216. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 04, 2022

2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden. A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.

  55. 2010 Wednesday: Officials estimate that 28,000 people have died from Mexican drug violence since December 2006.  One might question as to WHY the United Nations has not requested troops from across the world to go into that godforsaken country and eliminate the narcoterrorists?

  61. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia.  What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  62. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them.  Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?  Elsewhere, in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, former boy wonder pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli- a loser who jacked up the price of a generic drug to the point no one could afford it- undergoes conviction on three counts of securities fraud.
  63. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review.  The event was captured on live TV.  Even better, the former bus-driving thug Maduro blames the assassination attempt on Venezuelan exiles hiding in neighboring Colombia and on their handlers as well as the Venezuelan ‘mafia’ supposedly living in Florida.  Dude, STFU.
  64. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks.  Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.  Scumbags.  Elsewhere, Connor Bettis- a POS with a gun- hits the bar district in Dayton, Ohio, and kills 9 people and wounds another 27 before law enforcement arrives on scene and shoots the punk dead.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500.  Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem, or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!).  Wow.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  67. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  68. 2020 Tuesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  69. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus.  We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations! 
  70. 2020 Tuesday E: One teacher’s union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity.  Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.
  71. 2021 Wednesday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 200,907,364 confirmed cases, +660,570, 4,268,702 confirmed deaths, +9,788 and 180,887,601 confirmed recoveries, +375,059.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,159,774 confirmed cases, UP 101,353 from yesterday’s reporting, 631,256 confirmed deaths, UP 759, [ix] and 29,783,667 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,537.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]  
  72. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 312,814 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 91,264 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xi]  
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 885,766 confirmed cases, 6,503 confirmed deaths, and 854,995 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Laos,[xii] 168th country on the list: 7,305 cases of the virus, 7 confirmed deaths and 3,804 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]

[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.97. In Lao Kip, one greenback equals 9,550.00 and in Latvian Lats, a buck equal 0.604 and in Lebanese Pound, one dollar equals 1,505.50 of theirs. [xvii]        
  76. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.387 per gallon, $3.025 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.865 in Washington state. [xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $3.128.  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- Cayman Islands: $4.929 per U.S. Gallon. [xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,602,871,192,916 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  77. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here’s the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ daily ticker: Border czar for 134 days and 40 days since her one and only visit to the southern border.  Next, One America News shared the latest figures on the illegal alien tidal wave overwhelming the country today.  Here we go: (1) Cost this day alone: $533,587,136.  Next, (2) here is the cost for caring for all these illegal aliens this year: $236,150,079,488.  Next, (3) Here is the estimate of the numbers of illegals who have poured across the U.S.-Mexico border just this year: 2,420,349.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens roaming the U.S.: 36,420,348.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day predicted as far back as 2009 when our original blogsite got underway that the numbers back then were between 35-50 million illegal aliens.  Now, we believe that number to be closer to 75-100 million.  A person cannot walk into a hardware store, go into a liquor store, dine at an outdoor restaurant without illegals running up and begging for food.  This must stop and it’s going to stop extremely soon…
  78. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– A federal judge blocks Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order prohibiting the transport of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State by anyone other than federal authorities.  The Texas Republican governor, however, is fighting back against this blatant overreach of power.  Elsewhere, slobbering Joe Biden continues blaming Texas and Florida for increasing the numbers of Chi-Vi cases.  ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis, R-FL, fired back at the counterfeit president, slamming him for allowing in millions of illegal aliens many of whom are infected with COVID-19 by telling him to ‘do your job and leave us alone.’  Man, the applause was tremendous.  Meanwhile, we have more numbers for the illegal alien invasion for the month of July: the Border Patrol caught 203,865 illegals, at least 37,252 were able to evade capture, 78 died, another 7,867 were guilty of NO violation, which leaves an outstanding number of 1,079 illegals.  Again, this is all a conservative estimate as the so-called ‘got-away folks’ are far higher than the numbers shown here.
  79. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Pakistan announced today that it has completed approximately 90-percent of the border wall with Afghanistan.  They don’t want Afghan refugees pouring into their country any more than Europeans want more Muslims, or the United States want more human refuse from around the world.  Good for them.  Elsewhere, Hezbollah scumbags fired some rockets into northern Israel today which led to the Israelis conducting artillery barrages on known jihadist sites in Lebanon.
  80. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is predicting that within a few weeks, there will be ‘200,000 cases of the Chi-Vi daily in the United States.’  (Note- this is all you need to know that the border must be closed and that every single illegal alien is rounded up, imprisoned, and then deported ASAP).  Meanwhile, Dr. Ashish Jha told Newsmax today that the NIH director Dr. Francis Collins was right to walk back mask comments.  The good doctor was saying stupid stuff like parents should wear masks at home around their children.  Enough already.    
  81. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The World Health Organization is calling for a moratorium on COVID-19 booster shots.  Oh, really?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms continue their bitching and whining over the recent GOP COVID-19 origins report that placed the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for infecting the entire world with their Frankenstein-like lab-created Wuhan Bat Flu Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control yesterday bowed to Democratic-Socialist pressure and re-enacted a moratorium on evictions, something they lack the power to do.  Doubts continue to build as to the legality of such an order by an entity with no power in this area.  Look, folks, this is what the Democrats love- they love rules and regulations, none of them backed up by laws.  This is how they punish people, how they persecute people, and how they crush people.  This is bullshit and we would suggest that landlords pay NO attention to this order.
  82. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Democratic Party leadership in the House is urging their wavering members to run as “Biden Democrats” or risk losing the majority in 2022.  Meanwhile, Senator Kevin Cramer, R-ND, has introduced a bill (that will go nowhere) that says ‘if a state mandates COVID-19 vaccine passports, it also must mandate VOTER ID.’  That bill is going nowhere.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is correct when he blasts the House Democrats for their ongoing crusade to get a hold of his tax returns.  Good for you.
  83. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– A new poll says that more than half of California’s Hispanic population wants the recall against Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to succeed and like everyone else, the Latinos are members of all parties.  Meanwhile, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says that ‘our grandchildren will suffer repaying Joe Biden’s massive debt.’  Amen.  In other political news, ‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani says that ‘Cuomo may be guilty, but he does deserve due process.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, is suing MSNBC’s Rachel “Mudslinger” Maddow for libel.  We hope you win, congressman.
  84. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– In other political news, a new poll says that almost everyone is against partisan gerrymandering.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnel, RINO-KY, has outlined demands for future spending bills.  Mitch, you don’t have any power.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden plans to shift arms export sales based on human rights concerns.  Looks like Saudi Arabia is not going to get its weapons.
  85. 2021 Wednesday N: Economic News– Last month, everyone was celebrating how many NEW private sector jobs Joe Biden was going to create and then whoops-a-daisy, bad economic news.  Last month, the Biden regime created ONLY 330,000 jobs- many of them no more than hamburger-flipper or taco-stuffer jobs- rather than the highly predicted number of 653,000 new jobs.  Growth in U.S. services sector hits a record high in July.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro says “U.S. pensions took a big hit from the Chi-Coms’ crackdown on BIG TECH.”
  86. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3583 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 04, 14, 18, 36, 43, and Mega 14.  Out of 89,945 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $33,312.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Culver City, CA 90232.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #869 with a jackpot of $211 million up for grabs: 05, 21, 32, 36, 58, and Powerball 14.  Out of 85,166 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,844 apiece.
  87. 2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden.  A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.  Drooling Joe told his then-boss Barack Hussein Obama (and probably still boss) NOT to whack Osama but Obama ‘All Drama’ did.  Now, Joe wants us to think he’s a big, macho machine ordering death and destruction on every fourth string, D-team terrorist.  Folks, I don’t buy this crap nor will I.  When and if they confirm the DNA of the dead terrorist to be him or not, it means NOTHING.  NOTHING.  Big frigging deal.  Joe, you aren’t Donald J. Trump.  You’re a senile bum.  Resign now.

