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.’
  81. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the Democrats’ ‘election reform bill’ is the ‘largest power grab in the history of the United States.’  Next, the Des Moines Register reports the results of a new poll: 64-percent of Iowans would like to see Senator Chuck Grassley retire instead of running for another term.  In other political news, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is slapping back at Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and some Fake News media outlets for discounting COVID-19 treatments such as hydroxychloroquine.  Most of the Americans who ‘succumbed’ to the disease most likely wouldn’t have provided they’d been given Plaquenil® at the first signs of the Wuhan lab-concocted bat virus.
  82. 2021 Sunday J: Political News II– The person challenging Rep.

  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.

165. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JUNE 14, 2022

2021 Monday L: Political News I- The GOP is blasting senile old Joe Biden’s DISMAL performance at the G7 where he cannot maintain any sort of coherent thought, shows up 2-3 hours late to meetings and press gaggles, and has other world leaders like Turkish thug, aka “The Sultan” Recep Tayyip Erdoğan arriving late to meet with the American usurper. This is becoming increasingly embarrassing and the promised propaganda that ‘the American people would have to run to keep up with Joe’ has yet to appear. Look, the Dems stole the 2020 presidential election as well as several U.S. Senate races. Not only does the American people know the truth, so, too, does the rest of the world.

  63. 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 over $4.226 per gallon, $2.968 in Florida, $3.962 in Hawaii, and $3.616 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $3.057.  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- Tanzania: $3.671 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,406,098,264,099 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 Hong Kong, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Cayman Islands with $223 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).[xx]
  64. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day No. 83 in which, the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has held the gig and as of today has yet to visit the southern border a single time.   It would appear the Biden regime should terminate her employment not only in this extremely critical job but as the ‘supposed’ No. 2 behind an increasingly feeble “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden.  We mean, how long can ‘Gropin’ Joe’ go?  Next, One America News network reports the latest statistics for the ongoing border holocaust.  First, total cost today for caring for the millions of illegals eating away at the foundation of our country is: $582,876,864.  Second, total cost for caring for the Untermensch this year: $180,308,951,040.  Wow.  Imagine how that money could help our homeless, our impoverished, and the American people felled by the Chi-Com Virus?  It would be tremendous.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegal alien invaders who have crossed the border this year: 1,848,022.  Fourth and final, here is the total ESTIMATED number for the total number of illegal aliens in the country as we speak: 35,828,024.  Note- we have said on countless occasions since the blog’s inception back in the spring of 2009 that we believe the numbers of Untermensch in the country actually is closer to 50 million on the low end and 80-100 million on the high end.  We believe our numbers will one day be validated by the statistics.
  65. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Lawmakers in the United Kingdom are urging “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden’s earpiece to give up the notion of prosecuting famed journalist and media freedom fighter Julian Assange.  (Note- we bet that if someone were to ask the ‘drooler-in-chief’ about Mr. Assange, he would have no clue as to the answer.   Next, the Chi-Coms have put the squeeze on the citizens of Hong Kong.  Any movie deemed ‘un-patriotic’ to the Xi Jinping regime will have to be censored or banned.   Next, Naftali Bennett took the oath of office for his short-lived term as prime minister of Israel today.  We predict that Benjamin Netanyahu will be back by summer’s end.  Elsewhere, Swiss voters soundly reject new measures with which to cut carbon emissions- so beloved by their government- because the Alpine nation bears responsibility for just 0.01-percent of ALL climate emissions.  The people are NOT going to permit their lawmakers to go full-blown climate change cuckoo.  God bless them.
  66. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– As ‘fearless leader’ “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden ambles about Europe on his first overseas trip to the G7 and to NATO, prior to meeting with his string-puller Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, it’s understandable that the drooling octogenarian president won’t take a strong stance on Ukraine becoming a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.  (Note- trying to add Ukraine to the famed military alliance could be the final straw breaking Russia’s back that could lead to a new Axis of Russia, communist China, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, and other s—hole countries going to war against the world.  Do we genuinely believe that an army of 1 million Russians and 10 million Red Chinese on Russia’s western border could not overrun the rest of Europe within 14 days, the same amount of time it took Nazi Germany to overrun Poland in 1939?).  In other G7/NATO news, NATO designates the Chi-Coms ‘a systemic threat’ to both the EU and NATO but to the rest of the world.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they appear to have their own Chernobyl going on at the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant as the French operator at the site is warning that a massive radiological leak is to be expected anytime soon.  WTF is up with the Chi-Coms and the French?
  67. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says that ‘the Chi-Coms are unwilling to investigate the origins of THEIR pandemic.  Next, Novavax plans to apply for emergency use authorization of its Chi-Vi vaccine in the U.S.  (Note- there’s another one we won’t be taking anytime soon).   Next, the so-called Delta COVID-19 variant is said to increase the risk of hospitalization by 200-percent which, we believe is yet another ploy to force free American citizens into getting Chi-Vi vaccines.  Meanwhile, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson of Tucker Carlson Tonight shared a story from Sky News Australia news reporter Sharri Markson recently covered: yes, indeed, there were indeed a whole lotta bats in the Wuhan Institute of Virology where Chi-Com ‘medical researchers’ conducted experiments on bat viruses with humanized mice.  Wow.  And bit by bit the truth continues coming out…
  68. 2021 Monday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona GOP is blasting the anti-audit stance currently exhibited by U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland.   Next, a new report says that a ‘hacking tool’ helped flip votes from President Donald J. Trump to the basement-dwelling, “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden in both Pennsylvania and Michigan.
  69. 2021 Monday K: Joe Biden News– One America News showed video of ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden at the G7 Summit fiddling with yet another cheat sheet in which, he had his talking points such as Trump-bashing predominantly highlighted so he could keep his increasingly feeble ass near the target.  This is not just embarrassing; it’s flipping dangerous and everyone in the world knows this man is incapable of leading his fellow rest home folks in a game of bingo much less the United States.  His ‘No. 2- “Kooky Kamala” is not much better.  Our country is in grave danger.
  70. 2021 Monday L: Political News I– The GOP is blasting senile old Joe Biden’s DISMAL performance at the G7 where he cannot maintain any sort of coherent thought, shows up 2-3 hours late to meetings and press gaggles, and has other world leaders like Turkish thug, aka “The Sultan” Recep Tayyip Erdoğan arriving late to meet with the American usurper.  This is becoming increasingly embarrassing and the promised propaganda that ‘the American people would have to run to keep up with Joe’ has yet to appear.  Look, the Dems stole the 2020 presidential election as well as several U.S. Senate races.  Not only does the American people know the truth, so, too, does the rest of the world.
  71. 2021 Monday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– The U.S. Supreme Court says, ‘NO early release for low-level crack offenders who were convicted more than a decade ago.’  Hmmm, say, aren’t these people doing time in federal prisons for the crack rock there because of Joe Biden’s crime bill that sent generations of young black men to prison for crack while white users of power cocaine got short sentences.  By a 9-0 ruling, the Supreme Court says that the crack heads doing hard time cannot take advantage of President Donald J. Trump’s 2018 First Step Act that sought to reduce lengthy sentences for low-level drug offenders.
  72. 2021 Monday N: Miscellaneous News I– Upon being threatened with the withholding of taxes and other fees by business owners in Baltimore, Maryland, the city says they will come to their aid and do something about the rampant homelessness and increasing violent crime rates.  About flipping time, folks.   Next, speaking at the MAGA FRANK rally in New Richmond, Wisconsin, over the weekend, former Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., D-WI, says ‘enough is enough with George Floyd’ (as the Dems continue pushing their ‘police reform bill) and says that IF Mr. Floyd had complied with the cops, he would still be alive today rather than turning into mulch today.  We concur.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new Zogby poll says that a majority of Americans believe the Fake News Media is covering up for “Drooling Joe” Biden.  Hell, we believe it, too.
