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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,177 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 160,472 deaths

  77. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.229 per gallon, $2.947 in Florida, $3.987 in Hawaii, and $3.633 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let’s look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.880.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Argentina: $3.833 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,429,862,051,238 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiv]
  78. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #89 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of America’s number one problem and to have yet shown up for a single day on the job.  Ah, well, Benny Johnson of Newsmax says that Customs and Border Patrol has arrested numerous terrorists on the terrorist watchlist as well as all sorts of criminals- especially sexual criminals- and yet more continue coming.  In other news we believe is related to the border, a Houston deputy’s home was invaded in a pre-dawn assault and his wife and 4-year-old stepdaughter shot and seriously wounded by unknown perps.  A week or so ago, news appeared that said the cartels were going to target the homes and families of Lone Star State law enforcement officers.   Thank you, Joe “F**king” Biden.
  79. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the mess, Rep. August Pfluger, R-TX 11th congressional district, says that ‘illegal aliens are overrunning the 29 inland counties he represents.’  (Note- we urge Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, to put former Sheriff Joe Arpaio in charge of all holding pens for the illegal aliens).  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, is seeking to join Florida and Idaho in sending law enforcement to help aid Arizona and Texas in repelling the illegal alien invasion.  Good.  Every RED STATE governor must send troops to defend the country.  This is akin to the emergency that surrounded the Alamo, only this time, the GOOD GUYS are NOT going to lose to the barbarians.
  80. 2021 Sunday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says the ‘world powers must wake up to the dangers of the Iran nuclear deal.’

