December 6, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Bartender Appreciation Dayie


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For December 6, 2019 The Cack News Network rating have dropped to its lowest primetime ratings in three years (what has to be amazing given its lack of objectivity why anyone watches CNN; one week and two deadly shootings at U.S. military installation, first in Pearl Harbor and the second one today a Pensacola Naval Air Station were an aviation military pilot from Saudi Arabia shot and killed three and wounded seven others including two security officers who killed him (obviously terrorism is not being ruled out); like the bookend of bias that he is Eric Swalwell has defended Lying Adam Schiff’s release of Nunez phone records and has the audacity that one cannot predict that the Blues will vote for impeachment (most of Blues have already made up their mind the moment Trump stepped down the escalator to declare his candidacy); after calling an Iowa voter a liar and challenging another to a push up contest, Joe Biden’s campaign seems off the rails as he attacked the MSM for suggesting that AOC represents the face of the Democratic Party (sure seems that she and her fellow Squad Members are the face); in another example of we are not alone in space a large asteroid 187’ by 426.5’ will pass by Earth at 17.6 Lunar Distances on Sunday; in another example of driving and drinking do not mix, Country Singer Kylie Rae Harris with a BAT of three times the limit and traveling at 102 m.p.h. en route to a concert was killed when she swerved in to incoming traffic;  in Chicago with a new interim police chief now having to replace a fired police chief as of December 5, 2019, 2572 have been shot, of whom, 436 have died; Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, is coming in second place in the amount of gun deaths as 316 have been murdered, a number which has passed all of 2014’s death and is closing in on 2016’s yearly total of 318’s fatalities but 2017’s record of 342 looks like it won’t be broken (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?).
     As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, factoids of interest for this day in history, a musical link to Destiny’s Child,  the fact you do not speak psittastically, a relevant quote on bartenders by Jack McDevitt,  secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like Father’s Day, college graduations, 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. Bartender Appreciation Day--created by Sailor Jerry Rum in 2011 to honor those noted mixologists/part-time psychologists who range from pourers of beer to cocktail works of art.
2. National Microwave Day—celebrating the serendipitous observation in 1945 by a Raytheon engineer working on a r project that microwave rays melted a chocolate bar in his pocket which ultimately lead to the introduction of a six foot tall microwave for food applications in 1954 and the device is an ubiquitous appliance in most homes today.
3. 2000 Number 1 Number One Song— the number one song in 2000 on this day on a run of 11 weeks in the position was “Independent Woman” by Destiny’s Child. Here is a recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lPQZni7I18 The all girl band played from 2000-2006 with several cast changes with one of the more famous being Beyonce.
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “psittastically” which means to repeat mechanically in a parrot like fashion which describes the MSM when they are on a roll attacking Trump.
5. Don’t Always Need Genes to Succeed--celebrating the birthday on this day in 1959 of Satoru Iwata, the 4th president of Nintendo and the first not related by birth or marriage to the founding family; sadly his management and game programming skills could not outrun a tumor in his bile duct and he died from complications arising from removal surgery on July 15, 2015.

      a. 1933 Federal District Court Judge James Woolsey ruled that James Joyce’s Ulysses was bit obscene.

    Reflections on being a bartender: “There are few professions whose primary objective is to advance the cause of humanity rather than simply to make money or accrue power. Among this limited group of humanitarians I would number teachers, nurses, bookstore owners, and bartenders.” Jack McDevitt, noted American Science Fiction author

