- 1863 Thursday: In Mexico, as the French regime of Maximillian is under assault, at Camerone, the foundation for the French Foreign Legion’s most distinguished holiday occurs at a battered farmhouse. Three officers- led by a captain with a wooden hand- and 63 rankers- held out against a howling mob of more than 2,000 Mexicans. All day, the sun baked the ramshackle building that was becoming as porous as a kitchen sieve with all the flying lead plowing through it witnessed the deaths of most of the defenders until late in the day, the remaining five Legionnaires made the grim decision: to fix bayonets, fire their last round, and then charge out at the screeching mad attackers.

- 1904 Saturday: The ice cream cone makes its debut.
- 1915 Friday: The German army gears back up for another go at the Allies during the Second Battle of Ypres. Advancing from St. Julien, the French and British soldiers are able to impede their progress. Meanwhile, on the Eastern Front, the Germans continue pushing east through the Baltic states routing the Russian army as they go.
- 1916 Sunday: Fighting in Dublin, Ireland, ends as more than 700 rebels lay down their arms to the British occupiers. Elsewhere, the Allies continue trying to bring the German colonial forces to a decisive battle and a column crossing over from the Belgian Congo reaches Lake Victoria where they hope to trap the Germans between them and South African forces.
- 1918 Tuesday: British forces in the Middle East continue rolling up the Ottoman Turks. The Ottoman Empire was a crumbling entity, long known as the “Sick Man of Europe” because it was a jaded, hollow empire just awaiting the right set of circumstances to bring about its collapse.

- 1940 Tuesday: State boxing officials in California licensed Belle Martell as the United States’ first female prizefight referee. Elsewhere, following on the heels of the evacuation of Norway’s King Haakon, British troops begin preparing for evacuation themselves. It is clear who is going to win this fight and it’s not going to be the French and British but the Nazis.
- 1941 Wednesday: The Afrika Korps gears up for yet another assault on the port of Tobruk with heavy bombing attacks by bombers and dive bombers. The general leading this assault is Friedrich von Paulus, who would end up being transferred to the attack on the Soviet Union and would become the losing commander at Stalingrad.
- 1942 Thursday: The Japanese naval fleet consisting of three aircraft carriers and support ships is leaving the big naval base at Truk and proceeding to Port Moresby in New Guinea for the big invasion that is coming. The Imperial Japanese are determined to strangle the sea lanes to Australia and New Zealand.
- 1943 Friday: The Nazi extermination camp, Bergen-Belsen, begins construction. Elsewhere, in London, the Free Polish Government is in a quandary what with the demand for Swiss Red Cross to investigate the Katyn Forest Massacre because if they continue pushing it, the Soviets are going to cut them out of the future of Poland (which they do anyway).
- 1944 Sunday: U.S. Navy warplanes continue attacking Truk and destroying loads of Japanese warplanes. Due to severe losses among veteran pilots, the Japanese are rushing poorly trained pilots into the fight which shows the desperation afflicting them. Surrender? No way in hell.
- 1945 Monday: As Russian troops approached his Berlin Bunker, Adolf Hitler committed suicide along with his wife of one day, Eva Braun. His successor, Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz assumed power on this date and in this capacity served under his surrender to the Allies on 05-23-1945.

American air crews return to flying in supplies during the daytime as well as dropping in reinforcements while fighter planes are able to attack one AA battery position after another. Among the most important supplies dropped to the French troops was a strange gelatinous wine-substance that when combined with water became a drinkable wine. Called vinogel, French troops kept their eyes on it all day as it lay in crates between their lines and then at night launched sorties out into No-Man’s Land to retrieve as much of it as possible as well as killing as many communists as possible. The retrieval of a 16-year-old recently drafted into the People’s Army gave the defenders hope as he had no clue as to what unit he was in or what he was supposed to do.[i]
- 1956 Monday: The former 35th vice president of the United States (served January 20, 1949-to-January 20, 1953) Alben W. Barkley, died at age 78 in Lexington, Virginia, on this date. A Democrat, he served under President Harry S. Truman.

- 1973 Monday: President Richard Nixon announced the resignations of top aides, H.R. Haldeman, and John Ehrlichman, as well as that of the 68th U.S. Attorney General Richard G. Kleindienst.

- 1980 Wednesday: In London, terrorists seize the Iranian embassy.
- 1983 Saturday: Blues singer and guitarist Muddy Waters[ii] died in Westmont, Illinois, at age 70. Cause of death was heart failure, he died in his sleep.

Meanwhile, top-ranked women’s tennis player Monica Seles was stabbed in the back during a match in Hamburg, Germany, by a man who described himself as a fan of second-ranked German player Steffi Graf.

