The major hub through which the army had to pass- the city of Rostov- was a problem because Red Army troops were approximately 40 miles from the city while the Germans were more than 300 miles to the east and fighting to reach it.

- 2016 Thursday: In Auckland, New Zealand, 12 nations- including the United States- sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. Elsewhere, in an address to Finland’s parliament, the Finnish president tells his countrymen that the unending flow of Muslim migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers into the continent threatens to upend Western Civilization. He’s right.
- 2017 Saturday: U.S. President Donald J. Trump and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko hold a phone call in which the two leaders meet and discuss the situation in the eastern portion of the former Soviet socialist republic, the Donbass, where the Russians are trying to break it off and to incorporate it into Russia. Meanwhile, the Australian government announces it will continue to honor the deal it struck with the Obama administration to accept illegal aliens from Central America even though the U.S. has postponed doing its part of the agreement and that is taking Muslim refugees in the South Pacific. We have enough problems as it is, we don’t need more people.
- 2018 Sunday: The Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII by pounding the New England Patriots, 41-33. It was a great game and although Tom Brady played well, one could tell he was feeling his age. It was the first Super Bowl victory for the Eagles, and they did it with backup quarterback Nick Foles. Congratulations, Philly! Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson suggests the United States ‘could employ force in a coup attempt against the Maduro regime in Venezuela.’
- 2019 Monday: As things go from bad to worse in Venezuela, several European countries- namely Germany, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom- recognize opposition leader Juan Guiado as the interim leader of the devastated country. This of course does not sit well with former bus driver and current president Nicolas Maduro. Meanwhile, Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam, Democrat, delays his decision on whether he will step down from office as he is still not sure if the picture in his college yearbook depicting him as either a member of the KKK or dressed in blackface is ‘really him.’ Come on, bigot, leave office NOW.
- 2020 Tuesday: Once again Democrats demonstrate they cannot steal an election properly. Last night was the Iowa caucuses- ‘first in the nation’ (WHY?)- and the results have not yet been made available to the public. Millions of Americans speculate that Joe Biden came in 4th or 5th and that either communist Bernie Sanders or Podunk town Mayor Pete came in at the top. Therefore, Troy Price- chair of the IA Democratic Party- is doing everything possible to find more caucus results from outhouses and condemned buildings to flip the votes to CHOMO Joe Biden. Disaster strikes again. And the Democrats claim Donald Trump and the Republicans stole an election! WTF! Then, some results trickled out that showed Mayor Pete (26.9%) first followed by Sanders (25.1%) followed by Liz Warren (18.3%) followed by Joe Biden (15.6%) followed by Amy Klobuchar (12.6%). The political dead were Andrew Yang (1.0%), Tom Steyer (less than 1%), Uncommitted (less than 1%), Michael Bloomberg (less than 1%) and Tulsi Gabbard (less than 1%).
- 2020 Tuesday A: COVID-19 continues raging around the world. The Princess Cruise Lines Diamond Princess finds itself in Yokohama Bay, Japan, in quarantine with all its passengers onboard. They cannot get off, they cannot leave, NO one will have them as they have Chi-Vi-infected people on the ship. Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms announce the death toll has surpassed 400 victims and more than 20,000 ill people yet asks the United States ‘not to overreact’ as the U.S. seeks access to information. Elsewhere, Hong Kong reports its first COVID-19 death making it the second person outside the PRC to succumb from the growing pandemic. Finally, President Donald J. Trump delivers his third State of the Union Address and when he’s wrapping it up, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi takes his speech and rips it to shreds in front of the entire world. Wow. Boot this hag from the people’s house, please.