December 5, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Soil Day


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For December 5, 2019 The academic equivalent of the Three Stooges made a mockery of their law school profession due to their bias and anti-Trump views  and in Karlan’s case besmirched the reputation of my alma mater with her sick scripted quip about Barron not helped by her later half backed apology (fortunately the lone objective professor Hurley demolished their reasonings in the same way a Ram running back Gurley would flatten most defenses); Biden seems to be getting a bit testy in Iowa due to his dropping standings in the polls as he called a voter a “damn liar” and challenged him to a push up contest; Pelosi announced the House will be moving forward to draft Articles of Impeachment and snapped back with a straight face to the press that she is not motivated by hate against Trump (may not be now but impeachment could very well mean that she will be the first Speaker of the House removed from the position twice); while the Blues are on a fast track to impeach Trump, Trump today was working as president meeting with the members of the permanent members of the Security Council; just when you thought that lying Schiff could go no lower, revelations that this total scum bag has released personal phone records of the ranking minority member on his Intel Committee David Nunes, two of Trump’s personal attorneys and an investigative reporter that Schiff detests (at the Senate trial for Trump, this pathetic liar must be called along with his staff and the “whistle blower” to expose his lies and the degree of collusion); while impeachment trial may still be dragging on next year as Americans face the daunting task of completing their tax returns, they will enjoy having the 4th lowest tax rates in the world while the Blues’s 2020 ideas could raise taxes to the highest in the industrialized world (Blues have trouble realizing people vote with their wallets); Iran may have killed over 1,000 protestors in the recent round of demonstrations and suffered the seizure of large quantities of missile parts en route to Yemen (and the mullahs are dumb enough to demand that crippling sanctions against them be lifted); Starbucks is yielding to the fashion times by consenting to baristas wearing one item of facial piercing no larger than a dime;  in Chicago with a new interim police chief now having to replace a fired police chief as of December 4, 2019, 2568 have been shot, of whom, 435 have died; Baltimore ith a fraction of Chicago’s population, is coming in second place in the amount of gun deaths as 316 have been murdered, a number which has passed all of 2014’s death and is closing in on 2016’s yearly total of 318’s fatalities but 2017’s record of 342 looks like it won’t be broken (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?).
     As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, factoids of interest for this day in history, a musical link to Santan feat. Rob Thomas,  the fact you do not yet and maybe never have psilosis, a relevant quote on Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott by Jeanne Theoharris,  secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like Father’s Day, college graduations, 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. International Day for Volunteerism for Social and Economic Developmentcreated by the UN General Assembly to promote volunteerism to further social and economic development.
2. World Soil Day—created on December 20, 2013 by the UN General Assembly and celebrated on this day since 2015 to promote the awareness of soil to food security, agriculture and the mitigation of climate change and poverty.
3. 1999 Number 1 Number One Song— the number one song in 1999 on this day on a run of 12 weeks in the position was “Smooth” by Santana feat. Rob Thomas. Here is a recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Whgn_iE5uc
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “psilosis” which means a loss of hair often leading to baldness.
5. Little in Size Not Talent--celebrating the birthday on this day in 1932 of Richard Wayne Penniman, better known as one of the icons of Rock ‘n Roll, Little Richard, still alive today at 87 after beating an earlier cocaine addiction but no longer performing.   
On this day in: 
      a. 1952 a cold fog descended on London and in the weeks and months that ensued claimed the lives of over 12,000 people.  
      b. 1955 E.D. Nixon and Rosa Parks began the Montgomery Bus Boycott due to rules requiring blacks to sit in the rear of the city’s buses.
     c. 1964 Lloyd J. Old discovered the linkage between the major histocomplexity complex and disease—in this case mouse leukemia, opening up an understanding between MHC and the immune response.  
  d. 2007 19 year old Robert Hawkins shot and killed 8 people and wounded 4 others before killing himself at the Von Maur Department Store in the Westlands Mall, Omaha, Nebraska.
  e. 2017 the International Olympics Committee banned Russia from competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics due its doping of athletes during the 2014 Winter Olympics.
     Reflections on the Montgomery Bus Boycott: “Rosa Parks drew solace & sustenance from the long history of Black resistance before her time, placing her action & the Montgomery bus boycott in the continuum of Black protest. Her speech notes during the boycott read: 'Reading histories of others--Crispus Attucks through all wars--Richard Allen--Dr. Adam Clayton Powell Sr. & Jr. Women Phyllis Wheatley--Sojourner Truth--Harriet Tubman, Mary McLeod Bethune. For Parks, the ability to keep going, to know that the struggle for justice was possible amidst all the setbacks they encountered, was partly possible through reading & referencing the long Black struggle before her.”― Jeanne Theoharis, A More Beautiful and Terrible History: The Uses and Misuses of Civil Rights History

December 4, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Cabernet Franc Day


