Meanwhile, as Iranian-backed Palestinian violence continues across Israel, the government announces that it will deploy thousands of troops and police officers to quell the uprisings. Violence continues ginning up following Israeli cops shooting a Palestinian punk with a knife who tried to attack officers and then tried to flee. This event occurred at the Damascus Gate in East Jerusalem, a place the Palestinians claim as theirs. Nope. Belongs to Israel.
- 2016 Friday: As candidate Donald J. Trump continues rebuffing his numerous female accusers, Democratic Party nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton quietly begins downgrading her campaign events schedule due to fatigue and poor health; besides, she thinks she has it in the bag.

Meanwhile, in the peaceful country of Somalia (yeah, right), a truck bombing in the nation’s capital killed more than 500 people in one of the deadliest attacks in years; officials blamed the attack on the Islamist extremist group al-Shabab and said it was meant to target Mogadishu’s international airport, but the bomb detonated in a crowded street after soldiers opened fire. One must love to the so-called “religion of peace,” of which, Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is a member.
- 2018 Sunday: Sears and Roebuck announces it has filed for bankruptcy. Meanwhile, following Hurricane Michael’s blitz on Florida, at least 30-35 people are missing and more than 250,000 customers are without power. Finally, Lindsey Buckingham, kicked off the latest Fleetwood Mac[v] tour, announces he is going to sue his ex-band mates.
- 2019 Monday: After dealing with initial Kurdish resistance, Turkish troops steamroll across the frontier into Syria thereby to establish a buffer zone between their country and the Syrian civil war. Various U.S. military and elected officials blast President Trump for having pulled U.S. troops back, prophesying that ‘all hell is going to break loose and that the United States has abandoned its allies.’ None of this proves to be true. Elsewhere, in the impeachment probe, a blubbering former ambassador to the Ukraine- Marie Yovanovitch- says Fiona Hill, another Obama holdover and Russian expert, said the president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani who is investigating wrongdoing by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine- is a ‘hand grenade.’ Dems did their best to paint Giuliani as some sort of malignant entity messing up years of U.S. diplomacy in the region but like the rest of their BS, there is nothing to see here. Wah, wah, wah!
- 2020 Wednesday: Much to the frustration of President Donald J. Trump, Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr says the unmasking probe found NO evidence of wrongdoing in the Obama White House. Later, when asked by Newsmax’ Greg Kelly as to what the future of AG Barr would be in a second term, the president responds ‘NO comment’ but expresses his displeasure. Moving on, Russia rules out any nuke deal until AFTER the 2020 U.S. elections. Elsewhere, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pushes Saudi Arabia to normalize relations with Israel. Speaking of Secretary Pompeo, he says the U.S. is defending 12 Hong Kongese detained by the Chi-Coms.
- 2020 Wednesday A: A judge in Virginia orders more time for voter registration in that state. Regarding the election, a Pennsylvania county reports 29,000 mail-in ballots sent to the wrong people. Instills loads of confidence in one, doesn’t it? Elsewhere, we learn today that Hunter Biden introduced his father, then the sitting Vice President Joe Biden to Ukrainian energy officials. This would set up a massive self-enrichment scheme for the Biden Family. Meanwhile, Eli Lilly becomes the second pharmaceutical maker to temporarily halt COVID-19 vaccine studies after a test subject develops an unknown illness. Speaking of the Chi-Vi, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer blasting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s failure to negotiate a successful Wuhan Virus relief bill continues gathering steam as millions of Americans now see that she has NO desire to pass any sort of relief for millions of struggling Americans until AFTER the Election. Impeach and remove this horrible woman.