  56. 2020 Thursday A: In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 119,807 confirmed cases, 4,422 confirmed deaths, but Governor ‘Little Gavin’ Newsom will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  In the Aloha State, here are the stats: 653 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 609 confirmed recoveries which is incredibly good.  Thank you, Governor David Ige, perhaps you can urge Gavin Newsom and Jay Inslee to do the same?  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 22,729 confirmed cases, 1,138 confirmed deaths, but much like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries which says it’s all about politics.
  57. 2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment.  About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life.  Harmeet Dhillon launches a lawsuit on behalf of beaten journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon, last year.   Get them, Harmeet!   Again, we must say that the majority of us writing for the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believe that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party who channels Beijing’s dark money to its various action groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Time to bring ALL of them down.
  58. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 173,301,283 confirmed cases, +406,451, 3,726,693  confirmed deaths, +9,784 and 156,279,830 confirmed recoveries, +46,930.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,191,460 confirmed cases, UP 16,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 612,202 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[viii] and 28,053,098 confirmed recoveries, UP 29,228.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]  
  59. 2021 Friday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 294,296 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 165,353 deaths  
  60. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,794,217 confirmed cases, 63,393 confirmed deaths, and 2,059,372 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,329,867 confirmed cases, 36,973 confirmed deaths, and 1,970,341 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,471 confirmed cases, 501 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 441,674 confirmed cases, 5,889 confirmed deaths, and 215,260 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Missouri, home of newest Squad member: Rep. Cori “The Bit*h” Bush: they have 601,503 confirmed cases, 9,846 confirmed deaths, and 545,505 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  61. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,539 confirmed cases, 6,417 confirmed deaths, and 832,923 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country- Luxembourg, 104th country on the list, a proud country with a centuries’ old history, a: 70,182 cases of the virus, 818 confirmed deaths and 68,556 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  62. 2021 Friday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,756.39, UP 179.35 points (+0.52%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,814.59, UP 199.98 points (+1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,229.89, UP 37.04 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.37 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.30 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.31%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,841.08 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.07%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $23,300.00 per troy oz., -1,000.00 (-4.12%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., -2,500.00 (-0.41%). [xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96.     In Emirati Dirham, one greenback equals 3.67 and in Estonian Kroon, a buck equals 13.95 and in Ethiopian Birr, one dollar equals 43.19 of theirs.[xv]        
  63. 2021 Friday 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 $4.210 per gallon, $2.857 in Florida, $3.944 in Hawaii, and $3.590 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.909.  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- Namibia: $3.343 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,367,734,381,099 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  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.[xix]
  64. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #74 for the so-called ‘Border Czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this extremely important job and as of yet, has not shown up to work…once.  Seems like we need a new border czar and not Willie Brown’s former bed partner.  Just saying… In other border news, reports on Newsmax say that nearly $2 billion earmarked for the border wall along the heaviest traffic sector remains unused.  Joe Biden- use this money to continue wall construction.  Now. Speaking of “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden (that tape with him talking about a 7-year-old girl looking like she’s 19 was extremely creepy and classic, classic “Cho-Mo Joe”), today, he officially ended President Donald J. Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy.
  65. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– A Chinese virologist- Dr. Lei-Meng Yan- says ‘Dr. Fauci’s leaked emails prove her claim that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu was indeed leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a majority of people around the globe now believe.’  Amen.  Dr. Fauci was sending the lab $600,000 per year to study bat viruses.  Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci now demands the Chi-Coms release the data on the bat cave patients who were the original people sickened by the Wuhan Flu.
  66. 2021 Friday H: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Advance portions of the Pentagon study into unidentified aerial (and submersible) phenomena are beginning to come out.  Initial excerpts suggest inconclusive findings stating that they could be ‘Chi-Com or Russian highly advanced craft.’  However, Lue Elizondo, the man who headed up the investigation at the Pentagon says that the report actually says the sightings of these and other unknown craft date back 70 years which confirms there is NO way either the Russians or the Chi-Coms could be responsible.  Sightings occurred for as long as human beings have walked the Earth; however, once the nuclear age commenced in the 1950s, the sightings have gone straight up (like the ‘hockey stick model’ that doofus promoting climate change uses) and only continue increasing.  (Note- the Chi-Coms have been busy stealing our (and everyone else’s) technology for decades which suggests there is no way the Beijing bullies could be responsible for this.  We seem to have a BIG PROBLEM.  Anyhow, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says he’s ‘glad he blew the whistle on this problem and got the ball rolling.’  Thank you, senator, thank you.  We didn’t agree with you on much else, but this is a great thing you have done for our country.  
  67. 2021 Friday I: Big Tech News– Little Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook have banned President Donald J. Trump from its social media app (we closed our accounts long, long ago) for the next TWO years, meaning they think they are cutting him off from the rest of the world through the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  However, President Trump said, ‘next time he’s in the White House, there won’t be any dinners for Zuckerberg and his wife, it will be all business.’  We look forward to that time, folks.  Time to use the Sherman Antitrust Act and bust up not only Facebook but also Twitter, Instagram, and all the rest of the mind-controlling apps spying on us and canceling anyone they choose.  
  68. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the ‘graffiti all over her home is a sign of the times in the United States.’  Next the U.S. Senate GOP rejects the Biden regime’s infrastructure demand which leads to feeble old Joe rejecting their rejection.  Wow.  Moving on, yesterday, we reported that jobs created in May were something like 985,000 which was a false number- the true number was 559,000 new jobs which economists said should have been 650,000; the Republicans are ripping Joe Biden a new one over his ineptitude when it comes to being a ‘successful president.’  This man is a walking, stumbling, bumbling disaster and all we can say is ‘IF the Chi-Coms want to get in their licks, they better do it as quickly as possible because once the 2020 Election audits conclude, Joe will be selling pencils on the street corner.
  69. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Former White House counsel under the Trump administration Don McGahn testified before Congress today.  Next, Vice President Mike Pence said that “Black lives saved, not endangered, by the police.”  Next, the Pentagon says- for now- U.S. military bases still cannot fly the LGBTQIA+ flag (but how long before they do).   Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association drops claims against New York Attorney General Leticia James so the NRA can pursue other claims in Manhattan.  Meanwhile, former ambassador to the United States from Israel- Michael Oren- says, ‘it’s always premature to eulogize Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.’  Amen.
  70. 2021 Friday L: Business News– Nonfungible Tokens- so-called NFT sales have fallen by 90-percent as the market implodes.  NFTs are cryptographic assets on blockchain that in the era of cryptocurrencies and other things that don’t exist in the REAL world are things hucksters and shysters peddle to unsuspecting morons wanting to be COOL.  (Note- NFTs are a bogus thing such as digital art and other high-tech crap Millennials love.  Screw ‘em).
  71. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Draw #1665 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 04, 30, 34, 41, 64, and Mega 08.  Stay tuned for further details.  Out of 58,203 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $427 apiece.
  72. 2022 Saturday: Let’s see what corruption the Democrats and their bosses in Beijing are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys would be on tour for the next several years while they were trying to get Brian Wilson out of the doldrums of mental illness and back to being a functioning member of the group.  Thus, the record label began creating some phenomenal repackaging of the group’s earlier hits.  “Endless Summer” came out on June 24, 1974 and featured a rollicking collection of tunes from 1963 to 1965.  Back in the day, this was a double LP and catapulted the band back to popularity and sales as old fans who abandoned them returned and new fans proclaimed a ‘collective wow’ what with all the fun summer songs about surfin,’ girls, and hot rods.  As the Vietnam War sputtered to a close and Watergate was in the history books, everyone wanted to have a fun time once again and with this album, they could and did.  Seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  74. 2021 Monday: JOE BIDEN/JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– The U.S. Department of the Interior under the watchful eye of the first Norwegian-Native American Secretary Debra Haaland, is creating a new unit with which to investigate missing Native Americans.  This is good.  Many Native Americans disappear or are harmed on reservations, typically by outsiders, so this is something that is long overdue.  Next, Joe Biden’s economic advisor Brian Deese says, ‘the economy has a long ways to go’ before it improves.  Under the previous president, the economy was vastly improved whereas the Biden administration is returning it to the death spiral it was in when Obama-Biden were in charge.  In other ‘Biden news,’ Dr. Jill Biden is being savaged for wearing fishnet stockings and looking like a ‘ho.’  Meanwhile, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, RINO, says that ‘Joe Biden is lying to the American people’ on virtually everything.  We concur but it’s not going to help you become president one day, doughboy.