  84. 2021 Sunday L: Economic News– Economist Stephen Moore says that the Federal Reserve is way behind the curve on rising inflation which some experts claim is at or near 12-percent.  This is a tax on EVERYONE including those least equipped to pay for it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Yet another woman comes out and accuses rapidly sinking New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo of behaving in an indecent sexual manner.  It’s gotten to the point that the so-called “Love Gov” has had to offer a half-assed apology of sorts, claiming he’s just a ‘joker,’ that he ‘likes to horse around’ and other such bull crap.  The “Lov Gov” has also hired a criminal defense attorney now that it appears he is in real trouble over his shenanigans with sending COVID-19-infected patients back into the Empire State’s nursing homes where they murdered thousands of elderly and vulnerable people.  Cuomo is in trouble for his executive order that set this horrendous crime in motion, one in which the ill made others sick and then when they were going to DIE, they bundled them into medical transports, took them BACK to the hospitals where they added to the numbers of Chi-Vi deaths in the hospitals and covered up what Cuomo did to the poor people in the nursing homes.  We hope to see this POS wearing an orange jumpsuit busting up rocks soon.
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: The state of Oklahoma is seeking to get the National Rifle Association to relocate to their state.  Meanwhile, the NRA says that the Biden administration wants to bypass the committee process in Congress so it can force harsh gun control measures onto the American people.
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: A recent poll says at least 52-percent of the Grand Old Party want President Donald J. Trump to be the standard-bearer in 2024.  Meanwhile, Wyoming state Senator Anthony Bouchard has officially announced he is going to primary highly unpopular GOP Congresswoman Liz Cheney in 2022.  Unless the Democrats rally to the side of this RINO, her head is going to be gracing the top of the congressman’s fireplace. 
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, calls for a House probe into the “Cancel Culture.” 
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: A recent poll says that Joe Biden has a 61-percent approval rate.  The poll obviously is bulls**t folks because very few have seen the ‘46th president’ stumbling around much less have heard anything he says.  In an era of Deep Fakes, most people except the disciples of all things ‘news’ has seen or heard this illusive guy.  He is akin to trolls living beneath the bridge, pixies and fairies roaming the woods, sprites cavorting about the trees, NO one has seen or heard from him so please, don’t try to scam us with bulls**t polls.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Some people are hopeful the U.S. Supreme Court will weigh in on election laws in Arizona that could affect voting nationwide.  Don’t expect much, folks, the Dems don’t need to stack the U.S. Supreme Court when they have John Roberts as chief justice.  What a failure, what a disgrace, what a letdown the man is. 
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Reports along the southern border say that the tidal wave of illegal alien teens and toddlers swarming across the border is straining facilities with which to house them.   We believe Joe Biden should continue building the wall, that anti-vehicle and anti-personnel trenches should be constructed, barbed wire, minefields, and other obstacles laid in plus the seeding of the Rio Grande with baby alligators scooped up from Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana.  What is occurring on the southern border is a crime and whether you love you some illegal aliens or you don’t, what is happening to these people is inhumane, horrendous, and evil.  Still, the federal government could pay American citizens $2,500 per month to take in one illegal alien brat. 
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is expanding access to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine to all first-responders, law enforcement, K-12 students, and to all who are vulnerable to the Chi-Com Virus.  In other interesting news, Senator Mitt Romney is recovering from a fall that left him black and blue he suffered while visiting family in Boston.  We remember a similar incident when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, turned up all beat up and he claimed exercise equipment got the best of him.  It later turned out that one of his brothers got the ‘best of him.’
