- 2004 Friday: Crazed Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr declares he will employ suicide bombers against U.S. troops should they make a move on his militias in the city of Najaf.

- 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.” This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
- 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year. Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war. How sad. Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.
- 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem. Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’ Wah, wah, wah.
- 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others. Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole. Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners. There will be more funerals for them.
- 2012 Monday: The trial of former senator and vice-presidential candidate John Edwards for misuse of campaign funds gets underway in North Carolina. Elsewhere, famed bassist Chris Ethridge who played with the Flying Burrito Brothers[xi] (1968-69 / 1974-76 / 1990-93)—among other bands—lost his battle with pancreatic carcinoma on this date. He died in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi, at the age of 65. Next, the Iranians are angry because a malware attack has hammered the National Iranian Oil Company. Sucks to be you. Finally, the White House is launching an investigation into its advance staff in the wake of the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
- 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it. Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
- 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street. Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country. That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us. Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear. Plain. Simple. NOW.
- 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general. She is the first African American female to hold this post. Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover. The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi. The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle.
- 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.” Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, that would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans. However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
- 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country. The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned. Yikes.
- 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans. Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment. What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps?
- 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide. Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine. The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease but any protection is better than NO protection. Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend. Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.
- 2020 Thursday: The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet. Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735. In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries. China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries. What a bunch of lying scum. After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China. Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million. This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE. Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland.
- 2021 Friday: Stick around and find out the truth with us just as we do…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Once again, archivists for UFO combined several shows together for an enticing offering for the fans: “Impact Live” (August 14, 2017). Two of the shows come from the 1990s featuring a lineup of Phil Mogg (vocals), Michael Schenker (guitars), Pete Way (bass), Paul Raymond (keyboards/rhythm guitar), and Simon Wright (drums). The other show comes from the 1970s and features Phil Mogg (vocals), Michael Schenker (guitars), Pete Way (bass), Paul Raymond (keyboards/rhythm guitar), and Andy Parker (drums). While some may debate the energy showcased here, others are excited to have more access to more shows featuring one of the all-time great veteran bands coming to us from the late 1960s. We believe there is NOTHING available today that can compare with this exciting band so why not check it out for yourselves and consider adding it to your collection- we think you will be glad you did.
