  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.

  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971 and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet 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). What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on October 22, 2021.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.

  56. 2017 Thursday: Bowing to public pressure from liberals and with threats of boycott by most major sports, North Carolina repeals its ‘controversial’ bathroom bill that restricted public bathrooms to specific genders- like it’s always been.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, a witness testifying before Congress says that ‘Vladimir Putin hired 1,000 people to create anti-Hillary Clinton news during the 2016 Presidential Election.’
  57. 2018 Friday: On this date, Palestinians go crazy as they commence their “Great March of Return,” the beginning of six long weeks of nonstop protests in which they demand- once again- the ‘right of return’ for ALL Palestinians and their descendants who walked away from the new state of Israel in 1948.  For their troubles, the first day’s casualty total (you knew this was coming) was 19 dead Palestinians and 1,416 wounded.  What a bunch of losers.
  58. 2019 Saturday: On today’s date, Slovakia elects its first female head of state, Zuzana Caputova.  Congratulations!   Meanwhile, Pope Francis arrives in Rabat, Morocco, his first ever pontifical visit to the Maghreb region of North Africa.  The pope and King Mohammed VI call for the protection of Jerusalem’s holy sites as they belong to multitudes of people and to the three primary monotheistic religions.  We agree.   Meanwhile, President Donald J.

  59. 2020 Monday: The Wuhan Virus continues causing problems around the planet as cases near 800,000 and deaths approach 39,000.  China continues claiming they are NOT responsible for this evil they have foisted upon the world, and many believe they colluded with the Democratic Party to launch yet another attempt to remove from office or take down altogether President Donald J. Trump.  Not going to happen, folks.   In New York City, the U.S. hospital ship Comfort arrives in New York City to care for patients that Mayor Bill Di Blasio will never send to it.  As for the Summer 2020 Olympics, postponed a week prior to later in the year are now postponed to June 23, 2021.
  60. 2021 Tuesday: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I– in the first outrageous news story of the day, a new report says that 2.64 million illegal aliens are receiving COVID-19 relief checks which is BULLS**T.  In the second outrageous tidbit of news today regarding the swamping of the border with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, we learn today that in San Diego County[ix], California, where our illustrious colleague, Chef Pedro Muñoz resides (and he confirms this), members of the California Teachers Association is visiting illegal alien holding pens where the river-swimming brats are being warehoused to instruct them while it’s still not flipping safe for American kids to attend classes in person more than 5-8 hours per week.   What else do we need to hear to know that the ruling class DETESTS the people they were elected to help?[x] 
  61. 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– In Texas, the Border Patrol continues reporting that they are arresting hundreds of known illegal alien criminals, thugs, rapists, and narcoterrorists.  We also hear that Russians and Iranians are slipping into the country.  These people should all be shot on sight, especially the latter.  Next, we hear that the nation’s glorious NEW BORDER CZAR, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has no plans on visiting the southern border.   Elsewhere, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district warns the ‘Biden administration’ to stop dumping illegal aliens in the Copper State.  Enough is flipping enough already there Joe Biden.    Meanwhile, Congressman Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district held a round-table discussion with members of his community as to how best they can protect their communities from being overrun with illegal aliens.[xi]  Finally, Lara Trump is hammering the Democrats over their hypocrisy on the border.
  62. 2021 Tuesday B: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district is demanding to know from the U.S. Department of Justice as to whether any prosecutions are going to fall atop the Antifa scum and their reign of terror in Portland, Oregon.  Crickets.   Next, former Congressman Ron Paul, R-TX, says ‘Joe Biden’s gun control policies are going to do nothing to help kids.’  Next, Joe Biden’s new chief of diversity and inclusion at U.S. Southern Command Richard Torres Estrada has had his reign cut short.  Due to a bunch of hateful, mean tweets such as comparing President Donald J. Trump with Adolf Hitler, he is being reassigned elsewhere.  Oh, boohoo for you.  LOL.  Moving on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki was stumped by a reporter’s question at the daily briefing: “Can you explain WHY Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris fly all over the place- unessential travel- when Americans cannot do the same?  Psaki had no answer (but generally, she seldom does.  Talk about an overrated individual).  Finally, ‘Pandering Joe’ Biden has announced some court picks among them the first Muslim jurist at the federal level.  Keep on pandering, Joe.  Can’t wait to see who the pro-jihadi is…
  63. 2021 Tuesday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Senator Pat Toomey, R-PA, is putting a Federal Reserve Bank branch on notice to stop overstepping its boundaries meaning stop pushing the liberal WOKE agenda.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump continues blasting Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci as without him, Operation Warp Speed would never have occurred.  The undynamic duo continue taking credit for what the 45th president did for the American people (for those who want to get the shots which we don’t).  Elsewhere, a Jackson County, Michigan, judge drops ‘terrorism charges’ against three patriotic Americans charged with the attempted kidnapping of Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI.  According to the judge, there has to be evidence of ‘committing terrorist acts’ which there aren’t.  They will still face trial on other crimes.   Finally, our esteemed Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has ordered the Department of Justice to begin investigations into ALL (the white) HATE CRIMES afflicting our nation.  Whoa.
  64. 2021 Tuesday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– as a 10th accuser represented by famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred blasts the corrupt, deviant New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, the cringing POS continues to claim that ‘grabbing and groping women is a cultural norm,’ that the ‘Gropin’ Love Gov’ meant nothing wrong by his actions.[xii]  He is sorry if ‘he offended anyone.’  Regarding another deviate, Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer Ghislaine Maxwell, she finds herself facing added charges, charges of corrupting underage 14-year-old girls.  You in trouble there, chickee.   Elsewhere- and we don’t understand this- Nike- the maker of Lil NAS X’s satanic tennis shoes is suing the rapper to remove the ‘human blood component’ in the shoes.  YOU make the shoes, stop making the crap and throw them on the bonfire.  Enough with satanic bulls*** already.  In other news, Dr. Nicholas Meriwether, Ph.D. of Ohio’s Shawnee State University has won a court case on appeal over his refusal to use tranny-friendly gender terms.  Good.  Tell the trannys- aka chicks with dicks- to shut up and grow up.
  65. 2021 Tuesday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– the World Health Organization’s boss Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- in the hip pocket of Comrade Xi Jinping- slams his own COVID-19 report and demands a further investigation into whether or not there was a leak of the Chi-Vi at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  This is strange.  Former S.C. governor and former U.N. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley says the ‘WHO COVID-19 report is nothing more than Chi-Com propaganda.’   In other heartwarming news (LOL), Google Maps will now direct its users (no longer us) to ‘eco-friendly routes.’  Are you going to direct El Jefe Climate Czar John F. Kerry to ‘eco-friendly routes?’  That will be the day.  Next, the Freedom Caucus is split on how to combat the “Chi-Com Joe” Biden agenda.  Folks, you do exactly what the Democrats do: court-shop and get one injunction after another slapped on every crap-ass issue the Biden Gang tries to stuff down our throats.
  66. 2021 Tuesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Mt. Rushmore is shut down and 400 households in the area are evacuated as out-of-control wildfires continue to rage.  Elsewhere, the Derek Chauvin murder trial continues.  The teen who shot the video of George Floyd’s death says that Mr. Floyd begged for his life.  Famed legal trial attorney and scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says, ‘thank God for cellphone cameras at least in this case.’  What we are curious of is the story we first heard last year shortly after the murder of Mr. Floyd was the connection between then-Officer Chauvin and Mr. Floyd who both worked security at a local nightclub, the El Nuevo Rodeo.[xiii]  When the story first hit, it opened a door that might show there was a personal issue between the two men that Officer Chauvin then acted upon which would possibly up the charges to first-degree murder but then…that case visited.   Meanwhile, leftist do what leftists do and following the new Georgia Elections Law, democratic-socialists are demanding that Major League Baseball and Professional Golf Association BOYCOTT the Peach State as well a third suit challenging the law was filed today.  My, my, my.  Finally, Philadelphia cops are searching for a POS shooter who shot and killed one person in a shopping mall.  Sounds rather personal.

