6.23 points (-0.61%).  The price of GOLD is $1,729.40 per troy oz., -1.50 (-0.09%) while the price of SILVER is $25.99 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.07%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,215.40 per troy oz, -3.70 (-0.30%) while the price of COPPER is $4.06 per pound, -0.01 (-0.34%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,498.70 per troy oz, -0.02 (-0.50%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.91 per barrel, +0.10 (+0.15%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.61.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Aruban florin, one greenback equals 1.78.  
  81. 2021 Tuesday S: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.856 per gallon, $3.558 in Hawaii, and $3.281 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,058,245,351,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: In some shocking news, a stockpile of commercial grade fireworks blew up in Ontario, California, killing two people.  The Ontario police chief said that officers were called on scene for another issue when the garage blew up killing the two and injuring others.  Next, Joe Biden’s handlers are establishing a commission with which to study packing the U.S. Supreme Court as well as other courts.  In other court news, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI, sent a new letter to the FBI demanding a FURTHER investigation into U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.   Senator Whitehouse- a partisan POS- says the FBI investigation back in 2018 was ‘flawed’ and that witness information went into the circular file.  What a scumbag.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Islamic jihadists attacked locals in Niger’s Tillaberi region killing at least 58 people and wounding countless others.   The people were returning home from a cattle market in Banibangou when the jihadists came racing up on motorcycles and began lighting the startled villagers up.  After they killed as many as they could and left the wounded to die, the reputed al-Qaida “B-team” then set local granaries ablaze in the hopes of causing famine throughout the region.  Time for the French Foreign Legion to arrive on scene and begin exterminating these Boko Haram-loving murderers, rapists, and thugs.
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: NEWS FLASH: In Atlanta, Georgia, 8 people are shot dead at a massage parlor, most of the dead being female staffers.  It appears that happy endings for the night were no more.  The suspect whose image and car were captured on security tape was apprehended more than 100 miles south of the city.  No one knows the motive yet; it could have been fraud, it could have been QAnon, it could have been someone gave the shooter the clap.  We will await further developments.
  85. 2021 Tuesday W: Mega-Millions Draw #1642 with a jackpot of $93 million on the line tonight: 10, 41, 46, 52, 69, and Mega 08.  Stay tuned for results on the winner(s).  Okay, out of 66,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $437 apiece.
  86. 2022 Wednesday:  Things are moving so fast that it’s difficult to keep up.  After a heavy news day yesterday, we hope the Unseen Hand manipulating Chi-Com Joe Biden takes it a little bit slower today…

[i] The Soviets would do what communists always do: march their prisoners in and give them lead to the back of the head.  Then, they haphazardly bury the corpses and leave it for others to find.  Russian scumbags.

[ii] Likewise, we expect to offer the music of Alice Cooper sometime between 2025-2027.  Please stay tuned.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band at some point within the next 5-7 years.  Stick around for the glorious day when we do.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Heart within the next 15 years or so.  Stick around for the glorious, mind-altering day.

[v] 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.   

[vi] Not sure when we will promote the music of Van Halen but when we do, we will also present the music of Sammy Hagar so please stay tuned.

[vii] Jessie Jane Duff, GySgt. U.S.M.C. Retired says the purpose of the military is to break things and kill people, not to serve as some sort of laboratory for left-wing social scientists to transform our society into a freak show.  The U.S. Army is second-guessing its gender-neutral policies after record numbers of young women can’t cut the mustard (but they can always like the jar).  Instead of recognizing the differences between genders and working within that framework, the Pentagon is reducing standards for men so women can score better on their physical tests.  It sounds like it’s getting to be time to move somewhere else because an army of gays and trannys is not going to defend our nation.  Note- this is ALL Barack Hussein Obama’s fault- he’s the one who f**ked up the military.

[viii] Look, about ten years ago, Democratic Congressman Hank Johnson, Georgia, asked military leaders if MORE assets were sent to Guam would the island capsize and sink into the sea.  This moron STILL sits in Congress.  Whatever MTG said is nothing compared to this Rhodes scholar.

71. 2020 Thursday B: One American News Network (OAN) reported late yesterday evening on the ties Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, aka “Cocaine Mitch,” he has to communist China. His wife, Elaine Chao, is the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping magnate and that the Chi-Coms gave “Cocaine Mitch” $1 million to help in his re-election campaign. He and his wife apparently are extremely wealthy thanks to cultivation and investment by the Chi-Coms.

