- 1915 Sunday: During World War I, Czarist forces continue trying to fight through the Carpathian Mountains and some of them are able to capture some outlying towns. Still, the Kaiser cannot permit his main ally- and the reason for having gone to the war in the first place because of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and his wife Sophie- to be knocked out of the war as it would leave Imperial Germany open to invasion from the south. On the Southeastern Front- Russian forces are driving into Armenia in the hopes of liberating their fellow Christians from a repressive Ottoman Empire (as well as to add additional territory to their domain).
- 1916 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate agrees by a vote of 82-6 to join the side of the Allies in World War I. Meanwhile, on the Western Front, all eyes are fixed on Verdun. The death toll is horrendous for both the German attackers and the French defenders. The loss of life in this terrible battle would cause some French units to refuse to fight. Elsewhere, on the Southeastern Front where the Russians are fighting a series of battles from the Carpathian Mountains to Armenia, the Czar makes a change in command- General Aleksei Brusilov in place of General Nicolay Iudovich Ivanov. Soon, General Brusilov would design the so-called “Brusilov Offensive” that would almost knock the Central Powers to their knees.
- 1917 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate voted 90-6 to enter World War I on the Allied side. This would drive the Germans to launch a major offensive all across the Western Front in the hopes of pulverizing both the British and French forces before any American help can arrive. Still, the ravages of hunger and in some places, starvation, is threatening all sides as the farmlands every nation depended upon for food have become battlefields. The German U-Boats are trying to starve Britain while British warships continue trying to keep the Central Powers unable to import any outside foodstuffs. Civilians are becoming desperate everywhere.
- 1918 Thursday: The Germans are launching all-out assaults on the Western Front along the Somme and Avre Rivers, the goal once again to knock the Allies out before all is lost. The Imperial German forces have been able to bring most of their troops from Eastern Europe for one last push although they have to make sure the Russians stick to the agreement, they hammered out with Berlin in exchange for not having substantial portions of their western territories like the Ukraine kept as war booty.
- 1919 Friday: Allied troops continue fighting with White Russian forces to subdue the cancer of communism that is engulfing Russia, Eastern Europe, and even popping up in parts of eastern Germany where the authorities have their hands full. The Germans are in dire straits, being blamed for the entire war when they were not the ones who started it; no, they came to the aid of their Austro-Hungarian allies and the rest is history as they say.

Most of them would get five years in prison while others would be let go. Tensions are growing and with threat of a HOT WAR only weeks away, the French want to eliminate internal problems.
- 1941 Friday: The Afrika Korps conquers the Fascist Italian, North African port of Benghazi, Libya, driving the British into headlong retreat. German and Italian motorized columns roll through the streets and jubilant civilians celebrate their arrival. Elsewhere, as Germans move towards Yugoslavia, Adolf Hitler also approves a plan for the Nazis to aid their fumbling Italian allies and knock Greece out of the fight.

- 2005 Monday: Palestinians in the West Bank are going berserk today when word has it that Israel is going to begin dumping 10,000 tons of garbage in landfills in the area. Of course, the Palestinians claim it’s going to foul their water supply and that it’s a breach of international treaties and the like. We say, ‘shut up, when you stop treating your citizens like garbage, urging them to commit acts of jihad, maybe the Israelis won’t treat YOU like garbage.’ (Note- Moses Scharbug III is responsible for this opinion). Elsewhere, insurgents in Iraq launch an attack on Abu Ghraib prison to free their jihadist brethren injuring American and Iraqi troops and jailers. The guards are able to fight the scumbags off.

- 2007 Wednesday: As House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues her ‘listening trip’ across the Middle East, the Israelis are having none of it, especially since she visited Syrian mass murdered President Bashar al-Assad the previous day. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert blasts “Mumbles” for the Syrian trip saying that it was a ‘major mistake.’ He also denies that the befuddled Democrat politician handed him a ‘peace proposal.’ If she did, she probably forgot it a day later.

- 2009 Saturday: Costa Rica, Malaysia, and the Philippines find themselves in trouble today. You ask why? Well, the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development blacklists them for being tax havens where the wealthy can hide their money. What is wrong with that: We all want to be able to do that… elsewhere, in North Waziristan, Pakistan, a U.S. drone strike whacks 13 jihadists convening with one another. Yikes.
- 2010 Sunday: In the mine rescue in Shanxi, China, rescuers pull out 114 miners after pulling out the other 39 or so the previous day. These poor souls have been trapped down there for more than a week, so God bless them for rescuing these poor workers. Elsewhere, the war in Iraq continues to rage as Islamist thugs set off simultaneous car bombs outside the German, Iranian, and Egyptian embassies. Many people on the street are killed or injured.
- 2011 Monday: Reports claim that China has successfully modified cows to produce ‘human milk’. People- does this not scare the living f**k out of you? What the hell is this communist hellhole doing? Enough is enough. Meanwhile, the Israelis have their hands full with the Arab Spring as the Palestinians are causing havoc along the border with Gaza and their country. Israeli warplanes are crisscrossing Palestinian airspace letting them know that if they step out of line, they are going to light them up.

