Currently, Joe is shy 180,827 deaths.   Now that the CDC says it’s ‘okay’ for kids aged 12-15 to get the shots, the Biden regime is urging parents to rush their children to the nearest drug store to get their immunizations for the Bat Fu Yuk out of Wuhan, communist China.    
  66. 2021 Wednesday 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: 3,763,165 confirmed cases, 62,463 confirmed deaths, and 2,006,829 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,278,549 confirmed cases, 35,897 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,556 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,376 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 420,192 confirmed cases, 5,663 confirmed deaths, and 203,994 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Military: they have 291,757 confirmed cases, 348 confirmed deaths, and 278,457 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  69. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.112 per gallon, $2.886 in Florida, $3.840 in Hawaii, and $3.522 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.820.  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- Egypt: $2.114 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,278,809,428,671 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 50 for ‘Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the border.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues the so-called ‘controversial’ Title 42 implemented by President Donald J. Trump back in March 2020 to close the southern border over Bat Fu Yuk concerns to all but the most essential travel.  People are asking where “Kooky Kamala” stands on the Biden regime continuing the Trump policy?  (Note- we all believe that the border remains wide open and that armies of illegal aliens continue pouring across it which is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, lining the border with minefields, laying in foo gas pits, building anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, and \anti-boat obstacles,  as well as to station fast-response units along the border.  We also believe that U.S. Special Forces MUST carry out targeted assassinations of human traffickers, smugglers, and other criminals operating along our southern border).  (Additional note- NO matter what these lying Biden regime officials say, people are still flooding across the southern border.  Period.  In April, more than 178,000 illegals were apprehended crossing the border while 6,000 illegal aliens per day are being released into the interior of the country.  Hunting licenses anyone?).[xxi]
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fighting between the Israelis and the human fecal matter in Gaza continues, thanks to the Biden regime sending billions to the Iranians and millions to the Palestinian terrorists.  Missiles are crisscrossing the border with at least 55 dead, most of whom are Palestinians.[xxii]  The Israelis have launched targeted missile strikes on the Islamic National Bank and the Finance Ministry in Gaza leveling both buildings to the ground.  Speaking of the Iranians, so-called ‘Climate Czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry swore today that he NEVER informed the Iranians of Israeli covert ops in Syria.  The Iranians claim otherwise.  Still, the Biden regime is sending a flunky from the U.S. State Department to broker some sort of peace deal between the warring sides.  Good luck.  (Note- at least befuddled old Joe says that ‘Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.  Exceptionally good, Joe, exceptionally good).
  72. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Joe Biden’s erratic policies according to a new report are giving the Chi-Coms the ‘edge’ over the United States.  We concur.  In another surprise news, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is sanctioning a Chi-Com official, Yu Hui, who USED to hold office that allowed him to persecute the Falun Gong and other religious minorities.  Wow.  Next, Secretary Blinken stressed ‘U.S. resolve’ to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  We bet Mr. Lavrov was trembling in his shoes.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– A new report says that thanks to the Chi-Coms and their release of the ‘VID around the world and to the United States, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. went back up in 2020.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is raising questions about events that have become commonplace during the China Virus pandemic such as lockdowns and restrictions, especially on religious liberties.  Elsewhere, a panel agreed that the WHO- the World Health Organization- should have greater latitude in investigating the origins of pandemics.  Currently, the WHO is in the pocket of the Beijing Bullies.  Moving on, the Buckeye State is giving vaccinated citizens the opportunity to win a lottery of $1 million.  They hope everyone will rush out to get the vaccine.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– White House reporters are lambasting the Biden regime over its lack of transparency.  Dumb asses, listen up!  First, Joe Biden can only get it together once or twice a week.  The man is senile.  Second, what you see is a continuation of the Obama-Biden regime that shut out the news media, conducted its own in-house photography sessions, and even spied and jailed reporters.  YOU OWN THIS.  They are unhappy that the White House comm team edits all quotes before they go to press.  Wow.  Sounds like Joseph Goebbels is somewhere behind the scenes…Elsewhere, 120 former U.S. military and Department of Defense officials are warning about the peril our country faces as well as that from Joe Biden’s mental fitness (or lack of it).
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Biden regime is going to provide federal COVID-19 relief aid to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, Joe Biden is going full-blown Cloward and Piven by pushing his $4.1 trillion spending bill.  He said to the BIG FOUR House and Senate leaders- Kevin McCarthy and “Cocaine  Mitch” McConnell on the right side of the aisle and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- that all he has to do is ‘to snap his (flaccid) fingers and so it shall be.’  Whoa, Joe, whoa. The GOP leaders told ‘Forgetful Joe’ moments later that ‘raising taxes on the American people is a nonstarter.’  
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  According to Newsmax, prosecutors in the Derek Chauvin case asked for an ‘upward departure’ which means that they want Chauvin to get more time than he originally would have due to the fact that he abused his power.  The judge in the case agreed and made a ruling that will allow the sentence to become harsher both for him and the other three officers awaiting trial.   Meanwhile, the POS shooter who opened up in Times Square, New York City, a few days ago and shot three people including a young child was apprehended down in Florida. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Last night, she was running her mouth and today, she is still running her mouth.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, was voted out as House GOP conference chair.  She went to the mics after being humiliated and said she ‘will work to make sure that President Donald J. Trump NEVER gets close to the White House ever again.’  WTF is wrong with you, Liz?  Just cross over to the Democrat side of the aisle, you and your father were NEVER flipping Republicans, you frigging moron.[xxiii]  Ret. Col. Denton Knapp says, ‘Cheney’s ouster was justified.’  Correct.  She is not a team player.  However, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the ‘House GOP will advance with a unified conservative vision’ as the real battle is winning the House (and Senate) back in 2022.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– Yet another Democrat domino topples, this time new tax records show that a former staffer for Senator Dianne “The Disoriented” Feinstein- Daniel Jones who runs the ultra-left-wing, pro-Marxist TDIP, aka the Democracy Integrity Project, colluded with George Soros, the globalist former Nazi now a pro-communist scumbag to fund the so-called ‘Steele Dossier,’ the phony document with which the Democrats went after President Donald J. Trump.  It is amazing as to how as time passes; more information comes to light that continues to show just what an evil, bogus sham investigation the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert S. Mueller III was.  NOTHING BUT CRAP.  Meanwhile, Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, considered to be most at risk in next year’s elections, blasts the Biden regime’s economic policies as being bad for the Granite State.  Wise up, Joe.  Even members of your party are preparing to swim against the current.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Two far-left Democratic-Socialist senators, “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, Hawaii, and “Creepy Cory” Booker, New Jersey, are planning to set up a ‘new caucus’ in the haloed halls of Congress (yeah, right), the BIPOC- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color caucus.  Wow.  Big deal.  ONLY Democrats who are ‘black, indigenous, and people of color’ will qualify while Republicans who identify with those same groups will be kept at arm’s length as though they have B.O.  What a load of crap.  Still, look at the two losers setting it up and we mean LOSERS, with a capital “L.”  Elsewhere, H.R. 1 is stuck in a Senate committee.  We hope it remains there as though it’s in a tar pit.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

