Meanwhile, on the Central Asian Front, the Russians are pushing into the Transcaucasia.
- 1916 Saturday: The first U.S. national women’s swimming championships took place on this date. Meanwhile, on the Western Front during World War I, the Germans are battling to control the ground surrounding Verdun, one of the all-time worst meatgrinder battles. Both the French and Germans are throwing everything they have into a swift victory which eludes both powers.
- 1917 Sunday: During World War I, the Russians are pushing towards Bagdad with the Ottoman Turks in headlong retreat. The ‘Sick Man of Europe,’ the Ottomans because they have been in decline for so long are battling to hold onto Palestine as well as to prevent a Russian invasion from the north and east (not that the Russians are doing all that well- in a few more months, the Bolshevik Revolution would knock them out of the fight).
- 1918 Monday: With Russia embroiled in the civil war between the Reds and the Whites, the Germans continue pummeling them for concessions on all manner of things.

- 1941 Tuesday: Pro-German Rashid Ali al-Ghailani grabs power in Iraq. Angry at their occupation by the Brits, the “Golden Square,” the movement to oust the British gets underway. At first, the British would be surprised and overrun but within a few days would be able to recover and strike back. Meanwhile, in North Africa, following their costly defeat at El Agheila, the British are falling back in headlong retreat across the coastal road. Is the road for the Axis to Egypt WIDE OPEN? Meanwhile, German troops are moving towards the Yugoslav border. They have a date with the Yugoslav people…
- 1942 Wednesday: The Japanese army continues the conquest of Burma, pushing the British back in one concentrated assault after another.

Elsewhere, in the North African Theater of World War II, the British, the Americans, and the Free French and Free Poles continue pushing the Afrika Korps into an ever-shrinking corner of Tunisia. As long as the Axis troops can continue the fight, they can keep Allied assets tied up there instead of being redeployed to other fronts. Still, the end is coming and it’s coming soon.
- 1944 Saturday: John Barbata, future drummer of the Turtles[ii], the Jefferson Airplane[iii], the Jefferson Starship, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young[iv] was born on this date in Passaic, New Jersey. Elsewhere, during the air war over occupied Europe, a grave error occurs today as 50 B-24 bombers flew into Switzerland’s airspace and bombed the wrong target, killing at least 40 or more civilians. Pilots shot down over Switzerland of all sides were typically interned there until the end of the war and the Swiss were not big fans of the Allies, the United States in particular. This mistake did not help things between the two countries.
- 1945 Sunday: American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II. This would prove to be one of the costliest fights of World War II and the catastrophic loss of life on both sides would press President Harry S. Truman to authorize the dropping of atomic bombs onto the Japanese home islands in the hopes it would force them to surrender.

Meanwhile, in the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, the People’s Army is launching massive attacks against the French Union, French Legionnaires, and local troops along the east side of the camp. Huge artillery barrages precede human wave assaults where the communists spring out of trenches dug right up to the wire. The battles being fought around the hilltop Eliane 2 are fierce but the French trade their shrinking perimeters for an excessive cost in communist blood. Some of the French forces are beginning to weaken and Lt. Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais informs his command to cut the Thai auxiliaries loose. No longer are they dependable.[ix]

- 1974 Monday: Ayatollah Khomeini calls for an Islamic Republic in Iran. We call for the death of the ayatollah. The guy is little more than a POS stuck to the bottom of one’s shoe.
- 1976 Thursday: Stephen Wozniak and Steve Jobs found Apple Computer.
- 1979 Sunday: Following the flight of the Shah, Iran proclaims themselves an “Islamic Republic.” This horrible country would become the number one state sponsor od terrorism.

The U.S. plane is seriously damaged and is forced down in Chi-Com territory while the PRC warplane goes down in the ocean and sinks. The Chi-Coms will keep our people prisoner and will take the spy plane apart one screw at a time.
- 2002 Monday: Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis and fighting between terrorists and Israeli Defense Forces continues.

- 2006 Saturday: White House Press Secretary Tony Snow announces that the administration is concerned over news of a potential toppling of the Lebanese government by a cabal of Syria, Iran, and Hamas forces.

