It looks like employees can wear MAGA hats if they so choose. Speaking of the Trump administration, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows echoes statements made by Dr. Tony Fauci and other medical professionals that ‘if it’s okay to protest in the streets, it’s okay to vote in person.’ We wholeheartedly agree with this view.

It looks to be ‘another exciting night.’ Speaking of Democrats, former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty in federal court today for tampering with evidence. He is the first member of the Chinese communists-Democratic Party coup against Donald J. Trump. Prison for you and loss of the right to practice law. Stay tuned for more…
- 2020 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has suspended or canceled three bilateral agreements with Hong Kong since the Chi-Coms on the mainland have reneged on the guarantees they made with the citizens of the former British Crown Colony. Some of the agreements deal with tax exemptions from international shipping and extradition treaties, making the Beijing bullies angry yet again. Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their criminality, here are today’s stats for the novel coronavirus they purposely sent around the planet:
- 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 22,218,441 confirmed cases, UP by 244,048 cases, 782,883 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,726 deaths, and 14,156,538 confirmed recoveries, UP by 222,006 recoveries.

(The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).
- 2020 Wednesday G: 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: 638,831 confirmed cases, 11,523 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,349 confirmed cases, 41 confirmed deaths, and 1,921 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 68,264 confirmed cases, 1,801 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced 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, Colorado: 53,901 confirmed number of cases, 1,900 confirmed number of deaths, but like other Blue State locales, NO mention of recoveries in the mile-high state.
- 2020 Wednesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,692.88, DOWN 85.19 points (-0.31%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,146.46, DOWN 64.38 points (-0.57%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,374.85, DOWN 14.93 points (-0.44%). The price of GOLD is $1,943.70 per troy oz., -26.60 (-1.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.96 per troy ounce, -0.38 (-1.39%).