As we said yesterday, manager and father Murray Wilson was keeping the Beach Boys at a frenetic pace.  The band’s fourth album, “Little Deuce Coupe,” came out on October 07, 1963, and was a repackaging of sorts of the band’s hot rod songs plus loads of other new tunes.  Brian Wilson was writing at a lightning pace and the tunes were all great to be sure.  Featured here are “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Be True to Your School,” “Shut Down,” “Spirit of America,” and “A Young Man is Gone.”  The band features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and Alan Jardine (rhythm guitar and vocals), a neighborhood friend like Marks.  This is a wonderful album one we know everyone is going to enjoy so zip on out and add this one to your collection- we think you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[iv] 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.

[v] 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.

[vi] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

[vii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[viii] See earlier footnote.

[ix] In late 2019- early 2020, the World Health Organization says the COVID-19 strain of this Chinese-engineered POS disease was NOT transmissible between human beings…until it was.

[x] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xxi] Late in the afternoon- and this is a good one- Newsmax ran a Chiron crawl that said, “The Biden administration, (i.e., the regime), is ordering construction on the border wall to begin again.”  Say what?  We cannot believe that mixed-up, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, drooling old Joe Biden has reordered construction on the wall again.  Say what?

[xxii] Interestingly enough, while lunatic members among the House Democrats continue calling for an end of Israel, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi came out and blasted Hamas, the POS terrorist organization that needs to be eliminated from the face of the planet.  Wow.  Didn’t know “Mumbles” had it in her; still, once the AOC Suicide Squad begins tuning “Mumbles” up, she may very well reverse her statement.

[xxiii] President Donald J. Trump released a statement today in which he said he expects to see Liz Cheney become the next paid commentator on CNN or MSNBC.  She will be removed from office in the primary race next year in Wyoming.

[xxiv] Not sure when we will do the music of Jay-Z.

[xxv] We hope to do the music of the Go-Gos one day.  They were awesome.

[xxvi] We hope to do the Foo Fighters when we do Soundgarden, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and maybe even Korn.

[xxvii] Not sure as to when we will do Carole King?  Perhaps in 20 years or so.

[xxviii] We definitely want to do the music of Todd Rundgren and Nazz as well as Aerosmith.

[xxix] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner one day. Maybe she will be included as a solo act.

[xxx] For the hell of it, we may be doing the music of the Monkees sooner- these guys deserve it.

