He raped her and fathered seven children with her, three girls and four boys. By the time the authorities discovered what this monstrous scumbag had done, he was age 74. The trial was swift and he received a life sentence. We’re sorry, the Austrian government should have shot this POS.
- 2009 Monday: A 23-month-old Mexico City toddler died at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, becoming the first swine-flu death on U.S. soil. Meanwhile, a strong earthquake hammered Mexico, rattling nerves among residents already tense from a swine flu outbreak. Elsewhere, former WBA heavyweight champion Greg Page died at home in Louisville, Kentucky, of positional asphyxiation. He was 50 years old. Over the course of his pro-career, he amassed a record of 58 fights, 48 wins (17 Kos), and 1 draw. Finally, one of President Barack Hussein Obama’s Air Force One jets, a Boeing 747, and an F-16 fighter jet panicked New Yorkers as they circled over lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty for what turned out to be a photo op. Many people believe this to have been staged, the president committing a heinous practical joke above a city scarred from the 9-11 Attacks eight years before. What a POS.

- 2016 Wednesday: Unlike other European countries, Austria says “F— this” by limiting asylum claimants into their country and also reserves the right to reject people at their border. Of course, human rights groups go haywire claiming this is an afront to all humanity. Austria, we’re with you, Germany and Angela Merkel are NOT your friends.
- 2017 Thursday: Julius Younger, American virologist who helped create the Salk polio vaccine dies at age 96 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump softens his stance on NAFTA by saying he ‘seeks to renegotiate it.’
- 2018 Friday: North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un meets with his South Korean counterpart, President Moon Jae-in to ‘end the Korean War and to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons.’ Meanwhile, German leader Angela Merkel makes a one-day trip to Washington, D.C., to meet with President Donald J. Trump.
- 2019 Saturday: Our ‘beloved’ Pope Francis, the 266th Roman Catholic pontiff, donates half-a-million bucks to ‘help’ migrants trying to reach the U.S. border via caravan who are stranded in Mexico City. Let them remain there. Meanwhile, a shooter opens fire at a synagogue in Poway, California, managing to slay one and wound three before being taken down himself. God bless the victims.
- 2020 Monday: Thanks to the reopening of some states, the Stock Market has a great day. The DOW Jones Industrial Average closes up 358.51 at 24,133.78; the S&P 500 closes up 41.74 at 2,878.48; and the NASDAQ closes up 95.64 at 8,730.16. Excellent. Meanwhile, the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the one the Chinese claim is ‘not theirs but came out of the United States’ continues causing problems. Global statistics show that currently, we have 3,002,303 confirmed cases what with 208,131 confirmed deaths and 878,813 confirmed recoveries. In the United States, we have 1,005,934 confirmed cases what with 56,329 confirmed deaths but 112,913 confirmed recoveries so things are looking good- most places. California’s confirmed cases rest at 44,792 and at 1,755 confirmed deaths. The Chinese continue lying about their numbers. Elsewhere, people continue to speculate about North Korean thug dictator, Kim Jong Un, who has been absent from world view for the past two weeks. Many speculate he contracted COVID-19 and is near or at death whereas others claim he is on a ‘holiday.’ We shall see. Finally, apparent Democratic Party 2020 presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden remains mum on allegations he sexually abused a staffer back in the 1990s when he was a senator. Say it ain’t so, Joe!
- 2021 Tuesday: Stick around…
