Next, here are the numbers for the United States, the main target of the communist Chinese for the Kung Flu: 2,626,841 confirmed cases, an increase of 35,388 new cases, 127,994 confirmed deaths, an increase of 320, and 799,527 confirmed recoveries, an increase of 12,604.

Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 872 confirmed cases, 18 confirmed deaths, and 714 confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for Washington state: 31,752 confirmed cases, 1,310 confirmed deaths, but sadly like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these worthless scumbags who manipulate the numbers and won’t publish the recoveries. It’s all about politics.
- 2020 Monday B: Bret Baier of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” reports that U.S. intelligence confirmed that Vladimir Putin’s Russia paid bounties to the Taliban to kill U.S. and Coalition troops. The question is whether President Donald J. Trump was briefed on this issue or not (the president says he was NOT) which has caused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring up ‘Trump-Russia collusion again. Uh, okay. Are we going to see another ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ investigation again? Give it a break. Here are today’s Stock Market numbers: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,595.80, UP 580.25 points (2.32%); NASDAQ: 9,874.15, UP 116.93 points (1.20%); the S&P 500: 3,053.24, UP 44.19 (1.47%).
- 2020 Monday C: U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts joins the four liberal justices on the court to smack down the Louisiana abortion law. Once again, court watchers are shocked. Roberts has joined the liberal justices in more rulings as of late which has led many to ask, WTF is going on with the man? On the other hand, the nation’s highest court upheld the president’s ability to terminate the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an entity that claims to be autonomous but which is part of the Executive Branch. Awesome.
