- 2003 Thursday: On this date, President George W.

- 2006 Sunday: In the United States, illegal aliens want to show the American people ‘what for’ by staying home from their jobs. They want to show the American people that WE NEED THEM. NO, we don’t need you and as many of us who are employers did back then, IF the illegals didn’t show up, we FIRED them and, in some cases, handed their information over to immigration authorities. Look, we need to send the welfare folks out into the fields, and we would bet they would get better jobs ASAP. Then, we could revive the Bracero Program that worked so well for decades.
- 2007 Monday: Four years ago, this very day, President George W. Bush stood on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and said- regarding the invasion of Iraq- “Mission accomplished.” Almost as soon as the words spilled out of his mouth, the insurgency broke out and claimed more U.S. lives than the invasion did. Anyhow, President Bush vetoed an Iraq War funding bill because included within it was more downtime between tours in the godforsaken country as well as increased training, better equipping, and hardcore benchmarks the Iraqi government had to meet. The more we look back at events such as this, the more we believe George W. Bush did a HORRIBLE thing and that the Deep State and the Neocons propelled him into it. We must always think of our servicemen-and-women ahead of regime change wars, especially when they are undeclared, and the entire nation is not behind the effort. Meanwhile, a May Day pro-illegal alien immigration rally goes awry in the City of Angels today as out-of-control illegal alien loves got their asses beat by the LAPD. Go for it.

(Note- move ‘em to Beijing).
- 2009 Thursday: U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter announced his retirement effective at the end of the court’s term in late June. Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than peaceful marches turning into violent mobs? Violence breaks out in the streets of Germany, Greece, and Turkey where cops try to quell mob violence to the best of their abilities. What is it with the communists? Can’t they do anything without launching violent attacks on people who have nothing with which to do with them? WTF?
- 2010 Friday: The Washington Post publishes a story in which, two retired U.S. Army generals tell the reporter that the U.S. military is having a tough time with 25-percent of the population being obese and ‘too fat to fight.’ Perhaps we should return to a draft and get these punks back in shape? Meanwhile, some member of the ‘religion of peace’ sets off a bomb inside a Mogadishu mosque sending at least two dozen people to visit with Allah sooner than they had anticipated.
- 2011 Saturday: At Abbottabad, Pakistan, U.S. Special Forces’ Seal Team Six locate and kill the most wanted terrorist in the world, Osama bin Laden along with several others who attempted to defend him. Late in the evening, U.S. President Barack Obama announces that American military operatives killed Osama bin Laden, founder of the militant Islamist group Al-Qaida. Former President George W.

- 2012 Tuesday: On the first anniversary of the slaying of long-sought jihadist Osama Bin Laden, President Barack Obama lands in Kabul, Afghanistan, on an unannounced visit. There, he meets with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. The two sign an agreement that outlines cooperation between the two nations in the War on Terror through 2014.

Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, the Boston police scoop up three close friends of the bombers who provided them aid and comfort. Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, a May Day celebration causes the celebrants to run amok, attacking police, breaking glass, and setting things ablaze. Nearly a dozen cops are injured in the melees around the city. That’s communists for you.
- 2014 Thursday: According to Brainy History, Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Mulally, will retire in July and that Mark Fields will replace him; Mulally restored profitability and distinguished the company as the only Big Three automaker to refuse government bailouts during the 2008-2009 recession. Elsewhere, as Vladimir Putin’s thugs continue trying to snip off the eastern portion of Ukraine- cos, don’t you know- a whole lotta Russians supposedly live there- Kiev orders a return to conscription, what we Americans call the draft. IF only the Obama administration would provide these guys with weapons.
- 2015 Friday: According to Brainy History, Elon Musk, head of Tesla Motors, announces the formation of Tesla Energy, a producer of large batteries for storage of generated renewable energy in homes and businesses.