  72. 2021 Tuesday L: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III– Former CBP head Mark Morgan says that more than 30,000 illegal aliens have been released into the United States on their own recognizance since January by the Biden administration.   In Texas, a facility designed to hold 250 illegal aliens is now holding more than 4,000 thanks to the fraudulent Biden-Harris administration.   Photos continue coming out via clandestine sources showing the cruel and inhumane treatment the illegals have brought upon themselves.  Repeatedly raped, beaten, traumatized, and molested on the journey here, they suffer more rape and enslavement once they manage to escape illegal holding pens.  The cartels keep them in bondage here.  People, everyone arm up while we still have the opportunity.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, is seeking information on the $87.9 million contract the federal government has made with hoteliers in the country so they can send excess illegal aliens to hotels.   What the f*** is going on?  Why do the Democratic-Socialists hate the American people as much as they do?   Finally, Sean Spicer asks WHY BORDER CZAR “Kooky Kamala” Harris HAS no border-specific meetings on her miniscule agenda?  Why?

[i] We promoted the music of the Moody Blues and of the band’s members beginning on Monday, 23-October-2017 through Sunday, 11-February-2018.  We definitely hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ii] We began promoting the music of Love, the famed Los Angeles, California, rock band on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  Please seek out the music of this awesome band.  This group was among the best of the 1960s.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Yardbirds- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds, themselves, on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through vocalist Paul Rodgers of both Free and Bad Company on Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope you will check them all out.

[iv] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[v] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[vii] We are not clear as to when- or ever- we will begin doing the music of the Ramones but we sure as heck we do sometime over the next 25 years.

[viii] We began promoting the music of this legendary American rock band- the Young Rascals- beginning on Sunday, 08-December-2013 through Saturday, 21-December-2013.  This band is one everyone who loves rock music must look into and enjoy.

[ix] In San Diego County, health authorities announced that dozens and dozens of fence-jumping illegal alien girls are all testing positive for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Not good which is why we encourage the sowing of minefields along the southern border replete with antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat obstacles as well as seeding the Rio Grande River with alligator pups, laying in foo gas pits, electrifying the fence where possible, and doing whatever else must be done to stop the horde flooding into our country.  At some point, when the administration realizes they have F***ED UP in a major way, like the Romans, we will have to wage war on the illegal aliens within our country of cease to exist.  PATRIOTS MUST HEAD TO THE BORDER TO STOP THE TIDAL WAVE OF THIRD WORLD FLOTSAM AND JETSAM…

[x] IF you ever sought to know how violent events such as the French Revolution, the Bolshevik Revolution, or the Spanish Revolution occurred- or the ensuing civil wars that followed the last two- this is a perfect example.  YOU spit in the faces of the people long enough, do not be surprised when they drag out the LEADERS, put them up against the wall and begin shooting them or sending them to the gallows or to the guillotine.  An inevitable flashpoint is coming and anyone who thinks that it’s not coming sadly is crazy.  The citizens of Paris had had enough and stormed the Bastille, the Russian soldier demoralized that his commanders frittered their lives away succumbed to the toxic siren’s song of Marxism, while in Spain, wealthy aristocratic landowners and an unsympathetic church drove the masses to go berserk.  In the inevitable after in Spain, it required a Fascist to save the country, El Caudillo Francisco Franco while in France, it required its own fascist leader, Napoleon Bonaparte.  Who will lead the American people against the communist thugs pissing all over us?

[xi] We would like to suggest to Blue Dog border Democrats such as Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, IF you want to stop the border from disappearing, it’s time you folks either threaten Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi with becoming Republicans or that you will vote with the GOP.  Let her make all the threats she wants, at some point, you guys must shake this old bag’s control of all things Democratic Party.

[xii] The 10th accuser is a woman of Italian ancestry and she says, ‘kissing and hugging people is Italian but ONLY FOR FAMILY and the Gropin’ Gov is NOT FAMILY.  We hope to see the Lov Gov wearing an orange jumpsuit soon.  Maybe even his brother, too.

  55. 2004 Monday: Terry Nichols went on trial for his life in the infamous Oklahoma City bombing.  Already serving a life sentence for his conviction on federal charges, a jury found him guilty of 161 state murder charges, but once again cheated death because the jury couldn’t agree on his sentence.
  56. 2005 Tuesday: Rod Price, the electric slide guitarist of the band Foghat[vi], died on this date in Wilton, New Hampshire, due to a heart attack suffered while falling down the stairs at his home.  He was 57 years-old.   This man made the slide guitar into a virtuoso instrument giving Foghat a sound that made them monsters of the world throughout much of the 1970s and into the early 1980s.  IF you haven’t heard this band yet, you must seek them out ASAP.
  57. 2006 Wednesday: The ETA—an armed Basque separatist group—declares a permanent ceasefire.  Elsewhere, U.S. Army personnel continue to be punished for mistreating Muslim POWs at the Abu Ghraib prison.  Sgt. Michael Smith, a military dog handler, had the misfortune of being photographed frightening jihadist prisoners with unmuzzled canines.  He received a six-month sentence.  Gee whiz.
  58. 2007 Thursday: As the Iraq War continues to drone on and on and on, the Out-of-Iraq Caucus in the U.S. Congress finds themselves worked into a corner.  They planned to vote against a $124 billion military funding bill that would send more money to both the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on the promise the country would find a way with which to remove the U.S. from these endless meatgrinder wars.  Good luck with that.
  59. 2008 Saturday: In Rome, an amazing incident occurs when Pope Benedict XVI baptizes Madgi Allam, the most well-known Muslim cleric in all of Italy.  Allam has decided to turn his back on Islam and become a Roman Catholic.  Will riots break out around the world?  Events such as this usually cause such mayhem.
  60. 2009 Sunday: After a prolonged period of unrest, Mt. Redoubt, an Alaskan volcano commences erupting.  Elsewhere, in the United States, newbie President Barack Hussein Obama is seeking a strategy with which to extradite the United States from the continuous war in Afghanistan.  Good luck with that, sir.  President Obama tells the American people that the Bush-Cheney policies have made the world less-safe.  We concur, the world is a much more dangerous place due to all these regime-change wars neocons love to launch.
  61. 2010 Monday: In a big to-do for the Obama administration, President Obama will be signing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA or more well-known ACA- into law.  The Republicans are preparing to file a bill with which to repeal it if it does become law, but this BS from the GOP would continue until well after Donald J. Trump became president in early 2017.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: Governor Dennis Daugaard, Republican -South Dakota, signs an abortion bill that requires women to wait 72 hours before undergoing the procedure and to receive counseling.  Meanwhile, Hall of Famer NFL player Lawrence Taylor pleads guilty to misdemeanor sexual assault and receives a sentence of six years-probation.

