As usual, rampaging rioters set fire to numerous stores and shops, causing mayhem wherever they went. Antifa and Black Lives Matter are always lurking in the shadows. Thank you, Xi Jinping, thank you, George Soros for funding this anti-American mayhem.
- 2017 Wednesday: Poor President Donald J. Trump, who’d faced harsh criticism for initially blaming the deadly weekend violence in Charlottesville, Va., on “many sides” (which was flipping TRUE), told reporters that there were ‘very fine people on both sides,’ of the confrontation and that groups protesting against the white supremacists were ‘also very violent’ which they were. In between those statements, at the urgings of aides, Trump had offered a more direct condemnation of white supremacists. What Trump was saying is that many of the people there were protesting against the removal of Confederate war memorial statues and were not all white supremacists yet the FAKE NEWS media once again twists the story to fit their narrative that Trump is a racist.

- 2020 Saturday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 21,280,608 confirmed cases, UP 243,665, 767,422 confirmed deaths, UP 5,496, and 13,290,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 241,905. In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 5,403,756 confirmed cases, UP 50,148 new cases, 170,632 confirmed deaths, UP 998, and 2,733,055 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,926. Next, in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 613,689 confirmed cases, 11,147 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a mildewed POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. In Hawaii, here are the stats: 4,543 confirmed cases, 40 confirmed deaths, and 1,756 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 66,139 confirmed cases, 1,755 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Arkansas, the “Natural State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics. The number of cases in the state is 52,392 while the number of deaths is 600. The number of confirmed recoveries is 44,905. Thank you, Governor Asa Hutchinson for your honesty and integrity.
- 2020 Saturday A: Let’s look at the second-highest nation infected with the Wuhan Virus, Brazil: the South American nation has 3,317,0996 cases of Xi Jinping’s gift to the world what with 107,232 deaths, and 2,384,302 recoveries. India is the third highest nation infected with this dastardly, lab-engineered virus what with 2,589,208 confirmed cases, 50,084 confirmed deaths, and 1,860,672 confirmed recoveries. Russia comes in fourth what with 917,884 confirmed cases, 15,617 confirmed deaths, and 729,411 confirmed recoveries. Now, let’s look at the Chi-Coms, the place where this needless disaster began: last week, they come in 30th among nations but this week have dropped to 32nd place (yeah, right) with 84,808 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths (same as last week), and 79,519 confirmed recoveries (although our sources in Hong Kong and Macau tell us they are 10-12-times higher than reported which sounds about right for the main communist hellhole on the planet. Shame on them and damn them for the crime they have committed on the world).
- 2020 Saturday B: After the NYPD union endorses President Donald J. Trump, New York Democrats go berserk, particularly the little communist skank, your friend and ours, the Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, former barmaid in the Big Apple, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, now known as AOC. Not sure what these frigging Democrats expected but we predict that all across the United States, one law enforcement union after another is going to endorse President Donald J. Trump. To tell you the truth, we expect Richard Trumka and the AFL-CIO to fall in line behind President Trump because in SOCIALIST-COMMUNIST countries, labor unions are for show while in FREE nations such as the United States, Labor serves a purpose and unions represent the workers. As long as they don’t try to devour businesses but work with them, amazing things can be accomplished. Trumka- get with it: NOW.
- 2020 Saturday C: Robert Trump, President Trump’s younger brother, died of an unknown illness at age 72. He was a Trump Org. executive and a much more private member of the family although he supported his brother’s presidency.

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The next studio album by the Move- the acclaimed “Shazam”- came out on February 19, 1970. The band featured Carl Wayne (vocals/guitars), Roy Wood (guitars/vocals), Trevor Burton (bass/vocals), Rick Price (bass/vocals), and Bev Bevan (drums/percussion/vocals) but following this album, both Burton and Wayne would be in the column of ex-members. We take great delight in this album because of all the unsung bands of the wild and crazy 1960s-early 1970s, the Move deserves a higher place in the pantheon of English rock gods. This album would also serve as a conduit to what would be coming next- the Electric Light Orchestra, one of the all-time greatest bands. Please, seek it out and add it to your collection, you will be glad you did…
