Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For November 5, 2019 The number of rapes by illegal aliens in Montgomery County, Maryland has finally caused its Board of Supervisors to accept reality and reverse its inane and dangerous sanctuary city policy but tool late for the victims of the vicious rapes perpetrated; Warren has finally sent out the smoke signals of what her Medicare Plan for All in including illegals and estimates are that it would come with a $53 trillion price tag, payroll taxes of up to 49% and a loss of at least 2,000,000 jobs (collateral damage as Warren blithely dismisses); liberals have short memories of thousands of veterans waiting to obtain appointments to see VA doctors as Britain’s single payer health system is facing historic wait times to see physicians (good news for us is like the surge of Canadians who come here for medical care, we should be seeing a lot more British medical tourists); the U.S. who leads the world in carbon emission reduction due in large part to the switch to natural gas which the Blues want to severely curtail by eliminating fracking has started the process to pull out of the Paris Climate Accords while China and India, major carbon emitters continue to expand their coal fueled electrical generating plants (no wonder Trump is following through on his campaign pledge to remove a major job killer; Behar is on a political role as she tries to achieve a Blue in the White House goal, urging that Warren pull out so Biden now running 4th in Iowa and clearly Hunter and gaffe damaged goods can achieve the nomination; the polls in Kentucky’s gubernatorial race has closed with the Republican leading and expanding his majority (a victory here after Trump campaigned will send a chilling message to any Republican Senator thinking of breaking ranks to support impeachment); Amazon and Jeff Bezos may be tiring of the leftist surge in the Seattle City Council with a major PAC Contribution to a centrist group linked to the Seattle Chamber of Commerce (when will the left realize that socialist programs are an anathema to job growth and prosperity?); the moniker “the Amigo Land” no longer describes Mexico as it has levied a $15 per person tax to visit Cabo San Lucas and in Sonora, 9 members of the LeBaron Clan, Mormons who have lived there for decades were shot dead by cartel members while at least a dozen members of the La Mora clan have been reported missing (Trump has declared war on the cartels most likely to no avail as long as drugs pour though or porous borders to fund their criminal activities); the stench from the Always Biased Cack Network is overpowering after ABC Anchor Amy Robach was caught on a hot mic claiming ABC spiked an expose on Jeffrey Epstein three years ago (dime against a dollar done to protect the Clintons, given Bill’s proclivity to fly on the “Lolita Express”; in Chicago as of November 4, 2019, 2383 have been shot, of whom, 409 have died; in Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, is coming in second place in the amount of gun deaths as 288 have been murdered (when will Chicago and Baltimore 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 and when will the left focus on the problem of color on color shootings in Blue run cities which have been more deadly and more numerous than random mass shootings?
