BB. 1942 Friday: On the eighth day of the Battle of El Alamein in North Africa, fresh Australian troops assault the Afrika Korps defenses. On the Eastern Front, the bloodbath in Stalingrad continues. General Zhukov on the eastern side of the Volga River continues funneling just enough reinforcements to General Chuikov in the city to keep the Germans to continue committing more and more troops into the fray while ignoring their supply lines and their Axis allies thin lines north and south of the city. The Russians are waiting for a freeze that when it happens will enable the tanks to have mobility of movement when the counteroffensive begins.

  56. 2014 Thursday: Iraqi troops find a mass grave with 150 corpses of Sunni tribesmen who fought back against the ISIS garbage.  Meanwhile, Kurdish forces approach Kobani as they continue fighting against the jihadist scum threatening the peace of the region.  Meanwhile, Syrian government air forces kill at least 200 civilians on the ground which leads U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to suggest that Coalition airstrikes may have the adverse reaction of aiding the Syrian government rather than the Syrians opposed to the Assad regime.
  57. 2015 Friday: The Obama administration announces it will send U.S. ground troops to fight ISIS in Syria.  Had the administration kept troops in Iraq instead of pulling them out posthaste and leaving all our military equipment there, ISIS would indeed have been the “JV team” that Obama labeled it as.
  58. 2016 Sunday: FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey[viii] reopens the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s ‘missing emails’ approximately one week out from Election Day.  Everyone is curious as to why this corrupt POS would do such a thing, especially the Clinton campaign.   Elsewhere, Saudi-led coalition aircraft attack Houthi rebels in Yemen killing at least 60 of the scumbags.  Keep killing them.  Meanwhile, in Game 5 of the World Series, the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians by a score of 3-2.     
  59. 2017 Monday: After former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Rick Gates surrender to the FBI, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, aka the Boy Scout, announces his first indictments in the Trump-Russia Collusion investigation.  (In 2020, following a failed impeachment, the world would learn that the entire thing was a sham and that the Democrats were running a coup).  Elsewhere, on Capitol Hill, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis tell lawmakers they believe the Trump administration has the right to wage war on ANYONE around the globe suspected of terrorism.  Sounds like these two goobers are seeking avenues by which, they can wage endless wars, something against which, President Trump fought.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump says he is looking at ways of ending ‘birthright citizenship’ in the U.S. where ANYONE born in the country- regardless of citizenship or immigration status (meaning ILLEGAL ALIENS) automatically become U.S. citizens.  Friends, this should have happened decades ago as we have a national industry by which illegals cross our borders and foal their calves.  This must stop NOW.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: Across the state of California, massive wildfires continue burning down vast stretches of the state.  Flames are threatening the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library as fire crews struggle to contain them.  More than 30,000 people have had to flee their homes.  Liberals screech about “CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!  WE ONLY HAVE 2-3 YEARS BEFORE THE PLANET DIES.”  Yet, north of Washington state and south of California into Mexico, NO fires blaze away.  Conservatives say, “Let’s do proper forest management and water conservation.”  Plain and simple.  Elsewhere, in a decisive Game 7 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Houston, winning their first championship and also becoming the first team to win four road games.  They lost all three at home in Washington, D.C.   The Willie Mays Most Valuable Player Award goes to pitcher Stephen Strasburg for his two winning performances but especially his Game 6 performance pitching into the 8th inning.   Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, 50 youthful climate change activists (alarmists) stage a sit-in at House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s office.  Stop wasting your time, kids, the speaker cares nothing about you.  
  62. 2020 Friday: Former Green Bay Packers quarterback and Super Bowl champion Brett Favre endorses President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, we learn that 25 legislators are pressuring Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pack the U.S. Supreme Court as soon as the Dems regain control of the U.S. Senate which they anticipate doing soon.  Moving on, Hostess Twinkie Don Lemon on CNN calls Trump supporters ‘drug addicts,’ that he has to cut many people lose and until they hit rock bottom and ask for help, he wants nothing to do with them.  Wow.  Business Insider reports that legions of journalists are donating to Democratic candidates, something media organizations used to discourage but nowadays, seemingly promote.
  63. 2020 Friday A: White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany says that Wall Street donations to “Pro-China Joe” Biden are ‘befuddling.’  Biden plans on taxing Wall Street banks out of existence with the appointment of Sen. Liz Warren, D-Massachusetts, to Treasury secretary.  That woman wants to dish out a whole lotta payback.  Elsewhere, in Minnesota, a federal appeals court upends the state’s plan on extending mail-in voting and registration times.  Down in Florida, early voting sites close down due to spikes in COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, the “Baby Evita,” AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (real name: Sandy Cortez), a day after appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in a $14,000 wardrobe ensemble that drove some Republicans to point out the hypocrisy exhibited by the socialist skank leads her to say to them, “Drink some water and don’t be a racist.”  Uh, okay.  We hope you lose on Tuesday. 
  64. 2020 Friday B: President Donald J. Trump is stumping the campaign trail holding 14 rallies in 3 days.  Meanwhile, decrepit old “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to states that should be locks for him because they are leaning towards Trump.  Going to be a hot and heavy finish.  Meanwhile, RNC chairperson Ronna McDaniel says Republicans are winning the early voting turnout as GOPPERS are flocking to the polls expecting riots, assaults, and even homicide on Election Day in many parts of the country.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 45,466,721 confirmed cases, +561,201, 1,186,913, confirmed deaths, +7,702, and 30,583,602 confirmed recoveries, +380,131.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,129,855 confirmed cases, up 86,485 from yesterday’s reporting, 233,117 confirmed deaths, UP 923, and 5,531,311 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,728.  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: 928,240 confirmed cases, 17,581 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,046 confirmed cases, 216 confirmed deaths, and 11,682 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 110,777 confirmed cases, 2,463 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 308,840 confirmed cases, 2,329 confirmed deaths, and 290,130 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 941,851 confirmed cases, 18,373 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries- por que?
  66. 2020 Friday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,501.60, DOWN 157.51 points (-0.59%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,911.59, DOWN 274.00 points (-2.45%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,269.96, DOWN 40.15 points (-1.21%).  Price of GOLD: $1,878.80 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.72 per troy oz., +0.069 (+0.29%).  Price of PLATINUM: $847.00 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.17%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,217.20 per troy oz., +18.70 (+0.85%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.05 per #, +0.003 (+0.10%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $35.72, -0.07 (-0.20%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.69 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.73 Afghan afghani.
  67. 2020 Friday E: A Connecticut judge says that Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy’s widow, Ethel, will not face another trial after spending years in prison for the murder of Martha Moxley, decades ago.  Controversy has forever swirled around this case as many believe that since he is a relative of the legendary Kennedy Family, that he was unfairly targeted for the murder of the 15-year-old Moxley at one of the family’s seaside residences back in 1975.  Some suspect that the so-called “Lion of the Senate”- Senator Teddy Kennedy- might have had a hand in it and Skakel paid the price.  The prosecutor says the case cannot be proven beyond the shadow of a doubt and so Skakel will emerge a free man after 45 years in the slammer.  Good for you. 
  68. 2020 Friday F: Tens of thousands of members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ are protesting in streets across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia protesting France’s crackdown on Muslim extremists following the murders of three women- one beheaded- in the Basilica of Notre Dame in Nice.  France through stupid policies that have allowed in armies of people who will never become ‘French’ has led to them going berserk whenever they perceive someone has criticized their backward faith.  Look, undergo a flipping reformation already and join the modern world.  Congratulations, France, for doing what must be done.
  69. 2020 Friday G: Texas voters have cast more than 9 million early votes which is more than the entirety of the votes cast in the Lone Star State back in 2016.  The Democrats are doing everything possible to flip Texas from RED to BLUE using any means necessary.  Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants the U.S. Treasury secretary’s gig when “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins on November 3, while crackpot Senator Bernie Sanders wants to be the Labor secretary.  Failed loser Beto O’Rourke wants to be the ‘gun-grabber czar’ while Congresswoman Sandy Cortez wants to be the head of the Climate Change Bureau so she can take away the rights of the American people.   Speaking of the upper crust, Lori Loughlin, best-known for the old show, “Full House,” reported to a federal prison near Dublin, California, to begin her two-month stint for having bribed their daughters into USC.  When she’s out, hubby Mosimmo Giannulli, will report to the federal pen to do his five-month stint.  Poor bastard paid half-a-million bucks to get their daughters into the University of Southern California by having them pose as FAKE ROWERS.  Wow.
  70. 2020 Friday H: As Election Day draws near, we know the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are working hard to steal this election from the American people.  We hope you will stick around for updates on the Chi-Vi as well as whatever we uncover the Beijing bullies and their running dog patsies are up to…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra released their next studio album, “Alone in the Universe” on November 13, 2015.  Jeff Lynne performs most of the instruments with a few extra musicians adding additional flavor.  Critics reviewed the album favorably and fans were excited that the group was back in some semblance of being.  Say what you will, bands that began back in the late 1960s or early 1970s and then broke up and reformed are never as exciting as they were in their heyday but hey!  Lifelong fans tend to revel when ANY newer music appears which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whomever else you do for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this one simple maxim: anything from the bands of the 1960s or 1970s beats any of this anemic he-she crap modern-day bands foist on us.  Period.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY OCTOBER 30, 2020