As of now, NO one knows who killed Randy Hentzel and Harold Nichols.
- 2017 Monday: Musician Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins fame announces he will purchase the National Wrestling Alliance. Elsewhere, Kim Jong Un goes berserk as the U.S. flies two B-1B heavy bombers over the Korean Peninsula causing the ‘Brave Leader’ to bellow that the Trump administration is preparing for nuclear war against his country. Meanwhile, what’s Paris, France, without RIOTS on May Day? That’s what they get as mobs of protesters- supposedly preparing for upcoming elections- run amok in the streets causing riot police to fire tear gas and rubber bullets into the seething crowd.
- 2018 Tuesday: Another one bites the dust: the Dominican Republic, under pressure from the Chi-Coms, severs ties with Taiwan and opens diplomatic relations with Beijing. Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than communists and socialists running amok in the streets? In France, Paris sees some violent demonstrations what with car dealerships and fast-food restaurants being set ablaze. Not good. Maybe the authorities should utilize some lead on these scumbags? Just saying.
- 2019 Wednesday: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr sits before the Senate Judiciary Committee, so he shag questions on HOW he handled the fraudulent Robert S. Mueller III report into ‘Trump-Russia collusion,’ since proven to be little more than a hoax. Meanwhile, WikiLeaks founder receives a sentence of 50 weeks in a British slammer over his skipping bail back in 2012. After that…he could be on his way to the United States. Elsewhere, following the leak of a defense council meeting in Great Britain regarding the danger communist China’s Huawei poses the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May fires her Secretary of State Defense Gavin Williamson, blaming him for the leak.
- 2020 Friday: COVID-19 continues running amok and communist China continues acting like the Sgt. Schultz character on the old B & W TV show, “Hogan’s Heroes,” “We know nothing, we know nothing.” Okay, be like that. Anyhow, here are today’s statistics: around the globe, we have 3,033,296 confirmed cases of this mess, 235,290 confirmed deaths but 1,039,588 confirmed recoveries. In the United States, we have 1,128,460 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu, 65,435 confirmed deaths, and 137,944 confirmed recoveries. If you notice, confirmed deaths in the U.S. rose only 1,897 over the course of today while confirmed recoveries rose by 9,508 so folks, WTF? Far-left fascist governors, quit behaving like you work in China and not the United States- that means you, Ralph Northam, which means you, Gretchen Whitmer, that means you, northeast liberal lunatic governors and that means you, J.B. Pritzker. STOP behaving like Nazis!

- 2021 Saturday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 276,082 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 281.6 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,812 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,892 deaths.
- 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,744,182 confirmed cases, 61,865 confirmed deaths, and 1,992,932 confirmed recoveries.

Please do. We don’t want them. Elsewhere, BOTH Joe Biden and the GOP is trying to push the American people to get the shots. This reminds us of when the U.S. military was forcing the troops to get injections with which to combat anthrax before invading Iraq and many service personnel had issues with the vaccines. NOT for us. Speaking of Joe Biden, he continues masking up even though the Centers for Disease Control now say that we don’t other than on specific occasions.
- 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,481 confirmed cases, 6,363 confirmed deaths, and 830,625 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).

We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest. The next country on the list has the sixth lowest gasoline price in the world- Kazakhstan: $1.576 per U.S. Gallon.[xix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,236,690,578,042 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx] Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
- 2021 Saturday F: Political News I– For some unknown reason (yeah, right), Democrats won’t get behind Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley’s bill with which to rein in BIG TECH. The Dems are in bed with BIG TECH. Next, legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the FBI raid on Rudy Giuliani’s townhouse was “UNCONSTITUTIONAL.” Next (and we sincerely doubt this) the Democrats are acting as though they are willing to make concessions on the infrastructure bill they are trying to ramrod through Congress. Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘D.C. statehood should not be granted through unilateral congressional action but through the amendments process as it should.’ The Democrats are angry.
- 2021 Saturday G: Political News II– Former U.S. Secretary for the Interior Ryan Zinke is going to run for one of Montana’s new U.S. House seats. Elsewhere, the liberals are ginning up a buzz about U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer possibly going into retirement. Boy, does the left want to get this guy off the nation’s high court so they can emplace another piece of fecal matter on the court such as the always-angry Stacey Abrams (God forbid). Meanwhile, at a Utah state GOP convention, the good people of that state booed U.S. Senator Mitt Romney, RINO. Good. Finally, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom knows he is going to lose in November’s recall election because he is releasing 76,000 violent and repeat state prison offenders early. He wants to make sure the people of the Golden State suffer at the hands of these Untermensch. Thank you, governor, thank you.
- 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– North Korea says that the Biden regime’s actions suggest the United States wants war with the Democratic Republic of North Korea. Joe is taking us backward. Elsewhere, further west in the scenic countryside of Afghanistan’s eastern Logar province, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ conducted a car bombing that propelled 27 unfortunate souls to the ‘other side’ while leaving many more suffering to one degree or another. Many of the poor bastards were high school students. Wow. The Taliban are now warning of counterattacks on U.S. forces as today was the day for total withdrawal.[xxi] Meanwhile, regarding the Bat Flu vaccine, Canada is putting a halt on the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to contamination fears at the manufacturing plant. And the liberals SWEAR that the anxieties of vaccine receivers is what has led to blood clots and other reported problems and NOT the vaccine. Yeah, right. We’re with you, Canada.
- 2021 Saturday I: Miscellaneous News I– California is trying to get their hands on incarcerated Harvey Weinstein but the extradition request currently in on hold. He is going nowhere (although we are surprised that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden’s regime has not yet sprung a fellow groper). Next, the U.S. Army’s investigation into the death of Specialist Vanessa Guillen has determined that she was sexually abused, reported the abuse as she should to her superiors, and that nothing was done about it. This is beginning to sound like the movie, “A Few Good Men” (1992) because at least 20-plus people at Fort Hood, Texas, are in trouble for this case and several similar other cases. What is wrong with our military? Elsewhere, citizens of the Empire State will soon see their electricity bills skyrocket as the last reactor- Indian Point 3- at the nuclear power plant closed today. What is wrong with people? Nuclear energy is the safest and cheapest way of creating electricity, but the Green Meanies have everyone terrified of nuclear power plants (thank you, “The China Syndrome” (1979). Finally, in the era of feeble Joe Biden, both CNN and MSNBC have seen their ratings precipitously fall to the point where WE hope they go broke.
- 2021 Saturday J: Mass Shootings News– In Green Bay, Wisconsin, tonight, people were having an enjoyable time at the Oneida Casino when a gunman strolled in and began blasting the place. Several people were shot but at press time, the authorities had not yet shared information on the status of the victims. The cops did get their hands on the shooter, however. Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, today was a deadly day with two people shot and killed and another dozen shout and wounded. We await status on these victims, too. What is it in the era of Joe Biden that shootings are occurring all over the flipping place? What is it about drooling Joe Biden?

