  54. 2020 Monday B: Statistics for shootings in Chicago over the weekend are in: 71 people shot and 12 dead.  In New York City, 30 people were shot over the weekend with 10 dead.  Where are Black Lives Matter?  Nowhere because BLM is little more than a left-wing hate group and not a group determined to protect black Americans from violence. 
  55. 2020 Monday C: St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner- a political hack of the highest degree- filed charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey for having ‘brandished their weapons in an unlawful manner at PEACEFUL PROTESTERS’ threatening to burn down their home, murder, and rape them, and kill their dog.  This is what happens when former Nazi George Soros buys state attorneys general , secretaries of state, and district attorneys at all levels.  We must stop this POS from undermining the country.
  56. 2021 Tuesday: This looks like it’s going to be a busy week what with the Joestapo going door to door to give people their ‘shots.’  F**k them.

  53. 2016 Thursday: In Monterey, Mexico, a riot breaks out between inmates of two drug cartels which leaves at least 52 dead and countless more injured.  Meanwhile, six Democratic candidates seeking the nomination of their party appear on the party’s sixth debate stage.  This would be Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley.  Protesters demanding a $15 hour minimum wage cause problems outside the site.

  55. 2018 Sunday: A Russian airliner crashes southwest of Moscow, killing all 71 on board.  Many suspect terrorism.  The body count is rising in the region as Russians, Syrians, Iranians, Turks, and Israelis are battling jihadists and one another in the area.  It is what it is, folks, as long as the Iranians, Russians, and Turks are meddling in Syria, there will never be peace.  Elsewhere, in the U.S., New York City prosecutors are out on strike protesting federal ICE agents picking up criminal illegal aliens at the Bronx Courthouse.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: The New Hampshire primary occurs on this date and it appears that the battle is between Princess Pete and Commie Bernie with the Schnoz, Amy Klobuchar hanging in third place although no one knows for sure at this time.  Joe Biden, however, has already bolted for South Carolina, demonstrating he knows he is going to lose here, too.  Meanwhile, an audio tape of Mike Bloomberg speaking from six years ago about busting minorities and sending them to jail for pot possession hits the scene.  My, my, my! Update: with 78% of the vote in, Fox News Channel calls it thus: Sen. Bernie Sanders: 25.7%; Pete Buttigieg: 24.4%; Amy Klobuchar: 19.9%; Elizabeth Warren: 9.4%; Joe Biden: 8.4%; Tom Steyer: 3.6%; Tulsi Gabbard: 3.2%; Andrew Yang: 2.9%; Michael Bennett and Deval Patrick: 0.  Andrew Yang was the first to toss in the towel within moments followed by Michael Bennett within the first 30 minutes;  Tom Steyer tossed in the towel then pulled it back, why?  No one knows…Elsewhere, the death toll from the Chinese Virus in communist China has hit 1,000 fatalities what with 103 in a single day in Hubei Province.  A year later, this will be NOTHING…
  58. 2021 Thursday: DAY 23 OF THE BIDEN REGIME.  Volkswagen is going to team up with Microsoft to create the necessary software with which to create self-driving cars.   Speaking of automobile issues, Texas authorities are cleaning up a massive pileup of cars and trucks on an icy stretch of the highway.  The pileup occurred near Fort Worth, Texas.  Elsewhere, Best Buy announces it’s going to lay off an undisclosed number of its employees in brick-and-mortar stores due to the Chi-Com Virus having driven business more online than in person.  Meanwhile, 793,000 Americans file for initial jobless benefits, down 19,000 from the week before.  Still not good, however.  Finally, thanks to the people behind Joe Biden, gas prices have gone up 18-percent as the War on Domestic Energy Production gets underway.  Thank you, “Chi-Com Joe.”
  59. 2021 Thursday A: Impeach #45 II continues in the U.S. Senate.  It appears that Democrats prosecuting the FORMER president believe that if they continue hammering the same points over and over and over and over that somehow, it is going to drive an increasing number of inattentive GOP senators to vote to convict.  Not so.  Chef Lilah said in her Twitter feed today that Congressman Jamie Raskin’s own daddy avoided doing a stretch in federal prison over his collusion with Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers back in the 1970s.  She guesses what was good for daddy is not good for President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, Trump adviser Jason Miller shares his confidence that Trump’s attorneys can dismantle the Democrats’ BS arguments with ease.   In the same vein, Senator Lindsey Graham says he believes more GOP senators are going to vote to acquit after hearing the sobbing testimony of Democrat prosecutors such as mob boss David Cicilline, the blubbering Jamie Raskin, and that POS of fecal matter, Teddy Lieu.  Add to that the Chi-Com spy Eric Swalwell and one can see the rogue’s gallery of dimwits on display.  Doesn’t say much about the people who elect these bedbugs to office now does it.
