- 1912 Friday: British explorer Robert Falcon Scott, his doomed expedition stranded in an Antarctic blizzard after failing to be the first to reach the South Pole, wrote the last words of his journal: “For God’s sake, look after our people!”
- 1913 Saturday: The Reichstag announced a raise in taxes to fund a new military budget.
- 1932 Tuesday: Jack Benny debuts on radio on Ed Sullivan’s New York Interview program.
- 1936 Sunday: Nazi propaganda claims 99% of Germans voted for Nazi candidates.
- 1940 Friday: Joe Louis knocks out Johnny Paycheck in 2 to retain heavyweight-boxing title. Elsewhere, Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov announces that the Soviet Union ‘will remain neutral in the war between Nazi Germany and France and Britain.’ Boy, does he have a surprise coming his way in June 1941. Speaking of the Soviets, they are looking to nick off Bessarabia from Rumania which will put the Rumanians in the Axis camp.
- 1941 Saturday: As the British continue pushing through Ethiopia on the way to liberate the capital of Addis Ababa from the Fascist Italians, Italian civilians- who have no love for the war imposed upon them by Il Duce- are begging for protection from the British. Renegade Askari troops are running amok murdering, raping, and torturing Italians wherever they find them.
- 1942 Sunday: Things are dire for the British indeed when they begin floating the idea of granting independence to their crown colony of India following a successful conclusion to World war II. They desperately need Indian colonial troops to help them prosecute the war on all fronts. Meanwhile, the RAF bomber command begins attacking civilian targets in Germany. The strategy is to harm the civilian population as much as possible with the idea of driving them to take down the Nazi government. Of course, this will never happen and the German people will suffer horribly at the hands of their enemies.
- 1943 Monday: World War II rationing of meat, fats, and cheese began across the United States. Meanwhile, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Chad Allan—multi-instrumentalist with Chad Allan and the Expressions, the band that would become the Guess Who[ii]—is born. Elsewhere, the British Admiralty is weighing a difficult decision- do they suspend aid convoys to their new allies, the Soviet Union, because they lack the naval and long-range air assets to protect the convoys heading to Arctic Russian ports or do they continue sending supplies and losing precious ships and personnel?
- 1944 Wednesday: Imperial Japanese forces continue trying to invest the eastern Indian city of Imphal, perhaps one of their worst-planned, self-inflicted military disasters yet. When they should have been withdrawing their forces to points further east to defend the territories nearer to home conquered by them in late 1941-mid-1943, they have the idea that the people of India will join them in destroying the British. This won’t happen- the Brits promised the Indian people their independence.
- 1945 Thursday: During World War II, March 29 is the final day Nazi Germany launches B-1 attacks against Great Britain while the Soviet Army on the Eastern Front mauls the German 4th Army to the point that it no longer is battle-worthy. In Hungary, as the Germans continue being forced back by the Red Army, Hungarian troops are deserting in droves and joining with the Reds. They must do what they must to survive this horrendous conflict. Still, the Germans can dish out a harsh mauling here and there.
- 1949 Tuesday: Turkey recognizes Israel. When they were still a FREE democratic republic, the Turks were great people and were friendly with much of the world. Fifty years later or so when the dictator would come and make the country into a junior partner of the Islamist school of thought, all of this would go out the window.
- 1951 Thursday: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg suffer conviction for espionage and in 1953, the couple will meet their end in the electric chair.
- 1954 Monday: The French paratroopers under the command of Major Marcel Bigeard manage to destroy numerous People’s Army antiaircraft artillery pieces which allows for French air assets to bring in supplies and reinforcements and to take out several hundred wounded soldiers. Meanwhile, the command structure in Dien Bien Phu comes to the harsh decision that road clearing operations between the main camp and Isabelle to the south is becoming a costly daily battle for the troops. Isabelle will have to rely on air drops from whatever planes can penetrate the AA batteries surrounding them. Still, the French have no intention of giving in to the communists.
- 1961 Wednesday: After a 4-year trial, Nelson Mandela wins acquittal on treason charges. In the U.S., the 23rd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution passes ratification thereby allowing the residents of Washington, D.C., to vote in presidential elections.
- 1962 Thursday: Jack Paar hosted NBC’s “Tonight” show for the final time, although the network aired a repeat the following night. Johnny Carson debuted as host the following October. Meanwhile, communist authorities ordered the trials of the failed Bay of Pigs participants in Cuba.