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For December 4, 2019 The crow buffet at MSM is in full speed after their power darling Harris left the race as she was the chosen one in their mind to beat Trump (grasping at straws the “pundits” just can’t get it straight as they are blinded by Trump derangement syndrome); after the Shiff Circus attention now on Nadler’s Judiciary Committee where three leftist law professors and one objective one Turley will conduct a Con Law Class on what merits impeachment which Trump’s conduct no matter how distasteful it may be proven to be does not equal  “treason, high crimes or misdemeanors” (watch for Turley to destroy the case for impeachment and for Fox to play tapes of a very obese almost cabbage doll like Nadler slamming the Clinton Impeachment with arguments almost identical to those raised by Reds except in Clinton’s case he clearly had committed crimes like perjury for which he was disbarred); testy times at the NATO meetings as Trump after being mocked by several leaders announced he is heading home (sadly not a good sign no matter how one feels about NATO members not living up to their obligations to spend at least 2% of their GNP on defense which should give great fodder to MSM’s claims that he is not acting like a president); the brother of deceased cartel kingpin Pablo Escobar, Roberto Escobar has come out with a foldable  smart phone for $349 which he claims is next to impossible to break into (just what we do not need to have in the hands of drug traffickers for obvious reasons); the largest progressive veterans organization VoteVets has just endorsed Pete Buttigieg who continues to rise in the polls; with Harris thankfully out of the race MSM pundits are bemoaning that the debate state for the DNC’s next debate will be all white as the sole remaining black Senator “Spartacus” Booker has not met the DNC’s polling threshold;  in Chicago with a new interim police chief now having to replace a fired police chief as of December 3, 2019, 2565 have been shot, of whom, 435 have died; Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, is coming in second place in the amount of gun deaths as 316 have been murdered, a number which has passed all of 2014’s death and is closing in on 2016’s yearly total of 318’s fatalities but 2017’s record of 342 looks like it won’t be broken (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?).

18 Feet Snowy Mt. Shasta Climate Change Reality Dose


Mt. Shasta in California has been covered in four days with 18 feet of snow
Where will the proponents of climate change find a safe place for predictions to go?
Nothing like a dose of reality to stifle the proponents of climate change
At 18 feet in four days makes you wonder if predictions they need to rearrange
If manmade climate change is something we really should fear
With glaciers melting and rising, flooding ocean water to appear
Still a question not asked and answers yet to be heard
If we cut carbon emissions to zero which for any economy is absurd
Would such a drastic step coupled with starvation never yet seen
Achieve the end of climate change sought by the Greens?
Or would it most likely send a depopulated Earth back to the pre Industrial Revolution Age
Where starvation and disease a deadly war on humanity would wage
How can our economy be totally crippled
With our total carbon emissions today a slight ripple
And China and India with their carbon emissions spigot open to max flow
Our growth crushed and theirs pedal to the metal continuing to grow?

December 3, 2019 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Giving Tuesday


Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For December 3, 2019 On straight party lines, 13-9 the Intel Committee voted to adopt the Democratic Party’s Impeachment vote which means it will be going to Nadler’s Judiciary Committee to draw up and vote on articles of impeachment; the illegal alien supporter queen devoid of ideas that would work for us and having staff and donors bail like people escaping the plague has dropped out of the presidential primary race (before we Californians start cheering, sadly we now are faced with her now able to concentrate imposing her leftist misery upon us; as was expected Schiff’s Star Chamber’s report recommended impeachment of Trump for endangering U.S. security by delaying arms shipments to Ukraine and coercing them to investigate his political opponent Joe Biden and his son Hunter (ironic that Ukraine says to coercion and Trump authorized lethal defensive weapons and released the arms package while a feckless Obama sent the country MRE’s and blankets); if you thought the circus by Schiff was contentious, hold on to your hats for the impeachment hearings held by Nadler (from even before he was elected the left and the Deep State have worked tirelessly to prevent his election and once elected to remove him); the 300 page report if one can stop laughing while reading it is a joke with a punch line calling for some unbiased succinct summaries if the American people are going to understand the issues; on the legal front an appellate court has ruled that Deutsche Bank and Capital One Financial Corporation must comply with House subpoenas and turn over financial records of Trump in their possession while Trump has taken his case t SCOTUS to block release of his tax returns; on the homeless vigilante front in Oakland, awash with homeless and the filth, drugs, disease and rodents homeless encampments bring, large logs have suddenly appear on two street blocks to block homeless from parking their cars and RVS in front of businesses (understand the NIMBY attitude but better to try to address the problem which Blue run cities seem incapable of addressing; Elizabeth Warren has gone delusional over her chances of winning as she announced she will wear a Planned Parenthood scarf at her inauguration; Ruffalo’s anti-capitalism rants and $30,000,000 net worth created on the backs of those ordinary Americans dumb enough to fork over outrageous ticket prices for admission and popcorn hopefully will trigger a boycott by the hands that feed you; in Chicago with a new interim police chief now having to replace a fired police chief as of December 1, 2019, 2559 have been shot, of whom, 432 have died; Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, is coming in second place in the amount of gun deaths as 313 have been murdered, a number which has passed all of 2014’s death and is closing in on 2016’s yearly total of 318’s fatalities but 2017’s record of 342 looks like it won’t be broken (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?).
     As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, factoids of interest for this day in history, a musical link to Elton John,  the fact you are not a pseudologue, a relevant quote on achieving despite disabilities by Leif Gregerson,  secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like Father’s Day, college graduations, 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.