  67. 2018 Monday: A new report arises noting the Russian propaganda efforts to sway media and election on social media are much more intense than previously thought, especially their attempts at swaying the views of African Americans.  Everyone knows the Russians are scum and continue doing this just as other nations do- including the U.S.  It is what it is.   Meanwhile, U.S. Prime Minister Theresa May is facing challenges to her leadership as Brexit continues moving at a snail’s pace.   Elsewhere, CBS News says terminated producer Les Moonves, caught up in #MeToo charges, won’t receive his $120 million payout as he leaves the network.  Sucks to be him…
  68. 2019 Tuesday: The run-up to the impeachment vote of President Donald J. Trump continues as Congressman Jaime Raskin, D-MD, sitting in for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, and ranking member, Congressman Doug Collins, R-SC, appear before the House Rules Committee to hammer out the terms under which the impeachment trial will occur in the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, blasts Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, over his refusal to indulge the Democrat’s desire to call more witnesses noting that the Constitution says nothing about the Senate doing the work of the House.  The Senate serves as the jury in impeachment proceedings and nothing more.  F**k off, Chuck.
  69. 2020 Thursday: The U.S. government confirms the recent hacking of various departments.  Most believe it’s either Russia or communist China, possibly Iran.  Meanwhile, the House GOP urge President Donald J. Trump to veto the $1.4 trillion spending bill soon to come before him for his signature.  Elsewhere, director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe says the report on voter and election fraud will not be ready tomorrow as he once promised.  We will await its debut. 
  70. 2020 Thursday A: U.S. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley meets with the Taliban to discuss the ongoing peace talks in Afghanistan.  Next, the Iranian government says they have ‘no doubts’ that Pro-China Joe Biden will not immediately rejoin the JCPOA.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin says the U.S. should extend the New Start Arms Control Treaty.  Putin also says he’s up in the air as to whether he will seek another term (yeah, right) in 2024. 
  71. 2020 Thursday B: One American News Network (OAN) reported late yesterday evening on the ties Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, aka “Cocaine Mitch,” he has to communist China.  His wife, Elaine Chao, is the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping magnate and that the Chi-Coms gave “Cocaine Mitch” $1 million to help in his re-election campaign.  He and his wife apparently are extremely wealthy thanks to cultivation and investment by the Chi-Coms.  Although we have heard these rumors before, we now believe them to be the truth thanks to his pushing aside of President Donald J. Trump from almost after the 2020 Presidential Election.  Shame on you, Senator McConnell, shame on you.
  72. 2020 Thursday C: A recent Emerson poll reports that Senator Kelly Loeffler holds a 3-point lead over far-left, pro-Nation of Islam bigot the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock in their Georgia run-off Senate race while her fellow Senator David Perdue is in a dead heat with pajama boy, Jon Ossoff.   Elsewhere, Google and parent company Alphabet are hit with their third anti-trust lawsuit over their abuse of market power.  Texas and nine other states are going after the corrupt entity, and we hope that they end up being broken up along with Facebook and Twitter.   Meanwhile, we hear that following Vice President Mike Pence holds the final confirmation count on January 6 in the U.S. Senate, he will then leave on an overseas trip. 
  73. 2020 Thursday D: Atlantic City is going to auction off the right to implode the former Trump Casino in that city.  Meanwhile, the Chinese Virus pandemic has caused 8 million Americans to fall into poverty over the last six months.  Elsewhere, due to redistricting beginning next year, political observers predict the GOP will recapture the House of Representatives in 2022.  That is, unless the Democrats use their fraudulent vote corruption and theft strategy, which many astute political observers such as we believe will cause the GOP NEVER to win another election ever.  Speaking of Democratic corruption, President Trump says thousands of dead people voted across Nevada in last month’s presidential election.  Might as well have added the illegal aliens, the felons, the incarcerated, the underage, the stupid, the ignorant, and the space aliens, too.
  74. 2020 Thursday E: Astronomers say they have detected radio transmissions from an exoplanet.  So far, astronomers have discovered more than 4,500 exoplanets orbiting other stars, but this is the first time they have discovered radio signals- or so they believe- coming from one of these planets.  Astronomers have reported the signals come from the Tau Boötes system, one that contains a binary star and an exoplanet.  They believe the emissions come from the planet itself.  The system if 51 light years from earth with a light year equaling approximately 6 trillion miles.  Quite a ways away, folks.
  75. 2020 Thursday F: President Donald J. Trump withholds $200 million in Medicaid money from California.   HHS Secretary Alex Azar will withhold the money over the state’s demand that insurers provide abortion coverage at taxpayers’ expense.   Meanwhile, the John Roberts’ U.S. Supreme Court rejects a Kentucky religious school’s desire to reopen despite the Chi-Vi lockdown.  Elsewhere, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announces a statewide ballot audit. Next, California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell keeps his lips zipped over his alleged lengthy ongoing affair with a Chi-Com MSS agent.   Finally, a Homeland Security Department watchdog blasts ICE for putting illegal aliens in solitary confinement and abusing them mentally.  Oh, boohoo, mojados, don’t come.  
  76. 2020 Thursday G: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 74,862,082 confirmed cases, +774,992, 1,660,032, confirmed deaths, +33,345, and 42,283,258 (readjustment lower from the number a week ago) confirmed recoveries, +389,485 (same number as reported a week ago).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,203,481 confirmed cases, UP 207,284 from yesterday’s reporting, 312,489 confirmed deaths, UP 2,784, and 7,777,776 confirmed recoveries, UP 59,633.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 367,975 confirmed cases, 3,050 confirmed deaths, and 342,812 confirmed recoveries.
  77. 2020 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,740,585 confirmed cases, 21,944 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,954 confirmed cases, 280 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 215,308 confirmed cases, 3,137 (dropped this number from last week’s tally) confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Illinois- currently, they have 880,975 confirmed cases, 15,987 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor J.