- 2011 Friday: Off the coast of Greece, Crete suffers a 6.2-magnitude earthquake. Elsewhere, across the Near and Middle East, the Arab Spring continues as nations from the Persian Gulf to the end of North Africa at the Atlantic Ocean continue to see people running amok, trying to topple governments and murder leaders. It’s akin to watching global insanity among members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.
- 2012 Sunday: In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood nominates Chairman Khairat El-Shater as a candidate for the May 2012 presidential elections. Meanwhile, as the Syrian civil war continues to rage, Syrian military assets and artillery begin assaulting the city of Homs where a bunch of antigovernment and perhaps even ISIS thugs are holed up. Wipe ‘em out, boys.

Elsewhere, in North Korea, at the annual convening of the People’s Supreme Assembly, their version of a parliament, begins after Kim Jong Un finished leveling threats of thermonuclear war against BOTH South Korea and the United States. Fine people do something about it, President Barack Hussein Obama.
- 2014 Tuesday: Fifty-eight miles north of the Chilean city of Iquique, an earthquake of 8.2 magnitude hits the area, stunning the region. An earlier earthquake that hit on March 16 was 6.2-magnitude on the Richter scale; scientists predict an even bigger one soon. Meanwhile, thanks to Russian land-grabs in the Crimea, NATO cancels all civil and military cooperation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia. We’re sure they’re upset.

- 2015 Wednesday: Following problems with reaching a self-imposed reduction in water usage in drought-stricken California, Democrat Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown mandates a 25-percent reduction under threat of legal punishment to force lower usage of the precious resource. Meanwhile, the governor-fearful of rising sea levels, continues to allow millions of acre-feet of water to flow out into the Pacific Ocean to protect the Delta smelt. Impeach the bastard! Elsewhere, famed British guitarist Dave Ball who played with Procol Harum died on this date in his native England; he was 65 years-old.
- 2016 Friday: At the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, the Golden State Warriors’ NBA record for home game wins ends as the Boston Celtics beat them, 109-106; it was the team’s first loss at home since January 2015. Elsewhere, as world leaders convene in Washington, D.C., at the annual Nuclear Security Summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives them something on which to chew: he fires off a couple of missiles from the east coast of his s***hole country and into the ocean. “Notice me,” appears to be the message.
- 2017 Saturday: In Stockholm, Sweden, famed singer/songwriter Bob Dylan wins his Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in a private ceremony. God bless you, Bob. Meanwhile, the government of Communist China announces its plan to build a city three-times the size of New York City (using American money, of course, purloined from us via disastrous past trade ‘deals’) in Xlongan, a new area. Three years later, they spread the Wuhan Flu to the rest of the world. Thank you, China, thank you.
- 2018 Sunday: In the 37th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, a stunner of a game occurs as Notre Dame beats Mississippi State by a final of 61-58 what with ND forward Jessica Shepard scoring 19 points.

