Jeanette Nunez, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, anti-abortion advocate Abby Johnson, Maine Lobsterman Jason Joyce, Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer, Mary Ann Mendoza, a mother who lost her son to an illegal drunken driver, Nicolas Sandman, the kid vilified by the press for supposedly being ‘disrespectful to a Native American elder who turned out to be a fraud, as well as other surprise guests.

- 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 23,694,646 confirmed cases, UP by 269,802 cases, 814,354 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,638 deaths, and 15,381,104 confirmed recoveries, UP by 230,337 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,850,278 confirmed cases, UP by 56,817 new cases, 180,375 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,046 new deaths, and 2,980,604 confirmed recoveries, UP by 33,332 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. It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true.
- 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: 673,095 confirmed cases, 12,257 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,769 confirmed cases, 49 confirmed deaths, and 2,172 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,456 confirmed cases, 1,872 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: 430,774 confirmed number of cases, 32,864 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries. Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo! Give us the honest numbers you putrid piece of culvert muck, 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: 28,248.44, DOWN 60.02 points (-0.21%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,466.47, UP 86.75 points (+0.76%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,443.62, UP 12.34 points (+0.36%). The price of GOLD is $1,935.00 per troy oz., +11.90 (+0.62%) while the price of SILVER is $26.55 per troy ounce, +0.277 (+1.05%).

As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.91 communist Chinese yuan. By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros. Communist China manipulates its currency.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Electric Light Orchestra released their fourth, albeit a limited live release, “The Night the Light went on in Long Beach,” on May 10, 1974. Back in the day, the Light was one of the best live bands on the face of the earth. They could cook, they could rock, and wild they were, much like their predecessor band, the Move. The band featured Jeff Lynne (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Bev Bevin (drums/percussion), Richard Tandy (keyboards, guitars, backing vocals), Mike du Albuquerque (bass, backing vocals), Mike Edwards (cello), Mik Kaminski (violin), Ted Blight and Hugh McDowell (cello). This album features some of the best material and eventually would be re-released several decades later. We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your collection. You will enjoy it. The only sad thing here is that the version of “Roll Over Beethoven” is not all that long. Sad.
