Here are the stats for the globe for today: 19,734,428 confirmed cases, UP 253,098 cases, 728,612 confirmed deaths, UP 5,013, and 12,001,537 confirmed recoveries, UP 199,690.

The question is, WHEN are the Chi-Coms going to pay the GIGANTIC PRICE for their crimes?
- 2020 Sunday A: In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington state- here are the stats, Golden State first: 554,160 confirmed cases, 10,293 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 3,346 confirmed cases, thirty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,511 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 66,523 confirmed cases, 1,688 confirmed deaths, and like other mostly BLUE locales, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. For the heck of it, let us look at Alabama. Here are their numbers: 100.173 confirmed cases, 1,755 confirmed deaths, but like many other states, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let us hope there is light at the end of the tunnel…
- 2020 Sunday B: People still await the VP pick of “Pro-China Joe” Biden. We hope to hear it soon but speculation abounds about two things: is it possible that whomever the former VP chooses to be his number two will be such a bottom-level loser such as Stacey Abrams or Gretchen Whitmer because no one of substance wishes to be on a doomed ticket or could what Chef Cheryl will write about in tomorrow’s blog post- Monday, August 10, 2020- could we see a NEW Obama-Biden ticket, one in which, Michelle Obama will be at the top and Dr. Jill Biden at the bottom? Think about it. Be sure to read tomorrow’s blog post.
- 2020 Sunday C: In Chicago, after false reports of the Chicago PD executing a young black man in the streets, mobs rush out and begin attacking upscale stores and neighborhoods along the ‘Magnificent Mile,’ beating, burning, rioting, and looting like a bunch of lunatics. The following day, Mayor Lori Lightfoot would berate her citizens but what does it matter? Nothing changes. Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., a mass shooting occurs between black citizens leaving one dead and another twenty injured in varying degrees. Mainstream media remained mum on both incidents but Tucker Carlson at Fox News had the balls to both report it the following day and show video of the incidents. Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon, rioting lunatics assault an elderly woman simply because she forgot to wear her mask in public. Time to start whacking and stacking, folks. Gun sales continue going UP!
- 2020 Sunday D: Speaking of guns, a tragedy occurs in Wilson, North Carolina, as a man named Darius Sessoms, 25-years-old, walked across their street and shot his five-year-old neighbor, Cannon Hinnant, in the head as he rode his bicycle in front of his home. The child was white while the shooter was black. Sadly, the news media has done its best to let this story go unreported. Go figure. Police are investigating but said the ‘shooting was not random.’
- 2021 Monday: Friends, I am the Voice of Freedom broadcasting to you from the hellhole of Los Angeles, California, a place beset by unnecessary lockdowns, restrictions, illegal aliens running amok, and a bastion of our beloved governor, “Nazi” Newsom. Time to overthrow the existing order and it’s going to happen on September 14, 2021. Stick around for the latest anti-Chi-Com news, politics, Chi-Vi updates, and news about the border crisis…

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Eclectic musician Ian Anderson decided to do ‘round #2’ on his ‘Thick as a Brick” concept album of forty years ago and delivered “Thick as a Brick 2” on April 02, 2012. Like the earlier concept album in which a young child became a poetic genius, Ian Anderson picked up with the kid now a full-grown adult who has a follow-up. Most fans of both Jethro Tull and of Mr. Anderson understand “Thick as a Brick” was more a jab at ravenous, meatgrinder record companies than it was meant to be a commercial success and thus we continue forward in that mode. For fans of the man and of both his band and solo works, we hope you will seek this one out at your favorite site for the best in rock music and consider adding it to your collection- we think you will be glad you did.