  60. 2021 Thursday B: In Portland, Oregon, local cops say they were successful in driving away the left-wing Antifa and BLM mobs from burning down their very own police union headquarters.  Elsewhere, Fox News Channel files suit to dismiss the bogus lawsuit launched against the network by the election-stealing software company (allegedly) Smartmatic.  We expect it to be successful and that Smartmatic will lose.  Meanwhile, Telegram becomes the most popular downloaded social media app.  Next, a $4.5 million lawsuit has just dropped on the head of Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.  Owners of the Town Talk Diner and Gastro Pub in Minneapolis filed suit after mobs attacked their business night after night and burned it down during the summertime riots in which, Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs targeted their business and NO Minneapolis Police Department officers ever showed up to protect it.  We expect loads more lawsuits are going to drop atop these left-wing mayors and governors.  Finally, the New York Stock Exchange announces that if Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s tax plan goes into effect, they will be leaving the Empire State.  Good for you!
  61. 2021 Thursday C: It appears that Cancel Culture is trying to erase Western Tradition so that it can supplant it with Marxism.  We won’t allow that to happen.  Elsewhere, a recent study into the reporting of statistics related the Chinese Virus are entirely wrong.  The study suggests that the fatality numbers connected to the Beijing Bug include BOTH those who died FROM the virus and those who died WITH the virus.  If statistics were honest, the numbers would fall from the nearly 2,400,000 deaths to a true figure of 35,000 deaths.  However, since the virus serves left-wing political purposes, the numbers are inflated and remain inflated.  Sad.  Meanwhile, federal health authorities are warning medical workers to be on the lookout for ersatz N-95 masks.  Finally, Tokyo Olympics boss Yoshiro Mori finds himself forced to resign over a comment he made in which, he said, ‘women talk too much.’  Gee, no one can exercise an opinion anymore?  Wah, wah, wah!
  62. 2021 Thursday D: Tom Fitton shares information numerous Chi-Com-loving professors in the United States are receiving funding for various research projects and then transferring both the research and American tax dollars back to the communists in Beijing.  Under the Trump administration, many of these Chi-Com sleepers were rooted and booted whereas now, under the ‘Joe Biden administration,’ Chi-Coms ain’t going nowhere.  Speaking of this, a mumbling Joe Biden now admits that yes indeed, the Chinese ARE going to eat our lunches.’  Add to that the fact that since the teachers unions have bullied Chi-Com Joe, the Biden administration is now going to rely on whatever the CDC says about whether schools can reopen or not.  NOT GOOD, Joe, people are becoming angrier by the moment.  Elsewhere, illegal alien border crossings into the U.S. are more than double one year ago.  We keep saying, “Lay in minefields!” 
  63. 2021 Thursday H: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 107,458,667 confirmed cases, +291,882, 2,357,475, confirmed deaths, +9,054, and 60,136,468 confirmed recoveries, +228,082.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,539,217 confirmed cases, up 53,415 from yesterday’s reporting, 473,223 confirmed deaths, DOWN 811 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE- in the White House 22 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 143,828 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  64. 2021 Thursday I: 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: 3,449,934 confirmed cases, 45,456 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,584 confirmed cases, 423 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 328,264 confirmed cases, 4,675 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Tennessee: currently, they have 752,033 confirmed cases, 10,812 confirmed deaths, and 716,136 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 709,729 confirmed cases, 5,257 confirmed deaths, and 635,960 confirmed recoveries.    For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Italy: currently, they have 2,668,266 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 92,338 confirmed deaths, and 2,165,817 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  Either that or he’s too stupid to be governor, perhaps his lower IQ brother Chris could do the job?
  65. 2021 Thursday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,430.70, DOWN 7.10 points (-0.023%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,025.77, UP 53.24 points (+0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,916.38, UP 6.50 points (+0.17%).  The price of GOLD is $1,826.70 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.05 per troy ounce, -0.00 (-0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,243.00 per troy oz, -4.00 (-0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $3.78 per pound, +0.01 (+0.23%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,353.50 per troy oz, +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $57.95 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.50%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 1,400.00 Myanmar Kyat.
  66. 2021 Thursday K: After the Biden administration suggested something that sounds extremely Stalinist, namely prohibiting travel to Florida because Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, won’t kotow to the new oppressive administration, Governor DeSantis says it’s a load of crap seeing as how the Biden administration could give a hoot about hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens flooding the country whom NO one is monitoring for the Chinese Virus.  Florida has remained open from the earliest days of the Wuhan Flu and its cases are not as bad as say, California and New York.  Still, Bill Gates and Dr. Tony “Three Masks and Googles” Fauci are conspiring to find ways to topple DeSantis at best or to force him in line at worst.   Look for other Stalinist measures to follow suit.  Meanwhile, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene introduces a bill with which to prohibit federal funds being used for gun control measures.