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Friday, October 30, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:

[i] 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.  Sadly, we failed to do the music of the Great Society at the time or that of various members’ solo catalogs.  We hope to rectify that mistake one day so please stay tuned.

[ii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iii] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[iv] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[viii] Many people speculate as to WHY Comey would reopen the investigation into Hillary’s missing emails so close to the Election?  Was it because he was demonstrating HIS POWER to Hillary that IF she failed to keep him on at best or worst for the American people, make him the next Attorney-General of the United States that he could destroy her?  Yes, the FBI ‘discovered Anthony Weiner’s laptop with information on it besides the people with whom he was sexting but why would a Deep State maggot like Comey do this to a person whom he wanted to serve?  We await answers…

303. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2020

S. 1942 Thursday: The Nazis murder 16,000 Jews at Pinsk in the Soviet Union during World War II. Meanwhile, Branch Rickey becomes the general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Finally, on the seventh day of the Battle of El Alamein in North Africa, Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery commits more British troops to the assault on the Axis defenses. On the Eastern Front, German General Friedrich Paulus becomes concerned about his flanks and the bulges of Soviet troops clinging to bridgeheads north and south of the city where Italians, Hungarians, and Romanians guard his flanks. Supplies are tenuous into Stalingrad for both sides. German losses so far approached 8,000 dead and 31,000 wounded while the Soviets thus far had lost 80,000 killed, wounded, captured, or through desertions. Even Gen. Vasily Chuikov had seen his subordinates in charge of armor, artillery, and engineering desert their posts.