- 2019 Monday: China announces new laws to take effect on May 01, 2019, to stop the production of fentanyl-related opiates. Okay. China is the number one provider of opiates to the United States, being the ‘unseen hand’ distributing harmful drugs to Americans and causing far too many to die from them. Shame. Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi ARAMCO is the most profitable company in the world what with $111.1 billion in the previous year.
- 2020 Wednesday: China continues being a major problem for the rest of the globe as the Wuhan Flu continues wreaking havoc wherever it shows up- with the strange exception of China (or so they claim)- with total number of confirmed cases at or near 911,308 and total number of confirmed deaths at 45,497. We now know, however, that China has concealed- intentionally- the number of confirmed cases and number of confirmed deaths within their country so who the heck can believe anything these totalitarians claim? The U.S. number of confirmed cases is closing in at 213,000 with 47,000 or so confirmed deaths. This is outrageous, yet in China, the infamous WET MARKETS are open once more so the populace can enjoy their bat, rat, cat, dog, monkey, snakes, lizards, insects, and other exotic and endangered animals on their dinner table. Shame! World beware of the Wuhan Boogie Woogie!
- 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– A new poll shows that 59-percent of the GOP’s voters do not approve of more gun control laws. Meanwhile, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AK, said today that ‘Joe Biden’s border crisis is WORSE that a crisis, it’s sheer insanity.’ We concur. Even federal officials are nonplussed over the (lack of) Biden border plan with which to distribute illegal alien brats across the country.[xi] Elsewhere, Congressmen John Katko, R-NY 24th congressional district, and Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have authored a bipartisan bill with which to bring sanity back to the southern border. Moving on, Representative Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that the LEFT puts the fear of God (well, in the case of Democrats- Satan) into Joe Biden which prevents him from owning up to HIS border crisis.
- 2021 Thursday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– A recent report shows that the scumbag Iranians are increasing uranium enrichment in their underground lairs more than the law permits. We say, “Nuke them! Now!” Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says his major regret is that the administration was unable to get North Korea to give up its nukes. It is what it is, Mike. Next, ahead of upcoming OPEC plus meetings, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are discussing energy affordability but then, the U.S. says it’s going to minimize the number of U.S. military deployments to the Middle East to help the Saudis fight the Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen. Meanwhile, the Russians are moving armored and supply units via train towards the eastern Ukraine. With muddled Old Joe Biden in office, WAR is coming soon. We predicted this months ago.[xii] Finally, a U.S. Air Force general warns that Russian activity off the coast of Alaska is increasing at a kinetic pace. NOT GOOD.
- 2021 Thursday B: SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS / GUNS– Like always, the Democrats are pushing for more and more restrictions on firearms. Good luck with that. The FBI reports that the month of March 2021 saw the highest number of gun background checks in the U.S. ever what with 4.7 million new requests. Wow. Awesome.[xiii] Speaking of guns, yesterday, we had yet another mass shooting under the Biden administration, this one in California in which a shooter killed four people including a 9-year-old kid. Joe, WTF, dude?
- 2021 Thursday C: ECONOMIC NEWS– a recent report shows that factory activity is expanding at its highest pace since 1983. People must be thinking President Donald J. Trump is coming back. Meanwhile, the Biden administration allowed a Trump-era rule to lapse and this one was on the number of H-1B Visas handed out to foreign tech workers. Americans trained to do these jobs can return to drawing unemployment checks because half of India is returning to the U.S. Joe, again, WTF? Elsewhere, last week, 719,000 new claims for unemployment insurance benefits were filed. This is down yet again. In other economic news, corporate tenants are looking to offload expensive office space now that millions of Americans can work from home.
- 2021 Thursday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– A new report suggests that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov’s $4 million book on the AMAZING job he did with the ‘Chi-Vi’ (yeah, right) was written and edited by the Lov Gov’s staffers. We wonder, did the Gropin’ Gov share any of his money with them? Moving on, the U.S. Supreme Court gave the Federal Communications Commission the go-ahead to loosen rules on media companies ownership. Meanwhile, Colorado is becoming the latest state to weigh in on its sports teams having Native American mascots. Okay. Elsewhere, U.S. airlines passengers fell by 60-percent in 2020 (thanks to the Chi-Coms) while gun seizures in the United States are at an all-time high. Finally, American Jews report a major spike in Antisemitism, especially online.
- 2021 Thursday E: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS I– Joe Biden condemns the Texas Rangers baseball team using the harshest language (for him) over their opening the ballpark in Arlington, Texas, to FULL CAPACITY! Awesome. Life is returning to normal in civilized places. Next, the Biden infrastructure plan is to RAISE corporate taxes which has led Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell to label it a ‘liberal wish list.’ What with growing pushback across the country to this ignorant ‘plan,’ Joe Biden is demanding his Cabinet ‘go out and begin promoting the $2 trillion give-away to liberal causes.’[xiv] Finally, for some reason known only to God Almighty, Joe Biden is sending $125 million to the frigging Palestinians. WTF? (Note- the Senate GOP is BEGGING Joe Biden to keep jobs in America, not send them overseas which always seems to be Joe’s way).
- 2021 Thursday F: COVID-19 NEWS– Pfizer reports that after six months, it’s shots for the coronavirus remain 91-percent effective. As long as it’s not that skin-peeling, Johnson & Johnson crap, we’re good. Meanwhile, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, presented a new bill, “The Fire Fauci Act.” Everyone is sick of the AMAZING Dr. “Tiny Tony” Fauci. This man has lied and spread so much misinformation that it’s high time this guy was booted out on his butt. He’s a bum.
- 2021 Thursday G: POLITICAL CORRECTNESS/WOKE NEWS/MORON NEWS– Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia is firing back at befuddled Old Joe Biden’s demand that the Major League Baseball All-Star Game be pulled from Atlanta, due to the new Voting Rights Bill in the Peach State. ‘Ridiculous,’ says the man sitting in overweight Stacey Abrams’ seat (yeah, right, LOL). Next, Bud Light pulled a fast one on the American people (after all, it’s April Fool’s Day) by showing photos of its new pizza-flavored seltzer. Yuck (but of course, young people are stupid and like all manner of stupid stuff). Moving on, incredibly unattractive and terribly stupid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” aka Sandy Cortez (her birth name) is upping the ante on Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill.[xv] She wants a $10 trillion infrastructure bill. What, is this f***ing monopoly money? Finally, the Star Wars franchise is going to have new trans/nonbinary characters. Ah, aren’t you all WOKE? Dumb asses.
- 2021 Thursday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II– Iran and other world powers are discussing the re-entry of the United States into the Iran Nuclear Deal, aka the JCPOA. Wow. Thanks, Joe. Elsewhere, BIG TECH guy Tim Cook blasts Georgia for its new voting rights law while remaining entirely silent on Uighur concentration camps in Xinjiang Province. That’s a BIG CORPORATE head for you, sucking up to Beijing while blasting fellow Americans. Speaking of the Chi-Coms, seven pro-democracy advocates in Hong Kong have just been convicted in a ‘Chi-Com court’ for daring to defend the deal the Chi-Coms promised to observe- a 50-year-transition. That’s communists for you. Next, last night Tucker Carlson reported on Canada’s INTERNMENT HOTELS where all Canadian citizens exiting airplanes in that country are whisked off to internment centers where they are held for three days- or until repeated COVID-19 tests clear them (still, after three days)- before being released. Even worse, the internees pay for their own room and board which according to Mr. Carlson sees little food and even less water provided to the inmates. Even worse, the doors don’t lock and there have been reports of sexual assaults occurring in the middle of the night. This is Canada?
- 2021 Thursday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Angry Los Angeles County residents are suing the L.A. County Teachers’ Union as well as the Los Angeles Unified School District for NOT holding in-person classes for the kids. (Note- we look forward to the disciplinary problems the teachers are going to face when schools reopen. Teachers are going to get their asses beat and even murdered by out-of-control sociopathic students. Serves them right). Next, Lara Trump says, ‘it’s outrageous’ that her interview with her father-in-law was banned from Facebook and Instagram. Do what we did- we closed our social media accounts with the exception of Lilah’s Twitter account. Elsewhere, Governor Greg Gianforte, R-MT, signed a bill into law in his state that prohibits SANCTUARY CITIES and demands that ALL law enforcement cooperate with federal law enforcement officers and agencies. Finally, a report on the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021- the Capitol Hill Riots, the ones in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter infiltrated peaceful Trump supporters and carried out an incursion into the Capitol says that the majority of the blame falls on D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s ‘police forces being unprepared.’ There you go.

