The siege ended on April 19 as fire erupted while federal agents smashed their way (or attempted to) into the compound leading to the deaths of Mr. Koresh and 78 other Davidians including many children. President Bill Clinton and his Attorney General, Janet Reno, were never charged for the crimes of killing American citizens on home soil and for using tanks, gas, and other means of murder and assault. To this day, neither has been charged with the crime of murder but this display of tyranny later led Timothy McVeigh to bomb the federal building in Oklahoma City.
- 1994 Monday: The so-called, “Brady Law,” goes into effect, which imposes a waiting period for the purchase of handguns. Elsewhere, NATO conducted its first military strike when U.S. F-16 fighters shot down four Bosnian Serb warplanes in violation of a no-fly zone over central Bosnia.

- 2013 Thursday A: Acting U.S. Treasury Secretary Neil S. Wolin stepped down from office on this date. A Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from January 25, 2013, until today. His replacement- the 76th U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew- assumed office on this date. Also, a Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from today until January 20, 2017.
- 2014 Friday: New Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi announces plans to cut government spending and use the funds to decrease taxes on individuals and regional businesses; Italy’s unemployment rate increased 0.2 percent in January to 12.9 percent. Meanwhile, in order to protect its ‘interests,’ Moscow sends troops into the Crimea.
- 2015 Saturday: The vice president of the African nation of Sierra Leone, Samuel Sam-Sumana, announces he is going to undergo a voluntary 21-day quarantine after one of his bodyguards dies of Ebola; although the disease is slowing, there is still good reason for the precautionary measures.
- 2016 Sunday: In the 36th Annual Razzles Awards, the chick flick, “Fifty Shades of Gray,” wins Worst Picture Award, Worst Actor Award, and Worst Actress Award. Amen. What a load of crap. Elsewhere, in Lake Ridge, Virginia, a brand-new female police officer, her first day on the job, is shot and killed while two other cops are wounded during a domestic violence dispute.
- 2017 Tuesday: The Trump administration announces a plan with which to increase the budget for the armed forces by 9-percent. Meanwhile, Turkey continues going after last year’s ‘coup plotters’ against thug dictator Erdogan with more than 300 people scooped up, stuffed into prisons outside Ankara, there to await trial on charges of attempted murder and other crimes. This is all bogus, the Turkish government is cleaning house on those who support democracy and free elections.
- 2018 Wednesday: The ‘humanitarian’ government of Rwanda shutters the doors of 700 ‘illegal churches,’ claiming they were ‘too noisy’ and that they lacked the appropriate building permits. Meanwhile, one day after being questioned before the House Intelligence Committee, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks announces she is going to resign.
- 2019 Thursday: A summit meeting between the United States’ President Donald J. Trump and the overweight dictator of North Korea- Kim Jong Un- collapses with nothing to show for it. Meanwhile, YouTube announces it will no longer permit comments on videos featuring children as pedophiles are the ones leaving most of the comments.[vi] Elsewhere, the Israeli government announces that after more than two years of investigating Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, they have enough evidence to indict him on charges of corruption and some other bull crap. Sounds like they are learning lessons from the Democrats in the U.S.
- 2020 Friday: In the past six days of a worsening outbreak of the Kung Flu around the world, stock markets around the planet have reported a combined loss of $6 trillion of vanished wealth- and this is only the beginning. Meanwhile, in Italy, cases of the China Virus are EXPLODING as another 450 plus cases are reported which brings their tally of cases to 888. Deaths in that are approaching two dozen. Not good. Mexico, Lithuania, Nigeria, Belarus, New Zealand, Azerbaijan, and even Iceland report their first cases of this evil pandemic. Greeks in Cyprus seal the border with the Turks in Northern Cyprus, land stolen by Turkey back in the 1970s. The disease is spreading, rapidly, and it’s only a matter of time before it reaches everywhere. In other news, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocks President Donald J. Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ order. (A year later, Joe Biden would throw the southern border WIDE OPEN!)
- 2021 Sunday: CPAC enters its final day and attendees are ecstatic over the wide range of conservative speakers leading up to President Donald J. Trump. President Trump stood atop all straw polls pollsters conducted which is no surprise there. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis followed by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem came in second and third.
- 2021 Sunday A: Congressman Jim Banks calls on the GOP to continue rallying the working class in the manner in which, President Donald J. Trump did. The 45th president expanded the party, brought in the working classes, minorities, and naturalized immigrants. He can and will continue doing that while the left continues becoming the party of the insane, the freaks, the illegal aliens, and the criminals. Meanwhile, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO, tells the CPAC crowd that she will resist all overreach efforts by the Democrats everywhere she finds them. Conservative icon tells the crowd ‘be not afraid’ and to ‘always seek the truth.’
- 2021 Sunday B: Speaking of criminals, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has tapped a retired federal judge (who just happens to have ties to HIM) to investigate ALL charges of sexual harassment and abuse lodged against him by former female staffers. While very few expect anything to come of this, uh, ‘investigation,’ we would like to say this to Governor Cuomo: IF you had not tried to politicize all the aid the 45th president sent your way to combat the Chi-Com Virus and actually been honest, you might not be in the mess you are today just like had you not created a SWOLLEN head and published a book on ‘the great job YOU did fighting the virus,’ you might not be in trouble today. However, when you think you are something more than you are, the Fates have a way of coming for YOU. Return the Emmy, refund the publishers all monies paid to you and perhaps you will be able to avoid wearing an orange jump suit. Dumb ass! New York state lawmaker Alessandra Biaggi says, “Cuomo MUST GO.” Interestingly, as Cuomo continues to sink CNN won’t cover him.
- 2021 Sunday C: The California Fire Trust has filed lawsuits against PG&E for the loss of life and properties California’s annual fire season bestows on the state. We would like to suggest to the Trust that perhaps you should re-jigger your lawsuit and slap it on Governors Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown because the governors and other Democratic leadership bear more responsibility for the criminal doings within the state when it comes to maintaining (or NOT maintaining) a safe environment for all. Add to that the fact the Democratic-Socialists demand PG&E go to all renewables within the next decade and you find a utility company beset by not enough revenue to do everything demanded of it. Go after state Democrats and hold them to account before you punish PG&E.
- 2021 Sunday D: California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is not the ONLY one facing recall. No, Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón is facing the wrath of the voters, too. A transplant from San Francisco (he was TOO radical for ‘Frisco), he has broken all campaign promises by freeing violent felons, not-prosecuting felons, and avoiding going after cartels, human traffickers, and other human filth. The good people of L.A. County want to get this POS out of office ASAP. Godspeed!
- 2021 Sunday E: Ohio Senator Rob Portman, Republican, says that COVID-19 relief bill should be one of bipartisanship and not the PORKULUS the Democrats are pushing which is the current slush fund for the next four years in much the same way the ‘stimulus’ of 2008-09 was a slush fund for Democrats throughout the Obama-Biden administration. Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, urges the ‘Biden administration’ to loosen restrictions on the U.S.-Canada border which have been clamped on since the outbreak of the Wuhan Virus Crisis. We are unclear as to WHY they are still being imposed when every illegal alien and his or her brother can swarm into the United States along our border with Mexico.
- 2021 Sunday F: Dick Morris says that only 16-percent of the U.S. population has received their Chi-Vi vaccines while Joe Biden is sending $4 billion worth of U.S.-manufactured vaccines to the Third World. The 16-percent accounts for approximately 72.8-million doses of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu in the United States, mostly the first of two injections per person.
- 2021 Sunday G: In other CPAC news, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, says that President Donald J. Trump loves the country and that he has kept his word on every promise. Meanwhile, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says that the American people must just ‘say no’ when it comes to amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens hiding within the fabric of the country. Congressman Darrell Issa says that ‘the GOP is at war with Big Tech.’ He says that BIG TECH picks winners and losers and that that must change. Section 230 must be changed because it was never designed to do what BIG TECH has taken it to say- protecting them from all rebukes while allowing them to determine who can and who cannot be heard or seen. In other GOP news, the Nebraska GOP rebukes Senator Ben Sasse for going against Trump. These losers forget for whom they work.
- 2021 Sunday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 113,972,687 confirmed cases, +597,352, 2,528,535, confirmed deaths, +12,639, and 64,368,922 confirmed recoveries, +442,452. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,833,039 confirmed cases, up 71,298 from yesterday’s reporting, 517,204 confirmed deaths, UP 2,066, and 16,497,071 confirmed recoveries. Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump. Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS. NOW. NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 188,695 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S. Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag. NOT OUR PRESIDENT!
- 2021 Sunday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,565,971 confirmed cases, 52,015 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 342,574 confirmed cases, 5,024 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Iowa: currently, they have 363,090 confirmed cases, 5,471 confirmed deaths, and 315,134 confirmed recoveries. Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 773,335 confirmed cases, 5,732 confirmed deaths, and 727,779 confirmed recoveries.
- 2022 Monday: Let’s see what befalls us today…