Meanwhile, all but 10 members of the Houston Texans took a knee during the national anthem, being the worthless POS’s they are, reacting to a remark from team owner Bob McNair to other NFL owners that “we can’t have the inmates running the prison.”  F**k them football players for being so flipping sensitive.  Grow a frigging pair, already.
  53. 2018 Monday: Long-time leftist leader of Germany- Angela Merkel- announces she will not seek another term as chancellor of the European powerhouse in 2021 and that when her term is up, she will also step down as head of her party.  Down in Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, conservative politician, defeats his left-wing challenger Fernando Haddad in the presidential election.
  54. 2019 Tuesday: Climate Change alarmists are at it again: in a study published in “Nature Communications” by ‘Climate Central,’ ‘rising seas around the world could endanger more than 150 million people worldwide, three times higher than previously thought- when?  A  decade from now?  A century?  Or is this more bulls**t designed to strike terror into the hearts of young people across the globe?  Speaking of REAL danger, California continues to burn down, causing PG&E to flip the switch on more than 1.5 million customers in the vain hope they can halt the various wildfires’ progress.  Manage the forests and we would not be in the trouble in which, we find ourselves.  In Game 6 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 7-2 in Houston.
  55. 2020 Thursday: Both President Donald J.

  56. 2020 Thursday A: Department of Homeland Security officials warn that ‘IF Joe Biden wins on Election Day, there will be a massive invasion across the southern border.’  Speaking of border issues, Twitter (break these SOBS up) suspends the account of the U.S. border chief Mark Morgan for celebrating the success of the wall between the United States and Mexico for bringing the numbers of illegals attempting to sneak across the border to almost nil.  Time to break Twitter up.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court allows extensions for the arrival of ballots in Pennsylvania and North Carolina.  In the same vein, the Girl Scouts of America delete a tweet celebrating the successful nomination and placement onto the U.S. Supreme Court of Amy Coney Barrett because of leftist backlash.  Finally, Dr. Tony Fauci and Goldman Sachs demand a national mask mandate as a means of stopping the Chi-Com Virus.
  57. 2020 Thursday B: In France, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again as an Islamist thug murders three women- including the beheading of one- at the Basilica of Notre Dame in Nice- whereas another one attempting to cause mayhem gets shot by the cops. Elsewhere on the foreign affairs front, the White House moves ahead with the sale of 50 F-35 jets to the United Arab Emirates.
  58. 2020 Thursday C: Glenn Greenwald, co-founder of the Intercept, posts his resignation letter on Twitter today.  Since the Intercept has joined in the crowd that is doing everything possible to censor any stories connected to Hunter Biden’s laptop or to his dad’s crooked dealings in Chi-Com land, the Ukraine, and wherever else President Barack Obama had sent him, he felt he could no longer work there.  What a shame.  Go to Newsmax.  Speaking of the Biden Family story, Ronna McDaniel, chairperson of the Republican National Committee, says ‘censorship of this story is a step closer to socialism.’  We can attest to that because some unseen entity out there has slashed our numbers to almost ZERO.   Elsewhere, UBS poll shows investors favor President Donald J. Trump over “Pro-China Joe” Biden by 52-48 percent.  No kidding!  Meanwhile, we learn that the little closet pink cupcake Jack Dorsey of Twitter has censored President Donald J. Trump 65 times (at least) and “Pro-China Joe” Biden ZERO times.  Again, it’s time to break up Twitter, Google/Alphabet, and Facebook.  Deport Sundar Pichai and his family back to Bangladesh.
  59. 2020 Thursday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 44,708,172 confirmed cases, +396,498, 1,177,077, confirmed deaths, +5,791, and 30,130,418 confirmed recoveries, +240,476.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,026,274 confirmed cases, UP 87,139 from yesterday’s reporting, 232,008 confirmed deaths, UP 1,151, and 5,512,841 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,204.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 313,114 confirmed cases, 2,508 confirmed deaths, and 299,439 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Thursday E: 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: 924,336 confirmed cases, 17,554 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,975 confirmed cases, 215 confirmed deaths, and 11,605 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 110,193 confirmed cases, 2,458 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Maryland- currently, they have 143,875 confirmed cases, 4,127 confirmed deaths, and 8,144 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Larry Hogan for your honesty.
  61. 2020 Thursday F: We had a up-and-down day in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,659.11, UP 139.16 points (+0.52%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,185.59, UP 180.72 points (+1.64%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,310.11, UP 39.08 points (+1.19%).  Price of GOLD: $1,866.20 per troy oz., -1.80 (-0.10%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.30 per troy oz., -0.006 (-0.26%).  Price of PLATINUM: $850.30 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.09%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,198.50 per troy oz., -52.10 (-2.31%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.06 per #, +0.002 (+0.07%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $36.01, -0.16 (-0.44%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.71 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.86 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.35 Taiwanese dollars.
  62. 2020 Thursday G: Breaking News- Greg Kelly on Newsmax reports that the U.S. Department of Justice has been investigating Hunter Biden since December 2019.  One of the things being investigating are possible money-laundering charges.  One might think word of this would have arisen while the House was running the impeachment sham against President Donald J. Trump.  Shame.  
  63. 2020 Thursday H: Tonight’s Thursday Night Football Game (1) Atlanta Falcons, 25 (2-6) @ Carolina Panthers, 17 (3-5).
  64. 2020 Thursday I: In other news, the Trump administration reverses an Obama era policy that prevented Americans born in Jerusalem from listing either the city or the nation of Israel on their passports. The John Roberts Supreme Court helped Obama accomplish this by saying its standing interfered with the president’s right to set foreign policy.  What? Screw Obama, the man was an anti-Semite as are many Democrats.  Elsewhere, although historically still high, new jobless claims dropped to 751,000, the lowest since March.  Numbers are down by 40,000 across 30 states with California, Florida, and Texas showing the biggest gains in the era of COVID-19.  Sadly, IHOP says it’s going to close 100 restaurants across the country thanks to the ongoing Chi-Vi pandemic. 
  65. 2020 Thursday J: Friends, we invite everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms, their Democratic Party gofers and their Fake News allies are up to today- you will want to know, believe us.

