Gen. 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?

  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

The next album by the Beach Boys- “Shut Down Volume 2” was the biggest to date as it contained so many wonderful tunes.  The lineup featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals).  The tunes on this album are some of the band’s fan favorites to this date- “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Don’t Worry Baby” (a tune Who drummer Keith Moon would cover on his sole solo album), “The Warmth of the Sun,” “This Car of Mine,” “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” “Shut Down Part II,” and a cover of “Louie, Louie.”  We hope you will investigate this album to your ears’ content as it is one every fan of the times and of the band should own.  You will be so glad you did.

  62. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,974 chi-vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 181,635 deaths.      
  63. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,761,724 confirmed cases, 62,357 confirmed deaths, and 2,005,443 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,275,365 confirmed cases, 35,849 confirmed deaths, and 1,859,688 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,329 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 418,071 confirmed cases, 5,642 confirmed deaths, and 203,349 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., American Samoa, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, and the Northern Marianas Islands become states: they have 4 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 1 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]   
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,000 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,738 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Kenya, the birthplace of the United States’ 44th ‘president’ Barack Hussein Obama: 163,976 cases of the virus, 2,928 confirmed deaths and 113,057 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]     
  65. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,216.69, DOWN 473.66 points (-1.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,389.43, DOWN 12.43 points (-0.093%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,152.10, DOWN 36.33 points (-0.87%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.46 per barrel, +0.15 (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,837.20 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.03%) while the price of SILVER is $27.71 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.16%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,241.60 per troy oz, +0.40 (+0.03%) while the price of COPPER is $4.79 per pound, 0.00 (+0.63%).[xv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,938.34 per troy oz, -21.25 (-0.72%).[xvi] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-1.73%).[xvii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96. In Solomon Islands Dollar, one greenback equals 7.9957 and in Somali Schilling, a buck equals 575.00 and in South African Rand, one dollar equals 13.99 of theirs.[xviii]      The reason as to WHY Wall Street had such a down cycle today is due to fears of oncoming rampant inflation thanks to the inabilities of the Biden regime to continue the Trump economic miracle.  The Bidenistas will bring about a new Great Depression- mark our words.  Businesses are raising prices at the highest rates since the 1980s.   In other news, cryptocurrencies value is higher than that of the U.S. dollar.
  66. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.107 per gallon, $2.877 in Florida, $3.833 in Hawaii, and $3.518 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Rhode Island: $2.894.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Bolivia: $2.045 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,274,850,063,528 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Untermensch in Gaza Strip continue attacking Israel, enfeebled old Joe Biden finds himself under assault from both the right and left.  The right wants Israel supported and defended while the left wants to see Israel destroyed.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day stands with Israel to a member.  We say use the neutron bomb on the human scum inhabiting the Gaza Strip and then reclaim the land for Israel.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore says that ‘Joe Biden’s unemployment benefits are keeping Americans out of the workforce.’  Amen.  Regarding the abandonment of Israel by the fraudulent Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump says that ‘Biden’s weakness is causing the massive surge in violence across the Middle East.’  Amen to that, too.   
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News II– In other fascinating news, WOKE leftists are jumping on Andrew Yang for announcing his support for Israel.  And the left eats its own.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is sending out ‘signed letters’ to recipients of COVID-19 relief checks.  Big whoop.  Stick the letters where the sun don’t shine Mr. (Bogus) President.   Finally, new rules coming out of the Biden regime would force doctors and other medical professionals to enable those suffering from gender dysphoria to undergo whatever treatments and irreversible processes they demand.  (Note- while I hate to say this, I am beginning to think that Joe Biden could very well be the Antichrist- Olaf).
