Testy Biden Lashes Out at MSM Reporter For Going Off Script


In order to hide his diminishing mental capabilities Biden must stick to a prepared script
Explains to a tee why against a reporter who asked about vaccinations instead of Iraq her he ripped
A testy “you are such a pain in the neck”
Then realizing his mistake the walk back words to elect
Explains the note cards, teleprompter and the questions in advance from the press
Vain attempts by his handlers to realization he is mentally fading suppress
No matter how his supporters or the MSM fawners his mental state spin
Becoming clearer each day that he is not the person in the Oval Office we should have in
Invoke the 25th even though Harris would be above her head
Any one she selected then as president be rejected by the Senate Reds
A wing and a prayer that she without a vice president would survive until 2022
And Reds ousted majorities in the House and Senate from the Blues
Not sure if a risk worth taking because without a VP, Pelosi next in line would be
She has already shown her bent to rule in unchecked tyranny

Blue Mayors Cutting Police Budgets for Residents Yet Beefing Up Police Details for Them

 In France Marie Antoinette lost her head for dismissing the people suffering with “Let Them Eat Cake”

Today’s out of touch elites dismiss the shootings with “From you the police we will take”
So with less police the 911 calls will be if answered at all the cops will be late
You will face bodily injury or death or if lucky only property as crime will increase not abate
Yet to today’s elected urban elite Blues
Police is for them and not for you
FOIA requests show Blue mayors are cutting the Thin Blue Line to the bone
But insuring the Blue Line to protect them is thickening to kept them in the safety zone
Worse even if you are not criminal only victim status trying to prevent
The Blue elite is seeking to your right to own a firearm circumvent
The mantra of the elite Blue is loud and clear
“Security if for me not for you when the felons appear”
Lightfoot, Breed, Scott, Gloria and Hancock and the list goes on
Our uncaring plantation voter owners aloof as shooting victims of color surging into the Forest Lawns
Any politician who votes to the police budget cut
Should have the door to having a private police detail shut
Like the rest of us mere mortals have to run the risk
That a 911 response due to cuts will be anything but timely or brisk

As Violent Crime Rises AOC Inanely Wants the Carceral System's Demise


AOC is spreading her idiocy into Ohio’s 11th District to Blue Leftist Nina Turner to support
While neighborhoods of color in Blue run urban cities  like Chicago are plagued with daily shooting reports
If she had even the smallest brain working in her head
She would be demanding more and better trained police but instead
She demands defunding the cops as from the Thin Blue Line to more cops be shed
Coupled with her demand to end the carceral system for blacks and browns that will leave more of their victims of color
This leftist idiot clearly with these demands has lost her mind
Totally to the real clear and present danger to blacks and browns totally blind
Shooters of color not cops and not white are shooting victims  almost always not white
In a steady stream of victims to hospitals and morgues 24/7 morning, noon and night
Prisons and jails are needed to take the shooters off the street
Without incarceration the end of safety to victims of color we will never defeat
Parole or no bail sadly does not work for too many of these thugs with guns in hand
If AOC succeeds however slightly in her carceral ending quest she will have the blood of innocents on her hands
But as to real suffering of real people from her acts she is so psychotic she can ignore
Distorted view of reality that her ears will not hear the shots nor see the spreading gore

Newsom Fearing Recall Stays Away from Debate


Finally Newsom showed that he has the vestiges of a working brain
From the first debate on the recall on August 4 he will refrain
He must have come to the realization his mistakes, hypocrisies and school closures he could not defend
He might actually fear that his term of Governor may come to an end
Recall candidates Jenner and Elder will be also MIA with prior scheduled events
But with Elder a much more astute rationale also being sent
With Newsome MIA and not on stage
Easy to attack each other but rightful attacks on Newsom hard to wage
Already from the Newsom camp the ads on the airways starting to appear
The recall effort is only a right wing attack resulting in an expensive election we should fear
With millions of jobless who suffered from the EDD computer system for checks meltdown
And the misery of schools closing, Newsom must think we are idiotic clowns
Will forget his assault on religious liberty to prevent worship when we needed it most
Or the do as I say not as I do French Laundry birthday dinner for a lobbyist toast
Sadly for Newsom the backlog at the EDD of millions of unemployment checks needed to be sent
Will not be ended by Recall Election Day so by voting yes the present and past jobless by voting will their anger vent

