Elsewhere, following President Donald J.

- 2020 Wednesday: Word comes out today that Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York is going to hit every out-of-state medical professional who answered his call to come help the Empire State through its (self-imposed) COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with state income taxes. Currently, there are 3,755,341 confirmed cases of Kung Flu worldwide, 263,831 confirmed deaths, and 1,245,415 confirmed recoveries. Thank you, communist China.

- 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens. Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands. We must secure our borders.
- 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe. Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State. Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines. In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts? Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this? Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii] Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
- 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC. The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does. Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants. Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix] Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19. Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
- 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.” The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong. What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator? Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’ Boy, oh, boy. In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’ Uh, okay.
- 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now. U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’ WTF? That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud? Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill. Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States. God bless you, governor.
- 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel. Awesome. Will the next Black Panther be a white actor?
- 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries. The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms. Really?
- 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers. We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world. In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account. WTF? Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason. Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’ An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
- 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection. However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment. Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’ Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations. We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it?
- 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur. In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future. We hope she is out next week. NO MORE RINOS. In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’ What a joke. This dingbat should be in prison. In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.” There you go.
- 2021 Thursday P: Political News III– A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them. Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’ F— you. Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison. Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S. Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol. Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed. The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.

Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.” Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019. This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here. Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.