Trump has long predicted.
  52. 2020 Wednesday B: Ex-DHS official Miles Taylor comes out as “Anonymous,” the one who was working against President Donald J. Trump from within the administration, trying to take him down from the inside.  No one knows who this POS is or why he was disgruntled but everyone gets theirs.  It is just a matter of time… Meanwhile, following Tony Bobulinski going public on the rampant corruption within the Biden Family and the Harris-Biden 2020 Campaign- Build Back Better (Bullshit)- the campaign makes it known to ALL media companies that anyone who shares the Hunter Biden laptop story or what the brave Bobulinski said on Tucker Carlson’s show last night will be SHUNNED from the Biden White House.  SHUNNED.

S. 1942 Tuesday: On the fifth day of the Battle of El Alamein, despite heavy losses, Australian troops continue pushing through the defensive rings of the Afrika Korps. On the Eastern Front in the fight at Stalingrad, German machine gunners manage to make it close to the Volga River by exploiting the growing gap between the Red October and Barricades tractor factories. They approach within 400 yards, bringing the last remaining Soviet ferry across the river under direct fire. In the Caucasus, the 23rd Panzer Division in joint operations with the Romanian 2nd Mountain Division capture the town of Zhemiaga which isolates Soviet defenders as their lines of communication are cut off.

  54. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,463.19, DOWN 222.19 points (-0.80%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,431.35, UP 72.41 points (+0.64%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,390.68, DOWN 10.29 points (-0.30%).  The price of GOLD is $1,909.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.44 per troy ounce, -0.135 (-0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $881.30 per troy oz, -5.50 (-0.62%) while the price of COPPER is $3.08 per pound, -0.018 (-0.58%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,353.90 per troy oz., -14.80 (-0.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.87 per barrel, -0.70 (-1.77%).  Today, COCOA is $2,492.00 per metric ton, +0.37 (+1.51).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.70 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  55. 2020 Tuesday D: We learn today that following a police shooting of a violent black man armed with a large knife in Philadelphia last night, 30 officers were injured in the subsequent mob violence that erupted out of nowhere.  The cops arrived at a home where a domestic violence event was in progress and on police cameras, the suspect stormed out the house, knife held high, and rushed the cops.  They shot and killed him.  Moral of the story- don’t threaten the cops.   Speaking of Pennsylvania, President Trump bets the upcoming election on the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Minnesota.  Meanwhile, CNN blocks ads on the middle-class tax hikes “Pro-China Joe” Biden plans to enact once he’s elected president.   Talk about Orwellian.  Elsewhere, President Trump lifts tariffs on Canadian low-cost aluminum but tells Ottawa that if they continue cheating the United States, he will slap them back on their exports.
  56. 2020 Tuesday E: The Los Angeles Dodgers win their first World Series since 1988 by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 in Game 6, winning four games to two.  Congratulations, you guys have been trying for a long time so savor this victory.
  57. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1602 with a jackpot of $109 million: 06, 13, 34, 46, 62, and Mega 01.  Highest winners were five people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,859 apiece.
  58. 2020 Tuesday G: Former business partner with Hunter Biden and the Biden Family, Tony Bobulinski, sat down with Tucker Carlson on Fox News tonight and laid out step-by-step the corruption rank among the Bidens.  He pointed out how they were selling out the interests of their country on behalf of their own financial interests and the Fake News media continues trying to erase this story, cover it up, and protect stumbling, bumbling, rumbling old senile “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Democrats continue screeching it’s ‘Russian disinformation on behalf of the Trump campaign.’  Folks, a whole lotta payback is coming to these scurrilous scumbags on Election Day.  Join us and tens of millions of early voters voting STRAIGHT GOP.
  59. 2020 Tuesday H: Friends, the closer we come to the election, the more the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party hacks try to steal the elections by sowing as much confusion as possible into the system.  We hate to say this, after the elections, there is going to be hell to pay- for them.

Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front in the battle at Stalingrad, the Germans are pushing the Soviet forces clinging to the two major factories and are drawing closer to the Volga River where they hope to halt cross-river traffic.