- 2021 Thursday: The proponents of continuous war- aka the military-industrial-politico complex- seek to keep U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan despite threats from the Taliban as to what might happen to them if they halt the withdrawal. Elsewhere, Joe Biden has put a freeze on troop withdrawals from Germany and their redeployment elsewhere, something the previous president sought due to Germany closely tying itself to Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has ordered a military-wide standdown so the military can root through all its WHITE members seeking to uncover racism, bigotry, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, and whatever else is the ‘in’ thing at the moment. It will accomplish this by going through all social media posts of its white servicemembers. Although they are NOT saying they are exclusively singling out whites, we know that they are. Such is the modern-day United States of America. Speaking of all this latent racism and bigotry among white people, what does Joe Biden do at the prayer breakfast? He calls out ‘political’ extremism meaning ‘white supremacism,’ something that NO longer exists. What a world in which, we live…
- 2021 Thursday A: California Governor Gavin Newsom, Democrat, is holding off on naming a replacement to fill outgoing AG Xavier Becerra until after he’s been confirmed as the next secretary of Health and Human Services. There is a possibility he won’t because he is such a whacked-out, far-left nut that he might not make it although in this time, it appears the ‘crazier the better.’ Meanwhile, Politico reports that the recall of Governor Newsom now is ‘unavoidable’ seeing as how he has few if any remaining supporters. He has proven to be a greater disaster than Governor Gray Davis ever was, another Democrat who was recalled about 16 years ago.
- 2021 Thursday B: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce urges- implores- Joe Biden to compromise on the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill as the 46th president considers bypassing the GOP. Meanwhile, in a nod to Joe Biden, the U.S. Supreme Court announces it will NOT hear oral arguments in Trump-related immigration cases. Next, union officials from the state of Alabama are meeting with the 46th president to discuss the ongoing case of unionizing the Amazon.com fulfillment center in the state. Amazon is resisting its employees demands for union protections while labor leaders are determined to force the online retail giant to buckle under to their demands.
- 2021 Thursday C: Kamran Abbasi- editor of the British Medical Journal- has accused world governments of ‘social murder’ over their mishandling of the Chinese Virus Crisis. Regarding the Chi-Com Virus, the CDC says, “Inoculating teachers is not necessary to reopen schools” yet public schools remain closed while private schools are up and running. Speaking of schools, San Francisco Mayor London Breed and the San Francisco School District is at war with one another as the mayor demands they reopen the schools while the school unions tell her to go f**k herself. We say someone must be brave like Ronald Reagan was with the air traffic controllers, give them an ultimatum to open or get fired and then when they won’t reopen, fire the entire flipping lot of these scurrilous scumbags. It is the ONLY thing to do.
- 2021 Thursday D: Following the House GOP vote to keep censured Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney in her leadership post, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy calls for ‘UNITY’ while forcing Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene to apologize for ALL her statements prior to becoming a member of Congress. Our California colleagues inform us that they will NO longer vote for Congressman McCarthy, even if it means Democrats take his seat. Enough is enough is what they say. Speaking of Congresswoman Greene, she can no longer serve on any committees. After all, upstanding Illinois RINO Adam Kinzinger says ‘Greene cannot serve unless she proves she is ‘contrite’ for her past actions. Speaking of political corruption and the like, New York state lawmakers are fighting to block Attorney General Letitia James investigation into all the deaths Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has caused and tried to coverup. Wow.
- 2021 Thursday E: Recently appointed to a three-year term on the Council of the Administration Conference of the United States, Trump appointee Roger Severino- asked on Wednesday to resign or be fired by the 46th president- has filed a lawsuit against ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for wrongful termination. Good. People must fight back against fascism wherever they find it. Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ the 46th president is considering sending every American (Chi-Com-manufactured) face masks so as to fight the Wuhan Bat Flu running amok around the world. Sadly, like most masks, they will end up blowing across the streets and highways of the country, collecting along fence lines, in gutters, and everywhere else as do billions of plastic bags. Most people are not going to wear this crap, Joe, so please, don’t waste taxpayer dollars on Chi-Com facemasks. Speaking of Mr. Biden, son, Hunter’s ‘memoirs’ are coming out in April, entitled, “How I raked in Billions while smoking Crack and banging Prepubescent Girls.” We’re really looking forward to this book! (We don’t know what the title really is, but wouldn’t it be great if this were the title?)
