  56. 2016 Saturday: In the South Carolina GOP Primary, Donald Trump wins with 32./5% of the vote.  In the Democratic Primary in Nevada, Hillary Clinton wins big with 52.6% of the vote.  She smoked Bernie Sanders good!  Finally, Gov. Jeb Bush suspends his bid to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination on this date.  Say it ain’t so, Jeb!
  57. 2017 Monday: Government officials in the South Sudanese state of Unity declare a famine which affects 4.9 million people.  Meanwhile, Democrats and other assorted and sundry anti-Trumpers turn out in the streets, screaming, “NOT MY PRESIDENT!  NOT MY PRESIDENT!”  WTF is wrong with these people?  What’s wrong with them is the fact that they are communists and many are members of various rent-a-mobs.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, across the Atlantic in Great Britain, millions turn out in the streets to protest over there- coincidence?  Nope.  Still, the British government is considering canceling his upcoming state visit because they’ve bought into the bogus Trump-Russia collusion scam.
  58. 2018 Tuesday: During London Fashion Week, Queen Elizabeth II makes a surprise appearance.  Meanwhile, in the lovely socialist hellhole of Venezuela, the government of Nicolas Maduro announces the creation of its own virtual currency, the petro, to counteract their ongoing financial crisis.  Folks, nothing is going to help until the people overthrow the communist thugs destroying their country. 
  59. 2019 Wednesday: Sadly, Payless ShoeSource files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections and announces plans to shutter all its stores in the United States.  Payless has been a staple of American retail for decades so it’s extremely sad to see them vanish.   Speaking of American business giants, Ford Motor Company announces it will stop selling trucks in South America.  Guess the Japanese are taking over down there.
  60. 2020 Thursday: Judge Amy Berman Jackson- an Obama judge- gave Roger Stone- friend and confidant of President Donald J. Trump a 40-month sentence for lying before Congress and a few misguided, unfortunate tweets.  The gist of all this is that conservatives cannot laugh or joke because liberals will charge them with heinous crimes and do everything possible to send them to prison, hopefully, to die there if possible.  Meanwhile, President Trump speaks to a crowd of freed prisoners and slams what is happening to Stone.  Originally, Stone faced a possible sentence of 7-9 years in prison for doing practically nothing but that is how things now are in the United States of America.  Meanwhile, Stone’s defense team is seeking a new trial seeing as how the foreman of the jury, Tomeka Hart, is a raving lunatic leftist who hates Trump and said numerous prejudicial things against Stone and Trump in social media and then lied to Judge Jackson, claiming she could be ‘impartial.’  We think this ho needs to go to prison herself.  Finally, fallout from the previous night’s NBC-TV Democratic debate shows Michael Bloomberg at the bottom of the Democratic cesspool following a dismal debate performance.  Sad.
  61. 2021 Saturday: Day 32 of the Biden Regime.  First, Senator Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, says he plans to vote ‘NO’ on Joe Biden’s pick to head the White House Office of Management and Budget based on her past bigoted comments towards Republicans.   Next, following Newsmax’ Greg Kelly commenting on one of Joe Biden’s rescue dogs’ appearance, social media went berserk criticizing Mr. Kelly.  What Kelly said was true- the dog needs veterinarian care and a good bath.  ASAP.   Next, the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has him say, ‘things could be back to normal by 2022.’  F—k you, Joe, things are going to go back to normal NOW.  We are not going to put up with this bull crap much longer.  #OpenUpNow!  The earpiece also tells Joe Biden to ‘reassure the American people the vaccines are safe,’ the ones he claims did not exist prior to him becoming president.
  62. 2021 Saturday A: Republican Senator Tom Cotton proposes a bill with which to cut the Chi-Coms out of Hollywood.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms have infested Hollywood as you cannot miss Chi-Com companies in the opening credits anymore.   Meanwhile, United Airlines is trying to discover which one of its employees spilled the beans on the family of Ted Cruz’s recent vacation to Cancun, Mexico.  Like they care.  Next, a GOP group plans on using $25 million to enable Republicans to win back the House in 2022.  In other GOP news, Representative Madison Cawthorne tells Newsmax that the ‘Second Amendment is NOT about hunting but about having the ability to topple a tyrannical government.’  Elsewhere, Representative Devin Nunes, R-CA, also informs Newsmax that the ‘Dems think they’re in Hollywood and that the National Guard are extras on a filmset.’  It’s time for those troops to return home and for the fences to come down.  The ONLY reason the fences remain UP and the troops patrol the streets of Washington, D.C., is because they KNOW they did not win the 2020 Presidential Election.  Period.   Finally, U.S. Congressman Tom Reed, R-NY, says he’s eyeing a potential run against failed Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Hell, AOC could beat this piece of dog s**t hands down.