Wow.  (Note- Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, says he opposes the corporate tax hikes in the infrastructure bill).
  76. 2021 Monday B: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS I–  Michael Oren, noted author and an Israeli-American, says that the ‘People’s Republic of China is extending its reach into the Middle East’ and that the ‘United States should take note.’  Next, Egypt holds a BIG MUMMIES PARADE in which it trotted out nearly 30 mummies in specially equipped vehicles so as to stimulate renewed interest in tourism from abroad.  We would have loved to have seen that.  In other foreign news, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says it ‘appears that the United States is undergoing a (communist) Chinese-style ‘Cultural Revolution’ which was not good for the citizens of China back in the day.  We, ourselves, have said this on numerous occasions.  Finally, Iran rejects talks with the United States, demands feeble old Joe Biden lift all sanctions against the jihadist regime, and compensates all damages done to them by the U.S. and then, we can talk.  We say, “Nuke them!”

  79. 2021 Monday E: SHOWBIZ AND ENTERTAINMENT NEWS– “Godzilla v. King Kong’ did very well in its first weekend bringing in $32 million.  Theaters are just reopening so this is a positive sign that things could return to normal.  In other showbiz news, imprisoned sexual deviate and film producer Harvey Weinstein is seeking a new trial in that the jury in his first one he believes was prejudiced against him.  It most likely was.

Rosenstein says that ‘we should wait and see what information Special Counsel John Durham produces regarding Crossfire Hurricane.’  Meanwhile, DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison says that the ‘Democratic Party’s brand is broken, that the party is barely functioning.  It’s all about organize, organize, organize.’
  82. 2021 Monday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II– As Russian troops and armored units continue to amass along the eastern border of the Ukraine, Ukraine and NATO are going to hold joint military drills.  Many believe that Vladimir Putin- a man, who by the way, signed legislation into law today that will allow him to rule with an iron fist until 2036- is testing senile old Joe Biden to see how far he can push the old coot before the U.S. responds.  This is coming at a time when Russia is cementing its claim to many parts of the Arctic just as communist China, Iran, North Korea, and other nations are behaving aggressively to both the U.S. and to other nations around the globe.  We believe we are witnessing a new Axis alliance which will conquer the world unfolding before our very eyes.

Trump ‘lost’ the state by was 12,000 votes.  No matter Democrats are wetting their pants.  Next, Georgia GOP officials told Coca-Cola® to get out of their state as they are another example of WOKEISM run amok.[xv]  Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, blasts Commissioner Manfred over his hypocrisy when it comes to blasting Georgia while remaining mum on communist China.  After all, MLB is tight with the Chi-Com intelligence gathering app, Tencent.  (Note- Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says he will not throw out the first pitch at the Texas Rangers baseball game over the MLB and its despicable actions).
  84. 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was trolling liberals by saying, he is now going to identify as Chinese to get preferential treatment.  Next, former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, also a U.S. candidate, says he will uphold the Trump agenda.  Moving on, Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock, D-GA, had to remove a heretical ‘Christian’ tweet that irritated true believers and not Marxists like him.  F**k them and f**k him.  Speaking of Christianity, we saw amazing video of a Christian preacher in Canada throwing the cops out of the church- at least six or seven of them- who came to close down his services because there were more people there than the law would allow.  F**k Canada.[xvi]  God bless you, pastor!

