Meanwhile, in a pointed but mostly symbolic expression of displeasure with Moscow, President George W. Bush canceled a once-celebrated civilian nuclear cooperation deal with Russia. The reason for this move is because of Russia’s August invasion that same year of neighboring Georgia, a move that caused it to absorb several ‘break-away’ provinces, South Ossetia, and Abkhazia.

- 2014 Monday: Many children across ten states have undergone hospitalization due to Enterovirus, EV-D68; children with asthma are particularly at risk for complications. The virus reportedly has found new life in the U.S. thanks to President Barack Obama[v] allowing Third World Central American children to flood the U.S. from across the Mexican border. Elsewhere, Ray Rice was let go by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL after the release of a video in which the running back struck his fiancée, Janay Palmer, in an elevator in February 2014.
- 2015 Tuesday: Prime Minister David Cameron announces that a recent drone strike in Syria took out two British citizens serving in the Islamic State. Both men—Reyaad Khan and Ruhul Amin—died in the British drone strike that occurred on August 21, 2015. The duo had made recruitment videos for the ISIS scumbags.
- 2016 Thursday: NASA launched its OSIRIS-REX space probe today, destined to rendezvous with the asteroid 101955 Bennu in 2018. It would arrive on scene on December 03, 2018. Once there, it was to collect mineral samples from the surface and if all goes well will return to Earth orbit and eventual landing in Utah at a military facility sometime in 2023.
- 2017 Friday: Hurricane Irma regained Category 5 status, battering Cuba with 160-mph wind, and taking aim on the Miami area; the death toll across the Caribbean climbed past 20 after the storm ravaged islands including St. Martin, St. Barts, St. Thomas, Barbuda, and Anguilla. In one of the country’s largest evacuations, officials in Florida told more than 5 million people to leave their homes ahead of the hurricane; parts of interstates 75 and 95 northbound were bumper-to-bumper.
- 2018 Saturday: In Egypt, a high court hands down 700 sentences, including 75 death sentences, for a violent Islamist protest put on by the Muslim Brotherhood at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square on August 14, 2013. As always, the protesters claim it was a ‘peaceful sit-in’ but they began running amok and General Abdel Fattah al-Sissi responded with troops and killed loads of violent rioters for which, he deserves commendation. Al-Sissi now is president of Egypt and the country is in peace.
- 2019 Sunday: Why Marvel would be promoting homosexuality is beyond us but the mayor of Rio De Janeiro banned a comic book in which two men were swapping spit. However, the Brazilian Supreme Court overturned the mayor’s ban. Sad. Elsewhere, tensions increase between India and Pakistan as Prime Minister Modi continues pushing his ‘make Hinduism great again’ agenda, what they call Hinduvta.
- 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump criticized the top Pentagon brass today when he said that they ‘engage in useless wars in order to boost defense contractors profits.’ This is true and has been true since President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republican, warned the country about the ‘military-industrial complex,’ meaning there is loads of money for everyone involved in procuring and fulfilling defense contracts. Military profiteers are the most shameful, disgusting people because they have no problem sending your loved ones to wage wars we never seem to win anymore. Hence, money continues flowing around the clock. God bless you, President Trump. Speaking of President Trump, he is visiting Florida and North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe Biden” is conducting a remote town hall somewhere. Speaking of both Trump and Biden, a poll conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University says that ‘people expect that Trump will crush Biden in their debates by a 47-to-41 percent margin.’ Friends, it is bigger than that, people just don’t want to answer these polls.
- 2020 Tuesday A: Fascinatingly, Democrats and anti-Trumpers are beginning to recoil from Jeffrey Goldberg’s article in the once-staid magazine, The Atlantic, a story the magazine published on September 03, 2020. Mr. Goldberg- quoting the usual suspects- anonymous sources- claimed he was told (and to her discredit, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Channel backed him up) that in 2018 on a visit to France to visit U.S. World War I military cemeteries, President Trump supposedly called the fallen ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ for having served and worse, for having died. Both Goldberg and his magazine got about three solid days of Trump-bashing but now, people are pulling back from it because NO has the balls to step forward (where are you, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, you pansy) and anyone who once supported the claims are quickly withdrawing from the claims in fear of being made liars- which they are. President Trump may have slandered former Sen. John McCain but McCain was an anti-Trumper from the start and the man who originally helped Hillary come up with the “Trump-Russia Collusion” bogus theory. We think McCain was a POS, too and believe that Mr. Goldberg, like most liberal ‘news media’ (aka Fake News) is full of crap, stinking, festering crap and U.S. military personnel know it.
- 2020 Tuesday B: We learn that over the Labor Day weekend in Chicago, 53 people were shot, 10 killed, including an 8-year-old girl. Elsewhere, in New York City, at least 10 people were shot, including a six-year-old child who had both legs shattered when an errant drive-by fusillade of lead ripped through them. Elected Democrats hem and haw over the numbers of deaths via gun violence and do everything possible to blame President Donald J. Trump for the crimes in THEIR locales. Portland, Oregon, saw more violence over the Labor Day weekend and people are begging for it to stop yet Democratic leaders lack the balls to do something about it. Time to bring in ex-Black Water Mercs and have them take out the scumbags, do what the Columbian people did when they finally could stand drug lord Pablo Escobar’s crimes any longer. Fight fire with worse fire.
- 2020 Tuesday C: Rochester, N.Y., Police Chief La’Ron Singletary announces that he and his entire command structure are resigning over events surrounding the recent death of black PCP arrestee Daniel Prude who died in custody following a spit hood placed over his head approximately one week before his death. Elsewhere, another black police chief- this one in Dallas- puts in her resignation papers. Reneé Hall handed in her walking papers, effective November 2020. Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., the Pelosi Mob continues fighting the targeted COVID-19 bill put forth by the Republicans. Don’t worry, Madam Speaker, WE KNOW who is responsible for NO money going to those who need it and we won’t forget.
- 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 27,392,203 confirmed cases, UP by 191,260 cases, 897,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,873 deaths, and 18,337,409 confirmed recoveries, UP by 217,307 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,411,392 confirmed cases, UP by 16,259 new cases, 192,451 confirmed deaths, UP by 405 new deaths, and 3,450,818 confirmed recoveries, UP by 20,996 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- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
- 2020 Tuesday E: 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: 742,833 confirmed cases, 13,764 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 9,957 confirmed cases, 86 confirmed deaths, and 3,028 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 80,623 confirmed cases, 2,044 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: 444,751 confirmed number of cases, 32,971 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries. The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo now is trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.
- 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,500.89, DOWN 632.42 points (-2.25%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,847.69, DOWN 465.44 points (-4.11%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,331.84, DOWN 95.12 points (-2.78%). The price of GOLD is $1,939.10 per troy oz., -4.10 (-0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.191 (-0.71%). The price of PLATINUM is $902.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.91%) while the price of COPPER is $3.01 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.51%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,273.50 per troy oz., -10.50 (-0.4%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $36.61 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.41%). Today, COFFEE is $131.65 per metric ton, -1.10 (-0.83). As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.84 communist Chinese yuan. By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros. Communist China manipulates its currency.
- 2020 Tuesday G: Let’s see what no-good actions the Chi-Coms and the Democrats have done today. Stick around and find out as communist China-Democratic Party Collusion is the REAL COLLUSION- where do you think funding for America’s left-wing mob violence is emanating? Not from the Democrats, they don’t have the money their Beijing bosses do…

Tuesday, September 08, 2020:
[i] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013. These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.
[ii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012. Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013. At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends. Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.
[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.
[iv] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us. We thank you.
[v] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land. At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.