  74. 2021 Monday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Father Michael and son Peter Taylor pled guilty in a Tokyo court to having helped former Nissan Motor Chairman Carlos Ghosn flee to his native Lebanon back in December 2019.  Lebanon has no extradition treaty with Japan.  The father and son duo were reportedly paid $1.5 million to help Ghosn escape Japan as police closed in on him over corruption charges.  Sucks to be you, two.  However, one must question as to WHY the Biden regime would extradite U.S. citizens to stand trial in a foreign country?  Hell, the Biden regime could soon be extraditing patriotic chef-bloggers such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM’s stable of open-minded thinkers to stand trial in Beijing for having insulted ‘Great Leader’ Xi Jinping by calling HIS pandemic the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  In other crime and punishment news, NSA leaker Reality Winner (yep, that’s the dumb ass’ name) is getting early release after going to prison for leaking National Security Administration secrets regarding Russian hacking and the supposed involvement of  President Donald J. Trump.
  75. 2021 Monday Q: Environmental News I– Ronald Kessler says the ‘myth of human beings causing global warming has been shattered.’
  76. 2021 Monday R: Health And Medical Alerts– U.S. hospital workers are pushing back against dictates they must take the Chi-Com Wuhan Flu Virus vaccines.  A group of healthcare workers in Texas recently lost a court case but when the majority of employees at the NIAID and NIH refuse to take the vaccines just as the United States Marine Corps has, why should they have to take this potentially toxic shit?  Heading to the United States Supreme Court.  What happened to ‘my body, my choice?’
  77. 2021 Monday S: Moron News–  Sandy “The Fly” Cortez- known by some as AOC- continues her demands for U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer to step down because he ‘ain’t woke enough.’  Skank, we are calling for YOU and your demented, Marx-spouting sisters to step down.  You’re still there.  Shut the f**k up.   Until House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, CPUSA-CA 12th congressional district, came in to the rescue to try to smooth things over between members of her party and the crackpot (Suicide) Squad of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, CPUSA-MI 13th congressional district, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, CPUSA-MA 7th congressional district, and Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st congressional district, Democratic Party leaders were tearing up both Omar and “The Fly.”  Finally, blowback continues to splatter across the face of CNN’s Brianna Keilar for her trying to whitebitchsplain to Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, as to WHY the Black Congressional Caucus won’t have him (hint- he’s a Republican).  What is it with these white skanks trying to tell black men what is wrong with them or how they should think?  Enough!
  78. 2021 Monday T: U.S. House of Representatives News–  Congressmen Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, and Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, have launched the Campus Free Speech Caucus.  Next, Congressmen Andrew Clyde, R-GA 9th congressional district, and Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, are suing the Pelosi House regime over its forcing of legislators to pass through metal detectors or to face a BIG FINE.  Good.  We hope you win.  In other House of Representatives news, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that ‘former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has every right to step up and speak out about Joe Biden and Iran.’
  79. 2021 Monday U: President Donald J. Trump News– Donald J. Trump Jr. said of his father that he ‘does not believe Congress is an option.’  Remember- there were some who claimed that President Trump might run for Congress so he could become speaker of the House and fix the mess there.  Donald Trump Jr. further said that the difference in press coverage between his father and ‘Gropin’ Joe” Biden is ‘insane.’  However, the gaffes continually being made by the ‘drooler-in-chief’ are increasingly being seen in some parts of the media unafraid of reporting the TRUTH.  President Trump said of Pennsylvania state Senator Jake Corman, GOP, originally questioned the ‘election of Joe Biden’ but now, is shying away from backing a 2020 Election audit in the Keystone State.  (Note- you know the old saw- the Dems must have found either a dead girl or a live boy in the bed of Senator Corman with which to blackmail him into behaving like a Democrat).
  80. 2021 Monday V: Economic News– The Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio, began paying its workers $20 per hour to come back to work.  Other businesses are having a challenging time reopening as 99.9-percent of them cannot pay wages close to that.  It is causing economic ripples throughout the region and it’s going to be interesting to see what happens to the Buckeye State.
  81. 2021 Monday W: Sports News– Medina Spirit trainer Bob Baffert sues over New York statewide ban on him and professional horseracing.
  82. 2021 Monday X: Texas State News– Democrats and their string-pullers in the Fake News Media are attacking Governor Greg Abbott, GOP, and his stance on promoting the 1836 Project.  The 1836 Project defends the history of the Lone Star State and will prohibit Marxist teachers from belittling or covering up the heroic stand by patriots against the fascist Mexican army.  Democrats always try to get rid of TRUE HISTORY so they can insert their FAKE HISTORY in its place.  Yes, Texas owned slaves, yes, Mexico ended slavery upon declaring its independence (and then tried to exterminate their indigenous population), and yes, the U.S. had slaves until 1865.  However, Brazil had them until 1888 and Haiti ended the institution in 1798.  The New World was founded upon slavery- especially from the Spanish, the Dutch, the Portuguese, and the Brits so what’s the left’s point?  This is why we remember history and why we congratulated Governor Abbott for his strong stance behind the 1836 Project.  Meanwhile, Texas-based border zones see 71-percent or more of all illegal aliens flooding into the country.  (Note- we encourage the completion of the wall, trenches, vehicle, boat, and personnel obstacles, electrified fencing, armed drones, and even snipers in the high traffic areas turning traffickers’ heads into splattered gray matter.  It is US or it is THEM.  We choose “THEM.”
  83. 2021 Monday Y: Fake News– Juan Williams, the always-wrong Fox News Channel ‘pundit’ says that the Republicans are preparing to steal future elections by denying the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, and the various states beginning to perform intensive audits of the 2020 Presidential- and other- elections.  It is clear that the dingleberry Mr. Williams has yet to visit Arizona’s election audit and it’s clear that even though he works at FNC, he truly consumes news from only the left side of the spectrum.  Whatever this dimwit says is to be scoffed at, laughed at, just like when he lost his job at NPR back in 2010 for saying honestly that when he saw ‘a bunch of Muslims on an airplane, it made him afraid.’  Mr. Williams boisterous defense of the LEFT at Fox over the past five years or so has demonstrated that he is willing to do anything to keep on the good side of his FNC MASTERS.  There is NO other way to say it.
  84. 2021 Monday Z: The Wrap-Up– Joe Biden at the NATO summit says that ‘Russia and communist China are trying to drive a wedge between NATO members.’ Uh, okay, how does this work? First, Joe Biden shuts off U.S. energy independence while giving the green light to Vladimir Putin to construct his natural gas pipeline from the Baltic coast to Germany. NATO exists to defend Europe from the Russians yet the Russians are going to supply Europe with energy thus making them dependent when President Donald J. Trump was supplying them with American natural gas.  If anyone is ‘driving a wedge between NATO member states,’ it would appear to be the Biden regime who not only is favorable to the Chi-Coms but also to the Russians who seemed to have been the ones to have put him in power.  Wow.
  85. 2022 Tuesday: We are living in STRANGE TIMES folks what with an ILLEGAL Presidency in the USA.  We have never been down this road before but what is clear, we are going to fight back.  Stick around.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The first Beach Boys album of the 1980s came out on March 24, 1980, the extremely popular “Keepin’ the Summer Alive.”  The album features the same lineup as the preceding one: 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), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  The title track received considerable airplay but like its predecessor, “Keepin’ the Summer Alive” received the same blasé reviews from the critics which is a shame.  We mean, come on, man, to quote our drooling president, does a band have to give up the hard drugs and return to the halcyon hippie days of the late 1960s-early 1970s to get the creative juices flowing again?  Ah, well, we love the band and enjoy the album and we sure hope that you will seek it out and to make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  You will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  55. 2020 Saturday: The Chinese Bat Flu continues causing problems around the world but such is communism: they either released it on purpose or are so inept that no other country around the world should trust them to do anything above fifth-grade level science.  Here are the global stats for today: 6,855,858 confirmed cases, 398,321 confirmed deaths, and 3,071,403 confirmed recoveries the last number of which, compared to deaths, is exceptionally good.