- 1964 Sunday: In Las Vegas, Nevada, future Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto is born. She would enter the world’s greatest deliberative body on January 03,
- 1966 Tuesday: Muhammad Ali beats George Chuvalo in 15 for heavyweight boxing title. Ali improved his pro record to 23-0 by beating the Canadian heavyweight in a unanimous decision. In so doing, he retained the WBC, the NYSAC, and the Ring Magazine heavyweight boxing titles. Chuvalo in his loss to Ali saw his record drop to 34-12-2. Still, he went the distance with the Greatest.
- 1971 Monday: Army 1st Lt William L Calley, Jr. found guilty in the My Lai (Vietnam) Massacre. The military tribunal convicted Lt. Calley of 22 deaths and sentenced him to serve three years of house arrest. Meanwhile, a jury in Los Angeles, California, recommended the death penalty for Charles Manson and three female followers for the 1969 Tate-La Bianca murders; however, a judge later commuted the sentences.
- 1973 Thursday: The last United States combat troops left South Vietnam, ending America’s direct military involvement in the Vietnam War. In an address to the nation, President Richard Nixon declared, “For the first time in 12 years, no American military forces are in Vietnam.”
- 1974 Friday: A court indicted eight Ohio National Guardsmen on federal charges stemming from the shooting deaths of four students at Kent State University; however, the court later dropped the charges. Elsewhere, Mariner 10, the U.S. space probe, became the first spacecraft to reach the planet Mercury. NASA launched it on November 03, 1973.

- 1994 Tuesday: Serbs and Croats signed a cease-fire to end the war in Croatia.
- 1999 Monday: The DOW Jones Industrial Average closes above 10,000 points for the first time in history, coming in at 10,006.78. Investors are giddy.

- 2002 Friday: Due to the recent Passover massacre in Israel, the Israeli Defense Forces gear up to launch Operation Defensive Shield against Palestinian militants wherever they can locate and liquidate the thugs. This will be their largest military operation since the Six-Day War back in 1967. Wipe ‘em out, boys, wipe ‘em out.
- 2003 Saturday: Thanks to the Chi-Coms, SARS- Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome- is running amok in different parts of the world. In the Canadian city of Toronto, health authorities report at least 100 cases due to loads of Chinese going back and forth.
- 2004 Monday: Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia joined NATO as full members, welcomed into the organization by President George W. Bush at the White House. Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com bullying, the nation of Dominica withdraws its diplomats from the Republic of China- Taiwan- and sends them to Beijing. Cowards. Meanwhile, scientists are all agog at having found methane in the Martian atmosphere which means there could be organic processes occurring on the Red Planet. We suspect there are- where’s there water, folks, there’s life and where there’s life, there’s methane.
- 2005 Tuesday: In war-devastated Iraq- thanks to the Bush-Cheney administration- three Romanian journalists undergo kidnapping by violent jihadists. Although these poor souls face having their heads lopped off, it’s clearer that the scumbags holding them want to charge a massive ransom for their safe return. We shall see.
- 2006 Wednesday: Christian convert Abdul Rahman flees Afghanistan and receives asylum in Italy. Multitudes of Afghan clerics and government officials demand his extradition back to his home country so they can show him what Islamic ‘justice’ is.
- 2007 Thursday: Once again, a militant hegemonic Iran is up to no good. The U.N. Security Council is wagging a finger at them in ‘grave, grave concern’ over the Iranian Revolutionary Guard capturing and imprisoning 15 British Royal Navy and Marines they claim entered their territorial waters. Time to drop some neutron bombs on these sand maggots.
- 2008 Saturday: Liberals are creaming their pants around the world as today is EARTH HOUR, a time in which, slobbering liberals encourage everyone to go without ALL nonessential power between the hour of 8-9:00 P.M. local time. This will show those dastardly energy-guzzling scumbags like Senator John F. Kerry, D-MA.
- 2009 Sunday: At a nursing home in Carthage, North Carolina, a POS gunman goes on a rampage killing at least 8 people and wounding another 3. Democrats immediately begin screaming for ‘GUN CONTROL! CONFISCATE ALL GUNS! DESTROY THE NRA!’ To be expected, every time some schmuck uses a gun for evil.
- 2010 Monday: At least 38 people die and 60 suffer injuries when two female suicide bombers carry out two separate terrorist attacks at Moscow Metro stations Lubyana and Park Kultury. Elsewhere, in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi and her political movement, the National League for Democracy, announces that it will boycott the upcoming elections because of the corruption of their government.
- 2011 Tuesday: James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis calls for the Federal Reserve to limit its purchase of U.S. Treasuries because they ‘feed the fire’ of inflation. Meanwhile, from one end of the Near and Middle East to the other, people are running amok during the ‘Arab Spring.’ Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is assuming control of the entire government after two weeks of violent protests.