  69. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Chile- a nation with a high rate of vaccination against the Chi-Vi is currently experiencing a tidal wave of new Bat Fu Yuk cases thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, a key officer at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that ‘annual booster shots may be required against the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the China Virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the ‘VID.  No thank you, we are not getting the vaccinations no matter what.  Elsewhere, analysis by the New York Times shows that the extremely overcautious Centers for Disease Control are sowing mass confusion over the danger of the Wuhan Flu.   Finally, Missouri and Tennessee are joining other states slashing Chi-Vi relief payments to their citizens.  It’s time for these people to return to work.  Now.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– In Russia, at least seven are dead in a school shooting in that country.  The police have apprehended the suspect.   Next, the Siberian doctor who treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has mysteriously disappeared.   Next, left-wing lawmakers in the U.S. (you know the scum) are screeching about ‘Israel’s brutality’ in defending itself from the 130 or so rockets fired into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  You know our feelings on the topic.  Elsewhere, Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says that Iran is trying to cause problems in the Straits of Hormuz by swamping U.S. Navy and Coast Guard assets with swift boats.’  We say, ‘sink these riffraff scumbags.’
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– The Vatican warns U.S. bishops NOT to deny drooling old Joe Biden communion.  (Note- we know where Pope Francis stands which is why many Catholics are abandoning the church.  The man’s a Marxist and one cannot serve Marx and God simultaneously.  Olaf).   Next, the new White House deputy director for political strategy and outreach- Natalie Montelongo- says, ‘ICE does not have to exist.’  Next, a new poll says that almost two-thirds of Americans believe social media platforms are ripping our country asunder.   Elsewhere, Caitlyn Jenner, running for the governor’s job in California chose to golf on Election Day rather than to cast a vote for President Donald J. Trump.  Hence why we like John Cox.
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, and other members of the GOP are calling for a new probe into the shootings that occurred at the baseball field a few years back when an enraged Bernie Sanders supporter shot several people and either seriously wounded or killed them before being shot and killed by Capitol Hill Police officers.  After all, a week or two ago, FBI Director Chris Wray announced the verdict of ‘suicide by cop.’  Wow.
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In Georgia, prosecutors are going to seek the death penalty against the sex-addicted POS who shot up a pair of Asian massage (brothel) parlors killing eight people, six of whom were Asian women whom the left then leapt atop as a symbol of anti-Asian hate ginned up by the China Virus.   Good.  Convict and execute that punk.  Next, in related legal news, the reason for the divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates is because back in 2019, Melinda was upset that hubby Bill was too close to Jeffrey Epstein, the pervert and pedophile.  We’d throw the guy out, too.  Elsewhere, in other legal news, New York state is celebrating a big victory as a court in the Empire State has thrown out the bankruptcy filings by the National Rifle Association.  Finally, trainer Bob Baffert of the Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, claims that an ointment he used on the horse may have caused its ‘positive’ for doping.  The investigation continues.
  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– Now that Great Britain is going to require photo IDs to vote, President Donald J. Trump points out the obvious that so, too, should the United States.  Of course, to leftists, photo IDs are RACIST.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he is supporting Glenn Youngkin, the GOP candidate for Virginia governor, in the upcoming election.   Another stalwart candidate in upstate New York- Sheriff Mike Carpinelli- is putting his hat into the ring to replace that angry moron, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  We hope he can beat that POS.   Elsewhere, the ex-Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund defended his performance on January 06, 2021, the day of the largest FALSE FLAG POLITICAL OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES and said he feared the ‘appearance of a coup d’ êtat.’   Finally, Wisconsin is considering a law making it mandatory to play the National Anthem in every public venue.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the BORDER CZAR now for 49 days and has yet to take her butt down to the southern border.  What the hell is up with that?
  76. 2021 Tuesday O: Environmental News I– Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, has extended the drought declaration to 41 counties.  It is sad that the state continues allowing fresh water to flow out to the Pacific Ocean rather than confining it behind the walls of new dams.   Meanwhile, the feds have approved the building of the first offshore wind farms.  Elsewhere, in a blow to the Green Meanies, a new report says that temperatures so far in 2021 are far lower than they have been in recent years.  Not good for idiots such as the ‘Squad’ and their push for the Green New Deal.  A win for us.
  77. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1658 with a $402 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 07, 08, 20, 36, 39 and Mega 22.  Out of 163,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $10,622 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys’ third album, “Surfer Girl,” released on September 16, 1963, was their greatest to date yet spawning numerous hits.  The band’s lineup was the same- Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals)- but Marks would be leaving soon.  The group knocked out a load of hits on this record- the title track to be sure but also “Catch a Wave,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “In My Room,” and “Hawaii.”  Brian Wilson was having to write at a much more furious pace what with the emphasis being on hits.  Father Murray Wilson, the group’s manager, kept them on a tight schedule of writing, recording, and performing, raking in as much money as was humanly possible and then some.  Great music to be sure, music we hope you will check out and enjoy because the Beach Boys are one of the all-time great American groups to be sure.

40. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 09, 2022

2021 Tuesday I: Good news for Christians and Jews: a judge strikes down New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s ban on religious gatherings at churches and synagogues (but you know the cowardly fool would NEVER close mosques- they’d take him out in a heartbeat). We learn today from immigration experts that the United States has 14.5 million illegal aliens and 5 million anchor babies which is conservative estimate to be sure.

  58. 2018 Friday A: In Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, famed rock-and-roll bassist Craig MacGregor, lost his fight with lung cancer on this date.  He was just 68.  He played for many years with the British rock, blues, and boogie band, Foghat, as well as with the short-lived British group, Axis Point.  The latter group featured Eddie Hardin on keyboards and vocals, Bob Tench on guitars and vocals, Charlie Whitney (guitars) and Rob Townsend (drums and percussion) formerly of Family, and MacGregor.
  59. 2019 Saturday: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth “I’m a Cherokee” Warren[v] announces her official bid for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in the city of Lawrence.  How this unattractive and dishonest individual thinks she can win the presidency is beyond any of us here at the AICP-END Blogs.  She has used one of the most maligned racial minorities in the history of the country as her springboard to virtually everything she has earned in life.  She should be disqualified.
  60. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to the ineptitude (or purposefulness, we are reserving judgment at present), the death toll of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu now stands at 910 people which is higher than the reported death toll of the SARS epidemic that broke out in 2002 and lasted until 2004.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Chi-Com warplanes conducting ‘military drills’ off the coast of the Republic of China- Taiwan- circle the freedom-loving island.  This leads the Taiwanese Defense Ministry to call out their belligerent neighbors for threatening their sovereignty.  (We should give Taiwan some nukes- just saying…).    
  61. 2021 Tuesday: Eighty-two different advocacy groups call on the Biden administration to end all federal executions.  Speaking of the Biden administration, he announced plans to fire ALL Trump-appointed U.S. federal attorneys.  However, the U.S. attorney overseeing the Hunter Biden probe is NOT going anywhere soon.  Next, Joe Biden’s nomination to head the OMB vows to work with the GOP following a row on Twitter.  As the ‘re-impeachment trial’ of Donald Trump opens, neither the former president nor the ‘current president’ are making any statements.   Regarding this bogus sham waste of time, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says the prosecutors’ arguments are ‘ambiguous’ this after Congressman Jaime Raskin laid out the ‘charges’ against the 45th president.   
  62. 2021 Tuesday A: In communist China, the World Health Organization personnel on site says, ‘the Wuhan Institute of Virology is the UNLIKELY origination point for the Chi-Vi, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu,  There you go, the WHO covers up for their Chinese masters.   Thanks to the Wuhan Virus Crisis, in the U.S.- unless relief comes soon- millions of small businesses could close by year’s end.  Many believe that this is precisely the game plan the Dems are using because if small businesses close, everyone will be working for the massive corporations.  This is a fascist form of government in which BIG CORPORATIONS are in bed with BIG GOVERNMENT as it was in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and in modern-day communist China.  Evil.   Speaking of fascism, Hong Kong denies bail to pro-democracy advocate Jimmy Lai.  Meanwhile, Iran says, “Western policies could force them into building nuclear bombs’ as though they are not already working on them lickety-split.