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic lawmakers are forging ahead with a plan with which to make Puerto Rico a state.   We already know they’re trying to make the District of Columbia a state which is bull crap.  D.C. was created so that the nation’s capital would NOT be in any particular state.  Ah, well, we say if we’re going to make territories and possessions into states, might as well make the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Marianas, and even Midway Island and the Johnson Atoll into states, too.  We say, WTF?  Imagine ALL the new senators with which, the Democrats could pack the U.S. Senate.  Hell, pretty soon various counties will be breaking apart from states and becoming states of their own.  Again, why NOT?  
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: An SUV in Southern California close to the Mexican border crashed into a semi-tractor-trailer rig.  Inside the SUV were 27 people- ILLEGAL FLIPPING ALIENS, PEOPLE- 15 of whom died in the mishap.  Some say ‘they got what they deserved’ while others say if we had secure borders, illegal aliens stuffed into ‘clown cars’ would not be careening all over the highways, crashing into cars and trucks driven by Americans.  Joe Biden, DEFEND THE F**KING BORDERS!  We don’t want to see people killed on  the nation’s highways but until you act against coyotes and begin imprisoning- if not shooting them on the spot– these kinds of tragedies are going to continue.  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: In other Joe Biden news, the ‘Biden administration’ is now looking into how to give reparations to black folks because of slavery in the past.  The question is, will ALL blacks qualify for ‘reparations,’ i.e., the modern-day equivalent of ’40 acres and a mule’ updated or will it just be blacks who can prove descent from a slave?  Will all NON-BLACK people, i.e., whites, Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans going to foot the bill or are just white folks going to foot this bill?  In interracial marriages, are white spouses going to be able to scrawl their names on a check and hand it over to the black spouse (or give them the credit card) and will that be the end of it?  What about interracial people who boast numerous bloodlines, how is the federal government going to determine this?  It is insane.  Will the government also inform the recipients of the SLAVE REPARATIONS that they will have to pay taxes on the money they receive?   NOTE- here is what WE say: like the $15 per hour minimum wage, this will never happen because once it does, the issue is removed from the arsenal of leftwing issues, NEVER to be used again.  IF you look at history, answer this question, with honesty- how many problems do liberals ever truly solve?
  78. 2021 Tuesday L: New York state lawmakers have stripped Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the “Love Gov” of his pandemic dictatorial powers.  Whoa.  Dreadful things are coming your way there “Killer Cuomo.”
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 114,706,724 confirmed cases, +356,113, 2,544,852, confirmed deaths, +7,987, and 64,781,391 confirmed recoveries, +250,043.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,998,700 confirmed cases, up 62,539 from yesterday’s reporting, 521,441 confirmed deaths, UP 1,706, and 16,992,502 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 191,256 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: 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: 3,573,588 confirmed cases, 52,521 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii has not updated their stats in nearly a week.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 343,746 confirmed cases, 5,038 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Kansas: currently, they have 397,436 confirmed cases, 4,743 confirmed deaths, and 312,758 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 779,958 confirmed cases, 5,760 confirmed deaths, and 735,850 confirmed recoveries.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: In one of the greatest pieces of news we have had in a long time, Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas says the Lone Star State will be open for business in one week.  ALL businesses, no matter who or what they are, may reopen and even better, the mask mandate is NO more.  Of course, liberals are wetting their panties, but it is what it is, America is coming back.  As soon as we evict losers like Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Lov Gov, of New York, and Frankenstein-headed Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan (all she is missing are the bolts on her neck), the country can reopen wide, and we can move beyond the Chinese Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, American diplomats going to communist China on behalf of the Biden administration are being forced to undergo the fearsome Chi-Com COVID-19 anal swab.  Tell them to go f**k themselves.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, aka COVID-19, the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans is opposed to the Johnson & Johnson Wuhan Virus vaccine because  it uses cells derived from abortions in both its manufacture and its testing.  IF the Catholic Church is against the Johnson & Johnson vaccine then we are against it, too.  Speaking of the J & J vaccine, with only 3.7 million does offered, Merck is stepping in to convert two of its U.S. manufacturing facilities to begin mass-producing and packaging of the vaccine.  As we said, we can wait. 