  64. 2013 Friday: The British Food Standards Agency reports a discovery in Lancashire of 100kg of horsemeat imported from Hungary labelled as beef.  Elsewhere, information is beginning to come out regarding the secret drone war the Obama administration has been running covertly.  Four Americans have been slain by CIA drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan and the American public is growing concerned.  What is the 44th president up to?  Didn’t he win a Nobel Peace Prize almost upon the day of his election?  Yikes.  Take it back, Nobel, take it back.
  65. 2014 Saturday: At Oso, Washington, 30 people die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, at Lake Albert, Uganda, a boat capsize kills at least 251 people.  Elsewhere, with Vladimir Putin formerly signing into law the act that allows Russia to rip the Crimea away from the Ukraine, the world is going berserk.  We shall see what we shall see.
  66. 2015 Sunday: Having discovered the remains of King Richard III of England, 1483-85, in the city of Leicester, the crown gives him a royal funeral procession to his place of burial at the Leicester Cathedral.  Elsewhere, it appears that civil war is looming in Yemen.  The United Nations reports the possibility which causes the United States to close a key base and begin pulling personnel out of the violent hellhole.  Meanwhile, one of the creators of the havoc in Yemen- Iran- is demanding an immediate end to ALL sanctions imposed upon their country if the U.S. and other nations trying to engineer a ‘deal’ with Tehran want to see it happen.
  67. 2016 Tuesday:  Jihadists in Brussels, Belgium have caused loads of trouble again as they attacked a subway station and an airport killing at least 31 people and injuring another 200 plus people.  The time is coming when permitting ‘armies’ of military age Muslim males from the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa must stop or Europe will be no more.  The authorities are out seeking this riffraff.   Elsewhere, Senator Ted Cruz says it’s ‘time we begin patrolling Muslim neighborhoods in the U.S. to prevent them from becoming radicalized.’  This of course raises the ire of liberals across the country.  God, forbid we do something to protect our country.  
  68. 2017 Wednesday: Original drummer for the East Coast rock band, Boston[vii]—Sib Hashian—drops dead while performing on a cruise ship in Nassau, Bahamas; he was age 67.  Elsewhere, the House of Representatives is preparing to vote on the future of the Affordable Care Act, one of the failed Obama era messes that Donald Trump promised to end on Day 1.  Across the nation, liberals are out running riot in the streets, screaming don’t take away our healthcare.  Wah, wah, wah, everyone receiving Obamacare is receiving it thanks to government subsidies which are bankrupting the government.  Obamacare MUST GO.  NOW.
  69. 2018 Thursday: According to new scientific research, the Great Floating Island of Garbage haunting the waters between California and Hawaii contains more than 1.8 trillion pieces of garbage and thanks to China, Russia, and the Third World continues expanding by the minute.  Meanwhile, in eastern China at Yancheng, a chemical Xiangshui plant explodes with such magnitude that it registers as an earthquake, killing at least 64 and at least- according to Chinese reporting 28 missing.  Wow.
  70. 2019 Friday: Rumors continue to abound that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, nicknamed the “Boy Scout,” will soon release his more than two-plus years witch hunt into all-things Russian collusion and President Donald J. Trump.  People who either helped initiate the potential coup or who have knowledge of the farce begin distancing themselves from the impending release of the final report.   Millions of Americans hope that when the report clears the president, that the people who launched the coup- Andrew McCabe, Rod J. Rosenstein, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page, and numerous others- including Barack Hussein Obama- will face justice. 
  71. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 continues crisscrossing the world with the death toll now sitting at 15,000 with loads more to follow.  Worldwide, there are at least 340,000 confirmed cases of the bat virus with several nations such as Italy feeling the brunt of the growing pandemic.  The Gaza Strip, Afghanistan, and Syria report their first cases while German Chancellor Angela Merkel goes into self-imposed quarantine following her personal physician testing positive for this evil crap.  The U.S. is trying to prevent foreign flights coming in so as to stop the spread of the virus but in some areas, particularly Democrat-controlled areas, they aren’t taking it seriously as they should.   In Japan, the Summer Olympics are up in the air what with some nations now saying they aren’t going to send athletes.
  72. 2021 Monday:  BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I– Despite a blackout on what is occurring on the U.S. southern border with Mexico, brave souls are releasing shocking of photos of illegal aliens and illegal alien brats crammed into sardine can-like holding facilities, sleeping on cement floors with foil blankets for protection.  Where is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka the Baby Evita, where is Rashida Tlaib, where is Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and all the rest of the blubbering leftists who care so much about illegal alien kids?  Nowhere.  Let the world see them for what they are- glib hypocritical POS.   Former Acting U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf says it’s NOT an ‘open border but a LAWLESS border now’ thanks to blundering Joe Biden’s horrible America-last immigration policies.
  73. 2021 Monday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– President Donald J. Trump says his administration handed Joe Biden a secure border.  Look at it now.   As the crisis continues growing exponentially worse by the hour, the 45th president blasted the enfeebled 46th president’s border policies as inhuman, cruel, and according to us, EVIL.   Speaking of the 46th disaster, he says he will go to the border when ‘he’s good and ready.’  Uh, okay.  The problem is, you WON’T know what you are looking at, Joe, you’ll think you’re at the zoo… Elsewhere, we learn that U.S. Customs and Border Patrol interactions with family units on the southern border are up by 188 percent and illegal alien brats by 96-percent.  Build the wall and deport them all.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Monday B: POLITICAL NEWS– Congressman Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district received an endorsement from President Donald J. Trump as he runs to unseat RINO Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, an extremely corrupt individual who colluded with Governor Brian Kemp and political hack Stacey Abrams to throw the 2020 Presidential Election to stumbling, bumbling old Joe Biden in the Peach State.  Even more embarrassing for Mr. Raffensperger is the fact that HIS county- Fulton County- banned him from serving as a delegate in any upcoming elections.  Ouch.  Congressman Hice thanks President Trump saying his endorsement has led to an overwhelming response in support.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump says that Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘is hanging by a thread in the upcoming battle to end the Senate filibuster rule.’  (Note- we also learn that dark money is funding efforts to end the filibuster rule).
  75. 2021 Monday C: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Pro-Death Joe Biden is facing a growing backlash from the Catholic (and other religious affiliations) over his rabid support of abortion at all stages of gestation and even after birth.  IF Pope Francis were not a liberal-socialist, some say, ‘communist,’ he would excommunicate Biden, his family, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and loads of other Pro-Death Democrats and liberals.  Pope Francis- do your job, excommunicate these Catholic-in-Name-only, aka CINO, abortion-loving losers.  NOW.  Next, Joe Biden (well, the voice in his ear) says he is going to move to bolster Obamacare prior to its upcoming 11th anniversary.  What a disaster.  Biden (the voice) also says that his administration must prepare to get $3 trillion in additional spending on the road NOW.
