Elsewhere, South Korea announces that the United States and North Korea will hold a second summit very soon. Finally, Turkey demands the TRUTH from the Saudis as to what happened to Saudi American journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Saudi intel officers murdered him in their embassy and then dismembered him. No one knows where his remains lie.
- 2019 Tuesday: The Democrats expand the ever-evolving impeachment inquiry into President Trump by demanding still more records, this time sending subpoenas to the Pentagon and Budget portions of the Executive Branch. Fishing expedition to be sure. Meanwhile, a judge gives President Trump a stay in the orders that he produce his tax records so the Democrats can scrutinize them as they search for Russian connections. Finally, the Democrats scramble as they seek ways to ‘protect the so-called whistleblower’s identity from Trump’s allies.’ They fear something might happen to the POS…
- 2020 Thursday: The Committee on Presidential Debates announces the next one is going to be VIRTUAL over fears of the president having had the Chi-Vi. President Trump- who is slated to host the Rush Limbaugh Show tomorrow all three hours- says, ‘hell, no, because “Pro-China Joe” Biden will be using a teleprompter, will have notes, and for sure an earpiece’ as many suspect he did in their first meeting. The president will instead hold a BIG CAMPAIGN RALLY while the Biden campaign is searching for something to do in place of the now defunct virtual debate. Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, 34 now test positive at the White House with an unnamed security official reported to be ‘gravely ill.’ The Chi-Coms strike yet again.
- 2020 Thursday A: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they continue threatening WAR if the United States and Taiwan return to normalized relations which was the case before the world committed the egregious error of welcoming the communist thug nation in the United Nations, the World Health Organization, and began enriching the murderous regime in Beijing by relocating businesses and industries there. We say, let the Chi-Coms continue threatening war, this if for what GOD made the neutron bomb.
- 2020 Thursday B: Left-wing media blasts Vice President Mike Pence for having ‘mansplained’ several topics to the ever angry and highly unattractive Sen. Kamala Harris, the VP nominee on the Democratic Party side. Men can never win in this era of identity politics but it was clear to most that Kooky Kamala was on the defensive throughout the 90-minute debate. Speaking of the Democrats, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says that ‘Democrats will hold a conference call on Friday in which, they will discuss the 25th Amendment.’ They fear that President Trump is somehow compromised by good health, having kicked the Chi-Vi. Madam Moron Speaker, we would rather have our president in good health than kowtowing to a senile, mumbling, stumbling loser such as you. Shut up!
- 2020 Thursday C: The FBI reports the arrest of five Michigan men and one from Delaware on charges of conspiracy to kidnap despotic Governor Gretchen Whitmer who rules her state as though she is a Maoist dictator. While we don’t approve the kidnapping of anyone, something is wrong in that state, especially if the self-proclaimed freedom fighter group ANTIFA is not on scene doing battle with her regime. Says a lot about those phonies. Speaking of Antifa, the leading mayoral candidate seeking to take Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler’s job, uh, what’s her name, again reiterates past comments: “I AM ANTIFA.” Yikes. Another winner of mayor, Seattle’s Jenny Durkan encourages her citizens to ‘vote like their lives depend on it.’ They sure as heck do, we must oust every entrenched and hopeful communist in this nation if we are to save it! Vote out every Democrat and vote in every Republican on November 3!
- 2020 Thursday D: We mentioned “Lemon-sucking” Nancy Pelosi earlier in our reportage of the day’s events and it is important to note that the woman whose choppers might fall out of her mouth at any instant is the ONLY person standing in the way of Chi-Vi relief. Although she alluded that she ‘might be favorable to helping U.S. airlines,’ she won’t indulge President Donald J. Trump’s desire to send out $1,200 relief checks to every U.S. citizen. No, like many Democrats- especially in California, Democrats want to send relief checks to illegal frigging aliens! This is insane. People call your congressional representatives and tell them to persuade the senile speaker of the House to set aside partisan politics and to do the right thing for the American people!
- 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: 36,349,500 confirmed cases, +350,894, 1,058,698, confirmed deaths, +5,962, and 25,292,503 confirmed recoveries, +237,016.

Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 285,336 confirmed cases, 1,864 confirmed deaths, and 221,571 confirmed recoveries.
- 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: 843,732 confirmed cases, 16,361 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,196 confirmed cases, 164 confirmed deaths, and 10,604 confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 95,500 confirmed cases, 2,274 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let’s look at one other state: North Carolina- currently, they have 225,397 confirmed cases, 3,722 confirmed deaths, but no mention confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Ray Cooper for behaving like your typical Democrat POS and staying mum on the recoveries.
- 2020 Thursday G: We had a FAIRLY BIG UPSWING in the markets today. Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,425.51, UP 122.05 points (+0.43%). Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ: 11,420.98, UP 56.38 points (+0.50%). Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,446.83, UP 27.38 points (+0.80%). Price of GOLD: $1,900.20 per troy oz., +5.10 (+0.27%) Here is the price of SILVER: $24.00 per troy oz., +0.119 (+0.50%). Price of PLATINUM: $869.60 per troy oz., +5.00 (+0.65%). Price of PALLADIUM: $2,403.00 per troy oz., +20.90 (+0.88%). Here is the price of COPPER: $3.04 per #, -0.0015 (-0.05%). Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.29, +0.10 (+0.24%). Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros. Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.64 Taiwanese dollars.
- 2020 Thursday H: Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is (1) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-1) @ the Chicago Bears (3-1) the Bears beat the Bucs 20-19, going to 4-1 while the Bucs dropped to 3-2. Meanwhile, White House doctors inform President Trump that since he is doing so well in vanquishing the Chi-Vi Xi Jinping sent our way, he can begin making public appearances this weekend. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues going berserk. She needs to be committed to a mental hospital…

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY OCTOBER 08, 2020
PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Thursday, October 08, 2020:
[i] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years. Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.
[ii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018. Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.
[iii] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015. We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.
[iv] We find it fascinating how ALL defenders of Islam claim it to be a ‘religion of peace.’ It is NO religion of peace, it is one of violence, one in which, if disbelievers or nonbelievers criticize it, Muslims are obligated to commit acts of violence upon them. We believe ALL of Islam must undergo a Reformation like other modern-day peaceful religions have. It is time for the followers of Allah to modernize and become civilized. Editor’s note.
[v] FUCK the unpatriotic protesters. They are a bunch of pond scum.