  55. 2019 Saturday: In Game 4 of the 2019 World Series, the Houston Astros beat the Washington Nationals 8-1 in Washington, D.C.  Elsewhere, a raid by U.S. Special Forces in Syria kills the founder of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who reportedly ran down a tunnel screaming and crying like a bitch, threw his wives in front of a dog sent to drive him out, and then detonated a suicide vest.
  56. 2020 Monday: The New York Post- the brave media organization that exposed the corruption that seems to be rank within the Biden campaign in general and in the Biden Family in particular, its ties to the Chi-Coms, the Ukrainians, and other thuggish dictators around the world- has endorsed President Donald J. Trump to ‘make America great again, again!’  Meanwhile, reports continue to surface that say President Trump upon winning re-election on November 3 will fire both the corrupt director of the FBI, Christopher Wray, and Deep State apparatchik CIA Director Gina Haspel.  Both of them should have been terminated long ago but look for it to occur on November 4.  Elsewhere, rapper 50 Cent retracts his endorsement of President Trump following his ex-girlfriend, Chelsea Handler, a bleach blond, saying he ‘ain’t black if he supports Trump’ and that she would throw another round of poontang on him if he retracted his endorsement.’  Dude, you can muff anywhere.
  57. 2020 Monday A: At a pro-Trump rally in Los Angeles, California, violence breaks out as a mob of celebrity anti-Trumpers attacks them  Many are arrested including Offset, Cardi B’s boy toy.  Big whoop.  In New York City at a Jews for Trump rally, violence breaks out there leading to the arrests of at least seven anti-Semitic Democrats, this after Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo threatens the Orthodox Jewish community with loss of educational funding ‘cuz they are disobeying his onerous Chi-Vi lockdowns and restrictions.’  Talk about an anti-Semite, what the hell is up with you, Gov. Cuomo, you, sir, are a murderer for having sent COVID-19-infected persons into rest homes where they could infect vulnerable populations.  Shame on you!
  58. 2020 Monday B: Hillary Clinton, disgruntled loser of the 2016 presidential election declares that ‘Republicans are cowards, that they are spineless, enablers of Donald Trump.’  Thank you for your input, loser.  Meanwhile, the Kremlin blasts “Pro-China Joe” Biden for spreading Russia hatred and for being a Russophobe.  Shame on you, Joe.  Democrats have always worshipped Russia so why you attacking them now and not the flipping Chi-Coms?  Wow.  What a day, going to be busy.  Speaking of Trump, he is barnstorming Pennsylvania today with THREE BIG RALLIES ahead of Election Day.  Polls show “Pro-China Joe” Biden with a lead of four points.  Oh, oh.
  59. 2020 Monday C: Rasmussen has released a new poll, one that shows among likely voters, President Trump leads “Pro-China Joe” Biden by a margin of 48 percent to 47 percent.  Elsewhere, Ohio law enforcement authorities announce the results of Operation Safety Net, an operation begun earlier in the year to go after human traffickers and their customers: 177 scumbags under arrest and 109 survivors rescued from their foul clutches.  God bless you! 
  60. 2020 Monday D: The U.S. State Department approved another $2.37 billion in potential arms sales to Taiwan.  Meanwhile, pro-socialist Facebook claims it has ‘helped 4.4 million people to register to vote.’  Elsewhere, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi moans that the White House rejected the Dems’ latest COVID-19 testing plan.  “Pro-China Joe” Biden says, ‘White House celebration for Amy Coney Barrett becoming the next SCOTUS associate justice is inappropriate.’  Sadly, due to COVID-19 spikes in numbers and no sign of a Chi-Vi relief bill, the DOW plunged 650 points (see stock market numbers down the line).  The markets are so squeamish.    
  61. 2020 Monday E: The Washing Post writes that ‘we must treat the Hunter Biden laptop story as a foreign intelligence operation even though it’s probably not.’  Wow.  And they claim Russia ‘owns Donald Trump.’  Friends, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, and the Iranians own former Vice President Joe Biden.  Dire news for Biden-Harris: Rasmussen has Trump’s job approval rating at 52-percent. 
  62. 2020 Monday F: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 43,187,134 confirmed cases, +301,002, 1,155,653, confirmed deaths, +3,339, and 29,018,032 confirmed recoveries, +164,496.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 8,790,093 confirmed cases, up 68,587 from yesterday’s reporting, 228,833 confirmed deaths, UP 369, and 5,430,746 confirmed recoveries, UP 15,994.  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: 910,847 confirmed cases, 17,361 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,823 confirmed cases, 212 confirmed deaths, and 11,405 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 107,293 confirmed cases, 2,396 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Connecticut- currently, they have 68,099 confirmed cases, 4,589 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Ned Lamont for NOT reporting recoveries; how about sharing the truth?  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 310,851 confirmed cases, 2,453 confirmed deaths, and 294,854 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Iran: they have 574,896 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 32,953 confirmed deaths and 459,250 confirmed recoveries.  For a lark, let’s look at the country where the pandemic began in a biowarfare lab in Wuhan, communist China: 85,810 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 80,911 confirmed recoveries.  Our sources in Hong Kong tell us the REAL numbers on the mainland are between 300-450 times that number: low end- 25,743,000 confirmed cases, 1,390,200 confirmed deaths, and 24,273,300 confirmed recoveries.  Remember- that’s the low end.
  63. 2020 Monday G: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,685.38, DOWN 650.19 points (-2.29%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,358.94, DOWN 189.34 points (-1.64%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,400.97, DOWN 64.42 points (-1.86%).  Price of GOLD: $1,904.80 per troy oz., -0.90 (-0.05%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.40 per troy oz., -0.02 (-0.08%).  Price of PLATINUM: $876.50 per troy oz., -0.90 (-0.10%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,363.00 per troy oz., -2.50 (-0.11%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.09 per #, +0.003 (+0.10%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $38.71, +0.15 (+0.39%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.71 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.78 Afghan afghani.
  64. 2020 Monday H: The U.S. Senate votes to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be the nation’s 115th Associate Supreme Court justice by a vote of 52-48.  Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, called this the ‘darkest day in American history’ and vowed revenge when Democrats hold power. Other Democrat senators like Richard “Dick” aka “Hobgoblin” Blumenthal and Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, she of phony Indian heritage vow ‘they’ll get even’ especially since President Trump did not ‘honor’ the purported dying wishes of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who wanted another president to fill her seat.  Folks, she could have retired under President Obama but believed- erroneously so- that the fix was in for Hillary Rodham Clinton and the first female president would nominate her successor.  Wah, wah, wah.  Ah, well, congratulations, Associate Justice Barrett.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court will not permit a mail-in ballot extension in the state of Wisconsin.
  65. 2020 Monday I: Monday Night Football: the Chicago Bears (5-2) are in Los Angeles playing the Rams (5-2).  The Rams won 24-10.