  76. 2021 Monday D: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Russia regrets the United States lack of support for public talks between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin.  Elsewhere, for the first time this year, Russian warplanes carried out airstrikes on rebel positions in northwestern Syria.  Blow those bastards to hell, boys!  Next, the U.S. sanctions two Chinese officials for their roles in repressing Uighur Muslims.   Speaking of the Chinese, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘we cannot reward communist China by allowing them to hold the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing.’  Numerous nations around the world are joining the movement to either boycott the games or to see them moved elsewhere. 
  77. 2021 Monday E: MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRES AND OTHER CRIME NEWS– A Chinese American group condemns, we repeat, condemns CRITICAL RACE THEORY as being the new form of Maoism.  How soon do we see Red Guards going door to door in the streets?  Instead of lamenting the dead in the Atlanta killings, the Democrats are using the dead to stir their evil-smelling pot of fecal matter to continue their race-baiting ways as well as to steal guns from the American people.  Speaking of the Massage Parlor Massacres, the feds say there is “NO EVIDENCE that the shooter’s crimes were racially motivated thus no federal hate crimes charges can be filed against the sex addict shooter.’  This of course drives all liberals insane.  Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO, says that the politization of the crimes is a ‘calculation’ on the part of the Democrats.   Speaking of crime, the judge in the Derek Chauvin trial has seated the 14th and final juror in the upcoming trial.   
  78. 2021 Monday F: SCOTUS NEWS– The John Roberts U.S. Supreme Court will weigh reinstating the Boston Marathon Bomber’s death sentence.  Folks- just execute this POS, he does not need to sit on death row for the next 40 years.  Next, the Supreme Court won’t take up the case about Facebook tracking its users.  Speaking of Facebook, they claim to have removed 1.3 billion false accounts between October to December of last year.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– The Los Angeles teachers’ union agrees to reopen schools sometime in April.  (Note- teachers have NO clue as to what is heading their way, the discipline problems are going to be off the charts.  We expect to see teachers and administrators assaulted, beaten, raped, and murdered because the young people with socialization skills are going to amped up more than anyone can comprehend.  It’s going to be ugly).  Elsewhere, Miami Beach, Florida, has had to slap on a curfew from 8:00 p.m. to sometime the next morning because of fights, havoc, and people crowding together.   Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and Elon Musk are arguing over wealth and how best to spend it.  Mr. Musk, whatever Bernie says, do the EXACT opposite.  Finally, newbie Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, is tying gun control together with voting rights.  (Note- Georgia- vote this POS out of office next year).   
  80. 2021 Monday H: AICPENDBLOG.COM ENDORSEMENT– We endorse former Assistant Administrator of the Small Business Administration Sery Kim to fill the open House seat in Texas’ 6th congressional district.  The Special General Election will occur on May 1, 2021.
  81. 2021 Monday I: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 123,516,699 confirmed cases, +552,287, 2,917,703, confirmed deaths, +7,956, and 69,975,879 confirmed recoveries, +327,920.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 30,054,603 confirmed cases, up 43,422 from yesterday’s reporting, 548,172 confirmed deaths, UP 718, and 116,975,502 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. 
  82. 2021 Monday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 219,704 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Centers for Disease Control says that California ranks 44th in Chi-Vi vaccine equity.  F**k equity, just distribute this crap to whomever wants it and for those that don’t, stop guilting them.  Meanwhile, AstraZeneca reports that U.S. data shows that their vaccine is 79-percent effective.  
  83. 2021 Monday J: 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: 3,643,252 confirmed cases, 57,679 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,834 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 357,443 confirmed cases, 5,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- U.S. Virgin Islands: currently, they have 2,767 confirmed cases, 25 confirmed deaths, and 2,653 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,672 confirmed cases, 6,102 confirmed deaths, and 807,341 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Sweden, home of pissed-off Greta Thunberg: 744,272 cases of the virus, 13,262 confirmed deaths but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  
  84. 2021 Monday K:   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,731.20, UP 103.23 points (+0.32%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,377.54, UP 162.31 points (+1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,940.59, UP 27.49 points (+0.70%).  The price of GOLD is $1,737.80 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.82 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.20%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,186.50 per troy oz, +2.50 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, 0.00 (-0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,186.50 per troy oz, -4.50 (-0.38%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.00 per troy oz, +45.00 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.19 per barrel, -0.40 (-0.61%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.57.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Bahraini Dinar, one greenback equals 0.38.  
  85. 2021 Monday L: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.597 in Hawaii, and $3.317 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,082,074,861,052 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  86. 2021 Monday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– George W. Bush political advisor Karl Rove is planning on holding a fund-raiser for politically dead man-walking Congressman Adam Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district.  That’s Karl Rove for you.  The guy is probably thinking he’s going to trot out Jeb Bush for another go in 2024.  One thing we can guarantee you, the era of voting for the lesser of two evils– meaning voting for a RINO instead of a Democrat has ended. If we’re going to go socialist, then we’re going to go socialist so what difference does it make if it’s next year or in three years or whatever?  NO MORE RINOs.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s national security adviser says it wasn’t a mistake to call Vladimir Putin a ‘killer.’  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the battle of mail-in ballots is raging in the Florida statehouse.  We don’t want mail-in ballots.   Next, the push to make the federal district of Washington, D.C., is beginning in the U.S. Senate.  Washington, D.C. was NEVER meant to be a state.   Finally, accusers of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo claim the Lov Gov is interfering in the harassment probe into his scandalous activities and actions.  The man is a groper.
  87. 2021 Monday N: CRIME NEWS– In Boulder, Colorado, a lone gunman carrying a rifle shot and killed 10 people- including a law enforcement office- at a King Soopers Grocery Store.  The shooting began around 2:30 P.M. and within minutes, a line of emergency vehicles and first responders ringed the store.  Law enforcement then went in and subdued the scumbag.  He’s in custody.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice has announced that it is considering hitting the Oath Keepers with SEDITION charges for their part in the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots.  The question is, WILL the Justice Department file similar charges against Antifa and Black Lives Matter as both groups infiltrated Trump supporters and engineered one of the largest FALSE FLAG operations in modern U.S. history.   
  88. 2021 Monday O: In other crazy news, RINO Bill Kristol, one of the all-time great phonies is supporting making Washington, D.C., a state while also advocating the invasion of Cuba and making that one a state, too.  This worthless phony has never seen a Third World War for which he didn’t advocate, and NO one should waste time listening to this dumb ass.  The time for jingoism ended when at the end of the Mexican-American War, the U.S. didn’t absorb the land between our southern border all the way down to Columbia just as after the Spanish-American War, we didn’t keep Cuba, too.  Next thing you know, Bill Kristol is going to want to make Afghanistan a U.S. commonwealth or at least a territory.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Stick around…

