- 2017 Saturday: A car plowed into a crowd of violent Antifa protesters who were counter-protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing Heather Heyer, 32, and hurting more than a dozen others. The Ohio man accused in the attack, James Alex Fields, 21, would face a state murder charge and federal hate crimes charges, which are bullshit. President Donald Trump condemned what he called “this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.” Democrats and some Republicans called on Trump to specifically denounce white supremacy. Fake news ginned up the coverage to make the President appear a bigot, which is bullshit. Meanwhile, during the protest, two Virginia state police officers died in a helicopter crash while monitoring the violent Antifa-caused protests below them. Everyone blames white nationalism and President Trump, but the Democrats and fake news scum vilify those they deem culpable while giving a pass to the real criminals involved here, Antifa and Governor Terry McAuliffe who told the police officers to stand down so the Antifa thugs could beat on their opponents unmolested.

Meanwhile, in Hong Kong, the government announces a closure of the former British colony’s airports as pro-democracy protesters flood them. People want freedom and the Chi-Coms on the mainland are doing everything possible to quash them.
- 2020 Wednesday: Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris make their first appearance as a ticket in Wilmington, Delaware, today. The former vice president was able to follow the teleprompter most of the way but there were a few times when he began to falter. Perhaps he requires a shock collar around his neck so every time his eyes begin going fuzzy and his words fall by the wayside, Dr. Jill can give him a quick ZAP to pull him back on course. Just saying. Note: the Biden-Harris campaign raised $10.8 million within four hours of announcing that “Groping Joe” Biden had chosen the unpopular California senator to be his vice president.
- 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,423,897 confirmed cases, UP by 299,460 cases, 744,629 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,364 deaths, and 12,631,548 confirmed recoveries, UP by 251,138 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,255,928 confirmed cases, UP by 55,552 new cases, 167,361 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,474 new deaths, and 2,648,373 confirmed recoveries, UP by 109,673 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they will not- corrupt SOBs).
- 2020 Wednesday B: 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: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,756 confirmed cases, thirty-four confirmed deaths, and 1,627 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 64,151 confirmed cases, 1,716 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let us take a look at one more state, Minnesota: 62,303 confirmed number of cases, 1,707 confirmed number of deaths, but unlike other liberal hellholes around the country there are a number of recoveries: 55,855. Thank you, Governor Tim Walz for your honesty. Congrats!
- 2020 Wednesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,976.84, UP 289.83 points (1.05%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,012.24, UP 229.42 points (2.13%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,380.35, UP 46.66 points (1.40%). The price of GOLD is $1,926.20 per troy oz., -22.80 (-1.17%) while the price of SILVER is $25.60 per troy ounce, -0.374 (-1.44%). The price of PLATINUM is $944.10 per troy oz, -15.10 (-1.57%) while the price of COPPER is $2.88 per pound, -0.009 (-0.31%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.56 per barrel, -0.11 (-0.26%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.94 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
- 2021 Thursday: Friends, I am the Voice of Freedom broadcasting to you from the hellhole of Los Angeles, California, a bastion of our beloved governor, Gavin “Nazi” Newsom and a place beset by unnecessary lockdowns, restrictions, illegal aliens running amok, and Chi-Com intelligence agents crumbling before our very eyes. Time to overthrow the existing order and it is going to happen on September 14, 2021, when we eject our corrupt debutante imbecilic governor out on his butt. Stick around for the latest anti-Chi-Com news, politics, Chi-Vi updates, and news about the border crisis…
