Elsewhere, in French Indochina, the French Union forces fighting against the Viet Minh at Dien Bien Phu have a new problem.

Instead this horrible war will drag on for nearly a decade.

Not only is Yassin blown to bits, so are his two bodyguards and at least nine ‘innocent bystanders.’ All in a day’s work.
- 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.

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.

- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 Afghans want him so they can dish out justice but for now, he is being held in solitary confinement at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 2021 Monday: Stick around to discover what is happening today…
