  50. 2015 Saturday:  The jihadist attacks in France were the work of three terrorist teams- so says the government of France- and that it is an ‘ACT OF WAR BY ISIS.”  Law enforcement across the European continent continues rooting out the various jihadi rats and military strikes across Syria take on a new ferocious intensity.  Where is that POS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.  Crucify the scumbag.

  53. 2018 Wednesday: As DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen continues receiving incoming flak for having told members of a massive illegal alien caravan trying to cross into the United States from Mexico that the ‘Trump administration would likely reject their claims of asylum.’  Such is being a member of the Trump team, constant ongoing attacks by crazed leftists.   Meanwhile, a federal judge in Mississippi strikes down the state’s new anti-abortion law.  Deep State interference once again.
  54. 2019 Thursday: After two more witnesses appeared before House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-CA, on the inquiry into impeaching Donald J. Trump, Schiff had to throw his hands up in resignation as once again, disaster befell the cretin.  The first witness, David Holmes (no relation to “Big John”), former counselor for the U.S. embassy in Kiev and the second witness, Dr. Fiona Hill, a Brit, former NSC director for Europe and Russia had nothing to add to the impeachment hopes of the Democrats.  In fact, within minutes, Chef Lilah Paulikovich suggested to @RepAdamSchiff on Twitter that he fall on his sword and take his senile House leader, Nancy Pelosi, down with him.  These hostile losers hate Trump so it’s ironic that their hatred will re-elect President Trump in a massive 2020 landslide.  Meanwhile, UNKNOWN Democratic presidential candidate, Mayor Wayne Messam[viii], of Miramar, Florida, dropped out of the race on this date.  He never appeared in a single Democratic Party debate, and no one knew who the flip he was.
  55. 2020 Saturday: We learn that the Chi-Coms now blame Italy for having created the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, which is not surprising seeing as how the communist government in Beijing does not want the world blaming THEM for creating a virus from horseshoe bats and pangolins and then letting it ‘escape’ their Wuhan laboratory and to then infect the world.  The fact that the Italians are ignorant enough to participate in the Chi-Coms’ Belt and Roads Initiative makes them the perfect fall guys for the communists to blame.  Remember- they tried to blame the U.S. military for having snuck into Wuhan, let it loose there, and then to infect the rest of the world.  What a bunch of diabolic scumbags.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, stocks have tumbled due to the possible return of stentorian COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions. 
  56. 2020 Saturday A: President Donald J. Trump is considering signing an executive order that will stop birthright citizenship for children born to illegal alien mothers on U.S. soil.  Christ, we need a constitutional amendment that lays out precisely what citizenship is because the Democratic Party and their RINO enablers want to give citizenship to the rest of the world.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in Qatar today meeting with his counterparts as the Trump administration continues bringing peace to the Middle East.  Elsewhere, President Trump will be participating in the virtual G20 Summit today.  Finally, the CIA is awarding its cloud contract to a consortium of left-wing companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Google, Amazon.com, and others.  What is up with this?
  57. 2020 Saturday B: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, let us present to you the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s hypocritical snowflake Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 57,974,667 confirmed cases, +547,309, 1,378,411, confirmed deaths, +8,644, and 37,073,704 confirmed recoveries, +342,274.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 12,142,989 confirmed cases, UP 156,640 from yesterday’s reporting, 259,283 confirmed deaths, UP 1,410, and 6,204,239 confirmed recoveries, UP 43,454.
  58. 2020 Saturday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,096,354 confirmed cases, 18,644 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 17,029 confirmed cases, 224 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 147,251 confirmed cases, 2,738 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Massachusetts- currently, they have 204,155 confirmed cases, 10,488 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- we guess it is what it is.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 328,397 confirmed cases, 2,757 confirmed deaths, and 317,171 confirmed recoveries.
  59. 2020 Saturday D: As more evidence continues coming to light over how the Democratic Party and their Chi-Coms worked to rob President Donald J. Trump of the 2020 Presidential Election continues coming to light, the more we understand WHY the Democrats are so determined to ramrod this through like a Big John Holmes porno movie because they know that if the courts become involved and everything they’ve done comes to light, the more devastating it’s going to be both for this criminal, Marxist party and the Chi-Com leadership.  Imagine the Chi-Coms trying to blame Italy for a disease they manufactured in a biowarfare laboratory in Wuhan, China.  In our view, we should nuke both the Chi-Coms and the Canadians for our northern neighbor’s participation in the plot to remove President Donald J. Trump- Moses Scharbug III.
  60. 2020 Saturday E: ISIS claims responsibility for a mortar attack that dropped 23 shells on a residential neighborhood in Kabul, Afghanistan killing at least 8 people and wounding another 31.  Some of the shells fell near the Iranian Embassy.   U.S. and Taiwan step up economic partnership by signing a five-year cooperation deal that will bring the two countries (we consider Taiwan a country) closer together and will increase trade between the two countries (although the Chi-Coms will not be happy; f**k them).  Finally, Twitter announces that on Inauguration Day, it will hand over accounts associated with the presidency and the White House to the incoming administration.  Accounts such as @POTUS, @FLOTUS, @WhiteHouse, and others will go to the Biden administration IF he truly becomes president.  Twitter also says they will work closely with the Biden administration.  Hmmm, about what?  
  61. 2020 Saturday F: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3510 with a jackpot of $8 million at stake: 08, 12, 16, 21, 41, AND Mega 20.  The highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $29,647.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #796 with a jackpot of $192 million up for grabs- 51, 54, 57, 60, 69, and Powerball 11.  The highest winners were 53 people who had four numbers for a prize of $387 apiece.
  62. 2021 Sunday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Sadly, the previous two albums by guitarist/vocalist Richard Thompson were not big sellers so record label management gave him the old heave-ho.  When he released his next album, “Amnesia,” on October 15, 1988, he sure showed them.  Practically every tune on this album was a glorious endeavor, beginning with “Turning of the Tide” through “Reckless Kind” to “Yankee Go Home” to “Can’t Win” to the closing notes of “Pharoah” and every tune in between.  Joining the extremely talented guitarist/vocalist are (1) Jim Keltner on drums (2) Mickey Curry on drums (3) Alex Acuna (percussion), (4) Michael Froom (keyboards) (5) Jerry Scheff (basses) (6) John Kirkpatrick (accordions and concertinas), and loads of other people.  This is a fine album; we encourage everyone to seek out and to add to their ever-growing collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Saturday, November 21, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:   