Next, gun control advocates push the Biden administration to do more on guns.  Moving on, the U.S. Supreme Court of the United States ends the Twitter-President Donald J.

[ii] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012.  You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.

[iii] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.

[iv] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[v] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[vi] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

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

[xi] Political strategist Dick Morris says the entire thing is about collectivizing the American worker by forcing everyone to join labor unions.  Amen, Dick!

[xii] Once again, the Democrats play one component of the identity politics group against another so they can then send Asian-Americans (and Pacific Islanders) out into the streets demanding a STOP to Asian HATE.  Only problem with having members of the black community to commit your violent crimes is that unless they dress in whiteface, we know who they are, and we know who’s directing them: DEMOCRATS.

[xiii] Speaking of Arizona, the Democrat-controlled Fake News Media is blasting Arizona over its recount of all votes in the 2020 Presidential Election.  Hey, Dems, if you have nothing to hide, what the f**k are you frightened of? 

[xiv] Speaking of Governor Ron DeSantis, CBS’ “60 Minutes” attempted to twist an interview done with him at a news conference by rearranging it to suit their agenda and their narrative.  Unluckily for them, the Florida governor had his people film the entire event so he could show the TRUTH.  Come on, Fake News Media, when are you going to learn your lessons.

[xv] Right now, PepsiCo® stands to gain BIG unless, they, too, join the cavalcade of WOKEISM f**king up our country.

[xvi] These flipping people are entering the Nazi-Fascist period in their political history when the power of the state supplants all other rights including worship services.  Canada is now an enemy of the United States and of free people everywhere.

[xvii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

  65. 2020 Tuesday H: “Incoming national security adviser” Jake Sullivan under ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden is whining that the Pentagon is NOT meeting with them.  Elsewhere, a lawsuit charges the Hawaiian Sweet Bread Company with not being ‘Hawaiian enough.’  Next, the cops involved in the Breonna Taylor case have now all been fired.  Meanwhile, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is on her backfoot due to the massive increase in shootings in the once lovely city including the recent death of a seven-year-old girl.  People- stop with the Defund the Police bull crap.  It’s stupid.
  66. 2020 Tuesday I: Here are tonight’s Mega Millions #1620 Drawing with a $376,000,000 jackpot up for grabs: 01, 31, 35, 48, 62, and Mega 19.  Out of 138,376 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $36,629.
  67. 2020 Tuesday J: Luke Letlow, incoming GOP congressman-elect from Louisiana dies at age 41, a victim of the Beijing Bat Bug.  He became ill last week, went to the hospital, became well enough to return home, then worsened and had to return to the hospital where he died.  Why didn’t they provide him with hydroxychloroquine?
  68. 2020 Tuesday:  You know as well as we do that the Democratic stooges are fast at work terrifying the GOP into folding on Trump and the 2020 Electoral College confirmation coming up on January 6, 2021.  Their Chi-Com backers are urging them on, so we encourage everyone to stick around to discover what the heck they’re up to…

Richard Thompson released his next studio album, “The Old Kit Bag,” on February 10, 2003.  Once again, the legendary guitarist delivered the goods which music critics consider to be among his best works yet did not fare well in the stores.  Grunge was exploding all over the place and it was difficult for old-timers to remain current yet in our eyes, Mr. Thompson is ALWAYS current no matter what anyone else thinks.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist/vocalist are (1) Michael Jerome (drums, percussion); (2) Danny Thompson (bass); and (3) Judith Owen (vocals).  For some, Thompson is an acquired taste and for loads of others, his music is always a joy to behold.  We hope you will investigate this one to your hearts’- and ears’- content.  We think you will be glad you did.