  63. 2021 Saturday B:  The storms in Texas have killed loads of people, many of whom may not be known for weeks what with people freezing to death because of lack of electricity, natural gas, and mishaps with propane and generator exhausts.  Add to that the fact that people WITH power are finding they have five-figure power bills.  Insane.  Joe Biden authorizes aid for Texas and mumbles something stupid about visiting Texas ‘sometime soon.’  Elsewhere, Ohio State University says it’s considering a debt-free degree.  Here is how you do it- instead of forcing students to take on massive quantities of debt for a degree, how about the schools take 6-percent of their annual income for- say- 30 years or until the debt is paid.  After all, everyone needs to earn money to pay bills.  Once the debt is paid, the former students can then donate time back to the universities to educate the next generation.  Saddling people with hundreds of thousands of dollars of school debt is insane and must stop while at the same time, universities have expenses, too.
  64. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 110,903,820 confirmed cases, +356,790, 2,456,069, confirmed deaths, +8,454, and 62,511,666 confirmed recoveries, +250,283.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,260,716 confirmed cases, up 84,288 from yesterday’s reporting, 500,833 confirmed deaths, UP 2,870, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge. 
  65. 2021 Saturday D: NOTE- in the White House 32 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 171,732 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 46,233 people, half of them in nursing homes.   Speaking of this fool who threatens ALL critics with ‘you’ll be sleeping with the fishes tonight,’ he still won’t apologize for the deaths his criminal policies caused.    Note- Chef Bea O’Malley- lifelong member of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day- says “IF Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has to use a ‘rap cartoon’ to appeal to us black folks to get the Chi-Vi vaccine, it’s all the more reason why ALL black folks should avoid this like a cross-burning in McKittrick, California, on a Friday night.”  Although she does not live in New York, the fact that this drooling mongoloid talks DOWN to black folks and encourages them to get the vaccine is enough reason to send every black and brown person to go running in the other direction.  Thank you, Bea.
  66. 2021 Saturday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,521,418 confirmed cases, 48,842 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,184 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Alabama.  Currently, they have 485,986 confirmed cases, 9,590 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 744,513 confirmed cases, 5,526 confirmed deaths, and 693,730 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Colombia.  Currently, they have  2.217,001 confirmed cases, 58,511 confirmed deaths, and 2,110,562 confirmed recoveries.   In other Beijing Bat Bug news, Pfizer seeks to store their vaccines at less frigid temperatures with which to ease logistics.
  67. 2021 Saturday F: In the Russian arctic, the Nornickel processing plant partially collapses killing three workers and wounding several others.   Speaking of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny loses his appeal and won’t be leaving prison anytime soon.  YOU should never have returned to the former USSR as the next time they poison you, you won’t be taken to Germany for treatment.  Elsewhere, a top official from the UN International Atomic Energy Agency- aka IAEA- is heading to Iran to visit with them regarding the jump-started JCPOA.  Meanwhile, a UN report says that Erik Prince violated an arms embargo on Libya’s rebel groups by shipping them weapons and mercenaries.   In other news, Joe Biden, and Canada’s Justin Trudeau plan to have a ‘virtual summit’ so they can discuss common shared interests between our two countries- like getting the Keystone XL Pipeline up and running again?  We can only hope.
  68. 2021 Saturday G: Having mentioned Texas’ energy grid collapse and the winter storms trashing the area, Representative August Pfluger, R-TX, says that ‘propping up solar and wind is what has caused problems in Texas.’  He also mentions that Joe Biden only approved disaster declaration for 77 of the 254 counties in the Lone Star State when in fact, the declaration of disaster should be for every county in the state.  We agree.  We have friends in Texas and all of them say things are extremely bad there.  Elsewhere, we learn that the left-wing U.S. Department of Justice is investigating seven police officers from five police departments across the country because these people happened to have been in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021.  Next, famed attorney and legal professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that the liberals have become ‘radical and intolerant.’  To us, this means they have become communists.  Time to fight back.  
  69. 2021 Saturday H: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings. Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3536 with a prize of $22 million on the line: 02, 05, 08, 21, 45, and Mega 11.  Out of 118,110 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,709.  The winning ticket was sold at Dolce Expresso in San Jose, CA 95112.  Next, here are the results for tonight’s Powerball Drawing #822 with a $78 million prize on the line: 04, 08, 22, 32, 58, and Powerball 04.  Out of 59,166 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $29,272 apiece.

Trump a 40-month sentence for lying before Congress and a few misguided, unfortunate tweets. The gist of all this is that conservatives cannot laugh or joke because liberals will charge them with heinous crimes and do everything possible to send them to prison, hopefully, to die there if possible.  Meanwhile, President Trump speaks to a crowd of freed prisoners and slams what is happening to Stone.  Originally, Stone faced a possible sentence of 7-9 years in prison for doing practically nothing but that is how things now are in the United States of America.  Meanwhile, Stone’s defense team is seeking a new trial seeing as how the foreman of the jury, Tomeka Hart, is a raving lunatic leftist who hates Trump and said numerous prejudicial things against Stone and Trump in social media and then lied to Judge Jackson, claiming she could be ‘impartial.’  We think this ho needs to go to prison herself.  Finally, fallout from the previous night’s NBC-TV Democratic debate shows Michael Bloomberg at the bottom of the Democratic cesspool following a dismal debate performance.
