They are dropping napalm to expose the artillery and antiaircraft batteries as well as the troop concentration zones so as to disrupt them.

- 1994 Wednesday: Aeroflot Flight 593, an Airbus A310, crashed in Siberia with the loss of all 75 people aboard it; it turned out that the one of the pilots allowed his teenage son to sit at the controls accidentally disengaged the autopilot, causing the jetliner to plunge to the ground.

- 2015 Monday: After combatting the effects of pneumonia for several weeks, Lee Kuan Yew—91-year-old founder of the nation of Singapore and its leader for 31 years—died. Elsewhere, the Pentagon is busy alerting U.S. servicemembers who are on an ISIS hit list.

Elsewhere, police in Brussels, Belgium, identify two of the attackers in the recent attacks on a subway station and an airport as a pair of homegrown jihadist brothers. The search is on for a third man, the reputed ISIS bomber lurking somewhere within the country. Track him down and KILL him. Meanwhile, a U.S. airstrike on an al-Qaida camp in the lovely country of Yemen kills dozens of jihadists.
- 2017 Thursday: American singer and actress Lola Albright dies at age 92. Elsewhere, loony tunes Congressman Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, in an interview with equally insane ‘news man’ Chuck Todd told his open-mouthed interviewer that ‘there is more than circumstantial evidence that associates of President Trump- if not the president himself!– colluded with Russian President Vladimir Putin to steal the 2016 Presidential Election from the highly popular Hillary Rodham Clinton (yeah, right. In your dreams, congressman, in your dreams. Moron). However, Senator John McCain, RINO-AZ, says that ‘Congress lacks the credibility itself to investigate such charges.’ Yikes.
- 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump released an order banning most transgender troops from serving in the military except under “limited circumstances.” Meanwhile, the online classified ads site Craigslist removed its personals section; the action came after the U.S. Senate passed an anti-sex-trafficking bill that could hold the website and others responsible for illegal activity.

A year later, the Italian people are wondering why they are Ground Zero for China’s Wuhan Virus outbreak in Europe. Meanwhile, with the raising of Syrian Democratic Forces flag over the Syrian city of Baghuz, civilized people proclaim the vanquishing of the ISIS caliphate. The terrorist scum had held the area for five bloody years.
- 2020 Monday: Due to illness and self-quarantine, the Republican-controlled Senate is not in control with only 48 members present. The Democrats under Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, at the behest of Speaker Nancy Pelosi will NOT pass a bill designed to protect the country’s economy while providing support to the afflicted unless Republicans sign on to more Obamacare-like government-run medical claptrap as well as all manner of identity politics desires, Green New Deal insanity, increased protections for illegal aliens, and additional Pro-Death protections. As of the time of this publishing, the GOP was still holding out, hoping the Dems would regain their senses and stop with the insanity but oh, no, they simply won’t surrender their partisan politics. COVID-19 statistics: earlier in the day, there were 354,677 known cases of the Chinese Virus what with the number of infections up in previous 24 hours standing at 21,115; total known deaths are 15,430, up 940 in 24 hours.

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
UFO came back on September 26, 2006 with its next studio album, “The Monkey Puzzle,” a superb rocker to be sure flavored with their unique blend of rock-and-roll. The band was close to being original in that it featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Pete Way (bass/vocals), Paul Raymond (guitars/keyboards/vocals), Andy Parker (drums), and Vinnie Moore (guitars). If you know anything about this band, you know they are one of the survivors from the glorious days- 1960s and 1970s- UFO coming along at the end of the ‘60s and continuing until modern times which puts them into a category with only the Rolling Stones and part-time Who. Oh, yeah, Deep Purple remains with us, too, and years ago at the Google site, we spent close to a year presenting their music. Thus, we are proud to share UFO with our WordPress.com fans. Join us and celebrate, too! You can find this album at Amazon.com as well as at Discogs, AllMusic, and other online venues…
