  63. 2020 Wednesday A: Long-time vocalist with the British rock band Bad Company[vi] (following the departure of original vocalist Paul Rodgers) Brian Howe died at age 66 in Lake Placid, Florida.  He served as the band’s vocalist from 1986 to 1993 and kept the band’s success alive.   Meanwhile, Venezuela announces that it is going to try the so-called ‘mercenaries’ captured a few days earlier by its armed forces in the nation’s civil courts, including the two supposed American ringleaders.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. will do ‘everything in its power to return U.S. citizens to the United States.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On December 13, 1971, after working long hours in the studio and performing gigs, Badfinger returned with “Straight Up,” an album that should have been a massive commercial success but which the critics panned.  The album featured the same lineup of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals) as well as George Harrison who basically joined the band and added his signature slide guitar as well as other notables such as Leon Russell and Gary Wright.  Critics slammed the effort but the group had three producers on the album beginning with Geoff Emerick who did their previous effort followed by ex-Beatle George Harrison who then left the band to bring his Concert for Bangladesh to fruition followed by the Nazz’ Todd Rundgren so there were inconsistencies throughout the effort.  Still, the song “Day After Day” was a big seller and will forever be associated with this gifted band.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

124. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 04, 2021

LL. 1954 Tuesday A: The attempt to reach Dien Bien Phu by French Union forces fighting from the south in Operation Condor had stalled. A contingency plan- Operation Albatross had already been discussed, a breakout of the 2,000-3,000 fittest men from Dien Bien Phu and Isabelle, but sadly for the garrison, it was slated to May 15 when additional air support and artillery could provide some semblance of aid as to help those breaking out heading to the south. Problem was the troops were unclear as to whether they could sustain the fight until then.

FF. 1954 Monday: Fighting continues at Dien Bien Phu. At Isabelle, French Foreign Legionnaires send out combat patrols to clear communist approach trenches ringing them on all sides. Fighting is fierce in the style of World War I with hand grenades, knives, rifle butts, and brass knuckles. Once again, the communists are driven away, the Foreign Legionnaires bring in captured weapons to augment what they have left. In the main camp, officers are going through the hospital seeking anyone who can load or fire a weapon to return to duty in defense of the camp. The walking wounded pick up arms and head back to the fight. It is US or it is THEM and when it comes to communists, the only good communists are dead communists.

Trump does a digital town hall from the Lincoln Memorial with Fox News Channel.  Of course, his Democrat enemies blast him for ‘doing it there.’  “Anywhere else other than the Lincoln Memorial” is what they cry and whine but anywhere Trump would have done it would have met the exact same criticisms.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Before there was Badfinger, there was the Iveys, a band that formed in Swansea, Wales, and became the first outside band signed to the Beatles’ Apple label.  The group consisted of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, rhythm guitar), Ron Griffiths (bass guitar, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  The group’s first album, “Maybe Tomorrow,” came out on July 04, 1969, and was slated to be issued worldwide; however, for some still unknown reason, it only hit record stores in Japan, West Germany, and Italy which would make this album an expensive collector’s choice once they changed their name from the Iveys to Badfinger and became a massive global phenomenon.  We wholly recommend this album as it’s one for the history books, the start of something amazing as well as extremely tragic which is why we recommend it with as much vigor as we possibly can.   At Amazon.com, you can get the CD for about $20 while on vinyl, it goes for around $200.00.  Seek it out and give it a listen- enjoy.