  63. 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 $4.218 per gallon, $2.854 in Florida, $3.957 in Hawaii, and $3.600 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Idaho: $3.275.  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- Botswana: $3.453 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,375,2445709,029 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.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.  The third nation owning much of our debt is Brazil- they own $300 billion.  Yesterday, we said that Brazil was number three, apparently, the United Kingdom holds more than they do with $368 billion.[xviii]
  64. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  We do our best to keep track of this so here is today’s assessment: ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the catastrophe, no, the calamity occurring on our southern border and the ‘laughing hyena,’ “Kooky,” has yet to make an appearance there in 76 days.  (Note- we say that were she in the professional foodservice business and didn’t show up on the first day, we would have terminated her worthless ass.  Just saying).  One America News updated their figures on the ongoing border disaster.  Here we go: (1) Cost to U.S. taxpayers on this day: $568,861,120.  Next, (2) Cost of caring for this blitzkrieg of illegals at this point as 2021: $171,527,815,168.  Imagine if this money went into rebuilding our economy, the one the Chi-Coms and the Democrats conspired to TRASH?  Wow.  Next, (3) the numbers of wet***ks who have crossed so far this year: 1,758,022.  Finally, (4) here are the number of illegals in the country as said by One America News: 35,758,024.  (Note- we have said the dwindling number as far back as 2009 was 35 million with a high of 50 million or more; well, we believe the sparse number is now around 50 million with a high of 80-85 million.  These people are sucking away at our resources.  We must deport all of them NOW.  Anyone who disagrees can go f**k themselves. 
  65. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The citizens of Budapest, Hungary, and across that fabled nation are taking to the streets in protest of the Chi-Coms’ planned building of a Chi-Com university with which they can continue spreading their cancerous ideology.  We stand with the citizens of Hungary and every other nation that has been subjected to the harsh tyranny of communism in their fight to remain free.  NO CHI-COMS.  Not now.  Not ever.  Boot them and their Belt and Roads crap project out of every nation (and you wonder why our numbers are currently in the crapper once again.  Oh, well…)  In other news, a nebulous tie between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Hunter Biden continues to emerge as we now know that lobbyists in their employ reached out to Ukrainian oligarchs so they could obtain meetings with Mrs. Clinton for a certain price, of course. 
  66. 2021 Sunday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information–  Things continue getting worse for Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci by the day.  We now know that Fauci’s organization- the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, aka NIAID- reportedly gave the Wuhan Institute of Virology $826,000 to study the Horseshoe Bat viruses and to accomplish Gain of Function tasks.  Thus, we have the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is calling on the compromised Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci to resign.  NOW.  In other interesting news, Judge Jeanine Pirro on her Fox News Channel program yesterday shared a video in which, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci back in early 2017 PREDICTED that the (Trump) administration was going to find itself confronted with a medical challenge the likes of which we hadn’t seen.  Amazing how the minute doctor was able to prophesize the coming of the global pandemic, almost as though he had advance notice.  Wow.  The deeper we dig the worse filth turns up.   Fauci was in the ‘anti-Trump camp’ from the start.  This story will one day shock the entire world.
  67. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– Yesterday, during the GOP convention in the Peach State, the GOP censured Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO, while the convention was ongoing.  Wow.  (Note- former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA 9th congressional district, should seek this job in 2022).   Next, crumbling Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-C, says that he is ‘not going to relinquish his pandemic emergency powers.’  This guy most likely will be gone come November; he still wants to stick it to the citizens of his state including fellow Democrats.  Speaking of asinine state chief executives, Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, pitches a new plan with which to provide unemployment benefits to part-time workers without jobs.  Wow. Love throwing around taxpayer money even though you won’t reopen your state.  What is wrong with this picture?   Finally, the U.S. Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Karen Gibson says she is more ‘fearful of cyberattack than she is of another January 06, 2021.’  Amen.
  68. 2021 Sunday J: New Category!  Moron News– New York’s shame, Rep. Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district (Joe Crowley, when are you going to take back your old seat?) said something truly stupid, truly, truly stupid- ‘In order to stop violent crime, the answer is to build fewer prisons and jails.’ Folks, this dimwitted horse’s ass never fails to disappoint, she will show her stupidity day after day after day and without being prodded to do so.  In reward, we will no longer call her by her professional name of ‘Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ but will go with her birth name of ‘Sandy “The Fly” Cortez.’
  69. 2022 Monday: How many cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu will see one year from last year?  The numbers last year were less than this year’s tally so far.  However, it’s an election year so this year, the numbers are going to be far higher…it’s the only way the Dems can win…