Having once been a hardcore leftist, I know how the game is played which is WHY I tell you now that what the Democrats and their allies in the fake news media continue trying to convince us is the TRUTH simply is NOT- Trump won BIG

Saturday, November 21, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] 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.

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

[iii] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of Boston but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[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] U.S. Circuit Court Judge Clement F. Haynsworth served on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.  He was born in Greenville, S.C., on 10-30-1912 and died on 11-22-1989 in the same city.  President Richard M. Nixon nominated him to fill the seat of Associate Justice Abe Fortas, but Democrats fought hard to protect the seat of the liberal Fortas forcing the president to nominate someone less conservative than Haynsworth. 

[vi] 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.

[vii] Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the breakaway republics have been beset by corruption because the parent country, the USSR, was incredibly corrupt as almost all communist systems are.  However, for American politicians, the Ukraine has been a place to make a lot of money, just look at Joe and Hunter Biden who gorged at the well for years and which is why Democrats in 2019 are trying to impeach and remove President Donald J. Trump.  It is not about them ‘fighting corruption’ but about keeping their cash cow afloat.  Shame on them.

[viii] Other Democratic candidates who have dropped out at this point are in numerical order: (1) Eric Swalwell; (2) John Hickenlooper; (3) Jay Inslee; (4) Seth Moulton; (5) Kirsten Gillibrand; (6) Bill Di Blasio; (7) Tim Ryan; and (8) Robert Francis “Beto-Bozo” O’Rourke.