  67. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump fires his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson via a Tweet.   From the very beginning, Secretary Tillerson has been an impediment to the Trump agenda.   Tillerson fell for the bull crap the left spread about the events of Charlottesville and what exactly President Trump said regarding that mess. 
  68. 2019 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort receives and additional 43 months in jail on top of his 47 months for tax evasion and other Deep State-instigated and accused crimes.  Time for the president to pardon the guy.  Meanwhile, President Trump establishes the home of civil rights activists Medgar and Mylie Evers as a national monument in their hometown of Jackson, Mississippi.  Finally, POS California Governor Gavin Newsom- facing recall the following year- declares an indefinite moratorium on the death penalty claiming it discriminates against ‘marginalized communities.’
  69. 2020 Friday: Democrats and the Trump administration continue trying to hammer out a deal that will bring real relief to the American people combatting the Chinese-caused Wuhan Virus, aka COVID-19, which is sweeping the world.  The Democrats continue trying to expand the size of government and to stick in things like additional funding for abortion and other crazy things and the Trump administration and the GOP continue smacking them back and knocking them down.  What is up with the Democrats?  No one knows but they are a bunch of sick f**ks.  Meanwhile, President Trump addresses reporters at the White House and some of the assembled reporters seem eager to know if the president himself might be infected.  Horrible people.  Finally, the State Department ordered the Chinese ambassador to the United States to shut the hell up about trying to connect the U.S. Army to the outbreak of coronavirus that seemingly spilled out of that nation’s ONLY biowarfare lab.  The moratorium on air flights from Europe to the U.S. begins tonight at midnight.
  70. 2021 Saturday: DAY 53 of the BIDEN REGIME…these fools think they are going to confiscate our firearms.  They can try.  The DCCC is launching an ad blitz on television so the Biden administration can take a ‘victory lap’ as though somehow, THEY are the ones who created the vaccines and distributed them to the public.  In fact, they created a commercial showing every living ex-president and former first lady- with the exception of the Trumps!- going on about how miraculous it was we produced several COVID-19 vaccines.  Wow.  Talk about envy, jealousy, and hatred (and do you know what?  It won’t surprise us to see Jeb Bush throw his hat into the ring in 2023.  We agree with what the Reverend Jesse Jackson said several years back: ‘stay out’ d-bushes!’  Amen.).   Note- Joe Biden held a Democrats-only celebration of the ‘Chi-Vi Relief Bill’ in the White House Rose Garden yesterday which pissed off all the Republicans.
  71. 2021 Saturday A: The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service announce that the Biden COVID-19 relief checks are getting underway, perhaps as early as this weekend.  We recall Joe saying before he became president that everyone was going to get $2,000 checks and not $1,400 checks.  Then, they combined the Joe’s payments with President Trump’s payments which means we already got the $600 and now the $1,400 is on the way.  What a scam.  This is taxpayer money, so we are getting our own money back PLUS we’ll have to pay taxes on the money back to the government.  This is the Democratic Party’s infamous money-go-round.  Now, they’re talking about a $4 trillion infrastructure bill- who’s going to do the majority of the work?  Chi-Coms like they do the California High-Speed Rail boondoggle.  All a scam…
  72. 2021 Saturday B: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says, ‘the Dems are still seeking to take control of U.S. Elections.’  We know this, Mitch.  The question is this: HOW will they circumvent the U.S. Constitution and when H.R. 1 arrives at the U.S. Supreme Court under challenge, what will Chief Justice John Roberts do?  Meanwhile, Republican senators continue badgering their Democrat counterparts and the Biden administration as to when they are going to remove the fencing and razor wire surrounding the U.S. Capitol and White House and when the troops are going to go home?  That phony POS General Russell Honoré says the Capitol’s defense requires 2,500 troops at all times around it; yet only 500 have volunteered to remain?  We guess the ones wanting to return home must be the evil Trumpsters the general seeks to excise like cancer from the U.S. military.  He should remember this: there are more of us than there are of YOU,  general.
  73. 2021 Saturday C: Part of General Honoré’s plan is to remove guns from the American people.  The Democrat sponsored bill seeks to ban ALL military-style assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.  Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, claims the American people who already own such guns and accessories will be able to keep them, but we know that’s all bulls**t.  If they get this through without pushback, those ‘rights’ will vanish, too.  They also want background checks which they always demand but everyone who gets firearms- unless they’re thugs- undergoes background checks.  We prefer ‘somebody stole our guns.’  F**k anyone seeking to take away our 2nd amendment rights.
  74.  2021 Saturday D: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is backing a new process in his home state that would change how vacancies would be filled within the state if an opening arises.  It would strip the governor- who in this case happens to be Democrat Andy Beshear- of the ability to put a politician of his choice into a vacancy should one arise and permit the heavily GOP-controlled legislature in the driver’s seat.  We like this and we hope the bill becomes law.  The only reason Beshear won the seat back in 2018 is that everyone despised the Republican who held the seat- Matt Bevin- at the time.  
  75. 2021 Saturday E: The FCC designates FIVE Chi-Com tech companies as inimical to U.S. national security interests: Huawei, ZTE, Hytera Communications, Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology and Dahua Technology.  Each of these companies serves the Ministry of State Security in Beijing, monitoring the globe on behalf of the Chi-Com leadership.  Not good.  In other U.S. national security news, the southern border is still under assault by a tidal wave of illegal aliens from Central America as well as from across the world.  In all of 2019, the Trump administration had ONLY 2,600 illegal alien minors in custody while the Biden administration in just 53 days has 3,200 illegal aliens brats locked up in over-filled containers doing nothing.  Where are all the Democrats screaming and hollering about their mistreatment?  Where are the fake news reporters?  Why has the Biden administration forbidden cameras in the facilities?  We say load them onto buses and deport them NOW.   Even the Mexican president is blasting Joe Biden.  “Trump did a far better job dealing with illegal immigration” or words to that effect.
  76. 2021 Saturday F: The U.S. Department of Justice plans on filing more than 400 cases against the ‘insurrectionists’ that stormed the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.  We suspect the Antifa, and Black Lives Matter scum will somehow be released on their own recognizance whereas any true Trump supporters will remain in solitary confinement after the judge throws the book at them.  Such are fascist countries.   In other Joe Biden news, the National Parks Service BANS fireworks at Mt. Rushmore this year.   Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Gottlieb who led the FDA during the Trump administration says, “Americans will be gathering before the Fourth of July.”  Joe Biden had said earlier in the week that we would be ‘lucky’ if we could gather in small groups.  F**k that, too.  The country is getting ready to erupt.  Soon.
  77. 2021 Saturday G: In other news, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence announce the birth of their first grandchild.  Next, apparently the Portland, Oregon, cops took the fight to the Antifa human scum and kept them in check after a rough couple of days before.  We hope they begin cracking some skulls and run these scumbags out of the state.  Elsewhere, the Russian cops detain 200 people who were attending an opposition forum.  We learned yesterday that Putin’s No. 1 critic- Alexei Navalny- was moved from a prison near Moscow to an undisclosed black site.  These people want to see him freed.  Now, they probably are going to be joining him.
  78. 2021 Saturday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,469,346 confirmed cases, +445,489, 2,647,229, confirmed deaths, +8,342, and 67,621,472 confirmed recoveries, +252,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,633,697 confirmed cases, up 126,711 from yesterday’s reporting, 538,918 confirmed deaths, UP 3,160, and 115,379,301 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 210,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Senile Joe, in another 12 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the frigging ‘VID.
  79. 2021 Saturday I: 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: 3,616,872 confirmed cases, 55,336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 450 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 351,419 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- North Dakota, aka the Peace Garden State: currently, they have 100,973 confirmed cases, 1,488 confirmed deaths, and 98,797 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 817,799 confirmed cases, 5,988 confirmed deaths, and 776,099 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Peru, the home of the Incan Empire at least until Francisco Pizarro arrived on scene: 1,402,610 cases of the old Hubei Hooey, 48,664 confirmed deaths, and 1,308,175 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, why even bother- they’re liars. 
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.824 per gallon, $3.543 in Hawaii, and $3.252 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe, how about allowing fracking to continue as well as the Keystone XL Pipeline?  It would be beneficial for the people of this country.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,048,361,528,794 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: Here are the results for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3542 with a $28 million jackpot on the line: 03, 07, 08, 13, 21, and Mega 19.  Out of 117,459 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,731.  The 5/5 ticket was sold at La Positas Liquor & Market in Santa Barbara, CA 93105.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #828 with a $169 million jackpot up for grabs- 05, 11, 51, 56, 61, and Powerball 02.  Out of 76,264 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $10,854 apiece.
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Famed middleweight boxing champion “Marvelous Marvin” Hagler died from unexpected causes at age 66.  At one time, he would hold the WBA, WBC, IBF, and The Ring magazine middleweight boxing titles of the world while compiling a pro record of 67 fights, 62 wins (52 KOs), 3 losses, and 2 draws.
  83. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned with his third solo album, “American Son,” on June 17, 1980, which did much to boost the singer/musician’s solo career.  There is no questioning his unique powerful voice, Helm could belt them out with the best of them and sang many of the Band’s most notable songs.  Here- like the best of vocalists, he reinterprets the works of others and does one hell of a job.  Joining Levon Helm (drums, vocals, harmonicas) are Buddy Emmons (perhaps the foremost pedal steel guitarist of our day), Muscle Shoals, Alabama, session drummer Jerry Carrigan, and an ever-growing cast of numerous other talented musicians and vocalists to round out the sound.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do which is a great deal.  Seek it out now.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[iv] 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.