Trump president.   Speaking of Trump, the GOP establishment is desperate to thwart him from winning the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.
  62. 2017 Thursday: Much to the horror of President Donald J. Trump and to Trump’s voters, new Attorney-General Jeff Sessions recuses himself from the Russian collusion scam investigation saying that he had ‘met with the Russian ambassador.’  Huh.  Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and numerous other Democrats ALL had met with the Russian ambassador on far too many occasions yet there we were, the beginning of a fraudulent investigation that pitted American against American.  Shame.
  63. 2018 Friday: At a funeral before an invitation-only crowd of about 2,000 in Charlotte, N.C., the children of the Reverend Billy Graham remembered “America’s Pastor” as a man devoted to spreading the Gospel, and one who lived his life at home as he preached it in stadiums.  Meanwhile, a nor’easter pounded the Atlantic coast with hurricane-force winds and sideways rain and snow, grounding flights and leaving more than 2 million homes and businesses without power from North Carolina to Maine.

  66. 2021 Tuesday: DAY 42 OF THE BIDEN REGIME: GOD HELP US!  Today, FBI Director Christopher Wray sat before members of the U.S. Senate shagging questions on what we know about the now-infamous Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, the one in which, Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter infiltrators urged on Trump supporters to go berserk, assault the Capitol, and run amok.  Whenever anyone asked Director Wray about LEFTWING violence, such as what occurred over the course of the summer of 2020 and into the fall, he knew little to nothing, but when it came to so-called RIGHTWING violence, he was well-versed.  The Democrats on the Senate panel directed the choir and Director Wray sung loudly, with gusto, to the point that people watching on television had a thought: “It seems Director Wray knows little to nothing  How about next time you want answers from the FBI, why don’t you ask whoever is the TRUE BOSS of the once-proud law enforcement organization?”[vi] 
  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.

69. 2020 Monday E: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges passage of the $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill, but no movement is in sight as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi seems to be in no mood for helping ANY American with financial aid, ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS. The Chi-Vi economic toll affects both RED and BLUE states equally, yet very few want to help the American people.