  69. 2019 Thursday: After 100-plus migrants seized control of a merchantmen plying the waters off the coast of Libya- and which then took control of the vessel and ordered its captain and crew to take them to Malta- the Maltese navy arrived on scene, stormed the vessel, freed its crew, and took the pirates into custody.  The ship then went onto Malta where it docked, and the scumbag refugees were trotted off to holding cells.  We guess a prison on Malta beats living in Libya without Moammar Gaddafi in charge.  
  70. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus continues plaguing the world what with confirmed global cases hitting 664,924 with a total of 30,848 deaths and 140,222 recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the United States there are a total of 124,665 confirmed cases with 2,026 deaths and approximately 1,072 recoveries (although the recovery number seems a bit low).  Meanwhile, in Communist China, the authorities have re-opened parts of the epicenter of the virus- Wuhan- after two months of intense isolation including the nailing in of the afflicted into their apartments.
  71. 2021 Sunday: FOREIGN NEWS I- Some nut case runs amok in a library in Vancouver, Canada today stabbing seven people.  One person is dead, and six others wounded.  Stick around for updates.  Meanwhile, tensions continue to rise in Myanmar as the military junta goes berserk during their annual military parade in their capital city of Naypyidaw.  They murdered at least 100 people across the country yesterday and continue their rampage today.  Since the military coup took charge, more than 420 brave souls have been slain by the left-wing thugs.
  72. 2021 Sunday A: FOREIGN NEWS II- Meanwhile, a pair of jihadists attempt to storm a Roman Catholic Church but end up detonating their suicide bombs outside the main entrance injuring at least 14 people.  The Indonesian jihad attack occurred on the island of Sulawesi.   One must love the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Elsewhere, for the second year in a row- thanks to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu Pandemic- Pope Francis delivered Palm Sunday services to a near-empty St. Peter’s Basilica.  Finally, two additional tugboats are heading to the Suez Canal to try to budge the quarter-mile-long container ship blocking canal traffic.  Economic losses are estimated to be around $9 billion per day in shipped goods reaching their destinations.
  73. 2021 Sunday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE- The attorney general of the great state of Montana- Austin Knudsen- announces that IF the Biden administration attempts to deliver illegal immigrants from the U.S.-Mexico border to northern states, they are going to slam the administration with a hefty lawsuit.  NO one wants these illegals, Joe, so stop dumping them across the country.  As the BIDEN BORDER HOLOCAUST continues to develop, a weakening Biden administration says, ‘yes, indeed, it will allow reporters to visit the border.’  Speaking of the border, President Donald J. Trump says he will be visiting the border within the next several weeks.   Next, an ABC-IPSOS poll released today says that ’56-percent of the American people do NOT approve of Joe Biden’s bungled border crisis, the disaster that threatens to engulf our entire nation.  We suspect the numbers are far higher than that.  Finally, Senator Mike Braun reported that a Biden administration hack demanded GOP senators delete all photos of their visit to the crumbling border.
  74. 2021 Sunday C: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS- The Biden administration installs a rabid anti-Trumper by the name of Richard Torres Estrada into the role of Chief of Diversity and Inclusion (what a load of bullshit.  There, we said it, what are you going to do about it?) into the Special Operations Command.  I guess we need more snowflakes with which to terrify the NEW Axis powers of communist China, Russia, Iran, and their junior partners North Korea, Venezuela, and Cuba.  Limp-wristed defenses are best.  Speaking of North Korea, it appears that Joe Biden is indeed losing sleep at night over North Korea because he won’t utter a peep against their bellicosity.
  75. 2021 Sunday D: POLITICAL NEWS I- In Iowa, the news media is turning on Democrat Rita Hart, the woman trying to get House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to steal the seat from lawfully-seated Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks.  The Cornhuskers are growing angrier by the day and the Democrat media is slamming Ms. Hart and Pelosi, too.  God bless them.   Meanwhile, Bill Maher on his show, Real Time with Bill Maher, noted left-of-center commentator is blasting the WOKE attitudes in U.S. schools, hammering them for being unable to hear ALL views.  Good for you, Bill.
  76. 2021 Sunday E: POLITICAL NEWS II- Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, Congressman Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd congressional district, blasts “Mumbles” for staging political theater on the grounds of the Capitol what with razor wire fencing that never seems to come down surrounding Fort Pelosi as well as for installing metal detectors through which, ALL members must pass or face an immediate docking of $5,000 from their pay.  People of California vote this angry old senile hag out of office.