Elsewhere- we hate to say this, some nations were better off under colonialism– a suicide bomber attacks the National Theater in the Somali capital of Mogadishu while a ceremony was underway killing at least 10 people and wounding God knows how many others.

Elsewhere, in a smart move, the South Korean military test fires some ballistic missiles that they hope with some improvements will be able to hit any target in the territory of their northern neighbor, North Korea. Meanwhile, in West Africa, the rampaging Ebola epidemic has killed at least 90 people in Guinea and Liberia and now the first case has appeared in Mali.
- 2015 Saturday: Syrian and other Middle Eastern refugees continue to flood across the Mediterranean with the Italian navy rescuing 1,500 over the past 24 hours. The only way to halt this insanity is for the Europeans to begin sinking the refugee vessels. Meanwhile, the United States Army in the Obama era (it would have to be) is probing allegations that its members committed sexual assaults while deployed there between 2003-2007. Ah, the Bush-Cheney years, that’s Barack Hussein Obama for you.
- 2016 Monday: Vietnam says, ‘enough is enough’ when it comes to Chi-Com intrusions into their fishing waters with their ‘fishing fleets’ which in reality, are military operations. Vietnamese naval and marine assets board this ship and then take it under tow back to one of their ports. Of course, Beijing starts making all manner of threats. In the 78th NCAA Men’s National Basketball Championship, Villanova defeats North Carolina by a final score of 77-74.
- 2017 Tuesday: Syrian government forces launch a chemical weapons attack on Khan Shaykhun resulting in at least 80 civilian deaths and countless others injured.

