- 2019 Tuesday: California junior Senator Kamala Harris[viii] became the 10th Democrat seeking the 2020 presidential nomination of her party to drop out of the race. She took an underhanded swipe at multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City and in the race for only a week when she wailed that she’s not a billionaire and cannot self-fund her campaign. Truth be told, she was a terrible candidate and unlikable. Good riddance. California needs to boot her butt out of office, too.
- 2020 Thursday: The Senate GOP warned President-Elect “Pro-China Joe” Biden not to send whack-job leftists to Capitol Hill for Cabinet positions. Currently, he has the Obama-Biden “B-Team” up for various positions including Neera Tanden, an ultra-leftist, bigoted racist, for his OMB director.

Meanwhile, here is the humorous note of the day: CNN calls out Democratic lawmakers for being hypocrites when it comes to observing their own harsh Chi-Vi restrictions. Nearly every Democrat of note has been caught going about their normal lives while everyone has to remain indoors trembling in fear. Elsewhere, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, safely re-elected to his seat tells the Trump legal team, “You have to prove your claims of rampant voter fraud.” What a POS. Speaking of voter fraud, after yesterday’s contentious hearings in Lansing, Michigan, regarding rampant voter fraud, similar hearings are occurring today in Atlanta, Georgia.
- 2020 Thursday A: President Donald J. Trump is NOT ruling out firing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr who seems to be MIA when it comes to doing anything about the rampant voter fraud we have observed from one end of the country in key battleground states such as Nevada, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, and Arizona. Elsewhere, U.S. Navy Secretary Kenneth Braithwaite told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Vladimir Putin’s Russia has ‘re-militarized the Arctic.’ Not good. Meanwhile, the U.S. Census Bureau has uncovered data glitches that are pushing back the release of its findings until sometime in February 2021. It’s all about the illegal aliens. Finally, DNI John Ratcliffe implores President-Elect Joe Biden NOT to politicize America’s intelligence-gathering agencies and to admit openly that communist China is the world’s number one threat.
- 2020 Thursday B: The United Nations says the Chi-Com Bat Virus has pushed 32 million people around the world into EXTREME POVERTY.

Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 339,619 confirmed cases, 2,883 confirmed deaths, and 325,660 confirmed recoveries.
- 2020 Thursday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,271,908 confirmed cases, 19,440 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 18,342 confirmed cases, 244 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 177,929 confirmed cases, 2,979 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other state: South Dakota- currently, they have 82,203 confirmed cases, 1,033 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence says the U.S. is ‘days away from the distribution of a vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’ Excellent, ONLY the Trump-Pence administration could have accomplished something as monumental as this.
- 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,969.52, UP 85.73 points (+0.29%). Next, the NASDAQ: 12,377.18, UP 27.82 points (+0.23%).

- 2020 Thursday G: President Donald J. Trump awards the Congressional Medal of Freedom to former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz. Great coach of a legendary team that never seemed to lose many games back in the 1980s. Speaking of President Trump, he is planning to be in Georgia on Saturday campaigning for Senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler. Elsewhere, federal law enforcement raid a house in Houston, Texas, in which, human traffickers are holding numerous illegal aliens naked, dirty, and afraid in cages. String the traffickers up!
- 2020 Thursday H: We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover what scurrilous shenanigans the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party underlings are up to today- you know you are as curious as are we… we must hold the Chi-Coms, the Canadians, the Iranians, and the flipping Russians accountable for what they have done to our country, Canadians first. Canada has declared WAR on us. Send us your Dominion bosses so we can grill the living f**k out of them.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY DECEMBER 03, 2021, BLOG POST #4,286
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Thursday, December 03, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:
Were it not for the Wuhan Bat Flu this year, I doubt we would have as many BIG CITY MAYORS on the list like we have this year but all of them are deserving of the award
Thursday, December 03, 2020, Today in History:
We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news. If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…
Friday, December 03, 2021:
[i] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade.
[ii] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.
[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011. Please look for them and enjoy.
[iv] We are not sure when we will promote the music of .38-Special but will do so when we do a big shindig for Southern rock bands. Please stay tuned for further developments.
[v] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015. We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey. We know you will enjoy them.
[vi] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014. We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.
[vii] The sad thing about this story is that the NYPD was only acting on orders from City Hall that wanted to bush illicit street merchants such as Mr. Garner who were not paying their fair share to the city in taxes. Mr. Garner gave us the phrase, “I can’t breathe!” Overweight and fighting the cops, he died in the struggle.
[viii] Senator Harris entered the race on January 21, 2019, doing so on the 90th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Prior to her (in order) the following Democrats dropped out: (1) Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-CA; (2) Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-CO; (3) Gov. Jay Inslee, D-WA; (4) Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass.; (5) Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY; (6) Mayor Bill Di Blasio, D-NY; (7) Rep.