  51. 2017 Thursday: According to On This Day, scientists at Cal-Tech publish an article in the journal, “Current Biology,” of the first brainless animal, the jellyfish Cassiopeia, that actually ‘sleeps.’  Most scientists believe that only animals gifted with brains sleep, as it is a normal function for creatures with thought processes.
  52. 2018 Friday: Trembling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford offers to testify before the U.S. Senate on the allegations of rape and sexual abuse she launched against President Donald J. Trump’s second U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  It would later turn out that she was a liar as were other women- most notably those turned up (or out) by thug attorney, Michael Avenatti.  It was all a scheme to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation and drive him from the nomination.  It didn’t work.
  53. 2019 Saturday: In Indonesia’s Jambi Province, skies go bright red as the worst illegal forest fires since 2015 blaze away, destroying more than 800,000 acres and causing respiratory distress for more than a million citizens.  They need Smokey the Bear. 
  54. 2020 Monday: Tropical Storm Beta is expected to attain hurricane status when it arrives on the Texas gulf coast sometime late today/early tomorrow.  Meanwhile, outside Los Angeles, the Bobcat Fire doubles in size thanks to warm winds breathing new life into it.  Next, on the other side of the country, New York City Transit officials say yesterday’s derailment of a subway train occurred due to vandalism.  No one was hurt but it’s clear that Antifa/Black Lives Matter is extending its reach when it comes to terrorism.  Moving on, the Biden-Harris (or is it Harris-Biden) 2020 campaign announces it has $466 million in its coffers, having pulled in more than $100 million in the previous 48 hours by milking the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whereas the Trump-Pence campaign as $325 million on hand.  Speaking of President Trump and Justice Ginsburg, the commander-in-chief announces he will nominate his replacement pick for Justice Ginsburg on Thursday or Friday of this week.  All the while, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi promises to impeach President Trump- again!- should he fulfill his constitutional duty to nominate someone to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.   Meanwhile, well-known genius Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC says that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, moves forward with hearings on the nominee, that he ‘is playing with fire.’  Yikes.
  55. 2020 Monday A: Speaking of angry Democrats, the Dems say they are going to (1) end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate on EVERYTHING meaning every vote will be decided by the nuclear option, 50-percent plus one.  (2) They will give statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columba.  Why not give statehood to the U.S. Virgin Islands, to Guam, to Northern Marianas Islands, and to American Samoa.  (3) They plan to stack the Supreme Court with an additional five to seven justices.  (4) They plan to topple the Electoral College.  (5) They plan to increase taxes by $3 TRILLION as well as to reimpose the Obamacare mandate, all the rules and regulations overturned and removed by the Trump administration, and jump back in to the JCPOA, the Paris Climate Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  (6) They are going to grant the franchise to prisoners serving time, to felons, and to 15-and-16-year-olds.  What more can we say?  We must crush this illegitimate, Chi-Com colluding political party.  It is us or them.
  56. 2020 Monday B: Famed NBA star and noted ‘genius’ LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers chides Lori Loughlin, actress, and her husband who must go to prison for having bribed the university of their daughter’s choice to get her in, for allowing Loughlin to choose the facility.  LeBron says ‘it ain’t right.’  Elsewhere, a survey finds that unless Chinese Virus relief issues are soon met, 60-percent of all restaurants will close their doors forever.  Imagine all the real estate the Chi-Coms will be buying via shadow companies, straw buyers, and of course, their Democratic Party hacks.
  57. 2020 Monday C: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr labels three cities in the United States as anarchist jurisdictions- New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, for permitting and enabling out-of-control riots, mob violence, looting, rape, robbery, arson, and murder.  The AG said: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest.  We cannot waste federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance.”  The federal government seeks to strip these cities who have crippled their law enforcement via defunding or reduction so as to force them back into line.  New York City currently receives about $7 billion annually from U.S. taxpayers.  This must stop. Strip Portland and Seattle of their funding, too, until they regain their senses, or the voters replace them.   
  58. 2020 Monday D: A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled today that mail-in election ballots can be counted for up to SIX DAYS post-Election Day so long as they are postmarked on Election Day.  Bret Baier on FNC believes this will go to the Supreme Court to be overturned or put into law.  Meanwhile, President Trump is on the trail in the Midwest, stopping in Ohio and traveling elsewhere while “Pro-China Joe” Biden visited Wisconsin, there to try to re-energize his flagging base.  Question is, WHO is the real string-puller behind former VP Biden?  We suspect it’s none other than Xi Jinping and that Congressman James Clyburn is the conduit through which the alleged cash flow goes.  Think about it: Biden was lost until Clyburn vouched for him, impeachment failed, the U.S.-Sino Trade Deal signed and then the Chi-Com Flu arrived on scene.  We don’t believe in coincidences nor should YOU.
  59. 2020 Monday E: Folks, here are the numbers for the Wuhan Waltz, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 31,120,980 confirmed cases, +261,911, 961,656, confirmed deaths, +3,342, and 21,287,328 confirmed recoveries, +188,233.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,932,317 confirmed cases, up 68,463 from yesterday’s reporting, 202,982 confirmed deaths, UP 573, and 3,723,573 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,066.  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: 789,717 confirmed cases, 15,029 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,534 confirmed cases, 120 confirmed deaths, and 4,759 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 86,317 confirmed cases, 2,131 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Michigan- currently, they have 129,662 confirmed cases, 6,982 confirmed deaths, but for some unknown reason NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- what more do you need to know about Democratic hack Governor Gretchen Whitmer?  Her husband can take his boat out on the lake but anyone else- YOU better watch out!  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 190,929 confirmed cases, 1,273 confirmed deaths, and 136,780 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Monday F: BAD DAY for stocks today, all because of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,147.70, DOWN 509.72 points (-1.84%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,778.80, DOWN 14.48 points (-0.13%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,281.06, DOWN 38.41 points (-1.16%).  Price of GOLD: $1,918.30 per troy oz., +7.70 (+0.40%). Here is the price of SILVER: $24.84 per troy oz., +0.458 (+1.88%).  Price of PLATINUM: $883.90 per troy oz., +7.80 (+0.89%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,281.70 per troy oz., -99.10 (-4.16%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.04 per #, +0.0045 +-0.15%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.62, +0.31 (+0.79%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.81 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  61. 2020 Monday G: Sadly, today Tommy DeVito- original guitarist/vocalist with the Four Seasons (would eventually be known as Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons)- lost his battle with the lab-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  DeVito died in Las Vegas, Nevada, at age 92.  He was with the Four Seasons from 1960-1970.  
  62. 2021 Tuesday: As always, we do not know what yet is to come but when we discover what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party patsies are doing today, you will be the first to know so please- stick around…

  45. 2011 Tuesday: A large convoy of Libyan military vehicles, numbering as many as 250, cross over into northern Niger with an escort from that nation.  As the rebels run amok in Libya- thanks to the Obama administration and NATO- people speculate that Moammar Gaddafi could be among them but no confirmation of this is released by any authority.  Things won’t end well for that thug.  Meanwhile, the world discovers that Gaddafi and the CIA participated in the U.S. Rendition program by which terrorists captured on the battlefield that instead of going to Guantanamo Bay’s prison went to Tripoli to undergo ‘enhanced interrogation.’  Sucks to be them. a
  46. 2012 Thursday: At the Democratic National Convention, President Barack Obama accepts his party for a second term for the 2012 Elections.  Elsewhere, Human Rights Watch continues blasting the United States for continuing evidence of waterboarding being used to interrogate War on Terror captives.  Say what?  This was not supposed to occur under the benevolent eye of President Barack Hussein Obama.

