Governor Carter won 50.1% of the popular vote to 48.0% for the president. (Nelson Rockefeller was Ford’s vice president but was not on the 1976 ticket.

Meanwhile, Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh was slain in Amsterdam after receiving death threats over his movie, “Submission,” which criticized the treatment of women under the control of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam. The murderous scum whacked the poor bastard.
- 2007 Friday: President George W. Bush’s nomination to become his next attorney-general, Judge Michael Mukasey, draw him to deliver an ultimatum to the obstinate Democrats who want the judge to nix waterboarding of terrorist suspects. Following the so-called “Lion of the Senate” Democratic Senator Teddy Kennedy saying he ‘won’t vote to confirm the nominee,’ the president says the nation will go without an AG. Elsewhere, Enola Gay pilot Paul Tibbetts, the man who piloted the plane that dropped the nuke on Hiroshima, dies at age 92.
- 2009 Monday: After canceling a runoff election in Afghanistan, election officials declare Hamid Karzai to be the winner. In the U.S., the CBO announces that ‘few Americans if any will use the public option’ Democrats want to attach to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Eleven years later, they would be promoting ‘Medicare for All.’ Note- just because you have healthcare does not mean it’s any good or that you can access it when you need it. Keep that in mind).
- 2010 Tuesday: In the Mid-Term Elections of 2010, the voters overwhelming elect Republicans who win the largest number of seats in one election since 1894 and take the House of Representatives from the Democrats. This happens all because of Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrats forcing Obamacare down the throats of the American People. The GOP added six new senators to the U.S. Senate and won 63 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives plus six new governorships. All because of Obamacare and the dirty tricks the Dems used to slip it through. Ten years later, the Dems would be crying about the GOP adding another associate justice to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In economic news, the country added 158,000 workers last month, lower than projected due to the onerous costs of Obamacare.
- 2013 Saturday: In Wisconsin, two planes carrying nine skydivers collide in midair; the skydivers used their parachutes to steer themselves clear of the debris, and the two pilots survived with minor injuries.
- 2014 Sunday: According to the best source for information on the planet, Brainy History, the U.N. issues a report concluding that immediate global actions are needed to prevent runaway impacts of climate change; the report claims failure to act now will result in extensive future damage, which will be prohibitively expensive to control. Meanwhile, in Lahore, Pakistan, the ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again with a suicide bombing killing 60 and wounding another 110. What the hell is wrong with these crazy people?
- 2015 Monday: In the GOP presidential primary race, Dr. Ben Carson, with 29-percent of the NBC polling of GOP voters going to him surges past Donald J. Trump who has 23-percent of registered voters choosing him. Senator Marco Rubio came in third with 10-percent of GOP voters choosing him with “Low Energy” Jeb Bush earning a paltry eight percent. Meanwhile, TransCanada asks the U.S. government to suspend the review of the permit application for the Keystone XL Pipeline fearing the Obama administration is going to trash it anyway.
- 2016 Wednesday: President Barack Obama blasted his FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey for reopening the investigation into the missing emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton one week before the Election on November 8. It through mayhem into the hotly contested race and the lead Hillary was enjoying over her opponent, Donald J. Trump, had declined to within the margin of error. Many people will forever be curious as to WHY Comey did what he did. Meanwhile, a woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her 20 years ago when she was just 13 canceled a news conference where she was going to share the details. The event supposedly occurred at a party hosted by Jeffrey Epstein.
- 2017 Thursday: ISIS comes out and claims credit for the recent truck attack in New York City in which, a jihadist POS drove a truck through a crowd of people out along the Hudson River on Halloween. No straightforward evidence exists connecting the thug with the terrorist group but he probably consigned himself to ISIS online before he committed the heinous crime. Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney-General Jeff Sessions demands the tech companies hand over the ‘keys’ to encrypted cellphones so they can gather evidence against terrorists. Of course Big Tech resists. Break them up, end their monopolies already. Elsewhere, Pope Francis says the world is ‘headed forcibly into war.’ Finally, President Donald J. Trump nominates Jerome Powell to be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve.
- 2018 Friday: The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said drug overdose deaths in 2017 had hit the highest level ever recorded in the United States, with most of the increase due to record number of opioid-related deaths. Meanwhile, signs are rife that cholera is threatening a comeback around the world.
- 2019 Saturday: The Keystone XL Pipeline began leaking yesterday and by today when repair personnel rushed to deal with it, an astonishing 383,000 gallons of petroleum had already escaped into the environment causing environmentalists to go berserk. Meanwhile teachers in Chicago announce they will return to the classrooms after a walkout of 11-plus days.
- 2020 Monday: President Trump is crisscrossing America today, speaking before crowds that are simply mind-blowing. His supporters are ecstatic seeing him and he never fails to disappoint. The rallies with 35-45-50-or more thousand people have the feel of an old-time religious tent revival. Yet, Democrats continue claiming they are going to win. Elsewhere, U.S. Marshalls rescue 27 missing children in Virginia during Operation Find Our Children. God bless them, you go! Meanwhile, Project Veritas discovers a plot to steal the election in the great state of Texas. Around the nation, many locales are preparing for Election Day and post-Election Day violence and around the White House, the Feds erect a non-scalable fence. (As soon as law enforcement sees someone raise their arm to throw a Molotov cocktail, a bullet through the skull would send the rest of the Marxist scum scurrying like the cockroaches they are. The number one duty of all elected politicians is to protect life, liberty, and property. In the 1950s, 1960s, even the 1970s, violent rioters would be shot in the act of committing arson, looting, or murder. Remember that). Regarding protecting the people, gun sales in Michigan are at an all-time high in advance of the election because people are going to defend themselves against BLM and Antifa trash.
- 2020 Monday A: Dr. Scott Atlas apologizes for a recent interview with RT, aka Russian Times. Why talk to the Russkies, good doctor? Speaking of medical professionals, President Donald J. Trump alludes to the fact that after a re-election victory, Dr. Tony Fauci’s job may be on the chopping block. Good, should have happened long ago. Once federal medical personnel engage in politics, fire them. Moving on, according to Dick Morris, if voters turn out on Election Day, the president is heading to a blowout victory as are the Republicans around the country. Also speaking of Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praises the policies of President Trump for bringing peace to the Middle East and for keeping the Iranians in check.
- 2020 Monday B: Meanwhile, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- in the form of ISIS carry out a shooting attack on Kabul University that kills 19 and injures another 26. Thank you, ‘religion of peace.’ Elsewhere, the new Chi-Coms’ Five-Year Plan calls for war preparations. This is WHY God gave the United States the neutron bomb. Moving on, NSA leaker Edward Snowden applies for a Russian passport.
- 2020 Monday C: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 46,849,292 confirmed cases, +462,389, 1,202,404, confirmed deaths, +5,260, and 31,182,478 confirmed recoveries, +237,872.