  47. 2010 Thursday: After suffering devastating losses in the mid-term elections, the Democrats are unclear as to the way forward. It is clear the American people are angry at the way the party went about pushing the Affordable Care Act through- even though a majority of Americans did not want socialized medicine- so now, the Dems must find people and groups to blame for their inadequacies.  Meanwhile, Starbucks announces that it’s going to expand by another 500 stores.

  51. 2014 Tuesday: Diagnosed with Ebola on October 23rd, Dr. Craig Spencer leaves the hospital, cured. However, he had caused numerous fears across the United States because he came home from Western Africa, traveled to a variety of places while experiencing symptoms, so there was some concern the man had spread the virus to people in America.    
  52. 2015 Wednesday: In Kabul, Afghanistan, after ISIS beheads 7 hostages, thousands take to the streets to protest the violence outside scumbags are causing their country. Meanwhile, Kurdish forces in Iraq launch a major offensive against ISIS holding positions on Mt. Sinjar.  Aided by U.S. warplanes, they make good headway against the terrorist scum.  Meanwhile, to the horror of the EU, Sweden enacts new border rules to halt the flow of Middle Eastern, North African, and Sub-Saharan African refugees trying to storm their country.    Light ‘em up already! 
  53. 2016 Friday: As anti-Trump protests continue, hundreds across the nation ALLEGE race-motivated or sexual persuasion and other minority attacks have occurred in the aftermath of Tuesday’s election. Wah, wah, wah, this is all bullshit but it’s the strategy the Democratic-Socialists are employing to tarnish the loss of Hillary Clinton to an outside.   Oh, speaking of Hillary, she is still moaning and groaning about the loss, saying she ‘was robbed.’
  54. 2017 Saturday: Embattled U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore pushes back on the women claiming he sexually assaulted them or molested them. In the era of #MeToo, crazed leftists are trying to tar and feather their enemies as well as those they fear.  Judge Moore drives a spike of fear in many leftists and so they seek to take him out.  Hell, even George Takei of Star Trek fame finds himself on the list of the accused when a former male model named Scott R. Brunton relates a story from 1981 when he was sharing a drink with the actor in his apartment how he began feeling groggy and disoriented and next thing he knew, the Asian-American actor had his pants down and was trying to go for it.  Say it ain’t so, Mr. Sulu!
  55. 2018 Sunday: News reports show that since the summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, things may have worsened as satellite images show at least 16 new missile bases around the crumbling country. While they may not have much food, they have a whole lotta nukes and would love to use them.   Meanwhile, at events to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Great War’s end- World War I- European leaders criticize President Donald J. Trump’s new nationalism. 
  56. 2019 Monday: Bolivian President Evo Morales flees his country and seeks asylum in Mexico.  A military coup overthrew the corrupt left-wing Marxist the previous day and after resigning the post, he quickly departed the country.   Elsewhere, on Capitol Hill, Democrats announce that televised impeachment hearings will begin tomorrow over the perfect phone call President Donald J. Trump had with new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier in the year.
  57. 2020 Wednesday: Here we are, Election Day PLUS EIGHT- the state of Alaska is now in the win column of President Donald J. Trump.  That win follows hot on the heels of President Trump winning North Carolina yesterday.  In Georgia, breaking news in the race between U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler and her Democratic opponent, Raphael Warnock have shown that Warnock is a committed hardcore communist who supports all communist regimes such as Cuba, Venezuela, and other socialist hellholes around the globe.  This POS cannot win a seat in the U.S. Senate.   Speaking of the Peach State, state GOP leaders call for a comprehensive investigation into rampant voter fraud within their state.  We suspect that failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a big hand in the electoral shenanigans occurring in that DEEP RED STATE; look to her for answers.  Moreover, we think Senator David Purdue will win his run-off against pajama boy Jon Ossoff who has run before and lost.  Make sure ALL legal votes are tabulated. 
  58. 2020 Wednesday A: Yet another Democrat-held House seat is lost- thanks mostly to Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, AOC, and her whack-job Squad- as Democrat Harley Rouda who won in 2018 concedes to Asian-American Republican woman Michelle Steel. Steel won California’s 48th House District seat easily and although the Democrat clung to hopes that he might pull it out at the last moment, no one could find boxes of uncounted ballots in the trunks of Democratic staffers’ cars.   Gee whiz look harder…speaking of the Golden State, Proposition 15, a ballot proposition that would allow Democrats to raise taxes on virtually everything goes down in flames.  Also in California, Gavin Newsom’s oppressive authoritarian government is thinking of locking the state down once again, ostensibly over new cases of the Wuhan Flu.
  59. 2020 Wednesday B: Suddenly, the (Fake) News Media is crying about limited access to ‘President-elect’ Joe Biden.  The man stumbles out to the banks of microphones, mumbles a few words, looks right, and left to his handlers, and then bumbles off behind the curtains.  This is the senile POS YOU f**king Democrats and RINOS want to see in the White House.  WTF is wrong with you?  Meanwhile, as the U.S. Senate prepares to grill Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey over collusion to influence and throw elections to Democrats, the Biden campaign announces it’s going to have bigwigs from Google, Amazon.com, and Uber in the White House helping “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Yikes, the police state’s monitoring apparatus is being assembled before our eyes.     
  60. 2020 Wednesday C: We learn that the Pfizer COVID-19, aka the Chi-Com Virus, aka the Chi-Vi, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu is 90-percent or more effective and requires a two-shot dosage. Liberal Democrats are already talking stupid saying, ‘the United States should make the vaccine available to Third World s—hole countries first and then when it’s been given to the rest of the world, given to the American people.’  Shut up, you numb-nuts idiots, shut the hell up!
  61. 2020 Wednesday D: In the Pacific, Typhoon Vamco is preparing to slam into Luzon Island in the Philippines.  Citizens are being asked to flee coastal areas for their own protection.  Elsewhere, Australian Federal Police- the AFP- announce the arrests of 14 pedophiles in an ongoing child sex-trafficking and abuse scheme and have alerted other nations around the globe of their citizens who might be involved in this despicable ring of predators.  Lock ‘em up- for good. Meanwhile, riots continue from last night in Peru following yesterday’s impeachment and removal of President Martin Vizcarra over claims of ‘corruption’ from years ago.  The government hurriedly swears in Manuel Merino as the nation’s new president.   Finally, in Puerto Rico, election workers discover 180 BOXES FILLED WITH UNOPENED BALLOTS.  Sure, of course they did, and the Democrats expect us to believe everything is on the up-and-up.  Look- Joe Biden is NEVER going to be president, not now, not ever.      
  62. 2020 Wednesday E: CURRENT Electoral College count as projected by Newsmax shows 268 for President Donald J. Trump and 253 for “Pro-China Joe” Biden. More information continues coming to light that demonstrates the Dominion voting machines and systems used across the country are open to easy hacking which explains WHY- when coupled with Democratic Party operatives working on the ground to steal the election says we are witnessing one of the greatest election thefts in the history of the planet.  JOE BIDEN IS NOT OUR PRESIDENT AND HE WILL NEVER BE OUR PRESIDENT AND BY THE TIME THIS THING IS DONE, HE AND HIS FAMILY WILL BE ON TRIAL FOR TREASON. NOW we know WHY “Pro-China Joe” Biden was in his basement, the Chi-Coms via the Canadians had the FIX in for him.     
  63. 2020 Wednesday F: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 51,957,458 confirmed cases, UP by 682,861 cases, 1,281,309 confirmed deaths, UP by 12,110 deaths, and 33,785,432 confirmed recoveries, UP by 384,584 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 10,460,302 confirmed cases, UP by 148,941 new cases, 244,421 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,485 new deaths, and 5,830,401 confirmed recoveries, UP by 25,753 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 321,235 confirmed cases, 2,699 confirmed deaths, and 310,061 confirmed recoveries. 
  64. 2020 Wednesday G: 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: 996,903 confirmed cases, 18,083 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,193 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 126,822 confirmed cases, 2,595 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced 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, Pennsylvania, the home of VOTER THEFT AND FRAUD: 248,144 confirmed number of cases, 9,217 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Tom Wolf for concealing the number of recoveries- yet another left-wing liberal POS politician.   
  65. 2020 Wednesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,397.63, DOWN 23.97 points (-0.79%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,786.43, UP 232.57 points (+2.01%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,572.66, UP 27.13 points (+0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,865.40 per troy oz., +3.80 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $24.34 per troy ounce, +0.73 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $869.50 per troy oz, +1.40 (+0.16%) while the price of COPPER is $3.13 per pound, -0.002 (-0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,316.80 per troy oz, -154.60 (-6.26%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.76 per barrel, +0.31 (+0.75%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.62 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.45.
  66. 2020 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3507 with a $25 million jackpot on the line: 06, 07, 11, 29, 38, and Mega 23. The highest winner was one person with FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $34,183.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #793 with a jackpot of $152 million at stake: 13, 15, 17, 45, 63, and Powerball 13.  Highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,314 apiece.
  67. 2021 Thursday: Stick around to discover whatever the heck is going on today…