  63. 2021 Tuesday B: In another blow to the expectations of Californians being throttled by the Newsom Regime, California High-Speed Rail Authority is seeking another $4 billion to toss down the rabbit hole on this never-ending wealth redistribution scheme.  Elsewhere, in Arizona, the Republican-controlled state Senate loses a narrow vote in which the state’s leaders and GOP leadership wanted a full audit of the crappy Dominion Voting Systems machines used- ALLEGEDLY- to throw the 2020 Presidential Election to ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and away from President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, My Pillow creator and CEO Mike Lindell calls for an open public debate on the ALLEGED election chicanery Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software in the 2020 Presidential Election.  Amen.   Finally, Tampa Bay city government is busting the balls of Governor Ron DeSantis for not having worn a facemask at the Super Bowl.  These people doing the bitching are like body lice- annoying tidbits of nothing.
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: A federal judge in Texas has put a freeze on Joe Biden’s deportation ban.   Meanwhile, the New York Attorney General Leticia James urges the FDA to look into improving the standards on baby food.  Elsewhere, Ohio serial killer Anthony Sowell, a man who murdered 11 women of whom we know, died in prison.  Meanwhile, Mary Wilson- original founding member of the Supremes (later Diana Ross and the Supremes) dies at age 76.  Next, Palm Beach, Florida, says ‘Donald Trump can live at his own resort- Mar-a-Lago as long as he is a ‘bona fide employee.’  WTF?  Hotel magnates live in their hotels, who gives Palm Beach the right to determine who can live and who cannot live somewhere?   Finally, the pilot in the crash that killed Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and several other people is said to have become disoriented in heavy fog.
  65. 2021 Tuesday D: Tesla’s investment of $1.5 billion into Bitcoin drives a single Bitcoin up to $48,000.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate votes 56-44 that the second impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump is constitutional and can proceed.    One thing we learned today is that President Donald J. Trump authorized as many as 10,000 members of the National Guard to arrive in Washington, D.C. ahead of January 6, 2021, so as to maintain law and order.  Elsewhere, federal and state cybersecurity authorities are investigating an intrusion into Florida in which, an unknown entity sought to poison a town’s water supply.   Next, Senator Joe Manchin, Democrat, of the Senate Energy Committee begs Joe Biden not to scrap the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline.   Finally, Joe Biden’s pick to lead the CIA appears to be intricately linked to Chinese businessmen with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party- WTF, Joe?  Can you sell out our country quickly enough? 
  66. 2021 Tuesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 106,643,519 confirmed cases, +328,824, 2,330,839, confirmed deaths, +10,119, and 59,549,395 confirmed recoveries, +246,096.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,382,078 confirmed cases, up 114,433 from yesterday’s reporting, 470,660 confirmed deaths, UP 2,792, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least two weeks.  This tells us the Biden administration does not want them reported.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 141,265 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: 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: 3,430,685 confirmed cases, 44,470 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,500 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 326,625 confirmed cases, 4,540 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Carolina: currently, they have 802,820 confirmed cases, 10,046 confirmed deaths but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 696,528 confirmed cases, 5,171 confirmed deaths, and 633,313 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- France: they have 3,341,365 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 79,423 confirmed deaths, and 208,925 confirmed recoveries.   We will say this: the primary purpose of the Chi-Vi was to remove the threat of Trump- the Chi-Coms accomplished that goal.  The secondary goal (or so we believe) is to ‘cleanse the world’ of the old, the infirm, the sick, and the mentally disabled.  Anyone else who died from this Wuhan Institute of Virology lab-engineered virus is just collateral damage.  Shame on the Chi-Coms!