Pete and Chasten Buttigieg Suffering Stuck in $4500 a Month 1 Bedroom w/o Den--Welcome to Need Security in Defund the Police Citybedroo/


Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten Buttigieg are in a world of hurt it seems
Even with his $220,000 a year salary as Transportation Secretary they are struggling to live the American Dream
It seems that the monthly rent for their one bedroom apartment in a secure high rise is $4500 bucks
The two of them with Chasten as a school teacher out of work trying to make ends meet are out of luck
But most experts advise never to spend more than 30% of gross income on housing costs
Which means for this couple unlike most couples, frugality and budgeting is a skill long lost
This poet does not the Swamp’s rental market but others who do were quick to the couple mock
Touting there are many apartments with a much lower sticker shock
Maybe the couple is feeling the karma from the teachers’ union campaign
To fight to the bitter end to flush in school learning down the drain
Chasten teaches drama which does poorly on Zoom
To teach acting it’s maskless up close and personnel in the same room
Before for this couple we shed any sympathy tears
They own a second home on Lake Michigan to on weekends or recesses appear
Not sure either how much more the rent is due to security having to be spent
As violent crime soars in the Swamp as cops resign or pink slips are being sent
Maybe as Pete “suffers” and sees his wallet being drained
They might see the light and join the fight to the “Defund the Police” protests contain

July 25, 2021 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Reek Sunday


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not July 25, 2021       

            CV World Cases: The CV pandemic across the planet continues on a slowing down basis the new year with cases now over 194 million at  194,809,754  cases (194,374,129 cases  yesterday); 13,876,942 of which are active, 180, 925,951 closed with 176,750,758 recoveries (97.69% and 97.69% yesterday, and 4,174,993 deaths (2.31% and 2.31% yesterday) to continue the slow trend of increased cases with increased recovery percentages and decreased death percentage with some plateaus, dips, and rises.
            CV USA Cases: Total cases now over 35 million at 35,195,465 (35,185,347 yesterday)  with 5,060,794 active cases of which 8236 are serious or critical, (6551 yesterday and 8,599 on 3/25/2021) (now on a serious upswing due to Delta virus up to .016% of active cases and now a steady increase in the number of serious or critical cases to decrease the reduction from the 29,271 peak on 12/31/2020 to 21,035, 30,138,671 closed, with 626,762 deaths (2.08% and 2.08% yesterday) and with 29,511,909 recoveries (97.92% and 97.92% yesterday). Our death rate percentage continues to slowly improve and after many months is now .23% lower than the world’s death rate.