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

[iv] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of R.E.M. but look forward to doing so as they are awesome.

  53. 2018 Wednesday: As DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen continues receiving incoming flak for having told members of a massive illegal alien caravan trying to cross into the United States from Mexico that the ‘Trump administration would likely reject their claims of asylum.’  Such is being a member of the Trump team, constant ongoing attacks by crazed leftists.   Meanwhile, a federal judge in Mississippi strikes down the state’s new anti-abortion law.  Deep State interference once again.
  54. 2019 Thursday: After two more witnesses appeared before House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-CA, on the inquiry into impeaching Donald J. Trump, Schiff had to throw his hands up in resignation as once again, disaster befell the cretin.  The first witness, David Holmes (no relation to “Big John”), former counselor for the U.S. embassy in Kiev and the second witness, Dr. Fiona Hill, a Brit, former NSC director for Europe and Russia had nothing to add to the impeachment hopes of the Democrats.  In fact, within minutes, Chef Lilah Paulikovich suggested to @RepAdamSchiff on Twitter that he fall on his sword and take his senile House leader, Nancy Pelosi, down with him.  These hostile losers hate Trump so it’s ironic that their hatred will re-elect President Trump in a massive 2020 landslide.  Meanwhile, UNKNOWN Democratic presidential candidate, Mayor Wayne Messam[viii], of Miramar, Florida, dropped out of the race on this date.  He never appeared in a single Democratic Party debate, and no one knew who the flip he was.
  55. 2020 Saturday: We learn that the Chi-Coms now blame Italy for having created the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, which is not surprising seeing as how the communist government in Beijing does not want the world blaming THEM for creating a virus from horseshoe bats and pangolins and then letting it ‘escape’ their Wuhan laboratory and to then infect the world.  The fact that the Italians are ignorant enough to participate in the Chi-Coms’ Belt and Roads Initiative makes them the perfect fall guys for the communists to blame.  Remember- they tried to blame the U.S. military for having snuck into Wuhan, let it loose there, and then to infect the rest of the world.  What a bunch of diabolic scumbags.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, stocks have tumbled due to the possible return of stentorian COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions. 
  56. 2020 Saturday A: President Donald J. Trump is considering signing an executive order that will stop birthright citizenship for children born to illegal alien mothers on U.S. soil.  Christ, we need a constitutional amendment that lays out precisely what citizenship is because the Democratic Party and their RINO enablers want to give citizenship to the rest of the world.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in Qatar today meeting with his counterparts as the Trump administration continues bringing peace to the Middle East.  Elsewhere, President Trump will be participating in the virtual G20 Summit today.  Finally, the CIA is awarding its cloud contract to a consortium of left-wing companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Google, Amazon.com, and others.  What is up with this?
  57. 2020 Saturday B: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, let us present to you the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s hypocritical snowflake Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 57,974,667 confirmed cases, +547,309, 1,378,411, confirmed deaths, +8,644, and 37,073,704 confirmed recoveries, +342,274.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 12,142,989 confirmed cases, UP 156,640 from yesterday’s reporting, 259,283 confirmed deaths, UP 1,410, and 6,204,239 confirmed recoveries, UP 43,454.
  58. 2020 Saturday C: 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: 1,096,354 confirmed cases, 18,644 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 17,029 confirmed cases, 224 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 147,251 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Massachusetts- currently, they have 204,155 confirmed cases, 10,488 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- we guess it is what it is.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 328,397 confirmed cases, 2,757 confirmed deaths, and 317,171 confirmed recoveries.
  59. 2020 Saturday D: As more evidence continues coming to light over how the Democratic Party and their Chi-Coms worked to rob President Donald J. Trump of the 2020 Presidential Election continues coming to light, the more we understand WHY the Democrats are so determined to ramrod this through like a Big John Holmes porno movie because they know that if the courts become involved and everything they’ve done comes to light, the more devastating it’s going to be both for this criminal, Marxist party and the Chi-Com leadership.  Imagine the Chi-Coms trying to blame Italy for a disease they manufactured in a biowarfare laboratory in Wuhan, China.  In our view, we should nuke both the Chi-Coms and the Canadians for our northern neighbor’s participation in the plot to remove President Donald J. Trump- Moses Scharbug III.
  60. 2020 Saturday E: ISIS claims responsibility for a mortar attack that dropped 23 shells on a residential neighborhood in Kabul, Afghanistan killing at least 8 people and wounding another 31.  Some of the shells fell near the Iranian Embassy.   U.S. and Taiwan step up economic partnership by signing a five-year cooperation deal that will bring the two countries (we consider Taiwan a country) closer together and will increase trade between the two countries (although the Chi-Coms will not be happy; f**k them).  Finally, Twitter announces that on Inauguration Day, it will hand over accounts associated with the presidency and the White House to the incoming administration.  Accounts such as @POTUS, @FLOTUS, @WhiteHouse, and others will go to the Biden administration IF he truly becomes president.  Twitter also says they will work closely with the Biden administration.  Hmmm, about what?  
  61. 2020 Saturday F: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3510 with a jackpot of $8 million at stake: 08, 12, 16, 21, 41, AND Mega 20.  The highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $29,647.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #796 with a jackpot of $192 million up for grabs- 51, 54, 57, 60, 69, and Powerball 11.  The highest winners were 53 people who had four numbers for a prize of $387 apiece.
  62. 2021 Sunday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Sadly, the previous two albums by guitarist/vocalist Richard Thompson were not big sellers so record label management gave him the old heave-ho.  When he released his next album, “Amnesia,” on October 15, 1988, he sure showed them.  Practically every tune on this album was a glorious endeavor, beginning with “Turning of the Tide” through “Reckless Kind” to “Yankee Go Home” to “Can’t Win” to the closing notes of “Pharoah” and every tune in between.  Joining the extremely talented guitarist/vocalist are (1) Jim Keltner on drums (2) Mickey Curry on drums (3) Alex Acuna (percussion), (4) Michael Froom (keyboards) (5) Jerry Scheff (basses) (6) John Kirkpatrick (accordions and concertinas), and loads of other people.  This is a fine album; we encourage everyone to seek out and to add to their ever-growing collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Having once been a hardcore leftist, I know how the game is played which is WHY I tell you now that what the Democrats and their allies in the fake news media continue trying to convince us is the TRUTH simply is NOT- Trump won BIG

