GG. 1954 Saturday: at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, General Giap of the People’s Liberation Army has his sights set on drawing closer to the main French base but first, his troops would have to grab control of No Man’s Land which meant more trenches had to be dug to approach the various Huguettes west of the main airstrip. The French are still able to get some daredevil pilots to fly in, do quick drops and take some wounded out so the People’s Army has to stop this by taking control of the strip as best they can.

  49. 2003 Thursday: The United States, Great Britain, Australia, and Poland invade Iraq sans United Nations sanctions.  Airstrikes have already been crisscrossing the country and it appears that the Iraqis are unprepared to contend with this assault.  Little did the Coalition troops know that Saddam Hussein had a plan, a good plan.  Government forces disappear into the shadows and an insurrection fueled by religious extremism will blossom in it’s place.  That won’t happen for several months however…
  50. 2004 Saturday:  In Taiwan, despite being shot in the stomach by an unknown assailant, President Chen Shui-bian wins another term as president.  The results are close so his opponent decries the election as ‘unfair’ but the results hold firm.   Meanwhile, in the United States, millions of people in this country and across the world take to the streets protesting the first anniversary of the war in Iraq.  It started out well and everyone in Congress- including the Democrats- were onboard but as soon as it went south, everyone was all over President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney (especially him), and the administration.
  51. 2005 Sunday: In Fukuoka, Japan, the first major earthquake to hit in more than a century occurs killing one person and injuring numerous others which also causes massive evacuations.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrives in Beijing to meet with Chi-Com President Hu Jintao.

  53. 2007 Tuesday: Democrats continue screeching and whining about the Bush White House firing a bunch of federal attorneys.  President Bush agrees to permit White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers testify but NOT under oath.   Meanwhile, the French government signs an extradition treaty with communist China.  They will ONLY extradite people involved in DEATH PENALTY CASES and only if the communists agree not to condemn the individual to death.  Typical European thinking.
  54. 2008 Thursday: The communist Chinese are having a hell of time trying to quell the rising unrest in Tibet.  Well, go figure- the Chi-Coms are interlopers and Tibet is NOT their country yet they claim it, persecute their people, and are searching for the Dalai Lama as though he is a common criminal.   The Dalai Lama offers to meet with the Chi-Coms but in response they load up hundreds of military vehicles loaded with soldiers to crush the INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT.
  55. 2009 Friday: Somali pirates board their swift boats and take to the high seas attacking the Greek-flagged cargo ship, MV Titan.

  57. 2011 Sunday: The Arab Spring continues: the people of Morocco turn out in the thousands to demand an end to corruption and civil rights for all citizens.  Bahrain is experiencing problems as is Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Libya.  Arabs across the Middle East are hopping mad with their governments and their governments are taken by surprise.  It will lead to a complete restructuring of much of the Middle East.   
  58. 2012 Tuesday: Violence continues to rage across Iraq with 50 people killed and another 240 plus injured as terrorists conduct suicide bombings, shootings, kidnappings, and other violence.  At least 10 cities are experiencing a wave of violence.  Elsewhere, Pope Benedict XVI appoints three new bishops for the United States- one in Baltimore, Maryland, the second in Tallahassee-Pensacola, Florida, and the third in Cheap Trick’s[v] home, Rockford, Illinois.
  59. 2013 Wednesday: Zillur Rahman, age 84, the president of Bangladesh, dies in office after a prolonged illness at a hospital in Singapore; the government declared three days of mourning.  Meanwhile, following the U.S. State Department’s comments on next month’s Venezuelan elections, Caracas cuts off a back-channel line of communications with Washington, D.C.  The Venezuelans would NEVER dream of holding corrupt or crooked elections not with Smartmatic Software and allegedly Dominion Voting Systems machines, allegedly.
  60. 2014 Thursday: Rising Asian demand for Champagne will represent increasing export growth, with Japan currently the fourth-largest export market after the U.K., the U.S. and Germany.   Meanwhile, the world is growing increasingly upset with the Russian occupation and annexation of the Crimea but there is nothing anyone will do to stop Vladimir Putin’s road to conquest.  Next, and even more perplexing, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, orders an investigation into HOW and even more important WHY the CIA ‘breached’ the U.S. Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence’s computers.[vi]  
  61. 2015 Friday: The creator of “Berry’s World,” cartoonist Jim Berry, dies at age 83.  Meanwhile, former Liberal Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Fraser (served 1975-83) dies at age 84.  Elsewhere, ISIS releases video of the executions of three Kurdish peshmerga soldiers and announces with glee that ‘there are going to be more from where those came.’  Savage sons of bitches, we need to radiate all of them.
  62. 2016 Sunday: President Barack Hussein Obama and his family arrive in Cuba for a three-day visit.  He was the first U.S. president to visit the island nation since 1928.  His visit, however, was the first by any American president since the island went communist in the 1950s so thank you, Mr. Obama, for being such a pro-Castro POS.
  63. 2017 Monday: The American psychotherapist who coined the term ‘homophobia’ dies at the age of 87.  We do not know if Dr. George Weinberg was himself a homosexual but he’s the one who crafted the term.  Meanwhile, confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia commence today.  Of course, liberals are hopping mad over the fact that their guy, Merrick Garland, never had a hearing but it is what it is.  Elsewhere, fired FBI Director James Comey is going to testify before the House Intelligence Committee today.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: Actress Cynthia Nixon from “Sex in the City” announces she will run for New York governor.  She would go down in flames to the dimwit Andrew Cuomo.  Meanwhile, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House.  Elsewhere, after allegations of rape and other sex crimes continue hammering Harvey Weinstein- close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton- the Weinstein Company files for Chapter 11 protections.
  65. 2019 Wednesday: According to the World Happiness Report, Finland is the happiest country on planet Earth while the South Sudan is the least-happiest nation.  Meanwhile, South Korean authorities arrest four scumbags for secretly filming at least 1,600 hotel guests doing the nasty and selling the footage to online Websites. Elsewhere, Disney forks out $71.3 billion to buy 21st Century Fox and all its individual parts.  Next, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras issues a ruling that HALTS oil and natural gas drilling in Wyoming.  The reason: climate change.   
  66. 2020 Friday: The Chinese Virus is sweeping across the world.  At first, health authorities- especially in the United States and Europe- were very dismissive of the Wuhan Flu whereas now, businesses are closing and a two-week mandatory order in the U.S. is enacted.  “Two weeks to flatten the curve and then life can return to normal” is the mantra.  People like the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci told us early on that masks were not important whereas now, everyone must wear them if they wish to journey out to the doctor or to big box stores.  Toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex and napkins have become a thing of the past.  The shelves of stores are being stripped clean with only foodstuffs people don’t like clinging to the shelves.
  67. 2021 Saturday: DAY 60 of the Biden Regime- stick around and find out what the fossilized Biden Regime, the Fake News Media, and the Chi-Coms are up to today- everyone knows it’s going to be good…

Michael Schenker- ever the musical gypsy- recorded his first album of covers, “Heavy Hitters,” which hit music store shelves on July 12, 2005.  Various musicians joined him for a handpicked set of 10 tunes ranging from Mountain to Cream to Black Sabbath to Pink Floyd as well as several other favorites.  This album offers the artist in a new realm of interpreting the musical works of other ‘heavy hitters,’ something that aroused his fans and brought in new ones, as well.  We hope you will visit whatever site it is you do when you seek out the best in rock music and pick it up- you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.
