Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un along the DMZ separating the two Koreas from one another.  President Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to walk across the dividing line onto North Korean soil and then the two crossed into South Korea where they held an impromptu meeting for nearly three hours.  Jealous Democrats and fake news promoters called the whole thing a ‘photo op’ when it might truly lead to peace and destroy Democratic Party 2020 hopes.   Meanwhile, in Khartoum, the capital of the Sudan, protests against continued military rule leads to violence what with seven killed and 181 injured.

Trump.
  65. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s stock market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,812.88, UP 217.08 points 0.85%), NASDAQ: 10,058.76, UP 184.61 points (1.87%), and the S&P 500: 3,100.29, UP 47.05 points (1.54%).
  66. 2021 Wednesday:  Friends, please stick around but note, we may be toning things down a bit what with increased pressure from the outside.  Joe Biden is GREAT, communist China WONDERFUL, illegal aliens DELIGHTFUL.  Nancy Pelosi is a GENIUS, AOC a MENSA graduate, and BIG GOVERNMENT preferable to freedom and liberty.  Yes, we are using Newspeak Dictionary 2021.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jethro Tull released their next ‘best of’ package on January 11, 1993, just in time for the wintertime blues, “Nightcap- the Unreleased Masters 1973-1991.”  This effort contains amazing music on two big discs most of them from albums but also some as singles or from EPs.  If you have yet to introduce the music of this seminal British rock band to your ears, well, this is a glorious way in which one can right that incredibly lethargic wrong.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering because it was so damned amazing.

[ii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[iii] Democrats in 2020 now want to lower the voting age to 16-year-olds as well as to felons, illegal aliens, and others who should not be able to vote.  If anything, voting age should be raised to 35 because most Americans do not begin undergoing the maturation process as they did 50 or more years ago.  What we are saying is that young people are little more than a bunch of sissies who should never be able to vote.  Let us restore it as the Constitution presented it that people of property should be the only ones able to vote.  You must have a stake in the country to do what’s right for her.

[iv] It’s no wonder as to WHY Jimmy Carter served but one term as president.  The guy was a whoosie.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next studio album by Jethro Tull- “Too Old to Rock-and-Roll: Too Young to Die,” came out on April 23, 1976.  Once again, the band was floundering about as it sought to find its direction and this album was about an aging rock star faced with living the remaining of his life out of the limelight.  Ah, well, Ian Anderson always has lofty ideas but sometimes they come across in a cloudy way.  Still, this is a fine album and features a somewhat altered lineup of Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), and Barriemore Barlow (drums).  We encourage everyone to visit a local music store and give it a good listen.  In the old days, we could go to record stores and could listen to an entire album in a listening booth to see if we wanted to buy it or we didn’t.  We believe that that is something that should be brought back for all fans as it would make it easier to know if something was right for our musical tastes or it was not.  Check it out.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Steve Miller Band, we screwed up by not promoting the music of Boz Scaggs at the same time.  We look forward to doing it soon.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[v] 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.

[vi] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[vii] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[viii] James Comey is a worthless POS and one of the main coup plotters against President Donald J. Trump.  We hope he will soon be breaking rocks at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary for his role in the attempted coup.

[ix] 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.

Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following the bust-up of Apple Records and Badfinger being thrown to the winds, their record company compiled 17 key tracks from the post Apple albums on “The Best of Badfinger Volume 2” (January 21, 1990).  You get a key selection of illuminating tracks that demonstrate the potential this star-crossed band possessed so it makes one wonder as to what might have happened had they NOT signed with Apple and found another company willing to market their potential instead of milking them for everything they had like a damp sponge.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your listening day.  We think you will be glad you took the time to give it a thorough listening.  Enjoy.

  65. 2014 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Brazilian police distribute pamphlets to World Cup visitors with instructions on how to behave in the event of a robbery; law enforcement means the ‘advice’ to protect victims from injury or death during crime.