ENDNOTES:

[i] 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.

[ii] 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.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of Boston but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[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] U.S. Circuit Court Judge Clement F. Haynsworth served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.  He was born in Greenville, S.C., on 10-30-1912 and died on 11-22-1989 in the same city.  President Richard M. Nixon nominated him to fill the seat of Associate Justice Abe Fortas, but Democrats fought hard to protect the seat of the liberal Fortas forcing the president to nominate someone less conservative than Haynsworth. 

[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] Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the breakaway republics have been beset by corruption because the parent country, the USSR, was incredibly corrupt as almost all communist systems are.  However, for American politicians, the Ukraine has been a place to make a lot of money, just look at Joe and Hunter Biden who gorged at the well for years and which is why Democrats in 2019 are trying to impeach and remove President Donald J. Trump.  It is not about them ‘fighting corruption’ but about keeping their cash cow afloat.  Shame on them.

[viii] Other Democratic candidates who have dropped out at this point are in numerical order: (1) Eric Swalwell; (2) John Hickenlooper; (3) Jay Inslee; (4) Seth Moulton; (5) Kirsten Gillibrand; (6) Bill Di Blasio; (7) Tim Ryan; and (8) Robert Francis “Beto-Bozo” O’Rourke.

55. 2019 Monday: As the impeachment hearings continue regarding President Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Richard and Linda Thompson was “Hokey Pokey,’ an album that came out on April 13, 1975.  Interlaced with English folk rock is some hardcore rock and roll/blues playing combined with innovative and many times humorous lyrics about people we all kind of know over the course of our lives.  Joining Mr. Thompson (vocals, guitars, other stringed instruments, and keyboards) are wife, Linda (vocals), Pat Donaldson (bass), Tim Donald (drums and percussion), Simon Nichol (guitars, pianos, organs, and vocals), John Kirkpatrick (accordions), and several others to round out the sound.  This is a great album; we love it and know that all fans of the band and of its individual members are going to love it too.  Please, seek it out now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
