  64. 2020 Tuesday F: President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney- the former mayor of New York City when it was the greatest metropolis on the planet- Rudy Giuliani informs Greg Kelly of Newsmax that he and the former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Keric handed over a copy of Hunter Biden’s laptop to law enforcement officials in Delaware for investigation.  The laptop contains numerous images of the former vice president’s son engaged in sexual acts with minors identified to be 14-years-old or younger and that as an officer of the court, HAD he not turned in the laptop to law enforcement authorities, he would be guilty of a felony.

The imam at the mosque posted a diatribe railing against the French teacher and that was it for the French law enforcement authorities. Round them up and deport them.
  67. 2020 Tuesday I: We encourage everyone to stick around to find out with us what the Chi-Com puppet-masters and their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to stick around today so and find out with us; we will keep the world apprised of their nefarious wrongdoings…

  61. 2020 Thursday: Fallout from the New York Post story on Hunter Biden’s laptop and incriminating email evidence contained within the hard drive demonstrate that there was no reason to impeach President Donald J. Trump because what the Dems were accusing of him of doing was exactly what then- and- former Vice President Joe Biden, son Hunter, and brother and sister-in-law were engaged in doing: peddling influence for humongous quantities of dollars, tens of billions of dollars.  Besides Ukraine, we also learn that Hunter Biden was schmoozing with the Chi-Coms in order to raise still more hundreds of billions of dollars for his mumbling, stumbling daddy.  What makes it even more true is the amount of energy left-leaning social media moguls and their platforms, most notably Facebook and the corrupt Twitter, are devoting to covering up, censoring, and hiding away from the American people.  Folks, this election is now more than important than ever which is why we have but one choice for which to vote on November 3: Donald J. Trump and the GOP.  From the presidency to dogcatcher, vote STRAIGHT GOP.   
  62. 2020 Thursday A: In yet another attempt to sway the election, Reuters/Ipsos poll says that ‘last minute voters tend to break for Biden over Trump’ while the Wall Street Journal reports that “Pro-China Joe” Biden has a national lead of 11 points over his opponent, President Donald J. Trump.’  We shall see.  An employee at the New York Times says, however, that ‘not everything is looking good for “Pro-China Joe” which we take to mean IF the Hunter Biden laptop story gets to the masses, he’s toast.   Regarding the covering up of the Hunter Biden laptop story, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says- regarding the censorship of the story- that ‘we might have handled it better.’   Yeah, like allowing the free flow of speech, you left-wing, Chi-Com-loving POS.   Regarding “Beijing Biden,” he has a new campaign ad featuring George Floyd’s sister.  Big whoop.
  63. 2020 Thursday B: Before leaving for a MASSIVE RALLY in Greenville, North Carolina, President Donald J. Trump tells reporters that ‘Gov. Andrew Cuomo is little more than a thug and that he himself has ruined the Empire State.’  New York citizens, recall and remove this moron, please, you have a lovely state but if he and NYC Mayor Bill “I’m a Commie” Di Blasio maintain their plan NOT to reopen Broadway until July 2021, you can kiss the city goodbye forever…speaking of loony tunes Democrats, actress Julia Louise Dreyfus calls for a BOYCOTT against the network that made her famous, NBC, for hosting a townhall with President Donald J. Trump while at the same time on ABC- we believe- there is going to be a “Pro-China Joe” Biden debate (although his is half as long as his opponents.  Question: will anyone possess the balls to ask Biden about ‘court packing’ much less about his drug-addled son, Hunter’s activities of enriching the family while using his father’s name as collateral?  That would be something!) 
  64. 2020 Thursday C: President Donald J. Trump is encouraging the U.S. Senate to take a BIGGER Chi-Vi relief bill but U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says he ‘doubts any movement will occur until after the election’ even though Democrat House members are begging- imploring senile House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to make a deal, even the lower deal because their constituents- as well as their electoral chances- are in a bad way even though Madam Pelosi barked at Wolf Blitzer yesterday that ‘WE FEED THEM, YOU DON’T WOLF, WE FEED THEM.’  Wow, Marie Antoinette to be sure…
  65. 2020 Thursday D: Thursday Night Football’s game is between (1) Kansas City Chiefs, 32 (4-1) @ Buffalo Bills, 16 (4-1). POSTPONED UNTIL Monday, October 19, 2020.