  77. 2021 Sunday F: POLITICAL NEWS III- Corey Lewandowski says that when President Donald J. Trump’s new social media platform goes live, people will be able to communicate directly with the 45th president.   Elsewhere, GOP Asian official Lee Wong shows his battle scars to his fellow Cincinnati city council members.  “Don’t question my patriotism” as he displayed his scarred body from 20-years’ military service in the U.S. military.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. says that ‘before the Democrats go after law abiding citizens’ guns, they had better do something about Hunter Biden as man, that guy lied on a federal background check form as well as tossed a firearm into a trash can across from a school that then disappeared.  Amen.
  78. 2021 Sunday G: POLITICAL NEWS IV- Meanwhile, this September, Congress is going to award murdered retired police Captain David Dorn with the Congressional Medal of Honor.  Looks like “Mumbles” needs to show she actually gives a flying fluck about murdered cops.    Elsewhere, the people of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are seeking to remove their version of Los Angeles County’s George Gascon, the inept left-wing POS DA Larry Krasner.  Since last summer’s protests, violent crime rates have soared into the stratosphere.  Remove this George Soros-funded piece of duck dreck from office.  NOW.   Next, Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA and a man who serves Karl Marx and the Lord simultaneously, told Dana “Horse Face” Bash today that the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate can concentrate on BOTH voting rights and infrastructure at the same time.  Wow.  Good for you.
  79. 2021 Sunday H: CHINESE VIRUS NEWS- Vladimir Putin says he expects that herd immunity in the former Soviet Union will arrive sometime towards the end of summer at which point, all lockdowns and restrictions will be removed.   Next, the British expect the second round of Wuhan Virus vaccines will soon be administered to the British people and even better, thanks to increasing supplies, people will not have to receive MIXED vaccinations which is incredibly good.  Elsewhere, One America News asked a question today: “Is the China Virus responsible for hate crimes?”  No, the communist Chinese are responsible for the virus and OTHER minorities than Asians hired by the Democrats to go out and commit faux hate crimes against Asians are responsible.  Why do you think we NEVER see the perpetrators in the FEW EXAMPLES trotted out by leftist news media to show us of this wave of hate crimes against Asian Americans?  It’s not happening yet Asian Americans at the drop of a hat (Democrats set this stuff in motion) are out in the streets demanding STOP THE HATE.  It’s all Astroturf, folks.  (What we have seen is young black men attacking Asians.  Someone talk about that, please).
  80. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,016,385 confirmed cases, 2,780,776  confirmed deaths, and 71,960,689 confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,254,490 confirmed cases, 549,289 confirmed deaths, (down from last count albeit from a different source) and 118,387,582 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. 
  81. 2021 Sunday J: 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-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,658,714 confirmed cases, 58,815 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,712 confirmed cases, 461 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 361,115 confirmed cases, 5,218 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the fourth highest state after California- Illinois: currently, they have 1,220,432 confirmed cases, 23,329 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 831,924 confirmed cases, 6,185 confirmed deaths, and 816,218 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Jordan, home of the Hashemite kings: 589,316 cases of the virus, 8,763 confirmed deaths and 527,609 confirmed recoveries.[v]
  82. 2021 Sunday K: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.895 per gallon, $3.649 in Hawaii, and $3.326 in Washington state.[vi]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,105,144,952,031 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[vii]  Cloward and Piven at high speed.
  83. 2021 Sunday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- California theme parks are preparing to reopen this week.  Next, the White House and private industries are conspiring as HOW to create ‘vaccine passports’ so that those who resist vaccination with this as yet-unknown crap- will be prevented from participating in normal society.  The Health and Human Services Department is the driving force behind this initiative by which, the federal government and the globalist movement can force everyone to accept their agenda.  People of faith are suspicious of this push to get everyone to take this vaccine for a disease that millions suspect is not quite as bad as advertised.  Very strange, folks, very strange.  Finally, Oscar De La Hoya is going to make yet another comeback, this time at age 48.
  84. 2022 Monday: Stick around, let’s see what happens today…