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We promoted the music of New York City’s very own Vanilla Fudge, beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  You definitely will want to check them out so please, do so now.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012.  We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We hope to begin promoting the music of the Allman Brothers Band and their spin-off projects sometime within the next eight years.  We hope you will be here when we do because they are a band worthy of investigation by the readership- you will be glad you did.

[vii] So that people understand their history, the People’s Republic of China is the PHONY China, the government of Taiwan, aka the Republic of China, aka Nationalist China- is the legitimate ruler of ALL of China, the mainland, the islands, you name it, they own it.  They are free people whereas the mainland is a fascist-totalitarian state the represses human freedoms and imprisons millions of others.  FREE Tibet!  FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Macau!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Mainland China!  FREE Uighur Muslims!  Return to Two-China Policy, recognize Taiwan as the legitimate China.  Period.

James Crowley, the arresting officer, for “a beer here in the White House,” the so-called “Beer Summit.”  This would become the norm for the Obama administration as he inserted himself into every racial incident over the course of his eight years in office, of which there would be many.

  52. 2012 Tuesday: Vice-President John Dramani Mahama becomes President of Ghana after President John Atta Mills, dies.  Elsewhere, USA Today reports the discovery of four barrels containing 248 human fetuses in the Sverdlovsk Oblast region.  An abortionist run amok?

  54. 2014 Thursday:  Arseny Yatseniuk, prime minister of Ukraine, submits his resignation in frustration over inaction of the parliament to address energy needs and military funding.  Meanwhile, a convoy carrying prisoners in northern Iraq comes under attack by jihadist thugs.  In the ensuing melee, 52 prisoners and eight Iraq government guards are killed and loads of others wounded. 
  55. 2015 Friday: After two researchers hack wirelessly into a Fiat-Chrysler automobile, 10 miles away, which enabled them to control the brakes and steering, the auto company recalls 1.4 million vehicles.  This ‘hack’ causes numerous other automakers concern that the same thing can happen to their automobiles.  Meanwhile, U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama[viii] returns to his home country of Kenya to begin a historic two-day visit.

