- 1923 Wednesday: France announced it would seize the Rhineland to help Germany pay its debts from World War I. This would be yet another massive slap in the face to the German people that would open their ears to the song of Adolf Hitler. Stupid, stupid policy.
- 1939 Tuesday: The test flight of the first rocket plane using liquid propellants takes place on this date in Germany.
- 1940 Thursday: The 53rd U.S. Secretary of War Harry Hines Woodring, a Democrat, left office on this day. He served under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt from September 25, 1936, until today. Meanwhile, as the Germans continue their advance through France to keep the pressure on Paris, the French negotiators prepare to leave for Compiegne where the Nazis have brought the railroad car that the Kaiser’s representatives were forced to sign the German surrender in World War I. Adolf Hitler is jubilant as revenge has been on his mind for 21 years. He wants the French humiliated worse than what Imperial Germany had to suffer.
- 1941 Friday: The U.S. military replaced the Army Air Corps with the U.S. Army Air Forces. In 1947, the military abolished the Air Corps by creating the United States Air Forces. Elsewhere, the Germans and their Axis allies in Eastern Europe are preparing to launch the largest land invasion in the history of the world in two days. Air crews are receiving their briefings, artillery targets are being registered, and the 1.5 million troops ready to cross the frontier into the Soviet Union are enjoying their final days of rest. War is coming and the Soviets are dozing on the other side of the border.
- 1942 Saturday: The Afrika Korps conquers Tobruk in North Africa. Meanwhile, Nazi Adolf Eichmann announces the deportation of Dutch Jews.

In the United States, future Beach Boy[i], Brian Wilson, is born in Inglewood, California.
- 1943 Sunday: Race-related rioting erupted in Detroit; the governor sent in federal troops two days later to quell the violence that resulted in more than 30 deaths. Elsewhere, the tide of war is definitely turning against the European Axis partners as Britain’s King George VI is able to visit the stubborn island of Malta that held out for so long against Axis assaults.
- 1944 Tuesday: The Nazis begin the mass extermination of all Jews at Auschwitz Death Camp. Meanwhile, the Allies are advancing on all fronts in Europe. On the Leningrad Front, the Soviets are advancing while the Allies are advancing in France and Italy. Fighting is fierce. Elsewhere during World War II, Japanese naval forces retreated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea after suffering heavy losses to the American fleet. On Saipan, American forces continue battering the Japanese defenders who cling tenaciously to every scrap of geography. It is victory or it’s death for them.
- 1945 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the fights for Okinawa, the Philippines, and Borneo. Meanwhile, a U.S. carrier force is softening up the Imperial Japanese forces clinging to Wake Island, one of the first places to fall to Japan shortly after the war began. The Japanese have been sidelined here as recapturing the island did not fit in the main war plan of taking the fight TO JAPAN so the Japanese troops defending Wake are in dire straits.
- 1946 Thursday: The Big Four- the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union agree to begin the gradual withdrawal of Allied occupation forces from Italy. The Soviets also agree to withdraw their troops from Bulgaria which although on the side of the Axis during World War II did not participate in Operation Barbarossa and also have traditionally been a Russian ally. Still, they will be a part of the communist bloc. It is what it is…
- 1947 Friday: Mob hitmen shot Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel dead at the Beverly Hills mansion of his girlfriend, Virginia Hill, apparently at the order of Mob associates. Meanwhile, President Harry Truman vetoes the Taft-Hartley Act.

- 1994 Monday: The authorities arraign O.J. Simpson for the murders of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman. Before the judge, he pleaded not guilty to the crime. Elsewhere, former airman Dean Allen Mellberg went on a shooting rampage at Fairchild Air Force Base near Spokane, Washington, killing four people and wounding 22 others before being killed by a military police sharpshooter.
- 1997 Friday: Lawrence Peyton- longtime vocalist with the Motown group, the Four Tops[v], 1953-1997, died on this date in Southfield, Michigan.
- 2007 Wednesday: Military operations in the eastern portion of Sri Lanka continue carrying out actions against the infamous Tamil Tigers, killing at least 30 of their soldiers. Elsewhere, Australia’s Prime Minister John Howard announces that the nation is going to buy three warships and two landing craft from Spain to beef up their navy.
- 2008 Friday: Like poor Tibet, Nepal also is coming under the sway of the Chi-Coms which leads to massive protests in front of the Chi-Com embassy. At least 700 Tibetans were there among the crowd, all of whom were arrested with three being slapped with charges of ‘anti-Chi-Com activities.’ Folks, who runs Nepal? The government of that nation or Beijing? I think the world knows the answer.
- 2009 Saturday: As the Arab Spring continues growing across the Muslim world, riot police in Tehran are finding their hands full with mobs of protesters demanding changes in their dictatorial regime. This is ONE country that new President Barack Hussein Obama won’t provide help. Elsewhere, jihadists near Kirkuk, Iraq, get lucky with a suicide bombing that propels 67 people up to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving at least another 200 in varying stages of suffering. That’s the ‘religion of peace’ for you…
- 2010 Sunday: The Chicago Journal reports it’s been a busy weekend in President Barack Hussein Obama’s adopted hometown of the Windy City what with 40 people shot and seven of them dead. Halfway across the world, similar issues are occurring in central Baghdad what with two car bombings ejecting at least 26 passersby up to meet with Allah sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving another 53 in varying stages of distress.