Trump for comments he made about the crappy job the city’s highest civil servant for being such a worthless putz.   He claims the president has created ‘hate and division.’  Meanwhile, Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf says ‘all options’ are on the table for ending the violence afflicting major and mid-sized American cities facing increased violence on their streets, violence we allege the Chi-Coms are financing through their lackeys in the Democratic Party, what we now call the Democratic-Socialist Party of America, the DSPA.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden pops out of his hidey hole and denounces the violence afflicting the United States.  Uh, okay Joe, okay.  Finally, a shooting outside a pancake house in Chicago today claims one life and wounds several others.  It was a drive-by shooting in which an SUV pulled by the foodservice establishment and opened fire.  Democratic Catchphrase of the Day: “Trump is dividing the nation!”  Reprobate Congressman Adam Schiff, D-CA, tells Dana Bash, aka Old Horse Face, that “Donald Trump is fanning the flames of violence.”  Hmmm…

  57. 2020 Sunday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days.  Sorry.
  58. 2021 Monday: Unlike my colleague, Chef Fritz, who antagonized the Chinese last week, I am going to remain neutral in assigning all blame for global and U.S. problems.  I would prefer to get along with them.  Stick with me throughout this week and we shall see what we shall see…

ENDNOTES:


[i] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

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

[iii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig, Mick Abrahams, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Wild Turkey, and Paris on Monday, May 24, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We are still in the process of presenting the music so please, join us at WordPress.  We hope you will.

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

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

I suspect Gropin’ Joe won’t make it to November which will mean a realignment of the ‘Harris-Biden ticket’ to the ‘Sanders-Harris ticket’ which it’s been all along

  58. 2020 Monday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,166,298 confirmed cases, +313,847, 690,953 confirmed deaths, +11,159, and 10,768,016 confirmed recoveries, +169,689.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,795,493 confirmed cases, UP by 55,092 new cases, 157,729 confirmed deaths, UP by 616 new deaths, and 2,334,073 confirmed recoveries, UP by 29,222 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 514,901 confirmed cases, 9,388 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,173 confirmed cases, 1,596 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  59. 2020 Monday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,664.40, UP 236.08 points (0.89%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,902.80, UP 157.52 points (1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,294.61, UP 23.49 points (0.72%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,989.50 per troy oz., UP 3.20 (+0.16%), SILVER is at $24.38 per troy oz., UP -0.032 (-0.13%), PLATINUM $936.00 per troy oz. UP +4.90 (+0.53%), and COPPER is at $2.92 # +0.004 (+0.14%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 40.71, UP -0.30 (-0.73%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.98 Chi-Com yuan. In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.  
  60. 2021 Tuesday: What have the Chi-Coms done today?  What has their stooge, drooling Joe Biden done?  Stick around and find out along with the rest of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The album we have for you today is actually the first SOLO effort that original Jethro Tull guitarist Mick Abrahams released following the two albums he made with his first solo group, Blodwyn Pig.  “Times Have Changed” came out in 1971 but we have it here as a re-release issued on September 08, 2008.  Abrahams is an unsung guitarist which is a true shame because he deserves to be in the same pantheon of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Kim Simmonds, Alvin Lee, and a few select others as his ability to interpret the blues ranks among the all-time great top 10 axmen.  We hope you will seek this album out by visiting whatever site it is you do for the best in rock music as you will most definitely enjoy it.   Seek it out ASAP and give your ears the gift of blues music.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the other bands with which York played like the Bees, the Sir Douglas Quintet, the Museums, CRY, Gene Clark’s solo band, and Carla Olson.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your 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.

[vii] 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.

  26. 1941 Friday: War is approaching the United States although they don’t know it yet.  Japan’s government is undergoing a shakeup in its cabinet as some of its members wish to trash the neutrality pact they have with the Soviet Union, join the Nazis in assaulting Russia, and hitting the Bolsheviks from both sides.  Others think this would be a mistake, that some sort of accommodation can be made with the United States to keep oil supplies and raw materials flowing in so they can crush the Chinese.   Eventually, they will lose out on both as the Soviets will survive the year and the Americans will cut off their supplies thus bringing about the attack on Pearl Harbor in just FIVE short months.  Had they invaded Asiatic Russia, the Soviets would have been destroyed.

  29. 1944 Tuesday: Emperor Hirohito’s government removed Japanese Premier Hideki Tojo from his post due to setbacks suffered by their country during World War II.  Meanwhile, in Nazi-controlled Europe, American forces fighting in France captured the important Normandy town of St. Lo.  On the Eastern Front, the Soviets are pushing hard at the Germans.  The Germans are clinging to positions in the western portion of the Soviet Union but the heady days of 1941 are long since gone and the Germans are the ones being encircled and crushed.