  66. 2020 Thursday E: 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: 38,756,289 confirmed cases, +404,750, 1,095,216, confirmed deaths, +6,030, and 26,753,000 confirmed recoveries, +212,994.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 8,016,448 confirmed cases, up 62,382 from yesterday’s reporting, 220,164 confirmed deaths, UP 910, and 5,083,924 confirmed recoveries, UP 20,802.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 299,502 confirmed cases, 2,109 confirmed deaths, and 253,597 confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Thursday F: 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: 868,211 confirmed cases, 16,769 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,834 confirmed cases, 183 confirmed deaths, and 10,883 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 100,169 confirmed cases, 2,319 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: North Dakota- currently, they have 29,658 confirmed cases, 375 confirmed deaths, and 24,336 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Doug Burgum for providing all of us the numbers of recoveries- thank you.
  68. 2020 Thursday G: We had a DOWN DAY in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,494.20, DOWN 19.80 points (-0.069%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,713.87, DOWN 54.86 points (-0.47%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,483.34, DOWN 5.33 points (-0.15%).  Price of GOLD: $1,912.40 per troy oz., +3.50 (+0.18%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.44 per troy oz., +0.211 (+0.87%).  Price of PLATINUM: $870.10 per troy oz., +8.80 (+1.02%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,351.60 per troy oz., +2.50 (+0.11%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.09 per #, +0.009 (+0.29%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.97, +0.01 (+0.02%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.72 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.77 Taiwanese dollars.
  69. 2020 Thursday H: C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, who was set to host the second presidential debate until COVID-19 hit the president and terrified “Pro-China Joe” Biden into taking greater precautions such as demanding a VIRTUAL TOWNHALL DEBATE in which, he could have all manner of hidden aids, went on indefinite suspension now that we found out he lied to the FBI about his Twitter account being hacked.  As you recall, he was asking now-Trump hater Anthony Scaramucci for help in how to ‘deal with President Trump.’  Originally, he said he had ‘no clue’ as to how this message popped up, told the FBI his account ‘was hacked’ and then broke down today and said he lied.  Bon voyage, Mr. Scully, another one bites the dust.  Meanwhile, Judge Amy Coney Barrett concludes her final day of her confirmation hearings with flying colors.  
  70. 2020 Thursday I: Meanwhile Twitter and Facebook continue blocking any information connected to “Pro-China Joe” and son Hunter Biden’s tale of woe in which, Hunter was the bagman for his father’s growing empire of wealth.  Our accounts are all stifled because yesterday, Chef Lilah posted the link to Today in History which included a link to the story in the New York Post.  Jack Dorsey strikes again, boy would Joseph Goebbels love the guy!  Elsewhere, prior to President Donald J. Trump going to his townhall debate on NBC, he blasts them as ‘fake news.’
  71. 2020 Thursday J: Americans seeking first time jobless benefits rose to 898,000 from 840,000 the week before.  The nation has regained 11.3 million jobs, still a ways away from the 22 million we lost at the start of the Chi-Com Bat Flu pandemic.  The overall number of those receiving jobless benefits dropped 1.2 million to 10 million so things are on the mend which is why Nancy Pelosis is fighting to prevent passage of a Wuhan Flu relief bill.  Elsewhere, the California Supreme Court- after overturning Scott Peterson’s death sentence for the murder of his wife, Lacey, and their unborn son, and is considering overturning his conviction in the case and ordering a new trial.  Meanwhile on the other side of the world, jihadists attacked a convoy of Pakistani oil and gas workers in SW Baluchistan killing at least seven workers and eight members of Pakistan’s Frontier Corps.  The attack occurred near an Arabian Sea port the Chi-Coms are building to tie Central Asia closer to the thugs in Beijing via their Road and Belt Initiative.
  72. 2020 Thursday K: As everyone knows, the Chi-Coms and their flunkies- the Democratic Party- are up to no good, trying to steal the elections in November.  Stick around as we will keep you updated throughout the day…

Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx continue demanding of the American people which is insane.  Some places are not suffering whereas some Democratic strongholds such as New York state and New York City continue racking up the losses.  Meanwhile, the Stock Market finishes UP which is awesome with the DOW Jones Industrial Complex closing at 23,719.37, up 285.80 (1.22%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,153,57 up 62.67 (0.77%), and the S & P closed at 2,789.82, up 39.84 (1.45%).  Real Clear Politics claims that President Trump’s approval ratings are +47 and -52.  Polls also claim that Vice President “China Joe” Biden is leading President Trump.  Bulls**t.  Finally, Chef Itzi Nakamura of the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believes that when the COVID-19 mess ends, the United States must reimplement the Two-China Policy, recognizing Nationalist China, aka Taiwan, as an equal to the mainland if not the legitimate ruler of the mainland.