Trump has separated ties with his Presbyterian upbringing and has become a nondenominational Christian.   Elsewhere, a Pennsylvania appellate court upholds a lower court’s ruling that the Trump administration cannot have poll watchers in satellite election sites around the state.  Major concerns exist that Pennsylvania will become Ground Zero for a massive drive by the Democratic Party to steal the 2020 presidential election and with all sorts of shenanigans occurring already, it is important to monitor a crooked state.   Speaking of Pennsylvania, we learn that more than 50-percent of mail-in ballots have been cast.

  73. 2020 Sunday E: As always, we encourage everyone to stick around in order to uncover whatever the Chi-Coms and their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to- you know they’re up to no good and are seeking to steal the upcoming elections so they can get a Democrat, any Democrat, into the White House…

[i] We look forward to doing the music of YES at some point within the next few years.

[ii] We are not sure as to when we will promote the music of the Pretenders but when we do, you will be the first to know so rejoice.

[iii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] This was the beginning of the empowerment of Communist China and which set this fascist country on a trajectory to try to become the ruler of the world.  This and their admittance to the World Trade Organization were BIG mistakes.

[vi] Virtually every politician running for office on the national level has said they were going to get rid of this evil act and yet it remains the law of the land.  In the end, NO American politician will get rid of this criminal act that strips the American people of their rights.

[vii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.

[viii] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

  62. 2020 Saturday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, various European Union nations are joining with the U.S. to combat the Chi-Coms’ main spying apparatus, Huawei.  Sweden and the United Kingdom have already banned them while Germany announces it’s going to crack down on the communist intelligence-gathering apparatus.  Time to bring the world’s supply chains home.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, the FDA greenlights AstraZeneca to get back on track with their Chinese Virus vaccine tests while Johnson & Johnson announces they, too, will get back to work on developing their vaccine following some unexplained illnesses among test volunteers.
  63. 2020 Saturday C: Government offices in northern Los Angeles County had to call in National Guard cyber experts to combat a North Korean assault on government cyber systems.  The supposed culprit is a bug called “KIMJONGRAT.”  We hope they clean this POS cyber mole out of their systems.  Kim Jong Un- watch the f**k out.
  64. 2020 Saturday D: U.S. Special Forces kill al-Qaida’s No. 2 via a drone strike.  Speaking of terrorists, Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry reports a suicide attack on an educational center kills 18 people and wounds another 57.   Thank you, terrorist scum.

  66. 2020 Saturday F: Famed country-and-folk singer-songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker- the man who penned the tune, “Mr. Bojangles,” made famous by the Nitty-Gritty Dirt Band died at age 78 after battling cancer and its attendant problems.  His career spanned 51 years and he released more than 31 original albums.  Heaven’s rock-and-roll band has added another icon to its ranks.  God bless you.
  67. 2020 Saturday G: President Donald J. Trump is blitzing the country holding several rallies in a variety of states across the nation.  Meanwhile, the Biden-Harris ticket (or the Harris-Biden ticket if you believe the VP’s husband’s comments about being ‘married to the next president’ [what a loser] is having difficulty drawing flies and worse yet, the former VP Biden calls supporters of President Trump, “Chumps.”  Way to go, “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Meanwhile, Kamala Harris, a woman not down for the struggle no matter how much she claims she is does a stop in Cleveland, Ohio, and has to ask her handlers, “are we in Cleveland?’  Thank you, hot mic!
  68. 2020 Saturday H: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Drawing #3502 with a prize of $20 million.  The numbers: 08, 20, 24, 34, 35, and Mega 03.  One person had five numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $35,117.

  69. 2020 Saturday I: Stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party hacks are up to today as they seek a way by which, they can steal the upcoming elections.  We cannot permit these scumbags to transform our economy into a fascist-communist country.  Stick around…

297. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2020

R. 1942 Friday: During World War II, British forces launched a major offensive against Axis troops at El Alamein in North Africa resulting in an Allied victory. Meanwhile, on the Eastern Front, elements of the German Sixth Army take control of 90-percent of the Red October tractor Factory and parts of the Barricades factory. Soviet resistance continues fighting on but casualties are shockingly high as both sides struggle to create a final outcome in the fight for the city. East of the Volga River, the Soviet buildup continues but German surveillance is lax and does not pick it up. Axis allies Rumania, Hungary, and Italy are aware of it and report the information to their higherups- the Germans- who dismiss it believing the Soviet pool of manpower is almost dry.

Bush administration’s Pentagon has seen private military contracting firms contracts quadruple to $4 billion per year.  Like privatized prisons, leftists hate this sort of activity and want it to stop.
  43. 2008 Thursday: Recent polls in the battleground states show that the Obama-Biden ticket is building up steam and that the McCain-Palin ticket is going to lose big time.  Perhaps if McCain would put up a fight instead of firing everyone who uses Barack Hussein Obama’s full name, he might be doing better.  Meanwhile, Iraqis protest a new status of forces agreement that will permit U.S. troops to remain in that f—ked-up country.