  60. 2006 Sunday: In the United States, illegal aliens want to show the American people ‘the what for’ by staying home from their jobs.  They want to show the American people that WE NEED THEM.  NO, we don’t need you and as many of us who are employers did back then, IF the illegals didn’t show up, we FIRED them and in some cases handed their information over to immigration authorities.  Look, we need to send the welfare folks out into the fields and we would bet they would get better jobs ASAP.  Then, we could revive the Bracero Program that worked so well for decades.
  61. 2007 Monday: Four years ago this very day, President George W. Bush stood on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and said- regarding the invasion of Iraq- “Mission accomplished.”  Almost as soon as the words spilled out of his mouth, the insurgency broke out and claimed more U.S. lives than the invasion did.  Anyhow, President Bush vetoed an Iraq War funding bill because included within it was more downtime between tours in the godforsaken country as well as increased training, better equipping, and hardcore benchmarks the Iraqi government had to meet.  The more we look back at events such as this, the more we believe George W. Bush did a HORRIBLE thing and that the Deep State and the Neocons propelled him into it.  We must always think of our servicemen-and-women ahead of regime change wars, especially when they are undeclared and the entire nation is not behind the effort.  Meanwhile, a May Day pro-illegal alien immigration rally goes awry in the City of Angels today as out-of-control illegal alien loves got their asses beat by the LAPD.  Go for it.  
  62. 2008 Wednesday: Why this should matter to the United States is beyond us but President George W. Bush offers tougher sanctions on Myanmar for the horrible crap they do over there to minorities and to freedom-loving people and makes it so the Burmese government cannot get its hands on its assets inside the United States.  (Note- move ‘em to Beijing).
  63. 2009 Thursday: U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter announced his retirement effective at the end of the court’s term in late June.   Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than peaceful marches turning into violent mobs?  Violence breaks out in the streets of Germany, Greece, and Turkey where cops try to quell mob violence to the best of their abilities.  What is it with the communists?  Can’t they do anything without launching violent attacks on people who have nothing with which to do with them?  WTF?
  64. 2010 Friday: The Washington Post publishes a story in which, two retired U.S. Army generals tell the reporter that the U.S. military is having a tough time with 25-percent of the population being obese and ‘too fat to fight.’  Perhaps we should return to a draft and get these punks back in shape?   Meanwhile, some member of the ‘religion of peace’ sets off a bomb inside a Mogadishu mosque sending at least two dozen people to visit with Allah sooner than they had anticipated.
  65. 2011 Saturday: At Abbottabad, Pakistan, U.S. Special Forces’ Seal Team Six locate and kill the most wanted terrorist in the world, Osama bin Laden along with several others who attempted to defend him.   Late in the evening, U.S. President Barack Obama announces that American military operatives killed Osama bin Laden, founder of the militant Islamist group Al-Qaida.  Former President George W. Bush congratulates his successor on his momentous achievement.   Meanwhile, the United Nations attempt to visit Pfc. Bradley Manning in prison is rebuffed by the Obama administration.
  66. 2012 Tuesday: On the first anniversary of the slaying of long-sought jihadist Osama Bin Laden, President Barack Obama lands in Kabul, Afghanistan, on an unannounced visit.  There, he meets with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.  The two sign an agreement that outlines cooperation between the two nations in the War on Terror through 2014.  Meanwhile, as the Saudi ambassador to Egypt is moving around Cairo, Egyptian authorities foil an attempted assassination attempt against him by the Iranians.  Light those fools up.
  67. 2013 Wednesday: The U.N. Human Rights Office determines that it is a violation of international law to force-feed hunger strikers at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay prison.  Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, the Boston police scoop up three close friends of the bombers who provided them aid and comfort.  Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, a May Day celebration causes the celebrants to run amok, attacking police, breaking glass, and setting things ablaze.  Nearly a dozen cops are injured in the melees around the city.  That’s communists for you.