             Standing: On a deaths per million population measure on a steady   but slow climb to 1882 the U.S. ranks behind Peru (5855) the new number 1 which has had a quantum leap in deaths previously unmatched which was a change in the classification to give Peru the a new method of reporting to have a fatality rate of 9.32% of total cases now; Hungary the new number 2 has had a huge continuing surge in deaths with the increase now slowing down and improving slightly to  3.87% of its closed cases have died (3116), aping Hungary in terms of increase in deaths Bulgaria (264039),   Brazil (2568) which has been hit with a rapid rise in deaths and cases and passed us and Italy, Argentina (2273), Belgium (2166), (Italy (2120), Poland (1990), and the UK (1892) which had passed us despite leading world in testing and now has new deaths barely increasing),  and slightly better than Mexico (1828), Chile (1816), Romania (1794),  Spain (1736),  France (1706), Portugal (1701, Bolivia (1489),  Sweden (1438) that never closed its economy down like we did, and Switzerland (1250). 
              Tests: We have now conducted 523,608,953 (now at 1,573,784/M) compared to number 2 now France at 1,550,973 we are conducting more tests in number and on a per capital basis for all nations (other than those nations that contain small populations like Bahrain, Denmark, Israel, Malta, Singapore and UAE) other than the U.K. which remains as king of the mountain with respect to tests at 3,468, 873/M.
               CV Open Gate: Lost in the pronouncements by Biden and his lackeys   that there is no crisis of illegals surging across the border is that fact that COVID-19 is alive and well and spreading in the Northern Triangle and Mexico which been passed by Argentina to move down to 11th  on my list of deaths from the pandemic  at 4182/M with a fatality rate of 10.09% of closed cases and the 3 countries in the Northern Triangle in terms of active cases and deaths per million are as follows even though the data may be suspect as underreported (regardless of number we need no more cases):
                     Guatemala:  Active Cases:  34,845 Deaths/M 553
                     Honduras:    Active Cases: 181,611 Deaths/M 754
                     El Salvador:  Active cases:     6,409 Deaths/M 392
              US Vaccinations: As of 7/25/21 341.8 million doses at .590 million per day and in California 77,162 per day which means if the rate does not increase it will take us now some 5 months to have 75% of the population of California vaccinated which many believe is necessary to develop herd immunity (other than Flip Flop Fauci who may believe that 90% is required).  In California 44,661,671 total doses have been given (88.4% of doses received to exceed the U.S. average of 86.7%), but even with the pressure of a recall to be scheduled this fall which hopefully end Newsom’s term, California has finally has  not moved from  19th of the 50 states in terms of the percentage of doses administered as a percentage of doses delivered to the states and at 52.3% of its population fully vaccinated compared to the U.S. average of 49.1% has moved down from 17th tied with Delaware to 18th tied with Delaware among the 50 states.  A long way to go still to get herd immunity in terms of getting vaccines received into arms and the percentage of the population fully vaccinated compared to other states which means a great reason to recall this inept and hypocritical governor.
              Non  CV News: As the Delta variant continues to spread and infections among the unvaccinated continue to surge, Fauci was revealing that new mask mandates are being considered indoors and outdoors as Los Angeles is requiring masks indoors and outdoors; Blue Texas Rep Philip Cortez has returned to the State of Texas and is supposedly not facing arrest as Governor Abbot had threatened to continue discussions with Reds to lessen the false claims of “voter suppression (Reds have to talk about voter security as illegal voting cancels out legitimate votes); black Jarvis Johnson, Texas Blue who also returned to Texas was on MSNBC saying he is fearful that some “rural” cop is going to harm his son to become a Red hero (typical racist card attack coupled with a racist smear against police that he should be ashamed making); in disturbing news, William Freidman, the architect who designed Champlain Towers South was suspended in 1967 for gross incompetence of a building that had its pylons collapse in a hurricane; a flight preparing to leave SFO for Orlando after several passages received a text message of an Airsoft gun from a teen on board the plane via Airdrop out of an abundance of caution has everyone removed from the plane, rescreened then reboarded save the teen who sent the texts; Momentus discovered that it may be easier to launch satellites into space that get a suspect IPO by the SEC as the company pulled its IPO undercharges the company failed to disclose technology risks, misstated the existence of customers and neglected to inform investors the founder was a deemed security risk (not to let the dream die, the company is going to use a SPAC to take the company public albeit at a closer to Earth valuation); Feces City is considering a congestion tax on high paid drivers who enter the city along with a plan to procure high tech trash cans at $20,000 a pop (the only thing keeping California alive is Silicon Valley and the more cities like SFO seek to slice more and more of the Golden Eggs the more likely the entrepreneurs will leave and take the high paying jobs with them; angered Hamas’ low tech solution to attack Israel with balloon bombs like the Japanese the Pacific Northwest in World War II, Israel has unleashed its high tech planes and bombs to attack Hamas bases in Gaza; spend a little time in Feces City or the homeless tent cities in Venice and you cannot escape the solution that the Golden State is misnamed and should become the Iron Pyrite State as the political cartoonist so aptly portrays the reality of the rot:                                                         

              Chicago Gun Violence: Hey is alive and well to collect data to show that through July 24, 2,021, gun violence involving mostly persons of color shooting mostly persons of color in Chicago is alive and well with 2454 persons shot of whom 422 have died.