  69. 2021 Tuesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,375.83 DOWN 9.93 points (-0.032%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,007.70, UP 20.05 points (+0.14%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,911.23, DOWN 4.36 points (-0.11%).  The price of GOLD is $1,838.80 per troy oz., +1.30 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.33 per troy ounce, -0.07 (-0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,190.20 per troy oz, -4.20 (-0.45%) while the price of COPPER is $3.72 per pound, -0.000 (-0.04%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,320.60 per troy oz, -16.10 (-0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $58.38 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000022.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Good news for Christians and Jews: a judge strikes down New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s ban on religious gatherings at churches and synagogues (but you know the cowardly fool would NEVER close mosques- they’d take him out in a heartbeat).  We learn today from immigration experts that the United States has 14.5 million illegal aliens and 5 million anchor babies which is conservative estimate to be sure.  Sources within the federal government have said the estimates of illegal aliens are close to 30-50 million illegals and Joe Biden does not want to deport them.  Speaking of Usurper Joe, he says that by April of this year, he wants schools to be open at least ONE DAY per week.  Wow.  His wife, Dr. Jill Biden says the Biden administration is going to make junior college FREE.  Another bill the taxpayers are going to fund.  Meanwhile, U.S. Transportation Secretary Mayor Pete Buttigieg says the administration is thinking about demanding NEGATIVE COVID-19 TESTS before anyone can board an airplane.  Good going, Picolo Pete!
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: We learn this evening that Joe Biden’s pick to head the Central Intelligence Agency- William Burns- is…wait for it…closed tied to communist China.  WTF is going on.  Can the people selling the country out to the Chi-Coms at least be discreet about it?  This is insane.   Next Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Chuck Schumer are asking Biden to up the relief bill so that people will receive money for Chinese Virus burials of loved ones.  What else will the government spend our money on?  Elsewhere, Representative Lee Zeldin, R-NY, says that ‘both the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, were as predetermined as is the farce occurring in the U.S. Senate what with the ‘re-impeachment’ or ‘second impeachment’ of President Donald J. Trump.  (NOTE- I am writing a post this Saturday in which I lay out the real reason the Dems are doing what they’re doing, and it lies within what President Trump’s defense attorneys said- IF the Democrats genuinely believed that Trump was guilty of inciting an insurrection against the government, federal charges would be brought against him.  Period.  But they haven’t which screeches of bogus impeachment.  Well, like Doug Mackey, Democrats are reaching B-A-C-K to 2016 to go after their enemies so why NOT bring federal charges against Donald Trump whenever he announces he is going to run- or even better- when he wins the GOP nomination?  Never say never).
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: The famed Aunt Jemima brand has been renamed the Pearl Milling Company.  Meanwhile, we learn that this year’s Super Bowl ratings were the worst since 2007- coming in at 91 million viewers.  It’s been a strange year, folks what with the Chi-Com Bat Virus sweeping the globe, the one the W.H.O. now says came from the Wuhan wet market.   Elsewhere, a judge informs George Soros’ handpicked D.A. George Gascon in Los Angeles, California, that he cannot- we repeat CANNOT set the law aside and do whatever the hell he wants to do like not charge thugs and criminals because it’s RACIST.  Send Gascon to county…
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Here are the winning numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1632 with a $68 million big pot o’ cash up for grabs: 07, 18, 21, 31, 40, and Mega 09.  Out of 80,331 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,103 apiece.
  74. 2022 Wednesday: Amigos, ya saben lo que hay que hacer: quédense para conocer los acontecimientos del día como sólo yo puedo contarles…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s studio album, “Myths and Heroes,” came out on January 25, 2015, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 13 glorious tracks, all of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

