Lynch Meets With Bill Clinton Privately for 30 Minutes

Maybe we have become so numb to the political bias of the former AG hack
Whose goal was not to oversee justice but always, always protect Obama’s back
The president has vowed the FBI in investigating HRC will have free rein
What little credibility of that vow just went down the drain
Pretty basic that as a lawyer during an investigation you don’t have with a suspect’s hubby a private tête-à-tête
The appearance of impropriety or bias is something a top prosecutor must in the pursuit of justice reject
Loretta Lynch to whom the FBI will after finishing with Hillary report
Her decision then made to see if Hillary will be facing her day in court
Met for 30 minutes with Bill Clinton on her plane after it had landed in Sky Harbor
Optics are everything, was this “chance” encounter to support for his wife garner?
Should we believe Ms. Lynch just a harmless chit chat over grandchildren and his golf game?
In this highly charged election year with so much at stake her actions merit condemnation and blame
Obama has already prejudged her innocence and supposedly without talking to the FBI
With a solemn vow like you can keep your plan any interference by him he of course denies
He soon will be with her on the campaign trail
Brought to us by the same team that brought us the it’s a video lying tale
Even some Blues are now shaking their heads
While Reds rightfully so want an independent prosecutor instead
No wonder Americans in their government have had their faith lost
Politicians like Hillary and Obama are driven to always stay in power, to win at any cost

June 30, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Social Media Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For June 30, 2016. Unfortunately still 204 days to go in President Obama’s pathetic lame duck term as the financial markets slowly are recovering from the meltdown after Brexit; any doubt that radical Islam is a worldwide existential threat to civilization notwithstanding Obama’s silence on Istanbul and Kerry’s ludicrous assertion while taking a break from climate change rants that ISIS is desperate, news today is that the three fanatic misguided martyrs were linked to Russia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan; today marks the beginning of the first day of the third year of this caliphate cancer and Obama is still clueless and as a commander in chief without any strategy to defeat, much less contain, this perversion of the Muslim faith; if you thought our DOJ would impartially examine the evidence of Hillary’s criminal conduct over her server and the quid pro quo of Bill Clinton’s speeches and donations to the Clinton Foundation, dream on as in a shocking display of the appearance of corruption our AG met privately with Bill Clinton for 30 minutes while her airplane was parked on the tarmac in Arizona to chit chat about “his golf game and grandchildren”—she has fatally compromised her integrity and forfeited what little integrity the DOJ had left after the hack Holder ran it into the political swamps.
      This news is so frightening and chilling that it has to stand alone; the FEC voted 3-3 to punish Fox News over its format changes to the first Republican debate with the undercard and prime time card. Talk about an assault on the free press which every American regardless of party should be totally outraged and demanding that the Blues who attempted this censorship should be impeached. Instead, just like in the case of the IRS waging war on the Tea Party, from the main stream media only the sounds of silence.
       On the compassion front, Los Angeles struggling with a homeless population of over 27,000 voted to put a 1.2 billion dollar bond measure on the ballot to create shelters and drug and rehab services for the homeless—at around $80 a year per property owner seems like a human response. On the athletic front Michal Phelps, assuming he does not pick up any more DUIs will be the first athlete in history to participate in five Olympics. Tragic news and proof positive that notwithstanding their size grizzly bears are really fast sprinters as a mountain biker discovered as he was caught and killed by a grizzly in Montana’s Glacier National Park. www.lyingcrookedhillary.com is a great way to start your day along of course with www.alaskanpoet.blogspot.com
       As always, I hope  you enjoy today’s holidays and observances,  a music link to Whitney Houston, factoids of interest, a  relevant quote from Amy Jo Martin while looking forward to enjoying an ice cream soda (killer recipes below), blessed with a positive attitude and  secure in  the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like birthdays, weddings, or  anniversaries, you know that the Alaskanpoet can provide you with a unique customized poem  at a great price  tailored to the event and the recipient. You need only contact me for details.
1. Asteroid Day—with all the concern over radical Islam except in the White House, global warming and the fact that the San Andreas fault is “locked and loaded” not sure if we need another observance to galvanize our awareness of another potential existential disaster, but we do and this observance to create awareness of the danger to this planet from a collision with an asteroid was created on this day in 2015. When you retire this evening and look up into the skies pray to your god that there is not hiding in the far reaches of the heavens a huge, huge piece of rock weighing many tons that is heading in our direction at 20,000 plus miles an hour.     
2. National Social Media Day—celebrating since 2010 the contribution of social media to our interaction as human beings and the dissemination of knowledge and opportunities for discussion.                     
3. 1987 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1987 on a run of two weeks in that position by a singer, Whitney Houston, who had one of the best voices in the business “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.”. Here is a link to a vibrant, full of life Whitney Houston performing that song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eH3giaIzONA
4. National Ice Cream Soda Day—celebrating a really great way to beat the summer heat as we all know “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.” Here are some great ice cream soda recipes to try today:  http://www.thenibble.com/reviews/main/ice-cream/ice-cream-soda.asp          
5. Talk About A Stiff And Sore Neckcelebrating the birthday on this day in 1985 of the only athlete to compete in 5 Olympics and who has won more medals, 22, than any athlete in Olympic history and will be on the U.S. Swim Team in Rio this summer for his fifth Olympiad, looking to add to his medal total.  
On this day in:
a. 1906 In response to Upton Sinclair’s book The Jungle which exposed the practices of the Chicago meat packing industry, Congress passed the Meat Inspection Act and the Pure Food and Drug Act.
b. 1936 Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia appealed to no avail to the League of Nations for help against Italy’s invasion of his country. 
c. 1953 that iconic sports car the Chevrolet Corvette first rolled of the assembly line.
d. 1966 the National Organization for Women was founded.
e. 2015 in a chilling reminder of how firefighters risk their lives, 19 firefighters were killed in Yarnell, Arizona fighting a raging wildfire—being burned to death is definitely not a favored exit from this planet.  
Reflections on social media: “Just as we teach our children how to ride a bike, we need to teach them how to navigate social media and make the right moves that will help them. The physical world is similar to the virtual world in many cases. It's about being aware. We can prevent many debacles if we're educated.” Amy Jo Martin, noted American author and entrepreneur—wise words

