EEE. 2020 Tuesday: Thanks to infusion of dark money from the Chinese Communist Party (or so the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes), unrest in American cities continues unabated. Many cities- both large and small- continue to suffer violent riots and angry protests, supposedly over the murder of George Floyd but now, many are not so sure. At the same time, the Chinese Wuhan Virus Bat Flu continues causing problems which is somewhat redundant as both the riots and the disease are Beijing’s response to Trump out-negotiating them on the U.S.-communist China Trade Deal.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: Thanks to infusion of dark money from the Chinese Communist Party (or so the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes), unrest in American cities continues unabated.  Many cities- both large and small- continue to suffer violent riots and angry protests, supposedly over the murder of George Floyd but now, many are not so sure.   At the same time, the Chinese Wuhan Virus Bat Flu continues causing problems which is somewhat redundant as both the riots and the disease are Beijing’s response to Trump out-negotiating them on the U.S.-communist China Trade Deal.  Here are the COVID-19 stats for the planet today: 6,325,603 confirmed cases, 377,460 confirmed deaths, but 2,727,679 confirmed recoveries which is excellent, as far as recoveries go.
  58. 2020 Tuesday A: In the United States- the place hardest hit by the Bat Flu, here are the numbers for today:  1,866,279 confirmed cases, 107,506 confirmed deaths, but 416,319 confirmed recoveries.  Note: U.S. recoveries would be much, much higher if MOST Blue State governors would not conceal the numbers which would make the number of deaths appear far less.  Shame on them.  Moving on, in the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 115,310 confirmed cases, 4,286 confirmed deaths, but Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  Next, in Hawaii, here are the numbers: 652 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 608 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Governor David Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, here are the numbers: 22,130 confirmed cases, 1,129 confirmed deaths, but that dingbat Governor Jay Inslee won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.   
  59. 2021 Wednesday: Folks, we encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever the flipping Chi-Coms and their stooges in the White House are up to today…