  49. 2015 Sunday: In the southern portion of Germany, beleaguered police officials announce that they are swamped by the arrival of more than 13,000 Muslim ‘refugees’ fleeing from war torn areas such as Syria, Afghanistan, and Libya.  These people arrive in Southern Europe and begin trekking to Germany because their prime minister bid them come.  Talk about rearranging one of Europe’s great nations!  Oi vie!
  50. 2016 Tuesday:  The United States and communist China formally commit to the Paris Climate Accord which will devastate the U.S. economy while continuing to build that of the nation’s second largest economy.  Not good.  At the same time, the Obama administration does its best to reassure Asian nations that the U.S. will indeed ratify the Trans-Pacific Partnership, aka the TPP, that will also destroy American jobs.  Thank you, President Obama.
  51. 2017 Wednesday: Hurricane Irma roars into the Caribbean region hammering the British Virgin Islands, St. Maarten, and Barbuda.  The devastation is horrific and, in some locations, entire towns and buildings are swept away or blown down. 
  52. 2018 Thursday: With New York and New Jersey joining the investigation into sexual abuse by the Catholic Church, the number of states delving into the evils perpetrated by pedophile priests increases to six.  Meanwhile, India legalizes gay sex, overturning British colonial laws on the books.  Welcome to the New Age!
  53. 2019 Friday: After making landfall over Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, Hurricane Dorian moves up the eastern seaboard and is set to blow into southeastern Canada with storm-force winds and loads of rain.  Elsewhere, in Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe dies at age 95.  Thought to rule forever, this thug was handed a prosperous nation in 1980 and drove it into the ground like the racist thug he was.  He served as the nation’s prime minister from 1980 to 1987 and then as its president from 1988 to 2017 when he was deposed. 
  54. 2020 Sunday: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -so-called Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 26,961,765 confirmed cases, +339,089, 880,955, confirmed deaths, +6,247, and 18,021,000 confirmed recoveries, +303,089.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,365,880 confirmed cases, up 28,206 from yesterday’s reporting, 191,643 confirmed deaths, UP 379, and 3,412,534 confirmed recoveries, UP 9,666.  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: 736,083 confirmed cases, 13,709 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 9,693 confirmed cases, 84 confirmed deaths, and 2,8931 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 79,901 confirmed cases, 2,043 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Utah- currently, they have 54,364 confirmed cases, 421 confirmed deaths, but for some unknown reason NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Gary Herbert, what kind of Republican are you?
  55. 2021 Labor Day Monday: Today is Labor Day, we are busy at our restaurant now that things are open and booming but I will do my best to keep everyone apprised of the news of the day- Chef Goldie.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Martin Barre- “Live in NYC”- came out on October 15, 2019.  The famed guitarist and one of the longest-serving members of Jethro Tull went out and conducted a musical celebration of his half century in the music industry.  He performed his tunes as well as those of Jethro Tull and what a show it was.  The band features Mr. Barre (guitars, mandolins, banjos, flutes, and keyboards), Dan Crisp (guitars and vocals), George Lindsey and David Schoepke (drums and percussion), and Alan Thompson (bass, vocals).  Say what you will about the old timers, compared to modern-day garbage, this man lights the stage on fire.  We hope that everyone will go to their favorite site for the absolute best in rock and roll music and pick it up.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

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

[vi] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[viii] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[ix] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

Politicians such as Nancy Pelosi believe they are untouchable; well, WHY can’t we join in class action lawsuits and sue the living hell out of every BLUE State- or- City political hack for DERELICTION OF DUTY?

HHH. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500. Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel …

  33. 1983 Thursday: New York Yankee outfielder Dave Winfield threw a baseball during warm-ups and accidentally killed a seagull.

  50. 2010 Wednesday: Officials estimate that 28,000 people have died from Mexican drug violence since December 2006. One might question as to WHY the United Nations has not requested troops from across the world to go into that godforsaken country and eliminate the narcoterrorists?

  56. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia. What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  57. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them. Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?  Elsewhere, in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, former boy wonder pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli- a loser who jacked up the price of a generic drug to the point no one could afford it- undergoes conviction on three counts of securities fraud.
  58. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review. The event was captured on live TV.  Even better, the former bus-driving thug Maduro blames the assassination attempt on Venezuelan exiles hiding in neighboring Colombia and on their handlers as well as the Venezuelan ‘mafia’ supposedly living in Florida.  Dude, STFU.
  59. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks. Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.   Elsewhere, Connor Bettis- a POS with a gun- hits the bar district in Dayton, Ohio, and kills 9 people and wounds another 27 before law enforcement arrives on scene and shoots the punk dead.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500. Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!). 
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 new recoveries. We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: 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: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  63. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  64. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus. We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations! 
  65. 2020 Tuesday E: One teachers union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity. Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.
  66. 2021 Wednesday:  Friends, stick around to discover whatever the heck is going on around the world today…what have the Chi-Coms instructed drooling Joe Biden to do today?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Jethro Tull hit record store shelves on September 22, 2009: “Live at Madison Square Garden 1978.”  This 1 DVD/1 CD album was LIVE in concert and it featured mostly tunes from “Songs from the Wood” and “Heavy Horses” plus some much-beloved favorites.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), Barriemore Barlow (drums), and Dee Palmer (keyboards and synthesizers).  We tend to favor the early four albums over the more modern efforts but still, this is a good way to see the band in a whole different light.  We hope you will seek it out and consider making it a part of your listening day.  Enjoy.

Trump or bring down the Western World.  Beijing, we are not going to settle for Xi-ism, no flipping way.  Here are the stats for the day around the world: 6,591,391 confirmed cases, 388,710 confirmed deaths, but 2,851,157 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the numbers: 1,910,843 confirmed cases, 109,639 confirmed deaths, but 437,251 confirmed recoveries, the last number of which would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics.
  53. 2020 Thursday A: In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 119,807 confirmed cases, 4,422 confirmed deaths, but Governor ‘Little Gavin’ Newsom will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  In the Aloha State, here are the stats: 653 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 609 confirmed recoveries which is incredibly good.  Thank you, Governor David Ige, perhaps you can urge Gavin Newsom and Jay Inslee to do the same?  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 22,729 confirmed cases, 1,138 confirmed deaths, but much like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries which says it’s all about politics.
  54. 2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment.  About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life.  Harmeet Dhillon launches a lawsuit on behalf of beaten journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon, last year.   Get them, Harmeet!   Again, we must say that the majority of us writing for the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believe that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party who channels Beijing’s dark money to its various action groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Time to bring ALL of them down.
  55. 2021 Friday: Let’s see what corruption the Democrats and their bosses in Beijing are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Although some fans of Jethro Tull loved both “Thick as a Brick” and “A Passion Play,” many were disappointed that the band had not plowed on in “Aqualung” or “Benefit” mode at best or “This Was” and “Stand Up” at worst, many were skeptical and support for the band was wavering somewhat which is pretty amazing.  After “Aqualung,” you would have thought the band would have put its creative talents and efforts into a another, greater album but they went the other route.  “War Child,” released on October 14, 1974 put the band back on track what with the massive single, “Bungle in the Jungle.”  Sure, you can slam it as being ‘pop’ but it was a great tune just as the album was.  Once the critics have nibbled out a chink, instead of lavishing praise where praise is do, they continue needling away.  Ah well, you know our motto: “F**k the critics,” this is a great album so seek it out now.  The lineup features Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jeffrey Hammond (bass and keyboards), John Evan (keyboards), and Barriemore Barlow (drums).