June 29, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not National Camera Day,

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For June 29, 2016. Unfortunately still 205 days to go in President Obama’s pathetic lame duck term as the financial markets recovered somewhat yesterday but Turkey took it on the chin yesterday with yet three more ISIS suicide bombings at Ataturk Airport in Istanbul killing over 40 and wounding over 230 (terrible loss of life but maybe Turkey will finally get its act together, close its border and bring its armed forces to bear on crushing the ISIS caliphate that is celebrating its two year anniversary today); the Benghazi Committee Report was released which shows a complete failure of Obama and Clinton leadership and indecision while 4 Americans died—Hillary in typical Clinton fashion hypocritically slammed the $7 million spent in taxpayer funds and intoned that it is time to “move on” (to some extent she is right as it is time to move on for we as a people to move on and leave this felon in the trash heap of history on the outside of the White House, never to step her unfit feet through its doors); Trump and Hillary responded to the Istanbul tragedy but only sounds of silence from Obama, Kerry touting the ridiculous idea that ISIS is desperate and Lynch winning the prize more the most ludicrous statement of all delivered before the attack that we should fight ISIS with “love.” www.lyingcrookedhillary.com is a great way to start your day along of course with www.alaskanpoet.blogspot.com
       As always, I hope  you enjoy today’s holidays and observances,  a music link to Billy Ocean, factoids of interest, a  relevant quote from John Grisham while looking forward to enjoying almond butterscotch, blessed with a positive attitude and  secure in  the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like birthdays, weddings, or  anniversaries, you know that the Alaskanpoet can provide you with a unique customized poem  at a great price  tailored to the event and the recipient. You need only contact me for details.
1. National Camera Day—celebrating that great device that has brought memories to life and still growing strong in now a digital format.  
2. Feasts of St. Paul and St. Peter—honoring the martyrdom of these two Apostles and patron saints of Rome and observed in Rome as a public holiday.                     
3. 1986 Number One Song—celebrating the number one song in 1986 on a run of one week in that position “There Will Be Sad Songs” by Billy Ocean. Here is a link to Billy Ocean performing “There Will Be Sad Songs.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLjpJZbxkAU
4. National Almond Buttercrunch Day—celebrating a tasty candy which in the case of Almond Roca has been around in the U.S. since 1923.
5. The Little Prince Has Legs—celebrating the birthday on this day in 1900 of noted aviator and author of The Little Prince  Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, who was lost on a reconnaissance flight over France during World War II; his works live on and The Little Prince has been made into a movie scheduled for release in 2016.  
On this day in:
a. 1888 George Edward Gouraud recorded Handel’s "Israel in Egypt” on a phonograph cylinder; it is believed to be the oldest musical recording.
b. 1927 The Bird of Paradise, a U.S. Army Air Corps Fokker Tri-Motor completed the first Transpacific slight from the United States to Hawaii. 
c. 1956 the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956 was signed into law by President Eisenhower creating our Interstate highway system.
d. 1972 SCOTUS in the case of Furman v. Georgia ruled that arbitrary and inconsistent application of the death penalty violated the 8th and 14th Amendments and constituted cruel and unusual punishment.
e. 2014 ISIS declared its caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria; the JV team as Obama foolishly called them is still there and as the attack in Istanbul showed yesterday it is still very lethal, totally mocking Obama’s assertions that it has been contained.  
Reflections on the death penalty: “I'm not in favor of the death penalty. But I'm in favor of locking these people away in maximum security units where they can never get out. They can never escape. They can never be paroled. Lock the bad ones away. But you gotta rethink everybody else." John Grisham, noted American author.