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…

ENDNOTES:

[i] Beginning in 2019, Democratic Chairman of the Intel Committee- Adam Schiff, congressman from California- would employ the same tactics to bring down President Donald J. Trump but would fail…miserably.  The loser is a POS while Trump has done nothing his political enemies accuse of him doing.

[ii] In 2020, many believe this loser might throw his hat into the race for the Democratic Party’s 2020 nomination.  Go for it, John, go for it, you, and Hillary Clinton both and if Michelle wants to run, she should throw her bonnet into the running, too.

[iii] Millions of Americans believe there should be an asterisk after the name of the 44th president because they believe he was foreign-born thus being disqualified from holding the highest office in the land.  Many of us here at the AICP-END Blogs agree with this assessment and believe that most of the readership does, too.

[iv] Many speculate that Donald Trump funded this loser via strawmen so he would remain in the race mucking things up for others like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.  At one time, Gov. Kasich was a normal guy but like many left-leaning RINOS, somewhere along the way, he “lost it.”

[v] The previous Friday, most of the women of color working for “Lyin’ Liz” in Arizona left the office, citing hostile workplace issues.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

351. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2021

71. 2020 Thursday B: One American News Network (OAN) reported late yesterday evening on the ties Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, aka “Cocaine Mitch,” he has to communist China. His wife, Elaine Chao, is the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping magnate and that the Chi-Coms gave “Cocaine Mitch” $1 million to help in his re-election campaign. He and his wife apparently are extremely wealthy thanks to cultivation and investment by the Chi-Coms.

  67. 2018 Monday: A new report arises noting the Russian propaganda efforts to sway media and election on social media are much more intense than previously thought, especially their attempts at swaying the views of African Americans.  Everyone knows the Russians are scum and continue doing this just as other nations do- including the U.S.  It is what it is.   Meanwhile, U.S. Prime Minister Theresa May is facing challenges to her leadership as Brexit continues moving at a snail’s pace.   Elsewhere, CBS News says terminated producer Les Moonves, caught up in #MeToo charges, won’t receive his $120 million payout as he leaves the network.  Sucks to be him…
  68. 2019 Tuesday: The run-up to the impeachment vote of President Donald J. Trump continues as Congressman Jaime Raskin, D-MD, sitting in for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, and ranking member, Congressman Doug Collins, R-SC, appear before the House Rules Committee to hammer out the terms under which the impeachment trial will occur in the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, blasts Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, over his refusal to indulge the Democrat’s desire to call more witnesses noting that the Constitution says nothing about the Senate doing the work of the House.  The Senate serves as the jury in impeachment proceedings and nothing more.  F**k off, Chuck.
  69. 2020 Thursday: The U.S. government confirms the recent hacking of various departments.  Most believe it’s either Russia or communist China, possibly Iran.  Meanwhile, the House GOP urge President Donald J.