Newsweek Caught With Pants Down on False Thanksgiving Trump Report


The problem with the MSM is that it is so geared up to Trump always attack
Matters not one wit whether they have waited to discover the facts
Newsweek ran a Thanksgiving story that Trump was celebrating on the Mar-a-Logo greens
Only problem is that if the reporter had looked, Trump was nowhere to be seen
Instead our president was landing in Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan
To bring some joy and comfort to those troops serving in a Taliban infested land
Not spending time to choose which iron or club to use
But rather which military tools against the Taliban to insure they come to the table or lose
Caught with their “journalist” pants down
Newsweek looked like a total clown
Reporter was promptly fired
But given the anti-Trump nature of his piece will probably be soon rehired
The editor did not escape the public “fake news” wrath
He was demoted to take a dent in his upward career path
Another example that when it comes to news on Trump skepticism be sought
More likely than not the MSM news will be fake corroded by pervasive rot

This Page Victim Card Won't Hunt


Love-bird anti-Trumper Lisa Page
Is once again before IG Report on center stage
Trying with the aid of the MSM to move from villain to victim
In an interview with Molly Jong-Fast claiming I did nothing wrong dictim
It’s Trump’s fault for attacking this innocent girl who is so love struck
She teamed up to alert the American people of Trump’s dangers with Peter Strzok
Cards thrown by Blues of all kinds so often they are no longer playable as too tattered
A classic ploy of someone accused to leak ahead of released info before totally battered
Strzok and Page what a lovely guilty pair
With anti-Trump chilling bias beyond compare
These two lovebirds are not heroes or victims only rotten their very core
Trying their best to illegally try to remove a legally elected president they abhor
We await for the IG Report on pins and needles
While Page desperately with MSM a victim role tries to wheedle.

Social Media Iron Curtain Descends On Reds


The Iron Curtain of Social Media like Twitter on Red politicians continues to descend
Choking off their ability to their messages and funding appeals send
The latest is Danielle Stella running against Omar
That Twitter now from Twitter wishes to bar
Her crime was to assert if Omar had passed classified material to Iran it was treason
Suggesting if true, hanging would be within reason
Google has joined the Social Media Iron Curtain by banning Trump political ads
Accepting social media’s blame banning on algorithms means we’ve been had
Algorithms do not spring forth as Immaculate Conceptions
They spring from biased minds bent on political deceptions
The more founders of the Tech Giants see their wealth grow
The anti-conservative manna they try to sow
Thanks to the likes of Zuckerberg, Dorsey, Sergey and Brin
Conservatives shut down in their efforts to voters try to win
Without capitalism to provide a medium for their creative seeds to sprout
These biters of the hand that feeds them would be not on the inside but on the out