              1.  Reek Sunday—can annual pilgrimage that has been held of the last Sunday in July in Ireland where some 15,000-30,000 in honor of St. Patrick’s fasting on Croagh Patrick in County Mayo for 40 days in 441 climb the mountain.
              2.  National Hire a Vet Day—created by Hire Our Heroes on June 5, 2017 and celebrated on this day since 2017 to promote the hiring of our vets who have the skills and training to be a valuable contribution to any employer.
              3. 1968 Number 1 Song USA—the number 1 song in 1968 on this day was “Grazing in the Grass” Hugh Masekela on a run of 2 weeks in that position to join 15 other songs that achieved number 1 status and join 9 other acts, including the first ever awarded posthumously to Otis Redding, who achieved their first number 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. Here is a recording  by Hugh Masekela of “Grazing in the Grass”:  Masekela, born in South Africa, was a noted  South African trumpeter, flugelhornist, cornets, singer and composer called by many as the “father of South African Jazz. He performed at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival and blew his last note on January 23, 2018 at age 78 due to prostate cancer.  
              4.  Word of the Day—the word of the day is “saturnism” which means lead poisoning which the residents of Flint, Michigan sadly had to endure given the sad nature of their water system.
              5.  From A Trailer Park Too Young a Star--celebrating the birth on this day in 1982 of child star Brad Renfro who came out of a trailer park with no acting experience to star in The Client at age 11 and to go on to appear in 21 feature films before alcohol and drugs got the best of him to die of acute alcohol and drug intoxication on January 15, 2008 at the age of 25.

              On this day in:
a. 1965 in a major shift in pop music, iconic singer Bob Dylan used an electric guitar at the Monterey Pop Festival.
               b. 1969 in the perhaps the first step in the realization following the Tet Offensive that the Vietnam War was not winnable at home, President Nixon announced the Nixon Doctrine which stated the U.S. expected its Asian allies to provide for their own defense as it would begin the Vietnamization of the war.
               c. 1978 to the joy of infertile couples everywhere, Louis May Brown, the first person conceived with in vitro fertilization, was born in London and is still alive today at the age of 43.

               d. 2000 Air France Flight 1450 chartered to take passengers to NYC to board a cruise ship ran over debris on the runway while taking off, blowing out a tire which sent debris into the landing bay, causing rupture of fuel tanks which caught fire crashing the plane into a nearby hotel in the Concorde’s first crash in 27 years, killing all aboard and 4 in the hotel along with 6 injuries.
               e.  2010 WikiLeaks published 91,000 classified documents about the U.S. War in Afghanistan and despite efforts by the U.S. the leaker has not been identified. 
               Reflections on a prediction that has come true in spades for countless couples : “One-third of all female infertility is the result of blocked fallopian tubes. If fertilization could be done in the lab and then the fertilized egg implanted in the womb, it would get around that problem. Millions of women who cannot have children would suddenly be able to.” James D. Watson, noted American micro biologist who with Frick revealed the double helix structure of the DNA molecule.

Protests Over Evils Imagined or Real Still Alive and Well in the Olympics


The Olympics were perhaps first politicized in 1936 not by the athletes but by the state
As  Hitler wanted to showcase to the world its domination by the Master Aryan race would await
Effort and best laid plans went down the drain
As Jesse Owens Hitler’s plans with 4 golds restrained
In 1968 this time 2 athletes tried to in sports politics inject
Smith and Thomas on the podium with the black power fist held high and erect
In Tokyo the political protest virus is still alive and well
The USA Women’s Soccer Team kneeling to the need to racial “injustice quell”
Focused on the myth of systematic racism to be stamped out at any cost
These heavily favored  athletes by Sweden were then skunked in a 3 to zip loss
Sadly not only is the U.S. infected by his politicization disease
Costa Rican gymnast Alvarado ended her routine with a kneel and raised fist salute to the BLM to please
Israeli judoka Butbul reached the quarterfinals because 2 competitors withdrew to Israel’s policies in Gaza complain
He lost but the protesters will be sent out of the Olympic Village on a plane
Athletes are citizens and should not lose their rights of speech and protest
But to get to the Olympics is more like a paid job from a nation’s  largesse
And like the ideal of the ancient Olympics that during the Games saw a truce to war
The Olympics today should remain not a venue for protests over real or imagined evils to soar
