Elsewhere, Russian President Vladimir Putin suggests to President Barack Obama that ‘the U.S. and Russia could coordinate on airstrikes designed to wipe the ISIS thugs off the map.’ Seems like the Obama administration had no problem working with the Russkies…speaking of military matters, President Obama vetoes a $612 billion defense spending bill. Go figure.
- 2016 Saturday: As Iraqi forces draw closer to the city of Mosul, held by the ISIS thugs, fighting increases along the roads leading to the city as the jihadist thugs set off IEDs, ambushes, and use human shields to cover their tracks during attacks. Still, the Iraqi military is doing one hell of a job. Elsewhere, Jessica Drake becomes the 11th woman to accuse of GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump of sexual improprieties. Where is she NOW? Once the election is over and Trump wins, all his accusers evaporate like the crap they are.

Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms in an act of virtue signaling claim they are going to close tens of thousands of factories to combat air pollution. (They are just going to rely on their Uighur concentration camps instead).
- 2018 Monday: National Security Adviser John Bolton meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin after the president suggests the U.S. could withdraw from the arms limitations treaty in which the two nations are engaged. President Trump is concerned the Russians are reneging on their promises and worse, the Chi-Coms are not a part of the treaty so they are going all out on building their military at a fever pitch. Meanwhile, the Trump administration plans to expand religious exemptions to ‘birth control coverage’ which in leftist speak means ABORTION. Why should any religious organization be forced by governmental edict to provide abortions or abortifacients to employees? It’s insane.

- 2020 Thursday A: Tonight is the final debate between candidates Donald J. Trump and “Pro-China Joe” Biden. Ahead of the debate, the president releases excerpts from an interview he did with Leslie Stahl of “60 Minutes” fame, leading her network to go ballistic. He points out that the difference between his interview with the decrepit, aging newswoman and the one his opponent did with another interviewer was like night and day. Why these people have so much hate toward the current president is beyond many people’s comprehension. Speaking of President Trump, Rasmussen says the commanding lead of 12 points or more that “Pro-China Joe” Biden held as little as two weeks ago is now down to three points. Not looking good for the Democrats.
- 2020 Thursday B: Facebook’s little Mark Zuckerberg and his clone Jack Dorsey at Twitter (aka ‘Shitter’) receive subpoenas to appear before the Senate and to answer questions as to why they are such left-wing POS who believe they can control the flow of information. They have allowed every hateful piece of disinformation on President Donald J. Trump to appear uncensored but anyone talking about “Pro-China Joe” Biden or his crackhead son, Hunter, you get ‘disappeared.’ This BS must stop.

- 2020 Thursday F: Here’s the Thursday Night Football Game: (1) New York Giants, 21 7 (1-6) @ Philadelphia Eagles, 22 10 (2-4-1) at the Half.
- 2020 Thursday G: The final presidential debate is in the books and it was a good one. We must say to Kristen Welker- the moderator- that she did a stellar job and that that POS Chris Wallace could learn much from her. Both men held their own, loads of information was delivered, and it is up to everyone to determine whom they believe to be more truthful and whom they believe to be the winner. We will find out on November 3.
- 2020 Thursday H: We always encourage everyone to stick around and find out with us whatever it is the Beijing bullies and their Democratic Party flunkies are up to today- you know they are doing something to steal the election…