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For December 2, 2019 Jimmy Carter our oldest living ex-president is back in the hospital again, this time for an urinary tract infection (hang in there Jimmy—Habitat for Humanity needs you!); Bloomberg News which has in an insult to a free press indicated it will not investigate its owner, Mike Bloomberg and all Blue candidates only Trump has rightfully been banned from all Trump campaign events (shades of Pravda imitating a free press in the form of Bloomberg News); Trump while boarding Marine 1 to head for Air Force 1 and a NATO meeting in London slams Nadler for scheduling his committee impeachment hearing while he is attending a meeting the time of which had been set a year ago (nothing like trying to diminish the U.S. in front of its NATO allies by having impeachment hearings while he is meeting with them); Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago who is anything but a supporter of the Chicago Police Department has fired Chicago’s retiring Police Commissioner Johnson for ethical lapses following a day with 10 people shot but no one killed; Google has reaffirmed its political Iron Curtain status by removing Trump 2020 campaign ads (blocking access to social media is a clear and present danger to the 1st Amendment that the left gives only lip service to); Lisa Page the love struck anti-Trump FBI agent for Peter Strzok  on the eve of the IG’s Report that will most likely be devastating has tried to pre-empt the release with hyper rabid anti-Trump “journalist” Molly Jong-Fast of the Daily Beast in a forlorn attempt to convince a skeptical public and a doubting Mrs. Strzok she did nothing wrong; Ruffalo may not win an Oscar but he wins the hypocrite of the decade award with his $30 million + net worth for slamming the capitalist system than made him wealthy; in Chicago with a new interim police chief now having to replace a fired police chief as of December 1, 2019, 2556 have been shot, of whom, 432 have died; Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population, is coming in second place in the amount of gun deaths as 313 have been murdered, a number which has passed all of 2014’s death and is closing in on 2016 yearly total of 318’s fatalities but 2017’s record of 342 looks like it won’t be broken (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?).

1. Cyber Monday—coined by Ellen Davis of the National Retail Federation in 2005 to acknowledge and promote the importance of online shopping which continues to grow each year and in a small way aids in the curbing of greenhouse gas emissions as shoppers can forego the endless circling in a parking lot looking for parking spaces.
2. Special Education Day—celebrated since 2005, the anniversary of the passage of Individuals with Disabilities Education Act which prevents children with special education needs from being frozen out of our public education system.
3. 1996 Number 1 Number One Song— the number one song in 1996 on this day on a run of 11 weeks in the position was “Un-Break My Heart” by Toni Braxton. Here is a recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2Rch  This record selling artist and songwriter still going strong but slowed a bit by a diagnosis of Lupus.
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “pseudologia” which means lying in speech or writing, a trait along with hypocrisy that politicians have mastered to the tee.
5. A Bullet Proof Vest Not Part of His Designs--celebrating the birthday on this day in 1946 of noted fashion designer  Gianni Versace whose award winning fashions were cut on July 15, 1997 by serial killer Andrew Cunanan with a .40 caliber gunshot to the chest while returning to the steps of his mansion in Miami Beach. We never learned of his motive as he committed suicide on his houseboat 8 days later. 
On this day in: 
      a. 1954 the United States Senate voted 65-22 to censure Senator Joseph McCarthy for “conduct that tends to bring the Senate in to dishonor and disrepute.”
     b. 1962 after being asked to visit South Vietnam, Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield became the one of the first to speak out against our involvement in South Vietnam but sadly no one seemed to listen and over 58,000 lives were wasted in a war we could not win.
      c. 1982 Barney Clark received the first artificial heart that required him to remain in a hospital bed where he died 112 days after insertion. 
 d. 2001 Enron filed for Chapter XI Bankruptcy.
 e. 2015 in a glaring example of the dangers of Islamic radicalism of American citizens and loose criteria of admitting Muslims on fiancĂ©e visas, Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife Tashfeen Milik went to a San Bernardino county Christmas Party and shot and killed 14 people and wounded 22 others in 4 minutes before fleeing and later being shot and killed by police.
     Reflections on Cyber Retailing this Monday: “Clothes, shoes, glasses and just about everything we thought would never move fully online will all be online. The reason is simple: why leave the comfort of your own home when you can get something custom made to your exact size for less? I believe this is the future.” – Patrick Curtis, wallstreetoasis.com Add to that free shipping and free return shipping and you will hear the sound of taps being played for many brick and mortar retailers.