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: 940,770 confirmed cases, 17,677 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,287 confirmed cases, 219 confirmed deaths, and 11,824 confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 113,329 confirmed cases, 2,468 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other state: New York, Home of Dumb and Dumber- Cuomo and Di Blasio- currently, they have 514,482 confirmed cases, 33,174 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Andrew “The Murderer” Cuomo for NOT reporting recoveries; how about sharing the truth? Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 315,636 confirmed cases, 2,580 confirmed deaths, and 303,405 confirmed recoveries. Let us look at another nation: Iran: they have 574,896 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 32,953 confirmed deaths and 459,250 confirmed recoveries. For a lark, let’s look at the country where the pandemic began in a biowarfare lab in Wuhan, communist China: LAST WEEK’S NUMBERS- 85,810 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 80,911 confirmed recoveries. THIS WEEK’S NUMBERS- 86,021 confirmed cases, 4,634 [SAME!] confirmed deaths, and 81,024 confirmed recoveries. Our sources in Hong Kong tell us the REAL numbers on the mainland are between 300-450 times that number: low end- 27,924,025 confirmed cases, 1,870,291 confirmed deaths, and 29,823,760 confirmed recoveries. Remember- that’s the low end.

Price of PALLADIUM: $2,2220.40 per troy oz., +3.20 (+0.14%). Here is the price of COPPER: $3.09 per #, +0.0115 (+0.37%). Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $37.09, +0.28 (+0.76%). Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.69 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros. Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.78 Afghan afghani. FOLKS, STOCKS ARE UP, OIL’S UP, PRECIOUS METALS ARE UP- GOP IS GOING TO CRUSH THE DEMOCRATS TOMORROW…
- 2020 Monday E: Tonight’s Monday Night Football game: (14) Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 25 (6-2) @ New York Giants, 23 (1-7) 5:15 P.M. You know, don’t count them Giants out! They almost did it…
- 2020 Monday F: The day before Election Day, everyone knows the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party are doing everything imaginable to steal this election. IF Democrats win, we will become a tribute nation of the Chi-Coms but if the GOP wins, the communist thugs are going to pay a humongous price for their criminal actions around the world… stick around and find out with us.
