- 2020 Saturday: The Chinese Bat Flu continues causing problems around the world but such is communism: they either released it on purpose or are so inept that no other country around the world should trust them to do anything above fifth-grade level science. Here are the global stats for today: 6,855,858 confirmed cases, 398,321 confirmed deaths, and 3,071,403 confirmed recoveries the last number of which, compared to deaths, is exceptionally good.
- 2020 Saturday A: Here are the stats for the United States, where communist Beijing sent it to do the most damage: 1,959,009 confirmed cases, 111,374 confirmed deaths, and 457,721 confirmed recoveries. Next, in the three states- California, Hawaii, and Washington- where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, here is California first: 126,016 confirmed cases, 4,559 confirmed deaths, and as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, in the Aloha State where Gov. David Ige- unlike California’s Gov. Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Washington’s Gov. Jay Inslee reports FULL figures. Here we go: 664 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 614 confirmed recoveries.

- 2020 Saturday B: For a laugh, let’s look at the numbers communist China recently posted: 83,036 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,332 confirmed recoveries. However, our sources in Hong Kong tell us the following numbers: at least 2,890,000 confirmed cases, 1,460,000 confirmed deaths, and about 1,430,000 confirmed recoveries. Not sure whether our sources are 100-percent reliable but if so, it demonstrates once again that communists always lie.
