They were put in such a way that the legions could pass by single file down a track by the side of a river with hundreds of thousands of Germans lurking on the other side of the track in the forest.

The fourth one crashed in a field in western Pennsylvania after the passengers could regain control of the plane but could not stop it from crashing.
- 2006 Monday: In a prime-time address, President George W. Bush invoked the memory of victims of the 9/11 attacks as he staunchly defended the war in Iraq, though he acknowledged that Saddam Hussein was not responsible for the attacks.
- 2007 Tuesday: A new Osama bin Laden videotape was released on the sixth anniversary of 9/11; in it, the voice of the al-Qaida leader is heard commemorating one of the suicide hijackers and calling on young radicalized Muslims- members of the so-called, “Religion of Peace,” to follow his example by martyring themselves in attacks on the West. Screw ‘em. Meanwhile, in answer to the United State’s “Mother of All Bombs,” the amazing GBU/43/B Massive Ordinance Air Blast, the so-called “MOAB,” the Russians test what they call the “Father of All Bombs,” the Aviation Thermobaric Bomb of Increased Power. It looks amazing, too, and if it’s true, this conventional weapon would be the most powerful, non-nuclear bomb in the world.

However, thanks to the lack of heightened security, terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate at Benghazi, Libya, and kill the U.S. Ambassador J. Chris Stevens and three other brave Americans. In addition to this attack, thugs and scum also attacked the embassy in Cairo, Egypt. Calls to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for aid went unanswered.
- 2013 Wednesday: France drafts a resolution on this date, which allows the Syrian government–under the control of Bashar al-Assad–can turn over its stockpiles of chemical weapons to the world community for it to destroy. Meanwhile, the UN receives purported use of chemical weapons by the Syria militants against their own people—the news comes from Russia.
- 2014 Thursday: With help from Qatar officials, Syrian rebel captors free 45 U.N. peacekeepers from Fiji; the jihadists took the soldiers hostage two weeks earlier after the rebels overtook the Syrian-controlled part of Golan Heights from government troops. Elsewhere, John Gustafson, former bassist with the English band, Roxy Music[iv], died on this date.
- 2015 Friday: In Mecca, Saudi Arabia, a large construction crane at a building site collapses, killing approximately 100 people and injuring numerous others. Meanwhile, in the early running for the 2016 presidential nomination, Governor Rick Perry, Texas, becomes the first to drop out of the pool of around 16 candidates. Many thought he would go far.
- 2016 Sunday: Word leaks that Democratic 2016 presidential nominee will miss an event commemorating the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, due to a bout with chronic pneumonia. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reports that worldwide oil prices are dropping as U.S. oil rig numbers continue increasing. Oil prices always drop prior to elections because politicians who hate fossil fuels always want the prices lower so the average citizen does not associate them with high oil prices.
- 2017 Monday: In the Catalan city of Barcelona, Spain, one million Catalonians take to the streets on the state’s national holiday demanding secession from the parent country. Things would not work out for them in the long run. Still, the independence movement gave it a good shot. Meanwhile, as Hurricane Irma begins moving up the coast, 7 million homes in Georgia and Texas find themselves without power and in varying degrees of distress.
- 2018 Tuesday: Near Hajin, in eastern Syria, U.S. backed Syrian troops begin the final assault on the final ISIS stronghold in the war-torn country, something that would never have occurred under a President Hillary Rodham Clinton but most certainly did under President Donald J. Trump. Light ‘em up, boys! Meanwhile in Asiatic Russia, the Russian military commences joint military exercises with communist China, putting more than 300,000 troops in the field, their largest such endeavor since the early 1980s. They are trying to send President Trump a message: Look at us- we’re bad.
- 2019 Wednesday: As usual, Palestinians are running amok after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promises that should he win next week’s snap election, he will annex one-third of the West Bank. The Palestinians bellow that ‘this would be tantamount to a war crime.’ Look you dimwits, you are better off with the Israelis in charge than you are with Hezbollah and Hamas and the rest of the jihadi groups. Give it a rest. Elsewhere, it’s official: two Trump-backed Republicans in North Carolina win two special elections, elections that occurred the prior day. Dan Bishop won the 9th Congressional District sending Democrats spinning because they honestly thought they stood a chance in a state they claim is becoming BLUE. In the 3rd Congressional District, Greg Murphy won that race, beating another favored Democrat. Wow.
