- 2020 Thursday: A recent poll suggests that 51-percent of ALL Americans support Black Lives Matter- the well-known criminal thug Marxist whereas 44-percent don’t.

Uh, okay. New Jersey election officials announce they found 16,000 mail-in ballots from an election in July that mysteriously turned up but did not- we repeat, did not (so they say) alter the election.

Meanwhile, in South Carolina’s senatorial election, GOP Senator Lindsey Graham and his Democratic Party challenger Jaime Gideon are in a dead heat at 48-percent apiece. We shall see. Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is looking into possible civil and/or criminal charges against officials in cities that abrogated their duties of protecting life, liberty, and property, what all elected leaders are charged to do, defend the U.S. and state constitutions and to enforce all laws, especially those protecting the people.
- 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay. Insane. Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution. Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today. Remember that. Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10. Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns. The Browns won 35-30.
- 2020 Thursday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus- Pelosi Pox: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 29,994,772 confirmed cases, +338,268, 942,989, confirmed deaths, +6,084, and 20,375,450 confirmed recoveries, +229,062.

- 2020 Thursday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 773,318 confirmed cases, 14,716 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

- 2020 Thursday E: We had a FAIRLY LARGE SELL-OFF today. Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,901.98, DOWN 130.40 points (-0.47%). Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ: 10,910.28, DOWN 140.19 points (-1.27%). Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,357.01, DOWN 28.48 points (-0.84%).

Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.76 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros. Conversely, one dollar U.S. = 29.12 Taiwanese dollars.
- 2020 Thursday F: We encourage everyone top remain alert for whatever collusion the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party hacks cause today; stick around and find out…

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 17, 2020
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Thursday, September 17, 2020:
[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011. Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog. We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too. We thank you.
[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans. Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one. The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change. We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are. Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!