  51. 2013 Thursday: Detroit, Michigan, files the largest municipal bankruptcy in the history of the world and seeks Chapter 9 Bankruptcy Protection on its debt of $18.5 billion.  It is interesting to note that Democrats have controlled the city for nearly 60 years yet they blame everyone else for their stupidity.  People of Michigan- time to start electing a full slate of Republicans.  Elsewhere, Russian freedom fighter Alexei Navalny is convicted of embezzling from a Putin-controlled timber company.    
  52. 2014 Friday:  Forbes Media, controlled by the Forbes family, is selling a majority interest in the business to Integrated Whale Media Investments, based in Hong Kong; the deal is expected to provide Forbes with greater international exposure.   Meanwhile, the U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting a day after the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 with the loss of all 298 people on board, demanding that pro-Russia rebels who controlled the eastern Ukraine crash site give immediate, unfettered access to independent investigators.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration announced it was reopening the Eastern Seaboard to offshore oil and gas exploration,.
  53. 2015 Saturday: Supreme Ayatollah of Iran, Ali Khamenei says that despite the recent nuclear deal with the United States, it does not change his views on the United States or its policies in the Middle East.   Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia launches a major crackdown on ISIS garbage in their country by going out and rounding up 431 jihadist suspects.   We suspect the chopping blocks are going to be extremely busy… Elsewhere, California is burning as usual what with the Cajon Pass Wildfire in San Bernardino County.  At least 3,500 acres have gone up in smoke as have 16 homes along with at least 65-70 passenger vehicles and trucks.  Once again, California Democrats bear full responsibility for this outrage for not maintaining the forests.

  55. 2017 Tuesday: Regarding ALLEGED misconduct in voting rights cases in the great state of Kansas, a disciplinary group that oversees attorneys in the state has announced that they are going to launch an investigation into the state’s Secretary of State Kris Kobach.   Once again, anyone fighting to protect voting rights in this country becomes a target of left-wing, Democratic-Socialist Party terrorists.  What a shame.
  56. 2018 Wednesday: After worldwide condemnation and a dramatic drop in the price of Tesla stock, Elon Musk apologizes for having slandered drowned Thai cave diver who helped rescue the Thai boys soccer team from the cave complex in which they had been trapped by rising floodwaters.  Musk had called the renowned diver, “Pedo guy,” inferring that he was somehow a pedophile.  What really had Musk bothered is that his attempt at rescuing the boys and their coach failed.  Meanwhile, Turkey ends its two-year state of emergency on this date. 
  57. 2019 Thursday: In Israel’s Negev Desert, archaeologists discover the world’s ‘oldest mosque.’  However, the Jews were there first so Islam cannot use this ‘find’ as yet another pretense for claiming they own the land of the Jewish state.   Meanwhile, the city of West Palm Beach, Florida, confounded by hordes of homeless people clogging the city’s waterfront resorts to blasting two children’s songs- “Baby Shark” and “Raining Tacos” to drive the homeless away.  Not sure whether it worked or not but it sure as hell should have.  Horrible songs.  Meanwhile, fresh from condemning President Trump the previous day, the House of Representatives votes to table a resolution on whether to impeach the 45th president or not.  The vote was 332-95.
  58. 2020 Saturday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 14,210,040 confirmed cases, UP 173,019, 600,435 confirmed deaths, and 7,983,920 confirmed recoveries, UP 165,611.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 3,781,985 confirmed cases, UP 104,532 new cases, 142,229 confirmed deaths, UP 1,341, and 1,108,581 confirmed recoveries, UP 31,695.  Next, in the three states where 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: 375,363 confirmed cases, 7,595 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 1,334 confirmed cases, 23 confirmed deaths, and 994 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 45,943 confirmed cases, 1,444 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.
  59. 2021 Sunday: What are the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the North Koreans, the Cubans, and the Venezuelans and their stooge- senile Joe Biden- up to today?  We shall see.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On June 05, 2001, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- released yet another official ‘best of package,’ “The Very Best of Jethro Tull” which featured 20 tracks spread out from across much of the storied band’s career.   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 “25th Anniversary Box Set” 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 instead of Amazon or Alibaba or any other BIG ONLINE RETAILER.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

