V. 1942 Saturday: The Germans continue pressing their attacks on the Soviet defenders in the smoldering city of Stalingrad. They have cut the city into pockets but the Red Army and militia units continue clinging to the crossings on the Volga River. The Luftwaffe continues its attacks across the city continuing to reduce it to rubble, which means the underground is contested as much as what’s left above ground. German artillery continues hammering Russian supply boats crisscrossing the Volga River. Meanwhile, Lt. Gen. Friedrich Paulus continues preparing the decisive hammer blow he plans to drop on the 14th.

Bowe Bergdahl.  Finally, more than 120 anti-Islam protesters gathered outside a Phoenix, Arizona, mosque.  Allah akbar!
  58. 2016 Monday: House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, delivers what he believes to be a death blow to the Trump campaign by informing the world he ‘will no longer defend it.’  This comes after the Friday disclosure of an Access Hollywood tape in which, candidate Donald Trump is heard telling Billy Bush about how being ‘rich and powerful allows him to get away with kissing and groping women.’  We also learn today that Hillary Clinton’s lead over the struggling Trump has risen to double digits.  Wow.  It looks like Mrs. Clinton is going to win BIG on Election Day!  Finally, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg calls the U.S. National Anthem protests “dumb and disrespectful” for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players to protest racial inequality by refusing to stand for the flag and the anthem.  Listen, dummies, put your money where your mouths are; otherwise, shut up, and Love It or Leave It!  It’s time for that motto to return…
  59. 2017 Tuesday: In California, as out-of-control wildfires rage, the death toll hits at least 17 across Napa and Sonoma Counties.  Due to forest mismanagement and long-term neglect by Democrats and their environmentalist backers, the state is burning up.  It is horrifying as people, plants, and animals continue dying.  Meanwhile, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt signs the proposal that will withdraw the United States from Barack Hussein Obama’s Clean Power Act.  Good.  Slash those regulations.  Finally, NFL owners discuss making their players stand for the National Anthem seeing that viewership, both on TV and in the stadiums, is at record lows.
  60. 2018 Wednesday:  Cat 4 Hurricane Matthew slams into the Florida and Georgia coastlines as it heads for the Carolinas.  With winds topping 155 MPH, people have evacuated but still, at least have died in mishaps related to the raging tempest.  Speaking of crappy weather, the United Nations issues a report that says ‘Extreme Weather’ has cost more than $2.9 trillion over the past 20 years.  Environmentalists around the planet are doing the jig in the streets, hoping they can force a world socialist government down the throats of all people.   Elsewhere, the DOW Jones Industrial Average drops more than 800 points as tech stocks crash.
  61. 2019 Thursday: As the Turkish army’s offensive into northern Syria gets underway, civilians find themselves under withering fire and forced to flee, many of them being killed by the angry Turks.   The former Ottoman Empire announces it wants to ‘establish a safe zone’ along its border and that means more than half-a-million Syrian Kurds must vacate or face punitive measures.   Elsewhere, to the delight of anti-Trumpists everywhere, two of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s associates, Lev Parmas and Igor Fruman are taken into custody at Dulles International Airport for doing ‘bad things on behalf of the Ukraine and President Donald J. Trump.’  Fake news folks, fake news.  Finally, the estate of Prince slams the Trump campaign for using “Purple Rain” at a rally in Minnesota.  Wah, wah, and wah!
  62. 2020 Saturday: In Pennsylvania, a state where voter fraud appears is going to be rampant, a judge tosses a case launched by the Trump administration to halt the crooked mailing of mail-in ballots to every ‘registered citizen.’  Meanwhile, former Kansas senator and GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole says the ‘Presidential Debate Commission is stacked against Donald Trump and is very unfair.’  Speaking of Trump, he held a peaceful protest at the White House today while ever-senile “Pro-China Joe” Biden is working at recapturing Michigan from the GOP.   Elsewhere, the North Koreans roll out what has been called a ‘monster ICBM’ during their latest military parade but most believe it is little more than trickery.  If it is real, it will go farther and carry a far larger warhead or series of warheads than heretofore the North Koreans could.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi refuses the latest Trump administration Chi-Vi relief bill, demanding the one she wants that will cost American taxpayers more than a trillion dollars.  WTF is wrong with this babbling lunatic, they must add House speakers to the 25th Amendment so they can send her into much-needed retirement in North Korea.
  63. 2020 Saturday A: In New York City, anti-Semitic Mayor Bill Di Blasio continues his ‘war on Jews’ by threatening to arrest them if they break his draconian COVID-19 restrictions.  What’s next, ‘Mr. Worst Mayor in the Country?’  Are you going to require ALL Jews within the city sew yellow stars of David on their clothes so that your secret police can identify them easier?
  64. 2020 B: The Chi-Coms are angry today, threatening WAR if the U.S. continues sailing through the South China Sea where they have built islands atop atolls and rock outcroppings and then militarized them to threaten fellow Southeast Asian nations.  The U.S. guided missile destroyer USS John McCain traversed the area which set the Chi-Coms to threatening all manner of retaliation.  Folks, the Chi-Coms are WHY God gave us the neutron bomb.  Let’s use it and show them who’s boss.  It’s bad enough they infected the world with a pandemic but to talk crap to the U.S. over the United States Navy sailing through international waters is BS.
  65. 2020 Saturday  C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 37,019,381 confirmed cases, +313,168, 1,069,953, confirmed deaths, +5,533, and 25,711,805 confirmed recoveries, 241,208.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,786,164 confirmed cases, UP 28,255 from yesterday’s reporting, 217,319 confirmed deaths, UP 329, and 5,010,292 confirmed recoveries, UP 23,136.  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: 851,399 confirmed cases, 16,506 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 13,461 confirmed cases, 168 confirmed deaths, and 10,713 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 96,839 confirmed cases, 2,288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Delaware- currently, they have 21,998 confirmed cases, 653 confirmed deaths, and 11,338 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor John Carney for being an honest Democratic politician- thank you.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 289,875 confirmed cases, 1,941 confirmed deaths, and 225,718 confirmed recoveries.
  66. 2020 Saturday D:  Here are the winning numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3498: 03, 07, 10, 22, 41, and Mega 21; Jackpot- $16 million.  (The highest winners were three people who had five numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $11,104 apiece).  Here are the numbers for the Powerball, Draw #784: 05, 18, 23, 40, 50, and Power 18.  Highest winners were 28 people who had 4 numbers for a prize of $435 apiece).
