Trump with a crime was never an option as there is no legal means with which to do so; however, the befuddled old fool says his report ‘does not exonerate the president either.’ Alas, the anti-Trump coup cooked up by President Barack Hussein Obama implodes, causing much embarrassment to the coup plotters.
- 2020 Friday: COVID-19 continues racking up numbers; however, with all the riots in the streets in various nations around the United States regarding the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis cops, people are NOT social distancing nor are they wearing masks to protect themselves from the Chinese Virus; no, they are wearing them to protect their identities as they slander the memory of the murdered man by looting and burning down businesses, at least 130 as of this moment. They also burned down brand-new low-income housing leaving the residents of the community out in the streets.
- 2020 Friday A: Here are the global statistics for the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Chinese Bat Flu: 5,885,490 confirmed cases, 363,061 confirmed deaths, and 2,468,011 confirmed recoveries. In the United States, here are the national stats: 1,779,204 confirmed cases, 104,007 confirmed deaths, and 382,023 confirmed recoveries. As you know, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors in three U.S. states: California, Hawaii, and Washington. Here are the stats for the Golden State: 103,886 confirmed cases, 4,068 confirmed deaths, BUT ONCE AGAIN, NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries. In Hawaii, these are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 604 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the (questionable) stats: 21,013 confirmed cases, 1,111 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION as to confirmed recoveries which informs the serious reader that it’s all about politics.
- 2020 Friday B: President Trump tells the World Health Organization that we will no longer be donating to this bought-and-paid-for-organization of Beijing. Of course, liberals are screeching and wailing over this in the same way they are trying to blame President Trump for what is taking place in Minnesota and across the country regarding George Floyd. He also puts communist China on notice that IF they continue trying to crackdown on Hong Kong during the Bat Flu Virus Crisis, they will find the United States opposing them and their authoritarian policies (FREE Hong Kong! FREE Tibet! FREE Macau! FREE Taiwan! FREE Mainland China!). Liberals are wailing over this, too. Regarding Minnesota, the cop who had a major role in murdering Mr. Floyd- former Officer Derek Chauvin- was taken into custody today and charged with murder.
- 2020 Friday C: Not only in Minneapolis, Minnesota, riots break out across the nation, in Brooklyn, in Dallas, in Phoenix, in Atlanta, even in Bakersfield, California, home to the AICPENDBLOG.COM. Outside the White House, hostile crowds continue battling with uniformed Secret Service officers, dressed in riot gear. Chef Lilah Paulikovich says that “IF you do not believe that the collusion between the Democratic Party and communist China does not exist, how are these well-funded, inorganic, well-coordinated riots occurring? It is a concerted effort to make President Trump look as bad as possible and a sign that the summer of 2020 is going to resemble the summer of 1968. Still, President Trump will win re-election and it is interesting to note that it’s Blue States and Blue Cities where rioting is occurring. Law enforcement: your sacred duty is to protect life and property: start busting heads.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Roger Waters released his next album, “In the Flesh,” on December 05, 2000. This is a live album featuring music from both the Floyd as well as from his solo catalog, all compiled from a lengthy three-year tour. There is no denying that Mr. Waters is not one of the most talented, most accomplished singer-songwriter-poet-player and it’s always nice hearing him perform his tunes, both from the Floyd catalog as well as from his solo one. The man has a superb band accompanying him and if you close your eyes and open your ears, you almost think you are listening to Pink Floyd on a powerful night. We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your catalog so you can enjoy for years to come. Believe us, you will love it.