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,391.52, DOWN 143.99 points (-0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,358.79, DOWN 230.04 points (-1.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,870.29, DOWN 31.53 points (-0.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.80 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,202.20 per troy oz, -12.20 (-1.0\0%) while the price of COPPER is $4.19 per pound, -0.03 (-0.78%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,368.60 per troy oz, +19.60 (+0.83%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.12%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.62.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.85. 
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: The House Democrats continue slamming one bill after another.  Today, they introduced a wide-ranging (and unbelievably expensive, we suspect) climate bill which means MORE slush fund cash for Democrats to stick their hands in.   In other news, FBI Director Christopher Wray won’t release the cause of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  Even the family does not know the cause of their husband’s and father’s death.  Many believe he suffered a stroke on January 6, 2021, when he was blasted in the face with bear repellant.  The left wants everyone to believe that Officer Sicknick had his head stoved in with a fire extinguisher, but no evidence of that occurrence exists.  Sadly, he was quickly cremated, and his autopsy records sealed.  Left-wing governments and Islamic extremists ALWAYS require martyrs.[vii]   In other interesting news, far-left hatemonger Neera Tanden is OUT as the next White House Office of Management and Budget boss.  Her past hateful speech in social media came back to bite her on her skinny ass.  Ouch!   Finally, Democrats want to end qualified immunity for police officers.
  85. 2021 Tuesday S: Senator Martin Heinrich, D-NM, and Congressman Darren Soto, D-FL, have authored a bill to fast-track Puerto Rican statehood.  As we have said, just give statehood to Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Marianas, Johnston Atoll, Midway Island, and other specks in the Pacific Ocean we claim.  Imagine all the senators the Democrats could have.   Meanwhile, Senator Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says, he has the votes to pass the Biden Porkulus $1.9 trillion COVID-19 Relief Bill but hey- still NO $2,000 checks per U.S. citizen. 
  86. 2021 Tuesday T: The National Security Commission says that if the United States does not immediately pick up the pace, the Chi-Coms are going to win the race for artificial intelligence and can then use it to subjugate the rest of the world.  We had better get our act in order.  Elsewhere, the Nigerian military frees 279 kidnapped schoolgirls, seized by Boko Haram from Jangebe Town.  There are questions as to whether the Nigerians paid a ransom for them or not.  Meanwhile, Boko Haram attacked a favorite target of theirs, the town of Dikwa where they have a military outpost and humanitarian aid.  Apparently, the jihadists overran the town.  No word on casualties.  
  87. 2021 Tuesday U: In other Chris Wray news, the FBI director said that ‘several of the more than 300 people arrested for the Capitol Hill Riot of January 06, 2021, have ties to right-wing militias.’  He also said that since he became director in 2017, white extremism threats have more than tripled.  He also said there is NO evidence of fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.  In Texas, a judge was arrested along with some other scumbags for committing election fraud in that state. 
  88. 2021 Tuesday V: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1638 with a jackpot of $43 million on the line: 04, 08, 13, 34, 64, and Mega 18.  Out of 52,291 winning tickets, the highest were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $4,732 apiece.
  89. 2022 Wednesday: Friends, stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The tertiary effort by the Band- “Stage Fright” came out on August 17, 1970, and was a wonderful addition to the band’s growing discography.  Once again, the band featured the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).   The album contained two big hits- the title track and “The Shape I’m In.”  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as there’s nothing better than this glorious group.  Ask anyone who’s seen them in their heyday, and you will understand just how legendary and amazing they were.  You will love them just as we do.  Enjoy.