Today in History, April 01, 2021, at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day:
[i] Stinkbug would always say he was born in Oildale, California, which is 10 miles or so north of Pumpkin Center because he was embarrassed to tell people he was born in Pumpkin Center because people would laugh. Now, he says he doesn’t give a f*** what anyone says. Happy birthday, Stinky!
[ii] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.
[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011. Please look for them and enjoy.
[iv] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years. Please remain vigilant for when we do.
[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014. We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.
[vi] See previous.
[vii] We look forward to doing the music of Steely Dan at some point within the next 10-15 years. Please stay with us.
[viii] We hope to promote the music of this exciting professional band, Toto, at some point in the future.
[ix] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press. Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.
[x] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020. Please, check them out.
[xi] Chef Lilah Paulikovich in Hawaii reports that the first planeload of illegal alien minors arrived at Honolulu’s airport the other day. In many places, foster care children are getting booted onto the streets so illegal alien snots can take their place. Folks, what the Democrats are doing with illegal aliens is the same thing they did with black slaves in the Old South prior to the Civil War. The Democrats are always on the wrong side of history, fighting to protect the evil institution of slavery, in this case, the economic low-wage slavery of illegal aliens.
[xii] Last year we predicted an alliance of communist China, Russia, Iran, and probably some lesser members such as Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and others and that they would launch various actions in their ‘neck of the woods’ because with Joe Biden in the White House, folks, there isn’t going to be a better time to launch attacks around the world, rather like the Axis during World War II. It’s coming.
[xiii] Virtually everyone- and we mean everyone- here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM has gone out- with family members- and added guns, accessories, and ammunition like there’s no tomorrow. F*** the Democrats.
[xiv] Yet, “Cocaine Mitch” is praising Joe Biden while slamming his administration. That’s the way, Mitch, that’s the way to play BOTH SIDES of the fence.
[xv] House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that ‘Joe Biden’s absurd $2 trillion ‘infrastructure bill’ is no joke. We have to stop this crap.

Peter Navarro is correct: the AMAZING Dr. Tony “Goggles” Fauci is indeed a sociopath- Fauci needs to shut the hell up…NOW!