- 2012 Thursday: In New Delhi, India, leaders of Brazil, Russia, China, South Africa, and India meet for the 2012 BRICS summit. Elsewhere, in San Pedro Sula prison in Honduras, inmates run amok and at least 13 people are slain in the violence.
- 2013 Friday: New research on the Shroud of Turin supports that it may been used as Jesus Christ’s burial cloth; researchers used mechanical and thermal measurements to date the shroud between 300 BC and 400 AD. Elsewhere, in Peshawar, Pakistan, a vehicle bomb explodes near the U.S. Embassy, killing 10 people outright and injuring at least another 35-40 people.
- 2014 Saturday: Russia makes assurances that the country will not invade Ukraine in its efforts to resolve the dispute over its annexation of Crimea.

- 2015 Sunday: To combat the ISIS thugs, Egyptian President Fattah al-Sisi announces that moderate Arab states will begin allowing their militaries to work with one another since Barack Obama cut off aid to Egypt, Jordan, and others. Saudi Arabia has already been battling Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen. Meanwhile, Pakistan is sending a Boeing 747 to evacuate its diplomats and civilians out of that crumbling country.
- 2016 Tuesday: Due to increasing strife and chaos along the southern border of Turkey with Iraq, the U.S. State Department as well as the Pentagon begin ordering all diplomatic and military personnel to evacuate. ISIS is continuing to run amok in Syria butchering and killing people all over the place so in order to avoid an international incident, it’s time to begin withdrawing U.S. personnel. We’d hate to go to war in Syria, right (or have we already been fighting there)? Elsewhere, Breitbart News reports that Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is charged with battery for allegedly having pushed their reporter, Michelle Fields, away from his candidate on March 08. What a load of crap.
- 2017 Wednesday: Britain filed for divorce from the European Union as Prime Minister Theresa May sent a six-page letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk. Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump assumes a position as an unpaid advisor to her father, President Donald J. Trump. Elsewhere, jihadists continue running amok in Iraq as a suicide bomber targets a police roadblock. The subsequent explosion kills 15 people outright and injures at least another 40 poor souls.
- 2018 Thursday: Because the U.S. Department of Homeland Security failed to notify screened asylum seekers that their one-year time frame for requesting asylum was going to end, thus prompting the illegals to hurry up with their claims, Judge Ricardo S. Martinez orders the DHS to give the ‘asylum seekers’ another year to file their applications and also orders the DHS to fix their rules. Meanwhile, the 2018 Major League Baseball season gets underway.
- 2019 Friday: Democratic politician Lucy Flores accuses former vice president and presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden of an ‘inappropriate kiss.’ Oh, well; it’s not the first time. Elsewhere, a judge in the Cayman Islands, a judge throws out a law stipulating that marriage is between one man and one woman and thus legalizes with the stroke of a pen gay marriage. And another one bites the dust.
- 2020 Sunday: Thanks to the Wuhan Flu leaving China and enveloping the world, the number of confirmed global cases sits at 718,685 what with 33,881 confirmed deaths from the virus. Meanwhile, in the United States, we know of 139,675 cases with at least 2,436 deaths. China continues trying to alleviate itself of the sole responsibility as creators of this horrendous virus but everyone knows the communists sitting pretty in Beijing are the culprits and that when the crisis passes, they will be held to account for it. Shame on them: your plan to take out President Trump by ruining the global economy is a complete failure.
- 2021 Monday: You know the drill- stick around and find out the news of the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The Michael Schenker Group released a 4-CD retrospective live album featuring three complete shows recorded in the early 1980s when he had just formed his solo band. “The Mad Axman Live” came out on October 13, 2007. Joining the legendary German guitarist are well-known and much beloved members of his solo band: vocalist Gary Barden, Chris Glen (bass), Andy Nye and Paul Raymond (keyboards), and Ted McKenna and Cozy Powell (drums). Always a wild rocker, Schenker puts on one hell of a great show and these three shows encapsulated on four discs- albeit five-star bootleg quality- are well worth whatever price eBay might be charging for it, which at the time of this writing was running around $80.00. We hope you will seek this one out because the man and his band have been with us for a long, long time. You will enjoy this album so please, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in rock music- you can thank us later.

TODAY IN HISTORY, MONDAY MARCH 29, 2021
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Monday, March 29, 2021:
[i] The young United States should have taken ALL of Mexico down through the Central American countries to where the southern end of Panama meets the northern end of Colombia. Had we done that, we would have solved the issue of illegal immigration. We should have also taken Cuba in 1898 and kept her just as we should have gone back and taken Canada. What a glorious nation we would have, one now being overrun with Third World illegal aliens.
[ii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.. The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017. We hope you will check them out.
[iii] 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.