- 2020 Wednesday B: Tomorrow, dueling town hall ‘debates’ will occur as President Donald J. Trump holds one at the exact same time that his challenger, “Pro-China Joe” Biden holds another. Moving on, today is the third day of confirmation hearings for nominee Amy Coney Barrett and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX, exposes the Dems over their claims of ‘GOP court packing’ by pointing out that it’s NOT court packing, it’s the lawful filling of vacancies. He points out that should the Democrats win, they will engage in court packing by adding another 4-7 additional justices, thus making the court forever a left-wing ally in whatever’s to come. Meanwhile, Charlie Cook of the Cook Report says that ‘Pro-China Joe” Biden now has an insuperable lead over President Donald J. Trump of 17-percent and that his challenger now has a 91-percent chance of winning on November 3. Wow! It’s all over! Still, just for the heck of it, we are all going to GO VOTE on Election Day…
- 2020 Wednesday C: THE STATE OF ILLINOIS IS NOT GOING TO FILE CHARGES AGAINST KYLE RITTENHOUSE, they young man who went to Kenosha, Wisconsin, to help his friends defend their homes and businesses. Attacked by a mob of Antifa human filth, he defended himself and killed two of the bums in self-defense. God bless you, Mr. Rittenhouse, God bless the state of Illinois for doing the right thing.
- 2020 Wednesday D: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 38,351,539 confirmed cases, UP by 345,418 cases, 1,089,186 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,311 deaths, and 26,540,006 confirmed recoveries, UP by 185,795 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,954,066 confirmed cases, UP by 10,036 new cases, 219,254 confirmed deaths, UP by 178 new deaths, and 5,063,122 confirmed recoveries, UP by 1,363 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs). Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 298,500 confirmed cases, 2,098 confirmed deaths, and 251,711 confirmed recoveries.
- 2020 Wednesday 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: 865,211 confirmed cases, 16,717 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 13,736 confirmed cases, 183 confirmed deaths, and 10,883 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 99,486 confirmed cases, 2,311 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced 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, Ohio: 173,665 confirmed number of cases, 5,033 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Mike DeWine for concealing the number of recoveries.
- 2020 Wednesday F: Here are today’s Stock Market closes, ALL DOWN because of the news that now ties “Pro-China Joe” Biden to the corrupt Ukrainian gas company Burisma through his crackhead son, Hunter: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,514.00, DOWN 165.81 points (-0.58%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,768.63, DOWN 95.17 points (-0.80%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,488.67, DOWN 23.26 points (-0.66%). The price of GOLD is $1,902.10 per troy oz., -5.20 (-0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $24.27 per troy ounce, -0.125 (-0.51%). The price of PLATINUM is $861.00 per troy oz, -2.40 (-0.28%) while the price of COPPER is $3.05 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.15%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,366.30 per troy oz, +22.00 (+0.94%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.20 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.39%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.71 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.32.
- 2020 Wednesday G: As everyone knows, the day is young, we don’t know yet what the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party have done. Stick around and we will find out together…which is what the New York Post today reported front page, the connection between crackhead Hunter Biden, Burisma, and his daddy, “Pro-China Joe” Biden. Hunter introduced his father to the number three Ukrainian at Burisma and there’s the story, folks, if this were anyone else, he or she would be driven from the race in shame and sent to prison… please see the story at https://nypost.com/2020/10/14/email-reveals-how-hunter-biden-introduced-ukrainian-biz-man-to-dad/
- 2020 Wednesday H: President Donald J. Trump has a MASSIVE RALLY in Des Moines, Iowa, tonight where he broaches the topics of the day, including the growing scandal about “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his dopehead son, Hunter. Tune in to Newsmax for highlights…Meanwhile, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, pulls in a record $28 million for September in his battle to keep his seat. Lindsey has it hands down. Elsewhere, we are told that in early voting, “Democrats are outvoting their GOP competition.” Does this surprise anyone? Honestly? Dems always flood the early voting facilities as like the bogus fake polls that continue showing “Pro-China Joe” Biden up anywhere from 17 to 35 points, meant to depress the opposition. Folks, NOTHING is going to depress the GOPPERS, you are going to see turnout the likes of which, you have never seen on Election Day. The victory is going to dwarf any seen by Ronald Reagan or Richard M. Nixon and we hear from sources around the country that IF the Democrats find 500 ballots in the trunk of a car with Mexico license plates, the GOP will find 750 to 1,000 in a box from a polling station. Dems, we are going to fight fire with fire. Watch and see!
- 2020 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto drawing #3499 with a prize of $18 million: 04, 13, 25, 34, 46, and Mega 25.
