- 2018 Tuesday: The Mendocino Fire overtakes the 2017 Thomas Fire as California’s worst wildfire ever as it is credited with scorching more than 290,600 acres. The reason for these out-of-control wildfires in the Golden State is poor forest management by state authorities. They would rather kiss the rear-ends of environmentalist groups than to do what is right by the people of the state- the U.S. citizens, that is. Meanwhile, the ‘democratic’ People’s Republic of China bans the Disney movie, “Christopher Robin” (from Winnie the Pooh fame) because the character had the audacity to mock the communist thug running the country, Xi Jinping.

The entire eastern part of Canada had been in an uproar and law enforcement authorities were scouring large areas searching for the two scumbags.
- 2020 Friday: Prior to President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Ohio the previous day, Republican Governor Mike DeWine claimed to have had a positive test for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. Today, his office declared it to be a false alert, that he did NOT have the Wuhan Virus. Well, we know that Governor DeWine is a RINO and that he does not want to appear with President Trump so there you go. What a shame. Meanwhile, employment statistics for the month of July show a net gain of 1.763 million new jobs filled, that unemployment in the country had dropped to 10.2 percent and that of all the jobs gained, one-third of them were in the leisure and hospitality industry. Unemployment for all categories is down but especially for black and Hispanic Americans. No matter what the Democrats do, they cannot cripple the economy. Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo says that schools in the Empire State will reopen in the fall for all students. Finally, “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues trying to clarify his statements from earlier in the week that he is ‘not a racist’ and that he ‘loves black folks.’ Uh, okay, Joe, okay. We KNOW you are a racist and that since your earliest days in the U.S. Senate, you have backed every segregationist move that came your way. Enough is enough, already!
- 2020 Friday A: Various teachers’ unions around the country continue sniveling and whining about ‘how dangerous it is for them to return to the classrooms in the fall due to Wuhan Virus Crisis concerns,’ to which, we say, “IF you can’t do it, then step the hell aside and allow others to do the job” as well as urge President Trump to find ways by which to terminate all teachers who will not return to the classrooms. We must find ways by which, we can crush public sector employees unions because this is bulls**t. Besides, teachers’ unions want to defund cops, make the Green New Deal real, and all manner of left-wing socialist crap. However, one way by which, we can make sure the kids and teachers can socially distant is to DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR KIDS and you will find classrooms 50-percent vacant. DO THIS NOW! Never let a good crisis like the Chinese Virus go to waste, DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS BUT ESPECIALLY THEIR KIDS! Once done, the test scores of American children will skyrocket as they won’t have to restrict their pace to that of the ignorant illegals. Meanwhile, news hits that the Democratic Party does NOT want the “Baby Evita,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka AOC, to speak at their upcoming convention. Who can blame them? The girl is bat crap stupid! Elsewhere, the Democrats in Congress continue demanding a $3 trillion COVID-19 relief bill atop the previous trillion dollars spent on this Chi-Com lab-engineered pandemic. If anyone should be $3 trillion, it should be the Democratic Party’s masters in Beijing!
- 2020 Friday B: The president of Lebanon- Michel Aoun- announces that one of two things sparked the ginormous explosion that toppled much of the port section of Beirut on Tuesday: human error or human intent. He asked the president of France for help in determining if a missile or an aircraft in the vicinity might somehow have caused the godawful explosion that has killed close to 200 people, injured 4,000 or more, as well as caused the disappearances of numerous others. The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes it was an Iranian weapons cache that a moron dropped a cigarette butt into or the Israeli Mossad took action to stop a Hezbollah (we put nothing past POS murderer Hassan Nasrallah) or Hamas plot against them.
- 2020 Friday C: Here are today’s Chi-Com Virus Statistics for the globe: 19,160,806 confirmed cases, UP by 407,889 cases, 716,083 confirmed deaths, UP by 9,741 deaths, and 11,605,114 confirmed recoveries, UP by 303,093 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,001,681 confirmed cases, UP by 54,024 new cases, 162,419 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,147 new deaths, and 2,454,578 confirmed recoveries, UP by 22,449 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
- 2020 Friday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 538,416 confirmed cases, UP 8,436 cases, 10,011 confirmed deaths, UP by 142, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,914 confirmed cases, UP by 151, 29 confirmed deaths, UP by 2, and 1,440 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 60,917 confirmed cases, UP by 833, 1,653 confirmed deaths, UP by 29, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats.
- 2020 Friday E: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,433.48, UP 46.50 points (+0.17%). Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ: 11,010.98, DOWN 97.09 points (-0.87%). Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,351.28, UP 2.12 points (+0.063%). Price of GOLD: $2,046.10 per troy oz., +18.10 (+0.89%) Here is the price of SILVER: $28.40 per troy oz., +0.86 (+3.12%). Price of PLATINUM: $982.60 per troy oz., +11.60 (+1.20%). Here is the price of COPPER: $2.79 per #, -0.002 (-0.07%). Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.60, +0.38 (+0.92%). Today, one dollar U.S. = 6.97 PRC yuan.
- 2020 Friday F:Joe Biden’s overall national poll has dropped to a lead of 6.8 percent over President Donald J. Trump. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump announces he will extend unemployment benefits to the end of the year. He says he will forgo school loan repayments for the time being and that evictions will be put on hold until some time in the fall. He also announces aid for Lebanon in the aftermath of what appears more likely to have been a terrorist attack in that beautiful nation. President Trump also says- yet again- that the Dept. of Homeland Security is ready, willing and able to go into Portland, Oregon, and end the 76 straight days of rioting that has been trashing that once beautiful city. It is clear that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is in league with the Marxist scum. We say, “Send in former Blackwater Special Ops and WHACK ‘em!”
