S. 1942 Tuesday: On the fifth day of the Battle of El Alamein, despite heavy losses, Australian troops continue pushing through the defensive rings of the Afrika Korps. On the Eastern Front in the fight at Stalingrad, German machine gunners manage to make it close to the Volga River by exploiting the growing gap between the Red October and Barricades tractor factories. They approach within 400 yards, bringing the last remaining Soviet ferry across the river under direct fire. In the Caucasus, the 23rd Panzer Division in joint operations with the Romanian 2nd Mountain Division capture the town of Zhemiaga which isolates Soviet defenders as their lines of communication are cut off.

Trump for re-election as do all law enforcement unions.  Speaking of Trump, he promises the ‘best stimulus package’ following his re-election.   Finally, the home price index is up +5.7.
  52. 2020 Tuesday A: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 43,633,558 confirmed cases, UP by 446,424 cases, 1,161,422 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,769 deaths, and 29,262,603 confirmed recoveries, UP by 244,571 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 8,850,230 confirmed cases, UP by 98,018 new cases, 229,550 confirmed deaths, UP by 960 new deaths, and 5,462,728 confirmed recoveries, UP by 43,483 new recoveries.
  53. 2020 Tuesday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 915,109 confirmed cases, 17,409 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 14,858 confirmed cases, 212 confirmed deaths, and 11,405 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 108,442 confirmed cases, 2,429 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Indiana: 168,996 confirmed number of cases, 4,194  confirmed number of deaths, but no mention of confirmed number of recoveries- that’s that Governor Eric Holcomb for you- Republican in name only.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 311,724 confirmed cases, 2,483 confirmed deaths, and 296,656 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for relatives of Rashida Tlaib committing acts of terrorism where you live, Mo- you never know what Rashida Tlaib and her peeps are doing.
  54. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,463.19, DOWN 222.19 points (-0.80%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,431.35, UP 72.41 points (+0.64%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,390.68, DOWN 10.29 points (-0.30%).  The price of GOLD is $1,909.70 per troy oz., -2.20 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.44 per troy ounce, -0.135 (-0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $881.30 per troy oz, -5.50 (-0.62%) while the price of COPPER is $3.08 per pound, -0.018 (-0.58%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,353.90 per troy oz., -14.80 (-0.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.87 per barrel, -0.70 (-1.77%).  Today, COCOA is $2,492.00 per metric ton, +0.37 (+1.51).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.70 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  55. 2020 Tuesday D: We learn today that following a police shooting of a violent black man armed with a large knife in Philadelphia last night, 30 officers were injured in the subsequent mob violence that erupted out of nowhere.  The cops arrived at a home where a domestic violence event was in progress and on police cameras, the suspect stormed out the house, knife held high, and rushed the cops.  They shot and killed him.  Moral of the story- don’t threaten the cops.   Speaking of Pennsylvania, President Trump bets the upcoming election on the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Minnesota.  Meanwhile, CNN blocks ads on the middle-class tax hikes “Pro-China Joe” Biden plans to enact once he’s elected president.   Talk about Orwellian.  Elsewhere, President Trump lifts tariffs on Canadian low-cost aluminum but tells Ottawa that if they continue cheating the United States, he will slap them back on their exports.

  58. 2020 Tuesday G: Former business partner with Hunter Biden and the Biden Family, Tony Bobulinski, sat down with Tucker Carlson on Fox News tonight and laid out step-by-step the corruption rank among the Bidens.  He pointed out how they were selling out the interests of their country on behalf of their own financial interests and the Fake News media continues trying to erase this story, cover it up, and protect stumbling, bumbling, rumbling old senile “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Democrats continue screeching it’s ‘Russian disinformation on behalf of the Trump campaign.’  Folks, a whole lotta payback is coming to these scurrilous scumbags on Election Day.  Join us and tens of millions of early voters voting STRAIGHT GOP.
  59. 2020 Tuesday H: Friends, the closer we come to the election, the more the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party hacks try to steal the elections by sowing as much confusion as possible into the system.  We hate to say this, after the elections, there is going to be hell to pay- for them.

Tuesday, October 27, 2020:


[i] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[iii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[iv] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.
