W. 1942 Monday: In the battle for Stalingrad, as far as the Germans are concerned, the capture of the city is imminent. Elements of the Sixth Army are beginning to overrun the Red October and Barricades factories. Up and down the flanks, Axis allies are digging in. Immediately south and north of the city, Rumanians hold the lines. North of Stalingrad- past the Rumanian positions lie the Italians and then the Hungarians. None of them expect any fighting to occur in the coming winter months although they are aware that there’s a lot of Russian activity taking place east of the Volga River. They pass this information on.

  52. 2017 Thursday: Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House about a month after Hurricane Maria, described the situation in the island territory as “catastrophic”; Trump rated the White House response to the disaster as a “10.”
  53. 2018 Friday: Hollywood does it again: a reboot of the “Halloween” series of movies with Jaime Lee Curtis as the female lead grossing $77 million in its debut, the most of any film with a female lead over age 55.
  54. 2019 Saturday: Whack-job freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (birthname- Sandy Cortez, aka “Baby Evita,” aka “AOC, former NYC barmaid and self-proclaimed Marxist) endorses Democratic-Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders for president.   Meanwhile, rising energy prices in Chile force President Sebastian Pinera to declare a 15-day state of emergency so law enforcement and the military can crack down on widespread unrest and violent protests.  
  55. 2020 Monday: Recent polls continue suggesting that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to smoke President Donald J. Trump on Election Day.  Okay.  Other polls such as a recent NBC questionnaire proclaim that 52-percent of the American people compared to a measly 44-percent want to see Democrats control both houses of Congress.  Uh, okay.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, billionaire Robert F. Smith- the man who paid off the student loan debt of Morehouse College grads last year admitted to a scheme to cheat the IRS of taxes for 15 years.  He’s in trouble but his defense will be that the IRS is ‘racist.’  Meanwhile, DNI John Ratcliffe say there is ‘no intelligence’ behind the recent release of the Hunter Biden laptop showing it was another ‘Russian scheme’ as California Congressman Adam Schiff, Democrat, has been screeching over the weekend.  NO one is disputing what’s on the laptop is untrue; no, they are upset that it’s coming out now.  Remember: whatever the Democrats accuse others of doing is what they themselves are guilty of committing.
  56. 2020 Monday A: President Donald J. Trump hammers Dr. Tony Fauci and other ‘idiots’ for their Chi-Vi alarmism.  Unfortunately, the COVID-19 responses by many Democratic governors has destroyed the economies in their states.  We should have initiated a balanced approach.  We remember back in March how our medical professionals dismissed the disease whereas now, it is the destroyer of the world.   Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden attacks Hungary as being no better than the totalitarian regimes of Belarus which leads the Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó says that ‘Joe had better worry about his Ukrainian problem before bitching out Hungary.’   Speaking about “Pro-China Joe,” the Wall Street Journal- in an analysis of the former vice-president’s economic proposals- says that by 2030, household median income in the United States will fall by $6,500.  Don’t want it.  Elsewhere, White House Chief  Mark Meadows says that a bias among social media bigwigs does indeed exist and it leans to the DEMOCRATS because they are showing their hand when it comes to concealing and covering up Hunter Biden’s laptop.
  57. 2020 Monday B: U.S. Senate Republicans urge Pope Francis- the man in charge of the Deep Church- to hammer the Chi-Coms over their persecution of religious freedoms and for myriad human rights abuses.   Meanwhile, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi say they are close to a “COVID-19 relief deal.” Elsewhere, the New Yorker suspends Trump-hater writer and CNN’s chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin for having whipped out his dingus during a Zoom call between him, New Yorker staffers, and radio station WYNC Radio personnel.  The event occurred last week and the excuse the moron gave to various news outlets was that he ‘thought he was off-air.’  He gave no explanation as to WHY he yanked his pecker out in the first place.  We suspect he must be proud of his junk.  What a punk.  He should be terminated.  When will #MeToo allegations hit this piece of work? Update: we now hear that Mr. Toobin was doing more than sharing his dong with whomever he was intending to share it with- what a sick f**k- he must be close to Anthony Weiner.  He apologized to his wife, family, his bosses, and maybe even to God today.
