- 2015 Tuesday: After candidate Donald Trump announced the previous day his intention to ban entry to all Muslims seeking to enter the United States, the liberals backed by their Fake News Media allies go ballistic, screaming how ‘horrible it all is.’ Candidate Trump’s GOP foes as well as the Obama White House blast him for being a bigot and the like.
- 2016 Thursday: President-elect Donald J. Trump announces his pick for secretary of Labor- Andrew Puzder, of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. fame. Meanwhile, angry Democrats announce they are going to try to block his pick to head the EPA- Oklahoma Attorney-General Scott Pruitt, claiming him to be an enemy of the environment.

He thanks loads of people sans any mention of the reprobate political Dr. Tony Fauci. Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they vow retaliation for the increasing sanctions being placed upon them just as we learn that California Democratic Congressman Eric Swalwell has DEEP TIES to Beijing in general and to the Ministry of State Security in particular. It seems the man known as the ‘farter-in-chief’ for ripping one live on air while talking to Anderson Cooper had personal ‘close ties’ to a female MSS agent, Christine Fang who placed interns into the congressman’s office.

- 2020 Tuesday B: U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia says that the rapid deployment of the vaccine for the Chi-Vi should drive unemployment below five percent given leftwing loony tunes governors like Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, and other BLUE STATE dictators reopen their states instead of crushing their people. We say that as long as California Governor Gavin Newsom continues destroying average working Californians that the world boycotts ALL wines made by his Plumpjack Winery in Napa Valley. This man is literally destroying the lives of the people who elected him, and he must face repercussions for his blatant criminality.
- 2020 Tuesday C: The U.S. Army fires or suspends 14 upper military officers in charge at the Fort Hood military base in Texas over the number of suicides, murders, and disappearances of military personnel on site.

Elsewhere, we learn that noncooperation with New Jersey’s Chi-Com Virus tracking program is at or above 74-percent. Excellent, we do not respond to contact tracers here in California. We say, “F**k them!” Finally, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects the Pennsylvania mail-in balloting case (although it’s still on the docket).

Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 18,976 confirmed cases, 262 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 191,468 confirmed cases, 3,080 confirmed deaths, but like California, the apelike 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, West Virginia: 57,060 confirmed number of cases, 870 confirmed number of deaths, and 36,513 confirmed number of recoveries. Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there. Here they are: 348,285 confirmed cases, 2,932 confirmed deaths, and 330,188 confirmed recoveries.

The price of PLATINUM is $1,037.60 per troy oz, +0.60 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $3.50 per pound, +0.0005 (+0.01%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,327.90 per troy oz., -23.40 (-1.00%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $45.53 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.15%). Today, COCOA is $2,636.00 per metric ton, +61.00 (+2.37). As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.53 communist Chinese yuan. By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.83 euros. Speaking of economic matters, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin offers a $916 COVID-19 Chi-Vi relief bill to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and “Crying Chuck” Schumer, both Democrats, and both of whom call “Unacceptable.” WTF!
- 2020 Tuesday G: Stay tuned for results from this afternoon’s NFL game between (15) Dallas Cowboys, 17 (3-9) @ Baltimore Ravens, 34 (7-5) as well as tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1614 with a $264 million jackpot. Here are the winning numbers: 15, 19, 33, 39, 68, and Mega 25.