  64. 2020 Monday:  Electors across the country meet today to determine who will carry the state’s presidential and vice-presidential votes to Washington, D.C. for the final Electoral College vote next month.  Republicans in battleground states plan to send alternative electors to represent them seeing as how several states had corrupt elections conducted by equally corrupt machines and election staff. White House advisor Stephen Miller says, ‘alternative electors is the way to go.’  We shall see what we shall see.  When the Electoral College meets, we expect to see Biden 306 and Trump 232 in the count.  Yes, the Dems and their Chi-Com masters STOLE this election.
  65. 2020 Monday A: Anyhow, as President Donald J. Trump and his followers continue saying, “It’s not over,” most people are coming to the conclusion that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is the next ‘president-elect.’  Meanwhile, as Georgians prepare to vote in January’s run-off elections, far-left-wing racist bigot (and shadow governor) Stacey Abrams reports she has 1.2 million absentee voters ready to go while currently, hundreds of citizens of the Peach State are already lining up to early-vote.  Folks, the Senate is lost.  Elsewhere, Michigan conducts a forensic audit of Canada’s Dominion Voting Systems machines and discovers what should be a disqualifying factor in throwing out the entire vote in that state: the allowable error in the machines is supposed to be NO MORE than .0008% but in the machines election officials used, the error rate was a shocking 68%.  This means the entire election is fraudulent and should be tossed.
  66. 2020 Monday B: The Wall Street Journal reports that the “Trump challenge is over.”  In the same vein, U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr says his boss is like a ‘deposed king ranting.’  Then, he resigned his office and said he will be gone before Christmas.  Loyalty.  One must admire it.  Speaking of ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden, we hear today that failed Midwestern former mayor and failed presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg heads the list to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.  Hell, Joe, why didn’t you appoint him your next U.S. ambassador to Iran (when you reopen our embassy there)?  Meanwhile, the ‘president-elect’ tells his supporters to stop with the calls for ‘defunding the police’ as it is costing them the support of the American people.
  67. 2020 Monday C: On the international front, we learn that the Chi-Coms have at least 2 million spies, honeypots, and intelligence agents inserted into governments, universities, corporations, and who knows?  Maybe even here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Time to begin finding and removing these skunks like California Congressman Eric Swalwell, Democrat.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump says that it’s concerns about them that will cause him to veto the Defense Department spending bill soon to come to his desk.   Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘Chi-Coms are the number one security threat to the United States.’  Watch “Pro-China Joe” welcome them to the White House along with Vladimir Putin and other thugs who want to destroy our country.  Elsewhere, Russian hackers breach the U.S. Treasury and Commerce Departments.  Not good.   We also learn that YouTube, Gmail, and Google were hit by some sort of outage which could be the Russkies, too.
  68. 2020 Monday D: In New York City, law enforcement offers a reward of $60,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the scumbag(s) responsible for the death of one-year-old toddler Carmelo Duncan who was hit by a stray round.   Meanwhile, we learn that last night’s attack on a cathedral in New York City was caused by what appears to have been a terrorist of some kind.
  69. 2020 Monday E: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges passage of the $908 billion COVID-19 relief bill, but no movement is in sight as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi seems to be in no mood for helping ANY American with financial aid, ONLY ILLEGAL ALIENS.  The Chi-Vi economic toll affects both RED and BLUE states equally, yet very few want to help the American people.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, vaccinations in the U.S. are underway.  Note of interest: the ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, noted left-wing loser was caught in a luxury building NOT WEARING A MASK.  Send the POS to the gulag.
  70. 2020 Monday F: Some nitwit asked former Vice President (and current Green Meanie) Al Gore had any regrets about conceding to George W. Bush to which, he said, “NO.”  Took you long enough, Al.  Meanwhile, adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Dick Morris, told John Bachman of Newsmax that the Democrats ‘pre-emptively put the fear of God into the U.S. Supreme Court with all this talk of court-packing.’  We always knew Chief Justice John Roberts was a coward.  Elsewhere, My Pillow guy Mike Lindell says “Fox News had to be in on it” meaning how the Democrats STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election from Trump and gave it to Biden.  Speaking of President Trump, he is appointing as many of his allies to various federal posts that incoming Biden-Harris administration won’t be able to topple or overturn.
  71. 2020 Monday G: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 72,221,634 confirmed cases, +571,758, 1,612,014, confirmed deaths, +7,498, and 47,218,235 confirmed recoveries, +406,451.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 16,477,271 confirmed cases, up 155,120 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,141 confirmed deaths, UP 1,243, and 7,478,028 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,127.
  72. 2020 Monday H: 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: 1,600,338 confirmed cases, 21,054 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,512 confirmed cases, 274 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 209,442 confirmed cases, 3,047 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Vermont, currently, they have 5,857 confirmed cases, 96 confirmed deaths, and 3,603 confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 359,070 confirmed cases, 3,004 confirmed deaths, and 338,321 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Columbia: they have 1,425,774 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 39,043 confirmed deaths and 1,335,517 confirmed recoveries.
  73. 2020 Monday I: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,861.55, DOWN 184.82 points (-0.62%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,440.04, UP 62.17 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,647.49, DOWN 57.97 points (-0.44%).  Price of GOLD: $1,831.60 per troy oz., -0.50 (-0.03%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.98 per troy oz., -0.067 (-0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,018.60 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.12%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,318.90 per troy oz., -14.20 (-0.61%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.52 per #, -0.0115 (-0.37%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.95, -0.04 (-0.09%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.94 Afghan Afghani.
  74. 2020 Monday J: Sports News- the Cleveland Indians announce they are going to change their name to something ‘less offensive.’  Nothing wrong with the name, maybe they just need to change the logo of Chief Wahoo.   As far as sports teams with Native American names left, we have the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, the MLB’s Atlanta Braves, and the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks.  The last one said there’s NO way they are going to change their name.  We shall see.  Meanwhile, we have Monday Night Football’s game tonight: (16) Baltimore Ravens, 47 (8-5) @ Cleveland Browns, 42 (9-4) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.
  75. 2020 Monday K: Final news of the evening- murder rates double in the city of Chicago.  Democrats in control, NO WONDER.  Shame on you, Mayor Lori “Space Alien” Lightfoot.  Elsewhere, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue says of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka “The Fly,” ‘thinks she is living in another country and not the United States.’  We wish she would return to whatever s-hole country from which, she came. Meanwhile, a U.S. Court of Appeals questions the Department of Justice’s drive to ban TikTok, the Chi-Com-intelligence-gathering ap.  Next, President Donald J. Trump appoints Roy Bernardi to the USPS Board of Governors.  Finally, Co-Chair of the RNC Tommie Hicks tells Newsmax that ‘the American people deserve answers on the Mueller probe.’  
  76. 2020 Monday L: Final news of the evening Pt. 2: Michigan Republican Congressman Paul Mitchell quits the GOP because of ‘Donald Trump.’  Meanwhile, the Trump administration removes Sudan from the state-sponsored terror list.   Speaking of terrorist states, the U.S. places new sanctions on Iranian and Turkish thugs involved in terrorism around the globe.  They believe individuals from Iran abducted former FBI agent Bob Levinson and spirited him to Iran.  The sanctions placed on Turkey result from their buying of Russian weapons systems.  We say, “Boot Turkey out of NATO.  Now.”
  77. 2020 Monday M:  This was our sentiment one year ago today: we encourage everyone to stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and their Democratic Party dupes in the United States are up to today.  You know it’s going to be good…
  78. 2021 Tuesday: Stick around to discover the truth along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention was another compilation package and a good one at that.  “Fiddlestix: The Best of Fairport Convention 1972-1984” hit record store shelves on July 21, 1999, and was a good one for fans.  It contains 19 tracks which include some rarities to sweeten the pot.  This veteran British band has so much glorious music that it is impossible to include everything on one single disc, thus one may have to pick up some of the other ‘best of’ compilations along with this one.  We believe you will be glad you did so please, seek this fine album wherever you shop for the absolute best in music.  You can thank us later.