  47. 2012 Tuesday: In the runup to Election Day, both GOP presidential nominee and Democrat President Barack Obama are stumping through battleground states.  Obama is in Florida blasting his opponent as lacking a foreign policy for modern times while Romney in Nevada says that ‘attacks on him’ are not an agenda for the American people.  Meanwhile, all but forgotten, four fringe party candidates debate one another with Larry King serving as moderator.
  48. 2013 Wednesday: Now that the world knows that the National Security Agency under the control of President Barack Hussein Obama has been scooping up metadata from around the world including our NATO allies, German Chancellor Angela Merkel lodges a formal protest against the U.S. government for committing heinous acts such as this.   Meanwhile, another foreign ally, Pakistani President Nawaz Sharif begs the Obama administration to end ongoing drone strikes that are killing all sorts of innocent people.  Things are rough for Barack Hussein.  Finally, the U.S. extends the deadline to sign up for Obamacare or face PENALTIES.
  49. 2014 Thursday: North Korea releases one of three American captives as a show of ‘niceness’ to the world- 56-year-old Jeffrey Fowie, who left a Bible in a sailor’s club (how did you do this?) while he was visiting the lovely country.  The North Koreans said this was ‘illegal as hell.’  They still hold Matthew Miller and Kenneth Bae. 
  50. 2015 Friday: Benghazi committee investigating the assault on our embassy in that war-torn nation back in 2012 Republican chairman Trey Gowdy admits that ‘no added information regarding Hillary or Barack Obama’s mishandling of the tragic events that occurred on the anniversary of September 11.’   Meanwhile, the Obama administration asks Congress to back bankruptcy help for the forever-struggling Puerto Rico.
  51. 2016 Sunday: In Iraq, Turkish troops begin firing artillery onto ISIS positions in the war-ravaged city of Mosul as the Pentagon promises an increase in U.S. airstrikes on the positions held by the murderous human waste.   Elsewhere in Syria, a three-day ceasefire brings about no gains in humanitarian efforts to bring succor to the Syrian people.  Say it ain’t so.    
  52. 2017 Monday: Violent attacks continue in Afghanistan as out-of-control jihadis like the Taliban and their ISIS cousins launch suicide attacks on Afghan government troops and law enforcement.  At least 250 are slain in these monstrous attacks which tells us we should be employing the neutron bomb against jihadist positions and territories.   Elsewhere, following the deaths of four U.S. Special Forces soldiers in the African country of Niger- something of which very few seemed to have any knowledge- the U.S. Senate plans to review war authorizations used by presidents since September 11, 2001, to send U.S. troops around the world to combat terrorism.  Again, we stress, NO one knew where we have troops around the world, in more than 100 countries.  Why are they there?  What are they doing?  President Trump plans on ending this facet of the military-industrial complex scheme.
  53. 2018 Tuesday: In the first game of the 2018 World Series, the Boston Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers by a score of 8-4 at Fenway Park.   Elsewhere, Austrian scientists report that for the first time, microplastics have been discovered in the stools of human beings.   Elsewhere, the United Nations reports that more than half of Yemen’s population is facing famine due to the Houthi rebels and their Iranian backers war.  The Saudis and other Arab coalition partners are trying to drive the Iranian scum out of the poorest Arab country in the world.   Meanwhile, as the mid-term elections draw closer, Democratic challenger for governor of Georgia- Stacey Abrams- continues whining about VOTER SUPPRESSION AND INTIMIDATION.  Democrats are the ones who suppress votes and intimidate voters, Stacey so shut the hell up.
  54. 2019 Wednesday:  As the Democrats move their impeachment hearings for President Donald J. Trump into the bowels of the House into the SCIF- sensitive compartment information facility, a mob of Republican lawmakers- locked out of the hearings- storm the room driving House Intel chairman Adam “Pencil-Neck” Schiff into a fit of anger.  The Democrats are trying to use Star Chamber activities to go after Trump and thankfully, the GOP is going to have none of it.   Elsewhere, in Game 2 of the 2019 World Series, the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 12-3 in Houston.  Meanwhile, Spain decides to remove the remains of the nation’s savior- Generalissimo Francisco “El Caudillo” Franco- from the National Mausoleum and dump them somewhere else.  Many leftists whine that like Hitler and Mussolini, Franco should have no respect but were it not for him, Spain would have ended up like the Soviet Union.  God bless you, El Caudillo!
  55. 2020 Friday: Following last night’s final debate between President Donald J. Trump and former vice president “Pro-China Joe” Biden, most viewers, and critics favor Trump for the victory and not Obama’s No. 2.  Piers Morgan, not a big fan of the president, said that President Trump ‘exposed Biden’s flaws.’  Speaking of the Biden-Harris ticket, Sen. Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is pushing Mr. Biden to make him the next secretary of labor.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State is in Asia, strengthening relationships between our allies there and building up our joint defenses against the Chi-Coms.   In addition to that, the U.S. inks a deal with which to strengthen families around the world and to stop the avalanche of abortions across the planet.  We cannot abort our future.   Finally, the Trump administration slaps new sanctions on Iranian companies involved in trying to sway our elections. 
  56. 2020 Friday A: Pfizer is testing a COVID-19 vaccine on teens and pre-teens, hoping to have something with which, the young people can be inoculated against the Chinese virus so schools and sports can return to normal.  However, we also hear that unless we can bring the end of COVID-19 to the planet and soon, our Social Security and Medicare could be depleted by 2030 or sooner due to lost taxes from workers.  This is the snowball effect a pandemic such as this can cause the nation.  We must reopen and soon and life must return to normal.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration announces that Sudan will soon be normalizing relations with Israel putting yet more pressure on the Iranians and the Palestinians to make peace.  NO wonder Iran is trying to push American voters to vote for their preferred candidate, “Pro-China Joe” Biden.
  57. 2020 Friday B: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 42,006,178 confirmed cases, +1,354,101, 1,140,759, confirmed deaths, +18,723, and 28,423,572 confirmed recoveries, +25,461,512.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 8,568,527 confirmed cases, up 84,435 from yesterday’s reporting, 227,059 confirmed deaths, UP 912, and 5,376,236 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,421.  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: 897,543 confirmed cases, 17,276 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,478 confirmed cases, 206 confirmed deaths, and 11,232 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 105,404 confirmed cases, 2,390 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 308,840 confirmed cases, 2,329 confirmed deaths, and 290,130 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: Idaho- currently, they have 56,924 confirmed cases, 560 confirmed deaths, and 27,221 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Brad Little, for providing us with the full sets of numbers.
  58. 2020 Friday C: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,335.57, DOWN 28.09 points (+0.99%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,548.28, UP 42.28 points (+0.37%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,465.39, UP 11.90 points (+0.034%).  Price of GOLD: $1,903.40 per troy oz., -1.80 (-0.09%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.70 per troy oz., +0.025 (+0.10%).  Price of PLATINUM: $908.60 per troy oz., +1.90 (+0.21%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,398.60 per troy oz., +2.70 (+0.11%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.14 per #, +0.014 (+0.45%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.78, -0.07 (-0.18%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.68 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.78 Afghan afghani.
  59. 2020 Friday D: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions #1601 Draw tonight with a $97 million jackpot: 18, 34, 44, 60, 69, and Mega 22.  The highest winners were 29 people who had four numbers for a prize of $573 apiece.  Meanwhile, in Game 3 of the 2020 World Series, the Dodgers beat the Tampa Bay Rays by a final score of 6-2, taking a 2-1 Series lead.
  60. 2020 Friday E: Communist China continues threatening the United States that IF the U.S. sells arms to Taiwan, war could be on the horizon.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin cannot rule out a Chi-Com-Russia alliance in a war against the United States.    Elsewhere, Fox News reports that the Hunter Biden laptop documents don’t show ‘clear ties to “Pro-China Joe” Biden’ but ‘tough questions still remain.’  Viewership for the 2nd (actually the 3rd) Trump-Biden debate dropped to 63 million.  Finally, the Department of Justice reports that incarceration rates for blacks and Hispanics has ‘nosedived.’
  61. 2020 Friday F:  We haven’t a clue as to what the Chi-Coms, their patsy “Pro-China Joe” Biden, his son, Hunter, and the Democratic Party is up to today, so stick around and encounter their wrongdoings with us.  We will keep you posted.  Please, stick around to find out today’s Mega-Millions lottery numbers, too.

296. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2020

U. 1942 Thursday: The first troop ships sail out of Scotland, bound for Vichy French territory in Algeria and at the port city of Oran. The Allies were underway with driving the Axis out of North Africa. On the Eastern Front, fighting in Stalingrad continues to rage as the Germans are in a position to seize the Red October and Barricades factories while the other tractor factory also is within their grasp. According to historian Geoffrey Jukes, the toll is horrendous with the Germans losing one full division every five days or less while Russian units- 37th Guards, 308th and 193rd Infantry Divisions of the 82nd Army could field little more than two hundred men.

  61. 2020 Thursday B: Facebook’s little Mark Zuckerberg and his clone Jack Dorsey at Twitter (aka ‘Shitter’) receive subpoenas to appear before the Senate and to answer questions as to why they are such left-wing POS who believe they can control the flow of information.  They have allowed every hateful piece of disinformation on President Donald J.

  66. 2020 Thursday G: The final presidential debate is in the books and it was a good one.  We must say to Kristen Welker- the moderator- that she did a stellar job and that that POS Chris Wallace could learn much from her.  Both men held their own, loads of information was delivered, and it is up to everyone to determine whom they believe to be more truthful and whom they believe to be the winner.  We will find out on November 3.

Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, top U.S. diplomat (and Trump-hater) William Taylor tells a hushed House Intelligence Committee chaired by the inbred Adam Schiff, D-CA, that ‘Trump held up $391 million in military aid to the beleaguered nation until they dug up dirt on his political rival “Pro-China Joe” Biden via finishing the investigation into the former vice president’s son, Hunter,’ who was being paid billions of dollars for a no-show job.   One year later, we would discover that this was BS as was much the rest of the ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ scam.
  54. 2020 Wednesday: The Pentagon announced today that the best way to counter Chi-Com, Russian, and other incursions into U.S. security is through the maintenance of international alliances.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State designates six communist Chinese media companies as ‘missions’ doing the bidding of their Beijing bosses.  Elsewhere, the pope, the worst in modern times, endorses same-sex civil unions in a new documentary.  How about allowing priests to get married, there, Pontiff? 
  55. 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. Michael Flynn, the man the Democrats have never stopped trying to destroy, says he supports Congressman Doug Collins in Georgia to the U.S. Senate.
  56. 2020 Wednesday B: Back to the Chi-Coms and their Wuhan Virus pandemic, here are the latest stats: 40,652,097 confirmed cases, UP by 358,051 cases, 1,122,036 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,519 deaths, and 27,782,060 confirmed recoveries, UP by 17,408 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 8,425,179 confirmed cases, UP by 62,998 new cases, 225,266 confirmed deaths, UP by 958 new deaths, and 5,342,096 confirmed recoveries, UP by 16,972 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  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.
  57. 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.
  58. 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%).  The price of GOLD is $1,924.30 per troy oz., -5.20 (-0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $25.06 per troy ounce, -0.181 (-0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $890.10 per troy oz, -3.80 (-0.43%) while the price of COPPER is $3.18 per pound, -0.0145 (-0.45%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,427.50 per troy oz, +9.80 (+0.41%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $39.88 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.37%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.65 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.15.
  59. 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.
  60. 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.