- 2020 Friday: The TV ratings are in for last night’s opening game in the NFL- the Kansas City Chiefs v. the Houston Texans- had a ratings view of 16.4-percent less than last year’s opening day. What we will say is that we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have sworn off the NFL until (1) they fire Roger Goodell and (2) come back to their senses. IF players want to protest- which is their God-given right- do it on your off time and put your own money where your mouths are. Otherwise, STFU you spoiled rotten sniveling bastards. Meanwhile, the White House announces that the kingdom of Bahrain will also make peace with Israel which drives the Palestinian trash into a foaming-at-the-mouth frenzy once again. Hey, PLO- make peace with Israel and STFU! Also at the White House today, President Donald J. Trump awards the Congressional Medal of Honor to U.S. Army Ranger Sgt. Maj. Thomas Payne for heroic actions in Iraq in 2015. The unit in which Sgt. Maj. Payne served went to free approximately 70-75 Kurdish hostages being held by ISIS fecal matter. He helped rescue many of them and would not leave the field of battle even though one building in which, hostages were being held was ablaze and collapsing all around him. In the action, he helped kill 20 of the ISIS thugs. Congratulations, Sgt. Maj. Payne!
- 2020 Friday A: New York City business leaders sign a letter to Mayor Bill Di Blasio demanding he address the ‘deteriorating conditions in the Big Apple,’ the rising crime rates, the burnt out and destroyed businesses, the dying restaurants, and bars. Mayor Di Blasio and his colleague, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo together have destroyed one of the great states and cities of the country. Time to recall both of them. Elsewhere, the city of Austin, Texas, slashes its police department of one-third of its annual budget- $150 million- which leads law enforcement to erect billboards outside the city warning travelers to ‘enter at your own risk.’ The murder rate in Austin is up 63-percent this year alone. What the hell is going on in the country?
- 2020 Friday B: Big news continues to come out as to HOW the Trump-Russia Collusion investigation led by senile Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his team that wiped their phones used in the investigation so as to coverup the real crimes here- the vilification and attempted destruction of a duly-elected president by members of the Obama administration- including the BIG GUY himself, perhaps- so the world awaits further information. It would appear that Andrew Weissmann, the alleged top dog who ran this phony investigation ordered his cronies to bleach as much information as they could before it fell into the hands of the U.S. Justice Department.
- 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 28,268,970 confirmed cases, +335,582, 911,282, confirmed deaths, +6,101, and 19,048,042 confirmed recoveries, +228,654. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,528,415 confirmed cases, up 57,197 from yesterday’s reporting, 195,789 confirmed deaths, UP 1,422, and 3,535,289 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,799. 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: 754,461 confirmed cases, 14,143 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 10,292 confirmed cases, 94 confirmed deaths, and 3,176 confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 82,264 confirmed cases, 2,074 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other state: Maine- currently, they have 4,792 confirmed cases, 134 confirmed deaths, and 4,191 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Janet Mills for your state’s honesty in this regard- pretty amazing for a Democrat, perhaps California and Washington state could follow suit.
- 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,665.64, UP 131.06 points (+0.48%). Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ: 10,853.55, DOWN 66.05 points (-0.60%). Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,340.97, UP 1.78 points (+0.053%). Price of GOLD: $1,948.10 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.01%) Here is the price of SILVER: $26.92 per troy oz., +0.0068 (+0.25%). Price of PLATINUM: $932.90 per troy oz., -6.70 (-0.71%). Price of PALLADIUM: $2,330.00 per troy oz., +26.50 (+1.15%). Here is the price of COPPER: $3.04 per #, +0.0045 (+0.15%). Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $37.39, +0.06 (+0.16%). Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.83 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
- 2020 Friday E: Wildfires continue raging across the western states what with California beset by numerous fires. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says ‘God is mad at the people’ and that ‘climate change and global warming’ are responsible for the state’s woes. People are dying and Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom (ever notice how hate-filled people always smile before they say ugly stuff like Newsom, Ilhan Omar, and other scumbags) among others who says he has ‘no patience for climate change deniers.’ Look moron, instead of funneling every dime into CalPERS and other state-funded retirement programs for state employees, why not do some of the necessary forestry management such as clear-cutting, removing dead undergrowth, allowing timber companies to responsibly harvest and replant, and engaging in the various water transportation and catchment systems that made our state great? What a bunch of losers, we hope San Francisco is blown off the map by an angry God.
- 2020 Friday F: As you know, it’s yet to come but we all know the Chi-Coms colluding with their Democratic patsies are up to no good. We shall see…

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Electric Light Orchestra released their next biggest seller yet, “Time,” on July 19, 1981. The album was somewhat a change in direction featuring the lineup of Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), and Kelly Groucutt (bass, backing vocals). This is a concept album dealing with a man from the 1980s suddenly transported to 2095. Folks, this is a superb addition to the group’s growing discography, one we hope you will beat the bushes searching for as it contains some glitzy tunes such as “Hold on Tight” and “The Way Life’s Meant to Be.” Tremendous music by one of the all-time best bands of the era.
