Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For July 2, 2018 Obama’s legacy has just received another blow that enhances his image as liar and deceiver in chief to the American people as a high ranking cleric in Iran announced that Obama granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians during negotiations of the Iran nuclear deal and despite assurances to the contrary gave access to the U.S. financial system to Iran (so desperate to build his legacy he would do anything to get a deal with Iran that Trump has pulled out of); Brian Ross of the Always Biased Cack Network who was demoted for falsely reporting that Flynn had met with the Russians in a report that tanked the stock market announced that he was leaving ABC; ex Border Patrol chief Vitiello has taken over running ICE which is under assault by the left as a deportation force and strongly defended by the Trump Administration; “comedian” Michelle Wolf has stooped to new vulgar lows in attacking Ivanka Trump as “vaginal mesh” and “herpes” while the other Bobsey twin of hate Samantha Bee has apologized for her C-word attack on Ivanka; LeBron James is coming to Los Angeles to play for the Lakers; Tesla has finally hit its production goals of 5,000 Model 3 cars per week; the FBI has regained some trust of the American people by its arrest fo Demetrius Pitts, an African American Muslim, for plotting to blow up a 4th of July Parade in Cleveland, Ohio; in Chicago through July 1, 2018, 1399 people mostly of color have been shot by mostly people of color, of whom 219 have died (when will Chicago get serious about this carnage or is this the case of true racism as a Blue run city turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to the slaughter of people of color by people of color?).

On this day in:
a. 1937 Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan were last heard from as they were trying to complete an equatorial circumnavigation of the world.
b. 1962 the first Wal-Mart store was opened in Rogers, Arkansas.
c. 1964 President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 designed to prevent discrimination in public places and accommodations.
d. 2001 the AbioCor artificial heart was first implanted; the company making the artificial heart discontinued production after 12 hearts were implanted with an average extension of life of five months.
e. 2002 Steve Fossett became the first person to circumnavigate solo in a balloon.
Reflections on the existence of UFO’s: “More than 10,000 sightings have been reported, the majority of which cannot be accounted for by any ‘scientific’ explanation, eg that they are hallucinations, the effects of light refraction, meteors, wheels falling from aeroplanes, and the like…. They have been tracked on radar screens… and the observed speeds have been as great as 9,000 mph. I am convinced that these objects do exist and they are not manufactured by any nation on earth. I can therefore see no alternative to accepting the theory that they come from an extraterrestrial source.”Air Chief Marshall Lord Dowding, Commanding Officer of the RAF during WWII.