- 2021 Saturday L: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS / LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS- In Chicago, Illinois, today a 28-year-old psychopath- Elijah Rule Hill Prince- attacked a man in the 10500 block of South Emerald Avenue who refused to purchase something the punk said he was selling. This led to Mr. Prince leaping onto the man, putting him into a chokehold, hitting him in the face with a shovel, biting off chunks of his ears, biting his scalp open, gouging out his eyes including one in which he used a portion of a wooden stake which he then drove into the man’s socket. As his victim lay gasping for breath, Mr. Prince then spit into his gaping mouth. The victim’s wife rushed out to help her husband and Mr. Prince then bit off humongous portions of her ears, gouged out her eyes, beat her, and spit on her before ambling away leaving his victims in the street. The cops eventually found the sociopath, arrested him, and currently he is being held on $5 million bond. When asked about the blood that was all over him, Mr. Prince said it was the “Blood of peasants.” Folks, this is someone the cops should have shot dead on the spot. All you anti-cop people out there, stop f**king sniveling.

[i] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012. We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.
[ii] When we do the music of Blood, Sweat & Tears, we will also do the music of Chicago at the same time. Years ago, at the Google Blogger blog, we did the music of the third great horn band, Sons of Champlin.
[iii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt. The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017. We hope you will check them out.
[iv] As is the norm, we visit Martin Windrow’s amazing book, “The Last Valley,” De Capo Press (2006) as well as Time-Life Books for relevant information on this critical fight against communism.
[v] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade. At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.
[vi] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so. Please, stay tuned.
[vii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016. This included the members solo projects. The album on which, “Brown Sugar” appeared- “Sticky Fingers”- was offered on Wednesday, 13-April-2016. It was a wonderful addition to the band’s discography; we hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best rock music.
[viii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years. Please stay tuned for the day when we do.
[ix]We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011. Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. Seeing as how Fleetwood Mac was among the earliest bands we ever promoted, we will have to pick them back up and present not only the music of the band that has come out since then but also the individual member’s solo projects.

[xxi] Sadly, we believe this is all by design because we believe the Military-Industrial-Political Complex does not want to pull out of this s—hole country. Too much money is to be made supplying the military with the tools of the trade which means we want a ‘Gulf of Tonkin Incident’ to occur so decrepit old Joe Biden can mumble into a microphone, “We can’t leave. We must stay and fight this evil” which means another generation of American youth will continue being killed and maimed. WTF does it take to end a frigging war. The new corporate form of government has been with us since George W. Bush took us to war in Iraq over NOTHING and will remain here until the American people stand up and say, “WE AREN’T GOING TO TAKE THIS CRAP ANYMORE.” As an old man, I, Moses Scharbug III, most likely won’t be able to see it but I sure hope successive generations do. This crap must end.
