The contested election had gone for more than a month as the Democrats sought to steal the election from the GOP.

- 2015 Saturday: In Greece, the country is under threat of mass investigation as loads of ‘migrants’- mostly young men of military age- from North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia are stuck on site as Europe temporarily refuses to accept them. We say, “THROW THEM BACK!”
- 2016 Monday: It’s official: President-elect Donald J. Trump picks Exxon-Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson to become his secretary of state. This man would prove to be a major disappointment. Next, Mr. Trump picks Goldman-Sachs Gary Cohn to be his economic adviser. Meanwhile, Senate Republicans fall prey to the Democrat BS and order an investigation into Russian election interference.
- 2017 Tuesday: Liberals are celebrating today as Democrat Doug Jones wins the vacated seat of Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions who became U.S. Attorney-General.

Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., another humongous March for Trump Bus Tour is underway with hundreds of thousands of American patriots in attendance. “Stop the steal” is the mantra of the day. Elsewhere, the Food and Drug Administration greenlights the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use. The CDC is monitoring patients and vaccine reports after reports of Bell’s palsy befalling some recipients. Finally, a car plowed through a group of protesters in Manhattan, New York.
- 2020 Saturday A: After SCOTUS demonstrated its true colors yesterday, President Donald J. Trump vows he will carry on his fight for free and fair elections. The Arizona GOP requests a Supreme Court appeal key deadlines in its fight against voter fraud while in Texas, the GOP says SCOTUS’ refusal to hear case sets an extremely dangerous precedent. Meanwhile, in a sign of the times with a possible change in presidential administrations, a boat bearing about a dozen illegal aliens came ashore in San Diego, California, and once on shore took off running like bats out of hell. Find them, ICE, and deport them. Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump attends his third Army-Navy football game.
- 2020 Saturday B: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 71,541,897 confirmed cases, +1,516,362, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +12,177, and 45,680,439 confirmed recoveries, +616,249. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 16,194,260 confirmed cases, UP 280,850 from yesterday’s reporting, 301,045 confirmed deaths, UP 5,196, and 7,421,827 confirmed recoveries, UP 145,269.
- 2020 Saturday C: 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: 1,528,177 confirmed cases, 20,854 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,315 confirmed cases, 269 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 204,484 confirmed cases, 3,097 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other locale: District of Columbia. Currently, they have 24,357 confirmed cases, 709 confirmed deaths, and 17,091 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Mayor Bowser. Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 355,786 confirmed cases, 2,983 confirmed deaths, and 335,243 confirmed recoveries. In other Chi-Vi news, we learn that Charlie Pride, famed Country & Western singer, has died at age 86 from a Wuhan Virus infection. Thank you communist China, thank you.
- 2020 Saturday D: The criminal government in Tehran, Iran, executed a journalist today, Rouhollah Zam, condemned of a BS crime known as ‘corruption on earth,’ a charge they use when they haven’t a real crime with which to condemn their victims, especially if they say things unflattering to their s-hole government. He was hung which means they brought out the construction crane, put the noose around his neck, and then hoisted him up, barbaric savages that they are. Elsewhere, Microsoft online news shares a story from the Wrap (some BS media site) that does what leftwing media does best and that is slandering their targets. The story claims that Newsmax host Greg Kelly repeatedly ‘shrieks it’s not over’ regarding President Donald J. Trump’s chances at pulling victory from the jaws of defeat. They do the same thing to Trump, trying to mischaracterize their targets words by making them sound unhinged or crazy like them. We watch Greg Kelly and he NEVER has shrieked anything; he merely says it and the left tarnishes him for having done so. PAY NO ATTENTION TO LEFT-WING NEWS SOURCES.
- 2020 Saturday E: In other Chi-Com news, we learn that Hong Kong has denied bail to imprisoned media mogul and Hong Kong freedom activist Jimmy Lai whom the MSS arrested earlier in the year for supposed ‘subversive crimes’ under the new National Security Law that allows the thugs in Beijing to crack down and imprison people defending democracy in the former British Crown Colony. Let him out! Meanwhile, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told Judge Janine on her show tonight that Chi-Com pawn Congressman Eric “Farther in Chief” Swalwell is facing an ethics investigation for having been involved with a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang or Fang-Fang as she is known. We also learned earlier this week that the congressman’s father and brother just broke off social media ties with the honeypot spy this flipping week. Swalwell, you need to go to prison.
- 2020 Saturday F: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3516 with a jackpot of $14 million up for the grabbing: 01, 13, 24, 26, 39, and Mega 17. Out of 91,240 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person with five numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $32,740. Next, here are the results of the Powerball Draw #802 with a massive jackpot up for grabs: 17, 54, 56, 63, 69, and Powerball 20. Out of 83,797 winning tickets, the highest winner were two people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $23,603.
- 2020 Saturday G: President Donald J. Trump attended his third Army-Navy Game (West Point won 15-0), conducted the coin toss to get the game going, and then received a thunderous applause and chants of “USA! USA! USA!” from the midshipmen and military cadets- as well as other military personnel on hand. It was amazing and it demonstrated that even after attempts by the Democrats to slash his ties to the military, the U.S. military junior officers and personnel love the 45th president and will continue loving him as he loves them. In other positive stories, double amputee USMC veteran Zachary Briseno- a man who lost both legs to an Iranian-made roadside bomb in Iraq- became the second double amputee to become a police officer in the United States as he joined the Ft. Worth, Texas, police department. Congratulations, Officer Briseno!