  68. 2017 Wednesday: To the delight of environmentalists everywhere, the U.S. Geological Service releases a study claiming that some glaciers in Montana have receded by 85-percent over the past half-century.  No wonder imbeciles such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the world is coming to an end soon.  Sadly, the Sun is the sole driver of all climatic changes throughout the entire Solar System.  Conversation and fighting pollution is indeed important but the Earth- and other planets- have all gone through periods of climate change throughout the history of said Solar system.  Meanwhile, to the ‘horror’ of Democrats, President Donald J. Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).
  69. 2018 Thursday: Following Iran firing missiles into Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria, the IDF lights up Iranian targets in Syria with 70 missiles, blowing up numerous installations and other military infrastructure.  Of course, Iran claims Israel started the fight.
  70. 2019 Friday: The United States raises tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese imports, a jump of 25-percent, following the collapse of trade talks between the United States and the communist nation.  Meanwhile, Uber becomes a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange on this date.
  71. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 continues causing problems for the nations of the world what with 4,097,158 confirmed cases, 282,495 confirmed deaths, and 1,402,882 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,362,715 confirmed cases, 80,562 confirmed deaths, and 208,344 confirmed recoveries which is good, the recoveries that is.  Breaking down the three states in which the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California comes first.  In the Golden State, there are 66,773 confirmed cases and 2,745 confirmed deaths but no mention of recoveries.  In Hawaii, we have 732 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 561 confirmed recoveries.  In Washington state, there are 16,891 confirmed cases and 931 confirmed deaths but like California, there is no mention of confirmed recoveries.   
  72. 2021 Monday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger disbanded after their previous album and then the duo of Tom Evans and Joey Molland reformed to make a comeback album.  The resulting effort, “Airwaves,” came out on May 11, 1979, and the band featured the pair with a bevy of session musicians around them with which to create somewhat of a new sound.  However, critics were unkind and their record label made little to no effort to promote the album which saw it die a slow death.  Still, it has its moments and fans of the band love it which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and consider making it a part of your growing album collection- we think you will be glad you did.

GG. 1954 Sunday: The Battle of Dien Bien Phu has ended. Some portions of the camp without contact with the others continued to fight until overrun by the enemy. The French Foreign Legionnaires holding Isabelle tried to make a breakout but the going was slow, the resistance great, and so Colonel Lalandé told his remaining troops to lay down their arms. The fight was over.

  53. 2008 Friday: The price of crude oil hits an astounding $125.98 per barrel.  This is not good for the economies of the world.  Meanwhile, Hezbollah continues a powerplay in Lebanon in general and in Beirut in particular as they continue battling with government forces.

  56. 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad.  (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge).  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.  A decade from now, they will be surpassing us.

  59. 2014 Friday: For the first time since annexing the Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin visits the region on the holiday commemorating the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.  Who will stop this murderous POS?  Meanwhile, the South Korean military announces that three drones that penetrated its airspace came from North Korea.
  60. 2015 Saturday: After a period of 42 days with NO new Ebola cases, which is twice the normal quarantine rate, the UN Health Organization declares the outbreak of the dreaded virus in the African nation of Liberia to be at an end.  During the outbreak, about 4,700 people died from the horrendous disease.   Elsewhere, the North Koreans claim to have successfully test-fired a missile from a submarine.

Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House.  Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup.  We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime.  Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.
  63. 2018 Wednesday: According to On This Day, the Supreme Court of India has some major criticism for the government department responsible for archaeological preservation because they did little to nothing to prevent the discoloration of the iconic Taj Mahal- the only ‘wonder’ left of the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’- as well as the build-up of green slime in the historic site.  Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the Iranian people go ballistic after President Trump declares the U.S. is pulling out of the multinational nuclear deal signed during the Obama administration.  Screw ‘em!
  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries.   Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Badfinger was “Wish You Were Here,” which came out on November 15, 1974 and is considered by many to be among the band’s best works.  The lineup featured the same quartet- 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)- and had there not been troubles between Warner Bros. and the band’s publishing company, it might have had an opportunity to shine.  However, after several weeks on the shelves of record stores, the legal squabbles caused the management at Warner Bros. to yank it from sale.  Lucky people would be able to find it and then years later, expanded versions would become available and would become extremely popular with fans.  We hope you will seek this one out and give it a good shot at becoming a regular portion of your song lists.  Check it out.

Elsewhere, in Dien Bien Phu, General de Castries informs Hanoi that the end is coming soon while Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais holds a council with his officers chosen to lead Albatross if indeed they thought they would be able to break out and head due south to what they hoped might be rescue. The officers to a man said they were not leaving behind anyone so the decision was made to stay and to fight to the end. This information was forwarded to General de Castries who informed his superiors in Hanoi that NO breakout would occur. Later in the day, after all artillery and mortar rounds were fired, a deathly pall settled over the entire valley. The Battle of Dien Bien Phu just…stopped.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger released its next album, “Badfinger,” an album originally entitled, “For Love of Money” but which was nixed by their new label, came out on February 21, 1974.  Once again, the lineup was the same, featuring 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).  Sadly, the magic of the OLD DAYS was gone because when things were good at Apple Records, they were genuinely GREAT whereas now, Badfinger was just another working band struggling to sell records in evolving times.  Still, they were a brilliant live act as well as phenomenal songwriters so what the heck folks, seek this one out and give it a good listen- we think you will be glad you did.