  71. 2020 Sunday: The Kung Flu, also known as COVID-19, aka Coronavirus, continues causing havoc around the globe as it infects and slays people who are in its path.  As of today, there are more than 1,260,104 confirmed cases globally what with 69,082 confirmed dead, all because of China’s failure to close their infamous wet markets.  In the United States, there are 331,234 confirmed U.S. cases of the Wuhan Flu what with 9,458 dead Americans.  The price Beijing is going to pay when this is over is going to be extremely harmful to their communist overlords and who knows?  China might throw off its cruel taskmasters and Nationalist China would reclaim the mainland.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Michael Schenker Group roared into Japan 30 years after their first appearance there and recorded a live album as well as a DVD of the concert.  “The 30th Anniversary Concert- Live in Tokyo” hit record store shelves on October 19, 2010.  The band features the amazing Michael Schenker (guitars), Gary Barden (vocals), Neil Murray (bass), Simon Phillips (drums), and Wayne Findlay (keyboards/rhythm guitar/vocals).  There is no dispute that the band members of UFO and the subsequent side bands and endeavors are among the greatest veteran rock musicians on the globe.  These guys rock until they drop and even then continue rocking.  We love this album and we encourage everyone to visit whatever site it is you do so you can pick it up, add it to your collection, and enjoy for years- if not decades to come.  You will be glad you did.

43. 1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Tibet in the advance of Chinese troops to take refuge in neighboring India. The Chi-Coms claim that Tibet is their territory in the same way they claim Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao. The U.S. should have nuked the Chi-Coms long ago when we had the opportunity; it’s a shame we failed to do what had to be done.

  35. 1945 Saturday: With the Japanese island of Iwo Jima all but secure, U.S. troops are now seeking out Imperial Japanese holdouts clinging to caves, bunkers, and other territory.  Most of the Japanese who fought to defend the island are dead but there are still enough remaining to make inattention by U.S. soldiers lethal.
  36. 1946 Sunday: Future drummer for the Los Angeles-based fun-rock-soul-jazz band, WAR[iv]—Harold Ray Brown—is born on this date in Long Beach, California.  Elsewhere- in the aftermath of World War II- the Nuremburg Trials of Nazi leaders continues with Reichsmarshall Hermann Goering- former chief of the Luftwaffe- on the stand.  He is a scrapper who won’t allow the Allied judges to badger him.  Still, we all know how this is going to end for this unrepentant Nazi.  Other Nazis in the box look up to him.  He is showing them the way.

  41. 1955 Thursday: The 89th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John Marshall Harlan II assumed his position on the nation’s high court on this date.  A Republican, President Dwight D. Eisenhower nominated Harlan to fill the seat of Associate Justice Robert H. Jackson’s seat.  He served from today until September 23, 1971.

  43. 1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Tibet in the advance of Chinese troops to take refuge in neighboring India.   The Chi-Coms claim that Tibet is their territory in the same way they claim Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao.  The U.S. should have nuked the Chi-Coms long ago when we had the opportunity; it’s a shame we failed to do what had to be done.
  44. 1960 Thursday: President Dwight D. Eisenhower forms an anti-Fidel Castro-exile army under the auspices of the CIA.  Communists in Cuba is not good and it’s clear that the U.S. failed to nip this one in the bud.  Soon, the Soviets will be building military bases on the island.  Not good.

  47. 1968 Sunday: A peaceful anti-Vietnam War protest in London was followed by a riot outside the U.S. Embassy; more than 200 people underwent arrest and over 80 people were arrested.   Why the Brits are crying is unclear; we supported them in their endeavors to crush the communists in Malaysia post-World War II just as we gave aid to the French fighting in Indochina.  Ingrates.
  48. 1969 Monday: Golda Meir becomes the fourth prime minister of Israel.  This woman would become a major wartime leader, devastating one Arab army after another.
  49. 1970 Tuesday: The United States cast its first veto in the U.N. Security Council by killing a resolution that would have condemned Britain for failure to use force to overthrow the white-ruled government of Rhodesia.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Army charged 14 officers with suppression of facts in the My Lai massacre case.

  59. 2000: In Uganda, a mass holocaust to rival that of the Reverend Jim Jones occurs in the country as 800-plus people die.  The Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God is deemed a mass murder and suicide, one orchestrated by leaders of the cult.  Ugandan law enforcement believe that the five main leaders of the group died in the fire that took the lives of many but then came to expect that at least one of them was in the wind- with the movement’s wealth.
  60. 2001 Saturday: OPEC announces major cuts in production, effective April 1- 4% or one million barrels per day.  Of course nations dependent upon this oil output are flabbergasted as gasoline prices will go UP.