Milley meets with the Taliban to discuss the ongoing peace talks in Afghanistan.  Next, the Iranian government says they have ‘no doubts’ that Pro-China Joe Biden will not immediately rejoin the JCPOA.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin says the U.S. should extend the New Start Arms Control Treaty.  Putin also says he’s up in the air as to whether he will seek another term (yeah, right) in 2024. 
  71. 2020 Thursday B: One American News Network (OAN) reported late yesterday evening on the ties Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, aka “Cocaine Mitch,” he has to communist China.  His wife, Elaine Chao, is the daughter of a Chi-Com shipping magnate and that the Chi-Coms gave “Cocaine Mitch” $1 million to help in his re-election campaign.  He and his wife apparently are extremely wealthy thanks to cultivation and investment by the Chi-Coms.  Although we have heard these rumors before, we now believe them to be the truth thanks to his pushing aside of President Donald J. Trump from almost after the 2020 Presidential Election.  Shame on you, Senator McConnell, shame on you.
  72. 2020 Thursday C: A recent Emerson poll reports that Senator Kelly Loeffler holds a 3-point lead over far-left, pro-Nation of Islam bigot the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock in their Georgia run-off Senate race while her fellow Senator David Perdue is in a dead heat with pajama boy, Jon Ossoff.   Elsewhere, Google and parent company Alphabet are hit with their third anti-trust lawsuit over their abuse of market power.  Texas and nine other states are going after the corrupt entity, and we hope that they end up being broken up along with Facebook and Twitter.   Meanwhile, we hear that following Vice President Mike Pence holds the final confirmation count on January 6 in the U.S. Senate, he will then leave on an overseas trip. 
  73. 2020 Thursday D: Atlantic City is going to auction off the right to implode the former Trump Casino in that city.  Meanwhile, the Chinese Virus pandemic has caused 8 million Americans to fall into poverty over the last six months.  Elsewhere, due to redistricting beginning next year, political observers predict the GOP will recapture the House of Representatives in 2022.  That is, unless the Democrats use their fraudulent vote corruption and theft strategy, which many astute political observers such as we believe will cause the GOP NEVER to win another election ever.  Speaking of Democratic corruption, President Trump says thousands of dead people voted across Nevada in last month’s presidential election.  Might as well have added the illegal aliens, the felons, the incarcerated, the underage, the stupid, the ignorant, and the space aliens, too.
  74. 2020 Thursday E: Astronomers say they have detected radio transmissions from an exoplanet.  So far, astronomers have discovered more than 4,500 exoplanets orbiting other stars, but this is the first time they have discovered radio signals- or so they believe- coming from one of these planets.  Astronomers have reported the signals come from the Tau Boötes system, one that contains a binary star and an exoplanet.  They believe the emissions come from the planet itself.  The system if 51 light years from earth with a light year equaling approximately 6 trillion miles.  Quite a ways away, folks.
  75. 2020 Thursday F: President Donald J. Trump withholds $200 million in Medicaid money from California.   HHS Secretary Alex Azar will withhold the money over the state’s demand that insurers provide abortion coverage at taxpayers’ expense.   Meanwhile, the John Roberts’ U.S. Supreme Court rejects a Kentucky religious school’s desire to reopen despite the Chi-Vi lockdown.  Elsewhere, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announces a statewide ballot audit. Next, California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell keeps his lips zipped over his alleged lengthy ongoing affair with a Chi-Com MSS agent.   Finally, a Homeland Security Department watchdog blasts ICE for putting illegal aliens in solitary confinement and abusing them mentally.  Oh, boohoo, mojados, don’t come.

B. Pritzker.  
  78. 2020 Thursday I: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, states say Pfizer vaccine estimates for next week have been slashed.  Elsewhere, the FDA announces a study that may allow for homosexual and bisexual men to give blood donations, something that has never been allowed because of them spreading HIV-AIDS.  Finally, the CDC reports that drug overdose deaths in the U.S. over a 12-month period are the highest ever.  
  79. 2020 Thursday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,303.37, UP 148.83 points (+0.49%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,764.75, UP 106.56 points (+0.84%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,722.48, UP 21.31 points (+0.58%).  The price of GOLD is $1,885.20 per troy oz., -5.20 (-0.28%) while the price of SILVER is $26.02 per troy ounce, -0.166 (-0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,044.30 per troy oz, -5.80 (-0.55%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.0405 (+1.12%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,347.50 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.03%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.23 per barrel, -0.13 (-0.27%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.

  81. 2020 Thursday L: Folks, we encourage everyone to remain vigilant to discover what the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, Cubans, North Koreans, and the lackeys in the U.S., the Democrats are up to today…speaking of these scurrilous skunks, ‘President-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden informs the world that ‘he is not concerned with son Hunter’s increasing legal troubles’ regarding tax fraud, corruption, and dealing with hostile foreign powers.  Lock him up and throw away the key.   Regarding Hunter, President Trump says he has ‘nothing to do’ with any federal prosecution of “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s son. 
  82. 2021 Friday: Stick around…