Starbucks Service At Wilson and Harbor

Starbucks is the office and Mecca of the future where the internet and coffee combines
To bring together the best of all ideas, the best of all minds
Even if not doing business on the internet a chance to unwind
Get here early or be forever standing in a long coffee line
Plugs are the currency more valued than diamonds or gold
Only linked can your access unlimited to the internet be in a winning mold
But though we always live in hyper internet space
A magnet to why we caffeine internet addicts flock in a never ending race
Still we have to take a breath and look back
To the pre internet days when the most important thing was not a connect but trash to attack
Another day in the epitome of the technology internet technology caffeine place
Watching a young Barista the trash remove and an empty bag to it replace
Only on the Alaskanpoet blog this foundation to service always be preserved
And why at a Starbucks on Wilson and Harbor you always get the service you deserve 
Without a name tag but it would not matter for at this Starbucks the service is always to a high standard the same
Without the service of baristas this dark, dingy coffee shop near the waterfront in Seattle would never have risen to such great fame

Ketchikan and Starbucks

One of the great joys to be a poet, a child of the Midnight Sun
Is to meet members of the Golden State on their first Alaskan run
Too many have already done the plunge and the Wrangell Narrows have missed
Too tethered to the cruise ships’ intense caloric abyss
But today this poet whose father’s bones overlook the Narrows as the seine boats  north and south ply
Met a mother and son whose spirit of adventure to go north to the Land of the Midnight Sun could not be defied
Unlike the prospectors of 98 they came north to south heading back to the lower 48
Most likely with their seafood appetites totally in cholesterol lowering to totally sate
This woman with a Ketchikan tee shirt and sons hopefully to the Great Land will return
To with a husband more halibut cheeks and fiddleheads to earn
Bathed in the spirit of the Northern Lights
And the spirit of Alaskans to always when it comes to those in need to do what is right!

We Are At War And Lynch Protect Us With Diversity Training

As we face a determined enemy theology of radical Islam, a martyrying adversity
Lynch in her wisdom sacrifices our first line of defense to have classes in diversity
We are at war with radical Islam that requires all Muslims to jihad support
No ifs ands or buts no possible but we are peaceful Muslim retorts
Lynch is following lockstep the ideas of a complete MIA CinC fool
Who will not face reality that this caliphate must die, blown away by all our military tools
From the time he took office on radical Islam he went into delusional mode and head in sand ignore
Look around to see the PC victims, the body bags filled with blood and gore
The Israelis do it surrounded by millions dedicated to kill them and feed their bodies to the fish in the sea
Obama and now Lynch think we and radical Islam can live in peace and harmony
Read Defense of Muslim Nations by Azzam and you will quickly learn
We Americans are infidels and must convert so our way of life will never return
The Jews failed to read Mein Kampf and the West never chose to act and 6 million were in the ovens burned
We are at war and bias training will not help against an army of martyrs who the rules of decency and tolerance spurn
Ms. Lynch in your idea of love and PC that will add to the Islamist butchers’ bill
How about more secretive profiling that will make it easier for Islamists to quickly find and kill?