EEE. 2020 Tuesday: Thanks to infusion of dark money from the Chinese Communist Party (or so the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes), unrest in American cities continues unabated. Many cities- both large and small- continue to suffer violent riots and angry protests, supposedly over the murder of George Floyd but now, many are not so sure. At the same time, the Chinese Wuhan Virus Bat Flu continues causing problems which is somewhat redundant as both the riots and the disease are Beijing’s response to Trump out-negotiating them on the U.S.-communist China Trade Deal.

  47. 2009 Tuesday: Anti-abortion activist Scott Roeder, was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of late-term abortion provider Dr. George “Tiller the Baby Killer” in Wichita, Kansas.  He received a sentence of life in prison with no possibility of parole for 50 years.

  52. 2015 Tuesday: In some sleight of hand, the U.S. Senate passes the USA Freedom Act which ‘transfers’ the bulk collection of metadata from the phones of Americans out of the hands of the National Security Agency (of course it does…) and into the vaults of various phone companies (that the NSA can easily access).  Feel good? Sure, REAL good…
  53. 2016 Thursday: Much to the anger of the Turkish government, the German government plows ahead with the recognizing the Turkish massacre of more than 1 million Armenians during World War I as the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE committed exclusively by Turkish troops.  Evil.  Elsewhere, a Trump rally in San Jose, California, sees loads of leftists pouring out into the streets, attacking Trump supporters and law enforcement wherever they find them; some people are hospitalized.

  56. 2019 Sunday: In Game 2 of the 2018-19 NBA Finals in Toronto, Canada, the Golden State Warriors roared back to win the game against home team, Toronto Raptors, by a final score of 109-104.   Elsewhere, Canada temporarily closes its embassy in Venezuela after the government of thug dictator Nicolas Maduro fails to provide accreditation to Canadian diplomats.  The Venezuelans are peeved.  Screw them.
  57. 2020 Tuesday: Thanks to infusion of dark money from the Chinese Communist Party (or so the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes), unrest in American cities continues unabated.  Many cities- both large and small- continue to suffer violent riots and angry protests, supposedly over the murder of George Floyd but now, many are not so sure.   At the same time, the Chinese Wuhan Virus Bat Flu continues causing problems which is somewhat redundant as both the riots and the disease are Beijing’s response to Trump out-negotiating them on the U.S.-communist China Trade Deal.  Here are the COVID-19 stats for the planet today: 6,325,603 confirmed cases, 377,460 confirmed deaths, but 2,727,679 confirmed recoveries which is excellent, as far as recoveries go.
  58. 2020 Tuesday A: In the United States- the place hardest hit by the Bat Flu, here are the numbers for today:  1,866,279 confirmed cases, 107,506 confirmed deaths, but 416,319 confirmed recoveries.  Note: U.S. recoveries would be much, much higher if MOST Blue State governors would not conceal the numbers which would make the number of deaths appear far less.  Shame on them.  Moving on, in the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 115,310 confirmed cases, 4,286 confirmed deaths, but Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  Next, in Hawaii, here are the numbers: 652 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 608 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Governor David Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, here are the numbers: 22,130 confirmed cases, 1,129 confirmed deaths, but that dingbat Governor Jay Inslee won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.   
  59. 2021 Wednesday: Folks, we encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever the flipping Chi-Coms and their stooges in the White House are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger featuring Tom Evans (bass and vocals) and Joey Molland (guitars, pianos, and vocals) recruited new members Tony Kaye (keyboards), Glenn Sherba (guitars), and Richard Bryans (drums) and on January 17, 1981, released their next album, “Say No More.”  Say what you will about this eclectic power-pop band, over the years they created some wonderful music although most of the members were afflicted with personal tragedies.  The loss of Pete Ham to suicide always cast a dark pall over the group as would the upcoming suicide of Tom Evans.  This band could have been one of the all-time greats but beginning with their mistreatment at Apple Records through various managers and a Yoko Ono-like wife and one can see as to why their glorious musical future that might have been instead became very dark and morose.  Still, this album is an excellent one and we hope that everyone will seek it out and add it to their collections

Colonel Pierre Langlais confronts Colonel Christian De Castries and demands a reordering of the command structure.