  62. 2003 Monday: Edging to the brink of war, President George W. Bush gave Saddam Hussein 48 hours to leave his country.  However, Iraq rejected Bush’s ultimatum, saying that a U.S. attack to force Saddam from power would be a “grave mistake.”
  63. 2004 Wednesday: NASA’s Messenger became the first spacecraft to enter orbit around Mercury.  The probe took more than 270,000 pictures before it crashed into the surface of the planet on April 30, 2015.  Elsewhere, guests at the Mount Lebanon Hotel in Baghdad got more than they planned on when a car bomb piloted by some jihadists crashed into the place, blowing it sky-high.  In the blast, 17 were killed outright while another 45 or more suffered varying injuries.  Once again, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam is to blame.
  64. 2005 Thursday: The People’s Republic of China frees Uighur Muslim dissident and businesswoman Rebiya Kadeer on medical parole.  They probably decided that if they tortured this woman any longer, her heart would give out so the Chi-Coms most likely bowed to Western pressure.   Kadeer became a millionaire through her real estate holdings so it’s clear the Chi-Coms wanted to shake her down.
  65. 2006 Friday: Federal regulators reported the deaths of two women in addition to four others who had taken the abortion pill RU-486; Planned Parenthood- the notorious ‘baby chop shop’- said it would immediately stop disregarding the approved instructions for the use of the murderous drug.  Elsewhere, fashion designed Oleg Cassini died on Long Island, NY, at age 92.
  66. 2007 Saturday: Australian Prime Minister John Howard announces that Australia will keep its troops in Iraq until the Iraqi government is able to maintain order.   In other truly fascinating news, heavy metal band Iron Maiden[ix] becomes the first heavy metal band to tour India.  How about that?
  67. 2008 Monday: Senator Barack Obama goes to the microphones in Philadelphia to give a speech on race.  He is trying to tamp down concerns that he might be a racist.  No, not ‘our Obama.’  In other news, the Democratic Party of Florida abandons a plan to demand all mail-in ballots for the Democratic Primary Election.   Elsewhere, the Fed is blasted for choosing to bail out banks but not homeowners.  The housing crisis continues to worsen.
  68. 2009 Tuesday: Upset continues to grow over AIG executives going to get bonuses so the Democrat-controlled Congress is threatening to pass a bill by which they can slap hefty taxes on these bonuses.  Other companies that have gotten bailouts like Citigroup and Morgan Stanley are seeking ways they can hand out bonuses to their executives without everyone and his or her brother knowing.  They are trying to get in before the Congress can come after them.
  69. 2010 Wednesday: as the Obama administration continues trying to drum up votes with which to pass the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka the PPACA, aka the ACA, aka “Obamacare,” the White House gets a ‘win’ when two Democratic congressmen opposed to the bill for various reasons change their minds and will vote for it.  Dennis Kucinich of Ohio and Dan Kildee of Michigan announce they are ‘yes votes.’  Oh, good, we can hardly wait.
  70. 2011 Thursday: St. Patrick’s Day parades are now a worldwide event.  Meanwhile, Libya claims it will end fighting on Sunday for the jihadists to turn themselves in to the government.   Elsewhere, in a recent drone strike in Pakistan, the CIA blasts 40 Pakistani civilians to kingdom come and wounds God knows how many others.  WTF are you doing, President Obama?  Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled House passes a bill with which to defund the left-wing NPR.
  71. 2012 Saturday: Despite being under house arrest in Great Britain, Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, announces he will seek a seat in the senate of Australia.  Meanwhile, ISIS thugs in Damascus, Syria, attack two government offices killing several government employees and wounding others.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi Arabia is sending weapons to anti-Assad forces in Syria.   
  72. 2013 Sunday: Two members of Steubenville, Ohio’s celebrated high school football team were found guilty of raping a drunken 16-year-old girl and sentenced to at least a year in juvenile prison in a case that rocked the Rust Belt city of 18,000.  Elsewhere, the citizens of Wardak, Afghanistan, launch a large rally demanding ALL U.S. forces pull out of their country after numerous mishaps, drone strikes, and other problems.
  73. 2014 Monday: L’ Wren Scott, the 49-year-old model, designer, and longtime girlfriend of Rolling Stone[x] Mick Jagger is discovered dead in her apartment, a mystery to this day.  In other news, Russian President Vladimir Putin recognized Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula as an “independent and sovereign country,” ignoring sanctions imposed by President Barack Hussein Obama of the United States and various European countries.
  74. 2016 Thursday: Following the U.S. placing new sanctions on the ever-belligerent North Koreans over their nuclear weapons and missile programs, the People’s Republic of China inserts itself between their allies, the North Koreans, and their foes, the U.S. by opposing the unilateral actions of President Barack Hussein Obama.
  75. 2017 Friday: Donna Brazile, former head of the DNC, admits she gave Hillary Clinton copies of debate questions ahead of her debate with now-President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, in the Yemeni civil war, a U.S. Apache helicopter piloted by unknown individuals opens fire on a Somali refugee boat off the coast of the war-torn country killing at least 40 refugees and injuring another 35.  NO one knows who committed this dastardly act.
  76. 2018 Saturday: The National People’s Congress appoints Wang Qishan as vice president on this date.  In Iran, a close ally of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his former vice president is arrested for criticizing the Iranian judiciary.  No room for criticism in that country.
  77. 2019 Sunday: After tropical cyclone Idai roars through eastern Zimbabwe killing at least 259 people, the government declares a state of emergency.  Meanwhile, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announces she is running for president.  Wow.
  78. 2020 Tuesday: Much to the horror of New England Patriots fans, quarterback Tom Brady announces that after 20 years with the team, he is leaving the team to pursue opportunities with other teams.  COVID-19 update: as of today, there are 197,802 known cases of the virus what with 7,955 deaths and 81,691 recoveries.  Of course, the birthplace of the Wuhan Virus- communist China- leads the pack with 80,881 cases with Italy in second place what with 31,506 cases, and the Islamo-fascist republic of Iran in third place with 16,169 cases.  The United States is in eighth place with 6,223 cases with West Virginia being the ONLY state sans any reported cases.  Meanwhile, young people continue flocking to beaches across the country to celebrate Spring Break.  What a bunch of losers as many food service establishments across the country are shuttering their doors and sending employees home like many of us chef-authors here have done. 
  79. 2020 Tuesday A: In the three presidential primaries held today, candidate Joe Biden beat the hell out of his opponent Bernie Sanders winning Arizona, Florida, and Illinois.  Ohio postponed its primary until later in the year out of fear of the COVID-19 virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, the one the Chinese gave the world.  Meanwhile, speaking of the Hubei Hooey, Pfizer and Biontech sign deals to develop a vaccine for the Chi-Com Virus, the Chi-Vi, the ‘VID.  People do not believe it is possible but with President Donald J. Trump’s backing, anything is possible (although the Democrats will never admit it).
  80. 2021 Wednesday: DAY 57 of the Biden Regime.  What is this fossilized piece of wood and his Chi-Com masters up to today?  Stick around and discover the truth along with us.  We all want the same answers…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Once again, UFO found a way by which to come back, as they almost always do.  The new band featuring Phil Mogg (vocals), Pete Way (bass/vocals), Paul Raymond (guitars, keyboards, and vocals) joined forces with Jason Bonham (drums), and Vinnie Moore (guitars).  The resulting effort, “You Are Here,” came out on March 16, 2004 and blew the socks off fans around the world.  Say what you will, fans of modern bands typically dismiss the older folks as ‘dinosaurs’ and ‘fossils’ whereas folks our age- sixties and up- understand what REAL rock and roll is and it sure ain’t none of the goobers you see performing on Saturday Night Live or on late night TV.  We hope everyone will rush out and give this fine album a good listen and then consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.  You will be so glad you did- we guarantee it!

ENDNOTES:


[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[ii] We promoted the music of a group of interconnected venerable British rock bands as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iv] 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.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[vi] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too.

[vii] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[viii] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[ix] If we are still here in 20 years, we most likely will be doing Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Poison, and all the rest of the crazy bands but you can bet we will never do the music of Maroon Five.

[x] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.