- 2009 Thursday: Chrysler files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Meanwhile, thanks to the ongoing H1N1 swine flu pandemic from communist China, Mexican President Felipe Calderon issues a partial economic shutdown for five days; you know- to flatten the curve. Elsewhere, the United Kingdom says ‘enough to combat operations in the Iraq War and that it will begin pulling its combat troops out and bring them home. Wish ours came home, too.
- 2010 Friday: The Deepwater Horizon oil spill reaches the Louisiana coast; weather officials predict that harsh weather will impede cleanup efforts. Governor Bobby Jindal, Republican, had been begging for aid from the Obama administration but none was forthcoming until the first black waves began rolling across the beach. By then, it was too late, fisheries destroyed, shrimp and crab-catcher fleets ruined for years to come. Why? Many suspect it’s because the Obama-Biden administration sought to vilify oil and natural gas so the American people would condemn fossil fuels. Thankfully, it didn’t work.
- 2011 Saturday: As the Libyan civil war continues to rage, Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi says he is ‘willing to enter into a ceasefire but BOTH sides must agree to it, not just his side.’ Sadly for the Libyan leader, his youngest son, Saif al-Arab Gaddafi and three of his children are killed in a NATO airstrike. How did we end up fighting in this war?
- 2012 Monday: After Chen Guangcheng flees house arrest, U.S. President Barack Obama refuses to comment on the blind Chinese dissident who—according to reports—went to the U.S. embassy. Meanwhile, One World Trade Center became the tallest structure in New York when it surpassed the height of the Empire State Building.
- 2013 Tuesday: Apple, Inc. initiates the largest-ever non-bank bond offering at $17 billion. Elsewhere, jihadists do what they do best and that is, they carry out a bombing on an unsuspecting population. Today, in Damascus, Syria, they set off a bomb that blows 13 people to kingdom come while living many more wishing they had gone with them. Horrible flipping people.
- 2014 Wednesday: In Clarkston, Washington, Larry Ramos—guitarist/vocalist with the Association[iii]—lost his battle with skin cancer on this date; he was 72 years-old. Meanwhile, the Yemeni army has lost at least 30 people in ongoing battles with al-Qaida thugs. Elsewhere, the Sultan of Brunei has announced the new institution of laws that would make Islamic law supreme what with floggings, amputations, and stoning of guilty folks. We won’t be visiting there anytime soon.
- 2015 Thursday: U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, announces his bid to seek the Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nomination. Elsewhere, following the seizure of a Danish-owned tanker by the Iranians, the U.S. Navy says it will escort American-flagged ships through the Strait of Hormuz to prevent further such criminal actions.
- 2016 Saturday: The Italian coast guard is plying the waters off the coast of Libya. A migrant raft jam-packed with Muslim refugees began floundering with the loss of at least 70 people and only 26 or 27 people rescued. Elsewhere, a heatwave in India continues claiming lives with 300 people so far succumbing to record temperatures. If only these poor people had air-conditioning; then again, environmentalists HATE air-conditioning, believing it WRECKS the environment. Dumb asses.
- 2017 Sunday: At a pool party in San Diego, California, a pool party goes up in smoke as a shooter kills one person outright, wounds another seven and then is shot and killed by the police.

Meanwhile, in Baghdad, the criminal court sentences a load of women from several different countries to life in prison for purportedly belonging to ISIS. The tally included 19 Russians, six Azerbaijani, and four Tajikistani women. Life is going to be rough for them.
- 2019 Tuesday: Japan’s Emperor Akihito announces he is stepping down at an abdication ceremony in Tokyo, effective the following day. Naruhito will be the new emperor. Elsewhere, Canada expresses its outrage over the second of its citizens condemned to death in the People’s Republic of China this year. Fan Wei received the sentence for his supposed production of and transportation of methamphetamine. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expresses his anger while pleading for clemency.
- 2020 Thursday: Thanks to the Kung Flu trashing the United States, another 3.6 million unemployment claims pushes total unemployment numbers for Americans over 30 million. AND the Chinese find offense in the growing world anger directed towards them! Millions of people around the world now believe that COVID-19 was something deliberately released onto the world following Beijing being forced to sign the new U.S.-China Trade Accord. We shall see. Current numbers for the Wuhan Virus Crisis Pandemic for the world rest at 3,249,022 confirmed cases what with 230,804 confirmed deaths but 1,006,112 confirmed recoveries. Meanwhile, in the United States, confirmed cases rest at 1,079,780, confirmed deaths stand at 62,603 but confirmed recoveries are 127,950. Additionally, more states are beginning to release restrictions and businesses are beginning to reopen. However, in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom issues a new order today in which all beaches along the state’s enormous coastline are now closed. (Gavin, if you close the beaches, we will go to the mountains, the lakes, the forests, even the deserts to disobey your authoritarian orders). In addition to this, we now know that Gov. Newsom is spending $1 billion in communist China to purchase (shoddy) PPE items for the state. F**king China lover.

The band featured an amalgam of his musical friends including vocalist Graham Bonnet, Gary Barden, Robin McAuley, and Doogie White plus his usual rhythm section adding the power punch that this mad axman requires to light stages ablaze and melt the minds of his beloved fans.