Trump.  
  56. 2017 Friday: Thanks to schmucks such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Trump administration and their GOP allies in the House of Representatives are forced to pull their plan to overturn Obamacare and to replace it with a better plan.   Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee goes to war with itself over the bogus Trump-Russia Collusion scam, the very same engineered by the Democrats.  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, and ranking member, the locoweed Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, are butting heads over information coming out that shows that the Obama administration SPIED on the then-Trump campaign.

  58. 2019 Sunday: On this Sunday, Attorney-General Bill Barr put out a brief on the 22-month Robert S. Mueller III investigation into Donald Trump, Trump campaign officials, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia by saying that ‘Mueller’s team had found no evidence of collusion between now-President Trump, members of his campaign, his friends and family and Russia nor was there any sign of obstruction.’  In effect, this clears the president and those around him other than those convicted of process crimes during the investigation.  The Democrats could not handle the outcome and rushed to the microphones braying like dogs for ALL the evidence and promise to continue the witch hunt into Mr. Trump.  The investigation began- many believe- in late 2015 or early 2016 and involved members of the Hillary Clinton team, Barack Obama Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as foreign operatives hired by members of the Obama team to set up candidate- and then- President Trump.  
  59. 2020 Tuesday: Democrats continue stalling in the U.S. Senate by holding up Wuhan Virus relief legislation by trying to stuff in Green New Deal, Pro-Death, union, identity politics, election fraud such as ballot harvesting in ALL 50 states, and more.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues rebuffing them in the hope that honest and legitimate legislation can occur.  Meanwhile, the world around mid-day acknowledges approximately 414,277 cases of COVID-19, with 38,819 new cases over the past 24 hours.  Global deaths are 18,557 what with 2,146 in the previous 24 hours.  In the United States, there are 51,542 cases of the Kung Flu with 8,328 new cases over the past 24 hours.  There is a total of 674 deaths, up by 95 over the previous 24 hours.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closes UP by 11.3% or up 2,112.98 points, closing at 20,764.91.  Bravo.

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

  41. 1955 Thursday: The 89th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John Marshall Harlan II assumed his position on the nation’s high court on this date.  A Republican, President Dwight D. Eisenhower nominated Harlan to fill the seat of Associate Justice Robert H. Jackson’s seat.  He served from today until September 23, 1971.
  42. 1958 Monday: The U.S. Navy launched the Vanguard 1 satellite.

  44. 1960 Thursday: President Dwight D. Eisenhower forms an anti-Fidel Castro-exile army under the auspices of the CIA.  Communists in Cuba is not good and it’s clear that the U.S. failed to nip this one in the bud.  Soon, the Soviets will be building military bases on the island.  Not good.

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

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

  62. 2003 Monday: Edging to the brink of war, President George W. Bush gave Saddam Hussein 48 hours to leave his country.  However, Iraq rejected Bush’s ultimatum, saying that a U.S. attack to force Saddam from power would be a “grave mistake.”
  63. 2004 Wednesday: NASA’s Messenger became the first spacecraft to enter orbit around Mercury.  The probe took more than 270,000 pictures before it crashed into the surface of the planet on April 30, 2015.  Elsewhere, guests at the Mount Lebanon Hotel in Baghdad got more than they planned on when a car bomb piloted by some jihadists crashed into the place, blowing it sky-high.  In the blast, 17 were killed outright while another 45 or more suffered varying injuries.  Once again, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam is to blame.
  64. 2005 Thursday: The People’s Republic of China frees Uighur Muslim dissident and businesswoman Rebiya Kadeer on medical parole.  They probably decided that if they tortured this woman any longer, her heart would give out so the Chi-Coms most likely bowed to Western pressure.   Kadeer became a millionaire through her real estate holdings so it’s clear the Chi-Coms wanted to shake her down.
  65. 2006 Friday: Federal regulators reported the deaths of two women in addition to four others who had taken the abortion pill RU-486; Planned Parenthood- the notorious ‘baby chop shop’- said it would immediately stop disregarding the approved instructions for the use of the murderous drug.  Elsewhere, fashion designed Oleg Cassini died on Long Island, NY, at age 92.
  66. 2007 Saturday: Australian Prime Minister John Howard announces that Australia will keep its troops in Iraq until the Iraqi government is able to maintain order.   In other truly fascinating news, heavy metal band Iron Maiden[ix] becomes the first heavy metal band to tour India.  How about that?