  58. 2020 Monday C: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 40,272,089 confirmed cases, +468,527, 1,116,167, confirmed deaths, +4,453, and 27,558,672 confirmed recoveries, +204,959.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 8,293,975 confirmed cases, up 52,040 from yesterday’s reporting, 223,426 confirmed deaths, UP 548, and 5,255,335 confirmed recoveries, UP 25,350.  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: 878,346 confirmed cases, 16,979 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 14,183 confirmed cases, 187 confirmed deaths, and 11,044 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 102,403 confirmed cases, 2,339 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: New Mexico- currently, they have 37,302 confirmed cases, 935 confirmed deaths, 19,894 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham for reporting recoveries; how about encouraging other governors to do likewise?  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 304,635 confirmed cases, 2,260 confirmed deaths, and 272,768 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: India: they have 7,594,736 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 115,236 confirmed deaths and 6,730,617 confirmed recoveries.
  59. 2020 Monday D: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,195.42, DOWN 410.89 points (-1.44%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,478.88, DOWN 192.67 points (-1.65%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,426.92, DOWN 56.89 points (-1.63%).  Price of GOLD: $1,905.90 per troy oz., -5.80 (-0.30%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.49 per troy oz., -0.208 (-0.84%).  Price of PLATINUM: $858.50 per troy oz., -5.00 (-0.58%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,357.50 per troy oz., +15.20 (+0.65%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.08 per #, -0.006 (-0.19%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $40.64, -0.19 (-0.47%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.68 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.84 Afghan afghani.
  60. 2020 Monday E: We have two NFL games today/tonight: (14) Kansas City Chiefs, 26 (5-1) @ the Buffalo Bills, 17 (4-2) and then the regular Monday Night Football game: (15) Arizona Cardinals, 38 (4-2) @ the Dallas Cowboys, 10 (2-4).  What the heck has happened to the Cowboys?  Tony Romo, please come back!
  61. 2020 Monday F: As everyone should know, Democratic Party presidential nominee has put a lid on his campaign until Thursday night’s third and final debate in Nashville, Tennessee, at Belmont University, the one hosted by left-wing hack Kristen Welker.  The president, however, is out pounding the trail, had two big rallies today, first in Prescott, Arizona, and then in Tucson.  Both of them were attended by tens of thousands of people and the energy was overwhelming.  Amazing.  They must be pumping the blood of aborted children into the veins of “Pro-China Joe” Biden if no one is going to see him for three-and-a-half days.  As for Kooky Kamala, NO one knows where she is or what the heck she’s doing- maybe spending quality time with Willie Brown?
  62. 2020 Monday G: The Presidential Debate Commission announces it has changed the rules and that when President Donald J. Trump and former VP “Pro-China Joe” Biden tango on Thursday night in Nashville, Tennessee, at Belmont College, they will mute the mics if either candidate disobeys the rules.  We suspect that when the commander-in-chief attempts to bring up Hunter Biden’s laptop and moderator Kristen Welker cuts his mic that perhaps the sitting president will pull out a “Mr, Microphone” (available at Kohl’s for $30.00) and continue saying whatever he’s going to say.  YOU don’t cut off a president, Ms. Welker.   Speaking of Hunter Biden’s laptop, Democrats at all levels and their allies in the Fake News are calling Hunter’s laptop part of yet another Vladimir Putin ‘disinformation’ campaign working on behalf of Trump.  These people are sick.
  63. 2020 Monday H: As we always say, stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms and their putzes in the Democratic Party are up today- getting close to the election so you know these scumbags are up to something…

On November 07, 2009, the Move released their next greatest hits package across the planet: “The Very Best of the Move.”  Much more popular in the UK than they ever were in the United States, the album contained 25 indispensable tracks from throughout the group’s rather short career on four music-packed discs.  We hope you will check this one out and consider adding it to your collection because despite whatever you might have heard, this band was among the major acts upon which, future bands would lay their foundation.  Please seek it out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.
