Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 12, 2017 MSNBC, the MSM and Blue leaders like Kaine, Blumenthal and Schiff who really should know better are way over rhetoric top and are in a hysterical absolute lather over revelations of Donald Trump, Jr. email chains with Russians who allegedly had incriminating dirt on HRC and his meeting with this whacko Russian lawyer who had no dirt and wanted to talk in reality about adoption (more likely than not had it existed, it would have been the quid pro quo with the felon and her husband on the transfer of 20 percent of our uranium assets to Russian controlled entities—grasping at straws in the ongoing Russian collusion delusion); if the junior senator from California who wants to be president in a big way with zero experience like Obama but sadly is proving to be a demagogue like Boxer only on steroids want to appear to be of presidential timber, she ought to conduct a tutorial that meeting with a Russian lawyer to supposedly hear what “dirt” on HRC she has may be evidence of a lack of judgment but it certainly is not treason or remotely criminal; a glimmer of hope that the market desperately needs to keep the Trump rally going, McConnell is keeping the Senate in session for several more weeks in August to work on Obamacare repeal and replacement (the 535 denizens of the Swamp should get a Labor Day Weekend off only until they have passed tax cut legislation, profit repatriation, infrastructure funding and appropriations for a border wall); in another example of the hysteria and potential criminal activity by the left, Rep Scott Hamann tweeted that Trump is a ½ term president especially if Hamann got within 10 feet of him—sound like a death threat?; not to be outdone on the political rhetoric front two first class idiotic and inane scumbags from the House, Representative Sherman from California and Representative Green from Texas have filed articles of impeachment for obstruction of justice due to the firing of Comey (data dump yesterday clearly shows a botched and pathetic “investigation” of HRC by the FBI and the two people that should be charged with obstruction of justice are Lynch and Obama); if Blue Senators have any qualms about a wall and Kate’s Law take note of an illegal twice deported any crossing back into the U.S. seven times who while drunk crashed his van and killed his passenger on a Nebraska freeway http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/07/12/illegal-immigrant-who-snuck-into-us-7-times-was-drunk-during-deadly-crash-prosecutor-says.html; through July 11, 1936 people have been shot in Chicago 336 of whom have died (hopefully the ATF agents Trump has sent in will help put a damper on this carnage.

1. Simplicity Day—on a day in which holidays and observances around the world are few and far between; today is a good day to celebrate the tranquility of keeping it simple in honor of Henry David Thoreau’s birth on this day in 1817.
2. 2nd Day of Naadam—if in Mongolia you could be watching Mongolian wrestling, archery and horse racing in venues across the country.
3. 1979 Number One Song—the number one song in 1979 on a run of 5 weeks in that position was “Bad Girls” by Donna Summer. Here is a performance by her of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbGKeyCywTY Sadly the music stopped for her on May 12, 2012 from lung cancer believed by her to have been caused by exposure to toxic fumes and ash on 9/11.
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “ingannation” which means deception a word that describes the modus operandi of too many of our Swamp denizens.
5. Mr. Television--celebrating the birth on this day in 1908 of Mendel Berlinger better known to his fans as Milton Berle who was one of television’s early stars.
