- 2016 Wednesday: In the Caribbean Sea, Hurricane Matthew- the first Cat 5 storm since Hurricane Felix in 2007- begins to build, a storm that would slam into Haiti- killing at least 1,000 people, injuring numerous others, and destroying loads of hovels and then hammer the southeastern United States.

- 2020 Monday: Democrats resurrected “Trump and his taxes” from 2016, claiming in a New York Times article yesterday that in 2016 and again in 2017, Donald Trump paid a mere $750 in federal income taxes. We seem to recall back in 2012 when then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, leveled the charge against GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney that he ‘had not paid taxes in a decade.’ He said this on the floor of the Senate which protected him from any sort of legal repercussion. This is what Democrats do. Meanwhile, Guy Benson said on Fox News Channel today that “Pro-China Joe” Biden placed ‘lids’ on campaign events or interactions with the media 40-percent of all September. Normally, Biden’s day ends around 9:00 a.m. East Coast time if not earlier. Meanwhile, in Chicago over the weekend, at least 50 people were shot and about 9 killed. Elsewhere, over the course of the weekend in Louisville, Kentucky, in response to the grand jury’s report on the shooting death of Breonna Tayler, dozens and dozens underwent arrest for violent mob activities. Lock ‘em up!
- 2020 Monday A: Saudi Arabia- hosting the G20 summit in November has decided to host it virtually thanks to the ongoing Chinese lab-engineered pandemic. This year, the G20 has decided to set aside the collection of debt owed by the world’s developing countries due to the coronavirus. Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms are angry once again, this time reneging on their pledge NOT to militarize the South China Sea because the United States continue pointing out that the communist Chinese are the number one destroyers of the global environment. Beijing instead claims that the U.S. is the biggest threat to peace in the region as well as across the globe. Friends, the Chi-Coms released the Chinese Virus- the dreaded Chi-Vi- on purpose.

Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 90,002 confirmed cases, 2,197 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other state: Maine- currently, they have 5,300 confirmed cases, 140 confirmed deaths, and 4,599 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Janet Mills! Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 233,265 confirmed cases, 1,507 confirmed deaths, and 165,191 confirmed recoveries. Let us look another nation, one where hydroxychloroquine is used in the treatment/prevention of malaria: Central African Republic: they have 4,806 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 62 confirmed deaths and 1,840 confirmed recoveries. Perhaps Plaquenil should be among the medications used to treat the Pelosi Pox?
- 2020 Monday C: Exciting day for the Stock Market: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,584.06, UP 410.10 points (+1.51%). Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ: 11,117.52, UP 203.96 points (+1.87%). Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,351.60, UP 53.14 points (+1.61%).