- 2021 Thursday F: With the Biden COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill coming soon to a town near you, several Kroger stores in California are already closing down as they cannot afford the increased minimum wage to $15 per hour that is included within it. Hell, NO one can so expect millions of other stores to call it quits over the course of the year and the OMB claims everything will be peachy-keen by mid-year. What a load of crap. Meanwhile, there was an 80-percent jump in gun sales in January 2021. Heck, several of our members went out and beefed up their gun collections while some of our California members put them into secure sites while informing law enforcement they were missing. NO one is going to hand over firearms. Speaking of weapons, U.S. Envoy to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, Robert Wood says the ‘Biden administration is going to pursue arms control and engagement with the Chi-Coms.’ Woo-oo! Next, famed attorney Lin Wood is now under investigation for VOTER FRAUD. Finally, famed Watergate plumber Eugenio Martinez has died at the age of 98.
- 2021 Thursday G: In the House of Representatives, Marjorie Taylor Greene has been removed by a party line vote- 218 to 210- from her two major committee assignments- Education & Labor and Budget. Democrats are exuberant and Republicans silent. What they are doing is making Greene bigger than before which is what the Dems are also doing to former President Donald J. Trump by demanding he appear at the ‘re-impeachment trial’ next week and testifying under oath. Although the Democrats do not believe this, they are going to be punished by voters more ways than one because even if H.R. 1 becomes law, Republicans are already converting legions of illegal aliens to vote GOP in next year’s mid-terms. Two can play the same game, folks.
- 2021 Thursday H: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 104,684,395 confirmed cases, +435,785, 2,277,590, confirmed deaths, +13,798, and 58,164,975 confirmed recoveries, +271,687. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,791,783 confirmed cases, up 60,966 from yesterday’s reporting, 454,392 confirmed deaths, UP 1,365, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s. NOTE- in the White House 16 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries. Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe. NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 49,580 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S. Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
- 2021 Thursday I: 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: 3,366,597 confirmed cases, 42,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,187 confirmed cases, 416 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 319,502 confirmed cases, 4,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- New York: currently, thanks to Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, they have 1,444,199 confirmed cases, 43,687 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 668,874 confirmed cases, 4,948 confirmed deaths, and 589,311 confirmed recoveries. For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Russia: currently, they have 3,917,918 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 75,205 confirmed deaths, and 3,389,913 confirmed recoveries. In other Chinese Virus news, Johnson & Johnson is seeking the FDA to give their one-shot Wuhan Flu vaccine the go-ahead necessary with which to start getting it into the arms of the American people.
- 2021 Thursday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,055.86, UP 332.26 points (+1.08%). Next, the NASDAQ: 13,777.74, UP 167.20 points (+1.23%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,871.74, UP 41.57 points (+1.09%). The price of GOLD is $1,796.40 per troy oz., +5.20 (+0.29%) while the price of SILVER is $26.43 per troy ounce, +0.20 (+0.75%). The price of PLATINUM is $1,107.20 per troy oz, +0.04 (+0.36%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.01 (+0.18%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,280.70 per troy oz, +4.10 (+0.18%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $56.59 per barrel, +0.36 (+0.64%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.37. Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000027 Bitcoin (BTC). In other economic news, Shell Oil’s profits have slumped to their lowest level in 20 years. Thank you, Joe Biden.
- 2021 Thursday K: The Jeffrey Epstein fund for victims has abruptly halted its payouts. No one is sure as to WHY? Meanwhile, as the truth continues coming about Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, birth name Sandy Cortez, and her ‘terrifying moments in the Capitol Complex on January 6, when Antifa-led mobs stormed the Capitol Building, we learn she was not even present. She was nowhere near the action so as the truth continues coming out, she has been yanking down tweets and videos so as not to embarrass herself. Girl- you are already embarrassed. Elsewhere, the attorneys for Donald Trump says he WON’T answer a demand from his inquisitors to show up for next week’s SHOW TRIAL in the U.S. Senate. Speaking of President Trump, he resigned from the Screen Actors Guild today. Why should he? It’s a kangaroo court. Finally, state legislators are going to town on Governor Tony Evers’ MASK MANDATE. No one is going to wear this crap. It’s over and done.