  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…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On June 03, 2003, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- re-released their first official ‘best of package,’ “M.U.- the Best of Jethro Tull” which featured slim pickings of 11 tracks culled from their earlier albums and again from the two albums following “Thick as a Brick” and “A Passion Play.”  The tracks, of course, are remastered and the name has changed to “The Essential Jethro Tull.”  If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “Living in the Past” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL.

  55. 2015 Tuesday: According to Brainy History, a second major earthquake, magnitude 7.3, hits Nepal less than three weeks after a magnitude 7.8-earthquake shook the nation and caused thousands of deaths and injuries; at least 48 people have perished in this second event.  Meanwhile, in his first visit to Russia since the Ukraine crisis broke out, U.S. Secretary of State John F.

  59. 2019 Sunday: The government of Cuba continues to lie: due to the U.S. ‘embargo’ (remember: every other nation in the world trades with this POS communist hellhole) and hoarding by its people, the government must ration more products including vital foodstuffs such as rice and beans.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: Due to the Chinese COVID-19 Virus, Democrat governors around the country continue to extend and prolong their stay-at-home orders even though increasing numbers of Americans are beginning to fight back.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proposes an illegal alien, Pro-Death-friendly $3 trillion Wuhan Virus relief bill which everyone with sense says is “CRAZY!”  Here are the Kung Flu COVID-19 statistics for the day (around the planet): 4,233,504 confirmed cases, 289,932 confirmed deaths, and 1,481,314 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,399,305 confirmed cases, 83,019 confirmed deaths, and 234,607 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, we start with California: 69,715 confirmed cases, 2,802 confirmed deaths, and once again, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, we have Hawaii: 635 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 563 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, we have Washington state: 17,330 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO reports of confirmed recoveries.   Democrat governors, we understand you are messing with the statistics so you can continue the lockdown.  You reap what you sow.  IF you are curious about the numbers in the origin nation of the Chinese Virus, they remain the same as they did two weeks ago.
  61. 2021 Wednesday: Stick around and discover the truth with us…

2019: 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.

#RM01.1u Concerto #21 03-06-2015 (400)

 

Roxy Music released its next astounding offering on June 26, 2001, the astonishing “Concerto.” This CD is the second album to hit store shelves featuring the band on tour in 1979 performing the music of “Manifesto” (one of our favorite albums, by the way) along with cuts from other albums. While some bitch and moan about the reformed band and its three ensuing albums—“Manifesto,” “Flesh & Blood,” and “Avalon,”–we happen to love all three of the albums and are overjoyed anytime the group releases live recordings from this era. We hope you will check out this double-CD offering because every tune is a joyous revel in the sound that ONLY this band had and will forever be known for so please—use the link we provide you here so you can go to Amazon.com. Once there, pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that rocks your socks—you will be extremely glad you did, no doubt about it whatsoever.