Monday, December 14, 2020, Today in History:

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…

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of this wild Australian band, but you can rest assured that whenever we present Black Sabbath, we will follow them with AC/DC.

[ii] In about five years, we expect to spend a year or two covering the music of Motown and of other classic soul bands so please stay tuned for additional information.  We thank you.

[iii] When we do a couple of years of classic soul and Motown bands, the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson will be included among them.

[iv] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

[vi] Once again, unmistakable evidence of a malevolent Deep State exists here as the Intel Community swore up and down that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.  That was the entire purpose behind invading Iraq and toppling the scumbag Hussein but in the end loads of people died during and after the U.S.-led invasion, something President Donald J. Trump is trying to correct in 2019. 

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

27. 1944 Tuesday: As the Allies continue liberating Greece, clashes between Royalists and communist break out in the capital city of Athens. The nation is starving to death because the Nazis removed everything of value but instead of trying to establish a working government, the communists are trying to overthrow the ruins of the old one. The British won’t permit this.

  59. 2017 Tuesday: Thug financier George Soros announces he is donating $18 billion to the Open Society Foundations. This money goes into all manner of corrupt and illegal activities on the left side of the aisle or so we allege.     
  60. 2018 Wednesday: Residents of the Florida Panhandle community of Mexico Beach who had fled Hurricane Michael a week earlier returned home to find homes, businesses, and campers ripped to shreds; the storm had killed at least 59 people and caused more than $25 billion in damage in Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia. Meanwhile, Canada became the world’s largest legal marijuana marketplace; customers stood in long lines for hours and then lit up and celebrated on sidewalks.  
  61. 2019 Thursday: Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confirmed that the United States blocked nearly $400 million in foreign aid to the Ukraine because of corruption. Mulvaney said, “Quid pro quos happen all the time,” which they do.  This is how foreign diplomacy works, in order for foreign nations to obtain financial and other aid, they have to do something in order to obtain it, which drives the liberal Democrats bonkers.  They want to give money away without seeking something in return.  Look at how they have allowed NATO to get away without paying its bills until Donald J. Trump became the 45th
  62. 2020 Saturday: The U.S. Senate announces it will hold the confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court for the full Senate on October 23. Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump suggests that ‘should he lose on November 3, he might leave the country.’  Speaking of the election, fund-raising stats are available today for the month of September: Biden-Harris (or Harris-Biden, whichever you prefer) brought in $383 million while Trump-Pence brought in $248 million.   Regarding Judge Barrett, women’s marches in which, female (and tranny) liberals march around wearing pink P-U-S-S-Y hats protest her nomination while pro-Barrett marchers hold their own rallies, most notably in Washington, D.C.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump approves major disaster relief for California, after FEMA denied it, because, once again, much of the state is burning down.  Governor Gavin Newsom, Democrat, begged for the relief and in a phone call with the president, the president found a way to deliver him the much-needed aid.   When this current fire season ends, clear-cut the forests, and stop allowing fresh water to flow out to sea, you Democrat imbecile!
  63. 2020 Saturday A: Due to rising numbers of Chi-Vi stats across Europe, many European locales are reimposing draconian measures to thwart the Chi-Com gift to the world, the Kung Flu. Elsewhere, the Azerbaijanis blast Armenia for having fired Soviet-era SCUD missiles into its second largest city, knocking down 20 residential buildings, killing 13, and wounding hundreds of others.  They call it a ‘war crime.’  Meanwhile, citizens of Thailand take to the streets of Bangkok, demanding former military general and current Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha resign.  The protesters are also unhappy with the king, someone whom if YOU are found guilty of criticizing can land you up to 15 years in prison.
  64. 2020 Saturday B: Following yesterday’s assassination of a Parisian schoolteacher for having said something negative towards the ‘prophet,’ ‘founding father of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, police identify the slain suspect as an 18-year-old Chechen student. The scumbag sawed the head off the schoolteacher with a knife which led Parisian law enforcement to round up as many members of the family of this POS living on French soil.  France: YOU have a massive problem with all these Muslims living on your soil, round them up, strip them of citizenship, and deport them.
  65. 2020 Saturday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 39,502,909 confirmed cases, +376,697, 1,106,795, confirmed deaths, +5,698, and 27,147,928 confirmed recoveries, 191,015.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 8,194,266 confirmed cases, UP 84,455 from yesterday’s reporting, 222,404 confirmed deaths, UP 1,084, and 5,211,232 confirmed recoveries, UP 20,578.  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: 874,505 confirmed cases, 16,933 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,007 confirmed cases, 185 confirmed deaths, and 10,947 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 101,540 confirmed cases, 2,338 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: South Dakota- currently, they have 32,611 confirmed cases, 315 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Kristi Noem for behaving like your typical Democratic politician- thank you.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 302,770 confirmed cases, 2,190 confirmed deaths, and 265,445 confirmed recoveries.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention released their next album hot upon the heels of their previous effort, “Nine,” on October 16, 1973.  Critics panned the album to one degree or another because of its lopsidedness but what the heck, every band is entitled to an uneven effort here and there.  What matters is that the name of this glorious band continues unimpeded and that is all that matters.  The band now features (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars and vocals) (3) Jerry Donahue (lead guitar and backing vocals) (4) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars) and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano).  NO guests appeared on this album, so it is a solid effort by the new Fairport Convention lineup, an album we believe that everyone is going to want to add to their collections.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and then add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did- we guarantee it.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

182. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 01, 2021

BB. 1940 Monday: Hereditary enemies Romania and Hungary are at odds with one another over a border dispute. The Nazis would soon be joined by both as members of the Axis, Hungary being the fourth and Romania the fifth. However, when the invasion of the Soviet Union began the following year, the two competing powers would have Fascist Italian allies inserted between them in the advance into the Soviet Union to prevent unnecessary friction between the two.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 499

DAY ONE-HUNDRED-AND-SIXTY-TWO OF THE BIDEN REGIME

182. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 01, 2021:

  1. 70 Tuesday: Roman General Titus orders his legionnaires to set up battering rams to begin the attack on the inner walls of Jerusalem during the Great Jewish War.
  2. 649 Sunday: Bishops elect Martin I to succeed the 73rd Roman Catholic Pope Theodore I to become the 74th pope.  Martin would serve from today until November 12, 655 while his predecessor- Theodore I- served from November 24, 642 until May 14, 649.  
  3. 1535 Monday: Sir Thomas Moore went on trial in England, charged with high treason for rejecting the Oath of Supremacy.  Unfortunately, for him, the court convicted him and had him executed.
  4. 1643 Wednesday: On this date, a gathering of theologians and members of the English Parliament joined together to restructure the Church of England at the Westminster Assembly.
  5. 1798 Sunday: Napoleon Bonaparte’s invasion fleet reaches Alexandria, Egypt.
  6. 1834 Tuesday: The 13th U.S. Secretary of State John Forsyth assumed his post on this date.  First, a Democratic-Republican and then a Democrat, he served under President Andrew Jackson from today until March 04, 1841.  Meanwhile, the 13th U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Levi Woodbury assumed his post on this date, too.   First, a Democratic-Republican and then a Democrat, he served under Presidents Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren from today until March 04, 1841.

  11. 1863 Wednesday: The pivotal, three-day Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, resulting in a Union victory, began in Pennsylvania.  This would be one of the all-time bloodiest battles in the fight to free the slaves.  Little would anyone know that in 2021, even those who fought for freedom for others would be vilified as slave-holders and racists by dimwits on the millennial generation.  This is what happens when children are spared the belt across their asses.

  31. 1943 Thursday: The U.S. government began automatically withholding federal income tax from paychecks.  Elsewhere, the Romanians are beginning to worry about an Axis victory in the Soviet Union and so Marshall Antonescu, the Romanian dictator, journeys to Rome to see Il Duce Benito Mussolini where he suggests that his country, the Hungarians, and the Italians leave the Nazis in the lurch and seek peace with the Allies.  Duce is horrified but says nothing.  All of them will remain in the war for now.

Bush nominated federal appeals court Judge Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, beginning an ultimately but highly contentious confirmation process in which, Democrats, under the supervision of so-called “Lion of the Senate” Senator Ted Kennedy attempted to derail the nomination through cries of ‘sexual misconduct.’  Funny how Senator Kennedy would use such a challenge when he left a girl at the bottom of a lake to drown.  POS!  We assume that Senator Kennedy now burns in hell.