Tuesday, March 02, 2021, Today in History:

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

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…


Wednesday, March 02, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We definitely hope to present the music of ALL the classic Motown bands- including the famed Four Tops- sometime within the next decade.  Please, stay tuned for further developments.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Todd Rundgren but one day, we sure as heck will so please stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Paris at the same time we did Fleetwood Mac.  Sadly, we will promote Paris when we do Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, and Blodwyn Pig.  Paris created two fine albums in the 1970s.  Besides Sales, the band featured guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch and bassist/keyboardist Glenn Cornick.

[v] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028. 

[vi] Director Wray is one of the most adept practitioners of the fine art of NEVER answering questions.  It should shock everyone concerned how this man seemingly does not know very much about any topic at hand other than that white people are generally the culprits.  Much like Jen Psaki, he either is too ill-informed or unfit for the job held. 

[vii] The Soviets had their Pavlik Morozov, a boy who ratted out his parents as not being down with the struggle.  In every square in every town and city, statues of Pavlik Morozov were erected. 

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

24. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2022

2019 Thursday: The Trump administration recognizes Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the legitimate president of that troubled South American country. This of course drives the Venezuelans amok as they fight to quell ongoing civil disturbances over their attempted-fixed presidential elections.

  61. 2021 Sunday: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,006,885 confirmed cases, +718,738, 2,125,373, confirmed deaths, +15,615, and 54,608,134 confirmed recoveries, +352,720.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,227,940 confirmed cases, up 118,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 421,330 confirmed deaths, UP 2,272, and 10,987,457 confirmed recoveries, UP 13,290.  IF that leaning tower of drool, ‘President’ Joe Biden is going to save the country, he needs to save it NOW, ASAP, by getting the Trump vaccine to the people and ordering an immediate reopening of ALL businesses.
  62. 2021 Sunday A: 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: 3,163,830 confirmed cases, 36,816 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (Hawaii has not updated their case numbers in more than a week), 336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 304,107 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Wyoming: currently, they have 50,898 confirmed cases, 571 confirmed deaths, and 48,571 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,961 confirmed cases, 4,341 confirmed deaths, and 512,702 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Texas rolls out 100,000 Chi-Vi vaccine doses in a single day making BLUE states look like the losers they are.  Speaking of Blue States, Governor Gavin Newsom of California is being ripped apart for buying PPE from the Chi-Coms directly instead of American manufacturers.  Once again, is another direct tie between Democrats and their Chi-Com masters in Beijing.
  63. 2021 Sunday B: We learn today that Instagram is FORCING ALL USERS to ‘sign up’ for the White House account to make it look like ‘President’ Joe Biden- the usurper in chief- has a massive following when in fact, he has NO one.  Hence why many chef-authors and support staff at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have shuttered their Instagram accounts among other pro-Chi-Com social media sites.  F**k them.  Speaking of scurrilous social media scumbags, Facebook closes Young Patriots accounts.  We already dumped Facebook and it’s amazing how much they cried when they did.  We guess they enjoy exercising the power and determining whether one is ‘permitted’ on their site or is not.  F**k them, too.
  64. 2021 Sunday C: Today we have both NFL Championship games- first, the NFC Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 30 (13-5) @ Green Bay Packers, 32 (14-3) and then the AFC Championship- Buffalo Bills, 17 (15-3) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 22 (15-2).  Out of 25 chef-authors here at the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day, aka AICPENDBLOG.COM, 17 say it’s going to be a ‘State Farm Super Bowl’ between Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers and Kansas City and Patrick Mahomes while the others don’t.  We shall see.    Results for the first game: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31, Green Bay Packers, 26. NO STATE FARM SUPER BOWL this time around.  Eight of our colleagues are at 50-percent in their picks.  We shall see, again.   Here are the results for the second matchup and we must say, it was a brutal game.  Some of the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line behaved like Capitol Hill police officers did on January 06, stepping aside and almost waving the Chiefs in to sack or to commit some questionable hits on Josh Allen, QB of the Bills.    Final score: Chiefs, 38, Bills 24.  Next week, the Pro-Bowl then on February 07, 2021- Kansas City Chiefs @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Super Bowl LV.
  65. 2021 Sunday D: The Michigan GOP censures Rep. Fred Upton, one of theirs who voted for impeachment in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Payback is coming to all these losers.  Likewise, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey says he’s dropping a planned U.S. Senate run in 2022 because the Arizona GOP has censured him for handing the 2020 Presidential Election over to the Democrats and their standard-bearer, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden. Next, Arizona GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward wins re-election as the chair of the GOP in that state for another two years.  Speaking of the U.S. Senate and of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton says, ‘the Chi-Coms are blackmailing the ‘46th president’ with sanctions.   Elsewhere, the FBI rescues 33 kidnapped children from human traffickers and predators in the L.A. area.  God bless you!
  66. 2021 Sunday E: Chef Lilah in Hawaii says the Hawaii GOP is receiving loads of criticism over the party saying that “Q supporters” in Washington, D.C., are patriots, believing in what they believe.  She says, ‘that in every so-called conspiracy theory, an element of truth exists as otherwise it would not gain strength.’  She also says, ‘that Democrats are desperate to deflect blame from their leadership in the House telling Capitol Hill police officers to step aside and allow the Antifa-interlaced protesters easy entry into the Capitol Building on January 6.’  Look, Nancy Pelosi is out there accusing President Donald J. Trump of homicide for the people who lost their lives in the left-wing mob riots when she is the one who should shut up and lawyer up.  When the truth hits, no one will acquit Speaker Pelosi.  Finally, Chef Lilah says, ‘as for QAnon, why wouldn’t people believe this when they live in a country where millions of their fellow citizens- particularly minorities- have been aborted, a country in which fetal body parts are harvested and sold, a country in which, perversion, sexual deviancy, engineered racism, and the elimination of history, both good and bad, is at risk of being destroyed?’  No, she concludes by saying, ‘QAnon is not difficult to believe; no, it’s difficult to disbelieve when one closely examines what the left is doing to our country and why, the damage being caused, none of which is moral or Christian.’  God bless you, Chef Lilly!
  67. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On March 15, 2008, Sandy Denny’s label released a much more concise package from the “Live at the BBC” Box Set that came out last year, called “The Best of the BBC Recordings.”  This one contained 16 tracks so fans who had much of her earlier BBC recordings could latch onto these for a lesser price than the big box or the shorter effort released shortly thereafter the expensive box.  We are not saying that the box set is not worth it because it most assuredly is, but this is also a good addition because you get some tunes you had no clue ever existed.  We hope you will visit Amazon.com, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, or any other place you shop for the absolute best in music and consider making it a part of your listening day- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  32. 1946 Thursday: The Big Four- the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union agree to begin the gradual withdrawal of Allied occupation forces from Italy.  The Soviets also agree to withdraw their troops from Bulgaria which although on the side of the Axis during World War II did not participate in Operation Barbarossa and also have traditionally been a Russian ally.  Still, they will be a part of the communist bloc.  It is what it is…

