- 2020 Wednesday A: A recent poll says that three-quarters of American Jews plan on voting for former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris. Sounds like BS to us. Early voting numbers are coming in- compared to 5.9 million in 2016, this time around there are 35.9-million early votes at the same point in time. Wow. The White House says the goal in the next 48 hours is to arrive at a fiscal stimulus deal for the American people. Finally, Gen.

Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 307,335 confirmed cases, 2,291 confirmed deaths, and 285,411 confirmed recoveries.
- 2020 Wednesday C: 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: 888,594 confirmed cases, 17,130 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 14,302 confirmed cases, 203 confirmed deaths, and 11,188 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 104,000 confirmed cases, 2,380 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let’s take a look at one more state, Oregon: 40,443 confirmed number of cases, 638 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Kate Brown for concealing the number of recoveries- we hope your recall is successful.
- 2020 Wednesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes, ALL DOWN because of the news that continues to tie “Pro-China Joe” Biden to the corrupt Ukrainian gas company Burisma and to Chi-Com donors through his crackhead son, Hunter: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,210.82, DOWN 97.97 points (-0.35%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,484.69, DOWN 31.80 points (-0.28%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,435.56, DOWN 7.56 points (-0.22%).

- 2020 Wednesday E: Tonight is Game Two of the 2020 World Series: Tampa Bay Rays vs. Los Angeles Dodgers. With a 6-4 victory by the Rays, the series is tied 1-1. Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto ##3501 draw with a jackpot of $19 million: 09, 10, 16, 31, 46, and Mega 27. Two people were fortunate to have FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $16,290 apiece. Next, here are the numbers for tonight’s Powerball #787 drawing with a jackpot of $72 million- 01, 03, 13, 44, 56, and Power 26. The highest winners were two people who had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $51,768. We hope you’re one of the lucky ones.
- 2020 Wednesday F: We encourage everyone to stick around to find out what those commie rascals in Beijing and their allies in the Democratic Party are up to today? More Chi-Vi cases? You bet. More devious schemes ahead of the election? Ditto! Let’s find out together.