  61. 2013 Monday: America commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.  Elsewhere, the ‘Great One,” (yeah, right) President Barack Hussein Obama, during a visit to Tanzania, brushed aside sharp European criticism, suggesting that ALL nations spy on each other as the French and Germans expressed outrage over allegations of U.S. eavesdropping on European Union diplomats.  It has become clear that President Obama and his administration spied on ALMOST EVERYONE around the world via the NSA.
  62. 2014 Tuesday: Japan updates its constitution so that its self-defense forces can assist in the defense of allied nations coming under attack by foreign enemies.  However, the change has nothing to do with sending military assets on foreign military adventurism.  Elsewhere, David Greenglass, the star witness in the trial of his sister Ethel Rosenberg and her husband, Julius, died in New York City at age 92.  Ethel and Julius Rosenberg underwent execution via the electric chair in 1953 for conspiring to pass secrets about the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union; Greenglass served 10 years in prison for espionage followed by years of living under an assumed name.
  63. 2015 Wednesday: Debt-rating giant, Moody’s, downgrades Greece to a Caa3 rating following the nation skipping out on a $1.6 billion debt bailout repayment to the International Monetary Fund.  In four days, the Greek people will head to the polls to vote on whether they should accept austerity measures in exchange for a financial bailout or tell the IMF to go F*** off.  
  64. 2016 Friday: In the worst terrorist attack in Bangladesh in years, Islamic terrorists takeover a café in Dhaka, taking numerous hostages and driving others away from the foodservice operation.  In the ensuing violence, they murder 20 hostages and two cops which makes it the country’s worst such incidence.  Not good.  Ah, got to love the so-called “religion of peace.”
  65. 2017 Saturday: In Sinaloa, Mexico, Mexican law enforcement gets the jump on the drug traffickers killing 19 narcoterrorists in the assault.  Meanwhile, thanks to the backing of communist China, Ethiopian hack Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus takes over as the boss of the World Health Organization.  Less than three years later, his stunning ineptitude as well as his subservient status to Beijing would cause the COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Flu to sweep the world, killing hundreds of thousands and leaving many lives destroyed.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China, thank you.
  66. 2018 Sunday: Mexican voters- angry over corruption and narco-trafficker violence, elected leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as president.  Meanwhile, Canada began imposing tariffs on $12.6 billion in U.S. goods in retaliation for the Trump administration’s new taxes on steel and aluminum imported to the United States. 
  67. 2019 Monday: In Kabul, Afghanistan, as if to spit in the eye of the U.S.-led peace process, Taliban jihadists launch a major attack which leaves more than 100 dead and injured.  Elsewhere, after 30 years of NOT whaling, Japan returns to the high seas to begin hunting whales once again.  They claim it’s part of their heritage.
  68. 2020 Wednesday: Two Republican senators- Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and James Lankford of Oklahoma- have written a bill that will abolish- we repeat, ABOLISH- Columbus Day and will replace it with Juneteenth.  While nothing is wrong with making Juneteenth a federal holiday, abolishing Columbus Day to appease a left-wing communist mob is f**king insane.  Stop pandering to communists, you pathetic morons.  We will remember you and will add you to the infamous list upon which, Mitt Romney, another RINO POS of pandering s**t is a member.  Do not negate the nation’s history, either good or bad, or suffer negation yourselves.  Meanwhile, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio announces a $1 billion cut to the NYPD’s budget, even with murders and violent crimes skyrocketing.  WTF?
  69. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 10,512,383 confirmed cases, 512,331 confirmed deaths, and 5,387,249 confirmed recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 2,732,594 confirmed cases, UP by 52,633 new cases, 130,030 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 840,649 confirmed recoveries, UP by 14,688 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 232,657 confirmed cases, 6,090 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 917 confirmed cases, 18 confirmed deaths, and 736 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 33,264 confirmed cases, 1,339 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  70. 2020 Wednesday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,734.97, DOWN 77.91 points (0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,154.63, UP 95.86 points (0.95%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,115.86, UP 15.57 points (0.50%).  Meanwhile, in Silicon Valley, various BIG TECH companies urge President Donald J. Trump to rescind his recent executive order with which, he temporarily stops the vast numbers of guest workers entry to the country because in this time of a downturned economy, Americans should have first crack at ALL jobs and not imported illegals.  We hope the president will also deport Sundar Pichai and his family, whether born in the USA or not, because he is a scumbag who closed our blogs.
  71. 2021 Thursday: We will see what happens today and when we do, we will share it with everyone.  However, we will do our best to remain one step ahead of the Joestapo.

  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.
  58. 2012 Wednesday: Hospital authorities remove former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak–reported to be in a coma–from life support.  Meanwhile, a Syrian fighter pilot lands in Jordan and the pilot seeks asylum from the ongoing civil war.  Elsewhere, as southern Israel continues to brace under an ongoing barrage of (Iranian) rockets from the Palestinians, the Israeli air force begins to carry out sustained strikes on Hamas (and Iranian) targets in the region.

  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 next band to spin off from Jethro Tull or from one of its individual components- Aviator- released their first album, the self-titled debut- on February 13, 1979.  Aviator featured Clive Bunker (drummer and percussion from Jethro Tull), Jack Lancaster (all saxophones and brass instruments from Blodwyn Pig), John G. Perry (bass/vocals from a studio career), and Mick Rogers (guitars and vocals from Manfred Mann’s Earth Band).  In a way, this was yet another super group and to say the least, the first album did quite well among fans of English rock.  Sadly, however, the remastered CD does not hold up to the original vinyl recording as no one knows from where the tapes for this pressing originated.  Still, the album is a good one and if you want to hear some glorious rock music, this is a must-own.  Seek it out, give it a good listen, and add it to your collection.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Posted on behalf of Chef Vicky- she’s running late…

[ii] 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.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[iv] We promoted the music of Country Joe and the Fish beginning on Tuesday, 16-July-2013 through Friday, 26-July-2013.  This was one of the greatest bands to explode out of San Francisco, California, during the Psychedelic 1960s.

[vi] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know.  This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members.   Please stay tuned.

[vii] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[viii] 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.

[ix] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.
