In the United States, here are the numbers: 1,910,843 confirmed cases, 109,639 confirmed deaths, but 437,251 confirmed recoveries, the last number of which would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics.

Shame on him. In the Aloha State, here are the stats: 653 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 609 confirmed recoveries which is incredibly good. Thank you, Governor David Ige, perhaps you can urge Gavin Newsom and Jay Inslee to do the same? Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 22,729 confirmed cases, 1,138 confirmed deaths, but much like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries which says it’s all about politics.
  54. 2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment. About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life. Harmeet Dhillon launches a lawsuit on behalf of beaten journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon, last year. Get them, Harmeet!  Again, we must say that the majority of us writing for the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believe that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party who channels Beijing’s dark money to its various action groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa. Time to bring ALL of them down.
