- 70 AD: The Roman legions under the command of General Titus set the Second Temple of Jerusalem alight during the Great Jewish War. The Romans had laid siege to Jerusalem due to a Jewish uprising and their murdering of a retreating Roman legion given ‘safe passage.’ This put in motion events that would lead to the destruction of the city, the ‘Wailing Wall’ being the only part of the city the Romans were unable to tear down. Eventually, survivors who managed to escape the dying city would flee to Masada where the Romans would follow and destroy them.

- 2016 Wednesday: Candidate Donald J. Trump slams the ‘dishonest news media’ for misinterpreting his comments on how a ‘President Hillary Clinton will abolish the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.’ Sounds like the truth to everyone with half-a-mind or more; let’s see who wins in November…
- 2017 Thursday: U.S. President Donald J. Trump announces that opioid addiction in the country now is a national emergency. It has been for quite a while thanks to the People’s Republic of China continuing to ship fentanyl and other opiates into the United States as a reverse opium war of sorts. People, time to start pushing the Chin back. Meanwhile, as the #MeToo Movement continues to grind on, a sobbing Taylor Swift announces that deejay David Mueller groped her in Denver, Colorado. Uh, okay…
- 2018 Friday: The U.N. Committee on Human Rights receives word that the Chi-Coms have one million Uighurs- at least!- in concentration camps in western China where they provide slave labor to American sports team making gear and other paraphernalia while being indoctrinated with ‘how great Xi Jinping and Maoism are’ while being forced to surrender their religious beliefs.

[iv] Elsewhere, police find financier Jeffrey Epstein dead in his jail cell, apparently from a self-inflicted hanging. No one knows anything…
- 2020 Monday: The Chi-Coms today sanctioned 11 U.S. politicians or business heads, all of them Republicans or with organizations promoting democracy, seemingly in a feeble attempt at ‘punishing America’ for punishing them over their misdeeds in Hong Kong and elsewhere as well as for giving the world the Chinese Bat Plague. Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, here are today’s statistics:
- 2020 Monday A: Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 19,936,547 confirmed cases, +202,119, 732,467 confirmed deaths, +3,855, and 12,144,510 confirmed recoveries, +142,973. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,159,740 confirmed cases, UP by 38,647 new cases, 165,118 confirmed deaths, UP by 477 new deaths, and 2,511,602 confirmed recoveries, UP by 13,023 new recoveries. 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: 561,911 confirmed cases, 10,359 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,498 confirmed cases, 31 confirmed deaths, and 1,548 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,445 confirmed cases, 1,695 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats.
- 2020 Monday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,791.44, UP 257.96 points (+1.30%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,968.36, DOWN 42.63 points (-0.39%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,360.47, UP 9.19 points (+0.27%). Currently, GOLD is at $2,039.00 per troy oz., DOWN -0.70 (-0.03%), SILVER is at $29.36 per troy oz., UP 0.094 (0.32%), PLATINUM $1,006.10 per troy oz. UP +3.40 (+0.34%), and COPPER is at $2.87 # +0.005 (+0.34%). Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.00, UP +0.06 (+0.14%). Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.96 Chi-Com yuan. In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
- 2020 Monday C: President Trump begins a press conference in the White House Press Room when an aide interrupts him and leads him away. Apparently shots were fired a few blocks from the White House. Moments later, Secret Service had it under control and the president reappeared and continued his press conference. He answered all questions and when done, exited the room. Currently, “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads the president in national polls by approximately 49.2-percent to the president’s 42.00-percent.
- 2020 Monday D: Speaking of the Chi-Coms earlier, the MSS begins arresting pro-democracy figures across Hong Kong, including arresting media mogul Jimmy Lai and his son, among others, as the communists begin implementing their new bogus ‘security law.’ The time is coming when the United States is going to have to give the commies in Beijing a major black eye. How a return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as a free, independent nation, and the rightful ruler of the mainland. FREE TAIWAN! FREE HONG KONG! FREE TIBET! FREE MACAU! FREE UIGHUR MUSLIMS! DEATH TO COMMUNISM!
- 2020 Monday E: A U.S. military helicopter out of Joint Base Andrews was hit by groundfire over Middleburg, Va., today, wounding one crewmember aboard. The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing at a regional airport in Manassas. The FBI is investigating. Meanwhile, over the weekend in Chicago, 34 people are shot, 3 of them fatally. Will it never flipping end? How long have Democrats controlled the Windy City?