  68. 2014 Thursday: According to Brainy History, Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Mulally, will retire in July and that Mark Fields will replace him; Mulally restored profitability and distinguished the company as the only Big Three automaker to refuse government bailouts during the 2008-2009 recession.  Elsewhere, as Vladimir Putin’s thugs continue trying to snip off the eastern portion of Ukraine- cos, don’t you know- a whole lotta Russians supposedly live there- Kiev orders a return to conscription, what we Americans call the draft.  IF only the Obama administration would provide these guys with weapons.
  69. 2015 Friday: According to Brainy History, Elon Musk, head of Tesla Motors, announces the formation of Tesla Energy, a producer of large batteries for storage of generated renewable energy in homes and businesses.  Elsewhere, in Jalisco state in Mexico, narcoterrorists knock a Mexican military helicopter out of the sky.  In the ensuing crash, three Mexican soldiers are killed outright while another 10 soldiers and a pair of Federales suffer injuries to varying degrees.  Meanwhile, Maryland State Attorney Marilyn Mosby says that the six officers involved in the death of criminal Freddie Gray were negligent in their duties.   These six officers of the Baltimore Police Department will find themselves in court.
  70. 2016 Sunday: ISIS does what it does best and that is it carries out two car bombings in the town of As-Samawah that propels unlucky souls to commune with Allah while leaving 75 wounded in varying degrees.   Elsewhere, two Christian missionaries working out of Pennsylvania are found murdered in separate areas of Jamaica’s rural St. Mary’s Parish.  As of now, NO one knows who killed Randy Hentzel and Harold Nichols.
  71. 2017 Monday: Musician Billy Corgan announces he will purchase the National Wrestling Alliance.   Elsewhere, Kim Jong Un goes berserk as the U.S. flies two B-1B heavy bombers over the Korean Peninsula causing the ‘Brave Leader’ to bellow that the Trump administration is preparing for nuclear war against his country.  Meanwhile, what’s Paris, France, without RIOTS on May Day?  That’s what they get as mobs of protesters- supposedly preparing for upcoming elections- run amok in the streets causing riot police to fire tear gas and rubber bullets into the seething crowd.
  72. 2018 Tuesday: Another one bites the dust: the Dominican Republic, under pressure from the Chi-Coms, severs ties with Taiwan and opens diplomatic relations with Beijing.   Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than communists and socialists running amok in the streets?  In France, Paris sees some violent demonstrations what with car dealerships and fast food restaurants being set ablaze.  Not good.  Maybe the authorities should utilize some lead on these scumbags?  Just saying.
  73. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr sits before the Senate Judiciary Committee so he shag questions on HOW he handled the fraudulent Robert S. Mueller III report into ‘Trump-Russia collusion,’ since proven to be little more than a hoax.  Meanwhile, WikiLeaks founder receives a sentence of 50 weeks in a British slammer over his skipping bail back in 2012.  After that…he could be on his way to the United States.  Elsewhere, following the leak of a defense council meeting in Great Britain regarding the danger communist China’s Huawei poses the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May fires her Secretary of State Defense Gavin Williamson, blaming him for the leak.
  74. 2020 Friday: COVID-19 continues running amok and communist China continues acting like the Sgt. Schultz character on the old B & W TV show, “Hogan’s Heroes,” “We know nothing, we know nothing.”  Okay, be like that.  Anyhow, here are today’s statistics: around the globe, we have 3,033,296 confirmed cases of this mess, 235,290 confirmed deaths but 1,039,588 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,128,460 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu, 65,435 confirmed deaths, and 137,944 confirmed recoveries.  If you notice, confirmed deaths in the U.S. rose only 1,897 over the course of today while confirmed recoveries rose by 9,508 so folks, WTF?  Far-left fascist governors, quit behaving like you work in China and not the United States- that means you, Ralph Northam, that means you, Gretchen Whitmer, that means you, northeast liberal lunatic governors and that means you, J.B. Pritzker.  STOP behaving like Nazis!
  75. 2021 Saturday: You know the drill…

[vi] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.  The album on which, “Brown Sugar” appeared- “Sticky Fingers”- was offered on Wednesday, 13-April-2016.  It was a wonderful addition to the band’s discography; we hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best rock music.

[vii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[viii]We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  Seeing as how Fleetwood Mac was among the earliest bands we ever promoted, we will have to pick them back up and present not only the music of the band that has come out since then but also the individual member’s solo projects.
