- 2020 Wednesday A: The Chinese-created COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Virus continues causing problems and some scientists now say the virus is engineered ‘perfectly’ in that it can morph into variations that a normal virus could not. Thank you, communist China, but the AICPENDBLOG.COM believed from the beginning that the Wuhan Flu’s appearance was too ‘coincidental’ to show up shortly after the communist Chinese lower level signatories to the U.S.-China Trade Deal. That is not right. Here are the statistics for today for the world: 5,651,806 confirmed cases, 353,246 confirmed deaths, and 2,325,989 confirmed recoveries.
- 2020 Wednesday B: In the United States, we have 1,730,136 confirmed cases, 101,356 confirmed deaths, and 369,460 confirmed recoveries. It is important to note that recoveries would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics with the disease. To us, this demonstrates evidence of the COLLUSION between communist China and the Democratic Party, something that must be investigated if the American people are ever to learn the truth. In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the statistics, California first: 98,980 confirmed cases, 3,884 confirmed deaths, BUT ZERO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which confirms for us that Governor Gavin Newsom is doing nothing but playing politics. In Hawaii, here are the numbers: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the socialist non-paradise of Washington state, here are the stats: 20,181 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. (It is interesting to note that Chef Vladimir says that prior to mail-in ballots in the state became the norm, the state was a reliable RED in every election as it will be again when people return to voting in the normal way).

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The next retrospective Pink Floyd album, “1967: The First Three Singles,” came out on August 04, 1997, and it featured SIX big tunes from the earliest days of the band. One finds the classic first single, “Arnold Layne,” a Syd Barrett delight along with “Candy and a Currant Bun,” “See Emily Play” and “Scarecrow” and “Apples and Oranges” and “Paint Box.” Syd Barrett wrote the first five songs and Rick Wright did the last one, so fans get both the ‘A’s’ and the ‘B’s’ all in one place. We hope you will seek this effort out and add it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in psychedelic rock music. We thank you.
