T. 1942 Tuesday: Hitler’s so-called ‘fireman,’ German Field Marshal Eric von Manstein, arrives at Starobelsk to seek a way to relieve the trapped Germans at Stalingrad. The day before Lt. General Friedrich Paulus had requested ‘freedom of movement,’ meaning if the hedgehog defense failed to contain the Soviets, he wanted to break out with the army to the southwest. Hitler had told him to hold on and today, Paulus issues the same request to which, the Fuhrer issued a Fuhrer Decree- the highest decree in the Third Reich- ordering Paulus to stay put, that the Sixth Army would be supplied by the Luftwaffe.

  54. 2020 Tuesday A: President Trump announces his firm stance against the renaming of U.S. military bases named after Confederate generals.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. announces a list of 85 communist Chinese companies all with ties to the Chi-Com military.  We should do business with none of these rat-eating companies.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the U.S. announces it will stand with both Vietnam and the Philippines when it comes to defending the independence of the South Chia Sea, a region of the world in which, the Chi-Coms construct manmade islands and then declare them sovereign territory.  Screw these communist bastards.
  55. 2020 Tuesday B: Pennsylvania certifies the results of the 2020 presidential election as does Nevada later in the day.  Meanwhile, as ‘president-elect pro-China Joe’ Biden continues naming names of those whom he is inviting to serve in his Cabinet, the fake news media continues celebrating each of the aged far-left political hacks, many of whom served President Barack Hussein Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden.  There goes the country.  Meanwhile, whacked-out California Congresswoman Maxine Waters wants to investigate President Trump for being a ‘criminal.’  What a flipping nut!

  57. 2020 Tuesday D: 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: 1,145,291 confirmed cases, 18,789 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 17,483 confirmed cases, 233 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 156,035 confirmed cases, 2,781 confirmed deaths, but like California, the thuggish 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, Oklahoma: 180,610 confirmed number of cases, 1,664  confirmed number of deaths, and 145,686 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 330,935 confirmed cases, 2,822 confirmed deaths, and 319,086 confirmed recoveries.

  59. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1610 with a jackpot of $200 million up for grabs: 09, 15, 34, 61, 64, and Mega 06.  The highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $42,771.  Over all, there were 91,936 winning tickets.

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)

Anyone who knows the story of rock-and-roll in general and of the artist, Lou Gramm, in particular, you know it’s a life of excess to the point that many fall by the wayside while others manage to survive, many times throwing off their old life like a snake its skin.  Lou Gramm suffered some debilitating health problems that could have sent him to ‘the other side’ but he survived that scare just as he did a lifetime of substance abuse that rock-and-roll inflicted on him.  On June 02, 2009, he released an album called “Lou Gramm Band” in which, he performed classic renditions of Christian music- that’s right- Christian music- as a way of thanking the Lord for the love and kindness he showed his way when he needed it most.  Unfortunately, this album will cost you $196.10 or $8.33 for the MP-3 version.  If you’re curious, please seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did as we all require salvation at one point or another in our lifetimes…