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Formed in the late 1950s as the Hawks, the group that would come to be known as the Band evolved in 1967. Featuring four Canadians and one American, the band erupted onto the stage with their first album, “Music from the Big Pink,” (July 01, 1968). In some ways, the band was a throwback in that having performed with Bob Dylan for a lengthy time, they combined elements of acoustic folks with rock and roll with the music of the prairies, the back hills, and other American-Canadian forms in an extremely alluring package of sound. The band features Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). Their first album touched the souls of many and put them on a path to stardom, one that would take them to Woodstock in 1969 and beyond. One of the big hits was “The Weight.” We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music. You will be glad you did, of that, we guarantee.

TODAY IN HISTORY, MONDAY FEBRUARY 28, 2022, BLOG POST #4,460
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Sunday, February 28, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:
WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO
We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news. If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…
Monday, February 28, 2022:
[i] “Native Son” by Richard Wright is a book every American should read.
[ii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016. This included the members’ solo projects. We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor. Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces. Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too. Perhaps one day we will.
[iii] We are not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of Electric Light Orchestra but we hope to do it soon just as we hope to do the music of Pink Floyd, Supertramp, Jethro Tull, and some other famous British rock bands. Please remain vigilant for the day when we do. We thank you.
[iv] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind. We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.
[v] We look forward to doing the music of one of the great British invasion bands, the Dave Clark Five, at some point in the next 2-3 years. Stick around for the day we do- you will be glad you did.
[vi] Many civilized Americans believe we need to construct a Devil’s Island of sorts and leave the pedophiles to contend with one another. Others believe that as the liberal Democrats continue searching for new sources of cash infusions for their campaigns, they will try to legalize this blasphemous behavior. Shame.
FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