Oliver North, U.S. Army Ret., will become the organization’s next president.   Elsewhere, Paraguay becomes the third country to announce the relocating of its embassy from Tel Aviv to capital of Israel, Jerusalem.  Of course, liberals and Gaza Strip trash are wailing and crying that it’s an ‘affront’ against humanity to do so.  The sooner the better, Paraguay.
  62. 2019 Tuesday: In Venezuela, turmoil- as usual- reigns supreme as the Congress strips opposition leaders of immunity and accuses them of treason.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo makes a surprise visit to Iraq to meet with U.S. military and Iraqi leaders so they can determine what to do as the Iranians continue making threats against both nations.  Nuke them.
  63. 2020 Thursday: The U.S. Department of Justice recommends the case against Lt. General Michael Flynn, former national security advisor to President Donald J. Trump be dropped and so it is.   Meanwhile, COVID-19 pandemic adds another 3.17 million Americans to the unemployment rolls, driving the numbers up past 33 million.  Thank you, China.  Confirmed cases of the Kung Flu around the world are 3,784,085; confirmed deaths are 264,679 and confirmed recoveries are 1,255,685 which is great.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,288,771, confirmed deaths are 76,503, and confirmed recoveries are 173,939.  Breaking down the U.S. figures, California has 61,139 confirmed cases, 2,474 confirmed deaths with NO numbers for recoveries.  Hawaii claims 626 confirmed cases, 17 deaths, and 588 confirmed recoveries.  In Washington state, there are 16,178 confirmed cases, 891 confirmed deaths, but NO numbers for recoveries.  What is up with that?  In New York state under the watchful eye of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, there are 327,469 confirmed cases, 20,828 confirmed cases and like California and Washington state, NO numbers for recoveries.  Could it be political?  You better believe it.
  64. 2020 Thursday A: Following a viral video showing Chi-Com sailors aboard their ‘fishing boats’ throwing the body of a dead Indonesian fisherman overboard, the government of Indonesia summons the Chi-Com ambassador to an immediate meeting to discuss the outrageous mistreatment of its citizens serving aboard the Chi-Com ‘fishing fleets’ (which in reality are actually intelligence-gathering operations with foreign fishing crews aboard them to do the ‘fishing’ because fishing is beneath modern-day Chi-Com citizens).   Elsewhere, law enforcement in Brunswick, Georgia, scoops up father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael and charges the two scumbags for chasing down black jogger Ahmaud Arbery on tape beating and then murdering him.  They claimed he was breaking into houses in their area and that they were forced to take matters into their own hands.  These guys are going to fry.   
  65. 2021 Friday: Stick around and discover the truth along with us…you know it’s going to be good…until BIG BROTHER shuts us down for good…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final album Badfinger did for Apple Records came out on November 23, 1973.  “Ass” hit record store shelves and fans were still with the group even though it did not do well on the charts.  The group was disillusioned with Apple because the label had sold them a bill of goods and then left them in the lurch.  Warner Bros. happily picked them up and gave them new life.  The band featured 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).  “Apple of My Eye” was the single from the band but it failed to do as well as previous releases.  We hope you will seek this one out and give it a good listen- you will definitely enjoy it as much as we do.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[vii] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

McGovern- nicknamed “Earthquake McGoon” for a comic strip character of the time and his co-pilot Wallace Buford bit the dust today. McGovern- flying his 45th supply run to Dien Bien Phu with a full load of ammunition for his French allies suffered AA damage to the tail. The plane was unable to complete its mission and as the C-119 struggled to make it away from enemy troops clipped the side of a mountain flying low through a valley, flipped over, and blew up killing the crew.

Andrew Cuomo of New York is going to hit every out-of-state medical professional who answered his call to come help the Empire State through its (self-imposed) COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with state income taxes.  Currently, there are 3,755,341 confirmed cases of Kung Flu worldwide, 263,831 confirmed deaths, and 1,245,415 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you, communist China.  In the United States, we have 1,259,604 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Flu, 74,577 confirmed deaths, and 170,859 confirmed recoveries.  In California, we have 59,698 confirmed cases and 2,439 confirmed deaths but no mention of recoveries.  In Hawaii, we have 626 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 588 confirmed recoveries while in Washington state, there are 15,905 confirmed cases and 870 confirmed deaths but like California, no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Curious.  Meanwhile, communist China claims 88,423 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Flu, 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Got to love their honesty (joke).
  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.’
  64. 2021 Thursday: Stick around…

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.