  55. 2009 Saturday: As the Arab Spring continues growing across the Muslim world, riot police in Tehran are finding their hands full with mobs of protesters demanding changes in their dictatorial regime.  This is ONE country that new President Barack Hussein Obama won’t provide help.  Elsewhere, jihadists near Kirkuk, Iraq, get lucky with a suicide bombing that propels 67 people up to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving at least another 200 in varying stages of suffering.  That’s the ‘religion of peace’ for you…
  56. 2010 Sunday: The Chicago Journal reports it’s been a busy weekend in President Barack Hussein Obama’s adopted hometown of the Windy City what with 40 people shot and seven of them dead.  Halfway across the world, similar issues are occurring in central Baghdad what with two car bombings ejecting at least 26 passersby up to meet with Allah sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving another 53 in varying stages of distress.
  57. 2011 Monday: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers grants private companies the right to create new website domains and suffixes.  Elsewhere, the Anglican Church in England considers permitting openly gay clergy members to become bishops.  Well.  Elsewhere, sectarian clashes break out in East Belfast, Northern Ireland, leading to numerous people being trucked off to the hospital and others to the hoosegow.

  60. 2014 Friday: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiates a 7-day cease-fire, allowing troops to defend themselves but not to attack; during the cease-fire, separatists can turn in weapons and receive amnesty; so far, rebels have rejected the offer.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration rushes 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help that government’s forces battle the ISIS thugs in the oil-refining city of Baiji.   Light these scum-sucking bastards UP.
  61. 2015 Saturday: After white racist Dylann Storm Roof murders nine African Americans at the church in South Carolina earlier in the week, mass protests break out demanding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Capitol building.   Meanwhile, in southern Pakistan, a heat wave peaks killing at least 2,000 people from heat stroke and dehydration.   Elsewhere, in Japan, one-thousand female robots named “Pepper” sell out in under one minute at $1,600 per unit; so says creator SoftBank Robotics Corp.
  62. 2016 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court- noting that it has already reviewed other such bans on ‘assault weapons’ (ALL weapons are ‘assault weapons’ whether they be a gun or a screwdriver or even fists)- refuses to hear other states’ bans such as Connecticut and New York.  What we need is a universal permit to carry arms, both out in the open and concealed.  Cleansing the nation of ‘gun-free zones’ would also enhance the safety of every American.  Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that the number is higher than ever what with endless wars, climate disasters, and economic impoverishment: 65.3 million people (which the Democrats want to bring to the U.S.)
  63. 2017 Tuesday: Following his arrest for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods checks into a rehab clinic to deal with his pain medication dependency and his ongoing sleep disorders.   Elsewhere, as outrage continues to grow over the death of 22-year-old American tourist Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean jailers, Young Pioneers Tours, the firm taking foreigners into the hellhole known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea says it ‘won’t be taking any other Americans into that godforsaken country as the risk is simply too high.’  (Note- if you remember, young Mr. Warmbier visited the nation, removed a poster from a hotel room wall for a souvenir and then underwent arrest, a bulls**t trial, imprisonment, and just before he died, Kim Jong Un sent his catatonic body home to his parents).
  64. 2018 Wednesday: Bowing to pressure from his political enemies and armies of wailing illegal aliens, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order ending separation of families at the border, a policy that began under the previous administration but which no one conveniently remembers.   Meanwhile (and this is a good one!), the Chi-Coms express their regrets that the United States is withdrawing from the bulls**t U.N. Human Rights Council.  With dictators, thugs, criminals, and communists making up its membership, the organization is little more than a joke.
  65. 2019 Thursday: Leader of communist China, Xi Jinping, travels to North Korea to visit with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, the first Chinese leader to travel to the S-hole country in 14 years.  In other news, the Iranians commit an overt act of war when their military shoots down a U.S. surveillance drone which they claim trespassed into their airspace.  Almost immediately, the military-industrial-political complex in the United States as well as Democrats and pro-war RINOs begin banging the drum for President Donald J. Trump to launch yet another unnecessary Middle Eastern war.  Wow.
  66. 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump kicked off his official 2020 re-election bid with a massive rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  What a barn burner, he seems unstoppable.  Moving on, here are today’s stats for the Xi Jinping special Wuhan bat flu virus, first the globe: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 762 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 640 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for the CHOP state, Washington: 28,163 confirmed cases, 1,265 confirmed deaths, but sadly, like California, moron Gov. Jay Inslee will NOT REPORT the number of confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army would immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor.  The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent.  Good for you, President al-Sissi!
  68. 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant.  Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side.  He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army.  It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination.  Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum.  This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November.  VOTE TRUMP!
  69. 2021 Sunday: Folks, today is Sunday, Father’s Day Sunday, let’s hope it’s a slow news day as all the baby mamas will bring all their bastard brats to meet their daddies doing time in America’s hoosegows, today.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The collaboration between Phil Mogg and Pete Way continued with another UFO-sounding studio album entitled, “Chocolate Box” (November 07, 1999).  Mogg/Way was meant to be ‘UFO’ but without all the original members (or nearly all original members), axman Michael Schenker nixed the idea thus we have ‘Mogg/Way.’  The vocalist and bassist find themselves fixed at the hip with smoking red-hot guitarist Jeff Kollman, Simon Wright (drums), Matt Guillory and Paul Raymond (keyboards), and some guest backup vocalists to flesh out the sound.  IF YOU LOVE UFO, you will love Mogg/Way which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out at whatever fine site you haunt for the best in rock-and-roll, heavy metal, and space rock music.  You can thank us later by spreading the word.

