Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
- 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it’s NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly). She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee. It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, seeing as how dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India. There you go. If we were you, Joe, we’d sleep with one eye open from this point forward.
- 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02. She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off 100 officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics. We are sad to see you go, chief! Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today. Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah. Go to it, folks, go to it.
- 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,185,153 confirmed cases, UP by 227,115 cases, 738,800 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,911 deaths, and 12,450,681 confirmed recoveries, UP by 292,606 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,224,867 confirmed cases, UP by 65,127 new cases, 166,456 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 2,623,403 confirmed recoveries, UP by 111,801 new recoveries. We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
- 2020 Tuesday C: 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: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, 34 confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN). Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo! Give us the honest numbers you malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed. People are going to sue YOU. Shame on you.
- 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,686.91, DOWN 104.53 points (-0.38%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,782.82, DOWN 185.53 points (-1.69%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,333.69, DOWN 26.78 points (-0.80%). The price of GOLD is $1,926.70 per troy oz., -19.60 (-1.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.38 per troy ounce, -0.669 (-2.57%). The price of PLATINUM is $942.00 per troy oz, -29.40 (-3.03%) while the price of COPPER is $2.85 per pound, -0.026 (-0.90%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.60 per barrel, -0.01 (-0.02%). As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.94 communist Chinese yuan. By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros. Communist China manipulates its currency.
