In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the World-Famous AICPENDBLOG.COM, has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers first for the Golden State: 200,461 confirmed cases, 5,812 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

Meanwhile, the Nancy Pelosi-controlled House passes a bill giving statehood to the District of Columbia. It won’t pass in the U.S. Senate nor will a majority of the states confirm it in votes. The Democrats are such scurrilous scumbags that they will resort to anything to add two more senators to the U.S. Senate as well as a congresswoman Eleanor Norton Holmes as well as surround the White House with angry mobs. California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Democrat, one of the biggest crooks in the lower chamber says, ‘if the district does not receive statehood, it’s because of…RACISM!’ Screw her.