FF. 1954 Wednesday: At Dien Bien Phu, French troops fighting at Claudine 5 are shocked to see a platoon of Moroccan soldiers cut their way through the wire and cross over to surrender to the enemy. The People’s Army immediately launched attacks on this site which cost the French Foreign Legionnaires at least seven men. Once the attack was repulsed through superior force of arms, the remaining Moroccan troops were stripped of their weapons and propelled to join other deserters clustering around the Nam Youm River.

  48. 2010 Wednesday: Off the coast of East Africa- 500 miles, no less- Somali pirates seize control of a Russian oil tanker Moscow University with a crew of 23 souls aboard.  Not good.  We suspect the Russians are going to light them up.
  49. 2011 Thursday: Across Syria as protests continue to get out of control, the Syrian government begins mobilizing more troops and firing up the engines of their tanks.  They will proceed to various hotspots and put an end to this stupidity.   In some of the towns and cities, anti-government thugs have even toppled statues commemorating President Bashar al-Assad’s father, the founder of the modern country which is outrageous.

  55. 2017 Friday: Effective at midnight, an agreement reached by Russia, Turkey, and Iran will establish a ‘safe zone’ in northern Syria through which NO military aircraft will navigate, including American warplanes.  The ‘safe zone’ will also prohibit military action on the ground.   The United Nations is ecstatic that some semblance of civilization will be restored although Syrian military opposition and jihadists such as ISIS refuse to acknowledge or accept.
  56. 2018 Saturday: NASA launched the Mars In Sight lander from California on a flight of more than six months to the red planet, where the robot geologist would dig deeper into the Martian surface than ever before.  Elsewhere, Palestinians are up to no good once again as a large blast erupts near the town of Deir al-Balah blows at least six Palestinians to kingdom come while injuring numerous others.  Hamas thugs point the jihadist finger at the Israelis who point theirs right back.  Sounds like a case of bomb-making gone bad.  Sad.
  57. 2019 Sunday: Due to Palestinian intransigence and transgression over the past several days, four Israeli and 23 Palestinian citizens lie dead and countless others injured.   Meanwhile, at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, at least 41 die and numerous others are injured as a Russian Aeroflot airliner comes back and makes an emergency landing.   Elsewhere, Juan Guido, president of the nation’s National Assembly, says he is considering a request with which to get the U.S. to invade the country and topple the communist POS dictator Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro.
  58. 2020 Tuesday: After the U.S. Supreme Court begins it session hearing arguments from a distance, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg goes to the hospital for what sounds to be an issue with gall or kidney stones.  Politics aside, we wish her a full recovery and a swift return to work.  This woman is amazing, she has survived numerous health crises in her life and always comes back strong.  God bless you.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s charging of those involved in a plot to topple Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro, President Donald J. Trump denies any involvement in the so-called ‘attempted coup.’
  59. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, the COVID-19 update for the day: confirmed cases globally stand at 3,659,271; confirmed deaths are 256,929; and confirmed recoveries are 1,197,735 which is extremely good.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,233,146, confirmed deaths are 71,921, and confirmed recoveries are 163,841.  In the states connected to this blog, stats for California confirmed cases stand at 56,705 while confirmed deaths are 2,309.  Sadly, Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, confirmed cases are 625, confirmed deaths are 17 and confirmed recoveries are 551.  Finally, in Washington state, confirmed cases are 15,557 and confirmed deaths are 862.  No information on confirmed recoveries so Gov. Jay Inslee is behaving just like Gov. Newsom.  Shame on them.  Question: WHY won’t Democrat-controlled states present recovery statistics?  Finally, communist China’s statistics, the place where this curse began remains the same: confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785 same as they were a week ago.  Shame.  
  60. 2021 Wednesday: You know the drill…looks like the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party WOKE stooges are screwing with our numbers…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger came back on November 09, 1970 with their follow-up effort to “Magic Christian Music” with the amazing, “No Dice.”  There was a slight change in the lineup but it would be the lineup with which most fans of the band would long remember it: 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).   The album contained another monster hit, “No Matter What” and another great tune, “Without You,” which although not a hit for Badfinger would become one for the gifted vocalist Harry Nilsson a few years later.  We hope you will seek this one out and give it a good listen; you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Cinco De Mayo commemorates the victory of Mexican rebels over the French Foreign Legion, troops fighting for Emperor Maximillian.  In modern times, restaurants and bars have given it new life so they can increase alcohol and food sales.  Police departments across the land make mass arrests of drunken drivers, thus increasing local municipality coffers.

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

[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] See previous footnote.

[v] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[vi] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade.

[vii] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

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.

  38. 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.  General Giap’s final offensive was 48 hours old and steaming along at a good clip.  If the strongest were able to break out, they would be leaving behind the wounded and going without supplies.  It looks highly doubtful that Albatross will occur.