  59. 2020 Sunday A: Now, interesting note here: people are criticizing Russia for not sharing their REAL stats, they say the number of deaths are too low.  Well, Russia said today they are only listing those citizens actually killed by the coronavirus and not those who might have died with the virus but from other things.  Would that not be great if the CDC would do the same thing and would it not be great if the CDC forced every state to report the actual statistics?  Here’s Russia’s stats: 281,752 confirmed cases, 2,631 confirmed deaths, and 67,373 confirmed recoveries.  IF anyone is lying about their numbers, it’s the communist Chinese, the nation that gave this crap to the entire world.  Here are their numbers: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  People’s Republic of China: NOTHING BUT LIARS.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final studio album released by Badfinger- “Head First”- came out on November 14, 2000 and it featured the following lineup: Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Bob Jackson (rhythm guitars, keyboards, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  You say, how can this be?  Some of these folks are dead?  Yep, true, absolutely true.  Here is the deal- 26 years ago- that’s correct- 26 years ago- while the band was on tour, their record company said YOU must record another album on the heels of “Wish You Were Here” trying to squeeze the last drop of output out of this tragedy-laced band.  Tired, frustrated, and with dissension in the ranks- Molland jumped ship- the group went into the studio and in two weeks created this album which then disappeared into the vaults.  Thus- 26 years later- “Head First” finally became available to the fans.  We enjoy it and suspect you will, too, because Pete Ham was a unique performer and vocalist.  Great album, please, seek it out and give it a good listen.  You will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Badfinger featuring Tom Evans (bass and vocals) and Joey Molland (guitars, pianos, and vocals) recruited new members Tony Kaye (keyboards), Glenn Sherba (guitars), and Richard Bryans (drums) and on January 17, 1981, released their next album, “Say No More.”  Say what you will about this eclectic power-pop band, over the years they created some wonderful music although most of the members were afflicted with personal tragedies.  The loss of Pete Ham to suicide always cast a dark pall over the group as would the upcoming suicide of Tom Evans.  This band could have been one of the all-time greats but beginning with their mistreatment at Apple Records through various managers and a Yoko Ono-like wife and one can see as to why their glorious musical future that might have been instead became very dark and morose.  Still, this album is an excellent one and we hope that everyone will seek it out and add it to their collections

  56. 2020 Sunday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis statistics for the globe: 4,710,614 confirmed cases, 315,023 confirmed deaths, and 1,732,344 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,516,343 confirmed cases, 89,932 confirmed deaths, and 281,192 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-bloggers, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, California first: 78,839 confirmed cases, 3,261 confirmed deaths, BUT NO number of confirmed recoveries: POLITICS.  Next up, Hawaii: 640 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 572 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, here is Washington state’s stats: 18,433 confirmed cases, 1,001 confirmed deaths, but, like California, 0 number of confirmed recoveries.
  57. 2020 Sunday A: Now, interesting note here: people are criticizing Russia for not sharing their REAL stats, they say the number of deaths are too low.  Well, Russia said today they are only listing those citizens actually killed by the coronavirus and not those who might have died with the virus but from other things.  Would that not be great if the CDC would do the same thing and would it not be great if the CDC forced every state to report the actual statistics?  Here’s Russia’s stats: 281,752 confirmed cases, 2,631 confirmed deaths, and 67,373 confirmed recoveries.  IF anyone is lying about their numbers, it’s the communist Chinese, the nation that gave this crap to the entire world.  Here are their numbers: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  People’s Republic of China: NOTHING BUT LIARS.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

#PF001.2b Radio K.A.O.S. #28 05-04-2020 (400)

 

Roger Waters is one of those unique musicians that must work constantly and here again, he delivers another concept album, this one entitled, “Radio K.A.O.S.,” an album that came out on June 15, 1987.  Joining the multi-instrumentalist/vocalist are Graham Bond (percussion/drums), Mel Collins (saxophones), Andy Fairweather Low (guitars), and loads of other musicians and vocalists to tell the story of an accidental murder and what happens in the aftermath.  We think everyone is going to enjoy this album as it is indeed a classic, one we know every fan of both the man and the band is going to enjoy.  Please, seek it out and consider adding it to your growing album collection as we know you are going to take great delight in it.  We thank you.