  57. 2017 Monday: In a speech to a national Boy Scout gathering in West Virginia, President Donald J. Trump railed against his enemies and promoted his political agenda, bringing an angry reaction from some parents and former Scouts from both parties.  Oh, boo f**king hoo.  Democrats always attack their enemies, whether from the pulpits of black churches, in schools, in speeches, and everywhere else they can.  What a load of crap.
  58. 2018 Tuesday: Near Athens, Greece, swift-moving wildfires, blamed on out of control global warming, continue wreaking havoc across the region killing 91, injuring 104, and causing another 600 to flee into the water being rescued by boats.   Meanwhile, following a drug overdose, singer Demi Lovato[ix] finds herself in the hospital.  Elsewhere, the Syrians are down a jet after one crossed into Israeli-controlled Golan Heights and the Israeli Defense Force shot it down.  
  59. 2019 Wednesday: Senile Special Counsel reports to the U.S. Senate that ‘President Donald J. Trump was NOT cleared of obstruction of justice charges and reiterates that Russia did indeed interfere in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.’  Millions of Americans find it both shameful and personally embarrassing that the Democrats continue trotting this old fogey out to continue trying to tarnish the 45th president.  Send the old man to a rest home already.   Meanwhile, Europe is best with its hottest ever recorded temperatures causing Greta Thunberg to rush into the bunker.  In Germany, thermometers hit 104.9° F and in the Netherlands, temps hit 102.5° F which is a typical summer’s day in California.  Ah, well, we understand their anguish because we have air conditioning and they mostly don’t.  No wonder Europeans hate America.
  60. 2020 Friday: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,628,936 confirmed cases, UP by 310,939 cases, 636,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,410 deaths, and 8.917,141 confirmed recoveries, UP by 195,726 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,179,560 confirmed cases, UP by 79,759 new cases, 147,534 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,239 new deaths, and 1,252,170 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,537 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  61. 2020 Friday A: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 435,334 confirmed cases, UP 7,718, 8,186 confirmed deaths, UP by 159, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,490 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,125 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 50,009 confirmed cases, 1,482 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  62. 2020 Friday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,469.89, DOWN 182.44 points (-0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,363.18, DOWN 98.24 points (-0.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,215.63, DOWN 20.03 points (-0.62%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.30 per troy oz., +2.80 (+0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $22.98 per troy ounce, +0.125 (+0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $955.40 per troy oz, -1.00 (-0.10) while the price of COPPER is $2.89 per pound, +0.002 (+0.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.34 per barrel, +0.05 (+0.12%).
  63. 2020 Friday C: President Donald J. Trump signed four executive orders designed to lower drug prices for all Americans.  As things have stood for decades, Americans are screwed on health care costs because allied and other nations enjoy cheaper, more reasonable costs for their prescription drugs.  The first order would permit importation of  medications from countries where the costs are more reasonable and realistic.  A nation such as Canada would be among the prime countries of export.  Another executive order removes the huge profits wholesalers enjoy- so-called middlemen- by slashing them to much more reasonable amounts.  The third order would cut the costs of insulin while the fourth would force the federal government to buy drugs for Medicare at the lower costs they are in other countries.  Now, how about allowing ALL health care providers to compete in every state as well as to offer a wider variety of plans addressing all needs of all Americans?  That would be amazing.  
  64. 2020 Friday D: Communist China orders the U.S. to close its consulate in Chengdu as retaliation for the U.S. order to them to close their spy hub in Houston.  The Chin swear they are not going to leave the Houston, Texas, consulate but they need to get their s**t and get the hell out of the country.  All U.S. personnel in communist China should come home…NOW.
  65. 2021 Saturday: As you know, we never wish negative on anyone, as you know, we are rooting for Joe Biden to wake up from his senility and to begin doing the work of the American people rather than talking crazy about white supremacism, racism, and the cops.  We would like to see the ‘Joe of Old’ and not this stooge of Xi Jinping ransacking the country.  We can find out together- Chef Charles.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

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

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

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

[viii] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

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

  65. 2019 Sunday: Due to major flooding down the Mississippi River, the state of Mississippi closes its beaches due to a subsequent toxic algae bloom.  Stuff happens.  Meanwhile, in the Ghazni region in Afghanistan, the Taliban- not to be outdone by ISIS who carried out an attack in Mozambique the day before carrying out a suicide car bombing in which, they deliver- kicking and screaming- 14 people to meet with Allah sooner than any of them planned while leaving another 200 in varying states of wishing they could visit with ‘Loving’ Allah.  What the hell is wrong with these people?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Jethro Tull is not what one might think according to its title: “Roots to Branches,” (September 12, 1995.  One might think that the influences that led to Jethro Tull’s formation, the band itself, and then the various offshoots such as Blodwyn Pig, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Martin Barre would be here but oh, no- this is a NEW studio effort, the 19th to be precise.  The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Steve Bailey and Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention), Andy Giddings (keyboards), and Doane Perry (drums and percussion),  As usual, the band delivers a fine performance which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your listening pleasure every day.

Trump from today until July 15, 2019.  A so-called Republican, he would become the 27th U.S. secretary of defense on July 23 and would serve in this position until President Trump fired his worthless, traitorous butt on November 09, 2020.

  74. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Kung Flu stats for the world today: 9,237,691 confirmed cases, 476,911 confirmed deaths, and 4,613,425 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,425,361 confirmed cases, 123,726 confirmed deaths, and 746,563 confirmed recoveries.  Next, 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, the NOT-so-Golden State first: 190,222 confirmed cases, 5,632 confirmed deaths, and as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 819 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 673 confirmed recoveries.  Lastly, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,826 confirmed cases, 1,293 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  For the fun of it, let’s look at the numbers for Michigan: 68,555 confirmed cases, 6,114 confirmed deaths, but sadly, Napoleonic Governor Gretchen Whitmer WON’T release the number of confirmed recoveries.
  75. 2020 Wednesday B: Sadly, there was a bad day on Wall Street.  Here are the numbers for the DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,445.94, DOWN 710.16 points (2.73%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 9,907.17, DOWN 222.20 points (2.19%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,050.33, DOWN 80.96 points (2.59%).  Finally, President Donald J. Trump announces he will sign an executive order that will forbid the desecration of federal monuments or memorials with the possibility of 10 years in federal prison.  We have seen uncontrolled mobs, filled with communists, and funded by the Chinese Communist Party (or so we believe) that the minute a horrible crime like the slaying of George Floyd occurs, take to the streets across the nation destroying everything in their path as though they were reincarnations of Mao Zedong’s Red Guards.  Sign it, Mr. President, sign it, and let’s see this scum go to PRISON for good.
  76. 2021 Thursday: The Joe Biden regime continues to stumble along, looking for white supremacists wherever they can find them even though none exist and IF they did exist, they would be among the Democrats as that is who fleshed out the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan.  Still, all components of the Executive and Legislative branches continue beating the drums seeking them out wherever they can find them so they can punish them.  How soon before drooling Joe Biden requests the Chi-Coms send him some troops so he can maintain order in the streets?

Elsewhere, in Dien Bien Phu, General de Castries informs Hanoi that the end is coming soon while Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais holds a council with his officers chosen to lead Albatross if indeed they thought they would be able to break out and head due south to what they hoped might be rescue. The officers to a man said they were not leaving behind anyone so the decision was made to stay and to fight to the end. This information was forwarded to General de Castries who informed his superiors in Hanoi that NO breakout would occur. Later in the day, after all artillery and mortar rounds were fired, a deathly pall settled over the entire valley. The Battle of Dien Bien Phu just…stopped.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger released its next album, “Badfinger,” an album originally entitled, “For Love of Money” but which was nixed by their new label, came out on February 21, 1974.  Once again, the lineup was the same, featuring Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  Sadly, the magic of the OLD DAYS was gone because when things were good at Apple Records, they were genuinely GREAT whereas now, Badfinger was just another working band struggling to sell records in evolving times.  Still, they were a brilliant live act as well as phenomenal songwriters so what the heck folks, seek this one out and give it a good listen- we think you will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Chrysalis/EMI released another ‘best of’ compilation for the British rock band, UFO, on April 15, 2008, the acclaimed “The Best of UFO.”  This excellent effort contains 19 of the band’s best songs running the gamut from the early 1970s into the 1980s.  You have a variety of lineups here and get the crème de la crème of this lesser-known but amazingly great British rock band.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your listening day.  We think you will be extremely glad that you did…