- 2021 Thursday L: The U.S. Border Patrol is reporting its agents are being overrun by tens of thousands of illegal aliens. Mexican states along the border with the U.S. no longer are accepting returns of illegal aliens so the illegals are ‘caught’ and then ‘released’ into the interior of the United States. Without Donald Trump in the White House, Democrats plans of social re-engineering the United States into a Third World S-hole country are underway. Meanwhile, a report says that during the four years Donald Trump spent in the White House, he lost half his net worth. Elsewhere, Joe Biden threatens to amp up restrictions on the Russians if they fail to free Alexei Navalny. Russia responds with ‘bug off.’ Finally, following Congressman Matt Gaetz asking House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, to recite the Pledge of Allegiance ahead of every meeting, Nadler tells his GOP colleague, more or less, to ‘bug off’ like the Russians told Joe Biden on Navalny. Wow. Patriotism (or lack of it on the part of the Democrats).
- 2021 Thursday M: We learned that someone has made off with 10# of C-4 plastic explosive from a USMC base in California, most likely Camp Pendleton. NOT good. Meanwhile, a federal judge in Oregon says it’s ‘okay’ for state officials to provide COVID-19 immunizations to prisoners in the state’s hoosegows. They will receive their immunizations before senior citizens and schoolteachers. There you go. Next, Joe Biden revives the old stories of being ‘shot at while overseas’ in much the same way Hillary Clinton used to tell comparable stories. It’s all bogus but it makes for good tall tales told around campfires late at night. Elsewhere, freshman Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorne says he has ‘no regrets’ about speaking at the Stop the Steal Rally in Washington, D.C., on January 6, the day of the Antifa-led storming of the Capitol Building.
- 2021 Thursday N: Speaking of the Stop the Steal Rally on January 6, Tucker Carlson reported something extremely disturbing tonight on his show on Fox News Channel. He reported that Bank of America is actively investigating charges made by its customers between January 5-7, 2021, in and around Washington, D.C., in the hope of locating ‘Pro-Trump extremists and white supremacists’ so it can then hand the over to federal law enforcement. IF you were in D.C. on those dates and bought a donut and a coffee, BOA handed that information over to the feds who have already knocked on doors and questioned people. Wow. Is this the bank with which you want to do business? Not us, we are closing our accounts as quickly as we can. Meanwhile, returning to the story mentioned first above in “L,” the Border Patrol reports that it has arrested 11 Iranians attempting to cross the border into the United States from Mexico. NOT GOOD.
- 2021 Thursday O: First-time unemployment claims have fallen the third straight week in a row, down to 779,000 jobless claims for a total of 17.8 million Americans on government assistance. However, as soon as the minimum wage rises to $15 per hour, we expect there will be 1.5 million jobless claims in the first week with 750,000 to one million per week after that. Add to that the numbers of illegal aliens now being permitted into the country, and we expect by late March-early April to see an economic depression rivaling that of 1929. Secure your wealth, hide your funds, troubled times are coming. There is no way the TRIPLE THREAT of (1) a higher minimum wage combined with (2) the ongoing COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions plus (3) a sudden vast pool of low-skilled to unskilled labor is going to cause what the OMB says is going to be a massive economic recovery by June 2021. We haven’t even included skyrocketing energy costs thanks to the cessation of fracking on federal lands yet. It’s going to be BAD. Elsewhere, Joe Biden will no longer provide support to the Saudi-led war in neighboring Yemen in the fight against Iran and their proxies, the Houthi rebels. Yet another pro-Iranian policy.

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Fairport Convention released another classic album, this one a live one: “Babbacombe Lee Live Again” on January 23, 2012. During their tour of 2011, the band performed their entire concept album, “Babbacombe Lee” about the man they could not hang. Here is a reprise of what we said about the original release that came out in 1971: “Well, what is surprising about a British folk band doing a theme album on a British historical character, John Babbacombe Lee, a condemned murderer sent to the gallows. However, luck saved Mr. Lee because the gallows failed to operate properly not once, not twice, but three separate times thus he received a reprieve. Obviously, the Good Lord did not want Lee dead.” The album features the current lineup of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes). One must love this famed British ensemble as they continue plugging along, finding additional fans to add to generations of older ones and still they sell records, sell out tours, and bring joy to everyone in the world. We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your listening regimen- we think you will be glad you did.