- 2011 Monday: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers grants private companies the right to create new website domains and suffixes. Elsewhere, the Anglican Church in England considers permitting openly gay clergy members to become bishops. Well. Elsewhere, sectarian clashes break out in East Belfast, Northern Ireland, leading to numerous people being trucked off to the hospital and others to the hoosegow.
- 2012 Wednesday: Hospital authorities remove former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak–reported to be in a coma–from life support. Meanwhile, a Syrian fighter pilot lands in Jordan and the pilot seeks asylum from the ongoing civil war. Elsewhere, as southern Israel continues to brace under an ongoing barrage of (Iranian) rockets from the Palestinians, the Israeli air force begins to carry out sustained strikes on Hamas (and Iranian) targets in the region.
- 2013 Thursday: Instagram offers its users the ability to upload videos to its service. Elsewhere, the Committee on the Rights of the Child accuses E-V-I-L Israeli soldiers of torturing Palestinian children and using the poor little bastards as human shields. (Note- what a crock of crap!). Elsewhere, the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 4 games to 3 by a final score of 95-88 successfully defending their title from the previous year. Knuckle-dragging cretin LeBron James is declared the MVP for the second year in a row.
- 2014 Friday: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiates a 7-day cease-fire, allowing troops to defend themselves but not to attack; during the cease-fire, separatists can turn in weapons and receive amnesty; so far, rebels have rejected the offer. Elsewhere, the Obama administration rushes 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help that government’s forces battle the ISIS thugs in the oil-refining city of Baiji. Light these scum-sucking bastards UP.
- 2015 Saturday: After white racist Dylann Storm Roof murders nine African Americans at the church in South Carolina earlier in the week, mass protests break out demanding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Capitol building. Meanwhile, in southern Pakistan, a heat wave peaks killing at least 2,000 people from heat stroke and dehydration. Elsewhere, in Japan, one-thousand female robots named “Pepper” sell out in under one minute at $1,600 per unit; so says creator SoftBank Robotics Corp.
- 2016 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court- noting that it has already reviewed other such bans on ‘assault weapons’ (ALL weapons are ‘assault weapons’ whether they be a gun or a screwdriver or even fists)- refuses to hear other states’ bans such as Connecticut and New York. What we need is a universal permit to carry arms, both out in the open and concealed. Cleansing the nation of ‘gun-free zones’ would also enhance the safety of every American. Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that the number is higher than ever what with endless wars, climate disasters, and economic impoverishment: 65.3 million people (which the Democrats want to bring to the U.S.)
- 2017 Tuesday: Following his arrest for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods checks into a rehab clinic to deal with his pain medication dependency and his ongoing sleep disorders. Elsewhere, as outrage continues to grow over the death of 22-year-old American tourist Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean jailers, Young Pioneers Tours, the firm taking foreigners into the hellhole known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea says it ‘won’t be taking any other Americans into that godforsaken country as the risk is simply too high.’ (Note- if you remember, young Mr. Warmbier visited the nation, removed a poster from a hotel room wall for a souvenir and then underwent arrest, a bulls**t trial, imprisonment, and just before he died, Kim Jong Un sent his catatonic body home to his parents).
- 2018 Wednesday: Bowing to pressure from his political enemies and armies of wailing illegal aliens, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order ending separation of families at the border, a policy that began under the previous administration but which no one conveniently remembers. Meanwhile (and this is a good one!), the Chi-Coms express their regrets that the United States is withdrawing from the bulls**t U.N. Human Rights Council. With dictators, thugs, criminals, and communists making up its membership, the organization is little more than a joke.
- 2019 Thursday: Leader of communist China, Xi Jinping, travels to North Korea to visit with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, the first Chinese leader to travel to the S-hole country in 14 years. In other news, the Iranians commit an overt act of war when their military shoots down a U.S. surveillance drone which they claim trespassed into their airspace. Almost immediately, the military-industrial-political complex in the United States as well as Democrats and pro-war RINOs begin banging the drum for President Donald J. Trump to launch yet another unnecessary Middle Eastern war. Wow.
- 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump kicked off his official 2020 re-election bid with a massive rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. What a barn burner, he seems unstoppable. Moving on, here are today’s stats for the Xi Jinping special Wuhan bat flu virus, first the globe: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries. In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 762 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 640 confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for the CHOP state, Washington: 28,163 confirmed cases, 1,265 confirmed deaths, but sadly, like California, moron Gov. Jay Inslee will NOT REPORT the number of confirmed recoveries.
- 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army would immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor. The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent. Good for you, President al-Sissi!
- 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant. Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side. He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army. It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination. Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum. This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November. VOTE TRUMP!
- 2021 Sunday: Folks, today is Sunday, Father’s Day Sunday, let’s hope it’s a slow news day as all the baby mamas will bring all their bastard brats to meet their daddies doing time in America’s hoosegows, today.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Ian Anderson finally got the record label to give him a solo project without forcing him to label it a ‘Jethro Tull’ album. “Walk into Light” came out on December 05, 1983 and it was a two-man band: Ian Anderson (all instruments) and Peter John Vettese (keyboards, synthesizers, and backing vocals). Fans enjoy the mellow sounds and smooth flow of music which as always sparkles and shines with Anderson’s wit. He and Vettese co-wrote many of the tracks so in many ways, it is more a collaborative album than it is a ‘solo effort.’ We hope everyone will seek this one out and consider adding it to your growing record collection- we think you will be glad you did. Enjoy.
