Elsewhere, the ‘Great One,” (yeah, right) President Barack Hussein Obama, during a visit to Tanzania, brushed aside sharp European criticism, suggesting that ALL nations spy on each other as the French and Germans expressed outrage over allegations of U.S. eavesdropping on European Union diplomats. It has become clear that President Obama and his administration spied on ALMOST EVERYONE around the world via the NSA.
- 2014 Tuesday: Japan updates its constitution so that its self-defense forces can assist in the defense of allied nations coming under attack by foreign enemies. However, the change has nothing to do with sending military assets on foreign military adventurism. Elsewhere, David Greenglass, the star witness in the trial of his sister Ethel Rosenberg and her husband, Julius, died in New York City at age 92.

- 2015 Wednesday: Debt-rating giant, Moody’s, downgrades Greece to a Caa3 rating following the nation skipping out on a $1.6 billion debt bailout repayment to the International Monetary Fund.

- 2016 Friday: In the worst terrorist attack in Bangladesh in years, Islamic terrorists takeover a café in Dhaka, taking numerous hostages and driving others away from the foodservice operation. In the ensuing violence, they murder 20 hostages and two cops which makes it the country’s worst such incidence. Not good. Ah, got to love the so-called “religion of peace.”
- 2017 Saturday: In Sinaloa, Mexico, Mexican law enforcement gets the jump on the drug traffickers killing 19 narcoterrorists in the assault. Meanwhile, thanks to the backing of communist China, Ethiopian hack Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus takes over as the boss of the World Health Organization. Less than three years later, his stunning ineptitude as well as his subservient status to Beijing would cause the COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Flu to sweep the world, killing hundreds of thousands and leaving many lives destroyed. Thank you, People’s Republic of China, thank you.
- 2018 Sunday: Mexican voters- angry over corruption and narco-trafficker violence, elected leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador as president. Meanwhile, Canada began imposing tariffs on $12.6 billion in U.S. goods in retaliation for the Trump administration’s new taxes on steel and aluminum imported to the United States.
- 2019 Monday: In Kabul, Afghanistan, as if to spit in the eye of the U.S.-led peace process, Taliban jihadists launch a major attack which leaves more than 100 dead and injured. Elsewhere, after 30 years of NOT whaling, Japan returns to the high seas to begin hunting whales once again. They claim it’s part of their heritage.
- 2020 Wednesday: Two Republican senators- Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and James Lankford of Oklahoma- have written a bill that will abolish- we repeat, ABOLISH- Columbus Day and will replace it with Juneteenth. While nothing is wrong with making Juneteenth a federal holiday, abolishing Columbus Day to appease a left-wing communist mob is f**king insane. Stop pandering to communists, you pathetic morons. We will remember you and will add you to the infamous list upon which, Mitt Romney, another RINO POS of pandering s**t is a member. Do not negate the nation’s history, either good or bad, or suffer negation yourselves. Meanwhile, NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio announces a $1 billion cut to the NYPD’s budget, even with murders and violent crimes skyrocketing. WTF?
- 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 10,512,383 confirmed cases, 512,331 confirmed deaths, and 5,387,249 confirmed recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 2,732,594 confirmed cases, UP by 52,633 new cases, 130,030 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 840,649 confirmed recoveries, UP by 14,688 new recoveries. 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: 232,657 confirmed cases, 6,090 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 917 confirmed cases, 18 confirmed deaths, and 736 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 33,264 confirmed cases, 1,339 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats.
- 2020 Wednesday B: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,734.97, DOWN 77.91 points (0.30%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,154.63, UP 95.86 points (0.95%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,115.86, UP 15.57 points (0.50%). Meanwhile, in Silicon Valley, various BIG TECH companies urge President Donald J. Trump to rescind his recent executive order with which, he temporarily stops the vast numbers of guest workers entry to the country because in this time of a downturned economy, Americans should have first crack at ALL jobs and not imported illegals. We hope the president will also deport Sundar Pichai and his family, whether born in the USA or not, because he is a scumbag who closed our blogs.