Meanwhile, according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Chinese retail giant Alibaba becomes the world’s largest retailer. You go, China, you go.
- 2018 Wednesday: Since the U.S. Congress won’t act to do something on the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald J. Trump grasps the bull by the balls and sends the U.S. National Guard to aid struggling Customs and Border Patrol officers attempting to deal with one wave after another of illegal alien invaders. Of course, the 45th president suffers all manner of criticism for attempting to halt Democrats AND RINO Republicans’ beloved illegal aliens. Democrats want voters and RINOs like cheap labor. We say, “Militarize the southern border with minefields, antivehicle, antipersonnel, anti-boat obstacles, a massive wall, artillery positions, and even seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups. When the latter grow up, they will patrol the river…
- 2019 Thursday: The Church of Latter-Day Saints- aka the Mormon Church- promises to roll back anti-LGBTQIA+ policies which include not baptizing the children of gay parents. Bowed to pressure, did you? What a shame. Meanwhile, the governor of Guam- Lourdes “Lou” Leon Guerrero, Democrat, signs a bill permitting for the recreational use of marijuana. Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque massacres, both New Zealand and Australia pass laws prohibiting the posting of violent content online. If such content is posted, it must be removed immediately, or the service providers must face the consequences.
- 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus- straight out of Wuhan, China- continues claiming lives around the world and ruining much of the global economy. Although Beijing continues to claim that things are ‘looking really great in China,’ everyone knows this is little more than propaganda put forth by their state-run media. Shame on them. Current figures for today are more than one million confirmed cases what with more than 64,000 confirmed deaths worldwide. In the United States, there are 312,076 confirmed U.S. cases and 8,496 confirmed deaths. When this crisis ends, the world will hold the communist government of China accountable and as Chef Goldie McNamara has said, President Donald J. Trump should demand a return to the Two-China Policy of recognizing the equality of Nationalist aka Free China as a separate entity from the People’s Republic of (Communist China).
- 2021 Sunday: WOKE NEWS– first, permit us to say this- it is time that people stand up and slap the WOKE pansies in the mouth and say, “Hell, no, we are not going to permit a bunch of wimpified losers such as yourselves to tell us what we can and cannot say. Furthermore, IF you want to know where WOKE stupidity came from, it emanates from 1-2 generations of young people NEVER being told ‘NO,’ or given ‘participation trophies’ or even more importantly, a belt across their sniveling, cringing asses when they were growing up. If ever one needed an example of what happens when you spare the rod and spoil the child, this is precisely what timidity in parenting gets one.’ Okay, top GOP lawmakers say that Major League Baseball should lose its antitrust exemption over pulling the MLB All-Star Game and MLB Draft out of Georgia[vii] over the recent enactment of new voting laws. READ the law first before you run with the WOKE HERD. Speaking of ‘WOKE,’ President Donald J. Trump says that all Americans should boycott any business or industry pushing this ignorant WOKE agenda. God bless you, sir. In other WOKE news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, condemns Coca-Cola’s® opposition to the new election laws in the Peach State. NO MORE Coca-Cola® for us, folks. Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he wishes ‘everyone an incredibly happy Easter, including all the left-wing crazies’ out there running amok.
- 2021 Sunday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– Pakistan is struggling to stop its citizens from smuggling in oil from Iran. Every now and then, someone makes a mistake and blows everyone sky high from tapping into pipelines or tanker trucks. Next, the crown prince of Jordan is reportedly in home detention following the plotting of a coup against his half-brother King Abdullah. Moving on, the final ships trapped in the Suez Canal are on their way to the high seas and freedom. Finally, Indonesia is suffering from some serious natural disasters what with landslides after heavy rains carrying away homes, businesses, and even people. Reportedly, at least 44 citizens are dead, numerous others missing, and thousands evacuated. We’re with you! Finally, recent Russian polls claim that ‘Vladimir Putin is the sexiest Russian male alive.’ Congrats, Comrade Vlad!
- 2021 Sunday B: POLITICAL NEWS NATIONAL– Report- at least three Democrats refuse to take campaign donations from dingdong ultra-leftist lunatic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, aka the Fly, and some who have accepted money from her campaign coffers returned them.[viii] This dingbat’s star is already waning. Meanwhile, frontrunner in the race to replace dimwit New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- Andrew Yang- has left the hospital after being treated for kidney stones.
- 2021 Sunday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE / JOE BIDEN NEWS– Border Democrats are looking to feeble old Joe Biden to do something quick about the border. Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says, ‘not only is the border crisis a humanitarian crisis, it’s also a national security crisis because we have no clue who is coming across it.’ Something must be done and soon to stop the tidal wave of diseased, low-skilled, low-IQ illegals swamping across it. Meanwhile, government officials in the Lone Star State float the idea of using Joe Biden’s PORKULUS money to continue construction on the southern border wall. Like Hadrian’s Wall in Roman Britain, the wall is the only thing between civilization and 1,000 years of darkness. Speaking of Texas, Congressman Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that ‘if the Biden administration would pull back on welfare given to illegal aliens who have no business being in our country, which would stop many of them from coming (just as would a few thousand dollars spent on lead- Stinkbug).
- 2021 Sunday D: 2020 STOLEN/FRAUDULENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION– as if we needed more proof that the 2020 Presidential Election was corrupt and stolen on behalf of drooling, enfeebled Joe Biden, Maricopa County officials in the Copper State WILL NOT permit Arizona investigators to recount the 2.1 million ballots by hand, a job estimated to take up to two months at 18 hours per day. IF everything was on the up and up as Democrats claim it was, then help the investigators instead of trying to thwart them and cover up your tracks.
- 2021 Sunday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– After more than two months in office, doddering old slobbering old Joe Biden finally picks up the phone and calls (his partner in crime) Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Good for you, Joe, good for you, Joe. Next Climate Czar, the hypocritical John F. Kerry is focusing on efforts to bring the United States and the Chi-Coms together on environmental issues. This we would love to see…Next, after one of their own- Nation of Islam’s Noah Green- crashed into a barricade outside the U.S. Senate side of Constitution Avenue and killed one officer and injured another before being shot dead himself, Democrats on Capitol Hill are back to finding ways to secure Fort Pelosi. Isn’t it amazing how stuff just ‘seems to occur’ that allows the Dems to rob the American people of their rights? Elsewhere, Native Americans in Minnesota are on the warpath as they try to stop a Canadian energy project running through their state.
- 2021 Sunday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– GOP lawmakers in Kansas within hours of Governor Laura Kelly, Democrat, slapping a mask mandate on the people of her state, they knocked it down and out so the people of Kansas can go about their lives in a normal manner. Excellent! Elsewhere, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, GOP, declares a state of emergency in three counties near Tampa due to possible flooding. Meanwhile, Seattle activists propose a new initiative which would end homelessness and homeless encampments of which, they are the national capital, and would fund housing for those affected by the new proposal. Moving on, Congressman Madison Cawthorn, R-NC 11th congressional district, calls out demands for increased gun control as well as the politization of the U.S. military and says that Dems’ cries for ‘common sense gun laws’ means the disarmament of the American people. God bless you, son.
- 2021 Sunday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com multi-billionaire is looking to buy the NFL franchise Los Angeles Chargers, valued at $2.6 billion due to massive amounts of debt. Jeff- send them back to San Diego. Next, Tesla is doing battle with labor unions and recent Labor Board rulings. Good luck. Moving on, the U.S. hits a milestone dishing out 3 million Chi-Vi vaccines per day. This follows on the news of large numbers of the unusable Johnson & Johnson vaccines going bad. What is up with that company? Meanwhile, in New York City, Broadway is finally set to reopen. About time. Elsewhere, signs of life returning to normal continue to arise as the TSA announces that in a single day, it screened 1.5 million airline passengers. Finally, NFL great Tom Brady’s rookie card sold for $2.25 million.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The next album by Robbie Robertson was a ‘best of’ compilation for his most ardent fans, “Classic Masters,” an album that came out on August 13, 2002. The album featured a collection of tunes culled from his first two solo albums upon leaving the Band, the group that gave him fame and fortune, the group that he would leave behind and move on from due to it rapidly spiraling out of control. We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam. We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value. Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.