  68. 2009 Tuesday: Upset continues to grow over AIG executives going to get bonuses so the Democrat-controlled Congress is threatening to pass a bill by which they can slap hefty taxes on these bonuses.  Other companies that have gotten bailouts like Citigroup and Morgan Stanley are seeking ways they can hand out bonuses to their executives without everyone and his or her brother knowing.  They are trying to get in before the Congress can come after them.
  69. 2010 Wednesday: as the Obama administration continues trying to drum up votes with which to pass the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka the PPACA, aka the ACA, aka “Obamacare,” the White House gets a ‘win’ when two Democratic congressmen opposed to the bill for various reasons change their minds and will vote for it.  Dennis Kucinich of Ohio and Dan Kildee of Michigan announce they are ‘yes votes.’  Oh, good, we can hardly wait.
  70. 2011 Thursday: St. Patrick’s Day parades are now a worldwide event.  Meanwhile, Libya claims it will end fighting on Sunday for the jihadists to turn themselves in to the government.   Elsewhere, in a recent drone strike in Pakistan, the CIA blasts 40 Pakistani civilians to kingdom come and wounds God knows how many others.  WTF are you doing, President Obama?  Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled House passes a bill with which to defund the left-wing NPR.
  71. 2012 Saturday: Despite being under house arrest in Great Britain, Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, announces he will seek a seat in the senate of Australia.  Meanwhile, ISIS thugs in Damascus, Syria, attack two government offices killing several government employees and wounding others.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi Arabia is sending weapons to anti-Assad forces in Syria.

  74. 2016 Thursday: Following the U.S. placing new sanctions on the ever-belligerent North Koreans over their nuclear weapons and missile programs, the People’s Republic of China inserts itself between their allies, the North Koreans, and their foes, the U.S. by opposing the unilateral actions of President Barack Hussein Obama.
  75. 2017 Friday: Donna Brazile, former head of the DNC, admits she gave Hillary Clinton copies of debate questions ahead of her debate with now-President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, in the Yemeni civil war, a U.S. Apache helicopter piloted by unknown individuals opens fire on a Somali refugee boat off the coast of the war-torn country killing at least 40 refugees and injuring another 35.  NO one knows who committed this dastardly act.
  76. 2018 Saturday: The National People’s Congress appoints Wang Qishan as vice president on this date.  In Iran, a close ally of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his former vice president is arrested for criticizing the Iranian judiciary.  No room for criticism in that country.

  79. 2020 Tuesday A: In the three presidential primaries held today, candidate Joe Biden beat the hell out of his opponent Bernie Sanders winning Arizona, Florida, and Illinois.  Ohio postponed its primary until later in the year out of fear of the COVID-19 virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, the one the Chinese gave the world.  Meanwhile, speaking of the Hubei Hooey, Pfizer and Biontech sign deals to develop a vaccine for the Chi-Com Virus, the Chi-Vi, the ‘VID.  People do not believe it is possible but with President Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

When you have something good, it’s difficult to leave it behind even though band mates might be at odds with one another.  Bassist Pete Way and guitarist Michael Schenker asked vocalist Phil Mogg and drummer Andy Parker if they would like to revive UFO but unfortunately, friction won out and Way and Schenker formed their own group, the Plot.  They released one album entitled, “The Plot,” on October 14, 2003 and folks, it rocked from start to finish.  Like many musicians, when good vocalists are hard to find- especially as the older ones die off and the younger ones just suck- they step up to the mic and give it a go.  Pete Way is a superb vocalist and when complimented by Schenker’s fiery guitar licks and chops, they rock supreme.  Drummer Jeff Martin rounds out the beat hammering away at the skins to the point that one’s mind is ready to blow.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did.