[i] We definitely hope to present the music of ALL the classic Motown bands- including the famed Four Tops- sometime within the next decade.  Please, stay tuned for further developments.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Todd Rundgren but one day, we sure as heck will so please stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Paris at the same time we did Fleetwood Mac.  Sadly, we will promote Paris when we do Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, and Blodwyn Pig.  Paris created two fine albums in the 1970s.  Besides Sales, the band featured guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch and bassist/keyboardist Glenn Cornick.

[v] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries. In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

  56. 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army will immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor.

  57. 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant. Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side. He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army. It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination. Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum. This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November. VOTE TRUMP!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#PF001.3j Madcap Laughs #62 05-30-2020 (400)

 

We saved Syd Barrett’s solo work until we arrived close to the end of the Pink Floyd presentation because his two notable solo albums came out after he departed the group in 1968. Some say he became erratic due to excessive psychedelic usage combined with being a possible schizophrenic which some claim to be true and others deny. Ah, well, his first solo album, “The Madcap Laughs,” came out on January 03, 1970 and is a stunning look into the mind of an enlightened artist. Barrett performs guitars and vocals, David Gilmour provides bass and backing vocals, Jerry Shirley, Robert Wyatt, and Willie Wilson drums and percussion, Hugh Hopper (bass), and Mike Ratledge (keyboards). Great album, one every fan of both Pink Floyd and the Psychedelic Sixties should own so seek it out now. You will enjoy it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#PM01.1d Guitarissimo 75-83 #4 08-19-16 (400)

 

Phil Manzanera released his fourth solo album, “Guitarissimo 75-86” in 1986. Always among the most eclectic and innovative guitarists in the world, Manzanera always attempted to play the guitar in ways in which, it did NOT sound as though it was a guitar. We love the second part of the Roxy Music triumvirate’s amazing guitar chops and this album rocks the socks off the uninitiated and sends the ‘initiated’ to the depths of the Solar System.  We hope you will check it out and enjoy it for years to come. You will be glad you did.

Foster, Todd Rundgren, Paris, Hunt Sales, Bob Welch, Glenn Cornick,

[i] We definitely hope to present the music of ALL the classic Motown bands- including the famed Four Tops- sometime within the next decade. Please, stay tuned for further developments.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014. At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed. We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again. Thank you for your patience.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Todd Rundgren but one day, we sure as heck will so please stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Paris at the same time we did Fleetwood Mac. Sadly, we will promote Paris when we do Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, and Blodwyn Pig. Paris created two fine albums in the 1970s. Besides Sales, the band featured guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch and bassist/keyboardist Glenn Cornick.

[v] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.
