X. 1942 Thursday A: On the Eastern Front, after Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goering had assured Adolf Hitler that the German air force could supply the entrapped Sixth Army and the Fourth Panzer Armies in and around Stalingrad, supplies that would total 500 tons per day just to keep the army supplied to the fullest, the weather prevented the less than adequate number of supply aircraft landing more than 130 tons since Tuesday. What made things even worse is that the Luftwaffe would not cooperate with Wehrmacht quartermasters so much of what came was unusable such as boots for right feet but not the left, marjoram, pepper, and contraceptives. As author John Shaw points out in a Time-Life Book, at least the soldiers within the cauldron could disguise the flavor of the rats they soon found themselves forced to eat.

  60. 2018 Monday:  As liberals continue wailing about the ‘mistreatment’ of illegal alien families in Tijuana, Mexico, President Trump defends the U.S. Border Patrol’s use of tear gas to disperse the milling throngs trying to storm the point of entry.  The President points out that the parents and the so-called ‘grabbers’ who grab an unaccompanied illegal alien minor thinking they can enter the country and then claim asylum.  Boohoo, people, stop with the alligator tears.  Meanwhile, to the horror of leftist journalists, President Trump disputes recent findings on Climate Change which 13 U.S. government agencies claim will reduce the country’s GDP by 10-percent come the year 2100.  Uh, okay.   
  61. 2019 Tuesday: The New York Times reports that President Donald J. Trump knew of the so-called whistleblower complaint at the time he withheld $391 million in military aid to the Ukraine earlier in the week.  Next week, impeachment hearings will begin in earnest as the raving lunatic Democrats are determined to remove the 45th president for ‘trumped up charges.’   Meanwhile, illicit videos make it out of Iran showing the government’s bloody crackdown on protesters demanding FREEDOM.  It’s not pretty what with blood flowing in the streets of Tehran and in other cities around that deplorable country.

Trump decides to light up the Shiite nation.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s ban on church services during the Chi-Com-Virus (“CCV”) outbreak ravaging the Empire State, one inflicted upon the citizens of the state by the ignorant governor and his moronic sidekick, NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio.  Good going!  Elsewhere, Disney announces that it will be laying off another 32,000 employees due to all the Chinese Virus lockdowns and restrictions left-wing governors and mayors are imposing on their theme parks.  Finally, that dimwit Joe Scarborough of “Morning Joe” infamy says he ‘won’t be going back to the GOP because it supported Donald J.

  64. 2020 Thursday B: Week 12 of the NFL 2020-21 Season kicks off today but only with TWO games as staff for the late teams test positive with the Chi-Com Virus.  First, we have (1) Houston Texans, 41 (4-7) @ Detroit Lions, 25 (4-7) 9:30 A.M.  Next, we have (2) Washington Redskins, 41 (4-7) @ Dallas Cowboys, 16 (3-8) 1:30 P.M.
  65. 2020 Thursday C: 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: 60,719,579 confirmed cases, +617,692, 1,427,184, confirmed deaths, +11,072, and 38,904,777 confirmed recoveries, +451,954.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 12,905,665 confirmed cases, UP 226,456 from yesterday’s reporting, 265,740 confirmed deaths, UP 2,215, and 6,406,159 confirmed recoveries, UP 54,301.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 331,915 confirmed cases, 2,826 confirmed deaths, and 319,921 confirmed recoveries.
  66. 2020 Thursday D: 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: 1,170,425 confirmed cases, 18,981 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 17,561 confirmed cases, 233 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 161,214 confirmed cases, 2,825 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Kansas- currently, they have 150,515 confirmed cases, 1,503 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.         
  67. 2020 Thursday E: One America News shared a major investigative look into COVID-19, how many people have been harmed by the lockdowns and restrictions and how the politicization of Plaquenil, aka hydroxychloroquine, simply because President Donald Trump had mentioned it as a possible treatment led to the deaths of far more people than were necessary.  OAN also pointed out that there are more adverse health issues caused by the hysteria over the Chi-Vi from Wuhan, communist China and how hospitals and doctors were pressured into listing all deaths in which anyone who might have tested positive but was not ill from the disease but from another condition or malady and then died as a ‘COVID-19 death.’  We know that politics has corrupted everything in our society all because of who the president is.      What’s more, the Democrats, we believe, conspired with the Chi-Coms to release this disease in the hopes that it could be used to flip the election  to “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his senatorial sidekick, Kamala Harris.  Speaking of “Pro-China Joe,” he gave his first Thanksgiving Day address online and ONLY 1,000 people tuned in to hear it with most of them abandoning it within the first 2-3 minutes and go elsewhere.  And “Pro-China Joe” won 80,000,000 votes.  Sure.  Sure he did.

On April 26, 2011, Foreigner released its second “Extended Versions,” an album that emanates from yesterday’s offering, “Can’t Slow Down…When It’s Live,” but does not include the entire concert but only the extended versions for those who dig that sort of thing.  Some bands play the setlist sans any deviations but for those that perform different versions every show, well, God bless them, because it bestows additional concert albums on the fans.  Here’s the lineup: Mick Jones (guitars), Thom Gimbel (guitars, vocals, keyboards, and horns), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Jason Sutter (drums), and Kelly Hansen (vocals).  Friends, this is bargain-priced so what the heck do you have to lose?  Seek it out, give it a listen, and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
